Govt misleads: Basil Blackman still honorary advisor

first_imgBasil Blackman has confirmed he still holds the position of an honorary advisor under the Ministry of the Presidency (MoTP) even though the Government has refuted claims of that nature.Blackman told Guyana Times on Saturday that he has been an advisor since his appointment in May 2016.As honorary advisor, Blackman was not being paid but he was willing to contribute to improved governance.A business card showing Basil Blackman is an official of the MoTPHowever, the MOTP on April 25, in a strong missive, denied that Blackman was an official of that body as was outlined in an online news article.“The Ministry of the Presidency wishes to inform all and sundry that Mr Basil Blackman AA, the individual mentioned in the sensational report, is not an adviser to His Excellency David Granger, President of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana, neither is he an official of the Ministry of the Presidency,” the statement outlined.The MOTP further demanded that the online news entity retract its article, claiming that assertion that Blackman was an official is erroneous.The online article reported that the man fingered in the plot to assassinate President David Granger had attended a party hosted by Blackman.However, Blackman has since highlighted that he does not know all of the attendees at the event.Regarding the investigation into the assassination plot, Police have managed to obtain the phone records of persons involved.The probe recently took an unexpected turn when a witness revealed that the complainant (the man who claimed he was hired to assassinate the President) had offered him money to give a statement to the Police claiming that he was present when the two businessmen contacted him (complainant) to assassinate the President.According to sources, the complainant had only made the monetary offer after he informed the Police of the assassination plot.Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum has assured that all efforts are being made to expedite the investigation.If the Police concludes that the assassination plot claims were mischievous, guilty parties can be charged for providing false information to the Police.However, if the allegation is true, the guilty parties could be charged for treason.last_img read more

New Jersey now requires flu shots for preschoolers

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champThe new requirements “will have a direct impact on reducing illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths in one of New Jersey’s most vulnerable populations – our children,” Jacobs said. A health advisory board backed the new requirements Monday on a 5-2 vote, with one abstention, after parents said they worried about the safety of giving dozens of vaccine doses to very young children. New Jersey also will require preschoolers to get a pneumococcal vaccine. Sixth-graders will have to get vaccines against meningitis, already required in New Jersey for college dormitory residents, and a booster shot against whooping cough, which in recent years has seen a resurgence blamed on waning potency of shots given to infants and preschoolers. The four additional vaccines are recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Academy of Pediatrics and other medical groups. TRENTON, N.J. – New Jersey on Friday became the first state to require flu shots for preschoolers, saying their developing immune systems and likelihood of spreading germs make them as vulnerable to complications as the elderly. State Health Commissioner Dr. Fred M. Jacobs approved the requirement and those for three other vaccines over the objections of some parent groups. Starting in September, all children attending preschool or licensed day-care centers will have to get an annual flu shot, Jacobs said. That makes New Jersey the first state to require flu shots for preschoolers or older students, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Preschoolers are being targeted because their developing immune systems make them as susceptible to flu complications as senior citizens are, state health officials say, and they are more likely than older kids to spread the virus. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgAn Irish soldier has blamed a malaria drug for leading to a change in his personality before he was caught with explosives at a Co Donegal flat.Mark Cassidy leaving court today. Pic copyright of Northwest News pix.Mark Cassidy appeared before Letterkenny Circuit Court today charged with possessing explosive substances. The court heard that on February 16th, 2014, Gardai had received confidential information to say there was explosive substances at a flat above a petrol station in Burnfoot.Surveillance was carried out and on February 17 and Gardai entered the premises.Inside the premises in a press in a common area Gardai found a black bag containing a viable pipe bomb.The area was sealed off and Army Bomb Disposal Experts were rushed to the scene.A further search discovered a large quantity of assorted shotgun cartridges in the attic of a flat occupied by Cassidy, 29.Cassidy, with an address at Grianan Vale, Ballyderowen, Burnfoot, was interviewed on six occasions by Garda and admitting having the pipebomb and the shotgun cartridges in his possession.Detective Sgt Mick Carroll said they still had no information as to what the explosive devices were going to be used for.A bag containing overalls and balaclavas was also found in the flat but there was no indication as to what they were being used for.Barrister for Cassidy, Peter Nolan, said his client had ben an exemplary soldier who had served overseas in Chad and was based at Finner Camp in Donegal when this incident happened.Mr Nolan suggested there was a connection between his client taking the drug Lariam for Malaria while serving overseas and his change in personality.He referred to the US army banning the drug as a result of concerns over its affect on soldiers.He added there was simply no reason why a man with no record of being involved in subversive activity would suddenly do so.Mr Nolan also said that the suicide of his brother in Derry in 2009 and the death of his mother in 2009 had had a profound affect on him.It was also given in evidence in court that Cassidy, who is originally from the Foyle Road in Derry, was arrested by the PSNI but never charged with any offence.Detective Carroll also said that Cassidy had no previous convictions for any offence on ether side of the border.Judge Matthew Deery this was a very serious incident especially when the explosives were found in an apartment above a busy supermarket and petrol station.“The reasons as to why they were stored are not explained but it seems to me that while he has no previous convictions, it is a serious matter,” he said.He sentenced Cassidy to three years on each charge and ordered them to run concurrently.He backdated the sentence to January 17th when Cassidy was first put placed in custody at Castlerea Prison.SOLDIER CAUGHT WITH PIPE-BOMB BLAMES MALARIA DRUG ON CHANGING HIS PERSONALITY was last modified: July 17th, 2014 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:BurnfootdonegalGardaimalariaMARK CASSIDYpipebombsoldierlast_img read more

FARMER FORCED TO PUT DOWN CALVES IS FOUND NOT GUILTY OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS

first_imgA Raphoe farmer who was forced to put down two calves after his herd appeared to be malnourished has been found not guilty of cruelty to animals.Letterkenny Court.Ivor Russell appeared at Letterkenny District Court charged with the incident at Manorcunningham on October 19th, 2012. Gardai received an anonymous tip-off that cows at Mr Russell’s farm had not been fed and were in a poor state.Garda Denise Cassidy said when they arrived they witnessed a number of cattle who looked unwell and unfed.Three of the 15 calves in the field could not get up and twi of them looked particularly bad.Another 28 calves in the back of the field also appeared to be malnourished, said Garda Cassidy.She said there was no sign of any fee and the field look bare.She contacted the Donegal Animal Hospital and two vets, Gerard Roarty and Aimee Martin, arrived a short time later.Mr Roarty said it was dark when he arrived and he had to use a flashlight to examine the herd.He was forced to utinise two of the calves.Garda Cassidy got the tag numbers of the calves, contacted the Department of Agriculture and found the owner was Ivor Russell of Braehead, Raphoe.When interviewed by Gardai, Mr Russell said he had fed the animals two hours before Gardai arrived and that the calves were suffering from pneumonia.He told Gardai that he had injected some of the calves for pneumonia and said he thought it was unfair that Gardai didn’t look at the calves in daylight.He also added that he agreed there was not a lot of grass in the field but the animals were fed hay and they also got meal twice a day.When cross-examined Dr Roarty said he could not say without a post mortem how the animals died.He also added that pneumonia was a common form of death amongst bull calves.Solicitor Donagh Cleary said he was looking for a direction in the case because it had not been proven that the calves died from malnourishment.Judge Paul Kelly agreed and said that in a criminal case, the case had to be proven beyond all reasonable doubt.He added that there was no evidence before the court that malnutrition was the cause of death of the calves.He dismissed the charge against Mr Russell.FARMER FORCED TO PUT DOWN CALVES IS FOUND NOT GUILTY OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS was last modified: March 18th, 2015 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:calvescrueltydonegalIvor RussellRaphoelast_img read more

‘FEAR OF LETTING MY FAMILY DOWN DROVE ME ON’ SAYS MARVELOUS MARK

first_imgMark drapes himself in the tricolour after his amazing bronze meal win in Zurich.Marvelous Mark English has revealed the fear of letting his family down drove him on to win a superb bronze medal at the European Championships.The 21 year old Letterkenny man ran the race of his life to finish in a time of 1.45.03 in what has been his biggest test to date.Mark, a medical student at UCD, revealed “All my family were here and I have perhaps not done as well in other races when they were there. “I didn’t want that to happened again and I’m just so pleased I could do them proud today.”English said he just decided to relax on the way to the track in Zurich in Switzerland and revealed he had a very calm mood chatting to the taxi-driver who took him to the stadium.He switched tactics and decided to sit back for the first 600 metres and then to give it his all in the last two hundred metres.“I am absolutely delighted, I felt really relaxed that’s why it went so well I think. I really enjoyed that, the last 100m was unbelievable. I ‘am happy with bronze. I knew Bosse was beatable. It’s fantastic, it’s not just for me, it’s for everyone who supported me. My whole family are here.” Pre-race favourite Bosse of France set a fast early pace going through the bell in 50.97 seconds. English was running a smart race sitting in sixth place but never too far off the leaders. Bosse continued to push the pace hitting the 600m mark in 87.24 seconds with English starting to motor in fifth place.The last 100m was special for the Irishman as he powered down the finishing straight to win the bronze medal in a season’s best time of 1.45.03. Polish athletes Adam Kszczot and Artur Kuciapski won the gold and silver respectively.English said “I had two goals coming into this season, to win a medal here and break the Irish record. I’ll look for one and two more races now to try and do that. “English becomes Ireland seventh ever medalist at these championships joining Irish greats such as Sonia O’Sullivan and Eamonn Coghlan.He also becomes only the second Irish athlete along with Derval O’Rourke to win a medal at these championships in the last ten years, a remarkable achievement. High Performance director Kevin Ankrom said “We have experienced the high and lows of sport today. I am delighted for Mark, as a group supporting him that’s what makes it all the more sweeter. We’re all very proud of Mark. All his hard work is paying off, I am delighted that these young athletes are starting to bridge the gap from the junior ranks to the seniors, we will continue to develop that.”‘FEAR OF LETTING MY FAMILY DOWN DROVE ME ON’ SAYS MARVELOUS MARK was last modified: August 16th, 2014 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:800 metresdonegalmark englishSwitzerlandZurichlast_img read more
