A point from Aaron McGrath just before half-time cut the deficit down to two, Park-Ratheniska leading 0-08 to 1-03 at the interval.Delaney was on target with another free for Park-Ratheniska five minutes after the restart, but Patrick Walsh kept Killeshin in touch with another point to reduce the gap back down to two.Killeshin had a brilliant goal opportunity squandered soon after when Walsh broke through Park-Ratheniska’s defence, Cranny in goal making a brilliant save, and a spectacular long-range effort from Brian Fingleton making it’s way over the bar extended their lead to three once again.Two minutes later, a shot from Walsh from the twenty-one flew into the bottom right corner past Cranny, to bring it back to a level game once again entering the final quarter.Podge Dunne put Park-Ratheniska back in the lead four minutes later, but two points from Walsh in quick succession, including a phenomenal long-range effort out from the sideline put Killeshin in front with five minutes remaining.O’Connell was on target again with another free to bring the sides back level once again, and Park-Ratheniska could’ve extended that lead to three in the last minute of normal time when Paddy Kelly pounced on a loose ball, but Whelan again descended quickly off his line to block the shot.O’Callaghan hit the resulting 45′ to the left and wide, and Killeshin had a chance to win it with the last kick of the game, when Gerard Kelly went for another long-range shot, which dropped short into Cranny’s arms to end it in a draw.SCORERS – Killeshin: Patrick Walsh 1-3, Leeson Hughes 1-0, Niall Brennan 0-1, Cathal Byrne 0-1, Aaron McGrath 0-1 Park-Ratheniska: DJ O’Connell 0-4 (three frees), Brian Fingleton 0-3, Kieran Delaney 0-2, Cathal Óg Greene 0-1, Podge Dunne 0-1, Brian Dunne 0-1KILLESHIN: Shane Whelan; Stephen Moran, Adam Brennan, Alan Davis; Niall Brennan, Kevin Brennan, Cathal Byrne; Eddie Hand, Aaron McGrath; Owen Scully, Gerard Kelly, Colin Dunne; Liam Doran, Patrick Walsh, Leeson Hughes.

Students Attend Development Seminar in Mandeville

first_imgRelatedStudents Attend Development Seminar in Mandeville RelatedStudents Attend Development Seminar in Mandeville Advertisements Students Attend Development Seminar in Mandeville UncategorizedFebruary 28, 2007center_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Students from schools and colleges in the parishes of Manchester and St. Elizabeth attended a development seminar at the Anglican Church Hall in Mandeville on February 27.The seminar was sponsored by members of the All Professional Training Service (APTS).In her address at the opening, Minister of Education and Youth, Maxine Henry Wilson encouraged the students to be aware of the importance of professional service, as this would lead to positive results and enable them to compete in the global market.“Service has international standards now. It’s not what you and I want to do in our little community that is going to cut it,” she insisted, adding that persons would have “to log on to international standards, to speak an international language and to communicate in that language”.The Minister explained that in transforming the education system, young people are being given a chance to be on the cutting edge. “When we talk about education and being a part of the system, we are not just talking about what happens in the classroom, but about forming the whole person,” she added.Mrs. Henry Wilson argued that creating the whole person would include the involvement of institutions which could provide students with the knowledge and skills in becoming professional service providers.“We say Jamaica is beautiful, but it’s not just beauty that persons come to a country for.they come for service. If someone goes into a hotel and the service is poor he or she may never go back to that country,” she said.Meanwhile, organizer of the seminar, Sonia Brown said its purpose was to bring awareness to students on how to function in various organizations.“The theme of the seminar is ‘Quality Service – Our Future’. We want to prepare them, to mold and groom them into the future of work, where they are expected to perform and deliver the quality service that the customer demands,” she said.Among the presenters at the seminar were Shawna Housen of the Jamaica Tourist Board and Grace Mullings of the HEART Trust/NTA, who spoke about the ‘Importance of Service in the Tourism Industry’ and ‘Quality Customer Care’, respectively.The APTS was formed in 1995 with the aim of developing staff in various organizations to provide better service to customers and their respective companies, and also assist with the fostering of good relationships among management, workers and their customers.

ODPEM Strengthening Earthquake Preparedness and Response Capacities

first_imgODPEM Strengthening Earthquake Preparedness and Response Capacities UncategorizedJanuary 13, 2008 RelatedODPEM Strengthening Earthquake Preparedness and Response Capacities RelatedODPEM Strengthening Earthquake Preparedness and Response Capacities RelatedODPEM Strengthening Earthquake Preparedness and Response Capacitiescenter_img Advertisements FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) is strengthening its preparedness and response capacities in the event of a major earthquake.Director General of the agency, Ronald Jackson, who was addressing a press conference on (Jan.11) at ODPEM’s Camp Road offices to launch Earthquake Awareness Week, said that the agency has been partnering with a number of international and regional agencies, and “we will be continuing our search and rescue capacity building, which we started two years ago and the training will continue”.Stating that “we are also currently in discussions with the German Embassy here to carry out canine rescue training,” he explained that “in the event a collapsed structure, the greatest chance for survival is to be able to sense where bodies are located and we are hoping to get that off the ground towards the end of this year.”The ODPEM is also working to enhance the national capacity to provide shelter and relief support for massive displacement, Mr. Jackson informed.He told journalists that there are plans to finalise a national building code. “Kingston is already dense and populated in terms of its buildings, some of which may very well have been constructed to the capacity to withstand certain ground acceleration, others may not,” he pointed out.The Director General indicated that as part of the development approval process, the agency will be developing multi-hazard maps, including that of earthquakes, and providing training in mass casualty.In relation to tsunamis, Mr. Jackson said that in the event that one occurs, a good communication system must be in place.“In that regard, we are working with our communication partners and others to see if we can institute a means of texting as a system of early warning. So we are seeking to address a number of the areas,” he noted.Earthquake Awareness Week is being observed from January 13 to 19 under the theme: ‘For safety sake, be ready for the next earthquake’.Activities include earthquake drills and presentations, as well as expositions in communities islandwide. The week will commence with a special service at the St. Andrew Parish Church, which has existed since 1655, and has withstood numerous catastrophic events, including earthquakes.The week of activities are being planned in conjunction with the Parish Councils, the Ministry of Education and the Jamaica Library Service, as well as businesses, civic and community-based organizations.last_img read more

COVID-19 information about new virus variant

first_imgCOVID-19 information about new virus variant Main pointsData from Whole Genome Sequencing, epidemiology and modelling suggest the new variant ‘VUI – 202012/01’ (the first Variant Under Investigation in December 2020) transmits more easily than other strains.We currently have no evidence that the variant is more likely to cause severe disease or mortality – but we are continuing investigations to understand this better.The way to control this virus is the same, whatever the variant. It will not spread if we avoid close contact with others. Wash your hands, wear a mask, keep your distance from others, and reduce your social contacts.Is there any evidence that the variant is more serious?We currently have no evidence that this variant causes more severe disease or higher mortality – but we continue to study cases to understand this better. We know that mortality is a lagging indicator and we will need to continually monitor this over the coming weeks.Why is this more transmissible?We know that mutations in the spike protein, the part of the virus that makes it infectious, can change how the virus interacts with human cells. However, we do not yet know the mechanism for this increase in transmission.The evidence shows that infection rates in geographical areas where this particular strain has been circulating have increased faster than expected, and the modelling evidence has demonstrated that this variant has a higher transmission rate than other variants in current circulation.How long has this variant been in circulation?All viruses mutate over time and new variants emerge regularly.Backwards tracing using the genetic evidence suggests this variant emerged in September 2020 and then circulated at very low levels in the population until mid-November.The increase in cases linked to the new variant first came to light in late November when PHE was investigating why infection rates in Kent were not falling despite national restrictions. We then discovered a cluster linked to this variant spreading rapidly into London and Essex.Evidence of increased transmissibility was provided to NERVTAG and ministers on December 18.Is this strain resistant to the Pfizer vaccine?There is currently no evidence to suggest that the Pfizer vaccine would not protect people against the new strain.Further laboratory work is currently being undertaken as a priority to understand this.How widespread is the variant geographically?144 Lower Tier Local Authorities have identified at least 1 case genomically, although the vast majority of cases identified are in London, the South East and the East of England.Can tests detect this new variant?Labs have been issued with guidance to adapt processes to ensure that PCR tests can detect this variant.PCR tests can be adapted rapidly to respond to the new variant. /Public Release.

Dr Bianca Beetson wins Kinetic art competition

first_imgDr Bianca Beetson wins Kinetic art competition Kabi Kabi/Gubbi Gubbi (Sunshine Coast) Wiradjuri (NSW) woman, Dr Bianca Beetson has been named as the winner of Dubbo Regional Council’s (DRC’s) Kinetic Art competition – a nationwide search to find an Indigenous artist with a strong connection to the Wiradjuri nation to design one of the largest public art piece in regional New South Wales. Dr Beetson is a visual artist who works in a diverse range of media including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography and public art.“I identify as Wiradjuri and have family connections to the Dubbo Indigenous community through the Beetson/Majick family lines. I also have family living in Wellington who are descendants of my Great Aunty Topsy Taylor. I see this as an opportunity to reconnect to country and develop ongoing reciprocal relationships with the Wiradjuri community,” said Dr Beetson.All artists were required to adhere to a theme of community, country, connection: finding common ground, and through her winning concept, Dr Beetson says she contemplated the process of asking permission to enter Country. Her proposed work uses imagery expressive of Country, cultural knowledge and communities. The unique design was developed through Cyanotyping, a process using sun – the giver of life – to develop the image. Using kangaroo grass seeds, which are native seeds that grow along the three Dubbo rivers, Dr Beetson created a pattern representative of a river.“The river represents the Wiradjuri people and the communities connected to and by the three rivers and its tributaries. The river also being a giver to life to the community and the central life blood of the community. Without the water, we would not survive,” said Dr Beetson.Dr Beetson’s art will be displayed on the side of the Telstra Exchange building, which will be located in the Old Dubbo Gaol Heritage Plaza. UAP has been engaged by DRC to help with construction and installation of the artwork.DRC’s Cultural Development Coordinator Jessica Moore says Dr Beetson’s work is a great representation of community coming together, after a strong field of applicants initially applied for the paid opportunity.“We were very excited to have 25 submissions come in for this competition. Through our assessment process we reduced that to three really strong contenders and each artwork was very unique and very distinctive and very different from each other, so it made the final selection process really challenging, but also really exciting,” said Ms Moore.The project has been funded by the NSW Government’s Regional Growth Environment and Tourism fund, with a budget of $5 million for the Old Dubbo Heritage Plaza development. It’s part of the overall Destination Dubbo: International Ready project, which the NSW Government provided $10 million in funding.“I want to thank all the people who took part, for me it was a really enjoyable process and Bianca Beetson, I thought was an outstanding candidate from the very first time I saw some of her vision, and there were some other fantastic candidates as well, but Bianca I think took a very unique and special look at what we have around this region,” said Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders. /Public Release.

This is for those who have dropped out of school, and for others who don’t have enough skills to go on to university. We hope to be the agents of change that can take them from where they are to a level where they can now get a skill and go to university,” she said.Training will be provided at the laboratory, in conjunction with facilitators from the HEART Trust/NTA.Manager at the Black River-based HEART Vocational Training Centre, Delmarie Rowe-Lewis, said the new facility will provide training for persons who need it.“We want to ensure that our citizens are fully literate, and computer literate. We are in a global society driven by technology, so we embrace this vision with the Women’s Group and look forward to its success,” Mrs. Rowe-Lewis said.Manager of the St. Elizabeth office of the Social Development Commission (SDC), Sandra Gray-Emanuel said that, “this is part of our vision to ensure that every community has access to facilities such as this one. It also speaks to an attendant vision of empowering our citizenry, hence we laud the work of the Women’s Group, as they have added to the infrastructure of this community”.“This we believe will result in our nation moving forward – the concept of a Jamaica as a place of choice to live, work, raise families and do business,” the Manager said.Young member of the Women’s Group, Debbian James, said the computer laboratory “is a great project for the Treasure Beach community”.“It is an opportunity for persons to improve on their computer literacy skills, and for the entire community to have access to computer training,” she added.Managing Director of the UAF, Hugh Cross, highlighted the benefits of access to the Internet, as such access facilitates business development in its widest sense, and reduces energy and transportation costs.“It improves communication, both locally and world-wide; dramatically expands and enhances educational options, improves customer services, and generally improves the quality of life within the country,” he added.last_img read more

Energy Conservation must become a way of life

first_imgAdvertisements RelatedEnergy Conservation must become a way of life RelatedEnergy Conservation must become a way of life FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Acting Group Managing Director of the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ), Nigel Logan is calling on Jamaicans to adopt energy conservation and efficiency as a way of life instead of a knee-jerk reaction to surges in energy prices. Mr. Logan noted that as the country moves to reduce its dependence on oil through the development of its renewable energy capabilities and the eventual transition to natural gas, Jamaicans can offer themselves some protection against increases in oil prices by incorporating energy efficient technologies and practices in every aspect of their lives. “While the latest surge in energy prices is likely to cause some pain, there are things that we can do in the short term to temper the effects. We have to reduce our energy use and what we do use, we must make sure to use it more efficiently. The current situation has more than a feeling of d`eja? vu and what we must ensure is that as a country and individuals, we do things to prepare ourselves so that we are less vulnerable”, he explained. As part of this preparation Mr. Logan is encouraging the public to participate in the PCJ’s Energy Seminar Series which will have its second staging on Wednesday March 16, at the PCJ Auditorium commencing at 5:30 p.m. Admission is free. The seminar will also be streamed live at www.pcj.com and will focus on: ·        Light-emitting Diode (LED) Lighting Technologies ·        Induction Lighting ·        The Ministry of Energy and Mining’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Programme The mandate of the PCJ is to undertake the development and promotion of Jamaica’s energy resources in a manner that is beneficial to the country and protects the environment. On Thursday March 3, 2011 the PCJ hosted the first in its series of energy seminars which saw a turnout of approximately 80 persons. Under the theme “Jamaica’s Energy Future” the PCJ will host a number of seminars in Kingston and other parishes throughout the year to foster informed public discussion on energy related issues.
