73-year-old swims Berbice River

first_imgA 73-year-old man on Monday swam across the Berbice River. The swim was to raise funds for free classes for children in East Canje, Berbice.Ashraf Ali also known as the “Conqueror”Ashraf Ali called “Conqueror”, a pastor, had previously swum the Demerara and Essequibo Rivers. Monday’s adventure is the third time he swam the Berbice River.Ali, who grew up in East Canje, but now resides in the US, has been trying to assist children to receive a better education and as such free lessons are being offered to students of that community.Recently, computers were given to several students in East Canje to assist them with homework.Monday’s swim took him just under three hours. He was hoping to complete it in less than half that time. He went out in the river alone, without any lifeguard.After two hours, the Coast Guard was called in after he was not seen.Many worried supporters had their eyes affixed on the river when suddenly, Ali appeared walking from the road.He said he did not expect the river to be that rough, noting that the last time he swam the Berbice River, it took him 45 minutes.“Then it was easy but this time I was not given the correct information about the tide. So it took me a longer time to reach across. I had to fight the waves in order to get across and then I walked in the mud and raised my hands but it was so far nobody could have seen me and then I set out to come back and the waves were rougher and higher,” Ali said after completing the feat.Ashraf Ali at the beginning of his adventure on MondayHe left from the New Amsterdam Ferry Stelling and went to the Blairmont Stelling hoping to return to the point of origin.“I was in line with the New Amsterdam Stelling coming back but then the current washed me that side and I ended up under the Berbice River Bridge.” That location was about one and a half miles from where the former teacher had intended to hit the shore in New Amsterdam.Police officers at the Berbice Bridge checkpoint saw Ali as he went ashore and were able to arrange a ride to get him to the New Amsterdam Ferry Stelling where supporters were waiting.“I know I had people worried. I am sorry for that but I was aiming to do this without any safety. I am sorry that they got worried but the same thing happened when I did the Demerara River back and forth. After I passed halfway they couldn’t see me and then they were on the road but there were bushes between the river and the road, so they couldn’t see me for four hours and then I ended up seven miles away.”The former Berbice High School student told this publication he will do the swim again if required as part of a project for his old school.In September 2016, Ali swam the Essequibo River and at that time had said he had now conquered – having already swum the Berbice and Demerara Rivers twice – the Corentyne and Canje Rivers along with a swim for hours into the Atlantic.He said he wants to swim in the Pacific Ocean in California where he is hoping to get the opportunity to swim alongside a shark while wearing no protective gear.last_img read more

Govt seizes BaiShanLin’s forestry concessions

first_img– after company repeatedly fails to produce investor or plan to pay M debtThe Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC) has repossessed concessions currently being held by BaiShanLin International Forest Development Inc (BIFDI), since it has continued to fail to produce its proposed investor or a clear plan on how it intended to pay off an $80 million debt owed to the State.The announcement was made on Tuesday by the GFC.bai-shan-lin-log-yard-kwakwaniIt was reported earlier this year that the Long Jiang Forest Industries Group, a Chinese State-owned company, had acquired 55 per cent of the shares in BaiShanLin and had intended to fully take over the company in 2016.Minister of State, Joseph Harmon had indicated following a trip to China that he had met with the Vice Director of the Company, Wong Dong Xu, along with officials of BaiShanLin, who had assured that the company’s officials would be in Guyana by May 2016 to complete due diligence for the takeover, and to satisfy and expand on the obligations of BaiShanLin to Guyana.This is yet to obtain, hence the decision by the GFC to immediately repossess the forestry concessions held by BaiShanLin.According to a public statement issued on Tuesday by the Commission, the decision came after the company “failed to deliver on agreed actions to introduce investors to the Commission and having been given time to prove that it had an acceptable plan to clear an approximately GY$80 million debt”.The GFC said, in an effort to conclude the matter, representatives of BaiShanLin were invited to a meeting on April 8, 2016 to provide an update on its plans to clear the debt.The Commission said during the meeting company representatives had indicated that BaiShanLin suffered financial constraints, which affected the establishing of the wood processing facility, and the company was engaging a new partner that would contribute significantly to its investment in Guyana.The GFC Board said it was, at the time, assured of the financial strength of the new partner, who had committed to pay off the debt owed by the company to the Commission.“To date, the BIFDI has failed to fulfil any of its commitments to the Government of Guyana, effectively failing on the obligations it made, which were accepted in good faith.”As such, the GFC said, “In keeping with Forest Governance Practices, the GFC will be formally repossessing the concessions owned by the company and accelerating efforts to recover the debt owed.”The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) in April seized a Lexus SUV bearing licence plate number PRR 2888 and a Nissan minivan with licence plate number PRR 3888 from the Chinese logging company after it had failed to pay import taxes for the two luxury vehicles.Earlier this year, Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman indicated that Government was moving to up the ante in order to recover outstanding monies owed to the State.The Administration had also banned the logging company from exporting any logs from Guyana until a resolution could be met.BaiShanLin has repeatedly been accused of unscrupulous and sometimes illegal practices in Guyana’s forests and its export of logs.When the company started its operations locally, it had also committed under its investment agreement to establish a US$100 million wood processing plant in order to engage in value added exports – this too was never built.Government has also repeatedly over the years been accused of acting in collusion with BaiShanLin to flout Guyana’s laws in its operations.The Chinese company has also been accused of contravening local laws to get around logging quotas by purchasing from small loggers and exporting those logs to China under their names.BaiShanLin has, over the course of the years, been operating in Guyana benefiting from hundreds of millions in concessions, including duty-free imports for vehicles such as heavy-duty trucks and luxury vehicles, as well as cement, steel and fuel for its operations.Over its years of operating in Guyana, the Chinese logging company had also extended its business interest into gold mining, transporting sand and stone, barge construction for transport of logs and quarried stone, duty-free imported steel sales, real estate, construction of residential housing, a government ministry car park and a shopping mall— Sunset Lakes.BaiShanLin began its operations in Guyana in 2007.last_img read more

It wasn’t pretty to watch

first_imgOooh, that hurt. That was a sock to the nose, eyes left too blurry to be exactly sure what was happening. Yep, that was some Pacific-10 Tournament for our local teams, if your tastes run to mortification and disbelief. “We’re going to treat it as an aberration,” USC coach Tim Floyd said. “I have a lot of belief in these young men. I think they’re going to come out and really have a great week of practice.” Hey, a great practice has suddenly become all the rage with USC and UCLA. Now, both teams are licking their wounds, trying to enter the NCAA Tournament, reconfiguring their suddenly unsteady psyches. UCLA will still nab either a first or second seed today and likely will remain out West, but how USC is seeded or where it ends up is a complete unknown. The Trojans are 23-11, finished in a three-way tie for third in the Pac-10 and made it to the conference tournament final. All very impressive. Floyd said he hoped the NCAA selection committee would seed USC the same as any other conference third-place team, though he admitted, “If they watched today, it might be 16.” Anyone watching must have thought Dick Enberg had lost his senses when he said the Trojans had actually won their first two games against the Ducks. No, come on, tell us what really happened. There is no question the Ducks are suddenly the biggest thing to hit the Pacific Northwest since the Oregon Trail. After losing six of eight, the Ducks have won seven consecutive games, each victory more impressive than the last. “Sometimes you can sense when a team gets on a special ride,” Oregon coach Ernie Kent said. “We’re on one now.” The Ducks blew out Arizona, Cal and USC to sweep to a tournament title that was supposed to be earmarked for regular-season champion UCLA. But these Ducks looked a lot like the Bruins who swept to the conference tournament title last year and kept rolling all the way to the NCAA title game, a team peaking at exactly the right moment. They played unexpectedly strong defense, had a terrific inside-out game, ran the floor, hit the boards and shot the ball like they were dropping it into Crater Lake. Harvard-Westlake product Bryce Taylor threatened to outscore the Trojans by himself. The Oregon forward was what you might consider to be hot, as in center of the Earth run by guys with tails and pitchforks. Taylor hit every shot he took. Every 3-pointer, every field goal, every free throw. He finished with 32 points. He was perfect as a dream. Venus de Milo with arms. “That was one of the most phenomenal performances I’ve seen in college basketball,” Kent said. USC had absolutely no answer, for him or anything else in Oregon green. The Trojans were outrebounded 43-26. Outshot 53.6 percent to 37.7 percent. They were outhustled and outplayed all day long. “It was embarrassing,” USC guard Nick Young said. “They came out playing with more intensity, came out fired up. They just played better tonight. They were the better team.” Young and Gabe Pruitt, who had been electric on Friday against Washington State – particularly in the first half – looked more like not-ready-for-prime time players Saturday, or at least not ready for the NBA. Young went 3 for 8. When he hit a 3-pointer late in the first half, it was his first basket since the first half of the WSU game. Pruitt finished 2 for 12, hitting his first shot and then only one of his next11. “I guess I wasn’t ready for their pressure,” Pruitt said. Guess USC just wasn’t ready for the buzzsaw that the Ducks have suddenly become. “They’re playing at a different level right now,” Floyd said. “They were tremendous today. They beat us in all phases of the game.” The thing is, the Trojans thought they were playing at a high level. Height here apparently is a relative term. Certainly, the Trojans will have to recover from this shellacking and raise their game this week in the NCAA Tournament. Will have to display more fight, tighter defense, more purpose. The Trojans have been somewhat difficult to quantify this season, playing a small lineup that seemed to overachieve, that was supposed to be a year away, and hold the (O.J) Mayo. “We’ve had a good year,” Floyd said. “We’re excited about the NCAA Tournament and look forward to the pairings and seeing where that goes. I have a great belief system in our players. They’re a resilient group that’s bounced back after every loss. We trust that we’ll learn from this and come back and play better in the tournament.” Think that’s a safe assumption. Now there will be one more thing to watch in the NCAA Tournament – how USC and UCLA recover from their conference tournament.

Like it wasn’t bad enough that No. 4 UCLA made for the quick exit against a middling Cal team, USC had to one-up the Bruins by being completely dismantled in the tournament final by Oregon, apparently the greatest seven-loss team in the history of college basketball. The final offered more carnage than the movie “300.” It wasn’t a game, it center_img was Mount Vesuvius vs. Pompeii, baby seal vs. club. The Trojans, who had played so well in winning their opening two tournament games, were left shell-shocked. They weren’t angry but numb, not irate but embarrassed. That sort of happens when you play in a conference title game on national television and find yourself trailing by, oh, a mere 39points. The USC scrubs had to go on an 18-3 run Saturday to end the game to make it only an 81-57 pummeling. You weren’t sure whether to offer the Trojans sympathy or condolences. last_img read more

Animal control

first_imgCapt. Aaron Reyes, director of operations for the Southeast Area Animal Control Authority in Downey, said the proposal – AB 1634 – has been needed in California for a long time. “We’ve got to slow down the spigot of animals who are flowing into the agency,” Reyes said. “Most animals don’t have just one baby, they have several. And you can see the effects quite clearly – they grow in numbers exponentially.” Every year, state officials say, more than 800,000 pets are abandoned in California. Taxpayers spend $250 million to house these unwanted cats and dogs in shelters. Thousands of them are euthanized each year. Unaltered dogs are three times more likely to attack humans and other animals, the bill’s supporters say. And California has the highest occurrence of dog bites, animal attacks and attack-related fatalities in the nation, with children as the most common victims, the bill’s supporters said. DOWNEY – A state Assembly bill – to be heard in committee today – that calls for pet cats and dogs across the state to be spayed or neutered by age 4 months is getting strong support from local animal control officials. Assembly Bill 1634, also known as the California Healthy Pets Act of 2007, would make spaying and neutering of pets mandatory by age 4 months, with owners facing a citation for not complying. Those cited would have 30 days – or as much as 75 days, but only with a note from a veterinarian – to have their pets sterilized or face a fine of at least $500 per pet. The bill, authored by Assemblyman Lloyd Levine, D-Van Nuys, is scheduled to go before the Assembly Business and Professions Committee today. SEAACA Cpl. Charles Miller said if AB 1634 passes and becomes law, it will allow local authorities to educate residents about sterilizing their pets. “It’s not something where we want to go and start seeking out the violators,” Miller said. “We want to work with these individuals, to educate them on the benefits of spaying and neutering. We want to bring them into compliance slowly through this bill.” Officials say, once the bill is law, they also expect a two- to three-year lag before any significant reductions will be seen in the numbers of animals in shelters. The full impact could be seen by the end of the decade, according to animal control officials who back the bill. The bill makes exceptions for breeders with certified purebred pets; pets deemed by a veterinarian as being too old or sick to undergo the procedure; certified service or guide dogs; and dogs trained and used for law-enforcement purposes. Whittier resident Israel Sosa, 23, said he believes the proposal is a bad idea. “We adopted a 3-month-old dog that was fixed, and when we got home, it got sick right away,” said Sosa, who was scouting for a dog for his 2-year-old daughter at SEAACA’s shelter Monday. “They should wait until (the pets) are at least a year old,” Sosa said. “At 2 or 3 months, they’re just too young.” But Reyes said spaying or neutering a young dog or cat is not dangerous to them. “That’s a myth,” Reyes said. “Modern recent studies have shown that juvenile spaying and neutering as young as 8 weeks old is healthy for puppies and kittens.” tracy.garcia@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3051 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Governor: Go mainstream with green

first_imgWASHINGTON – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger boasted Wednesday that California’s leadership is making environmentalism hip, sexy and mainstream, no longer just a guilt-driven movement for “tree-huggers” and “fanatics.” “Environmentalists were no fun. They were like prohibitionists at the fraternity party,” the moderate Republican governor told a student audience at Georgetown University, part of an East Coast swing to promote his increasingly enthusiastic embrace of the environment. “Successful movements are built on passion. They aren’t built on guilt,” he said, predicting that environmentalism was reaching a “tipping point” where it will move into the mainstream. “I don’t know when the tipping point occurs, but I know where – in California,” he said. “Here we are, three-and-a-half years later, and I’m on the cover of Newsweek as one of the big environmentalists,” he marveled. “Only in America, that’s all I can say.” Schwarzenegger’s biggest claim to environmental fame lies in California’s landmark global warming law that he signed last year. It imposed the country’s first statewide cap on emissions of the heat-trapping gases that are blamed for global warming. The law, written by Democrats, requires California to reduce emissions by an estimated 25 percent by 2020 – an estimated 174 million metric tons. Some Democrats in Congress, including California Sen. Barbara Boxer, who chairs the environment committee, want to use California’s law as a model as Congress seeks to write federal global warming legislation. Schwarzenegger acknowledged California’s measure alone will not have a significant effect on carbon emissions. But he said it would serve to push the rest of the country, and the world, in the direction the most populous state is moving. California is the world’s 12th largest producer of the emissions blamed for warming the earth. Schwarzenegger didn’t mention that before signing the state’s emissions bill he sought to weaken it in favor of business interests and threatened a veto if Democrats didn’t cede to his requests. Schwarzenegger maintains those changes were not meant to weaken the bill’s environmental goals, but instead represented a difference of opinion with legislative Democrats over how they could be achieved. After his speech, Schwarzenegger met with Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who endorsed his plan to add water storage in California as a way to cope with the expected changes brought by higher temperatures. “We learned a lot from the electricity crisis, and the water crisis that California faces can make electricity look like kindergarten,” she said. In response to a question, Schwarzenegger refused to take a position on the liquefied natural gas terminal that an Australian energy company is trying to build off the Southern California coast. The project was rejected this week by the State Lands Commission, and Schwarzenegger’s decision is due in May. “We have to really look at it, and I have not really seen all the studies,” he said. Schwarzenegger also met with Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Stephen Johnson to press him on a federal waiver California is seeking to allow the state to limit tailpipe emissions. The Bush administration reopened that petition after the Supreme Court’s ruling this month that the government can regulate emissions from cars. California’s efforts to promote greater auto fuel efficiency drew attention in Michigan last month, when a Republican congressman running for re-election paid for a billboard reading: “Arnold to Michigan: Drop Dead!” The governor gave a response Wednesday in his speech to the Georgetown audience: “What I’m saying to Michigan is, `Michigan, get off your butt and join us,”‘ he said. Schwarzenegger has been making frequent public appearances outside California, by his own account trying to influence the presidential campaign with his views on politics and the environment. A native of Austria, Schwarzenegger is not eligible to run for president.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Schwarzenegger likened environmentalism to bodybuilding, his first arena of success, which he said was once considered a marginal sport for weirdos. “It became mainstream, it became sexy, attractive, and this is exactly what has to happen with the environmental movement,” he said. Schwarzenegger appeared at a conference sponsored by Newsweek magazine, which put him on its current cover balancing a globe on his finger with the caption “Save the Planet – Or Else.” A blowup of the cover was behind him as he spoke Wednesday. Even Schwarzenegger – whose environmental record isn’t as spotless as he sometimes portrays – expressed some amazement about that. When he ran for governor in 2003, he recalled, he was hounded by environmentalists complaining about his personal fleet of gas-guzzling Hummers. last_img

SACKED! Marc Wilmots departs post as Belgium boss after early Euro 2016 exit

first_img Marc Wilmots Marc Wilmots has been axed as Belgium’s head coach.The former midfielder, who won 70 caps for the national side, had been in the job since 2012.He led a hugely talented squad, including Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne, Vincent Kompany and Eden Hazard, to the top of the FIFA world rankings but was unable to mastermind success in two major tournaments.Having lost in the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup, Belgium were beaten at the same stage by Wales at Euro 2016.Wilmots, who served as an assistant under Dick Advocaat and later Georges Leekens before taking the top job, had a contract until 2018.But the Belgian FA have now decided to make a change ahead of their 2016 World Cup qualifying campaign.A statement from the Belgian FA on Friday read: “The Technical Commission have made an evaluation of Euro 2016 and have declared that the intended goals have not been reached. “There is a common sense that the team needs a new impulse to lead this group towards a top result at a major tournament.“The Belgian FA will immediately start the procedure to find a new head coach, in a transparent way. The idea is to start the upcoming games in September with a new coach, beginning with an international friendly game in Brussels against Spain on the 1st of September.” 1last_img read more

FARMER PLEADS WITH COUNCIL TO FIND SOURCE OF SEWAGE STINK

first_imgThe raw sewage flows through Shaun Boyle’s land.A farmer is pleading with Donegal County Council to find the source of sewage which is flowing through his lands at Falcarragh.Shaun Boyle, who lives at Ballyness, Falcarragh, says the problem has been going on for more than a year.The council have examined the septic tanks of a number of nearby houses but have not found the source of the smell or sewerage. The sewage is flowing into beautiful Ballyness Bay in Falcarragh.“To be honest it’s not rocket science. I suspect the source of it is behind my lands and flowing down into drains alongside my fields.“But I feel at this stage that I am being stone-walled. I have contacted the council on a number of occasions but nothing has ben done about it.“The reality is that this sewage is flowing out into Ballyness Bay. You can see it. It’s raw sewage. That couldn’t be good for the water quality and the wildlife there,” he said.Shaun said he is now pleading with the council to track the sewage up the fields to find its source. “I would just like it to stop. At first I thought somebody must have dumped some sewage and it was a one-off but that has been going on far too long,” he said. FARMER PLEADS WITH COUNCIL TO FIND SOURCE OF SEWAGE STINK was last modified: August 28th, 2014 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:Ballyness BayDonegal County CouncilFalcarraghsewagelast_img read more

Zach Profit, July 9

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Last week it was hot, humid and nasty. We need rain. I can’t believe it went from hot and humid to cool without really getting much rain. It just kind of spit a little here and there.We could probably go another week and not really be hurt without rain, but I think we will be thankful for some fairly cool nighttime lows. Last week we had some nights where it was 80 degrees overnight and cooler night temperatures will help this week. We have some silks that are brown in some places already. Some corn already is pollinated and it looks pretty good.We started late last week with a corn fungicide and insecticide pass with our Hagie sprayer. We did see some insect pressure. We were noticing some leaves getting chewed up pretty well. The insect pressure seems higher than normal earlier than normal. The insect pressure seems more aggressive, even around our houses with ants. The Japanese beetles are really bad in some areas.We are a good couple of weeks ahead of schedule. We probably started tasseling early last week in some of our earlier hybrids. Most of the field corn is tasseled and the popcorn in the area will probably tassel this week.We have some rally good-looking beans and the other beans need some dry weather to get healthy again. Some of our wetter farms with older drainage systems were hurting pretty bad from all of the moisture during that 7.5- or 8-inch stretch of rain and it dinged the beans pretty good in some places. It was easy to tell where the tile lines were. Those beans really need this stretch of dry weather. It was just too wet for some of those beans in some of our poorer drained soils.The beans that are looking good are looking really good and the beans that aren’t — we can’t write them off yet.last_img read more
