Resilient sugar workers among 22 graduates

first_imgOil & gas safety trainingIn spite of the economic challenges that thousands of sugar workers have faced across the industry, some are trying to attain alternative skills to secure their livelihood. These sentiments were expressed Monday by three former employees of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo), who were among 22 men who successfully completed the inaugural oilfield safety and operator training and development course.From left: Leowood Paul, top performer Mark Bihkhari, Vishwapremi Ramkellawan, and Duvendr LallaA graduation ceremony was held at Houston, East Bank Demerara (EBD), where Mark Bihkhari, Dexter Vangronigen and Courtney John respectively received top honours for their outstanding performance. The nine-week course was facilitated by international marine and petroleum training academy TotalTec Oilfield Services.All graduates were praised for their relative quick grasp of the concepts and practical aspects of programme. However, the spotlight was on the three former sugar industry employees, who showcased much resilience having to adopt a completely new career path in the wake of the downsizing of the sugar industry.Former La Bonne Intention (LBI) fitter machinist Vishwapremi Ramkellawan told the media that he was severely affected by the closure of his workplace after seven years of employment. The father of two noted that despite some challenges, he used the skills he knew as a basis for his development.“I went to GuySuCo training school and [this] made it a lot easier comparing to the others that didn’t have GuySuCo training. I left and go into the mining industry, because I’ve seen the decline in GuySuCo and now I’ve made the transition from mining straight into the oil and gas industry,” he stressed.“I have two children and a wife and [closure] affected us a great deal but as a man, you have to stand up and go and get what you have to get for your family to survive and that’s why exactly I did,” Ramkellawan said.Duvendr Lalla, who said that he was hopeful to start his family, was a 15-year veteran in the mechanical department in the sugar industry. Noting that he found out about the training in the press, he jumped at the challenge and even encouraged some unemployed colleagues to apply. He said too that his training at the Port Mourant Centre was an asset in his oil and gas training. Observing that he received half of his severance pay, Lalla told Guyana Times that he was saddened over the fact that he dedicated his life to the sugar industry.“From school [I went] straight into sugar – my whole work-life experience is from GuySuCo and it is sad to know that it has come to an end, but hopefully one door close, a better one open and you just have to take it step by step from there and hopefully I’ll develop my skills in oil and gas,” he expressed.Lalla hopes that he would be one of the graduates selected for further training in the oil and gas sector in Trinidad and Tobago and the United States.His younger colleague, Leowood Paul, who had worked three years attached to the field lab, said too that the training was “a great experience to be part of something new”. The programme comprised 56 separate theory and practical base modules that focused on areas including emergency response, oil and gas preparation and platforms, and counterbalance forklift truck operations.TotalTec Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Lars Mangal said as Guyana prepared itself for oil production in 2020, Guyanese need to be trained in the basics of the industry so that locals could be able to access jobs both onshore and offshore.Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman praised Mangal for returning to his homeland to impart his oil and gas skills to others. Organisers announced that a batch of 50 more recruits was currently being trained and expressed hope that future batches would include female participants.Earlier this month, the International Union of Food, Agricultural, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering, Tobacco and Allied Workers’ Associations (IUF), an international trade union confederation, through its General Secretary Sue Longley, wrote President David Granger expressing strong concerns over the downsizing of sugar. In its letter to President Granger, the IUF, which speaks on behalf of 10 million workers through its 422 affiliated unions in 131 countries, said it was aware that the sugar industry “…has made substantial contributions to your country’s national life and development … Its role as a national institution cannot be diminished, especially recognising the absence of alternatives at this time”. In its end-of-year statement, the Private Sector Commission (PSC) highlighted that come 2018, there would, in fact, have been 5000 sugar workers who would be left unemployed if Wales was factored into the current numbers.last_img read more

Leicester City’s Claudio Ranieri hopes Foxes can take momentum into 2016

first_imgLeicester City will go into the new year level on points with table-toppers Arsenal after drawing with Manchester City. It finished goalless at the King Power in Tuesday’s top-of-the-table clash and the point puts Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes behind the Gunners on just goal difference. Leicester lost their 10-game unbeaten record with a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool on Boxing Day, leaving some observers to wonder if their challenge at the top was about to falter.But Claudio Ranieri’s team silenced their critics with another superb performance as they more than held their own against Pellegrini’s men.Ranieri said: “I think we made a very good match. It was difficult but we played well, we created some chances.“I wanted to see how my players responded after the Liverpool defeat and they responded well.“This league is very crazy. I think the big teams have to stay at a high level, but sometimes it means nobody wants to win the league – it’s very strange this league.“It’s not easy for us but we want to fight with everybody. It’s a miracle what we’re doing.“I’d love this to continue but it’s not easy. I’d like my players to continue to fight like today. It’s fantastic.“I can only say well done to our players and our fans are unbelievable, they support us and they push us.”last_img read more

Residents say appraisers on project too aggressive

first_img“They all acknowledged they are professional people,” he said, “and they have not done that. But we still made it clear to them that under no circumstances may (they) go on anyone’s property without their consent.” Patrick Kellogg, a senior appraiser with Integra Realty Resources, said he personally supervised all the visits his staffers made to Baldwin Park homes. “There are cases when we entered the property to see if a property owner was there,” he said. “If they had an objection for us being on the property, they had the ability to stop us from being there.” Residents said city officials are ignoring their grievances. “The city doesn’t believe us,” Sembello said. “They don’t care about us. They have their own agenda.” City officials are rushing the project before two pending 2008 state ballot initiatives limiting eminent domain are voted on, according to James Treasure, co-president of the Baldwin Park Business Association, which was formed in opposition to the project. If passed, The Homeowners Protection Act would restrict city agencies from taking residential property through eminent domain and turning it over to private developers, said Kathy Fairbanks, a spokeswoman for Eminent Domain Reform Now, a California advocacy group. The California Property Owners and Farmland Protection Act would do the same, except for commercial and residential properties, said Douglas Johnson, a fellow with the Rose Institute of State and Local Government. Neither would restrict eminent domain seizures for public projects, like roadways, he said. “If you have a blighted, rundown neighborhood, the city can come in and clean it up, but many cities have gone way too far in an effort to gain more (sales tax) revenue,” Johnson said. “These measures are a blow back for those cities that have gone too far.” Treasure – and other residents and business owners who would be affected by the project – claim the city is being “hush and hush” because of those initiatives. “We have not been properly informed,” he said, adding that officials are using back-door techniques to get the project approved. Treasure referred to a January letter from Bisno to Singhal that urges the city to move quickly on the project. “That letter was part of an open session discussion with the council,” Singhal said. “We did not try to hide this.” Mayor Manuel Lozano accused opponents of the project of misinforming residents and scaring them about the what the project would mean. “We don’t even know if this project is even going to occur or not,” he said. “Nothing is set is stone.” tania.chatila@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2109160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The process wrapped up last week and city officials expect to send out offer letters soon. Chief Executive Officer Vijay Singhal said city officials did hear concerns from residents about forceful appraisers and met with representatives from all the firms. BALDWIN PARK – Residents living within the boundaries of a proposed downtown project say city officials are ignoring their accusations that appraisers have been too pushy. The City Council is considering a multimillion-dollar renovation of 125 acres along Maine Avenue and Ramona Boulevard. Bisno Development representatives – who are in an exclusive negotiation with city officials – are working on plans for 8,000 residential units, 3 million square feet of commercial space, 750,000 square feet of retail and entertainment space, a 300-room hotel and a 1,000-student charter school. City officials recently began appraising the 81 residential homes within the project area. last_img read more

Chelsea eye big-money move for Barcelona ace, but face competition from Arsenal

first_img1 Arda Turan had to wait until January to make his debut for Barca Chelsea are planning to flex their financial muscles by bidding for Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan, claim reports in Spain.Turan only signed for the Catalans from Atletico Madrid last summer but was forced to wait until January to make his debut due to the club’s transfer ban. He has since made 20 appearances, scoring twice.His late availability made it difficult for the Turkish international to displace either Sergio Busquets or Ivan Rakitic at the heart of Barca’s midfield.Arsenal have been linked with a summer swoop for Turan in recent weeks but now, according to Sport, Chelsea are also keen on the 29-year-old and are prepared to enter a bidding war with their London rivals.The Blaugrana are thought to be reluctant to sell Turan so soon after landing him and want to give him a full season to try and force his way into the starting team before making any decision on his future.However, Turan is understood to be wary of the prospect of another season sitting on the bench and is eager to listen to offers from other clubs this summer.last_img read more

Extradition of shooting suspect still in works

Garcia’s “situation depends on the United States presenting all the necessary requirements to solicit a formal extradition, in accordance with the bilateral treaty that exists in this case,” according to a statement released by Mexican authorities this week. Garcia was captured in February in a small town outside Guadalajara. March, 33, of Saugus was gunned down April 29, 2002, as he approached a car on an Irwindale street. Garcia, an undocumented worker who had been deported four times and was wanted on suspicion of attempted murder, was identified as the prime suspect in the death of the seven-year law enforcement veteran. susan.abram@dailynews.com (818) 713-3664160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Extradition documents for the man accused of killing Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy David March should be sent to Mexican authorities this month, but the suspect will probably not be brought to California before the end of the year. Jorge Arroyo Garcia, 29, is being held in Mexico City, officials with the Attorney General’s Office there said. They are awaiting final word from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. “It’s getting close to the time when we have to file,” said district attorney spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons. “If he doesn’t appeal, we may get him within this year.” District Attorney Steve Cooley has said he will seek a sentence of life in prison without the possibility parole for Garcia, rather than the death penalty. In the past, Mexican authorities have refused to extradite fugitives facing the death penalty in the United States. last_img read more
