Just before flying off to Cuba for a check-up on his medical condition, caretaker President David Granger threw another long set of wrenches into the process of selecting a new Chair of GECOM, and as such, into setting a date for the next general elections— which he is constitutionally mandated to do by proclamation. Granger is now asserting that the role the CCJ advised he play in “hammering out” the list which the Leader of the Opposition is constitutionally required to submit to him, must also involve him in submitting and not merely suggesting names.Granger insisted in an interview with one of his staff, “the President ***must*** be given [***must*** not “may”] ***must*** be given a role and it means that I have to be involved in the selection of nominees, before those nominees come back to me”. Now while this is seemingly non-contentious, the problem arises in the precise “role” the President envisages for himself. The magnanimous gesture of the Opposition Leader to propose that Granger can suggest some names in the consensual process towards compiling his list of six names has now evidently been transmuted in Granger’s mind into an absolute, non-negotiable right.One challenge towards appreciating the point is that Granger insists on discussing it at a hypothetical level by pitching assertions such as this other formulation: “There is no way that the removal of the President’s role in the crafting of the list, the ‘hammering out’ of that list, could result in an outcome that is consensual, that is acceptable. It would be spurious if the Opposition insists on exclusively crafting that list or unilaterally crafting that list. The CCJ’s ruling makes it impossible for that to occur”.But when we examine Granger’s actions, it becomes immediately apparent that he is simply engaging in sophistry to mask his intention to have another hand-picked candidate once again as the GECOM Chair. After several meetings between himself and Mr Jagdeo (with other members of their political entities) and also by plenipotentiaries of the two sides, Granger finally condescended in accepting four of Jagdeo’s nominees as “not unacceptable” from the original list of 11 he had culled out of the 18 names in his first three rejected lists. And it was here that Granger revealed his duplicity by insisting that two names which he selected from his original 8 following Jagdeo’s gesture, must be added to the other four to make up the requisite list of 6 to be presented to himself.Now, even a most cursory examination of this demand would reveal that it is simply a Trojan horse for unilateralism by Granger. There are two considerations that are evident. The first is since Granger is the one who decides which name is “not unacceptable”, he would obviously be in a position to select his own nominee, whom he would have wanted from the beginning. And second, he would have reduced the role by the Opposition leader on compiling his list in the consensual process to a mere farce.Granger resorted that if the Opposition Leader can continue to object to his nominees, this would lead to “gridlock”. But this is the result of his own artifice: if four names are “not unacceptable” to him, in the interest of obeying the orders of the CCJ to have elections be scheduled by Sept 18, what prevented him from choosing one of those names? By his insistence of including his own nominees, he is being just too clever for the good of the country. But he cannot be allowed to get away with the continuing series of constitutional violations he has committed. It is time for the people of Guyana to make a decision on the clear and present danger Granger and his PNC present to our fledgling democracy.The first PNC dictatorship was not built in the stealth of the night, but in broad daylight. Let us not repeat that tragedy— it will be farcical. Defend the Constitution!

Trails under consideration stretch across northern Los Angeles County, reaching from Val Verde to Acton and sweep across Palmdale, in largely undeveloped and vacant land. Rapid growth in northern Los Angeles County prompted concerns from local groups to have these trails deemed preserved, a legal status that prevents developers from building on them. The map includes historic trails. After receiving approval from the county Regional Planning Commission on Wednesday, the issue now heads to a public hearing before the Board of Supervisors, which will vote on the revised trail maps. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher has slammed the Health Minister Simon Harris for failing to appoint a Review Team to Letterkenny University Hospital.The proposal was originally made by the Fianna Fail TD in the course of a Topical Issue debate in Dáil Eireann earlier this month.The West Donegal Deputy subsequently corresponded with the Minister on separate occasions regarding the need for the Department to appoint a full Review Team to conduct a root and branch review of all services, current staffing levels, present bed capacity and future bed capacity requirements along with the potential outputs of the Hospital. The review was proposed to be carried out in partnership with frontline staff and medical teams of the hospital but answerable to the Minister and through him the HSE.Deputy Gallagher said “I am extremely disappointed that the Minister has failed to grasp the need and urgent necessity for such a Review Team to be appointed to Letterkenny Hospital.“It is self-evident to everyone how much daily pressure Letterkenny Hospital is under by way of services, staffing numbers and the number of patients frequenting the Hospital.”He added that staff of the Hospital are working to their utmost abilities and beyond the call of their duties in trying to deliver the services required of them – but the hard cold facts are the Hospital is under staffed, under resourced and seriously lacking in bed capacity. “The review which I sought would clearly identify Hospital pressure points and put in place a mechanism to counter act and alleviate the underlying problems within Letterkenny Hospital.“I now firmly believe that the current Health Minister completely fails to understand the crises of services and capacity which exists within Letterkenny University Hospital – in the Minister’s own detailed reply to me he lists the problems with the Emergency Department, outpatients department, Oncology department, the need for an additional Breast Surgeon, Endocrinology and Diabetes services, Neurology and Dermatology services, Urology and Rheumatology services – the Minister in his reply identifies all the problems but proposes no solutions, it is as if he was a spectator rather than the political head of the Department of Health and that simply is not good enough.”Pat the Cope challenged Minister Harris to “stop hiding behind his Health Bureaucrats and his failed HSE strategies for dealing with the problems within Letterkenny University Hospital and take a solid political decision and appoint a review team to directly tackle the underlying problems within the Hospital – such issues as understaffing, lack of bed capacity and lack of resources.”And he addd “Enough time has been wasted in pondering and procrastinating, action is required and needs to be taken without further delay. Letterkenny University Hospital needs the Minister’s full attention and the complete support of the HSE all other initiatives thus far have failed as the situation has deteriorated and worsened, I am calling on the Minister to reconsider and appoint a fully empowered Review Team to Letterkenny Hospital in order to deal with this crisis.”Cope slams Health Minister for failing to appoint Review Team for hospital was last modified: February 22nd, 2017 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)
Donegal fans who braved the icy conditions last night saw their side dig deep to defeat Meath in Ballybofey.Donegal overcame the Royals 1-13 to 0-14 and continue their perfect start to the Division 2 campaign.Caolan McGonagle scored a 59th minute goal for Donegal, who kept Meath scoreless for 20 minutes at the end. Donegal were behind 0-8 to 0-7 at half-time and Meath led by four points for a period in the second half.It was a night for treading carefully given the underfoot conditions and Donegal were skating on thin ice at that point.But they came good and the late flurry warmed the spirits, to the delight of Declan Bonner, their manager.

26 November 2008South Africa received good publicity once more at this year’s International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC), held in London last week, after the Winemaker of the Year trophy was awarded to local vintner Abrie Beeslaar, on behalf of the Kanonkop Wine Estate.This year’s competition featured more than 7 000 entries, with southern hemisphere entries coming in four months later than those from the north, allowing for the judging panel to spend over half the year to assess all the entries.‘Best blended red’In addition to picking up the Dave Hughes trophy for best South African wine producer, the Kanonkop Wine Estate also make history in the competition by winning the Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande trophy for the best blended red wine for the third time.Dave Hughes, a respected local wine expert and commentator, has been in the local wine industry since 1986, and was involved in the formation of the Cape Wine Academy in 1979. He has also written over a dozen books about South African wines and vineyards, as well as travelling through the Cape winelands.“Only a fortnight ago, Madame May de Lancquesaing had joined Dave Hughes and the team at Kanonkop in Stellenbosch for a celebratory tasting and dinner at the winery, in the company of all three cellarmasters that had served Kanonkop so assiduously since 1965 – Jan Boland Coetzee, Beyers Truter and current cellarmaster Abie Beeslaar,” IWSC competition manager Bev Steer said in a statement last week.“There is clearly a great deal more to be celebrating now!”‘New World’ winesAccording to the IWSC, wines from the “New World” continued to outperform, with Australia once again taking pole position with the highest percentage of gold medals against their number of wines entered, at 3.3%.“The stringent judging meant that only 107 gold or gold ‘best in class’ medals were awarded across all wine entries worldwide,” the statement read.South Africa and France came joint second with 19 gold medals each, representing 3.2 and 2% of their entries respectively. New Zealand was the next highest scorer with 11 gold medals.SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… Related Posts 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… Lucas Gonze comments on my post from yesterday:“Richard MacManus is throwing himself into eBooks. A synchronicity is that I ran across an excellent bit of non-fiction by Phillip K. Dick which is available freely on the net and couldn’t figure out what to do with it. It’s not desk reading — it’s too long, and it needs to be read with patience rather than the half-attention I usually give writing on the web. It needs to be read after work, with a beer, on the couch instead of at the desk. Like a videoblog, it’s couch media, not desk media.”Couch media is a good term. I also think of it as mobile media, because I make most use of my PDA on the bus and train. I spend about 2 hours each weekday travelling to and from work, but I optimize that time by reading blog posts and other content on my PDA. I don’t get anywhere near 2 hours of couch time per day (except in the weekend, when I’m likely to spend it watching rugby). So for me ‘mobile media’ is how I usually participate in the ‘read’ part of the read/write web.I have to admit I’m not totally wirelessed up (if there is such a phrase!). I don’t yet have a decent bluetooth or wireless internet-enabled mobile phone… although I have a birthday coming up, so maybe that is my opportunity! So what I do is save webpages from my desktop onto my PDA, so I can read them offline and when I’m on the move (bus, train).This is why I’ve never objected to long-form blog posts, and in fact I favour reading them over the short and sharp ‘shoot em up’ linky style blogs. As Lucas alluded to, long-form style writing isn’t designed to be read sitting at a desk. That’s where PDA’s and other mobile media devices (such as the iPod and the latest in mobile phones) come in. They’re ideal tools to feed us our daily doses of media, in whatever format bakes your cake.For me right now, eBooks on a PDA do it for me. But I also think of long-form blog posts as a kind of eBook. That’s why I’m busy exploring the ‘eBooks as social media’ theory currently over on eBook Culture. It’s a new take on eBooks and also a new take on blogs. richard macmanus Tags:#Multimedia#web
