We brought the resort lifestyle experience to the ASCAYA residence – incorporating an open layout with substantial gathering places, fluid connectivity from indoor-outdoor spaces, and amenities that overlook the Las Vegas Strip.Save this picture!© Velich StudioWith pockets of flexible spaces, future homeowners can create different setting and experiences.

The home also features a covered outdoor dining room, a sunken fire pit, outdoor spa, an indoor multi-functional room with a highly coveted roof deck.

  • Reporters Without Borders denounces the poor example set by some NEPAD members

    first_img News Organisation Central African RepublicAfrica Help by sharing this information RSF_en A delegation from the NEPAD is expected to participate in the G8 Summit to be held this year in Kananaskis. Although Reporters Without Borders can but support this project, the organisation considers that NEPAD’s goals are unachievable in the absence of a free, independent and pluralistic press. Freedom of the press is in jeopardy in five of NEPAD’s member countries (Cameroon, Ethiopia, Gabon, Rwanda and Tunisia). Follow the news on Central African Republic Central African RepublicAfrica A delegation from the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) is expected to participate in the G8 Summit to be held this year in Kananaskis (Canada) on 26 and 27 June. Reporters Without Borders takes this opportunity to stress that freedom of the press in five of NEPAD’s member countries (Cameroon, Ethiopia, Gabon, Rwanda and Tunisia), is in jeopardy: press freedom violations occur frequently and perpetrators are going unpunishedAlthough Reporters Without Borders can but support this project, whose purpose is to promote “peace, security, democracy, proper governance, the respect of human rights and sound economic management,” the organisation considers that NEPAD’s goals are unachievable in the absence of a free, independent and pluralistic press and that it is bound to fail as long as its member-states are not exemplary models for freedom of information. It is therefore up to the five Heads of State who are NEPAD’s key sponsors (Messrs. Abdelaziz Bouteflika, Thabo Mbeki, Hosni Moubarak, Olusegun Obasanjo and Abdulaye Wade) to set an example if they hope to gain credibility among their own peoples, the international community and their African economic partners. Yet, even in this respect, they fall short.Consequently, Reporters Without Borders is requesting the G8 Heads of State to do whatever necessary to ensure that their meeting with the NEPAD representatives results in concrete measures designed to protect press freedom in Africa, and abolish all prison terms for press offences other than incitement to hatred or murder. Lastly, Reporters Without Borders requests the five Heads of State who spearheaded NEPAD to call to order those member countries that are defying freedom of the press.Reminder:In Ethiopia, three journalists have been imprisoned for several months for having criticized the government or for having given members of the opposition an opportunity to express their opinions. A dozen other members of the press named in judicial proceedings are likely to be arraigned at any time. The liberalisation of radio and television programming, announced many times over, has yet to be implemented.In Rwanda, journalists are still being subjected to threats and pressure, and at least two of them have remained behind bars for several years, simply because they were doing their job. The use of self-censorship is extremely widespread, for journalists cannot touch upon certain subjects without running the risk of incurring the wrath of government authorities. All radio and television stations are state-run.In Tunisia, pressures exerted by the current regime have been constantly increasing on the few journalists who continue—as best they can—to carry on their work on the fringe of a state-controlled press. A cyberpolice force has set up what amounts to a veritable Internet blockade. Zouhair Yahyaoui, who created the TUNeZINE.com news website, was arrested in Tunis on 4 June 2002. Accused of “circulating false information,” he may be facing a five-year prison sentence.In Cameroon, five journalists have been arrested since January 2001 for having exposed the corruption of certain senior government officials, or for having criticized police methods. Others have been forced to go into hiding to avoid being interrogated themselves.Lastly, in Gabon, the government has banned the only opposition newspaper and the public media remain almost exclusively under the control of President Omar Bongo.

The Bench comprised of Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan and Justice B Vijaysen Reddy has issued notices to the Central Government, Government of Telangana, Waqf Board and the Commissioner, Endowments etc. It has asked the Assistant Solicitor General of India and Advocate General of Telangana to file their Counter affidavits in the matter by October 1, 2020. The petition has been filed by Advocate Khaja Aijazuddin, practicing Advocate at Telangana High Court, alleging that two Mosques and one Temple, situated/ within the vicinity of the Secretariat Building were damaged during the demolition process. A Division Bench of the Telangana High Court had refused to interfere with the State Government’s decision to modify/ demolish the old Secretariat Building to construct a new one, last month. An appeal against this order was dismissed by the Top Court holding that the High Court had already rendered the decision on merits. Accordingly, the demolition work commenced, allegedly damaging the religious places situated therein. The present plea, though not concerned with the demolition of the Secretariat per se, avers that the religious places situate therein have existed since a long time and their demolition amounts to deprivation of citizens’ fundamental rights enshrined under Articles 14, 21, 25 and 26 of the Constitution. The Petitioner had earlier approached the Supreme Court praying that such unauthorized demolition of religious structures be declared as illegal. However, the plea was withdrawn with liberty to approach the High Court. In his plea, Advocate Aijazuddin has contended that the Government is statutorily bound to protect these religious places and it is incumbent upon them to rebuild the structures, at the same place where they previously stood. It is alleged that the Government has finalized the construction design of the new Secretariat, while there is ‘not even a whisper’ about inclusion of the temple and/ or the Mosques in the new Plan. “The two mosques which were demolished are Waqf Properties, their administration, management and title vests under the provisions of The Waqf Act, 1995. The Respondent Nos. 3 & 4 [Chairman and CEO of Telangana State Wakf Board] are duty bound to adhere in compliance of The Waqf Act, 1995,” he submitted. In this backdrop, the Top Court has been urged to term the demolition of Religious Places as highly unwarranted, illegal and unconstitutional and to direct the competent authorities discharge their statutory duties to protect the Religious Places and to act in accordance with the law. It is prayed that the State Government be directed to pass an Executive Order or Resolution in the State Assembly, making a commitment to rebuild the Religious Places, i.e., two Mosques and one Temple, within the Secretariat Complex Building, at the same places where the structures previously stood.The matter is now listed for hearing on October 8, 2020.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice S Vishwajith Shetty said “Someday we must modernize.” Referring to the present COVID-19 situation it said “In the present circumstance should it not be welcomed? People don’t need to handle notes which may be handled by 50 other people in a day.” Amended Central Motor Vehicle Rules:In the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 (hereinafter referred to as the principal rules), in Rule 47, in sub-rule (1), after clause (i), the following clause shall be inserted, namely:- “(ia) proof of fitment of FASTag specified in Rule 138A;”. In the principal rules, for the Rule 138A, the following rule shall be substituted, namely:- “138A. Fitment of FASTag.- (1) Categories M and N motor vehicles manufactured on and after the 1st July, 2017, shall be fitted with FASTag having such specifications as may be specified by the Central Government:Provided that in case of any vehicle which is sold in the form of drive-away-chassis without windscreen, such FASTag shall be fitted in the windscreen by the dealer at the time of providing such windscreen.(2) The fitment of FASTag shall be verified by the registering authority at the time of registration.Explanation – For the purposes of this rule, FASTag means an onboard unit (transponder) or any such device fitted on the front windscreen of the vehicle. The application for stay was filed by petitioner Geetha Mishra who has moved the court challenging provisions of the National Highways Authority Act (NHAI) and the National Highways Fee (Determination of Rates and Collection) Rules. Advocate G R Mohan appearing for the petitioner submitted that the Notification dated 06-11-2020 is in violation of the Fundamental Right of people who use Four Wheeler within the City and who may not go outside the city or use the National Highway. The bench in its order noted that “Perusal of writ petition shows that challenge is to validity of section 8 (a) of NHAI act and also to validity of NHAI 3 (Determination of rates and collection) Rules. By filing IA the applicant in the petitioner is seeking stay of operation of the amended CMV and notification issued pursuant to amended rules. There is absolutely no challenge to the amendment made to the said rule of 1989 in the main petition.” It added “An interim relief can be granted in aid of final relief. In this case there is absolutely no challenge to amended rules of 1989.” The court also turned down the reliance made by the petition in a case of the Bombay High Court, by which a notice has been issued in a petition. The court said “Even the said order is irrelevant as in the petition there is no challenge to the validity of the amendment to the rule of 1989. Hence the application is misconceived and the same is rejected.” The court will now take up the case on April 9, when it will fix a date for final hearing of the main matters.
