first_img KCS-content Coalition has done little to cut red tape Tags: NULL whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ THE coalition government has done little to cut costly red tape since it came to power, according to a report from the National Audit Office (NAO) – despite promising to slash burdensome regulation.The report from the NAO, published today, found “ no attempt has been made to review the total number of regulations that businesses face” since David Cameron came to power. And the government still has no plan to stop the tide of regulation that swamps firms, according to the report. Last year, the coalition promised a “bonfire of red tape”. It said it would only introduce regulation as a last resort and bring in a “one in one out” policy that would see out-dated rules scrapped when new ones are made. However, earlier this week the British Chamber of Commerce (BCC) said new red tape – including regulations from the EU – would cost firms an extra £23bn over the next four years.Yesterday at Prime Minister’s questions, Cameron said he wanted to see fewer regulations and praised business secretary Vince Cable for his approach to the issue.However, Cameron’s aides privately say he is frustrated at what he sees as Cable’s lack of urgency when it comes to scrapping British rules and limiting the impact of European ones. In the face of rising unemployment, the BCC yesterday warned the private sector would be less likely to pick up the slack following public sector job cuts if the regulatory burden continues to increase. Alexander Ehmann, head of regulation at the Institute of Directors, said: “Today’s findings underline the immediate need for a coherent de-regulatory strategy across Whitehall.” center_img Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndo More From Our Partners Colin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the policethegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgPorsha Williams engaged to ex-husband of ‘RHOA’ co-star Falynn Guobadiathegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.com Share Wednesday 16 February 2011 8:52 pmlast_img read more

first_imgHaley Harrisonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/haley-harrison/ Facebook Students concerned about off-campus thefts printThe Frogs swept the UTSA Thunderbirds 25-23, 25-18, 25-13, in their season opener behind a swinging offense line led by Preseason All-Big 12 middle blocker Anna Walsh.TCU’s offense came out strong, but the Thunderbird’s scrappy back row defense gave the visitors an early grip of the match.“Just like every team, we had first match jitters,” TCU head coach Jill Kramer said. “This past week it has taken a few reps to get locked in to what is happening in a drill. I think that is what happened today.”TCU’s defense came alive when Kramer called a time-out after being down 18-13 in the first set. The team came back from behind with a big block from Walsh and a kill from freshman Allye Beth Deaton to make it a 25-23 set win.Kramer said the team began to control the match with cleaner passes and better reads on defense.“We had a lot of young players out there so it changes things a little bit,” Kramer said. “We have a lot of competition in our gym. I am really comfortable with anybody hopping in at anytime.”The incoming recruiting class was ranked No. 24 in PrepVolleyball.com’s Top 30 Collegiate Recruiting Classes this past summer.New faces in TCU’s lineup included freshmen middle blocker Sarah Swanson, libero Dani Dennison, and defensive specialist Berklie Baker. Junior transfer Lexi MacLean also had a spot in the starting six. Although, the big numbers on the front line still came from returners Ashleigh Martin and Walsh, who tallied a .667 hitting percentage with 11 kills on the night.“Anna is connecting with both setters really well right now and that is because she has been consistent,” Kramer said.Kramer also contributed the team’s success to the student section who came out for the season opener.“Thank you to the students that came out to cheer at the game tonight,” Kramer said. “It wasn’t just having students in the stands, it was having a unified group in the stands.”The Frogs are back in the University Recreation Center to play Coastal Carolina at 6 p.m Saturday.

first_img‘Unchartered territory’ as Trump impeachment trial begins in the Senate + posts Former President Jimmy Carter hospitalized Twitter Michael Rogershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/michael-rogers/ Twitter Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Facebook Trump talks Democrats, impeachment at Dallas rally Facebook ReddIt Michael Rogershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/michael-rogers/ ReddItcenter_img Michael Rogershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/michael-rogers/ Photo by Heesoo Yang. Linkedin Michael Rogers printWith spring dates for college admission exams being rescheduled and postponed across the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic, TCU will not require prospective students who are currently high school juniors to submit standardized test scores as part of their application to the university.“There’s more to a student than their GPA and test scores,” Dean of Admission Heath Einstein said. TCU’s decision comes just days after the University of California and all public universities in Oregon suspended SAT and ACT requirements for 2021 applicants. The ACT has already announced its national April 4 test day has been rescheduled for June 13 in response to the concerns about the uncertain spread of COVID-19.Einstein said a “thorough analysis of a student’s high school record” is just as good of a metric for judging their likelihood of success at TCU.“TCU wants to do what we can to reduce some of the anxiety, so that students may focus on their safety and successfully shift to a new educational modality,” Einstein said in a press release. However, if they choose to, prospective students will be allowed to self-report their standardized test scores with their application using the university’s online admission portal. Einstein said this process involves a level of trust and is reliant upon “student’s honest self-reporting,” saying the “stakes are too great” for anyone to bend their numbers.“If you tell us you got one score, and we find out your score was inaccurate, we’re going to rescind your offer of admission,” Einstein said. “If that happens in the middle of the summer before you start at TCU you’ll really be in a bad spot.”Einstein said TCU has allowed students to self-report their test scores online for the last four years, a move inspired by an analysis of large public school systems and colleges throughout the country that already allowed self-reporting.The data showed less than 100 fraudulent cases out of “hundreds of thousands” of self-reported test scores to places such as the University of Illinois, the University of Washington and the University of California public school system, Einstein said.“It doesn’t make sense for us not to adopt a policy that was student-friendly and in line with our entire operation,” Einstein said.This move will not impact students who have already been admitted to the university, but for students thinking of applying in 2021, Einstein said the university will “remove any attention” from test scores if a student chooses not to submit them.“There’s still going to be students who take the test at some point and they’ll choose to submit them, or they’ll have the option to do that,” Einstein said. “If they would like to (submit the scores with their application) we’ll review it.”Einstein said for students who might see a clear discrepancy between their grades and these test scores, this system gives them the option to submit just their grades if they “give a better reflection of their academic ability.”“We can get an analysis of a student’s academic record, and an analysis of a student’s contribution to community by how a student spends his or her time, their resume and what their counselors and teachers say about them,” Einstein said.Einstein said new information will be available on TCU’s website over the coming months, which will help advise students “when would be more appropriate to use standardized test scores and when would be less appropriate.” Einstein has been answering questions like those on social media for prospective Horned Frog students and families unable to visit campus because of the coronavirus pandemic.TCU is also offering virtual academic advising for students who have already been admitted to plan out their future path at TCU.Einstein said he will be hosting future Facebook Live sessions as the university works to transition all of its upcoming admission events to virtual experiences.He’ll also be doing a TCU Instagram takeover this Monday.

Any violation of these measures will result in the suspension or closure of the news media and the printing press that produces it, together with confiscation of equipment. Any person contributing to the dissemination or publication of such reports is also liable to be punished. Journalists have allegedly received threats from the police and the Minister of Communications.Prior to this decree, journalist Abdoulaye Tiémogo, editor of the satirical weekly Le Canard Déchaîné, was sentenced on June 28 to eight months in prison for “libel and insults”.

Their pain has to be alleviated at this stage.” Taking note of the miserable state of migrant labours in the state who have been forced to undertake kilometers long journey on foot due to the lockdown, the Andhra Pradesh High Court on Friday issued directions to ensure availability of basic amenities to the walking migrants. The court emphasized that if it did not react and pass orders at this stage, it would be falling in its role as a “protector and alleviator of suffering”. Accordingly, a division bench of Justice DVSS Somayajulu and Justice Lalitha Kanneganti ordered the Government to ensure proper availability of food, toilets and medical help etc. for these migrants.The Court observed :”This Court notices that the labour who have left their ancestral homes and villages and moved to the cities for better livelihood to ensure that all of us live in comfort are on the roads today. They represent the people who are working in hundreds of different trades, callings etc., and all of them together ensure that we lead a happy and comfortable life. If at this stage, this Court does not react and pass these orders, this Court would be falling in its role as a protector and alleviator of suffering. Their pain has to be alleviated at this stage. The ever expanding scope of “life” under Article 21 of the Constitution of India will take into account this situation also. They deserve more help particularly when they are trekking back with their heads high instead of living at someone’s mercy”.The bench took note of “disturbing news reports” about the plight of migrants. It referred to a report in “Eenadu” that in a period of 24 hours between 13.05.2020 and 14.05.2020, 1300 people have passed one check post on walk or with cycles. Another 1000 of them have gone in lorries and in other transport vehicles. The Court also referred to reports which indicated that a woman has given birth when she was walking from Nasik to Sathani on the road. Further, this report also indicated that two hours after the delivery, the woman started walking and continued to walk for 150 kms. The National Human Rights Commission has taken note of this. Reports also indicated that ambulances are charging Rs.8,000/- in Mumbai even for moving a small distance.’It’s A Pity To See Migrant Labourers Walking’ : Madras HC Seeks Action Taken Report From Centre & State On Migrants Relief [Read Order] The Court observed that the situation was “alarming” and that “immediate intervention” of the Court was necessary.In this backdrop, the bench observed “The summer heat, particularly in the State of Andhra Pradesh is growing and despite the summer, this Court notices that hundreds of migrant labours with their children and baggage are walking on the National Highways. The State Government has come out with certain measures and as per the reports, at a distance of every 50 kms., a food counters is located to help the moving migrant. Relief centres are also statedly established. But in view of what is stated above, this is of the opinion that following supplemental measures are to be taken on priority and with immediate effect”Particularly, with regard to the walking migrants, the court has directed that: Adequate arrangements for food should be made and the same should be distributed to the migrant labour, who are walking on the National Highway;Outpost centres that have been established by the State should be stocked with good drinking water, oral dehydration salts and glucose packets which should be supplied to the migrant labour, who are walking;Since a large number of women are walking in the heat, temporary toilets in a hygienic condition should be provided, assuring the privacy of the women. Further, Sanitary pad dispensing machines should be organized at every alternate centre, at least;Those who are facing difficulty while walking should be transported in patrol vehicles of NHAI and Police Department, to the nearest shelter. Efforts should also be made to convince the migrant labour to stop walking and to take the transportation being provided by the State Government;All the Police and Revenue authorities should be made aware of all the centres/food counters and they should guide the migrant workers, who are walking, towards the nearest of such centres;Pamphlets should be printed in Hindi and Telugu informing the migrant labour, who are walking on the Highways of the location of these shelters and giving them a list of the phone numbers, which they can contact in case of emergencies. In addition to the above, the court has directed that: Adequate police personnel should be posted at the shelters being maintained for migrants, to ensure that social distancing and discipline is maintained.Trained paramedical volunteers and/or doctors should be posted at every centre, with a dedicated mobile line and an ambulance on standby to attend to any sunstroke victim or for other such medical emergencies. Ambulances on call should be available to assist the migrant workers and to transport them to the nearest hospitals or medical centres for immediate medical assistance, at the cost of the State.The District collector of each District and the Superintendent of Police should appoint a Nodal Officer of a senior rank (Tahsildar/DSP etc.,) from the Revenue Department and the Police Department to look into and supervise each of the shelters etc., and their activities within. One Tahsildar and DSP should be looking into each of the shelters. The services of the District Legal Services Authority may also be taken in case of shortage of staff for rendering any services. Similarly, the services of Para Legal volunteers, NSS, NCC, Bharath Scouts and Guides, Red-cross, Lions Clubs, Rotary Club and such other organisations should also be taken in order to man these shelters and to ensure that food, medical help etc., reach the migrant labour. The Nodal Officers shall have to coordinate all the activities of the shelter. The court further suggested that the State Government must seek help from the voluntary organisations and also from the companies/ firms etc., as part of their CSR activity, to provide food free of cost to these moving migrants. A compliance report of the above directions has to be filed before the court by, with clear details of the shelters and services provided, by May 22, 2020. Before parting, the bench clarified that the issue of quarantine is left at the disposal of the State Government and this Order will not come in the way of the State taking a decision in any individual’s case that he should be quarantined or should be stopped from travelling.On Friday, the Madras HC suo moto sought an action taken report from the State Government and the Centre on the steps taken for the relief of migrants. “It is a pity to see the migrant labourers walking for days together to reach their native places and in the process, some of them had lost their lives due to accidents. The Government authorities of all the States should have extended their human services to those migrant labourers”, observed the HC bench comprising Justices N Kirubakaran and R Hemalatha. Recently, the Karnataka HC had directed the Centre and the State Government to take steps to ensure that no migrant is deprived of an opportunity to travel back to native place on account of incapacity to pay rail fare. The Gujarat HC on Monday had taken suo moto notice of the migrants issue, observing that many are going hungry and are suffering the worst on account of lockdown.On Friday, the Supreme Court had refused to entertain a plea seeking relief for migrants walking on road. “How can we stop them from walking? It is impossible for this Court to monitor who is walking and who is not walking?”, the bench orally observed while dismissing an application seeking urgent directions to all DMs across India to identify walking labourers and to ensure that they reach their native places, free of cost and in a dignified manner.

Eric Fehrenbacher/iStock(BUENA, N.J.) — The parents of the high school wrestler who was forced to cut his dreadlocks or forfeit a match say they’re overwhelmed by the support their son has received.Charles and Rosa Johnson released a statement through their lawyer, saying their son Andrew has been dealing with the aftermath of the controversial incident.“Wrestling has taught Andrew to be resilient in the face of adversity. As we move forward, we are comforted by both the strength of Andrew’s character and the support he’s received from the community. We will do all that we can to make sure that no student-athlete is forced to endure what Andrew experienced,” his parents said in the statement.Johnson, who is black, was told he could not compete with long hair at a meet in Atlantic County on Dec. 19. He was given 90 seconds to decide, according to his family’s statement.Johnson was wearing his usual headgear and covering his hair, but the referee said it was not in compliance with state rules. He then gave the teen the ultimatum of cutting his dreadlocks or forfeiting the match.Dominic Speziali, an attorney who is representing the family, argued that the referee should have raised any concerns during the pre-match weigh-in. And though the referee missed the weigh-in because he was late to the meet, he “failed to raise any issues with the length of his hair or the need to wear a head covering.”After Johnson went out to compete, an athletic trainer then cut his dreadlocks.“As the trainer is cutting Andrew’s hair in the middle of the gym, the referee is behind them directing her to keep cutting until he was satisfied with the length,” Speziali said in the statement.The family defended the athletic trainer and their son’s coaches.“As this matter is further investigated, the family wants to be clear that they are supportive of Andrew’s coaches and the team’s athletic trainer,” Speziali said. “The blame here rests primarily with the referee and those that permitted him to continue in that role despite clear evidence of what should be a disqualifying race-related transgression.”The referee is not identified in the family’s statement, but Philadelphia ABC station WPVI identified him as Alan Maloney.Maloney did not respond to a request for comment from ABC News. Speziali’s statement notes that the family is awaiting the results of an ongoing inquiry into the referee’s conduct by the N.J. Division of Civil Rights.Meanwhile, the teen’s parents said in the statement that Andrew has received a “thunderous outpouring of unsolicited support — including from an Olympic wrestler, leading civil rights advocates, and elected officials.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Fire Brigade quizzes staff to shape policiesOn 25 Jun 2002 in Personnel Today London Fire Brigade is using a staff survey to shape future policies ondiversity, flexible working and affordable housing. All of the brigade’s 6,750 staff received a 13-page questionnaire last weekwhich will be used to update the HR database to comply with legal requirementsunder the Race Relations (Amendment) Act and monitor the diversity of theworkforce. Also included in the survey are questions on where staff live, how theytravel to work and how long commuting takes. The questions are designed to help shape future policies on key workeraccommodation and flexible working, which the brigade is looking to introducein the autumn. James Dalgleish, head of HR at London Fire Brigade, believes the informationwill help the organisation provide policies that reflect staff requirements. He said: “Up-to-date information is important to HR policy development.By understanding the diversity of our staff we will be able to deal with issuesand discrimination in the workplace. “How staff get to work will help when looking at flexible working,remuneration and key worker housing policies.” The questionnaire also includes a voluntary section on religion and how wellthe brigade accommodates its employees’ faiths. Survey results could lead to the introduction of a policy on religion. Dalgleish said: “Practicing religion and faith in a 24-hour, seven daysa week operation like the fire brigade is difficult, so we might need tosupport staff to do so in the workplace.” By Paul Nelsonlast_img read more
