Happy return! – JAAA, JOA pleased with Rio medal haul

first_img “I think Jamaica has everything to be proud of. We did fairly well. We came 16th overall on the Olympic medal table, which is taking all sports into account, and that all the medals came from a single sport. This is really a tremendous achievement,” Blake continued, in an interview with The Gleaner. With regard to track and field (athletics), Jamaica placed third overall, a feat which the JAAA boss calls “a remarkable achievement for a country so small”. Prior to the Olympics, the JAAA came in for some criticism regarding medical exemptions to athletes like triple Olympic champion Usain Bolt in the 100 and 200m at the national trials, double sprint Olympic champion Elaine Thompson in the 200m, and Janieve Russell in the 400m hurdles, but Blake says his organisation feels vindicated. “Jamaica is a small country and we cannot behave like the United States of America, where it’s first three past the post on the day,” he stressed. “We saw the need to put in place a situation that would allow for such a medical exemption, and the results have vindicated us,” he outlined, while crediting the coaching staff, technical team, medical teams, masseurs, who “all pulled together to make this one of our most successful Olympics ever”. In the meantime, Fennell says Jamaica had their disappointments like any other country, but noted that the overall medal haul was “excellent”. “Very satisfactory. We had our disappointments like every team. We are not the only one with disappointments. The US probably had more disappointments than anybody else, but we had our own disappointments. But overall, it was excellent,” the veteran administrator noted. He believes Jamaica gave the Rio Games a big boost. “Yes, it did, as did other teams too, because remember, we were big in one sport, but there were 27 other sports. Swimming was pretty big and many of the other sports, but of course, athletics is our flagship,” Fennell added. Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) President Dr Warren Blake, while admitting local “medal hopefuls might have wanted more Olympic medals” from the 73-member team, feels Jamaica “did fairly well” in placing 16th overall on the Olympic medal table. Blake, along with Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA) President Michael Fennell and other administrators, team personnel and athletes, arrived at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston yesterday from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Jamaica racked up 11 medals, equalling their highest haul – inclusive of six gold, three silver and two bronze in athletics competition. “It’s quite good; the hopefuls among us were hoping for a few more medals, but there are many nations who went away empt-handed,” said Blake yesterday.

Ellen Annuls UL Tuition Hike

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has promised the over 25,000 students at the University of Liberia (UL) of her government’s commitment to keeping the tuition at L$175 per credit hour.She assured the students that “not even a dime will be added on the fees per course as is being reportedly proposed by the authorities of the state run university.”The President made the commitment to the students when she paid a brief visit to the main campus of the nation’s premier institution on Capitol Hill in Monrovia on Friday.“I have never been told or informed about any increment at the university by its authorities,” the Visitor to the UL told the students to a round of applause.The president’s statement comes against the backdrop of several threats that continue to come from UL students that they will resist any increment in fees.The UL authorities have planned to increase the tuition from L$175 to US$5 per credit hour; a move that enraged the student body, many of whom are underprivileged and self-supported.President Sirleaf, who upon arrival at the campus, met with vice president for UL relations, Norris Tweh, told the students that if there should be any increment, it will be on a steady or incremental basis rather than the “astronomical jump” that the administration had intended to introduce.She then urged the students to shun violence, which frequently hampers learning activities at the university. UL has a history of violent student protests that have caused frequent interruptions in normal academic activities.She told the students that they should be aware that what is being paid at the UL is very small compared to other state run universities in the sub-region, and as such, they should take advantage of that to pay attention to their education rather than constantly demonstrating for little or no reason.The students, through the Chairman of the Student Unification Party (SUP) Nathan Kpao, earlier told President Sirleaf that they were not prepared to accept increment in tuition fees, and therefore begged the President to intervene in the situation and ensure that it does not happen.They also spoke of the dilapidated state of infrastructures at the university, especially the unpainted buildings, leaking classrooms and lack of laboratories for students, especially those in the department of sciences.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

$700M Kato Secondary School commissioned

first_imgThe Government has spent in excess of $700 million to facilitate construction works at the Kato Secondary School in Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni). This was revealed on Friday when the Education Ministry commissioned the building, which has been in construction for several years.The Ministry informed that the tender process for the project was completed since December 2012, and a contract in excess of $728 million for construction of the building was later signed.In addition, $55 million was spent to furnish the building, while $37 million was expended to facilitate installation of the photovoltaic system at the school.Some 295 students, 11 teachers and 30 support staff members will now benefit at the Grade B school, the compound of which features several buildings, including an administrative building; a student dormitory with dining facilities; a teachers’ quarters; the main teaching block; a library; science and information technology labs; a smart classroom, as well as the Home Economics and Industrial Arts departments.The newly commissioned Kato Secondary SchoolIn attendance at the commissioning were Education Minister Nicolette Henry, Public Telecommunications Minister Catherine Hughes, and Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan.In delivering the feature address, Minister Henry said she was delighted that the school was finally finished and commissioned. She said that the completion of the structure can only improve the quality of life for that community, since quality education would now be provided in a modern space.She noted that the event is a testimony to the fact that the Ministry is serious about reducing the disparity that exists between the coastland and the hinterland.Meanwhile, Permanent Secretary of the Education Ministry, Adele Clarke, explained that the Ministry, in 2010, recognised the need for an additional secondary school in Sub-Region One, since there was overcrowding at the Paramakatoi Secondary School at the time. According to her, it was this that birthed the idea of having a new school in the North Pakaraimas area.She pointed out that initially there was a strong debate as to where the new school should be located, and Kato became the preferred option.Chief Education Officer (CEO) Marcel Hutson told the gathering that the occasion was a significant one, as a state-of-the-art school has been built in the hinterland community to serve the nation’s children.According to him, education is both a necessity and an investment which everyone should embrace with the seriousness that it deserves.Moreover, he noted that the era wherein education is acquired or delivered in crowded and stressful classrooms is becoming an issue of the past.He said the Ministry has taken a firm stand in ensuring that its policy on education as a top priority is fulfilled with the provision of proper infrastructure and sound curricular.last_img read more

Melamine added to pet food deliberately?

first_img“Melamine was found in all three of those – it would certainly lend credibility to the theory that it may be intentional. That will be one of the theories we will pursue when we get into the plants in China,” Stephen Sundlof, the FDA’s chief veterinarian, told reporters. Chinese authorities have told the FDA that the wheat gluten was an industrial product not meant for pet food, Sundlof said. Still, melamine can skew test results to make a product appear more protein-rich than it really is, he added. That raises the possibility the contamination was deliberate. “What we expect to do with our inspections in China will answer some of those questions,” said Michael Rogers, director of the division of field investigations within the FDA’s office of regulatory affairs. Wilbur-Ellis Co., the U.S. importer of the tainted rice protein, said Thursday that it was recalling all the ingredient it had distributed to five U.S. pet food manufacturers. The San Francisco company in turn urged its customers to recall any products that might be on store shelves. WASHINGTON – Imported ingredients used in recalled pet food may have been intentionally “spiked” with an industrial chemical to boost their apparent protein content, federal officials said Thursday. That’s one theory being pursued by the Food and Drug Administration as it investigates how the chemical, melamine, contaminated at least two ingredients used to make more than 100 brands of dog and cat foods. So far, melamine has been found in both wheat gluten and rice protein concentrate imported from China. Media reports from South Africa suggest that a third pet food ingredient, corn gluten, used in that country also was contaminated with melamine. That tainted ingredient has not been found in the United States, the FDA said. FDA investigators, meanwhile, are awaiting visas that would allow them to visit the Chinese plants where the vegetable protein ingredients were produced. So far, just two of those companies have done so: Natural Balance Pet Foods and Blue Buffalo Co. Natural Balance, of Pacoima, announced a limited recall Monday of its Venison and Brown Rice canned and bagged dog foods, Venison and Brown Rice dog treats and Venison and Green Pea dry cat food. Blue Buffalo, of Wilton, Conn., followed Thursday by recalling 5,044 bags of its Spa Select Kitten dry food. The company intercepted most of the kitten food before it reached distribution centers, company co-founder Billy Bishop said. FDA officials would not release the names of the other two manufacturers that Wilbur-Ellis supplied, citing its ongoing investigation. The FDA and Agriculture Department also were investigating whether some pet food made by one of the five companies supplied by Wilbur-Ellis was diverted for use as hog feed after it was found unsuitable for pet consumption. “We understand it did make it into some hog feed and we are following up on that as well,” Sundlof said. The FDA could not provide updated numbers of pet deaths or injuries due to the contaminated pet food. The agency has received more than 15,000 calls since the first recall was announced more than a month ago.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Economic downturn impacts local rental properties

first_imgHowever, she also believes they’re not the only reason, and she also notes is this not first time this area has experienced and survived the downside of boom and bust economics.She cautioned that in terms of specifics her comments apply only to her clients and tenants.Powell described herself ‘a glass half full kind of person,’ and asked for her thoughts on what lies ahead for the local economy, she said. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Among the local area consequences of the economic downturn has been a sharp rise in Fort St. John’s rental property vacancy rates.Lita Powell is one of the owners of the Li-Car Management Group, the property and strata management company formed in 1990.A long time Fort St. John resident, she has 43 years of experience behind her analysis and views of the current situation, and among other things, notes there are some in this area who have already been out of work for over a year.- Advertisement -Powell then focus on the rental property vacancy rate.So that led the discussion to the reasons for the high level of construction, which preceded the oversupply of rental units, and then eventually to our initial story motivation: tenant rental incentives.Lita believes however, there’s more to this part of the story than just the oil and gas industry woes, and she’s been in the area long enough to put a deja vu label on it.Advertisementlast_img read more

Not eating doesn’t mean not hungry

first_img“His parents subscribed to the `he will eat when he’s hungry’ theory and did not call the pediatrician until it was almost too late.” Examples of when to see a health-care professional: If the child has consistently refused most food for more than a week and exhibits such symptoms as lethargy or extreme paleness. Some tips from parents: Keep a food diary. If your child is not developing typical eating habits, talk to your pediatrician or family physician and a nutritionist. Seek early intervention services, such as speech therapy and occupational therapy. As needed, consult with a pediatric gastroenterologist, allergist and developmental pediatrician. Can you help? Q. “My granddaughter is in kindergarten and seems to get so frustrated easily. Her parents have noticed it for more than a year. They do not put pressure on her to perform; she puts the pressure on herself. For example, at a mini-golf game, the ball did not go where she wanted it to go, so she tossed the club down.” – A GRANDMOTHER IN MEMPHIS, TENN. Betsy Flagler, a journalist based in Davidson, N.C., teaches preschool and is the mother of a teenage son.

But she only gained 1 pound in about six months.” Now 4, the girl has been diagnosed with a disorder on the wide spectrum of autism. “The specialist said that her not eating was a sensory issue. That accounted for her not liking a bottle as well,” the grandmother says. Another reader, who works for a pediatrician, says a strong-willed toddler, especially one being fed a vegetarian or vegan diet, can override hunger signals if not offered foods palatable to him or her. She e-mailed this response: “Usually I am in agreement with your advice, but not the column about the 17-month-old who wouldn’t eat well. Your advice to `relax, the toddler will eat when he’s hungry,’ is not always true, and the consequences for such children can be severe. “One of our patients, a toddler, recently spent a week in the hospital with severe anemia and malnutrition, caused by his refusal to eat starting about six weeks prior to his hospitalization. Q uestion: “Your recent column regarding the 17-month-old boy who wasn’t eating solids well raised concerns for me. My son had a difficult time transitioning to solid food because the textures bothered him. An occupational therapist is essential in determining whether this child is truly not hungry or he needs professional help.” – A MOTHER IN ATLANTA Answer: The mother from Atlanta is among parents who say their toddlers will not eat because they have sensory issues with food. Not just textures, but certain smells and colors are revolting to them. Feeding issues can be linked to other disorders. Research shows that children who have disorders related to autism often have difficulties eating different textures of food. Autism helped explain why a girl in Fuquay Varina, N.C., resisted food. last_img

Bike to Work Day offers transit options

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinals“I would have liked to see more people participating for health and other reasons, but it takes a lot of sacrifice and pre-planning to do this,” said Whittier Assistant City Manager Nancy Mendez. “Hopefully, we can continue to build on it and get more people to fit it into their schedule from time to time.” The four who biked to work in Whittier said it was a great experience and they would do it again. Included among the four was a community services supervisor who competes in “ironman” competitions and three working mothers. “I enjoyed being on my own, able to think and enjoy the birds and trees,” said Regina Zuniga, who cycled from her Hacienda Heights home to Whittier. “It also showed my three girls, who were impressed that mom was riding a bike to work, and that there are other means of transportation.” “I pay $70 a week for gas for my SUV, so I may consider doing this again at least a couple of days a week,” added Greg Alaniz, the ironman competitor, who pedaled from the Montebello YMCA to Whittier City Hall. The day was organized by the California Bicycle Coalition and regional groups to promote environmental conservation, alternative transportation and gas savings. WHITTIER – Whittier City officials tried to get employees to ride their bikes to work on Thursday’s Bike to Work Day, but not even high gas prices got very many out of their cars. Only four out of 100 employees who work at Whittier City Hall chose to ride their bikes to the office. In Santa Fe Springs, 13 city employees pedaled to work, said Steve Masura, redevelopment manager. The four bikers in Whittier were awarded certificates for coffee at a local coffee shop and, in Santa Fe Springs, they were presented T-shirts, free water bottles and certificates for snacks. It reportedly met with more success in other parts of Los Angeles County than in the Whittier area. An average of about 50 cyclists pulled over at each of the 14 MTA “pit stops” in cities including Los Angeles, Long Beach, Santa Monica and Arcadia, said Paula Carvajal, a project manager for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the promoter of the event in the county. Pledges on the MTA’s Web site, for riders to get free bicycle patch kits and win prizes, were also up from 2,000 in 2005 to 3,000 this year, she added. Additional incentives to cycle to work were free rides on several county bus lines including Norwalk Transit, Montebello Bus Lines, Metro Bus and Metro Rail. The number of cyclists who boarded buses for a free ride was not available on Thursday. In other parts of the state, the number of cyclists was up from last year, said K.C. Butler, executive director of the California Bicycle Coalition. Organizers said they are hoping for a big turnout today for San Diego’s Bike to Work Day. In the future, the coalition hopes to introduce more cycling events to get people interested in alternative forms of transportation, said Butler. “We hope to keep increasing cyclists every year, not just on Bike to Work Day but every day,” he said. debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
