Valiant has no record of doing anything other than GIPEX

first_imgDear Editor,Wesley Kirton displays naiveté when he writes that the PPP should not protest the GIPEX and instead seek a speaking role at the event. Is Mr Kirton aware that he is asking the PPP to participate in an event that is tainted by the appearance of corruption? Attendance by the PPP will give legitimacy to an event set to rake in millions of US dollars from the local treasury and others by way of exorbitant delegate and exhibitor fees (US$ 2000-12000).The lucrative exclusive ‘rights’ to host the Official Guyana International Petroleum Business Summit and Exhibition (GIPEX-2019) have been granted to Valiant Business Media. Communications about GIPEX are handled by Alena Trotman, who is listed as the company’s Business Development Officer. With 600 delegates and 200 plus exhibitors, this London-based company is set to earn US$3.5 million from this single event.Valiant is represented by Shariq AbdulHai, who purports to be the ‘Managing’ Director. He, in fact, is the only Director. Valiant has assets of US$364,000 and debt of US$96,000. Valiant has no record of doing anything other than GIPEX.Valiant was formerly known as Brazen London Limited and has no record of business activity in its one month of existence before the name change. Is Valiant a shell company now activated to give legitimacy of a ‘London-based’ title to nepotism and corruption?When one adds the fact that Ms Alena Trotman is the daughter of Raphael Trotman, Hon Minister of Natural Resources, and that Valiant has no other business of note and the acquisition of the exclusive rights was without use of the tender process, then, attendance by any person or entity can be seen as an act of collusion with corrupt actors.Unless plausible explanations are offered and evidence of Valiant’s merit is provided, this event can be seen as nothing more than another attempt to gyp the Guyanese coffers. GYP-EX.Respectfully,Robin Singhlast_img read more

Rams put forth the effort, 9-5

first_img“It was a matter of effort,” Temple City’s Roth said. “That was the difference in the game. The girls came out and played harder in the second half.” After the Rams jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first two minutes, it appeared Temple City eased up on its pressure. That’s when the Dons (21-10) put the clamps on the Rams and held them scoreless from the 5:29 mark in the first period until 3:29 into the second quarter. During that stretch, Cerritos scored three goals and briefly took a 3-2 advantage on an Alodie Gaerlan’s goal with 4:17 left in the second quarter. “Since day one, I told the girls that they need to score,” Roth said. “After getting shut out for a while, they finally responded.” PASADENA – Having been shut out for nearly 10 minutes, Temple City High girls water polo coach Adam Roth challenged his squad to pick up their intensity in Thursday’s CIF-SS Division III first-round playoff game at Pasadena City College. The Rio Hondo League champs responded to their coach’s call by shutting out visiting Cerritos over the next 14:55 en route to a 9-5 win. Temple City fired back with a Shannon “Cookie” Walsh goal with 3:29 left in the second quarter to tie the game at 3-3 heading into the half. While the Cerritos’ offense struggled in the third, the Rams kept attacking. Walsh added three goals while teammate Jazmin Cardenas contributed another to give Temple City a 7-3 lead heading into the fourth quarter. “We just woke up,” Walsh said of Temple City’s offense. “Sometimes it just takes us a while to play together. “Once we started communicating and talking to each other, we were fine.” The Rams went on a 7-0 run that was capped on Jenn Marshall’s goal off a Walsh assist with 4:05 left in the game that gave Temple City a 9-3 lead. After Gaerlan’s goal in the second period, the Dons did not score again until the 3:22 mark in the fourth quarter. However, by that point, the game already was in hand. “Our defense played much better in the second half,” Marshall said. “I think we wanted it more than Cerritos.” Walsh out-scored Cerritos single-handedly with a game-high six goals. Temple City goalie Carol Li also turned in a solid effort with five saves. Cerritos goalie Melissa Nichols led the saves category with eight. “I’m really looking forward to playing \ again,” she said. “This time the game’s going to be a lot better.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Gardaí have already mounted extra patrols and there are plans to meet with the Pobal ar Áire – Community Alert committee locally to develop a community safety campaign.A spokesman said for this campaign to succeed it is essential that as many local people as possible stand up and say no to the ongoing anti-social behaviour and intimidation within our community and get involved in this campaign.If you are concerned about anti-social behaviour in your area, or would like to come along to the next Community Safety meeting ring Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig 086 884 5476.

DD Gardening: Why you must grow chives in your garden

first_imgThis year you must plant some chives in your garden, you must. Chives are a wonderful addition to the garden as apart from producing summer flowers, they’re incredibly easy to grow, the foliage is lush and plentiful, they’re low growing and all parts of the plant are edible. They really are the perfect garden plant!by Gareth Austin Advertisement Chives do best in any good fertile soil, from soil to partial shade. Ideal for growing in pots and containers close to the home, this way you can simply pop out to get handfuls of fresh chives for cooking or close to the house the many butterflies which visit the flowers can be more readily admired.Chives also make for a wonderful informal hedge when used as a path edging or a low growing border edging. The grass-like foliage spilling out from the borders with the upright flower heads during the summer.Your chives will double in size every year, do lifting and splitting the clumps in March becomes almost a yearly affair for many gardeners, so you’ll always have more to replant around the garden but also to give away to friends and family.The foliage is widely used and most cooks will be familiar with this, but for me it’s the flowers which hold the best flavour, a sweet & sharp oniony flavour. Advertisement So do pick these flowers and use them liberally in salad garnishes and for decoration throughout the summer – if you don’t pick the flowers the plant will go on to produce seeds – this energy drain will reduce the amount of fresh foliage the plant produces.So it’s best to pick and enjoy the flowers as they open, this management will get you more foliage and a further flush of flowers.I’ve always like the name ‘Old Woman’s Onions’ given to Chives, this name comes about as a result of being able to continue pick and use the chive foliage as a substitute for spring onions, so instead of growing/buying scallions you can just pick and chop the chive foliage.Regarding feeding, a fistful of the Viano Organic Plant Food in the Spring, followed up with another in mid-summer will keep your plants growing strongly and you’ll be able to enjoy lots of harvesting from your chives.So you need to get out now and plant some chives in your garden…just look in the Herb section of the garden centres.

The underlying concern of Jon Gruden’s trade of Amari Cooper to the Cowboys

first_imgCLICK HERE if you are having a problem viewing the photos on a mobile deviceLast week, Jon Gruden was incensed that someone — anyone — would even suggest that he is tanking his first season as Raiders’ head coach and de-facto general manager.“We aren’t tanking anything. I hear the hatred out there,” Gruden said. “We are not getting up at 4 o’clock in the morning to tank it.

GPS-enabled vehicles to transport EVMs in M.P.

first_imgThe vehicles used for transporting Electronic Voting Machines in the Lok Sabha election in Madhya Pradesh will be installed with GPS [Global Positioning System].“GPS will be installed on vehicles to be used for transporting EVMs in the Lok Sabha election in the State. Similarly, control rooms will be set up in each district headquarters for tracking the vehicles,” Chief Electoral Officer V.L. Kanta Rao said.During the elections, GPS will also be installed in vehicles to be used for transporting polling teams to the booths, transporting of reserve EVMs in vehicles of Sector Magistrate on the voting day and the for transporting the reserve machines from districts to State-level warehouse after polling, to obtain their locations, said an official.During the 2018 Assembly elections in the State, late arrival of EVMs at the collection centre in Sagar district has snowballed into a major controversy with the Congress suspecting a foul play by the BJP.Concerned over tampering with the EVMs, the Congress has deployed party workers outside strong rooms at several places across the State.The office of the State Election Commission received 3,715 complaints between January 1 and March 22, of which 3,073 have already been resolved.For prompt and effective redressal of complaints related to the Lok Sabha polls, a cVIGIL app (Gold Version) has also been developed, the official added.last_img read more
