The remarks have been made in a written submission filed by Bhushan in the 2009 contempt proceedings instituted suo moto, over his statements alleging corruption against judges. On Monday, the Top Court decided to hold a detailed hearing on whether to accept the explanation tendered by Mr. Bhushan in the said case. The bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra said that it needs to examine if any statements alleging corruption against judges would per se amount to contempt. The matter is slated to be heard tomorrow, i.e. August 17. In the reply filed through Advocate Kamini Jaiswal, it is submitted that allegations of corruption per se cannot be contempt because the same pertains to criticism of a judge for a biased dispensation of justice and would in all cases require “further investigation” before such allegations are brushed aside at the threshold. “Without the allegations (of corruption) against a judge being documented and investigated in the manner further provided under the Judges Inquiry Act, to establish the veracity, the allegation per se cannot amount to contempt in so far as it would nullify the constitutional provisions and statutory procedures for impeachment of a judge on grounds of misbehavior including corruption,” the reply states. Highlighting the importance of investigating such allegations against the Judges, Bhushan recalls the cases of Justice Dinakaran, then Chief Justice of the Karnataka High Court and Justice Soumitra Sen, then Judge of the Calcutta High Court, both of whom were accused of corruption at the relevant time. It is stated that their cases are “”illustrations of how allegations of corruption made against them, were investigated under the constitutional machinery and their removal recommended, following which however, they both resigned from office. It is further pointed out that ‘truth’ is a valid defence against contempt and therefore, to hold the alleged contemnor guilty of contempt, the Court will have to necessarily return a finding that: (a) such defence is not in public interest; and (b) the request for invoking such defence is not bona-fide. Reliance is placed on observations made by jurist HM Seervai in Constitutional Law of India, that the defense of truth has to be made available in order for operation of Articles 124(4) and 125(5) of the Constitution of India (relating to removal of judges), otherwise the said provisions would be rendered “unworkable”. Bhushan has gone on to recall a plethora of incidents where the factum of corruption in the Judiciary was commented upon by former judges of the Supreme Court itself, was taken note of in various judgments of the Supreme Court as well as of the High Courts in the country, etc. He has also emphasized on incidents where the Courts dismissed contempt cases, against persons who imputed allegations of judicial corruption, with remarks like “courts were not supposed to be too sensitive to stretch the law of contempt too far.” He has also admitted that in the case of C. Ravichandran Iyer v. Justice AM Bhattacharjee & Ors., 1995 SCC (5) 457, the Supreme Court had indicated that members of the bar should use only the in-house procedure for making complaints against judges . However, he has submitted that this internal procedure is absolutely “inadequate” and “ineffective”; and the impeachment procedure is too complex and political. “Therefore, at present there is no effective procedure to deal with corruption in the judiciary other than the public and particularly through lawyers who know from experience the extent of corruption in the judiciary or vis a vis a particular judge,” the reply states. Significantly, Bhsuhan has already been held guilty of contempt in connection to his tweets about the Chief Justice of India and the Supreme Court. The bench will hear him on sentence on August 20.

[online] Available at: https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/documents/4187653/9753784/Participation+in+learning These days, we are witnessing concerns about the (non) arrival of tourists and the “July hole”, and regardless of this important topic, let’s turn the discourse for a moment to one of the “holes” that should be of particular concern to us. It is a financial, value, priority hole that we have had for our young people, theirs and our future for years. While in recent years investments in tourism have flourished and ranked Croatia high on the scale of tourism investment potential (7/43), while we have received awards for infrastructure projects and nautical tourism and invested in interpretation centers, beaches, events, “strengthening the strength of the brand” and sl… investments in YOUTH, their education and development as drivers of change and future creators of new policies and trends – all these years it is negligible and sad. For someone who could be classified as an optimist, in the way this country treats young people, with all good will, I do not find anything optimistic. Various researches, measurements, comparisons and analyzes related to investments in people and young people gloomily confirm what we are witnessing – that this land is an evil stepmother to her children and youth! She neither loves them, nor understands them, nor respects them, nor develops them, nor supports them – she left them to the streets and the hands of other countries. Take, for example, IMD – World Talent Ranking 2018 (IMD World Talent Ranking), according to whose report, Croatia, on the list of 63 countries, is in a distant 54th place!The report assesses the country’s ability to build, attract and retain talented people to create a base of talented people needed to increase competitiveness and grow the economy. Croatia is at the bottom of the scale in terms of investment in practice during schooling (60th out of 63), in terms of companies investing in employee training (63rd), in attracting and retaining talented people (63rd), employee motivation (62nd), by outflows brains (57), meeting market demands for skilled labor (62) and higher education (60) . Human resource development, talent management and youth are simply not a priority of this country. We neither create, nor retain, nor invest in talent.What are we doing to change that? The World Bank’s Human Capital Index shows how much a country prepares its people for the future, ie how much countries lose on the productivity of the economy due to insufficient investment in their people . Last year, in a ranking of 157 countries, Croatia was in a good 36th place and says that it will realize 72% of potential / productivity compared to what it could be if the education and health systems gave their maximum. Despite this solid position, we need to look back area of education. The study shows that a child in Croatia has 10,7 “useful” years of schooling, and that another 2,6 years should be spent educating. In addition, the Global Human Capital Index ranks Croatia 37th out of 130 countries, but again with the weakest youth policies. In 2017, it was worst positioned in the age group 15-24 due to the high youth unemployment rate (115th place), the labor force participation rate (107th place) and the (poor) quality of education (97th place). This report also shows the issue of employee education, which positions us in 114th place out of 130 . And without even looking at these indices, everyday life in our schools or colleges is proof of these sad positions. We call for a systematic reform that will prepare young people for life and business reality. We are crying out for a system that young people will gladly go into. What are we doing to change this?Of course, investments in infrastructure projects, events and marketing campaigns are welcome, but the problem is that people, young people and education have not been a priority for investment all these years. And all successful countries confirm that education is a generator of development. Croatian allocations from the education budget have been below the European average for years. According to the World Bank Group, for 2013, budget allocations were 4.6% of GDP while the EU average was 5.1%, for example Iceland 7.72% and Sweden 7.65% . These investments have increased slightly recently, but are still minor compared to these averages. As well as the allocation of state budget funds for research and development in GDP. In 2017, they were 0.7% (CBS) and even in the best years (2004) they were around 1%, while the world average was 2.23% and the EU average 2.03%. The countries our young people go to allocate about 3%; Germany 2.94%, Denmark 2.85%, Finland 2.75%. Last year, 57% of students expressed that the faculty did not prepare them well for future business challenges, and 81.5% (N = 5.711) confirmed that they would move out for a professional career . This is sadly confirmed by the list of 50 world universities where Croatia ranks 43rd . According to the 2019 list, the United States is in first place, followed by Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Denmark. Here, the following are assessed: sources of funding and investment in higher education, political and social environment, networking and openness, and outcome. We are the worst in general cooperation with the economy and industry, which ranks us again at our traditional bottom of the scale – 48th place on the list of 50 countries. Famous regional centers of competence they were supposed to fix this picture. But we’ve been hearing about them for years. We also chant about their beginnings at congresses and gatherings, while failing to develop generations of ambassadors of the profession. And the beginning got stuck somewhere between the two ministries, so on the ground… mostly saga. Greater financial resources, innovative programs and a better system of practical training and connections with the business sector are key to generating young professionals in our labor market. What are we doing to change this?The research conducted by the CES indicates that class teachers / professional associates (N = 3.311) estimate that 27.9% of students have strong abilities and preferences for certain teaching areas, while 72.1% do not . The key question here is how do we nurture, develop and guide these 27.9% of gifted students? Are we ennobling their visible talent and potential? And what do we do with the dominant 72.1%? Have we created the conditions and opportunities to explore and their abilities, talents and hidden potentials? Do we build their self-confidence or do we leave them to themselves? We frame young people with their system and form. And they need help to discover their “passions”, potentials and talents. What are we doing to change that?Furthermore, the same research indicates that young people need help, support, guidance in choosing a future profession and understanding their abilities. In the sample of students in the final grade of primary school in the school year 2015/2016 (N = 3.590), the largest number of students (64.9%) expressed interest in vocational guidance, and 60.9% of students in the final grade of secondary school (N = 3.908) intend to study. 38.5% do not yet know what they want to study, and 59.3% have some difficulty in deciding to continue their education. A large number of parents would certainly confirm this, with professors (N = 2.870) estimating that 38.4% of students need vocational guidance services. So, a good part of our young people “wander” in the professional definition. What are we doing to change this?Young people do not know what to do, where to go and how to do it. But then, according to the inertia of life and the need for pocket money, they get a job. And what happens? The research of the Ministry of Social Policy and Youth (2015) conducted on young people aged 15-29 (N = 2.000) indicates that 55% of young people are not employed in their profession, to work 3 hours longer than the legally prescribed norm for 20% lower salary than average of the Republic of Croatia . And of all the offered job factors, the amount of salary and payment of overtime hours, in particular, young people in tourism (N = 5.060) rate the worst; both factors with a score of 2.9 out of 5 . We demotivate young people from the first work experiences. What are we doing to change this?Those who have not been employed or are looking for new perspectives, in the last 15 years, on average 61 to 70% of them intensively and continuously express a desire to go abroad, with a quarter of them wanting to leave Croatia permanently. Unemployment and mass emigration of young professionals to other countries are considered a burning generational problem . Unfortunately, this trend is also confirmed by Gallup’s research in the Republic of Croatia, according to which 33% of young people aged 15-29 express a desire to move permanently to another country (N = 1.000). Unfortunately, Croatian everyday life demonstrates that these wishes are not only expressed but also realized. This is confirmed by this year’s CES number of 25.412 unemployed young people under 29 and 11.207 officially registered departures of young people aged 15 to 29 last year . And how many more unregistered souls have left us? It is assumed that every third young person with a diploma in hand makes their knowledge and talents available to another country – one of those at the top of the aforementioned rankings. Young people want to leave and leave. We are losing generations of talent. What are we doing to change this? Our schools are outdated. Practices are a dead letter on paper or just done side activities to satisfy the form. However, it is alarming that only 4.4% of students and staff improve their knowledge and skills on their own initiative outside of university and work obligations, which indicates the need for systematic and continuous awareness of the importance of lifelong learning . In the context of Croatia, we have to talk about this topic for all age groups because only 2.9% are educated for life, while the EU average is 11.1% . Take the example of Sweden, where 29.2% of the population has a lifelong education, in Finland 28.5% and in Denmark 23.5%, just to realize for a moment how far behind we are and how much effort it takes to change this. We should also be concerned that the majority (94%) of surveyed students were not included in a European or international student mobility program, which respondents predominantly associate with a lack of financial resources and their own lack of interest in going abroad . The numerical coincidence is interesting, but the sad reality is that 95% of the surveyed young people from tourism also did not participate in foreign exchanges and study stays. Furthermore, in Croatia there are 850 youth associations for young people, and work with young people is mostly of a voluntary nature. But for more than 70% of the 2.000 young people, there is still a need to open multi-purpose youth centers, and counseling for young people who are victims of violence and counseling for self-employment and entrepreneurship are sought by approximately four-fifths of respondents . Young people do not have a tendency towards lifelong learning. What are we doing to change this?We must not ignore the results of PISA tests (N = 6952) in which 86.5% of students manage to solve only simple problem tasks. Understanding problems, logical problem solving, critical thinking, originality in approach, creativity in thinking are elements that our students generally lack. And worst of all, there is no concern about it. In tourism schools, the aspects of “teacher innovation in knowledge transfer” (average grade = 3.3) and “realistic picture of work in tourism obtained by previous education” (average grade = 3.5) are the lowest . According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), by 2025 jobs related to physical and basic cognitive skills will be in decline. Routine jobs will be eliminated, and 65% of today’s children will end up in careers that do not yet exist . Young people need to strengthen their social-entrepreneurial-life skills. Schools and teachers but also non-formal education can play a big role in this process. What are we doing to change that?A culture of courtesy is the first thought of tourism. Unfortunately, this thesis is not confirmed everywhere in Croatia. Nor among the young. Almost half of the surveyed young people (N = 5.060) who work in tourism in relation to guests are in the phase of apathy (45.7%), irritation (1.5%) and antagonism (1.3%). They treat the guest formally, angrily or let him know that he is not welcome. We return to the beginning of the circle again because we can conclude that a large part of young people either a) have chosen the wrong profession or b) do not have developed soft skills and / or c) express their dissatisfaction with the job towards the guest. Young people are in apathy towards guests. What are we doing to change this?The Ministry of Science and Education points to a short-term growth trend in student enrollment in vocational occupations. This is an increase of 6-12% of chefs and waiters, but let’s not forget that 6 students have been lost in the last 44.409 years. A whole Sisak of young people. Coastal towns such as Rab, Poreč, Crikvenica, Rovinj… are rapidly losing young people’s interest in this profession. These growing misery is not a consequence of the increased interest of students or their parents, let alone the famous “promotion of the professional profession”. The absurdities of what is generally called the promotion of the profession and are over 20 times smaller in monetary currency compared to the co-financing of concrete holes called swimming pools. This is the sad order of values of the Ministry of Tourism for too many years. Young people should be interested in tourism. Dignity needs to be restored to the profession. Promotion and attraction are much more than scholarships and videos. What are we doing to change that?The Youthonomics Global Index analyzes how friendly countries are to young people, and with this survey Croatia is again at its traditional bottom of the scale, ranking 51st out of 64 countries . At the top of the list is Norway, which shows a number of best practices, including a flexible labor market, which is a great advantage for young people. As far as education is concerned, according to this index, our neighbors should be our neighbors – Slovenia – whose primary and secondary education takes the first place. Youthonomics measures “youth optimism”, ie the extent to which young people can expect an improvement in their living conditions. And here we are again on a non-optimistic background – 60th out of 64 places, and according to the “youth outlook” indicator – an indicator that gives an insight into current and future conditions for young people – we are “knocking” the last 64th place. In addition to not being friendly and mentoring-oriented towards our young people, they do not even hope to improve conditions in their country in the short term. What are we doing to change that?Another important index is The Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) as a comparative analysis that measures how successfully states and cities create, attract and retain talent with a focus on entrepreneurial talent . This year, Croatia is ranked 55th out of 125 countries, with 99th place in attracting talent, 120th place in retaining “brains”, 105th place in employability skills, 87th place in the quality of management schools, 122nd place in terms of employee development. Guess the ranking of the most open countries for entrepreneurial talent? At the very top are Switzerland, Singapore, USA, Norway, Denmark, Finland… Due to the importance of entrepreneurial talent, new approaches are being introduced to the labor market, which encourage and protect the future of employees. How much entrepreneurial talents develop in our young people. What are we doing to change that?And now the value system – an order that is important for each individual but also the collective because if it is not harmonized it leads to the greatest extent of dissatisfaction and conflict. The report of the Ministry and Social Policy of Youth (2015) indicates an increase in the importance of family and work among young people and a decrease in preoccupation with entertainment and leisure. As factors of success in Croatian society, young people emphasize much less the circumstances and behaviors related to the competence, responsibility and commitment of individuals in relation to factors such as family or political networks and the ability to cunningly “cope” in a given environment. This is also an internal confirmation of why young Croats are literally the most pessimistic about their future compared to their peers from the remaining 63 countries. What are we doing to change that? Finally, let’s look at the Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index, which ranks Croatia 32nd on the list of 136 countries. And no matter how optimistic it may seem at first, and we would say wow, at least we know what we are doing in tourism, and here we are flooded with a cold shower because the human side of tourism is again in failure and on the margins. According to the indicator “human resources and labor market” which is part of this index, we are on the 85th place, on the qualification of the workforce – on the 87th place, on the scope of employee training – on the 120th place, on the ease of finding qualified employees on – 106. place . And here, those are the biggest holes of our tourism. And every year they get deeper! Recognizing the differences in the index and the methodology of research and measurement, we are aware that they do not in themselves change the situation, but very clearly reflect our decisions, priorities and behaviors. And they bring us to the point where we need to honestly and loudly admit to ourselves – we have abandoned our children and youth! We have neglected them in too many categories and for too long. They left them by the roadside for Nowhere in the hope that Someone Else would take care of them. Recovering from the trauma of leaving is a long process. Holes in tourism will become increasingly painful. What are we going to do to change that?Author: doc. dr. sc. Marinela Dropulic Ruzic, MERAKLIS / Cover photo: Pixabay.com  CES (2016).

Despite the presence of the Ebola virus and government’s lack of capacity to combat the spread of the disease, Capitol Hill has passed a budget of US$660,236,000 million.A draft National budget was submitted to the Legislature by the Executive in April of this year for deliberations, before opening it to full plenary. Liberia was hit by the second outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease. Since then, the budget had been debated and discussed behind closed-doors until yesterday when it surfaced on the floor of the House of Representatives.The Committee on Ways, Means and Finance and Public Accounts presented the bill before plenary.“Having thoroughly scrutinized the Draft National Budget for FY 2014/15 and derived a National Budget envelope of US$660,236,000, the Joint Committee requests the passage of the FY14/15 National Budget into law,” the Committee said.Representative Munah Pelham-Youngblood’s motion to pass the draft law was overwhelmingly endorsed and immediately transmitted to the Senate for concurrence.The Senate then acted with speed and passed the Act in an Executive Session and has since communicated that to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for signature and expected to be printed into handbill by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.In the 2014/15 Budget, government is set to collect US$25 million for signature bonus from the sale of oil blocks 6, 7, 16 & 17 while Contingent Borrowing is set at US$10 million.According to the Joint Committee, the Executive submitted an initial budget envelope of US$473,252,000 but additional US$7,047,000 revenue was realized during budget hearings. It was realized that government is to collect US$74, 300,000 from Grant (contingent) and Grant (core) respectively. Borrowing (core) is US$70,637,000 in the new budget.The fate of civil servants still hangs in the balance as up to press time, as there was no news about the over 40,000 public workers in the new budget.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Neil Warnock has told talkSPORT he believes QPR have ‘lost a bit of their soul’ under his successor Mark Hughes.Warnock, now in charge at Leeds, was sacked by Rangers in January and replaced by Hughes, whose team are without a league win this season despite more heavy spending during the summer.“It’s alright having good players but you’ve got to get them gelling and that’s not possible at the moment,” he said.“I just think they’ve lost a little bit of the soul of the club with so many people coming from abroad, but that’s the manager’s choice.“I felt three or four sensible signings would have been sufficient. I would have gone English to get that dressing room [together]. I thought it was a great dressing room.“I suppose Mark has been used to foreign players and with the agents involved it’s easier to bring in foreign players but gelling them is a little bit more difficult, no matter how good they are.“The results haven’t been good enough and they’ve got to turn it around because it would be a worry with the wage bill what it is now to carry on the second half of the season like they have done the first.”Click here for the QPR v Southampton quiz Should Hughes keep his job as QPR manager?

Crystal Palace 1 Liverpool 2: Salah marks Klopp milestone with late winner Rob Lancaster Last updated 1 year ago 21:23 3/31/18 Getty Images Liverpool scored twice in the second half to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 in Jurgen Klopp’s 100th Premier League game in charge. Mohamed Salah struck a late winner as Jurgen Klopp marked his 100th game in charge of Liverpool with a 2-1 win over relegation-threatened Crystal Palace.The Egyptian scored his 29th goal of a hugely impressive debut season in England, his 84th-minute finish completing Liverpool’s turnaround at Selhurst Park.Luka Milivojevic converted a13th-minute penalty to give the hosts a half-time lead after Loris Karius’ decision to rush out and confront Wilfried Zaha had resulted in a blatant foul on the Palace player.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player However, Sadio Mane equalised four minutes after the break to draw Liverpool level, steering home James Milner’s low cross from the left.The goal was the highlight of an eventful game for the Senegal international, who had a first-half effort chalked off, was booked for diving before the break and then somehow avoided seeing a second yellow card for deliberate handball.Salah sealed the comeback with a composed finish, controlling the ball neatly before prodding beyond Wayne Hennessey to lift Liverpool up to second in the table.679 – Liverpool have now won 679 top-flight away games – no side has ever won more (level with Arsenal). Pillar. #CRYLIV— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) March 31, 2018The visitors had started brightly too, controlling the opening stages only to fall behind when Zaha’s clever burst in behind Trent Alexander-Arnold led to Karius conceding a penalty.The Palace winger had already caught out the teenage full-back in the opening minutes with a similar run in behind, only for Liverpool’s goalkeeper to block his attempt with his chest.Karius wasn’t required when the two faced each other for a second time soon after, but his late arrival saw him spectacularly take out Zaha and gift spot-kick specialist Milivojevic the chance to break the deadlock.Liverpool’s attempts to respond prior to the break centred around Mane, with the forward seeing a close-range header rightly ruled out for offside.He inadvertently helped the hosts by diverting Virgil van Dijk’s on-target header wide of the target before picking up a booking for simulation, his theatrical fall following a tackle by James McArthur failing to fool referee Neil Swarbrick.Yet a switch of ends resulted in a change of fortunes for Mane and Liverpool, who lost second-half substitute Adam Lallana to injury just 324 seconds after his arrival off the bench.James Milner sold Aaron Wan-Bissaka a dummy to create space for a low cross that left his team-mate needing to just apply the finishing touch from close range.Benteke failed to take two glorious chances to put Palace back in front, first lobbing wide with only Karius to beat before spooning over Andros Townsend’s pass, and Salah made the Belgian pay for his profligacy.The winger showed great composure to tuck home Andrew Robertson’s cross from the left, his 37th goal in all competitions securing a morale-boosting result ahead of the mouth-watering Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City in midweek.Key Opta stats:- Liverpool have now won 679 top-flight away games – no side has ever won more (level with Arsenal).- Mohamed Salah has now scored in 21 different Premier League games this season; a joint-high for a 38-game season in the competition (Cristiano Ronaldo in 2007-08 and Robin van Persie in 2012-13).- Salah has been involved in 38 Premier League goals this season (29 goals, 9 assists), the most by any player in the competition since Luis Suarez in 2013-14 (43).- Crystal Palace are the first team to lose three consecutive Premier League home games thanks to goals conceded in the final 10 minutes (88th vs Tottenham, 90th vs Man Utd and 84th vs Liverpool).- Sadio Mané became the joint-highest scoring Senegalese player in Premier League history, equalling Demba Ba’s haul of 43 in the competition. read more
