Better Hope pensioner goes missing

first_imgMissing: Cecil Joseph also called “Berty”The family of 72-year-old Cecil Joseph also called “Berty” of Lot 16 Kissoon Street, Better Hope, East Coast Demerara (ECD), is seeking the public’s assistance in locating the pensioner after he left his home the day after Easter Monday and failed to return.The missing man’s son, Chaitanya Becunha, told Guyana Times on Monday that his father has been residing with him at Better Hope, ECD, for the past two years since the death of his wife.Becunha added that his father would regularly visit his brother’s home and would return after a week or two, however, this was not the case. The worried son contacted relatives to check on his father but was told that he was not seen, hence he suspected something was amiss.After calls to relatives seeking information on Joseph’s whereabouts proved futile, the desperate son went in search of his father during which he visited both the hospital and police station but this also proved futile.“It got me really bothered now that’s where I decided to search. I went to do a search hunt at the hospital, I check with the police station and stuff like that, nobody knows anything. At this point I am kinda disappointed because he never said anything where he going and here it is, he gone missing” he related.However, Joseph’s son revealed that his father’s disappearances are constant. Becunha told this publication that prior to this incident, his father at one time told him that he was heading to Venezuela for one week but surprisingly, he spent ten years in the neighbouring country before returning home.The son is now of the belief that his father may have headed back to the country or even to Region One (Barima-Waini) since he was constantly expressing an interest in visiting the area.“Since my mom died he was back and forth with us, from here to Venezuela all the time…he got some relatives in North West because he always wanted to go to North West, so I’m wondering if he gone out there now or he gone back to Venezuela, so I don’t know” he related.Nevertheless, Becunha is worried as he related that his father suffers from memory loss among other illnesses. Becunha is, therefore, asking the public to forward any information on the whereabouts of Joseph by calling 638-0710 or contacting the nearest police station.last_img read more

Georgetown Football Association… DISSOLVED!

first_imgThe Guyana Football Federation (GFF) has taken the painful, self-imposed but constitutionally obligatory step of appointing an Interim Management Committee (IMC) to manage the affairs of the Georgetown Football Association, effective June 29, 2018 until new elections are conducted in accordance with the Constitution of the Georgetown Football Association.This action became necessary following the GFA’s inability to resolve the many challenges it faced over the last two and a half years; challenges which have resulted in stultification of football programmes and initiatives.Those management challenges have been exacerbated by the GFA’s inability, in violation of Article 29 [1] of its Constitution, to convene its Annual General Meeting in April of 2017, despite the many interventions by the GFF to provide management guidance.The GFF has therefore been left with no option other than to indicate to the GFA that it is “revoking the mandate entrusted to the members of the Executive Committee of the Georgetown Football Association”; and the appointment of the IMC has been taken in conformity with the guidelines and provisions of Article 2 Para. [d] & [e], Article 13. Para. [a], and Article 82 of the GFF Constitution, as well as Article 8 Para. 2 of the FIFA Statutes.In communicating its decision to the GFA, the GFF informed that it could “no longer exercise reasonable confidence in the ability of the GFA Executive Committee members to continue holding the various offices to which they were duly elected.”They were also instructed to “reconcile and return all financial and material assets that are the legal property of the GFF.” The membership of the IMC will be announced in due course.last_img read more

SAD STORY BEHIND MARY FROM DUNGLOE TO BE BROADCAST ON TG4

first_img‘Mary from Dungloe: The Impossible Love’, a new Irish documentary for TG4 from Donegal-based Lugh Films about the sad history behind the famous Irish ballad, will screen this Wednesday 4th September at 9:30pm.The woman who inspired the song and annual festival in Donegal forms the subject of this documentary which recounts how Mary Gallaher fell in love with a man whom her parents forbade her to marry.Described as a ‘poetic docu-drama’, ‘Máire an Chlocháin Léith, an Grá Coiscthe’ tells a story of love, poverty, emigration and heartache – drawing on contemporary accounts and folk memory with the help of historians. Contributors include Paddy Rodgers, Helen Meehan, Sean Bonner, Dr Éamonn Ó Ciardha, Professor Dáithí Ó hÓgáin and Seán Beattie.The documentary also reveals what life was like in West Donegal at the end of the nineteenth century and uncovers the reasons that compelled Mary Gallagher to emigrate on a ship bound for New Zealand – where her life ultimately came to a tragic end.SAD STORY BEHIND MARY FROM DUNGLOE TO BE BROADCAST ON TG4 was last modified: September 3rd, 2013 by StephenShare 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)last_img read more

DD Fitness: Why Slimming World just doesn’t do it for me

first_imgToday we’re going to talk about Slimming World and how it could be preventing you from losing weight.This could be a bit of a contentious subject, so before anyone jumps in to defend Slimming World or a mob turns up at the gym with torches and pitchforks, I’m not saying that Slimming World doesn’t work.They have plenty of success stories to show that their method works for some people. by Emmet RusheBut, from my experience of dealing with thousands of clients over the past 8+ years, it doesn’t work for everyone long term.And I’m going to explain why that could be.You’ve probably been told you have free foods that you can eat in unlimited amounts throughout the day. While these foods may be low in fat, this, unfortunately does not mean that they are calorie free.In order to lose weight, you need to be in a calorie deficit.This is when you’re eating fewer calories than you burn, which forces your body to burn fat.The thing about having free foods that you can eat in unlimited amounts, is that you could be taking in too many calories throughout the day and this could eventually cause your weight loss to either stall, or you could actually gain weight.If this is starting to sound familiar, I’ll explain why this could happening below. Here is a basic list of some of the most popular free foods that slimming world have and their calories per weight;• 50g Dry pasta – 190 calories• 1 large potato – 280 calories• 100g black beans – 230 calories• 100g Fat Free Natural Yogurt – 43 calories• 1 large banana – 120 calories• 100g raw chicken breast – 165 caloriesSo, from just 6 Free Foods, that are in normal amounts, you are getting around 1000 calories.That is before you add in any Syns or overeat on any of these foods that are considered ‘free’! From looking at the portions of clients who have previously followed a Slimming World diet, they were eating way above the amounts above.The majority of them were filling their plate with 2-3 large potatoes.That meant they were getting between 600-800 calories, just from potatoes, before they added anything else.When you are doing things like this on a consistent basis, your weight loss can eventually stall.This means you have hit maintenance.(Which means the calories you are eating have matched the calories you are burning off for your weight)If you get disheartened and start to eat more Syns and foods that may not be allowed, you will take in even more calories and could end up gaining weight.Over time, this completely erases any progress you’ve had so far, making you regain any weight you lost.Not just that, but you end up feeling guilty and ashamed, that it happened, so the below mindset kicks in;“There’s no point carrying on my diet, I may as well give up.”To top it off, you haven’t learned to manage your portions and you will still think that free foods can be eaten in large quantities, so the weight continues to pile on.What’s the solution then?The answer is simple –Manage your portion sizes and realise that everything you eat will have calories in it and they all add up.You can find out how to do that here https://www.donegaldaily.com/2019/07/06/dd-fitness-weight-loss-made-easy/If you have struggled for years, with this cycle of losing weight, only to stall and then regain it back again, it may be time to try to manage your portion better or to try something else.Our Lean in 2019 Program will teach you how to balance your diet, without having to exclude anything from it.Our next block of classes starts on August 6th, so if you would like to finally get lasting results you can pre book your place by getting in touch.DD Fitness: Why Slimming World just doesn’t do it for me was last modified: July 26th, 2019 by Emmet RusheShare 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)last_img read more

Andy Rodefer, Nov. 9

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Harvest is all done. We finished up with our custom work last week. Now we are working on disk ripping ground, spreading fertilizer and getting ready for next year.In the corn it was all over the board. There were really good yields in some areas that were planted early. I think that in this area, no-till really struggled this year. There are a lot of no-tillers around here and they could not plant early this year. That no-till ground needed two or three days for the ground to dry out and the conventional guys were able to sneak in and get started. It is not about the no-till, necessarily, it is just about where you could get in early.In this area there is corn that was in the 50 to 100 bushel an acre range, corn that was 100 to 150 bushels and then anything planted early on well drained soil was 200 or over. There was a very wide range.Our corn was a little better than we expected it to be. The early corn was all really good for us and we had one farm on gravelly ground that had the best corn we have ever had on it. But if you took our township, I would say that the average yield is in the 125-bushel range.We got 3.5 inches of rain a couple of weeks ago. Within two days, we were back in the field. The ground soaked it in really quickly. We have had a couple of small rains since then and they are calling for more showers this week. We are disk ripping and everything is in good shape right now. We got through harvest without compacting the ground worse than it was from this spring. And not having to pay the propane bill to dry this corn this fall was nice.last_img read more

29th Annual Buckeye Farm Antique, Inc. Show highlights

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Lea Kimley, OCJ field reporterThe Memorial Day weekend was marked with a tradition of traditions at the Shelby County Fairgrounds with the 29th Annual Buckeye Farm Antique, Inc. Show.“From 1 to 101 there is something for everyone,” said Ester Geyer, the event coordinator. “There are nearly 500 antique tractors to see, free comedy entertainment, flea market hunting, and tractor pulls.”International Harvester Chapter 6 was celebrating 25 years. The club originally formed at the antique show. Dennis Wilson, member secretary, brought a unique international truck that was built in Ohio at the Springfield plant. He will travel a few more places this summer anticipating the restoration of another one of his prized processions. Wilson has been an active member of the club for 15 years.“These shows are great because of the people,” Wilson said. “That’s my favorite part.”There were a few new attractions at this year’s show. Both a wood carver and blacksmith ventured to Sidney and had interesting stories to tell. Dayle Lewis, wood carver, has been perfecting his sculptures for 20 years. His business grew to chainsaw carving as soon as he tried the craft for a Christmas present.Jack Howison, blacksmith, was inspired when seeing a fellow blacksmith’s craftsmanship. Howison eventually learned more about the Southern Ohio Forge and Anvil (SOFA) and became a member. There are 900 members making it the largest blacksmith organization in the world. Lewis and Howison both turned their enjoyable hobbies into a thriving business. There was a lot of excitement for these new additions to the show.Every tractor sitting on the fairgrounds embodied a unique story. Three generations of the Luedeke Family exhibited a John Deere antique tractor at the show. There were rows upon rows of antique tractors in every shape, size, and color. However, all the owners shared the same appreciation for the hobby. It is the personal connection to the craft and the tradition that has kept everyone coming back for 29 years. Three generations of the Luedeke Family exhibited a John Deere antique tractor at the show. Jack Howison, blacksmith, was interested in the work on display at the show. Wood carving was featured at the show. Dennis Wilson brought a unique international truck that was built in Ohio at the Springfield plant.

Italian Geologist Reflects on Tragedy of 2009 Earthquake

first_imgThis weekend, it will be 5 years since a massive earthquake, centered on the town of L’Aquila, killed 309 people in the Abruzzo region of central Italy. The aftershocks of that tragedy included a controversial court case in which a judge found four scientists, two engineers, and a former government official guilty of manslaughter for having misleadingly reassured the citizens after a series of earlier tremors; the prosecution argued that residents would have otherwise followed the traditional practice of fleeing houses before a major quake hits. Each was sentenced to 6 years imprisonment, but the judgment is still under appeal.The earthquake on 6 April 2009 has also led to new research. Gianluca Valensise, a geologist at the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), is the scientific coordinator of Progetto Abruzzo, which involved opening a research center in the “red zone” of L’Aquila—the devastated area of the city’s historical center that is largely uninhabited and restricted to traffic. Valensise recently spoke with ScienceInsider about the effort, which has been funded since 2012 by Italy’s research ministry, and the general relationship between Italy’s geoscientific community and citizens since the trial. While some progress has been made, problems remain in his view. Despite their crucial role in a hazard-prone country like Italy, and the demand for effective communication to the public, Italian scientists “have never received any formal training in the communication of science and of natural hazards,” he notes. Valensise’s remarks have been edited for brevity and clarity.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)On how the Italian public views earth scientists now and vice versaMost people do [believe] that some top-level scientists were caught in a communication jam orchestrated by others. I have no evidence of disrespect for what INGV scientists do. Instead, people do expect scientists to make statements on how current earthquake sequences will evolve—but many scientists have been severely distressed by the outcomes of the L’Aquila trial and tend to share critical information only among themselves.What is Progetto Abruzzo?Our research focuses on the entire Abruzzo [region] for producing high-resolution seismic hazard data and elaborations that are normally unavailable for other parts of Italy. It also aims to provide institutions with a database of geological features that may interact with buildings and infrastructures, including active and inactive faults, shallow landslides, deep gravitational slides, and karst collapse. … We also run various initiatives for communicating science and spreading the awareness of geological risks.On whether the court decision changed the trust and cooperation between scientists and the publicUnlike before the earthquake, today it seems we all share the same goals: completing the reconstruction, preventing future catastrophes, increasing everyone’s awareness of natural hazards. … [Yet] many seismologists have changed their approach toward communicating their findings. It is not just a question of fear, although that indeed is a major aspect of this change. There is a sense of confusion about the role of all actors involved: scientist, civil protection authorities, local administrators, citizens.On whether Italy would handle the same incident better now Following the L’Aquila trial, the Italian Civil Protection [Department] has reorganized the Italy’s National Commission for the Forecast and Prevention of Major Risks [Commissione Grandi Rischi], fostering profound changes in its structure, responsibilities, and procedures. It is unquestionable that things are now clearer, and that if a new 6 April earthquake occurs anywhere in the country the response will be different.Will another tragic event like the 2009 earthquake happen?L’Aquila earthquake is a midsize event that Italy may experience every 5 years or so. Even such events may be locally catastrophic, and they may come unexpected over one-third of the national territory. When combined with the concentration of the Italian population, this circumstance may result in frequent “minor” earthquakes having a significant yet largely unexpected impact. Many of us suspect the next damaging Italian earthquakes will again be a surprise, at least for citizens and administrators.last_img read more
