Hon Sharlene Robinson chides the government for boasting about some $200 million dollars in various bank accounts. “We continue to hear the cries and can say to you that the creation of a Jobs Policy and the management of jobs will be a top priority for a PDM Government. The attitude of this Government in their “we will get to it, when we get to it” attitude when PDM raise issues that affect our people continues.” The PDM continues in that media statement issued today, with a plea for the government to change its approach and to stop ignoring what is good for the people.

Just news of a product available for pre-order is all it took to trigger a crush of responders and to sell out the long awaited, credit-card sized computer with a $35 pricetag. The Raspberry Pi computer sold out in hours on Wednesday, after sites distributing the product witnessed unprecedented traffic. Citation: Distributors reel from Mad Wednesday rush for $35 Pi (2012, March 1) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-03-distributors-reel-mad-wednesday-pi.html According to the Financial Times, one of the two device distributors, Premier Farnell, reported half a million hits in 15 minutes, The other distributor, RS Components, said they had never before witnessed that level of demand for any one product at one go.What’s the big deal? Those following the rise of the Raspberry Pi say the answer is not only price but principle. Developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in the UK, the miniature PC is intended to eventually become an affordable mainstay for schools to use, to expose children and youths to programming and command lines rather than just touchscreens and in-store apps.Wednesday’s opening offer for pre-orders is actually for a developer release. The Foundation aims to build a community of developers who can write software for the device before they issue the school-targeted product, priced even lower, at $25, which will be available at a later date.In the UK, the Foundation efforts are widely applauded and not only for aiming to educate youth. Some observers think the mad rush for the devices reflect a backlash trend toward old-school hobbyist programming among those tired of showroom computer bling.The Raspberry Pi, based on the ARM chip, does not come with monitor or keyboard; it is a bareboned PC on a naked circuit board with connectors. The Raspberry Pi is designed so that it can plug into a TV and a keyboard. The computer supports Python, a suitable programming language even for novices. The device runs Linux. (Its first proof of concept is based on Debian but a Fedora ARM secondary architecture project has a Fedora Linux distribution for ARM-based devices. The Fedora version is the work of faculty and students at Seneca College, Canada, where they configured and optimized it to work with the Raspberry Pi.)The chips and connectors allow users to connect cameras and other gadgets via USB, and can deal with high-definition video and sound. More specifically, the device has a 700MHz processor, 256MB of RAM, SD card support, two USB ports, an Ethernet hookup and HDMI and RCA outputs.“Although we are still waiting for units to arrive from China, you can start buying the Raspberry Pi today,” announced the foundation site.They entered into licensed manufacture partnerships with the two British companies, Premier Farnell and RS Components, and the two will be manufacturing and distributing the devices on behalf of the foundation. Each Raspberry Pi sold will generate a small profit for the foundation, which it will put back into the charity.The foundation’s web site also sought to explain on Wednesday that both distributor websites were experiencing heavy load and that international customers may find that Raspberry Pi was not yet available in their areas. The foundation asked for patience and to check back.
Weddings preparations start months in adance and amidst all the running around markets, the bride forgets to take care of herself. However this winter, make sure you are following some simple rules to shine even on a hectic day. Celebrity makeup artist Namrata Soni and Dermatologist Rashmi Shetty has come to the rescue of all brides-to-be with essential beauty and skincare secrets for the best bridal look this wedding season.4Don’t forget to moisturize: Winter weather is not fun for skin. Cold weather and low humidity levels result in dry air, which then steals moisture leaving the skin dry and lifeless. If you’re more prone to dry skin, using a good moisturizer suitable for your skin type is essential. Additionally, homemade hydrating masks can also provide moisture in the winter months. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfAdding natural moisturising ingredients like honey, avocado, yogurt, olive and jojoba oils, almond oil, bananas, and aloe to the mask will help you experience smooth and soft skin instantly. Also, make sure you remove all your make-up before going to bed and apply a hydrating cream as it helps the skin breathe and gives it some much-needed nourishment and rejuvenation.4Exfoliation is crucial: During winters, our skin tends to dry faster requiring regular exfoliation, hence it’s recommended that one uses an “at-home” method for this. Take a product that is enriched with body butters and glycerin.

To get that healthy, dewy glow, drinking plenty of water is essential as it not only hydrates your body but also flushes away unwanted toxins.Besides plenty of water, eating healthy food is also crucial. In addition to this, ensure you layer your skin with proper hydrating products like a mist, serum and moisturiser before applying makeup. Start with a hydrating mist to moisten the skin and allow your make-up products to penetrate. 4For a perfect smile: With winters, your lips tend to become dry and chapped. To get rid of dry skin, lightly exfoliate by rubbing your fingers on wet lips in circular motions. After you exfoliate, use a lip balm or a healing cream as this will not only make your lips smooth, but also get the blood flowing and make your lips look a little fuller.4Getting enough sleep: Sleeping is one of the best rewards you can give your skin. During your sleep cycle, your body repairs each of its systems, including your skin. Deep breathing and meditation is also a very important part of skin cleansing as watching your breath flow in and out helps you become aware of your skin and thus rejuvenates it.
