canada goose coats on sale ‘Why did Centre doubt SC’s CAUVERY ORDER When it was crystal clear canada goose coats on sale

Canada Goose sale Centre’s Queries To Court On Cauvery Board Appear To Be Delaying Tactics Canada Goose sale

cheap Canada Goose The Supreme Court has time and again impressed upon the need to resolve buy canada goose jacket the Cauvery water dispute, which affects Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Puducherry, without delay. A three member canada goose uk outlet bench of the apex court issued directions to the Union of India to constitute a tribunal for adjudication of the dispute in Tamil Nadu Cauvery Neerppasana Vilaiporulgal Vivasayigal Nala Urimai Padhugappu Sangam Vs Union of India and others in 1990. cheap Canada Goose

Canada Goose Jackets After the tribunal was constituted and an interim order passed, Karnataka promulgated an ordinance to nullify the effect of the tribunal’s interim order dated June 25, 1991. The President had to seek the opinion of the Supreme Court under Article 143 of the Constitution. In its clarification in 1993, the Supreme Court used strong words against Karnataka saying the state had presumed that Canada Goose Jackets it had superior rights over buy canada goose jacket cheap the Cauvery water and it could deal with it in any manner. The canada goose ordinance issued by it was against the basic tenets of the rule of law and that it amounted to taking law into its own hands canada goose uk shop and an invitation to lawlessness and anarchy. It forebodes evil consequences to the federal structure under the Constitution, it said. Canada Goose Jackets

canada goose coats After the Tribunal’s final award on February 5, 2007, it was challenged by all three states. The Supreme Court again condemned Canada Goose Outlet Karnataka in the 2016 judgment, and said: “Unfortunately, Karnataka is flouting the order and, in fact, creating a situation where the majesty of law is dented” canada goose coats

canada goose deals By its final order dated February 16, 2018, the court directed the Centre to frame a scheme keeping in view that the purpose of framing a scheme is exclusively for implementation of the award. But a day before the expiry of the six week time, the Centre knocked at the doors of the Supreme Court with an application to clarify whether it was open to frame the scheme and to modify the composition of the board. The only ground raised in the clarification application is divergent views expressed by state governments. canada goose deals

canada goose store The Supreme Court had entrusted the Centre with the task of framing a scheme, but without canada goose clearance performing the obligation, the Centre filed the clarification application. It has not explained why creation of a centrally managed board with representatives from all three states and Puducherry is not legally and factually possible. The very filing of the uk canada goose application appears to be a delaying tactic. There is something more than what meets the eye. canada goose store

canada goose black friday sale On September 30, 2016, the Supreme Court inquired Canada Goose online then attorney general about the constitution of the Cauvery Management Board to which he responded that it would be constituted on canada goose store or before canada goose black friday sale October 4, 2016. On October 3, 2016, he prayed for recall/review of earlier orders. It is a million dollar question as to why the Centre, which agreed to constitute a board, had to back out within two days and file such an application to recall earlier orders. canada goose black friday sale

Canada Goose Outlet During the final hearing of the appeals, the court said: “The purpose of framing the scheme is exclusively for implementation of the award It needs no special emphasis to state that the purpose of Section 6A is canada goose factory sale to act in the manner in canada goose coats which the award determines the allocation and decides the dispute with regard to the allocation canada goose clearance sale or sharing of water. Keeping that in cheap canada goose uk view, we direct that a scheme shall be framed by the central government within a span of six weeks from canada goose coats on sale today” Canada Goose Outlet

canada goose clearance It is, therefore, clear jacket that by the categorical finding, the issue raised by the Centre, praying to review and recall the order dated September 20, 2016 to set up a Cauvery Management Board has been finally determined and there is absolutely no scope for re opening. Such an exercise by the Centre would be contrary to the doctrine of finality of orders. canada goose clearance

buy canada goose jacket cheap In ‘N Nagabhushana Vs State of https://www.canadagooseoutletstore.co.uk Karnataka’, the Supreme Court said: “The principle of finality of litigation is based uk canada goose outlet on high principles of public policy. In the absence of such a principle, great oppression might result under the colour and pretend of law in as much as there will be no end of canada goose uk black friday litigation and a rich and malicious litigant will succeed in infinitely vexing his opponent by repetitive suits and action.” buy canada goose jacket cheap

Canada Goose online The prayer in clarification petition filed by the Centre suggests that in reality it wants a review of the final order passed by the Supreme Court. It is pertinent to note none of the state governments, which were parties to the apex court’s judgment, has filed any application to review the court’s direction. In fact, the Centre is not a party Canada Goose Parka to the final award passed by Cauvery Water Dispute Tribunal. Canada Goose online

canada goose clearance sale In 1990, the Supreme Court said that canadian goose jacket as the guardian of Canada Goose Online the interest of the people in all the states, the Centre must take steps to set constitutional machinery in motion to avoid feelings of bitterness among people of different cheap Canada Goose states. One hopes that the Centre would Canada Goose Coats On Sale fulfill Canada Goose sale the said confidence reposed in it canada goose clearance sale.

If played for laughs, the character may wind up being picked

Dumpster dives tend to show up three ways in fiction. The first is the homeless person going in to get leftover food, usable items, or metal goods like pop cans to sell for money. The second is average characters going in because they dropped something and have to retrieve it. Crime shows are the prime source of the third, which is going in to get evidence, weapons or even a body. Often leads to finding a MacGuffin or Plot Coupon. If played for laughs, the character may wind up being picked up with the trash and carried away. The aftermath often involves complaints about the smell, which sometimes even several showers can’t remove.

It provided them with a way to travel, a source of irrigation and drinking water, and plentiful food. But the construction of a huge megaproject, the Urra Dam, shattered this fragile ecosystem. Built in 2000 by a consortium of foreign companies and supported by wealthy local landowners, the dam flooded over 7400 hectares of indigenous occupied land, engulfing crops, homes and scared sites, and displaced over 2800 people. The impact was devastating. The local fish population, unable to swim upriver to spawn, died out, eliminating the primary protein source. Severe flooding and drought caused by the river’s new course impeded traditional farming methods. As a result, tens of thousands of people were at risk of extreme hunger and starvation. Jamison Pitalua was among the people displaced by the dam. He is now a member of the Association for Community Development of the Cienaga Grande, a local community based organization working alongside farmers and fisherfolk to rebuild their livelihoods. To defend what they call an “alternative rural development,” this organization uses proven local traditional practices to conserve the remaining natural resources.

Mir Focused on Carwin, but Lesnar rematch is Big Picture

It is no secret that UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and contender Frank Mir have a bitter relationship, to say the least. However, Mir will have to get through heavyweight powerhouse Shane Carwin (11-0) at UFC 111 before he can enact his dream of regaining the undisputed heavyweight title from Lesnar.

Frank Mir

On Saturday, Mir will have the chance to guarantee himself the next shot at Lesnar with a win over Carwin in a bout, scheduled for five rounds, for the interim heavyweight championship. The fight is scheduled as the co-main event of the evening at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

Fighting out of Las Vegas, Nev., Mir is a former UFC heavyweight and interim heavyweight champion. Mir, a black belt in kenpo karate and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, currently trains with Team Sityodtong in Boston, Massa., under owner and head trainer Mark DellaGrotte. He earned his black belt in BJJ under Ricardo Pires after only five years of training.

Currently holding a professional MMA record of 13-4,A�Mir is an accomplished grappler and renowned submission artist whose standup has drastically improved with each appearance in the octagon. He is the 2007 NAGA absolute division champion. Of his 13 victories, eight have come by way of submission.

After winning the UFC championship in a match with Tim Sylvia at UFC 48 in 2004, at the age of 25, Mir faced a potentially career ending injury. He was left with a broken femur and torn ligaments in his knee after a motorcycle accident, and was told that he may never walk again, let alone fight. Mir was stripped of his title after 14 months.

In 2006, nearly 2 years later, Mir returned to the octagon. In 2008, Mir shocked the world by submitting rising star Brock Lesnar in the first round at UFC 81, in a match in which he was clearly outsized and not favored to win.

Mir vs. Lesnar I - UFC 81

After running through Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for the interim heavyweight championship at UFC 92, Mir faced Lesnar in a rematch for the undisputed heavyweight championship in the main event of UFC 100.

Lesnar, a NCAA national champion wrestler, took Mir down with ease in the first round and smothered him, landing effective ground-and-pound. In the second round Mir landed a left elbow followed by a flying knee that rocked Lesnar, but he gave up the takedown in doing so. Lesnar continued to land brutal ground-and-pound from the top position until the match was stopped at 1:48 into the second round via TKO.

In the co-main event of UFC 107, Mir faced off with muay thai and kickboxing ace Cheick Kongo. Mir beat Kongo at his own game, dropping him with a lead left hook less than a minute into the fight. Mir then locked in a guillotine and choked Kongo unconscious, ending the fight at just 1:12 into the first round.

Carwin, a NCAA division II national champion wrestler and boxer with incredible knockout power, presents a huge challenge to Mir. In Carwin’s 11-fight MMA career, he has earned six victories via knockout or TKO and 11 first round stoppages.

With all of his losses coming by way of TKO, Mir is not known for his ability to take a punch, especially while fighting off of his back. Carwin’s wrestling background and powerful punches could prove dangerous to Mir. However, Mir’s submission game will present a threat to Carwin should the fight go to the ground, and Mir is perhaps the more technically sound striker. Mir recently stated that he believes that Carwin is a more dangerous version of Lesnar.

Carwin showed a good chin in his last fight against Gabriel Gonzaga and was able to get off of his back in a matter of seconds. With his 11 career fights lasting just over 12 minutes, it will be difficult for Mir to study Carwin for weaknesses, so he will likely stick to his normal training regimen.

Countdown to UFC 111

Alvan, Preparing Gonzaga for UFC Live

World-class trainer and manager Marco Alvan has helped develop some of the MMA world’s most talented fighters. A�Alvan, the head instructor for Team Link BJJ in Ludlow, Massa., is currently training heavyweight Gabriel “Napao” Gonzaga (11-4) for his upcoming fight at UFC Live: Vera vs. Jones.

Gonzaga and Alvan

A successful MMA fighter and grappler in his own right, Alvan began training in Judo in 1981 at just eight years old. A�At the age of 15, he began training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Master Jorge Pina Barbosa. A�Barbosa brought Alvan to the original Gracie Barra school in Alvan’s hometown of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Alvan began training under Master Carlos Gracie Jr. at Barra Gracie, where he shared the mat with Renzo, Ryan and Ralph Gracie at the same time as they were developing their BJJ skills. A�He ended his training at Gracie Barra, after receiving his blue belt, and joined the Brazilian army at the age of 19.

Master Carlos Augusto, a fourth-degree BJJ black belt under Master Reylson Gracie, soon opened up a gym in the town that Alvan had relocated to. A�Alvan began training at the gym and earned his black belt under Augusto. Alvan taught BJJ in the Brazilian army for seven years.

In 2001, Alvan came to America to help Augusto at his affiliate in California, but he soon decided to relocate to Massachusetts, where he had family. A�He had trouble finding a job as a BJJ instructor at first due to location and language barriers, but eventually established a large enough student base to found his own academy and fight team, Marco Alvan BJJ.

Alvan at the NY International BJJ Open

The team changed its name to Link BJJ with the addition of Gonzaga in 2006. A�Team Link is now host to many notable MMA fighters and grapplers, including Gonzaga, UFC welterweight Ricardo Funch (7-1), former WEC middleweight champion Paulo Filho (19-1), World Fighting League and XCFL light-heavyweight champion Alexandre Moreno (10-2), heavyweight Brian Olsen (9-1) and many other developing fighters. A�UFC light-heavyweight Thiago Silva was formerly managed by Alvan and trained at Team Link.

In addition to being a distinguished MMA team, Link BJJ holds many achievements in grappling competition. A�Team Link has won the title of North American Grappling Association (NAGA) New England overall team champion for six consecutive years. A�Alvan holds many individual accomplishments in grappling as well.

On Feb. 4, 2006, Alvan was named Brazilian jiu-jitsu instructor of the year (2005), and inducted into the U.S.A. Martial Arts Hall of Fame. A�In 2009, he placed first in the black belt division of the New York International Open Championship hosted by the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF). A�Alvan also holds a purple belt in Judo.

Alvan was scheduled to meet UFC veteran and TUF season four contestant Jorge Rivera in a 10-minute NAGA no-gi superfight on Feb. 6, but the grappling match was postponed due to Rivera’s upcoming fight with Nate Quarry at UFC Fight Night 21. A�Alvan has a background competing in MMA as well, going 3-1 in professional competitions in both Brazil and America before retiring.

Paulo Filho is expected to meet Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard in a non-title fight at Bellator Fighting Championships 19 on May 20.

Ricardo Funch was scheduled to face Matt Riddle at UFC 111, but was forced out of the fight due to a foot laceration.

Gabriel Gonzaga will meet Junior Dos Santos in the co-main event of UFC Live: Vera vs. Jones Sunday night. The event will air live on Versus at 9 p.m. EST.

Fighters Shine at Strikeforce, Team Continues to Gain Credibility

Strikeforce: Miami saw a nice reception in the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla. The Showtime spectacular featured many up-and-coming fighters, but one team, and one particular fighter, is standing out.

Rated as the number one grappling competition team in Florida since 2000, and, according to UFC commentator Joe Rogan, a�?the best MMA camp in the country,a�? American Top Team (ATT) continues to grow.

American Top Team Facilities. Image Courtesy of ATTAltitude.com

American Top Team Facilities

With a headquarters in Coconut Creek, Fla., ATT has over 1,000 members, including names like Jorge Santiago, Hector Lombard, Kimbo Slice, Mike Brown and former professional wrestler, Bobby Lashley. To top it all off, the team is built around a core group of instructors with impressive resumes a�� a defining factor in the notoriety and credibility of ATT.

Founded by former Brazilian Top Team members Ricardo Liborio and Marcus Silveira, and financed/oversaw by Dan Lambert (a hotel executive), ATT built a 20,000-foot headquarters, and has expanded to 20 franchises and affiliate gyms. Liborio, a NAGA Grappling hall-of-famer, remains the Head Instructor. He is backed by 1976 Olympic Gold Medal boxer, Howard Davis Jr. (Head Boxing Coach), Strength and Conditioning coach Stefane Davis, who has a masters degree in Strength and Conditioning Preparation of Elite Athletes, and BJJ instructors Jonatas Gurgel and Marcos Da Matta.

Da Matta, along with Lashley and two other competitors were recently sent to Strikeforce: Miami to compete.

In the undercard, two welterweights from ATT competed, splitting 1-1. Sabah Homasi (2-1-0) was defeated for the first time by John Kelly via submission on a rear naked choke in the second round (2:48).

Also in welterweight action was Hayder Hassan (3-1-0), who handed Ryan Keenan his first professional loss with a technical knockout in the second round (2:42). All three of Hassana��s victories have come by technical knockout, showing his fine ability to pummel his opponents with his hands.

In featherweight action, Da Matta, who was undefeated prior to the event, fell to Pablo Alfonso, submitting to a straight armbar in the first round (1:47). Da Matta was able to bring the fight to the ground, but was quickly put in the defensive, where Alfonso moved from a guillotine choke to the armbar that decided Da Mattaa��s fate.

Finally, and most notably, Bobby Lashley competed in the heavyweight main card event, squaring off against Wes Sims, who was most recently featured on the television series The Ultimate Fighter. Lashley (5-0) remains undefeated after taking Sims out with a technical knockout in the first round (2:06). The fight was stopped after Lashley put Sims in the defensive and delivered a round of blows.YouTube Preview Image
