Govt should bear additional cost of maternity leave: MSME body

first_imgNew Delhi, Aug 25 (PTI) Anticipating rising cost of women employees, the Federation of Small and Medium Enterprises (FISME) is set to ask the government to bear additional cost after the 12th week of paid maternity leaves.The Rajya Sabha has already passed the maternity benefit Bill, which seeks to increase paid maternity leave from the existing 12 weeks to 26 weeks. The Bill is expected to be passed by the Lok Sabha in the Winter Session due in next three months. “The apprehension is quite real. The impact will be quite negative and lead to further gender bias. The social security cost is quite high plus we are imposing more cost on the small firms (by increasing maternity leave),” FISME Secretary General Anil Bhardwaj told PTI.”Maternity leaves for women are important, but government should bear the cost if it wants that special privilege to be given to a section of society. Small firms may not be able to bear the cost. So, they will naturally shy away from hiring women once the law kicks in.” The Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Bill, 2016, was passed by the Rajya Sabha earlier this month, in a step aimed at benefiting about 1.8 million women in the organised sector and increasing the strength of women workforce. The new law will be applicable to all establishments employing 10 or more people. The amendments include increasing maternity leave from 12 weeks to 26 weeks for mothers with two surviving children, 12 weeks for more than two children, 12 weeks for a commissioning and adopting mother and a mandatory creche in respect of establishment with 50 or more employees.advertisement”The additional benefits may have an effect on the hiring of female married employees in micro, small and medium organisations,” said Sidharth Goel, Director, KNG Agro. “Establishment of creche, fully-paid 26 weeks of leave are really difficult to adhere to for a small organisation having a tight budget as the amendment will increase institutional cost and require engaging substitute staff to ensure business continuity,” said Rajendra Garg, Director, Anupam Sinks Pvt. The estimated contribution of the MSME sector, including the service segment, to the countrys GDP in 2012-13 was 37.54 per cent while the total employment in the sector is 805.24 lakh and the share of MSMEs in Indias total exports for 2014-15 stood at 44.7 per cent.

I-League: Real Kashmir draw 2-2 with Indian Arrows in Bhubaneswar

first_imgDebutant Real Kashmir on Sunday continued their unbeaten run with a 2-2 draw against Indian Arrows to leave the I-League title race tantalising poised in Bhubaneswar.After 75 minutes of goalless football, suddenly the match sprung into life as four goals were scored in the final 15 minutes of regulation time at the Kalinga Stadium.Indian Arrow’s Amarjit Singh (78th minute) found the target from the penalty spot before Kofi Tetteh (82nd) restored the parity for Real Kashmir from a well-taken corner by Vicky Meitei.Mason Robertson (90th), who was lurking in for long, then earned the lead for the visitors only to lose it within 60 seconds when Rahul KP headed an Anwar Ali corner home.Following the result, Real Kashmir FC took the second spot on the table with 33 points from 17 matches, while Indian Arrows reclaim the seventh spot with 18 points from 19 matches.The Srinagar-based team is still four points away from table-toppers Chennai City (37) with just one match to go. Real Kashmir FC now face East Bengal at home in their last outing.Chennai, on the other hand, still have two matches to play — one against Mohun Bagan and other against Churchill Brothers.Real Kashmir will hope to receive full points from their match against defending champion Minerva Punjab, who had pulled out citing security concerns following the Pulwama terror attack which left 40 CRPF jawans dead.Minerva had asked AIFF to postpone the game which the governing body refused, prompting the team to approach the High Court. AIFF has referred the matter to its I-League Committee and a decision on it is pending.advertisementIn the match, Arrows coach Floyd Pinto made as many as seven changes from their last game against Gokulam Kerala FC handing Boris, Narender, Suresh, Ninthoi, Akash and Rohit Danu another start in the ongoing I-League.Moreover, he opted to bring Lovepreet Singh replacing Prabhsukhan Gill under the woodwork.On the other hand, Real Kashmir coach David Robertson didn’t feel to tweak his strategies having fielded the same starting eleven.The yellow outfit could have taken an early lead in the 19th minute through Danish Farooq but the 22-year-old attacker blew it over the crossbar.Four minutes later, the visitors came very close to opening the scoreline once again from Surchandra’s corner. The corner landed deep in the penalty box and it was laid off to Bazie whose feeble touch was cleared off by Lovepreet comfortably.Mason, the usual centre-back, was deployed a bit up by the gaffer in their quest to breach the Arrows defence and he outran Sanjiv in the left flank only to see his effort hit the side-netting.After the half-hour mark, Arrows started to show some urgency but the lack of penetration failed the youngsters till the end.Rohit Danu turned and collected the ball inside the box following a melee but his toe-poke sailed over the woodwork in the 39th minute.Two minutes later, Amarjit put in another delicious pass to Rohit but he miscued the opportunity to let the chance go.Amarjit continued to dictate the midfield and rolled a dangerous delivery directed to Boris inside the Real Kashmir penalty box but the lanky goalie Bilal Khan valiantly jumped on his feet to avert the danger.Arrows could have witnessed a splendid goal when Ninthoi hoodwinked it over Mason to rush into the 18-yard-box but eventually, squandered the opportunity.Rahim Ali won a penalty in the 75th minute when his powerful effort from outside the box hit Ravanan’s hand and the referee didn’t hesitate to award the youngsters a spot-kick.Skipper Amarjit slotted it calmly past Bilal Khan to send the Arrows dugout into a delirium.The Srinagar-based outfit changed the gear immediately and finally, they got the elusive goal in the 82nd minute.Vicky Meitei’s corner dipped near the goal and Abednedo Tetteh, who replaced Krizo, leapt high to find the back of the neck.After netting the equaliser, David Robertson instilled more legs inside the opponent box to net the winner and none but his son stunned the Arrows minutes later.Vicky Meitei, the craftsman of the first goal, floated a long ball from the wing to Katebe. After the defender mistimed it, Mason volleyed it home to take the lead.Their joy was cut short by super-sub Rahul KP who did no mistake to score from a copybook header goal from Anwar Ali’s well-taken free-kick in the first minute of the added time to leave the ground with a point from their final home fixture of season.advertisementIndian Arrows will clash with Mohun Bagan on February 28.Also Watch:last_img read more

The Indian had to virtually climb up the obstacle as he was blocked by the Ethiopian, thereby losing crucial time.Sable then made an impressive recovery towards the end but it was not enough for a place in the final on a track where he had won a silver in April in the Asian Championships with a time of 8:30.19.Avinash included in finals after India’s successful appeal@kaypeem @StanByMe28 @rahuldpawar @BhutaniRahulAthletics Federation of India (@afiindia) October 1, 2019The Athletics Federation of India later filed an appeal, saying that Sable was blocked twice during the race, and he got a favourable decision.advertisement”We filed an appeal and we have got a favourable decision.

Privacy concerns rehashed at Sidewalk Labs consultation

first_imgTORONTO — People at a public meeting to discuss plans for a high-tech neighbourhood on Toronto’s waterfront rehashed their concerns over privacy today.Since the partnership between Waterfront Toronto and Google-affiliated Sidewalk Labs was announced in October 2017, the proposal has been marred by questions over how data will be collected, kept, accessed and protected.Waterfront Toronto’s chief development officer Meg Davis says more detail, including data governance, will be included in a master draft of the project which she says will be completed in January 2019.But she says the draft will only be available to Sidewalk Labs, Waterfront Toronto and three levels of government to ensure it abides by policies and regulations before it is made public.Bianca Wylie, who co-founded Tech Reset Canada and has openly criticized the project’s public consultation processes, says she believes the draft should be made public immediately to ensure transparency on how decisions are being made on the project moving forward.Davis says the draft will not be made public immediately so that people won’t get their “hopes up” about aspects of the project that may not be approved.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Ethnic Cleansing Under Way in South Sudan UN

Rabat – UN human rights experts on Thursday said “ethnic cleansing” was under way in South Sudan.“There is already a steady process of ethnic cleansing underway in several areas of South Sudan using starvation, gang rape and the burning of villages; everywhere we went across this country we heard villagers saying they are ready to shed blood to get their land back,” said Yasmin Sooka of the UN Commission on Human Rights in South Sudan.“Many told us it’s already reached a point of no return.” Sooka was part of a three-member team which travelled to battleground towns including Bentiu, Malakal and Wau to gather facts about the situation in the world’s youngest country.Jarring testimony gathered by the team during their 10-day visit shows a nation on the brink of “catastrophe”, said a statement issued by the commission.“The stage is being set for a repeat of what happened in Rwanda and the international community is under an obligation to prevent it,” said Sooka.South Sudan’s current conflict began nearly three years ago when President Salva Kiir accused his former deputy and political rival, Riek Machar, of plotting a coup.Hopes that an August 2015 peace deal would bring peace to the young nation were dashed when fighting erupted in Juba in July, leading to a surge of violence around the country characterised by divisions between the country’s 64 tribes.“The scale of rape of women and girls perpetrated by all armed groups in South Sudan is utterly unacceptable and is frankly mind boggling,” said Sooka. Sooka said that many of the warning signals of impending genocide are already there.“An existing conflict, resort to polarised ethnic identities, dehumanisation, a culture of denial, displacement based on ethnicity and in some places indications of systematic violations and planning — but the important thing is there is still time to prevent it,” she said. read more

Sulking Cong goes into silent mode

first_imgCompletely rattled by the total rout suffered in Delhi Assembly polls, the Congress on Tuesday even refused to hold its daily briefing with media-persons. Instead a statement from party president Sonia Gandhi was issued which said that the party accepts “the will of the people with humility” and would “sincerely introspect the reasons behind its loss.”After being completely decimated in Delhi, Congress’ campaign in-charge Ajay Maken and Delhi’s in-charge PC Chacko resigned from their respective posts. Maken along with other 69 Congress candidates was defeated in the election. “I believe I should take responsibility and therefore resign. I was face of the Congress campaign and haven’t been able to win the seat which I contested in as well. This result has nothing to do with party leadership,” Maken told reporters.

This was clear mandate for Kejriwal and a strong anti-Modi sentiment where Congress was rendered irrelevant.”last_img read more

The system can resolve anatomy as small as 150 microns and is designed to provide more than twice the resolution, typically seen only in cath labs. Containing an all-new detector as well as tube, gantry and reconstruction technologies, the system may make it possible to help expand visualization of disease thanks to new features that offer improved image detail.  The Aquilion Precision CT system emphasizes dose efficiency with detector channels that are only 0.25 mm thick. This, combined with substantial improvements in scintillator quantum efficiency, detector circuitry and other DAS components, results in a dose-efficient detector with ultra-high resolution capabilities. The system features resolution never before seen in CT imaging, according to Canon, with what it calls the industry’s smallest Focal Spot Tube at 0.4 mm x 0.5 mm and the industry’s first routine 1024 x 1024 Reconstruction Matrix.Read more about this CT system in the article “Advances in Cardiac Imaging Technologies at RSNA 2017.”Read a related 2018 article “New Cardiovascular CT Technology Entering the Market.”For more information: www.us.medical.canon Videos | AAPM | July 29, 2019 VIDEO: Trends in Medical Physics at the AAPM 2019 meeting … read more Videos | Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEOS | EP LAB | JULY 26, 2019 VIDEO: What Electrophysiologists Need From CT Imaging Prior to AF and VT Ablations Mark Ibrahim, M.D., F read more 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.center_img News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… read more Video Player is loading.Arthur Agatston explains the history of CT calcium scoring Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 9:54Loaded: 1.67%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -9:54 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Mid America Mortgage Adds National Underwriting Manager to Roster

first_img David TracyMid America Mortgage, Inc. (Mid America) owner and CEO Jeff Bode announced in a recent press release that the lender has hired David Tracy, former Fannie Mae underwriting consultant as its national underwriting manager. Tracy has over 20 years of residential and commercial mortgage experience and will be responsible for revitalizing Mid America’s underwriting operations nationwide.“Underwriting is a mission-critical function for any mortgage lender, and it has become an area in which Mid America seeks to differentiate itself from our competitors,” Bode said. “Through David’s efforts, Mid America is committed to restoring the lost art of human review in the underwriting process.”In his previous position at Fannie Mae, the company mentions that Tracy was responsible for conducting file reviews based on Fannie Mae and desktop underwriter guidelines, identifying and investigating potential fraud, conducting risk analyses, and communicating file review results to internal and external customers.He has also served as an underwriter for Bank of America and has filled mortgage operational roles for several Texas-based lenders, including CTX Mortgage, Capital Company of America and Nationsbanc Mortgage Corporation. He receved a Bachelor of Science degree from Standford Universtity and currently resides in Arlington, Texas.“While automated underwriting certainly has its place in mortgage lending, there is no substitute for the human element in the underwriting process,” Tracy said. “My goal as national underwriting manager is to create an underwriting environment within Mid America that enables us to uncover lending opportunities that may be overlooked or rejected out-of-hand in a fully automated underwriting setting without sacrificing loan quality.” Mid America Mortgage Adds National Underwriting Manager to Roster Share Equal Housing Lender Mid America Mortgage National Underwriting Manager 2015-06-05 Staff Writercenter_img June 5, 2015 642 Views in Headlines, News, Originationlast_img read more
