Rejected Custom Night
The debate and votes at the Senate headquarters in Valparaiso,120 km west of Santiago, ran seven hours over-time, drawing to aclose late Wednesday night, amid the tense environment sparked bytrade union demonstrations in favour of the reforms.
Rejected Custom Night
The Senate rejected changes in labour laws including collectivebargaining for inter-business unions and terminating employerrights to replace striking workers if they did not accept anagreement within 15 days of the work stoppage.
Note: Be aware that invalid combinations of schemes and tiles are rejected. For all satellite, hybrid and terrain schemes, you need to use the Aerial Tiles base URL instead of the normal one.
Traffic Tiles and Map Tiles support the other traffic related schemes (normal.traffic.day, normal.traffic.night). In order to properly support the traffic overlay case where you would request a transparent traffic tile from Traffic Tiles and a base tile from Map Tiles, the Map Tiles also support these schemes, in addition to Traffic Tiles supporting them.
Note: For mobile schemes only mobile ppi value can be used, for hi-res schemes only hi-res ppi value can be used. For carnav scheme, satellite.day and normal.day.custom only normal ppi is accepted.
However, a Panamanian government official said in Panama City late Thursday night that the Marcos application had been rejected, the Associated Press reported. The official, who spoke only on condition that he not be identified, said the decision came after a meeting between President Eric Arturo Delvalle and other ranking govenment officials, the AP said.
Marcos, his wife, Imelda, and an entourage of about 40 aides and servants originally had intended to leave for Panama sometime Saturday. No reason was given for moving the departure date up to late Thursday night.
After parliament rejected proposals to negotiate a customs union with the EU, stay in the single market, hold a fresh referendum or revoke Article 50 entirely, it is not at all clear what ministers will do next.
On Wednesday, backbench MPs will once again seize control of the Commons agenda and will likely hold more votes on alternatives to the prime minister's plan. The proposal for a customs union with the EU was defeated by just three votes in Monday's "indicative votes", while a motion calling for another referendum was rejected by just 12. It is possible that one - or both - could receive a majority in the next round, piling pressure on Ms May to agree to implement them.
Stephen Barclay, the Brexit secretary, hinted at this on Monday after MPs rejected all four options proposed in the latest round of "indicative votes". He told the Commons: "If the House were to agree a deal this week it may still be possible to avoid holding European parliamentary elections."
This would become significantly more likely if parliament tried to force her to accept a fresh referendum or a softer Brexit involving a customs union with the EU, given the prime minister has consistently ruled these out.
The STACEE detector is based on the heliostats of the National ThermalSolar Test Facility (NSTTF) located at Sandia National Laboratories inAlbuquerque, New Mexico. Forty-eight of the 212 heliostats in the array are used to reflect Cherenkov light, produced by gamma-ray induced air showers, ontothree identical telescopes located atop a central tower. The telescopes each comprise a 1.9 m diameter secondary mirror and 16photomultiplier tubes (PMTs). The arrival of a cosmic gamma ray gives rise to simultaneous pulses ina subset of the PMTs and this condition is used as a criterion fortriggering the readout of STACEE. Night sky background and other random noise will not producecoincident signals in different channels and can therefore berejected.
Achieving coincidences at a level of less than 10 ns is common inparticle physics experiments and most of the electronics used inSTACEE are capable of this task. The difficulty here is that the geometry of the problem changescontinuously as the source, which is being tracked by the detector,appears to move across the sky due to the rotation of the earth. The gamma-induced air shower produces a burst of Cherenkov photons which arrive at the heliostat field as a plane, oriented such that thenormal is in the direction of the shower axis. Thus each heliostat is hit at a different time depending on the angleof the shower. Light from the heliostats then proceeds to the secondary mirrors andphototubes. The times at which the phototubes fire relative to one another changethroughout the night and these changes must be corrected for in orderto preserve the tight time coincidences.
There is nothing on the market which adequately fulfills our needs sowe have adopted a custom made solution based on an idea of one of us. This is to use a series of flip-flop circuits (a shift register) asa digital pipeline.The basic concept is to feed the shift register serial input with adigital signal made from discriminating the phototube pulse. This digital pulse propagates through the shift register at a rategiven by the clocking speed of the system. It can be followed at any distance by another pulse so its deadtime islimited to the width of a single clock pulse. The pattern of active bits in the shift register at any given momentconstitutes a data word.
As the mark-up moved toward its conclusion, Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) offered an amendment to freeze authorization levels in the bill at current levels because of the growing budget deficit. That was rejected by 8 yes to 23 no votes, with Biggert joining Democrats in opposition to the amendment. Broun offered an amendment to strike the new programs that were authorized in the bill, contending that this would prioritize core research programs at the three agencies. That amendment was also rejected: 9 yes votes to 25 no votes, again almost completely on party lines.
Social policy Men and women Access to employment and working conditions Equal treatment Contract without a fixed term for night-time work between an employer and a pregnant woman, both of whom were unaware of the pregnancy Void on account of the statutory prohibition on night-time work by pregnant women or avoided by the employer on account of a mistake on his part Not permissible
Article 2(1) and (3), read in conjunction with Articles 3(1) and 5(1) of Council Directive 76/207/EEC on the implementation of the principle of equal treatment for men and women as regards access to employment, vocational training and promotion, and working conditions, precludes an employment contract without a fixed term for night-time work entered into by an employer and a pregnant employee, both of whom were unaware of the pregnancy, from being held to be void on account of the statutory prohibition on night-time work which applies, by virtue of national law, during pregnancy and breastfeeding, or from being avoided by the employer on account of a mistake on his part as to the essential personal characteristics of the woman at the time when the contract was concluded.
In the case of a contract without a fixed term, the prohibition on night-time work by pregnant women takes effect only for a limited period in relation to the total length of the contract, and to hold the contract invalid or to avoid it because of the temporary inability of the pregnant employee to perform the night-time work for which she was engaged would be contrary to the objective of protecting such persons pursued by Article 2(3) of the directive and would deprive that provision of its effectiveness.
3 Mrs Habermann-Beltermann, a nurse qualified in the care of the elderly, applied for a post as a night attendant in a home for the aged. For family reasons, she was able to work at night only. An employment contract between Mrs Habermann-Beltermann and the Arbeiterwohlfahrt was signed on 23 March 1992, with effect from 1 April 1992. The contract stipulated that Mrs Habermann-Beltermann was to be assigned night-time work only. She was absent from work because of illness from 29 April to 12 June 1992. A medical certificate dated 29 May 1992 stated that she was pregnant. The pregnancy is said to have begun on 11 March 1992.
(1) It is prohibited to assign to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding overtime or night-time work between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. or work on Sundays or public holidays. The prohibition on working on Sundays and public holidays shall not apply to pregnant or breastfeeding women in domestic employment with a family..."
5 In its order for reference, the national court explains that, in Germany, according to prevailing case-law and legal theory, contravention of a prohibition on night-time work as a rule renders the contract void in accordance with Paragraph 134 of the German Civil Code, which provides that:
"(1) Are the principles laid down by the Court of Justice in its judgment in Case C-177/88 Dekker  ECR I-3941, concerning the interpretation of Council Directive 76/207/EEC of 9 February 1976 (OJ 1976 L 39, p. 40) on the implementation of the principle of equal treatment for men and women as regards access to employment, vocational training and promotion, and working conditions, contained in Article 2(1) of that directive, to be interpreted in such a way that a contract of employment concluded between an employer and a pregnant employee, where both are unaware of the pregnancy, is not rendered invalid by the prohibition on certain work (night-time work) existing by virtue of the pregnancy?
(a) the contract of employment concluded with the pregnant employee being held to be void by reason of the infringement of the prohibition on certain work (night-time work) applying during pregnancy for the protection of pregnant employees;
11 The questions submitted relate to an employment contract for an indefinite period for the performance of night-time work, concluded between an employer and a pregnant employee, both of whom were unaware of the pregnancy. In its questions, the national court seeks essentially to ascertain whether Article 2(1), read in conjunction with Articles 3(1) and 5(1) of the directive, are to be interpreted as precluding such a contract, first, from being held to be void on account of the prohibition on night-time work which applies, by virtue of national law, during pregnancy and breastfeeding and, secondly, from being avoided by the employer on account of a mistake on his part as to the essential personal characteristics of the other party at the time when the contract was concluded. 041b061a72
