Vintage Shiv gets Jaguars’ first win

first_imgBASSETERRE, St Kitts (CMC): Veteran left-hander Shiv Chanderpaul rolled back the years with a vintage half-century, as Guyana Jaguars trounced hapless Leeward Islands Hurricanes by 72 runs to post their first win of the Regional Super50 here Saturday. Stumbling on 51 for three at the end of the 17th over, Jaguars were steadied by Chanderpaul’s polished 81 and recovered to reach 219 for nine off their 50 overs at Warner Park. Seamer Quinton Boatswain was the best bowler with four for 54, while medium pacer Daron Cruickshank (2-26) and leg-spinner Odeane Browne (2-39) captured two wickets apiece. In reply, Hurricanes were 39 for one in the 13th over before losing their last nine wickets for 108 runs, as left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul snared three for 32 to cripple the innings. Left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie (2-16) and left-arm seamer Raymon Reifer (2-19) both ended with two wickets apiece. Orlando Peters led the Hurricanes’ fight with 35, and opener Chesney Hughes got 27, but wickets fell steadily to derail the run chase. Medium pacer Paul Wintz claimed Shane Jeffers in the second over for two with three on the board, before Hughes and Nkrumah Bonner – replacing Cruickshank, who retired hurt before he had scored – ensured a stand of 36 for the second wicket. The right-handed Bonner managed just six before perishing in the 13th over, and Hughes followed in the next over after facing 42 balls and counting two fours, run out by good work from Reifer. Going nowhere at 69 for five, Hurricanes were handed a flicker of hope by Peters and Jacques Taylor (22), who put on 48 for the sixth wicket. Peters struck two fours and a six in a 79-ball innings, while Taylor supported in a 39-ball knock, which included a single boundary. Once the stand was broken, however, the last five wickets crashed for just 30 runs. Chanderpaul had earlier spared Jaguars blushes after they had been sent in. Cruickshank produced a burst that accounted for in-form opener Vishaul Singh (20) and captain Leon Johnson for eight. However, the 41-year-old Chanderpaul faced 128 balls and struck six fours and two sixes to lead the Jaguars’ comeback. He added 33 for the fourth wicket with Reifer (13) and a further 54 with wicketkeeper Anthony Bramble, whose 21 came from 20 balls. Chanderpaul also forged a 29-run, sixth-wicket stand with Royston Crandon (9), before both fell in successive deliveries at the start of the 46th over. Permaul then added precious runs for Jaguars at the death, lashing three fours and a six in a cameo 30 off 14 balls.last_img read more

Players happy with Red Stripe/Nike development programme

first_imgPlayers involved in the Red Stripe/Nike development programme are very happy with the initiative as they look forward to move on to a bigger stage in their football career. The beer giants and the American sports apparel company teamed up to stepped up the players’ development programme, which was started two years ago. Rohan Richards, who moved from Jamalco to Humble Lion during last month’s transfer window in the RSPL welcomed the joint venture. “It is very interesting. The programme is helping us as players to build confidence, accuracy, speed, ability, quick movements and other things to develop talent,” Richards said about the two-day programme that began Thursday at Barbican Complex. “The programme would definitely help me in a quest to break into the overseas market,” the 23-year-old midfielder noted. Another player, Jamoy Sibblies of Maverley-Hughenden described the programme as a learning curve. “This is a learning session. I am happy for the opportunity to be involved, so when I am back at my club in training the aim is to work on the things to improve my game,” Sibblies said. Michael Bookbinder, Nike Soccer Development manager outlined the approach of the programme. “Its been very good; the players are enthusiastic about the new technique and new training system courtesy of Nike. The elite training has four major stages. We have introduced Ronaldo which deals with speed; Rooney power, precision and scoring; Iniesta -touch and control; and Pique long passing,” Bookbinder explained. “They liked it as it gives different techniques. This is a pro-camp. We are very happy to be invited. We see potential as the aim is to give them opportunity to get to the next level as professionals overseas,” he added. Red Stripe’s assistant brand manager Rashima Kelly says her company is totally behind the development of young players. “It is a holistic programme. We want to get to the point where it’s a natural transition for players to move from the Red Stripe Premier League to the national team,” Kelly informed.last_img read more

Oil contract could be amended

first_img– says presidential adviser on petroleum…while criticising low royalty and large concession…not invited to Guyana’s first Oil and Gas SummitBy Lakhram BhagiratA contract is an agreement between two parties and when one is dissatisfied then the terms of that agreement could be reviewed and amended, according to the Presidential Adviser on Petroleum, Dr Jan Mangal.Dr Mangal made the statement while speaking to reporters following a discussion on the Government’s vision for the oil and gas sector at the University of Guyana’s Turkeyen Campus on Wednesday.Some of the students at the discussion“A contract is an agreement between two people and both parties need to be comfortable. If one party becomes really uncomfortable it will be changed. Guyana is a sovereign country, the evidence out there from around the world is that when situations change, like look at the price for natural gas people sign contracts for natural gas at very high price long-term contracts, the price for natural gas has dropped drastically, people are renegotiating those contracts,” he stated.He added that if a contract is amended then the oil companies would contend that Government is discouraging investments but noted that investments ought to be weighed compared to the level of comfort with the contract.He explained that if Guyana decided to amend its contract with ExxonMobil then there will be the perception that it does not know what it wants but noted that he believes otherwise.Dr Jan Mangal and Vice Chancellor, Professor Ivelaw Griffith“We have to be careful not to simplify too much. It is not black and white, there could be a whole lot of grey area in the middle,” the petroleum expert noted.Dr Mangal has a Doctorate in Offshore Geotechnical Engineering from Oxford University and a Bachelor in Civil Engineering from the University of Edinburg. He worked in the marine and oil and gas industries for over 18 years, where he spent 13 of those with US oil giant, Chevron, working on major projects in the USA, West Africa and Asia.When asked about whether he thinks the contract should be renegotiated, Dr Mangal stated that while he has his views he is not ready to pronounce on that publicly but did say it is a topic of discussion with the Government.“Last year the focus was getting the contract out so Guyana could get a comfort level of what the contract was about. The process has just started; it will probably take some time for the people to do analyses and Guyanese as a whole to decide what they want to do… sticking with things how they are or looking for another solution,” he explained.He further explained that if Government needs to get to a point where Guyanese are comfortable and trust them when it comes to the oil and gas industry.“It is part of my remit to push for transparency so don’t want to be in a situation where information is withheld from citizens and then they develop mistrust or further mistrust of the industry. We need Guyana and Guyanese to be comfortable with what they have and the direction they take. So, the way to do that is by putting information out there and not withholding information,” he noted.Dr Mangal informed that following the release of the contract in December of 2017, he is now in the process of organising a team of experts to review the contract for the Government to decide a way forward.“I am pushing to get experts… to get support from the IDB, IMF, etc to go and do thorough review of the contract. Some of them already have reviewed the contract so it’s the case of doing more of that and getting results and then for Government to look at the results and decide what to do,” he related.When asked if those reports should be made public, the oil and gas expert said it is his belief that all things should be made public so as to encourage transparency.Low royaltyUnder the renegotiated agreement, Guyana receives two per cent royalty on earnings from ExxonMobil’s oil sales while the US oil giant would not be required to pay taxes on its share of the profits and according to the President’s Petroleum Adviser that is low compared to global standards. He also raised concerns about the system used to negotiate that agreement and also the expertise of the persons doing the negotiating.“What we can do is look at what are the international norms. Royalty, when you look around, is more between 10 and 20 per cent, not two per cent. Tax is usually 20-30 per cent in some places, the production split of 50-50 is not too bad,” Dr Mangal noted while responding to a student’s question about whether the Government negotiated a fair contract.“If a process was followed then we would know who was involved, knew their competencies, expertise and that they went there to bat for Guyana. A lot of people in Guyana right now are questioning that,” he added.The presidential advisor said generally oil companies are very powerful and experts in everything they do and they know how to influence governments to a “T” but would buckle under public pressure and as such he encouraged Guyanese to engage in “intelligent debates” on the future of its oil and gas sector.Large concessionBased on the 1999 agreement and the new 2017 deal, ExxonMobil is controlling the entire Stabroek Block of about 600 blocks or 10 times more than what Guyana’s laws allow. That was raised by a law student of the university who sought to get clarification and Dr Mangal’s opinion on the control of such a large concession.“It is not good for one company owning too much of your acreage. Exxon already owns over 50 per cent of the acreage in Guyana. That’s not good for Guyana,” he said.“The other thing to consider in Guyana that this is a first project. Guyana is trying to attract international investment, however, Guyana needs to also remember that the Stabroek Block is a huge block and that contract promises the whole block. It could be that all of Guyana’s oil is in the Stabroek block… So if this was a small block then it would be okay to say oh well let’s leave it to the next block we will get a better deal but the block is a huge block so Guyanese need to weight the tradeoff with that situation of the blocks and trying to attract foreign investments,” Dr Mangal added.He noted that in some countries, they mandate competition and control who the blocks are allocated to while recommending that a review of the block allocation be done.GIPEX SummitThe University of Guyana hosted the discussion on the day the inaugural Guyana International Petroleum Business Summit (GEPEX) opened and his absence from the event was notable.When asked about that, he told reporters that he was never invited to the event despite his boss, President David Granger, being listed as one of the speakers.“I was not invited to go so that’s the main reason. If you looked at the website, you will see President Granger picture was there. I would assume he was invited,” he said.However, the President was a no show at the event.last_img read more

Education Month launches with ‘wellness’ theme

first_imgAs schools across the country opened their doors on Monday, the Education Ministry launched Education Month 2017, which focuses on wellness and family, with the aim of linking academics with community development. The fact that education is at the heart of community development prompted this year’s theme “Promoting Wellness in Communities through Quality Education.”It was announced by Chief Education Officer (CEO) Marcel Hutson, who told aA section of the gathering at the launch of Education Month 2017gathering at Umana Yana in Kingston, Georgetown, that quality education was a human right.“We at the Ministry of Education have been working assiduously to ensure our children from every part of Guyana, including the hinterland, enjoy the best possible education. We have provided the foundation for equity and purposeful development by improving the quality of teacher education,” the CEO told the gathering.Hutson noted that these improvements focused on developing continuous professional development programmes geared at addressing the weaknesses of some teachers. To this end, provision was made for training and coaching in the subject areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and literacy. The CEO indicated that for this new academic year, there will also be a review of theStudents performing a cultural piece at the Umana Yana, Kingston, Georgetownschool curriculum. He further committed that school dormitories would be maintained.Meanwhile, Education Minister Nicolette Henry highlighted the need to implement objectives and policies that would improve on this year’s results at the Caribbean Secondary Examination Certificate (CSEC) and National Grade Six Assessment (NGSA). She said that Education Month allowed time and opportunity for the Ministry to engage all of its stakeholders – teachers, parents, students, organisations and the general public.“We will galvanise our resources to showcase education whether it be through fairs, rallies, radio, television programmes and social media,” she highlighted.Minister Henry, however, added that there should be more feedback among the stakeholders, and told the gathering that this would strengthen the Ministry’s strategies and systems. She further outlined some of the measures slated to improve access to education.“The overarching priorities for the Ministry of Education for this new academic year will see us focusing on reducing the disparity in education by making sure all schools are working to the same high standard. The Government of Guyana has a principled objective of its public policy to strengthen the administration of the 10 regions and to improve the delivery of education and other public services,” she explained.As part of that policy, the Minister noted that there would be the establishing of regional technical institutes to provide access to technical education for a greater number of the country’s young people.The gathering also heard that the National Centre for Educational Resource Development (NCERD) and Cyril Potter College of Education (CPCE) will spearhead programmes that will see additional and enhanced use of technology in the nation’s classrooms.The observances and festivities that are associated with Education Month will conclude on October 5.last_img read more

FULL INVESTIGATION FOLLOWING DEATH OF FATHER-OF-TWO

first_imgTRAGEDY LATEST: This is the scene as a full investigation is started into the death of a Donegal building site worker this morning.Eamonn Bonner, from Doochary, died instantly when a crane touched overhead wires near Dunlewey. He was working nearby.Mr Bonner, who was in his early 40s and married with two young daughters, was working on a local water scheme at Meenaboll when the tragedy happened before 10am. Gardai and the emergency services spent most of today at the scene.The area has been sealed off as a full investigation is launched into exactly how the man died.Mr Bonner, from Molley Road, Doochary, was a very experienced construction worker.He had worked on construction sites in London during the boom times before returning to Donegal to work with local company Kilmac Construction. Tonight his wife Collette and two daughters were being comforted by family and friends in the small West Donegal village.A Garda spokesman said “It looks like a tragic accident at this stage. The man had been working in the area for a couple of days before the incident occurred early this morning.”Officials from the Health and Safety Authority are also understood to have arrived in the area to complete an investigation.Locals in Doochary were numbed by the tragedy.One said “Eamonn worked night and day and was always on the go. He was a real family man. He played football for Na Rossa when he was younger but he had stopped after he travelled to London to work. “All he lived for was his family and it’s terrible to think he won’t be able to see his little girls grow up now.”FULL INVESTIGATION FOLLOWING DEATH OF FATHER-OF-TWO was last modified: March 14th, 2012 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:crane-driverdeathDoocharyDunleweylast_img read more

ROADS WARNING AS SNOW HITS DONEGAL AHEAD OF MONSTER STORM

first_imgNeil and Daniel Doran in Derrybeg, Gweedore at 10pm enjoying the snow before bedtime.COUNTY council gritting lorries have been despatched across major roads in the county after snow falls in many parts of Donegal.It follows up to 3cms of snow in Mayo and Galway earlier.There had been snow in parts of Donegal on Friday morning. But as temperatures dropped again this evening, there has been more snow across the county, including in Glenties, Gaoth Dobhair, Letterkenny, Inishowen and Donegal Town.Driving conditions in many areas – including the Errigal Road in Dunlewey and the Barnesmore gap – are poor.A Garda spokesman appealed for drivers to take extreme care overnight.The snowfalls – although light – come ahead of a massive storm set to hit Donegal this weekend. The worst of it arrive around dawn, with high tides due around the same time.The Irish Coast Guard has again warned people to stay away from piers, harbours and coastal paths this weekend.It is also going to last longer than first thought; right through until 9pm on Sunday.Some forecasters believe the storm could be worse that first thought.Orange Alert Wind Warning for Munster, Leinster, Connacht, Donegal, Monaghan and CavanUpdate:During Saturday 1 February southwest winds, gradually veering westerly, will attain mean speeds of 65-75km/h gusting 110-130km/h countrywide.High seas generated by these winds, pressure much lower than normal, and higher than normal tides will combine to put Atlantic coasts under threat of flooding.Issued:Friday 31 January 2014 03:00Valid:Saturday 01 February 2014 03:00 to Saturday 01 February 2014 21:00 ROADS WARNING AS SNOW HITS DONEGAL AHEAD OF MONSTER STORM was last modified: February 1st, 2014 by John2Share 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:donegalsnowWarningweatherlast_img read more
