12 communities selected to pilot e-Vermont project

first_imgA dozen rural communities across the state will receive digital tools and in-depth training as the initial participants in the new e-Vermont Community Broadband Project. The twelve will benefit from the expertise and resources of e-Vermont’s statewide partners as the local groups develop ways to take full advantage of the Internet for job creation, school innovation, providing social services, and increasing civic involvement. e-Vermont is a new, $3.8 million initiative to help rural Vermont towns take full advantage of the Internet and advance a wide variety of local needs including economic development, school innovation, job creation, downtown marketing, community engagement, and e-commerce.The 2010 communities (selected from over 40 applicants) are Brighton, Bristol, Canaan, Cambridge, Grand Isle County, Ludlow, Middlesex, Newport, Poultney, Pownal, Sunderland, and West Rutland. [1]“Vermonters have a long history of innovation and finding creative ways to meet our goals,” notes Project Director Helen Jordan. “e-Vermont will continue that tradition by bringing 21st century tools to these communities and nurturing the local development of model solutions we can adapt statewide.”e-Vermont is not stringing cable or fiber, but is working to make better use of broadband where it is available. An unprecedented network of partnerships will contribute to this two-year project.Each community will become part of the Front Porch Forum network, helping link neighbors to each other and local services.Digital Wish will bring technology into the classrooms (including a limited number of Netbook computers) and provide essential training for students, teachers, and parents.The Vermont Department of Libraries will work with local libraries to upgrade computer equipment and enhance e-servicesStudents in the Vermont State College system will offer classes and workshops in both public and home settingsThe Vermont Small Business Development Center will mentor businesses to help them increase efficiency and grow their market share through e-commerce.Best practices that come from these communities will be shared through statewide symposia, on-line applications, and conferences organized by The Snelling Center for Government. The Vermont Council on Rural Development is overseeing e-Vermont, and will bring its expertise in community organizing to help each town connect its schools, government, businesses, and nonprofit providers in new and exciting ways.e-Vermont updates are posted at www.vtrural.org(link is external).

Kwabena Yeboah sharply disagrees with Duncan’s Kotoko positivity

first_imgDavid Duncan admits he was highly impressed with his side’s performance despite their defeat to WAFA on Wednesday. But veteran broadcaster Kwabena Yeboah clearly did not see it that way.The Porcupines lost 1-0 courtesy Ashimeru Wajeed’s strike, meaning the Kumasi side are winless in two successive games. But the former Hearts boss refused to criticize his team, instead focusing on the high points.“We completely dominated this game. It was just a fluke goal that made us lose the match,” Duncan said post-game.“We wasted all the opportunities. We were discretional in front of goal, we did not look composed, we were not patient.”The coach further was also in an encouraging mood, especially considering the team played on an artificial surface in Sogakope.“I am highly impressed with the performance of my team, highly impressed. This is because we don’t play on artificial turfs but for those people who own the stadium and who play on this pitch week in week out, we outplayed them. Clearly, we outplayed [them].” “There was no opportunity created by WAFA , not a single one.”DisagreementThis assessment by the coach is the tangential opposite of what the veteran broadcaster witnessed.“My personal view is that [WAFA] deserve to win the game. They played some delectable football,” he said. “The first fifteen minutes, I thought Kotoko had two very good chances that they fluffed. That is as far as I remember. In terms of possession, in midfield, in terms of territorial dominance, WAFA were in total control.”The big question is: who do we believe?Per the match report of Asempa FM’s Frank Agyam, Kotoko were hopelessly outclassed. He said: “Kotoko had just a few chances at the start of the game, particularly for Dauda Mohammed, but he wasted it. That was about it. WAFA came back strongly and were in charge for most of the game.”It seems David Duncan watched a totally different game as the two pressmen did.Kotoko face leaders Ashantigold on Sunday. –CLICK TO READ: Matchday 23 game-by-game reviews–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
