Ramasubraminiun asked the BMC to submit a map along with an affidavit earmarking the area they were going to use within two weeks.CJI: “We want to see a map to which the officers make an oath, on which they say that this is the area we are going to touch and the area which we are not going to touch and you are not going to go beyond this”The bench also asked the BMC as to who had relieved it of Environmental clearances in this regard. CJI: “Whoever relieved you of statutory provisions? Environmental clearance should be based on an EIA. This map along with an affidavit within two weeks.Senior Advocate Shyam Divan appeared for Applicant(s) Conservation Action Trust (CAT) and Shweta Wagh, founder of Collective for Spatial Alternatives in the plea seeking a stay on the ongoing reclamation work of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) coastal road project. Stating that the Petitioner(s) had still not completed service upon Respondents’, Divan submitted that parties were deliberately dragging the petition.Divan: If they cant complete service for so many months and it can’t be that the petition keeps getting dragged on.The bench, taking note of the same, posted the matter for September 4 & directed Petitioners to initiate service upon unserved Respondents in the mean time.On February 25, the CJI led bench had refused to stay the reclamation work on submissions by Divan wherein he had asserted that the ongoing reclamation work being done by the authorities surpassed the earlier order of the Supreme Court in order dated 17th December 2019 which had, in effect insinuated a curb on carrying out any development work. The Court had instead sought response from the stakeholders on the plea.Pointing to a Google map which earmarked the coastline surrounding the roadwork’s area, Divan had then contended that the authorities had been frantically carrying out activities without paying much heed to the coastal ecology.While claiming that extending the area required for carrying out works was in contravention of the Supreme Court’s orders, Divan argued that rapid reclamation was causing irreversible damage to the environment.At this juncture, Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi & Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had interjected and stated that no such contravention of the orders of the Supreme Court was taking place.”Do they expect us to carry out development in the road works by standing at sea?” said Rohatgi, denying the claims of the Applicant.In July Last year, the Bombay High Court had quashed the Coastal Regulation clearances granted to the coastal road project on account of numerous irregularities, which had been overlooked by the Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority.Subsequently, admitting an appeal of the Municipal Corporation, the Supreme Court had stayed the Bombay High Court Judgment on 17th December 2019 and allowed the Authorities to reclaim the land and build the road in the designated area.While doing so, it had however disallowed carrying out any other development work until further orders and had listed the matter on 8th April 2020.Click Here To Download OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Published on October 16, 2014 at 12:07 am Contact Jon: [email protected] | @jmettus STORRS, Conn. — When Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre played soccer for Hartwick College in the early 1990s, he earned a reputation as a clutch goal scorer, despite playing on the back line.In his four-year career, he tallied 18 goals and 10 assists. In 1993, he scored game-winning goals in back-to-back NCAA tournament games. Now McIntyre’s Orange defenders use his past as motivation.“We always joke around about us scoring goals,” SU defender Jordan Murrell said. “We need to score goals. Our coach used to be a defender and he used to score goals.”And as of late, the back line has been producing offensively.A defender has scored five of SU’s last nine goals and in the past two games alone, the back three of Murrell, Tyler Hilliard and Skylar Thomas has four goals and three assists. For a team that’s earned half of its wins by 1-0 decisions, scoring, especially from defenders, hasn’t been the benchmark of No. 2 Syracuse’s historic season. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe defense will look to continue its offensive production when the Orange (12-1, 4-1 Atlantic Coast) takes on Louisville (6-5-1, 3-2) on Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Dr. Mark & Cindy Lynn Stadium in Louisville, Kentucky.“We want to score goals,” Murrell said. “It’s always good to keep clean sheets but we want to contribute on the winning end and we want to score goals.”Being able to get corner kicks and free kicks is crucial for the defenders being able to score, Murrell said, adding that the back line isn’t able to get forward without them. Against Wake Forest last Friday, two free kicks were translated into goals — both traveling from Murrell’s left foot to Hilliard’s head and into the net. In SU’s 4-0 win at Connecticut on Tuesday, it managed seven corner kicks and scored off two of them. Hilliard and Thomas each knocked one in.Hilliard’s two goals against the Demon Deacons marked the first time he scored since 2012, and his brace against the Huskies quadrupled his career goal total in just two games.Against Connecticut, a Murrell corner was stopped by a Huskies’ defender, but a bad touch fell right to Hilliard and his sliding shot found the back of the net.“We’ve waited, what, four years for this?” McIntyre said of Hilliard’s recent scoring streak. “We talk about it with attacking players, goals are like buses. You wait a long time for one and then they all come together. Hopefully he’s got a couple more buses that’ll turn up soon.”Five minutes after Hilliard scored on Tuesday, he picked up an assist on Thomas’ goal. Murrell lined up for another corner, and Hilliard was first to the ball and put a shot on goal. UConn goalkeeper Scott Levene saved the initial shot, but Thomas picked up the rebound and poked it in.The back line’s production hasn’t come at a cost on the defensive end. Wake Forest managed only two shots on net, though it did put one of them in for a goal with less than four minutes to play in what was at the time a 3-0 game.Connecticut didn’t muster one shot on net. The closest it came to scoring was an Ethan Vanacore-Decker free kick that hit the post during a slow start for the entire Syracuse team.“It’s just hard work and buying into our system that we play in and really applying it,” Hilliard said. “Communication is definitely great and just having faith in the boys that you’re playing next to.”Even though Murrell, Thomas and Hilliard — along with goalkeeper Alex Bono — have posted shutouts in 10 games this season, they want to continue turning defensive success into offensive results.Said Murrell: “The less they score, the more we’ll score.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
NASSAU, Bahamas, CMC – The major, life-threatening category 5 Hurricane Dorian made landfall on The Bahamas on Sunday morning, leaving major damage to many of the small islands in the archipelago.The National Hurricane Centre (NHC), in an update, said data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicated that winds increased to 185 miles per hour with the minimum central pressure falling to 911 mb.Hurricane Dorian is the worst hurricane to have ever hit The Bahamas, with the eye of the storm passing directly over Marsh Harbour in Abaco.Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis, during a press conference on Sunday afternoon, pleaded with residents on the island of Grand Bahama to leave high-risk zones immediately.“Grand Bahama, those individuals in the West End area, this is your last warning. We have made all necessary arrangements, at least 13 shelters available.”“May God bless us all,” said Minnis, who said that residents of the Abacos who refused voluntary evacuation are in for the “long haul.”Minnis, who has been Prime Minister since 2017, later broke down when describing the effects of Dorian on the island.“This is probably the most saddened and worst day of my life to address the Bahamian people.“I just want to say as a physician, I’ve been trained to withstand many things but never anything like this. We are facing a hurricane, one that we’ve never seen in the history of the Bahamas. There will be gusts in excess of 200mph. We have some of the best standards of home-building within this region.“Our homes are built to withstand at least 150mph so this will put us to the test that we have never confronted before. The extreme surge of about 20ft… that’s higher than the average roof of our homes here in the Bahamas.“This is a deadly storm and a monster storm,” he continued, “on two previous occasions I have asked Bahamians to leave the cays and in the west and east.“Many have not heeded my warning, many are left behind, there are individuals in the western area who still refuse to leave. I can only say to them that I hope this is not the last time they will hear my voice and may God be with them.“The Marsh Harbour area of Abaco, parts of it is already underwater and some areas you cannot tell the difference between the beginning of the street and where the ocean begins and they have not been hit by the brunt of the storm.”The Prime Minister told reporters that the government does not have legislation authorizing mandatory evacuation, but promised that draft legislation would be brought to Parliament at the earliest opportunity.In the latest update from the NHC at 2:00 pm (local time), the extremely distinct eye of Hurricane Dorian was located near latitude 26.5 North, longitude 77.1 West.Dorian is moving toward the west near 7 mph (11 km/h) and a slower westward motion should continue for the next day or two, followed by a gradual turn toward the northwest.On this track, the core of extremely dangerous Hurricane Dorian will continue to pound Great Abaco on Sunday and then move near or over Grand Bahama Island on Sunday night and Monday.The hurricane should move closer to the Florida east coast late Monday through Tuesday night.Maximum sustained winds are near 185 mph (295 km/h) with higher gusts.Dorian is an extremely dangerous category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some fluctuations in intensity are likely, and Dorian is expected to remain a catastrophic hurricane during the next few days.
