The toss was won by the Lewas who sent the Dutch in to bat first.A target of 105 was set for victory thanks largely to Sterre Kalis’ unbeaten knock of 33 runs.The Dutch batted out the full 20 overs losing only four wickets.Wickets for the Lewas went to Kaia Arua (1/4), Norma Ovasuru (1/15) and Ravina Oa (1/17).The Dutch were right on top after a top order batting collapse left the Lewas reeling at 4/17 after only 4.5 overs.But Pauke Siaka (34) and Sibona Jimmy (21) led the fightback to put the Lewas back in contention.But their dismissals brought back hope for the Dutch who surged on to take more wickets.The run chase went right down to the wire with the Lewas at 9/79 with 9 balls remaining.It was all in the hands of tail enders Brenda Tau and Kari Seura to pull off the seemingly impossible.With one wicket in hand, one ball remaining and one run to win, Seura smashed the winning run off the bowling of Esther de Lange to win the match.The Lewas will now play the winner of the second Shield semi-final between China and Thailand.
Dear Editor,The ‘No-Confidence’ motion filed against the APNU/AFC Coalition Government is timely and opportune, since corruption and mismanagement of public funds are at its zenith. The entire economy is in a downward spiral, crimes are on the increase, jailbreaks have now become the norm, and the entire social fabric is disintegrating.It must be noted that unlike the motion brought by the Leader of the Opposition Dr Jagdeo, the ‘no-confidence’ motion brought against the Ramotar Administration in August 2014, was contrived solely to wrest power by deliberately creating the ‘reasons’. That motion, presented by Moses Nagamootoo read, ‘BE IT RESOLVED: That this National Assembly has no confidence in the Government’.The ‘no-confidence’ motion was to protest the spending of some $22.5 million without parliamentary approval, on items ranging from school stipends to an airport expansion project. This ‘scissoring’ of the budget was initiated by Moses Nagamootoo, the same person who piloted the ‘no-confidence’ motion in Parliament! That $22.5 billion was the restoration of monies cut from the budget for the Amerindian Development Fund (ADF), hinterland airports, the University of Guyana student loan programme, vouchers for public school students, and the One Laptop for Family Project.The second reason, was the non-transfer of monies to the Consolidated Fund, which was held, legally, by semi-autonomous agencies, and the third reason, was a procedural breach in the $4 billion transferred to the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo), and allegations of corruption. However, the Opposition Leader has maintained that, ‘They have not proven any of these issues so far.’We have now seen that these allegations of procedural breaches are nothing when compared to what is happening under the Coalition Government. It must be recalled that the budget cuts during Ramotar’s Administration were meant to frustrate the functioning of the Ramotar Administration, to stymie social and economic development and to oust the PPP/C from power. The Budget was cut in 2014 by $37.4 billion, 2013 by $31 billion and 2012 by $21 billion. Those cuts were unconscionable and illegal to say the least! They were never proven to be illegal! Acting Chief Justice Ian Chang ruled that the National Assembly has no right to cut the National Budget, and the National Assembly has a role to either approve or disapprove the National Estimates, not to reduce them. Yet they were used as reasons to bring down a democratically elected Government. Compare this with the intent and purpose of the PPP/C’s ‘no-confidence’ motion.We have seen, that until now, the US$18 million signing bonus which was the subject of many deceptive statements from the Finance Minister and his government, is yet to be included in the Consolidated Account. The D’urban Park Project, in which over $1.3 billion was spent, is yet to be fully accounted for; the many breaches of the Procurement Act ($605 million sole-sourcing of drugs at the GHPC and the $148 million Demerara Harbour Bridge feasibility study, etc); taxpayers losing more than $1 billion in 2017 due to overpayments to contractors; payments for goods without vouchers, and payments for goods that were not delivered; unaccountability of more than $1 billion spent by the Amerindian Ministry; the numerous cases of poor accountability highlighted in the Auditor General’s report 2017; the loss of more than 30,000 jobs; the devastation of the sugar sector and the impoverishment of the dismissed workers, and the negative ripple effects; the exorbitant increases in over 200 taxes, placing an additional $60 billion tax burden on the people and businesses; reckless and wasteful borrowing(over 200 billion); spiraling corruption at all levels of Government; decreasing budgetary allocations vital for agriculture and infrastructural developments; massive increases in various criminal activities including frequent jail breaks and increasing police brutality. How can there be any confidence when our treasury is being raided on a daily basis and we, the taxpayers, continue to receive less but are demanded to pay more.The people have spoken at the Local Government Elections (LGE) as is evidenced both by those who voted and those who abstained. The APNU and the AFC must not be fooled that the reason for the poor turnout at the Local Government Election (LGE) was because voter-education was lacking. Those who stayed at home did that intentionally. The voters’ apathy displayed was a result of the high cost of living, retrogressing living standards and lack of public security. These persons would willingly take part in a General Election to change the obstacles to the ‘good life’ sooner than 2020. On the other hand, those who have voted sent a stronger and graphic message to the APNU and the AFC that ‘enough is enough’ and it’s time to go!The masses have lost confidence! Therefore, the ‘no-confidence’ is definitely most opportune.Yours sincerely,Haseef Yusuf

Scottish football clubs paid over £1.6m in fees to agents across the last two transfer windows.The payments were made to intermediaries working on behalf of players and clubs between April 2015 and February 2016.Representing a player in a transfer was a marginally more lucrative pursuit, with £887,378 paid out as a result of deals.Agents working on behalf of clubs in transfer moves pocketed £735,740, taking the total spend to £1,623,118 excluding VAT. A total of 165 payments were made to agents representing players across the period.Celtic paid out the most to club intermediaries – £327,750 – with Rangers spending £140,114. No figures are available for how much each team paid out to player agents.Aberdeen, Dundee, Dundee United, Dunfermline Athletic, Hearts, Hibernian, Inverness CT, Motherwell, Partick Thistle, Ross County and St Johnstone also made payments to agents working on their behalf.The English Football League published comparative figures for the period from October 2014 to November 2015. Championship clubs paid £26,124,044 to agents across that time. Nottingham Forest paid out the most, shelling out £1,440,730.League One sides paid £3,167,964 to agents, while teams in League Two paid a combined £1,007,920.Clubs in the English Premier League spent £129,857,560 on agent fees over the same period.Inverness CT boss John Hughes spoke out against the influence of agents this week, as he faces up to the prospect of losing Liam Polworth, having already seen James Vincent and Danny Williams sign pre-contract deals with Premiership rivals Dundee.“See when these agents, who have never kicked a ball, get involved? I can’t believe it,” he told STV. “Footballers can’t make their own mind up or know what’s best for them?“They should take their counsel from people who are close to them, not just agents they hear from once a year when it comes to contracts.”
Did you ever work in the Donegal Oil Company and longed to meet up with former colleagues?Well, the good news is that the company are now holding a reunion. The idea was sparked when a few former colleagues met up informally for a night out.Former employee Mary Diver takes up the story.“Well two weeks have passed since I met up with a few ex-colleagues from Donegal Oil, we reminisced about our time working there. I had planned to stay for an hour or two needless to say I arrived home 2am.“We chatted and laughed about our working life in Donegal Oil, there were good days and a few less good days, we worked hard and played hard on the staff outings and many nights out. (I have some photographic evidence!!) “Some even met their lifetime partners while working there. We remembered fondly colleagues who have since passed away. I think we all agreed to have worked there certainly gave us good training and foundation for those of us to moved to new jobs.”Mary has now agreed to organise a reunion of ex-staff from Donegal Oil.Mary says this is anyone who happens to remember the famous Shell Pectin sign!She adds “I worked in the office from 1986 till 2001 and If I sent any of you to the hardware shops nearby for long corner stands during your first days working in the office ah I’m sorry!“So if you, your mother, father, sister, brother, granny or granda or anyone you know has worked in Donegal Oil in the past would like to meet up for a catch up please send me a message so we can gauge the interest out there.“If you have any photos we’d love to borrow them to copy and promise we’ll return them to you.So you wish to attend save this date Saturday 2nd Mar 2019 – venue Silver Tassie Hotel, Ramelton Road, Letterkenny 3 Course Dinner €25 must be paid in advance.” For further information please contact Mary on 086 417 1932, Martina 086 621 9255 or Louise 087 691 2040 know.SOS issued to all former Donegal Oil Company workers for reunion was last modified: November 29th, 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:Donegal OilletterkennyREUNION

Likewise, there’s probably some melancholy toasts due at Squidoo headquarters. Those companies may or may not survive but the real battle will probably be with Wikipedia. Google-built pages may be the only pages that have a bigger advantage in search than the widely linked Wikipedia reference pages.Update: I talked to Ward Cunningham, inventor of the wiki and on the Wikipedia board of advisers, today about Knols vs. Wikipedia. Here’s what he had to say: “It’s trying to set up an economy of writing and the web is a great place to try to experiment with different economies. Wikipedia has already succeeded with one, and these are two different styles. If Google intentionally diverts people from Wikipedia they would be doing a disservice to their readers. Most likely readers will have to chose between the two and Wikipedia already has a very successful brand.” That seems like an overly optimistic assessment of the situation to me, but Cunningham certainly could be right. (Disclosure: Ward is also the CTO at Aboutus.org, one of my personal consulting clients.) Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… The official Google blog has a post tonight about a new project that’s in closed, private beta.The program is called Knols, or “units of knowledge.” Knols participants will write reference pages on any topic, using a Google content creation tool apparently in the works, and those pages will be highlighted in Google search results. Authors will choose whether they want ads to appear and will receive a “substantial revenue share.”I think this is going to be a game changer. Check out this sample page below.
