Put the people’s interest first – Region 5 VC

first_imgRegion Five (Mahaica-Berbice) Vice Chairman Rion Peters is calling on region’s Councillors to put aside their differences and work towards improving the region.He made the comments as Councillors for the first time this year were able to sit and discuss issues affecting the region. The meeting was a continuation of a previous one which had to be adjourned last week after the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Councillors kept obstructing the proceedings in defiance of the Regional Chairman Vickchand Ramphal.However, this most recent meeting was a one-sided affair since all the APNU/AFC Councillors were absent.Region Five Chairman Vickchand RamphalPeters speaking at the meeting noted that if there is to be development in the region, then there must be cooperation from both sides of the house. He said if each community has better representation at the regional level, it will be beneficial for all.“Mr Chairman, I would also like to sound my disappointment with the absence of the honourable members that were elected to represent the people of this region under the APNU/AFC. It is time that this Council moves forward. It is time that this Council put the interest of the people before all political and selfish desires. We were elected to meaningfully and adequately represent the people of this region and it is time that we fulfil that mandate,” Peters said.During the meeting, several issues were discussed, chief among them being widespread flooding in the region. Several low-lying communities in Region Five are currently under water as a result of the May/June rains. This has been compounded by clogged drains, trenches and canals. The Regional Democratic Councils (RDC’s) took a decision to have drains and canals in residential areas cleared urgently to allow the free flow of water out of canals. There are also several outfall canals in the region which need to be desilted.The Regional Chairman said the administration has been making representation at all levels. He added that the relevant agencies have all been informed in advance, as the Council seeks their intervention.Meanwhile, also absent at the meeting was Regional Executive Officer (REO) Roderick Edinboro, who is also the clerk of the RDC.Ramphal said the REO by way of a letter was told that the Council took a decision to have the statuary meeting on June 23. “However, he refused to make himself available and to make the necessary arrangements along with his officers to this meeting here this morning and further I will like to make it public that he is taking advice from politicians; he is being highly political because in my presence he would have called one of the APNU/AFC Councillors seeking advice on whether he should allow the meeting this morning or not. The only way that a meeting can be summoned is by the Regional Chairman making a request which the REO needs to fulfil. Because of his actions, the people of this region will continue to be affected,” the Chairman said.For the first half of the year, the RDC had not been able to sit because of disruptions to it monthly statutory meetings by APNUAFC regional Councillors. Last week, the coalition Councillors led by Carol Joseph prevented the Chairman from presiding over the meeting, forcing the adjournment.Joseph had accused the Regional Chairman of being disrespectful to the President and as a result, would not allow him to preside over the meeting. Despite calls by the Chairman for Joseph to stand if she had something to say, the Councillor disregarded the utterances of the Chairman and continued to speak.At the RDC’s statutory monthly meeting in January, Joseph led Councillors to stop the meeting moments after it started, demanding that the Chairman apologise to President David Granger for not attending a function which Ramphal said he was not invited to. Joseph has ever since prevented the holding of the RDC statuary meetings.Ramphal told reporters that he did not attend the function because he was not invited to it. He said the meeting was suspended because of the way the APNU/AFC Councillors behaved – not allowing members from the other side of the house to speak and not acknowledging what he was saying.

Di Maria sparks Real derby win

first_img0Shares0000MADRID, Spain, April 27 – Atletico Madrid’s 14-year wait for a win over their neighbours continued as Real Madrid came from behind to win 2-1 at the Vicente Calderon.Radamel Falcao had got Atleti off to a flying start with a simple header from Diego Godin’s cross just three minutes in. However, Real were level nine minutes later when Juanfran turned Angel Di Maria’s free-kick into his own goal and Di Maria struck the winner himself with a fine low drive from Karim Benzema’s pass just after the hour mark.Di Maria quickly turned his attentions to Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final, second-leg against Borussia Dortmund as Real look to overturn a 4-1 deficit from the first-leg in Germany last week.“Winning today gives us extra motivation for Tuesday, which we hope will have the best possible outcome,” he told Gol TV.“We haven’t given up on the league yet and we are doing things well. (coach Jose) Mourinho put out the team he thought would be best and we gave everything.”With the Dortmund game in mind Mourinho had made eight changes to the side that started in Dortmund with Cristiano Ronaldo not even included in the squad due to a thigh injury.A makeshift Real side had got off to the worst possible start when after three minutes Diego Lopez spilled Gabi’s free-kick and Godin turned the ball back across the area for Falcao to head home at the back post.Atleti’s lead disappeared, though, as Di Maria’s free-kick from the right was inadvertantly directed into his own goal by Juanfran.The game was then disrupted by a flow of yellow cards as referee Miguel Angel Perez produced five in the opening half hour alone.The only other clear chance of the half fell to Benzema after a fine solo run and pass from Di Maria, but Thiabut Courtois was off his line quickly to block the French international’s effort.Atleti started the second-half just as they had the first and were nearly back in front when Raul Garcia’s header was helped onto the bar by Lopez before the keeper collected at the second attempt.Gabi then missed a glorious chance as he sliced horribly wide after a brilliant one-two with Diego Costa had put him clean through on Lopez before Garcia also saw a driven effort fly just past.However, the hosts were struck with a sucker punch as Benzema played in Di Maria and his sweet left-footed finish across Courtois gave the keeper no chance.Real’s win reduces Barcelona’s lead at the top of the table to 11 points after the Catalans could only manage a 2-2 draw at Athletic Bilbao.Barca trailed at half-time as Markel Susaeta bundled home Aritz Aduriz’s cross, but the introduction of Lionel Messi as a second-half substitute brought the visitors to life as he scored a wonderful individual goal and then set-up Alexis Sanchez to make it 2-1.Tito Vilanova’s men were denied a minute from time, though, as Ander Herrera pounced on Adriano’s sloppy clearance to fire past Victor Valdes and give Athletic a share of the spoils.Meanwhile, Real Zaragoza moved off the bottom of the table with their first win in 2013 as Ruben Rochina’s goal three minutes from time gave them a 3-2 win over Mallorca.The Islanders had gone in front early on through Tomer Hemed, but goals from Paco Montanes and Helder Postiga put Zaragoza in front before Javier Arizmendi looked to have snatched a point for Mallorca eight minutes from time.However, Rochina’s late intervention moves Manolo Jimenez’s men up to 18th with Mallorca dropping to the foot of the table.And Celta Vigo moved out the bottom three as Augusto Fernandez’s header gave them a precious 1-0 win at Levante.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img David De Gea 1 David de Gea is set to perform a sensational U-turn and commit his long-term future to Manchester United, according to reports in Spain.The Spaniard, who has only one year left on his contract at OId Trafford, wanted to join Real Madrid in the summer and has not been selected by Louis van Gaal so far this season.But, after Real made their move for the 24-year-old on deadline day, the proposed switch collapsed in dramatic fashion, with both clubs blaming each other for the failure to get a deal done.Now, according to El Confidencial, De Gea has had a change of heart over his future and is set to stay at United long-term.The newspaper is reporting that De Gea’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has fallen out of favour with the Real Madrid hierarchy and is trying to agree a bumper new United contract.De Gea is understood to have held clear-the-air talks with Van Gaal earlier this week and could be recalled for Saturday’s visit of Liverpool.last_img read more

Team USA in news

first_imgNot only were the 2002 Games in the United States, but they were held less than six months after the Sept. 11 attacks. Patriotism and spirit were high, and fans were eager to get behind anything American. When the U.S. team set a national record with 34 medals, shattering the previous winter best of 13, the frenzy grew. “You move forward now to ’05-06, and I think you’re seeing a continuation of all of this, a continuation of the recognition of Winter Olympic athletes,” Seibel said. “I would also submit that the stories you have, the stories of athletes who are qualifying for this team are very, very compelling stories.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Daron Rahlves is the better U.S. skier at the moment after a big win last weekend. And Michelle Kwan has a place on the Turin team – for now. Even so, the early edge for a starring role in this year’s Olympic soap opera goes to, of all things, the skeleton crew. The Winter Games might still be a month away, but the Americans aren’t lacking for headlines. “I would say, generally, that bad publicity is better than no publicity at all,” said David Wallechinsky, Olympic historian and author of “The Complete Book of the Winter Olympics.” center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita“With Michelle Kwan back in there, you’ve got some of the star power,” he said Monday. “I don’t think the negative publicity is really going to detract. Once NBC starts selling their version, their product, we will learn about all sorts of athletes you haven’t heard of yet, and the publicity will be good.” Winter Olympics – and the athletes who participate in them – have traditionally been overlooked. The games are far smaller than the summer version, and they’re not nearly as universal. People living just about anywhere in the world can go swimming or play basketball, but it’s a good bet only a tiny percentage in any country can say they’ve taken a ride on a luge. So while the Summer Games might be on everyone’s calendar, people tend to forget there’s a Winter Olympics until the TV ads roll out in full force a few weeks before they begin. It seems to be a little different this year, though. “I think there is a greater level of awareness and recognition of these athletes further out from the games than we’ve seen in the past,” said Darryl Seibel, spokesman for the U.S. Olympic Committee. “I think that phenomenon really began before Salt Lake City.” last_img read more

Alvaro Morata leaves Chelsea to join Atletico Madrid on loan until 2020

first_imgChelsea striker Alvaro Morata has completed his loan move to Atletico Madrid.The Spain international struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge following his £60million move from Real Madrid in the summer of 2017. .@AlvaroMorata has today joined Atletico Madrid on loan until the end of the 2019/20 season.Good luck, Alvaro! 👊— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) January 28, 2019Morata was on the books of Atletico as a youngster before being snapped up by their bitter rivals Real Madrid, with whom he made his professional debut.He represented Real Madrid across two separate spells – either side of a two-year stay with Juventus – and won two La Liga titles and two Champions Leagues with Los Blancos.Chelsea made him their record signing in 2017 with a £60m swoop, but he never looked settled at the club.His exit was effectively sealed last week when manager Sarri questioned where the player’s loyalties lay.Sarri said: “Morata is potentially a very good player. He has the characteristics for playing in my team, but one month ago he said he wanted to play for another team.“It was very difficult for him to give us 100 per cent because of his mental situation. “ He has made 47 Premier League appearances for the Blues, scoring 16 times, but has not started a top-flight game since January.Now – following the signing of Gonzalo Higuain – Maurizio Sarri has sanctioned his exit from the London club.Morata will remain at Atletico until the end of the 2019/20 season, with the club also having the option to make the deal permanent.“I’m very happy and proud to be here. I can’t wait to start training, meet my new teammates and play,” he told Atletico’s official website. Alvaro Morata has not featured much for Chelsea in recent months 1last_img read more
