…local businessman implicatedOfficers from the Guyana Energy Agency (GEA) have seized 300 barrels of illegal fuel suspected to be transported for a popular businessman in Region Two. The illegal fuel was intercepted at Airy Hall at a local wharf suspected to be from Venezuela.Information revealed that officers from GEA were tipped off about the illegal operations and so journeyed to Region Two and questioned five men who were on the boat which housed the fuel. The men disclosed that they were merely transporting the fuel for an Anna Regina businessman.Information revealed the boat was seized by officers and the fuel removed. The Police were also alerted by the GEA and a joint investigation has commenced.GEA has been increasing its efforts in the fight against fuel smuggling. Only recently the entity reported that a multi-stakeholder approach has greatly aided in curbing the scourge of fuel smuggling.The agency noted last Monday that the “hard work” of its inspectors, in collaboration with sister agencies, which form the Task Force on Fuel Smuggling and Contraband, conducted 16 joint operations.This Task Force comprises the Guyana Police Force, Guyana Defence Force Coast Guard, Guyana Revenue Authority and the Customs and Anti-Narcotics Unit.It noted that as at June 30, 2016, six prosecutions were engaging the Courts. However, GEA pointed out that it is in receipt of compensation from offenders.Fuel smuggling refers to the importation and distribution of petroleum and petroleum products, particularly petrol (gasoline) and dieseline, by both legitimate and illegitimate businesses without paying the necessary taxes.

CATHOLIC PRIEST: ‘GOVERNMENT ATTACK ON PROTESTANT SCHOOLS IS RETROGRADE STEP’
A LEADING Catholic priest in the county has warned that Government education policies have amounted to an attack on Protestant schools – and he vowed to oppose them.Father Joe Joe Duffy, PP on Arranmore Island, has launched a scathing attack on current policies which he said was contrary to a ‘parity of esteem for all.”Father Duffy said: “The Government’s decision to pursue an educational policy that adversely affects the Protestant faith ethos in particular is ill-conceived and poorly thought out. “This is particularly pertinent at this time when confidence- building measures for faith communities and different traditions are required in the North.“When we consider it in the context of North/South relations the onus is on the Irish Government to pursue confidence-building measures and parity of esteem for minority faiths.”He said that equality for all is what was demanded in the North, but “unfortunately we are pursuing a different policy in the South.”He went on: “This is a retrograde step by the Irish Government as the consequences will severely negatively impact on the Republic’s minority faiths. “The Protestant bishops have every right to be concerned, as 130 out of 178 of their schools have 86 pupils or fewer. Under the disproportionate increase in the pupil/teacher ratio for schools with 86 pupils or fewer, there is the real prospect of 38 of the Protestant schools becoming one-teacher schools.“This is nothing more than a stealth closure and amalgamation measure by the Government. Protestant schools will find it difficult to amalgamate with other Protestant schools due to the nature of their communities which are dispersed and are far away from another school of their own ethos.“In Co Donegal, two of the Protestant schools near where I am based are 87km away from each other, on very bad and dangerous roads. We as a country should be fully supportive of minority faith schools. They play an important role in the formation of values that serve our country well and our communities in particular. The ethos of minority faith schools has to be protected in our pluralistic society, where pluralism ought to protect faith-based and non-faith based schools of all ethos alike.”Father Duffy added in his letter to the Irish Times: “It is the duty of the majority to protect the rights of the minorities. If we fail to do that we have failed to be a pluralistic society and we have failed as a democracy that should cherish the rights of all its children irrespective of class, creed or colour.“In 2009, in Opposition, Enda Kenny responded to educational policy stating that “Protestant schools are being ‘got at’ . . .” In 2012, it is important that we recognise the value and the important place that Protestant schools and all minority schools ought to have in our education system and our country. As a Roman Catholic priest, I, with many others, will do all we can to protect Protestant schools, for we are concerned for our neighbours and our friends and the position they face.” CATHOLIC PRIEST: ‘GOVERNMENT ATTACK ON PROTESTANT SCHOOLS IS RETROGRADE STEP’ was last modified: April 4th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:CATHOLIC PRIEST: ‘GOVERNMENT ATTACK ON PROTESTANT SCHOOLS IS RETROGRADE STEP’
Honda stays with IRL
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Lack of competition and the ability to supply every driver in the series with an engine are two of the main concerns for Honda Performance Development, which is based in Santa Clarita, and the IRL. But both were confident Honda would be able to meet the IRL teams’ demands. “We welcome competition,” Clarke said. “Then again, we understand that we may be the only manufacturer involved. We’re OK with that.” Brian Barnhart, president and chief operating officer of the IRL, said the series is actively pursuing other manufacturers. “We’ve been contacting all of them,” Barnhart said. “As (Clarke) stated, it’s his preference to have competition. At the same time, it’s our preference to have competition as well. “At this point in time, we don’t have any other manufacturers who have taken up the challenge of taking on Honda and their participation in the Indy Car Series.” Clarke said competition is one of the main reasons Honda is involved in racing. But Clarke added that he sees some advantages to being the only engine supplier in the series. “Our desire is to be involved in a series we view as the pinnacle and the premier open-wheel racing series,” Clarke said, “and see that as maybe a priority over the need to have competition.” Barnhart said teams and drivers will use equipment that is equally competitive, and that would be another advantage to having one engine supplier in the IRL. With the possibility of Honda being the only engine supplier in the series, Barnhart said the IRL’s relationship with Honda is going to change. “The key is we are going to have a very open-minded relationship with Honda over the next several years to take a different approach on how the series is grown,” Barnhart said. Honda joined the IRL in 2003, and its current agreement with the series expires at the end of the 2006. In three years, Honda and its drivers and teams have won the past two IRL championships (Tony Kanaan and Dan Wheldon), the past two Indianapolis 500s (Buddy Rice and Wheldlon) and 27 IndyCar Series races. Honda drivers also have won the past three rookies of the year (Wheldon, Kosuke Matsuura and Danica Patrick). “I am very excited about Honda’s decision today as it brings stability and continuity to a very competitive racing package,” said Tony George, chief executive officer of the IRL. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Honda. We’re encouraged by their multi-year commitment to the IRL and their willingness to assist us in growing the series both on and off the track.” BACK IN TOWN California Speedway might not be without an open-wheel race for long. “It just didn’t work out in 2006, but I’m confident we will be back in this market in 2007,” Barnhardt said. His sentiment was echoed by track president Gillian Zucker. “I don’t think there’s a relationship to re-cultivate,” she said. “We don’t dislike each other. They made a business decision.” Zucker lobbied for her track to host the first race after the Indy 500. But that June 4, 2006, date instead went to Watkins Glen, the venerable road course in New York. “We don’t have a race right now a week after Indianapolis,”‘ Barnhardt said. “By adding a race a week after, you run the risk of Indy being a rainout. The race after Indianapolis has to have the flexibility to the end of the year.” The last time that happened was 1986, when the CART race in Milwaukee had to be moved later in the season. That wouldn’t be a problem for Watkins Glen because its lone NASCAR race is scheduled for August 13. Fontana’s second NASCAR date is over Labor Day weekend, which would be too close to a potential makeup date for both the IRL’s and the track’s liking. Adding an IRL race to Fontana’s schedule in 2007 isn’t easy, though. The series is expected to stick with the compressed schedule format, which for next season means 14 races in 25 weeks from March through September. An IRL race might need to be run at night or coupled with another event, like one of the track’s two Cup races. Staff Writer A.J.

FONTANA – Honda will supply engines to Indy Racing League teams through 2009, it was announced Saturday at California Speedway. Whether other engine manufacturers will join Honda in the IRL is yet to be determined. Honda made its commitment to the IRL as Chevrolet and Toyota are preparing to leave the open-wheel racing series. Chevrolet is gone after this season. Toyota will leave after 2006. As it stands, Honda will be the sole engine supplier to the IRL when the 2007 season starts. “Clearly we have a focus on open-wheel racing,” said Robert Clarke, president of Honda Performance Development. “In this decision process, there was no other consideration. The only discussion was whether to stay or leave.”

Wilder put Drake up 4-1 in the 76th minute (76:31) after she headed a ball past Moulton that was set up by senior Kasey Hurt’s (Ankeny, Iowa) deep cross from the right side to Wilder, who was in the box. The Crusaders scored their final goal in the 78th minute (78:13) to cut deficit to 4-2, but the Bulldogs tightened defensively holding them to just one more shot. In the final 12 minutes Drake nearly scored for a fifth time as junior Alyssa Brand (Skokie, Ill.) had a shot on goal and freshman Abby Stephenson (Nevada, Iowa) just missed her first career goal on a shot attempt that went wide. Drake (8-3-1, 1-0 MVC) redshirt senior Rebecca Rodgers (Peotone, Ill.) recorded her second career hat trick and senior Hannah Wilder (Wheatfield, Ind.) scored her first goal of the season in the Bulldogs’ MVC opener. Valparaiso (7-6-0, 1-1 MVC) scored both goals in the second half, but Drake quickly answered each goal with one of its own. Next Game: Following Saturday’s game, Drake will stay at home as Indiana State visits Cownie on Oct. 6. First kick with the Sycamores is set for 7 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on The Valley on ESPN3. Print Friendly Version “That was a really solid performance from our team,” said head coach Lindsey Horner. “We had the majority of possession and were defensively quite sound with Ali (Smith), Elaine (Gorom), and Brooke (Salisbury) being nearly flawless down the middle. Pleased for our fullbacks to get assists as they are such a pivotal part of starting our attack. Becca’s individual impact tonight was impressive, but it was the team performance that shined the brightest. We played to our strengths as we were dominant in the air, in tackles and in possession. This is a great start to our MVC season, and look forward to Indiana State on Friday.” Preview Live Stats Full Schedule Roster DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University women’s soccer defeated Valparaiso, 4-2, in Missouri Valley Conference action on Saturday night at the Cownie Soccer Complex.
Children’s Parliament salute to Madiba
14 July 2011Nelson Mandela will receive a gift of a different kind for his 93rd birthday, with the inaugural Annual Nelson Mandela Children’s Parliament to be hosted at the Gauteng Provincial Legislature on Friday, ahead of the great man’s birthday on Monday, 18 July.Children have always occupied a special place in Mandela’s heart. Within his first year as President of South Africa, Mandela had launched the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund (NMCF) as a sign of his commitment to the well-being of children.Children will return the honour of his pledge to their cause by staging a National Children’s Parliament as a way of saluting him for placing them high on South Africa’s national development agenda.Ranked as the key strategic activity in the building of a national child rights movement, the Children’s Parliament is initiated through a partnership between the Department for Women, Children and People with Disabilities and the NMCF.Welcoming the inaugural Children’s Parliament, Minister Lulu Xingwana said her department believed children should not only be seen but also heard.“Nothing better represents an opportunity to give credence to this collective view than convening a National Children’s Parliament where leaders from various spheres of government can affirm children’s voices with their valued presence.“Holding all of us in authority accountable represents both the spirit and letter that our founding democratic President Nelson Mandela had set in motion on April 27, 1994,” said Xingwana.Holding those in authority accountableThe Children’s Parliament will be held under the theme, “Holding those in authority accountable.” Deliberations will focus on three supportive sub-themes which are health, education and safety and security.Elaborating on the theme, NMCF Acting CEO Moipone Buda-Ramatlo said: “By authority we mean the exercise of responsibility, duty and obligation to act in the best interest of the child to ensure their safety, wellbeing and development at all times.“Families, communities, civil society and all spheres government dare not take leave from the wellbeing of children because in them lies the foundation of the future society envisioned in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.”For the first time, government officials will be making a conscious effort to be part of a National Children’s Parliament session hosted under the navigation of Speaker of the Gauteng Provincial Legislature, Lindiwe Maseko.Maseko said the Gauteng Legislature had had its share of civil society voices heard within its corridors, but looked forward to the element of difference that the Children’s Parliament would be bringing.“The future we are battling to create can only be better by trying different but well-meaning approaches to the kind of a future we would like our children to inherit,” Maseko said.Children parliamentarians will receive a salutary message from former President Mandela during the seating of the Children’s Parliament on Friday.Represented at the Children’s Parliament will be five children from each of the country’s nine provinces.The inaugural Nelson Mandela Children’s Parliament is scheduled to start at 10am.Source: BuaNews

U.P. to barcode stray cows
Grappling with the menace of stray cattle, the Uttar Pradesh government has told officials to barcode abandoned animals and set up temporary cow shelters at unused government buildings.The suggestions figure in an order issued by the State’s Animal Husbandry department on Monday, weeks after the Yogi Adityanath government announced a cess to set up shelters for cattle.Temporary cow shelters can be established at various cooperative institutions (such as mandi parishads and sugar mills) and at institutes of the Central government lying closed, it suggested. The order suggested that stray cattle should be barcoded and RFID-tagged, if possible. RFID involves using radio frequency identification technology to scan identity tags. The order said fodder banks can also be set up at the temporary shelters. Farmers can deposit crop waste there.

Match Preview The grass hasn’t been quite as green as it once was for Northern Ireland over the past 12 months for Michael O’Neill’s side.Having been poised to reach their first World Cup since 1986 last year, a contreversial penalty call against Switzerland saw them head out in the qualifying play-offs 1-0 on aggregate.Since then, the Green and White Army have only mustered two wins across all competitions, against South Korea and Israel in friendlies, and have already been relgated from their Nations League group with a game to play.They have failed to score since September too, held goalless on the road across their last three encounters, most recently a 0-0 draw on Thursday with Republic of Ireland.Now however, they return to Belfast looking to end 2018 with an overdue return to winning ways, but must do so against an Austria side who defeated them 1-0 just over a month ago.Franco Foda’s side were handed victory by Marko Arnautovic that day but the West Ham United star may be forced to sit out his side’s trip to Windsor Park as he faces a late fitness call.O’Neill, meanwhile, may include defender Gareth McAuley in his side after the Rangers man made his debut earlier this month for the Glasgow club.The 38-year-old started the season without a contract after West Brom let him go following relegation from the Premier League.Whether he plays or not, his country could certainly do with a win – particularly ahead of next year’s qualification campaign for Euro 2020, with the draw to be made next month.
