‘Contributions’ made by third force political parties (Part 2)

first_imgDear Editor,At the first Alliance For Change (AFC) International Convention which was held in October 2015, the majority of the members present agreed that the AFC had become a ‘rubber stamp’ of the People’s National Congress (PNC) dominated A Partnership for National Unity. This excerpt was taken from the minutes of that Convention: “At this point, Mr Tameshwar asked for a show of hands by all those who perceive that the AFC is being used by APNU as a ‘rubber stamp’. The majority of attendees at the first International Convention of the AFC raised their hands to indicate that they are of the opinion that AFC is being used as a rubber stamp by APNU officials.” Mr Ramjattan and other AFC leader vehemently denied this but the facts were there to support the ‘rubber stamp’ claims.Even the Working People’s Alliance (WPA) had earlier this year concluded that coalition politics in Guyana has failed to live up to expectations and Guyana is not benefiting at all. They cited non-consultation and usurping of all decision making at Cabinet level. The WPA should be applauded for this bold approach.On the other hand, it is now conclusive that the AFC will never confront the PNC’s decisions and it is simply a matter of self-preservation. The appointment of the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is such a glaring example. The AFC has also exposed its aversion to confront and speak out on many important issues such as the lop-sided Exxon contract, the D’Urban Park scam, the Sussex Street Drug Bond rip-off, the corrupt award of the drugs procurement by the Public Health Ministry, the dismissal of nearly 5000 sugar workers, the continuing uncertainty which pervades Guyana Sugar Corporation, the depletion of the reserves at the Bank of Guyana and the current state of depression of the economy. The AFC will never rock the boat or the ‘sirens’ will be lost!It is evident that the AFC has deserted its founding principles and our people will never trust another Third Force again. They have all betrayed Guyanese for 30 pieces of silver. But it is my wish that our country is not propelled back to the dark era of the PNC dictatorship but the current state of our economy strongly suggests that this is exactly the path we are heading.A final question: Will the longevity of the PNC once again be perpetuated by rigging? The unilateral appointment of the GECOM Chairman and the discriminatory racial employment at GECOM would suggest that. But AFC will just be a decoration on the wall to justify an APNU ‘victory’!Yours sincerely,Haseef YusufRDC Councillor– Region Sixlast_img read more

‘Hard Knocks’: Series has extra meaning for ex-Raider’s son

first_imgFrom Jon Gruden’s hilarious barbs to the bizarre antics of Antonio Brown, HBO’s “Hard Knocks: Training Camp With the Oakland Raiders” has delivered plenty of memorable moments through its first three episodes.But for Matt Montoya, a key production assistant with the show, the best experience by far came during the team’s alumni weekend featured in the series opener. It was an event attended by his father, former Raiders’ guard Max Montoya, and his mother, Patti. And, in his eyes, it was pure …last_img

500 Gb/s network trial a global first in SA

first_img2 August 2011Undersea cable company Seacom and US-based digital optical networking equipment supplier Infinera have achieved a global first by successfully trialling a 500 Gigabits per second transmission over Seacom’s newly built network between KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.“This event is a landmark achievement and a global first,” Seacom CEO Brian Herlihy said in a statement on Monday. “It also signals the international science research and development community that global projects such as the Square Kilometre Array are well within Africa’s reach.”Live demonstrationThe trial made use of five 100 Gigabit per second (100 Gb/s) channels of coherent optical transmission over a distance of 1 732 kilometres on Monday.The trial was run over and looped back across Seacom’s newly built 930-kilometre Dark Fibre Africa fibre route, which links the Seacom Mtunzini cable landing station on the coast of South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province to the Teraco data centre in Johannesburg.The live demonstration, news of which has generated huge excitement in the industry, was witnessed by members of the scientific, research and development community at Teraco’s data centre in Johannesburg.“The trial demonstrates Seacom’s commitment to increase the pace at which African networks are deploying cutting-edge telecommunications infrastructure technology to support Africa’s rise as a primary scientific and business destination,” said Herlihy.Photonic Integrated CircuitsThe trial used Infinera’s 500 Gb/s Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs), each of which integrates five 100 Gb/s coherent channels onto a single chip. The PICs were used for both transmitting and receiving the five 100 Gb/s signals during the trial.At the consumer level, the 500Gb/s PIC technology enables the download of 2 400 high-definition Blu-Ray movie files in 60 seconds, or supports the streaming of 320 000 simultaneous high definition video channels over a single fibre pair.Demand for large-capacity transmissionFibre optic transmission technologies have been developing considerably to satisfy demand for large-capacity digital transmission in public telecommunication networks worldwide.“With internet traffic growing at exponential rates, driven by video, cloud computing, and mobility, the 500G PIC technology is designed to support the required growth in network capacity, while reducing the per-bit cost, space, and power consumption,” said Infinera CEO Tom Fallon.“These attributes are in-line with Seacom’s vision to providing world-class infrastructure as African traffic continues to increase at record speeds.”SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
