A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Aravind Kumar while hearing a batch of petitions regarding medical facilities for covid-19 patients in the state, said “Several aspects will have to be gone into by State level and other committees, such as availability of transportation, availability of treatment and medicine at hospitals, covid care centres. Maintenance of hygiene, quality of food served etc. It will be appropriate if the member secretary of the committee places on record the protocol which will be followed by it. The State level Committee can lay down protocol for other committees. So that there is uniformity in functioning.” The Supreme Court in its order of June 19 had directed states to constitute an expert committee of doctors to monitor the hospital and other facilities dealing with Covid-19 patients. The state government in its written submission informed the court that in the state level expert committee, President of a well-recognized NGO, constituted with the objective of developing community health; and (b) the Director of the International Institute of Information Technology, Bengaluru, a registered not-for-profit society funded jointly by the Government of Karnataka and the IT industry under a public private partnership model are added. Death Certificate. On the issue of cause of death being included in death certificate issued by the BBMP to relatives of covid-19 patients or suspected covid-19 patients, the bench said “The state government must issue clarification on the issue and ensure that the medical certificates issued as per Form 4 (Death in Hospital) or Form 4A (Death of a person at any other place) under the Karnataka Registration of Births and Deaths Rules, unnecessarily don’t mention the fact that the deceased person was infected with Covid-19.” The bench observed that “Why do you (state) want to maintain a record of people who died due to Covid-19, this aspect infringes the Right to Privacy,” it said. On the issue of facilities provided to Pourakarmikas: Advocate Clifton Rozario informed the court that the BBMP is not conducting regular COVID-19 tests on the sanitation workers and even PPE kits are not provided. He claimed that on a visit to mustering centers it was found that only Rapid Antigen Tests were conducted on pourakarmikas and if they tested negative they immediately resumed duty. However, the counsel for the BBMP, refuted the claim and said both tests are being conducted on them to find if they are infected by the virus. The bench directed the BBMP to place on record details of test conducted-regular covid test and Rapid antigen test. Provide details of people tested positive on the next date of hearing, July 6. The state government also directed the state government to consider whether it can increase the insurance amount for pourakarmikas and other sanitation workers on par with the Central Government scheme. Under the Central Government insurance scheme the workers are eligible for a cover of Rs 50 lakh while under the state insurance scheme the cover is for Rs 30 lakh. The bench said “The State must consider enhancing the amount under its scheme to Rs 50 lakh and make it on par with the Central Government scheme. State must expeditiously take a decision on this.” The court will continue hearing the matter on July 6. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Harris got hate message after Ohio State loss

first_imgHarris did not divulge exactly what was written or the sender’s identity. He said he could not recall if the tweet contained any threats, and his Twitter account was deleted last week.It’s far from the first time that racially insensitive comments have been directed toward Harris, who is Black.No. 19 Miami (1-1) visits Pittsburgh (1-1) on Thursday night. Harris threw four interceptions, matching a career-worst, in Miami’s 36-24 loss to Ohio State Sept. 11.Harris used Twitter to apologize to fans for that performance, and said he skipped through many of the messages he received because they were mainly negative.“You see some things and you get kind of hurt, because sometimes it’s your fans that say the things,” Harris said. “It’ll be the ones that probably just before the game wrote you some encouraging message, then after the game say they don’t want a Black quarterback here. Stuff like that.”Miami coach Randy Shannon told The Associated Press that the Twitter ban had “nothing” to do with the comment Harris received. Later, Shannon added that while it was “disappointing” that Harris was the subject of such reaction, the coach—a Miami native and Miami graduate—said he believes the school has “a tremendous fan base.”“It’s sad that Jacory would be exposed to those types of statements. They have no place in our society and are not tolerated at the University of Miami,” Shannon said.Miami is the only BCS school in the country with Black coaches for football (Shannon) and men’s basketball (Frank Haith).Harris said he’s trying to center his energies around getting ready for Pittsburgh, not on the anonymous comments from fans, whether it was of the positive or negative variety.“It is disheartening. It’s something that you look it and it kind of brings you to tears, a little bit,” Harris said. “But at the same time, you know it’s just a comment. Nothing else will be taken after that. There will be no steps taken after that. That’s his opinion. That’s that person’s opinion. Got to live with it.” by Tim ReynoldsCORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP)—Miami quarterback Jacory Harris said he received at least one racially motivated hate message following the Hurricanes’ loss to Ohio State Sept 11.Harris said he received at least one comment on Twitter from someone saying the Hurricanes should not have “a Black quarterback,” making the revelation five days after the school told its football players to discontinue using the social messaging site.

Flickr Co-Founder Unveils Glitch: “The Greatest Game There Ever Was?”

first_imgIn The Minds of GiantsThe game, Butterfield told us, “takes place in the minds of these giants that are walking along and singing and humming the world into existence” – a reference to aboriginal myths of the world’s creation. This backbone gives the whole game a flexibility that seems to be key, both in the experience of the game as well as the game-play itself. “If you’re in someone’s imagination, even the rules can change to a certain extent based on location,” Butterfield said, noting that games visual and aural design will change throughout.Calling the game an “emerging collaborative situation,” Butterfield said that the players would really create the game’s dynamics as they went along.“The social, economic and political structures that people evolve will change the direction of the game,” he told us. “You can have a supply and demand economy.”But on it’s most base level, the game is still a puzzle-based side-scroller, with some interesting new potential.Where Will It Go?One of the things we’re immediately wondering about is the connections with social media made available by a Web-based platform. Already, the public beta testing sign-up offers a connection with Facebook Connect. The brief FAQ on the site hints at the social nature of the game, reading “We’ll make it easy for you to find [your friends]. And since it is all one big world, there are no worries about who is on what server.” This could be a big leap from other MMORPGs, like World of Warcraft, where you have to chose a server, only to later find out that half your friends are on this server, while half your friends are on different servers and you can’t play together. In addition to the potential for social interaction, such as tweeting your in-game location – one example offered by Butterfield – Glitch also provides an API that will allow for even more extra-game interaction and expandability. The game’s development in Java and Javascript “means we’ll be able to push new content — new items, new places, new characters — on a daily basis,” states the FAQ. “It also means that we’ll have lots of APIs with which the game can be expanded and extended.”For now, get there quick and sign up for private alpha testing, which starts soon. Public beta testing will begin this summer. Flickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield and his company Tiny Speck have come out today with a game they boldly assert could be “the greatest game there ever was”. The massively-multiplayer, Web-based Flash game was unveiled this morning and will be opening for private alpha testing soon.While the game will not be fully open to the public until late in 2010, the current site not only gives us a preview of what Tiny Speck has been working on, but offers a way for you to keep track of what’s new and sign up to be one of the game’s testers.What’s Your GlitchFirst, let’s get the name out of the way: Related Posts mike melanson 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…center_img 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout It’s called Glitch because in the far-distant and totally-perfect future, the world starts becoming less and less probable, things fall apart, the center cannot hold, and there occurs what comes to be called the “glitch” — a grave danger of disemprobablization.We had a chance to talk with Butterfield this morning about what to look forward to and the game he described was certainly something different. Though he says they haven’t determined the pricing structure and are now just halfway through development, the game will primarily be free, with additional features and in-game goods available for purchase.Glitch, from the looks of the preview video, looks like a standard side-scroller game with a Flash look that will be appropriate for all ages. As the FAQ states, the only thing you’ll be killing in this game is your time. Butterfield said that, from the beginning, they were looking at creating an “something that’s non-violent, a little bit more absurd and surreal.” Tags:#gaming#news#web 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex…last_img read more

Austin Cook wins at Sea Island, earns trip to Masters

first_imgHowever, Spaun bogeyed No. 17 when he failed to get up-and-down from a greenside bunker, and Cook birdied No. 15 with a 4-footer and No. 17 with a 15-footer to seal the victory.Spaun’s birdie at No. 16 could have put him into a tie for the lead but he missed a 4-foot birdie attempt on the previous hole.“That (Spaun’s miss at No. 15) was big,” said Cook, who said he’s an obsessive leaderboard-watcher and knew exactly when Spaun had come within a shot.Cook, who has Gay’s former caddie, Kip Henley, carrying his bag, never slipped after a bogey at the second hole, just his second of the week. He missed only two fairways in the final round and made par after four of his five missed greens. He led the field in scrambling, converting 11 of 12 pars after missing greens, and tied for fourth by hitting 48 of 56 fairways.“With Kip on the bag, he was able to keep me in the moment and keep me pressing instead of playing conservative,” Cook said. “There was a lot of stuff going on, mostly up here (tapping his head). My ball-striking was great and for the most part, my putting was great.

With the wind and those conditions, a lot could happen.”Cook birdied three of his last four holes after the three-shot lead he began the day with slipped to one over Spaun.

first_imgRoma president Pallotta admits no holds barred Monchi meetingby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAS Roma president James Pallotta admits he’s had a no holds barred meeting in Boston with sports director Monchi.Roma are currently struggling in seventh position.“We had a very productive three days together in Boston discussing both the football and business activities of the club,” said Pallotta.“It goes without saying that no one at the club is happy with the results and performances so far this season and we had an open and honest conversation about issues that we need to address and improve as a matter of urgency to get our season back on track.“There was a lot of straight talking and everything was put on the table. Our only goal now is to do better in everything we do and we will work on that together – from me, our board, our management team, Monchi, Di Francesco, our football operations staff, the players and all the staff.“Together we haven’t met the very high expectations we have set for ourselves – and have tried to deliver on in recent seasons – and that must improve. Together we are working to address that.“If anyone at the club is not committed to being part of a team effort, there’s no place for them here.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
