As Guyana observes Tourism Month in November, representatives from 192 countries are expected to visit for one of the largest aviation conferences in Guyana. This was on Wednesday revealed by senior representatives of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) during a press conference hosted at the agency’s head office on High Street, Georgetown.The conference is expected to have some 192 Member States of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) participate as was related by Director of Marketing and Operations Support, Franklin Vieira.It is slated to be held in Guyana at the Arthur Chung Conference Centre, Liliendaal, Greater Georgetown from November 21 to 23, 2018.The conference is being held under the theme “Promoting connectivity for sustainable air transport development”.It was pointed out during the meeting on Wednesday that air transport played a vital role in linking many coastal areas and communities in the hinterland and in connecting States to regional and global markets. In facilitating travel, air transport generates economic growth and development and even provides jobs among other benefits.“The objective of this meeting is to come up with practical solutions to the air transport challenges that we are facing in the sector internationally,” Director of Air Transport Management, Saheed Sulaman told Guyana Times.According to him, one of the challenges in the aviation sector is connectivity between States. He, however, noted that this month’s Air Transport Meeting would also address issues such as harmonising the regional air transport regulatory framework as well as the liberalisation of air cargo through regional and global approaches.Although only 25 countries have confirmed attendance, the GCAA said it was looking forward to having fruitful discussions during the three-day event.
Acting Regional Chairman Dennis DeRoopThe Region Six Regional Democratic Council (RDC) has publicly expressed its disapproval at the way Government Ministers treat the RDC.According to Acting Regional Chairman Dennis DeRoop, Government Ministers show total disregard by not visiting the RDC when they are in the region.Several Government Ministers, DeRoop said, do not even inform the regional administration that they will be visiting the region.“They just come into the region and do what they want. That is why we have taken a position now when they visit because if you are a Minister and you fail to inform the Regional Chairman office of [your] visit to show protocol, then we are not going to recognise their visit as an official visit,” DeRoop said.He was at the time addressing the statuary meeting of the RDC. Government Ministers, he added, should respect protocol and upon entering any region contact the Regional Chairman’s office first.“The President has been respecting the protocol. Every time the President is coming to this region, the first contact is made with the Regional Chairman’s office but the Ministers are bent in their own ways and we need to pull them in line and let them respect protocol.”The acting Chairman said even if they do not respect the regional leadership, the Ministers should show respect to the office, and inform it of their visit.“When a Minister is coming to a region, he or she is a Minister for all the people and not some parts of the region or a specific place within the region, so I urge that some work be done there in order to respect protocol.”Meanwhile, the RDC said it will be writing the Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) on allegations of victimisation over the awarding of contracts in the region since it has been done in a discriminatory way.He added that the same is being done with regard to employment in the region.“They are just selected and put into the position. They are being employed based on political affiliation and/or ethnicity. So the region will write the Ethnic Relations Commission on these two specific matters,” DeRoop added.

0Shares0000LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers acknowledges the crowd after hitting his 30,001 point during game against the San Antonio Spurs on January 23, 2018 © GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA/AFP/File / Ronald CortesLOS ANGELES, United States, Jan 24 – LeBron James added another impressive entry to his bulging collection of assorted records and statistical milestones on Tuesday after becoming the youngest player in NBA history to amass 30,000 points.The 33-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers superstar had firmly established his place in the pantheon of basketball greats long before he sank the 20-foot jump shot at the end of the first quarter of his team’s 114-102 loss to San Antonio. With that scoring milestone passed, few would bet against James ultimately finishing his career as the NBA’s all-time leading scorer and overtaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the current points leader with 38,387.To do that, James will need to play another five seasons and average around 20 points per game. Provided he stays free of injury — and James has been one of the most durable players in the NBA during his glittering 14-year career — that points total is well within reach.Long-time friend and team-mate Dwyane Wade is certain that James will finish his career as either first or second on the points list.“I’ve always said I think he will end (No.) 1 or 2,” Wade said this week.“By knowing his drive, I think from there it’s just about his health and as he’s getting older how much he wants to go and try to get that. I think he will.“Once he looks at it and says, ‘That’s only 8,000 away at some point let me see what I can do,’ I think he will try to go get it.”– ‘A special moment’ –James, meanwhile, who has always made it clear that he places championships above personal milestones, nevertheless took a moment to reflect on his entry to the 30,000 club, which until Tuesday contained just six other players — Abdul Jabbar, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain and Dirk Nowitzki.“Just a special moment,” James said. “I just started thinking about everything.After signing a three-year $100 million contract in 2016, James (R) has an opt out in 2018, which has fuelled speculation that he may seek pastures new © GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA/AFP/File / Ronald Cortes“My journey from being a kid who first picked up a basketball when I was 5 years old to first playing organized basketball when I was 9 all the way up to this point.“I give a lot of thanks to a lot of people. It’s something I never set out to do.”While Abdul-Jabbar’s points record could one day be in his sights, James would prefer to boost his tally of NBA titles.So far he remains stuck on three, and his finished on the losing side in the NBA Finals five times. That contrasts sharply with Jordan, who won all six of his NBA Finals during the Chicago Bulls dynasty.– Chasing a ghost –“My motivation,” James said in a 2016 interview, “is this ghost I’m chasing. The ghost played in Chicago.”So far this season, it looks likely that James will have to wait for his fourth NBA championship: Cleveland’s campaign has been blown off course in recent weeks, with the team losing 10 of their last 13 games.More worryingly, a steady stream of headlines from the Cavaliers locker room has painted a picture of in-fighting and discord behind the scenes.Cleveland remain third in the Eastern Conference standings so are firmly in the playoff picture.And while James’ personal stats are impressive — averaging 26.8 points, 7.9 rebounds and 8.6 assists — they have not necessarily helped the Cavaliers.For the first time in his career, his team have fared better when he is not on the court, with a differential of +3.7 points compared to -1.1 points when he is playing.After signing a three-year $100 million contract in 2016, James (R) has an opt out in 2018, which has fuelled speculation that he may seek pastures new © AFP / Jonathan STOREYIf Cleveland continue to struggle, it could ultimately lead to a second departure from the Cavaliers. After signing a three-year $100 million contract in 2016, James has an opt out this year, which has fuelled speculation that he may seek pastures new.His purchase of a second mansion in Los Angeles last month has prompted talk of a possible move to the Lakers, who are struggling to recapture former glories after years at the foot of the Western Conference.In the short-term however, a move to the Lakers is unlikely to get James closer to his goal of another championship ring.That reality could tempt James into looking towards a more established franchise, with the Houston Rockets touted as one possible option.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)

Chelsea new boy Andre Schurrle says he believes his best position is as a left winger.The Germany international has joined the Blues from Bayer Leverkusen, where mostly operated on the flank, but he has also spent part of his career as a striker.“In attack I can play in every position,” Schurrle told Chelsea’s website.“But I think wide on the left is my best position because I can cut inside and score goals with my right foot, which I hope to be able to do here. But I am confident playing anywhere offensively.”The 22-year-old, who has signed a five-year contract at Stamford Bridge, will face stiff competition for a first-team place at his new club.With the likes of Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Oscar and Victor Moses to choose from, boss Jose Mourinho does not lack attacking options.“Of course, they are all great players – very young with lots of quality,” said Schurrle.“It was my dream to train every day with such talented players so I’m very much looking forward to it.”He added: “For this club, winning titles is always the main objective. We have a great young team with so much quality.“We are capable of doing well in the Premier League, Champions League and the cup competitions as well, and I hope to play a big part.”YTo4OntzOjk6IndpZGdldF9pZCI7czoyMDoid3lzaWphLW5sLTEzNTI0NjE4NjkiO3M6NToibGlzdHMiO2E6MTp7aTowO3M6MToiMyI7fXM6MTA6Imxpc3RzX25hbWUiO2E6MTp7aTozO3M6MjI6Ildlc3QgTG9uZG9uIFNwb3J0IGxpc3QiO31zOjEyOiJhdXRvcmVnaXN0ZXIiO3M6MTc6Im5vdF9hdXRvX3JlZ2lzdGVyIjtzOjEyOiJsYWJlbHN3aXRoaW4iO3M6MTM6ImxhYmVsc193aXRoaW4iO3M6Njoic3VibWl0IjtzOjMzOiJTdWJzY3JpYmUgdG8gb3VyIGRhaWx5IG5ld3NsZXR0ZXIiO3M6Nzoic3VjY2VzcyI7czoyODM6IlRoYW5rIHlvdSEgUGxlYXNlIGNoZWNrIHlvdXIgaW5ib3ggaW4gb3JkZXIgdG8gY29uZmlybSB5b3VyIHN1YnNjcmlwdGlvbi4gSWYgeW91IGRvbid0IHNlZSBhbiBlLW1haWwgZnJvbSB1cywgY2hlY2sgeW91ciBzcGFtIGZvbGRlci4gSWYgeW91IHN0aWxsIGhhdmVuJ3QgcmVjZWl2ZWQgYSBjb25maXJtYXRpb24gbWVzc2FnZSwgcGxlYXNlIGUtbWFpbCBmZWVkYmFja0B3ZXN0bG9uZG9uc3BvcnQuY29tIGFuZCB0ZWxsIHVzIHlvdSB3aXNoIHRvIHN1YnNjcmliZSB0byBvdXIgbmV3c2xldHRlci4iO3M6MTI6ImN1c3RvbWZpZWxkcyI7YToxOntzOjU6ImVtYWlsIjthOjE6e3M6NToibGFiZWwiO3M6NToiRW1haWwiO319fQ== Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
