The Social Protection Ministry (MoSP) plans to upgrade the present pension payment system to electronic, but might just have to ditch the idea because most pensioners are against the upgrade.This was related to Guyana Times on Friday by a reliable source attached to the MoSP, who also informed that the decision to ditch the upgrade was arrived at after a survey had been conducted.According to the source, the survey was conducted about three months ago by the Telecommunications Ministry, in collaboration with the Guyana Post Office Corporation (GPOC).“Based on the reports from the survey, most of the pensioners did not want the upgrade,” the source informed.This newspaper was further informed that despite the findings from the survey, talks are ongoing for an upgrade to the old age pension system.The Government had first revealed its plan to introduce an electronic payment system for pensioners back in 2016. The intent of the system is to have pensioners uplift their monthly allocations through the local banks.Assistant Chief Probation and Social Services Officer Ricardo Banwarie had explained back then that, in the upgraded system, pensioners would sign on the coupon booklet and access their cash. The pensioners’ information would be entered into the database for the GPOC to keep record of pensioners in the system.“Added to that, we will be having the agents, for persons who are shut-ins, persons who are not capable of going to the Post Office to uplift their pensions. We will be able to have the names of the persons who are going to be authorised to uplift the pension on behalf of the pensioner in our data base,” Banwarie explained.He clarified that this new system was intended not to scrap the coupon booklet system, but to run parallel with it. Banwarie added that if a pensioner has to relocate, he or she must inform the Post Office.Then Social Protection Minister, Volda Lawrence, had told the National Assembly in 2016 that the new electronic payment system would be implemented in 2017.
Head coach Ally Bushiri believes that the victory over Gor has boosted their morale and will be in a better position to challenge Sharks for a place in the final of the tournament in their debut year.“I have seen how Sharks play and they are a very good team. But, in this competition, there is no underdog. Before, it was thought we were underdogs and people talked so many bad things but we have proved we can make it. No one will now underrate us,” the tactician stated.“I respect every team in this competition and I will go into any match knowing that I am facing a tough team,” he added.Mbao FC players celebrate after dumping defending champions Gor Mahia out of the 2019 Sportpesa Super Cup. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluMbao who are placed fifth in the Tanzanian Vodacom Premier League came from a goal down to level scores against Gor on Wednesday before finishing the job in the shoot-oit.Bushuri has revealed that he had a strict pre-match tactical plan that he says his players executed to the latter. His plan was simple, deny Gor time on the ball and defend with numbers.“Tactical discipline helped us. When you are playing against such a big team with exposure and experience, you can’t keep playing attacking football. We wanted to possess and keep muc of the ball and the hit on the counter when we have the right moment,” the tactician oted.He added; “We prepared well for them. We knew we are playing against of the giants in East African football and we had to prepare psychologically and physically. That preparation really helped us. I am proud of the players and their performance.”Mbao FC players line up before their SportPesa Cup first round match against Gor Mahia at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on January 24, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluOn whether his side can go all the way to the final and get the coveted trophy and a chance to play English Premier League side Everton in July, Bushiri is not leaving anything to chance.“In football anything can happen. This was a good start for my boys to beat Gor Mahia and build their confidence. We go into the semis knowing that we have beaten the defending champions and giants in East African football,” the tactician stated.Mbao who reached the final of the domestic cup here in Tanzania last season are in some decent form having lost once over their last five league assignments, winning two and drawing a similar number.Their only loss was against Keshi La Kujenga Taifa (JKT) on Sunday where they went down by a solitary goal.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Mbao players line up tensed during their penalty shoot-out against Gor Mahia in the SportPesa Cup first round match at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on January 24, 2018.

SAN SALVADOR — El Salvador has vowed to arrest 17 retired soldiers accused of killing six Jesuit priests and two women in 1989.The announcement came two days after a Spanish judge sent a new request to international police agency Interpol demanding their arrest.“We consider compliance with international arrest warrants to be mandatory, and we must proceed with immediate implementation by the Salvadoran authorities,” Salvador’s human rights ombudsman David Morales said late Wednesday.In 2011, the former soldiers evaded a Spanish order for their arrest by taking refuge in military barracks in San Salvador.They also secured a ruling from El Salvador’s Supreme Court saying they were protected by an amnesty that pardoned the atrocities committed during the 1980-1992 civil war.See also: Remembering the Jesuits: Seeking justice in El Salvador after a quarter-century A rose garden planted at the site of the 1989 murders by the school’s gardener, Obdulio Lozano, husband of Julia Elba Ramos. Photo by Joeff DavisBut this time, Morales urged the High Court to “proceed immediately to ensure the arrest of the accused.”Spanish High Court Judge Eloy Velasco has reissued the orders for the arrest of the former soldiers.They include Col. Inocente Montano, a former vice minister of public safety who is serving a 21-month sentence in the United States for immigration fraud.Morales urged the United States to allow his extradition to Spain.He also called on the military to “abstain” from blocking the arrest of the former soldiers.Five of the priests killed in November 1989 were Spanish and one was Salvadoran. The soldiers also killed the priests’ housekeeper and her daughter.

TV viewing time among people aged 16 to 24 dropped 7% year-on-year in 2015, though television still remains “by far the most popular form of video” for this age group, according to Thinkbox.The marketing body for commercial TV in the UK said that 16-24s watched an average of 2 hours, 24 minutes a day of TV in 2015 – just 10 minutes of which was watched on devices other than the TV.However, TV now only accounts for 57.5% of people in this age group’s total video viewing time, which averaged out at 3 hours and 25 minutes per day, according to the research.Those aged 16-24 also watched more than twice as much broadcaster VoD, YouTube and SVoD content compared to the average UK TV viewer.“Younger people are spending more time watching TV and other forms of video online thanks to screens like tablets and smartphones; 38% of 16-24s’ video viewing is on devices compared with 20% for all individuals,” said Thinkbox.Overall, the average TV viewer in the UK watched a total of 3 hours, 51 minutes of TV a day in 2015, 1% less than in 2014 but 5% more than in 2005, said the research.YouTube has grown as a proportion of total video in the last year, accounting for 4.4% in 2015 compared to 3.5% in 2014. Viewing of subscription video-on-demand services like Netflix and Amazon Prime also grew to 4% of total video in 2015, up from 2.3% in 2014.“These new figures show that TV dominates the video world for all age groups,” said Thinkbox CEO Lindsey Clay.“Today’s young people watch on-demand forms of video more than the generations before that didn’t grow up with them. This makes sense as they do not tend to have control of the TV set and so turn to their personal screens to watch what they want.“What is remarkable is that in the last decade, when so many new technologies and services have arrived that could have disrupted TV, TV viewing has remained so dominant.”
Michael ShaneBloomberg has upped its managing editor of Bloomberg Digital, Michael Shane, to the new role of global head of digital innovation.Shane will remain based in New York but will spend time in each region looking at new opportunities to grow audience, engagement, and revenue – focusing on six months to two-years or more into the future.According to a memo sent to staff by Bloomberg’s global head of digital, Scott Havens, Shane will also continue to partner with and work across many diverse teams – including editorial, product, engineering and sales – where he will help drive a “more aggressive slate of global innovation”.“Michael’s remit will also include business model and commercial innovation and he’ll have his keen eye on disruptive threats and opportunities that our industry poses,” said Havens.Shane joined Bloomberg in 2014, prior to which he worked at Vox Media, where he was part of the team that drove the growth of tech site The Verge.
The organisers of MIPCOM have reported 14,000 attendees for this year’s event, with 4,900 of those buyers, and 1,500 of the acquisition execs working for digital and SVOD service.Reed Midem said the kids-focused MIPJunior event, which ran on the weekend before MIPCOM, had a record 1,600 attendees, compared with the 1,400 reported last year. There was a 10% uptick in kids buyer numbers, with 630 in town.The 2016 numbers are up year-on-year, with Reed reporting 13,700 last year and 4,800 buyers, 1,300 of whom were from digital services. The 2015 total was the same as 2014, meaning MIPCOM had its best-attended market for several years.At the main MIPCOM event, there were 2,000 companies exhibiting. Japan was the country of honour and there were 500 execs from Japanese companies in town as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sent a video address to delegates.Also from Japan, Sony Corporation President and CEO Kazuo Hirai gave the opening keynote.On the ground the heightened security efforts were visible, with mounted police and heavily-armed soldiers on patrol, as well as increased bag and security checks upon entrance.The local public were also invited in for two of the drama screenings; Red Arrow’s Mata Hari and 20th Century Fox Television Distribution’sThe Rocky Horror Picture Show. This has been an excellent edition of MIPCOM,” said Reed MIDEM’s Laurine Garaude. “Through the central theme of New Television we have showcased technical innovation, discussed how to reach out to younger audiences who consume entertainment when, where and how they want and brought together traditional television leaders with newer online companies.This year has seen a combination of plentiful deal-making, celebration, exchange of knowledge and keynotes from major industry leaders.”
Michael LangDiscovery Networks International has upped Michael Lang, its UK-based corporate development and digital chief and the former CEO of movie studio Miramax, to president, international development, digital and Discovery Nordics.Lang, who will report to Discovery Networks International president and CEO JB Perrette in his new role, will be responsible for leading the overall business of the Nordic region consisting of Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.Since joining Discovery in April, Lang has worked on digital initiatives including the recently-announced joint venture with Major League Baseball Advanced Media to launch BAMTech Europe, which will provide distribution platforms for sports, news and entertainment clients including Discovery’s own Eurosport Digital.Discovery is among the top three broadcasters in the Nordic territories through its ownership of TV Norge and Kanal 5 as well as its international brands. Discovery said that the region would also be key to its sports ambitions in Europe, particularly following its acquisition of rights to the Olympic Games from 2018.In his capacity as DNI’s Nordic chief, Lang will take over some of the responsibilities previously held by Dee Forbes, whose role as president and managing director of Northern Europe was split after her departure, with Susanna Dinnage taking over as president and managing director in the UK and Ireland, and Benelux being headed up by Alco De Jong under DNI’s CEEMEA division, headed by Kasia Kieli.Forbes left Discovery in April to take over as the first female director-general of Irish public broadcaster RTÉ.Lang will continue to head up DNI’s corporate development and digital efforts outside the US, in which capacity he will report to Bruce Campbell, chief development, distribution and legal officer.“In a little over six months, Mike has delivered tremendous value to our business, such as our ground-breaking BAMTech Europe partnership with Major League Baseball Advanced Media. He is a visionary and strategic leader, who will build on these strengths and unlock new opportunities for our Nordic business,” said David Zaslav, president and CEO, Discovery Communications.“I have known Mike a long time, and he has always demonstrated a unique blend of operational expertise, business development and transformative thinking. Expanding Mike’s role to lead the Nordics business will help us to further secure long-term growth with the help of the highly experienced Nordic management team led by Harald Stromme and Christian Kemp,” said Perrette.
The scene in Strabane following the bomb atack earlier this weekA 31-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the attempted murder of police officers in Strabane last week.It follows an incident on Tuesday when a device exploded. It was a roadside bomb with a command wire attached.The 31-year-old man was arrested in Strabane on Saturday but details of his arrest have only just been released. ShareTweet Detectives from the PSNI’s Terrorist Investigation Unit have been given additional time to question a 20-year-old man.He was arrested in Newtownstewart in connection with the bombing.Both men are currently being held at the serious crime suite at Musgrave PSNI station in Belfast.The PSNI said it was “incredibly lucky” that no-one was killed in the incident. Parts of the town were cordoned off as a result of the security alert, and there was no access to the town via Liskey Road.Forensic teams spent days examining the scene after a command wire to the device was found.SECOND MAN ARRESTED OVER MURDER BID ON POLICE OFFICERS was last modified: March 26th, 2017 by John2John2 Tags: LISKEY ROADPSNISECOND MAN ARRESTED OVER MURDER BID ON POLICE OFFICERSTERRORIST INVESTIGATION UNITTOWNSEND STREET
