The bench of Chief Justice Sanjay Karol and Justice S Kumar has issued notices to the Government of Bihar, seeking their reply in the matter within three weeks. The petition has been filed by Advocate Jai Vardhan Narayan (in person) to fully realize the right to free and compulsory education guaranteed under Article 21-A of the Constitution of India. “All the Government Schools are closed and due to digital poverty in the State of Bihar especially in the Government Schools, the students are not being provided any form of learning and the teachers are sitting idle without any work and at the same time Private Schools are providing learning facilities to all their students,” he argued before the High Court. He emphasized that this is the most appropriate time for the Government, academicians, entrepreneurs, philanthropists and business barons, to deliberately concentrate efforts and resources on holistic moral, academic, medical and social as well as scientific technological development of every child. However, nothing much had been done over the past six months and the entire system was kept on “wait and watch phenomenon”. No action plan was made to put in track the functioning of the government run schools virtually in a proper manner, to preserve the children’s basic right to education. “The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2009, which represents the consequential legislation envisaged under Article 21-A, means that every child has a right to full time elementary education of satisfactory and equitable quality in a formal school which satisfies certain essential norms and standards,” the plea stated. The matter is now listed for hearing on November 4, 2020.

Prathaan/iStock(MANDAN, N.D.) — A North Dakota town was devastated after four people were found mysteriously dead at a local business and police said they were searching for the suspect.A homicide investigation is underway after the bodies were found Monday morning inside RJR Maintenance & Management, a property management company in Mandan, said the Mandan Police Department.Two of the victims, employees Lois Cobb, 45, and William Cobb, 50, were married, Mandan Chief of Police Jason Ziegler said at a news conference on Tuesday. Robert Fakler, 52, the owner, and Adam Fuehrer, 42, another worker, were also among the dead.“We just don’t have answers,” Ziegler told ABC News, adding that no suspects have been identified and no one is in custody.“It’s very unusual for the state of North Dakota. I don’t think any community across this great country could ever imagine something like this happen in their backyard,” he added, calling the crime “devastating” for the community.Ziegler said police do not believe the public is in danger, but he urged the community to remain vigilant.“This was very specific to the victims that were involved,” the chief said. “There was nothing at the crime scene that would lead us it believe that anyone outside the victims involved are in any danger.”The chief called RJR Maintenance & Management a “reputable company in our area.”There were security cameras inside the building but the chief did not say if the crime was on video.No weapons were recovered, he said.Autopsies are being conducted and cause of death will be released by the medical examiner, Ziegler said.As police investigate, Ziegler said, “We’re asking for public assistance. If anyone has any information regarding this crime, please contact the Mandan police.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Pennsylvania SPCA(PHILADELPHIA) — An elderly Yorkshire Terrier who suffered a traumatic head injury and then thrown out in the trash has died of her injuries.Pringles the Yorkie was discovered in a trashcan on the morning of Oct. 3 in North Philadelphia when a passer-by heard noises coming from a trashcan and found the severely injured dog clinging on to life. The dog was found underneath a layer of trash and the person who discovered the animal immediately called the Philadelphia Animal Care and Control Team.Pringles was then transported to the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Pennsylvania SPCA) for immediate treatment and was listed in critical condition, according to the organization.The Pennsylvania SPCA released a statement at the time of Pringles’ discovery.“Our Shelter Hospital team is doing everything in their power to save the life of Pringles, who is in a very delicate state,” said Nicole Wilson, director of Humane Law Enforcement & Operations at the Pennsylvania SPCA. “This dog had sustained serious injuries and instead of seeking help someone threw her away like she was a piece of trash. Thanks to a Good Samaritan who alerted authorities, we hope to give Pringles a second chance at the life she deserves.”A Pennsylvania SPCA Facebook fundraiser garnered more than $3,000 for Pringles in just four days before the PSPCS released a statement on Monday saying that Pringles and succumbed to her injuries.“It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share the news that our sweet Pringles passed away yesterday. While we are all shattered by this, we hope that we can all find comfort in the fact that she did not die in a trash can scared and alone, but instead was surrounded by love, the best medical treatment available, and the support of so many in the city of Philadelphia and far beyond,” the statement read.“While Pringles is no longer with us, our fight to find justice for her continues. Pringles was discarded like a piece of trash but fought to be found despite her injuries. In the short time that we knew her, she captured the hearts of many and her fighting spirit encouraged us all that perhaps a miracle was possible and she would recover. That was not to be, and while today we mourn, we will keep fighting – for Pringles,” the statement concluded.The Pennsylvania SPCA said that their Humane Law Enforcement team has identified Pringles’ owners and are investigating how Pringles ended up so severely injured and in a trashcan. The investigation into this case is ongoing, and charges are pending. Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.

Industry awards help spread best practice, provide good publicity for the winning organisations, a boost to team morale and a useful addition to the CV.Not surprising then that there were 787 entries to last year’s National Training Awards (see News Roundup below). The satisfaction felt by each winner can only have been slightly tempered by the fact that there were 57 other winners.The National Training Awards have been useful in raising the profile of training and development, but the DfEE-funded initiative often seems to recognise organisations using NVQs or working towards IIP recognition, and this year that tendency will become explicit. Instead of entering the competition as individuals, employers or providers, the categories will be based around the use of areas such as IIP, ILAs, New Deal and Union Learning Funds as frameworks for learning.If this approach reveals new, successful ways of using these initiatives, it will be a useful change of direction, but it is all the more reason why broader, more open awards, such as those run by Personnel Today, have an important part to play in recognising innovation.Training and our partner in the TD2000 campaign The Industrial Society believe there is room for a further award which will highlight effective ways of integrating T&D into the fabric of the business and raising its status – hence the launch of the TD2000 Award, kindly sponsored by Raytheon Training. You can read all about it on pages 9, 10 and 20.Many T&D people tell us their greatest challenges are evaluation, senior-level influence and integration into the rest of the business, so these are the focus of the award. If you believe your T&D team is successful in at least two of these three areas, we urge you to enter; best practice is sorely needed in these areas and you will be doing a great service to the profession.
