Obviously the end was a bit of a struggle,” added Murray.“I almost found a way to get into the semis. I wasn’t that far away from doing that.”With the American hard-court season approaching and the US Open starting in just over six weeks’ time, Murray said he will seek out the best advice over his injury and schedule.Those discussions will start immediately and he admitted a break from the sport could be one solution to his problems.“I’ll get the best advice I can, then stick with that. If it means taking a few weeks’ rest, then so be it,” explained Murray.“If it means training and doing the right rehab and stuff, then I’ll do that.”Murray could lose his world number one ranking if Novak Djokovic goes on to claim a fourth Wimbledon title on Sunday.He admitted that losing top spot wouldn’t be a surprise as his form has fallen below his high standards this year.Murray was a shock fourth round loser at the Australian Open before an encouraging run to the last-four at Roland Garros.He has won just one title in 2017, in Dubai, and made one other final, losing to Djokovic in Qatar in January. 787 earthquakes recorded in 24 hours due to restive Taal Volcano Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite Marcosian mode: Duterte threatens to arrest water execs ‘one night’ “I’m sure moving forward I’ll be able to get through it (the hip problem).

So obviously wanted to try if possible to find a way at the end,” he said.Ironically, Murray, who was bidding to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals for the eighth time, could have wrapped up the quarter-final in straight sets.After cruising through the opening set he was a break up at 4-3 in the second before his afternoon dramatically unravelled, his movement and power seriously compromised.ADVERTISEMENT LIVE: Sinulog 2020 Grand Parade Murray had arrived at the All England Club feeling the effects of his right hip problem.The toll of playing five matches caught up with him as he limped to just his second loss in eight meetings with the giant American.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

Andrew Jlay, County Education Officer, Margibi County – Advertisement – Days after authorities of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) Monrovia National Office in Monrovia reportedly barred 10 of the 11th grade students of the Booker Washington Institute (BWI) from sitting the 2019 exam, documents obtained by the Daily Observer has linked Margibi County Education Officer (CEO), Andrew Jlay, to the alleged educational malpractices.A two-page letter entitled, “Concept Note on BWI’s Study/ Pilot on WASSCE with Junior Students,” reportedly prepared by the school’s administration, says that in 2017, they held internal discussions on the pilot project of the exam with the sophomore students, who would subsequently become seniors by 2018.To ensure the implementation of the study results, the concept note says, the school through its vice principal for instruction, was authorized to begin discussions with Mr. Jlay, who was in charge of WASSCE registration in the county.“That process led to Jlay requesting for the names of the selected 10 students that were on the pilot project,” the concept paper noted.It continues, “Mr. Jlay subsequently communicated that he had earlier spoken with the department of instructions at the Ministry of Education,” adding, hence, the ten competitive selected pilot students along with regular senior students were registered for the 2018, 2019 WASSCE exams.Jlay’s approval letter, dated April 26, 2019, addressed to BWI’s principal, Harris Fomba Tarnue, lauded the school for the concept note on the proposal for “your prospective graduates to attempt the WASCCE standardized test, while in their junior year.”His letter added, “BWI junior students are the equivalent of regular seniors in our secondary school system. By the end of the junior year, the students would have completed the required course material, warranting regular senior students eligible to sit the WASCCE, and also receive a diploma certifying secondary school completion.The letter continues, “With this criteria being met, I do not have any reservation for students, who have fulfilled such requirements to write the exams. Hence, the necessity of the pilot program is justified and legitimate because I approved it.”It added,” As a county school system, we exercise autonomy and inform the ministry for concurrence on issues as we deem necessary. Matters of this nature should be sanctioned by the school board. However, the board has being formed, and had not begun such deliberations.”Jlay’s communication further said, “I do not know the reason of the politics that you alluded to, however, I hoped this mail grants you any further clarity and foundation that you may need on the matter.”Also, responding to the issue, Education Minister Ansu Sonii in a communication to Mr. Tarnue, copy of which is with this newspaper, added, “As regarding the academic standing of 11th grade students enrolled at the BWI, it is not in the purview of the county school board or county education officer or individual school principals to unilaterally determine that students are eligible to sit for the 12th grade senior high certificate examination.”Such action, Sonii’s letter said, “requires a full justification to the board of governors of the institution, who upon a resolution to that effect, makes a case for the institution to the ministry for consideration.”The letter continues, “the assumption is that 11th grade students of BWI would have completed the full curriculum for the senior high division and are awaiting graduation, but for one year of vocational school work,” noting, “if any portion of the senior high school curriculum materials are covered in the fourth year alongside the vocational lessons, then the 11th grade students are not the equivalent of 12th grade students, and must cover their full curriculum, both academic and vocational.”Minister Sonii’s letter warned, “if it were true that you unilaterally approved and registered 11th grade students of BWI to sit for this year 2019 exams with no regard from members of the board, nor the ministry who has the authority to determine what level of students are eligible for the WASCE , than your action is inappropriate.”According to the BWI principal, prior to the recent past and for many years, WASSCE Certificate was not a requirement for admission of BWI graduates to college.Cognizant that WASSCE certification was required of BWI graduates to gain admission to college, Tarnue said there was a need to reform or re-engineer programs with a strategic view to improve students’ performance on WASSCE and was critical to the overall academic evaluation of the BWI.He said this was when the administration initiated the internal discussions in 2017 to conduct study/pilot of writing WASSCE on what he termed a ‘6-3-3’ curricula to validate and inform proposals for policy reform to provide for BWI students writing WASSCE at the end of their junior year.Principal Tarnue maintained that the concept was designed on several basis that include job training/ internship that sometimes takes half of the school year for junior students during their four years and that had usually interrupted adequate preparation for WASSCE.“The past experience and effect of this led the current 2018/2019 WASSCE candidates or seniors to write asking administration to allow them forego trade shop training to focus only on preparation for WSSCE,” Tarnue said. He further said that by the end of the 3rd junior year at BWI, students would have covered almost all required high school work before going for internship/job training.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Pharmagen International Inc has denied giving permission to the International Pharmaceutical Agency (IPA) to import narcotic drugs on its behalf.Pharmagen told Guyana Times that it has held and maintained the licence to import narcotics in Guyana for the last 26 years.“We are fully stocked and have the ability to supply any quantity that is required by Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) or any other licensed customer,” the company explained.Pharmagen noted that it has built a reputation as a reliable and ethical supplier to hospitals, doctors and pharmacies, and has earned the privilege of being allowed to uphold and maintain its licence with the Government Analyst-Food and Drug Department (GA-FDD) to import narcotics in Guyana.“Under no circumstance was IPA given the permission to import under a Pharmagen International licence. Further, we have no intention of giving permission to IPA or any other distributor to import under our established licence,” the company said.IPA insiders had told Guyana Times that the company was not registered to import those categories of drugs and was, therefore, denied a licence by the Food and Drug Department on that basis.This newspaper understands that an overseas supplier that is registered to market its products in Guyana had sourced IPA to sell the narcotic drugs locally through a market authorisation certificate.However, IPA was denied the licence to import the narcotic drug nonetheless.Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence has revealed that in 2016 and 2017, several firms were awarded contracts to supply pharmaceuticals to the health sector but failed to deliver. This resulted in shortages that led to her authorising an “emergency’ contract for $650 million to ANSA McAL.IPA was one of those companies that failed to supply all of the drugs it was awarded because it was not qualified to import some specialised pharmaceuticals.In January 2016, IPA, which is owned by Alliance For Change (AFC) funder Lloyd Singh, was awarded two contracts to supply the Georgetown Public Hospital with pharmaceuticals and medical supplies. On one of the contracts for $36.5 million, the company only delivered 80 per cent of the pharmaceuticals, because it was not qualified to supply the remainder.The remaining 20 per cent consisted of narcotics, including morphine, which required special certification for importation.After being denied the licence, IPA had to inform the authorities of its inability to supply the remainder of the drugs and settle the difference, which amounted to some $5.5 million. This was an object lesson as to why the prequalification of suppliers based on objective criteria established by the World Health Organisation-World Bank had been established by the previous Administration. This was jettisoned by the A Partnership for National Unity/AFC coalition Government.Minister Lawrence has complained of practices where contracts were being awarded to suppliers unable to supply the drugs, thus resulting in drug shortage crises across the country.During the budget debate in February 2016, Dr Karen Cummings, the Government’s point-person on health, alluded to the cancellation of the prequalification-based contract with the NEW GPC in October 2015, and said, “Mr Speaker, open, competitive bidding is on the horizon… This APNU/AFC Government will ensure that it does not water the hard-earned taxpayers’ dollars on enriching the pockets of the undeserving.”The Public Health Ministry claimed to have received support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to develop a new standard for “an open, competitive bidding system”. A bidding document to this effect has been approved by the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board, following which a pre-bid meeting with all potential bidders was held on December 16, 2015. However, the $700 million which was allocated the following January appeared to have been given to selected suppliers, who did not deliver and who the Minister refuses to identify.Both Lawrence and her predecessor, Dr George Norton, had admitted that the shortage of drugs across the country was as a result of the changes implemented by Government to the drug procurement system.“Some of these pharmaceuticals were overdue by as much as six months, which exacerbated the drug shortage at the hospital. These are the same suppliers who, before May 2015, were given the opportunity under the Granger Administration to become suppliers of pharmaceuticals to the public healthcare sector,” she said.But the prequalification system which was scrapped by this Government had guaranteed that reputable contractors were supplying the nation’s health sector with the requisite quantity and quality of drugs. When the prequalification system was in place, the health sector was not prone to constant shortages of drugs, which put the lives of patients at risk.
Nearly two months after the High Court ordered that ex-Wales sugar workers be paid severance with interest; union representatives had to take legal action again to ensure that workers who took up employment at Uitvlugt received their one month’s pay benefit.This came via the determination of Justice Sandil Kissoon who has ordered the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) to pay retrenched Wales cane cutters who worked at Uitvlugt Estate following the closure of Wales Estate at the end of 2016.These workers were meant to be paid one month’s pay in lieu of notice as of November 30, 2018, with the Court further ordering that they be paid four per centThe defunct Wales Estateinterest per annum up to December 5, 2018.According to the representative body, the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU), the January 21, 2019, order states to GuySuCo: “If you fail to comply with the terms of this order, you will be held in contempt of court and may be liable to imprisonment or to have your assets confiscated”.Though the unemployed workers have received their benefits; those who went to Uitvlugt received severance payments, but did not benefit from the one month’s payout, GAWU noted.The workers, along with their union have been saying all along that under the Termination of Employment and Severance Pay Act (TESPA); they could not be compelled to travel 22 miles from their point of origin to the Uitvlugt Estate.“It was dismaying notwithstanding the clear and unambiguous section of TESPA, the state-owned GuySuCo refused bluntly to respect the workers’ rights. For us it was disconcerting that the corporation took on such an adamant position, going as far as issuing covert and overt threats to the concerned workers, though it was clearly on the wrong side of the law,” GAWU noted in a statement issued Tuesday.Under TESPA, the employer is obligated to sever the workers when it was unable to provide similar work within a 10-mile radius. GAWU is left wondering if GuySuCo’s previous stance not to pay workers was shaped by the authorities giving guidance and instructions. GAWU is hoping for good judgment to prevail.In early November 2018, the National Assembly gave approval for almost $2.5 billion to cater for the remaining severance to 4723 sugar workers.The High Court had ruled in 2018 that all workers severed by GuySuCo must be paid with interest ranging from four to six per cent. Wales Estate was shut down in December 2016 while Enmore, Rose Hall and Skeldon were closed in 2017.People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) presidential candidate Irfaan Ali has promised supporters that his Party will re-open the closed sugar estates should the PPP/C be elected to office.

DD HEALTH WATCH: BOWEL CANCER AWARENESS MONTHBowel cancer, also known as colon, rectal or colorectal cancer, can occur in both men and women.Almost 2,500 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer in Ireland every year. It is also the second most common cause of cancer death in Ireland. If bowel cancer is found early, it can be successfully treated, so therefore early detection is your best protection. Symptoms of bowel cancer can include changes in bowel movements, pain or discomfort in your stomach, unexplained weight loss and more. While other conditions can cause these symptoms, it’s important to be aware.The symptoms of bowel cancer can include any of the following:Blood in your bowel motion or bleeding from the back passageA lasting change (more than a month) in your normal bowel motion, such as diarrhoea or constipationFeeling that you have not emptied your bowel fully after a motionPain or discomfort in your abdomen (tummy) or back passageTrapped wind or fullness in your tummyWeight loss for no reasonOngoing general tiredness or weaknessIt is important to remember that all these symptoms can also be due to complaints other than bowel cancer.However, if you have any of these symptoms it is important that you have them checked by your GP.There are steps you can take to reduce your risk of bowel cancer: Have a healthy diet. Limit the amount of red and processed meat that you eat.Avoid being overweight or obese and maintain a healthy body weight.Increase the amount of fibre you eat, including at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables each dayBe physically active for at least 30 minutes every day.Don’t smoke. Limit the amount of alcohol you drink.Be aware of your family history. If a member of your family has or had bowel cancer speak to your doctor about the risk and the need for screening.Can I be screened for bowel cancer?BowelScreen, the new national bowel screening programme, will send people in the 60 to 69 year old age group a letter asking them to take part in the bowel screening programme.This process has already begun but may take up to three years. Men and women who are called for screening and who are willing to take part in the screening programme are sent a home test kit called FIT (Faecal Immunochemical Test) in the post. This test is carried out by the person in their own home. The easy to use test kit will include step-by-step instructions for completing the test and sending samples by Freepost to the laboratory where it will be tested for the presence of blood.The test results are expected to be normal for more than 9 in 10 people and these people will be invited for routine screening again in two years.About 5 in 100 people will receive an abnormal result and will need an additional test. They will be referred to the hospital for a screening colonoscopy to determine any abnormality in the bowel.Over time the programme will be expanded until the full 55 to 74 age group is reached. To develop the capacity to cater for the full 55 to 74 age group, the programme will be implemented on a phased basis, starting with men and women aged 60 to 69.In the meantime if you have any concerns or symptoms at any time please see your GP.For further information contact Freephone Information Line 1800 4545 55.

Brian Ssentongo with 14 was the other one to reach double digits in terms of points for the Nsambya based side, adding a game high 8 rebounds to his game.City Oilers who seat second on the log have now won all of their last six game in the FUBA NBL and pile more pressure on leaders Power.For Our Saviour, they remain third from bottom with a 6-8 record after 14 games.Both sides will return to action on July 28th with the victors taking on Sharing Youth before Our Saviour plays UPDF Tomahawks, at YMCA.Results from the weekend games:Saturday, 21-07-2018:Ladies:Angels 47-65 A1 ChallengeJavon Ladies 44-57 UCU Lady CanonsMagic Stomers 53-73 Nkumba Lady MarinesMen:Charging Rhino 52-64 UCU CanonsKIU Titans 76-56 KCCA PanthersUPDF Tomahawks 52-57 JKL DolphinsSunday, 22-07-2018Ladies:Magic Stomers 63-67 KCCA LeopardsUMU Ravens 43-78 KIU RangersMen:Sharing Youth 69-80 KIU TitansUCU Canons 68-60 KCCA PanthersNdejje Angels 72-56 Charging RhinoOur Saviour Vs City Oilers (Postponed)Comments

Arcata High boys basketball’s shocking 54-49 road win in Crescent City over Del Norte last Friday did two things: It crowned the Fortuna Huskies as outright Big 5 Conference champions and set up a final week of Big 5 play in which Arcata, Del Norte, McKinleyville and Eureka all still have shots at finishing second or third in conference and qualifying for the end-of-season Niclai Tournament.In a couple weeks Arcata might look back on its 2018-19 season and remember its improbable win over Del …
