Gemma makes it four wins in a row

first_img England international Gemma Clews has tightened her grip on the Delamere Comboy Scratch Trophy with her fourth consecutive victory – winning every year since it started. Her latest victory, on her home course at Delamere Forest, Cheshire, was achieved with remarkable golf. She was 12-under for 36 holes, with two rounds of 67 and she won by two shots from girl international Lily May Humphreys. What’s more, she beat the best-ever field to play in the event, which is the first of the season’s prestigious women’s 36-hole scratch tournaments. It has been paired with the Formby Leveret to create a 72-hole event which attracts world ranking points – and top players. “This is my best win,” said Clews, 22, who signed off with an eagle three on the 36thhole. “It’s definitely special to win this one because of the support the club gives me. It means a lot.” She set off in great style with a bogey-free morning round, which included four birdies and an eagle on the par five 11th, where her three-wood shot finished 5ft from the hole. It gave her a two-shot lead over Humphreys at the halfway stage, but Clews was unaware of the state of play until she’d passed the 14thhole on her second round. Her afternoon round contained her only dropped shots of the day, with a double bogey five on the short fourth, but they were soon forgotten as she amassed six birdies and that closing eagle. “I knew I probably needed to make a birdie and I just tried for the eagle,” said Clews, who rolled in a 25-footer. “I thought if Lily had shot better, then fair play to her.” Humphreys, (Stoke by Nayland) matched Clews in the afternoon with a six-birdie 67, which she added to her opening 69.  The 15-year-old is the English U16 girls’ champion. Emily Toy (Carlyon Bay), a past English girls’ champion, was third with rounds of 73 71. Click here for full scores The Leveret will be played on 1 April at Formby Ladies’ Golf Club, Lancashire. Four other paired events have been created during the season to attract WAGR points.

Our lives need to be respected in this country

first_imgDear Editor,Medical doctors should not be the only ones to weigh in on the recent triple malpractice at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC). Of course, opinions from nurses, pharmacists, scientists and others ought to be carried by the media to foster knowledge, to reduce medical errors and ultimately improve healthcare.Further, scientists like me who are in biomedical research are in authority to speak and write on healthcare issues. Biomedical scientists advance clinical medicine through innovation and also contribute to medical articles in magazines, journals and newspapers. Stifling the opinions of people like me is shortsighted and it is one reason why our healthcare system remains primitive and deadly. Do we want to continue like this? I bet not.Editor, I have rightly concluded in my previous letter that intrathecal vincristine is lethal and that it induces a unique repertoire of symptoms. Editor, my knowledge and my experience in drug delivery have enabled me to do this. There is not even one single experiment in my 20 years of research where I did not deliver a drug. I have even safely delivered novel ones as well. The recent news reports from the GPHC about a week ago have confirmed my position regarding what happened to those children. I find it hard to believe that doctors failed to link the patient’s symptoms to the lethal administration of vincristine after the first error. They even went on to kill two others. Such errors occurred primarily because of a lack of knowledge, a lack of training in basic science research and bad attitudes.Moreover, I also know that adverse drug effects are generally reversible when molecules are given through the correct mode and at the right dose and at the right frequency. It makes sense to reason that well-characterised drugs like vincristine shouldn’t result in deaths much less three in a row in a single month. This line of reasoning prompted me to conclude that medical errors were responsible and the GPHC has confirmed this. I have no doubt drawn attention and brought clarity on the triple error at the GPHC. Now the GPHC owes it to the public to at least outline its plans in preventing such errors in the future. This is critical in restoring some level of confidence in our hospitals.My research has taken me into the territory of sample collection and data collection. To this end, I can’t swallow the autopsy findings. I can’t believe that 100 per cent of the autopsies turned out to be 100 per cent inconclusive in 100 per cent of the samples and in 100 per cent of the analysis. I know that autopsies are difficult but these numbers are still hard to swallow. In my opinion, they indicate problems with the patient’s samples. Editor, this needs to be probed. We need to hear why all of the autopsy results are inconclusive. It is my contention that if the appropriate samples haven’t been harvested or handled correctly then obviously the results will be 100 per cent inconclusive. I know that mass spectrometry analysis could detect this drug, the end products of this drug and any degraded products of this drug, particularly in sites where they do not belong. I have used this technique to detect molecules in low concentrations. Of course, the patient’s medical records could be correlated with the autopsy results in constructing the cause of death. The results from the autopsies are necessary to seal the cause of death. My logic is what is applied in both basic science research and in clinical settings to solve clinical problems.Editor, the public needs to know that medical doctors generally know very little about drugs. This is a fact. And this is why there are pharmacists. Medical doctors also need deeper scientific knowledge through biomedical research. They need to be creative. They need to work alongside PhDs and other professionals to enhance their knowledge. Such a collaborative atmosphere is necessary but it is absent in our healthcare system and this is another reason why healthcare in Guyana remains deadly. Translational research needs to be incorporated into our healthcare system to improve it and the oil wealth should be pumped into this. Clearly, our medical doctors are lacking and this is exactly what the triple manslaughter at the GPHC is telling us. To this end, I urge the media to carry the opinions of everyone. Our voices are educational and instrumental in moving our country forward. There is no single professional with all the answers to every medical problem.The Guyanese Government needs to understand the value of hiring scientists with PhD degrees in translational research. Through translational medicine, novel scientific knowledge is moved from the research bench to the bedside in improving patient care. Such an understanding and appreciation is lacking in Guyana. I have personally contributed to this area of biomedical research in a world class hospital and in a developed country for over 12 years but a third world Government is hell-bent on shutting me down so that it appoints its political supporters who are army officers, book-keepers and doctors to key positions within the healthcare system. What can these people contribute to healthcare? They contribute absolutely nothing and they waste scarce tax dollars and cost lives. As citizens, we need to hammer away at these issues to transform the healthcare system into one that can save lives. Government must also move our drugs into proper storage to improve healthcare and to save lives. The Sussex Street bottom house and the rodent-infested hotel facilities can never be storage facilities for drugs.Editor, here is a view into how attitudes in underdeveloped countries have turned our healthcare system into one that is deadly.The APNU/PNC/AFC Government has even bought foreign medical coverage for its Cabinet members on tax dollars it drains from the poor while it ignores the troubles within our deadly healthcare system. A law is needed to force Government to use the deadly healthcare as its citizens. Government, every life is equal. This kind of third world mentality has got to go for us to see improvements in the Guyanese healthcare system.In underdeveloped countries like Guyana, doctors expose oversized egos and bark at patients and violate patients by injecting them with drugs without even explaining the nature of the treatment. This is unacceptable. I must inform Government that I also have those psychology degrees which position me to easily spot its dysfunction and I will continue to call them out for the sake of humanity. And in harking back to these children killed at the GPHC, I must urge their parents to take legal action to prevent medical malpractice in our hospitals. Our lives need to be respected in this country.Sincerely,Dr Annie Baliramlast_img read more

Unfilled breaches causing flooding again

first_imgDespite the commencement of rehabilitation works to correct a dam breach in the backlands of Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara, flooding continues to plague inhabitants along Company Dam, New Providence. According to reports received by this publication on Thursday, when high tides come in, the community is flooded.It was only on Friday last that the Mahaica Mahaicony Abary-Agricultural Developmental Authority (MMA-ADA) had undertaken to rehabilitate repairs to two major breaches along the Perth Canal. As it stands currently, while works have been ongoing sporadically, sections of the breaches are not yet closed, resulting in flooding from the high tides.One resident told Guyana Times his yard normally floods and he has is not able to replant any of his subsistence crops that perished when the flood waters inundated the area. He explained that when the tides come in the lands become flooded and when it goes out the water would eventually recede but poodles would remain.“No plants can’t grow back – I used to plant bora, ochro, bulanger,” the resident who works as a labourer noted. It was further explained that this situation has added to the difficulties which some residents have been encountering in finding employment.The flood waters are also affecting farmers in areas along Branch Road, Mahaicony who have the expensive undertaking of pumping out flood waters.During the last month Guyana Times had been highlighting that the unrepaired breach flooded hundreds of acres of farmlands during high tides as well as several house lots along Company Dam, New Providence.This newspaper was told Monday that MMA-ADA had deployed a hymac in the canal on Friday to commence corrective works but setbacks have delayed the rehabilitation.When Guyana Times contacted the farmers who were adversely affected, they related that they are overjoyed that works have begun but noted that some flood-waters would still come up on their lands.General Manager of MMA-ADA Aubrey Charles when contacted last week confirmed that works to repair the breach had begun. Based on his assessment, he noted that some months after the dam was constructed, it settled and its height was reduced.“After the settlement, the height of the dam was below the designed level,” Charles had told this publication.The General Manager also said the spring tide overflow caused soil erosions which facilitated widening of the breaches, occasioning heavy flooding.The dam at Perth Canal was rehabilitated around seven months ago when the dry weather caused by El Niño had prevailed but it collapsed shortly after.The farmers told Guyana Times they had made several appeals to the MMA-ADA to repair the broken sections but their repeated calls went unheeded.They expressed frustration over the fact that the recent El Niño period was the ideal time to have done the repairs but nothing was done to assist them. Now that the rainy season has started, they lamented they have to suffer losses yet again.Meanwhile, this publication was made aware that MMA-ADA has visited areas in Branch Road, Mahaica, and works were conducted to correct a malfunctioning pump which had caused flooding in the area. It is unclear if the magnitude of corrective works in the areas has been responsible for the stalled works.Water being pumped off farmlands earlier this monthlast_img read more

Orange Liberia Launches 4G Outside of Monrovia

first_imgOrange Liberia has officially announced the launch of “Liberia’s first 4G LTE network outside of Monrovia.” The company celebrated the launch of the LTE network in Kakata, Margibi County, over the weekend at a colorful program held in the City Hall.Making the keynote address at the launching program, Orange’s Director for Government & Legal Affairs, Mr. William F. Saamoi Jr. told the audience that Orange Liberia was rolling out the high speed internet network in Kakata as part of a larger vision of Mr. Bruno Mettling, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Orange Group and Chairman & CEO of Orange MEA (Middle East and Africa). Said Mr. Saamoi: “During his speech at the launching, Mr. Mettling promised that Orange would begin to invest heavily to ensure that the LTE high speed network would be deployed in all major cities outside of Monrovia. True to that promise, we are here today to officially launch the first ever 4G LTE network outside of Monrovia.”Mr. Saamoi promised that the launch of 4G LTE network in Kakata would be followed by successive launches of new 4G LTE networks in cities across the country.   He stressed that Orange was investing in moving the technology, not only because of the company’s view that ‘Monrovia is not Liberia,’ but also because of the recognition of how the high-speed network will transform the way people live and do business.   “Our dream is that the people of Kakata will now be able to connect with the world, in real time, for business, agriculture, e-commerce, education, health and more without having to leave the comfort of their homes,” Mr. Saamoi said.In response, officials of Margibi County praised Orange for its efforts. Margibi County Superintendent John Buway recognized Orange’s many contributions to the city over time. He recalled support for the C.H. Rennie Hospital during the Ebola crisis as well as Orange’s ongoing support to the County’s community radio stations.   “Orange has always been there for us and this is another example of Orange going the extra mile for the Liberian people,” the Superintendent said.Both the Mayor of the City of Kakata, Mr. Eddie Murphy and Margibi’s District #3 Representative, Hon. Stephen S. Kafi hailed the launch of 4G LTE in Kakata City. Mayor Murphy said: “We appreciate the effort and development. Your presence here today demonstrates that you are truly a company for the Liberian people. We know that this network will certainly make a difference for the people of Kakata.”Hon. Kafi encouraged students in Kakata to take advantage of the 4G LTE service to better their education by using the internet as a library and research tool to enhance their education.As promised, Orange will, over the coming weeks and months, roll out additional 4G LTE sites across the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Cenovus says Alberta production curtailments are working, reports Q1 profit

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – Cenovus Energy Inc. reported a profit of $110 million in its first quarter compared with a loss a year ago as it benefited from improved prices for western Canadian oil.The company says the improvement in prices for western Canadian oil due to the Alberta government’s curtailment program more than offset the impact of reduced production and increased operating costs during the first quarter.Cenovus says its profit amounted to nine cents per share for the three months ended March 31, compared with a loss of $654 million or 53 cents per share a year ago.- Advertisement -Gross sales totalled nearly $5.2 billion, up from $4.7 billion in the same quarter last year.Cenovus reported first-quarter oil sands production of 342,980 barrels per day, down five percent compared with a year ago, while operating costs rose to $9.06 per barrel compared with $8.78 a year ago.Production from the company’s Deep Basin assets averaged 104,290 barrels of oil equivalent per day, down 18 percent from a year ago due to the sale of its Pipestone business, lower capital investment, natural declines and weather-related outages.Advertisementlast_img read more

Revealed! Liverpool’s ideal XI this season featuring six superb Klopp signings

first_img 3. Nevan Subotic (centre back) – Middlesbrough have reportedly put in a shock bid, but there will be plenty of clubs vying for Subotic’s possible signing over the summer. He has struggled with injury throughout his career, which may persuade Dortmund to sell, but when fit he is among the best centre-backs in the Bundesliga. Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho would certainly need to up their game with Subotic at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp may have suffered the disappointment of losing two cup finals in his first (not quite full) season with Liverpool, but his achievements so far have breathed fresh belief around Anfield.The German has been rewarded with a new, extended contract, and he knows exactly what he wants to achieve with Liverpool, which also means he knows his squad requires new additions.So far the German has successfully lured Joel Matip, Loris Karius and Sadio Mane to the club, and more new faces are expected over the next two months.Last season Klopp was working with a group of players signed by previous Liverpool managers, but now he will want to build a team in his mould.Klopp is building his ideal XI at Anfield, and with this in mind, we’ve put together a line up we think could be exactly what the former Borussia Dortmund is after for the incoming campaign.Check out the XI by viewing the slideshow above, and let us know which transfer targets you believe would help Klopp achieve the line up he wants at Liverpool…‘LIVERPOOL TO SELL EIGHT PLAYERS?’ CLICK HERE TO SEE THE STORY AND WHO COULD LEAVE ANFIELD THIS SUMMER 11 11 11 4. Joel Matip (centre back) – Matip, who joins Liverpool on a free transfer, was officially unveiled earlier this week and is expected to be thrown straight into action by Klopp. He appears to be a shrewd signing and his capture demonstrates Klopp’s ability to attract talent. 8. Roberto Firmino (attacking midfield) – After a challenging start under Brendan Rodgers, Firmino’s quality emerged with Klopp’s management and he began to score regularly. His skill, work rate and eye for the back of the net 11 11 11 6. Emre Can (centre midfield) – Can has quickly established himself as a fan-favourite at Anfield, and last season became one of the first names on Klopp’s team sheet. His performances are expected to only improve and he can help the Reds boss the midfield area. 10. Philippe Coutinho (attacking left) – Coutinho is capable of producing world class, magical match-winning moments. More is expected of him and Klopp will demand consistency in his influence, but the Brazilian has the ability to unlock the best defences. 11 5. Ben Chilwell (left back) – Liverpool are reportedly keen on the Foxes youngster, but the Premier League champions aren’t making negotiations easy. It seems, though, that this is the player Klopp wants to fight Alberto Moreno for his spot. And boy does Moreno need to up his game. 7. Blaise Matuidi (centre midfield) – Matuidi is reportedly open to moving to the Premier League this summer, and after an impressive Euro 2016 campaign for France, won’t be short of offers. He could be the ideal midfield foil for Can, providing the kind of box-to-box athleticism needed for ‘heavy metal football’. 11 11 2. Nathaniel Clyne (right back) – Clyne was one of Liverpool’s most consistent players last term, comfortably settling into life at Anfield. Still only 25, the England international looks to be the long-term answer in this position. 9. Sadio Mane (attacking right) – Given Klopp’s attacking options, some were surprised by the Reds’ decision to spend £34m on Mane. Klopp, however, obviously sees the Senegalese international as perfect for his favoured attacking formation. 11 1. Loris Karius (goalkeeper) – see the full possible ideal Liverpool XI by clicking the arrow above, right – With Klopp agreeing a deal for Karius, Mignolet’s time could be up on Merseyside. The pair will be battling for the no.1 spot over pre-season. 11. Alexandre Lacazette (striker) – At present Klopp has Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and Christian Benteke to choose from as his main frontman (Danny Ings is not really suited to that role, and the less said about Mario Balotelli the better). It is obvious Klopp does not really rate Benteke in the role, while Sturridge has never truly convinced as an out-and-out striker (not to mention his injury issues), while Origi can’t be expected to lead the line all season. Lacazette is said to be on the radar of many a Premier League club this summer, for good reason. The Frenchman scored 21 goals in Ligue 1 last season. 11last_img read more
