I understand that there is a very serious reconstruction effort on the way now”. “We stand ready to help as much as we can and in particular the Caribbean Development Bank and the World Bank will be important partners in that reconstruction effort. We will do everything we can to ensure that this money is disbursed smoothly and the bureaucracy is as limited as possible.”The British High Commissioner stated that development assistance through Aid packages will also be forthcoming towards creating jobs, providing assistance to small businesses and tackling climate change issues.The British Government according to the new Ambassador will also assist Dominica in its continued crime and drug fighting efforts.“Tackling drugs and crime I hope will also be an important part of our cooperation. We all know of the scourge of drugs on families, businesses and communities because of the role of traffickers. The British Government has provided some assistance to Dominica in the past on this, and we stand ready to continue that work.”Meanwhile, Dominica’s Head of State H.E. Charles Savarin in welcoming the new British High Commissioner to Dominica, expressed confidence that both countries will continue to expand on existing bi-relations.“I have every confidence that you will continue the work of your predecessors in strengthening the bonds of friendship and cooperation between Dominica and the United Kingdom and that you will also embrace every opportunity to expand and deepen bi-lateral and multi lateral cooperation as we strive for the development of our two peoples.”Since the establishment of diplomatic relations with the United Kingdom on attaining Independence in 1978, Dominica has benefited and continues to benefit through fruitful bilateral cooperation in human resource development, infrastructural development, security and the fight against crime, and poverty alleviation.Significant EU funded projects in Dominica include the Air Access Improvement Programme, Dominica Social Investment Fund, Waitukubuli National Trail Programme, Eco-Tourism Development Programme and the West Coast Water Supply Project.Government Information Service LocalNews Dominica welcomes new British High Commissioner by: – January 23, 2014 51 Views   no discussionscenter_img Tweet Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

KPBSD Contract Negotiations Set To Resume

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai Peninsula Education Association and Kenai Peninsula Educational Support Association still remain without a contract after their last bargaining session which took place over a month ago. Contract negotiations are set to reconvene on August 13 with the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. David Brighton, KPEA President: “We have three sticking points with the District. The first is that we need to remove the healthcare cap. The second is we can’t agree with the district who says we’ll sign off on a contract now and figure the details out at the healthcare committee later. We need to know what the healthcare benefits are going forward. And finally we need to be sure that employees will take home a paycheck and not be forced to write a check to the district for the cost for their healthcare.” The associations voted on May 22 to authorize a strike over rising healthcare costs. The strike will take place this fall unless an agreement can be reached with the School District. KPBSD offered ideas for a new contract at the meeting on June 11, which took place just weeks after the two associations voted to strike. Both the Kenai Peninsula Education Association and the Kenai Peninsula Educational Support Association have been in negotiations with the District since February of 2018.last_img read more

IAAF accused of ‘blatant racism’ over new testosterone level

first_imgAthletics The IAAF has been accused of “blatant racism” by the ruling party of South Africa, the African National Congress, over its new regulations on testosterone levels. On Thursday the IAAF introduced the regulations aimed at athletes with differences of sex development. The rules limit the testosterone levels of female athletes competing over distances between 400m and a mile. The rules will have an impact on Caster Semenya, South Africa’s world and Olympic 800m champion, who now has to take medication to lower her testosterone levels to keep competing at that distance. The South African minister of sport, Tokozile Xasa, described them as “Caster Semenya Regulations as they are designed to disadvantage Caster in her career”. The ANC spokesman Pule Mabe also compared the new IAAF regulations to government policies in apartheid South Africa. “The regulations are a painful reminder of our past where an unjust government specifically legislated laws for certain activists in society to stifle their fight against an unjust system,” he said. “The IAAF uses the same tactic to exclude those who have defined the past decade as champions and treasures of their home countries. We call on government to challenge this grossly unfair, unjust and blatant racist attempt by the IAAF to the court of arbitration for sport. “The ANC has always understood sport as a unifier and a tool to bring people and nations together. It is for this reason and many that the ANC cannot ignore the attempt by the IAAF to discriminate and exclude athletes. These new regulations infringe on the human rights of athletes, targeting mainly those in east Europe, Asia and the African continent. The racial undertones of this cannot go unnoticed.” Xasa added: “South Africans and all progressive people of the world must unite and support Caster and all affected athletes in this regard. Caster is not just an athlete to people of South Africa – she represents their hopes and aspirations. She is a pathfinder to the rural poor and downtrodden, she is an affirmation of black excellence. She undermines a stereotype that nothing good will ever come from the rural villages.” The secretary general of the women’s league of the ANC, Meokgo Matuba, described the new regulations as the culmination of a “concerted effort to please some of the sore racist losers who cannot afford to see a black female South African athlete dominating the world”. The backlash in South Africa comes at a time when a number of leading experts in statistics, sports science, and bioethics are raising serious concerns about the study that underpins the new IAAF regulations. This study was conducted by Dr Stéphane Bermon and Dr Pierre-Yves Garnier at the 2011 and 2013 world championships. The authors claimed to have found that “in certain events female athletes with high testosterone levels benefit from a 1.8 per cent to 4.5 per cent advantage over female athletes with lower testosterone levels”. The methodology that produced those figures has been discredited, and the validity of the entire study widely questioned. In a recent blog published by the British Journal of Sports Medicine three academics, Simon Franklin, Jonathan Ospina Betancurt, and Dr Silvia Camporesi write: “Contrary to what IAAF claims, science is not [on] its side.” The authors believe the Bermon study was “significantly flawed”, some of its conclusions the “result of pure chance” and that the “IAAF have cherry-picked a few events for which a statistically significant correlation was shown in the original Bermon/Garnier study, and applied restrictions on athletes only for those events. This constitutes a seriously wrong application of scientific findings.” Like Xasa, they believe that the new regulations “seem targeted towards Caster Semenya.”last_img read more

It reminded me of a modern-day version of the front-panel looks of my youth, like the Blue Jays and Brewers. I like the concept more than I like it for the Mets specifically.I know I’ve stated on here before that the Mets need to dump black, and I still think they should revert to the blue-orange only, but I don’t think it’s going to happen, especially with the sales success reported recently on here. I actually like some of the combos. I just wish they’d use it less (much like I wish the Cubs wouldn’t wear the blue alt at home).So, I’m chalking the Mets up as a lost cause, as much as I’d like to see them go traditional. Also, I liked the Rockies’ black alt with purple sleeves. I think it’s OK to try new things, especially with expansion teams.Not sure I’d get ripped for it, but I like the Jaguars’ teal jersey-black pants combo (even better when they had stripes) and the Titans’ light-blue alt with navy pants combos.

When everyone was waiting to see how their team was going to shape up in the off season, I was the one who was wondering on who was changing their unis. I am a fan of uniwatch and the ‘making it better’ columns on Page 2. And since finding out about these forums, I knew I have found others like myself.With that being said, man there is a lot of negative posts and feelings on these forums. I see a lot of ‘I hate this…’ or ‘Worst logo’ or ‘ oh no not another….’ posts. Which got me thinking, what do people actually like nowadays. The problem on these forums is that the moment you mention you like something that not everyone likes, then you get 10 replies stating that you must be on crack for liking that.I have some things I like that isn’t popular with you folks. I think it would be an interesting topic discussion to have things you like that the ‘majority’ might not. Why not?Okay here the rules, state something you like that you know you would get 10 replies stating that you shouldn’t. And tell us why you like it? Why do you like a certain style or maybe a certain logo. And remember, DON”T REPLY TO ANYONE”s GuiLTY Pleasure.Alright, I will start. I like it when a team especially a football team comes out with different combos. Yes, I like the Bengals equipment manager. I like it when a team with 3 tops and 2 pants go crazy with different combos. Why not? Why do we have to be the same unis every week. Why not have orange on white or black and black. Be different once in a while. Are you listening Texans or Panthers? I like seeing eagle wear black with green pants. It looks cool when they do it for a special occasion.see… now your turn, what is your guilty pleasures, come on lets have some fun 741 posts Guilty Pleasureslast_img read more
