first_imgA Success, East Coast Demerara (ECD) resident was on Wednesday released on bail after he denied attempting to jump into the yard of a policeman.Seventeen-year-old Mark Hermanstyne, of Lot 280 Success, initially pleaded guilty with an explanation when the charge was read to him.The charge states that on May 14, 2018, he attempted to commit a felony, that is simple larceny, on Harold Deonarine.However, the teen explained to the court that he was catching birds on the day in question when he saw birdseed plants at the fence of the Virtual Complainant’s yard.He claimed that he hopped off his bicycle and attempted to pick the bird seed, but Deonarine rode up on a motorcycle and accused him of attempting to enter his property.Hermanstyne claimed that he was beaten before being handed over to the Police.As such, Magistrate Fabayo Azore entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf and granted him bail in the sum of $25,000.The teen is expected to return to court on June 6.last_img read more

Guyana will be no way better off with oil and gas

No Comments

first_img…if culture of mistrust, indecency is not changed – former advisorOil may increase Guyana’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) which will result in economic growth and the potential for improved services and infrastructure, but it will not change the culture of mistrust and ethnic tension that plagues our politics and our people.Former Social Policy Advisor, Dr Kwame GilbertThis is according to former Social Policy Advisor to the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Administration, Dr Kwame Gilbert. He said, “We are thankful to God for the oil and the possible blessings it brings. But there are some things oil will not fix.”Dr Gilbert, who is also a faith-based leader, said there was an urgent need for this state of affairs to be corrected. Nevertheless, he said in spite of the protracted political tension and socio-economic challenges facing Guyana, there is an undeniable aura of anticipation regarding the promised oil wealth.“As a people, Guyanese have endured much domestically and regionally, and it is truly high time that there is a reversal of the national fortune. As a son of Guyana, I too am excited and optimistic about the future of our country, but cautiously so,” he added.The former advisor told Guyana Times of a personal experience he had which led to that conclusion. On returning to Guyana from Canada after three years, Dr Gilbert said this dawned upon him on his arrival at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).“At the Immigration Department, we (my son and I) queued up along with the other passengers and shortly thereafter were joined by passengers from another flight that had just arrived.”After being in the queue for about 10 minutes with very little movement, Dr Gilbert said his attention was drawn to the source of the delay.“There were 10 or 12 available windows, but upon examination, I realised that there were only four immigration officers working. With four officers serving in excess of 300 passengers, frustration was inevitable,” he recalled.He said the situation worsened when the line stopped moving altogether and he realised that immigration officers were congregating in a small huddle. “It seemed that a senior officer found that time most appropriate to conduct a departmental meeting. Later, I realised that what really was transpiring was a changing of the shift. Yes!!”Dr Gilbert said in the middle of serving two flights, the shift changed, which unavoidably involved all of the necessary handing=over protocols, while the passengers waited.“I could not help but consider in that moment that with a spanking new airport terminal, some things must change with respect to how service is rendered to those visiting our lovely country.”The former Government Social Policy Advisor told this publication that the prediction and expectation is that over the next few years, Guyana will certainly see an influx of visitors, thanks to oil and gas. “While oil and gas may change our economic fortunes, if our attitude to service remains the same, then we are no better off really,” he asserted.He said too that the reckless manner in which drivers use the roadways continued to contribute to the many accidents. “The level of lawlessness, inconsideration and selfishness has never been this high. Avoiding a collision takes every bit of skill, dexterity and constant prayer.”Further, Dr Gilbert observed that the absence of concern for other road users was unbelievable and appalling and in some cases, constituted reckless endangerment.“I came to the sad conclusion that this is one other thing that oil will not fix. Oil may improve our economic standard of living, but it lacks the ability to restore the common human decency of respect, care and concern for each other,” he added.Oil, he noted too, may make life a bit easier for many Guyanese struggling to make ends meet, but it will not remove the dog-eat-dog mentality that has emerged in a people caught in survival mode.

Guyana lacks capacity to treat cancer – CMO

No Comments

first_imgBy Davina RamdassThe Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Dr Shamdeo Persaud on Friday said that Guyana has been facing challenges in the health sector when it comes to meeting the needs of the population, especially those who require treatment for cancer.“Health care is a very dynamic process and I think that from the diversity of the different conditions for example and the demand for additional services is really growing rapidly,” Dr Persaud said in an interview with Guyana Times.The CMO explained that Guyana has been trying to keep up with the global health trends but has been failing to gain the requisite capacity in a few areas, with cancer being a major aspect.Chief Medical Officer, Dr Shamdeo PersaudHe noted that what the country has been trying to do is partner with the private health facilities and even overseas medical institutions to address those gaps.Dr Persaud explained that in Guyana, the demand for a specific service may not be great in number, however it still remains crucial. He made specific reference to the three little leukemia patients who died at the Georgetown Public Hospital.“Many times the demand might not be great in terms of numbers but it’s essential, like the instance of children with leukemia for example so there might be a small number but they’re also very precious Guyanese who really require this service so we try to partner with various institutions to get that going,” he posited.According to him, Guyana has been partnering with various organisations from North America to fill existing gaps. In addition he pointed out partnerships with Trinidad, Cuba and China which aid in identifying weak points while securing the relevant health professionals needed.So far, the CMO said Guyana has had help to develop special services for neonates, as the health sector continues to grapple with a high rate of neonatal deaths.“We also have some collaboration in cardiac care, well of course you know there is the existence of the Caribbean Heart Institute here at Georgetown Hospital but we have also been working with other partners to try to develop more timely diagnostic procedures like the echocardiograms and so on,” he added.The echocardiogram is a type of test that uses high frequency sound waves or ultrasound to make pictures of a patient’s heart.The CMO added that “the cancers are the ones that we still are in the stage of development so we are looking for persons who can contribute to helping us build those services.”He said he believes if Guyana is to up its game in this area, the country may very well require more specialised medication, better techniques and procedures and even additional equipment, among others.“Hopefully our health service will develop as we go along,” the CMO added.The CMO’s statements come at a time when even Head of State David Granger has been flying out of the country to be treated for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which is a type of cancer that develops in the lymphatic system.Just recently also, the country’s premiere health institution, the Georgetown Public Hospital, was placed in the spotlight after three children lost their lives as a result of negligence on the part of the doctors who were treating the children for various types of cancers.An investigation found that the doctors at GPHC who administered the pre-chemotherapy drug did so without following protocol, which eventually led to the deaths of seven-year-old Curwayne Edwards on January 14; three-year-old Roshini Seegobin on January 18, followed by six-year-old Sharezer Mendonca who died on January 24.last_img read more

Ronaldo joins Juve, ends nine-year Real reign

first_imgThe 33-year-old is expected to have a medical in Turin next week before being unveiled by his new side.“Today Real Madrid want to give thanks to a player who has demonstrated he is the best in the world and who marked one of the most brilliant periods in the history of our club and world football,” Real Madrid said in a statement.In a letter posted on the Real website, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner said his time in the Spanish capital, during which he became their record goalscorer, had been one of the happiest in his life.“I only have feelings of huge thanks for this club, for the fans and for this city,” he said.“But I think the time has come to open a new stage in my life and that’s why I asked the club to accept to transfer me.“I ask everyone, and especially our supporters, to please understand me.”Juventus begin their pre-season schedule with a friendly against Bayern Munich on July 25 in Philadelphia, while Ronaldo could make his competitive debut for the club the following month, with Serie A to announce its fixtures for the upcoming season on July 20.Ronaldo, whose World Cup campaign with Portugal was ended in the last 16 by Uruguay just under two weeks ago, hinted after May’s Champions League final victory over Liverpool that he was considering leaving the Santiago Bernabeu.“It was very nice to be in Madrid,” he said at the time, using the past tense. He later played down the comment, but doubts over his future at Madrid lingered, especially after he had also threatened to leave the previous year.Despite failing to score in the 3-1 win in Kiev which sealed Real’s third successive European Cup, Ronaldo finished as the Champions League leading scorer for the sixth consecutive time with 15 goals.– Juve focused on European glory –Cristiano Ronaldo has won the Ballon d’Or five times, with four coming while playing for Real Madrid© AFP/File FRANCK FIFE, FABRICE COFFRINI, FRANCK SEGUIN, Franck FAUGERENow Juventus will be hoping that he can maintain his ruthlessness in front of goal for a few more years and finally help them end an agonising wait to become European champions for the first time since 1996, despite a prolonged period of domestic success.Massimiliano Allegri’s side claimed a seventh straight Serie A title last season by holding off an inspired Napoli, but fell to Real in Europe after a dramatic quarter-final, when Ronaldo ended a thrilling fightback by the Old Lady with a controversial last-gasp penalty.Ronaldo also scored twice in the 2016 final as Real downed Juve 4-1 in Cardiff.It will be the biggest fee ever paid for a player aged over 30, but the Italians are gambling on the hope that Ronaldo can produce similar longevity to their former goalkeeper Gianliugi Buffon, 40, who left for Paris Saint-Germain last week.But they are not the only ones with faith in one of the best players of all time, with Juventus’ shares on the stock exchange spiking by almost 40 percent since rumours of Ronaldo’s arrival first surfaced on June 28, and by 5.7 percent on Tuesday alone.Ronaldo won two La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns with Real after joining from Manchester United in 2009 for a then world-record fee of £80 million ($94 million).The winger was converted into an out-and-out striker, scoring an incredible 451 goals for Los Blancos in just 438 matches, smashing the club’s previous scoring record of 323 held by Raul.“They have been nine unique years,” added Ronaldo.“It has been an exciting time for me, full of respect but also hard because Real Madrid have high expectations, but I know very well that I will never forget that I have enjoyed football here in a unique way.”Serie A will be the third of Europe’s four biggest leagues that Ronaldo has graced, and his move shows that none of his drive and ambition have decreased in the latter stages of his career.He will also be hoping to take the lead later this year in his personal race with Barcelona forward Lionel Messi for most Ballon d’Or awards, although fans will now have fewer on-field battles between the two to enjoy.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Ronaldo ends nine-year Madrid reign, joins JuventusMADRID, Spain, July 10 – Real Madrid on Tuesday announced the transfer of modern great Cristiano Ronaldo to Italian champions Juventus, with the Portuguese superstar saying the time had come “for a new stage” in his life.Spanish media reports said the move could cost Juventus 105 million euros ($120 million), with Ronaldo signing a four-year contract worth 30 million euros per season.last_img read more

One in-tune family

No Comments

first_imgWHITTIER – It’s a little difficult to follow in the footsteps of an older brother who composed an entire piece for an orchestra at age 12. But Elizabeth Sywulka of Whittier has done just that. At the same age, Elizabeth recently won first prize in the Music Teachers National Association Composition Competition, Southwest Region, for a composition “Gary, the Hunting Tiger,” written for clarinet and cello. “I wanted to be a singer since I was a little girl, but seeing him do so well in composing made me want to sit down at the piano as well,” she said. Elizabeth, a student at East Whittier Middle School, also did not expect to win, after changing her composition from a long and ambitious piece to a more comic composition inspired by her cat Gary Indiana Jones, she said. In the Sywulka family, oldest brother Edward, 21, started composing and winning competitions at age 9 and recently graduated with honors from the music composition department at Biola University. Sister Karissa, 19, a piano and clarinet player, also started winning competitions at age 9 and is now studying music at Biola. And another brother Jonathan, 15, won in the same competition as Elizabeth last year and is now in the honors jazz band and band at California High School. All four children have honed their skills over the years with the help of Sierra Madre-based music teacher Ron Anderson. The young clarinet player and singer has worked hard to be as successful as her three talented siblings, he said. “I’m sure it has been frustrating coming after three who are so exceptional,” he said of Elizabeth. “But it’s obvious she also has a melodic gift. When she sings, she sings her heart out.” Elizabeth plans to compose another piece about her cat Benjamina, to sing in a choir when she gets to high school. Eventually, she wants to be an opera singer. Reyna Sywulka, the children’s mother, sees her children’s success as composers and musicians as a blessing. “It must be a gift from God because neither myself or my husband are that musical,” she said. debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
