PPP declares no confidence in Procurement Commission

first_img…says lukewarm commitment made to investigate scandalsIn September, the parliamentary Opposition had written to the Public Procurement Commission (PPC) to investigate the award of a contract to Dutch company, LievenseCSO, for a feasibility study into the new Demerara River bridge.It had also sought an investigation into the D’Urban Park Project and the Government’s rental of a “bond” at Sussex Street for drug storage. However, according to the People’s Progressive Party, in separate responses, the Commission has said it will investigate all three matters.The D’Urban Park Project is another matter to be examinedBut the Opposition has little confidence in a thorough probe being done, Opposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeira declared on Saturday at a press conference. According to Teixeira, this is due to the fact that while Chairperson Carol Corbin promised to look into the matters raised with the relevant entities, she also wrote that this would be done “within the confines of (the Commission’s) work programme and available resources.”On Saturday, the Opposition party expressed concern about the Commission’s response, noting that the law mandates it has to investigate complaints. Teixeira, who wrote requesting the probe of the feasibility contract, even described the Commission’s response as scary, when its responsibilities are considered.“The issue to flag is that phrase, within the confines of our work programme and available resources. Now the Constitution makes it absolutely clear that once there is a complaint, the PPC has to investigate it.”“It cannot say, well we have a work programme and we have these 10 items, we have to do these first. Or we don’t have enough resources. This is unacceptable, this is a constitutional body,” Teixeira expressed.Teixeira bluntly stated that she had no confidence the Commission would do an investigation.Representatives of Dutch Company LievenseCSO hand over their feasibility study to Minister within the Public Infrastructure Ministry Annette Ferguson. The PPP requested a probe in this matterAccountable agenciesMeanwhile, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall sought to stress that even constitutional agencies can be held accountable. He noted that since the Commission spends millions in taxpayers’ money, it is accountable to the people.“All (such) institutions must understand that (they) are accountable, though they are the beacon of accountability and perhaps one of the chief scrutinisers of public spending. With the intent of deciphering accountability and bringing about transparency, it must understand that it must be acceptable and transparent. And it is being run with a lot of public funds. Check the salary of those people. And the rental they are paying.”“Their functions and mandates are outlined in the Constitution. So it’s not a capricious or whimsical schedule that they can construct. They have to have a work programme that is within their constitutional mandate. And the matters requested in the letter are matters that ought to find priority within their constitutional mandate. I can’t understand (them) having anything more important to do than investigations and make recommendations. That is the substance of their function,” Nandlall continued.The letter PPC Chairperson Carol Corbin sent to PPP Chief Whip Gail TeixeiraD’Urban Park and Sussex St ‘bond’This publication made contact with Opposition parliamentarian Juan Edghill, who confirmed that the Commission also responded in similar fashion to his request for probes into the D’Urban Park Project and the Sussex Street bond.In a letter to Procurement Commission Chairperson Corbin, Edghill identified aspects of the D’Urban Park Project the party is most concerned about. Edghill, a member of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), noted that despite promises to the contrary, no account of donations received between September 2015 and January, 2016 was made public. It therefore queried the procurement process used for works on the project; as well as the scope a private company has to engage contractors and receive funding for a public project. The party queried the budgeted and actual cost throughout the project, as well as the final cost. In addition, the party demanded information on what payments were made to individuals and contractors up to June.In the case of the Sussex Street bond, Edghill also approached the PPC to call for an investigation into the contract inked between the Public Health Ministry and a known financier of the coalition Administration.Edghill had also indicated that the political Opposition was demanding “a definitive pronouncement specifically addressing if this award was done in a fair, equitable, transparent, competitive and cost-effective manner according to our procurement laws.”last_img read more

Training Head Cosmetology Hairdressing : Potential to be great but it just loses too much hair.

first_img Absolutely fabulous my daughter loves it. A great buy for potential hairdressers. When the box arrived, i prepared myself to be disappointed as the box looked so small. But pleasantly surprised as the head is same size as my 12 yr old daughter and the hair is thick and long and feels exactly like human hair. It is surprisingly sturdy and can sit on a table on its own or can be clipped to a unit for total safety. My daughter can’t wait to start practising styles as she wasn’t to be a hairdresser when she’s grown up. Quick delivery, good product. . Arrived very quickly and was exactly as described. My daughter is an apprentice hairdresser and this has been a great help to her. This product has been extremely useful in helping me practice my hair styling skills. I have had it for 4 months now and i’ve had no problems. However, it does she’d quite a bit which is no problem whether you use it regularly or rarely. I would recommend this product. I bought this for my daughter more for play than practice. The main reason was that she could practice make up on it. Well, the hair is ok, easy to brush and style. I cut it straight and it was no problem at all. For the make-up: well my daughter can apply shop bought make up but we can’t take it off easily. The only thing which works is nail varnish remover but this has now discouloured the eyes and partly took the colour away. I bought this for my daughter more for play than practice.

For the make-up: well my daughter can apply shop bought make up but we can’t take it off easily. The only thing which works is nail varnish remover but this has now discouloured the eyes and partly took the colour away. I received the item within the specified timeframe. The hair although straight, feels quite coarse. The mannequin is good to be used to learn different hair styles as long as you don’t mind braids loosening straight after plaiting. This could be down to the texture. It also tangles quite easily which leads to a lot of shedding when detangling. I’ve also noticed that combing it a lot makes the texture of the ends of the hair coarser. There are no instructions on how to set up the clamp but it is easy to figure out. The clamp it was supplied with occasionally loosens if hair is not combed delicately. By that i mean that it may get loose and slide off the table it’s clamped to. This product has been extremely useful in helping me practice my hair styling skills. I have had it for 4 months now and i’ve had no problems. However, it does she’d quite a bit which is no problem whether you use it regularly or rarely. I would recommend this product. Quality hair, not matting, not falling out, nice to brush. . Bought for christmas, and now in april still going strong, not matted, not all fallen out, beautiful hair to brush and practice on. Daughter of 6 loves it and has had it in some good tangles but it has been ok once brushed out. We try and leave it with a plait in so as to protect from matting. And is a good quality for this purpose. Bought as a christmas present,for a young girl to learn and create her own styles,and is a good quality for this purpose. Let down by poor quality clamp. Arrived quickly and well packaged – somewhat more compact than i expected, but sufficient all the same. I’m not a professional hairdresser, i bought it to gain some experience and practice to enable me to be more adventurous with my daughters hair (any parent of a 4-year-old will tell you they’re not the most patient of people). The included clamp is somewhat flimsy – it snapped in two when i tried affixing it to our breakfast table. Without the clamp it’s difficult to use properly, as you need one hand to keep the head stable. I have in the meantime used the clamp screw held in place with a vice, with the head screwed onto that – not a pretty setup, but it has done the job. The hair itself feels fine, though i’m not entirely convinced the ‘80% human hair’ is correct. For my needs however, it is fine (i don’t intend to do anything like curling etc). Adequate for the price, but badly let down by the quality of the clamp. I received this at a discounted rate in exchange for an honest review. Delivered very quickly & she seems very pleased with it. Purchased for my granddaughter’s 9th. Delivered very quickly & she seems very pleased with it. Purchased as a xmas current for my daughter who’s in. Bought as a xmas existing for my daughter who’s in training and necessary a hundred% doll to practice heated styling. Appears to be okay arrives in a bag which seems a bit peculiar but okay.Acquired this to master to do cornrows. Purchased this to learn to do cornrows. Ok for european hair, but not if you want to do afro-caribbean hair as the hair is much too straight.I adore it, excellent good quality but a little scary wanting. All mums of very little ladies will know how useful this piece of package is for two motives. They do not sit still for extensive adequate for you to test new issues out on their hair and if the tables are turnes you quite very well may possibly have used hours seeking to untangle your have hair from just one of all those rotten spherical hair curling brushes. The hairdressing head arrives in a basic brown box and the clamp which will allow you to clip it onto a wide variety of get the job done surfaces and table tops. The face of the doll is a very little weird. She has no eyebrows, eyelashes or colour to her lips at all. My daughter soon sorted this out with a little blusher and lip tint. Not the biggest deal with to test eye makeup on but contouring would operate properly on her ‘skin’. The hair is thick and shiny with many different tones of brown. It is effortless to brush and handle but does shead as you would count on from a ordinary individuals hair.Opportunity to be terrific but it just loses much too much hair. . I obtained the genuine hair a single for my wife to use who’s training as a beautician. The hair seems to be real ample and clamp and head all look to be quite stable. There looks to be just about more than enough hair on the head to be ready to educate with. Regrettably this matter sheds hair like it has a serious case of alopecia. Every time my spouse employs this, there is a mass bundle of hair that has dropped off onto the floor. She has not dared to use any hairspray on it as she isn’t going to want to clean the hair in scenario way too much falls out. With 15 uses, i might say it has misplaced 30% of it truly is hair and i have unfastened hair floating about all above my home now even with utilizing this in an region with picket flooring.I feel it is a good price for the selling price compared to other mannequins with. I believe it can be a excellent worth for the value as opposed to other mannequins with the same size of human hair. The hair is delicate, not many grays and the doll appears to be kinda human. For the reason that some of the dolls seem like aliens.Excellent for all solutions which include heat. But the clamp arrived broken and vendor is not responding.I feel it is a good price for the selling price compared to other mannequins with.

Open Thread: Dealing With Real-Time Negativity

first_imgTags:#Open Thread#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… jolie odell I’m fresh off a Social Media Week panel with Collecta co-founder Brian Zisk and Stage Two marketing firm founder Jeremy Toeman; we’ve been chatting for the past couple hours on how to deal with the realities of the real-time web.One of the greatest concerns folks in the audience had is how to deal with negativity – bad-review-type blog posts, angry tweets, disparaging comments, etc. – in an environment that’s instant, viral, noisy and difficult to control. While each of the panelists had their own answers, I’d like to ask our readers: How do you handle being smacked down, called out or criticized in a real-time web environment?Especially for brands and organizations that rely on community management, online CRM systems and social media marketing, being able to adeptly and quickly filter signals and take appropriate action is key to surviving in the real-time Internet. But knee-jerk reactions aren’t always the best way to deal with negativity. Toeman’s comment about the real-time web is interesting and insightful. “Where there’s smoke, there’s sometimes fire,” he said. “And sometimes, it’s just smoke.” Responding to every negative comment can sometimes create a legitimate “fire” in a situation where not responding would allow the (non)event to blow over.Two fellows in the audience today asked how to deal with negative blog comments, either on one’s own (or one’s company’s) blog or on a third-party site. Since I’ve been spending more time reading our own comment threads – and interacting with readers that way – my immediate response is that one of the best ways to deal with negative comments is to leave them there and let them go without comment. Almost without fail, friends or fans will come to the defense of the product or idea being discussed without the brand or author having to do anything about it. That’s just the nature of community. We all on the panel seemed to agree that often, learning to ignore unwarranted negativity can be a blessing, but it’s a learned skill that takes time and patience. The virtue of not reacting is one that most of us have had to learn the hard way after being tormented by the big, mean Internet, spinning our wheels and expending our social capital to fight battles we cannot win. Communicating this learned patience to clients and less experienced users is an important part of what true social media experts ought to be doing; in addition to encouraging dialog, we have to let others know that it’s sometimes ok to ignore negativity and remain respectfully silent.The old adage “don’t feed the trolls” was admirably updated by Zisk, who said, “Don’t feed the trolls, unless you’re feeding them tranquilizers.” He said that often, angry people simply want to be heard and acknowledged; any attempt at self-defense or debate on the part of the brand or post author will simply escalate the negativity. Another point where the three of us saw eye-to-eye is that age, experience and patience are great virtues, even in a fast-paced, real-time environment. Being able to predict which negative signals will dissolve into the ether and knowing which real issues need to be address, understanding different real-time community’s audiences and attitudes and knowing how to use each channel or platform – these are things that almost no 22-year-old “social media expert” will be able to do.What’s your take on it? How do you personally deal with snipes, snarks or blatant attacks in real-time media channels? If you represent or advise brands, how do corporate communications change when real-time negative comments enter the conversation? Let us know in the comments.
