Dear Editor,We are soon to become the envy of the Caribbean. Our dream of becoming an economic powerhouse will soon materialise. With the discovery of over 5 billion barrels of oil, Guyana is set to become a major oil producer. And given the high prospect of additional oil discoveries, investors are eager to enter our fledging financial heaven.Moreover, our strategic position between LAC further opens up countless business opportunities; from shipping and railroad services to manufacturing and agriculture. Land, labour and capital, the three elements of production are in abundance. With the correct combination of fiscal and monetary regime coupled with astute and bold leadership, Guyana is undoubtedly destined for greatness.However, and here is where it becomes interesting, under this current Government, that is an elusive dream. With all the riches that would likely flow, our citizens have zero chance of benefitting. In fact, things might even get worse because of the gross incompetence by the Government. Our Minister of Finance is absolutely clueless when it comes to managing the economy; our Minister of Legal Affairs is the biggest pettyfogger in the entire nation; and our President, well, he is buried in oblivion.Hence, there is no assurance that this Government will get anything right. If through a sleight of hand, they’ve managed to conceal the signing bonus for over 6 months, it is inconceivable what would transpire to the hundreds of millions that will follow.But there is hope. And we now have the opportunity to right the wrong. With Irfaan Ali as President, Guyana is destined for greatness. Putting politics aside, Irfaan Ali is the best Guyana has to offer. The nation is at a critical juncture where astute leadership and economic shrewdness are warranted, and Irfaan Ali is the only one who could deliver.With the reversal of over 200 tax measures, implementation of a robust Local Content Policy that would ensure our local businesses benefit from activities emanating from the oil sector, higher public servant wages, and generous cash transfer to parents and elderly, our economic landscape would surely transform. And there is a ton more, however, in the interest of time, I would end here.Yours truly,Roger Samuels
Cameron Stoltz, a city councillor in Prince George since 2008, has announced he’s also seeking the nomination.- Advertisement -[asset|aid=3200|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=1945f112a18687c608de1a37ecbfdca3-Cameron Stoltz_1_Pub.mp3] Mr. Stoltz has lived in Northeastern B.C. for 43 years, and has owned a small business in the region for 19 of them.He joins three Fort St. John Candidates in the field.They are city councilors Don Irwin and Dan Davies…and Bob Zimmer, the current CEO of the local Conservative Electoral District Association.Advertisement In a related development, Councilor Irwin…who has just completed a two month – August and September term – as acting Mayor…will now request on Tuesday, a two month Leave of Absence from city council, to devote more time to his campaign for the Tory nomination. There is now a four man field in the race to succeed retiring Jay Hill as the Prince George/Peace River MP.
“It just seems to me if we are talking about putting $7 million to $9 million a year away to pay for elections, the money could be put to better use in improving my district,” Alarcon said. “What you’re talking about is just giving more money to wealthy candidates.” Alarc n also questioned the difficulty candidates from poorer districts would face in raising the $25,000 needed to qualify for the matching-fund program. “It’s a lot easier for someone from the Westside to get 100 people to give them $250 each,” Alarc n said. “I’m not sure I could get anyone in my district to come up with that.” Councilman Dennis Zine also questioned whether the proposal would have any practical impact on reducing the role of independent expenditure committees. And he questioned whether voters would approve diverting funds from other city services, particularly police and fire, to pay for campaigns. Despite protests that it could lead to a system biased against poorer areas of Los Angeles, a city panel asked neighborhood councils on Wednesday to review options for publicly financing local political campaigns. The main financing proposal supported by the city Ethics Commission would create a $50 million fund to finance campaigns of qualified candidates. But City Councilman Richard Alarc n, who recently returned to the council after winning election to the Assembly, said the proposal was an insult to districts such as his. Alarc n represents the Northeast Valley’s 7th District, which has some of the needier neighborhoods in the San Fernando Valley. Councilman Bill Rosendahl, however, said he believed the city needs to adopt such a public-financing system to overcome the voter cynicism about politics. “Our democracy is dysfunctional because of the money from special interests,” Rosendahl said. “We have to find a way to take special-interest money out of politics.” Council President Eric Garcetti said he believed it was important to start discussions at the neighborhood council level to begin a citywide debate. But Alarc n said he still would rather see the city institute a system that pays people to vote. “If we offered people $10 to vote, believe me, almost everyone from Pacoima would turn out to vote,” Alarc n said. firstname.lastname@example.org (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

0Shares0000Rangers manager Steven Gerrard says he won’t obsess about Celtic © AFP / ANDY BUCHANANGLASGOW, United Kingdom, Jun 15 – New Rangers manager Steven Gerrard says he will not be preoccupied by Celtic as he concentrates on making Rangers a force to be reckoned with.“I think for me it is important not to be obsessed with Celtic. I have to sort Rangers out,” the former Liverpool and England skipper told Britain’s Press Association Sport as he oversaw the start of pre-season training. His priority is to get them fit for his debut Scottish Premiership campaign and he said that, and not closing last season’s 12-point gap to their Old Firm rivals, was his focus.“There are things we need to improve on and my focus is on Rangers,” said Gerrard, who will be up against former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, now in the Celtic hotseat, next season as he looks to alter the balance of power in Glasgow.Gerrard said the pair have already exchanged several messages but he said his duty was to focus on the league as a whole, not just the threat from Celtic Park.“There are some good teams in the league but for me I wouldn’t be doing my job properly if I was focusing on the other teams.”Rangers will start off at Aberdeen with Celtic their opposition in their fourth match of the campaign.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
0Shares0000Victory at the Asian Games means South Korean captain Son Heung-min will be able to see out his new five-year deal with Spurs © AFP / Martin BUREAUJakarta, Indonesia, Sep 1 – Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min was beaming from ear to ear after winning an exemption from almost two years of military service by leading South Korea to Asian Games gold on Saturday.The defending champions beat Japan 2-1 after extra time in steamy Cibinong, West Java as Lee Seung-woo and Hwang Hee-chan scored the goals that will allow 26-year-old Son to see out his new five-year deal with Spurs. A late header from Ayase Ueda gave South Korea an almighty fright, but they survived a nervous last few moments to capture a record fifth Asian Games title.Korean captain Son, substituted in the dying seconds to buy precious time, sprinted from the bench to embrace goalkeeper Jo Hyeon-woo, sobbing tears of joy as they rolled on the turf together.“This is the best day in my life,” Son told AFP, clutching his gold medal.“I’m so proud of my team-mates, they fought for 120 minutes. But without the Korean people behind us we couldn’t win this tournament. Of course when I see the people support me, I want to give something back and this is the best present for my life.”The Koreans dominated the final but wasted several decent opportunities before substitute Lee broke the deadlock by smashing a left-foot shot into the roof of the net three minutes into extra time.Son delivered a free kick for Hwang to ram home a towering header eight minutes later, before Ueda’s goal triggered late drama.South Korea could have been three goals up by half-time, however, with Lee Jin-hyun blazing just over from distance and Son bundled over in the box for what replays suggested was a clear penalty.Hwang Ui-jo went close as the Japan-based striker sought his 10th goal of the tournament before Japan captain Koji Miyoshi forced a sharp save from Jo.– From tracksuit to camouflage –Roared on by thousands of flag-waving “Red Devils” fans, the Koreans continued to press with Hwang rippling the side-netting just after the hour mark, but both sides wilted in the sapping conditions as the game wore on.Failure to win gold could have been disastrous for Son’s career as the multi-millionaire footballer faced swapping his tracksuit for a camouflage kit and 21 months of national service, compulsory for South Korean men.Spurs only released their forward to compete as one of three permitted over-age players at the far-flung, under-23 tournament because he pleaded with the London club.“I’m so grateful to Tottenham because they let me come here,” grinned Son. “Normally that’s not an easy decision. I would have felt very sorry if I didn’t win the gold medal,” he added.“I really thank the coaching staff and players. I’ll continue to work hard for Tottenham when I return.”Nearly every able-bodied South Korean male is required to perform military service before the age of 28, although the government rewards Asian Games gold medals and Olympic medals of any colour with an exemption.Son was selected to play at the 2014 Asian Games but his former club Bayer Leverkusen refused to release him — and the Koreans scooped gold.His tears after South Korea’s quarter-final defeat by Honduras at the 2016 Rio Olympics melted hearts, and thousands offered to do double their own military service in an online petition if Son could be pardoned.“My players fought to the very end,” said Japan coach Hajime Moriyasu. “They showed real spirit and can be proud of themselves. They will be stronger for it at the Tokyo Olympics.” 0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)

DDTV: WATCH a trailer for Ninety Seconds, the brand new futuristic movie from local movie producer Gerard Lough.Filmed in and around Donegal, the movie tells the story of a cynical surveillance expert who takes on an unusual assignment that will lead him into a downward spiral of paranoia and obsession.In an unnamed city in the near future, surveillance experts use equipment as sophisticated as any intelligence agency and hire themselves out to well heeled and paranoid clients. They become known as “Techs”. Mark (Andrew Norry) is one of the best of his kind. He takes on what seems like an ordinary assignment for shady business man Mr. Philips (Michael Parle). His job is to follow and record every movement of a young dancer (Emma Eliza Regan). But soon both he and his new assistant – hacker Ralfi (Claire J. Blennerhassett), discover there is something strange about this assignment and they quickly find themselves in the middle of a mystery that may well bring about their downfall.Fresh from the critical acclaim of his Stephen King adaptation The Boogeyman, Gerard Lough’s new film is both futuristic and highly topical. An exciting mix of striking visuals, provocative themes and strong performances. CAST & CREWAndrew NorryMichael ParleClaire J.
