I know.  redirecting funds to the regional hospitals, which were neglected by the PPP is a fine example of how they copy the PPP.

 

Did APNU/AFC say that they were going to move ahead with Amaila Falls? You will admit that the PPP really messed up that project with the millions wasted on a man whose only qualification was that he is an Indian.  Fip Motilall should be made to refund moneys paid to him.

Looks like you trying to defend the indefensible. If you agree with these projects then it means that you have to acknowledge that afc/apnu have no vision as they now stoop to carrying on PPP projects that they criticized and blocked in parliament for years.  I have been saying this for the longest time, these bunch of crooks now in office are vision less. 

 

DG, why don't you open a thread to track the new development ideas by the afc/apnu, so far it is zero. They even abandoned the ethanol dream as well as other value added initiatives they were promising during the campaign.

LIKE DRUNKIE NORTON cannot get his act together.

Guyana is an infrastructural wasteland - human and physical

 

dangling "medical tourism" to justify elitism, squander and tiefmanism is a sick PPP joke served up to hopeful, under-informed poor people

 

the remaining 'specialty hospital' money is now properly being used for upgrade of regional (Potemkin) hospitals to decent 3rd World standards

I have always said the new hospital is a good idea, just that you don't want one of those fake companies to make it. You don't want another Jagdeoesque Skeldon factory. They will not see any medical tourism, but it is good to have new medical enterprises. This is going to create work for high value professionals. The new govt. is having some successes. They are cleaning up GT. They are catching criminals and pushers. They put Maduro in his place. That's progress in spite of the dire challenges.

As usual, object for the sake of objecting just because it was the PPP.  Now it's the PNC, great idea.

 

Nehru's characterization of nemaks is so on target.

baseman, might i suggest (again) that u engage what's left of yuh brain before bleating like the prancing, ignorant sheep we have come to know and pity

 

i disagree with him, but TK has always held that position!

Well at least they get a trickle compared to NOTHING under the PPP.

eGovernment Unit begins roll out of Wi-Fi in schools

  • Tuesday, 17 November 2015 13:30

 

eGovernment Advisor, Floyd Levi eGovernment Advisor, Floyd Levi

 
 
The eGovernment Unit  has begun rolling out Wi- Fi networks in schools, while Hinterland and remote areas are expected to benefit from internet access by the end of the first quarter of 2016, the Ministry of the Presidency said Tuesday.
 
eGovernment Advisor, Floyd Levi, in an invited comment said that at present, the eGovernment Unit is focused on facilitating the implementation of the infrastructural networks – the transmission and the data networks and the setting up of ICT Hubs across the country.
 
ICT Hubs and Wi-Fi for Schools
Levi disclosed that that the government was focusing on having the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Hubs and Internet Access Points operational by the end of 2016. The ICT Hubs are especially critical for the Wi-Fi networks to become operational. These are expected to benefit all Guyanese but more so, the remote and under developed communities.

 The roll out of Wi-Fi in secondary schools has begun at the President’s College, following a visit by President Granger to the institution in October.  Levi said that this is the first project in this category and it will be treated as a pilot to determine the exact needs and requirements for the other schools to benefit.
 
“What it does is that it gives them access to the eGovernment network, not just for internet access but for all government applications that we will publish on the network. We are using this as the pilot project, to ensure that we are able to fulfill the demands and requirements and then we move on to the other schools. We expect that this can be done within the first quarter of 2016. We have been mandated to provide internet access to all tertiary educational institutes, such as the Cyril Potter College of Education, the University of Guyana (UG), all of the Technical Institutes and Secondary schools,” he said.
 
Additionally, all government ministries, agencies and public buildings will be outfitted with Wi-Fi networks for visitors and consumers to access during their visits.
 
The Advisor to the EGovernment Unit assured that usage of the Wi-Fi service is monitored so as to ensure students’ safety and control.
 
“At President’s College, they have a strict regime. The Wi-Fi comes on at 6:00 am and goes off at 10:00 pm and what we have done is to install a “white list” of sites. This blocks them from visiting sites, which is not approved by the administration or is deemed inappropriate. This is in keeping with international guidelines so there is control.,” he said.  
 
Wi-Fi for Hinterland and Remote Areas
Levi went on to disclose that the Unit was actively pursuing a similar project, this time to service students in the Hinterland and remote areas, who have limited or no access to internet.

To this end, he said that work has already commenced in the Paramakatoi, Region Eight area.

“Some of the subjects that are taught at the CXC levels require that School Based Assessments (SBAs) are submitted online and the students who live here at are a disadvantage with that so we are trying to fix this.  The ground work is currently being done and we are working towards getting all elements in place. We have a very ambitious plan for the hinterland and remote areas,” the advisor said.
 

Support from Microsoft
The advisor several weeks ago had met with regional representatives of the Microsoft and CISCO Corporations to discuss support for the planned Information Communication Technology (ICT) initiatives.

According to him, plans are underway to consolidate internet access and email services for ministries, by way of an agreement, which would soon see email addresses for these agencies being moved to the gov.gy domain. Levi explained that the collaboration between the two organisations was crucial to the overall success of that Unit. 

“What has happened since then is that we’ve gotten trial versions so that we can have a clear understanding of what is being offered. We will go for a central hosting of government websites under Microsoft as well as government emailing systems and we will be signing an agreement with them very soon on this,” he disclosed. 

One Laptop Per Teacher
The One Laptop Per Teacher (OLPT) project which will replace the One Laptop Per Family is also managed under the eGovernment Unit. Asked on the status of this, Levi said that the first shipment of the laptops, which are being acquired under a grant from the Government of China is currently undergoing several tests to ensure that they are not problematic as was the case with the previous batch which was sent.

Perhaps, dribbles here and there.

I noticed many of your friends are flocking to the Food Banks in your hood.

They are lazy. They are taking credit for the PPP's hard work.

You mean they are releasing crimminals. This must be a new definition of success. Hopefully you can contact the Oxford Dictionary company to redefine the word success.

Jalil, like everything here, wait until next year and you will see how they are not working and they asking NGOs to take up the maintenance slack.

Hey DG, it looks like you are correct, those development that Jalil and Mitwah post on this thread is just the continuation of PPP initiatives.  Maybe Gerhard will come to their rescue and implement that plywood computer into production.

Well the PNC boys are repairing Kitty Market and delivered 2 boats to the Lindeners - does that count?

 

That is considered massive development for the AFC/PNC fools.

I forgot to mention the large Pole, sorry flag pole that they gave to Guyanese.

The operative word is "New". The kitty market repair was already in the pipeline as part of the PPP initiative, they were just executing with money already put aside by the PPP.   I don't think the 2 boats can qualify as new development.

I guess they simply liked the look of the old rotting shell more than the actual doing of the repair. The PPP is not repairing it and they will not repair the Stabroek wharf. Actually the next time they will be in office should be "not for a long time".

Actually it is the job of Green to repair these structures as it belongs to the municipality. The PPP put aside money from the national coffers to pay for what Green should have done. In terms of the wharf, another city owned structure which Greene neglected and now Granger will take money away from the Indian villages to rebuild this structure and again bail Greene out. After all he got lifetime award, so Greene is a saint.

They have almost completed 25% of their tenure and no new ideas, anyone with half of a brain can predict their disaster.  If they could have 'proved' themselves we would have heard of something original already.
