Bringing Guyana into disgrace

first_imgDear Editor,I do not often respond to articles of other writers but it is expedient that I respond to two articles written recently. These are The Peeper and the other by Lincoln Lewis. Of the two writers, The Peeper was somewhat subtle in his assessment of the Kadir matter, unlike Lewis who was his usual shameless self in full support of evil and evil regime actions.The matter before us is the “honouring” of the former parliamentarian Abdul Kadir by the PNC-led coalition in the hallowed House of Parliament.  This salute to a convicted criminal comes ten months after his death in prison for a terrorist plot to blow up the JFK Airport. There are audio tapes to prove that this man is guilty of plotting to blow up the airport at rush-hour traffic, causing mass casualties to persons using the said facility. Kadir was found guilty by way of investigation under the Terrorist Act of the USA and sentenced to life imprisonment where he later died in incarceration.Now, to acclaim this man as a “hero” for his contribution to the State called Guyana or, to put it in Lincoln’s words, “normal” for the National Assembly to give recognition to deceased MPs is shamefully ludicrous. I say shamefully ludicrous because Lincoln is simply dressing up a terrorist by a new name in the same way he and his comrades are calling corruption by a new name. If Lincoln wants to play the fool, he can, but do not encapsulate my country, my people, in such an asinine move. We would never be part of that.If he and his PNC comrades want to congratulate, acclaim, or whatever the term they might want to call it, then do so at Congress Place, but not in The National Assembly. What was done in Parliament last Friday will go down as an acclamation of “The People of Guyana” when in truth and fact, it is the PNC that is making that resolution. This move must be condemned by all right-thinking persons.The point I am making is that these writers are under the deceitful and conceited notion that a person that did not carry out an act cannot be considered guilty. Well, they are ever so wrong, you cannot wait for a terrorist to carry out an act then call him a terrorist, the fact is his evil schemes can prove that he is a terrorist. Their foolish interpretation is a “thief is only a thief when he is caught”. This is utter trash and Lincoln and others are peddling that form of foolishness to a civilised world.  Or, greater still, try telling the Sri Lankan people that foolishness that these plotters who caused mass killings over there were not terrorists. Subtlety and the ability to go undetected is the means on which terrorism thrives, so this nonsense peddled by Lincoln and friends is outrageous, to say the least.So, the point is established that the PNC wants the world to know that they are supporters of terrorism, only this time bringing the hallowed name of our country into its disgraceful scheme.He is a convicted terrorist there is no doubt about that.Respectfully,Neil   Adamslast_img read more

QPR boss unsure over Remy’s future

first_imgQPR boss Harry Redknapp says he has no idea whether Loic Remy is likely to join Newcastle on a permanent basis.Signed by the R’s from Marseille for £8m a year ago, Remy has scored 10 goals in 18 league appearances since joining the Magpies on a season-long loan.There has been speculation over whether Newcastle will agree a deal to buy him, while Arsenal are also reported to be interested in the French striker.Redknapp said: “I honestly don’t know what the deal is there. The chairman [Tony Fernandes] and [chief executive] Philip Beard did the loan deal.“I don’t know what the situation is, I just know he’s done exactly what I expected him to, which is to score goals. He can score goals anywhere in the Premier League.”Redknapp has made it clear he would happily sell Remy if QPR received a big-money bid.See also:QPR boss would be happy to sell RemyFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Sure it’s a bit glossy, but what synthetic wig isn’t?.Great deal for such a low price. My only concern is that it sheds a tiiiiny bit and the edges are a bit too curled on the sides. It was a lot darker than i thought but it sits well in my own hair. Great for when you want to change your hair style without the hassle of going to the hairdressers. The quality is much better than i expected for the price and it stays in place. Comments from buyers“Surprisingly nice and realistic ., Very nice for the price!, but it can easily be darkened with colouring mousse from VO5” Quite a warm brown tone which doesn’t really match my hair but it’s perfect for a fancy dress.

Excellent, have been complimented on it a few times, its a bit shiny but doesnt look fake, great for ppl like me who love to change their look without needing to cut their hair, would defo recommend. I bought this because i’ve been thinking about cutting my bangs for a while but i wasn’t sure how i was going to look, and this clip bangs worked like a charm, now that i see how they look on me i’m definitely gonna go for the real bangs lol. Although it’s not real hair and shines in the light, no one can tell whether it’s real or not if wearing at night. I was quite surprised with the good quality and even ordered the full length fringe (9 inches) and another blond one for my mum. Very recommend if you just want a a quick change in your style. Ordered for my 12 year old daughter who cannot decide whether or not to get her fringe cut back in. Great fun and could save some heartache. Really effective product, bit in the shiny side but a fun hair accessory. Matches my hair and sits wonderfully. Really good looks real but one of the clips was broke. Really good looks real but one of the clips was broke so had to send it back. Good value for money as some sites was charging a lot more money for same thing. I ordered this as i didn’t want to cut my hair and have a fringe but wanted the option for one. I’m having to send the item back as it’s such a dark reddy brown that it doesn’t match my hair colour at all. However, the hair itself was soft and silky. Felt like a good quality for the price. The clips were decent but would probably need replacing after some use. If it matched my hair colour, i would of kept it and worn it. It’s a shame i have such an odd colour.

Also, the join is quite obvious but i hide it with headbands and it looks perfectly fine. I’ve been receiving compliments all day and i might wear this as an everyday thing rather than committing to a permanent fringe. It feels and looks quite synthetic but no one has noticed – those who i tell its fake have said its obvious if you’re looking out for it. It was a lot darker than i thought but it sits well in my own hair. Good product and fits well with the colour of my natural hair.

Is Zebra Tech’s Zatar the “Facebook of Things?”

first_imgTags:#Internet of Things#IoT#shipping#Zatar#Zebra Technologies Related Posts Follow the Puck What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Donal Powercenter_img How Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Zebra Technologies showcased its emerging Internet of Things (IoT) technologies at the Innovation Labs World conference in Singapore this week.The Lincolnshire, Illinois company presented on its smart tag technology that allows advanced monitoring of shipped goods. As well, it discussed its Zatar platform, which is described as the “Facebook of Things.”Zebra’s smart tags are printed labels on thin plastic that function as a tiny computer equipped with IoT functionality no bigger than a five-cent coin.See also: Yap’s beacon just wants your shopping to be funActing like a mini-computer without the display, the smart tag is equipped with logic capability that allows it to be programmed to work with various sensors that can be attached. These can include sensors that track temperature, humidity, light exposure and motion speed.The tags are also equipped with antennas that transmit data on the product’s status via such modes as wi-fi, 3G or 4G depending on the infrastructure of the shipper.At a cost of 30 to 50 cents each, each smart tag can be affixed to goods that are being shipped in order for companies to track the status of products in transit.Zebra’s APAC Regional Product Manager Chia Lee Kiat gave an example of the smart tag being used to track food being shipped in refrigerated trucks.“If you had the Internet of Things enabled on the goods in the truck it could intelligently alert you when the inside of the truck reaches a certain temperature,” said Chia. “Let’s say the refrigeration breaks down then the smart tag could alert the driver to come back to the shipment hub to change the truck.”He says that a persistent problem with IoT devices is managing the issue of battery life.“If you deploy a lot of Internet of Things devices out there the amount of manpower to maintain them can become unsustainable,” he said. “This is a problem everyone is trying to solve.”Zebra using a small printed batteryBut Zebra’s new technology aims to address this problem by using a very small printed battery in its smart tag that can last up to a year.Besides the smart tags, Zebra also showcased the Zatar platform, which it describes as its IoT operating layer. Chia calls Zatar the “Facebook of Things” because of its ability to bring data together in an easily understood way.Hosted in the cloud by Amazon Web Services, Zatar aggregates data that is transmitted to it from IoT devices. The data is then processed with big data analytics so it can send users notifications.In the earlier example of refrigerated food shipments, Zatar can work in concert with the smart tags to allow shippers to monitor the environment of the goods in transit.“When all the data from the devices is transmitted to Zatar we can write intelligent web applications,” said Chia. “Using Zatar APIs on industry standard platform it can enable data to be reported in whatever format you wish.”last_img read more
