Direct Impact is an initiative of the Ministry of the
People and Social Development to take services of
the Government of Trinidad and Tobago directly
to residents in communities across the country.
The interest shown by residents was evident and
a wide cross-section of job seekers took the oppor-
tunity to register on line via GHRS e-recruitment
system that subsequently would allow matching of
such applications to future job openings. Many
persons also availed themselves of information
brochures on resume writing, interviewing tips
and career guidance.
The mandate of GHRS is to facilitate the enhanced
human resource requirements of the Public Service
by providing high quality recruitment and selection
services, training design and delivery and other
customized human resource solutions.
Our participation in this Employment and Health
Fair held in Carlsen Field demonstrates the
commitment of GHRS to good corporate social
responsibility and in particular, bringing its
services directly to communities.

CAPE TOWN---Pakistan s players have made some
pretty significant entries in their tour diaries in South
Africa, a tour that wasn t even scheduled until a few
Sunday: A first one-day international win at Cape
Town s historic Newlands ground. Wednesday: A first
ODI series win anywhere over South Africa, also spoiling
the home team s 500th ODI.
And now Saturday: A chance to become the first coun-
try to whitewash South Africa in a series at home.
The Pakistan squad barely had time to pack their
bags---or any diaries---before trooping out to South Africa
for a short-notice return series that was hastily arranged
off the back of five straight limited-overs losses to the
South Africans in United Arab Emirates.
But while filling in for India, Pakistan has turned it
around emphatically in South Africa and captain Mis-
bah-ul-Haq unsurprisingly called the most recent, series-
clinching win over the Proteas in Port Elizabeth "a really,
really big achievement for us."
"It really means a lot to us to beat South Africa in a
bilateral series for the first time, especially doing it in
South Africa," Misbah said.
Having lost convincingly in both the ODI and Twenty20
series in the UAE earlier this month, Pakistan was invited
for an immediate return series so South Africa could
warm-up for what it felt were its main challenges this
season; an ODI and Test series in December against the
Indians, the closest challengers to South Africa s No 1
India had shortened its trip and turned down some
of the planned November games, leaving South Africa
with a gap in its summer calendar. So, Pakistan s accidental
tourists filled that gap and more, and are now on the
brink of a momentous achievement.
Since South Africa returned to international cricket
in 1991, no team has left the country with a clean sweep
in an ODI series. Not even Ricky Ponting s world champion
Australia of a few years ago or the mighty Indians.
South Africa s pride is on the line at SuperSport Park
in Centurion, near Pretoria, this weekend and while the
home country demands it is defended, Pakistan is probably
in better shape having won three in a row over the Proteas
including the second Twenty20 game.
"It is a young side and now they believe they can win.
That was what was lacking," Misbah said of his histo-
ry-chasing team. (AP)

opener Justin Langer says
the wicket for the third
Ashes Test at the WACA
ground will be similar to the
bouncy Gabba track where
Mitchell Johnson took nine
wickets in the home side s
381-run win over England.
"The WACA is back to its
fast, bouncy best...it will suit
Australia," Langer, now
Western Australia state
coach, said of the third Test
which begins December 13.
The second Test from
December 5 in Adelaide on
a drop-in pitch is expected
to offer less pace and bounce.
Johnson had match figures
of 9-82 in the 2010 Ashes
Test at the WACA, taking
man-of-the match honours
in Australia s only win of the
3-1 series loss.
Langer, who played 105
Tests, was pleased Australia
would maintain its hard-
edged, on-field banter
despite Jonathan Trott
returning home for a stress-
"That s how Ashes should
be played, as long as they
don t step over the line,"
"The players know there
is a fine line there, as long
as it doesn t get personal,
but it should be played
He said only technology
had made the series seem
"Go back to Bodyline (in
the 1930s). I am sure there
were a few harsh words spo-
ken back then, nothing has
changed," Langer said. "The
only thing that has changed
is there are more cameras
and microphones." (AP)
