La reprise économique est là malgré les séquelles des restrictions sanitaires, la chère inflation et le conflit russo-ukrainien, le territoire se remet même s’il n’est pas encore revenu au niveau de 2019, avant la survenue de la pandémie. 

Les touristes reviennent, les ménagent consomment, les entreprises investissent. La Guadeloupe se remet économiquement de la pandémie. Tous les voyants semblent certes au vert mais attention à l’illusion d’optique, selon l’Insee  (Institut national de la statistique et des études économiques) et l’Iedom (Institut d’émission des départements d’Outre-mer), cette encourageante embellie reste à prendre avec des pincettes.

 Parmi les départements français d’Amérique, la Guadeloupe connaît la…

N??ez scores again as Liverpool beat West Ham 1-0 in EPL Loop Jamaica

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Darwin N??ez is finally finding his scoring touch in his first season at Liverpool — just in time for the World Cup, too.

With his first-half goal in a 1-0 win over West Ham in the English Premier League (EPL) on Wednesday, the Uruguay striker has now netted in three of his last four games for his best scoring run since joining Liverpool from Benfica.

N??ez is showing he has the ability to score different types of goals, his latest seeing him get in between defenders to rise and glance home a fine header from a left-wing cross by Kostas Tsimikas in the 22nd minute.

N??ez also struck the post with a dipping shot in the first half as Liverpool returned to Anfield and recorded another 1-0 win — three days after beating Manchester City by the same score on a much more intense occasion.

West Ham’s best chance for an equalizer came after Liverpool defender Joe Gomez clumsily bundled into the back of Jarrod Bowen, conceding a penalty that was awarded by the referee after a pitchside review.

Bowen got up to take the spot kick himself and it was palmed aside by Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

It completed a big week for Liverpool. Since losing to Arsenal 3-2 on Oct. 9, Jurgen Klopp’s team has routed Rangers 7-1 in the Champions League and earned back-to-back wins in the Premier League.

The result lifted Liverpool to seventh place, 11 points behind leader Arsenal.

FORMER energy minister Conrad Enill became TT’s non-resident ambassadorto Suriname on Wednesday when he presented his credentials to Suriname President Chandrikapersad “Chan” Santokhi.

Enill had also become TT resident high commissioner to Guyana on July 19, when he presented his credentials to Guyanese President Dr Mohamed Irfaan.

Enill is a former National Gas Company (NGC) chairman and of Phoenix Park Gas Processors Ltd.

A statement on the Facebook page of the Suriname public information office, CDS, said Santokhi received credentials from Enill, plus the ambassadors of Japan (Yutaka Matsubara), Mexico (Víctor Meléndez) and the European Union (Rene Van Nes) in a ceremony at the presidential palace.

The statement said Santokhi said Enill’s appointment offered an opportunity to further develop relations between TT and Suriname, after a letter of intent was signed earlier this year between the state oil companies of both countries.

It quoted Santokhi as saying, “We need to further explore opportunities for co-operation in the oil and gas industry, food security, tourism and experience sharing. We also need to encourage more people-to-people contacts.”

Enill said, “TT, Suriname, Barbados and Guyana must work together collectively to realise their potential.

“We have to work for the next generations. Suriname offers sufficient opportunities for structural, but above all sustainable co-operation.”

Ten Latin women who were detained in a raid at a suspected Montrose brothel were expected to be interviewed by the Counter Trafficking Unit (CTU) on Wednesday.

The women whose ages range from 17 to 38, were detained when members of the Financial Investigations Bureau, the Central Division Task Force and the Counter Trafficking Unit visited the building where they were being kept on Eric Street, West, early on Tuesday morning.

Sources said not much information was available on what led to the raid and arrests, as the investigation was at a “sensitive stage.”

Also arrested were six local men, a Latin man, a local woman and a Jamaican woman.

Central Division police are working with national security agencies on the investigation.

EVICTED from their rented home, a family of three, including an 11-year-old schoolgirl, is spending their third night on the streets of Vistabella, amongst their belongings.

Brother and sister William and Esther Ogle, along with Esther’s daughter, Xiamoria, are pleading for a Good Samaritan to help them find shelter.

“We are in dire straits and in pain. We have nowhere to live. We are on the streets with all of our things. We are crying and begging for a place to rest our head,” Ogle told Newsday.

William and Esther, who are of Guyanese origin, became naturalised citizens of Trinidad and Tobago over two decades ago. Esther’s daughter was born in TT. She is a student of Girls’ Government School, Rushworth Street, San Fernando.

Since Monday she has not been to school, and it is not certain when she will return, as the family are homeless.

Ogle said during the pandemic he and his sister both fell on hard times and decided to rent an apartment together to share financial responsibilities. Eleven months ago they found an apartment at Joga Grant Street, Vistabella, but their happiness was short-lived.

He said he had many difficult encounters with the other tenants and his landlord, and they also struggled to pay their rent.

He said he usually paid rent on the first of the month, but asked to pay his October rent at the end of the month.

On October 5, he said he was instructed to leave the apartment no later than October 17, although the landlord was holding his security deposit.

All of their belongings were put out at the corner of Lambie and Joga Grant Street, where the family sat under umbrellas to protect them from the sun and rain.

Ogle said he and his sister have applied for a HDC home, but in the interim they are pleading for help to find a home.

Newsday contacted the landlord, who said he was the wrong person to speak to and wished this reporter a good afternoon.
