By the time the final whistle sounded, the Lancers dominated their way to a 5-2 win over the Vaqueros in a non-conference game at Robinson Stadium.PCC (2-3 overall) outshot Glendale, 23-4, and tied the game in the 20th minute when Sandra Ambrosio took a short pass from Leila Farazdaghi and rifled a 25-yard shot into the upper corner of the net. With 10 minutes left in the first half, the Lancers took a 2-1 lead as Ambrosio’s corner kick was headed in by Michelle Morales.In the 50th minute, the Lancers struck again with Morales sending a pass out of a corner kick to Rachel Schroeder, who promptly one-timed a drive high in the net from 25 yards out. Six minutes later, PCC made it 4-1 on a combination play in the box as Ani Hemelians passed to Juliana Gurule who tapped it to Farzdaghi for a wide-open shot and goal.The sophmore midfielder Farazdaghi finished off a 4-point afternoon (goal, two assists) with a cross to Elena Heuze for the team’s fifth straight score in the 77th minute.“It was gratifying to see our offense score on a variety of planned plays, coming from different directions and by different scorers. These are things we’ve been teaching in practice going back to the summer,” said PCC head coach Reggie Rivas. “After last season, we knew we had to start stressing offense and today we showed we have some firepower out there.”Schroeder, a sophomore midfielder, fired eight shots, four on goal to lead the PCC shooters. The five goals is the most by a Rivas-head coached team in his three seasons, and the most since he was an assistant in 2012 when PCC had eight in a win over El Camino College-Compton Center that ended South Coast Conference play that season.Jackelyn Alarcon scored Glendale’s first goal in the fourth minute and the Vaqueros (0-3-1) finished off the game’s scoring in the 87th minute on a hard shot by Ashlie Barillas.The Lancers next play at Fullerton on Friday, Sept. 25 in a 4 p.m. game.

Whether he now seeks to rejoin the parliamentary party remains to be seen, although the fall out from recent tensions between himself and fellow Donegal North East Deputy Niall Blaney is likelty to have an impact on any decision.So far, Dr Mc Daid has been unavailable for comment.

Is the Chief Elections Officer guilty of misconduct in public office?

first_imgDear Editor,GECOM Chief Elections Officer, Mr Keith Lowenfield is a public officer holding a constitutional post. He has a fiduciary responsibility to discharge his responsibilities in a constitutional, legal, professional, and honest manner. To date, he has failed miserably at doing so. Hot off the heels of Local Government Elections (LGE), and immediately following the no-confidence motion on December 21, 2019, Mr Lowenfield should have moved into full action to organise for National and Regional Elections.In fact, he should have started preparations months ago, immediately following the motion being presented to Parliament on November 15. Instead, we have seen delay, prevarication and every tactic to frustrate the achievement of the constitutional deadline of March 20 to hold elections. By December 22, Mr Lowenfield should have submitted a detailed project plan to hold elections which should have been sent to every Commissioner of GECOM. To date, only a flimsy effort has been attempted. Why are taxpayers’ monies being wasted by such incompetence? Any capable person would have already sent a full and detailed project plan to execute elections by March 20. But not Mr Lowenfield! In my opinion, there is only one explanation—Mr Lowenfield has betrayed his professional and constitutional responsibility.In the circumstances, a full investigation should be launched into the conduct or misconduct of Mr Lowenfield. A professional manager would have presented, not later than two weeks after the motion was presented to the Parliament, a full playbook and project plan on achieving elections at the shortest possible time. So, despite over a month’s delay on having the no-confidence motion debated and over 42 days since that motion being passed (a total of 80 days since the motion was submitted), we are no closer to holding elections by the constitutional deadline. With such high salaries and budgets, Mr Lowenfield is either highly inept or simply a shrewd political operative of APNU/AFC who is abusing his constitutional position to delay elections.Perhaps his visas should be pulled, and criminal charges brought against him for misconduct in public office. I call on Mr Anil Nandlall to consider filing such actions immediately or the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to similarly do.We are now heading into a constitutional crisis and a proper plan to execute the elections by March 20 has not been submitted. All due to Mr Lowenfield. Of course, aided and abetted by the Chairman of the Elections Commission, who was neither fit nor proper, to occupy his position. Together, with APNU and AFC, it is yet another effort to manipulate the process of conducting free and fair elections. Bring on the charges immediately against Mr Lowenfield.Our Private Sector must also act in this regard by lobbying all the observers and diplomatic posts of the apparent misconduct of Mr Lowenfield. Letters to the Organisation of American States (OAS), Commonwealth Secretariat, Caricom, and other major Bodies, are now essential. Otherwise, Mr Lowenfield will continue to operate as an APNU political operative instead of conducting himself and the vast agency – GECOM – that he is responsible for, in a state of preparation to hold elections. After all, LGE elections were just held in November 2018 and all systems were tested and prepared.Let the bells toll. Mr Lowenfield is guilty of misconduct in public office. Start the prosecution. Cancel his visas. Let the world know that Mr Lowenfield is the key person about the plunge Guyana into a constitutional crisis, by failing to have GECOM ready to conduct elections by March 19, 2019.Sincerely,A Grantlast_img read more

Reformed sex ed curriculum needed in schools

first_imgUG Turkeyen and Tain Talks 11The current Health and Family Life Education (HFLE) programme, offered in secondary schools, lacks relevance and is inadequate in meeting the needs of adolescents while denying them access to sexual and reproductive health information and services, according to the Guyana Equality Forum (GEF).GEF’s representative, Joel Simpson, made that statement at the University ofSt Stanislaus College Board of Governors Chairman, Chris FernandesGuyana’s 11th Turkeyen and Tain Talks on the topic “Education and Freedom: Education Reform and Socio-Economic Development in Guyana”.Simpson was one of the panellists at the Turkeyen and Tain Talks along with Chair of the Education Reform Commission, Ed Caesar; Chair of the St Stanislaus College Board of Governors, Chris Fernandes; Chief Education Officer Marcel Hutson; Guyana Teachers Union General Secretary Coretta McDonald; National Science Coordinator Petal Punalall-Jetoo; Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academic Engagement, Professor Michael Scott; and Conservation International Guyana Vice President, Dr David Singh.In his presentation, Simpson said that the lack of comprehensive sexuality education, homophobic and transphobic bullying and school dropouts along with the gaps in the reintegration of teenaged mothers into the school system were issues that were deliberately ignored while discussing education reform.He noted that evaluations by the Guyana Responsible Parenthood Association (GRPA) have shown that programmes on sexual education could help youths delay the onset of sexual activity, reduce risky sexual behaviour, reduce the number of sexual partners, and increase responsible behaviour, includingGEF’s representative, Joel Simpsonprotection from HIV; Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and unwanted pregnancy.In addition, he explained that the GRPA’s evaluations of the HFLE programme taught in public secondary schools in Guyana found that it ignored the basic human rights of young people by denying them critical information on a range of issues.“The GEF and GRPA view the HFLE programme as lacking relevance and inadequate to meet the needs of adolescents and denies them access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) information and services,” Simpson noted.“Young people need honest, effective sex education that is comprehensive and rights based – not ineffective, shame-based abstinence-only programmes. The HFLE programme is a failure because it has not shown any positive changes in reducing teenage pregnancy and STIs in young people,” he added.Simpson called on the Education Ministry to work closely with civil society and key stakeholders to implement a comprehensive sexual education programme in the public school system while proving safe spaces for students to discuss sex and sexuality with counsellors.During his passionate presentation, Simpson, Managing Director of the LGBT advocacy group SASOD, noted that while there were rules for teachers to not discriminate against students based on ability, race, colour or creed, there were no rules that covered sexuality or gender identity.He added that LGBT students were dropping out of school because there were no laws, policies or mechanisms in Guyana to protect or offer redress to them when they experience stigma and discrimination in the education system. He noted that SASOD and the Guyana Trans United had documented instances where these students were discriminated in clear view of the teachers and nothing was being done to address the level of bullying.“In some instances, the discrimination of LGBT students are from the teachers themselves and in plain and open view for others to witness,” he noted.Additionally, Simpson said Guyana lacked any system to reintegrate teenaged mothers in the school system. He recommended that a reintegration policy be developed and implemented to ensure that girls could complete their secondary education after giving birth. He also suggested that the Education Ministry’s Policy on Discipline of Teachers’ Code of Conduct include sexual orientation and gender identity as protective categories from abuse and discrimination.Review management of Education MinistryMeanwhile, St Stanislaus College Board Chairman Fernandes noted that there was no short-term fix of the education system, adding that an extensive long-term plan was needed. He explained that Guyana was in a state where private schools were outperforming the public ones and those students from the private primary schools were gaining entry into the top public secondary schools, which undermines the goal of equal opportunity and equity in education.Fernandes told the gathering that it was his opinion that the management of the Education Ministry needed to be revised since the Ministers failed to consider their tenure as a long-term assignment.“They seem more interested in creating a public relations programme to make the results being achieved look good as they can during their period at the helm,” he noted.Education Minister Nicolette Henry was supposed to be one of the panellists at the event, but for some reason could not attend and sent her CEO.Fernandes explained that the day-to-day operations of the Education Ministry needed to be handled by someone who was highly-trained and qualified and supported by two equally qualified deputies.“Our emphasis should be for a total audit review of the management system of the Ministry in which the Minister should just be the executive chairman,” he submitted.CEO Hutson noted that the education system was a work in progress, adding that the Ministry was aware that there was much more to be done for the development of the sector.last_img read more

Cardiff City 0-0 Bristol City: Severnside derby ends in stalemate in Wales

first_img Alex Revell The Severnside derby failed to spring to life as Cardiff and Bristol City played out a goalless draw in the Welsh capital.Elliot Bennett could have snatched it at the death for the visitors but his shot hit the woodwork, while Sammy Ameobi somehow fired wide from close in in injury time for Cardiff.The result leaves the Robins hovering over the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone, while the point puts Cardiff three points off the play-off places, but they will be left disappointed after spurning a host of chances.The Bluebirds controlled possession in the opening quarter, but it was the side from the over the bridge who had the best opportunities to break the deadlock.Home left-back Fabio was left exposed by wide midfielder Peter Whittingham which gave Bennett the freedom to flash menacing crosses across goal – but neither Aaron Wilbraham nor Luke Ayling could convert from close range.And the Robins lost one of their aerial threats to a hamstring injury after 24 minutes.Defender Nathan Baker was limping before he ignored a pass out from goalkeeper Frank Fielding and allowed Craig Noone a run and shot on goal which, luckily for Baker, was blocked. He was replaced by Joe Bryan.Whittingham played a neat one-two with Lee Peltier to find a pocket of space behind the Bristol back-three and deliver a teasing cross to the back post.Fielding made a mess of it and conceded a corner which was headed inches wide by Matt Connolly.But it was Steve Cotterill’s side who had the best chance to go in front just before half-time.Jonathan Kodjia came out with the ball from defence after a wasted Cardiff chance and fed the lively Bennett before continuing his run.He was found by an inch-perfect Bennett cross into the area but goalkeeper David Marshall reacted quickly to tip the ball over.Joe Mason had two chances to give Cardiff the lead in as many minutes after the break as the hosts came out firing.First he got his head to a looping Peltier cross but glanced wide, before Alex Revell found him with a low cross that he could only fire over the crossbar.Kagisho Dikgacoi was the next to get his head to a Whittingham cross but his weak effort allowed Bristol City to break and resulted in Aron Gunnarson picking up a yellow card.The Robins thought they had stolen the three points with 10 minutes remaining after Bryan stabbed a shot against a post and Kodjia poked the ball home, but the striker was offside.There was still time for late drama when Marshall pushed Bryan’s driven shot into the path of Bennett and he cracked the upright with a right-footed effort, while at the other end, Ameobi, who looked to be in an offside position, somehow missed from four yards. 1last_img read more
