GPL’s never-ending power outages

first_imgDear Editor,School has just reopened, and we are already having power outages (blackouts) around the clock, non-stop. I am very annoyed at this, and it does not make any sense why we are having a lot of power outages now, of all times. A lot of time was given to the Guyana Power & Light Inc to fix the issues of the numerous power outages. For the two-month break, we had less power outages that were bearable enough, given that the company fixes the problem. Now that school has reopened and power outages are on every day for long hours during the day and night, sometimes even continuing into the next day, it is very frustrating.Why is it that we have to have power outages, especially on the first day back at school? Businesses and schools are depending on the electricity to carry out their daily tasks. The students, most importantly, depend on the internet to get their research assignments and homework finished. The constant power outages are making our simple activities even more difficult, and are throwing more time off for us. We need to address this situation, and have it fixed for once and for all.I am very surprised that this isn’t a headline on the news and on the radio. We need to put more focus on this situation, and not let it slide away every time. It is time that we make a change in this regard. This is very sickening. Not every Guyanese can afford a generator, and it is very torturing at this point.From what I personally overheard on the radio, the announcer was saying so proudly that when we do have blackouts, the young generation should count themselves lucky and use it as a lesson for us to go to the library more and do research, and use candles to shed some light on our studies in the night. I am not nothing is wrong with that, but what message exactly are you trying to send to the young generation? We are not trying to head backwards, we should be progressing and have these major issues fixed. The younger generation is progressing, and technology plays a big role in our lives today. We cannot head back to those days; our elders certainly wouldn’t want it that way.Why hasn’t the Guyana Power & Light ever given a proper explanation to the public as to why we get power outages consistently? Is there a reason so major that it has to occur several times? There has to be a way for us to tackle this problem once and for all, and find a permanent solution that benefits all. We cannot let this matter be tucked away easily every time, and sit back and do nothing about it. We need to speak up, as Guyanese, and have this matter fixed. It is time enough that the Guyana Power & Light should stop playing these games with the citizens of this country, and get the problem resolved.Sincerely,Crystal-AnnRamrattanlast_img read more

Rodgers welcomes return of ‘sensational’ Liverpool starlet

first_imgLiverpool boss Brendan Rodgers could unleash Jordon Ibe on Newcastle on Monday night after revealing the teenager has looked ‘sensational’ in training.The 19-year-old, who has been out of action with a knee problem for six weeks, is now fully fit and Rodgers admits he is delighted to have him back.Ibe had made a massive impact for the Merseyside club, after returning from a loan spell at Derby in January, before suffering his injury setback.Speaking ahead of the Anfield clash with the Mapgies, Rodgers said: “Jordon Ibe will come back in. I have got to say, he has looked absolutely sensational in training.“He has been out for a while but he has been out on the field for a couple of weeks now, doing his preparation work and he has joined in training.“He has looked absolutely outstanding – he has got real natural fitness. He’ll come into the squad for Monday night.”Adam Lallana is still likely to be missing for Liverpool.The midfielder suffered a groin problem in the defeat to Manchester United and was ruled out of Saturday’s 4-1 loss to Arsenal.“I don’t think he’ll be ready for Monday,” Rodgers said. “We’ll just see how that goes into next week.”Mamadou Sakho will definitely miss out after picking up a hamstring injury in the midweek FA Cup win against Blackburn.Mario Balotelli, meanwhile, could also be out through illness, while Martin Skrtel and Steven Gerrard must serve the final match of their three-game bans.Emra Can, however, is back in the squad having served his suspension.Provisional Liverpool squad:Mignolet, Johnson, Can, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Lucas, Allen, Sterling, Coutinho, Sturridge, Jones, Toure, Enrique, Manquillo, Markovic, Brannagan, Lambert, Borini, Ibe. 1 Jordon Ibe last_img read more

QUELLE SURPRISE! SWINDLER HAS MORE EXCUSES FOR NOT PAYING INVESTORS

first_imgUPDATED: A VICTIM of the great Donegal swindler has told us tonight that he has once again been given more excuses as to why he is not getting his money back.In fact, it’s the same excuse as the last SIX excuses: “Our lawyers are working to freeze assets from accounts!”Earlier this week donegaldaily.com exclusively revealed that investors had met at a Donegal hotel and were told they would get more information on their cash today. But a source told us: “I’m afraid it’s another excuse. I was hoping against hope that this would be it, but deep down I knew this was rubbish, some story about money tied up in investments and frozen accounts. I should have known better. It’s no surprise really.”Earlier today, in yet another exclusive revelation, we revealed that the number of people scammed in the Ponzi scheme is much higher and more widespread than first thought.At first it was thought that just Donegal people had been cleaned. The roly-poly crook was based here in the county.Then we revealed there were investors in Tyrone and Derry. But last night we also learned there are more swindled people in Belfast, Galway, Sligo, Mayo, Clare and Dublin.And a well-placed source told us: “Frankly I’d be very surprised if this latest promise is actually met by this man.“He has hoodwinked everyone.”With the number of investors growing, many people will lose out.One of them – owed €50k – told us: “I’ve given up on my investment. I believe we might get something back if this man thinks he can avoid jail by doing so, but I seriously doubt it.” email info@donegaldaily.comQUELLE SURPRISE!

GOAL-FEST IN NEW YORK AS McGUINNESS LEADS 2012 ALL STARS TO VICTORY

first_imgFINAL SCORE AT GAELIC PARK NEW YORK: All Stars 2012 8-17 All Stars 2011 8-7 :Donegal manager Jim McGuinness led the 2012 All Stars to a 10-point victory over the 2011 All Stars, managed by former Dublin boss Pat Gilroy.And it was a Mayo player – Cillian O’Connor – who inspired McGuinness’ team to victory, hitting three of his side’s goals. The friendly was played in a great spirit and was hugely supported by many ex-pats from Donegal.And because of a shortage of players, some of them got to play in the 13-a-side match at Gaelic Park.In fact CJ Molloy – nephew of 1992 All Ireland winning captain Anthony Molloy – fielded for the 2012 All Star side and there was a broad smile across Jim McGuinness’s face when CJ scored his side’s eighth goal at the end.Karl Lacey and Lee Keegan impressed at half-back, inspiring most of the 2012 All Stars forward play. But Man of the Match went to Dubliner Michael Darragh Macauley who hit three of the 2011 team’s goals.Donegal’s All Stars – including Kevin Cassidy on the 2011 team – then enjoyed a dinner hosted by the New York GAA board.ALL STARS 2012: P Durcan (Donegal); K Higgins (Mayo), E Cadogan (Cork); A Thompson (Donegal), K Lacey (Donegal, 0-2), L Keegan (Mayo, 1-1); A Walsh (Cork, 0-1), N Gallagher (Donegal, 1-2); K McLoughlin (Mayo, 0-1, 45), D O’Connor (Cork, 2-2), P Kerrigan (Cork, 1-1); M Murphy (Donegal, 0-1), C O’Neill (Cork, 1-2).Subs: CJ Molloy (New York, 1-0), D Lehane (New York), C O’Connor (Mayo, 1-4), N McGee (Donegal).ALL STARS 2011: B Kealy (Kerry); M O Se (Kerry), J McMahon (Tyrone); T O Se (Kerry), K Nolan (Dublin), K Cassidy (Donegal); MD Macauley (Dublin, 3-1), M Foley (Kildare, 0-1); B Brosnan (Wexford, 0-2), B Brogan (Dublin, 2-1), K McManamon (Dublin, 1-2); D O’Dwyer (New York), R O’Carroll (Dublin, 1-0).

UPROAR THAT ROBBERS WERE NOT DRUG-TESTED DESPITE ADMISSIONS

first_imgA leading anti-drugs campaigner and former town councillor has questioned why two men who admitted being high on drugs during a robbery were not charged with any drugs-related offence.The two men, Steve Smith, 22, and Mark Villa, 18, pleaded guilty to robbery of Donaghey’s Petrol Station in Muff last weekend.During their case at Carndonagh District Court, defence solicitor Ciaran MacLochlainn said both his clients had been high on diazepam at the time of the incident and didn’t have “much recoglition” of the incident. However despite being found guilty of robbery and sentenced to six months in jail, no drugs offences were brought against the men.Last night former Letterkenny Town Councillor and drugs campaigner PJ Blake said it beggared belief why no drugs charges were brought against the pair.“How much more evidence do we need when a solicitor says such a thing in court? Here we have it in black and white.“And yet there is not one charge in relation to drugs in this case. It has been admitted they were high.“How do we not know that these men were not driving around for hours high out of their minds?“They could have killed innocent people and yet they were not even charged with any drugs offences.“It is almost five years since I began pushing for drug-driving testing to be introduced and even when it is being presented in court, nothing is being done about it,” he fumed.UPROAR THAT ROBBERS WERE NOT DRUG-TESTED DESPITE ADMISSIONS was last modified: April 18th, 2012 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) Tags:courtdrug testingdrugsPJ BLAKElast_img read more

Department of Education launches safety resource to address teen ‘webcam blackmail’

first_imgA new internet safety resource for teenagers has been rolled out this week by Education Minister Richard Bruton.The new ‘Be in Ctrl’ resource has been developed in partnership with An Garda Síochana to support teachers to address the topic of online sexual coercion and extortion – often referred to as ‘webcam blackmail’.‘Webcam blackmail’ is when scammers trick their victims into performing sexual acts in front of their webcam, and then threaten to share the footage with the victim’s family and friends if they refuse to pay them. ‘Be in Ctrl’ contains three lesson plans, an information pack for school leaders, and will be supported by a Garda Schools’ Talk. The resource will be available for all schools to order, or access online, for free.The resources are intended for use as part of the Junior Cycle SPHE curriculum and will help students understand that online sexual coercion and extortion of children is a crime; raise awareness of safe online communication; and know when to seek help and report incidents.The Department of Education says that it recognises the concern expressed by parents and teachers on the use of new technologies by children, particularly social networking apps such as Snapchat that automatically erases messages once the app is closed.Assistant Commissioner John O Driscoll of Special Crime Operations says that An Garda Síochána is pleased to partner with Webwise in the development and launch of this important initiative. “Awareness raising of the nature intended, is undoubtedly an extremely important aspect of combating online child exploitation,” he said.“The benefits that can arise from implementing preventative measures regarding the issue involved, cannot be overstated. Posting or uploading explicit images or videos on social media, or passing such imagery to others online, is extremely dangerous and has potential to cause devastating and lifelong consequences for children and their families.“Both parents and children should be aware of the dangers involved and the Garda Síochána advise that explicit images should never be posted or shared online. Any child who receives a request to share explicit photographs should not do so. If a child receives a request of this nature, we urge them to tell a parent and immediately make contact with the Garda Síochána who will provide advice regarding how the matter can best be handled.”Launching the resource, Richard Bruton, Minister for Education and Skills said: “We want to ensure our children are kept safe online. Today’s announcement is part of a suite of supports we offer schools in playing their part to ensure that our children are protected online. I’m delighted to launch this resource, which was developed in partnership with An Garda Síochana and I encourage all schools to engage in this very important area.”Ciara O’Donnell, National Director, PDST, explains: “National and international research has consistently shown that the qualified classroom teacher has the capacity to positively impact students’ attitudes, values and behaviours. “They are therefore well placed to work sensitively and consistently with students. This resource should greatly assist teachers in their engagement with students on issues associated with online sexual coercion and extortion.”To learn more, you can visit Webwise ‘Be In Ctrl’ by following this link:https://www.webwise.ie/beinctrl/Department of Education launches safety resource to address teen ‘webcam blackmail’ was last modified: February 9th, 2018 by Elaine McCalligShare 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)Tags:be in ctrldepartmenteducationRichard Brutonwebcam blackmaillast_img read more
