This time it is her own appointed Senator, DNA leader Branville McCartney, a fellow FNM defector who talks tough to Butler Turner and speaks frankly to the Nassau Guardian in a one on one. Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting The confusion has elicited this from Minister Glennis Hanna Martin in the House of Assembly this week, “I’m one of those people I don’t explain much in him, and I sat and, you in Long Island, take a break man, you’ve got your hands full, don’t get in my business, don’t get in my business, you’ve got your hands full, sort out your business man, you’ve got a complicated life right now.” McCartney in reference to some comments made by Butler Turner that she was thrown under the bus by him, said that he reached out to her about the statement made in the House of Assembly. It appears to be some mix up over what he said and then what she said, after he reportedly said whatever it is that he said… not the kind of interactions Bahamians need to see so close to a General Election. Earlier this week it was reported that Neko Grant and Dr. Andre Rollins are both at odds with Loretta Butler Turner, who formed a political coup, many call it, to have Hubert Minnis removed as Opposition Leader of Business in the House of Assembly; it worked. Butler-Turner has since December 11, 2016 been Opposition Leader in the House. #MagneticMediaNews We pulled that audio (quote) from a 20-second video of Hanna Martin which is in wide social media circulation, where the Minister appears to be shutting down comments from across the aisle from the Long Island Member.

With the IPL coming to a close, all the focus will now shift to the World Cup. As such, there are growing concerns with the involvement of overseas coaches as it could lead to plenty of know-how about several of the marquee Indian players.For instance, Ricky Ponting, who is the coach of the Delhi Capitals, will also be the assistant coach for Australia and hence, there are concerns over him nullifying the Shikhar Dhawan impact.”Imagine the extent to which they understand Dhawan the cricket. What clicks for him… what doesn’t… It’s clearly unhealthy. Rishabh, Prithvi, Shreyas – see the amount of analysis they’re being able to gather,” Times of India quoted Team India’s take on the matter.South Africa’s Chennai-based analyst Prasanna Agoram is with KXIP KL Rahul, Shikhar DhawanReutersAlso, Cricket South Africa’s Chennai-based analyst Prasanna Agoram, who has been with the South African team for a very long time is working with the Kings XI Punjab and hence, will know all about KL Rahul and Mohammed Shami, two of India’s critical players in the World Cup.”The amount of work Prasanna has put in with the South African national team is tremendous. We got to know about it first hand when we visited South Africa last year. Now, this guy gets to spend two months right here in the Indian domestic circuit just weeks before he’ll accompany South Africa to the World Cup. This just doesn’t sound correct,” some members of the Indian cricket team had to say.As per a TOI report, there are concerns with the involvement of overseas coaches and analysts with the Indian team, that too so close to a World event where strategies and tactics will be very crucial. It adds that although the IPL is a free market, a line has to be drawn. Former Australia skipper Ricky PontingReutersAlso, it states that a number of junior cricketers have expressed surprise over the fact that while Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, and VVS Laxman have been slapped with a conflict of interest notice, the likes of Ricky Ponting, who are directly involved with the Australian national team continue to get a free hand.”If players like Dravid, Tendulkar, Ganguly and Laxman are not associated with IPL, whose loss is it? Look at Pravin Amre. He’s one of India’s finest batting coaches. Just because he wants to keep his IPL job, he can’t work with any other state team or NCA. But Tom Moody can coach Sunrisers and head the Caribbean Premier League too,” the players added.
Rohingya Muslim refugees wait to be escorted by Bangladeshi coast guards after crossing the border from Myanmar at the Bangladeshi shores of the Naf river in Teknaf on 5 October, 2017. Photo: AFPBangladesh on Thursday announced it would build one of the world’s biggest refugee camps to house all the 800,000-plus Rohingya Muslims who have sought asylum from persecution in Myanmar.The arrival of more than half a million Rohingya Muslims from Buddhist-dominated Myanmar since 25 August has put an immense strain on camps in Bangladesh where there are growing fears of a disease epidemic.A Bangladesh minister gave details of the mega camp as Myanmar’s army blamed Rohingya militants for setting fire to houses in troubled Rakhine state in recent days to intensify the exodus of the Muslim minority across the border.Hard-pressed Bangladesh authorities plan to expand a refugee camp at Kutupalong near the border town of Cox’s Bazar to accommodate all the Rohingya.Two thousand acres (790 hectares) of land next to the existing Kutupalong camp were set aside last month for the new Rohingya arrivals. But as the number of newcomers has exceeded 500,000 — adding to 300,000 already in Bangladesh — another 1,000 acres has been set aside for the new camp.Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya, minister for disaster management and relief, said all the Rohingya would eventually be moved from 23 camps along the border and other makeshift camps around Cox’s Bazar to the new zone.”All of those who are living in scattered places… would be brought into one place. That’s why more land is needed. Slowly all of them will come,” the minister told AFP, adding families were already moving to the new site known as the Kutupalong Extension.The minister said two of the existing settlements have already been shut down.This week Bangladesh reported 4,000-5,000 Rohingya were crossing the border daily after a brief lull in arrivals, with 10,000 more waiting at the frontier.- ‘Extraordinary generosity’ -The United Nations has praised Bangladesh’s “extraordinary spirit of generosity” in opening up its borders.But UNICEF chief Anthony Lake and UN emergency relief coordinator Mark Lowcock said in an appeal for $430 million to provide aid that “the needs (of the Rohingya) are growing at a faster pace than our ability to meet them”.”The human tragedy unfolding in southern Bangladesh is staggering in its scale, complexity and rapidity,” they said in a statement calling the Rohingya crisis “the world’s fastest developing refugee emergency”.Rohingya who have made it to Bangladesh allege the spurt in arrivals follows a new campaign of intimidation by Myanmar’s army in parts of Rakhine which were still home to Muslim communities.But the office of Myanmar army chief Min Aung Hlaing said blazes at seven houses in a Rohingya village in Buthidaung township early Wednesday were started by one “Einu”, an alleged militant from the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA).”ARSA extremist terrorist” Einu had been “urging people to run” across the border to Bangladesh, said the statement published on the office’s Facebook page.The refugee crisis erupted after ARSA raids on Myanmar police posts on August 25 prompted a brutal military backlash.The United Nations has said the Myanmar army campaign could be “ethnic cleansing” while military leaders have blamed the unrest on Rohingya.While the worst of the violence appears to have abated, insecurity, food shortages and tensions with Buddhist neighbours are still driving thousands of Rohingya to make the arduous trek to Bangladesh.Bangladesh has made the journey even more difficult with a clampdown on boats running refugees across the Naf river that separates the two countries.Authorities have destroyed at least 30 wooden fishing vessels whose captains are accused of smuggling Rohingya and illegal drugs into the country, officials said Thursday.The boatmen were caught in possession of about 100,000 “yaba” pills, an illegal stimulant popular in Bangladesh, said a border guard official.
