Therefore, if after 31st August, 2020, the instalments are demanded by the bank, the individuals will be in a real struggle and hardship to pay such instalment with no income in hand and that action would directly lead to the infringement of fundamental right of livelihood and dignity enshrined under Article 21 of the Constitution of India” – Tiwari states in his plea.The petitioner has further sought a direction to Union of India and Ministry of Home Affairs & Reserve Bank of India for ensuring that the lending Institutions shall not use any kind of illegal, violent, threatening and harassing methods against borrowers for the recovery loan instalments and in case, such acts are carried out, then strict action be taken against them in accordance with law.Due to financial difficulties, people have been struggling to pay off monthly loan instalments as there is lesser or nil income of the borrowers and legal professionals, due to the closure of the physical hearing in various Courts of the country including the Supreme Court, Tiwari avers in his petition.”In the present time when the functioning of the courts are restricted to the limited working and that is also through online mode only, which is very hard for the professionals/Lawyers it is very difficult to earn the money for the monthly expenses”The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) initially, in its notification had on March 27, granted some relief of suspension of monthly loan instalment for a period of three months and then on May 23, another extension for another 3 months till 31st, August, 2020 was brought by the UOI. However, the closure of the court as per the lockdown notification till 31st August, 2020 without any physical hearing had brought a lot of difficulty for many, he states.Stating that even though some legal professionals who move around in Audis & BMWs is are well established, this privileged section is very less in the fraternity, especially in the lower courts who function on a case-to-case basis. “When the courts do not function, their economic condition, becomes precarious” adds Tiwari.Further to this, the petitioner stipulates the difficulties faced by the Travel, Transport & Hospitality industry due to the pandemic. “All the sectors work has come to a standstill, due to which either the employees are being fired or sent on paid leave. Even the salary is being reduced from 40 to 60 percent” he states.Click Here To Download Petition Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

By Jay Morse & Heidi Radunovich, PhDUniversity of Kentucky [Military Family Programs, 2015 Kentucky Military Family Camps]Wilderness and adventure therapy programs are typically used with adolescents dealing with a range of mental health problems as well as behavioral issues. Faculty from the University of Kentucky, partnered with Perdue University, adapted an existing curriculum (Blue to You; altered and titled Campfire Curriculum) for use with military families, and used existing wilderness and adventure therapy models to design a program aimed at helping teenage children and their service member parents reconnect.In wilderness and adventure therapy programs, action-oriented activities are used to elicit emotion and provide immediate feedback. Programming is specifically designed to encourage self-disclosure. In this camp model, family activities were developed to reconnect military parents and their teenage children through team-building exercises, cooperative problem-solving, utilization of creative coping strategies, communication, and teamwork. Activity facilitators used were from outside the military and held at least a Bachelor’s level degree in areas related to outdoor and experiential education. Mental health professionals with a marriage and family therapy background facilitated group discussions each evening at the end of the day’s activities.A total of 25 military parents and 3 spouses of military parents participated in the study. Ages of parents ranged from 34 to 52 years, and they were predominately married males. The total time in service ranged from 2.5 years to 26.0 years. The total time deployed ranged from 0 to 96 months.Surveys were distributed on the last day of the camp and included 3 open-ended questions/statements related to skills and knowledge gained during the camp experience, and potential application of the camp experience at home. Conventional content analysis techniques were used to analyze the surveys. In the analysis, 4 topics became apparent: (1) The role of communication; (2) Quality time together; (3) Working as a team; and, (4) Parenting.Over 80% of the participants noted that their communication had improved. Participants noted that the time gathered as a group provided members an opportunity to share ideas on how to communicate with family members. Participants also commented that by removing themselves from an environment with daily responsibilities, they were able to spend more time developing these important relationships. Less prevalent themes emerged around team building and how the family functioned better working as a team, as well as how to work with their teenagers. Some participants commented on how they learned about sharing feelings with their children rather than giving orders. Experiencing the difference between family relationships and military command relationships is apparent when the themes of teams and parenting are considered in the context of military families, and has implications for clinical practice. Military members are accustomed to a role of leadership in combat – a situation that requires clear objectives, roles and responsibilities. Teenage children, as they evolve into adults may appreciate a more collaborative role or a role of shared responsibilities as they develop. In practice, it is important to consider the service member’s leadership style in the family, whether working with families that are reintegrating following deployment or not. Furthermore, the curriculum utilized in this study appears to have had a positive impact on family communication and bonding, and wilderness adventure camps may serve as a helpful adjunct to reintegration efforts.References Ashurst, K., Smith, L., Little, C., Frey, L., Werner-Wilson, T., Stephenson, L., & Werner-Wilson, R.

“‘True Crime/Uncovered’ is our first foray into the true crime genre and Condé Nast Entertainment has done a tremendous job telling these stories in a manner that we hope will raise awareness and resonate with our community,” said Vanessa Guthrie, Snap’s partner lead for Snapchat Shows. The premiere episode, “The Deadly Tinder Date,” examines the 2014 case of Warriena Wright, whose whose Tinder date in Australia turned deadly after she fell from a balcony — leaving unresolved the question of whether her death was an accident.Episode two examines the 2009 case of Annie Le, a Yale University graduate student who vanished five days before her wedding before being found murdered. The third episode delves into the 2014 Slender Man case, in which two 12-year-old girls stabbed their friend nearly to death in an effort to please the fictional character Slender Man.“This genre of true crime hadn’t really been explored in mobile, with the intimacy of vertical video,” said Teal Newland, senior VP, marketing and new platforms, Condé Nast Entertainment.“True Crime/Uncovered” isn’t associated with any Condé Nast brand, and “we thought the show was strong enough it didn’t necessarily need an association with a brand,” Newland said. Episodes will appear in the Snapchat Discover tab, and original shows from Snap are featured in a separate tile. Previously released episodes will be available using Snapchat’s Search feature.Condé Nast operates several channels on Snapchat’s Discover platform for Wired, GQ, Self, Teen Vogue and other magazine brands. Newland said “True Crime/Uncovered” — CNE’s first show for the social platform — “is a totally different scope of project.”Regarding Snapchat’s recent redesign, which has sparked a backlash among some users, Newland said it’s too early to see how the change is affecting consumption patters. But, she said, “We were excited as a publisher that with the new design, Discover allows our content to have a more prominent place in the Snapchat ecosystem.” Popular on Variety CNE brought Miller, the host of “True Crime/Uncovered,” on board through a casting call. “We wanted someone who could bring a level of gravitas to the series, but also who was appealing to younger audiences,” said Newland.The series was directed by George Wasgatt and written by Katherine Chan. Snapchat is putting a millennial spin on true crime — its first stab at the genre — in an original nonfiction series from Condé Nast Entertainment.The six-episode crime series, “True Crime/Uncovered,” was produced exclusively for Snapchat by Condé Nast Entertainment. The show explores six different mysterious and horrific crimes, with Snap betting the chilling real-life tales will be a hit across its youth-skewing user base.Each five-minute episode, hosted by actress Samantha Miller, uses digital video footage, interviews, police evidence and other sources to explore the crimes and the human psychology behind them. The first episode will be released on Snapchat at 12 p.m. ET today, with the next two episodes running this Wednesday (March 14) and Friday (March 16). NBCUniversal’s Oxygen cable network is the sponsor for the first three episode; CNE and Snapchat are in the process of signing another sponsor for the final three episodes, which will be announced at a later date. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
