Shaquan Haynes gave Deacons FC the lead in the 24th minute, then captain Keon Atkins converted from the penalty spot in the 44th minute.

Speedy forward Kavian Innis provided further daylight between the teams when he scored Deacons’ third goal in the 45th minute.

Deacons’ high was met with a severe low in the 70th minute, when Atkins was given marching orders by referee Jermaine Newsam after his arm made contact with an opponent’s face.

Despite a numerical advantage, Fitts Village never troubled Deacons’ goalkeeper Kevon Allsopp or his defense.

Substitute Shamaine Richards capped off an impressive game for Deacons FC when he scored the fourth goal in the 92nd minute.

Wotton were relentless in their encounter versus southern neighbours Potential Ballers.

The Premier League representatives blanked their opponents 6-0 with seemingly little effort.

The goal rush began in the 13th minute when Kemar John received a pass on the right flank, cut inside his marker and drilled a left footed shot inside the near post.

Four minutes later, Wotton added a second goal.

A quick exchange of passes at the top of the penalty area, released Emerald George on the left side of the penalty area, who then picked out an unmarked Khalil Gill to slot home from close range.

On the stroke of half time, captain and former national forward Kyle Gibson, calmly slotted home his one-on-one effort beyond the on-rushing goalkeeper Jamar Harewood.

After the break, Wotton continued where they left off and Gill scored his second goal after being picked out by Mark Bushell, courtesy of a well worked short corner with George in the 54th minute.

Gibson was on the scoresheet again in the 63rd minute, and Bushell again providing the assist from a right side cross.

Substitute Tarrel Williams sealed an inevitable victory for Wotton with a fine solo-run goal in the 72nd minute.

Les deux îles viennent d’entrer en phase épidémique pour la bronchiolite, informe, ce jeudi 27 octobre, Santé Publique France.

La Guadeloupe et la Martinique sont sous surveillance : les deux îles sont entrées en phase épidémique de bronchiolite. C’est ce qu’indique, ce jeudi, Santé Publique France, après avoir constaté depuis plusieurs semaines une recrudescence du phénomène.



En Martinique, les indicateurs de surveillance sont à un niveau élevé en ville et à l’hôpital depuis plusieurs semaines, note la cellule régionale Antilles.

Au cours des 4 dernières semaines, près de 300 consultations chez un médecin généraliste pour bronchiolite du nourrisson (<2 ans) ont été estimées sur le territoire (soit 75 consultations hebdomadaires en moyenne). Ce qui est supérieur aux 4 semaines précédentes avec 185 consultations (soit 45 consultations hebdomadaires en moyenne).

Au cours de la semaine dernière, 65 consultations ont été estimées sur l’ensemble de l’île (contre 80 une semaine plut tôt).



La situation semble encore plus sensible en Guadeloupe, où l’activité est très élevée à l’hôpital (urgences et hospitalisations) ainsi qu’en médecine libérale.

Le nombre de consultations hebdomadaires pour bronchiolite en médecine de ville continue d’augmenter la semaine dernière avec près de 120 consultations estimées sur l’ensemble de l’archipel (contre 80 consultations la semaine précédente).

Au cours des trois dernières semaines, près de 100 consultations en moyenne par semaine ont été réalisées chez un médecin généraliste (contre 35 consultations hebdomadaires en moyenne au cours des 3 semaines précédentes).

Le nombre de passages aux urgences (CHU, Clinique des Eaux Claires et CH Basse-Terre) pour bronchiolite du nourrisson a atteint 39 passages, comparable aux pics de passages enregistrés lors des saisons 2019-2020 et



Pour les deux îles, « la saison 2022-2023 de bronchiolite est amorcée », relève Santé Publique France. Plus au nord, les îles de Saint-Martin (premiers cas évocateurs et premiers passages aux urgences) et Saint-Barthélémy (calme pour le moment) sont suivies avec attention.



Companies Office establishes anti-money laundering unit Loop Jamaica

The Companies Office of Jamaica (COJ) has established an Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism and Proliferation of Arms Financing (AML&CTF) Department in keeping with its goal to meet international standards set by the Financial Action Task Force.

The establishment of the unit, which is charged with ensuring that information received regarding beneficial owners is accurate and current, also aligns with amendments to the Companies Act which proposes that the reporting of beneficial ownership information for each company become mandatory.

As part of its enforcement activities, the unit will also conduct field visits, inspect the Register of Members and any other relevant documentation of entities, impose pecuniary penalties, as well as, refer entities for litigation and removal. Only specified bodies, agencies and entities will have access to beneficial ownership information.

In a press release, the COJ said the new AML & CTF department, along with the amendments to the Companies Act, might clear the path for Jamaica to be taken off FATF’s grey list as well as the blacklist of the European Union.

Amendments to the Companies Act are expected to be tabled in both Houses of Parliament this calendar year will ensure greater transparency and improved corporate governance in companies as well as reduce the risk of legal persons such as companies being abused and used for money laundering and terrorism and proliferation of arms financing.

If the proposals are accepted by parliament, all companies including non-profits and overseas companies will have to identify and indicate the beneficial owners of companies; a beneficial owner is any natural person/s that exercise/s ultimate ownership and ultimate effective control of a company.

The new obligations include submitting detailed particulars of beneficial owners and identifying politically exposed persons who are members or officers of a company.

Companies may also face increased sanctions for not filing on time, not providing accurate information, not allowing the Registrar access to verify information, not keeping records for stipulated periods and not filing change documents for beneficial owners as mandated.


Govt improving services at National Psychiatric Hospital

Minister of Health Dr Frank Anthony

Mental Health remains a priority area for the government, and the Ministry of Health has committed to improving the delivery of mental health services in Guyana.

Minister of Health, Dr Frank Anthony said the Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Bills will help to reorganise mental health care in Guyana.

The Ministry is focusing on improving services at the National Psychiatric Hospital in Berbice.

“We have a new psychiatrist that has been relocated to the National Psychiatric Hospital. We have adequate staff at the institution, in addition to the nursing staff we have psychiatric aids that are working there. We have more than 70 psychiatric aids that would assist patients on a 24-hour basis. So, we have been constantly working to improve the facilities and the services that we offer at the psychiatric hospital,” Dr Anthony said.

Minister Anthony noted that when the government took office in 2020, mental health was neglected. There was also poor service at the facility.

The government is now working with patients to see less institutionalisation, one of the provisions in the new Mental Health Legislation.

“One of the active programmes that we are working on is to deinstitutionalise the patients that we have there because once they are through with their acute phase then they can be managed closer to home,” the Health Minister said.

This would require less staff to be present at the hospital itself, but persons can be managed by returning home and attending regular clinics for medication.
