Our views as the largest shareholder remain valid.”Michael Grade declined to comment when contacted by City A.M. yesterday but chief executive Ivan Dunleavy defended the board’s performance.He said: “We’re pleased with a resilient performance. We’re sure all of our shareholders are pleased that our revenue is expected to rise.“We’re enthusiastic about the business. With Michael Grade as chairman we are running the business for shareholders.

News UpdatesCalcutta HC Prohibits Hunting, Selling, Buying Or Exchanging Of Birds Either As Part Of Sale Of Domestic Animals Or Otherwise Sparsh Upadhyay27 March 2021 6:44 AMShare This – xImage Courtesy: Parveen KaswanIn a significant move, the Calcutta High Court on Friday (26th March) prohibited the hunting, selling, buying or exchanging of birds either as part of sale of domestic animals or otherwise. The Bench of Chief Justice Thottathil B. Radhakrishnan and Justice Arijit Banerjee ordered thus in the suo moto matter related to the illegal smuggling and trading of endangered species of birds in the State. The Division Bench had taken up the matter on the basis of a newspaper report that ‘exposed the tip of an iceberg’ regarding the ‘cruel intrusion’ into the life birds. Significantly, the Court observed that all illegal activities in relation to birds and animals in whatever form and in connection with whatever melas and other festivals have to be completely stopped by the State, in the exercise of its police power, if needed. Perusing the report filed by the Conservator of Forests, Wildlife and Chief Wildlife Warden, West Bengal, the Court appreciated the efforts made by the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests. However, the Court added that there are critical areas which are to be treated as fragile in terms of management of wildlife. Further, to control wildlife crime especially illegal trade and smuggling, the Court directed the Chief Secretary of the Government of West Bengal and the Secretary of the Home Department, Government of West Bengal to jointly consider the suggestions made by Principal Chief Conservator of Forests. Also, they have been directed to place the views of the Government from the angle of governance in an effort to effectuate the need to insulate and secure the wildlife and forest wealth. The Court also issued the following directions: – Transport and smuggling of live birds through various courier services or packages or any other mode through inland transport or through airports in any manner shall be prevented.The State Police and Police Authorities, Customs Authorities and security personnel in charge of the airports as well as police officials and other officials in control of the inland transport system shall ensure this. The officers of the Motor Vehicles Department, the officers of the Police Department and officers of the other concerned departments are directed to give effect to the prohibition.Any violation of this prohibitory order will be immediately taken cognizance of by the jurisdictional officers as enjoined by the laws. The Airport Authorities, the Customs Authorities and the Authorities in control of the inter-state boundaries, exit points and entry points, are directed to ensure that transportation of live birds and other small and big animals which are part of wildlife, are intercepted and offenders are brought to the book. Significantly, the restrictions imposed through the order have been directed to be complied throughout the State of West Bengal and the order shall by itself be treated as a prohibition with public notice. The Court sternly remarked, “Non-implementation of this order in its letter and spirit will be looked upon as dereliction of duty and violation of this order on the part of the officers in the administration whose obligation it is to enforce this order.” The prohibitory order has been directed to be published in the website of the State Government and the website of the High Court and such other websites or modes of publication as the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests may deem fit and appropriate The matter has been posted for further hearing on 14th May 2021.Case Title: In re Smuggling and illegal trading of endangered species of birds Click Here To Download Order Read OrderTagsChief Justice Thottathil B.

Previous Article Next Article A member of the Scottish Parliament is calling for a health and safety working party to be set up in the wake of research showing staff are twice as likely to be killed at work in Scotland than they are in England.MSP Cathy Jamieson said the Scottish Parliament should not ignore health and safety issues just because it does not have legislative powers.Jamieson said, “Some people think the Parliament should only discuss matters over which it has legislative competence. But what we can do is concentrate on health and safety promotion.”Jamieson’s Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley constituency covers the former Ayrshire coalfield. Mining has now been replaced as the main source of employment in the area by call centres, electronics companies, and opencast mining.Research published last year by academics at two Scottish universities showed employees in Scotland are twice as likely to die at work than those in England.The Scottish Safety Anomaly, written by Dr Charles Woolfson and Professor Mathias Beck, also found staff in Scotland are 26 per cent more likely to experience serious injury in the workplace. A motion proposed by Jamieson aimed at forming a working party – a report recommendation – failed earlier this year.She said, “I am keeping it on the boil…What I don’t want to see is claims in 10 to 15 years from people who have been injured in the new industries because we have failed to recognise the dangers.” Related posts:No related photos.

The pattern and characteristics of diving of two male blue‐eyed shags Phalacrocorax atriceps were studied, using continuous‐recording time‐depth recorders, for a total of 15 consecutive days during which the depth, duration, bottom time, ascent and descent rates and surface intervals of 674 dives were recorded. Deep dives (> 35 m, averages80–90 m, max. 116 m) were twice as common (64% versus 34%) as shallow dives (< 21 m and 90% < 10 m). Deep dives were long (averages 2.7‐4.1 min, max. 5.2 min) with half the time spent near maximum depth and fast travel speeds (averages 1.0‐2.4 m s−1). Shallow dives were short (average 0.5 min, max. 1.3 min), without bottom time and with slow travel speeds (0.1–0.6 m s−1). The time spent at depth and the diet (mainly benthic fish and octopus) is consistent with benthic foraging; the function of shallow dives is uncertain. Male shags forage mainly in the afternoon in3–5 distinct bouts of diving. Within bouts (and shorter homogeneous sequences of diving) surface intervals are consistently2–3 times the preceding dive duration; in other shags the reverse is the case. Blue‐eyed shag diving depth, duration and pattern is extreme amongst shags; and the relationship between dives and surface intervals suggests that they may regularly exceed their aerobic dive limit.
Discussions are also continuing with the Falkland Islands Government around a possible extension to licences PL004 and PL032 Rockhopper Exploration provides Sea Lion farm-in update. (Credit: C Morrison from Pixabay) Rockhopper Exploration plc is pleased to provide the following update in relation to the previously announced farm-in to the Sea Lion project by Navitas Petroleum LP (“Navitas”).Following the announcement of the proposed merger of Premier Oil plc (“Premier”) and Chrysaor Holdings Limited, Navitas has confirmed that it remains committed to the proposed farm-in. In order to enable the merger to complete and the new management of the combined entity to make a firm decision on the Sea Lion project, Rockhopper, Premier and Navitas have agreed to extend the exclusivity period for the farm-in to the earlier of (i) 30 September 2021; (ii) the execution of definitive transaction documents, or (iii) a decision by Navitas not to proceed with the farm-in. During this period, Rockhopper’s share of Sea Lion project costs will continue to be borne by Premier under the same terms as previously announced.Discussions are also continuing with the Falkland Islands Government around a possible extension to licences PL004 and PL032 which currently expire in May 2021.Samuel Moody, Chief Executive Officer, commented:“We will work closely with all stakeholders over the coming months to maximise the chance of securing the farm out and project sanction of Sea Lion. We believe that the opportunity to invest in a 500 million barrel fully appraised and engineered project with material additional upside at this point in the cycle presents a compelling opportunity, and one which would lead us towards unlocking the value within the project long-awaited by all stakeholders.” Source: Company Press Release
