first_imgThe ‘filthy’ condition of Monrovia Slaughter House coupled with the “reckless” handling of animals in the popular site has forced lawmakers to take action aimed at bringing the situation to a halt.The Monrovia Slaughter House, located on Jamaica Road on Somalia Drive, has been a focus of negative attraction for commercial animals over the years thereby prompting concerns from public health experts and others about the handling of animals and materials used in processing meat for the general public consumption.With these concerns looming, the House of Representatives has mandated its functionaries to assist in tackling the problem.Plenary yesterday mandated its committees on Agriculture and Health to investigate the movement of animals, particularly cows, goats and sheep in the Jamaica Road vicinity in an effort to foster a civilized, peaceful and clean environment.The House’s action was informed by a communication addressed to that August body by Grand Kru County Representative Numene T. H. Bartekwa.Bartekwa had complained of the risk posed by animals allowed to move in the streets and the health condition the moving animals transport to human environment.“Institutions and individuals who are engaged in the management and sale of animals – especially cows – at the Slaughter House usually take these huge size of animals in their hundreds and spread them on the road to and from Johnsonville, outside Monrovia with no regard to the lives and properties of people located and commuting along that road just for the intention of going to feed the animals,” Bartekwa declared.According to him, said action has been causing many problems on a daily basis including, but not limited to “obstruction of free flow of traffic, kids injuring themselves when running from the animals as well as from those in charge of the animals.”Bartekwa opted for the appearance of the Ministers of Agriculture, Justice and Police Director Chris Massaquoi to answer to questions about animals’ movement and the health condition of the area.The Grand Kru Lawmaker’s quest was tabled when Montesrrado County Representative, Julius Berrian’s motion called for the line ministries and agencies to be investigated by committees and committees make a report to plenary in two weeks before any action would be instituted, if it becomes necessary.

first_imgWith any oil producing country in the world, there has always been incidents of oil spills, and as such, Guyana must make all the necessary plans to ensure that it can respond effectively and efficiently in the event that any such incident occurs offshore Guyana when production begins in 2020.This is the firm view expressed by former Trinidad and Tobago Energy Minister Kevin Ramnarine, who is advising Government not only on the development of a local oil spill contingency plan, but one that will cater for neighbouring countries.Former T&T Energy Minister, Kevin RamnarineRamnarine dubbed it “bilateral oil spill contingency plan.”“I don’t know of any country in the world that produces oil that has never had oil spill; whether small, medium or large, “the former Energy Minister said.He explained that ever since the 1989 Alaska oil spill (one of the world’s largest oil spills), it changed environmental and shipping standards. “And so that also changed Exxon’s behaviour. It became a much safer company after that.” However, Ramnarine said having a bilateral oil spill contingency plans with your neighbouring countries is important.“Because, of course oil spilled in water doesn’t only select to one country. We had an experience in Trinidad where in 2017 our oil spill from Trinidad found its way into Venezuela,” he recalled.Contingency planGovernment had disclosed that an oil spill contingency plans is being crafted. The Civil Defence Commission (CDC) is the lead agency that is formulating the national response plan. But the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC); the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Maritime Administration Department (MARAD) are also assisting.Meanwhile, the former Minister also warned that Guyana should not make plans based on assumptions and is therefore advising the country against borrowing money before first oil. Ramnarine who said there are some examples of this not turning out well for some countries.“I think Guyana would be best advised to wait for the revenues to start to flow because there’s another country Ghana, where they started to make plans based on assumptions of a certain oil production level and a certain price and then the oil production level didn’t happen, and the price fell,” he told media operatives at the sidelines of the Guyana International Petroleum Business Summit and Exhibition (GIPEX) 2018.Ramnarine noted that while some initial work on the country’s infrastructure may be needed before production begins in 2020, this should not be done to the extent of requiring too much finances.“So, I think the two have to happen simultaneously. I think some developments have not but when the revenue starts to flow in 2020, some of which will be used for infrastructure…I would really wait for the monies to start to flow to begin with the significant infrastructure,” he explained. Asked whether he thinks that Guyana has put enough mechanisms in place to protect its cost recovery, the former Minister responded in the affirmative, but noted that institutional strengthening is key.“Those persons should be in the process of being trained right now and you can probably send people abroad to train or bring people from other countries that have experience in cost recovery…”Ramnarine stressed the need for training in the area of metering and calibration, which he claimed is a huge problem facing the oil sector in his home country, Trinidad and Tobago.“So, there has to be officers in the Petroleum Commission, whose job it is to go and read the meters and calibrate because if the meter is off by a couple of per cent, we’re talking about $340,000 of oil per day. So if you make an error of 0.5 per cent, you’re talking about big money. Small errors mean big money.”Ramnarine concluded that while Government is consulting it must ensure that in the end, they make the right decisions and choices because these decisions will determine the future of the sector.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City completed a treble by thrashing Watford in the FA Cup final © AFP / Daniel LEAL-OLIVASLONDON, United Kingdom, Jun 6 – Manchester City have launched a legal bid to stop UEFA banning them from the Champions League over alleged financial misconduct, according to British media reports on Thursday.City, who retained the Premier League title this season, are in danger of being kicked out of future editions of the Champions League after UEFA probed reported Financial Fair Play breaches. The investigation was triggered by European football’s governing body in March after claims City, who have Abu Dhabi-based owners, hid revenue from overvalued commercial deals in order to meet the UEFA spending guidelines.According to the Daily Telegraph, the Premier League champions have now approached the Lausanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sport ahead of an imminent sentencing decision from UEFA Club Financial Control Body’s (CFCB) adjudicatory chamber.It is believed the adjudicatory chamber is unlikely to rule against the conclusions of chief investigator Yves Leterme, who signed over his probe into an alleged payments deception two weeks ago and is thought to have recommended City should be banned from the Champions League.That would leave Pep Guardiola’s side out of Europe’s elite club competition, potentially for the 2020-21 campaign.But City are believed to be challenging UEFA’s right to send the case to their adjudicatory chamber and its competence to sit in judgement on the club at all.City did not respond to a request for comment, but the club have previously said the referral to the judicial branch “ignores a comprehensive body of irrefutable evidence provided by Manchester City”.City, who added the FA Cup and League Cup this season for an unprecedented domestic treble, also said the allegations of wrongdoing were “entirely false” and that there is “comprehensive proof” otherwise.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE REPORTS SUNDAYKnockalla CupRathmullan Celtic 1 Glenea United 2Rathmullan Celtic bowed out of the Knockalla Caravans Cup after a closely fought encounter against their bitter rivals from the Premier League, Glenea United, with two second half goals for the Glasserchoo outfit cancelling out Ryan Connolly’s first half wonder goal for the Seasiders.The Glasserchoo outfit started brighter in the opening moments of the game but it was the Hoops who got off to the perfect start after 20 minutes when Chippie Barrett played an incisive defence splitting pass from the centre of to the park to Ryan Connolly who controlled the pass superbly before executing an exquisite chip over the keeper. There were chances for both sides as the first half unfolded but the one goal advantage stood for the Hoops before the famous half time soup from Adrian Gallen.In a typical cup clash, chances were few and far between for both sides as a stalemate in the midfield unfolded, but the visitors came right back into contention when they were awarded a free kick on 67 minutes from 25 yards out. Paddy Sweeney unleashed an unstoppable strike into the top corner which gave keeper Mark Walshe no chance much to the delight of the vociferous travelling support from Falcarragh.Tom Coll’s visitors almost immediately took the lead when Sweeney hit a thunderous strike from the edge of the area that drew a world class finger tip save from Walshe. Glenea took the lead on 75 minutes when an opportunistic lob from defence fell to Sweeney up front and the striker spotted Walshe off his line and flighted the ball into the net much to the disappointment of the keeper and home faithful. The Seasiders pressed for that elusive equaliser with Dara Patton denied by a superlative save from Sean Gallagher in goals after the striker unleashed a venomous strike from the edge of the area on 81 minutes which seemed destined for the bottom corner but for Gallagher’s fine reflex save around the post.Sweeney and Gallagher impressed from Coll’s Glenea side while an under strength Hoops side accounted well for themselves as they look forward to a two week break which gives time for the squad to return to full strength ahead for the mouth watering derby clash at home to noisy neighbours Milford United in the top flight of the Donegal League. Referee: Marty Mc GarrigleCootehill Harps 3 Milford United 4Milford United travelled to Cootehill and returned with their Knockalla Cup ambitions intact. The Moyle View men went two ahead in the first ten minutes of the match, Gary Merritt and PJ Hagan finding the net. Cootehill fought back and by the half hour mark were on level terms. On forty minutes Ciaran Mc Ginley scored to give Milford the lead going in at the interval. PJ Hagan got his second and Milford’s fourth ten minutes into the second half.

Drumkeen broke the deadlock midway through the first half when Ronan Coyle volleyed home. They added another three without reply to put their name in the hat for the next round draw. Lifford Celtic will now have to focus on their remaining league matches as they defend their Premier Division crown.SUNDAYWatson Hire Division One Lagan Harps 3 Gweedore United 1Lagan improved their chances of escaping relegation with their best performance of the season in a game reversed to Gweedore. Gweedore United started well and took the lead when Conor Harley did well to parry Ciaran Mc Fadden’s shot but Francis Gallagher fired home the rebound. Gweedore continued to threaten but Lagan equalised on twenty four minutes when Eunan Diver put Austin Marron through and he lobbed the advancing keeper. Gweedore continued to press with Shane O’Donnell pulling the strings in midfield but Lagan always looked dangerous on the counter attack. Lagan took the lead on thirty minutes when Travis Crawford won a tackle and found James Gillen who put Ross Hamlyn through to score. Lagan had a chance to extend their lead before the break when they had a two on one situation but Ross Hamlyn shot over. Gweedore started strong in the second half however Lagan extended their lead on forty seven minutes when Austin Marron scored from outside the area. Gweedore dominated the remainder of the game but the Lagan goal survived. Conor Harley pulled off a number of fine saves as the pressure mounted and Lagan held on for three vital points.

Andrew Mackey picked up the ball in midfield and ran through the middle of the visiting defence and fired in a great shot from 25 yards which crashed off the post. Peter Alvey was on hand to tap home the rebound from eight yards. The same pair combined two minutes later but on this occasion Alvey’s shot was blocked away for a corner. Kerrykeel’s first effort on goal saw a great shot from 25 yards turned around the post for a corner. Despite a large amount of possession Dunkineely could not add to their tally before the break.The second half followed the same pattern as the first with Kerrykeel playing a passing game but failing to break down the home defence. Paddy Mc Granaghan had a great effort from distance go narrowly wide on 65 minutes. Dunkineely doubled their lead on 73 minutes when following great work by Adrian Nesbitt and Jonathan Cassidy, Andrew Mackey crossed for Adrian Ward to finish from six yards. Dunkineely were reduced to ten men on 80 minutes and this gave Kerrykeel the impetus to push forward to try and get back into the game but despite their best efforts they could not make the breakthrough.

Glencar broke the deadlock after Paddy O’ Kane hoisted a free kick towards the back post and Martin Brogan met it to tap home. Orchard could have levelled the game before half time through Niall Bonner but a good save from Ray Mc Feely prevented the goal.
