Executive Order #65 Hearing Uncertain

first_imgThe possibility of the Supreme Court deciding whether or not to allow the enforcement of Executive Order #65 before the holding of the December 16 special senatorial election is still in doubt.The uncertainty is due to the delay on the part of government’s lawyers to submit their response pleading against the “unconstitutionality” lawsuit filed before the Supreme Court against President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf’s executive order by her son Robert, one of the senatorial candidates for Montserrado County.But, Associate Justice Philip A.Z. Banks, who is the current Justice in Chambers and the person who imposed a stay order on the elections, says “everything is on course.”Justice Banks did not indicate when the full bench will hear the matter, stating, “government’s lawyers are yet to file their responsive pleading, but I am told that they would do so today.“If they don’t file their response, we can’t set any hearing date, and the justices will not be able to hear the matter very soon,” said Justice Banks, adding, “I can’t send the case to the full bench for oral arguments if we don’t have the responses.”“Then how would the Liberian people expect us to come down with a ruling outside of the legal document?” Justice Banks asked.In their responsive pleading  government is expected to argue either that the factual allegation made in the complaint, even if true, does not set forth a cognizable legal claim, or that the complaint is factually insufficient in that, for example, it fails to allege facts that are sufficient to state a plausible claim for relief.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Hologram announces world’s largest cellular IoT network

first_imgHologram announced on Tuesday the world’s largest global cellular network dedicated to Internet of Things (IoT) devices, capable of working on 600 cellular networks in 200 countries.Hologram has not revealed all of the supported networks, but said all U.S. carriers will work.See Also:BrickerBot malware will brick unsecure Internet of Things devices As part of the network upgrade, Hologram has added more price transparency, allowing customers to choose from a multitude of options, down to the kilobyte. In a press release, the company also said the new network is ‘ultra-scalable’ and offers enterprise-grade connection and diagnostics.“Historically, cellular infrastructure has been expensive, rigid, and difficult to maintain making it challenging to adapt the needs of IoT,” said Ben Forgan, CEO of Hologram. “By applying modern software technologies to cellular, Hologram’s software-defined network changes this paradigm.“It allows us to greatly improve performance, cost, coverage and ease of use on a continuous basis, which in turn greatly expands the number of IoT applications that can take advantage of the ubiquity and security of a cellular connection.”Hologram offers a free megabyte per month to new customers that want to test the platform, before becoming fully invested. Alongside the SIM card, customers can also use the company’s cloud services, and customizable hardware solutions, also built for the Internet of Things.The Hologram approach, of using existing cellular networks to power IoT, is one of the more simple solutions, although some worry that IoT needs its own spectrum. Sigfox created its own proprietary technology that uses the ISM radio band, which cordless phones, Bluetooth devices, and wireless computer networks sometimes use.
