A labourer was on Friday sentenced to one year in prison when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts slapped with two counts of simple larceny.Jason Joseph admitted to the charges after they were read to him by Magistrate Leron Daly.The Court heard that between July 4 and July 5, 2018, while at Lot 196 Charlotte Street, Georgetown, he broke and entered the storeroom of Ryan Gobi and stole one roll of electrical wire valued $600,000; one power drill valued $105,000; one electrical machine valued $28,000 and mechanical tools valued $45,000, a total value of $778,00,0 property of Sherwin Khan.He also admitted that between July 4 and July 5, 2018, at the same location, he broke and entered the store of Ryan Gobi and stole one electrical saw valued $35,000; painting materials valued $15,000 and other items valued $20,000, property of Sherwin Khan.According to facts presented by the prosecution, on the day in question the Virtual Complainant secured the storeroom and left the premises.Later, upon checking, he observed that the storeroom was open and subsequently discovered the items missing.As a result, the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) footage was reviewed and this led to the arrest of the defendant who subsequently admitted to the offence.
To effectively lessen waste generation, reduce energy consumption and improve social growth in Guyana’s manufacturing sector, there is a window of advantages if eco-industrial parks are established at key locations.This is the opinion shared by a senior economist of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Ralph Lucan on Thursday evening, who presented the idea after taking a look at some sites on the coast.According to Lucan, an eco-industrial park is one where “People collaborate in managing environment and resource issues and they interact. The community of business seeks collective benefit that is greater than the sum of individual benefits. Each company would realise by optimising its individual performance.”While there are a few negative implications, the positive outcomes far outweigh these setbacks. As companies utilise the waste materials such as steam from another plant, less greenhouse gases and chemicals are generated.“There are benefits of an eco-industrial park and there are several around the world. There is reduced use of waste of raw materials [and] water energy chemicals, minimise greenhouse gases; reduce waste through resource circularity or industrial symbiosis,” said the economist.He added, “There is reduced economic environmental social risks; recycling of activities, improve competitiveness and profitability, better jobs, health and safety, better access to new technologies and finance by sharing ideas.”However, such a concept must be carefully executed using a park management performance initiative to keep track of the growth rate and if companies are benefiting as they should. Employment generation is greatly influenced by this mechanism.“Park management performance focuses on environmental performance in terms of energy management, waste management, water management. They think about the social performance in terms of the social structure, community outreach and there is improved productivity in employment generation, local business SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises). The idea is more along the lines of sustainable development.”He noted that in these cases, there must be adequate facilities on site to cater for emergencies including fires and industrial accidents. Waste removal can pose as a major issue as large generation of unwanted materials are produced.In Guyana, Lucan alluded to areas such as Coldigen, East Coast Demerara which is known for furniture making and woodworking activities. A similar setup can be seen at Industrial Site, Ruimveldt on the East Bank Demerara and there are possibilities for these areas to become primetime eco-industrial parks.

MONTEBELLO — Over $1 million in state grants to boost Montebello’s greening efforts can soon be spent to effectively link the city to the region-wide Emerald Necklace Project — a 17-mile loop of trails and parks between the Rio Hondo Channel and the San Gabriel Valley River. Officials are finalizing the details of the little-known Montebello Riverbed Restoration Project, which will provide and refurbish access points to the bike and horse trails that are part of the Emerald Necklace along the Rio Hondo Channel on the city’s east end. Some local Sierra Club members and even city councilmembers were unaware of the project or the grant money in recent interviews, even though the project details were posted in City Hall Feb. 9 for a 30-day public review period. And the subject was never mentioned when the council faced a vote in January to officially join the Emerald Necklace Accord a move they did approve.

0Shares0000Edinson Cavani celebrates his sublime double against Portugal in the World Cup last 16. PHOTO/FIFASOCHI, Russia, Jun 30 – Edinson Cavani scored twice as Uruguay shattered Cristiano Ronaldo’s World Cup dream with a 2-1 victory over Portugal here Saturday.Paris Saint-Germain striker Cavani curled home a superb 62nd-minute winner to settle a thrilling second round duel in Sochi which sends Uruguay into a quarter-final against France next Friday. Cavani had already put Uruguay in front early on, only for Pepe to head Portugal level in the 55th minute in a thrilling contest that was not the battle of attrition many predicted.Pepe’s goal was the first time the South Americans’ defence had been breached in this tournament, but they stood firm after that and are beginning to look like genuine contenders moving into the latter stages in Russia.The only downside for Oscar Tabarez’s side was the sight of Cavani limping off late on, raising a question mark over his fitness for next week’s last eight showdown with the French in Nizhny Novgorod.Meanwhile, European champions Portugal go home, as Ronaldo and Lionel Messi bow out of the competition on the same day.In contrast, Uruguay march on with arguably the best defence in international football and one of the best strike pairings anywhere.Suarez and Cavani combined brilliantly for the seventh-minute opener on Russia’s Black Sea coast.Cavani picked out Suarez on the left with a cross-field ball, before continuing his run into the penalty area and meeting the Barcelona striker’s return delivery at the back post, the ball smacking off his face and flying in.– Pepe breaches Uruguay defence –Pepe rises to score against Uruguay during their last 16 match. PHOTO/FIFASuarez almost doubled the lead from a free-kick midway through the first half that forced a good save from Rui Patricio.Meanwhile, Ronaldo did not touch the ball once in the opposition area in the first period. But with Uruguay sitting back, Portugal did equalise 10 minutes into the second half.A corner was played short to Raphael Guerreiro, and his cross from the left was headed home from close range by Pepe, rising high above Diego Godin in the area.After nearly five and a half hours of football, it was the first goal Uruguay had let in at this World Cup — indeed it was the first they had conceded in 2018.But their response to that was magnificent as they went quickly retook the lead, Rodrigo Bentancur teeing up Cavani for a magnificent first-time curling strike into the far corner on his right foot.Portugal coach Fernando Santos threw up his hands in disgust, realising that coming from behind a second time against this Uruguay defence was going to be a tall order.Goalkeeper Fernando Muslera did almost gift them another equaliser, dropping a high ball at the feet of Bernardo Silva, but the Manchester City man could only volley over.Portugal’s Bernado Silva tries to go past Uruguay left back Laxalt during their World Cup Round of 16 game.

Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel has admitted he is unsure whether midfielder Ilkay Gundogan will stay at the club, following reports linking him with a move to Manchester City.Germany international Gundogan, 25, is approaching the final year of his contract at Dortmund, and has been strongly linked with moves to City as well as Barcelona this summer.But the Blues are thought to be closest to a deal, with the £23million-rated star’s agent – his uncle Ilhan Gundogan – reportedly meeting with City director of football Txiki Begiristain this week, with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf publishing a photograph of the pair in Amsterdam.This came soon after Begiristain was said to have met up with incoming City manager Pep Guardiola in the Dutch capital.Tuchel, speaking at a press conference to preview his side’s Europa League clash with Tottenham, said: “Am I convinced that he will stay? I don’t really know. I can only say that once he has actually signed. I know what we can offer him and if that’s enough for him to stay then so be it.”When asked specifically about the photograph, Tuchel said he was not concerned and briefly spoke in English to emphasise this point.“I’m not disappointed and I’m not convinced,” he said.He added: “I do not understand the excitement about all of this.“We are also looking forward to next season. We are planning and we speak to advisers and players – it is part of the everyday job we do.” Could Ilkay Gundogan join Pep Guardiola at Manchester City next season? 1

But judges retain the last word on sentencing, and experts said it’s unlikely most cooperators will avoid prison. While judges will credit cooperators with helping prosecutors, “that will also be balanced against the severity of the crimes and the staggering losses to the many victims of the Enron fraud,” said Robert Mintz, a former federal prosecutor. “It is a good bet that most of the sentences will involve some jail time.” Enron crashed into bankruptcy protection in December 2001 when unsustainable accounting tricks designed to make the wobbly company appear healthy cratered. The collapse wiped out more than $60 billion in market value, nearly $2.1 billion in employees’ retirement savings and, initially, 5,600 jobs. A jury on May 25 convicted Lay and Skilling of perpetuating Enron’s ruse through repeated lies to investors and employees about the company’s health. HOUSTON – Now that Enron Corp. founder Kenneth Lay and former Chief Executive Jeffrey Skilling are felons, the string of ex-executives whose testimony helped the government snag those convictions face punishments of their own. Sixteen former Enron executives have pleaded guilty to various crimes during the government’s four-plus-year probe into the energy trader’s 2001 collapse. Last week, prosecutors won their most sought-after convictions. That done, most of those underlings, including eight who testified during the trial, will face judges for sentencing this year. Most prominent among them is former Chief Financial Officer Andrew Fastow, whose January 2004 admission of orchestrating fraudulent deals to manipulate earnings led prosecutors to indictments against Lay and Skilling. There’s also former Chief Accounting Officer Richard Causey, who didn’t testify, but who cut a last-minute plea deal and avoided trial alongside the former CEOs. During the four-month trial, defense lawyers repeatedly noted how the government can ask judges to impose probation if prosecutors determine cooperators “perform” well. Lay was convicted of six counts of fraud and conspiracy and one count of bank fraud and three counts of lying to banks in a separate case stemming from his personal banking. Skilling was convicted of 19 counts of fraud, conspiracy, insider trading and lying to auditors and acquitted of nine counts of insider trading. Of the ex-Enron executives who pleaded guilty, two have served or are serving their prison sentences. Former Enron treasurer Ben Glisan Jr. is slated to be released from prison in September to spend the last four months of his term confined at home. He testified against his former bosses. He pleaded guilty in September 2003 to conspiracy for creating financial structures to hide losses, which Lay and Skilling argued were proper. He was sentenced to the maximum five years, but shaved more than a year off for good behavior credit and completion of an alcohol treatment program. Fastow’s wife, Lea, finished a yearlong prison term in July 2005. She pleaded guilty in 2004 to a misdemeanor tax crime for helping her husband hide ill-gotten income from his Enron schemes. Fastow will go into his Aug. 28 sentencing hearing having already agreed to serve the maximum 10-year term. He pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy and was the most-anticipated prosecution witness in their trial. Causey knows he’s likely to serve between five and seven years. He is to be sentenced in August. He agreed to serve seven years, but prosecutors could recommend he serve only five if satisfied with his help. He did not testify in the Lay-Skilling case, though he was on the defense witness list. But the rest face anywhere from probation to the maximum penalty of their crimes – a range of three to 15 years, depending on the felon. Their cases are spread between six Houston federal judges. Several who testified in the Lay-Skilling case or other Enron trials said they hoped they wouldn’t serve prison time. At least one, former top Fastow lieutenant Michael Kopper, faces a sentencing judge who hinted last year that he won’t get his wish. Kopper testified in the 2004 fraud and conspiracy trial of four former Merrill Lynch & Co. executives and two former midlevel Enron executives regarding a loan from the brokerage disguised as a sale of three Nigerian power barges so Enron could appear to meet earnings targets. Five defendants were convicted and one was acquitted. During his testimony, Kopper acknowledged his thievery and scheming gained him more than $16 million in cash in addition to lavish salary and bonus packages. He forfeited or surrendered his right to $12 million when he became the first ex-Enron executive to cut a plea deal, admitting to two counts of conspiracy in August 2002. U.S. District Judge Ewing Werlein last year imposed sentences ranging from 2 years to three years and 10 months in prison for the five barge felons. He said at the time the barge deal was a “rather small and relatively benign in the constellation of the Enron frauds,” and Glisan’s sentence as well as the 10 years awaiting Fastow were “benchmarks” for those who committed more widespread and serious crimes. The judge didn’t mention Kopper by name, but his comments seemed to indicate Kopper could face more time in prison than the barge defendants because he had admittedly played a bigger role in Enron frauds. Kopper’s combined conspiracy counts carry a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison, and he is slated to be sentenced in late September. Sam Buell, a former prosecutor with the Justice Department’s Enron Task Force who is a visiting professor at the University of Texas School of Law, said prosecutor recommendations for leniency almost always prompt a “significant reduction” in sentences as prescribed by federal sentencing guidelines. But those are just guidelines, so judges can impose whatever punishments they see fit. “I do expect some unevenness in sentencing in the Enron-related cases because, contrary to the practice in some districts, the cases have not all been assigned to a single judge,” Buell said. “Of course, they will be watching what each other are doing, but … they surely won’t let consistency stand in the way of doing what they think is right,” he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
