ECF Airport belongs to the people of Guyana

Posted in tnljfllg on January 18th, 2020

first_imgDear Editor,Just for the public record, I do not have any conflict with Kit Nascimento, neither at a personal nor at a professional level.  I therefore find his words quite sharp and riveting for a man who is supposedly just doing his professional work as a PR consultant for the Correia family.I however, do Agree with Kit, Mike Correia is a is one of the ” Finest CEOs ” that is why I had personally agree to support his appointment as the chairman of the private company’s OAI board. It is important to note that the EFC Airport Board of directors was never established.What is unfortunate is that I also thought I could have  trusted him to run the affairs of our company OAI while I was busy  over the years struggling to build and transform Roraima Airways which was a newly startup Company.I in fact was too trusting of him which I now know  was  a massive mistakeWhen I finally discovered and understand what Mike was doing it was too late. He had already outsmarted us by cleverly maneuvering his family and friends into the shareholding of our company , OAI  , with the clear objective of taking over our company and cleverly dominating the day to day operations of the airport , thereby creating the most unhealthy and acrimoniously anti-competitive environment I have ever witness in my 40 years as a professional aviator.I wish to acknowledge that I was not as smart  as mike Correia nor was I as alert as I should have been. He is probable a  better business man than I am , since I lack the basic killer instinct to be shrewd and ruthless.Kit went on to cast assertions that  my own achievements was accomplished by political patronage while the development of ogle was clear of such political favors.  Well, I would not even dignify kit Nascimento’s slanderous assertions with a reply but only to say the following1. Once again it leaves me to question his professional conduct.2. I wish to make it very clear that kit Nassimento was not around the five original investors at the time we were conceptualizing the development strategy for OAI. He therefore is in no position to comment on the lack of”political Patronage” as a contribution to the development of ogle airport.3. I do not expect him  to know the details and the behind the Scenes work that was done.4. I do not expect him to know that the five of us was given the exclusive  privilege of leasing the ogle airport , not because of the Correia’s family Wealth , but because of the diversity of who each of us was individually and what we represented as competitors giving the Government the comfort  and assurance that the airport would be operated in a fair and equitable manner, where all of us would have equal say maintaining the balance since we were also fierce competitors.5. Unfortunately what has evolved and what in fact is obtained today is far removed from the what the expectation was when the airport was leased to us.6. The European Union tax Government injected 2 million USD in the airport development not for the benefit of one Operator but because they too felt it was for the benefit of Guyana.As I close this letter, which I hope is the final letter I would need to write on this subject , let me simply established the following facts.1. EFC Airport is a Government of Guyana facility which is leased to a private company called OAI with strict expectations on the part of Government.2. OAI was meant to operate the airport in a fair and equitable manner by appointing a management team that was professionally competent and  very importantly  , totally impartial.3. The fact that 9 of the 10 local aircraft operators at the airport has expressed unequivocally their lack of confidence in the management of the airport to be fair and impartial speaks for it self.4. Airports  by their very nature are regulatory, therefore, It a totally unacceptable situation to have one competitor regulating his competitors.The business of a country’s international airport is not like any regular company , airports must be managed by impartial managers. The quantum of Shareholding should never give one operator more rights over the other operators who are their competitors.Aviation related Investors must be assured of the security of their investment but they cannot be allow to run the day to day operations of the airport because of the clear conflict of interest and disadvantage to the other airport  aviation operators.OAI as a private company that no longer has the moral standing of impartiality to continue with the privilege of managing a public asset  (EFC International Airport) in the public interest in an equitable  and fair manner. ECF Airport belongs to the people of Guyana and we must never forget that fact. Our Government need to establish a national airport authority under which the management of our country’s international airports must operate.Sincerely,Captain Gerry GouveiaCEO, RoraimaAirwayslast_img read more

Carlisle 0-2 Derby: Rams in Capital One Cup second round after seeing off League Two challengers

Posted in tnljfllg on January 6th, 2020

first_img1 Derby County beat League Two outfit Carlisle United 2-0 to book their place in the second round of the Capital One Cup.It’s the second win of the season for Steve McClaren’s Championship side, who beat second tier newcomers Rotherham in their opening game of the 2014/15 season on Saturday.Derby dominated proceedings but it took an hour to open the scoring against the Cumbrians, Republic of Ireland midfielder Jeff Hendrick nodding the visitors in front from close range.That was after the Championship favourites survived a scare from the plucky hosts, as Rams goalkeeper Lee Grant was forced to push David Symington’s free kick on to the crossbar.McClaren’s men were good value for their lead, though, and it came as no surprise when they sealed their progression with a late second, forward Johnny Russell crossing for Chris Martin who converted with a neat volley in stoppage-time.

Character does count

Posted in tnljfllg on January 6th, 2020

first_imgThe only trouble with Antonio is he fathered two children out of wedlock; he cheated on his wife more than once; he is immoral, unethical and has a lack of character. Other than that, he is a great guy. He wants us to ignore his personal life because he says it is his private business. There is a saying: “Look at what a man has done to see what he will do.” Character does count, even if Antonio thinks it doesn’t matter. — Norma Kennedy West Hills Journalistic objectivity According to the Daily News poll, the majority of voters feel that Mirthala Salinas should be fired. Apparently the voters feel her employer should punish her for her sin as “the other woman” of a married celebrity (which is all her paramour is, by the way). But how about this scenario: Remember the journalistic photographer by the name of Linda Eastman? She was assigned to Paul McCartney. Should she have been fired? Was there lost journalistic objectivity? Actually, how much objectivity is there to begin with when celebrities are celebrated? I would kind of like to find out what Mirthala’s employer thinks. — Kathryn Durfee Agoura Unreliable hormones On occasion I still hear men offering the “female-trouble” argument against women in positions of leadership; for a few days every month, we are unreliable because of our hormones. The exploits of our wayward mayor confirm what women have always known: that men are unreliable every day because of their hormones. At least now we know why he’s always smiling. — Sylvia Alloway Granada Hills Problems at the top Re “Verdict windfall” (Your Opinions, July 4): Carla Henry says that “it’s time a law is introduced with a ceiling of $10,000 on discrimination lawsuits.” That’s not the problem. The perpetrators are the problems. Unbiased juries keep finding that Los Angeles Fire Department employees are being discriminated against by supervisors – $11 million and counting since April. The mayor brought in a new fire chief, but the “problems” at the top are still in power. In the case of Capt. Frank Lima, awarded $3.6 million by a jury, one perpetrator was appointed in April as litigation risk manager – a position responsible for reducing lawsuits and large payouts. Until the “problems” are eliminated, the taxpayers will continue to pay. — Chris and Eric Mattson (LAFD retired) Fallbrook Rosie redux Re “Recognizing Rosie” (Your Opinions, July 6): So, according to William West, my observations regarding Rosie O’Donnell’s half-baked behavior on “The View” and her subsequent self-aggrandizement as Bob Barker’s possible replacement “arguably constitute libel per se.” Last time I checked, my letter commenting on the behavior of a publicly recognized personality appeared in the “Your Opinions” section of the Daily News. If I’m guilty of libel, then I guess O’Donnell is equally guilty of slander for the baseless accusations she made regarding President Bush, the U.S. government, Christians and members of our armed forces during her blissfully shortened tenure on national television. — Dink O’Neal Burbank Culture of life “Live Earth” entertained millions across the globe. Isn’t it interesting that our culture and our media overwhelmingly embrace a cause that “may” affect our planet in the future. How many political figures and rock stars would entertain at a concert to educate about the global effects of the genocide of millions of children before birth by their own mothers? Let’s not let the “politically correct” message of “Live Earth” distract us from the gravely destructive global effects of abortion on our planet. “Live Earth” should only be celebrated within the context of a culture of life. — Joe and Carla Kazimir Granada Hills Futility I am neither a military strategist nor a rocket scientist, but I don’t think it takes either one to recognize the futility of what our administration in Washington is trying to achieve in Iraq with its “surge.” Pour more troops into Baghdad, and the fanatics simply blow up themselves and innocent victims in the surrounding territories. I mean, how dumb can we be? And how many lives will be lost before Washington recognizes that the quagmire of Iraq can only be settled by Iraqis making peace with each other, not by outsiders with guns? — Alan Pollack Woodland Hills Law and logic Re “Fastpokes” (Your Opinions, July 8): Gregory Todd gives us his lesson in driving. I’ve only been driving in California for 50 years now. There is case law in California stating it is well established that when you’re in the No. 1 lane of a three-plus-lane highway, and there is faster traffic – regardless of its speed, behind you, you are required to yield. It’s a matter of conditions and the flow of traffic. Try this one out. Use some logic. If you are in the No. 1 lane and the traffic in front of you is pulling away. The traffic behind you is being backed up. The traffic on your right (No. 2 lane) is passing you. You’re in the wrong lane, pal. Move over. What problem do you have with that? Possibly you’re the one who has no business on our roadways. — John Arason Mission Hills And now? The Fourth of July hoopla has passed. My question to the critters who used the American flag as an advertising gimmick: What will you do next? (I think that practice is totally reprehensible.) Will you, or anyone else, pick up the flags that were deposited at my home? (There were two this time, since one fell on the ground and I picked it up; it got replaced in a matter of days.) I was a Girl Scout leader and taught the protocol of respect for the flag. I have several flags from years past, and they are simply accumulating here. Will the people who used this tactic come to my home and ask for their past “deposits” and pick up the present ones so they can be honorably disposed of? — Margy Lee Northridge Flag patch guidelines Re “You got it backwards” (Your Opinions, July 8): Regardless of the writer’s like or dislike of the current administration, they are doing it right. According to, military guidelines state that in a multinational operation, the “reverse” flag shall be worn on the right sleeve one-quarter inch below the shoulder seam or one-eighth inch below any required unit patch. — Steve Murphy Palmdale Always forward Re “You got it backwards” (Your Opinions, July 8): I read in “your opinions” a few days ago that a gentleman in the Valley was upset because the U.S. flag patch on the uniforms of our troops in Iraq were “backward.” This was explained three or four years ago. The flags are attached in that manner to show that our troops are always moving forward. I hope this explanation helps. — Ray P. Keesler La Crescenta Down a toxic hole Belmont High School’s original cost was $60 million for an old, toxic oil field whose price ballooned to $400 million. Remember that when greedy politicians hit us up for the next worthy cause – for the police stations it won’t build or a $400 million high school. Remember to just say no – because no matter how worthy the cause, our leaders will misspend the money with no accountability, no one fired and no one in jail, just precious tax dollars poured down some toxic hole in the ground. — John Kurt Reseda 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Securing the Mobile POS in Retail

Posted in tnljfllg on December 9th, 2019

first_imgEmbrace secure retail.  Embrace mobile point-of-sale:As we are all aware this October the standards for securing retail transactions will shift to EMV in the US. The standard will define a new era in credit card purchases by making them more secure.  With the rollout of any new standard there are bound to be opportunities for suppliers to seize the moment and deliver innovation.  The new Panasonic FZ-R1 mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) 7” tablet includes EMV reader for securing payments. The advantages of the FZ-R1 stems not only from its ability to be used in-hand or in-cradle for the countertop, to its rugged design, the encryption magnetic stripe reader and the Near Field Communication (NFC) payments acceptance for Google Wallet and Apple Pay.  In my opinion that is innovation.  Anytime a company can make its products easier for adoption it gives them an advantage.  With the transition to EMV, the liability shifts from credit card companies to retailers.As a consumer, we desire to have a smooth shopping experience.  The winners will be those retailers that can offer the most seamless experience from sofa-to-store front.  As a result Retailers are re-evaluating their mPOS platforms.  In most cases technology that is thoroughly integrated, based on industry standards and offer a clear upgrade path typically win out. ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌last_img read more

Maran: ‘When you’ve got Nainggolan…’

Posted in tnljfllg on November 30th, 2019

first_imgRolando Maran concedes “it’s an advantage to have a player like” Radja Nainggolan, after Cagliari beat SPAL 2-0 with his stunner. The Sardinians started badly with two straight defeats, but are now unbeaten in six and surged past Roma into fifth place. “The first two rounds were difficult, but we worked hard and I tip my hat to all the lads who put our training into practice,” the Coach told DAZN. “We must continue like this, trying to improve, but also maintaining a balance between defence and attack. We need to stay in the game to the last minute, the last centimetre, and these lads have it in their DNA.” The deadlock was broken by a spectacular Nainggolan chest and volley into the far top corner. “It’s an advantage to have a player like this in the squad, as he can do that. He has extraordinary technique and you feel his influence throughout the match.” Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.
