Zantovsky, who served in Washington, D.C., from 1992 to 1996, will speak on “NATO Enlargement, Bond Between the U.S. and Europe: The Czech Perspective.” The address is sponsored by the School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Center for Mass Media Research.

The senator’s appearance in Boulder, along with three other members of the committee, is part of the group’s tour of Colorado and other points in the United States. The Czech Republic, along with Hungary and Poland, was officially invited to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in July. Before being appointed ambassador in 1992, Zantovsky was press secretary and spokesperson for President Václav Havel, a post he held for nearly two years. Last year Zantovsky was elected chairman of the Civic Democratic Alliance, a junior partner in the Czech Republic’s coalition government of Premier Václav Klaus. The other members of the delegation are Jan Krámek of the civic Democratic Party, Milan Spacek of the Christian Democratic Union and Vitezslav Matuska of the Czech Social Democratic Party, the largest opposition party in the Czech parliament.

From 1980, he worked as a free-lance translator and author, translating into Czech more than 30 works of contemporary English and American fiction, poetry and drama by writers such as James Baldwin, Nadine Gordimer, Joseph Heller, Norman Mailer and Toni Morrison. In 1988 he became Prague correspondent for the British news agency Reuters. At the time of Czechoslovakia’s Velvet Revolution in November 1989, he became a founding member of the Civic Forum, an umbrella organization which coordinated the overthrow of the Communist regime, and later its press spokesperson.last_img read more

Ambassador Saunders Civil Service Week 2011 Message

first_imgAdvertisements Ambassador Saunders Civil Service Week 2011 Message Foreign AffairsNovember 21, 2011 RelatedAmbassador Saunders Civil Service Week 2011 Message FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail I welcome this opportunity to extend greetings on the occasion of this year’s Civil Service Week which is being observed during the period 20th – 26th November 2011 under the theme: “Civil Servants – Repositioning for National Development”. If ever there was a need for repositioning of the civil service, indeed, the entire Public Service, no period has greater claim to that imperative than the present. The past year has been the most eventful in recent memory. With the transformation processwell advanced, the words re-evaluate, re-newal, re-engineering, re-invent, re-align have taken root in the consciousness of all civil servants. As we seek to re-shape the reality of Jamaica toward the vision of “the place of choice to live, work, raise families and do business”, let us commit to higher levels of professionalism and service.We must remain resolute and, through collective effort, translate the needs of the population we serve into more effective policies and programmes. Each of us, in re-positioning to support national development, should seize every opportunity created for personal development through education and training. We need to undertake “re-tooling” of our individual skill-sets and competencies. The environment in which we operate demands improved productivity, service excellence and sustained effectiveness with less financial resources. This call for us to do more with less requires innovative and creative solutions and approaches. Success is our only option. As we start the celebrations to commemorate Jamaica’s Fiftieth Anniversary of Independence, it is apt to recall the words of John F. Kennedy, “… let every public servant know,whether his post is high or low, that a man’s rank and reputation… will be determined by the size of the job he does… LET THE PUBLIC SERVICE BE A PROUD AND LIVELY CAREER…”. I commend all those being recognized at the Long Service Awards Ceremony, and I thank all those involved in the planning and execution of Civil Service week. I encourage all Public Servants to participate fully in the week of activities.center_img RelatedAmbassador Saunders Civil Service Week 2011 Message RelatedAmbassador Saunders Civil Service Week 2011 Messagelast_img read more

Is It Time?

first_imgHUMBLE, Texas – Earlier this week, Rory McIlroy addressed a room full of reporters and said what everyone else seemed to be thinking in the wake of another Tiger Woods injury: The sport is waiting for another dominant player, a guy who can stamp his authority on the game. Matt Kuchar, the 11th-ranked player in the world, must have been listening. This week he has served up a 66-67-68 to seize control of the Shell Houston Open. OK, so Kuchar – and even the mercurial Sergio Garcia, who is four shots behind – are probably not capable of moving the needle like Tiger, Phil and Rory. But hey, it’s a start. The PGA Tour has endured a months-long power outage. Only one player, Zach Johnson, has won an event while ranked inside the top 10 in the world. Jason Day is the only other top-15 player to win an event this season. “There’s a lot of depth in the game of golf,” Kuchar said. There’s little doubt that parity is the PGA Tour’s new reality, but it poses a problem for both the casual fan, who has little interest in rooting for the 100th-ranked player in the world, and the elite player, who prefers having a dominant stud to measure his game against. Shell Houston Open: Articles, videos and photos “Golf in general is very wide open at the moment, and I think a few guys need to put their hands up and try and be the dominant players in this game, because that’s what people like to see,” McIlroy said. “Me personally, as a fan of golf, it would be nice to see someone sort of break away.” Kuchar might not break away from the pack, but he’s a six-time winner and a world-class player – he can ascend to No. 5 with a win Sunday – so at least he offers hope that the stars are emerging from early-season hibernation. He’s in the final group for the second week in a row, and the final-round forecast here calls for showers and thunderstorms, not the 25-mph winds that derailed his bid to win last Sunday in San Antonio. That day Kuchar was tied for the lead with nine holes to play but stumbled home with a 75. Steven Bowditch, the 339th-ranked player in the world, crawled across the finish line with a closing 76. Of his final-round score in tough conditions, Kuchar said, “I’m not ashamed.” Maybe not, but that big number continued a disturbing trend for the game’s best players. Bubba Watson blew the Phoenix Open. McIlroy crumbled on the final day at the Honda. No. 2 Adam Scott punted away a touchdown lead at Bay Hill. And that’s just this season. These final-day stumbles appear to be part of a larger issue: Since the start of the 2013 season, only 26 of the 57 third-round leaders have gone on to win. Viewed another way, players have found more success while trailing heading into Sunday than leading. That makes you appreciate Tiger’s mind-boggling closing rate – 58 of 65 in PGA and European tour events – a little more, no? When asked what that recent inability to close can be attributed to, Kuchar replied: “Probably some hard golf courses and hard conditions. Trying to beat the best in the world. It’s not an easy thing. You hope to get as big a lead as possible.” Kuchar has accomplished that, though he gave one back on his final hole of the day, missing a 5-foot par putt. It was one of only two blemishes on a windy, unseasonably cool afternoon, his 4-under 68 matching the best round of the day. Only six players are within seven shots of his lead. “Having a four-shot lead is a great position to be in,” said Kuchar, who has converted two of four chances when holding the 54-hole lead. “(Sunday) I think I’ll just go out and try to turn the four-shot lead into a five-shot lead and see if I can keep going.” Kuchar is golf’s most consistent performer, with a Tour-best 42 top 10s since 2010. But he’s likely not the sport’s next dominator, the guy who will stamp his authority on the game. That’s OK. This is a start. Perhaps the best players are emerging just in time for major season.last_img read more

We are handling China well

first_img1962 was a sad chapter in the history of India. This time in that year, the Chinese army made incursions in our territory. Whether or not they had any territorial objectives, the fact is that they intended to drive home a lesson. Reading in between the lines of various analyses conducted by military strategists and historians have thrown light on one point. The Indian mindset post independence was that we were well on the road to development and all set to emerge as a regional power. Around the same time, China that had communism take over her reins thought likewise. The Indian political leadership believed that the too countries were identical in terms of power and status; and that none could outdo the other. The communist leadership of China, by inflicting a humiliating defeat on India sought to knock down that thought process.The last fifty eight years have seen India make development on all fronts; and so has China. While in 1962, the competition was not discernible (to India for certain), today, China is seeing it more perhaps then. Therefore, if the two countries are viewed as equal by India, it would certainly not be acceptable to China. The hard truth is that India has developed, China has made giant strides. In the light of the foregoing, the premise that both the countries are equal will not be pragmatic. Recent incursions in Ladakh by the Chinese army and the resultant standoff serves to convey the same message, except that we have Modi in place of Nehru and Xi Jinping in place of Chou En Lai.The second half of the last century witnessed a generally equal economic growth by both India and China, this notwithstanding that China had suffered tremendously on account of communism. Displaying a strategic vision, China improved upon her status and standing by improving ties with America externally and carrying out sweeping domestic reforms. All this time, the economy of India was gaining thrust and force; and was greater than that of China. But China would not see in India a country that could be seen as an equal; this viewpoint hardened in the last five years.Like Nehru who fell into the trap of ‘Hindi-Chini Bhai Bhai’, based on aged old cultural and historical ties, Narendra Modi too made a similar blunder. He had hoped that Xi Jinping would also respond favourably. The hug diplomacy evidently failed, but at a time when India was better poised than in 1962. Today, a much superior military and diplomatic environ prevails, quite unlike what was fifty eight years ago. India’s efficient and professional military structure stands strengthened with her membership of the Quad.India has finally realised that there is no shortcut to becoming a world power and that to deal with hostile neighbours, alliances are necessary. However, in this process, the need to boost our economic capability needs no emphasis. As of now, India is focussed on such an approach. The foregoing, together with adequate military posturing has sent appropriate signals to China already.last_img read more
