Some 20 employees and contractors of the National Port Authority (NPA) as of yesterday, were denied access into the Port’s facilities, due to high pressure temperature.The rejected employees and contractors’ pressure temperature readings were at least 37.5 Celsius (c). The final decision to send home the employees and contractors was made after they failed the second test.Though the examiner, known as Kelvin, refused to speak to the press, another staff, who is believed to be Kelvin’s assistant and begged for anonymity, told journalists, that the testing is part of NPA’s preventive measures on the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus. This is besides the regular washing of the hands with chloride water and avoiding of physical contacts.He argued that the 37.5 C indicates a high degree of fever in the body temperature.Although a fever could be considered any body temperature above the normal 98.6 F (37 C), medically, a person is not considered to have a significant fever until the temperature is above 100.4 F (37.5 C).According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), fever is one of the 17 signs and symptoms of Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever (Ebola HF). Other signs and symptoms of Ebola HF include headache, joint and muscle aches, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain and lack of appetite.Some patients may also experience, rash, red eyes, hiccups, cough, sore throat, chest pain, difficulty breathing and swallowing as well as bleeding inside and outside of the body.Meanwhile, similar Ebola preventive measure are ongoing at the Cellcom GSM, while other public and private institutions are only doing the regular washing of hands and avoiding physical contacts.A bystander, Stanley Nah, argued that the prevention of the spread of the disease has become a dilemma and all means necessary should be introduced to augment the efforts of the Ministry of Health Ministry.But some of the sent-home’s employees and workers have expressed their frustration and disbelief but said they will speak out if “this high body temperature’s thing” continues.It may be recalled, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, as part of the Ebola preventive measures, had asked non-essential staff in public institutions to stay home for 30 days (August 1-30) and later declared a state of emergency, which has been endorsed by National Legislature.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Damage to sugar sector, thousands of employees cannot be overshadowed – JagdeoDamage to sugar sector, thousands of employees cannot be overshadowed – Jagdeo
…points to decline in other sectorsOpposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoAlthough the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Administration continues to spout declarations of developments that it has been responsible for since it took office somPresident David Grangerdowed.This is according to Opposition Leader Bharat Jagdeo, who on Thursday said over 7000 sugar workers have been left without an income since they lost their jobs at the hands of this Government.“Sugar workers have lost 7000 jobs and people surrounding the sugar industry another 4000 to 5000 jobs. Are the sugar workers better off today? Sugar workers have not received any increase; the remaining workers have not received a single salary increase for all four years; zero per cent, the first time in our history, even under Burnham,” he said.Jagdeo posited that the APNU/AFC coalition is also responsible for scrapping the Annual Production Incentive (API) programme that rewarded the efforts of sugar workers who met targets and worked above and beyond their call of duty just so they could have more monies to support their families.Other sectorsBut it is not just the sugar workers who suffered the brunt of actions by this Government, Jagdeo said, adding that even the rice farmers are left nursing wounds and trying to keep their heads above water as they struggle to make a living in the rice industry.“The Government said it opened new markets for rice farmers but have cut $1 billion from drainage and irrigation, increased land charges for rice farmers to significant sums, sometimes by 300 per cent, 400 per cent, land and water rates, they have removed the taxes, put taxes on fertilisers and pesticides and put taxes on the machinery, so that’s it. Are the farmers better off today? The answer is no.”He also pointed out that in the mining industry, progress for the small miners has been halted, and in many cases non-existent. The Opposition Leader explained that under the People’s Progressive Party Administration, there was a two per cent final tax in place that all small miners had to pay but now the current Administration is bleeding them.“This Government removed it and increased it to a 28 per cent tax and it is no longer final tax. After the public outcry and we said we will reverse it they brought it down back but moved it on a sliding scale from a two to 3.5 per cent, we made it clear we would go back to two per cent. So the miners have seen a deterioration.”The Opposition Leader lamented that the laws that are now in place at the behest of the APNU/AFC Administration that targets small miners are making it more difficult for them to succeed in that field. They will encounter difficulties in continuing a job in the mining sector.“They have passed legislations to say that if the small miners don’t have records when the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) approaches them, they can go to jail now. How many small miners have records in the hinterland of their purchases? Who will give them a receipt if they buy two drums of fuel?”Jagdeo also noted that the sad state of hinterland roads and the lack of Government spending to repair them is presently a hindrance to miners with regard to transporting their equipment into those communities.He added that many policies adopted and implemented by the coalition Government have led to the decline in the environment of miners in Guyana and that this trend which commenced some four years ago will be progressively worse in relation to the country’s agricultural resources and development.

Hazard is currently away with Belgium preparing for European Championship qualifiers and is said to be relieved by the news that the two clubs have finally agreed on a fee.Sky Sports’ Spanish football expert Alvaro Montero has now revealed the deal is virtually done and Hazard is looking forward to finally making the switch.“This morning we’ve discovered that the player, who is in Belgium right now preparing for two games against Kazakhstan and Scotland, was happy and relieved because he realised that Real Madrid and Chelsea have agreed a deal,” he said.“It is said that he’s going to play on the right wing… but if Zidane changes formation, maybe next season he’s not going to play 4-3-3 but 4-4-2, and in that moment Hazard will play as a No 10 or maybe as a No 8, but especially on the right wing of Real Madrid’s attack.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Eden Hazard’s seven year spell at Chelsea is probably over with his dream move to Real Madrid on the cards but he leaves with the British media unstinting in their praise.MADRID, Spain, July 7 – Eden Hazard’s proposed move to Real Madrid appears to be on the verge of being completed, with reports suggesting the transfer will be confirmed in the coming days.The much-anticipated switch from Stamford Bridge to the Bernabeu finally looks set to go through after the two clubs agreed a fee in the region of £88million.

Department of Transportation crews installed 30 left-turn arrows at the city’s most congested intersections. “We have a traffic crisis in Los Angeles and people demand immediate relief, which these left-turn signals will provide. No longer will you have to play chicken with oncoming traffic to see if you can make it through the light,” said City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, chair of the council’s Transportation Committee. Sixty of the new lights will be installed in the San Fernando Valley. The Westside and Central parts of the city will each get 12, and South Los Angeles will get 14. The mayor will announce the plan this morning at a news conference in North Hollywood. NORTH HOLLYWOOD – Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will announce today a plan to add 100 left-turn arrows to the city’s most congested intersections. Work on the Right to Turn Left Initiative, which will cost the city $3 million, is expected to start Jan. 2. The 100 new signals will be installed at 45 intersections by June 30. “Every commuter in this city has a fundamental right to turn left,” Villaraigosa said. “Logjams created by intersections without left-turn signals are responsible for some of the worst gridlock in the city. These 100 new left turn signals will improve the commutes of thousands of Angelenos every single day.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MAN WHO STABBED PAL AFTER ‘GOING BANANAS’ WAS VICTIM OF TORTURE BY HIS MOTHERMAN WHO STABBED PAL AFTER ‘GOING BANANAS’ WAS VICTIM OF TORTURE BY HIS MOTHER
The late Enda McLaughlinA CO Donegal man whose brother died in horrific circumstances in Germany last year was the victim of torture by his mother, a court has heard.Daniel ‘Skippy’ McLaughlin, from Glentogher, Carndonagh, was before Letterkenny Circuit Court charged with assault causing harm. His brother Enda died after being struck by a car in north west Germany. He had earlier stabbed three people.But like his brother Enda, Patrick had an “horrific” childhood, said social worker Janice Arthurs in evidence to Judge Francis Comerford.Garda Declan Lambe told the court how he was called to reports of a disturbance at Miller’s Way in Carndonagh on September 30, 2011.McLaughlin’s friend Andrew Drury had earlier mad a 999 call.Garda Lambe entered the house and found Drury sitting on the stairs, directing him to the kitchen.He said Daniel McLaughlin was in an agitated state and covered in blood and demanding to know if there was a search warrant.The garda said he entered the kitchen and saw a large bread knife covered in blood. He looked down and saw Brian McLaughlin Logue lying on the floor covered in blood.The stab victim was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries but after several weeks went on to make a full recovery.When interviewed, Daniel said he didn’t remember what had happened.“I must have flipped, I went clean mental,” he told gardai.He remembered a fight on the street outside but not the stabbing.“Why that happened I don’t know; I went bananas, I went nuts,” he said.The garda said the two men had since settled their differences and Daniel McLaughlin was now a changed man who had not been in trouble with gardai since then.Ms Arthurs told the court that the McLaughlin children had been subjected to “physical abuse and torture by their mother when they were young”.Their father Patrick, who was away working in Dublin most of the time, had not been aware of the situation at home, said the social worker.Elizabeth McLaughlin, who died in a house fire in 2010, would pick on another sibling Jonathan.“She once used evostick glue to stop bleeding from a wound,” said Ms Arthurs.“She deliberately didn’t feed him; she starved him. And she punished Daniel when he tried to feed his brother.”Ms Arthurs said Daniel is very remorseful for stabbing his friend.“He has tried to turn things around. He has stopped drink and drugs and is receiving treatment at a mental health unit. All the children have struggled with adult life because of what went on in their childhood,” she said.Defence barrister Peter Nolan said the case was ‘tragic’ but that Daniel had not been in trouble since, and was working with all those who would help him.He was also undergoing radical new treatment to tackle his addictions.After listening to the case Judge Francis Comerford said it had been a horrible assault. However he wanted to monitor Daniel McLaughlin further and agreed to delay passing sentence until January 2016.He ordered McLaughlin to continue undergoing new methods of treatment and to stay away from alcohol and drugs.MAN WHO STABBED PAL AFTER ‘GOING BANANAS’ WAS VICTIM OF TORTURE BY HIS MOTHER was last modified: April 30th, 2015 by John2Share 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:CarndonaghDaniel McLaughlinEnda McLaughlinstabbing

LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL CUTS: ‘I MISCARRIED OUR BABY AND CLOSING GYNAE IS SO WRONG’LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL CUTS: ‘I MISCARRIED OUR BABY AND CLOSING GYNAE IS SO WRONG’
THE NEW MEDICAL WING AT LKGH – BUT AT WHAT COST?A CO DONEGAL woman who suffered a miscarriage has made a last minute heartfelt plea to the HSE to save the gynaecology ward at Letterkenny General Hospital.The woman, who doesn’t want to be named, says hospital management cannot replicate the level of service and care at the Gynae Ward in the new Medical Unit due to be opened next month.Management want to move staff from Gynae to the new centre – and say they cannot open the new hospital extension without them. In a heartfelt plea, the woman told Donegal Daily: “I miscarried our first baby and was looked after to the highest standard in the gynae ward. Myself and my husband where totally and utterly devastated and the staff where so understanding, considerate and professionally trained to deal with our situation.“From the minute I went in and realised I was miscarrying the staff were brilliant.“You can’t explain the emptiness you feel after a D&C, I was so empty and lonely and dreading going back down to the ward from theatre, and it helped immensely to hear that I was going into a private room afterwards as they never put anyone back into the open ward after such an ordeal and that my husband could stay the night with me as we were both so upset and lonesome.“It certainly made things easier. Our baby’s name was recorded in their special book and the chaplain was sent to us before we took our baby home to be burried.” And she added: “I could not imagine this same care being possible within a seriously busy ward as Surgical 2 or any other ward for that matter.“And the staff were used to dealing with our situation and knew exactly what to say and do to help.” LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL CUTS: ‘I MISCARRIED OUR BABY AND CLOSING GYNAE IS SO WRONG’ was last modified: August 31st, 2012 by BrendaShare 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)
