Whenever any meat is recovered, it is normally shown as cow meat (beef) without getting it examined or analyzed by the Forensic Laboratory. In most of the cases, meat is not sent for analysis. Accused persons continue in jail for an offence that may not have been committed at all and which is triable by Magistrate Ist Class, having maximum sentence up to 7 years.”Case Title – Sikandar Ali @ Sikandar Abbas v.

Revenue from USC patents nearly triples

first_imgThe amount of money the university received from patent licenses, as well as the number of patents issued to USC, increased substantially from the 2009 to the 2010 fiscal year.Licensing revenue nearly tripled from 2009 to 2010 from around $4.5 million to $12.3 million, while the number of United States patents issued to the university increased from 43 to 58.The USC Stevens Institute for Innovation, which is in charge of managing the university’s intellectual property, attributes the increase in patents and patent revenue to a growing focus on specialization.The Stevens Institute for Innovation has encouraged faculty members to focus their knowledge on particular fields of study, according to Ian Murphy, director of communications for the institute.“Within the past year, we’ve dedicated industry teams, like a life sciences team, in which people who work under that licensing area have a deep background and have commercialized companies and products in that particular field,” Murphy said. “These people are uniquely qualified to work in that certain field because they have the interest and expertise to work on a project for long amounts of time.”Direct methanol fuel cells, which were invented by a USC Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute team and have the capability to generate clean and efficient energy from methanol, are an example of a patent the university added within the last year. The technology has since been licensed out to other institutions, such as SFC Energy Inc., a German manufacturer of methanol fuel cells for automobiles.“Direct methanol fuel technology had been in the works [at USC] for several years and the technology has incredible applications for something like recreational vehicles, because it’s very clean and off the grid,” Murphy said. “The fuel cells would allow you to park your vehicle, and then use these battery-style direct methanol fuel cells to power your kitchen and lights and other thing without hurting the environment.”The Stevens Institute for Innovation also offers services and advice for students wishing to patent their ideas or innovations, Murphy said.“Students wishing to patent their ideas can go to the legal office hours of a patent attorney on campus, which would allow them to consult with an attorney and decide the best way to pursue a particular idea,” Murphy said.The Stevens Institute for Innovation also holds the annual USC Student Innovator Showcase and Competition, where student innovators pitch ideas for new innovations in several different disciplines, such as cinematic arts, information technology and life sciences. The event is designed to encourage student innovation and entrepreneurship.Judges for the showcase award cash prizes to the most innovative and most business-savvy ideas.Sonic Edge, an device that implements ultrasound smart-sensors with disposable surgical tools such as needles, was named most innovative at the 2011 Student Innovator Showcase, held Oct. 28.last_img read more

Alexander: Is Scioscia’s goodbye also a farewell to managing?

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error But he seems to understand the drill. And while he has maintained his daily focus on the task at hand and sidestepped questions asking him to speculate about his future, he did say this to Angels radio broadcaster Terry Smith earlier in the week about whether he wanted to continue managing and specifically managing the Angels:“I’d like to. We’ll continue to evaluate things this week and I’ll speak with Arte and speak with Billy and kind of come to a decision, but I think that if you love something, you want to continue doing it, and if you can, great, and if you can’t, so be it. But I love the dugout.”The gist of Scioscia’s statement, if I interpret it correctly: He wants to stay, understands if the Angels want to make a change, but if they do he wants to manage again somewhere.Related Articles (Bochy, even with three World Series championships on his resume, is in a tenuous position in San Francisco after two straight non-contending seasons. He has another year on his Giants contract.)Meanwhile, according to a survey by USA Today earlier this season, 10 of the big leagues’ 30 managers are paid under $1 million. Three others, including Dave Roberts of the Dodgers and Andy Green of the Padres, are right at $1 million, and the Dodgers still have not picked up Roberts’ option for 2019. The guy who beat Roberts in the World Series last year, Houston’s A.J. Hinch, makes $1.2 million but received a four-year extension from the Astros last month, which probably will come with a decent but not outlandish raise.Take away the top five, and the average salary for a major league manager in 2018 is a shade more than $1.36 million.The bottom line: The manager may still be the day-to-day face of the team, and he may be the one responsible for making sure the clubhouse runs smoothly — and enforcing the rules with guys who, in many cases, make a lot more money than he does. But general managers/presidents of baseball operations now have the power and influence — and, presumably, salaries to match — while avoiding most (but not all) of the second-guessing.This is not to say that Scioscia wouldn’t be willing to step into such a situation. I’m guessing he would, in a minute. I’m just not sure he would get an offer.Ask his old Dodger teammate, Dusty Baker, how that works.The conundrum here is that large numbers of Angel fans have short memories. Scioscia draws a lot of heat from the faithful these days, for the usual reasons: In-game strategy, lineups and matchups, when to take starters out, etc. When you don’t win, those decisions and their cumulative effects stand out more.So it is easy to forget that, when Scioscia arrived in 2000 out of the Dodgers organization, he spurred a change in organizational culture, and in expectations, that exists to this day. That 2002 World Series championship and those five divisional titles in the 2000s didn’t happen by accident.Thus, when the Angels finish their season Sunday, regardless of what you think about Scioscia’s managerial style or strategic decisions or recent performance, he deserves a long, rousing ovation.Consider it a thank you. Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros center_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield The problem with that train of thought? The market for a 60-year-old manager with a lot of experience, a big salary and outsized influence in an organization is drying up.In fact, such managers are dinosaurs. Scioscia, his former lieutenant Joe Maddon with the Cubs and Bruce Bochy with the Giants all made $6 million this year, with Cleveland’s Terry Francona and Baltimore’s Buck Showalter next at $4 million. A Mike Scioscia bobblehead is the giveaway at Angel Stadium Saturday night. If that doesn’t send a message, I don’t know what does.(If the dolls were to be truly realistic, they would depict Scioscia with palms up and a look of bewilderment on his face, as if to say, “What in the world happened to my pitching staff?”)Sunday’s game against the A’s, in the eyes of most of the baseball world, is expected to be Scioscia’s last game as Angels manager. After a 19-year tenure that includes a World Series championship, seven playoff appearances, two Manager of the Year awards and a club record 1,649 victories through Friday, it is anticipated that Scioscia, whose 10-year contract is up with the season finale, will be asked to step aside. That will come in the wake of four straight non-playoff seasons, and three straight in which the Angels have finished 20-plus games back of the division leader.Since Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic first broached the possibility in early August, Scioscia has insisted that no decision had been made but that he would sit down with general manager Billy Eppler and owner Arte Moreno at some point to discuss his future.
