Kaieteur News lied about $1B Haags Bosch landfill settlement – AG

first_imgThe Attorney General Chambers on Thursday denied reports that it has hammered out a billion settlement with construction conglomerate BK International and the Guyana Government after the Chief Justice (ag) Ian Chang reversed a decision to terminate his contract to manage the Haag Bosch Landfill Site, at Eccles, East Bank Demerara.Norman WhittakerLocal tabloid Kaieteur News in its Thursday, April 8, 2016 edition carried an article captioned; “Haags Bosch dumpsite controversy,Basil WilliamsBK gets $1 billion settlement with GovtBrian TiwarieHowever, in a statement, the AG Cambers dismissed the report as “erroneous, malicious and vexatious” and is demanding an apology from the news outfit.It said after then Justice Chang ruled that the February 27, 2015 termination of the contract was not correctly done, the APNU/AFC government on December 30, 2015, caused a Notice of Appeal and an Application for a Stay to be filed against the said decision.“Talks were entered into with the Hon Minister of Communities and his team, Brian Tiwarie and his team and the Hon Attorney-General and his team, with a view to resolving this matter since the work on the Haags Bosch Dumpsite was at a standstill, and, the stench and smoke from fires on the dumpsite were affecting the surrounding communities,” the statement explained.It added that in the course of talks permission was sought from Cabinet and granted to negotiate a settlement with a view to ending the contractual relationship with Brian Tiwarie, and having his company exit the dumpsite.“Negotiations have commenced and are not yet complete. Moreover, any proposed settlement would have to return to Cabinet for approval,” it stated.The AG Chambers said based on these facts, it is evident the said articles are “erroneous, malicious and vexatious and designed to sully the good name of the Attorney-General, his officers, the Ministry of Legal Affairs and the Government of Guyana.The AG Chambers wants the tabloid to apologise.Meanwhile, when contacted by Guyana Times on Friday, Tiwarie confirmed the negotiations, but said he has not received any documentations regarding a settlement thus far.Back in 2009 the Government of Guyana entered a contractual agreement to design, execute, complete, operate and maintain the Haags Bosch Landfill at a cost of some US$7,729,822.50.However, because the project was being funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the international funding Agency had some requirements that needed to be filled, but was not seeing this in the work executed by the company.It is reported that the sanitary landfill which was initially designed to facilitate 6000 tonnes of solid waste per month was processing in excess of 10,000 tonnes per month, while its construction was still a work in progress.Intended to last for 26 years, the rate of usage at the facility had projected a significantly reduced lifespan.The landfill is expected to facilitate garbage disposal from Georgetown and some 15 Neighbourhood Democratic Councils (NDCs).last_img read more

LAUSD’s payroll fouled up

first_imgRoiled by glitches in a new $95 million computerized payroll system that have left thousands of employees without checks, Los Angeles school officials said Wednesday that they will review the contracting process that led to the deal and might consider taking legal action against the suppliers. Problems with the system have left more than 10,000 employees without paychecks for two weeks, and Los Angeles Unified School District officials expect similar problems next month. And questions have been raised on the district’s choice of SAP Public Services for the system despite a history of problems at other schools, a more-expensive software bid and a potential political connection to the LAUSD. The lobbying firm Rose & Kindel represents SAP and also has a contract with the district for consulting and lobbying in Sacramento. It lobbied in 2005 for state legislation that allowed the district to use a less-stringent bidding process for major technology purchases. “One of the things we always do when a system is rolled out is … look for lessons learned. We have to go back and look at the history of procurement, certainly. … We’ll do our due diligence to see if it was a good deal,” said Superintendent David Brewer III. District officials have defended the contract award and say instead that the suppliers may have failed to adequately prepare for implementation. But some also are questioning the timing of legislation that allowed the LAUSD to award the contract to SAP. More flexibility In October 2005, Rose & Kindel lobbied for legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Lloyd Levine on behalf of the district to provide more flexibility in selecting technology providers. SAP officials have said Rose & Kindel didn’t lobby for the legislation on behalf of SAP – and has not lobbied for SAP on anything before LAUSD officials because of the potential conflict. And LAUSD officials have said that because Rose & Kindel doesn’t lobby district officials on behalf of clients, there was no conflict between the firm’s lobbying for the district on the bill and having a Sacramento tie to SAP. The bill was signed into law Oct. 4, 2005. Later that day, SAP announced its contract with the LAUSD. “It certainly is strange in the sense that the reason for the legislation was we can’t go with the lowest bid because it wouldn’t perform as well as the highest bid,” said Bob Stern, director of the Center for Governmental Studies in Los Angeles. “And now it turns out the highest bid didn’t perform well at all.” Levine did not return a call for comment. So far, officials are aware of 10,000 LAUSD employees – out of more than 100,000 – who have been affected by the glitches, said Chuck Burbridge, district chief financial officer. Bus driver Benny Bernal, an 18-year LAUSD veteran and incoming vice president of Service Employees International Union Local 99, said his check was hundreds of dollars short. Bernal said other employees have told him the glitches have led to their accounts being overdrawn, rent checks delayed and mortgage payments missed. “I found this system was used in other states and has failed,” Bernal said. “Obviously they were aware of it, and I want an answer as to who made the final decision and what are we going to do to hold these people accountable,” he said. Prepared to pay The district has set up a service center for employees who have questions or need emergency funds. Officials are also contacting employees’ banks and expect district funds to pay any fees the glitches caused employees to incur, including overdraft and insufficient-fund charges. While district officials said they don’t yet have an estimate of how much it will cost, Bernal said redoing employees’ timecards in the transportation department takes three hours per driver and totals about $75,000 a day. Touted as a key to cutting inefficiencies, fraud and bureaucracy, the new payroll system is set to be completely operational by 2008. But it has been riddled with problems at other educational institutions. Last year, the faculty union sued the nine Los Angeles community colleges over delays and incorrect paychecks. College officials blamed their new SAP system. LAUSD school board member David Tokofsky said the board will consider whether to sue SAP and Deloitte Consulting, the company hired to implement the system. “When there’s a crash, often the responsibility is on all the parties, and we’ve heard a lot about L.A. Unified’s fault,” he said. “But what we haven’t seen in explicit terms yet is SAP and Deloitte’s responsibilities, contractually and institutionally.” Deloitte Consulting received an 18-month, $55 million contract – the largest chunk in the new system’s $95 million contract – because of the firm’s familiarity with SAP implementation, Tokofsky said. SAP Public Services did not return a call. Deloitte spokeswoman Christine Brodeur said in a written statement that Deloitte will continue to work with the district on the issue. Nationwide problems School board candidate Tamar Galatzan, who’s challenging incumbent Jon Lauritzen, said in a letter to Lauritzen on Tuesday that the system has had problems around the country, including San Bernardino City Unified and Minneapolis public schools. She called on the school board to ask the district’s inspector general to audit the contracts awarded for the new system. “Los Angeles Unified has a history of undertaking expensive projects only to abandon them, squandering taxpayer dollars,” she said. Burbridge said the LAUSD conducted a lengthy evaluation process in which more than 100 people reviewed the software and consultants before choosing SAP. “We thought we were aware of the challenges, and we were hopeful we’d have a better experience than these other school districts,” Burbridge said. “However, at the end of the day, there are only so many payroll systems that are large enough to accommodate 100,000 employees, and sometimes you have to hold your nose and say yes, there are challenges with this. We thought we chose the best one.” naush.boghossian@dailynews.com (818) 713-3722 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Mourinho will wait to decide on Lukaku’s Cup final fitness

first_img0Shares0000Romelu Lukaku faces a late fitness test ahead of FA Cup final © AFP / Paul ELLISWATFORD, United Kingdom, May 18 – Jose Mourinho will wait until the last minute before deciding whether Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is fit to feature in Saturday’s FA Cup final against Chelsea.Lukaku has missed United’s last three matches after suffering an ankle injury against Arsenal in April. The Belgium striker is in a race against time to be fit for the Wembley showdown with his former club.And United manager Mourinho, possibly hoping to keep Chelsea guessing, said on Friday that he remains uncertain if Lukaku will be available.Mourinho will be able to call on French forward Anthony Martial, who has recovered from the knee injury he sustained in training.“Martial is fit. Lukaku we have to wait until the last moment. I don’t want to lie and say he doesn’t play or vice versa,” Mourinho told reporters at United’s hotel.It would be a significant blow to United’s hopes of winning the FA Cup for a record-equalling 13th time if Lukaku is unable to pass his late fitness test.Since Lukaku was sidelined, United have lacked a cutting edge and they scored only once in their last three games of the season.The 25-year-old energised United with a goal spree at the start of the season after arriving from Everton in a £75 million ($101 million) deal.Lukaku has scored 27 times for United in all competitions this season, making his first season at Old Trafford a success overall.But he went through a sustained barren patch — with one goal in 12 games — after opposing defences began to sit deeper to stop the Belgian hurting them with his pace.Mourinho was also forced to defend Lukaku from criticism by United fans frustrated at what they perceived as a lack of effort from their muscular forward.Lukaku got back on track at the start of 2018, but had scored just once in his last five appearances before picking up the injury that leaves his Cup final hopes of a knife-edge.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

‘Why not?’ FIFA boss says 48 teams ‘feasible’ for Qatar World Cup

first_img“We have decided… to increase the number of teams participating in the World Cup final tournaments from 32 to 48,” Infantino told the Asian Football Confederation’s annual congress in Kuala Lumpur.“It will happen in 2026. Will it happen in 2022? You know me. It is possible. It is possible. Why not?” he added.Infantino said an expanded tournament would see Asia’s allocation rise from 4.5 places to 8.5, raising cheers from the delegates assembled at a luxury hotel in the Malaysian capital.“You will have (a bigger) chance. It is possible. It is feasible. We are discussing with our Qatari friends. We are discussing with many other friends in the region. We hope we have it happen. We always have to try,” he said.Accommodating another 16 teams would vastly complicate Qatar’s task in preparing for the World Cup, which was awarded to the tiny desert state in 2010.Qatar has also been involved in a stand-off with neighbours Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt, who have cut off diplomatic relations and imposed a blockade on the resource-rich country, accusing it of endorsing terror activities.Hassan al-Thawadi, head of the 2022 organising body, told AFP that Qatar was studying the 48 teams proposal and would make a decision before qualifying gets under way.“We are still looking at the feasibility studies and we will be in a better position to provide a feedback in the future,” he said.“But it will be decided before the qualifications… sometime in the first quarter of next year.”He added that preparations remained on track despite the blockade, and that the budget of $200 billion for the entire infrastructure, including metro and expressway, has not been affected.“We are very happy and excited with the progress. It is on track. By 2020-2021 all our (eight) stadiums will be ready,” al-Thawadi said.“This is the first World Cup in the Middle East and is a perfect opportunity to bring people together and contribute to the process of healing,” he added.Ahead of FIFA’s presidential election next year, Infantino said 180 out of the 211 federations had given him their support.“You know there is an election coming. I have announced I will be a (presidential) candidate. I have received over 180 letters of support,” he said.“And when it comes to Asia, only a couple are missing.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000FIFA president Gianni Infantino hopes to expand the World Cup to 48 teams at the next edition in Qatar in 2022. © AFP / Mohd RASFANKUALAR LUMPUR, Malaysia, Oct 31 – FIFA president Gianni Infantino said expanding the 2022 World Cup to 48 teams was “feasible” on Wednesday, as hosts Qatar pledged to come to a decision in the early part of next year.Infantino said “Why not?” bring forward the expansion from 32 teams to 48, which is currently due at the 2026 tournament in the United States, Canada and Mexico.last_img read more

Arsenal and Tottenham poised for transfer tussle over Swiss wonderkid

first_img1 Arsenal and Tottenham could be set for a January transfer tussle for Switzerland striker Breel Embolo.The teenage forward, who plays his club football for FC Basel, appeared as a second half substitute during his country’s 2-0 defeat to England at Wembley on Tuesday night.He has scored three times so far this season in the Swiss League, following his 17-goal haul last term, and his rapid progress has alerted the north London giants.The 18-year-old is rated in the £10million bracket by his club, but that is unlikely to deter either Arsenal or Spurs as they consider a move in the winter transfer window.

first_img The Valley on ESPN3 Full Schedule Roster Box Score (HTML) Illinois State University 9/29/2017 – 7 p.m. Preview Buy Tickets Live Stats CHICAGO, Ill. – The Drake University volleyball team stepped out of conference to win its sixth-straight match Monday, Sept. 25, evening with a 3-0 win at Chicago State. The Bulldogs, who are currently leading the Missouri Valley Conference standings with a 2-0 record, improved to 13-3 overall on the season.Drake prevailed by set scores of 25-15, 25-15, 27-25, while hitting .343 as a team to mark the sixth-straight match the Bulldogs have hit .200 or better and the 12th this season.”I’m very pleased with the outcome tonight,” said Drake head coach Darrin McBroom. “We started out well and played a solid first two sets, but have to get better in the third set and not let up against teams. We played a low-error match on offense and I’m proud of that performance, but we have to get better a few things.”Senior Kyla Inderski (Urbandale, Iowa) led that charge by recording 15 kills on 26 attempts with just one error for a .538 hitting percentage. Her 15 kills also moved her into second place all-time in kills at Drake with 1,240 in her four-year career. Inderski added 11 digs for her eighth double-double of the season and fifth in a row.Senior Odessa Cody (Chicago, Ill.) and freshman Natalie Fry (Allen, Texas) also had efficient nights as Cody recorded five kills on nine attempts with no errors while Fry hit .600 with six kills. Paige Aspinwall (Dayton, Minn.) had 27 assists on a night where 40 of the team’s 44 kills came via assists. Defensively, Kylee Macke (Ankeny, Iowa) had 17 digs and Gillian Gergen (Janesville, Iowa) notched four blocks.Drake used a 7-0 run early in the first set to pull ahead and was never threatened in securing the 25-15 win. The Bulldogs’ offense kept clicking in the second set with the team hitting .480 to cruise to another 25-15 win. Following the intermission, the third set featured 10 ties and six lead changes before the Bulldogs came out on top. The Cougars used a late 4-0 run to force set point at 24-19. However, Drake responded with three combined kills from Inderski and Fry followed by three CSU errors to put the Bulldogs on top, 25-24. Another tie soon followed before a kill from Grace Schofield (Mundelein, Ill.) and a CSU error gave Drake the 27-25 advantage to win the set and match.”I have to give credit to our team coming back from a 24-19 deficit in the third set and playing perfect to close the match,” McBroom added.The Bulldogs resume MVC action this weekend when they welcome Illinois State and Bradley to the Knapp Center. The weekend series begins Friday, Sept. 29, against Illinois State at 7 p.m. followed by a Saturday, Sept. 30, contest against Bradley at 7 p.m.Print Friendly Versioncenter_img Story Links Watch Live Next Game: Box Score (PDF) last_img read more
