And if you’re an athlete, and you’re tired, you switch to your mental toughness.”And it wasn’t just in the second set that Santiago and the Lady Bulldogs had to dig into their coach’s teachings as UE once again showed its fight in the fourth set.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

CCJ denies Bisram’s request for early hearing

first_imgBerbice carpenter’s murder…for DPP to withdraw murder chargeRoughly one month after US-based businessman Marcus Bisram’s mother Sharmila Inderjali, challenged the Appeal Court’s denial for an urgent hearing; the CCJ has upheld the court’s ruling, signalling that the applicant’s son will have to wait the continuing at a New York holding facility as he continues to fightMurder accused: Marcus Bisramextradition to Guyana. Local investigators have accused him of ordering several henchmen to kill Berbice Carpenter Fiyazz Narinedatt and make his November 1, 2016, murder appear as a hit-and-run.Inderjali, the applicant, petitioned the courts to expedite the judicial process regarding her bid to have the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) withdraw the murder case. State attorneys, however, contend that Bisram’s lawyers have been abusing the court’s process. In late July, Bisram’s mother had to pay $250,000 his court costs to the State when Appeal Court Justice Rishi Persaud and acting Justices, Dr Arif Bulkan and Rafiq Khan denied her application.She sought an order by the CCJ to grant her special leave against the Appeal Court’s July 31, 2018, decision to dismiss her February 6, 2018, application while Inderjali also wanted the Caribbean-based Justices to abridge the time for which the application can be heard.She had observed through attorneys Sajeev Datadin and Siand Dhurjon that the Appellate Court “failed to appreciate the uniqueness of the case” and its “special circumstances”. She outlined that the prosecution’s evidence relies on that of a single witness, who is youthful and is of “limited intellect”. The mother said also that the Police never alleged that there is any other evidence against Bisram.It was in 2017 that she filed proceedings at the High Court before Justice Navindra Singh where she sought an Order Nisi to prohibit the DPP from pursing the murder charge which was instituted on March 7, 2017, against Bisram. Her grounds were that continued prosecution of her son would, among other things, be “unlawful, unconstitutional, malicious, and without legal foundation. This was based on several events that took place during the Preliminary Inquiry.Radesh Motie, Diadatt Datt, Harri Paul Parsram, Orlando Dickie and Niran Yacoob were the five alleged henchmen who have all been charged for their involvement in the carpenter’s murder. Two of the accused had allegedly confessed to Police that they were ordered by the overseas-based Guyanese businessman to dump the carpenter’s body on the Number 70 Public Road to make his death seem the result of a hit-and-run accident.Additionally, the businessman’s mother and sister have been accused of offering bribes to Police ranks to “duck the case”. Since commencement of the Preliminary Inquiry in Berbice, several persons have been accused of witness tampering.Police said Narinedatt’s murder was ordered after he rejected the New York-based Bisram’s sexual advances at a party two years ago. His charges have been laid, several courts cases have been filed in a bid to discontinue the charges but many of the Justices in Guyana have been ruling unfavourably towards Bisram.last_img read more

Linden to Lethem road remains flooded

first_img…commuters still awaiting Govt interventionIt has been more than a week since the Linden to Lethem road became flooded, making it almost impossible for vehicles to pass and the Public Infrastructure Ministry is still to intervene in the situation to assist commuters.Even as business owners, residents and other users of the road continue to fume over its deplorable state, the Public Infrastructure Ministry, which has responsibility for the maintenance of the road, is yet to make a pronouncement on it and its engineer is yet to pay a visit to the area.Efforts to contact the Public Infrastructure Minister, David Patterson, for an update on Tuesday proved futile, however, the Ministry’s Public Relations Officer, Krest Cummings, told Guyana Times that the Ministry is aware of the situation and its Hinterland Engineer is looking into the situation and seeking ways to provide a quick solution to the problem.Residents of Mahdia, Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni), who usually suffer the harsh effects associated with the condition of the road, have refuted the PRO’s claim, saying that the engineer has not visited the area and the Council has not received any updates on the way forward.Business operators depend on this route to get their goods into Mahdia. A businessman, Neil Jailall, who reached out to this publication on Tuesday reiterated calls for Government intervention. He said when the road is in this state, it is difficult to get supplies into the town. In addition to this, he said the cost is sometimes more than doubled, putting a strain on business operators who have to increase their prices to offset these high transportation costs. This, he said, creates more hardships on residents.Minibuses transporting passengers to Mahdia were forced to stop and occupants were made to brave the flood and assist the driver in getting through the waters.During a recent interview with this publication, Chairman of Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni) Bonaventure Fredericks highlighted the need for competent road contractors to execute these much-needed road works. He pointed out that oftentimes, the road work contracts are being awarded to inexperienced contractors who may not possess the necessary knowledge for building all-weather roads.Residents of Mahdia are pleading with the authorities to offer a long-term solution to this issue.The residents accused the Government of neglect as they have made countless calls for intervention but have not received a response from the subject Ministry.The road users also alleged that a major contributing factor to this issue is the awarding of contracts to inexperienced contractors.The deplorable condition of a section of the Linden to Lethem roadlast_img read more

Red root rot plagued Ohio corn in 2016

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest While there were many great results even after a tough year in 2016, there were some real disappointments too. According to Levi Runkle, a Tri-Ag Products, Inc. agronomist, some of those disappointing corn yields may have been partially the result of a rare issue in Ohio — red root rot. Runkle found the unique challenge for Ohio in a surprising number of fields last year.“This is a rare late season destructive disease that leads to lodging. As we went into harvest we started seeing problems with hybrids that don’t usually have problems with lodging or ear drop,” he said. “As we got to looking at it, we started to see a lot of purpling or red on the roots that looked like insect damage. That is something we typically don’t see here. You see it more in the Delaware or Maryland area.”Red root rot. Photo by Levi Runkle.Red root rot needs the right set of conditions to become a problem.“It is brought on by some type of early stress. For us it could have been from the frost damage last year or an early inoculation of Pythium or Fusarium. As you get into the year, red root rot needs an extended period of stress, which we had with drought stress and higher temperatures,” Runkle said. “Then when we got that large rain event in August, it allowed the inoculant for the red root rot to get in. You can have a really good-looking field and in four or five days it is dead. It completely cannibalizes the stalk and shuts down production and stops packing starch, which really affects grain. We can see 20% yield loss from it. The root mass also decays really fast and your stalk decays fast and it causes a lot of lodging, harvest issues and ear drop. It is really nasty. The higher nighttime temperatures towards the end of August also helped this disease thrive. It is very rare to have all of these things come together in Ohio but it happened last year.”According to the University of Illinois, symptoms of red root rot include red or pink discoloration of the root system and lower stalk tissue, early death and shriveling showing up just prior to corn maturity. The red color is deeper and darker than that of Gibberella stalk and root rot and the symptoms can vary among different corn hybrids. The rotting of the roots below ground can lead to wilting and grayish green foliage, premature plant death, and lodging in four to five days.University of Illinois experts said the Phoma terrestris fungus that causes red root rot is associated with Pythium and Fusarium species and can survive in soils with a wide range of temperature and pH conditions. It overwinters as microsclerotia in soil. High yield conditions and moderate temperatures favor the disease.In many cases Runkle thinks red root rot was a problem in more 2016 fields that people realized because other more common issued were blamed.“Some people thought it was rootworm but in some cases in Ohio last year it was red root rot,” he said. “Kernels didn’t fill right because the plant died prematurely.”Runkle does not think red root rot will be a regular problem in Ohio due to the conditions it requires.“Hopefully we don’t see it again for a long time. It does stay in the soil, but you still have to have those other factors for it to be a problem. You have to have a lot of things line up to get this problem,” he said. “I don’t think it will be a regular problem in Ohio.”last_img read more
