Photo credit: spiceislander.comST GEORGE’S, Grenada — The Grenada Informer newspaper has apologized to Peter David, a senior official of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), over a headline printed in its July 13 edition.On page one of this weekend’s issue of the newspaper, Grenada Informer expressed deep regrets for “any inconvenience, embarrassment, or considerable distress caused to Hon. Peter David by the misleading headline, and therefore sincerely apologizes accordingly.”The offending headline read, “Peter David admits to conspiracy against leader.” It was accompanied by a photo of David, the NDC general secretary who resigned from government as tourism minister in April.The Grenada Informer reported that David had revealed that unnamed members of the NDC made attempts almost a decade ago to remove Tillman Thomas as party leader.David, who disclosed the information in a GBN Television interview, said he successfully opposed and helped stop the attempted removal of the Thomas as NDC leader.In its apology, Grenada Informer said it never was its intention “to convey to its readership and the public, the impression that Hon. Peter David was himself involved in any conspiracy against the Prime Minister and leader of the National Democratic Congress.”According to the paper, “the words ‘admit to’, in the headline, were meant to be interpreted as ‘aware of”’.Grenada Informer said it “retracts the headline and undertakes not to repeat those allegations in that form or otherwise.”David, who is out of the country visiting family in the United States, was unavailable for comment.However, informed sources close to him say that he was bombarded by numerous phone calls from relatives, friends and supporters, who were angry at the headline that Grenada Informer itself agreed was misleading.It is believed that the matter was taken up with the newspaper, on David’s behalf, by a prominent St George’s lawyer.Caribbean News Now Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

SaaS grows with 5 Cs

first_imgSaaS architecture and benefits defined. SaaS (Software as a Service) is the delivery of applications or services over the Internet.  According to, “Growth trends for SaaS are strong” and Gartner Inc. “has predicted that the SaaS market will grow more than 22 percent per year and that by 2011, 25 percent or more of new software systems will be delivered as SaaS applications.”With an uptick in adoption of SaaS, it is important to review why this service might be better than “shrink-wrap” service, where the customer buys, installs and maintains software itself.In an article titled, “The Five C’s of SaaS” author John Szczygiel, executive vice president of Brivo Systems LLC, defines the 5 C’s as the way that SaaS addresses the needs of consumers when it comes to “change, compliance, cost, continuity and coverage.” Szczygiel also delves into the potential impact of “Security as a Service” by exploring  the five areas of strategic importance for all organizations (5 C’s).If you are a software start-up, the SaaS delivery model should be a serious consideration. In order to better understand the basic architecture of SaaS and the 5C’s as they pertain to security, be sure to check out the full, thoughtful and well-written blog (link below).AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PrintPrintShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more
