Category: vxdkvnuqpinmtwmz Deputy Mayor not authorised to speak on Council’s behalf – Mayor

first_imgCity parking metersBy Ramona LuthiGeorgetown Mayor Patricia Chase Green has revealed that the comments of Deputy Mayor Sherod Duncan on the issue of parking meters in the city are reflective of his own views and not those of the Mayor and City Council (M&CC).Deputy Mayor Sherod DuncanThe Mayor made the disclosure on Tuesday when this newspaper sought clarity from her on a contradiction between Duncan’s comments and that of the contractor with respect to ownership of the meters and revenues that would be collected.According to Chase Green, the only persons with authority to speak on the Council’s behalf were the Town Clerk, Royston King or the Public Relations Officer, Debra Lewis.Mayor Patricia Chase Green“The Deputy Mayor speaks of his own personal reservation. He doesn’t speak on behalf of the Council. The only persons that can speak on behalf of the Council are the Town Clerk and Public Relations Officer,” the Mayor said.This statement comes after Duncan on Saturday said that the installation of parking meters, which was said to begin in September, would be a contracted agreement inherited from the previous Administration. The Deputy Mayor highlighted that though there was an intended partnership between the city and the contractor, Smart City Solutions, the latter would be the sole owner of the meters.Prior to this revelation by the Deputy Mayor, Guyana Times spoke with Chairman of National Parking Meters and the Director of Smart City Solutions, Kamau Cush who announced that the city of Georgetown would benefit from the parking meters with an annual income of $100 to $200 million. However, Duncan contradicted this statement by relaying that the city would instead be receiving a standard 20 per cent gross income accumulated by the parking systems.In response to this, Cush confirmed that Duncan’s statement held some truth with regard to the percentage of income for City Hall, but contended that the city would be 50 per cent owners of the parking system project.The Deputy Mayor said although he was of the opinion that the installation of the parking meter system would benefit the city, thorough consultations must be done before this huge step was taken by the M&CC.“The architecture of such policy must be the construct of several stakeholders, chief of which consultation, on every facet of such a plan and project with members of the public and their elected representatives, is paramount. And that consultation should be meaningful. I have no illusion that our municipality needs investment like this. Yet, even as investments are important, we have the responsibility as good stewards of our city to make sure we have the best investments for all the residents of Georgetown,” Duncan had said.last_img read more

first_imgBut pressed on his future in southern Italy, Ancelotti said he would not walk away from his job. “Resignation? I have never resigned in my life and I never will,” he id. “My future? The team management will make its assessment.“Tomorrow (Wednesday) there will be a meeting with the president to evaluate the situation as it stands right now.”Poland striker Milik scored an early opener after a dreadful mistake by Genk’s Maarten Vandevoordt, who at the age of 17 years and 287 days became the youngest goalkeeper in Champions League history.He added a second before the half-hour at the San Paolo and then completed his hat-trick on 38 minutes from the spot after the hapless Vandevoordt brought down Jose Callejon.Dries Mertens got a fourth with another penalty as Napoli sealed second place in Group E behind defending champions Liverpool, who won 2-0 away to Salzburg in Austria.“It is a well-deserved qualification and one we cherish,” said Ancelotti, who has won three Champions League titles as a coach, twice with AC Milan and once with Real Madrid.“In this last period it is one of the few satisfactions that we have had.”Last season’s Serie A runners-up needed a point to clinch a place in the knockout rounds, and they were ahead inside three minutes after a glaring error by Vandevoordt.The Belgian smashed the previous record as the competition’s youngest goalkeeper held by Benfica’s Mile Svilar, who debuted against Manchester United in 2017 aged 18 years and 52 days.However his inexperience was ruthlessly exposed by Napoli as moments after Kalidou Koulibaly headed against the crossbar, Vandevoordt’s attempt at an elaborate turn inside his six-yard box saw him soon closed down with Milik stabbing home.Paul Onuachu spurned a chance to level for Genk before Milik made it 2-0 on 26 minutes with a clinical first-time finish after a curling low cross by Giovanni Di Lorenzo.Maarten Vandevoordt eclipsed the previous record held by Benfica’s Mile Svilar as the youngest Champions League goalkeeper © AFP / Tiziana FABIVandevoordt’s night went from bad to worse when he fouled Callejon as the Spaniard burst through on goal, with Milik converting the spot-kick for Napoli’s first Champions League hat-trick.Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret then tipped over superbly from Onuachu before the break.The hosts were awarded a second penalty on 75 minutes when Casper De Norre handled a Callejon volley.

Category: vxdkvnuqpinmtwmz War critic Hagel to retire, says he won’t seek presidency

first_imgDemocrats now have a 51-49 majority in the Senate, including two independent senators who generally vote with the party. In the House of Representatives, at least five Republicans, including the former speaker, Dennis Hastert, have announced that they will not seek re-election next year. Meanwhile, two Democrats have announced their retirements from the House, in both cases to go after Senate seats now held by Republicans. Rep. Mark Udall of Colorado is running for Allard’s seat. And in Maine, Rep. Tom Allen is challenging Sen. Susan Collins, who is seeking a third term. Hagel’s retirement plans were first reported by newspapers in Omaha and Lincoln, Neb., late on Friday night.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – Sen. Chuck Hagel, the Nebraska Republican and outspoken critic of the Iraq war who had been mulling a run for president, will retire at the end of his term in early 2009 and will not run for the White House, aides said on Saturday. Hagel has scheduled a formal announcement in Omaha on Monday morning, the aides said. Hagel declined interview requests on Saturday. In announcing his retirement, Hagel will fulfill a promise he made to voters when he first ran for the Senate in 1996 that he would serve only two terms. But his decision presents yet another challenge for the Republican Party in its effort to stop Democrats from extending their majority in Congress next year. Former Sen. Bob Kerrey, a Nebraska Democrat who has been president of the New School university in New York City since leaving office in 2001, has said that he might return to Nebraska to run for office again. Kerrey is also a former governor of Nebraska. Kerrey has informed the New School’s board of trustees of his potential interest in running for Hagel’s Senate seat and has said that the board was supportive. But in an e-mail message on Saturday, Kerrey declined to comment on his intentions. In an interview last month, he had expressed skepticism about running, but added: “These moments don’t happen very often. It’s a possibility.” Democratic leaders in Washington and Nebraska are pushing him to run, saying he would be the party’s strongest candidate. On Aug. 31, Sen. John W. Warner of Virginia, one of the most influential Republicans on military policy, announced that he would retire next year after his fifth term. The next day, Sen. Larry E. Craig of Idaho, who pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after his arrest in a men’s room sex sting at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, said he would resign at the end of September if he could not get his guilty plea reversed. Even if Craig does not resign, he has indicated that he will not seek re-election next year. Sen. Wayne Allard, R-Colo., announced in April that he would retire after his second term. In all, the Republicans must defend 22 seats in the 2008 elections, compared with just 12 for the Democrats. last_img read more

Category: vxdkvnuqpinmtwmz Doe, a deer, a female (attacking human) deer

first_imgCARBONDALE, Ill. – Tammy Emery used to think of deer as sweet and adorable, like Bambi. An encounter with a hard-charging doe changed that. The 31-year-old secretary was among at least seven people threatened or injured by female deer last year on Southern Illinois University’s campus – attacks that have prompted the school to wage a safety campaign during this spring’s fawning season. The attacks in the woods at the 20,000-student university have been attributed to a combination of protective motherly instinct, squeezed habitat and, in some cases, a little too much human curiosity. The message now: Keep your eyes peeled for deer, don’t approach them, and if a wild-eyed deer starts bounding your way, run. Emery heard a rustling and saw “this deer was headed right toward me, full charge.” Emery never saw any fawn, only the adult deer with eyes wide. “I could tell it was angry, but I wasn’t sure what about,” she says. “I know by the time I was in the area she was really mad and going to take it all out on me. I couldn’t have run if I tried.” In an instant, the deer knocked the woman to the ground and delivered a flurry of kicks. Emery, screaming, curled defensively into a ball as the snorting animal rained blows on her, slicing open one of her ears and leaving her with huge bruises and a hoofprint on her hand. “I thought, `This is crazy, this can’t be real. I’m being attacked by a deer,”‘ she recalls.The deer was scared off by passers-by.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinals“Before last year, no one really had heard of this sort of thing,” says Clay Nielsen, a wildlife ecologist at the university. Nielsen believes different deer were responsible for the three attacks that sent Emery and at least three others to the hospital, mostly with minor injuries. “It wasn’t like it was one crazy animal,” Nielsen says. But some of the attacks may have been avoided, he thinks, if the victims hadn’t committed an absolute no-no: moving in on a fawn to pet it. Now, with fawning season soon to peak – last year’s attacks happened June 7-15 – Nielsen and other campus officials are using signs, radio spots, e-mails and fliers about the deer in Thompson Woods. All of this comes too late for Emery, a secretary in the political science department who still winces when she recounts what happened to her on the June afternoon she took a shortcut through Thompson Woods. last_img

Category: vxdkvnuqpinmtwmz Shaban Lubega: PML Daily Premier League team of the Week 13

first_imgAli was impressive as Spurs defeated Chelsea 3-1 on Saturday (Agency Photo)Manchester City and Liverpool continued their brilliant start to the 2018/19 Premier League season with convincing victories away to West Ham and Watford respectively. There were also wins for Arsenal and Everton but Manchester United could only draw at home to Crystal Palace.In the biggest game of matchday 13, Chelsea suffered their first loss of the season, going down 3-1 away to Tottenham Hotspurs.At the wrong side of the table, only three sides registered victories. Huddersfield, Newcastle and Fulham all getting vital three points in their quest to fend off relegation fears.Here are the 11 players that stood out for me in game week 13 in a 4:5:1 formation.GK. Wayne Hennessey(Crystal Palace).Hennessey made five saves as his Palace side registered a vital point away to Man United on Saturday. His stop to deny Romelu Lukaku late in the game was as good as they get.RB. Trent Alexander-Arnold(Liverpool).Alexander-Arnold continues to impress week in and out and against Watford, had a decent day out including a superb curling free-kick to make it 2-0 in the second half.CB. Mamadou Sakho(Crystal Palace).For Palace to earn anything at Old Trafford, their back line had to stand firm and it is what they did. I was more impressed by their Frenchman Mamadou Sakho who produced arguably his most stand out performance in the 0-0 draw on Saturday.Sakho led the back line like the experienced lad he is. Calm in possession and strong in the tackle he was all afternoon.CB. Jonny Evans (Leicester City).Replacing Harry Maguire in Leicester’s back line is no easy fate especially after all the performances the big Englishman puts in week in and out but on Saturday, despite playing with 10 men for most of the game, Evans was not fazed by the pressure as he helped his side scrap out an unlikely draw away to Brighton.LB. Saed Kolasinac (Arsenal).Kolasinac assisted Aubamenyung’s winner in the 2-1 victory over Bournemouth on Sunday. He may not be the classiest of left backs but one who clearly gets the job done like he did on matchday 13.MF. Stuart Armstrong (Southampton).Unfortunate to be on the losing end, Armstrong scored twice for the first time in his premier league career as Southampton lost 3-2 away to Fulham.MF. Aaron Mooy (Huddersfield Town).Mooy scored twice as Huddersfiled defeated Wolves 2-0 at the Molinuex on Sunday afternoon. His brace was the first time any Huddersfield Town player had scored more than one goal in the same Premier League match since he himself did so against Watford back in December 2017.MF. Gylfie Siguardsson (Everton).Everton did it the hard win to defeat lowly Cardiff 1-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday. Despite it not being his finest showing, Sigurdsson was the hero on the day, scoring the winner 11 minutes into the second half.MF. Leroy Sane (Manchester City).Sane scored twice and assisted one of the other two goals as City defeated West Ham 4-0 on Saturday afternoon.MF. Dele Ali (Tottenham Hotspurs).Ali scored the openner in Spurs’ 3-1 victory over London rivals Chelsea on Saturday night. He has scored more goals against Chelsea in all competitions than he has against any other side (6).ST. Aleksandar Mitrovic(Fulham).Mitrovic scored twice as Fulham overcame Southampton 3-2 at Craven Cottage in Claudio Ranieri’s first game in Charge. He has scored more headed goals than any other Premier League player this season (4).Comments Tags: Team of the weektoplast_img read more
