“Nothing extravagant, lavish or out of kilter

first_imgPension Bill 2016Former Prime Minister Hamilton Green on Monday took a stand against criticismsFormer Prime Minister Hamilton Greenthat he did not deserve the annual $20 million former Prime Minister’s pension he has requested, saying that it was nothing out of the ordinary.Green, a former Mayor of Georgetown and Prime Minister under the People’s National Congress (PNC) 1985-1992 regime, said that his claims and request for his pension was enshrined in the law.He told Journalists that the issue, which has already been condemned by the Guyana Human Rights Association (GHRA) and Transparency Institute of Guyana Inc (TIGI), needed to be put into its correct perspective, since it has been misconceived.“In every civilised country, there are provisions made for pension and special benefits for former Presidents and Prime Ministers, however styled. This is universal application and there is nothing unique about it.”Green said prior to the 2011 legislation, Government, since independence, had provided pensions and benefits, sometimes informally to former Presidents and Prime Ministers.He mentioned the provisions that were made to former President Arthur Chung, which included security, transportation and housing. He said the principles were accepted by the then new People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Administration and so it was confusing that the now Opposition was trying to shoot down his request.He said the problem started because when the then Government took the matter to Parliament, it only catered for pensions and benefits for former Presidents.He had portions of that Bill read to members of the media. The Bill stated that “every person who has held the office of President and Prime Minister having held office on or after 16 December 1966 and 22 December 1965 respectively, and ceases after such date to be President or Prime Minister, shall be paid a pension under this act with effect from the date on which he ceases to be President or Prime Minister as the case may be and subject to subsection 2 shall continue to be paid during the lifetime of that person.”Green said he had the Bill read because there were some “soothsayers” who claimed that the pension was a special provision for “someone named Hamilton Green”.“I don’t think that what is happening now can be considered extravagant, or lavish or out of kilter with the rest of the world,” Green told the media.The TIGI on Sunday contended that the Hamilton Green Pension Bill was vulgar and politically partisan, reeked of cronyism and lacked basis for justification.The Bill, which was read for the first time on Monday, provides for Green to be paid a pension “based on the salary paid to the Prime Minister, as though he actually earned the said salary, taking into consideration his record of service as a legislator”.It also provides for Green to receive all benefits provided for by the Former President (Benefits and Other Facilities) Act 2015. The value of these benefits are an annual pension of $20,580,000, other benefits to the value of $3.1 million annually, including two vehicles provided for and maintained by the State and two first-class annual airfaresAdditionally, the former Prime Minister, who served in the position from 1985 to 1992, also qualifies for an ex-parliamentarian pension together with whatever benefits accrued from his period as Mayor of Georgetown.last_img read more

Pep most immature I’ve had, says Zlatan

first_img0Shares0000Zlatan Ibrahimovic listens to Pep Guardiola during a past training session at Barcelona. PHOTO/SkyMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 13- Zlatan Ibrahimovic has branded Pep Guardiola “immature” over his man-management during their time together at Barcelona.The 36-year-old joined Guardiola at the Nou Camp in 2009 from Inter Milan and became frustrated with a lack of first-team opportunities, claiming the Spaniard decided to build his team around Lionel Messi. Guardiola handed Ibrahimovic 29 appearances during their one-year stint together in Catalonia with the former Sweden international scoring 16 times from 23 starts.Following an impressive start to life in Spain for Ibrahimovic, the pair’s relationship became fractured when the striker confronted Guardiola for altering his tactics.“The first six months were perfect, then the manager changed system, tactics and it didn’t work for me,” Ibrahimovic told Sky in Italy. “I went to talk to him. I’m here to talk, if you think it’s for another reason then we can’t talk.“I said: ‘I believe that you are sacrificing some players for one player, Messi’. He said: ‘I don’t think this is the case but I understand what you say. I will take care of it, no problem, I will solve everything’. I thought it would be OK.“The following game I was on the bench. I don’t say anything, I work,” Ibrahimovic added.“Second match bench again. I thought he solved it well and he was not talking to me or explaining. Third match bench. Then the fourth match comes and bench again.“I think something is strange. From that moment he stopped talking to me, looking at me. I go into a room and he walks out of it. He was not a bad person, but the most immature I’ve had because a man solves his problems.”The duo met on Sunday when Manchester City extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to 11 points following a 2-1 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.-By Sky Sports–0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Salah shines as Liverpool sink Arsenal, Rashford penalty woe in Man Utd shocker

first_imgLiverpool sit at the top of the Premier League with the last 100 percent record, three points clear of Arsenal, who saw their two-match winning streak ruined by a fatal combination of sloppy defending and poor finishing at Anfield.Arsenal boss Unai Emery will be furious that Reds defender Matip was able to head home from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s 41st-minute corner.And Arsenal were guilty of another needless error four minutes after half-time when former Chelsea defender David Luiz tugged at Salah, conceding a penalty that the Egypt forward drove home for his second goal of the season.Salah put talk of Arsenal’s revival in perspective when he accelerated away from Luiz and Nacho Monreal before finishing off a superb solo strike in the 59th minute.Lucas Torreira got one back in the 85th minute, but it was too late for an Arsenal escape act.“We were full of power, energy and greed, passion, all what you need to have against a good team like Arsenal,” Klopp said.“We were a bit too greedy and didn’t split the runs a bit, which we talked about, but overall we were really in charge of the game.”On Monday, Manchester United were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw at Wolves after Paul Pogba’s penalty was saved by Rui Patricio when the France star insisted on taking over spot-kick duties from Rashford.But Rashford fared no better when he hit a post from the spot in the second half against Palace at Old Trafford, putting United on course for their first defeat of the Premier League season as Patrick van Aanholt grabbed the visitors a 2-1 win in stoppage-time.Palace took the lead in the 32nd minute as Jeffrey Schlupp flicked on to Jordan Ayew, who was played onside by the slow-to-react Harry Maguire and side-footed past David de Gea for Palace’s first goal of the season.When Scott McTominay was fouled, Rashford, who had scored a penalty against Chelsea in the first game of the campaign, took the ball as Pogba looked on, but the England striker’s spot-kick cannoned back off the woodwork.Former Swansea midfielder Daniel James looked to have spared Rashford’s blushes when he bagged his second goal for United with a fine finish in the 89th minute.But a terrible blunder by United ‘keeper De Gea proved decisive in the third minute of added time as the Spaniard allowed van Aanholt’s shot to squeeze under him at the near post.– Missed opportunities –Manchester United midfielder Daniel James vies with Crystal Palace’s Patrick van Aanholt © AFP / Lindsey ParnabyIt was Palace’s first league win over United since May 1991 and their first league victory at Old Trafford since December 1989.“Two games, two missed penalties. It’s part and parcel of it. If we keep putting ourselves in those positions we will get more penalties and we will score,” United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.“We weren’t clinical enough in front of goal. We defended poorly at times and it cost us.”Tammy Abraham fired Chelsea to their first win of the Frank Lampard era as the young striker’s double clinched a 3-2 victory against Norwich.Lampard had gone three games without a victory in all competitions since he took over as Chelsea manager, but the Blues legend finally got off the mark thanks to his faith in Abraham.Abraham had failed to score in his three previous appearances this term, but the 21-year-old striker bagged his first goal for the club to put Chelsea ahead at Carrow Road.A pulsating encounter saw Todd Cantwell equalise for Norwich before Mason Mount restored Chelsea’s advantage.Teemu Pukki’s fifth goal in three games this season brought Norwich back on level terms before half-time, only for Abraham to give Chelsea the points with his predatory second-half finish.Leicester got their first victory of the campaign as they beat Sheffield United 2-1 at Bramall Lane.Sebastien Haller’s first goals for West Ham ensured his side cruised to a 3-1 victory at Watford, while Southampton won 2-0 at 10-man Brighton.0Shares0000(Visited 24 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah celebrates after scoring his second goal against Arsenal © AFP / Ben STANSALLLondon, United Kingdom, Aug 24 – Liverpool extended their perfect start to the Premier League season as Mohamed Salah inspired an impressive 3-1 win over Arsenal, while Manchester United suffered fresh penalty woe through Marcus Rashford in their shock home defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday.Jurgen Klopp’s title challengers made it three successive victories thanks to Joel Matip’s opener and a brace from Salah, one a stunning solo effort.last_img read more

Study: Popular prostate pill has little effect on symptoms

first_img The new study recruited men over 49 with enlarged prostates who had moderate to severe symptoms. They took 160 milligrams of saw palmetto twice a day or similar-looking dummy capsules. At each visit, they filled out a symptoms survey and their urine flow was measured. After a year, there was no significant difference between the groups in symptom changes or other measures, the researchers reported. Bent said the dummy capsule was carefully designed to match the brown color, bitter taste and strong odor of the extract. At the end of the study, 40 percent in the saw palmetto group and 46 percent in the comparison group thought they were getting the extract, showing it was well disguised. “It’s a theory of ours, but we think that that might be one of the reasons that our study didn’t work, whereas prior studies did work,” Bent said, suggesting that men in other studies may have figured out they were getting a placebo. A larger study of herbal remedies, including saw palmetto, is in the final planning stages. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card The findings are published in today’s New England Journal of Medicine. The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder. Benign enlargement is a common condition as men age, and it causes problems with urination. This condition has nothing to do with prostate cancer. The saw palmetto is a small palm native to the southeastern United States. The extract comes from its olive-size berries and is sold over-the-counter in capsule form. It is the third-highest-selling herbal dietary supplement in the U.S., after garlic and echinacea, according to the American Botanical Council. Unlike prescription drugs, dietary supplements do not need government approval. Bent said he and his colleagues picked saw palmetto to study because of its widespread use and positive findings from previous studies, which were smaller and shorter than his federally funded research. Some of his colleagues have received fees or support from drug makers. NEW YORK – A popular herbal pill used by millions of men doesn’t reduce the frequent urge to go to the bathroom or other annoying symptoms of an enlarged prostate, a rigorous new study concludes. The yearlong research found the plant extract, saw palmetto, was no more effective than dummy capsules in easing symptoms for the 225 men in the study. The results contrast with previous research that showed it helped. “This certainly sheds some doubt on whether the product’s effective and suggests that it might not work,” said the lead researcher, Dr. Stephen Bent, of the San Francisco VA Medical Center. More than 2 million American men take the herb to treat an enlarged prostate and it is widely used in Europe, the researchers said. Until their results are confirmed by more studies, men who take saw palmetto and feel it works should probably keep using it, Bent said. last_img read more
