1  English Forum / Bugs Reports / Cheap Air Max Tn Shoes The appellant was 15 years old on the date of the offence on: Today at 05:34:16 pm
Albany, New York-An attorney for Jermayne Timmons is appealing his conviction of depraved indifference murder in the death of 10-year-old Kathina Thomas.Thomas, whose family had arrived in Albany from Guyana some 16 months earlier, was hit by a stray .45 caliber bullet while playing outside her home at 445 First Street on May 29,Cheap Nike Shox, 2008.Timmons was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison after his conviction in January 2009 by a jury. He was acquitted of one count of second-degree murder, intentional homicide,Air Max 98 Sale, but convicted of murder showing depraved indifference.The teen fired a single shot 1,000 feet away, contending he was shooting at another youth who he thought was pulling a gun on him.District Attorney David Soares responded to the appeal in a prepared statement.“Mr. Timmons fired a gun that took the life of a child and awoke an entire community to the reality of gun violence,Cheap Air Max 2018 Shoes,” Soares said. “He was prosecuted and convicted by a jury of his peers. He has every right to an appeal, and we have the right to defend the will of his jury.”Attorney Lee Greenstein filed the appeal, arguing that the prosecution never proved Timmons fired the .45 caliber pistol that killed Thomas and that the evidence did not support the charge of depraved indifference. Timmons has maintained that he fired a .32 caliber weapon on the night in question.Greenstein also argued that prosecutors should not have been able to present two different versions of the crime: both that Timmons intentionally killed the girl and that he did so due to depraved indifference.Greenstein also said the district attorney’s office should not have been allowed to introduce as evidence two apology notes Timmons wrote.“The notes from appellant to the victim’s mother, expressing his remorse that his actions might have resulted in her daughter’s death, were wholly irrelevant since the appellant could not have known whether the single bullet he fired, amongst the many that he knew were fired,2018 Nike Air Max 97, was, in fact, the stray bullet that accidentally struck the victim,Air Max 90 Black And White,” Greenstein wrote.He also objected to the use of autopsy photos, saying that they unfairly prejudiced the jury.“Any marginal relevance of the heartrending photographs was outweighed by the prejudicial impact,” he wrote.Greenstein also accused the prosecution of making inflammatory, prejudicial comments and shifting the burden to the defense of establishing Timmons’s innocence.The attorney also objected to admission of some comments on the stand from Detective Thomas Kubisch.In his final argument, Greenstein said that even if the court upholds the conviction,Nike Air Max 97 Silver Bullet Australia, the 15-year-to-life term was excessive and the case should be sent back to court for re-sentencing.“The appellant was 15 years old on the date of the offence; he did not intend to strike the victim but rather a young man who appeared to reach for a weapon; he fired his gun only once,” Greenstein wrote. He also said Timmons acted along with a 21-year-old who instructed him to fire the gun. (www.timesunion.com)

Re-printed from Stabroek NewsInternet search giant Google says that the Stabroek News website has not hosted malicious software over the last 90 days and that it “is not currently listed as suspicious.”Google said that over the last 90 days the website www.stabroeknews.com “appeared to function as an intermediary for the infection of 1 site(s)” and that it was “listed for suspicious activity 1 time(s) over the past 90 days.” This had resulted in the internet search giant temporarily issuing a security advisory listing the Stabroek News website as “suspicious” for several hours on Saturday. However, full access to the website was restored at 9 pm on Saturday.Stabroek News technical staffer Kester Clarke said that on Friday one of the newspaper company’s web servers was targeted by an unknown attacker. The attack was first observed at 11 pm, and the attacker was able to serve malicious software to visitors on the website on 7 of its pages. According to Clarke,Cheap Air Max Shoes, at about 2:30 am on Saturday “the malicious software was removed from the server and the weakness plugged by our technical staff along with the assistance of our Web Host.” The problem, Clarke explained, was solved using an automated system. He said too that efforts are ongoing to prevent such problems from recurring.By the time the problem was fixed,Cheap Air Max Shoes For Sale, Clarke said that Google’s Search Advisory had already scanned the infected pages and had begun notifying users of Mozilla Firefox as well as visitors arriving through search engine results that the Stabroek News website might be harmful to their computer. However, during this time,Air Max 2018 Shoes, persons using Internet Explorer had no difficulty in accessing the Stabroek News website,Cheap Air Max 90 Shoes, Clarke pointed out.Google in their latest diagnostic test of the website said that the last time suspicious content was found was on Saturday. It said too that “of the 360 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 7 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent.” The last time Google visited the site was on Monday.Clarke explained that the malicious software was linked back to the website dhfyjrud321.com which was established sometime on Friday. It is unclear whether this site was created locally,Cheap AIr Max 95 Trainers, but Clarke said that this was a possibility.An article appeared in last Sunday’s Guyana Chronicle captioned “Google warns against visiting Stabroek News website; paper sorting problem out with Google”. The article quoted one Michael Jebbs, a security adviser at Google Inc, as saying that “the company had launched an investigation into the operations of Stabroek News after receiving complaints from a U.S Internet Spyware watchdog and dozens of users in the United States alleging that Stabroek News has been installing spyware and malicious software onto the computers of visitors to their website.”The Guyana Chronicle has to date not carried a follow-up story clarifying that the problem had been solved and was not attributable to SN.Meanwhile,Air Max Shoes For Sale, Clarke said that prior to Friday there had been two complaints from visitors to the Stabroek News website about them receiving spyware after visiting but that these were investigated and proven to be false. He said on both occasions, the spyware had come from other sites that the persons had visited.SN Editor-in-Chief Anand Persaud said Guyana Publications Inc. will do whatever is necessary to further bolster the security of the website. He said the website is patronized by thousands every day both here and in the diaspora. He added that on a regular basis there are attempts to attack the website but these have been repulsed by the multi-layered security protecting the website and its servers. He said that since the Saturday incident website traffic has returned to normal. (www.stabroeknews.com
3  English Forum / Users support / Cheap Mens Jordan Sneakers also built the US$902M on: Today at 05:31:15 pm
…Sithe Global rate of return on project similar to Guyana’s 19%Sithe Global,Cheap AIr Max 95 Trainers, the developer for the Amaila Falls Hydro Electric Project, also built the US$902M,Air Max 1 Atmos For Sale, 250MW Hydro Plant in Bujagali,Air Max 97 Undefeated Green, Uganda, and the power company in the African nation is once again being forced to ask for an increase in electricity tariff.The request comes just months after that Hydro Electric Plant would have been commissioned.In April this year it was reported in the international news that the Uganda Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA)’s board of directors was considering a power tariff increase.That increase in electricity is being considered just after huge increments of 69 per cent and 36 per cent for large scale and domestic consumers respectively early last year.The Ugandan ERA was seeking a further increase of between five and 15 per cent this year.The Plant was commissioned last year.The increase requested in Uganda is the second such request this year to raise the prices paid for electricity in that nation.Consumers under the Uganda Electricity Users Association have gone to court to protest.This request follows a trend of tariff increases registered in the previous years. In 2005,Nike Roshe Run Sale Outlet, prices increased by 24 per cent; by 35 per cent in June 2006 and 41 per cent in November of the same year.Among the reasons proffered for the increase in tariffs on the Ugandan people for electricity is the inefficiency of that country’s Power Company, Umeme,Nike Air Max Shoes For Men, the Ugandan equivalent of the Guyana Power and Light Inc. (GPL).According to reports, the power company needs an influx of cash through the increasing of its tariff in order to rehabilitate the sick distribution network and reduce system losses.Umeme’s power losses are at 26.1 percent of the energy produced.The technical and commercial losses incurred by GPL stand collectively at 31 per cent.Umeme says it plans to reduce its distribution losses to 23 percent in 2013 by rolling out prepaid metering, replacing old equipment and also connecting more people to the grid.“This does however require money, and lots of it. Prepaid metering in total requires about US$300M.”This is only for prepaid metering, but then there are additional costs like improving the network. Celestino Babungi, the Chief Financial Officer for Umeme, says the utility is also looking to “secure long term financing from various lenders.”With Bujagali on,Air Max 97 Undefeated Uk, much of the Ugandan thermal generators would be switched off in favour of the much cheaper hydro option. But the other reality was that hydro, although largely thought to be cheap, needs humongous amounts of capital outlay, US$902M in the case of Bujagali, money that the government was unable to raise. This therefore called for private-public partnerships. Private investors, including Sithe Global, called for a 19.2 per cent return on its investment.It charged Guyana a 19 per cent rate of return for the US$158M that it said it would have invested in the Amaila Falls Hydro Electric Project.

By PractitionerLet me start by apologizing in advance to any reader I might offend with the intensely personal nature of this article – my rationale is recounting what I’ve been through is the best way of communicating my thoughts on an issue that has wider public health ramifications.By the time you would have read this article, I should be in hospital somewhere overseas.  Over the next couple of days, I will be struggling with a personal medical problem that has hounded me for too many years than I’d care to recount – chronic back pain.I’ve written about this issue and – more importantly – the attendant dependence I’ve developed on the painkillers used for treatment about twice over the past two years.  The first article, I wrote generally on the issue of pain management and the second one had more to do with my reaction to the rife and completely inaccurate speculation of my hospitalisation last year.This time, I wish to write more directly on the issue, not just the larger picture,Nike Air Max 1 Mens Shoe, but bringing as well some of the unique perspective that I possess.  Dependency, addiction, in the larger connotation of it, has almost many manifestations as there are things people can do.Some people are addicted to gambling,Nike Shox Clearance, others are addicted to sex.  I remember reading one news story a few years back,Nike Epic React Flyknit For Sale, one I showed to my son as hint, where a young man was so addicted to a videogame that he played it several days non-stop before collapsing and dying in front of his computer.Some people are addicted to shopping, although admittedly (and I expect some repercussions from my wife for saying this) it’s hard to tell if many women are actually addicted to shopping or if it’s just a regular weekend.That said, chemical addictions, or substance dependency, constitute the most widespread and critical forms of addiction.  According to a recent report by Dr. Sanjay Gupta that I saw on CNN, there are some 23 million Americans currently addicted to one substance or the other – alcohol, marijuana, tobacco, illegal drugs, prescription medication and even glue.The actual order of primacy of abuse, the top three addictive drugs are, in descending order,Off White Air Max 97 For Sale, alcohol,NCAA Hockey Jerseys, marijuana and prescription painkillers.  The latter, accounts for 1.9 million of those addicts.I’ve had two major back surgeries in my life – intended to relieve the chronic back pain I experience – and each necessitated the use of very strong prescription painkillers for my recovery.  And I, quite frankly, have struggled with a clear addiction to them. There is a serious and sad irony attached to the use of powerful painkillers: while they work well to relieve pain at the onset, very often, with the real pain gone, the body (or brain, rather) becomes so addicted to their effects that coming off them makes you feel much worse than the pain they helped to relieve in the first place.Coming off a strong prescription painkiller is a living, walking nightmare of craving for the drug, body chills, insomnia, anxiety attacks, depression – one minute you’re delirious, the other you’re irritable and no one can talk to you.  All these are things I’ve experienced and it is no picnic for me.The thing is, it isn’t a picnic for others either, as with any addiction, particularly chemical ones, the addict doesn’t suffer in isolation.  The drugs alter your personality so subtly but so significantly at the same time that although you most likely won’t notice the difference, the worst of it – the alienation, the irritability, the lack of communication – is felt by those closest to you.I’ve spent a long time thinking hard on how this thing has impacted upon my life and I can tell you, that time has been personally enlightening for me with regard to my perspective on substance dependency.  For example, you see the typical drug addict, the typical junkie, walking on the street and your view of that person is somehow subhuman.To satisfy his or her addiction, the cocaine or marijuana addict’s life is one of great personal compromise – humiliating and arduous manual labour for little compensation; being treated with indignity and scorn by almost everyone they come across.  I’ve been witness to one ‘junkie’ disparaging another – equally ragged, equally homeless – because the former would only smoke marijuana and drink rum, while the latter was a full blown cocaine addict.At a fundamental level, prescription pain medication dependency is the same thing, the same sacrificing of personal standards, granted to a much lesser degree.  This sort of medication is difficult to come by,Nike Air Max 98 Og, and while I’ve personally never checked, I am sure that it is far easier to get a joint of marijuana or a gram of cocaine than it is to procure, say, a couple Vicodin tablets, or a syringe of some other pain-relief drug.If I’m to be honest with myself, at my worst point of dependency, I’d say I was nothing more than a sophisticated junkie and like any junkie, your addiction affects how you work.  I’ve been short with staff, and I’ve had to cancel meetings, and the only thing that has spared me really is that my other addiction; work itself, served as a sort of therapy for me.Potentially addictive painkillers, or potentially addictive regimens of painkiller treatment, should really be the last resort in the treatment of any pain related condition or illness, and whenever the decision is taken, it should include comprehensive patient education about the pros and cons, in addition to extensive psychotherapy throughout the duration of the treatment.This would save the patient a great deal of pain in the long term, whether actual pain or the psychic trauma that comes with dependency and the attendant stigma attached to it.Which brings me to this: in an upcoming article, I want to deal frontally with a serious related issue that regards patient confidentiality, particularly within the private healthcare industry in Guyana.While I am grateful to, and have tremendous respect for, the medical personnel that have attended to me at various times, I believe that there are gaps in the private health care system here which facilitate the leakage of an individual’s personal health information, the sort of gaps that would be prosecutable in other jurisdictions.In closing, let me say that I am extremely grateful that I have the family that I have, and the staff that work close to me, people who’ve weathered the storm of my shift in moods, and stuck by and supported me throughout.I remember going to former President Bharrat Jagdeo and Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr. Roger Luncheon, both of whom I had to communicate directly with regard to my professional responsibilities in various capacities, and being encouraged to take as much time as I want to deal with my medical problems adequately.I remember the President saying clearly, and sincerely, “We want you to get better.”  I, of course, didn’t take their advice and went back to work as soon as I felt marginally better.As for my anonymous detractors, particular those behind the letter writing campaign – questioning my health, my capacity for job performance – that prompted the article I wrote a year ago, ‘Coming Clean’, about my personal health problems, I will be off for a few weeks and while I’ve prepared some columns to be published, I apologise in advance that I will not be able to respond directly to feedback for obvious reasons.This is the first in a series to focus on the abuse of prescriptive drugs. Many in the medical profession, among them doctors and nurses are drug addicts—addicted to prescriptive drugs, not least among them Pethadine.Some conservative estimates place the number of addicted doctors at about 20 per cent.

The Ruimzeight Rice Processors Incorporated (Alesie),Nike Off White The Ten, is once again counting its losses after one of its staffer and a taxi-driver,Cheap Air Max 95, were robbed at gunpoint yesterday afternoon in the vicinity of the Demerara Harbour Bridge Bus Stop on the eastern side of the link.According to reports,Adidas Shoes On Sale Cheap, the staffer – who requested anonymity – had just uplifted the company’s payroll from a City bank.

There is a greater chance of improving revenue collection from trade if there is greater scrutiny and inspections of goods and heavier fines placed on defaulters.This is the conclusion following discussions with the Examining Officers following year-end spot checks at several shipping ports by Commissioner-General (ag) senior managers and team.Last Tuesday, GRA Commissioner General (ag) Ingrid Griffith; along with Fitzroy Corlette,Jordan Shoes For Sale Cheap, Head Project Coordination; Jameel Baksh, Deputy Commissioner, Customs Excise and Trade Operations; and Simone Beckles, Senior Manager, Wharves, Boathouse and CJIA Operation; visited the GRA Goods Examination Unit (GEU) on Lombard Street, La Penitence, where the stationary container scanner is housed.GRA Commissioner-General (ag) Ingrid Griffith (right) during discussions with Customs officers at Muneshwer’s WharfGriffith led impromptu visits to several wharves around the city for spot checks and discussions with customs officers tasked with administering the country’s Tax, Trade and Border Laws and Regulations year-round.Smuggling,Air Max 90 Black And White Mens, under declared imports and other clandestine activities in trade are challenges which the GRA is forced to tackle in its daily efforts to collect and protect revenue owed to the state.During the course of the visits the Commissioner-General (ag) also took note of some of the resource constraints at the ports and suggested possible solutions.Among them was the backlog of Want of Entry (unclaimed) cargo which should be disposed of within a certain time frame in accordance with the laws of Guyana and the Authority’s standard operating procedures.The additional locations visited were the John Fernandes Wharf and Terminal, the Guyana National Shipping Corporation (GNSC), the Guyana National Industrial Company (GNIC), the Demerara Shipping Company Limited (DSCL), Muneshwer’s Limited and Q-Trex International.Business at those locations have slowed down considerably when compared to the extremely high volume of traffic seen in the days and weeks leading up to the Christmas celebrations when there was need for the optimization of the Authority’s services to clear personal and commercial cargo.Both Andrew Astwood,Air Max 2018 Shoes, the Managing Director, GNSC and Clinton Williams,Nike Air Max Tn Shoes Women, Chief Executive Officer,Nike Tns Sale, GNIC noted that the extended working hours for Customs Officials and other interventions supported the efforts needed for efficiency during the peak season.Since mid-November,Air Max 97 Undefeated For Sale, systems were put in place at the level of the GRA’s Customs Excise and Trade Operations to accommodate the anticipated heavy volume of cargo arriving from overseas.These initiatives included extended working hours at the Transit Sheds and the Entry Processing Unit (EPU) on weekdays and on Saturdays.The tours came mere days before 2015 ended and ambitious revenue targets were to be reached.At the conclusion of the day’s activities the team noted that additional visits are scheduled for other GRA locations in early January 2016.

T&T Newsday – THE FACILITIES at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport at Guyana will come under scrutiny among many possible factors that pushed Flight BW 523 to overshoot the runway after years of complaints from pilots and flight attendants.According to the director of Guyana’s Civil Aviation Authority Zulfikar Mohamed, pilots have complained that the existing systems in place at the airport are not good for landing in bad weather.Mohamed has further noted that the landing systems at the airport were being upgraded on Saturday at the time of the incident. The upgrades include the introduction of an instrument landing system (ILS).“Things will be better with a new ILS system that we are testing,” Mohamed told the Associated Press. Canadian company Intelcan is reportedly installing an ILS at the airport, as part of a US$22 million upgrade.An ILS helps pilots land by giving a more precise reading of the angle of descent as well as position of aircraft. It is especially helpful when there is low visibility,Cheap Air Max 2018 Shoes, as was the case when pilots were landing Flight BW 523 on Saturday.“That’s when you want to have the best navigation capabilities,” said Doug Moss, a commercial airline pilot who runs AeroPacific Consulting in Torrance, California. “ILS, even though it’s about 50 years old, is still the best thing they have.”The CAL Boeing 737-800 jet skidded off a rain-slicked runway and broke apart early Saturday morning with 162 people on board. A reported 30 people were injured but there were no deaths.Former flight attendants also noted years of concerns over the facilities at the airport yesterday.“I remember when I was a purser I was always apprehensive about flying to Guyana at night,” said Christopher Nathan on a Facebook group page devoted to former BWIA flight attendants. “The fog is so bad. Often heavy rain makes the runway a pond and most of all there was always the thought of the precipice at the end of the runway in case we were not able to stop the aircraft on time.”Officials from the US National Transportation Safety Board have arrived in Guyana. Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago state officials have asked the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to assist in the investigation. The team includes experts in operations, meteorology, airworthiness, survival factors and aircraft performance.Generally the investigation will turn to the airport facilities, the actions of the crew and the mechanics of the craft and whether there was any malfunction or irregularity.“The first thing the flight investigators are going to look at are what we call the flight dynamics, in other words where did they touch down on the runway, how far down, was it too far, how fast were they going and was there water on the runway that would have let them hydroplane on a thin film of water,” ABC News aviation consultant John Nance said in a report on Sunday.The other key issue officials will look at is whether the pilots forgot to open up the wing flaps, which would have been critical for slowing down the plane on landing. Additionally,Air Max 97 Buy Online, investigators will be looking at the issue of pilot fatigue,Air Max 90 Black And White For Sale, given the early morning landing.“No question, when you are looking at accidents on the backside of the clock one of the key questions is was the crew tired, either directly or cumulatively tired over time. These things can be very important in figuring out exactly what happened,Air Max 97 Uk,” Nance added.Pictures of the scene of Saturday’s crash suggest that movable panels on the front of the Boeing 737 wings were not extended as required, the Wall Street Journal noted on its website yesterday. The devices are designed to help planes decelerate and reduce speed at touchdown. Safety experts said that without the benefit of the movable wing panels, it could have been difficult for the pilots to stop the plane in time.Investigators are to examine if there were any problems with the plane’s hydraulics,Adidas Nmd r1 Pink, brakes or other systems, and whether that possibly could have contributed to the accident.Many overshoots have been linked to wet or rainy conditions.  In 2009 an American Airlines Boeing 737-800 equipped with enhanced visual-landing aids hurtled off the end of a Kingston, Jamaica runway made slick by standing water. Nobody aboard either plane was killed. A Southwest Airlines Co jet ran off the end of a slushy Chicago strip in December 2005.There were reports yesterday that the four-year-old plane involved in Saturday’s incident was leased three months ago from Ireland’s Macquarie AirFinance in April, the same month the Government chartered a CAL plane for a trip to Brazil.Caribbean Airlines has declined to issue information about the leasing of the aircraft involved in Saturday’s incident, but has said the craft was a Boeing 737-800 and was four-years-old. However company officials have denied that the craft was leased from Macquarie AirFinance.Director of the Civil Aviation Authority of Trinidad and Tobago Ramesh Lutchmedial, who remained in Guyana yesterday after attending official business last week, said the focus now is on determining what happened and learning from the incident.He warned that it was too early to come to premature conclusions over the incident.“One of the first things you learn to do is you never come to any premature conclusions,Cheap Air Max Shoes With Free Shipping,” he said.“The priority at the moment is to determine the cause and to put measures in place to prevent a reoccurrence. That is standard in every accident. He said the NTSB, which has been asked to handle the investigation as an independent body by officials of both Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago, will provide a preliminary assessment and give an indication of the parameters of its investigation.

….. Calls APNU/AFC actions flagrant violationsEven the Supreme Parliament of Guyana is not above and beyond the Constitution.Anil NandalallThis is according to the Government’s Chief Legal Officer, Minister of Legal Affairs and Attorney General Anil Nandlall.He was defending the move to undertake legal action challenging the actions of the combined opposition parties in Parliament.Nandlall is attending the Intercessional Meeting of CARICOM Heads in Paramaribo Suriname.The combined Opposition parties, Alliance for Change (AFC) and A Partnership for National Unity, are at loggerheads with the ruling Peoples Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) over the dispensation of the Committees of Parliament.The Attorney General reminded that the country has a proportional representation system and this has to be respected and adhered to in the makeup of the Parliamentary Committees.The combined opposition parties had used their advantage to amend the parameters for the number of people who could sit in such a committee.Previously, the PPP/C had five seats, the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) four and the AFC one.That was changed by the combined opposition reducing it to nine,Off White Vapormax For Sale, which would give the ruling administration four.APNU would also have four and the AFC would have the remaining one seat ensuring that the opposition votes on such committees were in the majority as in the case of the 65-seat National Assembly.Nandlall yesterday also reminded the Opposition leaders that the seats in Parliament are allocated based on a percentage of the votes at the elections which saw the PPP/C having the single largest bloc in the House.Both the Opposition Leader David Granger and Speaker of the National Assembly,Nike Air Max Tn Shoes Women, Raphael Trotman, are named as respondents in the legal battle about to be waged by the PPP/C.Nandlall argued that it cannot be upheld, that the PPP/C with 49 per cent of the votes at election was left with only four seats on the committees while APNU which secured for itself 40 per cent of the votes are also given four seats.“Based on that proportionality principle,Air Max 98 Gundam Price, seats were allocated to respective parties, based on the results of last election.”The PPP/C has 32 seats in the House while APNU holds 26 and AFC seven giving the combined opposition a 33/32 voting advantage in the National Assembly.“The 32 that the PPP/C has is six more than APNU,” Nandlall sought to remind even as he pointed out that this dispensation translates to roughly 30,000 more people voting for the administration over APNU or another political party.He said that the Committees of Parliament “undertake a very important part of the works of the National Assembly,” and as such its composition of Parliament must be reflected in those Committees.”Nandlall argues that the composition being pushed for by the opposition does not accurately translate the makeup of the House. “They are trying to equate 49.2 per cent with 40 per cent.”“In other words, the 30,Nike Air Max 97 Buy,000 or more thousand persons who voted for the PPP/C, their views, their franchise, their votes are not expressed in the configuration of a committee give-s the PPP/C four seats and APNU four.”Nandlall called the moves by the opposition a violation of the proportionality principle “which is captured and contemplated and provided for by the Constitution.He said that there is nothing unprecedented about the Government’s action adding that, “Parliament remains an organ that is subservient to the Constitution (of Guyana)…Parliament has no authority to act beyond the powers reposed in it by the Constitution.”The Minister said that if hypothetically, the National Assembly approves and pass as piece of Law which conflicts with the Constitution, “the court has the power to strike it down.”He drew reference to 1997 when the Parliament had passed a Law relevant to the General Elections of that year.He was speaking to the amendments to make mandatory, the use of an Identification Card when qualifying to vote and the PNC “took that to court and the Judge upheld the PNC’s submission that the requirement of an ID card is unconstitutional and as such the House had acted in contravention to the Supreme Law of the land.”The nation’s Legal Minister said that “those who are speaking about the Constitutional propriety of the move of the government are speaking off the cuff.”According to Nandlall, when the detractors would have had some time to sit and really address their minds to the statements they have made, they may have a change of heart.He said that the move is nothing new on the part of the government and that the Court always has the power to strike down a decision taken in

15  English Forum / General Discussion / Adidas Shoes On Sale Cheap many wonder whether the marital institution is dying on: Today at 03:11:21 pm
With a steady rise in divorce rates,Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Mens, prominent Pastor and Evangelist Ivan Williams has put this phenomenon down to the increased use of social media and technology, causing a rift between couples.Williams has been practising evangelism for almost 46 years,College Jerseys, married for 35 and has fathered four sons and one daughter.According to Williams, with the breakdown of societal standards and the introduction of modern social media, it is not unusual to find a husband on his tablet and his wife on her laptop in the same bed. Therefore there is no personal communication, no development and getting to know each other.“Marriages are made in Heaven but the details are worked out in Earth,Nike Vapor Max Plus,” the marriage counsellor said. “The social media is a massive distraction and couples must ask the question, why they want to get married?”A perusal of popular social applications such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram show that marriages are portrayed as a fairy-tale, ‘happily-ever-after’ story. However, the Pastor said that marriages are a commitment for life and if it is viewed as a fairy-tale, society is headed in the wrong direction.“It’s all about our concept of marriage and how we see it,” the evangelist said. “Some women say they want to be a June bride (said to be a popular choice for marriages) – it’s not just being a June bride; marriage is a commitment for life.”The Pastor was then asked what some of his views on common-law relationships are. He said, “People do not want to do the honourable thing. They use the term a ‘good live home is better than a bad marriage.”“There is no good ‘live home’, because the scripture already condemns us for living home and marriage is honoured by God,Epic React Flyknit Womens,” he pointed out. “You honour God and life itself when you decide to get married. You dishonour yourself when you decide to live home.”According to Williams, it is better to have a union honoured by God, than to have an unlawful association that is dishonourable. However, Williams also observed that there is no urge to get married.Social commentators have been observing a rise in common-law relationships and marriages under the impact of technology and social media. The average Guyanese should have been asking; is marriage is an old concept that doesn’t fit with our current generational ideas?The question has also been asked whether society has been losing the ability to work at having loving relationships because of a preference for instant gratification. Indeed, many wonder whether the marital institution is dying,Air Max 2018 Shoes, or whether society is changing the outlook of marriage with social media and technology.With a sharp rise in divorces and separations, the amount of people choosing to stay single or ‘live in’ with their partners,Cheap Nike Air Max 97 Shoes, leads one to speculate whether the institution of marriage as we know it, is dying.Judging by the statistics that often reach us through newspapers, television and online fora also by simply taking a look at relationships around us, many would say that marriage has seen better days.In addition, society’s acceptance of divorces has been on a general rise.
