Callous policies implemented by the forestry sector

No Comments

first_imgDear Editor,The People’s Progressive Party/Civic has been relentless in its condemnation of the ill-advised, improperly conceived and callously implemented policies in the forestry sector which have practically destroyed the once vibrant communities of Region 10. In the lead up to 2015, these communities were visited by the likes of Trotman et al with big promises of how they would do better and how they would create more jobs and ensure that residents make more money. The promise of the good life. There were also talks of investors who were lined up specifically for Region 10 and then by extension, the entire country.However, reality has stepped in. The Leader of the Opposition on numerous occasions at his weekly press conferences has highlighted the plight of the hapless and helpless citizens.While steam was escaping from the pressure pot, on October 21, 2019, the pot boiled over and the loggers in Ituni had no choice but to take the posture of a protest and practically beg for an opportunity to be able to work. This appeal went to the tone-deaf and unconstitutional President. A notable fact that was disclosed during that protestation was that 35 tags for 2019 were given to the community of Ituni, a community of more than 800 residents (for the layman a tag is the permission to cut a single tree). In essence, the community of 800 is expected to live on the proceeds of cutting 35 trees for the entire year.During various visits to communities in Region 10, namely, Hururu, Kwakwani, Ituni, Muratario, Malali, 47 Miles, 58 Miles, and Great Falls, I have realised that the cry is exactly the same: hardships, imposition of regulations, forcing community logging associations to be morphed into co-operative societies, withholding of tags to ensure political compliance, and a host of other discriminatory practices . The people are fed-up, disgusted and impoverished. A case in point of betrayal was the constant attacks on the Chinese investors in this sector by the APNU/AFC while in Opposition and the promises of how better will come and that the good life would be enjoyed by all. This sordid episode of people begging lays squarely at the feet of Mr David Granger. So we can expect Mr Trotman or a full convoy of Ministers rushing in to these areas with a new set of promises while the people are disillusioned and the suffering continues.We in the PPP/C empathise with the hardships being experienced by the residents and pledge to ensure a professionally managed Guyana Forestry Commission guided by sound economic policies. This Commission under the PPP/C will serve to alleviate the woes of residents as a matter of great urgency. As is publicly known, we will reverse the VAT on heavy-duty equipment used in the forestry, mining and agricultural sectors. We will initiate policies to ensure all those who depend on the forest for a living can benefit while fulfilling our commitments of sustainable development.We remind that our flagship Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS) which earned Guyana US$250 million in the first instance did not deprive our loggers, miners nor our Amerindian brothers and sisters from making a living.A visionary and efficiently run PPP/C Administration in 2020 will revive traditional sectors and stimulate growth in new and emerging sectors. We need all of our people back to work!The horse cannot be left to starve while the grass grows in abundance. “Long time done short time leff”.Yours sincerely,Bishop Juan A EdghillPPP/C Member ofParliamentlast_img read more

Has O.J. intentionally sought spotlight with heist?

No Comments
first_imgThe KSPN-AM (710) hosts suggested that University of Southern California fans petition the school to take down Simpson’s retired No. 32 jersey from its place of honor alongside other former Trojan greats at Heritage Hall. Two noted mental health experts, meanwhile, said Simpson’s arrest could be an unconscious attempt to pay a price for his past guilt. They also noted that Simpson’s actions could be a way to snag attention away from the release of his apparent tell-all book, “If I Did It,” by the Goldman family. Simpson was arrested the day the family released the book, hoping to use the proceeds to pay off a $33.5 million damage judgment awarded by a civil court jury that found Simpson responsible for the deaths. “O.J.’s motive in doing this was an unconscious feeling of guilt, not remorse, for the murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman,” said Dr. Carole Lieberman, a Beverly Hills psychiatrist who has studied the former football star since his trial in the killings of his ex-wife and Goldman. “He feels that he should be arrested and in custody for his previous crime. So he unconsciously got himself arrested and in custody for this crime.” Lieberman and Tarzana-based psychologist Nancy Irwin said they believe Simpson’s actions in Vegas were an unconscious need to be in the limelight, which they said he might feel was taken from him by the Goldmans on the book. “It’s no coincidence he got into trouble with the law and made headlines the same day `If I Did It’ was released,” Lieberman says. “They were getting news for the book. He resented that and wanted to be in control of news himself.” Irwin said Simpson’s Las Vegas troubles were in keeping with him being what she called a “narcissistic sociopath.” “O.J. can’t help it. He’s a sociopath. He’s a narcissist,” Irwin says. “Did you see when he was smiling on camera when he was arrested? He’s proud. He’s in control.” Fred Goldman, Ron’s father, said he had a similar reaction. “I guess the first reaction I had to seeing him in handcuffs and walking was he still had that arrogant swagger about him, `I’m still in charge of the world,”‘ Goldman told CBS’s “The Early Show” on Monday. “Which is what I think this whole thing is all about. He thinks he can do whatever he wants, whenever he wants. The world is his stage and he’s the master puppeteer.” Simpson argues that the Vegas incident was merely a confrontation with no guns and that autographed collectibles – including his Hall of Fame certificate, a photograph with former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and video from his first wedding – were all his. He counters that they were stolen from him and were about to be fenced by unethical collectors. Simpson attorney Yale Galanter told reporters in Las Vegas that he would fight the charges vigorously. “We believe it is an extremely defensible case based on conflicting witness statements, flip-flopping by witnesses and witnesses making deals with the government to flip,” Galanter said. Lieberman, who followed the murder trial closely as a commentator for various news outlets, said the Heisman Trophy winner has shown a consistent history of losing rationality to his emotions. “From the time he was a football player, he was trained to win, and that’s still his mentality,” Lieberman says. “What’s amazing is if you read the book `If I Did It’ and his description of the night of murders, there is this same irrationality on the night of the crime. “He felt driven to win in his battle with Nicole. He loved her obsessively. And he realized that night that she was never coming back to him. He had to win. Winning meant destroying her. “It’s this same tremendous emotion overtaking his rationality that the (memorabilia) collector describes when he talks about O.J. and his thugs coming into his room. O.J.’s not thinking he could wind up in jail for years. Just thinking revenge or the game he needs to win.” But Hunt believes the arrest may have been inevitable in a climate in which he says Simpson had a “huge target on his back.” “Large portions of the American public feel he got away with murder, and many people would relish the opportunity to stick it to him,” Hunt says. “Clearly, my sense is that a lot of people were looking for blood and want to see the book thrown at him.” tony.castro@dailynews.com (818) 713-3761160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “Sociologically, what’s happening is that many people feel this is poetic justice,” says UCLA professor Darnell M. Hunt, who directs the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies and wrote a book on the Simpson murder trial. “If you polled the public right now, I think you’d see that there’s quite a bit of sentiment that he’s getting what he deserved for what he got away with before.” Adding fuel to the fire, an expletive-laden audiotape was released Monday in which Simpson was apparently heard issuing threats to the dealers. Clark County Judge Nancy Oesterle denied Simpson bail, saying he was considered a possible flight risk and had no ties to the local community. He is due in court Wednesday and could seek bail then. But in Los Angeles on Monday, the arrest dominated the local ESPN afternoon talk radio show with former NFL player D’Marco Farr and sidekick Kevin Kiley. Betraying the advertising slogan “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,” O.J. Simpson’s recent arrest in Sin City has thrust the former football star into the international spotlight again amid withering speculation about the psychological health of the man once accused of being a killer. Held without bail Monday, the 60-year-old Simpson is accused of armed theft after trying to wrestle away his own sports souvenirs from memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room. The incident is just the latest twist for the high-profile NFL Hall of Famer who some experts say appears to want to get caught for something. And the latest brush with the law has opened unhealed wounds over Simpson’s controversial 1995 acquittal in the murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. last_img

Social welfare investigators used Facebook to catch dole cheat

No Comments

first_imgCOURTS: A dole cheat was caught out by his Facebook profile which showed he had entered a civil partnership and was living with his partner.Cormac Doherty, of Lower Carrigans, St Johnston, appeared at Letterkenny District Court after failing to notify the Department of Social Protection of his change of circumstances. The defendant was charged with failure to notify of change in circumstances, and for making false statements to receive benefit allowance.The court heard how Mr Doherty had entered into a civil partnership in Northern Ireland, and was under the illusion that the union wasn’t recognised in the Republic of Ireland.Solicitor for the Department of Social Protection, Ciaran Liddy told the court, “The defendant thought that his civil partnership wasn’t recognised in this state.“He continued to claim his social welfare benefits without declaring to the Department of Social Protection that his circumstances had in fact changed.“The defendant also falsely claimed that he was living with his sister, but she made no reference to her brother when she declared her circumstances.“Social welfare investigators became suspicious and when they searched his Facebook page – discovered a profile picture and other images which indicated that the defendant had entered into a civil partnership.“They subsequently checked Derry City Council records and it showed that Mr Doherty had entered into a civil partnership.”Mr Doherty was in fact living with his partner at an address in Lower Carrigans, St Johnston.The court heard how the defendant has diabetes and suffered from depression as a result of this case.It was disclosed in court that Mr Doherty owed the state, €2,444.33, but the balance is now at €2,264.33 following repayments he has made since July.Solicitor for the defendant told the court his client was remorseful for what he did, and said he had already began making repayments to the state.“The defendant is paying €20 a-week, and is now in full employment on a modest wage of €300 a week.“He realises it was wrong what he did, and that he should have declared to the state he was living with his partner and his circumstances had changed.“He has suffered from depression as a result of this case, and is also a diabetic.”Judge Paul Kelly took into account his early guilty plea, and recognized that he had already made repayments – which he hopefully will increase going forward.He fined him €250 and gave him four months to pay for not notifying the department on his change of circumstances, and took the other charge into consideration.Social welfare investigators used Facebook to catch dole cheat was last modified: October 5th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:cheatCormac DohertycourtsdoleFacebooknewssocial welfarelast_img read more

Peru 0-1 Denmark: Yussuf Poulsen completes Danish smash and grab

No Comments

first_img 5 Yussuf Poulsen made Peru pay for missing a crucial VAR-awarded penalty as Denmark took the early initiative in Group C.Many expect one of these two nations to join France in the knockout stages, and Poulsen’s second-half strike has surely made Denmark favourites. 5 But it all could’ve been so different for Poulsen. On a day where VAR has been hugely influential, the Dane conceded a penalty right at the end of the first-half but Christian Cueva, the man fouled, blasted over from the spot.The Peruvians were dominant for much of the game and so nearly levelled on several occasions, but the 40,000 Red and White fans inside the Mordovia Arena were left with nothing to cheer.Their team started the game brightly, with the impressive Andre Carrillo stinging the palms of Kasper Schmeichel before providing a half-chance for Jefferson Farfan with a defence-splitting pass.But the game, and perhaps the group, saw its pivotal moment in the 46th minute. He forced a decent save from Schmeichel in the first half, cutting inside onto his left foot before firing one at the Dane’s bottom corner.Denmark left few gaps in their defence, but Carrillo found them. Farfan couldn’t make the most of his incisive through-ball in the first half and, in general, Peru couldn’t match the 27-year-old’s high standards.Moment of match 40,000 Peru fans inside the Mordovia Arena experienced a rollercoaster of emotions as Cueva blasted their VAR-awarded penalty over the bar.The denial, the restored hope, the heartbreak. Referee Bakary Gassama saw nothing wrong with Poulsen’s challenge on Cueva until he watched it back on the pitch-side screen and rightly corrected his initial decision by pointing to the spot.However, the hopes of 40 million Peruvians proved too much for Cueva to bear as he fired his penalty into the stands.Denmark made sure he lived to rue the moment as Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen found Poulsen with a perfectly-timed pass in the 59th minute. The Leipzig man looked to have over-ran the ball but managed to squeeze it underneath Pedro Gallese.Peru bombarded the Danish goal for the remaining half an hour, with Edison Flores, Paolo Guerrero and Farfan all missing glorious chances, but the Blanquirroja couldn’t find a way past Schmeichel and they now have a mountain to climb in Group C.Star manMuch of the focus was on Eriksen, and while the Spurs man did create the decisive goal, it was Benfica’s Carrillo who stole the show. The Peruvian was the only player who really expressed himself, taking risks and making things happen. They knew the result of this game could decide who qualifies from Group C, and that moment was the opportunity to take a giant step towards the knockout stages and send their magnificent support into delirium.How Group C looks Carrillo was the standout performer center_img 5 Cueva’s miss could prove decisive in Group C 5 Poulsen grabbed the winner Cueva smashes his penalty over the bar 5last_img read more

After last week’s dire performance and result against Monaghan it was more important Donegal bounced back.While they didn’t get the result the performance was excellent and Rory Gallagher can take a huge amount of positives out of it ahead of their final two games against Mayo and Tyrone.Ryan McHugh scored Donegal’s goal in the first-half, while Bryan Sheehan kicked six glorious points from Kerry to give them a one-point lead at half-time.In the second-half, Donegal got off to a rip-roaring start and pointed through Murphy, McBrearty and McFadden to lead by two. Kerry responded through Billy John Keane who fisted to the net to put The Kingdom back in the ascendancy.Kerry always kept Donegal at arms length and they never got within two points of Eamon Fitzmaurice’s side.Kerry where then awarded a penalty with five minutes to go and David Moran buried it to put them six ahead.Donegal showed spirit and character and responded with a point through McFadden and then Michael Murphy scored a penalty after McFadden was fouled.That made it a two-point game with two minutes to go but Donegal couldn’t get the goal they desperately needed. In the end it finished Kerry 2-13 Donegal 2-11.Donegal now need to dust themselves down and prepare for their next league game.They were much better than last week and played some superb football and can take many positives from today’s defeat.Tir Chonaill Abú.

(PHOTO/Tooro United)StarTimes Uganda Premier LeagueTooro United vs Busoga UnitedMuteesa II Stadium, WankulukuSaturday, 31-08-2019 @4pmWANKULUKUKU – Tooro United and Busoga United will square off at Wankulukuku in one of the three Uganda Premier League games to be played on Saturday afternoon.Tooro United will be seeking to kick-start a bid to better last season’s 5th place finish despite not playing at home in the first game.Wasswa Bbosa’s side who are expected to host their games in Fortportal could not get clearance in time and resorted to Wankulukuku for the visit of Busoga.Going into the game, they are set to miss the services of two key players as both Godfrey Lwesibawa and Ibrahim Kayiwa are unavailable. Lwesibawa has not been training consistently while Kayiwa is suspended as he carries a red card from the previous season.Despite the absentees, head coach Wasswa Bbosa is confident his side will walk away with all three points.“My boys are in good shape except that I will be without two players,” said Bbosa ahead of the game.“All in all, I am confident that we will win the game.“Busoga are a good team and their coach has been them for a while and it will not be an easy game but we will try our level best to pick maximum points.”Busoga will also be confident going into the game, having not lost to Tooro in their last three meetings.After finishing 9th last season, the Jinja-based side have added Ali Kimera, Ivan Wani, Shafick Kakeeto and Ibrahim Mugulusi to bolster their ranks and hopefully help them climb up the table.However, they have also lost Godfrey Akol (BUL), Sanon Mulabi (BUL), Faisal Muwawu (Villa), David Bagoole (URA) and Fred Amaku (Maroons), players who have in the past been integral.Match FactsThis will be the 7th top-flight meeting between the two sides since Busoga were promoted in 2016.In the past six meetings, three have ended in draws with Tooro winning twice and losing one.However, they have not defeated Busoga in any of their last three match-ups with the Jinja-based side winning one.
