first_imgDear Editor,Although no formal study has been done on the effect of the CPL games on the economy, there is no disputing that the matches have been giving a wallop to the overall economy. And as such, there should be bidding for more matches to be played in Guyana. Aside from the Providence stadium, consideration should be given to playing one match in the ancient county of Berbice (Albion), to give a spurt to that county’s economy. Albion did, at one time, host first class cricket as well as one-day internationals.The CPL matches have added significantly to the growth of the economy. Kudos to the organisers and promoters for the professionalism shown in the management and overall staging of the games. They are well organised, administered, and marketed as a business. In today’s sporting events, commercial interests have become paramount in the promotion and success of the games. It is noted that attention is paid to TV audience, tickets sales, web site, concession sales at the stadium, sponsorship, and various forms of media coverage, as well as promotion.The games have indisputably delivered a wide variety of (economic and social) benefits to the country as a whole, individuals, and to communities in the Greater Georgetown and East Bank Demerara areas. The matches have helped to increase personal economic prosperity, as well as provided employment opportunities to hundreds. In particular, the matches help to increase the productivity of individuals involved in cricket and those that sell varied items and foods near the stadium, boosting communities along the way. Besides direct economic benefits like sale of tickets and foods and drinks, there are indirect activities, like shopping for appropriate clothing, and entertainment (balloons, noise makers, other party favours), cricket equipment, hotels, uniform, tee shorts, advertising, printing, etc.Billions of dollars are added to the economy. There are jobs created, social get-togethers occur, there is media coverage, travel from abroad and local transport (car rentals, taxi service, minibus operations, etc). Media such as newspapers, television, the internet, radio, and social media are all providing access to the matches, which help to maintain interest in the games. The matches also showcase Guyana internationally on TV – hopefully creating an impression of our country that would make business people want to invest. This helps to maintain interest in their former homeland.Besides economic benefits, the CPL matches have also contributed in the social area, such as raising aspirations of youngsters to become CPL cricketers, forcing them to increase skill levels in the sports. Youths will be encouraged to aspire to become better cricketers, so they can be chosen for matches. This will force them to seek better training so as to improve their skills. This would help many to keep out of trouble with the law. It is a form of entertainment during peoples’ time off from work. It is also noted that the matches provide opportunities for social interaction at the stadium, bringing diverse people together and helping to narrow social and ethnic differences. It promotes social cohesion.Government should sponsor and promote these matches, for cricket is the only sport that brings the entire diverse nation together.The Government benefits enormously, not only from social cohesion, but economically as well, through taxes and the spread effects of spending related to the CPL matches. It supports many jobs – full time and seasonal, part time. When one does the math, several billions are added to the economy, and this money is re-cycled through various economic activities. Overall, the CPL matches contribute annually perhaps 5% of GDP, if not more. CPL has earned and deserves more Government support.Yours truly,Dr Vishnu Bisramlast_img read more

first_img “I missed Monday and Tuesday, but my son Donnie ran practice and my wife (Linda) videotaped practice, so I didn’t miss a thing. “The kids seem pretty united. They’re trying hard and I think we’re doing better. Sometimes something like this shakes up a team.” Said district spokeswoman Katie Orloff: “The coach is back at school and will coach (Saturday) night. That’s all I can say about it. I’m not allowed to elaborate on the situation.” Cindy Beavers, spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office, said neither party wanted to press charges. “A school resource officer said no prosecution was desired by either party involved,” Beavers said. Bloomington plays at 7 p.m. Saturday at Ramona. The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, but was switched at the request of the Rams due to homecoming. Markham has a 291-99-1 record in 32 years of prep coaching, including winning five CIF-Southern Section titles (three at Bloomington). His 1994 team went 14-0 and set a single-season national scoring record (since broken) of 880 points. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgLYNWOOD – Luis del Angel Garcia perks up as the first person in an hour approaches his information booth to ask about voting in the 2006 Mexican presidential election. But like millions of other Mexican citizens living in the United States, the man has no voter card and can’t return to Mexico to get one because he’s in this country illegally. Without the card, he can’t apply for an absentee ballot. That dynamic is threatening to scuttle the first-ever attempt by Mexico to let expatriates vote. With two weeks left before the Jan. 15 deadline to apply for absentee ballots, just more than 8,000 Mexicans in the United States – about two-tenths of 1 percent of those eligible – have filed the necessary paper work. Political analysts and advocacy groups blame the government for the low number of absentee applications, saying the process is difficult at best – and not just for Mexicans in the United States illegally. To get an absentee ballot, expatriates must send copies of their voting card, Mexican identification and proof of U.S. residency to Mexico’s Federal Electoral Institute. Those without the card must travel to Mexico to apply for one, then return a few weeks later to pick it up. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The approximately 11 million Mexicans in this country include more than 4 million eligible voters, according to the Mexican government. They represent a potentially huge bloc that could sway the July 2 vote – the first since Vicente Fox won the presidency in 2000, breaking the Institutional Revolutionary Party’s 71-year hold on power. Mexican law prevents Fox from seeking another term. Former Mexico City Mayor Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador had been the race’s front-runner, though recent polls show the race narrowing to a near-tie with candidates from Fox’s conservative National Action Party and the Institutional Revolutionary Party. The expatriate voting law passed in June was widely interpreted as recognition of the billions of dollars pumped into the national economy when expatriates send money home to relatives. Mexican officials insist tough regulations are necessary to ensure a clean election. They want greater participation by expatriates, “but in the end, it’s up to them to make that decision,” said Ruben Aguilar, a spokesman for Fox. last_img read more

first_imgMinister Finian Mc Grath and HSE officials are to meet with a delegation from the Cleary Centre in Donegal Town over growing concerns regarding previous commitments given regarding capital funding for the centre.Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher welcomed the move after he helped to organise the meeting.He said “I can now confirm that the Minister of State Finian Mc Grath along with HSE officials have agreed to meet with a delegation from the Cleary Centre in order to progress this project. I have been lobbying the Department and the Minister on this matter for some time and firmly believe the only way to progress this project is to have all parties around the one table in order to resolve the outstanding matters.” Pat the Cope added the Department has assured him that there are adequate funds within the HSE budget in order to deliver this project but meantime the project is stalled to all intents and purposes.“The Minister’s office has confirmed to me that he will meet with a delegation from the Cleary Centre on the 18th of April; the meeting will also have the necessary HSE Officials present who have first-hand knowledge of this project.“It is evident that the difficulties in progressing the Cleary centre project are down to Government procrastination. Earlier this year the HSE failed to meet a deadline in submitting an application for funding for the centre, but subsequent lobbying by me ensured that the application was accepted by the HSE National Capital & Property Steering Group.“It is essential that funding is approved for this project without further delay and the necessary permissions and funding are given to the centre.” Deputy Gallagher added stated the meeting arranged for the 18th of April provides an excellent opportunity to progress this project and the Department and HSE to co-ordinate their joint strategy for delivering this project.“All Dáil Deputies for the constituency have been invited to attend the meeting in addition to representatives of the centre. I am fully committed to seeing this project delivered and will maintain the pressure on the Minister’s office to keep it as a priority for funding.”Minister and HSE to meet delegation over future of Cleary Centre was last modified: March 7th, 2018 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:CLEARY CENTREDonegal TownmeetingPat The Cope Gallagherlast_img read more

first_imgOnce upon a time, air travel was just about the only time I could escape the Internet. Now with in-flight Wi-Fi becoming more pervasive, even air travel has become a time to check Twitter, respond to emails and keep up with Arsenal’s latest loss. I nearly always fly Delta, which has Wi-Fi on virtually every flight. But for those who fly other airlines, here’s a quick review of which airlines lead and which lag in providing in-flight Wi-Fi.As of September 2012, only 31% of US domestic flights came equipped with in-flight Wi-Fi, nearly always through GoGo Internet, though there are other options. Then, as now, Delta led the pack, but now everyone, including Delta, has expanded coverage. While only 5 to 10% of travelers actually use in-flight Wi-Fi, for those who do, it can be essential. (And peace destroying, but that’s hardly the airlines’ fault.)Here’s how things stack up:Air Canada: A few 319s have GoGo service, but only for travel over the USAirTran: All planes have GoGo Wi-FiAmerican: GoGo available on all 767-200 and 737 aircraft and most MD80 and 757 aircraftAlaska: GoGo on virtually all flights over the lower 48 states, except for a few of the oldest 737-400sDelta: Wifi on nearly all domestic flights, including all 319s, 320s, 737-700s, 757-300s, 767-300s, MD88s, MD90s, CRJ 700/900s and ERJ 170/175s, plus some DC9-50s and 757-200s. International flights are promised “soon” but there is no definition of “soon.”Frontier: GoGo available only on Embraer 190 aircraft.JetBlue: Doesn’t provide Wi-Fi at all, but promises a dramatically faster service in the near future.Southwest: Southwest uses Row 44, and just announced that 70% of its flights now have in-flight Wi-Fi, including all of its -700 and -800 aircraftUnited: GoGo currently on transcontinental “PS” flights only, and has started rolling out service to its international flights, with just two 747s equipped with satellite Wi-Fi systems as of March 2013, but is adding Wi-Fi to roughly 25 (domestic) planes each month in 2013. United will reportedy “first outfit the narrow body planes — such as the Airbus 319 and 320 — which fly domestically, but will also have more than 50 wide-body, international aircraft outfitted by the end of the year”US Airways: GoGo on all Airbus 321s, and is expanding to all Embraer 170, 175 and 190 aircraft in 2013Virgin America: GoGo on all planes, and up to 100 miles into MexicoAs for airlines outside the US, Ed Perkins points out that all of them use satellite systems, with some of the more advanced airlines being Emirates (Wi-Fi on all 380s), Gulf Air (more than 50% of its planes carry Wi-Fi), Lufthansa (Wi-Fi available on all 330s, some 340s and 747s) and Singapore (“select” planes). British Airways offers something called handheld link which allows you to use your mobile phone in the air, but it’s not Wi-Fi.As it stands, your best options for in-flight Wi-Fi are in the US. Abroad, well, you might just have to read a book.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.
