Are you proud Mr director?

With all due respect my question goes directly to the director of Lands and survey, are you proud of the work flow? strategy? people's satisfaction? anything?

In my life I had to do many things with many governmental and private sectors, I had some really good experiences and some less but it has never been aggressively bad as my experience with lands and survey today.

I remember back in 1997/8 we needed to call the civil defence many times because my grandmother medical condition were critical and I remember that it was like matter of scratching Aladdin lamps, just call count to oh nothing and they will be there with a big smile on their faces to help you, neighbours called them once because their kitty stuck on the top of a high tree and they couldn't rescue it themselves so they called the civil defence and they were more than glad to help.

Civil defence people are just great, in term of service and morals and you know what? they don't charge* you for their service and they do it with a big smile and high proficiency, so why things that you pay for just doesn't work ?

A mass lay off in such departments, restructure, getting FULLY computerized (GOD it's 2007!) would help.




* I'm not sure how taxes work but even if we are being charged for such service, we are not being over charged and we are receiving quality service.
** I'm not in mood to blog, talk, socialise but I was forced to blog today after struggling to get things done in the right way today.

  3. Let me tell you something. I can name 5 people other than my self who can do business process re-engineering as well as build an IT infrastructure to support it for a little more than hardware cost.

    The problem with our government is that we have a talent for placing the wrong man in the wrong place, with a great degree of accuracy and efficiency.

القضاء: لا دليل على أن مقتحمي الكونغرس خططوا لقتل مشرعين

أكد محققو وزارة العدل الأمريكية أنهم لم يجدوا حتى الآن أي دليل على أن أنصار دونالد ترامب الذين هاجموا مبنى الكونغرس الأسبوع الماضي خططوا لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم. يأتي ذلك في الوقت الذي أُوقفت فيه الشرطة، الجمعة، رجلا مسلّحا في واشنطن خلال محاولته عبور إحدى نقاط التفتيش في محيط مبنى الكونغرس حيث ستقام الأربعاء مراسم تنصيب جو بايدن. في ذات الوقت أفادت شبكة NBC الأمريكية، بأن مكتب التحقيقات الفيدرالي يحقق في إمكانية تمويل حكومات أو جماعات اقتحام مبنى الكونغرس. وقالت مصادر للشبكة: "المكتب يحقق في مدفوعات "بيتكوين" بقيمة 500 ألف دولار، يبدو أنه تم تحويلها من قبل مواطن فرنسي، لشخصيات ومجموعات رئيسية يمينية قبل اندلاع أعمال الشغب". وفي جلسة استماع في محكمة أريزونا بشأن اعتقال أحد مثيري الشغب جاكوب تشانسلي الذي يؤمن بنظرية المؤامرة ومن أتباع الحركة اليمينية المتطرفة "كيو-آنون"، تراجع المدعون الفيدراليون عن اتهامات سابقة بأن أنصار ترامب كانوا يخططون "لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم" في هجوم السادس من كانون الثاني/ يناير في واشنطن. ع

Saddam's novel to be published next week

AMMAN, Jordan: Saddam Hussein's family will publish next week a novel written by the ousted Iraqi leader before the US-led war on Iraq, his daughter said on Friday. "Ekhroj minha ya mal'un" whose title could be translated into "Get out, damned one" tells the story of a man called Ezekiel who plots to overthrow a town's sheik, but is defeated in his quest by the sheik's daughter and an Arab warrior. The story is apparently a metaphor for a Zionist-Christian plot against Arabs and Muslims. Ezekiel is meant to symbolize the Jews. Raghad Saddam Hussein said her father finished the novel on March 18, 2003 -- a day before the US-led war on Iraq began -- and had expressed a wish to publish the book under his name. The three other novels he wrote were simply signed "Its author." "It was my father's will to publish this book," Raghad said in a telephone interview.
