Mercury pollution in Bartica

first_imgDear Editor,I note with considerable interest that a PAHO team is in Guyana to address the mercury clean-up at the GGMC Complex.Could Minister Raphael Trotman be persuaded to have the team address the mercury content in the Cuyuni and Mazaruni rivers, at the point at which these rivers flow into the Essequibo River at Bartica?There is not much point in the President’s determination to “Green” Bartica if the rivers surrounding the town are mercury polluted from gold mining operations upriver from the town.The colour change of the rivers from the turbidity from the mining is very, very visible.I have complained to the EPA about this on numerous occasions; and, indeed, I have complained to the Minister, but it simply gets worse.Four of Guyana’s top tourism destinations surrounding Bartica — including the beaches surrounding Bartica — are threatened by this rising pollution.We have worked very hard over the last decade and more to establish Bartica and its surrounding resorts as a yachting destination, and with some success. This, too, is now threatened.Yours sincerely,Kit Nascimentolast_img read more

IAA MD, DMA Charged with Criminal Coercion

first_img-Appear in court todayThe Monrovia City Court at the Temple of Justice has charged the Managing Director (MD) and deputy managing (DMD) for administration of the Internal Audit Agency (IAA) with criminal coercion over the alleged disappearance of a vehicle believed to have been purchased by the agency’s former managing director Paul Collins of Efficient Logistics.Both defendants, Emmanuel Nyesuah, and Clarence Williams, are expected to appear before Magistrate Kennedy Peabody today, August 29, 2918, to exonerate themselves from the charge levied against them by authorities of the Ministry of Justice.The charge against Nyesuah and Williams, court documents claimed, related to August 15 this year when the  defendants, allegedly with malice, intentionally authorized the publication of a fabricated story in both the New Democrat and the Heritage newspapers, accusing Paul Collins of reportedly stealing the vehicle that he brought from Efficient Logistics.“Those publications tarnished the reputation of Defendant Collins, and with the intent to subject him to public ridicule and hatred,” the court document alleged.These are some of the allegations that the defendants are expected to answer today, if they appear before Magistrate Peabody.According to the document, Collins had claimed that while serving as managing director, at no time did the entity purchase a vehicle from Efficient Logistics.The court record further alleged that Collins, during his tenure at the IAA, did not purchase a vehicle. Instead, the entity rented vehicles from both Efficient Logistics and Beam Transport to conduct audit field work in the counties.Interestingly, in the fiscal year of 2015/2016, it was when the IAA purchased three vehicles from Toyota Garage – two 2015 Toyota Land cruiser Prados worth US$40,000 apiece and one Toyota Rav worth US$27,000, the court alleged.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Huskies win epic game 7

first_imgFor more on the Fort St. John vs WCT finals, click here:http://www.energeticcity.ca/news/03/14/09/fsj-vs-wct-nwjhl-finals-starts-saturday The eighth goal for the Huskies seemed to take the wind out of the Peace River sails. It was Dylan Apsassin’s fourth of the game, as he charged down the left wing, and fired another shot through Bretton Stewart, to make it 8-5 Fort St. John. After the game, Apsassin said he and the team were nervous, particularly in front of the big crowd, but he said the fans were huge. “The crowd was loud – wow. It was really nice” he said. Apsassin had a huge night, posting four goals and an assist, as well as getting into it with Kyle Richardson. “Dylan Apsassin makes such a difference to our hockey club, and such a difference to his line,” said Coach Kalb. [asset|aid=1110|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=d52bf5d4e635453d0a8a780ac5696a9b-bob-dylan_1_Pub.mp3] Dylan Apsassin’s fourth of the night would finally seal the win for the Huskies, who emerged with an 8-5 win. Zack Blain posted the win in goal, stopping 30 of the 35 shots he faced. He was well-focused all game. “They played pretty hard – they wanted it,” said Blain afterwards. “But they’ve got a few clowns out there that got some stupid penalties, and that killed them.” Despite having played 5 games in six nights (with two more to follow) Blain said, while his legs were tired, it’s more important to simply have a good routine. [asset|aid=1111|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=d52bf5d4e635453d0a8a780ac5696a9b-zack-legs_1_Pub.mp3] Though it had been a long and at-times bitter series, there would be only one fight in the late stages of the game. With Cam MacKinnon being hooked by Joel Balfour, and a delayed penalty coming, MacKinnon turned around and engaged with Balfour. The two both landed a couple of punches, but tied each other up well, earning a split decision. The rest of the game was played peacefully, with another respectful handshake at centre ice to conclude the night’s entertainment. And so, the season comes to an end for the defending champion North Peace Navigators. For the Huskies, there is no time to celebrate the win. The team boards the bus early Saturday morning, for game One of the finals vs. the Whitecourt Wolverines. Advertisement It was only fitting that Friday night’s game seven between the Fort St. John Huskies and the North Peace Navigators was a wild affair.  With both teams showing nerves and excitement before the game, the opening minute saw both goaltenders forced to make solid pad saves – and it was a sign of things to come. 5:49 into the game, the Huskies drew first blood, when Steven Fast just missed Kole Norris on a two-on-one pass. The Puck went into the corner, and was centred to Cam MacKinnon, who wrapped it around Bretton Stewart, giving a big lift to the Huskies bench, and an unneeded wake up call to the 700 fans on hand for the game. MacKinnon’s goal was the only one of the first period, which was a fairly evenly matched frame. With just a minute left, Tyson Pederson was flattened by Jay Gaydosh just over the Navs blue line. Pederson was slow to get up, and then noticeably woozy when he tried to skate back to the bench. He would head straight down the tunnel, but did return later on in the game. The Huskies were upset with the hit, just one of several times the referee would come under scrutiny in a highly emotional game. – Advertisement -Just 16 seconds into the second, Gerry Young stole a puck, and headed all-alone towards the Huskies net. But somehow, Linden Apsassin reached Young and knocked the puck of his stick. Moments later, Payden Wongstedt found Kole Norris on a long stretch pass. Norris had his breakaway attempt saved, with some confusion afterwards when it seemed like the linesman had called a goal, but the referee overruled that, and the game remained 1-0 FSJ. 2 minutes into the second, Norris would find the back of the net, after a drop pass from Fast, to MacKinnon, whose shot was saved, with the rebound converted by Norris. 4 minutes later, the drama really began. Gerry Young got Peace River on the board, when he scored a powerplay goal, corralling a bouncing puck and slipping it past Zack Blain. Just 6 seconds later, Dylan Apsassin found his name on the scoresheet, taking the puck off Cody Kalb’s face-off win, busting down the right, and beating Bretton Stewart. It was the beginning of a big night, for Dylan. Less than three minutes later, after two huge saves from Bretton Stewart, Apsassin scored his second, with the pups on a two-man advantage (Balfour tripping, Young roughing) when Jesse Disher’s point shot missed the net, and bounced off the end boards right to Dylan. Soon after, Navigators coach Darcy Haugan provided some theatrics, when he complained to the ref about a hit on Adam Boytinck by Payden Wongstedt. Haugan was served a two minute penalty, at which point he lost his cool, yelling at the ref, and getting ejected from the game. But he wouldn’t go quietly. As he reached the end of the bench, he went bananas, throwing sticks, towels, water bottles, and anything else he could find onto the ice. Haugan, typically a very calm and reserved character had either lost his composure, or was making a calculated scene to spark his team. His counterpart, coach Bob Kalb felt it was the former. [asset|aid=1108|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=d52bf5d4e635453d0a8a780ac5696a9b-bob-haugan_1_Pub.mp3] Advertisementcenter_img While coach Kalb was sympathetic to Haugan’s plight, he didn’t feel the Navigators were short-changed in the game. [asset|aid=1109|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=d52bf5d4e635453d0a8a780ac5696a9b-bob-reffing_1_Pub.mp3] Coach Haugan’s explosion seemed, at least at first, to work like a charm. Just 9 seconds after the restart, and with the Navigators killing a 4-on-3 powerplay, Mitch Kohut fought his way into the Huskies zone, beating two defenceman and Blain, to score an outstanding solo effort. Kohut was simply excellent all night long, keeping in pucks at the blue line, making hits, creating traffic in front, and chipping in on the score sheet. The third period began with the Huskies leading 4-2. It would seem like two early goals would seal the deal for FSJ, with Cody Kalb creating a 3-on-1 with a nice move in the neutral zone, and then converting a give-and-go with Dylan Apsassin. Just 9 seconds later, Dylan Apsassin earned a bucketful of hats, when he streaked down the right hand side, and beat a stunned Bretton Stewart. Within 2 minutes, both teams had struck again. Peace River scored when a Tyler Lemire shot his the post, and settled in the mid-section of Kyle Richardson, who pretty much skated it into the net. Cody Hildebrand then potted his seventh of the playoffs, to make it 7-3 Huskies. But again, the Navs would refuse to quit. With 11 minutes remaining, Lemire scored a powerplay marker, blasting a point shot through everything. 30 seconds later, Gerry Young stepped around Tyson Pederson, and beat Blain, to get the Navs back within two.

Arsenal chief executive Gazidis to join AC Milan

first_imgNow the move has been confirmed, with Raul Sanllehi, currently head of football relations at the Emirates Stadium, to become head of football when Gazidis heads to Milan.Arsenal’s chief commercial officer Vinai Venkatesham will take over the role of managing director at the same point.Gazidis, 54, has reportedly been offered £3.6 million ($4.7 million) a year — a £1 million increase in his present salary — and an equity stake in the AC Milan by the American owners Elliott Management, who took over in July.Gazidis, who will leave Arsenal by the end of October, has worked for the Gunners since 2009 and has been behind a radical change in management structure at the Emirates.He played a major part in introducing roles such as Sanllehi’s, as well as that of head of recruitment — a post held by Sven Mislintat.Those appointments wrestled some power away from Wenger, whose 22-year tenure came to a close at the end of last season.Gazidis wrote a lengthy message to Arsenal supporters, in which he described his impending move as the “hardest decision of my life”.There have been significant changes behind the scenes at Arsenal in recent months, with majority shareholder Stan Kroenke last month launching a bid to take overall control of the club through his company Kroenke Sports and Entertainment (KSE).His son, Josh Kroenke, is deputy chairman of KSE and praised the work of Gazidis during his tenure at Arsenal.“It has been a pleasure working with Ivan. We will miss the wisdom, insight and energy he brought to our club on a daily basis over the past decade,” he said in a statement announcing Gazidis’ departure.Milan confirmed that Gazidis will begin working with the club from December 1, describing him as a “world-class football executive”.Arsenal, who have not won the Premier League title since 2004, are currently in seventh place, six points behind leaders Chelsea.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Long-serving Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis is set to move to AC Milan to fulfil a similar role, according to reports © AFP/File / GLYN KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 18 – Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis is to leave the club to take up a similar post at Italian giants AC Milan, the Premier League club announced on Tuesday.Speculation that Gazidis — who oversaw Unai Emery’s appointment to replace Arsene Wenger in May — will depart for Italy has been rife for some time.last_img read more

Stoke should say ‘good riddance’ to Steven N’Zonzi, says club legend

first_imgStoke City legend Mike Pejic has urged Mark Hughes to say ‘good riddance’ to Steven N’Zonzi.The highly-rated midfielder, the Potters’ Player of the Year last season, has turned down the club’s offer of a new contract and has been flirting with a move away from the Britannia Stadium, with Leicester among a clutch of clubs linked to his signature.Hughes is refusing to give up hope of keeping the 26-year-old, who has a year left to run on his current deal, but Pejic believes the Frenchman should be sold this summer if he is not committed to the cause.“He has been wanting to go for two years and I would say ‘good riddance’,” the former left-back, who won four caps for England, told Signal Radio’s Jonty Sargeant.“If a player is not happy or he constantly wants to move or he thinks things are bigger [elsewhere], then let him go.“You don’t want players who are not 100 per cent with you, no matter what their name is. If he is not happy and he wants to move, then let him move.”last_img read more

2 jailed in sniper attack

first_img Smith let deputies into his apartment, where he was with his girlfriend’s 5-year-old daughter while the girlfriend was at work, Deeley said. Deputies had earlier indications that Smith and Martinez were involved in the shootings, got more information Friday, did more detective work over the weekend and obtained search and arrest warrants Monday, Deeley said. “They’re friends, though there is a considerable age difference,” Deeley said of the suspects. The men’s apartments are not the ones searched by deputies the day after the sniper attack, though they are in the same complex, across a field and dry Amargosa Creek from the car dealership. Deputies were led to the other apartments by bloodhounds set to track the scent from where rifle shell casings were found at a low block wall that borders the apartment complex. Marijuana was found at one of those apartments, where special-weapons deputies fired tear gas after hearing noise from a television set, although no one was home. Someone from the suspects’ apartments apparently visited that apartment, probably in connection with marijuana sales, Deeley said. “There was traffic back and forth between the two locations,” Deeley said. Deeley said deputies received a number of calls from people offering information and that someone may be eligible for $22,500 in rewards. Most callers said they had read or seen news accounts about the sniper attack or had heard about the rewards, he said. The reward grew Tuesday night to $22,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the sniper or snipers. Los Angeles County supervisors offered $10,000, the Lancaster City Council authorized a $5,000 reward Tuesday night, state parole agent Larry Dorsey offered $5,000 from his own pocket at the City Council meeting, and the Association of Los Angeles Deputies, a deputies’ union, put up $2,500. “Because of all the information in the media and news about the reward, we have gotten calls from individuals with information,” Deeley said. Smith was released from state prison in 1998. He had accepted a 15-years-to-life prison term in 1994 for second-degree murder, but an appellate court later reversed the murder conviction and he was convicted of manslaughter, Deeley said. Prosecutors said Smith and two companions, also deaf, lived in South Los Angeles but went to a Van Nuys apartment in 1992 to visit deaf friends. When they went to the apartment of a deaf woman they knew, they found Edward James Powell Jr., 27, with her. An argument broke out, possibly over Powell wearing the rival gang color red, and there was a fight that ended with Smith shooting Powell, prosecutors said. Smith’s attorney contended that police got faulty information from interviews with deaf people without interpreters. Charles F.

LANCASTER – A deaf convicted killer and a reputed teenage gang member were arrested Wednesday as suspects in a sniper attack three weeks ago on sheriff’s deputies. Val Smith, 35, who served six years behind bars for a 1992 Van Nuys killing, and 19-year-old Samuel Martinez, who deputies identified as a gang member, live in neighboring apartments within sight of the car sales lot where deputies were shot at Jan. 6 by someone with a semiautomatic rifle. “We’ve been watching both of them to determine if they both stay here on a regular basis,” said Capt. Carl Deeley, commander of the Lancaster sheriff’s station, after the pre-dawn arrests by a special-weapons team. Smith and Martinez were booked on suspicion of attempted murder and Martinez on a narcotics offense. Deputies said they found marijuana they believe was being sold from Martinez’s apartment. They didn’t find the .22-caliber rifle used to shoot at the deputies.

None of the deputies was hit. “We believe both were involved in the sniper attack on the deputies and employees at the Mazda dealership,” Deeley said. Deputies will not say what may have been the snipers’ motive. Smith and Martinez were arrested in simultaneous raids at 5 a.m. at the apartments, which are across a small courtyard from each other. Deputies broke open Martinez’s door when no one answered, but he was arrested without resistance. last_img read more

BUNDORAN COUNCILLOR DEMANDS ANSWERS ON FUTURE OF BANK

first_imgSinn Féin Cllr Diarmaid Doherty has expressed his disappointment at the way that the AIB bank closure in Bundoran is being handled.Councillor Doherty, who is a customer of the bank, said it was disappointing that there has been no official notice from AIB as to when the Bundoran branch will close.“This is despite that fact that it has been common knowledge for nearly two weeks that it is due to close on the 1st of March. “There has been no confirmation regarding the position of the ATM which is of great concern to locals and visitor alike.“In my opinion the staff seem to be as much in the dark about the closure and many seem to be unsure about their future,” he said.The Sinn Fein councillor said it is not acceptable that branch staff have not been given any indications as to their future.“There are currently a number of fulltime jobs in this branch and staff are very concerned that they may lose their jobs. “I am calling on the management of the Bank to make a public statement clarifying the arrangements that are in place to ensure the closure of the bank will take place with as little disruption to customers, local businesses and staff alike.“I would also ask that the future plans for the ATM of the branch are made public as soon as possible. This is one of two ATMs in the town and is very busy with regular queues forming. I fear that the removal of this ATM would have a detrimental impact on local businesses.”BUNDORAN COUNCILLOR DEMANDS ANSWERS ON FUTURE OF BANK was last modified: January 22nd, 2013 by StephenShare 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:AIBbundoranCllr Diarmaid Dohertylast_img read more
