President of Guyana David GrangerGEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC) — Guyana’s President David Granger has warned that the Caribbean cannot compete in the global market if it is unable to attract highly qualified university graduates.Addressing the 13th annual conference of the Caribbean Area Network for Quality Assurance in Tertiary Education (CANQATE) here on Tuesday night, Granger said that poor performances at the nursery, primary and secondary levels of education are not just a problem for tertiary institutions.He said that it is also a problem for the development of a highly skilled and qualified workforce and called for a quality assurance approach to educational delivery in the region.Granger said that the creation of a large pool of highly qualified graduates requires a strong framework of standards of quality assurance in education from nursery to university.“Quality assurance, at every tier of the educational system, not just at the post-secondary and tertiary levels, will boost the region’s economic prospects,” he said warning that the “Caribbean cannot compete in the global market place unless its economies are populated by a sufficient number of qualified graduates from our schools and universities”.Granger said that the quality assurance in the education system requires a fresh approach based on a robust institutional framework and vigorous investigation and inspection. He said that it is necessary for standards to be established by which the quality of educational delivery and performance can be measured.“Tertiary education in the Caribbean will continue to be overwhelmed with remedial functions unless quality assurance can be guaranteed at the level of the nursery, at the level of the primary and at the level of the secondary schools,” he said.The Guyana head of State said integration and education are two vital vehicles for enhancing the region’s economic competitiveness, particularly in the context of the Caribbean Single Market and Economy (CSME) that allows for the free movement of goods, skills, labour, and services across the region.CANQATE president Dr Ronald Brunton said that the conference will go a long way towards strengthening the National Accreditation Council’s position as the legitimate, recognised quality assurance agency in Guyana.The conference is being organised by the National Accreditation Council in collaboration with the education ministry with funding from the United National Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).Several countries from the region and the hemisphere are participating this year, including: Jamaica, Canada, St Lucia, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, Grenada, and St Kitts and Nevis.It is being held under the theme, “Sustaining a Culture of Quality Assurance in Tertiary Education for National and Regional Development”.

Engineering material and application specialists, Nylacast, made history at the prestigious 2018 British Engineering Excellence Awards, with its low friction marine technology the Chock Liner receiving the accolade for Materials Application of the year.The ten strong judging panel bought in from across the engineering spectrum to scrutinise each finalist, summarised the Chock Liner as being “A classic example of the right material finding the perfect application to create a successful product.”Initially developed for LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) carriers in the oil and gas sector, the multiple advantages created by the Chock Liner today see it being used across the global maritime industry, featuring on a wide variety of vessel types including Navy, tugs, ferries, container vessels and cruise liners.The low friction product is an engineering solution and application created to address the mooring challenges faced within the industry. Developed using Nylacast’s leading materials technology, the custom-formulated polyamide 6 material, coupled with the patented product design results in an easily installed and retrofitted liner, delivering significant reduction of rope wear, abrasion and tearing. It also provides better equalisation of mooring loads, in addition to greatly reducing the need for routine and costly maintenance.Taking place at County Hall in Central London, just a stone’s throw away from Parliament Square, the British Engineering Excellence Awards, hosted by writer and broadcaster Dr Kevin Fong, welcomed leading companies from across the UK to celebrate engineering success and innovation stemming from the region. The event saw the Materials Application of the Year Award being presented to Nylacast.Having previously received The BEEA’s for its EPS Worm Wheel and Pipe in Pipe Spacers, records were set at this year’s prestigious ceremony when Nylacast took to the stage for a third time in the awards nine year history.Nylacast Group Marketing Manager, Junaid Makda, commented, “The Chock Liner is great evidence of using engineering to combat challenges regularly encountered in key industries. We are honored to have received a third British Engineering Excellence Award, which is testament to the teams, infrastructure and engineering know-how continuously developed at Nylacast.”The Chock Liner functions to increase the performance and efficiency of mooring operations worldwide, whether it is on a ferry transporting vehicles and passengers, or on a container vessel transporting goods across the globe. The Chock Liner technology creates vast commercial value, increased mooring performance and significantly greater health and safety benefits for vessel builders, owners, operators, and crew members and subsequently their customers.Sea News, October 11 Author: Baibhav Mishra
Nebraska won’t be at the top of this list for long.Under new head coach Mike Riley, the Cornhuskers had 76,881 fans at their spring game Saturday. That’s the most so far this spring and it tops the 2014 spring game attendance mark set by Alabama with 73,506 fans last year at Bryant-Denny Stadium.Just for the record, Riley played cornerback at Alabama under Bear Bryant from 1971 to 1974.

Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports that Alvaro Morata never considered leaving Chelsea despite being linked with a move this summer.“There was never a thought for me to leave,” the striker said.“For me, it’s easy. I could have gone back to Spain or Italy, all the people believe in me there but I want to change all the things here.“I want to, not for all the haters, but for me and for Chelsea.” A look at the stories involving Chelsea in Monday’s newspapers…Ruben Loftus-Cheek will hold talks with Chelsea this week and could ask to move on loan, according to The Sun.In what it labels “showdown talks”, The Sun say Loftus-Cheek will ask boss Maurizio Sarri to loan him out if he is not going to play regularly at Stamford Bridge.AdChoices广告It comes after Loftus-Cheek, who spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace, was overlooked for Chelsea’s first matches of the season.The transfer window in England is closed but it remains open in other parts of Europe until the end of the month, meaning Premier League players can still join clubs on the Continent before then.

The 22-year-old left the La Liga winners and joined Aston Villa in 2015, only for him to leave them and make a switch to Middlesbrough a year later.Having managed to impress for Boro during his two-year spell, Wolverhampton Wanderers acquired his services earlier in the summer transfer window.He came off the bench to score the winner for his side in the stoppage time against West Ham United on Septmeber 1st, and Mundo Deportivo have a story in today’s edition of the newspaper regarding the Wolves’ record signing.The Catalan publication mentions how the player has transformed from a player who was simply quick to a ‘bomb’, after overcoming muscle problems and claims his ‘physical transformation has been remarkable’. Mundo also mentions that Adama ‘intimidates’ opponents and is enjoying the best moments of his career so far, kicking on with his transfer to Wolves.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles meet in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉（今晚試試）Keto减肥UndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystDigitization in Banks Is No Longer About Efficiency, but Business Resilience.

Earlier this week, it was revealed by the French media that Pep Guardiola had personally called Ismaël Bennacer to talk to him about his project at Manchester City. RMC Sport were the ones reporting this, confirming previous information from Foot Mercato that the Spaniard held an active interest in the Algeria international, currently contracted to Milan.The French outlet went onto reveal that Bennacer had a €50m release clause in his contract, and that Manchester City could make a move in the ‘briefest delays’.Corriere dello Sport pick up the story on Friday, making it clear that the Premier League side ‘have not yet made a real offer’, and there’s confidence in the Milan offices the clause could be deterring them.Embed from Getty ImagesThe reason for that is to actively trigger the €50m clause, Manchester City need to do so in one big payment, as any other offer (if they wanted to pay the fee in instalments, for example) can be rejected.That means €50m cash or nothing.We all know that’s a fee Pep Guardiola’s side can afford, and if they do, Milan would then be able to register a ‘mega capital gain of over €35m’, allowing them to ‘take a big step forward in the reduction of red in the balance sheet’.However, this scenario is described as a ‘remote possibility’, and they are ‘not worried about the player’s departure’, and are instead ‘convinced he can be the centrepiece of their future midfield’.Manchester City now know what to do.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a Beautiful City and Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

(Field Level media) Longtime Canadian hockey commentator Don Cherry was fired yesterday after his on-air comments that many believed disparaged immigrants. Cherry, 85, was speaking Saturday on his “Coach’s Corner” segment on “Hockey Night In Canada” and began a discussion of Remembrance Day – the Canadian equivalent of Veterans Day. People often wear red poppies, paper poppies or similar pins to mark the day.“I live in Mississauga,” he said on the air. “Very few people wear the poppy. Downtown Toronto, forget it. Nobody wears the poppy. … Now you go to the small cities. You people … that come here, whatever it is — you love our way of life. You love our milk and honey. At least you can pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that. These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada. These guys paid the biggest price for that.”On Sunday, Sportsnet president Bart Yabsley apologized for Cherry’s comments, and the network fired him on Monday. “Sports brings people together. It unites us, not divides us. Following further discussions with Don Cherry after Saturday night’s broadcast, it has been decided it is the right thing for him to immediately step down. During the broadcast, he made divisive remarks that do not represent our values or what we stand for,” Yabsley said in a statement on Monday. “Don is synonymous with hockey and has played an integral role in growing the game over the past 40 years. We would like to thank Don for his contributions to hockey and sports broadcasting in Canada.”Cherry confirmed his firing to the Toronto Sun on Monday afternoon and said he didn’t regret his comments.“I have just learned I’ve been fired by Sportsnet for comments made on Coach’s Corner Nov. 9,” Cherry said in a phone interview. “No problem.” He added: “I know what I said and I meant it. Everybody in Canada should wear a poppy to honor our fallen soldiers.”He said his comments were not meant to be insensitive to other cultures.“I speak the truth and I walk the walk,” he said. “I have visited the bases of the troops, been to Afghanistan with our brave soldiers at Christmas, been to cemeteries of our fallen around the world and honored our fallen troops on Coach’s Corner.” Cherry toiled in pro hockey from 1951-72, playing all but one game in the minor leagues. His only NHL appearance came in 1955 with the Boston Bruins.He returned to Boston as coach from 1974-79, leading the Bruins to five playoff appearances and a 231-105-64 record.He coached one more season, 1979-80, with the Colorado Rockies and posted a 19-48-13 record. The Rockies later became the New Jersey Devils. CBC hired him in 1981 to appear on “Hockey Night In Canada.” He quickly became known for his over-the-top apparel and controversial opinions. Among his talking points, he commented on why female reporters didn’t belong in locker rooms, expressed negative thoughts about European hockey players, blasted believers in climate change and talked about the benefits of fighting, despite the NHL’s efforts to prevent concussions.
