Guyoil decreases gasoline, kero prices

first_imgOne day after reports surfaced in the international press of crude oil dropping by two per cent over concerns of a brewing trade war following imposed steel and aluminium tariffs by American President Donald Trump, the Guyana Oil Company Limited (Guyoil), announced decreases for its products on Thursday.With effect from today, motor vehicle operators and other uses will pay less at the pump for gasoline, gasoil (diesel) and kerosene. In a release from the country’s leading petroleum company, it was related that reductions were possible due to “declining acquisition cost”.Users of fuel will pay less at the pumpGasoline was reduced by $2 per litre while gasoil and kerosene saw reductions of $10 and $4 respectively. This means operators buying fuel in Georgetown will pay $202 per litre as opposed to $204 which they were paying when the prices where increased in February. Gasoil users will pay $195 and $133 for kerosene. Berbice users will pay $203 per litre of gasoline while users in Essequibo will now pay $204.“Guyoil is always cognisant of its role in the Guyana economy, ensuring that quality petroleum products are provided at excellent prices,” Marketing Manager Eric Whaul observed.These decreases have seen a reversal of the trend of increases in fuel prices. Apart from an increase in February this year, in September 2017, world market prices for fuel had been also increased due to the hurricane conditions in the southern hemisphere, which resulted in Guyoil adjusting the prices in gasoline, diesel and kerosene to a higher cost.last_img read more

Democratic debate takes on a more polite tone

first_imgDES MOINES – Call it the duck analogy: Tuesday’s Democratic debate, coming amid an intensifying effort to win Iowa’s first voting caucuses, made the presidential contest seem calm on the surface even as the campaigns are paddling feverishly below. In the two-hour debate broadcast on NPR, seven candidates politely discussed the U.S. relationship with China, immigration policy and how to deal with Iran in light of new intelligence information indicating that the country halted its nuclear program in late 2003 and has shown no signs of resuming. Each also managed to show off particular expertise. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Joe Biden demonstrated his mastery of international affairs; John Edwards displayed a fluency with trade matters. But the focus for most political observers remained on Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama, who have stepped up a bitter war of words as polling has showed Obama opening up a slight lead in Iowa. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsIn this format, the two chose to put aside their tough talk and generally found common ground on most topics. Clinton even said – “I agree with Barack” – at certain points, such as on the question of whether U.S. citizens should turn illegal immigrants over to law enforcement. Obama, in turn, toned down his criticism of Clinton’s Senate vote in September declaring the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization even as Edwards, Biden and Chris Dodd said the vote had amounted to a step toward war. “They largely pulled their punches because they realize that escalating a tit-for-tat mudfest presents risks all around,” Democratic strategist Dan Newman said. “The risk for Clinton is that it’s difficult to sling mud without getting a bit dirty yourself. And Obama needs to walk the tightrope of proving he’s tough enough to defend himself, while not being pulled into an ugly back and forth.” Indeed, the exchange over Clinton’s Iran vote was the only contentious moment in the forum, and it drew much less acrimony than it had in past debates. Clinton and Edwards tangled directly over the matter, with Edwards questioning how her vote matched her stated commitment to diplomacy with Iran and Clinton dismissing the criticism as an “outlandish” political charge. The New York senator also noted that Obama told a newspaper in 2004 that he would even consider a missile strike against Iran to take out its nuclear capacity, but Obama said only that her reference to the interview was “a bit misleading.” Nevertheless, the dialogue between the two leading candidates bore little resemblance to the campaign as it has played out in Iowa in recent days. Earlier Tuesday, Clinton campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle sent an e-mail to supporters accusing the Obama camp of placing negative phone calls about the New York senator to voters in Iowa and New Hampshire. Solis Doyle referred to the practice as “dirty tricks,” while the Obama campaign responded by calling the accusation a “falsehood” designed to smear Obama’s character.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DANIEL BREAKS DOWN ON LATE LATE AS HE RECALLS MAJELLA’S BATTLE WITH CANCER

first_imgDaniel fights back tears as he describes his wife Majella’s battle with cancer.Daniel O’Donnell broke down in tears on the Late Late Show as he spoke about his wife Majella’s battle with cancer.The normally ice-cool singer was overcome with emotion as he recounted the moment he realised his wife’s cancer was for real.Daniel, 51, said he was watching Majella having her hair shaved on the Late Late Show when the enormity of what she was doing struck him. The Donegal star choked back tears to host Ryan Tubridy as he revealed “For some reason she was driven to do it and she didn’t know that the cancer society had that shortfall in funds. Everything happens for a reason.“For the first time I felt I knew she was sick. But I suppose we realised that some people are not as lucky as we are and there are so many people that don’t get the good result.“When I saw her sitting there and I saw her speaking I was amazed at her composure and her ability to keep going and to explain everything.“She had researched so much and then to see her and the hair being shaved off and that was the time I realised that this really is it.” He revealed that he and his wife have received huge support since going public on Majella’s battle with the disease.He also revealed how the couple had discussed cancelling his tour of America but Majella said that would be letting the cancer win.“The feeling we had by continuing on the tour was that we were in control of the cancer and the cancer was not in control of us.”He said that although it was hard to be away, he felt like he couldn’t do much for his wife by being by her side.“She will say that she couldn’t explain the feeling the treatment gave her. Every one of them was different. She reacted differently to all of them. “She said that even if I was there all the time I would have been no help to her. Irrespective of what family support, of what medcial support, I think the act of treatment of cancer is a solitary journey.“Of course we can support them but we cannot at any time take away whatever sickness, whatever feeling. It’s not even a feeling she can still describe other than she says it just messes with her head,” he said.He said he called her after the show and told her how fantastic she looked without the hair.The chart-topper also said that he was delighted that Majella has come out of his shadow and that some people now know him as Majella O’Donnell’s husband. “Before I went to Branson I wrote her a wee note. I have known her since 1999 and I told her I was so pleased she had come out from behind my shadow for everyone to know the person I know,” he added.And with the prognosis very bright for Majella’s condition Daniel said he knows that they are among the lucky ones.DANIEL BREAKS DOWN ON LATE LATE AS HE RECALLS MAJELLA’S BATTLE WITH CANCER was last modified: December 14th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:cancerdaniel o’donnellLate Late ShowMajellawifelast_img read more

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka – A bomber pretending to be pregnant talked her way into a military complex Tuesday, then blew herself up in front of a car carrying the Sri Lankan army commander, killing eight people and wounding the officer and 26 others. Government warplanes quickly struck at areas held by the Tamil Tiger rebel movement in a new round of escalating violence that threatens to shred a 4-year-old truce in the island’s civil war. Neither government officials nor the rebels spoke about the state of the truce, but tensions have been worsening along with violence that has killed at least 89 people, including 43 soldiers or police, just this month.last_img read more

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: 5 REASONS WHY YOU ARE NOT MAKING PROGRESS IN THE GYM

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: With so many people taking up fitness and with weight training becoming more popular, it is easy to become overwhelmed with all the information that is out there.Whether your goal is weight loss, muscle gain or performance, I have listed 5 reasons that you may not be seeing progress in the gym.Not having a plan. 

Your first year of training is when you will make the quickest progress in your strength and in your physique. 

This does not mean that you will not make progress after the first year, but it just won’t come as quickly as it does when you start out, especially for muscle gain. 

You wouldn’t try and service your car yourself, so why try and figure out your way around the gym by yourself? Having a tailored program (from a qualified professional) will help you to maximise your results and time spent in the gym.Program Hopping

This is something that a lot of people seem to get wrong. 

There is an idea that you have to change your program every 4 weeks to ‘keep the body guessing’ and create ‘muscle confusion’, or results will plateau and stall altogether. 

This isn’t the case. 

With so many magazines giving a new program every month and with You Tube having so many ‘experts’ giving their enthusiastic advice, it is easy to see where the confusion is coming from. 

Once you find a balanced program that works for you, stick to it for 2-3 months. 

As long as you are trying to progress through increasing the weight on the bar or the number of reps you are doing and you are evaluating your progress every week, you will see results. 

You have to give the program a chance.Not keeping a training log

This is the easiest thing that you can do to keep track of yourself and to ensure that you make progress in the gym.All you need is a notebook and a pen and you are good to go. 

Have your workout session for that day filled in and look at where you progressed and where you struggled from your previous session.

Write down the weight you have lifted and the number of sets and reps. 

If you have a good day you will have a new goal for your next session, if you fail on a lift you can adjust the weight for your next session. 

It is the easiest and cheapest way to make sure that you progress in the gym. 

You should never walk into a workout and try to figure out what you did from your previous session. Only training the ‘Mirror Muscles’.This is a common mistake by guys in the weights room. 

They train all the muscles on the anterior plane of the body and neglect the posterior chain altogether. 

What they end up with is an unbalanced physique where the chest, front delts and biceps are over developed and the back, rear delts and triceps are neglected. 

This drags the posture forward and makes the trainee look ‘closed in’ around the chest area. 

For every exercise you for the front of the body try and do an opposing exercise for the back to maintain balance in your physique. 

If your posture is extremely poor you may need to do a 2:1 ratio of back to front exercises.Having unrealistic expectations

One thing that I always do during the consultation process is goal setting. 

I get the client to write out their 1, 3, 6 and 12 month goals. 

This gives me an idea of what their expectations are; both from themselves and from me as their trainer. 

The most common thing that I find is that their expectations are almost always at the extremes, either way too high or not enough. 

When it comes to fat loss, 1lb per week is great; actually it’s FANTASTIC. 

This is something that people really need to realise. 

If you are losing 1lb per week, over the course of a year you will have 52lbs lost, that’s 3 and a half stone in old money. 

Anyone who thinks that this is not enough needs to reassess their goals. 

For muscle gain, male beginners can expect 1-2lbs per month. (Women can half these amounts). 

For intermediates with up to 3 years training experience, you could gain up to 1lb per month. For anyone with more experience than that, the amount will change person to person depending on calorie intake, volume and training intensity.Your time in the gym is limited and precious. Not having a plan can seriously hamper your progress. 
Fixing these common mistakes can help you to avoid your plateaus and take your training to the next level.#TrainSmart For further information on Personal Training or to get a structured training program, please contact me through the link below.

LARGE DONEGAL CONTINGENT EXPECTED AT DUBLIN WATER MARCH TODAY

first_imgRight2Water Donegal say they expect thousands to travel from the county to today’s march against water charges in Dublin.Donegal protestors at a previous march. Pic by Northwest Newspix.The event is the latest in a series of demonstrations aginst the imposition of water charges as the first bills are expected to be delivered to households in the coming weeks.Sinead Stewart, a Right2Water organiser in Inishowen, believes the protest will send another clear message to the coalition Government that the ordinary Irish people have had enough of austerity. “We as a people have been hit hard by the economic downturn and the subsequent taxes and cuts which have been imposed upon us. The water charges and the establishment of Irish Water was a step too far, and we are committed to defeating this unjust, unfair and unwarranted attack on our water resources” she said.She continued “A large turnout from Donegal on Saturday will not only restate our core assertion that water is a human right and underline our continuing demand for the total abolition of water charges. It will also send a clear message that we refuse to be bullied and intimidated into acquiescence.”Details of Saturday’s event are on the various local Right2Water Facebook pages as well as www.right2water.ie.LARGE DONEGAL CONTINGENT EXPECTED AT DUBLIN WATER MARCH TODAY was last modified: March 21st, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:dublinrallywater chargeslast_img read more
