Education Minister Nicolette Henry has called for Guyanese to unite as one people working as a nation with one destiny while addressing her fellow Berbicians in New Amsterdam on Friday evening at the town’s flag-raising ceremony to usher in Guyana’s 52nd Independence anniversary.Education Minister Nicolette HenryAddressing hundreds who braved the inclement weather to attend the ceremony, which was held at State House, the Minister said Guyanese should use this period to remember the struggles of their ancestors who made it possible for them to enjoy the freedom that they take for granted.The Minister noted that the peace and happiness which they enjoy in Guyana was made possible by our fore-parents.“It is our predecessors – the freedom fighters and nation builders – that made it possible for us to be the masters of our faith and captives of our destiny. We must, therefore, never forget that those men, women, and children; those freedom fighters who came together from every ethnic background, from every religious background to fight for a common goal – the common right of freedom.”Minister Henry said Guyana was developing at a fast rate in the fields of agriculture, education, technology, and sports and as such, insisted that all Guyanese understand their individual responsibilities.“We all need to be nation builders to continue the legacy our ancestors left for us. As we celebrate the gift of democracy, let us resolve to continue the journey of inclusionary democracy and reaffirm our respect for our Constitution. As we look to the future, let us find ways of ending our historic divisions,” Henry stated.She told the hundreds in attendance that Guyana as a country would not be able to realise its goals if as a people, we remained divided. “I believe that we are better together as one people, one nation with one destiny.”Also addressing the ceremony were New Amsterdam Mayor Winifred Haywood, who spoke of the strides the country’s oldest town has made since the country became an independent state while Regional Councillor Phillip Rose highlighted that as citizens, Guyanese needed to do better when it came to social cohesion.The ceremony also featured a rich cultural presentation comprising dances, poems, a military display and most importantly, the hoisting of the National Flag.
(BEL/Borussia Dortmund, 29 years old)Belgium midfielder Axel Witsel is expected to play a key role for Borussia Dortmund this season after his transfer to the Bundesliga from Chinese side Tianjin Quanjian. © AFP/File / GABRIEL BOUYSHaving finished third at the World Cup with Belgium, the central midfielder is expected to take up a key role at Dortmund since his 20 million euros ($22.9 milliom) transfer from Tianjin Quanjian. Witsel came off the bench and scored the equaliser in Monday’s 2-1 German Cup, first-round win at Greuther Fuerth before captain Marco Reus scored the winner deep into extra time. However, having played in the Belgian, Portuguese, Russian and Chinese leagues, there are question marks about how Witsel will cope with the more physically demanding Bundesliga.DAVY KLAASSEN(NED/Werder Bremen, 25)After making his Champions League debut at 18 at Ajax, Klaassen has joined Werder Bremen following a disappointing high-profile move to Everton last season. Bremen have splashed out 13.5 million euros on the attacking midfielder who had the late Johann Cruyff as one of his admirers. “You have to have a strong positional game, strong ball control and the technique to handle midfield speed and Xavi, Toni Kroos and Davy Klaassen can do that,” said Cruyff in 2014.ALASSANE PLEA(FRA/Borussia Moenchengladbach, 25)Alassane Plea (R) and Thorgan Hazard (L) both scored hat-tricks in Borussia Moenchengladbach’s 11-1 romp at Hastedt last Sunday in the German Cup. © dpa/AFP / Carmen JaspersenHe showed he has an eye for goal with a hat-trick on his competition debut last Sunday when Gladbach romped to an 11-1 win over minnows Hastedt in the first-round of the German Cup. Costing 23 million euros, he is the most expensive transfer in the club’s history. He joins Borussia after scoring 44 goals and setting up 23 more in 135 games for Nice. “He’s a versatile, fast and intelligent attacker, who has proven his qualities,” said Gladbach’s director of sport Max Eberl.PAULINHO(BRA/Bayer Leverkusen, 18)Not to be confused with the 30-year-old Barcelona midfielder, on loan at Guangzhou Evergrande who has the same name, the teenager Paulinho is a winger, who cost Leverkusen 18.5 million euros and has already impressed. “He doesn’t look like someone who could still play youth football,” said Leverkusen’s director Rudi Voeller. “He is full of self-confidence and wants to have the ball to show what he can do.” Nevertheless, the Brazilian faces some stiff competition with Jamaica’s Leon Bailey and Germany’s Julian Brandt currently ahead of him in the pecking order on the left wing.KASIM ADAMS NUHU(GHA, Hoffenheim, 23)The Ghana international defender won the Swiss league with Young Boys Bern last season after cutting his teeth with Real Mallorca for two seasons in the Spanish league. At 1.90m tall, he is a solid presence at the back and a powerful header. He cost eight million euros, and Hoffenheim hope he will be a force to be reckoned with when they make their Champions League debut in 2018/19.MATHEUS CUNHA(BRA, RB Leipzig, 19)Leipzig have uncovered yet another exciting, young prospect. The teenager scored 10 goals last season and set up another eight for Swiss club FC Sion and looks likely to transfer his talents to the German league. The centre forward already has two goals in four Europa League qualifiers so far this season. Having cost 15 million euros, Leipzig coach Ralf Rangnick describes the fleet-footed Cunha as a “very interesting striker” who has “developed impressively” in recent months.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000BERLIN, Germany, Aug 23 – The 2018/19 Bundesliga kicks off on Friday when champions Bayern Munich host Hoffenheim.

RICHMOND, Va. – U.S. Rep. Jo Ann Davis, a Republican who represented southeastern Virginia for seven years, died Saturday morning after a two-year battle with breast cancer, her office said. Davis, 57, died at her home in Gloucester. Davis was found to have breast cancer in 2005 and had a recurrence this year. Her health took a turn for the worse during the past week, her office said. She became Virginia’s first Republican woman elected to Congress in 2000, and she was a member of the House Armed Services Committee and the Foreign Affairs Committee. “Her determination to fight the disease is an inspiration to all of us,” President George W. Bush said in a statement. “She was a fine example of a public servant who worked hard to cut government waste to ensure the people’s money was used wisely,” Bush said. “Her common-sense values will be missed on Capitol Hill.” Gov. Timothy Kaine, a Democrat, will schedule a special election, probably before the end of the year, to fill the remaining year of Davis’ term, Kaine spokeswoman Delacey Skinner said. Her first piece of legislation, passed by the House in 2001, increased the life insurance benefit paid to survivors of military members killed on duty. Before Congress, Davis served four years in the Virginia House of Delegates. A conservative who came from modest means, Davis was known for her unquenchable inquisitiveness and how quickly and deeply she learned about any legislative issue. “I always admired Congresswoman Davis’ strong convictions and the tenacity that she brought to bear in acting on them,” said U.S. Sen. John W. Warner, a fellow Virginia Republican. She attended Hampton Roads Business College; she got her real estate license in 1984 and her real estate broker’s license four years later. In 1990, she opened Jo Ann Davis Realty. She underwent chemotherapy treatments and a mastectomy when her cancer was first diagnosed in 2005. When the cancer returned, she underwent chemotherapy again and often monitored hearings from home. Survivors include her husband, Chuck, two sons and a granddaughter.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

26 August 2004South African businesses have over the years been consistently investing in South Africa – and analysts say the idea that local businesses are unpatriotic is a myth.That’s after the release of the Reserve Bank’s latest annual economic report, which shows an upward trend in investment spending in South Africa – spurred by a sharp increase in capital expenditure by parastatals, and a steady growth in investment by the private sector. 2004 annual economic report Private sector investment spending remained stable in the first half of 2004, recording 7.5% growth compared to 8% in 2003. This is in line with the consistent growth experienced in the sector in recent years.The 0.5% slump was due the cancellation or postponement of capital projects in the mining sector. However, a strong increase in capital spending in the residential building sector and on vehicles was experienced, primarily due to low interest rates and the property boom.FirstRand economist Rudolf Gouws told Business Day that the facts show that the idea that South Africa businesses are unpatriotic and afraid of investing in the country is a myth. Since 1993, fixed-capital formation by the private sector has grown steadily – even faster than the gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate.The Reserve Bank said in its report that investment spending by public corporations spiked to 56.5% in the first half of 2004, up from 3.5% in the second half of last year. This was largely due to South African Airways’ purchase of Airbuses.The Bank’s governor, Tito Mboweni, said the country’s fiscal and monetary policies were the predominant reasons for the increase in growth, and had led to increased spending in infrastructural development by the government to create jobs. The government’s spending also increased due to the procurement of a number of corvettes for the South African Navy.Record economic expansionMboweni noted that the South African economy has been in an upward phase of the business cycle since the fourth quarter of 1999. “This is the longest recorded period of economic expansion in the history of the country”, he said.An expansionary economic policy and aggressive domestic demand trebled economic growth to 3% in the first half of 2004, up from 1% in the last six months of 2003.However, investment spending is still below the level needed to sufficiently stimulate job creation, according to Business Day. While investment spending has risen to 16% of GDP – up from 14.5% in 2001 – it is still below the long-term target average of 20%. Mboweni said it “certainly falls short of the fixed-capital formation ratio in more rapidly growing emerging markets”.The Bank said that real economic growth in the domestic economy decelerated to only 2% for the year 2003 as a whole.Production volumes in manufacturing dropped off, partly due to the weakness of demand in the European Union and a decline in international price competitiveness experienced by domestic producers. Output in agriculture fell back as a result of poor climatic conditions and relatively low product prices.Lower interest rates, a growth-supportive fiscal policy stance and higher international prices for export commodities raised business as well as consumer confidence in the first half of 2004. All the main economic sectors have recorded increases in output in the first half of year.The Bank said platinum production continued along a strong upward trajectory. In manufacturing, the increases in production were mainly a response to the strength of the domestic market.Besides the boost to the construction sector, transport, storage and communication services displayed the strongest growth among the tertiary sectors.SouthAfrica.info reporter
