Alessandro Florenzi is already officially a Valencia player. The Mestalla club has welcomed you with a video in which the actor participates Enrique Arce, one of the protagonists of the series ‘The House of Paper’. In fact, the Italian side has dressed for the video of his presentation with the red monkey and Dalí’s mask, two of the symbols of the television series. “I have arrived,” says Florenzi in a video published in the official media of Valencia minutes before the player participated in his first training session. Florenzi went to Paterna where he would exercise from 18:00 on the orders of Albert Celades. Valencia, previously, made its hiring official as a loan until June 30. Florenzi was seen appearing at Paterna’s facilities accompanied by Albert Celades. The coach expected the arrival of a side from the beginning of the market and does not want to waste time adapting the Italian. Florenzi, who due to physical conditions could debut this Saturday in the match against Celta de Vigo, has visions to debut with Valencia next week, in the quarterfinal match of the Copa del Rey.

Wales severance criesAs Wales sugar workers continued to decry the challenges they are facing since the closure of the Estate, the former employees, their family members and other supporters once again protested the refusal of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) to give them severance pay as they called for Agriculture Minister Noel Holder’s removal.Enough is enough! Former Wales workers and their supporters gathered outside the Ministry of the Presidency and Agriculture Ministry, calling for severance benefits (Carl Croker photos)“Who must go? Holder must go,” was the resounding call by the ex-employees on Wednesday as they gathered outside the Ministry of the Presidency (MotP) and Ministry of Agriculture. The former employees made it clear that they must be paid their severance.This was underscored by father of four Alvin Bradford, who is demanding his termination benefits.“I does plant and I does cut lil broom and sell, but I can’t go at no company for wuk, they paying $1500 and $2000 a day – that can’t do nothing for me and I got four children and that ain’t easy to maintain. When the Estate shut down, that was the last one I get,” Bradford noted.Guyana Times was told that Minister Holder was upset that the protest was held outside his Ministry as the Special Purpose Unit (SPU) took over management of the Wales Estate, which was transferred from GuySuCo to the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL) last December.The workers said on Wednesday that not being able to earn was not only affecting the education of their children but their family life as a whole, since couples have had many arguments over declining finances.“Whatsoever thing you plant and sell, that’s it. You’re not getting work. Work hard at Wales, you can see it’s like ghost-town right now. Before when the Estate was alive, we were happy, but now we getting more sad, getting more quarrels, everything not right in the home,” a retrenched worker observed.Young men in their late teens and early twenties were also affected by the Estate’s closure. Supporting their colleagues, they indicated that they too were facing challenges. Amos Sookram told this publication that he was “expecting changes” from President David Granger, but as of now, he did not know “what is going on” in Guyana. A father of one, “Sonny”, said that he worked for five years and was waiting on his severance. He voiced concerns over the conduct of Education Ministry officials and the Police when going about “picking up children” in the Wales area, as he contended that the parents “have no choice” other than to keep their children at home.More than 300 former Wales employees who refused employment at Uitvlugt are still waiting on severance. The workers declined to take up work at the West Coast Demerara Estate since it is 22 miles away from Wales, noting that this violates the Termination of Employment and Severance Pay Act (TESPA). A court action since was filed on behalf of the workers by their representative body, the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) in March last year. However, to date, the matter is yet to be assigned to a judge by the acting Chief Justice. Speaking on this matter on Wednesday, GAWU President Komal Chand related that the Union was still waiting on the judicial arm to act on the matter.Official operations at Wales Estate were shut down in December 2017. Earlier this month, the former Wales sugar workers staged similar action and expressed much frustration that their colleagues from other estates were paid all or part of their severance, just weeks after the entities were closed.However, their former employer has long maintained that they were not entitled to this benefit with acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the State entity, Paul Bhim, saying earlier this month that GuySuCo has honoured all its obligations regarding the payment of severance at the Wales Estate.
Shaheed ‘Roger’ KhanShaheed “Roger” Khan, who was convicted of smuggling drugs and sentenced in 2009 to serve 15 years in a United States prison, is expected to be deported to Guyana on Monday.However, while there is much speculation on what investigations the Guyana Police Force may want to carry out, the Force is making preparations but is not ready to announce them.This is according to Crime Chief (ag), Michael Kingston, who made that disclosure during an interview with Guyana Times on Saturday.“Well, there is a plan but I don’t think we are prepared to disclose it at this point. Mr Khan will be treated like any other deportee that has been sent back to Guyana. That is, being escorted from the airport to the CID headquarters – that is the process,” Kingston told this publication.Although tight-lipped about what could be expected once Khan arrives at these shores, Kingston stated that while there will be no “special” treatment meted out to him, adding that the police have work to do.“Whatever matters, allegations have been made against him, those will be investigated. He will [be] treated like every other deportee that is being deported from the States. All deportees coming in normally are escorted to CID headquarters,” the Crime Chief (ag) added.However, Commissioner of Police, Leslie James when approached about the topic of Khan’s deportation to Guyana on Saturday also told this publication that there is “nothing special about Roger Khan”.“There is nothing special about this. He has served his time overseas already, hasn’t he? There is nothing special about Mr Khan.”In March, Khan had filed a petition which he had prepared himself for early release from the US prison, pursuant to good-time credit acquired under the First Step Act (Formerly Incarcerated Reenter Society Transformed Safely Transitioning Every Person Act) – which revises sentencing laws and expands re-entry and early release programmes.He challenged the Federal Bureau of Prisons’ (BOP) failure to properly calculate and award his good-conduct credit and as such, filed an emergency petition for a writ of habeas corpus, which is a writ requiring a person under arrest to be brought before a judge or into court, especially to secure the person’s release unless lawful grounds are shown for their detention.The court documents prepared by Khan himself and seen by Guyana Times, state “Comes now, Shaheed Khan, petitioner pro se, and prays this court to expedite this emergency petition for a writ of habeas corpus… because the time required for a normal briefing schedule will result in the incarceration of petitioner beyond the length of sentence he is supposed to serve”.According to the petition, Khan wanted the US court to order the BOP to recalculate his good-conduct credit under the First Step Act, which would see him being released earlier than July.Khan had explained in the emergency petition that the First Step Act was signed into law by President Donald Trump in December 2018 and seeks to ensure that all inmates within the Federal Bureau of Prisons receive the full 54 days of good-conduct credit, since the BOPs’ previous “erroneous interpretation” resulted in inmates only receiving 47 days per year in actual practice. However, after several court hearings, the petition was denied.Khan was sentenced in 2009 to 15 years’ imprisonment after he pled guilty to arms trafficking, drug trafficking, conspiracy and witness tampering. He was nabbed in neighbouring Suriname back in June 2006 after fleeing Guyana.In October 2015, former US Ambassador to Guyana Perry Holloway had told local reporters, when asked, that there is a possibility for the Guyana Government to access Khan’s testimony in the US courts. He had noted, however, that while there is a process to follow which has high requirements, his country would cooperate if the necessary procedures are followed.“If the rules and regulations of the agreement are done with Guyana, or we have signed up under the UN or OAS to allow for such a thing, we would be sure to be disposed to cooperating within the framework of the rule of law,” the US Ambassador had stated.In response, President Granger disclosed a few months later that as part of efforts to probe extrajudicial killings in Guyana, if there are connections to him, then the Guyana Government will seek to engage him.
Daniels, too, said his department often uses a helicopter to follow the driver. Deputies also employ vehicle immobilization devices such as the spike strip. Sheriff’s policy prohibits deputies from ramming a vehicle in motion, he added.. There’s also the option of calling off the chase. Deputies continually evaluate a situation while in a pursuit, he added. The Supreme Court “didn’t say you have to ram them, but that’s a tool you can use,” he said. “It’s a balancing of risk. Is it more dangerous to continue a pursuit or not?” The Sheriff’s Department also does not use the PIT (Pursuit Immobilization Technique) maneuver. But other agencies, including Montebello and Whittier police and the California Highway Patrol, do. In the PIT maneuver, a police car hits the other vehicle at a specific spot to make it spin out and stop. Montebello Police Department Chief Garry Couso- Vasquez said his department averages about 15 to 20 pursuits a year. The chases can last from one to 25 minutes. Officers can use the PIT maneuver, in addition to helicopter surveillance, radio communications and devices like the spike strip, Couso-Vasquez said. In the Georgia case reviewed by the high court, Coweta County Deputy Timothy Scott used his patrol car to ram the back of a Cadillac, which lost control, drove down an embankment, overturned and crashed. The driver, then-19-year-old Victor Harris, became a quadriplegic as a result. Harris then sued Scott, saying the deputy violated his Fourth Amendment rights to unreasonable search and seizure by using excessive force. Ten miles after the chase began, Scott asked to use the PIT maneuver and was given permission to do so by a sergeant. But Scott said he never employed the PIT because the Cadillac was moving too fast to safely do the maneuver. Instead, he applied his push bumper to the back of Cadillac. “Can an officer take actions that place a fleeing motorist at risk of serious injury or death in order to stop the motorist’s flight from endangering the lives of innocent bystanders?” wrote Justice Antonin Scalia. The justices viewed a videotape of the chase, which they pointed out contradicted the version of the story told by Harris and adopted by the appeals court. Scalia said that the video “closely resembles a Hollywood-style car chase of the most frightening sort, placing police officers and innocent bystanders alike at great risk of serious injury.” “The Supreme Court came down on the side of the police,” said Tom Marshall, spokesman for the CHP. “I don’t think it gives anybody carte blanche. They just ruled on one case.” He said the decision would not affect the CHP nor change the department’s policy on police pursuits. Officers and deputies who work in Los Angeles County, known popularly as the car-chase capital of the world, see their fair share of pursuits. About 17 percent of California’s 7,411 police chases last year happened in L.A. County. The latest county figures for this year show 114 police chases between Jan. 1 and Feb. 28. Thirty-four of the pursuits, the majority, lasted just one minute. The pursuits resulted in three deaths and 29 injuries. Statewide, there were 1,153 pursuits during the same time period, which resulted in nine deaths and 407 injuries. email@example.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The high court also found that the driver of the pursuit in question posed a substantial and immediate risk of injury to others. But the ruling will not change police-pursuit policies at the Whittier Police Department, where officials rely on helicopters to assist officers on the ground during chases, said Sgt. Mike Davis. While ramming a fleeing vehicle is not out of the question, Davis said Whittier officers tend not to employ the method. “It’s safer and we can back off. It’s more of a surveillance,” he said. Although the U.S. Supreme Court has given police agencies a green light to use deadly force to end reckless pursuits, don’t expect a rash of ramming maneuvers on L.A.’s already mean streets and freeways, area law enforcement officials say. “We have other tools,” said Lt. Richard Daniels of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s field operations, support services unit. On April 30, a majority of the justices ruled that a Georgia deputy’s attempt to stop a March 2001 chase by forcing the driver off the road was reasonable, even though the driver was left
MCFN and ACFN say they fear that the Site C dam will be the tipping point for the Delta, pushing this unique ecosystem beyond any possible recovery.ACFN Chief Allan Adam echoes the concerns of Courtoreille.“When they built the Bennett Dam, no one thought about how the Delta might be affected. No one thought about how First Nations might be affected,” Adam said. “Once the dam was built, it was too late to address our concerns. We are worried that history is repeating with Site C.”Both First Nations are signatories to Treaty and are located within the lower reaches of the Peace River and within the Delta.Advertisement Mikisew Cree (MCFN) and Athabasca Chipewyan First Nations (ACFM) say their challenge goes to the government’s discontent of considering Site C’s downstream effects on the Peace Athabasca Delta.“There is too much at stake in the Delta to ignore potential effects of yet another dam on the Peace River,” said MCFN Chief Steve Courtoreille. “Governments needed to take a cautious approach and ensure they understood effects to the Delta and on the Mikisew before they approved Site C. Unfortunately, they chose not to do so.”The Delta is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as it’s one of the largest freshwater deltas in the world, home to a number of threatened species.- Advertisement -It includes the ancestral lands and waters of the ACFN and MCFN people, an area where they maintain a harvest, practice their culture and employ their Treaty 8 rights.It’s also being reported that water levels in the Delta have been severely reduced by development, including prior dams on the Peace River.This decrease is said to have put an assortment of wildlife species at risk, changed vegetation, and made it more difficult for MCFN and ACFN members to access areas within the Delta and engage in their traditional practices.Advertisement

The current water treatment plant in Convoy.Donegal County Council and Irish Water have confirmed that contracts have now been signed for the upgrading of the waste water treatment plant in Convoy.The plans, which form part of an €18.4 million investment in wastewater infrastructure in Donegal, will see the construction of an extended sewerage plant to serve the town’s future waste water needs.Cllr Liam Doherty said this week’s announcement by authorities that contracts have now been signed to enable this project to proceed is of course to be welcomed. “It has been well known for some time now that Convoy’s sewerage collection infrastructure was not up to standard and this issue has long been a source of great frustration for local residents and business owners.“In fact, the town’s wastewater network was found to be ‘inadequate’ by the Enviornmental Protection Agency when a report into the area’s current plant was published a few years ago and since then I have been lobbying on behalf of local residents for the current network to be upgraded.“In March last year, I had contacted a number of locals to update them on the scheme when it was first confirmed that Convoy was to be included in the Donegal ‘Group B’ Sewerage Scheme, meaning that the town’s sewerage plant was to be upgraded.“Now, I am pleased to finally have it confirmed that the design of the new collection and treatment system is to begin in the coming weeks and it’s expected that the extension to the plant will be completed within the next two years. “I think it’s important to acknowledge the efforts of the community here in Convoy who, throughout this entire process, have been tremendous and their lobbying and campaigning to have this matter resolved has truly paid off.”CONTRACTS SIGNED TO UPGRADE CONVOY WATER TREATMENT PLANT was last modified: January 11th, 2016 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:Cllr Liam DohertyconvoydonegalWater Treatment Plant
