PYO celebrates 64 years of political activism

first_imgThe Progressive Youth Organisation of Guyana (PYO) on Tuesday marked its 64th anniversary by reflecting on its sterling contributions to the overall development of Guyanese youth and the country’s thrust for sustained socio-economic progress and equality in the pre- and post-independence eras.The PYO, which was established on September 6, 1952, also reflected on the struggles and sacrifices made by many of its young leaders in the fight for social justice and democracy in Guyana, over the past few decades.The body expressed heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the scores of youth organisations and pressure groups that have worked tirelessly side-by-side with the PYO to ensure that young people were part of the country’s decision-making process at every level and the general political process.In addition, the PYO congratulated the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) on its excellent track record in and out of office, as far as laying the foundation for youths to play an integral role in the country’s political system was concerned, while creating opportunities for them to reach their full potential in every area of life.Today, the PYO remains strong and more committed than ever before to working with youths from all across the country to improve their standard of living, access to equal educational opportunities and well-paying jobs.The PYO, as the youth arm of the PPP and a strong youth advocacy organisation, has stated that it would continue over the next few years, to speak out against the injustices committed against youths, and the current Government’s apparent policy of reducing them to puppets and silent minions.The PYO further contended that all young people, regardless of their race, class, creed or social background, must be treated with respect and dignity by those who wield political power, as was demonstrated by the actions of many former presidents, inclusive of Bharrat Jagdeo, Donald Ramotar, Janet Jagan, Samuel Hinds and Cheddi Jagan.The PYO also used the opportunity to call all young people to action and to urge them to pay attention to the actions of the new Government which threaten to reverse the gains made in youth activism and socio-economic progress.Even as the PYO acknowledged the current hostile environment in which young people are being dismissed from their jobs, discriminated against, subjected to rising levels of unemployment, increasing levels of criminality and economic hardship, the body expressed optimism that a bright future still lies ahead once the right policy measures are taken to reverse or reduce the aforementioned plights facing the country.last_img read more

Cornwall smashes masterful century in rain-affected clash with USA

first_imgRegional Super50 Tournament– Leeward Islands Hurricanes snatch 2nd victoryRakeem Cornwall scored a rapid 125 from 93 balls that included 10 gigantic sixes and six timely fours against the United States of America (USA) in a rain-affected encounter at the Three Ws Oval, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, Barbados.Rakeem Cornwall swings for the hills during his masterful centuryThe Leeward Islands Hurricanes won the toss and opted to bat first on a small outfield, scoring 248-7 in 49 overs.The Hurricanes lost opener Keacy Carty in the second over of the innings to left-arm spinner Nosthush Kenjigie as he was caught by Timil Patel for one. USA bowlers continued to interrupt the Hurricanes batsmen, with the top three batsmen scoring 22 runs combined. However, Hurricanes skipper Devon Thomas and Cornwall had other plans as they scored briskly. Thomas was dismissed in the 19th over for 43 from 52 deliveries by leg-spinner Patel as he was threatening to take the attack to the USA bowlers. Cornwall continued to lose batting partners, but that did not halt his scoring rate. He finally found a reliable partner in Orlando Peters, who faced 57 deliveries, scoring 27 useful runs. In the final over, Cornwall finished off in style as he thumped the USA left-arm fast bowler for a huge maximum and a four off the final two deliveries for an unbeaten 125. Kyle Phillips, who has been among the wickets for the USA, grabbed 3-62 in eight overs. Left-arm spinner Kenjigie bowled economically, grabbing two wickets for 28 runs in 10 overs, including two maidens.Timil Patel was the best bowler on showAs there were continuous rain breaks, the USA were tasked with a revised target of 207. The openers Jaskaran Malhotram and Monank Patel were watchful until the latter was dismissed by off-spinner Terrence Ward in the ninth over with the score on 22. Skipper Malhotram and Steven Taylor consolidated for a while, but leg-spinner Damion Jacobs sent Taylor packing for 23 runs, bowling the 19th over. The Hurricanes bowlers bowled brilliantly as they contained the USA batsmen. Cornwall, who bowled with control and variation, picked up two wickets for a mere 13 runs in eight overs as he completed a man-of-the-match performance, while medium pacer Orlando Peters had two wickets in his two-over spell; Terrence Ward, who had an economy rate of 3.2, had one wicket along with Chesney Hughes and Jamaican Damian Jacobs. USA Captain Malhotram was the only USA batsman to contribute substantially with 40 from 90 deliveries. After the 36th over, the rain began pouring and the game concluded. The USA were on 131-7 losing by 47 runs under the Duckworth-Lewis method.Devon Thomas during his knock of 43The Leeward Islands Hurricanes and the United States of America are at the bottom of Group B.

first_imgKilimanjaro Stars head coach Juma Mgunda says he expects a tough game against the home side, but believes his squad is god enough to challenge for a place in the final.“When we came here, we came to compete to the last day. We are facing the hosts and a very good team. I have a lot of respect for Uganda and I know it is not going to be easy. In the AFCON 2019 qualifiers we played to a draw here and I know if we do our best we can win,” stated the tactician.Just like Zanzibar, Sudan just needed a win to progress to the semis and they pounded the Tanzanian backline, doing everything right but pick the right pass in the final third.Mohammed Abbas Namir had two chances in the first half with shots from range but they were well saved by Tanzania keeper Aishi Manula.In the second half, the Sudanese had more chances. In the 65th minute, Montasir Osman played a brilliant through ball to Namir, but his effort on the left foot was over.Two minutes later, Osman had a chance for himself when he brilliantly controlled a long ball from Ammar Mohammed, but the finish didn’t match the first touch as he blasted the ball over with only Manula at his mercy.The Tanzanians managed the time well and ensured they guarded their rear, though Sudan planted long ball after long ball in the final quarter hour in search of a goal.0Shares0000(Visited 25 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tanzania’s Herman Mpepo surges forward under pressure from Sudan’s Ahmed Ibrahim during their CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup match at the Lugogo Complex in Kampala, Uganda on December 14, 2019.

first_imgA JUDGE has adjourned a bid by Highland Radio for a new bingo license which will see the station end its partnership with the charity Rehab.Letterkenny District Court heard the station wants to form a new partnership which would see some of the money from a new on-air game go to the Donegal Hospice instead.Highland Radio would earn €52,000 per year from the joint venture, Judge Paul Kelly was told by Hazel Russell from the station. Ms Russell told the court that the station would charge €25 every time bingo numbers were read out, and this happened eight times per day. This would amount to €1,000 per week as bingo was played five times per week.She said that due to the recession current bingo book sales have been “diminishing” and she felt that partnership with a local charity may increase this again.Ms Russell told Judge Kelly that a new company would be established to run the bingo game. This would have charitable status.The current bingo license, she said, was owned by Rehab, and the new company wanted to take it over from April.Judge Kelly said however that he needed a reassurance that no more than 40% of the money raised from the bingo could be spent on administration.“I need some more clarity to see how this is going to work,” said the judge.He adjourned the application, asking Highland Radio to provide a breakdown on how much money would actually go to the Donegal Hospice after the costs of reading out the bingo numbers and printing and distributing bingo books were added up.JUDGE ADJOURNS HIGHLAND BINGO BID TO SEEK CLARIFICATION OF COSTS was last modified: February 10th, 2014 by John2Share 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:donegal hospiceHighland Radioradio licenselast_img read more

Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade Halme has slotted in quite nicely, plenty of protection with Phillips there. Huffer has looked a little nervous but done ok. The game is calling out for Saiz to replace Forshaw.

Gorakhpur hospital deaths: NHRC issues notice to UP government

first_imgTerming the case a serious violation of the right to life of patients, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Monday issued a notice to the Uttar Pradesh government over the deaths of dozens of children and others at the Baba Raghav Das Medical College hospital in Gorakhpur, even as 41 children died since Saturday. With the fresh spurt in fatalities, the death toll shot up to 104 in the past week.Taking suo motu cognisance of media reports, the NHRC asked the U.P. Chief Secretary for a detailed report within four weeks.Details of action soughtThe NHRC also asked for the steps taken for the families of the victims and the action taken against officials responsible for the deaths.A total of 63 patients admitted to the intensive care unit of the government-run facility died in a span of days, reportedly because of the oxygen supply being stopped due to pending payments to the supplier.Thirty of the deaths took place over 48 hours on August 10 and 11. The government has maintained that the children died due to different illnesses, including Japanese encephalitis (JE).Acting Principal of the hospital Dr. P.K. Singh said that 12 children succumbed to JE on Saturday, 13 on Sunday and 16 by 9 p.m. on Monday. “The full report for the day will be available only after midnight,” said Dr. Singh. “We see these many cases every year at this time. The deaths are actually in keeping with the corresponding figures from last year,” he added.The NHRC said the incidents pointed towards “gross callousness on the part of the hospital administration and the Medical Education and Health Department of the Government of Uttar Pradesh.” It observed that it had taken up the issue of deaths caused by JE with the Chief Secretary during an open hearing and camp sitting conducted in Lucknow on August 9-11.“However, in spite of the assurance given by the State administration, the situation has not improved,” the NHRC said.As reported earlier, the private company providing liquid oxygen to the medical college hospital stopped supply as an outstanding bill of ₹70 lakh had not been cleared. After the deaths, a magisterial inquiry was ordered to find the cause.last_img read more
