… says decision within a monthNegotiations that were done during a meeting with the high-level task force some time ago to determine whether or not teachers will be entitled to an increase in their salaries is now at the hands of Cabinet.This was according to Education Minister Nicolette Henry, who earlier this week informed media operatives that recommendations were made during the discussion and these were submitted to her for initial evaluation. However, the final resolution will be made after the matter is debated at the level of Cabinet.“The High-Level Task Force of Public Education met and they would’ve made some recommendations in so far as emoluments are related to teachers. That was one of the many issues that was discussed, and they would’ve submitted to me a document which I have reviewed and which I will have to discuss with my Cabinet colleagues as the subject Minister.She explained that other factors surrounding the increase were also raised and were therefore considered before the initial document was crafted.“Prior to that discussion of course, we had to look at the feasibility based on what was proposed and so there were several instances of back and forth with the High-Level Task Force. Cabinet, I suppose, will be able to make an announcement which many will be able to benefit from in a month’s time. ”She noted that while the increase in wages was an important aspect of the discussion, several other issues were highlighted, and recommendations were accordingly made. Again, it was recorded that a response will be made within the period of a month.“It’s much more than salary issues. Coming out of that process, there would be a number of recommendations that we would’ve found favour with and so we intend to move with that in the shortest possible time. Speaking in terms of relativeness, I will say we will see something in about a month’s time or thereabout.”Earlier in April, the High-Level Task Force was engaged in a meeting, whereby the factors affecting teachers were discussed, with the possibility of them receiving an increase in their monthly salaries. However, in May, it was revealed that the matter was within the remit of the Finance Ministry.The original proposal suggested by the Guyana Teachers’ Union (GTU) called for a 50 per cent increase for 2018 and the next two years.

A new joint report on the shale-gas potential of Northeastern B.C.’s Horn River Basin more than doubles a previous assessment of gas resources within the province.The report released Friday by the National Energy Board and British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines titled “Ultimate Potential for Unconventional Natural Gas in Northeastern British Columbia’s Horn River Basin” is the first publicly released probability-based resource assessment of a Canadian shale basin.The report says the ultimate potential for marketable unconventional shale gas in the Horn River Basin is 78 trillion cubic feet, including three Tcf of discovered resources and 75 Tcf of undiscovered resources.- Advertisement -“This innovative report on shale-gas resources provides Canadians with valuable information about our energy future, particularly as it relates to the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin,” said Gaetan Caron, chair of the National Energy Board.B.C. Energy and Mines Minister Rich Coleman said, “This report should provide residents of our province with a sense of optimism about the future. B.C. is recognized for its significant shale gas reservoirs as well as for having world-class regulations.”Placing the Horn River numbers in context, the NEB currently estimates that there is 197 Tcf of conventional and unconventional natural gas remaining in the WCSB — although this number does not take into account known but as-yet-unassessed unconventional gas resources.Advertisement The estimate of total remaining conventional and unconventional natural gas in Northeast B.C available for future demand is 109 Tcf. That includes 78 Tcf of shale gas as well as 31 Tcf of remaining natural gas resources identified in a joint assessment of conventional natural gas resources in Northeast B.C. The conventional gas assessment was released by the NEB and B.C. Ministry of Energy and Mines in 2006.According to the new report on unconventional gas resources, the medium-case estimate of 78 Tcf for Horn River shale gas is the most realistic scenario. However, the study produced a range of numbers for shale gas potential in the Horn River Basin with the low estimate being 61 Tcf and the high being 96 Tcf.

In life, if you generally play by the rules, people will cut you some slack. Take credit, for example: Pay your bills on time, and banks will lend you money at a low interest rate. Skip payments and default on your loans, and you’ll face usurious charges. But somehow this simple rule of life has been lost on the folks at the Boeing Co. To extend the metaphor, Boeing has bad credit. Thanks to the way Rocketdyne operated the Santa Susana Field Laboratory for decades before Boeing took over, the company has a poor track record of dealing with contamination caused by nuclear and rocket fuel research. And even now the firm is still racking up violations, 50 of them for water-quality problems in the past year alone. Boeing hasn’t established the kind of relationship with the community that earns it much slack. Yet that didn’t stop Boeing officials from asking the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board to weaken the pollution limits on storm water flowing off the hilltop lab. To which the board properly replied: Not a chance. Breaks come to those who have earned the public’s trust. Sixteen years after the Daily News disclosed there were serious contamination problems at the field lab ought to be enough time to win friends and clean up the mess.

Call to all South Africans to fly the flag, wear a football shirt, blow your vuvuzela and sing out the National Anthem on 11th June 2009.Thursday 11th June 2009 at 16h00 marks one year to the kick-off of the FIFA 2010 Soccer World Cup – it’s time for ignition! In a symbolic demonstration of national unity and pride, Brand South Africa calls on all South Africans to wear a football jersey (preferably a Bafana Bafana one) or a yellow shirt, on the day and fly the South African flag. And at exactly 16h00, to blow a vuvuzela and sing the National Anthem.A five-minute count-down will begin at 15h55 on radio stations across the country, to cue all citizens, wherever they are, to sing Nkosi Sikelele Afrika at 16h00. The intention behind this nation-wide activation is for South Africa to celebrate one year to kick-off, and to serve as a point of ignition for the tournament. “It is also an act of national pride in, and support to our country as Africa’s first host of this prestigious tournament,” says Paul Bannister, International Marketing Council of South Africa’s Chief Executive.“With the Bulls Super 14 victory fresh in our minds, the IPL cricketing extravaganza successfully behind us, the British and Irish Lions clash in play and the Confederations Cup literally only hours away, South Africa’s sports buzz is infectious,” says Bannister.There is however a subtle but vital difference between being a good host and a great one. “The magic underpinning being great lies in our people, who are able to provide event viewers and visitors with the contagious, edge-of-your-seat buzz and a taste of the competitive spirit to come whilst making them feel truly “at home” in South Africa,” he says.It is up to us all to rally together, as South Africans. “We encourage every South African, whether you are in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Sydney, Toronto or London to join us as we mark an important milestone in our Nation’s history,” concludes Bannister. “This is an easy and fun way for us to let the world know that we are lighting the touch paper for the 2010 World Cup .” Be a part of South Africa’s World Cup revolution!1. South Africa’s national anthem2. South Africa 2010: find out more About the International Marketing of South Africa (Brand South Africa)The International Marketing Council of South Africa was established in August 2002 to help create a positive and compelling brand image for South Africa. At that time, the world was unsure about what to think of South Africa, with many different messages being sent out by various sources. This did very little to build the country’s brand and it was evident that to attract tourism and investment there was a need to co-ordinate marketing initiatives to make them more effective. This led to the creation of the IMC, whose main objective is the marketing of South Africa through the Brand South Africa campaign. There are many benefits to having a consolidated brand image, with the most important being that a consistent Brand South Africa message creates strategic advantages in terms of trade and tourism for the country in an increasingly competitive marketplace.For further information:Margaret DingaloDirector: Stakeholder RelationsInternational Marketing Council of South AfricaTel: +27 11 483 0122Web: www.brandsouthafrica.comYolande De NysschenAccount DirectorMS&L Worldwide | South AfricaTel: +27 11 235 4300Web: www.mslworldwide.com
