Defying CCJ consequential ordersArticle 106 (6) of the Constitution of Guyana clearly states that the President and Cabinet must resign after a no-confidence vote, but according to Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan, this provision is a “fiction”.PPP MP Juan EdghillKhemraj RamjattanHe made this pronouncement during an appearance on radio programme ‘Hot Seat’, hosted by broadcaster Stan Gouveia, alongside People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Member of Parliament Bishop Juan Edghill.Ramjattan, who is also a lawyer by profession, described Articles 106 (6) and (7) of the Guyana Constitution as “legal fiction” when he was called out by Edghill for not complying with its provisions, that is, for the Government to resign and have elections within three months.“We’re not going to resign! We are not going to resign because we are still… there’s absolutely nothing in the Constitution that indicates a formal resignation. That was gone through by the CCJ and it was even gone through by the High Court”.“Announce what? Because the next article says notwithstanding that resignation, whatever it is, we continue in government. Who will the President send in his resignation to? I could send my resignation in to the President, but then I stop becoming a Minister that will have any powers whatsoever. So it’s a kind of a legal fiction that is spoken to in that article”.Ramjattan was hotly debated by Edghill, who stressed that Government cannot use the Doctrine of Necessity argument to remain in government without calling elections after September 18, when they were the ones who created the conditions for the necessity in the first place.“What needs to be done is for Granger and his Cabinet to do the first thing, resign. When they resign, they have publicly acknowledged that they intend to comply with the rulings of the CCJ and the Constitution”.“After their defeat, they became a caretaker government. A caretaker government means the Executive, the Cabinet, is disbanded. It means there can be no approval of new legislations, no amendments to current legislation, no implementation of new policy, no treaties signed, no agreements made, no major contracts awarded”.Edghill stressed that Guyana was not in a state of normalcy and that President David Granger needed to lead from the front, act in good faith, and uphold the CCJ rulings and the Constitution of Guyana.PressurePressure has continued to mount on the Government to comply with the Constitution. Recently, representatives of the international community had urged the country’s political players to act swiftly and in compliance with the Constitution, as ordered by the CCJ.In a joint statement issued last week, members of the diplomatic community in Guyana, including the United States, United Kingdom, and the European Union, stated they have taken note of the CCJ’s pronouncements on July 12.They said it is important for the rule of law that all invoked actors abide by the CCJ’s ruling and the relevant provisions of the Constitution. The diplomats furthered urged that this adherence be done expeditiously.“The Caribbean Court of Justice – Guyana’s Supreme Court – has spoken. It is important for the rule of law that all invoked actors abide by its ruling and the relevant provisions of the Constitution. We urge everyone to do so expeditiously,” the diplomats said in the joint communique.This follows statements issued by the Private Sector Commission (PSC), which also urged compliance with the Court and Constitution. Dissolving parliament is a necessary step before calling an election. But so far, the President has made no moves to do this.It was only a few days ago that Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo wrote President David Granger demanding his resignation. In the letter, Jagdeo reminded the President that since July 12, 2019, the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) delivered its consequential orders in the matters of Zulkficar Mustapha versus the AG and others, Christopher Ram versus the AG and others, Bharrat Jagdeo versus the AG and others and Charandass Persaud versus Compton Reid and others.He listed several conditions for the President to accede to, including that the President and his Cabinet immediately resign and that the President issue a proclamation dissolving Parliament. He also called for the President to fix a date for the next General and Regional Elections, not beyond September 18, 2019.Jagdeo reminded the President that CCJ President Justice Adrian Saunders had said that when the No-Confidence Motion was passed on December 21, 2019, Article 106 of the Constitution had immediately been activated.Article 106 (6) of the Constitution states: “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence”.Meanwhile, Article 106 (7) states: “Notwithstanding its defeat, the Government shall remain in office and shall hold an election within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine, and shall resign after the President takes the oath of office following the election”.
0Shares0000Chelsea star Eden Hazard celebrates after scoring against Bournemouth© AFP Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 1 – Chelsea saw off stiff resistance from Bournemouth on Saturday to continue setting a fast pace at the top of the Premier League with four wins from four games.Chelsea had to wait until 19 minutes from time to break down Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge before the in-form Pedro Rodriguez opened the scoring and Eden Hazard sealed the points in a 2-0 win. While Liverpool were expected to challenge champions Manchester City for the title having spent more than any other team in the league over the summer, Maurizio Sarri’s perfect start at Chelsea has surprised even the Italian himself.Sarri’s imprint was again clear to see as the blues dominated possession, but were made to work to inflict Bournemouth’s first defeat of the campaign.French World Cup winner Olivier Giroud came off the bench to help make the breakthrough as he exchanged passes with Pedro before the Spaniard curled home.And Hazard then showed why Chelsea refused to contemplate letting him go to Real Madrid with a classy finish for his second goal of the season.At the other end of the table West Ham remain without a point after Wolves snatched a 1-0 victory in stoppage time at the London Stadium thanks to Adama Traore’s winner.-Everton slowed down-Everton’s fine start to life under Marco Silva stumbled in a 1-1 draw at home to Huddersfield.Brighton fought back from 2-0 down at home to Fulham to grab a 2-2 draw thanks to Glenn Murray’s double.And Southampton claimed their first victory of the season by resisting intense Crystal Palace pressure to win 2-0 at Selhurst Park thanks to second-half goals from Danny Ings and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
Deputy Pearse Doherty has made fresh calls on Minister Michael Creed to robustly defend Irish Live Crab exports to China in the wake of continued heightened import restrictions being imposed on consignments from the state.A number of Donegal seafood companies are directly affected by the restrictions.The call comes over a year after him having first raised the issue with the Minister of the then newly introduced import controls which place stringent restrictions on cadmium heavy metal levels contained in Live Irish crab destined for the Chinese market. The Sinn Fein Deputy said called on the Minister to redouble efforts to have the restrictions on Irish shipments lifted.He said “Over a year ago now, I raised the issue of import restrictions on Live Irish Brown Crab with the Minister in the Dáil as it was apparent then that the measures, which were introduced in October 2015, were having a hugely detrimental impact on Irish exporters who had until then enjoyed relative ease of access to the lucrative Chinese market following a bi-lateral agreement having been reached between both countries in 2010.“On this occasion, the Minister stated then that the Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority (SFPA) was continuing to liaise with the Chinese authorities and, with the Department’s support, were working with the view to resolve the matter which had lowered acceptable cadmium levels in all Crabmeat to just 0.5mg/kg – a limit which is only imposed on white muscle meat sold within the EU.“Last week, I sought an update from the Minister as those within the industry have again expressed their alarm that they are continuing to have these restrictions imposed on Irish consignments entering China. “In his reply, the Minister confirmed that the measures were still in place, but that the SFPA here is continuing to work on a technical level with Chinese import controls, while a visit by officials from China to Irish production facilities and laboratories was also held last year to demonstrate the rigorous testing and monitoring standards of Irish seafood.“I understand that following my intervention to the Minister, officials in China are now considering an action plan which was submitted by authorities here which it’s hoped will convince our Chinese counterparts of the high standard of Irish live crab entering the country.“Of course while the Minister in my opinion has been slow to act, this latest development is to be welcomed, and so it is crucial that, at this point, both the Department and the SFPA redouble efforts to ensure that our exporters regain access to China and lift this effective ban.“Exports are estimated to have a value of some €3 million a year, with a number of vessels– including here in Donegal – providing product to several export companies located throughout the island.“It is therefore crucial that the Minister now takes a much more pro-active role in this process, and that our exporters, and all those whose livelihoods depend on this important industry, may be given the opportunity to grow and expand.” Minister must defend Donegal seafood exports against Chinese restrictions – Doherty was last modified: February 6th, 2017 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:donegalexportsPearse Dohertyseafood

Owens, Chier, Shelton, Vincent, 41.39 Print Friendly Version DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University track and field teams closed out the 40th annual Jim Duncan Invitational by winning 10 events on Saturday, April 16.Pierce Vincent (Fayetteville, Ga.) accounted for two of those wins with first-place showings in the men’s 100 and 200 meters in 10.95 and 21.95, respectively. His 200-meter effort came against a 6.4 m/s headwind as Pierce and the Bulldogs faced strong southerly winds all day despite otherwise perfect conditions.”We won the events we should win, but it was hard with the conditions today to record fast times,” said Drake head coach Natasha Kaiser-Brown. “I’m proud of our efforts today and it was a beautiful, but windy day, which makes it tough.”In the 100 meters, Vincent led the 1-2-3-4 finish with Demetrius Shelton (Markham, Ill.), Aaron Chier (Belgium, Wis.) and Kendall Owens (Carrollton, Texas) following. Owens and Chier also finished in the top 10 of the 200 meters.Rai Ahmed-Green (Irvine, Calif.) led the women’s sprinters to similar success as she won the 200 meters in 25.54 and was second in the 100 meters in 12.56. Taryn Rolle (Nassau, The Bahamas) and Mary Young (Urbandale, Iowa) finished fourth and fifth in the 100 meters while Kaylen Rettig (Allen, Texas.) was fourth in the 200 meters.Young also took second in the 400-meter hurdles as the Drake women’s sprinters swept the hurdles. Destani Welch (Des Moines, Iowa) claimed top honors in the 100-meter hurdles in 14.38 with Virginia Hill (Haymarket, Va.) cruising to first in the 400-meter hurdles in 1:00.76.In the men’s hurdles, Hudson Priebe (Chamberlain, S.D.) was third overall and the second collegiate men’s finisher in the 400-meter hurdles in 53.30, followed by Bas Van Leersum (Zaandam, Netherlands) in fourth. Their coach, LaRon Bennett, won the event in 52.23.Drake’s distance events on Saturday were highlighted by Robert McCann (Mississauga, Ontario) winning the 1,500 meters in 3:54.88 in his first 1,500-meter race of the season.The Bulldogs also had a duo of winners in the field events on Saturday with Christina LeMunyon (Overland Park, Kan.) winning the pole vault by clearing 10-11.75 and Kayla Bell (Bolingbrook, Ill.) winning the triple jump with a leap of 39-3.25 in front of the home crowd at the Blue Oval.”It’s always fun to compete at home and this is always a fan-friendly meet for us, but going into the next series of meets, they get harder,” Kaiser-Brown said. “We’re entering into the championship season phase of our training and as we compete in the Drake Relays, the conference meet and hopefully send more athletes to regionals.”The Bulldogs are set to compete next weekend at the Kansas Relays and the Musco Twilight in Iowa City, Iowa. 100-Meter Hurdles 1.

Fab product or service thicker hair than i anticipated. Thicker hair than i envisioned.Beautiful coloration, actually long and quite thick: really really like this wig 🙂 can absolutely suggest .I purchased just one of these to be alice for a fancy dress party. I have hardly ever worn a wig before and my hair is really long, dim brown and incredibly thick. I considered this would deal with it but when it arrived it as well slender and you could evidently see my hair in it (irrespective of it getting braided to my head and possessing a blonde hair net on). I watched a handful of wig splicing videos and thought ‘i can do that’, so i purchased another just one of these – exact same color – and spliced them collectively to make it thicker. 8 hours later on, it was complete. It took a good deal of hard work but it appeared awesome. I would recommend this wig if you have skinny hair, you might not have the problem i did, but if you have the time and tolerance, splicing two of these with each other is a significantly more cost-effective alternate to obtaining a long blonde wig (in my belief). It is extremely long, it reached my elbows, and the bangs coated my facial area, which is awesome simply because it presents you the likelihood to style it however you want, and the color is charming.Key specs for S-noilite® Long Straight Full Head Wigs Cosplay Costume Party Fancy Dress Wine Red:Length:32inch(80cm)—-Weight:333g—-Style:long straight wig100% brand new stylish long straight full head wig,resend and refund during guaranteedSynthetic fiber hair which is soft touch, Natural Look and heat resistant.

The name Playground is meant to invoke the fun and experimental sides of the collaborative process, Zarom explained. He’s looking for growth in the healthcare and educational sectors. The tool itself is certainly intuitive enough for doctors and patients, teachers and students to figure out without a tutorial – just about anyone, for that matter.Watchitoo Playground costs $3.80 per user per month, but a free version is available, limited to 11 people onscreen at a time and no screen-sharing capabilities. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Watchitoo, the video-conference and collaborative tool, launched Watchitoo Playground today, a simpler version of the service designed for smaller businesses. Playground is clean, bright and intuitive, and blows away other (albeit free) services like Google+ Hangouts and Tinychat.The New York-based video conferencing company has invested heavily in streaming infrastructure, and it shows. Up to 25 people can hang out in the chat at the same time. Screen-sharing and performance of shared YouTube videos are incredibly fast.“We put a lot of emphasis on quality, because we believe presentation is instrumental when we conduct business,” said Wachitoo CEO Rony Zarom. “Video quality is very important to us,” he added.Having used Tinychat and Google+ Hangouts to collaborate with coworkers, I was rather taken by the service, especially with the large size of the image. G+ Hangouts can lag. Tinychat frequently freezes, crashes, and locks people out, and its picture quality is terrible. With Playground, the picture captured by my laptop’s built-in webcam has never looked better.

The Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues today released its first set of recommendations for integrating ethics into neuroscience research in the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative. Last July, President Barack Obama charged the commission with identifying key ethical questions that may arise through the BRAIN Initiative and wider neuroscience research.The report is “a dream come true,” says Judy Illes, a neuroethicist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, who was a guest presenter to the commission. Brain research raises unique ethical issues because it “strikes at the very core of who we are,” said political scientist and philosopher Amy Gutmann of the University of Pennsylvania, who chairs the commission, in a call with reporters yesterday.Specific areas of concern identified in the report include questions of brain privacy raised by advances in neuroimaging research; whether research participants and patients with dementia can give informed consent to participate in experimental trials; and research into cognitive enhancement, which raises “issues of distributive justice and fairness,” Gutmann says.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Parsing hope from hype is key to ethical neuroscience research and its application, Gutmann notes. Citing the troubled ethical history of psychosurgery in the United States, in which more than 40,000 people were lobotomized based on shaky evidence that the procedure could treat psychiatric illnesses such as schizophrenia and depression, Gutmann cautions that a similar ethical derailment is possible in contemporary neuroscience research. A misstep with invasive experimental treatments such as deep brain stimulation surgery would not only be tragic for patients, but have “devastating consequences” for scientific progress, she says.To avoid such disastrous mistakes, the report suggests funding research into both innovative and successful efforts to integrate ethics into neuroscience research and education, including grants similar to the Ethical, Legal and Social Implications (ELSI) research program grants issued for the Human Genome Project. It also calls for all advisory groups and funding review panels for neuroscience research to include a trained bioethicist—a detail that is often overlooked, Gutmann says. The first scientific advisory group to the BRAIN Initiative “notably identified no bioethicists on its panel,” she says. The report makes no mention of ethical concerns surrounding future animal research, but Gutmann says the commission may address that topic in its next two meetings, scheduled for June and August.*Correction, 14 May, 12:15 p.m.: Judy Illes is a neuroethicist at the University of British Columbia, not at the University of Montreal, as previously reported. This has been corrected.
