The National Identification Systems (NIDS) Project has committed significant investments to the system upgrade and strengthening of the Registrar General’s Department’s (RGD) national civil registry, in preparation for its roll-out.The RGD is being revamped as the National Identification and Registration Authority to carry out the management of the NIDS, in addition to civil registration.Project Coordinator for the RGD transformation, Charlton McFarlane, said among key activities to be undertaken in preparation will be the digitisation of RGD records, which is expected to result in significant efficiency gains.“For the digitisation project, the first thing we did was a research to determine how many records are there to be digitised. We are now in the process of preparing the request for proposals so that we can go to tender in the very near future to get assistance and technical expertise,” he said.Mr. McFarlane, who was addressing a recent Jamaica Information Service (JIS) ‘Think Tank’, further noted that funds have also been set aside for the procurement of a new civil registration system.“We are upgrading our business processes and looking at how we can automate several of our systems which currently are manual and not as efficient,” he said.The RGD will also bring a consultant on board to review its civil registration system as well as its operational procedures.Mr. McFarlane said the RGD is also partnering with the NIDS project to identify and register Jamaicans who are not currently registered, through islandwide engagement activities. The first outreach session was held on June 20 in Linstead, St. Catherine, and saw the registration of some 500 persons.The next outreach will be in September in St. Thomas.“Over the next 18 months, we intend to go across the length and breadth of Jamaica and have several outreach activities that will target these undocumented individuals,” he said.

Panellists quit corporate responsibility panel citing erosion of trust

first_imgOTTAWA — Citing an erosion of trust, civil society and labour representatives have resigned from a panel set up to advise the federal government on ensuring Canadian firms operating abroad are accountable for how they conduct themselves.The 14 members withdrew from the “multi-stakeholder advisory body on responsible business conduct” Thursday, complaining that a newly created adviser on corporate accountability lacks the teeth to ensure companies conducting business outside Canada do so in a responsible manner.The government announced in January 2018 the creation of a Canadian ombudsperson for responsible enterprise (CORE), saying the office would be given the tools to conduct credible, independent investigations.The ombudsperson’s powers were to include the ability to summon witnesses and compel documents.But civil-society leaders say the appointment in April of this year of a special adviser to the international trade minister instead, without giving that adviser proper investigative powers, backtracked on the pledge.And because of that, organizations operating under the umbrella Canadian Network on Corporate Accountability said they lost faith in the ability of the advisory body to function as originally envisioned.Amnesty International Canada secretary general Alex Neve said he was pleased to be vice-chair of the advisory body when it was established.“It was because of assurances that the CORE would have independence and real investigatory powers that we stood alongside the government in January 2018 and we promoted the announcement both nationally and internationally,” Neve said.“The government of Canada’s decision to backtrack on those promises … has led me to lose confidence. I will no longer be able to continue in this role.”Emily Dwyer with the Canadian Network on Corporate Accountability also questioned how civil-society groups can be assured that actions will be taken in changing laws and policies when the government appears to have bowed to industry pressure.“Without independence and investigatory powers, the CORE amounts to nothing more than a broken promise,” she said.A spokesman for International Trade Diversification Minister Jim Carr expressed regret over the departures from the panel but said the government is making progress in promoting responsible business conduct and is looking forward to the ombudsperson’s office being up and running by fall.“We’re grateful for the time and service of these members in advising the minister and in helping to lay the groundwork for the Canadian Ombudsperson on Responsible Enterprise,” said an email from Michael Jones, Carr’s director of communications.“We’re disappointed in their decision to leave the advisory body,” said the statement.“While consensus on these issues remains elusive, dialogue between civil society and industry is critical to progress and walking away from that dialogue is a step backwards and regrettable.”The mining sector has been a particular target of groups demanding greater oversight of activities of Canadian companies operating abroad.Indigenous groups in South America and Africa have complained in recent years of violence and human-rights abuses connected to resource projects carried out by Canadian-controlled companies, which sparked calls for greater accountability.Terry Pedwell, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Confidence dropping in real estate market

by Cindy White Posted Dec 30, 2015 7:36 am MDT Confidence dropping in real estate market We know low oil is hurting Alberta’s economic confidence, but it’s also starting to make people in other parts of the country nervous heading into 2016.The latest Nanos survey for Bloomberg News found the biggest drop in three years in Canadian confidence in the real estate market.The index measures a number of things like job security, personal finance and expectations for the economy.It says the prairie provinces, once with the best consumer sentiment, continue to slide driving down the national average, and it has also hit a new regional low for the year.Also having an impact is the drop in the Canadian dollar to levels not seen in more than a decade.

Ohio State mens lacrosse hoping to bounce back against Massachusetts

Junior attackman Reegan Comeault (8) looks for an open teammate during a game against Robert Morris Feb. 1 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. OSU won, 11-7.Credit: Ryan Robey / For The LanternLooking to rebound from a triple overtime loss to Johns Hopkins, the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team is set to travel to Everbank Field in Jacksonville, Fla., Sunday to take on the Massachusetts Minutemen in the Moe’s Southwest Grill Classic.Playing at Homewood Field for the first time since 2001, OSU was unable to come away with the win against Johns Hopkins after senior attackman Brandon Benn scored 59 seconds into the third overtime to help the Blue Jays escape with the victory.OSU coach Nick Myers said despite the loss, he liked the resiliency his players showed, which is something the team can build upon moving forward.“Our men fought hard,” Myers said Wednesday. “When that enthusiasm, that fight and energy is there, that is something we can look at and say is going to carry us until we get the schemes and the play to where we want it to be.”Coming off a 7-8 record in 2013, UMass got its season underway last weekend when it traveled to Michie Stadium in West Point, N.Y., to take on Army.Led by a pair of two-goal performances from junior attackman Grant Whiteway and freshman attackman Nick Mariano, the Minutemen were able to hold off the Black Knights and walk away victorious, 6-5.OSU senior defenseman Joe Meurer, who caused one turnover in the loss to Johns Hopkins, said as far as defensively, OSU is not worried about who is on the other side of the field, but it is more focused on playing its own game and growing together as a unit.“We’re continuing to build chemistry with our defense,” Meurer said. “It all goes back to our approaches on guys, playing loud, and playing with our sticks up to generate a lot of turnovers.”Offensively, the Buckeyes are likely to search for more weapons alongside junior midfielder Jesse King, who led the team in scoring against Johns Hopkins with a career-high five goals and also added an assist.However, OSU will have to do that against a UMass defense that has been ranked in the top 25 for three consecutive years.Myers said one of the things that has to improve for the Buckeyes if they are going to find that production this week is their extra-man opportunities, where OSU went 0-4 last Sunday.“We haven’t proven that we can score on a routine basis without Jesse in that group,” Myers said. “It’s something that we’ve focused on this week in practice and are expecting to see more of this weekend. It’s an area of focus for us.”Senior defenseman Dominic Imbordino said if the Buckeyes stick to their schemes, they can come away this weekend with the win.“It’s more about us right now,” Imbordino said. “If we play the way we know we can … if we keep building the foundation, we are going to be OK.”Game time is set for Sunday at 9 p.m. read more

Eickhoff continuous miners exceeding targets at Exxaros DorstfonteinWest

first_imgSouth Africa’s coal industry is the largest in Africa and boasts with the continent’s largest recoverable coal reserve and coal production base. South Africa mined about 260 Mt of coal in 2014 which makes it one of the global top ten coal producers. Approximately 75% of the South African coal produced is utilised locally whereas the balance is exported mainly via the Richards Bay Coal Terminal. About 80% of South Africa’s power generation comes from coal. The state-owned utility Eskom operates 13 coal fired power stations with two additional power stations currently under construction and to be integrated into the local power grid soon.One of Eskom’s suppliers of coal is the South African large mining house Exxaro with its recently established coal branch Exxaro Coal Central (ECC). This major player in the African coal industry has a long history of mining with roots dating back to the state owned mining company Iscor established in 1928. Today, Exxaro is JSE-listed and broad-based black owned and managed. Besides its local sales it is one of the largest exporters of coal in South Africa. Current coal production levels of ECC equates to approximately 3.9 Mt/y which is mined from one managed open cast and two underground operations.ECC runs a met coal operation at the Dorstfontein Complex. It is located 30 km south of eMalahleni at the Northern part of the Highveld coal field. The Dorstfontein Complex comprises the open cast East operations as well as the underground West operations. In 2015, Dorstfontein-West mined the Lower Number 2 Seam at an annual production of 700,000 t (Run of Mine). Currently there are three continuous miner (CM) sections and one drill and blast section in operation.One of the three continuous miners at Dorstfontein-West is an Eickhoff CM2H-30. The modern Eickhoff CM2-Series continuous miners are very popular in tough low seam mining applications. Apart from the CM2H-30 model, Eickhoff has 14 Continuous Miners currently operational in the market which also includes the CM2H-37 and CM2H-45 models. During the second half of 2015, the CM2H-30 machine arrived at Dorstfontein-West on a trial basis. This low profile CM prevailed in ECC’s challenging conditions. With this the mine decided to buy the South African-German jointly engineered and manufactured continuous miner. Since then, the machine has been exceeding its individual targets set by the mine.Eickhoff says it is proud to support one of the largest coal producers in South Africa. “Eickhoff’s local sales and service hub is committed to ECC’s operations and will continue to provide the bestlevels of service and support to guarantee maximum performance of Exxaro’s investment.”last_img read more

Ireland told to stop sending people to prison for not paying fines

first_imgTHE UN HAS expressed concern at the number of people going to prison for failure to pay fines.In an eight page document released by the international body’s Human Rights Committee yesterday, it said an alternative method needs to be looked at.This is despite the adoption of Enforcement of Court Orders (amendment) Act 2009 and Fines (payment and recovery) Act 2014 by the State.The UN committee said: “The State party should fully implement the Fines (payment and recovery) Act 2014 to provide for a community service order as an alternative to imprisonment used as a method of enforcing contractual obligations.”Welcoming the recommendations the Irish Penal Reform Trust (IPRT) called on the Government to act on the committee’s recommendations “without delay”.Deirdre Malone, executive director of the IPRT said: “The Committee is uncompromising in its statement that no one should be sent to prison for failure to pay fines or debts. The Fines Act 2014… must be fully implemented, and with urgency.“In the meantime, Ireland continues to send thousands of people to prison every year for being unable to pay fines,” Malone said.The committee also tells Ireland to ”step up its efforts” on improving living conditions for prisoners including addressing the practice of ‘slopping out’.Currently over 300 prisoners are slopping out in prisons across Ireland.It said improvements to living conditions, treatment of detainees, overcrowding and the practice of ‘slopping out’ should be looked at “as a matter of urgency” in line with the Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners.In its observations the committee welcomed measures taken by the State to improve prison conditions and to increase the use of community sanctions as an alternative to imprisonment.However, it criticised the lack of progress in eliminating “adverse conditions” in a number of prisons including overcrowding, lack of in-cell sanitation facilities and lack of segregation of remand and convicted prisoners.In reaction to this, Malone of the IPRT said: “Over 300 prisoners are still slopping out in Ireland today, many in crowded cells, where they also eat their meals. It is inhumane and degrading, and it must end.”UN tells Ireland to open an investigation into symphysiotomyUN: Ireland must take action to decriminalise abortionlast_img read more

Zones humides quatre nouveaux sites protégés au Mexique

first_imgZones humides : quatre nouveaux sites protégés au MexiqueA l’occasion du quarantième anniversaire de la convention Ramsar, signée le 2 février 1971 afin d’enrayer la disparition des zones humides à travers le monde, le Mexique a placé quatre nouveaux sites sous la protection de la convention. Avec ces quatre nouvelles zones humides, le Mexique protège désormais quelque 9 millions d’hectares grâce à la convention de Ramsar. En France, la superficie des zones humides ainsi protégées s’étend à ce jour sur 3.290 578 hectares, en comparaison. Comme le rapporte le site Goodplanet, ce sont la lagune de Cuyutlan, située dans l’Etat de Colima, l’estuaire du Soldado dans le Sonora, El Jaguey dans l’Etat d’Aguascalientes, et la Presa de Silva à Guanajuato, qui seront désormais protégés au Mexique.À lire aussiBrésil : des stades ‘verts’ pour la Coupe du monde 2014Les zones humides offrent une biodiversité unique, aux vertus biologiques, hydrologiques et économiques incomparables. Elles abritent de nombreuses espèces d’oiseaux, de plantes, d’insectes et de poissons, dont certaines sont menacées. Alors qu’en France, 50% de ces sites ont disparu entre 1960 et 1990, la convention de Ramsar vise à lutter contre cette érosion, en assurant la conservation et l’utilisation durable des zones humides.Alors que le Mexique ajoutait de nouveaux sites à la convention, la ministre de l’Ecologie Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet annonçait le même jour le prochain lancement d’un appel à candidatures pour la création du premier parc national de zones humides français.Le 8 février 2011 à 18:13 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_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

Kate Jones today said: “This is what we think is a first in Australia. It shows that innovation is real and it’s happening right here in Brisbane. This really does provide a seamless welcoming experience for people that come to Brisbane with a world-class facility.“When you couple a world class hospital with all of the allied services that are also here as well as a wonderful stay, I am sure it will be absolutely booked out.“I am very confident that this brand new product will absolutely put Essence on the map. I am very proud as a Queenslander that this is happening in our backyard.“When you listen to what consumers want, that is when you drive growth. We know that around 2 million Australians every year travel for surgery so to be able to provide them with a real seamless and world-class experience is something that the market has been crying out for, for a real long time.”last_img read more
