APNU/AFC’s honouring of convicted anti-US terrorist betrays democracy

first_img…motion in National Assembly not reflective of Guyanese beliefs ‒ PPPThe use of the National Assembly, Guyana’s highest decision-making body, to honour the People’s National Congress (PNC) former Member of Parliament, who was convicted in the United States of plotting to blow up the John F Kennedy International Airport, is another act of betrayal of democracy and the rule of law.This is according to the Opposition People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) which in a stinging statement on Saturday evening said the move by Government to pass such a motion is clearly not reflective of the will of the people of Guyana.“Guyanese are known as peaceful and law-abiding citizens, at home and abroad,” the PPP said.Convicted terrorist Abdul KadirThe Party in condemning the motion that was passed in the National Assembly on April 26, stating that the People’s National Congress (PNC) has a” history of honouring and exonerating violent criminals. Linden “Blackie” London whose reign of terror ended when he was killed in a shootout with law enforcement services of Guyana, was honoured by PNC leaders, who infamously draped Blackie’s coffin with Guyana’s national flag, the Golden Arrowhead. In addition, the five prison escapees who wreaked havoc and were responsible for murder, mayhem and an unprecedented crime wave, were dubbed ‘freedom fighters’ by many leaders of the PNC.”Junior Agriculture Minister Valarie PattersonThe Party added that the Lindo Creek Commission of Inquiry, during which the father of a sitting Minister was its lone Commissioner and the brother of another Minister its legal counsel, was aimed at “exonerating” Rondell “Fineman” Rawlins. All of these actions show a pattern of association and glorification of homegrown terrorists.Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr Barton Scotland“The use of a Parliamentary Resolution is now an indelible stain on our people and national character that will not easily be forgiven or forgotten by those who have suffered at the hands of international terrorism,” the Party added.In 2010, former Guyanese parliamentarian Abdul Kadir was convicted and sentenced to life for plotting to blow up the JFK airport in the United States (US). Today, the coalition Government’s decision to pay tribute to him in the National Assembly is attracting much criticism.On Friday, the convicted terrorist was lauded by the Guyana’s coalition Government – A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change – as a “great man, a stalwart; a bold and courageous man.”President David GrangerAt Friday’s sitting of the National Assembly, where the Opposition PPP was not present, controversial former Housing Minister, now Minister of Rural Agriculture, Valerie Patterson-Yearwood tabled a motion – Sympathy on the Death of Abdul Kadir, former Member of Parliament.last_img read more

Debate on student goals

first_img“If a school is meeting 17 out of 20 \ criteria, no way should that be considered underperforming,” Elbling said. “Let’s be real and decide what’s truly attainable, without pie-in-the-sky standards.” Cirasole, 59, a school consultant, agreed, saying NCLB has set “awfully high standards for California, and they’re not real- istic. We’re chasing our tails on these things.” But it has helped with teacher quality, Cirasole added, saying 99 percent of district teachers have met the federal criteria of a highly qualified teacher. Gallardo, 45, a school administrator, says NCLB has also led to some good things, like the alignment of curriculum to state educational standards and more collaboration among teachers about what material should be taught at specific grade levels. “Schools should continue to collaborate and provide the staff development that is necessary for teachers to provide \ level of learning,” he said. On the other hand, it’s good to set high goals, said Aparicio, 28, a middle school teacher. “In that sense, NCLB has been good,” Aparicio said. “For me, as a teacher, it’s been hard the last few years. “But if we’re aiming for that mark, we will get there,” he said. “I just don’t know if we’ll get there in the next six years – in 10 years, yes, I believe so.” All four board contenders also said they were in favor of after-school programs, articulation with high schools their students feed into, and more emphasis on nutrition, P.E. activities and parent/student education about how to combat childhood obesity. The forum was co-sponsored by the Whittier-Pico Rivera Council of PTAs and the Whittier chapter of the American Association of University Women.

You’re all set! “The candidates running for school districts will help produce the adults of the next generation,” she said. “And our livelihood will depend on those students.” The board candidates are hoping to snag the current seats of Robert Ehlers and Alison Pigott, both of whom decided not to run for another term. At the forum, all four agreed the federal NCLB law, which calls for all students to be proficient in English-language arts and math by 2013-14, was created with good intent. But its goals aren’t realistic, said Elbling, 43, a middle school teacher. WHITTIER – Covering topics like the much-maligned No Child Left Behind Act and childhood obesity rates, four candidates offered up their views at a forum this week in their bid to win a board seat at the East Whittier City School District. Carlos Aparicio, Michael Cirasole, Dimitri Elbling and Angel Gallardo were on hand Wednesday night at City Hall for the forum organized by the Whittier League of Women Voters. The forum, one of several scheduled in the next two weeks to help familiarize voters with candidates in the Nov. 6 elections, allowed school-board hopefuls to introduce their platforms and be questioned on the issues by the small audience. “School boards are our most local level of government, the people who are most \ to you to communicate with, to express your ideas,” said Margo Reeg, a LWV member who served as the forum’s moderator. last_img read more

Africa set for ‘internet revolution’

first_img16 September 2010Businesses across Africa are expecting a revolution in internet access, costs and technology as a result of the rush of new undersea cables connecting the continent, a new report finds, with wider access also driving increased use of social networking as a business tool.More than 90% of business decision-makers across Africa are expecting prices to drop and competition to increase dramatically, according to the Telecoms Trends in Africa 2010 report, released on Thursday by South African technology research firm World Wide Worx and Database 360.The survey, conducted among 1 100 internet-using small, medium and large businesses across 20 African countries, also revealed that most African countries remain heavily reliant on slow or expensive forms of connectivity, such as dial-up and satellite. However, they are beginning the move to broadband.“Our interviewers encountered tremendous enthusiasm for the internet in all countries we surveyed,” Database 360 MD Louise Robinson said in a statement. “There is little doubt that, in this new connectivity era, the very nature of most businesses is changing.”ADSL: standard form of business internetDatabase 360 operates a call centre in Cape Town, from which the respondents were interviewed telephonically. The study was compiled and the data analysed by World Wide Worx.“ADSL is fast becoming the standard form of business internet access across Africa – more than 40% of businesses in these 20 countries are using it,” said World Wide Worx MD Arthur Goldstuck. “However, we can see the limitations of existing infrastructure from the fact that satellite connectivity remains a key part of the mix.”More than one in five respondents said they were using satellite connectivity, with a similar number planning to add it to their options.“Satellite is the most expensive means you can possibly use to access the internet. The continued appetite for it tells us that, even though there is an expectation for better and cheaper connectivity, the reality on the ground remains one of limited infrastructure.“Moreover, once businesses go online, the internet becomes increasingly more vital to their survival, and having a backup form of access becomes increasingly more important,” said Goldstuck.Broadband growth, social networkingCountries like Mauritius, Ivory Coast and Namibia are already showing strong growth in ADSL usage by business, while Angolan businesses indicate the highest anticipated growth for this form of broadband.“It’s amazing to see how the level of internet usage shoots up wherever the new undersea cables have landed and fibre optic networks have linked the cables to urban centres,” said Robinson. “The East Africa countries, especially, are taking to social networking as a business tool to a greater extent than almost anywhere else in Africa.”The survey highlights Kenya and Uganda as the biggest African users of social networking for business. However, even landlocked countries that have recently seen major upgrades to their fibre-optic networks, such as Botswana and Zambia, are also moving rapidly in this direction.The study further explored the use of general internet applications, e-mail on mobile phones, and the emergence of cloud computing in Africa.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
