Guyanese people are not incapable of logical thought


first_imgDear Editor,In a letter to the Editor on May 15, 2017, I expressed serious concerns following (then) Minister of Natural Resources Honourable Raphael Trotman’s statement on the Production Sharing Agreement with ExxonMobil whereby it was noted that “ExxonMobil is allowed to recover expenditure as part of the contract, this is easily understood. What is not clear is exactly what expenditure, is it the expenditure to the point of discovery? Do we have a figure of how much it cost ExxonMobil to discover the Liza field well and is that the amount to be recovered by ExxonMobil or is it that we will have to repay all of ExxonMobil’s subsequent costs as they continue to explore?”That was over two years ago, answers were never provided, for no doubt they were dismissed as ‘non-expert’. Sadly, the Government is now asking the International Monetary Fund the same questions. The concluding statement of the 2019 International Monetary Fund (IMF) Article IV Mission to Guyana states: “authorities have indicated their concerns that the absence of a ring-fencing arrangement in the Stabroek Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) could potentially affect the projected flow of Government oil revenues”.The harsh truth is that this omission from the PSA could not be made if the persons negotiating on the behalf of the Guyanese people applied logic, common sense, if you will, and genuine concern for the future wellbeing that oil revenues could provide. The adviser on petroleum to the President, Jan Mangal, now claims to have been absent from negotiations. No special knowledge of ‘oil and gas’ was required; just honest care, we may never know if the negotiations were so poorly done due to negligence, corruption, deficient logic or basic stupidity; what I do know, is that no Administration that cares so little for the future wellbeing of its people, should ever be elected again. The Guyanese people are not incapable of logical thought and we know the clichéd “fool me once” applies in spades.Respectfully,Robin Singhlast_img read more

Gor hit Zoo, Tuyisenge ups golden boot chase


first_img0Shares0000Jacques Tuyisenge is joined by Humphrey Mieno in celebrating his goal against Posta Rangers on August 10, 2018 at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu. PHOTO/KPLNAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 4 – Rwandese forward Jacques Tuyisenge joined Kariobangi Sharks’ Eric Kapaito and former Nzoia Sugar man Elvis Rupia on top of the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) golden boot race after scoring one and assisting another in Gor Mahia’s 4-1 thrashing over Zoo Kericho in Machakos on Thursday.Tuyisenge moved to 15 goals same as Kapaito and Rupia who has however not featured in the second leg after joining Zambian giants Power Dynamos in June. The former Rwanda Police FC attacker now hopes to score one more goal in the final day of the season against Tusker FC in Thika to pick the diadem in his second season turning out for the 17-time KPL champions.But, the trio might be joined on top by Zoo’s Mike Madoya who scored the Kericho based side’s consolation and should have had another late on but missed a penalty.–Positive startComing off a run of four winless matches, Gor got into a positive start with left back Wesley Onguso breaking the deadlock with a low shot from the edge of the area after 17 minutes.However, the visitors drew level with Madoya scoring his 14th goal of the season with a simple header inside the box off a Bernard Odhiambo cross after 33 minutes.Two minutes later though, the joy of an equalizer were dashed with Gor going back up ahead when Tuyisenge finished off Francis Mustafa’s cross inside the box.Wellington Ochieng then finished off Francis Kahata’s freekick heading it in in the 39th minute as Gor went to the break 3-1 up.The recently crowned champions needed just three minutes in the second half to pull further away, Bernard Ondiek striking a sweet volley from a Tuyisenge assist.Zoo had a chance to draw one back late on when Madoya was clipped inside the box by Joachim Oluoch, but the pint0sized attacking midfielder blasted his penalty wide.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Watford 0-0 Chelsea: Hornets hold Blues to another draw


first_img Watford 0-0 Chelsea: Hornets hold Blues to another entertaining draw Watford and Chelsea shared the points in a 0-0 Premier League draw at Vicarage Road. These sides settled for a point each in a four-goal thriller at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day and this game was exciting and tense, but without the goals as Heurelho Gomes performed incredibly well in between the sticks for Watford. It was tenth-placed Watford against 14th-placed Chelsea, who have not lost since Guus Hiddink replaced Jose Mourinho in December.After a bright Chelsea start, the Hornets grew into the contest and the Blues soon looked rattled.Odion Ighalo had a good chance when he was found in the box by Jose Holebas, before Thibaut Courtois made a series of good saves, first denying Craig Cathcart’s header before tipping away Etienne Capoue’s powerful drive.Diego Costa nearly gave the visitors the lead before the interval as he pulled a shot towards goal on the turn, palming the ball just past the post.Ahead of the break, Costa’s aggressive play was evident again as he and Juan Carlos Paredes had a coming together. The Spain international was infuriated, but credit to Odion Ighalo of Watford, who played a key part in calming down the Chelsea striker.Both sides had dangerous opportunities early in the second half, Watford captain Troy Deeney first striking a 20-yard volley inches wide before Costa laid a chance on a plate for Oscar from six yards. Under pressure, the Brazilian playmaker side-footed wide.An aggressive and entertaining contest, a 0-0 draw looked increasingly likely as Gomes made more stunning saves, denying Hazard late on after Allan Nyom’s error. The Brazilian goalkeeper rushed out to scramble to Hazard’s feet before the Belgian – on as a substitute – could get a shot off.Watford looked tired in the closing stages of the match and if there was going to be a winner, it looked like it would be Chelsea’s. Hazard dinked a ball to the far post and, on the stretch, Costa poked the ball into the side netting.Costa leapt high in the closing stages to head towards the far corner but the ever-present Gomes secured the point as he dived across goal to save yet again. 1last_img read more

Brother and sister-in-law hoping to complete marathon – without falling out!


first_imgA brother and sister-in-law have proven that blood isn’t always thicker than water after agreeing to undertake this weekend’s Dublin City marathon together.Stephen McElhinney and Rachel Enfield have been a familiar sight around the country roads of Glenswilly and Lettetrkenny in recent months.The neighbours from Tullygay decided to put on their jogging shoes and tackle the 26.2 mile course which takes place n the capital this Sunday. Neither had ever ran before they decided to take up the challenge and to raise some much-needed funds for the Donegal Hospice.Stephen says they have hopefully put in enough miles to get across the line without too much pain come Sunday afternoon.“People ahem been so good and everyone who has ever done a marathon has offered us some bits of advice. Even those who have never done one have offered us plenty of advice,” laughed well-known bread-delivery man Stephen.Stephen, who rises for work each morning at 4am, has been trying to juggle his raining runs with Rachel who has to juggle her everyday life as a mum. Her cause has not been helped by the fact that husband Paddy flew to Lebanon six months ago on peace-keepong missions with the Irish Army.Big-hearted Paddy has made the ultimate sacrifice and has flown back to Ireland for a few days to support Rachel and Stephen before flying back to the Lebanon in a few days to complete his year long tour of duty.Rachel and Stephen have booked a hotel close to the starting line of the race so they won’t have to wake to early on the morning of the race.“I’m not sure if we’ve done the right thing there. We’re hearing now that Harcourt Street is full of hen and stag parties and they might keep us awake.“Don’t get us wrong, we might join them after the race but before the race I’m hoping we can get as much sleep as possible,” laughed Stephen.

EURO BATTLE: THE COPE AND HARKIN AGREE MASSIVE RECOUNT AFTER DEADLOCK


first_imgPat the Cope Gallagher is in a battle for that final seat in Europe.PAT The Cope Gallagher is in the race for the last seat in Europe – after a massive recount was ordered.The Donegal politician and Marian Harkin are just a few hundred votes apart.And after Fianna Fail asked for a recount, every single 663,703 votes cast in the 15-county constituency will be recounted. Officially Gallagher is around 250 behind Harkin after sweeping up transfers from Thomas Byrne.But that’s very small when set against the massive vote.Representatives for both candidates agreed to call for a full recount which is expected to get underway at 9am.Earlier Sinn Fein’s Matt Carthy was elected to the third seat in the Midlands Northwest constituency joining Fine Gael’s Mairead McGuinness and Independent Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan. “The days of the Fianna Fail/Fine Gael stranglehold on politics in this State is long over and good riddance to be quite frank,” said Carthy.“I just want to thank the membership of Sinn Fein for entrusting me to be the public face of the party for this campaign and to say that I hope that I don’t let them down and I hope that Sinn Fein doesn’t let those people who entrusted us with their vote down, I don’t believe we will. I think we are seen ever increasingly as a party that stands by those communities that need support and we intend to deliver for those communities,” he added. EURO BATTLE: THE COPE AND HARKIN AGREE MASSIVE RECOUNT AFTER DEADLOCK was last modified: May 28th, 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:CastlebarPat the Copelast_img read more
