…as Gaskin admits absence of investment projectsIf the Government were serious about developing the economy, it could have already entered into approximately 50 public/private partnerships as it inches closer to its third year in office. This is according to Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, who observed that the administration has finally admitted that it has no current investment plan or project for the country.Business Minister Dominic Gaskin has admitted that Government has no investment projects to offer to anyone who has the least bit of interest in investing in Guyana. “Investors generally want to know what specific projects we have for them to invest in, and we have none; and therefore we tend to lose the interest of the investor, because there are other countries competing for those limitedOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeoinvestment funds that have tangible investment projects to offer,” he disclosed recently at the Heads of Missions Conference held at the Pegasus Hotel.The minister also admitted that Government is only now looking to develop a portfolio of investment projects. This as the Administration approaches its third year in office.The Opposition Leader was shocked to learn that, after so many months in office, Government has not yet developed a proper plan to generate investments in the local economy. “Gaskin is absolutely right, and I thank him for being honest. They have no investment projects to offer to anyone. So it’s not the illegal economy of the past and drug monies of the past….,” Jagdeo noted.Business Minister Dominic GaskinJagdeo reiterated that the economy is sluggish, and he said it is not because of the absence of drug money, as some may claim, but as per Government’s own admission, the lack of investors in the country. “People are being laid off because sales have collapsed, and that is because Government is reducing aggregate demand by reducing disposal income from people,” he contended.Jagdeo also highlighted that there is a huge demand for public/private partnerships (PPPs) as he chided Government’s slothfulness in capitalising on this opportunity. Gaskin recently said Government has not entered any PPP because there is no framework in place to ensure value for money and that any form of abuse is prevented. The former President is contending that there is no need for a fixed framework. “If the minister is serious, he’d look at an investment opportunity where they need a PPP. They would develop a prospectus, the prospectus would estimate the cost of the project,” he said. According to Jagdeo, the prospectus would also state conditions under which each side would participate, and the benefits to private sectors involved, whether it is guaranteed rate of return or special tax breaks; and then those conditions would be advertised.“They could have done 50 of those by now if they are seriously involved in PPP. It’s a simple thing to be done. It’s just ordinary work to pursue PPP,” he stated.
The museum is a nonprofit organization which was started in 1999 by Matsuda. “The museum will have a huge impact on both the martial arts community, but also the surrounding Santa Clarita community. This is the very first and I would travel from anywhere to see the first martial arts museum and I think other people will as well. This is a rare opportunity and it gives recognition to our community,” Matsuda said. Since 2004, the museum has been a huge traveling exhibit at a variety of expos, conventions and festivals. Stretching from New Jersey, Las Vegas, to mostly Southern California, the museum has been the focal point of most festivals. “Our goal is education. To provide an education for our children, to inform others about the wonderful contributions of the Asian-American community and the positive influences martial arts has had on the West,” Matsuda added. Former Santa Clarita Mayor Laurene Weste and Alarc n have been strong supporters of the museum project. The museum is located at 24406 San Fernando Road, Santa Clarita. For information on the ribbon-cutting opening, please e-mail the museum at info@MAmuseum.com or visit the Web site www.MAmuseum.com, or you can call the museum at its temporary number of (818)355-1109. Adult tickets are $6 and children and seniors are $3. Regular museum days are from Thursday through Sunday. Memberships or tax-deductible donations can be sent to the Martial Arts History Museum at P.O. Box 800668, Santa Clarita, CA 91380. After eight years of hard work and political negotiations, with tremendous support from the community, the world’s first martial arts history museum will be opening its doors on June 2 in the city of Santa Clarita. “This has been a tremendous effort and I’m thrilled that all our years of waiting have turned this into a reality,” said museum founder and president Michael Matsuda. “This is it, the world’s first museum dedicated to Asian martial arts. This is now the home of the martial arts worldwide and home to the official Hall of Fame for the arts. This is a huge accomplishment and I want to thank the whole community for getting behind this effort, especially our volunteers and members.” The ribbon-cutting and door opening will be held on June 2 at 10:30 a.m. with a special Chinese Lion Dancing performance by Sifu Buck Sam Kong’s school of Hollywood. City representatives including Santa Clarita Mayor Marsha McLean, Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alarc n and the previous Museum Hall of Fame members and martial arts film stars will be on hand to cut the ribbon. The nearly 7,000-square-foot museum will focus on the history of Asian martial arts including Chinese, Japanese, Filipino and Korean art forms. The museum will provide a historical look at these amazing art forms tracing back from the Shaolin Temple, the samurai, through the tournaments of the ’60s and ’70s to the films, television shows and even PlayStation games. This is something the whole community can enjoy and learn about the historical impact of Asian martial arts on Western society. A special members-only preview will be held on May 26. Please contact the museum if you plan to attend. Michael Masuda is the founder of the Martial Arts Museum in Santa Clarita.

Football Association CEO Martin Glenn has told talkSPORT the governing body is not afraid to evolve with the times, amid reports of a proposed format change to the famous FA Cup.Claims on Tuesday suggested there are plans in the pipeline to scrap replays and also abolish the current two-legged League Cup semi-finals as teams look to play fewer games in a season.The change is reportedly driven by Premier League teams, who are keen to see ties concluded on the night via extra-time and penalties, but it’s not such good news for lower league teams who value replays as a vital source of extra revenue.The rumours are nothing new, however, as Glenn told talkSPORT earlier in January that the FA are keen to ensure the world’s oldest football competition is not left behind as the Premier League and Champions League continue to grow.“It’s different now, the FA Cup used to be the only games on TV when I was growing up. It was huge,” he told talkSPORT ahead of the third round. “But it’s not like that now.”“We’ve tried to refresh it. I’m not a traditionalist; I think the game has to evolve as people’s needs evolve and if you look over history the FA Cup HAS evolved.“I’m a big believer in keeping it fresh and keeping it modern. I wouldn’t rule out change, provided the changes stick to the principles of thee competition – to give the smaller teams a chance, to get money from the top end down to the bottom and create some great theatre.”The reports also come as no surprise to former Club England managing director Adrian Bevington, who revealed to talkSPORT the FA have been having these conversations ‘for a number of years’.Speaking on the Alan Sports Breakfast, he also advocated the Premier League implementing a winter break as top flight sides struggle to juggle different competitions throughout the campaign.“This sort of conversation has been going on for a number of years within the FA,” Bevington said. “The FA Cup is not what it was to kids growing up 30 years ago. It used to be the one game at the end of the season we all used to love.“The challenge for football in this country is how do we retain what the FA Cup should be so that young people cherish it as opposed to just the Champions League and Premier League?“This is a good debate that they’re having. Personally it’s not so much the midweek timing of the games, I’d just play for 90 minutes and go straight to penalties. Give it something unique.“Also, I think they should find some dates to try and free up at least one week or maybe two, to give the players a short winter break after the New Year.”
TECHNOLOGY: Summer is here and it’s off to the beach for most of us, but what happens if you accidently take your phone for a swim as well? When it happens, it can feel like the end of the world. But it doesn’t have to be.There are plenty of ways to save your smartphone from oblivion. Here’s the Alphatronic step-by-step guide to rescuing your phone from water damage. Because some phones can’t be opened up by owners without undoing the screws, we’ve also got some tips for owners of those handsets too.Switch it offIf the phone still appears to be working after it’s taken a dip, then switch it off immediately. Don’t push any other buttons or keys, as this may cause short circuits within the phone, leading to further internal damage.Remove what you canOpen the SIM card tray and remove it as soon as the phone is off. Modern smartphones usually come with a small pin to open the tray up, but if you’ve lost this or can’t locate it, a sewing needle, paper clip or safety pin will do. If you can remove the back of your smartphone, do so, and take out the battery. Phones from Samsung and LG tend to use microSD cards for storage. These can be located beneath or next to any removable battery, or in a slot along the side of your phone. Make sure you take this out too.Gently dab off any excess waterDon’t be tempted to rub your phone vigorously to get rid of any liquid. Instead, dab excess water with a kitchen towel. If water seems to be leaking from any open ports, carefully dab these too, but don’t shake your phone as this can cause water to travel deeper inside the device towards vital components that could easily stop working when they come into contact with liquid.Get some riceRice soaks up water and it works especially well if you put your phone in a sealable freezer bag and surround it with the stuff. Cover your phone with as much rice as you can squeeze in, seal the bag and leave it somewhere warm like a hotpress for ideally 48 hours. Some companies sell dedicated plastic phone bags, complete with the silica gel packs you find in a box with new shoes, to dry the phone out. Rice combined with low heat works well though and is obviously much easier to lay your hands on.Remove and power upAfter a couple of days, give your phone a go. If it doesn’t turn on, then you need to drop it into us at Alphatronic 38 Port Road Letterkenny 074 91 13445. If you have insurance as part of your contract, your network may be able to provide you with a new device, be aware you will need to pay excess charges. The same applies if your phone is covered under a home contents insurance policy.I’ve got an iPhone, how do I remove the battery?iPhones don’t have a removable battery. In fact, you’ll only be able to get the SIM card out of these phones. The same applies to top of the range models from Samsung. That said, the same rules apply for rescuing these handsets from water damage. So dab off excess water and place the phone in a freezer bag with silica gel or rice and put it somewhere warm like the hotpress as soon as possible.How can I waterproof my phone? Companies such as Otterbox and Griffin sell dedicated waterproof cases for a wide–range of smartphones. They may make your smartphone look bulky, but they’ll protect it from most spillages. These cases are mostly splash proof and would not allow you to submerge your phone in water for sustained periods.The other option is to buy a smartphone with waterproof certification. These phones will have an Ingress Protection (IP) rating. An IP68 certificate means a phone is fully waterproof to a particular depth and for a certain period of time. There are also IP67 certificates for phones which offer a modicum of protection from splashes and brief dunks in the drink. Some Samsung Galaxy models and a number of Sony’s Xperia models have waterproofing as standard and can easily be bought in your local phoneshop.Apple’s iPhones are not waterproof don’t be tempted to see if it can hold up to being immersed as you will regret it.By Sean Bonner – Alphatronic Repair Technician Alphatronic 38 Port Road, Letterkenny, Co Donegal Contact me 074 9113445 or email email@example.comDD TECHNOLOGY TIPS WITH ALPHATRONICS – HOW TO RESCUE A WATER-DAMAGED PHONE was last modified: June 13th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

IRELAND goalie Shay Given has hit back at plans by Scottish fans to target Aiden McGeady and James McCarthy at Celtic Park on Friday night in the Euro 2016 qualifier.The Lifford native says he expects the atmosphere to have all the hostility and venom of an Old Firm derby.But he rounded on the hosts for trying to unsettle the Everton pair James McCarthy and Aiden McGeady. McCarthy was born in Glasgow, McGeady in Falkirk – and both with grandparents from Co Donegal.Former Scotland international Gordon McQueen even urged supporters to give the defectors “a horrible welcome”.However Shay said: “The comments were a bit unfair as some of the Scottish players were born in England but have Scottish parents and that.“It can’t be one rule for Ireland and one rule for others. They are in the exact same situation, so some of the comments were a bit personal and a wee bit over the top. I just think there is no need to go to that sort of level. They are the rules and every country is the same. I think it was unfair on James and Aiden to single them out. “We can’t tell fans what to do or what not to do. I mean, we’re going into the Scotland environment and the Scotland fans can do what they want. Aiden and James are experienced players now and they are fantastic players. Probably the reason we are talking about them is they are such great players. I don’t think they will be put off by any hostility.”Alan McLoughlin, the former Ireland player who was born in Manchester to Irish parents, says other teams try to use it because they are jealous of Ireland’s success.He told John Murray on RTE Radio One this morning that other countries can’t have it both ways.He recalled criticism from the English of his Irish team in 1994 when Ireland played in the World Cup in the USA.“They forgot that John Barnes was born in Jamaica,” he said.
