The semifinals have double dates, as they will be played as a traditional tie, with round trip.Is there VAR in the Copa del Rey?The first three rounds have not had VAR, due to the difficulty of installing in the fields of modest equipment the technology required so that the members can visualize the controversial actions on the lawn.

The moment of truth arrives and the idea promoted by Luis Rubiales continues its course: once again, the qualifiers will be played a single game at the modest house, which gives rise to the continuing surprises that have caught thousands and thousands of viewers on TVs. The draw, which will be held this Friday from 1:00 pm in the City of Soccer in Las Rozas, will match the survivors for the eight places in the quarterfinals.Once again, the draw will have conditions. In other words, the modest will play against the First Division teams, with the field factor in favor. In addition, and unlike the round of 16 draw, the three of the Spanish Super Cup lose privileges and they will be part of the same hype as the rest of LaLiga Santander clubs. It’s more, Real Madrid and Barcelona, who advanced to the eighth Cup with some suffering and at the expense of Unionists and Ibiza, they could face if the chance of the balls considers it so.So that, there will be three bombs in the draw: one with the First Division teams, another with the remaining Second and other with the Second B (Badajoz and Cultural Leonesa). Yes, there is finally that of Second B, although he will only have two balls because the rest of the classified for sixteenths failed to surprise him in his confrontation. However, last season, with the old format still present, there wasn’t even a single third category team in the eighths. There is also a significant change with respect to LaLiga SmartBank: in 2018-19, only Sporting de Gijón was classified; while now they will fight with the best on Real Zaragoza, Mirandés, Rayo and Tenerife.Yes, the conditions of the draw force the six survivors of Second and Second B to face each other with a First Division. In other words, direct duels between Zaragoza, Rayo, Mirandés and Tenerife, for example, cannot occur on a morning that promises to be full of emotion. Real Madrid – Barcelona, different derbies, more images of the greats in Badajoz or Cultural Leonesa fields, Basque duel between Real and Athletic … Multiple combinations and the endorsement of the single game as a reinforcement of the emotion that everything is decided within 90 minutes.

House Speaker J. Alex Tyler has proposed US$73 million to be placed in the 2014/2015 National Budget for direct district impact projects across the country.According to Speaker Tyler, the intent is to fund roads, schools, clinics and other meaningful projects at local government levels in order to foster developmental activities in rural areas.Addressing the opening session of the 3rd sitting of the 53rd National Legislature, the House Speaker pleaded with his colleagues both in the chambers of the House of Representatives and the Senate to see the need to allot such critical resources to the 73 electoral districts.“This is separate and distinct from the County Development (CDF) Fund. This is one of the ways we believe that much needed development resources can be decentralized,” said Mr. Tyler.According to Speaker Tyler appropriating the necessary funding would tackle several challenges facing the interior parts of the country including, “deplorable roads and bridges, poor health facilities and schools lacking the most basic facilities, which can be found in most schools around the world.”Previous budgets in which appropriations were made for infrastructure including schools, roads, and clinics have not been able to make significant impact on rural dwellers. From this point, appropriation for infrastructural spending shall be approved in ballpark figures ( an estimate arrived at by guesswork or conjecture); and, implementation of each project so identified, be clearly and specifically vetted on a project- by-project development basis and approved by the Legislature before final appropriation and implementation can be made.”The Bomi County lawmaker highlighted the usage of US$5 million for direct district impact projects implemented by the Executive Branch as reflected in the 2013/2014 National Budget.He maintained that the importance of said allotment benefits the people; “some of whom, I dare say, have never before in their entire lives, felt the influence of their government, going as far back as 1847, and the founding of the Republic.”Speaker Tyler acknowledged the weakness of the Legislature in performing their Legislative oversight duties, but added that their 3rd sitting would be as robust as possible.

Dear Editor,Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo overstepped his authority when he announced Government’s commitment to “giving teeth” to the CCJ’s ruling that, in Guyana, men are free to disguise themselves as women, and women are free to disguise themselves as men, in public.The Prime Minister has perhaps forgotten that he and his Government are accountable to the 800,000 people of Guyana, and not to the seven judges of the CCJ.Whether or not the CCJ’s ruling is right is irrelevant, because the Government of Guyana has bound itself to abide by that ruling. However, the CCJ cannot, and will never, usurp the sovereignty of the elected Parliament of Guyana.The CCJ is limited to interpreting the laws of Guyana. Our Government is tasked with effectively writing the laws of Guyana within the context of our Constitution, which itself is subject to amendment.The CCJ’s ruling is a blatant, backward, retrograde backdoor step to the introduction of proposed legalisation of same-sex marriages and similar human relations, which are beneath the dignity of Guyana’s dogs, cows, cats and rats.Instead of giving teeth to enforce the CCJ’s ruling, the Prime Minister should be rallying the legal minds of his Government and civic society to legislatively protect the socio-economic and spiritual fabric and values of Guyana, by plugging the Constitutional loopholes through which the CCJ has inserted its pernicious ruling.Cross-dressing, buggery, homosexuality and their affiliates are all offensive to the values of Guyana’s Christian and Muslim majority; to the majority of its Hindu population, and to the foundational principles on which Guyana’s greatness is built.On the other hand, every Guyanese enjoys the inalienable right and freedom to act behind closed doors in a manner of his or her choosing, so long as the exercise of those rights and freedoms do not offend, invade, or wrong the rights and freedoms of others.The laws of Guyana must always protect Guyana’s vulnerable minority from the tyranny of the majority. However, it is palpably abhorrent for our laws to promote the tyranny of the large majority by a small minority.We value our women for who they are, and for what they bring to our society. We value our men for who they are, and for what they bring to our society. When a small minority of our men fail to value themselves for their own inherent self-worth, we must lovingly aid their restoration, not empower them to corrupt and demoralise the rest of our society. This must be the underlying objective of our elected Government: to enhance the values that have made Guyana great.Sincerely,Phyllis J JordanCaretaker-CouncillorConstituency 4; &Convenor, “OperationRestoration”

…as PPP Commissioner voices more concernsDespite a meeting convened on Wednesday by the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) to discuss issues pertaining to the Commission’s readiness for the upcoming elections, there has not been any progress thus far, according to People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Commissioner Robeson Benn.Speaking to the local press following the engagement, the former PPP Government Minister said a lot of time was wasted on Wednesday as he dubbed the meeting unproductive. According to him, the timelines for training of polling agents were discussed but no decision was taken.It was suggested during the meeting that trainers and evaluators undergo 14 days of intense training, but Benn said he objected to that proposal, explaining that it could be done in two days instead.“Sixty-five days for training of staff and evaluators? You don’t need this time. Over 5000 of these same people, just over two and half months ago did the same thing. So, there is no need for full gamut of training,” the Commissioner said while arguing that this again is another tactic to delay things.Benn said it is apparent that the intention is to lose enough time of the 90 days beyond March 19.He reminded that the voters’ list remains valid until April 30, and while the Government parties continue to argue that new names will need to be added, this could be done by way of simple registration, and through the Claims and Objection period, as was catered for at the recent Local Government Elections.As it relates to having proper financing to carrying out a General and Regional Election, Benn said while there are finances for house-to-house registration, based on the no-confidence vote, that will no longer be necessary since the list is still valid and the monies could be otherwise utilized to conduct the elections.While it was discussed during the previous meeting of Commissioners that there will be a need for additional funding to undertake elections, the PPP-appointed Commissioner explained that Chief Elections Officer Keith Lowenfield has not reported back on the advice he sought on the issue.However, Benn maintained that it is normal for statutory Government agencies to have finances wired. He said GECOM has done it in past elections and he sees no difficulty why it cannot be done now.The PPP-appointed Commissioner said there have been refusals, unwillingness or non-appearances to come to decisions from some commissioners, among other issues.“And despite us saying on January 22 that the Commission must prepare for elections, as mandated by the Constitution based on the no-confidence vote, we are still to be told whether they would be in an election mode,” he added.Benn is convinced that GECOM has taken certain actions in line with an overall strategy geared towards not having an election on March 19, 2019, which was related to the Carter Center during their visit.When questioned as to whether he thinks a vote should be taken on the current stalemate, Benn said is for the Chairman, retired Justice James Patterson to decide on.On the other hand, Government-appointed Commissioner Vincent Alexander said there was nothing new to report, except to say that Benn had a presentation before the Commissioners.The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 19, 2019.The parliamentary Opposition has pointed to Government’s attempts to delay the holding of the constitutionally mandated elections following the no-confidence resolution of December 21, 2018. The three-month time frame in which the polls should be held was validated in the interpretation by acting Chief Justice Roxane George, who declared that the motion was validly passed 33-32. GECOM has since been unforthcoming about its preparedness for the mandatory elections despite being mandated by the Constitution of Guyana to hold elections within three months of the passage of a no-confidence motion. In fact, during a meeting with both Opposition and Government Chief Whips, the Chairman of GECOM, retired Justice James Patterson abruptly ended a meeting on the Commissions preparedness after he was pressed for answers.Already international pressure on the country has mounted. Only recently, United Nations (UN) Resident Coordinator, Mikiko Tanaka urged the State to demonstrate its integrity and respect the Constitution as she reminded that building a peaceful and just society requires respect for the rule of law and confidence in national institutions. Her calls were followed by similar sentiments by other members of the diplomatic community.
Corps officials say the new regulations’ intent is to deter developers from building on larger areas of wetland by offering them smaller ones. For example, formal reviews will now be required for fills greater than 300 feet along streams that flow only part of the year. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – The Bush administration will allow some construction of homes, shops, schools, prisons, hospitals and other buildings in flood plains without formal environmental reviews, despite the lessons of Hurricane Katrina. New regulations issued Friday by the Army Corps of Engineers also let homebuilders and other developers skip the reviews before filling in or altering the course of some small streams. The waivers will apply only to developments that fill in less than 300 feet of a stream or less than a half-acre of wetlands, ponds or other waters. Another part of the regulations, approved in coordination with other federal agencies and the White House, waives the formal environmental reviews entirely for coal companies when they bury or reroute streams with their mining wastes. Mines, however, will still have to get written determinations from district corps engineers that dumping their wastes will have a minimal impact on the environment.
