Traffic Chief, Linden IslesThere has been a slight increase in fatal accidents recorded in the country for the first half of 2019 when compared to the same period for last year.The combination of speeding and driving under the influence of alcohol accounted for a large percentage of these accidents.This is according to Deputy Police Commissioner and Traffic Chief, Linden Isles, who during an exclusive interview with Guyana Times on Friday explained that these tragedies could have been prevented.He stated that in total, there have been 49 accidents recorded throughout Guyana since the commencement of 2019, resulting in the deaths of 52 individuals.In A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara), there were 13 accidents which claimed the lives of 14 persons while in B Division (Berbice), 14 accidents occurred with the same amount of deaths recorded.C Division (East Coast Demerara) recorded five accidents whereby six persons lost their lives and D Division (West Bank Demerara-East Bank Essequibo) had 11 accidents with 11 deaths.Meanwhile, in E Division (Linden-Kwakwani), there were three lives lost as a result of two accidents. F Division (Interior locations) recorded one accident with one life being lost and in G Division (Essequibo Coast-Islands), there were three accidents recorded with three deaths.“That will give you 49 accidents with 52 deaths overall which is a slight increase. We had 51 deaths last year from 44 accidents. Over 75 per cent of these fatal accidents were caused by driving under the influence of alcohol and speeding, a combination of these two.”Guyana Times understands that in 2018, of the 51 deaths recorded as a result of fatal accidents, 41 were males while 10 were females. Of this total, two were children.Meanwhile, for 2019 to date, 42 persons who died from being involved in a fatal accident were males while 10 were females. Of the 52 deaths for 2019 so far, four were children.The most recent fatal accident occurred on Wednesday evening after a truck carrying logs turned turtle while climbing a hill on the Linden-Lethem trail. The dead man has been identified as 35-year-old Anil Persaud of Norton Street, Lodge, Georgetown.It was reported that the porter, along with two others who were inside of the truck at the time of the accident, are said to have sustained minor injuries and were admitted at the Linden Hospital Complex, Region 10, for treatment.Police preliminary investigations revealed that at about 14:00h, Persaud was driving the motor lorry bearing registration number BBC 9430 and upon reaching the top of a hill, the trailer, which was loaded with logs, suddenly began to descend.As this began to happen, Persaud attempted to change gears and direction but instead, the vehicle toppled downhill. Although the porter and other occupants made it out of the wreckage, Persaud was said to have been pinned in the wrecked cabin for quite some time.Nevertheless, he was pulled from the mangled cabin several hours later.The mangled truck after the accidentDead, Anil Persaud
But Mourinho has yet to win an away game against a fellow “big six” side since taking charge at Old Trafford, with seven games at Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham yielding just three points and one goal.That run includes a 2-0 defeat at Arsenal last season as Wenger recorded his first competitive victory over Mourinho at the 16th attempt.The pair have shared a tumultuous relationship over the years but Wenger does not believe Mourinho, renowned for his defensive tactics in such matches, will only be eyeing a clean sheet in north London this weekend.Asked whether he expected Mourinho to park the bus with a defensive outlook on Saturday, Wenger replied: “No, I don’t expect anything special.“I just expect us to be ready to recover now. Man United is a strong team and I expect us just to cope with the problems they will give us. They will attack as well. They will not only defend.“It is a game between Arsenal and Man United at home. I just want to focus and to prepare well my team, and give my team a good chance to win the game.“Man United is doing well at the moment, we are doing well at the moment, so it looks to be a promising game.”Arsenal welcome United having won their previous three Premier League games to move into the Premier League top four.Victory in the north London derby at home to Tottenham was followed up with a last-gasp win at Burnley before Huddersfield were dispatched 5-0 at the Emirates on Wednesday.That was a 12th successive home win as Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil all got on the scoresheet while Olivier Giroud hit a brace.It was not all positives for Wenger, however, as Lacazette was substituted at half-time with a groin injury, while Sanchez was also replaced late on after feeling his hamstring.Wenger expects Sanchez to be fit to face United, but said club-record signing Lacazette will “certainly be out” of the contest.“Sanchez had a little hamstring problem, that’s why I took him off, but I think he will be all right,” he said.“Look, we have offensive weapons, you know. We have Danny Welbeck, we have Giroud, we have Jack Wilshere who all came on. They are all offensive players.“I will see what I do for Saturday but ideally you wanted him (Lacazette) there.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is not expecting Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to set his team up defensively when the sides clash despite his reputation for “parking the bus” in big matches © AFP/File / PAUL ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 30 – Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is not expecting Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to set his team up defensively when the sides clash on Saturday despite his reputation for “parking the bus” in big matches.United travel to the Emirates Stadium sitting second in the Premier League and on the back of a 4-2 win at Watford in midweek.

14 June 2009South African athletes struggled to make an impression as foreigners once again dominated the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon in Cape Town on Saturday, with John Wachira of Kenya and Elena Nurgalieva of Russia claiming the men’s and women’s wins respectively in the 56-kilometre ultra-marathon.Zimbabwe’s Marco Mambo, after wins in 2004, 2005, and 2008, was the man to watch, with his previous record of success. His win in 2008 was the fourth in five years for Zimbabweans; Moses Njodzi won in 2006, while Bethuel Netshifhefhe won for South Africa in 2007.Like a wise veteranWachira, meanwhile, was contesting the Two Oceans Marathon for the first time, but the man from the famed Rift Valley, ran the race like a wise veteran, timing his run perfectly to catch Mambo near the end and pass him with the finish in sight.He crossed the finishing line in three hours, 10 minutes and six seconds, with Mambo in second place 46 seconds behind him. Third place went to Mpesela Ntlotsoeu. Butiki Jantjies, in sixth, led the South African challenge.The Nurgalieva twins were the hot favourites to win the women’s race. Elena had previously won it twice, in 2004 and 2005, while Olesya’s win in 2008 was in the second fastest time ever recorded in the race, 3:34:53, trailing only the record set by Frith van der Merwe in 1989 of 3:30:36.Comfortable and enjoyableRunning together, the sisters ran what they described as their most comfortable and enjoyable Two Oceans ever.They finished in 3:40:43, their slowest time yet in the event, but enough for a huge margin of 18 minutes over third placed Samukeliso Moyo of Zimbabwe.Maybe they were saving something for the Comrades Marathon, which has been moved forward this year so as not to clash with the Fifa Confederations Cup. It takes place on 24 May.While the Nurgalieva twins opted to contest the Two Oceans Marathons, a number of other leading runners chose to skip it because of the limited five-week break between the country’s two leading ultra-marathons.SA’s bestSouth Africa’s best performer was Farwa Mentoor, who claimed fourth place in 15 seconds less than four hours, while Adinda Kruger ended fifth in 4:03:36.Mentoor has been South Africa’s most consistent ultra-marathon performer for many years now. Before Riana van Niekerk finished sixth in the 2008 Comrades Marathon, two places ahead of her, Mentoor had been South Africa’s leading runner for six consecutive years.Stephen Mokoka was the sole South African to be crowned champion. He captured line honours in the men’s half-marathon, finishing eight seconds ahead of runner-up Wirimai Juwawo in 63:42. Lusapho April was third in 63:55.Namibia’s Helaria Johannes won the women’s half-marathon in 73:34. Over two minutes behind her, Mamarolla Tjoka claimed second place, with Tabitha Tsatsa in third.

Big-hitting Australian teenager Jaimee Fourlis served up a major scare for Caroline Wozniacki at Roland Garros on Monday, making light of the 300-plus ranking places separating them to push the 11th seeded Dane to three sets.Wozniacki, who appeared to be carrying the after-effects of a lower back injury that forced her to retire during last week’s Strasbourg tournament, pulled away towards the end of a testy encounter, winning 6-4 3-6 6-2 in just over two hours.Wildcard Fourlis, aged 17 and at 337 the lowest-ranked player in the main draw, was the stronger for much of the first two sets, keeping Wozniacki pinned at the back of the court with blistering drives off both wings.But the Dane, making her 10th appearance at Roland Garros, showed her greater experience at key moments, winning both her breaks points in the opening set while the Australian converted just one out of five.Playing her first French Open and only her second grand slam after reaching the second round of her home major in January, Fourlis refused to be overawed, keeping up a running commentary with her courtside entourage and the umpire.Leading 4-1 in the second set, the Australian lost some of her focus after disputing a line call that went against her, dropping that game and the next. She recovered to break Wozniacki again before serving out to love to take the set.But as Fourlis began to take issue with other calls, the Dane took control in the third.

APTN National NewsGARDEN RIVER FIRST NATION, Ont.-Anishinabe leaders in Ontario are planning a traffic slowdown and a brief highway blockade for Monday to remind the federal government First Nations communities need to be consulted on any planned reforms to First Nations education, says Garden River band Coun. Darrell Boissoneau.Boissoneau said there is growing concern among leaders in the Anishinabek Grand Council that the federal government is planning to centralize control over First Nations education with a third-party agency without first consulting with First Nations communities.“We need to be consulted, to have input,” said Boissoneau.Garden River is hosting the Anishinabek Grand Council meeting on Monday and the planned rally and action on Hwy 17 is planned for between 10 a.m. to 12 a.m.Boissoneau said Assembly of First Nations national Chief Shawn Atleo is expect to attend the rally and be a keynote speaker.Boissoneau said a brief shutdown of the highway may be necessary to accommodate the planned rally speeches.“Too many of our young people feel powerless over their own futures as they are caught in the ditches of welfare dependency and despair. The current education system is failing our youth,” said Garden River Chief Lyle Sayers, in a statement. “Quality culture-based education is the key to addressing the educational achievement gap. Changes to First Nations education require meaningful First Nation consultation.”
