BRAC-Liberia Conducts Weather Info Sharing Workshop

first_imgCBOs, leaders and some BRAC-Liberia officials BRAC-Liberia recently conducted training for 21 leaders of Community Based Organizations (CBOs) in Weather Information Sharing Operations at its Training and Resource Center in Kingsville, Careysburg.The training will help farmers improve their yields. “From our Disaster Risk Assessment Report, storms, floods, and droughts are visible factors of climate change affecting farming activities in the country, BRAC-Liberia disaster risk management specialist Decontee Saytarkon said.“BRAC-Liberia will partner with CARI to provide weather information to farmers around the country,” Saytarkon said.Leaders of CBOs who attended the training were chosen from Monterrado, Margibi, Bomi, Grand Cape Mount, Bong and Grand Bassa counties.The workshop which was part of the ongoing EU funded “Pro Act Project” was meant to educate volunteer CBO leaders on weather calculation during the rainy season, weather radiation calculation and the techniques for reducing agricultural disasters and risks.He said the initiative, which is starting on a low scale, will ease the impact of some climatic challenges like drought, floods and storms that farmers are faced with in some parts of the country.Additionally, Saytarkon said BRAC-Liberia will develop a communications channel with CARI weather stations to make available weather information to farmers through BRAC-Liberia volunteer CBOs.Freeman K. Blackie, an agro-meteorologist and ICT officer at CARI, who was a facilitator of the workshop, said that the twelve weather stations will help farmers with daily weather information that could result in new farming technologies to make farming easier.The twelve weather stations are funded by the EU and are undergoing construction by the Liberian Government through CARI in various county capitals, including Kakata, Tubmanburg, Robertsport, Voinjama, Barclayville, Harbel, Gbarnga, Tapita, Buchanan, Sanniquillie and Monrovia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Jury frees Whim murder accused duo

first_imgA mixed jury on Monday freed the two accused on trial for murdering a Whim Village, Berbice businessman during the commission of a robbery in 2012.Elton Haynes, 28, a former Policeman of Manchester Village, Corentyne and Carlton Akeem Bourne, 23, from Whim Village, ran out of the Berbice High Court after being set free on the murder charge, five years after they were arrested.The duo was on trial for the November 7, 2012 murder of Winston Ragnauth, 57, called “Tony”, of Lot 2 Whim Public Road.Haynes was represented by Attorney-at-Law Sasha Roberts of the Legal Aid Clinic while State-appointed Attorney Arud Gossai appeared for Bourne.The State’s case was presented by Attorney-at-Law Tuana Hardy. According to the State’s case, the two men, back in November 2012, met at Liverpool Village, Corentyne and planned to break into Ragnauth’s business and rob him. Haynes, being armed with a dangerous weapon, then went to the premises of Ragnauth, who operated a beer garden and grocery store.The State alleged that it was during the robbery that Ragnauth was killed. It had been alleged that although Haynes had physically killed Ragnauth by slashing his neck, Bourne was equally accountable.  The man’s body was discovered on November 7, 2012, at his home, after his grocery shop had been broken into.Haynes was subsequently arrested after the incident and gave a statement to the Police relaying the identities of the persons who were involved and the sequence of events that transpired during the robbery. Bourne was arrested one year later.The trial was presided over by Justice Sandil Kissoon.last_img read more

Govt to ban public smoking

first_img…smokers to face ,000 fine each time caughtGovernment’s Tobacco Control Bill 2017, reportedly aimed at preventing public exposure to second-hand smoking, has finally been made public after prolonged national waiting; and it has since been published in the Official Gazette.It generally provides that public smoking of cigarettes and other tobacco products, such as cigars, is prohibited by law; and a monetary deterrent is applicable in this respect.Persons caught breaking this law for the first time are liable to be fined $10,000 on summary conviction, but each subsequent conviction attracts a penalty of $20,000.Moreover, no person shall be permitted to smoke in any waiting area or queue in a public place; including, but not limited to, any public transport stop, bus stand, or bus park. Smoking will also be prohibited in any park, playground, or amusement park; any stadium, arena, or any kind of sport of performance place, or any space for commercial service of food or drinks.It shall also be illegal for persons to smoke in any area within five metres of a window, door, or ventilation inlet to any public place or indoor work place.Smoking shall also be prohibited anywhere on the premises of — or within five metres from the outside boundary of — any healthcare, educational or child care facility.Further, no person shall smoke in any part of any indoor working place; indoor public space in any public transport, whether or not it is carrying another member of the public; or in any vehicle which is carrying a minor.AdvertisingThere will also be a clampdown on advertising campaigns that have been launched by tobacco companies over the years, in that there will be prohibition on all advertising, promotion, and sponsorship of tobacco products, even by electronic delivery systems.These legislative measures had been proposed when Dr George Norton was Minister of Public Health, but they were never tabled in the National Assembly since they were engaging the attention of a cabinet sub-committee.Director of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), Carissa Ettienne, had also recently called on Government to step up efforts to introduce the long-awaited tobacco control legislation, since it could prove critical in reducing diseases that are the leading causes of death in Guyana.According to information posted on the PAHO website, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) –including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes — account for 70 percent of deaths in Guyana, and one-third of these deaths are premature (in people under 70).Etienne has said that tobacco use, excessive alcohol use, unhealthy diet, and physical inactivity are the main risk factors underlying this epidemic.The PAHO director had called for a “working together (among) different sectors of society and different government ministries to reduce the burden of these diseases and save lives.”Etienne has also said that tobacco control is a good place to start in stepping up action against NCDs; since, overall, it is the leading risk factor for these diseases.“We believe that tobacco taxes should be increased, tobacco packaging should feature strong warnings, and people should be protected from secondhand smoke,” she has expressed.According to data released in recent years, although tobacco is acknowledged as a dangerous substance, at least 11 per cent of children in Guyana are regular smokers, and at least 20 per cent of them began smoking before they were 10 years old.The International Monetary Fund had also recently revealed that, out of a total of 163 countries, 66 middle or low income countries have neither legislation nor polices that regulate the sale, marketing, or use of tobacco.last_img read more

Miners close operations, urge GGMC intervention

first_imgItaballi-Puruni Road woesThe Itaballi-Puruni Road, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) remains in a deplorable state weeks after miners and other business operators complained of not being able to reach the mining areas to work.The deteriorated state of the Itaballi-Puruni Road, which miners are forced to endure in seeking their livelihoodThis road, which is the gateway to Guyana’s mining sector, sees thousands of persons traversing on a daily basis to get into various backdams to mine.The Itaballi-Puruni Road is the main thoroughfare used by persons in accessing the gold mining districts of Puruni Number 3, Cuyuni Number 4, and the Middle Mazaruni area, Region Seven from the Papishou Landing. The Puruni Road runs from the Community of Itabali, Mazaruni River, Lower Mazaruni, to the Papishou Landing, Mazaruni River, and Middle Mazaruni, and is the only entrance and exit to various key sections of Region Seven. This newspaper was told that the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) has the sole responsibility for the maintenance of this road; however, users say they have been doing an unsatisfactory job.Gold miner Nicholas Gomes on Wednesday told Guyana Times that because of the deplorable state of the road, he was forced to close his operation and send his workers home. He said that such a tough decision was made as they were unable to get the usual food supplies into the mining camp.He added that 4×4 vehicles are unable in many instances to pass through the huge mud ditches.He explained that his staff were left without food after the land cruiser he hired to transport the food supplies could not make way into the mining area. He added that the vehicle became stuck in a ditch along the trail and remained there overnight and had to be towed out.“It’s a very frustrating situation. I have a dredge operation and it’s unfair for persons to be working and you can’t get stuff in in a timely manner and in the event of an emergency you can’t get out of there. It’s really rough because we’re all trying to make a living. I would really love if the GGMC can come in here and do some work on this road, grade it a bit or something, this is really unacceptable,” Gomes said.Another miner told this publication that he too was forced to temporarily close his operation. He called on the GGMC to honour its commitment and commence works on the road.The miner noted that the multi-million dollar rehabilitation works done in February of this year on the same road lasted less than two months and described the contractor as a “rip off.”“Earlier this year when the road was impassable, then GGMC stepped in and contracted a firm. They claimed that millions were spent and by April the road was in an atrocious state all over again. Now it’s three months since we are complaining and the GGMC speechless. The contractor should be sanctioned for ripping people off. We all need to work and live and how can we earn a daily bread when we can’t go to work,” the miner stated.Efforts to obtain a comment from the GGMC by this publication Wednesday proved unsuccessful as the Engineers Department forwarded all questions to the Commissioner, whose secretary said he was unavailable.In February of this year, a woman died while she was stranded on the deplorable road for two days. The deceased woman, Patricia Joseph, known as ‘Patsy’ of West Indies Housing Scheme, Bartica, was heading into the Puruni Landing where she worked as a cook, when the truck that she was travelling in got stuck inside a ditch.A post-mortem after the incident revealed that the she died from ruptured arteries.During the same month, Government announced that a contract was signed for the rehabilitation of the Puruni Road after weeks of public outcry from miners and other stakeholders. The contract facilitated the rehabilitation and construction of the Itabali to Puruni Road surface.Miners and business operators who were forced to halt their operations pointed out that the road has been neglected and deteriorated to this state over the past few months.last_img read more

The champ who couldn’t win, won

first_imgKenseth is the metronome of NASCAR. Never misses a beat. Or a gear. He is a tortoise among several dozen Nextel Cup hares. Plodding along earnestly while the other guys jump forward … and fall back. Basically, so no one can win a title the way Kenseth did in 2003. That doesn’t make Kenseth a bad driver. Just not an exciting one. In a Charlotte Observer survey of Cup drivers in 2005, Kenseth ranked behind only Jeff Gordon in voting for the best driver on the circuit. His rivals clearly know how good he is. Even if the average fan does not. His victory Sunday was straight out of the Matt Kenseth playbook: Keep going, let other guys take chances and make mistakes, be up front at the end. In this case, at the very front. He started 25th on an dreary, overcast day, but Kenseth was in the lead by the 30th lap, and he was right around it ever after. A few guys made runs at him. Tony Stewart was right there for 300-plus miles until he was caught speeding entering the pits, penalized and never seen among contenders again. Jeff Burton was on his tail, till he spun his tires on the final restart and dropped back to finish fourth. Dale Earnhardt Jr. might have been competitive, but his engine blew up. Gordon might have pushed Kenseth at the end, but his crew never got his setup quite right and he settled for second place. Kevin Harvick looked primed to catch him until he suffered a flat tire five laps from the end. And Kenseth just kept driving. Right to the checkered flag as darkness fell on the Fontana track and fans who had braved four hours of temperatures in the high 50s. Kenseth, 34, is the perfect corporate driver, the make-no-mistakes extension of a crack team. Led by owner Jack Roush, pushed into fighting trim by crew chief Robbie Reiser. Reiser, it turns out, is as close to controversial as Kenseth gets. Reiser was suspended four weeks and the DeWalt Ford penalized 50 championship points when NASCAR cracked down on cheating at Daytona. Kenseth’s car was found to have “air improperly ducted into the car.” No one thought Kenseth had anything to do with the funny business, but it certainly put him in a 2007 points-race hole. As Roush noted, “It was unprecedented to have points taken away before we had earned any,” and he is appealing the ruling. Kenseth was slogging forward at Daytona, as always, when an accident dropped him into 27th position. Luckily for Kenseth, California Speedway was next on the schedule, a track that already has Kenseth in its Walk of Fame. And that was before he won the Busch Series race Saturday night and the Auto Club 500 on Sunday giving him two Cup victories and four Busch victories in Fontana. Those who have spent time with Kenseth suggest the Wisconsin native isn’t as dull as his driving and post-race interviews might suggest. He has a child, a girlfriend and two cats, named Lars (after Lars Ullrich of the band Metallica), and Charlotte (after the track where Kenseth won his first Cup race). He is a huge fan of the Green Bay Packers and once exchanged helmets with Packers quarterback Brett Favre. Sunday, after he won, he even showed a rare bit of public emotion, almost bursting into tears after climbing out of his car and paying tribute to Reiser, back in North Carolina serving his suspension. But that doesn’t make Kenseth someone who makes fans’ pulses race. No one went home Sunday thinking, “Wow, I saw a race that Matt Kenseth won!” He isn’t in the Holy Trinity of Earnhardt, Stewart and Gordon. He isn’t among the hot kids, like Kyle and Kurt Busch. Nor is he a hunky pin-up such as Carl Edwards or Kasey Kahne. Matt Kenseth just gets results. So did the steel workers who once toiled on the site of this track … and went nearly as unappreciated. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

May as well have the best dull guy in the garage finish first. NASCAR Photo Galleries: • Fans Auto Club 500: One | Two | Three Complete coverage: Motor Sports center_img A sort of reluctant star among dozens of wanna-be superstars. Kenseth came to personify dreary in 2003. That was the year he won exactly one Cup race … but had the championship clinched even before the final event, thanks to 25 top-10 finishes and failing to finish only twice. He was always near the front, rarely in it. And it precipitated something close to panic in NASCAR, which threw away more than four-plus decades of history to come up with a new system for deciding its champion. Some mockingly called it the Matt Kenseth Rule. Actually, it’s known as The Chase for the Cup, NASCAR’s gimmicky postseason, 10 races at the end of the Nextel Cup season that determine a champion. last_img read more

Illegal immigrant suspect in fatal crash

Police allege Velazquez-Nava steered his sport utility vehicle into the wrong lane of Pacific Coast Highway in Pacific Palisades early Wednesday, striking Clark’s sedan head-on. The filmmaker and his son, Ariel Hanrath-Clark, 22, died at the scene. Federal authorities have placed an immigration hold on a 24-year-old Mexican national arrested on suspicion of driving drunk and causing the crash that killed “A Christmas Story” director Bob Clark and his son, officials said Thursday. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement put the hold Wednesday on Hector Velazquez-Nava, an illegal immigrant living in Los Angeles, said agency spokeswoman Virginia Kice. The action means Velazquez-Nava will be turned over to federal immigration officials and placed in deportation proceedings once his local case is completed. He was arrested for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol and gross vehicular manslaughter, and was being held on $100,000 bail in a county jail. If he were to post bail, Velazquez-Nava would be taken into federal custody on the immigration hold, Kice said. last_img read more

Real survive Juve scare to reach CL semis

first_imgMario Mandzukic’s two first-half headers kept the dream alive before Blaise Matuidi capitalised on a Keylor Navas error to pull the Italians level with half an hour left.But, just as a thrilling second leg looked to be heading for extra time, English referee Michael Oliver awarded Real a penalty in stoppage time.With the game in the 97th minute, Ronaldo made no mistake from 12 yards, ensuring a 3-1 defeat on the night but a 4-3 win on aggregate.Gianluigi Buffon, making his 125th and perhaps final Champions League appearance before retirement, was sent off for his protests. If it is to be the 40-year-old’s European farewell, it was a sad way to end.On Wednesday morning, Madrid newspaper Marca had revelled in Barcelona’s collapse against Roma the night before with the headline ‘Total Failure’, but Zinedine Zidane’s side came within a whisker of trumping that with an emphatic loss on their own patch.Gianluigi Buffon is awarded a red card by referee Michael Oliver for complaining at the awarding of a stoppage time penalty. Photo D/MReal conceded the opener after just 76 seconds, the fastest they have ever conceded at home in the Champions League.But Ronaldo came up trumps again, scoring in his 11th consecutive fixture in this competition, extending his own record, and keeping Real on course for a third consecutive European triumph.Zidane had handed Gareth Bale his first Champions League start since September but this was far from a night of redemption for the Welshman. He was hauled off at half-time, with Real two down, and replaced by Marco Asensio.– Real exposed –Edin Dzeko needed six minutes to set Roma on their way against Barcelona, but Juve needed just over one.Sami Khedira hung a deep cross to the back post where Mandzukic powered a header past Navas.His second, eight minutes before half-time, was almost a carbon copy. This time it was substitute Stephan Lichtsteiner, on for Mattia De Sciglio, who was given too much space by Marcelo to cross. Again Mandzukic jumped higher than Dani Carvajal as he nodded between Navas’ right hand and the near post.In between, Real had dictated possession and created chances of their own, but Buffon was in imperious form. Just after Mandzukic got his second goal, Raphael Varane rattled the crossbar with a header to which Buffon got his fingertips.Real, though, were shaky at the back, the channel between Marcelo and 21-year-old Jesus Vallejo regularly offering Juve hope.Buffon (L) was sent off for protesting after the penalty award© AFP OSCAR DEL POZOBale’s night was up at half-time as he and Casemiro were replaced by Zidane’s tried-and-trusted duo in Europe of Vazquez and Asensio.However, Real’s defensive problems were exposed again on the hour.Douglas Costa crossed from the right but Navas dropped the ball, allowing Matuidi to stab home and level the tie.Isco drove towards the bottom corner but Buffon’s hand was there and the game looked to be drifting towards extra-time until the 93rd minute.Hanging in the air at the back post, Ronaldo nodded down to Vazquez who looked certain to score from five yards before Medhi Benatia desperately challenged him from behind.Oliver pointed to the spot much and in the ensuing chaos, Buffon was sent off for his protests.Wojciech Szczesny came on to face the decisive strike of the game.
