Govt, Church must become partners to address social ills – Minister Harmon

first_imgMinister of State, Joseph Harmon on Sunday evening sounded a call for the Church and other faith-based organisations to partner with the Government to address social ills, noting that the two entities share common goals and a vision of a good life for citizens.Minister of State, Joseph Harmon speaking at the Restoration and Life Ministries (RLM) special service held in observance of the church’s 11th anniversary on Sunday eveningThe Minister of State was at the time addressing the congregation of the Restoration and Life Ministries (RLM) in South Ruimveldt at a special service held in observance of the church’s 11th anniversary, which was held under the theme, “Striving for Perfection.”He noted that the Government and the Church must work together to build social cohesion, moral rearmament, human dignity, and equal opportunity for all Guyanese. This, he said, therefore makes the Government and faith-based organisations natural partners in the fight against racial and ethnic division, discrimination, poverty, crime, and all other social ills that plague society.“Like your church, the Government strive every day to improve its approach to policy-making and implementation. This is never easily achieved. However, it is important that we keep trying. Our efforts are certainly made easier with the input of faith-based organisations such as yours. The Government is cognisant of the fact that this church serves the community and provides spiritual succour and important relief for the members and community. I am inspired by the leadership and the work of the church,” he said.Referencing President David Granger’s speech at the Solomon’s Temple in Berbice in August 2017, Minister Harmon said that the Church must play a greater role in fostering social cohesion and national unity.He, therefore, called for a concerted effort to be undertaken even as the country prepared for the new oil and gas industry, which he said would bring even more spiritual and technical challenges.Meanwhile, Founder and Senior Pastor of the RLM, Wade Ridley said that the church “had small beginnings”, but has now grown to provide spiritual guidance and community service to hundreds.last_img read more

Referee Moss admits Spurs penalty question mistake

first_imgKane was clearly in an offside position when the ball was passed to him but Reds defender Dejan Lovren inadvertently played him on by getting a faint touch when he tried to hack it clear.After Kane was brought down, Moss then spent several moments discussing with his linesman Eddie Smart whether the Tottenham striker was offside.In their exchange, picked up by a pitch-side microphone, Smart is heard twice asking if Lovren touched the ball, as that would be a “deliberate action” and make Kane onside when he actually received the pass.Moss twice tells Smart he does not know if Lovren touched it or not and is heard asking fourth official Martin Atkinson, via his headset, if he “got anything from TV”, only to almost immediately say “I’m giving the penalty” and point to the spot.This prompted many observers at the game to wonder if this decision was effectively awarded by video review despite the Premier League not yet using the system.That, however, has now been denied by the Professional Game Match Officials Ltd (PGMO), the body set up to provide, represent and train officials when they went professional in 2001.Referee Johnathan Moss incensed Liverpool players with his two penalty awards © AFP/File / PAUL ELLISIn a statement, a PGMO spokesman explained Moss was in a “good position” to see that a Liverpool player had touched the ball before it reached Kane but “given the speed of the attack” was uncertain of who it was.The spokesman said Smart saw Kane was offside so “correctly sought clarification” on whether Lovren had touched it.“His question created some momentary confusion when Eddie asked if ‘Lovren’ had touched the ball,” the spokesman said. “Moss knew a Liverpool player had touched the ball but not that it was Lovren.“He then asked a question to his fourth official Martin Atkinson and acknowledges that referencing ‘TV’ was misguided. Atkinson did not reply to the question and so had no involvement in the decision.“Having properly reflected on the questions asked, Jon knew a Liverpool player, now identified as Lovren, had played the ball and that no offside offence had occurred. He then awarded the penalty.“For the avoidance of doubt, Atkinson did not view a television monitor and did not relay any information to the on-field officials.”Kane missed the penalty but converted another controversially awarded spot-kick in stoppage-time to give Spurs a 2-2 draw.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Referee Johnathan Moss and linesman Eddie Smart cause confusion over penalty decision © AFP / PAUL ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 5 – Referee Jon Moss has admitted he was misguided to ask the fourth official if he had seen a crucial penalty decision in Sunday’s Premier League clash between Liverpool and Tottenham.Moss gave Tottenham a late penalty at Anfield for a foul on Harry Kane by the home side’s goalkeeper Lorius Karius.last_img read more

THIEVES USED SHEEP DOG TO ROUND UP STOLEN LAMBS

first_imgSheep rustlers used a specialist sheep dog to round up and steal more than 70 lambs from two farms.The thefts of the lambs from farms in the Bridgend area has caused outrage among the farming community in the north-west.The 73 lambs are worth more than €7,500 and belonged to two young farmers starting out their careers. Malcolm Thompson, chairman of the Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers Association, told the Shaun Doherty Show on Highland Radio that he is outraged by the thefts.He said those responsible are not amateur thieves but they knew exactly what they were doing to round up and steal the lambs.“They know exactly what they are at and have access to documents and tags to be able to sell on these lambs,” he said.Dog excrement from the dog used to round up the lambs was found in the fields from which they were taken. A large truck would also have had to be used to round up the lambs for removal.Mr Thompson said pictures of anybody caught with the sheep should be displayed in marts to shame those responsible.“These people may not be farmers but they are certainly on the fringe of the sheep industry.“They known exactly what they are at in rounding up the sheep and they will know how to move the sheep on.“They are parasites and they should be shunned by the entire farming community. “Their pictures should be hung up at marts with the words “I am a parasite.” That’s how strongly I feel about these people,” he said.A reward of €3,000 has been offered for information leading to the recovery of the lambs.Buncrana Town Councillor Rena Donaghey, whose nephew was one of the farmers who has lambs stolen, said the thieves timed the robberies well.“The robberies took place on Thursday night or Friday morning last which was the time of Ireland’s football game against Spain. “There would have been very little traffic on the road and a number of roads were blocked because of the upcoming Donegal rally.“I have no doubt there was local knowledge used to steal these lambs. The people whose farms were robbed have been unable to sleep since with worry,” she said.Gardai are investigating the thefts.THIEVES USED SHEEP DOG TO ROUND UP STOLEN LAMBS was last modified: June 18th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:bridgendmartssheepthieveslast_img read more
