Region 2 residents picket PM’s visit

first_img…call for Govt’s resignation…express no confidence in Agriculture MinisterHours after acting Chief Justice Roxanne George, SC, ruled that the December 21, 2018, resolution of the motion of no-confidence against the A Partnership for National Unity -Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Government was validly passed, Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo was rejected by the residents of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) as he visited the region for a meeting.Essequibo Coast residents protesting at State House, Anna Regina on FridayHundreds of residents, particularly persons from the business sector and rice farmers, staged a picketing exercise as the Prime Minister made his way to the State House in Anna Regina on Friday for a series of meetings with the farmers and business persons.The frustrated farmers on the picket line, told Guyana Times that prior to being defeated by the no-confidence motion, the PM never cared for the development of the region or it’s rapidly declining economic state.“Why he visiting us now when the rice industry is already dead and buried? He promised us $9000 per bag of paddy, we give him our votes and he never deliver. He helped to kill the industry by saying rice is private business. He can fool us most of the time but not all the time. His Government has fallen. We support the no-confidence motion. Go home Nagamootoo, we don’t need you in Region 2,” one protester said.Rice farmers were among the residents who rejected the PM’s visitThe protesters bore several placards with messages such as “Moses is a de facto Prime Minister since December 21st, 2018…No confidence vote must be respected…treat farmers with respect…33 is greater than 32…Government must resign now, announce election date now…farmers can’t survive on $300 per bag urgent help needed.”Meanwhile, at the meeting at State House, some of the rice farmers who decided to go to the meeting told the Prime Minister that they have lost all confidence in the ability of Agriculture Minister Noel Holder, who was also present at the meeting. They informed the PM that they never got any help from Holder since he never took the time to listen to their concerns or provide them with tangible assistance to aid in the betterment of the struggling rice industry. They also questioned the motive of the Government as it relates to the sudden meeting with, particularly, the farmers.Additionally, during the meeting, the farmers accused Nagamootoo of neglecting the region and its residents, explaining that the only time they seem to care is around elections time.At the beginning of 2019, the rice farmers were advised to be judicious in the use of irrigation water since the water level of the Tapakuma Conservancy had dropped significantly as a result of minimum rainfall during this rainy season. The National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA) had said that despite its pumps working beyond the scheduled operating hours, the level of irrigation water in the main canal continued to be insufficient to adequately service all rice fields in both the front and backlands areas.last_img read more

Lawyer names Pryor Posey as players he warned Tressel about

Terrelle Pryor and DeVier Posey reportedly are the Ohio State football players who were mentioned in e-mails to coach Jim Tressel regarding his players’ association with a Columbus tattoo shop owner who is under a federal drug trafficking investigation. In an interview with ESPN’s “Outside the Lines,” Columbus lawyer Christopher Cicero confirmed he mentioned Pryor and Posey while informing Tressel of his players’ involvement with Eddie Rife, the owner of Fine Line Ink tattoo parlor. Pryor and Posey, along with Dan Herron, Mike Adams, Solomon Thomas and Jordan Whiting, were suspended for the start of the 2011 season for selling memorabilia and receiving improper benefits from Rife. Tressel exchanged eight e-mails about the players’ involvement with Rife from April 2, 2010, through June 6, 2010. Earlier this week, OSU released the e-mail conversation between Cicero and Tressel OSU representatives on Friday declined to confirm the names of the football players Cicero mentioned. University spokesman Jim Lynch said the university is required by law to redact information that is specific to individual students. “The Federal Education Rights & Privacy Act requires us to redact any information that can lead to the identity of students, especially a student’s name,” Lynch said in an e-mail to The Lantern. “As caretaker of these documents, we still cannot reveal the student names in the document.” Athletic department spokeswoman Shelly Poe also declined to confirm ESPN’s report, saying in an e-mail to The Lantern, “We will not have any more comments until the NCAA makes its ruling.” Tressel said he did not report the actions of his players because of confidentiality issues. OSU’s investigation of the matter also resulted in suspending Tressel for the first two games of 2011 for failing to properly report the possible infraction to the university after Cicero brought it to his attention. Tressel was fined $250,000 to cover the costs of OSU’s self-imposed investigation. Cicero, a former OSU linebacker and letterman during the 1983 season, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. read more


Ohio State Athlete of the Week Tiffany Cameron

Ohio State women’s soccer forward Tiffany Cameron said she’d made a promise with herself heading into her senior season. “It’s my senior year and I made a promise to myself that I am going to go into every game like it’s my last,” Cameron said. Having notched five game-winning goals and the Sept. 10 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honor, it seems that Cameron is making good on the promise to herself.. “It’s an honor, so I was very excited and happy,” Cameron said of winning the Big Ten honor. “I know a lot of people are happy for me and proud of me and I just need to keep it up.” Cameron said her strengths make her stand out as an offensive player. “I think (it’s) my ability to run at players and get in and behind players,” Cameron said. “My finishing has been pretty good so far … I think (those are) my biggest strengths, just kind of playing around with the ball and doing my own thing and swagger.” Cameron has scored seven goals in her last six games and has eight total scores on the season. OSU freshman forward Marisa Wolf said Cameron works hard to score those goals. “She is determined and won’t give up until she gets that goal,” Wolf said. Cameron’s productivity, however, hasn’t necessarily been limited to this season. In her career as a Buckeye, Cameron has netted 19 goals, 11 assists and 10 game-winners since arriving to Columbus in 2009. In that span, she’s played in 66 games and started in 61 of them. Coach Lori Walker said Cameron’s ability to be unpredictable helps her succeed on the field. “Very unpredictable when she has the ball at her feet,” Walker said. “When we need her most she is coming through for us, so I credit to just how hard she is working and the entire team works hard to get her in the right place and I think that is an important part.” Cameron, though, admitted she has a weakness. “This year, I am working on not letting things get to my head and taking it one step at a time,” Cameron said. “I think when I take things one step at a time I succeed.” Sunday’s 2-1 overtime victory against Minnesota was the Big Ten opener for the Buckeyes, and Cameron said she is excited to take on more Big Ten teams this season. “I am definitely looking forward to the Penn State game because they are always coming out to play hard and they are a good team,” Cameron said. “I think the Penn State game and Wisconsin and Michigan, but mostly the Penn State game.” Cameron and OSU are scheduled to take on Illinois on Friday at 7 p.m. in Champaign, Ill. read more


Thierry Henry to replace Steve Bruce as Aston Villa manager

first_imgThierry Henry could become Aston Villa’s new manager after the ownership change.Thierry Henry was an assistant to Roberto Martinez during Belgium’s best ever World Cup run. Players have been praising Henry left and right.Lukaku on Henry: “He helps me so much with everything in the game. Since we’ve been working closely together I think I’ve raised my game twice as much than what I thought I could do, and I owe him a lot.” #mufc [TPT] pic.twitter.com/HfNdgP317O— United Xtra (@utdxtra) July 10, 2018“I think it’s so important to have somebody like him in the team.” – Adnan Januzaj (Kveo)“Thierry Henry brings something completely different,” “He’s someone that has been in the situation of having to develop a mentality as a team. To change the dream of winning something special.” – Roberto Martinez (Kveo)Steve BruceAllardyce praises Newcastle’s Steve Bruce Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Sam Allardyce believes Steve Bruce is a better fit at English Premier League side Newcastle United than he would ever have been.“Of course he’s very important to us. He brings his stories, his experience to the group” – Toby Aiderweireld (Guardian)A couple of days ago, Aston Villa was saved from its financial crisis when Chinese chairman Tony Xia sold around 55% of the club’s stakes to Egyptian multi-billionaire Nassef Sawiris and Fortress Investment Group co-founder Wes Edens. Sawiris is the wealthiest Egyptian in the world with a net worth of €5.6 billion.Thierry Henry decided to quit his day job as Sky Sports pundit in order to pursue his long-time ambition of becoming a football manager (Mirror).“These experiences have only made me more determined to fulfil my long-term ambition to become a football manager.” The 40-year-old Arsenal all-time leading goalscorer is a free agent at the moment, so it seems logical that Aston Villa’s new owners will try to add Henry to their staff before anyone else does.His appointment would signal the end for Steve Bruce, who has been Villa’s coach since 2016. He led the team to the Championship playoffs last season, where he lost to Fulham in the final at Wembley. Despite the successful campaign, financial problems began to really affect the club, which would have to sell some of its best players, including highly-rated Jack Grealish, in order to stay competitive. The new owners saved the club from financial ruin, but they’re the ones who’ll now dictate its next direction.If he were to become Aston Villa’s new manager, Thierry Henry would follow the footsteps of former Premier League superstars Frank Lampard (Derby County), Steven Gerrard (Rangers) and Patrick Vieira (Nice), who have entered coaching waters recently.last_img read more
