Adopt-A-Pet Dog of the Week

first_imgFacebook24Tweet0Pin0My name is Marley, and I am sweet as pie! I am a 6 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix with a very loving temperament and I’m looking for a new home. Will it be yours?Marley has only three legs, but gets along just fine. His breed is strong, determined, athletic and energetic. Jack Russell’s are also one of the most bright and trainable of the Terrier breeds. You see, they love to learn. Marley loves his walks and especially his laps. Marley will give you years of love and devotion, but because of his strong prey drive, he should live with no other dogs or cats. He wants to be the only “Prince of the Castle”. Marley weighs about 15 pounds, is neutered and current on shots and is ready and waiting for you to come for a visit to make him part of your family.Adopt-A-Pet has many great dogs and always need volunteers. To see all our current dogs, visit www.adoptapet-wa.org, Facebook at “Adopt-A-Pet of Shelton Washington” or at the shelter on Jensen Road in Shelton.

Regional, National Land Police underway- GL&SC Head

first_imgThe Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission (GL&SC) has implemented a number of initiatives aimed at improving services and integrity at the Commission. This was announced by Commissioner and Chief Executive Officer Trevor Benn during a two-day outreach in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam).During a television programme, he also noted that the establishment of Regional and National Land Use Policies is underway.Commissioner Benn addressing land applicants and land leasers at a community meeting at Dartmouth Community“There should be National and Regional Land Use Policies… It is our expectation that these [Land Use] Plans will be prepared on a more frequent basis, and updated more regularly… There is a committee that has been put together to begin work on a National Land Policy, and that committee is also tasked with reviewing our Land Use Plans,” he said.The two-day outreach was conducted to bring resolution to a number of land issues brought to the Commissioner’s attention by residents of the township of Anna Regina and its surrounding villages.The Commissioner, flanked by a 10-person team comprising representatives from the Georgetown GL&SC office, the Region Two GL&SC office, and the Department of Housing, listened to the concerns of over 80 residents from Anna Regina; The Deep, The Jib, Dartmouth, Lima Dam, La Belle Alliance, and the surrounding villages.Benn said such community visits and outreaches and face-to-face contacts with residents allow for more informed decision making on land issues and disputes. “It is our principal position that, as servants of the people, we are required to consult with them, to discuss with them their issues, and to get advice as is necessary…. From time to time, there are letters coming to us, and instead of making decisions on those letters, we like to understand the circumstances that may have led to these letters, and one of our ways of doing that is to come on the ground and see for ourselves… We are now better prepared to respond to the requests of those individuals,” he declared.In order to ensure President David Granger’s vision of an ‘unbribable’ Public Service at the level of the GL&SC, the Commission has also taken measures to improve integrity and accountability. “We have zero tolerance for corruption at the Commission, which is another reason (why) we do these visits… If any [corruption is] happening, we will know. We will hear first-hand from the people…“Just recently, because of corruption, we’ve had to send home two staff [members]. We’re taking steps daily to ensure that our staff (are) sensitised. We are making our office more open to the public…  We’re putting cameras in the building, and we are using [press] mediums to let people know that they do not have any requirement to pay staff members for the service they provide, and any payment made must be done on a receipt”.To that, Benn added that the Commission has an open mind when it comes to constructive criticism from the people of Guyana. “We are very open to members of the public in terms of how we can improve the service [that] we deliver. Again, this is why we come to the field.  We don’t ever assume that we have the answers to all of the question that are out there,” he said.The Commission will be implementing an Acknowledgement of Receipt system to assure applicants that their applications have been received and are being processed. This was a suggestion made by Region Two resident and land applicant Mr. Charles Gregory during a Regional Community Meeting conducted during the outreach.Chairman of the Interim Management Committee of the Guyana National Co-operative Union Limited (GNCUL), Mr. Derrick Cummings, praised Mr. Benn for not losing touch with the people on the ground. “Commissioner Benn, I’ve known you for a long time, and I’m very happy to see that you’ve never lost the common touch and never lost the interest in trying to work with the down-trodden, and to bring justice to those who need justice,” he said.Chief Co-operatives Development Officer within the Ministry of Social Protection, Ms. Perlina Gifth, said the GL&SC has been particularly helpful with land issues involving co-operative groups. “I want to thank the Commissioner for the work that he is doing, because the Lands and Surveys Department has been in contact with us where persons have applied for land representing co-op societies… [The Commission has] been checking to see the validities of the groups… [In] the interest of people who want to be involved in agriculture… He [would] consider their applications and have the process done to issue titles,” she said.The Commissioner made courtesy calls on the Mayor and Council Members of Anna Regina and the Regional Chairman of Region Two, and attended the dedication ceremony of the GNCUL’s Office Building.last_img read more

Solskjaer hints at a possible Man United stay

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer claims Molde’s owners wished him well and told him to succeed as Manchester United’s caretaker manager suggesting he would not need to return.Solskjaer, 45, has masterminded the Red Devils unbeaten run winning eight of his nine matches as they mount a push for a top-four spot.The Norwegian whose United’s career spanned for 11 years is a top contender for the role on a permanent basis and he further went on to reveal the good luck message Molde’s co-owners Kjell Inge Rokke and Bjorn Rune Gjelsten gave him.Solskjaer told Sky: “When I rang the owner and said that United had called and that he always knew that this had been my dream, he said: ‘Go over, enjoy yourself – and please don’t come back’.“Both owners wished me all the best because they knew this is something I dreamed about.“To get the backing from them was fantastic. If I go back to Molde, I will do my best for them – but it depends when I go back.“It’s been fantastic so far. Hopefully, I will get to see my family soon, because that has been the only downside to the job.”Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the made the best start to a managerial reign in the Premier League:Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.Solskjaer (18/19): WWWWWWDGuardiola (16/17): WWWWWWLAncelotti (09/10): WWWWWWL #mufc pic.twitter.com/VLDHhF49IB— United Xtra (@utdxtra) January 29, 2019Recent reports confirmed the former United striker is being consulted over future additions ahead of next season, whether he remains in charge or not.“I think it’s quite natural that whoever is in charge and whoever is involved with the players already here has a voice in that,” Solskjaer added.“I have got to know the players, what potential they have, how far away they are from reaching that potential, and who we can build a team on. So, of course, I put my views into the club.“It was just about coming in to work with the players, and I knew that if the club had targets for the transfer window, they would have discussed them with me.”last_img read more

WB trafficking cases rising as people reporting more minister

first_imgKolkata: West Bengal has registered a rise in the number of trafficking cases in recent years as more people are coming forward to report such incidences, a state minister has said. Over the years, the state government, with the help of various welfare organisations, has been able to convince people to fight the menace, Minister of State for Women and Child Development Shashi Panja said.”People often indulge in blame game, pointing fingers at the state government for the increase in the number of trafficking incidents. That isn’t the case. In the past few years, we have seen more people mustering courage to talk about their plight,” she asserted. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsPanja was speaking at the seventh edition of ‘Anti-Trafficking in Persons Conclave’, hosted recently by the US consulate in Kolkata, in association with Delhi-based NGO Shakti Vahini.The two-day meet saw students, activists, journalists, government officials and security personnel coming together to find a solution to the issue that had been plaguing India and its neighbours.Lauding Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for the internationally acclaimed Kanyashree scheme, the minister said over 47 lakh girls have benefited from the move.

As per the scheme, Rs 750 is paid annually to girls studying in class 8 and above, and a one-time grant of Rs 25,000 is paid after she turns 18 provided she is engaged in an academic or occupational pursuit and unmarried.”The scheme is a safety net for many girls, who wish to study and do something with their life,” Panja added.Echoing similar sentiments, US Consul General Craig Hall, who addressed the inaugural session of the meet, said human trafficking was a global problem. The US and India, as enduring partners of the 21st century, are committed to providing leadership on issues of shared interests, including the strengthening of human rights, he said.”In the last seven years, we have seen great examples of collaboration between civil society organisations and the government to combat trafficking,” Hall added.Sharing his experiences, Shrikumar Bandopadhyay, the IG of Sashastra Seema Bal, Siliguri frontier, said the porous international borders often make it easy for traffickers to escape law.”We visit schools in remote areas to generate awareness among the youths about the safe use of social media and the risks of giving in to temptations,” he said.”In the past two years, we have rescued at least 150 victims from the clutches of traffickers,” he stated.Ravi Kant, the founder of NGO Shakti Vahini, said the conclave gave all stakeholders a chance to brainstorm ways to tackle the global menace.”The two-day meet is a great occasion to strengthen our fight against forced labour and human trafficking. It is time that all stakeholders unite to end the menace once and for all,” he added.last_img read more
