Arnett Gardens 5 UWI FC 3 Reno 3 Boys’ Town 0 Jamalco 0 Portmore United 1 Montego Bay 2 Waterhouse 1 Tivoli Gardens 1 Maverley-Hughenden 0 Harbour View 1 Humble Lion 0 Yesterday’s results Western Bureau: Schoolboy Jourdaine Fletcher took his goalscoring form into the Red Stripe Premier League, scoring on debut for champions Montego Bay United (MBU) in their 2-1 win over struggling Waterhouse FC yesterday at Wes Pow Park. Fletcher’s goal was a sublime effort as the striker, who took the field at half-time for the injured Dino Williams, connected on a sweet volley in the 68th minute from just inside the Waterhouse 18-yard box to score his first goal of what is an already promising start to his club career. It was the cap to a stirring rearguard effort from the home side, having to battle their way back after Deandre Brown had fired the visitors into a 40th- minute lead. Waterhouse held the advantage into the half-time break, but surrendered tamely in the second half, allowing a rare goal from MBU captain Dwayne Ambusley in the 61st minute for the equaliser, before Fletcher’s stunning volley sealed the victory for MBU, who now have 38 points after the Christmas break. Waterhouse lost all composure and went down to ten men after Nicholy Findlayson was issued a second yellow card in the 63rd minute. Fletcher, who won the 2016 daCosta Cup title with Cornwall College, told The Gleaner he knew he would score, having promised the coaching staff in training sessions that he would. “It is a great feeling to be in a team like this, with stars like Owayne Gordon, Allan Ottey, Dino Williams and Jermaine Woozecroft, and I knew that once I got some minutes I would have scored,” stated Fletcher. “I wanted to play really badly and when I was warming up, I could see myself scoring and I did just that. Words cannot express the feeling I have right now,” he added. Fletcher is one of five schoolboy footballers to sign for MBU at the start of the January transfer window. He said while he will not limit himself to a final goal tally, he just wants to enjoy playing among men while learning all that he can from the experienced players in the squad. “I think this team is very strong in attack with all the star players here and I am coming here to add my flavour and see what happens. So far, it’s an excellent start. I just want to continue scoring goals for this team,” said Fletcher. If his thirty goals for Cornwall College this year are anything to go by, then Fletcher could well be on his way in staking a claim of the best young player in the country. At Frome, a returning Craig Foster struck twice to lead Reno FC to a commanding 2-0 win over cellar-dwellers Boys’ Town FC at the Frome Sports Complex. Foster was on target in the 12th and 41st minutes, respectively. “This was a complete game from the players. Fletcher came in at halftime and scored on debut. It was a well written script,” said MBU’s assistant coach Dillon Thelwell. A disappointed Waterhouse coach Glendon Bailey said his team gave up after taking the lead, but vowed to take the club away from the relegation places.
The Public Health Ministry, in collaboration with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), on Monday continued its Baby-Friendly Initiative by accrediting six hospitals across the country.The hospitals which were accredited are: the West Demerara Regional Hospital, Davis Memorial Hospital, Mahaicony Cottage Hospital, Mahdia District Hospital, Lethem Regional Hospital and the Upper Demerara Hospital.Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton among representatives of the newly accredited baby-friendly hospitalsAmong the criteria necessary to attain baby-friendly status, hospitals are to have a written breastfeeding policy that is routinely communicated to all healthcare staff, they must inform all pregnant women about the benefits and management of breast feeding, and give newborn infants no food or drink other than breast milk unless medically indicated.The overall objective of the breastfeeding project, from its inception, was to improve the health of infants through the promotion, protection and support of breastfeeding, further aiming to ensure that there were baby-friendly hospitals in all the regions of Guyana.Speaking at the ceremony, Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton stressed the importance of breastfeeding.“The Ministry of Public Health, and, by extension, the Government of Guyana, recognises that breastfeeding is a unique process that provides ideal nutrition for infants and contributes to their growth and development. For this reason, the Food Policy Division of the Ministry has collaborated with the WHO and UNICEF, to implement the Baby-friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) here in Guyana,” he said.Dr Norton pointed out that in 1992, when the breastfeeding project was launched globally, “it was no coincidence that Guyana also had relatively high infant mortality and morbidity rates due to diarrheal diseases, acute respiratory tract infection and malnutrition.”The BFHI External Assessment was coordinated during the period February to March 2015, and 12 out of the 19 hospitals in the BFHI programme had signalled their readiness to be assessed to determine their BFHI status.“It is noteworthy that Guyana is the only country in the English-speaking Caribbean with hospitals accredited with the Baby-Friendly Hospital status. I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of those persons who worked tirelessly to ensure that the necessary criteria were met and to urge you to maintain baby-friendly status in those six hospitals,” the Public Health Minister said.In addition to the accreditation ceremony, a two-day follow-up workshop, which is in preparation for the next round of BFHI External Assessment, was also opened.
Amin Modad, Chief Executive Officer of Bella Casa Hotel, located in Sinkor, MonroviaThe outbreak of the Ebola virus in Liberia has dealt a huge blow to the country’s economy, a Liberian businessman operating in Liberia has observed, calling on the government to re-align its fiscal budget to rescue local businesses drowning from the impact of the virus.Amin Modad, a hotel entrepreneur and proprietor of Bella Cassa, a local hotel in Sinkor, told our Business Desk on Tuesday, August 26 that businesses are seeking a tax holiday and other incentives from the government to make up for the losses they are enduring as a result of the Ebola epidemic.“We know exactly the constraints the government is going through at this time and we don’t want to put further pressure on them. But the fact remains that we [domestic private sector] are drowning as a result of the Ebola virus,” Modad said. Many Liberian-own hotel businesses have shut down as a result of the lack of clients.The Ebola virus has killed 1,400 people in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. The virus outbreak has slowed government’s revenue generation in the three countries as expatriates and foreign business owners have fled. “We in the hotel business are among those [businesses] worse it by the Ebola outbreak because our clientele level has dwindled immensely,” he said. “The government must give us [businesses] a period with tax holiday and duty free privileges. We are not being insensitive to the government’s problems.”In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer, Modad, a real estate and trade developer and former senior policy advisor to the Chairman of the National Investment Commission (NIC) disclosed that his hotel currently has less than three clients as a result of the Ebola outbreak.The Liberian businessman, who says he holds a Master degree in business administration (MBA), explained that he has downgraded his staff from 44 permanent staff to only 20. He said the rest of the staff including 14 auxiliary staff, has been urged to stay home.“We had to take such a decision because we are no more receiving clients,” Modad added. According to him, most of the non-essential staff staying home receives part of their monthly salaries for their upkeep because of the prevailing economic condition.

It may be time to say goodbye to your local pharmacy. A federal government drug program designed to make Americans healthier has put many drugstores on their deathbeds. Particularly hard hit are local, independently-owned pharmacies that rely heavily on income from dispensing pills. Some 600 stores have shut their doors nationwide, while survivors are increasingly relying on niche businesses, like selling sodas and knickknacks, to get by. “All pharmacies are going to be destroyed,” said Dany Sharim, who owns Century Discount Pharmacy on Sherman Way in Reseda. “I’m almost sure of it.” The government drug program, known as Medicare Part D, is creating a brutally efficient network of pharmacies. Government officials say the plan is designed to make drugs cheaper, but pharmacists say it has virtually removed what little profit was still left in the business of dispensing prescriptions. As part of the 16-month-old program, scores of lucrative Medi-Cal patients were switched over to the lower-paying Medicare plan, using Part D for their prescriptions. Under Part D, the payment a pharmacist receives from health insurers for each prescription it fills is less than what it was under Medi-Cal. It is unclear how many more local pharmacies will close because of Part D. Under the lower reimbursement rates with Part D, owners of one in three local pharmacies are considering going out of business, according to the National Community Pharmacists Association. Almost 90 percent had worse cash flow after Part D started, and more than half borrowed money to stay in business. Pharmacies are struggling because their profit margins are slim to start with, according to John Cronin, an attorney for the California Pharmacists Association who owns two pharmacies in San Diego County. Independent pharmacies typically make a 4 percent profit overall, Cronin said. But a reduction in prescription reimbursement has reduced that margin to just 2 percent, cutting profits in half. To boost earnings, pharmacists have laid off employees or negotiated better prices for the drugs they buy, Cronin said. Many have sold their businesses or closed. A typical independent pharmacy gets 92 percent of its income from filling prescriptions, leaving little wiggle room when money from dispensing medicine drops. Sharim has seen his profits evaporate since Part D took effect. He took a second job as a security adviser and laid off two employees to make up for lost dollars. Sharim said he stays in business because the work is so satisfying. At Hado Pharmacy on Reseda Boulevard in Reseda, Susan Do has seen her revenue slashed by half. About 80 percent of her income comes from filling prescriptions. She has been in the business for 11 years and thinks about retiring. “I don’t know what to do,” Do said. Lower prescription payments have also dented profits at big chains like CVS and Rite Aid, but the damage does not appear to be as deep. That’s because chains rely less on prescription income and more on sales of sundry items and impulse purchases. Part D has bumped up foot traffic because more people are eligible for prescription coverage under it, and more customers mean more impulse buys, says Mike DeAngelis, a CVS spokesman. “We are certainly impacted by lower reimbursement rates, but the higher utilization rates partially offsets it,” he said. At Rite Aid, profit from filling generic prescriptions “helped offset a substantial portion of the lower reimbursement for Medicare Part D,” said CEO Mary Sammons during a conference call Dec. 21. Increased demand for prescriptions under Part D will hopefully offset lower payments, she added. Big advantages Private health insurers like Blue Cross and Health Net negotiate prescription payments with pharmacies. The problem is local pharmacies don’t have the power to win good rates, Cronin said. “The insurance plans have so much leverage that they can essentially impose what they want,” Cronin said. At Health Net of California in Woodland Hills, determining pay for prescriptions is “a complicated formula” tied to the average wholesale price of a drug, said spokesman Brad Kieffer. “Our motivation is to ensure we have a strong network of pharmacies that serve our customers,” he said. “We want to make sure our customers have convenient access to their medications.” Doesn’t pay to sell In rare cases, private insurers are paying pharmacies less than what it costs a pharmacy to buy the medicine from the drugmaker or wholesaler. Sharim buys glucose strips that measure blood sugar levels for $60. When he fills a customer’s prescription for the strips, he files a claim with the private insurer, which later sends him a check for $40. More often, Sharim will see his profit of a few dollars per prescription disappear into the costs of dispensing the drugs, he said. Sharim holds up a familiar prescription bottle and a white cap. Together they cost $1.20. The label with dosage directions is another 80 cents. Then it takes a few minutes to call a doctor and confirm the prescription or find an alternate drug if need be. It all adds up. But falling profits at local pharmacies mean savings for the rest of us. And that’s a good thing, according to Jeff Nelligan, a Medicare spokesman. “Generally a competitive market yields more efficiencies and lower prices,” Nelligan said, “which is good for consumers and good for taxpayers.” The Medicare program, including the Part D prescription program, is saving taxpayers $197 billion over 10 years, Nelligan said. In 2006, enrollees saved an average of $1,200 in prescription costs, with average monthly premiums of $24. The program is saving consumers a wad, but it is coming out of the wallet of the local pharmacist. Steady decline Since 1960, about 35,000 independently owned pharmacies have closed because of competition from chains, the drying up of cash patients, and the growth of managed-care companies that are able to negotiate lower prescription payments. “This might have been the straw that broke the camel’s back,” said Carol Cook, a spokeswoman for the National Community Pharmacists Association. “If there was a pharmacy that was struggling before January, Medicare Part D probably put them over the fence.” Julia Scott can be reached at julia.scott@dailynews .com or (818) 713-3735. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Click here to read the entire Globe and Mail article.With files from The Globe and Mail Minister Coleman said he called Petronas today after reading the Financial Times article, and was reassured that “our negations are going fine”, although he did not reveal the identify of the person he talked to, citing the need to maintain confidentiality.Premier Christy Clark and Minister Coleman are both seen as already being extremely supportive of the development of LNG in the province, as they both continue to boast the claim that the construction of five plants could result in 58,700 direct and indirect jobs as well as 23,800 positions in the LNG plant operations.It’s also been said to have the potential of eliminating the entire provincial debt.- Advertisement -Provincial representatives say they are certain that steps forward are being made to pave the way for all the regulatory, environmental, fiscal and other barriers to allow for work to commence.One of the major barriers is the continued disapproval from many First Nations groups, who’ve also gone on record to say if development proceeds, they won’t hesitate to take that decision to the Supreme Court.Mr. Abbas is expected to visit Canada Friday, while already being reported to say the U.S. is “leading Canada by a far stretch” in the LNG race and Canada is “already 40 years behind the game.”Advertisement
David James has urged the Football Association to look abroad for the next England boss.Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce is the frontrunner for the job having been given permission to hold talks over succeeding Roy Hodgson, who quit following the disastrous showing at Euro 2016.But James believes an experienced foreign candidate would be a better bet to lead the Three Lions and has called on the FA not to be rushed into a quick decision.In an exclusive interview with talkSPORT, the former England goalkeeper said: “I think England should be looking abroad for a new manager.“I look at the England players and 99 per cent of the players had foreign managers at club level going into the tournament. “Sam is one of the rare English managers in the Premier League. Increasingly it seems you have foreign managers managing English players and if there is such a thing as foreign identity that becomes compromised when you have an English manager with an English identity for the national side, because you are asking the players to be completely different.”Former Germany boss Jurgen Klinsmann, currently managing the US national side, is one foreign candidate who has been talked about as a potential successor to Hodgson.And James believes he would be far more suitable for the Three Lions role than Allardyce.He added: “If it was Klinsman, then you have got someone who has played in England, who was liked tremendously by Tottenham fans and generally in the Premier League. He had a very good air about him.“He has done very well with the US national side, he has been a winner himself, so when it comes to ticking boxes then Jurgen Klinsmann would tick far more than most other candidates at the moment.”

Dan Gildea: Wants shedFAMILY members have taken each other to court in a bitter land dispute over a farm left in a contested will.There are a total of four separate claims to the land left by the late farmer William John Kennedy of Correnagh, five kilometres outside Letterkenny. Mr Kennedy died in 2007 aged 92 and left part of his farm to his niece Ms Nora Kelly and the other part to his nephew Jack Gildea.Ms Kelly, a nurse, had looked after the late Mr Kennedy for 10 years before his death.However Ms Kelly’s mother, Nora Gildea, 89, and two brothers Daniel and Christopher are now claiming various parts of the land.At Donegal Circuit Civil Court sitting in Letterkenny yesterday, Ms Kelly sought to establish ownership of the three pieces of land which are registered in her name.In a counter claim Ms Kelly is being sued for ownership for two pieces of land and a house by her mother, Mrs Nora Gildea.Christopher Gildea is seeking ownership of all the land left to his sister Nora Kelly while his brother Daniel is looking for ownership of a shed and some land around the shed.Daniel Gildea is claiming rights to the shed and land he claims he has worked on for more than 20 years.Ms Kelly told how her family had been subjected her to a “hellish” campaign of intimidation since she received three folios of property in the will.Ms Kelly said her lands were blocked and that her brothers would walk behind her and intimidate her.She claimed she was forced to call Gardai in 2009 when her nephew Trevor had held a party in her late uncle’s house and eventually an injunction against Chris and Dan Gildea and their families was granted last year after a number of other incidents, said Mrs Kelly in her evidence.Chris Gildea: Wants all the lands left to his sisterThe incidents included blocking access to her land by abandoned cars.On another occasion her mother had arrived with another man and had put horses into her field.She revealed she has received 27 sessions with a psychologist.“I was ready to crack up,” she said.In evidence yesterday Dan Gildea said William Kennedy allowed him to use a shed on his land in 1989 and moved into a mobile home while building a home close-by.He is now claiming ownership of the shed and the land around it.Barrister for Ms Kelly, Peter Nolan, claimed that scrap cars were put on the land after 2011 in a bid to make it look like they had been there for years.Dan Gildea’s sister Carmel McMonagle, Ann Molloy and Maura Brown all claimed their brother had worked on cars in the shed and around it for up to 20 years.The court heard that both opposing family sides had placed cameras on their plots of land to film each other.Dan Gildea’s son John told the court that the Kellys had made his and his family’s life hell.He also claimed Mrs Kelly’s husband Paudge had invited him to the lane to fight on two occasions.“We couldn’t even go outside our front door without a camera being stuck in our face,” he said.Jack Gildea, (67), told the court that he was executor of the will of his uncle William.He told Mr Nolan he ‘just didn’t know’ why his two brothers and his mother were suing his sister Nora and not him.He said that when he told his family of the details of the will around 2009 “they shook my hand.”He also described his uncle as being ‘mad about horses’ and he allowed anyone who wanted to use his land to do so.His uncle had been kicked by a horse in 1998 and his sister Nora had cared for him from then until his death in 2007 at the age of 92, he told Judge Mary Faherty.The judge asked him who had use of the disputed shed before 1989 when Dan Gildea had moved a mobile home onto adjacent land in order to start building a house there.“Willie John used it for cattle,” said Jack Gildea.The case, which is expected to hear evidence from Mrs Nora Gildea and Mr Christopher Gildea today, continues before Judge Faherty.DONEGAL FAMILY AT WAR OVER OWNERSHIP OF FARM LEFT IN WILL was last modified: May 15th, 2013 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:DONEGAL FAMILY AT WAR OVER OWNERSHIP OF FARM LEFT IN WILL
