SolarWorld to appeal court ruling in $793 million dispute

first_imgSolarWorld to appeal court ruling in $793 million disputeA U.S. court has granted Hemlock’s hefty claim against the leading solar PV company, which remains confident that enforcement of the lawusuit will fail in Germany. July 27, 2016 pv magazine Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share German PV giant SolarWorld AG said Wednesday that it would appeal a decision on Tuesday by a U.S. judge to grant Hemlock Semiconductor Corp.’s claim for damages amounting to $793 million in the first instance.The legal dispute between Hemlock and SolarWorld subsidiary SolarWorld Industries Sachsen GmbH stems from a silicon supply deal that went south after silicon prices plummeted.SolarWorld said the unit would appeal the judgment at the U.S. Intermediate Court of Appeals, adding that it expected proceedings to last about a year.“Inspite of this judgment in the first instance, SolarWorld AG continues to assume that Hemlock will not be able to enforce any claims in Germany,” the company said.SolarWorld maintains that there are anti-trust concerns under EU law “regarding the effectiveness of the underlying supply contracts.”Popular content ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Principle of justice and controversy related to it

first_imgThe underprivileged and the underprivileged consider justice to be the mainstream for their motivation to live their lives longer. Minorities believe that they will get justice from the court. In this desire, they try to seek justice by applying their accumulated capital.What is justiceThe concept of justice first emerged in the world from Girish’s empire. Among the different views of justice, most opinionated are the views of Aristotle and Sukrant. Both of these scholars have considered justice in their books with the aim of an imaginary state. How should they create a new and imaginary rule? The concept of how new systems should be is the first in the world. Talking about the definition of justice, justice and labor is an undertaking that is paid to us as payment through a feeling of deprivation. What kind of payment is this that no physical return is available and cannot be made available because now we are based on policies and MACOCO. These things include faith, proof, freedom, no love day, etc. Aristotle has told in his imaginary history of Ethiopia Samaraja how King Klick created a measure between his kings and those of kings to win a society free from the guilt of justice and the generations in society. They need to benefit from it, get it, and improve their future.Some special achievements of justice.Special achievements of justice in the history of the world are as follows, but some of them are the main ones.The Roman Empire’s justice system.The Roman emperor is one of the largest par states in the world. He generated a new idea between his people and his government through which the justice process is known. He created a new one measure to think and treat his war captives and conquered kings correctly. He did many things for the benefit of the people of his state and won a judicial way for them. The major story of these is the capital of August horse. The capital of the sky horse was part of an economic empire won by the Roman Empire, under which they allowed everyone the freedom to live the idea of ​​economic and social justice.Mohammed’s visit to Mecca and Medina.The founder of Islam, the founder of the book Mohammed, whose name is the Quran, gives the idea of ​​books, both political and religious. There is also the question of justice and the judicial process associated with Islam. It has been told that like you can create a new experiment for any woman or any dog ​​of the society, middle and disadvantaged sections. For this, he made other cars like Halala Deprivation and Jihad.The resurgence of Europe and Pune Jagran!The awakening initiated by the clergy of Christianity to stop the unethical propagation of religion was also added to the judicial processes. For this, prominent people like Girls’ Life and Magny played their own form. He gave an idea of ​​how social justice goes through the process and that justice is equal for all. No exemption for the special category and no exemption for common classes. Passed in the Parliament of France that everyone has to pay taxes whether it is clergy, middle class, or lower class. The treaty between Persia and Australia in Germany can also be considered a judicial process.How is the idea of ​​justice in the 21st century?Modern Vishwajyoti is the era of digitalization in which globalization scales are connected. It has an International Justice Board. There are international courts and democratic courts are in many types of democratic countries. Chief among these are India, Britain, and America. In India, the court has so much authority because the Prime Minister of India can call the court for a case. You can see this case during the tenure of Indira Gandhi. How can US President Donald Trump get a notification from the court that he can make his public post public only? He cannot be interrupted by actions on the block of anyone private. But it is true that these developed and developing countries also have some disadvantaged people. It is impossible to get justice, of which India is one. It is challenging for a deprived section to get justice as a respect for a government that is struggling with extreme corruption and corruption-related policies.Justice in India.India, since it became free, talks of a united justice, leaving aside the limited and designated injustice of socialist ideas. The appellate method adopted by PN Bhagwati has to be wonderful and Hassan. We can appeal to any worker to many judicial processes and bring them under the procedures, which can increase the ease of nations getting justice for us. This facilitation can come from an idea where many types of work are done and they consider the issues related to light and mix them under consideration. India tries to deliver justice under the Scheduled and Scheduled Tribes Act. The Constitution of India is one of the largest judicial process documents. The fundamental rights of India and the fundamental one deep element show a paisa triptis which we can know about many types of things. In an amazing balance created between the government and the public, the following works as follows. In which election, governance, system, job, or education is linked to health education and many types of systems. India also has a variety of laws such as the Scheduled Tribes Protection Act. Scheduled Caste Protection Act. Women’s Commission. Divyang Commission. And so on. The process of impeachment is also a skill used in the Indian court process. The Indian legislator has the power to conduct an impeachment for his actions and for regular state statutes under which a Presidential position like President comes.What will be the future of justice?There are different types of justice challenges before the modern world, one of which is also a major challenge. In the absence of digitalization, it is not accessible to everyone, rural and panch. It is impossible for him to appeal to the court and legally use digital which also reflects the function of his deposition. Issues such as cyber-attack and cyber terrorism that can turn disadvantaged people into terrorism zones. Similar is the trend of Maoism and feminism associated in India which shows the equality of certain classes of society. Divyangs in India is viewed as being asafetida and morally because they have a sense of sugarcane more than goodwill which can prove to be a hindrance to their justice process. These thoughts should keep the nightmare of Kesarmal.last_img read more

Patricia Beech | People’s Defender 30 month term, must report as sex offender for 25 yearsBy Patricia [email protected] On Monday, Oct. 26, Brown County Judge Scott T. Gusweiler sentenced former Adams County Chief Deputy Jeff McCarty to 30 months in prison for drugging and sexually molesting a fifteen year old girl.In February a grand jury indicted McCarty on two counts of rape, sexual battery and sexual misconduct with a minor.At his sentencing McCarty told the court, “I think I should just simply apologize to everyone involved in this. It’s had an impact on my lif,; it’s had an impact on several lives, on both sides.”After nearly a year of waiting for justice the victim’s family was unimpressed by McCarty’s apology. The victim’s grandfather told a local news station, “Any parent or grandparent knows he deserves to hang because he’s an animal.”Defense attorney Scott R. Croswell argued against sending McCarty to prison because of the danger it would present to him as a former police officer. He asked that his client be placed on probation and sentenced to time in the county jail.Prosecuting Attorney Seth Tieger argued against giving McCarty probation, “As a former police officer, he knows that sex offenders go to prison. He has no right to avoid prison because of the ramifications he’ll face because he was a cop.”Tieger told the court that the victim had suffered beyond the actual offense because community opinion had come down on the side of McCarty, who initially denied any wrongdoing.“She lost the respect of the community, her friends turned against her because they wanted to believe him, we have to acknowledge her bravery,” Tieger said.He added that McCarty’s violation of phone rules while being held in Brown County jail demonstrated his lack of respect for rules, “How much has Mr. McCarty really learned?” he asked the court. “If he can’t even follow the rules of a local county jail, will he follow the rules of probation?”The victim’s grandfather addressed the court. “We’re on this earth to protect our children and grandchildren,” he said, “That’s all we got, that’s our legacy.”He pointed out that the DNA evidence and McCarty’s own admission of guilt should preclude probation and asked the court to punish him to the fullest extent, “I beg you to give him what he deserves,” he told the judge. “When he gets out he’s going to do it to someone else’s kid, he’s a manipulator.Prior to sentencing, Judge Gusweiler admonished McCarty, “I’ve read your letters and not a one of them mentioned the victim in this case, and I don’t get that, I don’t get that. She has suffered emotional and psychological injury and turmoil. You held an occupation where you were supposed to protect people from the commission of that very offense. We nurture, we protect, we educate and you violated that trust.”The judge said that because McCarty’s crime was not the worse form of the offense, he was unable to impose the maximum sentence.

NYPD officer at center of Eric Garner choke hold case faces disciplinary trial

first_imgtillsonburg/iStock(NEW YORK) — A week-long departmental trial for Daniel Pantaleo, the New York police officer who put Eric Garner in the unauthorized choke hold that led to his death nearly five years ago on Staten Island, is set to begin this week. Garner’s final words, “I can’t breathe,” became a national rallying cry in protests over issues of race and justice. This is not a criminal proceeding but a matter before an NYPD administrative judge who will weigh whether Pantaleo inappropriately used the maneuver. The judge’s decision goes to Police Commissioner James O’Neill, who will then decide Pantaleo’s fate with the NYPD. The Justice Department declined to pursue a federal civil rights case against Pantaleo, who has been relegated to desk duty these last several years.If Pantaleo is found guilty of violating department rules, he faces penalties ranging from the loss of vacation days to termination. Pantaleo has denied all wrongdoing. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Suspect in mass shooting that killed 5 in South Carolina played in the NFL

first_imgcarlballou/iStockBy William Mansell and Emily Shapiro, ABC News(ROCK HILL, S.C.) — Five people are dead, including a doctor and two of his grandchildren, following a shooting at a home in Rock Hill, South Carolina, on Wednesday afternoon, according to the York County Sheriff’s Office.The suspect, 32-year-old Phillip Adams, was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at a nearby home, the York County Sheriff’s Office said.Adams, a Rock Hill native, was a former NFL player, according to ESPN. He was drafted by San Francisco in the seventh round out of South Carolina State in 2010 and played as a reserve defensive back for five teams in six years from 2010 to 2015.The victims were identified as Dr. Robert Lesslie, 70; his wife, Barbara Lesslie, 69; their grandchildren, 9-year-old Adah Lesslie and 5-year-old Noah Lesslie; and James Lewis, 39, who was working at the home at the time he was shot, authorities said.A sixth person was also shot and survived, officials said.Lewis and the surviving victim — who was in critical condition Thursday morning — were air conditioning techs who were found shot by their work vans, York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson said.Robert Lesslie was a well-known doctor in Rock Hill, ABC Charlotte affiliate WSOC reported. He spent many years working in emergency rooms in the Charlotte area, according to his website biography.The sheriff said, “Dr. Lesslie was a pillar in this community.”“He had treated me in the past,” he said.Robert Lesslie and his wife had four children and five grandchildren, his website biography said.Robert and Barbara Lesslie in a photo posted to Robert Lesslie’s website.The Lesslie family said in a statement, “We are truly in the midst of the unimaginable. The losses we are suffering cannot be uttered at this time.”The family said, “If you would like to do something for the family, Adah and Noah would want you to stock the free pantries and libraries in your community. Barbara and Robert would want you to be good stewards of what you are given, leaving every place better than it was before you got there.”All the deaths are being investigated as homicides, according to the York County Coroner’s Office.The York County Coroner’s Office said Adams was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at a nearby home on the same road as the Lesslies, following a standoff.“We did recover evidence at the scene that linked Mr. Adams to that area definitively,” Tolson said at a news conference Thursday.A motive has not been determined, Tolson said.“There is nothing about this right now that makes sense to any of us,” the sheriff said.Rock Hill is about 26 miles south of Charlotte, North Carolina.South Carolina Rep. Ralph Norman said Robert and Barbara Lesslie were his close friends.“Through the decades, they made such an incredible impact on our area and the lives of countless people,” Norman said in a statement.“It is impossible to imagine the grief that the extended Lesslie family must be feeling,” he said. “I also want to send my sincere condolences to the family of James Lewis.”Joel and Steven Long, co-owners of GSM Services, the company which employed Lewis and the man who was shot and survived, said in a statement, “Our team at GSM Services is heart broken.”“Both men involved in this incident are long-standing, beloved members of our family at GSM. These men embody the values we strive to achieve at GSM and are family focused, up-beat, and wonderful team members who cared about all the people they encountered,” the Longs said. “In the coming days, our focus is on helping these families and our team members cope with this tragedy.”ABC News’ Rachel Katz and Alexandra Faul contributed to this report.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Memorabilia in NCT tell dramatic story

first_imgThe New College Theatre has yet to see its first performance, but already the building seems to echo with audience laughter and the pleasant dissonance of a tuning orchestra. In the lobby, one can almost hear a whisper of “break a leg” or the clink of glasses at a postproduction fête rising faintly from the polished wooden floorboards. More than 100 years of theatrical history live on in the New College Theatre, and a special exhibition now on display throughout the building will help to preserve that legacy.From the lobby to the lower lounge, the brand-new building is awash in posters, rehearsal photographs, audition fliers, and commemorative plaques. The images serve as both décor and exhibit — a visual testimony to more than 100 years of Harvard theater.“These images show how historically important the theater arts have been to Harvard students,” explains Matt Weinberg, special projects consultant for the Office for the Arts (OfA) and curator of the exhibit.The exhibit includes material from the late 1880s to the present, and traces the history of Harvard theater from early Hasty Pudding productions to the current Learning From Performers series produced by the Office for the Arts.“There is such a rich tradition of performance at Harvard,” says Richard Brown ’60, who composed the music for the 1960 Hasty Pudding Show “Run for the Money” and helped select materials for display. “When you walk into this exhibit … it brings the past alive.”In one corner of the lobby, a group of 1947 Pudding actors peer intently at a dressing room mirror as they apply costume makeup for the evening’s show. On another wall, actresses from the 1909 Radcliffe Idler Club enact a scene from “The Merchant of Venice.” Next to the box office door, John Lithgow ’67 takes the stage in a production of Moliere’s “Tartuffe.” Nearby, a group of live horses prance across the Harvard Stadium in a 1906 Class Day production of “Agamemnon” by Aeschylus.“Harvard has a unique theatrical history among the world’s universities, and by means of this exhibition it is possible to give some idea of the many traditions and events that have contributed to this history,” says Fredric Wilson, curator of the Harvard Theatre Collection in the Houghton Library.The blue-green walls of the lobby not only provide a startling backdrop for the display, but also add their own voice to the narrative of Harvard theater. The color used here, “peacock blue,” is the same as the color used for the walls in 1888. Leers Weinzapfel Associates, the architectural firm handling the reconstruction, scraped through layers of old paint to find and reproduce the original hue.The exhibit continues throughout the building. Near the lounge, a silk-screen poster advertises “The Rockets’ Red Blare,” a 1972 pop opera written by James Yannatos, conductor of the Harvard-Radcliffe Orchestra. Near the black box rehearsal space, photographs of stage rehearsals dating back to 1939 remind current students that the tradition of long hours and late nights has very deep roots.A large collection of photographs traces the history of the Learning From Performers series, an initiative that allows undergraduates to work closely with luminaries in the arts. From Neil Simon to the Blue Man Group, the photographs demonstrate Harvard’s commitment to providing learning opportunities for young artists.“The New College Theatre encourages student organizations and groups to achieve the highest level of learning and performance, but it also highlights the connection that Harvard has to the wider theatrical community,” Weinberg says.The Harvard Krokodiloes and the Radcliffe Pitches, two of Harvard’s oldest a cappella groups, are also featured in a special display. Both organizations maintain offices in the New College Theatre. Highlights of the display include an image of the Krokodiloes performing with Ella Fitzgerald, and a copy of an original work by Leonard Bernstein ’39 written specially for the Krokodiloes.Most of the images on display are high-quality reproductions of material found in the Harvard Theatre Collection and the Harvard Archives. Jane Knowles, librarian at the Schlesinger Library, provided images from the Radcliffe College Archives.Officers of the Harvard Krokodiloes, the Harvard-Radcliffe Gilbert and Sullivan Players, the Hasty Pudding Theatricals, and the Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club all contributed original materials or provided counsel on the exhibit.Weinberg, Wilson, and Brown collaborated with a special committee of the Office for the Arts to select the final pieces for display, and Harvard Imaging Services managed the printing process.last_img read more
