Do not promote alcohol at upcoming IAC events

first_imgDear Editor,The Indian Action Committee (IAC) wishes to advise against the promotion and sale of alcohol during upcoming events to commemorate the 180th anniversary of the arrival of the first batch of East Indian indentured immigrants from India to Guyana. While the official anniversary will be on the 5th of May, 2018, countrywide events are scheduled before and after.Since its establishment in 2003, the IAC has, from its first event to commemorate Indian Arrival in Guyana, advocated that no alcohol be allowed at these functions and implemented measures to prevent promotion and consumption. It was heartened that other organisations promoting similar activities subsequently joined the advocacy, which has now become a fixture in related advertisements.The IAC strongly believes that the Indian Arrival commemoration events, which promote family values, must be free from the impact of alcohol consumption and promotion. Corporate entities which, over the years, have partnered with the IAC to promote these events and which are known for the production of alcohol must be commended for promoting non-alcoholic beverages and similar products.The IAC feels compelled to reiterate that alcohol should not be promoted and consumed at the upcoming events since some promotions which have already begun openly advertised its sale.The IAC, therefore, urges those involved to be mindful of the negative impact these promotions would have not only on the events and the family values intended to be fostered, but the additional challenges it poses socially.The IAC takes this opportunity to invite the general public to celebrate with us our 15th Grand Annual Cultural Mela (free admission) slated for Saturday, April 28, 2018, at the Anna Regina Community Ground, Essequibo, and Saturday, May 5, 2018, at the Albion Sports Complex, Berbice.Regards,Indian ActionCommittee Guyanalast_img read more

Brush fire burns near Universal City; two youths are in custody

first_imgLOS ANGELES (AP) — Flames allegedly ignited by two youths roared up brush-covered ridges in the Hollywood Hills on Friday, giving the city a major wildfire scare but leaving nearby neighborhoods and entertainment industry complexes unharmed except for a choking blanket of smoke. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said two juveniles, ages 16 and 17, from Illinois told authorities they caused the fire and were in custody, but he had no details on what the youths did. “They’ve admitted that they started this fire,” the mayor told a press conference. The fire started next to the Oakwood Toluca Hills, a corporate housing complex northwest of downtown, and spread rapidly through the rugged Hollywood Hills on Friday, tearing through dry brush but not immediately threatening nearby neighborhoods and business districts. Oakwood Worldwide spokeswoman Angela Lapre said one building was evacuated at the Fire Department’s request. “At this point our number one concern is the safety our residents,” she said. Some 200 firefighters and five helicopters battled the flames, said Fire Department spokesman Ron Myers. Helicopters operated from landing pads atop nearby Mount Lee, a landmark topped with transmitters. There were no reports of structural damage, he said. The blaze was reported at 12:50 p.m. “I don’t know the exact last date we’ve seen a fire in this particular area but the hills are prone to fires throughout the year,” he said. “This is just a little bit earlier than what we normally see.” Southern California is parched after an extremely dry winter that left rainfall levels more than 11 inches below normal. Just 2.47 inches has fallen since July 1. Humidity also was low, about 10 percent, which makes vegetation burn more easily. But an onshore flow of air from the Pacific was expected later in the day. “That will bring ocean air, which is more moist, toward the fire,” said Stuart Seto of the National Weather Service. The Hollywood Hills bisect Los Angeles, forming the southern side of the San Fernando Valley. The blaze started east of Universal City, south of the Warner Bros. studios complex in Burbank and to the west of 4,200-acre Griffith Park and Forest Lawn Memorial Park cemetery. Scott Rowe, vice president of corporate communications for Warner Bros. Entertainment said the company was monitoring the situation closely. “The studio is fairly filled with smoke at the moment,” he said. “It’s at our back door. I think a couple of our entrances have been closed at this point and we’re operating normally but that could change any minute.” The Oakwood Toluca Hills housing complex has been a popular place for aspiring child actors to stay over the years. Precautions were taken at Sunset Ranch, which offers horse rides from the south side of the hills over to the San Fernando Valley side. Manager Jason Marchant, 34, said three scouts were sent out on horseback to make sure the fire didn’t move toward the ranch. “The horses are haltered up and are ready to mobilize at a second’s notice,” he said. Flames erupted just about a block from the 60-year-old Smoke House restaurant in Burbank. “It’s scary. I’ve been telling my employees to get ready to evacuate, just in case,” said general manager Israel Aviles, 38. John Black, a cashier at Miceli’s Italian restaurant in Universal City, said most of the skyline above the historic eatery was thick with black, gray and orange smoke. “I’m concerned about the fire because I live really close to here,” he said. Lights flickered in some parts of the city during the fire, which burned near some power transmission lines. “We have had no outages as a result of the fire,” said spokeswoman Gale Harris of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. “The smoke is affecting the lines, but we just made adjustments. We’re OK,” she said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more

first_imgA young Donegal woman who was snubbed by a job agency because of her strong Irish accent has been flooded with offers of work.Donegal Daily revealed yesterday how former Rose of Tralee finalist Grainne Boyle from Gartan was told by the London-based Bonne International Nanny Agency that her Donegal accent was too strong.Grainne, 25, who holds a Masters in Education, had completed an interview via Skype with the Harley Street agency. And although she was told that she was more that qualified for a position as a live-in nanny with a Russian family, she was turned down.In fact the agency told her they could not find her work anywhere in the world because of her accent.Now Grainne has revealed she has been contacted by at least six people offering her work.“Two of them are people I have worked for before including one in Dubai and four others heard about my story. “I have to say I am overwhelmed by the response. I am just considering things at the moment and I won’t rush into anything,” she said.The Bonne agency admitted in a letter to Grainne that most of its clients was now looking for a “BBC accent.”Grainne said she certainly won’t be applying to any more jobs agencies who have issues with her accent.“I am still trying to get over the fact that it was ever an issue in the first place.“A lot of people still can’t believe that this kind of things still goes on in this day and age. “I certainly won’t be applying to any agencies who discriminate against people who have a certain accent.“I said it already – I’m proud of my accent and where I come from and I certainly won’t be changing that for anyone,” she said.TEACHER SNUBBED BECAUSE OF DONEGAL ACCENT FLOODED WITH JOB OFFERS was last modified: March 22nd, 2013 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:Bonne INternational Nanny Agencydonegal accentgartanGrainne Boylelast_img read more

Angels: Perfect ending

first_imgARLINGTON, Texas – A game that figured to mean very little a few days ago turned out to be big for the Angels. With a 7-4 win over the Texas Rangers on Sunday afternoon at Ameriquest Field, the Angels secured home-field advantage against the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series, which will start Tuesday in Anaheim. The Angels’ big three in the bullpen – Brendan Donnelly, Scot Shields and Francisco Rodriguez – combined for three scoreless innings to finish it off and got the necessary work in to be ready for Tuesday’s opener. Rodriguez got his 45th save, tying Cleveland’s Bob Wickman for the American League lead. It was one short of Bryan Harvey’s team record and more than Troy Percival ever got in a season. “I’m proud of myself,” Rodriguez said. “I didn’t let the Angels down when they decided to make me the everyday closer. I did my job, but I have more to learn. I feel I proved myself with my numbers but I want to be more consistent. “My walks (32 in 67 innings) were too high. I want to be more aggressive, use my fastball more and put hitters away.” The 95 wins is the second-most in club history, behind only the 99 wins by the 2002 team. Notes:The Angels are a lot more confident entering the playoffs this season compared to last season, when they were swept by the Red Sox. Last season, the Angels clinched the division on the second-to-last day of the season. This year, they clinched with five games remaining, allowing them to set up their pitching rotation and rest many of the regulars. “The whole lineup’s much stronger,” Scioscia said. “We were missing guys the end of last year. We didn’t have (second baseman) Adam (Kennedy, knee surgery), or (left fielder) Jose (Guillen, suspended by team), (third baseman Dallas) McPherson was inexperienced. One of our best lineups was (Alfredo) Amezaga at second and (Chone) Figgins at third. I think we’re in better shape now than we had been at any point toward the end of last year.” … Scioscia will put together his lineup in the playoffs similarly to how he lined them up in the final month of the regular season. Against right-handed starting pitchers, Steve Finley will play center field and Figgins will play third base. If Garret Anderson’s back is sound enough for him to play left field, Scioscia can choose Juan Rivera or Casey Kotchman as his designated hitter. If Anderson can only DH, then Rivera will play left field. Against left-handed starters, Figgins will play center field and Robb Quinlan will play third base. Rivera and Anderson will fill the left field and DH spots, based on Anderson’s health. … Darin Erstad gave Kennedy some good-natured ribbing before Sunday’s game, saying Kennedy asked for the day off so he could finish the season at .300. Kennedy, who did not ask for the day off, finished the season 125 for 416. If he had pinch-hit and made an out Sunday, he still would have technically finished with a .300 average (.2998). Either way, Kennedy did not have the required 502 plate appearances to qualify as a league leader, finishing with 455.

The Angels needed, and got, a three-game sweep of the Rangers, and also needed Boston to beat the Yankees on Sunday. “Considering what we had to balance in with our priorities, we did a heckuva job,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “We accomplished what we wanted to. We got guys rested and we got home field. Everything had to fall into place perfectly and it did.” center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Pitcher Ervin Santana, who finished his rookie season 12-8, gave up four runs and seven hits in six innings to finish the season strong, winning each of his final four starts. “His talent is real, but getting the chance to grow with the experience he was getting was very important,” Scioscia said. “After the first six or eight starts when he’d have one good game and one bad game, he settled in. He changed things with his pitch selection and made the adjustments experience can teach you if you pay attention. And he certainly is.” Scioscia said he’ll reveal his pitching rotation today, but he is likely to go with Jarrod Washburn in Game 3 in New York, following Games 1 and 2 starters Bartolo Colon and John Lackey in Anaheim. Either Paul Byrd or Santana will start Game 4 in New York. Offensively, the Angels got a three-run home run from Juan Rivera and two stolen bases from Chone Figgins, giving Figgins the most in the majors this season with 62. “I went around personally and thanked all my teammates for letting me accomplish something like this,” said Figgins, who also finished as the team leader in hits (186) and runs scored (113). last_img read more
