Linden commercial business vehicles to pay biennial cost

first_imgReturn of Kara Kara toll boothVehicles carrying commercial goods attached to businesses registered in Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) may have to pay an agreed biennial cost to the municipality of the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) when the Kara Kara toll booth at Mackenzie becomes operational again. This was discussed during deliberations at an extraordinary meeting of the Council which was recently held.The extraordinary meeting that was recently heldWhile a cost has not yet been set, a majority of Councillors at the meeting voted in favour of the decision to have the necessary vehicles, such as those carrying lumber, pay twice a year at a reduced cost.Linden Mayor Carwyn Holland indicated that a cost is expected to be arrived at following consultations with the Linden Chamber of Industry Commerce and Development (LCICD) and businesses within the community. Some categories of vehicles subjected to toll are timber trucks, haulers with machinery, trailers with logs and vehicles with goods for sale, among others.Another aspect which was discussed by the Council recently was the penalties for assaulting a toll collector which carries a $10,000 fine or an alternative of three months in prison.The Kara Kara toll booth had been the centre of controversy in the past due to the Council’s by-laws which were govern it, not being in force. A move to have it up and running again by the previous Council, after years, resulted in its abrupt closure by the previous Government in 2013. However, recently, the present Council succeeded in having the toll booth gazetted, with a claims and objections period being put in place for citizens.Just last week, the Mayor sought to clear up some misconceptions being peddled around the community, where some residents were reportedly of the belief that all vehicles traversing the route would be subjected to pay tolls. He noted that businesses which are coming from out of town would be subjected to the toll, while stating that it creates for a level playing field. Holland said however that there’s no cost for private vehicles and taxis.He added that there has been some changes, however, as it relates to costs as he outlined that the previous costs were age old. This, he said, had been discussed during a meeting with the LCICD and was agreed to by the parties involved.last_img read more

Lampard was one of my idols, because as a young midfielder I would see the goals he was scoring or creating every week and look up to him.”I played with the manager later on in his career with England and you could see how motivated he was. It was hard work all the time, running after training, non-stop movement to receive the ball, scoring goals. As a young player seeing that it affects you. You want to do the same things.”He’s taken that into his management. We work really hard and then on the right days we ease off and feel really good for the games.” last_img read more

NZ Union Urges Ports to Stop Emitting Toxic Gas

first_imgzoom The Maritime Union of New Zealand has welcomed the Ports of Auckland’s decision to stop releasing methyl bromide emissions into the air, and called for other ports to follow their example.The move to fully recapture the toxic gas after fumigation, used to kill insects in logs before export, sets a new benchmark for industry best practice, according to the Union.“We will continue the campaign to stop rogue employers exposing people to methyl bromide for another decade if need be,” Joe Fleetwood, MUNZ National Secretary, said.After fumigation is complete the gas can be recaptured and turned into a disposable salt. However, some ports instead release the toxic fumes into the air, endangering workers and nearby communities.“The Government must not allow best practice in some ports to be undermined elsewhere,” Fleetwood said, adding that “if Wellington and Auckland can do the right thing, all ports must.”The Maritime Union continues to call for a total ban on the use of methyl bromide.As part of Ports of Auckland’s ambition to be the most sustainable port in New Zealand, the company earlier said that it will require the total recapture of methyl bromide gas used for container fumigation by September 1, 2017, and for all cargoes by the end of the year.“The intention to move to a full ‘recapture’ system by the end of the year, instead of the current practice of simply venting the gas into the atmosphere, shows leadership and responsibility by Ports management,” Damien O’Connor, Labour’s Spokesperson for Biosecurity, said.“Ports of Auckland’s decision will surely put pressure on the remaining ports around New Zealand which still release methyl bromide,” Damien O’Connor informed.last_img read more

Twitter removes accounts linked to Alex Jones Infowars

first_imgTwitter has removed some accounts thought to be used to circumvent a ban on conspiracy-monger Alex Jones and Infowars, the company said Tuesday.A Twitter spokesman confirmed that the accounts had been removed but provided no additional comment. The company says it usually does not discuss specific accounts.Twitter permanently suspended @realalexjones and @infowars from Twitter and Periscope in early September, later than many other tech companies such as Apple and Facebook. It said it based that action in reports of tweets and videos that violated its policy against abusive behaviour.The ban underscored the difficulty many social-media services face in trying to consistently apply their rules against harassment and other bad behaviour. It was also likely from the start that Jones and his supporters would find ways to get around Twitter’s ban by setting up new accounts or posting from existing accounts that were not part of the initial purge.Twitter said Tuesday it would continue to evaluate reports regarding other accounts potentially associated with @realalexjones or @infowars and would take action if it finds content that violates its rules or if other accounts are used to try to circumvent their ban.As of Tuesday afternoon, an account for Alex Jones podcasts was still up on Twitter, as was another called “InfowarsFeed” that hasn’t tweeted since 2008.Other tech companies, including PayPal, YouTube, Apple and Spotify, have limited or banned Jones’ activities on their sites.Infowars has said the moves are intended to sabotage the site just weeks before the midterm elections.On Twitter and elsewhere, Jones has done such things as describe survivors of a shooting in Parkland, Florida, “crisis actors” and saying the mass killing at Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012 was fake. He had about 900,000 followers on Twitter. Infowars had about 430,000.last_img read more
