first_imgHead of the Business Unit, Food and Consumer Goods, Anjeta HindsThe massive Trinidadian rooted, Ansa McAl, goods’ distribution company on Monday morning introduced over 50 new products from five different brands which seeks to help Guyana strive towards achieving its green economy while giving locals a taste of healthy and delicious snacks.The products range from biscuits to coffees and even biodegradable items which the company says is the mere tip of the iceberg of what’s to come next.Head of the Business Unit, Food and Consumer Goods, Anjeta Hinds, shared a few of the products which are now available at leading supermarkets.She said, “You need to pick up Butter Kiss biscuits, or Pozuelo cookies or you need to try Juan Valdez coffee and you need to put it in your biodegradable hot pack paper cups and things of that nature. We also do have Pam’s Sardines. Pam’s Sardines are from the Connors Group of Companies, they are the leading manufacturers and distributors across sardines and tuna”.Hinds added that a host of biodegradable items such as foil wraps, reusable plastic products and reusable paper products will now be distributed across Guyana, at “unmatched” and “unbeatable prices”.According to her, the products are all healthy choices for both children and adults who are looking to keep their calorie and sugar intake low.“We know that everybody is becoming a little bit more health conscious. They’re looking at calorie count, they’re looking at sugar content across the different snacks and there’s nothing on this table that has an ultra-high, send your child into hyper-drive sugar content and or calorie count…we do have healthier options,” she assured.It was pointed out that the agency will strive to ensure the product reaches all corners of Guyana so that every local can have a taste of quality as well as access safer products that are better for the environment.The biodegradable products is one which has already been welcomed by many retailers and patrons as even the Government is seeking to do away with plastic.In fact Minister of State, Joseph Harmon at a post-Cabinet press conference last April, said ending of the use of plastic bags across Guyana is on the Government’s agenda. He explained that plastic is a problem across the world and Guyana, for its part, was not exempted from the consequences of this pollution.Providing a timeline, Harmon was optimistic that the ban could be pulled off by the year 2021.A new brand of coffee which was launchedlast_img read more

Council considering new development charges

first_imgSaxty says there are a few development types that are exempt, such as ones that have less than four units or would cost less than $50,000. Furthermore, developments that would not impact infrastructure would not be charged DCCs.The city can also choose to assist developers with their part of the percentage the developers would be paying for. Council informally chose a 30 per cent assist factor. For example, the city could help developers by paying 30 per cent of the amount the developer would have to pay.Once a bylaw is drafted and read over, the Ministry of Community and Rural Development must approve the bylaw before it can be adopted by the city. The city of Fort St. John is set to implement a development cost charge to help cover the city’s expansion.City council had asked that Urban Systems Ltd. to help the city develop a DCC program and bylaw. At a presentation made to the City Council’s Committee of the Whole meeting last Monday, Karin Saxty from Urban Systems says DCCs are fairly common in British Columbia. She says it’s used to cover the costs of infrastructure related to residential, commercial, and industrial growth and that there is a section in the Local Government Act that allows municipalities to collect DCCs.They can be used to pay for anything from transportation infrastructure to sanitary sewers, reservoirs, or parks, however only those associated with development. Saxty says the money from the charges can’t be used to cover infrastructure needed for the current population.- Advertisement -According to the City Manager, Dianne Hunter, DCCs are a charge that is levied on developers to help cover costs such as building new sewers or reservoirs as the city expands in size. The city is currently covering any projects needed due to its expansion, but would implement a levy on developments to help cover these costs.The exact amount has not yet been determined and once the bylaw comes into effect there would probably also be a grace period of anywhere from a few months to a year where the costs would still be covered by the city.After the grace period, developers would be charged a certain percentage of what a future sewer system or reservoir would be for the number of lots they are building and the city would cover the rest.Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL soccer star Shay Given has signed for Aston Villa today – ending his nightmare at Man City.The Lifford man had endured an incredibly frustrating time at City, failing to start one league game during the last season. The veteran keeper moved to Eastlands in 2009 but failed to nail down a first team spot after the arrival of boss Roberto Mancini.The Donegal man, who turned 35 back in April, was eager to move so he could continue to get first team football. He had been desperate to secure a permanent transfer or a loan move away from Eastlands for some time but it will be Aston Villa who win the race for his signature. Villa captain Stylian Petrov welcomed the proposed move and said last week: “Shay is one of the best keepers in the league and, if he comes to us, it will be a great signing for us.“He’s got European experience and Premier League experience so what else do you need?…. Shay would be a great signing and I hope that could happen.”Given will be replacing another veteran goalkeeper after 40-year old Brad Friedel moved from Villa to Tottenham Hotspur earlier this summer.BREAKING NEWS: SHAY GIVEN SIGNS FOR ASTON VILLA was last modified: July 15th, 2011 by gregShare 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:Aston VillaShay Givenlast_img read more

first_imgAnne-Marie admits she is spoiling her son Paul a little before his operation today – and why not?The young Donegal boy who is battling to walk for the very first time is to have his make-or-break operation tonight.Paul Doherty, 5, will go under the surgeon’s knife at 3pm local time in Missouri, America and 9pm Irish time.The brave Killygordon lad was born with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy which left him in a wheelchair. The operation is called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) and involves cutting some of the nerves in Paul’s spinal cord that are misfiring the muscles in his leg.But Paul’s mum had heard of a pioneering surgery, Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR), which involves cutting some of the nerves in Paul’s spinal cord that are misfiring the muscles in his leg.Now Anne-Marie Doherty has asked people to pray for her little boy in the hope that the operation is a success and that he will have a chance to walk one day.The Doherty family, who were supported by the people of Donegal in raising 60,000 euro, yesterday met with Dr Park, the man who will perform Paul’s surgery. Anne-Marie told Donegal Daily “We were at the children’s hospital today and met with Dr. Park and his team. We got on great and the surgery is scheduled for 3pm local time (9pm at home).“They are going to perform a slightly bigger procedure than they anticipated but this will help Paul to walk better later.“Also, Paul might need a second operation in 10 days on his heel cords and hamstrings. It’s not the best situation now but it will be for the best in the future,” she revealed.At the start of her campaign last year, Anne-Marie told Donegal Daily how she would love nothing more than to see her son walk into school.   DONEGAL PRAYS FOR PAUL AS LITTLE FIGHTER HAS HIS OPERATION TO WALK TODAY was last modified: March 3rd, 2015 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:donegalKillygordonoperationpaul dohertyWALKlast_img read more
