Online banking has become burdensome

Posted on by

first_imgDear Editor,It is out of frustration that I have decided to make public the travesty one has to go through when doing online transactions with Republic Bank Ltd (Guy). I have noticed that the bank has decided to compensate for the inconvenience caused due to the transition and upgrade of its electronic system, for which they should be applauded.However, one issue that needs urgent attention is the online purchasing system using its card. As a Guyanese, I am not sure if it is applicable to other territories as well in which they provide similar services, for me to make an online purchase and/or transaction I must first make contact with the bank’s head office in Trinidad and Tobago for them to provide access to my account, which was opened in Guyana.It is burdensome to make calls to Trinidad and Tobago every time one has to do an online transaction because access is given only for 24 hours.Hence, a subsequent transaction would necessitate another call and note that not all times you will get through easily or may have wait and go through extensions to get to the individual authorised to open the account. In addition to the inconvenience, the cost to call to Trinidad and Tobago must be borne by the account holder.The account holder is no way at fault if the bank cannot provide proper security for the transaction and payment; that is the responsibility of the bank and as such should be the one to provide such calls free of cost to the account holder or return the remittance.It is unfair because I did not apply to any office outside of Guyana to initiate any process to open my account and I was never told subsequently, that I would need to make contact with its headquarters in Trinidad for any transaction.Through this medium, I am calling on the Bank of Guyana to make the necessary declaration to protect the citizens from being unfairly treated and ensure that Republic Bank Ltd (Guy) compensates for all the calls made for this purpose over the years.Yours sincerely,Name submittedlast_img read more

Killbillies looking to give Quesnel a rough welcome to Fort St. John

Posted on by

first_imgAmanda Rathburn is one of players for the Killbillies. She says the team is anticipating evening the score with Quesnel on Saturday night.“It’s going to be a good hard hitting game, and we are very much looking forward to it,” she says.Despite the rivalries that exist between teams, the players are part of a tight knit community and often get together after the games are over.- Advertisement -“No matter what happens on the track, and there will be some big hits, we go to the after party,” Rathburn explains. “Our main goal is no matter what happens, you win the after party.”League play almost didn’t happen this year as a result of a number of referees dropping out before the season was to begin. To make sure the league was able to play this year, the Stonebridge Hotel stepped up to fly in an official from Victoria to officiate the games. In addition, Saturday morning and afternoon there will be a clinic for people interested in becoming a ref for the sport.“The classroom portion will be held at the Stonebridge Hotel [at 9 a.m.], and then after that they will be on skates from 1 until 3 at the North Peace Arena,” explains Rathburn. “We provide insurance through Canadian Roller Derby Insurance. If someone is interested, they can get in touch with us via our Facebook.”Advertisement The team is always looking for new players, so those wanting to officiate or play the game are encouraged to contact the team on their Facebook page.last_img read more

Brad Fast back in Fort St. John to lead North Peace Alumni Hockey School

Posted on by

first_imgThe North Peace Alumni Hockey School runs from Monday to Friday this week, and joining Fast as coaches for the camp are Scott Ford, Phil Hiscock, Mike Hofstrand, Dennis Robertson, Braden Pimm, Steven Fast, Taylor Rovatti, and Linda Jensen. Fast says they do the camp not only as a way to support local hockey players, but also because as instructors, they enjoy passing on lessons of the game.“I think it’s a lot of fun, I like doing this kind of stuff, this is our ninth year doing this,” Fast says. “We started this to give back to the community, we had a group of really good players that came out of here, and wanted in some way to give back. We were all scattered throughout the States, so we thought this is a good idea to come back year and give back some of the lessons we’ve learned.”Those taking part will start off with instruction on the fundamentals, and will eventually move on to a variety of skills including putting pucks on the net, and how to play when in possession of the puck.- Advertisement -“We like to start out first and foremost with skating, gotta build foundations starting with that. Then we’re going to work on progressing to different things throughout the week,” Fast explains. “We’re going to do lots of shooting, lots of stick handling. We like to cover all the basis here so you get a little taste of everything.”Despite the camp just being started, Fast and the coaches have been impressed with what they’ve seen on the ice up to this point, and may consider upping the intensity to make things more challenging for those taking part.  “We’ve been on the ice for three sessions, we’ve got some guys out here that are travel players, and it’s very good skill,” he admits. “It’s good for us, we’ll have to re-tool some of our practice plans to make it more challenging for them.”Advertisementlast_img read more

L.A. gets home work

Posted on by

first_imgDefense, bench play, and the productivity of Lamar Odom and the big men are all issues for the Lakers, who stressed patience but also indicated that they know the importance of turning things around quickly. Since a momentum-building victory over San Antonio on Jan.17, the Lakers have lost nine of 13 games. “The West is so tough,” forward Luke Walton said. “We know if we don’t start winning, we’re just going to keep falling and falling (down the standings).” EL SEGUNDO – The Lakers returned to the comforts of home – bed, meals, sunshine – but they couldn’t escape the figurative stench of their East Coast road trip, which ended with a 3-5 record. The Lakers have two home games – tonight against New York and Thursday against Cleveland – before the All-Star break, and a sense of urgency set in during a lengthy practice Monday afternoon. Not that Walton can do a lot about it right now. Additional tests Monday revealed that Walton has nothing more than a sprained ankle, which was previously diagnosed, but he continues to experience pain while attempting basketball drills. Walton will wait at least onemore week before practicing again. So the Lakers, without Walton and Kwame Brown, will attempt to get some revenge on the Knicks and Cavaliers, the teams that served as troubled bookends for their long and troubling road trip. “It’s still early,” Odom said. “We’re still growing as a team. We’ve got a little break coming up, so hopefully we can go into that strong and rest up for a nice run. “There’s still 30 games to play. We’re all talking about this now, but if we put a little streak together, we’ll forget about this. We’re going to make the playoffs. We’re trying to position ourselves for home court.” Defense was the theme Monday, not surprisingly. In their past three games the Lakers have allowed 93, 96 and 99points, and during the eight-game trip they averaged 95.6 points allowed. center_img “We’ve got the athletes and youth and we’re quick,” Odom said. “We just need the right mentality.” Resting up: Kobe Bryant was a no-show on the practice court, taking a day of rest prescribed by coach Phil Jackson after Bryant played 44 minutes on Sunday. Bryant played all but 18 seconds of the second half and nearly carried the Lakers to victory. “He feels pretty good,” Jackson said of Bryant. “I’ve been a guy who wants guys to practice a lot, but at his age and with his experience, practice can be more of a debilitating thing.” Another week: It’s still unknown whether Walton will be able to play a week from Wednesday, when the Lakers resume their season after the All-Star break. Walton walked on an exercise machine during practice and seemed encouraged that Monday’s tests revealed nothing more than the damage normally associated with a Grade I ankle sprain. “It feels good when I’m walking around. It feels like I’m going to be able to play,” Walton said. “But then I do some basketball moves and there’s some pain. … It’s just something I’m going to have to let settle down for a week.” rich.hammond@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Advocacy group says proposed ticketing scheme ignores due process

Posted on by

first_imgThe driver’s advocacy group Sense BC – which advocates for sensible road safety laws and enforcement – is incensed over the government’s move to take fighting a traffic ticket out of the courts and putting it in front of a tribunal.“Unfortunately with this government, the willingness to erase due process seems to be too frequent,” co-founder Ian Tootill says. “Civil Asset Forfeiture is one example and this is yet another, and no I am not happy about it.”Tootill says like the much maligned photo radar idea, this so-called “e-ticketing” scheme flies in the face of due process.- Advertisement -He argues it automatically makes ticketed drivers guilty and puts the onus on them to prove their innocence instead of requiring the justice system to prove their guilty.“Well photo radar is a de facto conviction – it’s up to the accused to prove that he’s innocent,” Tootill goes on to say. “The idea of this e-ticketing is very similar – you’re not going to be able to face your accuser. The accused is going to be put at a disadvantage.”To make matters worse, he predicts with no appeal process for drivers, it gives police officers a licence to write tickets like there’s no tomorrow.Advertisement “I’ve spoken to ex-police officers about it, and they believe that if it’s much easier to write tickets and not have them contested; it’ll be much easier to have ticket blitzes knowing it’s an easier way to raise money.”In issuing the thumbs down from the advocacy group, Mr. Tootill also said the province seems hell bent on pushing forward with what he calls this ill thought out legislation, even though it will cost taxpayers more in court fights and patchwork fixes to make it legal.last_img read more

Lukaku admits he will have to ‘work harder than ever before’ at Man United

Posted on by

first_img Romelu Lukaku celebrates scoring for Everton 1 Striker Romelu Lukaku appears to have learned from his previous experience under Jose Mourinho after admitting he will have to “work harder than ever before” when his move to Manchester United is confirmed.The Belgium international is on the verge of completing a potential world-record move to Old Trafford, with the Red Devils paying an initial £75million plus several add-ons.It will reunite him with United boss Mourinho, the man who sold him as a raw 21-year-old at Chelsea after just 15 matches and no goals.Lukaku has improved significantly since then, scoring 33 Premier League goals in his last two seasons at Goodison Park, but knows he will have to go up another level under the Portuguese at United.“Now it’s time to work hard, work harder than I ever did before and I’m willing to do it and hopefully it will come (off) a good way,” he told ESPN after it was announced United had reached an agreement with Everton on Saturday.Asked about joining United, he said that the club had “probably the best manager in the world”.“(The club are managed by) A guy who I wanted to play for since I was 10 years old so now to have an opportunity to play under him again is great,” he added.“I have to work harder than I am doing now and I know the road is still far but I am willing to go on that path and grab that opportunity that I get.“It’s the biggest club in the world. It’s a club that’s hungry to win the league again, to be dominant in the world again.“This is the sort of opportunity that I always wanted since I was a child and when they came calling, I didn’t have to think twice.“I’m really delighted to hopefully be part of their history. Who would say no to the biggest club in the world? The best stadium in England, the best fans, it’s the perfect opportunity.“I always said that I wanted to play for a team that was challenging for every trophy that there is, and I think Manchester United at the minute wants to be that dominant team, that dominant force.“And if you look at their history it says enough and to become part of a club like them is something that I really wanted, and I’m thankful for the opportunity that they gave me.”Lukaku is set to join up with his new team-mates on Monday when they land in Los Angeles, where the Belgian has been holidaying with close friend and new team-mate Paul Pogba. United begin their 18-day pre-season tour from there which includes friendlies with Los Angeles Galaxy and Real Salt Lake, plus matches against Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup.Lukaku appeared to confirm reports he had already undergone his medical with United in a series of posts on his Instagram account.The 24-year-old posted a picture of him with the words “Medicals…” before further images and text saying “When u waiting for the next check up…” and “On to the next one…”The next picture was of a bare-chested Lukaku lying down with what appeared to be electrodes attached to his torso, accompanied by the words: “Please come save me”Lukaku then posted a picture of him signing the Manchester United shirt of a young fan, with the striker saying “First Manchester United fan i’ve met..#Blessed #Thankful”.He finished off with a picture of him giving the camera a thumbs up with the word “Finito”.last_img read more
