…PrezzieConfession, they say, is good for the soul. So, we can be certain that Prezzie’s “Confession of Georgia” about always being a “true-purple” Burnhamite, must’ve done wonders for his soul. The question, however, is what has it done for his political currency? After all, souls don’t vote in elections, bodies do. And if those bodies aren’t one with his confession, there might be trouble ahead!While many looked at the AFC as the ally that brought the coalition victory in 2015, not enough attention was placed on the WPA’s role in giving the PNC respectability by covering their spots in APNU. “Respectability” – not necessarily to the Indian voter – but to the middle class African and Mixed sceptics who weren’t convinced the street-battles of the post-1997 PNC were the vehicle to deliver the chalice of power to them.The WPA provided that respectability. It was the dream team for them: the brawns of the PNC with the brains of the WPA. During the seventies, the WPA had degutted the PNC in the moral plane by the principled positions they took on the national questions of the day. While most of them may have swallowed hard and voted for the PNC when the vote was “free and fair” in 1992, it wasn’t something they were proud about. In 2015, they could have their (PNC) cake and eat it too – courtesy of the WPA sanitisation!So, after Prezzie’s confession, WPA Exec Ogunseye fired off a missive that was more of a missile! Calling it “disturbing” and “surprising” Ogunseye figured Prezzie was either floating a trial balloon on the PNC going it alone in 2020; or alternately bigging-up his PNC credentials to oppose those in the party who may want to do so. Well, Mr Ogunseye seems to be waking up a bit late to smell the coffee, which the PNC, under Prezzie, has been brewing!Ogunseye would know Roopnaraine almost singlehandedly brought about the PNC-WPA Alliance – going back all the way to Desmond Hoyte. So when Prezzie pretty much FIRED Roopnaraine last June 13 – the anniversary of Walter Rodney’s assassination, he should’ve read the writing on the wall! Fact of the matter, Prezzie and the PNC have no use for the WPA anymore. The ones who they can get some use out of, like Clive Thomas, they’ll keep. Others like Ogunseye will be discarded!But Prezzie has also come under fire from the one-man party OVP for claiming he’s a “real” Burnhamite. Not so! Cried the “one man”. If he were, why didn’t he oppose Desmond Hoyte back in 1992 like Hamilton Green?But jeez! The Americans would’ve also been strong-arming Prezzie, wouldn’t they?!!…JordanYour Eyewitness caught sight of one of the giant posters placed around the country with a huge pic of Finance Minister Jordan smirking like the Cheshire cat!! Is this another Burnhamite practice being revived? But those were about exhortations like “PRODUCE OR PERISH!” or “THE SMALL MAN IS THE REAL MAN” and such like.The only picture allowed was that of Burnham! Those were placed even on exercise books – and more than anything else, caused Guyana to plunge to the bottom of the Caribbean standings in education!! Not easy to focus on Maths with Burnham staring morosely at you!! But the poster just highlighted Jordan’s muddle?Here he was – in front of a highway with the Budget slogans for 2015 and 2016 proceeding in the left lane. The 2017 Budget (which is supposedly coming up) however was placed going in the same direction – BUT IN THE OPPOSITE LANE!!Doesn’t Jordan realise his budget’s going to collide with incoming traffic?? Like reality?…the VCLike Finance Minister Jordan, UG’s VC Griffith boasted his graduating class was the BIGGEST ever! Now after the shameful SNAFU’s that marred the event, he accepts there was “poor planning.”Shouldn’t he do the honourable thing and resign? Like he had to do at Fort Valley State?

Wolves boss Paul Lambert is preparing for the visit of Chelsea Wolves boss Paul Lambert believes Premier League leaders Chelsea have ‘no weaknesses’ ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup clash at Molineux.Lambert’s team have already disposed of Stoke and Liverpool in this season’s competition but face their toughest task to date on Saturday evening when Antonio Conte’s side come to town.Stoke rested some players against Wolves while Liverpool played several youngsters, but the talent at Conte’s disposal is on a different level in comparison.Chelsea are eight points clear at the top of the table and have been defeated only once since October, while Wolves are 18th in the Championship and have lost their last three league matches.Lambert fails to see a weakness in the Chelsea side, even if Conte does not field his first choice line-up.“Usually I’d say the expectation is on us because we are at home, but the onus and expectancy is on Chelsea because of who they are and the resources they have got,” said Lambert, who won the Scottish Cup four times as a player.“You look at their players and everyone is an international, everyone on their bench is an international.“It’s not as if they are young and they don’t play. If Pedro doesn’t play then Willian comes in, or Cesc Fabregas can come in. They have got no weaknesses at all.”It is clear the size of the task facing Wolves is not lost on Lambert but he hopes his team can spring another surprise, as they did at the bet365 Stadium and at Anfield.Burnley were praised last weekend for the way they contained Chelsea to earn a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor but the Scot insists he will not be copying the approach of Clarets counterpart Sean Dyche.“We will need to punch above our weight and stay in the game as long as we can,” said Lambert.“We will have to do what we are good at and not get drawn into playing Chelsea’s way. We will have to find a way of taking them out of their comfort zone, as we did at Liverpool.“What Burnley did was excellent but I saw the possession stats were incredibly high in Chelsea’s favour, which you would expect. Burnley are ahead of us in league terms and Sean has done a great job there but I would be uncomfortable with teams having a lot of the ball.“I’m not so sure, so I’m not going to play the same way that Burnley did. That’s taking nothing away from Burnley because they got a brilliant result but when you sit and wait for a team to come at you you’ve got to hope they have an off-day and don’t fire at all levels.” 1

The building, which is owned by the city, is leased by the Social Security Administration Office of Hearings and Appeals and by the the AERO Institute, a nonprofit educational institution created by Palmdale, the California Space Grant Consortium and the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center’s Office of Academic Investment. The institute provides space for aerospace engineering and design classes sponsored by universities including Purdue; California State Polytechnic University, Pomona; University of Southern California; University of California, San Diego; California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo; and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Defender Scott McKenna has gone on to become a key player for club and country since making his debut for McInnes’ men back in 2016.The Aberdeen boss said the powerful centre-halves’ rise has proven inspirational for the next players looking to make the breakthrough in the north-east.“McKenna has been the catalyst,” he added. “McKenna has shown what can be done and it has encouraged others to go and try and be that important player too.“It is easy to get into an Aberdeen team and play on the periphery and get minutes here and there.“It isn’t easy to stay in the team because of what is expected so it gives me great pleasure to see so many of the younger ones step up and show their capabilities.“The challenge for them is to sustain it.” He said: “I’ve not changed, the young players have to be good enough to play.“There is a demand on me to make sure Aberdeen are competitive and that is what we have been over the last six years.“That wasn’t happening before, there were plenty of youngsters playing for Aberdeen but were they good enough to sustain sustain a place in a successful Aberdeen team? No.“So I’ve not changed, what has changed are we have had more mature performances from younger ones.” Derek McInnes says Aberdeen’s young guns now must prove their worth in the long run after “stepping up” to star for the Dons.A Pittodrie side with an average age of just 21 won 2-0 at Rangers to book their spot in the Scottish Cup semi-finals.Teenagers Dean Campbell and Connor McLellan played key roles in the victory, with the latter scoring the decisive second goal.McInnes hailed the impact of the Dons’ prospects this season after previously struggling to find youngsters ready to thrive at first-team level.
Stand-alone funding for the Laghy to Pettigo Road has been secured with €1million granted by the Department of Transport. It is the first time the South Donegal road has received funding of this nature, following a motion to the council in 2017.Speaking following the announcement, Councillor Michael Naughton said: “This will be a huge asset to the South and South West of Donegal, not alone to Donegal Town but to areas such as Glencolmcille. “Many people also use this road while travelling to Dublin and other parts of the country from Glenties and Ardara.“It is also vital to Killybegs Harbour, our biggest asset in the south of the county,” he added.“Killybegs expect twelve cruise ships this year and one will stay overnight. One of our counties biggest tourism attractions Sliabh Liag will undoubtedly benefit from this news.”“It’s time that Pettigo and this area were put on the map and I am hopeful that works will probably commence in the near future and we look forward to attracting more tourists and more business investment in the coming years.” Substantial funding package for South Donegal road was last modified: February 2nd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ArdaraGlentiesKillybegsLaghySouth Donegal
Tags:#news#search#web#Yahoo Yahoo today announced a new feature for SearchMonkey that makes it very easy for site owners to embed flash videos, games, and documents directly on the Yahoo Search results page. The first sites to make use of this new feature are Hulu, Metacafe, and YouTube. Whenever a video from these sites appears in your search results, you can now watch it immediately in an embedded player right on the search results page.SearchMonkey supports a number of popular video players, including Hulu, YouTube, and MetaCafe, as well as documents from Scribd and Slideshare, and Playcrafter games. Embedding these documents in the search results is relatively easy, and Yahoo provides content owners with an extensive set of helpful documents to get them started. To embed a video, for example, a developer only needs to add two lines of code. Videos are already appearing in Yahoo’s search results now, and documents and games will become available in the next month or so. Google, of course, also shows thumbnails for YouTube clips in its search results, but clicking on these will take you to YouTube and won’t open the video player right on the page. Yahoo says that it wants to make it easier for developers to make use of SearchMonkey. SearchMonkey is an extremely powerful tool, but it can also be very hard to use for somebody who doesn’t have the technical knowledge required to create a SearchMonkey app. Thanks to this new feature, even novice webmasters will now be able to embed some of the most popular forms of content on Yahoo’s search results page. As we have said before, Yahoo continues to develop new and innovative ways to enhance its search, but so far, this hasn’t made too much of a dent in Google’s market share. Breaking Google’s momentum will be very hard for any player in the search engine market, but if anything, Yahoo is clearly showing that it is not willing to throw in the towel just yet. frederic lardinois Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
Image from Sony’s e-book websiteAmazon announced the Kindle Wi-Fi, which has a 6″ display, will retail for $139 in August, making it the cheapest e-reader yet. The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that a lesser-known manufacturer is coming out with a 5″ screen e-reader for $99 later this year. Sony’s least-expensive e-reader, the 5″ screen Sony Reader Pocket Edition, was $149.99 at the time of this post.So does this mean Sony won’t lower the price of the Sony Reader anytime soon? It would seem so, but the company isn’t ready to box itself in.“Nothing to announce at this time regarding a price move,” said Leanne Drown of Racepoint Group, which represents Sony. “The quote reflects broader thinking around strategy moving forward.” Tags:#E-Books#NYT#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… adrianne jeffries We posted yesterday about the price war that’s currently raging between Barnes & Noble, Amazon and Sony, makers of some of the top-selling e-readers in the U.S. Today a public relations representative sent us a statement on behalf of Sony that suggests the company may be pulling out of the race to the bottom.“Pricing is one consideration in the dedicated reading device marketplace, but Sony won’t sacrifice the quality and design we’re bringing book lovers to lay claim to the cheapest eReader,” said Phil Lubell, VP of digital reading at Sony Electronics. “Our global customers expect to get the best digital book reading experience and we’re concentrated on delivering that by investing in Sony’s award-winning design and original digital reading enhancements, such as eBook library borrowing and the only full touch screen on the market.” 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
