The day after…

first_img…THE meetingIn years to come, your Eyewitness believes the meeting yesterday between President David Granger and Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo will become our local equivalent of the one between Churchill, Stalin and Truman to divvy up Germany after WWII. The disagreements at that “Potsdam Conference” led directly to the Cold War, from which we’re still recovering.And in like manner, the disagreements between Granger and Jagdeo will colour the politics of the two blocs that compete politically and every other “ally” in Guyana, for the next four decades. ‘Cause whichever party will be in power next year – when the billions of barrels of oil start to flow into the world’s oil market and the billions of (US) dollars start to flow into (hopefully) our Treasury – will be able to ensure they remain in power for at least that long. And it’s for this reason, your Eyewitness never held out any hope of Granger going along with ANY of the conditions Jagdeo set as a prerequisite for the meeting.Right off the bat, Granger didn’t agree to announce a date for the elections AHEAD of the meeting as demanded by Jagdeo. He merely said he’d meet “to discuss the issues” the latter had raised. What’s to discuss? Jagdeo had already said the PPP was willing to vote along with the Government to cobble together the required 2/3 of the National Assembly to extend the date to April 30 – the life of the voters’ list. Once Granger hadn’t done that…it’s house-to-house registration, baby – meaning elections in 2020!! Why then, even show up?? Well, Jagdeo did say he “wasn’t optimistic” as he went into the meeting!!Jagdeo’s second demand was that no new contracts be awarded. This ain’t gonna happen, even if hell freezes over. Which, we know, is impossible with the Devil stoking his fires just as vigorously as the PNC partisans here, who’ve branded the PPP as worse than the Devil!! The PNC will just smirk, when the next batch of contracts is doled out that they’re allowed under the doctrine of “necessity”. Who’s to decide conclusively what is “necessary” in public projects, like, say, even the new Demerara Harbour Bridge? Certainly not the courts!! And the PNC faithful will be duly rewarded, since they’ll pass on their cut to the PNC campaign!!No new agreements, loans and leases?? Ditto as above!! The biggest snicker was over the demand that there’ll be “no abuse of state resources for partisan purposes/activities”! This will be even slipperier to pin down than the above!!Finally, there was the demand for the Opposition to have access to the State media!!Ha!! Over Moses’ dead body!!…two years laterThe saga of DNA testing in Guyana – to match crime scene human evidence to nab perpetrators of crime – epitomises the abject failure of Khemraj Ramjattan, and his government on crime. He’d lambasted the PPP upon assuming office in 2015 – especially his predecessor, Clement Rohee – for not equipping the Forensic Lab they’d begun constructing, with a DNA testing machine.Then he evidently fell into a black hole for the next two years and finally promised one at the end of 2017 ‘within months”. In Feb 2018, he swore the equipment would be in “by June” and technicians were being trained.Well, 2018 came and went and here he is, on the verge of being expelled into oblivion after Charrandas’s “yes, yes, yes” NCM vote, and Ramjattan suddenly remembers his promise! And says the machine will be here “soon”!!Now if you can’t even keep track of a single machine that’s crucial for your fight against crime, how can anyone believe this government – when they insist they’re “winning” that battle!!They’re just massaging statistics!!…the union vs RUSAL face-offSeems we have a “Mexican Standoff”, between the bauxite union and RUSAL’s management. The PNC Government – with elections in sight – has sided with the workers.Even allowing them to ILLEGALLY block the Berbice River!!last_img read more

10-point suggestion to curb alcoholism

first_imgDear Editor,Our Humble Pranaam and Namaskar.We of the Mahatma Gandhi Organisation and the Gandhi Youth Organisation (Woolford Avenue) would like to sincerely thank Messrs Vishnu Bisram, Annan Boodram and Dr Niamatalli for their timely and important contributions in the print media on the  epidemic of alcoholism wreaking havoc in our society.Our organisation would also like to note herein the numerous interventions made by Bhai Vidyaratha Kissoon on the subject imploring the authorities, manufacturers and distributors of alcohol in Guyana to take steps to bring the situation under control, seemingly to no avail.Our constitution contains clauses in the aims and objectives section dealing with the need for action to be taken by our membership to advocate against the use and abuse of alcohol.As one of the oldest registered Hindu organisations in this country (since 1953) we recognise that there is a major crisis in the country as more and more people turn to this dangerous substance to somehow “numb” themselves from their daily trials and tribulations.We wish to state that we are available and open to joining in any national effort or initiative to counsel, guide, advise, and admonish our fellow Guyanese about the dangers of this substance as highlighted by the erstwhile gentlemen already mentioned.We call on all Hindu bodies and temples and indeed all other social and religious entities to join the drive against the use of alcohol and to educate persons about the dangers of consuming/abusing alcohol.While we have not carried out any scientific study on the problem, we wish to recommend the following course of action:1) Relevant government agencies to meet and commission a study (if not already done) on the cost both socially and financially of alcohol abuse. If the study has been done then publish the results.2) Convene seminars and other similar fora to sensitise the public on the dangers of this product.3) Increase taxes on all alcohol-based products (except for medicinal purposes). In the United Kingdom empirical evidence has demonstrated that increasing taxes on alcohol has had the effect of reducing consumption.4) Enforce drink and drive laws which will have effect of deterring persons from consuming alcohol and then proceeding to drive. The cost to the country in lives and limbs lost due to accidents caused by drunk drivers must be astronomical.5) Legislate as is done in the cigarette industry for warnings to be prominently placed on alcoholic products about dangers to health.6) Put in place laws to prevent the advertising or selling  of alcoholic beverages in activities involving school activities.7) Enforce rigorous laws relating to opening and closing times of “rum shops” and “beer gardens” and prosecute and fine those who violate the law including suspension of licenses.8) Restrict granting of new licences to persons desirous of selling alcohol.9) Intensive campaign in schools should be carried out on the dangers of this substance as research has shown that if teenagers get “hooked” on this product, then it is very difficult and costly to get them to stop consuming it. At the same time persons who have never used alcohol say up to 22-24 years old are very unlikely to start consuming it after this age hence the importance of nipping the problem in the bud.10) Negotiate with or legislate for manufacturers and distributors  of alcohol to contribute say 2% of their sales  to fund rehabilitation programmes.These are suggestions but previous governments have not shown much interest in alleviating this problem, instead being more reactive than proactive and we hope to have some decisive action by this government and other stakeholders.Yours sincerely,Pandit SawhChristopher PersaudMahatma GandhiOrganisationWoolford Avenuelast_img read more

Industry motorcyclist killed in early morning accident

first_imgChristopher Singh of Lot 358 Area ‘J’ Industry, East Coast Demerara (ECD) was killed at sometime after 07:00h on Thursday, after a mini-bus reportedly struck the motor cycle he was driving on the East Coast Highway.Dead: Christopher SinghAccording to information reaching the Guyana Times the 62-year-old security guard was heading out of the University of Guyana (UG) Road, and had already turned right in an easterly direction on the East Coast Highway when a mini-bus travelling up the East Coast from Georgetown struck the motor cycle from behind. The bus had just crossed over to the northern carriageway when the accident occurred.Singh’s son, Ram, related that the bus driver is claiming that Singh rode head-on into the bus. “But that can’t be, because if that was the case then the bike would have had damages in front; but the damages were at the back, left side,” Ram explained as he showed this newspaper some parts that were broken off from the motorcycle.Ram also said the police were not forthcoming with information about his father’s death, and at the station were asking questions about his properties and bank account.“Something nah look right, because the police at the station is saying that the man didn’t had on helmet, but when we go at the scene, another policeman there told us that somebody picked up the helmet. And when we check the bag that we collect from the hospital with his belongings, we find the helmet,” the son said.He further pointed out that the helmet was broken. Ram believes that his father was wearing the protective gear, and when he fell after being struck by the mini-bus, it probably broke.Singh’s distraught wife told this publication that after receiving the news of the accident, she rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC), where she found out that her husband had already died. When she saw her husband’s body, his limbs seemed intact, but there was blood on his nose. Upon further examination, a gaping hole was discovered at the back of his head.The family is adamant that negligence had caused the death of their loved one, since he had been left for some time lying unattended outside of the Accident and Emergency Unit at the GPHC before he finally received medical attention.“When I went outside (at the hospital), a man said, ‘I sorry for that big man. A bus man bring he and left he on the bench outside Emergency under the shed.’ He said they had he there a lil while before he get medical attention,” the son related.Lilly, the dead man’s daughter, cried, “If they had paid attention and look after him, they would have been able to save him, because he was alive when he go to the hospital. The bus won’t carry a dead man and put him at the hospital…But because they didn’t look he, they didn’t pay attention, that’s why he is dead today.”Singh’s body is at the GPHC mortuary awaiting a post mortem, which is scheduled for today. The driver of the mini-bus remains in police custody at the Sparendaam Stationlast_img read more

Sheehan plans protest of war despite hospitalization

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WACO, Texas – Peace mom Cindy Sheehan spent the night in a hospital for a gynecological procedure and treatment of dehydration but said Saturday that wouldn’t stop her protest against the Iraq war on land she bought near President Bush’s Crawford ranch. Sheehan was listed in stable condition at Providence Health Center in Waco, about 20 miles east of Crawford. She said she could be released later in the day but probably would miss an afternoon barbecue at Camp Casey, the protesters’ campsite named for her soldier son who was killed in Iraq in 2004. “Everything will still go on,” Sheehan, 49, told The Associated Press. “I hope I can get there soon.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhy these photogenic dumplings are popping up in Los AngelesThe anti-war demonstration is to continue through Sept. 3, although Bush’s 10-day ranch vacation is to end today. Sheehan returned to Texas on Friday after a few days in Seattle at the Veterans for Peace convention. She planned to resume the war protest she started Aug. 6, the first anniversary of the beginning of her 26-day peace vigil that drew thousands of anti-war demonstrators and spurred counter-demonstrations by Bush supporters. Instead, friends took her from the airport to the hospital. After being on a liquid diet as part of the nationwide “Troops Home Fast” hunger strike, Sheehan had been treated at a Seattle emergency room Thursday, and ate for the first time in about 37 days, said her spokeswoman Tiffany Burns. Doctors in Waco stopped uterine bleeding, gave her a blood transfusion and planned a biopsy, she said. Sheehan was dehydrated again Friday, but said it was probably from the bleeding. Sheehan paid for a 5-acre lot about 7 miles from Bush’s ranch last month so protesters would have a place to gather while the president is at his ranch. Last year, she started out camped in ditches along the road leading to Bush’s ranch, until county officials banned roadside parking and camping. A sympathetic landowner then let the group gather on his 1-acre lot near the ranch.last_img read more

Airport security may be fast scan

first_imgIn 2003, TSA cut most of its $75 million research budget to try to address a deficit. Its research office was later consolidated into DHS’s research arm, which has failed to spend $200 million from past years, leading lawmakers to rescind the money this summer. “The TSA is groping around, moving money,” said Rep. Peter DeFazio of Oregon, a senior Democrat on the Homeland Security Committee. “They don’t have enough money to have enough employees, and they can’t buy new equipment.” Even as the recent British terror plot was unfolding, Homeland Security quietly tried to take away $6 million that was supposed to be spent this year developing new technology for detecting explosives. There will never be enough money or improvements in technology, said Richard Lanza, senior research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “We’re always faced with this unpleasant and nasty fact: People are going to come up with new explosives which won’t be detected by this,” Lanza said. “You’re just trying to make it harder for the bad guys.” Among the newer technologies, the puffer is a tall, clear cylinder that looks like a Star Trek transporter. Passengers chosen largely at random are hit with quick blasts of air – not quite enough to ruffle the hair – to dislodge trace particles of explosives or narcotics from a passenger’s skin and clothing. An instant microscopic analysis determines whether the passenger has been exposed to illicit substances. In the future, luggage will be “sniffed” for minute traces of explosives or bombarded with neutrons, subjecting it to CT scans, which differs from traditional X-rays in that they take hundreds of pictures of an object from a variety of angles. Passengers at San Francisco’s international terminal can glimpse a “Checkpoint of the Future” as envisioned by GE Security. The company has set up camp next to the checkpoint of today, a working security zone where plastic bins clatter and passengers shuffle through metal detectors. The GE “lab” is a nonworking checkpoint where the company is researching and tweaking its gear in hopes of winning government approvals and ironing out technical glitches. Much of that gear is mock-up equipment where company officials can demonstrate the dream: a half-minute process, starting with a device that scans a passenger’s finger for explosives and drug particles. A conveyor belt would use CT to peer at carry-on items. A body scan would look through clothing for knives, guns and bombs. A shoe scanner would end the need to kick off footwear. GE Security said it has spent more than $100 million over the past five years in developing next-generation aviation screening technologies and products. The government is particularly interested in developing the ability to quickly analyze what’s inside liquid containers after the recent discovery of a London-based plot to bring down airliners using explosives disguised as common household items, said Jennifer Peppin, a spokeswoman for the TSA’s Western region. Rapiscan Systems Neutronics and Advanced Technologies of Santa Clara is trying to perfect a device that can peer into bottles, books and shoes and identify explosives inside. The scanner, slightly larger than a tipped-over phone booth, hits the object with neutrons and analyzes the gamma rays that bounce back, telling the machine which elements are present. One recent afternoon, Pat Shea, Rapiscan’s chief operating officer, placed a bottle of wine in the machine’s drawer and started the analysis. A whirring sound followed for about 40 seconds, followed by an analysis: The bottle indeed contained wine. Despite all the years and dollars his company has poured into research and development, Shea cautions against an over-reliance on technology. “No one device is a silver bullet,” he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN FRANCISCO – At the airport check-in of tomorrow, “getting through security” should take 30 seconds. Passengers breeze through a series of scanners that probe for explosives, weapons, even drugs. Shoes stay on feet, laptops in cases. A machine confirms that a bottle of wine is wine, and not a disguised cocktail of bomb ingredients. The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks prompted a clampdown at the nation’s airports and a new era of aggravation at security checkpoints. They also accelerated a race to develop better screening technology, research that has advanced with each thwarted terrorism plot. Some of these devices are already snooping through your luggage as part of a 2002 congressional mandate that all checked baggage be scrutinized for explosives, but technical glitches and funding problems stand in the way of other technologies. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhy these photogenic dumplings are popping up in Los AngelesKey questions remain: Are these ready to handle thousands of passengers per hour, and their belongings? “Some things are imminently deployable. Some things are further off,” said Steve Hill, spokesman for GE Security, the unit of General Electric Co. that makes transportation security equipment. “We are not light years off.” Although one futuristic device known as the “puffer” already is in use at San Francisco International and 36 other airports, the government halted its continued rollout recently because of concerns about reliability. The Transportation Security Administration declined to elaborate. Critics also question whether the Bush administration is investing enough, even as it spent nearly $1 billion in fiscal 2006 on explosive-detection equipment for checked luggage and checkpoint screening. TSA and the Department of Homeland Security have repeatedly failed to spend tens of millions of dollars that Congress earmarked for new airport security equipment. last_img read more

Everton target winning Premier League and competing in Europe in next decade

first_img Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions 2 Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move Latest Football News no dice Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won Brands receives his promotion after first joining Everton in May Barrett-Baxendale has very high ambitions for the club Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury ADVICE REVEALED Everton have been set the target of winning the Premier League and playing Champions League football in their new stadium in the next decade by the club’s chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale.Barret-Baxendale, who was appointed in May – sacking then-manager Sam Allardyce and director of football Steve Walsh on her second day – has overseen huge changes in the structure of the club at all levels. Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? MONEY “It means competing regularly in the Champions League and it means doing all of this in a world-class, world-renowned football stadium.“This is an extremely challenging goal. It is very much a long-term goal for our club but it is vital we are ambitious and that we deliver performance on and off the pitch that drives our club forward to achieve our ambitions.“I acknowledge our vision is challenging, and the barriers to entry are indeed daunting, but we are Everton and we must all be focused and driven to meet that challenge.”The man charged with overseeing the move towards a Premier League title challenge is not manager Marco Silva but current director of football Marcel Brands. BEST OF huge blow 2 Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card She is also highly ambitious and as part of her ‘new broom’ approach has laid down a series of challenging targets, befitting the status of their proposed new £500million stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, she wants the Toffees to aspire to.However, in order to do that they have to dramatically improve their revenue streams as for every £1 available for top-six clubs to spend Everton currently have 41p.In her maiden address to the club’s general meeting, held at Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall, Barrett-Baxendale told assembled shareholders the vision was to be “challenging at the top of the Premier League and competing at the highest level in European competitions”.“Ultimately this means challenging for domestic titles and trophies, not only to win cups, but to win Premier League titles too,” she added. RANKED REVEALED Barrett-Baxendale announced at the meeting Brands, who arrived in May to replace Walsh, had been appointed to the board of directors and has been put in charge of promoting a long-term, club-wide strategy.Everton have learned lessons from the failure of the Walsh experiment, who was the club’s first director of football in their history, and Barrett-Baxendale felt putting their faith in Brands was the right thing to do.“This appointment (to the board) further cements the importance and permanence of the position of director of football within our structure,” she said.“Marcel is now responsible and accountable for delivering the long-term, holistic, football strategy and principles from the academy through to the first team.”last_img read more

Pogba drops biggest hint yet he wanted to join Real Madrid in the transfer window

first_img 2 Getty Images – Getty Although the window across Europe slammed shut on Monday evening, the 26-year-old ‘liked’ a comment on Instagram asking the midfielder to move to the Bernabeu.Pogba has remained quiet throughout the entire window and this is the clearest indication yet he wanted out of Man United.Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted the former Juventus star was committed to the club who broke the world record transfer fee in 2016 to sign him.Speaking after the 1-1 draw with Southampton, the Norwegian said: “I think we as a team after about half an hour started giving sloppy balls away and Paul was one of them,” said the boss at St Mary’s. Paul Pogba has dropped the biggest hint yet he wanted to join Real Madrid during the summer transfer window.The Manchester United midfielder featured on the club’s tour to Australia and even started the first four games of the Premier League season.But speculation about his future at Old Trafford has raged for the best part of a year and it seems as though the World Cup winner was keen to leave. @Instagram 2center_img Teddy Sheringham calls for Manchester United to ditch Paul Pogba“He wasn’t any different to anyone else, we as a team didn’t play well but in the last 20 minutes or half an hour he did create loads for us going forward.“Everyone expects everything from him every game, he has to defend, he has to attack, he has to win headers, he has to dribble past people, he has to make passes. That’s just Paul and he’ll thrive on that.“Paul Pogba will be playing for us.” The midfielder liked this comment asking him to come to the Spanish capital Paul Pogba appears to have confirmed his desire to leave Manchester United Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:40Loaded: 24.22%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:40 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
