XLMedia set for strategic changes after Google rankings demotion

first_img4th February 2020 | By contenteditor Affiliate marketing specialist XLMedia has said it is to accelerate a number of its planned strategic initiatives in response to concerns over Google’s changes to its search algorithm. Marketing & affiliates Tags: Online Gambling Affiliate marketing specialist XLMedia has said it is to accelerate a number of its planned strategic initiatives in response to concerns over Google’s changes to its search algorithm.Last month, XLMedia revealed the move led to a “significant decrease in traffic” on certain websites, which it said in turn is likely to impact its revenue. Google rolled out its new search algorithm update on 13 January.XLMedia said a total of 107 of its websites have been impacted since the initial announcement last month, with 84 of these being tier 3 or 4 sites and the other 23 tier 1 and 2 premium sites.Most of the sites in question are related to online casino, with XLMedia saying that the demotion activity has not impacted other verticals of its business, such as personal finance.XLMedia said while it is continuing to work with Google to understand why some sites have been demoted, with a view to restoring the rankings, it has opted to accelerate certain proposed strategic changes and refocus its activities on the sustainable growth of its publishing assets.The affiliate specialist said this will involve a focus on its core and profitable tier 1 and tier 2 premium sites and a significant reduction in its tier 3 and tier 4 sites and non-core business activities.XLMedia said it will immediately focus on tier 1 and tier 2 premium sites that have been impacted and prioritise efforts in getting these reinstated by Google. It has also begun the process of removing certain sites that are either old legacy sites, or that it believes are not sufficiently compliant with Google guidelines. The company noted certain tier 3 or tier 4 legacy sites may have had a collective negative impact on the ranking of a broader pool of its sites. These sites will now be removed or de-indexed such sites, but XLMedia said that until this process is complete, it will not be possible to be certain the issue will be resolved.In addition, XLMedia has ceased certain activities which, following the closure of the majority of the media activity in March 2019, are no longer regarded as core to the future of the business.In terms of the financial impact of such activities, XLMedia said until the process is complete, it will not be possible to determine the full effect. However, it did say that the demoted tier 1 and 2 sites will see an immediate impact of lost revenues of between $1m (£771,805/€904,498) and $2m for the period.The removal and de-indexing of tier 3 and 4 sites, as well as the reduction in non-core activities, is expected to have an impact of between $3m and $5m for the 2020 financial year.However, XLMedia noted that some of these actions were included within its proposed strategic changes and some of the associate costs budgeted for during the period, which it said will in turn reduce the full impact on earnings.“There is no question that we currently face operational headwinds, but fundamentally, I firmly believe in the underlying quality and sustainability of our business,” XLMedia’s group chief executive Stuart Simms said. “However, I believe it is now time to accelerate a number of strategic measures that will create a short-term drag on revenue growth, but will ultimately strengthen our business by creating a much stronger and more transparent platform from which to grow.“By proactively consolidating – and where necessary culling – our considerable tail of legacy websites and focusing a greater proportion of our efforts on monetising both tier 1 and tier 2 websites in addition to incubating new sites, we will significantly improve the medium-term prospects of the Group.”Simms added: “I feel it’s important to reiterate that we continue to operate a global portfolio of content rich websites that deliver significant value for our users. This expertise remains a core competence for our business which I fully intend to capitalise on as management seeks to both enhance and expand our business over the coming years.”London-listed XLMedia has seen its share price collapse in the last two months – dropping from 70.00p on 13 November to just 25.25p this morning.

How the Lions can beat the All Blacks in the First Test

first_imgWatertight: The Lions need to make sure their defensive game is perfectThe All Blacks have myriad attacking threats, but not allowing Beauden Barrett exploit space running from deep and stopping Sonny Bill Williams getting the ball away in contact will be key to the visitors chances of success.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREPinpoint the All Blacks weaknessesWeaknesses? You can hear Kiwi fans scoff at such impudence but every side has areas that can be probed and prodded, even the All Blacks. Jerome Kaino and Kieran Read have played less than 80 minutes between them since early April, with respective knee and thumb injuries, and however superhuman the duo are, approaching a Test match of this intensity undercooked is not how Steve Hansen would have envisioned his talismen going toe-to-toe with a grizzled Lions back-row.Comeback trail: Kieran Read still has a protective casing around his injured thumbThe other bold pick from Hansen is 20-year-old Reiko Ioane on the wing. Ioane is prodigiously talented, and seriously rapid – just ask Jack Nowell – but he is inexperienced and Owen Farrell and Conor Murray will be testing his big-match temperament with a series of pin-point bombs in the wide channels.Ignore the statistics TAGS: Highlight The Lions have built up a creditable amount of belief with laughably-inadequate preparation time, but if they had a spare time for reading, it would probably be best to ignore factual pieces of work. Everybody is aware the All Blacks haven’t been beaten since 1994 at Eden Park, but they are unbeaten in on home turf since 2009 against South Africa and in 37 games, they’ve only failed to win by 10 points on five occasions. Staggering.Impregnable: Eden Park is a fortress the All Blacks haven’t lost in since 1994When you look at those numbers, a narrow loss could almost be considered a moral victory, though you’d be hard pressed to hear that rhetoric being spouted from the Lions in the coming weeks. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img They are big underdogs, but to stand a chance there are certain facets of the game the Lions need to perfect, if they are to beat the world’s best team Tomorrow evening sees the most eagerly anticipated Test match of 2017 as the British & Irish Lions face off with the All Blacks in their own formidable back yard; Eden Park. While they were derided after a lacklustre, jet-lagged showing against the Provincial Barbarians, the Lions have morphed into a side with a Scrooge-like defence and an increasingly clinical edge, dispatching with New Zealand’s best team, the Crusaders and suffocating a New Zealand Maori team, crammed with All Blacks, stopping both sides from scoring in the second-half.It’s all set-up for an intriguing clash of styles, with two coaches showing a healthy disregard for each other. So can the Lions do it, and achieve their Everest?Set-piece. Set-piece. Set-piece.Okay, so we’re repeating ourselves, but that’s for a reason. If there’ one area the Lions can confidently approach the First Test, it’s in the scrum and lineout. Three Saracens, allied to 19st County Wexford anchor Tadhg Furlong and 116-cap Welsh captain Alun Wyn Jones point to a tight-five that will bow to no pack, and there will be no inferiority complex packing down opposite Joe Moody, Codie Taylor and Owen Franks.Doing the basics: The Lions have a slick lineout and powerful scrummageThe lineout has also functioned at Test-level and if Jamie George can find his jumpers to give the Lions front-foot ball from first-phase, expect Ben Te’o to ‘truck it up’, as the Lions try to dominate field territory and possession.Defensive RonsealIf the Lions are to nullify the most potent attack in world rugby (their average scoreline at Eden Park since last losing there in 1994 is 35-12), there can be no leaks. They will simply have execute the defensive game of their lives. Despite the All Blacks confidently asserting that they’d worked out Andy Farrell’s high-press defensive system, the way it harried ball-carriers at source against the Crusaders and NZ Maori, would have seen furrowed brows in the New Zealand camp.last_img read more

El tribunal también le ordenó a las autoridades dominicanas que auditaran los registros civiles hasta junio de 1929 para determinar, según informa el diario New York Times quien carece de derecho a la ciudadanía.Diciendo que el dictamen del tribunal podría dar lugar a una “tragedia potencial en gran escala”, la resolución del Consejo insta a la Oficina de Relaciones Gubernamentales de la Iglesia a alentar a Estados Unidos y los asociados ecuménicos e interreligiosos de la iglesia a que aboguen a favor de esos dominicanos.  [La resolución] insta también a la Red Episcopal de Política Pública de esa oficina a educar y alertar a los miembros de la Iglesia respecto a ese problema, y a alentar la defensa [de esa causa] dentro de sus iglesias y comunidades.También animaba a la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori a encabezar una delegación que fuera a la República Dominicana, junto con asociados ecuménicos e interreligiosos, a recabar información precisa para luego informar al Consejo.El Rvdmo. Julio Holguín, obispo de la Diócesis [Episcopal] de la República Dominicana le dijo a ENS poco después de darse a conocer el dictamen del tribunal que “el tribunal constitucional ha cometido un gran error con este fallo, señalando que muchos de los afectados eran descendientes de inmigrantes, la mayoría de los cuales vinieron a la República Dominicana por acuerdo de los dos gobiernos —dominicano y haitiano— para trabajar principalmente en el corte de caña.Debe coordinarse la labor sobre la trata de personasEl Consejo aprobó ratificar el compromiso de la 77ª. Convención General de combatir la trata de personas tal como quedo explícito en la Resolución D-042. Lelanda Lee, presidente del Comité Permanente Conjunto de Promoción Social e Interconexión, dijo que había llegado a ser obvio para ese comité que la labor que se necesitaba respecto a ese problema es tan compleja que se precisaba de un comité que la coordinara.La resolución instruía a la Obispa Primada y a la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados a nombrar el comité para el 31 de marzo “a fin de garantizar la implementación, efectiva, concienzuda y cooperativa, de las políticas adoptadas por la 77ª. Convención General”.Lee dijo que la resolución encaja con lo que el comité cree que es su papel de “brindarle esperanza y liderazgo a los que no se encuentra a la mesa”.Nombres de equipos ‘peyorativos o denostativos’En otra resolución auspiciada por el Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Promoción Social e Interconexión, el Consejo se sumó a lo que ya se ha convertido en una campaña nacional que ha llegado hasta la Casa Blanca de convencer al equipo de los Pieles Rojas [Redskins] de Washington de que cambie de nombre.La resolución denuncia el uso de “equipos deportivos con nombres peyorativos o denostativos”, recordándole a la Iglesia su compromiso del pacto bautismal, de luchar por la justicia y la paz entre todos los pueblos y respetar la dignidad de todo ser humano. Los miembros [del Consejo] sostuvieron su llamado a ponerle fin al uso de tales nombres como parte del empeño de la Iglesia, a lo largo de muchos años, en combatir el racismo.La resolución le pide a las organizaciones atléticas en todos los niveles a seguir la política de la Asociación Nacional Atlética Universitaria de penar los programas deportivos universitarios que usen nombres de equipos, imágenes, mascotas y conductas peyorativos o denostativos. Los miembros también le pidieron a las diócesis e iglesias locales que aborden el asunto de los nombres de equipos peyorativos o denostativos si sus equipos deportivos de escuelas y comunidades locales usan tales nombres.La resolución insta también a la Liga Nacional de Fútbol Americano (NFL) a “no permitir que un evento importante de fútbol americano, como el Súper Tazón, tenga lugar en Washington, D.C.”.Terry Star, miembro del Consejo e indoamericano lakota proveniente de Dakota del Norte, le agradeció al Consejo, a través de sus mensajes en Twitter, su preocupación por el uso de tales nombres.“Yo he estado luchando con este problema desde que estaba en la escuela secundaria hace 22 años”, dijo él.Plan de sostenibilidad para la IX ProvinciaEl Consejo convino en una campaña de 18 años que un informe define como “un plan audaz con el valioso objetivo de establecer modelos de misión y ministerio sostenibles y autosuficientes para las diócesis de la IX Provincia”.Martha Gardner, que preside el  Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Misión Mundial del Consejo, dijo que el problema de la sostenibilidad “había estado surgiendo a lo largo de muchos años”.El equipo del proyecto Segunda Marca de la Misión del personal denominacional recomendó el plan al Consejo con la sugerencia de que se concentrara en las diócesis que ya han avanzado en sus gestiones de superar la dependencia del modelo histórico de las subvenciones en bloque de la Iglesia. La Diócesis de la República Dominicana, con su objetivo autodefinido de lograr la autosuficiencia para 1015, será el foco inicial, seguida por la Diócesis de Honduras y luego la de Colombia.En la medida en que cada diócesis alcance la autosuficiencia del programa de subvenciones en bloque, se comprometerá a su vez en trabajar con las otras diócesis para ayudarles a alcanzar el mismo objetivo.“El compromiso general del dinero de la subvención en bloque del presupuesto denominacional se mantendría a fin de proporcionar réditos para esta labor de desarrollo, y para que a la próxima diócesis que le toque en turno se comprometa a fondo en la labor de la autosuficiencia y la sostenibilidad”, dijo el equipo en su informe.El equipo dijo también que tal proyecto a largo plazo exigirá “compromiso, confianza y flexibilidad” según “el panorama y las realidades puedan ajustarse y cambiar a lo largo del tiempo”, lo cual exigiría alguna especie de acuerdo pactado susceptible de renovarse mediante una renegociación periódica.En otros asuntos, el Consejo:*Dio su consentimiento a la selección hecha por el Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Planificación y Disposiciones acerca de la selección de la Diócesis de Texas como el sitio para la celebración de la 79ª. Convención General en 2018.La selección debe ser aprobada también por la 78ª. Convención en Salt Lake City en 2015.El Rdo. Canónigo Michael Barlowe, funcionario ejecutivo de la Iglesia, respondió las preguntas de los miembros respecto a celebrar la convención en una diócesis que históricamente ha estado entre aquellas que dan una pequeña cantidad de sus ingresos al presupuesto denominacional. Él dijo que antes de incluir la diócesis en la lista de posibles lugares, él y la Obispa Primada y la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados hablarían con el obispo Andy Doyle y se impondrían de su “compromiso personal… en conducir la Diócesis de Texas hacia la plena participación en la vida de la Iglesia Episcopal incluido el cumplimiento con sus responsabilidades económicas y de otro tipo”.Ese compromiso, agregó, se reiteró durante las reuniones entre el grupo que selecciona los sitios [de la Convención] y el liderazgo diocesano. “Nos sentimos satisfechos de que hemos explorado esto en detalle”, dijo Barlowe, añadiendo que el Comité Permanente está “encantado” con la “trayectoria” de participación que se le explicó.La Iglesia Episcopal le pide a las diócesis que contribuyan al presupuesto denominacional con el 19 por ciento de sus ingresos anuales. La contribución anual en el presupuesto trienal se basa en el ingreso de la diócesis dos años antes, menos $120.000.En 2013, Texas había prometido un 6,7 por ciento ($463,959 de sus $7,094,500 de ingresos); según información que puede encontrarse aquí, y que debe aprobarse este fin de semana, aparece una promesa para 2014 de $755.338.La última vez que la Convención General se reunió en una diócesis de la VII Provincia fue en 1970, lo cual es un hiato más largo que para cualquier otra provincia, agregó Barlowe.Puede encontrarse aquí más información sobre la selección.* Autorizó gastos hasta de $95.000 para peritaje profesional adicional a fin de ayudar en la revisión y el análisis de futuras acciones relacionadas con el Centro denominacional de la Iglesia Episcopal en Nueva York. La decisión se produjo después de que el Consejo se reuniera en sesión ejecutiva para escuchar un informe de un subcomité suyo que está explorando el asunto.La Resolución D016 de la Convención General, aprobada en julio de 2012, decía que “es la voluntad de esta Convención mudar las oficinas centrales del centro denominacional” de ese edificio.Hace un año, el Consejo recibió un informe que decía que “la misión reconciliadora de Dios se promueve mejor” quedándose en el 815 de la Segunda Avenida en Manhattan y consolidando las operaciones de la DFMS en el centro denominacional de la Iglesia mediante la liberación de más espacio que los 3,5 pisos que ya están alquilados, para  cederlos a inquilinos de afuera. Esta opción favorecería, según el informe, “los mejores intereses de la organización en el orden económico, tanto en lo que respecta al presupuesto como a lo fines de la inversión a largo plazo”.La Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera (DFMS), la entidad corporativa de la Iglesia, alquila actualmente 2,5 pisos al Ad Council, un piso a la Misión Permanente de Haití ante las Naciones Unidas y un piso a la Escuela Internacional Liceo Kennedy [Lyceum Kennedy International School]. El centro denominacional cuenta con 9 pisos de espacio de oficinas.El estudio que hizo el informe comenzó en febrero de 2012, cinco meses antes de que se reuniera la Convención General, cuando el Comité de Finanzas para la Misión del Consejo le pidió a la gerencia de la DFMS que estudiara la posible reubicación del centro denominacional. El Grupo de Supervisión Ejecutiva [Executive Oversight Group] integrado por 10 personas, llevó a cabo el estudio.* Convino en sacar al mercado un espacio de estacionamiento en Austin, Texas, que se compró en 2009 como un sitio posible para reubicar los Archivos de la Iglesia Episcopal. Los archivos se encuentran actualmente en el campus del Seminario del Sudoeste, cerca de Austin. Los ingresos devenidos del espacio de estacionamiento han cubierto el interés del préstamo y han permitido reembolsar algo del capital. La propiedad “no es probable que sea del mayor interés financiero de la Sociedad” pero ha aumentado en valor desde la compra, según explica la resolución.El Consejo aprobó una resolución afín en que solicita que un grupo de trabajo renueve sus empeños a fin de encontrar una ubicación idónea para los Archivos.El resumen de cada resolución aprobada por el Consejo se encuentra aquí. Algunos miembros del consejo enviaron mensajes por Twitter desde la reunión valiéndose del código #ExCoun.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el  Canon I.4 (1) (a). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, además del Obispo Primado y el Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados [que son miembros ex oficio].– La Rda.

The luxury is not concentrated on expensive materials, but on well thought-out details and quality of life by opening the house to the south, with a beautiful view of the surrounding hills and Smartno near Litija in the distance and a view of the existing trees.

Livestock Industry Needs High Quality Soy Protien

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Livestock Industry Needs High Quality Soy Protien Previous articleNFU Changes Position on GMO Labeling to “Voluntary”Next articleHow to Cut Production Costs Without Cutting Yields Gary Truitt SHARE By Gary Truitt – Mar 14, 2016 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Livestock Industry Needs High Quality Soy Protien Livestock Industry Needs High Quality Soy Protien-HATThe population of hogs and chickens in the U.S. is getting larger, and so is their need for high-quality feed. According to soy checkoff-funded research, the number of hogs produced in the U.S. has increased nearly 25 percent since 2003 while broiler production has increased by more than 15 percent. More hogs and chickens mean more opportunities for soybean farmers, but only if they produce high-quality soybean meal.Poultry and livestock farmers depend on high levels of protein and amino acids to maximize their animals’ potential. Soy checkoff farmer-leader Scott Singlestad from Minnesota explains.“Having higher protein and amino acid balances in your soybean meal helps with the livestock industry because that’s what is fed to the animals to get the rate of gain. And by keeping a good high-quality meal out there, it makes their job a lot easier.”One way U.S. soybean farmers can help meet these needs is by asking your seed dealer which varieties produce high-quality meal while still delivering high yield.For more information on the importance of high-quality soybean meal, visit WWW.UNITEDSOYBEAN.ORG.

Bower Market Strategy Report: Get Ready for A Wild Ride

first_img Bower Market Strategy Report: Get Ready for A Wild RideLast week was a good example of what we can expect in the market for the next several months, says Jim Bower. Big moves up and big moves down, “Volatility from here on in is going to be the norm. I don’t think the market is going to be quiet. I don’t think it will be relaxed. I think there is going to be a lot of uncertainty and a lot of up and down.” He added that farmers and investors are going to have to be ready with their strategy.Bower says the wheat market will be especially volatile given the weather in the west and the very low winter wheat acres, “Since last fall, we have not had optimal weather condition in about the western 45% of the winter wheat belt and with acreage at a 109 year low. Any threat to yield will really impact this market.” He said the wheat market is very oversold and anything that threatens yield as the crop comes out of dormancy will spark a big market reaction.For more information, contact Bower Trading at 1-800-533-8045.

OC board to meet

first_img The Odessa College Board of Trustees will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to consider a tax abatement request from Origis Energy for solar projects in Ector County.

In this case a Commissioner would have been appointed by the Minister for the Environment and local councillors would no longer be in a job.Fine Gael and Labour (backed by four independents), Fianna Fail and Sinn Fein (supported by independent Cllr. John Campbell) all brought forward proposals to make budget savings but they couldn’t agree.Eventually it went to a vote. Sinn Fein’s proposals were beaten by 20 votes to five, while Fianna Fail’s proposals were beaten by 16 votes to nine. Fine Gael’s proposals were beaten 14 votes to 11.This meant that nobody’s proposals were passed.Councillors were then back to square one, and in the exact same position they were in at 10am on December 19.But finally at 310am some progress began to be made, as the Fine Gael and Fianna Fail whips finally met in private to discuss their differences.By 4 o clock this morning both parties proposals were only 33k apart, and they eventually came to agreement just after 5am to pass the budget.And the County Manager Seamus Neely then agreed that the broad content of both parties proposals could be accommodated.Fianna Fail Party Whip Ciaran Brogan said his party were pleased with the budget which was eventually passed, but he said lessons must be learnt…[podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/brograw.mp3[/podcast]And Fine Gael Party Whip Barry O Neill said his party where also very happy with the budget, and Cllr O Neill defended the lenght of the meeting, saying there was a very real chance that the council could have folded….[podcast]http://www.highlandradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/oneillraw.mp3[/podcast] Google+ By News Highland – January 8, 2013 Twitter Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry Main Evening News, Sport and Obituaries Tuesday May 25th Pinterest Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan firelast_img read more

As per convention, Justice Malhotra was sharing bench with the Chief Justice of India, on her last working day as SC judge. After the hearing, CJI Bobde and members from the Bar expressed their views regarding Justice Malhotra’s retirement and wished her good luck. After the Ceremonial Bench had finished hearing the case, CJI Bobde stated that the Bench will not rise untill the Bar has had a chance to express their views. Attorney General Venugopal said that Justice Indu Malhotra is one of the best Judges the Court has had. He added, “It’s unfortunate that judges have to retire at age of 65 from the SC Bench, because of all the experience they have and knowledge they have gathered”. “We are sorry as a Bar that Justice Malhotra is retiring after having done human service, specially in the Sabrimala case, where she propounded Constitutional morality, and people were surprised. The integrity she had shown, specially as a women judge, by holding that women between 15 and 50 should not be permitted because if permitted the religious faith of the entire community would be violated”, AG Venugopal said. SCBA President Senior Advocate Vikas Singh stated that it was heartening to see that Justice Malhotra was participating in the hearing and contributing in the hearing even today on her last day as she had read the cases and she was actually associated in the decision making. He stated that its true that Judges shouldn’t retire till 70. “65 is an age when you are at your peak, there is no reason why Judges should retire at 65”, Singh said. Singh further stated that there should be immediate replacement , and another lady Judge should come in immediately. That would be a demand from the Bar. “Justice Malhotra has been an icon. Its remarkable how she has been in the profession, its a huge inspiration for many others. She has been a motivation to the young members of the Bar, the lady members of the Bar. This is one profession which has not been very kind to the lady gender, and the way Justice Malhotra has risen is motivational ” SCBA President Vikas Singh said. Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi stated that his association with Justice Malhotra goes back to being a Junior assisting her father. “Time flies, and some 40 years have gone by, and it doesn’t seem that she is retiring. I think Justice Malhotra is too young to retire. I will welcome Justice Malhotra to the Bar to which she belongs so she can do some arbitration”, Rohatgi said.Advocate Shivaji Jadhav stated that its a great loss to the Bar that Justice Malhotra is retiring. “Justice Malhotra has been very sincere, hardworking and friendly to all advocates and has delivered many leading judgements. I wish her peaceful retired life”, he said.Senior Advocate Narsimha said ” To me its a happy moment, as she is coming back to us. As a lawyer she did exceedingly well. As a Judge, she has made the Bar proud of her. We will have the freedom to talk to her and join her for a cup of tea. We will be inviting her to the Bar and spending lot of time with her” Sr Adv Mohana said that its a proud moment for everyone to be present here. “She is an exemplary example for all women, an exemplary role model for all of us. We are all motivated and inspired from her, how diligent, hardworking and focused she has been. We have learned how to conduct ourselves inside and outside the Court and how to maintain our dignity. Whenever she was there in the Court, there was a satisfaction that our case was heard, even if we win or lose” Mohanna said. “I would like to say in the words of the Father of the Nation: Wherever you are you will always be in our heart.’ : Advocate Vikas Bansal said. Sr Advocate Gopal Sankaranarayanan said that Justice Malhotra is not only an icon for women lawyers, but an example for all of us regardless of gender, because of the grace, the dignity, the patience, the decency and the wisdom she’s brought to the Bench. Chief Justice Bobde, while beginning his address stated the he realises the value of this custom of having a ceremonial bench. Sharing an instance from when Justice Malhotra had argued before him, CJI stated that ” I’ve seen Justice Malhotra appear before me. On one instance, She wouldn’t stop the argument, so i had asked my colleague why isn’t she stopping. I was told she prepares so well that she can’t resist telling everything she knows.” CJI also shared a personal instance, as to how Justice Malhotra has been a role model. ” One day my daughter who is also an advocate said something peculiar in a discussion, and i was wondering where she got it from. Then when i was talking to Justice Malhotra i heard the same thought. That’s when I realised what a great role model she is, that my daughter was making the same arguement that She was making” CJI further stated that ” I do not wish to say anything about her judicial acumen. Her judgements are replete with knowledge firmness, great sense of justice. I don’t know what makes you all think she is coming back to the Bar she will stay with us.” Justice Indu Malhotra, addressed and thanked everyone for their lovely words. “My only message is that I have been blessed to have had an opportunity to serve on the Bench of SC. It has enabled me to contribute to the jurisprudence of this Court. Even if its was a short 3 year tenure, I leave this Court with a great sense of fulfillment.” Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
