Kind Attn: Avnish Jolly,

 

National HRD Network, an association of HR professionals in India, launches its Learning Center at Chandigarh today.  The first one day workshop is being attended by the top HR professionals of the region, at Chitkara Univ, Dainik Bhaskar Building, Sector 25, Chandigarh.  The NHRDN Chandigarh Chapter has received a lot of appreciation for bringing this initiative to Chandigarh region which was so far devoid of quality learning programmes for Human Resource professionals of the region. The Chandigarh Learning Center will conduct a series of workshop on bi-monthly basis covering pertinent topics related to Human Resource Development. NHRDN has a membership base of about 9000 HR professionals spread across India.

OBJECTIVES:

The objective of this one-day workshop is to provide participants a comprehensive understanding and practical insight into the knowledge, skills and techniques required to develop competency frameworks with a special emphasis on HR competency framework.
It is widely accepted that a good competency framework should be central to all HR activity from selection, development to appraisal. However, designing effective competency frameworks that are easy to understand and implement in organizations can be a tricky process. And when it comes to designing and developing HR competencies for themselves, HR professionals need to find the resources from within their community. This practical programme provides participants with a toolkit of techniques to develop and implement robust, practical and future-proofed frameworks

METHODOLOGY
The workshop design is based on interactive approach, case studies, experiential insights and application for result oriented outcomes.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

The workshop would be designed for HR Practitioners with 3-7 years of work experience.

CERTIFICATION
A Participation Certificate will be provided to all participants

WHEN
12 Jun 2010 (Saturday)
Registration: 9:00 am- 9:30 am
Session Timings: 9:30 am - 5:30 pm

Chandigarh, June 11

The superintendent of Nari Niketan, Ritika Sheokand, today came in the
line of fire after the mentally challenged girl who was allegedly
raped at the institution stated before a court she had informed
Sheokand about the sexual assault. She accused the latter of doing
nothing about her complaint and instead rebuking her.

Deposing before the court of additional district & sessions judge Gian
Chand Garg, the victim stated during the crossexamination that she had
told Sheokand, who was then in charge of the institution, about the
rape but the latter had scolded her instead.

As the victim entered the courtroom today she was chirpy and lively.
Sitting in a lemon coloured dress with additional amicus curiae Tanu
Bedi she appeared to be relaxed until the nine suspects in the case
entered the courtroom. Upon seeing them the victim became
uncomfortable and began hiding her face. However, in a few minutes she
appeared composed again.

Replying to the questions of one of the defence counsels, the victim
said she was raped two days before being shifted to Ashraya, a shelter
for deprived children. Pointing to Sheokand, who was not booked in the
case by the police, she stated before the court she had even informed
the Nari Niketan superintendent about the place where she was
allegedly raped.

The mentally challenged victim further added that Sheokand "used to
raise a storm" when she told her she was raped. The victim, however,
did not elaborate. She said all the suspects, including Kamla and
Maya, had threatened her with dire consequences if she spoke about the
incident.

Judicial probe ordered into illegal detention case
http://www.tribuneindia.com/2010/20100612/punjab.htm#13

Saurabh Malik
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, June 11
Holding Patiala CIA staff prima facie guilty of acting beyond
jurisdiction in an illegal detention case, the Punjab and Haryana High
Court has ordered judicial probe. Issuing the directions after
detainee Nasim Ahmed was found with the CIA staff, Justice Ranjit
Singh also made it clear that the officials would not be let off the
hook, if found guilty of acting beyond jurisdiction.

Nasim Ahmed of Saharanpur district was working for a jeweller there. A
communication alleging Ahmed's illegal detention, received through
post by the high court, was treated as a writ petition.

Initially, his employers allegedly told the family that Ahmed had been
sent out of station on a business tour. After about six days, and a
panchayat meeting, his brother was asked to come to Patiala.

On May 22, Ahmed, escorted by two or three cops in civil clothes, was
brought to a lonely park. Breaking down, Ahmed alleged illegal
detention by the staff, as allegations of theft at jewellery shop were
levelled against him, the letter said.

Justice Ranjit Singh ruled: "The facts as narrated would prima facie
indicate that the presence of Ahmed with the CIA staff is not as
innocent as is being made out. The person from Saharanpur is found
present at Patiala that, too, in the CIA staff…

"It would clearly show that the police at CIA staff has acted beyond
jurisdiction to deal with a person, who was from Saharanpur, which is
outside the state, for which the police would not have the
jurisdiction to investigate or even register the complaint.
Apparently, some person at the CIA staff has done so on being
approached by the employer….

"Prima facie, case of illegal detention of Nasim Ahmed is made out.
Before issuing further directions, I deem it appropriate to direct
inquiry to find out the exact factual position and to know as to why
Nasim Ahmed was detained by the CIA staff, Patiala, if it was so.

"Chief Judicial Magistrate, Patiala, is directed to hold an inquiry
into this case and give his report within three months. Further
directions would follow in case it is found that the CIA staff has
acted illegally or beyond the call of duty and beyond their
jurisdiction by illegally detaining a person who is from outside the
state of Punjab.

"The CJM, Patiala, would also go into the reasons as to how the CIA
staff, Patiala, if it is so, has acted in this manner and what was the
motive behind all this and who and at whose instance at CIA staff all
this was done".

38 cases of molestation in 18 months, many go unreported
Swati Sharma
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, June 11
March 24, 2009: Neha Kaur (name changed) had gone with her husband to
the night food street in Sector 14 at 11 pm where she was molested by
a group of boys.

October 24, 2009: Six-year-old Divya (name changed) was going to
school on a rickshaw when a rickshaw-puller molested her.

February 22, 2010: Eight-year-old Sanvi (name changed) was going with
her father when she was pulled by a man who forcibly kissed her.

Going by the figures, the city has registered 38 cases of molestation
in the last 18 months. Women are not safe on city roads and the
authorities need to do something to curb it.

After the conviction of former Haryana DGP SPS Rathore, 20 years after
molesting Ruchika Girhotra, former IGP of Haryana MS Ahlawat was
booked for molesting an advocate eight years back when he was the
Yamunanagar SSP.

Barring these two cases, which have received huge media response, a
majority of other cases involving common girls receive insignificant
coverage. Most importantly, a number of cases are never reported as
the affected girls and women don't register any complaint.

It is hard to believe, however, the city has been witness to incidents
when girls were even molested in front of their parents. In one such
case, five-year-old Sarika (name changed) was with her father when one
Ram Singh molested her and threatened to kill her.

Commenting on the issue, UT SSP SS Srivastava said, "Molestation cases
have gone down compared to previous years. The police is keeping a
strict vigil."

Narrating another incident of molestation, a college-going girl
student said, "Once I was walking back from the university to
Government College for Girls, Sector 11, when two boys came very close
to me on their bike and pulled my arm and molested me. My clothes were
also torn in the process. They abused me and fled. I cannot forget the
horrifying incident."

Dr Rajshree Sarda, a psychologist in Panchkula said: "There is a sense
of extreme distrust and usually women are molested by someone they
know. As far as the psyche of molesters is concerned, it is usually
excess sexual desire that they don't know how to release. In some
cases, it can also be a bad relation with a woman. Such men try to get
back at women in guard, with physical overtures. They are called
misogynist."

Discussing a case of a girl who started hating herself and became
overweight as she felt guilty of giving those vibes to her tormentor,
Dr Rajshree said, "She was molested for years by a servant and she
thought it's her fault that she was luring him to indulge in such an
act."

Terming it as a psychological problem, Priti Vohra, counsellor in
Vivek High School, said, "If a youngster indulges in eve-teasing, it
is the exploration age. If an aged man molests someone, it's taking
the maximum advantage of the opportunity. For sure, such people
require psychiatric help. Youngsters need to be talked to when they
enter puberty which helps them handle the bodily changes."

First demand justice from executive, then move PIL before courts: SC
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/First-demand-justice-from-executive-then-move-PIL-before-courts-SC/articleshow/5931766.cms

TNN, May 15, 2010, 03.15am IST

NEW DELHI: After warning that those filing frivolous PILs would be
saddled with deterrent fines, the Supreme Court on Friday said even
genuine PIL petitioners would have to first seek justice from the
executive.

"No one, howsoever genuine their cause may be, should approach the
courts with a PIL without even sending a notice to the authorities for
redressal of the grievance," said a Bench comprising Chief Justice S H
Kapadia and Justices K S Radhakrishnan and Swatanter Kumar.

When counsel for NGO `Ankush', which had sought implementation of road
safety measures by the Andhra Pradesh government, said it had no
personal interest and that it was acting in public interest, the CJI
asked: "Where is your notice to the concerned authorities demanding
justice in this issue."

"A proper procedure has to be followed by the coruts for entertaining
PILs. There is no way that a petitioner, who comes straight to the
court with a PIL, will be entertained," said the CJI, speaking for the
Bench.

Addressing a long standing grievance of the executive that the
judiciary has been encroaching into its turf, Justice Kapadia said:
"The PIL petitioners have been moving the courts straightaway without
even bringing the problem to the notice of the authorities. And the
courts have been entertaining these PILs, virtually taking over the
function of the authorities. We will not allow such bypassing of the
authorities to take place any more."

The new rules would drastically cut down the rate of filing of PILs in
the court. For, those filing frivolous ones would be scared of being
saddled with heavy costs, which the CJI had said on Thursday would be
utilised for improving infrastructure of the subordinate judiciary.
Secondly, even genuine PILs would not be entertained if the
petitioners have not brought their problem to the notice of the
concerned authorities for justice.

GPF Exclusive: Security Council Passes New Sanctions amid Allegations of Systematic Injustice (June 10, 2010)
The UN Security Council has passed Resolution 1929 imposing new sanctions against Iran for its alleged nuclear ambitions. The resolution passed with 12 affirmative votes, 2 dissenting votes from Brazil and Turkey, and an abstention from Lebanon. The Iranian delegate, speaking after the vote, highlighted the "rampant double-standards" that politically-motivated powerful countries impose on the weak. The delegate recalled Iran's plight at the Security Council in 1951 and the series of systematic injustices committed against it by the hegemonic powers ever since. The session highlighted the fundamental disconnect between those in favour of 1929, and those opposed. It is now clear, more than ever, that this issue is about much more than just Iran's nuclear program. (Global Policy Forum)

Abdelrazik Suit Takes Aim at Ottawa over UN Blacklist (June 8, 2010)
Abousfian Abdelrazik has filed a lawsuit against the Canadian Government after he was wrongfully included on the UN's "blacklist" of alleged terrorists. Abdelrazik was stranded, jailed and tortured in Sudan as the target of a UN travel ban and asset freeze. He remains the target of sanctions despite having been cleared by both Canadian intelligence services and the national police force. He argues that Canada's compliance with the UN targeted sanctions regime violates his rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. This case illustrates the dubious efficacy and legitimacy of the UN's targeted sanctions. (CTV News)

Blood Gems on the Agenda (June 6, 2010)
Human rights groups continue to report abuses and killings in Zimbabwe's diamond fields, and the officials from the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) are monitoring the situation for further violations of minimum standards. Evidence indicates that the government has threatened and persecuted officials who have alerted the KPCS of human rights abuses. Documents also show that Zimbabwe continues to sell diamonds to numerous corporations without properly obtaining the requisite licenses. A KPCS meeting later this month will address Zimbabwe's activities and determine if the country should be permitted to sell its diamonds through established international channels. (Times Live)

Burma's Nuclear Weapons Intent "Clear and Disturbing" (June 4, 2010)
A report produced by the Democratic Voice of Burma claims to show that the Burmese military junta intends to develop nuclear weapons. The evidence cited in the report includes pictures and documents smuggled out of the country by a former major in the Burmese army. Observers have compared the major to Mordechai Vanunu, the technician who provided evidence of Israel's nuclear program. As reports have also surfaced linking North Korea to Burma's alleged ambitions, U.S. Senator Jim Webb cancelled his planned trip to Burma.

Brazil Names Tax Havens - 74 of Them (June 9, 2010)
The Brazilian Ministry of Finance published a list of 74 secrecy jurisdictions, replacing a previous list of 52. Interestingly, many of the world's countries are acting as secrecy jurisdictions. The first part of the lists contains 65 jurisdictions that do not tax income or have a tax rate below 20% and the second part lists nine "privileged fiscal regimes." While many of the countries on the list are predictable, one of the notable omissions is the United Kingdom. (Tax Research UK)

FEDS Knew of Gulf Oil Spill Risks in 2000, Document Shows (June 8, 2010)
In 2000 the US Interior Department's Minerals and Management Service (MMS) published a report explaining the hazards of deepwater oil drilling. The report detailed the environmental implications of a deepwater blowout and foreshadowed the consequences of a disaster akin to the BP spill in the Gulf. The MMS had the opportunity to bring these risks to the forefront of its agenda but as the pressure to find more oil sources mounted, the financial rewards outweighed the environmental consequences. The MMS downplayed the environmental impact of deepwater drilling and approved numerous deepwater oil projects. The MMS' own report implicates the Department of negligent behavior as it shows that the BP oil spill was preventable had the risks of the operation been properly assessed and managed. (Truthout)

Ethiopia: Government Denies Food Aid "Manipulated" for Political Gain (June 7, 2010)
In Ethiopia, food aid is used as leverage to gain political support. People who depend on food aid cannot risk supporting opposition parties in a famine-prone country. International programs and donors have a "structural incentive" to overlook human rights violations in relation to food aid because Ethiopia is a key ally of the West. Investigations into human rights abuse claims are conducted in conjunction with the Ethiopian government, thus lacking objectivity. (IRIN)

Monsanto's "Roundup Ready" crop, whereby GM seeds unaffected by an accompanying herbicide, make up for 90 percent of the soybean and 80 percent of the corn grown in the US. The rise of Roundup more than a decade ago eclipsed herbicides of other agrochemical companies, but now the invasion of evolved superweeds is sparking a bioengineering race to enable more powerful chemicals - a trend that can only lead to a more precarious food system.

LATIN AMERICA: Taxing the Poor (June 2, 2010)
The UN Economic Commission on Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) has released a report showing that the region, despite its positive economic growth, collects less tax than any other region in the world. Moreover the ECLAC report indicates that national tax structures in the region are unfair, weighing heavily on the poor. The Guatemalan representative to the UN has remarked that a more progressive tax is needed to curb inequality and such a discussion should not be distracted by philosophical discussions about the relationship between the state and the market.

The Global Struggle Over Who Will End Hunger (May 27, 2010)
The UN High Level Task Force on global food security met with members of civil society in Dublin, inviting input to the Comprehensive Framework for Action against Hunger (CFA). But civil society organizations were asked for their opinion long after the main document had already been written. International committees on food security in Rome, New York and Washington D.C. continue to disagree on how to rebuild agricultural systems in the Global South. The CFA offers solutions that call for the extension of the very practices that have caused critical food shortfalls in many countries. At this conference, key organizations like Via Campesina refused to attend and sent a scathing letter denouncing the dialogue as an "exercise of style." (Huffington Post)

Africans Face Competing Visions of Agricultural Development at a Critical Juncture (May 20, 2010)
The "aid regime" in sub-Saharan Africa swamps smallholder farmers with the proposed "solutions" from the same toolkit of failed policies endorsed since the 1980s. Powerful multilateral financial institutions, corporations, and government aid agencies collude around an approach to "development" that promotes privatization, deregulation, and the lowering of barriers to trade and foreign capital. This tour de force of philanthropic capitalism makes it difficult for farmer groups to get their voices heard by their national governments and it blocks local priorities from being taken into account.

Open Letter: Policies and Actions to Eradicate Hunger and Malnutrition (March 2010)
This open-letter is addressed to the Dublin meeting of the UN High Level Task Force on Global Food Security March 2010. The Dublin meeting was convened to update the Comprehensive Framework for Action, and this letter reflects on the participation of civil society. It is signed by 275 organizations representative of small-scale farmers and fisher peoples, pastoralists, women, youth, and indigenous peoples from all over the world. (eradicatehunger.org)

Are Super Powers Undermining the ICC? (June 9, 2010)
The States Parties to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court are currently considering the inclusion of the crime of aggression into the Court's jurisdiction at the ICC Review Conference in Kampala, Uganda. The latest news from the conference indicates that the permanent members of the UN Security Council are hindering attempts to empower the Court to prosecute the crime they have all committed.

Report Blames Swedish Oil Firm for Sudan War Crimes (June 8, 2010)
The European Coalition on Oil in Sudan (ECOS) has accused Swedish oil company Lundin Petroleum of being a complicit in the commission of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Sudan between 1997 and 2003. ECOS claims in a 100-page report that a contract for oil exploitation between a Lundin-led consortium and Khartoum set the wheels in motion for a vicious war in the south of Sudan. The report also charges that the companies' respective governments failed in their international obligations to prevent human rights violations and international crimes. (AFP)

Accused of War Crimes, and Living With Perks (June 3, 2010)
The International Criminal Court provides a model of humane, civilized detention that contrasts starkly with the nature of the crimes the inmates are accused of. These inmates are former Congolese warlords, Serbian Militia leaders and a former Liberian president who all live in luxurious surroundings. Additional benefits are travel subsidies for family visits from distant African countries which cost tens of thousands of euros. Some donor nations now ask the question whether the detainee's entitlements have reached their limits. (New York Times)

The Harper Government, Women's Rights and the Cost of Speaking Out (June 4, 2010)
The Harper administration is reversing the traditional policy under which Canadian governments have provided funding to NGOs and civil-society groups, including those which oppose government policies. The hardest hit groups have been those working for women's rights - funding for groups such as International Planned Parenthood has already been cut and the Canadian International Development Agency has warned NGOs to omit phrases like "gender equality" from future proposals to have a chance at funding. Meanwhile international development assistance for projects dedicated to promoting gender equality in Pakistan and Kenya has also been considerably reduced. (The Globe and Mail)

Murky Climate Finance Risks Undermining Trust at U.N. Talks (June 4, 2010)
One of the major issues under discussion at the Bonn Climate Change Talks is climate financing. The non-binding Copenhagen Accord of 2009 calls upon developed countries to provide "new and additional resources" for poor countries to help finance future mitigation of climate change and to deal with its already imminent effects. However recipient countries have expressed concern about whether money for climate aid could be diverted from the official development assistance (ODA) budgets of developed countries or counted towards meeting the U.N. target of giving 0.7 of their gross national income in aid. Furthermore, it appears that the EU is diverting resources disproportionately towards mitigation rather than adaptation, which means that emerging economies, instead of the poorest nations, are set to receive the bulk of this aid.

Baghdad Urged to Tackle Water Shortage Crisis (June 5, 2010)
As of late, issues of oil and security have dictated the discourse on Iraq, overshadowing the urgent question of the country's looming water crisis. Iraq has been historically afflicted with a water scarcity problem which has only been compounded by the previous government's neglect of the issue. The problem has significant social implications with regards to human displacement and food security; a recent UNESCO report states that 100,000 Iraqis have had to flee their communities due to water shortages since 2005. The crisis also has a political dimension in that it bears heavily on Iraq's ties with upriver countries such as Turkey, Syria and Iran, furthermore water as a potential source of conflict in the future should not be ruled out.

Did the Bush Administration Experiment on Detainees? (June 6, 2010)
A report by Physicians for Human Rights accuses the Bush administration's terrorist interrogation program of human experimentation. According to the report, medical professionals associated with the CIA monitored and gathered data on interrogation methods in order to "enhance future interrogations." This raises a whole new set of legal issues since human experimentation without consent is in clear violation of international law. In particular, experimentation on detainees may constitute a war crime under the Nuremberg Code. Interestingly enough, the US Congress passed The Military Commissions Act in 2006, which weakened the language on illegal biological experiments contained in the predecessor law, suggesting that the administration was aware of such possible future charges.

Lipstick Plant Botanical name: Aeschynanthus radicans. Description: Related to African violets and gloxinias, lipstick plants are members of the gesneriad family. It’s easy to see the reason for their common name since the lobed red flowers emerging from a maroon sheath do resemble lipsticks in tubes. Natives of the West Indies, the plants grow as epiphytes in the wild, but they’re most comfortable in hanging baskets in the home. Blooms should come and go all year if the plant has suitable brig
