Now, law books in Braille for administrators

first_imgFor the first time, all law books required by visually impaired administrative officials in Odisha are being printed in Braille format. The law books are being transcribed into Braille and then printed at the Red Cross Computerised Braille Press in Berhampur, the only Braille press in the State. Till now 20 volumes of law books have been printed in Braille, including books on basic laws as well as service rules of government servants. According to Braille press manager Prakash Narayan Rath, 17 more law books would be printed in Braille in the coming months. “Last year two visually impaired youths qualified for the Odisha Administrative Service. There was a need for law books in Braille for their training and future operation. So in December last year, the Social Security and Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities Department ordered printing of all law books of concern to administrators in Braille form,” said Mr. Rath. The law books that have been already been transcribed into Braille include the ones related to law and order like the Indian Penal Code, Code of Criminal Procedure, Dowry Prevention Act and Orissa Police Act. To help visually impaired administrators in revenue matters, Braille books on Manual of Tahsil Accounts, Orissa Survey and Settlement Manual, Orissa Government Land Settlement Act, Orissa Mutation Manual, Orissa Moneylenders Manual and Orissa Law of Mines and Minerals have been printed. Braille law books also include Prevention of Corruption Act, Essential Commodities Act, Orissa Irrigation Act, Orissa Schedule Areas Transfer of Immovable Property Act and Orissa Panchayat Samity Manual. The compilation of Government of Odisha Service Rules in four volumes and Orissa Civil Service Rules-1962 in two volumes have also been printed in Braille. According to Mr. Rath, transcribing law books into Braille will have long-lasting benefits. “In the computerised Braille press, we have saved the e-version of all these books and whenever the need arrives we can easily reprint them,” he said. Former Ganjam Bar Association secretary Manoj Patnaik welcomed the decision, saying it will encourage more and more visually impaired persons to take up government administrative jobs.last_img read more

Thabo Mwaniki Commits to Oklahoma State

first_imgJust two days after picking up an offer from Oklahoma State following a visit to Stillwater, 2017 defensive back Thabo Mwaniki announced that he has committed to play for the Cowboys on twitter:Thank You God.? pic.twitter.com/1oS6OFGQif— Thabo Mwaniki (@thabomwaniki) July 30, 2016 If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

I mentioned earlier in the week that Mwaniki had confirmed his visit to Stillwater in The Reload; even stating that an offer seemed imminent in my opinion. The offer was extended, and Mwaniki wasted no time pulling the trigger.The Denton Guyer defensive back pledges to OSU over offers from Air Force, Army, Colorado, Colorado State, UConn, Fresno State, Purdue, SMU, UTSA, North Texas,  and New Mexico. At 5-11, 180-pounds, Mwaniki is a versatile athlete who is a do-it-all on offense and defense, and has good experience playing both defensive back and safety. Expect OSU to put him to good use on defense either at safety or cornerback and with his experience at both, he’s a luxury addition with the ability to move all over the field.last_img read more
