U.K. to create more jobs in Africa, Asia

working-overseas

The U.K. agency said it created 1.1 million jobs in Africa and Asia in 2012. The Chief Executive Officer of CDC, a British Government-owned development finance institution, Diana Noble, on Friday said

that the organization would create more jobs in Africa and Asia. 

 

Ms. Noble said in a statement in Lagos that the organization was satisfied with its businesses worldwide, and therefore, would increase the number of jobs it provided on the continents.

“CDC’s new strategy is focused on making investments to grow businesses and create more jobs in Africa and Asia.

“CDC wants to demonstrate to other investors that it is possible to invest successfully in harder places, where the private sector is weak and jobs are scarce,” she said.

Ms. Noble said that the number of jobs provided by CDC increased from 976,000 in 2011 to 1,109,000 in 2012.

“In 2013, we will build on these achievements to create more jobs at no cost to the taxpayer.

“CDC also plans to provide expansion to businesses and projects to support local employment,” she said.

New York City Subway Stations Just Got Free Wi-Fi and Cell Service

Going underground just got a little less scary; as of today, the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority is rolling out Wi-Fi and cell service to 30 stations across the city.

Previously, Wi-Fi was available at a handful of stations on the L and C/E lines, but starting today, it can be found at locations like Times Square, Columbus Circle and other stops on the West Side from 18th to 96th street in the from of free, corporate-sponsored Boingo hotspots. For those who want to check some texts as well, there will also be subterranean cell service, though for the moment that’s limited to those with AT&T or T-Mobile, but Verizon and Sprint are on the way.

And this is only the beginning. In phase two of the project, Wi-Fi and service will come to Queens and Midtown by 2014 with the Bronx and the East Side to follow. By 2016, the MTA says all stations will be hooked up. And if the service at the subway station I am posting this from is any indication, it looks like it’ll work just fine, if not quite amazingly. Bring on the future.
