Dear Editor,There are many reasons available for blaming the crime situation, and many people are investing their hard earned money for some sort of protection. One of the most comforting means for them is security cameras. Now, a lot of unscrupulous people are obtaining outdated/condemned CCTV systems from overseas and selling them to people at exorbitant fees, and these systems do not provide the expected proper service. Some of these dishonest people are using footage from other systems, and even from what makes the news, and promoting themselves on social media as if the system they are selling is responsible. Whilst they cannot be charged for false promotion, the unsuspecting victims’ money is being wasted, because they eventually have to buy new systems because they are not getting the service they expected from the waste they purchased.Quite a few people have been scammed, and l bluntly told them so after I was asked to look at their system when they encountered problems.A while back, I penned a series of letters advising on the type of system and camera they should look for, and setting for their system to help get better footage.Editor, a woman’s shop at Zeelugt was recently twice broken into. This happened one Wednesday night, and again on the following Saturday night. A few weeks after, thieves again broke into the shop. On each of those occasions, she suffered great losses. Now she has a security system installed, but when she could not locate the footage on the DVR, she called me after the first two times. I went, and was able to locate the footage, which showed four boys committing the crime. The footage could not identify any of the criminals properly, so no one was charged. That was because the cameras were not properly set, and the lighting was bad. On my advice, she rearranged the cameras and lights, and was quite pleased with the results after. The footage was hard to locate because the CMOS battery had gone bad in the DVR, thus every time the DVR is switched off or there is a blackout, the DVR goes back to the manufacturing timing and starts recording. So, what you have is a DVR with multiple footage of same dates and timings all over the hard drive.One way to eradicate that problem is: if you notice your DVR timing/date going back to the default settings or DVR malfunctioning, chances are the CMOS battery is bad and should be changed immediately, because definitely you would encounter problems when you try to retrieve footage.These are simple problems, but apparently many so-called experts cannot solve those minor problems. Many are setting cameras in such a way that it would be impossible to capture an intruder’s face properly if that person is wearing a cap. Criminals are becoming wary of cameras, and people should explore the possibility of installing cameras in concealed places. Security system installation has many issues, but as I have stated, these are some of the main issues. I hope people would have their security apparatus fixed, so they could get help from them.Sincerely,Sahadeo Bates
…new tree in the coming days – RahamanThe 12th annual Rahaman’s Park Christmas tree light-up went off without any hitches on Sunday night, following the near cancellation of the event when the 70-foot artificial tree fell at the hands of suspected saboteurs.Proprietor Ray Rahaman has indicated that he hopes to have the tree replaced within 7 to 10 days. However, its replacement, a similar 70-foot, but evergreen Christmas tree, illuminated the night sky in the sight of the Rahamans, Business Minister Dominic Gaskin, and the exuberant faces of many children from contiguous communities, who were earlier given toys and snacks at the event, which drew a sizable gathering.The evening’s proceedings began with the lively sound of steel pan music playing the popular rendition “Merry Christmas to You”. Other attention grabbing performances included an up-tempo medley of “Have yourself a merry little Christmas”, “Gloria” and “Feliz-Navidad!” by the Queen’s College Music Ensemble.The all-male group released the sounds of the acoustic and bass guitar as they played their set. Additionally, a saxophonist and dance group also kept the audience entertained.Business Minister Dominic Gaskin, in brief remarks, observed that it was indeed unfortunate that the old tree, which stood at a major road intersection, could no longer be seen.Gaskin, who also holds the Tourism portfolio, said many tourists have become accustomed to seeing the tall structure during the holiday season, in addition to other erected depictions at the various religious and cultural festivals. He encouraged those gathered to continue acts of goodwill, as this is the season of giving.The event’s host, Mr Rahaman, thanked the business community for supporting the event, and for throwing in their lot when the event was almost halted following the tree’s collapse. He noted that the Pritipaul Singh Investment Company donated the use of its 100-foot crane to hoist the lights onto the alternate Christmas tree.The Rahaman’s Park Christmas tree light-up has become synonymous with the holidays season in Guyana.

Finn Harps play their first competitive game of the season away from Finn Park on Sunday afternoon next when they make the trip to the capital to take on Shamrock Rovers’ second string at Tallaght Stadium (kick-off 3pm).The game will mark Harps’ first ever senior game in Tallaght and also a first of four games against the Rovers ‘B’ squad who become the first club in Ireland to field two teams in the League of Ireland in the same season.Regardless of the controversy in some quarters that surrounded the decision of the League to allow a club to field two teams, Harps will make the trip to Tallaght on Sunday hoping to build on last weekend’s results in the League and Cup at Finn Park. And with Rovers having the ability to include up to four of their first-team squad in Sunday’s team, Harps boss Ollie Horgan knows the task that faces his team will be a tough one.“We have a hugely difficult game ahead of us on Sunday,” said boss Horgan as he prepares for his first away game in charge of Harps.“They have a very talented young team in Shamrock Rovers and when you add in a few of their professional players from the first team from Friday nights Premier League game, they will present a very difficult proposition on what is a massive pitch at Tallaght.”Horgan got his tenure as boss off to a decent start with a scoreless draw against Waterford United at Finn Park last Friday night and followed it up with a 3-2 victory over Cockhill Celtic in the League Cup three days later. “I had mixed thoughts after Friday’s game,” said Horgan. “I was disappointed with the first half performance and we were lucky not to have been behind at half time.“But I was much happier with the effort in second half. Although the best chance on the night fell to Paddy Barrett for Waterford, we also could have sneaked it with chances that fell to Ruairi Keating and Sean McCarron.“I was delighted to get a win on Monday night. Cockhill caused us a lot of problems especially from set pieces. We knew going into the game it would be difficult and it proved to be.”Although he can be pleased with the efforts of his charges in the first weekend of games, Horgan knows there is still much work to do over the coming weeks and months.“There is still room for a lot of improvement,” commented Horgan. “There was nothing hugely impressive from the first two games although we showed a little bit of bottle that can be worked on. “There is still a lot to work on. The amount of free kicks we gave away, especially in the Cockhill game, and indeed defending them is something we can learn from. We still need to be sharper on the second ball but hopefully that will come as players gain more match sharpness.”Harps have a number of injury worries ahead of the trip to Dublin. Kevin McHugh and Gareth Harkin are both having trouble with their hamstring. Damien McNulty has a virus while Josh Mailey is struggling with a calf injury. All four sat on the League Cup win over Cockhill.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~TEAM NEWS Suspended: None.Doubtful: Kevin McHugh (hamstring), Damien McNulty (virus), Gareth Harkin (hamstring) and Josh Mailey (calf)Form Guide (last six league games)Finn Harps: L-L-L-W-D-D (5 pts)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Goalscorers 2014Ruairi Keating – 1 (in League Cup)Sean McCarron – 1 (in League Cup)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Results 2014 (Finn Harps scorers in brackets)10-Mar-2014 – LC – Finn Harps 3-2 Cockhill Celtic (McCarron, O’Donnell o.g., Keating)07-Mar-2014 – Lg – Finn Harps 0-0 Waterford UnitedLg = SSE Airtricity League, First Division.

Forward Ryan Smyth re-signed with the Edmonton Oilers, agreeing to a $7-million, two-year deal. The Boston Bruins agreed to terms on a one-year contract with goaltender Tim Thomas, a free agent who gives the team insurance while Andrew Raycroft holds out. Rodman not in court A judge in Breckenridge, Colo., signed an arrest warrant for former NBA star Dennis Rodman after he missed a court appearance on two alleged traffic violations. District Court Administrator Christine Yuhas said Rodman could be arrested if he returns to Colorado. “It was a misunderstanding,” said Rodman’s agent, Darren Prince. Rodman was charged with speeding and reckless driving after he was stopped July 26 in a $250,000 Lamborghini on a highway near the mountain town of Frisco, about 70 miles west of Denver. Officers allegedly clocked him going 98 mph. US ousted United States was eliminated from the Baseball World Cup with an 11-3 loss to defending champion Cuba in the quarterfinals in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Yuliesky Gourriel hit a two-run homer and drove in three runs for Cuba, which has won the tournament 11 of the 12 times it has been held. The United States fielded a team of professionals who were not on major-league rosters. In the semifinals, Cuba will play Panama, which beat Nicaragua, 2-1. In other quarterfinals, South Korea defeated Japan, 5-1, and the Netherlands routed Puerto Rico, 10-0. Crew swap Team rebuilding already is beginning for three NASCAR teams that missed out on this year’s Chase for the Nextel Cup, with two reuniting old teammates in an effort to regain the winning magic. Dale Earnhardt Inc. announced that Tony Eury Jr. will take over immediately as crew chief for his cousin, Dale Earnhardt Jr., putting back together a pair that raced together until this year. “This gives them a chance to start working on their chemistry,” said Richie Gilmore, vice president of Dale Earnhardt Inc. A struggling Petty Enterprises said it has hired one of its former crew chiefs, Robbie Loomis, who has been with Jeff Gordon since 2000, to be executive vice president of race operations beginning next year. “I’m sad to see Robbie leave,” said Gordon. “We made a great team and had more wins ahead of us, but the Pettys presented him with a fantastic opportunity. For him, it was time for a change and I’m happy he’s found the right fit.” The relatively unknown Steve Letarte, who will take over as Gordon’s crew chief this weekend at New Hampshire, is the only major player involved in Wednesday’s changes who isn’t returning to familiar territory. “I’ve worked with Steve for more than 10 years and we already communicate extremely well, both on and off the track,” Gordon said. “The team has a ton of confidence in his abilities, so we’re looking forward to the last 10 races of 2005 and getting an early jump on next year.” MLS career scoring leader Jason Kreis of Real Salt Lake was placed on the injured list with a torn ligament in his left knee and will miss the rest of the season. Kreis, the only player to score 100 goals in the league, said he felt it was more important to be healthy for 2006 than finish out Real’s first MLS season. Also in MLS, the Kansas City Wizards signed Finnish striker Antti Sumiala and waived midfielder Khari Stephenson. Boston Celtics guard Tony Allen had a small piece of cartilage removed from his right knee, and it’s not known whether he’ll return in time for the season opener Nov. 2. The financially troubled Hula Bowl is returning to Honolulu for its 60th game after spending eight years on Maui.

In addition, Francis was a three-time winner of the Lady ng Trophy, awarded to the player exhibiting sportsmanship and gentlemanly play combined with playing ability. True to his low-key manner, he announced his retirement through a news release posted on the NHL Players’ Association Web site Wednesday morning. “His announcement was in a way like his career very professional,” said Jim Rutherford, Carolina’s president and general manager. “He went about his business quietly and he’s one of the all-time great players to play the game.” Francis said the labor dispute between the league and players’ association that wiped out the 2004-05 season was “pretty much the writing on the wall’ that his playing days were done. He joins other notable players such as Mark Messier, Scott Stevens and Al MacInnis who retired from the game this month. “Looking back overall, it was a long ride,” Francis said. “I certainly wasn’t expecting it to be that long, but I certainly enjoyed many aspects of it and look back with fond memories and absolutely no regrets. It was a great part of my life.” “I think you always hope you can play forever, but you always realize that time will come,” Francis said of retirement. “I was fortunate I was able to make a decision, move on and do it comfortably.” Francis, 42, played for Hartford, Pittsburgh, Carolina and Toronto, and leaves the game with a resume few can rival. He is second to Wayne Gretzky with 1,249 assists, and ranks among the league’s all-time leaders with 1,731 games (third), 549 goals (19th) and 1,798 points (fourth). Ron Francis wasn’t going to play forever. It just seemed that way.
