They were all decked in their brightly coloured Indian garments as they gyrated to the sound of tassa drumming along the path.The mini-rally as it moved along the Essequibo CoastWhile in the compound of the Sparta Madir, the audience was treated to a rich cultural programme comprising dances, skits, poems and, more importantly, a brief lecture on how the first batch of East Indians arrived on Guyana’s shores 180 years ago.This was done by Pandit Parmeshwar, while another prominent figure, Basir, reflected on the many struggles our fore-parents endured on the sugar plantations.In addition, the children and their parents benefited from a mini-exhibition showcasing foods, tools, musical instruments, religious texts, pictures, and other items brought to Guyana by the East Indians when they arrived.
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the powerful Los Angeles Unified teachers union have spent close to $1.9 million in the past month battling for control of the district’s board, according to campaign finance reports filed Friday. In the mayor’s campaign to replace two union-backed incumbents with his allies in next month’s election, Villaraigosa’s Partnership for Better Schools contributed about $975,000 since late January, filings show. In the same period, United Teachers Los Angeles kept pace by spending $900,000 to support its two candidates, incumbents Jon Lauritzen and Marguerite LaMotte. The hefty contributions have set the stage for a crushing final days before the March 6 election. Both sides are expected to pull out all the stops and pour even more funds into the matchups as Villaraigosa seeks district influence while his legislative effort to take partial control languishes in court. And his committee still has $900,000 in cash on hand to spend on the three candidates the mayor supports – Tamar Galatzan, Yolie Flores Aguilar and Richard Vladovic – with last-minute television ads, mailers and automated phone calls. “Who’s going to have control of the school board is at stake here,” said Raphael Sonenshein, political science professor at California State University, Fullerton. If Villaraigosa wins either the San Fernando Valley seat or the South Los Angeles seat, it is widely believed he will have majority sway on the board. Still, because of his close ties to the union, the battle for board seats is likely to be restrained. “This is a three-sided battle – the union has ties to the school board and to the mayor,” Sonenshein said. “In light of that, the union doesn’t have an interest in getting mortally at war with either one.” While contributions for candidates backed by the mayor and the union generally mirrored expectations, candidate Johnathan Williams showed surprisingly deep pockets. Williams, who is not backed by either the mayor or the union, collected $590,500 from individuals and groups nationwide who support public-school reform. Contribution flow Among the contributions to him was $100,000 from Reed Hastings, chief executive of Netflix; $25,000 from William Cronk III, former president of Dreyer’s Ice Cream; $15,000 from billionaire philanthropist Eli Broad; $50,000 from Gregory B. Penner, who served as a senior vice president of Wal-Mart; and $80,000 from former L.A. Mayor Richard Riordan. Williams, a leader in the charter-school community, started the first independent charter school in Los Angeles, Accelerated Charter School. In 2001, it was named the best elementary school in the nation by Time magazine. The implications of the type of financial support Williams has garnered nationally are noteworthy, Sonenshein said. “I think the charter-school movement has always been a metaphor for the reform of the public-school system,” he said. “But that’s become a piece of the reform movement, more so than before.” Williams’ success in fundraising reflects a greater issue at stake in the race, he said. “It’s going to be a referendum on change at the school district,” Sonenshein said. “They’ll be very aggressive, but underlying it all is a legitimate political debate – it doesn’t have as much to do with personalities than the issue of governing schools.” Campaign finance disclosures also revealed in one of the most hotly contested races – Lauritzen’s Valley seat – that challenger Galatzan received about $877,500 in the Jan. 21-Feb. 23 period. Lauritzen took in $485,450. About $780,000 of Galatzan’s in-kind and cash contributions came from the mayor’s Partnership for Better Schools. Meanwhile, $450,000 of Lauritzen’s funds came from the UTLA. But while Galatzan spent about $611,000 – the bulk of it on television or cable airtime – Lauritzen spent about $195,000, mostly on campaign literature. Another candidate for board seat 3, Louis Pugliese, received $6,880. Campaign filings In the second-most-heated race, District 1 incumbent La- Motte – another union-backed candidate – received $524,100, $450,000 from the UTLA. The third candidate, Gloria Zuurveen, received $1,004. In South Gate’s District 7, Vladovic, who has been endorsed by the mayor, received about $142,250 – helped by a $10,000 contribution from Riordan and $100,000 from the mayor’s committee. Candidate Neal Kleiner received $10,475. Villaraigosa-backed Flores Aguilar, who’s running for the District 5 seat being vacated by David Tokofsky, received $185,000 in contributions in the period, $95,000 from the mayor’s committee. Challenger Bennett Kayser raised $21,453. The filings showed the mayor’s committee has spent about $1 million in cash and in-kind contributions so far on its campaigns and has about $900,000 in cash on hand to spend in the final week before the March 6 election. Campaign finance documents also showed that Villaraigosa’s committee has received about $1.6 million in contributions from entertainment executives, attorneys and developers. Filings show contributions of $500,000 from Jerry Perenchio, owner of Chartwell Partners; $100,000 from the Service Employees International Union, currently at odds with the UTLA; and $25,000 from the Anschutz Entertainment Group, which is behind Staples Center and the downtown l.a.live development. Another $25,000 was contributed by investor Gary Winnick, and Jeffrey Katzenberg, chief executive of DreamWorks SKG, also gave $25,000. firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3722160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MAYBE they should rename that “Friends and Family” telephone plan to “Friends and Family and Secret Agents.” That’s thanks to the National Security Agency, which is monitoring about a gabillion domestic calls in an effort to seek out terrorists. As a result, every time I answer the phone I take a breath and ask: Can everyone hear me now? It has to be overwhelming for this entirely new breed of first responders. I feel it’s my patriotic duty to give them the 411 on my digits, so they can save time and cross me off their listener list. While the pundits are focusing on highbrow stuff like the Constitution and privacy violations, I’m worrying about the poor schleps wading through a data stream that’s overflowing faster than a New Orleans levee. Next to alphabetizing credit-card receipts, I can’t think of a more boring job. Hour after hour of potentially scary stuff like reminders to pick up a Prozac refill, milk, eggs and the kids (where did we drop them off?) and maybe some WMDs (can’t seem to find them anywhere). I’m sure their ears perk up for the occasional libidinous flirtation between an estrusogen-enhanced whisperer and a turbo-testosterone voice. After a while though, that must sound as thrilling as that teacher in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” (“Bueller, Bueller, Bueller.”) It can’t be that easy to ferret out fishy phone calls. I’ve watched enough episodes of “The Sopranos” to know that the bad guys use code although when Tony says “Did you do dat thing?” it doesn’t take a Da Vinci Code-cracker to know “dat thing” probably doesn’t involve something declared on a 1099 tax form. Coincidentally, Tony and I both use dat phrase although in my case, “dat thing” usually involves some grade-school fund raising project for a product so infinitely impractical that purchasing “dat thing” is a crime in and of itself. And trust me that Dick Wolf isn’t salivating over the potential entertainment value in all this. Don’t expect some spinoff like “Law & Order: Eavesdropping Unit”: “In the criminal-justice system, the men and women with headphone hair are the dedicated listeners Kah Chung!” I’m sure they’re not sitting there adorned with Bose noise-reduction earpieces. After all, this is government procurement by the same folks who couldn’t get it together to armor-plate jeeps in Iraq. This snoop squad is probably wearing the equivalent of horn-rim glasses held together with a paper clip and Scotch tape. I know they say they’re not eavesdropping but looking for peculiar patterns of information. Quick. Short. Staccato. The kind of calls I make to my Mom: “I’m home.” Click. “My boyfriend is not a jerk.” Click. “I’m not talking to you about my boyfriend.” Click. It’s hardly the type of diabolical communication that should pique the interest of Homeland Security. Just the interest of Dad, who’s always unsuccessfully trying to promote domestic tranquillity. Hey, it’s in the Constitution. May I suggest a way for the White House to connect with the naysayers? Get those data geeks to focus on something that millions of Americans would idolize them for solving the greatest controversy of our time. Get them to nip a modern-day conspiracy in the bud. Was “American Idol” loser Chris Daughtry robbed by a phone-line glitch or what? They could put an end to the discord over his dismissal. Use that technology for good, not evil. Maybe then I could sing some White House praises. Stephanie Becker is a writer in Los Angeles.
Alex Sandro (Juventus) – While the Italian champions werent planning on finding a replacement for the highly capable Brazilian, they have admitted they will not stand in the way of the 26-year-old if he wants to leave. Chelsea are clear favourites to sign Sandro with the club set to pay a record £61million for the player. Paris Saint-Germain have also joined the race and it looks as if it will be a straight fight between the two clubs for the defenders services. 10 Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur) – The England full-back is still a target for Pep Guardiolas Manchester City despite the imminent arrival of former Barcelona man Dani Alves. Walker has shown himself to be a highly capable performer in the Premier League and the City manager is keen to add his attributes to the squad. The club appear to be haggling with Tottenham over a fee but with the player seemingly set on a move a deal in the region of £45million is expected to go through this summer. Defenders are becoming a valuable commodity and Premier League clubs are busy planning moves to bolster their rearguards.With the opening of the transfer window just days away, teams are weighing up big money deals with Chelsea’s proposed £61million bid for Juventus left-back the most eye-catching.But who else will be on the radar of some of the league’s big boys?Here, talkSPORT have compiled a list of the 10 biggest defensive targets and what the current situation is.Scroll through the gallery above to see the latest. 10 Kostas Manolas (Roma) – The Greek central defender has been of interest to Chelsea for a while and the Blues may finally be ready to make their move. Manolas seemed set for a £26million move to Zenit St Petersburg, managed by former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini, but a deal has stalled because of a dispute over wages. This has left the door open for Chelsea to swoop, in an attempt to bring the 26-year-old to Stamford Bridge, as they look for reinforcements following John Terrys exit and the seemingly imminent departure of Nathan Ake. 10 10 Kalidou Koulibaly (Napoli) – The Senegalese defender has impressed at Serie A side Napoli over the last three seasons and has interested Chelsea in the process. Reports suggest the Blues could table a £53million bid for the 26-year-old and he certainly seems to have the attributes to succeed in the Premier League. However, Napoli would be reluctant to let go one of their star performers. 10 Virgil van Dijk (Southampton) – The Saints man is perhaps the most in-demand defender on this list with Chelsea, Manchester City and favourites Liverpool all taking an interest. Liverpool had withdrawn their interest, following allegations of tapping-up, and Southampton have said the former Celtic man is not for sale. However, as time goes on you wouldnt be surprised to see things change once a big money offer is on the table and that could be as much as £60m. 10 10 10 Leonardo Bonucci (Juventus) – Chelsea are interested in the Juventus centre-back, whom Antonio Conte worked with him in Turin. However, while the Blues would love to get a deal done, breaking up Juves star trio of Bonucci, Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini looks unlikely. Current Juventus manager Max Allegri recently backed the Chelsea target as the Italian sides captain-in-waiting. 10 Matthias Ginter (Borussia Dortmund) – Tottenham have shown interest in the German centre-back as they look to bolster their squad for next season. Reports in Germany claim Spurs have already launched a bid for the 23-year-old who could prove to be a shrewd signing for Mauricio Pochettino. While primarily a central defender Ginter is also capable of playing at right-back, as well as in midfield, and his versatility is an attractive proposition. Chris Smalling (Manchester United) – Victor Lindelofs arrival at Old Trafford has cast doubt on the future of some of the current defenders at Manchester United none more so than Smalling. The England international joined the club in 2010 and, while he impressed at times under Louis van Gaal, he endured a difficult injury-hit season under Jose Mourinho. A host of clubs are interested in the two-time Premier League winner with West Ham, Everton, West Brom and Arsenal looking at the defender. 10 Benjamin Mendy (Monaco) – Both Manchester City and Liverpool are on the lookout for a new left-back and the 22-year-old Frenchman appears to fit the bill. Although Monaco are reluctant to sell, Pep Guardiolas side look to be in pole position to sign the £40million-rated Mendy. The Manchester City boss wants a deal done soon so the player can get experience with the team during next months tour to the USA. Marquinhos (Paris Saint-Germain) – The defender flourished last season in his favoured central role, following the departure of David Luiz to Chelsea, and Manchester United have shown an interest in the 23-year-old. But if the Red Devils want to sign the defender they face a fight as Barcelona and Juventus are also looking at the Brazilian. Marquinhos, however, has said he is happy in the French capital despite Premier League interest seemingly coming every transfer window.
This car left the road at the back of Errigal.There is growing anger at the condition of Donegal’s roads following today’s snowfalls.A number of motorists have had lucky escapes after their vehicles left roads at various locations.This pictures shows a car which skidded off the Back of Errigal road a short time ago.

The stalemate occurred in a league game back in April 2016 at Lugogo.Comments
Deputy Pearse Doherty has reacted angrily to the latest data on patient waiting list figures which shows that since the start of 2018, there has been a 17% increase in the number of patients waiting 18 months or more for outpatient treatment at Letterkenny University Hospital.The figures, which have been compiled by the National Treatment Purchase Fund (NTPF) reveal that as of the end of May, a total of 15,474 patients are awaiting an outpatient appointment, 2,201 of which have been on a waiting list for at least 18 months.Teachta Doherty said the latest figures from the NTPF reveal that a further 749 patients have been added to outpatient waiting lists at LUH since the start of the year, meaning that there are now 15,474 patients waiting to be seen by a Consultant at the hospital. He fumed “Even more worrying, is the fact that when we examine these numbers more closely we can see that within the time bracket consisting of those who’ve been waiting the longest for treatment, i.e., 18 months or more, we see that there over 2,201 patients who now fall within this category.“This means that while the overall number added to Outpatient waiting lists have risen by over five per cent this year so far, there has actually been an almost 17 per cent increase in the numbers waiting 18 months or longer for Consultant led treatment.“These figures, while not surprising, are nothing short of disgraceful and only further serve to prove the point which we in Sinn Féin and others have been making for some time now and that is that this Government is not serious able tackling the crisis in Health.“And almost every department and speciality across the entire hospital is now affected by this crisis, with some of the longest waiting times to be found in Gynaecology, Maxillofacial, Orthopaedics, ENT, Urology and others.” He added that while no one is claiming that we can solve these problems overnight, there are simple small actions which Government could take to swiftly improve this situation for countless patients and staff.“These include introducing integrated waiting lists across the entire hospital network to ensure patients requiring appointments, procedures and surgeries are able to access treatment much more quickly, something which Sinn Féin is proposing in its ‘Comhliosta’ initiative.“Similarly, my party colleagues and I only earlier this week launched our campaign to have the 19 Bed Short Stay Ward at Letterkenny Hospital reopened because it’s obvious that these beds must be brought into use to help alleviate overcrowding at the hospital – something which has a knock on effect on every aspect of the health service, including waiting times.“On that note, I’m happy to report that the campaign’s online petition has already garnered well in excess of 1,000 signatures and I want to thank the people of Donegal for getting behind this important initiative.”“It’s clear that political inaction and disinterest are to blame for the crisis in our health system, but I truly believe that through coming together and demanding change then people power can and will force those overseeing decision making within our health service sit up and listen.” Number of patients awaiting Outpatient Procedures continues to climb was last modified: July 6th, 2018 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)
Drug and drink driving numbers in the county have accelerated with Gardaí in Donegal arresting 25 people over the last three weekends for the offence. New figures revealed today (Tues) show over an 11-month period there has been a 24% increase in the number of arrests for the offence.The statistics revealed between September 2018 and August 2019 there were 416 arrests in Donegal for driving under the influence, which is an increase of 80 people arrested compared to the previous year. In the last three weekends alone, there have been 25 arrests in the county, with five arrests last weekend, 10 the weekend before and 10 the weekend before that here in Donegal.A Gardaí spokesperson said the figures showed how the public were simply not listening to warnings over the crime.Garda Grainne Doherty said: ” I attended the Roadsafe roadshow the other day at the Aura leisure centre and it gave out a very powerful message to the young students who perhaps are going to start driving in the near future.“I would doubt very much that anyone present at that Roadshow will ever drive whilst under the influence. “I thought it was extremely interesting to listen to Gerry Lane, the A&E consultant, at the roadshow and he said that people think that the worst news that he can give to a family is that their loved one has died as a result ofa collision but that it is not.“He may have to break the news that the person is alive but that they are totally trapped in their broken body and will remain like that for the rest of their days in a hospital bed or in a wheelchair unable to communicate or care for themselves.“The message we want to send out is clear and it is a simple one. If you drive under the influence of drink or drugs you could end up spending the rest of your days in a rehab centre regretting it or your family might spend the rest of their days regretting your bad decision at your graveside.“It is just not worth it!”Shock as drink driving arrests spiral across Donegal was last modified: October 17th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)
