Residents without cellphone service in Region 9

first_imgOver the last few days, residents of Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo) have been significantly inconvenienced owing to the disruptions to mobile service from telecommunications giant, GTT.The mobile service went down on Saturday last, greatly impacting business operations and leisure activities in many areas across the Region.GTT mobile subscribers were unable to send or receive calls, text messages or access the Internet.Reports indicate that residents of North Rupununi and Central Rupununi have been particularly affected, since commercial activities are abundant in those areas.Residents have also expressed concern that GTT failed to promptly inform the public of the disruption to the service and to keep them updated on progress in addressing the matter.In a Facebook post, parliamentarian Alister Charlie vented about the lack of customer service.“Come on GTT, be professional and let the subscribers know exactly what is happening and how soon will the service be restored,” he posted.Contacted for a comment on the matter, the company explained that the disruption was as a result of damage to equipment at its Lethem facility.On Tuesday, GTT Public Relations Officer (PRO) Allison Parker advised that the information would be broadcast on the recently-commissioned radio station in the Region.According to the statement from the company, engineers are working to replace the equipment and conduct urgent repairs.In apologising for the inconvenience caused, the company announced that mobile services should be restored fully today.last_img read more

‘UL Regrets Child’s Death’

first_imgThe Vice President for University Relations at the University of Liberia, Norris Tweh, over the weekend expressed the institution’s deep regret over the recent death of a five year old boy while playing among debris at the university’s Fendell Campus. Romeo King, 5, died on Wednesday August 10, 2016, after he was crushed under debris from broken walls.Mr. Tweh said the boy’s death was unfortunate and announced that the Ministry of Public Works, in consultation with the UL administration, will remove debris and other structures that pose threats to residents in the area when funds are available.He, however, called communities residing near Fendell Campus to keep off the property as well as ensure that their children don’t loiter or play among the debris. He added that the sign posted at the property warning people not to trespass is being reinforced.Mr. Tweh said UL security personnel have been authorized to ward off people from the property to avoid another occurrence of the little boy’s tragic story.Concerning the development of the land, Mr. Tweh said the university is to shortly constitute the Fendell Land Development Committee (FLDC) to set up a bidding plan for architects to draw a blue print to develop the property.‘’A portion of the land will be used for agriculture and animal husbandry,” Mr. Tweh said. ‘’We hope to renovate structures in poor condition that will not interfere with the university’s normal calendar.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

College antics

first_imgMEMBERS of the gerrymandered California Senate, the great champions of democracy that they are, (once again) want to change the way Californians vote for president. On Monday, the Senate approved legislation that would effectively bypass the Electoral College. If enough other states passed similar legislation, California’s electoral votes wouldn’t go to the presidential candidate more Californians voted for, but the one who took the most votes nationwide. In other words, in 2004, Californians, despite voting overwhelmingly for John Kerry, would have handed a landslide electoral victory to George W. Bush. In theory, anyway. That’s assuming that electors – rabid partisans chosen by the Republican and Democratic establishments, respectively – could somehow be coerced into voting against their party loyalty. And that’s an optimistic assumption, at best. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! If this cockamamie idea sounds familiar, it’s because the Legislature passed (and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger wisely vetoed) identical legislation last year. If legislators are serious about getting rid of the Electoral College, they ought to push for doing so by the means the Constitution prescribes – a constitutional amendment. Meanwhile, legislation that’s sure to be vetoed, and which would only disenfranchise the state’s voters if signed into law, is a futile effort in the name of democracy. Let’s see our legislators do something about democracy where they actually can make a difference. Instead of passing this ill-fated symbolic gesture a second time, it would be nice if the Legislature would pass redistricting reform even once.last_img read more

Milan clubs meet city officials over plans to demolish San Siro

first_img“For me, San Siro is the history of football, it is a monument of Milan and therefore from here we should start again,” Sala wrote on Facebook.“Thanks to the explanations of Milan and Inter, which appeared today in some newspapers, it is finally evident to everyone that it is not the municipal administration that wants to give up the San Siro, it is the football clubs that intend to build a new stadium, more functional to their needs.”City authorities will meet with representatives from both clubs on Wednesday as part of an in-depth study on the project.The clubs want to build a new ground adjacent to the current San Siro, while the old stadium will make way for an area “dedicated to sports, entertainment, and shopping”.The project would require an investment of 1.2 billion euros ($1.34 billion), the clubs estimate.Sala has said the current ground, which is owned by the city, would still be standing to mark the stadium’s centenary in 2026 as it was included in the Milan-Cortina d’Ampezzo bid for that year’s Winter Olympics as site of the opening ceremony.0Shares0000(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The San Siro is the iconic home of AC Milan and Inter Milan, who have won 10 Champions Leagues between them © AFP/File / MARCO BERTORELLOMILAN, Italy, Sep 18 – Milan mayor Giuseppe Sala repeated his vehement opposition to the demolition of the San Siro Stadium, ahead of a meeting Wednesday with the city’s two clubs to discuss the future of the iconic stadium.AC Milan and Inter Milan, who share the stadium to the west of the city, have launched their bid to knock down the San Siro and build a new 60,000-capacity home on the same site.last_img read more

Wind gusts of 30-40 mph caused snow drifts of 3 feet or higher, said meteorologist Mike Sowko of the National Weather Service office in Cheyenne, Wyo. By Tuesday afternoon the skies had cleared and winds diminished. DENVER – A winter storm delivered a White Christmas to parts of the Midwest and Colorado, causing some traffic accidents and flight delays but no major problems with fewer people traveling on Tuesday. Denver saw up to 7 inches of snow, resulting in a handful of flight delays. United Airlines canceled about 50 flights in Denver and some in Chicago to catch up from delays caused by an earlier Midwest storm. Since Tuesday is a light travel day, United spokeswoman Robin Urbanski said the airline was using it to move planes and crews to the airports where they need to be to carry holiday travelers home. She said flights weren’t crowded, so passengers on flights canceled Tuesday were moved to others. Besides Colorado, snow fell in parts of Wyoming, Minnesota and the Nebraska Panhandle, sometimes making travel difficult. A semitrailer slid off Interstate 80 in Wyoming and overturned near Chappell, and numerous other vehicles went into ditches on the interstate and other highways, Cheyenne County sheriff’s Deputy Fred Wiedeburg said. No injuries were reported. last_img read more

Mourinho eyes ‘perfect’ end to season after Man United reach Europa League final

first_img1 Jose Mourinho is eyeing the “perfect” end to his first season in the Old Trafford dugout after Manchester United reached the Europa League final.Having travelled to Holland, Turkey, Ukraine, France, Russia, Belgium and Spain, the arduous continental campaign has brought a shot at glory.Ajax lie in wait in the Stockholm finale on May 24 after United edged through a frantic, tempestuous semi-final against Celta Vigo.Mourinho’s side were made to sweat as Thursday’s 1-1 draw saw them through 2-1 on aggregate, giving the Portuguese the chance to add to this season’s EFL Cup and Community Shield successes.“In the end, when the game was difficult, when they were better than us and we were in trouble and not playing well, it was that mentality, that desire, that togetherness that made the boys fight until the end,” Mourinho said.“The final means an opportunity to win a trophy, to be back in the Champions League, and to end the season in the perfect way because it is the last match of the season.”United will be without a host of key players in Sweden, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ashley Young, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Tim Fosu-Mensah out for the remainder of the campaign.Eric Bailly will also sit out the Europa League final after being sent off for raising his hand to John Guidetti shortly after Facundo Roncaglia cancelled out Marouane Fellaini’s header.Celta goalscorer Roncaglia was also dismissed in a flare-up that frustrated boss Mourinho, who told BT Sport: “I didn’t see the incident, but he was phenomenal.“The game was emotional until the end for everyone. Some kept control in better ways than others.“I don’t know but I think it was with Roncaglia, right? Roncaglia’s not new in these kind of situations and probably Eric was a bit naive. We lose a very important player for the final and we don’t have many.”Considering the absentees and the fact Europa League glory offers silverware and Champions League qualification, Mourinho will again rotate with the final in mind.Premier League trips to Tottenham and Southampton are followed by Crystal Palace’s visit to Old Trafford – a match the Portuguese has vowed to make “a lot” of changes for.He explained: “Obviously now Ajax think about the final. Their league finishes on Sunday and they will have 10 days to prepare. We have three league matches to play.“Hopefully Crystal Palace don’t need (anything from) the last game because I am going to make a lot of changes. “It doesn’t matter what happens. And nobody can blame us, because we have a final three days later.” Jose Mourinho celebrates Manchester United reaching the Europa League final last_img read more
