GDF Women’s Corp celebrates 52nd anniversary

first_img…women to be introduced in technical unitsThe Women’s Army Corps of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) on Friday celebrated 52 years since its establishment with a thanksgiving service at Camp Ayanganna, Thomas Lands, Georgetown.A section of the gathering during the ceremonyUnder the theme, “Celebrating our women, empowering them for total defence”, women across the military base were recognised for their contributions in the country.After hymns and prayers, the Chief-of-Staff, Brigadier Patrick West delivered remarks as he noted that the women’s arm has always functioned as a cohesive body ever since it was established. Throughout the past decades, it has been recognised in the male-dominated environment and matched the expectations.“You have to embrace the high standards of disciple that we have set for you and demand respect from all sectors of the force and society. You have to ensure to deliver at all times. You exhibit conduct that is beyond reproach and in keeping with the standards of the Force,” said West.He challenged the women of the force to seek educational gains in areas of technology, which is said to be dominant in the years to come. For women to be equally integrated as men, they need to act now on the opportunities which are available.“By 2020, there will be millions of technological jobs worldwide. At the current rate of students graduating with degrees in computer science and engineering, men will still outnumber women. It is up to you, therefore, to change the predictions. I challenge you to get into mathematics and technology. Break out of traditional roles and moulds that you have made.”The Chief-of-Staff noted that for the upcoming batch of women, special attention will be made to break these traditions and make it mandatory for them to explore fields in the technical areas.“I will start by breaking this tradition. I have instructed the Central Management Committee that the women who are recruited this year for training must be for the technical units.”To the women he said, “I want to remind you that you can chart your course for empowering yourself and the next generation of the Women’s Army Corps.”last_img read more

Wenger promises Sanchez, Ozil will be replaced by stars

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal reportedly agreed a fee for Sanchez with City on transfer deadline day, only for the deal to collapse after Wenger was unable to complete a move for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar. Photo/COURTESYLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 2 – Arsene Wenger moved to allay the fears of Arsenal fans on Tuesday saying he would replace both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil with world-class players should they end up leaving.Both Sanchez, who came close to moving to Manchester City on the final day of the last transfer window in August, and Ozil’s contracts are up at the end of the present season. Sanchez’s attitude and commitment to the club have been questioned by fans and some of his team-mates did not congratulate the 29-year-old Chilean after he scored a double in the 3-2 Premier League win over Crystal Palace last Thursday.Wenger, whose transfer dealings have been a sore point with sections of the Arsenal support, said he would also be on the look-out for players in the present transfer window.Mesut Ozil (left) talks to Arsene Wenger after joining Arsenal from Real Madrid in September 2013“We are open to any position for the exceptional player that can give us a plus. It depends a little bit on the injuries as well,” said the Arsenal manager on the eve of their match with reigning Premier League champions Chelsea.“On the other hand it depends if we manage to extend the contracts of the players who are at the end of their contracts in June.“It will depend on that as well. We have to take the consequences of those decisions and respond to it.“How we cope with that, first of all we have not lost them yet, and secondly we will respond to that by bringing in players of top quality.“This club has lost many, many big players and has always responded well.”Arsenal’s Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez celebrates scoring a penalty during the English Premier League match between Burnley and Arsenal at Turf Moor in Burnley on November 26, 2017However, the 68-year-old Frenchman refuted suggestions he was targeting Chelsea’s Brazil centre-back David Luiz or French international midfielder Thomas Lemar from Monaco.The failure to sign 22-year-old Lemar back in August led to the collapse of the Sanchez move to Manchester City.“I don’t want to think about any special names, but these reports are wrong,” said Wenger, whose side are currently fifth in the table, six points behind Liverpool in fourth but with a game in hand.As for catching runaway leaders City, Wenger said there is the slimmest glimmer of hope for their rivals given their two recent performances — a 1-0 win away at struggling Newcastle United and then a 0-0 draw on Sunday against relegation-threatened Crystal Palace.“They have shown signs of being less dominant,” said Wenger, whose side are 21 points behind City.“One of the teams behind need to have a perfect run and they (City) need to collapse a bit.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Iraqi probe finds Blackwater shooting toll higher, no provocation

first_imgBAGHDAD – An official Iraqi investigation into a deadly shooting involving Blackwater USA security guards raised the number of Iraqis killed to 17 and found the gunfire was unwarranted, the government said Sunday. It also said the shootings amounted to a deliberate crime and recommended those involved face trial. The Blackwater guards are accused of opening fire on Iraqi civilians in a main square in Baghdad on Sept. 16. They claimed they came under fire first. The Iraqi investigative committee, which was ordered by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, found that convoys from the Moyock, N.C.-based security company did not come under direct or indirect fire before the men shot up the intersection. “It was not hit even by a stone,” government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said in a statement. The Associated Press reported Thursday that the Iraqi panel’s recommendations also would include that the company compensate the victims. The Iraqi panel is one of at least three investigations involving Americans. The joint U.S.-Iraqi commission also met for the first time Sunday to review American security operations after the shooting. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has also dispatched a team to Baghdad, and retired veteran diplomat Stapleton Roy is leading a diplomatic review, along with a former State Department and intelligence official, Eric Boswell. The panel, led by Patrick Kennedy, one of the most senior management experts in the U.S. foreign service, was to present an interim report early this month. The Sept. 16 incident was one of at least six involving deaths allegedly caused by Blackwater that authorities here have brought to the attention of the Americans. The joint commission exchanged opinions about the shootings and agreed on a need to establish a direct mechanism for sharing information and to review several issues related to U.S. security operations, embassy spokeswoman Mirembe Nantongo said. The panel chaired by the Iraqi defense minister and U.S. Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission, Patricia A. Butenis, also expressed “mutual commitment of the Iraqi government and the U.S. government to work together to evaluate issues of safety and security related to personal security detail operations in Iraq,” according to a brief statement. The joint commission is expected to issue recommendations to both Baghdad and Washington on improving Iraqi and U.S. security procedures, with the “goal of ensuring that personal security detail operations do not endanger public safety” and prevent similar incidents in the future. Across the Iraqi capital, bombings killed at least nine Iraqis in three separate attacks, including one near Iran’s embassy, police said. The attacks started with an early morning explosion near a minibus carrying workers into central Baghdad. Three people were killed in the roadside bombing, which apparently targeted a police patrol, according to a police official who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. The inside of the mangled minibus was soaked in blood, the metal hulk was pummeled by shrapnel and the windows were shattered, AP Television News footage showed. A half-hour later, in the predominantly Sunni neighborhood of Dora in southern Baghdad, a second roadside bomb targeting a U.S. patrol missed its target, killing three Iraqi civilians, police said. And in the downtown commercial area of Salihiyah, a bomb planted in the back of a car parked near the Iranian Embassy exploded about 8:30 a.m., killing three Iraqi passers-by, according to police.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The incident has outraged Iraqis and brought calls for an overhaul to the rules governing private contractors such as Blackwater, which provides heavily armed security for U.S. diplomats serving in Baghdad. The three-member Iraqi panel led by Defense Minister Abdul-Qader al-Obeidi determined that Blackwater guards sprayed western Baghdad’s Nisoor Square with gunfire without provocation. The panel raised the casualty toll to 17 Iraqis killed and 23 wounded, as opposed to the 11 deaths Iraqi officials originally reported. On Thursday, Minister of State for National Security Sherwan al-Waili told The Associated Press that the panel had determined 13 Iraqis had been killed. A parallel but unofficial investigation by the Interior Ministry also put the number at 17. Al-Dabbagh said the Cabinet would weigh the Iraqi findings with those of a joint U.S.-Iraqi commission “and subsequently adopt the legal procedures to hold this company accountable.” last_img read more

Real Madrid 1-0 Man City: Los Blancos set up UCL final meeting with Atletico

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo, who missed the first leg at the Etihad with injury, returned for Real, while Yaya Toure was a surprise starter for the Citizens.The visitors were dealt a cruel blow in the opening ten minutes, when Kompany was forced off the field after picking up another problem – clutching the top of his leg.Their captain’s departure took the wind out of City’s sails, as Real Madrid set the tone of the game by dominating possession and they were handed a major let off when Ronaldo headed wide. The home side remained patient before taking the lead on 20 minutes. Gael Clichy allowed Dani Carvajal time and space before he slid the ball into the right-hand side of the box for Bale to run onto. The Welsh star, from an ambitious angle, arrowed a right-footed shot across the face of goal. With the help of a slight deflection off Fernando, Hart was beaten and the volume in the Bernabeu rocketed. It was nearly game over as Ramos had the ball in the back of the net, only for the referee to rule it out for offside. Toni Kroos’ set piece was floated into the six-yard and Pepe mishit a volley. It fell to Ramos who converted from close range. As Real continued to press for a second, City nearly levelled before the break when Fernandinho cut inside from the left flank, striking past Keylor Navas into the outside of the post – City’s best chance of the match. Once the second half restarted, it was one-way traffic and Man City had Hart to thank for remaining in with a chance of nicking a goal. The England shot stopper first denied Luka Modric and then Ronaldo on two more occasions. The Portuguese forward headed straight at Hart from close range before Ronaldo’s low effort from the edge of the box was gathered. Bale nearly made it two shortly after the hour mark when he rose highest to send a header crashing against the post. As the home side kept the pressure on, the ball was launched back into the box and Ronaldo, in an offside position, punched the ball into the back of the net and he was fortunate to escape a booking. The sluggish Yaya Toure and Jesus Navas were withdrawn as Raheem Sterling and Kelechi Iheanacho were sent on with the task of netting an away goal. Real were fortunate not to be reduced to ten men as Lucas Vazquez put in a nasty challenge on Sterling (below), only receiving a booking from referee Damir Skomina.City saw their European dream slide away with an overall disappointing performance. Kevin De Bruyne tried to nick it late on with a low, cheeky free-kick at the near post from a tight angle, beating Navas but sending the ball into the side netting. On 89 minutes, Sergio Aguero showed his frustration as he fizzed a dipping shot just over the bar and City crash out at the last four after the biggest match in their history.  The only goal came after 20 minutes when Gareth Bale’s effort deflected off Fernando and past Joe Hart 3 3center_img 3 Real Madrid booked their place in the Champions League final to face rivals Atletico after beating Manchester City 1-0 at the Bernabeu. Former Real boss Manuel Pellegrini will be disappointed with the way his side crashed out of the competition, after a poor performance in the Spanish capital, with his side mustering just one shot on target.The victory puts Zinedine Zidane on for an impressive first season in charge of the ten-time European Cup winners. After a goalless first leg, the only goal of this semi final came in the first half, as Vincent Kompany went off with injury and the home side capitalised on City’s defensive fratilities ten minutes later, Gareth Bale’s shot deflecting off Fernando and past Joe Hart.Zidane’s Real will meet Diego Simeone’s Atletico at the San Siro on May 28. WATCH: All the goals and important highlights from Real Madrid v Manchester Citylast_img read more

DONEGAL CRUISE PAST ARMAGH IN ULSTER CHAMPIONSHIP CLASH

first_imgSOME pundits reckoned Donegal could come unstuck against Armagh today, but it turns out we had nothing to worry about.Rory Gallagher’s team were never troubled here at the Athletic Grounds in Armagh City as they cruised to a 2-11 to 0-08 victory.The nine point winning margin didn’t flatter Donegal – it could have been more. Paddy McBrearty and Martin O’Reilly were the goal scorers on the day.But it was captain fantastic Michael Murphy who was our man of the match, leading from the front, he was all over the park, winning the ball, and when he was needed, popping over five points from super frees.Even when Armagh did go forward and went for goals, they came up against the brilliant Paul Durcan whose second half one-handed save was sheer class.Having put Armagh to the sword in the first half, there was no real contest in the second half as Donegal killed the game. Donegal play Derry on June 27 in the Ulster Championship semi-final.If Gallagher can keep this team playing like this, it might just be a lovely long summer ahead for Donegal football fans. DONEGAL CRUISE PAST ARMAGH IN ULSTER CHAMPIONSHIP CLASH was last modified: June 15th, 2015 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:armaghbrilliantdonegallast_img read more

South Africa’s first woman police chief

first_img13 June 2012 President Jacob Zuma has appointed South Africa’s first female national police commissioner, Mangwashi Victoria Phiyega, to replace Bheki Cele, who has been fired after a presidential board of inquiry found him unfit for office. Phiyega has been serving as chairperson of the Presidential Review Committee on State-Owned Enterprises, and deputy chair of the Independent Commission for the Remuneration of Public Office Bearers.‘Wealth of experience as senior executive’ “Ms Phiyega brings a wealth of experience as a senior executive who understands the responsibility of government in the fight against crime and the duties imposed in dealing with state assets,” Zuma told a press briefing in Pretoria on Tuesday. “I have every confidence that she will show leadership and acquit herself well as national commissioner.” Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa welcomed Phiyega’s appointment, saying she brought with her a “wealth of experience on strategic leadership and a sound management background, both from public service and the private sector”. This experience would “stand her in good stead as she steers the South African Police Service [SAPS] towards better compliance, systems integration, effective and greater accountability,” Mthethwa said.Cele ‘unfit for office’ In September last year, Zuma appointed a board of inquiry, chaired by Justice Jakes Moloi, to investigate alleged misconduct by Cele and pronounce on his fitness for office. “The board has found General Cele to be unfit for office and has recommended his removal from office in terms of the provisions of section 8(6)(b)(v) of the South African Police Service Act No. 68 of 1995,” Zuma said. “Having thoroughly considered the report of the board, and applied my mind thereto, I have decided to release General Cele from his duties.” Zuma said that Cele still had a lot to contribute to South Africa, adding that crime levels in the country had continued to drop under his tenure.Improving management, financial, security systems “However, the reports of the Public Protector and that of the board of inquiry indicate deficiencies administratively and in particular in relation to General Cele’s duties as an accounting officer,” Zuma said. Zuma said he had had a discussion with Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa about “what needs to be corrected immediately within the SAPS so that we can continue the excellent record of fighting crime”. This included management and financial systems as well as the breaches of information security which, Zuma said, had “unfortunately become common”. “We have in the past few weeks witnessed a disappointing spectacle of police officers jeopardising state security by placing information in the public domain, in contravention of their oath of office. This is unacceptable and cannot be tolerated if the fight against crime is to continue being effective.” Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Ohio’s Crop Progress Report – May 23rd, 2016

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest While some growers in the northern part of the State were able to begin planting due to warmer weather, most growers throughout the rest of the State continued to delay planting as their fields were too wet for planting activities, according to Cheryl Turner, Ohio State Statistician of the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. There were 2.8 day suitable for fieldwork for the week ending May 22nd. While corn and soybean planting progress moved somewhat, both are behind the five year averages. There were frosts early in the week, which raised concern about damage to wheat, fruit, and vegetables, as well as the emerged early planted corn and soybeans. Emerged corn is looking yellow and stressed, and some will need to be replanted if the weather cooperates. Hay fields were being chopped across the state, though much of it for haylage, as conditions made it too difficult for dry hay baling. Other activities included tillage, spraying, and fertilizer application.Read the entire report herelast_img read more

Sounds like a great way to get a deal on meat and other perishable foods that we can eat or freeze for later!Best-by: This is the consumer date to consume for best quality of this product.Not sure when you opened your condiments? Just guess for now. After cleaning and reorganizing your fridge, one great way to keep track of your food is to mark with a sharpie the date you opened it.
