Students Commend Sime Darby

first_imgThe Liberian operations of Malaysian oil palm giant, Sime Darby Plantation Liberia (SDPL), has been commended for offering ‘hardship allowance’ to beneficiaries of its scholarship studying agriculture-related disciplines at major universities in Liberia.A number of students benefiting from the company’s US$135-monthly hardship stipend say the offer would not have come at any better time. Sime Darby Liberia launched the hardship allowance scheme during the height of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in the country few months ago to help the students earn their living during the Ebola crisis. The scheme is an augmentation of existing monthly US$45 scholarship allowance for each of the beneficiaries. About 51 students at various tertiary institutions in the country are benefiting from the Sime Darby’s scholarship program and their benefit under the hardship allowance scheme has now been increased to US$135 per month. Beneficiaries spoken with said the gesture by Sime Darby Plantation Liberia (SDPL) during this Ebola outbreak is far from just a corporate social responsibility of the company. “It is a great sense of humanity that any company would consider,” one of the beneficiaries said in a recent interview.They believe that the company could have stopped the scholarship allowance scheme since all schools including universities and colleges have been close because of the Ebola outbreak. “But, Sime Darby Foundation decided to go extra miles to ensure our survivability,” said Miss Hannah Karnwhiene. Miss Karnwhiene is studying agriculture at the Stella Maris Polytechnic in Monrovia.The Sime Darby Foundation had always given beneficiaries of its scholarship in Liberia monthly allowances of US$45 to US$135 per month, but the Company decided to step up the amount for all 51 students to US$135 per month after Ebola struck the country, leaving schools closed. And with economic activities taking a nosedive, the Malaysian Company decided to come to the rescue of its students.“For me, what the company is doing is more than a help. There is no active work going on at the plantation due to the Ebola outbreak, yet the Company is paying us and they have even increased the amount.  I am just grateful for such assistance,” said Miss Karnwhiene.Many Liberian girls have the tendency of shying away from entering into the field of agriculture due to what they call difficulties in obtaining jobs after graduation.According to Sime Darby Liberia Management, the ‘hardship allowance’ will last until the Ebola is finally eradicated from Liberia and normalcy returns to the country. Sime Darby Management has also declared that the hardship allowance will continue until the economy is lifted from recession. “Once normalcy returns and the students are back in school, the company would revert to its old US$45 per student payment scheme which it started,” said an SDPL official.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Unscrutinised H2H Registration will leave thousands off new list – Jagdeo

first_imgA team of enumerators carrying out the house to house registration exerciseWith thousands of people taking a decision to boycott the exercise and with lack of oversight for the enumerators, House to House Registration will not produce a clean list. This is according to Opposition leader Bharrat Jagdeo.Jagdeo was at the time speaking during his weekly press conference at his Church Street office on Wednesday. According to the former President, this process may in fact produce the opposite of what it is supposed to achieve.“The PPP made a decision not to participate, not to be complicit in an illegality. It is illegal, for the way it is being conducted. Any list created on the basis of this house to house, would have no credibility. Because people are refusing to be registered. The registration of people is being done in a manner not scrutinized.”“So they could put in 10 people. They just need to get one enumerator… and you have a whole group of people working a propaganda machine on the government side, that there are 200,000 people who should not be on the list. They didn’t discover this until after the No confidence motion. (Chief Elections Officer Keith) Lowenfield has made it clear that is not true, that’s speculative.”Jagdeo pointed out that while the Official List of Electors has expired, the National Registrar of Registrants has not. In addition, Jagdeo noted that based on GECOM’s timeline for the exercise elections would be pushed back until next year the earliest.AttacksChief Elections Officer Keith Lowenfield had revealed recently that enumerators have been met by non-cooperation from some citizens. Reports have ranged from staff being told they will not be paid, to some citizens employing dogs on the hapless GECOM workers.In the wake of these reports, Jagdeo also issued a plea for such persons to desist. He urged citizens to act responsibly and not to resort to such measures, but to treat enumerators with respect.“I want to urge Guyanese not to target the enumerators. They are doing a job, a lot of them are professionals. But people see them as being complicit in this illegality. They are doing this for pay. You can treat them politely and say, I’m not registering.”“Because these are Guyanese people who are trying to earn a living too. So we shouldn’t disparage them. In fact, I suggest they should suspend the activity and give the enumerators a month or two salaries for their work and their training. But suspend the activity.”GECOM is currently undertaking house to house registration, which was last conducted in 2008 and will see enumerators going in teams of two to three, from door to door in various communities across Guyana. The enumerators will present forms to registrants to fill up, as well as take fingerprints and pictures.It is understood that these enumerators work from 15:30 hrs to 18:30 hrs during the week and from 9:00hrs to 16:00hrs on weekends and holidays. The exercise is intended to produce a new National Register of Registrants Database and Official List of Electors.This means that everyone, regardless of whether they were registered before or not, must register anew at their place of residence between July 20 and October of this year. However, a no confidence motion was passed against the government since December 21 of last year, necessitating elections in three months.In addition, the requirement for proof of residency has produced alarm for overseas based Guyanese, to the point where a court case was filed earlier this year by an overseas based Guyanese against house to house registration, on the basis that it would disenfranchise her. That case was later withdrawn out of the belief that GECOM would adhere to the recent Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) rulings which reiterated the need for elections in three months.Currently, attorney and social commentator Christopher Ram has a case before the High Court in which he is seeking an injunction against the exercise. That case comes up for hearing on Friday before acting Chief Justice Roxanne George.last_img read more

DD Fitness: The Skinny Fat Phenomenon

first_imgThis article is aimed at men. We live in an age where everything is computerised. You name it; you can do it online.The trouble with this is that the majority of our lives are being spent in front of a computer.As men, we sit too much, drink too much coffee, stress too much, don’t sleep enough, have pretty awful diets and don’t exercise enough. Once upon a time, when food was food and there were no computers or video games, people used to go outside.You heard that right, OUTSIDE.You know that place where you go to get into the car, so you can drive to the gym and walk on a treadmill, or spin on a bike.You can spend time out there and do stuff, other than walking to your car. What is the result of the last few years of prosperity and technology? We have a generation of men who are skinny fat!This new body type is probably the unhealthiest that we as men are facing.Skinny fat looks like this:The extremities (arms and legs) are completely normal looking. In some cases they are actually thin, whereas the trunk of the body is carrying quite a bit of excess body-fat.When you are wearing jeans and a t-shirt you will look relatively normal. It won’t look as if there is a problem. However, when you remove the t-shirt it will look as if you have “moobs”, belly fat and probably a muffin top.This might seem a bit extreme, but when you look at the health and hormonal issues that are being studied regarding this issue, this is no laughing matter.A study in Journal of the American Medical Association found that; If you are skinny fat and get diagnosed with diabetes, you are twice as likely to die as if you are overweight and get diagnosed.You simply do not have the muscle mass that an overweight person has to protect you. Testosterone levels in skinny fat men were also found to be extremely low, with oestrogen levels being overly high.A simple test for you to know if you are low on testosterone: when you wake up in the morning, are you flaccid?If you are in your twenties and you consistently wake up like this, something is not right.Stress levels are also extremely important in the issue of skinny fat.Most people these days have stressful jobs, stressful commutes to work, and stressful lives outside of work.They survive on coffee and energy drinks, are always on their phone or computers, never get into full deep sleep, which leaves nearly every situation they face feeling stressful.Stress can affect your body’s ability to burn fat.So, let’s round this up;If you recognize yourself in this description, you probably have moobs, belly fat and a muffin top, the testosterone levels of a 16 year old girl and the stress levels of a mortgage broker when the 2008 crash happened.So what do we do?How do we fix this problem and get men back to looking like MEN?There are a few things you can do.1. HAVE PATIENCEDo not go looking for a quick fix to this problem.You will be looking to build muscle while burning off fat.For a beginner, this IS possible.Just don’t think that you will do an 8 or 12 week ‘Transformation’ and you will have the body of a Greek God after, because you won’t.2. Put yourself in a slight calorie Deficit.This should be relatively small.You may see some weight loss every few weeks, but that isn’t and shouldn’t be the goal here.The idea is to be able to build some muscle while losing some belly fat.Going too extreme on either one won’t get the desired results.Tips for this are;>Stop eating pre-packaged and processed foods and reduce your consumption of junk food.>Reduce your consumption of sugary drinks and alcohol.>Eat protein at every meal.>Increase your intake of healthy fats.>Take a multi vitamin, quality fish oil and a vitamin D supplement.3. START WEIGHT TRAINING.Start lifting weights and concentrate the bigger lifts like the squat, chin ups/lat pull down, deadlifts, bench press and overhead press as they work more muscle groups at a time and will help to also build some strength along with the much-needed muscle mass.Aim for reps of between 6-12 reps and 3-6 sets per exercise.You do not need to do cardio as it isn’t necessary, however being more active is important, so aiming for 10,000 steps per day is a good way to get you out of your chair and away from the computer more often.Trying to burn fat with excessive cardio without building muscle will only leave you a skinnier, fatter version of what you previously were, so please don’t try and use this as an alternative.Other tips that you can implement are to reduce your time online, especially before bed.Preferably, there should be no screen time for 2-3 hours before bed to allow for a better night’s sleep and for your brain to relax.What could you do instead?Here’s a few ideas:>Go outside,>Go to the gym>Read a book.>Talk to people.Sooner or later you will have to face up to the fact that, if you are skinny fat, you are on the road to severe health issues in the near future.How you deal with this is your choice, try and make it a good one.#TrainSmarthttps://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118?ref=hl* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe FitnessDD Fitness: The Skinny Fat Phenomenon was last modified: April 22nd, 2017 by Emmet RusheShare 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:healthrushe fitnessskinny fatlast_img read more

AND THEN IT WAS GONE! ‘I CAME BACK FROM GOLF TO FIND NEIGHBOUR HAD CHOPPED DOWN MY TREES’

first_imgMr O’Dowd came back to this!A LANDLADY and her tenant have been ordered to pay more than €4,000 in compensation to a pensioner after illegally chopping down his trees.Loman O’Dowd told a court hearing how a first attack on his 26-foot high trees took place four weeks earlier….whilst he popped to the pub for a pint. The 67-year-old, from 22 Glenview Park, Ballybofey, is a retired horticulturist who had spent years developing his garden for a book he was writing.He had spent 33 years as an advisor with Teagasc.But on August 14, 2008, he told Letterkenny Circuit Civil Court, he heard the roar of a chainsaw from 28 Glenview Park and initially thought nothing of it.Instead he decided to go to the pub for a few pints to get away from the noise.When he came back he discovered that Polish neighbour Robert Gasior had removed all the branches for the first five feet on each of eight trees.He said he was left traumatised by the incident because he knew that as the trees were Leylandii, they would never grow back – and would have to be chopped down.Mr O’Dowd said he made a formal complaint to Rose McGlynn, the mother of the man who owned the house and who was renting the property to Mr Gasior.He wrote down a set of proposals for repairing the damage, but Mrs McGlynn never came back to him.Instead, alleged Mr O’Dowd, Mrs McGlynn’s husband Charles had sworn at him several times.Mr O’DowdThen in September 2008 the pensioner had gone to Portnoo to play golf for the day.He returned to find that Charles McGlynn and one of his sons had chopped down the trees completely.Mr O’Dowd said he was “shocked and traumatised” by the incident and had hardly used his garden since. All his privacy was taken away, he said, and a plan he had to write a book about his garden project was gone.In her evidence Mrs McGlynn did not deny any of the claims and admitted under cross-examination from solicitor Frank Dorrian that she had failed to respond to a request from Mr O’Dowd to settle the matter at a time suited to him.Barrister Peter Nolan, representing Mrs McGlynn, said Mr Gasior had cut back the trees because his two daughters had been hurt climbing them.Mr Gasior said he was sorry for all the hassle he had caused and said he had considered moving home as a result.Judge Mary Faherty said she believed the father of two had acted honestly in the interests of protecting his children.However she ruled that Mr O’Dowd’s property had been damaged.Mrs McGlynnShe took into account the fact that Mrs McGlynn had paid €1,300 for a new fence between the houses which back on to each other, and awarded Mr O’Dowd €4,113 in damages to allow him to restore his garden.“This is a case where there was a complete failure in communication,” said the judge.AND THEN IT WAS GONE! ‘I CAME BACK FROM GOLF TO FIND NEIGHBOUR HAD CHOPPED DOWN MY TREES’ was last modified: March 1st, 2014 by John2Share 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:BallybofeyLetterkenny CourtLoman O’Dowdneighbour disputeRose McGlynnlast_img read more
