Position: West Indies lost by six wickets. Toss: Pakistan Umpires: JM Williams and JS Wilson. SCOREBOARD GROS-ISLET, St Lucia (CMC): Merissa Aguilleira, who led a recovery despite West Indies Women’s opening loss to Pakistan Women, is confident the Caribbean side will rebound for the remaining three one-day internationals (ODI). Aguilleira hit her fifth ODI half-century, but Javeria Khan topped it with her seventh to lead the Pakistani Women to a six-wicket victory over the Windies Women in the day/night contest at the Beausejour Cricket Ground on Friday night. “Thanks to God. Thanks to the coaches as well. I have been working pretty hard back in Trinidad. David Williams, he put in a lot of work with me,” said Aguilleira, who also keeps wicket for the regional side. “It’s all about going out there and applying myself. I have been training hard and I really want to give the team something, so that is exactly what I went out there and did.” Aguilleira led a recovery with an unbeaten 67 from 83 balls, propelling the home team to a respectable 222 for nine from their allocation of 50 overs after they were sent in to bat. Aguilleira struck five fours to revive the innings and with Britney Cooper, who scored 37, got Windies past 150. The home side was able to score 66 off the last 75 balls, to end on 222 for nine. “Coach told me I have a responsibility to go out there and bat long, and that is exactly what I tried to do. Sorry that the team fell short, but I believe that we are going to bounce back,” said the former skipper. “These are the things that happen and we really need to just go back to the drawing board and see where we went wrong. (The) 27 extras were a bit too much. We know that we have a very good team, but it just about going out there and applying ourselves. But hard luck.” The Windies Women now trail in the four-match series 0-1, but Aguilleira said they will be looking to bounce back in the second ODI today at the same venue in the first of the three matches in the series, with ICC Women’s Championship points on offer. “I truly believe that, with the potential of the girls, everything will come to hand. Even though we lost this one, we still have three to win, and you know its championship points,” said Aguilleira. “We just have to go out there and apply ourselves to what we are called to do and don’t give up hope.”

Signing bonusTrouble is brewing over Government’s investing of the US$18 million signing bonus it received from ExxonMobil in overseas interest-bearing bonds.Finance Minister Winston Jordan could be brought before the courts to face private criminal charges because of this action.Former Attorney General, Opposition Parliamentarian Anil Nandlall, revealed that the institution of private criminal charges against Jordan for the handling of the bonus is being considered.Nandlall slammed the decision to invest the monies in interest bearing securities, “knowing fully that there are legal proceedings challenging the constitutionality of placing the US$18 million signing bonus in a secret account in the Central Bank and outside of the Consolidated Fund as is mandated by Article 218 of the Constitution.”“By so doing, the minister is not only demonstrating his crass disrespect for the judicial process, but is demonstrating even greater disregard for the Constitution by moving the money even farther away from the Consolidated Fund,” Nandlall declared.Reminding that there is no entry for the money in the official accounting records of the Government for the years 2016 and 2017, Nandlall also pointed out that there is no mention of the money in the national budgets for the years 2017 and 2018.“This money is public funds, and must be dealt with and accounted for in accordance with the Constitution and the laws of Guyana. However, Minister Jordan is treating this money as his personal funds, depositing it in which account he desires, transferring it to whichever country he wants, and determining what use will be made of the money, and when it will be deposited in the Consolidated Fund.” This must constitute misconduct in public office contrary to common law,” Nandlall continued.“I am seriously considering instituting private criminal charges against Minister Jordan,” he warned.Interest bearing securitiesThe bonus in question was paid to the Government’s Central Bank account by US oil giant ExxonMobil in 2016. The existence of this bonus and the renegotiated oil agreement with the company was kept an official secret until evidence of the transaction was leaked in December 2017.The correspondence of September 20, 2016 which was leaked to the media was addressed to the Governor of the Bank of Guyana, with the subject being, “Signing bonus granted by ExxonMobil – Request to open bank account”.It showed Finance Secretary at the Finance Ministry, Hector Butts, requesting that a foreign currency account be opened at the Bank in order to receive a deposit in the form of a ‘signing bonus’ to be given by the oil company.The letter had stated, “This account should not be treated as part of the Bank’s reserves. Instead, the proceeds should be held in the currency of the deposit, that is, United States dollars, and invested in secured interest-bearing securities.”At a press conference on Friday, Jordan, in providing an update on the money, said the sum was intact and had accrued US$36,169 in interest after being invested in matured US treasury bills and Canadian bonds.“I have the latest statement from the Bank of Guyana, and it says that the account has a balance of US$18,036,169. All US$18 million is still in the account, plus the interest of course. During 2018, since we did not know when the United Nations Secretary-General would make his decision, we did not put any amounts in the budget,” he said.But with Guyana taking its border controversy case against Venezuela before the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Jordan had explained the process the Government intends to use to get the money; US$15 million of which has been set aside for the case, while the remainder is for training and capacity building.“So now, what we will have to do is go for supplementary. This supplementary will be based on Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ indication as to how much they think we will have to pay the lawyers and others who provide services related to the ICJ matter,” he explained.“When finally it is passed by Parliament and signed into law by the President, we will then approach the Bank of Guyana to transfer the said identical sum to the Consolidated Fund,” he explained.

A stunning red squirrel in the woods in Muff this morning. Pic by Bren Whelan.Environmentalists are outraged after walkers left piles of litter in a wood in Inishowen which has coming a habitat for the endangered red squirrel.Bren Whelan submitted a series of pictures to Donegal Daily which he took today at stunning Lis Na Gra Woods in Muff.The images show the litter as well as signs saying the area is protected for the red squirrel.A signing warning about dumping in the woods.Bren said “During a walk this morning I took all of the images contained within this email, the contrast between how nature is at work within the woodlands is clearly highlight, whilst the irresponsible behaviour of others is sadly also shown too. “There is an ongoing issue at this woodland site, which is a sensitive natural home of the red squirrel.“It would be great if you could highlight the issue through an educational approach which might encourage woodland users to take a responsible approach to how they interact with Donegal and Ireland’s sensitive natural environment,” he said.A recent squirrel survey showed that the red squirrel is now considered extinct in counties Meath and West Meath and particularly rare in Kilkenny, Carlow and Louth.In light of this regrettable news, the result from Inishowen is even more valuable. Inishowen is now one of the few places on the island where there was a positive expansion of territory. It is believed that Inishowen’s red squirrels have expanded from neighbouring Co. Derry and the earliest records from Lis na gra wood near muff would seem to support this.’Clearly, as the survey shows, these woodlands are providing a safe haven for the Reds, and the type of impacts which are occurring in this area only serve to erode the regeneration of these red squirrels.LITTER LOUTS THREATEN HABITAT OF DONEGAL’S RED SQUIRRELS was last modified: September 3rd, 2015 by StephenShare 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:donegallitter loutRed Squirrels
