He has a burning sensation in his mouth and urines every time he consumes water.Speaking from his bed in the High Dependency Unit of the hospital, George, Kemba Walker Uconn Jersey, who was being administered saline, related that it was since last week that he had advised his doctor about his condition. He said that he was advised by the doctor to return to the hospital at anytime if his condition persists.According to the man, his main concern lies in the fact that he seems to be consuming more water than the doctor recommended.“The doctor told me that I should only drink enough to quench my thirst but it seems as if every time I drink the water it passes right out so I am drinking more all the time to replace water in my system just so I do not become dehydrated.”The man has attributed his weakness to the fact that he has not been eating much solid foods. “I am still walking shakily. When I am at home I am lying down all the time.”George revealed, too, that he has been experiencing a burning sensation in his mouth, which has persisted for some time since his operation on February 1.According to George, he was informed that the burning sensation is in fact a side effect of the operation and should have been appeased by the use of a mouthwash, which was provided by the hospital.However, he is of the belief that there was some misunderstanding as it relates to the application of the mouthwash. “The nurses told me that I needed to rinse my mouth with the mouthwash then spit it out and that is what I was doing. But I was told by a doctor that I needed to rinse and swallow. Even the bottle said that I needed to swallow the liquid…so I believe this is how the problem started.”George said that he was told that his failure to utilise the mouthwash in the correct way had caused him to develop a fungus in his mouth, which is responsible for the burning sensation he is experiencing.After suffering from renal failure for a number of years, George was afforded a kidney from his 25-year-old daughter, Melissa George, an Immigration Officer, who is said to be doing well and is back on the job.The operation, which represents the second such procedure to be conducted at the public hospital, was again conducted by New York-based doctor, Rahul Jindal.Dr Jindal had assured that he will continue to assist local doctors in the follow-up treatment of the patients by advising them via telephone and email.

A 30-year-old chipper operator of Barama Company’s veneer plant at Buckhall, in the Essequibo River, met a horrific death after he was dragged through the machine he was using and shredded to pieces.The fragmented remains of Jason Fraser were discovered early yesterday morning, three days after he disappeared while working on the machine.Security officials of the company were greeted with a foul smell when they approached the plant around 07:00 hours yesterday. Suspecting that the smell emanating might be that of the operator’s remains, company officials quickly cordoned off the area and called in the police.“He was missing since Monday and was apparently pulled through the machine in what can be described as a freak accident, ” an official said.The official stated that all the safety features of the machine were intact and there were no signs that Fraser had encountered problems with it.Kaieteur News understands that Fraser was last seen at around 16:00 hours on Monday.However, an hour later he was discovered missing after colleagues noticed that the machine was “backing up” and assumed that Fraser had abandoned the chipper.A check of his room in the company’s compound came up empty handed as none of his personal belongings were found, giving company officials the impression that he had left the location, Cheap Jerseys Supply, which according to the official was not unusual.It was later disclosed that Fraser had relocated to another room where his personal belongings were eventually found.This convinced officials that Fraser was still around and might have encountered some sort of misfortune.It was only yesterday morning while checking near the chipper that officials observed the foul smell and later found what appeared to be pieces of Fraser’s body.The Buckhall Veneer Plant is currently undergoing production testing for its planned official opening soon.

– Education Minister welcomes interventionThe enhancement of dormitories in hinterland schools has apparently now turned into a political debate between the main opposition party, A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and Government.Opposition Leader, Brigadier (rtd.) David Granger, has called for an immediate, independent investigation into the administration of hinterland secondary schools, especially those with dormitories.This call comes in the wake of recent reports of misconduct by teachers and students and mismanagement by the Ministry of Education.Granger warned that as the Tenth Parliament starts, the Opposition will have no tolerance for sloppy management of the nation’s hinterland schools. He insisted that it is time to improve the conditions of hinterland schools in order to protect Guyana’s children from abuse.But Education Minister Priya Manickchand is contending that “Granger’s interests may be late and even to a reasonable person may appear to be motivated by political opportunism. However, his interest is encouraged.”“I would urge though that some balance and reality be attached to statements made about our children and that we desist from politicking with our young and innocent student population, ” she stated.Manickchand said that she welcomes the Opposition Leader’s “new found interest” in hinterland students, while pointing out that the Ministries of Education, Amerindian Affairs and Local Government are embarking on a detailed examination of the status of hinterland secondary schools with particular focus on the provision of services and the expansion of dormitories.Supporting his claims, the Opposition Leader outlined several instances of what he called severe and chronic administrative problems that have hampered students’ education in many regions.He said that about 2, 500 students currently live in state-run dormitories from Mabaruma, Region One to Aishalton, Region Nine. There have been scant remedial actions on the problems over the years but there seems to have been no significant improvements in the management of the dormitories, Granger claimed.Granger said that parents from Ituni only this week staged a protest over the poor conditions at the Kwakwani and Linden Foundation Secondary Schools’ hostels. The parents have claimed that their children were victims of physical violence and sexual abuse. A teenager, in one case, returned pregnant to her home community.This week also saw members of the Parent-Teacher Association and residents of Port Kaituma protesting against the ‘deplorable’ conditions at the community primary school, calling on the administration to repair the unsatisfactory toilets in the compound.He added, “The deaths of several students, which have not been satisfactorily explained or investigated, Jay Ajayi Dolphins Jersey, have been most distressing. It was recalled that three pre-teen girls perished in a fire which destroyed the female dormitory of the Waramadong Secondary School in September 2008.“The male dormitory and a library of the Bartica Secondary School were destroyed by fire in December 2007.”Granger also recounted instances where a 13-year-old student of the Charity Secondary School was found hanging in the washroom of the school’s dormitory in an ‘apparent suicide’ and a 15-year-old girl of Saint Ignatius Secondary School was found hanging from a Juniper tree in September.He also recalled that in November 2011, the decomposing bodies of three students from the Aishalton Secondary School, were dug out from an abandoned mining pit, one week after they were reported missing.Reports of sexual molestation of students by two teachers of the same school had been investigated only two months earlier.Manickchand stated that Chief Education Officer, Olato Sam, and a team from the Education Ministry, are now at the St. Ignatius Secondary School, Region Nine, supplying more education materials and examining ways to better education delivery.This comes one week after Sam visited the Santa Rosa Secondary School in Region One where a similar exercise was conducted. A team will also visit the dorm school at Paramakatoi next week.The Education Minister emphasized that owing to Government’s interest in treating hinterland children equally, coupled with conscious and focused educational policies and programmes Guyana now has the largest number of hinterland students writing the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate.She stressed that St Ignatius is just one example of the success of hinterland education. The enrollment and exam results are evidence of the success of the Government’s efforts. A new school is about to be opened in Sand Creek and more such interventions in hinterland education are being undertaken.

– As government buys 2, 000 acres from GuySuCoGovernment has announced that it has sealed a deal with the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) for 10, 000 more house lots on the East Bank Demerara.Yesterday, President Bharrat Jagdeo, fresh from his return from a visit to the Middle East, also said that the 2, 000 acres of land would see, within two years, basic infrastructure being put into place for allocations.A $4B supplementary allocation to the Ministry of Housing, recently, has been used for the purchase of the land.Minister of Housing, Jermon Bushrod Dolphins Jersey, Irfaan Ali, yesterday, revealed that the house lots will be located from Peters Hall to Diamond, East Bank Demerara.However, several issues, including identification and surveying, will have to be worked out before the infrastructural works can start. Then there will have to be the tender phase for contractors to carry out the works.Minister Ali said that the 10, 000 house lots are part of the 17, 000 announced by government to meet the huge demand. In Region Four especially, the demand is the highest in the country.Areas targeted for more housing development includes Hope and Non Pareil, on the East Coast Demerara; Tuschen, East Bank Essequibo, and Zeelugt, West Coast Demerara. Further expansion will also be done at Parfait Harmonie and Onderneeming.The $4B allocation was critical for the purchase of the GuySuCo land, the Minister noted, to fulfill the policy of meeting the 17, 000 house lots and meeting the Region 4 demands.Important to note that much more investments will be required to ensure the infrastructure will be put in place to ensure that service lots are created for the allottees.“The recent ramblings of the opposition forces must be silenced by the transformation of the housing sector and the fulfillment of a critical need of our people. Something no doubt that was absent prior to 1992, ” the Minister said.The Minister said that his Ministry stands committed to the investments of the $4B as the people of Guyana will benefit.“We stand committed to transparency and accountability in delivering services to our people. We will also stand strong against any force that seeks to walk out on a vote that sought to bring this benefit to our people. When the roll is called up, the people will have their say.”According to Ali, developmental works will be done in a phased manner and will include detailed surveys, plans and designs. Eventually a costing will have to be worked out on infrastructural works, which will then have to be tendered and executed.Then there is the stage of allocating the house lots.

By: Attorney Gail S. SeeramIn the United States, non-citizens are persons who do not have U.S. citizenship, including lawful permanent residents, refugees and asylum seekers, persons who have permission to come to the U.S. for reasons like work, school or travel, and those without legal immigration status of any kind. Non-citizens who are in the United States—no matter what their immigration status—generally have the same constitutional rights as citizens when law enforcement officers stop, question, arrest, or search them or their homes.However, non-citizens being questioned by an Immigration Officer or who are trying to enter the U.S. do not have all the same rights.  Note, law enforcement officer refers to an officer enforcing state criminal laws, whereas Immigration Officer refers to an officer enforcing federal immigration laws.Q. What can I do if law enforcement officers want to question me?A: You have the same right to be silent that U.S. citizens have, so the general rule is that you do not have to answer any questions that a law enforcement officer asks you. However, there are exceptions to this at ports of entry, such as airports and borders.Q: Do I have to answer questions about whether I am a U.S. citizen, where I was born, where I live, where I am from, or other questions about my immigration status?A: You do not have to answer any of the above questions if you do not want to answer them. But do not falsely claim U.S. citizenship. It is almost always a good idea to speak with a lawyer before you answer questions about your immigration status. Immigration law is very complicated, and you could have a problem without realizing it. A lawyer can help protect your rights, advise you, and help you avoid a problem.  Always remember that even if you have answered some questions, you can still decide you do not want to answer any more questions.Immigration Officers can require non-immigrants to provide information related to their immigration status. However, even if you are a non-immigrant, you can still say that you would like to have your lawyer with you before you answer questions, and you have the right to stay silent if your answer to a question could be used against you in a criminal case.Q: Do I have to show officers my immigration documents?A: The law requires non-citizens who are 18 or older and who have been issued valid U.S. immigration documents to carry those documents with them at all times. (These immigration documents are often called “alien registration” documents. The type you need to carry depends on your immigration status. Some examples include an unexpired permanent resident card (“green card&rdquo ;), I-94, Employment Authorization Document (EAD), or border crossing card.) Failure to comply carry these documents can be a misdemeanor crime.If you have your valid U.S. immigration documents and you are asked for them, then it is usually a good idea to show them to the officer because it is possible that you will be arrested if you do not do so. Keep a copy of your documents in a safe place and apply for a replacement immediately if you lose your documents or if they are going to expire.If you are arrested because you do not have your U.S. immigration documents with you, but you have them elsewhere, ask a friend or family member (preferably one who has valid immigration status) to bring them to you. It is never a good idea to show an officer fake immigration documents or to pretend that someone else’s immigration documents are yours. If you are undocumented and therefore do not have valid U.S. immigration documents, you can decide not to answer questions about your citizenship or immigration status or whether you have documents.If you tell an Immigration Officer that you are not a U.S. citizen and you then cannot produce valid U.S. immigration documents, there is a very good chance you will be arrested.Q: What should I do if there is an immigration raid where I work?A: If your workplace is raided, it may not be clear to you whether you are free to leave. Either way, you have the right to remain silent—you do not have to answer questions about your citizenship, immigration status or anything else. If you do answer questions and you say that you are not a U.S. citizen, you will be expected to produce immigration documents showing your immigration status. If you try to run away, the Immigration Officers will assume that you are in the U.S. illegally and you will likely be arrested.The safer course is to continue with your work or calmly ask if you may leave, and to not answer any questions you do not want to answer.Q: What can I do if immigration officers are arresting me and I have children in my care or my children need to be picked up and taken care of?A: If you have children with you when you are arrested, ask the officers if you can call a family member or friend to come take care of them before the officers take you away. If you are arrested when your children are at school or elsewhere, call a friend or family member as soon as possible so that a responsible adult will be able to take care of them.More importantly, when confronted by an Immigration Officer, Anthony Munoz Bengals Throwback Jersey, ask for his/her name or ask for their card.  Immigration Officers tend to be aggressive, but assert your right to be silent and ask to call your family member or attorney if you are in custody.  Next week, we continue to discuss your rights when arrested by an Immigration Officer.
