first_imgMLN (pronounced ‘Melon’), an early-stage University College Dublin (UCD) student venture, has been declared the overall winner of the 2019 UCD Start-up Stars Programme and has won a €3,000 cash prize.Many employees of medium-to-large organisations are unhappy with their daily commute. Over 50% live outside a direct form of public transport to work, affecting employee retention levels. Such organisations are also reducing the number of parking spaces they have available to staff due to rising costs.To address this issue, MLN is currently developing a secure and real-time in-house carpooling app for medium-to-large organisations to reduce the number of cars on the road, to improve the commuter’s experience, and to increase employee retention levels.The MLN app will enable users to act as both passengers and drivers on their daily commute. The app will use gamification to attract and retain users by providing incentives and rewards for carpooling participation. The MLN dashboard will provide customers with visibility of their carbon footprint reduction, productivity increases and cross-team collaborations. The MLN box uses GPS to automatically detect the user’s commute and an accelerometer and gyroscope to detect collisions and perform vehicle diagnostics.The founders of MLN are; Manal Mukhtar, an undergraduate student in the UCD Lochlann Quinn School of Business and UCD Sutherland School of Law and Ellen Le Bas, who has just completed a postgraduate degree in the UCD School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.Manal Mukhtar, said, “We have thoroughly enjoyed our last 4 weeks at NovaUCD during which we have further developed our start-up idea and we are delighted that MLN has won the 2019 UCD Start-Up Stars Programme. We believe that we are at the cusp of a carpooling revolution and that MLN can be at the forefront when it reaches the tipping point.”Ellen Le Bas said, “We are excited to continue working with NovaUCD to develop MLN further. The network of mentors and fellow entrepreneurs at NovaUCD is a valuable resource to have as an early-stage start-up.”The UCD Start-up Stars programme, now in its 5th year, provides a framework to support UCD undergraduate and postgraduate students who want to work together to develop and grow start-up companies. It has been developed by NovaUCD, the UCD Innovation Academy and UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School.Seven early stage ventures, with a total of 16 team members, participated in an intensive mentoring programme which took place over the last 4 weeks at NovaUCD.The aim of this mentoring programme was to assist the students in refining their start-up ideas through a series of structured workshops, including taught content from industry experts, interactive workshops and regular pitching sessions. In addition, each team also received a cash stipend and office space at NovaUCD.Tom Flanagan, UCD Director of Enterprise and Commercialisation said, “I would like to congratulate the founders of MLN on winning the 2019 UCD Start-up Stars Programme and I would like to commend all the students who participated in the programme.”He added, “During the last 4 weeks at NovaUCD this group of talented and entrepreneurial students leveraged our start-up expertise and network to further develop and refine their start-up ideas. I now look forward to seeing these early-stage ventures move forward to successful market launch.”He concluded, “Our ongoing €6.5 million project to develop NovaUCD’s eastern courtyard, which will increase our capacity to house start-ups by over 50%, will be completed very shortly. When opened it will help us to meet the significant and ongoing demand from ambitious entrepreneurs, such as those who have just completed the Start-Up Stars Programme, who want to locate at NovaUCD to leverage our ecosystem to help them grow and scale their businesses.”Following final pitches to a judging panel, MLN was selected as the overall winner as it was considered to have the most commercial potential and the founders received the cash prize of €3,000 sponsored by Xilinx. The six runners-up also received a cash prize of €500 each sponsored by Xilinx.Professor Suzi Jarvis, Founding Director, UCD Innovation Academy said, “The students have worked very hard over these past few weeks on venture ideas they are passionate about. The final pitches are a testament to the work that is being undertaken at UCD to foster entrepreneurial mindsets and the ambition of our students to tackle big problems. This programme is a fantastic opportunity for them to develop an idea and explore its viability in the real world.”Majella Murphy, Entrepreneur-in-Residence, UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School said, “There was a great mix of students from multiple disciplines on the 2019 programme who brought with them diverse ideas and perspectives which are very beneficial to early-stage start-ups.”A total of 30 early-stage ventures and over 75 students have now completed the UCD Start-up Stars Programme over the last 5 years.last_img read more

first_imgThe head of primary education teachers’ union, Filios Fylaktou, on Wednesday described Education Minister Costas Kadis as an enemy of education and teachers and declared that Thursday’s planned strikes would go ahead.Poed union is staging industrial action to protest parliament’s approval of two bills overhauling the system of appointing teachers to state schools.Fylaktou said that last week’s vote was a crime against teachers perpetrated by the political parties and the education ministry.“We are deeply concerned about the fate of the new appointment system, which is being promoted as an innovation in education, but which is built on sand and will collapse in the immediate future with court rulings,” Fylaktou said.The union, he said, feels that Kadis has been damaging the teachers’ prestige and degrading their work.“That is why, for Poed and the educational world, the education minister is an enemy of education and of the teachers,” Fylaktou said. He also slammed the parliamentary parties that adopted the proposals of the education ministry and gave the green light to the new ‘irresponsible’ appointment system.Kadis quickly hit back, saying that there was no turning back and his ministry was determined to proceed with this reform.“We have today the most outdated teacher hiring system across Europe,” Kadis told the Cyprus News Agency.Thursday’s strike will affect schools of the Nicosia, Larnaca and Famagusta districts. The union called on its members to gather outside the education ministry to protest.Another strike is to take place next Thursday, June 15 in Limassol and Paphos.The strikes, Fylaktou said, were the ultimate measure but were deemed necessary because many teachers who had been working as temps for more than 30 months now faced unemployment.“We want to send out a clear message that we are not prepared to accept such practices in the workplace, that are contrary to the legal framework,” he said.Both the parliament and the education ministry, he said, have closed their doors on them, and stripped them of their rights. The affected teachers, some 350 people, demand open-ended contracts, and aim at taking to the courts to claim their right, Fylaktou said.The union accuses the ministry of violating European court decisions by not recognising its obligation to change the terms of employment for those with more than 30 months of service in line with the rest of the public sector.Poed is demanding that such teachers cannot be fired when the new regulations come into force. The union maintains that as long as positions exist for contract teachers, they must be filled first by those with more than 30 months’ experience.But Kadis said that the teachers Poed want to be given open-ended contracts are not included in the categories included by the state legal services.“The legal services state clearly that teachers that have served or serve as substitutes do not have the right to be given open-ended contracts,” Kadis said.This concerns 119 teachers – who “will not be thrown out on the street” – less than half Poed’s figure.But Kadis also questioned the validity of Poed’s concerns as one of the basic provisions of the legislation passed by the House allowed these teachers to be hired under the existing system until 2027.Most of them, he said, will be permanently appointed during the next ten years.The new regulations replace the current regime, by which university graduates are appointed on the basis of graduation year, with annual exams-based appointments.They include a 10-year transition period, during which both systems will operate, with varying weighted percentages of appointments from each, progressively eliminating the current system.The first examinations for appointment to all state schools – pre-primary schools, primary schools, high-schools, and technical schools – will be held in October and November 2017.   You May LikeCity BeautyDo This To Fix Sagging Jowls Without SurgeryCity BeautyUndoSolar SolutionsCalifornia Will Pay Homeowners to Install SolarSolar SolutionsUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?FigLeaf Beta AppUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

first_imgForestry workers trade union leaders on Wednesday called for the proper preservation and management of the island’s natural wealth, saying it must become a priority for the state before it’s too late.To mark the International Day of Forests, the board of the workers’ union at Pasydy called on stakeholders to immediately resolve outstanding problems “before it’s too late”.“For Cyprus, the conservation, protection, development and proper management of our forestry ecosystem is of paramount importance, especially due to the specific geographical location, and climate change,” the statement said.It added that in particular, for urban areas where, according to the 2011 census, 68 per cent of the population lives, urban and suburban parks and green areas were of particular importance.“The need to preserve, properly manage and develop these sites, as well as all the forest and green areas of our island, must be a top priority for the state,” the statement added.“This means a strong and strengthened forestry sector and a forestry system properly set up and equipped to be able to carry out this task. At the same time, it means a well-informed society that, with interest, knowledge, love and care that will support this work, will contribute in its own way and will constructively judge the state’s decisions and activities in this area.”The statement said that despite the general finding that Cyprus’ forests were under sustainable management, and despite the recent improvements that have been made, “there are still many, serious and essential steps to be taken”.The union referred specifically to budget cuts that had weakened forestry management, especially when it came to effective responses to forest fires.“It is also reflected in the degradation of forestry education in Cyprus,” it said, referring to the closure of the Forestry College in Prodromos recent years.“Though “significant steps” have been made in the last year, more immediate and drastic decisions are needed to restore the protection of our forests to safe and satisfactory levels,” it concluded. You May LikeViralScape32 Scariest Abandoned Places Around The WorldViralScapeUndoHealth Insurance | Search AdsCheap Health Insurance Options May Still be Available in Rowland HeightsHealth Insurance | Search AdsUndoNewsDHe Was Termed As The Most Decorated Marine In The US History, Here’s WhyNewsDUndo Films and food at RialtoUndoHigh temperatures increase risk of firesUndoAt least 20 killed, 50 injured in attack on VP candidate’s office in KabulUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

first_imgBy Jean ChristouDr Catherine Demetriades describes herself as a “fully-functional autistic savant”, the true meaning of which might not be immediately apparent, at least until the jaw-dropping things she has accomplished come pouring out in conversation.A scientist at CERN – home of the Large Hadron Collider or particle smasher – and with four PhDs in molecular medicine, biophysics, particle physics and quantum psychology, Demetriades is also an author, musician, registered nutritionist – since the age of 16 – and an Egyptologist specialising in ancient perfumery.Born in Toronto, to a father with Egyptian roots and a mother with Greek Cypriot roots, Demetrides has lived in the US and in various other countries and has worked for CERN for going on eight years. Her background is all about science but only as a means to an end – to use what she has learned to become an inventor.But Demetriades, who incidentally speaks five languages – self-taught, naturally – is not in Cyprus to brag about her vast credentials, though within minutes it’s apparent she is a person with extraordinary abilities and talents.Demetriades has a mission and she wants Cyprus to be part of it, to put the island on the map when she and her team launch the world’s first quantum robot specifically designed to help autistic children communicate with their parents.“I work at CERN. I’m project leader for creating the first and only quantum robot that can scan non-verbal autistic children and translate what they are thinking and feeling in depth,” she said.“It is revolutionising both robotics and autism at the same time. Until now robots haven’t been used for emotional reasons. Some of them can see facial expressions and translate them into emotions but not actually understand the sequences of events and the stories in their DNA.”Demetriades said she wants the robot, AutiZmo, to be built in Cyprus and launched from here. She’s set a deadline of November to unveil the prototype being built under the supervision of her robotics engineer Alaa Faraag from Egypt.Catherine Demetriades wants the robot, AutiZmo, to be built in Cyprus and launched from hereFaraag said they came up with AutiZmo while sharing ideas.  “We were joking around and saying wouldn’t it be nice if there was a robot you could tell your problems to and find a solution and Cat said she could do that,” he told the Sunday Mail.Demetriades had already invented a system that could run such scans, and the idea developed to put that ‘brain’ into an affordable robot that families with autistic children could acquire.“We want it in homes. We don’t want it complicated… AutiZmo will be part of the family and we want him small enough so people can carry him,” said Demetriades.The system it will run on is called SMART, which stands for ‘stored memory access retrieval technique’ and is based on DNA sequencing.“I can chart and measure every emotional experience you’ve had in your life and the life stories that are encoded into your DNA, decode and deactivate them,” Demetriades said.“I was working on this obsessively for the last seven years and I kept upgrading it and understanding more indepth and I saw what other scientists were doing and the mistakes they made in the mathematics because you need maths, physics, chemistry, biophysics, you need particle physics, you need a lot of different sciences to understand this and I couldn’t for the life of me. As a scientist… I would go up to people and say, ‘you know it’s so exciting and I can understand all the stories of your life from the DNA.’ And it just scared people and I couldn’t understand why this could not go out into the world successfully but I keep working on it.”There is a very technical explanation for how it works involving subatomic particles, genetic commands and emotional blueprints programmed into DNA-RNA. But to put it more simply, Demetriades says: “There’s an energy you project on a subconscious level called quanta. When you have subconscious issues you have very powerful forces you would call negative energies, if you want to be basic about it,” she said.Catherine pictured with robotics engineer Alaa Faraag who is designing the robotFor instance, if someone has had a traumatic experience as a child such as a dog bite, it creates a force, a heat inside the body. It’s how something that starts as a fear and that grows can turn into a panic attack, which is basically an explosion of energy.“We give off this quanta, and AutiZmo is able to pick up the quanta with precision and depth and understand children who have temper tantrums, very common, so you would understand how it all starts.  When they are overwhelmed the energy explodes and now you have a child in crisis and you can’t figure out where it all started. The robot will translate this. That’s where the maths and biophysics come in. It’s a complicated process but the point is to have a simple explanation for parents to understand.”Demetriades says she has been involved in molecular medicine for 26 years so understands how things work on a physical cellular level.  She said she was curious as to how the mind could made the body sick and “how the energy shifts and how it reacts inside of you”.In fact, she was drawn to create SMART to try and understand her own autism because in a way her higher brain function or having a consciousness exist on a different level made it difficult to cope with the ‘real world’.“I am a fully functional autistic savant myself so I have savant syndrome. For this kind of stuff lucky me,” she said. “The more I uncovered about savant syndrome the more paralysed I was. You can’t function like normal people. I could only work at CERN. I needed to understand how to function in this world.  I went so far back in my own DNA… I went deeper and deeper into it and thought if I could read the quanta I would be able to understand the trauma.”Creating AutiZmo is not a panacea, however, Demetriades said. All it can do is point out what the problem is in those who can’t communicate how they feel. Treatment is the job of doctors and psychologists.  “We’d like to emphasise that this going to help everyone’s job. It’s not taking anyone’s job.”The team is not working with any universities on the island but is working with the GC School of Careers to help launch the project. It also includes CERN scientists from Italy and Cyprus, computer scientists and programmers from Cyprus and India, and robotic engineers from Egypt, who work remotely, led by Faraag, who has studied mechatronics. He’s been involved with robotics since he was six.Demetriades has also written a small book called Speak to Me, currently in English but she hopes to have it translated into Greek as well.  “I did research to understand on a molecular and biophysics level the reasons the children can’t speak. My goal is to help parents understand their children better,” she said.Demetriades and Faraag have not decided on the final shape of the prototype yet.“The shape will be super important,” he said. “We are doing research in order to make a perfect shape to communicate with autistic kids.” This is because some might be scared of the robot. Colour will also be important so no “aggressive red” so basically “friendly, cute and neutral”.Hands and legs for AutiZmo might make it more expensive so that has not been decided yet. “What’s important is what it does,” said Demetriades.AutiZmo, which is already patented worldwide through Demetriades company Catatrix, will be small enough to fit in a carry bag and Demetriades and Faraag want to keep the price as affordable as possible. Each robot will be programmed for a specific child and his or her progress tracked through algorithms.To create the prototype, the team still needs some funding and is hoping to receive enough financial support for the more sophisticated version.Demetriades said in a way that is why they brought the project to Cyprus.“I believe people are very eager to help such causes here. Being a scientist from CERN I could easily give this to the Swiss first and then everyone else but I have come here because I wanted this small little island to launch,” she said. “Cyprus has gone really forward in research and innovation. They are really supporting young scientists now. We believe the right people will come and help us.”She hopes that the sale of the book at a special price will also help funding and are looking at crowdfunding.Demetriades hopes her robot will translate the feelings of autistic childrenDemetriades said she and Faraag attended the Light it up Blue event recently in Limassol to mark World Autism Day and she was happy to see that First Lady Andri Anastasiades supported the cause.“We’re trying to create awareness,” she said.Catatrix is also running robotics workshops in Cyprus for various age groups as the project moves ahead.Delving into other ways AutiZmo could be used, such as military or policing application, Demetriades said:  “The robot does not read minds. It just picks up traumas.  It doesn’t literally say ‘mommy I have to go to the bathroom’. It’s not going to this point.” Demetriades conceded however that her mother had expressed this concern. “It’s not a mind reading thing. It’s more about emotions, not thinking,” she insists.That hasn’t stopped her scanning her cats, she has eight, with some interesting results. But pet lovers might need to hold off on a PetiZmo for now. Demetriades and Faraag are busy getting AutiZmo into the world.“One of the things that interests me is creating a robot for clinics to help coma patients,” she said. “They’re completely gone but we know now they can hear their loved one talking to them. If we could be of service in that area…”You May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.

first_imgMonday was the first day for private doctors to say they want to register to work as family physicians (GPs) and paediatricians under the National Health Scheme (Gesy) with authorities saying they were optimistic over the levels of interest.Doctors will have three months to express their interest in registering with Gesy.Officials of the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO), which will implement and manage Gesy, appear optimistic as to the number of doctors who will sign up to register despite the call from more than 30 medical association on their members not to join the health scheme.Following a meeting between President Nicos Anastasiades, Health Minister Constantinos Ioannou and members of the Patients and Friends Federation (Posfp), Ioannou said that there had also been interest by doctors from other countries, mainly Greece due to the salaries offered which he said are much higher than in Greece.He said he did not know if this would result in a mass arrival of Greek doctors but his ministry’s intention, he said, was not to bring in doctors from abroad but get those in Cyprus to join Gesy.Ioannou said that there has been great interest from local doctors and that HIO would announce the first numbers within the coming days.Around 300 doctors have reportedly signed up for the seminars offered by HIO to inform them on how to submit their expression of interest to register as GPs. Seminar participation is not a prerequisite to do so and HIO officials appear optimistic that more doctors could sign up to work as GPs.The minister reiterated his conviction that most private doctors would join Gesy at a later stage, as in other countries that introduced a national health scheme.“There is no health scheme introduced recently that saw all doctors join from the first day,” Ioannou said.Usually, he said, a percentage of doctors join initially while the majority follows within the year.“We expect the same also in our case,” Ioannou said.The minister said that the registering procedure is for private doctors only, as all state doctors will join Gesy, through the Organisation of State Health Services (Okypy).From the beginning of the year, the financial and administrative supervision of state hospitals has been transferred to Okypy, which is tasked with the management, control, supervision and development of public hospitals and primary health care centres. Late last December, all medical and paramedical professionals working in state hospitals were seconded to Okypy.Initially, Ioannou said, Okypy will integrate around 150 doctors currently working in the state health centres into Gesy as GPs.In response to a question on whether doctors currently working in accident and emergency (A&E) departments of state hospitals could apply to work as GPs, Ioannou said that Okyy would decide based on needs in which services it would assign staff.State doctors’ union Pasyki are concerned that if many state doctors signed up as GPs, it would disrupt the smooth operation of hospital departments and A&Es.“It is the employer (Okypy) that will decide to which services doctors currently working (in state hospitals) will go,” Ioannou said.Ioannou said that Anastasiades, during the meeting, reaffirmed the government’s determination to boost state hospitals. He said that the 2019 budget of the now autonomous hospitals, is for growth and provides for new jobs for doctors and nurses. It also provides for the tripling of the budget for equipment.Private doctors will have to create an account at the Gesy website, and after filling out the expression of interest form they have to send all necessary documents by post.After their documents have been checked, they will be given contracts to sign.At the beginning of March, a call will be made for Gesy beneficiaries to register officially on the lists of doctors who will work as GPs. Phase one of Gesy, which is outpatient care, will start in June.Gesy will come into full swing as of June 1, 2020 with inpatient care.From March 1, wage-earners, pensioners, income-earners and state officials will start contributing 1.7 per cent of their income, employers 1.85 per cent, the state 1.65 per cent and the self-employed 2.55 per cent.A few months before the second phase, on March 1, 2020, wage-earners, pensioners, income-earners, and state officials contributing 2.65 per cent of their income, employers 2.9 per cent, the state 4.7 per cent, and the self-employed 4 per cent.For more information on Gesy may be found at www.gesy.org.cy or call 17000.People living abroad may call +357 22017000You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Remand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)UndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

success is guaranteed for example the report notes diversity in educationInformation concerning “the criminal investigation side of it” will be forwarded to the states’ attorney in Steele County he said In light of the resurfacing ofsexual harassment chargesagainst Asian College of Journalism professor Sadanand Menon and a subsequent statement put out by the college on Wednesday the students of ACJ batch 2017-18 have come out with their own statement with regards to the matter The current of batch students have alleged that the college authoritiesdid not follow up duly on the ex-student’s complaint against Menon and also neglected their demand for forming a more robust and inclusive Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) File image of the Asian College of Journalism Chennai Image courtsey: ACJ Facebook page Here is the full-text of their statement: This is a statement from students of the Asian College of Journalism (ACJ) Chennai (Batch of 2017–2018) with regard to: 1) The demands we made to the Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) for a more robust policy against sexual harassment and our experience interacting with them 2) Allegations of sexual misconduct against adjunct faculty member Sadanand Menon We have decided to come forward with this public statement after months of back and forth with the administration We have been disheartened by their attitude which lacks empathy and shows little understanding of the complexities of sexual harassment A liberal progressive institution such as ACJ which trains journalists to be discerning sensitive and to speak truth to power should listen when they themselves are being spoken to In the aftermath of the public statement naming Sadanand Menon we hope the that the ICC will respond with willingness to effect productive policy changes and ensure the safety of students and staff Following is a chronology of events leading up to this statement: 1) In October 2017 Sadanand Menon’s name appeared on The List of Sexual Harassers in Academia (LoSHA) Menon acknowledged this in his class the next day “There is a list going around with my name on it If anyone here wants to talk about this we can” he said Menon proceeded — in his official capacity as a professor using a platform provided by ACJ — to deride the list and speculate as to who put him on it The class remained divided in their opinion 2) Menon narrated his version of an incident with an ex-student He speculated that the ex-student might have been the source who added his name to the list and attributed it to a misunderstanding arising out of differing values associated with sexual freedom Menon could think of no other incident that might have put his name on the list 3) In January 2018 some students connected with the ex-student after seeing her article in The News Minute While she did not name Menon her description of the event made it clear whom Menon had been talking about in class The ex-student’s account was at odds with Menon’s The lines of consent which had been violated were far clearer in her telling Various sources (including the ex-student herself) confirmed that she did not put Menon’s name on the list We were also informed by the ex-student that though she had complained to the ICC in January she hadn’t received a reply as yet 4) Out of concern for students’ safety we began a correspondence with the administration about their policies and committee We found that students were unaware of the existence of the ICC as it was not mentioned during the orientation Contact details for ICC members and the process for filing a complaint were furnished only on the college website One individual didn’t even know that they were listed as a member of the ICC leading us to believe that the ICC was dormant 5) At our insistence a new ICC was constituted and a circular issued but ACJ had only agreed to the most cursory changes in their system They did not agree to having a gender neutral policy or electing student representatives Our request for an update on the allegations against Menon was cleanly ignored 6) Between January and March 2018 details of multiple independent first and second hand allegations against Menon surfaced which deeply shocked and worried us These were in connection with institutes that Menon taught at and at SPACES the prominent cultural venue run by Menon Furthermore we were contacted by an alumnus who mentioned that there were informal complaints about Menon’s conduct in 2011 as well 7) After repeated attempts at conveying our stance to the ICC and asking them to initiate an inquiry based on the ex-student’s complaint we asked for an open meeting Ten ICC members and 85 students were in attendance At the meeting: We brought up the numerous allegations that had surfaced We specifically mentioned that we did not want the ICC to investigate anonymous complaints but requested them to go beyond their legal ambit and address the ex-student’s complaint in light of this brimming whisper network about Menon We sought an update on the steps taken by the college to address the ex-student’s complaint It emerged that the complaint had been received but the ICC had not responded to her a whole month after she wrote to them This concerned the student body immensely as it showed how lightly the college was treating this matter We demanded the adoption of certain specific measures to improve the ICC which were detailed as follows: Take Ambedkar University’s precedent and allow third parties to file complaints Reach out to ex-students with the aim of uncovering cases of sexual harassment against currently employed faculty Such a proactive position would reflect the college’s concern for the safety of students Have student representatives on the ICC to improve accessibility and transparency Furnish contact details for all ICC members (rather than just one email id) to improve accessibility Adopt a gender neutral policy with regard to cases of sexual harassment keeping in mind the safety of gender and sexual minorities on campus Institute at least one workshop on sexual harassment/gender sensitization for students and staff in keeping with the law Include at least one common gender studies lecture apart from the elective subject During the meeting we constantly reminded the ICC that we understand that procedure has to be followed but the creation of the procedure depended on them However the attitude of some members towards the allegations against Menon were very troublesome The new Chair of the ICC at one point told us to consider the man’s reputation before making these claims even though we mentioned these were first and second-hand accounts that had been verified with journalistic rigour Several times members told us to “name names” and asked why the victims wanted to be anonymous and why they would complain after so many months We were constantly asked why said victims haven’t filed a police complaint as yet The Chair also bizarrely asked a student what she would do if her friend was accused of being a sexual harasser Other than this dismaying attitude towards gender justice we felt that ICC members were constantly stonewalling us and refusing to engage by stating “it is the law” This despite the fact that the members confessed they are not familiar with the law and will consult with the legal counsel We deeply regret the nature of this meeting but given the hostility of the Committee and their staunch refusal to engage with us calling attempts at dialogue by students “a war against the college” we feel it was the only way to raise the above points The ICC said they would consult their counsel and get back to us in two weeks On March 28 we received a letter from the ICC dismissing the complaints against Sadanand Menon as defamatory and blaming us for using the meeting to make “shockingly wild allegations” We were further told that our attempt to hold the institution accountable for who it employs while the person in question has himself discussed his involvement in a sexual harassment incident was an attempt to character assassinate The ICC asked us for two weeks to respond to our demands but their response simply stated that they had addressed our concerns multiple times If one looks at the chain of emails shared between students and ICC one will see that these issues were merely skirted around not addressed proactively The ICC had also told us that they had considered the ex-student’s complaint but could not act on it as the procedure was time-barred and the incident happened outside college If they had considered the case why wasn’t the ex-student told that her complaint was under consideration For over a month and a half the ICC did not bother to even acknowledge that a complaint has been received and this worries us tremendously We are extremely concerned about the integrity of the ICC While Sashi Kumar has on record denied having anything to do with the Committee or its proceedings it was clear to us that he was aware of them and was receiving the emails we wrote to the ICC Within ten minutes of our meeting the Committee met with Kumar in plain sight of students We have also ascertained from an adjunct faculty member that Kumar has had a significant role in the ICC’s decision-making A member of the ICC whom a student later spoke to said “Personally I believe all the allegations but our hands are tied” We are now calling out to alumni and others for support While it is essential that everybody is treated with fairness we wonder whether it is possible in this context when the ones in authority and the accused themselves are old friends and peers We raised these questions out of concern for the institution and the students that come here every year ICCs are required to be proactive and sensitive given the nature of the cases they handle We expected ACJ to uphold its reputation and adopt a truly pioneering means of preventing sexual harassment on campus not just redressing complaints Exemplary institutes such as Ambedkar University go so far as to provide financial compensation to those involved in proceedings hold elections for membership to the committee provide counselling and even allow for third parties to register complaints We regret to note that the ICC at ACJ has failed in this regard and chosen instead to fulfill the bare minimum legal requirements ACJ has displayed in no uncertain terms an allegiance to those who are close to the institution and a deep-seated apathy toward the issue of sexual harassment Sincerely Students against sexual harassment Batch of 2017–18 *This statement was written by a group of recent ACJ graduates who have been following the issue since October 2017
