first_imgUnhappy over delay in maintenance work on National Highway-27 here, Congress MLA Bharat Singh on Sunday accused a Minister in the Gehlot government of corruption and hindering the work. Mr. Singh, who represents Sangod Assembly constituency in Kota district, has written a letter to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot alleging corruption in the State’s mining department. ‘Save govt. from corrupt’ In the letter he has requested Mr. Gehlot to save the government from the “corrupt people” to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. He also referred to the Chief Minister’s budget speech in which Mr. Gehlot had said his government would work to put an end to “the flowing Ganga of corruption”. The central government wants to repair the highway stretch but the State mining department is raising obstacles, the letter said. He alleged that funds worth ₹208.54 crore have been sanctioned for maintenance work on NH-27, but an assistant engineer of the mining department in Baran is apparently raising hurdles on the directions of the Minister and not issuing the requisite permission letter to the contractor for the maintenance work. “What honesty is there in a department where its head is already corrupt“?, he said in the letter without naming the Minister. The MLA further said in the letter that the contractor himself has narrated his ordeal to him.Mining Minister Notably, Pramod Jain Bhaya, the MLA from Anta area of Baran district is the Mining Minister. Speaking to PTI on Sunday, Mr. Singh said, “The amount has been sanctioned and the work will begin but hindrance is being caused by the Minister who should be expediting the work,” he said. He said Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari has responded positively to the work but the ground reality was “very unfortunate”.last_img read more

first_imgThe province is helping to create 520 jobs, many in rural Nova Scotia, thanks to investments in a world-class company that specializes in the innovative use of fish and seaweed extracts. Ocean Nutrition Canada will build a $21.5-million manufacturing facility in Dartmouth with provincial support, as part of phase one of the company’s expansion in Nova Scotia. “We are helping to create new opportunities for Nova Scotians and new opportunities for our province’s life sciences industry,” Premier John Hamm said today, Aug. 30. “Our support means a world-class company, with its roots in Nova Scotia, is going to be exporting around the world with products made right here.” “This deal means jobs and opportunities in rural and urban Nova Scotia and it means Ocean Nutrition is staying here, where the company belongs,” said Ernest Fage, Minister of Economic Development. “We expect additional spinoffs from this announcement, including increased R&D activity in the life sciences industry in Nova Scotia.” “This is an exciting day for Ocean Nutrition Canada and Nova Scotia,” said Robert Orr, president of Ocean Nutrition Canada. “What we are announcing today is a major step forward in the continuing growth of the life sciences sector in our province.” Ocean Nutrition Canada’s new production facility will be a 40,000-square-foot plant in Woodside Knowledge Park. The plan will allow the company to micro-encapsulate its Omega 3 fish-oil product, which is used as a nutritional supplement in a wide variety of foods. The province is investing $7 million in job-based incentives, $6.5 million in loan guarantees and $2 million in land servicing costs. The province’s announcement is expected to help strengthen existing life science firms and attract new firms to Nova Scotia. “Today’s announcement is great news for the life sciences industry in Nova Scotia and confirms our position as a centre for ‘commercialization realization’ when it comes to bioscience,” said Stephen Duff, president of BioNova, the province’s life sciences industry association. “Ocean Nutrition Canada has transformed local research into patented intellectual property and is applying it to new products to create new global markets. BioNova sees this investment in Ocean Nutrition as an investment in the future of our industry.”last_img read more

first_imgFor only the second time in Canadian history, there will be a Diamond Jubilee, and Nova Scotians will have a number of opportunities to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s service to Canada and the Commonwealth. In 2012, the Jubilee will commemorate Her Majesty’s 60th anniversary as Queen. The only previous such occasion was for Queen Victoria in 1897. “Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee will provide Nova Scotians with the opportunity to again show their affection and admiration for the Queen,” said Deputy Premier Frank Corbett. “Our province had the opportunity to show our gratitude to Her Majesty and His Royal Highness during the Royal Couple’s tour last summer, and to reflect on the personal ties we have with the monarchy.” Lt.-Gov. Mayann Francis said Nova Scotia has always been among Canada’s most dedicated supporters of the Royal family. “The Diamond Jubilee is a perfect opportunity for young people to understand the significance of Her Majesty’s reign in our nation’s development,” said Lt.-Gov. Francis. “I can think of no better occasion to celebrate the democratic principles she embodies as Canada’s Head of State.” A number of events, co-ordinated by the provincial Protocol Office, are being planned throughout the year to celebrate the Feb. 6, 2012 anniversary of Her Majesty becoming Queen. Nova Scotia has been honoured to host Her Majesty and His Royal Highness during five tours to the province.

By Sarra JouiniTunis – Tunisian youth belonging to the world’s largest student-run organization, AIESEC, will launch a national project called “Educate Me.”“Educate Me” aims to teach the English language in a modern and creative way. The initiative provides a different type of learning environment for participants, as international interns who are AIESEC exchange participants will deliver classes.“Educate Me” opens the door for more communication and interaction from both the teacher and the learner. Designing a space where different cultures meet under the same roof makes the learning experience even more enjoyable.Lisa Bunesco, from Romania, was an exchange participant with AIESEC and was chosen to work in “Educate Me 2014.” She said, “I have been teaching English to over 100 college students for 3 months. Looking back, I know it was the best decision I could ever have taken. It was more than a language course; it has been a mutual intercultural learning experience.”“Teaching English has been a journey which gave a new meaning to my life and made me feel that my work there could indeed positively impact the future careers of my students with whom I still keep in touch,” she added.The organizers chose English as the language of instruction because it is the most used language in the world. For students, acquiring this language makes global opportunities more accessible and renders them much more competent in the labor market. read more

Having recently moved homes, I’ve spent a lot of time in the last month calling into a variety of contact centers to get my utilities set up, billing information changed, personal information updated, and problems corrected. Some of these interactions went smoothly, while others left a bad impression. Tags:News & ViewswebinarmultichannelContact Center & Customer ExperienceAI & AutomationCCaaSCustomer ExperienceDigital TransformationNews & Views Articles You Might Like As an example of the latter, take my experience with an Internet services provider I contacted regarding whether my residence falls within its coverage area. On its website, the provider offered chat and phone options. Because I didn’t have a solid Internet connection at the house yet and wanted to conserve my mobile data, I tried the old-school method of a phone call. Upon dialing, I received an automated message that the contact center was experiencing a high volume of calls and I was placed in the call queue. How to Plan a Smooth Contact Center Cloud Migration Elizabeth Magill September 24, 2019 A strategic migration plan must answer three important questions. CXSurvey_774.png See All in Contact Center & Customer Experience » This is the topic we’ll be exploring in the upcoming webinar with contact center industry analyst Sheila McGee-Smith, of McGee-Smith Analytics. Register now to hear from one of the industry’s all-stars on how businesses can design their customer experiences to be ready for the scalability and flexibility required by seasonal business demands. You’ll learn about new approaches to capacity scalability, how supporting work-from-home agents can be game-changer, and how you can apply new technologies like artificial intelligence to ensure that your contact center organization is agile enough to provide exceptional customer experience, even while dealing with the heaviest of call volumes. Traditionally, contact centers would have handled seasonal business spikes by engineering for peak demand and hiring additional employees. These seasonal employees might have had the requisite skills and knowledge, but chances are they wouldn’t have known the business or have been able to provide the customer experience in the manner business executives desired. But in this modern era, organizations can take advantage of new tools that allow them to deliver digitally transformed customer care capable of scaling with their businesses. Why You Need to Care About CX of Connected Consumers Blair Pleasant September 30, 2019 Today, enterprises are distinguishing themselves with personal, robust customer experiences. But can it be too much? Ten minutes later, and still in the queue, I figured I’d try the chat channel while I was waiting — just to see. I fired up my Verizon MiFi hotspot and clicked the button to launch a Webchat. Within about 30 seconds, I got through to an agent; meanwhile I was still waiting in that call queue. I was able to get all my questions answered via chat, so hung up on the still-unanswered call. Had I not tried the Webchat avenue, who knows how long I would have been waiting, only to find out that, no, my residence was not within the provider’s service area.

Below is an opinion piece done by prominent Attorney-at-Law, Member of Parliament and former Attorney General Anil Nandlall:Former Attorney General Anil NandlallThere is a legal opinion making the rounds which argues that the no-confidence motion was not lawfully passed. The ground upon which this opinion is premised is that thirty-three (33) votes do not constitute a majority of a sixty-five (65) members National Assembly.This argument is not a new one. It came to me as Attorney-General when our government was in a minority. I did not pay much attention to it then. Nor do I accept it now.I set out my reasons hereunder.The Speaker has already ruled that the Motion was carried.Both the Prime Minister, on the night that the Motion was carried and the President the following day, have publicly indicated that the Motion was carried, that the government has fallen and that they will abide with the Constitutional prescription which flows therefrom.Like many other Commonwealth jurisdictions, apart from the Constitution, there is no other legislation in existence which governs the way that Parliament and the National Assembly function. Article 168(1) of the Constitution provides that, “…all questions proposed for decision in the National Assembly shall be determined by a majority of the votes of the members present and voting”. ‘Members’ in this context obviously means elected members, as non-elected members cannot vote.Article 106(6) of the Constitution provides that: “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence”.So the pivotal question which arises is what amounts to a majority in an Assembly of sixty-five (65). The term majority is not defined by the Constitution. It is not a legal term of art. Therefore, one has to look at the literal grammatical meaning of the word and the way it has been interpreted in and for the purpose of voting in our National Assembly over the years.The New Oxford Dictionary of English defines ‘majority’ as “the greater number…”. West’s Legal Thesaurus/ Dictionary defines ‘majority’ as “the greater number; more than half, plurality…”.It is clear that thirty-three (33), is a larger number than thirty-two (32), it is the plurality and it is more than half of sixty-five (65). As I indicated above, the law and rules governing Parliament and the National Assembly largely evolve and devolve out of ‘practice’. Hence the leading parliamentary manual in the Commonwealth is titled “May’s Parliamentary Practice”. Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to examine the parliamentary practice in Guyana in relation to voting.I submit that the practice has always been that thirty-three (33), votes are sufficient to carry any motion or any bill put forward for passage in the National Assembly. It is for this reason that APNU+AFC, with their one seat majority of thirty-three (33), were able to cut the annual budgets in the tenth (10) Parliament when the PPP had only thirty-two (32) seats. It is by the same measure, they were able to vote down the legislative changes required for the AML/CFT laws, the Amaila Falls Project etc.More importantly, if thirty-three (33), is not a majority in a sixty-five (65) members National Assembly then APNU+AFC could not have lawfully formed the Government after the 2015 Elections. Neither could they have passed any bills or any budgets in that National Assembly. All the above were only possible because by our parliamentary practice, thirty-three (33) was always considered a majority in our sixty-five (65) members National Assembly.No case cited from any foreign land can change this parliamentary and constitutional reality.Significantly, our Constitution speaks not of an ‘absolute majority’ but of a ‘majority’. These terminologies are different and they are guided by different principles.By analogy, in the Judiciary, the decision by 2 judges in the Court of Appeal is and has always been a majority in a Court of 3 Judges. I suppose in due recognition of the reality that we do not have “a half judge”!I hope that I have, in clear and simple language, put that legal opinion to rest.

first_imgGrinnell Products and Ansul, both premium brands of Tyco International, will be demonstrating their latest innovations at the Mining World Russia event between 24-26 April in Moscow. Grinnell Products has announced the release of the G-Mine PVC Piping System designed for the mining industry. This new system is comprised of high strength PVC pipes, couplings, and fittings all of which conform to ASTM D 1784. G-Mine PVC Pipe and Fittings are manufactured from a specially formulated PVC compound that provides higher impact strength over an extended period of time. This allows for the installation of G-Mine PVC Pipe and Fittings in above-ground, exposed mining applications. Ansul will be showcasing its A-101 mobile equipment fire suppression systems.The Grinnelll G-Mine PVC Piping System is NSF-14 certified, except for SDR 13.5 which is NSF-61 certified. The inherent properties of PVC provides products that will not rust or corrode. G-Mine PVC is extremely resistant to harsh environments, acids, and most chemicals. Pipes and fittings based on it provide a system of piping and non-corrosive restrained joints that use precision-machined grooves on the pipe and in the fittings. When aligned, these grooves allow easy insertion of a spline, which locks the pipe and fittings together. A flexible, elastomeric seal (O-ring) in the fitting creates a hydraulic seal.Since introducing vehicle fire suppression systems into the mining industry in the 1960s, Ansul believes that it has remained at the cutting edge of innovation. Operating in rugged, hazardous environments with highly flammable fuels, oils and pressurised hydraulic fluid lines, mining vehicles and heavy equipment are at increased risk of serious fire events. The standard Ansul A-101 mobile equipment fire suppression system discharges Ansul Foray dry chemical agent to quickly knock down flames in specific high-hazard areas, or flood entire volumes with the agent. Systems can also be designed with twin agent fire suppression capability with Ansul LVS liquid agent to prevent reflash and suppress burning fuels. Ansul also offers a wide range of ancillary products including infrared detection and additional dry chemical extinguishers to provide plant operators with peace of mind that their mining equipment and vehicles are fully protected. Also on stand at the exhibition will be the recently launched Ansul LVS liquid vehicle suppression system. This provides a stand-alone cooling and suppression system with one agent suitable for a wide variety of on-road and off-road vehicles. The wet chemical cooling soaking characteristics “ensures effective performance in a range of applications including public transportation, cargo transport and industrial sectors such as mining, forestry and landfill.” With flexible design and installation parameters, a wide temperature range from -40°C to 60°C and a 25-year shelf life, “end users can be confident that the Ansul LVS system provides a versatile vehicle protection solution with ease of maintenance and recharge.”last_img read more

first_imgFrench yellow vests stage 20th week of protests as banks call for end for violence The demonstrations began in November of last year. Teargas is used to disperse demonstrators during minor clashes with police in Paris last week. Saturday 30 Mar 2019, 3:40 PM Image: Kamil Zihnioglu via PA Images 51 Comments FRENCH “YELLOW VEST”  demonstrators today staged their 20th week of anti-government protests despite bans in hotspot areas, as banks called for an end to violence against branches, cash machines and personnel.Police struggled the previous weekend to contain violence by highly-organised demonstrators who smashed shop windows and set fire to newspaper kiosks and a bank in the capital.Local authorities today declared iconic sites such as the Champs Elysees avenue in Paris and the centre of Bordeaux, in southwestern France, off limits to demonstrations.The presidential Elysee palace and the National Assembly were also cordoned off by police.President Emmanuel Macron has reacted to the ongoing protests, which began last November, by embarking on a cross-country tour as part of a “Great National Debate” aimed at encouraging disgruntled citizens to express themselves through a structured dialogue.The protests began in rural France on 17 November over fuel tax increases and quickly ballooned into a full-scale anti-government rebellion.In recent weeks, the protesters’ numbers have dwindled but those still on the streets appear more determined.Initial reports at midday today said that around 300 demonstrators had gathered at the Paris Gare de l’Est train station and the Paris prefecture said two demonstrations and four gatherings had been organised, with one march to end near the Eiffel Tower.“It is still the same goal, social justice and the RIC (citizen initiated referendum), especially when there are economic choices to be made,” said a 43-year-old demonstrator who gave his first name as Jean-Edouard.‘Unbridled and unjustified violence’The French banking federation called for an end to attacks during “yellow vest” protests, saying that more than 760 banks have suffered damage since the movement began last year.Banks have often been the targets of vandalism and arson during the protests, and last week 11 people were injured when a Banque Tarneaud branch was set on fire near the Champs Elysees.“We must quickly put a stop to this unbridled and unjustified violence,” the federation said in comments published in the daily Le Monde.With the Paris authorities clamping down, regional protests came into focus, with protests bans in other city centres, including Avignon, Lille and Toulouse.Lille officials offered demonstrators an alternative path however. People who take part in unauthorised demonstrations risk an increased fine of €135.In Bordeaux, where violent clashes have broken during previous protests, the Mayor Nicolas Florian shut down the city after authorities warned of the possible arrival of “hundreds of thugs”.Residents were urged to stay indoors to avoid unintended clashes with police.A demonstration was planned in the Mediterranean city of Nice, where a 73-year-old activist was injured last week after she was pushed by police and hit her head while falling.Police had initially insisted that no officer pushed the woman, but rectified that position following an internal investigation.Last Saturday, 40,500 people demonstrated across France according to police while “yellow vest” sources put the figure at more than 127,000.Last week, Macron continued to meet with mayors as part of regional tours linked to the national debate.He is scheduled to end the tour Thursday on the Mediterranean island of Corsica.- © AFP 2019, https://jrnl.ie/4568717 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlecenter_img Teargas is used to disperse demonstrators during minor clashes with police in Paris last week.

The short-term contracts offered mean that many of them aren’t able to receive holiday pay, and in some cases have financial insecurity. A survey conducted by the Australian Education Union found that 50 per cent of the new teachers were so disatisfied that they were planning on leaving their roles as teachers within ten years. The teachers interviewed for the survey also said that the lack of job security had a negative effect on their teaching ability. last_img

first_imgGianluigi Buffon feels that Cristiano Ronaldo’s summer arrival likely stopped more Juventus players from following him out of the clubThe veteran goalkeeper chose to end a 17-year stay with Juventus at the end of last season in favour of a free transfer to Paris Saint-GermainBut Buffon thinks he wouldn’t have been the only summer departure from Turin had Ronaldo not arrived from Real Madrid in a €112m deal.“For me, it was time to say ‘enough’,” Buffon told Tiki Taka on Sport Mediaset on Twitter.“Juve probably felt others could’ve left and that the only way to reawaken everyone was buying Cristiano.”Despite missing out on the chance of playing with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, Buffon has no regrets on his decision to go to France.PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.“I think, speaking in a friendly way with the president after such a long and stressful period because being a Juventus player and captain weighs on you a little, even if it’s an honour, the time had come for us to go our separate ways,” Buffon added.“I considered retiring or carrying on playing if an incredible offer from a top club came my way. If it had come from an exotic League, I wouldn’t have considered it.“The offer from PSG arrived in May, and it made me consider the option of playing for another year or two.“It was an unnatural choice but one I thought about a lot. We left each other on sweet terms, that’s what I wanted and I think everyone else did too.“I won seven Scudetti in a row and even if you’re stronger, you never take winning for granted. It involves so much nervous fatigue.”Buffon has made 10 appearances in all competitions for PSG this season.last_img read more
