Ministry of Sports Employees Receive IPAD Tablets

Ministry of Sports Employees Receive IPAD TabletsAntigua St. John's - Employees at the Ministry of Sports were the first set of public servants to be allocated IPAD air tablets and internet connectivity under the Human Entrepreneurship and Assistive Resource Technologies (HEART) project.

The initiative which is spearheaded by the Ministry of Telecommunications, Science and Technology in collaboration with Telecoms Company LIME will result in IPAD Air tablets along with high speed internet being allocated to established and non-established civil servants.

According to Minister of Telecommunications, Science and Technology Dr. Hon. Edmond Mansoor, in excess of one thousand devices will be allocated to civil servants over the next few weeks.



“As a government we have a very simple ethos when it comes to technology. We want to make it affordable and we want to put it in the hands of very ordinary people.  We have been very good in bringing technology to the doorsteps of ordinary men and women.” Dr. Mansoor said.

Minister of State with responsibility for Sports and Recreation, Hon. Mervyn Richards was delighted by the handover.

He noted that the ministry welcomes any support that will help it to carry out its mandate in an efficient and productive manner. Ranging from tennis and running to basketball and professional soccer, Richards noted there are many apps available for download that encourages good health and well being while creating opportunities for fun, fitness, and friendship.

Officials from the Ministry of Telecommunications also carried out an onsite device familiarization session with the employees where they were encouraged to check out the numerous sports related apps available.

Sports? Seriously?

I guess we now know why there's no functioning National Library.

Where are the gifts for the poor and needy? Children are going to bed hungry. The St John's Health Center is a disgrace because only the poor use it. Stop the politicking with all these before elections presentations. Both political parties are a failure to the needy in this country. PLEASE UPGRADE THE HEALTH CENTER. It is screaming for attention. It needs proper bathrooms and computers also.

Why not subsidize the price and make them affordable to all. How will we dispose all these electronic pollutants at the end of the day. Ahhh any thought to that yet.
