The Amerindian hostel, which houses Indigenous persons who are in the city seeking medical attention and other services, will be rehabilitated in coming months.Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Minister Sydney Allicock, during the contract signing ceremony on Wednesday, noted that the expansion of the current building, which is located on Princes Street, Georgetown, was necessary to facilitate the large influx of individuals who would stay there throughout the year.According to the Minister, the expansion works are expected to be completed inIndigenous Peoples’ Affairs Minister Sydney Allicock presenting the contract to a representative of Sattaur Mohammed and Sons Constructionfour months.“The residence is in heavy demand and it is really choked without these facilities. It is expected that within four months from now we will have more space, as we would have already begun to see in this facility,” he stated.In the 2015-2016 period, the Indigenous residence hosted a Parliamentary Sectoral Committee on Social Services whereby several recommendations were made which prompted the Ministry to focus on the issues that were affecting the residents.Upgrades were made to the main dining area; among the other works were repairs to washrooms and external works, rehabilitation of the male and female dormitories, maintenance of fence, and landfilling, all of which were completed in 2017.Last year, the facility received a much-needed boost in the area of transportation when it acquired a minibus, which is being used to transport patients to and from the hospital.

6 Following news that Tottenham Hotspur will be unable to move into their new stadium for the start of the 2017/18 season, there have been numerous reports speculating at where the north Londoners could play for the campaign.Wembley Stadium and even MK Dons’ Stadium:MK have both been uttered as potential destinations, but it is the suggestion that Spurs could lodge with bitter rivals Arsenal that has caught the imagination most.Gunners’ boss Arsene Wenger even joked that it is a ‘solution’, but while it would leave a number of fans furious, it’s not the first time that rivals have shared the same turf.Click the arrow to see more examples.Tottenham fans, where do you think you should play your home matches for the 2017/18 season? Comment below… 6 6 4. QPR and Fulham shared Loftus Road during 2002/03 – While they may not be the most bitter of rivals, matches between QPR and Fulham have developed a little needle over recent years. However, back in 2002 Rangers decision to rent out Loftus Road to Fulham was seen as a neighbourly and financially necessary move. QPR were in need of additional income and Fulham were in need of a home as Craven Cottage was being redeveloped. 6 3. Man City and Man United shared Maine Road following the Second World War – It was not uncommon to see neighbouring clubs share grounds during wartime and the same happened in Manchester. With Old Trafford damaged during a blitz raid, United moved into Citys Maine Road stadium following the end of the conflict, and duly set about smashing not only the grounds attendance, but the record attendance for a league game as 83,260 people crammed in to watch United play Arsenal in 1948. 6 2. Everton and Liverpool’s Anfield connection – The story of Anfield is a slightly muddy one. Built for the citys only club at the time, Anfield was the celebrated home of Everton for seven years, before a dispute with the owner of the land, John Orrell, over rising rent culminated in the Toffees moving to what became Goodison Park. In their place a newly-created club known as Liverpool FC were handed the keys to the ground. 6 5. Tottenham and Arsenal shared White Hart Lane during World War Two – It wouldnt be the first time that the bitter rivals have shared the same stadium. In fact it would be the THIRD time this has happened. The longest period came during the Second World War, when Arsenal were forced to up roots and travel down the Seven Sisters road to White Hart Lane. With Highbury commissioned by the army, the Gunners headed to the Lane. Their first match on enemy turf was on 21 October 1939 when they beat Charlton 8-4 in a Football League South A Division game. In total, Arsenal played 133 games at White Hart Lane during wartime. 6. Did you know Man United played a home game at Liverpool’s home ground? Click the arrow to find out about more surprising ‘ground shares’, including Spurs, Arsenal, Man City and more! – Back in August 1971, United played Arsenal at home at Anfield. The FA punished the Red Devils for crowd trouble at Old Trafford by ordering them to play their first two home matches of the 1971/72 season at other grounds, with one taking place on Merseyside and the other at Stoke City’s Victoria Ground. United beat Arsenal 3-1 in front of the Kop. 1. Arsenal welcomed Tottenham to Highbury during the First World War – By allowing Arsenal to share their ground, Spurs were in fact repaying their neighbours hospitality from 23 years previous when the Gunners offered shelter to their rivals at the height of the First World Ward. Two years after the outbreak of conflict, White Hart Lane was commandeered by the military and Spurs ended up alternating their home matches between Highbury and Clapton Orients ground. Their first home match at Highbury was on 16 September 1916, where they lost 3-2 to Luton Town. During this period they played a total of 32 home games at Arsenals ground.
The following day he began his new job as a member of manager Jose Mourinho’s coaching staff, with this weekend’s clash against Chelsea at Wembley his first assignment.“It changes overnight,” Carrick said. “I am not training this week. I am going to jump on the staff.”The 36-year-old had other options as he approached the end of his playing career but the chance to work under Mourinho was too good to refuse.“A couple of years ago I thought maybe it would be a good thing to spend time with the family, but then it’s about timing and opportunities,” said Carrick, who made 464 appearances for United over 12 years after earlier spells with West Ham and Tottenham.“You never know what is going to be around the corner. As soon as this came up I didn’t think twice.“He is one of the best, he’s been around for many years and it all fits in. I’ve been at this club, and it is such a great club, so I obviously know the club and the manager.”Carrick said he is considering moving into management one day but it is not something he intends to push for yet.The midfielder was given a guard of honour by both teams on Sunday and had a hand in the only goal of the game, playing Juan Mata in behind the defence for the Spaniard to tee up Marcus Rashford.He was substituted late in the game to a huge ovation, with supporters recognising his role in five Premier League title successes and one Champions League triumph.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Michael Carrick applauds the Old Trafford crowd at the end of the English Premier League match between Manchester United and Watford on May 13, 2018 © AFP / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, May 15 – Michael Carrick is making an immediate switch from Manchester United’s playing squad to the coaching team in time for Saturday’s FA Cup final against Chelsea.The former England midfielder hung up his boots on Sunday after United’s final Premier League game of the season against Watford.

With over 1,000 camps taking place in Ireland and overseas, and over 80,000 children aged 6 – 13 years participating, the Vhi GAA Cúl Camps are the most popular children’s sporting camps in the country. This is the sixth year of the massively popular Vhi GAA Cúl Camps and GAA heroes Dublin Hurling Manager Anthony Daly and Kildare Football Manager Kieran McGeeney were on-hand to launch the event in their official capacity as Vhi GAA Cúl camps ambassadors. The ambassadors will travel around the summer camps visiting the participants and passing on valuable tips and advice.Now in its sixth year, the Vhi GAA Cúl Camps is a nationally co-ordinated programme which aims to encourage primary school children between the ages of 6 and 13, to develop sporting skills irrespective of their skill level or ability and also to develop a sense of sporting fair play and personal achievement by participating in various Gaelic games, in a fun, non competitive environment. Speaking at the launch, GAA President Criostóir Ó Cuana said; “The Vhi GAA Cúl Camps initiative is an excellent venture that allows young children across the country to engage with our games, in some cases for the first time. Key to the success of the GAA is participation at all levels and a prime example of this is the Vhi GAA Cúl Camps, where primary school children participate alongside coaches and GAA heroes. Hopefully learning the skills along the way will make them lifelong GAA supporters.”Declan Moran, Director of Marketing and Business Development, Vhi Healthcare commented; “The Vhi GAA Cúl Camps are a marvellous example of the power of sport in our personal lives and in the wider community. By getting children involved in the GAA early in their lives they are putting the building blocks in place for healthy living, as well as developing a sense of community that is part and parcel of GAA activities right throughout the country. “This year the Vhi and GAA decided to lower the age that children could register to six years old as we have seen over the past five years that the skills picked up in the Vhi GAA Cúl Camps; healthy living, exercise, a respect for others and a sense of fair play can be accessed and applied by the youngest members of our communities across the country”The 2011 Vhi GAA Cúl Camps are expected to be extremely popular with huge demand already coming through and parents are advised to book early to ensure they get a place at the camp of their choice. Commenting on the Vhi GAA Cúl Camps, Anthony Daly, Dublin Hurling Manager, said: “This is my third year working with the Vhi GAA Cúl Camps as an ambassador for the programme and I am looking forward to being involved again this year. I believe that the camps are a vital initiative to ensuring the continued development and growth of GAA in clubs around the country. I visited a number of camps last year in my role as ambassador and I was delighted to see the level of enthusiasm that the children taken part in them had for GAA. I have no doubt 2011 will be no different.” Online booking now open at www.gaa.ie or www.vhiculcamps.gaa.ieDONEGAL NORTHERN BOARD GAA NOTES was last modified: April 18th, 2011 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:Northern Board GAA notes

Scientists continue to find new things that undermine commonly-held beliefs about health and the environment. For example,Shower power: Drinking more and showering less may not help conserve water, say Australian scientists reported by EurekAlert. Sun bath: We were always warned to keep out of the midday sun to avoid cancer, right? Science Daily talks about Manchester scientists saying we need that midday sun exposure for Vitamin D production. All in moderation, of course; skin cancer is still a risk.Bone appetit: Contrary to earlier beliefs, exercise to reduce fat does not hurt your bones, says EurekAlert. It can even increase bone mass in senior citizens.Zitgeist: Mineral oil doesn’t give you zits, says another article on EurekAlert – unless it’s the industrial grade stuff.Schism: Not as many people are schizophrenic as previously thought, says EurekAlert. Now you need another excuse.One finding did match common-sense expectations. An article in Science1 found that youths who watch gun violence are more apt to engage in violent behavior (see also EurekAlert report).1Bingenheimer et al., “Firearm Violence Exposure and Serious Violent Behavior,” Science, Vol 308, Issue 5726, 1323-1326, 27 May 2005, [DOI: 10.1126/science.1110096].The point is not that any of these reports are the last word on those subjects, but if scientists cannot get things right about everyday issues regarding our daily habits, how can they presume to tell us about things millions of years ago?(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
17 October 2005The South African .za Domain Name Authority (.zaDNA) has launched a public consultation process to ensure management of the country’s domain name is in line with global practice.The .za domain is South Africa’s cyber address code, used to identify local e-mail addresses and websites.The .zaDNA, established in terms of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act of 2002, is responsible for the administration and management of the .za internet domain.The domain name discussion document, launched in Johannesburg in September, aims to get the South African public involved in creating a structured model for the domain name space, in line with global practice, establishing policies relevant to a maturing internet, ensuring growth of the internet and narrowing the digital divide.“The purpose of the process is to obtain comment and input on the structure of the .za domain and to engage a wide range of stakeholders in a far broader process regarding its use, including access, education and outreach,” the authority said.“We want this to be in line with the global practice and ensure internet growth locally,” said .zaDNA chairperson Hasmukh Gajjar. “We want to close the gap in the digital divide and have as many parties involve in the process as possible.”Other issues are how the South African domain name should be structured, including whether it should be opened up for second-level registrations, and who should administer the database of .za domains.The document also calls for input about whether subdomains – gov.za, org.za, ac.za and so on – should be administered by a centralised organisation, or by multiple registries.“The growth of the internet in South Africa was not a formal, structured process and the structure and management of the domains used to identify and address users and infrastructure developed through a largely informal process,” the document says.“The ad hoc efforts of the pioneers are no longer appropriate in an environment where the internet has become a communications mechanism.”Communications Minister Ivy Matsepe-Cassaburri has asked the authority to educate the public about the use of the domain name. She said the campaign should reach all South Africans, and should be in a language that people outside the internet community can understand.“We are a country that is continuously changing, so it is imperative that all be involved in the process,” she said.The .zaDNA hopes the consultative process will come up with ways to narrow the digital divide.“This divide exists not only in respect of access to technology but also in respect of the knowledge regarding the technology,” its document says.“There are a number of policy considerations which are crucial for the ongoing growth of the internet community in our country as well as the stability of the existing infrastructure. The authority may need to consider education and outreach programmes to narrow the digital divide.”Other issues to be considered include:funding ongoing internet growth,including previously excluded communities as practitioners and entrepreneurs,education and skills development, andinternational trends around governance, policy formulation and expansion.Interested people have until the end of January 2006 to make submissions. Comments can be posted to Suite 175, Postnet x15, Menlo Park, 0102; e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org; or faxed to +27 (0)12 361 9515.
