The Portal also supports the registration and posting of positions on this Portal to allow candidates to apply for vacancies.

The UGC on Wednesday inaugurated the academic work portal of qualifying applicants for NET, SET, and PhD on its official website UGC.ac.in. The site offers registration and online profile creation for candidates.

According to the official notice issued by UGC, the academic job portal permits employers to explore the academic profile of the applicants on this platform. The Portal also supports the registration and posting of job vacancies on this Portal to apply.

‘The portal supports skilled candidates of NET/SET/PhD to inform universities/colleges and other employers of their academic profile, with the purpose of achieving them a suitable position,’ reads the official statement.

The UGC is revamping the job portal to include positions for non-teachers and introducing some new features. The redesigned gateway will soon become operational.

Meanwhile, in May, UGC published its draught concept note on the collaborative teaching and learning mode. In response to this draught, different student organizations expressed resistance to the mixed method of education of the University Grants Commission (UGC) through an online petition filed to President Ram Nath Kovind.

The request also requested that students from marginalized groups receive immediate disbursements of grants and extensions and a special package for families.

Guinea declares the end of the recent outbreak of Ebola


Guinea declares the end of the recent outbreak of Ebola

The recent epidemic was the first in Guinea since the 2014-2016 fatal pandemic.

Senegal, DAKAR — According to the World Health Organization, Guinea announced the end of the Ebola outbreak in February and killed 12 people.

The most recent outbreak occurred in Guinea for the first time since the catastrophic attack in West Africa killed more than 11,300 people between 2014 and 2016. This came from the exact location before it spread to neighboring Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Guinea’s latest outbreak was reported on Feb. 14 following three cases in the southern rural village of N’zerekore, Goecke. There were 16 confirmed cases and seven likely cases.

I thank the communities impacted, Guinean governments and people, health professionals, partners and all others whose hard work has helped to control this Ebola outbreak,” said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the WHO.

Guinea succeeded to control the outbreak and prevent its spread beyond its boundaries based on the lessons from the 2014-16 outbreak and via swift, coordinated response efforts, the community’s engagement, the successful public health measures and the fair use of vaccines.” The United Nations has declared that it will continue to provide post-illness care.

In a statement, the CDC welcomed the news.

I salute Guinea’s government and first respondents for stopping Ebola,” stated Rochelle Walensky, CDC Director. “The people who lost loved ones to this disease are our heartfelt sympathies. CDC continues to support survivor programmes and to build global preparedness and response capabilities that will prevent or eliminate future Ebola epidemics.

Barcelona Sign Memphis Depay On Free Transfer From Lyon


Barcelona announced the signature of Memphis Depay on a two-year transaction from the French side of Lyon.

Barcelona confirmed Memphis Depay’s signature Saturday, when his contract with Lyon expires before the end of this month, with the striking party to join. Barca has negotiated a two-year agreement with Depay, who will be the third club signature to take on a free transfer this summer, after confirming deals for Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia. They also paid EUR 9 million to activate a recall clause for Emerson from Real Betis. Depay has long been an important goal for Coach Ronald Koeman in Barcelona, who worked with the Dutch National Team’s player.

On Thursday, Koeman was in Amsterdam to watch Depay early penalty for the Netherlands in its 2-0 win against Austria at Euro 2020.

The 27-year-old was close to signing a deal to Barca last year of € 25 million while a lower sum was also set in January, but the Club decided to wait until his contract came to an end.

“Once its contract with Olympique de Lyon has finished, FC Barcelona and Memphis Depay have entered into an agreement to join the Club. The player signs a deal until the end of the season of 2022/23, “Read the announcement of the Club.

Depay scored 20 goals in 38 appearances at Lyon last season and has five goals for the Netherlands in its previous four games.

Listen to the most recent songs on JioSaavn.com alone.

He is probably competing for a central striking position alongside Sergio Aguero as Koeman looks forward to a more physical presence.

The financial difficulties of Barcelona imply that the Club will sell several marginal players this summer. Among those who prefer to depart are Philippe Coutinho, Samuel Umtiti, and Miralem Pjanic.

Infosys to implement pay hikes effective July 2021


Infosys to implement pay hikes effective July 2021

The corporation had implemented wage increases in January 2021. Earlier, its counterpart from Bengaluru, Wipro, too along with TCS announced wage increases with effect from September 2021. The relocation comes at a time when the need for talent is excellent.

Information about the implementation of wage rises as of July 2021, second in the calendar year, as the company seeks to contain attrition and retain staff.

The corporation had implemented an increase in compensation in January 2021.

Speaking at the 40th annual general meeting at Infosys, which was held almost entirely, COO Pravin Rao noted that market opening is increasing demand and that enterprises are recruiting significant numbers. This led to greater attrition in FY21 than in FY20.

That said, Rao says, the corporation is stepping up its efforts to retain people. “We have two rounds, beginning January 2021 and July 2021, of increased remuneration,” Rao noted.

Earlier, Wipro announced its 80 percent increase in wages for its staff from September 2021, its second calendar year. TCS was the first to promote an increase in remuneration for employees in April 2021.

In the past year, Infosys engaged employees with continual learning and career advances. “We hope to restrict the manageable attrition,” added Rao.

About investors’ inquiries regarding H-1B difficulties, Rao added that examinations of Trump’s immigration policy had been carried out since the Biden administration took office. He said that the approval rates in Q4 FY21 have improved.

The shareholders also asked the management of Infosys about its acquisition strategy and collaborations with start-ups. Infosys, the CEO Salil Parekh stated that the company is not scared of huge acquisitions but that the focus is on the digital purchase of small enterprises. He noted that an essential component of the transaction is its integration functions with the company.

Parekh noted on the start-up front that the company looks at start-ups in the USA, the West Coast and Israel. However, the corporation is not concerned with investing in start-ups but rather with co-innovation and collaborations with enterprises.

Third Wave “Inevitable, Could Happen In 6 To 8 Weeks” Warns AIIMS Chief


New Delhi: A third Covid Wave in India is “inevitable,” which could impact the country over the next six to eight weeks; AIIMS Chief Randeep Guleria told NDTV this morning that it was after weeks of severe restrictions would be open to portions of the country.

The critical problem with Covishield is to vaccinate an enormous population and expand the dose gaps for Covishield to offer protection to cover more individuals, he stated.

In the fight against Covid in India, a new frontier will need to be formed to investigate the virus’s mutation further. Dr Guleria underlined that the Delta-plus variant developed from COVID-19 Delta was a novel source of worry with monoclonal antibody therapy.

“As we have started unlocking, Covid’s behaviour is again missing. From what happened between the first and second waves, we seem to have not learned. Again crowds are growing… people are flocking together.

covid pti 1623467905 - Third Wave "Inevitable, Could Happen In 6 To 8 Weeks" Warns AIIMS Chief

It will take some time to start to increase the number of instances at the national level. But it could happen within the next six to eight weeks “Dr Guleria said that. He remarked. “Everything relies on how we go on with Covid’s proper conduct and crowd prevention,” he added.

So far, almost 5% of the population of the country has been vaccinated on two doses. By the end of this year, the Government intends to vaccinate 108 crores of over 130 crore persons in the country.

“This is the biggest challenge. A new wave can normally take up to three months, but depending on several conditions, it might possibly take significantly less time. Apart from the appropriate behaviour of Covid, strict observation must be ensured.

Last time we witnessed a new variety – which was generated and developed from outside – leading to a big increase in the number of instances. We know that the virus continues to mutate. Aggressive monitoring is necessary for hotspots, “The Chief of AIIMS remarked.

“A mini-lockdown is required in any section of the country, which has seen a rise and an increase in positive rates exceeding 5%. Unless we are vaccinated, in the next few months, we are vulnerable,” Chief said. “Testing, tracking and treatment” “The focus in the hotspots should be.

“We have to influence human behaviour during unlocking, which needs to be accomplished gradually,” underlined Dr. Guleria.

On the spread of the Delta version in the UK, which is now facing a third wave, he stated, ‘We still need to take care of the virus, which is changing.’

In India, 99 per cent of all COVID-19 cases in the UK are now highly transmissible, reported news agency PTI.

Dr Guleria said the interval between the new waves is shortening and it’s “inquiet.”

“During the first wave, the virus did not spread so quickly… all changed during the second wave and the infection became considerably more virulent. The Delta variety now being distributed is far more contagious. Faster propagation is probable, “AIIMS chief stated.

A weakening second wave led to a shortage of medical supplies and hospital beds in several parts of India. SOS posts on social media have attracted the world’s attention, with numerous nations helping. After weeks of stringent constraints, several governments have finally reduced the restrictions; however, preparations are being made against the 3rd wave.

Maharashtra experts have warned that the third wave of the virus might produce 8 lakh active cases in Maharashtra state at its peak and now has about 1,4 lakh patients.

“When the number of cases increases enormously, the lack of beds follows. The plan should be multifaceted – we must ensure that new cases do not increase. Any healthcare system in the world will fail as infections proliferate unprecedentedly, “Today, Dr Guleria underlined.

Does India need to replenish its 12-16 week gap between Covishied’s two doses, on which the country depends a great deal? “There’s nothing written in stone. We’re going to have to look at fresh strategies. However, to take this judgement, we need robust facts, “The Chief of AIIMS remarked.

He stated that the decision should be motivated by science and not lack.

The UK took the one-dose policy for Astrazenaca (used as Covishield in India) and Pfizer, said Guleria.

“One-shot method may not be a bad idea because it can safeguard a greater number of individuals,” said Guleria.
