Tweah Encourages Gov’t Officials to Collectively Own Census Exercise

first_imgFinance Minister and LISGIS Chairman, Samuel D. Tweah, Jr.— As LISGIS, Partners Sign 2021 NPHC DocumentFinance and Development Planning Minister and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Liberia Institute of Statistics and Geo-Information Services (LISGIS), Samuel D. Tweah, Jr., has encouraged government officials and institutions to collectively own the upcoming 2021 National Population and Housing Census (NPHC) process.Minister Tweah said it is important that the census is collectively owned because it will provide updated data set critical for national development and helps re-premise the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development on those data.He emphasized that the 2021 NPHC is particularly relevant as the government moves to what he terms as “more data-centric governance in which policies and decisions will be based on more reliable data.”Tweah, however, praised the 2008 NPHC upon which the PAPD is premised as a great census that set the country on the trajectory of development by providing relevant statistics for development planning.He made the statement on Tuesday, October 8, 2019, at the signing of the 2021 National Population Housing Census Project Document between the Government of Liberia and partners in Monrovia. The Tuesday’s signing officially commences the 2021 NPHC process, according to Tweah.Tweah remarked that though the exercise is behind schedule, it was belated for good reasons.  He said the delay was aimed at ensuring that the census is done right, especially in areas of financing, programming, and digitization to ensure it delivers optimum improvements over the previous census. Minister Tweah said, “the digital census once completed will best in the history of the country.”Tweah said that the government has allocated under the Private Sector Investment Program of the FY2019/20 National Budget US$2 million as part of the government’s contributions to the conduct of the census.  He said the government disbursed US$1 million during the last fiscal year for the exercise.Tweah expressed profound appreciation to development partners including Sweden, the UNFPA, World Bank among others, for their contributions to the census process.  He, however, added that the government is still looking forward to receiving more support from partners to ensure the successful holding of the census.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Shakespeare tells Leicester to end season on a high after sealing PL safety

first_img1 Craig Shakespeare congratulates goalscorer Jamie Vardy following Saturday’s win over Watford Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare hailed the Foxes’ successful survival bid after Premier League safety was assured on Saturday. Wilfred Ndidi, Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton scored to seal a 3-0 victory against Watford and lift the Foxes into the top ten. They preserve their top-flight status with three games left while Shakespeare has won seven of his 10 league games since replacing Claudio Ranieri.The defending champions flirted with relegation and Ranieri was sacked when they were a point above the bottom three, but Shakespeare saluted their recovery effort.He said: “It’s one we can look at now, the whole club, and be very pleased we have managed to secure Premier League survival.“The result was always going to be important. There hasn’t been any points target and we just want to finish as high as possible. “To do that you have to beat the opposition. We have three games left – two at the King Power and one away – and I want to finish on a high and I’m sure the supporters want us to finish on a high.“I’m really pleased with the result. I’ve spoken on many occasions about the importance of the first goal, and with our home record and their away one it was always going to be important.”Ndidi broke the first-half deadlock when he fired in after Watford failed to deal with a corner before Mahrez marked his 100th Premier League appearance with his 10th goal of the season to make it 2-0. Albrighton wrapped it up with a breakaway third in injury time and Leicester have now won five straight home games in the league.Mahrez was unhappy to be substituted in last week’s 1-0 win at West Brom but Shakespeare praised his response.“I’m very pleased. In all the conversations I’ve had with Riyad he is very self-critical,” said the manager. “He wants to score more goals and thinks he should score more goals. It’s pleasing he has turned that talk into action.”last_img read more

Comet Ocean Theory Debunked

first_img(Visited 80 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Data from the Rosetta mission debunk the notion that comets brought Earth’s ocean water.  Now they’re hoping asteroids could have.The news media seem disappointed that comets are apparently ruled out as sources of water for Earth’s oceans.  Some are looking to asteroids—dry as they are—as a source.Rosetta results: Comets ‘did not bring water to Earth’ (BBC News); “Scientists have dealt a blow to the theory that most water on Earth came from comets.”#RosettaWatch: Comet water is not like Earth’s (New Scientist); “The comet’s water has around three times as much deuterium as water on Earth, the researchers found.”Rosetta Spacecraft Suggests Asteroids, Not Comets, Birthed Earth’s Oceans (National Geographic); Ice on comet 67P displays chemistry unlike seawater, the spacecraft circling overhead reveals.Mystery of where Earth’s water came from deepens (PhysOrg); “The mystery of where Earth’s water came from got murkier Wednesday when some astronomers essentially eliminated one of the chief suspects: comets.”Most of Earth’s Water Came from Asteroids, Not Comets (Charles Q. Choi on; “Today’s asteroids have very little water — that’s clear,” Altwegg added. “But that was probably not always the case. During the Late Heavy Bombardment 3.8 billion years ago, at that time, asteroids could have had much more water than they could now.”Because the early Earth probably lost most of its atmosphere when the moon formed (via an impact, according to popular theory), many planetary scientists have looked to comets, with all their volatiles, as possible delivery storks to birth the oceans.  It was known to be a problem that the deuterium ratios didn’t match, but perhaps that was due to sampling error.  Now, the Rosetta orbiter shows that the ratio is even worse than thought.But could dry asteroids replace them as water balloons? (see 11/03/09).  That seems even less likely, unless one imagines that they “could” have had more water in an unobservable period of the past.  Why, though, would asteroids’ deuterium ratios be any different from those in comets?Whatever happened, evolutionists are sure that comets and asteroids and other “impactors” could have brought something better: the building blocks of life.Giant impacts, planet formation and the search for life elsewhere (PhysOrg)Asteroid impacts may have formed life’s building blocks (Science Magazine)The further removed from empirical testing, the easier it is to speculate without fear of falsification.Here’s another case of “wrong again” in planetary science.  The secularists should be weeping over this falsification of their decades-long speculation, not trying to paper it over with even more speculation.  They have no shame.  Do materialists know how the solar system formed, with the blue-jewel of Earth blessed with water?  Short answer: No.last_img read more

SAP to Launch Google Wave Competitor

first_imgCognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… SAP is preparing to launch a potential rival to Google Wave. The application, code-named Constellation, is described as a “virtual war room” where co-workers can collaborate in real-time with information aggregated from different data sources.The cloud-based tool is now in private beta with the code name 12Sprints. The application is being developed by SAP’s Business Objects division. Constellation demonstrates once again how much effort is being placed on cloud-based collaboration platforms that pull in disparate data sources, stitched together into one lightweight environment. What’s unique is how these environments are almost separate from the legacy IT infrastructure that at times looks almost antiquated compared to its web-based counterparts in the cloud.That’s the opportunity Google sees with Google Wave, as do other competitors such as PBWorks, MindTouch and a number of other companies looking to bask in the shiny lights of the collaborative universe.According to IDG, which received a demo of the technology, Constellation works best with five to thirty users. There will be the capability to publish to a wider audience through wikis, Sharepoint and other platforms.SAP is also working on an on-premise application, but the initial focus is definitely on the cloud. Users will be able to access their enterprise data by tunneling into the app. For example, buying decisions can be more collaborative as purchasing data can be viewed by a group who can then discuss and make decisions.Applications like what we see with Constellation illustrate how important it is becoming for the enterprise to become more transparent with its information. Email is a data trap. But voice calls can be the same way. Platforms like Constellation open information to a far larger community. As part of its offering, SAP will create an application marketplace where developers, for instance, can sell the integrations that they create. Again, SAP’s web-based approach sounds very much like an API integration strategy. SAP maintains they are talking with Google Wave and are eager to see how the products work together.The question will become how SAP’s Constellation will enable developers to pull in all the pieces and how accessible it will be for the average business user.No pricing has been set for Constellation. A free version is planned. Constellation is expected to launch in the first half of next year. alex williams Related Posts IT + Project Management: A Love Affaircenter_img 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Tags:#enterprise#news#Products last_img read more
