Steven Ryan/Getty Images/AFPVasyl Lomachenko goes for a world title in a third weight division in just his 12th pro bout on Saturday as he challenges World Boxing Association lightweight champion Jorge Linares.Ukraine’s Lomachenko, a two-time Olympic gold medallist who has made a meteoric rise in the pro ranks, will face a daunting introduction to the 135-pound (61kg) class as he takes on the Venezuelan making the seventh defense of his title.ADVERTISEMENT Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding “Now my name is ‘No Mas Chenko’” Lomachenko quipped in the ring after humbling Rigondeaux to improve to 10-1.But Linares, who has showed his resolve in recent bouts against Anthony Crolla and Luke Campbell, says there’s no way he’ll throw in the towel.“I will never do that, I will never give up,” he said. “People always talk about and heap praise on Lomachenko because all of his opponents abandon (the fight).“I’m not a boxer who abandons (a fight).”Linares acknowledged that Lomachenko is “very fast with his hands, he’s got great footwork and great angles,” but said the Ukrainian’s tendency to repeat his moves makes him vulnerable.ADVERTISEMENT ‘Stop romanticizing Pinoy resilience’ P16.5-M worth of aid provided for Taal Volcano eruption victims — NDRRMC “I always want a challenge — always,” Lomachenko said. “At 130 (pounds) we can’t organize a top fight with a champion.

Guyanese couple charged for NYC welfare fraud

first_imgA Queens, New York City, couple has been charged for stealing nearly US$92,000 in welfare food stamps and healthcare benefits by concealing income the couple earned through employment.The arrest of the husband and wife was announced by New York State Inspector General Catherine Leahy Scott and Queens County District Attorney Richard A Brown.Dhaneshwar Sukhdeo, 42; and Samantha Sukhdeo, 46; of Lefferts Boulevard, were each arrested and charged with grand larceny in the second degree, welfare fraud in the second degree, conspiracy in the fourth degree and 12 counts each of falsifying business records in the first degree and offering a false instrument for filing in the first degree, all felonies.The charges alleged that the couple falsified applications for public assistance benefits enabling them to receive $16,132 in food stamp benefits and $75,864 in Medicaid coverage to which they were not entitled.“Through a brazen fraud, these defendants concealed their employment income so they could steal taxpayer-funded public benefits to which they were not entitled,” Inspector General Leahy Scott said in a release to the media.“I will continue to use all of the resources at my disposal to protect the integrity of the public benefits system for those who are truly in the most need of financial assistance,” she added.Meanwhile, District Attorney Brown pointed out that, “Food stamps and Medicaid benefits are intended to help the truly needy. The defendants in this case, however, are alleged to have taken advantage of the system by downplaying their income to collect assistance – making all taxpayers victims of their con.”According to reports, investigations by Inspector General Leahy Scott found that between 2009 to 2016, the Sukhdeos fraudulently obtained $91,996 in welfare benefits to which they were not entitled by repeatedly submitting documents falsifying and concealing their household income when applying for food stamps (also known as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programme, or SNAP) and Medicaid coverage.Medicaid is a joint federal-state programme that provides health coverage for low-income and at-risk individuals. In repeated applications and recertifications for the benefits, the Sukhdeos listed no employment income for Dhaneshwar Sukhdeo, who was indeed receiving income as an electrical contractor.Altogether, the Sukhdeos received $75,864.74 in Medicaid and $16,132 in food stamps to which they were not entitled.The Sukhdeos were both arraigned on the charges in Queens Criminal Court last month and released on their own recognisance pending their reappearance in court on June 12.last_img read more

Linden professionals benefit from TB/HIV Peer Education training

first_imgProfessionals from across the Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) community last week benefitted from a TB/HIV (Tuberculosis/Human Immunodeficiency Virus) Peer Education training organised through the Public Health Ministry under the National Tuberculosis programme initiative.The activity, which was conducted at the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC), targeted professionals such as Head Teachers, religious leaders, law enforcement officers and media personnel, among others.According to officials attached to the initiative, it aims at enhancing public education on TB and HIV through participation in outreach activities and dissemination of information to various sections of society.The programme forms part of the Public Health Ministry’s 2019 budgeted training plan.Administrative Manager attached to the TB/HIV Department of the Ministry’s Disease Control National TB programme, Rhonda Cripaul said it mainly sought to sensitise participants so that they can go back into society and spread the message about what was learnt.“The purpose of the Peer Education training is to sensitise the community about tuberculosis – what it is, what are the classic signs and symptoms, the mode of transmission, the medication. We also do drug-resistant TB, we touched on adherence because adherence is a very big component of taking the treatment. We’re also touching on infection control too which is really important – it helps persons to know, ‘well look this is how I can protect myself and my family’. So, you can contain the spread of the disease,” she highlighted.Cripaul, who was one of the facilitators, in her presentation, narrowed in on peer education and communication which she explained was aimed at empowering participants on important aspects such as verbal communication skills and how they can educate people in the community about the disease. It also entailed a case study as well as focus on stigma and discrimination.“It’s really just getting the message out there, educating persons so they’re able to take the message further – back to their homes, workplaces and back to their community,” Cripaul said.She further alluded to the outstanding work put out by the Linden Chest Clinic which manages TB and HIV cases in the region.“Linden has been doing very good work in terms of their cure rate. You have a very dedicated team located at the Wismar Hospital Chest Clinic headed by Dr Roscoe McDonald. They work closely with the community in containing the spread of TB and with the patients in ensuring that they see them through to the end of the treatment. They have the highest cure rate for last year which is excellent,” Cripaul said.TB/HIV focal person and department head, Dr Rhonda Williams was also part of the initiative.The National Tuberculosis programme is headed by Dr Jeetendra Mohanlall, who serves as Programme Manager. The initiative was hosted in Region 5 last year and in Region 4 in 2017.Some of the participants at the workshoplast_img read more
