Habana to hang up boots

first_imgThe 34-year-old winger, whose contract at French club Toulon expires in June, confirmed the news on Instagram.”The inevitable moment has come knocking on my door and I’ve welcomed it in for a drink.” he said.Habana scored 67 tries in the 124 Test appearances he made for the Springboks and his last international appearance was in 2016 when he was also vice-captain.The electric winger underwent knee surgery last year and has struggled to make an impact at Toulon this season.”It’s been more than a year of hoping, trying, pushing and willing to get back on the field for one last time, to taste the sweet victory or encounter that gut-wrenching despair,” he said.”To hear the roar of the crowd or grab the pill out of the air. To make that last bone crunching tackle or score that last game winning try. But it’s unfortunately just not to be.”I, like most, would have liked my career to have ended differently, but sometimes things don’t turn out quite the way we hope for.”So at the end of this season, it’s time to say goodbye and thank you to the game I so dearly love.”last_img read more

“Hire women and you will succeed” – US Ambassador

first_imgIn a world where men have dominated statistics for senior positions in most sectors, United States Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch has urged companies to hire more women, since they are linked to producing higher profits.The Ambassador shared these remarks during the third annual Women’s Leadership and Business Conference, organised by WeLead Caribbean—a Guyanese-based non-profit organisation.United States (US) Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah Ann Lynch“There is so much data which supports the notion when you bring women into the political and economic life of a country, the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) goes up and poverty rates go down. It’s proven that companies with more women in higher management positions achieve higher profits. It’s simple really, hire women and you will succeed,” she beckoned.Lynch indicated that in many scenarios, women are faced with obstacles which hinder their growth. As a result of sexism, men are given importance or credit for the work of women.“There are still barriers and obstacles for women to achieve their full potential. Talented women everywhere are working 24 hours a day and still get discouraged that they cannot seem to get ahead. Every day, sexism is still with us. We’ve all felt it. The meetings where your ideas are ignored and a man says the same thing and he gets the credit. The banks that won’t extend credit to you because you’re a woman,” the Ambassador related.Throughout the session, motivational speeches were delivered by women across Guyana. Managing Director of Ansa McAL, Beverley Harper, shared some of the advantages of including women in a business environment.“Organisations that develop and advance women will benefit for a number of reasons, specifically, they will access a large part of the available talent pool as well as employ individuals who reflect a substantial part of their consumer base,” Harper highlighted.She underlined the prevalence of sexual harassment in the workplace, but there are other factors which prevent women from owning their own enterprises entirely. These are related to religion, culture and social trends. In other cases, their own timidity hinders the achievement of their true potential.“We, as women, have to experience varying degrees of sexual harassment once we enter the workplace…Social and traditional constraints restrict women’s participation in business. Sometimes, religion hinders women from owning their own businesses and in some countries, women may be required to have a male partner to make the deals and be the face of the business”.Meanwhile, First Lady Sandra Granger acknowledged that many women are creating their own businesses using their fashion, manufacturing, art and culinary skills. However, domestic violence continues to play a part in societal ills.“Here in Guyana, we also confront the scourge of domestic violence which cuts across class, race, creed, age and geographic location. As women living in the 21st century, we still have to contend with Neanderthal concepts of a woman’s place and function. It baffles me that there is no greater outcry and/or action against acts of violence committed against women and children in our society,” Granger expressed.The business conference also saw contributions from American singer Beyonce’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure.last_img read more

Reminder: fireworks ban in effect this Halloween in Fort St. John

first_imgWhen the Fort St. John bylaw came into effect, it also prohibited the sale of fireworks within the city. The response from retailers has been mixed, with some complaining that the business they used to get has now moved to the Regional District, but Burrows maintains it shouldn’t matter as they’re still not allowed to set them off in the city. He adds he’s heard from at least one store that they’re relieved due to the hassle of storing unsold fireworks safely. “If you get a large inventory or shipment of fireworks and you don’t sell them, you’re responsible to store them safely until next year,” he says. “That was a problem for that particular retailer, and now that the playing field is even, nobody can sell them in town. I don’t think they’re losing any sleep over it.” “Typically it hasn’t been bad,” he says. “It’s a fairly responsible community. It’s a young community, and everybody’s worried about their children, so it’s pretty good that way.” The fire department won’t be out hunting down those in contravention of the fire prevention bylaw, but is prepared to respond to any complaints. Since its inception in March, Burrows says he hasn’t had any. “There’s no way we can stop people from doing it, but if we do receive a complaint we go to investigate,” he explains. ”They can be fined under the bylaw or after hours the RCMP may, if it’s a real problem, deal with it themselves or call the bylaw people to deal with it.” – Advertisement -At less than a year, it’s too soon to tell what effect the new ban will have on fireworks-related fire numbers. However, Surrey Deputy Fire Chief Jon Caviglia says their community has seen a major drop in incidents since the city decided to only allow the use of fireworks on a permit basis. “In 2004, before we had a requirement to have a permit, we had 90 fire-related calls to fireworks on Halloween,” he says. “In 2005, when the permit requirement came in, it dropped to 18, and it has since dropped down to about five we average over the last four or five years.” Advertisement Caviglia adds that just having the regulations can also help parents control their children’s use of fireworks, as it’s simply not permitted in the city. “It allows police in your city to confiscate from teenagers if they’re out in the streets using them, and they can actually fine them,” although he admits confiscation is likely more common than fines. Locally, Chief Burrows also believes that having provincial rules on the use of fireworks would help with other issues. Residents can buy fireworks only 10 minutes outside of town in Charlie Lake, where the local bylaw is no longer in effect unless a provincial fire ban is in effect. Unlawfully discharging fireworks in the PRRD comes with a $100 fine under Bylaw No. 860, 1994. “It really gets out of hand being unregulated in the Regional District, particularly in the summer months when you’re in between or in the fringe of having a shutdown because of fire season,” he argues. “If there’s a provincial rule and cut and dry guidelines, it would probably make it a lot easier for everybody.” Advertisementlast_img read more

The people of the island really got behind it, and there is a real drive happening to organise the festival again next year. “Tomorrow night’s event will see all proceeds going towards next year’s festival which we hope will provide some much needed tourism to the island and for the County as a whole.”He continued, “This event promises the best night’s entertainment that Donegal’s original artists can offer.

Letterkenny game developer launches Greenlight campaign for new game

first_imgLetterkenny based game development studio Timeslip Softworks is excited to reveal the launch of Greenlight and Kickstarter campaigns for their second game, Vigilantes.The studio was founded by Daithi Mc Hugh, a graduate of LYIT, who works with artists and voice actors from all over the world to create quality games, which are sold globally.Vigilantes is a turn based, combat role playing game, which shares a lot of common ground with chess. In Vigilantes, players assume the role of Sam Contino, a man who has decided to take a stand against organised crime in the fictional, declining city of Reiker. The studio’s Greenlight campaign is a bid to secure a distribution contract with Steam, the world’s largest PC game distributor.To be offered this contract, a large number of votes from Steam users are needed. If you are a Steam user, and would like to help, our Greenlight campaign can be found by clicking here.Vigilantes has been in development for almost two years, and we are running a Kickstarter to secure funding to help with upcoming costs. In the first day, the campaign has raised 18% of its goal.The Kickstarter allows those interested in Vigilantes the chance to purchase a copy of the game at around 50% discount. If you would like to view the Kickstarter campaign, it can be found here.A demo is available for Vigilantes for Windows, Mac and Linux. Given the crime themed setting, Vigilantes is not intended for children. The demo can be found here. To keep up to date with Daithi’s work, you can find him on Facebook, Twitter, or on his website.If anyone would like to ask Daithi anything about game development, he can be contacted at daithi@timeslipsoftworks.com Letterkenny game developer launches Greenlight campaign for new game was last modified: October 1st, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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)last_img read more
