Kanuku Tours on Friday launched a Sport Fishing vessel where Minister of Telecommunications and Tourism Catherine Hughes indicated her excitement and appreciation, having been included in the inauguration.Representative of Kanuku Tours Danny Kruger identified himself as “a South African bush pilot” who fell in love with Guyana. At the launch he said the entity is committed to unlocking more of Guyana’s exquisite sceneries and pristine rainforests to foreign and local tourists.Kruger highlighted that this vessel would serve as an opportunity for tourists to see more of what Guyana has to offer and also allow affordable methods of relaxation. He said the 32ft modernised vessel ‘Tri Deve’, was the first deep-sea fishing charter of its kind that would sail in the coastlines of Guyana.It was explained that the average trip for the ‘Tri Deve’ would take 6-10 hours traveling up and down the coast of Guyana from the mouth of the majestic Essequibo River to the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean.Kruger indicated that species that would be targeted during any fishing venture on this vessel would be snooks, tarpon, bull sharks, and others. He also highlighted that clients would be expected to follow the rules of ‘catch and release’ strictly “in order to preserve the species for future generations.”Additionally it was highlighted that during the Jubilee celebrations, Kanuku Tours will be offering two 3-day safaris called ‘Challenge Guyana’ which would allow persons to tour the jungle through the Kanuku Mountain Range.Meanwhile, Telecommunications and Tourism Minister Catherine Hughes offered congratulations to Kanukup Tours for following through on the promise they made in relation to this launch.“It is accredit to you that you were not put off by the several hurdles I know you may have encountered along the way.’’She highlighted that government is in the process of examining all of the procedures to ensure they are making things easier for new businesses, especially those locally, to be able to invest in Guyana.The minister described this event as ‘unique’ and ‘interesting’ saying “as you know, Guyana has committed to pushing Tourism as a new area of investment and a new key industry that we want to build our economy on.’’Minister Hughes indicated that through talk of promoting Tourism, they are constantly looking for new products, such as Kanuku Tours is offering to several tour operators.She highlighted that sport fishing was recognised as an ideal product to offer, due to the high demand for it in the Tourism market and was glad to hear that the ‘catch and release’ rules will be adhered to. She added that Government is working closely with NGOs to ensure that the required legislation is present to allow responsible use of Guyana’s fishes.

Alisson Becker is expected to help Liverpool provide a title challenge © AFP / MANAN VATSYAYANAIn their quest to end a 29-year wait to win the title, Liverpool weren’t just the biggest spenders, but got their business done early and improved the key areas of Jurgen Klopp’s squad that needed strengthening.Two calamitous errors from Loris Karius in losing the Champions League final to Real Madrid in May made it clear an upgrade was needed in goal and 72.5 million euros ($84 million, £65.2 million) were splashed on Alisson Becker from Roma in a short-lived world-record fee for a goalkeeper.Fabinho and Naby Keita will add extra dynamism and depth to the midfield, while Xherdan Shaqiri offers better back-up to the prolific front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.Even more importantly, Salah and Firmino also signed extended contracts rather than being lured away as Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho have been in recent seasons.WolvesJoao Moutinho brings international experience to Wolves’ midfield © AFP / MIGUEL RIOPAWolves’ connections to Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes were a source of complaint for their competitors as they romped to the Championship title last season.And the Midlands club appear to have higher ambitions than merely staying up after signing another two high-profile Mendes clients in Euro 2016 winners Rui Patricio and Joao Moutinho.A club-record fee of £20 million was also splashed on powerful Spanish winger Adama Traore and versatile Belgian international Leander Dendoncker was snapped up from Anderlecht.FulhamSerious business: Jean Michael Seri was once a target for Barcelona but has joined Fulham © AFP / BERTRAND LANGLOISAnother promoted side Fulham have made a mockery of the suggestion it is harder for teams going up via the playoffs to get deals in place as the other 19 Premier League teams have a two-week head start in the market.Not only have Fulham seen off interest from Spurs in England under-21 international Ryan Sessegnon, but have spent over £70 million on some stellar signings.Jean Michael Seri was a transfer target for Barcelona just 12 months ago, but will now be lining up at Craven Cottage rather than the Camp Nou along with former Nice team-mate Maxime Le Marchand, German World Cup winner Andre Schurrle and Alfie Mawson, who earned an England call-up earlier in the year.Fulham’s promotion was in large part thanks to Aleksandr Mitrovic’s 12 goals and his loan move from Newcastle was also made permanent for a reported £27 million.– Losers –The Premier LeagueThe decision to bring the transfer deadline forward to before the start of the season for the first time in England was designed to alleviate disruption.Last season Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and Virgil van Dijk were among those to miss the start of the campaign due to transfer speculation.Yet, a shortened window allied to the tight turnaround from the final stages of the World Cup just four weeks ago, left English clubs in a rush against time to get deals done and facing inflated fees when buying from Europe’s other top leagues, where the window doesn’t close till later this month.NewcastleTrouble ahead? Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez has concerns after another frugal window for the Magpies © AFP / Ian KINGTONAt a time of the season when all football fans dare to dream, there has again been little to set pulses racing in Newcastle as owner Mike Ashley refuses to join in the Premier League arms race, much to the chagrin of manager Rafael Benitez.Newcastle have again made a profit from player trading thanks to the sales of Mitrovic and Mikel Merino, with Benitez expressing his concern for the Magpies’ prospects this season after a 4-0 friendly thrashing by Braga earlier this month.Jose MourinhoMourinho has spent much of pre-season complaining about Manchester United’s lack of new signings © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKThe Manchester United manager consistently cried foul on the club’s pre-season tour of the United States about the state of his squad to try and provoke a reaction from the United hierarchy.Instead, Mourinho was left empty-handed from the final days of the window despite warning that the Red Devils face a difficult season by not delivering his targets in the transfer market.0Shares0000(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today)

“I would like to apologise to all the Juventus fans for my wrong reaction during today’s game,” wrote Costa on Instagram.“I also apologise to my teammates, who are always by my side, in good and bad times. It was ugly, I am aware of that and I apologise to everyone for that.“I want to make clear that this isolated conduct has nothing to do with what I’ve shown throughout my career.”Costa now faces an extended ban with coach Massimiliano Allegri annoyed with the forward for “rising to provocation”.“Maybe he was irritated at a foul before, but it doesn’t matter, because these things should absolutely not happen. The one thing we must avoid is rising to provocation,” said Allegri.Ronaldo flicked in the first goal from close range in the 50th minute amid a scramble in front of goal, to euphoria at the Allianz Stadium, and grabbed a second 15 minutes later following a counter-attack involving Costa and Germany midfielder Emre Can.Senegalese striker Khouma Babacar headed in a late goal for Sassuolo who fell to their first defeat of the season.Just after Costa was given a yellow card for locking horns with Di Francesco, the two bickering players came together again and Costa elbowed his rival and than spat at Di Francesco’s face.The incident was referred to VAR and Costa was sent off by the referee.Cristiano Ronaldo broke his scoring duck with a double for Juventus against Sassuolo. © AFP / Marco BERTORELLO“We could have scored a third goal, but instead we started to play as individuals, we tried to dribble past everyone, this wound up the opposition, who then reacted badly and then you get situations like Douglas Costa,” said Allegri.Allegri congratulated Ronaldo for breaking his duck before their trip to Spain to play Valencia in the Champions League next Wednesday.“You just had to see the first three games and how close Ronaldo went to scoring,” he said.“I think he rushed a couple of chances today –- it looked like he was absolutely desperate to score.“Football has a way of evening things out and that was the story of the first goal, with the ball bouncing off the post and sitting up for him. The second goal was brilliant. I’m happy for him.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000“Over the top reaction” – Brazilian Douglas Costa apologises for spitting at Federico Di Francesco. © AFP / Marco BERTORELLOMILAN, Italy, Sep 16 – Juventus forward Douglas Costa has apologised after being sent off for spitting in the face of Sassuolo’s Federico Di Francesco in a 2-1 Serie A win in Turin on Sunday.Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goals for Juventus but the champions’ fourth win in as many games this season was overshadowed by Brazilian Costa’s late red card for spitting at Di Francesco — the 24-year-old son of Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco.

UPDATED: The Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay campaign is calling for a massive show of defiance against the Household and Septic Tank Charges tomorrow when a protest march will take place in Letterkenny.The march will begin from the Tesco roundabout at 3pm and will proceed to the Market Square where a number of speakers will address the crowd.The demonstration takes place as The Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay campaign welcomed the latest low payment figures for the Household Charge. At the close of business yesterday only 313,341 households have registered. Francis Mc Cafferty of the campaign steering committee said: “Despite all the threats and the stepping up of the government’s media campaign, nearly 1.5 million households still have not registered.“We are calling on the public in Donegal to come out in force and march in Letterkenny tomorrow to help us deliver a final a nail in the coffin to the hated Household tax.”Micheal Mc Giolla Easbuig of the campaign steering committee said “This demonstration gives people the chance to send a strong message to the government that we will not be bullied or intimidated into paying.The government are showing signs of increasing desperation when they look at the very low levels of payment of the Household Tax. With a little more than a week to go there are still more than 1.4 million households who have not registered.” “It is clear the government will wake up to a huge headache after March 31st when hundreds of thousands of people across the country have refused to foot the bill for the bondholders. Minister Hogan’s threats to ‘track down’ non-payers will be hollow in the face of determined opposition from the strong and united campaign all across the country.”Meanwhile Thomas Pringle TD has said he will join the demonstration and urged the public to do the same. “The weapon the government is relying on is fear and we can now see many people are no longer afraid. I hope that those who are opposed to the charges will come out in big numbers on Saturday and let their voices be heard.”Micheal Mc Giolla Easbuig said that the campaign had now built up an unstoppable momentum. “We are seeing many people who have not been involved in any form of protest before telling us they will come on the march. The momentum is now with the boycott campaign and we are confident that we are winning.”LEAVE YOUR COMMENT BELOW© 2012 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailyHOUSEHOLD TAX: CAN’T PAY CAMPAIGNERS IN MARCH CALL was last modified: March 23rd, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:’MASSIVE SHOW OF DEFIANCE’ – CAN’T PAY CAMPAIGNERS IN MARCH CALLHOUSEHOLD TAX: CAN’T PAY CAMPAIGNERS IN MARCH CALLtomas pringle td

Dead heading roses the right way.Roses are a real sign of summer across Donegal, and in a recent survey by Bord Bia these were chosen as Irelands favourite flower (followed by Lavender, Daffodils and Tulips). Many of us will have some form of rose growing in the garden, whether it’s a bush, a rambler or a small patio variety in the pot, and these may range from knock-your-socks off scented to half-dead black-spot coated miserable excuses for plants. Well this week I hope to put you on the right path to success with your roses..by Horticulturalist Gareth Austin Gareth AustinKey Area 1- PositioningRoses love sunshine. The more sunshine a rose gets the better the perfume. The ingredients that cause the scent are found in the leaves of the plants, the chloroplasts. They are surrounded with glucose which causes them to create the scentless glucosides which are stored or carried to the petals. The scent becomes noticeable if the glucoside is hydrolyzed by an enzyme. This production of scent is a very complex process, which is influenced by many external factors. An important one is the availability of moisture. When the soil is moist, the roses smell their sweetest because the scent ingredient in the chloroplast increases proportionately and is conveyed to the petals in larger quantities. Also roses love fresh air, they like having fresh air blowing around their leaves, taking with it stagnant diseased air and bringing beneficial insects to the party. So a nice bright, open location is best.Key Area 2- SoilRoses love a well worked, organic matter rich soil. Or to put simply, they love growing in a soil which is full of well-rotted compost or manure and they love this to be regularly added to. So before you plant roses work in at least 2 big shovelfuls of well-rotted manure (either bagged from a garden centre, or sourced from a horse stable, or cattle shed or the like – we’ll cover this in more detail later) and then in early Spring each year apply a thick mulch of more well-rotted manure (3-5”) around the base of each plant. Don’t dig this in, just layer it on the soil and let the worms and living organisms in the soil work it in. By regularly mulching the roses this will not only feed the plants, but will also supress weeds, improve soil structure and retain moisture in the soil. All this not only helps the formation of scent, but also keeps the plants healthy and in turn reduces pests and disease occurrence. Black-spot, mildew (mildew on roses reduces perfume production) and other diseases which afflict roses can overwinter in the soil in fallen leaves, by mulching you cover over these disease spores, but also create a healthy population of pathogen suppressing bacteria in the soil. Key Area 3 – FeedingAll this mulching supplies a whole heap of invaluable trace elements aswell as the major nutrients needed for growth, primarily Potassium. This nutrient, which we chatted about the other week, is important for not only the formation of flowers but also in disease resistance in plants. Roses will also benefit from a handful of fertiliser such as Fish, Blood & Bone Meal around St Patricks Weekend and again in mid Summer. Too much feeding and you will get soft growth which is prone to greenfly and disease attack, so try to avoid highly soluble fertilisers and/or tomato food on your roses. The few handfuls and the manure will provide all the nutrition your plants need.Key Area 4 – DeadheadingWe all wish to have roses which produce a succession of flowers, ones which appear month after month in the summer. To do this you have to dead-head as and when the flowers start to collapse. Dead heading roses is a joyful job in the garden, cutting of the flowers just as they fade to a healthy set of leaves, not only keeps the plants tidy looking but encourages the plants to produce more flowers, instead of producing unwanted seed heads. Try to dead head regularly and remove the flowers before they start to collapse and scatter petals everywhere.Key area 5 – PruningI’m a no fuss pruning kind of guy. On my own roses I practice the no nonsense chop. All I do is cut the roses down to half their size in early Winter. This pruning helps to reduce wind-rock caused by strong winter winds, however the date you do this can be influenced by the shelter in your site and of course how late the plants flower upto, but try to have it done by early December. Around St Patricks weekend I then chop them down by another half. I don’t do any angle cuts above nodes, no shortening back weaker stems etc etc…just no nonsense chop, and it works great for me. I learned this from the professional rose growers, they’re pruning many thousands of roses and don’t have the time nor need to meticulously prune every rose plant, indeed I’ve even pruned bedding roses with a lawnmower in high setting with good results. Now this is obviously for bedding roses, for climbing roses we’ll cover them in future weeks. The important thing is that you don’t cut the roses back into ‘old wood’, you must keep your cuts in the fresher green stems, leaving at least 2 nodes on the stems.Key Area 6 – Pests and Disease Feeding and soil health, these will be your key weapon in keeping your roses in tip-top shape. Soil that’s not worth jack will give you roses which are mince. Feed your soil, and keep it healthy and you’ll have better plants with better immune systems. The most common disease to affect your roses will be Rose Black Spot, a pathogenic disease spread by rain, wind blown leaves and dirty garden tools. Any temps about 15C are idea for the fungus to spore and spread. A fresh mulch of well rotted manure is helpful to combat the build up of disease on the leaf litter layer, the selection of disease resistant varieties, the cleanliness of your pruners are all essential components in a disease reduction system, add in a fortnightly application of a copper based fungicide and you’ll have the blackspot kicked into touch. Blackspot isn’t spread miles in the wind, if you get rid of it from your garden you’re highly unlikely to have your roses infected by spores carried on the wind from your neighbours, reinfection generally comes from re-introduction – in the form of new bought in plants, infected tools or clothing. So being hard on it for a year or two can lead to it general being a thing of the past in your garden. For pests try to encourage beneficial insects around your roses, so plant some marigolds or some calendula in through your roses, or use a garlic spray to control the aphids, see your previous feature on Home Made Potions.Key Area 7- Variety SelectionAs mentioned about variety selection is not only vital for pest and disease resistance but of course for scent, colour and abundance of blooms. Plant breeders have went to town on roses, you can get nearly every colour under the sun, and these can be found on the Hybrid T, Floribunda, Patio and climbing roses. Perfume is probably the most desirable trait folks look for, however the flowers that last the longest don’t tend to be too scented as the scent is linked to the flowers ripening – if you remove the scent gene the flowers last longer, so it’s a see-saw of trying to get what you desire in your roses. All the good garden centres will have a great selection of roses from Jan-May for immediate planting, and of course there are lots of mail-order businesses, such as the world famous Austin Roses, Dickson Roses and the likes offering countless varieties, so choose wisely and you could reduce a lot of the maintenance moving forward with just choosing the right varieties.As you can see it’s all about the soil with roses, so bad news if you’ve roses planted through a gravel mulch. In my experience these roses never reach their full potential, as the gravel and membrane prevent you from adding fertility to the soil. If your roses are in this situation and doing poorly, remove the gravel and the membrane, apply some Fertiliser and mulch and you’ll be delighted with the response.When planting new roses always use the beneficial Mycorrhizal Fungii, this helps the new roses to produce a massive secondary root system, which in turn allows them to bring back more water and nutrients to the mother ship (keeping them pest and disease free), but the use of this will also overcome any rose replant problems, which is a major issue if you replanting a rose garden. The mycorrhizal fungii is something we discussed in a previous feature on Tree Planting. Its great, it works and you should use it when your planting/sowing anything! We mentioned earlier about using manures. This is something which I was asked about on numerous occasions at the Kees Garden Centre Plant Fair last weekend. All types of manures are beneficial for plants, but some are richer in nutrients than others. The key part is that the manure is at least 6 months old. If the manure has been covered and stockpiled this composting process will kill of weed seeds and will create a more stable source of nutrients for the soil.Thanks to everyone who came along to Kees Garden Centre Plant Fair last weekend, myself and garden centre manager David Perry had a great time and I was delighted that there were so many folks making reference to this Donegal Daily & Derry Daily piece! I’m looking forward to meeting more at the next Oakfield Park garden tour which is a Summer Solstice special on the 20th of June, see Oakfield Park on Facebook for more.
