Mbala return leans on BOT

first_imgBen Mbala Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netOnly the UAAP Board of Trustees (BOT)—made up of the eight presidents of member schools—has the power to revise or suspend eligibility rules including the Seven Year Out of High School policy that will prevent La Salle’s two time Most Valuable Player Ben Mbala from seeing action in Season 81 next year.La Salle remained mum on the case of Mbala on Wednesday as efforts to reach officials proved futile, although coach Aldin Ayo had earlier announced he expects the Cameroonian big man to return next season when they try to regain the crown won by rival Ateneo on Sunday in a thrilling three-game series.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

Gbarpolu: Mining Activities Impede VRU Process, Says NEC Magistrate

first_imgThe National Elections Commission (NEC) Voter Roll Update is not going as smoothly as anticipated in Gbarpolu County because those that the exercise is intended for are busy attending to mining and farming activities.The NEC, prior to the commencement of the registration process was looking forward to signing up tens of thousands of young people, many of whom would be first time voters in the October 14, 2014 Special Senatorial election.  However, to their surprise the young people in that part of the country seem to be casting an economic vote, mining gold and diamonds, rather than taking advantage of the VRU exercise.NEC’s Gbarpolu Magistrate, Duke Sarnor, said most of the young people in the county are wholly and solely involved in mining activities. “This seems to be an obstacle to the process.”According to magistrate Sarnor, the exercise is not proceeding as expected because the young people are not responding positively. “They are not coming out to register because almost all of them are involved in gold and diamond mining and this is an embarrassment because we don’t have the time to interact with the youths.”NEC has embarked on a process to register about 250,000 voters, with primary attention to be given first time voters. First time voters include those who were below the voting age of 18 prior to the 2011 general and Presidential elections.Speaking to reporters in Bopolu, Mr. Sarnor indicated, that the VRU process will not be a success if the present trend continues. “There are more young people in this place, but they are not taking advantage of the exercise.  They are keeping themselves too busy and this is a problem.”He also made mention of some level of difficulties being faced by the VRU team due to inaccessibility. He complained of logistical support, most especially means of transport.The NEC magistrate made reference to Henry Town as part of Bopolu which has low amount of participation in the VRU process.“Our staff made it to go in those inaccessible areas. What they do is drive to the end of the roads, get down and used porters to help them through.”The local NEC official also confirm of receiving relative low number of registrations from Henry Town.  He said the cause of the low numbers from first time voters in that part of Liberia is because both the parents and children leave the community to get to various mining sites early in the morning.“In order to help our people be part of the VRU process we included civil educators to help them by performing dramas and speaking other dialects that they understand.  Thank God that the process is going on and we can’t have the people blame anyone because this is Liberia first time carry on this process,” said Mr. Sarnor. Some youth have voiced out their preference for minding their own business, mining minerals, rather than minding politicians who will fail them.“I’m not going to be part of this process because the people we vote for are not working for the good of their citizens,” said 19 year-old Emmanuel Kamara, “so I rather go to the diamond mine early in the morning to look for my daily bread then to waste my time.”Would-be first-time voter Roseline Hinneh, 18, of Bopolu sees it differently, however.  “I registered to be part of decision making in my country because it’s my right as a citizen. I have noticed that over the years I was stopped by NEC staff from being part of the process because I did not reach the actual age, now that I am of age, I will vote the person with a heart for his people, with my voting card.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

PPP open to making Integrity Commission a constitutional body – Jagdeo

first_imgOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo said that the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) is open to making the Integrity Commission a constitutional body.Opposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoOver the past months, the Commission has complained that the unavailability of resources, particularly financial, has hampered its ability to carry out its mandate effectively.In fact, Chairman Kumar Duraisami has previously contended that it was time that the Commission be given financial independence by making it a constitutional body. This was after the Commission had requested supplementary funding from the Finance Ministry, but was denied same.Integrity Commission office in CampbellvillePreviously, when asked about granting constitutional status to the Integrity Commission, both Alliance For Change (AFC) Leader Khemraj Ramjattan and Director General Joseph Harmon explained that any such move would have to be made until after the coalition Government comes out of its current interim status.But Jagdeo, at his press conference last week, posited that making the Commission a constitutional body did not solve the important issue of Government compliance.“We’re open to any idea that will strengthen the Integrity Commission; however, this is just to get a nice-sounding word or phrase to avoid scrutiny of the real issue and the real issue is their non-compliance with the Integrity Commission … What you have to do is submit your declarations to the Integrity Commission. Submit it, let’s start with that. File your declarations. They’re not doing that and they wanna make it a constitutional body,” he asserted.Duraisami had recently disclosed that despite a two-month extension to the June 30 deadline, less than half of the declaration forms that were sent out were filled out and returned. He noted that some 1137 forms were distributed, but only 396 were received after the August 31 deadline.Among the defaulters were a majority of the Members of Parliament from both the Government and Opposition.Back in May, the Commission had flagged some 716 public officials for failing to make their declarations including President David Granger and some members of his Cabinet.In fact, at a press conference last month, AFC executives Ramjattan and Telecommunications Minister Cathy Hughes admitted to not filing their declarations even after the extended deadline had long passed.Minister Hughes told reporters on September 20 that she had only received the necessary documentation the day before and was going to file it later in the day while Ramjattan said he was yet to submit declarations for 2019, but would have done so up to the end of 2018.According to the Integrity Commission Act, all public officers in high office are required to file declarations of their assets as well as those held by their spouses and children. The law states that any public officer who fails to comply with the Commission is liable upon summary conviction, to a fine of $25,000 and imprisonment for a period of not less than six months or more than one year.Meanwhile, in its latest Article IV Consultation in Guyana, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has encouraged local authorities to make asset declarations to the Integrity Commission public. It noted too that while the re-establishment of the Integrity Commission has reinvigorated compliance, it should develop the methodology for verification.The Commission’s Chairman had previously lamented that efforts to hire investigators to verify declarations filed as well as Attorneys to prosecute defaulters were hindered by its financial woes.However, Jagdeo told reporters last week that while he was open to elevating the constitutional status of the Commission, he believes that the IMF ‘is just talks’.According to the Opposition Leader, during a previous interaction with the IMF team, led by Arnold McIntyre, he had spoken about Government’s non-compliance with the Commission and his Party’s efforts to have declarations made public but none of this was reflected in its report.The Opposition had tabled a motion in the National Assembly, but the coalition voted against the public knowing what each parliamentarian owned/owns as part of safeguarding the assets that belong to current Government Ministers.“Why is [McIntyre] calling now for it to be made public. I supported this. I pointed out to him the motion that we had in Parliament to make public our declarations for the past 10 years. He knows all about this. Mr McIntyre is talking all the time and then they do a cover-up report to the Board of the IMF,” Jagdeo said.“None of the issues we talked about: the massive corruption that haemorrhages public revenue and also where you have massive corruption in public expenditure. They didn’t put in the report about the lack of accountability, the violation of the procurement laws, the Integrity Commission – a whole range of things we spoke about and none of that gets reflected in the report. It’s a waste of time for us to meet with them,” Jagdeo contended.last_img read more

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: IS SUGAR EVIL?

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: In every movie, there is always a villain.It doesn’t matter whether it is a kids’ movie, a comedy, thriller or horror.There is always a ‘heel’; someone who we can push the blame onto; someone who, when they finally get their ‘comeuppance’ in the end, we can all sleep safe at night knowing that all is right with the world. Nutrition is no different.Over the past few decades we have always wanted a bad guy, someone who we can blame when things don’t go our way.This can be either with our weight, or with our diet.If we take a look back over the last 40 years or so, we can see a trend of blame that was attached to different food groups.Fat was the first culprit, then there was carbs, now we have sugar. The media is to blame for the majority of the scaremongering that goes on with nutritional ostracising.After all, they know a sensational headline when they see one, and they want to sell their story, so if they make the story completely over the top, people will buy it, share it and believe it.This is why there is so much misinformation regarding nutrition nowadays.Nowadays, we can add social media into this.We have not only lay-people sharing elaborate headlines, but nutritionists and trainers sharing and believing this information also.It seems that if it is on social media, it has to be taken as truth. If it comes in the form of a ‘meme’, then it is absolute gospel.But this simply is not the case.So;Is Sugar Evil?Simply put, No!Of course saying a blanket ‘No’ to that question is a simplistic as saying a blanket ‘Yes’ as an answer.When you are discussing nutrition, there isn’t ever a simple yes or no answer, because there is never a single scenario when it comes to the question. When we look at sugar as a culprit to weight gain, we cannot just point the finger and say, sugar is to blame.Sugar’s effect on your body composition will depend on whether you know how many calories you consume each day, how much protein, carbohydrates and fat you consume each day and if you meet these requirements.If the answer is yes and you are in a calorie deficit, then I can guarantee that weight loss will come.If you don’t know and you are just freestyling your diet, as in eating whatever you like with no knowledge of what amounts you are consuming, then how can you blame one specific food group?You cannot.This is not to say that sugar shouldn’t be restricted in your diet, for the majority of us it should.But this is because we eat a diet that consists of processed foods that are highly palatable, meaning they taste great because they have added sugars to them, (which don’t provide much satiety, meaning you don’t feel satisfied after eating them), which means you will eat more of them.So sugar is to blame for weight gain, yes.Again, no, it isn’t.When we look at the foods that are being consumed and that people tend to over eat, the top ten foods that came out on top were;Chocolate, ice cream, chips, pizza, cookies, crisps, cake, buttered popcorn, burgers, muffins.What do all these foods have in common?• They have large amounts of Carbs and Fat in them.• Which means they have a large amount of calories in them.• Which means if you eat large amounts of them, you will gain weight.So you simply cannot blame sugar for these foods being to blame for your weight gain.These foods are what people would claim to be addicted to, not simply sugar.Whenever someone has a craving for something sweet, they don’t sit down with a bowl of sugar to feed their ‘fix’, they go to these type of hyper palatable foods listed above.Foods with sugar and fat content, not just sugar.But what about sugar’s effect on our blood sugar?If we look at where sugar lands on the GI scale it has a GI of 68 per tablespoonful, this is actually classed as moderate.Sugar is 50% fructose and 50% glucose, the 50% fructose is why the effects on blood sugar is moderate instead of high.If we look at whole wheat bread on the GI scale, it actually has a higher level of 71 which is classed as high on the GI scale.A banana has a GI of 62 and honey, which is quite often touted as a better option for you than sugar, has a GI of 61 and the same glycaemic load as sugar of 12.This is the same on the Insulin index.We have been eating sugar for as long as we have been evolving. Our main source of this used to come from fruit in the form of fructose.So what is the take home message here?Sugar is not ‘toxic’ and we are able to process it just fine providing we are not over consuming it through highly processed foods or you have a food intolerance or an auto immune disease.Sugar is neither ‘good’ nor is it ‘bad’.It doesn’t provide satiety so you should be careful with the amounts you eat.If your diet is balanced and the majority of your food is unprocessed whole foods then some ‘junk’ foods won’t have much effect on your health overall.#TrainSmartFor more information on my New Parent Fitness Plan Class, contact me through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118?ref=hl* Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe FitnessEMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: IS SUGAR EVIL? was last modified: September 13th, 2015 by John2Share 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:emmet rusheEVILsugarlast_img read more
