Region 9 water taxi operators benefit from training

first_imgThe Maritime Administration Department (MARAD) recently collaborated with the Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA) and Conservation International to conduct a training programme for water taxi captains and certification programme for boat operators at Caiman House, Yupukari Village, Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo).Twenty-eight water taxi operators were awarded a Certificate of Competency to operate as river Captains under the Licensing of Ships Regulation 2001, and are now appropriately equipped to operate safely on the rivers within the region.Participants were drawn from, Yupukari, Massara, Toka, Karanambu Eco-lodge, and the Protected Areas Commission in CentralSome of the boat captains who participated in the trainingRupununi.The training is one of the initiatives undertaken by MARAD with support partners to expand the outreach where maritime services are needed, but very difficult to access financially and logistically.The GTA continues to lend support to MARAD as their standard operating procedure is to improve the safety and professional standard of river tours offered by various operators, based on Guyana’s growing nature-based tourism products, also to ensure operators are licenced to operate on the rivers.Training in this aspect was conducted previously in July 2014, in Annai where 21 river taxi operators benefitted similarly.last_img read more

Only 3 area hospitals rate ‘superior’

first_imgA statewide effort launched Tuesday to increase hospital transparency and improve patient care reported “poor” patient satisfaction at six of the nine participating area hospitals. In the Santa Clarita and San Fernando valleys and eastern Ventura County, only Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills, Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank and Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, Woodland Hills, were rated “superior” by patients in the debut of CalHospitalCompare.org. The Web site allows consumers to browse patient satisfaction at 209 California hospitals and determine which offer the best care for pneumonia, maternity and heart attack, heart failure and bypass. “Having the hospitals compared against each other helps the hospitals improve,” said Maribeth Shannon, who led the effort for the nonprofit California HealthCare Foundation. “Nobody wants to look bad on any quality-of-care measure. So having that out in the public really focuses the hospital on correcting any deficiencies.” brad.greenberg@dailynews.com (818) 713-3634 Hospital study Nine hospitals in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys and eastern Ventura County participated in the voluntary statewide study of 209 hospitals. Here are their overall patient-satisfaction ratings, out of 100. For more information and complete results, log on to www.calhospitalcompare.org: Statewide average, 79. Providence Holy Cross: Superior, 88. Providence Saint Joseph: Superior, 87. Kaiser Permanente, Woodland Hills: Superior, 84. Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center: Poor, 74.

Three years in the making, the site was funded by the foundation and the California Hospital Assessment and Reporting Taskforce, which includes hospitals, health plans, medical professionals and consumer groups. Participation was voluntary, and the database includes information on hospitals that account for about 70 percent of patient discharges. Many smaller hospitals opted out because of unavailable finances or resources, said Jan Emerson, a spokeswoman for the California Hospital Association. Los Angeles County hospitals did not participate in the first year, but will submit data later this month, spokesman Michael Wilson said. Among area hospitals, the lowest marks went to Simi Valley Hospital, which scored a 60 percent in patient satisfaction and rated poor for heart attack and heart failure care and average for pneumonia and maternity care. “We’ve had some issues,” said President and CEO Gary Irish. “This might serve as a baseline. The management team, however, I think has a good plan in place. And we would expect our scores to go up.” last_img read more

Cheney blasts Reid on Iraq War

first_imgCheney broke with his six-year practice of avoiding news conferences during his regular visits to Capitol Hill to accuse Reid of using the Iraq War to try to gain Democrats additional seats in the 2008 congressional elections. Reid later responded at the same Capitol podium that Cheney had used earlier. “The president sends out his attack dogs often – also known as Dick Cheney – and he was here again today attacking not only me, but the Democratic Caucus,” Reid said. The vice president spoke hours after President Bush invoked the memory of the Sept. 11 attacks to claim that Iraq-based al-Qaida operatives could inflict “deadly consequences on the streets of our cities” if the Democratic-led Congress enacted the legislation designed to force withdrawal of U.S. combat troops. Bush decried the actions of unnamed “Democratic leaders” 10 times in his seven minute statement at the White House before leaving on a trip to New York. WASHINGTON – With tempers flaring Tuesday on the eve of congressional action, Vice President Dick Cheney denounced the Democratic leader of the Senate for pressing for timelines to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq beginning later this year. Cheney heatedly attacked Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., the Senate majority leader, for making what Cheney called “uninformed and misleading” statements and for orchestrating Democrats’ “blind opposition” to the Bush administration’s latest policy in Iraq. Cheney also accused Reid of advocating three different policies for funding the Iraq war and of misrepresenting recommendations by the Iraq Study Group. Cheney, a hard-nosed Washington insider with experience on the White House staff in the 1970s, Congress in the 1980s and the Pentagon in the early 1990s, accused Reid of “defeatism,” adding that legislation requiring phased withdrawal of U.S. combat troops over a six-month period “would guarantee defeat.” The House is expected to adopt the measure today followed by the Senate on Thursday, setting the stage for Bush to fulfill repeated threats to veto the bill. Such a step would be the second veto of his presidency. The $124.2 billion legislation sets a nonbinding goal for an end to offensive U.S. combat operations in Iraq by next April 1, with the first withdrawals of combat forces beginning by this Oct. 1. The legislation calls for combat troop withdrawals to begin as early as July 1 if the Iraqi government fails to quell sectarian violence with political reconciliation. The White House attacks on Reid came on a day that Pentagon officials announced that back-to-back suicide truck bombings on a U.S. outpost in Diyala province northeast of Baghdad had killed nine U.S. soldiers and wounded at least 20 others in the deadliest ground attack in 16 months. An al-Qaida-linked Islamic group called the Islamic State of Iraq claimed responsibility for the attack on a unit of the 82nd Airborne Division based at Fort Bragg, N.C. The soldiers were among more than 30,000 combat and support troops ordered into Iraq by Bush on Jan. 10 to bolster efforts by 132,000 U.S. soldiers already deployed across a nation the size of California. Neither Bush, Cheney nor Reid mentioned the attack in their rhetorical sparring. Reid urged Bush to sign, rather than veto, the disputed legislation because it “transitions the U.S. mission” in Iraq from combat to training Iraqi forces, protecting American troops and conducting targeted attacks on al-Qaida forces. “The president is in a state of denial,” Reid insisted. “The war cannot be won militarily.” The U.S. invasion of Iraq in March 2003 and the subsequent four year occupation have claimed the lives of at least 3,333 U.S. soldiers, wounded at least 24,764 and cost taxpayers more than $400 billion. Meanwhile, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, a candidate for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, announced that he had submitted a resolution to the House seeking the impeachment of Cheney. Kucinich said Cheney ought to be removed from office because of his role in the Bush administration’s escalating campaign of accusations against Iran – accusations that Kucinich said recalled the road to war in Iraq in 2003. stewart@hearstdc.com (202) 263-6400 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Blackburn remain keen on Premier League defender

first_img Doneil Henry 1 Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer admits he could make another move to sign West Ham defender Doneil Henry at the end of the season following his impressive spell at Ewood Park.Henry only joined the east London club back in January but he was given the chance by Sam Allardyce to join the Championship club on loan.The Canada international helped Blackburn record three successive league victories which included a 2-1 win over Sheffied Wednesday – just three hours after he met up with his new team-mates.But Henry damaged his hamstring during the 3-1 win at Charlton and was forced to undergo surgery last weekend which has ruled him out for the rest of the season.Bowyer wants to invite Henry back for the FA Cup quarter final replay against Liverpool next month and has not ruled out the possibility of making another move for the 21-year-old during the summer.Bowyer, speaking in the Lancashire Telegraph, said: “The most important thing is Doneil has a successful operation and then continues his rehab.“But we’ll certainly stay in touch with him and then assess things in the summer. The poor lad has got a bit of work to do before then.“There are plans for him to come up to see the boys because he made such a great impression during his short spell with us and he built a real relationship with the players and the staff.“We’re looking forward to seeing him and I think we’re trying to get him up for the Liverpool match. Doneil was fantastic on his debut and he continued that form right up until he got injured. He helped us to three wins out of three so he will be a big loss to us.”last_img read more

Napoli want former Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina to stay amid Newcastle interest

first_img Pepe Reina 1 Italian giants Napoli are pulling out all the stops to try and convince goalkeeper Pepe Reina to stay at the club, amid interest from Newcastle.The 34-year-old is currently considering a return to the Premier League, after his nine-year stay at Liverpool was brought to an end three years ago.And there have been suggestions that Reina is ready to reunite with former manager Rafael Benitez at newly-promoted Newcastle.The former Spain international is still considered an integral part of the Napoli set up, having made 49 appearances in all competitions for them last season.While his future remains uncertain, the Italian side are set to offer Reina an improved two-year deal worth just over £2m per season, according to II Mattino.Benitez is keen to bolster his ranks ahead of Newcastle’s Premier League return and his strong relationship with Reina could prove pivotal in deciding his next step.last_img read more

HIV PROSTITUTE WORKED IN OTHER TOWNS ACROSS IRELAND

first_imgGardai believe a male prostitute infected with the HIV virus was operating in a number of towns across Ireland over the past two months.Brazilian sex worker Jose Filho, 44, was caught by Gardai at a brothel in Letterkenny last Monday.Mr Filho told Gardai he had arrived in Ireland in August and had been working in different towns across the country over the past ten weeks. Sources have confirmed that Filho has worked in Galway, Athlone, Cavan, Sligo, Castlebar and Tipperary.Mr Filho, who had no English, had been moved around by his Dublin-based pimps and was being charged €250 rent for staying in various brothels.A leading Garda this week appealed to anyone who had received sexual services from Mr Filho in Donegal to go and receive medical attention.Gardai raided the brothel in which Filho was operating on Monday and he answered the door wearing women’s underwear, a blonde wig ad wearing make-up.A man on the premises at Ballymacool Terrace had just had sex with Filho and was questioned by Gardai before being released.Residents at the terraced row of houses said they had observed and taken the registration numbers of up to 60 cars visiting the brothel each week.They said many were married men from the locality and the busiest time for the brothel was between 1pm and 2pm.Superintendent Vincent O’Brien, of Letterkenny Garda station, said“I am making an urgent appeal to any members of the public who have used the services of prostitutes to seek urgent medical advice.“This follows the confirmation that one prostitute who has been operating in Letterkenny is HIV positive,” he said.Filho was ordered to keep the peace by Judge Paul Kelly and released from custody.He told a special sitting of Glenties District Court that he has a return ticket to Brazil on November 27th next.HIV PROSTITUTE WORKED IN OTHER TOWNS ACROSS IRELAND was last modified: October 27th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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 DailyHIV PROSTITUTE WORKED IN OTHER TOWNS ACROSS IRELANDletterkennylast_img read more
