Anyolo asked the youth to use this time to strengthen their relationship with God as well as with parents, community members and friends.
“I urge you to maintain a close relationship with God through your prayers. Take this as an opportunity to strengthen your communication with members of your community.” He said
Anyolo, the Chairperson of the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB), advised the youth to keep themselves busy by reading helpful materials and using social media responsibly.
He spoke on Sunday during the Holy Mass at the Holy Family Basilica aired on KBC Channel 1.
Recently, the Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha announced that schools will remain closed until 2021 with the expectations that infections will have reduced.
Consequently, KCPE and KCSE exams will not be held this year which means each child will remain in their respective class.

What must you know about becoming a skilled remote worker?
Remote work is recognized as a full-time, project-based, or part-time job that a person does from outside the office of a company. So, it is meant a person can work right from his home, the beach, a coffee shop, car, or even a Coworking space. You have to do a job using your tablet, smartphone, or desktop. However, you will be needed to have a high-speed internet connection.
The rules of turning into an experienced remote worker
Set down some enforceable and clear rules
You can get everyone by setting down some rules and these rules must endorse accountability, ease worries, and also ensure visibility around a fresh system. The most important thing is these rules must be enforced.
Adapt your style of management for catering to the circumstances
This alteration does not become obvious by the performance of the employees only as it also needs a huge alteration in the managerial style. Though managers are utilized to measure productivity in an office, at times, an alteration in visibility becomes tough for the managers who struggle hard to adapt. It will be tough for you to do Microgaming when you don’t remain in the same office. Here, in this circumstance, project management training becomes helpful to the managers in leading their team via their leadership and organizational skills.
Become results-driven in place of presence-driven
Shifting to a results-driven company from a presence-driven company will help in ensuring productivity regardless of the geographical distance. So, for this, you need to put stress on the key deliverables and lesser on the regular face time. Hence, your employees will be able to observe the advantages of meeting or the outcomes of not meeting their goals.
Never overlook the remote workers’ performance
As someone is not present physically never signifies that he isn’t a distinguished or a dedicated worker. Nonetheless, remote work has got in the path of the progression of employees’ work. For being truly inclusive to individuals who opt for remote work, it is important to standardize the processes.
Utilize the collaboration tools
The virtual collaboration tools turn helpful for boosting communication, particularly for virtual meetings. A person can split his collaboration tools to chiefly 3 classes, like:
- Communication – It has tools that support unstructured information exchanges similar to a phone call or an instant messenger.
- Conferencing – It has tools that support the structured information exchanges which result in some shared goals, like brainstorming sessions or virtual town halls. Some tools could comprise virtual whiteboards, live Q and A tools, and remote conferencing services.
- Co-ordination – These tools manage or arrange interdependent work and it could comprise document managers, workflow systems, e-calendars, or project management tools.
As more and more people prefer remote working, many workplaces have decided to drop their formal outfit policy. Again, when people do remote work, they can take out some time to devote to a few reputed online casino games, like Judi online and Slot online. The best thing is you can work even when you are in your pajamas.
5G’s Impact on Global GDP over $7.5 trillion-Huawei
Huawei recently held its 5G+, Better World Summit, where various operators and industry partners shared their experiences of how 5G applications can drive significant business and industry efficiency.
“5G development has entered a new phase,” said Huawei Carrier CMO Bob Cai.
“With over 80 5G networks commercially available worldwide, determining how to leverage 5G to create more value is currently a topic of great interest within the industry.”
“Currently, 5G for business is still more of a branding concept, and more solid work needs to be done. To build a positive business cycle, work should be done in four aspects: technology, ecosystem, standards, and business model.”
5G will drive future business
Dimitris Mavrakis, research director of ABI research, highlighted that new ‘G’ technologies have historically offered major benefits to consumers.
5G, however, is likely to be most beneficial to the commercial sector.
By 2030, Mavrakis predicted that 5G’s impact on the global GDP will be over $7.5 trillion – compared to the $5.1 trillion 4G contributed in 2019.
“We expect that 5G will transform businesses in the same way 4G transformed consumers,” said Mavrakis.
However, he cautioned that it could take several years for the manufacturing world to adopt the technology.
Mavrakis also implored governments to provide opportunities for 5G to flourish within their countries, and highlighted ways that this is already being done, such as in the provisioning of free 5G spectrum and the reduction in taxation of carriers.
Several Huawei partners also highlighted the different industries that are already getting great benefits out of 5G.
Ports of trade
Xu Mengqiang, General Manager of China Mobile Ningbo, highlighted that several 5G implementations have resulted in substantial benefits to a Ningbo port.
These include 5G-powered self-driving container trucks, remote controlled cranes, and backhaul HD video streaming – which shows key cranes in real time.
The Ningbo port envisions that efficiency will be increased by over 260% while labour turnover will significantly reduced as a result of better and safer remote working environments using new 5G-powered technologies.
Dr Thomas Anken is the head of the Digital Production Federal Department of Economic Affairs Education and Research in Switzerland.
Anken highlighted that 5G is enabling a variety of smart farming methods that have a significant impact on the yields of farms in the country.
- Multispectral imaging of wheat fields by drones resulting in a 10% decrease in fertiliser usage.
- Tractors with an automated hoe that recognises plants and eliminates the weeds around them.
- The swift delivery of important intelligence to the cloud which ensures that automated robots receive data to update their machine learning capabilities, while farmers also receive insights into how they can optimise their processes.
Guo Lihong, Deputy Director of the Engineering Equipment Department of Hunan Valin Xiangtan Iron and Steel, explained that 5G is expected to increase the factory’s efficiency by 30% while reducing costs by the same margin.
5G is used with remote-controlled cranes and slag-adding arms to streamline the factory’s processes, and these cranes have improved production efficiency by 33%.
The ability for production line surveyors to watch real-time production through HD video has also optimised these workers’ jobs.
In total, the factory plans to build 100 5G macro sites as well as three management centres to continue to reap the benefits of 5G.
Hospitals in Henan province have implemented a variety of impressive 5G-powered functionalities to improve their response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was particularly important to minimize human-to-human contact, and allow doctors to support patients remotely, or whilst standing safely behind a screen.
These systems were installed within 82 hours and involved the building of remote systems for 147 hospitals in 18 cities within the province.
Features that were available to these hospitals included:
- Remote surgery guidance.
- Self-driving vehicles to deliver equipment and sanitize facilities
- Robots through which doctors can talk to patients.
- Systems in ambulances which support first response teams – in an ambulance moving at 80km/h, backhaul speed is 50MB/s.
5G- enabled Smart Tourism will generate benefits across the whole economy value chain. During the current pandemic 5G enables higher-quality broadcasting of tourism and wildlife attractions as well as in Virtual Reality to help with marketing and attracting tourists in the future. Imagine if a 5G enabled camera was strapped on an animal, surrounded by thousands of other animals during the migration, and you could experience that in high quality from home.
For tourists who come to Kenya, 5G will let customers use Augmented Reality on their phones or special wearable devices to experience tourist sites differently—just imagine overlaying images and seeing and hearing what Lamu Old Town and Port, or Fort Jesus used to look and sound like hundreds of years ago, or seeing some of the items in the National Museum in their original environment, or passing an item in a museum and immediately being able to see on your phone videos explaining it, or even helping you see inside it. Such experiences can not only enhance the visitor’s experience, but also generate additional revenue for the industry, and extend tourists’ stays.
Finally, hotels and tourist attractions can also use 5G to very quickly set-up wi-fi in hotels and wi-fi hotspots at tourist attractions which is a must nowadays.
