A code of conduct for minibus operations and operators has been mooted and could soon be implemented. This in principle must be commended as well as those who are part of the process. It is vital not just for the much-needed improvement of service but for safer driving on the roadways. For far too long, this has been allowed to go unchecked, resulting in wanton dissatisfaction of commuters and road accidents, tragically some with fatalities.It should be noted that not all operators are offenders, as some continue to provide the desired service and adhere to traffic laws. Unfortunately, they seem to be in the minority thereby exposing users of public transportation to many errant operators. It must also be noted that some passengers are comfortable with the service provided by the errant ones who, without consideration for others, engage in blasting music sometimes laced with vulgar lyrics, overloading, and reckless driving.One would easily state that some schoolchildren are among those who are comfortable. However, it is not confined to that group as some adults are guilty and are abusive to passengers who object. These objections and the seeming joy the schoolchildren in question derive in some buses would serve to embolden the operators to continue their daily service and traffic violations. This has led to an unfortunate national normalisation and acceptance of this disservice meted out to commuters.What is even more unacceptable is that it happens even as Police are on the roadways. Some officers have been seen trying to curb the situation, but clearly it appears not to be holistic. There is the belief that quite a number of buses in the system are owned by Police Officers at different levels. This may be a factor in junior ranks not being willing to apply the law to those operators. Also, it is no secret that some other drivers who are pulled over for violating traffic laws call a superior officer and the rank has to back off.Again, this would make the ranks hesitant to execute their duties having being made to feel that their actions to ensure traffic order have no value. While this is not the only factor, it is a contributing one to daily transgressions on the country’s roadways. Undertaking, meandering in and out of lanes, using unauthorised roads to bypass traffic lights and stopping and moving off at random are just some of what transpire daily from some minibus operators.Recently, the Traffic Chief was reported as saying that passengers have to help police minibus operations. Some concerned passengers and other road users would have made reports to the Police. It is not clear how those have been handled in the past and what the plan is for the future. One suggestion would be for such reports and the subsequent actions taken to be made public. Following such reports, if errant operators who endanger passengers and other road users are made to feel the brunt of the law, it could become a deterrent.The call by the Traffic Chief is good, but not new. For it to work, members of the public must be made to feel that they could genuinely contribute to improving the system and not being made to feel their time is being wasted. This means that internal mechanisms within the Force would have to be in place to so accommodate. Attitudes that allow for easy accommodation would, therefore, be a concern in this dispensation. Much has been said about the manner in which some ranks relate to members of the public.Attitudes, however, are not confined to the Police, but the operators as well. While both sets could be challenging to change, it’s not impossible. At least on one front, the desired example would have to be set by those who operate buses owned by Police Officers who must so insist. Ranks must also be made to feel that if they were to intercept one such bus for violating traffic laws, they will not be reprimanded by their superiors.In addition, the use of undercover cops in some minibuses would help. If that were to be implemented (if not already), operators would eventually realise that they are targets for the improvement of the service. A combination of these efforts, if implemented and sustained, would be steps in the right direction much to the satisfaction of commuters. The longer these are held back, frustration will increase and the situation could worsen.That said, obviously the biggest challenges surrounding the code of conduct would be implementation followed by monitoring. It would not be easy. Here again, the public must be made to feel a sense of ownership, which makes it easy for them to willingly participate. Ironically, they feel the brunt of the violations by the operators and are also made to feel helpless in their quest for recourse. More than likely, they may want to gauge the effect first before committing. Who can blame them, for they have unflattering stories to tell.
There were more. Those were just the highest-profile ones. The NBA would not release exact numbers — and the totals are believed to be very low — but Pickett said the ejections of fans in the courtside area still more than doubled last season.Westbrook declined comment for this story, saying through a Rockets official that he was not comfortable discussing the matter. But the players’ union insists that the problem is getting bigger and bigger.“Last season, I began to sense even at the games I was attending that there was a certain, I’ll call it absence of civility, that permeated the games,” said Michele Roberts, the executive director of the National Basketball Players Association. “I was seeing more bad-mouthing opposing teams that were not simply ‘you suck,’ which every one of us will tolerate, but really nasty, nasty comments being directed at players.”The Celtics banned a fan for two years for directing racist chants at Cousins. Westbrook was involved in a pair of incidents in Utah that came to light last season; was offended by a fan during the 2018 playoffs by a fan calling him “boy” before a playoff game, and then last season was involved in a back-and-forth shouting match with another fan.The Jazz banned both fans for life, and Westbrook was fined $25,000 by the NBA for threatening the fan involved in last season’s incident.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES “I try very hard not to have my default answer be, ‘It’s racism.’ I really do because I don’t think that necessarily advances the argument,” Roberts said. “If it’s undoubtedly that, then I’m happy to say it.”It’s not always racism, either — Roberts also said she’s received complaints from many white players about being the subject of nastiness from fans.Amira Davis is an assistant professor at Penn State specializing in 20th Century American History with an emphasis on race, gender, sports and politics. She believes fans feel more emboldened now to say whatever they like, without fear of repercussions.“There have been plenty of sober fans yelling slurs and attacking players in the worst way,” Davis said. “I think it’s a mix of all of those things and when looking at predominantly white spaces like Utah and a largely black labor force, it ratchets it up a little bit more and makes it a lot more intense. Particularly in this political climate in which it’s very easy to project onto high-profile black athletes and pathologies and misconceptions about the black community.”Fan behavior is not just a concern in the NBA. It is being noted everywhere.Racist chants and taunts are a major issue in European soccer, including at a Euro 2020 qualifier between Bulgaria and England last week. Green Bay and Philadelphia fans fought in the stands at Lambeau Field last month. The Atlanta Braves had fans stop doing their “tomahawk chop” during the playoffs earlier this month. During the AL Championship Series between Houston and New York, Astros manager A.J. Hinch told umpires that he felt the behavior of fans at Yankee Stadium had crossed the line and that it “was becoming a dangerous situation.”“There’s no place for that,” Hinch said, referencing matters like debris being thrown from the stands toward players and taunts directed toward some of the Astros. “Both teams will agree. And it’s really hard to stop fans from doing that. But it’s also very dangerous.”And the athletes are not always just victims, either.Golfer Bio Kim was suspended by the Korean PGA for three years for making an obscene gesture at the crowd during the final round of a tournament that he won, angry because of noise from a cellphone camera.In the NBA, the league is expanding the area in arenas most closely monitored when it comes to player-fan interaction. The top-priority area used to be just those seated with feet on the court itself or maybe the first couple rows of courtside seats; now, that area goes several rows deep in every building, plus the areas where teams and referees enter and exit the court. 2 village execs nabbed in Bohol buy-bust No need to wear face masks in Metro Manila, says scientist LOOK: Taal Volcano island 2 days after eruption ‘Gago’ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. ‘People evacuated on their own’ The numbers show they’re right, and if that isn’t troubling enough race only adds to the complexity of the issue: Most NBA players are black, and it seems like most of those in the closest seats are white. Not every incident is racially motivated, though some clearly are.After high-profile incidents involving Russell Westbrook, DeMarcus Cousins, Kyle Lowry and others last season — including ones involving racist taunts — zero tolerance for abusive or hateful behavior is now to become the NBA’s policy going forward. The league is changing and toughening its code of conduct for fans, especially putting those in closest proximity to the players and the court on alert that anything over the line will lead to ejections and possibly more.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSAndray Blatche has high praise for teammate Kai SottoSPORTSBig differenceSPORTSAlmazan status stays uncertain ahead of Game 4“We’ve added any sexist language or LGBTQ language, any denigrating language in that way, anything that is non-basketball related,” said Jerome Pickett, the NBA’s executive vice president and chief security officer. “So ‘your mother’ comments, talking about your family, talking about test scores, anything non-basketball related, we’ve added that in as well as being something that we will go and pull a fan out of the seat and investigate what happened.”Westbrook and Cousins were subjected to racist taunts in Salt Lake City and Boston and the fans involved in those incidents were banned by the Jazz and Celtics. Lowry was shoved by a minority partner of the Golden State Warriors’ ownership group, seated courtside during the NBA Finals, and that person was banned from team business for a year by the league.

Season-ticket holders have been put on notice by teams that they may lose their seats even if they give their tickets to someone who goes over the line and harasses players or officials too vociferously.Fans believed to have been involved in incidents will be removed from seats while officials investigate; many times, when a security guard asks those in a certain area what just happened, no one would volunteer information with the suspected heckler present.“I think players are definitely vulnerable,” Golden State’s Draymond Green said after the Lowry incident. “Any time you’re in a situation where you can do no right, like in defending yourself, you’re vulnerable.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Daybreak as smoke, ash billows from Taal volcano PLAY LIST 01:04Daybreak as smoke, ash billows from Taal volcano01:05Poor visibility, nakaapekto sa maraming lugar sa Batangas03:028,000 pulis sa Region 4-A, tuloy ang trabaho03:57Phivolcs, nahihirapan sa komunikasyon sa Taal01:04Sold-out: Stores run out of face masks after Taal spews ash01:45Iran police shoot at those protesting plane shootdown Pacquiao gets own football kit from FIFA chief Infantino OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA – APRIL 13: Patrick Beverley #21 of the LA Clippers has words with a fan as he heads into the locker room at halftime of their game against the Golden State Warriors during Game One of the first round of the 2019 NBA Western Conference Playoffs at ORACLE Arena on April 13, 2019 in Oakland, California.

Dear Editor,Rice farmers are once again tasked with the struggle to repel the ever advancing infestation of paddy bugs in their rice fields. These insects are the farmers’ greatest fear in every rice-farming community. They evolve unnoticed and reach maturity in a short space of time, then spread rapidly leaving behind massive destruction to farmers’ rice crops. If left unchecked, the financial losses can go into the hundreds of millions and pose a serious threat to the general well-being of the rice industry.To eradicate paddy bugs, we must have a holistic effort by the relevant branches of the Ministry of Agriculture, more specifically the Entomology Service Department. This very important scientific establishment deludes the farmers with its services. We are only keen and committed farmers; we are not all entomologists or insect exterminators.With such a devastating outbreak of paddy bug infestation, the Guyana Rice Development Board (GRDB) has been very mean with rice farmers everywhere; there have been few notifications in the print and electronic media and the wool is pulled over the farmers’ eyes. Extension field visits take the form of touch and go. Poor fellows, they have limited man power.Would it be too much to ask the GRDB Board of Directors to print enough flyers on how to manage the infestation of paddy bugs? A flyer would be written instructions in the farmers’ hands that can be used for reference any time. Very few rice farmers are totally illiterate. Remember how well lit the Ministry of Agriculture building was not so long ago and it was adjudged the winner and got the first prize? A fraction of what was spent there could print all the flyers we need. But then who cares?The negligible information on electronic media comes at times not convenient to the rice farmers, and to our dismay, there is no programme guide. We are not asking for prime time, but reasonable time; beyond eight o’clock is not the appropriate time to air such vital programmes for rice farmers. At the above time, most rice farmers would be in bed in deep sleep rejuvenating enough body energy for the next day’s tasks.Editor, a question for all stakeholders in the rice industry- have we ever seen or heard of a time when the importers of agro-chemicals applied for permission from the Environmental Protection Agency to dispose of expired toxic agro-chemicals? Intuitive knowledge and shared common experience tells me that these obviously do not have to take this course of action. They usually dump their obsolete products on unsuspecting rice farmers – at a premium price too. This very mean act takes place under the eyes of the Bureau of Standards. The resilience of insects to such chemicals can lead to continuous damage.We had used Breston powder to kill snails immediately after sowing this current crop. The results were very poor.The chemical failure caused all the plots to sustain similar damage. Every good farmer will tell you when the snails did the damage by looking at the internal drainage systems.At this juncture, I am making a citizen’s appeal to the Bureau of Standards and the Environmental Agency for them to do their respective agency’s work the way it should be done.Sincerely,Ganga Persaud read more
Maarty Leunen sank twofree throws with 0.5 seconds left to tie it at 64-64 and force overtime. The Ducks ran off 10 unanswered points in the extra period to take a 74-64 lead before WSU’s Derrick Low hit two 3-pointers and sank four free throws to close. Trailing 60-51 with four minutes remaining in regulation, but Brooks and Tajuan Porter, who finished with 17 points, sank 3-pointers to bring the Ducks within a basket before Aron Baynes fouled Leunen, who finished with 10 points. Aaron Brooks returned from a suspension to score 31 points and help No. 7 Oregon beat No. 20 Washington State 77-74 in overtime to claim sole possession of second place in the Pacific-10 Conference on Saturday night. Brooks, the league’s leading scorer, surpassed his 18.4point average as visting Oregon (19-2, 7-2) stormed back in overtime after trailing for all but the final second. He was benched for disciplinary reasons when the Ducks were upset by Washington 89-77 on Thursday. Low led the Cougars (17-4, 6-3) with 37 points. He made 9 of 16 3-point attempts, including two in overtime. Chris Matthews and Kyle Weaver each had 13 points for WSU. It marked the first game that Washington State was ranked and hosting a ranked opponent since 1950. No. 4 North Carolina 92, No. 17 Arizona 64: Freshman Ty Lawson scored a career-high 18 points as the visiting Tar Heels routed the Wildcats, handing Lute Olson his worst home loss in 24 seasons as Arizona’s coach. Five other Tar Heels scored in double figures as NorthCarolina (19-2) won its fourth straight. The Tar Heels played without No. 2 scorer and rebounder Brandan Wright and reserve swingman Marcus Ginyard, who had stomach illnesses. They missed neither. North Carolina, which whipped the Wildcats 86-69 in Chapel Hill last season, ended Arizona’s 29-game home winning streak against non-conference opponents, the fourth-longest in the nation. Chase Budinger scored 16points, all in the secondhalf, for Arizona (14-6), which lost for the fifth time in seven games. Arizona went 1-for-23 beyond the 3-point arc. Washington 91, Oregon St. 74: Jon Brockman matched his career high 25 points as the Huskies (13-7, 3-6)completed their first weekend Pac-10 sweep this season with the victory over the visiting Beavers (9-13, 1-8). The Huskies, who beat seventh-ranked Oregon on Thursday, are now 13-1 at home but 0-6 on the road. Brockman, the 6-foot-7 sophomore forward, made nine of 12 shot attempts and was 7 of 8 at the free-throw line. He had been averaging 13.2 points per game. OSU, which has lost four in a row, was led by Josh Tarver with 22 points. Kyle Jeffers, hitting 7 of 8 attempts, finished with 14 points. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

The families of 11 commuters killed in the 2005 Metrolink train crash – and more than 100 other people who were injured – can move forward with their lawsuit against Metrolink and the MTA, a Superior Court judge ruled on Thursday. In a suit filed in January, the victims and family members claimed Metrolink and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which owns the right-of-way, was negligent for operating a “push-pull” system. Under a push-pull system, the locomotive pushes lighter cars ahead of it traveling to one destination and then pulls them on its return. Critics say when the train is pushing, passengers in the front cars are endangered because they are not protected by the massive engine during collisions. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe Christmas Truce of 1914 proved that peace is possibleSuperior Court Judge Emilie Elias rejected Metrolink’s request to throw the case out. The agency had argued that the Federal Railroad Administration oversees rail operations and since the push-pull system was authorized by the administration, Metrolink was in compliance with federal law and could not be sued. The victims’ attorneys call it a partial victory. “The MTA and Metrolink cannot derail these cases by hiding behind federal law,” said Clark Aristei, an attorney representing more than a dozen victims. The push-pull system came under increased scrutiny after the disastrous train crash Jan. 27, 2005. A train in the push mode plowed into a sport utility vehicle parked on the tracks by a suicidal man. The train then slammed into an oncoming train and a parked train. It was the worst accident in Metrolink’s history. But a federal study shortly after the crash found there is no greater risk of derailment in push mode than when cars are pulled by a locomotive. “We stand behind our system of operation, and we believe in it,” said Denise Tyrell, a spokeswoman for Metrolink. Tyrell would not comment further on the judge’s ruling until the board could review it. MTA officials declined to comment on pending litigation. firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3741160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
