Whither the “Good Life”?
The PNC-led APNU/AFC coalition Government is now well past the halfway point of its term of office, in which it promised to deliver “the good life” to the citizens of Guyana. Sadly, by its own measure, that promise has receded even further under this regime, which is characterised more than anything else by the disjoint between its rhetoric and its actions.The rhetoric for achieving the “good life” was captured in its “joint manifesto”, in which the goals were stated right up front. It began with the need for “healing and reconciliation”, and stated quite clearly this meant: “to acknowledge, embrace and celebrate our ethnic diversity”. It was an acceptance that the plural nature of our society, characterised by ethnic blocks, had led to challenges and ruptures that needed to be “healed and reconciled”. However, the Government’s PNC-dominated APNU block’s immediate miniaturising of its AFC partner — which had given it a tenuous claim to bridging the ethnic divide — dimmed hopes of that “healing and reconciliation”. The hard line against a rapprochement with the PPP effectively destroyed those hopes.The second goal was “good governance”. This did not so much focus on how the PNC-led APNU/AFC coalition would actually utilise the institutions of government, as increasing the space for citizens’ participation in governance. In other words, it did not equate “good governance” with “good government”. But even by its sophistry, it has failed. To slip into a 21st century law on “cybercrime” the 13th century criminal common law of sedition, which forbids any criticism of the Government that might precipitate “disaffection” towards it, certainly does not deliver the promised “increase in the civil liberties of our people”. The less said about “eliminating corruption and Government waste” the better.But it is the failure on its goal of “industrialisation and jobs” that the PNC-led APNU/AFC coalition has failed to deliver the good life. While most citizens might not — like the Marxists — scoff at “bourgeois rights” like “civil liberties”, they would overwhelmingly agree that for them, at a minimum, the good life is achieved through their own efforts, by having jobs. “Industrialisation” of our economy, which was founded to produce primary products during the colonial period, has been the mantra of every government since independence.The first PNC government, between 1964 and 1992, rejected the then dominant “industrialisation by invitation” model, seized control of the economy, and attempted to squeeze profits from the agricultural sector through levies and export controls, to achieve that goal via “import substitution”; but ended up destroying the primary-productive sector without any industrialisation. Its present incarnation is yet to even suggest an “industrialisation” policy, and has emphasised taxing businesses without offering them incentives for industrialising the economy. In the meantime, the primary producing areas have been squeezed through political vindictiveness trumping economic rationality: throwing 7700 sugar workers into the streets, and conceding the loss of the lucrative Venezuelan rice markets.In its articulation of the third goal of “Fair taxes”, the fundamental muddle of the PNC-led APNU/AFC coalition’s thinking is revealed, and it guarantees that any hoped-for ‘good life” is sure to recede farther with every passing day. The APNU/AFC promised the “fair taxes” would allow the pay checks of ordinary citizens to “go further” and allow “businesses to grow”. One would assume that this implied the Government would cut taxes significantly, but this was never done. Income taxes remain the same, while the 2% reduction of VAT is insignificant.Under the goal of “fair taxes”, the PNC-led APNU/AFC coalition also guaranteed a “safe and secure society” – which is certainly what citizens envisage as part of the “good life”. Did they mean they would spend the “fair taxes” to increase security? But why confine taxes to security? Is not all Government spending funded by the taxes on citizens and businesses? Even the loans borrowed by governments have to be eventually paid from taxes.But even security has not been bolstered. Whither the “good life”?
Jewish center declines bailout offer
Sunday’s decision now casts doubt on plans by the federation to rent most of its Bernard Milken Jewish Community Campus to the New Community Jewish High School of West Hills. “We felt this was a truly fair agreement,” said Deborah Dragon, spokeswoman for the Jewish Federation, which raises $50 million a year for local and world agencies. “We’re definitely disappointed. “It is the federation’s commitment to provide early childhood education and senior services at this site, or at other nearby locations.” With the Valley Cities JCC in Sherman Oaks scheduled to close this month, the New JCC at Milken could be the last surviving JCC for 250,000 San Fernando Valley-area Jews. The New JCC now draws many seniors for classes, card games and cultural and community events. It also serves 135 preschoolers, many who have working parents who depend on extended day-care hours. JCC leaders on Sunday appealed for broad community support. During a two-hour town meeting, members gave $18,000 to save their center. “The JCC should stay right where it is, in the same amount of space,” said Judith Goldsmith, 80, of West Hills, who joined the JCC in 1969 when it rented space from a nearby church. firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3730160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WEST HILLS – In a surprise decision Sunday, a popular Jewish community center declined a financial bailout in order to retain a majority of its campus. The New JCC at Milken board refused an offer from the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles that would have given it $350,000 in exchange for giving up its legal right as majority tenant. The decision was backed by a unanimous show of hands from nearly 500 JCC members, who favored raising their own money to save preschool and senior programs. “This is our property; we’re going to stand here and fight,” said Hal Sandler, president of the board, to a roomful of mostly seniors. “No one is going to throw us off our property. “We’ll be much better off if we’re here and in control of our own destiny.” The former West Valley JCC had once deeded its four-acre campus to the Jewish Federation in a trade for continued financial support. But after providing $6 million in subsidies since 2003, the Jewish Federation made a take-it-or leave it bailout offer to the indebted JCC, which would have had to give up space to make room for a growing Jewish high school. Last week, it looked like the JCC might accept the offer. But what especially galled JCC members was an unwillingness by the federation to guarantee equal space for current preschool programs, as well as sufficient space for other needs. Members were also livid over a recent federation decision to close their popular swimming pool – a major draw for members – and fill it for classroom space.

Ex-City star explains why Sane wouldn’t be missed and compares Sterling to Sanchez
Man United transfer news live: Haaland ‘wants a change’, two players off in January Getty Images – Getty One winger who is very much at the forefront of Guardiola’s plans is Raheem Sterling.While City have unbelievable depth out wide, the England international remains one of the first names on the team sheet.And Sinclair spots a similar trend between Sterling’s career and a young Alexis Sanchez.“Sanchez’s stats were very similar to his at a young age. They’ve got quite a similar physique: well-built, quite short, with a lot of power, skill and acceleration,” Sinclair added.“I feel like he’s replicating the scoring ratio that Sanchez had in his young career. ANDREW YATES/AFP/Getty Images Trevor Sinclair insists Leroy Sane would not be missed at Manchester City if he left for Bayern Munich.Bayern are desperate to sign the 23-year-old winger, who fell out of favour at the Etihad last season. 2 LATEST deals Matic one of two players for sale with ‘two Premier League clubs’ interested Liverpool update ‘Champions Wall’ after ending 2019 as European and world champions Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update Reports suggest City want a staggering £145m for Sane, with the Bundesliga champions confident they can secure a deal for the German.And former City winger Sinclair believes Sane has become surplus to requirements under Pep Guardiola.“The Leroy Sane rumours won’t go away and I don’t think it would be a big loss for the club if they did lose him,” Sinclair told talkSPORT.com.“I watched him the whole of last season and he didn’t look that interested from the start.“Everyone can have their opinion on him, but Pep and his coaching staff watch him every day in training. It’s not just about the performances, it’s about the attitude.” FAREWELL Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS Sane limped out of Sunday’s Community Shield victory over Liverpool The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star latest Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ Former Crystal Palace and West Brom manager Pardew takes over at Dutch strugglers TROPHY New job REVEALED Sinclair made 97 appearances for City 2 targets “It’s like fire and ice, when you’re younger, you’re a bit anxious in front of goal and you let the emotion get the better of you. When you get more experienced, it’s easier to calm yourself down and have great composure in front of goal.“When you hear people talk about him, even from his QPR days, it doesn’t matter how many mistakes he might make, he always works his socks off in training.
