Ethnic Relations Commission must first work with politicians

first_imgDear Editor,The constitutional Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) should direct its work as a matter of high priority at political leaders, Ministers of Government, members of the National Assembly, public servants, politicians and political groups of the People’s Progressive Party and the People’s National Congress.Working first with these categories can impact positively on race relations and social cohesion. They are the influential ones who – by private and public statements, conduct, and practice in their public duties – set the national tone for the politics of race and lust for power in Guyana. These groups should be the primary targets to promote peace, justice and reconciliation for the national community good.The ERC will be wasting its time and resources and will achieve nothing, unless it engages the political players and public officials identified above in a determined effort to promote reconciliation for improved race relations for the building of national unity. The ERC should simultaneously engage and investigate thoroughly public employment practices to determine fairness, discrimination based on ethnicity, political affiliation, or political opinion with reference to our Constitution and labour laws.There is wide spread observation and concern by the national community about employment practices in the public service and in public agencies. The Ethnic Relations Commission should undertake a comprehensive human resource audit on the ethnic composition of senior persons in the public sector for the challenge to those in public life, Government, the National Assembly, and public officials to take the appropriate corrective actions and measures in the national interest. The ERC can only justify its existence with integrity by pursuing actively the recommended actions above.With thanks,Joshua Singhlast_img read more

Tottenham and England sweat on Kane injury

first_img0Shares0000Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane receives medical attention during the match against Bournemouth on March 11, 2018 © AFP / Adrian DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 12 – Tottenham and England face an anxious wait to find out the full extent of Harry Kane’s ankle injury, saying they will not know the severity of the damage until Tuesday at the earliest.The England striker, 24, was due to undergo a scan after limping off during the first half of Spurs’ 4-1 win at Bournemouth on Sunday, just three months before the start of the World Cup in Russia. Reports said that swelling around Kane’s right ankle needs to reduce before the extent of the injury can be determined.Spurs play Swansea in the FA Cup quarter-finals at the weekend while England manager Gareth Southgate will on Thursday name his squad for forthcoming friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy.Kane, who has 39 goals for club and country this season, left the stadium in Bournemouth on crutches and wearing a protective boot after sustaining the injury in the process of scoring a disallowed goal in the first half.He hobbled around the side of the pitch and appeared to be preparing to come back before disappearing down the tunnel to be replaced by Erik Lamela.Kane suffered ligament damage to the same ankle twice last season.He was sidelined for seven weeks and missed 10 Spurs games due to the initial injury, picked up against Sunderland in September 2016.However, he then returned to action within a month of sustaining a similar problem in an FA Cup tie with Millwall last March.Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, whose side are chasing a top-four finish in the Premier League, was optimistic about the latest injury setback and said Kane remained upbeat.“We hope that it’s not a massive issue,” said the Argentine coach. “He felt that when he ran and twisted his ankle that it was impossible to stay on the pitch.“Harry has a great character and is always positive, happy with the victory for the team, of course disappointed with his problem. But if you’re positive you start the recovery from injury from now.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

The good and badminton

Yet Grant’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, makes it sound like the NBA is now his client’s oyster. “We’ve heard from just about everybody in the league,” Bartelstein told the Chicago Sun-Times. “It’s going to be a tough call for Brian.” It’ll also be tough for him to figure out how he’s going to spend all that cash guilt-free. —Tom Hoffarth can be reached at or (818) 713-3661. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgBeautiful weather in Donegal brings out the best of readingAntonia Leitner from Austria enjoys some reading.Inspired by the raw beauty of coastal northwest Donegal, scribes from several different continents are bound next week for the tiny hamlet of Bun na Leaca in the Gaeltacht for Ireland’s newest international creative writing retreat.And as part of it, established authors from both Ireland and abroad in many genres – including crime, literary fiction, memoir and sci-fi fantasy – will be among those speaking at the week-long event, which lasts from June 28 until July 5th.Participants include men and women travelling from as far away as Perth and Victoria, Australia; Minneapolis and New Hampshire in the US; and from Somerset in England. The ‘Ireland Writing Retreat,’ as it is known, is organized under the catchphrase ‘Forgotten County, Remembered Words.’Those, from Donegal or farther afield, wishing to attend – there are still four places available – can do so by contacting www.irelandwritingretreat.comParticipants on the course will learn a range of key skills for writing good fiction, with many of them linked to the six basic underlying tenets of journalism – who, what, where, why, when, and how? Sentence structure, character development, plot evolution, suspense and descriptive narrative are among those skills that will be learned.Antonia Leitner from Austria honors well-known Donegal author, Mickey McGowan, at his former family home near Mageroarty beach.In addition to practical training in writing and editing for different formats, including short story, novel and memoir, participants will receive introductory Gaeilge language tuition and be taken on historical guided walking tours of the area to learn about the life of the local people and about the various Celtic legends that have been handed down through the generations. Evenings will be packed with lively music with participants learning traditional Irish ceildhe dancing as well as attending music concerts and seisúns in popular Teac Jack’s in Glassagh.“With the raw, natural landscape and dramatic history that west Donegal offers, writers – indeed artists of all kinds – cannot but be inspired, its pristine mix of lake, island, mountain and sea providing a clarity of vision second to none,” said Sean Hillen, journalist, publisher and author with more than 30 years of international writing experience, who will be one of the teachers on the course. “Pearls of beauty such as Errigal and Muckish Mountains, the Poisoned Glen, Bloody Foreland, Glenveigh National Park and Tory and Gola Islands provide prefect mood-setters for meaningful conversation, contemplation and fine writing. And for program participants to also learn some of the native language, traditions and legends is a wonderful bonus. If you want to learn to be a better writer, I guess there’s no better place to do it than on the most beautiful coastline in all Ireland.”In addition to his own writing, Sean has conducted a series of comprehensive interviews at book fairs and writing conferences worldwide with a wide range of best-selling authors in many genres including David Nicholls, Lee Child, Ian McEwan, Douglas Kennedy, Kate Moss, Daniel Wallace, R.J. Ellory and John Connolly and their insights will be passed on to participants on the writing courses.Many journalists, including some in the list above, have gone on to become successful, best-selling novelists. They include Ernest Hemingway (Sean once held the very same reporting position as Hemingway while working at The Kansas City Star Times in the mid-1980s); Lee Child, David Nicholls, George Eliot, Guy de Maupassant, Mark Twain, and Graham Green, to name but a few.Antonia Leitner, from Carinthia Austria, is volunteering her assistance on the retreat. “I moved to Dublin to study for my Masters degree in inter-cultural studies and came to the peace and tranquility of west Donegal a few weeks ago to complete my thesis,” she said. “It is a perfect place for artists of all kinds – painters, writers or sculptors.”WRITERS FROM AROUND GLOBE TO DESCEND ON DONEGAL FOR WRITING RETREAT was last modified: June 23rd, 2014 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:donegalwriter’s retreatlast_img read more
