Dear Editor,Human nature is invariably flawed with envy, greed, jealousy, and sometimes cruel instincts, yet even in the worst of us, there is the attribute of compassion. The attribute of compassion may vary. However, its underlying nature remains the same- to do good. Large attributes and mercurial fragments encompasses empathy, kindness and action. In whatever form or matter, compassion is within each of us. Compassion is often aligned with the indefinable soul. The villains of compassion are hate, which is a permanent imbalance of the brain -or a disease-, and anger considered by many to be a form of temporary insanity. International and/or Local Corporations, through their executives and individuals need to show compassion, especially when in high office. The reality, is that those losing high office, often seek compassion from the new overlords, who are now entrusted and contracted with executive and administrate power.Reason does not always govern compassion; the compassionate act may arise out of human nature- like a cat protecting a mouse; most unusual and unexpected, yet time and time again, generation after generation, within all epochs, compassion has rendered its virtues and limitless nature in small and large ways. Its strands of beneficence have never not been present over the millenniums. Forgiveness is a subset of compassion and we all, at some point in our lives seek compassionate acts from family, a stranger, friend or foe.It is this compassionate will, within the human nature that distinguishes us from the lower class of animals. The ability to reason and be reasonable, is the essence of human beings that distinguishes us from all other life forms on this earth and speaks to the higher spirits that resides within us all. What you may ask is the purpose of this letter? This letter seeks to let compassion bloom in Guyana, and undoubtably both the giver and receiver of compassion, will resonate positive connections across race, religion, culture and class, and the ties of compassion will strengthen our nation.The law is lesser than custom and convention; and the law, custom and convention are all secondary to compassion.Confucius the preeminent philosopher, believed by many to have the greatest mind over the last 2,500 years, noted that: “Wisdom, compassion, and courage are the three universally recognized moral qualities of men”. The Greco-Roman philosophers Plato and Cicero referenced wisdom, courage, temperance and justice as the cardinal virtues, with justice considered the most important virtue. I will be in good company with Confucius to say that justice or fairness are key elements of compassion.Sincerely,Nigel Hinds
Ranks of the Guyana Police Force and Guyana Fire Service were called in to assist in what appears to be aFire Service and Police outside the Camp Street Prision on Mondaystandoff between prison officers and prisoners at the Camp Street Prison on Monday.While information remains sketchy about the incident, Operations Officer of the Guyana Fire Service Compton Sparman, when contacted told Guyana Times firefighters responded to a report of a standoff between prison officials and inmates within the confines of Camp Street Penitentiary.He however noted that by the time they arrived at the location, the situation was under control. He noted that any calls that come from the prison is treated with priority since the recent unrest that claimed the lives of 17 prisoners.Seventeen prisoners were burnt to death on March 3, 2016 after inmates at prison set several fires in protest of the conditions of prison cells. One day after, the prisoners broke down a wooden wall of the prison, again calling for immediate attention.This prompted the intervention of Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan along with State Minister Joseph Harmon to meet with a group of aggrieved prisoners. After the meeting the prisoners halted their protests due the ministers promise to address some of the concerns raised.However, this unrest has led to the establishment of a Commission of Inquiry to determine if the death of the 17 prisoners were due to neglect by the prison officials on duty at the time. So far, at least five inmates have testified, giving their account of what took place on that fateful day.
Eighteen-year-old Faith Green, a visually impaired student, has secured six passes at this year’s Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examination.Green, who resides in TucVille, Georgetown, was able to pursue the subjects with assistance from the Guyana Society for the Blind.Faith Green, a visually impaired studentIn an interview with Guyana Times on Tuesday at the Society’s headquarters on High Street, Georgetown, the teen, who was the best performing student at the Society, said she intends to further her studies with her aim to become a journalist.Green, like her colleagues, wrote English A, Social Studies, Principles of Accounts, Human and Social Biology, Principles of Business and Office Administration. She secured a Grade One, three Grade Twos and two Grade Threes.While sharing her journey to success, the student said she was faced with a number of challenges but particularly listed health issues as the major one.Due to the problems she faced with her sight, Green explained that she experienced severe headaches whenever she attempted to study for long hours.“Most of the challenges came from, you know, you have to study a lot, you have to work real hard to get the subjects that you wanted. Sometimes you didn’t want to but you had to force yourself cause at the end you made a difference”, the young lady stated.Another visually impaired student, Omesh Jhagroo, 37, in tears, explained that he lost his sight at the age of 25 due to health complications.As a child, Jhagroo said, he always had difficulty seeing and was unable to perform like the other students in his class.Nonetheless, he believes that if a person living without disabilities can write and ace the exams, then so can persons living with disabilities.“As long as you put your mind to it, you can make it,” he assured. He secured passes in five subjects.Twenty-seven-year-old Sachi Harricharan explained that there were times he felt like giving up, but continued studying.Today, he said, he is very “pleased” to know he was able to secure passes in five subject areas.Harricharan plans to write Mathematics at next year’s CSEC examination as he intends to become an entrepreneur and is cognisant of the importance of the subject.On the other hand, 18-year-old Robecka Edinboro, who is visually impaired, said although she was not able to pass Mathematics, she is happy that she secured passes in four subjects.This year, the Guyana Society for the Blind saw the sixth batch of students sitting the examinations. Five children were able to write CSEC and a 95 per cent pass rate was recorded, the best in a number of years.Programme Coordinator for the Council of Organisations for Persons with Disabilities, Ganesh Singh noted that with the individual successes, it will assist the students in securing jobs.
OTTAWA — A group with roots in the oil and gas industry is encouraging women to talk about politics this fall, even if they hold widely different views.The non-profit organization, called Canada Powered by Women, registered as a third-party advertiser with Elections Canada last month,and has received $32,500 in contributions from several Calgary-based people and businesses so far. That includes $25,000 from Susan Riddell Rose, the CEO of Perpetual Energy Inc., a natural-gas company.Lucy Miller, a former head of the United Way of Calgary, said the idea for the group began when some women got together over the summer and started talking about the Oct. 21 election.- Advertisement -“They came together because they were concerned about what’s been happening in the country over the last four years,” said Miller, the spokeswoman for the group, who noted the carbon tax brought in by the Liberal government Justin Trudeau was one of the shared concerns.“We had our own personal things that we were looking at, but then we started to say, ‘I wonder how the rest of Canada is feeling? What are other women thinking?’ ” she said. “Maybe this conversation should be bigger.”The organization is launching its campaign in Calgary next week, encouraging women to take part in an online conversation by following the hashtag #canadapoweredbywomen, promoted by a similarly named Instagram profile.Advertisement Canadian voters are thinking about climate change and the environment more than ever before, according to most public opinion polls, with scientific findings and personal experiences with extreme weather-related events bringing the issue to the fore.Still, Elections Canada warned some environmental advocacy groups this summer that any paid communications about the truth of climate change could be considered a partisan issue once the election is called, because Maxime Bernier, the leader of the People’s Party of Canada, is promoting a platform that denies climate change is caused by human activity.The Canada Elections Act restricts third-party advertising during campaigns, affecting any ads about issues that any political party brings up once the election is called.The rules do not prevent third parties from talking about the issues, but if they spend more than $500 on an ad then they have to register as a third-party advertiser trying to influence how people vote.Miller said the women behind the registered third-party group did not create it to push their own agenda.Advertisement “Everybody has their own issues, and we want them to share their issues, so we don’t want it to be all about us,” she said.“Mostly, we want women to be involved,” she said. “We want them to feel they have a safe platform to discuss things that are important to them, without being judged.”—Follow @smithjoanna on TwitterJoanna Smith, The Canadian Press That account, which had about 2,100 followers as of Tuesday evening, has already begun posting things like tips for how to consume political news, a question asking women to share what their ideal lives would look like in four years, and images of both Trudeau and Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer with their families on the first day of school.The group will also be releasing a report it commissioned from Leger Research, which suggests women are lagging behind men when it comes to how confident they feel talking about important issues in social settings, or trusting their own judgment when it comes to casting their votes.Miller, who sits on the board of directors at Tourmaline Oil Corp., made it clear that the environment — and the ways in which she disagrees with how the Liberal government has been handling the file — is an issue that is important to those who started the group.She said she does not think it was a good idea to ban oil-tanker traffic on the northern B.C. coast, wants to see Trudeau do more to push the construction of pipelines and would like to see Canadian oil and gas promoted as a comparatively clean source of energy around the world.Advertisement
The 27-year-old appeared to shout “f**k off” at the crowd as he stormed towards the tunnel and pulled off his shirt.Arsenal manager Unai Emery admitted Xhaka was wrong to react that way and refused to confirm if he would remain skipperXhaka has held three meetings with Emery since the incident but the club are putting the player’s welfare ahead of any quick decision over his future.Reports in the British media on Tuesday said counselling will be offered should Xhaka decide on such a course of action, with Emery describing the midfielder’s mood as “upset, devastated and very sad”.It is also believed the outburst was a reaction to cumulative issues which have built up over time, including social media posts targeting Xhaka and his family.His wife Leonita set her own Instagram profile to private after receiving abusive messages aimed at her husband, while Xhaka himself raised a few eyebrows by changing his profile picture on the platform from one where he is sporting the Arsenal armband to an image of him captaining Switzerland.It is understood Xhaka has been made aware by the club of the benefits of offering an apology, but he is so far not in the right frame of mind to do so and is keen for any subsequent acknowledgement of wrongdoing to be genuine.“At the moment, I am not speaking and I don’t want to speak about that,” Emery replied when asked if Xhaka could lose the captaincy over the issue.“Now he is upset, devastated and sad. It is not only yesterday and today. He is feeling the supporters don’t like him.“His commitment with the club is a great commitment every time. He wants to help.“His behaviour was perfect in training, with the group and with the club. He knows he was wrong.“He was wrong and he feels it inside very deeply. But that is normal as a human.”Xhaka will not travel with Arsenal for Wednesday’s League Cup tie at Liverpool.0Shares0000(Visited 20 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Granit Xhaka (C) is in hot water for swearing at Arsenal fans © AFP / DANIEL LEAL-OLIVASLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 30 – Arsenal will offer counselling to Granit Xhaka after the Gunners captain found himself in trouble for swearing at his own fans, according to reports in the British press.Xhaka cupped his ears and gesticulated to towards Arsenal fans who booed him when he was substituted during Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium.

Change doesn’t always come quickly at an institution as big and venerable as the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). But advocates for agricultural research were pleased this week when the White House budget request included $75 million for three new research institutes. The announcement comes in the first budget request possible after a report by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) recommended the idea as part of an approach to stimulating more innovation in agricultural research.“This is a very exciting moment for us in agricultural research,” says Molly Jahn of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and an author of the PCAST report. “We’ve been heard.”The plans for the institutes, which are not yet fully sketched out, were inspired by research hubs undertaken by the Department of Energy (DOE) and public-private partnerships, such as energy company BP’s investment at the University of California, Berkeley. If approved by Congress, each institute would receive $25 million a year (ideally for 5 years) that would be used to stimulate research relevant to companies and the public.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)PCAST argued that there are key challenges and opportunities in agriculture that don’t offer immediate financial incentives for companies to invest in research, but for which science is likely to help create solutions. Creating collaborations between industry scientists, government researchers, and academics can stimulate these new ideas and products, the committee concluded. PCAST recommended USDA fund six institutes and tap expertise at other agencies, including the National Science Foundation, DOE, and the National Institutes of Health, the committee said. In a fact sheet about the institutes, USDA notes that the participants should be chosen on a competitive basis, and the institutes should build on university, company, and USDA infrastructure. “Funds should go to research, not to bricks and mortar,” the department writes. USDA is asking for funding for institutes that would work on biomanufacturing and bioproducts development, pollination and pollinator health, and antimicrobial resistance research to fill emerging information gaps.There are many details to work out. PCAST mentioned a few: “Such a structure needs to be built and will likely require a clear definition of research responsibility for each aspect of the research, from conception to handling of data and publication. An open environment of investigation and publication is usually most beneficial, although the need to protect proprietary aspects of research must be considered for businesses to participate fully.”The institutes appear to be a priority for administration officials. They were mentioned in Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack’s public remarks about the budget, and they were included in the agency’s core budget request, not a separate $56 billion fund—known as the Opportunity, Growth, and Security Initiative—that Congress is unlikely to fully fund. USDA may be covering the cost by trimming its intramural research arm, which would decline under the budget request by 2.1% to $1.2 billion. In line with recent administration efforts to boost competitive extramural funding, however, the proposed budget for 2015 would increase the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative by 2.8% to $325 million.
