Chemical spill at GNIC facility forces temporary shutdown

first_imgA chemical spill at the Guyana National Industrial Corporation (GNIC) wharf on Lombard Street, Georgetown, Wednesday morning forced a temporary shutdown of the facility.The area within GNIC where the spill occurredIn updating the media on the issue, the GNIC said that the spilt substance is “Rheduce”, a chemical which is non-hazardous, non-toxic and harmless to human and marine life.Rheduce is used as a thinner and conditioner in the RHELIANT thermally-stable, flat-rheology drilling fluid system. It works to disperse solids in the mud without requiring dilution or changing the synthetic-to-water ratio.Meanwhile, GNIC explained that the container containing the substance was ruptured on Tuesday during the handling of cargo at the facility’s terminal. This resulted in the chemical leaking and accumulating in an area around the container; however, as a result of the delay in the clean-up and rainfall, the substance spread.Sighting the spread, the facility’s terminal was closed.Rain caused the chemical to seep onto the roadway at Lombard Street, Georgetown (CDC photo)“The chemical, which is non-hazardous, non-toxic and harmless to human and marine life, was stored in a designated area. It leaked but accumulated in a small area around the said container. The response action to mop up the substance was awaited. However, the rain came and caused a spread of the substance. There was a panic reaction by customs, resulting in the closure of the terminal,” GNIC noted in a statement.Risk assessmentsNevertheless, a team was deployed from the Civil Defence Commission (CDC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and other agencies to conduct risk assessments and execute the appropriate response, which later led to the clean-up and decontamination of the area.Clean-up efforts at the GNIC Wharf (CDC photo)Meanwhile, Head of CDC, Kester Craig, said that from the assessment, which was conducted in and around the vicinity of GNIC, it was confirmed that a chemical spill occurred between late Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.last_img read more

CAF Confederation Cup holders Mazembe must win to ensure survival

first_img0Shares0000TP Mazembe must defeat visiting Horoya of Guinea to be sure of a quarter-finals place in the CAF Confederation Cup © AFP/File / Agnes BunJOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Jul 6 – CAF Confederation Cup title-holders TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo must defeat visiting Horoya of Guinea this weekend to be sure of a quarter-finals place.Every Group D match between leaders Mazembe, Horoya and third-place SuperSport United of South Africa has been drawn, setting the scene for a thrilling finale. Mazembe and Horoya have nine points, with the Congolese occupying first place on goal difference, and SuperSport seven.The Pretoria outfit complete their mini-league schedule at home to Mounana of Gabon, who have lost all five matches and conceded five goals at home to SuperSport.Should Mazembe and Horoya draw in Lubumbashi and SuperSport win in Atteridgeville, there will be a three-way tie on 10 points.A 0-0 or 1-1 draw in DR Congo would eliminate Mazembe while a 2-2 or higher-scoring stalemate would spell the end for SuperSport.South Africa midfielder and SuperSport captain Dean Furman believes his team are too good to fail at the mini-league stage.“Our back-to-back draws with Mazembe have given us a lot of confidence — we can compete successfully with the giants of African club football,” he told reporters.SuperSport came from two goals behind to draw 2-2 at Mazembe and had the better of a 0-0 deadlock in a return match dominated by defences.“There were a lot of positives for us from outplaying the Confederation Cup title-holders for large parts of both matches.“We did not want a three-team race to the wire in the group, but that is what it has become,” said the midfielder whose primary task is to disrupt opposition attacks.“Being eliminated this weekend would be a huge disappointment as the boys feel they can do better than that,” said Furman.Victories for Mazembe and SuperSport are the likeliest outcomes of the Saturday matches, saving officials from scrambling for CAF rules books.Group A is even more intriguing as Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) of Uganda, Club Africain of Tunisia, Rivers United of Nigeria and FUS Rabat of Morocco can qualify.Africain host KCCA and FUS have home advantage over Rivers and in a mini-league where nine of 10 matches produced home wins, the north Africans sides are poised to triumph and advance.Al Hilal Obeid of Sudan, one of the surprise sides of the Confederation Cup this season, have secured qualification from Group C, and will play a role in who advances with them.Zesco United of Zambia will go through if they defeat the Sudanese in Copperbelt city Ndola and avenge a 1-0 away loss.If Zesco lose or draw, the door opens for Recreativo Libolo of Angola and Smouha of Egypt, who clash in Calulo, southeast of Luanda.Leaders Mouloudia Alger of Algeria and record three-time Confederation Cup winners CS Sfaxien of Tunisia have booked last-eight places from Group B.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

City to pay $60,000 in search of home

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Beyond the $60,000, the city has not determined its legal costs related to the case. But James S. Muller, Mena’s attorney, said his fees add up to more than $200,000. He estimates the city will have spent up to $1 million defending a case his client would have settled for $20,000. “It’s a product of an arrogant attitude on the part of the Simi Valley city attorney and City Council that their police officers can do no wrong,” Muller said. “The bottom line is they were wrong. They treated her as if she were just completely without any rights … like she was nothing.” The question before the high court was how far police can go in searching homes and questioning occupants without violating their civil rights. The ruling gave police nationwide more direction on how they can conduct searches. The lawsuit stemmed from a February 1998 search of a Patricia Avenue home for a weapon believed to have been used in a gang-related shooting. SIMI VALLEY – After spending eight years and hundreds of thousands of dollars to fight a case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, the city has agreed to pay a $60,000 judgment to a woman who claimed police violated her civil rights during a search of her home. While the Supreme Court ruled that police could detain residents with handcuffs during a search, it sent the civil case back to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to determine whether Iris Mena remained handcuffed too long after the search concluded. The appellate court ruled last month in favor of Mena, and city officials said Tuesday they decided not to appeal the $60,000 judgment awarded by the original jury. “The city clearly was the victor in terms of the protection of rights of the police officers to defend their community,” City Manager Mike Sedell said. “After almost eight years of legal frustration and winning at the Supreme Court, it became a business decision.” Angie Valencia-Martinez, (805) 583-7604 angie.valencia@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: SHOULD YOU TRUST YOUR SCALES?

first_imgBY EMMET RUSGE: If there is one thing that I have learned from training hundreds of people over the last few years, it is this:The scale is a great tool for measuring clients, but it is not the only tool when measuring for body composition.  It shouldn’t be taken at face value. No movement on the scale does not mean that there have not been changes.Usually my articles can apply to both men and women, but today, I’m speaking mostly to the ladies. I have the weight and measurements of every client and every member of my “Better Bodies” classes over the last few years and one thing stands out from the weigh ins.The scale weight of the clients didn’t always match the inches lost by them.That is not to say that they didn’t lose any weight on the scale, but it didn’t always match into the amount of inches lost from their waists, hips or thighs, but for most clients, especially the female ones, the scale will always be the ultimate factor to whether their plan was successful or not.I have had clients lose 10cm from their waist and drop a dress size over a 6 week period, but because the scale weight ‘only’ dropped 2kg, they deemed this as a failure. When asked if their clothes fitted better and if they were happy with the changes in their bodies, the answer is always ‘yes’, but this is nearly always followed with a ‘but’ and this ‘but’ is usually in reference to the scale weight.One can’t really blame them.Females especially, have been hardwired to think that the scales are the be-all and end-all of weight loss, and anything except rapid drops in scale weight is seen as a complete failure.This couldn’t be further from the truth.You have to first understand the variations in weight: There are a few things that go into the “weight variance,” namely the following three things.Glycogen stores.This amount depends on your current consumption of carbohydrates. For every gram of carbohydrate that your body stores via glycogen, it also stores 3 grams of water. If you are carbohydrate-depleted, you will be at the lower end of your variance. Conversely, if you consume a ton of carbohydrates, you will be at the upper end of your variance.Water retention/depletion from sodium.If you suddenly consume more sodium than you are used to, you will likely retain water. Conversely, if you suddenly consume much less sodium, you will release water. Your body adjusts to the new levels accordingly via the hormone aldosterone, so don’t think that you can keep this value low just by cutting sodium out from your diet.Cycle bloat.Women will retain water during their cycle. For this reason, it’s best for women to only compare weight from month-to-month. Example;So let’s say that you are doing well on a diet plan, you have been sticking to it for a few weeks and then you end up out at the weekend and have a ‘bad night’ nutritionally and go on a binge.You get up the next morning, and feeling guilty, you step on the scales.Bam! Your weight is up and you look visibly ‘fatter’ in the mirror.Congratulations, you have just messed up the last few weeks of your diet.You may give up now and just go back to your old habits and get fat again.Woah, woah, woah….. hold on there Missy.Let’s look at what we said about glycogen and sodium up above.Firstly; you were on a low carb diet and eating pretty ‘clean’, so we are going to assume that your glycogens and sodium levels are slightly low.Your binge was all the foods that you haven’t been eating over the last few weeks, possibly a take away.What you are more than likely experiencing, along with the guilt, is what happens when people go on a bingeTypically, they will retain a lot more glycogen afterwards and see a massive increase in the scale.This is only water weight.Remember that for every gram of glycogen (carbs) that you ate, your body also stored 3 grams of water.Too often, I’ll see people defeated because they “gained all of the weight back.”When the reality is, it is fluid retention and if they get back on track, this will dissipate over a few days and the ‘weight’ they have put on will be gone.The scale is a tool that can be used for measuring weight loss.  Just remember that there are many different ways to measure body composition.  Scale weight is only one of these and shouldn’t be exclusively used as the be all and end all of your goals.#TrainSmartIf you have any question on this article or for getting a tailored program based on your starting point, please contact me through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: SHOULD YOU TRUST YOUR SCALES? was last modified: April 20th, 2015 by John2Share 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)Tags:emmet rushefitness columnmeasuremeasurementscalesweightlast_img read more
