  • 2 foreign companies bid for clean energy generation

    first_imgGreen Bartica PlanGovernment has moved onto the second component of the bidding process after accepting bids from two foreign companies for the generation of clean energy as part of its plan to make Bartica, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) a model green town.The “Green Bartica Plan” which was introduced to the new town back in December, is a holistic approach to sustainable economic growth.On Thursday, the Public Infrastructure Ministry with assistance from the Hinterland Electrification Company Inc (HEC) and the Guyana Energy Agency (GEA), initiated the second component of the Request for Proposal (RFP) with the opening of proposals for wind energy, hydropower energy, bio-mass energy, waste-to-energy and tidal energy.The opening of the bids took place at the GEA’s office. The two tenders were from Selva Global of the United Kingdom (UK), while the other was from GP Energy Ltd out of Trinidad and Tobago.The Public Infrastructure Ministry solicited competitive proposals from suitable firms, as an Independent Power Producer (IPP), as part of the Green Bartica Plan.The opening of the bids marked the second and final component of this arm of the initiative. The first component was the opening of bids in relation to the use of solar energy which occurred in February of this year.Following an evaluation, a shortlist of qualified firms will be formally engaged by the Ministry and invited to submit full comprehensive proposals.The selected IPP’s role will be to design and develop a generation system utilising an appropriate renewable energy technology, or combination of technologies, under a Build Own Operate and Transfer (BOOT) structure to supply electricity to the Bartica grid under a negotiated and agreed Power Purchase Agreement.The main objectives of the Green Bartica Plan are to create a climate resilient economy and to establish a green pathway for the foundation of a new Guyana, which will result in reducing the overall carbon footprint in electricity, agriculture, fisheries, water, forestry, waste, manufacturing, transport, construction, tourism and other sectors.last_img read more

  • CULTIVATING AND MAINTAINING THE HABIT OF THANKFULNESS (GRATITUDE) (PART FIVE): WHEN TO GIVE THANKS

    first_imgIn this fifth article of the series centered on the mechanics and necessity of thanksgiving particular attention will be paid to the question of when are we to give thanks to God? We have already considered why should we give thanks (purpose/reason), how to give thanks (mechanics), what to give thanks to God for (substance), and now our attention is on when are we to show gratitude to God and one another? Should thanksgiving be made always? Or are there times when it is inappropriate to be thankful? Should we be thankful to someone who is mean and nasty to us? Let us examine below. The fourth article on what to thank to God and one another for noted the following points: What then shall we give thanks for? In a significant sense, we give thanks and ought to thank God for everything, good or bad. Nowhere in Scripture is this command or teaching to give thanks in all situations clearer than in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 and Romans 8:28. Let us quote them in full and see how they speak to the need for us mortals to be thankful to God for all conditions of life: “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose.” These verses are saying that we should give thanks to God in everything and for everything. By doing we are not putting a false label on evil and call evil good or that evil is not evil. Rather we are confident that God can and will take us through every situation and that everything will eventually work out in our favor. We thank God in every situation because we know that his grace is sufficient for us at all times and in all places.We should not thank people who do us harm but we thank God who alone can use the evil intent and action of others to make us better, make us stronger and make us more like God who makes his rain to fall on the good and the evil and his sun to rise on the righteous and the unrighteous. By behaving this way frees us from bitterness and hatred and turns us towards goodwill towards all. It is very difficult to thank God when the worst happens to us, but we can if we will and God will supply the wisdom and strength to do so. By thanking God for everything we put our total trust in him and are assured that all will turn out well for us in the end. Thanking God in all circumstances confirms our dependence on him who never fails. This way also gives us strength and joy beyond our normal human capacity.When is it right and appropriate to give thanks to God and fellow human beings? The clear simple biblical teaching is that we thank God always and for every situation (1 Thessalonians 5:17). We thank God when all is well as well as when all is bad with us. Why? Because we believe and know that since he is with us, around us and within us, we always triumph ultimately. We ought to thank God in the morning, in the evening, in the day and in the night, when we are well and when we are sick, when we succeed and when we fail. We should be thankful to God when we have plenty and when have little or nothing, when we are full and when we are hungry. Thanksgiving is appropriate on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and everyday that God gives us.We always show gratitude to others by saying “thank you” sincerely when they are kind to us in many different ways such as giving us food, clothes, a place to stay, direction, advice, school fees, and any kind of support. It is also fitting to thank groups and institution that are kind to us by enabling us bear the heavy loads along many life’s journeys. It is good to be grateful to institutions and groups that educate us, that show us what it means to be human, that make us learn how to be concerned about others and not just about ourselves and ours.While it might be liberating to be forgiving towards those who treat us bad, do us harm in myriad ways and that we should never seek their downfall, it will be unwise to be thankful to those who hurt us unnecessarily. It would be inappropriate to thank those whose avowed aim is to harm us and our interests. We have a Christian duty to help them realize their wrong ways by being patient with them and doing those things that make them want to change for the better.God can and must be thanked for the good and bad things, persons, situations, and for the opportunities and challenges of life. Even in tough and testing times we can find reasons to be grateful to God. Let me close with a little story I read many years back. The story is about a preacher who always began his sermons by thanking God for the weather. On one particular occasion winter was bleak, one of the worst in living memory. His congregation wondered how he was going to thank God for such weather. But he prayed, “O, God we thank you that the weather is not always like this.” God can be appreciated in difficult times and situations for the good things and times that counter those ugly moments. Let us endeavor to thank God always and for everything.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • FedEx Kinko’s styles clash; not a match to duplicate

    first_imgNo one disputes the facts. Orfalea expanded Kinko’s through partnerships. He sold a large stake to Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, a private equity firm, in 1996. Then, in 2003, Clayton sold Kinko’s to FedEx, which is turning the stores into one-stop shops where a customer can ship packages, print and mail brochures, or send data over computers. But there, the agreement ends. Some say Clayton, Dubilier massacred Kinko’s, and that FedEx can never repair the damage. Others say Clayton added discipline to the ’60s-style Kinko’s atmosphere, and that FedEx is continuing that process. “We’ve got three cultures at play here,” said Brian D. Philips, Fedex Kinko’s chief operating officer. But most see cultures at war. “At Kinko’s, there’s a thin veneer of professional folks riding herd on a vast platoon of semitrained people,” said James E. Schrager, clinical professor of entrepreneurship and strategy at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business. “That’s just not the FedEx way.” A result, said Robert Boyden Lamb, a management professor at the Stern School of Business at New York University, is that “these cultures do not gel, they do not hook together at key points.” Even May, who has been with FedEx for 24 years and has run FedEx Kinko’s for two, acknowledges the vast gulf. “Kinko’s was a way station where you stayed a few years, but you build a career at FedEx,” he said. “The Kinko’s people are hip, they’re fun, but they needed oversight.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! DALLAS – Tag along and marvel as Kenneth A. May, the chief executive of FedEx Kinko’s, works a roomful of employees. “How’s your dad?” he knowingly asks a young woman whose father just had surgery. “How’s your rock band coming?” the manager of a Dallas store hears. “Hi, my name is Ken; we haven’t met,” he says to a new hire at another store, extending his hand. The employees seem genuinely glad to banter with him. One could almost think that the integration of Kinko’s into FedEx is going off without a hitch. It is not. Profit margins at Kinko’s have fallen, revenue has barely grown and employee turnover, which was 42 percent in 2005, was still a daunting 27 percent last year. Paul Orfalea, who was nicknamed “Kinko” for the full head of curly black hair he sported in 1970 when he founded the company – originally to serve students at the University of California, Santa Barbara – says he will not step inside the stores now. “It gives me a stomachache to see what’s happened to the place,” Orfalea, now balding, said. But what, actually, has happened? It depends on who is talking. Indeed, the tale of the Kinko’s metamorphosis from a free-wheeling group of copy centers to a buttoned-down subsidiary of FedEx plays like a corporate version of the classic Japanese movie “Rashomon.” To a customer wandering through FedEx Kinko’s stores, it feels pretty much like business as usual. But delve a bit deeper and this merger could serve as a case study of the problems that crop up when companies with synergistic strategies but wildly disparate cultures try to meld. last_img read more

  • One City Rivals: The 20 BIGGEST derbies in world football REVEALED!

    first_img 6) Flamengo v Fluminense: Famous for Squeezing everyone in – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – The Rio derby holds the global attendance record: more than 194,000 crammed into the Maracana in 1963. Typically, it finished 0-0. Flamengo were originally a rowing club, but became a football team in 1911 after dissatisfied Fluminese players defected after a row (no pun intended) with the board. There are several rivalries in Rio, but Fla-Flu is guaranteed a full house. 17) CSKA Moscow v Spartak Moscow: Famous for Political undertones – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – Spartak are the people’s club. CSKA were the team of the Soviet Army, count the Russian Ministry of Defence as a shareholder and were once owned by Roman Abramovich. A case of the haves and the have-nots, then, but Spartak’s best days are behind them. That means the feeling of injustice remains, but the rivalry has suffered. 20) Lazio v Roma: Famous for flares and fascists – Click the arrow to see the 19 biggest derbies in world football – It’s slightly strange that Roma are associated with left-wing politics in the Derby della Capitale: they were founded when Mussolini merged three clubs in an attempt to create a counterpoint to the dominance of Juventus and the Milans. Lazio refused to join. Both sets of Ultras are a violent lot. Note 2004, and a riot that led to 13 arrests and 170 injured police 14) Barcelona SC v Emelec: Famous for League deciders, riots – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – The youngest of our featured games was born only in 1943, when the Guayaquil neighbours first locked horns in the ‘Shipyard Derby’. It has, however, grown over the years thanks to the duo’s dominance in the league and a passionate fanbase. Sadly, rioting and missiles are the norm, and the death of a young Emelec fan struck by a flare in 2007 taints Ecuador’s biggest game. 20 20 9) Benfica v Sporting Lisbon: Famous for Closeness – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – These Lisbon neighbours are too close for comfort, with just 3km separating the grounds. The problem for the Sportinguistas is that their dominance is a distant memory, so the current rivalry boils down to Benfica rubbing their success in their rivals’ faces every time they visit the Estadio Jose Alvalade – which their fans have dubbed ‘the toilet’ thanks to its tiled facade. 15) Ijsselmeervogels v SV Spakenburg: Famous for Pigs, planes, pyrotechnics – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – Planes overhead (long before David Moyes’ boys), fireworks and ticker tape galore, 70 per cent of the local town in attendance, and a pig on the pitch. Welcome to the Dutch third division, where the little village of Spakenburg in the north of Holland is split down the middle twice a year, and alcohol sales are banned across the whole village until the full-time whistle goes. 19) East Bengal v Mohun Bagan: Famous for Fish, prawns, violence – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – The Kolkata derby can draw bigger crowds than cricket to the Salt Lake Stadium. It’s tradition for fans of the losing side to go hungry post-match, while the victors feast on prawns or hilsa fish (depending on allegiance). In 2012, Mohun Bagan’s Syed Nabi was rushed to hospital after being hit by a stone thrown by his own fans. Ouch. 20 20 20 20 1) Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid: Famous for Underdogs finally biting back – Nine points. That’s what Atletico Madrid were worth to their famous neighbours each season: the six that Real Madrid would take from Atletico, plus the three that Atletico took from Barcelona. Hidden in the giant shadow of El Clasico, the Madrid derby was a joke. Except it wasn’t funny, because everyone knew the punchline. Real won. Until recently. A cathartic victory in the 2013 Copa del Rey final (Atletico’s first win over Real since 1999) gave Atletico a taste for it. They won on their next trip to the Bernabeu, claimed La Liga and have beaten Real twice already this season. But the big, blanco elephant in the room is that Atletico came up agonisingly short against Real in the Champions League final in May. At least now it’s no longer a mismatch: the champions of Europe face off against the champions of Spain. There’s no higher quality derby in the world. 20 13) Celtic v Rangers: Famous for Sectarianism, frequency (formerly) – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – World famous, ferocious, historic – but a match that hasn’t been played in two-and-a-half years. Yet Rangers’ meltdown isn’t the only reason for an Old Firm being ‘just’ 13th. This was a derby fairly recently graced by Brian Laudrup, Paul Gascoigne and Henrik Larsson. Judging on this season, however, Bianca Gascoigne could get a game for either side. 20 5) Olympiakos v Panathinaikos: Famous for Ultraviolence – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – The derby of Athens’ eternal enemies is getting increasingly violent. In 2012 it was abandoned after petrol bombs were set off in the stands. Last year, Panathinaikos boss Giannis Anastasiou was floored by an object thrown from the crowd. Thousands of police were deployed at last weekend’s fixture to try to prevent trouble, but Anastasiou still got himself sent off. 20 20 20 3) Manchester United v Manchester City: Famous for Noisy neighbours, Denis Law – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – A friendly camaraderie before the Second World War, then it turned ugly in the 1970s. Has been amped up since the blue half of Manchester won the Abu Dhabi lottery. Notable moments from recent years include City’s 6-1 embarrassment of United at Old Trafford, Michael Owen scoring a 97th-minute winner in a 4-3 classic, and Wayne Rooney’s overhead kick in 2011. 10) Arsenal v Tottenham: Famous for Goalfests – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – Emmanuel Adebayor and Sol Campbell’s respective departures played a part, but the resurgence of Tottenham is the major factor behind reigniting an age-old rivalry that previously saw Arsenal as much the better side. Both have dreadful defences, which has meant 42 goals in their past 11 games. A treat. 4) Al Ahly v Zamalek: Famous for Violence on and off pitch – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – When the Egyptian Premier League has had to cancel two of their past three seasons because of political unrest and fan violence, it is perhaps no mean feat to be known as the most fearsome derby in the league. A fixture that has had to be abandoned four times, this game divides Cairo down the middle between the red of Al Ahly and white of Zamalek, and even sees a foreign referee flown in because all the Egyptian officials are said to have a leaning towards one of the clubs. 20 20 16) Universidad de Chile v Colo Colo: Famous for Numerous battles of Santiago – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – An old-school derby: rucks, rancour and red cards. Colo Colo are Chile’s most successful team, with 30 league titles. Universidad de Chile have 16. The pair are vying for the title again this season. Colo Colo cut into La U’s lead in a 2-0 win last month, with just the two sendings off, a headbutt and a mass brawl in that one. 18) Bolivar v The Strongest: Famous for Altitude, intellectuals – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – Played at altitude in La Paz, Bolivia’s Clasico Paceno sees Club Bolivar, founded by intellectuals, take on The Strongest, a team of mercenary soldiers backed by an evil corporation in a Saturday morning cartoon. The Strongest won the league last season, two points ahead of Bolivar. The nerds, however, have the upper hand overall. 7) Fenerbahce v Galatasaray: Famous for Graeme’s flagpole – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – This season, Galatasaray fans chose to recreate – via a gigantic stadium flag – the moment 19 years ago when their then boss-slashpsychopath Graeme Souness ran on to the Fenerbahce pitch and planted a Galatasaray flag in the middle. Somehow, that insult delighted one half of Istanbul more even than the preceding victory. A rivalry fuelled by petty hatred and chaos: we love it.

Passion: tick. Global appeal: tick. Inter held sway in the distant past, while the Rossoneri ruled the roost in the 80s and 90s. The games themselves are goose-bump inducing, with flares, flags and foul language. Let down by a lack of games of trophy-deciding importance. 20 20 2) Boca Juniors v River Plate: Famous for Atmosphere, intensity, resurgence – Click the arrow to see the biggest derby in world football – After a season in the lower leagues, River Plate returned to win the top tier last year. Great news for River, terrible news for the Buenos Aires police force. “Derby day in Buenos Aires makes the Old Firm game look like a primary school kick-about,” explains Scottish journalist Gavin Hamilton. With 70 per cent of the country said to have an allegiance one way or the other, you can see why. 8) Everton v Liverpool: Famous for Fire and friendliness – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – England’s oldest top-flight derby. Fiery games full of red cards and goals. Loud and – at times – mutually respectful fans (witness the Hillsborough solidarity). So why a spot outside the top five? Well frankly, in the 1980s, this game was the title decider. In the Premier League era, it’s been more often about European qualification. So, not even the most important derby in the north-west. 20 12) Nacional v Penarol: Famous for Success, social divides – Click the arrow to see the biggest derbies in world football – The ‘Uruguayan Clasico’ is South America’s oldest derby, these Montevideo teams share all of 85 league titles between them. Originally the Central Uruguay Railway Cricket Club, Penarol was the team of the European immigrants, while Nacional formed in 1899 as a team for native Uruguayans. The rivalry burns as fiercely today, even if its profile remains low compared to, say, Argentine cousin Boca-River. 20last_img read more

  • Pochettino hints he could stay at Spurs after final defeat

    first_img0Shares0000Mauricio Pochettino (L) has been linked with a move away from Spurs this summer © AFP / OSCAR DEL POZOMADRID, Spain, Jun 2 – Mauricio Pochettino kept tight-lipped about his future as Tottenham Hotspur coach after his side lost the Champions League final to Liverpool on Saturday.The Argentine has been linked with a move to Italian champions Juventus and German giants Bayern Munich but suggested he may stay to try to guide Spurs to another final after their 2-0 defeat in Madrid. “When you live this experience you want to do it again. I hope we can do it again in the future,” Pochettino told BT Sport.“It’s about trying, it’s about believing, it’s about building, and I hope it happens again as soon as possible.”Spurs fell behind to a Mohamed Salah penalty almost straight after kick-off but were the better side after the break, before Divock Origi arrowed in a second late on.Pochettino has said he wants clarity on Tottenham’s ambitions before the start of next season and said on Saturday he would be holding talks with the club.“Now is the time to stay calm, change the mood, for sure we are going to have time to talk,” said Pochettino.“It is not a moment now to talk too much. You can interpret things in different ways. People want to compare me with different managers but they don’t know that we are in a different project in a different position and different place.“In five years at Tottenham the project was so clear, our ambition was amazing, and the commitment from the players was amazing — the club played their first Champions League final.”Pochettino made the decision to start Harry Kane, despite the striker not playing a match in almost two months.Kane had just recovered from an ankle injury and struggled for chances against a resilient Liverpool defence.“It’s not about playing with Harry Kane or Lucas Moura,” Pochettino said.“We had to make a decision and of course for me, Harry Kane after one month and a half finished the game fresh.“He didn’t score like other players but it’s not a point to talk about too much. My decision I promise was about analytics and thinking with all the information. I don’t regret my decision.”Spurs were never at their best during a subdued match at the Wanda Metropolitano, forced to chase the game after Moussa Sissoko conceded a penalty after 23 seconds.“You never believe that after one minute you’re going to be 1-0 down, a situation that not only changed our plans, it changed the dynamic (of the game),” Pochettino said.“I’m very proud with the effort, how we fought. We played so well, we played so well in the second half. I feel so proud, there is nothing else to say.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
