In many places, colleges and educational institutions have been converted to quarantine centres.”Universities need to keep the local situation at mind before deciding to conduct the exams”, he submitted before a bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhsuhan, R Subhash Reddy and M R Shah.Even as per the latest ‘unlock’ guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs on July 29, activities that won’t be permitted include schools, colleges and coaching institutions. The MHA has prohibited States/Union Territories from diluting the restrictions but has allowed them to increase additional restrictions. In such a scenario, how could the UGC issue directions for holding exams, asked Divan.”Nowhere does the UGC state that there has been an improvement in the health system or if there’s a new containment method”, he said after referring to the fact that the UGC itself has said that health of the students should be given paramount importance.Divan: Now we have a letter and a PIB Press Release, as well as the affidavit of the Central Govt. Divan refers to the instructions and how the guidelines of the MHA cannot be diluted under any circumstance. @anubha1812 #StudentsInSCForJustice #31StudentsInSCAgainstUGC— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 14, 2020UGC cannot override the Disaster Management AuthorityDivan submitted that the UGC guidelines are subordinate to the directions issued by the Disaster Management Authority (The State Disaster Management Authority of Maharashtra has issued a direction to cancel final term exams in view of the rising COVID-19 cases. The UGC has taken a stand that SDMA cannot interfere with the conduct of examinations).He stressed that in a situation of a disaster, the directions of the DMA takes precedence, and no other authority can dilute the same.”…once you have a disaster going on where you’ve elevated the right to life, you cannot have an authority coming in and saying that they will dilute the restrictions!”, he said.”On 29 April, confirmed cases was 1137. You couldn’t hold the exams then. How would you have them now, with lakhs of cases? The pandemic is only increasing in intensity”, he said.He added that if exams could not have been held in May, they cannot be held now also.Divan: Students are a homogenous class. You cannot say that the lives of 3rd year students are less than that of a 1st year or a 2nd year student. @anubha1812 #StudentsInSCForJustice #31StudentsInSCAgainstUGC @advocate_alakh— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 14, 2020[Breaking] ‘How Can There Be Exams Without Teaching? UGC Directions Arbitrary’: Singvhi Seeks Cancellation Of Exams Students are a homogenous classHis next submissions were in reference to the UGC exempting all students other than final semester students from the requirement of taking exams. The students of intermediate years/semesters are to be given promotion based on their past performance and internal examinations.In this regard, Divan submitted that students form a “homogeneous class” as regards risk of COVID-19, and there cannot be discrimination based on the year in which they are in.Divan: Teachers and invigilators are also a homogenous class. Their health and their lives are also important. It doesn’t matter which class or which semester you teach. @anubha1812 #StudentsInSCForJustice #31StudentsInSCAgainstUGC @advocate_alakh— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 14, 2020″Many students live with their families. With their grandparents and their parents. The students might not show symptoms, but they will come in contact with their families. Please have some concern for them”, he pleaded.Thousands of containment zoneHe further highlighted that there are thousands of containment zones across the country.”There are thousands of containment zones. There are sudden lockdowns being imposed. This is not a small exclusive exam, this is across the country. All streams of students will have to give this exam. Many students do not have access to technology. Where is the UGC’s sensitivity and flexibility? “He urged the bench to “look at the anxiety that the students must be going through”.After Divan concluded his arguments, the bench adjourned further hearing till next Tuesday (August 18).Earlier, Senior Advocate Dr Abhishek Manu Singhvi had made submissions for one of the petitioners, Yash Dubey (read the report of his submissions here).Complete updates from the SC hearing may be read here Next Story
NZ Herald 9 October 2019Family First Comment: Conservative lobby group Family First is campaigning firmly against the legislation and its national director, Bob McCoskrie, called the situation “disgraceful”. “It’s highly controversial from both sides, so why shut that down? It’s a major change,” he said. “I think it’s patronising they can determine which submission they can hear, when you’re blocking doctors, lawyers, Pasifika leaders.” He said he believed the committee was rushing though what was a significant issue.Opponents of proposed abortion legislation say too many submitters are being turned away by a Parliamentary committee hearing public submissions on the changes.But the committee’s chair says every voice that needs to be heard will be.The Abortion Legislation Bill, which would allow women access to abortions until 20 weeks’ pregnancy without having to go through current legal loopholes, overwhelmingly passed its first reading in Parliament by 94 votes to 23 in August.A special Select Committee taking public input on the bill on Wednesday announced it had received more than 25,000 written submissions.By comparison, the End of Life Choice Bill – legalising voluntary euthanasia – received a record 35,000 submissions last year, while same-sex marriage legislation in 2012 garnered 22,000.The committee has now confirmed it will be hearing 150 submissions orally, out of 2890 who asked to speak.Conservative lobby group Family First is campaigning firmly against the legislation and its national director, Bob McCoskrie, called the situation “disgraceful”.“It’s highly controversial from both sides, so why shut that down?

Safety Aaron Henry intercepted quarterback Jon Budmayr in practice Saturday and nearly scored.[/media-credit]If spring football can be used as any sort of barometer for where the Wisconsin Badgers’ personnel stand, one fact stood out as Saturday’s practice came to a close.The offense has a ways to go in catching up to the defense.In a practice with live tackling and situational scrimmaging, Wisconsin’s No. 1 offense started out hot, scoring touchdowns on its first two drives and covering 60 yards on both occasions.Then the defense clamped down.The second-team offense never managed to score a touchdown, and the first-teamers only got one more score when running back James White broke away on a run and took it to the house from 45 yards out.Otherwise, the defense contained the running game and shut down the passing attack.Quarterback CompetitionWith Joe Brennan routinely struggling to lead the No. 2 offense, Jon Budmayr has never been threatened during spring ball as the No. 1 starter.Yet, Budmayr has done little to cement his status as starter heading into the fall with quarterback Curt Phillips returning from injury.Budmayr tossed two more interceptions Saturday – against one touchdown – and missed several open receivers.During two attempts at a red zone drill, the No. 1 offense was unable to put the ball in the end zone, with Budmayr watching three of his passes fall incomplete. He avoided having any passes blocked at the line for the first practice all spring, but still forced too many balls into tight windows.On his first interception, Budmayr failed to look off safety Aaron Henry, who had a chance to return the pick for a touchdown if the coaches hadn’t blown the play dead.Red Zone RespectDefensive coordinator Chris Ash admitted this spring he is trying to instill a sense of swagger into his guys on “D.” If someone makes a big play, he wants them to celebrate it.Never was this more apparent than when the No. 1 defense and offense matched up for a two-minute drill. While the offense moved the ball down to the three-yard line after broken coverage allowed tight end Brian Wozniak to get free for a big gain, the defense clamped down from there.On second down, Budmayr tossed a well-placed fade route to receiver Jeff Duckworth, who managed to get both hands on the ball before being crushed by Devin Smith. The senior cornerback immediately got up after breaking up the pass and stood over Duckworth talking smack.One play later, the defense converged in the middle to keep running back Montee Ball just short of the end zone as time ran out on the two-minute clock. They left the field celebrating and chest bumping.Injury ReportFullback Bradie Ewing and linebacker Kevin Claxton both sat out Saturday, though both supposedly with minor injuries to shoulder and ribs, respectively. … Phillips did not suit up at all for the first time this spring, though that may have been because most of the practice was spent doing live work with few non-contact drills. … Jacob Pedersen got rolled up on the back of his legs and was taken off the field to have his right ankle taped up and iced. He did not return but was able to walk around on his own power.Mental MistakesAfter a season spent building a well-deserved reputation as an offense that didn’t shoot itself in the foot, the Badgers were well out of sorts Saturday.The No. 2 offensive line was hit with at least five holding penalties and at one point false-started two plays in a row.White lost a fumble to start a drive – curiously enough, it was Joel Stave’s one series with the No. 1 offense – and took a lap to pay the price.The little things that made such a big difference for the offense last season held them back Saturday.
