City Hall to commence clearing of parapets

first_imgThe Georgetown Mayor and City Council (M&CC) will soon recommence the clearing of city parapets and persons found breaching the bylaws of Council will be charged.This is according to acting Town Clerk Sharon Harry-Munroe. The issue was discussed at Monday’s statutory meeting held at City Hall, Regent Street, Georgetown.She explained that persons have until this month-end to remove derelicts, including old refrigerators, vehicles and even stones from parapets. Currently, the acting Town Clerk pointed out that residents are being informed of the upcoming campaign to have the items removed. This is being done via radio and television programmes, as well as notices in newspapers, she said.“We are giving residents within Georgetown time that they can know what is to be expected so no one will be able to say that due process was not done,” Harry-Munroe stated.She later told Guyana Times in an interview that this campaign has been conducted in the past. However, this specific one is special, in that, residents are being informed before their materials are removed.The acting Town Clerk admitted, “We would have gone out and just do it but on this occasion we are taking a different approach whereby we are notifying our residents that we will have this campaign and persons a part of the bylaw, they are not supposed to be encumbering the parapet which includes having old vehicles, fridges, some persons like to put up stones and things like that”.Reiterating that the Council has been trying to notify these residents of the campaign, she added that the sensitisation process started a while back to give persons a two months period to remove these items.Recognising that a lot of people who live, work, or just conduct business in the City are unaware of its bylaws, Harry-Munroe said that the Council is looking at ways to sensitise persons to ensure they adhere to these regulations.It was explained that the removal of these items will be done at the expense of residents. Furthermore persons found breaching the laws will be punished by the Council. “Persons will be charged…it’s a breach of the bylaws and once you breach the bylaws then, of course, there is a penalty. We will charge them and they would have a removal fee,” the acting Town Clerk warned.The campaign to remove these items, which will begin by month-end, will be done by Constituency. For example, Constituency One will be cleared before the Council moves into Constituency Two.last_img read more

Neanderthal Genes: Evolutionists Surprised at How Wrong They Were

first_imgA substantial amount of Neanderthal genes in a modern human skeleton is not what they had predicted.The headline reads: “Early modern humans interbred with Neanderthals: An early European had a close Neanderthal ancestor.” DNA from a jawbone discovered in a Romanian cave has been sequenced. Finding 8 to 11 percent of Neanderthal DNA in this individual’s genome means that it had a Neanderthal ancestor as near as its great-great-grandparent. This strengthens the case that Neanderthals and modern humans are members of the same species. They produced fertile offspring, not sterile hybrids. Evidence for interbreeding between the two human “species” (Homo sapiens and Homo neanderthalensis) now comes from a wide area stretching from western Siberia to Romania.Here are some reactions from evolutionary anthropologists, as reported in the secular media:“I could hardly believe it when we first saw the results” — Svante Pääbo from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology who led the study. (Science Daily)“The data from the jawbone imply that humans mixed with Neanderthals not just in the Middle East but in Europe as well.” (Ibid.)“It’s an incredibly unexpected thing,” said Prof David Reich, a co-author of the paper from the Harvard Medical School. (BBC News)The large spans of Neanderthal-like segments in Oase 1’s genome indicate that one of his human ancestors interbred with a Neanderthal less than 200 years before he lived. (Live Science)In the past decade, the analysis of ancient DNA from fossil skeletons of anatomically modern humans has revealed a startling fact: some of our direct ancestors had sex with Neanderthals, producing fertile offspring. Prior to these genetic revelations, anthropological researchers were divided between those who firmly believed that such unions either did not occur, or that they could not have yielded sexually fertile offspring, because the differences between early modern humans and Neanderthal genomes would have been too great. (Scott Armstrong Elias in The Conversation)These reactions show: (1) earlier evolutionary thinking about Neanderthals was wrong; (2) the data were not predicted; (3) the results were surprising and startling—even unbelievable. In science that usually amounts to falsification.Reconstructing the Unseen IndirectlyThis is not the only problem in paleoanthropology. PNAS just published a report stating that “Despite its importance for understanding genetic, cultural, and linguistic evolution, prehistoric human population history has remained difficult to reconstruct.” A new look at climate proxies for the assumed “last glacial maximum” (LGM) shows errors in previous models: “Although climate has been an important determinant of human population dynamics, the climatic conditions during the last glacial were not as harsh as is often presented, because even during the coldest phases, the climatically suitable area for humans covered 36% of Europe.” Creation scientists believe in a single Ice Age, when climate took a few centuries to stabilize after the Flood.Embarrassing Confessions from an InsiderOne of the leading evolutionary paleoanthropologists just wrote a shocking tell-all about his field. Ian Tattersall’s new book, The Strange Case of the Rickety Cossack: And Other Cautionary Tales from Human Evolution (2015), was reviewed in Nature under the headline, “Human evolution: How we misread our own story.” Tattersall reveals some of the egregious missteps in the history of evolutionary anthropology, from Piltdown Man to the present. This gives little confidence in the current batch of experts. The book “is an interesting critical evaluation of how palaeoanthropology has developed,” William Davies writes in his review. “Rivalries between teams are delineated and used to explain how we know what we know.” If so much previous teaching has been demolished, can we trust what we are being told now? “Many new hominin species have been identified in recent years, but it is not yet clear how they are related to us.” As usual, “more work is needed,” he ends.Science Magazine‘s review is similarly pessimistic. Erika Lorraine Milam begins with an interesting thought experiment:What would happen if, tomorrow, scientists were to rediscover the entire hominid fossil record, without any preconceptions inherited from the last century? According to Ian Tattersall, curator emeritus of anthropology at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH), the resulting picture of human evolution would differ dramatically from that bequeathed to today’s paleontologists by their predecessors. In The Strange Case of the Rickety Cossack, he traces the contingencies, false starts, and diversity of opinions that have characterized the intellectual history of paleoanthropology from Darwin to today.She just said that the false starts and disagreements continue right to the present. It would be possible, given this confession, to start a completely different story if the data were considered objectively from scratch. “History, Tattersall reminds us, defines who we think we are,” she concludes. “In his retelling, this rings true both for the scientific debates and convergences that comprise his narrative and for the long, complex history of hominids that paleoanthropologists are still piecing together.” One can only imagine how the smattering of bones and skulls would be interpreted without the assumption of millions of years.Now that the evolutionary anthropologists have been wrong about Neanderthals for over a century (5/08/10, 9/23/08), what should be done? Fire them. Repudiate them. Stop listening to them. Laugh at them. Then censure them for historical revisionism and racism (5/06/14). The DNA doesn’t fit their evolutionary story. It couldn’t, because it’s only a few thousand years old. The only way to say it’s older is to assume evolution. But if the evolutionists are already untrustworthy and wrong, their assumptions about DNA survivability should be tossed out with them. Their whole timeline and evolutionary saga is made up! We don’t need just “cautionary tales.” Fire the storytellers!If they want to keep their jobs, we could offer them the option of using their training and skills to interpret their finds within the framework that fits the evidence: creation.

African farmers land juicy deal

first_imgMangoes and passion fruit produced bysmall-scale farmers in Kenya and Ugandawill now be used to manufacture fruit juicefor Coca-Cola. Small-scale fruit farmers in Uganda and Kenya will soon be able to start making good money from their produce, thanks to a multimillion-dollar deal that will see them supply Coca-Cola.The beverage giant has joined NGO TechnoServe and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to form a partnership that will help more than 50 000 small farmers in Uganda and Kenya increase their output and generate a sizeable income.The three organisations have invested a combined amount of R87.5-million (US$11.5-million) to sustain the initiative over the next four years. The new partnership was launched in Uganda’s capital, Kampala, on 20 January.Coca-Cola will use mango and passion fruit from the two East African countries to make new fruit juice products for local markets. “This partnership is a great example of sustainability,” Coca-Cola’s East and Central Africa business unit president Nathan Kalumbu said in a statement.“By partnering with tens of thousands of local farmers we can help increase their incomes while meeting our needs for locally sourced fruit, benefiting both the community and our business,” Kalumbu added.Coca-Cola plans to replicate the project in other parts of the world to grow its fruit juice range. One such product in the range, Minute Maid, has already become a global hit. The company, together with one of its bottling partners, invested about R30.4-million ($4-million) in the scheme.Growing fruit juice demandThe beverage company said there’s an increasing demand for fruit juice both in East Africa and across the world, and therefore a critical need to increase production. As part of the deal the small farmers will be supplied with tools to help them increase their productivity.TechnoServe, one of the leading NGOs that help communities grow their own enterprises, will work closely with the governments of Kenya and Uganda as a hands-on partner in the implementation phase.It will also teach the farmers how to increase yields and improve quality, and help them gain access to the donor funds.“We are honoured to be a part of this innovative collaboration as it represents a significant step forward for private sector development in Africa,” said TechnoServe president and CEO Bruce McNamer.“This investment will drive momentum toward reducing poverty across Africa by helping entrepreneurial farmers connect to markets and get the support they need.”The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which donated R57-million ($7.5-million), said the initiative is very important in the global drive to reduce poverty among poor communities.“Empowering small farmers to increase productivity, improve crop quality and access reliable markets is critical to addressing global hunger and poverty,” said Sylvia Mathews Burwell, president of the foundation’s Global Development Program.“Partnerships like this provide farmers with the tools and resources that can help revitalise African agriculture and increase opportunities for small farmers so they build better lives for themselves and their families,” Burwell said.The foundation, formed by Microsoft tycoon Bill Gates and his wife Melinda, has channelled more than R10.6-billion ($1.4-billion) into to agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, Burwell said. The grants are aimed at strengthening the entire agricultural value chain – from seeds and soil to farm management and market access – to sustain long-term hunger and poverty initiatives.last_img read more

South Africa to deliver Status of Women Report

first_imgSouth Africa will know the state of women in the country when President Jacob Zuma presents the first State of the Women Report on Women’s Day. (Image: WSU)To mark Women’s Day on 9 August, President Jacob Zuma will release South Africa’s first Status of Women Report in Sasolburg, in Free State at the official ceremony for the day.This year, the theme for Women’s Month, observed each August in South Africa, is “Women united in moving South Africa forward”, and festivities are taking place against the backdrop of the 60th anniversary of the Freedom Charter as well as the 61st anniversary of the Women’s Charter. Some 20 000 women from all nine provinces are expected to attend the rally in Free State.“Following the demise of apartheid‚ South Africa has moved towards the advancement of women empowerment and gender parity,” says the government. “This was affirmed at the recent Beijing +20 Country Report, which highlighted South Africa’s human rights-based legislative framework; the institutional mechanisms put in place to promote women’s human rights‚ dignity, empowerment and gender equality; and the achievements in the representation of women in decision-making structures and processes‚ both in the public and private sectors.”ADVANCING WOMEN’S RIGHTSThe report was compiled by the Ministry in the Presidency responsible for Women. It serves as a baseline document for the work to promote the socio-economic empowerment of women and gender equality, and to advance their human rights.South Africa has been trying to advance women’s rights since the demise of apartheid.“Over the years, great strides have been made to ensure that women enjoy the same rights as their male counterparts in relation to education, employment, property, inheritance and justice,” said Phumla Williams, the acting cabinet spokesperson. “Women now enjoy equal rights, as enshrined in the Constitution. South African women have taken their rightful place in parliament, government, the private sector and civil society.”WOMEN STILL AT RISKDespite the measures put in place to protect women, as well as the strides that have been made towards gender equality, women remain vulnerable to social risks such as violence, abuse, rape, unemployment and poverty.“[The] government is aware of the challenges and will continue in its endeavours to protect democracy and women’s rights that were built on the actions of the women of the liberation movement,” Williams said. “[The] government has put in place legislation and policies to create an enabling environment for women, and to improve their participation in income-generating activities in the economy.”Gender equality and women’s empowerment was central to the government’s efforts to combat poverty and stimulate sustainable development.MONTH-LONG ACTIVITIESFestivities marking Women’s Month are aimed at creating awareness and promoting understanding of women’s issues. Activities will be held throughout the country, listed on the websites of the South African government, its communications department, and its Ministry for Women.last_img read more

The Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group started preliminary work on what is now known as HTML5 in 2004 and the W3C HTML Working Group was adopted this draft as the basis for the HTML5 specs in 2007. Some modern browsers already offer partial support for HTML5, but there are still quite a few issues that need to be resolved before we will see the finalized version of the HTML5 specifications. One area where there is still a lot of discussion is support for video in HTML5.What Codec?Philippe Le Hegaret, the interaction domain leader for the W3C, talked about this issue in an interview with WebMonkey’s Michael Calore. According to Le Hegaret, video support is still one of the main issues surrounding the development of HTML5. Safari and Chrome are both based on the same open-source WebKit engine. Video support, however, is not part of WebKit yet, so every vendor implements it differently. Currently, browser developer disagree over how to implement this feature and what codec to use. Apple wants to use uses H.264 and Mozilla, Google and Opera support Ogg Theora. As of now, HTML5 still includes the
