Foreign Affairs Minister Marjon Kamara has warned that unless concrete steps are taken to actualize the Paris agreement on climate change, the world stands to suffer its devastating consequences. She said while it is equally important to take a critical look at the prospects of financing and development goals, the issue which brought Member States together in New York is essential for all because the issue of climate change concerns the existence of our planet.According to a dispatch from New York, Minister Kamara was delivering a statement on behalf President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf at the High-Level signing ceremony of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on Friday. The agreement, which ambitiously aims to reduce greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, is intended to limit global warming by 2100 to “well below 2 degrees Celsius” or (3.6 degree F). Friday’s signing was seen as a major step towards the realization of the target goal, with over 175 countries signing on to the document.Minister Kamara said there can be no denying that climate change and its effects present an existential threat to the global community including Africa which is threatened by an ever advancing desert, soil erosion on ocean fronts as well as unpredictable rainy seasons. ‘’Ultimately, we are all on the same boat. We both take the difficult steps and make the future of our planet a high global priority or we put future generations at risk,” she indicated, adding, “The one responsibility that we all share as humans is to leave this planet better than we found it.” Minister Kamara, who joined many world leaders in signing the Paris Agreement, said that signing the binding and universal agreement signifies a renewed hope and commitment to pursue a set of policies and strategies aimed at addressing the adverse impacts of climate change; adding, “Liberia has already initiated actions toward the ratification of the agreement this year.” Speaking on steps being taken by the government of Liberia towards climate change, Minister Kamara indicated that since 2014, Liberia established a Climate Change Secretariat and developed a national low emission strategy which is being integrated into the country’s Agenda for Transformation. She said this strategy targets reduction in carbon emission, climate agriculture production and defense against coastal erosion. This strategy, according to Minister Kamara, has an implementation period of five years, with overreaching objectives of achieving the “well below 2 degree Celsius” target.She further informed world leaders that Liberia has also established a national adaptation program of action for climate change and a national biodiversity strategy and action plan for protection of biodiversity. “We are working closely with the private sector and civil society, including women and youth groups to provide education, training and heightening awareness to increase citizens’ participation in climate change activities,” Kamara informed the assembly.While lauding the progress being made by many countries in developing efficient renewable energy, Minister Kamara said the Paris Agreement charts a new path for global partnership to ensure that all nations have a chance of producing and using clean renewable energy. She, however, noted that significant increased financial flows and investments are required for the greening of world economies and therefore called on nations to rise to the challenge by taking urgent and robust actions using the Paris Agreement as an enabling platform. Addressing the world leaders earlier, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that the global community is racing against time and that the era of consumption without consequence was over. “The poor and most vulnerable must not suffer further from a problem they did not create,” he urged.U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who signed the document while holding his granddaughter, said that the signing marks a milestone in the global effort to fight climate change.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
CCJ consequential ordersOpposition leaderBharrat JagdeoPresident David GrangerThe People’s Progressive Party has released its proposals for consequential orders, in which it submitted that the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) order elections to be held by September 18, 2019 and urges the regional Court to protect Guyana from Constitutional abuse.The regional Court is expected to hand down its consequential orders on Friday. On Wednesday, the Opposition released to the media its full submissions on how it believes the country should proceed now that it is confirmed that the Government was defeated by a No-Confidence Motion last year.In the submission, the Opposition noted that the Court should order that the Cabinet, including the President, should have resigned but remain in office to hold elections within three months of June 18, when the CCJ had ruled that the December 21, 2018 passage of the No-Confidence Motion was valid.The Opposition also suggested that an order should be given for the President to announce a date for General and Regional Elections, no later than September 18, 2019. This, it was noted, is because the next general election is due in the first half of 2020.Hence, the effect of the consequential orders which the Attorney General and Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) are seeking would render the vote of no-confidence against the coalition entirely “ineffective and otiose”.“The vote of no-confidence, if given effect to, would have shortened the term of office of the Government by at least one year, the effect of the consequential order which they seek would be to permit the Government to serve out its full five-year term. This Honourable Court is urged not to sanction such a cynical and indeed transparent attempt to subvert the Constitution,” the Opposition argued in its submission.Furthermore, the Opposition said the regional Court should order that the current list of electors be used for the upcoming elections. The Opposition submitted that had there been elections back in March after the December passage of the motion, then the current list would have been used.Importantly, the parliamentary Opposition pointed out that there are no provisions in the law to postpone the hosting of polls to conduct House-to-House registration. The party detailed exactly why the October 31, 2018 list can still be used. The submissions also asked for liberty to apply.On the matter of the appointment of a new GECOM Chairman, the Opposition expressed concern that the Government may try to “draw out” the process of appointing a new Chairman. As such, it asked the Court to order the President appoint a Chairman within three days of being given a final list of six nominees not unacceptable to the President, arising out of consultations between the two sides.And noting that the Court challenges would have caused Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo and PPP Executive Secretary Zulficar Mustapha to incur great expenses on their part, the Opposition requested that the Court award costs.Govt’s submissionThe Government had previously released the proposals it submitted for consequential orders to the CCJ, in which it once again raised questions about the Court’s jurisdiction by claiming that the CCJ cannot set an election date.According to the consequential order proposals, which were released by the Attorney General’s chambers, the opposing parties are seeking consequential orders – like compelling the Government to hold elections in the three months it should have done in the first place—that are “contrary” to legal principles.The Government side claimed that the CCJ “has no jurisdiction to set the date for elections nor to dissolve Parliament”. This is even though President David Granger has failed to do either, in keeping with the constitutional provisions.The Government also claimed in its proposals that “there is no evidence that the President has failed to comply with his duties. Consequentially, there is no basis to order that the President act on his constitutional duty to set a date for elections or to dissolve Parliament”.Thus, the Government is seeking an order that allows the President, Prime Minister, Ministers, and Cabinet to remain in office until a President is sworn in after elections are held. The Attorney General cited Article 106 (7) to defend this position.However, Article 106 (6 and 7) says “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence”.Meanwhile, Article 106 (7) states that “Notwithstanding its defeat, the Government shall remain in office and shall hold an election within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine, and shall resign after the President takes the oath of office following the election”.

Sources said tailback Reggie Bush selected Joel Segal as his agent, but Carroll denied Bush picked an agent. Segal represents Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick. Carroll and Bush met with four agents while Bush met with three others separately. Bush will formally announce he is going pro by the end of the week. Offensive tackle Winston Justice reiterated Tuesday that he would go pro but will not make a formal announcement until the end of the week. The deadline to declare for the draft is Sunday. “I already made my decision, but I’ll announce it around Sunday or sometime before (the deadline),” Justice said. “I think I’m making an informed decision. I feel at ease. Everybody’s on board.” Ominously for USC, White made no effort to meet with Trojans coach Pete Carroll, who turns his famous recruiting skills on his underclassmen this week to get them to remain in school. White is the only underclassman who has not met with Carroll this week and also missed the first two days of spring-semester classes. Neither White nor Parker could be reached for comment. LOS ANGELES – USC tailback LenDale White selected an agent Tuesday, another step toward declaring himself for the NFL draft, according to sources. White, who was not in Los Angeles, still has not formally announced he is going pro. But sources said he selected agent Eugene Parker, who represents Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, New York Jets tailback Curtis Martin and former Dallas Cowboys tailback Emmitt Smith. Justice met with Carroll and athletic director Mike Garrett on Tuesday. “They’re pretty calm,” he said. “There’s no screaming or yelling.” Asked if he would change his mind before the deadline, Justice said, “no.” Carroll also met with safety Darnell Bing, who remains up in the air about his decision. Sources said Bing is trying to get a clear answer about his draft status. The NFL informed Bing he would be considered a second-to-third round draft pick, but Bing would like assurances he could work his way into the first round. Freshman defensive tackle Walker Lee Ashley was officially cleared by the NCAA and USC on Tuesday, making him eligible to compete in spring practice. Tailback Michael Coleman will undergo hip surgery today. His status for spring practice is uncertain. email@example.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WASHINGTON – America might welcome 28 million new immigrants in the coming decades under a pending U.S. Senate bill. Then again, it could be facing 10 times that number. Welcome to the world of fuzzy immigration math, where advocacy groups spout conflicting data on everything from population estimates to the costs and benefits of illegal workers. Southland residents following the year’s hottest policy debate said the dizzying array of numbers makes them skeptical of nearly all the statistics they see. “Grandma always said don’t believe anything you hear and only half of what you see,” said Linda Shehee of Azusa. The former Arcadia Unified School District secretary – who describes herself as frustrated by the influx of illegal immigrants, opposed to granting citizenship to the illegals and yet reluctant to advocate deportation – said she examines groups’ political biases when viewing their information. Even then, Shehee said, “They’re all basing their projections on a guess. I don’t think anyone really knows for sure.” The numbers, murky though they may be, will take on added importance in coming weeks. Members of Congress return to Washington today to take up the immigration debate anew. This time they will try to find common ground between a recently passed Senate measure that would give green cards to millions of illegal immigrants and a House bill from December that would either deport illegal immigrants or send them to jail. “This numbers debate is already having a significant influence on what Congress is doing,” said Tamar Jacoby, an immigration expert at the conservative Manhattan Institute. The statistics war, she added, “will become perhaps more central as we go into conference.” Explosive study Last month, Robert Rector, a senior fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank and top architect of the 1996 welfare reform law, released an explosive study on the impact of the Senate immigration bill. He found it would unleash a tide of 100 million new immigrants over the next two decades upon America’s soil. The numbers were calculated, in part, by counting anyone who came in on a temporary visa, based on the assumption that each eventually would become a permanent resident. The White House budget office, in contrast, declared the bill would add only 8 million new U.S. residents by 2016. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., did his own calculations and claimed it would bring 200 million new immigrants – a two-thirds increase in the current U.S. population. Jacoby and others say the battle over projections led to two major amendments to the Senate immigration bill. One, by Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California and Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico, would allow a maximum of 200,000 immigrants a year to come into the U.S. as temporary guest workers, down from 350,000. It also eliminated an escalator that would allow the number to grow each year. The other amendment, also sponsored by Bingaman, would cap at 650,000 the number of green cards the U.S. would issue for relatives and non-farm workers. Bingaman argued that if immigrant workers bring their relatives to the U.S., their numbers would rise to as high as 1.8 million a year. “We shouldn’t send this out of the Senate without knowing if we’re increasing legal permanent residents by four times or eight times or 12 times, which is very possible,” he said at the time. “We need to be somewhat prudent.” Meanwhile, the Heritage Foundation fit the new regulations into another study and found the Senate bill would lure 66 million new immigrants annually. And last week, another report came out by the National Foundation for American Policy, which describes itself as nonpartisan and whose executive director, Stuart Anderson, is a former GOP Senate aide and held top posts under President George W. Bush in what used to be the Immigration and Naturalization Service or INS. Anderson’s group, predicting 28.4 million new immigrants over 20 years, said 8.8 million already are in the country illegally and would merely have their status changed. The analysis assumes that most illegal immigrants and their relatives would not receive green cards. The group also assumes a smaller increase in the immediate relatives eligible for permanent residency. Skewed numbers? Whom one believes has a lot to do, of course, with the views one already holds on illegal immigration. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Huntington Beach, said he distrusts statistics such as Anderson’s showing a relatively low impact from the immigration bill. “Most of the establishment sources of information have dramatically underestimated the number of illegals that are here and that will be here given certain changes in the law,” Rohrabacher said. “The numbers are skewed,” he claimed. “There’s political pressure being placed on the calculators.” Meanwhile, Jacoby, who advocates the legalization of undocumented workers and a guest worker program, called the higher figures cited by the Heritage Foundation “disingenuous” and filled with “exaggerated threats.” The distrust extends to the very number of illegal immigrants believed to be in the U.S. The best guess by government officials is 12 million, while Rohrabacher declares the number to be closer to 30 million. The government estimates that for every permanent legal immigrant, 1.2 immediate relatives also are brought to America. Rohrabacher believes the average number is closer to eight. “We can talk all we want about how illegal immigration isn’t such a big problem, but what do your eyes see?” Rohrabacher said. “The problem is way beyond what even some of the most stringent anti-illegal immigration groups say.” Angela Kelley, director of the National Immigration Forum, concedes that advocates for illegal immigrants once were squeamish talking about the number of undocumented immigrants living in the U.S., but that has changed. “The reality of 12 million people is something you can’t walk away from,” she said. “It’s better to put the cards on the table and be honest, and in fact it supports our arguments for reform.” As for projections that waves of immigrants will invade the U.S., Kelley said, “I can’t help thinking that that’s aimed as a scare tactic. Opponents of immigration reform like to use big and scary numbers to, quite frankly, frighten the public.” firstname.lastname@example.org (202) 662-8731160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Milford were in control for pretty much the whole game, yet they only went in at half time one point up. Milford failed to turn dominance in scores and it took a goal for Muff with 5 minutes remaining in the first half to shake Milford into life. That goal put Muff two points clear but the boys rallied well and ended up going in at the break 7 to 1-3 up. In the second half it was one way traffic. There were always options and constant runners available for the man in possession which was great to see. Resolute defending stifled Muff to only getting three scores in the second half, mostly from frees. A goal from Cathal Mc Gettigan with ten minutes left killed the game off as a contest and Milford ran out easy winners, and really should have won by more after some wasteful wides in the last few minutes. A magnificent team performance was supplemented by superb performances by Pauric Curley, Chippie Barrett and Cathal McGettigan.The senior reserves also played championship last weekend and were held to a draw at home to Glenfin on a scoreline of 1-10 to 2-7. LadiesJunior Championship Quarter FinalMilford 6-13 Buncrana 0-1An outstanding performance from the girls last Sunday morning ensured that they booked their place in this years semi-final. Right from the very start Milford dominated possession with the forwards well on top and finding scores with almost every attack. Indeed if it wasn’t for three brilliant saves from the Buncrana keeper the game would have been effectively over at half time. As it was Milford went in at half time with the scoreboard reading 3-7 to 0-0. The second half pretty much followed the trend of the first with Milford again well on top. Amber Barrett was back to form again after her injury lay off and she was more than ably assited up front by the rest of the forward unit. Some of the movement and scores wouldn’t look out of place in Croke park and this was underpinned by a superb defensive display. The girls will put that performance behind them now and they know that they face a much sterner test against Dungloe on the 2nd September.Minors Milford 1-6 Fanad Gaels 2-14The minors crashed out of the championship last Wednesday night after a very disappointing second half. Milford got off to a great start with Cathal Mc Gettigan scoring a goal after his penalty rebounded off the crossbar straight back into his arms. It got even better for Milford when Fanad were reduced to 14 men after ten minutes when a Fanad defender struck Darragh Black. The sides went in at half time 1-4 to 7 but a disastrous second half saw the team collapse and limp out of the competition. The boys are disappointed but this is a good young team that will not be losing too many players and the experience of this year will hold them in good stead next year.Under 14’sHard luck to the under 14’s who were beaten in the county final last Friday night by Moville. To get to a county final is a great achievement and the whole team and management can be very proud.

EXCLUSIVE: A blind Donegal schoolgirl has made remarkable progress after having her first round of stem cell treatment in China.Little Keri Kelly from Buncrana was told by doctors that it may take months or even years for her to notice any improvement in her sight if any at all.But mum Tracey told Donegaldaily.com how Keri, 9, has shown remarkable progress after her first round of treatment at the Beike Clinic in Qingdao. “Before she could only see the shape of someone’s hand if it was an inch from their face. But now she can see your hand as far away as ten inches which is a huge step,” revealed Tracey.However Tracey said she is not getting carried away with the surprise early success of the treatment.“We are delighted because any improvement shows that we are doing the right thing and we have some chance of Keri being able to see.“The doctors have earned us that it could take between six and eight months before we see any more big improvements. “We just have to keep going and continue to get more treatments to see what we can do for Keri,” she said.The news will be welcomed by the people of Buncrana and Co Donegal who raised more than €40,000 to send Keri to China for the treatment.Tracey said that Keri could never have been given the chance to see again but for the kindness of people.“I cannot put into words how thankful we are to everyone. Hopefully now people can see that all their hard work and kindness may be paying off,” she said.Keri, who has been blind since birth after being born with optic nerve hypoplasia which means her optic nerves have never grown. Tracey revealed how Keri had to have a general anaesthetic and had to sit still for six hours while she had a lumbar puncture.“She was very good and has been all along. She is so brave. The only thing she was worried about was that she couldn’t get anything to it,” laughed Tracey.Tracey and Keri will stay in China until the end of the month where Keri will receive more stem cell treatment.DONEGALDAILY.COM – DONEGAL’S BIGGEST NEWS WEBSITE ADVERTISE FOR JUST €3..click www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comBLIND SCHOOLGIRL MAKES MIRACULOUS PROGRESS IN HER SEARCH FOR SIGHT was last modified: October 20th, 2011 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:ChinaKeri Kellystem cell treatmentTracey Kelly
