…of PrezzieYour Eyewitness was intrigued to discover Prezzie had evidently taken that “midnight plane to Georgia” to deliver an address to the PNC group in the “Peach State”. Why did Prezzie have Georgia on his mind? Was it because his unilateralism on placing Patterson in the GECOM Chair had exploded like a rotten sore? Was this trip connected to the PPP’s vigorous reaction in the House? Was a war chest already being created for the great battle of 2020?But Prezzie posed three questions to his audience of ex-pat Guyanese that ironically provided answers to your Eyewitness’ questions. Right off the bat after giving a hagiographical account of the birth of the PNC, Prezzie asked, “You have to ask yourself ‘how the PNC gained office in 1964?’” How indeed?!! Well, it had everything to do with that elephant in the room Prezzie studiously avoids even though he’s a trained historian – the CIA’s campaign to remove the PPP and install the PNC to protect their (the US’s) strategic interests!Your Eyewitness isn’t sure why Prezzie skirts around the issue…the US itself has released the declassified files that are there for anyone with a keyboard (or smartphone) to download. So is Prezzie hinting that once again the PNC has been chosen to protect US interests – this time in oil? Food for thought.The second question Prezzie posed was, “Ask yourself ‘how did the PNC remain in office and what did it do during that year?’” Now that’s simple. The answer, of course, is the British passed the “Emergency Detention Bill”, which saw 15 members of the PPP arrested and detained under the suspension of Habeas Corpus! The PPP became mute since the least resistance would result in being thrown into Sibley Hall at the Mazaruni Prison. The PNC extended this totalitarian law as the “National Security Act”.The third question was “Ask yourself how the PNC (regained office) in 2015 and ask yourself how the PNC would retain office after 2020.” And this brings us to the (fetid) present. The PNC disguised itself as APNU under the fig leaf of the WPA and a number of one-man parties, by promising them Ministries. We know from the treatment of Roopnaraine they got Larwah, but the WPA had come home.APNU, of course, suckered the AFC with the Cummingsburg Accord and they pipped the PPP with their 11% and the random 10,000 who were in the States via US issued visas – and not the “backtrack” at US,000 a pop!And we arrive at (Chief?) Justice Patterson. To “retain office after 2020”, the PNC is following the Burnhamite stride in 1968.Rigging with the connivance of the GECOM Chair!…on travails and travelsThe travails of Nagamootoo are too well known to be regurgitated. Suffice to say, he’s not only been neutralised but effectively neutered. That means no cojones…not even a wind ball! But your Eyewitness just discovered another (sordid) reason why he has accepted his eunuch-like state that impelled him to utter inanities like dubbing protesting Parliamentarians as “domestic terrorists”!!Seems, in addition to his demands for the increased salary, ($1.5M), refurbishing and air conditioning at Main Street, new SUV with outriders, etc, he’s allowed unlimited travel allowances. Last year, he frittered TWENTY MILLION DOLLARS in jetting to foreign destinations – quite a feat for a fella who’s supposed to be in charge of DOMESTIC AFFAIRS!With the Cummingsburg Accord just “a cord” to muzzle Nagamootoo’s mouth, he has nothing to do but twiddle his thumb, utter inanities, cut ribbons and drop symbolic donations to the Salvation Army Christmas Kettle. He might as well fly away!But after clocking in all those frequent flyer miles, what’s left for Foreign Minister Greenidge?
This year, it will be held on the Beatton River just below the Devon facility. WCSS’ Gail O’Neill explains this will give companies experience in more shallow water, which requires different equipment than a deeper river. “We won’t have any boats out there, but most often for shallow [water] it’s a little bit different than on a big river, and hopefully easier to contain.” In previous years the company has used red dyed Canola Oil to simulate the spill, but after concerns from Alberta, it now uses colourful plastic balls. An instructor will be there to train the representatives on how to use the equipment, explaining first on dry land, then in the water. At the end of the day there will be an assessment on the exercise, and members can give feedback and make suggestions for new equipment.- Advertisement – Western Canadian Spill Services offers their equipment at no charge to members; they only have to pay for the trucking. The mandatory exercise is to ensure the companies can handle it on their own, should the need arise. The drill is offered every year, sometimes with different settings, like in a lake or on dry land.
Category 1 Hurricane Henriette was a direct hit in Cabo San Lucas, Baja California on Tuesday afternoon. While there was some flooding, no substantial damage was reported. Eddie Dalmau from Van Wormer Resorts said everything was getting back to normal. “Palmas De Cortez and Playa Del Sol sustained no damage,” Dalmau said. “Electricity and water are expected to be restored this afternoon (Wednesday). All roads are open from San Jose Del Cabo to the East Cape area. The San Jose Del Cabo airport also reopened Wednesday morning. Please be sure to check with your airline for cancellations or delays.” The tropics have been touching Southern California anglers too. Water temperatures are up to 76 degrees in some areas and that warm water is bringing some new visitors to our waters. Bass biting: The three-quarter day Spitfire out of Redondo Sportfishing has been fishing Catalina Island daily and catching a variety of species. “We’ve had really good calico bass fishing,” Spitfire skipper Steven Konrady said. “We have also been catching some really big bonito; 5- to 10-pounders, a few yellowtail, and some perch and other stuff, too.” Albacore fishing out of San Diego continued to produce fair to good results. There continues to be a huge amount of albacore from 60 to 100 miles from San Diego. “We see tons – and I literally mean tons – of albacore jumping out of the water, up chasing bait and putting on a show every day,” said Buzz Brizendine, skipper of the Prowler. “Getting them to bite has been another thing.” The weather has been rough offshore and Brizendine thinks that has put the albacore down. “Starting Thursday, the forecast is for calm seas for the next week. That should get these things biting again.” The albacore remain large with most of the fish in the 25- to 40-pound class. The average catch is from 20 to 40 albacore per boat on overnight trips and more for the boats that fish until dark. The best bites have come late in the day so being on a 1

He is the second colonel to be court-martialed over actions in Iraq. Army Lt. Col. Steven L. Jordan of Fredericksburg, Va., was convicted of abusing detainees at Abu Ghraib prison, said Tom Umberg, a retired Army colonel and former military prosecutor The decision by Lt. Gen. James Mattis to send Chessani to trial mirrored the conclusion an officer reached at his preliminary hearing. Col. Christopher Conlin blasted Chessani for failing to go to the scene of the killings immediately after they occurred, even though he knew 24 “neutrals” were dead. “To not have made every attempt to be on scene as this action developed, or to not have at least reviewed this action in detail … is in itself negligent,” Conlin wrote. SAN DIEGO – The highest-ranking U.S. serviceman to face court-martial related to combat since Vietnam was ordered to trial Friday for failing to investigate the killings of 24 Iraqis, including women and children, in Haditha two years ago. Lt. Col. Jeffrey R. Chessani faces charges of dereliction of duty and violation of a lawful order for allegedly failing to accurately report and investigate the Nov. 19, 2005, incident triggered by a roadside bomb that killed a Marine driver. Chessani was commander of the Camp Pendleton-based 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment that has been the focus of the biggest prosecution of U.S. troops in the Iraq war. One of his men, Lance Cpl. Stephen B. Tatum, was also ordered Friday to face a court-martial on charges of involuntary manslaughter, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault. He is one of four Marines originally charged with murder in the killings. At Chessani’s preliminary hearing in June at Camp Pendleton, several witnesses testified that local Iraqis had complained to Chessani in the days after the killings and that he promised to look into what had happened. But Chessani said he never ordered a formal investigation because he believed the deaths resulted from lawful combat. Chessani’s civilian defense attorney, Brian Rooney, told The Associated Press he was disappointed with the general’s recommendation. “I can tell you this decision by Gen. Mattis today is going to have a negative effect on all officers, including battalion commanders,” he said, adding that it would undermine the trust between commanders and their troops. “Are they going to be able to trust the word of their junior officers, senior enlisted and junior enlisted?” If convicted on all counts, Chessani faces up to three years in prison. Mattis’s decision to send Tatum to court-martial reverses the recommendation of the investigating officer last month, who said the evidence was too weak to prosecute him. Tatum, of Edmond, Okla., shot and killed civilians, but “he did so because of his training and the circumstances he was placed in, not to exact revenge and commit murder,” Lt. Col. Paul Ware wrote. Attorneys for Tatum said they were disappointed Mattis did not follow the recommendation to withdraw and dismiss all charges made by the trial judge who heard all the evidence during the Article 32 investigation. Lance Cpl. “Tatum did not commit any crime, and we will take the fight to the courtroom,” attorneys Jack B. Zimmerman and Kyle R. Sampson said in a written statement. They said by referring the case to courts-martial, “every young Marine and soldier who faces a split-second decision in combat. The success of future infantry combat operations is at stake.” Of four enlisted Marines initially accused in the case, charges have been dropped against Sgt. Sanick Dela Cruz and Lance Cpl.

At the same time, College of the Canyons is applying to the state for funding to have more vocational programs available on campus. Van Hook said it only made sense for community colleges to clear the path for more high school students to attend and take these classes. “If the governor has an initiative for collaborations between community colleges and high school districts to provide work-force education or vocational technical training, it makes no sense not to enable high school students beyond that 5 percent to attend community colleges during the summer,” she said. The second bill wants to change how schools pay for new facilities. Instead of using capital lay funds to buy bricks and mortar to construct new facilities, the bill seeks to allow community colleges to use this money to purchase buildings that have already been constructed whether they’re government or privately owned. The intent is to give more flexibility to community college districts to acquire already constructed buildings, said Deborah Harmon, legislative advocate from McCallum Group, a Sacramento-based lobbying firm. It could apply in places where student enrollment in kindergarten through high school is dropping and school doors are closing. Community colleges could fill these vacant buildings with their students, instead of constructing new buildings from scratch. “Community colleges are expected to educate the great bulk of students between now and about 2013,” Harmon said. “To the extent that we can be smart about how we house and accommodate the great number of students will be to the state’s benefit.” Runner last month introduced legislation that could ask voters to approve $38 billion worth of funding over the next 10 years to construct new schools, from elementary through higher education facilities.

SANTA CLARITA – Two education bills introduced last week could have an effect on California community colleges when it comes to classroom space and high school enrollment. Both bills ask for more – more ways for community colleges to acquire facility space and more high school students taking summer classes in them. “We must ensure that students have better access to courses, and community colleges are given all the tools necessary to acquire adequate classrooms and facilities,” said state Sen. George Runner, R-Lancaster. Runner, whose district covers much of the Santa Clarita Valley, introduced the community college bill package to the state Legislature on Thursday. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Current education code says that no more than 5 percent of summer courses at community colleges can be filled with juniors and seniors from most comprehensive high schools. This doesn’t apply to students at middle college high schools, such as Academy of the Canyons at College of the Canyons in Valencia, or at early college high schools. Advocates want to change the restriction, so more students can take vocational classes and other courses that are transferable to the California State University and University of California systems during the summer. The law first came into effect during the 1980s when smaller community colleges found themselves flooded with teenagers seeking calculus, computer and physics courses that their tiny high schools didn’t offer. Dianne Van Hook, president of College of the Canyons, said the cap discriminates against students at comprehensive high schools, because only 5 percent of them can attend classes during the summer in comparison to 100 percent at Academy of the Canyons. College of the Canyons has sponsored this bill. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has proposed about $20 million in this year’s budget for collaborations between community colleges and high school districts for vocational education and has proposed another $30 million for next year.

10 November 2011 A group of Chinese business journalists are currently touring Africa to investigate investment opportunities, share lessons from existing Chinese businesses on the continent and strengthen the sense of mutual understanding between African and Asian cultures. Brand South Africa is hosting the group during its final leg of the tour, following visits to Ethiopia, Chad, Algeria, Zambia and Kenya. The China Entrepreneur reporters’ findings will be published in their magazine’s African Focus issue at the end of November 2011. The fortnightly publication boasts a circulation figure of 150 000 and is the Chinese equivalent of Fortune – according to Olive Hou, the magazine’s international relations manager. “South Africa is the last stop on our tour to see what strategies these countries have in place to foster trade with China and if there are investment opportunities for China’s entrepreneurs in those countries,” Hou said. Today China is South Africa’s biggest trading partner, with the total value of trade between the two nations nearing US$16-billion (R125-billion) in 2010.Enabling foreign investment Tshepo Nkosi, Brand South Africa’s communications manager, said: “We have structured the tour so that the group will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the different industries in South Africa and the opportunities that exist within those sectors. “After this tour, the group will have been shown how our trade and investment policy acts as an enabler to foreign investment.” And with South Africa’s recent inclusion in the BRIC economic bloc of Brazil, Russia, India and China, the tour comes at an opportune time. “So far we have observed a diversity of Chinese business interests in Africa, including construction projects in Kenya and Algeria, mining along Zambia’s copper belt and telecoms in South Africa – to name a few. Either directly or indirectly these are a boost to local economies,” Hou said. The range of Chinese investments in Kenya was particularly interesting for the team. “There we discovered a plastics-manufacturing firm, and vegetable and poultry concerns run by Chinese. We even discovered a Chinese-owned digital satellite pay-TV group which, in addition to Kenya, operates in Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi.”Respect for Chinese working culture Hou says the tour has helped develop a sense of respect for Chinese working culture. “We want there to be a better understanding of China’s position in Africa and this can be brought about by healthy media coverage. Sometimes there is negative publicity because people aren’t seeing the bigger picture.” Hou adds that the tour will help the Chinese journalists put together a balanced report on African trade opportunities. “We want our Africa report to be neutral and to cover all experiences and challenges we’ve found in Africa. We don’t want to create propaganda. The report needs to be constructive and show the experiences of people who are having success working cross-culturally. “There must also be advice on how to overcome challenges such as the language barrier and difficulties with local legal systems. China has vast experience in industrial development, which it can bring to Africa.”Policies beneficial to Chinese investment The journalists visited the National Empowerment Fund (NEF) in Sandton, Johannesburg, to learn more about local policies which can help boost Chinese investment. The NEF was established in 1998 as a way to promote and facilitate black economic participation in the newly democratic South Africa. Some years later South Africans of Chinese descent were given full benefits in terms of the country’s employment equity and black economic empowerment (BEE) policies to correct exclusions during apartheid rule. This means that South African Chinese are now eligible to be empowered under BEE, which the NEF supports. This empowerment strategy could be seen as advantageous to China-based investors who have ties with South Africans of Chinese descent. Zwelibanzi Sapula, head of strategic funds at the NEF, said: “Although we do not necessarily go out and look for Chinese investment, we have appointed a financial service provider which shows potential foreign investors all our projects and how they could benefit from being involved.” Sapula added that there are three ways foreign investors can become involved in a project: at a funding level, project level or both. At the funding level, the investor will only make monetary contributions, while at project level the investor will play a more active role in the investment, such as bringing in the technology needed to make the project successful. Sapula cited an NEF-backed project, which involves using Chinese technology to convert discarded tyres into consumable oils. According to the NEF, Chinese involvement at both funding and project levels could have helped speed up implementation as there was a lack of interest from financiers.Entrepreneurial lessons from Sasol During their time in Johannesburg the journalists also visited fuel manufacturer Sasol’s headquarters in the suburb of Rosebank, where they were shown how innovative business models can boost entrepreneurship. One of the examples is the ChemCity initiative, which aims to make it easier for small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) to become established in the chemical, energy and related industries. Phase one of the ChemCity Eco-Industrial Park in Sasolburg offers entrepreneurs a space to construct environment-friendly premises with 24-hour security and exemption from paying rates and taxes until 31 December 2018. It also offers competitive rates for the renting or selling of sites. Since July 2004 the ChemCity initiative has helped establish 262 SMMEs and create 3 000 jobs. Hou said: “I see how the South African chemical energy sector is thriving and there are many viable opportunities for Chinese investors in this sector.” First published by MediaClubSouthAfrica.com – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service.
