Appropriation Bill and Estimates 2019 Debate

The government has introduced a new format to debating the 2019 Appropriations Bill. Ministers of the respective ministries and support staff will be questioned by members of parliament. It is early days how the new format will improve government, however, it must be said that hearing directly from government officials is a refreshing change from the annual humdrum of ministers spouting tired talking points.

    Dictatorship & Information Management

    @ Donna

    You asked and I quote

    “…She is collecting my personal information how? I am watching my television. How exactly is she gathering my information?…”

    In the section that follows, I am going to reach out to more prescient circumstances to explain the Mugabe phenomenon to you and other people here.

    You need to take note of the use of “people” and not sheeple and the content that follows here.

    I know that you have no idea about how dictators control, gather, and utilize information against its citizenry.

    In fact your question is so far left field that I am frightened.

    I fear that if, you as a part of the people, haven’t got one iota of understanding about remote mining of your hard drive, tapping of your phone, geo positioning to track where you congregate and with who coupled with I2 output from the police digital tracking, I dun know that the battle for the sheeple is going to be ten times worse.

    To even spend time answering Robert Goring and explain the methodology simultaneously deployed for the sheeple is an exercise dat de ole man ent got de time for.

    But I going spend a few seconds with you.

    Mugabe is spending time sweetening wunna up while she accesses wunna hard drives via remote electronic incursion

    It is a strategy of dancing with wolves, to identify who her opposition is AND TO ISOLATE US.

    This is the Way to Create the Mechanisms of Dictatorship

    She first needs to identify her opposition for her to prevent or counter the burgeoning opposition that will dislodge her regime.

    Mugabe understands that her continuance and edification as a Dictator for Life is at jeopardy and her survival and that of the regime depends on lulling all wunna into a false sense of safety.

    You Donna need to understand that you are one of the few “dissident leaders” here with the grey matter to organize AND THEN ATTRACT other people to an anti Mugabe campaign

    You need to understand, like Mugabe does, the importance of being part of the route through which the masses obtain information, are informed about the regime, and decide finally that they MUST participate in a collective ANTI MUGABE action.

    There are those among us who can send you a file and, ONCE YOU CLICK IT, access to your hard drive is theirs

    If you doubt me Donna ASK THE HONOURABLE BLOGMASTER

    Test me Donna, submit a simple question for the Blogmaster and if he tell you no AND DENIES DE OLE MAN ‘s claim well then

    “Inside the US’s First Cannabis Chemistry Degree
    Article Feb 15, 2019

    Leo Bear-McGuinness
    Science Writer

    It was once unthinkable. In years gone by, academics would have scoffed at the idea. A cannabis degree? So students can study the very drug that has plagued campuses for decades? Highly unlikely.

    But attitudes change. In the past two decades, pieces of progressive cannabis legislation have swept the nation, creating a booming industry in their wake. And now cannabis, the once vilified contraband of universities everywhere, is stepping into the syllabus.

    From fall 2019, students can study the US’s first degree program focused exclusively on cannabis chemistry. Far from a stoner novelty course, the degree at Lake Superior State University, Michigan, will teach undergraduates the organic chemistry and instrumental analysis knowledge needed to gain employment in the country’s expanding cannabis analysis sector.

    Indeed, as the cannabis industry is expected to create nearly 500,000 jobs by 2022, it’s a wonder no university did it sooner.

    “Because of the legalization of cannabis, both here and in Canada, we knew there were going to be a lot of people working in this field, so there was going to be a big demand for campus work,” says R. Adam Mosey, PhD. As an associate professor at LSSU’s chemistry and environmental science department, Mosey is one of the key organizers of the new degree.

    We figured that there was no one really training these analysts, not from an academic standpoint,” he told Analytical Cannabis. “So having a university developed program would be a really good fit for the industry.”

    Of course, the degree wasn’t a requirement for the thousands of analytical chemists already employed in the cannabis industry, most of whom were trained through standard analytical chemistry honors. But the LSSU team stress that as the industry gets more competitive, graduates may need more specific cannabis skills to stand out.

    “If you look at traditional analytical chemistry courses, they learn instrumentation and you get to apply to different systems. Obviously, we still want our graduates to have that knowledge,” says Mosey.

    “But when these graduates want to get into the workforce, the employers might say they want someone who’s worked with the cannabis matrix before, because it’s a really tricky matrix to work with.”

    Consisting of flowers, concentrates, and numerous phytocannabinoids, the complexity of the cannabis matrix is regularly cited as one of the key challenges to developing new analytical methods. By getting to grips with this plant model early in their education, Mosey and his colleagues hope that their students will be better prepared for professional analyses. Especially as they’ll be studying the plant hands-on.

    “We’re trying to get all the legal paperwork in place so we can actually work with cannabis material, so once the students have a hand on the plant, they’ll be really ready for the workforce.”

    But, as the existence of a cannabis degree demonstrates, US marijuana legislation is changing rapidly. In LSSU’s state, Michigan, the drug became recreationally legal as recently as November 2018; regulated stores are expected to open in 2020. And like its more seasoned peers, such as California and Nevada, Michigan will undoubtedly further develop its own list of safety regulations. So, with new rules inbound, and other state legislation changing all the time, can a cannabis degree keep up?

    “We’re going to be looking at the regulations as they change,” confirms Mosey. “And we’re going to have a number of students also, since we’re on the Michigan/Canadian border, who’ll be coming from Canada, and their regulations are also completely different.

    “So while we’ll be focusing analytical chemistry and biochemistry, we’re also going to try to keep updating the course, to be in-keeping with regulations. As new pesticides need to be tested for, we want to be able to test for those, and more metals and mycotoxins. We definitely want to be at the forefront of showing students how to look for these.”

    As a once ‘underground industry’ with roots in the counterculture and the startup scenes, the cannabis sector can be an enticing field to work in. And with an average starting salary of $72,000, cannabis analyst jobs can certainly gain the interest of undergraduates. Which is why, even before the application opening date, the team at LSSU are optimistic about filling up their first class.

    “There has been a large amount of interest in terms of web traffic and inquires, even though it’s only been a few weeks,” says Steven Johnson, PhD, Associate Professor at LSSU. “The significance of that is very exciting.”

    But being on trend is one thing. Setting the trend is another. If a success, LSSU’s cannabis chemistry degree could go on to become one of the must-have qualifications in the industry. And with great success, come copycats.

    “I do believe this will be a trend in American universities, even other universities in Michigan,” says Mosey.

    “There have been a lot of rumors of universities looking into a very similar program, and I think this will be something that will be popping up again and again across the states.”

    LSSU’s Cannabis Chemistry is offered in baccalaureate and associate degrees. It will begin its first year this fall.”

I am talking about advanced study in POLICY and the Salemite is talking about undergraduate study in IT, just to TRY to once again prove she’s NOT bright and can only cut and paste. Who was it that was emphatic in their “profound” statement recently that technocrats were not responsible for government policy? Moreover, after slagging off Phds she turns around and post a cut&paste story that quotes a man with what? A PhD! By the way, there is a whole Cannabis Research Institute at UWI Mona and research at UWI Cave Hill about medicinal plants in Bdos looking at their potential pharmacological benefits. Just this month a graduate student did research on the use of cannabis in the treatment of temporal lobe epilepsy. Yes there’s a need for an enabling legislative framework and this was highlighted by the student’s research supervisor. The obvious opportunities available in marijuana research, however, do not make technology and innovation worthless. They are all necessary, can co-exist and in fact are connected strategically. So I don’t get your verbose response. When cornered the Salemite conflates.

    Let me see if i can explain this to you in simple terms.

    The graphic above is a tool which pemits political parties to “plot” residents DOWN TO THE HOUSEHOLD LEVEL.

    For the most part an adpet political scientist If i have access to your can take

    maps with voters
    overlays of voter boundaries (which can be gerrymandered)
    Anonymous Surveys WHICH ARE NOT REALLY ANONYMOUS

    and project constituency results based on these bits of information LIKE HOW DE OLE MAN DO WID ME 30-0 predictions for the BLP victory heheheheheh

    and Verla Depeiza’s victory for the DLP

    and Mia Mottley’s one term government

    Now, for the most part most f these outcomes are speulations UNLESS GUIDED BY MY CREATOR and YOURS

    but for despots what they do is not so guided

    One way through which this authoritarian regime of Mugabe is to try to enforce their will on the constituency baseby using various media, currently aided by the internat and cellular and landline systems, technology to monitor/influence euphemism to strong-arm an e-garrison mentality.

    You admit that you belong to the category of person who has difficulty understanding how direct and indirect control of your technology can be used.

    And therefore I will try to explain that I can ensure that I control you, through deciding what you see and also determine the extent of my control, by monitoring your other interactions.

    There is an algorithm that monitors which my tweets you retweet AND TO WHOM they are retweeted and the frequency of such retweet. Much like which article of propaganda you resend to your friends on Whatsapp. All this permits me, Charles Me Love you Long Time, to fine tune the above three numbered sentences to harvest additional atomic data into more predictive heat signatures”

    Then, depending on my walk throughs your neighborhoods, I will know who is a “Centre of Influence” in your district and who, by giving them a new house, or flatscreen TV, or IPAD, will translate into foot soldiers of my propaganda machine AND HOPEFULLY VOTES, notwithstanding CostULess’s experience with 007 decimals Bond

    Finally, you need to understand that EVEN THOUGH YOUR PHONE MAY BE ON THE HOOK, I can intercept your communications in your house and find out when you and your group of say, cricket lovers, what wanna are conversing about cricket or politics.

    You are old enough to remember Forbes Burnham of Guyana and the dangers of being reported as not having a picture in your house with comrade Forbes in the early 70”s

    You have to move out of the guarded environment of “smoke signals and a cord between two milk cans” and try to understand what dictatorship is and it’s tools.

    And why a man purported to have wiretapped the telephone of a Former Prime Minister ON THE INSTRUCTIONS OF HIS THEN BOSS, the ATTORNEY GENERAL, NOW PRIME MINISTER, is now being rehired as a consultant to the current Commissioner off Police BY THE SAME FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL.

    And Donna, given that you ent able to understand the tools of spying on your hard drive and cookies remember that censorship with dictatorships exist in China. Certainly all you have to do is remark on press freedom and how much democracy we have when you look at all the local newspapers sucking de botsie of Mugabe.

I keep asking, what is the expertise or experience of the BU “experts”, just talk nuff, cut and paste, oppose, post nuff wrong info, bandwagonism? Who actually worked in economic, social or any form of development policy–transportation, energy, climate resilience, heritage conservation, housing, green or social infrastructure, infrastructure funding, air quality, flooding, employment/training etc?

In the land of Oxbridge, the government in trying to reduce spending is proposing just over £1 billion per year in consultancy services. In Australia it was over $4B in 2017 and last year in NZ over $500M. In one instance in Singapore, a consultant was paid $4M to oversee a school construction programme. There were 104 advisers to the Conservative-Lib Dem Coalition govt in the UK. In 2017 there were 88. I guess all these Commonwealth countries’ governments were/are unable to run their respective countries because they hired advisers and consultants. SMFH!

Look at the nonsense of a response by Abigail. She points out that the UK population is 66M but ignores the 314 government MPs and 108 Ministers, including the 29 that attend Cabinet. Additionally, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have devolved parliaments, London has a Mayor (with appointed, paid “advisers”) and an Assembly of elected members, Manchester and Liverpool also have Mayors. Plus there is local government across the UK. Nonetheless, there are still currently 99 Special Advisers to the government (37 to the PM) being paid between £65,000 to £142,000 annually and a £1B budget for consultants. Are those 108 Ministers and their 200 plus party colleagues incompetent? Her argument would make some sense if she took all these variables into consideration then gave me a per capita spend and hiring.

  • Fact-the population is bigger as well as the number of MPs, ministers, consultants, advisers, layers of government and budgets for advisers and consultants. The smaller size of the population does not negate the need for assistance beyond the Cabinet, just at a reduced level–commensurately. The point remains–consultants and advisers are appointed by governments across the Commonwealth and it is not due to incompetence as you argued. The skills and knowledge required do not all reside in a Cabinet or in the civil service. This may even be more evident in societies, with small populations. Don’t you spend your entire time on BU trying to prove you should be in the Cabinet? You may have the last word, as it is useless debating with people who struggle to grasp the basic elements of a debate.#dunceinseason#egofowlism
