Child Care and Protection Agency probing child’s living arrangements

first_img…as Police searches for suspectThe Guyana Police Force is currently hunting a man who allegedly grabbed eight-year-old Anellie Hoyte and forced her into a dark coloured car as she was about to enter the Tuschen Primary School’s compound on Wednesday last. This is being done in conjunction with the Child Care and Protection Agency (CC&PA) as they investigate the living arrangements of the minor.Anellie HoyteShe was found in the care of her father’s great aunt at North East La Penitence, Georgetown on Monday. The minor has since been taken into State custody and according to the head of the CC&PA, Ann Greene, they have since launched an investigation to determine what transpired and the state of care afforded to the minor by her mother.It was reported that a relative abused Hoyte a few years ago but when asked, Greene indicated that the Agency is yet to receive such information, noting that they have only now begun their investigation.The child was abducted at about 09:00h on Wednesday last, reportedly as she was about to enter the school’s compound. She was grabbed from behind by a male and placed in a parked, dark coloured car, which then sped away.Students milling outside of the school witnessed the incident and quickly reported what transpired to a teacher, who then made contact with the child’s mother and the incident was reported to the Leonora Police Station. According to the child, the male took her to the Vreed-en-Hoop junction in a dark coloured car and left her there. She then boarded a route 32 minibus, travelled to Georgetown and was seen by friends of relatives who took her to the North East La Penitence area.Her mother, Alisha Marcus, related that her husband died just over two months ago, and his mother, who resides overseas, has since allegedly been attempting to take her daughter from her. In her attempts to so do, it is alleged that the child’s paternal grandmother made contact with the Welfare Office in Guyana, where she accused Marcus of being an unfit mother.The worried mother of three explained that a group of welfare officers had carried out an investigation of the woman’s allegations and found them to be untrue.However, the grandmother, Mrs Hoyte (only name given), vehemently denied playing a part in the abduction of the minor. She said the child was placed in her care a few years ago after it was discovered that a relative of her mother abused Anellie.She said the issue was reported to the Police and the welfare officers granted her temporary care of the minor but alleges that the child was coerced into moving back with her mother.Mrs Hoyte explained that she was informed that her granddaughter was found wandering the streets at around 20:00h last Wednesday and that was the reason she was taken to North East La Penitence.Investigations are still ongoing as the child remains in State care.last_img read more

Head Teacher, medical officer breached protocol

first_imgSchools vaccination programme…disciplinary actions recommendAn investigation into the recent incident where several pupils of the Lochaber Primary School in West Canje, Berbice, were given vaccines without the consent of their parents has revealed that both the school’s Head Teacher and the medical officer who administered the vaccines did not adhere to protocols set out by the Education and Health Ministries.Head of the Regional Education Committee Zamal Hussain presented a reported to the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) late last week during which he stated that the acting Regional Education Officer Bhagmatie La Cruz had reported to the Education Committee that two children from Lochaber Primary School fell ill after they were given HPV vaccines.This publication had reported last Sunday that the vaccines were administered on Tuesday and by the next day, several pupils had to be rushed to the New Amsterdam Hospital for treatment. While it is normal for persons to have some side effects to vaccines, the parents of the children had contended that they never gave permission for the vaccine to be administered.Several parents reached out to the media after they were forced to rush their children to the hospital after they fell ill. It was after this occurred that they were informed of the vaccination programme.Hussain told the RDC that the head of the Lochaber Primary breached the protocol whereby she did not ensure that the parental consent forms were signed by parents before the HPV vaccines were administered.Hussain, who also heads the Regional Health Committee, said it was also found that the health worker who administered the vaccines also breached protocol by not seeing the medical cards of the pupils.He said recommendations will be made as it relates to disciplinary actions for both public servants.Director of the Regional Health Services, Jevaughn Stephens said that in collaboration with the Education Ministry, all Head Teachers were invited to a meeting at the Berbice High School, where they were told about the vaccines and given consent forms to give to the parents.last_img read more

first_img2018 Rainforest Waters Senior Nationals Squash C/shipsAlex ArjoonTop seeds Alex Arjoon and Richard Chin highlighted the semi-finals of Saturday night’s pre-finals round at the Georgetown Club Courts as the Senior Squash Championships draw to a close.The pair stole the show in their respective matches, thus setting up a thriller in Sunday’s finals. Despite the brilliance, shot retrieval and athleticism of Nyron Joseph, the unrivalled patience and skill of Chin’s thoughtful, near-perfect execution and fortitude could not be overcome.In a punishing five-game thriller, the lengthy rallies, interspersed with what would have at other times been sure winners, forced full use of the court and both players’ abilities.Chin’s far from easy start saw an 11-5 first game victory, and his second closing in at 11-8.  Turning the tables, Joseph answered back in the exact same vein with 11-8, 11-5 set wins before Chin closed off with a dominant 11-2 display.The audience were silent for the most part – in awe, but the unison of the gasps, sounds of disbelief and sheer respect, for both players were evidence of their understanding that they were bearing  witness to pure genius match play.Richard ChinIn the other main draw match of the night, Arjoon held off a spirited Jason Khalil in a four-match bout, which ended in an 11-7, 11-4, 5-11, 11-5 victory for Arjoon.

Use plot data to make good decisions

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest As harvest continues across the Eastern Corn Belt, seed companies, universities, and growers will have the chance to compile and analyze data from yield testing. One of the most important decisions a farmer will face all year is deciding what variety to plant and in which field to plant it. To ensure that the best possible decision is made next spring, it is critical to spend some time looking at yield data. While reviewing data is critical, knowing how to determine whether it is accurate and useful is equally important. Below are some tips for using data to make sound planting decisions next spring.Look for replicated dataDon’t rely on yield results from one strip plot on a farm or from a single plot location. Look for data from randomized tests that are repeated multiple times and across multiple locations. Replications in testing increase the reliability of the data.For strip plot data, was a “tester” used?Strip plots planted on farms can cover large areas of a field. In many fields in the Eastern Corn Belt there are several soil types. If a plot crosses several soil types how can you be sure it is accurate? By planting a “tester” variety between each entry in the plot, you can calculate adjusted yields based on the variability of the tester yield across the plot. This ensures more accurate data.Look for consistencyAccording to Bob Nielsen, Purdue Extension Agronomist, “Documented consistency in yield performance is still the key to success in selecting hybrids that will perform well in your farming operation.” When choosing a variety based on plot data, it is important to look for consistent performance — across several plot locations and between multiple years. Choose varieties that consistently performed well across multiple years, in several locations, and different growing conditions.Statistical significanceOn published plot data look for foot notes that indicate the least statistically significant yield difference, or LSD. In many plots, the performance of the top five or 10 varieties may not be statistically different. Although there are small differences in yield, statistical analysis of the data indicates that all varieties within the LSD have an equal chance of winning the plot.While plot data can be very useful in making decisions, some plot data is significantly more accurate and reliable. The key to getting the most out of yield data is having the ability to sort through the large amounts of information to identify the data that most accurately and reliably represents crop performance.last_img read more
