Quick action averts fire at Public Health Ministry

first_imgFirefights on Saturday morning rushed to the Public Health Ministry’s (MoPH’s) compound in Upper Brickdam, Georgetown after a fan in an outdoor washroom of a building in that compound overheated and burst into flames at about 06:00h.Information reaching Guyana Times suggest that a driver had gone into the MoPH compound to collect a vehicle when he noticed smoke emanating from the bathroom area. With the assistance of a security guard, he opened the washroom and doused the flames with water. The Fire Service was immediately summoned.Fire Prevention Officer Andrew Holder said the Fire Service reached the building quickly, and after examining the area, they discovered that a ventilation fan which had been left on overnight was the cause of the fire.“Involved was an extractor fan. Apparently the fan was left with the switch on throughout the night, and sometime this morning (Saturday morning) the fan overheated. A breakdown in the wiring occurred, and that installation was eventually burnt and (fire) caught on to the ceiling, which was PVC,” Holder explained.Holder said no serious damage occurred, except to the ventilation fan. Nevertheless, the investigation is ongoing.On November 4, 2009, a fire set by arsonists gutted the Health Ministry Complex on Brickdam and destroyed the entire building.Arsonist Colin Jones was charged with the burning of the ministry and was found guilty.Jones, with alleged accomplices Randy Mars, Basil Morgan, Anthony Watson and Jahfar Simpson, were jointly accused of the November 2009 arson.Jones, according to Police reports, was a member of a heavily-armed ‘terrorist’ gang that in November 2009 carried out a series of shock attacks that left one person dead and two Policemen nursing gunshot wounds.That gang of men had opened fire on the Brickdam Police Station, and had attempted to burn down the Georgetown Supreme Court and the Richard Ishmael Secondary School.As a result of that November 2009 fire, more than 200 persons were dislocated, and the entire ministry was destroyed.last_img read more

Robbie Sidhu – Sidhu has 1 goal and 3 assists in the last 2 games. Both blow out losses. Hardest working Husky last night. Who’s Not?The defence. Banged up, depleted and letting in a tonne of goals. 27 in the last 3 games to be exact. Not much else needs to be said.***********************Advertisement Who’s Hot?:F.

Signing them up to a soccer camp may be your idea of fun, but it is it theirs? Find out what they would like to do for a week. Is there a class they would have liked to do during the year and could maybe use a camp to try it out?

Ask to see a timetable of what the kids will be doing each day and make sure they aren’t left to their own devices.Find out what age groups are put together and make sure these groupings are suitable for your childAre the children supervised during break times and until they are collected , even if a parent is late?Does the camp promote an inclusive policy were all children are treated equally?Once you are satisfied with the answers you have got, then it is time to focus on the FUN of summer camp.

first_imgBUNCRANA CLG NOTES (26.06.2016)Féile Hurling Report It was that time of year again for the Buncrana hurlers, Féile time. The bags were packed the grips were tightened and their new Féile gear was presented, so we were ready for our trip to TIPP. We decided to make the long trip on the Thursday so as the lads would be well rested for our 1st game on Friday against a local Tipperary side Clonoulty/ RossmoreGame 1 Vs Clonoulty/Rossmore, TipperaryDespite the planning and preparation the lads were not themselves and were very sluggish. Clonoulty/Rossmore wanted to make a mark on their home pitch in front of their home support and was very much up for the game, and while the lads battled throughout. The final score was 5-3 to0-3 to Clonoulty/RossmoreGame 2 Vs Dour Roads Roscommon After a disappointment of the 1st game the lads 1st competitive defeat of the year the lads were determined to get back to winning ways. However, despite their determination, Four Roads Roscommon also saw this chance to get a win after their 1st game lost. The game ebbed and flowed and finally the Buncrana boys got their noses in front and were not for the stress level amongst the parents and support the boys. The boys held on for the win with the final score 3-1 to 2-3 to BuncranaGame 3 Vs Templederry/Ballinahinch, TipperaryAfter a “good night’s sleep” our next match was with our host Templederry/Ballinahinch from Tipperary. The hosts were a very good side with a few exceptional players down the middle of the team. The BUncrana boys wanted to put up a good performance, and indeed they never gave up, but out host were very clinical around our goal and took their chances when they came. The final score was 2-11 to 0-2 to Templederry/Balinahinch. This now meant that our hosts had won the group and were heading to play a cup quarter final while Buncrana were of to a shield quarter finalGame 4 Quarter Finals Vs O’Neills Crotta, KerryThe quarter Final paired probably the furthest clubs in the competition, Buncrana ,Donegal and O’Neills Crotta, Kerry, Which why the Féile is such a special competition. Buncrana now were in no mood to lose this match while they may have lost to better teams that morning. They had started to get their game going while the game was exciting. Buncrana were always in control and finished with the victory they deserved. The final score was 2-6 to 1-3 to Buncrana this meant Buncrana was through to the Semi FinalsGame 5 Semi-Finals Vs Sallins of Kildare We now had another trip to South Tipperary on the Waterford border to play Sallins Of Kildare we all felt for the boys as the last match finished at 3pm while their Semi-Finals won’t start until 6.45pm which was a long down time to get sorted for their next game. This again was going to a close game and Buncrana took a good lead, However just on half time Sallins drew level. This seemed to inspire Sallins as they then added 2 quick goals to take a 6 point lead. Again Buncrana were not going to go down without a fight and battled to the end but just as they were getting on top the final whistle blew and we’d ran out of time. Final score was 3-4 to 3-1 to SallinsThe Buncrana team gave their all and represented Buncrana and Donegal with great pride.The management of Tommy O’Neill, John O’Doherty and Francis Craig must be given great praise for looking after the boys all year.

Ind vs Eng 2nd Test: Vaseline stirs up controversy

first_imgIt was jelly beans four years ago and it is vaseline this time as a controversy erupted in the second India-England Test when VVS Laxman was accused of using it on his bat to manipulate the Hot-Spot technology in the Decision Review System.”Has Vaseline on the outside edge saved the day for Laxman?” tweeted former England captain Michael Vaughan after Laxman was ruled not out by third umpire after the Decision Review System (DRS) was pressed into action by England in the first session of play.The Indian batsman was on 27, in the total 48/1, when the last delivery of James Anderson’s ninth over passed his bat. The bowler and the rest of England players promptly went up in appeal for a catch behind the stumps and began gathering around the batsman.As umpire Asad Rauf ruled in Laxman’s favour, England skipper Andrew Strauss went for DRS but that too didn’t favour the home side.Kevin Pietersen and Laxman were seen getting into a bit of an argument and later Stuart Broad told media persons his side was convinced it was a nick.”Players feel Hot-Spot sometimes doesn’t show faint edges. It’s a bit of a flaw,” stated Broad.But what kept the controversy lingering was the Vaughan tweet which virtually accused Laxman of wrong-doing since vaseline or any liquid on the bat don’t show up on the Hot-Spot technology.Broad actually went ahead and checked Laxman’s bat if there was any vaseline or liquid applied to it.”I had a cheeky feel of the edge of his bat as the ball went past him. There was no vaseline, no liquid there. It’s just that Hot-Spot is not showing very faint edges,” he said.advertisementIt is the second time vaseline has quite infamously figured in Test matches between the two countries who recently celebrated the 100th Test between them at Lord’s last week.When England toured India for the 1976-77 series, England’s left-arm fast bowler John Lever was accused by Indian skipper Bishan Singh Bedi of using vaseline to gain undue swing with his bowling during the Delhi Test and end up with 7/46 and 3/24 in his debut Test.Tests between the two at Trent Bridge too are known to stir up the pot.In 2007, the infamous jellybeans incident happened which was intended to show to the incoming batsman Zaheer Khan that he was faint-hearted.Sreesanth too was full of antics and misdemeanour in that Test – he once bowled a beamer at Kevin Pietersen; came around the wicket and bowled from practically 19 yards at Paul Collingwood and then shoulder barged the then England captain Vaughan for which he was fined 50 percent of his match fee.- With PTI inputslast_img read more
