Two-Day Alternative Energy Expo Underway in Kingston

first_imgMore than 70 local and overseas companies are showing off the latest and best in emerging energy efficiency products and technologies, at the Jamaica Alternative Energy Expo in Kingston.Minister of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Phillip Paulwell, officially declared the two-day event open on Monday, April 15, at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel. Minister Paulwell offered the Government’s full endorsement of the event, noting that it is focusing on enabling Jamaicans to have information on various alternative energy systems, particularly solar.“The Government is very pleased, because in relation to solar, we have removed taxation on all aspects, whether it is on import duties or General Consumption Tax (GCT),” Minister Paulwell told JIS News.“We have been articulating a vision for the country to incorporate more and more solar usage especially at the residential level. I myself have been able to benefit tremendously from it. I also see it as a business opportunity to enable growth and job creation and it should really be one that small businesses in Jamaica could move towards as we look to more opportunities in the Jamaican economy,” he continued.Producer of the event, Peter Shoucair, said the objective is to educate and sensitise the public about energy efficiency and conservation in residential, commercial and institutional settings.“I think it is good for Jamaicans to come out learn how they can reduce their energy usage, see the options, the players in the market, who to speak to, all in one location. This is why I decided to do it,” he stated.Mr. Shoucair, who is also Managing Director of Green Energy Savings Ltd. noted that while there have been a lot of green expos in Jamaica, his aim was to get all the industry players together in one setting.“It is the right time now. It is almost US$.43 per kilowatt hour (for electricity). The Jamaica Public Service (JPS) is trying, the Minister is trying. So it is a good time,” he stated.Among those attending Monday’s opening were students from Greater Portmore Primary School in St. Catherine, accompanied by grade six teacher, Faith Powell, who explained that they are at the event on an information gathering mission.“We have a project. We have a reading zoo that we are developing. The Grade 6 has been doing a survey and it has helped them to decide what is needed for the reading zoo. Now, they are looking at producing a waterfall for the ducks and using alternative energy as a means to do that,” she informed.She explained that the students will be developing their own portfolios on alternative energy. In the end, they will host their own expo to educate the school population and to raise funds for their project.In addition to the exhibits, there will be several seminars with experts in the business. Topics for discussion today include: ‘Terms and equipment/how Jamaica will have leadership role in the Caribbean’; ‘JPS initiatives to empower customers to take charge of their energy consumption’; ‘10 things to watch when purchasing a solar system for your home or business’; ‘Challenges the country faces with the rising cost of energy and options available to mitigate against these threats’.On Tuesday, April 16, discussions will focus on: ‘Solar systems PV 101’ and ‘Solar Economics’; ‘Mega and micro hybrid solar projects’; Solar technologies made simple’; Innovative ways to significantly reduce energy consumption; ‘Research development and innovation in sustainable energy in the CARICOM region’, among others.By Andrea Braham, JIS Reporterlast_img read more

SC to hear from Jul 30 pleas against Centres 10 pc quota

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday said it will hear from July 30 a bunch of pleas challenging the Centre’s decision to grant 10 per cent reservation in jobs and admissions to candidates of economically weaker sections (EWS).The top court said it will also hear a plea for interim stay on the operation of the new controversial law. A bench of Justices S A Bobde and B R Gavai said that the matter requires hearing at length. Senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, appearing for some of the petitioners including a NGO ‘Janhit Abhiyan’ said that the operation of the Act needs to be stayed. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity!The bench said the issue requires hearing at length and it would hear the petition along with all intervening applications in support and against the new law from July 30. The apex court had earlier refused to stay the Centre’s decision to grant 10 per cent quota in jobs and admissions to poor candidates in the general category. However, the court had agreed to examine the validity of the law and issued a notice to the Centre on the pleas. One of the petitioners has sought quashing of the Constitution (103 Amendment) Act, 2019, saying economic criterion cannot be the sole basis for reservation. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killedThe petitioner has said the bill violates the basic feature of the Constitution as reservation on economic grounds cannot be limited to the general category and the overall 50 per cent ceiling limit cannot be breached. The Centre has come out with the constitutional amendment bill giving quota benefits to the poor among general category candidates. The Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha cleared the bill on January 8 and 9 respectively, and it has been signed by President Ram Nath Kovind. The quota will be over and above the existing 50 per cent reservation to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes.last_img read more

Retail software maker Shopify increases IPO ahead of expected listing

by The Canadian Press Posted May 19, 2015 2:19 pm MDT Last Updated May 19, 2015 at 5:02 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Retail software maker Shopify increases IPO ahead of expected listing OTTAWA – E-commerce software maker Shopify is boosting the amount of its initial public offering to US$123.2 million.According to regulatory filings, the Ottawa-based company plans to sell 7.7 million shares for $14 to $16 each.The higher IPO comes after Shopify disclosed earlier this year that it hoped to raise closer to $108 million.Earlier this month, Shopify launched an investor road show to offer a glimpse of their future prospects.The raised price suggests that investors expressed more interest than expected for the company’s future, which helps small- and medium-sized businesses launch online and mobile platforms to help sell their products.In documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday, Shopify said it could raise as much as $141.7 million when factoring in an extra 1.16 million voting share over-allotments.The filing also outlined the company’s plans to spend money raised through the IPO on further research and development for new products and services, as well as merchant support.Shopify is expected to list its shares later this week on the New York Stock Exchange and Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbols SHOP and SH, respectively.Regulatory filings show that Shopify lost $22.3 million last year compared to $4.8 million in 2013. Its revenue more than doubled to $105 million. read more

Syria other poorlyfunded crises to receive 100 million from UN emergency fund

Poorly-funded United Nations aid operations received a boost today when Valerie Amos, the UN’s humanitarian chief, announced the allocation of $100 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to boost relief work in twelve countries in need.The vast majority of the money – some $77.5 million – will be directed towards countries affected by the Syria crisis. Syria itself will receive the largest single allocation, at $30 million, with the number of people there who need humanitarian assistance snowballing from one million four years ago to over 12 million today.The remainder is to be spread between Lebanon, which receives $18 million, Jordan and Turkey, receiving $9 million each, Iraq, which is allocated $8 million, and Egypt, where $3.5 million will be channelled.“Despite critical funding gaps, humanitarian workers remain committed to helping every vulnerable Syrian they can,” said Ms. Amos, the UN’s Emergency Relief Coordinator. “This allocation from CERF will help ensure that they can continue their life-saving work.”The $100 million allocation is the first of two rounds of emergency humanitarian funding planned for release during 2015 with more directed towards support of relief efforts in countries where needs are high but financial support is low.Grants from CERF’s underfunded-emergencies window provide a temporary lifeline for people caught in crises where current donor contributions fall short but needs are extreme and major assistance is required. The long-running conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) continues to have disastrous effects and $14 million is allotted to supporting aid operations in DRC, which will receive the bulk of money at $9 million, with Burundi and Rwanda each receiving $2.5 million to provide urgent assistance for people displaced by violence and the vulnerable communities that host them.Humanitarian partners in Colombia, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, and Djibouti are also due to receive support to sustain long-standing, but critically underfunded humanitarian operations, including the delivery of food and basic health services.“We thank our donors who have already pledged $418 million for CERF in 2015. This underfunded emergencies allocation of $100 million from that pool will help millions of people who are caught in crises where the scale of needs has outpaced contributions,” said Ms. Amos.When CERF was established in 2006, global humanitarian appeals sought $6 billion. That amount has more than tripled to $19 billion. To help humanitarian partners keep pace, in both 2013 and 2014, the Fund allocated more than $175 million through its underfunded-emergencies window. CERF also provides rapid response funding for new or rapidly deteriorating emergencies and has allocated more than $3.7 billion for humanitarian agencies operating in 88 countries and territories since its inception. read more

Rights defenders must not be silenced says UN office urging Turkey to

“Human rights defenders must not be silenced,” Liz Throssell, spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), told a press briefing in Geneva.OHCHR has received reports that eight Turkish human rights defenders and two international experts were detained on the Büyükada Island near Istanbul on Wednesday, 5 July, while taking part in a training workshop on digital security and protection for human rights defenders. Their detention period has now been extended to seven days and they are reportedly being interrogated over allegations of “membership of an armed terrorist organisation,” noted Ms. Throssell. “We fear they are now at significant risk of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment,” she added.The detainees include Idil Eser Ilknur, the Director of Amnesty International Turkey; Ilknur Üstün of the Women’s Coalition; Veli Acu and Günal Kursun of the Human Rights Agenda Association; Nalan Erkem, Seyhmuz Özbekli and Özlem Dalkiran of Helsinki Citizens Assembly; and Nejat Tastan of the Equal Rights Watch Association. One Swedish and one German national, who facilitated the training, were also detained along with the owner of the hotel where the workshop was taking place.This new wave of detentions is “deeply worrying,” according to OHCHR, as it comes a month after the Chairperson of Amnesty International Turkey, Taner Kiliç, was arrested, along with 22 other lawyers. Mr. Kiliç and six others remain in custody. The Office is also extremely concerned about two other human rights defenders – Nuriye Gülmen, a university lecturer, and Semih Özakça, a school teacher – who went on hunger strike in March in protest against their arbitrary dismissal in the context of last year’s sweeping purges. “We call upon the Turkish Government to release and reinstate them in their jobs without delay, and to ensure adequate compensation for their unlawful arrest and dismissal,” said Ms. Throssell.OHCHR said that in the context of the state of emergency, the Government seems to have criminalized the legitimate exercise of the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and association, and freedom of opinion and expression, using emergency decrees that fail to meet international human rights standards. read more

Weather Eye We may get through the rest of June without really

first_imgSkies were mostly cloudy Saturday, with a few late-afternoon, widely scattered showers over a few parts of the county — mainly the foothills. Temperatures continued to run below the season normal. Look for more clouds today through Tuesday with scattered showers and cool conditions. Expect more snow in the higher elevations, so if you are going hiking or camping in the mountains, factor that in. It will be chilly.Last week, I was thinking we could see a good warm-up midweek, but forecast models took that away and keep us under a north-to-northwest flow. Not all bad, but not like we had the past two weeks or so. In fact, we may get through the rest of June without any really hot weather.Fine with me.Rainfall amounts Thursday and Friday generally were a quarter to a half-inch around Clark County. Of course the foothills received more, with more than an inch reported. Officially through 5 p.m. Saturday, Vancouver had received 0.28 of an inch of rain so far this month. That is 0.70 of an inch below average.I don’t expect any heavy rain the next few days. Some areas had intense rain flooding local streets late last week. I was caught under one such heavy downpour, and those raindrops must have been the size of half-dollars and bounced three feet off the ground. Quite a spectacle.My hanging strawberry basket has berries that are turning red thanks to the mild weather and a few welcome sunbursts. I can hardly wait.last_img read more

Peace Cross Wins in Supreme Court

first_imgBy Mark F. Gray, Special to the AFRO, mgray@afro.comThe United States Supreme Court ruled that the World War I Memorial Peace Cross in Bladensburg, Md., can remain on public grounds in Prince George’s County. In a decisive 7-2 ruling, the Justices concluded that it was legal for the religious monument that honors veterans to remain in place in the Washington, D.C. suburb.The Peace Cross was commissioned in 1919 by the American Legion of Hyattsville. It had recently come under scrutiny by anti-religious groups, such as the American Humanist Association and three residents who live near the memorial. The case began as a lawsuit by three people who live near the cross and the District of Columbia-based group that includes atheists and agnostics, all of whom felt the memorial should be relocated to private property or changed to a non religious symbol.The Supreme Court ruled that the Bladensburg WWI Memorial, also known as the Peace Cross, will remain in place, after constitutional concerns surrounding the shape of the memorial and its religious undertones. (Courtesy Photo)“We are pleased with today’s Supreme Court ruling that the Bladensburg World War I Memorial, also known as the Peace Cross, will be able to remain in place,” said Prince George’s County Executive Alsobrooks in a statement. “This monument is not only a memorial for the sacrifices made by our military members in World War I, but is also a symbol to honor our veterans and all those who have given their lives in service to our county, state, and nation. We are Prince George’s proud to have the largest population of military veterans in the state of Maryland, and we are proud that this monument will continue to be a symbol to honor the men and women who have served our Nation.”This was a case being closely monitored because of how it could’ve legally impacted other monuments located on public property around the country. Defenders of the cross in Bladensburg, a suburb of the nation’s capital, had argued that a ruling against them could doom hundreds of war memorials that use religious symbols to commemorate soldiers who died. However, this Supreme Court decision helps preserve landmarks in public spaces and is looked upon as a victory for the area’s past and future of honoring fallen soldiers, allowing municipalities to continue using religious symbolism.The memorial in Bladensburg has been a traditional gathering spot for residents and visitors during holiday celebrations such as Memorial Day, Independence Day (4th of July) and Veterans Day for 94 years. After its commissioning in 1919, it was erected in 1925, and earned its place on the National Register of Historic Places on Sept. 8, 2015.  However, there is a covering over the top of the concrete crucifix signalling it needs repairs which have been delayed because of this litigation.“It’s important to residents of Prince George’s County because it honors heroes who served in World War I who are from our community,” Bladensburg Mayor Takisha James told the {Associated Press}. “So regardless of the shape of it, it was for their honor, and we don’t want to see it coming down.” Justices Neil Gorsuch and Clarence Thomas, who wrote in favor of the ruling, said they would have never heard the lawsuit before the court. Gorsuch, the newest Justice who was appointed by President Donald J. Trump, cited how municipal buildings such as the Supreme Court are decorated with religious symbols.In his position Gorsuch wrote, “in a large and diverse country, offense can be easily found” and the answer shouldn’t be a lawsuit.”  The only two justices who sided with the plaintiffs in the suit were President Barack Obama appointee Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.last_img read more

Pamboridis issues pledge to resolve staffing problems at Paphos and Polis

first_imgHealth Minister Giorgos Pamboridis said on Monday he would soon announce decisions aimed at alleviating problems at the Paphos and Polis Chrysochous hospitals.Following his visit on Monday to the two hospitals, which face serious understaffing problems among other issues, Pamboridis said that he heard the opinions of the directors and doctors, and that he would make an announcement “within the day or tomorrow”.Both the Paphos and Polis hospitals have been plagued with problems, and the health ministry has been pressured to find solutions, mainly to the understaffing.The government had proposed that Paphos hospital’s general practitioners (GP) and cardiologists also examined patients at Polis but this was not well received by the physicians who said that this would only exacerbate the understaffing problem. Doctors called for the hiring of more medical staff at Polis, and warned on Sunday of measures if they were forced to go to there.“Within the day or tomorrow the latest, the decisions of the ministry will be announced on the issue of resolving the staffing problems at the Polis hospital, but also those at some clinics in the Paphos general hospital,” Pamboridis said.The aim is to find solutions promptly, he said, so that the Polis inpatient ward is reopened, but to also solve problems faced in Paphos.“Our intention is to reopen the inpatient ward with additional GPs and a cardiologist,” Pamboridis said.Polis mayor Angelos Odysseos gave Pamboridis a letter with the requests of residents in the area who staged a protest outside the hospital last week. Among others, the residents are calling on the minister to intervene so that Polis hospital is adequately manned by medical and other staff, and for the reopening of the inpatient ward. They also called on the health ministry to look into the weaknesses observed at the radiology department and the hospital’s lab.Odysseos also stressed the need to hire more ambulance drivers.Residents also gathered outside the Polis hospital on Monday to voice their opposition to what they called the government’s neglect of their hospital, which serves around 25 communities.Marianna Kouppari who lives in Polis, said that the hospital must not be allowed to close as it serves hundreds of people. “The distance to Paphos hospital is huge and lives will be endangered,” she said.Pamboridis told state broadcaster CyBC earlier in the day, that soon, he would submit to the heads of the parliamentary political parties two bills, one on hospital autonomy, the other on the National Health Scheme (NHS). He added that the NHS would introduce a single health sector market between the private and public arenas.Last week, political leaders reached a consensus during their meeting with President Nicos Anastasiades as to how to proceed with the NHS. They were also presented with the government’s proposal which includes a road map for the implementation of the NHS. The meeting was part of the president’s initiative to steer steps leading up to the implementation of a health system. You May LikeInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
