From the Blog ProPakistani: No Blackberry Services for Foreign Missions: PTA - No Blackberry Services for Foreign Missions: PTA is a post from: ProPakistani PTA has instructed cellular operators to stop BlackBerry services to foreign missions in the country amid concern about the security of the communications, reported Reuters and independently verified by ProPakistani through industry sources. Industry sources confirmed ProPakistani that cellular companies received letters from PTA in January 2011 for the suspension of Blackberry services to foreign missions. A source in one of cellular company, requesting anonymity, told ProPakistani that PTA had sent a similar directive some 10 months ago to all cellular companies. This recent letter (in fact 2 letters are sent in January 2010) are to make sure that no cellular company is providing the services to foreign missions. A highly placed source at PTA communicated ProPakistani that no cellular company can provide Blackberry services to foreign missions and in-bound roamers in first place, so any instruction for suspension of service is supposedly the re-enforcement practice. Source confirmed that a clause for this is in place when cellular company obtain the clearance certificate before providing blackberry services in the country. Industry sources revealed that despite the year ago directive, cellular companies were providing blackberry services to foreign embassies and high commission staff. PTA spokesperson was not available for the comment. Following is what Reuter reported over the issue: Pakistani industry and government officials say that the government had never allowed BlackBerry services to foreign missions and inbound roamers when the services were launched in Pakistan in 2005. The government also initially banned the more secure BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) services in Pakistan. BES allows users to send and receive secure email and messages, which is difficult for governments to intercept and read. However, the instructions have since been flouted by all five Pakistani mobile operators. It was not clear why the government allowed them to do so or why it was acting now to enforce the restrictions. An industry source said that the government had asked all operators in the country to enforce the restrictions. "The most critical issue is the provision of BlackBerry services to the foreign embassies, missions and high commissions," said the source. "Therefore, all the operators have agreed to close all BlackBerry connections provided to them by January 31," he said, adding discussions would be held with the PTA to gain more time on the provision of BES to local customers as well as BlackBerry services to incoming roamers. If fully enforced, the restrictions would mean no BlackBerry services for many of the multinational companies and aid groups, who use the BES service rather than the Blackberry Internet Service, or BIS, which is much less secure.

Zubaida Tariq

From the Blog ProPakistani: Do Not Use My Name In Text Messages: Zubaida Tariq - Do Not Use My Name In Text Messages: Zubaida Tariq is a post from: ProPakistani SMS (Short Message Service) is the easiest way of written communication among the users, where it is becoming a tool for disturbance at large as in the case of veteran and renowned cooking expert, Zubaida Tariq. Zubaida Tariq has expressed her resentment and mental uneasiness over the exchanged of fabricated SMS with indecent contents attributed to her tips and solutions of various problems. In a private channel's TV program recently, she denied that she had suggested any tips and formulas for foolish and inappropriate activities in the SMSes. Zubaida Tariq requested people to stop misusing her name in SMSes with inappropriate text. She said that she does not restrict people to have fun with them but they should respect their elders at least. The growing trend in the youth particularly and mobile phone user generally for disrespecting and ridiculed elders in the SMSes are not appropriate at any cost. A VAS expert, while speaking with ProPakistani. commented that content providers, who design and compose text messages for the cellular companies and SMS based websites are primarily responsible for this. However, it is almost impossible to track and convict anyone in this regards. Besides Ms Tariq, the great poet, Ahmed Faraz, has been making fun of by users of the mobile phone at large. If we can't respect our elders then how can we expect our next generation to respect us in future? The nation becomes prospers only if it pays reverence to their heroes and elders.

Reform Leader Asks Mubarak To Resign Too

From the Blog Speak Your Mind!!!: Reform Leader Asks Mubarak To Resign Too - Looking at the way things are going in Egypt right now, I really feel it is about time that Hosni Mubarak should leave and give the people some peace in their lives. It is actually quite astonishing how people are so greedy for power and position that they even sacrifice their own character, personality and principles just to stay in power and position. Naturally, mostly such people are hardly those that rule the hearts.  I for one can say a lot about such rulers because since I was born till date we have seen such political leaders in Pakistan but we don’t really know how to bring a balance here. However, things are not the same everywhere else. Other Muslim nations have taken a stand to get rid of selfish dictators. First it was Tunisia and now Egypt where people are tired of monarchies and dictatorships for lifetime – rulers that don’t do much for their people and just want to stay for power.  On Sunday, Nobel Peace Laureate, Mohamed ElBradei also came upfront at Tahrir Liberation Square in Cairo and demanded for the resignation of Hosni Mubarak along with thousands of protestors who have decided to not stop their march defying the curfew that Mubarak has ordered. It seems that ElBradei is going to lead this movement and he is chosen because he is person who is more acceptable to the Western world. ElBradei, however, also made it clear that America should mind its business and doesn’t feel USA is credible enough to sort our affairs. “You are the owners of this revolution. You are the future,” ElBaradei told the crowd after nightfall. “Our essential demand is the departure of the regime and the beginning of a new Egypt in which every Egyptian lives in virtue, freedom and dignity.” Let’s just hope that this matter is resolved and Hosni Mubarak, who perhaps planned to stay in power till his last breath decides to leave before more people are hurt in this situation. People of Egypt are tired of unemployment, rising prices, corruption and unfair elections whereby no other person can come into power. . Read Full PostComments

Knowledge for Development – Where does Pakistan Stand?

From the Blog ProPakistani: Knowledge for Development – Where does Pakistan Stand? - Knowledge for Development – Where does Pakistan Stand? is a post from: ProPakistani Policy makers are developing strategies to maintain and enhance their position in the new knowledge-based economy era. World Bank Institute is supporting an initiative called Knowledge for Development (K4D) Program to help countries identify challenges and opportunities they face in making this transition towards a knowledge-based economy. In this regard an interactive tool known as Knowledge Assessment Methodology (KAM) is developed to assess the present position of a specific country with regards to this transition. The KAM consists of 109 structural and qualitative variables for 146 countries to measure their performance on the 4 Knowledge Economy (KE) pillars: Economic Incentive and Institutional Regime, Education, Innovation, and Information and Communications Technologies. Variables are normalized on a scale of 0 to 10 relative to other countries in the comparison group. The KAM also derives a country's overall Knowledge Economy Index (KEI) and Knowledge Index (KI). The benchmarking exercise performed here compares Pakistan with the similar countries such as Sri Lanka, Egypt and Indonesia. A general comparison of where we were in 2000 and where we are now is also made for interest of the reader. Though we may not yet be sure as of what extent the decision makers of our economy are attentive to such International assessment benchmarks and observe what directions are required to compete with global arena. The Knowledge Economy Index (KEI) is an aggregate index that represents the overall level of development of a country or region in the Knowledge Economy. It summarizes performance over the four knowledge economy pillars, takes into account whether the environment is conducive for knowledge to be used effectively for economic development. The below table compares the KEI for Pakistan along with other selected developing countries between year 2000 and 2009 -2010. On a positive note, Pakistan has shown a good progress of all during last nine years. Pakistan's KEI for the most recent year (2009-2010) is 2.34 whereas the world average for KEI is 5.95. If we compare the economy with the World Banks' income group of lower middle income economies (we fall in the same group), Pakistan is again on a lower side. The average KEI for lower middle economies presently is 3.78. Pakistan's KEI has risen from 1.89 since 2000 to 2.34 in 2009, a positive 0.45 change rate. However, overall KEI still stands lowest among the regional countries like India, Sri Lanka. By using the tool, we can compare the country's performance for the four individual pillars of the knowledge based economy. A detail comparison between 2000 and 2009 above shows that there has we have progressed in all index pillars, especially the ICT. The boom of mobile services along with increase in Internet penetration has assisted in mounting our position in global ICT stage. The alarming situation is highlighted by the education pillar showing a mere increase of 0.01 in nine years. Education is considered as one of the primary social factor for future growth of a nation, in our case we are lacking behind quite deficiently. Let's hope the recent education policy announcement may bring very much required changes. In view of the above characteristics of the knowledge economy and their impact on our economic and social space, that new thinking is required by policy makers, private sector executives and knowledge workers alike at all levels local, regional and national. Some of the major areas of improvements required such as; improve access to higher education, enhance skills and technology at all levels from the school to university, build S&T and R&D manpower by shifting the mix of social sciences and scientific / technical studies, monitoring the long term assimilation and internal sustainability of enhanced skills and provision of financial incentives for private sector to invest in R&D and innovation. Spotlight: Pakistan's economic and institutional regime has changed significantly over the last decade, tariff and non-tariff barriers have shown improved score as well as the regulatory quality has improved. There has been a downfall in overall rule of law. The KEI for the innovation has decreased which shows a thought of worries as innovations lead the economies more towards knowledge paradigm. In education , Pakistan has significantly lost the position. Adult literacy rate has decreased but the gross secondary enrollment has improved. Concerning information infrastructure , Pakistan has improved less than other countries in the world in terms of total telephones per 1,000 people and computers per 1,000 people whereas Internet Users per 1,000 people has increased.

Telenor Decides to Give VimpelCom a Legal Fight

From the Blog ProPakistani: Telenor Decides to Give VimpelCom a Legal Fight - Telenor Decides to Give VimpelCom a Legal Fight is a post from: ProPakistani VimpelCom announced today that it received a notice of arbitration from Telenor, against proposed 6 billion dollar deal deal with Wind Telecom S.p.A., to enforce its alleged pre-emptive rights under the VimpelCom shareholders agreement because it believes the Transaction is not a Related M&A Transaction. The VimpelCom Supervisory Board decided at its January 16, 2011 meeting that the Transaction constitutes a Related M&A Transaction and consequently the VimpelCom shareholders agreement does not provide pre-emptive rights to Telenor. In the notice, Telenor requested that VimpelCom adjourn the special general meeting of VimpelCom shareholders scheduled for March 17, 2011 and postpone the January 31, 2011 record date for the SGM until after the arbitration panel has reached a decision on the claim. Earlier, VimpelCom board gave approval for the said deal and rest was to be decided in shareholders meeting on March 17th, 2010. Reuters recently reported that Telenor has apparently failed to get support from shareholders and is short of the votes it needs on March 17 to nullify the deal. Telenor has 36 percent of Vimpelcom's voting stock while Altimo owns 44.7 percent. To be certain of rejecting the bid for Wind, Telenor must be backed by 72 percent of the remaining shareholders, who jointly own 19.3 percent of votes. Aside from the shareholder views, sources familiar with the situation and analysts expect the vote to go in favor of the Russian company and its top shareholder, a company controlled by Russian billionaire Mikhail Fridman. A takeover of Wind is backed by Vimpelcom management, the Russian government, and Fridman's Altimo group. The deal with Egyptian tycoon Naguib Sawiris would give Vimpelcom control of mobile group Orascom and Wind Italy and make it one of world's largest mobile operators . Sawiris would get 30.6 percent Vimpelcom stake in return. But it comes with risks, including lack of clarity over Sawiris's prized Algerian unit, and it threatens to reignite a long-running conflict between Telenor and Altimo. Telenor said it saw “dirty tricks” in Vimpelcom and Altimo tactics to circumvent a shareholders agreement that would otherwise allow Telenor to take part in the share issue to Sawiris – an issuance that will dilute its influence. VimpelCom said that its management and Supervisory Board continue to believe strongly in the strategic rationale for the Transaction which will create a new global telecom player with significant scale and an attractive mix of developed and emerging market assets, well-positioned to realize profitable growth. If deal goes through, Telenor will be in danger to fall below a 25-percent ownership threshold in VimpelCom. That would dissolve a shareholders agreement with Altimo which gives Telenor three seats on the board and other rights.

What Do YOU Make?

From the Blog Power of Thought: The Teacher and A CEO: What Do YOU Make? - This touching story was forwarded to me by Mr. Khalid Jehangir of The Lyceum School . A Big Thank You to him. I quote: The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life. One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He argued, "What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?" To stress his point he said to another guest; "You're a teacher, Barbara. Be honest. What do you make?" Barbara, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, "You want to know what I make? (She paused for a second, and then began…) "Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could. I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor winner. I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents CAN'T make them sit for 5 without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental. You want to know what I make? (She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table) I make kids wonder. I make them question. I make them apologize and mean it. I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions. I teach them to write and then I make them write. Keyboarding ISN'T EVERYTHING. I make them read, read, read. I make them show all their work in maths. They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator. I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know about English while preserving their unique cultural identity. I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe. Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life (Barbara paused one last time and then continued.) Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant. You want to know what I make? I MAKE A DIFFERENCE. What do you make Mr. CEO? His jaw dropped, he went silent. THIS IS WORTH SENDING TO EVERY TEACHER, EVERY CEO, AND EVERY PERSON YOU KNOW. Even all your personal teachers like mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, coaches, and others. A profound answer! Unquote Point to ponder: Are YOU making a difference? Dare to dream. Follow your dreams. Make a difference. Leave a legacy. Have a remarkable life. Nuruddin Photo courtesy: http://kevinmartineau.blogspot.com . Read Full PostComments
