Liberian President’s Son Loses Poll

first_imgThe youngest and highly controversial son of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Robert Sirleaf, who entered the 2014 Senatorial race for the coveted Montserrado seat, has been defeated by what appears to be a wide margin based on provisional results released via radio broadcasts so far.Robert was defeated in the poll by his archrival, soccer legend George Weah. Though the official pronouncement has not been declared by the National Elections Commission (NEC), yet provisional results counted, processed and posted at the Commission’s offices in the capital, Monrovia, indicate that Weah has accumulated over 50 percent of the votes cast.Another contender in the race, Benjamin Sanvee, openly congratulated Weah through a comment posted on his Facebook page.  According to Sanvee, an official congratulatory statement will be released shortly.There has not been any statement from Sirleaf.The President’s Unity Party recently declared Mr. Sirleaf “an enemy of the state”, urging voters not to elect him.Liberians participated in a senatorial election on Saturday, in the face of the country’s continued struggle to eradicate the deadly Ebola virus.The poll was carried out with enforcement of preventive measures as issued by the health authority. People were asked to wash their hands before entering polling centers, while voters were restricted to a three feet distance from each other within the queues.For fear of the risks that electoral activities posed to the fight against Ebola, voter turnout was very low in most parts of the country, including Monrovia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

GTT blames Govt for slow Internet service

first_imgGTT Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Justin Nedd has blamed the Government for its slow Internet services as it was criticised by youths on the eve of World Youth Day.GTT CEO Justin NeddNedd told the youth gathering at the Promenade Gardens at Middle and Waterloo Streets, North Cummingsburg, Georgetown on Saturday during a Come Alive Network Inc (CANI) conference that the Government has not given the ‘spectrum’ the company needed, thus resulting in the slow Internet service.“We only launched 3G in 2016, because that’s when we were actually granted the spectrum from the Government. We were ready to launch 4G; we needed to be granted the spectrum from the Government and many times, people don’t understand that, they say well, it’s the providers but no. The Government has to actually say this spectrum is allocated to you, GTT…” he said.The CEO, nevertheless, boasted that the company has been innovating over the years and advancing its services to locals. “Over the last year or two years, we have done in my mind a fantastic job at rolling out faster Internet (and) better quality services…for the first time in Guyana we have got 50 megabits per second and that is something we intend to do in more and more (parts) of the country,” he pointed out.Nedd disclosed that come 2019, the company would be deploying faster broadband services.Back in May 2016, the local company introduced 4G Internet service which was intended to replace the previous 2G coverage.Also speaking at the launch, GTT Chief Commercial Officer Gert Post related that the company has been anticipating the implementation of the upgraded service, since it would improve Guyana’s communications with the rest of the world, even as telecommunications technology was advancing throughout the length and breadth of the globe.He said the company was elated to improve Internet service for its customers which is in keeping with its mandate to “do more”.Meanwhile, the CEO added that the company has invested over US$5 million to upgrade to 4G and an additional $30 million to $40 million to lay its fibre-optic cable.last_img read more

BUDGET 2016: BUILDERS SAY MORE NEEDS TO BE DONE

first_imgThe Construction Industry Federation are broadly supportive of Budget 2016 announced today, which “sets Ireland on a positive path for economic growth and recovery”.However, further actions are needed in order to kick start growth in the construction sector, which currently employs more than 125,000 people, CIF said.It is essential now that we see follow through on the plans set out in the public capital programme in order to ensure critical infrastructural projects take place across the country. CIF Director General Tom Parlon stated “there are a number of positive initiatives announced by the Government, including the extension to the Home Renovation Grant, the increased provision for social housing, and measures to assist self-employed.  However, while we welcome the provisions that NAMA can provide 20,000 houses between now and 2020, this will only deliver to 4,000 units per annum, which equates to only 25% of broadly acknowledged annual national demand.“There are no proposals to address the issue of costs of providing new homes, the availability of affordable development finance, or the availability of mortgages.  We are concerned that this may be a lost opportunity to support the construction of much needed additional homes to meet sustainable demand.“The Budget appears light on detail on the exact measures mentioned by the Minister in relation to the housing market / NAMA. The CIF are going to need to see much more detail to know whether this will have any impact on the construction sector or on the housing market.”  BUDGET 2016: BUILDERS SAY MORE NEEDS TO BE DONE was last modified: October 13th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Young Donegal actress beats thousands to land lead role in Netflix series

first_imgA young Donegal actress has landed a major part in a major new series which will be shown on Netflix.Amybeth McNulty, 14, landed the leading role in Anne, a new, large production series for Netflix and CBC, the Canadian national broadcaster.Amybeth has been cast as the gifted and imaginative Anne Shirley in the new series Anne. Based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic novel, Anne of Green Gables, the show began production in Canada in September.The series centres on a young orphaned girl in the late 1890s.Executive producer Miranda de Pencier said 1,889 girls were auditioned from around the globe for the role.“We are thrilled to have found the incredibly versatile and delightful Amybeth McNulty to play this world-renowned heroine alongside the rest of our brilliant cast,” she said. Amybeth has previously appeared in the RTE drama series Clean Break.The actress read the Anne Green of Gables books when she was nine and says she shares many personality traits with the titular heroine.“She has so much love for the world, which I think I share with her”, McNulty told CBC News. “And her curiosity about everything, how she can be so fierce and so bold but so gentle and so loving.”The show’s executive producer, Moira Walley-Beckett, said: “Amybeth is a wonderful and sensitive actress who embodies all of Anne’s qualities. She’s soulful and inquisitive, mercurial and passionate.“Her ability to convey pain and joy is breathtaking.

How the Internet of Things is Changing the Way We Work

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Internet of Things#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Several years ago, before the Web had become as ever-present as it is now, Wal-Mart was the shining example of a future where inanimate objects communicated, aka the Internet of Things. The company had a plan to implement RFID tags to better optimize its supply chain. The problem? The RFID technology could not be programmed to exchange data. In the past few years, we’ve seen the emergence of the application programming interface, or API. APIs have become very popular. It’s evident when you look at the directory from Programmable Web, which has 3,000 APIs. Presented by Xerox. With Xerox, you’ll be ready for real business. Find out how. APIs are used all the time to connect Web apps, cloud-based services, devices and increasingly, inanimate objects. APIs are making our world programmable. We can program a bridge, the door to a house or the cart that trucks your luggage to the plane.And with mobile devices, we can track that data no matter where we are and use real-time analytics and a geospatial context to find intelligence in the collective data.The Internet of Things is only practical when you have a critical mass of devices and a cloud infrastructure. We have that now. But we also need the geospatial context to know where everything is located, all the time.All of this has implications on the way we work. For example, a municipality cannot afford to replace all of its aging roads and bridges at one time. But it can place sensors to transmit data that can then be analyzed in real-time. The analysis tells the people managing the system how the bridge is faring. This can be replicated across the entire transportation network. By doing that, the systems manager can get a granular view that was not possible before. Road crews with sensors on trucks can be monitored, too. Teams can be distributed across the network, based upon the data analytics that indicate weak points and potential weak points in the system.This kind of approach means automation on a scale that we have not seen before. We need this automation as this kind of data becomes a deeply woven mesh into all aspects of society.Photo by gerard79 alex williamslast_img read more
