ASG Anil Singh appearing for the Government told a bench of CJ Dipankar Dutta and Justice GS Kulkarni that the Petitioners may make a representation before the Press Council of India, in case they aggrieved by the reports published by print media or the News Broadcasters Association (NBA), in case they aggrieved by reporting of electronic media. The submission was made in a PIL filed by Nilesh Navlakha (filmmaker/producer), Mahibub D. Shaikh (editor of a regional newspaper) and retired civil servant Subhash Chander Chaba, through Advocates Rajesh Inamdar and Shashwat Anand seeking directions for fair reporting by the media of the Sushant Singh Rajput case. Senior Advocate Devadatt Kamat appeared for Navlakha. They sought a direction to the Centre to enforce its program code against the TV channels to stop the “media trial” in the case. During the course of hearing, the Bench expressed surprise that there was no statutory body to govern the electronic media. The Court was informed that though the Press Council of India is a statutory body under the Press Council Act, 1978, the NBA was a “self-regulatory” representative body of the news and current affairs channels. Further, the electronic media is governed by the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995 and Cable Television Network Rules, 1994 framed thereunder. All programmes telecast on such TV channels are required to adhere to the Programme Codes prescribed under the Rules. The Petitioners submitted that many news channels that were a part of the NBA had been in violation of the Code of Ethics formulated by the body as part of the self-regulatory mechanism. The Government informed the Court that a representation in this regard could be made to the News Broadcasting standards Authority (NBSA), which is set up by the NBA to consider complaints against or in respect of broadcasters. At this juncture, Advocate Nisha Bhambhani, appearing for NBSA, informed the Court that it is an independent body that investigates complaints made to it directly by the aggrieved viewers. On a query that the body may treat the present PILs as a representation, Bhambhani informed the Court that a separate complaint will have to be filed to the body. Senior Advocate Milind Sathe, appearing for the eight ex-IPC officers who sought restraint on media from vilifying Mumbai Police, also made an objection to this proposition. He submitted that NBSA should be allowed to look into the matter at its level but the present PILs should be disposed of by the Court only as the NBSA is not state, and cannot be held accountable. Their decision would not be amenable to jurisdiction under Article 32 of the Constitution.  The Court took the Government’s affidavit on record and adjourned the matter with hope that the media houses will uphold the spirit of its order dated September 3, whereby they were asked to carry on responsible reporting of the matter and desist from conducting media trial. Bombay HC Says It Expects Media To Show Restraint In Reporting & Not To Hamper Investigation In Sushant Singh Rajput Case In the meanwhile, liberty is granted to NBSA to take action on complaints registered with it.Liberty was also granted to the Petitioners in Nilesh Navlakha’s PIL to file an additional affidavit, indicating instances of biased reporting after passing of the order dated September 3. An impleadment application was also moved by the Petitioners to add actress Rhea Chakraborty, who is presently in Judicial Custody. The same was declined by the Court stating that is sees no reason to implead her.The Petitioners had also sought to implead Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), as they are also investigating the actress for money laundering and drug abuse respectively. Further, they sought to add media platforms— ABP News, INDIA TV and News Nation, for biased reporting and allegedly running the #arrestrhea campaign on Twitter. The Court has permitted to implead these parties along with other concerned media channels.   During previous hearing, held on September 3, the High Court said it urges and expects the media to show restraint while reporting the developments in the case. The bench also said that the media should not report in a manner which hampers the ongoing investigation in the matter. Bombay HC Says It Expects Media To Show Restraint In Reporting & Not To Hamper Investigation In Sushant Singh Rajput Case It had decided to consider the further reliefs sought by the petitioners after hearing the CBI, which is handling the investigation in the case. In the PIL filed by ex-IPS officers seeking to restrain media from publishing any content that may jeopardize the reputation of Mumbai police, Senior Advocate Milind Sathe had submitted that they were not concerned with the accused or the victim; but they were aggrieved by vilification of Mumbai Police. Referring to the order passed by the Supreme Court on August 19 to hand over the investigation to the CBI, Sathe submitted that the top court had not found any fault with the procedure adopted by the Mumbai police, and that the CBI probe was ordered in the peculiar circumstances of the case where the states of Bihar and Maharasthra were making allegations against each other.

International Development

first_imgWhat is the best way to help people in developing countries build food security? That’s the question at the center of University of Georgia agricultural economist Nick Magnan’s research.Magnan, who joined the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics in 2012, was recently tapped by Heifer International to measure the effectiveness of the group’s livestock-transfer outreach strategy. Heifer International is a non-profit that provides livestock to families in developing nations.Magnan and his collaborators approached Heifer International after National Public Radio’s Planet Money produced a podcast comparing livestock and cash transfer programs in developing countries. The story criticized Heifer International for not having a system in place to measure its impact.Magnan started the study to look at how each piece of Heifer’s program — livestock, technical animal husbandry training and community savings clubs — impacts the lives of participating farmers in Nepal.He also works with the UGA-based USDA Feed the Future Peanut Mycotoxin and Improvement Lab (PMIL). There he researches the barriers that keep farmers from lowering the amount of carcinogenic aflatoxin in their peanut and corn crops. Aflatoxin is a carcinogenic toxin produced by mold.Finding out why some agricultural outreach programs work and why others don’t is a critical part of helping communities become more food secure, he said. Figuring out which strategies work and which don’t not only helps broaden the understanding of developing economies, but also helps leaders craft more-effective farmer education and outreach programs.“I want to explore the reasons why farmers don’t do the things that economists and agronomists think they should be doing,” Magnan said. “A lot of those constraints come from lack of market access, a lack of information or that their planting systems are very complex.”As part of his PMIL assignment, he is researching how farmers in Ghana can reduce the amount aflatoxin in their groundnuts and how they can be encouraged to follow the steps required to do so.In 2014, Magnan’s team found that, in Ghana, peanuts that were dried on tarps instead of on the ground had significantly less aflatoxin. They are testing to see if offering a premium price for low-aflatoxin peanuts encourages farmers to dry their crops on tarps.“We’ve given farmers tarps, or the opportunity to buy tarps at a low cost,” he said. “Now we want to see if a market incentive can get them to use them for drying peanuts, rather than for some other purpose.”In addition to his research, Magnan teaches an undergraduate and a graduate course in development economics at UGA. He focusses less on the history of international development and more on the different ways people are working to build food-security today. He shares contemporary case studies and policy issues with all of his students.“By the end, people who don’t know they care about (international) development learn that they do care about (international) development,” he said.Magnan earned a doctorate in agricultural and resource economics from the University of California at Davis in 2010. Before coming to UGA, he worked as a research fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute, an international agricultural research center that focuses on food security in developing countries, and still collaborates with researchers from the institute.“Dr. Magnan’s positive impact on the internationalization of UGA in his first three years here has been nothing short of impressive,” said Amrit Bart, director of the CAES Office of Global Programs. “His international research and teaching programs are a tremendous asset to CAES as we continue to build our international portfolio.”To learn more about Magnan visit sites.google.com/site/nickmagnan.

Tevez proud to be Juve’s number 10

first_img The Argentina striker completed a move to the Serie A champions on Wednesday night following four seasons with Manchester City, and even before completing his medical in Turin he was pictured on the balcony of Juve’s headquarters holding a number 10 jersey aloft. The 29-year-old told juventus.com: “I’m absolutely aware of the great effort Juventus Football Club has made to bring me here. I feel the responsibility of wearing this number and I am aware of the great responsibility of representing Juventus and playing for the club so this number is certainly a great challenge.” Carlos Tevez spoke of his pride after being handed the iconic number 10 shirt upon signing a three-year contract with Juventus. Press Associationcenter_img The shirt – made famous by Michel Platini, Liam Brady and Roberto Baggio – has been unclaimed since veteran striker and former Bianconeri captain Alessandro Del Piero left Turin for Sydney FC last summer. Tevez added: “Top players have worn it before and I was number 10 with Boca (Juniors) before, and (Diego) Maradona played in it too, so the great responsibility is now that I’m going to play in this great club so certainly the greatest challenge is to do my best “Obviously I didn’t want to forget Del Piero who was the last player to wear number 10. He is a person and player that I greatly respect and who certainly represents an emblem and symbol of esteem. “It is a great pleasure and honour to wear this jersey with his number.” Tevez’s transfer fee has not been disclosed but it is reported Juve have paid City an initial £10million, rising to £12million with add-ons. The former West Ham and Manchester United man has taken a brief break from his summer holiday in Argentina to join Juve and upon his arrival at Milan’s Malpensa airport on Wednesday afternoon he was mobbed by around 200 Bianconeri fans. last_img read more
