Govt announces close to $1B in contracts

first_imgPresident David GrangerDirector General of the Ministry of the Presidency, Joseph HarmonThe coalition Government has announced that it has given its approval for the awarding of close to $1 billion in contracts— ranging from road works to hydropower.During a press conference on Wednesday, Ministry of the Presidency Director General Joseph Harmon read out a litany of contracts that were awarded by the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board (NPTAB) and approved.The single biggest contract was worth US$2.251 million, for the supply and installation of a 150 kW hydropower plant at Chiung River, Kato, Region Eight. According to Harmon, this contract was awarded to B&J Civil Works. Other contracts dealt with road works, rehabilitation of schools, and the construction of bridges.But this comes at a time when the Government is supposed to be in caretaker mode after losing a No-Confidence Motion (NCM). But Harmon explained the Government’s understanding of what it means to be a caretaker government. Some of the limitations on their power, according to Harmon, include restrictions on overseas travel by the President or ministers.“In its interim mode, the Government shall exercise restraint by not engaging in any initiatives that are likely to be considered controversial, such as embarking on new policy initiatives, programmes or projects including the signing of new international agreements or embarking on new major infrastructural projects”.“Secondly, to attend to matters considered urgent and in the public interest, such as matters of security, the maintenance of public infrastructure and systems for public health, housing and education and other routine functions. We will continue to implement projects approved by Parliament and in respect of which, contracts have been signed and work commenced before the interim period”.According to Harmon, the Government will also ensure that new projects carried out will not be too difficult to carry out. At the same time, however, Harmon insisted that the Government still retains its full array of powers.“Cabinet agreed that the Government retains its full powers that is Executive, statutory and common law. Ministers shall continue to exercise jurisdiction and responsibility for all agencies and departments that come under their portfolio”.Further, he added that all public service rules remain in force and applicable and the (armed services) are expected to continue to perform and execute their statutory duties.Caretaker rebuffedIt was only last month that the presence of a Trinidadian Minister at the Guyana Government’s investment outreach in Trinidad and Tobago had drawn criticism from a lawmaker in the twin island Republic. The lawmaker had urged his government to maintain neutrality when dealing with Guyana’s caretaker government.The lawmaker in question was Trinidad Member of Parliament Rodney Charles, who represents Naparima. He was quoted in Trinidad’s Newsday publication berating the twin island’s Energy Minister, Franklin Khan, for being in attendance at the event.The event, which was picketed by pro-Opposition supporters— who held placards urging the coalition to comply with the Constitution— was held by Guyana’s government at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Port-of-Spain. But Charles pointed out to Minister Khan that a question mark hangs over Guyana’s government following the Caribbean Court of Justice rulings.The parliamentarian was quoted reminding Khan that the CCJ ruled that the Guyana Government should operate as a caretaker government with the main purpose of calling elections as soon as possible.“The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), the highest Court in Guyana, recently ruled that the present government in Guyana led by President David Granger should operate as a caretaker government with the primary purpose of calling elections as soon as possible to determine the will of the Guyanese peoples. That is its only job,” Newsday quoted Charles as saying.According to Charles in the news report, it was doubtful whether hosting the investment outreach could be classified as a caretaker responsibility. Moreover, Charles in the news report, also referenced Trinidad Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley’s foreign policy of non-interference.He noted that Khan was out of order for attending the Guyana government-hosted event. Moreover, he questioned the repercussions if the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) won the next elections that must be held following the passage of the NCM.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has always maintained that the Government should be acting in a caretaker capacity only and not be entering into large scale contracts. Jagdeo’s position was vindicated by the CCJ on July 12, when it ruled that the Government should be in a caretaker status.CCJ President Adrian Saunders had outlined that the Cabinet, including the President, should have already been resigned, thus, reaffirming that the APNU/AFC coalition is, in fact, and should be in a caretaker mode leading up to elections.last_img read more

Grocery talks go forward

first_imgThe system gives veteran employees richer benefits than new hires, and it has led to high turnover and training costs, the union said. But the chains say the system is working just fine. Before the extension was announced Monday evening, a pre-recorded message on a union hotline encouraged members to show up to work “whether we have an extension agreement or not.” “Your union is committed to getting a contract that eliminates the unfair two-tier system,” the message continued. julia.scott@dailynews.com (818) 713-3735 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Progress at the negotiating table led three Southern California grocery chains and the unions representing thousands of their employees to agree to a second contract extension in three weeks, a federal mediator announced Monday. Two weeks ago both sides agreed to extend the contract until midnight Monday. The latest extension until April 9 will automatically be renewed daily unless either party gives 72 hours’ notice that it wants to end the extension. “I think it’s a good sign that the stores are continuing to come to the table and trying to reach an agreement with us,” said Mike Shimpock, spokesman for the United Food and Commercial Workers union. The union represents about 70,000 local workers employed by Ralphs, Vons, and Albertson’s. The second extension calls for retroactive benefits if there is no strike or boycott, just as the first extension did. “I think the unions and the grocery companies are committed to working together to come to an agreement,” said Adena Tessler, spokeswoman for the grocery chains. Hundreds of negotiations with the chains and other unions have been resolved without a strike since 2004, she added. John Arnold, spokesman for the U.S. Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, said the level of progress made during the past two weeks resulted in both sides agreeing to the extension. He declined to share details because of a gag order imposed by the Conciliation Service, which brokered the extensions. If either party cancels the automatic extension before a deal is reached, workers could take a strike-authorization vote that, if approved, would allow them to strike at any time. Workers could continue working without a contract or agree to another extension. Negotiations fell apart three years ago, leading to a 139-day strike – one of the longest in the nation’s history. Both parties eventually agreed to a two-tier benefits system for employees, which remains a point of contention. last_img read more

Booty fit to start but he might not

first_img McLeod Bethel-Thompson is UCLA’s official backup for Saturday’s game against No. 10 California. Patrick Cowan is starting, which was no surprise although Coach Karl Dorrell didn’t make that official until Thursday. McLeod Bethel-Thompson, a freshman walk-on, threw four interceptions and fumbled twice in relief of Ben Olson in the Notre Dame game. UCLA is one injury away from using Bethel-Thompson again, and Cowan already suffered through a hamstring injury in fall camp and a knee injury against Washington. Osaar Rasshan, a scholarship quarterback, is listed as the third-string quarterback. The redshirt sophomore moved to receiver this year but never had a catch and didn’t see the field much. With injuries to Olson (knee) and Cowan, Rasshan was moved back to quarterback. Bethel-Thompson and Rasshan shared equal reps this week. “(Mac) has the most experience,” Dorrell said. “He’s played. He’s been entrenched in the offense longer. We’re going to keep bringing Osaar along. “I’m encouraged by what he’s done. I know that he can do something for us if need be. He’s prepared to play, that’s the biggest thing.” Asked if Rasshan would remain at quarterback for the remainder of the season, Dorrell was hesitant to commit. “Yes, well for now,” Dorrell said. “I hate when you say the rest of the season. You just never … Yes, he is there for now, which could be the rest of the season.” All this is moot if Cowan can remain healthy, and Dorrell was pleased with his mobility. Also, Olson is regaining his range of motion, although there’s no set date for his return. UCLA receiver Gavin Ketchum (ankle) shed his boot but was back in it this week because he has a small fracture in his right tibia. Another blow to the receiving corps is that senior Marcus Everett (ankle) will not play. “(Everett) is still hobbling pretty good and having some difficulty pushing off (his foot),” Dorrell said. UCLA tailback Chris Markey (turf toe) is available to play, but whether he’ll get to play is another story. Markey missed the Notre Dame game and didn’t return to practice until Wednesday. He didn’t compete in team drills Thursday, because coaches wanted him to work on footwork. Dorrell was happy with his progress, but Markey will remain behind Kahlil Bell, Chane Moline and Christian Ramirez. UCLA probably will try to keep the ball away from Cal playmaker DeSean Jackson. Aaron Perez has worked on directional punts. “To me, everything I do with punting, no matter where it’s going or how high, it’s about executing with confidence,” Perez said. “Executing confidence, like Coach Dorrell says. Whatever the coaches want me to do – it will be a game-time decision – we’ll be sticking to our guns. “You have to respect a kid like that who’s shown he can return punts in tough situations. But, at the same time, we’re very confident in our coverage teams. If I do my job and hang the ball up, we’ll go out there and cover it.” Bethel-Thompson No. 2 Receivers out Markey available Planned punts Around the nation Baylor: Offensive line coach Eric Schnupp was suspended indefinitely by the university this week after being cited for urinating on the bar at a tavern. His resignation was effective immediately. Nebraska: Interim Athletic Director Tom Osborne responded to reports that Coach Bill Callahan said the former coach was “trying to run things from Washington” while he was a U.S. congressman. “I understand that head football coaches, like everyone else, have emotions,” Osborne said. “I’m not surprised that my long-term influence on the program could sometimes be felt as a controlling force even while I was away, but that was never the intent.” In a statement Thursday, Callahan didn’t deny the reported comments, but said he’s had a great deal of respect for Osborne since he started coaching. “We embrace Coach Osborne and everything he stands for,” Callahan said.

Sarkisian said neither quarterback would be better suited to a relief role off the bench. “I don’t think either has the experience if they came in second,” Sarkisian said. “John David would bring a calming effect. Mark would try to make plays.” All-American tackle Sam Baker will only play if freshman Butch Lewis gets hurt, according to offensive line coach Pat Ruel. … Tailback Stafon Johnson (sprained foot) said he would play. … Cornerbacks Terrell Thomas (hamstring) and Shareece Wright (hamstring) are OK and Thomas will start. … Offensive guard Chilo Rachal (sprained knee) sat out practice but will play. … Linebacker Rey Maualuga (hip pointer) also will also play. “He made it through practice and will play,” Carroll said. … Linebacker Brian Cushing (sprained ankle) might start, but Carroll said he doesn’t want to rush him into playing a lot after missing three games.

Steven Gerrard gets off to winning start at Rangers but it was scrappy

first_img How Arsenal could line up in Arteta’s first official game in charge – Ozil return? predicted Steven Gerrard got his Rangers reign off to a winning start as the Ibrox side battled their way to a 2-0 win Europa League over FK Shkupi.Jamie Murphy put the hosts ahead against the Macedonians midway through the first half, but it was not the kind if display the excited Gers faithful had been expecting from their new boss’ first game in charge. Gerrard will be pleased 2 Murphy opened the scoring Thankfully for Gerrard, Rangers’ breakthrough did arrive after 23 minutes.Daniel Candeias released Tavernier down the inside right channel and the new Gers skipper did well to find Murphy darting in from the left. The winger could have played in Alfredo Morelos but instead went on his own as he ghosted past one defender before firing through a ruck of legs.Yet the failure of Josh Windass, Morelos and Goldson to bury three golden chances before the break ensured a frostier welcome from the manager into the dressing room at half-time than should have been the case.Windass saw a close-range header pushed away by Zendeli at full stretch, while Goldson and Morelos both failed to find the target despite being picked out by Tavernier’s pinpoint deliveries.The right-back put in another wicked cross after 64 minutes as rusty Rangers eventually produced their first chance of the second period, but again Windass fluffed his headed attempt.Gerrard introduced another new signing Ovie Ejaria soon after and the on-loan Liverpool youngster felt he should have had a penalty after tumbling over Kristijan Stojkoski’s flailing leg.Shkupi were doing their best to waste time, but Gers got the break they needed at the death as Amir Bilali’s trip on Murphy was punished by Tavernier from the spot.

With their team not only sluggish but also wasteful in front of goal, the supporters could be forgiven for thinking they were in for a repeat of last year’s humiliating upset at the hands of Luxembourg minnors Progres Niederkorn.But new skipper James Tavernier ensured Gerrard’s side will head to Skopje for next Thursday’s first qualifying round return leg with breathing space after tucking home a stoppage-time penalty.Gerrard handed debuts to five of his summer signings.Allan McGregor was back in goal six years after calling time on his first Ibrox spell, while Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic were paired together at the back.Left-back Jon Flannigan and midfielder Scott Arfield also made their competitive bows.Gerrard will no doubt be pleased with the way his side monopolised the possession stats, but their failure to convert that to the scoresheet will have frustrated the former Champions League winner.It took nine minutes of gentle probing for the hosts to create their first serious opening, but Murphy could not finish after Suat Zendeli punched a Tavernier cross his way.But the sight of Shkupi midfielder Blagoja Ljamchevski clipping the top of McGregor’s crossbar on the quarter-hour mark as he shot from the edge of the area would have brought memories of last year’s early exit flooding back for the anxious Gers support.

Wine on the wild side

first_imgThe Fundi range of wines is aclassy addition to any table.(Image: Fundi Wines)Janine ErasmusSouth Africa’s reputation as a producer of world-class wines is well deserved. Now the local wine tourism industry is about to get a boost with Project Laduma, which aims to train 2010 new wine stewards before the 2010 Fifa World Cup, while the project’s recently-launched Fundi wine range will help to generate the funds needed for training.Laduma means “it thunders” in isiZulu and is a popular shout at football matches when a goal is scored. The wine’s name is derived from the isiZulu word umfundi, or learner. In colloquial South African English the word refers, appropriately, to an expert.Laduma is the brainchild of Wines of South Africa (Wosa). “We identified a need in the industry for better service,” says Andre Morgenthal, Wosa communications manager. “In the wine tourism industry service excellence is one of the keys to success, and this is true of similar regions all around the world. We need well-trained front-of-house staff in our restaurants and wineries.”As a tourism destination South Africa ranks among the world’s best. The wine regions in the Western and Northern Cape provinces, and KwaZulu-Natal, which is also classified as a Wine of Origin geographical region, are among the most scenic to be found anywhere, and this adds immensely to the value of the local wine tourism industry.Maintaining the paceBut in order to remain competitive, South Africa’s wine tourism industry must maintain pace with the rest of the world, and this is where Project Laduma will play an important role. Not only will it give previously disadvantaged people the skills to forge a career in the hospitality and wine tourism industries, but it will also ensure that visitors to the country get top-class service by knowledgeable wine stewards.All training is undertaken by well known hospitality training company Let’s Sell Lobster. The company uses innovative methods that build confidence and personality, resulting in trained staff that fully understand their particular roles in the industry and possess the skills and knowledge to deliver a five-star service. The company has worked with a number of leading wine estates including Paul Cluver, La Motte and L’Ormarins.The course is supported by the Federated Hospitality Association of South Africa and accredited with the Sector Education and Training Authority, which focuses on skills development. Let’s Sell Lobster issues certificates on completion of the course, and also assists with placements afterwards. Wosa hopes that some graduates will go on to become fully fledged sommeliers.A sunflower for hopeAs a wholly industry-driven initiative Project Laduma is of necessity also funded from within, and to raise the R4.5-million (US$420 000) necessary to train 2010 wine stewards Wosa has established Fundi, a classy new red wine brand which is available to the trade, in licensed and retail outlets in South Africa and overseas, and online at the Fundi website or Cybercellar. About 20% of the 17 500 six-bottle cases on offer is destined for overseas shelves, while the remainder will be sold in South Africa.All proceeds will go towards Project Laduma’s training programme, because every aspect of Fundi’s production has been completely sponsored, from supply of bottles and corks to label design and printing, legal work, website development and publicity.One of the distinguishing characteristics of the brand is its logo, the stylised sunflower, which signifies hope and the enduring African sun. The well-known South African craft of beading also features on the bottle in the form of a beaded decoration that can be used as a wine glass marker. There are six different designs to collect.All local wineries were invited to submit samples for selection to the brand, and the final six were selected in a blind tasting by members of the Cape Winemakers’ Guild. The six wineries are Anwilka, Hartenberg, False Bay Vineyards, Waterkloof, The Company of Wine People and Stellekaya.The wild side of wineThe wine steward course is an advanced one that extends over five days and equips trainees with essential knowledge of wine varieties, wine regions, food and wine pairing, and wine service skills. While some trainees are drawn from the industry, many are complete oenological novices and therefore a fresh approach was needed to make it easy for them to understand wine.Dispensing with technical jargon such as terroir, acidity and fining, Let’s Sell Lobster simply likens popular cultivars to local species of wildlife, making it much easier for trainees, many of whom are previously unemployed or if employed in the industry, in possession of very little wine knowledge, to identify with the characteristics of the wine – and to explain it in those zoological terms to enchanted wine-lovers. Let’s Sell Lobster calls this the “Bush Logic” technique.Red wines are referred to by animal names and white wines are represented by birds. For instance, the elegant Cap Classique is a giraffe, while Cabernet Sauvignon, the dark-coloured wine with the heaviest structure, is an elephant. A bold Shiraz is a rhino, and a Chardonnay is a fish eagle, known for resting in trees like the wine itself, which rests in an oak barrel during the aging process.Already over 120 trainees have graduated and, says Morgenthal, there have been some heart-warming tales to tell. “One of our wineries had a lady who used to sweep the floors – she showed interest in learning more about wines, so they sent her on the course and now she is serving their patrons.“Another lady worked in the actual vineyard and one day some visitors arrived at the winery to find that there was nobody available to help them with tasting. She stepped in and of course the owners noticed, so later they asked her if she would be interested in the course. She was, and now she is one of their front-of-house staff.”Do you have queries or comments about this article?
