AFC Executive resigns from party

first_img…sighting corruption at top levelExecutive Member of the Alliance For Change (AFC) Gladwin Abdulla has resigned from the party sighting corrupting as his reason for leaving.Abdulla, who operated out of Berbice, in a release to the media on Thursday said he has officially tendered his resignation with immediate effect.“The reason is centred mainly on the many corruption charges being levelled against officials and members of the AFC and their penchant for attacking members who are honest and hardworking,” Abdulla said in a release.Abdulla claimed that he was a dedicated and committed member of the AFC butAFC Executive Member Gladwin Abdullamistakenly thought that the coalition was the best solution to have ever happened to Guyana since ‘change’ will pervade the land and the ‘good life’ will enter the homes of the impoverished.He also said he was of the view that with the coalition he was expecting that corruption would have become a distant memory but sadly, it has improved significantly.“I saw through the façade of pretensions and hypocrisy peddled by the AFC Ministers and Party officials. The various Ministers who visited Region Six (East Berbice/Corentyne) would often compliment me for the great work I was doing both for the Party and the residents in Region Six.”The now former AFC official in his release supported claims made in the past on several occasions that there is a high level of corruption at the Public Infrastructure Ministry involving top ranking officials.“The proverbial straw which finally broke the camel’s back was the $120 million road slashing contract which was awarded to mostly AFC members and officials. But later I came face to face with undeniable proof of corruption. I was asked to accompany an official from the Ministry of Public Infrastructure to a well-known contractor’s home where he asked the contractor for seven per cent kickback on a contract he will get for him. When the contractor refused him, he said that the official then told the contractor that he was sent by the subject Minister. The contractor again refused and we hastily leave. I was highly embarrassed by this open display of corruption,” Abdulla said.It was previously reported that several contractors connected to the AFC who were awarded contracts to slash the road shoulders in Region Six were issued without tenders. Nevertheless, Abdulla admitted that he was issued with one of those $15 million contracts.“This Ministry of Public Infrastructure official had given me a contract to slash the Corentyne road sides but I gave it back since I could not afford to pay 10 per cent kickback. That official has since been doing that contractual work.”“The AFC members who were given the $120 million road slashing contract do not even have the financial resources to do the work and I had to act as a guarantor for a line of credit for them with two businessmen to purchase slashers, gas and oil among other items…”, the angered AFC member stated.In addition, Abdulla related that some AFC officials who are holding ministerial positions are involved in corruption and has been attacking other party members who speak out against corruption.last_img read more

Govt forcing LGC to become dysfunctional – former Minister

first_img…says it’s an injustice against working classBy Rupa SeenaraineFormer Local Government Minister, Ganga Persaud has placed the blame for the chaos at the Local Government Commission squarely at the feet of Communities Minister, Ronald Bulkan, which, he noted, has been stymied due to the withholding of funds for its operations.During an interview with Guyana Times on Monday, Persaud noted that prior to the budget hearings, the Communities Minister was supposed to submit pertinent documentation, which would recognise the agency as a constitutional body. However, this was never executed and the organisation remained under the Ministry.Former Local Government Minister Ganga Persaud“The Local Government Commission is a constitutional agency. However, there was need for the necessary documentation to be presented by the Ministry of Communities so that it could be recognised as independent of the Ministry. That didn’t happen. The budget was presented and the Minister of Finance in his wisdom reduced the allocation to that agency but the agency received an allocation which was approved by Parliament,” he said.He added that there were high hopes on the part of the coalition Government that the Commission would have functioned as it was designed to, but this is not the reality. Questioning where the fault lies, he pointed towards the leadership of the Minister since Parliament is a legislature which cannot make such missteps.“The Local Government Commission promised a lot according to the Government and expectations were extremely high. Unfortunately, all those expectations have resulted in zero benefit and the only thing that came out of that process is frustration and uncertainty. The performance of that agency is seemingly stymied by the Ministry and one has to hold the Minister accountable. Where does the fault lie? Certainly, it cannot be the Parliament. It has to be the Administration, the de facto Government and more specifically, at the feet of the Minister,” the former Minister stated.StymiedCommunities Minister Ronald BulkanNow that a reduced budgetary allocation was presented to the Commission, instead of the budget they requested, their work is being stymied due to lack of finances and moreover, staffers have been unpaid for their months of service.“If this Government can react to its Commission and the 27 staff members that it has done, then I think it is really unjust. It is a travesty and an injustice against the working people of this country. It is a crime against humanity.”According to Persaud, this move is aimed at leaving the Commission with no other option but to relinquish its responsibilities to the Ministry; another way for Government to take control of local democratic organs. All entities under the Commission are also deprived of payments for this time.“There must be a compelling reason for the Government to act in the manner in which it has acted. For me, the reason why this Government has acted in this manner is to force the Commission to become dysfunctional. When that happens, the Minister then retains all the function of the Commission. Here is a case that democracy, transparency and accountability is paying a heavy price for political advantage. The Government is seeking to manipulate the work of the Local Government Commission and what is happening in Local Government,” said Persaud.Persaud said to rectify this issue, the budgetary allocations must first be released to the Commission by the Permanent Secretary of the Commission, Emil McGarrell, since these monies were allocated during the budget. Adding to that, the Commission must be duly established to function as any other constitutional body.“The Permanent Secretary needs to sign off on the request by the Commission so [the Commission] can continue to do what they have to do. The budget allocations that were approved by Parliament needs to be released forthwith. In order to avoid a recurrent of this incident, we need to move this Local Government Commission from the present schedule that it is on and place it on the schedule in which all the other statutory entities has in place.”According to Chairman of the LGC, Mortimer Mingo, McGarrell said that the 2019 budget of the Commission for salaries was not in agreement with that of public service workers, hence he would not sign off for payments. Persaud related that this was not an excuse since employees of other commissions are not being paid with accordance to a public service scheme.last_img read more

UEFA introduce fourth extra-time sub for next season

first_img0Shares0000Philippe Coutinho is unable to play for Barcelona in this season’s Champions League, but those rules are set to change next term © AFP/File / STRINGERLAUSANNE, Switzerland, Mar 27 – Teams will be allowed to make a fourth substitution in Champions League and Europa League matches that go to extra-time from next season, UEFA announced on Tuesday amid other changes.The fourth sub rule would be available in knockout-stage games and will also be applied by FIFA at this year’s World Cup in Russia, having previously been used for the 2016 Rio Olympics. UEFA has also changed the rules regarding cup-tied players, with January signings set to be able to play for their new clubs in European competitions even if they have already featured for another team.For example, Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho has been unable to play in this year’s Champions League knockout stage after joining from Liverpool in January, but under the new rules, players in the same situation next season will not be cup-tied.UEFA said that each team can add three new players to their squads for the knockout rounds “without any restrictions”.Teams in the Champions League, Europa League and Super Cup finals will also be able to name 12 substitutes instead of seven.The kick-off times for the Champions League have been changed from the traditional 1945 GMT slot to 2000 GMT, with group-stage matchdays to have two games played at 1755 GMT in an apparent attempt to maximise income from television rights.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Dungloe Community Group Housing project approved to go to tender

first_imgDeputy Pat the Cope Gallagher  has welcomed the sanctioning of the Dungloe Community Housing project to proceed to tender stage. The Department of Housing funded project for Community Group Houses will consist of 3 housing units of 4 individual self-contained bedrooms at Fair Hill Dungloe. The formal approval was granted to the Parents and Friends of Donegal Housing Association for this development to progress to construction stage. Each proposed unit will consist of 4 individual living accommodations – made up with an en suite room up to current HIQA standards and each unit then will have a communal sitting room, quiet room, visitor room and dining room. Pat the Cope welcomed the progressing of this project to tender stage. “Approval for planning permission was granted in March of this year. When completed it is anticipated that the 3 units will provide assisted living accommodation for 12 people in total. “This development will replace the existing unit on the Church Road at Dungloe. The proposed new development will be funded by the Department of Housing and Local Government and I expect construction works to begin by end of year at the earliest.”Pat the Cope added, “I wish to pay tribute to the parents and friends of the Donegal Housing Association project, who have worked tirelessly and have brought the project to this stage. “They have dedicated a great deal of time and planning into making this project a success and now as the project moves to tender stage they have a great deal to be proud of. I wish also to pay tribute to the officials of the Housing Section of Donegal County Council for their excellent work on this project. “I will maintain the pressure on the Department of Housing; in order that this project moves seamlessly into construction stage and with the co-operation of Donegal County Council it is hoped to get a contractor appointed as soon as possible. “I expect this project to be underway without any further delay as soon as the tender stage is completed and a contractor appointed. The new development will be an immense benefit for the broader community and west Donegal,” concluded Pat the Cope.

Drug ATM for South Africans

first_imgIn the same fashion people draw money from ATMs, South Africans will soon be able to get medicine from dispensing machines.The Department of Health made the announcement at the 21st International Aids Conference, which took place in Durban from 18-22 July.The pharmacy dispensing unit (PDU) is being piloted at Thembalethu Clinic in Johannesburg. It is a self-service machine where patients can obtain their medication.Easy to useAnyone interested in using the machine first needs to register. Just like a bank ATM, once registered, they receive a card. To get the medicine, they insert the card into the machine, enter a PIN and get what they need.“The machine,” said the department, “immediately dispenses the selected medication, eliminating the need for the patient to wait in queues.”However, the machine does not totally eliminate pharmacists. There is a trainedpharmacist available on the PDU via a built-in video conference functionality.Progress and challengesSpeaking at the conference, Health Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi noted that South Africa was running the biggest HIV treatment programme in the world. In three decades, he said, the number of patients on treatment had increased from 400 000 to over 3.4 million.“However, the number of health care workers has not kept up with this increase, often leading to frustrated patients and lack of treatment adherence.“The biggest challenge with not adhering to treatment is that it poses a real risk of the emergence of drug-resistant HIV, in the same way drug-resistant TB came about,” he said. “It is thus imperative that we embrace all available measures to make it easy for people to continue with their treatment.”Source: Department of HealthWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Energy Use by Buildings

first_imgBuilding-related energy consumption is actually a lot greaterBut, I contend that buildings and development patterns actually account for significantly more energy consumption and global warming impact than these numbers suggest.With the other two segments of energy consumption in the U.S. — industry and transportation — buildings and our development patterns also have a big impact.Some of the industrial sector energy consumption has to do with heating, cooling, and illuminating factories. Digging deeper into the EIA energy consumption data for 2011, we find that heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) accounts for 0.7 quads, and facility lighting 0.2 quads. Those energy uses, I suggest, really fall into the area of building energy consumption (as opposed to the process of making steel or glass, for example).There is also a portion of industrial energy consumption that has to do with construction materials — the energy it takes to make the stuff we use in buildings houses and commercial buildings. This is often referred to as “embodied energy.” A truly thorough examination of energy use by the building sector would include that portion of industrial energy use for making concrete, window glass, steel I-beams, plywood, and the other building products. I would guess that that is easily a quad or two, though I have not attempted to include that information here. Alex is founder of BuildingGreen, Inc. and executive editor of Environmental Building News. In 2012 he founded the Resilient Design Institute. To keep up with Alex’s latest articles and musings, you can sign up for his Twitter feed. Location EfficiencyLocation Efficiency Trumps Home Energy EfficiencyHouses Versus CarsResilient CommunitiesReduce the Need for Driving Transportation energy use related to the built environmentWith the transportation sector, the impact of buildings — and where we put them — is a lot more significant. Development patterns have a huge impact on the energy expended for transportation. From the 423-page Transportation Energy Data Book – Edition 31, published by Oak Ridge National Laboratory in July 2012, we find that cars and light trucks accounted for 58.7% of transportation energy consumption in 2010, while medium and heavy-duty trucks accounted for 22.3%, buses 0.7%, air travel 7.8%, ships 5.0%, rail 2.1%, and pipelines 3.4% (Table 2.6).We further find that for household travel, in 2009, commuting to work accounted for 28.7% of vehicle miles traveled, shopping 15.5%, other family/personal business 15.7%, vacation 2.3%, visiting friends and relatives 9.4%, and other social/recreational 13.5% (Table 8.9).In Table 8.17 we find that in low-density areas (less than 1,000 residents per square mile) significantly more miles are driven per vehicle per day: 31.6 miles, vs. 18.5 miles when the housing density increases to 10,000 to 25,000 residents per square mile and 14.8 miles with densities above 25,000 per square mile. In units of energy, total U.S. primary energy consumption in 2011 was 97.3 quads (one quad equals one quadrillion Btus — that’s 1 followed by 15 zeros). Of that, the residential sector totaled 21.6 quads, commercial 18.0 quads, industrial 30.6 quads, and transportation 27.1 quads.center_img Site energy vs. primary energyThese fractions and quads are of primary energy use. When we use a kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity for lighting in our homes, that’s a kWh at our house (site energy), but to produce that kWh of electricity probably took about three kWh of primary energy. The difference between site energy and primary energy is due to waste during the production and delivery of energy to our end-uses. With electricity that difference is huge, due to waste heat produced in power generation and losses in transmission. With other energy sources, such as petroleum or natural gas, the difference between primary and site energy is much less.So, when we look at this end-use split (22%, 19%, 31% and 28%) we’re looking at the primary energy, and 41% of that (22% + 19%), as commonly argued, has to do with buildings. So far, so good.Having 41% of U.S. energy consumption attributed to buildings is huge. A very similar metric has to do with greenhouse gas emissions. The percentage is slightly different — because some energy sources are more carbon-intensive than others — but the difference is minor. Buildings account for 40% of total greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. (usually reported as carbon dioxide or carbon equivalents).These numbers tell us that we need to be paying a lot of attention to buildings if we want to make headway in curbing our contributions to climate change. The bottom lineWhat I read into these numbers is that where we build our homes and where companies build their offices and factories has a huge impact on the amount of energy we use in transportation. (I wrote about this in a September 2007 article in Environmental Building News, “Driving to Green Buildings,” suggesting that we consider a new metric of “transportation energy intensity.”)I would venture to say that a third of all of our transportation energy use relates to building location. We shouldn’t ignore this energy when we’re focusing on the energy use of buildings.A third of our transportation energy use amounts to 9.0 quads. If we lump that into the expanded column of buildings and the built environment in our initial total of 21.6 quads for residential buildings and 18.0 quads for commercial buildings, and include the 0.9 quads of industrial energy use having to do with heating and illuminating factories, that would mean that buildings and the built environment account for 49.5 quads of primary energy consumption, or 51% or total energy use.In other words, the direct operation of buildings for heating, cooling, lighting, and appliances, along with a reasonable share of energy use associated with getting to and from those buildings, accounts for over half of our energy use — significantly more than the 41% figure that’s commonly quoted.This means that those of us involved in influencing how buildings are designed and built and where we build — and that includes building owners — share even more responsibility for the nation’s energy consumption (and greenhouse gas emissions) than is commonly suggested. We have a lot of work to do!I’d love your thoughts on whether this argument makes sense. I’ve long appreciated the adage that you can’t manage what you don’t measure, so I’ve spent a good bit of time looking at numbers — especially relating to energy. (Apologies in advance to readers who don’t think quantitatively.)One of those numbers that I’ve always been intrigued with is how much of our nation’s total energy consumption relates to buildings. That sounds simple enough.We are fortunate in the United States that the Department of Energy (DOE) tracks all sorts of energy statistics through the Energy Information Administration (EIA), so a numbers geek can go hog-wild digging as deep as he might want into whatever aspects of energy production and consumption are of interest.On the energy consumption side, the most common breakdown of end uses is Residential, Commercial, Industrial, and Transportation. The EIA shows the 2011 breakdown of these end-uses as follows: residential 22%; commercial 19%; industrial 31%; and transportation 28%. RELATED ARTICLES last_img read more
