MSP School


“Everything you want is on the other side of fear. To be successful, get to the other side of fear.” That was Malappuram’s message to its children who fought an international junior team in the finals of the Subroto Cup football championship held in Delhi on Monday.
The children of Malabar Special Police (MSP) School, Malappuram, literally got to the other side of fear and scored two goals against Ukraine’s FC Dynamo Kyiv.
They became the first team to score a goal against the mighty Kyiv but that was not enough to lift the cup.
The MSP School lost to the foreign giants 5-2. But the Malappuram boys not only made history by asserting their football prowess in the Subroto Cup but also gave the entire State proud moments to celebrate.
Win or no win, the MSP campus ruptured into revelry on Monday morning. Local crowds too joined the students and teachers of the school to watch the match live on giant screens erected at the MSP community hall.
The happiness on the MSP campus was apparently infectious.
Every police personnel of the MSP camp, including its Commandant and former international footballer U. Sharafali, looked upbeat on Monday.
“They did us proud. They did the entire State proud,” said Sharafali.
It was the first time a Kerala team played the finals of the Subroto Cup in its 54-year history. No team from Kerala had advanced beyond the quarterfinals before.
The MSP is planning to accord a grand welcome to its boys who will return from Delhi on Thursday.

BANK CAREER 
Scores of students and job aspirants seem to be turning towards the banking industry as the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS) has stated that banks would recruit close to 7.5 lakh people in the next five years. Experts and banking professionals state that banking would be the most favoured career destination in the next few years because of the large number of job opportunities.
The IBPS is an autonomous body that conducts the Common Written Exams once every six months and provides a gateway for students to get placed in various banks such as Axis Bank, Allahabad Bank, Canara Bank, and Central Bank of India. Almost all banks except the State Bank of India and its five associate banks conduct their recruitments based on this test.
The banks hire people for various posts, including clerical officers, probationary officers and middle management. According to the statistics on the IBPS website, the organisation has been able to fill 79,236 vacancies in 2010-2011.
Explaining the procedure, K. P. Muralidhar, General Manager of Syndicate Bank, said that all the registered candidates are first expected to take up the Common Written Examinations and are given a score based on their performance. “Each bank has a different cut-off mark for the interview. Students who score well are eligible to sit for the interview which is conducted by individual banks separately. ”
Mr. Muralidhar pointed out that this system is advantageous to the banks as well as the students. Bank employers said that the common test helps them save time as each bank does not have to conduct its own examination. This option is also beneficial to the students as it helps them save time and prevents them the trouble of taking up several examinations.
However, bank officials said that there is low awareness about the pattern of the exam among the youngsters in Karnataka. Only a small percentage of the applicants are recruited in the State when compared to neighbouring States like Andhra Pradesh and Kerala. Coaching centre experts stress on the need for the youngsters to prepare themselves thoroughly to score well in the examinations.
Vijaya R., Director, Aditi Career Academy, who coaches students for these exams said that understanding the procedure and hard work are extremely essential for students to clear the exams. “Apart from that, students should also read books and newspapers to enhance their general knowledge. It is important for students to pay special attention to reasoning, English and mathematics.”
Marks card
Ms. Vijaya said that the exams are conducted four times in a year for clerical posts, and twice in a year for the post of officers and for Regional Rural Banks (RRBs). “Students who have passed SSLC, Pre-University and degree, between the age group of 18 and 28, can appear for the exams. After appearing for the CWE, the IBPS will give a marks card, which will be valid for a period of one year. Meanwhile, the candidates, with the help of the marks card, can apply for jobs in as many as 19 PSU banks and get employed after appearing the interview.”
Ramesh, who has been coaching youths for the bank exams in Bijapur, said, “Reading national newspapers is very essential as it helps the youths to gain general knowledge and keep themselves abreast of the day-to-day developments taking place in the world and it also improves their English.”
The next set of exams is expected to be scheduled in November and further details can be obtained by logging on to http://www.ibps.in/html/clientele.htm

Mass Communication Careers

A decade back, mass communication classes used to had only a handful number of students but now scenario has changed immensely. The vast job opportunities thrown by it in different areas like Newspapers, journals, advertising firms, radio, production houses, publication houses and Television are enough to fascinate any student towards taking up this course vis-à-vis others. Apart from number of jobs, the challenge, creative satisfaction and good remuneration package that these jobs are some of the other factors for the students to move towards it. Plus, if one wants name and fame this is the best field. By taking up professions like Radio Jockeys or Anchors one can shot to fame instantly.

Mass communication course encompasses various streams. From advertising to Journalism to Public Relations, a student can opt for any field he likes.



Mass Communication Careers
A student who takes up Mass Communication has number of career options before him. He/she can opt as a Copy writer if he wants to go into Advertising, a Journalist if he has a nose for news and Public Relations officer if he wants to be the image builder of the company. After completing their course in mass communication one can work as a copywriter, advertising professional, journalist, news anchor and a PR Officer. Though the nature of their work varies widely, most of them have to work in tight deadlines. 
'News' for instance cannot be taken lightly and put off for another day as it would become stale and won’t sell. A journalist has to rush whenever any news breaks in. He has a 24-hour job. A copywriter too has to meet the deadlines. Anybody planning to enter this field must prepare himself to work in odd hours. Like other fields where the working hours are generally found to be between 9am and 5pm, in the media field one has to work in shifts. Though there are some positions in the media where one is required to contribute fixed eight hours of work during the day time, but such jobs are very few. In a nutshell, the field of media is quite interesting and rewarding but at the same time it demands lots of time, energy and hard work from one. So if you have the passion to defeat deadlines and ready to work as it comes to you at any time of the day, you are the right person this industry is looking for. Various mass communication related careers and the nature of their work are described below:Journalist :
A Journalist’s work is basically to collect the news and file it at the end of the day. But gathering news is not easy as it seems. In order to get the news, a Journalist has to win the confidence of the people. His day starts with going to the office and then checking with his sources about the happenings around. If he has some news, he goes to the field to cover it. After the news is collected, a journalist is required to come back to the office and write it for the reader. A journalist usually gets free at 9 in the evening (every organization has own timings) but he can be again sent to field in case any news breaks out.
Television and online journalism has taken off in the last 5 years only while radio is still a popular source of news in remote-villages. A student who wants to be a journalist should have a keen interest in current affairs. He should have an inquisitive mind and should have the ability of going along well with the people. Patience is another quality which is looked after in a good Journalist.

IIT-Kanpur barred from taking foreign donations

The union ministry of home affairs (MHA) has barred Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Kanpur from accepting foreign donations, citing the premier institute's laid-back attitude in submitting documents supporting the usage of foreign funds, an official said.

The institute has been barred under the provisions of Foreign Contribution Registration Act (FCRA), 2010, with immediate effect, informed sources said.

The prime objective of the act is to "regulate the acceptance and utilisation of foreign contribution and foreign hospitality by persons and associations working in the important areas of national life".

While IIT-K authorities refused to react to the development "at this point", MHA has officially put the institute's name in the list of organisations whose FCRA registration has been cancelled.

In the list for 2011-12, which carries 4,139 such institutions, 72 are from Uttar Pradesh.

MHA officials said the move to scrap the FCRA registration was "necessitated" after these top educational institutions failed to "submit satisfactory supporting documents of the fund usage".

"The IIT-Kanpur has been very lethargic in supporting the usage of these donations in their annual receipts and hence we were forced to act in such a manner," an official said.

Besides IIT-K, FCRA registration of eight other premier institutions in the country, including Jamia Milia Islamia and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), has also been scrapped.

While no official communique was received by the institute, officials said they have been "sounded on the matter".

"We are aware about the matter... We are positive that this decision would not, in any way, hamper our growth," a faculty member said, adding that the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) audits the financial transactions of IIT-K.

However, a senior faculty member admitted that the decision "would certainly create a lot of problems".

"For many researches and other activities, foreign funding by our alumni is very crucial. MHA's decision will hit us for sure," he added.

Another IIT-K professor said that last year the institute was exempted from suchrequirements as pressed by the government on the ground that the CAG was a "competent authority" thus foreign funding could not be stopped.

"Why did they bail everyone earlier and why are they hounding us now," the professor asked.

IIT-K, one of the foremost institutes in the country for higher education, receives generous grants from its alumni and overseas organisations for research and other activities.

According to MHA officials, IIT-K (FCRA registration No.R-136530050) received foreign funding amounting to about Rs.6 crore in the previous financial year.

In 2010-11, the institute's planning and resource generation department received a donation of Rs.4.08 crore from 772 donors of which 501 were domestic donors while 271 donors were from foreign countries, official said.
