Representatives from the various hospitals receiving the donationsThe Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC); Linden Hospital Complex (LHC); New Amsterdam Hospital and Suddie Hospital on Wednesday were the recipients of a $2 million donation, which will see the improvement of visual presentations to educate the public.The four hospitals were each presented with one 55-inch television, a DVD player, DVD recordings and wall mounts, which were donated by Dr Lorna Amsterdam. It was related that Dr Amsterdam has been donating equipment to a number of hospitals for just over a year.According to the representatives from the hospitals, the televisions will be placed in the waiting areas to educate patients on various health issues, while some would be placed in the ophthalmology department to bring awareness on the different optical conditions.The ceremony was attended by Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence, who noted in her remarks, “This is what we’re talking about, giving back to the community. They’re giving back in a very healthy way, because these instruments will be used to bring about awareness of various health issues and also to teach our patients some of the dos and don’ts in terms of keeping their bodies healthy and also keeping their families healthy.“It is all-encompassing with what the Ministry’s vision is; trying to ensure that we take health to the people and we want to express our sincere appreciation for these instruments,” she added.She also highlighted that the hospitals who are recipients of the equipment should value the contributions that were made and recognise that this addition would add value to the service which they are expected to provide to the public.The idea behind these contributions is to reach out to Guyanese and educate them on a disease that they may have or the guidelines that are necessary to prevent such diseases.
The East Bank of Demerara landscape is set to undergo a major transformation with the establishment of the United States (US) based Amazonia Mall, a state-of-the-art facility that will offer new experiences to locals and visitors.The project is currently under construction at Providence, EBD; a stone’s throw from the National Stadium. It is being spearheaded by one of Guyana’s most successful sportsmen, Ramnaresh Sarwan, and is expected to be completed in 2020.The 38-year-old former Guyana and West Indies cricketer turned entrepreneur said this is phase two of a project he started several years ago. Phase one included Massy Store, New Thriving Restaurant and Fitness53 Gym housed in oneAn artist’s impression of the Amazonia Mall in Guyanabuilding.“Construction (of phase two) started a few months ago, and we’re at the stage where we’ve completed the foundation and the flooring. In another four weeks or so, we will start seeing the erection of steel and so on. This has been long in planning, and I’m really happy that it is coming to fruition,” Sarwan explained.Caribbean Cinemas, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Burger King, Pizza Hut and Optique Vision Care are the businesses already aligned to the project.

I think, most importantly, you want people to experience the kind of shopping stuff they experience abroad and we’re going to try our best to bring that to everyone.”Persons wanting further information on investment opportunities at the new facility can call 265-7271, visit the website www.amazoniamallgy.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Johnny Groene threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Josh Jones in OT for the winning score. Keith Hamberg sealed the victory with an interception for the Panthers (2-0), who forced overtime with a 1-yard TD run by Nick Gramke with 35 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Independence’s Robbie Ward missed a 48-yard field goal in the final seconds of regulation that would have won it. “We never could stop them,” Coach Tom Knotts told The Charlotte Observer. “We had our best on their best, and they made big plays … I told our team it was coming, and I hated to say I told you so. “We have been living dangerously, this season and last. We opened the door for everybody. Now it’s over. We didn’t make plays or force turnovers.” Independence (1-1) had not lost since falling, 34-31, to Shelby Crest exactly seven years earlier, on Sept. 1, 2000, when this year’s team was in elementary school. PREP FOOTBALL: Charlotte, N.C., school falls, ending nation’s longest run. By The Associated Press CINCINNATI – The streak is over at Charlotte Independence – 109 wins and seven years after it began. Cincinnati Elder ended the nation’s longest football winning streak with a 41-34 overtime victory over the North Carolina high school Saturday night in the Kirk Herbstreit Challenge. During the run, the Patriots – who have been ranked No. 1 in The Associated Press state 4-A poll since the beginning of the 2001 season – became the first team to win seven straight state championships in North Carolina. Most of the wins weren’t close. Independence had beaten opponents during its win streak by an average of nearly 35 points per game entering the 2007 season. “It is going to be rough for a few days,” Knotts said. “Now we’ll go back to work on winning a state title.” The Patriots shattered the state record for consecutive wins, breaking the previous mark of 46 to open the 2003 season and earning their 100th straight win by beating East Mecklenburg in October. Independence took over the nation’s longest winning streak after Concord De La Salle’s loss in 2004 ended a 151-game winning streak.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A primary school has been ordered to compensate a Donegal teacher after the Equality Tribunal found she had been harassed on religious grounds and discriminated against because her son was gay.Resource teacher Bernadette Marron from Bundoran took the case against the board of management of St Paul’s, a Church of Ireland primary school in Collooney, Co Sligo.The 53-year-old teacher worked at the school for seven years. She claimed at a tribunal that the school principal made a series of critical comments about her son’s sexual orientation, saying a “normal boy” would not spend an afternoon shopping for clothes.She said the principal also raised her son’s speech and attire. She told the tribunal he said her son’s pink blazer was not appropriate and questioned what kind of mother Ms Marron was to have a son like that.Ms Marron said the principal – who denied the allegations – also made a series of comments which were critical or discriminatory towards Catholics.She said the principal criticised the behaviour of Catholics in church, commented on the negative effects of Catholics joining a local Church of Ireland secondary school and referred to Church of Ireland members as “our children” and the “right people”.Ms Marron, a non-practising Catholic, said she felt repeatedly undermined by the principal and complained to the school in September 2013. The issues, however, were not dealt with properly by the school, she said.The chair of the board of management, however, told the tribunal it responded to the allegations “as best they could”.The principal of St Paul’s denied Ms Marron’s allegations and expressed shock that they had been made.Regarding Ms Marron’s son’s speech, the principal said she herself had been upset by the boy’s comments about his classmates, which included her own daughter. The principal denied making any statement about the complainant’s son shopping for clothes.The principal said she was shocked to learn of the allegations and said she had never discriminated against ms Marron and had sought to include her at all events involving the school.In its finding, the Equality Tribunal found as fact that the principal made the derogatory comments attributed to her by Ms Marron.The tribunal found the principal’s use of the words “us” and “our” in relation to children and adults of different religions amounted to harassment.Comments on the sexual orientation of Ms Marron’s son and her parenting undermined her dignity at work and amounted to discrimination by association.Ms Marron told the tribunal she was looking for an acknowledgment that what had happened to her was wrong and sought no financial compensation.The tribunal, however, ordered the school to award her €3,000 on the basis that the case would attract a significant award of damages in the ordinary course of events.It also ordered that the school undertake equality training to cover discrimination and harassment.DONEGAL TEACHER WINS COMPENSATION OVER PRINCIPAL’S COMMENTS ABOUT HER GAY SON was last modified: January 6th, 2016 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:Bernadette MarronbundoranChurch of IrelandCommentsdonegalgay sonsligo

Top football News How Everton could look in January under Ancelotti with new signings “Villa are a big club that belongs in the Premier League and I’m here to help them achieve that,” said Abraham.“At this stage of my career, I need games and this is a great place for me to come and showcase my talent. I can’t wait to get started.”The signing of Abraham, 20, represents a significant coup for the Championship club as they target promotion back to the Premier League.He was a revelation during his last spell in the Championship, netting 23 times in 41 games for Bristol City in 2016/17.Abraham spent last season on loan at Swansea City, scoring five goals in 31 Premier League appearances, and was called into the senior England squad.He had been hoping to break into the Chelsea first team this season but is behind Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud in the pecking order.

Because in the last 10 days he has improved a lot. So I’m really very happy with him.“I think that he will be important for sure, starting from September we will play every few days. I think Loftus will be very, very important and very useful to us.”Asked why the midfielder has not featured more so far, Sarri said: “Because he has to improve, just in order to play my football.“He has great qualities, from the physical point of view, from the technical point of view. I think he needs to improve from the tactical point of view.”
