Nageswara Rao and Hemant Gupta also observed that one seat in MS (General Surgery) course from the Management Quota of Kamineni Academy of Medical Sciences and Research Centre for the next academic year (2021-22) shall be granted to Mothukuru Sriyah Koumudi.Koumudi had secured All India Rank-93563 with 327 marks in the NEET examination for admission into Post Graduation Medical Course. She was called for counselling and was given provisional admission to the MS (General Surgery) course and was allotted to Kamineni Academy of Medical Sciences and Research Centre, Hyderabad under Management Quota. She was required to report before the Principal of the College by 04:00 PM on 30.07.2020. In the meanwhile, the last date for admission into PG Medical Courses was extended till 30.08.2020 pursuant to the directions issued Supreme Court. Although she made an attempt to meet the Chairman of the College on 07.08.2020, she was not permitted to meet him. Koumudi then approached the Telangana High Court aggrieved by the denial of admission. The High Court allowed the Writ Petition and directed the National Medical Commission/ Medical Council of India to create or sanction one seat in MS (General Surgery). A further direction was given to Kamineni Academy of Medical Sciences and Research Centre, Hyderabad to grant admission to the her in MS (General Surgery) course. The National Medical Commission approached the Apex Court challenging this judgment of the High Court in as much as it directed creation of a seat for this academic year for granting admission to Koumudi. The court, while considering the appeal noted the following observations made in an earlier judgment in S. Krishna Sradha v. The State of Andhra Pradesh & Ors. The bench observed that the following directions issued in S. Krishna Sradha case (supra) can be made applicable to admission to Post Graduate Courses as well(i) That in a case where candidate/student has approached the court at the earliest and without any delay and that the question is with respect to the admission in medical course all the efforts shall be made by the concerned court to dispose of the proceedings by giving priority and at the earliest. (ii) Under exceptional circumstances, if the court finds that there is no fault attributable to the candidate and the candidate has pursued his/her legal right expeditiously without any delay and there is fault only on the part of the authorities and/or there is apparent breach of rules and regulations as well as related principles in the process of grant of admission which would violate the right of equality and equal treatment to the competing candidates and if the time schedule prescribed – 30th September, is over, to do the complete justice, the Court under exceptional circumstances and in rarest of rare cases direct the admission in the same year by directing to increase the seats, however, it should not be more than one or two seats and such admissions can be ordered within reasonable time, i.e., within one month from 30th September, i.e., cut off date and under no circumstances, the Court shall order any Admission in the same year beyond 30th October. However, it is observed that such relief can be granted only in exceptional circumstances and in the rarest of rare cases. In case of such an eventuality, the Court may also pass an order cancelling the admission given to a candidate who is at the bottom of the merit list of the category who, if the admission would have been given to a more meritorious candidate who has been denied admission illegally, would not have got the admission, if the Court deems it fit and proper, however, after giving an opportunity of hearing to a student whose admission is sought to be cancelled. (iii) In case the Court is of the opinion that no relief of admission can be granted to such a candidate in the very academic year and wherever it finds that the action of the authorities has been arbitrary and in breach of the rules and regulations or the prospectus affecting the rights of the students and that a candidate is found to be meritorious and such candidate/student has approached the court at the earliest and without any delay, the court can mould the relief and direct the admission to be granted to such a candidate in the next academic year by issuing appropriate directions by directing to increase in the number of seats as may be considered appropriate in the case and in case of such an eventuality and if it is found that the management was at fault and wrongly denied the admission to the meritorious candidate, in that case, the Court may direct to reduce the number of seats in the management quota of that year, meaning thereby the student/students who was/were denied admission illegally to be accommodated in the next academic year out of the seats allotted in the management quota. (iv) Grant of the compensation could be an additional remedy but not a substitute for restitutional remedies. Therefore, in an appropriate case the Court may award the compensation to such a meritorious candidate who for no fault of his/her has to lose one full academic year and who could not be granted any relief of admission in the same academic year. As the last date for admissions for the present academic year was 30.08.2020, the Court said that it is not inclined to grant admission to Koumudi for this academic year by cancelling admission granted to another candidate. While disposing the appeal, the bench observed:Though we disapprove the practice of Respondent No.2-College in picking up students for granting admission without following the merit list, we do not seek to disturb the admission granted to Respondent No.5. Respondent No.2-College adopted unfair means to deprive Respondent No.1 admission to PG course. Respondent No.1 has lost one precious academic year for no fault of hers for which she has to be compensated by way of an amount of Rs.10 Lakhs to be paid by Respondent No.2- College within a period of four weeks from today. Furthermore, Respondent No.1 is entitled for admission to the MS (General Surgery) course in the next academic year 2021-22 and shall be given admission in a seat allocated to Respondent No.2-College. In other words, one seat in MS (General Surgery) course from the Management Quota of Respondent No.2-College for the next academic year (2021-22) shall be granted to Respondent No.1.

Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on August 28, 2013 at 1:41 am Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2 There had to be some hesitancy. Christian Hackenberg knew what he could be up against at Penn State — perpetual scrutiny, a thinner supporting cast and three seasons without postseason play.But it’s still Penn State. There’s still the tradition of excellence. The Nittany Lions still play in front of hordes of adoring fans that remained steadfast through scandal and controversy.That all sold the school to the quarterback, but even more important was the new man at the helm.“He wanted to play for Bill O’Brien,” said former Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy head coach Micky Sullivan, who coached Hackenberg at the high school.Hackenberg hadn’t even been on the radar when former head coach Joe Paterno was finishing up at PSU. It wasn’t until O’Brien was hired and made Hackenberg one of his first recruiting priorities that Penn State would find its eventual quarterback of the future.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn less than two months a rookie head coach sold a program embroiled in scandal to the No. 2 quarterback recruit in the nation.“Bill O’Brien’s a special guy,” Sullivan said. “I’m very impressed with the things he does, the way he handles himself.”Lining up under center against Syracuse on Saturday could be Hackenberg, who was one of O’Brien’s top priorities when the coach first arrived on campus. Hackenberg, a true freshman quarterback and Penn State’s first five-star commit after the Jerry Sandusky scandal, could make the first start of his career when the Nittany Lions play the Orange at 3:30 p.m. at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.With the idealistic quarterback — Hackenberg’s 6-foot-4 build fits the Nittany Lions’ prostyle offense to perfection — and the mastermind head coach, PSU hasn’t missed a beat. It would have been bowl-eligible last season and is receiving votes in the preseason AP Top 25 this year.For a moment, though, everything could have fallen apart in the wake of the scandal.Running back Silas Redd, who played two years for Penn State, was the first one to go. He departed for Southern California and it seemed more would follow in droves.But most stuck with it. And then the recruits started to come.Hackenberg was the first, but Adam Breneman, the No. 2 tight end in the country, joined him nine days later. And, most importantly, they stuck with it even after sanctions came down.“I think it says something about the type of character that guy had and all the other recruits that we had that held on to their commitment despite the sanctions,” guard John Urschel said. “It’s a great place for football and there’s something special here and I think they recognize that, and I think that’s why they kept their commitments.”Hackenberg committed after the scandal broke. But before sanctions came down, for a time, he had to rethink his decision.He sat down with Sullivan and his family and went through the whole litany of pros and cons. Hackenberg’s answer, Sullivan said: “I want to go there.”“Was I surprised that he stuck with it? No. Was there wavering or questioning? I think at times, at least early on, we looked,” Sullivan said. “You know, ‘OK, what are we going to do? Do you really want to do this?’ And Christian always said, ‘I want to go to Penn State.’”Hackenberg was not available to comment because O’Brien does not allow freshmen to talk to the media.Hackenberg only arrived at PSU this summer, but immediately he’s been thrown into the fire, competing for the starting quarterback job at a Big 10 school. He relishes the spotlight, Sullivan said. Fork Union opened the season in his senior year with a game televised on ESPN. His year ended with the Under Armour All-America Game.People don’t talk as much about the scandal now as much as they did last year.“It’s nice to not have the media be talking about things other than football,” Urschel said.But Hackenberg sticking with his commitment will inevitably once again thrust him into the spotlight.“That just shows the type of guy that he is, shows his character and the things that matter to him the most,” safety Malcolm Willis said. “Now that he’s here, he’s in a battle for that quarterback spot.”But Hackenberg can only carry the Nittany Lions so far. In a best-case scenario — and assuming he doesn’t redshirt — he will play in one bowl game in his career. If he leaves early, he will never carry them to the postseason.So his arrival is as much symbolic as it is tangible. PSU has three more years before it can again be the power it once was. Once that time passes, the Nittany Lions will be in good hands.“As for the future,” Willis said, “as long as Penn State football keeps doing what it’s doing, then we should be fine.” Comments

… in response to calls for agreement to be adopted for other companiesBy Vahnu ManikchandChairman of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA), Rawle Lucas, has stated that cases of delinquentGRA Chairman Rawle Lucastaxpayers will have to be looked at individually before any determination can be made on whether it should be settled.He was at the time commenting on recent calls by the Private Sector Commission (PSC) for a similar procedure – used to resolve the longstanding legal battle on consumption taxes between Demerara Distillers Limited and GRA – to be adopted in dealing with other delinquent companies.“From the point of view of the Private Sector Commission, we wish to urge that the Guyana Revenue Authority now engage other aggrieved companies to apply similar formulae to correct the distortions in the market place resulting from this action,” the Commission said in a statement on Friday.However, in an invited comment, Lucas explained to Guyana Times that in its calls, the PSC is assuming that all delinquent companies have the same problems.“They are assuming that but I don’t know that everybody has the same problems… Was the DDL story the same, I don’t know. I have no idea as to what the cases are but all the cases can’t be the same, I know that for sure,” he stated.According to the GRA Chairman, the cases will have to be looked at individually before any decision can be made for a similar settlement, as was done with DDL. “One has got to look at every case by itself, take the matters case by case. It’s not something where you can just apply a rule,” he noted.Moreover, Lucas pointed out that persons have to also take into consideration that the GRA might have decided to settle the $5 billion debt with DDL because the matter probably constructed badly. “I have no idea if they have the same problem and remember the people who constructed the DDL problem, might have constructed it badly in the first instance. I don’t know if people are taking that into consideration,” he noted.When further probed whether the Consumption Tax assessment that was levied against the local beverage giant was indeed “badly constructed”, the Chairman declined to say, noting that he will not disclose information on any taxpayer’s case.“I don’t and I don’t expect the GRA to be discussing tax payers’ matters in the public. Notwithstanding the fact that DDL might have put a statement on the settlement, the details of that matter still remains private and we do not intend to disclose details of the matter,” Lucas remarked.Last week, DDL announced that it has reached an “amicable” settlement with the GRA thus resolving the longstanding legal battle between the two, which arose out of a Consumption Tax assessment levied against DDL by former Commissioner General Khurshid Sattuar in January 2009 to the tune of $5,392,020,753.However, the legal battle dated back to 2002, when the local beverage giant raised a legal challenge against the GRA on the methodology adopted by the latter for the assessment of Consumption Tax. In February 2005, the High Court found in favour of DDL. The GRA subsequently appealed that decision and on July 31, 2008, the Guyana Court of Appeal unanimously dismissed the GRA’s appeal.But the following month, GRA commenced a new assessment, this time, issuing a new claim billing the company a crippling $5.392 billion. This was again challenged by DDL in 2009 and the High Court had issued an Order Nisi pending the hearing of the matter.However, there has since been much speculation and condemnation of the transactions. Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo had strongly condemned the transaction, calling it a “scandalous out of court settlement” that has cost the State billions of dollars in revenue.“The settlement sends the wrong message to the business community; that a company can unilaterally decide to stop paying taxes, while other companies comply with the law, take the matter to court and drag it out until a sympathetic Government comes to power and settles its debts to the State,” the former Guyanese President stated.Jagdeo further outlined that the settlement has opened the door for other companies to seek refunds on taxes paid. “There have already been reports in the Private Sector of other major companies consulting lawyers about this possibility. Management officials from a major local alcohol and beverage producing company have made it clear, in the past when I was President, that the company would be seeking a refund depending on the outcome of the DDL matter,” he noted.

Learners who are part of the Bokamoso Cross Mentorship Programme gathered at the Nelson Mandela Foundation to share stories of their personal growth in the past year. (Images: Shamin Chibba)More than 50 participants of the Bokamoso Cross Mentorship Programme gathered at the Nelson Mandela Foundation for the initiative’s final event of the year, held on Saturday, 28 November.The gathering of mostly Grade 11 learners was meant to give them an opportunity to talk about the lessons they had learnt through participating in the programme over the past year.The schoolchildren took part in 10 workshops centred on its five pillars, namely: leadership; history, culture and heritage; personal development and wellness; academic excellence; and social responsibility, said Bokamoso’s founder, Tebogo Moalusi. Bokamoso founder, Tebogo Moalusi, said he is getting learners to become selfless servants to people of South Africa. For Moalusi, the programme attempts to prepare the pupils for the world after school. “We’re sending these kids out [into] the world and we want them to have a base in terms of being able to dig deep and understand what leadership truly is about.”This was also the reason the event was held at the Nelson Mandela Foundation. “We all know Mandela was a great figure as a leader and one of the most important figures on giving back to society broadly. So we came here to give them a context and a narrative that will allow them to find something within them once everything becomes a little bit difficult going forward.”Brand South Africa gave Bokamoso its vote of confidence by donating R750 000 to the initiative over the next three years. Brand South Africa’s manager of civil society, Thoko Modise (left), hands over one of three cheques to Bokamoso. Brand South Africa is donating an accumulated R750 000 to the group over the next three years.LEARNERS SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCESDineo, a learner from Johannesburg, said the visit to Constitution Hill, an event Bokamoso held earlier in the year, brought her closer to history. Learning about South Africa’s past touched her, she said. Fellow learner Cailtyn said the visit made her realise that we should not make the same mistakes twice.The highlight for Grade 11 learner Lebo was the time spent with the elderly. “We made them less grumpy,” she said.Others felt they had become empowered through Bokamoso and had grown emotionally. Bokamoso held its final event of the year at the Nelson Mandela Foundation so that learners could understand what leadership is all about. Moalusi co-founded Bokamoso in 2007 with four other members, all of whom felt tired about working in the corporate world without giving back to the community. “Corporate just swallows you up and you forget to play your part,” he said. “So [starting Bokamoso] was a yearning to be part of the solution.”Bokamoso’s track record was successful, said Moalusi. “We got great testimonies from learners who paid homage to the contribution Bokamoso had made. The first bunch of learners have gone through matric, they went to varsity and now they are getting their first jobs.”He hopes participants carry with them three important leadership traits after they leave Bokamoso: the will to serve, courage and passion. “If you’re not able to serve I don’t know how you would lead. A lot of people today are not courageous enough to make difficult decisions. You have to be brave enough to be unpopular but do things for the right reasons. And there is so much we can find that [is] negative and tell a difficult story, but passion and positivity is great fuel for leadership.” Watch Bokamoso’s 2014 finale video

Geocachers otco, gsilberbestlife, kulhalGeocachers kulhal and otco recently embarked on a journey to locate the last cache in a vanishing series. The duo traveled half way around the world to claim a “found it” on the final active cache in the Project A.P.E. cache series. To many geocachers, the Project A.P.E. caches ring a nostalgic bell.The A.P.E. cache series was established in May of 2001. The promotion was for the film Planet of the Apes. Thirteen different A.P.E. caches, each with props from the movie and a story that tied into the movie, were hidden all over the world. Those who found the caches received a unique icon.All that is left of the highly sought series is a single, active cache hidden deep in the tropical jungles of Brazil. Mission 4: Southern Bowl is now the last obtainable A.P.E. cache. The remainder of the geocaches in the series have been archived. The final cache has been logged less than 40 times.Project A.P.E. Cache Iconkulhal and otco met up with Brazilian cacher, gsilberbestlife, when they arrived. According to kulhal, the excitement of discovering the last of the vanishing series only heightened the caching crew’s sense of adventure.Early one morning, otco, gsilberbestlife, and kulhal piled into their rental car and drove 300 km outside of Sao Paulo, Brazil. They arrived at Intervales State Park, the supposed location of the lone standing A.P.E. cache. Along the way, the cachers were surprised to find that many locals were unaware of the park’s existence. This further motivated them to discover the rarely visited cache.According to kulhal, experiencing the beauty of the park was just as much of an adventure as discovering the cache, “I equally appreciated the fact that the cache brought me to a place that I would have never visited otherwise. I experienced a wonderful part of the world and saw nature so different from what I know from home.”The roads through IntervalesUsing a sketchy GPS signal to navigate windy, unmarked dirt roads, the cachers were able to drive within 100 meters of the cache. Now only a few minor obstacles stood between the cachers and the final A.P.E. cache. Wild animals, jungle-like terrain, and a lack of a trail map couldn’t stop these cachers.Otco, gsilberbestlife, and kulhal discovered the cache successfully, noting that, “The beauty of this cache is something else.” Kulhal stated, “I had a feeling that I was touching a piece of geocaching history and for that it was a special moment.”It’s a special moment geocachers may continue to share. There have been more logs in the past 2 years than in the nine years after the cache was placed. And because this is the final A.P.E. cache, it is likely that an increasing number of geocachers will be traveling to Brazil. Located in a new exotic setting, the Mission 4: Southern Bowl is an opportunity for geocachers to discover a significant cache.Waterfall in Intervales State ParkThe story doesn’t end here.

Lately I have been struggling with identifying the core concepts of green building and remodeling. For years I was comfortable with a list of four items: energy efficiency, durability, indoor environmental quality, and resource efficiency. Then I got an earful from my little unibrowed buddy, Michael Anschel, who pinpoints five core concepts: energy efficiency, water efficiency, resource efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and site and community impact. We had a spirited discussion about it, recorded for posterity, where I convinced him that he needed to include durability, based on my argument that too many professionals still have a long way to go toward making buildings durable.Then Martin Holladay comes up with his “Green Homes Don’t Need to Be Durable” blog post, which he won’t let go of. Now I am really starting to question my own sanity and that of everyone else in the green building industry.Let’s Try to Come Up with a NumberAfter a quick review of green building programs that I am familiar with, LEED for Homes has seven sections; the National Green Building Standard has six; Minnesota Green Star has five; and EarthCraft House has nine. Okay, now I am totally confused.On top of this, I am currently working on a green building textbook with Abe Kruger, and we have come up with eight principles: energy efficiency, resource efficiency, durability, water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, community impact, homeowner education and maintenance, and sustainable site development. I realize that in the end, everyone is heading in the same direction via slightly different routes. Demand is rising, both in the industry and among consumers, for a single green standard that everyone can follow. While I can see that happening eventually, I expect that it will take a long time for all the existing programs to distill themselves down to a single, consistent standard. In the meantime, we will have to work with what we have.

More than 9 million square feet of New York City rooftops have been painted white in the last nine years in a long-term initiative to make occupants more comfortable and lower cooling costs. In addition to making city living more bearable in summer, the NYC CoolRoofs initiative also is intended to provide training for local job seekers who want experience in installing reflective roofing materials, the program’s website says. In 2009, the city began painting rooftops for free on buildings belonging to non-profits, affordable housing projects, schools, museums, and hospitals, according to Business Insider. The goal is to coat 1 million square feet of rooftop — roughly 23 acres — per year, but this year the program beat that by 50%.RELATED ARTICLESLos Angeles Lightens Streets in Bid to Stay CoolUrban Heat: Can White Roofs Help Cool World’s Warming Cities? Building owners who agree to cover the cost of the acrylic coating get labor, technical assistance, paint brushes, and rollers from CoolRoofs. The theory is that lighter rooftops reflect more heat than dark ones and reduce what’s called the urban heat island effect. The city estimates that installing a cool roof can reduce air conditioning costs by 10% to 30% on hot summer days. Greenhouse gas emissions also fall as energy use declines. The same thinking is behind an effort in Los Angeles to reduce urban temperatures, not by painting rooftops but by coating streets with a white sealer. A study published in 2014 found that replacing dark roof surfaces with light, reflective surfaces could reduce temperatures in cities like Washington, D.C., or New York by more than 3 degrees, an article posted by The New York Times said. But researchers also pointed to some potential cautions with reflective roofs. In Florida, for example, reflective roofs slightly lowered rainfall amounts, so the cooling effect wasn’t as pronounced. Reflective roofs can can lead to higher heating costs for roofs that aren’t snow-covered in the winter. An article posted at Untapped Cities says that the white acrylic paint used in New York goes on in two coats. The article cites a study by Columbia University’s Center for Climate Research that found white roofs were, on average, 43 degrees cooler than unpainted black roofs. The coating also helps prolong the life of the roof by decreasing thermal expansion. It costs Los Angeles $40,000 to coat a single mile of roadway with a product called CoolSeal. The CoolRoofs program doesn’t publish information about costs on its website, and a call to the program’s press office went unanswered.
