It was a really great experience to learn DT from Aarish Khan given his teaching approach was highly conceptual which laid a strong foundation for the subject. His notes were all comprehensive and he even taught us how to interpret bare provisions from the official IT Act. The key material given by him was the summary books which was very critical for last day revision and a must for a subject like DT.

Paritosh BhandariAIR 38 CA Final, May 201672 in Direct Tax in CA Final80 in Direct and Indirect Tax in IPCC Aarish sir made it a point to clear all the concepts and help us understand tax logically instead of just memorising the deductions. He helped us memorise the Sections and Case Laws in class effortlessly. He was always available to solve doubts and his revision lectures certainly helped before the exams. The materials provided by sir and class notes are excellent and saves the effort to not refer to other books by various authors.

I chose to run the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon to challenge myself as an athlete while contributing to an excellent cause. I am a serious longtime runner, a solid tennis player, and a first-time marathoner. I have run multiple half-marathons in good time and am pleased that the NYC Marathon will be my first full marathon.

This summer, I worked for a judge at an international criminal tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands. WITNESS successfully works with local actors to make films that have been used as significant evidence in the prosecution of war criminals at such tribunals. In doing so, WITNESS not only serves victims and helps to ensure accountability, but also contributes to the development of human rights law.

The marathon will begin near the Folsom Dam at 7 a.m. The course will continue through Orangevale, Citrus Heights, Fair Oaks, Carmichael, and Sacramento, and will conclude at the State Capitol. Folsom-Auburn Road from Folsom Dam Road to Greenback Lane, Folsom Lake Crossing Road from East Natoma Street to Folsom-Auburn Road, and Oak Avenue Parkway from Folsom-Auburn Road to Santa Juanita Avenue will be closed from 3 to 9:30 a.m. For a complete listing of road closures, schedules and courses, visit the CIM website. Detours will be clearly marked.

A trio of researchers in psychology and social behavior and nursing science at the University of California (UC), Irvine--supported by the Social Psychology Program in the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences Directorate--released a paper last year finding that for some individuals, intense exposure to the Boston marathon bombing through media coverage could be associated with more stress symptoms than those who had direct exposure to the attack. Their latest research article, published this month, finds that the likelihood of those symptoms developing also increases with multiple exposures to prior trauma.

The researchers looked at levels of acute stress in Boston and New York residents within a month after the marathon bombing. The Boston residents were much closer to that act of terrorism, but the researchers did not find that proximity necessarily correlated with higher stress levels. According to their report, New Yorkers already had somewhat heightened stress levels, due to their exposure to Superstorm Sandy, 9/11 and the Sandy Hook shooting, making their responses to the Marathon bombing comparable to those of Bostonians.

Major amendments were made to the Delaware General Corporation Law in 1967. A committee was appointed to study the current law and propose revisions. This committee hired Ernest Folk, a professor at the University of North Carolina, to write a report with proposals to amend the law.

The Public Law Center (TPLC) launched the International Legislative Drafting Institute in 1995 in response to increasing global demand for training of legislative drafters. The Institute is a two-week summer program that responds to the worldwide demand on legislative drafters for new laws to support the emergence of free market economies and democratic forms of government. The Institute draws together diverse domestic and international faculty members experienced in the legislative process.

Guest lecturers drawn from among the ranks of legislative drafters, lobbyists, academia, agency personnel, and legislators instruct participants in the preparation of a variety of legislative instruments - bills and resolutions, constitutional amendments, ordinances, appropriations, agency regulations ("subordinate legislation" in many jurisdictions), committee and floor amendments. Lecture topics may include the ethics of drafting, confidentiality, matters of style (gender-neutral language, grammar, and punctuation), agency rulemaking, constitutional revision, international trade agreements, and codification agencies.

Because the brothers offered no obvious clues that could tip off U.S. authorities, they are exactly the kind of recruits that international terrorist groups such as al-Qaida are looking for, according to counterterrorism officials. Since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, U.S. authorities have become far more sophisticated in identifying potential suspects and keeping them out of the U.S., creating a major barrier for terrorist groups trying to enter the country with violent intent.

Malawi Red Cross, a key national humanitarian organisation active for more than 90 years, is at the forefront of disaster risk management in Malawi. Seeing the impact of frequent disasters, Red Cross knew a strengthened disaster risk management system to better facilitate the flow of international assistance would help keep communities safe and save lives.

The project culminated in a report, Legal Preparedness for Regulatory Issues in International Disaster Response, recommending regulations to guide national authorities in requesting, vetting and accepting international humanitarian assistance and clearly outlining the role of the Malawi Red Cross in disaster risk management.

Malawi Red Cross, a national expert on disaster law, further advocated with the government to provide technical support to implement the IDRL report recommendations, and was entrusted by the Government to review the recommendations and support the revision of the Disaster Preparedness Relief Act of 1991.

The revision included provisions on how to request and use international assistance as well as the obligations that have been placed on international actors operating in Malawi. The draft Operations Guidelines were developed as an addendum, to provide regulation on the receipt and coordination of international assistance, responsibilities of assisting international actors, processes involved in the initiation and termination of International Disaster Relief and Initial Recovery Assistance, as well as the legal facilities available for the entry of personnel, goods and equipment, and their use during operations.

On March 27, 146 WIPO Member States adopted by consensus the Singapore Treaty on the Law of Trademarks, concluding four years of work on the revision of the 1994 Trademark Law Treaty (TLT). This article explains why the revision of the TLT was necessary and describes the new features introduced by the Singapore Treaty.

Other aspects requiring revision included the different types of marks covered. The TLT applies only to marks that consist of visible signs, with no provision for the registration of non-visible signs, such as sound marks. There were also procedural problems to be remedied. The treaty has a two-tiered structure, and procedural details are dealt with in the Regulations, the original idea being that those regulations could be amended by a decision of the assembly of the contracting parties. However, the TLT was adopted without providing for an assembly, thus making it impossible to change the regulations after their adoption. Nor does the TLT provide procedures for the recording of trademark licenses, or for relief measures when trademark holders miss time limits. It is essentially these areas to which the Singapore Treaty introduces changes. 041b061a72
