Humboldt State receiver Chase Krivashei eyeing more team success in 2016 season

first_imgARCATA >> When it comes to stats versus success, there’s no doubting which side Humboldt State senior Chase Krivashei is going to land on.“If I have a great year and we go 0-11, I’m still not happy, not happy at all,” Krivashei said. “When we win is when I’m happy — whether I catch 18 balls or I catch one. I don’t really care as long as we win. This year I’m hoping to have another good year and help the team win.

Maharashtra PG medical, dental admissions: SC extends deadline to June 14

first_imgThe Supreme Court on June 4 directed the Maharashtra government to hold the last round of counselling for postgraduate medical and dental seats by June 14. It ordered the State to give wide publicity to the extension of the admissions deadline from June 4 to 14. It said no other court would entertain petitions filed on this matter.The order by a Vacation Bench led by Justice Indu Malhotra follows an interim direction last month to the State to not implement the 10% economic quota for the admissions for the 2019-20 academic year. The Maharashtra government issued notifications dated February 12 and March 7 last to implement the 10% reservation for the economically deprived classes. They were stayed by the apex court in a recent order.On June 4, the court slammed the government for “creating a mess” and troubling candidates who aspire to get their postgraduation. It clarified that candidates would not be allowed to change preferences made at the time of filling up the admission forms.May 31 directiveOn May 31, the court directed the government to complete the counselling process and come up with revised merit list for admissions after removing seats allotted under the 10% Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) quota to 25 students. The then Vacation Bench headed by Justice M.R. Shah asked the State to complete the counselling process by June 4. It pulled up the government for overreaching its May 30 order against the implementation of 10% EWS quota.On May 30, the court passed an interim direction that the 10% quota introduced through the two notifications will not apply for this academic year, the process for which had began in November 2018.By the 103rd constitutional amendment, Article 16 (6) was inserted allowing the States to make “any provision for the reservation of appointments or posts in favour of any economically weaker sections of citizens other than the classes mentioned in clause (4), in addition to the existing reservation and subject to a maximum of ten per cent of the posts in each category.”The May 30 interim direction came on a plea filed by a student, Rajat Rajendra Agrawal, from the general category questioning whether the constitutional amendment would apply to an ongoing admission process that had started well before the coming into force of the amendment (January, 2019) and the two notifications.last_img read more
