We call on the two leading government officials, President Robert Mugabe and the prime minister, as well as all political figures, to demonstrate respect for diversity of opinion.”On 7 June, journalist Herbert Moyo of the weekly Zimbabwe Independent, was attacked by young MDC members while covering a demonstration in the Sunningdale neighbourhood of Harare, the capital. Moyo was taking photos of demonstrators when a group of young men surrounded him and beat him. MDC spokesman Douglas Mwonzora, stepped in to end the attack.The day before, Tsvangirai bodyguards roughed up Mashudu Netsianda, a reporter for the daily Chronicle Newspaper in Bulawayo, before seizing his notebook and deleting recordings he had made on his mobile phone.In May, the prime minister himself threatened the media. “You cannot have a newspaper with six articles saying Tsvangirai this and Tsvangirai that,” he said. “Every day! Ragai vakadaro. But musi umwe gava richadambura musungo (Leave them like that, but one day the tables will be turned). That kind of media has no future in a democratic Zimbabwe. “I want to tell you this, muchadya izvozvo (you will face the music).” Reporters Without Borders expressed its concern in May about a harassment campaign against the media in the run-up to elections.Zimbabwe’s president, Robert Mugabe, has been placed on Reporters Without Borders’ list of 39 “Predators of Press Freedom” published on 3 May.For more information on press freedom in Zimbabwe.

Picture: Alan Place.LIMERICK’S high number of skilled graduates plays a key role in attracting new companies to set up operations here, according to Limerick Institute of Technology president Dr Maria Hinfelaar.Speaking at the college’s recent graduation ceremony, Dr Hinfelaar said: “We know that your employment record is good and that more and more companies are deciding to set up operations in Limerick and the wider region – a very direct influencing factor has been that they know there is a pipeline of graduates from LIT. They could have chosen to set up somewhere else, but they decided to come here.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Dr Hinfelaar said the college is “in constant communication” with various companies and was “involved at an early stage when they were weighing up the pros and cons of coming here”.“We work closely with the IDA in that regard, and we know how crucial the provision of education, training and research is in the decision-making process,” she added.More than 1,700 students graduated from LIT last week with academic awards ranging Higher Certificate through to PhD.Dr Hinfelaar encouraged graduates to become active members of the LIT Alumni Association.She said: “As well as providing strategic level support to LIT’s initiatives such as the €200 million Campus Masterplan, they open up their personal and business networks internationally for the benefit of LIT and our graduates.”LIT alumni include former Kerry Group CEO and chairman of the Mid West Task Force, Denis Brosnan, and president and founder of the Irish Technology Leadership Group in Silicon Valley, John Hartnett.

The “grounds” stated in the order are crammed with deprecating words like Scheming, hard headed, short lived marriage, Daddy’s Girl, etc.”the Impugned Detention Order is wholly based on the Impugned Dossier which is manifestly biased, slanderous and libelous against the Detenu and which no reasonable person ought to rely on for depriving a citizen of her fundamental freedoms and person liberty,” she said.She has further submitted that the foremost reason cited for continued detention, now under PSA was that the six months maximum period of detention under section 107 and 117 CrPC was expiring on the very day the Impugned Detention Order was passed, and that the Detenu had declined to sign a bond or “surety”. She pointed out that the bond contained a blanket undertaking that Mufti will not to make any comment on the recent events in the State.”This bond and surety which she was repeatedly asked to sign, the records would show,interalia included the promise that: “In case of release from detention, I will not make any comment(s) or issue statement(s) or make public speech(s) hold or participate in public assemblies related to the recent events in the State of Jammu and Kashmir, at the present time, since it has the potential of endangering the peace and tranquility and law and order in the State or any part thereof,” the plea reads.Opposing such a blanked ban on Mufti’s speech, Iltija has asserted,”On this count alone, the Detention Order should be set aside, for, preventive detention, tolerated by our polity and jurisprudence as a necessary evil, is not meant to stifle legitimate opposition to state policy.”Mufti, along with other prominent leaders of the erstwhile state of J&K was placed under preventive detention on August 5 last year, at the time of abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution. As per Section 116(6) proviso in CrPC, the same was due to expire in six months, i.e. on February 5, 2020.Iltja submitted that another reason cited in the impugned dossier was that Mufti had opposed the abrogation of Article 370 as unconstitutional. This, she asserted, clearly amounted to punishing and preventing “legitimate expression”.”The unconstitutionality of the purported abrogation of Article 370 is a common view held by many legal scholars and political scientists and many articles and writings have published taking the same view. Ex facie it is legitimate expression that is sought to be punished and prevented vide the Impugned Detention Order.… This cannot be justified as “reasonable objective basis for subjective satisfaction” as required by the statute and as interpreted by this Court in several judgments.” she said.Inter alia, she pointed out the dossier cited instances and utterances made by Mufti over the last decade without details and that the Impugned Detention Order was a “simplicitor gag order in the guise of a preventive detention order”.”the grounds are not only stale, for they refer to utterances admittedly made with no adverse consequences to law and order, but are also vitiated for non-application of mind insofar as they fail to show to why the said utterances pose a threat to public order. Other than a bald statement, not a single instance of any public disturbance has been cited. Nor is there any application of mind as to why such utterances if they contravene any law, cannot be managed by the normal criminal process,” she submitted.On this note, she asserted that there was nothing to show that Mufti had been “acting in a manner prejudicial to the maintenance of public order” and thus, the impugned order was violative of Section 8(3)(b) of the PSA and Articles 14, 19, 21 and 22 of the Constitution.With these submissions, Iltija has prayed that the impugned order be quashed and that a writ in the nature of Habeas Corpus be issued, commanding the state authorities to set Mufti at liberty.The petition also seeks appropriate compensation for Mufti for the illegal and unconstitutional detention that she has suffered. The petition has been drawn by Advocates Prasanna S and Aakarsh Kamra.

UP Panchayat Polls: Plea Before Supreme Court Challenges High Court’s Order Directing 2015 To Be Taken As Base Year For Reserving Seats

The plea has also challenged the UP government’s 17th March issued in compliance of the High Court’s order as a consequence of which, the constituency Ishapur, district Jaunpur of the petitioner which was earmarked as unreserved, has now been reserved for the Other Backward Class category.The High Court had quashed an order issued by the Uttar Pradesh government dated 11th February, dealing with the reservation of seats for various categories of candidates in the polls, taking 1995 as the base year. The petitioner, a resident of Ishapur Gram Panchayat has contended that it was not brought to the High Court’s notice that the Uttar Pradesh Panchayat Raj (Reservation and Allotment of Seats) Rules, 1994 were amended by the 11th amendment on 9th Feb 2021 and accordingly the Government order was issued.The plea has been drawn by Advocate Shariq Ahmed and filed by Advocate Sunil Kumar Verma. The petition has stated that when Panchayat elections were due in 2015, the State Govt., on the ground of reorganization of Gram Panchayats since the last elections amended the Rules 1994 through the 10th amendment by incorporating a proviso to Rules 4. The amendment provided for commencement of a new rotation ignoring the prior status of the reservation/rotation for gram panchayats in respect of each of the reserved categories.The plea has added that this led to serious anomalies due to non-implementation of reorganization in four districts of Gonda, Sambhal, Gautambudhnagar and Moradabad, as in the event of the Panchayat election being held as per the 2015 amended Rules, new reservation would have had to be made in the these four districts, whereas in rest of the 71 districts there would have been reservation of the next stage of the rotational reservation of the 2015 election.According to the petitioner, to obviate this anomalous and chaotic situation and to bring uniformity in the panchayat election, the State Govt. amended the said 1994 Rules by the 11th amendment titled ‘The Uttar Pradesh Panchayat Raj (Reservation and Allotment of Seats and Offices) (Eleventh Amendment) Rules, 2021 concerning the reservation of seats in order to ensure that no Panchayat is deprived of the benefit of reservation based on caste.The plea has stated that the High Court erroneously relied on the judgment of Supreme Court in case of Vikas Krishna Gawali Vs. State of Maharashtra. The plea has added that due to the impugned Govt. Order dated 17th March, the constituency of the petitioner which was earlier earmarked as unreserved, has now been reserved for the Other Backward Class Category.”The very object of the principle of rotation that no community or reserved category can lay claim to a reserved seat in perpetuity has been belied by this Govt. order inasmuch as several constituency which were reserved for one category would be reserved for the same category again whereas several constituency may not get the reserve status due do the principle of next descending order of population because of demographic changes after every census.” the plea has stated.The petitioner has also pointed out the anomalies in computation of percentage population of reserved category. According to the petitioner, a rapid survey was done for computation of the percentage population of the reserved category of the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and Other Backward Classes for the purposes of providing reservation to such categories on the rotational basis. The anomaly of this computation of the various constituencies of Jaunpur district is quite evident from the fact that for some of them the percentage of the Backward Class population is shown to be more than 100 percentThe Allahabad High Court had on 15th March quashed an order issued by the Uttar Pradesh government (dated 11th February) dealing with the reservation of seats for various categories of candidates for the upcoming panchayat polls, taking 1995 as the base year. The State Government had submitted before the bench of Justice Manish Mathur and Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi that it had no objection to implement the reservation and allotment of seats of constituencies in Panchayat’s elections taking 2015 as the base year.Earlier, on 12th March, the High Court had stayed the publication of the final list of seats reserved for the panchayat polls till 15th March. The High Court was hearing a PIL filed by one Ajay Kumar, who challenged the UP-State Government’s decision to take 1995 as the base year, instead of 2015, for reserving the seats for upcoming panchayat polls.Referring to the Government Order dated 16th September 2015, the Petitioner’s counsel contended that substantial demographic changes have taken place in the Districts of the State in the Gram Panchayat and Kshetra Panchayat territories in view of the census of 2001 and 2011. Thus, it was argued that it wouldn’t be conducive to have 1995 as the base year for purposes of applying reservation as per Rule 4 of Rules of 1994 and that the base year in view of the changed demographic situation was required to be taken as 2015.The High Court then directed the State to hold the elections by 10th May 2021 and indirect election by 25th May 2021. The impugned order dated 11th February 2021 was also quashed and the writ petition was allowed.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

I need advice on graduate training

first_imgI need advice on graduate trainingOn 20 Nov 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. I am in my final year studying towards a degree in HRM and expect to get a2:1. I am aware of the fierce competition in the graduate labour market, sohave started my job search early. However, I am finding the availability ofgraduate training in HR very sparse. Could you advise me of companies thatoffer a solid training programme for graduates in HR? Jo Selby, director, EJ Human Resources Some organisations offer graduate training programmes in HR, but they arefew and far between, so the competition is intense. You are wise to startsearching early, as many graduate programmes have early closing dates forapplications, many of which are pre-Christmas. Your university careers servicewould be the best place to go, as it will be able to point you in the rightdirection. A graduate training programme is not the most usual route into HR. Mostgraduates join an organisation as an HR administrator, enabling them to a gaina grounding in the function. To secure a role such as this, register withrecruitment agencies after completing your finals. In the meantime, any generaladministration experience will be beneficial. Clive Sussums, recruitment consultant, Malpas Flexible Learning You deserve praise for commencing your job search as early as possibledespite the pressures involved with your final year studies. I know from my ownexperience how difficult it is achieving this job search/study volume balancein the final degree year. The competition for graduate training places is particularly fierce thisyear due to reduction in intake by most companies and the economic situation.It will be difficult to find graduate training schemes that specifically focuson HR. Companies frequently recruit graduates with a view to resourcing rolesin various functions including HR. Many programmes will concentrate more onyour chosen specialism in the second year of employment. It would be sensible to contact all the major employers in the UK who arelikely to have well-established graduate schemes. It would also be useful tocontact medium-size FTSE 250 companies as there may be opportunities there.Companies may not have specific graduate training programmes but recruitone-off graduates for HR from time to time. Peter Lewis, consultant, Chiumento It is great that you have recognised the need to get into your job searchingearly. It is also true that a degree does not guarantee you a job, so you needto be meticulous in covering the different avenues. First stop is the “milkround” graduate selection scheme, whichinvolves larger organisations with structured programmes – both generalist andspecific to HR. Contact the careers service at your college to find out whichemployers are participating – it could even be worth applying to employersvisiting nearby colleges. Secondly, use your careers library to research organisations to write todirectly. Smaller firms often do not have a full-scale graduate recruitmentprogramme, but they may still offer training opportunities and there is likelyto be less competition for these positions than there is on the high-profilemilk-round. The CIPD is a further source of advice on formal graduate trainingprogrammes. If you have a year’s work experience as part of your degree, you could alsobe of interest to the HR recruitment consultants. Getting your first job is going to be a challenge, but you have alreadystarted well. Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

Rental market reform needs to go much further, say tenants

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Rental market reform needs to go much further, say tenants previous nextHousing MarketRental market reform needs to go much further, say tenantsResearch by online agent suggests most tenants remain dissatisfied with the way homes are rented in the UK.Nigel Lewis10th August 20170952 Views Three quarters of all tenants say banning fees should be just the start in the process of much needed rental market reform.Research by online letting agency LetBritain reveals that 67% of the 2,000 tenants it canvassed don’t believe the current government can do anything to help them get on the property ladder, and that 70% said banning letting fees was “just the tip of the iceberg” and that more should be done.Three fifths of those canvassed also believed the government still isn’t doing anything to help Generation Rent become owners, and a similar number believe the rental market is going to get more difficult over the next five years.The research also revealed that half of all tenants in London rent properties much better than they could ever afford to own. Nearly 40% of tenants outside the capital also rent higher calibre properties than they could afford to buy.Landlord tenantsLetBritain also uncovered a new breed of renter who could be a lucrative opportunity for networked agents – a quarter of those who rent said they wanted to purchase buy-to-let property outside the area they live in and get on the property ladder, but stay as tenants at their current abode.This trend is particularly prevalent in London, where 42% are aspiring landlords.“With more and more people across the UK coming to rely on the private rental sector, the results of today’s research are concerning,” says Fareed Nabir, CEO of LetBritain (pictured, left).“While many renters are working hard to enter the property market, they clearly do not feel the Government understands the issues faced by tenants.“Interestingly, the findings show that Generation Rent is now increasingly looking to buy properties outside of their chosen place of residence so they can still get onto the property ladder without having to sacrifice the location or quality of the property they wish to live in.”Generation Rent LetBritain Fareed Nabir August 10, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

She realized at an early age that in order to change her circumstance, she would have to work hard and tirelessly to find her purpose in life.After graduating from Culver Elementary, Glenwood Middle School and Harry A. Burke High School with honors, Sherman attended Bennett College for Women in Greensboro, N.C. where she received her degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.She was admitted to a number of top-tier law schools, but she accepted a scholarship to Indiana University’s Maurer School of Law in Bloomington in order to return to the Midwest. She is one of five African-American attorneys currently practicing in Evansville. Sherman works for the Indiana Department of Child Services.As State Representative, she will focus on family and children’s issues, creation of jobs that pay a living wage, preventing blight and overhaul of the ISTEP system. She will work tirelessly for the inclusion of Ivy Tech in the IU Medical Center in Evansville.More information about Sherman and her campaign will appear on Sherman’s website, www.lorisherman31-8-9.com. The web address references the Bible verse Proverbs 31: 8-9, which embodies Sherman’s passion and willingness to advocate for people.“It took a village to raise me, and I give much of the credit to Sheila Huff, Denise Strawn and Sheri Chestnut at Glenwood Middle School. They refused to give up on me, and they gave me hope. I owe them a lot. Because so many of my teachers took a special interest in me, I am obligated to make good on their investment,” she added.FOOTNOTE: This announcement was posted whithout opinion, bias or editing.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
