School Education dept assures pay protection for PG grade teachers

first_imgKolkata: The School Education department has guaranteed pay protection for the teachers who have post-graduate (PG) degree and are holding PG category post.These teachers are eligible to apply for the post of PG category if they are within the age limit of 40 years and will be entitled to get protection of their last drawn pay. A notification in this regard, undersigned by the Principal Secretary of School Education department, has been published. The matter regarding the pay protection of in-service assistant teachers appointed afresh by the West Bengal Central School Service Commission under graduate or PG category has been under active consideration of the department. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaA teachers’ organisation had met state Education minister Partha Chatterjee at the state Assembly last month, with their demand for pay protection and the minister had assured them that it was under consideration of the department. It may be mentioned that earlier the department had declared that teachers belonging to PG scale should not appear for examination again to seek transfer to a place near his/her residence. Similarly, teachers of graduate scale were also prevented to sit for examination of the same scale, but were allowed to do so for achieving PG scale. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayThe department had reasoned that with the provision of transfer to nearby places already available, such teachers need not appear for examination. However, a section of teachers had moved court challenging the order and got the nod of the court for appearing in such examinations. These teachers were recruited in their new posts by the department, but their seniority was not considered in the pay scale. They were drawing salary (initial pay) on the basis of their new post. These teachers have been pitching for pay protection and have made rounds to the Education department to press for their demand in the last few months. “The same principle of pay protection will be applicable for the teachers holding pass graduate degree and pass graduate category of post to apply for the post of pass graduate category of teachers. It will also be applicable for teachers of government-aided madrasas,” an official said.last_img read more

King Mohammed VIs African Tour in the Zambian Guinean and Ghanaian

By Julia CabreraRabat – King Mohammed VI took route to amend broken bonds and strengthen friendships across Africa starting on February 13, 2017.The tour that led him to visit Ghana, Zambia and Guinea has been well received by the African Nations. This is what other African Media Reported after the King’s recent visits:Visit to Ghana:Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo, agrees with the importance of creating a more Unified Africa, and hence fully supports a stronger relationship with Morocco that can help better the lives of his citizens, according to Ghanaian news outlet, Graphic.The President of the Ghana National Chamber of Commerce (GNCC), Nana Appiagyei Dankawoso, commended the new business agenda for building an economy, as it will create jobs and prosperity for all Ghanaians, according to Graphic.“The GNCC was engaging the Moroccan business delegation in a partnership to realize the government’s goal of ‘one district, one factory’ for industrial growth,” said the Graphic.25 cooperation agreements were signed between the two countries. According to the Ghana Business News, the King and Akufo-Addo presented each other with the highest honorary gifts of their countries to seal the bond.“All these agreements and MoU’s reflect Morocco’s unwavering commitment for the consolidation of a solidarity-based and active South-South cooperation that is one of the fundamental pillars of Moroccan foreign policy, the ultimate goal being serving the interests of African peoples,” said the MedAfrican Post.Visit to Zambia:The King’s visit to Zambia has attracted the attention of important Zambian and Moroccan CEOs and Business leaders, which according to the Lusaka Times, is going to “provide a unique and viable networking platform which will enhance private sector engagement as well as the establishment of trade links between the two countries.”The Africa Review in Kenya, said that the King’s visit to Zambia is “raising eyebrows.” political commentator McDonald Chipenzi told the Africa Review that the king’s visit is seeking to, “garner support to prevent the Sahrawi from being independent.”Zambia recently re-stated its support for the polisario, which is a known rival of Morocco.  However, despite diplomatic ties to the issue, the Lusaka Times said, “ it seems that President Edgar Lungu would rather look for fruitful deals with all African nations rather than be restricted by old ideas.”19 cooperation agreements were signed between Morocco and Zambia that project the interests of both nations.“We have missed Morocco for a long time and we are glad to find him again within its African family,” said Zambian president Edgar Lungu according to the Zambian Observer.Visit to Guinea:The King’s visit to Guinea on February 23, 2017 is the latest on his tour. He was warmly received and signed a total of 8 cooperation agreements. Guinean President Alpha Condé expressed the benefits that the relationship with Morocco brings to Guinea.According to the MedAfrica Times, the King’s meeting with Condé was mainly focused on the development of Africa and the challenges it faces, politically, economically and socially.  It reflected, “two heads of state Heads of State, who share love for Africa and hope to see their continent unleash all its potential to ensure development and wellbeing to African citizens,” they said.The King’s “South-South” agenda of continental economic growth aims to bring together the African Continent. Through bilateral cooperation and friendships, the South- South plan hopes to mold Africa into a stronger financial entity. Although the King’s agenda is in its early stages, the countries he has visited thus far are embracing his new ideals. They have opted to work towards a stronger, unified Africa, despite the diplomatic ties they have to the Western Sahara and their perspectives on the issue.Senegalese President Macky Sall, told Spanish Media La Nación , “While the topic of the Western Sahara is still pending, we can continue to find solutions as a family.”The King arrived to Côte d’Ivoire for a working visit to strengthen cooperation, on Friday, February 24, 2017. read more

Statement game for Ohio State Cincinnati

Click to enlargeWhen the Ohio State football team takes the field against the Cincinnati Bearcats, its No. 1 goal will be to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself more than nine decades later.The last time the Buckeyes lost to another Ohio school was Oct. 8, 1921, against Oberlin College. Since that 7-6 loss in Columbus, OSU has not lost in 44 tries against intrastate opponents. The last 39 of those games ended with Buckeye victories, with the one prior resulting in a tie against the College of Wooster.Despite historic dominance against other teams in the state, OSU coach Urban Meyer said he’s preparing his team for a game like any other.“I’m not worried about all that, I’ve just got to make sure our team is ready to go,” he said Wednesday. “I’ve got a lot of respect for Ohio schools.”Regardless of what his coach had to say, redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall said he thinks the game “means a lot” to the Bearcats because of OSU’s general establishment as the best college football program in Ohio.“Always being looked down upon by us, being in the same state,” Marshall said Wednesday. “Being not the best team in the state, I’m sure they’re going to give us all they got.”Meyer — who played college football at Cincinnati and coached at Bowling Green State University — said Monday that he recognizes the talent at Ohio schools outside Columbus and thinks of the Bearcats as a “Power Five” program.“I think we certainly respect them as if they are,” he said. “We’re watching film, they’re as good as a lot of the other teams that we have gone up against.”The Buckeyes — who are scheduled to take on Cincinnati on Saturday at Ohio Stadium at 6 p.m. — are 2-1 this season and coming off a bye week and a 66-0 win within the past 14 days.Before the blowout victory and extra week of rest, OSU suffered a 35-21 loss to Virginia Tech on Sept. 6 at home after needing a second-half comeback to beat Navy to open the season. Regardless of more recent success, the early season struggles — especially the loss to the Hokies — seem to have made a lasting impression on the Buckeyes.Junior offensive lineman Jacoby Boren said OSU is still “pretty angry” about the loss, and wants to turn that anger into success on the field going forward.“It’s not anything obviously that we want, and I think it kind of set something off in there,” Boren said Wednesday. “Obviously you’re not going to be happy with a loss, so it’s helped motivate us more than we already were.”While OSU has had its ups and downs early in the season, the Bearcats are riding an undefeated record into the Horseshoe. Cincinnati is 2-0 after posting a total of 89 points in wins against Toledo and Miami (Ohio).As the Bearcats close out their three-game run of intrastate matchups to start the season, coach Tommy Tuberville said his team has to be ready for “a big one up in Columbus” on Saturday, especially when taking into account the crowd expected at Ohio Stadium.“Our players will be excited about going, obviously the crowd will be the biggest crowd that most of them will ever play in front of,” Tuberville said at a Tuesday press conference.Ohio Stadium has a capacity of 104,944 while Paul Brown Stadium — where the Bearcats are playing this season — seats 65,535.Tuberville went on to say that his team performed well, but not at the top of its potential against Miami in the Bearcats’ second game of the season, and added they need to be ready for a more athletic OSU squad.“That being said, it will be (an) excellent challenge for us top to bottom, offense, defense and special teams,” he said. “(OSU) will be the fastest, biggest and quickest team we play.”High praise from the opposition aside, Marshall said the matchup with Bearcats has to be a “statement game” for the Buckeyes.“We have to come out there and play hard and play fast and play together, and I feel like we’ll come out with a win,” Marshall said Wednesday. “Cincinnati is definitely not going to give it to us.”Saturday’s matchup is set to be the 16th meeting between the two schools, with OSU holding a 13-2 record against the Bearcats. The most recent matchup — in 2006 — ended with a 37-7 OSU victory, but didn’t necessarily feature a fast start for the Buckeyes. The Bearcats came out to take a 7-3 lead in the first quarter before OSU finished the game on a 34-0 run.Click to enlargeIn that game, the Buckeyes’ defense allowed negative four yards on the ground from the Bearcats.While allowing similar numbers on the ground Saturday would certainly play into OSU’s favor, the running game isn’t the focus of the Bearcat attack.The player in the Buckeyes’ crosshairs in practice this week goes by a name that could be more fitting for an Old West hero.Redshirt-sophomore quarterback Gunner Kiel has just two collegiate games under his belt, but has already thrown for 689 yards and 10 touchdowns.“He’s a big, strong (player) and he runs pretty good when he runs,” Meyer said of Kiel.Junior defensive lineman Tommy Schutt said he and the OSU defense has found extra motivation in the success the Cincinnati signal caller has had early in the season.“We have a lot of respect for Gunner Kiel, he’s a great quarterback,” Schutt said Wednesday. “I know he’s done a great job the last couple weeks throwing the ball. Our job up front is to get after him and disrupt his game.”As Schutt and his defensive linemates prepare to put pressure on Kiel, Tuberville said the play of the OSU defense is his focus for his quarterback, more so than any other factors that come into play at Ohio Stadium, like the noise generated by 105,000 plus spectators.“I’m more concerned about the guys on the other side. Those are the ones he has to compete against,” Tuberville said.The matchup under the Horseshoe’s new permanent lighting is set to be the final non-conference game of the Buckeyes’ season.After Cincinnati, OSU is next scheduled to take on Maryland in the Terrapins’ second-ever Big Ten game Oct. 4 in College Park, Md. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

Baseball team falls in 10th to Spartans

The Ohio State baseball team (13-15, 3-4 Big Ten) took conference-leading Michigan State (22-8, 6-1 Big Ten) all nine innings and then some, but a lead-off home run in the top of the 10th was the decider as the Spartans beat OSU, 5-4. Even after the home run, OSU did not go down without a fight, as it had a chance to tie or win the game with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th. After singles by senior and freshman outfielders Brian DeLucia and Tim Wetzel, freshman first baseman Josh Dezse was intentionally walked. Two consecutive strikeouts by sophomore catcher Greg Solomon and junior DH Brad Hutton ended the game. Coach Greg Beals said OSU left too many opportunities on base. “The story was our inability to execute when we had guys in scoring position,” he said. “Our hitters could have done a better job, obviously, but you have to give their pitchers credit.” OSU looked in trouble after a three-run seventh put the Spartans up, 4-2, but Dezse responded in the eighth with a two-run home run. Dezse said he thought the home run was a turning point in the game but that his team came up just a little bit short. “We fought as a team, we lost as a team and we are going to come back tomorrow and fight back,” Dezse said. Relief pitcher Tony Wieber (4-0) picked up the win for MSU, and senior pitcher Jared Strayer (1-2) picked up his second loss on the season. Rucinski versus Wunderlich The game featured top starting pitchers for each team, and both went deep into the game. Michigan State’s Kurt Wunderlich went eight innings and gave up four runs while OSU senior pitcher Drew Rucinski went seven and a third, and also gave up four runs. It was a pitcher’s duel early before Rucinski gave up three in the seventh followed up by Wunderlich giving up a two-run home run to Dezse in the eighth. Both pitchers earned a no decision. A 1-2 punch OSU’s one and two hitters, DeLucia and Wetzel, had a combined six hits and three runs. Wetzel now has a nine-game hitting streak and has been hitting .395 since the Big Ten season started. “We got a lot of young guys that can come through,” DeLucia said. “Wetzel and Dezse are both just incredible.” Game 2 The second of the three-game series will take place at 2 p.m. Saturday. OSU will be looking to rebound from the loss and come back strong. “We are obviously going to take our emotion out on the field tomorrow,” Dezse said. “We still have two more games this weekend and we still have a chance to get that two out of three like we want.” read more

Freetoplay games coming soon to Xbox Live

first_imgIt’s a counterintuitive idea, but free is now one of the most lucrative business models in gaming.On one side of things, you have the freemium gaming movement. The idea here is to release a free game to rope players in, then promise them faster development, more gold, different weapons or better abilities if they agree to pay a marginal micro-transaction. These microtransactions are rarely very expensive, but they add up.AdChoices广告On the other side, you’ve got the gradual shift in MMOs to adopt free-to-play business models. Unable to compete with the World of Warcraft juggernaut, smaller MMO companies began to release their MMOs for free, charging players for access to higher levels, more character slots and new areas. Several MMOs previously on life support have managed to become successful and financially profitable by adopting free.In many ways, what we’re seeing now is a return to the shareware business model embraced by game companies in the early 90s: the first slice of a game was free, but the rest of the episodes would cost you.Need more proof that free is now big gaming business? The latest rumor has it that Microsoft is about to launch a free-to-play initiative for their Xbox Live online gaming service.According to IGN, certain games will be released for free “where users can then purchase additional content, such as weapons, experience points, in-game currency, and perks.” It’s all set to happen sometime in the next year.Obviously, not everyone is fond of the sudden rise in popularity of free-to-play games. A lot of people feel nickel-and-dimed, worrying that in order to compete, they’ll need to spend serious amounts of cash. The thing to remember, though, is that most games will never go free-to-play… and you only ever have to pay into a game as much as you want to take out.At the end of the day, I think free-to-play is a good thing for consumers, who are effectively being given the opportunity to pay what they think a game is worth, not just blindly pay the sticker price.Read more at Xbox Livelast_img read more

Apple va verser des royalties à Nokia

first_imgApple va verser des royalties à NokiaLe constructeur finlandais a affirmé qu’Apple allait payer pour solder les conflits qui opposent les deux géants.Nokia semble avoir eu gain de cause dans les conflits concernant l’utilisation de ses technologies brevetées par Apple. Le groupe finlandais a affirmé lundi que la firme de Steve Jobs avait accepté de lui verser des royalties pour solder cette affaire. “La structure financière de l’accord consiste en un versement unique par Apple et en des royalties qui seront payées par Apple à Nokia durant toute la durée de l’accord”, a ainsi expliqué un communiqué de Nokia relayé par l’AFP.Stephen Elop, le directeur exécutif de Nokia s’est réjoui de cette décision, non sans une certaine ironie : “Nous sommes heureux qu’Apple rejoigne le nombre grandissant de personnes adoptant les technologies Nokia… Cet accord démontre la valeur du portefeuille de brevets de Nokia”. Néanmoins, le montant de la somme qu’Apple versera dans le cadre de cet accord n’a pas été publiquement communiqué.Le 14 juin 2011 à 18:41 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

The partnership will leverage Volpara’s growing footprint in the breast imaging marketplace and will provide an opportunity for ScreenPoint to enter the U.S. market.ScreenPoint recently announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Transpara detection and decision support software, designed to assist radiologists with the reading of screening mammograms. Transpara is the first AI application for detecting breast cancer in screening mammograms to gain FDA 510(k) clearance, based on its functionality that interactively provides support for detection and diagnosis.“Compared to traditional mammography computer-aided detection (CAD) products, ScreenPoint’s decision support product Transpara delivers much more clinically useful information to the radiologist,” said Ritse Mann, M.D., Ph.D., breast imaging specialist at Radboud University Medical Center, Nijmegen, Netherlands, who uses the system clinically and evaluated its performance in several studies, “I can use Transpara as a second reader and its opinion is as good as when I would ask a colleague.”For more information:, FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.
