first_imgSancho: TTFA chief has questions to answer PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Former Sports Minister Brent Sancho says the dramatic resignation of men’s head coach Tom Saintfiet has left Football Association president, David John-Williams, with plenty explaining to do. The 43-year-old Belgian quit the post on Tuesday after a mere five weeks in charge, citing a lack of support from the FA and also claiming that John-Williams had “double-guessed” his appointment from the very first day. “I think that is where he has some very strong questioning to face. I think the statements made by Mr Saintfiet contains some very serious allegations as it relates to staff selection and player selection,” Sancho contended. Outlaws keeping tabs on Russell LONDON (CMC): Nottinghamshire are weighing up another move for West Indies Twenty20 star Andre Russell, as they seek to strengthen for next summer’s T20 Blast. The 29-year-old impressed in three outings for the Outlaws last season and new head coach Peter Moores said the English County side was monitoring his availability with the hope of once again securing his services. “I would think Andre Russell is at the top of most people’s lists to sign. He’s very much someone who bowls with pace and he hits the ball as cleanly as anyone in the game,” said the former England head coach. Narine fails to stop record run chase MELBOURNE, Australia (CMC): A disruptive spell from West Indies Twenty20 star spinner Sunil Narine for Melbourne Renegades was upstaged by a maiden Twenty20 hundred from Ben McDermott that set up a thrilling, record two-wicket victory for the Hobart Hurricanes in a high-scoring Big Bash League match yesterday. Narine was the most successful bowler for the Renegades, grabbing three for 27 from four overs, but the 22-year-old McDermott smashed eight fours and nine sixes in 114 from 52 balls to put the Hurricanes firmly on course for a target of 223 at the Docklands Stadium and the highest successful run chase in the tournament’s history. Before Narine trapped him leg before wicket in the 16th over, McDermott shared 151 for the third wicket with Australia international George Bailey. Earlier, Australia international Aaron Finch hit the top score of 63 from 40 balls and Netherlands international Tom Cooper supported with an unbeaten 53 from 24 balls, as the Renegades posted 222 for four from their allocation of 20 overs.last_img read more

Momoh Launches Diabetes Awareness

first_imgMr. James Momoh, an American-based Liberian, Tuesday, May 27, launched a program to create all the necessary awareness about the deadly diabetes sickness.Mr. Momoh recently returned to Liberia after completed his studies including the one on diabetes in the U.S.  The awareness, which was launched at the newly established diabetes ‘Pervocate Center’ on Front Street in Monrovia, according to Mr. Momoh, is to allow people suspected of living with the health condition to do their test.Diabetes, he said, is not about testing, but education through awareness, “this is why the testing center on Front Street Center was set up to also serve as a resource center.”To add up to his effort of relieving Liberians from the disease, Mr. Momoh said an American-based healthcare company has introduced a new pharmaceutical product to detect symptoms of diabetes in human body.The product, “Perfect 3”, has also been introduced in Liberia through the company’s focal person—who is the chief executive officer (CEO) and president, Mr. Momoh.The former Liberian photojournalist, Mr. Momoh lives in America, but presently in the country to fulfill his dream of helping Liberians.He is working with a few other Liberians selected to use the device. Perfect 3 is being tested on people who have diabetes in various communities across the country.Perfect 3 is a simple machine, which if properly established in Liberia, could be used by every household.According to him, the device would be spread in every corner of Liberia at a minimum cost. He described it as a very accessible piece of equipment that could be used by any individual; whether they were a medical practitioner or not.“My people’s health is important to me, this is the reason I brought this important device to the country,” Mr. Momoh declared.The healthcare company that produces the device is based in New York. According to Mr. Momoh, it intends to help Liberians by making available this new and a simple piece of technology to test people’s sugar content for Diabetes; one of the leading causes of death globally.Diabetes is usually a lifelong (chronic) disease in which there are high levels of sugar in the blood.Perfect 3 is made for people suffering from diabetes mellitus. It has blood glucose monitoring system that produces accurate results in only six seconds. This is done through the quantitative measurement of glucose in fresh capillary blood from the finger and forearm.The alternative site testing (on the forearm) in this system can only be used during steady-state blood glucose conditions.Most of the journalists who attended Tuesday’s ceremony on Front Street were themselves tested for symptom of the disease. Few of them were identified as being diabetic and were provided the necessary counseling.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Region 2 rice farmers dissatisfied with paddy prices

first_imgRice farmers in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) are dissatisfied with the current paddy prices being offered by millers. The prices range from 00-00 for grades A, B and C, and according to them the venture is quiet unprofitable.During interviews conducted with rice farmers along the Essequibo Coast, farmers complained that the price millers are offering cannot sustain their families and livelihood. Most of them explained that they have loans to repay at commercial banks and they are worried that with the current prices they will not be able to offset their overhead expenses.One rice farmer from Somerset and Berks, Bupesh Narine, said that this rice crop he only cultivated 10 acres. He said that it is better for the lands to be at rest than to invest in them. Narine said that paddy bug infestation was a major challenge for him and detailed that despite several sprayings his yield was less as compared to last crop.This farmer incurred additional expenses to purchase chemicals in an effort to mitigate the infestation. He is of the opinion that millers could offer better prices for a bag of paddy: “Imagine selling one bag paddy for $1500; (and) when you go to the shop $1500 cannot purchase anything, how can rice farmers survive? Even a Chinese food is more than a bag of paddy,” the farmer lamented.At Golden Fleece, Suresh Persaud also related that he was hoping that millers would have paid $3000 and over for a bag of extra A. He said that to his knowledge many farmers reaped low yield due to the high infestation of paddy bugs. With the low prices currently offered Persaud said many rice farmers will be reaping at a loss. Meanwhile, Guyana Times spoke with a few millers who pointed out that they do not have sufficient markets to sell the rice they are buying. Most of them are accepting paddy without even having a market. However one miller related that he is currently seeking markets in Panama and Jamaica. Samad Baksh from Imam Bacchus and Sons Rice Mill said that that mill is purchasing paddy at $1500-$2400 per bag. He said Grade C paddy price is negotiable. Baksh, an APNU/AFC councillor on Region Two Regional Democratic Council (RDC), said that sourcing markets for the rice is tiresome.He however said most of the paddy purchased are processed and sold at their own supermarket. Last crop rice farmers were offered low prices which forced many of them out of business. Region Two is predominately an agricultural region and 75 per cent of the population depends on rice cultivation for a livelihood. Over 34,000 acres of lands are under rice cultivation. Last year, Venezuela officially terminated Guyana’s PetroCaribe deal which saw the exchange of fuel and rice at “favourable prices”, as the Spanish-speaking nation teamed up with Suriname to pursue a similar agreement.The agreement, signed between Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro and his Surinamese counterpart Desi Bouterse, will allow Suriname to continue to receive favourable rates on oil in exchange for rice.last_img read more

Pellegrini thrilled Man City can boast one of the world’s best players in Aguero

first_imgManchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has heaped praise on Sergio Aguero after his four goals saw off Tottenham and believes he will be one of the best players in the world this season.The Argentine striker endured an injury hit campaign in the Blues’ Premier League title winning season last time out, but still managed 17 goals in just 23 appearances.City have eased the 26-year-old into action this season and it paid dividends against Spurs as Aguero started and ran riot, scoring all of the host’s strikes to become the the Blues’ leading Premier League goalscorer.And a delighted Pellegrini said: “I said before this game and now that in Sergio we have one of the three or four best strikers in the world.“It’s not easy for him when he had so many injuries in the last part of the season to perform like he did today. But I think this year we prepared him very well.“In the first three games he didn’t start, he was just involved for 30 or 40 minutes but now he’s 100 per cent fit and he’s working the whole week as normal.“He decided the first title here with Manchester City, last year he was very important when he was fit and I hope this year he will fight to be one of the best players in the world.”last_img read more

Not forgetting the promises made by some in Fianna Fail in the run-up to the general election to actually abolish water charges.”He concluded “This is why it is important that we ensure huge numbers turn out for this protest , quite frankly , it has been the mobilisation of thousands of people that has made this a issue that politicians cant ignore , and , it has been the visual and active campaign on the ground that has given so many householders the confidence to continue not to pay”.Transport plans in place for Right2Water demonstration in Dublin was last modified: August 30th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:donegaldublin protestIrish WaterOwen CurranRight2Waterwater chargeslast_img read more

Farm liability insurance — What’s in your policy?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest On one hand there are the optimists. They see the glass half empty and expect the best to happen in all situations. Then on the other hand are the pessimists, who often refer to themselves as realists. They anticipate what could go wrong and spend time thinking about alternate plans for when those unfortunate things actually happen. Pessimists, this article may not be for you, because you’ve thought these things through. So optimists- read on.How often do you think about your farm liability insurance? When is the last time you reviewed your policy with your insurance provider to make sure that you really are covered for everything for which you think you are covered?Farm liability insurance is one of the most common tools for agricultural risk management. Liability coverage helps you manage your liability for harm unintentionally caused to other people or property by your farming activities. It makes payments on your behalf to an injured party. It also defends you against lawsuits brought by a third party alleging liability within the scope of your policy.We are all wired differently in our risk management personalities. For some people it seems like a waste of time to anticipate what could go wrong on your farm. You’ve got insurance; it’s probably covered, right?Maybe, but maybe not. Depending on your policy and everything that you are doing in your farm operation, general farm liability insurance might not cover as much as you think. You should annually review your insurance policies with your insurance agent to make sure that all aspects of your farming operation are covered. What levels of liability coverage are recommended?According to Virginia Cooperative Extension, the consensus of insurance professionals is that any type of farm should have at least $1 million in coverage. But $1 million may not be enough for many farm operations in Ohio, based upon the farm’s assets and activities. A rule of thumb suggests an amount of coverage equal to the extent of your assets. For example, $5 million worth of real estate would mean $5 million in coverage. Another rule of thumb from Virginia Cooperative Extension is to obtain sufficient coverage to help you sleep at night. Request a quote for varying levels of coverage, and then gauge the increased cost compared to the increased comfort of higher coverage.What should you review in your liability policy?• What is the aggregate limit of the policy? The aggregate limit is the maximum amount your insurer will pay to settle your claims during the policy period, which is typically on an annual basis. Is this amount sufficient to address your risk?• What types of incidents are covered by your general liability insurance? A standard policy covers liability for bodily injury or property damage arising from incidents related to the farm business and its premises and operations, and can include incidents arising from sales of raw produce from a farm roadside stand. Does this general coverage address all of your farming activities?• What activities are not covered by your general liability insurance? A standard policy lists activities that are specifically excluded from coverage, which might include custom farming, special events on the farm, processed food products, farmer’s market sales and other off-farm activities, and non-farming businesses like excavation, snow removal or landscaping. Are you in need of additional coverage for these types of activities?• How does your policy address harm from manure, fertilizers, chemicals or contaminants? Most often, this type of harm is deemed “pollution” that is excluded from general liability coverage. A standard policy will likely define “pollution” as a discharge or dispersal of chemicals, wastes or contaminants on the farm premises, on another property or during transport. Is there is high risk of discharge of manure, fertilizer or chemicals in your farming operation that is not covered by your policy?• Does your coverage extend to your employees, family members and representatives and their actions? It is important to understand who a policy defines as “the insured,” which typically includes you as the policyholder and any legal entities you name for the farm business. A standard policy might also include farm employees and relatives residing with the policyholder as insured parties. Is everyone involved in your farm’s operations included in the policy? What gaps might exist in your liability policy?• What changes have been made in structures, land, equipment or other farm assets? If the value of your assets has grown since you first obtained your policy, you may need to revise your coverage limits.• What additional agricultural activities or other enterprises are in need of coverage? If you are involved in new enterprises or agricultural activities, you may need to increase your coverage or obtain an additional policy endorsement that addresses the activity.• Do you need to address pollution risk? If you use, store or transport manure, fertilizer or chemicals, you should assess the risk of a discharge that could affect crops, livestock, a waterway or another’s property. Supplemental coverage is available to address “pollution” incidents, which typically addresses sudden, accidental discharges of materials used in normal farming operations. Because pollution coverage can vary widely, it is important to understand both your risk of an incident as well as the limitations of your pollution coverage. What would happen if…• You cause a chemical spill when traveling from one farm location to another?• One of your farm employees causes an accident while driving machinery on a roadway?• You are the cause of an accident while plowing snow for a neighbor?• A family member is involved in an accident while custom baling hay on someone else’s property?It can be painful for the optimist to sit down and consider the “what if’s” of life. But it is much more painful to have the unexpected happen and result in costly expenditures that could even mean losing the farm. Make the time to know what’s in your policy.last_img read more
