Gender, Social Inclusion Policy to be implemented by year end

first_imgSocial Protection Minister Amna Ally on Tuesday announced that the Government is working to ensure that a National Gender and Social Inclusion Policy can be implemented before year end. This policy is intended tackle negative economic, cultural and social practices that hampers equality.“The National Gender and Social Inclusion Policy is expected to be implemented during the second quarter of 2019 and will aim to mainstream gender issues into all sectors in order to eliminate all negative, economic, social and cultural practices that impede equality and equity,” the Minister explained.She added that the policy is likely to strengthen links between the Government, non-governmental organisations and even the private sector to mainstream gender equality in respective sectors. Moreover, the policy will develop, maintain and provide gender sensitive information and gender disaggregated data for the purpose of planning and implementing projects.While speaking on the progress, Guyana has made in relation to gender equality, the Minister pointed out that she was specifically pleased with the representation of women in Parliament, adding that Guyana is well ahead of many developed countries.According to her, 31.9 per cent of seats in the National Assembly is occupied by women.She also boasted that Guyana has met its target of eliminating gender disparity in primary and secondary education. This, she noted, was progress towards achieving universal primary education standards.Meanwhile, the Deputy Programme Manager for Gender and Development at the Caribbean Community (Caricom), Ann-Marie Williams explained that Tuesday’s forum was specifically designed to trace Guyana’s progress in Regional Gender Equality since 1975 through the United Nations Decade for Women.Within that decade, three major conferences were held; the first was hosted in 1975 in Mexico which bore fruit of two documents. The first was the declaration of Mexico and the equality of women and their contribution to development while the second encompassed the world plan of action for the implementation of the objectives of international women’s year.Later on in 1980, the second conference was hosted which was used to report on the previous event. The third conference was held in 1985 which celebrated the accomplishments of the decade of women. It also established an agenda to guide future efforts to promote equality for women, worldwide.Some 10 years later, the Beijing conference was hosted to accelerate the implementation of policies to ensure equality.She said, “We’re taking time out to look at the progress that have been made and also the challenges and we know that within the challenges lie opportunities so as we move towards 25 years of Beijing, it is time for us to literally take stock”.It was explained by her that next year will commemorate 25 years since the fourth World Conference was hosted and Guyana will be responsible for bringing together Governments and other stakeholders to consult on the priority areas that Guyana chose to work on after the Beijing conference.Williams told Guyana Times that a few of the areas Guyana was expected to work on were education, health and women in decision making among others.Guyana, like other countries, she said, will have to report on how they kept the promises they made for women and girls.last_img read more

DeGale given warning by opponent Davis

first_imgDyah Davis insists he is determined to shock James DeGale when they fight later this month.Harlesden’s Olympic gold medallist will be a strong favourite when he defends his WBC Silver super-middleweight title against the 32-year-old American at Glow, Bluewater, on 16 November.A victory would keep DeGale, 27, on course for a world title shot.But Davis, stopped in the 10th round by world champion Sakio Bika last year, says he has big ambitions of his own.“I most definitely want to show James what it’s like to be in the ring with a world-class opponent,” he said.“I was in with Sakio when I wasn’t in the best of form, I had an undisclosed injury that I didn’t share with anybody, but I took that fight feeling it was a great opportunity.“I was world ranked at number three and I went out there hoping to outclass my opponent and do well, but I re-aggravated the injury before I stepped out to the ring, so my confidence dropped.“But that is all behind me now, I have James DeGale in front of me and I’m looking to capitalise on this opportunity and come out victorious.“This is my opportunity to get back to world level This is a big stage.

Alexandra pupils benefit from Urban Scholar Bicycle project

first_imgQhubeka is part of @PowerOfBicycles.Together,we help people access education & economic opportunity with bicycles. pic.twitter.com/hBmojrNrre—Qhubeka™ (@Qhubeka) June 28,2016Almost 360 Alexandra high school pupils recently received bicycles donated by AutoTrader, the Qhubeka NGO and the City of Johannesburg as part of the Urban Scholar Bicycle (USB) programme. Dimension Data is also a financial partner in the project.The project was set up to provide schoolchildren with improved mobility and a safe method of transport to and from school, which, in turn, boosts their academic performance.Alexandra township was identified for bicycle distribution because of the transport corridor that exists between it and Sandton. Pupils at Kwabhekilanga Secondary School were chosen to receive the donated bicycles following the school’s high matric pass rates in 2014 and 2015.Abicycle changes lives by increasing the distance a person can travel, what they cancarry, where they can go & how fast they can get there—Qhubeka™ (@Qhubeka) June 29,2016Each pupil who receives a bicycle commits to its safe use and storage and makes a nominal financial contribution that is used by the school to fund the training of a bicycle mechanic. The bicycles are owned by the school until the beneficiaries complete their schooling and all contract terms are met. The bicycles can then be used by a new class of achievers the following year.Qhubeka is part of the programme run in South African by the non-profit, non- governmental organisation World Bicycle Relief. It is dedicated to advancing education, health and economic opportunities by providing simple, sustainable transport. Qhubeka has delivered more than 60 000 specially designed, locally assembled bicycles to people across South Africa since it was set up in 2005.Qhubeka and Dimension Data are sponsors of the South African road and track cycling team and partners in developing the sport among the youth.The Qhubeka 5000In July, Qhubeka will hold its 5000 charity drive. Riders, both novice and professional, are urged to ride a distance that will contribute to the group’s #BicyclesChangeLives campaign. For every kilometre covered, sponsors will contribute to funding 5 000 bicycles for pupils around South Africa. The drive will be held on 15 and 16 July, and will coincide with Team Dimension Data’s participation in the 2016 Tour de France.Source: Qhubekalast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast September 30, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We put together two sunny, dry and very warm days here to start off the week. After a soggy weekend in parts of the eastern corn belt (particularly north), we are going to see mother nature shift the evaporation machine into high gear over the next 2 days. We see sunshine and strong south flow combining to take temps to well above normal levels today and tomorrow. Wednesday we continue to see the sunshine and warm air in the central and southern parts of Ohio, but we can see a few more clouds developing in the afternoon up north, and that may take just a bit off our temperature top end. We have to keep our eyes out for a few scattered showers in far northern areas overnight Wednesday night through Thursday, but generally we think the biggest threat stay farther north. For now, we will say there is shower potential from US 20 northward, more so in NW Ohio than in the east. Partly to mostly sunny skies remain over the rest of the state for Thursday.We are sunny and cooler for Friday, with colder air sagging southward out of the Great Lakes. Temps can be somewhat chilly Friday morning, but there is no risk…we repeat…no risk of frost. The closest frost comes is into central Michigan.Sun will be followed by increasing clouds on Saturday, and that may lead to some late afternoon and evening scattered showers. However, there is better rain potential for Sunday with showers and thunderstorms over more of the state. Still, the heaviest potential is northeast. WE can see .3″-1.2″ with coverage at 80%. Monday will have clouds giving way to sun, but some rain can still hold on in far southern parts of Ohio, at least through the morning. We are fully dry to finish the 10 day period.10 day rain totalsThe extended 11-16 day window is wetter, with at least 2 and perhaps 3 threats of rain. Thursday the 10th we have rain bringing .25″-1.25″ over 80% of the state. Then on Saturday the 12th we can pick up another .25″-1.25″ from I-70 south, while northern areas miss out. Scattered showers return on the 15th, but only will give up to .25″ or less.Temperatures will be very warm the next 2 days, but will be closer to normal from late this week through the middle of October. Remember, though, that normal temps are falling as we move through October.last_img read more

Quora Blocks Startup Search Engines

first_imgGrowing Phone Scams: 5 Tips To Avoid Why You Love Online Quizzes The popular startup question and answer service Quora only allows the largest search engines to index its site. As Gabe Rivera of Techmeme pointed out yesterday, its robots.txt file explicitly grants Google, Bing, Blekko and other big players access, but excludes everyone else. If large sites had these restrictions back when Google was starting, it might never have succeeded and we’d still be stuck with Altavista. As more publishers move to this whitelist approach, are they stifling innovation?Gabriel Weinberg has been struggling to persuade Facebook to add his DuckDuckGo search engine to their list of approved crawlers, with no luck. Concerned about mining of their public profiles, last year Facebook started requiring search engines to sign a legal agreement covering the usage of their data. Unfortunately it seems like the process has turned into a barrier for fledgling search companies like Gabriel’s. Despite being happy to enter into that contract, he hasn’t heard back after several months. While he’s still able to show Facebook pages thanks to API partners like Bing, this leaves him unable to run his own algorithms to optimally rank and display the results. He’s frustrated by the trend towards whitelisting, pointing out that malicious or underhand scrapers ignore the policy file and says “Bad bots don’t respect it anyway”. In his view it’s a big drag on innovation too – “really you’re just hurting startups that may use your data in cool ways”.Both Quora and Facebook offer APIs to access their data, so why do startups need to crawl their sites? After all, web page scraping is often associated with unsavory scammers and copyright infringers. The real loss is that APIs only allow you to ask the questions that the interface designers have anticipated. For example, Gabriel was hoping to build directories listing the Facebook pages for local businesses by location and type, together with snippets of information about them, just as he does for other categories of sites on the web. There’s no way to gather that information through the Facebook API, so without crawling access he’s unable to implement that feature.As traditional search companies struggle to pull relevant results from an increasing deluge of low-quality content, we need innovative startups to pioneer new approaches. Without the openness that made it possible for Google to grow, the next big thing in search may never happen.Photo by David Goehring Related Posts pete wardencenter_img How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? 7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Tags:#Analysis#hack last_img read more

GPS and Losing Your Sense of Direction

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now Most of us can no longer find our way to the places that we go to without using a GPS. We’ve become totally reliant on our smartphones to help guide us from where we are to where are going. GPS is an enormous improvement over a map, and it is a far better experience to hear the directions being spoken aloud.But, this comes with a cost. In leveraging the technology, we have become dependent on it. It’s so easy, and so good, that we rely on it, sometimes completely. In doing so, we have lost our sense of direction and the ability to find our way without using global positioning satellites.Now, a lot of people are working on trying to apply artificial intelligence to sales. Some of the solutions I have seen lately are attempting to provide guidance, a few of them literally providing the salesperson with the words to use in a live sales conversation, and others using a sort of Cyrano de Bergerac-like technique to allow the sales manager to provide the talk tracks to the rep through their headset in real time.While there is nothing wrong with teaching salespeople how to have good and effective sales conversations, doing so can’t come at the expense of them learning to understand how to have these conversations without relying on technology to do so—or worse, relying on someone to feed them their lines in real time. You only need two things to be a trusted advisor: trust and advice. Without the advice, without actually knowing things, it’s impossible to be a peer or a consultative salesperson.It isn’t enough to help salespeople by providing them the words and the talk tracks that help them have better sales conversations. That outcome is too transactional. The development of a sales professional requires that one also teach them how to understand their client’s business, to understand how to create value for those clients, and to develop the business acumen and situational knowledge that allows them to serve their clients—as well as create and win opportunities.last_img read more

OSU’s Offensive Line Poor Overall But Slowly Getting Better

first_imgWhile Oklahoma State’s offensive line has steadily progressed on the run-blocking front, there is still a lot of room to grow in one of the most important facets of the game.There’s no doubt that the most important player to the Cowboys’ success is Mason Rudolph. The record-setting junior has almost single-handedly turned this program around. He is 20-5 as a starter, but he’s been sacked at least once in every game this year. Taking care of him should be priority number one.Unfortunately, the Cowboys are currently 105th in the nation in sacks allowed, having given up 27 through ten games. That 2.7 per game is a step back from last season’s average of 2.46 and just marginally better than 2014’s abysmal 3.08.Let’s take a look at the Cowboys’ allowed sacks by year.allowedsacksFor six years the Cowboys ranked in the top three in the conference and top 15 in the country at protecting their QB. Since then the numbers are drastically worse.That should be no surprise to any of us. We’ve belabored that point over the last three years.What should surprise us is that the Cowboys aren’t making any marked improvement on this front. In fact, as mentioned above, the Cowboys are on pace to take a step backwards this year. Given how good the run game has been, this is somewhat surprising.I will say, the last few games have been better. OSU only allowed four sacks total against WVU, KSU and Tech in the last three outings. That’s a marked improvement from the first seven. It’s no mistake that two of the best yards-per-play outings of the Gundy era have come in the last two games.#okstate has averaged 9+ yards per play in just nine games in the Gundy era. Two have come in the last two weeks. pic.twitter.com/9x1JpzvJFL— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) November 14, 2016Sack numbers aren’t just about protecting your quarterback. They are about protecting drives. Possessions are like gold to a coaching staff. If you break down a football game by the numbers, there are a finite number of opportunities to score. Each time your quarterback is sacked you lose a down and put your drive “behind the chains” so to speak.You can gain or lose an edge with turnovers and big plays. But while that’s worked out for the Cowboys at times, those can’t be depended on. Doing so is playing with fire. See Texas Tech. That’s why I don’t get too bent out of shape when Mike Gundy plays a bit conservatively. He knows that for every Rudolph-to-Washington 82-yard connection there is the possibility for a pick-six or a some other horrifying event.The Cowboys end the season with two tough road games. They figure to be underdogs in both. Can their O-line take care of business, protect Rudolph better and give Mike Gundy a fighting chance against TCU and OU to win the Big 12? We’ll see.

Chalk Talk: Diverse Run Game, Improved Talent, Stomped Horned Frogs

first_imgThe Oklahoma State Cowboys had one of their best (if not the best) ground performances of the season against the TCU Horned Frogs in their 31-6 victory last Saturday.It has been a long time since the Pokes have been able to lean on the ground game, but the Cowboys did just that, and they averaged a stunning 7.4 yards per carry against one of the better defenses in the Big 12.So why has the run game improved? Well, it’s actually quite simple. Yes, the Xs and Os behind it are notable, but there’s only so much to analyze. The Cowboy coaching staff has put together an effective two-back run scheme. But the improvement at personnel has been the biggest reason for the team’s recent success on the ground.When OSU first introduced the Cowboy Back, the Cowboys frequently used a gap power scheme (man-to-man blocking, basically), but the problem was that the line couldn’t block it well. Additionally, with only one possible point of attack, the back was limited in where he could go.But now, the Cowboys have completely revamped the run game, and have turned to zone blocking to not only make it easier for the lineman but to also feature their talented backs.Just because a team is zone-heavy doesn’t mean that the run game is simple or predictable. Through the zone, the Cowboys used a number of different plays to keep the defense off-balanced.They used a strong-side zone:oz_strA zone to the weak side (which is a tendency breaker and often caught the defense by surprise):oz_wkAnd a lead draw play:lead_drawAdditionally, they ran a lead zone with split backs:os_oz_strAnd used a devastating wham play which, at one point in the fourth quarter, OSU used three times in a row for a total of 53 yards:wham_give_trucksAnd don’t forget that quarterback Mason Rudolph has been used more and more in the run game, specifically in the red zone and short-yardage situations (notice that the play below is the same as the play above with a read on the play-side end, i.e. was specifically called for Rudolph).wham_keep_tdAlthough this is a chalk talk article, it would be unfair to not give credit to the people who have made this possible. As we’ve seen in the past, coaches can scheme and strategize all they want, but if their players can’t execute, then it’s all for naught.This year, though, the offensive line has improved immensely. The running backs, and more specifically Justice Hill and Chris Carson, have thrived in the Cowboy run game as of late.Finally, the coaching staff has intelligently taken one base zone play and built a run offense off of it, and because the line really has only one or two plays to practice, they have been able to become a more than respectable zone run team.One or even two years ago, the Cowboys were lucky to surpass 100 yards on the ground. Now, things have clearly changed, and it appears like this ground attack won’t be regressing any time soon.

Roundtable: How do we Feel About the Mike Gundy Coaching Rumors?

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. The PFB team discussed our feelings on the coaching rumors surrounding Mike Gundy, our thoughts on what’s going on behind the scenes, and more.Boone (me): Why do you think his name popped up in coaching rumors?Cox (contributor): Because he wanted it to.Caleb (intern):  Wait, he’s still around?Sam (hoops guru): Money talks. Gundy Badger deserves a raise, even if this is an awful time to bring it up after Bedlam :grimacing:Cox: I think the constant frustration/passive-aggressive turmoil between he and T. Boone and Holder is just going to be something that we are all going to have to live with.Southwell (uniform expert): Gundy Hundy. Athletic directors want a winnerCox: Agreed. Makes sense financially, even if it doesn’t for fans/football/whatever. I think the timing with this Bedlam fiasco is just coincidental.Caleb: Also, who doesn’t want a coach willing to rock a mullet? Besides like Harvard and Yale and all them fancy-types. And they aren’t worth Gundy’s time anyways.Thomas (X’s and O’s): I think if bedlam didn’t go the way it did , his name wouldn’t have been thrown out so much.Caleb: I think he truly is one of the better coaches in the nation, but the “bedlam curse” is hanging over him and it’s probably annoying. He doesn’t necessarily have a problem (ok maybe he does), but it’s probably just more of a hastle than anything. If you can get buckets of cash elsewhere without annoyance…..Sam: I don’t believe Baylor ever had a legitimate shot at himBoone: This happens to a lot of coaches, though. Holgerson’s name popped up for the Houston job — then got an extension and raise several days later. Is he doing what coaches do to get a raise or is it something more?Thomas: Yeah sometimes I get the sense that he’s using it as leverageSam: I have no doubt Gundy is frustrated with Holder/Boone though.. and that played a partCox: I’m sure it’s to get a raise and to make a point.Caleb: It’s tough to say if it’s a bluff for a raise or true interest. I would say the jobs connected are the best indicators, so Baylor seems like a bluff, but something like Oregon or equivalent could be an issue if it were real#Sources say Holder is considering trading Gundy to Oregon for a return of the grey unisCox: it’s a win-win for him… why not talk to them? raise here or more money there.Caleb: @kylecox that’s a good point. I mean, what is his downside to talking to others? Is OSU going to call his bluff and fire their winningest coach ever? Over rumors of him talking to other schools? Really?Cox: he’s got all the dominos and has earned them.Boone: I just feel like its a 100 percent leverage play. The downside, to Caleb’s point, is that he could be fired. It wouldn’t be smart — but I think OSU is tired of him playing the game.Sam: Holder and T Boone aren’t in control and they hate it. Caleb is rightSouthwell: Boone: He hasn’t earned a right to act this way, at least IMO. Do you see Bob Stoops pushing OU’s hand in public every year? What about Nick Saban? Their pay is different, but I don’t think he’s above it. No one is untouchable.Thomas: I just want a coach who’s going to coach wth kahunesIs that too much to askCox: Not saying I agree with it. He could talk to 15 schools and it doesn’t get out unless he wants it to… I was speaking in terms that he is pretty much untouchable at OSU. If they fired him, it would not only be a huge mistake it would make them look ridiculous.Caleb: I think the atheltic department is probably very frustrated with his actions/attitude. I would guess they’ve been hesitant to even consider firing the golden child for years, but with the rising expectations of Cowboy fans and the growing list of quality coaches, as well as the solid footing the program is on as a whole now, I would think they are no longer considering him completely off-limits. Especialy if they think fans are frustrated with the bedlam recordBoone: One final question “to get you out of here on this” (shoutout K-Port): Would you be OK if Gundy moved on this offseason, either by termination or from walking away?Thomas: I would quickly get over itEspecially if we got monkenBut no way holder hires that fireball of a coach because he couldn’t control himBoone: To me: I think I would be OK with it. Depending on who we could get in his place. I am on the #Fuente2Stilly train if it were to happen.Sam: Depends on the replacement- if we get a Fedora, Fuente? I think we’d be just fine. I don’t want no scrubs.Caleb: Totally depends on who we could get. Quality coach comes in and it’s a lot easier to look to the future, but it’s a HUGE gamble for Holder. Like, Dwarfs-Travis -Ford-Extension gamble…Cox: It all depends on who comes in… Look at Texas. The grass is not always greener and it’s a lot harder to win in Stillwater than in Austin. Who really knows if any of those guys will do any better? Charlie Strong was the hottest coach in the country four years ago.Southwell: It would be a weird time to leave. He’s got a really good shot at going to the CFB Playoff next year. To do that for your alma mater is even better. Legendary status.So I don’t think I would be ok with that. I’d feel let down. I would get behind whoever replaces him, but I’d want Gundy over all of the other coaches mentioned.Cox: agreed. this part of coaching isn’t fun but he’s not the only coach that does it. I’m sure UNC fans don’t love Fedora’s name in everyone’s mouth.last_img read more
