Untimely ‘death announcement’ of our sugar industry

first_imgDear Editor,I believe that a section of the media in an editorial prematurely announced the death knell of Guyana’s sugar industry.The focus of the editorial was on raw/bulk sugar and the price for same in the world market. It conveniently, perhaps deliberately, ignored the increasing demand for ‘value-added’ sugar and the premium prices payable for refined, customer-oriented packaged sugar as well as the possibilities available in the ‘preferential’ Caricom countries for market-driven demand, production and distribution.It would be enlightening to hear the ‘unvarnished’ truths from GuySuCo (as opposed to the apparent bias of political operatives). Furthermore, why are the powers-that-be continuing to ignore the studied recommendations of the CoI into the sugar industry?Sincerely,Nowrang Persaudlast_img read more

YPP Orientates 22 new Graduates

first_imgYPP’s mentors and supervisors posed at the event. The Young Professionals Program (YPP) on Friday, July 6, orientated 22 professionals at an elaborate ceremony in Monrovia. The YPP is a recruitment initiative for talented, highly qualified professionals to start a career as an international civil servant with the United Nations Secretariat. It is the most competitive initiative for youth’s capacity development for future leadership in the civil service.The 22 members were inducted by Sonjai Reynolds-Cooper, who spoke of the rigorous process of recruitment.Its Executive Director, Hh K. Zaizay has called for a strengthening of the public service. Zaizay stressed the need for partners to provide more funding to expand the program in rural areas.His statement was contained in a remark he made on Friday at the 8th mentors and supervisors’ orientation event held at a resort in Monrovia.YPP recruits, trains and prepares promising and talented Liberian college graduates for future public service.Zaizay said there is need for more funding, because inadequate funding for the program has over the years hindered its expansion, especially in the rural areas.“We are funded by private donors and the government, but in the last budget year, we received 20 percent of our budget, constraining us financially,” he said.“We recruit our trainees for the two-year fellowship, a laptop is provided; they receive a gross salary of US$451; we put them on health benefits and train them for two years. At the end of the two-year service, the government absorbs them,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Philippines mudslide death toll reaches 1800

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! GUINSAUGON, Philippines (AP) — Rescue workers held little hope Saturday of finding survivors from a devastating landslide, saying this farming village was swallowed whole by a wall of mud and boulders. Lt. Col. Raul Farnacio, the highest-ranking military officer at the scene of Friday’s disaster, estimated the death toll at about 1,800 – nearly every man, woman and child who lived in Guinsaugon. “Out of a population of 1,857, we have 57 survivors and 19 bodies,” a grim Farnacio said as search efforts resumed Saturday in a drenching rain and high winds that made the task even more miserable. “We presume that more or less that 1,800 are feared dead.” Soldiers were being shuttled to the disaster zone in the shovels of bulldozers that carried them across a shallow stream. With the mud estimated to be 30 feet deep at some points, they were given sketches of the village so they could figure out approximately where the houses used to be. Farnacio said the troops were digging only where they saw clear evidence of bodies because of the danger that the soft, unstable mud could shift and claim new victims. “We can only focus on the surface,” he said. “We cannot go too deep.” Low clouds hung over the area, obscuring the mountain that disintegrated Friday morning after two weeks of heavy rains, covering the village’s 375 homes and elementary school. Rescue workers trudged slowly through the sludge, stretchers and ambulances waiting for survivors or the bodies of victims.last_img read more

EAMON MCGEE PUTS HIS BROTHER BACK IN HIS BOX WITH TWITTER ADMISSION

first_imgEamon McGee was unlucky to miss out on an All-Star, but seems to be taking it well, after his cheeky jibe at brother Neil.Eamon McGee seems to be taking the disappointment of missing out on an All-Star quite well, after telling his followers on Twitter, that he has one title Neil can never get his hands on.McGee was incredibly unlucky to miss out an All-Star award, after another sensational campaign in the heart of Donegal’s defence.McGee should have got one in 2012 too, he enjoyed a great season and was typically consistent throughout the campaign. For many Donegal supporters he was the man-of-the-match against Mayo in the All-Ireland final, but unfortunately the accolade hasn’t been awarded to him.However, his brother Neil also had a superb campaign, and he was rewarded for that, with his third All-Star in just four years for his incredible and consistent performances over the last number of years.But before Neil can start bragging, he was reminded of the title he lost to his older sibling.McGee tweeted, “I once beat our Neil at a sprint in the community games at u12’s, the trophy is still there on the mantle-piece, he now has three all stars though.” EAMON MCGEE PUTS HIS BROTHER BACK IN HIS BOX WITH TWITTER ADMISSION was last modified: October 23rd, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:All-Star AwardsdonegalEamonn McGeeGAAnewsSportlast_img read more
