Dear Editor,Electricity cost in the UK is about 14.5p per kWh (about $36.5 per kWh). While in Guyana it is about $52.5 per kWh. When we take into account the loss due to electricity theft, defective meters and line losses (which account for about 30 per cent), we see that the electricity cost is roughly the same as the commercial losses and is being passed onto consumers in Guyana (70 per cent of $52.5 is about $36.75).What this means is that GPL should be breaking even and not racking up losses. Clearly, something is wrong in the operation of GPL when it is racking up losses as well as when there are numerous blackouts.Customers not paying their bills is indicative of them not having huge disposable income which is symptomatic of the Guyana economy not performing well.Another indication of the Guyana economy not performing well is the rise in the non-performing loans rate.Yours faithfully,Sean Ori
A health advocacy group, National Health Advocacy Network of Liberia is calling on the government to correct mistakes that led to almost two weeks of strike from the nation’s health workers.The group came out with the request following two days of strategic planning held to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.The call by the group—for government to give preference to the Health sector—raised the specter (ghost) of a strike action by health workers across the country that led to a serious health crisis last month.According to the group, low incentives for health workers is contributing to the increasing flight of experienced medical practitioners to other countries. They listed regular shortages of needed drugs, and poorly equipped medical facilities as other hurdles constantly faced in the health-care sector.In a statement, the health advocacy group called on government to respect the Abuja Declaration which, among other things, calls for commitment to the Health sector by increasing financial allotments in order to fight infant mortality.As June approaches for the passage of the fiscal budget, the NHANL is of the view that government remains aware of the plight of health workers and is investigating the causes of problems they face in order to address them.Briefing the Daily Observer on some of the plights of health workers, a representative of the group said that health workers have complained of low incentives, lack of social security benefits, and discrepancies in salaries for years.On the issue of salary discrepancy, the group noted that certain people are given preferential treatment by receiving salaries in US Dollars while others receive theirs in less valuable Liberian Dollars.In addition, the group noted that government only provides a single uniform for health workers when they should receive three sets per person.“A quality public health care system is critical for improving life expectancy and has numerous social and economic benefits; they include national savings on amounts that would otherwise be expended on expensive foreign health trips,” the group emphasized.The National Health Advocacy Network of Liberia is also planning a full documentary to map health challenges in Montserrado County.The research would focus on access to quality public health services and facilities in Montserrado County.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

1 Muhamed Besic’s injury is a big blow to Everton Everton have been dealt a big blow just a week before the start of the new Premier League season, with news that Muhamed Besic is facing six months out with a knee injury.The Bosnia midfielder suffered the problem during Wayne Rooney’s testimonial at Old Trafford on Wednesday, where he was forced off just 12 minutes after coming on.“Six months out! #Devastated,” the 23-year-old wrote on his Twitter account on Friday.Besic, who joined the Toffees from Ferencvaros for £4million in the summer of 2014, has been blighted by injuries during his two years at Goodison Park.Last season a hamstring injury sustained against Chelsea in September sidelined him for four months .He made his comeback on Boxing Day but a recurrence of the problem within a month then put him out again until March.Speaking to Sportske in Bosnia Besic’s father Meho said: “I spoke with Muhamed. He was disappointed and just crushed because of injury.”Besic’s injury boosts the chances of new £7.1million arrival from Aston Villa Idrissa Gueye – manager Ronald Koeman’s only outfield signing since taking over in June – playing a major part in the first half of the season.Gueye will make his debut in the home friendly against Espanyol on Saturday but in light of Besic’s injury Koeman may have to dip into the transfer market for reinforcements.
SANTA CLARITA – Sheriff’s detectives are seeking the public’s help in locating a young man they suspect in three recent convenience store robberies. Surveillance video taken Sunday at the Shell gas station and mini-mart at 26801 Bouquet Canyon Road shows the robber, an African-American in his early 20s, who stands about 5 feet 6 inches in height and weighs 130 pounds, standing next to the clerk. During that robbery, the thief brandished a semiautomatic pistol and took $60 in cash. The same man is believed to have committed armed robberies using a knife as a weapon at the 7-Eleven at 27761 Bouquet Canyon Road on Oct. 16, where he took $80 in cash, and the Circle K at 28005 Seco Canyon Road on Oct. 14, where he took $120 in cash and a large amount of cigarettes. “We’re asking people to call us if they see this individual so we can apprehend him,” Detective Pat O’Neill said. “They should consider him armed and dangerous, especially since he’s gone from using a knife to a gun in the last incident.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

On October 21, the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the nonprofit Cold Climate Housing Research Center (CCHRC) will announce the winner of a design competition aimed at advancing green residential construction in cold climates. The contestants are teams of UAF students, and their assignment is to develop green design strategies for building net-zero-energy housing in an Arctic environment.The winning team, to be selected by CCHRC experts, will be honored during an award ceremony. But the real prize will be the incorporation of at least some of the winning team’s proposals in the development of a “sustainable village” on the UAF campus.The cold road aheadAs UAF explains it in a press release, the goal is to build the first cluster of four four-bedroom homes by the summer of 2012 and incorporate what is learned from each phase of the project into the design and construction of successive phases. While a lot is already known about how to make buildings in Arctic climates comfortable, the UAF Sustainable Village, as the project is called, aims to incorporate a wide range of green building practices.“We still need to solve critical design and technology problems related to building in this climate. The Sustainable Village will help solve those problems, while providing hands-on learning and fostering a community of students who are committed to sustainability,” said Jack Hébert, president and CEO of CCHRC.The CCHRC/UAF team will focus on several issues, including siting, materials, wastewater, and power, with the aims of minimizing environmental impact and maximizing energy efficiency. The goal is to achieve net-zero energy in buildings with low construction, operating, and maintenance costs.The village will incorporate renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and biomass, and will use local and recycled materials whenever possible. Researchers also want to test innovative wastewater systems, including gray-water recycling and on-site sewage treatment.
