Jerseys NFL Cheap ”Ralph Seeram can be reached email

By Ralph SeeramIn my youth and during my early adult days I always considered myself a strong swimmer. In fact I often wondered how people could drown if they know how to swim. I was confident that I could not drown.I swam in ponds, trenches, canals,Wholesale NBA Jerseys, creeks and rivers. One of my youthful fantasies was to swim the Berbice River from New Amsterdam to Blairmont on the western bank of the Berbice River. I even did some preliminary studies to see where I would start and with the current, where I would finish.Unfortunately that youthful passion was not realised,China Jerseys, and I blame some of my friends who did not see the wisdom of accompanying me on a swim across the river.I have long come around to my friends’ point of view, and that boyhood dream will remain unfulfilled, why? Well some things are not worth risking your life for.This brings me to the dismissal of Magistrate Omeyana Hamilton. It seems unconscionable that this young woman could lose her job because she refused to endanger her life. I was on a jet boat to Bartica a few years ago, and I can tell you, there is no way I am going back on that boat. I don’t know if the idiots that fired her ever travelled on that ride. By what right or authority did those fools have to order Ms Hamilton to expose herself to the perils of the mighty Essequibo River.Speaking of judges, I have heard unflattering stories here in the Diaspora of certain judges. Let us just say that corruption is not limited to politicians. That, however, is a subject for another day.I rather suspect that there must be more to the story than what is being told. From the reports I have read it would seem that the magistrate was a dedicated and hard working person. To dismiss her for something that does not even appear to be an infraction, or dereliction of her duty, seems to be very petty.In view of the backlog in the legal system in Guyana, one would have thought that the judiciary would try to reach a compromise and retain the services of Magistrate Hamilton. This dismissal could prove to be a potential liability for the Guyanese taxpayers.I personally feel that the young lady is within her rights to refuse putting her life and limb in jeopardy.Many years ago I worked in New York City as a Computer Network Technician. That was way before people heard of a computer network. The job required travelling frequently to various states to install computer systems. One assignment was to install a system for a very important client; in fact he was a billionaire and was featured on the cover of Time magazine.The trip called for travelling from New York to Boston,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, change to a smaller plane to Martha’s Vineyard and then on to my final destination of Nantucket. I completed my assignment,China Jerseys Wholesale, and on the way back discovered that I was the only passenger leaving the island for Boston.The airline decided to fly me out on a five-seater single engine plane. I was no stranger to flying; I had over 200,000 frequent flyers miles to my credit, but this was a very terrifying flight.That small plane dropped thirty feet suddenly, went up twenty-five and bucked like that all the way to Boston. I thought for sure I would have died that night.The next day I told my boss that regardless of how important the client is, I am definitely not flying in any single engine plane.Considering the liability, the company agreed with my position. On another occasion the company suggested that I drive some three to four hours to an assignment instead of fly, which would have taken about forty-five minutes. I opted to fly. I would have rather risked losing the job than open myself to danger.So I am back to magistrate Hamilton and that speedboat ride. I was travelling to Bartica and to a resort on the Essequibo. The resort provided the transportation. I recall the speedboat taking off from Parika. I asked for a lifejacket, and the one provided could not have kept a baby afloat.The boat was going straight,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, then a sudden ninety degree turn, followed by a forty five degree turn, then an S turn, and so it went. I asked the captain the reason for this, for which he replied, “Don’t worry. I know this river like the back of my hand. I know where de logs deh, where the tree root deh, where the sand and channel deh.” And so it went on. I looked at the mighty Essequibo River and said to myself, on my best swimming day I would not like to swim here. I had my daughter and sister on the trip, and considering how dangerous I perceived the situation to be I asked the captain to slow it down a little.I can understand why the Magistrate got nauseated. Those sudden turns are enough to make one vomit.I have seen people get nauseated and vomit on a large cruise ship. It was such an embarrassment to the person because it happened on the dinner table. If one can get nauseated on a cruise ship,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, why do those idiots feel that the young lady cannot get an upset stomach on a little speedboat?While she may not have said so, I am sure she feels that her life could be in danger. It’s not worth losing her life for the job.Ironically, if she can be dismissed for the petty issue of mode of transportation, then I would suggest to Omeyana that the job “does not deserve you. I am sure you can do better things with your life and your legal training. Go where you will be appreciated. By the way can you swim?”Ralph Seeram can be reached email: [email protected]
