Rubbish in the Essequibo River

first_imgDear Editor,I am on the Essequibo River almost every weekend, on my boat between Parika and Bartica, visiting my resort near to Bartica. On every journey, without fail, within about 8 miles downriver of Bartica, I encounter an increasing amount of rubbish dumped in the river by the Bartica community, including plastic boxes, plastic bottles and, worst of all, paper wrapping, which if caught it a boat’s propeller can do extensive damage, and even cause an accident.Our President has recently made much of the Green State Development Strategy, and we celebrate World Ocean Day 2019, which the GTA will be marking by planned cleanup on the Georgetown Seawall.When, may I ask, are we going to apply these admirable and high-sounding strategies in the simplest and most practical terms, by cleaning up our act as a people and in our communities?Yours sincerely,Kit Nascimentolast_img read more

New systems in place for duty-free purchases

first_imgAfter days of unfriendly exchanges of correspondence and threats of service cancellation, the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) and Caribbean Airlines Limited (CAL) have managed to settle a row over the dumping of duty-free purchases from Guyana at the Piarco International Airport, Trinidad.Following numerous complaints by Guyanese passengers and local duty-free concessionaires that duty-free items were being dumped while transiting in Trinidad, the Trinidad-based airline was given an ultimatum by CJIA authorities to address the situation or face cancelation of its services here.Representatives from Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA), Caribbean Airlines, the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority and the Trinidad and Tobago Civil Aviation Authority following the meetingHowever, CAL responded in a statement earlier this week saying that it was complying with regulatory directives of the United States, which imposed a restriction on the entry of duty-free items in the sterile holding areas of all transit airports for flights to the US. This was put in place by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) which governs the security processes and conducts audits for all carriers flying into the United States of America.However, a high-level meeting was held on Tuesday morning in Georgetown with officials from CJIA, the Chairman and Executive Management of CAL along with representatives from the Civil Aviation Authorities of Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago.During the meeting, detailed discussions were had following which the parties agreed on a way forward, which would allow passengers who would be in transit in Trinidad and Tobago, to recommence purchasing duty-free items in Guyana without fear of having them dumped.Effective today (Wednesday), a new system has been put in place that will see travellers now being required to place their duty-free items in their checked luggage. This procedure, however, will not apply to BW 526 flights, which operate non-stop from Georgetown to New York.According to a joint statement from CAL and CJIA, “passengers will be required to indicate their intention to purchase duty-free items at the security checkpoint at the entrance to the Airport and again at the Caribbean Airlines check-in counter before making their way to the duty-free shops.”It was further explained that once the purchases were made, the passengers would be escorted by security personnel to the baggage area in order to place the items in their checked luggage.“The process will be closely supervised by security and airport personnel and will be conducted in the full view of cameras,” the statement outlined, adding that the purchases would have to be done one hour before the scheduled departure time to ensure sufficient time for the new procedure.Following the meeting, officials from CJIA indicated that they were pleased with the outcome of discussions, which have resulted in the immediate implementation of the new procedure.“We expect that over time the process will be refined; however, the important thing is that we have found a workable solution which positively impacts travellers from Cheddi Jagan International Airport who wish to purchase duty-free items, but who must transit other airports to get to their final destination,” they stated.Caribbean Airlines Chairman Phillip Marshall stated that this issue was one of national and regional significance, adding that Guyana was an important destination for Caribbean Airlines.“We remain committed to our loyal Guyanese customers whom we have consistently served with reliable service since our start in 2007. Today’s meeting has enabled the CJIA and Caribbean Airlines to achieve a solution to this issue which ensures that Caribbean Airlines remains compliant with the TSA regulations and continues to provide quality service to our valued customers,” Marshall reaffirmed.In light of this agreement, CJIA withdrew its ultimatum issued to the airline, which is Guyana’s designated carrier for the Toronto and New York destinations, flying some 35,000 passengers annually from this nation.Moreover, the Civil Aviation Authorities of Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago also reaffirmed their commitment to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two authorities. Under the MoU, passengers originating from Guyana and connecting to other Caribbean Airlines’ services will not be re-screened at Piarco International Airport.

300 Graduate from BIN, LNFS Training

first_imgOver three hundred recruits of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN) and the Liberia National Fire Service (LNFS) on Saturday graduated from the Camp Biago Sinje Training Site, Garwula District, Grand Cape Mount County.The joint graduation ceremony of such a large number of paramilitary personnel in advance of the draw down plan by peacekeepers of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) next year, is the first of its kind in post-war Liberia.Saturday’s graduation exercise following the training, according to security experts, is the beginning of several training sessions of security personnel aimed to fill in the gap that would subsequently be created after the departure of UNMIL from Liberia.The graduates who have completed a three-month intensive training exercise have been described by BIN Commissioner, Cllr. Lemuel Reeves, as “Pioneers of Camp Biago.” Of the total number of graduates, 265 were certificated as BIN officers, while 73 (12 females and 61 males) were also certificated as “fire fighting officers” of the LNFS, respectively.In their two separate charges to the graduates, both BIN Commissioner Reeves and LNFS Director, G. Warsuwah Barvoul, admonished them to be responsible in their respective professional duties at all times to overcome the challenges that lie ahead of them.Cllr. Reeves disclosed that of the over 300 entry points across the country, only 45 are officially recognized and manned by assigned security personnel, while the rest remain porous. He stressed the need to train and equip more security officers to be assigned across the country’s porous border points.He cautioned the young graduates to bear in mind their role as paramilitary personnel to contribute to the security and socio-economic development of the country by facilitating international travel and regulating entry, exit, residency, citizenship and to moreover improve border structure.For his part, Director Warsuwah called on the graduates, especially those of the LNFS, to bear in mind that their job is “sacrificial,” and requires safeguarding life and property of all residents from potential and real hazards throughout the length and breath of the country. He urged them to promote efficient fire prevention services and continue improving fire firefighting methods and practices in keeping with international best standards.The BIN was established in February 1956 by an Act of the National Legislature as a paramilitary security agency with a statutory mandate to enforce the alien and nationality laws of Liberia.This includes protecting Liberia’s territory against illegal entry, manage legal alien-residents and contribute to the general revenue collection through its services.As for the LNFS, it was formerly a brigade with the name municipal Fire Brigade, but was transformed by an Act of Legislature in October 1963 under the Ministry of Justice (MOJ). The Bureau under the Public Safety Legislation has the oversight responsibility to save lives and protect from fire destruction and regulate all fire safety programs with emphasis on fire prevention and fire fighting.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Drilling of water well leads to eruption of natural gas at Mabaruma

first_img– situation being monitoredThe National Emergency Monitoring System (NEMS) is currently monitoring an eruption of natural gas which occurred in Mabaruma, Barima-Waini (Region One) Monday afternoon.The natural gas eruption which occurred at Mabaruma as a resident was drilling a wellBased on information deceived, a businessman was reportedly drilling a well at Kumaka Water Front on his private property when he came into contact with suspected natural gas.This was confirmed by Regional Chairman Brentnol Ashley who told the Guyana Times that several agencies including the Guyana Water Inc (GWI), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Hydromet Department have been contacted to conduct an assessment.It is unclear whether the businessman had relevant permission to drill a well on his property.However, a resident residing close to where the spill occurred by related that she observed “slush” erupting from the ground.She said she was not pay heed until she noticed that it started to spread rapidly and continued to “bubble” at a fast rate.“I know they were drilling for a well in a private capacity. Not for GWI or anything. And I heard a noise and when I came out, I saw the greyish slushy mud bubbling and it started to get bigger and bigger then started spilling up into the air. I quickly ran inside and lock up my door and left the area because I was afraid and I didn’t know was what,” she said.Meanwhile, Head of the Civil Defence Commission (CDC), Kester Craig in a social media post stated that an investigating in currently underway with respect to an eruption of natural gas in Kumaka, Barima-Waini (Region One).He added that the situation is currently being monitored by the National Emergency Monitoring System (NEMS).It was later confirmed by CDC Senior Response Officer, Salim October that the eruption was as a result of a Brazilian company drilling a water well at the location.He noted that the EPA is liaising closely with the Regional Environmental Officer as an assessment of the situation is being conducted.In June 2018, a similar occurrence at the Diamond New Housing Scheme which plastered several buildings with mud as a resident attempted to drill a well.The well was being dug by a resident of one of the affected houses when it exploded and spurted water, mud and methane gas continuously. It was believed that a pocket of methane gas exploded underground as a result of the drilling of the well.last_img read more

10-man Ghana held by Benin in Ismailia

first_imgJordan finished off the first half in a smashing way, planting the ball into the roof of the net after taking a delightful turn to evade a challenge from Olivier Verdon. Ghana had come from a goal down after a fast-paced opening ten minutes yielded two, one each for the West African rivals.Benin opened the scoring after just one minute and 44 seconds, Pote beating Richard Ofori from close range after racing into the box from 45 yards out and evading a challenge from Lumor Agbenyenu.Ghana responded just seven minutes later with a goal made from the Abedi Pele household. Jordan took on a run on the right with his cross deflected into his brother’s path. Andre controlled before taking a low shot on the turn planting the ball into the bottom left corner.This was Andre’s ninth overall AFCON goal. Also, the Ayew brothers have scored seven of Ghana’s last nine goals at the competition.The Black Stars were forced into a change 35 minutes into the game when Thomas Agyepong went out injured and was replaced by Samuel Owusu. Owosu almost made an impact three minutes after coming on, his run from midfield ending up in a left footed shot that went wide.This was just minutes before Jordan showed up with some moment of insane beauty.In the second half, Ghana’s resolve was slowed down by Boye’s second yellow, just nine minutes after the restart. Pote then completed his brace in the 63rd minute with a nifty backheel from the edge of the six yard box off a corner.Thomas Partey almost restored the lead for Ghana but his well taken freekick attracted an equally good save from Benin keeper Fabien Farnolle.The result leaves Cameroon at the summit of Group F on three points, Ghana and Benin trail on one point each with Guinea Bissau at the foot of the standings with no point.Ghana next play Cameroon on Saturday whilst Benin lock horns with Guinea Bissau also at the same venue.-By CAF Online 0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Benin opened the scoring after just one minute and 44 seconds, Pote beating Richard Ofori from close range after racing into the box from 45 yards out and evading a challenge from Lumor Agbenyenu.

Kings look a few years from throne

first_imgNHL: Crawford says defense must step up for team to make playoffs. By Matthew Kredell STAFF WRITER Jonathan Bernier might not be on the roster in a month, but he reflects the state of Kings hockey as the 2007-08 season begins. The team opens play Saturday against the Ducks in London with a freshness and hope, but also uncertainty. Like their 19-year-old goalie the Kings have potential, but might not yet be ready. Marc Crawford, entering his second year coaching the team, said his goal was making the playoffs. That would be a significant step from last season, when the Kings finished 27-41-14 and in fourth place in the Pacific Division. The Kings were among the most active teams in the offseason, adding a number of players who will contribute, but no superstars. They join a mostly young team. The projected top line consists of 20-year-old Anze Kopitar, 22-year-old Dustin Brown and 25-year-old Michael Cammalleri. All three performed well last season – with Cammalleri leading the club with 80 points – and are expected to improve. Kopitar could turn into the star the offense lacks. He scored 61 points in 72 games as a rookie. In an exhibition in Austria this week, he had a hat trick. “My personal goals are higher,” Kopitar said. “I don’t want to expect too much from the season, but I’m going in with a lot more confidence. I understand the game a little more.” Rob Blake is expected to captain the team. The 37-year-old defenseman with 17 years experience is past his prime but adds a solid, veteran presence. He will help mentor the Kings’ up-and-coming young defenseman, Jack Johnson, the 20-year-old who came up for five games last season. “I hope you see a big upgrade in our defensive game,” Crawford said. “You look at the stats where we have to improve. Our goals against has to be down. We can’t hope to be in the playoffs if we don’t get our goals against down.” The Kings allowed 3.38 goals per game last season, 27th out of 30 teams in the NHL. That’s where Bernier could come in. He has been the Kings’ best goaltender in the preseason but General Manager Dean Lombardi is understandably wary of ruining the team’s 2006 first-round selection by throwing him on the ice before he is ready. Few top NHL goalies have been regular starters at age 19. Patrick Roy played in 47 games for Montreal when he was 20, though that was after three years in juniors compared to one for Bernier. Grant Fuhr played 48 games for Edmonton in 1981-82, when he was 19, but spent half of the next season down in the minors. The Kings probably will keep Bernier through the first nine games as a tryout. At that time, they would have to send him to juniors or use a full year of his contract. If Bernier doesn’t start, the team likely will turn to Jason LaBarbera, who started 21 games for the Kings two years ago before spending last season in the minors. Jean Sebastien-Aubin, a free-agent acquisition, made the trip to London. Whether he spends the season with the Kings or in the minors depends on Bernier. The Kings sent their most experienced goalie, Dan Cloutier, to American Hockey League affiliate Manchester to rehab after missing much of the last two seasons with injuries. If the Kings try to recall Cloutier during the season, other teams will have the chance to claim him at half his $3.1 million salary. Other newcomers expected to contribute include center Michal Handzus, forwards Kyle Calder and Ladislav Nagy and defensemen Tom Preissing and Brad Stuart. The trips to Austria and London gave the players a chance to get acquainted. “We got to know each other a little bit and hopefully we’ll jell as a team and take off right from the beginning,” center Derek Armstrong said. Adding urgency to the Kings’ rebuilding quest is the opponent Saturday and Sunday. The rival Ducks, a 15-year-old franchise, won the Stanley Cup in June – something Kings fans have been after for 40 years. “When you’re going up against a Goliath like Anaheim down the street, it forces you to work harder,” Lombardi said. “It’s just human nature.” matthew.kredell@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Genocide resolution losing support

first_imgAlso this week, at least six Democrats withdrew their sponsorship of the bill and two other Democrats, Reps. Alcee Hastings of Florida and John Tanner of Tennessee, asked Pelosi to forgo the vote. Hastings, who has voted against combat funding for Iraq, and Tanner, a member of a conservative Democratic coalition known as the Blue Dogs, said they feared backlash from Turkey would cut off U.S. access to a critical air base. “More than half of the cargo flown into Iraq and Afghanistan comes through Incirlik Air Base and this base would be a key component of any plans for redeployment of our troops in the future,” the lawmakers wrote. Rep. Ike Skelton, D-Mo., chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, and Rep. Solomon Ortiz, D-Tex., sent Pelosi a similar letter last week. In response to last week’s approval of the resolution by the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Turkey recalled its ambassador in Washington back to Ankara and asked the Bush administration to stop the resolution from passing in a final floor vote. Turkey denies the deaths constituted genocide, saying that the toll has been inflated and that those killed were victims of civil war and unrest. At the Pentagon, Lt. Gen. Carter Ham, operations chief for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was asked whether the U.S. military was considering providing assistance to Turkey in the event that it went after the rebel Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, in northern Iraq. “It would be inappropriate for me from this standpoint to say we are ruling out or ruling in specific military options,” Ham said, adding that Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, and other commanders are watching the situation closely. “I don’t know specifically what they are planning to do if this matter continues to evolve,” Ham said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WASHINGTON – A House vote to label the century-old deaths of Armenians as genocide was in jeopardy Tuesday after several Democrats withdrew their support and sounded alarms it could cripple U.S. relations with Turkey. The loss of support is a major setback to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill, who have fiercely defended the resolution to Republicans and the Bush administration as a moral imperative in condemning the World War I-era killings of up to 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turks. President Bush called Pelosi on Tuesday to ask her not to call for a House vote on the resolution. “The president and the speaker exchanged candid views on the subject and the speaker explained the strong bipartisan support in the House for the resolution,” Pelosi spokesman Nadeam Elshami said, noting that Bush initiated the phone call. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Local Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, is the bill’s chief sponsor. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told reporters Tuesday that the plan remained to vote on the measure before Congress adjourns by the end of the year. But, he added, “there are a number of people who are revisiting their own positions and we’ll have to determine where everyone is,” he said. The most notable Democratic challenge mounted this week came from Rep. John Murtha, an anti-war ally of Pelosi, D-Calif., and chairman of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee. Murtha fought against a similar measure 20 years ago. “From my discussions with our military commanders and foreign policy experts, I believe that this resolution could harm our relations with Turkey and therefore our strategic interests in the region,” Murtha, D-Pa., said in an e-mailed statement on Tuesday. last_img read more
