GECOM’s CEO hospitalised following suspected heart attack

first_imgOn the heels of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) being ordered to start preparations for the holding of General and Regional Elections this year, Chief Elections Officer (CEO) Keith Lowenfield has been hospitalised.According to reports, he was admitted on Tuesday at the Caribbean Heart Institute located in the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) compound. Doctors believe Lowenfield suffered a heart attack as a result of high blood pressure.GECOM’s Public Relations Officer Yolanda Warde confirmed that the Chief Elections Officer was taken to the hospital. She disclosed that Lowenfield is currently on seven days medical leave.Chief Elections Officer Keith LowenfieldWhile she could not say what the nature of his illness is, Warde did relate, however, that Lowenfield is said to be in a stable condition and is currently undergoing a series of routine tests.The Chief Elections Officer’s hospitalisation comes at a time when GECOM had been instructed to start preparations for polls sometime this year.Over the past week, Lowenfield has been leading the elections secretariat at GECOM to ascertain the body’s preparedness to host elections within the constitutional 90-day deadline, which was effected following the December 21, 2018 passage of the No-confidence Motion.However, after much deliberations, which were a stalemate at most times, the seven-member Commission last week decided that elections cannot be held by the March deadline due to insufficient funds and subsequently indicated same to President David Granger.However, in a response letter to GECOM’s Chairman, retired Justice James Patterson, dated February 25, 2019, the Head of State ordered the body to commence elections preparations.“The Government of Guyana is committed to doing everything possible to ensure that the Commission is provided with the financial resources and has sufficient time to conduct credible elections,” the missive from the Head of State to the GECOM Chairman states.To this end, President Granger indicated that Government will approach the National Assembly for funding to host the upcoming polls.Lowenfield was appointed Chief Elections Officer and Commissioner of National Registration back in 2014.The CEO plays the key leadership role in the secretariat of GECOM, with responsibility for implementing all aspects of its operations, particularly the conduct of elections, and ensuring that results achieved are consistent with the laws of Guyana and the policies determined by the Commission.The CEO will be the Commission’s primary point of contact for the staff of the secretariat, whose activities include the registration of registrants, the distribution of identification cards; the provision of information and guidance on electoral operational matters to community organisations and other stakeholders.The CEO will also be required to represent the Commission’s policies and activities in interactions with stakeholders and other interest groups, including political parties, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), donor and international agencies, in matters relating directly to the operations of GECOM.last_img read more

Cameron lifts Highlanders

first_imgWalnut (19-6-1) tied the score in the 55th minute on a Brittany Seamen goal, and had several quality opportunities thereafter. Royal freshman goalkeeper Heather Haney turned away numerous chances, highlighted by a diving save on an attempt by Bailey Esquivel in the 63rd minute and a stop on Nadia Link before the final whistle. – Sean Ceglinsky Westlake 3, South Hills 1: Pepperdine-bound forward Kylie McDonald scored two goals in her third consecutive postseason game for wild-card entry Westlake (12-2-8), which received the winning goal from Nicole Gilbert in the 78thminute in the Div. II win over the host Huskies (19-4-3). Hart 4, Irvine 1: Sarina Coutin, Meghan Dean, Lindsay Mills and Aubrie Smith scored for the No. 2 Indians (24-3-1), who tied the program record for wins in a season with the Div.II second-round victory. Kristin Cameron was determined not to let her teammates down Tuesday. The Royal High of Simi Valley junior scored in the 20th minute and was fouled in the penalty box in the second half, setting up Sinead Vaughn’s penalty kick in the 73rd minute, as the host Highlanders defeated Walnut 2-1 in a second-round match of the Southern Section Div. II girls’ soccer playoffs. “I told her play fast because I didn’t think they would be able to catch her on the run,” Royal coach Scott Cameron said. “If they don’t catch her from behind and pound her to the ground, then she scores that goal. They were going to make her earn it.” The Highlanders (14-3-6), who play Thursday at Hart of Newhall (24-3-1), nearly added another goal in the 75th minute when Jackie Brown’s 25-yard shot flew just over the crossbar. center_img DIVISION V Oaks Christian 7, Bell Gardens 1: Kelsea Smith had two goals and four assists, setting a program record for most points in a playoff game, to lead host Oaks Christian of Westlake Village (14-6-1) to the quarterfinals for the sixth straight year. Caroline Cislo also scored twice for the Lions. DIVISION VI Desert Christian/Lancaster 7, Marshall 0: Robyn Estrada had a hat trick – giving her 35 goals – and Kristyn Richards scored three times for the top-seeded Knights (21-1-2) in the second-round win at Lancaster National Soccer Center. Viewpoint 3, Laguna Blanca 0: Harley Joffe, Ida Shahmoradi and Gabriella Capisani scored for No. 3 Viewpoint of Calabasas (17-3-3) in the second-round home win. CITY SECTION PLAYOFFS Granada Hills 7, Eagle Rock 0: By the middle of the second half, Ashley Hill was on the sidelines with an ice pack wrapped around her left thigh. That appeared to be all that could cool the Granada Hills High junior forward, who recorded her second consecutive hat trick in a victory over visiting Eagle Rock in the second round of the City Section girls’ soccer playoffs. Hill’s three goals give her seven in the past two games for the No. 6 Highlanders (12-5-5), who have scored 14 goals in the first two rounds. Anna Osvaldsson started the scoring against No. 22 Eagle Rock (14-5-1) in the 29th minute, finally getting a shot past Eagles starting goalkeeper Lindsey Zuber, who denied several early attempts. Hill’s breakaway score in the 38th minute gave Granada Hills a 2-0 lead. Gina Kecskes, Rebecca Lin and Hill combined for four goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half. Melissa Fernandez also added a goal. “Once we start playing as a team, we can break any defense,” Hill said. “It should start getting tougher, but as long as we stick together and stay focused we’ll be OK.” – Heather Gripp El Camino Real 2, Taft 1: Jessica Stadheim’s goal off a Sasha Scott corner kick in the 65th minute lifted top-seeded El Camino Real of Woodland Hills to its 28th consecutive playoff victory, outlasting No. 16 Taft of Woodland Hills (11-12-4). Michelle Oakes gave ECR (17-2-4) the lead in the 38th minute, but Morgan Bilger tied the score in the 42nd minute with her first career goal. Taft continued to apply pressure early in the second half, before Megan Quinn switched the momentum in the Conquistadores’ favor, leading to Scott’s corner-kick opportunity. “Once the other team scores on us, we just play harder,” Quinn said. “I wasn’t going to let this team down. I wasn’t going to let this team lose.” – Jim Shelburne Chatsworth 8, North Hollywood 0: Mary Patterson scored twice for No. 8 Chatsworth (9-9-3), which advanced to Thursday’s quarterfinals at rival El Camino Real. Sylmar 4, Fremont 1: Carol Martinez scored her area-leading 41st goal and Jennifer Alverez, Mary Gaitan and Natali Martinez added goals for the No. 2 Spartans (28-2), who won their 25th straight game. San Pedro 5, Birmingham 3 (2 OT): Vanessa Carr had two goals and an assist, Stephanie Cubias scored a goal and Daisy Alvarenga had two assists for 12th-seeded Birmingham of Lake Balboa (12-7-3). 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Senate passes water-project bill with $2 billion for California

first_imgThe administration says it opposes both the House and Senate bills because they are too expensive, assign the projects to the Corps of Engineers outside its main missions and increase the federal cost-share for many projects. But Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe, the top Republican on the Environment and Public Works Committee and one of the Senate’s more conservative members, said the bill is crucial because two-thirds of all consumer goods pass through harbors maintained by the Corps of Engineers. The nearly 12,000 miles of inland and intracoastal waterways include 192 commercially active lock and dam sites. More than half of those sites are at least 50 years old and need major rehabilitation, he said. Larry Schweiger, president and chief executive of the National Wildlife Federation, said “the most stunning aspect of the bill” involves changes ordered for the Corps of Engineers, including requiring independent review of larger projects and modernizing agency planning procedures. “This agency has been stuck in the 19th century for too long and as a result has run amok with pork-barrel spending and poorly planned projects,” he said. Schweiger expressed regret that the Senate on Tuesday rejected proposals to require the corps to consider global warming in planning flood- and storm-damage-prevention projects, and a commission on prioritizing projects. Taxpayer groups and environmentalists point out the corps has a backlog of $58 billion in unstarted projects that would, at a spending rate of about $2 billion a year, take decades to clear.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The upper Mississippi and Illinois River area would get $1.95 billion for seven new locks and $1.7 billion for ecosystem restoration. The watchdog group Taxpayers for Common Sense said it had counted 438 earmarks, or lawmaker-requested projects, in the bill and estimated the total cost at $14.9 billion, rather than the $13.9 billion figure quoted by Senate sponsors. According to the organization’s breakdown, which does not include projects whose dollar amount is unclear, the bill specifies total costs of more than $2 billion for projects in California and $2 billion for Florida. The bill enjoys wide popularity in Congress. A similar one passed the House last month on a 394-25 vote. But such legislation has had trouble passing in recent years because of criticism of past operations and charges that the measure is full of pork-barrel spending. The original water project law, passed in 1986, envisioned renewal every two years. But the last bill to clear Congress was in 2000. WASHINGTON – A $14 billion bill passed Wednesday by the Senate would improve navigation on the upper Mississippi, help restore the Louisiana coast and authorize hundreds of projects that senators sought for their states. The Water Resources Development Act, approved 91-4, also takes steps to assure that the Army Corps of Engineers, responsible for federal water projects, bases its work on sound economics and science. Corps projects have a history of being tainted by waste and abuse. The bill is “about making sure that the water infrastructure in this country is up to the task that it faces,” said Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., who leads the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. About one-fourth of the authorized money, some $3.5 billion, would go to Katrina-damaged Louisiana. last_img read more

Iniesta to leave Barca at the end of the season

first_img0Shares0000A tearful Andres Iniesta has announced he is leaving Barcelona after 22 years associated with the club© AFP Pau BarrenaBARCELONA, Spain, Apr 27 – Andres Iniesta has confirmed he will leave Barcelona at the end of the season after 22 years associated with the club.In a press conference attended by members of the first team and the club’s board on Friday, Iniesta said he wanted to finish at Barca “feeling useful, feeling important and still winning titles”. Iniesta is expected to continue his career in China but says his next move is yet to be finalised. The 33-year-old reiterated, however, he would never play against Barcelona.After joining Barca’s academy, La Masia, aged 12, Iniesta blossomed into one of the Catalans’ greatest ever players, winning four Champions League and eight La Liga titles, and lifting the World Cup with Spain.Struggling to hold back the tears, Iniesta said: “I understand that in the near future I will not be able to give the best of myself in all senses, both physically and mentally.“If I had imagined finishing my career here, it would have been like this, feeling useful, feeling important and still winning titles.“It’s a very difficult day for me because I’ve been here all my life and to say goodbye to my home and my life here is very hard.”Iniesta’s short speech was greeted by applause and the congratulations are likely to continue on Sunday, when he can collect his ninth La Liga title. Barcelona need only a point against Deportivo La Coruna to be crowned champions.It would secure a domestic double in Iniesta´s farewell campaign, after a thumping win over Sevilla clinched the Copa del Rey last weekend.In what was his last cup final with Barca, Iniesta capped a typically elegant performance at the Wanda Metropolitano with a wonderful finish, shimmying past goalkeeper David Soria and tapping in his 57th club goal, on his 669th appearance.He would not be short of offers this summer from the world’s elite clubs but Iniesta said that to avoid facing Barca, he will not be staying in Europe.“There are things to talk about, things to finalise,” Iniesta said.“The only thing I have always said is I would never compete against my club so all scenarios that are not in Europe are possible.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

McLeish said: “James has been an integral member of the Scotland national team since his debut back in 2010.“We will miss James but we fully respect and understand his need to manage his body as he approaches the latter stages of his career.“I know that James had his heart set on reaching the coveted 50-cap mark, so for him to retire from international football must have been an extremely difficult decision to make.“His goal against Germany will serve as one of a number of highlights in his international career.

I have debated long and hard about this decision and I feel the only way for me to be able to maintain my fitness in order to continue to play at the top level is to retire from international football.”McArthur, who hit four goals for his country, added: “I would like to thank all the coaches, staff and fellow players with whom I have shared my Scotland career. It has been an honour.“I wish Alex McLeish and his team every success in the future.”The news comes on top of recent blows for McLeish, who could be without strikers Leigh Griffiths and Steven Naismith for the Nations League deciders against Albania and Israel next month.Griffiths pulled out of the last squad to work on his fitness but has been missing for Celtic through illness ever since, while Hearts forward Naismith went off early in his side’s Betfred Cup defeat by the holders on Sunday after experiencing problems with a knee.

GOVT MUST ADDRESS ‘SYSTEMIC’ BRITISH COLLUSION – MacLOCHLAINN

first_imgSinn Féin TD Pádraig Mac Lochlainn says the government has a moral and constitutional responsibility to address the ‘brutal legacy’ of the British Government’s collusion policy.Padraig Mac Lochlainn TDThe Inishowen TD was speaking in the Dáil following Monday’s RTE’s Primetime documentary on collusion between the British Government and the security forces.Deputy Mac Lochlainn said “For families who have been victims of collusion, the past 12 months have been very difficult. They have had long court battles, and the truth is finally starting to come out. Recent publications and documentaries have exposed the scale of collusion between British State forces and unionist paramilitaries. “There was much debate on Monday night during the PrimeTime documentary on whether collusion was in fact ‘systemic’. Let us be clear. There is no doubt that collusion was systemic.“Collusion was a deliberate policy that was designed to use unionist paramilitaries as a method of killing Irish citizens or, indeed, anyone who got in their way — those in opposition to the state. There was a particular focus on Irish republicans and nationalists.”He added that he wanted to reiterate what his Sinn Féin colleagues in the Assembly said on Monday in paying tribute to the families who suffered as a result of this collusion.The relentless work of these families and advocacy groups to expose the extent of the collusion and the subsequent cover ups is tremendous, he said. “In particular, I would like to draw attention to the work of Eddie Fullerton’s family. Eddie was a victim of collusion between the British state and the UDA. The Fullerton family has demonstrated remarkable courage and huge dignity.“Despite the deep hurt caused to the family by the events that occurred and the dismissive attitudes of state authorities during that period, they have been relentless in their campaign for the truth.“The Irish Government now has a moral and constitutional responsibility to finally and fully address the brutal legacy of the British Government’s collusion policy.”GOVT MUST ADDRESS ‘SYSTEMIC’ BRITISH COLLUSION – MacLOCHLAINN was last modified: June 18th, 2015 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:CollusionDeputy Padraig MacLochlainnPrimetimeRTElast_img read more
