Defect in Automated Fingerprint Identification System
KUWAIT CITY, Aug 16: About 220 scholarships have been reserved, mostly for non- Kuwaitis, in Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET), reports Al-Anba daily quoting informed sources.
They indicated that they are expecting the announcement concerning the scholarships to be made in October, adding that the applicants will be admitted in the second academic year and their names will be submitted directly to the Deanship of Admission and Registration.
Meanwhile A number of employees of Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) complained about a defect in the the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS), reports Al-Shahed daily.
They said the mistake is a 15-minute time difference in the device; for instance, the device shows 2:45 pm when it is 3 pm, because of which they had to wait until the time is 3pm on the device out of fear of being held accountable for leaving early.
Furthermore At a time the consumers are waiting for the price list of sacrifice animals for Eid Al-Adha, middlemen are scurrying to hoard sheep daily in a bid to sell the sacrifice at higher prices one day before Eid to earn more profits, reports Al-Rai daily.
The daily observed the activities of middlemen at the Sheep Market in Jahra Governorate – one of the big sheep markets in the country. One of them told the daily that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Jordan supply the biggest number of sacrifice animals.
The sheep market in Jahra Governorate currently sells sacrifice animals at moderate prices as a result of abundant supply but there are no customers as most people prefer to buy one day before Eid.
