The varsity will be launching registration of UG courses immediately after that on June 1,” DU Registrar Tarun Das said in an official statement, according to PTI.”The eligible candidates are informed that the registration process will be completely online including sports, Extra Curricular Activities (ECA), Kashmiri Migrants and Defence category. The candidates will also be required to upload their self-attested documents online,” he added.(Read: All you need to know about Delhi University admissions 2016-2017)Admission policy:Maintaining silence over the admission norms for the session, which generally are announced every year much in advance, the registrar said, “the details of the registration process and subsequent procedures will be available in the bulletin of information which will be uploaded online the same day”.A 24-member committee including deans from faculties of science, commerce and arts, nine college principals and members from the executive and academic councils, was constituted by the university to formulate an admission policy for this academic year.Every year, the schedule and the admission policy for the coming session are announced by the university atleast a week before the whole process starts. However, this time, as of now, there is no clarity on whether or not the recommendations by the admission committee have been approved by the vice chancellor.Points of confusion:Some of the points on which students and parents are confused include whether the process will change the concession given to girl candidates by some colleges, formula for calculation of best four percentage, centralised trials for admissions under sports and Extra Curricular Activities (ECA) quota and number of cut-off lists, among others.The question of whether or not minority institutions such as St Stephens and Jesus and Mary college will be part of the centralised process or not, is also yet to be answered by the DU authorities.Read: Street vendor’s daughter tops Karnataka PUC examRead: Intel competition in US awards six Indian studentsadvertisementClick here for education related news.<img src="http://image1.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2020/IMG13548.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm8187"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Premier League clubs vote to close transfer window before start of season

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://b45.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/B2045/IMG13760.jpg" alt="first_img" /> Premier League clubs’ brave move may be ruined by elite European predators Read more Martha Kelner Share on LinkedIn Senior executives from the 20 top-flight clubs met in a central London hotel to consider the proposed changes, with in-depth discussions lasting four hours. It is understood 14 clubs voted in favour of the amendment with five against and one abstention, believed to be the Burnley chairman, Mike Garlick.The five who voted against were Manchester City, Manchester United, Crystal Palace, Watford and Swansea City. United’s vote was apparently cast against the wishes of José Mourinho, who said last month that he would “prefer the window to close as soon as possible”.Those opposed to the rule change worry that Premier League clubs will be left short if their players are bought after the domestic window shuts and they are unable to replace them.The move comes after the start of this season was dominated by uncertainty over the future of players such as Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy, Everton’s Ross Barkley and Swansea City’s Gylfi Sigurdsson, who ultimately moved to Goodison Park.The Premier League’s chairman, Richard Scudamore, said there was an overwhelming sense that clubs wanted to begin the season with more certainty over their squad. “Most important was the integrity of the competition between each other,” he said. “When the 20 are playing each other [it was wrong] you could have a person in your team one week and be playing against him the next, or worse the player not playing because of speculation about him going to another Premier League team so he’s not available for a week or two of the season while the window is open. Share on Twitter Share on Messenger “Those were the issues most of the clubs arguing in favour were using, that once the season has started we should know that we can’t possibly sell to another Premier League club. I think they just decided: ‘We’re going to break for the border, go it alone, put our marker down, go with it.’”Although no specific cases were cited in discussions, closing the window before the start of the domestic season would also avoid the situation that arose when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain played in Arsenal’s 4-0 defeat at Liverpool before joining the Merseyside club less than a week later.It is understood Liverpool’s refusal to sell Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona convinced detractors that the Premier League could make a unilateral move without the rest of Europe. Germany’s top tier is most likely to follow suit and the Bundesliga hosted a general meeting of club managers on Thursday where the issue was discussed, although it is understood opinion varied widely.The Premier League also expects that the Football League will copy its example, while the Uefa president, Aleksander Ceferin, has backed closing the window earlier in an interview with the German broadcasters ARD. He said: “Yes, I think that it is open for too long. It is strange that you play for one club when the season starts and then that you can simply play for another one. That is not good for the competition. We are in serious discussions over shortening the transfer window.”Asked when it should close, Ceferin added: “I think that it is no bad idea to close the window at the end of July.”Arsène Wenger has also called for January’s mid-season transfer window to be scrapped entirely, with the Arsenal manager saying players are unsettled by speculation linking them with new clubs. But Scudamore said that such a move had not been discussed officially. Topics Reuse this content Share on Pinterest Share on WhatsApp news Premier League clubs have voted narrowly in favour of closing the transfer window before the start of the domestic season, coming into force before the 2018-19 campaign.The summer transfer window will now shut at 5pm on the Thursday before the first game of the season, with the change affecting only incoming signings. The Premier League is the first European elite division to abandon the deadline on or around 31 August, meaning clubs elsewhere in Europe will be able to buy their players but no replacements could be signed.

When the figure goes up, it is expected to be more or less correspond to the final tally of 73.68 per cent recorded in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The turnout in the 18 assembly segments recorded 71.62 per cent (both LS and Assembly polls turnout were based on available data at 7 pm) and with Lok Sabha elections in Madurai segment ending at 8 pm, the data collation was still on, Sahoo told reporters here. There was no major law and order issues and a CAPF jawan fired one round in the air to disperse crowds (near Arakkonam), he added. DGP (Elections) Ashutosh Shukla said when the crowds tried to enter a polling station at Kilvisharam under Arakkonam Lok Sabha segment, a Central Armed Police Force jawan opened one round of fire in the air. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K”Superintendent of Police, Vellore rushed to the spot and brought the situation under control,” he added. Minor incidents of violence were reported from five towns, including Gudiyatham and Ariyalur, and the situation was brought under control immediately, he added. Police said four BJP men were allegedly injured in a clash with workers of the DMK and Congress in Kanyakumari. On complaints of technical glitches, Sahoo said 375 ballot units, 228 control units and 766 VVPAT were replaced. “Based on the low replacement rates, we can say the EVM performance has been very good.” The EVMs and VVPATs will be moved to counting centres by poll authorities and police in the presence of political parties, the CEO noted. On allegation of deletion of about a lakh of voters’ names in Kanyakumari by the Congress, he said they could give a complaint and it will be acted upon. Tamil Nadu brought out the many colours of elections when several centenarians like 102-year-old Jegadambal of Nagapattinam and lakhs of first time voters braved the scorching sun to cast their vote. From Chief Minister K Palaniswami, Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam, DMK chief M K Stalin, Makkal Needhi Maiam chief Kamal Haasan were among those who exercised their franchise standing in queues. Party leaders and top film stars including Rajinikanth, Ajit and Vijay were among the prominent personalities who turned up to vote. Indisposed 96-year-old DMK veteran, K Anbazhagan, a colleague of late M Karunanidhi was wheeled in at a booth here to cast his vote. Just after tying the knot, several couples arrived in their traditional bridal attire at the polling stations in areas including Nallampalli (Dharmapuri) and Srivilliputhur (Virudhunagar) to cast their votes. Rain and shine played spoilsport to an extent in some parts of the State in keeping voters away from the polling stations for sometime. While Chennai and other northern parts of Tamil Nadu was blazing hot, some southern parts of the State including Kanyakumari received showers. People switched to protest mode as well in a couple of regions like the villagers of Top Station in Kurangani hill ranges of Theni District to protest lack of basic amenities. “Of the 185 voters of this village, none came forward to cast their vote,” Theni District Collector M Pallavi Baldev said. Two elderly men died after casting their votes in Sivagiri (Erode) and Vedappatti (Salem) respectively. A 65-year-old man, who collapsed after emerging from a polling station, was rushed to a hospital where he was declared brought dead in Coimbatore while an 85-year woman died while she was standing in a queue at a booth there. Deletion of names from voters list, non-issuance of voters’ slips, malfunctioning of EVMs and technical glitches delaying polling process were among the key complaints of the people. After casting his vote, Stalin alleged that there has been distribution of cash and accused the Election Commission of being an “ally” of central and state governments. Union minister Pon Radhakrishnan, DMK’s Dayanidhi Maran and Kanimozhi, and Karti Chidambaram of Congress are among key contenders. Radhakrishnan told reporters in Kanyakumari: “This is a massive democratic festival which will decide the fate of India. I have exercised my franchise… A silent revolution is happening.” AIADMK leader and state minister D Jayakumar said 13 per cent voting in the morning “is a joyous thing.” “This shows there is a wave for Amma and MGR,” he said, exuding confidence that the AIADMK-BJP combine will emerge victorious. Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam leader T T V Dhinakaran alleged “malfunctioning of EVMs is an achievement of the Modi government.” About 1.40 lakh police personnel and 160 companies of CAPF were deployed in 17,720 polling stations to manage law and order.<img src="http://b54.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/B2054/IMG14020.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7993"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Former Wilmington Trust official sentenced for conspiracy

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p>WILMINGTON, Del. — A former bank executive who co-operated with authorities in an investigation that led to the fraud convictions of four top executives for Wilmington Trust, the only financial institution to be criminally charged in connection with the federal bank bailout program, has been sentenced to almost two years in prison.Fifty-one-year-old Joseph Terranova was sentenced to 21 months behind bars Tuesday, more than five years after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud.Terranova’s attorney had asked for a sentence of home confinement and community service.Terranova, who at one point wore an FBI wire to secretly record his conversations with colleagues and real estate developers, testified last year in the trial of former bank president Robert Harra and three other top Wilmington Trust executives.

To fight tuberculosis root causes must be addressed says SecretaryGeneral

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p>24 March 2008Tackling tuberculosis – a disease which still kills 4,000 people every day – requires dealing with its root causes, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today on the occasion of World TB Day. Tackling tuberculosis – a disease which still kills 4,000 people every day – requires dealing with its root causes, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today on the occasion of World TB Day.The theme of this year’s Day is “I am stopping TB,” and it is a pledge “we must uphold as we battle the epidemic throughout the year and into the future,” Mr. Ban said in a message.Multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB), which is man-made, and the even more lethal extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB) are both spreading.“If we are to prevent a virtually untreatable tuberculosis epidemic, we must tackle the roots of the problem: poor services, poor supplies, poor prescribing and poor use of drugs,” the Secretary-General observed.The fight against tuberculosis “can be won only with the collective commitment of millions of individuals – donors and researchers, doctors and health-care workers, patients and family members.”As a result of collaboration among a range of partners, the proportion of people falling ill with TB is declining. But the advances are not being made at the same rate as population growth, Mr. Ban said, adding that the disease becomes ever more deadly when it overlaps with the HIV epidemic.He also urged a stepped up global response to save lives from tuberculosis, noting that the UN will convene a Global Leaders’ HIV/TB Forum this June.<span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7972"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Social media can make children more likely to have eating disorders because

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p>Dr Guerrero said the findings reinforces the importance of the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Children and Youth.These advise five to 17 year olds get at least 60 minutes a day moderate to vigorous exercise, have a maximum two hours of recreational screen time and manage nine to 11 hours uninterrupted sleep every night. Social media can make children more likely to have eating disorders or try drugs because it makes them more impulsive, a new study suggests. Too much social media – which includes Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, YouTube, Instagram and SnapChat – makes them more impulsive, often leading to bad decisions that will affect them for the rest of their lives, warn scientists.Children spending a significant amount of time looking at screens, and not getting enough sleep, are most vulnerable, the study found.Lead author Dr Michelle Guerrero, a paediatrican at the University of Ottawa, said: “Impulsive behaviour is associated with numerous mental health and addiction problems, including eating disorders, behavioural addictions and substance abuse.”Her team analysed more than 4,500 eight to 11 year olds. Those who used smartphones more than two hours a day and slept less than nine hours a night were more impulsive.The results were based on the participants’ self reported scores on eight traits such as perserverance, seeking out thrills, setting goals, being sensitive and acting rashly. It adds to increasing evidence that screens are harming children’s mental health, she said.Exercise was also found to lead to less impulsive youngsters. What is more, the benefit of a full night’s sleep is a major factor.Dr Guerrero said: “When people don’t sleep long enough, their behaviour is more impulsive.”The research is the first set of data from the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development Study, which plans to follow the participants for 10 years.Future feedback will shed fresh light on how physical activity, screen time and sleep relate to children’s impulsivity, Dr Guerrero added.

Meeting all three pillars of the recommendations was associated with more favourable outcomes.Dr Guerrero said: “Impulsive behaviour is associated with numerous mental health and addiction problems, including eating disorders, behavioural addictions and substance abuse.”This study shows the importance of especially paying attention to sleep and recreational screen time.”When kids follow these recommendations, they are more likely to make better decisions and act less rashly than those who do not meet the guidelines.”In one of the first studies of its kind her team looked specifically at the link between screen time and behaviour in adolescents. Dr Guerrero said: “We were looking at how excessive screen time leads to impulsive behaviour.”Impulsivity was defined as acting “without realising the risk involved or the consequences involved with the behaviour.”The characteristic is often connected to mental health issues and is a key component of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.Dr Guerrero said: “When we don’t think before we act, it has huge impacts on our lives.”A key discovery was how easily preventable it is, as as it involves a minor life adjustment – including less screen time and more sleep.Dr Guerrero said: “The behaviours we looked at in our study are modifiable. They can be changed right now, today.”<span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7873"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

An awful lot actually A recent study found 75 litres of urine in one public swimming pool in Canada.

Scientists said this made it the “ideal urinary marker”.Blackstock said that there was “no other explanation” for that substance to be in the pools.She noted that urine is considered sterile, and any potentially harmful bacteria that finds its way into pools is usually killed off by chlorine.Although there are moderate health risks, with a small risk of eye irritation and even respiratory problems if exposed to urine-contaminated water over a long period of time, Blackstock said that any potential harm was outweighed by the health benefits of regular exercise through swimming.There was no way, however, to estimate how many swimmers peed while in the pools, as the researchers did not monitor how many people visited the pools over the course of the three-month study.A US survey conducted in 2012 said that one in five people admitted to peeing in a swimming pool.Back in 2012, decorated Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps admitted that he and his fellow swimmers sometimes relieve themselves in the pool, while fellow US swimmer Ryan Lochte also admitted to the practice.So, what do you think? Have you ever peed in a swimming pool?

Portia Doubleday on passing notes and Angelas repressed emotion on Mr

<!-- Begin :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt --><div class="ecae" style=""><p><img src="http://s31.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2031/IMG267.jpg" alt="first_img" />“There’s something to be said about how dangerous these affirmations are.” @PortiaDd on Angela in season_2.0. #MrRobotSDCC— Mr. Robot (@whoismrrobot) July 22, 2016But the real questions may be about Angela’s past. We know the broad strokes, but Doubleday says there are a lot of feelings being shoved down right now. What is she repressing? That’s where the story really is for her this season.She also disclosed that there are several things coming up for Angela. “Things just keep getting slammed her way,” she offered before going on to say there wasn’t much more she could say but rounded it out with “The ending is totally insane…everyone on the show goes through massive changes”.Like Malek, Doubleday has been diving into the fan theories and trying to figure things out, including note passing during the table readings and all sorts of ideas and theories have been discussed and even run by Esmail. However, she also cautioned that, whenever people think they have it figured out, things change. If you think you know where things are going, here’s something to keep in mind –– four of the actors, people who know the show and the characters intimately, all had their own guesses.All of them were wrong.Not that she’s stopped guessing. She recently read the “scarf on the door” theory. If you haven’t heard it, there ya go. The first question Portia Doubleday got when she sat down at our press table at SDCC was “What’s coming up for Angela?”.After joking that she couldn’t tell us, she went on to say that Angela’s quite different this season than she was in the first season and I think the most interesting elements are this idea of brainwash.Doubleday made a commitment to really diving deep this season into the implications of her mother’s death and going to work for E-Corp a.k.a the company that’s responsible for that death and the following cover-up. Guilt and shame are something Angela is living with on a daily basis and Doubleday eschews the idea that Angela “drank the Kool-Aid” or that she’s evil. Instead, she thinks of it as doing what Terry Colby suggested…getting into the company and working her way up to a position where she can effect a change within the company.She’s also looking into the idea of what happens when you finally get power and control. “There’s something very lucrative about it…so there’s that fine line that people relate to.”Asked about Angela’s new affirmations, she described working on them at home so she could see what the experience was. She admitted that they did lift her mood and made her wonder why Angela needs to do them so desperately. I find that answer even more interesting after seeing this tweet during the panel.<img src="http://s16.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2016/IMG16137.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7623"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

After all, he’d been made the face for the league’s worst offensive line three years running.But as Levi heads out of town, I present to you seven things that should be considered before you give the man’s Cardinal eulogy.1.

And Dansby would like to be back. In fact, Dansby thinks he will be back.“I definitely expect to be an Arizona Cardinal next year,” he told Sirius XM’s NFL Radio. “We don’t have long here. Eventually we’ll get to talking and try to hammer something out and see how it goes.” Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling<img src="http://s31.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2031/IMG3204.jpg" alt="center_img" /> Dansby, 32, signed with the Cardinals last March after being cut by the Miami Dolphins. The first six seasons of his NFL career were spent in Arizona after being drafted, so it was a bit of a homecoming for the linebacker. Yet his 2013 was significantly better than anything he had done before.Dansby set career highs in tackles (122), interceptions (4) and passes defensed (19), while also tallying 6.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He returned two of the interceptions for touchdowns, by the way.But for the Cardinals, as was the case in 2010 when they saw Dansby leave for a bigger contract in Miami, the question really comes down to how much the veteran is worth. If he plays like he did last season, Dansby is worth quite a bit. And he expects to be even better next season.“I definitely want to dominate in a winning program, definitely want to be in a winning situation at this point in my career,” he said of his goals. “I’m having fun, man, I’m just getting started. I’ve got some things up my sleeve I’m going to be doing this offseason to really solidify myself as the best linebacker in the league, period. I let it slip through my fingers last season, I won’t let it happen again.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires<img src="http://s16.29626262.net/wp-shlf1314/2016/IMG18796.jpg" alt="last_img" /><span class="ecae-button none" style="text-align:left" > <a class="ecae-link" href="http://hztzcj.com/kferm7455"><span>read more</span></a></span></p></div><!-- End :: Generated by Easy Custom Auto Excerpt -->
