Elections are imminent!

first_imgDear Editor,With the ruling of the CCJ out, many can now get on with their daily activities with one certainty. Elections are imminent!That being said and upon reading the leader of the opposition’s press release, I now wonder what must be going through the minds of those in the APNU/AFC coalition Government. On March 21, 2019, this Administration became an illegal Government and all projects awarded and all monies paid out are now considered an act of illegality. This should make anyone nervous to the tummy but not this coalition. They continue to parade in their land cruisers which are paid for by taxpayers, with undeserving gumption.If and when there is a change in Government, does this mean that these individuals will be prosecuted or can legal action be taken against them currently? After all, I am sure permission was not granted to spend our hard earned tax money after they became illegal. To what extent should we as a democracy extend leniency?Where are SOCU and SARA when you need them?Sincerely,Nicholas De Grootwlast_img read more

ACP Alves given emotional farewell

first_img…after 34 years of service to GFPServing and retired ranks of the Guyana Police Force on Wednesday evening gathered at the Central Immigration and Passport Office to bid farewell to Assistant Police Commissioner Dale Andrew Alves, who heads into retirement.With an impressive 34 years of service in the Guyana Police Force, Assistant Commissioner Alves functioned in many different areas, among which are the Tactical Services Unit (TSU), Commander of ‘G’ Division, and Deputy Commander of ‘A’ Division.Retiring as Deputy Chief Immigration Officer, Alves, who also served as a drill instructor at the Felix Austin Police College during his earlier years in the Force, has been referred to by many as “the Assistant Commissioner Extraordinaire”, and both senior and junior ranks from the Immigration Office fervently expressed admiration and gratitude to their outgoing Assistant Commissioner.Retired Assistant Police Commissioner Dale Andrew Alves with staff during his farewellWhile addressing the gathering, Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud noted that Alves had remarkably transitioned from a background in the tactical field, and was able to adapt and function incredibly well in the area of immigration, which requires exceptional people skills and tolerance.He posited that Alves would be missed, and remarked that Alves was one of the senior officers on whom he could have depended to get the job done.Assistant Commissioner, ‘Law Enforcement,’ Paul Williams; Assistant Commissioner, ‘Operations,’ Nigel Hoppie; Director of Prisons (ag), Gladwin Samuels, and other serving and retired senior officers of the Guyana Police Force also described Alves’s thinking as “critical”, and “out of the box”.However, the most impacting remarks were made by those of the staff of the Central Immigration and Passport Office. Through dance and poetry, the ranks sent emotional waves across the room, using bilingual skills, sharing past experiences, and genuinely signalling goodbye to a great man.In the end, he reciprocated as if he had not done enough; his ‘thank you’ artistically expressed.Assistant Commissioner Dale Andrew Alves proceeded on pre-retirement leave on February 7, and will be officially retired on April 1, 2018.He is succeeded by Senior Superintendent P. Langevine, who served as acting Deputy Chief Immigration Officer and Deputy Commander of ‘C’ Division.last_img read more

Ibrahimovic signs for Los Angeles Galaxy – reports

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United’s Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to sign for LA Galaxy, according to US media reports © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLos Angeles, United States, Mar 22 – Zlatan Ibrahimovic has signed for the Los Angeles Galaxy and could make his debut for the Major League Soccer side this month, US media reported on Thursday.The Los Angeles Times and Sports Illustrated both reported Ibrahimovic had inked a deal with the Galaxy shortly before Manchester United confirmed the Swedish star had been released from his Old Trafford contract. Sports Illustrated said Ibrahimovic’s move to California would be officially announced in a full-page advertisement in Friday’s edition of the Los Angeles Times.MLS rules allow clubs to sign three designated players who are not subject to salary limits, a rule introduced when David Beckham arrived in the league in 2007.However, because the Galaxy have already signed their designated players for the 2018 season, Ibrahimovic’s salary will be limited to around $1.5 million (1.2 million euros) according to the Sports Illustrated report.That represents a fraction of the reported £19 million ($26.8 million, 21.8 million euros) a season Ibrahimovic was paid after signing for United from Paris Saint-Germain in 2016. The Galaxy have a history of luring ageing stars to America with Beckham, Steven Gerrard and Robbie Keane among those to have made the move to Los Angeles. Former England international Ashley Cole is the club’s current captain.Ibrahimovic, 36, hasn’t featured at all for Jose Mourinho’s United side since being substituted at half-time in a 2-2 draw with Burnley on December 26.The Swede scored 28 goals in 46 appearances during a stunning first season in England before tearing knee ligaments in a Europa League tie against Anderlecht in April.His form was rewarded with an extension of his contract for a second season, but the £75 million ($105 million) signing of Romelu Lukaku saw him slip down the pecking order at Old Trafford.In a statement on Thursday, United said Ibrahimovic would leave the club with their blessing.“Manchester United confirms that it has agreed to the termination of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s contract with immediate effect,” United said.“Everyone at the club would like to thank Zlatan for his contribution to the team since his arrival and wishes him well for the future.”Ibrahimovic’s reported arrival in MLS comes at a time when clubs are increasingly turning away from the recent practice of signing veteran European stars already into their 30s.Several clubs have instead found success by looking to sign younger players from South America who view the league as a potential springboard for a move to Europe.Although the Galaxy are the most successful club in MLS history with a record five championships, their fortunes have dipped sharply in recent seasons.Last year the club finished bottom of the Western Conference with only eight wins from 34 games.It was only the fourth time the club had failed to reach the playoffs, and the first time it finished with the league’s wooden spoon.The Galaxy’s aura has also been diminished by the arrival this year of expansion side Los Angeles Football Club — who could potentially be Ibrahimovic’s first opponents when they play the Galaxy in a derby clash on March 31.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgMadeleine in Donegal, pictured second from left in April 2007. She disappeared in Portugal two weeks later.BREAKING NEWS: Portuguese authorities have approved Met Police plans to dig for evidence in the resort where Madeleine McCann vanished in 2007.Madeleine’s grandparents are from Donegal, and she visited here just weeks before she disappeared.Forensics officers will use ground penetrating radar equipment to aid the search at three sites in Praia da Luz, said Sky News. Sky’s Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt, speaking from the police investigators’ base in Faro, described the move as a “breakthrough” in the investigation.Last week, Kate McCann told Sky News she needs to know what happened to her daughter even if it was the “worst case scenario”.She said: “Madeleine’s either alive or she isn’t and we can’t change that.“Obviously our hope is that she’s alive and being well looked after but regardless of the outcome, we need to know. We all need to know.” Madeleine disappeared from the apartment she was staying in with her parents and two siblings on May 3, 2007. She was three years old at the time she vanished.In April, police revealed they were investigating five new cases in which young British girls were sexually abused during holiday home break-ins in the Algarve. POLICE TO BEGIN DIG IN SEARCH FOR MADELEINE McCANN was last modified: May 6th, 2014 by John2Share 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)last_img read more

Opportunities for profit in 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Trade, currency and geopolitical issues are putting much uncertainty in an already wavering commodity market, but one analyst says he still believes there will be opportunities for farmers to use the black pen this year when looking at their bottom line. Finalizing crop insurance will be a major factor in getting to that positive outcome.“Farmers need to utilize these products to protect themselves and get to a profitable level,” said Mike Zuzolo from Global Commodity Analytics. “The last thing a farmer wants this year is to have more uncertainty and worry after they plant, versus before they plant.”That is why Zuzolo is advising his clients to make hedging a priority. He says that seed technology, fertilizer and weed control are all very important to the farm plan, but marketing needs to be right at the top of the list.“The U.S. dollar is going to be even more important this year, in terms of what commodity upside we could have,” Zuzolo said. “A year ago, the soybeans were in the midst of a sharp rally because the dollar was going down, crude oil was sharply higher, we had South American weather and China was rebuilding their hog herd after severe flooding. We have some of those elements again this winter, but not all of them.”Early talks about the 2017 planting decision are pointing to corn needing to buy back acres, or more currently about soybeans selling some. Zuzolo believes the majority of the corn acres never left in the first place.“West of the Mississippi River I am seeing a massive discount on basis, up to 75 to 85 cents negative in the western Corn Belt,” Zuzolo said. “There is just no way that cash flows, so corn is still holding on to acres, especially given the recent soybean slide.”Looking well past 2017, China’s new Silk Road Initiative is also on Zuzolo’s mind. This move will look to strengthen Chinese trade, investment and infrastructure with more than 60 countries across Asia, Europe and East Africa.“I think this will become a very powerful, potentially strong demand-consumption initiative that is going to span the next 30 years,” Zuzolo said. “The Chinese are looking to spend $8 trillion in trying to develop those neighboring markets with commodity-intensive infrastructure projects and it’s certainly something that I will be keeping an eye on.”Zuzolo spoke in northwest Ohio at crop insurance meetings hosting by Williamson Insurance in early February.AUDIO: The Ohio Ag Net’s Ty Higgins visits with Mike Zuzolo about if he believes there are profit opportunities for 2017.Zeus Articlelast_img read more

4-H opioid display drug education

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The traveling display created by 4-H members may seem innocuous enough – a simple pedestal sink with a mirrored medicine cabinet mounted above, similar to what could be seen in bathrooms in almost any home in the region.But the question accompanying the display – “What’s in your medicine cabinet?” – may not be as easy for some Ohioans to answer.Ohio now leads the nation in opioid-related overdose deaths with a record 4,050 drug overdose deaths reported in 2016, a 33 percent increase from 2015, according to the Ohio Department of Health. Experts say misuse of prescription opioids is one of the strongest risk factors for starting heroin use, with three out of four new heroin user reporting abusing prescription opioids.The 4-H members who created the medicine cabinet display want to get the word out about prescription misuse to try to prevent the next potential user from adding to Ohio’s growing opioid crisis. The cabinet includes prescription bottles labeled with drug abuse facts and information as part of their work as Ohio 4-H Health Heroes.The goal, said 15-year-old Molly Rubio, a 4-H member from Greene County who works with the medicine cabinet display, is to attract attention about the issue and engage the public in discussions on how to prevent opioid abuse.“The message is clear — look in the mirror — the face of opioid addiction staring back at you could be yours,” Rubio said. “Open the medicine cabinet and those prescription pain pills could be your entry to addiction.”Rubio is among a group of high school and college students who make up the Ohio 4-H Health Heroes. Ohio 4-H is the youth development program of Ohio State University ExtensionThe medicine cabinet display is a project of the Ohio 4-H and was funded through a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation through the National 4-H Council, said Theresa Ferrari, a 4-H youth development specialist with OSU Extension.The display is now being used by 4-H members at fairs and other events around the state as a means of encouraging talk among young people about the opioid crisis, she said.“There are so many misconceptions about who uses opioids,” Ferrari said. “This mirrored medicine cabinet display is one way to illustrate that it’s not who you think it is, it could be you.“Our goal is to raise awareness about the opioid crisis in Ohio and to teach people how to properly dispose of prescription opioid medications, and inform people about resources in the community.”The need for such education and prevention is significant.Opioid drugs, including prescription painkillers and heroin, killed more than 33,000 people nationwide in 2015, more than any year on record, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There were 3,050 overdose deaths in Ohio in 2015, with 58.2 percent of the deaths blamed on the use of fentanyl and its derivatives, an opioid 50 times stronger than heroin, officials said.Madelyn Smith, a 4-H student in the 9th grade from Blacklick said the interactive medicine cabinet display has been a really effective way for her and other 4-H members to talk to teens across the state.“While people generally seem to be aware about the opioid issue, they are shocked when they hear the numbers of how many people the issue actually affects and by how many people are dying,” Smith said. “This is something that we need to talk about, especially to our peers, who seem to respond better when they hear this kind of information from people their own age.”In addition to the medicine cabinet, the display includes a set of trivia-styled questions to quiz participants on their knowledge of opioid facts. The questions are aimed at teens and adults, while a second set of questions are aimed at younger people.For example, questions aimed at older youth and adults include: “Ohio House Bill 4 permits the dispensing of what overdose reversal drug without a prescription by a pharmacist?” and, “True of False: Prescription opioids are far safer than illicit drugs?”Questions for the younger set include those such as: “Good or bad choice: Cindy takes more medicine than instructed,” and “John discovers an object that may be medicine or candy. He decides to immediately give it to an adult.”The display is even more effective because 4-H members who are trained to advocate about medication safety and drug abuse prevention staff it, Ferrari said.“Teens listen to each other better than they listen to adults,” she said. “We aren’t health providers so we don’t offer treatment.“Rather we focus on prevention and advocacy. This is 4-H’s niche — we work to educate teens to be leaders and help them learn how to make a difference.”The medicine cabinet will next be on display at the Farm Science Reviewlast_img read more

Twitter Acquires Fluther in Move to Recommend Tweets

first_imgTwitter has acquired the team at question-and-answer site Fluther. According to both companies, the Fluther site will remain in tact, though not in development, as the four developers and one designer that form Fluther’s core team move over to Twitter.Over recent months, Twitter has often repeated that it is more than just a site for those who want to produce content, it is a destination for content consumption. This acquisition could do well to move Twitter further in this direction and help to rise appropriate content to the top of users’ streams.As Twitter says in its announcement, this is a primary goal of the acquisition, which focuses on talent and not product:During our conversations with Fluther’s team, we were continually impressed by their technical talent, entrepreneurial spirit, and much of the thinking behind the question-and-answer product they’ve spent the last couple of years building. When the Fluther team joins us they will focus on helping users discover the most relevant content on Twitter. Their product,, is not part of the acquisition and will remain separate from Twitter.The members of the Fluther team that will be moving over to Twitter are Ben Finkel, Andrew McClain, Tim Trueman, Richard Henry and Cameron Dutro.Already, Twitter has found some success with recommendation tools that suggest other users to follow. If the same could be done for content, the company might find more mainstream success. If much of Facebook’s value has been in surfacing the best content from across the river of news from friends’ content, Twitter would do well to enable users to more easily discover the best content from across its more-open social graph and site.
