SANTA ANITA PARK STATEMENT REGARDING ARMS RUNNER FOLLOWING TODAY’S SAN SIMEON STAKES

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (March 31, 2019)–“Arms Runner sustained a fatal injury during the San Simeon Stakes today. He was racing over the 6 ½ furlong hillside turf course this afternoon when at the dirt crossing, when he fell and collided with another horse, La Sardane.  La Sardane, was walked back to her barn under her own power with no reported injuries.  Both jockeys, Martin Pedroza, who rode Arms Runner and Ruben Fuentes, who rode La Sardane, were examined by on-site medical experts and released from First Aid. This is a gut-wrenching blow to everyone in racing, but our thoughts are with the connections of Arms Runner.  The horse was trained by Peter Miller at San Luis Rey for Rockingham Ranch.  The five-year-old gelding had won his last race on Jan. 27th over the same downhill turf course.While this incident happened during competition on a track that has been deemed by independent experts to be safe – it speaks to the larger issue of doing all that we can to better understand and prevent such catastrophic injuries, not only at Santa Anita , but throughout California and across the country.  International Federation of Horseracing Authorities standards were unanimously adopted by the California Horse Racing Board on Thursday.  We urge other racing venues in California to adopt the IFHA standards immediately. Together we can create higher standards and protocols across the board at all California racing and training venues. Last Thursday, Santa Anita together with the California Horse Racing Board CHRB, announced ground breaking reforms within our sport.  They include:Completely overhauling the Medication Policy:Strict limitations on the use of any pain or anti-inflammatory medication and treatment, including legal therapeutic NSAIDS, joint injections, shockwave therapy, and anabolic steroids.A reduction of race-day use of the diuretic Furosemide (Lasix) to a maximum of 50% of the current level.A complete phasing out of all race-day medication (including Lasix) starting with the foal crop of 2018.Ensuring Veterinary Oversight & Enhancing Safety Protocols: No therapeutic medications or treatments will be allowed without a qualified veterinary diagnosis from a state licensed veterinarian. Use of the riding crop is now subject to the strictest rules at any major jurisdiction in the world.  This is already in place for training and will be enacted during racing following normal regulation procedure. Complete transparency of all veterinary records.Significant and strict out-of-competition testing.Trainers must apply for permission to work a horse (a timed, high-speed training exercise) at least 48 hours in advance.Horses are now required to be on-site for an increased length of time prior to a race. A substantial investment by The Stronach Group in diagnostic equipment to aid in the early detection of pre-existing conditions.”last_img read more

LBDI Looks Forward to 2015

first_imgAt this time in 2013, the total assets position of the Liberian Bank for Development and Investment was at about US$159 million. But the Bank’s assets have grown to over US$220 million, or 38 percent in 2014, thanks to the strong and rigorous risk management regulation put in place by the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) and the sound management by the Board of Directors and staff of the Bank.Despite the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak in Liberia, which brought about off-budget expenses on the Bank, Management has declared how it was able to leverage strong liquidity, even though profitability, to a larger extent, was foregone in many cases for liquidity due to the high risks factors.  This is a mammoth task for a banking institution that has huge overhead obligation to maintain over 15 branches and manage hundreds of employees and contractors. In December, 2013, the Bank’s equity position stood at US$12.5 million.But equity has grown by more than 115 per cent, from US$12.5 million in 2013 to US$27 million in 2014.“This strong position shows that LBDI continues to maintain its market share despite the Ebola crisis,” said LBDI president and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr. John B. S. Davies, III at the bank’s 49th Anniversary held recently in Monrovia.Mr. Davies commended the entire Bank’s staff, particularly, 14 employees who were honored and certificated for their dedication and long service for the Bank.Mr. Davies along with eight other LBDI staffers, including Mr. William Jackson, Olivia Davies, Kou Giddings, Eugene McClain, Fatu Effiong, Onike Bedell, Reginald Goll and Aaron Kollie. Three staff, including Madam Doretha Yarsiah, Frances Williams and Mr. Akwenah Nyeamene was also honored for ten and fifteen years respectively, given  their services with LBDI.The longest service award was given to the LBDI vice president for Buchanan Branch, Mr. Clarence W. Bai, who has served the Bank for 25 years. The 20 years of service award was awarded to Mr. Samuel Gborzoe. The LBDI CEO has commended the honorees and the entire staffers of the Bank for their dedication and commitment in working towards the growth and development of LBDI.A former Comptroller General of Liberia, Mr. Davies noted the strong liquidity position of LBDI and attributed the gain directly to the leadership and professional roles of all of the employees. “We at LBDI are blessed with employees of great quality,” said Mr. Davies.He encouraged the employees to keep up the excellent performance, assuring them of a better LBDI during the post-Ebola crisis. He also thanked the Bank’s customers to maintain their trust in LBDI.Speaking on behalf of the honorees, LBDI’s longest serving honoree and vice president for Buchanan Branch, Mr. Clarence W. Bai, thanked the Management for the recognition and pledged the honorees’ commitment to remaining dedicated to the bank and serving the Liberian people through LBDI.“I must be very frank…serving a bank like LBDI for 25 years is not easy,” said Mr. Bai as he commended the Management for celebrating the 49th Anniversary of LBDI.Mr. Bai used the occasion to appeal to the Management to conduct regular training for all employees, including the vice presidents for all branches. Mr. Bai also called for salary increment for employees, noting that it would further motivate employees to go the extra mile in serving and protecting the bank.Earlier, LBDI Board Chair and Minister of Finance and Development Planning Amara M. Konneh congratulated the Management and staff of LBDI for strongly holding the bank together during this Ebola crisis.Chairman Konneh wondered how the economy would have been without the strong liquidity position of LBDI, praising it for its ethical style of banking. “I would have been in hell fire had LBDI not been so strong and this Bank is strong because of you—the staff and the Management including our committed customers,” said Mr. Konneh.LBDI is predominantly a privately owned institution under private management and a Board of Directors elected annually by its Shareholders.  The Bank commenced operations in 1965 as Liberian Bank for Industrial Development and Investment.  Under an amendment in 1974, the name was changed to the Liberian Bank for Development & Investment (LBDI).  A further amendment in 1988 allowed the Bank to engage in commercial banking activities, to compliment its development objectives.The Bank was actually created by an Act of the National Legislature in 1961 under the joint initiative of the Liberian government and major international financial institutions that purchased equity, namely: International Financial Corporation (IFC), Commonwealth Development Corporation (CDC) Capital Partners, European Investment Bank (EIB), Groupe Agence Franicais de Development (GAFD), and Deutsche Investitions-und Entwicklungesllchaft (DEG). Over 150 private Liberians and other international and local institutions have equity in the Bank. Foreign shareholding is 44.47% and local shareholding is 55.53%.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Open Letter To The Chairman of AU – Africa Is Descending Into A Dangerous…

first_imgApril 20, 2015His Excellency Robert Gabriel MugabeAssembly ChairmanAfrican UnionAddis AbabaEthiopiaDear Chairman Mugabe:I am mournfully penning down these few words with deep sympathy and empathy overshadowing my entire being for our fellow African brothers and sisters who are undergoing cruel persecution simply because they are not South Africans. My heart is beset by series of atrocious scenes emanating from cities across South Africa as inhumane hostility against peaceful immigrants and foreign nationals intensifies. The dawn of brutality and bloodletting pervading every echelon of South Africa today is a complete contradiction to Pan-Africanism and an irony to African Unity.The most pathetic and deadliest incident of recent in Africa is the unending xenophobic campaign in South Africa. Mr. Chairman, the African Union must act fast to find a permanent resolution to this dilemma in order to avert potential insecurity and instability in the region. I foresee a continental crisis if genuine steps or measures are not taken to arrest the petrifying wave of violence and intolerance in South Africa. The continent is descending into a dangerous pit of disintegration, discrimination, vandalism, and gangsterism. No one needs to tell me that Africa is slipping slowing into an irreversible quagmire of bewilderment and terror. The gloomy atmosphere in South Africa speaks volumes. Sometimes, I wonder whether Africans will ever rise above the surging semblance of extreme hatred and malice. African Solidarity goes beyond words! We cannot claim to be brothers and sisters from the same continent when a certain group of nationals (South Africans) are orchestrating a ruthless crusade of cruelty and atrocity.Mr. Chairman, Africa is currently sitting on a time-bomb and only waiting to explode. If a comprehensive remedy is not derived speedily by the African Union and all its member States, including global partners, Africa will forever remain a continent of anarchy. The time to redeem Africa from unending carnage is now and we must do all we can to prevent potential risk of insecurity, instability, intolerance, and indiscipline. The debate for a new Africa does not begin with xenophobia; neither does it end with hostility. I am really panicking and pondering over what is happening in South Africa. The rights of immigrants and foreign nationals are violated daily through a sinister scheme of intolerance. Why must South Africans brutally murder other Africans? Foreign nationals are not and can never be responsible for unemployment or joblessness in South Africa. Is this the South Africa we knew few years ago especially during the lifetime of Nelson Mandela? It is too soon for South Africans to forget their past as a nation?History is meant to re-examine our present by using our past as a mirror. Mr. Chairman, when vast majority of South Africans were compelled to succumb to a cruel system of racial segregation enforced through legislation by a brutal regime from 1948 to 1994, the entire Africa stood up and championed a common cause to ensure black inhabitants were unchained from repression and isolation. Sadly, the spirit of pan-Africanism is wearing away day after day. The solidarity of Africans worldwide is dissipating.Mr. Chairman, in as much racism was condemned yesterday; xenophobia must also be condemned today. If imperialism was a bad precedence yesterday, intolerance is also a bad precedence today. Mr. Chairman, We cannot afford to live on a continent where South Africans are cutting off the necks of Nigerians. We cannot live in an Africa where South Africans are burning Zimbabwean immigrants to death. This is totally unacceptable and unfair!Mr. Chairman, we cannot cultivate a new Africa of mutuality and brotherhood when the properties of foreigners in South Africa are being vandalized and looted by muggers and assailants. It is totally evil for Malawians and Mozambiqueans to be harassed and persecuted by Zulu men even though they are neighbors. The greatest form of injustice in human history is for a Zulu King, Goodwill Zwelithini to instruct all foreigners to pack their bags and go home because they are taking jobs from his citizens.South Africa as a member State of the African Union must do all it can to provide maximum protection and safety for all African immigrants. Mr. Chairman, South Africans are presently violating articles 3, 5, 7, 13, and 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Right to life is a moral principle based on the belief that a human being has the right to live and, in particular, should not be unjustly killed by another human being. Mr. Chairman, it is time for the African Union to prevail on the government of South Africa to uphold these fundamental provisions within the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.Article 3: Everyone has the right to life, liberty, and security personArticle 5: No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishmentArticle 7: All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.Article 13: Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state. Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.Article 14: Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution.Mr. Chairman, the bloodshed in South Africa has to stop. This can only happen if the African Union intervenes promptly. Africa must unite by defeating XENOPHOBIA and defending Pan-Africanism. Unity in Africa is crucial to ensuring a prosperous continent.In addendum, I would like to recommend the following:Justice for all direct victims (perpetrators of these heinous crimes must be prosecuted)Reparation for families affectedHosting of anti-xenophobic conferences in all African States on a bi-annual basisMr. Chairman, I am confident that your able leadership will put an end to the gloomy atmosphere existing momentarily in South Africa. Yours sincerely,Martin K.

Why Is Our Fisheries Sector Too Weak? Ay! What’s Wrong With Us?

first_imgWhy is almost every sector in Liberia weak—the most critical being the Education sector, which President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf herself has confessed “is in a mess”? There is also our road network. Quite recently the highway leading to the southeast was cut in half, imperiling travel to a major sub-region of the country leading to La Cote d’Ivoire. One wonders whether Public Works knows about the huge ditch at the intersection of the Paynesville and GSA Roads, which is close to being cut in half; and that motorists and pedestrians, mostly marketers and customers at the Red Light Market, have to wade through several inches of water and mud before reaching Coca Cola Factory. There is also the power crisis—the country is still not covered with electricity, but thankfully the rehabilitation of the Mount Coffee Hydro is on stream; but the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) complains of power theft everywhere, undermining its limited capacity. With all our rivers throughout the country, what has kept us from developing more mini-hydro stations?There is also the problem with water and sanitation, areas in which there is much is to be desired.Now, closer to the fisheries problem is the agricultural crisis—we are still importing fruits and vegetables from neighboring countries; and most of the meat we eat—beef, despite the many places around the country which are natural habitats for cattle; and poultry, which is so easily grown anywhere in Liberia and; of course, the big one, rice, which most of our rural farmers know how to grow but need assistance. We spend over US$200 annually importing rice.Why, after all these years, we are still unable to be self-sufficient in our staple food?And now to fisheries! Here again, we have ignored or misused the wonderful blessings the good Lord has given us—all these rivers and streams throughout the country, most of which grow fish; then the great Atlantic Ocean, where we can find anything from massively-sized Cuta, Cassava Fish, Cat Fish Cavala, Grouper (which we call “Grapor”), Pike and Snapper to the tiny Barpleh. The Atlantic also richly endows us with shell fish, including huge crabs and lobsters! What more do we need?But many of our neighbors, including little Gambia, have modern fishing depots in many places. Yet today, we who should have led the way in modern fisheries are far behind. Why has it taken us so long? Why did Vice President Joseph N. Boakai have to tell the world last Wednesday, at the launch of the World Bank-funded Mesurado Industrial Fishery Terminal, that the Liberian fisheries sector suffered “weak enforcement of fishery regulations and the lack of a functional fisheries monitoring surveillance and control system”? A surveillance control system is absolutely necessary, because the lack of it causes Liberia to lose millions of dollars each year in fish stolen from our waters.This is certainly not because we did not have the experience. We all remember a company called Mesurado, the fishing giant run by Steve Tolbert’s Mesurado Group of Companies. It was the first company to supply fish to many parts of the interior, transported in refrigerated trucks.Mesurado also shipped shrimps to many parts of the world, especially Japan. Mr. Tolbert had scores of women dressed in white gowns, boots and headgear, on their feet several hours daily, cleaning shrimps for export.But the 1980 coup changed all that, and from that point Mesurado went downhill. There were many other reasons for this, not just the coup.Since the 1980s only a few Liberians have entered the fishing business. Soon it, too, in addition to all the other commercial activities, became to domain of Lebanese merchants. A few years ago the Dakar, Senegal-based West African Regional Fisheries Program (WARFP) decided to undertake and support a project in Liberia. The aim was to build several fishery depots, equipped with freezers, in decent places where people could purchase fish and other sea products. But up until now the first depot, being constructed in Grand Cape Mount County, is still incomplete.This is clearly due to the lack of focus and oversight by the Ministry of Agriculture, which is closely linked to the project.Now the World Bank has pumped in a US$7 million grant to build a fishery terminal at the Free Port of Monrovia. We hope and pray that the Cape Mount project will be expeditiously completed, in order to serve as an impetus to the success of this new venture at the Free Port.The whys being asked in this Editorial about the lack of progress in Liberian fisheries are due primarily to three problems: first, our lack of focus; second, the lackadaisical attitude of many of the people in government; and third, selfishness—people putting themselves before the projects, seeking to know what they can get out of it for themselves. The new Agriculture Minister, Dr. Moses Zinnah, we are sure, realizes that this World Bank-funded project is the first foreign-funded one under his watch. We urge him to watch it very closely and ensure that it is completed within the year, and that all the promises it brings will be fulfilled. We hope also that the new Minister can push the Cape Mount project to completion within the next three months and hasten the successful completion of the Free Port project.

Heavy-duty trucks still operating haphazardly on Linden highway – Councillor

first_imgThough numerous consultations have been hosted, on the heels of safety concerns regarding defaulting heavy-duty trucks utilising the Linden-Soesdyke Highway and internal roads in Linden, the issue continues to be one of concern for Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) officials.At the last statutory meeting of the Regional Democratic Council (RDC), Councillor Douglas Gittens highlighted several re-occurring issues he has observed, as he pleaded with the Council to take another look at the situation. Gittens said heavy-duty trucks are still not adhering to safety rules, as he also made calls for enhanced road markings along the highway. The Councillor said he gets “emotional” every time he speaks on this issue, since he is a regular traveller on the highway.“I’m saying to us, we have to do something about these trucks that are on the highway. They are still moving with these big logs and they are not protected enough…there are no lights on any of the sides and numerous things… Some of these trucks got a big beam on the front. When they shining that on the highway, you can’t see anything… When they stop across the road, they put a tree branch to show you that there is where the truck is…I am begging, we have to do something about these trucks,” Gittens reiterated to officials of the Council.He added that while work is ongoing to secure funding for the upgrade of the highway, in the interim the Council should request that the Public Infrastructure Ministry apply road markings to it.Gittens pointed out that some of the log-carrying trucks, which utilise the Mackenzie-Wismar Bridge continue to appear to be severely overweight. In this regard he urged that the bridge’s scale be fixed and put back in operation.“…they’re coming across that bridge too heavy. With other vehicles behind them and in front of them…We have to get that weight at the bridge fixed”, Gittens urged. He also questioned how and if vehicular fitness is being issued for these vehicles, as he pointed out that some of the issues can be corrected by Police.After Gittens raised the concerns, Councillor Denise Belgrave stood up to support him. Regional Chairman Renis Morian promised to raise the issue at the region’s security meeting. He also reminded the Council that several high-level meetings were held regarding the same issue. Last June, officials met and discussed recommendations and measures of enforcement for heavy-duty trucks in an effort to curb road fatalities and the destruction of roads within the region and along the Linden-Soesdyke Highway.The regional administration had also made a decision to clamp down on defaulting timber and lumber trucks utilising the MacKenzie-Wismar Bridge and internal roads in the Linden community, following concerns that some were not operating under standard regulations.With Linden being a major link to interior locations, scores of these trucks pass through the community daily.last_img read more

GuySuCo begins to lay off Rose Hall Estate workers

first_img…“bleak Christmas” in sight – ChandThe Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) has started laying off workers from the Rose Hall Estate, Berbice despite Government’s announcement that the facility would no longer be closed at the end of this year.GAWU President Komal ChandRose Hall Field Supervisor Ramnarine Subramanian’s letter indicates December 29 is his last day as a GuySuCo employeeIn a letter seen by Guyana Times on Wednesday, GuySuCo discontinued the services of Rose Hall Field Supervisor Ramnarine Subramanian, under the Junior Staff Redundancy Notification.The letter dated November 26, 2017 stated that a meeting was held at the Rose Hall Estate Community Centre on November 22, in the presence of his union, the National Association of Agricultural, Commercial and Industrial Employees (NAACIE). It was observed in the document therein that the Corporation had no vacant post to alternatively retain Subramanian’s services.“The Corporation has given consideration to the option of you continuing in another job within (the) organisation. However, there is no suitable vacancy to accommodate you,” the letter seen by this publication stated.Moreover, it was stated that the notice would expire on December 29, 2017 which will be his last day with the Rose Hall Estate and GuySuCo, and it was further observed that the termination was in keeping with the Termination of Employment and Severance Pay Act 1997 (TESPA).Meanwhile, Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) President Komal Chand related that many East Demerara (Enmore) Estate and Rose Hall Estate workers have already been terminated, and some of them have received their severance packages. He, however, said that payments to the majority of workers were still outstanding and expressed hope that the situation would not end up like Wales Estate’s case where after almost one year, workers are still to be paid termination benefits.“Some have got their severance pay, but the bulk is yet to get their severance pay and they are hoping there will be no hitch like in the case of Wales,” he told this newspaper on Wednesday.Chand added that GuySuCo’s redundancy measures have come as a departure to what Government, through Agriculture Minister Noel Holder, had officially told the National Assembly earlier this year regarding the future of the sugar industry.“They said in their State paper, December 31 but they stopped planting canes the first part of this year and then they began to find some other jobs,” he pointed out.The veteran trade unionist further contended that many workers would spend their holidays in uncertainty and their early removal would hinder their overall plans for yearend.“For them (sugar workers), it will be a bleak Christmas because they would not be working and they are not too certain when they will all get their severance pay,” Chand pointed out.In May 2017, that Government announced plans to close the Enmore and Rose Hall Sugar Estates, sell the Skeldon Sugar Factory, reduce the annual production of sugar, and take on the responsibility of managing the drainage and irrigation services offered by GuySuCo. Several protest actions followed this announcement.last_img read more

Fiery Alli vows to keep cool at World Cup

first_imgAlli has been involved in a series of incidents when his temper has got the better of him.Some pundits fear Alli could suffer the same fate as David Beckham, who was infamously sent off in the 1998 World Cup after being provoked by Argentina’s Diego Simeone.But the 22-year-old, who claims he has never seen footage of Beckham’s red card, expects to keep a lid on his tantrums in Russia, where England face Tunisia, Panama and Belgium in the group stage.“I am a big believer that you have to make mistakes to learn from them,” Alli said.“And, yeah, I feel I learned from the things I’ve done before, but it’s not something I worry about at all.“I haven’t seen the incident with Beckham but, you know, I feel I’ve got everything under control. That is not going to be a problem.“Obviously, I’ve done some things before and people seem to think that will be a problem but it’s not.”Meanwhile, England manager Gareth Southgate is keeping his cards close to his chest as speculation continues over the identity of his World Cup goalkeeper.Southgate gave Everton’s Jordan Pickford his third cap in Saturday’s 2-1 friendly win over Nigeria at Wembley.But Stoke’s Jack Butland and Burnley’s Nick Pope are also in contention.With England’s last World Cup warm-up set for Thursday against Costa Rica, Southgate is keeping his stoppers guessing.“We’ll give consideration to who plays in goal against Costa Rica over the next 24 or 36 hours,” he said.“But I was really pleased with what Jordan did. Normally, when you play for England, there’s not an awful lot of opportunity to produce a lot of saves.“His decision making on crosses, the punch he made, his distribution and calmness to slide passes into midfield.“That was really important to the way we want to play. He can be very pleased with his performance.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000England’s midfielder Dele Alli has promised not to lose his temper at the World Cup © AFP / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Jun 3 – Fiery England star Dele Alli has promised to keep his cool at the World Cup.Alli has been targeted by opponents keen to provoke the volatile Tottenham midfielder.last_img read more
