Mahdia Primary School’s roof gone with the wind

first_imgRegion 8 freak stormA freak storm ripped through parts of Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni) on Friday afternoon, causing damages to the Mahdia Primary School’s roof, which is expected to be fixed by Monday according to Director General of the Civil Defence Commission (CDC), Lieutenant Colonel Kester Craig.The remains of the pregnant woman’s home (CDC image)The roofless Mahdia Primary School (CDC image)In an interview with this publication on Saturday, Craig explained that the heavy winds impacted several homes at about 16:00h. The unexpected storm, which lasted for about 15 minutes, led several residents into a state of fear and panic. In fact, Guyana Times was told that in one instance, the heavy winds even led to a home collapsing with a pregnant woman and her toddler still inside.The CDC Director said that he was happy to report that the woman, although still hospitalized, is in a stable condition as well as her unborn child. Her toddler only received minor injuries.In the meantime, he noted that a thorough assessment of the damages is still ongoing, but so far six houses have received damages in addition to the primary school’s roof which blew off.According to Craig, the Communities Ministry has committed to rehabilitating the affected homes once the assessment is completed. Even though some of the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) poles were affected by the storm, electricity, he said, has also been restored to the affected areas.A similar event unfolded only a few days ago in Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice). Guyana Times reported that on August 24, a few communities across the region were sent into distress after a freak storm caused damages to numerous houses in the early morning hours, affecting over 100 families.The regional administration disclosed that a number of residents from Moblissa to Blueberry Hill, Linden, and other surrounding areas were affected by the heavy rainfall and forceful winds which shredded through roofs and walls. In social media narratives, accompanied by photos, residents voiced their plights as water accumulated several inches from the heavy rainfall.This was described as the largest storm seen in recent times and the losses brought by the destruction is estimated to be in the millions.last_img read more

Project shop class coming into northern B.C. high schools

first_imgThe funding goes to a program partnership between the north region, B.C. Construction Association and the Construction Foundation of B.C. to provide training tools and equipment required by secondary schools.It’s designed to replace and enhance current shop class equipment, coming at a time when this region continues to prepare for a major industrial development push.That in turn will create the need for more skilled trade workers, and local area high school graduates remain an important labor source for small and medium sized construction companies.- Advertisement -There is a concern however that without more shop class emphasis, many of those companies will have trouble recruiting the people they need to land new contracts.Accordingly, the trust – an independent regional economic development corporation, is getting behind Project Shop Class, with a current budget for the northern focus of $532,000.However, the high schools involved have requested more than one million, and are therefore also moving forward with fundraising activities.Advertisementlast_img read more

McHUGH: ‘A5 UPGRADE GOOD NEWS FOR DONEGAL’

first_imgFine Gael TD for Donegal North East, Joe McHugh, has today welcomed the announcement that £330m will be spent over the next four years on upgrading sections of the A5 from Newbuildings to Strabane, and from Omagh to Ballygawley.The Irish Government is contributing £50 million to this project.“Today’s announcement shows how far North-South relations have come over the last few years. Not only will the upgrade of the A5 greatly enhance access to Donegal, this announcement also demonstrates the commitment of the Northern Ireland Executive to strengthening the North-South relationship. “Ultimately the North-South political process is about calmness, consensus and building trust. For the Northern Ireland Executive, which will channel the majority of the funding for this project over the next four years, this is a massive leap of faith.“It is also an indication of the excellent work that An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD has personally done to secure this project, at a time of very scarce resources. He has consistently demonstrated his support for this project and he was in regular contact with the leaders of the Northern Ireland Executive on this matter.“The cross-border body Irish Central Border Area Network (ICBAN) must also take credit for this outcome. I facilitated a meeting between ICBAN and the Minister for Transport, Leo Varadkar, in Dublin last December to discuss this project, and ICBAN has been very proactive in lobbying at Stormont and in Dublin for progress on the road. Today’s announcement proves ICBAN’s value as a political mechanism for border communities.“The Irish Government’s ambition is to restore the economic independence that was conceded in 2010 to the European Central Bank and the IMF. Restoration of our economic sovereignty will put the Irish Government in a strong position to deliver the final stretches of this road – from Omagh to Strabane, and from Lifford to Letterkenny. I will continue to work with colleagues in Government and with political colleagues in Northern Ireland, to ensure that progress is made.” McHUGH: ‘A5 UPGRADE GOOD NEWS FOR DONEGAL’ was last modified: February 14th, 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:joe mchugh tdlast_img read more

COPE ENSURES AGREEMENT OF REFORM ON COMMON FISHERIES POLICY

first_imgPat the Cope Gallagher, a negotiator for the European Parliament on the Reform of the Common Fisheries Policy, has confirmed the European Parliament has reached a political agreement with the Irish Presidency on the Reform of the Common Fisheries Policy.The agreement was brokered at 3.30am this morning in the European Parliament in Brussels.Mr. Gallagher stated this morning “I can confirm that the negotiations have ended with a political agreement between the European Parliament and the Presidency on the Reform of the Common Fisheries Policy.” Mr. Gallagher said “I am disappointed by the failure of the Presidency to accept the proposal of the European Parliament to enshrine the Hague Preferences into the Reform.“Despite the fact of having the full support of my colleagues for the Hague Preferences, I did not want to be responsible for the breakdown of the negotiations, which could have delayed the Reform beyond the Irish Presidency. As such, I proposed a strengthened recital in a last ditch effort.“I am pleased that my suggestion was accepted, subject to a final agreement in Coreper in respect of the Hague Preferences. This will ensure that for the next ten years EU Fish Ministers must take full account of the Hague Preferences when allocating annual quotas.”Pat the Cope further stated he fully accepted the remainder of the Reform as it has incorporated many of the amendments tabled by him during our deliberations in the European Parliament. He added these significant changes include a strong request urging Member States to endeavour to provide additional quotas to vessels that fish in an environmentally sustainable manner, such as small scale vessels, recognition that existing biological sensitive areas should be continued, which includes the Irish Box and the establishment of greater regionalisation and bottom up decision making especially for technical and conservation measures.Pat the Cope concluded by stating “the attention will quickly turn to the implementation of the reform especially concerning the discard ban. This new policy will last for the next ten years and it must be implemented in a way that protects and develops the seafood industry in Ireland which employs over 12,000 people, in many coastal and small island communities throughout Ireland.“The introduction of the discard ban will only work in practice if the principles of avoidance and minimisation through more selective gear and incentives to encourage stakeholder compliance are adhered to.” COPE ENSURES AGREEMENT OF REFORM ON COMMON FISHERIES POLICY was last modified: May 30th, 2013 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:Common Fisheries PolicyPat The Cope Gallagherlast_img read more
