The net cost of running the Supreme Court rose by almost one fifth last year, the 10-year-old court’s annual report reveals. In the year to 31 March the figure – which excludes changes to the valuation of the building – was £6.1m, up from £5.2m in 2018-19. New technology helped top court survive lockdown in its tenth year, annual report saysAccording to the report, the court now employs 63 people, including the 12 justices, up from 59 the previous year. It comments: ‘Staffing has increased as we have needed to review business areas and ensure the appropriate resources are in place to support the justices and the functions of a busy working court with additional objectives to promote the rule of law and support visitors to the building each day.’Other investments included an update of video technology, which Lord Reed, president, says enabled the court to continue to hand down judgments and hear cases despite the lockdown. Over the year the Supreme Court heard 81 appeals and delivered 54 judgments. The largest single subject of judgments was tax, followed by employment, EU law and judicial review. Among the cases summarised in the report is R (on the application of Miller) v The Prime Minister, which led to last September’s prorogation ruling. Chief executive Mark Ormerod reveals that, following last year’s sittings in Edinburgh, Belfast and Cardiff, ‘we are now working on the court sitting elsewhere in 2020’. read more

This work on school capacities delivers a solid foundation on which we can plan for the future, better deal with placing requests, and deliver curriculum needs. ”To view the full report see agenda item 6: http://egenda.dumgal.gov.uk/aksdumgal/users/public/admin/kab14.pl?operation=SUBMIT&meet=64&cmte=EDU&grpid=public&arc=71 read more

Share LocalNews Vendors move back to Roseau Market by: Dominica Vibes News – December 1, 2017 Share Sharing is caring! Share 341 Views one comment Tweet Vendors have relocated back to the Roseau MarketTwo and a half months after hurricane Maria displaced vendors, they have returned to the Roseau Market as of today, Friday 1 December 2017. Vendors resorted to selling their produce on the road side, mainly on King George V Street, after the market was severely impacted by the category 5 hurricane. Though just one day before the move, many voiced concerns surrounding the availability of washrooms, running water and storage space, many have returned to the usual place of selling and buying local produce. Dominica Vibes visited the market and spoke to two local vendors. “I feel good being back in the market specially to meet all those who I could not meet on the street, my customers,” one said. However her concerns are still very present but today she looked at it with an optimistic eye. “The only thing we have a little problem there which I hoping that in due time will be solved in the most fastest way possible which is our washroom facility and we need water to the market, we really need our water so we can wash our hands, we can go to the washroom as ladies but other than that it really feels good being back there, I pray that everything gets back to normal in a speedy way,” she said. Another also expressed being happy being back at the Roseau Market. “I feel very good because I mean I have been vending for a number of years so there’s the original vending place so it very nice to meeting people as usual,” she said. At the time she spoke to Dominica Vibes she said her sales so far have been slow. “If we were by the road side like we last week then you get more people but with the market most people doesn’t come to the market but that’s the place they give us to sell so I guess we have to do what we supposed to do and I just wish more people come to the market to buy the fresh produce,” she added. read more
Sumber: airplaneboneyards.com Kuburan ini memang tidak seseram kuburan pada umumnya, tapi tetap saja menyimpan misteri yang terus membuat benak kita berusaha mencari tahunya. Jika Anda pernah mendengar julukan The Boneyard, ya inilah pemakaman pesawat terbesar bernilai US$35 miliar atau setara dengan Rp326 triliun. Pemakaman yang membentang sejauh 1.052 hektare ini terletak di Tucson, Arizona, Amerika Serikat.Baca Juga: Jejak Boeing 707 di Indonesia: Pernah Dioperasikan 4 Maskapai Hingga Jadi Pesawat KepresidenanSeperti yang dihimpun KabarPenumpang.com dari berbagai sumber, adapaun nama Davis-Monthan Air Force Boneyard, nama tempat ini, diambil dari dua nama pilot asal Tucson yang gugur pada saat Perang Dunia I, Letnan Samuel H. Davis dan Oscar Monthan. Keduanya tewas dalam kecelakaan pesawat. Letnan Samuel H. Davis meninggal dalam kecelakaan pesawat di Florida, sedangkan Oscar Monthan meninggal di Hawaii pada 1924. Tempat ini merupakan satu fasilitas milik 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG), yang diketahui dulunya bernama Military Aircraft Storage and Disposition Center (MASDC). Pada awalnya, Davis-Monthan Air Force Boneyard digunakan sebagai tempat penyimpanan pesawat militer terhitung sejak berakhirnya Perang Dunia II, dan dewasa ini tempat tersebut sudah berevolusi sebagai kuburan pesawat terbesar di dunia.Sumber: airplaneboneyards.comDilansir dari laman jejaktapak.com, pejabat AMARG menyebutkan bahwa The Boneyard menyimpan lebih dari 4.200 pesawat tempur dan 40 moda transportasi udara lainnya. Layaknya tempat yang sangat tertata, tidak sembarang pesawat bisa disimpan sembarangan di tempat ini. Ada kode tertentu yang menentukan dimana pesawat tersebut harusnya berada.Kode “1000” adalah untuk pesawat yang disimpan jangka panjang dengan perawatan penuh. Pesawat-pesawat di area ini berada dalam kondisi siap jalan, jikalau suatu saat dipanggil kembali untuk bertugas.Kode “2000” adalah untuk pesawat yang bagian-bagiannya memungkinkan untuk ‘dikanibalkan’ ke pesawat lain.Kode “3000” adalah untuk pesawat yang masih dalam kondisi siap terbang setiap saat, seperti tempat penitipan sementara, entah pesawat tersebut sedang menunggu transfer ke maskapai lain, di jual ke negara lain, atau reklasifikasi ke tiga jenis lainnya.Dan kode “4000” merupakan kode untuk pesawat yang akan dihancurkan atau didaur ulang.Baca Juga: Bicara Dimensi dan Bobot, Lima Pesawat Ini Masih JuaraAdapun beberapa pesawat yang ‘bersemayam’ di tempat ini di antaranya adalah B-29 Superfortresses, C-47 Skytrains, Convair B-36 Peacemaker, hingga B-52 Stratofortress. Diantara dari sekian banyak pesawat yang ada di sini, ada beberapa pesawat yang dibalut kain penutup untuk menghindari kerusakan yang ditimbulkan oleh cuaca di sekitaran lokasi.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related read more
