Ex-cop granted bail on illegal firearm charge

first_imgAn ex-cop was on Monday granted bail on an illegal firearm possession charge when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.Thirty-two-year-old Andre Pollydore of South Ruimveldt, Greater Georgetown appeared before Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus and denied the charge, which stated that on December 18, 2019 at Sheriff Street, Campbellville, Georgetown, he had in his possession one 9mm pistol without being the holder of a firearm licence in force at the time.He was represented by Attorney-at-Law Dexter Todd, who, in a bail application, told the court that his client was innocent, noting that the alleged firearm was found in a car which had four other occupants.The court heard that Police ranks, acting on information, stopped motor vehicle PWW 57, in which Pollydore was among the occupants. A search was conducted and the firearm was found in the front passenger seat. But another prosecutor who was in court told the Magistrate that Pollydore handed over the gun to the ranks when the vehicle was stopped.Following the conflicting statements by the Prosecutors, Magistrate Isaacs-Marcus released the ex-cop on $100,000 bail. However, as a condition for bail, Pollydore has to report to the Kitty Police Station every Friday until the conclusion of the case. The case will continue on January 27, 2020.In 2017, Pollydore and two others, including ex-cop Teon Alleyne, were charged after Police found firearms and ammunition at a house in Campbellville, Georgetown.The men were slapped with four charges each: two for illegal firearm possession and two for illegal possession of ammunition.last_img read more

Land titling, interior roads condition high on NTC agenda – source

first_imgAs toshaos from across the country prepare to convene at the Arthur Chung Conference Centre for the 12th National Toshaos Council Conference commencing on Monday, the issues of deplorable roads in the hinterland communities and Government’s inability to issue new land titles are said to be major parts of the agenda.The current state of the Puruni Road, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni)A source close to the National Toshaos Council (NTC) told this publication that the deplorable condition of the interior roads has been a major concern for the Amerindian communities for quite some time. The source explained that some villages, particularly in Regions 1 and 9, are cut off because roads are either impassible or washed away.“A lot of the leaders have complained about the road condition, so when they meet next week, that along with the Amerindian Act and land titles would take centre stage. We hope the Government could address the land title issue and the roads as soon as possible, since the roads and lands are critical for the villages,” the source related.Hinterland Parliamentarian Alister Charlie recently said that more than 4,000 residents in the villages of Wauna, Yarakita, Kamwatta and White Water in Region One (Barima-Waini) are directly or indirectly affected by lack of proper roads. He said that, on a daily basis, students, teachers and other residents traverse the roadways and their transportation cost is substantial.Just last month, the Public Infrastructure Ministry had to close a section of the Linden-Lethem Road, between the communities of Mabura and Kurupukari, to facilitate emergency repairs. Following that, the Ministry of Natural Resources announced that an estimated $640 million has been allocated for works on the Linden-Lethem Road. However, works will not commence until the end of the rainy season, the Ministry has stated.The $650 million was taken from the coffers of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission, and would see maintenance works being executed on the Mabura, Kwakwani and Lethem roads. The condition of those roads continues to deteriorate, due to heavy rainfall coupled with the fact that heavy vehicles laden with lumber constantly traverse them.The condition of the roads has been much talked about, with users complaining bitterly about their state and the damages their vehicles are forced to endure. Heavy rainfall and constant flooding causes a lot of the villages to suffer, since access to them are cut off when the roads wash away.No new titlesSince taking office in 2015, the APNU/AFC Administration has failed to issue new land titles, causing the NTC to come out and bash them for this failure. Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Minister, Sydney Allicock, has said only 26 percent of the Amerindian Land Titling Project has been completed.“I have not been able to title any village, because we want to do things that are truly reflected in the free, prior and informed (consent) (FPIC) process,” the minister stated.The minister told the Parliamentary Natural Resources Committee that the ALT work programme which commenced in 2013 will require another decade before it could be completed, although the project’s life comes to an end in October 2018. According to him, only about 25 per cent of the total US$10 million earmarked for the project has been utilised thus far – some Gy$500 million, or US$2.5 million.The Government in 2013 signed a US$10.7 million agreement for the implementation of the Amerindian Land Titling and Demarcation project, which concluded in 2016. However, an extension in 2017 was requested, resulting in $165 million being earmarked for the advancing of the remaining identified areas.So far, 13 communities have applied for absolute grants for the first time. Of that number, seven have received approval and six have been demarcated. Out of 23 communities, 14 have been issued with certificates of title. But not one single community has so far received a title under this new Government.The ALT project seeks to achieve three major goals: completion of land titling issues and demarcation process for all Amerindian villages that submitted requests; increased use of existing and alternative mechanisms to resolve land titling disputes; and a communication strategy, including a handbook describing the process of titling, demarcation, and social economic impact of secure land tenure.The project is being financed from the Guyana REDD+ Investment Fund (GRIF) under the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS).last_img read more

AMERICAN TOURIST STILL UNDER OBSERVATION IN HOSPITAL AFTER ORDEAL

first_imgThe American hillwalker who went missing in Glencolmcille last week is still under observation in hospital.Kelly Jones is still unable to explain why she went missing to her father, Ricky, who flew from his Georgia home to be with her on Friday.She said she cannot remember anything between 8.30pm on the Friday before last and 7.30pm last Tuesday evening when she woke. She was found inside the rectory at lunchtime on Wednesday and her father visited Glencolmcille and surrounding areas yesterday to get a picture of the desolate scene in which she vanished.Mr Jones, who hopes to take his daughter back to the US on Tuesday, released a statement through gardai thanking rescuers and other volunteers who helped in the search.He said: “My daughter Kelly has been fascinated by Ireland and Irish culture since she was about eight years old.“She has visited Ireland three times now. This story is not about Kelly, but about the Irish people and what they have done for Kelly and her family and friends.” Mr Jones also thanked US embassy officials, gardai, Donegal Mountain Rescue and Killybegs Cliff and Rescue teams, as well as the Coastguard and local volunteers.He added: “They wouldn’t quit until they found Kelly.”Ms Kelly, 41, was found in distressed condition on Wednesday on a couch in the old rectory, which is now a holiday home.A search costing €50,000 took place between Sunday and Wednesday.More than 120 volunteers were joined by the Coastguard helicopter and the search area included the 601-metre-high Slieve League, which has a sharp drop to the sea. Ms Jones was found less than 600 metres from the search HQ on the Glencolmcille GAA pitch.As yet, no one has been able to establish where Ms Jones sheltered but it is assumed she must have been indoors.Rescuers who combed the grounds of the rectory last Sunday and Monday maintain there was no sign of anyone in the grounds at that stage.Gardai have established Ms Jones has a history of depression, dating back several years, and she has been undergoing psychological assessment in Sligo.

Make the Climate Alarmists Happy: Plant a Tree

first_imgMaybe everyone can calm down the climate alarmists without draconian political measures. But who really knows?Scientists at ETH Zurich are saying that if people could plant a trillion trees, they would save the climate for at least 50 years. Their press release, “How trees could save the climate,” presents a startling alternative to the usual finger-wagging proposals for eliminating all fossil fuels, cap-and-trade, wealth redistribution and other draconian measures.Around 0.9 billion hectares of land worldwide would be suitable for reforestation, which could ultimately capture two thirds of human-made carbon emissions. The Crowther Lab of ETH Zurich has published a study in the journal Science that shows this would be the most effective method to combat climate change.Notice that they believe in anthropogenic global warming. But they think tree planting would not be just “one” effective method to combat it, but “the” most effective method. Trees, they argue, are the best natural agents for storing excess carbon. That’s because CO2 is food to a tree.It would take an area about the size of the United States to grow that many trees, but Russia combined with a few other countries has ample open space to achieve the calculated benefit, they figure. Live Science comments,Such newly planted trees could cut carbon (a part of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide) in the atmosphere by nearly 25%, bringing it down to levels not seen for nearly 100 years, the scientists said.Since everybody loves trees, and trees can be planted from seeds and shoots inexpensively with “citizen science,” this seems like a win-win situation. It might also bide time for cleaner energy technologies that reduce carbon emissions to mature while the trees grow.  Their paper, “The Global Tree Restoration Potential,” was published July 5th in Science. If they are right, people-friendly climate solutions grow on trees.Photos by David CoppedgeWhat Do Scientists Know About Climate?But what do scientists really know about climate change? Quite often, new discoveries come to light that call into question long-held beliefs, or bring up new factors not included in climate models. An example comes this week from the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam. Scientists there overturn a belief that weathering of rock causes global cooling.From time to time, there have been long periods of cooling in Earth’s history. Temperatures had already fallen for more than ten million years before the last ice age began about 2.5 million years ago. At that time the northern hemisphere was covered with massive ice masses and glaciers. A geoscientific paradigm, widespread for over twenty years, explains this cooling with the formation of the large mountain ranges such as the Andes, the Himalayas and the Alps. As a result, more rock weathering has taken place, the paradigm suggests. This in turn removed more carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, so that the ‘greenhouse effect’ decreased and the atmosphere cooled. This and other processes eventually led to the ‘ice Age’.The old paradigm cannot be sustained, they claim. With help from Stanford researchers, they point to a different factor as a cause for the cooling:According to the paper, weathering was constant over the period under consideration. Instead, increased ‘reactivity’ of the land surface has led to a decrease in CO2 in the atmosphere, thus cooling the Earth. The researchers published the results in the journal Nature.If as much carbon dioxide had been removed from the atmosphere as previously believed, there wouldn’t be any left! Whatever one thinks of their proposal that surfaces can become more reactive without mountain-building, they conclude that “our new hypothesis must trigger geological rethinking regarding the cooling before the last ice age.”Potentially Fake Activism‘Save the climate! Ride a scooter,’ exclaim promoters of the new electric scooters popping up in major cities. The scooters are claimed to be more eco-friendly by getting people out of their cars. A new article posted by Phys.org, however, asks, “Electric scooters: not so eco-friendly after all?” For one thing, most people using them say they would not have used a car anyway. For another, the lithium-ion batteries have ecological problems of their own. Third, scooters don’t just pop into existence out of thin air. The mining and manufacture of parts for millions of scooters cannot be totally free of emissions. Manufacturers claim they recycle every part, and can recycle 70% of spent batteries. But even recycling activities cannot take place without energy. The article says there are no long-term studies yet to say whether the scooters really make much difference to the climate.Plastic pollution, we all know, has devastating effects in the oceans, where marine life, including whales, dolphins, and sea turtles, are found suffering and dying from the stuff. The solution: Recycle! Right? Seems so obvious, but Live Science wrote, “The plastic we ‘recycle’ is actually horrible for the environment.” Out of sight, out of mind; we ship a lot of it overseas to places like Bangladesh, Ethiopia, or Malaysia, but those countries end up discarding much of it back into the environment as trash.Meanwhile, uninformed politicians with juvenile views of epistemology, oblivious to these factors, will continue to push for the draconian measures and claim that “science” proves it. Give them a sapling with this article and tell them not to be such a sap.(Visited 221 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Government clarifies issues on South Africa slogan

first_imgBrand South Africa’s current logo was approved by Cabinet in 2009.(Image: Brand South Africa) MEDIA CONTACTS • International Marketing Council of SA+27 11 483 0122 RELATED ARTICLES • New logo for Brand South Afroca • Brand South Africa appoints CEO • Brand leadership award for SA• SA fields strong team at Davos 2011Source: BuaNewsThe government has clarified issues around South Africa’s proposed new country slogan, “More Than You Imagine”, following media reports questioning both its development costs and its originality.Friday morning media reports suggested that the proposed slogan to market South Africa as a tourism and investment destination lacked originality, and that the task of coming up with the slogan was part of a R140-million tender put out by the International Marketing Council of South Africa (IMC).According to the reports, the slogan was already being used by the US state of Maryland, a Scottish county, and a US advertising agency campaign.Newly appointed government spokesperson Jimmy Manyi said on Friday that the integrity of South Africa’s marketing campaign remained of the utmost importance.“Government is aware there has been limited use of the ‘More Than You Imagine’ slogan in some promotions and presentations, but to date no country or nation has used or registered this as a global country brand positioning line in a global campaign,” the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) said in a statement in early FebruaryThe GCIS added that the cost of developing the slogan had been been R470 000 (US$64 900), not R140-million ($19.3-million) as implied in the media.“The R140-million refers to the entire brand programmes, both domestic and international, of the IMC over a two-year period 2011/2012,” the GCIS said. “None of this R140-million has been used for the development of the country position statement.”Towards the end of 2010, the IMC presented South Africa’s Cabinet with a campaign slogan – “More Than You Imagine” – following a rigorous consultation and research process.The government said the IMC was already in the process of assessing the impact of the use of the slogan by other parties, and would be reporting on this in due course.A decision had already been taken to hold off any use of the slogan until the matter had been resolved.• International Marketing Council of SA+27 11 483 0122Read more: /index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2171:davos-2011-260111&catid=45:economynews&Itemid=114#ixzz1DGEaXPJIlast_img read more
