New Deputy Chief Elections Officer sworn in

first_imgPublic and Social Policy Analyst, Roxanne Myers was on Friday sworn in as the new Deputy Chief Elections Officer (DCEO).Myers took the oath of office before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. The position is paired with that of Deputy Commissioner of Registration. After her swearing in on Friday, Myers declined to answer questions posted to her by the media. Myers appointment came after much controversy over the Guyana Elections Commission’s (GECOM) employment practices.GECOM Commissioners Bibi Shadick, Sase Gunraj and Robeson Benn had written a letter of complaint to the Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) complaining that the discriminatory measures being practiced at GECOM. They contend that there is an ethnic imbalance at GECOM, and hiring practices are being manipulated in favour of one group. The ERC has since met Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, and the matters were raised. The entity also met with President David Granger.The ERC earlier this month said it was currently in the process of investigating employment practices at GECOM and has assembled a team to do so.The Commission announced that a special investigative team has already begun work on the case. The team is being headed by retired Justice Stanley Moore, who served as a Home Affairs Minister under former President LFS Burnham. It also includes former Deputy Commissioner of Police Lloyd Smith and human resource consultant Jairam Petam. According to the ERC, the team was given a period of three weeks to complete their investigation and submit a report. But it is understood that during the process, they requested an extension, which has been granted.In a brief interview with Guyana Times, ERC Chairman, Dr John Smith had noted that the team was looking to wrap up its work before Local Government Elections. Local polls are expected to be held on November 12.At a recent press conference, GECOM Chairman, retired Justice James Patterson had said qualifications ultimately trumped race when filling vacancies. When asked whether deliberate efforts to achieve racial diversity were being made, Patterson contended that deliberate efforts were being made to get the best people and he has “no apologies” for that.Besides its work on the GECOM case, the ERC confirmed that it has met with senior officials of the Guyana Defence and Police Forces and the Fire Service. Meetings were also held with Councillors of Regional Democratic Councils across Guyana.last_img read more

Limping Nzoia eye Nakumatt scalp

first_img0Shares0000Nzoia Sugar head coach Bernard Mwalala watches his side during a past Kenyan Premier League match. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 25 – Despite failing to win a single match in their previous two fixtures on the road, Kenyan Premier League( KPL) side Nzoia Sugar’s head coach Bernard Mwalala is optimistic of recovering when they face Nakumatt on Saturday at the Ruaraka Complex.The Bungoma-based side lost 1-0 away to Thika United at the Thika Sub-County Stadium last weekend and went on to lose 3-1 to 2009 champions Sofapaka in their midweek fixture on Wednesday in Nairobi. They face fellow Premier League newcomers Nakumatt in their last of three games in a week away from home on Saturday with the hope of bagging a point in the least.“It’s been a very difficult trip and we cannot afford to lose three games in row. This is a must win for us. The worst we expect is a draw. The boys have to be mentally strong and understand the nature of the league; we just have to perform because the league is very tight,” Mwalala told Capital Sport.The two teams who faced each other last season in the National Super League played out to a 0-0 draw in the first leg tie staged at the Sudi Stadium in Bungoma, but Mwalala wants a better show and result from the return tie.Nzoia Sugar players try in vain to stop Sofapaka’s Ezekiel Okare from scoring in a Kenyan Premier League clash at the Kasarani Stadium on August 23, 2017. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNzoia are ninth on the KPL log and Mwalala has blamed their hot and cold performances this season on inexperience, though he commends them for putting up a good show in all their matches.“We have to kill the game when we have chances to score. Against Sofapaka and Thika we played well but we missed several important chances which would have given us a different result. But it’s an experience we learn from,” the former Kenyan international revealed.On the flip side Nakumatt, are placed 10th with 26 points, just one shy of Nzoia and have won only one of their last five league matches.Head coach Anthony Mwangi is however optimistic that despite the financial difficulties the team is going through, they can bounce back with a win to boost their motivation ahead of a tough business end of the season.“We have a lot of challenges in the company. The effect is real; running football is very expensive and any constrain will directly affect the team even in the field but we will approach the next game with a view of fighting for top 10 in the back of our minds,” Mwangi told Capital Sport.Nakumatt played out to a tough 1-1 result against Mathare last Wednesday and when they return to the same venue on Saturday, Mwangi hopes he will be leaving with all three points in the bag.“My players have matured and they play according to instruction. We are going to approach this game just like we have approached all the other games and hopefully we will get a positive result,” Mwangi added.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Season over at Bayern for Neuer, doubts over World Cup

first_img0Shares0000Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was part of Germany’s victorious team in the last World Cup but is a doubt for the squad in Russia © AFP/File / ODD ANDERSENBERLIN, Germany, May 9 – Manuel Neuer has poured serious doubt on his World Cup chances while his Bayern Munich coach on Wednesday says Germany’s goalkeeper will not play again in the Bundesliga this season.“I do not think it’s imaginable that I go into such a tournament without match practice,” Neuer said at an event on Tuesday night on his Russia 2018 chances. Neuer, 32, has been sidelined by a fractured foot since September and is running out of time to be fit for Germany’s opening World Cup match against Mexico in Moscow on June 17.Jupp Heynckes has ruled Neuer out of Bayern’s final league game at home to Stuttgart on Saturday.Bayern’s back-up goalkeeper Sven Ulreich is also expected to deputise in the German Cup final on May 19 against Eintracht Frankfurt in Berlin.“Manuel will not be in the squad for Saturday’s final home game against Stuttgart, for the cup final the decision is still open,” said Heynckes on Bayern’s website.If he misses the Berlin final, Neuer could only get the necessary match practice in two games before the World Cup — Germany’s friendlies away to Austria in Klagenfurt on June 2 and at home against Saudi Arabia in Leverkusen on June 8.“There are still a few games,” Neuer said, but added that he cannot give a date for his return.“There is no prognosis, I have to make the right decision for me, the team and Germany.“It does not help to get distracted.”– Debate rages –Coach Joachim Loew is still expected to include Neuer in his provisional World Cup squad, which will be named next Tuesday and then trimmed down for the final 23-man list.The goalkeeper will have to work on his fitness at Germany’s two-week training camp in northern Italy from May 23 to June 8 if he is to have any chance of playing at Russia 2018.Neuer only recently returned to Bayern training.“I want to improve daily and try to get fit as quickly as possible, so far the steps have been very good and positive,” he said,“I’m trying to continue and then we’ll see if it’s enough.”Neuer is the main concern for Loew, who is also waiting on the fitness of Germany centre-back Jerome Boateng, who has a groin injury, and attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil, who is sidelined by a back complaint.Boateng says having Neuer in goal is key to Germany’s hopes of retaining the title.“He’s our captain and a strong personality, it just makes you feel good when ‘Manu’ is behind you,” said the burly centre-back.Debate is raging in Germany as to whether Neuer should play at the World Cup finals after so long on the sidelines.Oliver Schmidtlein, a former physiotherapist with the German team, told magazine Sport Bild he believes Neuer will not be ready to play in the World Cup’s group phase.“Manuel can’t train more in his current situation, even though time is short, or he’ll risk compromising his recovery, so I think Manuel could be involved at the earliest in the knockout games,” said the former Bayern and Germany physio.“But maybe ‘Jogi’ Loew will also rely on him, because, even if he is not on the pitch, as captain he is important for the team structure.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Learn never to pay full price again

first_imgBuying early can help just as much as waiting around for a sale and buying late. As long as the item won’t take up too much space or perish, why not purchase it on sale weeks or months before you use it? My Grandma Jo did this every January. While the rest of us were wallowing in our Christmas loot, she headed to the stores to stock up on greeting cards. I used to roll my eyes when she proudly relayed how many dollars she saved on the Santa-splashed cards – 75 percent off, of course. Now, I realize my grandma was one savvy spender. Continuing in that tradition, here are nine things you should always buy on sale. Clothes Online discounters, brand-name outlets, secondhand stores. There are a bevy of choices when it comes to buying below-market clothes, including many pieces from the current season. Seasonal swings during the year force retailers to discount merchandise to push it out the door before the new threads arrive. At other times, retailers have sales to stay competitive. Most people have bought a swimsuit by July Fourth if they are going to, so that’s when you start seeing bikini sales. (Same for grills, outdoor furniture and air conditioners.) In August and September, clothes for boys and girls are marked down heavily because retailers want to get a slice of the back-to-school spending spree. That means major competition and red-tag madness. During the rest of the year, there are SmartBargains.com, Overstock.com, Nordstrom Rack, Loehmann’s, Camarillo Premium Outlets, Ross, Buffalo Exchange, Out of the Closet and Aaardvark’s Odd Ark. Groceries I hate the idea of coupon clipping as much as the next person. Penny pinching 25 cents here or 75 cents there never seems worth the hassle. My time is too precious, I tell myself. But devoted coupon clippers regularly save hundreds of dollars. Got your attention now? Kevin O’Connor, who lives in Montrose and is the techie behind BargainsLA.com, spends 45 minutes every weekend clipping about 20 coupons and sorting them in his organizer. Trips to the grocer take a little longer than they would if he wasn’t checking to use coupons, about an hour to an hour and a half. O’Connor knows the staples of his household – cereal, laundry detergent, bread – and watches for these items to go on sale. Then he pairs the sale, usually requiring a frequent shopper card, with his coupons. “I’m waiting for a card deal plus the coupon,” O’Connor said. “That’s when I’ll jump on it.” He prefers shopping at Ralphs or Vons because they double coupons. But, O’Connor notes, Albertsons lets shoppers buy a single item at the sale price even if the tag says two for $4 or three for $7. Other grocers offer similar bargains, so ask the manager at yours. O’Connor consistently knocks 50 percent off his bill, or $100 per week. That adds up to savings worth the time. Televisions The field of electronics makers is so crowded – I can rattle off a dozen brands in my sleep – that competition is intense. That means consumers benefit from frequent sales. And not just during the typical markdown periods of the winter holidays, Super Bowl and March Madness. “Retailers are interested in attracting customers year-round,” said Jason Oxman, a spokesman for the Consumer Electronics Association. Sales of digital TV sets are particularly heated because manufacturers want to get in on the buying frenzy. This year, about 30 million couch potatoes will swap out their old sets for new, high-definition ones, the consumer association predicts. But not all sales are created equal, partly because there is an incredible array of options and features in today’s televisions. Figure out what you want, then comparison shop for the best price. Pets Why spend big bucks on a designer dog or fancy feline when there’s a pooch or tabby waiting to be adopted at the local pound? At Long Beach Animal Control, it costs $105 to take home a kitty that has been fixed, microchipped and vaccinated through the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Dogs are $125. Furniture When’s the last time you saw a couch you just had to have? Uh-huh. Didn’t think so. Better to visit multiple stores, create a price range, and wait for your preferred lounging apparatus to go on sale. Big-ticket items with long style cycles such as furniture do not move very quickly, so you won’t miss out by waiting. The couch I bought at Macy’s was featured in its sale circulars for three years after I bought mine. Your patience will pay off big time because 10 percent off $1,000 is a heck of a lot more than 10 percent off $10. Sheets Like with furniture, you should be able to anticipate need and avoid last-minute impulse buys. Department stores frequently mark down sheets, which have a long shelf life (it is cotton, after all). Look for sheet sales during storewide holiday sales. And you know they use every holiday under the sun as a reason for a sale. Jewelry There is such a big markup on bling – 100 percent or more – that there is often room to haggle. Aim for 10 percent because you can often get it. If you are not in a rush, wait for the winter holidays and Mother’s Day. This is when jewelry goes on sale big time because everybody knows diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Gym memberships If you miss out on the annual sign-up discounts in January, when gyms compete to attract those newly determined to exercise as part of their New Year’s resolution, don’t fret. Gyms run promotions a few times a year, and most offer free trials lasting from one day to one month. If you don’t sign up after testing a gym out, wait a few weeks because they will often send you a letter offering membership for less than they pitched at the tryout. You can occasionally talk one gym into matching the price of another gym if the amenities are comparable. Check your human resources department at work because many companies offer gym deals. The thinking is employees who work out are healthier and happier, so their doctor’s bills are slimmer, and they work harder. Holiday decorations Retailers don’t have room to stash strings of holiday lights and inflated snowmen after the winter holidays fly by. So they mark down anything red and green to get it off their hands. If you have more room than retailers in your attic or basement, you can take advantage of the sales. At the minimum, check out Stats & Fishbecks in Pasadena. Their faux Christmas trees and strings of lights are popular. The store is transformed during the holiday season with all the decorations. If you can’t wait, TJ Maxx has holiday decor at a discount starting in July. Now that’s a list that would make Grandma Jo proud. julia.scott@dailynews.com (818) 713-3735160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But certain items go on sale so often that you should never pay full price. The trick to making sales a staple of your shopping diet is patience, according to bargain hunters and marketplace masters. “A little bit of delayed gratification can go a long way,” said Helen Malani, a shopping expert at the West L.A.-based Shopzilla, a Web site that compares the price, rating and shipping fees of more than 30 million products from about 90,000 stores. last_img read more

Elton John, partner exchange vows

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake Prime Minister Tony Blair, speaking to reporters at a news conference, congratulated the couple for exercising their newfound legal right. Activists saw the union as a watershed moment for gay rights – a public expression of commitment that would be impossible to ignore. “This will give hope to millions of isolated, vulnerable, lesbian and gay people, especially those living in repressive and homophobic countries,” said Peter Tatchell, spokesman for the gay-rights group OutRage. The new law – passed last year – allows civil ceremonies that will give same-sex couples the same social security, tax, pension and inheritance rights as married couples. Furnish, a Canadian-born filmmaker, and John have been together for 12 years. Both have said they understand the implications of their union. “Being such a high-profile couple and the fact that we decided to do it straight away does carry a certain message,” John was quoted as saying by Attitude magazine. “I’m doing this first and foremost because I want to do it for David and I want to be with David for the rest of my life, but I also want to do it to say that (the civil union law) shouldn’t be something that just sits there in law. It should be embraced.” Britain’s showbiz royalty – Elton John and David Furnish – exchanged vows and diamond wedding bands during a ceremony that capped the first week of legalized gay civil unions in the United Kingdom. Opting to use the 17th-century town hall where Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles got married in April, John and Furnish sealed their union with a kiss before facing hundreds of photographers and fans on the cobbled streets outside. John, 58, and Furnish, 43, were among hundreds of same-sex couples tying the knot in England and Wales on Wednesday, the first day such ceremonies were possible. Others wed earlier this week in Northern Ireland and Scotland. “I think it’s amazing – it’s brilliant,” said Tim Alcock, 43, one of the onlookers.last_img read more
