Analyst views: What do the New Zealand losses mean for Catlin?

KCS-content Share Show Comments ▼ whatsappcenter_img BEN COHEN | COLLINS STEWART It looks manageable from the annual estimates, so the figures shouldn’t change. It seems like Catlin is heading off questions about the quake before they arrive.NICK JOHNSON | NUMIS SECURITIESThe loss is relatively small scale at 7p per share after tax. Catlin is so far one of the few UK stocks to have published an estimate for the New Zealand earthquake.JOANNA PARSONS | RBSI’m not surprised to see the New Zealand losses going up. It will probably affect Catlin’s figures but I don’t think it will have a fundamental impact.

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. If you want to make serious money from investing in shares, then you need to own at least some companies with big share price growth potential.Massive growth potential in a very profitable industryOne such share, in my opinion, is the boutique asset manager Polar Capital (LSE: POLR). Its 12 autonomous teams run 25 funds, some of which are focussed on the technology industry and have been doing very well during the pandemic. The group aims to recruit best-in-class investment teams and give them the infrastructure to run their funds to outperform the market.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…It has had some success in growing the number of teams under its umbrella. This has fed through to strong growth. There’s no reason why this can’t continue. The business model is very scalable because new investment teams can be easily integrated.The group has net cash of £107m, so is well financed to see out Covid-19. The group is making progress in developing an Asian client base, which should really help it grow assets under management and profits in the future.In difficult economic conditions, the group has maintained its dividend. But I think the major reason to own the shares is for the potential for future share price growth.The undervalued tech share with massive growth potentialI think data solutions company D4T4 (LSE: D4T4) is a potentially undervalued tech share. A price-to-earnings ratio of 20 compares very favourably to other data-focused shares, as well as the broader technology industry.Yet there are more reasons to believe the company, and its share price, can grow. Gross profit margins have been growing and most recently stood at over 60%.The group has no debt, which is a major positive. Especially given that market conditions are challenging and clients are taking longer to sign deals.Once the Covid-19 situation normalises, the board expects to go back to growing the dividend so the shares offer massive growth potential alongside a modest income.I think the focus for the business is investing in future growth.Lastly, digital transformation within organisations, perhaps accelerated by the pandemic, will continue and that will help D4T4 to grow.Going strong and with further to goTeam17 (LSE: TM17), is a gaming company I’ve bought because of its massive growth potential. The gaming market is in favour right now with investors, which should continue. The company has an entrepreneurial founder who still has a significant stake in the company. It has also been growing revenues quickly.Most recently the shares were boosted by an announcement that Team17 had signed a publishing agreement with Tencent Games’ NExT Studios for its game, Crown Trick. The announcement builds on a growing record the developer has with Chinese gaming companies that could be a platform for profitable growth in the future.But the shares have dropped back over the last week or so. This could make them good value right now, even though they’ve had a strong 2020 to date. Andy Ross owns shares in Team17. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Six Nations: Italy 10-63 Ireland

first_imgHistory made: CJ Stander get’s the first ever try bonus in the Six Nations This victory was just the tonic Ireland needed after failing to get off the bus against Scotland in the opening round of the Six Nations. But what a poison pill this will be for Italy after conceding nine tries to a rampant Ireland.We’ve seen Ireland claim the first-ever try bonus in the Six Nations, courtesy of Man of the Match CJ Stander getting three dots to add to Keith Earls’s opener, while substitute Craig Gilroy also nabbed a quick-fire hat-trick himself, in the second half. You name the area, Ireland had dominance and now they head into the fallow week with more spring in their step.Maybe they will have wanted a sterner Test, but Italy boss Conor O’Shea will be glad to have a bit of extra time to consider what he has to do to pump up his teams confidence and competitive levels. This is a result that ran away from them, sticking its tongue out as it headed into the distance.WHAT’S HOT…It’s a bonus – CJ Stander will be the answer to a pub quiz question for the rest of his life after he scored to give his team the first-ever bonus point for scoring four tries in the Six Nations. And Ireland did it with relative ease in the first half. There game was one of pure control. With CJ Stander leading a rampant back-row (with Robbie Henshaw an unofficial member) they had front-foot ball all day long.Celebrations: Jamie Heaslip congratulates young Ringrose for scoringPaddy Jackson – So much has been made of the fact Johnny Sexton – “When will he be back? Is he fit? Are they lost without him?” – but Jackson was controlled and firm. He barked orders all game and was immaculate from the tee. A day he’ll remember for a long time.Irish defence – O’Brien created Gilroy’s try from a dislodged ball as a lovely metaphor of Ireland’s defensive day. For all they were poor at against Scotland – and they were as narrower that an earthworm’s waist at Murrayfield – they were incredibly mean against their hosts. Andy Farrell will be much happier.WHAT’S NOT…Déjà Vu – Italy need discipline and a good set-piece, we can all agree? Well Ireland’s first try came after the play got stuck on a loop. Ireland dominated the scrum, got advantage straight away, as they hit it up. By the third time this happened, Earls had a simple run-in to score.At a loss: Italy skipper Sergio ParisseAwful clearances – Italy, when getting rid of the ball like it was about to explode. And when they did send it, it invariably found one of Ireland’s hungry back three. They needed to find grass or touch, but they instead invited pressure.

Designed originally for construction workers of the railroad connecting Montreux to the Rochers-de-Naye, this modest house was built in 1911 with large stone blocks found in the ground dug for the rail.

The load-bearing walls in the staircase were opened to insert concrete open elements, built on site from molds. Responding to demands of heat and sound insulation, the creation of these concrete openings proved to be a very effective solution. Heat, light and sound passes, allowing the family members to communicate from one floor to another. In addition, these cavities also serve as storage spaces. Save this picture!© Lionel HenriodThe ground floor contains the living room and the kitchen, connected to the garden. The master bedroom is strategically located in the centre of the house and the children occupy the top floor.Save this picture!© Lionel HenriodWith its 80 m2 size, the parental floor is a large open and multifunctional space. The architect does not like single-function spaces. His ideal home is open, with little furniture, with as few doors as possible and discreet built-in cupboards hidden in architectural volumes. The few indispensable sliding doors disappear between walls, leaving thus the space completely open.Save this picture!© Lionel HenriodProject gallerySee allShow lessA Visual Portrait of Neelam Cinema, a Modernist Icon in Le Corbusier’s ChandigarhArticlesPreschool of Aït Ahmed / BC architects & studies + Tommaso BisognoSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Switzerland Houses Manufacturers: horgenglarus, Cappellini, Vitra Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description House ERG / Ralph Germann architectes House ERG / Ralph Germann architectesSave this projectSaveHouse ERG / Ralph Germann architecteslast_img read more

The Nahua community of Tepetzintan, located in the Northeast Highlands of Puebla, had two apparently isolated problems. On one hand, there was a lack of housing appropriate to the location, the climate and the uses and customs of the region. On the other hand, the bamboo growing in the region was considered an obstruction to the corn and coffee plantations for which it was removed from the plots without given any use. How could these two challenges be connected? Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueBased on our visits and dialogues with the community, we proposed a housing project that used the two existing bamboo species of the region to design and build, in a participatory way, a housing exercise that would allow families to have faith in local materials. The project started from getting to know the customs of the families, to understand the site and the constructive systems used and getting to know the way of occupying the territory. Survey cards were a fundamental part of the research process carried out with the inhabitants.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueOnce we had an accurate diagnosis, we created the design of a house that fits the needs of the residents, respecting the main spaces of traditional housing: a living room/altar, a kitchen, porch, bedrooms and a bathroom. The project consisted of strengthening fundamental spaces such as the bathroom, the bedrooms and the kitchen, as well as integrating low-cost ecological technologies for the collection and treatment of water. In addition, basic bioclimatic principles were integrated to make the home comfortable: cross ventilation, interior height and chimneys for hot air exhaust throughout the year.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueBecause the project is governed by the “Social Production of the Habitat”, it was very important to train the community with the appropriate construction technique for the use of bamboo, which ensured three main objectives: the transferring of knowledge, constructive quality and replicability. A total of five technical workshops were given that covered all stages of bamboo management, from forestry to the assembly of structures.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe constructive system used is modular and prefabricated on site, which allows time efficiency on site and proper management of the materials. In addition to the above, reducing the parts to a minimum allows a quicker production.Save this picture!© Erwin JaquezThe construction was carried out by community labour. In addition to adults, women and men, young people from the local high school took part in the process as well. They now train other groups of young people in the nearby communities. The land and bamboo were donated by the people in the community, the stone was obtained from the terrain and the sheets used for the roof are an ecological, thermal and acoustic product based on recycled aluminium. It maintains an appropriate temperature on the interior of the house and avoids the formation of mould, bacteria and humidity.Save this picture!© Erwin JaquezThe project was inaugurated in 2015 with a party where the altar was installed while celebrating the effort of the inhabitants. Since then we have promoted, in collaboration with the community, the use of traditional materials for construction that reduce costs, increase square meters and improve the quality of life in the region. Currently, five years after this first exercise, the community is building the project “Escuela Rural Productiva” (The Rural Productive School) with the same constructive technique and technical knowledge acquired in the training workshops, this being an indicator of having achieved the main objective: to accomplish the credibility among the villagers towards local materials.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueProject gallerySee allShow lessIZUMI Allerød / PAN- PROJECTSSelected ProjectsPedro and Juana Launch their ‘Hórama Rama’ at MoMA PS1Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Tepetzintla, Pue., MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.

Teacher certification aims to attract, retain teachers

first_img By Digital AIM Web Support – December 16, 2020 Previous articleMan charged with sexually assaulting three childrenNext articleHow to plan for your child’s college costs Digital AIM Web Support Twitter Teacher certification aims to attract, retain teachers Pinterest Facebook Twitter An initiative to enhance teacher quality in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico will give teachers a chance to achieve certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Announced in a teleconference Wednesday, it is a partnership among the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, Permian Strategic Partnership and the New Mexico National Board Certified Teacher Network. The call included Peggy Brookins, NBCT president, and CEO of the National Board, Ector County ISD Superintendent Scott Muri, Tracee Bentley, president and CEO of the Permian Strategic Partnership and superintendents from Eastern New Mexico. PSP is the funder. It was moderated by Richard Klein director of communications for the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. A news release said this project will support approximately 5 percent of teachers per year, in each district, to pursue Board-certification, resulting in approximately 700 teachers engaging in the certification process over three years. Many of these teachers will become Board-certified. All participating teachers, even those who go through the certification process but don’t achieve, will improve their practice and have a positive impact on student learning, the release said. Of that 700, Muri said that will include a little over 300 teachers in ECISD over the next three years. Bentley said the grant is a little over $1 million a year to support those 700 teachers. That’s assuming all 700 teachers will complete the certification process, Bentley said. “Every student in this country deserves to have the best possible teacher,” Brookins said. “Of course, every parent wants their child to have an excellent teacher helping their child grow and develop. The goal of this grant is to ensure that all students in the Permian Basin region are taught by an accomplished National Board certified teacher. The grant will help expand and accelerate work we’re focused on … This partnership will allow us to increase the number of nationally board certified teachers in the Basin region. The region will have more than 700 over three years of new teachers participating in this partnership. Close to 100,000 students will be taught in classrooms with National Board certified teachers.” “Community leaders should be excited because our work together will impact real lives and families,” Brookins added. “The National Board sets the standards for what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do.” In Texas, the legislature passed House Bill 3 in 2019. Muri said part of that recognizes the National Board certification for a financial opportunity. “In ECISD, teachers that become National Board certified will earn an additional $3,000 to $9,000 per year for the life of their certificate. The difference between $3,000 and $9,000 depends on the level of poverty of the school in which they work. Once a teacher earns the certificate, they’ll automatically earn between $3,000 and $9,000 every single year for the life of their certificate in Texas,” Muri said. Brookins said the certification lasts five years before it needs to be renewed. In New Mexico, Klein said teachers receive a stipend of about $6,800 each year. Brookins noted that the process to become National Board certified is rigorous. “There are four separate components,” she said. “The process can take anywhere from one to three years in order to submit those initial four components and then two additional years for any components that did not meet the standards …” Klein said the process was built so the teachers have flexibility and with the understanding that they’ve got to balance their work and family life. Bentley said advancing quality education is a top priority for PSP and has been since PSP started. “The PSP seeks to accelerate educational improvements by supporting initiatives that expand and strengthen teacher talent available to Permian students, improve the professional development of educators and leaders, and equip school districts’ leadership with resources and partnerships for enhanced strategic planning, innovation and execution,” Bentley said in a news release. “Children in school today will be joining the workforce of tomorrow and quality education is critical for success. Our schools must have the resources to provide the next generation with access to highly qualified teachers and a robust curriculum. This investment will make it more attractive for teachers to come to and stay in these schools, and we are thrilled to partner with the National Board.” Muri, who is National Board certified himself, said Wednesday’s announcement is a significant opportunity for teachers in the eight districts impacted by Wednesday’s announcement. He said this means that not only school districts but the community through PSP believe so much in education that they are investing deeply in the No. 1 factor that influences student achievement, teachers. “… We are presenting to our teachers today the gold standard; the opportunity for teachers to learn to develop their skill set and to truly make a much more powerful impact upon the lives of the kids that they serve,” he added.center_img Local NewsEducation Facebook Pinterest TAGS  WhatsApp WhatsApplast_img read more

Filed by Mr Tongad, the petition challenges the notice period provided in the notification issued by the Environment Ministry on March 23 wherein a notice period has been provided for the public to send their comments and suggestions on the draft EIA policy. In light of the COVID19 lockdown, an extension notification was passed which had increased the notice period till June 30. However, the Petitioner believes that the said extension is ‘woefully inadequate’ as the COVID cases are still on the rise and restrictions continue to remain in place in major cities. For instance, the Petitioner has highlighted that the postal services in Delhi and Mumbai are still suspended. As per the Petitioner, this would prevent many people from sending their objections to the concerned Ministry. While highlighting that the public has a fundamental right to participate and comment upon public policy, the Petitioner has argued that the fact that the draft policy is only available in English, it adversely affects the meaningful participation of the public in the draft policy. The petition says:’Moreover, the notification is largely inaccessible online as it is only in English and has not been posted prominently on the website of the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change, apart from not having been posted on the websites of various State Pollution Control Boards or any Environment Department websites of any of the States. As a result of this, the members of public have been unable to comment on a substantive notification that completely supersedes and replaces the existing environmental norms.’Therefore, the Petitioner has asked for a direction to be issued to the concerned Ministry to facilitate a fair and meaningful consultation, the notification needs to be translated into all official vernacular languages as given in the Eighth Schedule to the Constitution, and placed at a prominent position on the MoEF & CC website as well as the websites of the Central and State Pollution Control Board and the Environment Ministries of all the States.The Petitioner has further argued that the draft policy has multiple features, such as post-facto clearances, reduction in public consultation time, which needs to be properly addressed by three public at large as it seriously affects their rights. While asking the court to intervene, the Petitioner has said:’The present Petition is being filed to protect the rights of the persons of India to a clean environment and human health and their right to community participation guaranteed to them under Article 21 of the Constitution of India, as well as under the provisions of the EP Act, 1986 and the Regulations thereunder.’Case Title: Vikrant Tongad v.

Last week an FIR was registered against actor and model Milind Soman for running naked on a Goa beach. Mr Soman shared a picture of himself running nude on a beach to mark his 55th birthday. Around the same time, another complaint was filed with the Goa Police against the actor and model Poonam Pandey for shooting an ‘obscene’ video in Goa. On 11.11.2020, the Hon’ble Madhya Pradesh High Court refused to quash that the complaint filed against film and television producer Ekta Kapoor under Sections 284, 298 and 34 of the IPC and Sections 67 and 67-A of the I.T. Act. Sections 292, 293 and 294 of the IPC provide for crimes relating to obscenity. Section 294 makes it an offence to sell, etc., obscene books, Section 293 makes it an offence to sell, etc. obscene objects to young persons and Section 294 provides for offences relating obscene acts and songs. Obscenity is a sine qua non for any of the aforementioned offences. However, the term obscene or obscenity have not been defined in the Indian Penal Code. Since obscenity itself is subjective, there is no clarity as to what is obscene and what is not. The Queen’s Bench Division made the earliest attempt to lay down a test or a guideline to assist in identifying the obscene nature of an act or a thing in The Queen v. Hicklin.[2] The Court was examining whether pamphlet entitled, “The Confessional Unmasked; shewing the depravity of the Romish priesthood, the iniquity of the Confessional, and the questions put to females in confession” was an “obscene” book. The pamphlet consisted of extracts taken from the writing of theologians on the doctrine and discipline of the Romish Church and particularly on the practice of auricular confession. About half of the pamphlet related to controversial questions and the latter half of the pamphlet was alleged to be grossly obscene, as pertaining to impure and filthy acts, words, and ideas. Hicklin was accused of selling the obscene pamphlet. Cockburn, C.J. observed as under in the course of his judgment: “…It is quite clear that the publishing an obscene book is an offence against the law of the land. It is perfectly true, as has been pointed out by Mr Kydd, that there are a great many publications of high repute in the literary productions of this country the tendency of which is immodest, and, if you please, immoral, and possibly there might have been subject-matter for indictment in many of the works which have been referred to. But it is not to be said, cause there are in many standards and established works objectionable passages, that therefore the law is not as alleged on the part of this prosecution, namely, that obscene works are the subject matter of indictment; and I think the test of obscenity is this, whether the tendency of the matter charged as obscenity is to deprave and corrupt those whose minds are open to such immoral influences, and into whose hands are publication of this sort may fall…” This test laid down by Cockburn, C.J. in Hicklin is popularly referred to as the Hicklin Test. It postulated that a publication Has to be judged for obscenity based on isolated passages of a work considered out of context and judged by their apparent influence on most susceptible readers, such as children or weak-minded adults.[3] The United States, however, made a marked departure from the Hicklin test. In Roth v. the United States,[4] the constitutionality of a criminal obscenity statute was in question before The Supreme Court of the United States. Rot conducted business in New York in the publication and sale of books, photographs and magazines. He used circulars and advertising matter to solicit sales. He was convicted by a jury in the District Court for the Southern District of New York upon 4 counts of a 26 counts indictment charging him with mailing obscene circulars and advertising, and an obscene book, in violation of the federal obscenity statute. The conviction was affirmed by the appellate Court. The question which The Supreme Court was called upon to answer was whether obscenity is utterance within the area of protected speech and press. Justice Brennan, who delivered the opinion of the Court, took into consideration the earlier pronouncements and the provisions of The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and ultimately held that obscenity is not within the area of constitutionally protected speech or press.[5] He further observed as under: “18. The early leading standard of obscenity allowed the material to be judged merely by the effect of an isolated except upon particularly susceptible persons. Regina v. Hicklin, (1868) L.R. 3 Q.B. 360. Some American courts adopted this standard, but later decisions have rejected it and substituted this test: whether to the average person, applying contemporary community standards, the dominant theme of the material taken as a whole appeals to prurient interests. The Hicklin test, judging obscenity by the effect of isolated passages upon the most susceptible persons, might well encompass material legitimately treating with sex, and so it must be rejected as unconstitutionally restrictive of the freedoms of speech and press. On the other hand, the substituted standard provides safeguards adequate to withstand the charge of constitutional infirmity.” [Emphasis supplied] Thus, the community standards test, was held by the Supreme Court of the United States to be more appropriate than applying the Hicklin test to determine whether something was obscene or not. The decision in Roth was followed by another decision of the Supreme Court of United States in Jacobellis v. State of Ohio.[6] Nico Jacobellis, manager of a motion picture theatre in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, was convicted on two counts of possessing and exhibiting an obscene film viz. ‘Les Amants’ (‘The Lovers’). It was contended before the Hon’ble Supreme Court that the determination whether particular motion picture, book, or other work of expression is obscene can be treated as a purely factual judgment on which a jury’s verdict is all but conclusive, or that in any event the decision can be left essentially to the lower Courts, with the Supreme Court exercising only a limited review. Justice Brennan considered the aforesaid an observed as under: “3. …The suggestion is appealing, since it would lift from our shoulders a difficult, recurring, and unpleasant task. But we cannot accept it. Such an abnegation of judicial supervision in this field would be inconsistent with our duty to uphold the constitutional guarantees. Since it is only ‘obscenity’ that is excluded from the constitutional protection, the question whether a particular work is obscene necessarily implicates an issue of constitutional law…Such an issue, we think, must ultimately be decided by this Court…” While discussing the proper standard for determining obscenity, Justice Brennan observed that the community standard test laid down in Roth, was ‘not perfect’.[7] But at the same time, he also observed that “…any substitute would raise equally difficult problems…”. Thus, he ultimately adhered to the community standard test. More interesting is the observation of Justice Stewart, who, while concurring, held: “18. It is possible to read the Court’s opinion in Roth v. United States and Albers v. California, 345 U.S. 476, 77 S. Ct. 1304, 1 L.Ed.2d 1498, in a variety of ways. In saying this, I imply no criticism of the Court, which in those cases was faced with the task of trying to define what may be indefinable. I have reached the conclusion, which I think is confirmed at least by negative implication in the Court’s decisions since Roth and Alberts, that under the First and Fourteenth Amendments criminal laws in this area are constitutionally limited to hard-core pornography. I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description; and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that.” Perhaps, Justice Stewart’s non-attempt to define obscenity is more accurate than others’ attempt to define it in an inaccurate manner. A Five-Judges Bench of the Supreme Court of India was called upon to examine whether a book is obscene or not in the matter of Ranjit D. Udeshi v. State of Maharashtra.[8] Udeshi, an owner of a book stall in Mumbai, was prosecuted along with other partners, under section 292 of the IPC for being in possession for the purpose of sale of an obscene book called Lady Chatterley’s Lover. The Court thereafter observed that the Indian Penal Code does not define the word ‘obscene’ and this delicate task of how to distinguish between that which is artistic and that which is obscene has to be performed by Courts, and in the last resort by the Supreme Court. The test which the Supreme Court proposed to evolve was to be of a general character which would admit of a just application from case to case by indicating a line of demarcation not necessarily sharp, but sufficiently distinct to distinguish between that which is obscene and this which is not. Having said so, the Bench also observed that ‘…treating with sex and nudity in art and literature cannot be regarded as evidence of obscenity without something more’.[9] The Court considered the aforementioned English decision in Hicklin and the aforementioned American decision in Roth. The Court observed that the Hicklin Test had been uniformly applied in India.[10] Ultimately, however, the test laid down by the Court in Ranjit D. Udeshi is as under: “22. … In our opinion, the test to adopt in our country (regards being had to our community ‘mores’) is that obscenity without a preponderating social purpose or profit cannot have the constitutional protection of free speech and expression and obscenity is treating with sex in a manner appealing to the carnal side of human nature, or having that tendency. Such a treating with sex is offensive to modesty and decency but the extent of such appeal in a particular book etc., are matters for consideration in each individual case.” The meaning of the term ‘obscene’ came up for consideration before the Supreme Court of India in Shri Chandrakant Kalyandas Kakodkar v. State of Maharashtra and Others[11]. In Kakodkar, the Supreme Court took into consideration the English decision in Hicklin and the Indian decision in Udeshi and held that it was the duty of the Court to consider the obscene matter by taking an overall view of the entire work and to determine whether the obscene passages are so likely to deprave and corrupt those whose minds are open to such influences and in whose hands the book is likely to fall. The law relating to obscenity has not changed too much since Ranjit Udeshi. The tests laid down by the Constitution Bench continued to be applied to individual cases by different Court. However, an important judgment came in the form of Aveek Sarkar v. State of West Bengal[12]. Aveek Sarkar was the editor of the magazine Sports World which had published an article with a picture of Boris Becker, a world-renowned tennis player, posing nude with his dark-skinned fiancée Barbara Feltus, a film actress, but Boris Becker covering his fiancee’s breasts with his hands. The article conveyed a message to the people at large of Boris Becker being a strident protester against the pernicious practice of apartheid. A practising lawyer filed a complaint under Section 292 against Aveek Sarkar. The Supreme Court discussed the decision in Hicklin. It observed as under: “20. The Hicklin test postulated that a publication has to be judged for the obscenity based on isolated passages of a work considered out of context and judged by their apparent influence on most susceptible readers, such as children or weak-minded adults. The United States, however, made a marked departure. Of late, it felt that the Hicklin test is not correct test to apply to judge what is obscenity. In Roth v. United States, the Supreme Court of United States directly deal with the issue of obscenity as an exception to freedom of speech and expression. The Court held that the rejection of “obscenity” was implicit in the First Amendment. Noticing that sex and obscenity were held not to be synonymous with each other, the Court held that only those sex-related materials which had the tendency of “exciting lustful thoughts” were found to be obscene and the same has to be judged from the point of view of an average person by applying contemporary community standards. … 23. We are also of the view that Hicklin test is not the correct test to be applied to determine “what is obscenity”. Section 292 of the Penal Code, of course, uses the expression “lascivious and prurient interests” or its effect. Later, it has also been indicated in the said section of the applicability of the effect and the necessity of taking the items as a whole and on that foundation where such items would tend to deprave and corrupt persons who are likely, having regard to all the relevant circumstances, to read, see or hear the matter contained or embodied in it. We have, therefore, to apply the “community standard test” rather than the “Hicklin test” to determine what is “obscenity”…” The Court also relied on its decision in Bobby Art International v. Om Pal Singh Hoon[13] where it was called upon to deal with the question of obscenity in the context of a film called Bandit Queen. In Bobby Art International the Court pointed out that the so-called objectionable scenes have to be considered in the context of the message that the film was seeking to transmit in respect of social menace of torture and violence against a helpless female child which transformed her into a dreadful dacoit. In other words, the Court looked at the message that the allegedly obscene work sought to convey. Ultimately, the picture of Borris Becker and Barbara Feltus was held to be not obscene. From the aforesaid discussion, one thing is clear: obscenity does not and cannot have a definition which may meet the requirement of each and every case. It has to be examined in a fact-specific manner. The tests laid down by the Courts are mere guidelines. The guidelines themselves are subjective. For instance, a man running naked on a beach to promote the idea of physical fitness may be applauded in metropolitan cities, but a woman expressing her sexuality in an artistic manner may be looked down upon by the very same society. Perhaps the time has come for the law makes to revisit the provisions relating to “obscenity” and amend them in a manner which would be in consonance with the evolving social mores and expanding the scope of speech. After all, as a democracy, it is our duty to promote speech and expression.Views are personal.(Author is a practicing Lawyer at the Supreme Court of India) [1] Judgment and order dated 11.11.2020 in M.Cr.C.No. 28386/2020 [2] (1868) LR 3 QB 360 [3] Per K.S.P.
