Trump is a cancer on American people

first_imgIt’s now crystal clear that America has given the keys to the castle and the power to rule to a totally incompetent, corrupt, bumbling fraud — a con man who is dismantling the great edifice of America brick-by-brick. More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesPuccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinioncenter_img Demagogue Donald Trump exploited angry, dispossessed voters with his pathological lies and false promises. He has failed to deliver on a single “promise” — no health care bill, no wall has been built, no middle-class tax reform, no lasting ban on immigrants, etc.Instead his “accomplishments” include: an indicted campaign manager, Paul Manafort, charged with crimes against the United States; a possibly soon-to-be-indicted National Security adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn; probable collusion with our arch enemy, Russia, to win the election; insulting Gold Star mothers; alienating highly regarded senators like John McCain, Bob Corker and Jeff Flake; encouraging white supremacists and losing the support of some of our strongest allies in Europe.I’m personally infuriated and sickened by the red carpet treatment, the respect and admiration, given this despicable, contemptuous man by foreign leaders. For 200 years, great leaders, honorable statesmen, immigrants and Native Americans, have led and molded this country to become the leader of the free world. Now we must watch a corrupt, despicable sexual predator, a con man convicted of bilking thousands of people in a fake university scam, reap the rewards of their exceptional achievements.This toxic, corrupt demagogue is a cancer to America. He needs to be removed. We really are counting on you, Bob Mueller.VINCE DACQUISTONiskayunalast_img read more

​Norway eases SWF’s reporting duty to semiannual from quarterly

first_img“Norges Bank must continuously assess the need to publish information on developments in the fund outside the half-year and annual reports, especially during periods of particularly severe turmoil in the financial markets,” the ministry wrote in its announcement.Asked whether NBIM would in fact switch to less frequent financial reporting on the fund, a spokeswoman for the central bank division referred IPE to the finance ministry for all questions related to their decision.However, she did confirm that all NBIM’s reports would still be available in English. The mandate changes state only that the reporting must be in Norwegian.State Secretary Marianne Eikvåg Groth, of Norway’s Conservative Party, told IPE the change to less frequent mandatory reporting was initiated by the ministry and not Norges Bank.The management mandate stated that there should be the greatest possible transparency about the management of the fund within the limits defined by responsible execution of the mandate, she said.At the end of September 2019, the GPFG managed NOK9.7tn (€982bn) while the GPFN had NOK261bn. Managers of Norway’s huge sovereign wealth fund will be required to report only every half year rather than quarterly following changes to their mandates effective at the beginning of this year.The government said mid-year reporting safeguarded long-term considerations better than the current quarterly reporting system, and that it would help save resources.The Norwegian finance ministry announced details of changes to the mandate and reporting framework for the smaller portion of the fund, the locally-invested Government Pension Fund Norway (GPFN), in December, and for the much larger Government Pension Fund Global (GPFG) at the end of November.   However, the new rules do not necessarily mean that in practice the managers of the two funds – Folketrygdfondet and Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM) respectively – will abandon more frequent reporting, since the government has also put the onus on the managers themselves to decide whether there is a need for additional publications.last_img read more

$210M budgeted for synthetic tracks in five regions

first_imgA BUDGETED $210M for proposed synthetic track facilities to be laid in Regions 2, 4, 6, 7 and 10 was the highlight that came out of Minister within the Ministry of Education responsible for Culture, Youth and Sport, Nicolette Henry’s budget debate speech when she addressed the National Assembly yesterday morning.The minister’s overall 28-minute speech included deliberations about sports, culture and youth policies.The Minister opened by saying that her presentation “will focus on the achievements in 2016, as well as the measures and plans contained in this budget, intended to positively impact the areas of culture, youth and sport.”As it pertains to sports, Henry made the promise that the government will “work assiduously to prepare our athletes, and 2020 Olympics should see Guyanese athletes more than just participating, but rather they will be given the requisite support and tools to compete”.Following up, the Minister stated that the 2017 budget “makes provision for support to our athletes to benefit from training and development exposure”.The minister did not elaborate or mention the specific programmes or initiatives that will be implemented towards achieving this end or say what direct support will be given to the athletes, or say what was allocated towards achieving this goal.On a mini report on achievements made for this year, the realisation of the National Sports Commission (NSC) electronic national database for athletes was cited.She did, however, hint at realisation of the long-awaited National Sports Policy in 2017, which will “guide” the NSC in its move to “strengthen sport-related services”.She also spoke of the continuation of the training and accreditation of coaches in 2017 through bilateral agreements with Brazil, Cuba, Mexico and Germany, which will provide training in athletics, rugby, football, swimming and any other sporting discipline which needs technical assistance and support.”The provision of up to $10M was mentioned for the continued enhancement and upgrade of identified facilities in the community ground enhancement initiative.Also towards the facilities, Henry says sports facilities can look forward to wifi in 2017, which will aid in the streaming of sports events across the internet.After that the Minister moved on to culture.When the APNU/AFC government took over the reins in 2015 the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport was absorbed as a department under the Ministry of Education so that culture, youth and sport initiatives could better be integrated into the school system.last_img read more

Organisers blame late starts, working week for empty  athletics stadium

first_imgBy Brian HomewoodDOHA (Reuters) – The embarrassingly low attendance at the world athletics championships was blamed on late start times and a blockade of the country by other nations in the region by the event’s organisers on Monday.Athletes, pundits and global TV audiences have widely criticised the poor turnout at the Khalifa Stadium over the first three days of competition.The 48,000-capacity venue was barely half full for the men’s 100 meters final on Saturday. But on Sunday, when the women’s 100 meters headlined the action, it was almost completely empty. The local organising committee said in a statement that attendances on Friday and Saturday were “solid” but were “down on our expectations” on Sunday, which they said “coincided with the start of the working week in Qatar.”“The challenge we face with a competition schedule that is geared to support global TV viewership, is that some finals are not starting until the late evening,” it said. “This impacts on the number of spectators remaining until the end of the session.”The LOC said it was “confident with our additional communications (that) we will see more attendees for longer periods.”It then mentioned the boycott which has been imposed on Qatar by Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Egypt, who accuse the Gulf state of supporting terrorism, which it denies. “Our vision was for a first world championships in the Middle East. An IAAF World Athletics Championships that would welcome the world and connect to new fans. Despite facing unique challenges as hosts, in terms of the political blockade, that ambition remains,” it said.The statement added that the athletes competing at the Khalifa stadium have “relished the experience.” “The controlled temperature conditions on the track have been ideal and fitting for world-class performances and will remain so,” it said.last_img read more
