Elimination of violence against womenThe University of Guyana Berbice Campus on Monday observed the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women with several programmes targeting young males with the aim of educating them about violence against women.This is the 19th year the United Nations has set aside a day for elimination of violence against women. At the UG Berbice Campus, social work classes have been hosting programmes annually in observance of the UN day from the first through the fourth year.Previously, much of the focus was on women, and empowering them. However, Lecturer Paulette Henry explained that this year it was different, with the focusPersons at the UGBC elimination of violence against women fairbeing on young males.“We had, over the years, activities that would have targeted the entire population; but for this year specifically, we wanted to target younger males — teen males and youth — and we have worked in collaboration with the Ministry of Social Protection,” she said.Henry noted that two officers for that ministry are fourth-year students and are being trained to take the skills they acquired at the university into the communities in which they work.“So we feel that with the issues that we have in Berbice, the University has a responsibility to be a part of the conformation of the actions that are necessary to reduce the amount of violence that we are having,” she said.Meanwhile, Coordinator of the Division of Social Sciences, Chelsea Halley-Crawford, noted that 16 days have been set aside in observance.November 25 is set aside as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.According to Halley-Crawford, Monday’s activity was referred to as their orange day event, during which they were trying to promote ways other than violence which can be used to solve social issues.During the workshop, persons who were victims of domestic violence participated in sharing the anti-violence message.Halley-Crawford said the Violence against Women workshop targeted males since, according to studies, they are mostly the aggressors in domestic disputes.“We tried to focus on men, since they are the dominant figure in the home. If we can get men to understand that there are several ways in resolving an issue — it doesn’t have to be hitting; and if we can get them to learn ways of coping and dealing with issues, we can move from where we currently are in society, and we will not have to hear of the murder or abuse of another woman,” she said.She said that, at the 16 days of activism, the University is hoping that at least one male would have changed.“Everything starts with one, and if we can have one step, it’s progress.”Fourth year student Anson Barrington told this publication that the class had organised a health both on the Campus.“We are promoting women’s health in observance of observed the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.” Pamphlets on women health issues were available on campus.Another fourth-year student, Sharron Gilbert, further explained that sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and other illnesses are prevalent among females. She said persons at the health booth also received information on depression and other related conditions. Meanwhile, Henry said the university has been making an impact, since persons in Berbice have been calling to enquire about the workshops and programs.

Greuel is a native of the San Fernando Valley and first worked in City Hall as an intern for former Mayor Tom Bradley. She also worked for the Clinton administration and for DreamWorks SKG before running for council. firstname.lastname@example.org (213) 978-0390 Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, passing up a chance for a third term on the Los Angeles City Council, took out papers Thursday to run for city controller in 2009. The action will allow Greuel – the first announced candidate to succeed Controller Laura Chick, who is being termed out of office – to begin raising money and coordinating her campaign for the post. “I just felt it was time to get into the race,” said Greuel, 45, who represents the 2nd Council District, heads the council’s Transportation Committee and serves on its Budget and Finance Committee. “I think I could have won a third term on council, but the opportunity to be controller is something that will allow me to concentrate on fiscal responsibility and bring the same attention to city services as Laura Chick does.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A DONEGAL sheep farmer has agreed before the High Court not to interfere with the carrying out of electricity line upgrade works on his land.The court heard the line is of vital importance in supplying electricity supply for the whole of Donegal.The ESB and Eirgrid plc last week sought injunctions preventing Patrick Gallagher, Galdonagh, Manorcunningham, from interfering with or obstructing the work as well as orders requiring him to remove or remedy any obstructions which have been placed on the land at Listak. Yesterday, Mr Gallagher undertook before Mr Justice Paul Gilligan to allow the ESB onto his lands and not to interfere with the work.The court heard the works are needed on a 110kw power line and if not done could affect the entire electricity supply in Donegal.The Irish Independent reports that Mr Gallagher, representing himself, said he had been in dispute with the ESB over compensation.He said he was entitled such compensation from the ESB from work done on the lands in the 1990’s and also claimed there had been damage to his land during previous such works.The court heard it had been agreed outstanding issues over compensation would go to arbitration.The case was adjourned to June.FARMER AGREES NOT TO INTERFERE WITH ESB UPGRADE WORK ON HIS LAND was last modified: April 10th, 2014 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:ESBfarmerHIGH COURT
