Classes suspended until Wednesday at Mae’s schools

first_img…after bomb threats madeMae’s schools on Monday were forced to suspend classes until Wednesday after threats of bombing were made to the educational institution over the weekend via social media.According to a statement issued by the school’s administration, the duration of the suspended classes is uncertain.“The extent of this shutdown is uncertain at this time. As soon as the logistics are in place for the resumption of classes, you will be informed accordingly via print and electronic media” the school’s administration stated.Even though the Guyana Police Force stated that there is no real significancebehind the issued threats, the school is taking no chances as it posited that safety and security of the students and staffs are of much importance.When this publication visited the school on Monday, parents were seen briskly entering the school’s compound to collect their children. Police personnel were also present at the scene where they brought out a sniffer dog to conduct a clean search of the school’s premises to ensure that no harmful devices were planted.The school’s shutdown affected students from playgroup to the secondary department.Last week, parents of students attending School of the Nations protested at the Public Security Ministry’s office in Brickdam, Georgetown, after similar threats were issued to the school’s administration but not much information was forthcoming from the police.It was related by the parents that they are willing to give a reward to anyone with information which would lead to the arrest of the proprietors so as to be sure that their children’s lives are not at risk.The Guyana Police Force is investigating. This is the fifth educational institution to have been disrupted by bomb threats.last_img read more

Arsenal’s Mkhitaryan to miss Europa League final over safety fears

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal’s Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will miss the Europa League final over safety fears © IKIMAGES/AFP / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, May 21 – Arsenal’s Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will miss the Europa League final against Chelsea in Baku amid fears over his safety.Mkhitaryan’s well-being was a concern for Arsenal due to the tense political dispute between Armenia and final hosts Azerbaijan. The Premier League club have decided against Mkhitaryan travelling with the rest of Unai Emery’s squad for next Wednesday’s game.“We are very disappointed to announce that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will not be travelling with the squad for our UEFA Europa League final against Chelsea,” an Arsenal statement announced on Tuesday.“We have thoroughly explored all the options for Micki to be part of the squad but after discussing this with Micki and his family we have collectively agreed he will not be in our travelling party.”Azerbaijan’s ambassador to the UK, Tahir Taghizadeh, had insisted Mkhitaryan would be free from any threat of violence, but it was reported the star didn’t believe he would be safe on the pitch.“Having considered all the current options, we had to take the tough decision for me not to travel with the squad to the UEL Final against Chelsea,” Mkhitaryan tweeted.“It’s the kind of game that doesn’t come along very often for us players and I must admit, it hurts me a lot to miss it. I will be cheering my teammates on! Let’s bring it home.”UEFA, European football’s governing body, insisted they had done all they could to ensure Mkhitaryan’s safety in Baku.“Working alongside Arsenal FC, UEFA sought and received assurances regarding the player’s safety in Azerbaijan from the highest authorities in the country,” a UEFA statement read.“As a result of these guarantees, a comprehensive security plan was developed and given to the club.“While the club acknowledges the efforts that UEFA and the Azeri government have gone to in this matter, we respect the personal decision not to travel with the player.”Mkhitaryan had featured in 11 games during the Europa League campaign and his absence will be a big blow as Arsenal look for the victory they need to qualify for next season’s Champions League.“We have written to UEFA expressing our deep concerns about this situation,” the Arsenal statement added.“We’re also very sad that a player will miss out on a major European final in circumstances such as this, as it is something that comes along very rarely in a footballer’s career.“Micki has been a key player in our run to the final so this is a big loss for us from a team perspective.”Armenia captain Mkhitaryan skipped the Gunners’ Europa League fixture against Qarabag in October because of tensions caused by a dispute over the Nagorny Karabakh region.Azerbaijan and Armenia have feuded over Nagorny Karabakh since Armenian separatists seized the territory in a war that claimed about 30,000 lives in the early 1990s.A ceasefire was agreed in 1994 but the two countries remain locked in a bitter dispute with frequent exchanges of fire, and tensions are such that Mkhitaryan also did not travel to Azerbaijan with former club Borussia Dortmund for a Europa League match against Galaba FK in 2015.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Death: It’s not pretty or sinful. It’s a fact of life

first_imgTwo years ago, my grandmother announced to her three daughters that she was thinking about dying. Not just thinking about whether it would hurt, whether angels really have harps, or whether there’s ice cream in the afterlife? She was thinking about helping it along. She said she didn’t have much to live for anymore, felt isolated and useless. So she planned to stop eating and drinking after her impending 91st birthday. Age had robbed her of so many of the things she’d loved and enjoyed in life. First, her husband, my grandfather, then so many of her good friends at the Claremont retirement community where she’d lived for two decades. Her body was failing as well. In California, the discussion is about to go public. The catalyst is an Assembly bill co-sponsored by Van Nuys Democrat Lloyd Levine called the Compassionate Choices Act, which is expected to come up for committee discussion in early April. From the cleverly euphemistic name of the bill, you can’t really tell that it’s about death. Modeled after Oregon’s 1997 Death with Dignity Act, AB 651 would give people who have been diagnosed as terminally ill, with six or fewer months to live, the right to obtain a lethal dose of barbiturates from their doctors with the intent to end their lives. As far groundbreaking law goes, it will affect a small portion of society. What it does do, however, is open the door to an uncomfortable and unpleasant discussion about how we allow individuals to control their own deaths and the way we allow them to control their lives. The absolutists on both sides are already mustering their forces to shut down the debate before it gets going. Opponents say society has no right to determine which lives aren’t worth living (except, I guess, for those on Death Row) and that only God has the right to take life. Considering we happily thwart the will of God every day through things like pacemakers and penicillin, it’s an argument that needs to fade like Y2K hysteria. With the bill’s silly name, it’s clear proponents are cloaking the debate in a disingenuous touchy-feely, death-can-be-beautiful kind of thing. Controlling death is neither beautiful nor a sin. It is, however, a fact of life. And we owe it to ourselves and the people who we love to start discussing this honestly and free of all of the polarizing rhetoric.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 She had been going deaf for years and now could barely hear. People were constantly shouting at her: “HI GRANDMOM! WHAT’S NEW?” Her eyesight was going, too, making it hard to watch movies or read books or write. Then when an infection forced the amputation of one leg above the knee, this once-world traveler was suddenly permanently immobilized. The family was, of course, shocked and saddened. And my mother and aunts found themselves upset and conflicted, trying to maintain a balance of supporting my grandmother’s right to control the circumstance of her death and urging her to continue to live. I’m happy to say that my grandmother decided not to hasten her death after all. She found reasons to go on, like the birth of her first great-grandchild and, oddly, the true story of a disabled man who won the right to an assisted suicide, as portrayed in the controversial film, “The Sea Inside.” I tell my grandmother’s story not to make a political point about the right to die, but because I suspect that many people have a similar tale about their grandparents or father or mother or husband or wife. Considering how science and technology have extended our natural lives to amazing, and sometimes disturbing, lengths. It’s no surprise, then, if the subject of controlling death is coming up a lot more often in family discussions. last_img read more

Don’t Just Sit There; Evolve

first_imgHave you ever wondered why your body doesn’t evolve?  After all, it is kind of like a population of trillions of organisms.  Why shouldn’t it follow the rules of natural selection?  Philip Ball asked this question in News@Nature recently.  “Evolution is usually thought of as something that happens to whole organisms,” he teased.  “But there’s no fundamental reason why, for multicelled organisms, it shouldn’t happen within a single organism too.”    So why haven’t you evolved into something else by now?  The answer is as fascinating as it is unexpected: your body works overtime to keep you from evolving:It’s not easy making a human.  Getting from a fertilized egg to a full-grown adult involves a near-miracle of orchestration, with replicating cells acquiring specialized functions in just the right places at the right times.  So you’d think that, having done the job once, our bodies would replace cells when required by the simplest means possible.    Oddly, they don’t.  Our tissues don’t renew themselves by mere copying, with old skin cells dividing into new skin cells and so forth.  Instead, they keep repeating the laborious process of starting each cell from scratch.  Now scientists think they know why: it could be nature’s way of making sure that we don’t evolve as we grow older.And it’s a good thing the body prevents you from evolving.  Ball explains that mutants would have a selective advantage to hijack your other cells without doing any work: “mutant cells that don’t do their specialized job so well tend to replicate more quickly than non-mutants, and so gain a competitive advantage, freeloading off the others,” he explained.  “In such a case, our wonderfully wrought bodies could grind to a halt.”    My, what would Charles Darwin think of that. This is too funny.  Not only did the pro-evolutionist writer Philip Ball knock off another Darwinian concept in the pro-Darwin rag Nature, he praised our “wonderfully wrought bodies” with their “near-miracle of orchestration” in language that would warm the heart of any believer in intelligent design.  My, what would Phillip Johnson think of that.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
