How can M&CC whimsically change Constables’ uniforms?

first_imgDear Editor,I have observed what seems to be a change of uniform of constables attached to the City Constabulary of Georgetown, from their traditional dark blue uniforms to light blue tops and dark bottoms. These persons moving around the markets and around the city with these new outfits look more like security guards than Policemen.I would like to know if the Georgetown City Constabulary has changed its uniform just like that, without properly sensitising the public. Police departments all over the world are very strongly traditional, and they want their officers to look like Police officers. In other words, what the public associates with “Police officer”.Most people can identify a Police officer by the official Police uniform. When citizens on a busy street are in need of help, they scan the crowds of pedestrians looking for the distinctive uniform of a Police officer. Drivers who come to an intersection occupied by a person in a Police uniform usually willingly submit to that person’s hand directions. Criminals usually curb their unlawful behaviours when they spot a uniformed Police officer in the area. Many parents teach their children to respect and trust a person in Police uniform. How can the Council just whimsically change the uniforms of their Constables like that?Everyone knows that their uniforms were made of cheap polyester, and were poorly tailored, resulting in their wearers being hot and uncomfortable, and that they faded and turned purple after being laundered a few times, but that does not give them the right to just arbitrarily change them? They just needed to purchase high quality and properly tailored apparel.The traditional dark blue crisp uniforms of the City Constabulary conveyed power and authority. Even the slightest alterations to the style of this uniform will change how citizens will perceive these constables. The City Constabulary uniform is a tradition as old as the Constabulary itself, patterned after the London Metropolitan Police, who developed the first standard Police apparel.These first Police officers, the famous “Bobbies” of London, were issued a dark blue, paramilitary-style uniform. The colour blue was chosen to distinguish the Police from the British military, who wore red and white uniforms at the time.Darker colours may have been preferred for their ease in cleaning and their ability to help conceal the wearer in tactical situations. Dark colours help cover up stains and keep the officer from being easily spotted by lawbreakers, especially at night.Is this change of uniform another hare-brained idea by City Hall officials?With thanks,Riley Matthewslast_img read more

Muyoti fumes at loss to Gor’s ‘weakest team ever’

first_img“I am very disappointed with how we played today. We conceded two goals from long throws because of concentration lapses. This Gor side is one of the weakest they have ever fielded in this league and it is sad we lost,” the tactician offered.The tactician blamed his players for failing to sustain pressure and also offered that his frontline was not as creative as he would have wished.“We were under pressure and that’s when I expect my players to be cool, calm and collected but we were not. Our attack was blunt and we didn’t create much infront of goal,” Muyoti further stated.Kakamega Homeboyz striker Allan Wanga attempts to go past Gor Mahia’s Harun Shakava and Geoffrey Ochieng during their Kenyan Premier League match at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on March 14, 2019.

HSE settle case with terminally-ill Donegal midwife Philomena Canning

first_imgIndependent midwife Philomena Canning, who is seriously ill with terminal cancer, has settled her case with the HSE. Making the announcement on her Facebook page, Canning said it was ‘a day of vindication for her.’Last week the Glenvar women called on the Health Service Executive to settle the case against her and award her the compensation she needs to afford an immunotherapy drug to fight cancer. The 59-year-old has ovarian cancer and just weeks left to live.She has a case outstanding with the HSE over the withdrawal of her indemnity insurance to practise as a midwife in 2014.Ms Canning worked as an independent midwife for over three decades and attended over 500 home births in Ireland.In a statement, Canning said: “I am pleased to say that my case against the HSE has been settled to my satisfaction. “This is a day of vindication for me – the first day in almost four-and-a-half years where I have woken without a shadow over me: the shadow of having been wronged.“It is a relief to wake in the knowledge that I do not have to fight any more: for my livelihood, my good name, my vocation. I have the peace of mind I longed for.”Canning explained her relief that the fight had come to close, but described her sadness that her long-held ambition may never be realised.“But there is sadness too. I know that my long-held ambition of bringing birth centres to the women of Ireland may never be realised. But I also know that as the shadow over me lifts, new light is emerging. Fresh energy is rising up. Other dedicated, passionate and skilled midwives will take up the mantle and make it happen. Please know that I will never be far from you in spirit.“For myself, I know that in time, the full facts behind my unlawful suspension by the HSE on 12 September 2014 will emerge. When this happens, it will be for the better of the health and safety of women in home birth in Ireland. Then, I will be able to rest fully easy. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has given me such love and support over the past week since I went public on my situation. It was not something I would have wished to do, yet I realised that it was my only hope for reaching a settlement with the HSE. Your strength and fight on my behalf has kept me strong when I was at my weakest.“I would like to thank my family – my incredible siblings who have been here for me every step of the way – Mairead, Mary, Noel, James, Anne Collette, Malachy and Oonagh – my beautiful nieces and nephews, my in-laws and wider family.“I would like to thank my dear friend Olive Fitzpatrick and all my other friends who have held me when I needed holding and encouraged me when I needed courage – you know who you are, and I’ll be forever grateful to you.“I would like to offer special thanks to the woman who has been an angel at my side over the past four-and-a-half years – Ciara Considine. I don’t know what I can say to reflect what you’ve meant to me, Ciara. It has been a privilege to have you in my life and I can honestly say that I would not be here without you. I can not ever thank you enough for the gift of your friendship, your trust, your courage and your ability to always know how to act in my best interests. I love you deeply. “I would like to thank my legal team who have worked hard on my case over the past years – Patrick Cunningham, solicitor, Eanna Molloy SC and Tim Dixon, JC.“I would like to thank journalist Michael Clifford for his integrity, intelligence and ability to see into the heart of the matter, and also Moya Nolan, photographer and videographer with the Irish Examiner whose kindness, talent and time are deeply appreciated.“I would like to thank deeply my oncologist Dr David Fennelly and all the incredible nurses, the medical staff and all the other staff at St Vincent’s Private, who have looked after me with unending dedication, care and expertise.“Finally, I want to say to every pregnant woman out there, and every woman who wishes to be: you have within you the great gift of creation.“Therein lies enormous power and potential. Aeons of time and tides have pushed against your centre of power – sometimes gently, sometimes not.“Only woman can have dominion over birth, yet she is made battle continuously to guard her territory, or to gain access to it.“Every woman has the right to be supported by her healthcare providers in the birth of her choosing – just as she has the best interests of her baby at heart.“Your inner compass will show you the way. Look to it. Listen to your intuition. Sit in the centre of your courage: fear may be part of the journey but courage will overcome it every time.“And please listen to my words. You were born to do this. You were born to do this.”HSE settle case with terminally-ill Donegal midwife Philomena Canning  was last modified: March 4th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:HSEPhilomena Canninglast_img read more

James Hall Museum of Transport: a nod to land transport

first_imgOctober is Transport Month in South Africa. The James Hall Museum of Transport in Johannesburg preserves and collects the country’s transport heritage. Here, from schoolchildren to motor enthusiasts, from tourists to ordinary citizens, everyone will find something to catch their eye.The James Hall Museum of Transport houses South Africa’s opulent past in land transport. It contains vehicles from the 1600s to the present day. (Image: Priya Pitamber)Priya PitamberThe further you walk into the James Hall Museum of Transport, the stronger the scent of petrol. This is because some of the motor vehicles still work and have petrol in their tanks.The collections, says assistant museum curator Mandla Nkomo, start from the 1600s. “At the Transport Museum, we collect, preserve, and exhibit land transport and related items.” One of the newest additions to the museum is a dual electric car, made in South Africa in 2010.Think every mode of land transport from carts to carriages, cycles to cars. Among the exhibitions are the old trams which operated in Johannesburg’s city centre, trains, buses, a mobile library, and fire engines.Found in Rosettenville in the south of Johannesburg, the museum was established by James Hall, a city councillor in the 1960s. “He was an avid conservationist of items around heritage, including natural resources,” says Nkomo. “He approached the city and together, came to an understanding to open the museum.” That happened in 1964.The soft-spoken Mandla Nkomo is the assistant museum curator at the James Hall Museum of Transport. (Image: Priya Pitamber)Reasons to visitNkomo says the museum holds a lot of South Africa’s transport related heritage. “So people should come and see their heritage.“People should visit to see how people lived and how they travelled.”And of course, there is a lot to learn. “For example,” says Nkomo, “The first car came to South Africa in 1896.”It was a Benz Velo and it was also exhibited in Pretoria for the then president, Paul Kruger. “The car was privately owned. At the time, everyone was riding wagons and horses.” Today, Benz Velo is known as Mercedes Benz.Transport is integralNkomo says transport is important because it underlies every area of development in South Africa, and it helps to move resources around.“Imagine the 1800s when gold was discovered in Johannesburg,” he says. “Those guys got here from overseas – they used steam ships, they got on an ox wagon and it took months to get from the Cape or KwaZulu-Natal to Johannesburg“Imagine, that immigration wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for transport.”He commended the improvements to the public transport system in the city, with the additions of the Gautrain and the Rea Vaya, Johannesburg’s Bus Rapid Transit system.But he notices challenges still exist. “There is a decentralised plan of the cities. People don’t live where they work and have to travel long distances. More resources should be pumped into the system.”Future plansMany of the vehicles in the museum are running, he adds. “There is pleasure in seeing the cars working.”He envisions the museum becoming more interactive through these operational vehicles. Visitors may eventually be able to accompany museum staff when they safely drive the vehicles in a demarcated area, off the city’s streets.“We want it to be a living museum so people can experience their heritage.”What you need to knowThe museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 9am to 5pm. Entrance is free, but donations are welcome. Booking is needed for school tours, clubs, and so on. See the website for more.The museum is also one of the stops on the Johannesburg Sightseeing Red Tour Bus.“The Transport Museum always appreciates help from anyone who has knowledge about cars,” says Nkomo. “You can come over and volunteer and help out.”See images from the museum below: (Images: Priya Pitamber)last_img read more
