Abridal shower outing turned deadly for one of six friends on Saturday evening after the car they were travelling in veered out of control and slammed into the recently renovated bridge at Liliendaal Railway Embankment, Greater Georgetown.Dead is 36-year-old Debra Pompey, an employee attached to Medicare Pharmacy and of Lot 473 Belle West Housing Scheme, Canal Number Two Polder, West Bank Demerara. Her sister, Tushanna Hubbard, 26, is among those injured andPublic-spirited persons helping to remove the injured women from the vehiclecurrently hospitalised at the Georgetown Public Hospital.The others have been identified as Rodlyn Grace, 20, of Lot 74 Blyzeight Gardens, Greater Georgetown; Shameica Martin, 18, of Lot 84 Sideline Dam, Beterverwagting, East Coast Demerara; Saskiya Boyer, 30, of Lot 228 Lodge, Georgetown, and Petona Welcome, 27, of Lot 391 Austin Street, Campbellville, Georgetown.According to reports received, the accident occurred around 23:40h as the group of six women were heading home from a night out at the Giftland Mall. Guyana Times understands that one of the friends was getting married this coming weekend.After partying, the women left the Mall and were heading to Georgetown, with Welcome behind the wheel of the silver-grey motor car, bearing registration number PSS 7195.“(They were) proceeding west along the southern driveway allegedly at a fast rate when she lost control of the vehicle, which collided with the southern rail of the Liliendaal Bridge,” Police said in a statement on Sunday.They noted too that the driver was tested and found to be above the legal blood alcohol limit. Welcome, who suffered a fractured left arm, was treated and discharged from the Hospital. She is currently in custody assisting with the investigation.The car belonged to a 28-year-old resident of Princes and Chapel Streets, Lodge.Pompey’s young sister remains hospitalised, nursing two broken legs. The injured woman related to this newspaper from her hospital bed that they had gone out to celebrate her best friend’s bridal shower. They were at an entertainment spot at the Giftland Mall and had left to go home when the accident occurred.“We were leaving and while on the East Coast, all I really recall is that the driver swerve and that was it,” Hubbard stated. She is expected to undergo surgery some time this week.Meanwhile, the mother of the two sisters, Jennifer Clyne, told reporters that her two daughters left to go out with their friends and around midnight, she got a call about the accident.“I thought they (daughters) were calling me to open the door for them, so I didn’t look at the number, I just answered and walk to the door. But then a guy came on and say that my daughter was in an accident and break her foot,” the woman recalled.She continued that she did not wait for the person to say anything more, she immediately left to go to the Hospital. However, by the time they arrived at the medical institution in the city, it was too late as Pompey had already died.Clyne added that she only observed a broken ankle on one of the feet of her eldest daughter, noting that they were awaiting a post-mortem examination to determine the cause of death. This is expected to be conducted today.
EarthFirst Canada, the company responsible for the Dokie 1 Wind Project near Hudson’s Hope, has announced today it has obtained creditor protection.The company cites struggling global markets as the reason for their financial woes, saying the current crisis has rendered Earthfirst unable to find financial backers or to complete a sale of the company.EarthFirst sought the protection after it determined it did not have the funds to meet its current obligations, which include the construction of the Dokie 1 Wind Energy Project just 40 kilometres from Hudson’s Hope, a 144MW project which was due to be completed in late 2009. – Advertisement -The company has been granted a 30-day stay from their financial obligations, but must present a Plan of Arrangement to the courts before the stay ends on December 4th. If this plan is not approved by stakeholders, the company may be placed into receivership or bankruptcy.For now, the company will continue its operations under a court-appointed monitor. In the long run, however, EarthFirst says it’s exploring several options, including a sale of the company.
As Heritage Month commences…uncertainty of political climate affects progress countrywide – former APA PresidentThe uncertainty of the political atmosphere in Guyana is having direct adverse effects on the livelihoods of Guyana’s Indigenous people and has resulted in their rights being trampled upon and ignored.Toshao Mario Hastings of Kako Village, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni)As such, they are calling for elections to be held so as to address the problems that are affecting Indigenous communities throughout the length and breadth of Guyana.This is according to Toshao of Kako Village, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni), Mario Hastings, who made the disclosure at the ceremonial launch for Indigenous Heritage Month on behalf of the National Toshaos Council (NTC) on Sunday afternoon.He stated that although Indigenous peoples from all parts of the country have and continue to contribute to the sustainable development of the nation, the present legislative laws in relation to their rights were in dire need of amendment.However, such changes are at a standstill because of the current political atmosphere, and as a result, there is much uneasiness among Indigenous peoples with regard to sustaining their livelihoods.“There is yet a long way to go and much more to be done to curb the many disadvantages that we face on a daily basis. We need quality education and improved health services… our many roads need improvement; social and legal services are still missing, for most part, in our communities and hence access to justice is at a low end. We are uncertain of our political landscape, and call for elections to be held soonest so that we can return to normalcy,” Hastings declared.According to the Toshao, many of the Indigenous communities are highly vulnerable to the “land grabs” and there is the pressing problem of some of their lands not yet being recognised and being without land titles.“And official demarcation and our claims for land extension move at an unacceptably slow pace. We need our land – our land is our life. The Indigenous peoples of Guyana need to become more and fully engaged in all developmental projects, programmes, and policies that will affect us,” he said.Hastings pointed out that although many Indigenous people enjoy the freedom of their land and other resources, this is in jeopardy, especially since pollution and despoiling of their waters continued unabated.He further explained that the Administration needed to do much more to ensure that Indigenous communities were informed about development initiatives that would not only impact the country but directly affect their livelihoods.He noted that to date, Indigenous peoples across Guyana are suffering from poverty and lack of opportunities in addition to bearing the brunt of discrimination and derogatory remarks.Despite the challenges that Indigenous peoples presently face, they still are trying their best to promote their traditional knowledge, and promote the further development of Guyana.This year’s Indigenous Heritage Month is being celebrated under the theme “Maintaining our traditional practices while promoting a green economy”.Hastings added that this was another opportunity for Indigenous peoples to celebrate their rich heritage, practices, and reflect on significant contributions towards national development such as conservation and stewardship of the environment, the value in carbon stocks, biodiversity, and landscape.
The 28-year-old had agreed to leave Nantes in France for Cardiff in the Premier League for a reported £15 million (17 million euros; $19.3 million) last month.“For me it feels special,” the 1.87m-tall Argentine forward had said of his new career.An imposing physical presence but also adept with his feet, Sala was leaving Ligue 1 having scored 12 goals this season.– Little known back home –That tally also matched his statistics for each of the last two campaigns, and only a certain Lionel Messi has scored more goals this season among Argentine players in the big five European leagues.Despite that, Sala never played for his country and remained little known back in his homeland — an article on the website of popular sports daily Ole last month carried a headline: “Who is Emiliano Sala?”That is because, like many talented young footballers in Argentina, Sala left for Europe at such a young age.Sala left his native Argentina for Europe when he joined Bordeaux in 2010 © AFP/File / LOIC VENANCEBorn in the province of Santa Fe, Sala developed as a player at Proyecto Crecer (Growth Project), an academy based in the town of San Francisco, four hours north of the capital Buenos Aires.The academy has a partnership with Bordeaux, and Sala was one of a handful of players to have gone from there to the French side. Another, midfielder Valentin Vada, is currently in their first-team squad.Having joined Bordeaux aged 20 in 2010, Sala never really broke into their first team, but he had prolific spells on loan in the French lower leagues, including at Niort in Ligue 2.After another loan stint at Ligue 1 side Caen, Sala was sold to Nantes in 2015 and quickly became a fan favourite for his performances in the famous yellow shirt of the Canaries.Despite Sala’s importance to Nantes, he was keen to move on, and club president Waldemar Kita was keen to cash in on a player whose contract was due to expire in 2020.Having finally put pen to paper on his move to Cardiff, Sala was back at Nantes’ Joneliere training base to collect his belongings and wave goodbye to his former teammates before departing for Wales again on what proved to be his doomed flight.hap-adc-as-dj0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Emiliano Sala in action for Nantes earlier this season © AFP/File / SEBASTIEN SALOM GOMISNantes, France, Feb 8 – He was born in Argentina, made his name in France but lost his life over the English Channel on his way to play for a Welsh club.On Thursday, it was confirmed that a body recovered by British investigators from the submerged wreckage of a plane that went down in the Channel was that of footballer Emiliano Sala.
Can’t Pay Won’t Pay will ask the public to bin their bills at a major protest against water charges in Letterkenny next month.Spokesperson Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig said that with Irish Water bills due fromApril 1st, they want to give people the opportunity to come together in a public show of strength to say that we will not be paying their charges.“We will be asking people to bring their bills and take part in a mass binning to show that they do not accept being asked to pay a second time for water.” “We have heard very little in recent weeks about the numbers who have registered with Irish Water. There is no doubt that if the numbers looked good for Irish Water, then we would have heard all about it from government sources. The reality is that a massive boycott is already underway. We are planning this demonstration to build the boycott and to give people the confidence to defy Irish Water.“If huge numbers of people do not pay the charges, it will not be possible to pursue them all. It should also be remembered that the only sanction for non-payment applies a full 12 months after you do not pay. It is open to question whether the government will have the political will to pursue so many non payers in the run-up to a general election. If they do, they will meet strong and determined resistance.”The protest will take place on April 25th and by then many people should be in possession of their Irish Water bills.“We are calling on all those who intend not to pay the charges to make their way to Letterkenny and send the message to Irish Water and the government that no matter what they do, we will not pay.” ‘CAN’T PAY WON’T PAY’ TO BIN WATER BILLS AT MARCH NEXT MONTH was last modified: March 11th, 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)
1 Mohamed Salah Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Mohamed Salah will bring the speed he needs to make the squad more effective.Last season, when shorn of the services of Sadio Mane and Daniel Sturridge because of injury, the Reds looked one-paced and easy to defend against.However, with his first major foray into the summer market, Klopp has sought to address that by bringing in the pacy Egypt international from Roma.“Even if people didn’t know too much about him, they (must have) watched a few videos and they are impressive. He is a fantastic player, with speed,” Klopp told liverpoolfc.com.“We said after last season there are a few things we would try to involve in an already really good squad. One of the things is speed, being kind of a finisher, preparing chances, making goals and all that stuff. He brings all this in.“He is a naturally fit boy – he can run as quick and as long as he wants. I’m really looking forward to (working with him).”Salah is not expected to join up with his new team-mates until next week but teenager Ben Woodburn, who last season became the youngest goalscorer in the club’s history, is set to feature this weekend.The 17-year-old sustained a calf injury training with the Wales senior squad last month, but after returning early to work with the club’s rehabilitation coaches, he will now join in full sessions.“He is now expected to join his team-mates in full training this weekend as preparations for next Wednesday’s friendly meeting with Tranmere Rovers continue,” said a Liverpool statement.Liverpool’s hopes of persuading RB Leipzig to part with highly-rated midfielder Naby Keita have been dealt another blow after sporting director Ralf Rangnick said even a world-record bid of £100m would not persuade them, despite reports the Guinea international wants to leave.“None of our players has an exit clause this season, there is no pain limit – even in the three-digit (£100m) range,” he said during a press conference.“We will not give (sell) a regular player and it does not matter if someone says he does not know where to play next season. It’s enough if we know it.”

A SEWAGE treatment plant in Moville is seriously polluting the river Bredagh, the Environmental Protection Agency said today.The EPA said half of the country’s water treatment facilities do not meet national or EU standards.The EPA said the level of performance is poor and needs to improve and further investment is required to change the way these plants are operated and maintained. The findings highlight the challenges facing the Government, which plans to create a body to take over the provision of water from local authorities as part of its proposals for water charges.
