first_imgThe West African Examination Council’s (WAEC) Monrovia office announced yesterday that it will begin to administer this year’s WAEC exams to 12th graders across the country from Monday, June 27 to Friday, July 1.The head of the Monrovia office, John Y. Gayvolor Sr., had on previous occasions maintained that the tests will be administered as scheduled.“WAEC registers candidates for Schools and Private Examinations, while the School Examination is May/June, with the Private Candidates Examination being November and December. Private candidates are students who previously sat the test but failed to obtain the required average,” Gayvolor said. This year’s exam has been embroiled in uncertainty, coupled with the reported leak of exam papers leading to the rescheduling of the exams.Dele G. Gboto, WAEC Head of Test Administration, meanwhile, advised all registered 12th graders “to prepare themselves and go to the selected testing centers carrying with them pencils and pens only, but nothing else, especially electronic devices, as doing so will disqualify any candidate caught.”Accordingly, the Ministry of Education (MOE) in collaboration with WAEC said it is constrained to inform the public that the Liberia Senior High School Certificate Examination (LSHSCE) will also be administered from Monday, June 27 to Friday, July 1.The ministry said education stakeholders including parents, candidates, school authorities, and the public, are advised to adhere to the examination dates, which remain unchanged.WAEC, said Gboto, “is very confident of administering the exams from June 27 to July 1.”MOE has also notified all 12th graders that no school administration or candidate will be charged for the re-run of the exam.MOE further advised that “there will be no collection of flexibility fees; candidates should not be denied their WAEC identification card (ID) number for not paying project fees; candidates are encouraged to abide by all rules and regulations governing the exams.” The excitement of thousands of 12th graders died down recently when it was announced that the WAEC examination was cancelled, “because test materials had been stolen from their location at the Konola SDA high school campus.”Following the stunning disclosure, the MOE in collaboration with WAEC Monrovia office set the new dates for the exams from June 27 to July 1. The Liberia Senior High School Certificate Examination (LSHSCE) is administered to candidates who were not successful in their first sitting at the LSHSCE either in the May or the December examination, and private candidates who can demonstrate proof of completing the 12th grade curriculum as prescribed by the Ministry of Education. The actual date for the examination is communicated to the candidates through circular and public service announcements. Subjects to be offered for the examination are grouped into three categories, Core, General and Science Subjects.The Core (Compulsory) Subjects are: Subject CodeEnglish Language 101Mathematics 301The General Subjects comprise of:Economics 201Geography 202History 203Literature-in-English 204The Science Subjects comprise ofBiology 401Chemistry 402Physics 403Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgIt wasn’t that long ago that Yahoo stood accused of letting Flickr decay beyond repair. Today, under the guidance of new CEO Marissa Mayer, the company has given the oft maligned image-sharing community a major facelift. Yahoo’s announcement promises a Flickr that’s “more spectacular, much bigger, and one you can take anywhere.”  Introducing The GridThe most instantly noticeable change is an aesthetic one. Your photos have enlarged themselves to jaw dropping size and now dominate the screen. Taking a cue from Instagram, your home page is now an infinite scroll through your contacts’ recent photos.Your profile page has also gone the way of Pinterest and Windows 8, filling the page with a grid of images. Just like Facebook and Twitter, your profile page includes a background photo to offset your profile picture. I found that Flickr had already put one of my Favorites as my background image, a photo I didn’t even take myself. As it’s not credited, I certainly hope the photographer doesn’t take issue. Tags:#flickr#Yahoo Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… lauren orsini 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the grid. Here’s what’s new on your Flickr account:Room To GrowAs recently as yesterday, free Flickr users could upload and display 200 images at a time. Now every user has one terabyte of storage space. For those of you playing along at home, that’s enough for roughly 200,000 photos. Or as the Flickr staff puts it even more dramatically, “you could take a photo every hour for forty years without filling one.”Following Flickr’s consistently freemium model, you can get even more perks by going pro. Fifty dollars will remove all advertisements. And for the serious professional, $499.99 will double your storage space to two terabytes per year. Or, you know, more than 400,000 photos. If you already had an original Flickr Pro account, priced at $24.95, you’re getting a heck of a deal. Yahoo has upgraded you to the $49.99 option until August 2013, free of charge. Pro user Aaron Brazell sent us a screenshot of his pro account, pictured below: A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Wait, What’s Going On?A lot here has changed and Flickr power users are still trying to figure out what’s new. Flickr’s most active discussion forum, Flickr Central, is abuzz with comments about the change. Given that these are the people that continued to daily use Flickr even as the rest of the Internet complained it was dead, it’s no surprise they’re unhappy with the change.“I signed on Flickr to post a story about Yahoo vowing not to screw up Tumblr … and then I see the clusterfuck that is the new homepage,” one user wrote. Meanwhile, confusion abounds at Flickr’s official Help Forum. I’d be amazed if the staff can answer all 1,100 plus questions that were added in the last hour. It looks like Yahoo might want to update Flickr’s FAQ guidelines, which still link to old news like the ability to pay $24.95 for a pro subscription.If you’re confused, don’t add to the backlog. I have reached out to Yahoo for details on when the new FAQ will be up and will update when we know more. Update May 21 at 8 AM Pacific: a Yahoo spokesperson informed me the Flickr FAQ has been updated with new information about the redesign.  Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts last_img read more


first_imgN. SrinivasanBCCI President-in-exile N Srinivasan was on Thursday formally appointed the first Chairman of the ICC after its 52-member council approved a controversial revamp of the body’s administrative structure.The full council approved the amendments to the ICC’s Memorandum and Articles of Association at the Annual Conference, here.As was widely known before the conference, Srinivasan was elected the Chairman despite being barred by the Supreme Court of India from carrying out his duties as BCCI President due to ongoing investigations into the match-fixing allegations relating to the 2013 edition of the IPL.However, after the Apex court refused to stop his nomination to the ICC position, decks were cleared for his anointment to the newly-created post. The revamp will also hand major executive decision-making authority to the ‘Big Three’ of the game — India, Australia and England.”It is an honour to be confirmed as the Chairman of the International Cricket Council. I will leave no stone unturned in trying to strengthen the pillars and foundations of our sport, both on and off the field,” Srinivasan said in a statement issued by the ICC.”I want to ensure that cricket retains and grows its popularity, and that the ICC plays a leading role in this global growth. I want to see more strong teams in international cricket. For this to be achieved, we all need to work hard to develop local talent in our countries. Naturally, there will be more support to those who first show they can help themselves,” he addedadvertisementSrinivasan congratulated outgoing ICC President Alan Isaac for his contribution.”Mr Isaac has been an inspirational President of the ICC. He provided guidance to everyone during his two-year term and all three international formats remain incredibly popular. The game is unquestionably stronger than it was at the start of his term,” said Srinivasan.The approval of the constitutional changes, which flowed from an ICC Board resolution taken in Singapore on February 8 and finalised on April 10, also means that a new Executive Committee was formed, which will report to the ICC Board.The initial Chair of the Executive Committee will be Cricket Australia’s Chairman, Wally Edwards, while the Chair of the ICC’s Finance and Commercial Affairs Committee (F&CA) will continue to be England and Wales Cricket Board’s Chairman, Giles Clarke.The Annual Conference also saw Mustafa Kamal become the 11th President of the ICC.”This is a memorable and historic day for Bangladesh cricket. On this day 14 years ago, Bangladesh became the 10th Test playing country. Today, a Bangladeshi becomes the 11th President of the International Cricket Council. Thank you for bestowing this honour on Bangladesh and me,” said Kamal.”Over the next 12 months, I look forward to working with the ICC Board and ICC Management, and will be delighted to contribute in any way I can. In Mr Srinivasan and David Richardson, I have absolute trust and confidence that we have a combination that will not only strengthen our sport, but will also take this great organisation to a new level.”From 2016, the ICC Board, which will continue to be the primary decision-making body, will elect the ICC Chairman for a two-year term.The ICC Board confirmed that the USA Cricket Association (USACA) is the recognised member. The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and ICC management will, however, continue to work with USACA and other interested stakeholders to assist in overcoming some challenges currently facing the governance and development of the game in the USA.The ICC Board also approved the Development Committee’s recommendation that Oman Cricket (OC) become the 38th Associate Member of the ICC. However, Affiliate Membership of Brunei was suspended, while Tonga was removed as an Affiliate Member. The ICC now has 105 members.The ICC Board also noted the Associate and Affiliate Members’ decision, which re-elected Imran Khawaja and Neil Speight for another two years as their representatives on the ICC Board, while Keith Oliver was replaced by Francois Erasmus.- with PTI inputslast_img read more

first_imgPrince Harry ended his US tour by thanking the people of America for their “extraordinary generosity” and playing in his fund-raising Sentebale Polo Cup match to help fund the work of his charity.Speaking to the 400 polo guests who helped raise the funds for his Sentebale charity, Prince Harry said: “This is the last day of my tour around the United States. Thank you for a wonderful week.“I have witnessed the extraordinary generosity of the people of this great nation.”The match, which saw Prince Harry play against a team which included Dawn Jones, the wife of Hollywood star Tommy Lee Jones, was staged at Greenwich Polo Club, founded by billionaire businessman and art collector Peter Brant.The Prince visited the White House, where he received glowing praise from First Lady Michelle Obama last Thursday, for serving his country as an officer in the British Army and for supporting America’s wounded servicemen and women.And Prince Harry spent the weekend promoting America’s Warrior Games where British servicemen and women have been competing in Paralympic-style events against a large US team and troops from other countries.The polo match was staged at the club in the exclusive Connecticut town of Greenwich. With its large colonial homes, white picket fence fences and immaculate grass verges it is a semi-rural retreat for executives, bankers and lawyers who commute to Manhattan.Prince Harry played in a team captained by Malcolm Borthwick, an England regular, and their opponents were led by the Argentinian Nacho Figueras, a Ralph Lauren model, who was recently appointed an ambassador for Sentebale. Famous faces who watched the match included the fashion designers Valentino and Jason Wu, model Karolina Kurkova and the reality TV star Olivia Palermo.They saw Prince Harry score the winning goal in a hard-fought game that ended Sentebale 4 St Regis 3.Before the match Prince Harry spoke about the work of Sentebale to guests.He said: “Since we last played for the Cup in Brazil a year ago, Sentebale has taken great strides forward. Our Mamohato Camps – what today is all about – have now established Network Clubs nationwide, reaching into the most remote, rural areas.“Whilst Sentebale may be evolving rapidly, the situation on the ground in Lesotho remains critical.“The HIV pandemic continues to leave thousands of children without parents and family structures to guide them through life.“Without this support, basic needs such as food, shelter and care remain unmet, leaving children vulnerable and very often without much hope in their lives.”Prince Harry and his winning team mates were presented with a trophy when they left the field and all received a kiss from Ms Kurkova.Source:PrinceHenryOfWales.orglast_img read more

first_img Recommended for you Poachers found Sunday; slammed with seven charges Related Items:dominicans, poachers Dominican poachers arrested and charged Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 22 Feb 2016 – There are 4,000 registered Dominicans resident in the Turks and Caicos according to officials, so it is no wonder the government of that country wants to set up a consulate office here. His Excellency, Peter Beckingham and Clara Gardiner, the Permanent Secretary for Border Control are just returned from high level talks in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic where six benchmarks were agreed upon. The media release said, one that the DR expressed a wish to open a full time Consulate in The Turks and Caicos Islands. That two; the Foreign Minister and Governor noted the increasing number of arrests of Dominican fishermen operating illegally within TCI Waters. They agreed that it was important to prevent this activity, both sides are open to a dialogue and the possibility of co-operation between the DR’s navy and the TCI’s police force. The third stride is that both leaders noted the likelihood of illegal human trafficking between the two countries, and agreed to beef up efforts to stop this. As a fourth desired measure, both the TCI and the DR agree on the prospects for more trade and investment between the two countries, including possibly in construction materials and processing, as well as direct investment in the tourism sector, and the services sector. The fifth is that the DR Foreign Minister wants to visit the Turks and Caicos, possibly with a small business delegation and sixth on the list is that ongoing row over maritime demarcation issues. His Excellency Beckingham reports that the Dom Rep continues to seek a consensus among relevant bodies about this issue. It was noted in the meeting too that InterCaribbean Airways has proven a valuable airline partner between the TCI and the Dominican Republic.
