Linkedin Twitter Facebook Twitter Linkedin printThe alarms in the new sorority houses are now working, but Monday’s test of TCU’s alert system revealed more flaws in how the university warns the campus of danger.Some students said they were confused by the phone calls and text message because they were sent from an unidentified number.“I had TCU texts and emails and phone calls and all the stuff, but it just kind of tells you that the alerts are going off and not a lot of information,” said Sophie King, a junior strategic communication major. “It was helpful to know that something was going on, there just wasn’t a lot of details.”Adrian Andrews, the assistant vice chancellor for public safety, said future messages and calls will come from a listed number. For two minutes, emergency lights flashed and alarms sounded around campus. While the system ran its test, urgent notifications were sent to students and faculty via emails, text messages and phone calls.Even though the alarms were nothing more than a routine test, officials advised everyone to treat this simulation as if it were a real emergency.“What we want to do is make sure everyone here is knowledgeable as to what they should do during a moment of crisis,” Andrews said. “That’s why testing is so important. If you’re going to let the masses know that there is an emergency on campus the best way to do it is to go through our system.”Once the emergency communication was received, recipients were advised to immediately reply to the message. This act not only cancels any further forms of communication, it also notifies the University of the person’s awareness of the situation. With September being National Preparedness Month, this precautionary check-up is just another way the university is working to remind students of how to stay safe should an emergency arise.“I think it’s great that TCU is testing the alarms and taking extra precautions,” junior finance major Kait Mitchell said. “It’s important to keep TCU the safe and beautiful campus that it is. The safety measures are important for the whole community.” Grace Amiss World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

The Bench comprising of Justices RF Nariman, Navin Sinha and BR Gavai were of the view that the prayer seeking a 3 month extension to complete the required processes was justified in view of the unique situation presented by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Through three applications, the MCI had requested the Court to modify the schedule for the Academic Year 2020-21 so that proper inspection of medical colleges and counselling process of students could be undertaken. It had been requested that they be granted an extension not only to establish new colleges and grant permission for renewal of existing ones, but also to incorporate new super-speciality courses and allow an increased intake for these courses. The third application sought an extension of deadline for the admission of students to PG courses, from 31.5.2020 to 31.7.2020. “Miscellaneous application stands allowed in terms of prayer (a)”, recorded the Order, allowing all three prayers. Given the peculiar situation presented by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was urged that the initial cut-off date for the grant of Letters of Permission be extended from May 31 to August 31, as a one-time measure. Earlier, on 18.01.2016, the Top Court had approved MCI’s time schedule for processing admissions to Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Super-speciality courses, as well that for processing applications for new establishments/renewal of existing ones under Section 10A of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 (IMC Act). Notably, the last date for the grant of Letters of Permission to this effect was to be May 31. This timeline, submits the Council, was strictly adhered to in compliance with Court Orders. Subsequently in September 2018, the Centre passed an Ordinance affording a Board of Governors the power to discharge functions under the IMC Act, in supersession of the MCI. The Board now has powers to permit the establishment of new colleges, opening of new courses and increase admission capacity independently of MCI. However, informs MCI, the physical assessment of a college and a report thereof is essential in determining whether or not a college may be granted a Letter of Permission. This is irrespective of the Board being in supersession of the Council or not, asserts MCI. The applicant has further apprised the Court that the process of physical inspection/assessment of colleges could not take place as its office as well as the concerned colleges were not fully functional in lieu of the nationwide lockdown. The cases of 108 colleges are, therefore, pending before the Board for final decision, states the application. In view of the entire situation, the new academic session for the year 2020-21 cannot commence before September 15, informs MCI. Thus, it is “submitted that the balance of convenience is in favour of the applicant and no irreparable loss shall be caused to the any party if the present application is allowed. The present application is bona-fide and in the interest of justice.”  Click here to download Order Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailChange the RefBy KATIE KINDELAN, ABC News (NEW YORK) — Amid the smiling fans seen as cardboard cutouts supporting their favorite baseball team during a crowdless season due to the coronavirus pandemic, one stands out.The face of Joaquin Oliver, a 17-year-old victim of the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 students and staff members, has been seen in the crowd at 14 different ballparks this season — from Oracle Park in San Francisco to Citi Field in New York.The cutouts of Joaquin were placed in baseball stadiums by Change the Ref, the nonprofit organization formed by his parents, Manuel and Patricia Oliver, to raise awareness about mass shootings and bring an end to gun violence.The MLB initiative is called “83 Strikes and No Outs” because, according to Change the Ref, there have been “83 additional school shootings and zero changes to federal gun laws,” since a teen gunman walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, 2018, and killed Joaquin and 16 of his fellow students, teachers and coaches.“It’s very sad, but I guess that’s the point,” Manuel Oliver told ABC News’ Good Morning America of seeing his late son’s image amid cheering fans in baseball stadiums.“I need to let everybody know that this random tragedy that hit our family, it could hit you tomorrow,” he said. “I need to go beyond sadness and be strong enough, because I have to, and have this story told that explains how this kid isn’t able to be there anymore watching the games that he loved so much unless he’s printed on a cardboard.”Seeing Joaquin’s face in baseball stadiums across the country is particularly poignant for Oliver, who always supported his son’s passion for baseball despite not playing or following the game himself.Two years before Joaquin’s death, he and Oliver had started an annual tradition of flying to a city, renting a car and then driving to all the nearby baseball stadiums.“You have to fall in love, or at least support, the passion of your kids,” said Oliver, an artist who has also painted murals across the country featuring Joaquin. “Imagine if I hadn’t done that [with Joaquin and baseball]. How would I feel today?”“Every minute that I spent with Joaquin, on the baseball field, in the baseball park, in trainings, it’s one of the most valuable treasures that I hold today,’ he said.Oliver said he hopes the sight of Joaquin in the crowds inspires people to take action and join the fight against gun violence, whether it’s by voting, educating themselves, joining Change the Ref or even getting to know kids in their community who may be in need of help.“I didn’t see a message like this one before Feb. 14,” he said. “Maybe if someone had the brave attitude of doing something like this before Parkland, maybe I would have been one of the lucky ones to see that, and maybe I would have done something before Joaquin was murdered. [I would have been] part of the solution.”More than two dozen school shootings happened in the U.S. in 2019 alone, according to an ABC News analysis of incidents at K-12 schools. And school shootings represent just a tiny fraction of the firearm crimes in the U.S., with more than 185,000 aggravated assaults with a firearm in 2018 alone, according to FBI data.Oliver said he is hopeful that things will change when it comes to gun violence and gun reform in the U.S., and he is hopeful that Joaquin will continue to lead the way for change.“My son is not a kid who died and you can visit him every Sunday in the cemetery and that’s it,” said Oliver. “No, my son will be a main element in the change that this nation is screaming for, and that makes me feel a little better than just remembering my son as the kid who went to school and never came back home.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
