Region 5 sourcing land from GuySuCo to develop new dumpsite

first_imgThe Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) administration is currently consulting with the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) to obtain a plot of land to resolve the region’s solid waste management woes.Regional Executive Officer (REO) Ovid Morrison, during a press conference in theRegion Five REO, Ovid Morrison (center) along with two regional executivesregional administration’s boardroom on Tuesday, revealed the road to the present dumpsite at Rosignol is extremely inaccessible to vehicles, particularly during the rainy season. “None of the sanitation trucks are going through the mud to dump… the road we have would not allow them to carry garbage into the site which is a setback for the region. So… there are persons who are carrying garbage and dumping it on the side,” he is quoted by the Department of Public Information as saying.While the regional administration has set aside $905 million for the rehabilitation of the pathway to the Rosignol site this year, the REO explained that they are looking towards a more long-term solution. The administration is working alongside the Communities Ministry and GuySuCo to locate a plot of land to develop a dumpsite of acceptable standards.More than three sites have been identified according to the REO, however, because of health concerns, these options were disregarded. He explained, when selecting a site, the prevention of contamination to waterways and proximity to residential and agricultural areas must be considered.The rehabilitation of the road to the Rosignol site will be undertaken by the region’s junior engineer in collaboration with the Public Infrastructure Ministry.last_img read more

New boy Mustafa sends Gor to Kagame semis

first_imgK’Ogalo who reached the final when they last played in 2015 will face the winner between Azam and Rayon Sport who play in the last quarter final on Monday afternoon.Fighting huge chunks of fatigue playing their third match in less than a week, Gor found themselves trailing after 15 minutes when Lwanga caught out keeper Boniface Oluoch with a rasping shot from distance.Gor had chances to draw back, the first half’s best chances falling on Mustafa who however wasted. First, he was picked out by Godfrey Walusimbi, but he could not put enough sting on his shot which was well collected by the Vipers keeper.Gor Mahia’s George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo vies for the ball with Vipers’ Milton Karisa during the CECAFA Kagame Cup Quarter Finals at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on July 8, 2018.Ten minutes to half time, the Burundian forward was sent through by Innocent Wafula, but once again he could not muster a way to beat the Vipers Custodian who came out tops in the situation.A few minutes to half time, Gor coach Dylan Kerr was forced into a change, midfielder Ernest Wendo limping out injured and was replaced by Francis Kahata who was returning to the starting team after being left out in their last group match.A change of tempo by the Kenyan representatives in the second half bore fruit after just two minutes, when Tuyisenge got to the end of a Mustafa shot to beat the Vipers keeper.Mustafa thought he had given his side the lead after 64 minutes, but his goal was ruled out for offside. Nonetheless, he made amends for his earlier misses in the 73rd minute when he pounced on a loose ball at the edge of the box to tap home after the keeper spilled Tuyisenge’s shot.Meanwhile in the other quarter final, Tanzanian champions Simba SC progressed to the last four after beating Djibouti’s Ports by a solitary goal.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia’s new signing Francis Mustafa celebrates his winner against Vipers during the CECAFA Kagame Cup Quarter Finals at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on July 8, 2018.NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 8- Burundian forward Francis Mustafa tapped home from close range in the 73rd minute as Gor Mahia came from behind to beat Ugandan champions Vipers 2-1 at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Sunday afternoon to qualify for the CECAFA Kagame Cup semi-finals.Gor were forced to come from behind after Taddeo Lwanga had struck the Ugandans ahead on the quarter hour mark, with Jacques Tuyisenge striking home the equalizer two minutes after the break before Mustafa won the game for the Kenyan champions 17 minutes to the final whistle.last_img read more

‘Dream come true’- Courtois hails Real move

first_img0Shares0000Courtois has joined Real on a six-year deal at the age of 26 © AFP / JAVIER SORIANOMADRID, Spain, Aug 9 – Thibaut Courtois said his move to Real Madrid from Chelsea was a “dream come true”, as he was unveiled by the European champions at the Santiago Bernabeu on Thursday.The 26-year-old goalkeeper joined Real for a reported fee of 35 million euros on a six-year deal, with midfielder Mateo Kovacic departing Madrid for Stamford Bridge on a season-long loan. “Today is a dream come true for me, you can’t imagine how happy I am,” said Courtois, who won the Golden Glove award as the World Cup’s best goalkeeper after helping Belgium finish third last month.“Coming to the best club in the world is a responsibility and an honour. I’d like to thank Real Madrid for the efforts they’ve made, and all the people who have contributed to bringing me to play here.“I want to show I can match the expectations this badge entails.”Courtois signed his contract alongside Real president Florentino Perez in the corridors of the Bernabeu, and in front of the club’s record 13 European Cup trophies.“Throughout my career, I’ve done my best at every club I’ve played for,” he added.He will be only the second Belgian to play for the capital-city giants, after Fernand Goyvaerts, who was at Real from 1965-1967.“Real Madrid can boast the arrival of one of the world’s best goalkeepers, if not the very best,” said Perez.“He comes to Real Madrid at 26 years of age, but having already experienced huge success in European football.”Courtois is expected to take over as first-choice ‘keeper from Costa Rican Keylor Navas, but says he is prepared to fight for the shirt, having had to replace Petr Cech when he returned to Chelsea from a long loan spell at Atletico Madrid in 2014, before going on to make 126 Premier League appearances for the Blues.“It would be a mistake to give guarantees (to one of the two goalkeepers),” he said. “You have to demonstrate in training that you should play, and you have to keep it that way.“Wherever I played, I wasn’t given guarantees. When I came to Chelsea in 2014, I had to replace Petr Cech. We became friends and today I’m still talking to him.“Goalkeepers are a group of friends in the dressing room, we get along well, which is important in life.”Real will be desperate to get off to a quick start this season under new coach Julen Lopetegui, after the surprise departure of Zinedine Zidane following their third straight Champions League triumph in June.Courtois is their first major signing of the close season, although the Spanish transfer window, unlike England’s which closes at 1600 GMT on Thursday, stays open until the end of August.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

400 court interpreters strike over wages

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! More than 400 court interpreters working in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties went on strike today, saying their wages are a third to half what interpreters are paid by other employers. Officials with the interpreters’ union, the California Federation of Interpreters, say low wages and poor working conditions have caused a shortage of interpreters working for the courts. “Interpreters have only had two cost-of-living increases in eight years,” said Silvia Barden, who heads the CFI. “We’re excluded from the salary step system other employees have that provides regular increases based on years of service.” Salary proposals would have no impact on the county budget, say CFI officials, because significant increases for interpreters have already been allocated.last_img read more

LEADING SINN FEIN POLITICIANS TO VISIT DONEGAL ON ‘RURAL’ RAMBLE

first_imgLeading Sinn Fein politicians Martin Ferris TD and Senator Trevor O Clochartaigh will visit Donegal on Monday as part of their party’s push to protect rural Ireland.Speaking in advance of the visit on Monday, Donegal Deputy Pearse Doherty said the group will engage with various groups, representative of rural communities, as part of Sinn Féin’s Love Rural Ireland Campaign.“Rural Ireland is under attack. The policies of austerity are stripping local communities of essential services – of schools, of guidance counsellors, hospitals, post-offices and Garda stations. It is also adding new stealth taxes like the Universal Social Charge, the Family Home Tax, VAT increases, motor tax increases and septic tank charges. “Donegal has, time and time again, topped the tables in terms of disadvantage but instead of allocating resources to address this problem, this Government has chosen to implement bad policy leading to the steady erosion of basic services in the county,” he said.The Donegal South West Deputy said businesses, shops and pubs in rural towns and villages are closing while small indigenous businesses, including small farmers, with no real support from the government or credit from the banks, are going under.“All of this and the absence of equality of access to public services threatens the quality of life of people living in rural Ireland.“Our campaign is about engaging with the sectors that have been hit hardest as a result of the Government’s anti-rural agenda with a view to developing a Rural Development plan, which will provide a framework for the development and sustainability of rural communities. “As part of the day’s engagements, there will be a public meeting held in the Yard in Falcarragh at 8pm and I would encourage individuals and community representatives interested in the issues affecting rural communities to attend.” LEADING SINN FEIN POLITICIANS TO VISIT DONEGAL ON ‘RURAL’ RAMBLE was last modified: January 11th, 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:donegalMartin Ferris TDPearse DohertySinn Feinlast_img read more
