Nikhil Chawla, who is the owner of the Chawla Group and ran the Cook Studio platform, which produces cooking-related content, had received notices from Coke Studio owners in connection with the name. He had moved the Delhi High Court against The Coca Cola Company for sending notices asking him to refrain from using the name.

On May 12, Justice Prathiba M Singh had referred the case to the Delhi High Court Mediation and Conciliation Center for resolution. The court has now been told that the parties settled their differences on September 12.

As per the settlement, Chawla agreed to adopt the name Cook Pro 6 instead of Cook Studio for its channels and platforms. He is required to drop use of the Cook Studio name by November 30, as per the agreement. The settlement also states that The Coca Cola Company will not oppose or interfere in any way with Chawla’s use of the Cook Pro 6 trademark and iterations. mark relating to Cook Studio, in accordance with the agreement.

“The court, after reading the terms of the settlement, concluded that it was legal. There were no impediments to registering the settlement. Accordingly, the parties and all others acting for and on their behalf will be bound by the terms of settlement contained above,” Judge Singh said in the order dated September 12.

Chawla had approached the court under section 142 of the Trade Marks Act 1999, which states that a person can apply to the court for a declaration of non-infringement in the event that they receive a notice alleging infringement .

An attorney representing The Coca Cola Company had previously argued in court that the suit would fail because Chawla’s use of the “Cook Studio” trademark would constitute an infringement of its trademark Coke Studio. However, Chawla’s attorney had argued that there was a complete disparity in the logos and color combination of the two brands. The court was also told that the words “cook” and “studio” are generic words.

Chatham-Kent has launched another online contest for residents to come up with unique names for the town’s snowplow fleet.

Residents are asked to name the plows in each of the community’s six wards. Last year, the contest attracted nearly 1,100 submissions.

“We were just trying to have a little fun with winter, and that’s where it all took off,” Mayor Darrin Canniff said. “Residents of Chatham-Kent love the contests and I hope we get a good response again.

Submissions will be open until September 25, after which a committee of volunteers and city employees will narrow the list down to 25 potential names.

The list will then be posted on the municipality’s website for the vote. The 12 names with the most votes will be declared the winners.

Last year’s winners were:

  • Anita Shovel
  • Gordie plow
  • Blizzard of Oz
  • Dark Blader
  • Pillsbury Plowman
  • Zepplin Sledge
  • Buzz Ice Clear
  • Qunuk (Inuit word for snowflake)
  • George Flurrious
  • School is not canceled
  • Snobi One Kenobi
  • Sleepwood

Each plow will be branded with its new name thanks to WINMAR property restoration specialists who once again bear the cost of the program.

The municipality notes that names submitted must be family-friendly and free of discrimination to be eligible.

How Mary’s name is a “bitter sea” for demons https://sgb-sports.com/how-marys-name-is-a-bitter-sea-for-demons/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 07:16:38 +0000 https://sgb-sports.com/how-marys-name-is-a-bitter-sea-for-demons/

The name Mary means “bitter sea”, and Saint Bonaventure saw this meaning as a reference to her role in spiritual warfare.

The Blessed Virgin was called Mary, a name in Hebrew that has a very interesting meaning.

The Hebrew form of Mary is miryam. and some Bible scholars have seen the Hebrew words there tue (bitter) and Yam (sea). This first meaning may refer to the bitter sufferings of Mary on the cross and her many tears of pain.

However, St. Bonaventure believed it referred to Mary’s role in spiritual warfare, as he explains in his Mirror of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

This most holy, sweet, and dignified name suited such a holy, sweet, and dignified virgin perfectly. Because Mary means a bitter sea, star of the sea, the illuminated or illuminating. Mary is interpreted ‘lady.’ Mary is a bitter sea for the demons; for men, she is the star of the sea; for angels she is illuminator, and for all creatures she is lady.

He then continues to develop this point, delving deeper into the meaning of Mary’s name.

Mary is interpreted: “a bitter sea”; it suits perfectly his power against demons. Notice how Mary is a sea, and how she is bitter, and how she is both a sea and bitter. Mary is a sea through the abundant overflow of her graces; and Mary is a bitter sea by submerging the devil. Mary is truly a sea through the superabundant Passion of her Son; Mary is a bitter sea through her power over the devil, in which he is submerged and drowned.

This reflection of Saint Bonaventure, recalling the power of Mary over the demons, has been ratified by many exorcists.

The famous exorcist P. Gabriele Amorth confirmed this reality in his dialogues with the devil, when the devil said to him:I’m more afraid when you say the name of the Madonnabecause I am more humbled to be beaten by a mere creature, than by Him.

Although the name of Mary can be interpreted in many ways, it is interesting to see how a saint saw it in the light of spiritual warfare.

Automotive tech companies launch EV video education platform https://sgb-sports.com/automotive-tech-companies-launch-ev-video-education-platform/ Sun, 11 Sep 2022 20:34:53 +0000 https://sgb-sports.com/automotive-tech-companies-launch-ev-video-education-platform/

Three automotive technology and research companies have teamed up to create electric vehicle videos to help consumers find the right vehicle for their needs.

inSearchX, an advisory and consultancy services organization, says its AskOtto quiz uses AI to scientifically recommend electric vehicle models that match the consumer’s needs and lifestyle. Consumers answer five questions about their vehicle preferences, attitudes and demographics to score each electric vehicle model based on that individual’s predicted ownership satisfaction.

Intuitive Interaction, a video technology company, creates a personalized video based on the generated vehicle recommendations and provides an in-depth review, analysis, and insight into each recommended vehicle. From there, the companies say consumers can activate a “perpetual search” with AskOtto to locate recommended vehicles available for sale nearby. Consumers can connect directly with the associated merchant without sharing any personal contact information.

Strategic Vision, a global consulting and advisory service, then uses its automotive consumer research and vehicle selection data to deliver content solutions based on consumer requirements and needs.

Real Salt Lake stadium has a new name, but some fans say they’ll never stop calling it ‘The RioT’ https://sgb-sports.com/real-salt-lake-stadium-has-a-new-name-but-some-fans-say-theyll-never-stop-calling-it-the-riot/ Sat, 10 Sep 2022 23:03:04 +0000 https://sgb-sports.com/real-salt-lake-stadium-has-a-new-name-but-some-fans-say-theyll-never-stop-calling-it-the-riot/

The venue was known as Rio Tinto Stadium since it opened in October 2008.

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy on Friday, September 9, 2022.

The RioT is no more – finally in official name.

Real Salt Lake Stadium has a new title sponsor – America First Credit Union – and the stadium’s name has changed to America First Field, RSL announced on Saturday.

“RSL and America First Credit Union share many principles, including an ambitious vision, commitment and innovation for our collective community,” RSL President John Kimball said in a statement. “The depth, breadth and length of this naming rights agreement for America First Field is exemplary of this partnership, and we look forward to deepening our shared roots not only in the great state of Utah, but throughout Intermountain West.”

Terms of the agreement were not immediately available.

(Real Salt Lake) The house of Real Salt Lake gets a new name. The former Rio Tinto stadium will now be called America First Field, the team announced on Saturday.

The change raises an immediate question for die-hard RSL fans. Rio Tinto Stadium earned the RioT moniker soon after it opened in 2008, and the moniker became part of fan culture.

Some diehard RSL fans said they didn’t care which company had the official naming rights. For them, it will always be called “The RioT”, and they don’t plan to change the lyrics of the song “Believe” written by Rancid drummer and RSL fan Branden Steineckert.

“I don’t care what the sign says, I will always refer to our stadium as The RioT,” fan Mattey Casey said. “That remains true even if they build a new stadium in downtown SLC one day. And I will always sing ‘Believe’ at kick-off and after every goal the guys score. Some things are permanent.

Steineckert himself addressed this same question in response to a tweet.

“RioT applies to any home or away game,” the batsman wrote. “It’s still a RioT fighting for our club on/off the pitch and the battle anthems begin! We are here for RSL!

Another fan, Kristy Sauter, before the news was officially announced, sympathized with any new company taking over the stadium’s naming rights because, in her mind, there will probably never be another moniker reflecting the new company. .

“I would still call it RioT and I would like to keep the same song,” Sauter said. “I know it’s not fair to whoever has the next name contract, but I can’t imagine any other name being better for this stadium.”

America First has partnered with RSL since the club’s inception in 2005, when it played its home games at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

“We are thrilled to extend our relationship with Real Salt Lake and Major League Soccer by having our name on this elite sports and entertainment venue, and offering the exclusive credit card and debit card of the RSL brand,” said Thayne Shaffer, America First President and CEO.

As part of the expanded partnership, America First will create RSL-branded debit and credit cards that will provide account holders with discounted tickets, concessions and merchandise, as well as special access to events.

There is a practice field about 1.5 miles south of the stadium which is already called America First Field. This is where the Utah Royals FC held their practices before the franchise was sold and moved to Kansas City. This field will now be referred to America First Training Grounds and should receive improvements.

(Real Salt Lake) The home of Real Salt Lake will now be called America First Field.

Rio Tinto will still be a sponsor of the club in the future.

The stadium had Rio Tinto as main sponsor since it opened in October 2008. The deal was due to expire in 2018, but in 2015 was extended until the end of 2020. There have been talks with various local companies – including Visible Supply Chain Management – ​​to take over as naming rights sponsor before the organization eventually partners with AFCU.

What’s in a name? The name of King Charles III loaded history https://sgb-sports.com/whats-in-a-name-the-name-of-king-charles-iii-loaded-history/ Sat, 10 Sep 2022 15:10:00 +0000 https://sgb-sports.com/whats-in-a-name-the-name-of-king-charles-iii-loaded-history/

LONDON (AP) — Britain’s new monarch is called King Charles III — but it wasn’t inevitable.

Charles Philip Arthur George could have chosen another royal name when he ascended the throne following the death of his mother Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday. While the Queen used her first name, her father, King George VI, was called Albert Frederick Arthur George and Bertie by friends and family.

Some observers thought the new king might prefer a different name because of the historical baggage associated with the two previous British monarchs called Charles.

King Charles I is the only British ruler whose reign led to revolution and the temporary abolition of the monarchy.

Political cartoons about world leaders

political cartoons

He ascended the throne in 1625 and his reign saw an escalating power struggle between the crown and Parliament, which sought to limit the king’s powers.

After the King attempted to arrest legislators in the House of Commons in 1642, hostilities erupted into the English Civil War, which ended in victory for Oliver Cromwell’s parliamentary forces. Charles was convicted of high treason and beheaded in 1649 outside the Banqueting House in London, just up Parliament Street.

The son of Charles I spent his youth abroad during the 11 years of Britain’s rule under Cromwell. He ascended the throne when the monarchy was restored in 1660.

He had considerably less power than his father had. The monarch was stripped of the power to make laws without the consent of Parliament. Further reforms over the following decades established that the Crown had to accept the will of the democratically elected Parliament, the basis of Britain’s constitutional monarchy.

The 25-year reign of Charles II saw the return of public entertainment after the austere years under Puritan Cromwell, when theaters were closed and Christmas celebrations banned.

Charles II was nicknamed the “joyful monarch” because of his hedonism and his many romances. The King Charles Spaniel is named after the dog-loving monarch.
