Domestic violence remains widespread in Guyana – US report

first_img…law enforcement needs to be better equipped – security advisor…social reform needed as preventative measureBy Jarryl BryanDomestic violence-related killings are being perpetrated locally with seeming impunity, and United Kingdom-based Senior Security Advisor to President Granger, Lieutenant Colonel (retd) Russel Combe, recognising the severity of the issue and the need to take action, told this publication in an interview that the scourge must be dealt with in a two-pronged way; one: build Police capacity to investigate and take necessary action; and two: institute social reform.“Domestic violence, I realise, is an issue. It’s a scourge in every society, but it’s making sure the Police are equipped with the tools to do their jobs in terms of being able to investigate, detect, and solve any such crimes (that really matter),” Combe declared.Security Advisor Russel CombeWhile domestic violence comes under security reform, Combe noted, preventative measures must be incorporated under social reform, because preventing domestic violence in the first place is the ideal situation.“Ideally, of course, we would like such crimes not to take place, but that’s another sort of area, social reform as opposed to security reform. But I would say the Police have identified that they do need better facilities at Police stations to be able to take statements and do the first responders’ aspect of investigating such complaints.“They are making an effort, and a number of Police stations have already been rehabilitated to provide such facilities, particularly under the IDB-funded Citizen Security Strengthening Programme,” he explained.US reportIn the United States’ State Department’s recently released 2017 Country Report on Guyana, there is recognition that while the law criminalises domestic violence and spousal rape, such abuses remain widespread, and successful prosecution is limited.“The law criminalises rape of men or women, including spousal rape and domestic violence. The law provides stringent penalties for rape, with life imprisonment as the maximum penalty. Successful prosecution of cases of rape and domestic violence was infrequent,” the report detailed.“Domestic violence and violence against women, including spousal abuse, was widespread. The law prohibits domestic violence and allows victims to seek prompt protection, occupation, or tenancy orders from a magistrate. Penalties for violation of protection orders include fines of up to $10,000 and 12 months’ imprisonment.”The report cites allegations of Police accepting bribes from perpetrators, and notes cases of magistrates applying inadequate sentences after conviction.In Guyana itself, the Parliamentary Sectoral Committee on Social Services (PSCSS) had found, during a 2017 visit to Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), that there are shortfalls in how equipped authorities are to deal with domestic violence cases.The committee was informed that ranks are not specifically trained to deal with domestic violence. However, officers are exposed to such cases during their initial training.In its recommendations, the committee had said, “There should be continuous training for officers in areas of suicide (prevention), domestic violence, and road safety. Police officers should coordinate with the religious community to have a representative on the list of Cop and Faith.”The scourgeLast Thursday, 23-year-old Deomattie “Kalvina” Persaud, a mother of two, was stabbed to death by her reputed husband, 43-year-old fisherman/farmer Bishwanie Maraj, who committed suicide after the incident by ingesting a poisonous substance.On April 17, Cleveland Williams reportedly stabbed his child’s mother, Lashawna Boyce, twice in her back. The incident allegedly occurred when the 46-year-old Williams confronted the woman while she was walking along D’Urban Street.Armed with a knife, he began pushing Boyce about her body, and a scuffle ensued between the two. He allegedly wounded Boyce and left her in a nearby drain as he made good his escape.Public-spirited persons rushed Boyce to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC), where she was admitted a patient. Williams was subsequently remanded to prison.Prior to the above incident, Guyana Defence Force Captain Orwain Sandy was remanded for shooting dead his lover, Reona Payne, on March 31, 2018 at Alexander Village, Georgetown.Reports are that Sandy and Payne were in a motorcar proceeding along First Street, Alexander Village when an argument ensued after he reportedly accused her of being unfaithful. He reportedly stopped the car, and as the woman exited, shot her several times with his service revolver.last_img read more

Exclusive – Find out what piece of advice Frank Lampard offered a young Harry Kane

first_imgFormer Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has revealed to talkSPORT how Frank Lampard senior helped Harry Kane improve his game, en route to being a top player.Redknapp said Lampard was impressed by Kane’s ability as a youngster, but told the 21-year-old the use of running spikes would “sharpen” his performance.“I remember two, three years ago a young Harry Kane played in a game at Tottenham’s training ground and Frank Lampard senior was there,” Redknapp said while co-hosting talkSPORT’s Drivetime show.“Frank said: ‘I like him Harry, he just needs to get some spikes’. I said, ‘Well, he’s here Frank, have a word with him.’“He walked over to Kane and said: ‘Harry, nice to see you. I like you, you’re going to be a good player. Just get some spikes to sharpen yourself up’.“And Harry [Kane] did it, he just needed a little bit of advice and Frank gave him that.”Redknapp admitted he always expected Kane to be a “top player”, and hailed the loan system as the “best in the world” for getting players playing regular football.Kane has been a revelation at White Hart Lane this season, netting 13 times in the Premier League alone, but was sent on loan four times during the early period of his Tottenham career in search of regular first-team football.“We always thought Harry Kane was going to be a top player. It wasn’t like Kane’s suddenly appeared,” Redknapp added.“We loaned him out and loaned lots of players out over the years. For me the loan system is the best in the world to go and get people playing football.“When I was at West Ham, I loaned out Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard, Jermain Defoe went to Bournemouth, they all went out on loan. Michael Carrick went to Swindon.“We loaned Harry out to get experience just like Andros Townsend. Townsend is another kid with a great future – Tottenham are in great shape at the moment.”Don’t miss Gary Neville co-hosting talkSPORT’s Drivetime show on Tuesday 24 February 2015 at 4pmlast_img read more

MARIA FIRED UP FOR HER FIRST SOLO EXHIBITION

first_imgCERAMICIST Maria Connolly has forged a new path in her work with her first solo exhibition which opens this Saturday.Inspired by her rural industrialised surroundings, the Manorcunningham-based designer has spent the last nine months crafting her striking pieces which will be shown at the Geraldine Harrigan Gallery, Port Road, Letterkenny for two weeks. Maria’s handmade work has previously been available for sale at the Kilkenny Design Centre but after taking time out to raise her two sons, she has now re-emerged, re-energised and inspired. Speaking about her exhibition “Pathways”, she said: “I’ve sourced my ideas from the natural environment. I wanted to incorporate the forms and attachments of everyday clearly identifiable functional items like kettles, bottles, vessels and tea-pots but not be constrained by them.“It’s been a joy for me and I’ve spent the last nine months rediscovering my path.”Living in the flight path of geese, the path of the Swilly, the landscape has played a huge part in Maria’s work.She told how she tried different techniques to create her pieces using mono-printing and sgraffito and is now really excited to see her new work on show. It is a new direction for the designer who used to be based at her ceramics shop at Church Lane in Letterkenny.“Some people might remember it. It was called Hidden Earth but it closed in 2001 after five years.”Maria also hopes to take her work to Potfest – a huge UK ceramics festival for potters to market their work.She said: “I want to take the exhibition to Potfest. I am also really excited about seeing the pieces in environment of the gallery. I hope people come along and enjoy it.”Pathways opens this Saturday, May 25th and runs until June 8 – gallery 4, 4 Port Road, Lettekenny Tel 074 9125312.

England fans will love what the Panama boss said after World Cup beating

first_imgEnglands’s ruthless display against Panama ‘frightened’ the World Cup minnows, according to their head coach.Hernan Dario Gomez admitted he feared his side could be on the end on one of the biggest drubbing’s in World Cup history. After being awarded two penalties in the first half, much of the focus was on the robust nature of the Panamanians – with several Twitter users likening them to a rugby side.And the start of the second half saw the Panama boss march over to Southgate to have a stern chat.But Gomez insisted he was merely trying to assure the England boss over his side’s vigorous nature.“I congratulated him,” Gomez said with a smile. “I told him that I really like his team, England, and I said, ‘Look, we’re going to play cool and calm now’.“I tried during half-time to tell my players to be more composed, to play football in an orderly fashion.“I’ve had to play against two spectacular opponents, Belgium and England, but this is absolutely fantastic because that is how you learn, draw conclusions and can tell where your team is.“I think England are totally spectacular – a beautiful team.” Gomez and Southgate embrace before the start of the second half A brace from John Stones, a Jesse Lingard wondergoal and a Harry Kane hat-trick ensured the Three Lions ran out comfortable 6-1 winners.And at half-time, the score was 5-0 and Panama boss Gomez was fearful of further misery inflicted by a team he declared “totally spectacular”.“The difference of goals could have been more,” Gomez said.“To concede five goals in the first half – two penalties, two set-pieces, where England were very, very effective – well, what we did was try to avoid a bigger catastrophe. 3 The Panama players pray at the end of the game center_img England, and Harry Kane in particular, were ruthless in front of goal 3 “We managed to keep the ball in the second half a little bit more and we kept playing in an orderly fashion because had we not done that it wouldn’t have been six goals but far more.“We were feeling rather frightened at half-time because of the huge difference between us and England, and also Belgium.“We have learned a lot at this World Cup so far. We’ve drawn a lot of conclusions but Panama are a small, young child in football, other teams don’t really decipher our style of play.“There were three or four goalscoring opportunities where we could have scored, but we didn’t finish properly, and England came to our box seven times and scored six.” 3last_img read more

Dead Sea Receding Shoreline Reveals Amazing Geology

first_img(Visited 202 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 As the Dead Sea’s water level continues to decline, interesting geology comes to light.The Dead Sea is dying, because the Dead Sea is drying. The well-known body at the lowest elevation on Earth (1,380 feet below sea level) is more than a historical landmark and a geological wonder. It is a place of renowned mineral resources. It is a popular stop on Holy Land tours. Yet its future is very much in doubt, right within our century. Yet the news for science is not all bad.Lena Gregorian wrote a guest entry about the Dead Sea for “State of the Planet,” Columbia University’s Earth Institute blog. Her article begins with a photo of one of the huge sinkholes that have opened up along the receding shoreline. The water level has been receding a meter a year, she says. The recession makes of more of the lake’s mineral wealth, particularly potash used in fertilizers exported around the globe, less accessible to the water-based extraction methods. She urges practices to stabilize the processes in order to preserve the sea for future generations.For a much more in depth article, see the BBC News article by Kevin Connolly. The Dead Sea is a fun place to show off the ability to float while reading a newspaper, as many tourists know. “But the Dead Sea is also a unique ecosystem and a sensitive barometer of the state of the environment in a part of the world where an arid climate and the need to irrigate farms combine to create a permanent shortage of water.” The article includes satellite image comparisons showing the shoreline receding over the past 44 years, mostly due to the taking of water from the Jordan River, its only source. Graffiti of sea level marked during World War I now stands high on a dry rock.The Dead Sea is a land of superlatives that has captivated the ancients as well as modern tourists. “The landscapes of the Dead Sea have an extraordinary, almost lunar quality to them – imagine the Grand Canyon with Lake Como nestling in its depths,” Connolly writes. “And the people of the ancient world understood that there was something unique in the place, even if they couldn’t be quite sure what it was.” It would be a shame for our generation to permanently alter this wonder of the world.The shoreline recession has damaged shoreline industry and tourist operations because of geological activity, particularly sinkholes. There were none 40 years ago. Now, there are 5,500 of them, Connolly writes, showing a photo of a resort severely damaged by sinkholes on the former beach. Sinkhole formation is accelerating. This year, he says, 700 of them formed.They form when underground salt deposits left behind by the sea as it retreats either collapse into huge chasms or dissolve when fresh water seeps underground and causes the ground above to give way.Some of the craters are huge – perhaps 100m across and 50m deep – and in places it looks as though the area is in the grip of a powerful earthquake happening over the course of several decades.Geologists are watching the region with great interest (cf 5/03/04). In the GSA Bulletin, a journal of the Geological Society of America, Israeli and UK geologists were able to study horizontal shear zones from seismic events evident on the Lisan Peninsula because of the receding shoreline. They conclude that significant displacements took place simultaneously during a single earthquake, rather thanDespite the hazard caused by near-surface destructive horizontal displacements during earthquakes, field evidence for coseismic slip along horizontal discontinuities is exceptionally rare, mainly due to the lack of adequate exposure and markers. However, within the seismically active Dead Sea Basin, the late Pleistocene Lisan Formation contains vertical clastic dikes that are sheared laterally at maximum depths of 15 m, and thereby provide unique profiles of such horizontal displacement…. The exceptional quality of exposures and markers enables us to document, for the first time, the details of near-surface horizontal shearing, and indicates that displacement along horizontal bedding planes is a viable mechanism to absorb coseismic deformation in well-bedded near-surface strata.Creation geologist Dr. Steven Austin has also used the opportunity to look for evidence of historical earthquakes (see ICR article). In exposed canyons along Dead Sea shoreline sediments, he believes he has identified several earthquake markers mentioned in the Bible, including the big one recorded by the prophet Amos that shook most of the land of Israel in the time of King Uzziah (Amos 1:1). In another ICR article, Austin describes the extent and consequences of that major quake.The Dead Sea will most likely reach equilibrium with its input sources before drying up completely. Preventing further recession is difficult due to the political differences between Israel, Jordan and other neighbors affected by this large, historic body of water that is 8 to 9 times saltier than the ocean.Much within Israel looks very different today than it did in Biblical times. It’s disconcerting to some tourists to find a shopping mall and hamburger joint on the backside of King Saul’s palace mountain of Gibeah, to say nothing of mosques atop the Temple Mount. But there is still a great deal to see and appreciate in Israel. If you have not toured the Holy Land yet, try to see it while you can. Tensions in the region may continue to escalate to a point that will make travel dangerous. Tourists cannot help but notice who is trying to preserve the history and archaeology, and who is trying to blow it up or rain rockets down onto it.A one-minute video on YouTube draws a spiritual parallel in a “Tale of Two Seas” on the Jordan River: The Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea. Worth a quick watch.last_img read more

Is This Salamander Really 40 Million Years Old?

first_imgby Jerry Bergman, PhDThe development of new techniques has allowed researchers to see inside of fossils to evaluate not only organs but also tissues. An example is a report on a new study of “an exceptionally preserved salamander from the Eocene of France”[i] that revealed many of its organs and structures. In addition to the skin and skeleton the researchers found muscles, lung, spinal cord, digestive tract and even nerves.[ii] The most incredible find the French researchers made was the preservation of frog bones within the salamander’s stomach, evidently its last meal. This find is of note because as far as we knew salamanders rarely eat frogs or other salamanders. This is just one of many studies that are creating big problems for evolutionists. A putative 35 to 40-million-year old salamander whose organs look just like a present-day salamander? No evolution in 40 million years? Many organs preserved? The fossil is claimed to be permineralized, where minerals have replaced the organs, leaving good detail of the structural detail that was originally in the organism. It belongs to the same family as the living fire salamander Salamandra salamandra.It is true that in 99 percent of the cases, fossils are represented only by hard parts, such as bones and shells, but that rare 1 percent can tell us a great deal about ancient life, such as it appears that there is no way these fossils could be 40 million years old.The trunk, hip and part of hind legs and tail are also preserved. Although discovered in the 1870s, until very recently the only traits paleontologists could determine about this specimen was the visible anatomical details, such as the cloaca. The cloaca is an external orifice used for reproduction and the urinary canal.The specimen was scanned at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, which produced an incredible level of details achieved by electronically slicing the specimen into a series of thin sections somewhat like CAT scans achieve with x-rays. The technique is called phase-contrast synchrotron X-ray microtomography.[iii] The quality of preservation is such that the details of at least six kinds of organs are preserved in almost perfect condition. As a result, the researchers were able to describe the structures in great detail, indicating little difference exists between this specimen and modern examples. In this case they were not soft tissues, but the organs were permineralized that allow the researchers to describe the structures in great detail, indicating little difference exists between this specimen and modern examples.Soft Tissues Is Another Area of ImportanceThe most exciting development is a technique, namely to dissolve fossil bones in acid to reveal soft tissue, that has revolutionized our understanding of ancient life. Many writers on the topic of ancient soft tissue finds assume, or imply, that Mary Schweitzer’s 2005 article was the first published paper on this topic. This may be because her paper received significantly more attention than all of the previous papers. It was, though, by no means the first paper to determine that soft pliable tissue, including arteries and other blood vessels, exists in dinosaur fossil bones.[iv] Actually, reports date back to 1907 on empirical research of possible blood vessels in dinosaur fossil bones. One review was published in 1920 in The American Naturalist titled “Concerning the Fossilization of Blood Corpuscles” in dinosaur bones. The paper concluded that very good evidence exists for such preserved tissue in dinosaur bones.[v]In his paper “Original Biomaterial in Fossils,” Brian Thomas noted the existence of many pre-2005 publications on soft-tissue, and cited a few examples.[vi] One must wonder why this topic has been almost totally ignored for so long. Today, evolutionists are still trying to explain them away, as documented in the Creation Research Society’s i-Dino project.[vii]  It could be for the reason that Darwinists realize these discoveries produce major problems both for their theory of life’s origin and gradual evolution.ConclusionsThe new techniques, such as phase-contrast synchrotron X-ray microtomography, plus the realization that fossils alleged to be many millions of years old contain soft tissue, will likely result in an enormous number of soft tissue studies on putative ancient fossils. The results will likely cause a revolution in our perceptions about evolution by documenting that these fossils are not as old as once believed, and that little change has occurred from these ancient specimens and to animals living today.
