  • Djokovic loses to Edmund in Madrid Open; Nadal advances

    first_imgNovak Djokovic of Serbia reacts during his match against Kyle Edmund of Britain during the Madrid Open Tennis tournament in Madrid, Spain, Wednesday, May 9, 2018. (AP Photo/Paul White)MADRID — Novak Djokovic added another early elimination to his disappointing season, while Rafael Nadal continued to look invincible on clay.Djokovic lost to Kyle Edmund 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 on Wednesday in the second round of the Madrid Open, the sixth straight tournament in which he has failed to reach the quarterfinals.ADVERTISEMENT Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption Nadal later cruised past Gael Monfils 6-3, 6-1, extending his record of consecutive sets won on clay to 48.

But, also, he was courageous enough to attack the balls when it mattered and deserved to win.”Djokovic played poorly in the first set but recovered to comfortably win the second. He had a chance to go up a break early in the third set but lost five straight points to allow Edmund to come back from 0-40. The unseeded British player then broke Djokovic’s serve to go up 5-3 and easily closed out the match on his serve.“I just felt good today, felt I was hitting the ball well,” Edmund said. “I just knew that if I put myself in the match hopefully in the closing stages I would give myself a chance. That game in the third set was very key. When Novak gets a lead it’s very hard to break him down because he becomes a bit more aggressive.”Edmund will next play eighth-seeded David Goffin, who defeated Robin Haase 7-5, 6-3.Nadal improved to 17-1 overall on the season with his win over the 41st-ranked Monfils.ADVERTISEMENT Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazillast_img read more

  • Libtelco MD, Board ‘Failed to Adhere’ to Procurement Rules

    first_imgThe Managing Director and entire board of the Liberia Telecommunications Corporation (Libtelco) are currently serving a suspension sentence by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, “pending the conclusion of an investigation, under the guidance of the Ministry of Justice, into their failure to adhere to the provisions of the Public Procurement Act in concluding a contract with a European company, Ketter Telecom (K3),” the Executive Mansion disclosed over the weekend.The Liberian leader took the action following a meeting with the Libtelco Board on Friday evening.Multiple sources close to the issue told the Daily Observer over the weekend that Libtelco signed an agreement with K3 for the use of its patented technology that conveys telecommunications services over long distances for a fraction of the cost of building the standard infrastructure. “As attractive as the proposition seems,” our sources said, “the first mistake was that Libtelco forgot that it is a public utility company, and that it could not enter such a high-value agreement alone.  Other functionaries of government needed to be involved.” The agreement also included profit-sharing from highly competitive and thus very lucrative triple-play service package containing high-speed internet, television and voice, powered by Libtelco’s local advantage of the ACE fibre optic cable and the K3’s infrastructure.  For this to work, K3 would provide services under Libtelco’s license instead of applying to the Liberia Telecommunications Authority (LTA) on its own. LTA has yet to officially comment on the implications.The Acting Minister of Justice, Cllr. Benedict Sannor, whom President Sirleaf designated to probe the matter, said although he has not been called upon to carry out a full investigation per se, “the entire process between Libtelco and K3 is null and void. So it means that there is no contract between the two from the beginning of the whole initiative.”“What I have been called upon to do is not really an investigation,” Minister Sannor said. “The President is not happy with the manner in which the Libtelco leadership carried out the arrangement, because it is not in the interest of the Liberian government. So what we are doing now is that we are trying to protect government; this is why the entire process has been rendered void.”Our sources also disclosed that this was not Libtelco’s first attempt at entering an agreement without observing the public procurement process.  A previous agreement with another service provider for the provision of land-line communications infrastructure was rejected by the Ministry of Finance two years ago because Libtelco failed to observe the public procurement process and perform due diligence.  Libtelco was later informed that first of all, a tender (bid) needed to be announced for the conduct of a feasibility study in order to understand the cost implications of the land-line project.  That tender process is now being administered by the West Africa Regional Communications Infrastructure Project of the World Bank. Once the feasibility study is completed, and based on the results, a new tender would be announced for the provision of services. There are other alleged transgressions that, if proven true, could be very both legally and financially damaging for Libtelco, including the alleged use of “short-cuts” to facilitate cheap international calls in and out of Libtelco’s network. No official from Libtelco has responded to inquiries by the Daily Observer so far. Those suspended include Libtelco’s board chair, Mr. Francis Horton; managing director and board secretary, Mr. Ben Wolo; as well as members Ciata Victor, Floyd Thomas, Mohammed Sherif, James Cooper and Jackson E. Doe.Though Minister Sannor could not comment how long the suspension of the board would last, the fates of these officials remain in limbo until the investigation, spearheaded by the Ministry of Justice, is concluded. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Disappointing Mash experience

    first_imgDear Editor,Please allow me to comment on my Mash 2018 experience. Durban Park was packed to capacity. My family and I settled at stand # 22. I expected the music, float and revellers to enter the park from the western end and go around the block, allowing the spectators to witness their final display. Instead, the trucks entered the park, turned off their music, and quietly exited the eastern entrance with revellers.This was a cold show for Mashramani. Everyone in the stand sucked their teeth. They didn’t even have extended speakers so the spectators on the eastern side could hear what was going on at the judges table.Whoever are the organizers must know that they have disappointed those who came out to be part of Mashramani 2018.Yours sincerely,C Woolfordlast_img read more

  • Sugar protests getting under GuySuCo’s skin – GAWU

    first_imgGeneral Secretary of the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU), Seepaul Narine, on Thursday condemned the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) for what he feels is an attempt to “denigrate” the union’s “unrelenting and principled stance” in defending the rights of thousands of sugar workers.GAWU General Secretary, Seepaul NarineThe sugar workers, their families and other stakeholders have been protesting Government’s move to discontinue operations at several sugar estates, as confirmed in this year’s State Paper on the industry’s future.GuySuCo Senior Communications Officer, Audreyanna Thomas, had earlier this week penned a letter in the press which noted that the sugar corporation is seeking those sugar workers who were “misled”. However, GAWU indicated that Thomas’s letter was just another “public relations stunt” that discredits the union defending the many cross-sections of workers who stand to be affected by what the union termed as “ill-conceived plans” that GuySuCo advocated for the sugar industry.One of the many protests GAWU organised in Berbice“From the Corporation’s letter, it seems that the Union-organised protests at several estates are getting under the not-too-thick skin of the Corporation and its handlers. Our most recent activity at Albion attracted an appreciable turnout and demonstrates the disagreement, shared not only by workers and their families, (but by) the wider communities,” the union official stated in a lengthy release issued on Thursday.Some 375 Wales workers have been out of employment at GuySuCo for the last several months. They contend that they cannot be compelled to travel 22 miles from Wales, West Bank Demerara to Uitvlugt on the West Coast of Demerara. On that ground they have demanded severance payment, but the Corporation contends that all workers who opted for severance had already been paid. This matter is slated to come up in the High Court.“GuySuCo says it will demand very soon a “higher level” of service from GAWU. But such a call is best suited to GuySuCo. Our Union nevertheless is supportive of all plans which will secure the sugar industry. But at the same time cannot lend a supporting voice to plans which will wreck lives and imperil entire communities, as we have seen playing out at Wales,” Narine pointedly expressed.The GAWU General Secretary further highlighted the uncertainties of the diversification plans the sugar corporation has, plans which Agriculture Minister Noel Holder had announced last year.Narine went on to explain that up until now, no worker was given any land to capitalize on the supposed diversification plans. He noted that GuySuCo, like a “wolf in sheep’s clothing, goes on to speak to provision of transportation and medical services to the workers and their families and pensioners.Is the company expecting the agriculture workers to join public transportation from their home at 05:00 am and travel to the cultivation some 5 to 10 miles in rugged off-road terrain?” he questioned.Narine also reiterated that, in the main, GAWU strikes are related to price disputes. He noted that sugar workers have encountered two years of no pay increases; were “shortchanged” on API in 2015, and were given no API in 2016; and that there was arbitrary cutting down of workers’ benefits.“We take serious and utmost umbrage with GuySuCo’s view that the GAWU is engaged in sabotage. This is completely unfounded and a figment of someone’s imagination. Moreover, the Corporation also seems to question the wisdom of the workers’ protest actions. But wouldn’t any rational person whose livelihood is threatened take a similar approach? Ms Thomas and her colleagues ensconced in the comforts of GuySuCo hierarchy would sing a different tune had the shoe been on the other foot,” the GAWU General Secretary stressed.Finance Minister Winston Jordan, in his presentation of the 2017 Budget, had indicated that the status quo at the sugar industry could neither be sustained nor maintained. He had explained that, based on the CoI, it was concluded that any money injected into the sugar industry in its current state was money wasted.last_img read more

  • Benfica fall £1.5m short in bid for Arsenal forward

    first_img1 Joel Campbell in action for Arsenal Benfica missed out on Arsenal forward Joel Campbell after falling just £1.5m short of the asking price, according to reports in Portugal.Campbell had been linked with a deadline day move to the Portuguese champions and his agent had reportedly flown to Lisbon to discuss a potential deal.However, the move never materialised and, according to O Jogo, it is because Benfica were just £1.5m short of Arsenal’s asking price.Arsenal are said to have wanted around £9.5m for Campbell, who scored the equalising goal in Costa Rica’s 3-1 victory against Uruguay at this summer’s World Cup.But Benfica were only willing to offer £8m for the 22-year-old and so the transfer collapsed hours before the deadline.Campbell was also said to be keen on a loan move in attempt to guarantee first-team football, but Arsenal were only willing to consider a permanent deal.last_img read more

  • Teacher union biggest donor in school board races

    first_img 165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter. Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! In the Whittier area, Montebello Unified School District incumbent Marcella Calderon has received $9,000. David Vela, a challenger in the district, was given $4,000. The Whittier Union High School Districts’ teacher union gave $2,000 to incumbent Ralph Pacheco and challenger Tim Schneider. The East Whittier School District’s teacher union gave $3,000 to challenger Dimitri Ebling. NORWALK – Whittier-area teacher unions again are the top source for campaign money in the upcoming Nov. 6 school board elections. So far, local unions have donated a total of $21,000 to five candidates running in three separate elections. That’s nothing new, said Whittier Councilman Owen Newcomer, also a retired professor of political science from Rio Hondo College. “The teachers have a direct personal, professional and economic interest in school board policy,” Newcomer said. “They’re close to it as classroom teachers.” And it’s why the teacher unions are the only regular group that gives in school board elections, he said.last_img read more
