Ireland’s budget deficit shrank nearly 40 per cent in January from the same month a year ago as the government used money raised last year to service its debt mountain rather than tapping the exchequer, the finance ministry said.Ireland has pledged to radically reduce its shortfall, from nearly 12 per cent of GDP last year to under a European Union limit of three per cent of GDP by 2015 at the latest, under the terms of its EU/IMF bailout.However the Labour party, likely to form the next coalition government with the Fine Gael party after an election on February 25, said last week that the EU should give Ireland an extra year, until 2016, to bring its deficit into line. Dublin unveiled a record round of cutbacks and tax increases in its 2011 budget last month but the full impact of those adjustments will not be felt until February because the bulk of income tax receipts in January relate to December earnings.Much of the drop in January’s deficit to €483m (£413m) resulted from a €288m reduction in the cost to the exchequer of servicing the national debt.This reduction arose after the government was able to tap funds raised last year to make interest payments. The debt management agency has some €600m in reserve to service the national debt in the early part of this year.Ireland will spend €5bn, or about three per cent of annual economic output, servicing the national debt this year, the Department of Finance said.Tax revenues in January were nearly two per cent higher than a year ago and the government said it was expecting tax revenues to grow by 9.9 per cent for the year as a whole.But analysts were doubtful such a target could be met in the face of weak domestic demand and said a new government may have to squeeze consumers further.“As things currently stand we think it will be a close call as to whether the budgetary targets can be met without further fiscal adjustment in the coming months,” said Alan McQuaid, chief economist with Bloxham Stockbrokers. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeeSaver OrgThousands in United States Found the Device That Can Slash The Electricity BilleSaver OrgB TrendingTake A Look At Rafael Inclán’s Net WorthB TrendingAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorHealth.recetasgetHeart Attack Early Warning Signs and SymptomsHealth.recetasget Wednesday 2 February 2011 1:53 pm alison.lock Share Tags: NULL whatsapp Ireland’s budget deficit narrows in January Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org whatsapp

Marston’s (LSE:MARS) is an owner and operator of UK Pubs. To say that 2020 was a tough year for the business is a bit of an understatement. Its share price crashed by nearly 65% in the first three months as pubs across the country were forced to close their doors to customers. With no pints being served and plenty of expenses still to pay, the company saw its losses surge to nearly £360m. But over the last 12 months, the Marston’s share price has begun rapidly recovering. While it is still trading below pre-pandemic levels, the stock is up more than 170%. Can it make a complete recovery in 2021? And should I be adding this business to my portfolio?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential… Zaven Boyrazian does not own shares in Marstons.

The rising Marston’s share priceHere in the UK, the vaccine rollout has been progressing relatively quickly. In fact, based on the latest figures, almost 50% of the population have had their first dose. That number increases to around 95% for individuals over the age of 50.This has ultimately led to a significant drop in infection rates. So lockdown restrictions have begun to ease. This is especially exciting for pub operators like Marston’s, which can finally start generating income again.As of April 12, the company reopened 70% of its locations. That’s about 700 pubs. But what I find pretty encouraging is that while its locations were closed, the management team decided to make the prudent decision of investing in the expansion of outdoor areas, enabling a larger serving capacity today.What’s more, the company was also able to secure financial waivers on its loans until January 2022. These debts will eventually have to be paid. But in the meantime, it gives the business some breathing space to get things back on track. And with the rest of its locations set to reopen by mid-June, I think the Marston’s share price could make a full recovery by the end of 2021.Some risks to considerCurrent analyst forecasts estimate that the business will suffer a smaller loss of £44m this year and eventually return to profitability in 2022. However, this is based on the assumption that lockdown restrictions are not reintroduced in the future.Last year when restrictions were initially eased, infection rates quickly surged. If this were to repeat itself, pubs will likely once again have to close their doors. Needless to say, this would be bad news for Marston’s and its share price.The bottom lineAs the vaccine rollout continues and lockdown restrictions are lifted, the Marston’s share price looks like it has quite a lot of room for growth as it completes its recovery and beyond. At least, that’s what I think. Even after taking risks surrounding Covid-19 into account, I would consider adding this business to my long-term portfolio.

Photo: Art Babych[Anglican Journal] They’ve been training for weeks. Some are local, others from out of town. They are Lutherans and Anglicans, clergy and laity, young and old. They are the roughly 100 volunteers who help run the complex machine that is Joint Assembly.And whatever their background, they work as one. “We all share the common goal of having every delegate and visitor leave with a positive experience of their time here,” says Jamie Tomlinson, co-chair of the Joint Local Arrangements Committee. He and his colleagues have been planning logistics for a year and a half and met on site for orientation about a month ago.Volunteers meet and greet at the airport and drive delegates to their hotels. They act as ushers, directing attendees around the vast Ottawa Convention Centre, and help them navigate the details of registering and getting access to Wi-Fi. Volunteer stewards help in the Joint Assembly Office, assist at sessions and help prepare for the big banquet. They’re also part of the set-up and take-down crews.Sometimes volunteer work pays off in ways over and above the satisfactions of making a historic convention work smoothly. Sister Anne Keffer, a retired Lutheran deacon from New Hamburg, Ont., reconnected with her old friend Deaconess Aggie Casselman. “I hadn’t seen Aggie since deaconess training in Baltimore in the early 1960s,” she says.Meet Dominique Boucher, an Anglican from Toronto, and Allan Liimatainen, an Ottawa-based Lutheran. They sit together at the registration desk, Dom handling Wi-Fi access, Allan handling registration. “It’s been fantastic,” says Dom. “People are very understanding and never get angry, even when they have struggles with Wi-Fi.” Adds Allan: “The registration has been so well planned that I’ve never had more than [a few] people lining up at one time. People love the venue.”For Lutheran Cathy Kochendorfer, volunteering as an usher was a way to add another dimension to attending Joint Assembly with her husband, Larry, a bishop in Edmonton.Adds usher Maureen Gibson, a retired Bell Canada employee who lives in Ottawa, “It’s a good way of extending the volunteer work I already do for my home parish.”The Rev. Rick Durrett, rector of Ottawa’s Church of the Resurrection and lead usher, greets people as they approach the first imposing escalator in the convention centre. “I felt this was a historic meeting and I wanted to be part of welcoming people to Ottawa,” he says.And welcomed people did feel, thanks to the volunteers. They can be justly proud of their hard work.

Because the Board has potential risk for anything they said, they were inhibited from commenting. From what I’ve heard of the Faculty position from the start and their threats, I believe they’re lucky with this reinstatement. I would hope that people understand the fiduciary responsibility the Board has. They could not give in to the Faculty demands to bypass Seminary bylaws. They can not expect the Board to rubber stamp their unreasonable requests. When they made their first demand and told the Board they had better accept it without change, or they would resign, I have trouble understanding why the Faculty didn’t realize they had essentially resigned.

Jeff Hulet says: New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Press Release Service November 7, 2014 at 9:49 am I absolutely agree. Christopher has hit it right on the nose. November 9, 2014 at 1:50 pm John, thanks for sharing that. If you hadn’t, I would have. There was an Anglican by the name of John Wesley who preached pretty profoundly on the subject of cheap grace, as well. Reconciliation and forgiveness — and, if I may add, ‘forgivenness’ as well — depend of an open confrontation with the truth and the history. (Reconciliation Commission and ++Desmond) I haven’t seen any acknowledgement of this necessity in what I’ve been reading and hearing about the events at GTS. What I am seeing is the same sort of arrogance and lack of concern and respect within the GTS community that were such a problem when I was there 2003 to 2006. I am afraid that unless and until the GTS community, beginning with its leadership, tackles that long history and looks at how it continues to shape present relationships, the future will be one of unforgivenness.AMDG Jeff November 6, 2014 at 4:13 pm The faculty are genuinely lucky here. Their move was truly boneheaded. November 7, 2014 at 2:53 pm This comes from a devoted alumnus of GTS in 1955. So far, everything I have read seems to take a “side” in this polygonal problem. While this is a clarifying “must,” it cannot be a “resolving” matter – only the expression of relief that students are being educated, and some sort of life continues on the Close. Prayers and tears and hope (as yet unfulfilled) have marked my reactions to the anger, both outright and covered carefully with chosen words. Now that “education” has (re)commenced, perhaps an orderly life can be restored. While there is much to be said, I believe, on all sides, everything I have read or heard, comes from the same point and leads back to this same point. My own ministry during the years 1973 through 1995 was “contributed” to congregations. I “earned” my own “keep” in ways that gave me much insight into Christian life. While I consider myself a “liberal” in politics and Biblical criticism, an Anglo-catholic in liturgy, and Jesuit in prayer life, Freud-leaning in psychology and language, a follower of Peter Druker and W. Edmonds Demming in economics, and Winfred Douglas in music, my approach is fundamentally classical, beginning with the period near 1000 BCE.I strongly believe that our very first issue is the theology of the Church. Why do we need Seminary education in the first place? What is the purpose of the Church? What is the purpose of Religion? What is the purpose of a parish? Why do we need clergy? How are the clergy related to the Church? The Diocese? The Parish? The Baptized? The Unbaptized majority?In 1919 the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America became the first “denomination” to require the clergy to retire – at the chosen age of 72. At the same time, the General Convention directed the church, at every level to follow the “generally accepted” methods and practices of “modern” business. This, therefore, fundamentally altered the relationship between a parish and its priest (and added non clergy parish personnel); so also the relationship of the priest to the Bishop/diocese; so the (newly created) Office of the Presiding Bishop. This kind of fundamental change takes a looooong time to be implemented fully. The Church Pension Fund seems to have considered that the “time has come” to implement to the fullest, this dictum of 1919. Now spread out as a full scale financial system The Church Pension GROUP administers insurance, annuities, and health care for the retired clergy – and others! It has become a full-scale personnel institution. The CP Group now assists in “developing” a “path” for the newly ordained (and somewhat younger than recently) clergy. As family needs develop, income must be increased – and there is college for the kids! Sort of each 5 – 7 years the clerics must change the location of ministry – and of course, the income. These (and many others) are significant issues that MUST be dealt with – while “we must be in the world, but not of it” we still need to provide for family and, “promotion” details.When I and several other priests tried to follow the French (especially) “Worker Priest” movement, I and they were either too far in front of where the Episcopal Church was/is, or it just won’t work in the USA, at this time.HOWEVER, the CP Group has adopted the full corporate understanding personnel as its outlook since the middle 1980s. In so doing, we have become transfixed on each parish as its own branch office, serving its own purpose. Small parishes will care for “beginning clergy,” as they continue to learn the system of making each parish a successful example of its place in the diocesan structure. I could go on and on about this but this is the beginning of the “full flower” (for the Church) the clerical person as primarily an administrator of a successful sub-office of the Diocese. Keep the people happy, care for some needy local issues (either well-known, or sublimated under the general adjective “care for the needy.”)The concept of the church as the living Body of Christ is sublimated into local concerns, in preaching, music and programs. BUT THE CONCEPT OF THE CHURCH AS THE MOTIVATING FORCE TO CHANGE THE DIRECTION OF THE NATION/WORLD TO THE GOSPEL MESSAGE HAS VANISHED. Being a priest is being a preacher/teacher for the Baptized so that they can bring the Gospel to work with them (preferably with little or no fanfare) so that the so-called “secular” world can be transformed, that is gone. Worship often becomes an attraction in and of itself – but NOT a self-offering of life lived in Jesus.Yes, the Dean is correct (and so is the Board) that there must be changes; but so also is the faculty correct that the eco-social ethos of modern American Business cannot be the model.A great personal sadness for me has been that the 1979 Book of Common Prayer – even though it was commissioned to be a MISSIONARY ACTION – has become an institution that looks back to a glorious past and tries to rebuild it. I am grateful that THAT cannot happen. We need to evolve into a newer way of – in fact – becoming The Shape of the Liturgy of the first three centuries – the manifest presented to the Commission that produced 1979. That means remembering that when income for the church is simply part of one’s personal generosity, on the par with PBS, that God is not fully involved in this. For us Christians, all we are and all we have is the result of what we have done with the way God made us. Our pledge is NOT how much we shall “find” to give the church this year– our pledge is how much we need to retain for personal use for family needs and retirement purposes and additional education. God is at the center of that operation – we have used what God has made us to be because we KNOW the great Creator God whom we worship and adore because that God became one of us to show us how to live to bring the creation to its fulfillment – justice, equality, sharing, love.

Kris Lewis says: Rector Smithfield, NC Mary Sheeran says: Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Richard Simeone says: Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Peter Carlson says: November 8, 2014 at 2:44 am Roman Catholic colleges have off-campus sites for theological education. They award postgraduate and undergraduate degrees, which means perhaps a small part of tuition will be made up by a raise or new position. Earning a masters in some area of theology is not a get-rich enterprise. For the amount of work EfM requires, graduates deserve academic credit. If little Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama manages to offer classes in several cities in about a three state area with outstanding professors and modest tuition, I imagine the Episcopal Church has the capacity to arrange something similar. I do believe education for lay ministry is essential to the health of the Episcopal Church and our capacity to lead people to Christ;. The Church must rely on lay ministry; so in justice and as a practical matter, it seems ti me it ought to be mindful of the needs and desires of the lay Episcopalians it wishes to attract. Richard P. McDonnell+ says: Emmanuel A.

CHEAP GRACE is the preaching of forgiveness without repentance, Baptism, without CHURCH discipline COMMUNION without confession, CHEAP GRACE is grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living, incarnate resurrected and ascended,THE faculty was betrayed by the Board of Directors. No happy ending. November 7, 2014 at 1:39 pm I agree that theologians and theological education seem to be out-of-touch with where Christianity is today. There seems to be a lack of vision or a refusal to recognize where things are headed. Conflicts like this arise and are dealt with in characteristic isolation from the many contributing factors. Things are not likely to change as a result. The solution will just be a way for everyone to keep doing things the same ineffective way.Church hierarchy, including seminaries, are overseeing a learned clergy that all seem to be vying for a very few plum positions in regional bodies, seminaries, and a limited number of plush suburban congregations. They call these “calls” but we in the pew are left wondering why God calls pastors to only the few and most comfortable places. These Christian organizations, statistically in single digit percentages of the whole of the Church, grow large staffs to do the same work that many congregations perform with only a retired, part-time pastor. This could lead to a “chicken/egg” argument. What came first—the inability to support a pastor or the lack of leadership that led to the inability to support leadership?What is clear is that established methods of training pastors are not working. Where denominations are abandoning mission and ministry, less traditional church leadership is springing up—proving that the changing demographics, often cited as reasons for failure, are just an excuse. Our denomination told our neighborhood church for 20 years that our neighborhood demographics could not support a church. They refused to work with us to find leadership. At last, in 2009, they locked our doors and sued our lay leaders for daring to resist. While we were in court for six years, an independent denomination began meeting in a movie theater a half mile away. Today they are attracting 500 worshipers a Sunday. Same demographics. Different leadership.I suspect this seminary feud is symptomatic of these problems. I am glad that it was publicized. So many conflicts (like ours)— just as vicious and just as polarizing — are often swept under the red church carpets. Clergy and candidates for ministry must leave the ivory-collared towers and meet the 21st century.

Previous coverage is available here.The Board of Trustees, Dean, and Faculty of The General Theological Seminary jointly announce that they have today (Nov. 5) reached an agreement regarding the immediate issues which have led to heated debates within and without the walls of the nation’s oldest Episcopal seminary. The resolution involves an ongoing process of reconciliation, a reinstatement of all of the returning faculty members on a provisional basis, and a re-affirmation of the responsibilities of the Board of Trustees and the Dean. Spokespersons for all involved stated that they supported the resolution and looked forward to implementing together the mission of GTS to educate and form leaders for the changing church in a changing world, as it has successfully done for almost 200 years.

Justice still demands the unconditional reinstatement of the “GTS8” with tenure as appropriate, not “provisional reinstatement,” whatever that may mean. Nonetheless, the resolution is a welcome step forward, and removes a bit of the egg from the faces of the Trustees who have violated their trust to care for GTS and all its stakeholders in a Christian and responsible way. Since the resolution accepting the “resignation” of the GTS8 was unanimous, I call upon the General Convention of 2015 to elect replacements for all the current trustees whom its predecessors have chosen. I also hope that no current alumni-nominated trustee will be re-elected. It’s time for a house-cleaning on the Board of Trustees, and the need is urgent. Fr. E.

Webber says: Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY November 6, 2014 at 7:18 pm It’s surprising how divided are the opinions expressed above. I would have thought it was obvious that long-term tenured faculty do not take such drastic action unless drastically provoked and a Dean who provokes such dissent is obviously incompetent. If the troops rebel, the leader has failed and should resign if he has any concern for the institution at all. The Trustees should be embarrassed to have chosen so poorly but need to take responsibility and try again.

General Seminary board of trustees, dean and faculty reach agreement Rector Shreveport, LA November 6, 2014 at 7:21 pm The largest problem in all of this is that we as a church have not faced the fact that we are using a 19th century model of theological education, and tossing pennies in the wishing well, praying that it will work for a 21st century church. Until we stop thinking of theological education as something reserved for a clerical elite, and start thinking of it as something necessary to be teaching at the congregational level, we will continue to operate under the model that thinks priests are people we hire to do ministry for us, rather than in the priesthood of all believers who have claimed ministry as our life work. Right now the seminaries (and not just of the Episcopal Church) are still operating on the “clerical elite” model, rather than getting out into the congregations and teaching Christians to think theologically.Perhaps we should close the seminaries, and hire the faculty to work in our churches rather than in an ivory tower?

So the following top 10 – admittedly an entirely subjective list – is merely meant to highlight some of our favorites, in no particular order.(Let us know your favorites in the comments after checking out the photos in our gallery.)Diocese of HawaiiHawaii could have gone in several directions with its topper, but the choice of a volcano seems perfect, both to represent this chain of volcanic islands and in recognition of the devastation caused this year by the eruption of Kilauea on the Big Island.Diocese of Rhode IslandFor a diocese with a close connection to the ocean, the sailor’s anchor is an appropriate symbol, though this topper gets most of its points for including illuminated lights.Diocese of IdahoIdaho easily wins the “Put a Bishop Hat on a Local Trademark” sweepstakes, with its Rt. Rev. Potato, and it goes the extra mile by draping a “DSCIPLE” license plate over its topper.Diocese of Los AngelesLos Angeles, too, could have tried any number of approaches to representing its diverse local culture and population, but it stuck with a fun prop, a filmmaking clapperboard that casts the House of Deputies as the star of this General Convention movie. Is “director” Jennings ready for the next take?Diocese of Eastern OregonThe simplicity award goes to Eastern Oregon, for its purple bandana. Sometimes less is more. (Also, hats off to runner-up Diocese of Rochester, for its Genesee Beer trucker’s hat.)Diocese of NevadaThere’s a lot going on here, and who would have doubted the Episcopalians who claim Las Vegas as their own would go all out. The Golden Knights pennant, the royal flush and the #VegasStrong sign make this an odds-on favorite.Dioceses of Missouri and Newark (tie)This is a tie in the “Best Nature Scene” award, with Missouri placing cardinals on life-like flowers and Newark choosing goldfinches. Missouri might get the edge, if only for sneaking in an empty Ted Drewes Frozen Custard cup.Diocese of Fort WorthNot to diminish the work of convention host, Diocese of Texas, but its neighbor Fort Worth took a delicious theme – tacos – and ran with it, with a bit of Episcopal seasoning. “Taco ’bout Love,” says one sign, while another says, “Wanna taco ’bout Jesus.” Yes and yes.Diocese of Western MassachusettsThis topper easily wins the “Most Seussical” award. For those of you still scratching your head, Theodor Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, was from Springfield, Massachusetts.Diocese of SpringfieldFinally, if there was one diocese that had an obvious choice, it was Springfield, and that choice was Abraham Lincoln. So you could say this topper had a rather low degree of difficulty, but the diocese didn’t waver and aced the execution, with a top hat and beard that has this standard looking rather presidential. “Four score and seven more resolutions to go…”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Orange County Jail, Valencia College, and DEO potentially collaboratingFrom the Orange County Corrections Public Information OfficeOrange County District 2 Commissioner Bryan Nelson convened a meeting to explore possible partnerships and collaboration among the jail, Valencia College and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO). The meeting was held May 17th at the Orange County Jail. Along with the Commissioner and his aides, there were several representatives from Corrections and Valencia College there. In attendance from the DEO were Executive Director Cissy Proctor and External Affairs Manager Donna Wright. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity assists the Governor in advancing Florida’s economy by championing the state’s economic development vision and by administering state and federal programs and initiatives to help visitors, citizens, businesses, and communities. The department offers information about workforce programs, community development opportunities, and economic development initiatives and programs.Commissioner Nelson used the jail’s successful construction initiative as a springboard for additional job placement programs. The Construction Program gives offenders real-world skills and job placement assistance upon release. The program operates in partnership with Valencia College, Goodwill Industries, and SunTrust Bank. Valencia College provides tools and equipment and facilitates the course curriculum. Goodwill Industries provides job placement and follow-up after the inmate is released from jail. SunTrust Bank provides financial literacy education for managing the wages that graduates of the program earn.“This program is working well and making a difference,” said Commissioner Nelson. “If we can replicate it in other fields, all the better,” he said. During the visit to jail, attendees had the opportunity to hear from inmates completing the program. All the inmates who spoke applauded the program for giving them hope and the opportunity to turn their lives around. Even better, only 10 percent have been rearrested compared with a national recidivism rate of 56 percent.Joe Battista, Valencia’s Vice President for Global, Professional and Continuing Education said the College is open to exploring additional opportunities to partner. “In addition to construction, the fields of healthcare and hospitality are hot—particularly here in Central Florida,” he said.Cissy Proctor from DEO agreed and expressed appreciation for the visit to Orange County Corrections. “These kinds of experiences truly have the potential to be life-changing for individuals and we 100 percent support such opportunities,” she said.

While addressing the court, Ms Luthra submitted that Priya Ramani concocted a fictitious story against MJ Akbar, and then published it on Twitter without any due care and caution. While beginning her arguments by saying that for some people, reputation is more important than their life, Ms Luthra submitted that Ramani’s Vogue article and subsequent tweets tarnished Akbar’s reputation in the eyes of a common man. ‘What is most offensive is that you make such allegations on a public domain, like Twitter, where I will have no opportunity to defend myself without indulging in mud-slinging’, Ms Luthra argued. Ms Luthra further argued that Ramani didn’t produce any cogent evidence to substantiate her story against Akbar, and hence, failed to discharge her burden under section 105 of the Indian Evidence Act. After reminding the court of the statements given by the prosecution witnesses supporting Akbar’s impeccable reputation, Ms Luthra argued that Ramani’s act of publishing and disseminating her story on both media and social media is per se defamatory. She said: ‘Calling someone a sexual predator is per se defamatory.’ Throughout the course of her arguments Ms Luthra kept on emphasising on her claim that Ramani made allegations against Akbar without any care and caution. While arguing that courts have set really high standards for establishing care and caution, she contended that: ‘Ramani’s selective memory discredits her evidence and her story. She remembers what happened in 1997, but doesn’t remember the article she wrote in 2013. This shows that she wrote that Vogue article and published her tweets with mala fide intention and not in public interest. By this argument, Ms Luthra was trying to counter the argument made by Ms Rebecca John in her final arguments wherein she had said that Ramani’s statements against Akbar can’t amount to defamation as it was made in public interest, to encourage more women to come out and share their stories of harassment. Ms Luthra will continue her arguments tomorrow. Next Story
