Steven Ma, Assistant General Manager of Bosai’s Overseas Department, briefed Minister Trotman and his team.Ma noted that construction was set to begin in July and some 550 locals from the Region and across Guyana would be employed during this phase as well as the production phase. Currently, GMI is employing 20 locals in the engineering design and survey phase.GMI is investing US$100 million in the first phase of development. During the construction phase, the ore processing plant, washing plant, warehouses and factory will be established. The company is currently procuring equipment, Ma explained.He pointed out that the company was facing logistics challenges in terms of moving the ore from the plant to market. While road and port facilities were identified, GMI, Ma said, is currently mapping and surveying these to design the best solution going forward.Minister Trotman noted that the Government was committed to doing work on the road, but would do so in collaboration with the company, particularly as it related to maintenance. He also committed to discussing the sharing of facilities with bauxite company Rusal, as GMI resolved the logistics challenge.The Minister stressed the importance of mining in Region One to GMI. “We’d like to see a resurgence in this region and so Government is very keen on getting it started,” he is quoted by the Department of Public Information (DPI) as saying.Minister Trotman also charged the company to honour its corporate social responsibility and singled out the community hospital for attention in this regard.Chinese Ambassador Cui said he was proud of the example Bosai has set in Linden and charged GMI to have a similar integrated approach in Region One.“Through this project, try to push more to let the people benefit. I am concerned that we can create more jobs for the local community,” Ambassador Cui stated. He also encouraged the company to be a good corporate citizen.GMI purchased four prospecting licences that cover an area of 45,729 acres, exploration results, mineral agreement, certain properties and infrastructure from RMI of Canada in November 2016.The total manganese resource in Matthews Ridge is some 26 million tonnes. Ma said to produce the manganese concentrate, the company will have to mine some two million tonnes per year which will see the life of the operation lasting some 12-13 years, if there were no other resources added.last_img read more

Self-care1, 2Take care of yourself first by eating healthy, participating in hobbies and regular physical activity, and getting plenty of sleepView yourself in a positive light and talk to yourself with careTake time to yourself for relaxation By: Annabelle Shaffer, BS, Master’s candidate in the Division of Nutritional Sciences at University of Illinois Urbana-ChampaignWhat is resilience?We often think of resilience as our ability to tough it out through a bad situation alone.1 But, resilience is much more. It is a skill we consciously work to build and it allows us to adapt to undesired situations, such as workplace stressors or the death of a loved one.2 Having resilience also means we don’t attempt to face all of life’s’ challenges on our own, rather, we reach out to friends, family, and professionals for support. Resilience is great, how do we build it?Research shows that resilience is associated with optimism, self-confidence, humor, adaptability, self-esteem, hope, and flexibility.3 Several strategies to build personal resilience have been identified and relate to building and maintaining personal relationships, self-care, and maintaining a positive outlook on one’s professional and personal life.Building and maintain personal relationships1, 2Seek out opportunities to meet new people, such as faith groups, volunteering, or exercise clubsKeep in touch with close friends via electronics or in-person meetingsRemain close with family members and help one another whenever possiblecenter_img Maintaining a positive outlook on one’s professional and personal life1,2Accept that change is a part of living and look for the positives in each changeBe proactive in resolving challenges: create plans to resolve challenges and seek help when neededMove towards your personal and professional goals: always set realistic and achievable goals. Use the SMART goal method4 to ensure you can reach your goals:Specific: Do you know exactly what you are working to achieve?Measurable: Can you consistently measure your progress?Attainable: Do you have the necessary tools, time, and resources to reach your goal?Realistic: Based on where you are at currently, can you actually achieve this goal?Timely: Do you have a starting and ending date?

You Are Not Defined By Your Problems. You Are Defined By Your Response.

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now You should never be upset about the things that happen in the normal course of business. You should take these things seriously, and you should do your best to try to prevent the things that go wrong—especially if they are systemic. But when the things that are always going to go wrong do go wrong, being emotional isn’t of much use.I learned this from flying. Your plane is going to be delayed. Your crew is going to show up late, and so will your pilots. You will have mechanicals that prevent you from being able to fly, and you are going to get stuck for hours. Fortunately, if I have a laptop and a video camera, I have work available, and I have the time to do it (even if the environment isn’t always what I would want it to be).Your operations team is going to struggle to execute the solution you sold your dream client. They are going to miss deadlines, and your client is going to be unhappy—or worse. Sometimes it will be your team’s fault, and sometimes it will be your client that needs to make changes. Because it happens, there is no reason to respond emotionally, as that only makes it more difficult to make the changes you need to back to get things back on track.The accounts receivable department is going to bill your new client incorrectly. For five weeks in a row. You are only going to be notified when your client has overpaid tens of thousands of dollars, and only when the problem is large enough to make them question your integrity. There is no reason to rip into anyone for making a mistake. The only thing for you to do is to make sure it is corrected, and ensure that if the problem is systemic, that someone does something to put a new process in place.I promise you are going to have unreasonable clients, ones with unreasonable expectations who don’t pick up their end of the stick, and who are just difficult personalities. Almost none of their vitriol or hostility has anything to do with you. They didn’t sleep well. They are dehydrated. They have low blood sugar. They have an overdue bill they are having trouble paying. They have an elderly parent they are trying to take care of, and they are under stress taking care of their own family. All you can do is give them your very best effort to take care of them.Take problems seriously, but not personally. These challenges don’t define you, even when you created the problem or challenge. How you respond is what defines you. Are you positive, empowered, optimistic, and future-oriented? Your job is to define yourself by possessing these attributes, and by doing your very best work.last_img read more
