I need your help, Mr President

first_imgDear Editor,I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to the President for being the only President in our country’s history to clearly outline the requirements for someone to fill the vacant position of Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission. Bravo, Mr President!Now that you have done that, can you now let us know what is/are the requirement(s) for someone holding the position of a Minister of the Government? It would appear to me that most of the persons currently serving as Ministers may not be able to confirm with your standard. Some of them are total failures and an embarrassment to our Government and people.While you are at that, Mr. President, it would be helpful if you can also let us know what qualities a person must possess to respectively be President and Prime Minister of our country. My gut feeling is that the current holders are not qualified to hold those positions.I need your help, Mr President.Sincerely,Charles Sugrimlast_img read more

Total disrespect for Guyanese

first_imgDear Editor,We have seen total disrespect for the people of Guyana. President Granger and his advisers have shown total disregard for the Constitution and the very honourable courts. Such delaying tactics must cease, and the only way is by means of sanctions against Guyana, and in particular, financial sanctions – which would halt all banking transactions to and from Guyana.Such sanctions are to be withdrawn once there are free and fair elections according to the Constitution and the CCJ.With the Government presently engrossed with their survival, the investors and oil companies must be gleaming and rubbing their hands saying let it continue as long as possible so there is no interference with their operations. The Government forgot their responsibility to all Guyanese. They are the losers.Finally, I think President Granger should extricate himself from the shell where he is cocooned by his not so clever advisers, and show the nation that he is at least trying to be a statesman with respect for the people of Guyana, its Constitution and the law.Sincerely,Quin Andersonlast_img read more

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! It’s a sad commentary on California’s bureaucracy that the governor’s reformer for prisons is leaving after less than two years because he just couldn’t get support for cleaning up the shameful prison system. California’s Secretary of Corrections Roderick Q. Hickman apparently had enough wrangling with the entrenched bureaucracy and the corrections workers unions. “The special interests we’re up against are just too powerful to get much done in the current environment,” he said. Hickman was appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to clean up a system plagued by inhumane conditions and violence. In all, it’s an object lesson in the intractability of the bureaucracy that’s supposed to serve the public and really only serves itself.last_img read more

OpenID 2.0 Finally Launched

first_imgrichard macmanus A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… The open identity system OpenID 2.0 was launched today at the Internet Identity Workshop in Mountain View, after what Marshall Kirkpatrick recently described as “a long, long time of political infighting over either semi-relevant minutea or deal-breaking technical details.” The new version improves security and usability — and will hopefully be the catalyst for more Internet companies to adopt it.According to the announcement, more than 8,000 Web sites currently accept OpenID and this figure is growing by five percent per week – although Marshall mentioned in his post that this figure is down from 7% in February. But support for OpenID is gradually growing; just last week Google Blogger unveiled support in the next version of Blogger. A number of Internet companies, such as digg, have promised to implement OpenID once 2.0 arrived.Marshall wrote an in-depth critique of OpenID 2.0 a week ago, which I encourage you to read to fully understand the significance of this announcement. OpenID is the way of the future for identity on the Web, so expect more adoption – and deeper support from existing adoptees such as AOL, Google and Microsoft – in 2008 and beyond.
