But he said: “We are not worried about a double dip recession – we see continued growth – but there is still pressure on consumer demand.”He added he does not see the impending hike in the rate of VAT, from 17.5 per cent to 20 per cent in January, as a major problem.Wilkinson added: “We don’t think it will have an explicit impact on our business. Computers are part of everybody’s lives now. It isn’t something people will stop buying. People want to be up to date, with the latest technology.”He also called for the technology sector to engage with the government in its austerity drive, saying investment in the right technology can be the difference between spending pennies and spending pounds.Intel’s results raised hopes that the technology sector could end 2010 on a strong note. However, analysts warned not all chip makers would fare as well as Intel.Intel said that by early 2011 it should close its acquisitions of the wireless unit of German chipmaker Infineon for $1.4bn (£880m) and security software specialist McAfee for $7.7bn. Both deals are seen as stepping stones into the growing mobile market.

The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan has issued notice to the Union of India. Filed by Nida Rahman, the petition challenges sections 6 and 7 of the Special Marriage Act which lays down procedures to be followed to call public objections to inter-faith couples seeking registration of their marriage. Section 6 of the Special Marriage Act requires the ‘marriage officer’ to publish a notice seeking public objections at a conspicuous place outside his office, 30 days prior to the registration of marriage of inter-faith couples. Section 7 of the same Act reads as: ‘Any person may, before the expiration of thirty days from the date on which any such notice has been published under sub-section (2) of section 6, object to the marriage on the ground that it would contravene one or more of the conditions specified in section 4.’ The notice that the inter-faith couples have to send to the marriage officer for publication mentions their personal details – including their names, address, etc. The Petitioner, has therefore, argued that this mandatory requirement violates the fundamental Right to Privacy of the inter-faith couples as enshrined under Article 21 of the Constitution. Apart from violating their privacy, the Petitioner argues, this requirement also exposes inter-faith couples to immediate danger as most of them seek registration of their marriages against the wishes of their family members. It is further argued by the Petitioner that these sections of the Special Marriage Act also violate Article 14 of the Constitution as there are no similar provisions for the registration of marriages under the Hindu or Muslim personal laws. The Petitioner in this case was represented by Mr Utkarsh Singh. Next Storylast_img read more

Lightning strike kills two in Pennsylvania

first_imgamriphoto/iStock(MOUNT PLEASANT, Pa.) — Two people died Thursday after being struck by lightning at a park in Pennsylvania, authorities said. Brendan McGowan and Kaitlyn Rosensteel, both 18, were found dead below a large splintered tree next to a lake in Mammoth Park in Mount Pleasant Township around 4 p.m. local time, according to the Westmoreland County coroner’s office.Witnesses reported hearing a loud crack and seeing a large flash of light in the area where McGowan and Rosensteel were fishing at the time. The pair both suffered injuries consistent with being hit by lightning and were pronounced dead at the scene, according to the coroner’s office. The official cause and manner of death will be determined pending autopsies and toxicology results.The two deaths would bring the total number of lightning-related fatalities in the United States so far this year to four. Based on the past decade, an average of seven lightning deaths occur in the country by mid-June, according to John Jensenius, a meteorologist with the National Lightning Safety Council who retired from the National Weather Service earlier this year. The odds of being struck by lightning in your lifetime are 1 in 13,000, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Severe Storms Laboratory. Nine out of every 10 people in the United States who are struck survive, according to a 2016 study presented at the International Lightning Detection Conference and International Lightning Meteorology Conference. However, lightning strikes can leave a person with many long-term health problems, including muscle soreness, headaches, cognitive problems and nausea. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

In addition to lost revenue from the machines, the cost of repairing the damage can be extensive.    Break-Ins to Vending MachinesPlease report any suspicious behavior you have noticed or may become aware of in the future, including suspicious behavior, subjects and / or vehicles, or damage to machines consistent with the above break-insIf you witness a crime in progress or suspicious activity, please call 911.  However, if you have information you’d like to pass on, or have any questions, please contact the Evansville Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit at (812) 485-6135 or call the WeTip line at 1-800-78-CRIME.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Bye-Bye BP… Bring on the Green Space

first_imgBy Donald WittkowskiOne torn down. Two to go.The ghostly hulk of an abandoned gas station was demolished Thursday, a pivotal first step in Ocean City’s efforts to remove blight from its main gateway.The BP was one of three decrepit, former gas stations lining the Ninth Street entryway. Its demolition comes just three weeks after City Council approved a $475,000 bond ordinance to buy the site and transform it into open space.With the BP now gone, two old Exxon and Getty stations are the next targets for demolition.The Exxon site is expected to be redeveloped later this year into a multimillion-dollar office building for the Keller Williams real estate firm. The city is in talks to acquire the Getty property and turn it into open space.Meanwhile, the old BP station’s weather-beaten building was reduced to rubble by heavy construction machinery equipped with a giant claw. Also torn down was the overhead canopy covering the gas pumps.All that remain standing are four old pumps. As part of the property’s sale, the current owner, SAE New Jersey Realty Co. LLC of Pennsauken, will remove the old underground gasoline storage tanks before turning over control to the city.Frank Donato, the city’s chief financial officer, said the BP site will be landscaped to create more green space along the Ninth Street corridor, the main artery in and out of town. The land will also be used for parking for the surrounding residential neighborhood on Revere Place, as well as for people who bike, walk and jog across the Ninth Street causeway.The Exxon site at Ninth Street and Bay Avenue is one of the first things visitors see as they enter town. The BP and Getty stations confront people as they leave the island via the Ninth Street causeway. City officials have long been concerned about the impression the run-down properties have made on tourists.The bond ordinance to buy the BP property, approved by Council on May 12, set the city’s cleanup plan in motion. Donato said the city will probably take title to the site this month, after it is cleaned up and the bonds go to market to finance its purchase.Separately, the city is negotiating to buy the old Getty property from owner Trinetra Realty Holdings New Jersey Delaware LLC of Princeton. Donato said the owner of the Bud’s Marina property next to the BP and Getty stations has also expressed interest in selling, which would give the city an even larger footprint for open space along the Ninth Street corridor.The Abandoned Getty stations sits at the foot of the Ninth Street Bridge.last_img read more

Lettuce To Play Extended Set In Long Island Tonight After The Motet Cancels Due To Snow

first_imgThe funk all-stars of Lettuce and The Motet have recently been touring together, with The Motet joining Lettuce for a handful of dates across the U.S. in the last month and a half. These joint dates will come to close over the next few days, with both bands previously scheduled to perform in New York over the next three nights—tonight at The Paramount and two nights at The Capitol Theatre on Friday and Saturday. Unfortunately, for tonight’s show at The Paramount in Huntington, Long Island, The Motet has had to cancel last minute due to travel-related issues caused by the snowstorm sweeping up the East Coast—meaning that tonight’s show will feature an extended Lettuce show sans an opener.As issued in a press release from The Paramount regarding these last-minute lineup changes:The Paramount announces that tonight’s show with Lettuce will still go on. Unfortunately, due to travel related issues as a result of yesterday’s nor’easter, The Motet will not be performing. Funk band Lettuce is in the building now and will perform live in concert tonight at 9 pm. Doors open at 8 pm. For customers who are unable to attend the show tonight due to travel issues and/or lineup changes, refunds on tickets for tonight’s show are now available at the ticketholders’ point of purchase – Ticketmaster or The Paramount Box Office. For any questions or concerns, you can call the venue at (631) 673-7300 or visit paramountny.com.On Friday and Saturday night, both Lettuce and The Motet will hit The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, for a highly anticipated two-night run. As previously reported, Relix will be webcasting the entirety of Friday’s show for free, so fans who want to get a funk fix but can’t make it to the venue should tune in at 8 p.m. (EST).

A pathway to humble leadership: 3 simple steps

first_imgI have a long history with the Boy Scouts of America. I am an Eagle Scout and have held a lot of leadership positions in the organization, both on a local and national level. and I worked on summer camp staff for several years. My best friends in the world are those I made through my involvement with Scouting.The caption for the photo above is a quote from the founder of the Order of the Arrow, a service organization in the Scouts. The purpose and sole duty of “Arrowmen” is to serve others. It’s as simple as that. There are a variety of ways to serve, too many to discuss here. Suffice to say that every action, project, or work should be tied back to that very simple goal: to serve others.People lead organizations from all demographics, age groups, creed, race, and backgrounds. The vast majority of these leaders are good at their jobs. Some could use an ego adjustment. A few fall into the category of “servant-leaders.”The concept of “Servant-Leadership” is catching on. Organizations that use the philosophy often enjoy the best productivity, highest profits, and lowest turnover of employees. As a leader, who wouldn’t want those things? continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
