Vigilance Awareness Week

Vigilance Awareness Week is being observed from today across the country to promote probity in public life and achieve a corruption free society. The theme of the week this year is - Public participation in promoting integrity and eradicating Corruption. 

The observance of week commenced with pledge taking by public servants in the Ministries, Departments, PSUs, Banks and all other Organizations. Addressing media in New Delhi, Central Vigilance Commissioner, K V Chowdary said, during the week, several functions will be organized to create awareness among the people about the corrupt practices as it adversely affects the development of the country.

He said, public will have to take resolve to irradiate the menace by not taking part in corrupt practices. Emphasizing the need to make it a public movement, Mr. Chowdary said, the Commission will visit schools, colleges and industry bodies and other institutions to seek support for creating awareness against the corruptions. 

The Commission has envisaged a concept of Integrity Pledge to enlist the support and commitment of the people and organization for upholding the highest standers of ethical conduct, honesty and integrity. The week is observed every year from 31st October, the birthday Anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.

 

Spanish conservative leader Mariano Rajoy was sworn in as prime minister on Monday by King Felipe, after more than 10 months of political jockeying to form a government following two inconclusive elections. Rajoy, leader of the People’s Party, is returning to power after losing his absolute majority, and will have to strike deals with opposition parties to pass legislation in a fragmented and hostile parliament.
Italian authorities said Monday they were taking care of more than 15,000 people left homeless by the country’s most powerful earthquake in nearly 40 years. Although Sunday’s 6.6-magnitude tremor did not result in any deaths, the third powerful quake in just over two months has left thousands of homes in ruins or structurally unsafe and emptied a string of villages and small towns across the country’s mountainous central regions. The national civil protection agency said Monday it was providing assistance to 15,000 people affected by Sunday’s quake, which was so powerful it caused cracks in buildings in Rome, some 120km away from the epicenter near the Umbrian town of Norcia

India’s Palpreet Singh Selected by the Long Island Nets in the 2016 NBA D-League Draft


- The ACG-NBA Jump program winner will represent the Brooklyn Nets’ Affiliate team in NBA D-League - 


Mumbai, October 31, 2016: Palpreet Singh, winner of National Finals of ACG-NBA Jump, India’s first national basketball talent search program, was selected 11th in the fourth Round of the NBA D-League Draft held in New York on October 30, 2016.  The 21-year old was drafted by the Long Island Nets, affiliate team of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets.

The 6ft 9in hoopster, who has been training at the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan, said he had trained hard and was confident of getting picked by a D League team in the draft.  “I am happy with the efforts I have put in and I will continue to work hard with Long Island Nets as this is just the beginning.”

Palpreet, who impressed NBA champion Brian Shaw in the national finals of the 2016 ACG NBA Jump program held in February, was part of the 2016 NBA D-League National Tryouts held on August 14 in New York.  More than 200 pro basketball prospects showcased their skills in front of NBA D-League player personnel executives, coaches, and industry scouts that day.

Palpreet Singh was discovered as part of an NBA talent search in India.  There are more NBA talent searches planned in India and other countries as part of the league's ongoing international initiatives. The NBA is devoted to identifying and developing talent abroad both on and off the floor.

The NBA D-League’s 16th season tips off on Nov. 11 with record 22 teams.  The teams will hold training camps beginning on Oct. 31, and will trim their rosters to 10 players on Nov. 10, in advance of the start of the season.  The Long Island Nets will play in the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic Division, along with the Maine Red Claws (Boston Celtics), Westchester Knicks (New York Knicks), Raptors 905 (Toronto Raptors), Delaware 87ers (Philadelphia 76ers) and Erie BayHawks (Orlando Magic)

Satnam Singh, who became the first Indian to be drafted into the NBA when he was selected 52ndoverall by the Dallas Mavericks in the 2015 NBA Draft, represents the Texas Legends, the minor league affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks.
