Dr. Fenton Ferguson, is calling on all Jamaicans to come together and designate a day to undertake community clean-up activities. He pointed out that the Aedes Aegypti mosquito, which transmit the Chikungunya virus, breeds in and around areas where people gather, so the school, home, church and business places should be a part of this clean-up.“I urge Parliamentarians to lead their constituents in this drive,” Dr. Ferguson said.Speaking in the House of Representatives, today (September 17), the Minister also called on Members of Parliament (MPs) to engage in constructive discussion about the Chikungunya virus.“I must caution persons to be careful with the discourse, as the misinformation being spread in some quarters is not in the best interest of the public and can only be detrimental to efforts to secure public health,” Dr. Ferguson said.He informed that as of September 16, there was seven affected parishes with the disease, as the Caribbean Public Health Agency has confirmed one case from St. Mary and three from Portland. The other parishes are Kingston, St. Andrew, St. Catherine, St. Ann and St. Thomas.The Minister noted that up to the week ending September 13, there were 524 notifications of which 251 were classified as suspected cases. He added that as of September 16, 31 cases were laboratory confirmed, with 26 being discharged due to negative results and 194 cases remain suspected.So far, Kingston and St. Andrew and St. Thomas seem to be the areas with the most cases, he added. Dr. Ferguson informed that he has visited Nutts River in Eastern St. Thomas as well as the Yallahs Primary School, where it was reported that a number of students and teachers were displaying flu like symptoms.“I expressed my sympathies and assured the leadership of the school that we will continue to work closely with them through the St. Thomas Health Department, which has visited the institution four times since August 25,” the Minister said.

CHURCHES HAVE A CHOICE TO REGISTER SAYS FSC COMPLIANCE

In this case the Companies Amendment Ordinance requires a Non Profit company to elect to “Continue” as a Non-profit Company. To do this requires certain changes to the Memorandum and Articles of Association as well as changing the name to have, instead of Ltd, a suffix – one of Incorporated, Inc, Corporation or Corp. For this process the Registrar of Companies charges a flat fee of $200.00.” But that flat fee does not include the attorney’s fees to do this work, that amount varies. Magnetic Media in its interviews on this story found that some churches are paying as much as $1,500 in total – not only to the FSC – but to the government and to the law firms that are being hired. Paul Coleman, who heads the Compliance Unit is saying there is a lot of misinformation about this process; a process which has been delayed over a year due to the requests and battles with non-profit organizations which claimed not to have enough time to get with this new programme. The legislative side of the FSC falls under the governor of the country and one church pastor told Magnetic Media, the country’s elected leaders should do a better job of defending entities like the church from the Policy which some find intrusive and as one preacher put it, ‘a tax on Jesus.’ Nonetheless, the same church pastor explained there are residents who embrace this documented level of transparency and accountability. The churches in the country which fall into the category of being an NPO or a registered TCI company have until February 20th to comply; that is the same date for charities and other organizations under the new law. last_img read more

Power Of Prayer

I began to see some of those prayers being answered and began jotting them down,” she told JIS News. After much prompting from her family, she began compiling the testimonies for publication. Mrs. Harvey said that most of the stories written are about situations which occurred during the 1970s when she got married and started raising her family.However, she noted that not all prayers are answered. “Sometimes it is not that the prayer is not answered, but the answer you are looking for might not be forthcoming. You learn that God answers prayers generally in three ways, He either says yes, He either says no, or He says wait,” she explained.The trained teacher turned preacher further noted that most of her prayers were fulfilled because she took action based on what the Lord instructed her to do. “So, I would have to say that the Lord gave me the answers,” she added.Mrs. Harvey, who serves as a Bible teacher, counsellor and preacher at the Emanuel Apostolic Church in Portmore, hopes that the book will inspire Jamaicans and help them to understand the power of effective prayers.“I would like persons to be inspired by my stories and to understand that God is real; He answers prayers and is concerned with everything that concerns us,” she said.Minister Harvey named her testimony, ‘Sleeping Snipers’, in the book as one of her most “profound” experiences. Other stories are: ‘Money From an Empty Bag’, ‘God’s Choice for Prime Minister’, ‘Business Class Travel’, ‘Gun in Hand’, ‘Meningitis Healed’, and ‘Angry and Dangerous’.last_img read more

Ministry of Finance Response to Moodys Investors Services Credit Rating Decision of

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, August 28, 2017 – Nassau – Today, Moody’s Investor Services confirmed The Bahamas’ Baa3 credit rating—after initiating a review for downgrade on 6 July, 2017.    Moody’s also left unchanged most of the risk ceilings for The Bahamas’ long-term and short-term financial obligations.In justifying its decision, the rating agency highlighted the positive prospects of the Government’s fiscal consolidation programme for debt stabilization; consistency in The Bahamas’ credit profile with other Baa3 rated-peers; and the limited liquidity pressures, despite higher borrowing requirements.   However, Moody’s move to change the outlook from stable to negative, reflects its assumptions about the potential downside risks to the implementation of the fiscal consolidation process posed by a less favourable growth outcome and any climate-related shocks.Moody’s decision, while not surprising, is an endorsement of the Government’s plans to deliver on its fiscal consolidation initiatives and eliminate any perceived risks to investor confidence.As emphasized in the 2017/18 Budget Communication, fiscal stability and economic growth are top priorities for the Government, and Moody’s has been advised of the Government’s willingness to pursue credit-positive fiscal initiatives and growth-promoting policies to extricate the Bahamian economy out of the low growth cycle.Through a judicious public expenditure review exercise, the Government is intent on achieving, at least, a ten percent (10%) reduction in expenditures—using a combination of approaches such as programme rationalization, where objectives are not aligned with policy priorities or producing the desired results; administrative policy adjustments, project deferrals and improvement in the procurement process.More medium-term spending control initiatives under consideration are the use of public private partnerships and efficiency improvements within the state-owned enterprises.The Government is also resolved to bringing greater accountability, transparency and sound fiscal management principles to bear on the country’s finances.   Improvements in fiscal management and policy outcomes are being promoted through the planned introduction of Fiscal Responsibility legislation, which will target, inter alia, the achievement of an annual GFS balanced budget deficit that would allow for a more sustainable evolution of the debt to GDP ratio.   IMF Technical resources are already on board to assist the Government in ensuring a well-designed legislative and operational framework, which should be finalized prior to the next budget year.   Tangential to this, work is progressing on the upgrades to the public expenditure management system, critical to achieving a credible implementation of the procedural and rules-based reporting requirements of the Fiscal Responsibility legislation.In the area of revenue administration, work is continuing to improve compliance as a means of protecting yields, and promoting tax efficiency and fairness.   These efforts include measures to improve the coverage with respect to property tax assessments and proper and timely filings relative to VAT and business licence returns.The Government is optimistic that economic growth prospects will gain more traction as the fiscal year progresses.    Specific proposals aimed at securing greater economic diversification are under active review, as are opportunities for improving business facilitation and the investment climate, through addressing issues of competitiveness, including energy reform.   Recent improvements in the labour force statistics are encouraging, and further gains are anticipated by year-end, as real sector developments provide additional opportunities for employment.The Bahamas has an excellent track record in servicing its debt obligations and, by using the right policy mix, the Government is committed to delivering a positive fiscal and economic outcome for the country.last_img read more

Govt and Oban Energies Sign Heads of Agreement for 4 Billion Project

Hubert A. Minnis announced in the House of Assembly that the Cabinet of the Bahamas had given Oban Energies the go-ahead to commence the process that will lead to construction of an oil refinery and oil storage facility in Grand Bahama.The project is expected to create 600 direct jobs and 1,000 indirect jobs during the construction phase.Monday’s signing of the Heads of Agreement (HOA) between the two sides paves the way for the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process.The EIA, which is already underway, will ensure that the project advances in an environmentally safe and sustainable manner.Prime Minister Minnis said the signing was “an important step in the approval process for Oban Energies.”“In December of 2016, the Government of The Bahamas approved Oban Energies to proceed with the construction of an oil refinery and oil storage facility in Grand Bahama.“My Government is pleased to have moved this project forward and has successfully completed negotiating the Heads of Agreement, which paves the way for the commencement of this important project,” Prime Minister Minnis said.Phase One of the project will comprise four million barrels of crude storage, a harbour and deep-sea loading docks to service large vessels, and the construction of a 50,000-barrel-per day refinery.Additionally, Oban will construct a 20 million-barrel liquid bulk storage facility and a 250,000-barrel-per day refinery.Oban has committed to employing hundreds of Bahamians during the construction phase and will create “a significant number of well-paying permanent jobs” for Bahamians once construction is completed.“Grand Bahama has seen significant indirect jobs as a result of the existing storage facilities, and we expect the same for Oban,” Prime Minister Minnis said. “This is a very significant development for Grand Bahama.” PHOTO CAPTION – Signing the Bahamas Government/Oban Energies Heads of Agreement – Camille Johnson, Secretary to the Cabinet, on behalf of the Bahamas Government, and Peter Krieger (right) of Oban Energies at the Office of the Prime Minister, February 19, 2018.   Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon.

Caribbean countries too rich and too poor CARICOM Sec Gen says rules

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppFebruary 28, 2018 – Port-au-Prince, Haiti – CARICOM countries are in a financial quagmire because they are too rich to qualify for certain aide following catastrophic encounters like the ones with hurricanes Irma and Maria, but too poor to afford the cost of damages and losses caused by these natural disasters.CARICOM’s Secretary General, Irwin Larocque made the announcement, which was no surprise, during day one of the 29th CARICOM intercessional meeting held at the Marriott in Port-au-Prince Haiti. Larocque said ideally, CARICOM countries need to access more concessionary money and although there was some success at a United Nations and CARICOM sponsored Pledging conference where some $5b was raised, not all of the money has been provided as yet.Mr. Larocque pointed to The Bahamas, which over three years was hit with a damage bill of $678 million and associate member country, British Virgin Islands where the price tag after the September hurricanes of 2017 is $1 billion.“What is needed is access to resources which must include significant grant funding and very concessional financing. Without access to such financing, this would exacerbate already high debt levels across the Region, which is due in large measure to exogenous shocks including severe climatic events.  Most of our countries are categorized as middle or high-income and are largely ineligible for concessional development financing and Official Development Assistance (ODA), due to the use of GDP per capita as the principal criterion.”There was no comment on where this concessionary funding would come from. Larocque did say though that, “There is need for new thinking, leading to changes in the criteria for determining access to concessionary financing by small, vulnerable, middle income countries.” Related Items:#irwinlarocque, CARICOM, haiti Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp UN SG is Special Guest at Opening Ceremony for CARICOM Heads Meeting Wednesday Recommended for you Hospital overflowing, chaos, damage and dead bodies in Gros-Morne Haiti TCI on Alert as riots rage in Haiti, two-year president asked to resignlast_img read more

Klopp doubts there will be any January signings at Liverpool

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp doesn’t see any new players coming in during the January transfer marketDespite losing defenders Joe Gomez and Joel Matip to injuries, Klopp is remaining calm over at Anfield and will not make any hasty decisions after spending €182.20m in the summer.Another option for Klopp is to recall Harry Wilson from his season-long loan deal with Derby County in the English Championship.The Welsh winger has impressed over at Derby with eight goals in 19 appearances.But it appears Klopp will not be recalling him or exploring the possibility of making a signing in the winter unless Liverpool injury problems get worse.“I really think Harry left in the right moment,” said Klopp on the club website.“Since I was in everybody told me Harry Wilson needed to go on loan. He scored a lot of goals for the U23s already.“He went last year to Hull, he was already good. He came back, pre-season was pre-season, and he went to Derby and now he is with Frank [Lampard].divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“It’s really nice the job Frank is doing there, it is outstanding. England has a lot of good young managers, that’s cool.“Our situation is like this; if you would have asked me two weeks before if we’ll do anything in the transfer market, I would have said, ‘Probably not.’“Now we have two centre-halves left. Will we do something? It’s not really likely because they [Gomez and Matip] are not out for a long time. But we have to judge it anew.“And that’s exactly the same with Harry. If something happens in an offensive wing position, why should I say today, ‘100 per cent we will not do it’?“That’s the only thing Derby had to accept in the moment they signed the contract. They have to wait until the last second and we can decide.“But we don’t want to take him away. Only if we really need him would we trigger that option. Otherwise, he’s there in a fantastic team.“I like watching them. How they played against United [in the Carabao Cup] was a role model game and it was not because United were weak – it was because Derby were outstanding. So, all good.”last_img read more

Paul Pogba shows support for Napoli Koulibaly

(Plus) honour handband for (Koulibaly)- 2019 say NO to racism,” Pogba wrote.Meanwhile, Ancelotti has revealed that Napoli will simply leave the pitch if similar incidents arise again in the future.He said: “It’s a shame because twice we asked for the match to be suspended for the racist chanting towards Koulibaly.”“It shook him – he’s a good-mannered player and he was bombarded by the stadium. Despite our requests and the chanting, the game wasn’t suspended. I think it should have been. Next time we’ll stop playing ourselves.”last_img read more

I don’t know how to describe it. I watched the first five minutes and thought Chelsea were going to have a real go but then they conceded a goal, then they conceded a bad goal,” he continued.“City have put a marker down today. Liverpool are going to have to win every single game to win this league. City have the bit between their teeth right now.”“The way Liverpool beat Bournemouth [on Saturday] doesn’t confirm they’re back at their best,” Souness commented.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“But that result for City has confirmed after their hiccup, they’re saying: ‘We’re bang at it, this is how we’re going to finish the season’.”“If that is their form between now and the end of the season, Liverpool have to win every game. That’s what they’re looking at,” he added.“City today have won 6-0 and you’re thinking, with it being nearly 50/50 in possession, were they that good? Yeah, I think they were in the areas that mattered.”“When they came to defend, they defended properly as a unit and individually. Up front, they were getting goals, albeit through some mistakes from Chelsea,” the Scottish footballer added.“City have had their rollicking off their manager and they’ve had their points dropped. They’re going to take some stopping if that’s their mood between now and the end.”G I N I 😱 pic.twitter.com/UuvNKf4k1R— Liverpool FC (@LFC) February 10, 2019last_img read more

Although the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department ruled her death a suicide, her family believes her boyfriend’s younger brother, Adam killed her, following a sexual assault in the mansion.Chisnall, the knot expert backed the defense claim that the knots were tied by Rebecca. He cited their looseness, their haphazard nature, their simplicity and the gap between her wrists as some of the characteristics that are common to a ligature that is self-tied, rather than tied externally.The defense continues its case on Tuesday. A criminologist is expected to be one of the final witnesses.Closing arguments are set to begin next Monday. center_img Categories: Local San Diego News Tags: Rebecca Zahau, Zahau FacebookTwitter March 26, 2018 Knot expert testifies for defense in Coronado mansion death caselast_img read more

Several women have made allegations of inappropriate advances by former San Diego

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church publicly announced several adult women have come forward to make allegations of unwanted and inappropriate advances against them by a former associate, Fr. Ben Awongo.Because these allegations were made directly to diocesan officials, there are no particular details about these accusations.Since Fr. Ben is a member of a religious order and not diocesan priest of San Diego, his superior has been given the reports and will decide on the appropriate responses or investigations.Bishop Robert McElroy made a statement in the church’s bulletin, “One of the great sadness’s for a bishop and for the Catholic community as a whole occurs when a priest has grievously failed theflock entrusted to his care. Thus it is with great regret that I must inform you that since Father Ben Awongo left Saint John’s, it has become clear that during his tenure at Encinitas, Father Awongo made aggressive advances toward several adult women of the parish. I profoundly apologize to all who were subjected to this terrible mistreatment, and I urge any victim to contact the diocese at 858-490-8353.

San Diego County considers using vacant county building as migrant shelter

However, the Department of Homeland Security terminated that practice in late October, and began to leave hundreds of families in Downtown San Diego without food, shelter or money for transportation.Since that time, a coalition of non-profit groups, called the San Diego Rapid Response Network, have operated a temporary shelter where families typically stay for one to three days. Those families receive health screenings and caseworkers assist with travel arrangements to reunite the migrant families with relatives.According to Kate Clark of Jewish Family Services,”We immediately allow the families to get into contact with their families across the United States to ensure their safety and then basically transport and travel them to their final destination.”In a meeting of the County Supervisors earlier this month, the Network asked the board to find unused county properties that could be used for a temporary shelter. Supervisors Nathan Fletcher and Greg Cox are proposing the now shuttered family courthouse at 6th and Cedar as a location for the new migrant shelter. “This location is scheduled to be demolished and turned into affordable housing. But we have flexibility in that construction is several years off,” Fletcher said.The non-profit groups will cover all the costs of running the shelter. The county will provide health screenings for the shelter occupants, but no other public money will be involved. Those who oppose the proposal said the county should be directing its resources to helping others, such as the men and women who are currently unsheltered and living on the street.However, Fletcher said doing nothing to help the migrant families may only add to the numbers of homeless people in San Diego.The proposal being considered at Tuesday’s meeting would give the shelter operators permission to use the vacant courthouse until December 31.
