Formidable cutoffs

first_imgIt was standard thinking of the yesteryears that a degree is one’s ticket to a job. But in these rapidly changing times, a degree is not necessarily a testimony of education, nor is it a certain means to get a job. Learning at higher levels is pursued largely as a social affair as those who enroll are the ones who can afford it, most others drop out. The economic aspect of learning at higher levels is increasingly being disconnected from its intended outcome. People applying for jobs are in proportion much greater than the number of jobs actually available. With colleges continually raising their standards of academic expectation with regard to entry-level marks, the quantum of excellence thus assessed is far greater than the avenues available to absorb them. University of Delhi releasing its 8th cut-off list only tells this story all over again. The nationally renowned Hindu college, for instance, pegs the score at 97.62 for Economics, one of the most sought-after courses at this university. For Hindu college, General category students who could not manage the overall minimum score of 97.62 per cent are ineligible to qualify for admission in the flagship institution. It is reported that 63.9 per cent seats are reserved for the economically weaker section and 52.2 per cent seats for Scheduled Tribes are still lying vacant. It goes without saying that for excellence to be displayed at a certain level, adequate preparations must be made at all levels preceding it so as to lend value to such systems. But quite the reverse actually happens. School education is still awaiting reforms and improvements and popular colleges are left with no choice but to keep up with their limited capacity by raising cut-offs to allow only the top-most scorers. Surely, making education learning-based and making learning relatable at all levels will effectively address the nagging problem of unemployment of contemporary times.last_img read more

Modi govt most corrupt its track record abysmal Chavan

first_imgMumbai: Senior Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan has lambasted the Narendra Modi government, calling it the “most corrupt” in the history of India, and said its performance has been “abysmal and deplorable”. He also accused the BJP-led dispensation of misusing the sedition law, and said the Congress wants to differentiate between the anti-national acts and opposition to the government. Chavan claimed there was fear among people now that if Modi, who has “dictatorial tendencies”, continued to be in power, the Indian democracy would be in trouble. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details In an interview to PTI, the former Maharashtra chief minister said in 2014, Modi had promised a corruption-free government. “In 2014, Modi emerged as the winner even before the campaign started. There were several corruption allegations against UPA-II, which people believed. Many of the allegations were fabricated. We could not effectively defend ourself. The Anna Hazare movement also created an atmosphere against us. Modi’s corruption-free government promise was very important as many people voted him to power for that,” Chavan said.

Modi’s government is the most corrupt in the history of India,” he alleged. Chavan said, “People have now realised that these people had lied to them by giving promises which they had no intention of fulfilling. The former Union minister charged that Modi launched a surgical strike on Indian economy through demonetisation. “Performance of Modi is the agenda of the campaign this time. But, he has no answers on the development promises. Instead, he has shifted the focus on national security and wrong propaganda about the Congress and other opposition parties,” Chavan said. “Post-Pulwama, lot of counter-narratives are floating around. Congress party will ask him questions about anything and everything. It is the right of the opposition to answer questions. The job of the opposition is to oppose, expose and depose the government,” he said. Chavan said he expected the Congress-NCP to do better in this election as compared to the 2014 tally of two (Congress) and four (NCP) seats in the Lok Sabha polls in Maharashtra. “The mood of the nation has changed. The wave is against Modi. The opposition has sensed that the Modi government can be defeated. There is a genuine fear that if a man like Modi, with dictatorial tendencies, returns to power, there will be a question mark on the future of Indian democracy,” he added. “We are happy with the ‘tukde tukde’ label. Let’s not forget that it is the Congress party, which made ‘tukde tukde’ of Pakistan,” he said, responding to BJP charge that the party manifesto is written by the “tukde tukde gang”. The BJP has been using “tukde tukde” gang to refer to students accused of raising anti-India slogans in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in 2016 and has generalised the phrase to attack those it accuses of sympathising with Maoists and separatists. Congress party’s record very clear, he said, adding that wars fought under the political leadership of the Congress have seen India decisively defeat Pakistan. When asked about the promise of review of sedition law in the Congress manifesto, Chavan said the party makes it clear that it wants to differentiate between the act against the nation and opposing the government. “There is a difference between anti-national acts of stealing defence secrets and selling it to Pakistan and saying demonetisation has been the most stupid decision of the Modi government,” Chavan said. “It is the right of the opposition and every citizen to ask the government of the day for accountability. The sedition law was rarely used during the UPA rule. Now, the government is misusing it and there are 179 sedition cases in different parts of the country,” he said. “In JNU, if somebody has a different point of view, do you arrest them under sedition?” he asked. He said the BJP’s manifesto has consistently given place to issues of Ram temple, uniform civil code in the last three elections. “Modi had got absolute majority after 30 years. There was no alliance partner or deputy PM. Modi was the ruler and he has not been able to explain his performance on development front,” he said. Chavan said the Congress-led opposition has deliberately avoided a national alliance against the BJP since it would have to be under some leader. “This is what Modi wanted- to convert the election into a US presidential style campaign,” he added. When asked about alliances, he said the Congress has 23 parties on board in the state-level alliances. “There are conflict of interests in some states. But, in a large country this is bound to happen. By and large, alliances are in place,” he said. Targeting the BJP, he said on the issues of development, national welfare, the ruling party is no match to Congress. “All their promises have fallen flat. Hence, it is effectively using methods of coercion and inducement. Their motto is anything goes in politics…,” he said. Referring to the I-T raids in Madhya Pradesh, Chavan said it was “tax terrorism”. “To threaten and create an atmosphere of terror,” he said. When asked about Shiv Sena joining hands with BJP , Chavan alleged, “It is clear agencies like ED, CBI have been utilised.” Chavan said the Rafale deal was a complicated case of huge corruption. “It is the largest defence corruption scandal where laws and decisions have been twisted around. (Former Defence minister Manohar) Parrikar refused to toe the line to increase the price in the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC). The matter was not resolved at the DAC and hence it was taken up by the Cabinet Committee on Security, where the prime minister approved the price hike,” he claimed.last_img read more

Priyanka slams UP govt over alleged attack on MLA

first_imgRae Bareli/Lucknow: A day after an alleged attack on Rae Bareli MLA Aditi Singh, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra called it an assault on democracy while a party delegation met Governor Ram Naik, demanding a judicial probe.The Congress has alleged that the MLA was on her way to oversee the voting for a no-confidence motion against zila panchayat chairman Avadhesh Pratap Singh, who is the brother of BJP’s Lok Sabha candidate Dinesh Singh. “This is an attack on democracy. Nothing of this sort has ever happened in Rae Bareli. Country-made weapons, bricks and lathis were used in the attack. Zila panchayat members were dragged from their vehicles,” Priyanka Gandhi alleged. In Lucknow, a delegation led by UP Congress chief Raj Babbar sought a judicial probe into the alleged attack. Priyanka Gandhi claimed that one of the zila panchayat members was run over by a vehicle. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra Singh”What kind of democracy is this?

We will take legal recourse and file a complaint against the local administration if required,” she said. Priyanka Gandhi, who was scheduled to take part in a roadshow in Varanasi later in the day, said they had told the administration that something of this kind could take place but precautionary measures were not taken. “We have demanded to cancel proceedings of the no-confidence motion and fix a new date for it,” the Congress stated in an official release here.last_img read more

Key units arrive in Darfur ahead of deployment of hybrid UNAU force

26 November 2007Chinese and Bangladeshi units that will form part of the hybrid United Nations-African Union peacekeeping force in Darfur (UNAMID) have arrived in the war-torn Sudanese region to help in the transition from the existing AU peace operation (AMIS). At the weekend 135 troops from a Chinese engineering company that will eventually number 315 arrived in Nyala, the capital of South Darfur state, to begin their deployment, UN spokesperson Michele Montas told reporters in New York today.The advance Chinese troops are part of the UN’s support package to AMIS and will help pave the way for the deployment of UNAMID by undertaking work critical to the establishment of the hybrid mission, Ms. Montas added.A separate Bangladeshi Formed Police Unit (FPU) also arrived in Nyala late last week to begin work supporting AMIS.UNAMID, which is due to take over from AMIS at the start of next year, will have an estimated 26,000 troops and police officers when it reaches full deployment. They are tasked with trying to quell the violence and suffering in Darfur, where more than 200,000 people have been killed and at least 2.2 million others displaced since rebel groups began fighting Government forces and allied militia in 2003.The AU-UN Joint Special Representative, Rodolphe Adada, visited both new units yesterday after earlier holding meetings with Ali Mahmoud, the Governor of South Darfur. The two men discussed the security situation inside the Kalma camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs).In a press statement, Mr. Adada said that he and the Governor agreed that arms inside Kalma camp posed a threat not only to other IDPs but to humanitarian workers trying to deliver assistance.Meanwhile, the UN and AU Chief Mediators for Darfur, Tayé-Brook Zerihoun and Sam Ibok, are heading to Juba, south Sudan, tomorrow for further discussions with Darfur rebel groups based there and with members of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) Task Force for the Darfur Peace Process.The mediators are scheduled to travel to Darfur itself next week to hold consultations with the leadership of one of the region’s many rebel groups, the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM). read more

Despite drop in civilian casualties Afghan conflict still takes devastating toll –

“The United Nations welcomes the reduction in civilian casualties, but we must remember that Afghan children, women and men continue to be killed and injured at alarmingly high levels,” the Secretary-General’s Deputy Special Representative for Afghanistan, Nicholas Haysom, said in a news release.The 2012 Midyear Report on the Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict states that during the first half of the year, conflict-related violence led to 1,145 civilian deaths and 1,954 injuries. While these figures represent a 15 per cent decrease compared to last year, the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) stressed that more needs to be done protect civilians. “The 3,099 civilian casualties documented in this report were ordinary Afghans struggling to go about their daily lives in the midst of an armed conflict,” said Mr. Haysom, adding that out of the 3,099 casualties, 925 were women and children. “I call on all parties to the conflict to increase their efforts to protect civilians from harm and to respect the sanctity of human life.”The report notes that anti-Government elements were responsible for 80 per cent of civilian casualties, down 15 per cent from the same time period in 2011. UNAMA documented that Pro-Government forces were responsible for 10 per cent of the civilian casualties, down 25 per cent on the previous year, while the remaining 10 per cent of the casualty total could not be attributed to any party in the conflict. The report also notes that while overall casualties have decreased, attacks against schools have increased and the Taliban’s interference in the running of schools has impact on children’s access to education, especially girls.During the first six months of the year, UNAMA verified 34 attacks, including cases of burnings of school buildings, targeted killings and intimidation of teachers and school officials, armed attacks against and occupation of schools and closures, particularly of girls’ schools.“It is extremely worrying that attacks against schools have increased so dramatically,” said acting head of UNAMA’s Human Rights Unit, James Rodehaver. “These attacks not only put children at risk of harm, but also seriously impede their access to education, which is a fundamental human right.”The report also states that improvised explosive devices (IEDs) continue be one of the biggest threats to civilians. They account for 33 per cent of all casualties, higher than any other cause. This figure goes up to 53 per cent when taking into account suicide and complex attacks which used IEDs.“Victim-activated improvised explosive devices are illegal, as they fail to distinguish between civilians and combatants,” said Mr. Haysom “This heinous weapon has killed or maimed the greatest number of Afghan civilians during the conflict and I call on the Taliban to cease their use.”The report also documents human rights abuses against civilians in seven provinces across the country, many of which were not investigated or prosecuted by the Afghan local police. Local residents also raised with UNAMA their concerns over human rights abusers being recruited into the police force.“Impunity for human rights abuses only emboldens the perpetrators,” said the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay. “Violations must be duly investigated, perpetrators brought to justice and the victims granted remedies. Holding violators accountable is a crucial step towards improving security for Afghan women, men and children.” read more

You Know Your Smartphone is Spying on You But Its Worse Than

first_img Is your phone surreptitiously monitoring you?Yes. Of course, it is. You knew that, I knew that, it’s just a given these days. But, it’d also perhaps quite a bit worse than you may have suspected. Many top apps, for instance, are secretly taking screenshots and videos and sending them to other people, according to a new study. That means, of course, anything that shows up on your screen could be digital fodder. AdChoices广告“We found that thousands of popular apps have the ability to record your screen and anything you type,” said David Choffnes told Techxplore. “That includes your username and password, because it can record the characters you type before they turn into those little black dots.”So much is worse than we first think — especially in cybersecurity. But damn, this is bottom barrel. I’m no slouch when it comes to security, but this trumps even my memorized 28 character iPhone passphrase.  The study started because a pair of students — Elleen Pan and Jingjing Ren — wanted to investigate the common urban legend that phones are listening in conversations and shooting out adverts based on that. I think we’ve all had that feeling when a friend tells us about a new thing and then suddenly that’s your top suggested item on Amazon. And that is the absolute worst feeling of deja vu. Unfortunately, while that isn’t exactly what’s happening, the reality is quite a bit worse. “We knew we were looking for a needle in a haystack,” said Choffnes, “and we were surprised to find several needles.”“This opening will almost certainly be used for malicious purposes,” said Christo Wilson, another professor who supervised the students. “It’s simple to install and collect this information. And what’s most disturbing is that this occurs with no notification to or permission by users. In the case we caught, the information sent to a third party was zip codes, but it could just as easily have been credit card numbers.”The fact that there were “no audio leaks at all,” according to Wilson leaves me with a bizarre feeling of unease though. Because we all know that happens, but, then again, if Target can figure out you’re pregnant like two months in, maybe we really are that predictable.  Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Nintendo offers Sadness to Wii U owners

first_imgBack when Nintendo first announced the Wii, in order to mollify the hardcore masses it showed off Sadness, a game presented in a melancholic, mature tone. Eventually, the game became vaporware, and because of how promising it once looked — and its unfulfilled destiny of proving there is a place for the hardcore gamer on the Wii — it became the Wii’s most famous vaporware until it was canceled. Now, the game is being resurrected for the Wii U.The premise of the original game was extremely unique: the player assumed the role of a woman in Ukraine before World War I, tasked with protecting her narcoleptic, schizophrenic, blind, nyctophobic son. Like another Wii success targeted at the hardcore audience, Mad World, Sadness was to be presented in black-and-white to foster the melancholy, but as we all remember, the game never made it to release.Aside from losing a mature game — something the Wii sorely needed — Sadness was also said to use the Wiimote in an actually interesting, waggle-free way where the controllers would control the character’s hands. When developer Nibris shut down, Sadness — an appropriate title for a studio shutting down — went along with it. Now, indie developers HullBreach Studios and Cthulhi Games are picking up the IP, and will aim to finally develop and release one of the Wii’s most famous what-if games.Speaking with Nintendo Life, the studios revealed a few details about the game, such as that they’re going to stick with the Slavic mythology, and the new title will likely be built in Unity. Perhaps most strikingly, the new game will shift to 2D, and include RPG and puzzle-based mechanics (they are indie developers, after all!) that didn’t seem to be in the original.Cthulhi Games revealed that the development duo are waiting for formal approval from the old developers. However, they did state that if approval is not granted, the team will simply change what legally prevents them from going ahead with the project, and continue with development. The game is being targeted for a 2016 Wii U exclusive release date, but strangely enough, the Wii U may not even be around by then.Expect more information from the devs sometime in 2014.last_img read more

Man of the abstract

first_imgNo related posts. “Abstraccionísimo” explores the passions of Christian Porras Piedra (also known as C Po Pie), a member of a new generation of artists in Guanacaste. As a composer, vocalist, musician and visual artists, Porras delves into multiple disciplines and techniques.The youngest of three siblings, his mother studied art at University of Costa Rica Bellas Artes, and introduced Porras to the fine arts. This combined with his father’s musical talent led Porras to develop innovative and diverse approaches to express his talents.Porras built on his skills studying at the University of Costa Rica, attending numerous workshops and seeking the guidance of intellectual mentors (including Carlos Arguedas Molina). Today, Porras paints with acrylics in a less academic, more passionate way, with a heavy Guanacasteco influence.Looking for his own distinct interpretations, he separated the fine art from his music. While engrossed as a composer, he created two musical productions with original content, “Ticolandia“ and “Diverse Land Guanacaste.“When he paints, Porras draws on his daily experience and incorporates aspects of both pop-style and impressionism.Whether wielding a brush or a guitar, Porras has found plenty of opportunities for his creative output, participating in cultural activities in and out of Costa Rica, including countries like Canadá, Guatemala and Colombia.On Saturday, June 29th, his newest exhibit, entitled “Abstraccionísimo,” will open at the Hidden Garden Art Gallery from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The gallery is located 5 kilometers west of the Daniel Oduber Airport.
