Sustained Growth Lies in Strength of MSME Sector – Minister Hylton

first_imgStory Highlights The Government continues to place significant emphasis on reforming the sector in an effort to promote entrepreneurship and remove barriers hindering the establishment of small businesses. The Minister was speaking at the Magna Rewards 10th Anniversary celebration dinner on October 15 at the Terra Nova Hotel, St. Andrew. The Security of Interest in Personal Property Act will increase access to credit by allowing businesses to use assets such as intellectual property for collateral. Industry, Investment and Commerce Minister, Hon. Anthony Hylton, says the sustained growth and development of the local economy lies in the strength of the Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (MSME) sector.He notes that, as such, the Government continues to place significant emphasis on reforming the sector in an effort to promote entrepreneurship and remove barriers hindering the establishment of small businesses.The Minister, who was speaking at the Magna Rewards 10th Anniversary celebration dinner on October 15 at the Terra Nova Hotel, St. Andrew, said the recently passed MSME and Entrepreneurship Policy aims to establish the framework for addressing some of the impediments to small enterprise development.“Entrepreneurship and innovation will play a critical role in transforming the local economy into one that is significantly more dynamic and robust, and one which offers growth opportunities for business enterprises,” he stated.Other key policies, as part of the Government’s support for the sector, include the Security of Interest in Personal Property Act, which will increase access to credit by allowing businesses to use assets such as intellectual property for collateral.Other notable improvements scheduled to come on stream include: the Insolvency Act, which will result in a reduction in the cost of failure in business, by absorbing much of the start-up risk; and the Trade Marks Act, geared at improving the business and commercial environments for the growth of creative industries.In the meantime, the Minister congratulated Magna Rewards on its 10th anniversary, noting that “10 years in business and 10 years of providing service to the Jamaican consumer is a solid and noteworthy milestone”.“(I commend you for being) Jamaica’s first loyalty programme, for being a trailblazer on the Jamaican business landscape and for adding value to the (spending power) of the Jamaican consumer,” he stated.Executive Vice President at the Bank of Nova Scotia Jamaica Limited., Wayne Powell, said while he was a “doubting Thomas” when Magna first approached the bank 10 years ago, he must now admit that the partnership “is the greatest thing to happen to Scotia Bank for many years”.“When we examine the benefits that Magna has passed on to our customers, we are extremely proud of our relations with Magna,” he stated.Chief Operating Officer, Bashco Trading Company, Elias Azan, also added to the praises, noting that collaboration with Magna was a good decision for his company. “Our customers absolutely love it, as it makes such a big difference to them, especially in today’s economy,” he said.General Manager, Magna Rewards Caribbean, Trevor Clarke, said over the years, he has seen many loyalty programmes come and go, but the sustained success of Magna “is a testament to the strong team and partners that we have on the programme”.He noted that the company started in Jamaica in 2003, with only a handful of partners, but 10 years later, that number has grown to over 70 partners with more than 200 locations islandwide.“Today, Magna has over 500,000 customers and card holders in Jamaica, who annually swipe their Magna cards five million times, and that equates to sales of over $20 billion here in Jamaica, every year,” he informed.He said the company issued over $227 million in vouchers to card holders in 2012 and, as it looks forward to the next 10 years, the team will continue to look for ways to improve the programme, to enhance the value to its customers and merchants.Magna Rewards is a Barbadian-based electronic loyalty programme designed to reward loyal customers for shopping at partnering companies. The programme enlists retail partners from a number of industries, including finance, insurance, supermarkets, pharmacies, security and services, and motor vehicle services.last_img read more

La délégation du comité Halifax 2014 respecte son budget

first_img lancer la candidature internationale du Canada aux Jeux du Commonwealth de 2014 à Halifax; présenter Halifax au plus grand nombre possible de délégués de la Fédération des Jeux du Commonwealth et de l’Association des Jeux du Commonwealth (AJC); apprendre le plus possible dans le cadre du programme des observateurs de Melbourne 2006. Les délégués aux Jeux de Melbourne de 2006 ont rencontré de nombreux représentants de l’Association des Jeux du Commonwealth, de la Fédération des Jeux du Commonwealth, de nombreux organismes sportifs nationaux et internationaux du Commonwealth, ainsi que des officiels d’équipe et des athlètes, dans un but commun, c’est-à-dire celui de leur présenter Halifax ainsi que les aspects positifs de la candidature d’Halifax aux Jeux du Commonwealth de 2014. « La présence du comité Halifax 2014 aux Jeux du Commonwealth de 2006 a grandement contribué à nous faire connaître. Avant ces Jeux, les gens de la communauté sportive internationale connaissaient très peu Halifax », a souligné M. Logan. « Tout le monde sait où se situent les villes de Calgary, Edmonton, Victoria et Vancouver parce que ces villes ont accueilli les Jeux du Commonwealth et les Jeux Olympiques. » Le comité Halifax 2014 a effectué des présentations formelles à la fois au Bureau exécutif de la Fédération des Jeux du Commonwealth et à l’Assemblée générale de l’AJC. Les délégués de l’AJC sont les délégués votants des 71 nations et territoires du Commonwealth. Les délégués qui ont participé au programme des observateurs de Melbourne 2004 ont assisté à des séances d’information sur une variété de sujets couvrant chacun des aspects de la planification et de la réalisation de jeux internationaux multisports, par exemple le côté technique des installations sportives, les services des médias, les transports, les cérémonies, la diffusion, les programmes éducatifs, la restauration et même la gestion des déchets. Les délégués d’Halifax ont obtenu des renseignements utiles qui aideront le comité Halifax 2014 à présenter le meilleur dossier de candidature possible en 2007. Au moment du voyage, l’équipe Halifax 2014 était en phase de formation. Sans budget complet pour la candidature internationale et sans plan stratégique complet, l’équipe de mise en candidature s’est engagée à traiter ce voyage comme un événement distinct. Tout investissement futur du comité Halifax 2014 sera considéré comme faisant partie de son plan stratégique et de son budget pour la candidature internationale. Les Jeux du Commonwealth sont un événement sportif et culturel d’envergure internationale qui se déroule tous les quatre ans avec des athlètes en provenance des 71 pays et territoires du Commonwealth. En décembre 2005, la ville d’Halifax a été retenue comme ville candidate du Canada aux Jeux du Commonwealth de 2014. Le comité Halifax 2014 est en compétition avec la ville de Glasgow, en Écosse, et la ville d’Abuja, au Nigeria. Il se concentre à l’heure actuelle sur ses efforts pour préparer et remporter la candidature internationale, qui sera décernée par la Fédération de Jeux du Commonwealth le 9 novembre 2007 au Sri Lanka. Le budget du voyage du comité de mise en candidature Halifax 2014 à Melbourne, en Australie, dans le cadre des Jeux du Commonwealth de 2006 (du 15 au 26 mars) a bien été respecté. « En mars, nous nous sommes engagés à publier les chiffres définitifs relatifs à la participation de la délégation du comité Halifax 2014 aux Jeux de Melbourne, et je suis heureux de constater que ces coûts sont de 47 372 $ de moins que prévu, soit un total de 454 228 $ », a affirmé le directeur général, Scott Logan. « L’équipe Halifax 2014 s’engage à être financièrement responsable et nous avons démontré encore une fois nous pouvons l’être tout en atteignant nos objectifs. » Le budget du voyage aux Jeux de Melbourne comprend quatre catégories principales : le déplacement et l’hébergement à 164 816 $; la promotion, les présentations, le divertissement et l’hospitalité à 242 161 $; la location de bureaux et d’équipement, ainsi que les opérations à 21 836 $; et le programme des observateurs à 25 415 $. Il s’agit de la deuxième fois que le comité Halifax 2014 respecte son budget. La phase de mise en candidature au niveau national avait été prévue à 750 000 $, mais a seulement coûté 733 000 $.

More than 10000 Mauritanians return home from Senegal with UN help

29 April 2009The number of Mauritanian refugees that have returned home from years of exile in Senegal under a programme launched by the United Nations refugee agency last year has now topped 10,000. Amath Thioye was named the 10,000th returnee and was part of a convoy carrying 360 Mauritanians that arrived in the town of Boghé in southwest Brakna province last week, according to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).“I am deeply grateful to everyone who made it possible for me and my family to return home today,” said the emotional 55-year-old, who had spent more than two decades as a refugee in Senegal.Tens of thousands of Mauritanians fled to Senegal and Mali following ethnic violence that erupted in 1989 amid a long-standing dispute between Mauritania and Senegal over the location of their common border.Most of the refugees from Mauritania live in makeshift settlements along a 600-kilometre stretch of the Senegal River Valley, bordering Mauritania. In Mali, most of the refugees are settled in areas close to the border with Mauritania.Last week’s convoy was the 44th organized by UNHCR since it launched its repatriation programme for thousands of Mauritanians in January 2008. The agency is also assisting with reintegration programmes for the returnees, including income-generation and water projects. read more

In a statement, the UN chief expressed hope that recent positive developments, in particular the important summits between the leaders of North Korea, officially known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and South Korea (officially the Republic of Korea), and between North Korea and the United States, will contribute to “an atmosphere conducive to advancing sustainable peace and complete and verifiable denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula in accordance with relevant Security Council resolutions.”The conversation with Ri Yong Ho took place the day after the US Secretary of State chaired a ministerial level Security Council meeting on North Korea.During that meeting, Mike Pompeo said that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and President Donald Trump “share a common, personal understanding of what must take place” to transform relations between the two countries.The Secretary-General pledged his “commitment and readiness of the United Nations system to further assist the parties in any way they deem appropriate.” read more

Day center becomes Vancouver Navigation Center

first_imgVancouver’s day center has a new name to go with its new look. The day-use facility for homeless, located in the former Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife building, will be known as the Vancouver Navigation Center.“Navigation Center is a more up-and-coming way to help folks who are homeless, it helps them navigate from the streets to housing services,” said Peggy Sheehan, Vancouver’s community and economic development programs manager.The day center will use 5,000 square feet of the 26,578-square-foot building at 2018 Grand Blvd., purchased by the city for $4.3 million last year.Construction got underway three weeks ago, and things are progressing unusually quickly for a project of this size.Michael Parshall, principal with Woodblock Architecture, attributes the speed to unwavering support from community partners. The Portland-based firm began drawing plans earlier this summer and has donated about $50,000 in services so far.Now, most of the plumbing and stud work is completed for six new showers and bathrooms, as well as a laundry facility that will feature six sets of washers and dryers.“Most of our work is actually in this area,” said Kris Simensen, director of construction for James E. John, which is providing pro bono construction services.last_img read more

Mourinho compares Lukakus goal drought to a bottle of ketchup

first_imgJose Mourinho used an old metaphor of Cristiano Ronaldo’s in describing Romelu Lukaku‘s current struggles in front of goal for Manchester UnitedThe Belgian striker has found the net only four times in 13 appearances for United and was benched by Mourinho in their latest Premier League encounter against his old club Everton.Following his 25-minute cameo in Sunday’s 2-1 win at Old Trafford, Lukaku has now failed to score in his last nine matches for United.But Mourinho remains unconcerned and reckons that the goals will soon come flooding out for Lukaku – just like shaking a ketchup bottle.“I think one of the best scorers in football had funny words about it,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.“It was when Cristiano Ronaldo was speaking about the ketchup bottle and when you [shake it]. The goals are coming and coming and coming.Romelu Lukaku, Serie A, Inter MilanCapello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.“I believe with Lukaku that this will happen, but the reality is that, at this moment, it’s not happening.“There have been lots of matches in which he’s not scored a goal, and not just scoring but also the performances, the happiness in the performances, I think is the problem.“But he’s a good player, a good boy, and I think the best way to do it is to just keep working and the moment will arrive.”Ronaldo once used the ketchup bottle metaphor in 2010, where he was going through his own goal drought ahead of that summer’s World Cup in South Africa.The Portuguese star explained at the time that goals are like “ketchup – when it comes out (of the bottle) it all comes out at once”.last_img read more

Nothing Less Than Nixonian Democrats React To Comey Firing

first_img Share Eric Thayer/Getty ImagesSenate Judiciary Committee member Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., questions FBI Director James Comey during an oversight hearing on May 3. Leahy said on Tuesday that Comey’s firing was “nothing less than NixonianUpdated at 11:00 p.m. ETFor months, Democrats in Congress have criticized and questioned FBI Director James Comey about his handling of last year’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.Still, they’ve met President Trump’s surprising Tuesday evening decision to fire Comey with near-universal outrage.The White House and the Justice Department cited Comey’s ineffective leadership, but the general gist of Democratic reaction: Trump’s decision should be viewed not in light of Comey’s past missteps but instead in the context of the FBI’s ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. election and the Trump transition team’s possible ties to Russia.“The first question the administration has to answer is, why now?” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer at a hastily arranged Capitol press conference. “If the administration had objections to the way Director Comey handled the Clinton investigation, they had those objections the minute the president got into office. But they didn’t fire him then. Why did it happen today?”Late on Tuesday, Trump replied on Twitter, noting that Schumer himself had questioned Comey’s fitness for the job in comments just prior to the election.Pointing to the ongoing House and Senate Intelligence committees’ Russia investigations, as well as the FBI’s probe, Schumer asked, “Were these investigations getting too close to home for the president?”In near-unanimity, Democrats are calling for a special prosecutor to take charge of the FBI’s investigation, which Comey made public earlier this year when testifying in front of the House Intelligence Committee.“If Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein does not appoint an independent special prosecutor, every American will rightly suspect that the decision to fire Director Comey was part of a cover-up,” said Schumer.(Rosenstein is in charge of the Department of Justice’s Russia probe, since Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the investigation.)“This is nothing less than Nixonian,” said Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy, a longtime senior Judiciary Committee member, in a statement. “The president’s action, and the way it has been handled, is shocking. No one should accept President Trump’s absurd justification that he is now concerned that FBI Director Comey treated Secretary Clinton unfairly.“Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein now has no choice but to appoint a Special Counsel. His integrity, and the integrity of the entire Justice Department, are at stake,” said Leahy. “There simply is no avoiding the compelling fact that this cascading situation demands the prompt appointment of an independent Special Counsel to pick up the pieces of these investigations.”One key Republican is voicing concerns as well. North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement, “I am troubled by the timing and reasoning of Director Comey’s termination. I have found Director Comey to be a public servant of the highest order, and his dismissal further confuses an already difficult investigation by the Committee.“Director Comey has been more forthcoming with information than any FBI Director I can recall in my tenure on the congressional intelligence committees,” Burr added.Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse, who chairs the Judiciary Committee’s Oversight Subcommittee, also said in a statement that “the timing of this firing is very troubling” and that “the loss of an honorable public servant is a loss for the nation.”But other high-profile Republicans are backing Trump.Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Republican who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, says Comey’s actions “have prompted concern from across the political spectrum and from career law enforcement experts.”“The handling of the Clinton email investigation is a clear example of how Comey’s decisions have called into question the trust and political independence of the FBI,” Grassley said in a statement. “In my efforts to get answers, the FBI, under Comey’s leadership, has been slow or failed to provide information that Comey himself pledged to provide.”Earlier Tuesday, Comey sent a letter to the Judiciary Committee correcting testimony he gave last week, in which he misstated key details about the emails discovered on former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner’s personal computer, which prompted Comey to send his October letter.California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who blasted Comey during that hearing, was notably much more muted than her fellow Democrats Tuesday night. “President Trump called me at 5:30 p.m. and indicated he would be removing Director Comey, saying the FBI needed a change,” Feinstein said in a statement. “The next FBI director must be strong and independent and will receive a fair hearing in the Judiciary Committee.”Copyright 2017 NPR.

Rust 128 is here with global allocators nonZero types and more

first_imgThe Rust team has announced a new version of their popular programming language. Mozilla’s Rust system programming language has always been focused on safety, speed, and concurrency. This release adds more power to these features. Rust 1.28 provides more flexibility and ease to memory allocation with global allocators and NonZero types. Global allocators Global allocators allow a developer to define the memory allocation system used by a Rust program.  Previously, Rust did not allow changing the way memory is obtained, which prevented some use cases. With Rust 1.28, the #[global_allocator] attribute is stable. This attribute will allow Rust programs to set their allocator to the system allocator, as well as define new allocators by implementing the GlobalAlloc trait. Better error message formatting Rust’s compiler has traditionally provided verbose and explicit error messages, along with suggestions for how to fix the problem.  Rust 1.28 introduces more detailed notes about why some error conditions arise. The entire list of formatting changes is available on Github. Library stabilizations NonZero types are now a stable addition to the language. NonZero number types are wrappers around the standard unsigned integer types: NonZeroU8, NonZeroU16, NonZeroU32, NonZeroU64, NonZeroU128, and NonZeroUsize. This provides easier to anticipate memory allocations and optimize program data placement. A number of other libraries have also been stabilized; you can see the more detailed release notes for full details. Cargo features Rust’s cargo utility no longer lets users publish crates with build scripts that modify the src directory for an application. This eliminates bugs during the compilation process. For more detailed release notes along with code snippets, you can read the Rust Language blog.

Jetstar announced yesterday it will expand its trans Tasman operations with new direct A320 services from Melbourne and Cairns to Auckland. The new flights will add an extra 92,000 seats between Australia and New Zealand each year, growing Jetstar’s trans Tasman capacity by over 20 per cent.Tourism to Melbourne, Cairns and Auckland will benefit from the added flights, Jetstar chief executive Bruce Buchanan said.“We can certainly see the possibilities for growing inbound and outbound travel demand between Auckland, Queenstown and Melbourne, and similarly we see opportunities to grow traffic between Auckland, Cairns and Asia,” Auckland Airport’s chief executive Simon Moutter said.center_img Source = e-Travel Blackboard: G.A Jetstar is also set to increase its flights from Auckland to Wellington, growing its total New Zealand domestic operations to 84 weekly return flights by the end of the year.last_img read more
