This will help extend the reach of NCS beyond its core programme and support sustainable growth for Scouting.It also aims to offer new roles for NCS graduates that will support the growth of Scouting in disadvantaged communities, and to allow both organisations to test and learn new approaches.Michael Lynas, CEO of NCS said:“The partnership between National Citizen Service and The Scout Association is all about two great organisations coming together in the interests of our country’s young people. This partnership means that young people from all backgrounds will benefit from NCS programmes delivered by the Scouting movement, and NCS graduates can in turn help Scouting to expand its work in some of our most disadvantaged communities.”The NCS is looking for more partners to help deliver its Innovation Programme, and is open to expressions of interest from any organisation that can demonstrate its expertise and capability to deliver fresh ideas to help improve and expand the programme. There will be two periods a year where formal expressions of interest can be made. Further details can be found on the ‘Innovate with NCS’ page on the NCS site.

Not An Exclusive COVID19 Hospital; Treating Patients With Other Ailments Also: AIIMS Tells Delhi HC

In light of the submissions, the Division Bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Yogesh Khanna has directed Central as well as the Delhi Government to place on record the list of hospitals where these patients could receive treatment for ailments other than Covid-19, free-of-cost according to their eligibility.The court has also directed AIIMS to state whether these patients could be provided treatment at AIIMS itself, as they were receiving earlier.The present PIL was filed by Karan Sethi to address the grievance of about hundred out station patients and their attendants, who, it is stated, were earlier being provided treatment at AIIMS. However, since AIIMS was declared a facility for COVID19 patients, these patients who were given free treatment at AIIMS are now rendered helpless. Therefore, the Petitioner wants free treatment for these non-COVID patients either in AIIMS or in any other government hospital. The Petitioner also highlighted the plight of these patients who are living in Rain Baseras opposite AIIMS. It is submitted that these patients have low immunity as they’re suffering from chronic diseases such as cancer, which makes them vulnerable to COVID19 if they continue to live in such conditions. It was further submitted by the Petitioner that the Delhi Government has come out with an Office Memorandum on the subject of amendment to the guidelines issued for operatilising assistance through Delhi Arogya Kosh (DAK). He contended that the eligibility to avail of the said facility is restricted to patients who are residents of Delhi.Thus, this office memorandum, the Petitioner argues, does not cover the patients highlighted in the petition as most of them come from areas outside Delhi, and hence, cannot be provided free treatment in AIIMS.The status reports filed by the Delhi Government and the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board informed the court that the occupants of the Rain Baseras are in the process of being shifted to Gargi School Building, which is stated to be located in Green Park Extension. It is also disclosed that as against the capacity of 568 persons in 11 such tents, 255 persons were being sheltered.When the concern regarding sanitisation of the said school building was raised by the Petitioner, he was assured by the Delhi Government that the issue of sanitisation would be taken care of before shifting the said patients and their attendants.While directing the Respondents to submit status reports, the court also directed the Petitioner to prepare a list of patients in respect of whom the present petition has been preferred. The said list should include their name, age, the particular ailment that they are suffering from, and the ID number issued by AIIMS (in case they have received treatment at AIIMS), or any other Government Hospital where they may have received treatment earlier.The said has to be provided to the counsels appearing for the Respondents positively by May 04.Petitioner in this case was represented by Senior Advocate Darpan Wadhwa, along with Advocates Arjun Syal, Karan Seth & Shwetank Singh, AdvocatesDelhi Government was represented by Mr Anupam Srivastava AIIMS was represented by Mr Anand VarmaClick here to download orderRead OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Extensive colonization of volcanic ash by an unusual form of Peltigera didactyla at Deception Island, maritime Antarctic

first_imgPeltigera didactyla (With.) J. R. Laundon has a cosmopolitan distribution, but in the Antarctic it is very restricted and is nowhere common or abundant, occurring at a number of sites in the northern maritime Antarctic extending to 65°S (Øvstedal & Lewis-Smith, 2001). Within its Antarctic distribution it appears to be most frequent on Signy Island, South Orkney Islands. Typically, this species grows as small colonies amongst mosses in relatively dry, gravelly, sheltered habitats, forming aggregations of lobed sorediate thalli up to c. 10–15 (rarely to c. 25) cm diameter.last_img

UCU marking boycott cancelled

first_imgThe University and College Union (UCU) has agreed to suspend a marking and assessment boycott while it enters into negotiations over pensions with Universities UK (UUK).UCU members voted in favour of industrial action after changes were made to Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS). On November 6th, UCU members stopped marking work, returning marks and setting exams and coursework.The assessment and marking boycott affected over 1.2m students. Such action is suspended until after a joint negotiating committee meeting in January 2015.In a joint statement, the UCU and UUK said, “Both parties are committed to seeking a joint proposal for reform that offers an affordable, sustainable and attractive pension scheme, for both current and future members.“Both parties are pleased that the agreement to suspend industrial action at this early stage will mean that students will not have been adversely affected and members of staff will not have had pay deducted.”Margaret Watson and Terry Hoad, respectively the curent and the former Oxford UCU Presidents, told Cherwell, “Oxford UCU is very pleased that negotiations between the Union and the employers are taking place and that in the meantime the Union has felt able to suspend the industrial action. Our members find it painfully hard to take action which threatens the academic progress of students. “It is important to understand the causes that lie behind the dispute. University salaries are not very high, in comparison with those which many university staff might earn in other occupations, and have been declining in real terms over a good many years. The assurance of a decent pension is one of the things that have in the past made staff willing to accept those less than stellar salaries.”Under the UUK’s proposed changes to the current pension scheme for university staff, a 40 year old professor who joins the scheme at 25 and retires at 66 on a salary of £75,000 stands to lose £230,251.A PPE student from Trinity remarked, “Although I respect the lecturers’ right to strike, I feel strike action ultimately affects students the worst, and with tuition fees at £9,000 we are hardly the guilty party here. I’m very happy that UCU have decided against such a course of action for now.”Other students were less than elated by the news. One stressed English finalist commented, “I’m not going to lie, I rather hoped there would be a marking boycott. Anything to give me more time on my thesis!”Watson and Hoad continued, “The fight to defend pensions remains a crucial one. We hope that through negotiations in the next few weeks agreement will be reached on acceptable adjustments to pension arrangements.“However, we have suspended but not called off the industrial action, and if the employers do not prove by 15 January that they are willing to come to an appropriate agreement with us, we will have to resume it.”last_img read more
