“National Legislature Holds Liberia’s Future”

first_imgHead of the National Traditional Council, Chief   Zanzan Karwor  has said that the country’s future would be bright only if the National Legislature would accept  all the recommendations that will be put forward by delegates attending the National Constitution Conference, in Gbarnga, Bong County.Chief Karwor told the conference that “You have spoken and it rests with our lawmakers to accept what you have said.”Speaking at the opening of the four day National Conference currently taking place at the Gbarnga Administrative building, in Bong County, Chief Karwor described the conference as a “bird in the hands of the Legislature.”  In his statement which was echoed by Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh, he said, “Liberia is like a bird in their hands, and its survivability is left with how they would protect it.“If they chose to squeeze it to death, it is left with them, but if they want it to live, they would release it to fly from their hands.”Surprisingly, when  it was time for  Speaker Alex Tyler to speak, he said, ”You have succinctly delineated recurring views from the field and proposals that find consensus among citizens across the length and breadth of the land, including the 73 electoral districts throughout the 15 counties present.”He added: “Without getting into the core substance of the discussion, which we shall later, I do like to sound out this caveat: we cannot and will not get all we are asking for in every instance. We must learn to give and take.”Providing clarity on his statement, the Bomi County lawyer said, “For instance take my own county, Bomi, which happens to be first on the list. The very first (proposal) suggests that a presidential candidate should hold a Master’s degree.“This proposal poses a serious problem to a citizen’s fundamental right to vote or to be voted for. This is committing an otherwise heinous crime for which she/he is prohibited from standing,” he stated.“By all conventions and protocols advanced by the United Nations (UN) enshrined in international law, the right of a mature citizen to canvass and be elected to an office within his own state is sacrosanct and inviolate and any attempt to rescind or restrict that right would be  ultra-virus,” he maintained.According to him, it would be beyond the scope or in excess of legal power or authority. “Let us think about that one,” Speaker Tyler appealed. Speaker Tyler queried, “Do you honestly want an elected Chief Justice for four years, who would be subject to the political currents, social pressures and economic machinations of the day?”  Recommendations from the conference will be sent to the National Legislature for concurrence by both Houses, which would automatically make it fit for a referendum to be conducted by the National Elections Commission (NEC).Among the recommendations are reduction in the terms of office of the president and members of the national legislature. The Traditional head is pushing for the lawmakers not to reject any of the recommendations.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Constable chopped by irate vendor

first_imgA Constable attached to the City Constabulary was admitted to the Georgetown Public Hospital, nursing a wound to his head after he was chopped by an irate vendor along Water Street, Georgetown.Injured is 38-year-old Satish Boodhoo.Based on reports received, the vendor reportedly stepped on Boodhoo’s feet and the Constable demanded an apology, but the vendor became abusive.The vendor continued to verbally abuse the Constable, who cautioned that if he continued, he could be arrested and charged. By this time, other vendors flocked the Constable and a heated argument ensued as they attempted to defend their colleague.However, the argument continued and as Boodhoo attempted to arrest the vendor, he whipped out a sharp object and dealt him one blow to the head. The Constable fell unconscious to the roadway.His colleagues, also on foot patrol, rushed to his assistance and arrived just in time as the irate vendor was attempting to disarm him. Upon their arrival, the suspect fled the scene. The injured Constable was picked up and taken to the Hospital where he was admitted.Guyana Times understands that the now injured Constable and three of his colleagues were on patrol in the area. The other Constables were reportedly a short distance away when Boodhoo was attacked and injured, and upon hearing the commotion, they turned around and responded before the matter could have gotten worse. The incident was reported to the Police and an investigation has been launched.last_img read more

Lancaster Rite Aid workers take heat charge to Capitol

first_imgJody Cook, a spokeswoman for Rite Aid Corp., said a report from the Coroner’s Office and the company’s own investigation determined that the employee’s death was not heat-related, nor caused by the company’s actions, but she declined to elaborate on the cause of death. “Neither heat nor Rite Aid caused this death,” Cook said. “We do what we can to provide a comfortable work environment for all of our associates.” Orlando acknowledged that the employee had “underlying health conditions” but said he thinks the heat exacerbated those problems. Assembly Bill1045, by Assemblywoman Laura Richardson, D-Long Beach, asks the state Occupational Safety and Health Board to draft regulations on indoor heat in the workplace. It would include new requirements for the provision of water and break periods, and training to recognize and treat heat illness. The Assembly Labor and Employment Committee voted 5-1 to approve the bill, but it is expected to go through further hearings before being submitted for a final vote by the Legislature. SACRAMENTO – Workers at a Rite Aid warehouse in Lancaster complained to state lawmakers Wednesday that the company has failed to provide air conditioning inside the desert facility, allowing temperatures to exceed 100 degrees and causing heat exhaustion and one employee fatality. The workers testified at a hearing on a bill that would create California’s first regulations to prevent indoor heat illness in the workplace. They said the company has ignored complaints of heat-related illness and disciplined workers who fall behind on their quotas. During last summer’s heat wave, they said, one worker collapsed while working and later died. “Many of us suffered from the heat,” said Mark Orlando, who worked at the center from December2004 to January. “We got headaches, dizzy spells and nausea, and also threw up. We couldn’t slow down or go home because we were afraid of getting disciplined.” Last year, the state Department of Occupational Safety and Health received 37 reports of serious heat-related accidents, including 14 fatalities, although a breakdown of indoor and outdoor incidents was not available. After last year’s summer heat wave and related worker illnesses and deaths, the state wrote new regulations to provide relief to outdoor workers, such as requiring employers to provide water and access to shade. But the regulations did not address employees who work indoors. Employer groups such as the California Chamber of Commerce and the California Manufacturers & Technology Association oppose the bill, saying they are working with Cal-OSHA to look at heat-related issues. harrison.sheppard@dailynews.com (916) 446-6723160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Both players have been outstanding for us and they leave with our very best wishes for their futures.“The aim now is to retain as many of the remaining squad as possible and look to add some new faces this summer as we bid to compete at the top end of the Championship and bounce straight back into the top flight.” 1 Paul McShane last_img read more

Simulator predicts how the World Cup will end, and it’s not good news for England

first_img 1 Belgium will win the World Cup this summer, after defeating England in the Final on July 15.That’s according to a simulator from financial services company Goldman Sachs, who have run their simulator since the start of the World Cup on June 14. After predicting Belgium would go all the way in Russia, an adjustment was made, and concluded the Three Lions would succumb to defeat to their European counterparts in the Moscow showpiece.The strategy takes into account 200,000 statistical models, specified individual data on players and team performance and conducted one million simulations before making its judgement.Jan Hatzius, chief economist at Goldman Sachs, said: “With Brazil now out of the world cup, Belgium is at the top of our probability table with a 32.6% chance of lifting the trophy, closely followed by France (29.8%).“Similarly, our model’s modal projection is for Belgium to defeat France and England en route to winning the tournament.”The first simulation predicted Germany would face the Selecao in the Final, but Joachim Low’s side crashed out at the group stage.England have a 20.2% chance of winning the whole tournament, but are expected to defeat Croatia to get there.center_img England are expected to experience yet more heartache at a major tournament last_img read more
