PSC stands with Guyana Govt

first_imgGuyana/Venezuela border controversy…as time winds down on Good Offices processGuyana’s main Private Sector umbrella representative organisation, the Private Sector Commission (PSC), has reiterated its support for Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge, and in particular the Guyana Government, in ensuring that claims to local lands be refuted.The PSC commitment comes in light of the recent border controversy that was sparked between Guyana and Venezuela. The decades-old controversy was brought back into the spotlight following the discovery of oil in Guyana which led to Venezuela reiterating its land claims.Relations between Guyana and Venezuela have worsened ever since United States oil giant ExxonMobil announced in 2015 that it had found oil in Guyana. Venezuela has staunchly been against oil exploration in Guyana’s Stabroek Block, where multiple oil deposits were found by ExxonMobil.Venezuela has long claimed a huge tract of land in Essequibo, which comprises nearly 40 per cent of Guyana’s current territory. But Guyana has maintained that Venezuela’s claim on the nullity of an award is a legal matter that must be resolved at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).Minister Greenidge said the country is awaiting the final decision from the United Nations Secretary General, António Guterres, now that another year of the Good Offices Process is almost done.The Secretary General’s Personal Representative, Norwegian Diplomat, Dag Nylander, had to submit his report on the meetings he facilitated between the two countries to Guterres.The engagements between the UN representative and the two countries were concluded in November and according to Greenidge, there have only been three meetings between the two countries since.Greenidge said Guyana has intensified its bilateral activism with other countries to ensure the Secretary General honours his obligations which is to refer the matter to the Court (International Court of Justice) at the end of 2017 unless there is significant progress in resolving the matter.The 1966 Geneva Agreement identified the UN Secretary General to resolve the matter using a menu of measures under Article 33 of the UN agreement. Minister Greenidge said, “We call on the Secretary General to look at his mandate and to refer the matter to the highest court in the world, the ICJ.”At the recently concluded MERCOSUR Summit held in Brazil, Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge said Guyana’s South American neighbour has been updated on Venezuela’s contention that the 1899 Award is null and void, and remains resolute to its original position.The Department of Public Information (DPI) reported that the border controversy issue was recently raised with Brazil and that country has maintained its support for Guyana, noting that the boundaries of the sub-continent should remain where they are and have existed for decades.“The matter was raised with Brazil as per normal. As neighbours, we always have exchanges on this. The President gave them an update as to where we are, and Brazil has not indicated any movement from its traditional position, which is that the boundaries of the sub-continent should remain where they are,” Minister Greenidge explained.In addition, Minister Greenidge said Guyana is awaiting the final decision of the UN Secretary General, António Guterres, who undertook to have the matter sent to the World Court, should there be a failure to have an amicable settlement between Guyana and Venezuela.Venezuela, with almost 40 times the population of Guyana and a territory that is several times bigger, claimed, in 1968, the entire territorial sea of Guyana by means of the Leoni Decree, which has never been withdrawn. For decades now, Venezuela has occupied the Guyana side of Ankoko Island, objected to the development of hydro power stations in Essequibo, and has been staunchly opposed to Guyana exploring for oil offshore and onshore its Essequibo territory.The Venezuelan Navy had, in 2013, intercepted and detained a Malaysian seismic vessel that had been conducting surveys in an offshore concession granted by Guyana to the United States-based Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, causing that company to leave and never return.There have also been incidents inland Guyana, with Venezuelan aircraft attacking vessels operating on the portion of the Cuyuní River that the arbitration court has awarded Guyana.last_img read more

Photo: Here’s the No. 1 RB In The 2016 Class, Kareem Walker, Posing With The Heisman Trophy In An Ohio State Jersey

first_imgKareem Walker poses with Heisman Trophy.Kareem Walker is the No. 1 running back in the 2016 and he’s committed to play at Ohio State. You probably don’t remember him committing, Buckeye fans, because he made his pledge during your team’s College Football Playoff National Championship Game. It’s understandable. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound back out of Wayne, New Jersey, is ranked the No. 9 player in the country by 247 Sports’ Composite Rankings. He’s talented enough to become one of the best running backs the Buckeyes have ever had – and they’ve had plenty. Former Ohio State greats Archie Griffin (1974, ’75) and Eddie George (1995) both won the Heisman Trophy during their time in Columbus. Could Walker become the third running back in Ohio State history to win the award (or, possibly, the fourth if Ezekiel Elliot takes it home in 2015)? Here he is posing in a Buckeye uniform with the trophy. Tb #BuckeyeNation #Heisman pic.twitter.com/gqMKyEFW26— AlⓂ️ightyReem (@_KareemWalker) January 19, 2015Ohio State currently has five commitments in the 2016 class – one five-star (Walker) and four four-stars.last_img read more

Canadians sure love their bacon 8 per cent love it more than

first_imgVANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — You might be forgiven if you’ve confused today’s National Bacon Day with International Bacon Day, that took place in August, but the pork industry is hoping you won’t mind the redundancy.Quebec pork producer duBreton even released a survey conducted among bacon-loving Canadians which highlights the irrational obsession some people have for the cured delicacy.They say 98 per cent of those surveyed identify bacon among their favourite foods and eight per cent confess to liking bacon more than their spouse. In Ontario, that number jumps to a greasy 47 per cent.Take those claims with a grain of salt, warns Dalhousie University food researcher Sylvain Charlebois.“Most of the time these campaigns are used to promote a product that may need some attention and bacon is certainly one of them,” he says.Charlebois thinks many people have abandoned bacon because of the health risks associated with high sodium and fat as well as a dire warning from the World Health Organization which says eating processed meats is as dangerous as smoking.Cutting back may be good for our arteries, but there could be some fallout for the economy. Canadian producers grow between 15 to 17 million hogs each year, many of them destined for export says Charlebois.“Whatever happens to bacon means a lot to a very significant economic sector of ours,” he says.The bigger picture though is the impact pork products, especially bacon, has on the environment.It takes a lot of water, food and energy to grow a pig and the smoking process involved with creating your favourite breakfast companion means there’s an extra layer to the impact bacon has on the planet.“For someone who’s looking at making choices around food that could reduce the carbon footprint of the food you eat, bacon probably wouldn’t be a good choice,” says Charlebois.last_img read more

Mishap averted as fire broke before office time

first_imgKolkata: Residents of the fire-ravaged building at 60, Chowringhee Road feel that the timing of the fire had contributed in averting a major disaster at the building.The building is commercial and the three blocks in the establishment houses more than a dozen offices with a banquet hall located at a lane in the same address that leads to Bishop Lefroy Road, the residence of Satyajit Ray. “The incident took place around 9.20 am. I was using the lift when the fire alarm inside the lift started blinking. I went to the top floor of the building where I live with my family and found that a column of smoke has started engulfing the space outside our room with the top floor of the B Block on fire. I told my family members as well as another family who lived just adjacent to our flat to come down immediately and we came down using the staircase,” said Gautam Singh, who lives with his wife and three children.

I heard the fire alarm in the building and immediately came down. There would have been a stampede if it was after 10 am as around that time people come to office,” said Shreya Das, who works at a private computer training institute located in the third floor of B Block. It is just the floor above this institute that had caught fire, she said. “The fire alarm was ringing. I came out of the room to find that my adjacent flat was on fire. I used the staircase and came down immediately. It was extremely difficult to breathe in that floor,” said Sarala Khanna, who lived with his brother-in-law just in the adjacent apartment beside the fashion designing institute that caught fire. “We are not sure whether the things in our room are intact or not. But we are lucky to have escaped the disaster,” she said. Apart from the Khanna family, the premises owner Dipak Mukherjee has an apartment in the B Block. All other apartments are commercial.last_img read more
