No Comments on Women Police Association hosts annual hat competition

first_imgThe Guyana Association of Women Police (GAWP) on Saturday hosted its annual Hat Show and CompetitionOne of the participants in the elegant category of the competition displaying her hatwith the aim of providing bursaries for six students who would be writing the Secondary School Entrance Examination (SSEE) and in celebration of Guyana’s 50th Independence anniversary.The event hosted at Police Officers’ Mess Annexe, Eve Leary, saw children, women young and old, beautifully attired in colourful dresses, complimented by exquisitely designed hats.The atmosphere was one of delight with many ‘oohs and ahhs’ by onlookers as each participant walked in with their hat displays which mainly depicted Guyana’s diverse culture.The competition consisted of three main categories – elegant, comical, and children.Those participating were from the general public and also youth groups from D Division of the Guyana Police Force.The winners were all awarded.The event culminated with song and dance and the audience feasting on tea and a variety of dishes.Speaking to Guyana Times, event coordinator Superintendent Maxine Graham explained that the event started last year is focused on providing finances for students who excelled at the SSEE examination to further their studies.“The Police Force would usually give bursaries to some children that are writing the grade six exams each year, especially those who excel and they would usually get from one to fifth prizes.”Graham explained that GAWP would normally award only five students with bursaries but that the association wanted to do more, thus hosting the hat show and competition.“We at the association wanted to do more for the students, so in order to raise funds which will enable us to do this; we have decided to make this hat show and competition an annual event. So that means that we will have another child that will benefit from our bursary award”.The coordinator hopes with the continued support of the Police Force and the general public, next year can see the event being hosted yet again.Also speaking with this publication, one parent expressed delight and appreciation for the interest GAWP has shown towards assisting students who are not financially stable.“I want to thank them for this because there are a lot of parents that cannot afford to allow their child to pursue a higher education and this will be very helpful for them”.last_img read more

Power outages plague West Coast Demerara residents

No Comments on Power outages plague West Coast Demerara residents

first_imgThe Regional Chairman of Region Three (Essequibo Island-West Demerara) Julius Faerber is calling for an intervention by the Guyana Power and Light Incorporated (GPL) in reducing the number of power outages that have been occurring in the region.According to the Chairman, he has been receiving numerous calls from residents of the region who have divulged that they are being affected greatly by the constant power outages.According of the reports Faerber received, the power outages are affecting the public water system. “As soon as the blackouts come on, the water also stops coming so that means that they have to do without the water.”He said that some residents who still have access to water during the outages say that the water would not be potable. According to information reaching Guyana Times, the region for the last week alone, has experienced approximately nine power outages.Speaking with a few residents, this publication was told that not only are the outages affecting the water system but it is damaging their electrical appliances.Avril Samuels, a resident of the Stewartville, West Coast Demerara (WCD) related that her television “blow” during one of the outage.“I just saw the light starting to blink and I thought it was a power shortage so I was about to turn the TV off but before I could, I saw a red flash and I smelt smoke…is blow the TV blow because of the blackout,” the woman explained.Leslyn Thompson of Vreed-en-Hoop, WCD, said she is highly annoyed as she is a business woman and the constant outages have been contributing to some of her goods being spoilt.“I does sell chicken and I lost a lot because the blackouts are coming on so much and the meat not getting to freeze,” she explained.This publication tried to get in contact with GPL for a comment but was unsuccessful in doing so.Region TwoMeanwhile, GPL has issued a notice in the daily newspaper advising residents of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) that there will be load shedding in the region.According to the power company, the base load generators at Anna Regina, are in immediate need of remedial works and as such, the company will be rationing electricity in the region.The notice stated that Three Friends to La Union will have no power today from 18:00 to 20:h, while on Monday, May 30, Bounty Hall to Charity will be off the grid from 18:00h to 22:00h.Again on Tuesday, May 31, Three Friends to La Union will have no electricity from 18:00h to 20:00h and on Wednesday, June 1, Bounty Hall to Charity will be off the grid from 18:00h to 22:00h.last_img read more

Mayor of Mabaruma can perform duties − AG

No Comments on Mayor of Mabaruma can perform duties − AG

first_img…despite court order to quash appointmentIn light of the court order which quashed the appointment of the Mayor and Deputy Mayor in the township of Mabaruma, concerns were raised over the fact that the Mayor was still carrying out mayoral duties at Mabaruma.Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams disclosed that there is nothing preventing the Mayor from performing duties.According to Williams, the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Mabaruma could continue their functions de facto, that is “unless and until the court rules”.He said they were sworn in and as such they should carry out their duties: “You must remember that the Mayor was sworn in by the President, in other words, the Mayor has already then embarked upon office.”Williams further explained that until an election is held to resolve the tie which forced Communities Minster Ronald Bulkan to intervene in selecting a Mayor for Mabaruma, the Mayor will continue to carry out his duties.“When there is a tie, that is where we divide, under the Municipal and Councils District Act when there is an equality of votes or tie, there is a provision saying that there should be an election to resolve that tie until then the Mayor should continue his functions”, Williams explained.According to Williams, former Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Anil Nandlall omitted the fact in his court appeal, that it is the duty of Minister Bulkan to elect one of the two persons contesting for the position of Mayor to act until the election is re-held.“Mr Nandlall when he pleaded in the court, omitted or concealed from the court the most important provision which is Section 13:07 which says that elections could only be held under the Local Authorities Election Acts, the provisions of that act is applicable to electing two persons, one of two persons contesting for the position of Mayor” said Williams.This “important fact” William’s said, was omitted by Nandlall because he recognized the implications of that provision.Meanwhile, Williams had pointed out that Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) has no role in electing a Mayor and Deputy Mayor.The role of GECOM is to conduct elections, he noted, whether General and Regional or Local Government. In the case of the latter, it is done pursuant to the provisions of the Local Authorities Elections (Amendment) Act Chapter 28:03.GECOM’s remit is limited to the election of councillors in both systems, Municipality and Neighbourhood Democratic Council.When the Local Government Elections was completed, GECOM’s remit also was at an end upon the issuance of a Certificate of Election to the Councillors, Williams said.After Minister of Communities Ronald Bulkan named Smith as the Mayor of Mabaruma, where the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) and the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) gained equal number of seats, the PPP/C moved to the High Court to challenge the Minister’s action which violated the Municipal and District Councils Act Chapter 28:01Section 13(6) of the Municipal and District Councils Act which states that, “on account of equality of votes, the Town Clerk shall appoint a date not later than December 28 in the same year for the election of the Mayor from the tied Candidates by the voters whose names appear on the register of voters, for the time being in force, for the city.”Justice Diana Insanally heard the matter and nullified Bulkan’s appointment.last_img read more

Court to Decide Jurisdiction Claim

No Comments on Court to Decide Jurisdiction Claim

first_imgThe Commercial Court at the Temple of Justice yesterday received a five-page “proposed ruling” from state lawyers and lawyers representing Prestige and Alliance Motor Corporation, which now compels the court to decide whether or not it has a subject matter jurisdiction in a US$10.7 million transaction that occurred prior to its establishment in 2010. The submission was due to an instruction from the three-judge panel for the lawyers to do so. Subject matter jurisdiction refers to the nature of the claim or controversy, a legal expert explained to the Daily Observer. “If the court does not have jurisdiction, the defendant may challenge the suit on that ground, and the suit may be overturned in a subsequent action by one of the parties in the case,” the expert added. The Commercial Court was established by legislation in 2010 as a specialized court to provide efficient and effective dispute resolution in commercial cases throughout the county. But government lawyers have argued that the court lacks jurisdiction to hear or pass judgment on the US$10.7 million vehicle debt lawsuit brought against the government by Prestige and Alliance Motor Corporation, owned by a Lebanese businessman, George Haddad. In counter argument, Haddad’s lawyers maintained that the court has jurisdiction to determine their complaint against the government. Sherman and Sherman Law Firm, representing the company, filed an “Action of Debt” against the Liberian government for allegedly crediting a fleet of vehicles from 2003 to 2006, totaling over US$10.7 million, which the government has failed to settle. Besides the cars, the lawyers further alleged that the company provided spare parts during the transaction with the government, and subsequently asked the court to give their client justice. The case continues.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Baghdad enclave mayor wounded

No Comments on Baghdad enclave mayor wounded

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Al-Daraji is a soft-spoken sheik whose office has been a regular stop for U.S. military officers in Sadr City. Early this month, U.S. and Iraqi forces moved into Sadr City and have been trying to establish two garrisons there. Throughout Baghdad, U.S. forces plan to operate out of 100 neighborhood garrisons in the next month as part of the new offensive to secure the city, the American commander in charge of Baghdad said Thursday. Nearly 80 such garrisons are already operating. The increase in outposts is part of the plan to put U.S. troops back on the streets, living among Iraqis and making their presence felt, he said. Thousands of additional U.S. troops are expected to enter the Baghdad area by May to bolster forces here. “So far, the indicators are they’ll do real well,” the American commander, Maj. Gen. Joseph F. Fil Jr., said of the garrisons. “But we do expect them to be challenged.” The expansion of the garrisons is essentially a repudiation of the military policy of the last two years, in which U.S. troops spent more time on bases and much less time patrolling or interacting with Iraqis. BAGHDAD, Iraq – Gunmen ambushed a convoy on Thursday that was carrying the mayor of the sprawling Shiite area known as Sadr City, seriously wounding him and complicating U.S. efforts to rein in a powerful Shiite militia there. The attack killed Lt. Col. Muhammad Motashar, the director of the Sadr City police station. The mayor, Rahim al-Daraji, has led negotiations with the Americans over what to do about the militia, the Mahdi Army, which has rebelled twice against the Iraqi government and the U.S. military. Al-Daraji has lobbied the Americans to finance reconstruction projects that would bring jobs to his impoverished neighborhood, an approach U.S. commanders say could help disarm the largely unemployed men in the Mahdi Army. last_img read more

No Comments on Fans hail Neymar as PSG stroll to opening win

first_img“Paris is magic,” said Neymar as he vowed to “win lots of trophies” for his mega-rich employers following his 222-million-euro ($264m) transfer from Barcelona.Neymar has been bought to bring Champions League glory to PSG’s Qatari owners and on this evidence he won’t be needed for humdrum domestic matters as the newly-promoted visitors were nonchalantly dismissed.“This (signing) shows the ambition from both sides: we’re trying to improve and for Neymar this bet is also to take a step forward,” said PSG coach Unai Emery.Paris Saint-Germain’s forward Edinson Cavani celebrates after scoring a goal on August 5, 2017 at the Parc des Princes stadium, in Paris © AFP / THOMAS SAMSON“Our ambition is to get closer to winning trophies and the Champions League is one of those.”Last season’s top scorer Edinson Cavani opened the scoring three minutes before the break with Javier Pastore notching the second 10 minutes from time of a one-sided affair.“There was a great atmosphere, the fans pushed us to win and I hope they will continue to do so the whole season,” added Emery.“We controlled the match with our possession and chances.“If there had been more clarity, we could have scored more goals and had an easier win.”Amiens had given notice of the extent of their ambition right from kick-off, rugby-style pumping the ball deep into PSG territory and out of play for a throw-in.Paris Saint-Germain’s forward Javier Pastore (R) fights for the ball during a French L1 football match against Amiens on August 5, 2017 © AFP / THOMAS SAMSONThereafter they spent most of the match camped on the edge of their own area.Six minutes in and PSG carved Amiens open with slick passing to put Cavani in on goal, but the Uruguayan slipped his shot just past the post.Like Arsenal in the Premier League, PSG were often guilty of over-playing the ball, and when Angel Di Maria slotted into an empty net after a mesmerising move, it was ruled out for Cavani having been offside when playing the penultimate pass.There was a festive atmosphere and an almost casual confidence amongst the PSG players that the goals would come as they wove intricate patterns around the pitch, multiplying the tricks and flicks as Amiens’ overworked defenders held on grimly.On a rapier counter-attack, Di Maria’s cross was cut out as he tried to pick out a return pass to Pastore rather than shoot himself.– Amiens carved open –Lyon’s forward Nabil Fekir shoots and scores a penalty on August 5, 2017 © AFP / PHILIPPE DESMAZESWith PSG’s embarrassment of attacking riches closely guarded, it was midfielder Adrien Rabiot who found space from Cavani’s pass but his shot was blocked by a sliding Prince Gouano.Full-back Leyvan Kurzawa was next to go close with a header that sailed just over.And so it was Cavani who showed them how it was done, controlling a cross from league debutant Dani Alves on his thigh and firing home low left-footed.Such was PSG’s ease they could even afford to replace captain Thiago Silva, who had a muscular problem, with Presnel Kimpembe at half-time.Still they carved Amiens open at will, with Di Maria, whose place in the team could come under threat from Neymar, having a lob caught by goalkeeper Regis Gurtner before another chip hit the side-netting.Cavani should have doubled his and PSG’s tally on 75 minutes from Pastore’s sumptuous pass but shot straight at Gurtner.PSG may have been toiling at times, but when the second came 10 minutes from time it was clinical, Marco Verratti releasing Cavani to tee up Pastore for a simple tap-in.Later on Saturday, Lyon thrashed newly-promoted Strasbourg 4-0, with Nabil Fekir and debutant Mariano Diaz both scoring twice in OL’s first game since the departure of Alexandre Lacazette to Arsenal.Nice, who edged out Ajax on away goals in midweek to set up a Champions League play-off tie against Napoli, were beaten 1-0 at Saint-Etienne.Champions Monaco had got the Ligue 1 season underway on Friday night, coming back from behind twice to beat Toulouse 3-2 at home.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Paris Saint-Germain’s forward Neymar poses during his presentation to the fans at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris, on August 5, 2017 © AFP / ALAIN JOCARDParis, France, Aug 5 – Paris Saint-Germain celebrated the arrival of Brazilian superstar Neymar in festive style with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Amiens in their Ligue 1 opener on Saturday.The Parc des Princes in Paris reverberated to the sound of Neymar’s name chanted over and again before kick off as the world’s most expensive player was presented to fans.last_img read more

first_img‘Build a better future’ was the recurring theme as Letterkenny Educate Together National School’s impressive new school was officially opened this afternoon.The Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton TD, performed the official opening of the new 24-classroom school on a joyous occasion for pupils, staff and committee members.As special guests made their way into the hall, pupils sang one of the school’s songs, titled ‘Build A Better Future’. It was a line that was central to the day.“This was the vision that led a determined group of people to campaign for an Educate Together school in Letterkenny back in 2005,” LETNS Principal, Aine Fabisiak, said.Members of the initial steering group were present today.LETNS first opened its doors in 2006 and has grown in the years since from 36 to 230 pupils. Previously based in prefabricated buildings at Ballyraine, teachers and students made the move to their new state-of-the-art 24-classroom development near the former Unifi site in Kiltoy at the end of October 2017.Ms Fabisiak said: “There have been many changes over the years, but our child-centred approach to education has not changed. We are delighted to be in a position to open our doors to more members of the community.“We are so, so pleased to finally have the building. We have built strong partnerships and we work for our pupils.”She thanked the staff for their ‘endless energy, enthusiasm and unwavering commitment to the school community’.Minister Bruton unveiled a special plaque to commemorate the opening. “It’s a great day…If we can see far, it is because we stood on the shoulders of giants,” Minister Bruton said.“There is so much variety here. Everyone has a different story. Every one of those stories are equally important and we show respect for everyone around us. That is embedded in the model around us and that is something to really value.“There is so much talent around us. We need to tap into that talent.”Leas-Cheann Comhairle Pat the Cope Gallagher, TDs Pearse Doherty and Charlie McConalogue, Minister of State Joe McHugh, Senator Padraig MacLochlainn and local representatives including the Mayor of Donegal Councillor Gerry McMonagle, the Mayor of Letterkenny Councillor Jimmy Kavanagh and Councillor Ciaran Brogan were all in attendance. Paul Rowe, the CEO of Educate Together, said it was a ‘fantastic and wonderful day’.Mr Rowe said: “This is a true celebration of community spirit and of the true quality of people who have come together for something special. This is something really worth celebrating.“Providing this type of education in important regional towns is vital for the future of the country; a future in which we can have a vibrant, rural economy.”Gallery: Letterkenny Educate Together NS ‘Build a better future’ as new school officially opened was last modified: February 23rd, 2018 by Chris McNultyShare 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:Aine FabisiakJoe McHughLETNSletterkennyLetterkenny Educate Together National SchoolRichard Brutonlast_img read more
