By on January 20, 2020

first_img MORE THAN A PARTNER Digicel Jamaica CEO, David Butler, said: “This man obviously has a very unique understanding of speed around the world; we are hoping some of that will rub off on us in terms of our customers, in terms of our networks, our products and our market.” Butler, while congratulating Bolt on another sprint double at the recent Rio Games, said the Jamaican was more than a “partner, but a friend” of Digicel. “Many congratulations for Rio, we are really proud to be associated with you for so long, you’ve been a great friend, partner, and thank you very much from Digicel,” he said. The Bolt-Digicel contract began 13 years ago, with the nine-time Olympic gold medallist and fastest man ever over 100 and 200 metres earmarked to work with Digicel in a charity-based capacity. He will be giving back through their future speed academies and mentorship programmes and will hopefully help uncover the next superstar. “We are absolutely delighted to have you here, in terms of us in the Digicel Jamaica business, and for Digicel across the world as well,” pointed out John Suranyi, CEO, Digicel Play Caribbean. – S.Fairman.

According to Digicel, Bolt has the partnership “for life”. His main responsibility will be to ensure customers have the latest devices and fastest technology. This makes Bolt more than Digicel’s leading brand ambassador and his new job as chief speed officer will come with a fully equipped office named The Usain Bolt Speed Lab, also located at the organisation. “Number one in the world – I am really looking forward to working with you, looking forward to it, trust me, I am excited,” Bolt remarked. “I am ready, got a new job, I am ready. It’s gonna be great for sure, great partnership. You guys are like family. I am ready,” reiterated the world’s fastest man. He also visited the customer service department, spoke with customers and rapped with Digicel staff.

AG hints at plans to split SOCU from Police

By on January 17, 2020

first_img– observers question “ulterior motive”Eyebrows are being raised over a recent indication by Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams that the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) could very well be separated from the Guyana Police Force (GPF) despite his Cabinet colleague, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan’s recent announcement that the Unit would be governed by the Standing Orders of the Force and its head would report to the Police Commissioner.Williams, during a Tuesday morning press conference at his Chambers, said that he sought to assure that Government would ensure SOCU did only what it was established to do, that is fight financial crimes in keeping with globally-established Anti-Money Laundering and Countering of Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) laws, which Guyana also enacted.SOCUThe AG said although the Unit was under the purview of the Public Security Ministry, it was a creature of the country’s AML/CFT laws and, therefore, it should not be considered to be performing Police work.“It is important for us, because SOCU has been very busy, very up and about and it’s very important for it to perform its core functions related to AML/CFT and not be burdened with other Police work. Because we don’t want to be accused of doing other things… or that it is an attempt for us to stymie the operations of the agency and strain any progress,” he told the press.SOCU independentWilliams said that the idea was to have SOCU operate in a similar manner to the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU), as a specialised agency.“So SOCU is a specialised agency and we have to work out – nothing has come to Cabinet yet – to determine its core. Being in the FATF [Financial Action Task Force] world, CFATF world, the impression I have is that SOCU really is to be independent, just like in the manner of CANU. Right now, it is embedded in the Police Force and we have to look at that entire arrangement,” Williams said.SOCU was established in 2013 as a law enforcement agency to investigate, exclusively, allegations and reports relating to money laundering and terrorism as part of Guyana’s international obligations to strengthen its AML/CFT apparatus and only recently, Ramjattan declared that the protocols for SOCU were embedded in the rules of the GPF.As a matter of fact, he had stated that the protocols would be numbered 54 (a) of the Standing Orders of the GPF. Ever since its establishment, the Unit was placed under the Police Commissioner and was expected to have a strong working relationship with the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU).It is for these reasons observers are now questioning the real reason behind the movement of the Unit from under the GPF and whether the body will now be used to fulfil “narrow political interests”.Witch huntingIn July 2016, the Office of the Leader of the Opposition accused the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Government of using SOCU for the witch hunting of People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) members.In a statement, it said that SOCU, which was created to investigate money laundering and the financing of terrorism under the AML/CFT Act, had been transformed into the operational arm being used to target PPP/C officials.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo noted that his office was “aware” of the existence of a “list” containing the names of political leaders of the PPP/ C and non- PPP/C individuals who were to be targeted by SOCU. This list originated from no other than the Ministry of the Presidency.It is important to note that $40 million was budgeted for SOCU under the Ministry of the Presidency 2016 Budget, which had already raised a number of suspicions in the National Assembly, prompting PPP/C Member of Parliament (MP) Juan Edghill to ask why SOCU, which was established under the Guyana Police Force, was funded under the Ministry of the Presidency’s Defence and National Security programme.At the time, Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, in response, told the House that it was a temporary arrangement. SOCU has been under heavy scrutiny from the political Opposition and rights groups after a botched operation on December 30, 2015, involving a high-speed chase down Carifesta Avenue, Georgetown, which left three persons dead – GDF Sergeant Robert Pyle; his wife, Stacy, and the driver of a Canter truck, Linden Eastman.Sergeant Pyle and a team from SOCU were supposed to have been conducting surveillance on the home of the former Head of the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL), Winston Brassington at Cowan Street, Kingston, Georgetown. They became engaged in the high-speed chase down Carifesta Avenue with a vehicle occupied by Opposition parliamentarian Charles Ramson Jr; his wife, Alana Seebarran, and her brother.During the chase, Pyle slammed into the truck that was travelling in the opposite direction, resulting in the deaths.While the GDF claimed Pyle had been on an official operation, there were reports that he was never instructed to get involved in any chase.The Government has since refused to launch a Commission of Inquiry into the incident, prompting condemnation from politicians and rights groups. SOCU has also been involved in a number of financial probes and has seized millions of dollars in cash and jewellery as part of its investigations.However, at least one of the seizures involving jewellery at a local airport has since attracted a multimillion-dollar lawsuit.last_img read more

Bidders must produce plans for value-added production

By on January 12, 2020

first_imgEnmore Estate divestmentBy Jarryl BryanWhile a number of bids have been received by the Special Purpose Unit (SPU) from companies – both local and foreign – for the remaining sugar estates, there will be a strong focus on what these companies can do to create value-added products.The East Demerara Sugar Estate, popularly known as Enmore EstateA perusal of the information memorandum on the privatisation of the East Demerara Sugar Estate, popularly known as Enmore Sugar Estate, shows this is certainly the case. In section 10 of the document, which was seen by Guyana Times, all companies tendering for the estates must submit a five-year development plan.Included in this development plan are stipulations that details the company’s plan for producing value-added products must be provided. The bidders also have to provide their plans for collaborating with other local industries to ensure value-added products are made in Guyana.Value-added production and manufacturing is a critical part of the economic viability of a country. And while sugar is a primary product that Guyana produces and exports, the revelation that cane juice was being imported from Canada and sold in Guyana made headlines and attracted much attention.Besides packaged sugar and other value-added products sugar can be used for, persons have also spoken of the need for by products such as bagasse and ethanol to be produced from sugar, for Guyana’s energy needs.ExpandingThe companies also have to provide a proposed capital plan for modernising and expanding the estate facilities; particularly when it comes to the sugar factory and replanting the fields. They must also provide details on the financing for capital works, including the source of the money and a marketing plan.Among the financial information companies have to produce are financial projections covering five years. This must include income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement.In addition, there must be a timetable for implementing the plan. The companies also have to provide information on the economic and social benefits that will be derived from their investment, including earnings and savings in foreign exchange and tax revenues.“It is a critical consideration that the acquisition of the estate and any development plan that is proposed is capable of being financed without any recourse to the GuySuCo/NICIL or the Government and that it can be funded on a basis that will not materially threaten its viability. The source, amounts and timing of each part of the financing plan should be detailed.”AssetsAccording to the memorandum, Enmore consists of 6900 hectares of land under sugar cane cultivation. It also has a packaging plant, which has a total capacity of 40,000 tons of sugar and has indeed packaged sugar from estates across the country.The memorandum also states that the Enmore Estate is capable of producing 75 tonnes of cane per hectare, with a total of 492,765 tonnes of cane per annum. Out of this, the memo states that 19,711 tonnes of molasses can be produced using an average of four per cent of the total cane ground. In addition, it was noted that there are 10 drainage pumps at the estate, six of which are recent acquisitions.“The Government installed six additional pumps which enhanced the drainage capacity of the cultivation and the surrounding communities. These pumps are traditionally maintained by the estate but arrangements are now being made to remove all social responsibilities from the estate back to the Central Government.”BidsA few companies, including several foreign ones, have bid for the estates that are available. According to the bids that the SPU received, Liberty Investments Inc bid for the Enmore Estate.Meanwhile, Guygulf International Trading Development bid for the Skeldon, Rose Hall and Enmore estates. Guygulf International is the parent company of local subsidiary Nand Persaud.Apart from Guygulf, D Rampersaud and Co Ltd submitted a bid for the Skeldon Estate; Industrial Equipment Sales and Service Incorporation (IESS) will vie for Rose Hall Estate, and Kadem Sugars Inc is in the running for the Rose Hall Estate.Tenders closed on October 31, 2018. Absent from among the bidders is Demerara Distillers Limited, who in a statement on Friday revealed that it decided not to submit its bid for the Enmore Estate. It acknowledged the importance of the industry both to produce its rum and for sentimental reasons but noted that its due diligence did not justify making the investment.Liberty investments Inc, the company that bid for the Enmore Estate is a California-based Construction Company that bills itself as a custom home builder. Meanwhile, Florida-based Guygulf International Trading Development has as its principals Hefazul Hakh, Ragindra Persaud and Faiz Al-Abidee.While Ragindra Persaud is the Chairman of Guyana’s Rice Millers Association, he is also Chief Executive Officer for Guygulf’s local subsidiary. IESS, meanwhile, is a US-based industrial equipment company involved in the oil and gas sector.last_img read more

Pardew leaves Premier League tailenders West Brom

By on January 10, 2020

first_img0Shares0000Alan Pardew leaves West Bromwich Albion bottom of the English Premier table after just four months in charge of the club © AFP/File / Lindsey PARNABYLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 2 – Alan Pardew paid the price for a club record eight successive Premier League defeats by leaving his managerial role at West Bromwich Albion by mutual consent on Monday.The 56-year-old had only been at the club for four months after replacing Tony Pulis but failed to revive their fortunes and he leaves them bottom of the table 10 points adrift of safety with just six games remaining. Three of those matches are against Champions League chasing trio Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.Former Hull and Watford manager Marco Silva is the bookies early favourite to take over the role.“West Bromwich Albion and Alan Pardew have agreed to mutually part company today following discussions between both parties,” read a club statement on their website.“Assistant Head Coach John Carver will also be leaving.“The Club would like to thank Alan and John for their efforts and wish them well in their future endeavours.“First-team coach Darren Moore has been placed in charge of first team affairs until further notice.“The Club will not be making any further comment at this time.”Pardew — whose last managerial job saw him sacked as Crystal Palace manager in the 2016/17 campaign months after taking them to the FA Cup final — replaced Pulis after the club had failed to win in 10 matches.His cause was not helped by his players off-the-field behaviour either.Four senior players — including Northern Ireland defender Jonny Evans and England midfielder Jake Livermore — broke a team curfew whilst on a warm weather training camp in Barcelona in February and stole a taxi.Pardew, a former Reading team-mate of West Brom technical director Nick Hammond, was the club’s sixth manager since 2011.They won just once in 18 league games under him, and took only eight points from a possible 54.Pardew’s departure comes six weeks after the club sacked chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman.Goodman’s replacement Martin Jenkins found the finances in such a poor state that he had to organise the club’s first overdraft in a decade.“I’ve come back (he had been chief executive for 14 years before leaving at the end of 2016) and I’m shocked at what I have found in some of the decisions that have been made,” he told The Times last week.“I’ve come back and can assure you that we are right at our limit on STCC (short-term cost control). There is no more money for (players) wages.”West Brom are in their eighth successive Premier League season but have taken only 20 points from their 32 matches this campaign.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Misconduct cost top KPL referees

By on January 6, 2020

first_imgThe FKF Ad Hoc Committee, in its seating, imposed a suspension for a period not exceeding three rounds of the Kenyan Premier League on Hosea Omondi and Joshua Achila, while Collins Opiyo will be out for four rounds.KPL Assistant Referee Joshua Achilla was reprimanded for two decisions he made in AFC Leopards’ loss to Gor Mahia during the ‘Mashemeji Derby’ played in February at the Moi International Sports Center Kasarani.“on two occasions, your decisions on offside have changed the result of matches. That, you made two crucial decisions which had an impact on the Gor Mahia FC vs AFC Leopards FC match played on Feb 9, 2019, at the Kasarani Stadium,” the ruling read.“That you denied Ulinzi Stars FC a goal through a wrong decision during the Sofapaka FC vs Ulinzi Stars FC match which changed the result of the match. Having admitted to the above offense, you are hereby suspended immediately for three rounds of Kenya Premier League calendar matches,” read part of the letter sent to Achilla, signed by FKF General Secretary Robert Muthomi.Hosea Omondi, on the other hand, was faulted for failing to send off Gor Mahia FC goalkeeper Shaban Odhoji for denying Sony Sugar a goal scoring opportunity by a deliberate handball outside the penalty area.“During the Gor Mahia FC vs Sony Sugar FC played on April 3, 2019, in Kisumu, which you officiated as the Center Referee, you failed to send off Gor Mahia FC goalkeeper for denying a goal scoring opportunity by a deliberate handball outside the penalty area. The same offense by the opposing team-mate got a send-off,” said the ruling.The FKF Ad Hoc Committee, which sat to deliberate on the above, noted inconsistency and lack of authority in officiating hence indirectly influencing the result of the match.  In this regard, effective immediately you are hereby suspended for a period not exceeding three rounds of the Kenya Premier League calendar of matches,” the letter sent to Hosea read in part.For Collins Opiyo, he was punished for awarding a questionable penalty to Sofapaka in their match against KCB played on April 14, 2019, at the Machakos Stadium.“After a thorough review of the incident in a video clip that resulted in a penalty, the Committee is convinced that your decision was questionable since it is the attacker who initiated contact after realizing that he had lost possession of the ball in the penalty area.”“As a matter of fact, the attacker should have been cautioned for simulation and an indirect free kick awarded to the defending team. You did not appear before the Committee when summoned for a hearing, this is, therefore, to inform you that you will be suspended with immediate effect for four rounds of KPL calendar.”“Consideration will be advanced to you once you appear before the Ad-hoc Committee,” the letter sent to Collins read in part.-Indieka also suspended-Also on the list of suspended referees is Nick Indieka, who will sit out three rounds of the FKF National Super League, following allegations brought to the FKF Ad-Hoc Committee about his disrespect to FKF Nairobi West Branch Officials during their Referees Seminar at the Hope Center.“You confessed to having incited referees against the Branch officials during the basic training for referees in Nairobi West. In this regard, you shall immediately be suspended from all matches for a period equivalent to three rounds of the NSL calendar.”“Further, you will be required to apologize to the Branch officials before being appointed to officiate any more matches,” the letter sent to Indieka read in part.”Wazito vs ShabanaNSL Referee Meshack Omondi, in the meantime, was vindicated for his decision to extend added time by eight minutes in Wazito’s home match against Shabana at Camp Toyoyo, one that was abandoned after Shabana fans interrupted play.“It was reported that during the Wazito FC vs Shabana FC match played in Camp Toyoyo on April 7, 2019, you extended added time by eight minutes without proper justification hence the visiting team abandoning the match.”“In your response, you explained that the added time was because of two key incidents:Shabana Goalkeeper was injured during the game; it took four minutes to treat him in the field of play.There were six substitutions during the game, according to regulations; three minutes are in order as added time. Together with other stoppages of the ball in out of play, the added time was reasonable and the abandonment was not caused by the added time nor did the visiting team dispute the goal.”“The FKF Ad Hoc Committee, which sat to deliberate on the above found that you were not at fault. Being a high-risk match, you applied match management techniques and had a high level of application of knowledge of the laws of the game. All allegations against you are hereby dismissed,” read part of the letter sent to Meshack.-By FKF website-0Shares0000(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The three Joshua Achilla, Collins Opiyo, and Hosea Omondi were on Tuesday suspended after a review of questionable decisions they made during selected Kenyan Premier League matches.NAIROBI, Kenya, May 7 – Three top Kenyan Premier League referees have been suspended by the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) for dubious decisions they made in some of the top flight league matches.The three Joshua Achilla, Collins Opiyo, and Hosea Omondi were on Tuesday suspended after a review of questionable decisions they made during selected Kenyan Premier League matches.last_img read more

Castle Grove prepares for its Wedding Fayre

By on December 29, 2019

first_imgAs we prepare for hosting our annual Wedding Fayre at Castle Grove Country House, we decided to feature this week’s column on some helpful factors to consider when choosing a wedding venue.Selecting a wedding venue is one of the first (and biggest) decisions you’ll make as an engaged couple — it will influence your vendors, budget, décor, and even attire Some valuable things to consider are:1. Decide how many guests will be at your wedding, as most wedding venues suit a certain number of guests best. Also, ask if your venue charges for a minimum of guest or plates (industry term) and if so aim low in your numbers, as it easier to add numbers than deduct and pay a charge.2. Decide your budget – what you are willing to pay for your venue. Do your homework and know the going rates. Most wedding experts recommend approx. 50% of total wedding budget going to venue.3. Contracts- Read the wedding contracts before signing. Couples often sign the contract to lock in the date and do not read the contract to fully understand all that is included in the venue’s wedding contract. 4. Theme – Are you having a wedding theme – if so choose a venue that will complement the theme, whether it is an overall event theme like Hollywood Glamour or Country Chic to a simple color theme.5. Ambience – The venue becomes a third character of the day, and what kind of ambience and service with the venue is important. Choose a place that fits your personality, a place that feels like coming home for the bride and groom and makes the guests feel a connection.6. Food – Decide what is most important to you in your venue budget allocation, arrival reception, main meal or evening supper. Discuss this with your venue and work with them to get best value for your budget. Is it important that food is cooked to order? If so, check that this is a feature of your venue. Have a tasting meal once final menu is selected, so that you are happy with choices.7. Food Trends – Fun food trends can make arrival receptions or evening suppers more fun and memorable, for example on arrival serve canapes on theme if you have a theme.Evening supper trends we have noted: a cheese stack in the form of a cake, bacon butties, mini burgers and mini fish and chips, essentially all fun and mini takes on comfort food which also help absorb any alcohol.Dessert Stations are a cute emerging trend also. Again, a station of mini favorites so that your guest can pick and match and nibble as the evening progresses.8. Use the venue to tell your love story – so choose a venue that you can create personalized moments throughout the day and share your love story with your guests, making it a day to cherish for all.9. Next Day Brunch – Choose a venue that will be perfect for a next day brunch – this is always a great time to relive the fabulous memories of the day before and spend time with guest that have travelled, now the pressure is off, have a few mimosas and kick back. Ask your venue to quote a price for a brunch when booking wedding to negotiate best price. 10. Lastly an insiders tip! check the venue’s real wedding gallery photos – you can get some great inspirational tips for décor and ask the wedding planner for some of the things they have liked at previous weddings.We hope these tips are valuable and we look forward to meeting you at our Wedding Fayre on Sunday, March 19th from 2pm-5pm at our wedding Fayre.Castle Grove prepares for its Wedding Fayre was last modified: May 25th, 2017 by Castle GroveShare 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:castle Grove country housewedding fayrelast_img read more
