whatsapp SOMEWHAT predictably the recent appointment of Sir Philip Green to the post of efficiency tsar is turning out to be one of the most ill-judged moves of the government’s (reasonably successful) first 100 days.The tycoon’s call-up has cruelly exposed the differences in policy between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats on tax avoidance.This in itself made it a risky appointment. But because of the cack-handed way in which the affair has been managed, it has a kamikaze look about it.In a smoothly functioning government machine the business secretary Vince Cable should not have heard of Green’s appointment from the political editor of City A.M.Then those in the government who were in the know, such as Danny Alexander, should have been more proactive in arguing why it thinks Sir Green’s own tax arrangements are not relevant to the task he has in hand. Any fool could have told him this question was going to be high on most people’s agendas.Next, the government’s spin machine – sorry, but I’m sure I knew the Prime Minister himself when he was a spin doctor – should have primed Green to expect the kind of question that our political editor put to him (“did your tax affairs come up in discussion with government prior to your appointment?”) and he should have been able to respond in a calm and measured way. It was naive of him and the government not to have done such preparation. Especially when the Lib Dems prior to the election campaigned so vociferously against British business people avoiding tax.Green himself has gone from strength to strength since leaving the public company arena in the early 1990s. But he is a businessman better suited to the private company arena and, by the evidence of the last few days, will struggle to cope with the goldfish bowl world of government.He may well be a retail genius. Certainly few others in the sector appear to rival him.But he is thin-skinned; his four letter word outbursts are legendary and, with his family based in Monaco and his lavish parties, he is probably the last person one thinks of when hearing chancellor George Osborne’s well-worn phrase: “We’re all in this together.” Many Lib Dems rightly feel they were sidelined over the appointment of Green.?It is unlikely they will let this one rest.HOLIDAY TIMEThose who have just come back from their holiday will probably be wishing they had a few more days by the poolside.Well, those kind people at the City law firm Allen & Overy have come up with a scheme whereby partners can get an extra 52 days a year off to help them juggle their family commitments – or sit by the poolside.The main reason for the move is to encourage women on the verge of becoming partners to stay on with the firm.Allen & Overy says 62 per cent of its recent graduate intake was female but only 16 per cent of its current partners are of the fairer sex. The scheme will apply to men and women equally and for those who take it up their pay will be adjusted accordingly. It’s a scheme that will be difficult to put into practice but it deserves to work.

Image courtesy of Carnegie Mellon University.In July of this year, top-ranked high school mathematics students from more than 100 countries gathered in Chiang Mai, Thailand, to compete in the annual International Mathematics Olympiad. The team from the United States won, under the guidance of head coach and Caltech alumnus Po-Shen Loh (BS ’04). The victory was the first for the United States in 21 years.Loh, an associate professor in the department of mathematical sciences at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), attributed the success to a number of factors, including a deeply talented team, a strong sense of collaboration among its members, and, perhaps surprisingly, harder problems. “Some of the problems this year were unusual,” Loh says. “That leveled the playing field a bit, and our team was able to capitalize.”Loh has officially led the team for just over a year, but has been involved with the U.S. Olympiad for most of his career. A silver medalist in the 1999 competition in Romania after his senior year in high school, Loh credits his experiences in the Olympiad for inspiring him to attend Caltech, where his interest in mathematics only deepened. “Competitions are very different from pursuing math as a career,” Loh says. “My professors at Caltech really inspired me to continue into research.”The types of problems that mathematicians work on, whether in academia, engineering, or finance, require deep collaboration, so we try to establish that culture early onThroughout his studies at Caltech, Loh remained committed to the Olympiad program, serving as an assistant coach on the team. “Right after graduation, my wife, Debbie Lee (BS ’04), and I were married around the corner from Caltech, and the very next day, I was on a plane for that year’s competition,” he says.The U.S. Olympiad team is sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), which holds regional competitions throughout the year at which Loh and his fellow coaches identify potential team members. In the summer, the MAA hosts an intensive program where these prospects, along with dozens of other top students, hone their skills in a collaborative environment before heading to the international competition.“The types of problems that mathematicians work on, whether in academia, engineering, or finance, require deep collaboration, so we try to establish that culture early on,” Loh says.Beyond helping the Olympiad team members, Loh is working to improve the mathematics literacy of students at all educational levels—all the way down to elementary school.The pool of talented young mathematicians available to programs such as the Olympiad has become deeper in recent years—in part, Loh notes, because access to online materials has allowed self-starting, entrepreneurial students to leap into advanced mathematics at younger ages. “We have more students at age 13 taking calculus than ever before,” he says.Po-Shen Loh (far left) with Team USA: Shyam Narayanan, David Stoner, Michael Kural, Ryan Alweiss, Yang Liu, and Allen Liu, and assistant coaches John Berman and Alex Zhai (far right). Courtesy Po-Shen LohHowever, according to a study published by the Pew Research Center, the United States lags behind other countries in math education, this year ranking 35th out of 64 countries in scores on the Program for International Student Assessment, a standardized test that measures 15-year-old students’ literacy in reading, science, and math. “So while the most self-motivated students are able to flourish, unfortunately others are being left behind,” Loh says.Loh believes that adjusting the way math is taught and then tested may help, starting in elementary school. “Most math is generally taught in bulk segments, followed by a test, which is a high-stakes endeavor for the student,” he observes. “They feel pressure with each choice, then must wait an extended period of time to find out what they did wrong. The sense of collaboration disappears. All this only serves to amplify the effect of a failure. Too many mistakes can be debilitating, causing students to just give up. But trial and failure is actually how we learn best, if we can make failure less costly.”To capitalize on the benefits of trial and error while sidestepping the pitfalls, Loh launched Expii, an online start-up offering web and smartphone apps meant to simulate the experience of one-to-one tutoring. Lessons, which are crowdsourced and vetted by Expii’s users, are structured to lead a student along a series of rapid-fire questions and answers, offering immediate feedback as the student progresses. The company, launched last year, has already attracted a number of investors, including Adam D’Angelo (BS ’06), founder of the website Quora, a popular knowledge base that aggregates users’ questions and answers to topics.“The idea is to let a student know right away if they’re headed down the wrong path, so they can back up and try again. We create a process of trial, failure, and then rapid recovery,” Loh says. This helps students to build confidence, which they then carry to higher-stakes tests.Loh has at least one reason to believe in this method: “That’s the process we use to train for the Olympiad.” Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Community News First Heatwave Expected Next Week Business News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Subscribe EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Education United States Wins International Mathematics Olympiad Under Head Coach and Caltech Alumnus Po-Shen Loh From STAFF REPORTS Published on Tuesday, August 25, 2015 | 11:14 am

The Bench of Justice N. Kirubakaran and Justice B. Pugalendhi gave this order as the Counsel (for the respondent) made allegations against the Court stating that the Court had done injustice. The allegations by the Counsel were made after the pronouncement of the Judgment, after knowing that the matter had gone against her client She (the Counsel) submitted before the Court that it was very unfortunate that the Court passed the Judgment in the instant Writ Appeal “without hearing her arguments and she was under the impression that the Writ Appeal would be dismissed.” Court’s order While noting that the outcry of the Counsel amounts to contempt of Court and also needs a reference to the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry for taking disciplinary proceedings against her, the Court took into consideration the fact that she was having a grievance, that she needed to be heard further in detail. Further, the Court said, “This Court feels that since we have not signed the order yet, this Court will provide one more opportunity to the learned Counsel appearing for the respondent to put forth her further arguments in this matter.” Importantly, the Court also remarked, “Whatever may be the proceedings or the result of the proceedings, a Senior Member of the Bar ought not have stooped down to the level of making allegations against this Court.” Further, the Court said, “We are pained by the representation made by the learned Counsel appearing for the respondent, who was a leader of the bar for some time and also a Senior Member. If this kind of attitude is going to be encouraged, it will send a wrong message to the Juniors, who are all watching the Court proceedings.”The matter has been put for further hearing on 14th December.Click Here To Download OrderRead OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
