  • ‘Saving Guyana from deafness’ campaign yielding results – Dr Quaicoe

    first_imgIt has been 20 years since the Audiology Department of the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) established a campaign to save Guyana from deafness and international social relations, the journey which has continued, is now yielding results.Audiological Physician at the GPHC, Dr Ruth Quaicoe, explained that deafness begins for most Guyanese due to the constant exposure to loud decibels of sounds from stereos or industrial noises.She explained that children who are born with hearing impairment, which is a serious condition, must be identified from the inception because if not, their speech cannot be developed.Dr Quaicoe making checks on a newborn at the GPHCIn Guyana, there are rehabilitative services available which can assist those who are born with congenital hearing loss. According to Quaicoe, if a child who is suffering from a hearing impediment does not receive a hearing aid by the age of five, it is likely that they won’t develop speech for the rest of their life.Within the first 24 hours of birth, every child who is born at the GPHC undergoes Automated Optoacoustic Emission (AOE) screening. A final diagnosis is determined when the test is repeated three months later.The specialist urged all Guyanese to make it their first priority to care for their hearing by wearing protective gear, avoid listening to loud music and resisting the tendencies to consume alcohol.“If you work at an environment where there is loud music or machines are loud, after the first few days your ear will try to repair itself so the hearing comes back so we have a temporary threshold shift whereby you lose your hearing and then it comes back. But after about 10 years the hearing doesn’t come back, the threshold will be lost and all you can rely on is your residual hearing,” Quaicoe explained.Hearing loss can also be attributed due to a person’s lifestyle, which includes non-communicable diseases (NCDs), working in a noisy industrial site and listening to loud music. It affects not only the physical aspect of a person, but also their social life. Dr Quaicoe is urging all Guyanese to wear protective gear, avoid listening to loud music and resist the tendencies to consume alcohol.Over the years, she noted that hearing aids have helped the older generations in restoring their hearing. Starkey Hearing Foundation has donated approximately 700 hearing aids to Guyana within the past two years and will be donating another 400 this week.last_img read more

  • Matthews hires lawyer, denies any wrongdoing

    first_img“Gary wishes to cooperate with Major League Baseball, the Los Angeles Angels and any other investigative agency that may look into this matter,” lawyer Robert Shapiro said Saturday. “He is eager to tell his side of the story and looks forward to providing a statement once all investigations into the matter have been completed. Gary Matthews Jr.’s lawyer is convinced the Angels’ outfielder hasn’t violated any laws or major league rules even though his name surfaced in a widespread steroids investigation that has resulted in nine arrests. Matthews, in his first season with Los Angeles after a breakout year with Texas, was allegedly sent human growth hormone from a pharmacy. The Times Union of Albany, which first disclosed the investigation, reported that the names of Matthews, former baseball star Jose Canseco and former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield were allegedly included on customer lists for Applied Pharmacy Services in Mobile, Ala. “However, it is my long standing policy not to allow clients to comment while an investigation is ongoing. To do so would be inappropriate and I believe irresponsible.” center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

  • Is VAR ready for Premier League rollout?

    first_img0Shares0000Not so instant replay: Players wait for the VAR decision on Juan Mata’s ‘goal’ which was ruled out © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 19 – VAR technology is back in the spotlight after Manchester United’s Juan Mata was controversially denied a goal in a confusing incident that raises questions over whether it is ready for a Premier League rollout.The video assistant referee system has been trialled in hundreds of matches around the world to review key moments linked to goals, penalty decisions, red-card incidents and cases of mistaken identity. Football’s governing body FIFA will decide next month whether to officially endorse the VAR system, a move that could see the controversial technology used at the World Cup.The Premier League is lagging behind the Bundesliga and Serie A, which are testing the technology this season but Saturday’s incident, which saw a Mata goal cancelled out after a lengthy delay, was just the latest in a series of contentious moments involving VAR in England.AFP Sports looks at the key issues that must be resolved.Is it reliable?Hawk-Eye, whose goal-line technology used in the Premier League has been widely regarded as a success, apologised for providing “an incorrect graphic” to broadcasters during United’s FA Cup fifth-round game at Huddersfield on Saturday.“To confirm, the VAR saw the correct image with the correct lines to make the decision. This was a case of the wrong image being provided to the broadcaster and we apologise,” Hawk-Eye said in a statement.However, it raises doubts over a core concept — will the technology be in a better position to make correct decisions than the match officials?“Saturday made me wonder how far we can trust the technology to arrive at incontestable decisions, which is strange given that is the point of it,” the former head of Premier League referees, Keith Hackett, wrote in the Telegraph newspaper.United boss Jose Mourinho says there must be irrefutable proof that VAR can consistently lead to better decisions.“I think our game is so beautiful that to change we have to change for better,” said Mourinho, whose side won 2-0 despite the disallowed goal.“The technology on the goal line I’m really, really happy with that. If they find a way in the VAR that the VAR is always right and always brings the truth, I’m happy with that.”Waiting gameMata’s disallowed goal also raised another criticism of the system — the time it takes for a final decision to be made.“I think in the future the VAR will be helpful for the referees, who always have a difficult job, and eventually it will bring more justice to football,” Mata wrote in his online blog.Juan Mata and referee Kevin Friend debate the Spaniard’s ‘goal’ that wasn’t © AFP/File / Oli SCARFF“Technology can help football to be more fair, especially nowadays when it seems that the result is the only thing that matters,” he added.“I believe, though, that such technology should be restricted to a few particular actions that are crucial in the game… and especially that the final decision should take less time and be more clear than last Saturday’s.”West Brom coach Alan Pardew complained that two of his players suffered hamstring injuries due to delays in play as three major decisions were referred to VAR in his side’s 3-2 win at Liverpool in the previous round of the FA Cup.Fans in the darkWhile replays of referred decisions are offered to television viewers, unlike in tennis, for example, fans inside the ground are not shown the pictures.“In the stadium, it was bizarre, because we got no evidence of what happened,” Pardew said about his experience at Anfield last month.Despite the Mata decision going in his side’s favour, Huddersfield boss David Wagner also expressed his displeasure at what he sees as robbing fans and players of the emotion of scoring a goal.“Yes, the decision went in our favour but this VAR for me kills the emotion of the game,” said Wagner. “This is why I don’t like it.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

  • Uganda exerts revenge on Starlets in Kigali

  • Kodjia edges Ivory Coast past South Africa

    first_img0Shares0000Ivory Coast striker Jonathan Kodjia tries to beat South Africa keeper Ronwen Williams during their Africa Cup of Nations tie in Cairo on June 24, 2019. PHOTO/CAFCAIRO, Egypt, Jun 24 – Jonathan Kodjia struck the only goal as Ivory Coast defeated South Africa 1-0 in the steamy Cairo heat on Monday in a meeting of former Africa Cup of Nations champions.Ivory Coast won the title for the second time in 2015 but crashed out in the group stage two years ago without a victory and are trying to build a team to match that of its golden generation. Ivory Coast coach Ibrahim Kamara sees Nicolas Pepe as one the young stars who can banish the memories of a disastrous title defence, and the in-demand Lille forward soon demonstrated his talent with a jinking run that ended with Kodjia snatching at a shot from close range.South Africa, who failed to qualify for the 2017 edition, on the other hand have arrived in Egypt as one of the most unpredictable teams.Bafana Bafana scaled the heights at the outset of 2019 qualifying by winning 2-0 in Nigeria, then sank into mediocrity by drawing 0-0 away to lowly-ranked Seychelles.In the first half at Al Salam Stadium where temperatures again peaked around 37 Celsius (98.6 Fahrenheit) they were largely limited to counter-attacks, captain Thulani Hlatshwayo going closest with a header that brushed the roof of the net.Ivory Coast headed home early in Gabon after they were held by Togo and the Democratic Republic of Congo and lost against Morocco, but they nearly took the lead here twice in quick succession around the half-hour.Ivory Coast players celebrate Jonathan Kodjia’s goal against South Africa during their Africa Cup of Nations tie in Cairo on June 24, 2019. PHOTO/CAFAfter a foul on the edge of the South Africa box Pepe, the 22-goal second highest French Ligue 1 scorer last season behind Kylian Mbappe, slammed a thunderous free-kick against the crossbar with Ronwen Williams rooted to the spot.The South Africa goalkeeper then produced a stunning reflex save to keep Kodjia out moments later as the Aston Villa forward ran clean through before needlessly opting for power over precision.Amid the energy-sapping heat both sides made a laboured start to the second half but it eventually burst into life when Kodjia atoned for his earlier miss.Max Gradel was released into space down the left and the winger whipped a precise early ball across to an unmarked Kodjia who stabbed beyond Williams.South Africa substitute Lars Veldwijk tumbled to the ground under pressure from Serge Kanon late on as they pressed for an equaliser, while Pepe was denied a second for Ivory Coast from another free-kick following a flying save by Williams.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
