Caricom leaders endorse course of action on Zika virus

first_imgCaricom Chairman Dean Barrow Caribbean Community (Caricom) leaders have endorsed a course of action to deal with the spread of the mosquito-borne Zika virus and other diseases, Caricom Chairman Dean Barrow said Wednesday.Barrow, the prime minister of Belize, said that his colleagues had agreed at their inter-sessional summit to undertake continuous public education on the virus and other diseases spread by the Aedes aegypti mosquito.He said there will also be action to implement at ports of entry, health facilities, schools, and private enterprises such as hotels and tourism facilities. “We also agreed that we will designate the second week of May as Caribbean Mosquito Awareness Week. Governments are being asked to look at a temporary reduction in import tax on essential public health supplies, such as insecticide-treated beds, insect repellent for the duration of the epidemic in the region.“Nobody knows how long it will last, but we are thinking of the possibility of two years,” he said, adding that the regional leaders have asked the Trinidad based Caribbean Regional Health Agency (CARPHA) and the Guyana-based Caricom Secretariat to report to the Council for Human and Social Development on Health on the implementation and effectiveness of the course of action the leaders have agreed to.“CARPHA made a presentation to the leaders on the disease that has so far been detected in five Caricom countries. Prime Minister Barrow said on the issue of climate change, the regional leaders were pleased with the Caribbean’s representation at the COP21 conference in Paris last year.“We commend the team. We are of course determined that we maintain the engagement full on so that we can support our goal of 1.5 degrees Celsius, noting that at the current levels of commitment, temperature would rise to more than 2.7 degrees.”Prime Minister Barrow said while Caricom was able to get references and recognition “of our goal, the fact is that the way things are currently proceeding we will not realise that goal and, therefore, the pressure must be maintained”.He said that the regional task force on sustainable development headed by St Lucia’s Environment Minister Dr James Fletcher would be maintained “to facilitate the implementation of the agreement reached in Paris”.Prime Minister Barrow said an appeal was being made to all regional leaders to be able to attend the signing of the accord at the United Nations on April 22.last_img read more

New Halibut Management Implementations

first_imgFor the 2015-2016 halibut season in Southcentral Alaska(3A) the council recommended a two fish daily bag limit with one of those fish 29 inches or below, one trip per day, a prohibition of charter fishing on Thursdays, a one trip per day limit for charter vessels and a five fish annual limit. The International Pacific Halibut Commission will also consider the implementations when they meet at the end of January. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享New regulations were suggested by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council in December in order to reduce the amount of halibut caught by sport fishermen. Baker: “It’s basically because there aren’t as many young fish recruiting into the fishery is one reason and the fish also aren’t growing to as large of size as they have in more recent history.”center_img When the limit of two fish per day with one being 29 inches or less was implemented we spoke with Rachel Baker of NOAA. These recommendations were due to higher than forecast harvest numbers in the area when halibut have already experienced decline over the last few years.last_img read more

Aubusson defied odds to play 300 games

first_imgRugby League Phil Gould once described his first impression of Mitch Aubusson by saying “if he was a horse in the parade ring at the sales, I doubt he would’ve attracted too many bids based on appearance”. His smaller, skinnier frame coming through the grades may not have caught the eye but the compliments have come far and wide this week for the versatile, reliable, consistent Mr Fix-it of the Tricolours. He will become the 40th player to join the game’s elite 300 club and 16th player to do so at one club on Thursday night when he runs out for the Roosters against the Dragons in Wollongong. It should come as no surprise he wanted to keep the occasion as low key as possible. No fuss and minimal attention. “But I’ve always believed in that because it’s the truth,” Aubusson told NRL.com. “What’s happening this week is the Roosters are playing St George Illawarra and whatever has happened in the last 300 games, I’ll try and keep it as low-key as I have throughout my career.” Roosters coach Trent Robinson offered a wry smile on Wednesday morning when asked if Aubusson had been any different leading into the milestone match. “No different at all,” Robinson said. “It’s funny for Aubo and hard for him these weeks because he gets put to the forefront and so he should. “He just wants to get on with it. It’s uncomfortable for him but he should be recognised. It’s an honour to coach him and an honour to see him run out there tomorrow.” “It shouldn’t matter how big you are but when it’s your time you have to step up. That’s been stuck with me for a long time.” “It’s something I’ve had to prepare for and work to make sure I’m available for selection as I could. No matter if it’s in any position, for 80 minutes or 10 minutes.” Aubusson is adamant he never got close to departing the Tricolours throughout stages of his career despite reports linking him to the Gold Coast Titans and St George Illawarra Dragons on big-money offers. His 300-game one-club loyalty is set to be rewarded with Roosters supremo Nick Politis eager to keep him on board in an off-field role once he decides to retire. But the last word on Aubusson goes to wife, Laura, a journalist, who wrote an article for Kidspot.com.au on why their daughter Daisy was lucky to have a role model like Mitchell as her father. “If you asked those who call him a role model why they look up to him they would talk more about character and less about footy,” she wrote. “It would be about his self-assurance and focused mentality, his commitment to be accountable and thorough, his ability to adapt, his loyalty, and the way he sets positive examples as a leader. All traits you need in life to be successful, as well as a good person. “When my daughter says her dad is her role model it won’t be because he shows her some old DVDs or rings. It will be because he put work in and made it, in a motivating way.”last_img read more

North Carolina looks for 6th NCAA title against Villanova

first_imgThe Tar Heels (33-6) last won it all in 2009 and Villanova’s only title came in 1985.Both teams advanced to the championship game with lopsided wins, but Villanova’s was far more of a blowout than North Carolina’s.The top-seeded Tar Heels beat 10-seed Syracuse 83-66 on Saturday night in a national semifinal for their 10th straight win. That was after the Wildcats made easy work of Buddy Hield and Oklahoma, with a 95-51 trampling that was the biggest margin of victory in a national semifinal game. Villanova (34-5) did it with 71.4 percent shooting led by Josh Hart, who scored 23 points on 10 of 12 shooting. HOUSTON (AP) — North Carolina will look for its sixth NCAA championship when the Tar Heels meet the Villanova Wildcats, trying for their second, on Monday night. That percentage was the second best in the history of the Final Four. The only team to shoot a higher percentage was that eighth-seeded team in 1985 eighth-seeded team coached by Rollie Massimino which shot 78.6 percent to pull an upset over Georgetown in the final.“They shot the ball very efficient tonight,” Hield said of Villanova. “If a team do this, I feel they can go win it all.”It won’t be easy against the only No. 1 seed to advance to the Final Four this season. Coach Roy Williams has already led two North Carolina teams to championships and this squad has won each of its five tournament games this year by an average of 16.2 points.Nevada sports books opened betting on the title game with North Carolina as a 2-point favorite.Williams wasn’t ready to talk about the next game just minutes after North Carolina had wrapped up its semifinal victory.“Marty Schottenheimer, the coach of the Chiefs a long time ago, had the greatest saying in the world: ‘Enjoy the dickens out of it until midnight and then worry about that other team,’” he said.North Carolina has reached the title game for the 10th time and it will be just the third appearance for Villanova.The two schools have some tournament history with the Tarheels beating Villanova in the tournament on the way to their titles in 1982, 2005 and 2009. They downed the Wildcats in the national semifinals in 2009 before beating Michigan State for the championship.The Wildcats seemed to handle their easy win exactly the way a coach would hope a team with its biggest game to come would. Forward Daniel Ochefu, who was one of six Villanova players to score in double figures, insisted there was no postgame revelry after Saturday night’s victory.“It was very businesslike,” he said. “No one was celebrating. Everyone understands that our next game on Monday we’ll be playing a great team and we’re not celebrating. We told each other at the end of the game that we have a lot of work to do. We can still get better.”North Carolina also had a balanced scoring attack in its semifinal win with Brice Johnson and Justin Jackson adding 16 points each to go with 15 from Kennedy Meeks and Marcus Paige’s 13.But it was the defensive effort of the Tar Heels that Williams was most excited about.“The last four weeks we’ve been much, much better defensively,” he said. “We had a brain lapse there for about three minutes in the second half, but other than that I thought we were really good defensively against a team that’s hard to guard.”The matchup on Monday could be interesting inside after both teams dominated in the paint on Saturday. Villanova outscored Oklahoma 38-20 inside and North Carolina had more points but the same margin by making 50 inside to 32 by Syracuse.“Our main goal is to play a similar goal to what we played tonight, get the ball inside, really try to pound it in there and knock down our free throws,” Meeks said. That percentage was the second best in the history of the Final Four.

Interview and Interrogation Training: Whether to Escort to the Interview

first_imgThis week’s International Association of Interviewers interview and interrogation training tip provided by Wicklander-Zulawski, has Wayne Hoover, CFI discussing the decision whether we should escort an individual to the interview.When calling an individual to the interview, we really have a couple of options: Should we have them escorted, or should there be no escort. If you have an individual that has evidence on them, you typically want them escorted so that they don’t discard evidence. However, in some cases where they don’t have any known evidence on them you may choose not to use and escort, giving the impression that we’re just having a meeting.

Flag Day 2016

first_imgIn the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on June 14th in 1777, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. The United States Army also celebrates the Army Birthday on this date; Congress adopted “the American Continental Army” after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress. Flag Day is not an official federal holiday, however, it is at the president’s discretion to officially proclaim the observance. On June 14, 1937, Pennsylvania became the first state to make it a state holiday. New York Statutes designate the second Sunday in June as Flag Day, a state holiday.Perhaps the oldest continuing Flag Day parade is in Fairfield, Washington. Beginning in 1909 or 1910, Fairfield has held a parade every year since, with the possible exception of 1918, and celebrated the “Centennial” parade in 2010, along with some other commemorative events. Appleton, Wisconsin, claims to be the oldest National Flag Day parade in the nation, held annually since 1950. It was also named “Most Patriotic City in America” by AmericaTheBeautiful.com in 2008. Quincy, Massachusetts, has had an annual Flag Day parade since 1952 and claims it “is the longest-running parade of its kind in the nation.” The largest Flag Day parade is held annually in Troy, New York, which bases its parade on the Quincy parade and typically draws 50,000 spectators. In addition, the Three Oaks, Michigan, Flag Day Parade is held annually on the weekend of Flag Day and is a three-day event and they claim to have the largest flag day parade in the nation as well as the oldest.
