GuySuCo awaits word on fate of Skeldon Sugar Factory

first_imgChairman of GuySuCo Board of Directors, Professor Clive ThomasThere is growing opposition against the likely sale of the US$200 million Skeldon Sugar Factory, but according to Chairman of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) Board of Directors, Professor Clive Thomas, no such decision has been made as yet.Speaking with Guyana Times on Friday, Professor Thomas said that what currently obtains is there are options presented to Government for its consideration – options that had been submitted by the GuySuCo board in recent weeks.He said the corporation has put forward its proposals to its shareholders – the Government of Guyana – in order for it to make a decision on the fate of the factoryAccording to Professor Thomas, the board of directors is expecting a formal response to its proposal imminently – a sentiment bolstered by the fact that the 2017 national Budget is slated to be presented on Monday.Professor Thomas told Guyana Times during a brief phone interview that one of the options presented is for the status quo to remain, but this he said would lend toFITUG General Secretary, Kenneth Josephthe eventual collapse of the industry.According to Professor Thomas, Government also has before it a proposal to privatise the Skeldon Facility, with a view of seeking an investor or investors that would pursue diversification.This option he said, if pursued could lead to the development of other activities including areas of aquaculture, dairy, among other alternatives.The representative union bodies for sugar workers on Friday all voiced concerns over the possible sale of the Skeldon Sugar Factory and have cautioned against this course of action.Unions stand togetherThe Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Guyana (FITUG) on Friday endorsed the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU), a major affiliate of the FITUG group, in its call to halt any consideration of a sale of the Skeldon Sugar Factory.“FITUG notes the potential dire effect on the employees’ lives of this unnecessary plan to sell an important national asset… Any sale of the Skeldon facility at this time would certainly impact negatively on the entire industry, which can only aggravate the country’s economic plight. The factory and the estate’s extensive and rich land-holding have the potential to contribute to GuySuCo’s recovery and, indeed, the nation’s economy.” According to the trade union representative body, it sees much sense in the case made by GAWU for the retention, refurbishment and sustained technical maintenance of the Skeldon flagship estate:“Recent praise about the factory’s excellent sustained improved production performance coming from GuySuCo’s Chairman and the Agriculture Minister (Noel Holder) need to be emphasised.”FITUG pointed too to the corporation’s 2015 Annual Report, which also documented the factory’s improved performance and, “importantly, the constructive recommendations from the Government-appointed Commission of Inquiry must not be swept under the carpet as they present a sound case for the retention of Skeldon with all its potential, including its Co-Generation plant.”FITUG also used the opportunity to raise concerns related to transparency in the proposed Government-Corporation ‘sale’ scheme.“Firstly, as experienced when the Wales Estate closure was mooted early this year, there has been no consultation with the workers or their union. Credible information revealed that at the level of GuySuCo’s Board of Directors, the matter was not discussed and the relevant decision(s) seem to be limited to a select few, at least, up to this time.”According to FITUG, “we are mindful of the fact that the industry, wholly or its many components, are the nation’s assets and the Administrations of GuySuCo and the Government should not forget this.”FITUG said it considers it important to expose that no agency or auditor, except Wartsila, which examined only the power generation aspect of the factory, has been identified in the new and sudden critique of Skeldon made simultaneously when not so far-fetched rumours about a chosen buyer identified though no bidding has been announced.“FITUG urges the Government to tread warily, re-think hasty decisions and consult every stakeholder, including the unions and the political Opposition on this ‘sale of Skeldon’ which, we firmly believe, will be disastrous.”last_img read more

GM unloads health costs, promises jobs

admin No Comments

first_imgDETROIT – As the ink dries on the new four-year contract between General Motors Corp. and the United Auto Workers, retirees, workers, Ford and Chrysler are all anxious to see the details of what could be a watershed pact for the industry. For retirees, there’s uncertainty about how the union will manage their health care. To the rank-and-file, there’s the hope that a two-day strike was enough to bring promises from GM to build new vehicles at their factories, keeping them employed for years. Even GM executives must be wondering whether there’s enough cost savings to make them competitive with the Japanese. “There is a lot of relief, but that’s coupled with anxiety to see details of the agreement,” auto worker Tom Brune said Wednesday as he stood next to a pile of strike placards at the union hall near a GM plant in Wentzville, Mo. Union and company bargainers struck the tentative deal just after 3 a.m. Wednesday after bargaining for about 18 hours, but they gave few details. It still must undergo the scrutiny of local union presidents and a vote of GM’s UAW members, which is likely to happen this weekend. AGREEMENT: Both sides are anxious to see how the new four-year contract will play out. By Tom Krisher and Dee-Ann Durbin THE ASSOCIATED PRESS But the big detail that the company and union confirmed was that the union will take money from the nation’s largest automaker to form a trust that would handle payments for retiree health care. Several industry analysts said the agreement would shape contracts with GM’s Detroit-area competitors, Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler LLC. It’s also likely that the deal will frame other U.S. labor contracts, the analysts said. “We view the tentative agreement and its apparent terms as a historic milestone toward the long-term improvement in fundamentals and survival at the North American automakers,” KeyBanc analyst Brett Hoselton wrote in a note to investors. GM and the union praised the agreement, with the company saying it goes a long way toward cutting about a $25-per-hour labor cost gap between GM and Japanese automakers with U.S. factories. GM has said it pays workers $73.26 an hour in wages and benefits. The company lost $2billion last year and is in the midst of a restructuring. “This agreement helps us close the fundamental competitive gaps that exist in our business,” GM Chairman and Chief Executive Rick Wagoner said. The deal allows GM to move its roughly $51 billion in unfunded retiree health care costs into an independent trust administered by the UAW. The union also agreed to lower wages for some workers. In exchange, the UAW won commitments from GM to invest in U.S. plants, bonuses and an agreement to hire thousands of temporary workers which will boost UAW membership, according to a person who was briefed on the contract. The person requested anonymity because the details haven’t been publicly released. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Italian Stallion is back

admin No Comments

first_imgMALIBU – In the black-and-gold plastic trunks, weighing in at 3 ounces, standing nearly 7 inches tall, hailing from a factory in China, the Italian Stallion: Rocky Balboa! The meat-punching, steps-sprinting, “Yo, Adrian!”-screaming boxer will live again, as toy manufacturer Jakks Pacific Inc. announced a licensing deal with MGM Consumer Products on Friday. Playing off the 30th anniversary of the original “Rocky” film and the December release of the franchise’s sixth installment, “Rocky Balboa,” Jakks will release a line of action figures and play sets tied to the series this fall. After punching his way through adversity, heartbreak and serious blows to the head, Jakks hopes the Philly-bred pugilist will go the distance one more time. “He’s not pretentious, he’s a good person, he does the right thing and he’s involved in a brutal profession,” said Jeremy Padawer, vice president of boys entertainment and pet products. “He’s a poor dude, doesn’t have an outstanding education, has no backup plan, but he’s extremely lovable. … In the action-figure world, there’s a huge place for good versus evil.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant In addition to the debt-collector with a heart of gold and a mean left hook, the collection will include dutiful girlfriend/wife Adrian, showy rival-turned-buddy Apollo Creed and evil, communist punching machine Ivan Drago. The $7.99 Rocky will come in a variety of trunks, body styles and levels of damage – swollen eye sold separately. Jakks will also produce Rocky’s most famed opponent, in very limited quantities. “This is the very first time in the history of the world when a dead slab of beef will get a figure,” Padawer continued. “In all seriousness, it has a huge place in the Rocky lore, so we’re going to definitely include it.” The company, which made a name for itself producing similar figures of World Wrestling Entertainment stars, will begin the line in October, releasing six to eight figures from the first film. Following up each two months with subsequent movies, it eventually plans for a line of up to 50 figures, two boxing ring play sets, a replica championship belt and $19.99 electronic boxing gloves that make punching noises and play the familiar “Gotta Fly Now” theme song. Getting kids to play with figures tied to to a franchise launched in 1976 can be a tricky endeavor, but Padawer expects the line will skew a little more heavily toward the collector market. With up to 18 points of articulation, the figures can be posed brawling in either a $10 basic, plastic ring or a $49.99 model with die-cast posts, foam turnbuckles and fabric skirts. “It’s really important that they have a sense of humor about it,” said Chris Byrne, a New York consultant who runs TheToyGuy.com. “Yo, Adrian has become a catchphrase, so the only thing they need is a spring-loaded turkey that gets thrown out in the snow. I gave them a hard time about it but, hey, there’ve been far less likely things that have succeeded in the past.” Padawer, who acknowledges that it takes “a truly bizarre guy” to make it in the action-figure business, has indeed embraced the humorous side of the plucky puncher. While paying homage to the films’ iconic status, the line clearly taps into their kitschy potential. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that Jakks will come out with a replica of the Philadelphia Art Museum steps for its tiny Rocky to run up triumphantly. “We’ll do a statue, so what we’ll probably do (is) the last few steps,” Padawer said. “Come on, he ran up a ton of steps – that would be impossible. If it were up to me, we’d find a way to license the entire city of Philadelphia and make it, but that would be even harder.” Brent Hopkins, (818) 713-3738 brent.hopkins@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

ODE TO RORY AND DONEGAL – FROM A FRIEND

admin No Comments

first_imgThis poem was written by Joe Crossan, a teaching colleague of Donegal star Rory Kavanagh at Scoil Cholmcille in Letterkenny.Joe met Rory for lunch and during the conversation, he was struck by an idea for a poem about the Donegal team.He pictured the playing field as a battle ground and he wanted to capture the feelings of the dressing room before going out, the intense focus of the manager and the players, the sounds of battle on the pitch, continuing to fight to the final whistle and then that feeling when that whistle goes and you realise your dreams have come true. Joe and Rory are good friends and he has heard about the team’s training and has seen at first hand, Rory’s dedication to the team, the sacrifices he has made, the dietary adjustments etc.This led him to pen this poem for his friend and it’s intended to serve as a tribute to him and the team and maybe it will inspire other young people out there to work hard and dreams can come true.All from a kick of a ball I look around the room and see the heads bowed,They feel the same as meWe’ve just taken a beating and it doesn’t feel goodThis must be the worst it’s going to be?We leave that room and head for homeFriends and families await I don’t know if I can face themBut you can’t escape your fateChange was needed and needed fastEveryone agreed The papers were full of talkDidn’t care if they made us bleedA new year began with much promiseTrying to get stronger, fitter, fasterRunning until our lungs would burstAiming for success instead of disasterLong nights spent on the pitchStomachs emptied at the sideArms and legs sore from weightsWeariness and exhaustion insideBut a seed of hope has been sownAnd the heads are no longer bowedWe are as one nowStanding tall and proudNow we sit and wait in that roomOur enemy awaitsThe crowd bay and cheer with excitementI concentrate with my team matesThe manager is focussedHis plans for us already laid bareAll he wants of usIs to leave it all out thereWe leave together when toldOn the pitch we huddle like circled wagonsThen the ref blows the whistleAnd we breathe fire like dragonsTackles come thick and fastLots taken, more givenWe’re bruised and batteredBut mistakes are not forgivenI gaze upwards for a momentAs my eyes settle upon our prizeThen my focus quickly returnsAs I note my opponent’s sizeThe seconds tick awayOur opponents look tenseThe ref looks at his watchHe’ll blow it now if he has any senseFinally he puts it to his lipsFor a second no-one movesThen we erupt with joy and charge aroundAs if we all had hoovesOur opponents sink to the groundTheir heads go down and some tears flowWe shake their hands and pat their backsAnd generosity we show.We march up to the summitWhere the precious trophy waitsOur captain holds it highI know this happiness will not abateOur manager smiles from ear to earHis face unbridled joyMy head is filled with emotionThings I’d dreamed of as a boyThe fans have been fantasticFlags and banners wave to and froThe smiles on everyone’s facesThey’ve really enjoyed our showWe land back in our home countyCrowds all line the streetSpeeches are made by allThank God it wasn’t a defeatWe’re all so touched by the supportHow can we thank you all?Who’d have thought this could happenAll from a kick of a ball!ODE TO RORY AND DONEGAL – FROM A FRIEND was last modified: September 2nd, 2012 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:donegalJoe CrossanpoemRory Kavanaghlast_img read more

Dry winds drive fires, burn homes in Oklahoma, Texas

admin No Comments

first_imgMUSTANG, Okla. – Fires fueled by dry brush and driven by gusty wind damaged several homes in Oklahoma and Texas on Tuesday. Several firefighters and residents suffered minor injuries, authorities said. In Oklahoma, the biggest fire burned at least 400 acres in a rural area near the town of Mustang, southwest of Oklahoma City. Texas Gov. Rick Perry said dozens of fires, mostly in north and central parts of his state, prompted him to deploy firefighters and issue a disaster declaration. “It’s like trying to stop a 30-mph car coming down the street,” Texas Deputy Fire Marshal Keith Ebel said. “The wind is the worst enemy right now.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake TV station helicopter footage showed at least a half-dozen structures were burned in Mustang, but conditions appeared to improve by late afternoon, when fire crews brought the flames under control. “We’ve still got some hot spots that we’re concerned about,” Mustang Police Chief Monte James said. He said firefighters battled flames at four houses and sheds. One firefighter was being treated at a hospital for smoke inhalation. After the flames passed, residents emerged and were “watering their yards and standing in their yards,” said Harold Percival, who lives about a mile from the Mustang fire. “What can you do about it?” Pat Hankins, 62, said as he watched his one-story home burn. “You have no control.” Maria Vantour-Smith, Hankins’ friend, said flames hopscotched around Hankins’ property before reaching his home. “It just kept jumping. I’ve never seen anything like it,” she said. They were able to remove a few antiques and other items from the home before it was gutted. Several other grass fires were brought under control in three areas of Oklahoma City. One firefighter suffered heat exhaustion, and a child suffered minor burns on his hands when a shed caught fire. That blaze was apparently started by children playing with fireworks, Oklahoma City Fire Maj. Brian Stanaland said. “We’ve had warm temperatures, no moisture, low humidity and winds, so any little spark and man, it just goes,” Stanaland said. Fire burned across Bryan County in southeastern Oklahoma. The most severe destroyed at least three structures near Achille and resulted in an unknown amount of injuries, mostly from smoke inhalation, said Tim Cooke, the county’s emergency management director. “Our entire county is just about on fire,” said “It’s everywhere.” Smoke from other grass fires reduced visibility along Interstate 35, forcing officials to close a stretch of the highway in southern Oklahoma near the Texas line. The wind in Oklahoma was clocked at 25 to 35 mph, with gusts as high as 40 mph. In Texas, Fort Worth Fire Department Lt. Kent Worley said crews had fought nine brush fires during the first half of the day and he expected more. His department also helped battle a blaze in nearby Kennedale. The Dallas Morning News reported that flames in Kennedale threatened two apartment complexes. Three Arlington firefighters were hospitalized with smoke inhalation and heat exhaustion, said Battalion Chief David Stapp. The fires there threatened new housing developments and apartments. In Hood County, a fire near Canyon Creek forced at least 100 people to evacuate, said Chief Deputy Jerry Lind. He said several structures were on fire, and propane tanks had exploded. “We’ve got fires burning structures in several counties,” said Tracy Weaver of the Texas Forest Service. “It is just critically, critically dry out there right now.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

For HP, Even Good News Has A Dark Side

admin No Comments

first_imgHaving slogged through so much bad news of late, last week Hewlett-Packard marketers were quick to run to their laptops to make hay out of a closely watched market report showing that HP remained the word’s top-selling PC maker. But in their rush to shine a positive light on their struggling employer, the PR folks left out the most important point: HP is fighting to stay king of an eroding hill.For HP, Flat Is The New UpInternational Data Corp. (IDC) found that HP’s fourth quarter PC shipments last year remained roughly flat from the year before. But that was enough to keep it at the top with almost 17% of the market. Soon after the scrap of good news hit the Web, HP public relations went to work. “We believe HP’s position as the market share leader demonstrates out ongoing commitment to deliver superior PC products and experiences across customer segments,” the press release said.Woo-hoo!Ironically, in tooting its own horn, HP highlighted its biggest problem, which is its need to cling to dwindling markets. The IDC report found that global PC shipments fell more than 6% in the quarter and more than 3% for the year. It was the first time in more than five years the PC industry had recorded a year-on-year drop during the holiday season, according to IDC.The reasons behind the decline are well known. People increasingly favor smartphones and tablets, both fast-growing markets where HP remains a non-player. Heck, even Microsoft, which helped to usher in the PC era, sees its demise and is pushing tablets and smartphones as the future of computing.But for HP, staying flat in PCs was so exciting it had to churn out a press release. That’s not a good sign. But given what else is going on at the company, the temptation is understandable.Due to management bungling over the last few years, HP has fallen ever farther behind its rivals in taking advantage of game-changing trends in the consumer and enterprise markets. The company paid a total of $24 billion for Autonomy and EDS to become a player in big data software and IT services, respectively, only to see both deals go down in flames through huge write offs.HP Battles WorkersMeanwhile, HP is chasing distractions when its focus should be on innovation. In Texas, HP is in a tussle with customer General Motors, which is in the process of giving HP services the boot. Eighteen employees quit HP at the same time and without notice to join GM’s efforts to take its IT work in-house.HP is asking the state court for permission to depose two of the workers; a move GM has called “retaliatory” and a “fishing expedition,” according to Bloomberg. It seems HP can’t understand why anyone would want to flee a company that has promised Wall Street that it will fire 29,000 employees this year and next.Bright SpotsHP’s current state is not all dark. Last week the company launched a services center for in-memory computing, an emerging technology that significantly boosts application performance by keeping all data in system memory rather than on disks. The announcement came the same day SAP said it was making all its business applications available on its in-memory database called HANA. HP plans to throw its support behind HANA and is also working on its own in-memory platform, codenamed Project Kraken,” according to InfoWorld.Kraken-like initiatives are what HP’s PR team should be crowing about, rather than the company’s managing not to shrink in the cratering PC market. Chasing hot new markets – not scrambling to be the last PC vendor to avoid extinction – is the only way to change HP’s image as a dinosaur.Dinosaur image courtesy of Shutterstock.

Working Harder or Smarter Won’t Make You More Productive

admin No Comments

first_imgWorking harder on things that are not important, that don’t move you closer to your goals, or that don’t really need to be done at all, does not make you productive. Even if you write these things down on a task list, complete them, and cross them off as done, you were not really productive.Working smarter doesn’t make you productive either. You can work really smart to put the processes in place that streamline your work, reduce friction, and let you compress the time it takes you to do certain things. You can work really smart on the wrong things, and be anything but productive.Delegating things or outsourcing them to other people might help you cross tasks off a list, and it may give you back some of your time. As necessary as it is to delegate, if the decision as to what to delegate is poorly made, poorly managed, or poorly done, you are not improving your productivity.The Secret to Legendary ProductivityThere is only one thing you can do to be more productive; that is to prioritize and work on what is most important.Working harder on what is most important will absolutely make you more productive. You will get more done, you will do it faster, and it will mean your work is of a higher quality. All of these are good measurements of productivity.Working smarter on your biggest priorities will also increase your productivity. Finding ways to produce more, faster, and with less friction can allow you to more with less energy and effort, energy and effort that can be devoted to additional work.Delegating the tasks and to-dos that must be done to move your most important work forward, but doesn’t require you as the primary value creator allows you to increase your output. When done well this can be like working both smarter and harder.There is no scenario in which working smarter, working harder, or delegating, improves your productivity when these things don’t help you to move your biggest, most important projects forward. In fact, you are better off not working harder, not working smarter, and not delegating, and instead working only on what’s important if you want productivity.The simple fact that you are doing what’s most important is what makes you productive.
