Dear Editor,I am responding to this view that is emanating from the President and those on his bandwagon that he remains President until the next President is sworn in. Is President Granger seeking to preach that he will be President for life? Because he and his Government have not demonstrated any seriousness as it relates to the holding of elections.Article 106 (6) and (7) says the following: a) the President and Cabinet shall resign upon the successful passage of a no-confidence vote. Their final day on the job is 90 days or three months after, in this case, March 21, 2019, since the no-confidence motion was passed on December 21, 2018. b) They remain in office purely for the purpose of holding an election. Article 106 (7) envisages an election in three months at which time the presidency shall be handed over to the newly-elected President. To be defeated by a no-confidence vote and not hold elections within the constitutionally mandated timeframe of three months and in bravado style declare to people of Guyana “I remain the President until the new President is sworn in” is pure nonsense. The President’s henchmen are perfectly correct when they say that the “President should remain in office until the next President is sworn in.” However, what they omit that subject to Article 106 (7) of the Constitution and in keeping with the ruling of the Chief Justice, elections had to be held before March 21, 2019, and a new President sworn in by that date or shortly thereafter. Their perverse logic seems to suggest that Granger can ignore the Constitution of Guyana, have or not have the election at his will and the people of Guyana must keep him as President. For example, the President can or not hold the election in 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 and we must accept him as President. We reject this.Editor, this Guyanese will publicly declare for the President and his merry band that I will not sit idly by and allow this abuse of power and I encourage all decent, sane, right thinking and independent Guyanese to reject this nonsense and to see this action of the President as a misuse of the trust that was given to him by the people of Guyana in May 2015. President Granger and his Government lost their mandate on December 21, 2018. Their only reason for continuing in office was to facilitate the holding of elections and the maintenance of good order.Bill Number 14 of 2000 Explanatory MemorandumClause 5 alters Article 106 to provide for the resignation of the Cabinet and the President following the defeat of the Government in the National Assembly on the vote of confidence. Although defeated, the Government shall remain in office for the purpose of holding an election.They have done everything to frustrate the holding of elections. We don’t have a date and we are six days away from the constitutionally mandated deadline.The only business that this President and his Ministers should be engaged in, is ensuring elections are held, it’s not business as usual. Any attempt to stay in power beyond March 21 can be deemed a reckless and irresponsible action by this Government. This claim that the doctrine of necessity kicks in can be deemed an absurdity and to date the most visible act of desperation. The Constitution never contemplated a defeated Government remaining in office beyond ninety days without a two-thirds majority of the National Assembly. That is to say, the opposition defeated you facilitating an extension beyond ninety days, because of some reasonable and rational ground. No such grounds exist; it is clear for all to see the intention of the APNU/AFC coalition Government was not to have elections by March 21. So whether it was the National Assembly, the courts or GECOM, they sought a refugee. GECOM with its unilaterally appointed Chairman and the three Government-sponsored commissioners have provided that much-needed smoke screen. We are not allowing this asinine behaviour from GECOM. For the purpose of all Guyanese, the Constitution envisages a GECOM on any of the three eventualities: a) a no-confidence vote b) the President at any time during the five-year term proclaiming a dissolution of the National Assembly on calling a national election and c) the end of the five-year cycle of the National Assembly. On every occasion, elections are to be held within three months. Stop the charade, the “mamaguying” and the bravado behaviour, call elections now. On March 22 you are illegal, unlawful and unconstitutional; you will no longer be the President, Mr Granger.Editor, while at it may I express my utter disgust at the misuse of State resources that funds the DPI which has now become the propaganda and political attack arm of this coalition Government. Further erosion of governmental institutions and a harsh return to party paramountcy is evident.Yours truly,Bishop Juan A Edghill
“The offer of 1,050,001,000 euros, is superior to the minimum requested in the invitation to tender,” Lega Serie A said in a statement, with MediaPro’s offer enough for them to beat traditional broadcast partners Sky and Mediaset.The annoucement comes after the Italian league rejected the offers made by Sky and Mediaset at the end of January, judging the total amount of 830 million euros to be insufficient.The two groups currently share the domestic television rights, paying 945 million euros per year for the period 2015 to 2018.Lega Serie A wanted at least 1.05 billion euros a year for the new deal, and MediaPro’s offer goes 1,000 euros over that mark.The international rights for Serie A were attributed in October to IMG and Rai, the Italian national public broadcaster, for a total of 371 million euros per year for the three years to 2021. That is double the previous amount.According to an advisor to the league, the offer from MediaPro, who already hold the rights to the Spanish league, could be linked to a project to create a new television channel in partnership with the league itself.The amount of the new offer compares to 1.16 billion euros a year in Germany, 1 billion euros in Spain and 726 million euros in France. However, it is way behind England’s annual total of 1.95 billion euros.Sky, however, reacted via a statement from their lawyers saying MediaPro’s offer was “inadmissible” and demanding that negotiations with the Spanish group be interrupted.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gonzalo Higuain and Federico Bernardeschi of Juventus, Serie A champions in the last six seasons © AFP/File / MARCO BERTORELLOROME, Italy, Feb 5 – The Italian league announced on Monday that the domestic television rights for Serie A games for the period 2018 to 2021 have been sold to Spanish group MediaPro for Sh132bn ($1.3bn) a year.MediaPro is the company that has been contracted by the Kenyan premier League to produce at least two matches per weekend though the financial details of this deal remain scanty.

France and Paris Saint-Germain wonderkid Kylian Mbappe. 1 He’s an outrageously talented teen who has thrilled all who watch him since bursting onto the scene with Monaco.Mbappe’s speed, skill, and ice-cool finishing are just some of the talents he’s shown in his three years as first-team footballer.He’s seen comparisons to Pele during the World Cup in Russia thanks to his brace against Argentina in the round of 16, although he was quick to distance himself from the claims.Mbappe said: “It’s flattering to be the second one after Pelé but let’s put things into context – Pele is in another category.”And as he gets set for the final, Dugout have taken a look at some of his best moments in brilliant fact file on him.

OAKLAND — I was going to write a big ol’ story about how the Warriors — despite having a roster full of big names, big games, and even bigger personalities — have managed to keep the waters around the team generally calm.I was trying to get to the bottom of how the passive aggressiveness and pettiness that has seemingly dominated this era of the NBA — the kind of nonsense that has hit the Rockets, Timberwolves, Wizards, and Lakers this season — has seemingly missed the Warriors, despite a ripe …
Very quick delivery from china. The ends of the scissors are blunt, so it would be very difficult to hurt yourself. Bought for my hairdresser as a token gift – love them. There cute but i thought they were clips not pins. The scissors are nice and look well made but they are more like. The scissors are nice and look well made but they are more like gold compared to the photo. Their size is nice not too big not too small but when i take them of my hair i do it very carefully so my hair don’t come of with the scissors. Overall for the price i’m satisfied i didn’t expect something else. Not as shown in the pic where they just look like scissors, the end of the hair grip still sticks out which is dissapointing. Nice strong grip so once in they stay in, pulls a few hairs out on removal but that’s normal for my hair. Build quality is good, feel very solid, not likely to fall apart etc. Over all for the money a good enough buy. Lovely hair slides, well made. Not a cheap item they feel nice and tight in, and they look great to. I’ve had so many complements when i wear these in my hair. The scissors are nice and look well made but they are more like cuhair(TM) 2pcs punk scissors metal desgin for girl hair clip Barrettes claw accessorieswe ship within 3 workdays,takes 10-30 workdays ,usually 15-25 workdays to europe
We recently reported that a watchdog site, Cryptome, was removed from the Web for refusing to take down a copy of a Microsoft document.This document, called the Microsoft Online Services Global Criminal Compliance Handbook, or “spy guide,” gives details on how law enforcement can grab user data from a wide range of Microsoft services, from Windows Live ID to Xbox Live to Hotmail. Microsoft holds and can reveal a huge amount of data on individuals through their social networking and file-sharing services, too. These data include IP addresses, credit cards, chat logs and much more.How does a large corporation balance end user privacy balance with the need to cooperate and comply with law enforcement? Read on to see how Microsoft handles this issue.On the SurfaceAfter a quick read-through of Microsoft’s guide, everything initially made sense. They’ve got a lot of data – IM logs that can help find missing kids, gaming records that can help return a stolen Xbox, emails that can help track down terrorists. There’s an emergency hotline for urgent or life-threatening incidents, “situations like kidnapping, murder threats, bomb threats, terrorism threats, etc.”The full list of services includes email, authentication (Windows Live ID), IM, social networking (Windows Live Spaces and MSN Groups), custom domains, online file storage and gaming (Xbox Live). For each service, data is accessible through a series of web interface that allow law enforcement to browse through relevant data in tables or forms.And there are procedures for accessing all this information, too. Law enforcement can’t simply ask for the information, according to the document. They have to have a subpoena, a court order or a warrant to gain access to data such as usernames, linked accounts and email address books.Digging DeeperBut after talking to a few sources who have worked in law enforcement (LE) and government agencies – none of whom wanted to be quoted, for obvious reasons – these procedures are a far cry from the day-to-day realities of data access.In other words, there’s a reason it’s called a “spy guide.”For one thing, federal and LE officers tend to have a much easier time getting access to user data than their corporate conspirators might let on, our sources told us. In ticking time bomb scenarios, this can be a good thing, as quick and unobstructed access to data can save people from imminent harm.Where Are All Those Warrants?However, we’ve been told by people who have handled such issues that government and LE often request and are given data without having to go through the proper procedures, often because of corporations’ fear of government retribution. For example, not too long ago, Sprint was revealed to have complied with 8 million LE requests for GPS data in 2009. This figure doesn’t include any other type of data from anyone other than LE for any network other than Sprint – this is just for LE GPS data requests from Sprint. The implications of this are staggering, but the most confounding of them all is that there could not possibly be enough warrants to justify the sum total of requests that digital companies are handed by law enforcement seeking user data. Our sources all confirmed that without question, LE and government officials are often given user data by companies such as Microsoft without having to provide any kind of justification – not legal documents, not proof of criminal activity and not evidence of guilt.What About the Fourth Amendment?And then, there are the less widely known reasons that LE or federal agencies would gain access to user data – programs such as government data mining or Project Carnivore (which is essentially the wiretapping scandal of the digital sphere). Again, our sources confirmed that LE’s desire to see user data is often the only reason a digital company would need to turn over information – warrantless wiretapping all over again.In conclusion, Microsoft’s spy guide does state that certain steps much be taken for law enforcement to access data – steps that require law enforcement to prove that their searches and seizures in the digital world are legally justifiable. Whether or not anecdotal evidence supports this claim we will leave to our readers to judge.What the document does show us, however, is the extraordinary breadth and depth of information that Microsoft has and is willing to give to government and law enforcement agencies. And that alone is enough to make us put on our tin foil hats.Note: We have contacted Microsoft’s Rapid Response media team with several questions and are awaiting a response.UPDATE: 9.30 a.m. PST, We have received a response from Microsoft. They claim the document’s purpose is to “respond to lawful requests from law enforcement agencies to provide information related to criminal investigations” and state that they “take our responsibility to protect our customers privacy very seriously.” Moreover, they have requested that Cryptome be restored.

ROME — Dries Mertens matched Diego Maradona with his 81st Serie A goal for Napoli and Carlo Ancelotti’s squad bounced back from a run of poor results for a 2-0 win at relegation-threatened Frosinone on Sunday.Mertens scored the opener with a perfectly executed free kick around Frosinone’s wall into the near top corner.Mertens and Maradona are tied for third on the club list of Serie A scorers behind 1930s star Antonio Vojak (102 goals) and recently departed captain Marek Hamsik (100).“The great thing about Mertens is that he always gives his all, even if he plays poorly,” Ancelotti said. “I really like his attitude. … He deserves to match Maradona.”Amin Younes doubled the lead after the break, dribbling by two defenders before sending an angled shot into the far corner.Napoli also hit the woodwork twice in only its second league win of its last five matches. The southern club was also recently eliminated from the Europa League quarterfinals by Arsenal.Napoli is firmly second, 18 points behind Italian champion Juventus and eight ahead of third-place Inter Milan with four rounds remaining.Frosinone is last but one.TweetPinShare0 Shares
