Inheriting Power Plant Facility From GTG Was Disastrous To NAWEC Baba

first_imgBy Mamadou Dem Mr. Baba Fatajo, the Managing Director of NAWEC, yesterday disclosed to the ‘Janneh’ Commission that NAWEC’s taking over of the power plant facility at Brikama from Global Trading Group (GTG), was a disaster to the energy Company.Mr. Fatajo was summoned on various issues surrounding NAWEC but prior to his testimony, Counsel Bensouda applied to tender documents relating to NAWEC’s contract produced by the witness, to form part of the exhibits.According to Mr. Fatajo, he came in contact with Global Trading Group when the IPP was being installed at the Brikama Power Plant; that there was power outage which warranted Mr. Abdou Jobe and Tijan Bahum to be whisked away by the NIA to Mile II prisons.Fatajo said Mr. Bazzi invited the senior management of NAWEC for a meeting in his office at Standard Chartered House, where he told them that Bazzi had no hand in the power outage and advised them to be patriotic; that there would be zero-tolerance and whoever was found wanting, would face the consequence. He however said one of their members from NAWEC responded to him that no one could tell them to be patriotic because they did not have a second home like him.He confirmed that this meeting was held before the management contract; that it was in 2006 when the contract was completed and they knew that Mr. Bazzi was close to the former president and there was something was in the offing.Mr. Fatajo testified that the power purchase agreement with Global Trading Group (GTG), was to provide four generators but the guarantee was for 22 megawatts. It was put to him by Mrs Bensouda that Mr. Alagie Conteh said in his evidence that the price was that of used generators.In response, Fatajo told the Commission that the capacity charge was high, noting that the price of fuel kept changing; that they had half of the capacity available since the guarantee was for 22 megawatts, and that this was why they told them to respect the capacity charge.Fatajo further said the purpose would have been defeated if they could not provide the volume of electricity required; that the relationship between the Bazzi group and the former president was difficult to tell.According to him, the two generators before the contract was entered into, were unreliable and the maintenance was not adhered to; that GTG was more of a player and a referee at the same time.Mr. Fatajo added that they decided to have an assessment of the generators and they officially took over the operation of the plant in 2013; that there was a letter from the office of the former president asking them to suspend the capacity charge for two years; that there was an agreement between GTG and the former Government, to hand over to NAWEC, further stating that they took the entire plant. He told the Commission that on the 5th of November 2015, there was transfer of ownership.At this juncture, Mr. Fatajo disclosed to the Commission that taking over the GTG and the Power Plant facilities from the Bazzi group, was a disaster to NAWEC; that there were observations by NAWEC’s MD that the Company was at risk with the intervention of the former government.According to him, there was no corresponding measures to ensure that NAWEC was protected; that the Company became bankrupt, and other sister institutions like SSHFC became bankrupt, as they tried in assisting to maintain NAWEC’s operations.He adduced that this was a bad situation for the Company and that for NAWEC to be able to service the IPP, it should be able to generate income.At this juncture, Counsel Bensouda applied to tender the minutes of the negotiations between GTG and NAWEC for power generation and a letter dated 20th June 2012, for the handing over of the IPP at Brikama and other relevant documents as exhibits. The Energy Company boss disclosed that there was a Project Manager hired by GTG for the evaluation process and GTG bid for the contract and together with her associates (PCG).Mr. Fatajo further indicated that there was a total loan of $22,000,000 and that $17,000,000 was for the supply of fuel; that there was an executive directive that the contract should be given to GTG and PCG, when it was put to him by Commission Counsel that the bidding price was less than the contract sum. On Generator No. 9, he said it was in service since 2009-2010, stating that it had a major breakdown. He told the commission that Venezuela’s funds were partially used for the purchase of the said generator.At this juncture, Commissioner Saine urged him to work with his finance team and furnish them with all payments which were made by NAWEC to GTG among others, so that they could quantify the amount and know how disastrous it was. In response, Fatajo said the finance men at his office are working on it.Mr. Fatajo further testified that they were not directly involved at the beginning when SSHFC gave a loan to NAWEC to purchase the two generators for the electrification of West Coast Region; that the date for the contract which was signed with SSHFC, was on the 2nd of October 2007.At this juncture, Counsel Bensouda put to him that a sum of €4.3 million should have been transferred to GTG account, and he responded that GTG told them that they needed €1.3 million and later €1.8 million was paid for the provision of auxiliary equipment, which were part of a loan from SSHFC.He responded that he could not remember as to how the loan given to NAWEC by SSHFC, was going to be paid by NAWEC, noting that the loan is outstanding.Documents relating to the said loan were tendered and admitted as exhibit. Fatajo finally told the Commission that out of the two generators, one is operational while the other one is out of order.Sitting continues today.last_img read more

Archaeologists Discover 14400 YearOld Bread in Jordan

first_imgArchaeologists digging in Jordan’s Black Desert have discovered a piece of charred bread that is thought to have been baked 14,400 years ago. According to Haaretz, this exciting find suggests that humans were making bread from wild grains thousands of years before the so-called “agricultural revolution” in which grains were cultivated systematically. The find was discovered at a site named Shubayqa, once occupied by a group of hunter-gatherers known as the Natufians, 130 miles northeast of the Jordanian capital Amman.An international team published the findings of the dig in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in July last year, explaining that they had discovered a charred cracker that was found to have “bread like” properties.The Black Desert, eastern Jordan. Photo by Joe Roe CC BY SA 4.0According to Amaia Arranz Otaegui, part of the team that made the discovery, advanced analysis techniques revealed that it was consistent with other ancient flatbreads discovered in the Levant in the Roman period.AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsOver 20 fragments of this ancient bread were found in a fire pit in Shubayqa, along with the remains of other foodstuffs. It is believed that the bread was made using a technique that has essentially remained unchanged for millennia, combining flour and water to make a dough, which was then kneaded and baked over an open fire.The site of Shubayqa 1 showing Structure 1 and one of the fireplaces (the oldest one) where the bread-like remains were discovered. Photo by Amaia Arranz OtaeguiThe fire pit and the collective remains were all dated to 14,400 years ago, when the semi-sedentary Natufians dominated the Eastern Mediterranean.The bread found at Shubayqa is preserved as tiny, charred fragments, and so the team had to use state-of-the-art techniques in order to accurately identify it.According to Haaretz, they used advanced imaging techniques using scanning electron microscopy, which provided an extremely accurate reading of the composition of the sample. After close analysis, they were able to confirm that the sample was indeed analogous to our modern bread.Scanning electron microscope images of bread-like remains from Shubayqa 1 Photo by Amaia Arranz OtaeguiAccording to Haaretz, the team also found samples of barley, oats and wheat at the site. This is highly unusual, as these crops did not become domesticated until around 4,000 years later. It appears, therefore, that the Natufians made bread from wild grains that they foraged themselves.Although there is some evidence for plant cultivation in human societies going back 23,000 years, this should not be interpreted as proof of widespread agricultural practices.The cultivation of crops as a food supply occurred sporadically in Neolithic societies in the Levant, and it was not until 9500-8600 BC that agriculture became widespread.Remains of a wall of a Natufian house. Photo by האיל הניאוליתי CC BY SA 3.0Even in this period, according to Professor Tobias Richter who led the team at Shubayqa, crop cultivation did not provide the basis for the human diet, which would have been heavily supplemented with plants foraged from the wild. Wheat and barley were not systematically cultivated until much later.According to Haaretz, the archaeologists were able to determine whether the grains had been cultivated deliberately or foraged from the wild by close analysis of their composition. Grains that occur naturally rely on the elements to ensure distribution of their “spikelets” in order to reproduce. However, grains cultivated by humans develop differently, as humans manually shake the sheaves in order to ensure effective distribution.Over time, these strains of wheat become dependent on human cultivation, in a process known as domestication syndrome. Richter argues that the evidence found in the Levant suggests that the development of true agriculture, defined as systematic, settled development of the land for the production of food, took many thousands of years to develop, and involved considerable trial and error.There is no evidence of settled agriculture at Shubayqa, and the grains discovered in the food fragments were wild. This means that the find contains some of the earliest hard evidence for bread production using wild, foraged grains. A large stone mortar also found at the site is assumed to have been used for grinding the grains into flour.Mortars from Natufian Culture. Photo by Hanay CC BY-SA 3.0According to Richter, it is thought that the bread would have been very similar to the unleavened flatbreads identified at other Neolithic and later Roman sites in the region.Read another story from us: 2000-year-old preserved loaf of bread found in the ruins of PompeiiHe suggests that these early practices of cooking with wild grains may have inspired the Neolithic communities of the Levant to experiment with cultivating their own varieties, leading to some of the earliest farms in the region. This important find is, therefore, part of the wider story of the very earliest development of agricultural practices in ancient human society.last_img read more

Protecting Your System From Hackers

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 6 min read Change passwords often. Defy hackers by adding one upper case letter to your password. Install firewalls and antivirus software. Limit use of free e-mail accounts (Hotmail and Yahoo) by employees at work. Don’t download anything unless you know what it is and who sent it. Encrypt sensitive data. Don’t send financial information over the Internet unless you are sure it is secure. Think about using an “anonymizer” to hide your identity while visiting Web sites. (Check out www.anonymizer.com.) Read privacy policies, and don’t give sites the option to share your data with third parties or for marketing purposes. Be aware of widespread viruses, and take the time to download “patches” offered by software makers. Although security experts said Microsoft knew for months that its Windows NT or 2000 software was vulnerable to “Code Red,” it didn’t publicize the security patch until mid-June. Your computer network may have been spared by the recent Code Red virus, but don’t think because you’re small, you aren’t vulnerable to a crippling security breach or nasty virus. “This problem isn’t going away,” said Andy Faris, president, Americas, of Message Labs Inc. in Minneapolis. “The hackers are getting more malicious and more clever. Traditional security measures aren’t working anymore, so you have to step up your vigilance and improve security.”The current scourge, Sir Cam, has been assaulting e-mail systems for the past two weeks. United Kingdom-based Message Labs, which provides e-mail filtering services worldwide, has intercepted 10,000 Sir Cam messages per day being sent to its 500,000 subscribers, according to Faris. In most cases, several messages a day from different people appear to be messages sent by a friend needing “help.” The Sir Cam virus can delete files and forward confidential company information to unwitting recipients, Faris said.If you think these viruses are just nuisances, check out the damage estimates. Last year’s Valentine’s Love Letter virus caused an estimated $2.6 billion in losses in 72 hours, according to industry analysts. In 1999, the Love Bug virus infected networks, causing an estimated $10 billion in damage, while the Melissa virus cost another $393 million in 2001. The widespread Anna Kournikova virus also caused big, expensive headaches around the world.”I would suggest that all companies, big and small, do a thorough review of their security,” said Faris, whose company offers its e-mail filtering services for about $2.50 per user, per month with a one-year contract. If a mysterious hacker isn’t trying to shut down your Web site, a disgruntled former employee could be. Doing things as simple as changing system passwords frequently can prevent a major security breach.”If a business owner doesn’t take proactive steps to make sure their information is secured, it’s the equivalent of putting their secrets out on the front doorstep when they go home at night,” said Robert Lonadier, director of security strategies for the Hurwitz Group in Framingham, Massachusetts. “The typical hacker is a bored teenager with a modem and access to news groups. Data in transit (e-mail) and data at rest (company files, financial information and customer files) need to be protected in some manner; otherwise, the safe bet is that it will find its way into the wrong hands.”Lonadier said lax password security comes about as a result of sharing passwords or scribbling them on sticky notes and sticking them to computers or inside desk drawers. “It’s amazing how common sense gets ignored when it comes to security issues,” said Lonadier. He recommends that every business owner spend 15 minutes making a detailed list of critical information assets. Figure out who really needs access to specific information, then limit access to everyone else. Keep close tabs on who has access to financial and other confidential information. Think twice about e-mailing confidential documents and contracts. Faxing or mailing them to clients or customers is safer. “People get lulled into the convenience of the electronic medium without thinking through the implication of having (sensitive) documents travel through cyberspace,” said Lonadier.To immediately increase password security, Lonadier recommends including one upper-case letter in your password. This is a very simple and effective tool against hackers. “If you have the computer equivalent of locks on your doors and a ‘Club’ on your car, the casual hacker may be turned away,” he said.Another problem is the push to open your computer systems and Web site to your customers. If a legitimate customer is given a password to go online to check order status 24 hours a day, a hacker has an open door to dig deeper into your computer system. “With large numbers of computer systems being interconnected front end to back end, there is an opportunity for errors and vulnerability,” said Lonadier.Security experts warn against posting too much personal information about your executives on your Web site. If you tell the world your CIO has three kids, loves to jog and lives in San Jose, he or she is vulnerable to being contacted or threatened by a computer criminal.Experts say your confidential information is most vulnerable when you send it over the Internet in the form of e-mail. Currently, 10 million e-mail messages are sent around the world every day, and the number is expected to grow to 35 million messages a day in the next five years, according to Accenture, a high-tech consulting firm. “When you want to use the Internet for business purposes, it has flaws-it’s not a very secure channel,” said Jim Liski, COO of Atabok Inc. in Newton, Massachusetts. Atabok offers a variety of subscription-based e-mail protection services (the cost is about $40 a month), including encryption and a product that allows you to control use of the messages you send. “With our product, you can control whether you can print, forward or save a message,” said Liski. “You can also revoke a message that has been sent.” COMPUTER SECURITY TIPS Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Polling expert La Nacións decision to cancel poll sounds illogical

first_img Facebook Comments Sam Wang Via TwitterU.S. polling expert Sam Wang called it strange to hear that a leading newspaper in Costa Rica conducted a poll and didn’t publish the results because it was too close to Election Day. He said polls that run closest to the election are often more accurate and the most useful.Wang, who runs the Princeton Election Consortium, has a towering reputation as a poll analyst. In 2012, Wang accurately predicted the presidential results in all 50 U.S. states and in the 10 competitive Senate races. His track record with poll predictions dates back to the 2000s.His comments refer to La Nación’s decision to cancel its final presidential election survey, conducted by the polling firm UNIMER.The newspaper has expressed support for UNIMER’s methodology (although the firm has had some big misses in the past). Instead, Editor-in-Chief Yanancy Noguera said the decision was made because there appeared to be too many undecided voters, and the poll wouldn’t accurately reflect what will happen at the polls.The Tico Times contacted Wang, and explained the current controversy. Via email, Wang responded:My longtime experience is opinion polls most accurately reflect the eventual election outcome if they are conducted within the seven days before the election. It is strange to hear of a poll conducted, then not published. It is this poll that is the most useful one.Wang explained polls are key to analyzing what’s happening in an election. He likened ignoring a poll to “not looking at the thermometer when you feel cold.”Poll suppression in the United StatesThe incident is reminiscent of a recent U.S. controversy, where left-leaning polling firm Public Policy Polling (PPP) chose not to run a poll that showed two Democrats losing state elections in 2013.PPP didn’t reveal it had suppressed the poll until after the election – when Democrats had lost – proving the poll correct. The firm said it chose not to release the poll because they didn’t believe it was accurate, similar to the reasons La Nación gave in a Tuesday editorial.Political commentators jumped on PPP for suppressing the poll. That included statistical expert Nate Silver who called the move a “very bad and unscientific practice,” and he accused PPP of not publishing the poll because they didn’t like the results. During a heated back-and-forth with the polling company, Silver wrote: “we publish ALL results”.He added if you have any doubts, “express your cautions in your write-up of the poll. Don’t suppress the data.”That advice would seem appropriate for La Nación today. @ppppolls: Yes, so express your cautions in your write-up of the poll. Don’t suppress the data.— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) September 11, 2013center_img Related posts:Libertarian candidate Otto Guevara could become Costa Rica’s next president Araya campaign inflates latest poll numbers Evangelical editorial constituted ‘threat’ to free elections, says Costa Rica’s Supreme Elections Tribunal In last presidential elections, polls overestimated Libertarian Guevara’s support and underestimated PAC’slast_img read more

Final British Airways heritage livery arrives at Heathrow

first_imgFinal British Airways heritage livery arrives at HeathrowFinal British Airways heritage livery arrives at HeathrowThe fourth and final British Airways aircraft in a heritage livery has touched down at Heathrow this morning.  The Boeing 747 adorns the Negus design which was originally on the British Airways fleet from 1974-1980.The arrival of the aircraft rounds off a nostalgic few weeks for the aviation community. Enthusiasts around the world have already been treated to a British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) liveried Boeing 747, a British European Airways (BEA) Airbus 319 and a British Airways Landor 747, which have collectively flown to more than 30 destinations across the UK, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and North America.The special series of designs have been introduced to mark British Airways’ centenary, as the airline celebrates its past while looking to the future. Alongside the heritage liveries, all new aircraft entering the fleet, including the A350, will continue to receive today’s Chatham Dockyard design.The Negus-liveried 747-400, registration G-CIVB, entered the IAC paint bay at Dublin Airport earlier this month where it was painted with the first version of the Negus livery which adorned the British Airways fleet from 1974-1980, directly after the merger of BOAC and BEA and the formation of the airline that customers know today. The aircraft will head to Cape Town later today for its first commercial flight in its retro design.Alex Cruz, British Airways’ Chairman and CEO, said: “Reintroducing four heritage designs in to our fleet has been an incredibly nostalgic time for us and our customers, we’re impressed at how popular they’ve been.  In our centenary year it’s important that we celebrate our past, and we also have big plans to look to the future. I’m excited about what the rest of this year has in store.”When it initially flew, the Negus livery was the first to carry “British Airways” since 1939, when the original British Airways Limited merged with Imperial Airways to form BOAC. Interestingly, the Union Flag is not present on the side of the aircraft as, like the final BEA aircraft livery, the flag began to be fully celebrated on the aircraft’s tailfin instead.In its centenary year, British Airways is hosting a range of activities and events. The airline is hosting BA 2119 – a programme, which will lead the debate on the future of flying and explore the future of sustainable aviation fuels, the aviation careers of the future and the customer experience of the future.The airline will be working with expert partners to identify BA’s 100 Modern Britons; the people up and down the country who are currently shaping modern Britain, and of course, the year would not be complete without creating some special moments for customers – on and off board.The centenary activity is taking place alongside the airline’s current five-year £6.5bn investment for customers. This includes the installation of the best quality WiFi and power in every seat, fitting 128 long-haul aircraft with new interiors and taking delivery of 72 new aircraft. Earlier this week the airline also revealed its highly-anticipated new business class seat – ‘Club Suite’ – and confirmed it will arrive on the first of its A350 aircraft in July.Source = British Airwayslast_img read more

leader TTV Dhinakaran who scripted an emphatic win in the RK Nagar assembly bypoll has proved his main campaign line that he will be chosen by people to succeed ‘Amma’ (late chief minister Jayalalithaa) who represented the constituency twice The victory against all odds including loss of Two Leaves symbol and a slew of cases against him is being seen as a worrying development both for AIADMK and principal opposition DMK which finished third behind the ruling party After the revolt by Chief Minister K Palaniswamy Dhinakaran (his name is also spelt as Dinakaran) has vowed to unseat the regime accusing him of having betrayed the faith reposed in him by jailed party leader and his aunt VK Sasikala File image of sidelined AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran PTI The suave Dhinakaran was handpicked by Sasikala to lead the party when she went to the Parapana Agrahara Jail in Bengaluru to serve a four-year jail term in a disproportionate assets case in February this year Dhinakaran is not new to electoral politics He was elected to the Lok Sabha in 1999 from Periyakulam and to the Rajya Sabha in 2004 Known for his brilliant organisation skills he was a key player in party appointments albeit from behind the screens and during parleys with allies at the time of elections However his sudden emergence as party deputy general secretary slowly ruffled feathers and Palaniswamy teamed up with then rival leader and now Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam to form the main bloc of AIADMK which now has the Two-Leaves symbol In April-May last Dhinakaran went through a rough patch with the Delhi Police arresting him for allegedly trying to bribe Election Commission officials to get the ‘two leaves’ symbol Among others he also faces a FERA case Eighteen of his loyalist MLAs were disqualified by Tamil Nadu Assembly Speaker P Dhanapal months ago and a case in this regard is pending before the Madras High Court Post the merger of the factions led by Palaniswamy and now his deputy O Panneerselvam a general council meeting of AIADMK in September had annulled the appointment of Sasikala as the party general secretary and all subsequent appointments/removals made by her including that of Dhinakaran Unfazed 54-year old Dhinakaran who along with Sasikala had worked closely with Jayalalithaa for about three decades moved on confidently and continued to meet his supporters in all the districts Articulate outgoing and sociable Dhinakaran a former MP has been asserting that party cadres were with him and he was led by "Chinnamma Sasikala" a true successor to ‘Amma’ His appeal to vote for him was in simple plain-spoken everyday Tamil unlike the bombastic style of some leaders To their credit Dhinakaran and his followers were able to take the ‘pressure cooker symbol’ to the voters In about two decades he is the first independent candidate to be elected in Tamil Nadu and that too with such a huge margin scoring higher than that of Jayalalithaa in 2016 Assembly polls In that election Jayalalithaa had won by a margin of 39545 votes defeating DMK nominee Shimla Muthuchozhan While Jayalalithaa secured 97218 votes the DMK

would no longer need to walk out of the station premise to catch their pre-booked Ola cab The Pune Railway Station has established a dedicated stand inside the station premise where 10 Ola cabs will remain parked which passengers can book by approaching a booking kiosk This will also rid the fear among the cab drivers of a possible altercation with powerful autorickshaw union members inside the premise Officials with Pune Division of the Central Railway said the decision to set up a stand was taken as per the directives of Railway Board Similar stands have come up in other cities as well “As per the directives we had floated open tenders to set up a stand for 10 cabs Three firms had participated in the bidding process which was won by Ola Under the contract Ola will have permission to park up to 10 cabs at the stand inside the station premise and set up a kiosk from where they can be booked” said Krishnath Patil Senior Divisional Railway Manager (DCM) Pune Division The commuters are likely to welcome the move as until now drivers of mobile-based cab services were reluctant to enter the Pune Station premise as they were afraid that autorickshaw drivers may assault them as has happened in the past Patil said the move will bring relief to hundreds of passengers who chose app-based cabs for their intra-city transport “There’s no doubt that cab aggregators are in high demand for intra-city transport and Pune Station and surrounding areas are one of very busy and important destinations in the city Since there was no arrangement for these cabs to stand inside the station and they couldn’t possibly park on the roads outside the station it was causing inconvenience to passengers as well as service providers This move will being some degree of relief” said Patil There have been incidents of autorickshaw drivers threatening cab drivers against picking up commuters from traffic hubs in the city that leave the passenger with only two choices: submitting to the “overcharging autorickshaw drivers” or walking out of the premise and then boarding the cab Over last two years private cab service providers have gained considerable market share in Pune’s transport system The autorickshaw unions which are wary of cab services eating into their business have staged several strikes to oppose the cab aggregates The entry of Ola in the station premise means that Cool Cabs which was once a popular service between Pune and Mumbai has been moved out of the station premise The stand for Cool Cabs will now be used for Ola “They were given the choice of
