வளைகுடா நாடுகளில் வெப்பநிலை மேலும் உயரும் என்கிறது ஒரு ஆய்வு

வளைகுடா நாடுகளில் வெப்பநிலை மேலும் உயரும் என்கிறது ஒரு ஆய்வு

 

வளைகுடா நாடுகளில் வெப்பக்காற்று வீசும்போது வெப்பநிலை சகித்துக்கொள்ள முடியாத நிலைக்கு உயரலாம் என்கிறது ஆய்வு

 

உலகம் வெப்பமடையும் போக்கு குறித்த ஒரு அமெரிக்க ஆய்வு, உலகின் சில பகுதிகளில் வெப்ப நிலை மிக அதிகமாக உயர்ந்து, அப்பகுதிகளில் வசிக்கும் மக்கள் வெளியே வரவே முடியாத நிலையை எட்டும் என்று கூறுகிறது.

மிக அதிக உஷ்ண நிலை மற்றும் ஈரப்பதம் ஆகியவை இணைந்த ஒரு நிலை காரணமாக உடல் வேர்வையை வெளியிட்டு அதன் மூலம் குளிர்ச்சியடைவதை இயலாததாக்கிவிடும் என்று அது கூறுகிறது.

அமெரிக்காவின் மேசச்சூசெட்ஸ் தொழில்நுட்பக் கழகத்தினால் நடத்தப்பட்ட இந்த ஆய்வு, குறிப்பாக வளைகுடா பகுதி நாடுகளைக் கோடிட்டுக் காட்டுகிறது.

இந்த பருவநிலை மாற்றம் தடுக்கப்படாவிட்டால், வளைகுடா நாடுகளில் , இந்த நூற்றாண்டின் இறுதியில், வெப்பக் காற்றலைகள் வீசும்போது, உஷ்ணநிலை சகித்துக்கொள்ளமுடியாத அளவுக்கு அதிகமான நிலைக்கு உயரும் என்று அது கூறுகிறது.

உலகம் வெப்பமடைதலை பாதுகாப்பான வரம்புக்குள் வைப்பதற்கு, கரியமில வாயு உமிழ்வுகள் குறைக்கப்படவேண்டும் என்று இந்த ஆய்வு அறிக்கையை எழுதிய வல்லுநர்கள் கூறுகிறார்கள்.

Kuwait, India ink accord on recruitment of nurses - Hiring will be done only through govt agencies

Kuwait, India ink accord on recruitment of nurses – Hiring will be done only through govt agencies

 

KUWAIT: The Ministry of Health (MoH) and the Indian Embassy yesterday signed an agreement finalizing the modalities of recruitment of nurses from India and paving the way for hiring nurses only through three government agencies. Dr Mahmoud Al-Abdulhadi, assistant undersecretary for legal affairs at the MoH, and Dr Jamal Mansour Al-Harbi, assistant undersecretary for medical services affairs at the MoH, and Indian Ambassador Sunil Jain signed the agreement at a brief ceremony held at the MoH yesterday.

The agreement puts to rest uncertainty over the issue that has been hanging ever since India banned overseas recruitment of nurses by private agencies from April 30, 2015. Several agents in India had even moved court to challenge the government decision.

After signing the agreement, the officials expressed optimism that the agreement would put an end to large-scale corruption and cheating by private recruiting agents who used to recruit nurses from India to Kuwait after taking huge sums as bribes and commission. “Both Kuwait and Indian authorities will work together to make recruitments of nurses corruption-free and transparent,” Jain told Kuwait Times.

The ministry of health plans to recruit nearly 3,000 nurses within a year and the majority of them will be from Kerala. The India government decided in March to route the recruitment of nurses through three government agencies – Norka Roots, the field agency of the Non-Resident Keralites Affairs Department, Overseas Development and Employment Promotion Consultants (ODEPC), under the labor department of the state government, and the Overseas Manpower Corporation run by the Tamil Nadu government.

An Indian delegation comprising of Principal Secretary, Labor, Tom Jose, Norka Secretary Rani George, Chief Executive Officer R S Kannan and ODEPC managing director Dr G L Muralidharan had visited Kuwait in March and held talks with ministry of health officials.

The ambassador said Dr Abdulhadi and Dr Al-Harbi would lead a Kuwaiti delegation to Kerala in the second week of December and hold talks with Norka minister K C Joseph and other officials on follow-up action. There is a consensus that only a nominal amount may be charged from candidates for jobs in the MoH as recruitment fee, an amount that does not exceed KD 100.

The Indian government banned private agents following reports in local and Indian media that agents in Kuwait in collusion with their counterparts in India allegedly take huge sums from candidates ranging from KD 6,000 to KD 12,000 for nursing jobs in Kuwait. In some instances, recruiters would bring large numbers of nurses after taking massive recruitment fees and then let them go after working for only a short period so that they could again recruit a new pool of candidates and take another round of fees.

The Indian embassy in Kuwait piled pressure on the Indian government to put an end to this malpractice, while the Kerala government requested the center to appoint a nodal agency to conduct overseas recruitment of nurses from India. Members of parliament in Kuwait also raised the issue in parliament, setting the stage for bilateral talks between the two governments.
The India government’s decision has however unsettled many private recruiting agents and middlemen who were used to pocketing millions of rupees over the past few years from illegal recruitments. According to recent reports, one private agent, who is the alleged kingpin of the recruitment scandal in Kerala, last month conducted interviews of nurses in Dubai for jobs at Kuwait’s MoH. The agent, circumventing the government ban, reportedly took candidates from India to Dubai for written tests, charging around KD 14,000 from each candidate.

Workers' signature needed to renew contracts: Ministry of Labour

Workers’ signature needed to renew contracts: Ministry of Labour

New measures for work permits, previously known as labour cards, by early next year

 

Abu Dhabi: The Ministry of Labour has announced new measures to renew work permits, previously known as labour cards, as well as expired contracts, by early next year.

 

Speaking about the new requirements, Humaid Bin Deemas Al Suwaidi, Assistant Under-Secretary for Labour Affairs, said from the beginning of next year, new decrees will require “clear signature” of employees for contract renewal and the issuing of new work permits, which will put an end to the current work permit renewal procedures which simply follow a notification from employers.

 

He explained, “Workers, under the new procedures, will enjoy better options of either accepting renewal of the contract according to marked privileges and stipulated requirements in the new contract, or amend these privileges and conditions upon agreement by both parties, which actively contributes to promoting a strong working relationship. It will also enable employees to completely end the relationship, search for alternatives, or return back home.”

 

“Based on studies, the new decrees will end labour disputes caused by unjust labour contract submissions made by employers without referring to the labourers themselves, and getting final approval before issuing a new work permit,” he said.

 

Saqr Bin Ghobash Saeed Ghobash, Minister of Labour, said that the three decrees come within the framework of developing legislation to regulate the labour market, confirming that the MoL is moving to a new phase based on establishing and promoting a balanced and productive business relationship between both sides, based on transparency.

 

The MoL is currently preparing to implement the new decisions on schedule as an effort to ease procedures between employers and workers, particularly in relation to work offers that employees agree upon, whether outside or inside the country, and ensure the highlighting of wages and breaks, as well as other rights and duties.

 

Al Suwaidi went on to say that the ministry had conducted a study examining the hiring processes in private enterprises, and took into account, through its new decrees, the active measures taken to issue a contract in the preferred language of labourers prior to their signature. This he said, will help “overcome any difficulties that both ends may encounter through several employment channels, including employment agencies or by dispatching company representatives to the targeted country or even through employment websites.”

 

The new decrees are interrelated and frame the relationship between both sides, starting by enabling the worker to review an offer before travelling abroad then signing the new unified contract with the employer upon entry, from which point a contractual relationship is recorded into the ministry’s database highlighting all rights and obligations as per the contract.

 

If the worker is in the UAE, the worker must duly sign the employment offer, as stipulated by the decree, before the employer applies for tentative approval to employ the worker.
