CRMA facilitated over 1000 jobs for youths in 2017

first_img– 700 registered in 2018The Central Recruitment and Manpower Agency, under the auspices of the Ministry of Social Protection, registered some 2000 job-seekers drawn from Regions Two, Three, Four, Five, Six and Ten for 2017. One thousand of those registered were provided jobs.Most persons seeking jobs are between ages 15 and 35, Chief Recruitment and Manpower Officer Valarie Moore told the Department of Public Information (DPI). She said that for 2018 (January to March), some 700 persons registered for jobs, about 200 of which were placed in jobs.Moore explained that for January alone, the agency saw a total of 95 persons, while in February some 169 persons registered. These numbers, she said, do not include those that are already in the system awaiting job placement.“We have a term we call submission, which means sending someone to take part in interviews. And so sometimes that number will be more than the registration that we have, but we normally look at those persons in the system already,” Moore added.For those persons with two and three subjects at Caribbean Secondary Examination Council (CSEC) and little or no skills, Moore said the call centres usually take off those persons.Moore noted that they advise persons on where they can go to improve their qualifications and get assistance. They also share with job-seekers what are some of the benefits of obtaining a skill and/or academic qualifications.The agency also collaborates with the Board of Industrial Training (BIT), which provides training for unqualified individuals through the Government Technical Institute (GTI) and the Guyana School of Agriculture.However, she said that sometimes some of the youths do not need jobs, but need advice, or in some cases public assistance. Those persons are referred to the Woman of Worth (WOW) and the Sustainable Livelihood and Entrepreneurial Development (SLED) programmes under the Ministry of Social Protection.The Central Recruitment and Manpower Agency is a division of the Social Protection Ministry. It registers applicants for employment, taking specific note of their occupational qualifications, experiences, and desires. It evaluates, if necessary, their physical and vocational abilities. Its objective is to place individuals seeking jobs in suitable employment, while providing career guidance and counselling. The Agency was established by the Government of Guyana in October 1944.last_img read more

Dark Matter May Not Exist

first_imgAstrophysicists may be tiring of searching for things they know nothing about. The consequences could be revolutionary.The non-detection of dark matter and confusion about dark energy are taking their toll. Astrophysicists may have to bite the bullet and say that these mysterious entities don’t exist.Dark Energy Gets Weirder: Mysterious Force May Vary Over Time (Live Science). Dark energy is not dark matter, and vice versa; the two are related by the word “dark” and the fact that astrophysicists know nothing about either of them. The headline reminds one of saying, “ghosts are so weird, they might change shape over time.” Even so, is the theory of dark energy really helping?“Some scientists suggested that new physics might be needed to explain this discrepancy, including the possibility that dark energy is growing in strength,” Risaliti said. “Our new results agree with this suggestion.“International team of physicists continues search for new physics (Purdue University). Here’s another article that dabbles with “new physics” to explain our universes. The operative word in the following quote is “could” as if in the proverb, “If pigs had wings, they could fly.”“Some believe there’s a mediator that talks to dark matter particles. If that’s the case, and it couples to the Higgs, we might be able to see it in top quark physics,” he said. “We’ve only looked at a fraction of the data we’ve collected so far. There could still be something there.”Finding dark matter in the dark (University of Melbourne). Another team is going to spend lots of money and effort to look for dark matter impinging on fluid deep in a mine. All previous searches have failed. Is it the hope of a Nobel Prize that spurs the hunters? This is more an adventure story than a science article. Watch that “could” word again.Dark matter is the mysterious material that holds the Universe together, yet no one has seen it; or heard, smelled, tasted or touched it either.But that may soon change, and a laboratory 1000 metres below the ground in the Stawell gold mine halfway between Melbourne and Adelaide could be the epicentre of this discovery.Dark matter may not actually exist – and our alternative theory can be put to the test. (The Conversation). Juri Smirnov is betting on MOND (Modified Newtonian Dynamics), not dark matter, to explain the observations. Unfortunately, MOND theory is beset with problems of its own. As a result, Smirnov and colleagues have a modified MOND theory (modified-modified-Newtonian-dynamics) they want to test.We are watching a possible scientific revolution in the making. They will either eventually find these dark things within standard theory, or have to leave behind the standard view of one of the “hard sciences” (physics) at least at cosmic scales. The lesson is that scientific theories are always tentative. They can explain a lot, till anomalies crop up. Persistent anomalies can lead to revolutionary new ideas. What scientists think they know now, therefore, is always up for revision.(Visited 730 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Public works programme ‘creating jobs’

first_imgBetween April 2010 and March this year the programme created 89 689 jobs across 45 municipalities covering 417 wards throughout the country. Almost 310 000 work opportunities have been created through the government’s expanded public works programme (EPWP) since April, Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini said in Cape Town on Tuesday. 31 August 2011 The programme was aimed at helping municipalities to provide waste collection services, specifically where municipalities were unable to provide the service, Dlamini said. The programme was now being rolled out in 30 municipalities in the provinces. It had so far managed to create over 3 000 job opportunities for poor and vulnerable communities. Other initiatives included the waste management programme. In terms of the programme, communities received food vouchers for collecting waste and taking it to collection depots for weighing. The public works department, in partnership with the Independent Development Trust (IDT), was implementing the food for waste programme. The programme aimed to create job opportunities, fight hunger and poverty, promote a clean environment, and promote recycling, waste reduction, and re-use.center_img Phase two refocused resources to ensure expansion of further job opportunities in other programmes, such as community safety, mass participation in sport, Khari Gude mass literacy, school nutrition programmes, and the cemetery management programme. “These measures are indicative of the proactive strategic approach the cluster has taken by investing in labour intensive programmes to boost job creation,” she said. The vouchers were then redeemed for groceries at participating local outlets. Dlamini said the recent Cabinet lekgotla had identified the community works programme as one of the key job creation and service delivery improvement programmes. “To date, more than 308 000 work opportunities have been created since the beginning of the current fiscal year, with most of the work opportunities created in the infrastructure sector,” she said. Briefing the media as chair of the social protection and community development cluster of ministries, she said “impressive progress” was being made in implementing the second phase of the EPWP.

Shearer v Schama: ex-England striker refuses football lesson from historian

Harry the great.June 18, 2018 Share via Email Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Simon Schama (@simon_schama)blimey – prob not intended as such but vast cross vs crescent on Volgograd stadium pitch a bit um medievalJune 18, 2018 Alan Shearer (@alanshearer)You do know that I have played in these games right? https://t.co/dyzvsH9OlpJune 18, 2018 Topics In a clash nobody expected the World Cup to throw up, Alan Shearer locked horns on social media with historian Simon Schama on Monday night over England’s performance against Tunisia.“You do know that I have played in these games right?” was Shearer’s ultimate put-down after Schama had started explaining to him about England’s need for patience. Share on WhatsApp Simon Schama After the exchange between the striker and the historian, plenty of fans were asking Alan Shearer to air his views on topics such as the French Revolution, and one wit asked Schama if he had been nervous before his own international England debut.Shearer wasn’t the only member of the BBC’s presentation team for England’s game to get into a social media spat. Gary Lineker and Piers Morgan have been involved in a continuation of their regular feud, after Morgan’s judgment on the team’s performance.Responding to people who had been critical of England Lineker had tweeted: “Never ceases to amaze me how easy some folk think World Cup football is. Have you watched all the so called big teams? It ain’t that easy, especially against tough defensive opposition. I suppose those that are so critical haven’t been there, though.”Taking issue with Lineker’s description of the performance as “excellent”, Morgan offered his own: “I prefer a more honest critique: good first half, poor second half, lucky win. And may I remind you that we’ve both won the same number of international football tournaments.”Lineker, who referred to Morgan as “tubs” during the exchange, pointed to the fact he had won the most World Cup Golden Boots out of the pair. Morgan continued to tweet at Lineker while presenting Good Morning Britain on Tuesday, also posting a video addressed to Lineker of Morgan chatting to Geoff Hurst, who the former newspaper editor described as “a proper striker”.Lineker’s exuberance for the England performance was summed up perfectly in the tweet he sent when Kane netted the 90th-minute winner. Twitter “Everyone going on about how England should just enjoy the football and play loose massively underestimates the inevitable stomach-knotting teeth-gritting nervy wrench of the first game,” Schama had messaged Shearer, after the historian appeared to get frustrated with the way that BBC pundits were criticising England’s performance.Shearer scored 30 goals in 63 caps for England, and captained the team 34 times. He captained England at the 1998 World Cup, netting twice in England’s four matches.Schama was probably on safer ground when he observed that the pre-match flag display was rather more reminiscent of the era of the crusades than perhaps the organisers had intended.
