In a statement issued by the party leader, McCartney says this does not represent a true democratic state, as the power remains “in the hands of the Prime Minister, who can choose to call it at a time pleasing to him or his party, without regard for the current state of the country.”McCartney expressed concerns over the date clashing with National Assessment Examinations and the disruptions students will face to facilitate the polls.  The DNA Leader echoed sentiments over May 10th polls clashing will the HMBS Flamingo Tragedy. He says it’s “a reminder that this Bahamaland is a place to be protected and defended, and its citizens deserve the opportunity to observe this event without distraction”.McCartney reminded the public of the Carnival date changes to accommodate the polls, but was later forced to be reinstated following public outcry.  He says under his party, calls continue to be made for fixed election dates as it will remove the element of surprise and allow for proper planning and execution of the electoral process.Story by: Kimberly Ramkhalawan#MagneticMediaNews#BahamasGeneralElection#May10thisdayinhistory#electiondateheldbyoneman Related Items:#BahamasGeneralElection, #electiondateheldbyoneman, #magneticmedianews, #May10thisdayinhistory DNA on Election Date The significance of this year’s election date – May 10th Recommended for youlast_img read more

And while that concept isn’t exactly new, the method of doing so certainly is: Microsoft is using drones to autonomously identify ideal locations for mosquito traps, as well as placing and retrieving them. After that, the mosquitos will be sequenced and their massive amounts of metagenomic data will be sorted with cloud computing.The hope? To find new strains of pathogens before they begin wreaking havoc, which will help us to prepare for potential outbreaks and maybe even develop cures.”We envision a worldwide system for collection and genomic analysis of mosquitoes, capable of detecting potential pathogens and their geographic spread, before they cause disease in the human population,” Microsoft Research’s Ethan Jackson wrote in a blog post.So far, the Project Premonition team has tested its concept in the Caribbean island of Grenada, but it’ll be interesting to see what sorts of insights they’ll find once it’s deployed further.last_img read more
