Is anybody listening/taking corrective action?

Posted on by

first_imgDear Editor,My good friend and colleague Mr E B John has been painstakingly pointing out the litany of deficiencies within the several branches of the Civil and Public Services of our country. His latest includes a frightening list of maladies in the Public Health Services (ref. his letter in sections of the media). Akin to this has been reports of malpractices leading to severe inconveniences, punishment, discomforts and possibly deaths in public health institutions, as well as other forms of poor public services.The silence from the responsible ‘authorities’ — governmental, public personnel, and political aspirants — has been deafening, and the obvious lack of corrective action begs a multitude of questions as to who really cares about the populace, whose votes are constantly being courted and whose patience must be at breaking point. Can we please see some corrective action, or at least hear some consolation?Sincerely,Nowrang Persaudlast_img read more

Cheaper broadband on the way

Posted on by

first_img24 October 2007The information communication technology (ICT) sector is an important contributor to the growth and development of South Africa’s economy, but high broadband costs and limited internet access have hampered the country’s participation in the global economy, says Public Enterprises Minister Alec Erwin.Addressing local businesspeople at the Ugu District Municipality in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday, Erwin said the ICT sector was also an important part of the Accelerated and Shared Growth Initiative for South Africa (Asgi-SA) due to its potential for creating jobs.Erwin said that a study undertaken by the government in 2005 found that South Africa lagged behind its international counterparts in areas of information and telecommunications service penetration, as well at the rate at which new technologies were adopted.Erwin added that broadband penetration in the country was also lower and cost significantly more in relation to international benchmarks, and that the problem had to be addressed.“If nothing is done about this, our country will get left behind, and we may miss out on key investment opportunities which could further accelerate economic growth,” he said.Broadband Infraco BillErwin told delegates he was pleased that the National Assembly had passed the Infraco Broadband Bill, which creates a new company out of telecommunication infrastructure previously owned by Transnet and Eskom, and allows the government to leverage communications infrastructure for economic growth.“Broadband Infraco is an intervention that aims to address the cost of broadband by making infrastructure in the national backbone and international connectivity available at cost,” he said. “Ubiquitous, affordable broadband access should no longer be seen as the privilege of a few, but a basic right for all South Africans.”He said such an investment was unlikely to have been made by the private sector and, as such, it was up to the state to “address a glaring market failure” and bring broadband to the country’s under-developed and under-serviced areas.Erwin pointed out that areas such as the Ugu district, which have low ICT penetration, have the most potential to benefit from the establishment of an entity such as Infraco.The Ugu district is situated 20km south of Durban. It stretches from Scottburgh in the north to Port Edward in the south and 150km inland.ICT would provide for immense possibilities for education, training, skills development, job-creation, basic service delivery, and broad-based black economic empowerment (BEE), especially among youngsters in the region, the minister said.He added that development of the ICT sector in the Ugu district would impact positively on the agriculture and tourism sector, which are currently the key industries for growth and development in the region.“This is why we have decided that parts of the undersea cable will be constructed on this coast, in this area which was declared a presidential poverty nodal point in 2001, and requires assistance to accelerate skills development, job creation, and broader participation by all its inhabitants in accelerating economic growth and development.“To retain skilled labour in the region, and limiting the migration of its educated workforce to the bigger cities by developing the ICT sector, is crucial as it will contribute to its economic development.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Ohio State focuses on improving after 39point win

Posted on by

OSU redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) runs through the Rutgers defense toward the end zone during an Oct. 18 game at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 56-17.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorThe question for Ohio State heading into its matchup with Rutgers was simple: Will the momentum still be there?A quick 14-0 start for the No. 13 Buckeyes (5-1, 2-0) showed they still had a spark despite two weeks off. In a total team effort, OSU led the Scarlet Knights (5-2, 1-2) in nearly every significant statistical category — save penalties and time of possession — but its coach said there’s still work to be done.“It’s time to, first of all, develop depth,” Urban Meyer said after his team’s 56-17 win. “We could go on and on about the mistakes that were made today. But enjoy the win tonight, go see your families, do what you gotta do and come back ready to go.”For the Buckeyes, the time to “come back ready to go” will be Saturday when they are set to face Penn State on the road. The last time OSU faced-off with the Nittany Lions, the Scarlet and Gray came away with a 63-14 win at home. That 2013 win came at Ohio Stadium, but the last time OSU traveled to State College, Pa., the result was comparable. OSU beat Penn State, 35-23, on Oct. 27, 2012, before last season’s shellacking. On top of recent success against their upcoming opponents, the Buckeyes are on a historic streak this season against all takers.Even with any room for improvement the coaching staff might see, the 2014 Buckeyes have already carved out a spot in the OSU record books, specifically when it comes to offensive production. The team posted 50-plus points for the fourth straight game — a school record — and it gained 500 yards or more in each of those games, which is tied for the program’s best.Production of that nature would be a good sign for every team, but at least one OSU assistant said he wants to keep focusing on ways to improve instead of talking about what the Buckeyes have done lately. Co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman said he’s not ready to make a judgment on where OSU stands, but added he hopes to have a clearer picture as the Big Ten schedule heats up.“Obviously the scoreboard and the play-by-play or stats say that we’re playing pretty well, but as a coach you always try to find the things that you can get better at,” Herman said after the game. “I don’t know how well we’re playing.”Meyer said it will be important for the Buckeyes to continue focusing on improvement rather than touting recent success, something he said he feels the team is able to do.“The good thing is that I don’t feel like there’s a complacent attitude,” Meyer said. “Complacency is awful in this business and with the players, because when you watch the film, we could actually have played a lot better in certain situations.”In order to find the spots where OSU could have performed better against the Scarlet Knights, it might be key to look beyond the box score.The Buckeyes totaled 31 first downs on offense while holding Rutgers to a three of 13 performance on third down on defense. OSU also outgained the opposition 585 to 345 and won the turnover battle, 3-1.Much of that success on both sides of the ball came early in the game for the Buckeyes, which led to a 35-7 advantage at the half.“Our focus is always to start fast and get things going,” redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett said after the game. “I think we executed better than in past weeks, but we can still eliminate some mistakes. I put some of that on myself.”Barrett’s own mistakes didn’t come until he had already nearly hit double digits in pass attempts, as he completed his first nine throws of the game. But after Barrett ran for two scores and threw for another in the first 10:46 of the third quarter, he and the Buckeye offense stalled.From that point on, OSU didn’t post another point and recorded just one gain of more than 14 yards.To an extent, the Buckeyes’ defense mirrored the fast start and slow finish of their offensive counterparts. Before addressing that less-than-stellar second half, Meyer praised the defense’s overall performance against a team he said the Buckeyes respected going in.“Our defense, you credit that, you can take the first half that’s a credit to our defense,” Meyer said. “They took a team that threw 400 plus yards against our rivals and really played well, creating turnovers once again and getting the ball to the offense rather quickly.”From a scoring standpoint, the Buckeyes’ matchup with Rutgers was tied for their second-best defensive outing of the season. Sophomore safety Vonn Bell credited that success to every player on the defense being “all in” on what it is trying to achieve.“You can see the progression of our players and see us getting takeaways and scoring,” Bell said after the game. “It’s very impressive this young group can understand what the coaches are telling us.”But Meyer stressed that — despite bright spots — the defense still didn’t have the start-to-finish effort he would like to see, especially when some less experienced players got a chance to make a statement late.“We gave up some runs, and when a two gets in the game there can’t be that big of a drop off,” he said of the second-string defense’s performance in the game. “And right now we all saw what happened, there’s a significant drop off when our twos got in there.”Co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell said the coaching staff tries to communicate to the backups that they need to treat their playing time the same as if they were starters.“We try to talk to those guys, ‘Hey, don’t consider yourself a two,’” Fickell said. “‘You want to be a one-B.’ That means there’s not a big drop off between the one-A and the one-B.”Even though the slow finishes to the game on both sides of the ball didn’t affect the outcome of the contest, Fickell said the Buckeyes have to make sure they stay hungry rather than settling — even after a 39-point win.“We’re never satisfied with where we are,” Fickell said. “And that’s the thing that we think that … going into what we were doing, we’ve got to be able to finish things.”Whatever adjustments or improvements the Buckeyes can make are set to be showcased after a week of practice. OSU is scheduled to take on Penn State on Saturday in State College, Pa. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. read more
