The pandemic has brought the world economy down, in a deep financial crisis, which was leading the world wide working systems, services, professions and business. The legal profession is one of the significant pillars of the whole society and it is a matter of big sorrow that the nationwide lockdown has brought to the fore the great disparity and problems in the field of legal profession and clearly the most affected are the legal professionals who are practicing as independent Advocates. The vast majority of the advocates are in the lower courts which functions on a case to case basis for their regular income and as per the present scenario of epidemic and lockdown, their economic situation has become vulnerable and it is uncertain as to when things will get better.. The advocates who practice outside their home town are in a permeable situation. High Courts across India, which for the most part have only one bench functioning, are barely taking few cases, meaning that most of the massive numbers of pending matters have to wait for the lockdown to end. In the lower courts, lawyers said that most civil courts are not hearing matters and no fresh filling is permitted except urgent matters. In criminal courts, most of the states have given interim bail to under trial prisoners. This means those who are accused and are awaiting trial have, unless their alleged crimes are heinous, been given with automatic bail. This is relevant because in the normal course of working, bail matters are the most important for an accused as well as for a lawyer from his professional point, especially working in Sessions Courts as well as High Courts. SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS FACED BY THE LEGAL PROFESIONALS DUE TO THE PANDEMIC AND NATION WIDE LOCKDOWN NO FINANCIAL AID OR ANY SPECIAL GRANT FROM GOVERNMENT TO ADVOCATES In the ongoing scenario of COVID 19 pandemic and nationwide lockdown, the State as well as the Central Government has maintained silence and has intentionally turned a blind eye to the ongoing problems. Since the livelihood of the entire fraternity of advocates, many Bar Associations have taken initiative to give financial aid to their Bar members. Bombay Bar Association (BBA) has extended a helping hand to the advocates facing financial difficulties due to lockdown. The Bombay Bar Association (BBA) understands that it’s time to help your working fraternity by taking immediate action without waiting for the government to announce reliefs or welfare schemes for advocates. The present situation and financial conditions of many advocates are vulnerable, the Bombay Bar Association (BBA) offered financial assistance to any advocate who is its member or any advocate who has applied for membership. It has allowed requests for financial aid even from those advocates who are not its members. However, priority will be given to members of the Association. Supreme Court Bar Association and Supreme Court Advocates-On-Record Association also decided to give financial aid to the Advocates who are in dire need during the lockdown. But the fundamental question remains: is this sufficient to support the large class of lawyers in the country who are really suffering? There are more than 2 million practicing advocates and 95% of them are suffering so how far can the associations extend help to them. LOCK DOWN’S EFFECT ON CLERK AND OTHER STAFF WORKING UNDER ADVOCATES AND ATTORNEYS The office of almost every advocate runs on the working of associate juniors , registered clerks and the other staff who are dependent on the pay cheque from the advocate. The onus of payment of salary to the staff in the time of the non-functioning of courts is a huge burden on advocates. Keeping an eye on the situation of other working staff of an advocate, The Madras High Court directed the State Government and the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry to respond on whether any financial aid can be given to advocates and registered advocate’s clerks during the national lockdown. One way or the other, the working of the court has to be started as early as possible, keeping every precautionary direction issued by the Health Ministry. The Bar Associations could not regularly provide financial assistance to the working staff of an advocate and especially to the advocates who practice in the lower courts. The nonfunctioning of courts is severely damaging the legal professionals and the impact caused due to this will continue for the next two year. PROBELMS OF ELECTRICITY BILLS AND OFFICE RENT AND MAINTAINANCE CHARGES OF WORKING PREMISES The number of advocates who work in rented offices are very high and the effect of the nationwide lockdown is that they are burdened with the onus of monthly rent , electricity bills as well as other maintenance charges which are incurred as it is regardless of the lockdown and it has to be paid from the pocket of advocate even when n these months of lockdown due to no income was generated. BURDEN OF PAYING SALARIES TO THE OTHER WORKING STAFFS, JUNIOR ASSOCIATES, CLERKS AND PARA LEGAL RESEARCHERS. As discussed in the earlier paragraphs regarding the working staff and paralegal researcher, their work is interrelated to the working of advocates and courts but due to non functioning of courts they are stuck in the middle of nowhere. Irrespective of the non-working of Courts ,the advocates have to take the responsibility of paying remuneration to their working staff like junior associates who are completely dependent on their seniors. On other hand the advocates who are beginners and practicing independently are struggling for their bread and butter. Advocates are severely hit by this lockdown and are facing financial crunch and if the lockdown further extends, then this poses a serious threat to life. ONLINE HEARING OF CASES The working of Courts and advocates is of such pragmatic nature that the idea of work from home and online hearing of cases doesn’t fit well with the working of the court. It can be used for a few urgent matters but it is impractical to make it a normal course of routine. It is also to be taken into consideration that there are very few advocates who understand the procedure of electronic media but majority of advocates are not familiar with the online filing and online hearing of cases which renders it almost possible for them to practice. It is to be noted that the establishment cost of a proper internet connection with a good device also will cost a lot and many people will not be in a position to afford it. If such conditions persist the noble legal profession and administration of justice will be under the clutches of a group of elite and it will be a class based administration of justice, and for poor people justice will become a distant dream. Advocates, in addition to being legal professionals, also officers of the courts who play a vital role in the administration of justice. Accordingly, the principles, bye laws and rules that govern their professional conduct arise out of the duty that they owe to the court, the client, their opponents and to the other advocates as well. The Profession itself requires the safeguarding of high moral standards. As an officer of the Court, the duty of a lawyer is towards the Court, the standards of his profession and to the public. Since the main job of a lawyer is to assist the Court in dispensing justice, the members of the Bar cannot behave with doubtful scruples or strive to thrive on litigation. It is a matter of great sorrow that the officer of court, an advocate has been completely ignored by the government as no vital steps have been taken to financially aid advocates, no announcement has been made till date for the welfare of the court officers. It has been more than two months wherein the courts of important cities are non-functioning and the effect is that the officers of Court are in deep financial crisis. The entire country is facing a difficult situation. Advocates are raising their voice mentioning the provisions of the Advocates Act and reminding that the BCI is responsible for safeguarding the rights, privileges and interests of advocates. If the advocates interests are not paid heed to, then the justice delivery system fails. The best example is the suo motu case No. 6/2020, registered by the Supreme Court with regard to the issues of migrant laborers. Initially a PIL for the same was filed and was dismissed due to lack of proper persuasion or understanding of ground reality, and then later the Court itself took cognisance suo motu. If the lives and livelihood of the legal professionals who are practicing in Courts as an independent advocate has been jeopardized in the struggle for bread and butter, how does society expect justice from any system? In this pandemic COVID19 there must be a unique approach by the appropriate government on and above the traditional approach to reduce the larger human suffering and hardship.

Manco and Manco’s Pizza Boardwalk Stores Dark Friday Night Following Sentencing of Owners

first_imgBy Tim KellyBoardwalk strollers seeking a slice of Manco and Manco pizza last night were instead greeted with a dark store and a curious handwritten sign.A small paper sign was displayed next to a printed one listing the winter hours of the 12th St. store, normally 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays.Someone had written “We will reopen at 5 p.m. Fri Feb 24” in black ink on the paper sign. But at approximately 7:15 p.m. the lights inside the iconic Boardwalk store were turned off and the door was locked. This in the wake of the sentencing of owners Charles “Chuck” Bangle and his wife Mary earlier in the day on their conviction for tax evasion, structuring cash payments to avoid reporting requirements and lying to Internal Revenue agents.A call placed to the Ocean City store’s listed phone number was answered by a cheerful female voice. “You’ve reached Somers Point,” the woman said in reference to the Manco and Manco’s location in the ShopRite shopping center at Route 9 and Ocean Heights Avenue.When asked if the chain’s Ocean City locations would be open for business Friday, she said “No, not tonight.”When OCNJDaily’s photographer was on the scene Friday, a customer, who asked to remain anonymous, expressed disappointment the store was closed, and offered support for the Bangles.“We are all capable of giving-in to temptation,” the man said. “We are a Christian community. Chuck has done a lot of good in town.  When his doors open again, I will be back with my family and friends.”A press release issued earlier in the day by the Camden office of U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman announced that Chuck Bangle, 57, a Somers Point resident, was sentenced to 15 months in prison. Bangle had previously pled guilty to a count on an indictment charging him with evading taxes on his 2010 personal tax returns, the release stated, as well as a count charging him with “structuring financial transactions in 2011 to avoid reporting requirements.”In addition to the prison term, Kugler sentenced Bangle to three years of supervised release, ordered him to pay restitution of $248,560 and fined him $5,000.Mary Bangle, 56, also of Somers Point was given three years of probation and fined $3,000, the release said. She previously pleaded guilty to a count on the same indictment, which charged her with knowingly making false statements.The sentences were handed down by U.S. District Judge Robert B. Kugler Friday at the federal court in Camden. More than 100 family and friends of the Bangles attended the sentencing hearing to show their support for the couple.Bangle is to begin serving his sentence in September.  It was unknown in which federal prison Bangle would be confined.Thus ends a years-long process of investigating the cash business, the Bangles’ pleas and a four-times delayed sentencing. Bangle and his wife entered their guilty pleas in 2015.According to the indictment, Chuck Bangle reported $127,995 on his 2010 tax return, omitting $263,113 in income and avoided $91,577 in taxes. He also admitted to making cash deposits to a TD Bank account in amounts of less than $10,000 so that the bank would not be required to file a currency transaction report with the U.S. Treasury Department, according to published reports.None of this affected the popularity of the brand, which for decades had operated as Mack and Mancos, a name many longtime customers still refer to when discussing their favorite Jersey Shore pizza. In 2011 the name was changed following a buyout of the Mack family, former partners in the business.“Nothing has changed except the sign,” Chuck Bangle told the Press of Atlantic City at the time. “Same legendary pizza, same legendary service.”The long lines at 12th Street, customary in the summer months, were seen again last weekend at the beginning of the recent stretch of unseasonably warm weather. Tourists and locals waited patiently for their taste of Manco and Manco’s signature thin homemade crust and distinctive sauce.The chain includes two other Ocean City boardwalk locations and the Somers Point store.The Bangles are currently redeveloping the former Strand movie theatre into a Manco and Manco’s Pizza “Super store” at 9th and the Boardwalk.Work on converting the building continued unabated on Friday.last_img read more

Philippine economy shrinks first time in two decades

first_imgThe January eruption of the Taal volcano, which forced the temporary closure of Manila’s main international airport, also took a toll. Chua said there would be more pain and the economy could further shrink in the second quarter.”The first quarter, I think, is still respectable given the very difficult environment that we are in. The second quarter might be worse,” he said.Growth in consumer spending, which is the Philippines’ key economic driver, slowed to just 0.2 percent during the period, hit by the closure of malls and shopping centres in areas under lockdown.  Many areas in the Philippines have been under quarantine since mid-March, and will remain so until at least mid-May, to contain the spread of the virus, including Manila and surrounding areas where most economic activity takes place.  “The current lockdown… will undoubtedly drag GDP deep into contraction as we see how destructive the enhanced community quarantine can be for the consumption-driven economy,” ING senior economist Nicholas Mapa said. But Chua added that the country could bounce back in the second half of the year as it gradually reopens businesses, adding: “With the progress that we are seeing on the health side, there is a very strong chance that we will have a good recovery.” The Philippines has detected more than 10,000 coronavirus cases and more than 600 people have died. Topics : The Philippine economy contracted for the first time in more than two decades during the first quarter, but officials warned Thursday that the worst was likely yet to come as the nation reels from the coronavirus pandemic. Gross domestic product shrank 0.2 percent in January-March, its worst performance since 1998 during the Asian financial crisis as the Philippines joins a long line of countries to report devastating figures as a result of widespread lockdowns that have shut down economies.”Containing the spread of the virus and saving hundreds of thousands of lives, though the imposition of the (quarantine) has come at great cost to the Philippine economy,” Economic Planning Acting Secretary Karl Chua said. last_img read more

BPW Dominica: Be Each Other’s Keepers in 2020

first_imgPresident of Business and Professional Women, Rhoda St,JohnAs we come to the end of yet another year, it gives us the opportunity to reflect on the year past and the year to come. We reminisce on  where  we  came  from,  what  we  have  done, where we are going and  what we have learnt as we  put a plan of action in place to achieve these goals .As women we are the very backbones of society, we are often the decision- makers, bread-winners, mothers, housekeepers, teachers, business owners, etc.Women are the most fundamental instrument in any civilized society, a symbol of growth and future. Embracing our roles within our various communities, promotes the development of every sector that make up our societies,  whether religious, financial, personal, or political, women play a major role.As an organization, we advocate for women, youth and  children regardless of their age, therefore; I encourage all of us, as 2019 is coming to a close; to focus not on the past months but on the months ahead and how we as women and men alike can shape a positive and brighter future for ourselves and our communities.Some may ask, do we really have a voice, and what can we do with that voice  to positively impact our societies? Who are our target s?  What can be heard from our voices? Is it noise, are sounding symbol or is it building tools to uplift others and place them at positions of ​influence , where  they  too  can  make  a  difference,  through  their  experiences,  character, attitude and actions ?BPW Dominica  chapter operates on a small island that is very   much driven by politics and religion.  However, this does not stop us from reaching milestones such as Gender Equality.We currently have eight women who will serve in parliament out of an eighteen – member cabinet of Ministers. Dominica has positioned itself to champion the cause and be one of the Caribbean islands that have broken the gender equality barrier and place women in the same bracket as men. This is also very apparent within our field of works where we have a number of women holding CEO positions at the top level cooperative s, businesses and firms.Dominica deserves a ‘hats off’ and accolades for allowing their women equal opportunity, equal pay and equal rights as men to build and develop.Dominica  has  come a long  way  from  the  ravages  of  Hurricane  Maria,  we  have  shown resilience,  stamina,  and  the  zeal  to  press  forward and  we  have  managed  to  bounce back quickly and persist to rebuild the country, thus continuing and improving its habitability.As we enter 2020, we will continue to administer our mandate towards “Empowering Women to Realize the Sustainable Development Goals”. How will we contribute to this calling? We will achieve this goal by creating leaders out of our women, reaching them at their levels and working with them to understand and bring forth the many hidden gifts and abilities that they possess.We shall continue to drive our women to accept themselves as precious treasures, priceless assets , strong willed , encouraging them to take a stand for what is right.  In 2020, much like  in 2019 , we  as  an  organization  will  continue  to  stand  up  against  violence  against women and children, violence of all forms, especially the trend of verbal abuse, as we have learnt that there is no truth to the saying “stick and stones may break my bones but words can do me no harm”. We have learnt that words do have power and can be the most violent form of abuse and the most difficult to cure.     So, in 2020 we as BPW Dominica say, “NO to violence of any kind against our women and children”.As we stand in solidarity with our sisters across the region, it is our goal  to have the laws across  the  Caribbean  islands  amended, that  verbal  abuse  which  includes  slandering  of others character, be seen as a chargeable offence and punishable by law.  The rights and protection of our children both male and female is an alarming concern and more measures will be taken to fight on behalf of our children. We say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH we are STANDING UP and SPEAKING OUT.So let’s break the silence, speak up for what is right, speak up for those who are too afraid to speak out for themselves. It is time that we learn to be each other’s’ keeper.  Blessed 2020 to all and let’s rally together as one family and stamp out all forms of violence within our region.Cheers!! Here’s to a successful year ahead. Happy New Year!

Firefox Creates a Smarter Browser Bar

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A new add-on to Firefox combines resources location and category search to the toolbar while protecting your browsing activity.AwesomeBar HD is a spin-off from the Home Dash project designed by Mozilla developer Edward Lee to improve browsing and content discovery without the use of a toolbar. AwesomeBar is the opposite of Home Dash: instead of getting rid of the toolbar, it makes the address bar much more intuitive.The AwesomeBar makes searching from the toolbar more semantic by allowing the user to search the Web via categories. Search movies, sports or people through the most pertinent sites pertaining to the topic. Say you want to search maps. Hover your cursor over the maps tag in the tool bar and a pull-down menu with Google Maps, Bing Maps or MapQuest appears. The references tag will allow you to search Wikipedia, Answers.com or Dictionary.com and so forth.AwesomeBar taps into the specialized search offered by those sites and returns more granular results than if you were just trying a Google search from a generic toolbar.In terms of privacy, Firefox will not send input to a remote server. Here is the explanation in the introductory video:“Instead, when you browse to a previously visited page, Firefox will only look through its local history without any network activity. The results come back in an order that looks at both how frequently and how recently you’ve been to the pages in addition to some adaptive learning for a bit of awesome.”One problem that we noticed is that the address bar does not save the URL of the site you are on once you get there. Instead, there is a blank spot ready for the next query. For people who regularly copy and paste links from the address bar that becomes a problem. Lee is open to feedback and the tools are still in experimental mode. If you have suggestions, head on over to his page and let him know. If you want to see the code for the AwesomeBar, Lee has posted it on GitHub.
