It was also United’s 13th defeat against a newly promoted side in the Premier League, their first since losing 5-3 to Leicester last season.They face a Norwich City side that held Everton to a 1-1 draw last Saturday, their fourth league game without a win and that saw them drop into the relegation zone.Norwich have lost on their last five league visits to Old Trafford. In a total of seven Premier League trips there they have lost six and drawn one. Overall, they have won just three times in 28 visits, while losing 19 and drawing six. They last won there in August 1989 in the old First Division.last_img read more

Caretaker Govt forging ahead with passage of Ganja Bill in Parliament

first_imgAlthough the Government should be in “caretaker” mode in keeping with the Constitution, the Alliance For Change (AFC) faction of the coalition has announced plans to go to Parliament to approve changes to several pieces of legislation before the end of the year.AFC Chairman Raphael TrotmanAFC Chairman and former Speaker of the National Assembly, Raphael Trotman has declared that the Government would be going to Parliament soon to approve changes to the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Act, to ensure persons caught with small amounts of marijuana in their possession would not be jailed.This is the latest in a series of defiant moves by the coalition Administration against a Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) ruling.“We expect that we will have sittings of the National Assembly before it is dissolved and it is our intention to have this Bill passed into law. That is, that you are entitled to have up to 30 grams which is equivalent to roughly one ounce without being penalised with an incarceration or a custodial sentence as it is normally termed. Possession will remain an offence; however, it will not lead to you going to jail and we have looked at just a mere fine and perhaps community service or something of that nature,” he told the media during an AFC press briefing on Thursday.The CCJ ruling gives effect to Article 161 of the Constitution of Guyana which stipulates that Cabinet should have already resigned, Parliament been dissolved and elections forthcoming. Cabinet recently approved a proposal to change the law to allow persons with small amounts of marijuana to be given alternative sentencing, instead of going to jail.Meanwhile, even as the AFC wants to go to Parliament soon, Trotman said his party expected that elections will and should be held before the end of 2019.“The Constitution is preserved despite the ruling of the Court, that it is only the President of Guyana that can issue a proclamation announcing an election and naming a date for those elections. There are certain consequential things that would be done. Parliament would have to be dissolved…”Meanwhile, the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) has released its proposal for consequential orders in which it submitted that the CCJ order elections to be held by September 18, 2019 and urged the regional court to protect Guyana from constitutional abuse.The regional court is expected to hand down its consequential orders today. On Wednesday, the Opposition released to the media its full submissions on how it believes the country should proceed now that it is confirmed that the Government was defeated by a No-Confidence Motion (NCM) last year.In the submission, the Opposition noted that the Court should order that the Cabinet, including the President, should have resigned but remain in office to hold elections within three months of June 18, 2019 when the CCJ had ruled that the December 21, 2018 passage of the NCM was valid.last_img read more

“I don’t know about apology” – AG

first_imgJudge threat allegations…defends his actions in courtAlthough Justice Franklin Holder has called on Attorney General Basil Williams to apologise for his outbursts in court, the State’s chief legal adviser has expressed an unwillingness to do so.“What? I don’t know about apology,” Williams declared on Wednesday during a brief press conference when prompted by reporters on whether he would heed the Judge’s desires and issue an apology.Justice Holder had written to the acting Chancellor of the Judiciary, Justice Yonette Cummings-Edwards complaining of the behaviour of the Attorney General during the hearing of a prominent court matter involving trade unionist Carvil Duncan.But Williams maintained his innocence as he continued to cast blame on his predecessor, Anil Nandlall for causing Justice Holder to abruptly walk out the courtroom – even though the Judge has since clarified that the issue stemmed from the Attorney General’s “egregious” and “disrespectful” behaviour during the court proceedings.“Nandlall was the one who caused the problem…we can’t allow Nandlall to create this problem and leave it unresolved. The Judge and I will resolve this issue,” Williams stated, in contradiction to the Judge’s explanation, which was published in snippets in the State-owned newspaper.In fact, the Attorney General even defended his actions and his statements.“Everything I dealt with in that short time was to disabuse the learned Judge’s mind that his interpretation was not (so),” he stated.Williams believed that the Judge fell prey to “transferred frustration” as a result of Nandlall’s “barracking” of nearly three hours.“Perhaps his detaining the learned Judge again as he was preparing to leave the bench, seeking clarity on whether the witness’s answer of ‘no’ was recorded, induced certain misapprehensions in the Judge’s mind in all the circumstances and the Attorney General became the victim of transferred frustration,” Williams said in a statement circulated during the media engagement.But according to articles published in the State newspaper, Justice Holder, in a letter dated March 24, 2017 to Justice Cummings-Edwards, said he “took umbrage to his (Williams’) tone and what he was insinuating, which was in effect that the court was being selective in recording the evidence”.The Judge said Williams responded by saying that the last person who told him what he should not say was a magistrate and he was now dead.“He further said all morning Mr Nandlall disrespecting you and you have not done anything about it,” Holder wrote, adding that he told Williams that this was not a true statement of what had occurred.“This was followed by a most egregious statement by Mr Williams, which is: “I could say what I want to say and when I want to say it; I have always been like that.”At this point, Justice Holder said he left the bench without adjourning the matter. “Immediately after hearing these words, I rose from the bench and went into my chambers. I did not adjourn the matter, nor did I give any instructions to the parties,” Justice Holder outlined. In the letter, he also expressed that the Attorney General should apologise to him in an open court.Nonetheless, Williams said he was prepared to work with the Judge to resolve the issue. In fact, the Attorney General said he would be responding to the complaint in writing.Nandlall – who was Duncan’s lawyer during the court proceeding – had interpreted Williams’ statements as a death threat against the Judge and condemned the Minister’s actions.But, during a press conference Friday last, Williams threatened to file legal action against news outlets that reported on the allegations of him issuing death threats.Meanwhile, the Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) has called on the Guyana Police Force (GPF) to launch an investigation into the allegations.Despite the Attorney General’s pleas of innocence, the PPP insists the matter warrants an extensive probe as it believes the threats should not be viewed in isolation, but in conjunction with other incidents where the Government has attempted to subvert independent offices.last_img read more

Article: Phillip Johnson Still Wields the Wedge

first_imgThe standard-bearer of the Intelligent Design Movement (IDM) since 1991, Berkeley Law Professor Dr. Phillip E. Johnson, still wields his pen like a wedge against Darwinism.  His latest article for Think magazine (The Royal Institute of Philosophy) is reproduced on the Discovery Institute website.  He shares the current status of the movement, his disappointments with the entrenched dogmatism of the scientific elite institutions as well as satisfaction over the victories by design scientists, and reiterates many of the themes for which he is famous.  Memorable line: “The goal of the Intelligent Design Movement is to achieve an open philosophy of science that permits consideration of any explanations toward which the evidence may be pointing.”Adding any comments would be gilding the lily.  Go read it.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
