…on land giveawayOn Sept 19th, Prezzie spoke to the regional press corps on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, and made an intervention on Hurricane relief for the just battered Caribbean islands. GINA reported the Ministry of the Presidency’s press release the same day on its website: “Guyana stands in solidarity with Dominica, ready to offer support”. There was not a word about what form the “support” would take.However, CARICOM followed up the next day (9/20) with some more details on their website, which, for some reason, indicated the Government’s news agency was rather modest in its announcement: “Guyana’s land space can serve as ‘gift’ to the Caribbean battered by hurricanes – President Granger”. The following day, TT’s Newsday cut to the quick about Prezzie’s offer: “Guyana offers land for hurricane victims”. In the meantime, the state-owned Chronic, whose local reporter had featured prominently in the photograph of Prezzie briefing the press, remained mum.It took this newspaper, on Sept 24, to break the news of the Government’s generosity of offering land to the hurricane-hit ‘small islands’. Now, this subject of “giving away lands” was a very touchy issue in Guyana. ACDA, for instance, had made quite a stink about Indigenous Peoples getting lands in the interior – even though some pointed out it was ALL their lands to begin with!! Your Eyewitness figured the Chronic didn’t report Prezzie’s extraordinary offer because they feared ACDA might take to the streets if they found out about it!If they’d objected to Indigenous Peoples getting land, imagine how they would object to these FOREIGNERS getting land!! The plight of the hurricane-hit islanders wouldn’t cut any ice with ACDA, since surveys from Independence to last month showed the Indigenous Peoples had never recovered from the hurricane called the “European Invasion”, which had hit since 1500!! But ACDA, for some reasons that escape your Eyewitness, didn’t utter a word of protest, and it took the ex-AG from the PPP days to take an ACDA-like line and complain that Prezzie had no legal authority to give away Guyana’s patrimony.Well, the Minister of Information’s water boy finally had the Chronic give the OFFICIAL version of the land giveaway. They quoted the Foreign Minister, who made such a ridiculous statement that it bears full repetition: “If West Indians are interested, and if those who are providing relief, need a place in the short term, at which people can be resettled while (their) land is being rebuilt and made habitable, Guyana is prepared to assist in that regard.”So the islanders would leave the land they own (but where their houses were destroyed); move to Guyanese undeveloped land; develop those and erect TEMPORARY housing, and then MOVE BACK to their islands to rebuild their PERMANENT houses?Something na regulah!!…on reason for land giveawayThe unanswered questions set your Eyewitness thinking as to what is really going on. He found a clue in the Chronic’s paraphrase of Minister Greenidge’s explanation: “…making lands available to islanders is nothing new…lands were made available to St. Lucians and other Caribbean nationals along the Linden/Soesdyke Highway in the past.” The “past” of course, was during the first PNC regime under Burnham, whose reason for bringing in Caribbean nationals weren’t on humanitarian grounds.According to declassified US 1965 files, the Dep CIA Director wrote: “In a conversation…on 20 November, Forbes Burnham stated that his immediate objective is to launch his economic development plan so that he will be able to induce large numbers of West Indians of African descent to settle in Guyana prior to the December 1968 elections. His purpose is radically to alter the racial balance now existing in the electorate in sufficient time to enable him to win a plurality in the 1968 elections.”Is the latest offer déjà vu for 2020?…on Amaila Falls HydroAfter playing ducks and drakes for two and a half years, the APNU/AFC government’s finally admitted what’s been clear from the beginning: they’ve abandoned AMFHP.Cutting Guyana’s nose to spite Jagdeo’s LCDS face?

Gerson in action for Fluminense 1 Roma have moved ahead of Chelsea and Manchester United in the race to sign Brazilian wonderkid Gerson.The Fluminense and Brazil Under-20 starlet is expected to join a European superpower this summer, although reigning Champions League holders Barcelona have first refusal on the versatile midfielder.It has been revealed by La Stampa that Roma and Barca are set to enter a bidding war for the 18-year-old, but Chelsea, who have been quiet in the transfer window so far, are ready to match any offers placed on the table.Although Barca’s transfer ban means they unable to register any new signings until January, Luis Enrique is keen to tie up a deal now for Gerson, who is regarded as one of world football’s brightest prospects and valued at £15m.Roma are currently offering the best package for the teenage sensation.And a decision over Gerson’s future is set to be made this week as the teenager’s management team fly to Europe to attend meetings with Roma and Barca directors.

I have also included a ‘ WinMagic in a nutshell’ chart of features below: With the latest release of Intel Antitheft (AT 2.0) it is now possible to brick (lock up) a PC and delete the disk encryption keys – rendering not just the PC inoperable, but locking access to the data on the hard drive so that even swapping the hard drive into another PC and using the original user credentials will not allow access to the data. This is accomplished via AT utilizing the UUID (Unique User ID) of the platform and the user credentials to gain access to the data. the UUID is unique to the platform and cannot be hacked into another platform, the IT department does have the ability through the management vendor of reloading a UUID into the AT Management Engine (ME) in the case of a failed Mother board – this requires an authorized representative of the IT department contact the Managment vendor and verify authentication of both the machine his/her identity.With our newest partner WinMagic it is now possible to offer Pre-Boot Authentication (PBA), Customizable Message Recovery Screen along with Full Disk Encryption (FDE) and storage/deletion of the encryption keys in the Intel AT Management Engine. The ability to send the “Poison Pill” via an SMS (3G) message for immediate lock down of the PC is also supported in AT 2.0 via several 3G hardware solutions. Intel AT 2.0 continues to support all the original Antitheft features with timer based lock down of the PC if a rendezvous with the backend server (internet connection) is missed prior to a timer out situation. The timer features are System Administrator definable and different levels of remediation can be defined up to and including deletion of data. Some of the other new features include: Audit and Event logging, PC Tamper Monitoring (HW Sensor based) and local IT support for Un-Enrolling a PC at EOL.While a software based FDE has been available for some time – Intel AT 2.0 and an FDE solution offer uncompromising security by completely disabiling access to data, if the PC is bricked as the encryption keys are stored in the AT ME and a bricked PC deletes these keys from the PC. A bricked PC’s hard drive data is completely protected even if the original user credentials are known and the hard drive is installed in another PC as the encryption keys are not on the harddrive and the platform UUID is different.The new features of AT 2.0 are fully supported by WinMagic and combined with their FDE product offer an uncompromising solution to protecting sensitive data on your PCs. The following diagram shows a typical corporate network Infrastructure and how a PC checks in and is enrolled into WinMagic’s solution, the Intel Permit Server is used only during enrollment. WinMagic offers both a IT-Hosted and SaaS solutions geared to the enterprise customer as well as the small and medium based business, if you have any questions or would like to inquire about a Pilot or POC project please contact Mike at email@example.com.
Google’s DeepMind aces protein folding Protein Data Bank 25 By Robert F. ServiceDec. 6, 2018 , 12:05 PM Data: abcdefg hijkl mnop qrstu vwxyz 1234 56789 Andriy Kryshtafovych/University of California, Davis So, what was going on? David Baker, a CASP organizer, participant, and computational modeling expert at the University of Washington in Seattle, notes that DeepMind’s scientists built on two algorithm strategies pioneered by others. First, by comparing vast troves of genomic data on other proteins, AlphaFold was able to better decipher which pairs of amino acids were most likely to wind up close to one another in folded proteins. Second, related comparisons also helped them gauge the most probable distance between neighboring pairs of amino acids and the angles at which they bound to their neighbors. Both approaches do better with the more data they evaluate, which makes them more apt to benefit from machine learning computer algorithms, such as AlphaFold, that solve problems by crunching large data sets. DeepMind scientists “are extremely good at machine learning and have a superb team” with deeper pockets than most academic groups, Baker says.Still, not bad for a newbie. “Give them credit,” adds John Moult, another CASP organizer and a computational biologist at the University of Maryland in Rockville. “They came from nowhere.” /Science 100 25 Complex of bacteria-infecting viral proteins modeled in CASP 13. The complex contains four separate subunits that were modeled individually. Data: abcdefg hijkl mnop qrstu vwxyz 1234 56789 75 0 50 75 Other top competitors 0 Turns out mastering chess and Go was just for starters. On 2 December, the Google-owned artificial intelligence firm DeepMind took top honors in the 13th Critical Assessment of Structure Prediction (CASP), a biannual competition aimed at predicting the 3D structure of proteins.The contest worked like this: Competing teams were given the linear sequence of amino acids for 90 proteins for which the 3D shape is known but not yet published. Teams then computed how those sequences would fold. Though London-based DeepMind had not previously joined this competition, the predictions of its AlphaFold software were, on average, more accurate than those of its 97 competitors.How close was the race? By one metric, not very. For protein sequences for which no other information was known—43 of the 90—AlphaFold made the most accurate prediction 25 times. That far outpaced the second place finisher, which won three of the 43 tests.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)So AlphaFold lapped the competition?
