I’m looking forward to the whole experience.”THE NEXT STEPThe White Sox finished 67-95 in their first year under manager Rick Renteria. It was their worst record since 2013, but featured the development of SS Tim Anderson, 2B Yoan Moncada, 3B Yolmer Sanchez, DH Matt Davidson, RHP Carson Fulmer and RHP Juan Minaya, among others.“All in all, I think we showed improvement and we showed some fight,” Renteria said. “People should be optimistic about the coming years.”TRAINER’S ROOMIndians: OF Michael Brantley (sprained right ankle) went 0 for 2, but said he felt “great, ready to go” following the game.

Police issues wanted bulletin for mastermind

first_imgKN grenade attackThe Police on Friday issued a wanted bulletin for Shemar Wilson also known as “Abdue” for questioning inWanted: Shemar Wilson, also known as “Abdue”relation to the recent grenade attack on Kaieteur News on June 6 at Saffon Streets, Charlestown, Georgetown.Wilson, 20, whose last known addresses were given as Lot 43 North Sophia, Georgetown and Lot 51 West La Penitence, Georgetown, is believed to be the mastermind of the attack.However, Guyana Times understands that 13 persons are now in Police custody being interrogated in connection with the incident. This was confirmed by Police sources that revealed two others were on Thursday evening arrested.One of the two arrested on Thursday is said to have paid over money to the contracted persons threw the grenade at Lall’s luxury vehicle, while it was parked in front of the building on Saturday last.With the recent arrests, the source told Guyana Times that a total of 13 people, mostly teenagers, are now being questioned. The Police however, have secured an extension to detain those who were arrested since Tuesday.This include the 19-year-old driver of a Toyota Spacio similar to the one allegedly used by the perpetrators who hurled the grenade. He is said to be giving conflicting statements. He initially claimed that his car was hijacked on Saturday at about 22:30h by two men on a CG motorcycle, while driving along Albert Street, Alberttown.The car was subsequently found abandoned on Norton Street and Mandela Avenue.The grenade was hurled at the luxury vehicle belonging to Kaieteur News publisher Glenn Lall last Saturday night during the first night of wake for Assistant Editor Dale Andrews.Persons who were at the wake recalled hearing a strange sound but assumed it was a shattering glass. However, when a thorough check was made, the grenade was found lying next to the right tyre of Lall’s black Lexus vehicle.The Police were summoned and the area was immediately cordoned off while bomb experts deactivated the device. They noted it was a miracle the grenade did not explode.It was after the review of the surveillance cameras that the grey car was identified. Prompt investigations lead to discovery of the car and the arrest of six persons who were later joined by seven others as investigations continued.Meanwhile, the police are encouraging anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of the wanted man to contact the police on phone numbers 225-6411, 225-227, 225-8196, 227-1149, 226-7065, 911 or the nearest police station.

50 benefit from radiation safety regulation training

first_imgA total of 50 people benefited from a five-day workshop on Basic Radiation Safety and the Regulation of Radiation Sources which was hosted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in collaboration with the Public Health Ministry.The training was conducted by consultants from International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Tasos Zodiates of United Kingdom and Bob Irwin of Canada and saw professionals from both the Public and Private Sectors being educated in the use of radiation, radioactive sources and its management in attendance.Those who benefited were drawn from the medical, industrial and agricultural sectors as well as regulatory bodies in the fields of environment, customs and mining.Participants were also drawn from nine of the 10 administrative regions and were trained in radiation sources and protection, legal framework and legislation, medical uses, public exposure, transport, industrial uses and consumer products as it relates to radiation safety and regulation.In his opening remarks, Chairman of the EPA, Patrick Williams, encouraged the participants to grasp as much as they can to guard against the dangers of radiation and to have the requisite systems in place to protect human health, biodiversity and the environment.An overview of the national context was provided by Senior Environmental Officer of the EPA, Tashana Redmond and medical physicist attached to the Ministry, Petal Surujpaul.Redmond indicated that the EPA currently regulates the industrial sources of radiation while the Health Ministry has responsibility for the medical sources.Currently, Guyana is implementing Project RLA 9082 on the ‘Establishing and Strengthening Sustainable National Regulatory Infrastructures for the Control of Radioactive Sources’ under the IAEA.The goal of this project is to build the competence and expertise needed by national regulatory bodies to establish and operate an adequate regulatory programme for the safety and security of radiation sources.Upon completion of the workshop, the participants received certificates but further recommendations were made for additional training of regulatory staff in radiation protection and authorisation.The need for a radiation protection act and associated regulations was also among some of the issued discussed at the workshop.last_img read more

New Baramita Toshao determined to improve lives of Carib people

first_imgBaramita Village’s first female Toshao, Sharmain Rambajue, intends, over the next three years, to work assiduously to improve the livelihood of the Carib people of Region One (Barima/Waini).Toshao of Baramita, Sharmain RambajueBaramita is the largest Amerindian settlement in Guyana, and the biggest Carib Village in the Caribbean. It comprises 22 satellite villages and has a population of about 3,500 residents.According to Toshao Rambajue, she contested the Village Council elections because it was her wish to “really help the Indigenous peoples in Baramita”.“For so long, the ex-councils didn’t really pay attention to the Indigenous peoples here…I’ve seen their needs, and so that is why I came forward and got on board and campaigned,” she explained.“Throughout my tenure as Toshao, I will work really hard for the Indigenous peoples, and develop my community to build a better Baramita,” she said in an interview with the Department of Public Information.In the area of youth development, the Toshao plans to establish a skills training centre. This has been deemed necessary, she added, since it will provide many Baramita youths with an opportunity to develop a trade skill. This venture will also meet the need for skilled personnel in the community.“So, instead of bringing mechanics from Georgetown, we will have them right here,” Rambajue explained.The main economic activity of Baramita is mining and traditional ground provision farming. Toshao Rambajue aims to encourage more subsistence farming, and will be partnering with agencies, including the Guyana Livestock Development Authority (GLDA) and the National Agricultural Research and Extension Institute (NAREI), to provide technical and other support.She said, “We have the miners in the area and also the school kitchen. However, we have to send for greens (vegetables) and meat all the way from Georgetown. Therefore, if we have persons within the community supplying the miners and the school, again, the monies will be circulated right here, and it will also provide employment.”Baramita, the Toshao said, is challenged by many social ills, including alcohol consumption, suicide, sexual and domestic violence, therefore she will also partner with other agencies and NGOs to tackle these issues. Rambajue explained that her ultimate goal is to eradicate the stigma associated with Baramita. She is in the process of crafting a three-year plan.She also plans to reintroduce the toll gate system to monitor the amount of alcohol entering the community. This will also be a source of income for the village.Members of the new council are currently acquainting themselves with the assets of the village and meeting with business persons in the area.  Meetings will also be held with the miners, after which a general village engagement will be held.Sharmain Rambajue was elected village captain from a field of four candidates, comprising another woman and two men. Fourteen councillors have also been elected to support Rambajue and to serve the 22 satellite communities.Rambajue campaigned under the theme, ‘A Fresh Face, A Fresh Start – Development for all of Baramita.’last_img read more

Lawyer cites discrimination against Ashni Singh, Winston Brassington

first_img…as DPP discontinues criminal charges against Lawrence, Norton…DPP office compromised of independence, autonomy – PPPFollowing a decision by Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Shalimar Ali-Hack to drop private criminal charges filed against two Government ministers, former Attorney General Anil Nandall has said it points to discrimination against two former PPP Government functionaries who are facing similar charges.Hours after private criminal charges were filed against three more Government ministers on Monday by Nandlall, as the attorney representing Opposition Member of Parliament (MP) Juan Edghill, the DPP announced discontinuance of the case filed on April 19, 2018 against Ministers Volda Lawrence and Dr George Norton.The DPP said in a statement that these charges concern a grave issue under the criminal law in relation to two serving ministers. “In the interest of good governance in the State of Guyana, such allegations ought first to have been reported to the Guyana Police Force for an investigation to be launched and the advice of the DPP sought,” a statement from her office explained.But Nandlall has said that, as far as he is aware, no one wrote requesting a review of the charges against Ministers Lawrence and Norton. “I am aware that at a press conference held on Saturday, the 21st day of April, 2018, Attorney General Basil Williams stated that ‘the Government expects’ the DPP to review the private criminal charges filed against the ministers. It is now apparent that, even without a request, the Government’s expectations were met,” he observed.Nandall also recalled writing the DPP inviting a review of the charges filed against former Finance Minister Dr Ashni Singh and former head of the National Industrial & Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL), Winston Brassington, and to date he has not received any response.While the DPP has noted that the charges with reference to the former and current health ministers were discontinued in the interest of good governance, Nandlall, the attorney representing Dr Singh, said there is nothing that confers a power on the DPP to be responsible for “good governance in the State of Guyana, especially in Article 187 of the Constitution, which sets out the functions of the DPP.“You will note that the term ‘good governance’ appears nowhere in these functional responsibilities. This must be the first and only DPP office in the English-speaking Commonwealth that views itself as being responsible for ‘good governance’ within a State. In this regard, the DPP has clearly been influenced by extraneous and irrelevant considerations, (and) has acted ultra-vires and unconstitutionally by ascribing to her office functional responsibility with which it is not endowed,” he added.The former minister also pointed out that the institution of private criminal charges has been part of the local criminal jurisprudence for over a century. He reminded that it was always initiated by a private individual without the involvement of the Police and the DPP, and that there is absolutely no known legal requirement that the allegation must first be reported to the Police and the advice of the DPP sought.In fact, Nandlall argued that in many instances, it is the failure of the Guyana Police Force to act, or to act professionally, that led to the evolution and practice of private criminal charges.“The position adopted by the DPP on this occasion will retard the advancement of our criminal jurisprudence, and stultify the right and freedom of the citizen to institute and prosecute a private criminal charge without the involvement of the State,” he opined.The Opposition MP also reminded that when Christopher Ram had instituted private criminal charges against former President Bharat Jagdeo, the matter was neither reported nor investigated by the Police. Yet the DPP did not consider it a part of ‘good governance’ to discontinue those charges.“I feel the DPP’s discontinuance of the charges against the two ministers, but apparent refusal to do likewise in relation to Singh and Brassington’s charges, smacks of discrimination and inequality before the law,” he stated.Nandall also feels the DPP’s latest action has strengthened Singh and Brassington’s intended challenge of their charges in the High Court; and he can only conclude that both Singh and Brassington have been discriminated against by the DPP.Independence, autonomyThe Opposition Peoples Progressive Party (PPP) also added its take on the discontinuance by the DPP of the private criminal charges filed against ministers. The party also acknowledged the DPP’s reluctance to do likewise, in relations to similar charges instituted against Dr Singh and Brassington.The party believes this move “is a clear demonstration that the DPP has buckled under pressure exerted by a Government that has caused criminal investigations to commence against her in relation to a plot of land allocated to her under the People’s Progressive Party Civic Administration.”The PPP has described the DPP’s action as “comical”, given her explanation to drop the charges against the ministers on the basis of good governance. The party has said it questions whether the DPP is now saying that ordinary Guyanese cannot exercise their right to file private criminal charges against an official of the state.The party is also alleging that the DPP office has willingly compromised its independence and autonomy. “There is no doubt that we are rapidly descending into an authoritarian Police state, where independent constitutional bodies are being contaminated and pressured by this Government to relinquish their independence and constitutional responsibilities,” the party said.last_img read more

Mourinho hits out at Jones treatment in national team

first_img0Shares0000England defender Chris Smalling (L) and teammate Phil Jones take part in a training session at St George’s Park in Burton-on-Trent, central England on March 21, 2017LONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 16 – Jose Mourinho has slammed the England management for playing an injured Phil Jones in their goalless friendly draw with Germany last Friday.Jones had been struggling with a thigh injury for a number of weeks, but honoured his call-up to the national side. He was named in the starting line-up to face the World champions, but lasted just 25 minutes before breaking down and being replaced by Joe Gomez.Mourinho says he was naive to expect the England medical staff to take better care of the Manchester United defender.He said: “Of course, Phil Jones had a problem. He was having a problem for three weeks, he’s having problems that are stopping him playing for his club and then he plays for his club in extreme conditions [against Chelsea] because it’s a big match.“And then he goes to the national team and he comes home with an ongoing injury that everyone knows is an ongoing injury.”Mourinho added that while Jones suffered by being with England, a number of players, including Danny Drinkwater and Fabian Delph, who pulled out of the squad with injury, won’t have any issues as a result of their absence.He explained: “You have always some clubs where their players, they always have something.“It could be a fingernail, he has a little flu, he has a problem with the little toe, and they withdraw, and they stay with their clubs and they have their holidays and they have their rest.“Then, there are always the clubs where the mangers are naive, too pure and they say you have to go and they go and sometimes they pay the price.“I want to see this next weekend if the players that were not going to the national team, I want to see if they are going to play. Drinkwater? Delph? The only one that is not playing is Phil Jones.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Pogba tight-lipped over United situation for fear of being fined

first_imgHowever, Pogba — who cost United a then-world record £89 million (105 million euros, $116 million) in 2016 to prise him away from Juventus — is known to be upset by Mourinho’s remarks about his performances at the World Cup compared to those for his club last season.Mourinho had implied Pogba — whose agent Mini Raiola has reportedly been talking with Barcelona — had flourished under Didier Deschamps at the World Cup because he could not be distracted by his entourage or by his commercial obligations.“There are things and there are things that I cannot say otherwise I will get fined,” Pogba told the British press after the Leicester match in a rare occasion he has stopped to speak with them.Paul Pogba says he cannot say more about his situation at Manchester United for fear of being fined © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFPogba, who was given the captaincy by Mourinho on Friday, summed up what it meant for him to be happy and comfortable.“If you’re not happy, you cannot give your best,” said Pogba.“You have to know one thing: a player that gets chosen and is happy, you always feel more comfortable than when he’s not happy. That’s all I say.”Pogba, who was dropped by Mourinho for both legs of the Champions League last-16 loss to Sevilla last term, said there were differences between playing for France and United.“I am the same, but it’s a different team, obviously,” said Pogba.“I still enjoying playing football but like I said, when you are comfortable or confident and are good in the head, it’s going to be easier.”Pogba said “everybody was on the same page” in the France dressing room, from Deschamps to the staff and players — that has not necessarily been the case at United with several players at different times singled out for public criticism by Mourinho.“When you have everybody with you, everybody next to you, you know they want to fight for you, obviously it’s going to be easier,” he said.However, Pogba — who could still leave despite last Thursday’s English transfer deadline day as most European leagues keep their transfer windows open until the end of August — professed his deep love for the club.“I always love the club (United). I came from the academy, I played for the first team. For me, it was a dream come true.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba shows his frustration during the opening English Premier League match of the 2018/19 season against Leicester City at Old Trafford in Manchester, north-west England, on August 10, 2018 © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 12 – Paul Pogba added fuel to rumours of his deteriorating relationship with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, saying he could not express himself for fear of being fined.The 25-year-old — who scored a superb goal in France’s 4-2 victory over Croatia in the World Cup final — was credited with a ‘monster performance’ by Mourinho in United’s opening 2-1 Premier League win over Leicester City on Friday.last_img read more

WOW! RARE CLOUD FORMATION DAZZLES IN DONEGAL SKY

first_imgTHIS is something you won’t see too often – rare Mother of Pearl clouds in the skies above Co Donegal today.The amazing clouds, technically called polar stratospheric clouds or nacreous clouds usually occur at high latitudes, in places like Scandinavia, Iceland, Alaska and Northern Canada.The clouds, displaying the pastel colors of the rainbow, are formed high in the atmosphere, at heights of up 9 to 15 miles. The colors are created as ice crystals are formed at temperatures of around -121F. The clouds are normally associated with high winds.

first_imgCeballos scored the winner against Betis (Photos by Agencies)Barcelona maintained their 5 point caution atop the La Liga standings this past weekend thanks to a 3-0 victory over Eibar at the Camp Nou.Two goals by Luis Suarez either side of Messi’s 400th League strike were enough to take care of Jose Mendilibar’s side who never troubled the hosts much.The victory is Barca’s 13th for the season and elevates them onto 43 points on the log, 5 clear of second placed Atletico Madrid.For Atletico, they scrapped to a 1-0 victory over Levante at the Stadio Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday afternoon.Diego Simone’s side had star-player Antoine Griezmann to thank as he converted from the spot in the 57th minute to hand his side the three points.

Marseille saw a controversial Florian Thuvine winner ruled out with a few minutes to the end after Lucas Ocampos was judged to have fouled Monaco goalkeeper, Deigo Benaglio in the buildup.The draw leaves Marseille sitting 9th on the log with 28 points, 22 behind leader PSG.
