first_imgDoctors at the Skeldon Hospital continue their battle to save the life of a young mother, who it is believed ingested a poisonous substance and gave some to her one-year-old baby.The incident occurred on the Upper Corentyne on Saturday morning. On Sunday evening, the woman’s condition was deemed critical.According to a hospital source, since the woman was admitted on Saturday in stable condition, her condition has worsened and up to press time, she was considered to be critical.The source said the infant had showed signs of improvement, but there were some worrying physical signs which had developed over the first 24 hours.

Fire destroys Tucville range houses

first_imgSeveral persons were rendered homeless after a Sunday morning fire destroyed at least two range houses in Tucville, Georgetown.The fire started in the upper flat of the Lot 3-C Tucville terraced house that was occupied by 33-year-old Tonya George and her four children.Guyana Times understands that all five members were at home at the time of the fire which started in one of the bedrooms.George’s sister told this publication that the distraught woman was unsure of what caused the inferno that completely destroyed the house and everything inside.After an alarm was raised about the fire, residents rushed out and attempted to put out the blaze but were unable to prevent it from spreading to the neighbouring range houses.While the Lot 3-D house only suffered a scorched bedroom in the upper flat, the upstairs of Lot 3-B was completely destroyed by the fire and the lower flat suffered extensive water damage.Maureen Daniels-Clarke, who along with her disabled husband, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren lives in the house, told this newspaper that she was in the lower flat when someone alerted them about the fire.“When I came out, I saw the house next door on fire and there was smoke coming out from upstairs (in my house),” the elderly woman related. She recalled running in her house and when she looked up the stairs the upper flat was filled with thick smoke.“We couldn’t do anything or save anything, we just run out,” Daniels-Clarke stated. She further told this newspaper that the firefighters arrived about 20 minutes later but by that time her entire upstairs was engulfed in the blaze.Guyana Times understands that three fire tenders, including one from the Guyana Prison Service, responded to the report and managed to douse the blaze after some time.Meanwhile, an investigation has been launched by the Guyana Fire Service to determine the origin of the fire.last_img read more

Mission foes finish in draw

first_imgLA CANADA FLINTRIDGE – Flintridge Sacred Heart of La Canada Flintridge and Louisville of Woodland Hills might have played to a scoreless draw Wednesday night, but there weren’t any empty feelings being expressed by either team. In a showdown for first place in the Mission League, both girls’ soccer teams were able to leave St. Francis High’s Friedman Field the same way they arrived – without a loss. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita “It’s a good league and it’s good competition. It’s fun to play good teams like (Louisville),” Flintridge Sacred Heart co-coach Frank Pace said. “They play really good defense and they collapse well and they don’t give you a lot of opportunities. They’re a dangerous team … they scrap for every ball, so you have to be alert all the time.” That persistence created two quality scoring opportunities for the Royals in the second half, the first coming when Gina Piazza’s header sailed just over the crossbar in the 50th minute. Fifteen minutes later, Lindsey Minter was denied by Flintridge Sacred Heart goalkeeper Brianna Hodge on a point-blank shot inside 10 yards after receiving a well-placed crossing pass from Leslie Gomez. But with Carrie Clarizio, Mackenzie Kerin and Heather Slattery anchoring Louisville’s defense in front of freshman goalkeeper Katherine Amano – who recorded her ninth shutout – Flintridge Sacred Heart could only create a pair of chances for itself in the second half. Elise Franklin’s crossing pass in the 59th minute found Pip Harrigan near the back post, but Clarizio was able to redirect the freshman’s shot away from Amano. Heather Riley had one of the Tologs’ few open looks at the goal in the 72nd minute, but her shot from 20 yards in with eight minutes left sailed just over the crossbar. Franklin contributed to an equally impressive defensive effort by Flintridge Sacred Heart, with Angie Torres, Stefanie Chan and Lauren Bustos also contributing the Tologs’ ninth shutout. “Getting out of here with a tie is big time,” said Louisville coach Jose Perez, whose team extended its unbeaten streak to nine games. “That’s a great team over there (in Flintridge Sacred Heart). Both teams had their chances to score and both goalies made great saves. It was a good game to watch.” Flintridge Sacred Heart (12-2-2, 1-0-2) – ranked seventh by the Daily News – controlled the flow of play in the first half, producing three of its six corner kicks in a seven-minute stretch. But No. 5 Louisville (7-3-6, 3-0-1) withstood the pressure, before regrouping to create a handful of quality chances for itself in the final 40 minutes. center_img “You cherish any point you can get in this league,” said Pace, whose team plays at four-time defending league champion Harvard-Westlake of Studio City on Saturday. “It’s a 10-game marathon, not a sprint.

Impact of illegal workers debated

first_imgWASHINGTON – Illegal workers help some people in the economy but hurt others. The millions of illegal workers – from fruit pickers to office cleaners – in the United States have come under a fresh spotlight as Congress and President Bush grapple with revamping the nation’s immigration policies. Illegal workers’ relationship to the economy is intricate. They are willing to work for lower wages than legal workers, helping to keep down prices. But illegal immigrants also can depress wages for unskilled, legal workers and strain local hospitals and schools. Between 1980 and 2000, legal and illegal immigration reduced the average annual earnings of U.S.-born men by an estimated $1,700 or roughly 4 percent, according to research done in 2004 by George Borjas, economics professor at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. The situation was worse if one considers only the 10 million U.S.-born men who lack a high school degree. For them, the increased supply of workers depressed wages by 7.4 percent, he found. Economists at the Federal Reserve banks in Dallas and Atlanta found no evidence in 2003 that wages of higher- skilled U.S.-born workers were hurt by immigration, although lower-wage workers were affected. Illegal immigrants use federal, state and local resources, including schools, medical care and emergency services, straining government coffers and costing taxpayers money. However, many of the costs are tied to their kids – many of them American-born children who are U.S. citizens. At the federal level, the big cost is through Medicaid and food-assistance programs, according to Steven Camarota, research director at the Center for Immigration Studies, which favors stricter immigration rules. Camarota acknowledges that some illegal immigrants pay federal taxes, but he said their cost to the federal government – $12 billion, according to his estimate – is greater. There’s another way to look at it. Since they pay payroll taxes, they’re helping to bankroll Social Security and Medicare but won’t get to participate in the programs because of their status. Experts note that illegal immigrants spend part of their paychecks in this country – for food, clothes, furniture, living expenses and other things – all of which contribute to economic growth. But many also send some of their earnings back to their native countries. Still, they expand the nation’s overall labor pool and productivity. “We can make more stuff and that can add to overall economic activity,” said Andrew Bernard, professor of international economics at Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business. In Congress, diverse proposals have been offered to deal with the immigration issue. House-passed legislation takes a tough approach, including provisions making illegal immigrants’ presence in this country a felony. A Senate proposal sets out a path that would make illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. before 2004 eligible for permanent residency. If all the illegal workers in this country were booted out tomorrow, economists believe wages would have to rise significantly to get U.S.-born workers to take their jobs. “It would take time for that to occur and during this period of adjustment – some things might not get done – maybe some crops won’t be picked or some hotel rooms won’t get cleaned,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Economy.com. In some cases, companies might opt to invest in automation rather than hire higher-paid workers, economists said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It is interwoven, and it is very hard to extract,” said Terry Connelly, dean of the Ageno School of Business at Golden Gate University in San Francisco. “It is like pulling some sort of piece of thread out of a fabric. If you pull that thread out, you don’t know to what degree you have weakened the fabric.” There are an estimated 11 million to 12million illegal immigrants in the United States. Some 7.2 million of them are employed – about 5 percent of the U.S. labor force – according to the Pew Hispanic Center, a research organization. The illegal workers are mostly men and are heavily concentrated in construction, agriculture and cleaning jobs, Pew says. Those jobs tend to be low skill or unskilled manual labor, economists said. “From lawn services to meat packing. You name it. The primary benefit to consumers from illegal workers is lower prices,” said Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at Global Insight. For businesses, cheap labor can translate into fatter profits. If owners use those profits to expand their businesses, it would boost economic activity. While consumers and businesses may benefit from such cheap labor, the U.S. born-worker could be hurt by it, according to some research. last_img read more

Do your kids play Fortnite? Parents urged to be vigilant after boy threatened online

first_imgPolice in Northern Ireland are urging parents to check on their children’s online safety after a 12-year-old boy was threatened over Snapchat in relation to a popular video game. A boy in Co. Antrim was recently added on Snapchat by a stranger who asked him for photos in exchange for Fortnite vouchers. When the boy stopped communicating, the person threatened to post the photos on Facebook.The video game Fortnite is played by millions of people worldwide and has been increasingly popular among teenagers during the school holidays. This incident was shared by the PSNI as a warning over internet safety.PSNI Ballymena said: “We recently had a report of a 12yr old boy being added on Snapchat by a stranger. They spoke about the game Fortnite and after a while the kid was asked to send pictures of himself for which he would receive £500 in Fortnite vouchers. He was offered £100 for his face and more for more graphic images.”The boy sent one photo, which was not of a graphic nature, but when more were requested he stopped messaging the person.The person then threatened the boy that he would have his picture posted on Facebook if he did not continue communicating. The PSNI are urging people to be careful online: “No one will give you money or vouchers if you send them pics. It simply will not happen. There is always an ulterior motive behind it and some creep on the other end looking to exploit you.”“To paraphrase an old phrase if its too good to be true it usually is.“Parents it’s worth while looking into safe online practices and monitoring your kids internet usage and time to ensure they are safe.”Do your kids play Fortnite?
