Region 5 completes 2019 work programme

first_imgThe Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) administration has completed its work programme for 2019.This was according to Deputy Regional Executive Officer (DREO) Sherwin Wellington while addressing the Region Five Regional Democratic Council (RDC) on Friday.Deputy Regional Executive Officer (DREO) Sherwin WellingtonHe told the gathering that the administration was given $436,160,000 under its current work programme for 2019.“To date we would have expended those funds. But on the capital side even though we would have expended all of our money, with the savings that we got, we were able to purchase additional things which we had put in the budget and were not approved in all five programme hands. We would have spent all of our allocations on the current budget. We’ve just a few more vouchers to add in, so all the money we would have gotten from the Parliament, we would have spent.”Region Five has been plagued with the RDC not being able to have successful meetings ever since January 2016. In fact, over the past year, the Council has not been able to have any fruitful discussion.Wellington, who was at the time serving as the Clerk of the RDC, acknowledged that the lack of meetings has had a negative impact on the Region.He took the opportunity to call on Councillors to unite for the betterment of the Region.“When you sit here, you sit as a council putting aside party affiliation. So, as a council, you will be able to make decisions that will represent all and that would benefit everyone. So, from 2020, let us all work together and we will get progress when we work together,” the DREO told the RDC.Meanwhile, Wellington said that funds from other Ministries which were pumped into the Region have also been exhausted.last_img read more

Stater Bros. helping to sell NASCAR tickets
first_imgThe ongoing promotion with Staters Bros., the presenting sponsor of the Feb. 24 Busch race, is unique, according to Zucker. It’s the only promotion in the country where fans can get a free $55 Cup race ticket for buying $55 of groceries through Feb.9. “It’s been an amazing deal,” said Zucker, “we’ve had a steady line of fans redeeming their receipts the past three days. We have moved more than 1,000 tickets and it’s getting bigger each day.” Receipts must be dated through Feb. 9 and must be redeemed by Feb.14. Zucker said fans have traveled to the Fontana track from as far as Barstow and Orange County. “It’s actually part of the `Race to 55 Sweepstakes”‘ said Zucker. “In addition to the free ticket, we’re drawing for 55 prizes.” Tops among the prizes will be a ride on the Goodyear blimp and the opportunity to wave the green flag during Cup qualifying Feb. 23. “I’ve been most impressed by the number of families in line,” Zucker said. “Mom and dad might have been here before, now they’re bringing the kids.” On Monday, fans will get an opportunity to meet Carl Edwards. He’ll be at the speedway ticket booth from noon to 1 p.m. and will hand out a pound of See’s Candy to the first 200 who purchase a ticket. With the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series Auto Club 500 just around the corner, California Speedway president Gillian Zucker has started the full-court press to sell tickets. In the process, she has enlisted the help of partner Stater Bros. and Cup driver Carl Edwards. The Feb. 25 race is second on the Nextel Cup schedule. center_img Edwards will have quite a two-day experience in California.

Tennis: It’s curtains for Kuerten again

first_img“I tried to do some (different) things out there,” Hingis said. “I wanted to come in more and I won a lot of points at the net, so that’s satisfying. Maybe I can bring that in against the top players as well.” Sharapova, ranked No. 1 the world, began her title defense with a 7-6 (5), 6-4 victory over Michaella Krajicek. INDIAN WELLS – Martina Hingis led the expected parade of seeded players into the third round of the Pacific Life Open, and former finalist Gustavo Kuerten bowed out in the first round of the men’s draw Friday. The third-seeded Hingis, the tournament winner in 1998 and a two-time runner-up, took her first step toward a possible semifinal meeting with top-seeded defending champion Maria Sharapova, beating 16-year-old Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark 6-1, 6-3. Kuerten, a three-time French Open champion and an Indian Wells finalist in 2003, is struggling in his comeback from a hip injury. The Brazilian star is 2-6 this year after his 7-6 (5), 6-2 loss to Juan Martin del Potro, an Argentine ranked No.65. “Especially the first set, I had my chances,” said Kuerten, who played only one ATP Tour match last year. “I think the match could be very different if I had won the set. I would be much more confident. Instead of that, I was very frustrated because I knew to go all the way around (to win), the three (sets) would be really tough for me. I just need to get a little bit more consistency, and then just getting maybe some more endurance, too, would help me.” The 96-player men’s draw, like the women’s, gave byes to the 32 seeded players, so none of them were in action Friday, when Americans Vince Spadea and Paul Goldstein were among the first-round winners. No. 7 Jelena Jankovic, No. 8 Anna Chakvetadze and No. 11 Shahar Peer all advanced in straight sets, while No. 14 Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia and No. 19 Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic survived three-set challenges. Hantuchova, the 2002 tournament champion, outlasted Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, 6-2, 2-6, 6-1. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Focus on Carolina: Can the 49ers stop McCaffrey?

first_imgThe most dynamic player in the NFL not named Patrick Mahomes looms as a threat to the 49ers existence as an unbeaten team.Christian McCaffrey is the rare kind of guy who can ruin a defense all by himself, which is what he’ll try to do when the Carolina Panthers invade Levi’s Stadium on Sunday.“I mean, he creates a lot of problems,” Buccaneers defensive coordinator Todd Bowles said of the speedy third-year running back from Stanford. “I don’t think you can stop him with one guy.

The ultimate flight!

first_imgWas it the ultimate flight and ultimate ailrine meal? Well if you love the 70s the answer is a resounding yes and probably no matter what era is your favourite, this culinary delight – and flight – ticked every box.The meal served between Honolulu and Nadi on the delivery flight of Qantas’s latest and 75th Boeing 737-800 adorned in a 1970s retro colour scheme was designed by culinary master Neil Perry.Mr Perry took some 70s favourites and gave them the famous Rockpool signature contemporary twist using the best seasonal produce.Mr Perry explains; “These dishes were on the dinner party menu in the 70s and are timeless and delicious. Whilst we stayed true to the original concept, over the decades palates have evolved and quality ingredients have become more easily available so we have introduced some subtle twists to the classics.” Our 70s experience started with a Hawaiian flavour – the famous Mai Tai. Invented in fact at Trader Vic’s restaurant in Oakland, California in 1944, Mai Tai is an adaption of the Tahitian word for “good”.And it was so good that its inventor Victor Bergeron was hired by the Royal Hawaiian hotel to develop the drink adding pineapple juice. And adding to the 70s theme the three flight attendants, Peta, Amy and Jasmine were adorned in the stunning Pucci designed vibrant green uniforms with floral dresses.The Mai Tai’s were quickly followed by Hore d’oeuvres from the 70s. Stuffed tomatoes, devils on horseback, chicken liver pate and stuffed eggs.The big favourite was the devils on horseback – prunes stuffed with mango chutney and wrapped in bacon and served hot.Entrée was a choice between consommé printanier and smoked salmon pillows with pickled cucumber and melba toast. The consommé printanier is a delicious chicken based dish with carrot, turnip, peas, beans and asparagus tips but for me it was the smoked salmon and icy cold champagne, that had replaced the Mai Tias.Main course was a choice of four magnificent dishes. And from next month Qantas will be progressively offering four main courses to all economy passengers on international flights. What is more, the airline is not only doubling the offering but doubling the size of the portions. Qantas is also offering something you could never do in the 70s – online ordering of your preference. But back to the 70s classic mains and they were indeed classic! Mushroom vol au vent, lobster thermidor, duck a l’orange or beef wellington.I couldn’t go past the lobster thermidor which was mouth watering to use a 70s phrase.And the sides? Waldorf salad, peas bonne femme and potatoes dauphinoise. The Waldorf salad brought a smile as I flash backed to the famous John Cleese 1970s classic series Fawlty Towers, where an entire episode was built around the bumbling efforts by Basil Fawlty to create a Waldorf salad for an American couple.Luckily for us Qantas decided not to roll out 1970s white wines such as Moselle and instead served what has become a classic of the current decade – Shaw and Smith SB.We were really on the ultimate nostalgia trip with wonderful memories flooding back.I was taken back to wonderful teenage days when my mother, Una, put on dinner parties that became legendary. And the sweets capped it off.Sherry trifle and chocolate mousse. I couldn’t resist the sherry trifle just to see if it was a good as mum’s. It was.Of course delivery flights are very special and particularly one built around nostalgia for the flying kangaroo and the late James Strong, who the plane is named after.But Qantas is clearly on the rise after a few tough years and one gets the feeling that the retro 737 is a symbol of a new Qantas – revitalised, engaged and committed to the travelling public.Geoffrey Thomas travelled to Seattle as guest of Qantas and Boeing.last_img read more

The Johannesburg Stock Exchange Leads by Example

first_imgCEOs Know Campaign: The Johannesburg Stock ExchangeTsabeng Nthite – Inspired by the need to build a positive  reputation for South Africa, Brand South Africa – through its digital campaign themed ‘CEOs Know’ this week interviewed Ms Nicki Newton-King, the CEO of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) who shared her thoughts on why the JSE leads by example.“We are really proud of the way the JSE leads by example, we have world class financial markets in a developing economy – something that takes many of our international clients by quite considerable surprise. The JSE is also one of the world’s top 20 equity markets, one of the world’s top 10 derivatives markets, and one of the world’s top 5 bond markets.”The CEOs Know campaign is in  collaboration with Business Leadership South Africa  and aims to position South Africa as in ideal investment destination. The CEOs Know Campaign features various CEO’s from  multinational corporations based in South Africa, who share insights behind their continued investment into South Africa.The JSE continues to dominate the Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) region, representing 38% of all listed companies and 83% of total market capitalisation in the region in 2012. In fact, 68 of sub-Saharan Africa’s 100 largest companies in terms of market capitalisation are listed on the JSE, including the five largest companies in Africa. In addition to  being the most advanced stock exchange in the region, the JSE is also among the global top 20 of exchanges in  market capitalisation and turnover. With a market capitalisation of 159% of GDP in 2012, South Africa also has one of the largest equity markets in the world, relative to the size of its economy.Touching on the recent transition in political leadership which led to Cyril Ramaphosa being elected as President of the Republic – Newton-King says that this change has brought about a sense of renewed hope – not only for South Africans, but also for foreign investors.“When foreign investors have come to talk to us recently – they started out with the question ‘is the political change for real’ and what we are able to confidently tell them is that this change has imbued our people with a real sense of home and optimism. They ask us about the Rule of Law, and whether or not we all respect their rights and of course we proudly say that we have one of the world’s most respected Constitutions and one of the most respected judiciary – and these are enormously positive things to say about our country.“This country is the most extraordinary place to live in, there is a beat that you wake up to every single day. I am inspired by the diversity that we have as a competitive advantage in this country,” concluded Newton-King.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
