Jordan challenges Jagdeo on long-term development plans

Posted on by

first_imgFinance Minister Winston Jordan called on Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo to tell the people where his long-term development plan for Guyana was, when the PPP/C served 23 years as the Government.Jagdeo had stated that in light of the failing economy, the Government has not introduced any long- or short-term plan. He said the APNU/AFC Administration needs to address the waning situation where the economy is in a nose-dive for the worse, and to stop denying the situation.Finance MinisterWinston JordanHe explained that the coalition has been in government for one year and three month but it has failed to both publicise and/or implement any short- or long-term plans which would build and strengthen Guyana’s economy.Jordan told the media on Monday: “We don’t expect him to say the Government is doing anything perfect…his job is to oppose what we are doing.”He challenged reporters to probe Jagdeo about whether billions pumped into the economy in the last 23 years was evident with the state of the country pre-election 2015.He argued that the previous Administration never produced a long-term development plan in the country.Jagdeo had stated that government should define its long-term goal for the country, and outline where it is going to be in five/ten years’ time, and the policy measures it will need to implement to get there.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo“There’s no long-term plan, there’s no short-term plan, this government acts capriciously,” Jagdeo argued and said that there are no programmes or policies to define the administration’s strategy but stressed that with sound policies the challenges present in today’s economy could be overcome.The Opposition Leader pointed out that the APNU/AFC coalition should not depend mostly on the profits of oil in Guyana to help stabilise and boost the economy: “We are enjoying a period of relative calm and basically good prices but these are going to turn against us again…prices are going to climb back in the future for fossil fuel…We have no plan, and we are not even making short-term investment plans,” he also explained.last_img read more

Collaborative efforts lead to reduced infant mortality, morbidity – decreased from 35% to…

Posted on by

first_imgFrom left to right: Representatives from the Georgetown Public Hospital, Dr Winsome Scott and Dr George Norton (in middle), and senior representatives from Laparkan Shipping Limited GuyanaDoctors and nurses working in paediatric units at public health facilities have been targeted in a series of training sessions to further reduce the rates of infant mortality and morbidity.According to a release from the Government Information Agency (GINA), the healthcare professionals have been, and continue to be, trained in the field through a number of pilot programmes, and collaborative efforts with international organisationsHead of the Paediatrics Department of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), Dr Clive Bowman said, “In 2011, residency training was started in Guyana and to date, 10 paediatricians have been trained… We also have nine residents who are currently in training. We recognise that we cannot train doctors and don’t have trained nurses, so in 2013 again, through the initiative of the Guyana Help The Kids (GHTK), Dr Narendra Singh and the Nationwide Children Hospital, we started our neonatal intensive care training, training nurses who are specially equipped to care for very sick newborn babies.”Dr Clive Bowman, head of Paediatrics Department, Georgetown Public HospitalPublic Health Minister, Dr George Norton, presents a plaque to President of Guyana Help The Kids (GHTK) Guyana Chapter, Dr Winsome ScottDr Bowman said to date, 36 nurses have completed that training, and there were 25 others in training.GPHC’s Paediatrics Department has been collaborating with overseas-based institutions, such as the Pan-American Health Organisation (PAHO), University of Toronto, University of Calgary, the University of Buffalo, among others, in realising the training opportunities.Dr Bowman further stated that the objective of the collaborative efforts with international counterparts was to ensure that “we can provide top quality care to paediatric patients in Guyana, and this involves training, improvement of the physical structure and provision of equipment”.The training, which the doctors and nurses are undergoing, will further be decentralised into sub-specialty areas, such as echocardiography, spirometry, paediatric haematology/oncology, paediatric critical care, paediatric emergency medicine and neonatology. A neonatology division equipped with the requisite staff will also be set up to give care to the ill or premature newborn infant.“As we continue training, we are also looking at boosting the manpower capability of our department, and also do some restructuring of the department so that we can provide the care necessary,” Dr Bowman further explainedBy the end of 2016, GPHC’s paediatric department is expected to have a complement of 12 paediatricians, who will work to provide efficient and effective healthcare, thereby greatly reducing infant morbidity and mortality, the release added.Doctors of the department have also been part of a pilot programme in collaboration with the Guyana Bank for Trade and Industry (GBTI). The programme, Dr Bowman said, is funded at a cost of US$38,000 and has seen more than 600 babies and mothers being screened for hypothyroidism and sickle cell disease.The ongoing training in the different areas of paediatrics will not only benefit doctors from the GPHC, but those from all major regional hospitals, including New Amsterdam, Suddie, West Demerara, Linden and Bartica.Over the years, the GHTK has played an important role in contributing to the decrease in neonatal and infant mortality in developing countries, particularly in Guyana.The GHTK secured a donation from the Humber River Hospital in Canada for paediatric and maternity units at regional health facilities across the country. Humber River Hospital donated three infant incubators, 11 infant warmers, two infant warmer monitors, two infant ventilators, 11 foetal monitors, nine phototherapy lights, 28 basinets, 13 delivery patient beds, and two paediatric scales.The items were handed over to Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton, who highlighted that with the GHTK’s contributions over the years, as of September 2015, the infant mortality and morbidity rates have decreased from 35 per cent to 7 per cent.Dr Winsome Scott, President of the GHTK Guyana Chapter, has pledged the organisation’s continued support to Guyana on reducing neonatal morbidity rates.last_img read more

NEC Absorbs UP in Liberty Party’s Case

Posted on by

first_imgGiven the enormity of the task at hand measured against time constraints, NEC claims that it has already cleaned up 85% of the FRR. David S. Menjor and Hannah N. GeterminahThe Board of Commissioners (BOC) of the National Elections Commission (NEC) late yesterday granted the Unity Party (UP) an opportunity to serve as an intervening party of the alleged electoral fraud as claimed by the opposition Liberty Party (LP) before its hearing office.It may be recalled that Cllr. Muana S. Ville, NEC Chief Hearing Officer on October 31, ruled against UP’s motion to intervene.Cllr. Ville cited the late arrival of UP’s legal team to plead on behalf of their client in the case as a shortcoming, which warranted the dismissal of the party’s request.After the ruling, UP took an exception with the hearing officer and appealed to the BOC requesting for a re-look into its case.The BOC, therefore, took advantage of yesterday’s afternoon period and looked into the case and handed down its ruling, after listening to arguments from lawyers representing the Commission and the Unity Party.NEC Commissioner Jonathan Weedor, who read the ruling said, “After listening to both the respondent and defense counsels as well as taking into consideration the ruling handed down by Cllr. Ville, the BOC has overturned the hearing officer’s ruling and grants UP to be a part of the LP’s case as requested.”He noted that the hearing officer should have considered civil procedures law sections 5.6 and 6.1 instead of Article 83 (C) alone, to deny a party from intervening in a case of interest to it.Sections 5.6 and 6.1 of the Civil Proceedings law state that intervention is a matter of discretion and interest of related factors connected to a necessary party which also becomes a matter of right.Article 83 states that “Voting for the President, Vice-President, members of the Senate and members of the House of Representatives shall be conducted throughout the Republic on the second Tuesday in October of each election year.“All elections of public officers shall be determined by an absolute majority of the votes cast. If no candidate obtains an absolute majority in the first ballot, a second ballot shall be conducted on the second Tuesday following. The two candidates who received the greatest numbers of votes on the first ballot shall be designated to participate in the runoff election.“The returns of the elections shall be declared by the Elections Commission not later than fifteen days after the casting of ballots. Any party or candidate who complains about the manner in which the elections were conducted or who challenges the results thereof shall have the right to file a complaint with the Elections Commission. Such complaint must be filed not later than seven days after the announcement of the results of the elections.“The Elections Commission shall, within 30 days of receipt of the complaint, conduct an impartial investigation and render a decision which may involve a dismissal of the complaint or a nullification of the election of a candidate. Any political party or independent candidate affected by such decision shall not later than seven days appeal against it to the Supreme Court.“The Elections Commission shall within seven days of receipt of the notice of appeal; forward all the records in the case to the Supreme Court, which not later than seven days thereafter, shall hear and make its determination. If the Supreme Court nullifies or sustains the nullification of the election of any candidate, for whatever reasons, the Elections Commission shall within 60 days of the decision of the Court conduct new elections to fill the vacancy. If the court sustains the election of a candidate, the Elections Commission shall act to effectuate the mandate of the Court.”Cllr. Varney Sherman, leading the UP’s legal team, argued earlier that the NEC has no political injury to sustain should UP be given the permission to intervene in an election case, particularly so when it is a necessary party.Attorney Cephas Tee Wia, representing Cllr. Musa Dean, head of the NEC’s legal team, said the hearing officer’s ruling was legal and should be held as provided.Liberty Party early yesterday got a nod when the Supreme Court ruled by making the temporary stay order permanent until NEC looks into their complaint filed before it.Meanwhile, hearing into the LP’s case is expected to kick off today at 1 p.m. at the Commission’s headquarters in Monrovia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

TV Guide publisher’s quarterly profit tops expectations

Posted on by

first_img“I believe this year is the appropriate time to devote resources to a new TV Guide brand marketing initiative,” he said.

Gemstar-TV Guide International Inc., publisher of the weekly TV Guide magazine, said Wednesday its fourth-quarter earnings more than doubled, driven by higher advertising and interactive revenue. Net income rose to $31.8 million, or 7 cents per share, from $12.7 million, or 3 cents per share, in the year-ago period, the company said. Revenue rose by 12 percent to $145 million from $129.4 million a year ago. Analysts polled by Thomson Financial expected profit of 4 cents per share on revenue of $140.7 million. The company also licenses searchable program-guide technology to cable and satellite TV companies and television makers. “We had a very productive fourth quarter, which closed out a solid year for the company,” CEO Richard Battista said during a conference call with Wall Street analysts. Revenue for the company’s cable and satellite division increased to $80.7 million during the quarter. Publishing sales increased to $41.2 million, while the company’s consumer electronics unit posted $23 million in sales.

Britney Spears – Kevin Federline happy with results of custody battle

Posted on by

first_imgAttorneys for Britney Spears and Kevin Federline both said they were happy with results of a closed-door hearing on child custody today, but revealed little about what went on. A Sept. 17 hearing is already scheduled in the case, and Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon set another hearing for sometime in November — both dealing with Federline’s request for more custody time with the couple’s two sons, Federline’s lawyer, Mark V. Kaplan, said in a brief news conference outside the courthouse. The November hearing — Kaplan did not give a specific date — was scheduled to give both sides more time to gather information in preparation for the upcoming custody fight, Kaplan said. Kaplan is seeking the depositions of several people in the Spears camp, including the pop singer’s assistant, former bodyguard, former manager and former nanny. Spears, 25, and Federline are the parents of Sean Preston, who turns 2 on Sept. 14, and Jayden James, who will be 1 on Sept. 12. The couple were divorced July 30. Kaplan said Federline, 29, wants the half-and-half child-custody arrangement changed, because the two boys are “isolated from risks” when they are with his client. In the interim, both Federline and Spears will continue to have equal custody time with the boys, Kaplan said. But he confirmed Federline wants additional custody privileges. “He wants as much custody time as he can get,” Kaplan said, adding that he was pleased with today’s developments. Just before Gordon closed the hearing, Spears’ lawyer, Laura A. Wasser, said she was told by the county Department of Children and Family Services that they had completed an investigation into custody matters in the case. The probe dealt with whether the boys were receiving proper dental hygiene while in Spears’ care, according to the celebrity Web site TMZ.com. Before the hearing began, Gordon said a lawyer from the County Counsel’s Office, representing the DCFS, was scheduled to appear, but had not shown up. The hearing went forward without the DCFS attorney. Wasser said later that the DCFS lawyer’s presence was not needed. “I don’t think there was anything for them to appear about,” Wasser said. Asked whether the closed hearing dealt with positive or negative news for Spears, Wasser replied, “It went very well.” Kaplan would not confirm whether Wasser’s statement about the DCFS investigation being complete is accurate. “I don’t know if that’s true, I don’t know if that’s untrue,” Kaplan said. Kaplan and Wasser both said they wanted to make permanent an order Gordon issued July 30 sealing the child custody and support records. Gordon has scheduled a hearing for Sept. 14 to give a lawyer for People magazine and NBC4 television the chance to argue that at least some of the documents should be made public. Kaplan denied reports that Federline is more concerned about increasing his spousal support than time with his boys. “This has nothing to do with money,” he said. “It never has.” Spears filed papers Nov. 6 to end her two-year marriage to dancer and fledgling rapper Federline, citing irreconcilable differences. Spears’ court papers stated that she and Federline separated Nov. 5, the same day she showed off her slimmed-down, post-baby figure on David Letterman’s talk show. Spears checked into an addiction treatment center in February. About that time, Federline asked for an emergency hearing regarding custody of the boys, but later canceled it. The couple wed Oct. 6, 2004. The marriage was Spears’ second, coming eight months after she ended a 55-hour Las Vegas union to a childhood friend. The singer, known for such hits as “Baby One More Time,” “Oops …I Did It Again” and “Toxic,” first found fame as a member of “The New Mickey Mouse Club” in the 1990s.

NASA seeking base in Palmdale

Posted on by

first_imgThe nation’s largest flying observatory and other aircraft used by NASA for scientific experiments may find a new home at Palmdale Airport under a proposal set for consideration today by the Los Angeles Airport Commission. NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center hopes to expand its operations at Edwards Air Force Base to the Antelope Valley airport, which could eventually be home to the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, a 747 jetliner armed with a giant telescope that gazes at the solar system. Modified versions of the ER-2, Gulfstream III and DC-8 jetliners would also be housed at the airport to conduct Earth and environmental studies, according to NASA officials. The proposed 20-year lease would require NASA to pay more than $1.4 million annually to rent Hangar 703, a 422,000-square-foot building that once served as a home to Rockwell International and the B-1 bomber aircraft, according to a report submitted by Los Angeles World Airports, the agency that operates Palmdale Airport. The aging hangar has stood vacant since 2003, except when scenes from the movies “The Terminal” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” were shot there, said Paul Haney, LAWA’s deputy executive director for airports and security. LAWA has spent four years looking for a new tenant to take Rockwell’s spot at Palmdale Airport, and took nearly a year to hammer out a deal with NASA, according to Alan Brown, a spokesman for the Dryden Flight Research Center. NASA officials in Washington, D.C., have already signed off on the tentative agreement, which calls on the agency to make about $6.5 million worth of renovations to the hangar, including new laboratories and technical upgrades. In return, LAWA will spend about $4 million on a new roof for the building. The extra space, according to Brown, will more than double the hangar space currently available to NASA at Edwards Air Force Base. “LAWA is very interested in getting this facility utilized and we have a need that isn’t being met at Edwards, so this will be a win-win situation,” Brown said. “We’re very excited to get this project moving.” The new facility would also serve as a convenience to visiting scientists, who would travel only a few miles from their Palmdale hotel rooms to the airport, rather than trekking about 50 miles up to Edwards Air Force Base, Brown said. “Let’s face it, we’re out in the boonies right now, so that involves a lot of commuting for scientists who are in town to conduct experiments,” he said. “This will be much more convenient and beneficial to everyone involved.” art.marroquin@dailybreeze.com (310) 543-6674160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
