Beijing Debate: Men’s 400m Hurdles

first_imgKC: Can the 32-year-old ‘Batman’ Bershawn Jackson fly in the men’s 400m hurdles? Andre: He really needs to get rid of that stupid nickname, but besides that, he’s been the form athlete in what is usually a strong 400m hurdles field. Edwin Moses did win as a 32-year-old in 1987, and I think Bershawn Jackson can match that in Beijing. KC: He has been having a great season and with only one defeat, and with a season best of 48.09 seconds, he looks well set to go sub-48 seconds here as well. Andre: A gold medal for him would be a great story, too, after he came close to quitting the sport last season after he wasn’t able to get into any races due to a string of poor seasons, but still, he isn’t the only one doing well in this event. Johnny Dutch has also been impressive, and at 48.13, can also go sub-48 seconds here and pose a real threat. Also, he’s the last man to have beaten Jackson this year. KC: True, but among all the others who are doing well, the only one I think has an outside chance against Jackson is Michael Tinsley. After some personal problems, he seems to be getting things right, and I will not be surprised if he upstaged Jackson. Andre: I’m not sure Tinsley will finish in the top four! Problems or not, he simply isn’t running fast enough right now and will need to find a huge season best to be a factor for gold. His last and only really good race this year came in early June. That’s a long time ago. KC: Tinsley has done well over the years when it matters most. After being edged out by Jehue Gordon for the gold medal at the last Worlds, he will be even hungrier this time. He has the beating of this field and all respect to people like Javier Culson and Johnny Dutch, but I don’t see any of them ahead of Tinsley for second place. Andre: I’m going with form. I respect Tinsley’s experience, but Dutch is a top-three machine. I think we both agree Bershawn Jackson will win, but I’m picking Dutch to take second and The Bahamas’ Jeffery Gibson taking bronze. KC: Yes, Jackson will go 47 seconds and win his second title in 10 years, but he must be wary of Tinsley, who I pick for second place, with Javier Culson closing out the Trifecta.last_img read more

CRC Participants Want NEC Board Elected

first_imgThe Chairperson of the Constitutional Review Committee (CRC), Cllr. Gloria Musu Scott, has disclosed that participants of the CRC initiative are calling for board members of National Elections Commission (NEC) to be elected.Speaking Monday, May 26, at a one-day meeting with business communities, the CRC chairperson said, people in the diaspora and other parts of Liberia have stressed the need for the commission to exist only during election and later dissolve.According to Cllr. Gloria Scott, participants from the various counties suggested that this will allow the commission to be more independent in conducting free, fair and transparent election without any interfering of the president and the national legislature.Cllr. Gloria Scott explained that, quizzing the members of the National Elections Commission on Friday, May 23, some members from NEC agreed with the participants’ suggestions on the report as the way forward to conducting free, fair and transparent election in Liberia. The chairperson of CRC, however, disclosed that participants also highlighted other important issues of national concern including special seat for disable at the National Legislature, people charged with corruption should be denied public offices, former heads of state should be well taken care of and the issue of tenure of the President should be reduced from six to four years; senators from nine to six years and the representatives to 4 years.“This will make the senators and representatives to be very serious in responding to voters need when elected and if wanting to be re-elected in their county or district.”   The Cllr. Gloria M. Scott said the participants also called on the committee to address the issue of child’s rights as many parents and other guardians had been jailed for disciplining their children at home.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgForty-two-year-old Orlando Fraser of Soesdyke, East Bank Demerara was rushed to the Diamond Diagnostic Centre on Sunday at about 1:00hr, after he lost control of the red XTrail SUV he was driving and it broke a utility pole before slamming into the verandah of a home at Lot 14 Sarah Johanna, East Bank Demerara.Owner of the house, Zubeda Ali, told Guyana Times that when she was awakened by the crashing sound, she thought a vehicle had been involved in an accident; but as she got out of bed and opened the door leading to the verandah to make enquiries, she realised that the car was right in front of her eyes. As she looked closer, she saw the driver being lifted out of the vehicle to be taken to the hospital.She said that, from all indications, the driver might have been drunk, and would have lost control while negotiating the turn.The house into which the SUV slammedThe vehicle, she added, has been destroyed, and so has her verandah.She said she thanks God that nothing serious had happened, and also is happy to hear that the driver is not in a critical state.She said the driver has promised to return to look after the damaged property as soon as he has been discharged from the hospital.The police are, however, investigating the incident.last_img read more

 

Govt admits it solicited traders to sell crude oil on spot market

first_img– claims it consulted with Public Procurement Commission before inviting tradersThe Energy Department has finally broken its silence after a Bloomberg report exposed the Government’s plans to approach traders directly and have them buy Guyana’s oil and sell it. According to the Department, the arrangement is not a long term but rather an interim one.Energy Department Head, Dr Mark BynoeIn a statement issued on Sunday, the Department said that the arrangement was only meant to last for the first three crude lifts. The Department noted that because of Guyana’s relative inexperience, the decision was made to have others buy and sell the oil first, while the Department watches and learns.The Department said that its uncertainty about the quality of the crude and the cost to refine it was another factor in this decision. This is despite Exxon consistently announcing that the crude it has found in the Liza Field is of high quality. According to the Department, however, it will take several lifts to establish the quality of crude.“Guyana’s main incentive in taking this approach is to establish a norm in terms of quality standard and quantity availability so as to prevent any possible down-pricing. What the DE is seeking to accomplish with the short-term approach is to allow for stabilisation and standardisation to prevent our Liza crude from being priced downwards due to uncertainty of the quality.”“Upon careful consideration of all advice and exigencies of this moment, the DE initiated a conversation with a selected group of companies for a potential placement of only the first three cargoes of Guyana’s entitlement. This allows Guyana to sell its crude directly to the selected operators,” the Department said.A novel approachThe Department admitted that this may be considered a “novel” approach, a point that was made by the Bloomberg article. However, the Department defended the unusual situation by noting that learning from the traders was a strategic move that has precedent. Moreover, it claimed to have consulted with the Public Procurement Commission (PPC) before deciding on this course of action.“This strategy was employed upon serious consideration of advice given by an international team external to the DE.  The advisory team consists of the following persons, a Crude Marketing Specialist, a Commercial Specialist and an external Legal Adviser, among others.”“The logic is that given Guyana’s inexperience and the impending early date of the first lifts, an introduction phase of the grade was more advantageous to Guyana at this time,” the Department also said.But while the Department claims it will be relying on the traders to ‘hold Guyana’s hand’ and show it how to sell its oil, a source knowledgeable about the oil sector has pointed out to this publication that the oil industry is never as black and white as the Department seems to believe.According to the source, traders will not surprisingly get a better price due to their connections with most global refineries. According to the source, refiners of crude and oil companies are known for having conflicts of interest.In fact, the government has every intention to sell oil on spot market in an attempt to show the electorate oil funds before the March 2, 2020 Regional and National elections.Long-term contractMeanwhile, the Energy Department also said that a Request For Proposals (RFP) will be issued next month, which will initiate the process to procure a marketing firm on a long-term basis to sell Guyana’s crude in the open market. This process, according to the Department, could take three months.It was only last week that Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo denounced plans to sign a long-term contract to market Guyana’s crude, before the General and Regional Elections that are due on March 2, 2020.Jagdeo was at the time speaking at his weekly press conference and his comments came after a Bloomberg article revealed that companies from the United States, Switzerland and England would be paying Guyana a visit to vie for the opportunity to buy and sell Guyana’s oil.“They are busy trying [to procure companies],” Jagdeo had revealed. “They called a company, asking if they can put in a proposal, to lift our share of profit oil. But they don’t really want that company.”“They want to say they consulted widely, because, behind the scenes, they are working on a deal to tie up a long-term contract for the lifting of our share of the oil. And we’re never going to accept that.”While Guyana will eventually be going the route of outsourcing the sale of its oil, there are, in fact, a number of methods that are used around the world to sell oil. In some cases, a national oil company representing the oil-producing country will negotiate a long-term contract with a buyer. In the contract, the price is usually pre-determined with a benchmark.There are also methods like on the spot sales, where oil cargoes are sold on an individual basis and prices determined on the spot. This is, in fact, the method being used by the Energy Department in the short term. Then there are hybrid sales, where an oil producer can use both term contracts and the spot market.There are also delivery agreements where producers with stakes in refineries can create a safe market for their crude and control their prices according to the costs incurred during the refining process.Refineries are usually a preferred option to sell oil to, since they offer protection and reduced risks. Selling directly to traders comes with its own challenges, especially if traders aggressively negotiate the sale terms and pressure the country, in this case, Guyana, for favourable treatment… something Guyana knows all too well from the Production Sharing Agreements (PSAs) it has already negotiated.last_img read more
