first_img…says OHS has hundreds of skills, Guyana teaching only 17Guyana has some way to go when it comes to its technical vocational training, a point emphasised on Saturday during an oil and gas forum when a Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET) official revealed how behind other countries Guyana really is.CTVET Head Floyd ScottAccording to CTVET Director Floyd Scott, one of several presenters at the forum in Albouystown, Guyana is missing hundreds of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) skills from its technical and vocational curriculums.“There is currently in the region of Occupational Health and Safety standards, 250 skills. In Guyana, within our TVET institutions, we only have 17 occupational skills being taught. So if there is a need for a skill outside of that 17, the foreigners will come.”Scott also revealed that during a recent meeting of the College of Science, Technology and Applied Arts of Trinidad and Tobago (COSTAATT), he learned that they were now issuing skilled certificates to categories of workers.“The agriculture workers, security workers and domestic household… What was interesting is that what the skilled certificates mean, it’s a work permit to travel throughout the Caricom region. Guyanese cannot get it…because that certification is not afforded in Guyana.”“With oil and gas, you will see tourism. You will see a lot of hotels. You will see the need for people to be daycare workers. And the foreigners aren’t going to come and ask you to work for them because you look good. They want to know you are capable of doing the job.”Local content and what it will do for Guyana has been a burning question since the announcement of oil in the Stabroek Block. After Exxon first tempered expectations by saying that few job opportunities will be created by oil, it has since said that it will help with local content delivery.One measure it has taken is to set up a Centre for Local Business Development (CLBD). A prevailing complaint has been that Guyanese are losing out to foreigners when it comes to local content, especially as the Local Content Policy is still to be in effect.However, there have been steps taken to beef up Guyana’s capacity to train students in technical and vocational skills. Last year, an agreement was signed between the Education Ministry and the Organisation of American States (OAS).This signing ceremony was attended by a representative from the OAS, Jean Ricot Dormeus; Education Minister Nicolette Henry; Assistant Chief Education Officer Patrick Chenadu; Permanent Secretary of the Education Ministry, Vibert Welch; and the Director of the Department of International Cooperation and Foreign Affairs, Vanessa Dickenson.Ricot Dormeus, in remarks, stated that along with this agreement, Guyana has also benefited from a scholarship programme established by the OAS to boost technical and vocational training in secondary and post-secondary institutions.“It comes under the umbrella of quality, inclusive, equitable education promoted by the Development Corporation Fund managed by the OAS,” Dormeus said.Implementation of this programme will assist in the production of skilled individuals — a necessity in today’s society – and further enhance the sustainable development factor.“Our people need good jobs and good technical [and] vocational education. They will be able to secure good jobs and even set up a business of their own in the future so that the [country improves and the economy grows],” Dormeus had added.last_img read more

first_imgPresiding Linden Magistrate Dylon Bess on Wednesday permanently disqualified the driver’s licence of a Speightland, Linden resident who appeared before him at the Linden Magistrate’s Court, charged with the offences of Driving under the Influence (DUI) and failure to have his vehicular parts maintained.Joshua Mangar was ordered to pay a fine amounting to a total of $12,500 after pleading guilty to the offences. The court heard that it was Mangar’s third DUI conviction, which, by law, is the requirement for disqualification. Prior to this, his licence was suspended twice for DUI. The court further heard that on December 4, 2019, Mangar, who is a taxi driver, drove motor vehicle HD 84 along the Bamia Public Road, Linden-Soesdyke Highway while his breath alcohol level was 185 micrograms, which is above the prescribed legal limit.He also admitted to failing to have the vehicular parts maintained in order to prevent danger. Prosecutor Vernetté Pindar told the court that it was Mangar’s third time appearing before the court on separate DUI charges, noting that his licence was suspended twice before and this was his third conviction. When asked by the Magistrate for a plausible reason why his licence should not be taken away, Mangar failed to offer a plea of mitigation. He was also fined $7500 or one week imprisonment on the DUI charge and $5000 for the motor vehicle maintenance charge.last_img read more

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. – British Columbians visiting other provinces and territories are now able to bring home liquor products for personal consumption without any restrictions or limits.Prior to July 8, 2019, residents were limited to bringing in no more than three litres of spirits, nine litres of wine and 25.6 litres of beer, cider and coolers. There was no limit on wine purchased from a Canadian winery and made from 100% Canadian product.There were also similar restrictions from other provinces on B.C. products, creating trade barriers. Personal alcohol exemption restrictions were lifted as of July 8, 2019, following a commitment made by Premier John Horgan at the premiers’ 2018 summer meetings.- Advertisement -This change aligns with similar action being taken in other provinces, which may result in increased sales for local producers to out-of-province visitors. Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia recently eliminated personal exemption limits and Prince Edward Island are committed toward implementation.“For too long, British Columbians faced restrictions when bringing wine, beer and spirits from other provinces back to B.C. Our government has taken action to fix this,” said Bruce Ralston, Minister of Jobs, Trade and Technology. “This policy is consistent with the direction from the Council of Federation meeting in Saskatoon last week, where Canada’s premiers committed to reducing limits on transporting alcohol across our borders.”last_img read more

first_img1 Reading winger Royston Drenthe is set to end his nightmare spell in England and make a move to China.Drenthe has struggled to make any impact with the Championship side and was shipped out on loan to Sheffield Wednesday this season.The Holland international has struggled to regain the form which saw him make a big move to Everton from Real Madrid back in 2011.Drenthe was not even given a squad number by former Reading boss Nigel Adkins during the summer.But having spent the first half of the season on loan at Hillsborough, the 27-year-old is now set to jet off to the Far East and hopes to finalise a move during the January transfer window.Reading boss Steve Clarke said: “The club called him back from Sheffield Wednesday because there’s an opportunity for Royston to get another move.“It’s progressing but until it actually happens it’s only speculation so we’ll have to wait and see.“But it looks in all probability that he’ll be going somewhere else for the second half of the season. If it comes off then it will be permanent.” Royston Drenthe last_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE REPORTSSATURDAYDowntown Cup Arranmore United 5 Erne Wanderers 0The visitors started this game well as Arran took time to settle. Erne Wanderers’ number 8 came close early on with a strike from 20 yards. Erne also had chances from two corners but failed to take advantage.Arranmore took the lead after some neat interplay between John Greene and Danny Rodgers down the left. Danny found the inrushing Gavin Mc Glanaghey at the back post with a great cross and he scored to put Arran one up. It stayed like this until the end of the half with the midfield becoming congested.Arran sprung out of the traps after the break and found themselves two up when Chris Mc Glanaghey found Daniel O’Donnell on the right wing. He beat his man and crossed to the back post for Gavin to score his second. The third goal followed minutes later as a bullet like header from Gavin found its way to the net. Erne came close after this on a few occasions but Michael McHugh and Danny Rodgers did well to break up the attacks. On 75 minutes Arranmore’s 4th goal arrived when Mark Ward beat his man down the line and crossed for Chris Mc Glanaghey to tap home. The 5th and final goal came in the 85th minute after Daniel O’Donnell put in a great cross for Michael McHugh to drill home.Team performance from Erne Wanderers with Martin Proctor and Gavin Mc Glanaghey best from Arranmore.Glenea United Reserves 1 Donegal Town Reserves 1Glenea got their Downtown Cup programme underway with this draw. The home side started brightly and created a couple of chances which they failed to take. Donegal came more into the game as the half progressed and took the lead on 30 minutes when Brian Feighan reacted quickest to a left wing cross to head home. Glenea equalized 5 minutes later from the penalty spot, which Declan Mc Garvey converted. At the start of the 2nd half Glenea started strongly and were unlucky not to take the lead through efforts from Dean Gallagher and Michael Mc Clafferty with both hitting the woodwork. As the game progressed both sides were finding it difficult to create any chances with Donegal’s best effort coming from a well struck free-kick that Shaun Mc Clafferty tipped over the bar. The home side had a late chance when Dean Gallagher got onto a loose ball in the box but saw his effort clear the bar. Best for Glenea were Shane Penrose, Kevin McFadden and Dean Gallagher while Declan Browne was best for Donegal Town. Referee: Paul Doherty.Curragh Athletic Reserves 0 Milford United Reserves 0 Curragh Athletic started this game brightly with good work from Gary Quinn setting up Dan O’ Brien for a shot in the 12th minute.

Curragh took control of the match in the second half with Dan O’ Brien hitting the post after good work from Gary Heaney. O’ Brien then sent in a corner but Justin Mc Bride’s header went inches wide. Curragh should have won this game when a great header from Sean Maxwell just missed the target. Best for Curragh was Micheal Dullaghan. Team effort from Milford.Glencar Celtic 3 Tullyvinney Rovers 0This game was played in perfect conditions at the flagpole field Rathmullan. Glencar started brightly with some early possession. Tullyvinney found their feet mid-way through the first half. However shortly afterwards they were undone by a great ball in behind their defence from Chris Malseed. Paddy Collins latched onto it and squared back to Shane Hilley who tapped into the empty net to give the home side the advantage. Shortly afterwards Glencar gave away a cheap freekick on the edge of their area. Froggy stepped up only to strike over the bar. The second half had much the same pattern as the first with both sides having spells of possession with no real goal threat from either team. It was only when Tullyvinney pushed for an equaliser that Glencar took full advantage and scored two goals in the last ten minutes. The first, a fine ball from Michael Molloy which found Martin Brogan who beat two men to finish calmly into the corner. The second saw excellent work from Shane Hilley down the right before he floated a ball under the crossbar for the simplest of tap-in’s for Michael Molloy. Best for Glencar: Raymond Quinn, good team performance from Tullyvinney Rovers.Keadue Rovers Reserves 0 Glenree United Reserves 2 Glenree went away from Central Park with a good victory from this cup game. It was a good day for football and the home side started well but had a goal disallowed on six minutes for offside. Keadue’s good opening continued and they looked dangerous especially from set pieces. Glenree had a good spell mid-way through the opening half and took the lead on twenty five minutes when Damien Nelis’s effort from the edge of the box went in off the post. Keadue responded well, creating a coupled of openings before Glenree took full control of the game on thirty four minutes. Damien Nelis again provided the finish for the visitors. Keadue had a good chance on forty two minutes, David McCarron shooting wide. Into the second half and after a scrappy start Glenree had an effort just wide of the post. Keadue went all out in an effort to gain something from the game. Adrian Hanlon set up Corey Gallagher’s who’s shot was saved. Donal Rodgers then shot over as Keadue kept up the pressure. Further chances fell to home sides way with Corey Gallagher and Donal Rodgers both hitting the woodwork. Best for Glenree were John Mc Clafferty and Damien Nelis while Conor Greene and David McCarron were best for the home side. Referee: Martin Coll.Gweedore United Reserves 1 Orchard F.C. 1This game got off to a lively start with both sides looking for the early goal. The home side probably edged the possession in the opening half with good chances falling to Sean Paul Mc Mahon and Eoin De Barra however Tommy Mc Laughlin in the Orchard nets was excellent on each occasion. The visitors had a number of half chances through Niall Bonner however the United defence stood firm. Orchard took the lead in the 41st minute when the ball was handled in the United eighteen yard box and the referee had no option but to award a penalty. Sean Sweeney stepped up and converted the spot kick to give the visitors a goal advantage at the interval. In the early stages of the second half United began to press in search of an equaliser however the Orchard defence and Mc Laughlin in nets were difficult to break down. The home side finally got the breakthrough in the 55th minute when Sean Gallagher scored from close range following a goal mouth scramble. There were chances at both ends with Stephen O’ Donnell and Hugh Martin Curran going close for the home side and Niall Bonner and Warren Mc Ginley going close for the visitors however this game ended in a 1-1 draw, which was probably a fair result on the day. Eoin De Barra, Sean Gallagher and Hugh Martin Curran played well for United with Niall Bonner and Tommy Mc Laughlin excelling for Orchard on the day. Referee: Michael MulhernSt. Catherines Reserves 0 Cranford United Reserves 0Both teams played well in the first half but cancelled each other out with very few chances created by either side. The second half saw ‘The Saints’ start the brighter with chances falling to Luke Kelly and Owen O’ Donnell but neither converted their opportunity. Dale Mc Fadden and Connor Shields showed impressive glimpses for Cranford. The Saints pressed hard but couldn’t break down a tough Cranford defence. Team performance from Cranford. Paul Cunningham best for St Catherines. Referee: Andrew MullanStrand Rovers 1 Castlefin Celtic Reserves 3Downtown Cup action came to Maghery on Saturday for the first time.

The second half kicked off with Strand again enjoying good periods of possession. The visitors somehow took the lead and scored two quick goals, Keith Nelis and Brian Doohan doing the damage. Nelis then got his second to kill the match as a contest. With little to play for Strand kept going until the end and grabbed a consolation goal when Darragh Hanlon scored. Good team performance from Castlefin with Paddy Glackin and Brendan Brennan best for Strand Rovers.Old Orchard Saturday Division OneMulroy Celtic 1 Fintown Harps AFC 1The home side went into this game on the back of six straight defeats but they played throughout as a team in confidence. Both teams created chances as the game settled. Darragh Gallagher broke the deadlock when he picked up a loose ball and drove at the home defence and rifledhome. Mulroy got back on level terms when the excellent Packie Mc Elwaine beat the offside trap, controlled the ball and fired into the bottom corner. Michael Mc Grory then failed to convert from the penalty spot. Both teams could’ve snatched it but it finished level. Paul Coyle and Packie were best for Mulroy while Darragh Gallagher impressed for Fintown.DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEREPORTSSUNDAYFAI Junior CupCappry Rovers 3 Kerrykeel ’71 F.C. 5A hat-trick in the final ten minutes turned this FAI Junior Cup match on it’s head as Kerrykeel ’71 F.C. progressed to the next round.

A good team effort from Cappry Rovers with Seamie ‘Coshie’ Friel, Mark and Johnny Friel best for Kerrykeel. Referee: Paddy MartinLifford Celtic 1 Aileach F.C. 4Aileach started brightest keeping Lifford on the back foot for the early part of the first half without troubling Paul Given in the Lifford goal. Ross Porter had Lifford’s best chance of the half on the half hour mark but could only find the side netting. The Game looked like remaining a stalemate as half time approached until Aileach finished during a goalmouth scramble following a corner. The second half began with Aileach on the back foot as Lifford pressed more men forward. This proved to be Lifford’s downfall as they were caught on the counter-attack and Anthony Doherty finished from 18 yards. Lifford got back in the game immediately when Johnny Robb converted a penalty. Lifford looked like equalising as the game neared the eighty minute mark only to again to get caught on the counter-attack when Doherty grabbed his second. Aileach finished the game off when they grabbed their fourth following a late corner. Good team performances from both sides.Ulster Junior CupBallybofey United 0 Redcastle F.C. 1A goal two minutes from time was enough to send Redcastle F.C. through to the next round of the Ulster Junior Cup at the expense of Ballybofey United. The Twin Towns men put their off field difficulties aside as they attempted to progress to the next round of this competition. As the match unfolded their ambitions looked to have substance as they gave as good as they got against the “Foyle Park” men from Inishowen’s top flight.Chris Darby and Niall Mc Closkey were the first to try their luck albeit from distance. Redcastle then had the best chance of the match when Colm Mc Laughlin went through one on one with Chris Patton in the Ballybofey net. With only the keeper to beat Mc Laughlin pulled his shot wide of the post. Mc Closkey then sent Darby clear on the left-wing but his attempted cross was cut out by Redcastle’s Aidan Cunningham. Darren Kelly and Darragh Redmond were also playing well for the home side with the experienced John Gregg commanding around the centre of the field. Patton made sure it would remain scoreless at the interval as he saved well from Mc Laughlin who looked the most likely avenue for a Redcastle goal.At the start of the second half Darren Kelly had a shot saved by Michael Mc Cole after he had been set up by Redmond. Mc Laughlin then got in behind the Ballybofey defence and was taken down by Bonar. James Curran stepped up to send the spot kick high over the crossbar. Ballybofey later had a strong penalty claim of their own waved away by match official Packie Coll when Darragh Redmond was the subject of a two man avalanche just inside the Redcastle area. Mikey Grant replaced Gregg and with him went Ballybofey’s midfield experience. Redcastle took control and in the eighty eighth minute found the winner when Cunningham fed Mc Laughlin who had plenty to do as he stretched out his leg to get his toe to the ball with Patton rushing off his line in an effort to prevent the strike. It was enough to send the Inishowen men through to the next round of this season’s competition. Best for Ballybofey United: Patton, Gregg, Darby and Hannigan. Best for Redcastle: Curran, Breslin and Mc Laughlin. Referee: Packie CollBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionGweedore Celtic 1 Rathmullan Celtic 5Rathmullan had a convincing victory over the home side at the Screaban.

Thomas Diver scored a consolation goal ten minutes from time. A good performance by Rathmullan. Referee: Ed MooreKilmacrennan Celtic 0 Glenea United 2Kilmacrennan found themselves under strength for this encounter, most notably Timmy Burke who was injured and Steve Mc Elwaine who had attended a function the previous night. Kilmacrennan started the brighter but found themselves one down when Ryan McFadden finished off a swift counter attack with a header. Both teams made chances but Glenea went two up on the hour mark when Donal Coll scored after a goalmouth scramble. John Sandilands could have got one back but inadvertently fired wide from 5 yards. Glenea closed out the game to take the three points.Milford United 1 Cranford United 2Milford lost their local derby against Cranford at Moyle View Park. Milford started brightly and were well in control and went one up through Gary Merritt on 30 minutes.

The game itself was a one sided affair as Deele manager Willie Curran rang the changes following a run of bad results. The tone of the game was set early on as Cathal McGowan thundered in on a number of tackles. Deele didn’t let the away side into the game at all and opened the scoring early on when Conor Catterson fired home from inside the box. Shortly after Deele striker supreme Shane Gallagher opened his account for the day as he finished following good work from Aidy Gallagher. Aidy Gallagher himself created and finished another fine goal on the half hour. Conor Catterson added his second in the 35th minute, a sweet strike from 25 yards.

On the 28th minute Dunlewey struck again after a long range shot from John Cannon was deflected past the keeper. Dunlewey made it all square when a corner from the right was scored by Hugh Cannon.

John Cunningham in nets for Glenree kept the scores level going in at half time. Glenree had more bite in the second half but shots from Dan Mc Groddy and Damien Nelis were well saved. With Emmet Kelly playing a blinder for Raphoe Glenree could not get a foothold on the game and Raphoe almost doubled their lead before the end. A well deserved win for Raphoe with Emmet Kelly man of the match.Whitestrand United 2 Letterbarrow Celtic 0Fresh from their victory over Dunlewey Celtic last week Letterbarrow Celtic came to Whitestrand Park today and started brightly causing the home team some concern in the opening exchanges. However on 12 minutes Whitestrand got the opening goal through Paul Lynch. Good defensive play from Eamon Martin sent James Gallagher down the left wing, Gallagher neatly skipped past two defenders and delivered an inch perfect cross for the in-rushing Lynch who headed past the visitor’s keeper. Letterbarrow had an opportunity to get back on level terms on 20 minutes but their effort was well saved by Benny Friel. The home side had further attempts on goal on the 21st minute with a Sean Gallagher effort and again in the 35th minute when Paul Lynch headed wide. However the Strand got the vital second goal on the stroke of half time through Sean Gallagher. Gallagher picked up the ball in the middle of the park and unleashed a stunning drive, with his un-favoured left foot, which flew into the top left hand corner of the net past the helpless Letterbarrow keeper. At this early stage, Gallagher’s strike must be a strong candidate for goal of the season. The half time score was 2-0 to the home team.The second half proved to be a very evenly contested affair with both teams canceling each other out. With the visitors pushing for a goal to get them back into the match Whitestrand broke on several occasions in pursuit of their third goal but the final pass was often lacking. Letterbarrow’s best effort of the half came in the 80th minute but the Strand defence held firm. Eddie Blake squared the ball to Jerome Burke who somehow fired over the bar when it seemed easier to score should have wrapped up the game in the 85th minute.
