Using CoI process to generate excuses

first_imgDear Editor,Karl Deutsch observed many years ago that political science was myopic in its development of theories and knowledge about power. He complained that political scientists “described the laws and institutions of State much as anatomists describe the skeleton or organs of the body.” But the “nerves of Government,” “the channels of decision-making and communication” by which Government so often asserts its power, proved Deutsch incorrect. Governments not only act, but must also communicate their actions to the people.This now brings me to the question: What really has President David Granger and his ministers done with respect to prison reform, since they promised the people on the campaign trail that they would “implement proposals for the reform and strengthening of the Prison Services, in line with the recommendations such as those made in the Report of the Disciplined Forces Commission, especially with regard to training and recruitment, increasing salaries, and conditions of service” (see Page 44 of the APNU/AFC Manifesto).The answer to the question is: very little!What has Team Granger done to at least accomplish some of the recommendations of the Patterson Commission of Inquiry (2016)? Again, the answer is: very little!Justice James Patterson and his two commissioners, former Director of Prisons Dale Erskine (a top professional in the field), and human rights activist Merle Mendonca, recommended the “formation of a committee to focus on reducing the overcrowding in the prison system, where at least 60% of the population (in March 2016) were on remand.” Again, this was not done!Actually, the situation got worse since the 2016 Prison Fire.It is unfortunate that the policy makers, who were tasked with a slew of recommendations in Justice Patterson’s Report in regard to the events of 2016, did very little with those recommendations. I suspected that President Granger would appoint another Commission of Inquiry (CoI) in 2017, to pronounce on the current tragedy. So said so done; I am advised that there is now a new 2017 CoI into the Camp Street Prison fire.This is nothing but an act of executive laziness from the Cabinet of Guyana. These acts of not making the big decisions to improve the welfare of the nation, by hiding behind the CoI process, are nothing but devious and deceitful on the part of Team Granger. They continue to outsource their functions to these CoIs, wasting hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ dollars in the process, when the answers are right in front of them.What I have observed over the last two years is a trend of Team Granger’s to use the CoI process to generate the excuses needed to camouflage its inability to do the job its members are really being paid to do.In conclusion, why did it take the total destruction of the Camp Street Prison in 2017 for Minister Ramjattan to realize that he has the power to remove 463 hardened, high-risk convicts from the centre of the city to other prisons in remote locations, and to release into freedom 57 former prisoners?Sincerely,Sase Singh,MSc- Finance, ACCAlast_img read more

Five stars to solve Liverpool’s left-back crisis

first_img 5 5 Daley Blind (Ajax) – Click here to view more left-back targets – Blind was one of the stars of the World Cup, performing brilliantly as the Netherlands made a surprise run to the semi-finals. The Ajax left-back provided the sumptuous 50-yard cross for Robin van Persie’s incredible header against Spain and unsurprisingly he is being chased by both Liverpool and Manchester United. Reds fans have already made it clear they want to sign Blind but Ajax are keen to keep hold of the £12million-rated star. 5 Liverpool have been flying in this summer’s transfer market, bringing in a wealth of attacking talent to compensate for the departure of Luis Suarez but frustratingly there remains no defensive additions.Last season the Reds leaked goals at the back and left-back in particular was a problem position with Jose Enrique injured for long spells and Valencia’s on-loan defender Aly Cissokho unconvincing. Brendan Rodgers has identified filling that gap as a priority but so far bids for Sevilla’s Alberto Moreno and Swansea’s Ben Davies have been rebuffed.And with that in mind, talkSPORT takes a look at who the Reds could turn to instead to provide Enrique with competition. Click the arrows to reveal five alternative Liverpool left-back targets. Marcos Rojo (Sporting Lisbon) – Click here to view more left-back targets – Another player to shine at the World Cup was Argentina’s Rojo, who scored the match-winner in the 3-2 victory over Nigeria and impressed as La Albiceleste reached the final. It is thought the Sporting Lisbon star could move for £10million but the Reds face serious competition from Juventus, Napoli, Roma, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain to land the 24-year-old. 5 Ryan Bertrand (Chelsea) – Click here to view more left-back targets – The Blues left-back has found it difficult to break into the first-team at Stamford Bridge and despite Ashley Cole leaving, the imminent arrival of Atletico Madrid’s Filipe Luis means he will continue to play second fiddle. At 24 years old Bertrand knows his next move is crucial and a link up with Brendan Rodgers – who has got the best out of former team-mate Daniel Sturridge – would appeal. The defender spent half of last season on loan at Aston Villa but has loftier aspirations and is thought to be available for £8million. Alex Sandro (Porto) – Click here to view more left-back targets – The bruising Brazil international recovered from an inauspicious start with Porto to establish himself as one of the Portuguese giants’ prized assets and would be a welcome addition at Anfield. Like many Brazilians, Sandro loves attacking and he mixes excellent distribution in with crunching tackles brilliantly. Porto are renowned for demanding big fees for their stars, so Liverpool would probably have to pay upwards of £13million. Ricardo Rodriguez (Wolfsburg) – Rodriguez has built up a great reputation as one of the finest left-backs in the Bundesliga and further enhanced his credentials with a solid showing for Switzerland at the World Cup, where he grabbed two assists for his country. Chelsea and Manchester United are also known admirers of the £15million-rated star but at 21 and with 22 international caps already behind him, this attacking yet defensively sound left-back would be a worthy investment for Liverpool. 5last_img read more

Arsene Wenger pleased with strong response as Arsenal seal Wembley return

first_img1 Arsene Wenger insists Arsenal’s FA Cup semi-final triumph over Manchester City proved doubters wrong over their big game credentials.Despite a rugged first-half display, the Gunners fell behind thanks to Sergio Aguero’s second-half strike but showed resilience and responded through Nacho Monreal’s equaliser before Alexis Sanchez booked their place in next month’s final in extra-time.In arguably Arsenal’s biggest game of the season, Wenger’s men dug deep and fought for the victory, something the Frenchman applauded.The Gunners boss said: “I felt it was a big test for us today, a mental test because many people question if we can turn up on an occasion like this and that’s why I’m very proud of the players because they stayed united and determined.“We had a strong response today, we had a little bit of a cautious start, hesitant sometimes, but we didn’t give chances away and we grew into the game and slowly we became better and better.“In the second half we were very strong and in extra-time very strong. We always looked solid and dangerous because we played more in the second half.“I want them (the players) to enjoy playing together and to play for the club. That is, for me, the most important thing and to reach the targets we set together.“Football is a team sport, and as a manager the biggest joy is when you feel like you have a real team performance, that was the case today and that’s why I’m happy today.“You know I feel the club is in a very strong shape, and that we have a very strong overall situation and a very strong team, we have shown that today and for me, that is the most important.“One day I will leave anyway so the most important thing is that Arsenal will always be a great club that everybody admires.”Premier League defeats at Liverpool, West Brom and Crystal Palace prompted Wenger to change his formation and use a 3-5-2 formation. Victory at Middlesbrough followed and the Frenchman believes tactical alterations were needed in order to restore stability, not due to pressure from the fans.Wenger added: “No matter what you do, even if you get it right at some stage, people say ‘why didn’t you do it earlier? So it’s like the opposite is right as well, if you get your starting line-up wrong, you change it at half-time, people will say ‘see he is a tactical magician,’ because he changed the team at half-time but they forget that he got it wrong at the start.“You can always judge it on both ways but I think what I did is just to give a bit more security to a team who conceded three goals in the last three away games at West Brom, at Liverpool, at Crystal Palace. And at some stage you need to focus on something for the players which creates some confidence.“I had it in mind. First of all that we won the game (Boro game) and the team got its confidence back and after when you analyse the game again you look where did we suffer? Were we good? How does Man City play? Where do they play through? And can we cope with that? And to me it was positive enough to try today.” The Gunners booked their place in a third FA Cup final in four years last_img read more

Palmdale man dies at reservoir

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2He and his brother had gone on a hike, and the two decided to swim in the reservoir, said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Dana Camarillo. During the swim, Meza became distressed, though it was not immediately clear why, said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. John Hocking. The younger brother was able to swim to safety, but Meza was not, Camarillo said. Two emergency service detail divers dropped into the reservoir from a helicopter and pulled Meza’s body out of nine feet of water after 10 minutes of searching, she said. Meza was pronounced dead at the scene, Camarillo said. “Nine feet’s not too terribly deep, but it’s deep enough,” Jonsen said. ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST – A young Palmdale man drowned while swimming during a family picnic at the Little Rock Reservoir, authorities said. Lazaro Meza, 20, was pronounced dead just after 6 p.m. Friday by paramedics after he was pulled by divers from the water of the reservoir, authorities said. The reservoir is located in the Angeles National Forest. Meza was on a picnic with his mother and 7-year-old brother, said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Robert Jonsen of the Palmdale station. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

One player every Premier League club could sign on transfer deadline day

first_img Swansea City – Andre Ayew (West Ham United) – West Ham want £20m for Ayew but Swansea have not yet matched that asking price. Their most recent bid of £18m was rejected, but the Swans are expected to return with an improved offer in the coming hours. 20 Liverpool – No one – Jurgen Klopp has made it very clear Liverpool will not be signing any more players before the transfer window closes. Virgil van Dijk will be the only arrival at Anfield, despite fans calling for a new creative midfielder to replace the departed Philippe Coutinho. 20 20 20 Newcastle United – Eliaquim Mangala (Manchester City) – Mangala has been reported as a Newcastle target in the last few hours, as Man City close in on the signing of Aymeric Laporte. The defender will be pushed even further out Pep Guardiola’s squad when Laporte arrives at the Etihad, and Rafa Benitez could offer him an escape route. He would be guaranteed first-team minutes at St James’ Park. Manchester United – Benoit Badiashile (Monaco) – United are not planning to bring any senior players to Old Trafford on deadline day, but they could complete the signing of Badiashile, the Monaco wonderkid. He has caught the eye in France, and has not yet signed a professional contract. Because of this, the 16-year-old is free to join whomever he desires for a relatively low fee. 20 20 Huddersfield Town – Danny Ings (Liverpool) – Daniel Sturridge has left Liverpool meaning Ings may not be departing Anfield this month. However, he wants to play consistent first-team football and Huddersfield have shown an interest in the England striker. A loan deal is most likely, as it will allow Ings to show whether he can still cut it in the Premier League. 20 Leicester City – Aleksandar Dragovic (Leicester City, on loan from Bayer Leverkusen) – Dragovic has impressed for the Foxes since his summer arrival from the Bundesliga, and he has been quoted admitting he wants to sign Claude Puel’s side on a permanent basis. Whether this deal gets over the line before tomorrow’s deadline remains to be seen, but Dragovic should be a permanent Leicester player before too long regardless. Stoke City – Badou Ndiaye (Galatasaray) – A £14m fee has been agreed for Stoke to buy Ndiaye before Wednesday’s deadline. He is expected in Stoke today to complete his medical and discuss personal terms with the Potters. Work permit troubles could mean the transfer goes to the wire. Everton – Patrick van Aanholt (Crystal Palace) – There have been numerous calls for Sam Allardyce to bring a left-back to Goodison Park this month. Everton were linked with Van Aanholt earlier this month as Allardyce worked with him at both Sunderland and Palace. The rumours have gone quiet recently, but a deadline day swoop could be considered. 20 Tottenham Hotspur – Lucas Moura (Paris Saint-Germain) – Moura has travelled to London for his medical with Spurs as he closes in on his move to north London. A fee has been agreed with Paris Saint-Germain for the Brazil winger, while he has reportedly accepted personal terms as well. West Ham United – Graziano Pelle (Shandong Luneng) – The former Southampton striker is a target for the Hammers as David Moyes wants further goalscoring reinforcements. Talks have already been held with the Italy international, though there are questions over his wage packet as Pelle earns around £1m-a-month in China. Brighton and Hove Albion – James Justin (Luton Town) – Luton have accepted a £1.5m bid from Brighton for right-back Justin, the England Under-20 international. Chris Hughton has been impressed by his performances in League Two, and Brighton now just need to agree personal terms with the highly-rated 19-year-old. 20 Manchester City – Jack Harrison (New York City FC) – Harrison looked set to join Stoke on a permanent basis earlier this month, but a refusal to increase their bid has made the deal fall through. Harrison will join Man City instead, before heading to Middlesbrough on loan for the remainder of the season. 20 20 Southampton – Quincy Promes (Spartak Moscow) – Southampton have been tracking Promes for much of the January window but have not got a deal over the line yet. They are reportedly running out of time to sign the winger, as Spartak are unwilling to lose their prize asset this month. Promes is said to be keen on the move to St Mary’s, and he could force a transfer through on deadline day. Chelsea – Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) – Chelsea’s continuing hunt for a striker has to come to a close tomorrow night, and it appears Giroud is the target most likely to arrive at Stamford Bridge. The France international is keen to join Chelsea as he wants to stay in London, though Arsenal took so long to accept a £15m bid the Blues took it off the table. They are expected to return for Giroud, however. 20 20 Burnley – Joe Worrall (Nottingham Forest) – Sean Dyche has tracked Worrall, the England Under-21 international, for a number for weeks and has finally made a formal approach for the defender. Burnley’s £11.5m bid has been rejected by Forest, though the Clarets are expected to return with an improved offer. Bournemouth – Ollie Watkins (Brentford) – The Cherries are weighing up a £6m offer for Watkins ahead of the transfer deadline. The forward, 22, only moved to Brenford in the summer, but his tally of seven Championship goals has caught Eddie Howe’s eye. This move will likely happen should Benik Afobe leave Bournemouth, as is expected. 20 There are just a few hours to go until transfer deadline day, and it promises to be a brilliant end to the January window.We have already seen some huge deals completed, but a number of managers still want to further strengthen their squads before Wednesday’s 11pm deadline.But what deals could go through in the final hours of January?Click the right arrow, above, to see one player every club could sign on transfer deadline day… 20 20 20 West Bromwich Albion – Andre Schurrle (Borussia Dortmund) – Schurrle was reportedly at the Hawthorns on Tuesday to discuss terms over a move to West Brom for the remainder of the season. The former Chelsea winger has struggled at Borussia Dortmund, and could look to return to the Premier League to kick-start his career. 20 Arsenal – Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) – click the right arrow to see the player every other club could sign on deadline day – A fee has reportedly been agreed to transfer Aubameyang to Arsenal, but the deal is still not complete. Dortmund need to sign a replacement before they sell their star striker, so this one is surely going to go to the wire. 20 Watford – Leander Dendoncker (Anderlecht) – The Hornets are considering midfield options in the final stages of the transfer window, and Dendoncker, the Belgium international, has been targeted. Anderlecht have previously quoted an asking price of over £20m for the midfielder, so Watford will have to pay big to get their man. 20 Crystal Palace – Vicente Guaita (Getafe) – The Eagles have monitored Guaita throughout the transfer window and he has reportedly already passed a medical to join Palace.
