Laurie Foster: Race for Olympics heating up

first_imgThe traditional magic and mystique of Olympic year is once again raring its attractive head. With just about nine weeks to go for the National Championships (Trials), already, a few athletes are positioning themselves, drawing for their bow and taking aim. The bullseye is a seat on the plane to the widely acknowledged ultimate in sports participation, officially known as the Games of the XXXI Olympiad in the Brazilian city of Rio. For this blessed nation, with the eye-catching attraction of the sports’ world-governing body, the professional circuit, yet unfolded, promises of spectacular performances are rife. After missing two World Championships through troubling injury, Yohan Blake has stormed back. He has publicly dropped a name that identified him as a monstrous and despicable creature, which he is not. The former St Jago High School sprinter and current national under-20 record holder (10.11+1.2) blasted a then 100m world-leading 9.95 legal at the UTech-MVP Classic on April 16. It stands as arguably the most compelling boost of confidence and satisfaction levels for a country trying to put its best feet forward leading into the great spectacle in the South American continent this August. EARLY DAYS Downgrade the Blake impact a bit to Simone Facey’s 11.00 at the Tom Jones Memorial last weekend. This, too, must be a morale strengthener to an athlete who has been constantly flogged in more recent times by many she considered to be her inferior in junior track. The 2009 Berlin WC 4x100m gold medallist has sent an early indication of her path to Rio. The mark will earn her lanes at the very top of the competition ladder where there is no dodging by the world’s fastest as exists with the other gender. Yet, it is early days and one is not aware of the quality or sustainability of her programme. Suffice it to say, in the absence of this knowledge, to the fringe-based honours suspects at Trials: “Watch out, VCB, Sherone (Simpson), Kerron (Stewart) and company, Simone might have been sleeping, but is now fully awake.” The advance of the nation’s throwing programme cannot escape mention in a Rio context. Foster’s Fairplay will continue to carry the flag for coaches/pioneers of excellence in that traditionally ignored area. Julian Leonard Robinson and Michael Vassell have torched the consciences of the movers and shakers of the sport in the local arena. Their charges have been crashing parties in both genders. The new, and much appreciated by a few, wellness in discus and shot put is contagious. It has spread to the Edwin Allen and Petersfield High school models. Foster’s Fairplay, on that limited mention, is hearing legitimate calls reminiscent of the soul classic by the group Champagne – “How about us?” Yes, the template has extended to other camps. However, the point to be made is that the world scene has been invaded in these hitherto peripheral disciplines and the two coaches mentioned can take a proverbial bow. As MVP’s Paul Francis, himself part of a game-changing group, said on Facebook recently, words to the effect of: “Why stop at the World Junior level? Go for the Olympics.” Let us then see if the throwing contingent of (Odayne) Richards, (Jason) Morgan, (Federick) Dacres, (Traves) Smikle and company can inspire the new discus national Under-20 record holder and Vassell-conditioned Shanice Love to reach for Rio. With all that jockeying for team selection in store, the fans’ taste buds are already well moistened. The intensity of the Diamond League and all that it brings to the fore will only be more enticing and threatens to sweeten the competition brew even further. Looking at the pending action, on field and track, one learned critic, referring to the Jamaica Trials, opined: “It will be like a mini-Olympics. Another, speaking in less ornate terms, confided: “It nah guh normal.” Foster’s Fairplay believes that those predictions could fall short at crunch time, June 30 to July 3.

Minister urged to convene Beef Market Taskforce to implement agreement actions

first_imgFarmers are extremely frustrated over the inability of the Minister for Agriculture to get all stakeholders around the table for the inaugural meeting of the Beef Market Taskforce.That’s according to Fianna Fáil spokesperson on Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue TD.Speaking today (Weds), the Donegal TD, said: “We are almost three months on from the Irish Beef Sector deal agreed by seven national farm organisations and Meat Industry Ireland on September 15th, Minister Creed has failed to get the much-referenced Beef Taskforce up and running. “This is extremely disappointing. The Minister’s remarks that convening the taskforce was ‘in the hands of the chairman’ was very disingenuous. He cannot delegate out responsibility for the unresolved issue.“With steer prices still on the floor at €3.45, beef farmers feel abandoned with many reforms in the beef agreement awaiting progression and approval from the taskforce. This includes the beef market index which will strengthen transparency around beef, cattle and offal prices.“Factories have imposed weight limits recently. This is contrary to the four-month notice period that was to be observed under the September 15th deal. All processors must adhere to this.“The failure by Minister Creed to establish the task force is a slap in the face for the farmers that protested and agreed to step down protests on the basis the government would establish the taskforce. This failure by the government to act and follow-through is the type of inaction that lead farmers to the picket line in the first place. “Beef farmers feel abandoned with many reforms agreed in September still in limbo with the taskforce yet to meet. The Minister must stand up for farmers and get the taskforce operating and take full responsibility for this action. The buck stops with him and him alone,” concluded Deputy McConalogue.Minister urged to convene Beef Market Taskforce to implement agreement actions was last modified: November 13th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:charlie mcconalogelast_img read more

Biological Fact: Men and Women Are Different

first_imgToday’s trend of gender confusion flies in the face of science. Who is “anti-science” in this hotbed political issue?The transgender movement tries to separate sex at birth from gender identity later in life. Birth sex, they might agree, is biologically evident in all but rare cases, but gender is fluid, they say, and can be a choice. Extremists have invented dozens of new genders people can “identify” with, and insist that others must use distinct pronouns to refer to them. They even want to eliminate the words “men” and “women” from public vocabulary, akin to Newspeak in Orwell’s 1984.And yet the biological differences between males and females do not stop at birth; they continue onward, leading to distinct differences throughout life. These differences are not just external, but internal as well, even in the mind. Scientific papers continue to report these differences no matter what marchers and activists say on their placards.X and Y chromosomes differ dramatically in size and contentSex Chromosome Effects on Male–Female Differences in Mammals (Current Biology). These authors affirm that sex differences are pervasive, and biologically evident down to the cellular level. It is unlikely that treatment with sex hormones will change these innate differences.Fundamental differences exist between males and females, encompassing anatomy, physiology, behaviour, and genetics. Such differences undoubtedly play a part in the well documented, yet poorly understood, disparity in disease susceptibility between the sexes. Although traditionally attributed to gonadal sex hormone effects, recent work has begun to shed more light on the contribution of genetics — and in particular the sex chromosomes — to these sexual dimorphisms. Here, we explore the accumulating evidence for a significant genetic component to mammalian sexual dimorphism through the paradigm of sex chromosome evolution…. A functional result of these differences is cell autonomous sexual dimorphism. By understanding the process that changed a pair of homologous ancestral autosomes into the extant mammalian X and Y, we believe it easier to consider the mechanisms that may contribute to hormone-independent male–female differences.Psychotropic use patterns: Are there differences between men and women? (PLoS One). Based on a study of adults in Campinas, Brazil, scientists concluded, “The present results confirm the greater use of psychotropic agents, especially antidepressants, in the female sex and reveal that the pattern of associated factors differs between sexes. It is therefore necessary to understand the peculiarities of each sex that exert an influence on the perception of health problems and the desire to seek care, which, in turn, affect the use of psychotropic agents.”Stress-induced effects on heart blood flow differ for men versus women (Science Daily). “Mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia occurs in both men and women, although younger women tend to have more of this phenomenon. While MSIMI is linked to worse cardiovascular outcomes in both sexes, there may be sex differences in the mechanism through which stress can trigger MSIMI, according to new research by Viola Vaccarino, Md, PhD, and colleagues, of Emory University School of Public Health and School of Medicine, Atlanta.”Why older women are less healthy than older men (Science Daily). Have you ever heard of the “male-female health survival paradox”? Older women are more ill in old age, but men are more likely to die at any age. There appears to be a biological reason. “Genes that act late in life could explain why women have poorer health than men in older age, according to new research.”Differences between male and female fat tissue, and health (Science Daily). Linda Andrews writes, “New research from York University on fat tissue is providing an important clue as to how females stay healthier than males, even as their body fat increases.”Soccer heading worse for women’s brains than for men’s (Medical Xpress). Perhaps men are more thick-skulled than women. Will this factor into Title IX rules for sports?Women’s brains are much more vulnerable than men’s to injury from repeated soccer heading, according to a new study by researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, part of Montefiore. The study found that regions of damaged brain tissue were five times more extensive in female soccer players than in males, suggesting that sex-specific guidelines may be warranted for preventing soccer-related head injuries. The results were published online today in Radiology.Snoring poses greater cardiac risk to women (Science Daily). This comes from the Radiological Society of North America: “Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring may lead to earlier impairment of cardiac function in women than in men, according to a new study.”Sex, drugs and estradiol: Why cannabis affects women differently (Science Daily). If gender is just a figment of the imagination, or of hormones or social constructs, why would this be true? “Cannabis use is riding high on a decade-long wave of decriminalization, legalization and unregulated synthetic substitutes. As society examines the impact, an interesting disparity has become apparent: the risks are different in females than in males.”Virtual reality assessment of walking and non-walking space in men and women with virtual reality-based tasks (PLoS One). Using virtual-reality tests on 60 men and 60 women, this study determined that “men outperformed women, committing less number of errors in both virtual tasks.” This only indicates sexual differences in certain cognitive skills; men are good at some, women are better at others. The authors had no hesitation stating these well-known facts that previous studies have supported:Furthermore, spatial cognition is directly related to gender. Hence, men and women have proven to use different spatial abilities in which male outperform their female counterparts. This was previously reported in several virtual reality-based tasks as well as in different versions of the Boxes Room task. Women committed more errors than men no matter if they used distal landmarks or proximal landmarks. It is noticeable that sexual dimorphism depended on the level of difficulty. Thus, differences appeared in levels of medium difficulty but disappeared when low or high difficulty conditions were used.Nephrologists may need more training in women’s health issues (Medical Xpress). Don’t both sexes have kidneys? Shouldn’t nephrologists (kidney doctors) be politically correct and treat their patients equally? That would ignore the biological fact that women’s kidney treatments are complicated by “menstrual disorders, contraception, osteoporosis and menopause.”Men are less likely than women to survive some cancers, study shows (Medical Xpress). Apparently cancer doesn’t care about the LGBT movement. It must be sexist.Men with particular cancers generally fare worse than women with the same cancers, new Australian research has found.Published in Cancer Causes & Control, the Cancer Council Victoria and University of Melbourne-led population-based study found men had a survival disadvantage relative to women for 11 of the 25 cancer types investigated.Women had lower survival than men for bladder cancer and cancers of renal pelvis or ureter. The sex differences were generally greatest for people diagnosed at younger ages. For 12 cancer types, there were no differences in net survival.Obviously, too, women never get testicular cancer, prostate cancer, or penile cancer, and men do not get ovarian cancer or uterine cancer. Men are far less likely to get breast cancer (although some do).ConclusionsThese are just a few samples of scientific reports and research papers that illustrate gender differences linked to biology. None of these reports or paper even dream of other genders. They are always about male/female, men/women differences. The differences are biological. They are universal, global, non-racial, non-sectarian, and non-cultural. They exist from conception through old age. No generation till the present has ever conceived of multi-genderism. Yet institutions like Drexel University are walking a fine line, trying to be supportive of the transgender cause in spite of the science. In Phys.org, waving a gender-neutral flag, they ask, “Would a new definition of gender erase trans people?” The University is bending over backward to ease transgender fears that the Trump administration’s definition of gender as biological sex would harm the gender-confused students.In the image of God He made them; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27 (Credit: models at the Creation Museum, Kentucky; photo by DFC)Some rational people may just laugh this off as the latest progressive insanity. But the gender radicals are gaining alarming power, and will likely start calling normal people “insanity-phobes” for wanting to stay sane. Already, we have seen Nature fall in line and claim that the Trump administrations definition of gender (as biological sex at birth) has no basis in science (3 Nov 2018). Deep-state progressives and Obama holdovers in the federal government try to sneak gender non-discrimination language into trade deals, military regulations and omnibus bills. James Dobson warned that time is running out to fix the transgender mandate in a trade deal (WND). Universities are punishing straight people who will not bow the knee to the PC totalitarians, and cities or states are denying contracts to those who will not pledge non-discrimination language to LGBT dictators. Companies like AirBnB require it; Twitter is starting to drop users who transgress their gender rules, and a new wave of lawsuits will punish businesses who refuse to use their talents to affirm transgenderism, like they already have for those who would not affirm gay marriage (e.g., Jack Phillips, Baronelle Stutzman). The transgender activists would change every bathroom in the country, taking off “men” and “women” signs, and letting anybody use any bathroom, including men invading the privacy of women’s personal space in bathrooms and changing rooms. Target Stores have still not repented of this evil (don’t shop there this Christmas). This is no game; it is serious, and getting worse. And yet conservatives, who affirm only male/female and men/women, have the science behind them! To borrow a phrase, the price of sanity is eternal vigilance.(Visited 1,567 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Business Leaders Welcome Decision Not to Implement New Taxes

first_img Several business leaders have welcomed the Government’s decision not to implement new revenue measures to fund the 2018/19 Budget, which amounts to $773.6 billion.Finance and Public Service Minister, Hon. Audley Shaw, in opening the Budget Debate on March 8, indicated that Government expenditure for the fiscal year will be primarily financed from the existing tax and non-tax revenue and grants regime.He says emphasis will be placed on boosting compliance to improve collections particularly at Jamaica Customs Agency (JCA) and Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ).Jamaica Chamber of Commerce (JCC) President, Larry Watson, welcomes the decision, citing it as one of the Budget highlights.He tells JIS News that the decision reflects a promise kept by the Government, which he describes as “good and solid.”“I think it is clear that steps are being taken to make Jamaica more efficient in tax collection. The fact that we are seeing the revenues surpassing budgeted amounts is a big positive and hopefully, this is bringing more persons and businesses in the informal economy into the formal economy,” the JCC President says.He further points to studies indicating a potential reduction in tax rates if all income earners begin fulfilling their statutory obligations.Noting that “overall the Budget was good” Mr. Watson says it suggests that “we are on a path of recovery” which, he points out, commenced under the previous Administration and is continuing under the current Government.He, however, expresses concern about crime and the potential to derail economic gains and as such, welcomes the increased allocations for national security as “a very positive move.”The JCC President says the fact that some unions representing public sector workers have not yet signed the four-year wage agreement with the Government is also a matter of concern.He notes that Jamaica being locked into an International Monetary Fund (IMF) agreement and benefitting from other resulting multilateral financing support requires the country to “toe the line” as regards programme and policy implementation.Mr. Watson says, however, that unlike the earlier years of the multilateral support that were characterised by more stringent guidelines, “I believe toeing the line is now more comfortable (and) palatable.”He urges civil servants to exercise some constraint and consideration.“If we can get the restraint of the public sector groups, I am pretty confident that the economy will grow and that would allow for a little more generosity in the wage guidelines. Success is journey, not a destination,” Mr. Watson says.The JCC President further points to the fact that the economy has not achieved the levels of growth as expected, due primarily to adverse weather conditions, which affected the agricultural sector.“Once we have good weather this year we should record some more growth,” he contends.He says there is need for steps to be taken “to now really put the economy into gear” to achieve sustainable levels of growth.To this end, he cites the need for more investment and infusion of technology in agriculture, further diversification of the country’s production base, and advancing work with the Special Economic Zone Act and accompanying engagements.Jamaica Manufacturers Association (JMA) President, Metry Seaga, says he too is “extremely pleased” that there are no new taxes in the Budget and that “the economy seems to be on the right track.”“I think there will be renewed confidence over the forthcoming fiscal year. I think that people will be happy to hear that there are no new taxes and with that will come some additional confidence and investments,” he tells JIS NEWS.Mr. Seaga maintains that the prevailing macroeconomic stability is creating an environment that can enable Jamaica to achieve higher rates of growth.He calls for greater focus on manufacturing in order to achieve the desired growth levels.For his part, Small Business Association of Jamaica (SBAJ) President, Hugh Johnson, welcomes plans for the creation of a micro stock market or “nano market” on the Jamaica Stock Exchange (JSE).Minister Shaw, who made the announcement during his Budget presentation, said the nano market would cater to the needs of micro enterprises.“The march towards a formal economy is an absolute requirement because it helps to promote discipline and, ultimately, it enhances the productivity and profitability of businesses. In that context, we have to keep looking out of the box,” he indicated.Mr. Johnson describes this as a timely decision that will enable fledgling businesses to access capital “that they wouldn’t have normally been able to get”, adding that “the best part of the proposal is that it’s providing equity financing.”Meanwhile, he says the SBAJ welcomes the decision not to impose new taxes this year, and the heightened focus that will be placed on boosting compliance.“We have been saying all along that if they get more people into the net, they will be able to reduce even the burden on those who have been bearing it for many years,” Mr. Johnson points out.In this regard, he lauds the TAJ for taking steps to improve client service delivery.Noting that previously, customers had to interface with multiple officers, he says “it is now just a one stop process, where you can go on your computer and within 15 minutes, you can file your returns… and we see these as welcomed improvements to the system.”“That is what we have been saying all along… that business operators aren’t against paying taxes… what we need is the ease of paying taxes. Hence, we have been seeing an influx of new entrants and also we are shooting for the second year in a row, above projected targets of revenue. So unlike previous years, when we used to fall way below targets, now we are shooting ahead of projections,” he adds.Mr. Johnson, however, cites several areas which he says the Government needs to focus on doing more work.Among these, he tells JIS News, are the implementation of more substantial measures that will facilitate heightened growth of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises; allocation of significant resources for farm road rehabilitation; and ensuring that arable lands earmarked for agriculture are so utilised and not used for unrelated engagements.

Rent Restriction Act to be Amended

first_imgSeveral amendments are being proposed to the Rent Restriction Act, which are expected to address current challenges in the rental industry and make it more equitable for landlords and tenants.According to Senior Director in the Housing Policy, Research and Monitoring Branch of the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Paula Parkes, the challenges which exist in the industry relate mostly to standardisation of security deposits, timely recovery of possessions and breach of tenant and landlord covenants.Addressing a JIS Think Tank on Friday, May 18, she said among the changes being proposed is an amendment to the name of the Act to ‘The Rent Act’. She said the word ‘restriction’ will be removed to make it clear that the Act covers the entirety of the rental industry.The matter of security deposits, which are not mentioned in the original 1944 Act, will also be included in the amended Act. “The provisions will include standardisation of the number of months of deposits that renters are entitled to charge. Currently, we are recommending one month for unfurnished premises and two months for furnished. Additionally, the provisions have guidelines for the use and refund to tenants,” Ms. Parkes clarified.Another provision being proposed relate to the recovery of possessions, which will now fall under the ambit of the Rent Assessment Board. The Board’s powers will be expanded to manage such cases, thereby reducing case load in courts and bring about timely solutions to matters.Minimum standards for rental premises; permissible rent; and fines and penalties will also be proposed for inclusion in the legislation.The public is being invited to provide feedback on the proposed amendments, during a series of consultations being conducted at locations island wide from May 15 to June 20.The current Rent Restriction Act applies to all building land unless such land is leased for a term of 25 years or more and to all dwelling houses except those which are let for boarding, let for housing pursuant to the provisions of the Housing Act or declared exempt by the Minister of Housing pursuant to section 8 of the Act.The Act has been amended 11 times since it was enacted, the last being in 1983.last_img read more

Chelsea Clinton To Visit Clinton Foundation Projects In Haiti

first_imgOn Tuesday, July 28, and Wednesday, July 29, Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton and Clinton Foundation President Donna Shalala will lead a group of philanthropists, business leaders, and Clinton Foundation supporters to visit Foundation efforts that are supporting the development and growth of the Haitian agriculture, health, entrepreneurship, and business sectors.Chelsea Clinton will also host a No Ceilings Conversation on empowering Haitian girls and women as entrepreneurs.Illustrating the Clinton Foundation’s innovative philanthropic model, efforts in Haiti take a multi-faceted approach in fostering sustainable economic development with a shared goal of increasing opportunities for girls and women. This includes helping to raise emergency relief funds; providing grants to local organizations; and creating partnerships between public, private, and nonprofit organizations.Since 2010, the Clinton Foundation has helped raise more than $30 million for Haiti, including relief funds and projects that are focused on supporting Haiti’s small and medium businesses; improving livelihoods; enhancing education; and exploring the nexus of agriculture, energy, and the environment. Today, the Clinton Foundation focuses on creating sustainable economic growth in the priority sectors of energy, tourism, agriculture, and artisans/manufacturing. The Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (CGEP), an initiative of the Clinton Foundation, has also created a social enterprise in Haiti that works to address market opportunities in local supply and distribution chains.Additionally, through the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), an initiative of the Clinton Foundation, CGI members have made more than 100 Commitments to Action focused on Haiti, which will be valued over $500 million when fully funded and implemented. Now in its seventh year, CGI’s Haiti Action Network has a significant focus on creating sustainable jobs and encouraging investment in the country.last_img read more
