Dear Editor,A lot of talk is being heard about Guyana Elections Commission’s (GECOM) preparedness for the holding of National and Regional Elections. We are also hearing talk that a new house-to-house registration is needed. Now we are hearing talk about them needing 180 days to prepare.All of these claims are really excuses with the view of frustrating the will of the Guyanese people.I say this because in 2015 the Commission had 90 days to prepare and they did to hold elections in May of that year.All over the world, including in our sister Caricom states, Election Commissions are ready to conduct free and fair polls with as little as a month’s notice.Millions of Guyanese taxpayers’ dollars are spent to put GECOM on such a footing.Recall that GECOM was made into a permanent Commission in the year 2000. Before then it was not. It was set up only to conduct elections and then dissolved.The reason for doing so was to ensure that GECOM would always be ready to conduct elections. The situation which we have now was always anticipated as a possibility. Therefore, measures were put in place to ensure that GECOM would be ready at all times.Continuous registration began in 2005. By legislation, the law mandated that the list of 2001 be used as the base for continuous registration.Let me state that that piece of legislation was reached by agreement with all the political parties in the National Assembly.When the operation began, GECOM had an arrangement with the General Registration Office to get monthly reports of all the persons who died during that month. That list was shared with the political parties. The purpose of that was to ensure that the names of those who died were constantly removed from the lists. That practice was ongoing at least up to 2015. I have every reason to believe that it is continuing.I am aware that GECOM had even moved to get the lists from Police Stations to be given to the Registration Offices in each region. This was to accelerate the process of removing names of the dead.Therefore, there can be no argument that GECOM is not ready. It was provided with all the resources to fulfil its mandate.Mr Ramjattan has displayed his lack of knowledge about elections issues, or he is faking to play for more time. He had said that he wanted new house-to-house registration, to put onto the list, persons who have come of age.The laws that established GECOM have made provisions for putting people on the list.I have described one such process in the form of continuous registration.The other way is during the Claims and Objections period which every election must have. During this time all those who had recently come of age can put their names on the list and those, who for one reason or the other were not registered can also be registered. In the same way names of the dead that were missed can be removed. That is why the period is named ‘Claims and Objections’.It is therefore difficult to understand why GECOM is not ready. They have been given a constitutional mandate and they must fulfil it.All the talk about lack of readiness is either dishonest, pushed by persons who want a rigged election or because of the lack of knowledge or both.If GECOM officials are saying they are not ready, then it means that they are compromising themselves to satisfy the APNU/AFC.Sincerely,Donald RamotarFormer President
Arizona State lost its past four games by a combined 14 points, and missed an open shot and a chance to beat Washington State in the closing seconds. And when the Sun Devils were in Pauley Pavilion last month, they held an early lead, and trailed by a handful of points before UCLA pulled away for a 10-point win. Ok, so that is what the fifth-ranked Bruins are selling this week as reason not to take laughable Arizona State lightly tonight at Wells Fargo Arena. “It doesn’t look good over the long haul, but each individual game is different,” Aarron Afflalo said. “That team has the potential to beat you. If you look at each individual game, that potential to win was always there. But they’re so young, and they don’t have the experience of winning all the time. That can catch up with you.” And Afflalo came up with another rationale for not peeking ahead to Saturday’s game at Arizona. “It would make absolutely no sense for us to go in there (to Arizona State) and think we have a victory,” Afflalo said. “We’re already coming off a loss. We haven’t been that great on the road ourselves, only 50 percent. For a team with our capability and our talent, we should be much better. So we need this one bad.” UCLA is 14-0 at home and 4-0 on neutral courts, but the road is another issue. The Bruins traveled three time zones and 3,000 miles to lose at West Virginia on Saturday. They also split road trips to Oregon State and Oregon, and California and Stanford, winning easily against a much inferior team in first game before falling on the backend of the trip. Today: at Arizona State, 5:30 p.m., KSPN/710, PRIME Chasing history Arizona State is heading toward the first winless season in Pac 10 history. In fact, if the Sun Devils fail to get out of the weekend with a win, they will be the first Pac 10 team to lose its first 15 league games of a season. Arizona (1982-83) and Washington State (1999-00, 2002-03) are the only programs to begin 0-14, and all three of those teams won their 15th game, according to the Pac 10. Two teams in the Pac 8 went 0-14. They were Oregon (1971-72) and USC (1975-76). If the Sun Devils go 0-18 – they host UCLA and USC this week and Arizona next week before closing the season at Stanford and Cal – they will do it in style. Arizona State is last in the Pac 10 in scoring offense (59.2 ppg) and field goal percentage (41.1), and ninth in 3-point percentage (31.3). Planting a seed Count Bruins coach Ben Howland among those who do not believe UCLA hurt its chances of earning the No. 1 seed in the West in the NCAA Tournament with its West Virginia loss, especially since point guard Darren Collison (shoulder) did not play. “It’s all based on what we do from here on out, depending on how we go,” Howland said. “It’s a loss. We’re still No. 1 in the RPI. So, although it’s a loss, it’s a loss against a good team on the road. But that remains to be seen. “It’s totally depending on what we do with the rest of our games here in the regular season.” A top seed in the West means playing the first two rounds in Sacramento. The Regional semifinals and final are in San Jose. When the Bruins reached the Final Four last season, they played in front of partisan crowds in San Diego and Oakland. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Later in the second quarter, he took an option pitch, busted a few tackles, and ran 60 yards for his fourth touchdown to give Baldwin Park a 28-7 lead. Harris’ fifth touchdown came in the third quarter and stopped Sierra Vista’s momentum. The Dons trailed 35-14 early in the third quarter but scored two quick touchdowns to trail 35-28. Harris then took a handoff at the Baldwin Park 49-yard line, went up the middle, then cut right and raced down the sideline for a 51-yard touchdown. Baldwin Park grabbed a 42-28 lead then scored two more touchdowns right away to put the game out of the reach. “(Harris) has really worked hard all summer,’ Heggins said. “It’s just the proof that comes out when you prepare your body all summer. You prepare the right way, you lift weights, you get conditioned and you do all the things coaches ask you to do. And he came out and it showed he’s really getting into shape.’ Harris wasn’t the only player with big numbers. Sierra Vista quarterback Miguel Parra completed 34 of 51 passes for 419 yards. He also tossed two touchdowns and ran one in from a yard out. Three different Dons had 100 receiving yards. Armando Zelaya caught 15 passes for 140 yards. David Lazaro caught six passes for 122 yards and Elias Flores caught five passes for 101 yards. BALDWIN PARK — Rivalry games usually bring out the best in the best players. Some performances are never forgotten, and Baldwin Park High School tailback Aaron Harris made sure football fans will remember about what he did against crosstown rival Sierra Vista High for a long time. The junior rushed for 332 yards and five touchdowns as the Braves rolled to a 63-34 victory over the Dons on Friday night. “He’s a special kind of athlete,’ Baldwin Park coach James Heggins said of Harris. “When he comes to play and does some things for us it’s a lot of fun.’ Harris made an impression early and often. He took his first carry and scampered 59 yards for a touchdown early in the first quarter. He scored his second touchdown on the Braves next possession when he ran for a 12-yard score to put Baldwin Park up 14-0. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

16 August 2010 SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material “Therefore, I am elated to witness that your growing corporate footprint is consistent with your thrust to reduce your carbon footprint. In fact, it is comforting to see that you are going the extra mile to make our sector even greener and safer for future generations. Additionally, the project would also ensure that the company’s expansion plans were not hampered due to a lack of power supply needed. “Today, we are about to witness what was just a plan in October 2008, becoming a reality, in enabling us to manage potential energy shortages and reduce power consumption, increase savings, and initiate a sustainability model to reduce our carbon footprint. When the plant is fully operational and producing two megawatt of power, MTN expects a return on its investment of R22-million within a five-year period. All the plant’s processes have been designed to result in savings in the water and electricity costs. And, once it is running at 100% capacity, the plant’s load excess will power and cool the campus. As a spin-off, the plant will produce an estimated 800kW of cooling for free, resulting in further savings in the building’s air conditioning processes. In an effort to increase savings through the development of a self-sustaining power supply initiative, telecoms company MTN has installed a two megawatt, methane-driven tri-generation plant – the first of its kind in Africa – at its offices in Fairlands, Johannesburg. “This plant will also assist us in reducing the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the electricity consumption here at our headquarters, resulting in a reduction of coal-based electricity generation and its associated environmental consequences,” said Pienaar. “Through our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint and increase our focus on sustainability and our ‘Greening 14th Avenue’ initiative, MTN Group is showing its commitment to lead by example,” said MTN Group CEO Phuthuma Nhleko. “The tri-generation plant is the result of a unique solution to meet our strategic objectives – it will generate electricity and, through a second re-absorption chiller cycle using the waste heat, will generate water for the air-conditioning systems in our buildings,” Pienaar said in a statement. “And, what better way to do this than by creating our own source of sustainable energy.” Reduce consumption, increase saving “This tri-generator plant electricity plant by MTN is evidence that you are an environmentally-friendly and good corporate citizen,” Pule said. Methane gas is a clean-burning, sustainable gas that is reliable and offers a consistent supply. The gas will be sourced from the Mozambique, and is transported to MTN’s Fairland offices via Sasol in Secunda and Johannesburg’s Egoli Gas. Also speaking at the function at MTN, Deputy Communications Minister Dina Pule commented: “Nothing less than a shift from a high to a low carbon global economy is required and in many cases, ICTs appear to offer the best way to accelerate this. Using the tri-generation plant, methane gas is burned in the machines and the energy created by the gas-fired engines generates heat and electricity. The waste heat from the engines will be used in the absorption chiller to cool the water. This chilled water is then supplied to the air-handling units that supply the cooled air for the electronic equipment housed in the new building – the test switch centre on the ground floor and the data centre on the first floor. The water from the six huge cooling towers is used to cool down the heat from the engines. As it is not used in the absorption cycle, this “grey water” is then recycled through the Phase 1 and Phase 2 buildings on the MTN campus to flush the toilets. Cooling by-product “The idea of using methane gas to generate energy got us all thinking and the tri-generation power plant is the end result.” Speaking at the launch of the plant earlier this month, MTN South Africa MD Karel Pienaar said that given the current climate, there was greater pressure on companies to do more with less in a responsible and sustainable way, and also reduce their carbon footprint. Shift to low-carbon economy
Serial entrepreneur Jason Calacanis has just announced Mahalo 4.0, the latest pivot for his company that has now moved from being a “human-powered search engine” to a Q&A site. The new Mahalo, unveiled at the Digital Life Conference today, will be focused on creating how-to video content.The goal, according to Calacanis, is to create thousands of original, high-quality videos each week. These will be supplemented with additional text as well as real-time Q&A offerings. As Dan Frommer from Business Insider describes it “Think of it as Howcast (how-to-video) + Quora (Q&A) + About.com (a more structured Wikipedia).”Learning to PivotIn his presentation at DLD today, Calacanis narrated the story of Mahalo’s multiple pivots. Founded in 2007, Mahalo did a good job with the human-powered search, argues Calacanis, but just couldn’t keep up with the adjustments that Bing and Google were making to improve their own search results. And so Mahalo continued to iterate, improving in the areas in that Calacanis said its users were already drawn to. At first, that was the “answers” component. And now it’s this “how-to” video aspect.All About the LearningBut just as “search” and “answers” are both quite crowded fields, Mahalo is entering into a space – video-based learning – where it will have several competitors. There are a number of popular and well-trafficked how-to sites, including Howcast and eHow. As Mahalo is providing more than just video – maintaining the real-time answers component, for example – it will be interesting to watch how this pivot may impact some new companies who are trying to build video-focused casual and lifelong learning sites – companies like Udemy, for example. How will user-generated how-to and educational videos fare against Mahalo’s slick production value?So will this pivot work for Mahalo? Calacanis insists the company is in a strong financial position. And he says that traffic is good, too; the company currently has about 12 million monthly uniques, and this new venture continues the company’s partnership with YouTube, which generates quite a bit of ad revenue.So studio-made and expert-filled videos may be what gives Mahalo an edge on its competitors. Or – despite the move away from the “search engine” as the focus of Mahalo – this could all just come down to one big SEO battle. It’s clear with today’s announcement that Mahalo is putting a lot of resources into developing a rich library of content. Will this drive traffic? And will learners be drawn to this site?

The deputy chief proctor of the South Campus of the Banaras Hindu University was allegedly made to resign and faces serious criminal charges after she removed an RSS flag from the varsity playground.The varsity on Thursday said it would request the RSS, whose local office-bearer filed a police complaint, to withdraw the FIR, and would also approach the district administration to settle the matter.“We will deal with it because our employee is at stake. We will protect her 100%,” Ramadevi Nimmanapalli, professor in-charge of the BHU South Campus, told The Hindu. She, however, noted that it was an internal matter of the varsity.The controversy took place on Tuesday morning when Kiran Damle, the deputy chief proctor of the Rajiv Gandhi South Campus, located in Mirzapur, uprooted the RSS flag from the grounds while a ‘shakha’ was on.Following protests by some students and local RSS leaders, who claimed she insulted the flag, Ms. Damle resigned from her post, which was accepted.However, the matter did not end there. On a complaint from the Mirzapur district in-charge of the RSS, Chandra Mohan, the FIR was registered against Ms. Damle at the Kotwali Dehat police station.She was charged under four clauses of the Indian Penal Code, including promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc and deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs.DenialMs. Damle said she resigned as the “students wanted” her to do so. She claimed she was not aware that the saffron flag she uprooted was linked to the RSS. “If I knew, why would I do that [remove the flag],” she said.Early on Tuesday, she came across the flag in one corner of the playground, following which she inquired about it from the students, who were engaged in their drill and exercise. However, despite asking them and waving at them, no claimant came forward. She then removed it from the site and put it in her office “just to be on the safe side” as a precautionary measure given the sensitive climate over the Ayodhya verdict, she said.Ms. Damle claimed that she had directed her attendant to hand over the flag if anyone came and asked for it.Superintendent of Police Mirzapur Dharm Veer Singh said that during investigation, Ms. Damle admitted that she committed the act due to a “misconception.”Mr. Singh said the “sanghathan” (RSS) has been holding “shakhas” programme on the grounds every morning since the last seven years. The matter was being probed.Ms. Nimmanapalli said Ms. Damle was willing to issue a written apology to the RSS as she “did not do it intentionally.” “She did not know what importance the flag held for these persons. But she accepts that she made a mistake”.Ms. Nimmanapalli clarified that the varsity did not lodge a complaint against Ms. Damle but it was done externally. “It is not in my hand,” she said.Congress leader’s memorandumThe matter has taken a political turn with Congress’s UP vice-president and former MLA Lalitesh Pati Tripathi on Wednesday submitting a memorandum to the varsity condemning the criminal action taken against Ms. Damle.Taking to Twitter, Mr. Tripathi said Ms. Damle had expressed objection to the RSS’s attempts at “saffronising” the campus by holding “shakhas” on it.Ms. Nimmanapalli, however, said she had no objection to students participating in “shakhas” as long as peace on campus was not disturbed. The “shakhas” were making the students “disciplined,” no matter what their beliefs may be, she claimed.Chandra Mohan, zila karyavah, Mirzapur RSS, refused to believe Ms. Damle’s claim that she did not know the flag belonged to the RSS. “Even so, if a person comes across a saffron flag, he or she will bow before it, if they belong to the Hindu society, won’t they?”, he said. “Shakhas” were being held at the grounds for the past seven years and “not just the students, even professors participate in them and promote our work,” he said. Asked if the RSS would withdraw the police complaint, Mr. Mohan said he would follow instructions from his higher-ups. “When the matter comes up, we shall see it. It is not my personal matter. It is about our organisation. She has insulted the ‘bhagwa dwaj’ [saffron flag] of our organisation,” he added.
However, both still have few weaknesses and work on them However, both still have few weaknesses and work on them to improve their game, Sania said. She said both Hingis and herself spend too much time together and it is very difficult not to get along well. “We spend so much time together. We have shared so many emotions together. Its inevitable and very difficult to not get along well. “Today she is probably one of the closest persons to me; not just geographically where she is all the time, but also the way she understands me, she knows how I react to situations and vice-versa as well. So, I m glad that I got to know her like that,” she said. Sania said even if they fail to keep the winning streak alive, it will not affect their quest to win matches. “Hopefully, we can keep the streak alive but if it doesnt, then it has already been an unbelievable streak for us so its not going to change anything, but the goal is to try and win every time we step on the court,” she stated. Sania also said the streak was never on her and Hingis mind. “When we started winning and it was not something that we were consciously chasing for, we were just trying to win every tournament that we played and thats the goal still,” she said. “We are aware that the next number is 44, and we are aware that we can achieve that in Doha, but having said that its a tough tournament and there are no guarantees in sport. We will try our best and not put any pressure on ourselves because we have enough of that already,” she said. PTI BDN AH AHadvertisement
