Dear UTech Jamaica Alumni

  • Would it help to boost your confidence, if you were sure you had a well crafted, value adding resume and/or LinkedIn Profile, which clearly and impressively answers the No. 1 question in a recruiter’s mind “What value will this candidate add to my organization?”
  • Would you feel more hopeful if you had someone to help you develop a job search or career management strategy so you could get on with your life…with better fit between who you are and what you do, plus better compensation-focus-joy-peace?
  • Would it mean a lot to you to be able to handle this…wait…period [wait to find a job, or wait to find a better job] without feeling fearful, angry, anxious and uncertain?

UTech Jamaica: Government in Danger of Botching NIDS by Prof. Paul Golding, Dean, COBAM November 29, 2017

Posted by utechalumni in UTech News.
add a comment

Politically , the Andrew Holness-led Government is making a real hash of the implementation of the national identification system (NIDS). A cursory review of the countries that have implemented NIDS indicates that there are some common concerns that citizens have prior to implementation. They include exactly what Jamaicans are concerned about: the potential threat to civil liberty, lack of confidence in the reliability and safety of the system, and a belief that they are quite simply unnecessary and irrelevant. Armed with this knowledge, good management and good politics suggest that the Government seeks to allay these real fears prior to implementation.

To exacerbate the situation, the actions in Parliament to push through this Bill, and the apparent waffling by the prime minister, create more fear — which the Opposition is likely to use to galvanise citizens against the NIDS. Jamaicans have strong cultural and religious objections to what is required in the NIDS, which are real, but generally unfounded. (more…)

UTech Jamaica: Taking justice reform to the next level, Article by Henry Lewis, Lecturer, FELS November 29, 2017

Posted by utechalumni in UTech News.
add a comment

The judiciary is one of the most important arms of government. Its chief mission is to resolve disputes in a just and timely manner to protect the rights and liberties of not some or those who can afford it, but of all, thereby facilitating the attainment of the rule of law. It performs this function by providing independent, non-political, accessible, and responsive fora for the resolution of matters of law.

I am not a lawyer nor am I a legal luminary, I am a behavioural scientist who has a deep interest in the well-being of nations and justice that has a direct link to well-being. I have been observing the Jamaican judiciary for the past 20 years, and I have concluded that Jamaican governments past and present have failed the Jamaican people. (more…)
