Shelter for abused women to be constructed in Linden

first_imgA sod-turning exercise in Linden on Thursday has symbolised the respective commencement of construction of a shelter for abused women and two community centres.Social Protection Minister Amna Ally and US Ambassador Sarah-Ann Lynch were among those at the sod-turning exerciseThese projects are being undertaken by the United States Military Services, also referred to as the New Horizons. One of the shelters will be constructed at Amelia’s Ward, while the other will be constructed at Blueberry Hill, Wismar.At the sod-turning exercise on Thursday, US Ambassador Sarah-Ann Lynch noted that this is the third outreach to Guyana by the New Horizons. She noted that the US is committed to building and sustaining relationships with its partner nations.“We look forward to continuing to grow our partnership and our friendship. Just like its previous iterations in 2004 and 2009, which built clinics and schools and provided medical outreaches, this year’s New Horizons’ efforts provide invaluable knowledge and unmatched hands-on experience”, Ambassador Lynch noted.She added that the bilateral nature of the exercise creates a unity of efforts between the two countries to address challenges in the areas of humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.Ambassador Lynch also posited that hundreds of Guyanese have already benefited directly from medical outreaches and construction projects undertaken by New Horizons, and thousands more are to benefit in the years to come.Social Protection Minister Amna Ally related that there is much to celebrate and be grateful for, since the community will, for the first time, have a Women’s Shelter.She noted that the US/Guyana partnership has resulted in positive outcomes for the people of Linden, and she said she is looking forward to future partnerships.The Minister noted that the sod-turning ceremony represents the first act of greater things to come, and it would not have been possible without support of the US Government under the New Horizons project.Linden Mayor Waneka Arrindell has said the introduction of a Women’s Shelter is something that the town would always remember, in that it would bring much needed relief to the Region as a whole.She also expressed hope that the shelter would be able to provide services that would help to reduce issues such as teenage pregnancies and child abuse, and provide skills training and literacy services for youths.New Horizons Commander, Colonel Kenneth Bratland, in an overview, alluded to the importance of the projects.“(For) our exercise, New Horizons will bring over 500 airmen, soldiers, sailors and marines into Guyana between February and September of this year. Our primary purpose is to train US Forces (on) how to plan and conduct humanitarian missions in different and challenging conditions. To ensure our conditions are challenging, the first thing we did was to build a base camp for all our personnel to live in. We did this starting in February, and we finished that in May.“With that completed, we are now moved on to the helping phase of this exercise. Our first focus area is providing medical, dental and veterinary assistance at seven events in 15 locations across Guyana,” he detailed.Five of these events, he noted, will take place at seven locations throughout Linden.He highlighted that the first event concluded at the Port Mourant Hospital in Region Six last month, while the second will conclude today (Friday) at the Linden Hospital Complex.Chief-of-Staff of the Guyana Defence Force, Brigadier Patrick West, has said that, with an apparent increase in domestic violence cases, he is heartened that the shelter for women was conceived and earmarked as a priority project.He said realisation of the shelter signals that the men and women in uniform are there to offer support.“It signals that, as military persons, we are in touch with some of the social ills that plague our society… The Joint Services as a whole is committed to providing assistance through whatever provisions are allowed legally by mandate and otherwise to fight against the scourge of domestic violence. I cannot wait to see the completion of this project, and ensure that it is effectively and efficiently utilised by all,” he declared.last_img read more

Manchester City v Huddersfield Town preview: David Wagner may need a miracle at the Etihad

first_imgBefore you go any further, head on over to the Oddsshark website, find your favourite betting agency and get your account up and running via your credit card. As a brand new customer and with the Premier League season up and running, there should be a wide range of promotions and offers available to you.Where can I win money in this tie?Last week, City picked up where they left off at the back end of last season, and coasted to a 2-0 win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. Now, they play in front of their own fans for the first time this season against a side who did well just to maintain their top flight status last term.Goals from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva capped a wonderful display from Guardiola’s side, while Huddersfield made a disappointing start to the season. The Terriers lost 3-0 on their own patch to Chelsea and are now staring st two defeats on the bounce at the start of this campaign.For there is no getting away from the fact that City are overwhelming favourites for this contest. Looking at the simple bet based solely on the outcome of the game and City are priced at just 1.10 to take all three points, while Huddersfield are all the way out t 26.00 to record what would be a shock win – even a draw is in double figures, at 13.00.This looks like one of those games where City look more than capable of notching up a cricket score and specifics will be important if you want to profit in this one. A 4-0 thrashing in favour of the champions is priced at 8.00, meaning that a US$ bet would lead to a pay out of US$40.Goals would look to be the order of the day here – after all, City have scored in 17 of their last 18 fixtures. Over 2.5 goals in the game is priced at just 1.33, with under 2.5 goals at the much higher 3.40.In addition, Guardiola’s side scored in 18 of their 19 home matches last term. Ironically enough, the one side to stop them finding the back of the net was Huddersfield, who managed to hold the champions to a goalless draw.The odds on that happening again are long, however. To give you an idea of just how unlikely that would be, 0-0 on Sunday between these two is priced far out at 23.00 – that means a US$5 bet would lead to a whopping US$115 pay out.All in all, though, Huddersfield’s away from last term was dire. The Terriers won just three of 19 games on the road and, in all honesty, the vast majority of their fans must be dreading this trip to the Etihad Stadium.You can back Manchester City to win to nil (without Huddersfield scoring a goal) at just 1.57, with other “specials” equally short, such as winning both halves (1.72) and scoring in both halves (1.44). One special might be worth backing is City to be ahead after 10 minutes – you could almost quadruple your money on that outcome, at a price of 3.75.City scored over three goals in 13 of their 19 home games last season and this would look to be a great opportunity to start up that trend for the new campaign. You can back City to win and over 3.5 goals in the game at 1.83.Of course, it remains to be seen who will score those goals. Argentine forward Sergio Aguero is the outright favourite at 1.36 to net during the game, while he is at 3.10 to score either the first or last goal of the game.Brazil forward Gabriel Jesus, who endured a torrid time at the World Cup this past summer, will be keen to get off the mark for his club. The 21 year old is at 1.44 to score at any time, and you can back him at 3.50 to break the deadlock.Premier League round 2 fixtures:Saturday, 18 August(3.25) Cardiff x Newcastle (2.55); draw (3.10)(1.90) Everton x Southampton (4.75); draw (3.50)(2.05) Leicester City x Wolves (3.90); draw (3.50)(1.28) Tottenham x Fulham (12.00); draw (6.00)(2.10) West Ham x Bournemouth (3.70); draw (3.60)(1.80) Chelsea x Arsenal (4.50); draw (4.00)Sunday, 19 August(2.45) Burnley x Watford (3.40); draw (3.10)(1.10) Manchester City x Huddersfield (26.00); draw (13.00)(5.50) Brighton x Manchester United (1.75); draw (3.60)Monday, 20 August (7.50) Crystal Palace x Liverpool (1.44); draw (5.00)0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000In 38 games, there were 32 wins, 106 goals scored and 100 points collected in last season’s Premier League race.

KRAKOW, Poland – Pope Benedict XVI encouraged prayers Friday for the beatification of his predecessor, Pope John Paul II, an eagerly awaited remark on a cause close to the hearts of many Poles. Benedict has referred to John Paul as a great pope, “my beloved predecessor” and quoted from him extensively, but Poles were awaiting word on the beatification. Some even hoped Benedict would announce it during his four-day Poland tour. Thousands of people lined the streets as Benedict rode through Krakow’s central old town, giving him a loud and enthusiastic welcome in the city where the Polish-born John Paul served as archbishop before becoming pope. Outside the archbishop’s residence, where Benedict was spending the night, a crowd of several thousand urged him to come to the window. last_img read more

Could reusable milk bottles be the key to reducing Donegal’s carbon footprint?

first_imgIndependent Cllr Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig has suggested that bringing back glass milk bottles could go a long way towards reducing Donegal’s carbon footprint.A discussion around plastic recycling was to the fore of the Glenties Municipal District’s monthly meeting in Dungloe Public Service Centre.“There was a big discussion around plastic yesterday, with a large contribution from other councillors. The consensus was that our reliance on plastic needs to be reduced dramatically.” Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig says that often, it is left to the consumer to ‘think green’ – but the manufacturers that produce this waste are equally responsible.“Not everything has to come in packets, and not all consumers want things in packets.”“We should be looking at alternatives in relation to milk. What’s wrong with the idea that we go to a shop and we fill up our own jars that we have ourselves instead of this continuous use of plastic?“The average family, especially families with young kids, go through a huge amount of milk. Creameries and other companies need to look at waste production, we’re too reliant on plastic.” The recycling centres in the Glenties Municipal District are currently up for tender for private companies, however Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig believes these centres should be State run.“I’m opposed to it [recycling centres] being outsourced – that our waste becomes profile. I strongly believe that these centres should be organised by Donegal County Council.”Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig has been in touch with Donegal Creameries to pitch the idea and is currently awaiting a response.Could reusable milk bottles be the key to reducing Donegal’s carbon footprint? was last modified: January 17th, 2018 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:bottlesCllr Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuigmilkplasticrecyclelast_img read more

British Council nod to SA publisher

first_img21 February 2006South African Michelle Matthews, publishing manager of women’s imprint Oshun Books, has been named by the British Council as a finalist for the 2006 International Young Publisher of the Year Award. Matthews was selected from thousands of possible international candidates, with the British Council saying she epitomised the award requirement that the winner “not simply have an impressive CV, but the qualities and vision to be a potential leader in their national publishing sector, with an entrepreneurial drive tied to a strong creative ability”.She leaves for the UK on 24 February 2006, joining nine other nominees competing for this prestigious international industry prize at the London Book Fair.The award is a collaboration between the council and the fair, launched in 2004 to celebrate the entrepreneurial and leadership ability of a young person aged 25 to 35, working in the publishing sector in their own country.The award is targeted at transitional and developing economies and celebrates and champions the notion of creative leadership – specifically the need to identify and nurture future leaders of the publishing industry in these markets. The award provides this group with access to London Book Fair as an opportunity for exchanging ideas and trading rights with UK professionals.Oshun BooksMatthews was recruited by Struik Publishers to develop their new women’s imprint. Launching Oshun Books in October 2004, Michelle quickly drew notice as one of the industry’s brightest young stars, excited by and invested in “strong new voices, unexplored niches and new readerships”.By the start of 2006, Oshun Books had published 24 titles – 13 of them by first-time authors. These include journalist Sam Cowen’s bestselling Waiting for Christopher, poet Lebo Mashile’s collection In a Ribbon of Rhythm, Rosie Fiore’s fresh, funny and wise This Year’s Black and, most recently, award-winning playwright Nadia Davids’s At Her Feet.As Oshun’s publishing manager, Matthews commissions titles, develops manuscripts, liaises with authors, manages her publishing programme, works closely with the sales and marketing teams, and manages a team of full-time and freelance staff.Matthews graduated from the University of Cape Town with a distinction in English in 1999. She has worked as an editor and arts reporter at the Mail & Guardian and was the managing editor of SL student magazine – where she “interviewed rock stars, dived with sharks and danced to drum ‘n bass at 4am in Sao Paolo”.Visit the International Young Publisher of the Year website.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

New bridge to boost African trade

first_imgA new bridge that connects Mozambique Tanzania has been unveiled. (Image: Wikipedia) MEDIA CONTACTS • Tanzania National Roads Agency +255 22 2152576 tanroadsq@tanroads.go.tz RELATED ARTICLES • Eassy to go live soon • Frog boom in Tanzania • Light for Africa • New fuel pipeline for Moz and SA • SADC free trade area launchedBongani NkosiThe new Unity Bridge linking Tanzania and Mozambique is set to stimulate economic activity between the two Southern African countries and improve living standards in the region.The facility was opened by Presidents Jakaya Kikwete, of Tanzania, and Mozambique’s Armando Guebuza on 12 May.The 720m-long and 13.5m-wide road bridge runs over the Ruvuma River, enabling goods to be transported more effectively. It will also mean that traders from the neighbouring countries will have easy access to each others’ markets.“This bridge will strengthen our brotherly ties and boost trade between our people. I believe it will yield positive results in the near future, including easing transport and promote development in many areas,” Kikwete said, as Tanzania’s Daily News newspaper reported.Both nations are funding Unity Bridge’s construction bill of about US$30-million (R226-million), part of which has been paid.Kikwete, reported Daily News, said the countries will form joint strategies and programmes to  stimulate trade, investment and economic development.Daily News praised the construction of the bridge as a huge milestone in its editorial. The new development would consolidate political, social, and economic relations between Tanzania and Mozambique, the newspaper commented.“…The edifice must not be allowed to become a white elephant. It should be utilized to the maximum for the benefit of Mozambicans and Tanzanians and the rest of Africa at large.”The two nations must “take full advantage” of the abundant economic opportunities offered by the bridge, said Daily News.It’s expected that it would attract more economic investments mostly into Tanzania’s regions of Mtwara, Lindi and Ruvuma, and Mozambique’s Cape Delgado and Pemba.Although roads leading to the bridge now need to be constructed, a 5km stretch of tarred road has already been laid down from both countries’ sides.Now the Tanzanian government is looking for funds to upgrade and join the road from the village of Mangaka, in the south of the country, to the Unity Bridge.Realising the dream of founding leadersUnity Bridge is a realisation of a vision shared by the countries’ first presidents, the late Julius Nyerere and Samora Machel. They mooted the idea of a bridge across the Ruvuma River in 1975, soon after Mozambique was liberated from Portuguese colonial rule.The idea lingered for about three decades until Joaquim Chissano and Benjamin Mkapa, the respective former presidents of Mozambique and Tanzania, decided to set aside funds from their budgets to construct the bridge.“These leaders took bold decisions by allocating our scarce resources to the project. It was not an easy decision to take up the project and implementing it,” Kikwete said at the ceremony.Construction began earnestly in January 2005 under the Asian firm M/S China Geo Engineering Corporation.One-stop border postA one-stop border post will be established on the bridge to facilitate the flow of people and goods between the two countries, enabling businesses to trade with minimal hindrance.The border facility will also enhance security and immigration controls between the countries. Security personnel operating in the post will include employees of the Tanzania Revenue Authority.last_img read more

Google Adds Tools to Web Developer Suite

first_imgThere’s something very straight-forward about Google’s branding. It doesn’t complicate the experience with flowery user design or site mascots. It offers exactly the type of experience you’d expect to receive from a company that showcases its name in mostly primary colors. However, when Google announced today’s additions to the “Google Services for Websites” suite, it took us a minute to remember what the company blog post was referencing. In a world where even browser names conjure images of animals or finely tuned cars, the company’s simply named “Google Services for Websites” is extremely useful but often easy to forget. In late March, Google launched AdSense, Custom Site Search and Webmaster Tools as the Google Services for Websites suite. The launch was meant to empower new web developers and increase the range of tools available to web masters and web hosts. And as of today, that service suite has increased with the addition of Web Elements, Page Speed and Tips for Hosters. Web Elements: This service allows users to modify, copy and paste snippets of code into their websites. This is particularly useful for nonprofit organizations and other groups who do not have a full-time dedicated webmaster. Rather than updating html fields for calendars, events and testimonials, site owners simply drop in a code snippet and the site automatically updates itself from tools like Google Calendar and Google Docs. As well, instead of having to update every testimonial emailed to the group, the organization can simply paste in a conversation element or comment bar titled “Testimonials”.Page Speed: Page Speed is an open-source Firefox / Firebug extension that helps web developers optimize site performance and reduce code redundancies. Similar to Yahoo’s YSlow, the tool points out all your mistakes and helps you fix them. Think of it as constructive web parenting. Tips for Web Hosters: Tips for Web Hosters offers advice on account management, analytics, translation tools, server configurations and Ad Sense. If you’re a large-scale web host and you’d like to take advantage of the “Google Services for Websites” program, apply here.
