Municipal Corporation to undertake infrastructure development of city

first_img Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKingston, Jamaica, December 16, 2016 – Newly installed Mayor of Kingston and St. Andrew, Senator, Councillor Delroy Williams, says the Municipal Corporation will undertake a comprehensive programme of infrastructural development across the city.  He said this would facilitate significant local economic activity, while supporting the Government’s national growth agenda.  The new Mayor was giving his inaugural address during Thursday’s (December 15) installation ceremony at the Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation on Church Street, downtown Kingston.Among the priority areas, Senator Williams said, are the expansion of the city’s seaport; continued renovations in downtown Kingston; and increasing the speed of development approvals.Senator Williams said pivotal to these activities is timely implementation of provisions under the Town and Country Planning Act, Local Improvement Act and Building Act.  “We are committed to the orderly and progressive development of our city,” he said.Noting the Council’s cognisance of its role in the national growth agenda, Senator Williams gave the Corporation’s undertaking to execute its tasks to this end effectively and efficiently. “We will act within the statutory powers to be a facilitator,” he said.   “Development must be in keeping with the principles of good town and country planning. The management and enforcement of planning development and building control in the city will take center stage in our administration of the Municipal Corporation,” the Mayor emphasized.Senator Williams also underscored the need to establish “better synergies and linkages” to facilitate economic growth.   “We must not be obstructive to growth and development. But this must take place in a context of order and respect for the law. We must build a vibrant economy and the Municipal Corporation will play its role (in this regard),” he added.Senator Williams said the Corporation is also committed to facilitating cruise-ship stopovers in Kingston, and assured that “we will join hands with those who have been championing the effort”. He noted that entertainment is also critical to Kingston’s social, cultural and economic landscape.Senator Williams said the industry must be facilitated, based on its potential to create small, medium and large business opportunities.   “We are committed to facilitate and not hinder, but we must operate in the context of order. We must understand that Kingston cannot be the Pearl of the Antilles without the entertainment industry; but, equally, we cannot be the pearl without order. Central to our vision is order,” he emphasized Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting Related Items:#magneticmedianews The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provocenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp #MagneticMediaNews ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDTlast_img read more

Firefighters free man pinned under construction equipment on Highway 500

first_imgA construction worker suffered life-threatening injuries early Thursday after being pinned under a paving machine on state Highway 500, officials said.Firefighters were dispatched to the incident just before 3:30 a.m. on west Highway 500 just east of the 39th St. exit.Crews arrived a few minutes later and found a man had been backed over by a paving machine, said Kevin Stromberg, spokesman for the Vancouver Fire Department. Crews asked for assistance from the Region 4 Technical Rescue Team, which specializes in difficult extrications.Crews used a front-end loader to lift the machine off the man, who was conscious and alert the entire time, Stromberg said. Firefighters placed lumber under the lifted machine to make sure it wouldn’t fall back on the victim.“It’s a pretty extensive operation,” Stromberg said.The man, identified by Washington State Patrol as Justin Pitts, was freed by about 4:04 a.m. and sent to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Later in the day, he was transferred to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland, where he was listed in critical condition.Abbi Russell, spokeswoman for the Washington State Department of Transportation, said contractor crews last night were completing final paving work for the St. Johns interchange project. Everything was shut down immediately after the incident, she said.“Safety is our No. 1 priority,” Russell said.West Highway 500 was completely blocked until about 7 a.m., when one lane reopened to traffic. Because crews stopped working, she said there will be an abrupt edge to pavement between lanes and from some ramps from St. Johns Boulevard.last_img read more

Mysterious Sumerian tablet puzzles UAF librarians

first_imgDownload audioThe University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Rasmuson Library has a mystery on its hands. It doesn’t know when or how, but in its collection lies a Bronze Age clay tablet.(Creative Commons photo by Jimmy Emerson)Like the Maltese Falcon, the small four thousand-year-old Ancient Sumerian clay tablet is surrounded in mystery. Rasmuson Library’s Curator of Rare Books Katherine Arndt says all they know is it was in their collection in 1982.“Marvin Falk, who was hired as the first rare book curator at that time; he doesn’t know if it was in the library before then or not,” Ardnt said.Arndt says the tablet’s storage box is from a New York rare book dealer and probably dates from the early 1940s. She and her colleagues believe it was a donation, but records are missing.They do know what it says thanks to the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative. It is a receipt for a barley transaction.“It was threshed and the mill was evidently giving it back to whoever was getting it,” said Arndt.Definitely more prosaic than the Maltese Falcon. Yet the Rasmuson Library’s display from the ancient Middle East does call to mind Sam Spade’s observation: “The stuff dreams are made of.”last_img read more

Interior Secretary Sally Jewell announces inclusion of Native communities in land management

first_imgInterior Secretary Sally Jewell addressed AFN Friday. Jewell announced a new secretarial order that requires the Department to include native communities and traditional ecological knowledge in land management decisions.Listen Now The White House Tribal Nations Conference convenes leaders from the 567 federally recognized tribes to interact directly with high-level federal government officials and members of the White House Council on Native American Affairs (Photo courtesy of the Department of the Interior)“I’m announcing today a new secretarial order, which encourages collaborative agreements between Interior Department’s land managers and federally recognized tribes,” Jewell said. “The purpose is to provide guidance to our nation’s public land and water managers to make sure that when we share resources with a special geographical, historical and or cultural connection with tribes, that Natives have a meaningful and substantive role in their management.”Earlier in her talk, Jewell reviewed gains made in recent years which have brought federal managers and tribal leaders closer together in collaboration on resource issues, specifically pointing to working toward greater tribal engagement in subsistence issues.She cited an example of federal managers working with tribes in the Ahtna region on solutions to hunting pressure on moose.Jewell said her new secretarial order provides guidance to managers that native communities have a meaningful and substantive role in decisions.last_img read more

Black Caucus Seeks Meeting With Hogan on Desegregation Case

first_imgBy The Associated PressANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland has asked to meet with Gov. Larry Hogan to discuss a long-running dispute over Maryland’s treatment of its historically Black colleges.Del. Darryl Barnes, who chairs the caucus, asked for the meeting in a letter Friday. Barnes says a $100 million settlement over 10 years that Hogan proposed last year is “woefully inadequate.”Maryland HBCU’s (AFRO File Image)Shareese DeLeaver-Churchill, a Hogan spokeswoman, says the governor looks forward to a Feb. 7 meeting. She says the administration wants to conclude the case “in a way that is fair and equitable.”A federal appeals court ordered a fourth attempt at mediation in the 12-year-old dispute and set an April 30 deadline. The colleges say the state underfunded them while developing programs at traditionally White schools that drain prospective students away.last_img read more

5 Ways to Create an AlmostThere Prototype Marketing Video

first_imgAugust 12, 2016 Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Video is an incredibly powerful tool and an increasingly accessible one. Do you need a perfect works-like-looks-like prototype to create an effective video sell sheet? No, definitely not. Video is powerful in part because it’s so versatile. You can make your prototype look better on camera than it does in front of you, if you shoot it from the right angle. You can also easily obscure small defects. And, your prototype only needs to work right once on camera — or even not at all. That’s the beauty of editing. I could go on and on. My point is, shooting your video sell sheet is an excellent opportunity to get creative — and so is prototyping.To bring simple product ideas to market today, I’m a big advocate of licensing. I don’t believe in spending a lot of money, or even much money at all, on prototyping until you’ve tested the market first. Fundamentally, licensing — and by extension inventing — is a numbers game. You can’t afford to create a works-like-looks-like prototype of all of your ideas. You need to be able to work on many different projects and to pivot quickly.1. Your prototype is never what you’re selling, anyway.How your concept looks will change throughout its development, usually many times over. But the benefits of your concept never will. The prototypes you create are only as useful as they express the benefits of your idea. Of course, some ideas require proof of concept. Getting crafty will still serve you well.Related: 3 Steps to Transform Your Business Idea Into a PrototypeBack in the day, I built most of my prototypes out of paper. Paper is a forgiving, cheap medium. After studying sculpture at San Jose State and teaching myself how to design my own patterns, it was a natural fit. But that was then. So I have asked my team of inventRight coaches, who are in the trenches daily, actively trying to license their ideas. (Full disclosure: They were all my students first.)2. See what’s out there that takes you part of the way.Their first piece of advice was: Look to existing products first. Can you stitch together components of different products to cannibalize, or, in the words of OXO president Alex Lee, to ‘Frankenstein’ a physical prototype?When inventRight coach Amy Jo Brogan set out to invent a legitimately spill-proof coffee tumbler, she dug through “everything you can think of” that dispenses liquids at stores near her home, including TJ Maxx, her local grocer, the dollar store, and so on. She cut valves out of existing products and tested them at home on a rigid container, ultimately creating about five different prototypes before settling on the direction she wanted to go in. “I looked at everything. Valves vary in size, and size affects strength. It wasn’t just the valve I had to figure out,” Brogan added. “When I cut a hole in the lid, it would leak. So I had to test quite a few adhesive glues as well. It was a constant work in progress.” Brogan’s spill-proof coffee mug made its debut at the International Home + Housewares Show earlier this year.Related: 5 Tips for Creating a Prototype3. Conform to established standards, don’t buck them.InventRight coach David Fedewa used materials in his home to develop his prototype. When he set out to devise a way of keeping a can of beer colder for longer, he defined his parameters. “I wanted that last sip to taste just like the first,” he explained. The can needed to stay colder for about 20 to 30 minutes — the amount of time most people take to down a beer. He knew he didn’t want to invent anything that would significantly increase the can’s circumference, because the product might not fit standard cup holders. So he took a cupcake tin, filled one cup partly with water, pushed a can of beer on top of it, and froze the water in place, creating a can-sized frozen disk. He used the disk to test his hypothesis. Would it keep a can colder longer? It did! To create his video sell sheet, he used two prototypes: A looks-like prototype and a works-like. Swapping shots in and out gave the impression of a finished product. In 2013, Corkcicle licensed his innovation, Artican, from him.4. Prototyping materials and resources are endless.But what if you’re not handy at all, like inventRight coach Howie Busch? When Howie decided to invent a new kind of travel pillow, he sought out help. After purchasing supplies at Michaels, Jo-Anns, and Walmart, he brought his materials and a 3D rendering of his concept to his tailor. A few days later, he had inexpensive samples in hand. Busch licensed his travel pillow innovation to SNI/Cloudz, the leading travel pillow and travel accessory company in 2014. To prototype other ideas that required more engineering, he’s hired freelancers online, usually for a few hundred dollars, he said.Some of inventRight coach Terry O’Mara’s favorite materials to work with when he is fleshing out an idea for prototyping are Sculpey clay, a bake-able polymer clay, and prototyping plastic such as Thermoplastic Polyurethane pellets. Both give him a lot of flexibility in terms of malleability.Related: Need a Prototype? 3-D Printers Coming to UPS Stores5. Computer rendering and video play well together. As far as prototypes go, it’s hard to beat 3D computer renderings. They’ve just gotten so affordable. In several hours, you can hire someone to create a rendering that looks so lifelike people will wonder if they can order your product now. You can even insert your rendering into your video. Remember, there’s really no limit as to how far you can mix and match what’s real and what’s still theoretical, when it comes to video. If you can build a prototype that looks like the real deal, should you? Sure. That’s always going to be a plus. But is doing so necessary? No. Prototyping should not cost you an arm and a leg. It’s not a valid excuse for procrastination, either. If you’re waiting to contact potential licensees because your prototype isn’t finished, don’t. You’re wasting valuable time. The market is always subject to change. You need to capitalize on opportunities as they present themselves. Don’t let yourself be hamstrung by fear.  6 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Tariff increase on Chinese imports to raise input

first_img Tariff increase on Chinese imports to raise input … Turkish cherry industry eyes strong future in Chin … A proof-of-concept trial is also nearing completion in China, while production trials have begun in Oregon and California. New Zealand kiwifruit company Zespri is making strides in its strategy to supply global markets year-round, with its Northern Hemisphere harvest now well underway and delivering higher volumes. The company not only expects a lift to 19 million trays for the current campaign, but a greater proportion of the crop will be of the premium SunGold-branded variety with volumes set to be up by two-thirds at 10.5 million trays.In contrast, the volume of green Hayward kiwifruit is likely to be down by around one million trays, at a total of eight million. “This year’s Northern Hemisphere harvest is expected to exceed 19.1 million trays, which is almost 25 percent up on the 15.4 million trays recorded in 2017/18,” says Zespri chief international production officer Sheila McCann-Morrison.”Zespri is looking forward to completing the New Zealand season by the end of the year while transitioning to supply from our Northern Hemisphere locations.”McCann-Morrison said growth in Zespri’s offshore supply allowed it to meet increasing consumer demand while ensuring the brand remains top of mind during the three or four months of the year when New Zealand-grown kiwifruit is unavailable. “Ultimately, this is trying to meet the needs of our consumers and support sustainable long-term returns for our non-New Zealand and New Zealand-grown crop,” she says.Zespri has developed long-term partnerships with growers and suppliers outside New Zealand to provide Zespri kiwifruit that meets stringent quality standards in Italy, South Korea, Japan and France.Europe remains Zespri’s most significant source of non-New Zealand-grown kiwifruit, with Italy supplying more than 90% of our total volumes and more than nine million trays of SunGold.“In addition to expanding our production in current key European locations, particularly in Italy, we are running trials in new growing locations to determine whether we can successfully diversify our supply,” says McCann-Morrison.”We believe this will allow us to mitigate risks like pests and adverse weather events and also bring our supply closer to market.”Outside of Europe, Zespri expects to see continued growth in Asia and is focusing on increasing the supply of SunGold in Japan and South Korea to meet strong demand.Zespri also continues to explore the potential for a 12-month supply programme in China. A proof of concept trial in China is nearing completion, working with local partners to assess local Chinese varieties to determine whether we can sustainably grow Zespri-quality fruit.The group has also started production trials in Oregon and California in the U.S., which has become one of Zespri’s most significant new growth markets due to demand for SunGold.

Paris France – Reported by Jessica Michault for E

first_imgParis, France – Reported by Jessica Michault for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineThe concept of a jacket sans sleeves is not as ridiculous as it sounds. Indeed, this stylish summer piece has all the important elements a jacket needs: A tailored shape, lapels, buttons and even the optional shoulder pads. And when the weather heats up, you’ll quickly come around to the idea that sleeves are simply superfluous.For designer Kris Van Assche, the style was an important aspect of both his signature line and his collection for Dior Homme. In the former, he played with the idea of loosening up a classic power suit. A traditional pinstripe suit came down the catwalk without its sleeves, blending almost seamlessly into a sporty horizontal striped t-shirt. The Dior Homme show, meanwhile, featured long and short monochrome jackets—clean of any embellishment— that wrap the body at the collar to create a clerical chicness. The pieces feel like they may have a longer shelf life than just the season.Although designers paired their sleeveless jackets with both short-sleeved tops and dress shirts, the best accessory for this style are bare arms. Models showed off their guns at the Neil Barrett and Juun.J shows in sleeveless twists on the trench coat. At Walter Van Beirendonck the sleeveless styles were colorful interpretations of business jackets and came with an optional pair of totem pole-themed, upper arm-length leather gloves. Thom Browne’s version of the trend was a bit of a hybrid between a waistcoat and a dinner jacket. He softened his designs by rounding the hems of the jackets in a way that subtly echoed the roll of the model’s shoulders. The resulting pieces looked both refined and relevant to a modern man’s wardrobe. Sold on this cutting-edge trend? Be sure not to mistake a straightforward suit vest or waistcoat for a sleeveless jacket. These eye-catching jackets are cut long and tend to be blockier than a vest, and are not to be layered over. Quite the opposite, they are a final piece intended to put that finishing touch on your summer ensemble.It takes a certain amount of courage to take this trend out for a spin (not to mention a few bicep curls). But by ripping off the sleeves of sartorial staples like trench coats and suit jackets, designers have turned these conventional looks into audacious statement pieces—clothing that rebels just enough to turn the wearer into a risk taker.www.dior.comwww.juunj.comwww.krisvanassche.comwww.neilbarrett.comwww.thombrowne.comwww.waltervanbeirendonck.comlast_img read more

Final Fantasy XI and XIV, Well.actually he was that last partbut its a testament to Pratts genial charm that his Peter Quill felt like a real human being even when the movie occasionally wedged him into a capital-letters Heros Journey And this is precisely what Indiana Jones calls for: Someone with the easy charm the manly poise the authentic guy-ness of early 80s Harrison Ford Like Ford Pratts history is the story of a guy working hard to get his moment in the sunand if Pratt doesnt have anything on his résumé like Fords "I was just a carpenter man" origin myth he does have the Scooby-Doo Maui Van-House Pratt has character something a lot of equivalently aged action dudes seem to lack (Cough cough Sam Worthington cough cough Jai Courtney cough cough) That would go a long way to making a new Indiana Jones a more attractive prospectespecially considering that a Disney Jones would probably feature no Spielberg no Lucas no Ford or any of the creative people who made one great Indiana Jones movie one good Indiana Jones movie one weird Indiana Jones movie and one ungodly terrible Indiana Jones movie Bad Idea: You could frontload the argument by pointing out that part of Pratts charm is rooted in his characters simplicity But Indiana Jones is an archaeologist and a college professor: You completely believe it when Ford puts on his nerd-glasses and there is something enthralling about listening to his Indiana Jones spout historical-mythic exposition We should also remember that Han Solo and Indiana Jones arein small but pivotal waysvery different characters Part of the key to Ford-as-Solo is how he seems to be slightly ridiculing all the woozy cosmic melodrama around him ("Absolutely Your Worship") Ford-as-Indiana is funny too but hes also much more of a classical romantic hero Could Pratt do this Would he even want to There are also more general career implications here: The question of how many franchises a single man should carry The more specific question of how many Disneyfranchises a grown-up would want to carry And at least one hyper-specific-for-Chris-Pratt question: Should a Steven Spielberg franchise with one great movie and at least one terrible movie actually even get rebooted without Spielberg This article originally appeared on EWcom Contact us at editors@timecomKristen Bell might walk a red carpet with ease now but that doesn’t mean that she

a series of steps it will take to address its associations with slavery The Jesuits who founded Georgetown sold 272 slaves in 1838 and used the proceeds to pay off the university’s debts Georgetown University President John DeGioia announced the measures in response to a report from the school’s Working Group on Slavery Memory and Reconciliation which DeGioia convened in 2015 to examine Georgetown’s association with slavery and how it should respond now The descendants of those 272 people have been involved with the working group in the past year and the university today said they will get the preferential admissions status that descendants or siblings of other Georgetown students and alumni currently have "As we join the Georgetown community we must understand that part of our history is this history of slaveholding and the slave trade" said working-group chair David Collins "And that opens our eyes to broader social issues that are still unhealed in our nation History

influence in Eastern Europe In return for the latter the theory goes Russia would join the US in an alliance against ISIS work to reduce nuclear-weapon stockpiles and help constrain ChinaDonald Trump has publicly annunciated parts of such a grand bargain as have top advisers Steve Bannon and National Security Adviser Michael Flynn who was forced to resign on Feb 13 for his back-channel

quelled the appetite for a dealThose who have spoken with Trump about a grand bargain with Russia say it appeals to the businessman in him "The President really desires to do deals and he wants to be seen as someone who’s able to change the way the US approaches the world" says Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee the Republican head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee who argued against big deals with Russia in detailed conversations with Trump on Nov 29 in New York City when he was being interviewed for Secretary of State "But doing deals for deals’ sake without knowing what direction [they take us] that could be hugely harmful to our nation and to the rest of the Western world" Corker saysIt is unclear if the grand bargain was originally an American notion or one floated by Moscow

carrier a Soviet-era diesel clunker barely coughed its way back and forth to Syria over the past six months losing two planes to accidents along the way Russia has been begging the US to form an anti-ISIS alliance no strings attached and Putin has already expressed a desire in his first post-Inauguration phone call with Trump to pursue renewed arms-control measures Ceding Eastern Europe to
