first_imgMid-year financial reportBY SAMUEL SUKHNANDANEven with increased production in the key traditional sectors, data compiled in the recent mid-year Finance Ministry Report has clearly showed that the economy is eroding at a fast rate.This is according to former Government Minister, Irfaan Ali, who said it thereforeOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has been very critical of the APNU/AFC Government’s economic performance over the past two yearsmeans that the local Guyanese economy could experience some challenges going forward.Ali pointed out that as foreign exchange tanked, imports will become relatively expensive. “Overall, imported goods would become relatively expensive, hence stoking inflation in the process,” he contended.Ali noted that net foreign reserve plummeted from US$633 million in June 2016 to US$574 million in mid-2017; the lowest ever recorded in over seven years.“In other words, the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Government destroyed in two years what the PPP/C [People’s Progressive Party] took to amass in 7 years. Even more worrisome, external debt increased by US$53 million to US$1,200 million,” he added.The Opposition Member of Parliament said it is also worthwhile to mention that net foreign revenue to external debt ratio had increased from 172 per cent in mid-2016Former Minister and PPP/C Member of Parliament, Irfaan Ali thinks the economy is eroding at a fast rateto 207 per cent in mid-2017.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo had also bashed the APNU/AFC coalition Government, saying that it remains clueless and hapless, even as the country’s economy continues on a downward spiral.The former President had also called out the Government for refusing to concede to advice and recommendations, which could in effect help to put the country back on the road to recovery.He accused the Administration of taking a laid back approach, while Guyanese continue to feel the brunt of a dilapidated economical structure.Under the PPP/C Administration, Guyana had the fastest growing economy in the region. And from 2006 to 2014, Guyana’s economy experienced continuous, positive growth. This was the longest period of uninterrupted growth in the history of Guyana. The average growth rate was 4.5 per cent per annum.In 2014, the last full year of the PPP/C in office, Guyana’s GDP was US$3.1 billion. That was up from US$1.4 billion in 2006, an increase of 121.4 per cent. The country’s Gross International Reserve held at the Bank of Guyana at the end of 2014 was US$665.6 million, which was equivalent to 3.6 months of imports. It was up from US$251.4 million in 2005, an increase of 164.76 per cent.The PPP/C administration had drastically reduced the huge debt it had inherited from a previous PNC regime. And the PPP/C reduced the external debt to just 39.5% of GDP. That was also a reduction from 2006 when the debt to GDP was 71.8 percent. This has been described as a good demonstration of the prudent financial management by the PPP/C and the dynamic growth of the economy.In this year’s mid-year report, it was stated that the overall balance of payment recorded a deficit of US$46 million during the first half of 2017. According to the report, key traditional products such as sugar, timber, rice and even gold have all recorded a decline in export earnings from US$518.7 million in mid-2017 to US$503.5 million in 2016 during similar period.At the end of the reporting period, exports stood at US$685.1 million and imports at US$808.9 million. To offset this enormous deficit, Government turned their attention to the Bank of Guyana net foreign assets, where US$18.3 million was expended.last_img read more

first_imgQPRDefender Max Ehmer has extended his loan at Gillingham until 7 February. The 22-year-old first joined the League One club towards the end of November and has featured six times.FA CupChelsea could face London rivals Millwall for the first time since 1995, in the fourth round of the FA Cup. The Blues were drawn at home to the winners of the replay between the Lions and League One side Bradford. Fulham, if they can overcome Wolves, will travel to Gus Poyet’s Sunderland. Ties will be played on the weekend of 24 and 25 January.FulhamThe club have confirmed that their FA Cup replay at Wolves will be played on Tuesday 13 January, with a 7.45pm kick-off, subject to any television scheduling.BrentfordThe Bees will be hosting open trials at their Jersey Road training ground in May, with a professional contract up for grabs. Players born between 31 May 1994 and 30 May 1999 are eligible, with those in the 16-18 age range attending on Saturday 30 May, and 19- to 21-year-olds on Sunday 31 May. The best will be selected to play in a match against Brentford’s academy squad.Jack WarburtonThe son of Brentford manager Mark has joined the club’s development squad until the end of the season. The 21-year-old midfielder came through the youth ranks at Watford before moving to Leicester City at the age of 17. After turning professional, he later moved to Canada, winning player of the year at fourth-tier side Kitchener-Waterloo United in 2013, before coming back to the UK. He played two Under-21 games as part of a trial with the Bees and will now be part of Lee Carsley’s second string until June.Chelsea LadiesChelsea Ladies have signed highly-rated Sweden international Marija Banušić, 19, from Kristianstads. The forward, who made her debut for her country in November, is regarded as one of the most exciting young talents in Europe and will link up with the Blues squad later this month for pre-season training. She is the fifth signing of the winter, after Gemma Davison, Millie Bright, Niamh Fahey and fellow Swedish international Hedvig Lindahl. However, Yuki Ogimi and Rachel Williams have left the club, to join VfL Wolfsburg and Notts County respectively.Sam RobsonThe Middlesex opener scored 109 on the first day of England Lions’ opening match of their tour of South Africa. Robson struck 12 fours and a six before retiring as the Lions made 361-4 against a Gauteng Invitation XI in Soweto.MiddlesexTim Murtagh, Paul Stirling and Andy Balbirnie have all been named in Ireland’s squad for this year’s Cricket World Cup. Stirling, 24, played in all six of Ireland’s matches at the 2007 tournament, scoring a century against the Netherlands and making 32 in their shock win over England, but Balbirnie, 24, and London-born Murtagh, 33, will be at their first World Cup.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgDiscovery Bar: Users move a slider across a discovery/recommendation bar to listen to similar artists. The top of the slider offers music from just your searched artist, and the other end of the spectrum offers all new recommendations.Voting and Radio: Users can also vote music up and down in a Pandora-like fashion and listen to music in “radio”-mode (continuous play), or simply listen to their playlists.Reviews: Users can also search for lyrics and info through the player, and MOG will push them back to the MOG blog network. From here you can rate songs with the song pre-linked in your posts, and add your favorite concert memory, videos and images. Review pages also show the top listeners of a particular artist ,and like other music fan services, you can scroll through artist bios, news, photos, songs, albums and reviews. Users can also play music through the blogging network if they choose to discover music via the reviews.Playlists: Users can add any searchable track to their personal library or to a custom playlist. You can also search for an artist and add entire albums or artist collections as one big playlist. In addition to being able to listen to your own playlists, you can also listen to featured community playlists and playlists created by artists. For instance, if you’re in the mood for an artist-curated experience, TV on the Radio gives you a “Radio on the Internet” playlist while DJ Shadow offers his “Hyphy” mix. You can also share your own playlist with others by making it public. Users upload a photo that represents their mix, and add tracks either through the website or via the player. dana oshiro Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Social: Similar to Facebook, user activity is shown in a feed and friends can watch each other depending on user privacy settings.

Users can also push their playlist choices and blog entries out to Facebook and Twitter.To check out the service for yourself register for it at mog.com. Tags:#start#startups Related Posts MOG‘s $5 all-you-can-eat streaming music subscription service has finally launched. Although we interviewed CEO David Hyman in mid October, the music industry has changed considerably in the last two months. Imeem sold to MySpace for a song, and competitor Spotify is rumored to be delaying a United States launch as it refuses to enter North America with a paid-only version. We spoke to MOG CEO David Hyman to find out his thoughts on the industry and why his service is different from his competitors.How has Spotify’s delay and Imeem’s acquisition affected your service? We’ve just been watching from the sidelines waiting for the stars to align to launch a service that’s sustainable. Anyone in ad-supported music has had a hard time, including free radio. The freemium services have to offer their subscriptions at at least $15 per month to offset the cost of their free service. We’re the first personal radio service where you can play radio, jump to an album on demand and offer it all online without client installation. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… In the past MOG allowed bloggers to link to music through the blogging network, and you weren’t really responsible for that. Now you’re taking a more active role. Do you want to comment on that? There’s two types of bloggers on our network, there are those that use MOG.com as a platform and take advantage of our tools and there are the 3rd party bloggers (1,000 top music bloggers) that are on our network but use their own tools. Platform bloggers will see music playlists seamlessly integrate through the MOG service – you’ll notice that whenever you go to review a song, it’s already pre-embedded in the post. Whereas 3rd party bloggers will get the VIP service for free and be able to use embedding tools to become part of our affiliate program.You’ve got some great discovery tools. Between all your discovery features and a mobile app that caches playlists on the horizon, why would anyone want to buy a track through your site? Are downloads really necessary anymore? Well, it’s important to download a song if you’re listening on a device that can’t sync. But honestly, we’re betting that consumption in the cloud is the future. One problem subscription music services have faced is lack of portability. Today, with the power of smart phones, playlist caching and 3G there’s a lot more you can do.Your mobile app is supposed to offer offline caching of playlists. When will that appear on the scene? You’ll see that in the first three months of 2010.While you’ve remarked that freemium models are not sustainable, a few of your competitors have scratched their heads on how you’d make a $5-per-month service sustainable with this mobile component. Can you comment? Our mobile service will be at a slightly higher rate – under $15 but more than $5. I wish I could charge $5 for everything but the labels charge me more than that.We noticed you’re featuring video content on the blogs. Spotify’s Daniel Ek once suggested that streaming media services can stream anything, including video. Have you got any plans to incorporate video into the service? You’ll likely see some video content featured next year, but the amount of video we have compared to music files in tiny. We’ve only got about 1 or 2 videos per album and that’s for the really popular artists.And finally, what are your favorite features in the site? I’m lazy. I just like that I can type anything I want to listen to into the search bar and stream radio. I like to listen to Miles Davis radio or Tom Waits radio and I don’t even move the discovery slider over.MOG All Access Features While MOG offers your basic web service with a pop-out player and the ability to save to your streaming library or playlists, it also offers a number of unique features: 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
