Govt withholding funding for Guyana Prize for Literature awards

first_img…Minister unaware of responsibility for PrizeThe coalition Government, in what has been described as an unprecedented move, is yet to provide funding for the prestigious Guyana Prize for Literature Awards, according to a source close to the Guyana Prize Committee.The prestigious award ceremony was supposed to be held in July of 2017, withMinister with responsibility for culture, Dr George NortonMarch 31 being the deadline for submissions. However, it is yet to be held since the Government has not released funding for the Guyana Prize Committee to go ahead with the awards.The source indicated that the committee is uncertain as to when the awards would be held since the Government is yet to signal its commitment to funding for the event to be kicked off.When contacted, Secretary of the Guyana Prize Committee, Al Creighton, was unable to comment on the issue of funding but noted that the awarding of the Guyana Prize for Literature is slated for 2018. However, when asked for a period for the holding of the awards, Creighton said he could not provide such since there is still some judging left to be done before they can proceed further.Creighton noted that the procedures for the prize have been put over to 2018. “The activities that should have taken place have been put over to this year, 2018, so that the other procedures for the prize would be completed in 2018. Basically, everything to do with the completion of the judging and the announcements and so on (remains to be completed),” he stated.The Guyana Prize falls within the purview of the Department of Culture but whenSecretary of the Guyana Prize Committee, Al Creightoncontacted, Minister with the responsibility for culture, Dr George Norton indicated that he is unsure whether he is responsible for the prize but did commit to finding out.“I am not sure if it falls within my purview, but I did dispatch a letter to the Secretary of the Committee, Al Creighton to find out what is the status quo with the shortlisting of the awardees and I am waiting on a response,” he said.“I am interested in the prize and if it falls within my purview I will make arrangements as soon as possible to ensure that it is facilitated at an early date because it is overdue,” he added.The Guyana Prize is awarded to writers of Guyanese nationality in different categories. These categories include Best First Book of Poetry, Best First Book of Fiction, Best Book of Poetry, Best Book of Fiction and Best Book of Drama. Additionally, the Guyana Prize also awards books of poetry, fiction and drama in separate categories for Caribbean writers.The Guyana Prize for Literature was established in 1987 to provide encouragement for the development of good creative writing among Guyanese in particular and Caribbean writers in general. The prize is for published books and is open to works by citizens of Caribbean countries: Caricom States, the Commonwealth Caribbean, and the Netherland Antilles.To be eligible for entry, a book must have been written and published in English and for drama-entries must be full-length plays. For fiction and poetry, the publishers must enter works. No more than one work by any author may be entered in each category.Over the years, the prize has attracted both praise and criticism and would have awarded several established writers aiding in the development of the literature sector in Guyana. The judges are pulled from both the foreign and local literary sector with vast knowledge in literature. The panel of judges includes both writers and critics from within Guyana and abroad. The list of awardees includes Dr Paloma Mohamed, David Dabydeen, Mark McWatt, John Agard and Pauline Melville.last_img read more

Soil contamination source unknown

first_imgAfter more than 20 years, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is still trying to identify a major source of soil and groundwater contamination in a San Gabriel Valley Superfund site, which covers Alhambra, San Gabriel, San Marino, South Pasadena, Rosemead and Temple City. The Sheriff’s Department’s Temple Station, recently believed to be the source, was cleared this week by the U.S. EPA, averting a possible $14.4 million cleaning bill. County studies reviewed by the EPA found that a plume of contamination drifting beneath the station came from an unknown source northeast of the station, said Jan Tanaka, from the county’s Chief Administrative Office. “We know it’s coming from that direction,” Tanaka said. “We don’t know if it’s coming from across the street, or further north, or further east. We only know it’s not coming from our site.” “This is groundwater. It moves, like a river,” Kenoyer said, trying to explain why the contamination must be cleaned at the source. “If you left your garden hose running, you’d never be able to clean the runoff until you turned off the hose.” The CAO’s proposed budget for the county, released Monday, still includes $14.4 million for cleanup at the Temple Station. The figure is based on an earlier EPA report that incorrectly blamed the station for the contamination. The report has not been released to the public. Because the station is no longer blamed, the county will not be responsible for the expensive process of pumping the groundwater to the surface and filtering it. However, the surface soil is also contaminated, and chemical-laden vapors could be leaking into the air, officials said. If the vapors make their way into a closed space – such as the Temple Station – they could present a danger over the long term to people who breathe them in, Tanaka and Hanusiak said. That means the county could still need to ventilate the soil, Tanaka said. “That costs less than half, maybe even less than a quarter – significantly less than \ we had estimated on a worst-case basis,” he said. However, the budget won’t be adjusted until after the EPA determines what measures the county should take regarding the soil vapor, Tanaka said. The EPA will be incorporating the county’s recent groundwater and soil studies into a new report that Hanusiak expects to release for public comment in June. In the meantime, the EPA will begin anew in the search for the source of the two contaminants – trichloroethene (TCE) and tetrachloroethene (PCE, also called perchloroethene). They are chlorinated solvents, or “degreasers” that clean oily build-ups out of machinery and grease stains off clothes. They are used in everything from maintenance of airplanes and cars to dry cleaning, Hanusiak said. The sources could come from decades ago, she said. “Back in the ’30s, we didn’t have standard measures for disposing it,” Hanusiak said. “So people sometimes had something called a dry well, a hole they would dig in the ground where they would dump the stuff and bury it, or an underground tank that would develop a leak.” But dangerous exposure levels are measured over decades, not days or years, she added. Temple City’s public services manager, Chuck Erickson, said it’s nothing to worry about. “There’s no concerns for the city or the residents,” Erickson said. “The EPA is taking care of it and they caught it in time.” alison.hewitt@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2730 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The contaminants are “possible” carcinogens, and in large quantities cause tumors in mice, said Lisa Hanusiak, the U.S. EPA’s remedial project manager for the San Gabriel Valley Area 3 Superfund site. Area 3 has been on the “back burner” because other areas in the site are more contaminated, Hanusiak said. “There is not a current risk from the contamination of the groundwater, because there are controls in place to make sure that the water is safe for drinking,” Hanusiak said, pointing out that the affected groundwater is not as deep as the aquifers that local water companies draw from. “However, we do definitely have an interest in cleaning up the groundwater and not just leaving the contamination, because all the groundwater is used for drinking water eventually,” she said. But cleanup can’t begin until the source of the contamination is found, said Galen Kenoyer, a hydrogeologist consulting with the county. last_img read more

Five reasons Germany failed at the World Cup

first_img0Shares0000Germany finished last in their PoolKAZAN, Russian Federation, Jun 27 – Germany have failed to qualify from the group stages at a World Cup finals for the first time since 1938.AFP looks at five reasons why the holders performed so badly in Russia: Loew’s misguided loyaltyHead coach Joachim Loew has always stuck by his tried and trusted stars — but it was Germany’s undoing in Russia.Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira are glaring examples of Loew’s misguided loyalty.Thomas Mueller was unconvincing in Russia © AFP / Roman KruchininBoth were dropped for the 2-1 win over Sweden after woeful performances in the opening shock defeat to Mexico, yet neither made an impact when recalled for Wednesday’s 2-0 defeat to South Korea.Thomas Mueller, one of the heroes from the 2014 win, was rightly dropped from the starting 11 against South Korea but failed to make an impact as he came off the bench.Even Toni Kroos, fresh from winning the Champions League with Real Madrid, was a shadow of his usual self in Russia, only redeeming himself with the winning goal against Sweden.A cleanout of the winners from four years ago, many of whom are past their sell-by dates, is on the cards.StagnationRussia 2018 is a serious dent to Loew’s golden reputation and his 12-year reign could be coming to an end.Loew has already said he is considering his future, despite signing a contract extension until 2022 only last month.Germany have stagnated in the last 12 months.Loew has not developed the team tactically, torn between the 4-2-3-1, which won the World Cup, or toying with deploying a back three.A lack of tempo in Germany’s game has been a glaring factor and when the pressure was on, none of his stars could crack the South Korean defence.Talent unnurturedGermany won last year’s Confederations Cup without their stars, but Timo Werner was the only emerging starlet to be given a regular starting berth in the senior team.Leon Goretzka, who led Germany’s midfield brilliantly at the Confederations Cup last year, Niklas Suele, Julian Brandt and Sebastian Rudy are only given their chance when Loew’s first-choice stars are suspended or injured.Manchester City’s Leroy Sane was in the preliminary squad but later cut © AFP / JOE KLAMARThe decision to omit Manchester City’s Leroy Sane, the Premier League’s Best Young Player last season, from the World Cup squad spoke volumes when fresh impetus was badly needed in Russia.‘Tournament team’ mythBefore the World Cup started, both Kroos and Jerome Boateng confidently described Germany as “a tournament team” who switch on for finals, and the feeling was things would just click eventually.The myth was blown clean away by the defeats to Mexico, South Korea and the nervy, last-gasp win over Sweden.It is a consequence of too many Germany stars enjoying their status as World Cup winners without the performances to back it.Germany qualified for Russia with a perfect record of ten wins and as Mats Hummels admitted after defeat to South Korea, the last time the team played well together was late 2017.The writing on the wall, from defeats to Brazil and Austria, plus a shaky win over Saudi Arabia in a pre-tournament friendly, was ignored to Germany’s peril.Shaky defenceIn Russia, Germany were nowhere near the compact unit which conceded just four goals in seven games at the 2014 World Cup.First-choice centre-backs Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng are short of pace and too often left to fend for themselves at the back.Despite only recently returning from a fracture foot, goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was too often called upon as Germany’s last line of defence.The lack of German defenders hurling themselves into tackles, like they did in Brazil four years ago, has been glaring in Russia, as was the lack of composure when defending.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Revealed! Computer ranks clubs most likely to finish fourth in Premier League

first_img 7 7 7 7 1. Arsenal – 30.174% chance of finishing fourth in the Premier League – It’s the Gunners who are deemed most likely to finish fourth by sportsclubstats.com, but it’s a result, which, if it occurs, won’t be much cause for celebration among fans at the Emirates Stadium. 3. West Ham – 18.663% chance of finishing fourth in the Premier League – The Hammers’ hopes of qualifying for the Champions League were given a real boost thanks to their comeback against Everton and Manchester United’s defeat to West Brom. Can they leave Upton Park in style and make the top four? 7. Leicester City have a 1.586% chance of finishing fourth in the Premier League, according to stats boffins (see explanation below) – Find out which clubs are most likely to finish fourth by clicking the arrow above, right… – With the Foxes favourites for the title it’s unsurprising to see their chances of finishing fourth so low. 7 4. Manchester United – 9.062% chance of finishing fourth in the Premier League – A defeat to West Brom on Sunday was a huge blow to the Red Devils’ top four hopes. They shouldn’t be written off just yet, though. 5. Tottenham – 7.2% chance of finishing fourth in the Premier League – A 2-2 draw with north London rivals Arsenal has dampened title talk at White Hart Lane but they are odds on to qualify for the Champions League – and most likely finish higher than fourth. 7 6. Liverpool – 5.173% chance of finishing fourth in the Premier League – The late, and controversial, win over Crystal Palace on Sunday has kept Jurgen Klopp’s top four hopes alive – only just though. 2. Manchester City – 27.344% chance of finishing fourth in the Premier League – Manuel Pellegrini’s men have got a game in hand which, if won, would take them above Arsenal and keep them in the title hunt. The extra game at this stage also means they’re predicted more likely to finish in third place rather than fourth at this stage. The Premier League title race is one of the most exciting and enthralling for several years but there is another battle brewing just a few spots down.As West Ham and Liverpool find form, they’ve become contenders for the fourth and final Champions League qualification place, along with Manchester United.But do any of these clubs have the best chance of finishing fourth?We wanted to know which club was in pole position to claim fourth place at the end of the season and the boffin behind Sports Club Stats, might be able to give us an idea.Using a complex algorithm, involving millions of simulated fixtures – explained here – the website analyses the chances of a team finishing in each position.And it’s thrown up some interesting numbers, which you can see by clicking the right arrow above.Of course, no one knows for sure how the table will end up, but it’s fun to discuss.Who do you think will finish fourth this season?

DONEGAL GIRLS AS YOUNG AS FOUR ALREADY SEE THEMSELVES AS SEX OBJECTS – WORRYING SURVEY

first_imgDonegal girls as young as four years are already beginning to see themselves as sex objects, a new survey by a local business has found.The new Lottie doll is seen as a safe doll for Donegal children.The company, founded by Ballybofey businessman Ian Harkin, said girls are already seeing themselves as sex objects and have a worrying preoccupation with their body image.Arklu, which is moving its base from London to Letterkenny in the New Year, has recently brought out Lottie, which is being dubbed the world’s first asexual doll for children. The survey of 350 parents of girls aged 3-9 in Ireland found• 84% of parents said girls are being pressured into growing up too quickly; it is a real concern.• 85% of parents said manufacturers and retailers have a responsibility to tackle this.One of the women surveyed was Lynn Kavanagh agreed that shops are having a huge influence on her 3 year old daughter. “She sees kiddie versions of adult underwear in the shops and wants to be like mummy and have them. To me they shouldn’t be available, and sexualise girls at too young an age.”Lucie Follett, Director and co-founder of Arklu, say they hope their Lottie doll will allow children to play with dolls without seeing them as sex objects.“We were initially influenced by research by Dr Margaret Ashwell OBE which concluded that current fashion dolls on the market could promote girls’ insecurity about their body image.“We decided to investigate further and look into other concerns that parents have for their young daughters and we fed many of those key points into our doll development. Ultimately, we wanted to create a doll that is fun, but one that provides a refreshing alternative”. DONEGAL GIRLS AS YOUNG AS FOUR ALREADY SEE THEMSELVES AS SEX OBJECTS – WORRYING SURVEY was last modified: November 28th, 2012 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:businessman Ian HarkinLottiesurveylast_img read more

Players plagued by injuries

first_imgInjuries hit the fantasy football world hard the past couple of weeks with a slew of top players missing action. If you’ve been lucky enough to avoid the injury bug, and you’ve accumulated some depth midseason, you should make use of your good fortune. It’s time to plan ahead. Players such as Darrell Jackson and Mark Bulger are going to be out a while but are expected to return before the fantasy playoffs. Carnell Williams, Fred Taylor, Corey Dillon, Ahman Green, T.J. Duckett, Randy Moss, Isaac Bruce and Joe Horn all missed games last week and have an uncertain status for the near future. Owners of these players might be getting desperate for a victory. Knowing they can’t count on their injured player, they may be willing to trade for your depth in an effort to save their season. If you have some good reserves, offer them out for injured players to stash away on your bench for now. Come playoff time, they could win you a championship. QUICK TIPS As mentioned here two weeks ago, Eric Moulds’ situation with a new starting quarterback was worth watching. Well, after scoring two touchdowns in two games with Kelly Holcomb throwing the ball, Moulds has re-established himself as a No. 3 or perhaps No. 2 fantasy receiver. … Doug Gabriel could make a decent bye-week fill-in for Oakland while Randy Moss is out, but don’t expect much. … If you’re desperate for a quarterback, it seems like the writing is on the wall for Jeff Garcia to replace Joey Harrington on the Lions in the next few weeks. … Green Bay TE David Martin could make a good starter while Bubba Franks is out. Brett Favre loves his tight ends. … Keep an eye on Nate Burleson this week, as he is expected to return to the Minnesota lineup after an injury layoff. If a frustrated owner dropped Burleson while he was out, pick him up before the game just to be safe. … Jamie Martin is a viable fantasy starter while Bulger is out. However, be careful whom you drop for Martin. He’s likely only going to be useful for two weeks. … Don’t be be surprised if Julius Jones misses another game. High ankle sprains take time to heal. Without Jones, there’s no viable running back starter in Dallas among Tyson Thompson, Anthony Thomas and Marion Barber. Thompson is the one to have, it’s just that he angered Parcells with mistakes in practice before last week’s game. Maybe he’ll learn from that this week. FANTASY ISLAND A look at the week ahead for fantasy football owners: Player to start: Donte Stallworth had a good game last week in place of the injured Joe Horn with 83 yards and a touchdown. Horn might play Sunday, but will be limited by his hamstring injury. Even if Horn does play, there should be plenty to go around for Stallworth against a weak St. Louis Rams secondary. Player to sit: Jamal Lewis has struggled all season. He’s beginning to lose carries to Chester Taylor. Now Lewis goes up against one of the best run defenses in Chicago. A low-scoring game could keep the Ravens running, but with Taylor taking carries and Baltimore unlikely to be around the end zone, Lewis is not a good play. Player to pick up: It looks as though Greg Jones will get the carries in Jacksonville over Alvin Pearman and LaBrandon Toefield when Fred Taylor is out. Pick him up if he’s available in your league. You know how Taylor’s missed games can come in spurts.

Newer hybrids falling short

first_img Take the hybrid Chevrolet Silverado, which gets the same 19 miles per gallon on the highway as a regular Silverado. On city streets it gets 17 mpg, 2 mpg more than the nonhybrid. The Silverado is among six hybrids either available or being designed by GM, the world’s largest automaker. All but one is an SUV or truck. GM says small improvements make a big difference. Upping an SUV’s performance from 10 mpg to 11 mpg will save 110 gallons of gas every 12,000 miles, points out GM engineer Tim Grewe. That’s more than the 100 gallons saved by increasing a sedan’s fuel economy from 30 to 40 mpg and driving it the same distance. Grewe’s formula works only because SUVs use so much more gas. The 11-mpg SUV needs 1,090 gallons to go 12,000 miles; the 40-mpg sedan needs only 300 gallons. Lawrence Dewey, 78, is among those not getting the mileage he expected from a hybrid. Dewey and his wife love the plush interior, moving headlights, and “get up and go” of their new Lexus RX 400h hybrid. The only problem, he says, is that it only averages 25 mpg, about what he used to get in a nonhybrid Volvo Cross Country SUV. The disappointing mileage has caused him to drive less. “We look at that figure and go, do we need to go now?” said Dewey, who lives just outside Madison, Wis. “We’ll combine it with another trip.” Dewey’s other quarrel is with the Environmental Protection Agency, which rated the vehicle at 31 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. The agency’s mileage figures for new cars often are inflated because testing conditions yield better efficiency than real-world driving. Dewey doesn’t come close to saving enough gas to make up the price difference between the $46,060 400h and the $37,770 nonhybrid Lexus RX 330. The hybrid does measure up in other areas: It goes from 0-60 mph in 6.9 seconds and has 268 horsepower. That’s nearly one second faster and 45 horsepower better than the RX 330. “A lot of people, whether they have size needs or need to carry more cargo … they like to have a bigger car; in order to reach out to those folks you have to offer them performance,” said Lexus spokesman Greg Thome said. “Otherwise they wouldn’t even look at buying a hybrid.” An estimated 220,000 hybrids will be sold domestically this year, about 1.3 percent of the market, according to car-industry analyst J. D. Power & Associates. That’s a major jump from last year, when 87,000 hybrids accounted for 0.5 percent of domestic car sales. Some cutting-edge hybrid researchers believe consumers shouldn’t have to choose between performance and efficiency. At San Diego State University, engineering professor Jim Burns led a student team that built the Enigma – a diesel hybrid convertible that goes from zero to 60 mpg in 4.3 seconds while getting 80 mpg. A close performance equivalent is a Dodge Viper, which gets about 12 mpg city and 20 mpg highway. Burns, who says he would consider mass-marketing Enigmas for $60,000 if he could get 1,000 orders, says it will take flash, not just good mileage, to make the public fall in love with hybrids. Some environmentalists are experimenting with the same pragmatic approach. Earlier this year, the Sierra Club handed out its first praise for a hybrid SUV, Ford’s Mercury Mariner, which gets an EPA-rated 33 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. “I think it would be vastly preferable for everyone to drive a 45- or 55-mpg vehicle and the technology exists to do that,” said Becker, the organization’s global warming specialist. “But not everyone wants to buy a sedan. … If they’re going to buy an SUV, it’s better that they buy one that gets over 30 mpg than under 20.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SAN DIEGO – When automakers rolled out the first hybrid cars, drivers who wanted their spectacular fuel economy had to settle for weird shapes and a lack of luxury options. Now it seems the high-mileage, low-frills trend in hybrid automaking may prove shorter than a Hummer’s trips between fill-ups. Newer hybrids are using the added boost from their gas-electric engines for more acceleration and power. But more mean equals less green. To attract drivers looking for large and luxurious vehicles, automakers such as Lexus and General Motors Corp. are building hybrids with the looks and size of regular cars. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals The focus on performance sacrifices the kind of jaw-dropping efficiency that got hybrids noticed in the first place. Environmentalists say automakers are squandering gas-scrimping technology that reduces air pollution as well as the nation’s reliance on foreign oil. “Consumers are enthralled by hybrids because they sip gas and don’t guzzle it, and they pollute less,” said Dan Becker, director of the Sierra Club’s global warming program. “So if you have a hybrid that guzzles and doesn’t pollute less, then what are you doing?” Though SUV sales have dropped amid erratic gas prices, half of the roughly 30 hybrids that are now available or that automakers plan to mass-market are either pickup trucks or sport utility vehicles. Automakers say gas guzzlers have the most room for improvement. But some new hybrids barely get better mileage than their nonhybrid counterparts. last_img read more
