The Court said that the bar under Section 13 of Notaries Act is mandatory and if no such protection is granted to a notary it will be difficult for them to perform their acts as contemplated to be done as a notary.The lawyer had approached the High Court contending that the registration of the crime and taking cognisance by the Judicial First Class Magistrate against her  is hit by Section 13 of the Notaries Act, 1952. Section 13(1) of the Notaries Act, is a bar in taking cognisance of any offence committed by a Notary in the exercise or purported exercise of his functions under the Act except upon a complaint in writing made by an officer authorised by the Central Government or a State Government by a general or special order in that regard. The court observed:Whenever a question of official act of Notary comes for determination, it is the duty of the criminal court to find whether the allegations are directly concerned with his official duty or the performance which he has to do as indicated in Section 8 of the Act. The court has to apply its judicial mind and to see whether the subject matter of the complaint is the official act of a notary or is an act beyond his official performance. The unauthorised acts of a notary is also illustrated by stating commission of murder or assault of a person for causing hurt, grievous hurt etc. So if at all the allegations against the Notary is such unofficial acts or acts not connected with his/her official duties definitely the sanction under Section 13(1) need not be obtained.Taking note of the allegations levelled against the Notary, the court further observed that a Notary is not supposed to know each and every person before him for the purpose of notifying a document in his Notarial Register. It said:it is quite impossible for a Notary to know the genuineness of the document produced before him for attestation. The Notary is not supposed to know each and every person before him for the purpose of notifying a document in his Notarial Register. He is generally introduced to parties by persons who happen to be persons of his acquaintance. If such protection is not granted to a Notary, it would be very difficult for him to work as notary and members of public at large would be facing number of difficulties at every step. With this object Section 13 has been enacted by the Legislature as a safeguard.So in view of the settled position of law discussed above, there would not be any room for doubt to conclude that bar provided under Section 13(1) is mandatory and no court shall take cognisance of any offence committed by a notary public in exercise or purported exercise of his functions under the Act except upon a complaint in writing made by an officer authorised by the Central Government or a State Government by a general or special order in that behalf. That is a protection given to the notary public by the rule making authority visualising the functions which a notary pubic has to exercise. Section 8 authorises a notary public to verify, authenticate, certify or attest the execution of any instrument. At that stage, he may not be knowing the genuineness of the document or the consequences which may come after the execution of the document. If no such protection is granted to a notary it will be difficult for them to perform their acts as contemplated to be done as a notary. So whenever a criminal prosecution is launched against a notary public a court should not be oblivious of the protections given to them under the Act and straight away take cognizance without verifying the nature of the complaint and formality to be complied.Case: V.P.JYOLSNA vs. State of Kerala [Crl.M.C.No.4518 of 2014]Coram: Justice MR AnithaCounsel: Sr. Adv M.RAMESH CHANDER, Adv M.SASINDRAN, PP D.

The biology, life cycle and ecophysiology of the Antarctic miteAlaskozetes antarcticus

first_imgThis paper is dedicated to the late Nigel Bonner, who as Head of the Life Sciences Division at British Antarctic Survey, encouraged and supported this research with his characteristic enthusiasm. The cryptostigmatid mite Alaskozetes antarcticus (Michael) is a dominant member of many terrestrial communities in the maritime Antarctic, where it survives extreme temperatures, short cold summers, numerous freeze-thaw cycles, desiccating conditions and a limited season for growth and reproduction. However, examination of features of its biology, from morphology, through life-history strategy to physiology, indicate very little specialization to the Antarctic environment. Alaskozetes antarcticus is a herbivore/detritivore, typical of the Cryptostigmata in general, with low feeding and growth rates, long life span and low reproductive output. Physiological specializations exist in the form of low enzyme activation energies and elevated metabolic rates at low temperatures when compared with temperate species, and associated low optimum temperatures for activity, feeding and growth. Growth rates comparable with temperate species are achieved in the field, with an extended life cycle of five years or more as a result of the short growing season, and the ability of all life stages to overwinter equally successfully. Overwintering survival, involving supercooling enhanced by the use of antifreezes such as glycerol, although initially described in Antarctic species, is now known to be characteristic of many temperate relatives, so it is not a specific adaptation to the polar environment. The obvious success of A. antarcticus in maritime Antarctic terrestrial environments must be attributed to a combination of several features characteristic of the Cryptostigmata in general, rather than to specific polar adaptations.last_img read more

A framework for mapping the distribution of Southern Ocean seabirds across life-history stages, by integrating tracking, demography and phenology.

first_img1. The identification of geographic areas where the densities of animals are highest across their annual cycles is a crucial step in conservation planning. In marine environments, however, it can be particularly difficult to map the distribution of species, and the methods used are usually biased towards adults, neglecting the distribution of other life‐history stages even though they can represent a substantial proportion of the total population.2. Here we develop a methodological framework for estimating population‐level density distributions of seabirds, integrating tracking data across the main life‐history stages (adult breeders and non‐breeders, juveniles and immatures). We incorporate demographic information (adult and juvenile/immature survival, breeding frequency and success, age at first breeding) and phenological data (average timing of breeding and migration) to weight distribution maps according to the proportion of the population represented by each life‐history stage.3. We demonstrate the utility of this framework by applying it to 22 species of albatrosses and petrels that are of conservation concern due to interactions with fisheries. Because juveniles, immatures and non‐breeding adults account for 47%–81% of all individuals of the populations analysed, ignoring the distributions of birds in these stages leads to biased estimates of overlap with threats, and may misdirect management and conservation efforts. Population‐level distribution maps using only adult distributions underestimated exposure to longline fishing effort by 18%–42%, compared with overlap scores based on data from all life‐history stages.4. Synthesis and applications. Our framework synthesizes and improves on previous approaches to estimate seabird densities at sea, is applicable for data‐poor situations, and provides a standard and repeatable method that can be easily updated as new tracking and demographic data become available. We provide scripts in the R language and a Shiny app to facilitate future applications of our approach. We recommend that where sufficient tracking data are available, this framework be used to assess overlap of seabirds with at‐sea threats such as overharvesting, fisheries bycatch, shipping, offshore industry and pollutants. Based on such an analysis, conservation interventions could be directed towards areas where they have the greatest impact on populations.last_img read more

Utah Track and Field Adds 7 Athletes To The Roster

first_imgJune 18, 2018 /Sports News – Local Utah Track and Field Adds 7 Athletes To The Roster FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSALT LAKE CITY-Last Friday, the University of Utah’s track and field program announced the addition of seven athletes to the roster for the upcoming season.Six athletes were signed to national letters of intent during the spring signing period and former Union High star Kennedy Powell affirmed her intent to enroll as well. This brings the current signing class for head coach Kyle Kepler to 11.The new athletes on the roster include 400/800-meter runner Brooklyn James of Clackamas, Ore., who is the 2018 Clackamas High School athlete of the year and was the Class 6-A Oregon state champion in the 400 for the Cavaliers.Also, Taylor Watson, a sprinter from Aurora, Colo.’s Cherokee Trail High School joins the team while specializing in the 100 and 200-meter dashes.Skyler Taylor comes to the Utes as a star hurdler out of Southridge High School of Beaverton, Ore., having swept the 100 and 300-meter hurdle titles in Oregon Class 6-A for the Skyhawks.The Utes added another hurdler in Layton High product Katrina Broadhead as the former Lancers’ star will also compete in the jump (triple jump, high jump, long jump) for Utah.Another Utah high school product, Makayla (Kayla) Reese of Syracuse, joins the Utes after competing as a hurdler for UNLV. She was the Class 5-A champion in 2016 in the 300-meter hurdles and has experience in both the 100 and 400-meter dashes while with the Titans.Powell, a star distance runner at Union (the Class 3-A champion in both the 1600 and 3200-meter runs last month at the state championship meet at BYU) will compete in the middle-distance races for the Utes.Finally, sprinter Lauren O’Banion of Yorba Linda, Calif. rounds out Kepler’s recruiting class and she has experience of excelling in the 100, 200 and 400-meter dashes.Other members of this class include Scarlet Dale of Lancashire, United Kingdom, Sara Leonard of Anaheim Hills, Calif., Brooke Manson of Sammamish, Wash., Grace McLaughlin of Rockford, Ill. and Sophie Ryan of Manlius, N.Y.

New RICS cladding guidance to release thousands of stranded flat owners

first_imgHome » News » New RICS cladding guidance to release thousands of stranded flat owners previous nextRegulation & LawNew RICS cladding guidance to release thousands of stranded flat ownersChanges due to come in on 5th April will enable huge numbers of desperate people to begin marketing their homes soon.Nigel Lewis8th March 202104,090 Views Simplified External Wall System (EWS) guidance to help leaseholders sell flats in blocks with external cladding has been issued by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ (RICS).This guidance explains how from early April onwards there will be no need for EWS checks on all buildings of four storeys or below, as long as they are not clad in aluminium composite material (ACM), other metal composite materials (MCM) or high-pressure laminate (HPL).Also, taller buildings won’t need to be checked if they do not have ACM, MCM or HPL present, and if the cladding covers less than 25% of the building.This has the potential to release hundreds of thousands of stranded leasehold apartment owners who have been seeking to sell their homes but have been unable to do so until now.Ben Elder (pictured), RICS’ Head of Valuation Standards, says: “This guidance provides a framework for consistency across the mortgage valuation sector as to when an EWS1 form is required.”Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick has welcomed the new guidance, claiming that it means nearly 500,000 leaseholders will no longer need an EWS1 form, and that additional assessors are being recruited to clear the existing backlog for those who live in buildings which still need an EWS1 letter.“Backed by nearly £700,000 government funding, over 500 assessors have now started training so that where valuations are needed these can be done more quickly, speeding up the process for homeowners,” says Jenrick.But Tasha Letchford of End Our Cladding Scandal (EOCS) says that the need for an EWS1 form is only one part of the national building safety crisis.She believes the wide range of serious, internal and external, safety defects being uncovered in residential buildings of all heights aren’t being considered.Read more about EWS1 forms.Tower blocks Tasha Letchford Ben Elder cladding EWS1 forms Robert Jenrick March 8, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
