Incontinent nut

first_imgSatiricus couldn’t believe his eyes. There in black and white was the claim that the most intellectual man in Guyana was nuts! And of all places it was made in a court and by a man who was a lawyer. He retired to his assignation at the Back Street Bar still seething.“It’s jealously!” he exclaimed to his friend Cappo, the cane cutter who had beaten him to the drink and was already seated. “It’s pure and simple jealously!”They were ensconced – as was their custom for years – at their back seats, just as they had sat in class during their primary school days. Cappo had always been the class clown.“Sato, me shore a jalasy!” he said mildly as he took a sip of beer. “”But a who yuh ah täk ’bout?”“Didn’t you read about it?” he demanded. “That two-bit lawyer, Han No Man, claimed Kiss-Soon is “nuts”!”“Na, me na read da,” Cappo confessed. “Me read de laa-ya seh Kissoon “incontinent”. Da wan prappa big word and me look am up in me data dickshanary. ‘E mean Kiss Soon cyaan hold in ‘e sh*t”Sayiricus eye goggled and he looked at Cappo carefully to see if he was pulling his leg. He decided not and said, “The lawyer said Kiss-Soon was “incompetent”…which means that Kiss-Soon is nuts!”“Wha’ mek ‘e seh suh?” Cappo replied innocently.“Well, yuh know Kiss-Soon is the biggest intellectual in the world,” said Satiricus who was still agitated. “And Han No Man couldn’t put his question in an intellectual way that Kissoon could understand them!”“Gi’e me wan example na?” said Cappo quietly and he continued sipping his beer.“Well the lawyer asked Kiss-Soon if he saw the man who threw the miasmic substance at him and Kiss-Soon asked him back whether he was using the word “see” in an “epistemological” or “ontological” sense,” reported Satiricus.“Raas Budday!” Cappo exclaimed. “Me bin t’ink eider yuh see de man or yuh na see de man!”“That’s because you’re not an intellectual, Cappo,” said Satiricus firmly, “As Kiss-Soon said, “There are dimensions of the truth. I am educated, sir.”“Yes da adda big in-chu-lek-chwal pan Channel 6 bin seh suh too,” said Cappo. “Ev’ry story gat t’ree side. Me side…you side and de adda side!

Infrastructural projects and accountability

first_imgIt is unbelievable the quality of work that is being carried out by some contractors engaged in public infrastructure projects; most of which cost the Treasury millions of dollars. All around the country one can point to numerous examples of substandard work for which contractors were paid huge sums; in fact, in some cases they were even overpaid.In many cases, very little action is taken against these errant contractors for not meeting their contractual obligations, resulting in them walking scotch free. In fact, some persons would even be shocked to learn that these same persons who have done poor work or left work incomplete were awarded additional contracts.Year after year, in his report, the Auditor General would highlight a number of examples of substandard or incomplete work in construction projects across the country – whether they be schools, hospitals, roads, bridges etc. His most recent report was no different.In that report, the AG pointed to some instances where projects were incomplete, or left abandoned even though contractors were already paid huge sums to do a proper job. Many have asked what actions are being taken against these contractors to recoup these monies, or what sort of systems has been put in place to ensure these contracting firms are debarred from bidding for future projects.Several previous sittings of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) and regional officials to address several irregularities it was pointed out at that in the past, sums of money were overpaid to contractors in mobilisation fees – which is a fraction of the contractual cost that is paid to the contractor to get his/her equipment to the site where the project is to be implemented. In some cases, sums of money over the standard or required amount are paid to the contractor, and the works are still not completed.This, certainly, is unacceptable. And while taxpayers have used different forums to complain previously, the relevant agencies have a duty to ensure that public monies are well spent and accounted for.From what is gathered, there are several lapses in the national procurement system from time to time which need to be corrected urgently. For example, it is clear that there is poor monitoring and reporting mechanisms in place to ensure contracting firms carry out works as per contractual agreement. Also, there seems to be no strict policy to penalise and/or debar contractors for failing to meet their contractual obligations.The Public Infrastructure Ministry last year had said that it is in the process of establishing a database which will keep a track record of the number of projects awarded to local contractors and their performance with respect to each. It would also be helpful if procuring entities keep a proper record of the performance of companies with regard to projects awarded. This could be used as an effective measure to better inform the process for selecting competent contractors to handle Government projects.With the Public Procurement Commission (PPC) in place, one would have hoped that the relevant mechanisms would have been put in place with the aim of ensuring these lapses are corrected. The PPC would need to reexamine and implement effective measures for blacklisting, so that contractors who are consistently delinquent could face the requisite level of debarment. A contractor found to have a record of producing poor and incomplete work cannot and should not be awarded additional contracts.That said, citizens also have a role to play in ensuring that they get value for money. They should also be encouraged to provide the relevant feedback to the respective authorities in relation to how certain projects are progressing in their communities.last_img read more

Sheriffs battle spread of jailhouse hooch

first_imgIt’s the latest push to try to reduce violence in the 20,000-inmate system, where more than 5,000 assaults are reported each year. Nine homicides have occurred in the past seven years, including a case in 2003 in which two inmates were drunk on pruno before they fatally beat a cellmate. Pruno has triggered many fights through the years, documented in annual reports by the Los Angeles Office of Independent Review, which oversees internal investigations at the Sheriff’s Department and makes disciplinary recommendations. “We see pruno-related incidents all the time,” said Rob Miller, deputy chief attorney for the Office of Independent Review. “It has proven to be a very tenacious problem.” Recently, a group of inmates assaulted deputies with their fists, heads and feet. “It was over quickly, but it was clear that it was very much a pruno-fueled, liquid-courage thing,” Miller said. “It probably would not have happened if they were not liquored up.” In December 2003, two inmates had been drinking pruno before they attacked a fellow inmate who was acting strange and talking to himself. The inmate died from his wounds a day after being found by a deputy, according to the Office of Independent Review in a study of five jail homicides between October 2003 and April 2004. But pruno has been discussed and worried about by custody officials and celebrated by inmates for years. San Quentin Death Row inmate Jarvis Jay Masters calls for fruit cocktail, oranges, white sugar and ketchup in his 1992 poem “Recipe for Prison Pruno.” The poem, which interlaces details of his death sentence with the recipe, won an award from PEN, an international literary organization. Pruno is easy to make, requiring only a basic understanding of the fermentation process in which sugars are broken down into ethyl alcohol and carbon dioxide in the presence of yeast. The jail-made concoction can come in various flavors. A prison wine or beer can be made from food that is given to inmates on a daily basis through one of their three meals. The key ingredient is fruit. Inmates will use rotten fruit such as oranges and apples and anything containing sugar. They use bread or donuts from the jail canteen to make a hoppy beer concoction. “Instead of drinking fruit punch for that day, they’ll stash it away,” said Deputy Robert W. Staggs, who searches cells with his dog Toby. “They’ll wait till they have 20, 30, 40 cartons of juice. “In a large trash bag, they try to brew it three to five gallons at a time. It’s extremely easy. You can brew a five-gallon batch in three days.” Those who are less savvy save the ingredients and send them to designated inmate brewmasters who have honed their talent by learning from other former masters. “It’s just like anything in custody,” said Dexter. “You have all different types. You have the guy who’s the artist who becomes the tattoo artist. Then there’s that one guy who’s been in and out of custody a few times and has that special gift and can put together a good batch of pruno.” The longer it is brewed, the stronger it gets. Deputies know the dangers and engage in a cat-and-mouse game with inmates to find the stuff. Inmates hide pruno in toilets, under bunks, under tables. On a recent morning, a canine unit with two deputies and two dogs swept through a dorm at Men’s Central Jail, trying to pick up the scent of pruno. Nothing was found that day. But it’s a daily ritual. The team searches the dorms, cellblocks, clothing-exchange rooms, trustee quarters, closets – anywhere contraband can be hidden. A search can take 15 minutes to a half-hour. “It’s a constant struggle,” said Deputy John Eidem, one of the two-man crew who searches with his dog Gunner. “Deploying these two dogs isn’t going to solve the problem.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! It may smell rotten, burn your gut and give you a nasty hangover – but it’s easy to make and it gets you drunk. And hundreds – possibly thousands – of gallons of it are being brewed each year by Los Angeles County inmates. The ubiquitous jailhouse hooch known as pruno has been blamed for sparking lethal violence in the nation’s largest jail system. And now the homemade tipple has become such a problem that the Sheriff’s Department has formed a task force to combat it. As part of the aggressive efforts to eradicate the contraband, sheriff’s officials have doubled the number of cellblock sweeps and plan to enlist the help of college chemists, brewmasters and vintners to test its potency and effects. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champ“Anywhere anyone is incarcerated, they’re probably brewing pruno,” said Jim Dexter, a Sheriff’s Department food services operations sergeant who is heading up the task force. “I don’t understand how someone could drink it. It’s been described as smelling like vomit. “It is our goal to eliminate it. It all boils down to the safety of all the inmates.” Taking its name from the prunes once used to make it, pruno can be made from any fruit or juice stashed away by inmates. Its alcohol content typically ranges between that of beer and wine, or about 4 percent to 14 percent. In some 1,100 searches conducted so far this year, deputies have uncovered more than 370 gallons of pruno. That’s up nearly 60 percent over the 232 gallons found in 2006, when a team made more than 500 searches. The task force met last month for the first time with medical staff, lawyers and others to talk about the problem, and Dexter said he is set to contact university officials, brewmasters and vintners to invite them to join the task force. last_img read more

Championship wrap: Hibs maintain perfect start, Raith frustrate United

first_imgDebut goals from Andrew Shinnie and Grant Holt helped Hibernian continue their 100 per cent start to the SPFL Championship season as they thrashed Morton 4-0 at Easter Road. Midfielder Shinnie, on a season-long loan from Birmingham, nodded in a David Gray cross at the back post to the open the scoring in the 29th minute before former Rochdale striker Holt produced a bullet header from John McGinn’s ball to double the lead four minutes before half-time. Striker Jason Cummings put the result beyond doubt nine minutes into the second period, heading in Shinnie’s cross from close range to claim his sixth goal in four league games. Morton offered little attacking threat and their afternoon was made worse when Brian Graham headed home Cummings’ ball to make it four with 16 minutes remaining. Raith came from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw with Dundee United at Tannadice – but it did end their 100 per cent start to the Scottish Championship season. Having conceded just once in their opening three games, the Rovers defence was breached twice in the opening 23 minutes. Willo Flood lashed a fine volley into the bottom corner in the 17th minute before they doubled their advantage from the penalty spot six minutes later. Flood was brought down by Declan McManus and Cammy Smith made no mistake from 12 yards for his fifth goal of the season. Raith reduced the deficit in the 38th minute when Jordan Thompson thumped a volley into the top corner. Kevin McHattie then drew Raith level 18 minutes from time with a cracking 25-yard effort.Derek Lyle scored the only goal as Queen of the South maintained their unbeaten start to the Scottish Championship season by beating Dunfermline at East End Park. Queens had a huge let-off in the 12th minute when Lyle’s free-kick hit both posts before David Hutton cleared. Stephen Dobbie squandered a decent opening for the visitors before they did take the lead on the stroke of half-time. Jamie Hamill’s free-kick found Andy Dowie at the far post and his header across goal was converted by Lyle for his third goal in as many games. Dunfermline were reduced to 10 men in the 62nd minute when Jason Talbot saw red for violent conduct following a two-footed tackle on Kyle Jacobs. The home side came close to a leveller when Andy Geggan’s shot from range was spilled by Lee Robinson but Ryan Williamson was unable to convert the rebound.Lee Miller’s late strike earned Falkirk their first league win – 1-0 at home to Dumbarton. Luca Gasparotto saved the home side from an early setback when he reacted quickly to clear David Smith’s prod at goal. Falkirk settled and forced Alan Martin into action. The goalkeeper moved smartly to repel John Baird’s effort and then cut off a diving header from Myles Hippolyte. When Luke Leahy headed against the crossbar in the second half for Peter Houston’s men, it looked as if the breakthrough would never come. But, in the 86th minute, Leahy crossed for Miller to slam in at the back post and snatch his side victory.Tom Walsh struck a late equaliser to earn St Mirren a 1-1 draw at Ayr which leaves both sides still searching for their first win in the Scottish Championship this season. Jamie Adams’ 14th-minute header, from Brian Gilmour’s cross, had looked like ensuring Ayr halted their three-match losing streak. St Mirren came close to equalising in the 66th minute but David Clarkson’s header from Walsh’s delivery fell narrowly wide. However, Walsh was to earn the visitors a point when he nodded in Lawrence Shankland’s long throw at the back post. There was still time for John Sutton to come close to a late winner for the Saints but his shot was blocked as the spoils were shared.last_img read more
