Voinjama Faces Sanitation Crisis

first_imgVoinjama, which hosts more than 11,000 inhabitants, is being threatened by a looming sanitation crisis.The city’s market area, especially the slaughter house and behind the Voinjama Free Pentecostal Church, has been overtaken by piles of garbage.Residents and business people in the affected areas of the city told the Daily Observer recently that the garbage has been untouched for the past three weeks.Citizens of Voinjama pointed out that in the absence of a sustained garbage collection system under the Voinjama City Corporation (VCC), the uncollected trash would continue to pile up and bring with it the threat of an outbreak of disease.Reacting to the claims of the residents, officials of the sanitation and environmental department of VCC said the entity lacks the critical logistics to respond to the sanitation crisis.Concerned health and environmental groups in Voinjama have expressed concern about what they see as a possible sanitation crisis threatening the densely populated city.Martin Sumo, a health worker, claimed that most of the cook shops being operated are doing so in unsanitary conditions and that the lawful intervention of relevant government agencies and institutions in Voinjama was urgently needed.Mr. Sumo pointed out that a majority of the prepared food handlers do not have the required dress code to meet the minimum standards of operating a cook shop.The environmental groups based in Voinjama underscored the urgent need for the local office of the Environmental Agency (EPA) to carry its campaign to the various garages in the interest of a clean environment.The group’s representatives claimed that dozens of makeshift garages situated at strategic locations in Voinjama pose a threat of environmental degradation.They explained that used oil from engines of vehicles and generators continues to be disposed of in the various swamps in the middle of the city.“On top of that, this used oil being dumped into the swamps threatens the marine resources and vitality of swamp crops such as rice, cabbage, and bitter-balls,” the group leaders said.Environmental activist Solomon Mulbah noted that private generator owners using their back yards to house their machines are creating air pollution.He called on the VCC’s leadership to embark on a sustained sensitization campaign among cook shops, restaurants, night clubs and video centers with sustainable mechanisms in place to protect Voinjama’s environment.Environmentalists and health workers have called on residents and business owners to observe better sanitation and hygiene practices to work with the VCC’s Environmental Department to clean the city and its surroundings.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The overlooked aspect of businesses in Guyana catering for families with children

first_imgDear Editor,Many corporate persons and business owners know the importance of being family-friendly, but it seems that they often don’t pay too much attention, thinking that families with children are a minority market that only those businesses specifically targeting that market needs to cater to. Such a shame since what they do not realise is that families with children make up a much larger market than most people believe!So many places in Guyana, whether it is a retail store, hardware store, shopping mall, restaurant, supermarket, entertainment or recreational facility, a service business or just a general business or company, ignore the needs of families with children and do so at their business’s peril.The presence of children who will be in tow on these trips, more so, during the August holidays, is overlooked and this adds up to a lot of young children power influence, whether they come and how often, how long they stay and how much they spend.Family-friendly encompasses a multitude of factors, especially when it comes to younger children focusing on children’s eating preferences (and those of what their parents would like them to eat), children’s short attention spans and easy boredom, to restrooms with changing tables, catering for parents with children in tow ranging from manoeuvering strollers through doors, between tables and through aisles, parents’ obsession with their children’s safety (both injury and abduction), to the cleanliness of everywhere parents take their children and everything that their children can touch or mouth.Being family-friendly means attention to a few details, most of which would be of little concern to most adults without children in tow but businesses are urged to please take a little extra effort in design, operations and staff training to really please the family with children market and make them loyal customers.When you get it right, when your business is truly family-friendly, you will win customers for life.Sincerely,Mommy Vlast_img read more

B4 Youth Theater to Host Shakespeare’s Globe Theater of London in “Hamlet”

first_imgAlways ready to do the next new thing, B4 Youth Theater, composed of Liberian music, dance, drama students and stage play performers, will be hosting Shakespeare’s Globe Theater of London’s Hamlet on March 7, 2016.The Shakespeare Globe Theater of London, a handful of travelling players, is known all over the world as the premiere classical theater performance group. It was begun by William Shakespeare in the 1500s. This is part of a two year tour that has reached more than 200 countries since 2014. Lasting only two-and-a-half hours and touring every country in the world over two years, a handful of travelling players will perform a raw, thrillingly elemental production of this inexhaustible play. If you miss this one, you will regret. Nothing like this has come to Liberia for long. These actors have been in almost every country and they are not thinking on that past Ebola business, and will be in Liberia. It is a world-class event which will help introduce and endear millions of people to Shakespeare, to classical literature and the performing arts in general, and notably to Hamlet. “All the people of Liberia should be there. The students should come to see Shakespeare, knowing about the Shakespeare play Hamlet is good for Liberia,” stated B4 Youth students partaking in the reading of Hamlet.Actors from London will be bringing the real dramaThere will be a pre-show performances beginning at 5:30pm before special guests from London perform Hamlet. Liberian singers, dancers, youth drama from B4 Youth Theater, Gbarnga troupe and Mt. Barclay troupe will perform. Also, there will be presentations from Montserrado StudentAssociation Hamlet Book Club participants and all kinds of enjoyment.Meanwhile, ticket purchases and any needed information can be collected at Evelyn’s Restaurant on Gibson in Sinkor or at the Afropolitan Boutique on Benson St.Many people have helped B4 Youth put this together. Board members in Liberia and the US, B4 Youth’s partners have been a big help. “We would like to thank these people and let everyone listening know that they can get more information from these people. We have Board Vice President Jebbeh Cole Fahnbulleh, Board Member Adolphus Scott, Board Member Tianna Kesselly, who are always representing and making things great for our students. Then we have our friends and partners Lester Parker, Marjean, our own Salamartu Duncan, Robena Vincent, Aurelius Butler who is on the US side but comes back to help, Rosana Schaack of THINK, Hawa Ellen Knuckles of Evelyn’s and so many others,” added Blanks Jones, the founder of B4 Youths. “Especially the US Embassy who sponsored the Hamlet book clubs for more than 100 students who will read the book and attend the show with gratis tickets. This effort was assisted largely by the Montserrado Student Association and Mohammed Dolley. Then we have other people who have taken the lead to make this great like ED Cole, Mercy Pour who is our Program Manager, our teachers in the book clubs and arts instructors such as Cynthia Gaye, Pauline Medeh and Lawrence ‘Awesome’ George.”For the meantime, B4 Youth is welcoming volunteers and sponsors. They hope for a sponsor that can help make student tickets available for a discount cost.“If you are listening and want to help, please call us for information on how to sponsor this program. As you can see, we like to thank our partners and sponsors publicly and there are many benefits associated with being part of this major event,” Janet added.B4 Youth cast educated citizens through the arts. As the premier theatre organization in Liberia today, this group has performed three times at Monrovia City Hall in which Madam President has attended all, conducted “pop-up” theatre for Ebola awareness reaching more than 300,000 Liberians to share education on prevention which was featured in the USA Today article with Orlando Bloom, American movie actor, and given performances in Gbarnga, Buchanan and many areas of Montserrado. Founded by Jasmine Blanks and supported by board members in Liberia and the US, this organization has made it possible for more than 400 Liberian children and youth ages 10-18 to have continuous, free access to music, dance and drama instruction and has been able to train six previous students as Arts Instructors who are leading programs throughout the various counties.The story is this one: Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, has not succeeded his father as King. On the throne is his uncle Claudius, who married Queen Gertrude immediately upon the death of her husband, the first King Hamlet. At midnight the ghost of the dead King appears to his son on the battlements of the castle and commands revenge. Hamlet, unsure at first, simulates madness and asks for a performance of a play with a plot much like his father’s murder, so that he can see how the King responds. Claudius, deeply alarmed, plans to send Hamlet to England. However, before Hamlet leaves, he kills Polonius (the father of Ophelia, the woman Hamlet loves) who is hiding behind a curtain in Gertrude’s room. Two messengers conduct Hamlet towards the voyage to England, bearing letters that order his death when he arrives. Ophelia’s brother Laertes, enraged by the news of his father’s death, finds that his sister is helplessly mad, and swears to kill Hamlet. Ophelia drowns herself, and Hamlet returns to Denmark in time for her burial. Later, at a fencing match where Laertes seeks to stab Hamlet with a poisoned rapier, both men are wounded. Queen Gertrude drinks, in error, the poisoned wine Claudius has prepared for Hamlet. Laertes and Gertrude die; Hamlet, after killing Claudius, collapses in the arms of his friend Horatio and dies. Learning of the king his father’s death, Hamlet comes home to find his uncle married to his mother and installed on the Danish throne. At night, the ghost of the old king demands that Hamlet avenge his ‘foul and most unnatural murder’. Encompassing political intrigue and man and woman business obsession, philosophical reflection and violent action, tragic depth and wild humor, Hamlet is Shakespeare’s ‘poem unlimited’, a colossus in the story of the English language and the fullest expression of Shakespeare’s genius.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

ANTI-AUSTERITY CAMPAIGNER HITS BACK AT SENATOR HARTE OVER SEPTIC TANK CHARGES

first_imgA LEADING campaigner against septic tank charges has hit out at Labour Senator Jimmy Harte over his stance on the issue – and claimed the Government has failed to ask for EU cash which is available to help those who might have to replace their entire systems.Ryan Stewart told donegaldaily.com that Senator Harte’s claims that he and others were scaremongers didn’t stand up.“The truth is that while certain people including groups like Donegal Action Against Austerity, and others around the country, are being labelled as scaremongerers, it is actually the government who have been scaremongering,” he claimed. “No fines will be filed against Ireland in the immediate future if the legislation is not passed. They have forced this legislation through with virtually no discussion, and now they are reeling in the face of resistance from rural Ireland.”And Inishowen man Stewart claimed: “No mention has been made, either, with respect to the possibility of using EU funding to pay for upgrading any deficient septic tanks. The money is there, why has this possibility not been addressed? If this funding was used, it wouldn’t cost rural taxpayers a cent to correct the problem.”He went on: “Why should people register, when the government is withholding crucial information about the actual ‘ruling’ or mincing on what financial supports will be available?”And in a personal message to Senator Harte, he said: “Jimmy, if you had any bottle, you would be standing up for your people instead of toeing the party line, and be asking these questions yourself to Phil Hogan.” Meanwhile Joseph Murphy, the Donegal man who drove to Dublin at 25mph, is planning a walk to the capital on March 14th and is hoping hundreds will join him on the march.WHAT THE SENATOR SAID: https://www.donegaldaily.com/2012/02/06/harte-says-slashing-of-septic-tank-fees-will-end-scaremongering/LEAVE YOUR COMMENT BELOW© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.
