Lalit, M.M. Shantanagoudar and Vineet Saran had initially declined to interfere with the High Court verdict. But it later modified its order and issued notice to the state government, posting the matter for further hearing on July 6.It asked the Uttar Pradesh government to explain why it changed the earlier criteria of 45 per cent cut-off marks for the general category and 40 per cent for the reserved category. On June 9, Top Court had directed the Uttar Pradesh Government to keep 37,339 posts of Assistant Teachers (Shiksha Mitras) vacant, thereby staying the ongoing selection process of teachers in the state.It was after passing of the said order that the petitions were listed for July 14. However, confusions ensued as State Government had begun recruitment processes for filling up the remaining posts which had not been filled up via examination.The Court observed that it was prima facie borne from the records that the State Government of UP was proceeding with the selection to fill up all posts, despite the May 21 order, wherein the Top Court had passed interim orders directing that, “All Shiksha Mitras who are presently holding their posts as Assistant Teachers shall not be disturbed”.Next Storylast_img read more

Papadosio Brings Music, Tech, Art, Action To “Earth Night” In Chicago [Photos]

first_imgLoad remaining images Photo: Daniel Ojeda On Saturday night, Papadosio showcased their Earth Night event at the Concord Music Hall in Chicago, IL. The mission of “Music – Tech – Art – Action” was present from the beginning of the day, when the band hosted a variety of important workshops for concertgoers to attend. With the day fading into night, Papadosio segued with music on the night of the winter solstice beginning.PHOTOS: Papadosio Drops Live PA Set At Earth Night Pre-PartyThe music began with Dirtwire (featuring David Satori of Beats Antique) and Lapa (featuring Ilya Goldberg of Emancipator) getting things warmed up. When Papadosio took the stage for their headlining performance, fans were relieved to see guitarist and singer Anthony Thogmartin with the band–as he was running a fever prior to the set. Thogmartin showed no signs of illness as the band opened their set with “2am.” The shorter song, and perhaps one of the only Papadosio songs that could ever be found on pop radio, had Thogmartin and keyboardist Billy Brouse on acoustic guitars. A monster “Paradigm Shift” followed, highlighting the band’s ability to stretch an instrumental song, with rocking power chords from Thogmartin to close. “Cushion” had a great segue into “Garden,” and the crowd went wild when the familiar bass line of the latter song finally crystallized into form. “Method of Control” followed and featured a very slow, jazzy ending to the song–unique to the normal vocal ending.EXCLUSIVE: Papadosio Announces Spring 2018 Tour With Aqueous & Desmond JonesThe highlight of the night came in “All I Knew” when the band brought up violinist Ilya Goldberg for some intense improvisation on the fan favorite. The violin was an added touch to the well-known song. Of course, everybody sang along with the chorus line- “All that I knew was love.” A very rare number in “Planting the Seeds of Life” popped up next. A spacey “Therian” closed out the set–while the psychedelic paintings and illustrations began to take shape in the back of the venue.Papadosio To Ring In 2018 Proper With Zoogma, Push/Pull, & MoreFor the encore, Papadosio played “Euclidean Lights,” the only song performed off their latest EP Pattern Integrities, and then closed things out with “Night Colors.” The fan favorite instrumental had everyone dancing their hardest despite the clock winding down to two in the morning. With hardly any other bands playing or touring in the month of December, one usually has to wait until the New Year runs to get their live music fix. Luckily, Papadosio brought the annual Earth Night to Chicago for an inspiring success this year. Next up for the band is their New Year’s run in Nashville, TN.
