We are a new group of players and it will take time, but hopefully it will click soon. I hope the fans will understand the situation and I think they do.“It’s important that they are supportive in every single game and keep believing in the team, because this group of players really has something quite good in terms of quality and, with a little more work, we will see the effects on the pitch.”The Hammers will now meet Fabianski’s former club Arsenal at the Emirates this Saturday.last_img read more

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppMONTEGO BAY, Sept. 8 (JIS):Labour and Social Security Minister, Hon. Derrick Kellier, is advising persons, who feel that they have been unjustly denied access to, or removed from the Programme for Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH), to make a report to the appeals committee in each parish. Mr. Kellier, who was speaking during a tour of the Ministry’s Hanover parish office on Friday (September 5), said persons have been complaining that they are not on the PATH list, or that they have been taken off for various reasons.“What I want the public to know is that in every parish, there exists an appeals committee and if for any reason, you have been unjustly removed from the programme or you have not been given access to the programme, make an appeal…so that your case can be revisited,” he stated. He also urged the officers to help dispel “this belief that persons with fridges, stoves and televisions in their houses are not eligible (for PATH)…it’s not true.”Minister Kellier also reiterated his call for PATH beneficiaries to honour their obligations to the programme, including ensuring that children regularly attend school and clinic.“The children must go to the clinic…and they must go to school at a minimum of 85 per cent of the designated school time…otherwise they will find themselves being removed from the programme,” he noted.PATH has an annual budget of over $4 billion and the stipulations must be met as the Government is compelled to make reports to the multi-nationals that fund the programme.Minister Kellier said the Government continues to receive rave reviews from its Caribbean counterparts for its handling of the PATH programme. “The PATH initiative is the flagship poverty (reduction) programme of the Government and it is the best run programme in the entire Caribbean when it comes to social protection. Other governments are sending their representatives here to learn from us about how we run this programme because the international agencies have confirmed that Jamaica has one of the best run social protection programmes,” he said. – 30 –CONTACT: MARLON TINGLING JIS REGIONAL OFFICE MONTEGO BAYlast_img read more

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 13 Aug 2015 – During that meeting where the public was invited to give their comments on the idea of a 12 or 14 storey resort development along Grace Bay, Premier Rufus Ewing agreed that his administration must ensure that TC Islanders are not left out of job and business opportunities. Though the meeting was led by Finance and Investment Minister, Washington Misick, the country’s leader and former Tourism chief shared that it is a factor under serious consideration but a firm policy that he and his team have not yet devised. Some natives said they are not anti-development but they are vexed at seeing Grace Bay developers be the biggest or the only winners when these projects are launched. The Premier was challenged to change the narrative so that more and more Turks and Caicos people could more directly profit from the vacation investments within the country. The Administration was also slammed for having already made up its mind about the project; some felt the gathering and petition for comments was a sham. One person attending the meeting and speaking out also called on the PNP Administration to hold a town meeting to deal specifically with these issues of empowerment of Belongers; and turned his attention to the expatriate community in the Gus Lightbourne Gym for that public meeting; demanding that they turn up in the same strong numbers when the talk turns to Turks and Caicos Islanders benefiting from more significantly tourism.

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 16 Nov 2015 – Owners of the Tuscany and Venetian resort condos on Grace Bay filed a complaint about the proposed 12-storey development planned for next door to their properties, and today a judgment was handed down giving them victory in the case. Chief Justice Margaret Ramsay Hale agreed with the argument put forth by Tuscany and Venetian and ruled for their legal costs to be covered by respondents in the case and stated in the ruling that there was a breach. Those respondents are: The Governor, the Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Planning and the Director of Planning. From the judgment the case was won by the Venetian and the Tuscany owners because there was insufficient public consultation and the applicants challenged the authority of Cabinet or Planning Department to alter the planning ordinance in the way that they did. In her grounds for the ruling, the CJ says while the Director of Planning and the Minister, who is in this case Hon Amanda Misick are given certain authorities, those need to be thoroughly executed by ensuring among other things that people who will be impacted by the proposed zoning changes are informed and given opportunity to make representation before any plan is submitted and approved by the Governor. This proper process, according to Ramsay-Hale, did not happen. When it comes to the consultation on this zoning change to go with taller buildings in Provo, the Chief Justice outlines that the consultation must come at a point when there is an opportunity to influence the proposal and not when the decision has already been made. The town hall meeting held by the PNP Administration was described as a ‘sham’ by attendees as it appeared the plan was already approved before having public input. The case today determined that a notice by the Department of Planning to amend the Development Manual to make the 12 story or 150-ft height legal was rescinded and called ‘void’ and of ‘no effect’ by the Chief Justice in her ruling. Magnetic Media has sought to get reaction to the decision handed down just hours ago; there was no reply up to news production time.

One student group upended the term, “Founding Fathers” with a homage to the women of the American Revolution.The education program was developed for high school history students attending Title I schools, which are schools with a large number of students who come from low income families.
