…investigation ongoing into smuggling to Suriname and Trinidad  The price of sugar has touched the $100 per pound mark in Berbice, and shopkeepers are claiming that Guysuco has increased the cost for the commodity.However, on Sunday, Minister of Agriculture Robert Persaud told residents in Berbice that they should not pay any increase for the commodity, since the sugar company did not raise the price.But even as the minister sought to calm the concerns of residents, he himself admitted that investigations are ongoing into the smuggling of sugar to Suriname and Trinidad.“People are smuggling the sugar, and what we have to do is monitor the quota of the local people, especially in Berbice, because we received reports that they are smuggling the sugar, ” Persaud said during a meeting with farmers at Rose Hall village on Sunday.He said that Guysuco was seeking an increase of one cent a pound for sugar, but that he denied the company.“I told them that we need to ensure that we preserve the price, but the problem we face is that we got report, and we are investigating it, that the sugar that is supposed to be in the local market is in Suriname, and that is why they are creating some sort of problem.”The minister, however, assured that there will be sufficient sugar on the local market.The minister said that there is strict management of the quota system.“We have also advertised the price at which people should sell sugar, and any distributor that sells above that, we will take away the arrangement that the retailer may have with Guysuco, ” Minister Persaud said.The minister added that there is no shortage, Nike Air Max 1 Mens Trainers, but a check is being made to determine if distributors are hoarding the commodity.“They work the numbers and they know it…what the local consumers pay for sugar and the price that it can be sold for are very different, so there is an incentive to smuggle it out, but we have to prevent that, ” Minister Persaud added.When asked about a mechanism that can be put in place to check on the supply of sugar in the county, Persaud said that he will ask the New Guyana Marketing Corporation to use their distribution systems.He said that he believes there may be a problem of distribution and not supply, stating that there is the quantum but it may not be evenly distributed in the various sectors.“If we are able to determine which areas in Berbice have a distribution problem with the sugar, then I can let New GMC come and do the truck system in the different areas, ” he added.He said that people should not pay an increase, because Guysuco is absorbing that increased cost for production for the local consumers.

I know I have been missing for two weeks, and for good reason; the Seeram family got a new addition, a beautiful baby girl, my first granddaughter born a week ago. And yes Grand Pa has more responsibility. It was a new experience for me, very much unlike when my two children were born in New Amsterdam. My son was born at the New Amsterdam Hospital or I should say the old New Amsterdam Hospital, Nike Air Max 2018 Shoes, the one the government allowed vandals to steal.From the hospital he went home where he was placed on a bed with two pillows on the side to prevent rolling, no cradle or cribs that was it.My daughter was born at home in Smythfield, delivered by Nurse Ward. Many of the older folks might remember Nurse Ward; she probably delivered more than a thousand babies in New Amsterdam and its environs.My daughter had a crib, a gift from my neighbor Isaac Romalho who personally made the crib, which the baby promptly refused to sleep in, preferring to sleep on my arms– yes no bed for her. So when my granddaughter was born I suggested that the baby would have to sleep with her for the first few months. Was I wrong!! Not only wrong but apparently out of touch with the times.A month before the baby was born her room was furnished; she had her own room (as I am writing I am recalling my six siblings sharing one room). She has her crib, a play pen/bassinet, another piece of furniture that rocks her to sleep while playing lullaby songs, and of course a rocking chair. I won’t even get in to the other baby accessories.Did I mention a video monitor with a portable screen where you can see and hear the baby cry? I never knew you had to get so many pieces of baby furniture for the first few years of the baby upbringing. Makes me wonder how we managed to rear our two kids without all those equipment. For that matter how do the babies in Guyana grow up without those luxuries. Yes they are luxuries to me. Maybe I am not up with the times.For good measure to ensure Grand Pa and Grand Ma share the responsibilities, my daughter set up in my bedroom, a crib, play pen/bassinet and a rocker bed. What a smart move. I don’t think it needs any explanation. There is “no if and but”; I would have to do some babysitting, part of being grandparents I am told.From my little interactions with her I think we will get on fine– except for her wake up and play time, she wakes up and wants to play from 1 am to 4 am, or as Guyanese would say “foreday morning”Now I did mention I have a three-year-old grandson, who acts like he is 16. He is a great backseat driver; from his child seat he directs me how to drive. “Papa go that way” choosing which entrance he wants to exit his school. The car hits a bump on the road and he tells me “Papa you have to be careful; you can’t drive, I am going to drive my car next time” He has a large battery operated car.One day I was passing a vehicle and he tells me, “you driving too fast”. He thinks he is a driving instructor. The other day he was reading a book and I attempted to talk to him. “You are talking while I am reading Papa”. “Don’t disturb me”.Sometimes I marvel at how he can express himself. It really comes down to his exposure to learning materials.Did I mention he has his own room loaded with all the learning educational and materials you can think about? Two days ago his mother showed me an iPhone she gave him —iPhone. Now what does a three-year-old need an iPhone for?It actually turned out to be a good idea. He likes to play with my iPhone. I don’t know how he does it but sometimes he bypasses the password and gets into programs, and unearths stuff I did not know exist on my phone.However, the beauty of the Iphone is that it can download and store hundreds of interactive educational programmes, and that is the part that fascinates my grandson. He loves the educational Apps on the phone; that’s why he loves to play with my phone. It is fun for him but at the same time a great interactive educational tool– fun while learning.Just in case you are wondering, his phone does not make calls; it is only used as an educational tool. Now a week ago I made the mistake of allowing him to play educational games on my laptop. Now he wants to use my laptop, he loves the large screen. Maybe he can, later, but for now I had to draw the line; his tiny fingers are too quick for me.He locked up my computer the other day; I had to get help to unlock it.Grand Pa will have fun babysitting his grandson and granddaughter. It will be interesting considering that another loved one will also need my attention. In fact she demands my attention. The other love of my life, my pet cat, Chelsea. Despite all the “fancy stuff” in my room, I can see the four of us sleeping together on my bed “Guyanese style” the way I grew up. Don’t tell my daughter that.Ralph Seeram can be reached at email: [email protected]

Tortured teen probe…– RamsammyBy Latoya Giles Almost two weeks after the Medical Council submitted its recommendations to him, Cheap Mens Jordan Sneakers, Minister of Health, Leslie Ramsammy, is still to make a decision on the fate of Police Surgeon Dr. Mahendra Chand for his treatment toward the tortured teen.The Health Minister told Kaieteur News that the Medical Council, on his recommendation, sent additional information on the case to him last Friday.Dr Leslie RamsammyDr. Ramsammy said he would be perusing the documents on Monday and his recommendations would be made public soon.According to the Health Minister, the process is being dragged out because the Medical Council only meets once a month and he only received the last document on Friday.Kaieteur News understands that the Medical Council had also provided Dr. Ramsammy with the minutes of its meeting in which the Council had recommended the two-month suspension for Dr. Chand.Ramsammy said that it was a ‘touchy’ matter and he is dealing with it effectively. He stated that although the Medical Council is an independent body he still has to make recommendations about the matter.The Minister had earlier stated that after his recommendations were made he would contact the Dr. Chand.He said that afterwards he would then contact the Ministry of Home Affairs since the doctor was seconded by them to do police medical reports.Officials at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) would also be informed because the doctor still receives a salary from that institution.Kaieteur News was told that Dr. Chand is still assigned to his regular duties for the Guyana Police Force.After the Council had decided upon its two-month suspension, Dr. Chand was asked to respond in writing to this decision. Officials from the Council said he failed to respond.Kaieteur News had reported that Director of Medical and Professional Services Dr. Madan Rambarran had proposed to the Guyana Medical Council that Dr. Chand be given “a stern warning, ” rather than being suspended.He has also suggested that the physician, undergo a course on medical ethics, while acknowledging that the doctor’s performance “did not conform to the expected standards of ethical and professional practice”.Kaieteur News was told that some Council members have also suggested that Dr. Chand be “rotated back” through the hospital and another doctor be assigned to his position as Police Surgeon.

Trans Guyana Airways, a domestic commercial airline that was established in Guyana since 1956, reportedly experienced some mechanical problems with one of their planes flying from Mabaruma to Ogle.Kit Nascimento, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) for Trans Guyana Airways, Cheap Jordan Sneakers Wholesale, said that one of the company’s planes took off from Mabaruma around 11:55 hours. However, the pilot of the plane was not satisfied with how the engine was performing and decided to turn around and landed it back at Mabaruma where the passengers that boarded the aircraft were disembarked. Ground checks were then made to the aircraft.According to Nascimento, the plane left empty from Mabaruma for Ogle where arrangements were made to have it examined by the aeronautical engineers of the sister company for Trans Guyana Airways, Caribbean Aviation Maintenance Services Limited.According to one passenger, the Pilot of the aircraft tried to assure them that it was okay to fly out on the same aircraft, but they had some fears and expressed these to him. After some discussion, it was agreed that another aircraft would be sent in to transport them out of Mabaruma.  This should be done today.Trans Guyana Airways on its website stated that it “currently owns and operates an expanding fleet of eight aircraft (seven Caravans and one Islander), flying approximately 22 domestic commercial flights per day and two international flights each day to Suriname.
