No InstallTaonga: The Island Farmthedelite.comNetflix Cancellations And Renewals: The Full List For 2021thedelite.com Tuesday 30 November 2010 8:10 pm PUBLIC perception of the large energy providers has dived after November saw steep price hikes that will see households face near-record gas and electricity bills this winter, despite the fact that wholesale prices, at 1.7p a kilowatt-hour (kWh), are only half the level of 2008 when they reached 3.2p/kWh, and profits are healthy.On 12 November, British Gas surprised the energy sector by announcing it will increase gas and electricity prices by an average of seven per cent, with many customers facing as much as a 10 per cent rise. This follows news from Scottish & Southern Energy that it will raise prices by 9.4 per cent. Similar raises are expected from Scottish power and npower.These actions have not gone unnoticed. YouGov’s BrandIndex “Buzz” score, which charts the immediate balance of positive and negative sentiments among the population, registered significant drops for each of the big five energy companies during November – -14.4 for SSE, -18.8 for Scottish Power, -5.5 for npower.British Gas though took the greatest hit with its “Buzz” score dropping to a low of -43.2 on 19 November before recovering to -34.8 by the end of the month. This perhaps reflects the double hit of raising their prices whilst at the same time announcing significant profits. Centrica, which operates British Gas, told City analysts just over a week after the increases were announced that its profits were likely to be above expectations, hitting £2.2bn. Only one company, EDF Energy, has pledged to freeze bills over the winter. But though its “Buzz” score rose briefly to a high of 0.3 on the 12 November it has ended the month with an overall drop of -7.1. Stephan Shakespeare is founder and chief executive of YouGov.

Circuito no sólo es una victoria para las parejas homosexuales -hombres y mujeres- en California: es una victoria para todos los estadounidenses que creen que la ‘libertad y justicia para todos’ en el juramento que le enseñamos a nuestros niños realmente quiere decir TODOS”, según una declaración que enviara por correo electrónico la Rda. Canóniga Susan Russell, ex presidenta de Integrity USA, una agrupación que labora por la plena inclusión de personas homosexuales, bisexuales y transexuales en la Iglesia Episcopal.“Es también una victoria sobre los que erróneamente creen que la libertad de cultos garantizada por la Primera Enmienda les da libertad de escribir su teología sobre el matrimonio -o sobre cualquier otra cosa- en nuestra Constitución”, añadió Russell.Ella es la principal rectora adjunta en la iglesia de Todos los Santos [All Saints] en Pasadena, que el 28 de enero celebró su vigésimo aniversario de impartir bendiciones a parejas del mismo sexo. El Rdo. Canónigo George Regas, en enero de 1992, llevó a cabo la “primera bendición pública que se conozca” de una pareja del mismo sexo.Poco después de que los votantes de California aprobaran la Proposición 8 por un margen del 52% en noviembre de 2008, la iglesia de Pasadena anunció que sus clérigos dejarían de emitir certificados de matrimonio civil para cualquier clase de parejas hasta que el derecho al matrimonio civil estuviese a disposición de todas las parejas.“Desde 1888 el Tribunal Supremo ha dictaminado 14 veces que el matrimonio es un derecho civil fundamental, pero una y otra vez le ha sido negado a parejas de homosexuales -mujeres y hombres- que viven en relaciones de amor y fidelidad”, dijo la Rda. Caroline Hall, presidenta de Integrity USA. “Podemos alegrarnos de que en California han defendido nuestro derecho a un tratamiento igual ante la ley, y han reconocido nuestros matrimonios. Esto será un estímulo para todos aquellos que están librando esta batalla en sus propios estados”.Ella y otros líderes de Integrity pidieron a las seis diócesis episcopales de California que “extendieran una generosa respuesta pastoral a parejas de homosexuales varones y de lesbianas, de manera que nuestros derechos legales puedan celebrarse en nuestras iglesias y nuestros matrimonios ser bendecidos por la Iglesia de la misma manera que se les ofrece a nuestros amigos y familiares heterosexuales. Este es un símbolo en extremo importante de la genuina disposición de la Iglesia Episcopal de acoger a todas las personas, incluso a aquellos de nosotros que son homosexuales, bisexuales y transexuales y extenderles todos los sacramentos a todos los bautizados. Esperemos que los ciudadanos de California podrán muy pronto casarse con la persona que aman.“Si bien esto es una victoria enorme en la batalla por la igualdad matrimonial, esta pelea dista de haberse terminado” sigue diciendo la declaración de Integrity. “Los matrimonios de parejas del mismo sexo aún enfrentan discriminación federal debido a la llamada Ley en Defensa del Matrimonio (SOMA). Integrity se propone seguir luchando por la igualdad matrimonial tanto dentro como fuera de la Iglesia. No nos detendremos hasta que podamos cumplir la promesa de que todos realmente quiere decir TODOS”.“Estaba rebosante de alegría cuando escuché que el Tribunal de Apelaciones del Noveno Circuito había ratificado el derecho a la igualdad matrimonial”, escribió el Rvdmo. J. Jon Bruno, obispo de la diócesis de Los Ángeles, en una declaración hecha a ENS. “La Constitución de los Estados Unidos concede igualdad de derechos ante la ley, y la 14ª. Enmienda garantiza que todo ser humano, sin distinción de raza, etnia u orientación sexual, disfrute de la misma protección por parte de la Constitución de nuestro país”.Afirmando que es una “conclusión obvia” que los que se oponen al matrimonio homosexual apelarán el dictamen al Tribunal Supremo, Bruno dijo que oraba por “una decisión expedita de parte del Tribunal Supremo que echara abajo la oposición a la igualdad matrimonial”.“En verdad todos somos creados a imagen de Dios; por tanto, todos somos acreedores al respeto y dignidad de esa creación”, agregó Bruno. “Rogaré porque pronto hayamos recobrado el privilegio y el derecho a la igualdad matrimonial para todas las personas”.El Rvdmo. Chester Talton, obispo provisional de San Joaquín (California) convino [con esa opinión]. “Estoy complacido con el dictamen del Tribunal de Apelaciones del 9º. Distrito al declarar inconstitucional la Proposición 8”, dijo. “Creo que fue una ley divisiva y discriminatoria que intentaba rebajar la dignidad de las personas homosexuales. No creo que este dictamen rebaje la importancia del matrimonio para las personas heterosexuales, sino que contribuye a realzar la dignidad e igualdad de todas las personas”.Los partidarios de la Proposición 8 ya han dicho que se proponen apelar el dictamen. Una moratoria a los matrimonios de parejas del mismo sexo sigue en pie en tanto el proceso de apelaciones continúe.Según una declaración que apareció en la página web del Fondo para la Defensa de la Alianza (Alliance Defense Fund), una fundación legal de cristianos conservadores que respaldó la Proposición 8, la agrupación dijo no estar sorprendida de que “este ataque orquestado por Hollywood contra el matrimonio -ensayado en San Francisco- diera lugar a este resultado”.Pero la agrupación afirmó sentirse confiada en que el Tribunal Supremo defendería “la voluntad expresa del pueblo estadounidense”.La Iglesia Mormona, otro de los partidarios de la Proposición 8, que desempeñó un papel significativo en la aprobación de la medida, emitió una declaración diciendo que la iglesia “lamenta el dictamen de hoy”.“Los electores de California han decidido en dos ocasiones en una elección general que el matrimonio debe reconocerse tan sólo entre un hombre y una mujer”, según el portavoz Scott Trotter en un comunicado que apareció en la página web de la Iglesia. “Siempre hemos sostenido ese punto de vista. Los tribunales no deben alterar esa definición, especialmente cuando el pueblo de California se ha expresado tan claramente sobre el tema.“Millones de votantes en California enviaron un mensaje de que el matrimonio tradicional es básico para la sociedad. Ellos expresaron su deseo, mediante un proceso democrático, de mantener el matrimonio tradicional como el fundamento de la sociedad, como ha sido a lo largo de generaciones.“Reconocemos que este dictamen representa una continuación de lo que ha sido un enérgico debate público sobre los derechos de las personas a definir y proteger la institución fundamental del matrimonio. No hay duda de que el dictamen de hoy intensificará el debate en este país. Instamos a las personas de todos los bandos en este asunto a actuar con un espíritu de respeto mutuo y cortesía hacia los que tienen diferente opinión”.De la misma manera, la Iglesia Católica emitió una declaración “denunciando” el dictamen.“El dictamen del tribunal en el día de hoy es una grave injusticia que ignora la realidad de que el matrimonio es la unión de un hombre y una mujer”, según dijera el cardenal Timothy Dolan, presidente de la conferencia de obispos católicos de Estados Unidos.“La Constitución de los Estados Unidos con toda seguridad no prohíbe la protección del perenne significado del matrimonio, una de las piedras angulares de la sociedad. La población de California merece algo mejor. Nuestra nación merece algo mejor. El matrimonio merece algo mejor”.El dictamen del tribunal se produce el mismo año en que se someterá a la aprobación de la Convención General de la Iglesia Episcopal -en su 77ª. reunión trienal que sesionará del 5 al 12 de julio en Indianápolis- el uso experimental durante un período de tres años de bendiciones para uniones de personas del mismo sexo.La Comisión Permanente sobre Liturgia y Música de la Iglesia Episcopal ha puesto a disposición materiales en inglés y español con vistas a esta reunión.En su reunión de Anaheim en 2009, la 76ª. Convención General aprobó la Resolución C056, la cual dice que los obispos “particularmente en aquellas diócesis dentro de jurisdicciones civiles donde sean legales los matrimonios, las uniones civiles o las asociaciones domésticas de personas del mismo sexo, puede ofrecer una pastoral generosa que responda a las necesidades de esta Iglesia”.El dictamen del 7 de febrero ha sido tan sólo el último asalto en la accidentada batalla por la igualdad matrimonial en el estado [de California].En 2000, los votantes del estado aprobaron la Proposición 22, que restringía el matrimonio a un hombre y una mujer, pero la medida fue declarada inconstitucional por el Tribunal Supremo de California ocho años después.El estado comenzó a otorgar licencias matrimoniales [a parejas del mismo sexo] el 16 de junio de 2008, pero suspendió esta práctica el 5 de noviembre del mismo año al aprobarse la Proposición 8. En el ínterin, alrededor de 18.000 parejas del mismo sexo se casaron y siguen estando legalmente casadas.En agosto de 2010 el juez federal Vaughn Walker declaró inconstitucional la prohibición del matrimonio homosexual, pero los críticos [de ese dictamen] han dicho que él [el juez] debía haber dado a conocer que era homosexual y que había sostenido una relación de pareja con otro hombre durante mucho tiempo antes de la emisión de su dictamen. Los partidarios de la Proposición 8 dicen que él debía haber sido descalificado para el caso, pero el juez James Ware, quien sustituyó al ahora jubilado Walker como magistrado principal [del Tribunal Supremo de California] dijo que éste no tenía ninguna obligación de revelar detalles de su vida privada, y no encontró ninguna evidencia de que él hubiera obrado con prejuicios.—La Rda.

They go to theme parks, the beach, and other locations. They fill hotels all around Southern California and not just in Pasadena,” she said.Derderian described Pasadena as a national destination during the holidays.“Between family vacations, holiday shopping and parade/game attendees, there is significant revenue generated for the hospitality, restaurant, entertainment and sports venues,” she said.The parade was canceled in July after months of speculation. The decision to move the game to Texas came in the final days of December after it was determined fans and players’ families could not attend, in accordance with Gov. Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order.The city will receive $2 million from the Tournament of Roses, which will be paid in three installments. The final payment won’t be made until 2023.Little said that the right decision was to cancel the game.“Not hosting the parade was the right thing to do to safeguard people’s health,” Little said. “The game could easily and safely have been played here, but the governor chose to send it to Texas. Even if it were here, the economic impact would have been minimal as the number of fans allowed would have been a fraction of normal. It would have helped some of the local hotels and maybe restaurants, but retailers would not have felt much of a bump, if any.”According to former restaurant owner Robin Salzer, his business, Robin’s Woodfire BBQ, would typically see an additional 25% in profit on the days leading up to the game.“It was a wonderful infusion,” Salzer said. “We weren’t even in Old Pasadena. We were over on the east side in Siberia and we still saw an infusion of cash. It was a nice way to end the year and a great kickoff to the new year.”Salzer said that this year would have been beneficial for local restaurants because the two teams playing in the game, Alabama and Notre Dame, would have drawn a lot of fans into Pasadena.Profits from that game would have risen to more than if UCLA or USC had played in the Rose Bowl. That’s because most fans of those two teams would have driven to the city on game day, and many would have left to beat the traffic before the game ended.The absence of the two events also deeply impacted a much-needed revenue stream from the city’s Total Occupancy Tax, or TOT, which is paid by people who stay at local hotels.The Pasadena Center Operating Co., which governs the city’s currently closed Convention Center, will not begin to recoup TOT revenue lost to the coronavirus pandemic until fiscal year 2024.

Last week, the GHCAA had held a Referendum for ascertaining whether the Members of the Bar wished for physical functioning of the court or virtual functioning of the court. In this referendum 800 members participated and almost 64% of the Members of the Bar expressed their desire that the court should function physically, while 36% expressed their desire for the virtual functioning of the court. Accordingly, the Association had requested the Chief Justice to re-open courts for physical hearings, while also citing severe hardships being faced by the lawyers. As revealed by Oza’s letter of resignation, when the office bearers of the Association were called by the Bench for a discussion regarding feasibility of resuming physical appearances, General Secretary Prithviraj Jadeja acted against the mandate of the Bar. Oza stated that had it not been for the General Secretary, who opposed the proposal to re-open courts “tooth and nail”, he would have convinced the Chief Justice and Justices RM Chhaya and JB Pardiwala otherwise. Taking exception to this conduct of the General Secretary the letter states, “Until the Referendum was held, every elected member had an absolute right to put forward his/her views but once the Referendum is held and the result is out, still to represent their own views, is unpardonable and betrayal of faith of electorate in the elected person. In my opinion, therefore, none of us have any right to open our mouth taking a contrary stand than the one expressed by the majority. This is a cardinal principle of democracy.” He pointed out that both the Vice President and the Joint Secretary of the Association also opposed the matter of entry of advocates to attend their chambers, “notwithstanding that there is a loud demand from the advocates that at least advocates may be permitted to operate through their chamber.” Through his letter, Oza has also called out underlying “favouritism and nepotism” in the matter of circulation of matters. He highlighted that while some Advocates were struggling to get their matter listed since over a month, there were few others whose matters were being heard in a jiffy. “What shocked my conscience is the information supplied by Mr. Dipen Dave, former Chairman of Bar Council of Gujarat. He drew my attention to 50 matters of 10 advocates whose matters were circulated in two days time. I have got it cross checked and verified and there was 100% truth in Mr. Dave’s information.” In these circumstances, Oza has tendered his resignation and he seeks a fresh mandate on the issue as to “whether the court should function physical or virtual’. “I have decided to resign from the post of President, which I hereby do. I will seek a fresh mandate only on one issue, ‘as to whether the court should function physical or virtual’. I will never betray the faith and confidence of my electorate, when 64% members of the bar want physical functioning of the court,” the letter states. In this context he has requested the Managing Committee of the Association to hold the election within two weeks. “I have resigned on one issue and I am seeking a fresh mandate of the Bar, my request to the Managing Committee is to hold the election in two weeks time before the burning issue gets over. The voters list is ready. You can call for the nominations by way of e-mail and send link to every voter to vote according to their conscience by way of E-mail as per the last voter list. Otherwise, the whole purpose would be frustrated. Any way, it is only a suggestion, it is for the acting President and the Managing Committee to decide,” the letter read. He has further stated that in case he is re-elected, the office bearers who opposed the mandate of the Bar should ideally resign. “If my message in the Managing Committee group is read in letter and spirit, it would mean that if I get elected, then both, i.e. the Vice President and the Joint Secretary will have to resign because after the mandate of the Bar, they have continued with their contrary stand,” he said. Oza also sympathized with the hundreds of lawyers who had ventilated their grievances before him and expressed his regret for having “failed to wipe out their miseries.” Click Here To Download Letter Read Letter Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
