Hopeless state of administration of Georgetown municipality

first_imgDear Editor,It just takes a casual glance at Georgetown’s iconic landmark; the Stabroek Market in its current sorry state, to realise that it mirrors completely the hopeless state of the administration of the Georgetown municipality.At the highest point of this historic structure is a weather vane, wind vane, or weathercock – which ever you want to call it – and which was put there to show citizens the direction and speed of the wind. This does not work.Looking up at the legendary clock so strategically placed in our nation’s capital, and built somewhere between 1880 and 1881, one can see each dial telling a different time, which of course is because the clock is defective and has been so for decades, due to the Council failing to maintain it. More egregious is that more than two years ago, the Council begged a foreign mission and obtained full funding to have the clocks rehabilitated and returned to working order.Regrettably, having received this money, they have failed to fix the clock giving the flimsy excuse that the tower housing the clock needs to be repaired first before the clock could be rehabilitated. Did they not know this before obtaining funds to repair the clock? And why with the passage of more than two years, this modest tower but historical masterpiece could not be repaired? To add insult to injury, they have haphazardly hung a string of lights to further deface the structure and highlight at night, the fact that the clocks are not working. The City Council should be ashamed of itself.Going around to the back of Stabroek Market, one is confronted with the broken-down wharf that collapsed several years ago, and for which the Council has failed to even attempt repairs. Instead they have had a grand plan drawn up for a fancy edifice to be put up, using the Central Government’s sources of funding which really means the VAT and other taxes you and I have to pay to the State. Could the Council say what it is doing with all of the stall rents, vendors’ fees and other municipal taxes that they collect that should be used to maintain municipal markets? I hope it is not wasted on foreign trips.Then there is the act of cultural barbarism, impropriety and venality where the Council’s administration has allowed a vendor to build a two-storied structure that adjoins the North-eastern side of the Stabroek Market structure. This ugly projection which incidentally does not have the approval of the Council, nor the National Trust, blemishes significantly this heritage structure and severely hampers the natural airflow of the market. Why does the Communities Ministry, the Council, the National Trust of Guyana or the Guyana Historical and Research Society not awaken from their slumber, and correct this savagery?Venturing inside this dark, dank, rat infested municipal market more often than not, one is either molested by some urchins who will attempt to sell you stolen items, or alternately try to choke and rob you right under the noses of some unconcerned City Constables.But that aside, one is confronted with a most cluttered, untidy and chaotic market that now houses more than a thousand business persons. Long ago stalls were arranged in neat rows with wide passages that allowed the fire tender to drive all the way from the front to the back of the market in the event of a conflagration. Today not even the fire hose could be stretched from the front to the back of the market.How could we the citizens expect our City Council to manage our capital city when they cannot even manage a simple municipal market. How could we expect Georgetown to advance with such corrupt, incompetent and desperate persons at the helm?Sincerely,Jermain Johnsonlast_img read more

Over 500 coconut farmers affected by oil mill shutdown

first_img…persons fear grave economic hardships – farmers associationAfter being fined $1 million by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for dumping coconut waste into tributaries of the Pomeroon River, the coconut oil factory has decided to shut down operations, affecting the livelihood of over 500 farmers.The EPA had imposed a $1 million penalty for dumping shells and husks into canals, which lead into the river, located in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam). Fat Boy Coconut Ventures, which is managed by Alphonso and Sons Enterprise, was required to pay the $1 million penalty for dumping an estimated 15,000 coconut shells.President of the Pomeroon Coconut Farmers Association, Glenrick Ali told Guyana Times that operations have ceased and many foresee grave economic hardships. He added that since the penalty was imposed last month, there has been no long-term alternative to get rid of the waste materials generated.The Government Analyst Food and Drug Department would have to intervene, advising the company on the dynamics of disposing the materials on land since there are complications with infestation from pests and rodents. As customary, the company would extract and bottle the coconut water but does not utilise the jelly pulp, which is discarded with the husky outer shell.“It would be great economic hardship for now until they resume and we don’t know when. They might pay [the fine] but they still have to find an alternative means to dispose of the husk. They could put it on land but the Food and Drug Department would have to tell them what distance away from the bottling facility the husk would have to be disposed. As it rot, it would gather flies, roaches and so on. The company does not make use of the jelly so that would gather insects very fast,” said Ali.For now, operations are suspended and many farmers have lost their livelihood along with other employees of the factory. The President of the farmers’ association was convinced that the closed facility was the most dynamic in the Caribbean, processing 15,000 nuts per day. Now, only one other bottling facility remains, which cannot ease the current production rate.“There is one other bottling facility operating presently. This facility that’s closing processes 15,000 nuts per day for last month. It is the best because it is the only one with the capacity to process that many nuts per day. The closure would affect over 500 farmers and their families and the facility employs about 30 persons so they would be without jobs until they open again and we don’t know when,” he posited. Efforts to contact Alphonso and Sons Enterprise for an update on how soon the company will pay the fine proved futile.In a previous report, the EPA had stated that shells and husks are a major contributor to flooding and more so, it poses a hazard to the waterways, since residents rely on the water for daily activities.Officers of the EPA had visited the area and had warned of the consequences if the company did not desist from dumping the waste. This reportedly continued and as such, the sanctions were imposed. The company had agreed to pay the fine within 30 days, which expired on July 31.Just over one year ago, the pronouncement was made to revive Guyana’s coconut industry and create value-added products for the international market. Consultations were done with farmers and many sought resources to get involved. Some had already owned acres of coconut plants which required attention to produce favourable results. On the other hand, entrepreneurs ventured into the manufacturing sector to bottle the water.Chief Executive Officer of National Agricultural Research and Extension Institute (NAREI), Dr Oudho Homenauth had told officials of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) that the budding coconut industry can be a major contributor to economic development of the region through the development of more coconut-based products because, as he highlighted, every part of the coconut can be used for one purpose or another.last_img read more

Thika’s Eugene Mukangula joins AFC Leopards

first_imgThe forward has been a long term target for Leopards and his addition to the club will boost the scoring fortunes that have been heavily reliant on Ezekiel Odera.Also signing for the club from Thika United is midfielder Musa Saad who has previously played for Nairobi City Stars and he joins the 13-time Kenyan Premier League champions on a two-year deal.“I think they are very good additions to the team especially Mukangula because the coach had insisted so much on a striker. We are sure his qualities will be of huge value to us in the second leg,” AFC Leopards Secretary General Oscar Igaida said.He added; “We will be looking for at least three more signings; one striker, a midfielder and a defender. But if we got two of our targets, then I think we will still be okay.”AFC Leopards are currently placed fourth in the Kenyan premier league standings with 31 points, nine short of arch rivals Gor Mahia who lead the log on an unbeaten run.Zapata remains confident that despite the gulf of difference between the two sides and Gor still having four matches at hand, Ingwe are in a good way to quench their two-decade wait for the league title.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Posta Rangers midfielder Jerry Santo passes the ball under pressure from Thika United’s Eugene Mukangula during a Kenyan Premier League clash at the Ruaraka Complex on September 23, 2017.

Making Work Safe with Donaghy Safety Training – How to stop alcohol/drug misuse

first_imgNeil Donaghy and his team of leading safety experts at Donaghy Safety Training Ltd. look at how to implement a policy to promote health and well-being in your business.Throughout Europe, alcohol and other drug problems in the workplace are a major factor in accidents, absenteeism and reduced productivity. The cost to employers runs into millions each year, in addition to the personal, social and financial impact on the person and their family.In the last decade Ireland had the highest increase in alcohol consumption among EU countries with a 41% increase in per capita consumption (hope, 2001). The 2003 slan national lifestyle survey found that 78% of adults in Ireland drink alcohol and of these 30% of males and 22% of females consume more than the recommended weekly limits of reasonable alcohol consumption. Also, experimental substance use has also increased over the last two decades with the level of substance use in general higher among young people in Ireland than in other countries (Brinkley et al., 1999). Data presented in the 2002 annual report of the European monitoring centre for drugs and drug addiction (emcdda) estimate that one in five Irish adults between the age of 18 and 64 have used an illegal drug.The recognition of the cost to industry of alcohol and other drug related problems have given impetus to the development of services aimed at the prevention, early identification and treatment of problemsWhy the workplace?The workplace has been identified as an ideal setting to promote health and well-being through health promotion activities and the implementation of workplace policies. Drug and alcohol issues are of increasing concern for workplaces today. For workers….Alcohol/substance abuse can result in deteriorating health, as well as family and relationship problems, injury, disciplinary action and other work-related problems.For employers…Substance abuse can lead to safety problems affecting the business, the workforce and customers. This ultimately leads to increased costs, lower productivity and can result in the loss of that ‘competitive’ edge a business needs to continuously thrive. Research shows that a notably high level of performance impairment can occur after relatively low quantities of alcohol and drugs have been consumed (Modell & Mountz, 1990). These findings support the theory of broad based prevention management programmes rather than concentrating on the rehabilitation of heavy drinkers.There are many benefits for employers who implement an alcohol and drug policy. These include: – a healthier workforce – reduced absenteeism, sickness, occupational injuries, late work arrival etc. – increased productivity and efficiency – improved staff relations/communications– an enhanced corporate image and better customer relationsKey elements of a successfully implemented policy– an alcohol/drug policy provides the precise framework for a business to address such issues in a positive supportive manner while complying with legislation in relation to health & safety in the workplace – the policy should clearly outline how the business will deal with alcohol/drug issues if they arise– the policy should be easy to understand, accessible– it should be communicated in a positive, clearly way, detailing all procedures– the policy should apply to all employees of all grades– workplace confidentiality should be addressed – the policy should be continuously reviewed and monitored When developing a workplace policy…. Broad consultation is vital for the successful implementation of any workplace policy and should be constructed with relevant input from both inside and outside of the business realm. Within the business input should include:– senior management– human resources (hr) department– occupational health (oh) department– health & safety advisors– employee representatives, to include unionsoutside the business input from the following agencies/organisations should be considered:– local alcohol/drug services– hse– employer support groups– Gardaí– local community based organisations/groupsIrish regsSafety, health and welfare at work act 2005 does not introduce legally binding regulations compelling employers to provide testing for drugs and alcohol at the workplace.The health & safety authority (HSA) has published voluntary guidelines on intoxicants testing at work.There are a number of collective agreements at company and sector level relating to testing procedures (mainly in transport and defence).

SA to become electricity-savvy

first_img6 February 2008Empty buildings with all the lights left on and home use of energy-guzzling heating and lighting methods may be a thing of the past, should government’s new energy saving proposals be enacted.These suggestions, as well as the use of solar power in new houses, flats and businesses, among others, are contained in the proposed new energy-saving regulations which are to be included in the Electricity Regulation Act.“The aim of this campaign is to change the behaviour of consumers,” Minerals and Energy Minister Buyelwa Sonjica said at the launch of South Africa’s National Energy Efficiency Campaign on Tuesday.The minister urged South Africans to switch off lights not in use, such as those in offices after working hours – as well as street lights during broad daylight.The new regulations will also promote the use of energy-efficient light bulbs in place of incandescent lights.Sonjica said the campaign, which will cost between R20-million and R40-million, would also look at the demand side management programme, with measures such as solar traffic lights, solar power heaters and creative systems lighting (CSL) set to come into effect soon.Sonjica said Eskom has agreed to make one million solar water heaters available to encourage South Africans to use this alternative source of heating, as opposed to mains powered geysers.“By adhering to the regulations, switching off lights in offices from 10pm to 6am for government buildings, except security lights, we can save about 1 080 megawatts, while working in our offices using daylight instead of electric light can save about 1 200 megawatts,” she said.Sonjica said the regulations would be supported by an electricity rationing framework, to be proposed in due course.The proposed regulations include making use of solar heating panels in both commercial and residential buildings, to be implemented before 2010.New houses, flats and townhouses valued at over R750 000 will be required to install electric geysers which incorporate a solar water heating facility. Residences that exceed 300 square meters will also have to install solar powered geysers.Office blocks, hospitals, hotels and resorts and shopping complexes feeding from a centralised water heating system will also be expected to install solar powered heating systems.All new geysers on the market will have to have insulation blankets which prevent heat from escaping and therefore save energy.It has also been proposed that heating, ventilation and cooling systems in commercial and residential buildings as well as swimming pools be fitted with a facility whereby the supply of electricity can be controlled remotely.The regulations will allow municipalities to pass by-laws, which will be in the interest of energy efficiency.Comments on the regulations must be submitted to the department no later than 25 February 2008.All comments must be addressed to Ompi Aphane and either e-mailed to LF.aphane@dme.gov.za or pm.ngobeni@dme.gov.za or posted to the Department of Minerals and Energy at Private Bag X59, Pretoria, 0001.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

GTT to Fit Out Brittany Ferries’ PEGASIS

first_imgzoom GTT membrane technology has been selected by STX France to fit out PEGASIS (Power Efficient GAS Innovative Ship), the new environmental ferry propelled with LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), ordered by Brittany Ferries.This innovative vessel will use GTT Mark III insulation system and will be built in Saint-Nazaire, in France. It should be delivered by the end of 2016.In addition, GTT has also been selected to design the tanks of three other Brittany Ferries ships to be converted to LNG propulsion.This order has arrived within the context of new European regulations, relating to sulphur oxide emissions, which strongly incites ship-owners to consider using less polluting fuels. With this prospect, propulsion with LNG represents one of the most competitive methods in order to respect the objectives of reducing emissions imposed by these new regulations.Moreover, the membrane technology developed by GTT for LNG propulsion offers the ship-owners many advantages of optimization of space and cost. Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT declared: “This order marks the entrance of GTT into the new field of LNG bunkering, and demonstrates once again our clear expertise in the LNG industry. GTT is perfectly positioned to accompany its ship-owner customers during the industry-wide evolution towards more environmental ships.” My location Print  Close 此页面无法正确加载 Google 地图。您是否拥有此网站?确定 GTT, January 23, 2014last_img read more
