…identitySeems there was a symposium at the Convention Centre to answer the question, “Who are we?” Now this had to’ve been a very high powered session since the five presenters mentioned in one report were all “Doctors”. Not medical doctors since they weren’t discussing “HOW are we”. Most likely doctors in the various “social sciences” – psychology, anthropology, sociology etc… that specialise in matters of identity and such like.Another clue the symposium was high octane was the newly-installed Vice Chancellor of UG, Ivelaw Griffith vouchsafing that the panellists would be “interrogating old questions”. Now the moment you hear about “interrogating” anything and the words don’t come from the mouth of Police squeezing confessions from unwary suspects, it’s a dead giveaway you’re dealing with heavy intellectual hitters.The final confirmation of grey matter in abundance was when your trusty Eyewitness couldn’t get a report on what was actually said from the press reports that’re his daily manna. Presumably the reporters from the various media groups are still digesting the nuggets of wisdom – and gold, as we all should know being Guyanese, is a VERY HEAVY metal.Anyhow, your Eyewitness has already been bombarded for over 50 years – there, you now know! – with a very definitive answer to the question as to “who are we”. Namely the national motto we adopted at independence that allows no ambiguity – we are “One People, One Nation…with one destiny”. That threw out the old notion we used to run around with, that we were “the land of six peoples”. No baby! We were now one people.It was like one day you’re living in sin – drinking, carousing and generally carrying on – and the next day you’re baptised. You are now saved and the old you has been exorcised forever. And if we’re one people, we have to be one “nation”, don’t we? So what exactly did these eggheads over at the Arthur Chung Convention Centre “interrogate”?The fact of the matter is this Eyewitness thinks Government should just get the heck out of the business of “interrogating” who we are. The moment Government gets involved is the moment when inevitably someone’s gonna cry “FOUL”!!! Pointing out that one group or another’s getting the inside track to the funding from the Government.“Who we are?” is a question best answered by “we the people”…and since the Government’s always run by ONE section of the “people”, COMPARISONS WILL INEVITABLY ARISE. That some folks might be better funded and better equipped to influence the answer to the question, must be countered from within the resources of the “others”.State “help” doesn’t really help – just infantilises.….digital booksOne letter writer took objection to a telephone company exulting in 4G freedom and splashing over some billboard, “Goodbye Library… Hello World!”. Point the company was making, of course, was we can now download books off the internet so fast, we might as well have the world’s library at our fingertips. And we, therefore, don’t need to sidle into stuffy libraries with musty “paper” books.Evidently, the writer recently chanced into the New York Public Library and found it chock full of all sorts of bibliophiles. And so, ipso facto, the day of paper books isn’t over! If he’d ambled over from the library at 42nd Street over to Central Park at 59th Street, he’d have seen bigger worthies getting into the horse buggies there. But that doesn’t mean the car industry is dead…is it? The bottom line is there’ll always be innovations in every area of life.And we have to just adapt if it pushes the envelope in a positive direction.…roadworksYour Eyewitness wants to know why Carifesta Ave’s being widened and given a median. It certainly can’t be because of the high traffic density…enough vehicles just can’t get to it.Is it because they’re planning more SOCU high-speed chases? read more
The Police have recovered the body of 52-year-old Kenneth Joseph, who disappeared into the Pomeroon River following a river mishap.

IT’S understandable that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa would not want to talk anymore about his affair with reporter Mirthala Salinas. It’s also understandable that he would try to dodge questions on the subject. But it’s unreasonable for the mayor to think he can call a press conference and then not get asked about it. And it’s inappropriate for Villaraigosa to use city police personnel as his own personal-scrutiny buffer, as he tried last week. When reporters at a press conference at the Port of Los Angeles started asking questions about you-know-who, a group or port officers tried to cordon them off. Since when is it against the law to ask the mayor uncomfortable questions? Worse yet, when one of the reporters got too close, a cop shoved her into a steel container. Given fresh memories of the May Day melee, Villaraigosa hardly can afford to have police officers beating up on reporters – again. It’s not only bad P.R.; it could also lead to an expensive lawsuit. If the mayor wants to avoid the media, he ought to go into hiding, like Rocky Delgadillo. It’s not the job of the police to protect him from unwanted questions. read more
1 Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney claims the club are targeting the Premier League title next season.A difficult first season of the Louis van Gaal era ended with a somewhat underwhelming 0-0 draw at Hull on Sunday.Despite a disappointing run of one win in their final six games, United achieved their aim of Champions League qualification – but Rooney is hungry for so much more.The United skipper is used to challenging for titles and that is what he wants to be doing next season.Van Gaal’s team finished 17 points behind this year’s winners Chelsea, but Rooney insists the gap between the two teams is capable of being bridged, so long as the club make the right moves in the transfer market.“I believe we are (close),” the United captain told Sky Sports.“You take the first 10 games and I think we had 13 points.“When you consider from after that amount of games to where we’ve finished, we’ve probably got as many points after that as anyone else.“I think we’re close, there’s no doubt about it. You can see in our performances, we’re outplaying teams, dominating possession, and it’s just that final thing of taking our chances.“In the (defeat at) Chelsea, if I had scored that chance with my left foot then it could have been a completely different game and might have put them under a bit of pressure – it might have been a lot closer than it’s finished.“As a group of players, myself and the manager – we all believe we’re close and I’m sure with a player or two in the summer we’ll have a good chance of going for the title.”A quarter-final exit to Arsenal in the FA Cup – the one trophy he is yet to win – remains a sore point for Rooney.But given the turbulent times at Old Trafford over the last two years, Rooney is reasonably satisfied with the season as a whole.“There was a change of manager, coaches, and a lot of new players coming in – so realistically we knew it was going to be a tough ask for us to go and win the Premier League,” the striker added.“The least we wanted was a top-four finish because, after last season, for this football club it would’ve been a disaster if we didn’t make the top four.“It would have been nice to win some silverware – that’s why the Arsenal defeat in the cup was so disappointing – but in terms of the Premier League the most vital thing for us was getting in the top four.” Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney read more

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: John Jackson greets a Christmas that he wasn’t sure he’d see“This is our last opportunity for higher-end anchors,” businesswoman Sandra Paez said. “We want Macy’s and the Cheesecake Factory. We all go to L.A. for these things. We all go to Santa Clarita for these things. We need to think high-end.” City officials and RTKL representatives said common themes emerging from their discussions with residents include a desire for better shopping and dining, a unified development, and a casual, pedestrian experience. “There is a re-emergence of commercial centers as more than places to shop,” said Brian Ludicke, Lancaster’s community development director. “They are destinations, places for people to gather.” Among those who have provided input to the city are Dan and Rhonda Pratt. The couple said the city needs to focus on upscale stores and not on big-box retailers. “We need new, we need better,” Rhonda Pratt said. “Bringing in another Target would be completely useless.” LANCASTER – Lancaster residents have a message for the city on a proposed shopping center – think upscale or don’t bother. Lancaster is working with consultant RTKL Associates to lay the groundwork for a commercial center officials hope will be a unique shopping environment and a social gathering spot. The city and the consultant are working to produce an environmental impact report and a planning guideline for about 150 acres bounded roughly by Avenues K-8 and L and by Fifth and 10th streets west. To prepare the documents, the city has been soliciting public opinions. One of the recurring themes in those opinions is a desire for upscale shopping. Dan Pratt said he and his wife often shop out of the area because they don’t feel secure at the shopping centers in the Antelope Valley. “This is our last chance to have something we can be proud of, a place where we can go and shop with our families,” he said. City officials and the consultant have been showing residents design concept options to see what kinds of elements people want. The options range in retail space from 50to 75acres, covering anywhere from about 600,000 to 800,000 square feet of floor space. The options include anywhere from 15to 35acres of what officials call “flex space,” areas that could be used for office space, additional retail or some other use. “These options are either/or,” said Kurt Nagle of RTKL. “There is a certain amount of flexibility with these options.” The first layout option is organized in a north-south manner with a town square in the center and anchor stores – larger, major retail stores – at either end. The commercial portion of the development, totaling about 600,000 square feet, would be located on the western side of the site. The second layout option, and the one preferred by the city staff at this point, is referred to as a “pinwheel organization” with a town square focus. The layout accommodates both pedestrian and auto-oriented elements that emanate outward from a central town square. The auto-oriented traffic would be located to the south and an east-west “main street” would run from either end of the town square. That layout would accommodate 715,000 square feet of floor area and expands the commercial development farther to the east than the first option. A variation of that option calls for a big-box store, about 180,000 square feet, on the southern end of the site that would be geared more toward shoppers in cars. The variation includes a string of pedestrian-oriented stores going east to west across the site. Another option has a diagonal organization and a pedestrian mall focus. Anchor stores would be located on the edges of the commercial center and would typically have dual orientation – a focus on auto traffic on one side and a pedestrian orientation toward the center. That layout resembles, on a smaller scale, the Victoria Gardens project in Rancho Cucamonga. The commercial footage would be 670,000 square feet. The fourth layout option resembles the Valencia Town Center mall in Santa Clarita. It has an east-west, serpentine main street layout. Anchor stores would be oriented toward 10th Street West. That layout could accommodate 715,000 square feet of floor area. A variation of that option includes a central plaza as a gathering area. Vice Mayor Ed Sileo said he likes elements of each of the plans. “The more commercial space and the more walkability, the more I like it,” Sileo said. “It has to have a pedestrian component to it or it’ll just be another shopping center.” Sileo said he thinks the site’s location, adjacent to the Antelope Valley Freeway, City Park and transit routes and a park-and-ride lot will make it attractive for upper-end stores. “If we don’t shoot for the highest quality we can, then we have failed,” Sileo said. Plans call for having a preferred option selected in January. A meeting to scope out issues to be addressed in the environmental impact report would also be held that month. Officials said they want to have a final environmental document and the specific plan ready for consideration by the planning commission in mid-July followed by a decision by the City Council in August.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli will miss the start of the new season with a hamstring injury.The England international sustained the problem in training and boss Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed he will not be fit for the Premier League opener against Aston Villa next Saturday.It will come as a big blow to the 23-year-old, who was beset by hamstring problems last season and Pochettino admits it is a concern. 2 The Argentine watched his side lose to Inter Milan on penalties 2 The Argentine, who saw his side conclude their pre-season campaign with a 1-1 draw against Inter Milan, said: “I don’t believe he’s going to be ready for the start of the season.“It’s the same area. Yes, of course we are worried. He’s still so young. Just 23-years-old and many, many hamstring problems in the last few years.“It’s to pay attention to what is going on in his body, but we are here to try to help him. Think (it is a) minor injury. Only a few weeks before he can be available again and be with the group.”With less than a week until the transfer window shuts, Tanguy Ndombele remains the only signing that will impact the first team this summer and Pochettino expressed his frustration last week when he appeared to distance himself from the club’s dealings. Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed Dele Alli will miss the start of the season Getty Images – Getty Tony Cascarino thinks Mauricio Pochettino won’t last the season at TottenhamSpurs fans got their first look at new record signing Ndombele, though the Frenchman did not have a massive impact, beyond an exciting dart into the penalty in the first half.Pochettino has warned that the midfielder will need time to get used to English football.“For him it’s difficult,” he said. “We cannot expect too much. We need to accept he needs time to adapt to first a new culture, a new country, new habits.“Of course it’s only him who arrived to the club and that makes it more difficult. When a few are new they can help each other but it’s only him.“We need to give him time but I am happy in the way he is adapting. He is open to improve and learn but needs time to see the best version of him.” Getty Images – Getty Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:37Loaded: 10.21%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:37 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

A retail theft ring responsible for stealing and reselling tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of merchandise in Volusia and Seminole counties’ stores was dismantled Tuesday after a multi-agency investigation, authorities said.
Officials arrested Constantine “Mike” Joseph, 53, and Sherry Laizer, 48, on accusations that they sold about $75,000 in stolen merchandise between January and March.
Laurie Ashley, Joseph’s girlfriend, called deputies and said she was upset that he’d taken advantage of her and she wanted to talk about his illegal racket. She said he enlisted boosters to steal items from retail stores, bought the items and resold them in his eBay store.
Ashley said the stolen items included FitBit fitness trackers, perfume and cologne, printer ink cartridges, electric toothbrushes, thumb drives, over-the-counter medications and various health and beauty products.Volusia County deputies determined that the Volusia Mall JCPenney store lost $45,000 to $50,000 worth of perfume and cologne over the last year. Investigators contacted Joseph’s probation officer, who said he noticed a cabinet of packaged printer ink cartridges when he visited Joseph’s home.
