Large quantity of sugar missing from Uitvlugt Sugar Estate

first_img– senior manager implicatedA large quantity of sugar that was supposed to have been packaged and shipped out of the Uitvlugt Sugar Estate/Factory, West Coast Demerara has reportedly gone missing, and one of the senior managers attached to the estate may soon be sent packing.A source close to the sugar industry told Guyana Times that this news came to light recently when the first crop for 2019 ended and an audit was conducted to determine the performance of the workers and the output of that estate and factory.“I heard that there is a racket going on there, and was advised that a certain manager was fingered and someone told me he requested early retirement. They (Uitvlugt Sugar Estate) were not accounting for the right amount of sugar, and had been declaring less,” the source stated.Uitvlugt Sugar EstateThis newspaper was told that 55lb bags of sugar were being documented as 100lb bags and sent out of the facility, and this means that the customers who would have purchased those bags were actually robbed. Guyana Times understands that the missing sugar could amount to 3000 pounds.“When they did an audit, molasses-to-sugar ratio — there is a way to calculate it, a scientific way to calculate — they found that they have more molasses. There is a ratio: for every unit of sugar, there should be some molasses,” this newspaper was told.According to the source, employees of the sugar estate related that they had been told to “throw away” the excess molasses, so that no traces of the act could be found because the excess molases would have revealed an inconsistency in the sugar on hand and the actual production. Attempts on Thursday to contact the manager and senior officials attached to the sugar estate, as well as GuySuCo management for a comment on the matter, have proved futile.In December last, the Uitvlugt Sugar Estate, along with those at Albion and Blairmont, had achieved in excess of their target production for the year 2018. This led to a number of qualified employees receiving bonuses for last year as a reward for their performances.The workers, along with the management teams at the three locations, were urged to continue along this path, but with declarations of lower output at the Uitvlugt Sugar Estate thus far for 2019, this means that the workers who would have benefited from weekly incentives during that period would not have received them.last_img read more

But Chapjian said building only two tennis courts at the sports complex would cost $1.1 million, partly because the project would require a retaining wall. Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304 GLENDALE – The tennis courts at Central Park have fought off City Hall’s match point, but only temporarily. The four courts were set to close this week to prepare for their demolition as part of a $10.5 million project to rebuild and expand the nearby Adult Recreation Center. But now they’ll stay open until at least mid-June, city officials said Monday. Members of the Glendale Central Tennis Club and other tennis players argued that the courts should be kept open as long as possible, since actual demolition wasn’t scheduled to begin immediately. The city needs $2.8 million in county money to go ahead with the ARC project. After hearing from the players, the city talked to the county, which allowed the park’s four courts at Colorado and Louise streets to stay open until mid-June, officials said. last_img read more

Paul Scholes has his say on Manchester United’s Premier League title chances

first_img 3 3 3 Luke Shaw scored the winner against Leicester Scholes believes United did not do enough in the transfer market this summer and told the Daily Mirror: “When you look at Manchester City, possibly Liverpool, I don’t think they [United] have the quality of those two teams at the minute.“I just don’t see United getting closer to City. City are a really good side, great manager, some great players, a way of playing that they all know about and Manchester United seem to be not too sure what’s going on.“You don’t really know the team, you don’t really know the players, you don’t know how they’re going to perform from one week to the next. So I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see them challenging for the league this year.” Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is wary of his former club’s chances to win the Premier League title this season.The Red Devils finished 19 points behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City after 38 games last campaign, and Liverpool are now considered the champions’ biggest threat this year. Liverpool are considered Man City’s biggest challengers this season Jose Mourinho will be hoping to prove Scholes wrong and silence the rest of his critics, by building on his 2-1 victory over Leicester City last Friday with a win against Brighton and Hove Albion this weekend.

Calls for seafood and fisheries funding to be considered ahead of Budget 2020

first_imgThe government has been urged to set funding aside for the Fisheries and Marine sector as the UK prepares to leave the EU on October 31. The calls come from Fianna Fáil spokesperson on Fisheries and the Marine, Pat the Cope Gallagher, who says funding should be set aside for the sector similar to any dedicated funding for other indigenous sectors in the Budget ahead of Brexit.He said: “Ahead of the next budget there is an indication funding will be ring-fenced for certain sectors such as beef. It is imperative the Fisheries and Marine sector is included in any funding. “It is self-evident to everyone that the Marine Sector are not being given recognition when it comes to contingency planning and preparedness for the United Kingdom leaving the EU.“We have an obligation to protect the sector. 60% of mackerel and 40% of Nephrops are caught within UK waters. It is vital that this sector is protected.“The government must protect this sector. The provision of a mitigation fund in the forthcoming budget has to be considered,” concluded Deputy Gallagher.Calls for seafood and fisheries funding to be considered ahead of Budget 2020 was last modified: September 30th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)last_img read more

Google/YouTube To Invest In Music Distributor Vevo?

first_imgIs Google about to make a move to control the distribution of music videos? Well, maybe. If YouTube and its corporate owner Google take a stake in music video distributor Vevo, as has been widely reported in the last 24 hours, it would be yet another sign of the tech giant’s increasing interest in video content. All Things D reports that Google will take a minority stake in Vevo, the source of YouTube’s most popular videos. The amount is expected to exceed the $35 million Google invested in Machinima, the videogame and entertainment distribution network, back in May 2012. According to the Guardian, the investment could amount to as much as $67 million.If it happens, the deal will solidify a shaky, three-year relationship. Vevo is a top traffic driver on YouTube, the largest video site on the Web and second-most-popular video search engine. Vevo, a joint venture between Universal Music, Sony Music and Abu Dhabi Media, threatened to remove its videos from YouTube last July unless Google’s YouTube fees were lowered, and even went so far as to pursue publishing arrangements with Viacom’s MTV and Facebook.While YouTube did not respond to requests for comment, the deal would guarantee that Vevo stays put on Google’s video service, which should keep the music videos flowing. That’s a good thing. No one wants to spend their time watching music videos through Facebook’s wonky video player.  Photo courtesy of YouTube.
