Trotman’s failed bit of poetry

first_imgDear Editor,Whilst the coalition Government is holding on to power for dear life, the coalition-sponsored ‘Outreach Circus’, a political gimmick meant to revitalise or resurrect the Government, has concluded and has failed miserably to meaningfully resolve any social and economic issues affecting the various regions. People came empty-handed and went home the same way as crimes and cost of living continue to spiral out of control.Can you imagine that on Saturday last while the Public Security Minister was on television making ridiculous claims of the PPP intending to rig election via Facebook, two gunmen were leisurely robbing a Chinese supermarket just a stone’s throw away from the Albion Police Station? The men, armed with one AK 47, waltzed into the supermarket, robbed the business, sent the police patrol scampering for cover as they shot ad lib and then strolled away without even a bullet being fired in return by the police. All of this happened around 9 pm! It seems we now need a 7 pm curfew! It is a fact that daring and armed banditry is on the increase and quoting statistics will do nothing to erase that.On the other hand, the lines at all the money transfer places such as MoneyGram and Western Union continue to be overflowing. I have never witnessed such a spectacle before but this is heralding the return of the dark Burnham era. It is a fact that the poor in Guyana are getting poorer daily and are once again mustering their ingenuity and resilience which made them survive during those dark days. However, this time, many have benefitted from the 10-year visitor’s visa, compliments of the PPP/C Government and do not have to take the perilous ‘back track’ route. These are the people who are going and work for a six-month period and sending remittances to their families. This has greatly buffered the harsh economic realities which have gripped this country since 2015. These people have sacrificed their family ties just to feed them! What a shame on this Government! I could recall the late Dr Walter Rodney’s statement that the PNC has the “Midas touch” meaning that everything they touched transformed into excrement. Now the issuance of these visas has fallen by 80 per cent, compliments of the coalition Government which has run the economy to the dust and returned Guyana to mendicancy. The issuance of visitors’ visas, other things being equal, are linked to the economic prosperity of a country.Once again, the PNC-led coalition Government is unleashing a socio-economic onslaught of gigantic proportions. Over 30,000 persons were dismissed while thousands of youths are without jobs and even those employed by GuySuCo have not received any increase in their wages since 2015. The majority of employees earn a paltry $10,000 (US$50) per week with a minimum wage of $2000 per day. How is a person supposed to survive on this? Once again, Guyanese are engaged in doing all sorts of menial things to supplement their incomes. Fishing is no longer a hobby for many of them and gardening is no longer therapy! Children have once again been forced to resort to the vending of odd items and prostitution is on the rise.We have heard the coalition Government bragging about ‘skills training’ for sugar workers but there have been no reports of jobs created and so far we have more ‘skilled’ unemployed persons. The four closed estates are still to be privatised whilst they have been completely abandoned. Once again, the nation is losing billions of dollars on the value of canes which were left standing, deteriorating infrastructures and cannibalised factories. Minister Jordan had said he will not “moth balled” them but will make them operational to increase their sale value. What a joke! The loan of $30 billion is yet to be accounted for.Minister Trotman had said that “This country as the sun rises in the East is not going to be left behind. Guyana will rise from Berbice”. Well, Minister, since the closing of the estates and your bit of poetry, the only things rising are corruption, cost of living, suicide rates, crime rates and prostitution rates among our females.Yours sincerely,Haseef Yusuflast_img read more

Petitot River fire conditions too dangerous for crews: officials

first_imgProvincial wildfire officials say a 20-person team is on its way north to the Fort Nelson region to assess and prioritize firefighting efforts against more than 30 fires in the area, including the Petitot River fire that’s inching closer to a nearby gas plant.Jill Kelsh says high wind and dry conditions are thwarting efforts to get crews on the ground to fight the fire at Petitot River, a 3,700 hectare blaze that has come with 10 kilometre’s of Pennwest Petroleum’s Wildboy plant.Fifteen workers at the plant, who were placed on alert earlier this week, were ordered to evacuate today due to the volatile conditions.- Advertisement -“We’re expecting extreme fire behaviour,” said Kelsh.“At this time, it’s just not safe to get out in front of the fire with our crews.”The Petitot River fire is located about 115 kilometres northeast of Fort Nelson.Advertisement Crews have so far only set up a series of sprinklers west of the fire, according to Kelsh, and are working to prevent the fire from jumping to the north side of the river.Kelsh says there are more than 30 fires active in the Fort Nelson Fire Zone, and are managing the burns with the resources at hand.Most firefighters who were deployed to Alaska and the Yukon in June to help with efforts there, have since returned, according to Kelsh.last_img read more

Bradley Lowery dies following brave battle with cancer

first_imgThe family’s words read: “My brave boy has went with the angels today 07/07/17 at 13:35, in mammy and daddies arms surrounded by his family. He was our little superhero and put the biggest fight up but he was needed elsewhere.He was the brave young boy who captured the hearts of football fans everywhere.“There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are. Thank you everyone for all your support and kind words. Sleep tight baby boy and fly high with them angels.”The six-year-old Sunderland fan has been battling the rare form of cancer since he was 18 months old but in fact beat the disease once only for it to return in July 2016.His bravery in battling the disease with a huge smile on his face and his passion for football has touched millions around the world.An emotional Jermain Defoe is asked about his friendship with Bradley Lowery a day before the six-year-old Sunderland fan he formed a close friendship with died from cancer.Through his illness and his love of Sunderland, where he appeared as a mascot in the Premier League match against Chelsea in December 2016, he struck up a friendship with Sunderland and England striker Jermain Defoe.He soon began to refer to Defoe as his “best mate” and the England star often visited him in hospital to comfort him through his treatment. Lowery was elated when Defoe was recalled to the England side in March 2017 for a World Cup qualifier against Lithuania and walked on to Wembley with his best mate as his mascot.Defoe this week visited Lowery in hospital to say goodbye and later in a media conference at his new club Bournemouth talked about the friendship with a boy that would “always be in my heart”.“He will always be in my heart for the rest of my life,” he said. “We are there for the family, even going forward. It is difficult. It puts stuff into perspective.“There is not a day that goes past where I do not wake up in the morning and check my phone or think about little Bradley because his love is genuine and I can see it in his eyes. It is special.”A minute’s applause will be held for Bradley ahead of Friday’s match between Sunderland and Bury Football club, with the players and fans paying their respects to the mascot and his family.Throughout his illness, Bradley’s family and friends have raised thousands of pounds to fight neuroblastoma, a rare type of cancer that mostly affects babies and young children, and will now set up a foundation in his name to offer help and support other children and parents facing the disease.-By Sky Sports-0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Bradley Lowery was a huge Sunderland fan and described Jermain Defoe as his ‘best friend’. PHOTO/Daily MailLONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 7 – Bradley Lowery, the six-year-old who captured the hearts of football fans, has died following a brave battle with cancer.Lowery’s family announced on their Facebook fundraising page, on which millions worldwide have followed his battle against neuroblastoma, that their “superhero” had died in the arms of his “heartbroken” family.last_img read more

Exclusive – Arca on Argentina, Messi and facing Germany

first_imgSunderland legend Julio Arca believes Argentina cannot rely solely on Lionel Messi if they are to beat Germany and win the World Cup on Sunday.The Barcelona star has got his country out of jail on numerous occasions in Brazil this summer as he looks to cement his status as one of the world’s greatest ever footballers.Arca joined Adrian Durham and Darren Gough on Drivetime to look ahead to the final and said Messi will need the help of his team-mates if they are to overcome Germany.The former Middlesbrough star added that if the 27-year-old does win the World Cup he will finally be viewed as Argentine legend, Diego Maradona’s equal.last_img read more

Man caught again near White House

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl event“I have intelligence information for the president,” he said, waving his arms in the air. “I’m not afraid of you,” Patterson screamed at the officers who were ordering him to the ground with guns drawn. Patterson eventually kneeled on the ground and was taken into custody shortly before 4 p.m. He cut his hand jumping the fence and was taken to George Washington University hospital for treatment and was to appear in court Monday, Zahren said. Zahren said Patterson was charged with unlawful entry for the last time he jumped the fence, in February. He faces the same charge for Sunday’s incident and also a contempt of court charge for violating judge’s orders to stay away from the White House. WASHINGTON – A screaming intruder made it onto the front lawn of the White House Sunday while President George W. Bush was at home before being apprehended by Secret Service officers. Secret Service spokesman Eric Zahren identified the man as 40-year-old Brian Lee Patterson, whose last known address was in Albuquerque, N.M. Patterson has been caught trying to get onto the White House grounds at least three times before, Zahren said. The bearded man, wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt that said “God Bless America,” jumped the fence outside the White House and ran across the north lawn while repeatedly yelling, “I am a victim of terrorism!” Members of the Secret Service emergency response team, including one holding a barking dog, chased Patterson with their guns drawn and surrounded him near the row of cameras set up for television stand-ups. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
