Google has updated its search quality raters guidelines today, this is an update from the October 2021 update. You can obtain the full 167-page PDF raters guidelines over here. This version has refreshed language in the new overview section, a refined YMYL section, with more on low-quality content, YMYL, E-A-T, and more.

What is new. Google posted these bullet points on what is new on the last page of this PDF.

  • Refreshed language to be aligned with the newly published Search Quality Rater Guidelines: An Overview
  • Refined YMYL to focus on syllabus that require a high level of accuracy to prevent significant harm; added a new table of examples and refreshed existing examples
  • Added clarifications to Low and Lowest Page Quality sections to emphasize that the type and level of E-A-T depends on the purpose of the page, and that low quality and harmful pages can occur on any type of website
  • Refactored language throughout to be applicable across all devices types
    Minor changes throughout (updated screenshots; removed or updated outdated examples and concepts; removed user location when irrelevant; etc.)
  • Also, the previous version was a 171-pages, this revised document is 167-pages.

Why we care. Although search quality evaluators’ ratings do not directly impact rankings (as Google clarified in the document), they do provide feedback that helps Google Boost its algorithms. It is important to spend some time looking at what Google changed in this updated version of the document and compare that to last year’s version of the document to see if we can learn more about Google’s intent on what websites and web pages Google prefers to rank. Google made those additions, edits, and deletions for a reason.

Killexams : Microsoft reviews M365 resilience after Indian outage

Asia In Brief Microsoft has ordered a review of its resilience regime for Microsoft 365 after finding an outage to the service in India was caused by "a physical fiber networking event" at a partner's edge datacenter location.

The outage took place on July 15. In a preliminary incident report [PDF] Microsoft explained that the problem arose because cloud services use "an Edge computing architecture with localized Data Centers (Edge sites)."

"By design, a user's connection will be routed by their Internet Service Provider (ISP) to their local Edge site, where it is then is passed to high speed fiber data center links (pathways) into the Microsoft network," the report reads. Within Microsoft's network, user connection requests are then distributed amongst processing components governed by the services and features to which the user is attempting to connect.

"Microsoft has multiple Edge sites in Chennai (South India), managed by different local ISP third-party partners," the document adds. The site involved in this incident is managed by a local ISP third-party partner. When that partner experienced "a physical fiber networking event on the devices which manage the connection pathways from their Chennai Edge site to Microsoft's Data Centers," things went pear-shaped.

Or, as Microsoft put it: "This resulted in this specific Chennai Edge site becoming isolated from the wider Microsoft network, and caused impact to any user request which had been routed to this specific ISP's Chennai Edge site, as the request could not be passed into the wider Microsoft network."

Microsoft has given itself three jobs after the incident:

  • Working with the third-party partner to build better resilience against this type of fiber event to stop this issue reoccurring;
  • Investigating the existing automated failover process to confirm that the logic, which quickly fails over public internet traffic to alternate Edge sites when a specific Edge site becomes isolated, worked as expected;
  • Reviewing options to optimize Edge site failovers to reduce potential impact times.

The incident report was made available to Microsoft 365 subscribers.

Amazon, Alibaba, risk ban in Indonesia after missing filing deadline

A deadline issued by the Indonesia's Ministry of Communication and Informatics that requires internet companies to file details of their security and privacy arrangements has passed, and Amazon and Alibaba appear to have missed it.

The deadline to register for for Private Scope Electronic System Operators (PSE) status ended last week on July 21, 2022. Entities that don't secure PSE registration face penalties that can include bans on local operations.

"For PSEs that have not registered until the final deadline, the Ministry of Communication and Informatics will monitor the traffic of each digital platform from the largest level in Indonesia," said the Ministry, adding that the sites with the biggest traffic would be the first to be reprimanded.

"The [first] stage is a written reprimand (warning), then there are fines and the last one is a temporary termination of access," said Ministry director general, Semuel Abrijani Pangerapan. He added that cutoff companies could regain access after compliance.

As Indonesia's deadline for registration approached, netizens noticed that the register of PSE holders omitted several global web giants and speculated Indonesia could be forced to block a chunk of the internet.

At the time of writing, Google and YouTube were not listed as having registered, but The Register understands the ad and video giant has filed its paperwork.

But over the weekend Pangerapan said Amazon and Alibaba had not registered, extended the deadline to do so for a few days, and warned that Indonesia will not hesitate to exercise its powers.

South Korea tweaks uni standards to grow semiconductor workforce

South Korea will designate twenty universities as specializing in semiconductor research and ease university admission requirements to find 150,000 new folks trained to work in the chip industry over the next decade, according to education minister Park Soon-ae.

Qualifications for professors will also be lowered. The Ministry predicted this action will expand student places for chip-related higher education by 5,7000 places per year. Total talent under this plan would rise from 177,000 to around 304,000 by 2032.

The increased talent pool coincides with an aim for South Korea to increase the amount of homegrown semiconductor materials, components and equipment from 30 percent to 50 percent by 2030.

The Ministry said the government and private sector together would invest $230 million in small business as well as mergers and acquisitions of chip design firms beginning next year. Additional financial investments are being made into power development feasibility studies, and automotive and AI chips.

AWS SaaS Portal comes to APAC

Amazon Web Services has brought its WorkSpaces Web portal to four regions in the Asia Pacific.

WorkSpaces Web provides browser-based access to internal web sites and SaaS services, and handles authentication to multiple sites without requiring users to log on to each.

The service went live in the Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) regions last week.

The four additions mean WorkSpaces Web now operates in seven AWS regions, making it one of the few services that has a larger footprint in APAC than the rest of the Amazonian realm.

India reveals bulk content bans

India's minister of information and broadcasting, Anurag Thakur, last week announced his Ministry has required blocks of 94 YouTube channels, 19 social media accounts and 747 URLs. The minister said the blocks were needed to curb the spread of fake news and anti-India propaganda.

Thailand deployed Pegasus spyware

Cybersecurity watchdog Citizen Lab last week reported the NSO Group's Pegasus spyware was used widely against Thai pro-democracy protestors and activists between October 2020 and November 2021. Speaking in parliament last Tuesday, a Thai minister admitted to use of the surveillance software, but said it was used in a limited format and only for national security or drug matters.

The official, Chaiwut Thanakamanusorn, who serves as minister of digital economy and society, did not name Pegasus, but instead referred to spyware that infiltrates mobile phones. His Ministry has previously denied using the tool.

By Friday, the minister backtracked and said his comments were only general observations.

"I said I knew of the system that is used on security and drug (suppression) but I did not say that it existed in the Thai government," Chiawat reportedly said.

A declaration on NSO's website states: "We would like to emphasize that NSO sells its technologies solely to law enforcement and intelligence agencies of vetted governments for the sole purpose of saving lives through preventing crime and terror acts. NSO does not operate the system and has no visibility to the data." ®

Killexams : Discover How You Could Save Up to $40 a Month on Your Internet Bill

This story is part of Home Tips, CNET's collection of practical advice for getting the most out of your home, inside and out.

High gas prices. Soaring inflation. Plummeting consumer confidence. In uncertain economic times, it can be empowering to find steps to save some money, even if just a small way. That's where the federal government's Lifeline program may help. 

Lifeline began in 1985 to help low-income families afford phone service. It provides a monthly benefit of $9.25 to help offset those costs. Eligible individuals and families on tribal lands may receive up to $34.25. While Lifeline still covers traditional landline and wireless plans, the program was broadened in 2016 to include home internet service.   

CNET Home Tips logo

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we've learned how important it is to be connected at home. Whether it's working from home, tending our health via telemedicine or simply trying to stay sane by binge-watching content on our favorite streaming services -- having a reliable broadband connection is fundamental to our daily routines. 

A discount on your home internet service can help you stay tethered to job prospects, schooling opportunities, family services and emergency care. The Lifeline program is available to consumers across the country, but eligibility is limited to low-income families and individuals. Let us walk you through what you need to know to determine if you qualify. If you do, you may find that the Lifeline discount also opens the door to additional savings -- more on that below. 

1. Determine if you're eligible

While Lifeline is available across the US, not everyone is eligible to receive the benefit. Its goal is to assist low-income households and individuals to stay connected to school, work, play, utilities, health care and other social services. To participate in Lifeline, at least one household member must fit the program requirements. 

If anyone in your home currently participates in government assistance plans -- including Federal Public Housing Assistance, Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Supplemental Security Income, Tribal-specific programs (Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance, Tribally-Administered Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations, and Head Start) and Veterans Pension and Survivors Benefit Programs -- you should be eligible to receive the Lifeline discount.

Even if you do not participate in any of the above programs, you might also be eligible for Lifeline based on your income. Your household will qualify if your income is less than or equal to 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Here's what that looks like:

Lifeline qualification: Total income

No. of people in the household 135% of the poverty guideline (48 states and Wash., DC) 135% of the poverty guideline (Alaska) 135% of the poverty guideline (Hawaii)
1 $18,347 $22,937 $21,101
2 $24,719 $30,902 $28,431
3 $31,091 $38,867 $35,762
4 $37,463 $46,832 $43,092
5 $43,835 $54,797 $50,423
6 $50,207 $62,762 $57,753
7 $56,579 $70,727 $65,084
8 $62,951 $78,692 $72,414

Once you get over eight people, add $6,372 to the last amount listed for each additional individual. Also, the numbers are slightly higher for folks living in Alaska and Hawaii, as you can see above. In Alaska, you should add $7,965 to the final amount listed for each individual beyond eight. Consumers living in Hawaii should add $7,331 for each individual beyond eight. 

2. Get your documents and paperwork together

Whether you decide to sign up online or complete your application process by mail, you'll need to gather several documents to help you verify your eligibility. In almost all cases, you'll need statements dated within the past 12 months. Acceptable documentation includes (but isn't limited to):

  • Proof of income (some options are a current pay stub, a Social Security statement of benefits or a tax return). Note: If the paperwork does not cover a full income year, it must reflect three consecutive months.
  • Proof of program participation (including a notice letter of participation or statement of benefits).

Keep these documents and make copies to send. The complete list of acceptable documents is available online via the Lifeline Support Center.

3. Sign up for Lifeline

For the most part, to apply for Lifeline broadband benefits, you can apply online through the Lifeline National Verifier, an application system set up by the Federal Communications Commission and run by the Universal Service Administrative Company. You can go to the site, enter your name, address and identifying information and begin the process of qualifying for benefits. The two exceptions are Oregon and Texas. Applicants from those two regions must go through their states' specific application process. 

If you prefer, you can also choose to apply by mail. You will need to print out an application (a PDF is available on the USAC site), complete it and send copies (make sure you keep all your original paperwork -- send duplicates only) of all required documents to USAC, Lifeline Support Center, PO Box 7081, London, KY 40742. You can also request that an application be mailed to you. To do so, either email or call Lifeline at 800-234-9473.

Once you start your application for Lifeline, you have 45 days to complete the process. Additionally, once you qualify for Lifeline, you'll have 90 days to either sign up for service with an internet company or apply your Lifeline benefit to your current broadband provider. 

Lifeline can unlock additional savings on your internet service

You've just been accepted for Lifeline and now get the $9.25 benefit on your internet service. Great! Even better? Enrollment in Lifeline means you're also eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program, an FCC initiative that started in 2022. It provides a $30 discount on your internet bill (and up to $75 for households on Tribal lands). As a participant of Lifeline, you can contact your internet service provider directly to enroll in the ACP. It simplifies the process and saves you the time of having to go through the full ACP application. 

Related to Lifeline and ACP, the White House recently announced that 20 providers across the country have committed to offering plans with a minimum of 100 megabits-per-second obtain speeds for $30 or less. The Biden administration also announced the launch of a new website,, that will help users determine their ACP and Lifeline eligibility and guide them to available resources.

The list of 20 participating ISPs:

This is not a complete list of all providers that have opted into the ACP. To determine if an area ISP is participating in the ACP, please check out the FCC's state-by-state ACP participants list.

Is there anything else you need to know?

There is only one Lifeline benefit permitted per household. If you choose to use the discount on your home internet, you cannot get an additional discount on phone service. You must choose one or the other.

Also, eligible people must recertify their eligibility yearly to continue receiving the Lifeline discount. Failure to do so will result in the subscriber getting disqualified for further assistance until eligibility has been re-established. 

If you have questions regarding the Lifeline program, you can email or call the Lifeline Support Center at 800-234-9473.

Lifeline FAQs

Did Lifeline start during the COVID-19 pandemic?

No. Lifeline has been around since 1985. It first started as a means to get affordable phone service to low-income families. Home internet service began to be included when the scope of the program was expanded in 2016. The coronavirus pandemic helped bring the program to greater light, but it was in existence well before that time.

Can anyone participate in Lifeline?

While Lifeline is available in all 50 states across the country, it is aimed toward helping low-income families and individuals. Therefore, not everyone will be able to sign up. In order to qualify for Lifeline, you must meet the eligibility requirements, which range from participation in specific government assistance programs to a household income less than or equal to 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

If I use Lifeline, am I ineligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program?

On the contrary, participation in Lifeline may help you skip a step when you aim to enroll in the Affordable Connectivity Program. Rather than having to go through the full ACP application process, your Lifeline registration will allow you to go straight to your internet service provider to sign up.

Killexams : What is Steelpan & why is Google Doodle celebrating it today?

Google is celebrating Steelpan on 26th July 2022 in the form of a Google Doodle. This doodle is illustrated by Trinidad and Tobago-based artist Nicholas Huggins. Read more to find out.

Celebrating Steelpan: Today is 26th July 2022 and Google is celebrating Steelpan with a doodle to commemorate the day in which the Steelpan was introduced to the world. This doodle is illustrated by Trinidad and Tobago-based artist Nicholas Huggins. What is Google Doodle and why is Google celebrating Steelpan today? Read more to find out.

What is a Google Doodle?

Google Doodle is a temporary but special alteration of the Google logo on the Google homepage to celebrate or commemorate the achievements, holidays, events, and historical figures around the world.

The duration of a Google Doodle is 24 hours.

What is a Steelpan?

Steelpan is a percussion instrument made of 55-gallon steel cargo drums introduced to the world in 1951 by the Trinidad All-Steel Pan Percussion Orchestra (TASPO).  

It has origins dating back to the 1700s and was featured regularly in Canboulay, the annual harvest festival of Trinidad. It is also the national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago.

The percussionists produce music from the Steelpan by striking the different-sized dents present on the surface of the drum with mallets.

Why is Google celebrating the Steelpan?

Google is celebrating the Steelpan with a doodle today, and the reason behind the celebration is that Google is commemorating the day on which the Steelpan was introduced to the world as a percussion instrument by the TASPO while performing at the Festival of Britain on 26th July 1951.

It is considered a major musical instrument of the 20th Century.

History of Steelpan

Steelpan roots can be traced back to the 1700s when enslaved Africans were brought to Trinidad by the colonialists. The slaves carried the African tradition of rhythmic drumming along with them.

When slavery was abolished between 1834-1838, the inhabitants of Trinidad and Tobago started celebrating their festivities with drums.

However, in 1877, the government banned drumming because they believed it could inspire rebellion by sending radical messages.

In protest of this ban, the musicians started to pound bamboo tubes on the ground to mimic the sound of drums that they played. They were known as Tamboo Bamboo Bands.

Things were normal until 1930 when another ban was announced as rival Tamboo Bamboo Bands clashed with each other during the carnivals.

During this ban period, the musicians started experimenting with different kinds of objects such as car parts, pots, tin cans. Overtime dents were created on the surface of these objects, which produced different notes depending upon their shape, position and size.

After the end of World War 2 in 1948, the musicians began experimenting on the 55-gallon oil drums discarded by the oil refineries. It laid the foundation of the modern steelpan instrument.

Pioneers of Steelpan

The pioneers of the steelpan instrument are Winston “Spree” Simon, Ellie Mannette, Anthony Williams and Bertie Marshall. The techniques and innovations developed by them are in use to date.

Important Facts Related to Steelpan

It became the national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago in 1992. It is played in major concert halls like Kennedy Center, Royal Albert Hall and Carnegie Hall.

Killexams : MBA in Business Analytics Online

MBA in Business Analytics Program Overview

Combine a well-rounded graduate program with an in-demand concentration when you earn the Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Business Analytics at Southern New Hampshire University.

"In today’s world, data is everywhere, including in management-style decisions," said Amelia Manni, MS, an adjunct faculty member and a subject-matter expert at SNHU. "This concentration allows those seeking their MBA to get a leg up and begin to understand how data works and best practices for implementing it into their decision-making."

This focused graduate degree program can prepare you for the application of tools and techniques of data analytics. And with these analytical skills, you can become a more valuable asset to your current – and future – employers.

"This program concentration offers learners a practical approach to business analytics," said Dr. Jessica Rogers, associate dean at SNHU. "Each course has been developed with a strong focus on the needs and demands of business today."

This program also has the potential to save you both time and money: By attending full time, you can complete the degree in about 12 months, and the 30-credit program costs less than $19K total.

Learn how to:

  • Analyze and interpret data to make decisions
  • Synthesize functional expertise, innovation, leadership and entrepreneurship to develop and foster adaptable strategies for an organization
  • Evaluate and implement various models and processes in the design and continuous improvement of organizations and their practices
  • Lead and collaborate with stakeholders to cultivate globally aware and culturally responsive teams and organizations
  • Drive the creation and implementation of plans that articulate organizational culture, align with ethical and legal standards, and promote sustainable business practices

Looking for a degree that's more focused? SNHU also offers an online master's in business analytics program as well as an online master's in data analytics program.

Career Outlook

These days, data analytics is necessary for business. All business.

Amelia Manni with the text Amelia Manni"In a world of degrees that focus solely on the technical or business side, organizations are finding themselves with a gap," said Amelia Manni, MS, an adjunct faculty member and a subject-matter expert at Southern New Hampshire University. "One side cannot talk to the other in an efficient way. That is where someone with this business analytics concentration comes in. They have all the knowledge and skills around great management and business acumen as well as how to incorporate data and information into their decision-making. That is a game-changer – and a good skill to have."

The future for management analysts looks excellent. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the field is projected to grow 14% through 2030 – faster than the average for all jobs.1 That means almost 100,000 openings are projected each year, on average, over the next decade.

Plus, May 2020 data shows that the median salary for management analysts is $87,660, which is more than double the median salary for all workers.1 The highest 10% of analysts earned a median salary of $156,840.1

As a management analyst, you could have the opportunity to work in a variety of settings. In 20201, they worked in:

  • Professional, scientific and technical services: 31%
  • Government: 17%
  • Self-employed workers: 16%
  • Finance and insurance: 13%
  • Management of companies and enterprises: 5%

Monique Jordan with the text Monique Jordan"An analyst can work across industries in positions such as business intelligence analyst, market analyst, operations research analyst, sports analyst, healthcare analyst and more," said Monique Jordan, senior associate dean of business at SNHU.

Many management analysts work as consultants. The BLS projects that the demand will continue to grow, as organizations work to become more efficient. In fact, the increase could be strong in smaller consulting companies that specialize in specific industries or types of business function.1

Courses & Curriculum

In 2021, Southern New Hampshire University introduced a completely revised curriculum for its 30-credit online MBA program. Just months later, it rolled out the business analytics concentration. That's a huge benefit for students, since it means you get to take part in one of the most innovative MBA programs on the market today.

"In each step of the curriculum building, we thought about what is needed in the workforce today and what gaps there are that this concentration could help fill," said Amelia Manni, MS, an adjunct faculty member and a subject-matter expert at Southern New Hampshire University. "We thought about the technical skills that students could face when they are on the job as well as how they can get that hands-on experience. ... This concentration really took what the industry is lacking – data-driven business professionals – and created a program to educate that next generation of data thinkers."

Manni was just one of a number of academics who helped create an MBA in Business Analytics program at SNHU.

Dr. Jessica Rogers with the text Dr. Jessica Rogers"Our instructional designers and subject-matter experts worked together to create a top-notch learning experience that guides learners toward creating real-world artifacts and addressing real business problems," said Dr. Jessica Rogers, an associate dean at SNHU.

Building off the 7-course core that's required of all online MBA students – no matter the concentration – business analytics students will take 3 more courses that round out the curriculum.

These include:

  • Business Analytics
  • Descriptive Analytics

Those without an undergraduate degree in business or a related field may be asked to complete up to 2 foundation courses to get started. These foundations cover essential business skill sets and can be used to satisfy elective requirements for the general-track MBA. With foundations, the maximum length of your online MBA would be 36 credits.

Tribune Business Editor

A Supreme Court judge has slammed the Bahamas Medical Council’s “dismissive and patronising” approach to rejecting an expatriate doctor’s bid to be licensed as a radiology specialist - a decision that forced her family to split-up.

Justice Loren Klein, in a July 22, 2022, verdict branded the regulatory body’s attitude towards Dr Gauri Shirodkar as “perplexing” as he overturned its rejection and ordered that her registration application be reconsidered.

A qualified medical doctor and radiologist, who had previously been licensed by the Council and employed by the Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) for almost a decade between December 2010 and December 2019 as a “radiology registrar”, Dr Shirodkar’s troubles began when she applied to be licensed as a specialist in June 2020 ahead of going into private practice in The Bahamas.

“Her hopes were dashed in three terse lines in a December 30, 2020, letter from the Council,” Justice Klein recorded. The letter stated: “The Bahamas Medical Council has reviewed your application for specialist registration in radiology. We regret to inform that your application was denied. The Council was unable to verify your specialist qualification in radiology.”

The judge added: “Somewhat taken aback by this decision, she again wrote to the Council to try to persuade them that she met the statutory qualifications to be registered as a radiology specialist and to reconsider their position. The Council reconsidered but did not relent. In an equally short and cryptic letter dated January 13, 2021, it reiterated that it was “...unable to verify your specialist qualifications in radiology”.

Radiology involves the conduct and analysis of x-rays, a technique frequently used to treat and diagnose illness. Dr Shirodkar sought to overturn the Council’s decision via Judicial Review, challenging the rationale and soundness of its decision-making and the process involved, and while efforts to resolve the dispute out-of-court “looked very promising at one point” they “eventually unravelled”.

In the meantime, The Bahamas’ loss proved the UK’s gain. “Unemployed in the meantime, Dr Shirodkar made the difficult decision to leave her husband (who is also a medical doctor and radiologist working in The Bahamas) and return half a world away to the UK with her young daughter to seek employment,” Justice Klein noted. “Ironically, she found employment with the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK as a consultant radiologist.”

The Medical Council, which is a statutory body empowered via the Medical Act, is charged with protecting the Bahamian public’s health, safety and well-being by licensing and registering all medical practitioners to ensure they are all properly trained and qualified. The main person giving evidence on its behalf in Dr Shirodkar’s case was Dr Merceline Dahl-Regis, the Government’s former chief medical officer and head of the Minnis administration’s COVID-19 response.

Justice Klein said the Council’s initial response to the doctor’s application on October 5, 2020, was that she needed to supply evidence of her “specialist registration” with the UK’s General Medical Council (GMC). The Bahamian Council’s “review committee” assessed her application on November 23, 2020, recommending that it not be granted, and this was communicated to Dr Shirodkar on December 30, 2020.

She replied on January 5, 2021, setting out her qualifications and also explaining how she had registered with the GMC as a general practitioner before being offered a consultant radiologist post at Northampton Hospital in the UK. However, the Council again denied the application in a response that was “terse and contained only the very general explanation that the Council was unable to verify the applicant’s specialist qualification”.

Dr Dahl-Regis, in an affidavit, alleged that Dr Shirodkar did not possess the required three years’ training in radiology prior to entering The Bahamas while adding that she did not submit an approved work permit from the Department of Immigration with her application. This, though, was bitterly contested by the doctor.

And Justice Klein found that the Medical Council’s rejection was unlawful because it did not follow the statutory requirements set out by the Medical Act. This provides that only the Council’s Assessment Committee can review a doctor’s licensing application - not the “Review Committee” referred to by Dr Dahl-Regis, as it has no legal authority to perform this function.

The judge also found that the process did not supply Dr Shirodkar the right to make her case by submitting representations and having the Council consider them as part of the decision-making process. “I am also satisfied that in the circumstances of this case, the Council failed to supply reasons, or failed to supply adequate reasons, to the applicant,” Justice Klein found.

“In this regard, it has to be borne firmly in mind that the formal reason (and perhaps the only reason) given to the applicant for refusing registration was simply that the Council was unable to verify her specialist qualifications. There is considerable indeterminacy of meaning in that statement.

“It is not known, for example, whether this was intended to mean that the Council could not determine whether the qualifications or certificates presented by the applicant were authentic, or that they did not know whether they correlated to the qualifications set out under the Schedules” in the Medical Act relating to different specialist practices and their licensing requirements.

Describing the Immigration-related work permit concerns as “a red herring”, as it was not a matter for the Council, Justice Klein found: “In my judgment, the farrago of affidavit evidence presented by the respondent [the Council] after the institution of Judicial Review proceedings, far from clarifying the decision-making process and the basis on which it was taken, only further exemplified the flaws in the process, as well as the errors in reasoning.

“The conclusion of the Council that the applicant needed to be on the specialist register of the UK GMC to be considered eligible to be registered as a specialist in The Bahamas involved a clear error of reasoning, and there is nothing in the Act that would justify such a conclusion.

“In coming to that conclusion, the Council seemed to conflate the role of the professional body, the GMC, charged with registering medical certified for the purposes of regulating their practice in the UK, with the academic or clinical qualifications which the [Medical Act] schedule sets out as being acceptable for specialist registration under the Act.”

Pointing to Dr Shirodkar’s other qualifications, and work while at PMH, Justice Klein added: “In the circumstances of this case, I would hold that the Council’s logic and process of reasoning in concluding that the applicant was not qualified to be registered as a specialist due to a cited lack of the three years’ post-graduate training was an irrational and unreasonable decision in the circumstances of this case.....

“While I could not find anything to attribute bad faith or malice to the Council, the dismissive and patronising tone adopted by the Council at times in its affidavits to explain its interaction with the applicant is perplexing. The applicant, as appears from all of the reference letters written on her behalf, is a competent physician, well respected by her colleagues, and it seems most unfortunate and regrettable that she should not be accorded what, to my mind, is the basic professional courtesy one would expect the Council to routinely extend to any registered medical practitioner.”
