Mi like your originality. You let me down big time

C is an imperative procedural language. It was designed to be compiled using a relatively straightforward compiler to provide low-level access to memory and language constructs that map efficiently to machine instructions, all with minimal runtime support.

Despite its low-level capabilities, the language was designed to encourage cross-platform programming. A standards-compliant C program written with portability in mind can be compiled for a wide variety of computer platforms and operating systems with few changes to its source code.

----source Wikipedia


You forget to list your source. LOL!!

If you think this is an effective point you’re more of a dummy than I figured.

You’re trying to change the argument with a dummy red herring non issue because you’ve been caught lying yet again - Dat nah werk yuteman

LOL!!!!!!!!!!! Plagiarism? You're now confirmed to be more than a dummy

Yuteman this is an open social forum with all manner of posts routinely lifted from anywhere without attribution - as this is definitely not an academic forum. Plagiarism arises when one claims someone else's work as one's own - I made no such claim. I posted a crowd-sourced piece which showed your ignorance of the status of C.

Looks like you were shamed to be exposed as so ignorant and resorted to this nonsensical red herring about plagiarism .

As to your lying ways I'm not referring to nor concerned with your claims about "doing C" or receiving some ridiculous award. Along with your claims to have been an "economics tutor" I found your statement about "doing C" laughable. Your posts on economics are worthy of a mediocre HS student

You lie when you claim to know that C has 21st century applications as you'd dismissed it hours before as being a 1990s relic. Your ignorance on the status of the language is plain as day..as pointed out by USAF.

Again - it's no biggie to be ignorant of the status of a software language. But lying about something when there's clear evidence that you're lying.. is a different animal. Then using a ridiculous claim about plagiarism to deflect attention away from your lie mek tings wussa

Try again but better next time

HEART is equipped to do relatively low level worker upgrades as in tourism. Any upgrade is a positive...but what JA needs to compete and develop itself in Century 21 is TRANSFORMATION of the workforce.

JA needs to get serious about that kind of transformational education investment in enabling 21st century skill sets - say over 15-20 years. Or, as seems likely, continue to be left behind progressive countries with our low skill industries - like tourism - leading the economy into merely limping along

These are just facts which a few have long known, some are just getting up to speed with....and the overwhelming majority are totally ignorant of.

How do you move people from no skill to highly skilled. That is the question.
Omar Davis tell you about the no skilled in his constituency.

Parents without skill usually don't spend enough effort to educate their kids. I don't agree with you that tourism is primarily a low skilled industry. They way were have been doing it or not doing is the main reason why were are not getting high yield and that is what Jangle is also saying.

In order to improve people in the short term HEART, CAP, community colleges etc. will have to be a part of any development. MOST country move from low skilled to medium skilled then highly skilled country. It is very hard to move from low to high. Not many countries do and most people who don't accept that are living a pipe dream.

This is the first time you are talking about a 20 year plan. That is realistic and a reasonable time to move a country forward. I have said OVER and OVER I am not against improvement in technology as you suggested, however we need improvement in other fields to maximize output, income and GDP. No country should depend on one or two industries when they have the potential for more.

Tourism is not the reason Jamaica is limping along. The reason Jamaica is limping along is the same reason we have a poor educational system. The reason is government, the reason is broken families, the reason is crime and corruption. You constantly blame tourism but without it Jamaica currently would have no GDP. HEART is not a final destination for most student who attend it is just a starting point. HEART is some case is offering associate degree. HEART is also used not only for professional skills but also personal development. Can you think of a better way to take kids out of a dangerous situation for a year and turning them around? Dr. Jeanette Dyer who had a baby in school and couldn't afford university as a kid is a graduate of HEART. She got an opportunity like so many other and she is now the head of HEART trust with a doctorate. There are many others like that.Like the US have BOCES and community colleges, we need this kind of institution the difference is HEART match you up with employers and provide stipend during training. Make no sense you knock HEART, it will always b
e around to serve a very useful purpose. The also have classes in Innovation and Technology at least one location I know. Not sure exactly the courses offered but they provide service to get people qualified.

HEART is a very useful institution which helps many people to upgrade themselves. No doubt about that. But HEART mainly provides remedial training to people whom have not received adequate education at the K-12 stage.

As currently configured HEART is unable to drive the innovation and human capital upgrade required to TRANSFORM Jamaica's workforce to compete effectively in this 21st century.

To be effective at transformation education at the critical primary through high school level has to be reformed and resourced in alignment with and serving the requirements of a strategic industrial development policy of GOJ.

Nothing else will work effectively to transform Jamaica's workforce

Useful effort from HEART but it's too little and too late to enable the required workforce transformation and 21st century competitiveness - unfortunately

The big investment in education must be at K-12 to have ANY chance at a fundamental workforce upgrade. When a big percentage of kids are well prepared at 18-19 y.o. with basic future-proof skill sets - that's what lays the basis of workforce transformation via further education in key disciplines. Nothing else will work effectively

It's not complicated yuteman

Sass - your lie -again- was pretending you knew the current relevance of C - after dismissing it a few hours before as a 1990s relic which you "did".

Your big achievement in receiving a computer disk is completely irrelevant and of zero interest

Maybe you have difficulty with logic. Seems you have a hard time understanding an issue that's so obvious and which has also been broken down for you many times

It nuh matter what you think, there will always be the need for 2nd chance for trade skills and others. What are you talking about? This HEART school has been there since the late 90s. They have specialized in computer related courses and certification done by a former relative of mine Mrs. Monica Stimpson and Dr. Joyce Robinson. The only thing they have done is update their certifications. HEART have also partnered with other schools and institutions get training from experts in this and other field. You need to learn a little more about it, it may help you in your quest for transformation. Contact Dr. Janet Dyer she will help. Selah.

Do you comprehend English yute? I acknowledged that HEART is useful.

We have different perspectives. You're content with incremental upgrades via HEART etc. You're entitled to that outlook especially as it's what most Jamaicans understand and believe in. Jamaicans do not generally know or care what an innovation eco-system looks like

My interest is revolutionary transformation via core education reforms which would bring JA fully able to compete in the 21st century....say in 15-20 years.

I'm not merely theorizing about this - I'm doing what I can to enable it. Other than internet yappin I don't know or care what you and your disk do... as long as you cut out the lying

Very sad indeed and the leaders of the industry in Jamaica seem to want to keep it that way. Its better for them.

Absolutely correct. Tourism interests also have huge control and influence over the media and politicians so their viewpoint is ALWAYS widely parroted. Hotel press releases are routinely published as “news”. Especially so in the Observer

No wonder that there’s zero critical thinking regarding tourism— just lemmings following whatever propaganda is pushed at them

Jamaica readies for COP 25

JAMAICA has started preparations to participate in the 25th session of the Conference of Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change that will be held in Santiago, Chile in December.

A pre-COP consultation was held on Wednesday at the AC Hotel by Marriott in Kingston, where several stakeholders discussed some of the actions that are taking place in the country, and the Caribbean region, in preparation for negotiations in the wider international arena.

http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/news/...1?profile=1373


For the first time, Chile will host this event, to which more than 25,000 participants are expected, and as hosts we are accepting all possible cooperation to help make this global meeting a historical moment for the country.

Graduates show pride in certification

More than 350 participants in the Jamaica Centre for Tourism Innovation (JCTI) training/certification programme travlled from the nooks and crannies of Jamaica beaming with pride, smiles, and a feeling of purpose to the Montego Bay Convention Centre for their recent graduation ceremony.

The applause grew louder, however, as the graduates collected their professional certificates of competence. This year’s graduation ceremony is the third of its kind since 2017, and just over 700 candidates participated in this year’s training exercise.

The objective of the programme forms part of a critical component of the Ministry of Tourism’s human capital-development strategy. It seeks to, in collaboration with international partners, provide professional training and certification to workers across various sectors in the tourism industry.

When I talk about diversifying and expanding Jamaica's tourism product, this is what I'm talking about. I've said on this forum that if the government invests in transforming Kingston into a cosmopolitan city, starting with the Kingston waterfront and work its way inward, using eminent domain to clear the many ghettos and shanties along the harbor, then the potential income earnings from foreign currency can outstrip and triple those from the three main tourist destination of Mobay, Negril and Ocho Rios.

Chile Scraps Asia-Pacific And Climate Summits Amid Protests

Chilean President Sebastián Piñera said Wednesday that he is cancelling two major international summits so he can respond to protracted nationwide protests over economic inequality that have left more than a dozen people dead, hundreds injured and businesses and infrastructure damaged.

The decision to call off the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation and UN global climate gatherings, planned for November and December, respectively, dealt a major blow to Chile’s image as a regional oasis of stability and economic development.

SCRAMBLE

Trade and climate negotiators scrambled to find new locations for their summits, aimed at resolving tariff-related conflicts between China and the US and finalising countries’ climate rules in advance of a bigger summit next year during which governments will be asked to commit to new emissions limits.

Digital Transformation Will Enhance Tourism

Tourism is one of the leading industries in Jamaica, with the country welcoming more than three million visitors annually, according to the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB).

“We are playing on the same stage with our global counterparts, but for us to remain competitive, we ought to be using technology to enhance our services,” said Dwayne Russell, general manager of MC Systems.

“Using the latest technology will not ‘water down’ the Jamaican experience. The technology will handle the operational processes so that industry staff can focus on the true quality of Jamaican hospitality to woo guests.”

He noted that the tourism landscape is extremely competitive, therefore, hoteliers and tour operators need to find ways to overcome the challenges they face, to maintain customer engagement, facilitate electronic payments and optimise their internal system.

Bartlett praises tourism workers
Tourism minister Edmund Bartlett has praised the more than 377,000 employees across the tourism sector for playing a vital role in Jamaica, which is now on track to secure more than a record four million visitors to Jamaica by year end.

“It is projected that by the end of this year, the island will welcome 4.303 million visitors and earn US$3.7 billion. That’s approximately 700,000 more visitors in the last three years and almost double the earnings in the same period,” Bartlett said.
