By Ryhaan ShahThe introspection that has come with the centenary commemoration of the abolition of the indentureship programme does not forecast an optimistic future for Indians in Guyana.More than the bleak economic prospects with sugar, rice and business sector under siege, the social infrastructure of Indian marginalisation in every sphere of Guyana’s political and cultural life favours an invisibility and diminution that are supported by state policies which appear punitive and which seem to directly target the Indian Guyanese community.Minister of Culture Nicolette Henry’s lack of knowledge about the Hindu festivals of Phagwah and Deepavali is not just a faux pas at the highest level of Government, but should be taken as a clear indication of Government’s lack of concern and regard for the Indian Guyanese community in general. It unmasks the state’s social cohesion programme as so much empty rhetoric, and gives credence to the widely held belief that the loss of our ethnic and cultural rights is acceptable collateral damage in a high-stakes game for absolute power.The creeping authoritarianism of the Granger Government is evident in its flouting of law, the Constitution, and of even the optics of ethnic equality that might serve to dispel some of the pessimism that pervades the Indian Guyanese community.It is not just that the size of our population has dropped from 51 percent to a mere 40 percent, if that much, because of large-scale emigration to safer locations in North America, where we would not be targets for racial/political violence; but that those of us who remain are bombarded with the message – subtle and not-so-subtle – that to be Guyanese means surrendering our heritage and identity to the dominant African Caribbean culture. This is both unconstitutional and a violation of our human rights; but neither matters in a society where successive Governments have paid little heed to such overarching laws and principles. The incessant propaganda gains a measure of success because not many Indian Guyanese can stomach the abuse and accusations of racism that are hurled at those who speak from a position of truth about their ethnic identity. The bullying is now a societal norm, and comes from all quarters; but the still-largest minority, Indians, are expected to subsume their identity in order for Guyana to achieve national unity. So the script goes; it does appear odd, and bears some investigation.The many stories of our fore-parents’ revolt and bravery in their fight for justice on the sugar plantations share a common factor in that all the rebellions and disturbances arose from within the indentured community. There were no unions or politicians organising or directing them. Leaders rose up from among the labourers themselves, and they fought valiantly; many being killed and wounded in the process for their rights.These were people – both men and women — with an independent and fighting spirit, who spoke and acted against injustice and had no need for anyone to galvanise them to right action.Then what happened? And what has happened to that fighting spirit? Because denial of any Indian identity and control of the unity message emanate from officialdom, some Indian Guyanese are rightly confused, while others are very comfortable with cultural loss and displacement, being acceptable prices to pay for societal inclusion.Professors from Indian universities who were here for the centenary commemoration were pleasantly surprised at how much our community has retained by way of religion and culture after 179 years. The very fact that we retain so much of our heritage and values indicates that these attributes are important to us; and in a truly just and plural society, this retention would be commended and respected as part of our nation’s rich diversity.However, talk of respect for such diversity is also part of the tired political rhetoric, while age-old suspicions, jealousies and hatreds are stoked and encouraged in the name of “oneness”. Were this not the case, Indian Guyanese would be employed in representative numbers along with every other ethnic group in every state institution; our artistic expressions would be showcased at every national celebration; and our narrative would be part of the fabric of our nation’s history and literature.Every group would condemn an attack on any other group, because we would all uphold the ethos that an attack on one is an attack on all. This, however, is not the state of the nation; and, unfortunately, there is no political will that promises that it would ever be. Indian Guyanese take note, and many respond with flight or with surrendering their ethnic identity.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp 1 Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp launched a staunch defence of his youngsters after a weakened Reds side came from behind to rescue a 2-2 draw with Exeter in the third round if the FA Cup.Without 13 players for the trip to Deven to face the League Two minnows, Klopp made 11 changes from the side which beat Stoke in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final on Tuesday.With big Premier League clashes against Arsenal and Manchester United looming, Klopp opted to go with youth at St James Park, with Klopp’s youthful team boasting only 34 first-team appearances in total and Tiago Ilori, Kevin Stewart and Ryan Kent handed senior debuts.Exeter looked on their way to a big upset when Tom Nichols fired them into a ninth-minute lead.Highly-rated Jerome Sinclair equalised within three minutes, but Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan was guilty of a howler on the stroke of half-time when Lee Holmes’ corner sailed straight over his head.Fortunately for the Reds, 21-year-old Australian defender Brad Smith was there to convert from close-range in the closing stages to seal a draw, but Klopp said the kids deserved credit for the result, not criticism.“If you want to criticise anyone, criticise me and leave the players alone,” said the German boss.“If they made mistakes it’s my responsibility, they helped us at this moment.“We tried to create a line-up under time and pressure.“They came back yesterday, we trained together and again this morning for about 40 minutes.“We tried to create a common plan and idea, it wasn’t too good, not too bad.“But it showed in football that you must work together and and train together, and that’s not what we could do with this team.”Klopp added: “We didn’t defend too well and we lost a lot of one-on-one situations.“The pitch was difficult for both teams, they scored from their first attack and then from a corner.“The second goal was something like a miracle, it wasn’t too easy for the young boys.“We had a few moments, but not enough, and it didn’t work 100 per cent.“But the draw was the logical result, we deserved it.”

This machine is usless to most but to me it is my career.“I can not carry out treatments without it. Can everyone please share this Donegal Daily story and keep an eye out on any buy and sell sites. “Or if anyone has approached you trying to sell it please let me know. I am completely devastated and disgusted that someone can just take the tools I require to do my job and make a living. Please please share and keep an eye out. There are very few machines of this brand around.” COMMUNITY ALERT: THIEVES RAID BUSINESS AND STEAL €6,000 WORTH OF EQUIPMENT was last modified: April 26th, 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)
World Cup-winning legend Sir Geoff Hurst has thrown his weight into the debate over England’s attacking options, saying in-form duo Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy deserve to start in Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2016 team.Hodgson’s side boasts a wealth of talent up front ahead of the summer’s tournament, with Kane, Vardy, Daniel Sturridge, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck all battling for a startling spot.Despite missing most of the end of the season through injury, Three Lions skipper Rooney is expected to keep his startling XI place, while Liverpool frontman Sturridge is one of England’s most dangerous goal threats.But with the Reds striker also having his campaign interrupted by contract injury problems, and Kane and Vardy scoring 40 Premier League goals between them this season, 1966 hero Hurst believes the Tottenham and Leicester strikers have deserved their chance to shine.Asked who he would play up front at Euro 2016, Sir Geoff told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “I’d go with the two front players who have had fantastic seasons – Vardy and Kane.“They deserve to be in the team and deserve their chance.“I’m not sure whether you can play both of them together, but surely one of them deserves it.“If you’ve got two players like that you could try to be clever and substitute them, give one guy a really good run and stick the other one on for the last half-hour if you need to.“But Vardy and Kane deserve to be in the team, it’s as simple as that. Their performances have been fantastic this season, they’re scoring goals like nobody’s business.”
The McGarvey brothers Ronan (14) and Conor (11) of Donegal Pens, yesterday watched their dream become a reality.Donegal Pens new work shop was delivered and erected on site at the family home, with the support of Expert Hardware, who is funding the development. The excitement was contagious and the boys could hardly contain themselves when they saw what is to be their new plant.Now, they have the ability to produce more handcrafted pens turned and assembled in the new work shop in the Gaeltacht area.Commenting on site, Ronan stated “We are thrilled with the new work shop. The office and manufacturing is now all under one roof with ample space for production. Without the sponsorship and support of Expert Hardware, this would not have been possible.”Alan Grant of Expert Hardware added: “Ronan and Conor are an inspiration to any young person with a business idea who has the passion and commitment to follow through on their vision. “It is great to see such talent coming through and we as a nation must support, nurture and invest in such talent and NOT discriminate due to age”.Grant added; Ireland’s future is dependent on the youth of today and we at Expert Hardware believe in the McGarvey Brothers and will give any support we can”.Donegal Pens was established in September 2010. Since then they have quickly etched out a market for their hand crafted wooden pens, which are individually turned, polished and waxed in their workshop at Loch an Iúir.With this new infrastructure in place they can now proceed with expanding their business, with a view to increasing exports internationally.In addition to funding the new workshop, the team at Expert Hardware have also offered to provide marketing and mentoring support to the young brothers as they grow their business. Expert Hardware with over 40 stores nationwide is also stocking these wonderful and unique hand crafted wooden pens. Having recently sold out, a large order will now be completed with new systems in place. WRITE ON!

Formerly housed in a storefront near Kmart, the new center gives the room to expand the programs it offers and its disaster services. The local chapter was established in 1976 and has been offering training in first aid and CPR. Santa Clarita businesses also take advantage of Red Cross courses in disaster preparedness and health and safety training to meet federal standards. In Santa Clarita, the Red Cross responds to fires, flood and other emergencies. Its new quarters, the former Facey Medical Group building in Valencia, has more meeting space than the old. A formal grand opening was held last week. Information about the Red Cross is available at www.RedCrossLA.org or by calling 1-888-TO-HELP-LA.
Twitchell and Caruso said they would hold future meetings to discuss specific requests that could be incorporated into the project, including a possible outpost or office for emergency responders. Should The Shops at Santa Anita be built, City Hall estimates it will receive approximately $2.3 million in tax revenues annually. That revenue, Twitchell said, could be useful for securing new department equipment and personnel. More money in city coffers could also mean more room for the union to negotiate salaries and benefits. There are no assurances any of the revenue will go toward emergency services, as it is subject to the council’s regular budget-making process. Details of the project’s impact on emergency services are outlined in its environmental impact report, which is available online at www.ci.arcadia.ca.us. firstname.lastname@example.org (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4444160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It would seem unlikely those navigating the clogged arteries of city traffic with such urgency would back a massive development project, but the firefighters union said Tuesday it expects The Shops at Santa Anita to make their jobs easier. “This is a large benefit for us,” said Jack Twitchell, president of the Arcadia Firefighters Association, at a press conference where the firefighters endorsed the project. Developer Rick Caruso’s proposal for a 829,000-square-foot shopping, office and entertainment complex at the site of the Santa Anita Race Track is expected to put another 15,000 cars on Arcadia’s streets daily.

Much of the $10 million to $12 million Caruso anticipates spending to address traffic will go toward upgrading outdated traffic technology. His decision to remove residential apartments from the project last year and resubmit his plan, Twitchell said, demonstrated his willingness to work with the community. Apartments would have created a “live, sitting problem, 24 hours a day,” he said. The fire department responds, on average, in 4.09 minutes, according to the environmental review.
