Gaming Authority guilty of corrupt practices – Opposition Leader

January 12, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: ixyfmqzbo.

first_imgThe Gaming Authority has been listed as another agency that is culpable of corrupted actions, after information surfaced that one business owner was asked to bribe officials in order for his casino licence to be granted.Opposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoThis was brought to light by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo on Thursday, who stated that the owner of SleepIn Hotel was denied his licence after being asked to pay a large sum of money to see his application through.This is one of the main reasons why the casino of the Hotel was never opened to the public, despite a multimillion-dollar investment.Another individual was involved in the process, proposing that the licence be issued to his establishment and then sold to the SleepIn owner.The proposed SleepIn Hotel CasinoUnder the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Administration, provisions were made for only three casinos to be operational in every region. While the Ramada Princess Casino was functional, the Marriott Hotel had signalled interest along with SleepIn Hotel.As part of the requirements, prospective casino owners were asked to construct a hotel with no less than 150 rooms and other requirements to encourage economic activities and they would be granted a licence to operate.It was recently announced by the Director General of the Ministry of the Presidency, Joseph Harmon that there has been a surge in the number of betting and gaming shops in Guyana. Jagdeo lamented that this is because of the slackness in having companies pay the bribe without making any investments that could provide services or employment to Guyanese.“You have some foreign companies that have come in here and quickly go through the process of getting licences. They never built a hotel, they never built 150 rooms and employed thousands of Guyanese. … This is what is happening now,” the Opposition Leader alleged.Marriott HotelIn 2016, hotelier Clifton Bacchus was denied permission from the Gaming Authority to commence operations, having invested millions into developing a state-of-the-art casino, which remains closed. Chairman of the Gaming Authority, Roysdale Forde indicated on Wednesday during a stakeholders’ forum that a second application was filed.During that event, Harmon had acknowledged that there has been a multiplication of these gaming outlets and admitted that the Authority would be pressured to ensure that all outlets were in compliance with the requisite licensing. Some of these gaming establishments are situated in communities which are suffering from socioeconomic constraints.The Ramada Princess Hotel Casino“With our economy moving at the pace at which it is moving, I can only anticipate that it is going to be a tremendous pressure on the Authority for licences to open gaming establishments. What I have also seen that there is a proliferation of these betting shops all across Guyana. I trust that the Gaming Authority takes this responsibility of ensuring that these entities are properly regulated and that they operate within the confines of the laws of Guyana, because they cannot escape notice that some of these operations are in some of the especially challenged communities of our country,” he had stated.The Director General insisted that operators and consumers of these establishments should be engaged on the negative impacts of betting and gaming sites.“The Gaming Authority has a responsibility to ensure that the public and operators of gaming establishments are aware of not only the positive but also the negative impacts that gaming can have on an individual and our society in general. This is necessary so as to assist owners in appreciating the need for a systems and policies that will support responsible gaming and gambling.”last_img read more

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: INTERMITTENT FASTING

December 28, 2019 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: ixyfmqzbo.

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: We have long been told that breakfast was the most important meal of the day.Whether your intention was weight loss or muscle gain, not eating breakfast was a complete no, no.The old adage goes that breakfast ‘kick-starts’ our metabolism and then eating small and often throughout the day keeps it ticking over. The idea was that if you eat too little or miss meals, your metabolism would slow down to a crawl and fat loss would stall altogether.Over the last few years a number of nutrition and fitness experts have been championing the idea that eating LESS OFTEN is the best way to not only burn more fat, but also to live a healthier life.John Romaniello author of ‘Engineering the Alpha’ describes Intermittent Fasting as alternating intervals of not eating (fasting) with times when you are allowed to eat.Sound confusing? It’s not really a difficult a concept to grasp.Why fasting?Researchers have found that after a few hours of fasting, the body breaks cholesterol into bile acids. 
At the same time the liver shuts down glucose production, which lowers blood glucose levels. 
This excess stored liver glucose is now used to repair damaged cells and make new DNA. 
While this is happening, liver enzymes are helping in the creation of brown fat, which converts extra calories to heat.What does this mean for you??What the science tells us is, that in a fasted state you are enhancing your body’s ability to burn fat as an energy source. 

You are basically teaching your body to become more adept at shifting back to burning fat after a meal. Intermittent Fasting has also been thought to have anti-aging effects and can help regulate blood glucose levels, and can ‘treat’ asthma, autoimmune diseases and cardiac arrhythmias.Sounds like a win-win situation doesn’t it?There are a few methods of Intermittent Fasting that the top proponents use.Brad Pilon, author of ‘Eat Stop Eat’, uses a 24 hour fasting model. He recommends it 1-2 times per week.Once per week as a full 24 hour fast or using 2, 12 hour fasts on 2 separate days.The 12 hour fasts can be done easily; 
You can simply sort your schedule so you have your last meal shortly before bed, sleep through the majority of the fasting period and have your first meal after the 12 hours are up.Pilon advocates a ‘lunch to lunch’ or a ‘dinner to dinner fast’.This kind of fasting has also been shown to help stave off degenerative brain conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinsons.Another type of fasting is Martin Berkhan’s 16-8 model.Berkhan advises condensing your nutritional intake into an 8 hour ‘eating window’ to maximise hormonal benefits.The idea behind the 16 hour fast is that you produce Growth Hormone when you sleep.Eating shuts down the body’s ability to produce Growth hormone because of spikes in insulin levels.By pushing back when your first meal and avoiding eating at night, you can maximise growth hormone production.10am to 6pm eating window.What does this mean for you?Hugh Jackman used this model of Intermittent fasting for the last ‘Wolverine’ Movie.Jackman credits this style of eating for getting him as lean and muscular as he ever has been.John Romaniello also uses the 16-8 model but with a slight difference.Romaniello adds in ‘cheat days’ which he calls the ‘Feast/Fast model with clients who have become used to the fasting model.On the cheat days you can eat whatever you like but you follow this up with a 36 hour fast.Romaniello states that this has not only physical benefits but also physiological and emotional benefits.Dieting causes Leptin levels to drop which will slow down fat loss, the cheat day allows for the boosting of leptin which in turn increases the rate of fat loss.Romaniello also says that putting a fast day after a cheat day does 2 things;1: ‘Prevents any fat gain from the extra calories of the cheat day by creating an immediate deficit the following day.’ 
2: ‘Prevents the slowing of fat loss and allows the hormonal benefits of the fast to proceed uninterrupted.’What does this mean for you as a beginner to this way of eating?These methods of fasting, when advised and monitored by an educated professional, could potentially help you to burn more fat and build lean muscle while getting some hormonal and even anti-aging effects, and did I mention that Wolverine uses it?

Using 3D Printing to Repair Rodin’s Thinker

In 2007, the Singer Laren Museum in the Netherlands, where The Thinker resided, was burglarized. The meatheads who broke in did so not to steal the art, but to steal the metal. They made off with seven sculptures and started to try to chop them up to sell for scrap. Six of the sculptures were utterly destroyed but a badly damaged Thinker was recovered. Quite aside from its artistic merit, it is worth, on the open market, up to $10 million. So the Singer Laren needed to figure out how to deal with the butchered figure. iMaterialise had an idea. They did a CT scan of the damaged figure. Then they scanned the original mold retained by the Musee Rodin in Paris. They printed out a full-sized copy from the original on their Mammoth 3D printer. The Mammoth uses a photopolymer resin to form the product in sections about six feet in length. The CT scans are imported and rendered using Materialise’s software. Lasers guide the shape, laying down thin sheets until they build up into the figure. A modeler finishes, adding texture and color.The conservators at the Singer Laren have used that and the scans of the original to re-fabricate and lay in the missing and damaged parts of the statue. The remade Thinker is on display at an exhibit at the Singer Laren called The Thinker Thinks Again through May.
