first_imgAndre Lowe, Sports Editor The Jamaica Athletic Administrative Association (JAAA) has asked athletes interested in competing at the upcoming IAAF World Relays in Nassau, Bahamas to confirm their availability by April 3.  The request was made through an email, which was sent to the island’s pool of athletes, managers and agents late Monday evening.  With no trials scheduled ahead of the international relay carnival, the JAAA will rely on the expressions of interest from the athletes and consider their form through times recorded since August 1, 2016. In the previous two instalments of the IAAF World Relays in 2014 and 2015, which also took place in Nassau, Jamaica finished second behind the United States with 41 and 46 points.  The Jamaicans took gold in the men’s 4x200m and women’s 4x100m in the 2015 event with the men’s 4x100m and women’s 4x200m and 4x400m teams winning silver medals. Several top Jamaicans such as Elaine Thompson and Kemar Bailey-Cole have already publicly expressed an interest in competing at the meet. The IAAF World Relays will take place at the Thomas A Robinson Stadium in Nassau, Bahamas on April 22 and 23.last_img read more

first_imgIn the wake of the fight against Ebola, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry Nimba Branch on Saturday 20th September 2014 destroyed a huge quantity of expired, contaminated consumable goods from a store belonging to the Jungle Waters Group of Investment located at the Guinea Road Junction in Ganta City.The destruction of the goods brought great dismay to the residents of Ganta wondering why the proprietor of the business center should allow such huge quantities of goods to expire.The goods contained varieties of biscuit including cream crackers, nice biscuit, peanut snack, milk energy Tuts, Tac – Tac biscuit, among others.Some of the biscuit expired since October 2012, but was still kept in the store along with others goods for sale, making buyers or consumers to be astonished.The total of over 500 cartons of biscuits were loaded on a truck and taken to the Zuamill Sub – Port Area where a pit was hug and everything placed in it and set ablaze in the presence of the Environmental Protection Agency, LNP, Commerce Inspector of Nimba and inspectors from the Ganta City Authority.“This is just a portion of the goods you are seeing here, because of lateness in time the rest, which include bags of sugar, some brewery products, and butter amongst others, will be burnt on Monday 22nd September 2014, said Roosevelt Gbormie, Commerce Nimba Inspector.Prior to Monday, police confiscated 18 bags of the expired sugar Saturday night when the management of the store was trying to relocate them.Again on Sunday, over 50 cartons of can Beer were seen loaded on board a pickup under the guidance of LNP, which got people to speculate that they were relocating the goods.Bees were flying all in the store because the sugar was spilling with water around the entry of the store where the sugar bags were packed of the leakage.“They still continue to sell expired goods to the public and when people get sick from running stomach, then they say you get Ebola,’ said a lady who was standing by.Harry Carlson, an EPA Nimba Agent, “we are making sure that the people dispose of all these goods properly before it is taken away; this is the reason we ordered them to dig a pit for the goods to be burnt in.”Jungle Waters Group of Company is one of the largest service providers in Nimba, and it is involved in distribution of dry goods, drinks of all kinds, cold water and petroleum, and is running a mini mineral water factory.Effort to get the proprietor, Mr. Flolyd Tomah proved futile as his phone ran endlessly without a response. The head of the Crime Services Department in Nimba, James Kartoe said police was still investigating allegation of relocating the expired goods overnight.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe National Coordinator of the Guyana Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (GEITI) is confident Guyana will complete its first reconciliation report within the 18 months deadline.During an interview with the Department of Public Information (DPI) today, Dr Rudy Jadoopat said the Secretariat will soon be engaging the general public through outreaches across Guyana.“We’re going to have all these outreaches and we’re going to discuss, at different levels, what information is there, how the processes are taking place. We’re going to get the public involved (and) we’re going to make them aware of some of the challenges we face,” Dr. Jadoopat said.The GEITI Secretariat will soon advertise for the hiring of a Communications Consultant. Dr Jadoopat said the Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG), which is tasked with implementing the EITI standards, will finalise the terms of reference before advertising for the post.The first EITI report is expected to comprise of information on Guyana’s legal and fiscal framework, licence allocation, licence registered, contract transparency, beneficial ownership, exploration, accurate assessment of reserves, monitoring production data, development of procedures and systems to compare declared production volumes with government’s measurements, exports of products from the extractive industry among a detailed list required by the global EITI body.Dr Jadoopat explained that the MSG has established a working group to determine the definition of materiality for the report. “Materiality is the information that they’re going to use to determine whether the omission or the misstatement of this data is going to affect the comprehensiveness of the EITI report,” he explained.Additionally, the MSG will also have to determine the reporting period. “According to the EITI standard it’s supposed to be not later than two years from the date when the report is to be filed,” Dr Jadoopat explained.The MSG will also have to decide what sectors will be covered in the report. Dr. Jadoopat said the focus will likely be on the oil and gas sector and large-scale mining with the inclusion of other sectors over time.Another important step for the GEITI in completing the report is the hiring of an independent administration to compile the report. The administrator is likely to be an international auditing firm, with experience in preparing EITI reports, working with local firms.“We are currently in the process of preparing the terms of reference for the independent administrator,” Dr Jadoopat explained. The GEITI is receiving assistance from the international EITI Secretariat as it finalises the ToRs and fills the position by mid-2018.“There’s a lot of other things that have to be done,” to ensure that the EITI report adheres to the EITI standard.Dr Jadoopat noted the GEITI Secretariat’s work plan for 2018 includes systemising and publishing the information it is collecting on beneficiary ownership, document and discuss government’s policy on disclosure of beneficiary ownership and build capacity on among the GEITI staff. The deadline for the submission of the first EITI report is April 2019.last_img read more

Mr Faughnan, who owns Universal Books, said he has tried to contact Electric Ireland to get the matter sorted but still hasn’t received a reply.“I have contacted them three times but still haven’t got it sorted.“They said they will check the matter but never actually said the bill was wrong.“My bill is normally €100 for the 28 days but I must have been running the entire town’s electric needs this month if this bill is anything to go by,” he said. Mr Faughnan said he has never received a meter reading in the three years he has been in his store.Another local business-owner who received a huge bill for the same area is Labour Party Senator Jimmy Harte.Senator Harte has his constituency office at the top of Church Lane.He received his bill last week but has since had the matter sorted and even received a refund of €1.However he pointed out the huge bills could be an issue for people who paid for their bills by direct debit. “That certainly would be an issue for some people. People should always check their bills,” he said.A spokesman for Electric Ireland said the matter is being investigated.BOOK-SHOP OWNER LEFT ‘SHOCKED’ AFTER €11,000 ESB BILL was last modified: December 17th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:ESBSenator Jimmy HarteUniversal Bookslast_img read more
