The future is bright for me. I have a tough opposition in front of me this coming April 20.

Investigation reveals high mercury levels in Kaituma River

Posted on by

first_img…aquatic species affectedFive months after water supply was sourced from alternative means for affected residents, an investigation into mercury contamination of the Kaituma River, North West District has confirmed the preliminary test that the mercury levels were too high for consumption. In the final report submitted by Environmental Officer, Tamara Gilhuys, it was recommended that complaint officers ensure sample points at and near pump station are included in their routine water quality monitoring. The report further outlined that the environmental division should “lead investigations to ascertain the status of rivers or creeks within mining districts” where Guyana Water Inc pump stations are located and where contamination from mining operations poses an imminent threat to the community.Eleven river water samples were submitted but only 10 were analysed due to leakage of Sample ID ‘10’ during shipment by Kaizen Environmental Services Inc. In the analysis, it was found that at all sample points, the concentrations were within the World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines.Despite the generally low readings, it was however found that in Sample 4 at 125m upstream Pump Creek, there was 0.000219 mg/L of mercury. Meanwhile, the lowest concentration of 0.000016 mg/L was found in Sample 2 which was located on the Kaituma Canal downstream section of Pump Creek. The WHO guideline is 0.006 mg/L. It was explained that mercury is easily transported to bed sediments from the water column due to its high affinity for organic ligands.The investigation revealed a variety of organisms live in or come into contact with bed sediments and therefore the sediments act as an important route of exposure to aquatic organisms which in turn has implications for human health. “Sediment mercury, therefore, is an indicator of the recreational safety and ecological health of a water source as it relates to wildlife and human health,” the reported observed.The report stated that the drinking water standard for arsenic is 0.010 mg/L as outlined by WHO and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs).“The USEPA MCLs reflect the level at which no adverse health effects are likely to occur within a margin of safety and are set as close as possible to health goals considering cost, benefits and the ability of public water systems to detect and remove contaminants using suitable treatment technologies,” the section of the document noted.With respect to cadmium, the report found that all samples were found to be below the limits. The Port Kaituma survey also showed that the samples were within the WHO guidelines for lead which is 0.01 mg/L. The results of five samples sent for further analysis at ActLabs are expected to be available on September 30.It was in July that GWI’s Managing Director, Dr Richard Van West-Charles told reporters that mercury levels of 0.016mg/L was shown which was higher that WHO standard of 0.006mg/L . It was on July 26, 2018, that the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission dispatched a joint team that included the Environmental Protection Agency to investigate the matter.last_img read more

Starlets face AWCON uncertainty over funds

Posted on by

first_imgMwendwa says the Sports Ministry said it cannot afford the Sh43mn budget presented to it and now, FKF’s only hope lies with the operationalization of the National Sports Fund.“We had a meeting at the ministry yesterday (Monday) where we presented this budget and we were told they don’t have that kind of money. Our hope now is on the Sports Fund because we have been made to understand there is some money for the Sports Fund that is yet to be disbursed,” Mwendwa said at a press briefing Tuesday morning at the Federation’s offices.He added; “I am making an appeal to those responsible in Parliament to finish up the processes they are finishing up so that we can have these funds available to us. Sports should be getting 35pc of the fund and this will go a long way in helping us.”Football Kenya Federation president Nick Mwendwa addressing the press during a briefing at the Federation’s offices on October 23, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaThere is currently a push and shove between the Sports and Finance Ministries with Treasury attempting to create a parallel fund to the Sports Fund which will basically do away with the latter which has been entrenched in the Sports Act of 2013.On Tuesday, National Assembly Finance and Planning Committee said it will summon the National Treasury and the Ministry of Sports to appear before it to clear the air over the status of the Sports Fund.The Fund which was established as a state corporation under the Sport Act, is mandated to raise funds through sports lottery, investments and any other means and disburse the funds for the development of sports and recreation.While appearing before the Committee, Treasury Cabinet Administrative Secretary Nelson Gaichuhie admitted they diverted Sh3.4 billion which been collected between July 2017 and December 2018 to Consolidated Fund after it emerged that the Sports Fund was not properly constituted.This is however in contrast with what Sports Principle Secretary Kirimi Kaberia informed the same committee last week, saying the Fund was operational.Deputy President William Ruto listens to Football Kenya Federation boss Nick Mwendwa as Sports PS Kirimi Kaberia and Sports Kenya Chairman Fred Muteti listen in at the Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani on October 12, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluWhilst visiting national football team Harambee Stars before their game against Ethiopia last week, Deputy President William Ruto promised that the Fund would soon be operationalized, but this has now seemingly blown away with the wind, if the Treasury CAS’s words are indeed true.Parliament is making efforts to reclaim the Sports Fund and stop Treasury’s bid to create a parallel fund managed by them.The Committee on Delegated Legislation chaired by Uasin Gishu Women Rep Gladys Shollei recommended for the annulling of the regulations citing that it was formulated without the participation of stakeholders as is required by the Statutory Instruments Act.This is now what the sports fraternity is hoping will go through to enable the Sports Ministry fund national team activities directly from the monies collected by the 15pc remittance from gaming firms and a further 2pc from telecom companies.Just recently, the Kenya Rugby Union was calling for help to enable the national 15s team travel to France for the World Cup qualification Repechage tournament and even had a paybill number asking for well-wishers to donate towards the course.Harambee Starlets players Mwanahalima Adam and Sheryl Angachi celebrate with scorer Teresa Engesha during their African Women’s Cup of Nations qualifier against Equatorial Guinea at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on June 6, 2018.

What can we do? Even the sponsors we are talking to are saying they are waiting to know what the Sports Fund will do so that they can come in,” Mwendwa noted.The Federation is now faced with a huge financial headache if the Ministry does not divulge finances as they are faced with a packed calendar.President Uhuru Kenyatta shares a joke with Football Kenya Federation boss Nick Mwendwa during the FIFA World Cup trophy hosting ceremony at State House on February 26, 2018- PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaThe national men’s team is supposed to play Sierra Leone in a 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier next month, then play Ghana in March next year in Accra. Three points off those two games will guarantee Kenya a place in next year’s AFCON, meaning more funds.The Federation has also entered the Under-23 team to the qualifiers for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo Japan and will play Morocco in the first round qualifiers next month.Overall, the Federation says it has a budget of almost Sh500mn that will cover all teams till the African Cup of Nations next year.“I am calling on the people responsible in Parliament to move quickly and get us the Fund going. If it is operationalized we won’t have problems taking the team to AFCON or qualifying for the Olympics. I want to make this appeal because now it’s becoming serious. Every time we go into camp, we go into debt,” Mwendwa pleaded.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Harambee Starlets players line up before their African Women’s Cup of Nations qualifier against Equatorial Guinea at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on June 6, 2018.

Ronaldo returns to training ahead of Man City clash, Benzema still a doubt

Posted on by

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo has returned to first-team Real Madrid training ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Manchester City.The Portuguese superstar completed a session on Monday as he stepped up his bid to be fit for the crucial Bernabeu clash.Ronaldo has missed Real’s last two games with a groin strain, sitting out of last week’s goalless draw at the Etihad Stadium and also Saturday’s 1-0 La Liga win at Real Sociedad.However, the forward was back in training on Sunday, playing with team-mates at first before working individually for the remainder of the session.And he was able to step on and take a full part in Monday’s training, the Spanish giants reported on their website.While the news about Ronaldo looks promising for Madrid, it is less clear whether his fellow forward Karim Benzema will be able to feature against City.The France international was replaced at half-time in the first leg against City with a hamstring problem and he was limited to running apart from the rest of the group on Monday.

Watch: Hairdressers forced to use watering cans during Falcarragh water outage

Posted on by

first_imgA local hairdressing salon in Falcarragh has been forced to take alternative measures during another water outage.Roisin Gallagher and her team at Roisin’s Beauty Bar faced another day of bookings without a water supply this Friday morning.But, with over twenty outages so far this year, Roisin says she has no other option but to keep the doors open. Instead of taps, she keeps water stored and heats it in a kettle for hair rinses. Then she has to pour the water over her customers’ hair with a watering can.“The water has been out nearly every week this summer. The watering can looks really unprofessional but we just can’t afford to close anymore,” Roisin told Donegal Daily.“We were fully booked today and we are busy with weddings tomorrow. I’m afraid the water will be off again then, because it sometimes stays off two days in a row. “The water came back on today after 2pm. But when it does come back the water is pure black for 20 minutes after.“Before this we had to turn people away when the water was off and close the salon.“Now we’ve been buying loads of water, filling kettles and warming it up. We get the temperature right before we can pour it at the sinks,” she said.Homes and businesses in Falcarragh and surrounding areas have been struggling with regular water outages this year.Irish Water has said the issue is caused by two sections of water pipes that are prone to frequent bursts which need replacing. The existing pipework is asbestos concrete, a common pipe material used in the 1980s which bursts frequently as the pipes reach the end of their life cycle.The water supply was disrupted this Friday morning due to essential works by Irish Water. Roisin says that the local businesses now have a text alert to notify when the water will be off, but they come too late for her salon, which opens at 9am. Her staff have arrived by this time. Two hairdressers and a beautician are employed at Roisin’s Beauty Bar.Roisin’s Beauty Bar opened in March 2018Roisin says her customers have been mostly understanding about the team’s unusual measures.“We can’t even make tea or coffee for the customers. The locals don’t have their own water so they come to us, they are understanding. But a few times we have had holidaymakers who are not happy with how we have to do things. We just try and make them understand that it’s not our fault,” Roisin said.Irish Water currently plans to commence the construction of water mains improvements in Falcarragh this Autumn. After a busy summer, Roisin says every day is a struggle until a solution is found: “We are really struggling at the moment. It’s really hard to keep going, the summer has been so hard. We’ve been so busy and this is just another problem on top of it all.”Watch: Hairdressers forced to use watering cans during Falcarragh water outage was last modified: August 1st, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:FalcarraghIrish Waterroisin gallagherwaterlast_img read more
