first_imgDear Editor,I read with alarm the report published by the Guyana Chronicle on June 13, 2018, headlined ‘PPP frets after candidate loses out on GECOM post’.The report says: “Back in 2016, Persaud was accused of being corrupt. It was alleged that despite having a Public Relations Officer (PRO) at the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) at the time, Persaud carried out some of that officer’s duties during the last elections. Sources within the Commission had told the Guyana Chronicle that Persaud took charge of all civic and voter education responsibilities despite their falling within the ambit of the PRO… in 2014, Persaud while appointed as DCEO, wrote and signed documents as the entity’s Public Relations Officer. In documents seen by this publication, Persaud had signed as PRO and DCEO.”Editor, the fact is Persaud was GECOM’s Public Relations Officer. He was appointed the Deputy Chief Elections Officer (DCEO) on August 12, 2014. A report in the very Guyana Chronicle, dated August 13, 2014, headlined ‘Vishnu Persaud GECOM’s new DCEO/ DCNR’, makes this fact clear.At the time of his appointment, the vacancy of Public Relations Officer had not been filled. He acted in the post until someone was appointed.So obviously, in 2014, there would have been documents released by Persaud where he either signed as PRO (ag) and DCEO.Is the Guyana Chronicle so desperate to defend the unilaterally appointed GECOM Chairman, Justice (retired) James Patterson, that it tells blatant lies?Lies will not distort the facts.The fact is Persaud was the number-one ranked candidate for the post of DCEO, after an evaluation by a four-person panel (two PNCR and two PPP/C nominated Commissioners). The fact is that the unilaterally appointed GECOM Chairman in using his casting vote to reject the number-one ranked candidate also rejected the principles of meritocracy and fairness, which should guide the hiring process of any institution, more so GECOM.Regards,Attiya Bakshlast_img read more

RESH Finds New Approach to Remain Viable

first_imgRenewed Energy Serving Humanity (RESH) has found a more suitable and innovative way to sustain itself for the foreseeable future as donor support in the country diminishes due to a huge demand for continuous assistance, especially for women, children and drug addicts.As an organization known for working with these vulnerable groups, RESH knows pretty well that depending on donor funding for the future would never be the best option for the enormous tasks that it has at hand and the level of impacts the organization wants to have in the country.Donors have done a lot for Liberia in the past few decades, but it is also no secret that the country is gradually seeing donor funding slowing down, and all NGOs know fully well that as donor funds dry up the organizations become dead or their operations come to a halt—RESH can’t afford to reach this point.And this is just why the organization, that prides itself as an NGO focused on psychosocial support for community members facing trauma, including the Ebola epidemic, has decided to indulge in an innovative initiative called agriculture for sustainability. “We do envisage RESH as a self-sustainable NGO,” RESH’s founder and Executive Director, Earnest Garnark Smith, said.He knows that a sustainable NGO is an organization that plans ahead; and an NGO like his highly depends on its capacity to address real problems as well as to collaborate with other actors and agencies working in the area, which may strengthen RESH’s impacts in the medium and long terms.The RESH founder disclosed that all technical works or feasibility studies have been done for the acquisition of the farmland, but there are some issues with funding. “This is a great vision, but funding is trying to tie us down,” he said. But in spite of this, Smith is very optimistic that RESH’s vision will come to fruition.Accordingly, he said, the first rule for sustainability is to have a clear vision, which is consistent with existing needs. As such, it is important to complete background research and to develop a long-term plan capable of tackling problems and offering concrete solutions. “This is why we are heading in this direction,” he noted.“We’re into buying 50 acres of farmland in Nimba County for this purpose. We are already raising US$5,500 for the venture. We’re graciously raising that money by His grace. I will be posting the updates to friends of trust and allies directly inbox, because I don’t want it public as this is a project.“It’s our fervent prayer that the Lord bountifully flood your financial storehouse to joyously enable you be an integral part of this venture as usual,” he told would be contributors, adding, “Please do also share our vision with your trusted and proactive friends, family members, and even organizations you’re a part of and those who could be of immense help.”RESH is expected to highlight its Agriculture Sustainability project with a fundraiser during its 2nd Anniversary on November 22, 2016. “Please share with us your thoughts and progressive strategies as we are open to adopting results-oriented tips,” Smith said.It is no secret that donor support to the country has reduced drastically, evidence by the halting of financial assistance provided to government by international partners to complement where the national budget fell short. This reduction in donor funding is affecting every facet of the Liberian society, especially INGOs and NGOs that are fully dependent upon donor support to implement projects.External funding, it appears, can no longer guarantee an NGO’s future. It is therefore crucial to develop a strong financial plan; knowing fully well that without resources no project can be developed. This is why RESH has done extensive research to define the ways in which the organization could finance its activities in the long term—and this solution has been found in the agriculture sector, which has immense potentials, especially for its many female champions and volunteers. Smith also noted that it is important to develop a long-term plan that is able to manage the NGO staff in a way that maximizes each individual’s potential and meets their own expectations by supporting their professional development.”Additionally, an NGO should develop strategies that are able to gather new staff members on occasional and voluntary bases. This will enable RESH to count on the workforce of additional staff members when required.In closing, Smith noted, “With all said, sustainability plans must be realistic. It is good to cultivate ambitious plans, as we are doing, but it is essential to establish a realistic agenda when it comes to proposing a project, and we feel this is the most realistic for us.”RESH recently graduated over 200 volunteers, known as psychosocial counselors, to enhance its psychosocial programs in Liberia. These graduates have been deployed in various communities across the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Good ol’ bore of NASCAR

first_imgOooh, be still my beating heart. You see almost no real racing, unless you’re watching the monster video screen. Might as well stay home and save the ears. Listen, it is not a sport. Got that? Not a sport. A sporting event doesn’t rely on something mechanical. It is not about who has the best engineers. Not about who has the best tires or spark plugs or cleanest motor oil. That’s not to say the drivers aren’t highly skilled, aren’t courageous and don’t sweat alot. But they’re not athletes. Kobe Bryant flies past opponents who are all wearing the same clothes, playing on the same court and using the same ball. Dan Gable wrestled his way through an entire Olympics without allowing a single point because of will and ability and training, not because he had a better carburetor. If a driver doesn’t finish a race because his engine blows, that’s about a machine, not athleticism. I used to watch my dad make some pretty nasty moves on Foothill Boulevard, but no one ever confused him with an athlete. This was all much easier to take when NASCAR was mostly this Southern abnormality that you could just sort of write off as a bunch of frustrated ex-moonshiners who still thought it was really cool to fly the Confederate flag and drive around in circles. NASCAR is big-time now, however, and this week it comes to Fontana for the AutoClub500. Now this is a city that deserves something nice to happen to it, with its steel mill long closed and the once powerful Fontana High football team reduced to prep afterthought. No doubt it does wonders for the local economy, although NASCAR remains a tougher sell in Southern California and the speedway can’t fill its 90,000 seats. Maybe we’re just too sophisticated, or at least, rational. Still, Fontana bellies up a week after “The Great American Race,” the Daytona500. That’s supposed to be like the Super Bowl of auto racing – only you don’t play another regular-season game in the NFL the week after the Super Bowl. And wasn’t Daytona an interesting race last weekend, in a soap opera kind of way? Before the week began, Dale Earnhardt Jr. announced he wanted out of his racing contract, which only belonged to Dale Earnhardt Inc. Something about him and his step-mommy not getting along. Then five different drivers had to go without their crew chiefs, all suspended for cheating. They mostly did small things to give their cars slight advantages, because the cars are all so similar that any small advantage is seen as huge. Then they ran the race, which offered 400 miles as NASCAR’s answer to insomnia, 100 miles of destruction derby and twoultimately silly bonus miles that included yet another multi-car crash. Yet curiously not a yellow flag, as the rules state, allowing Kevin Harvick to sneak ahead of Mark Martin – leading at the time of the crash – by the width of a Ricky Bobby whisker. All that NASCAR high ground during the week as it suspended crews, and then it couldn’t find its little yellow flag? And apparently people just ate it up. It killed in the ratings, an estimated 17.5million tuned in to watch this snoozefest on wheels. P.T. Barnum laughs somewhere. The unspoken attraction to watching NASCAR, and all auto racing, is the thrill so many receive in viewing the crashes. There’s nothing like the sound of metal scraping metal and cars going airborne. These are the same people who jam freeways, slowing to a crawl to get a good view of the accident on the other side of the interstate. If they actually ran these things for 500 miles without a crash, ratings would plummet. NASCAR would turn into lawnmower racing, though at least the grass would get trimmed. Crashes, of course, can lead to injuries, and in extreme cases, death. Three drivers have died at Daytona in the past 14 years, most notably, Dale Earnhardt Sr. There’s something macabre about watching an event, and in the back of your mind, wondering if today someone will eat it for the final time. I get none of it. Truth be told, my mind isn’t even open to it. I’d call it a sport for the easily entertained, but that would require that it was a sport. And entertaining. I would continue, but by now I’d be going in circles, and we all know how mind-numbing that can be. nationwide Steve Dilbeck’s column appears in the Daily News four times a week. stephen.dilbeck@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The cheaters are coming, and aren’t you just so excited? Those rule-bendin’, death-defyin’, rebel-yellin’ conglomerates masquerading as simple good ol’ boys. It is Southern California’s turn to host the strangest, would-be athletic event in the country. It’s NASCAR, which is so huge it defies mortal logic. NASCAR, which has easily become America’s most popular form of autoracing. NASCAR, which is so marketable its sponsors have sponsors. center_img It’s a phenomenon and I do not get it. I am absolutely amazed. Guys drive around a narrow oval in supposed stock cars at ridiculous speeds, trying to squeeze into miniscule openings for hours at a time, and people are stunned when they go bouncing like pinballs? Where is the great attraction? If you like breathtaking turns and high-speed shenanigans, drive the 405 some evening. NASCAR is the dullest major spectator activity in America. Ever actually gone to one of these goofy things? You sit crammed in the bleachers watching cars go flying by for mere seconds. They drive 500 miles and you see maybe 4 miles of the actual action. last_img read more

Pulis exit is ‘bad news’ for Crystal Palace’s Premier League future, says former boss

first_imgTony Pulis’ shock exit as Crystal Palace manager is “bad news” for the club’s future in the Premier League, former Eagles manager Iain Dowie has told talkSPORT.The former Stoke coach’s relationship with co-chairman Steve Paris reportedly deteriorated over the summer, having missed out on a number of top transfer targets.And, after the odds were dramatically slashed for Pulis to be named the top flight’s first managerial casualty, the club announced his departure on Thursday evening just days before their opening game of the season at Arsenal.Pulis arrived at Selhurst Park in November with the Eagles sitting at the bottom of the table, but miraculously helped the club avoid the drop and secure an 11th-place finish.It was the first time in the club’s history they had managed to survive relegation from the top tier, but Dowie believes Pulis’ exit could mean Palace may struggle to stay up for a second successive season.“It’s bad news for Palace,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast. “The club has lost a very good manager, he makes all the players buy into his team ethic and that will be the biggest loss.“Tony did an absolutely sensational job with the team, he’s always been a very underrated coach and he did next to nothing wrong.“The side were creative and really promising forward, they were a very entertaining team to watch – they battered Everton at Goodison Park and the 3-3 comeback against Liverpool was just incredible.“I’ve had brief dealings with Steve Parish in the past and his relationship with Tony seemed very harmonious, but this is obviously something that’s been brewing for a little while.“The timing is very unfortunate, I had thought the opening game of the season at the Emirates would have been a tough game for Arsenal to win, but with Tony leaving you just don’t know.“Nobody was even talking about Palace being around the relegation places this season, but you do feel now that they might be mentioned.”last_img read more

Tottenham’s lethal Kane kills off Arsenal again

first_imgIt was the Tottenham striker’s seventh goal in seven league games against the club who rejected him as a youngster.Kane’s latest heroics also made it sweet revenge for Tottenham after they were beaten at Arsenal earlier this season.Harry Kane celebrates scoring the only goal of the north London derby alongside Spurs’ Dele Alli at Wembley on Saturday. Photo/DAILY MAILIn the first north London derby at Wembley for 25 years, Tottenham extended their recent mastery over Arsenal, who have won only once in the last eight league meetings with their hated neighbours.Tottenham are unbeaten in their last nine league matches and remain in a good position to qualify for the Champions League via a top four finish.In stark contrast, this was another dispiriting day for Arsenal in a season already marred by too many painful moments.Arsenal’s first defeat in 10 visits to Wembley is a huge blow to their hopes of returning to the Champions League.Jack Wilshere evades the challenge of Dembele and drives forward with the ball but neither side found the net in the first half. Photo/DAILY MAILThe Gunners, winless in 16 Premier away league games against the top five, fell seven points behind Tottenham and are six adrift of the top four.From the start, it was clear Tottenham would be the aggressors in the latest meeting between these eternal rivals in front of a Premier League record crowd of 83,222.Kane’s clever flick sent Dele Alli racing clear and  when he whipped over a low cross, Shkodran Mustafi poked an attempted clearance towards his own goal, forcing Petr Cech to plunge to his right to spare his team-mate’s blushes.That incisive raid was part of a sustained spell of early pressure from Tottenham.Adopting an unusually cautious approach, Arsenal were rendered impotent for long periods, leaving club record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang chasing lost causes.– Potent Tottenham –Eriksen makes his way down the touchline with the ball at his feet while Monreal tries to battle him for possession at Wembley. Photo/DAILY MAILKane wasted a golden opportunity to open the scoring midway through the first half when he headed over from Christian Eriksen’s pin-point cross.Hector Bellerin made a well-timed burst onto Mesut Ozil’s pass, but despite being in acres of spaces, the Arsenal defender couldn’t keep his long-range effort on target.It was a miscue in keeping with Arsenal’s failure to find their rhythm as new signings Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan struggled to replicate last weekend’s dazzling displays against Everton.Pochettino’s team were doing all the pressing and were finally rewarded in the 49th minute.Alexandre Lacazette had the chance to make Tottenham pay for missing chances but wasted Arsenal’s best opportunity in the dying seconds of the North London derby© IKIMAGES/AFP Ian KINGTONWhen Ben Davies swung over a dangerous cross, Kane who reacted quickest, showing more desire than Laurent Koscielny as he towered above the Arsenal defender to guide a fine header past Cech.Kane’s 32nd club goal of the season — his eighth in his last seven games — shifted the momentum even further toward Tottenham and the England striker should have doubled his team’s lead when he stooped to head wide from Kieran Trippier’s cross.Arsenal had no answer to Kane’s muscular presence and clever movement and he forced a good save from Cech with a stinging drive from the edge of the area.Cech had to be at his best again moments later to tip over an Eriksen free-kick curling towards the top corner.Alexandre Lacazette almost levelled the scores at the death when he raced in on goal and fired a shot past Lloris. Photo/DAILY MAILThe anonymous Mkhitaryan was hauled off after 65 minutes before Arsenal at last had a shot on target when Jack Wilshere’s long range effort tested Hugo Lloris.However, it was Tottenham who remained the more potent force and Alli clipped a good chance wide before Cech saved well from Erik Lamela and Trippier.Cech had kept Arsenal in the game and in the final seconds they could have snatched an undeserved point.But, extending his current miserable form, France striker Alexandre Lacazette scuffed wide with just Lloris to beat.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tottenham were waseful, but Harry Kane headed the only goal they needed to beat Arsenal© IKIMAGES/AFP Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 10 – Harry Kane tormented Arsenal again as the Tottenham striker’s clinical finish sealed a 1-0 win in the north London derby at Wembley on Saturday.Kane’s header early in the second half gave Tottenham the victory their enterprising display deserved as Mauricio Pochettino’s side climbed to third in the Premier League.last_img read more

450 JOBS PROMISED BY 2020 AS GOVT ANNOUNCES €5M GRANT FOR RANDOX, DUNGLOE

first_imgThe Government has approved an investment by Údarás na Gaeltachta of €5m in R&D grant assistance to be paid over a period of 5 years to Randox Teo in Dungloe.The investment will enable Randox Teo to develop its facility as a world class R&D centre of excellence and will lead to 450 jobs at the plant by 2020.The investment will forward the company’s strategy for biochip technology and diagnostic equipment as envisaged under the company’s plan entitled Dungloe 2020.The investment will lead to the creation of 450 jobs by the end of 2020 with 125 people being employed at the plant by the end of this year.The move has been welcomed by Junior Minister Joe McHugh.“This decision shows the Government’s commitment to consolidating employment in areas such as An Clochán Liath in order to sustain viable, rural communities and, in particular, to support the Irish language as the community language in a strong Gaeltacht area. Having regard to the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs 2015, which has a particular focus on regional development, I am particularly pleased to note that Randox Teo plans to have 125 employees in An Clochán Liath by the end of 2015 and that an employment target of 450 jobs will be reached by the end of 2020.“I would like to acknowledge and commend Randox and their management team on the company’s commitment to Dungloe and the surrounding area, as well as to the Irish language. Randox is a strong successful Ulster company, based in Antrim, and the work they are doing in Donegal is a great example of positive cross border work.“Last December, I was very pleased to announce that following discussions I had with the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Brendan Howlin TD, Údarás na Gaeltachta received an additional €1 million in their capital budget for 2015.
