“Massive irregularities” uncovered in GPF’s driver’s theory exam

first_imgThe Head of the Guyana Police Force’s (GPF) Office of Professional Responsibility is in the process of conducting an investigation into allegations of “massive irregularities in the Guyana Police Force learner driver’s theoretical examination” which took place on Thursday April 12, 2018 at the Felix Austin Police College, Georgetown.According to a statement from the GPF, a report was lodged by a senior pastor, who is the Force’s Chaplain to the Commissioner of Police (ag), David Ramnarine and one of the invigilators to the April 12 examination.In that report, it is alleged that at the conclusion of the stated examination “One hundred and seventy four (174) persons were registered to write the examination but one hundred and six (106) persons presented themselves on the day in question. However, two hundred and seven (207) scripts were received at the conclusion of the examination and one hundred and fifty five (155) of the two hundred and seven (207) scripts were completed.”Police say that initial inquires revealed that a Senior Subordinate Officer who was mandated to oversee this theoretical examination in collaboration with two pastors from the COPS and Faith Community Network partnership with the GPF, along with three junior ranks, left the examination venue shortly after the examination commenced and did not return.Further it was reported that a Junior Subordinate Officer, who ought not to have been at the examination venue, presented himself, spent some time and left, subsequently.“The three Constables left the examination venue prior to the counting of the examination scripts by members of the COPS and Faith Community Network after the conclusion of the examination,” the Police report said.Guyana Times understands that only the members of the COPS and Faith community Network – the two pastors – were left in possession of the completed examination papers.According to the Police, preliminary inquires revealed a complete breach of the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) governing the administration and conduct of the learner driver’s theoretical examination.As such, “due to the circumstances, while the full and comprehensive investigation is awaited, the members of the public who sat the examination at the venue on the Thursday April 12, 2018, will have to re-sit the examination…regrettably, but deemed absolutely necessary. (They) will be informed of the date and time when they will have to re-sit that particular examination,” the Police press statement said.GPF’s statement also detailed that since the involvement of the members of the COPS Faith Community Network in the invigilation of the Learner Driver’s Theoretical and Practical examinations, there have been reports of a significant reduction in the opportunities for corruption, complaint and allegations, while highlighting that this voluntary involvement will continue.The completed investigation will be sent for legal advice.last_img read more

Marseille spurred on by memories of European glory

first_img“We are lucky to have the chance to continue the love affair that this club has with European competitions,” Payet told reporters in Lyon, where Wednesday’s final will be played.Marseille are hoping the fact the game is being played on French soil will work in their favour, even if Diego Simeone’s Atletico are formidable opponents.“We can go down in history and leave an even bigger mark on this club,” Payet added, as excitement builds around France.Marseille’s glory days may be in the past, while their great rivals Paris Saint-Germain have become the country’s dominant force. But OM remain France’s best supported side.“I think the expectation in Marseille and across the country is quite extraordinary and our motivation comes from that,” said Payet, who is set to play as he recovers from a minor muscle injury that kept him out of his team’s 3-3 Ligue 1 draw at Guingamp last Friday.Coach Rudi Garcia surpassed expectations just by leading Marseille into European competition this season, yet now they have reached the final after a run that started in the third qualifying round last July.Garcia said: “This year we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the only time a French team has won the Champions League. So we have a great example to go on and become the first ones to win the Europa League.”It is Marseille’s fifth European final overall — they lost the 1991 European Cup final on penalties to Red Star Belgrade, before disappointing defeats in the UEFA Cup final to Parma in 1999 and Rafael Benitez’s Valencia in 2004.The only other European trophy won by a French club remains PSG’s victory in the now defunct Cup Winners’ Cup in 1996.“We are lucky to be at Marseille, a club with a love affair with European competitions that goes back to the 1990s, and we are all eager to follow in the footsteps of our illustrious predecessors,” Garcia said.“We know that Atletico stand in our way and that it will be a very difficult mission, but that would make it an even greater achievement if we managed to win the trophy.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Dimitri Payet celebrating after Marseille beat Salzburg in the semi-finals © AFP / VLADIMIR SIMICEKLYON, France, May 15 – Marseille star Dimitri Payet is determined to go down in history by beating Atletico Madrid in Wednesday’s Europa League final as the club celebrates a quarter of a century since their greatest moment.They became the first, and to date only, French club to win the Champions League by beating AC Milan in the 1993 final, and now they are hoping to become the first team from the country to lift the Europa League trophy.last_img read more

More than a product, STEMlab is a test and measurement environment that includes a board, an application marketplace and a source code library, all of which foster collaboration and ultimately unleash the inventiveness of users. Users – which vary from small student teams all the way up to large multi-national corporations – have described STEMlab as ‘the Swiss Army PenKnife for engineers’. STEMlab is designed to be a low-cost alternative to many expensive measurement and control instruments and can function as an Oscilloscope, Logic Analyser, Signal Generator, Spectrum Analyzer and much more.STEMlab is based on a dual core ARM Cortex A9 + Xilinx Zynq 7010 FPGA system-on-chip (SoC), which features a dual core processor and FPGA logic, enabling software and hardware programming.
