DU reviews sports quota admissions

first_imgDU’s centralised sports quota trials are in trouble.A year after Delhi University (DU) introduced a centralised process of admission to seats under sports quota, the policy is up for a review already.Sources say DU is rethinking the process and is keen on yet another change in the way students are admitted at the undergraduate level through the sports quota.The chaos and trouble caused to the applicants amid the pitched battle between the affiliated colleges and the university in 2010, is the main reason that has inspired a rethink this year.”We introduced central trials for sports admission with the intention of ensuring transparency and reducing inconvenience to students who had to run from pillar to post in a bid to participate in trials of different colleges. But with the colleges refusing to toe the line, there was complete chaos and students suffered the most,” a senior university official said.”This change in policy did not have the benefits we expected from it,” the official added.The new chairman of the sports council J. M. Khurana – who is also the new dean of students’ welfare – has already held four meetings with physical education teachers of north and south campuses over the last three months for their feedback on last year’s sports trials.In 2010, DU changed the admission criteria under sports quota to quite an extent by conducting common trials for all colleges. In other words, there was a common calendar for trials unlike in the past when different trial dates coincided causing inconvenience to students. The weightage given to merit certificates and trials was in the ratio of 75: 25. Earlier, an equal weightage was provided to both.advertisementColleges were irked with the change as central trials do not provide candidates according to specific team needs. They were also unhappy over the exclusion of physical education teachers when the decision was taken.Students, as a result, felt the heat as there was no proper dissemination of information and several colleges continued to conduct their individual trials even as the university forbade them to do so. “We will try to evolve a method through which the participation of the colleges as far as selecting candidates is much larger this time,” the official said.Teachers, however, want the university to go back to the old ways. “We need people according to team requirements. We need the autonomy to select our own candidates,” Jai Inder Pal Singh, physical education teacher of Hindu College, said.last_img read more

Credit: Nick Hudak | For The LanternThe No. 7 Ohio State men’s hockey team split its Big Ten opener with No. 5 Notre Dame after dropping the second game of the road series 2-1.Ohio State (4-3-1, 1-1) shutout Notre Dame (4-3-1, 1-1) in the first game of the series 1-0 and led or tied most of the game Saturday night before a late goal by the Fighting Irish sealed the 2-1 victory for Notre Dame.After a scoreless first period featuring 13 shots by each team, senior forward Mason Jobst tallied the first goal of the game in the second period with assists by junior forward Carson Meyer and senior forward Freddy Gerard.The Fighting Irish quickly tied it up minutes later with an even-strength goal by sophomore forward Colin Theisen.A scoring drought took place for the rest of the second period and well into the third before Notre Dame senior forward Joe Wegwerth scored the eventual game-winning goal with just under seven minutes remaining.Ohio State didn’t convert on either of its two power play attempts of the night but killed every penalty they gave Notre Dame, an improvement on the previously lackluster special teams that plagued the Buckeyes through the first part of their season.The Buckeyes tried to tie the game with what time they had left, bringing sophomore goaltender Tommy Nappier out of the net with around a minute remaining, but their comeback effort fell short.Nappier allowed two goals and saved 36 shots in his fourth start in the net this season.The Buckeyes will stay on the road next weekend against Colgate, with the puck dropping on Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 4 p.m. read more

Hazard is better than Ronaldo – Rudiger

first_imgThe only player better than Eden Hazard is Barcelona ace Lionel Messi, claims Chelsea teammate Antonio RudigerThe 27-year-old winger has carried over his strong form with Belgium at this summer’s World Cup to Chelsea in their opening games of the 2018/19 season.Hazard has contributed four goals in as many Premier League games.But, despite his consistent displays for Chelsea over the years, Hazard has been consistently overlooked for the Ballon d’Or award by both Messi and Ronaldo.Although Rudiger now believes that Hazard has surpassed the latter in terms of all-round game.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.Asked about Kylian Mbappe following Germany’s goalless draw with France last week, Rudiger said on the Daily Mail: “He is unbelievably fast, really good.“To stop him, you have to do it as a team, because alone … good luck!

Missing Children Down

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, Sept. 3 (JIS): The Office of the Children’s Registry (OCR) is reporting a decline of 19 per cent in the number of children reported missing for the period January to June 2014, when compared to the corresponding period in 2013. This was disclosed by Registrar of the OCR, Greig Smith, during a press conference held at the Office of the Prime Minister, on September 3. Mr. Smith noted that despite the decline, the OCR is mindful that there is still a lot of work to be done, to ensure that children remain in their homes and feel secure being there. “The fact that fewer children are going missing means our messages are having an impact. However, we remain conscious of the fact that we must work assiduously to improve the rate of recovery of missing children,” he said. Mr. Smith also informed that preliminary data indicate that 11,018 reports of child abuse were received by the OCR for the period January to December 2013, representing an increase of 26 per cent over the 2012 period. “Of the reports received, 8,679 represented children who were being reported on for the first time. Of this amount, 57 per cent were girls, 41 per cent were boys, while the gender for the remaining 2 per cent was not specified,” he said. He noted that neglect was the most common report received by the OCR throughout 2013, representing 48 per cent of all reports, and that the other categories which featured high were reports of children in need of care and protection and children who were sexually abused, which accounted for 39 and 30 per cent, respectively.Mr. Smith said that with the exception of trafficking, which remained unchanged compared to 2012, increases were observed in all types of reports, ranging from 20 to 53 per cent.“Reports of child labour (increasing by 53 per cent), led the increases in the types of reports received. There were 319 reports of child labour for 2013, compared to 209 reports recorded in 2012. Reports of children exhibiting behavioural problems and those in need of care and protection were featured in the top three percentage increase in the types of abuse reported over the period, registering increases of 44 per cent and 40 per cent, respectively,” he noted.He also informed that reports on the other major types of abuse, such as physical, emotional and neglect saw an average increase of 22 per cent in 2013.In terms of missing children, 984 children were reported missing for the period January to June 2014 (222 boys and 762 girls), and of this amount, 614 have since returned. However, two of the missing children were found dead and 368 are still missing.Meanwhile, in order to improve the rate of recovery for missing children, the Office of the Children’s Registry initiated search and rescue training across the island on a phased basis, beginning with the parishes of St. Thomas, St. Catherine, St. Ann, Trelawny and St. James between April and July this year.The participants trained included nurses, educators, ministers of religion, guidance counsellors, children’s officer, fire personnel, parish disaster coordinators, civil servants, probation officers, members of the judiciary as well as representatives from various non-governmental and community-based organisations.Mr. Smith also informed that the OCR will be printing and distributing 3,000 copies of search and rescue protocol manuals, developed to provide guidance in finding missing children.These manuals will be disseminated in schools, residential child care facilities, government ministries, departments and agencies, private sector companies, among others, and will also be available for download on our website at www.ocr.gov.jm, following a workshop that will be held to launch the document,” he said.For her part, OCR Child Ambassador for Region Four (St. James), Suzanna Hyde, said that children have a critical role to play in the fight against child abuse and missing children.She urged that children should refuse to divulge private information, such as home address and telephone numbers to others without their parents’ consent. To make a report of a missing child, persons can call the OCR at1-888-PROTECT (776-8328) or Police at 119.
