Incursion has implications for oil production future – GTUC

first_imgBorder controversy– issues rallying call for citizens to be vigilant, involved Noting that Venezuela’s aggression has implications for Guyana’s future as an oil producer, the Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC) plans to carry out a countrywide sensitisation campaign on the border controversy aimed at educating workers and the general population.According to the Union on Saturday, it held the first such session last week at GTUC headquarters. That session was attended by various Union members and leaders and was addressed by current Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge; former Foreign Affairs Minister Rashleigh Jackson; and Major General (retired), Jose Singh.“The controversy has implications for Guyana being able to exploit its oil and gas resources for the benefit of Guyanese. The recent incursion by a Venezuela navy ship that caused ExxonMobil – who was carrying out exploratory activity in our EEZ – to leave, reinforces and exemplifies the threats and challenges being faced by external forces,” the Union said in a statement to the media.“At the internal level it could threaten the fabric of the nation as a single unit and people pursuing common destiny, goals. This we must be ever vigilant to and be mindful to avoid at all cost. In light of this threat, every Guyanese is a solider, a defender of truth, our borders and the resources lying within the bosom of this nation,” the GTUC stated.The GTUC noted that they will be carrying the initiative around the country as part of “preparing the nation’s consciousness” in defence of Guyana’s border. It was noted that this can be regarded sees this form of interaction as contributing to workers’ training and education, while bringing about greater participation from the citizens. Nor did the GTUC focus all its attention on Venezuela.It was observed in the GTUC statement that every citizen has a role to play and that no group or agency is insignificant when it comes to being involved and playing a role in protecting Guyana’s territorial integrity.“At the end of the day, all participants left the symposium with an understanding that this is a matter to unite us. That we can all be the beneficiaries of protecting our sovereignty and territorial integrity.”“This is no easy threat as a small state having to justifiably confront an increasingly aggressive bigger state, with military might, internal political instability, and muscles it wants to flex. Even as Guyana awaits the determination of the ICJ it behooves us as citizen/workers to continue our vigilance, to be ever watchful.”Attendees to the forum included GTUC President Coretta McDonald; General Secretary Lincoln Lewis; executive and branch members from the various unions in and out of the fold, including the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) and Guyana Public Service Union (GPSU).AwarenessFormer Education Minister and Chairman of the proceedings, Jeffrey Thomas, noted that Guyana in 1962 was able to prepare its citizens and raise awareness on the ground – from the schools to the communities – in defence of Guyana’s sovereignty and integrity.It was only a week ago that Guyana’s Government had called on Venezuela to cease its intimidation tactics and respect Guyana’s territory. This had followed complaints late last year from ExxonMobil that the Venezuelan navy had intercepted one of its vessels while doing research work.On December 22, 2018, ExxonMobil’s local subsidiary announced it was suspending the 3D seismic tests it had started a month prior in Guyana’s Stabroek Block; after the appearance and approach of the Venezuelan navy caused the company’s seismic vessel to pack up shop and vacate the area.Ramform Tethys, the vessel in question is owned by Norwegian company Petroleum and Geo Services (PGS). The company was contracted by Exxon to carry out tests and acquire seismic data.The incident came at a time when Guyana has an ongoing territorial integrity case with Venezuela. While Guyana has submitted the relevant paperwork to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) the Venezuelan Government is yet to join the proceedings.During the 2019 Budget debates, Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge had revealed that April 18, 2019 has been set for Venezuela to submit its counter memorial.last_img read more

AG to probe City Hall parking meter arrangement

first_imgThe Auditor General’s Office intends to carry out a special audit into the parking meter contractual arrangements which were made between Smart City Solutions Incorporated (SCSI) and the Georgetown Mayor and City Council (M&CC). The move is in keeping with the current audit it is carrying out at City Hall.This was revealed by Auditor General Deodat Sharma in an interview with this publication on Thursday. While he could not provide details about the scope of the audit at this point in time, he confirmed that the audit office will be looking into the matter.The controversial parking meter project will now be subject toa probe from the Auditor GeneralAn audit into City Hall was requested by M&CC executives in a letter dated February 28. The Auditor General’s Office had taken up that request, and an audit commenced in March, 2017.  However, during that exercise, City Hall officials have not been as helpful as had been hoped. Thus the final phase of the audit, which had commenced last month, has been stalled because of this lack of cooperation.According to Sharma, his office has since requested the parking meter contract in furtherance of this audit.The parking meter contract has been subjected to reviews from both the Finance Ministry and the Attorney General’s Chambers, after concerns had been raised about the project. Those reviews had not been favourable to the contract, prompting amendments to be made to the contract.Among the concerns raised about the contract were the division of profits; the exorbitant amount being charged for parking; the development, as well as the terms of the agreement and the company undertaking the project.An estimated 400 parking meters were expected to be installed along selected streets in the central business district of the capital city of Georgetown.Concerns have abounded over the criteria used for the selection of the streets with parking meters, with some seeing it as a discriminatory move, as some patrons will be mandated to pay for parking while others will not.The parliamentary Opposition People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) had strongly criticised the project, especially in light of the fact that there were no consultations on the matter beforehand.Despite a plethora of flaws highlighted in the contract, the reviews did not explicitly speak of illegality, and the green light for the commencement of the project was given once certain recommendations were implemented. This included a reduced fee for parking, which was eventually changed in the contract.Opposition positionCommenting on the matter, Opposition Member of Parliament (MP) Anil Nandlall had emphasised that the Opposition has completely rejected the instalment of parking meters around Georgetown on basis of the current state of the economy.“The PPP has spoken on this matter. We are of the view that we do not need, and do not want, parking meters in Guyana.It will impose an additional financial and economic burden on the people of this country,” he had posited.According to the parliamentary agenda, Opposition MP Irfaan Ali will be moving the motion to debate the parking meter project on the grounds that there were no public consultations, stakeholders have pleaded with the Georgetown Mayor and City Council (M&CC) to revise the initiative, and the contract may have violated tender procedures.The motion would have also addressed two additional considerations, namely that some councillors had objected to the project’s implementation, and the question of whether the legal hurdles and protocols have been addressed, such as the M&CC having authority over public roads such as Regent Street, Water Street and Avenue of the Republic.The PPP/C, in its motion, had also intended to call on the Auditor General of Guyana to conduct a forensic audit into the Georgetown Municipal Council, including the parking meter contract.The parking meter project has since been the subject of High Court cases, mass protests in front of City Hall, and the intervention of the Ministry of Public Infrastructure in declaring major public roads off-limits from parking meters.By the intervention of central government, the parking meter contract was eventually put on hold for a three-month period, which is expected to come to an end in June.last_img read more

Boost for Chelsea? Barcelona coach Enrique refuses to deny Messi rift rumours

first_img1 Barcelona boss Luis Enrique Barcelona coach Luis Enrique insists he has the backing of his club and his squad – but refused to deny reports of a rift with Lionel Messi.The Spanish media claimed on Wednesday that Enrique’s job could be at risk following reported friction in the changing room between him and some of his players, including Argentina star Messi.Spanish sports newspaper Marca claimed that many players are unhappy with the former Barca player’s tactical and coaching methods since he replaced Gerardo Martino as coach in the summer.Captains Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta had to reportedly intervene to stop Enrique from reprimanding Messi after the South American failed to report to training on Monday.Enrique reiterated that Messi’s absence was due to illness, but Catalan newspaper Sport claimed the pair’s relationship had deteriorated so much in recent weeks that Messi was considering leaving the club he joined at the age ofChelsea are believed to be monitoring developments, while Manchester City have also expressed an interested in the past.And when asked about reported friction with Messi at a press conference on Wednesday, Enrique said: “I neither confirm nor deny those reports.“The things that are part of the team always remain in the changing room.“Messi is the best player in the world and I have said this many times.“I have the same relationship with all my players that I had at the start of the season. That has not changed.“Messi did not train on Monday because he had gastroenteritis. That was the club statement and that was the reality.”Messi trained on Wednesday morning with the rest of his team-mates ahead of Thursday’s Copa del Rey match against Elche.He and Brazilian striker Neymar were on the bench in Sunday’s 1-0 La Liga defeat at Real Sociedad, which cost Barca the chance to overtake Real Madrid at the top of the Primera Division.And Enrique said: “The continuity of a coach always depends on results. That is the first lesson they teach you when you do the coaching course.“I feel I have the backing of the club as well as of the players.“I have no doubt in my mind. I have not received an ultimatum.“I am doing my job with the same professionalism as when I got here. I have nothing to regret up to now with respect to my personal treatment with my players.”Barca trail Real Madrid by a point, having played a game more, after they were unable to respond to Jordi Alba’s early own goal in San Sebastian.“To lose at Real (Sociedad) was a hammer blow that affected not only the team but the coaching staff,” Enrique said. “But I feel confident and motivated.“I’m focusing on the things that we can improve on and not on other things that are out of my control.”last_img read more

Child abuse linked to single-parent cohabitation

first_img“This is the dark underbelly of cohabitation,” said Brad Wilcox, a sociology professor at the University of Virginia. “Cohabitation has become quite common, and most people think, `What’s the harm?’ The harm is we’re increasing a pattern of relationships that’s not good for children.” The existing data on child abuse in America is patchwork, making it difficult to track national trends with precision. The most recent federal survey on child maltreatment tallies nearly 900,000 abuse incidents reported to state agencies in 2005, but it does not delve into how rates of abuse correlate with parents’ marital status or the makeup of a child’s household. Similarly, data on the roughly 1,500 child-abuse fatalities that occur annually in the United States leaves unanswered questions. Many of those deaths result from parental neglect, rather than overt physical abuse. Of the 500 or so deaths caused by physical abuse, the federal statistics do not specify how many were caused by a stepparent or unmarried partner of the parent. However, there are many other studies that, taken together, reinforce the concerns. Among the findings: Children living in households with unrelated adults are nearly 50 times as likely to die of inflicted injuries as children living with two biological parents, according to a study of Missouri abuse reports published in the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2005. Children living in stepfamilies or with single parents are at higher risk of physical or sexual assault than children living with two biological or adoptive parents, according to several studies co-authored by David Finkelhor, director of the University of New Hampshire’s Crimes Against Children Research Center. Girls whose parents divorce are at significantly higher risk of sexual assault, whether they live with their mother or their father, according to research by Robin Wilson, a family law professor at Washington and Lee University. “All the emphasis on family autonomy and privacy shields the families from investigators, so we don’t respond until it’s too late,” Wilson said. “I hate the fact that something dangerous for children doesn’t get responded to because we’re afraid of judging someone’s lifestyle.” Census data leaves no doubt that family patterns have changed dramatically in recent decades as cohabitation and single-parenthood became common. Thirty years ago, nearly 80 percent of America’s children lived with both parents. Now, only two-thirds of them do. Of all families with children, nearly 29 percent are now one-parent families, up from 17 percent in 1977. The net result is a sharp increase in households with a potential for instability, and the likelihood that adults and children will reside in them who have no biological tie to each other. “I’ve seen many cases of physical and sexual abuse that come up with boyfriends, stepparents,” said Eliana Gil, clinical director for the national abuse-prevention group Childhelp. “It comes down to the fact they don’t have a relationship established with these kids,” she said. “Their primary interest is really the adult partner, and they may find themselves more irritated when there’s a problem with the children.” That was the case with Jayden Cangro. In July 2006, his mother’s boyfriend, Phillip Guymon, hurled the 2-year-old nine feet across a room in Murray, Utah, because he balked at going to bed. The child died from his injuries. Jayden’s mother, Carly Moore, has undergone therapy since the killing. Yet she continues to second-guess herself about her two-year relationship with Guymon. “There’s so much guilt,” she said in a telephone interview. “I never saw him hit my kids, ever. But he was gruff in his manner – there were signs that he wasn’t most pleasant person for kids to be around.” Guymon has been sentenced to five years in prison for second-degree felony child abuse homicide. Moore thinks the penalty is far too light. “It’s a hard thing,” she said, recalling Jayden’s death. “You go off to work, you say, `See you later,’ and then everything’s completely shattered in a split second.” Some women can’t see the trouble even when it’s right in front of them. Jennifer Harvey of Springfield, Mo., acknowledged in court last summer that she continued to date a man for two months after becoming suspicious that he had killed her 18-month-old son, Gavin. “I was in denial,” said Harvey, who was placed on five years’ probation for not acting on her suspicions. The boyfriend, Joseph Haslett, was sentenced to life in prison for suffocating the toddler with a headlock. The slaying of toddler Devon Shackleford in 2004 was premeditated. Derek Chappell, who was sentenced to death this month, considered Devon an obstacle to an on-again, off-again relationship with the boy’s mother, and drowned him in an apartment complex’s swimming pool in Mesa, Ariz. The mother, Kristal Frank, has created a Web site in memory of her son, full of reminiscences and snapshots. Chappell is referred to only as “that inhumane thing.” Such cases trigger a visceral reaction, but there are no simple solutions. Some of the worst cases of child abuse involve biological parents, and examples abound of children thriving in nontraditional households “There’s no going back to the past,” said Washington and Lee’s Robin Wilson. “We don’t tell people who they can cohabit with. We don’t tell them they can’t have children out of wedlock.” There are, of course, some initiatives aimed at reducing the percentage of children raised by single parents. That’s one of the goals of the Bush administration’s Healthy Marriage Initiative. “The risk (of abuse) to children outside a two-parent household is greater,” said Susan Orr, one of the top child-welfare specialists in the Department of Health and Human Services. “Does that mean all single parents abuse their children? Of course not. But the risk is certainly there, and it’s useful to know that.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! NEW YORK – Six-year-old Oscar Jimenez Jr. was beaten to death in California, then buried under fertilizer and cement. Two-year-old Devon Shackleford was drowned in an Arizona swimming pool. Jayden Cangro, also 2, died after being thrown across a room in Utah. In each case, as in many others every year, the alleged or convicted perpetrator had been the boyfriend of the child’s mother – men thrust into father-like roles which they tragically failed to embrace. Every case is different, every family is different. Some single mothers bring men into their lives who lovingly help raise children when the biological father is gone for good. Nonetheless, many scholars and front-line caseworkers interviewed by The Associated Press see the abusive-boyfriend syndrome as part of a broader trend that deeply worries them. They note an ever-increasing share of America’s children grow up in homes without both biological parents, and say the risk of child abuse is markedly higher in the nontraditional family structures. last_img

Sadness as well-known butchers in Donegal Town to close tomorrow

first_imgThere is a great sense of sadness in Donegal Town as it has been announced that M McGettigan & Sons will be closing their doors for the last time tomorrow. Trading since 1952, brothers brothers Ernan and Diarmuid McGettigan took over the business from their father in 1980.The company, which employs seven local people, has cited competition with multinationals as the primary reason for their closure due to a consistent drop in turnover over the last four or five years. Speaking to Fora, Ernan McGettigan says “Small businesses are being interfered with by [multinationals] and we’re the next ones that have to go.“Our father started the business, which is the hardest part about this.“We’ve tried everything, we’ve cut costs as much as we can. We’ve tried to produce products of quality, unfortunately it’s all about the price.“There’s very little loyalty left to small businesses who employ local people. Everyone is a number now, it’s all about productivity, get in and out. McGettigans have thanked their customers, “particularly the customers who stuck with us to the end”.Ernan says that after Saturday, “we will end up with nothing” due to the lack of support mechanisms in place if things go wrong for the self-employed.Although the brothers are thinking of making a business from their sausages, Ernan says they should be thinking of retiring, however stressed that “we have mortgages to pay so I would never say never.”McGettigan fondly remembers when Prince Charles visited their premises during his visit to Ireland in 2016.“We’re the only shop premises in Donegal that he stood inside. It was a great honour.” The closure of McGettigans, who have won European-wide recognition for their excellent range of sausages when named Chevaliers of the prestigous Commanderie des Fins Goustiers du Duche d’Alencon, France, will be a huge loss to Donegal Town.Sadness as well-known butchers in Donegal Town to close tomorrow was last modified: June 16th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:butchersDonegal Townmc gettigan’slast_img read more
