Mae’s Schools cultural wear fiascoThe issue involving the nine-year-old pupil of Mae’s Schools who was reportedly told he was dressed inappropriately for the institution’s May 25th Culture Day will take centre stage during the 12th Annual National Toshaos Council (NTC) Conference, which is slated for July.The letter the school reportedly gave with instructions for the Culture Day observanceThis was according to NTC Chairman Joel Fredericks in a recent interview with Guyana Times.The incident has garnered much public attention in recent days, with many calling on the school to apologise but the matter recently took on a new dimension when the lad’s mother felt disrespected by the school’s response on the issue which, according to her, painted the picture that she was a liar.The NTC Chairman, who had earlier bemoaned the lack of social cohesion regarding the issue, told this newspaper that Guyanese should respect each other, noting that the country has six races with diverse cultures.This publication questioned the official on NTC’s plans to engage the Education and Social Cohesion Ministries given the public outcry that the “inappropriate” comment caused.“The Ministry of Education is already on our agenda and within that slot we will deal with it; we will raise at the highest level,” Fredericks noted.He reiterated that it would be a topic of discussion at the annual event, questioning why Indigenous persons were not being treated equally.“Yes; and I think cultural awareness in some of the institutions is needed. How some are accepted and Indigenous are not accepted, why is it? People need to ask questions,” he noted.“One month we have our celebration, but I don’t know if Mae’s was a part of that,” the NTC Chairman said.Just recently, Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Minister Sydney Allicock confirmed that the matter was under investigation. In fact, he expressed surprise at the incident, telling media operatives last week that it went against Government’s move to bring social cohesion and national unity among all the many ethnic groups, through various efforts.In the meantime, the Amerindian Peoples Association (APA) and Red Thread joined with the NTC requesting that the school apologise. At last Thursday’s picketing exercise, the mother of the traumatised pupil said she was “very dissatisfied” with the school’s response.The administration of Mae’s in a statement had said that all students were briefed on the activity, noting that no clothing that exposed them was allowed.“All children were told that plain t-shirts and tights/shorts should be worn under clothes that would otherwise expose them,” the school highlighted.The school also said that the students of the class of the child were to dress as Portuguese and said that the child turned up in Amerindian wear and was told that it may be an issue since he was exposed. His mother, the school stressed, gave him a t-shirt.“At no point was any teacher engaged on this issue either by the child or his mother. The child settled into his classes without incident. There was no crying or other discernible upset displayed by him that warranted the attention of the class teacher, head teacher, or administration of the school then or at any other time throughout the school day. The fact that this student is made the subject of national headlines is regrettable.”This description of events prompted the mother to say that she will not be sending her child back to the school in the new academic year as she was almost brought to the point of tears.“It makes me out to be a liar and I am very disappointed because exactly [what] happened to my son that is what I said and for them to come out and say that; I am very disappointed…it really took a toll on me …I thought about my son in all of this and I’m thinking, how could you?” she stressed.Michael McGarrel of the APA had noted that the statement issued by the school was a waste of time and argued that the administration should have plainly offered an apology for its actions.

– Ramjattan introduced as AFC Leader, not PM candidate– as APNU/AFC coalition launches campaignA Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Presidential Candidate David Granger on Friday evening pleaded with Guyanese to give the incumbent coalition another five years in office.ANPU Leader David Granger and AFC Leader Khemraj Ramjattan joined by Mrs Granger and APNU General Secretary Joseph Harmon at Friday’s campaign launchHe made this request to Guyanese at D’Urban Park Stadium where the coalition launched its 2020 elections campaign ahead of the upcoming polls set for March 2.Granger noted that five years ago, Guyanese put their faith in the coalition and it did not let them down. As such, he asked for another five years so that his Administration can continue the progress it started in 2015.“We have a plan for the next decade. Five years ago, you put your faith in us [and] we did not let you down. We are asking you for five more years to complete what we started,” he pleaded, which was met with roars from supporters.The APNU Leader noted that he is a “see-far” man and with Guyana embarking on a new era of development, the coalition has established a “Decade of Development” (2020-2029) work plan.AFC Youth Leader Juretha Fernandes“I’m thinking 10 years ahead because I have a vision for the good life for all Guyanese – happy households, happy families, a happy country… We are building back the economy. We have a plan… We spent five years fixing things that they broke up that is why we need five more years to develop this country,” Granger asserted.He went on to talk about the newfound riches offshore Guyana, noting that massive transformation awaits the country. The Head of State told supporters that he named December 20 as National Petroleum Day to remind Guyanese of the development that is awaiting the country – something which he promised to ensure that they benefit from.Supporters at D’Urban Park on Friday evening for the Coalition’s elections campaign launch“Guyanese will never be poor again. The oil wealth belongs to you and this Government will make sure that you benefit from that oil wealth… We are going to ensure that the oil wealth goes to the people who need it the most, the people like, people from Regions One to 10, ordinary people… APNU/AFC like ordinary people that’s why we’ve come into Government to give you the benefit of this bountiful harvest – the petroleum…,” the APNU Leader posited.According to Granger, a Government decides what goes to the people and how much, and it will be no different when it comes to the oil riches.“We have decided that you will get benefits of oil and you will get it over the next 10 years during this Decade of Development. We are your best guarantee to ensure that oil money is well spent… Your country is in good hands with the APNU/AFC. Trust me, trust the coalition,” he declared.The APNU Leader reflected on projects his Administration undertook over the past years such as the establishment of four new towns throughout the country. He noted that they plan to continue this until all 10 Administrative Regions are run by towns so that they have better services and development. He further outlined plans the coalition has to continue the work it started such as fixing the country’s electricity woes and completing constitutional reform.“Give us the chance to make this country develop to benefit all of you and you’ll see the transformation. What you saw over the five years, you ain’t see nothing yet. My friends, you have good reasons to vote for APNU/AFC… We find out what the people need and what they want, and we solve their problems and satisfy their needs. In short, APNU/AFC deserves another chance,” Granger contended.Don’t stop the progressMeanwhile, also addressing supporters was Granger’s running mate at the upcoming polls, AFC Leader Khemraj Ramjattan, who reminded supporters that Guyana is sitting on the threshold of greatness and endless possibilities, and noted that only the coalition has the leadership the country needs to enjoy a “good life”.Ramjattan, who was not introduced as the coalition’s prime ministerial candidate posited that come March 2, Guyanese will renew their faith in the APNU/AFC coalition and the progress it has made since 2015. However, Ramjattan noted that while they have managed to outperform the previous Administration in just five years, they still have lots more to do and as such urged supporters not to let this progress stop.“We have invested $3.2 billion for new and improved hospitals and health facilities, don’t stop the progress. For education, in 2019 alone we have invested $5.4 billion for new and improved schools and colleges, don’t stop that progress. We have looked after the situation of our pensioners who today get $20,500, don’t stop the progress. We have reduced corporate tax from 40 per cent to 20 per cent, don’t stop the progress. We have instituted VAT [value-added tax] exemption for small businesses earning less than $15 million annually and we’ve established a revolving fund for small businesses, don’t stop the progress,” Ramjattan stated.The AFC Leader went on to outline that since 2016, the coalition Government has spent $43 billion on expanding roads and bridges while also building and strengthening capacity to boost the public security sector.“Comrades, your choice in this election is clear… The APNU/AFC coalition represents the best choice for Guyana. It represents hope, opportunity and prosperity for all and not just a few. It represents the possibility of every Guyanese having a good life… We can do great things when we work together and four APNU/AFC coalition for the last four years is proof of that and so I ask for your support, your vote on March 2,” Ramjattan stated.Also speaking at the launch was AFC Youth Leader, Juretha Fernandes, who urged young people to grab the opportunities that are available with the budding oil and gas sector so they can claim their place in the country’s history in building a new Guyana.“Ten years from now, we will now be able to point fingers at our current leaders and ask “what are you doing for us”. Ten years from now, we will be leaders. Ten years from now, fingers will be pointed at us. Therefore, I urge you here today to stand up for yourselves and grab every opportunity that this has provided to you,” she posited.Fernandes went on to underscore the importance of the upcoming General and Regional Elections, telling her peers that they cannot take their votes for granted.“Your vote is not just a vote for today, your vote is for the future of your children, the future of our nation,” she posited.
WHITTIER – A bill that would create a statewide pre-kindergarten program for all 4-year-olds has the support of Whittier-area educators – as long as the state provides the money to fund it, officials said Wednesday. Linda Welch, assistant superintendent at the East Whittier City School District, said AB 1236 by Assemblyman Gene Mullin, D-San Francisco – also known as the Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2008 – could be great for children, but only if the state picks up the tab without shifting the financial burden onto local school districts. The bill calls for a “kindergarten readiness program” for 4-year-olds to be implemented by public schools by the 2011-12 fiscal year. It would make three-hour readiness classes funded by the state available to pre-kindergarten students on a voluntary basis. But Welch said her district would prefer that the state first “fully fund the programs we have going on now, before adding another to our plate.” Mullin’s proposal also contains a component that would change the starting age for incoming kindergartners. It would move the birthday cut-off date for eligible kindergartners from Dec. 2 to Sept. 1, beginning in 2011. In an average class of 20 kindergartners, there may be two or three students whose birthdays fall after Sept. 1, Maya said. Moving back the cut-off date would be beneficial because some of the younger children lack the maturity for kindergarten, Welch said. “Typically, you can walk into a classroom and pick out the 4-year-olds,” she said. But Maya believes that removing children whose birthdays fall in that three-month gap could hurt districts that are already experiencing declining enrollments. “We would need to be very careful about that. It should be something we transition into over time,” Maya said. email@example.com (562) 698-0955 Ext. 3051 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But the bill has strong support from the California Teachers Association, one of its sponsors. On Wednesday, CTA President Barbara Kerr testified in Sacramento on behalf of the proposal. “AB 1226 will help prepare all students … and make sure they are ready for kindergarten,” Kerr said in a statement. “It will provide all California children with an equal opportunity to succeed.” Marty Maya, assistant superintendent at the Little Lake City School District in Santa Fe Springs, said the program would be a “positive way to ensure the readiness of students is where it should be.” The bill also would make kindergarten compulsory beginning in 2010.
1 England boss Roy Hodgson insists it is “unfair” if the responsibility for resting Raheem Sterling falls on him alone.Hodgson dropped Sterling for Sunday’s 1-0 win over Estonia in the Euro 2016 qualifier after the winger complained of fatigue.He refused to criticise the 19-year-old, and instead told his Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers he must do his bit to ensure the player gets back to his best.“We do have to take players’ workload into consideration, and there are going to be times in top league teams where players suffer from some sort of physical and mental fatigue, but I think it’s a bit unfair if all the expectations to give the player a little bit of a break fall on my shoulders,” he said, after the omission drew an angry backlash from fans.Hodgson, however, says he was happy to leave Sterling out of his team for the game in Tallinn and maintains the teenager has done nothing wrong.“He broke into the Liverpool team and had a fantastic season and then went to the World Cup… He is only a 19-year-old,” Hodgson said.“It is not as simple as the training you are having may be taking a bit of juice from your legs.“There is an awful lot going on in your head as well so perhaps (the reason he is tired) is quite simply (because) the season has not started as well for Liverpool, he is in the spotlight for England and Liverpool… Maybe that has had some effect. I don’t know. It’s a theory.” Roy Hodgson
FOSA which is making its debut on continental football will now progress to the first round where they will play Mauritian opponents AS Port Louis 2000 who beat Comoros side Ngazi Sport 5-2 on Tuesday.AFC Leopards head coach Robert Matano made good his intention of making drastic changes from the team that played in the first leg.AFC Leopards will be seeking at least a 1-0 win to progress to the first round.Gabriel Andika dropped to the bench with new signing Jairus Adira starting between the sticks while there was a two-fold change in the defence.Dennis Sikhayi started at right back ahead of youngster Yussuf Mainge who scored in the first leg while Mike Kibwage started in defence at the expense of Robinson Kamura who dropped to the bench.Joseph Kuria also came into the starting 11 partnering Victor Majjid in midfield with Collins Okoth missing.

“Pep Guardiola has been charged for wearing a political message, specifically a yellow ribbon, in breach of the FA’s kit and advertising regulations,” the FA statement said.“He has until 6:00 pm (1800 GMT) on Monday 5 March 2018 to respond to the charge.”Following events last year surrounding Catalonia’s bid to break away from Spain, which included a referendum and a proclamation of independence, both deemed illegal, authorities jailed several leaders of the movement.The City manager, who was born in Catalonia, has previously explained his reasons for wearing the ribbon.Referring to the first two independence leaders to be jailed, he said in December: “I do that because in Spain two specific people who defend something like the vote, something the people in command do not agree (with), are in prison. It’s unfair.“To make a rebellion on something like that, you have to be something tough to be in prison. And they are still there. So, while they are not out, always here (points to ribbon) will be shared with me.“Because, OK, they can suspend me for doing that, but the other people are in jail. If they want to suspend me — UEFA, Premier League, FIFA — it’s OK.”The City boss explained his stance in response to comments from Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, who questioned whether the ribbon was within the rules and claimed he would not be allowed to do a similar thing.Last year world governing body FIFA backed down in its row with British football authorities over the wearing of poppies, worn to remember war dead.England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland had previously been fined by FIFA for wearing or displaying poppies, which FIFA said were “political symbols”.FIFA’s climbdown meant none of the British home nations had to pay their fines.Guardiola’s Manchester City team face Arsenal in the League Cup final on Sunday.

Donegal Deputy Charlie McConalogue has reiterated his strong opposition to the Government’s property tax plans, saying families in mortgage difficulty simply cannot afford to pay hundreds of euro in extra taxes on their home.The Fianna Fáil TD was speaking as the Revenue Commissioners prepare to issue letters to homeowners Donegal and across the country from next week.“It is deeply unfair to expect homeowners, who cannot afford their home as it is, to pay hundreds of euro in extra tax on that home. These are people who have already paid significant stamp duty, are now deep in negative equity and are struggling to pay their mortgages and household bills,” said Deputy McConalogue. “I strongly believe that it is wrong to tax the family home. I also believe it is completely wrong to introduce any form of property tax at time of unprecedented mortgage crisis and a complete failure on behalf of Government and the banks to address this crisis.“Under Fine Gael and Labour’s plan, a home in Donegal worth €150,000 will pay approximately €315 in property taxes. I have spoken to so many families who are genuinely distressed about how they will afford to pay this, at a time when they can barely pay their mortgage and other household bills.“The latest mortgage arrears figures out this week show that one in every four mortgages are in some form of difficulty. In the last quarter alone, an additional 6,500 families have fallen into mortgage distress. Behind these figures are families who are trying to lead normal lives while knowing there is a real prospect they may lose their home. The Government cannot in good conscience hit these families with property taxes on top of everything else, while failing to address the ever deepening mortgage crisis.” DONEGAL FAMILIES CAN’T AFFORD PROPERTY TAX – TD was last modified: March 8th, 2013 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:DONEGAL FAMILIES CAN’T AFFORD PROPERTY TAX – TD
Broadcasting pioneer Ralph Edwards, who spotlighted stars and ordinary people as host of the popular 1950s show “This Is Your Life,” died Wednesday of heart failure. He was 92. Edwards, whose career as producer and host included “Truth or Consequences” and “People’s Court,” died in his sleep at 9:13 a.m. with his family at his side in his West Hollywood home, publicist Justin Seremet said. Edwards first hit it big in radio in 1940 with “Truth or Consequences,” a novelty show in which contestants who failed to answer trick questions – the “truth” – had to suffer “the consequences” by performing some elaborate stunt. Then came television. The Federal Communications Commission approved commercial broadcasts beginning on July 1, 1941, after a few years of experimental broadcasts, and NBC’s New York station was the first to make the changeover. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “Amazingly enough, I did ‘Truth or Consequences’ on television in July 1941. It was the first commercial show for NBC,” Edwards recalled. “A 10-second commercial was $9,” he said. The United States’ entry into World War II five months later disrupted TV’s progress. “Truth or Consequences,” which prospered on radio in the interim, returned to television in 1950. Earlier that same year, the citizens of little Hot Springs, N.M., voted 1,294-295 to change the town’s name to Truth or Consequences. Edwards had promised to broadcast the radio show from the town that agreed to the change. “In those days, nothing seemed impossible,” he once said. Emmy award-winning “Truth or Consequences” aired for 38 consecutive years on radio and television, and launched the career of Edwards’ handpicked successor Bob Barker. “This Is Your Life” also was born on radio and then migrated to television, running on NBC-TV from 1952 to 1961. It featured guests, many of them celebrities, who were lured in on a ruse, then surprised by Edwards announcing, “This is your life!” Relatives and old friends then would be brought on to reminisce about the guest. Among the people he caught unaware were Marilyn Monroe, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, Bob Hope, Andy Griffith, Buster Keaton, Barbara Eden, Bette Davis, Shirley Jones, Jayne Mansfield and Carol Channing. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
