Parking meters to be installed

first_imgGeorgetown will soon get parking meters as City Hall moves to introduce this new system by September. This was announced by the Chairman of the National Parking Systems (NPS) and the Director of Smart City Solutions, Kamau Cush after the recent signing of the contract between NPS and the Georgetown Mayor and City Council (M&CC).Of significance however, was the total cost attached to the provisions of the parking meters. The Chairman of NPS and the Director of Smart City Solutions said the cost for the first phase of setup of this technology is more than US$10 million and this will increase with each phase. He did not specify how many phases there would be but instead said that this investment will assist in making the President’s dream of a clean and green Guyana become a reality, while reducing the congestion and accumulating revenue.“The cost for the first phase is north of US$10 million and as we move forward it will be more but President Granger has articulated a vision of a clean and green Guyana in general, and a clean and green Georgetown in particular, and so the Mayor and Councils of the City of Georgetown have embraced that vision. We at Smart City Solutions share that vision and with the introduction of our on street paid parking systems; this will be one step forward in the movement towards actualising President Granger’s vision. The meters will contribute to a reduction of pollution, reduction of congestion in our city, regulation of traffic and more significantly, it will create a brand new stream in Georgetown,” Cush said.Cush told Guyana Times that 3000 spaces would be allocated for parking, with a parking meter attached to every 10 spaces, totalling 300 parking meters being installed in busy areas, charging $125 every 15 minutes, allowing an expected yearly income of approximately $100-$200 million. He indicated that this revenue will be used by the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) to facilitate the amenities and services that it is mandated to deliver, adding that installations of the parking meters would begin in September 2016 with an intention of being concluded by September month end.However, Cush relayed that there will be a reduced cost of $100 per trip for taxi and minibus operators. “What we are proposing for the minibus and taxi drivers in the various parking lots is $100, once they come in, they pay $100 fill up then leave, then they come back, pay another $100 and move. For those drivers, the just have to pay $100 for however long they take to fill up, it doesn’t matter. It will be counted by trips for them.”According to Cush, in a press conference held on Friday, the proposal for the country to endorse parking meters was made 20 years ago, and it has been three years since workers have commenced preparations to facilitate the installations, highlighting that workers have currently been assigned to measuring the length and widths of every road in Georgetown.It was also explained to this publication that while there will be consultations with members of the Guyana Police Force, in terms of security, the primary law enforcements to be assigned would be the City Constabulary Officers.Meanwhile, when Guyana Times spoke to a few drivers in Georgetown, there was a mixture of displeasure and acceptance to this new initiation by the M&CC. While some agreed with the decision to have the parking meters installed, others referred to the move as “thoughtless” and “burdensome.”last_img read more

A 49ers victory worth noting

first_img7:52: Spot Vic Cegles on his cell phone, and a few weeks ago I would have been suspicious he was busy talking to a future 49ers head coaching candidate. But I doubt that’s what he was doing this time. Or was he? It happened Saturday night between Long Beach State and Cal Poly in the Big West Conference title game at the Anaheim Convention Center: 7:47: Val Rodriguez, the famous letter-to-the-editor writer and one-time Banning High soccer coach, comes up and confides to me that the 49ers are destined to win. One thing about Mr. Rodriguez, he’s never afraid to go out on the limb. 8:07: Aaron Nixon hits 3-pointer to open the scoring. 8:09: Titus Shelton, a 6-7, 240-pound forward and son of former NBA player Lonnie Shelton, drills his second basket to give the Mustangs their first lead. 8:13 Oh no. What’s going on here? Derek Stockalper sinks a 3-pointer to make it 10-7 in favor of the Mustangs. 8:17: Timeout on the floor. And, oh, do the 49ers need it, as they fall behind 13-7. The 49ers have missed 9 of their first 12 shots, while the Mustangs have hit 6 of 11. 8:24: Dawin Whitten makes it 17-11 with a couple of free throws. 8:25: From very long range, Kejuan Johnson draws the 49ers to within 19-16 with a 3 pointer. Is the tide finally turning? 8:28: Chaz Thomas, a Mike Bibby lookalike, converts a three-point play after being fouled, making an incredibly difficult layup. These Mustangs apparently aren’t going away. 8:29: The 49ers seem disoriented. Sterling Byrd is free for a dunk shot – and clangs it off the rim. 8:30: The left-handed Thomas makes a 3- pointer to make it 25-18. 8:33: 49ers miss three shots at point blank range. Nothing is going their way at this ominous juncture. 8:36: Great shot by Aaron Nixon, as he fades away and throws up a rainbow that somehow drops through to draw the 49ers within 27-23. 8:37: These Mustangs certainly aren’t playing like underdogs as Trae Clark penetrates and throws a pass out to a wide-open Tyler McGinn, who drains a 3-pointer to give the Mustangs a 30-23 lead. 8:41: Clark connects on another 3-pointer to give the Mustangs their biggest lead at 33-23 with 2:59 left until intermission. 8:43: Thunder dunk by Mark Dawson has the 49er fans finally roaring again. 8:45: Aaron Nixon’s 3-pointer has them roaring even louder as they draw to within 33-30. 8:48: Halftime. The 49ers have played about as poorly as they can, but trail by only five points, 35-30. No way they could play this poorly in the final 20 minutes, is there? 8:50: My cell phone rings, and, lo and behold, who should it be but the one-time president of Long Beach State, Dr. Robert (Fightin’ Bob) Maxson, watching the proceedings with wife Sylvia up at their home in the San Juan Islands in Washington. “The ‘Beach has Cal Poly right where they want them,” he says, confidently. 9:05: Kejuan Johnson ties it at 35 with a 3.The 49ers finally seem quite aroused. 9:07: Another 3 by Kejuan gives the 49ers their first lead at 40-39. 9:09: Bob Maxson might be right. The 49ers are on fire They’re now ahead 47-41 after a Reggie Byrd 3-pointer. 9:12: The Mustangs won’t go away. They’ve cut their margin to 49-47 as Stockalper, a 6-5 all-Big West player, connects. 9:17: Suddenly, the 49ers cool off. It’s now tied at 49 on two Stockalper free throws. 9:18: Suddenly, the Mustangs are ahead 51-49 on a Clark floater. 9:21: Timeout. 51-51. To coin an original phrase, what a barnburner! 9:24: Long Beach back up at 54-51. Naturally, it’s an Aaron Nixon 3-pointer that does it. 9:27: Steal by Kevin Houston, who throws a high pass to Mark Dawson, who dunks it for as 58-53 edge. Are the 49ers finally in command? 9:28: It appears that way. Two Houston free throws give Long Beach a 60-53 advantage. The 49ers suddenly look quicker, fresher and stronger than the fading Mustangs. 9:31: 49ers continue to pull away, 62-53, as Dawson, an active presence all over the court, scores again. 9:34: There’s 7:35 left, as Nixon converts two free throws to give the 49ers an 11-point margin, 64-53. Now I’m going out on the limb, and predict boldly that the 49ers are going to emerge victorious. 9:37: It is over, as Nixon keeps up his barrage to make it 68-55. Where is the NCAA going to send the 49ers? 9:39: The 49ers fans are going bananas. Why didn’t I bring my Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach ear plugs? It’s 72-58 with 5:14 left. 9:40: Timeout. Vic Cegles stands and cheers. But are those cheers for Larry Reynolds, whose team soon will be 24-7 and whose record the past two seasons is now 42-19? 9:46: ‘You’re not Bibby!” chants the Long Beach students mockingly as Chaz Thomas is at the free-throw line. 9:47: Houston hits a 3-pointer to make it 75-63. 9:50: The Mustangs are fouling intentionally. Will I make deadline with 2:19 left? 9:51: Nixon hits two free throws, and now has 29 for the evening. 9:54: Kejuan Johnson has angry words with Dawin Whiten when Whiten fouls him. There’s 1:27 left as Johnson hits two free throws to give the 49ers a 79-69 lead. 10:05: It’s over. The final score is 94-83 and the 49ers are in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1995 when Seth Greenberg was their coach. Larry Reynolds is their coach now, and should be for another year after this rousing 49ers season. 10:07: The students rush on to the floor in a mad dash in celebration.

You’re all set!center_img 7:55: Spot the Boy Wonder, F. King Alexander, the Long Beach State president, seated next to one of his top administrators, Dr. Doug Robinson, vice president of student services. They look quite composed and relaxed. 7:58: The 49ers’ rooting section, featuring a lot of shirtless guys with painted faces, recites a chant I’ve never heard before at a sporting event. “Our band’s better … our band’s better … our band’s better,” they shriek, believing their musicians are superior to those from San Luis Obispo. 8:04: Player introductions. 8:05 What a racket by the Long Beach students. “Long Beach State! Long Beach State! Long Beach State!” they’re screaming. My ears already hurt. 8:06: Play ball, as veteran official Jim Stupin, who’s worked three Final Fours and lives in Cypress, throws the ball up. The 49ers gain possession. last_img read more

DONEGAL MATHS BUFF KEEPING IRISH NAVY STUDYING AT SEA

first_imgA Donegal maths buff is helping the Irish Naval Service study for their Leaving Cert exams.The E-learning Initiative was launched by the Irish Naval Service and TheMathsTutor.ie – the idea of Carndonagh man Eamonn Toland.Custom-built for the new Project Maths syllabus, TheMathsTutor.ie system will enable Navy personnel to continue studying while at sea as well as ashore. This means they can obtain their Leaving Certificate much sooner than if they attend a traditional college, which would require that they are shore-based for the full duration of their study.Lt Cdr Conor Kirwan, commanding officer of L.É. Orla, said “The Naval Service strives to provide all personnel with the opportunity for personal development and associated professional experience in order to realise their full potential during their time in Service.“TheMathsTutor.ie system will give people who have not completed Leaving Cert Maths the opportunity to complete this milestone exam for their own development. It will also open up new career avenues for them as Leaving Cert Maths is a key requirement for entry into Naval Service apprenticeship programmes and for certain promotions.”The system is being rolled out initially on L.É. Orla, with the expectation that other ships will follow suit the following year. TheMathsTutor.ie the Leaving Certificate course will be used by navy personnel who are completing their sea rotation on board ship in their own time instead of waiting for their shore rotation and attending a traditional college.Eamonn Toland, founder of TheMathsTutor.ie, said “We are very proud to be chosen to provide maths e-learning support to the Irish Naval Service. This is an organisation which places a high value on mathematical ability and problem-solving skills to fulfil its mission, and which is very willing to invest in appropriate training for its personnel.”Initially supporting individual students, there are currently more than 4000 secondary school students and teachers using the e-learning resource.In its latest phase of development, TheMathsTutor.ie is now extending its reach through licencing to schools and other organisations including the Irish Naval Service.Toland concluded by saying “The aims of the new Project Maths syllabus are to develop problem-solving skills, to relate maths to everyday experience, and to explore real-life applications of maths. The work of the Naval Service is a wonderful illustration of all of these aspects of maths. We are delighted to support Naval Service personnel in acquiring and building these skills, and to obtain the qualifications required for career progression.” DONEGAL MATHS BUFF KEEPING IRISH NAVY STUDYING AT SEA was last modified: May 27th, 2013 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:CarndonaghEamonn TolandIrish Navymathslast_img read more

Crips founder wants evidence examined

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN FRANCISCO – Stanley Tookie Williams, a founder of the Crips street gang, is trying to head off a Dec. 13 execution date by asking the California Supreme Court to reopen the case, his attorneys said Friday. Among other things, Williams’ representatives say forensic testing may have falsely sent him to Death Row. Williams’ lawyer wants California’s justices to allow the re-examination of evidence that showed a shotgun registered to Williams was used to kill three people during a motel robbery in 1979. They said conclusions that a shell casing found at the scene matched the shotgun were based on “junk science.” “The shotgun evidence isn’t reliable,” Pasadena attorney Verna Wefald said Friday. “There isn’t any question about this.” They also want records about a witness who secured Williams’ conviction of a fourth and final murder. That witness, now imprisoned in Canada for murder, testified that he and Williams robbed a convenience store and Williams killed the clerk, Albert Owens. Defense lawyers say his credibility is questionable. Nathan Barankin, a spokesman for Attorney General Bill Lockyer, said the government would oppose reopening the case. The justices on Thursday gave Lockyer’s office until Nov. 18 to formally respond to the discovery motion. “He has been rejected by every state and federal court that has heard Williams’ prior appeals,” Barankin said. “What they all determined was Williams was guilty.” Williams, 51, is in line to become one of three California condemned inmates to be executed within months. He was condemned in 1981, but has maintained his innocence. He claims, among other things, that fabricated testimony sent him to Death Row. He also says Los Angeles County prosecutors violated his rights when they dismissed all potential black jurors from his case. The California Supreme Court, the federal trial and appellate courts, and the U.S. Supreme Court have already ruled against him. Williams also is seeking clemency from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for killing Owens, the 7-Eleven clerk; and Yen-I Yang, Tsai-Shai Chen Yang and Yu-Chin Yang Lin. Those three were gunned down two weeks after Owens when their motel was robbed. While in San Quentin State Prison, Williams has been nominated five times for a Nobel Peace Prize and four times for the Nobel Prize for literature for his series of children’s books and international peace efforts intended to curtail youth gang violence. Williams and a high school friend, Raymond Washington, started the Crips street gang in Los Angeles in 1971. The case is California v. Williams, S004365.last_img read more

Airbus delivers first A321neo.

first_imgAIRBUS has handed over its first A321neo to launch customer Virgin America at a ceremony in Hamburg, Germany.The biggest member of the A320neo family has been a success for the European manufacturer with more than 1300 aircraft on order as airlines move to take advantage of its increased seating capacity and extended range.The 185-seat plane was in Virgin Atlantic livery, a paint job unlikely to last long given the announcement by new owner Alaska Airlines that it intends to retire the brand, probably in 2019.The A321neo is powered by CFM LEAP-1A engines that help deliver the aircraft’s 15 per cent improvement in efficiency. “With our largest, latest, most fuel efficient NEO Single Aisle aircraft we are turning a new page, Airbus Commercial Aircraft president Fabrice Brégier said in a statement. “The new A321neo powered by next generation CFM LEAP-1A engines guarantees new levels of efficiency and longer range to its operators, greater comfort to the flying public and less emissions and noise to the airport communities.’’The A321neo has a 24 per cent higher capacity than Virgin America’s A320s and will offer three classes of service, touch-screen personal entertainment and power outlets at every seat.Virgin agreed to lease 10 A321neos from lessor GECAS and the aircraft delivered Thursday is expected to enter service on May 31 with an inaugural flight from San Francisco International Airport to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. The airline has an all-Airbus fleet that includes A320s and A319s.last_img read more
