It means the Gunners are in the knock-out stages of the Champions League for the 16th year in a row.Now the bottom club in the Barclays Premier League entertains Arsenal, second in the table after returning to winning ways against Sunderland. The Gunners had gone three games without a win but responded by claiming their ninth victory of the season, the joint most wins along with Leicester City and Manchester City.By contrast, Aston Villa have just one win – the fewest in the Premier League. But in new manager Remi Garde they have a man familiar to Arsenal fans. The Frenchman spent three years at Arsenal, from 1996 to 1999, though in that time he made only 31 first-team appearances.Arsenal have scored 27 goals so far; only Everton (28), Manchester City (30) and Leicester City (32) have more. But they have also hit the woodwork 12 times, more than any other team in the Premier League. Villa, though, have just 13 goals, the joint lowest with Stoke City.last_img read more

Magistrate remands accused thief

first_imgMultiple offender Romel Bollers of Agricola, Greater Georgetown was on Wednesday remanded to prison on a simple larceny charge by Georgetown Magistrate Leron Daly, before whom he appeared to answer an allegation that he snatched Tanya Drakes’s gold chain and pendant on August 22, 2018 at Agricola, Greater Georgetown.Bollers denied the allegation, but according to the prosecutor, the virtual complainant was standing on the Agricola Public Road when Bollers approached her, snatched the chain and made good his escape.Bollers’ having already served three years’ jail for robbery-under-arms, the prosecution’s submissions were upheld and he was remanded to prison until October 10.The run-ins that Bollers had with Police date back to September 11, 2012, when Agricola youth Shaquille Grant was shot and killed by Police ranks. At that time, Bollers had claimed that neither he nor any of his friends had been armed when Police opened fire on them.During Policeman Terrence Wallace’s trial in 2015, Bollers, who was by then incarcerated, testified and rejected suggestions that he had pulled out a gun and shot at the Policemen.The Police ranks had said that that act was what had propelled them to return fire, leaving Bollers’ friend Shaquille Grant dead. Policeman Wallace was later freed of the charge.Bollers was behind bars during that time, having been sentenced by Magistrate Daly, who was then serving at the Providence Court, to three years’ jail for armed robbery.He had been placed on $100,000 bail by ex-Magistrate Leslie Sobers prior to being convicted. However, based on the prosecution’s evidence, the court accepted that on December 3, 2012, Bollers robbed Amrita Bacchus of two cellular phones valued $185,000 while being armed with an ice pick.After paying his debt to society, Bollers had another encounter with the law in January 2017, when he was alleged to have robbed two Policemen. However, when he appeared before city Magistrate Annette Singh, he outright denied the robbery charges.Guyana Times reported that the first charge alleged that the defendant, on December 9, 2016, at East La Penitence Market, robbed Ian George of one car key and alarm valued $25,000.The second charge alleged that Bollers robbed Elvis Parkinson of one cellphone valued $165,000, one wallet valued $5000, and $20,000 in cash at the same location. On that occasion, however, he was allegedly armed with a gun.He had also been charged for robbing Gray Jordon of a cellphone valued $110,000, one wallet valued $5000, and $11,000 in cash while allegedly armed with a gun.Bollers has been remanded to prison, and will be arraigned in court again on January 10, 2019.last_img read more

48 persons receive first aid training

first_imgAfter completing a successful first session of its “Delivering Quality Service” training in April, the Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA) had continued with the beneficial programme as it recently concluded two training workshops in Moraikobai, Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) and Karasabai, Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni).Residents of Karasabai, Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni), during the practical session of the First Aid and CPR TrainingA total of 48 residents coming from both regions were trained in the areas of delivering quality service, first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). These pieces of training lasted from May 2 to 5, and May 13 to 15, 2019, in the respective regions.Designed by the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) and conducted by the GTA, the programme is geared towards educating participants on the importance of tourism in Guyana and the neighbouring regions, understanding and respecting cultural differences, and the 10 principles and the importance of delivering quality service to travellers, as well as developing community-led and owned tourism by preparing villages like Moraikobai and Karasabai to independently host travellers.GTA’s Training Officer, Deborah Clementson and Manager of Training, Licensing and Operations Davina Layne both conducted three days of training each in the communities. The First Aid and CPR Training resulted in 12 persons from Moraikobai trained in basic first aid, including the A-Z of first aid treatment and emergency procedures such as CPR. An additional 12 persons from Karasabai were trained in basic first aid. The participants were further given instructions in disaster preparedness. The two-day session in both communities was conducted by Deon Worrell of St John Association of Guyana who made use of practical, hands-on scenarios involving coaching participants to maximise their individual skills and teaching them how to work as a team. Through this, participants will be able to implement a coordinated response in emergency scenarios which will ultimately build confidence to respond to incidents where time is of the essence, significantly reducing the potential for fatalities.Most notably, with assistance from the Projects Department within the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples Affairs (MOIPA), Moraikobai has already embarked on the construction of a lodge. Once completed, nature enthusiasts, birders and those interested in sport fishing will be welcomed to enjoy the beauty of Moraikobai. Although a project deadline has not been finalised, the Moraikobai Tourism Committee is confident that the lodge will be completed by the end of the year.The GTA is committed to providing guidance to the Moraikobai Tourism Committee to help them create a successful tourism enterprise through the creation of day tours and overnight packages and marketing their tourism product, the agency also has a sport fishing training guide scheduled for May 27 – 30 in the village of Warapoka in Region One (Barima-Waini). Warapoka is also one of the four highlighted communities for community-led and owned tourism development in 2019-2025 through the partnership between the GTA and MOIPA.last_img read more

first_imgTHE HSE is planning to centralise the delivery of the NowDoc nightshift to Letterkenny, two TDs claimed today.Donegal Sinn Féin TDs, Pádraig Mac Lochlainn and Pearse Doherty say they have made it clear that any proposals to lessen the NowDoc service in rural Donegal will be strongly resisted by both them and other politicians in the county.The Deputies say they understand that Donegal’s GPs are currently working up proposals to deliver what they refer to as the “red eye shift” or the 12pm to 8am shift centrally from Letterkenny. In a joint statement today they said: “At the recent meeting between HSE managers in Donegal and the local Oireachtas and HSE forum members, we made it clear that any such proposals will be strongly resisted. All the politicians present went on to express similar sentiments.“The reality is that the people of rural Donegal have compromised already by accepting NowDoc and any suggestion that these services would be further centralised in Letterkenny from 12pm to 8am is just not on.”The statement went on: “The HSE managers have agreed to bring this matter back before the local Oireachtas and HSE forum members before making any decision. However they are fully aware of our outright opposition to this proposal and we are not going to be convinced that the people of rural Donegal can have their out of hours emergency GP service adequately delivered from Letterkenny only.“What is even more remarkable is that HSE management are asking local GPs not to refer patients to Letterkenny Accident and Emergency Department unless absolutely necessary in order to alleviate overcrowding and pressure on the hospital at a time of cutbacks. How centralising the NowDoc service to Letterkenny from 12pm to 8am is going to assist that plan is beyond us”. “The NowDoc service cannot be allowed to be eroded and the HSE and the GPs in Donegal will have to find a solution to their differences over financing the out of hours services that does not impact on patients services and the rights of our rural people.”LEAVE YOUR COMMENT BELOW© 2012, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on Follow us on‘HSE PLANNING TO CENTRALISE NOWDOC SERVICE TO LETTERKENNY’ was last modified: March 3rd, 2012 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:HSEletterkennyNowDocPadraig MacLochlainn TDPearse Doherty TDlast_img read more
