WAEC Wants Funds to Fast Track Reprinting of Exam Papers

first_imgDeputy Education Minister for Instruction, Romelle A. Horton has disclosed that they will launch full investigation into the scandal involving the West African Examination (WAEC).Deputy Minister Horton embarrassed by the situation for its negative implications on Liberia said, “We have launched a full scale investigation into the matter and the public must be assured that anyone or perpetrators found culpable of the crime will be required to face the law.”She added that cancellation of the exam was intended to regain confidence and to help strengthen the educational system or the country by ensuring transparency and accountability.Minister Horton said the Ministry of Education (MOE), in collaboration with WAEC, has put into place the necessary measures to ensure that the theft is not repeated.In the wake of cancellation of the exam, the West African Examination Council (WAEC) Monrovia office boss, John Gayvolor, says they need the amount of US$300,000 to reprint of the exam for the entire country.He made the disclosure while addressing the regular press briefing at the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT) in Monrovia on recently.Gayvolor said the finance will also cover the delivery of the exam materials across the country; revealing that prior to the incident, they had earlier secured 210 testing centers and hired the services of more than 1,564 porters for the smooth conduct of the exam. “We have earmarked June 27 to July 2 for the conduct of the exam; therefore, the resource is urgently needed to help fast track the exam reprint exercise.“We could not administer an exam that was stolen. Some unscrupulous individuals want to ensure that the WAEC exam loses credibility, but we are committed to ensuring that students are better prepared for future challenges,” he said. Gayvolor said that despite the exam papers being guarded by state security, including WAEC security officers, test papers on each of the nine subjects were stolen.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Firefighters keep careful eye on next set of Santa Anas

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Fire crews from the rest of the country have arrived in Southern California so local and state firefighters can get some rest before the winds return, he said. The CDF will also post an additional 25 engines, 14 bulldozer crews, 28 hand crews and extra helicopters and air tankers at critical spots around the region, Berlant said. “We’re talking about hundreds of additional firefighters,” he said. Long linked to devastating fires, the seasonal Santa Ana winds are created when high pressure over the Great Basin sends cold, dry air rushing toward Southern California, where it warms rapidly and speeds up as it squeezes down mountain passes and canyons and blows out to sea. A fire weather planning forecast issued Monday by the National Weather Service office in San Diego said the outlook for Friday and Saturday was for a possible “weak to moderate Santa Ana wind event.” “The exact strength of the offshore flow is still uncertain but there is potential for moderately strong gusty winds through and below mountain canyons and passes. Offshore winds will weaken by Sunday,” the forecast said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Firefighters still mopping up last week’s firestorms are preparing for another round of Santa Ana winds this weekend. The notorious Santa Anas, predicted to arrive Friday, will have sustained winds of 15 mph – much weaker than the fierce blasts of dry air that spread flames last week, but still strong enough to cause trouble to exhausted crews. “One of the reasons we’re monitoring these winds so closely is that Santa Ana winds are very unpredictable,” said Daniel Berlant, a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. “We are going to be prepared for this wind event.” Berlant said the winds are expected to last through Saturday before dying down. last_img read more

ELECTION 2014: FORMER GARDA GALLIGAN REPORTS POSTER VANDALS – TO GARDAI

first_imgFirst-time election candidate Christy Galligan has hit out at a group of ‘faceless’ locals in Letterkenny who he claims are tearing his election posters down.Election candidate Christy GalliganFormer Garda Sergeant Galligan says he has some idea who is doing it and has contacted the authorities.“Unfortunately, a number of large posters I had put up in different parts of the town have been pulled down in recent days, and even in some cases, ripped up or run over. This is an obstruction of local democracy. “I have some idea of who is involved, and I have referred the matter to the Gardai.“As a former Garda Sergeant, I am someone who has always believed in staying on the right side of the law, but unfortunately, there are a minority of faceless people out there who don’t share my opinion.”He added every candidate in this election is entitled to promote themselves, and postering campaigns are part and parcel of that process.Furthermore, the people of Letterkenny and Milford deserve a well-rounded insight into who is running to be their public representatives, he said. “That is how local democracy works – anyone who obstructs or hampers this process should be ashamed of themselves.“As a new candidate, I am genuinely interested in running a campaign that is fair, and that fully respects the rights of other candidates to promote their own views to the people of Letterkenny and Milford. Ultimately it is local people who will decide on polling day.“In the meantime, I wish all of my running mates in this election the very best in their campaigns, but ask those who persist in obstructing my own campaign to desist from their actions immediately.”ELECTION 2014: FORMER GARDA GALLIGAN REPORTS POSTER VANDALS – TO GARDAI was last modified: May 7th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Christy GalliganGardaiposterslast_img read more

Creeslough water supply removed from EPA risk list

first_imgThe Creeslough Water Supply has been given the thumbs up by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), who have removed the supply from their Remedial Action List (RAL).Over 3,000 consumers use the Creeslough Water Supply, which had been identified as ‘at risk’ of failing to consistently supply safe, clean drinking water.Extensive investment and upgrade works were carried out by Irish Water working in partnership with Donegal Council to improve the supply. The latest report from the EPA shows that Irish Water has reduced the number of schemes on the RAL in Donegal from 11 to 4, since 2015.Works are continuing on the remaining four Donegal water supplies with a view to having them removed from the RAL as soon as possible. The water supplies currently on the RAL are Greencastle, Glenties, Milford and Letterkenny. All four water supplies are expected to be removed from the RAL in 2020. Creeslough water supply removed from EPA risk list was last modified: December 5th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Convert Visitors to Users With A Unique Sign Up Button

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts In any relationship, business or personal, first impressions are critical to getting off on the right foot. For startups, if a user gets a bad first impression of your website, that same sentiment will carry through to their opinion of your service. A few weeks ago we told you about some pointers to make sure your site’s registration process isn’t scaring away users. A recent post on web development blog Six Revisions focuses in on this issue by providing some techniques and best practices for creating and designing the perfect registration button.Besides being aesthetically pleasing, the design of the registration button can benefit from the following three suggestions, according to Six Revisions’ Dibakar Jana. First, the registration button needs to be above the fold and preferably in close proximity to a description of the main features of the site or product. There’s nothing worse than visiting a site you find intriguing only to waste precious time searching high and low for a poorly placed “register here” button. Don’t get caught up by placing too much information on your site’s landing page. Sometimes less is more. Secondly, an appealing registration button can go beyond being near the main features of the site by actually including those features in the button itself. By this, Jana means that buttons which say “Try now with a $2.00 credit” or “Buy Your Tickets Today” (examples Jana provides from InstantLoop and Vegas Uncork’d) speak louder than a simple “Sign Up” or “Register Here” button. You’re trying to convince visitors to your site that your product is unique, so try for some originality in your registration copy.Finally, aside from telling visitors what all the great features of your site are, show them why they should sign up. Do registered users stand to benefit from your site’s services more than casual browsers? Baramail beckons users to “Sign up now for a free account” while others like Myzeo offer “one year of FREE Coaching” in their sign up buttons. The more a user knows about what they’re getting into, and why registering for your site is a good idea, the more likely the are to follow through.Take Tumblr‘s registration process as a shining example of originality and excellent copy and design. A visit to the site’s homepage reveals their motto, “The easiest way to blog,” set in a large font size directly above an equally oversized registration form. The form, which sits beneath a cleverly placed “See 24 reasons why you’ll love Tumblr” link, asks for just an email address, a password and a personal Tumblr URL choice – all displayed in an absurdly yet amusingly large font size. Finally, the site invites registrants to “Sign up and start posting!” Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#How To#start chris cameron Whichever route you chose, just be original. Avoid using boring and simple “Join” buttons, or worse, a registration form which ends with the cold and thoughtless “Submit” button. People don’t want to feel like they are “submitting” their information to you, help them feel welcomed in a warmer, more personal way. If you need inspiration, be sure to check out Jana’s post on Six Revisions for dozens of examples, then pass your friendly suggestions along to your web designer. Remember, you only get one chance to make a first impression. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
