A colossal waste of time
Dear Editor,One recent meeting was described as “a colossal waste of time”.The most recent round of meeting between the two main political players can also be described thus. Why? There has not been anything new emanating or emerging from the meeting. No compromises or brokered agreements in arriving at a consensus. Not even a glimmer of hope.Both sides hold firm and steadfast to their respective views, opinions and interpretations of the Constitution and court rulings. The caretaker President and Cabinet maintain they will not resign, while the Opposition maintains it will not return to Parliament among other numerous stated positions on both sides.So what we have? Continued stalemate…a photo op and another day gone.It must be wondered if these “colossal waste of time” meetings are for the benefit of the international community.Sincerely,Shamshun Mohamed
Defeating the Ebola Epidemic
The Ebola epidemic is threatening to wreck havoc on the peoples of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, but the extraordinary measures that have been taken by the governments of these nations along with the support of the World Health Organization (WHO), and international public health experts and workers, we are sure to stop the spread of the virus. We will no doubt succeed, based on the determination of our people and their growing receptiveness to the measures proposed by the government in eradicating this morbid disease in Liberia and in the other affected countries of Guinea and Sierra Leone.The disease, we are told, is at present without cure and there is no vaccine to immunize people against it. We therefore are well advised to heed the preventive measures that are being undertaken to combat it.The government of Liberia has ordered the closing of all schools until further notice. It has allocated funds to the Ministry of Health for deploying health workers to spray the environment with disinfectants, checking on people from house to house to observe whether there are some with the symptom of the disease, and where there is, so to bring them to quarantine facilities for treatment. The Ministry of Health is also conducting public education and awareness on the dangers of the virus as well as the necessary measures to avoid contracting and spreading it.The government has also announced measures to isolate the locations where the incident of infection appears to be high.Other measures include the cremation of corpses of those who are suspected to have been infected with the disease. In addition, the government has decided to reduce the staff of the various ministries for a month to the level of essential staff sending the others home on a paid follow for the period. The government has also instructed the Ministry of Commerce to admit imports of receptacles (buckets) used for washing hands in chlorinize water as sterilization. Beyond this, worshipping centers (Churches and Mosques), shopping centers, businesses and entertainment places are required to provide facilities for the washing of hands in antiseptic solution as well as to announce and post notices of the danger of the Ebola epidemic. Some of these entertainment centers have begun to play music that carry on awareness message of the disease.The President of the Republic attended a meeting in Conakry, Guinea of the leaders of the other countries in the Mano River Region for the purpose of addressing this urgent problem. At this meeting it was agreed to quarantine the meeting points of these three nations-Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea- as a way of isolating the areas to prevent the spread of the disease–a very bold move for that matter. Besides, President Johson-Sirleaf has had to cancel a trip to the United States where she would have attended a US – Africa Summit, so as to devote her full attention to the contagion.The Liberian public is increasingly coming to grips with the seriousness of this deadly disease. People are observed to be following the instructions of the Ministry of Health involving the washing of hands to sterilize them, avoiding personal contact in shaking hands which is customary here as well as embracing one another when the meet. They are also advised to avoid large gatherings wherein they would tend to be more exposed to infection with the disease.People are clearly demonstrating their appreciation for the concern shown by the government, particularly by the office of the President and the Ministry of Health. I would like to join in expressing my gratitude for the concern shown and for the measures advised.We also wish to register our sincere thanks and appreciation to the international community particularly to the WHO, for the hefty donation of funds to pay for the campaign of arresting the spread of this disease as well as for ultimately eradicating it.The confident expressed by the Director of the WHO in our ability to overcome this communicable disease inspires us to action to stop it.Lastly, it is necessary to draw attention to the need to stress public hygiene and environmental protection in our public awareness program. There is equally a need to establish an agency for nutrition, environment and public health. We need to regulate food standards, market standards and to carryout regular inspections of market stalls. In addition, some public education on the hazards of indiscriminately eating animals in the wild. Some of these animals may carry viruses that may present serious health challenges.We need to review our eating habit and do more for public sanitation. It is my view that the government and some civic organizations have to take a lead in these matters. There is a need for some regulation of these matters in the Public interest.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Jagdeo raps Patterson on alleged corrupt practices
Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo is accusing the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition Government of “just gyaffing” when it comes to major developmental projects in the country.Opposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoHis criticism was directed towards the infrastructure sector headed by Minister David Patterson.Recently, the Public Infrastructure Minister had come in for heavy criticism from Opposition Member of Parliament, Juan Edghill, who accused him and his colleagues of making “glib statements and empty promises”.Patterson responded the following day, defending actions and decisions made particularly as it relates to big infrastructural projects.But according to the Opposition Leader, the Public Infrastructure Minister first needed to answer to the Guyanese people as to how the US$9000 from the Chinese Consortium ended up in his personal bank account instead of that of the Maritime Administration (MARAD).Jagdeo said that Patterson continuously dragged along the Guyana public especially when it came to the energy sector with his most recent utterance being that a 188-megawatt natural gas powered plant would be built by Government.“You’ve heard Patterson 10 times before speaking about all of these plans for the electricity sector. They even went out to tender for a gas power plant, then they shifted it and cancelled it. They were talking about negotiating a wind farm with one of their cronies. Then they talk about solar farm. Nothing is moving; they’re just gaffing,” Jagdeo noted.Public Infrastructure Minister David PattersonHe went on to say that if Guyanese had believed the Minister then, the much-anticipated road to Lethem would have already been paved especially since it was announced in three Budgets, but it was only taking off this year.“Patterson just talks about things and behind that façade of them doing something, it stinks of corruption … We should examine in his Ministry all the single-source contracts he’s been giving out. His role in the two major contracts in the GPL that we believe are corrupt,” the Opposition Leader said.Jagdeo went on to say that there was a “long list” of such acts including the Demerara Harbour Bridge feasibility study contract that was sole-sourced to a Dutch company.Turning his attention to the controversial Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) expansion, the Opposition Leader said that the Minister continued to make excuses without addressing the fundamental issues surrounding the project.“Why did you alter? He keeps saying ‘we haven’t altered’, but it’s a lie. It’s altered – the airport. I believe we’re getting US$30 million based on adjustments and I believe there is corruption there too,” Jagdeo posited.The Opposition Leader further outlined that every time the Minister got cornered or questioned about anything, he would immediately turn his attention to projects under the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C).“[He says] there is no feasibility study for Marriott. How can we have an incompetent minister like this? I can take you online and show you the feasibility study – two were done… He said there is not feasibility study for the Berbice Bridge.“Right at this press conference I showed you the feasibility study with financial projections and all of this. The Skeldon factory – if you go online now you will see Tate and Lyle website which says that the Government of Guyana asked them to prepare the study. Yet in (Friday’s) paper, he writes there is no feasibility study for any of these things, but remember he lied in Parliament too. When [he] gets cornered and his wrongdoings are exposed, he lashes out at everything. Even things that don’t make sense and that have been answered before,” Jagdeo said.
61 striking workers fired by bauxite company
…Union cries constitutional violation, calls for political intervention…company no-show at Labour Dept’s conciliation meetingThe Guyana Bauxite and General Workers Union (GBGWU) is holding on to its call for Government to intervene in the Russian Aluminium Company (RUSAL) controversy, which took another turn with the abrupt firing of some 61 striking Guyanese workers. This was confirmed by the GBGWU’s President Lincoln Lewis, who told Guyana Times on Monday that a list of names was provided which detailed the workers who are now jobless.On Friday, operations at the company’s Region 10 location were temporarily shut down after workers protested an arbitrary one per cent salary increase by the multi-national company – an increase which was reportedly sanctioned by Guyana’s Government. Lewis was asked if he has been given assurances by the Minister charged with oversight of Labour, Keith Scott, of a possibility of settling the matter, but the Union President responded in the negative.“We didn’t talk with the Labour Minister, there’s no assurances from anybody,” Lewis strongly commented.On Monday, RUSAL’s management was a no-show at a conciliation meeting even though they were called upon by the Labour Department. It has been relayed that the affected workers were given letters of termination dated February 18, 2019, without reasons cited. However, the Union representative plans to ventilate the issue to the fullest extent, saying that matter would be “prosecuted”. He did not confirm if this meant that RUSAL’s representatives would be served with legal action but noted that it is a possibility.“It would be possible – we are contemplating both political and legal action,” Lewis stressed.He further noted that there have been several constitutional violations on the part of the foreign-based company over the last decade, but Lewis is of the view that the State would not have allowed local companies to do the same. He said it is only the politicians that can speak as to why this has been continuing.Lewis said that he sees this current issue as a transgression on the rights of workers. “When people can challenge your Constitution and your laws, then you have to take action against them…the President and the Opposition Leader should get involved,” Lewis, who is also General Secretary of the Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC), said.Chief Labour Officer Charles Ogle has, however, indicated that a conciliation meeting will be held today.RUSAL’s reported dismissal comes after workers were, in fact, threatened with dismissal after they initiated the strike action. However, under Article 147 of the Constitution of Guyana, striking workers are afforded protection.The company, in a letter dated February 15, 2019, which was seen by this publication noted that management had no alternative but to close the mine area due to the withdrawal of labour by workers attached to the mining equipment/mobile equipment maintenance department. It noted that work was halted in the department until further notice. “All affected workers are asked to leave the premises of the company with immediate effect,” the letter went on to state.There was a planned meeting between management and employees on Saturday where workers intended to reiterate their calls for a 15 per cent increase. During the meeting, issues such as wage increases, living quarters and transportation were reportedly discussed and Regional Vice Chairman for Region Ten (Upper Demerara-Berbice), Elroy Adolph in an invited comment said employees were very disturbed over the rate of the increase, but have faith in the Workers Union.The GBGWU on Friday noted the situation was an embarrassment to all Guyanese. According to the Union, Article 147 (2) of the Constitution of Guyana protects the right to strike, noting that in the collective bargaining process, striking is considered an industrial weapon to be used whenever the circumstances become necessary.“In this period of political division and external tension with our neighbour Venezuela that is facilitating a growing presence of Russia in its ongoing pursuit of geopolitical relevance, is management’s new threats and intensified violation a strategy we must pay attention to,” the Union had also stated.
Everyone should vote in LAUSD election
Those afraid to leave their homes at night in fear of gangs – gangs whose recruitment efforts prey on high school dropouts – have reason to go the polls. Keep in mind that your vote in a school board race has a far greater impact than it would in a national or gubernatorial election. In fact, in the 2006 race for school board member Jose Huizar’s vacant seat, less than 25,000 people voted. This means that less than 25,000 people made a decision that would affect all 3
Silva scores twice as Man City rallies to beat Bayern
Mahrez, however, went down twice with what looked like an ankle problem. He was eventually forced off after just 27 minutes and looked in discomfort.With the traditional English season opener – the Community Shield – taking place next Sunday at Wembley against Chelsea, coach Guardiola will assess the Algerian’s fitness as the start of the Premier League campaign looms into view.Meanwhile Guardiola’s squad flew back to Manchester at the end of the Saturday match.City’s opening games against Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool had both ended in narrow defeats, but with Guardiola opting for familiarity — eight players in the starting lineup here had begun all three games of this US tour — it was another young side full of running.Bayern Munich’s goal keeper Sven Ulreich tries to block Manchester City’s Brahim Diaz during their International Champions Cup friendly in Miami © AFP / RHONA WISE“We analyzed our mistakes in the previous games and did it better against Bayern Munich,” said Guardiola. “We were able to play good and overcome the situation when we were 2-0 down.”Bayern’s main men Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery looked dangerous on the ball, yet with Mahrez afforded plenty of space in midfield the English champions dominated the early stages and really should have opened the scoring.Mahrez, who had already spent a few minutes getting treatment after being challenged, sent German-born City striker Nmecha through only for his shot be saved by Sven Ulreich.It wasn’t long before Nmecha had the opportunity to make amends as another classy through ball from Mahrez set him free, but this time he was denied by the post.That was to prove a costly couple of misses because on 14 minutes, Bayern were ahead.– Finds space –The lively Rafinha found space on the right and his cross was headed in by Meritan Shabani.It was a good team goal and on 23 minutes, Ribery and Robben combined for number two. The French midfielder’s lofted through ball found the Dutchman in the area and his two touches – one to control and one to expertly lift the ball past Claudio Bravo – were top class.And all of a sudden, a difficult evening for Guardiola darkened on 27 minutes when Mahrez was forced to leave the field with an injured ankle.Manchester City’s Douglas Luiz gets to grips with Bayern Munich’s Franck Ribery (L) during their International Champions Cup friendly in Miami © AFP / RHONA WISE“We will see, maybe it is not a problem,” said Guardiola.The Algerian limped off to be replaced by Portuguese midfielder Silva, who scored the goal his team’s display had deserved on the stroke of half-time.The former Monaco star ran unchallenged 25 yards out and produced an excellent low, curling finish leaving Ulreich with no chance.The Bayern keeper was being kept busy and on 51 minutes, he was picking the ball out of the back of the net once more after Silva fed Foden and when his curling shot was parried, Nmecha was on hand to steer home from close.No-one could begrudge this young City side a share of the spoils, but the game was turned on its head with 20 minutes remaining.A first City appearance for 17-year-old Spanish attacking midfielder Adrian Bernabe quickly resulted in a third goal for Guardiola’s side. The former Barcelona youngster teed up Silva who wriggled clear in the area before drilling low past Ulreich for the winner.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Two goals from substitute Bernardo Silva (R) helped Manchester City come from 2-0 down to end a run of two defeats in their International Champions Cup campaign with a 3-2 win over Bayern Munich © AFP / RHONA WISEMIAMI, United States, Jul 29 – Pepe Guardiola finished Manchester City’s US tour with a deserved 3-2 victory over former club Bayern Munich, but his evening was soured with an injury to new signing Riyad Mahrez.Two goals from substitute Bernardo Silva helped Manchester City come from 2-0 down to end a run of two defeats in this International Champions Cup campaign with youngster Lukas Nmecha scoring in between.
PLANS TO BE DISCUSSED FOR AMENITIES AT FOOT OF ERRIGAL
An artist’s impression of a possible plan for the foot of Errigal.Donegal County Council officials will met today to discuss possible improvement works at the foot of Errigal.The meeting will take place between county councillor Micheal MacGiolla Easbuig and officials dealing with Community and Enterprise.Councillor MacGiolla Easbuig said he hopes the plans will include a larger car park and better facilities for tourists and climbers alike. “Such facilities would include tap water, benches, toilet facilities and a possible very small outlet selling tea and refreshments and also providing information of the area and climb itself.“Signage on our road networks across the county directing people to the climb of Mount Errigal would also be beneficial for the area. I would also like to see included in this plan of works at the site a boardwalk from the carpark across the bog to access the mountain easier which would prevent climbers getting wet or falling while on the bogland,” he said.He added he did not wish to see this as a large development.“I believe this would only take away from the raw beauty which people are drawn to the area for. As in the artists impression you see here the works should be kept to a minimum, only providing the essentials for what is needed. I believe such a project and improvements on the site would be of huge benefit to locals and tourists alike and would attract even more tourism to the region.” He willl also be requesting a meeting with Minister of Arts, Heritage and the Gaetacht Joe McHugh TD to discuss this plan and indeed tourism in the area in general.“Glenveagh National Park which is only a short distance from Mount Errigal is a huge attraction for tourists from the North West area and further afield. I think it would be hugely beneficial to make the most of this attraction and do what we can to bring those who would travel to Glenveagh to make the journey that bit further west in Donegal, both to Mount Errigal and beyond to enjoy our beautiful coastline.“While it is vital that we do what we can to make the most of the tourism potential of West Donegal I don’t believe it should be tourism at any cost. We should first and foremost look at doing the most we can but with the very least amount of impact on the scenery and environment which Donegal is world renowned for.“Improving upon our areas most vital resource of tourism potential, an industry which can benefit so much of our people across the board, is something I feel we have to look at very seriously to help recover the area. Such plans will lead to the creation of sustainable employment in the region of West Donegal and with such plans we will be looking after our whole community and not just the interests of a few,” he added.PLANS TO BE DISCUSSED FOR AMENITIES AT FOOT OF ERRIGAL was last modified: September 1st, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalErrigalMICHEAL MACGIOLLA EASBUIGtourists
