  • GRA looks to charge ‘appropriate’ rates

    first_imgSteel taxesThe Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) is denying that there have been any increases in the applicable taxes paid on steel imports into the country, but rather it is simply looking to charge the ‘appropriate’ rates.The matter was first reported by Chairperson of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Irfaan Ali, who was at the time addressing a public gathering at the Sleepin Hotel. Ali indicated that there had been an increase in the applicable rates to be charged. He told that gathering that this was circulated by Finance Minister Winston Jordan.The Finance Minister subsequently denied that he had made any such order, since it was in fact an initiative of the GRA.The revenue collection agency has since attempted to explain its actions by saying it was looking to fix some anomalies that had been discovered.According to a public missive issued by the tax body, “Recently some anomalies were identified in relation to classification of some of the steel and steel products imported by several businesses in Guyana.”The GRA’s statement said, “These anomalies led to the request for Mill Test Certificates from additional suppliers to confirm the chemical composition of the imported steel and steel products, and thereafter charge the appropriate rate of either five per cent or 10 per cent depending on that composition.”According to the GRA, “This exercise is presently being done by the Harmonised System Classification Committee of the Guyana Revenue Authority in accordance with the provisions and established guidelines of the World Customs Organisation (WCO), after which the affected parties will be so notified.”The tax collection agency has since sought to assure that, in the interim, all steel and steel products imported will be released to importers with the right retained by the GRA to collect duties at the correct rate for the said steel and steel products.last_img read more

  • Let Us Rebuild According to the Book of Nehemiah

    first_imgSince 1847 we have been building and developing Liberia. 133 years later (1980) saw destruction and demise erupt from chaos and conflicts.Have we approached the rebuilding process the right way, that is, the Godly way?The book of Nehemiah in the Holy Bible is a book about action and rebuilding.  If we follow the tried and proven steps according to Nehemiah, perhaps our outcome could be different. Remember what God did for the Israelites, he can also do for us.Evil tries to prevail over good. The enemy’s only agenda is to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10).  When the enemy attempts, we ought to turn to God like Nehemiah and the Israelites did.  When we depend on God, serve God, and trust God, the enemy will not succeed in his plan to stop work committed to God.Nehemiah, governor of Jerusalem, led the priests and Israelites in restoring and rebuilding the walls of the temple in the Holy city of Jerusalem after their return from 70 years in exile, tired of living in disgrace.After our own years in exile, war and existing out of order, we should adopt lessons from the book of Nehemiah.  Perhaps then we could succeed in redeveloping self, family, community, ministry, church, business, government and nation.Lesson of Rebuilding From the Book of Nehemiah:Before we do anything, we ought to first seek God through prayer and fasting (Nehemiah 1:4-11). When we do this we invite God into the process and with the gracious hand of God upon us, our requests will be granted, we will win favors and we will overcome obstacles.We need Godly leaders and scribes who are filled with integrity and the fear of God to lead the people right and fair (Neh. 7:2).When work begins and is progressing, rest assured there will be accusers and distracters to obstruct the work.  In opposition they will try every trick in their power to destroy and discourage the work. Nehemiah and the Israelites experienced ridicule and distraction.  Knowing God was on his side, Nehemiah did not falter or get discouraged.  Instead, in faith he insisted that the “God of heaven will give us success” (Nehemiah 2:19-20). God is pleased with faith and acts on our behalf when we live by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).Always be prepared to stand against the enemy until the work is done.  Continue to work with determination for what you believe in and what God has entrusted you with (Neh. 4:21).In opposition to the enemy, be brave and steadfast; “don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is almighty, He will fight for you and in time will frustrate the plan of the enemy” (Nehemiah 4:14-15).Don’t take advantage of anyone, taking what is not yours. Help the poor in reverence for God.  Speak to God and ask him to remember you in favor (Nehemiah 5).If there will be success, read the Bible often for guidance and direction. Get your understanding from the Word, to clarify and encourage the (spiritual) rebuilding process (Neh. 8:5 & 8).Fast and pray as you worship God for all He has done, all He is taking you through and all He is about to do, for He is a God of promise, a righteous God (Neh. 9).Especially during times of crisis, Liberians know how to turn to God, fall on their knees, and cry out to Him for help.  But after God responds and delivers us, we quickly forget the goodness of God and return to the usual offenses and disobedience that draw us further from the truth, further from the Father.  We must stop that.We should not take for granted that God is a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love and receives us every time we call, even when we worship graven images known and unknown to ourselves. Thankful for His great compassion He never leaves us, but guides us and waits patiently for us.To that end, let us recognize and own the fact that we, Liberians have been disobedient and rebellious against God one way or another, putting His law behind our backs, committing awful blasphemies.  The enemy is in many imaginable forms of evil and misfortune. When we are oppressed we cry out to God.  From heaven He hears us and in his great compassion He delivers us and rescues us from the hand of the enemy, be it coups, civil wars, or Ebola. “But as soon as they were at rest, they again did what was evil in God’s sight”.  May we not continue living down this path where God has to deliver us time after time, or we will forever have to start over, living in frustration and utter poverty while the world mocks us (Neh. 9:26-28). Rebuilding and redeveloping is not just a physical process, but a deeply spiritual one as well. As we realize this and humble ourselves before God, pray, seek His face and turn from our wicked ways, His Word promises us that when we do this, He will hear from heaven and will forgive our sins and will heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14). God’s eyes are open and His ears are attentive to the prayers of those who sincerely call upon Him in spirit and in truth. What the devil means for evil God can turn around for our good, and our God can turn the curse into a blessing.A Summary of Nehemiah: First, seek the God of heaven through prayer and fastingBe careful and strategic who you share information withGather information and draw up the plansProceed with wisdomChoose leaders filled with integrity and the fear of GodExpect the enemy to oppose God’s workDo not get distracted or discouragedDon’t be afraid of the enemy, knowing that God Almighty is more powerful and will fight for youRemain focused and determinedFight with determination for what you believe in and what God has entrusted to youPray for God to strengthen your hands, your mind and your willDon’t take advantage of anyone, don’t take what is not yoursHelp the poor in reverence for GodSpeak to God, ask Him to remember you in favorRead the Bible often for guidance, wisdom, clarification and understandingGod is a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, but do not take this for grantedDo not fall backward in disobedience, dishonoring God and expecting repeated deliveranceMay we always remember to bring a tenth of the tithes up to the house of our God and not neglect the house of GodRead the book of Nehemiah in the Holy BibleRebuilding and developing is a physical, and a deeply spiritual processMay Almighty God remember us with favor as we seek Him first in the physical and spiritual rebuildingof ourselves, our families, our communities and our nation.If we continue to do the same things, we will continue to get the same results.Let us follow a new path, a Godly path, in 2015.Wilrusha O.

  • ‘Ghost’ of 7-1 Germany mauling still haunts Brazil: Tite

    first_imgToni Kroos and Andre Schuerrle both scored twice over the 90 minutes as Germany’s attack ran riot en route to winning the World Cup title.The teams meet in a friendly for the first time since at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium and Tite says Brazil still bear the scars.“This has a huge psychological meaning – no one needs to fool themselves about that,” Tite told German magazine Kicker.“The 7-1 from the World Cup is like a ghost.“It’s present, people still talk about it, but the more you talk about it, the less this ‘ghost’ disappears.“It won’t just be a sporting challenge, but a huge emotional challenge too.“We are preparing to give our best performance, which will be important, but of course I also want a good result.”Tite has been in charge of Brazil since 2016, but Felipe Scolari was head coach for the mauling by Germany at the last World Cup.“I was watching the game at home in Sao Paulo with my wife and after the third goal went in, she started to cry,” said the 56-year-old Tite.“That started me off.“It was a moment of great inspiration for Germany, every shot was a goal – stuff like that doesn’t even happen in video games.“Sometimes you get that in football, a team comes close to perfection and that’s what happened to Germany.“The wound is still open and the match in Berlin is a part of the process of closing it.”Germany lost to Brazil on penalties in the men’s final of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, but this is their first meeting at senior international level since the 7-1 rout.Tite told Brazil reporters that Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho will replace Douglas Costa in the only change from the team which beat Russia 3-0 in Moscow on Friday.Germany head coach Joachim Loew expects to make up to five changes from the starting line-up of Friday’s 1-1 with Spain.Stars Mesut Ozil and Thomas Mueller have been released by Loew to rest while Ilkay Gundogan is expected to start in Germany’s midfield.Tite explained in depth why he sees Germany as one of the favourites to defend their World Cup title this June in Russia.“Not only because of the football, but because of something hard to attain: continuity in their performances,” said the Brazilian.“It has been a process in the years under Joachim Loew.“Tactically, Germany has a lot of options, you saw that at the Confederations Cup (which they won) with high quality young players.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Brazilian national football team coach Tite (2-R) has overseen a renaissance which has left admirers talking about a return of the team’s fabled “jogo bonito” (“beautiful game”)BERLIN, Germany, Mar 26 – Brazil coach Tite says the “ghost” of their 7-1 mauling by Germany at the 2014 World Cup still haunts the ‘Selecao’, as the teams prepare to meet on Tuesday.Brazil suffered their heaviest home defeat when Germany hit four goals in six devastating first-half minutes of the Belo Horizonte semi-final nearly four years ago.last_img read more

  • Courtois joins Real Madrid as Chelsea confirm Kepa

    first_img0Shares0000On the move: Thibaut Courtois is to join European champions Real Madrid © AFP/File / Paul ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 8 – Chelsea and Real Madrid agreed terms on Wednesday for the transfer of Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois subject to the agreement of personal terms and passing a medical.No fee was revealed for the transfer of the Courtois, who had just one more year to run on his Chelsea contract, although Spanish media claimed that the deal is worth around 35 million euros. Chelsea added in a statement that subject to the completion of the Courtois deal, Croatian midfielder Mateo Kovacic would join the Blues from Real on a season-long loan.The English giants have been forced into finding a replacement for Courtois, 26, after he failed to report for pre-season training on Monday.Courtois joined Chelsea from Genk in 2011, but spent three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid before returning to London where he won two Premier League titles in four seasons.And with his two children still resident in the Spanish capital, Courtois’s agent claimed earlier this week family commitments were a motivating factor in forcing a move to the European champions.“He has made it clear to the club that the best option for him is to move to Madrid,” Christophe Henrotay told the Sun newspaper.“For him this is a big decision because he wants to be near his family, and there is an offer in place for Chelsea to accept.”Kepa Arrizabalaga is set to become the world’s most expensive goalkeeper © AFP/File / PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOUJust weeks after Liverpool broke the record transfer fee for a goalkeeper in a deal worth up to 72.5 million euros for Brazilian international Alisson Becker, the inexperienced Arrizabalaga, 23, is now set to inherit the title of the world’s most expensive goalkeeper.Earlier on Wednesday, Bilbao confirmed that Arrizabalaga had paid his buyout clause at the league’s headquarters in Madrid to free him from his contract with Athletic.Arrizabalaga has played 53 times in La Liga for Bilbao over the last two seasons, and made his international debut in a 5-0 friendly win over Costa Rica in November 2017.He was also in the Spain squad for the World Cup in Russia as back-up to David De Gea, but has yet to make his competitive debut for Spain.But for a late change of course due to the wishes of former Real boss Zinedine Zidane, Arrizabalaga could have joined Madrid himself in January when his buyout clause was just 20 million euros.However, after that move collapsed, he signed a new seven-year deal with the Basque side that dramatically increased his release clause and has cost Chelsea dear.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
