EYEWITNESS Ideals…

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedEYEWITNESS: Massing…February 5, 2018In “EYEWITNESS”EYEWITNESS: Gutless…October 23, 2018In “EYEWITNESS”EYEWITNESS: Tragedy…June 14, 2018In “EYEWITNESS” …and power dealsFor a fella who has had to’ve completed some courses in history, President Granger seems to not understand the importance of going to original sources for his facts. Take the case on the PNC’s rigging from 1968, when his hero, Burnham, set the ball rolling by using the overseas vote to give himself an absolute majority that allowed him to dump the UF. Even if he’d been living in a cave since that time, surely he’d have seen the BBC’s investigation — broadcast interminably on TV — showing horses placidly munching grass in pastures that had produced oodles of votes for the PNC!Or more germanely, has he never bothered to read the US Declassified Files that give chapter and verse on Burnham’s fiddling with the ballot? OK…so he wasn’t at Camp Ayanganna when soldiers were substituting the ’73 ballots, but surely the grapevine would’ve alerted him that something fishy was going on!!  Or what about the Observers’ team that said the 1980 elections were “more crooked than barbed wire”??!! Is it a matter of “They have their perception and I have mine?”Anyhow, asked bluntly whether he would rig elections, since he’d vowed to continue in Burnham’s footsteps, Granger said, “I am not aware that rigged elections (were) an ideal of Forbes Burnham”. But he admitted he admires the late President Burnham for the ideas that he “implanted” in the PNCR. Now, isn’t this another case of hair splitting on a distinction without a difference??What were Burnham’s “ideals”?? Burnham’s explicitly stated he was a follower of Machiavelli, and the ideals the latter expounded in “The Prince” on a leader’s position on power were his mantras. The most important rule was: the leader must disjuncture his political actions from morality, and do whatever it takes to retain power! “By any means necessary” was ironically Burnham’s cry as well as Rodney’s!! To keep power for Burnham and to remove Burnham from power for Rodney!! Rigging would’ve been the least objectionable of Machiavelli’s approved actions, which included murder and mayhem. Burnham, of course, also practised the latter.Machiavelli also advised leaders that while they should ACT immorally to retain power, they should PRETEND to be virtuous. Granger, of course, has honed this skill to a “T”, so folks think butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth!! He’s obeyed Machiavelli’s exhortations even better than Burnham, and he should take a bow for keeping his vow! Rigging’s a cert!!If you’re surprised about Granger’s actions on sugar, here’s Machiavelli’s advice: “Never do any enemy a small injury, for they are like a snake which is half beaten, and it will strike back the first chance it gets.”…versus the factsIn addition to raising the “straw-man” of claiming rigging wasn’t an “ideal” of Burnham — when we all know it was a specific application of the ideal to “keep power by any means necessary” — Granger claimed, “I have never rigged an election in my life”!! But not because he doesn’t like to “fact check” means we have to follow suit. What does the (googleable) record say about Granger and electoral rigging.The very first hit declared that at the July 2014 PNC elections for party leader, when Granger was opposed by ex-PNC General Secretary Aubrey Norton, the latter accused the former of just that – electoral rigging!! And Norton knows about these matters!!The day before the elections, Norton’s handed a list of eligible PNC members; but lo and behold, on election day, a new list is circulated that omits most of the three busloads of members from Linden!! Norton, Sharma, Kissoon and Greenidge protest, and Norton withdraws from the elections in disgust.Taking Machiavelli’s advice, two protesters were bought out by Granger, while two were banished!!…on the right thing?Okay, he might’ve closed his eyes when he overlooked the secret “bonus” account at BoG…but at least Goolsarran is doing his mea culpa by championing higher royalties for our oil.Better late than never. read more

Microsoft améliore le caractère aléatoire de son Ballot Screen

first_imgMicrosoft améliore le caractère aléatoire de son Ballot ScreenEn réponse aux critiques qui remettaient en cause le caractère aléatoire de son Ballot Screen, Microsoft a finalement amélioré son interface de choix de navigateurs internet.Le Ballot Screen a été créé par Microsoft car Windows ne proposait, dans son ancienne version, que son propre navigateur Internet : Internet Explorer (IE). Une situation longuement critiquée, car IE est déjà nettement plus diffusé que les autres : il se situe à la première place mondiale, devant Mozilla Firefox, son concurrent direct et Google Chrome, récemment arrivé sur le marché.Ce Ballot Screen a été créé afin d’augmenter la concurrence entre les différents navigateurs, y compris les moins utilisés comme Opera ou Safari. L’interface, diffusée en Europe via Windows Update, propose dans un ordre aléatoire les cinq navigateurs les plus utilisés en Europe, en l’occurrence Mozilla, IE, Chrome, Opera et Safari, ainsi que sept autres, moins connus (mais qui, toutefois, réclament plus de visibilité). Cependant, malgré cette apparente bonne volonté du géant de l’informatique, il semblerait que l’ordre d’apparition des navigateurs n’était pas aussi aléatoire que prévu. En effet, d’après une étude parue sur le site DSL.sk, Chrome se retrouvait trop souvent à la première ou à la troisième place (les places les plus enviables car en tête de liste et au centre de l’écran). Même s’il ne s’agit pas d’une mise en avant volontaire, le côté aléatoire du Ballot Screen a, à juste titre, été remis en cause.À lire aussiPour Steve Ballmer, Microsoft, il y a 4 fois plus de Windows Phone vendus en 2012 qu’en 2011Microsoft a donc remédié à cette situation, selon les dires de Rob Weir, employé chez IBM. De plus, selon un porte-parole de Microsoft, l’algorithme créé pour effectuer ces affichages aléatoires a été amélioré. Les réels changements survenus grâce à ce Ballot Screen ne sont pas encore connus, mais d’après Opera Software, depuis son lancement, son navigateur est trois fois plus téléchargé qu’auparavant.Le 9 mars 2010 à 16:38 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Hazard I will try to score in the next game

first_imgEden Hazard already has his sights set on the next game following Chelsea’s shock 1-0 home defeat to Leicester City on SaturdayJamie Vardy’s 51st-minute goal proved to be the difference as Chelsea fell to their first home defeat of the season and their third in six league games.During the match, both Hazard and Marcos Alonso did the bar as Chelsea were unable to convert their dominance into goals at Stamford Bridge.“I think I can do better but that is football, sometimes yes, sometimes not,” Hazard told the club website. “I will try to score in the next game.“We just missed the shot on the goal, that is it. We hit the woodwork twice, their goalkeeper made some great saves, we were unlucky, but I keep the positives in our heads and now we move forward and try to win game after game.”While unsurprised over Leicester’s win given the competitive nature of the English top-flight, the Belgian is now looking for a response from his teammates.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“We knew it before that in the Premier League there is no easy game,” Hazard said. Every game is hard and when you are unlucky you can lose.“They [Leicester] have the players. Vardy scored and he is a fantastic striker, their goalkeeper is a fantastic goalkeeper so they know what to do.“We should do better but at the end they have three points and we have zero. We just need to look forward.“We lost against Wolverhampton and we responded in a good way [by beating Man City] so we know what to do.”Chelsea will next travel to Watford for a Boxing Day match.last_img read more

Breaking India to play World Cup final instead of New Zealand Four

first_imgThe Indian team has eventually, reached the finalTwitterIn a shocking development that could shake the ongoing ICC 2019 World Cup to its core, four players of the New Zealand team have rebelled against their own side and are expected to join the Indian team. This means that the strength of the Kiwi squad comes down to 11 – the minimum number of players needed to compete in a cricket match – and one more defection to the Men in Blue would make the Kiwis incapable of having the requisite number of players to compete in the World Cup final.In that scenario, the team which they defeated in the semis, India, are likely to take their place in the final and play England for the trophy. The New Zealand team’s high command has been left in a state of panic and fearing further defections, they have herded the remaining 11 players to a resort in North England, in hope of keeping them safe from BCCI’s agents who, the New Zealanders claim, are involved in horse-trading.Kane Williamson, the New Zealand captain and Ross Taylor, their senior-most players were away from the team with their families but are rushing back to the team’s resort to keep their house in order. New Zealand defeated India in the first semi-finalTwitter/Cricket World CupA spokesperson of the New Zealand has openly accused the Indian team and BCCI for indulging in horse-trading and luring away their players by tempting them with big IPL contracts. “Ever since we reached the final, the Indian board has been trying to buy our players and are offering them highly lucrative IPL contracts. They want to reduce the number of our squad to below 11 so that we are unable to play in the final and they take our place,” the spokesperson stated.The Indian team management has refuted these charges and have blamed the troubles of New Zealand on their own lack of performance. “We have nothing to do with these defections. It is an outcome of the dysfunctional situation in the New Zealand squad. The players known that their team is incapable of providing a good and stable challenge to England, hence they are leaving the squad out of discontent.”However, the four rebel players – Tim Southee, Colin Munro, Tom Blundell and Ish Sodhi – were seen quitting their team hotel and going to Indian team’s hotel in a chartered bus belonging to a company that is partially owned by a BCCI office-bearer. This, the Black Caps say, is a clinching proof of Indian team’s involvement in the whole drama. The concerned BCCI official has said that buses belonging to this company can be chartered by anyone and the rebels have paid for its service. Virat Kohli was unhappy about getting eliminated from the World CupGetty imagesIt is a well-known fact that the Indian team was very unhappy at being eliminated from the World Cup despite being the best side in league stage. Their complaint was enunciated by captain Virat Kohli. “This is an outrageous situation that has been foisted upon the cricket world by the opportunistic Kiwis. We, the side at the top of the points table are eliminated from the World Cup by losing just one match while the team that is not even second or third but fourth in the points table became the finalist. While we lost just one match in the entire league stage, they lost three in a row.”The mandate was clearly for us to play in the final but New Zealand disrespected it by sneaking into the final. Only we can provide the right kind of challenge to England in the final,” Kohli was reported as saying.There are rumours circulating in London that a couple of other players are ready to defect as well. This will bring down the strength of the squad to 9 and will make the New Zealanders incapable of playing the final. Tim Southee is leading the pack of rebelsThe New Zealand team management are trying to placate the four rebel cricketers by offering them plum positions in the team. Apparently, Southee, the senior-most bowler in the squad, is being lured back with the offer of getting to bowl with the new ball. Similarly, Munro is being tempted back with the opening slot. Blundell and Sodhi will replace Tom Latham and Mitchell Santner if they come back, as per the sources. So far, all four players have refused to accept these offers and come back into the New Zealand fold.Williamson alleged that Southee, offended at being overlooked in favour of Matt Henry, has also been offered the Rs 8 crore IPL contract that was given to Jaydev Unadkat last season by Rajasthan Royals. Southee, on his part, denied this claim that he is after an IPL contract and said that what inspired him and the other three players was the strong and dynamic leadership of Virat Kohli.The charge regarding IPL contract has also been rejected by BCCI. “Why should we offer such contracts to New Zealand players when they themselves are leaving the sinking ship? Look at their captain! He is such a soft-spoken and unassuming guy. Compare him to our captain Kohli. It is the leadership of Virat Kohli that has attracted all of them towards us,” the BCCI spokesperson claimed.Cricket analyst are expressing their anguish at these developments. “Even if these players come back, what’s the guarantee that we won’t have a rebellion again? If these people are given the places they want, then others would also make demands of prime slots in the playing XI?” Sanjay Manjrekar wondered. The World Cup crisis is only getting worse.(This article is a satirical piece)last_img read more

He also said he would love to be a Cardinal his en

first_imgHe also said he would love to be a Cardinal his entire career.“That’s the ultimate goal,” he said. “But I understand the business side of things, so whatever happens, I’m going to make sure that I’m enjoying it and living it up as long as I can.” Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell reacts after a sack against the Seattle Seahawks in the first half of an NFL football game, Saturday, Dec. 24, 2016, in Seattle. (AP Photo/John Froschauer) The 2008 second-round pick is coming off a five-year contract that ended up being worth $55 million, and though at times over the last couple seasons he seemed to draw the ire of head coach Bruce Arians, for the most part, he was worth every penny.Campbell made his first two Pro Bowls in 2014 and 2015, and this past season extended his franchise record for seasons with at least six sacks by a defensive lineman to seven as well as moved into second on the franchise’s all-time sacks list at 56.5.Whether Campbell is to continue his career as a Cardinal or depart for the Broncos (or any other team) remains to be seen. He has been listed as one of the top 10 free agents on the market by ESPN’s John Clayton as well as NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal, and in 2016 posted the best season among anyone in the Cardinals’ defensive front seven, according to ProFootballFocus.Kiszla understands that a player like Campbell will not come cheap.It’s always about the money in the NFL, and if the largest mountain of cash conceivable is what Campbell wants most from what figures to be his last big contract, then he will have to go play somewhere other than Denver. But could Campbell be lured by the appeal of playing alongside superstar Von Miller, the chance to come home to Colorado and the opportunity to scratch an itch left unscratched when the Cardinals lost to Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLIII?  Campbell and Derek Wolfe on the same defensive line might look pretty, pretty good.If the Cardinals don’t want him back, he will have no shortage of suitors. But for what it’s worth, back in December, Campbell said it’s more about leaving a legacy than making money for him. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Could Calais Campbell be heading home?The long-time Cardinal who is set to become an unrestricted free agent has expressed a strong desire to continue his career in Arizona, but if he doesn’t, a good fit for the defensive lineman could be the Denver Broncos.Campbell, who was born in Denver, is the player Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla says the Broncos should target if they part with star DeMarcus Ware.Campbell is the pride of South High School. He stands 6-foot-8 and weighs 300 pounds, but it’s his smile and heart that make the biggest impression.
