The Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission (GL&SC) is working towards identifying areas for new Land Development Schemes for the year 2018.This is according to Commissioner Trevor Benn, who last week said: “When people come to the office to apply for new land, we don’t have a plot number to say we have these available. So, we are looking at developing new areas like the Linden Highway so that people can have access to lands.”According to Benn, GL&SC has been challenged to open new areas for houselotGL&SC Commissioner Trevor Benndistribution as a result of limited resources.Meanwhile, Commissioner Benn said the GL&SC has received many expressions of interest for lands in 2017 from citizens, here and abroad.Benn said the Commission during 2017 worked on compiling plans for various areas for the benefit of all clients.“Most of our plans are individual plans, relating to a specific plot of land across the country. This has not been very helpful to investors and the Government who want to engage in infrastructural work,” Benn is quoted by the Department of Public Information (DPI) as saying.Benn said work has already been done in the Houston, Great Diamond, Herstelling, Eccles to Peter’s Hall and Farm to Covent Garden areas. In 2018, the Commission hopes to continue the exercise to ensure that all the areas in all the regions are completed, “so that customers can visit the office and acquire one plan”, Benn said.In the long run, he explained, the Commission hopes to have a national plan showing in greater detail the information required.According to Benn, the Commission has been able to provide new forms, which reflect applicants for commercial and individual purposes.He also highlighted that “chief among the Commission’s challenges” was the issue of squatting.“No matter what part of Guyana you go, people are squatting. Many times, they are encouraged by local authorities to squat on the embankment and reserves. We are trying to push back on that. In 2018, we will work a little harder to enforce that [squatting is illegal],” Benn warned.
Thus, the regulatory clock is essentially stopped until Hydro responds in full, and if then satisfied, the panel will schedule public hearings. Proponents of the dam see it as part of the solution to a population growth of one million people over the next two decades, that along with major economic expansion, means power needs are likely to increase by 40 per cent over the same period. Opponents see it – among other things – as the most destructive Agricultural Land Reserve project in the province’s history, with more than 6,000 hectares of farmland targeted for flooding. – Advertisement -If the project eventually moves forward it is hoped Site C will be available for electricity needs by 2020.
Lifford Greyhound Stadium has been put up for sale.Lifford is already fighting the recessionThe track, which has been opened since 1949, employs a number of people on a part-time basis.But the track, which has one race night each week, has now been put on the market Northern Ireland auctioneers by O’Connor Kennedy Turtle of Coleraine. The 23 acre site in the border town could be refurbished but there are also fears it could be sold on and used for something completely different.That raises the questions over a number of part-time posts including cleaners, restaurant staff and track staff.

NEW! Fitness instructor Michael Black is back with donegaldaily.com with a new series of articles to help you get fit for summer! The clocks go forward an hour this weekend, so with longer evenings (and some decent weather) there’s no excuse for just sitting there! So get up, get out and get moving!BY MICHAEL BLACK: Summer is fast approaching and hopefully your new year fitness resolutions are still going strong. It’ll be time to get rid of the woolly jumpers, put on your shorts, and hit the beach. This should be a great feeling; unless of course you’re fitness resolutions stopped as quick as it came into your head and you ate your way threw a load of junk food with little or no activity…..If so, you may be keeping the woolly jumpers out and covering up for the next few months.But there is hope if you want to get in shape for our version of Summertime. But you have to start right now!! . We have put together your ultimate summer fitness plan, and it all starts with the commitment to yourself. CommitOK, so by now you will be talking yourself into getting started. What next? You must have a plan. “Fail to plan and you will plan to fail,” as the saying goes. Make sure you keep a record of what you are doing. Stick it up on your wall at work or fridge at the house. That way, every morning when you get up and walk into the kitchen, you’ll see what your daily workout is that day. This is as important as any other meeting or task you have that day, even more in some cases, so don’t put it last on the list of things to do. “You are worth it too!”You don’t need any fancy equipment. All you need is your imagination, the will to succeed and heaps of determination.If you are really serious about improving your fitness and shedding some weight, I recommend you try working out at least 5 days a week. You have to be consistent and be patient with your body. Be comfortable and feel good about yourself when your training. Invest a little money in a good pair of running shoes and some workout gear. The last thing you’ll need is a pair of dumbbells (or a 2-litre bottle, a heavy book, brick or jar lying around your house if you don’t have the equipment). Once you have all this sorted you can get started on your fitness plan. I have broken down a week to let you see how it works.MondayStart out with five to 10 minutes of walking or jogging to get warmed up then we move on to some Total Body Circuits.. Beginners may want to start with less and the more advanced fitness folks can use the upper range. We’re going to do two sets of 10 (beginners) to 50 (advanced) of each exercise. Go through the list and do each exercise one time with 10 jumping jacks in between. Then do the circuit again. Do 2 more times if you’re feeling really energetic.Pull-upsBurpeesSit-ups or crunchesStarburstsPress-upsSquatsDips- Sit on a bench or chair. Begin with the hands next to or slightly under the hips. Lift up onto the hands and bring the hips forward. Bend the elbows (no lower than 90 degrees) and lower the hips down, keeping them very close to the chair. Keep the shoulders downAlternating lunges-Step forward with one leg and lower your body to 90 degrees at both knees. Don’t step out too far. There should be 2 to 2.5 feet between your feet at this point. Keep your weight on your heels and don’t allow your knees to cross the plane of your toes. Push up and back to the starting position to complete one rep. Repeat all reps on one leg, then switch to complete one setRemember to do the 10 jumping jacks between each exercise. Finish it off with five to 10 minutes jogging or walking and 10 to 15 minutes of stretching.TuesdayIt’s time for hill or stair repeats. Start with a five to 10 minute warm-up and finish with a 5 – 10 minute cool down and 10 -15 minutes of stretching. Find a hill or set of stairs–the steeper the better. You have to go from the bottom to the top ten times pushing really hard each time. You should be out of breath after each one. If you are on a hill, try and get at least 20 seconds of hard uphill running or fast walking. Add a burpee every second uphill effort. Wednesday Bring out your dumbbells or your make shift equipment. Remember warm up for 10 minutes first and follow the following exercises with no recovery in between. BurpeesDumbbell squat/curl/press (all one motion)Dumbbell alternating lungesSit-ups/crunches with a dumbbellDumbbell squatsDumbbell deadliftsOverhead triceps extensionsDumbbell Bicep curlsFlutter kicks Thursday Advertisement Let’s get outside and pick up the pace. Go to the park or local track and remember warm up easy walk or jog for 10 minutes. Begin with 100m fast sprinting, recover 30 seconds. Sprint for 200m, recover 1min. Sprint for 300m, recover for 1min.Sprint for 400m (1 lap of a track) recover for 90sec’s. Then work your way back down from 400,300,200,100. Finish with 10 min easy jog or walk.FridayOk last day of training and our aim is to take the exercises you have on Monday and Wednesday and put them all together but with a little twist. Start with your pull up then do 10 jumping jacks. Then do another exercise and do 100m run or 20 sec jog on spot. Another exercise and follow that with 5 burpees. Keep repeating this cycle until you have all the exercises on, Monday and Wednesday completed.Keep this format going for 4-5 weeks to see real results. You can play around with some of the exercises, take some out put some in but work hard on each of them. Try and get outside and do this now that the weather is getting better. Kepp smiling and work hard. Onwards and Upwards!

Charlie McConalogue TDDONEGAL TD Charlie McConalogue is calling on the Government to initiate contact with the Labour Relations Commission with a view to averting next Tuesday’s strike action by teachers.More than 800 secondary school teachers in Donegal plan to take part in the action, closing all secondary schools in the county.Fianna Fail Spokesperson on Education Deputy McConalogue said the deadlock between the Education Minister and unions requires outside intervention. As many as 350,000 students nationwide will be affected by the action if it goes ahead on Tuesday.Deputy McConalogue told Donegal Daily today: “The current stalemate cannot be allowed to continue. All efforts must be made to avert the strike on Tuesday, and Minister Jan O’Sullivan should make contact with Kevin Foley at the LRC to establish whether he can engage with the teachers unions.“The only way this process can move forward is if both the Minister and the unions agree to drop their preconditions and participate in meaningful discussions.“Teachers are understandably concerned about changes to the independent assessment mechanism. It has been an important component of our examination system for decades and has proved to be an efficient and effective practice. “It is unfair of Minister O’Sullivan to expect teachers to sign up to a school-based assessment model without publishing any of the details of the project or portfolio work. By the same token, the unions must appreciate the concessions the Minister has made to date.”Deputy McConalogue warned: “The relationship between the teachers unions and the Department of Education has been tainted by the attitude adopted by former Minister Ruairi Quinn. His refusal to engage or consult with the ASTI and TUI created a tension that saw relations deteriorate significantly. Minister O’Sullivan’s revised proposals mark a significant departure from her predecessors’ plan, but the issue of independent assessment remains.“It is important that we do not enter into a prolonged period of industrial unrest in our schools and I would urge the Minister to employ all of the industrial relations machinery of the State to resolve this current impasse. These strikes will cause widespread disruption across the school system, and will affect tens of thousands of secondary students, including those preparing for State exams.“The ultimate goal of this process must be a better curriculum for our students. We need to ensure that pupils are more engaged in the learning process, rather than concentrating on a wrote system and final exams. There is a responsibility on teachers and the Minister to achieve this, beginning with an open negotiations process without any preconditions”.McCONALOGUE APPEALS FOR PLAN TO STOP TEACHERS’ STRIKE was last modified: November 28th, 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:Charlie McConalogue TDdonegalfianna failteachers strike
Proline are leading the Rwenzori Group by a point. (File Photo)FUFA Big League 2018/19Proline FC vs Bumate FCStarTimes Stadium, LugogoWednesday, 17-04-2019 @4pmLUGOGO – Proline will be hoping to take a giant step towards sealing promotion when they host Bumate FC at the Startimes Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.Shafick Bisaso’s side currently enjoy a one point advantage of the Rwenzori Group in the Big League but know that they still have work to do in order to seal promotion to the top tier.Against Bumate, they have a glorious chance to move clear at the top as their opponents have nothing more to play for in the division.Bumate who were docked six points for failing to honour League fixtures against Dove FC and Kabale Sharp, have zero points and are bottom of the Group.With only four points separating Proline and Dove FC in fourth, there is no room for error for Bisaso’s side.“We are facing a hard team but we are going to fight so hard to get those points, said Bisaso ahead of the game.“We don’t have any small game left for us, we lead the log with one point but that doesn’t put pressure on us”.The hosts who won the first encounter between the two sides, 3-0 away from home, thanks to Arnold Sserunjogi, Mustafa Mujuzi and Hakin Kiwanuka strikes, will miss the services of skipper Noordin Bunjo and experienced centre half Mustafa Mujuzi through suspension. They will also be without injured Ismail Kabugu. The good news coming from the treatment room is that defender Saka Mpiima has returned from injury and is ready to play.A win for Proline will drive them to 37 points from 17 games and will wait for what comes out from the matches involving direct rivals Kiboga, Kansai Plascon and Dove FC who all play tomorrow (Thursday).The Big league upcoming fixtures:Thursday, 18-04-2019.-Dove Fc vs Water FC-Ntinda United vs Kansai Plascon-Kireka United vs Kiboga Young-Kyetume vs UPDF FC-Light SS vs Bukedea Town council-Kataka FC vs Entebbe FC-Nebbi Central vs Wakiso GiantsSaturday, 20-04-2019.-Kitara FC vs Kabale Sharp FC-Amuka Bright Stars vs Bukedea Town CouncilComments Tags: Bumate FCFUFA Big League 2018/19proline fctop
