Foreign Affairs Ministry probing possible “cyber-attack”

first_imgGuyana’s map without EssequiboIn light of two instances on social media where the map of Guyana was depicted without its Essequibo region, the Foreign Affairs Ministry on Monday expressed “deep concern” and asserted that it was “looking into the matter”. The first instance of this image surfacing was on the Facebook page of the American Home and Beauty Centre – a local company – on May 24, 2018, as the business wished Guyanese a “Happy Independence Day” while advertising a “Sale”.Foreign Affairs Minister Carl GreenidgeHowever, an ‘Essequibo-less map’ popped up on the website of the State-owned newspaper, the Guyana Chronicle on Independence morning. After the images went viral, the two entities posted apologies. The newspaper’s principal editor said that the matter was being investigated.However, on Monday, the Foreign Affairs Ministry said that the shape of Guyana’s 83,000 square miles is unmistakable.“From the dawn of our independence to this day, we have spared no effort to preserve our sovereignty and territorial integrity. This act which occurred on our 52nd Anniversary of Independence should serve as a sobering reminder that the threats to our territory remain real and dangerous,” the Ministry said in a statement issued.The Foreign Affairs Ministry also said that it has not ruled out the strong possibility that these instances were a cyber-attack, and was looking into the matter.Border controversyIn March, Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge filed the border controversy case at the International Court of Justice at the Hague asking the World Court to confirm the legal validity and binding effect of the 1899 Arbitral Award.The court document notes that while Venezuela has never produced any evidence to justify its belated repudiation of the 1899 Award, the neighbouring country has used it as an excuse to occupy territory awarded to Guyana in 1899, to inhibit Guyana’s economic development, and to violate Guyana’s sovereignty and sovereign rights. In filing the application, Minister Greenidge, who will serve as Guyana’s agent in the proceedings before the ICJ, had said: “… Guyana has respected the Secretary General’s decision and placed its faith in the International Court of Justice to resolve the controversy in accordance with its Statue and jurisprudence, based on the fundamental principles of international law, including the sanctity of treaties, the maintenance of settled boundaries and respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of States”.Venezuela had only changed its position formally in 1962 as the United Kingdom was making final preparations for British Guiana’s independence when the Spanish-speaking republic had threatened not to recognise the new State. Venezuela renewed its Essequibo claims after United States oil giant ExxonMobil had announced a major oil find off Guyana’s Stabroek Block in May 2015.last_img read more

Sign of the times

first_imgEveryone who wants the LAUSD reformed should be cheering for Granada Hills Charter School to go all the way in the Academic Decathlon competition at the state and national levels.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! While the vast district administration is strangling creativity and energy in most traditional schools, the charters are blossoming in their innovation, growing the next generation of L.A.’s scholars. Nor are LAUSD officials likely to see this as a reason to embrace real reform rather than resist it. Surely they will write this off as an aberration rather than a natural outgrowth of forcing students and parents who seek academic excellence to opt out of traditional schools and into private schools if they can afford them, charter schools if they cannot. It doesn’t have to be this way. Charter schools are popular because the district’s administration has become so bloated and self-serving that it has lost sight of its main mission of educating kids. From all appearances, it seems mainly concerned with self-propagation by building mega-schools whether or not they continue to make sense. Charter schools empower parents, students and teachers in smaller facilities and provide greater accountability and opportunity. And when they fail they have to change or they disappear. Perpetuation of failure has no place in the charter-school movement. LAUSD school officials are sure not to see the larger significance in the fact that the district’s Academic Decathlon champion this year is not one of the usual Woodland Hills campuses. On Tuesday, the brainiacs at Granada Hills Charter School were named district champs. Fortunately, it’s clear enough to everyone else that Granada Hills’ academic ascension is a sign of the times for the Los Angeles Unified School District’s medieval bureaucracy. That a charter school – one that was created despite enormous bureaucratic opposition – bested the district’s reigning national champions at Taft High School says more about the LAUSD’s educational future than even all the mayor’s education-reform stump speeches. last_img read more

Guardiola hits backs at Solskjaer’s ‘tactical’ fouling jibe

first_imgBut City boss Guardiola did not take kindly to that analysis and appeared to accuse Solskjaer of trying to influence referee Andre Marriner, who will take charge of the derby.“That’s the reason why, of course,” said Guardiola when asked if he was concerned Solskjaer’s comments might be intended to influence the referee.“I know exactly what I said to my players from day one to the last day.“So when a player wants to attack, we have to be honest and, of course, there is contact, there are fouls.“But when it happens and you arrive late, that is why there are referees — to make yellow cards or red cards or whatever they decide, but never have I prepared a game (to do it).“I prepare the game to do our own game, that is what I want, knowing of course the opponent, but I never said I’m going to do that to punish them or cancel them, making fouls. Never.”Solskjaer is not the first United manager to make a similar claim about City in the Guardiola era — his predecessor Jose Mourinho having made an identical observation before a derby meeting last season.But the bare statistics tend not to support Solskjaer’s claims as figures show United have collected 64 yellow cards this season, compared with City’s 38, with four reds for United, in contrast to their rivals’ solitary dismissal.– ‘Ask him again’ –In terms of fouls, United have committed 201, considerably more than City’s 172, and Guardiola’s outraged reaction appeared to support such a reading of the situation.“I never prepare a game in 10 seasons as a manager thinking about these kind of things. Never,” he said.“The players can talk about it better than me about that — the players I had at Barcelona, Bayern Munich and here — one of the targets is about the counter attacks for the opponents making fouls, never have I said to one player to make fouls to avoid something.“Football sometimes you do that, because football, the actions is quick, fast.“But I’m concerned about many other things to beat them than these kind of things so I don’t know.“Maybe tomorrow in the press conference after the game you can ask him again about that.”Guardiola, however, is wary of the threat posed by United to City’s Premier League title ambitions.City are two points behind leaders Liverpool and the Manchester derby represents their vital game in hand.The Spaniard knows United’s under-performing stars could suddenly hit form as Solskjaer’s team battle to finish in the top four after a disappointing recent run.But the fact that Guardiola likened such a potential upset to Burnley’s achievement in drawing at Chelsea on Monday spoke of the extent to which United have ceased to be a viable challenger to City’s superiority.“Well the tension is there, it’s necessary to complete these kind of games,” he said.“I think everyone knows what we are playing for, we have to focus on the target and what we have to do.“For me, United remains an incredible team, of course, the last 20 or 25 years always there. The past three or four, that can happen in terms of a long history.“For one specific game, they would be dangerous. I know in the beginning how strong they’ll be in terms of intensity and we’ll have to handle it.”0Shares0000(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Pep Guardiola has taken issue with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s criticism of Manchester City’s tactics © AFP/File / Lindsey PARNABYMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Apr 24 – Pep Guardiola has slammed suggestions from Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that Manchester City are guilty of “tactical” fouling in an attempt to stop rivals from counter-attacking.Solskjaer, talking before the crucial Manchester derby between the sides at Old Trafford on Wednesday, made reference to City’s supposed habit of fouling high up the field to stop opponents hitting them on the break if Guardiola’s players are out of position.last_img read more

While Chelsea sign Pedro and City sign Otamendi, here’s who Arsenal could sign this summer

first_img 5 Arsenal’s summer spending has stalled since they completed the signing of Petr Cech from Chelsea at the start of July. The Gunners have struggled to make inroads in their attempts to sign a striker, while their title rivals have all splashed the cash in recent weeks and the club’s fans are desperate for at least one more big name before the transfer window slams shut. Arsenal have been linked with a number of forwards this summer, while a move for a defensive midfielder has also been mooted. talkSPORT takes a look at the players who may join the north Londoners before the window closes on September 1.Who do you think Arsene Wenger should try to sign before the transfer window closes?

Robert Lewandowski: Arsenal fans will be drooling if the club can land the Bayern Munich star – According to the Mail, Arsenal have explored the possibility of making a £50m bid for the Pole, although it is understood Bayern immediately rebuffed an approach from the Gunners. 2.

Click the arrow above to see other big names Arsenal could sign – According to Daily Mail, Ibrahimovic has been told he can leave PSG this summer and Arsenal could bring the striker to the Premier League for the first time. 4.

Click the arrow above to see other big names Arsenal could sign – Arsenal made a £22m bid for Krychowiak earlier this month, according to the Telegraph. However, their plans to land the Polish midfielder have been scuppered after he suffered a rib injury in the Super Cup clash with Barcelona. Arsene Wenger is still monitoring Krychowiak’s situation and could return with an improved offer if he recovers before September 1. last_img read more

Freudian slip?

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.But we tease. Obviously, Weiss knows the Valley is part of L.A. – he has an office here, and he’s been known to come around once in a great while. Yet perhaps unwittingly, he has demonstrated an attitude that’s all too familiar in City Hall, one that’s only concerned with the part of L.A. that runs from the Westside to downtown. A slip of the tongue, to be sure – but a revealing one. IN discussing the city’s plan to create a reversible lane through the Mulholland Tunnel on Sepulveda Boulevard, Los Angeles City Councilman Jack Weiss made this telling remark: “When you’re leaving the city and going to the Valley during rush hour, it makes no sense to require drivers to go from two lanes to one lane” (emphasis added). Um, someone might want to inform the councilman that the Valley is part of “the city” of Los Angeles. Of course, he really should know that already. For six years, Weiss has represented a district that includes parts of the Valley – Encino, Sherman Oaks and Valley Village, in particular. He might want to look those places up on a map. They’re even in the Los Angeles Thomas Guide. You’d also think Weiss – who desperately wants to be city attorney – would have figured out that the Valley was part of L.A. back in 2002, when he publicly opposed the Valley’s failed effort at independence. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
