Moblissa community gifted $5M school bus

first_imgFulfilling a promise made to residents of Moblissa, on the Linden-Soesdyke Highway, Indigenous People’s Affairs Minister Sydney Allicock on Sunday handed over a minibus valued at some $5 million to shuttle schoolchildren to and from school.The vehicle will serve a total of 47 school-aged children attending school in Linden and neighbouring communities.Speaking to residents before officially handing over the vehicle to the Community Development Council (CDC), Minister Allicock warned against division among residents especially with the new minibus being in place.“The bus will be a relief for taking your children to school and ensuring that they have a good education. We are also hoping that you will be able to manage the affairs of the bus and your managers will not set up a scheme of fighting against one another, but fighting for betterment,” he told the residents who gathered in the community’s health centre.The Minister charged the residents to take full responsibility of the new vehicle, especially in its maintenance.“For too long we have seen buses, tractors and expensive machines in communities just bracing in the corner for the need of two screws or batteries… it is about management, it is taxpayer’s money. I hope we can meet one another halfway,” he said.The residents expressed their appreciation and were vocal in their commitment to keeping the vehicle in perfect order.last_img read more

EU Ambassador praises European cultural ties with Guyana

first_imgAs the European Union celebrates 2018 as the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the EU Ambassador to Guyana, Jernej Videti? lauded the bloc’s historic cultural ties with Guyana.EU’s Ambassador to Guyana, Jernej VidetičAmbassador Videtič noted that Europeans across the world were celebrating their customs, traditions, and cultural aspects that they contributed to the world.At the celebration at Duke Lodge, the diplomat praised the historic ties between his continent and Guyana as he oversaw a two-day workshop that formulated a plan for the restoration of City Hall – a Gothic Revival-style building that is widely accepted as European in origin.Ambassador Videtič told the gathering that European historic cities and literary works would be highlighted during the many festivities that would make up the year-long observance.“The heritage of the EU is a rich and diverse mosaic of rich creative expressions inherited from previous generations of Europeans and our legacy for those to come. It includes natural and archaeological sites and museums, monuments, artworks, historic cities, and literary works, and the knowledge and practical works of European citizens,” the Head of the EU delegation here noted.European architecture can still be seen across Guyana to this day in City Hall, Parliament Building, the High Court and many other buildings across Georgetown, New Amsterdam, and elsewhere. The Portuguese, Dutch, and English were some of the European cultures that contributed to what Guyana is today, mainly through the movement of other peoples, both forcibly and voluntarily.The EU notes that this year a series of initiatives and events across Europe will be held to enable people to become closer to and more involved with their cultural heritage. Guyana Times learnt that even digital achievements such as animation will be showcased. Ambassador Videtič noted that he launched a book on European-Guyanese heritage in 2017.“The European Union and Guyana share a rich cultural history. Last year, I was pleased to launch with President David Granger the book aspects of the European-Guyanese heritage,” he noted.Established in 1993, the EU currently has 28 Member States with an estimated population of over 511 million. However, that number is set to reduce with the March 2019 departure of Guyana’s former ruler, the United Kingdom after that country voted to leave the bloc after a nation-wide referendum in 2017.

Premier re-building a once strenuous First Nations relationship

first_imgFormer Vancouver Island chief, Judith Sayers says the Premier is picking and choosing groups whose traditional territories are rich in potential for liquefied natural gas development, while others are left with little attention.All this followed last week’s Supreme Court of Canada ruling, which granted aboriginal title for the first time in Canadian history to the B.C. central interior Tsilhqot’in First Nation.Simon Fraser University professor, William Lindsay echoes the views of many, saying the decision means industry leaders will now have to talk about environmental stewardship in what Tsilhqot’in chief, Joe Alphonse has called “a meaningful and respectful way.”- Advertisement -The Premier has been attempting to make the connection between the government and aboriginals more personal, and patch things up after her widely viewed bureaucratic blunder early this year.It April, her government exempted 99 per cent of the natural gas produced in the province from the environmental review process, prompting the gathered First Nations at a native LNG conference in Fort Nelson to kick provincial officials out of the summit.The government quickly engineered a one day U-turn, reversing the policy decision, and the Premier has now held a chief-to-chief meeting in Fort Nelson hoping to make her personal touch the cornerstone of a major adjustment in her government’s First Nation’s policy. Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgGARDAI are today hunting a so-called ‘joyriding’ gang behind a spate of car thefts in the Rathmullan area.Three cars were stolen at the weekend – and two of them were burned out.Sources say gardai are still searching for a third vehicle. They were all stolen between the Rathmullan and Glenvar areas late on Friday night. The incident was one of numerous car crime events being investigated over the weekend and comes after Garda Traffic Corps Sergeant Iggy Larkin told RTE at the weekend that officers had seized an incredible 500 cars in the Letterkenny area alone this year.Many of these had been crushed, said Sgt Larkin.There were also serious incidents of boy racers joyriding in the town on Friday and Saturday night and residents in Ballyarr reported late night races on the route of the Donegal rally at 3am on Sunday.One senior Garda source told donegaldaily.com: “It’s no secret we have problems with boy racers but these spate of incidents in and around Rathmullan marks an escalation in the level of crime involved.” Sgt Larkin is a huge advocate of education in a bid to reduce car crime throughout County Donegal.He was backed up in that view on the Charlie Bird RTE1 radio programme by rally driver Toni Kelly.GARDAI HUNT JOYRIDERS BEHIND SPATE OF THEFTS was last modified: September 19th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:car theftsletterkennyRathmullanlast_img read more


first_imgATLANTIC DRIVE, ROSGUILLGAELTACHT Minister Joe McHugh says he hopes to bring more tourists to the Donegal gaeltachta – to learn Irish.The Donegal junior minister believes the county can benefit from the growing number of people abroad who want to come here to learn the language.He says there is an opportunity to create ‘linguistic tourism’ destinations in Donegal for Americans and Australians. He hopes to use the popularity of the Wild Atlantic Way to do it.“Since I took the role as minister for the Gaeltacht, I have been contacted by people from all over the world who are interested in coming here to learn Irish,” said McHugh.“Some of them are members of the diaspora, and some are people who have no Irish connection at all. We have to take advantage of this opportunity, and promote linguistic tourism.”He said gaeltacht areas like Gaoth Dobhair, Fanad, Glencolmcille and Rossguill could all benefit from more tourists coming specifically to learn Irish.  McHUGH: ‘I WANT TO BRING IRISH LANGUAGE TOURISTS TO DONEGAL’ was last modified: August 30th, 2015 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:donegalgaeilgeirishWild Atlantic Waylast_img read more

Reopening ward would help ‘creaking at the seams’ Letterkenny Hospital

first_imgDeputy Charlie McConalogue has called for the closed short stay ward at Letterkenny University Hospital to be repened to increase bed capacity and ease pressure on the Emergency Department.Fianna Fáil TD for Donegal, Charlie McConalogue called on the HSE and the Minister for Health to urgently approve a funding request from LUH to reopen the ward.The ward, which was closed during the summer, would increase the hospital’s bed capacity from 330 beds to 350. Deputy McConalogue commented, “Management at LUH is seeking an investment of just under €2m, which would fund the reopening and staffing of this much needed short stay ward.“This is a relatively small investment, in a hospital which has been the victim of chronic underfunding over the past number of years. The HSE needs to recognise this and urgently approve this request.“Increasing bed capacity in the hospital would ease the pressure on the hospital, which is creaking at the seams. It is now the norm, rather than the exception for patients to be left waiting in the Emergency Department because there are no beds in the wards available.“Over the last few years, we have seen the full capacity protocol implemented numerous times – with patients being advised to stay away from the hospital unless completely necessary. This is simply not acceptable. “The investment, which LUH management has requested, would go some way to easing the pressure on the hospital, especially as we enter the busy winter season.“I am calling on the HSE and the Minister for Health to expedite this funding request and approve it as soon as possible,” concluded McConalogue.Reopening ward would help ‘creaking at the seams’ Letterkenny Hospital was last modified: November 2nd, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:Charlie McConalogue TDLetterkenny University Hospitalluhlast_img read more

DD Fitness: The top five highest calorie Christmas coffees

first_imgOne thing that is very popular at this time of year is the Christmas themed coffees.It should be said, that most of these aren’t actually coffee and are more of a variety of calorific hot chocolates that sell by the thousands.So, which of these are the worst for your waistline? As with anything, it is usually the ones that taste the best.1. Costa Gingerbread LatteThis is a Christmas favourite. Costa’s Gingerbread Latte.  This is hugely popular over the festive period and for good reason. It tastes great.But, this does come at a cost, and that cost is almost 400 calories.323 calories34.7g of carbs24.2g of sugar14.9g of fat. This is almost a meals worth of calories in one drink.2. Gingerbread FrappachinoAs I only drink coffee in Starbucks I didn’t know there was a difference between a Gingerbread latte and a Gingerbread Frappachino.  Turns out there is almost 100 calories of a differenceThe Gingerbread Frappachino comes in at 480 calories while the gingerbread latte comes in at 392 calories.The carbs and sugar are almost DOUBLE of the latte also.  Coming in at 80g carbs and 79g sugar, compared to 42g carbs and 39g sugar in the latte.3.  Billionaire Hot Chocolate from Costa CoffeeThis is going to be very popular this year. Coming in at 528 calories with 63g of carbs and 52g of sugar.  It is a whopper to say the least. If you are still planning on treating yourself, go for a small to save yourself some calories.4. Café Neró’s Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate.Again, it’s another seemingly innocent Christmas themed drink and you wouldn’t think it could do that much damage.  Unfortunately, you’d be wrong.A large version of this comes in at 623 calories and has 82.5g of carbs. 77.7g of this is sugar and has 25g of fat also. While this is higher in calories, there are higher to come.5. Hot chocolate with everything on it.We look at Costa Coffee Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows and Whipped cream.  Basically, it’s the works.  Everything is on this, the ultimate indulgence, and the calories show this. This is the largest number of calories out if all the drinks I looked at.Coming in at;750 calories87.4g of carbs68.5g of sugar34.2g of fatIf you were to have a Christmas cookie along with this, you’d be taking in over a thousand calories for a snack.There you have it. The top 5 Christmas themed drinks, that are the highest in calories.Could you make them fit into your diet?Anything is possible, but you wouldn’t be indulging too often on this if you were looking for weight loss or to just maintain a bit of control over the festive period.Again, as with everything moderation is key.#TrainSmartMy New 2018 Transformation Challenge kicks off January 8th .There has been a huge amount of interest in these classes this year and are sure to sell out.Don’t leave it too long to book.Contact me through the link below for more information.#TrainSmarthttps://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118DD Fitness: The top five highest calorie Christmas coffees was last modified: December 8th, 2017 by Emmet RusheShare 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:CHristmasCoffeeemmet rushefestiverushe fitnesslast_img read more

Google Apps Now Supports Multiple Domains

first_img3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Related Posts alex williams IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Multiple domain support is a standard of Microsoft Exchange. Multiple domain support is offered through its online services but there are limits on the number of domains available.Zoho also supports multiple domains. According to Raju Vegesna:“A typical business has multiple domains associated (imagine RWW having readwriteweb.com, rww.com, rrweb.com etc). Now you may want to create email addresses, subdomains etc for each of these domains. Supporting multiple domains lets you do things like create aliases that work with all domains. For example, you have alexw@readwriteweb.com, but you can easily create aliases so that alexw@rww.com and alexw@rrweb.com can point to your actual email address. There are several other advantages with supporting multiple domains. In our case, we have three divisions (Zoho, ManageEngine, WebNMS etc). For each of the divisions, we have separate email addresses with that domain name and then sub-domains, product names etc. Managing all these from a single console is a unified experience. That is how we internally use it. But we have several customers who use it in other ways.”Multiple domain support is available for Google Apps Premiere and Education edition users at no additional charge. Google Apps now has multi-domain support, allowing organizations with two or more domains to manage from a single control panel. Until now, Google Apps permitted one domain per account. That has become an issue, especially for larger organizations, migrating employees on multiple domains. Companies would either set up other domains as domain aliases or set up different Google Apps accounts for each domain.According to the blog !escunid , this is how the process worked before: Source: !escunid Online Business DevelopmentThe new multi-domain support is an admin control that allows people on different domains to keep their email addresses but see co-workers from other domains in the organization’s global address book.
