JANAAC Working with Labs to Attain Export Standard

first_imgRelatedArchives Critical to Jamaica’s History RelatedJANAAC Working with Labs to Attain Export Standard FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Jamaica National Agency for Accreditation (JANAAC) is working assiduously to implement a strategy to ensure that a number of Jamaican laboratories are accredited according to the standard required by food exporters to the United States by 2013. “This requires the utmost urgency as currently, there is no accredited food testing laboratory in Jamaica,” said State Ministerin the Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Sharon Ffolkes-Abrahams. She was making her contribution to the 2012/13 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives, on July 18, under the theme: ‘On a Mission to Achieve Economic Empowerment in this Year of Jubilee’.  Mrs. Ffolkes-Abrahamssaid that to this end, the JANAAC has: identified the scope of tests that need to be done on food products for export to the US; identified laboratories currently involved in testing food for exporters; conducted a readiness for accreditation survey on these laboratories, and introduced a cost sharing mechanism in which JANAAC will bear about 50 per cent of the cost of accreditation. To date, five food testing laboratories have applied for accreditation and are going through the process, which takes between seven to 24 months, depending on the readiness of the laboratory, the State Minister said. She also informed that the JANAAC has been working with the CARICOM Regional Organisation for Standard and Quality (CROSQ) and the Trinidad and Tobago Laboratory Accreditation Service (TTLABS), to develop the Caribbean Co-operation in Accreditation (CCA). This entity, which is a regional accreditation mechanism for facilitating trade in the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME), was approved by the Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED) at its 13th Meeting in June 2010, the State Minister noted. She pointed out that the formation of the CCA is expected to help minimise Technical Barriers to Trade (TBTs) between the different islands in the CSME and in facilitating cost effective accreditation solutions for the region. In the meantime, the State Minister also informed that the fines for food safety breaches have increased due to repeated violations and contraventions of the regulations governing processed foods. Under the Standards Act, fines have been increased from $500,000 to a maximum of $3 million, and/or imprisonment for a term of 12 months. Additionally, under the Processed Foods Act, fines have increased from $200,000 to $3 million, and/or imprisonment for a term of 12 months. “We anticipate that these amendments will act as a more effective deterrent to food safety violations,” she said.

Govt Implementing Measures to Boost Creative Industries

first_imgBy Chris Patterson, JISReporter RelatedAccreditation Crucial to Country’s Competitiveness – State Minister Ffolkes Abrahams Advertisements Govt Implementing Measures to Boost Creative Industries CommerceJune 22, 2013Written by: Chris Patterson RelatedMinister Hylton Sets Record Straight on Logistics Hub RelatedKingstOOn Gets Underway with Major Local and Int’l Animators FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Anthony Hylton, has reiterated the Government’s commitment to implementing the required framework to strengthen the creative industries, including the animation sector.Speaking at a panel discussion during yesterday’s (June 20) opening of the KingstOOn animation conference and film festival at the University of the West Indies’ (UWI) Mona campus, Mr. Hylton said critical to this feat is the re-examination of legislation, policies, and programmes that will bolster industries.One such policy, he said, is the Micro, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise (MSME) and Entrepreneurship Policy, now before Parliament, which is intended to facilitate growth and strengthen the role of entrepreneurs.Outlining other measures being undertaken, Minister Hylton said that the Factories Corporation of Jamaica (FCJ) is looking at various locations to set up incubators, which will “benefit the creative sector, micro enterprise in general and certainly the animation sector.”The Minister noted that apart from the framework that the Government will implement, players within the industry need to ensure that their business plans are properly structured in order to access the necessary financing.World Bank representative to Jamaica, Giorgio Valentini, in noting the potential of the local animation industry said that Jamaicans need to “believe in themselves and market themselves.”“The World Bank is here to provide Jamaica with supporting mechanisms to stimulate innovation and creativity within the sector,” he pointed out.Executive Director of Reel Rock GSW Animation, Wayne Sinclair, in his contribution, stated that animation can provide developing nations with a competitive advantage over other countries.“The key for us is to execute a cohesive approach to the development of the industry,” he said.The discussion session on the topic: ‘Challenges and Opportunities in the Animation Industry: how should Jamaica position itself?’ was moderated by Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Jamaica Information Service (JIS), Donna Marie Rowe.Other panellist included Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Montreal-based ToonBoom Animation, Joan Vogelesang; Managing Director of the Gleaner Company, Christopher Barnes; Director at Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication (CARIMAC), Professor Hopeton Dunn, along with other players in the international animation arena.The two-day conference and film festival, being held at the University of the West Indies, Mona campus, is designed to serve as a catalyst for the various efforts to develop the animation industry, and attract investors.It also seeks to give visibility to the pool of talented young Jamaicans and regional artists; identify key challenges in the industry, and examine feasible solutions, which will allow Jamaica to be part of the global network for outsourcing and creative content.KingstOOn is organised by the Government in partnership with the World Bank, the Canadian High Commission, and JAMPRO.last_img read more

International students give rise to specialized housing industry

first_imgHomeNewsCity CouncilInternational students give rise to specialized housing industry Jul. 15, 2019 at 6:30 amCity CouncilEducationFeaturedGovernmentNewsReal EstateInternational students give rise to specialized housing industryGuest Author2 years agoapartments.comInternational Education Counseling CenterKeryssa RobinsonSanta Monica CollegeSavas SirickiuclaZuma Housing By Blake AtwellIstanbul, Turkey native Savas Siricki came to Los Angeles in 2008 with plans to study English at UCLA for five months. Upon arriving to Los Angeles’ westside, Siricki faced one major issue: housing. He couldn’t secure a reasonably priced off-campus UCLA apartment and quickly became sick of the culture within West Los Angeles’ student housing system. With no way to communicate his housing needs or get them resolved, Siricki founded a company designed to function as a bridge between students and landlords. Nearly 12 years later, Zuma Housing stands as the westside’s largest student housing provider. With offices in both Los Angeles and Istanbul, Siricki’s company employees around 50 people. The young entrepreneur constructed a housing company built around the needs of students, with the motivation to help other international students like himself.    Despite Siricki’s efforts, international students attending schools such as UCLA and Santa Monica College (SMC) continually struggle to find housing across the city’s westside. Siricki attributes these difficulties to the expectations of incoming students, many of whom move to Los Angeles with very high standards.The market conditions in Santa Monica and Westwood – for the prices students are looking for – don’t always reflect these expectations. Bridge-makers between students and landlords, including Zuma, SMC’s International Education Counseling Center and Apartments.com, have run into issues assisting their clients as a result.“It’s difficult to explain to each side what they need to do and how they need to get the best benefits out of this business,” Siricki said.Keryssa Robinson, the manager of Apartments.com’s new Santa Monica retail store, encounters similar difficulties.“How expensive it is, sometimes [students] don’t realize it,” Robinson said.In addition to high pricing, Robinson’s found language and transportation to be other recurring roadblocks for students. These issues are especially present in the circumstances of international students with plans to attend SMC.“Sometimes that traffic up [near Westwood] getting towards the 405 can be quite challenging even though on paper it will say three miles. Three miles can mean 30 minutes.”SMC, which holds more than 3,000 students from over 110 countries, works through many of the same challenges in assisting the housing needs of their international students. Teresa Morris, a Student Services Specialist at SMC’s International Education Counseling Center, finds most international students who come to SMC don’t have Social Security Numbers or credit histories.To support the students, she provides international students with a letter that explains to the housing provider that they are not allowed to enter the country without a minimum financial guarantees.“Each student must show proof of adequate funding before they may be issued an I-20 from Santa Monica College’s International Education Department and an F-1 Visa from the American consulate or Embassy in their home country,” Morris said. “Many housing managers will accept this letter in lieu of the SSN or credit history.”Morris agrees with Siricki and Robinson in describing the West Los Angeles housing market as “expensive,” to say the least. To work around the high prices, Morris encourages some students to pursue a niche as an “empty nester,” a strategy that includes a veteran Santa Monica resident allowing students into their home.“The new students need safe, close accommodations and the empty nesters need the extra cash, and often enjoy having young people in the house again, so it works out for everyone,” Morris said.Neither Apartments.com or SMC work directly with Siricki’s Zuma Housing. Morris frequently directs her students to homestay agencies, since lease terms are typically flexible. SMC doesn’t have school-sponsored housing. On the other hand, departments at four-year universities, like UCLA’s International Student Department, do sponsor outside agencies. Zuma has been sponsored by UCLA’s International Student Department since 2013.Siricki describes his company as an “experience provider” that secures comfortable living for students. As a former international student himself, Siricki knows how it feels to scramble for last-second housing in West Los Angeles. He decided to do something about it, in hopes of changing student housing culture. Through Zuma Housing, along with the efforts of housing aids like Apartments.com and SMC’s International Education Counseling Center, Siricki can only hope international students are able to reap the benefits.Tags :apartments.comInternational Education Counseling CenterKeryssa RobinsonSanta Monica CollegeSavas SirickiuclaZuma Housingshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentKnow Before You Go – Monday, July 15, 2019Slow progress for earthquake safety repairsYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall8 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press18 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson18 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter18 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor18 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press18 hours agolast_img read more

Canada’s David Marcus Makes Aachen Debut

first_img Horse Sport Enews More from Horse Sport:Christilot Boylen Retires From Team SportAfter an exemplary career as one of Canada’s top Dressage riders, seven-time Olympian Christilot Boylen has announced her retirement from team competition.2020 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair CancelledFor only the second time in its history, The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair has been cancelled but plans are being made for some virtual competitions.Royal Agricultural Winter Fair Statement on 2020 EventAs the Province of Ontario starts to reopen, The Royal’s Board and staff will adhere to all recommendations put forward by government and health officials.Government Financial Assistance for Ontario FarmersOntario Equestrian has recently released this update of several financial assistance packages available, including those for farm business. We’ll send you our regular newsletter and include you in our monthly giveaways. PLUS, you’ll receive our exclusive Rider Fitness digital edition with 15 exercises for more effective riding. Canadian Olympian David Marcus of Campbellville, ON, made his debut at the prestigious CDIO5* Aachen, Germany, held July 11 to 20.Marcus was the sole Canadian representative invited to contest the CDIO5* division at Aachen. Riding Chrevi’s Capital for owner Deborah Miculinic Kinzinger, Marcus placed 28th in Thursday’s Grand Prix from an international starting field of 39 entries. The five-member panel of international judges awarded Marcus a score of 69.18%. The Grand Prix was won by Germany’s Matthias Alexander Rath, who scored 82.30% riding the illustrious Totilas while Helen Langehanenberg, also of Germany, took second place with 81.22% aboard Damon Hill NRW. Adelinde Cornelissen of The Netherlands was the only other rider to break the 80% barrier, earning a score of 80.98% to take third place with the 17-year-old Jerich Parzival.“I was really happy with my ride in the Grand Prix,” said Marcus, 33. “Every day Capital been getting a little bit better since he arrived here in Germany, and I thought the Grand Prix was one of the better tests that I have had with him.”Having qualified to move forward to the Grand Prix Special on Saturday, July 19, Marcus pushed for more brilliance from Chrevi’s Capital, a 14-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding (Chrevi’s Cavallo x Weinberg). As a result, a mistake in the passage-piaffe tour proved costly, with the pair being awarded a score of 67.84% for 26th place in the final standings. Rath and Totilas again emerged victorious with a score of 84.52%, followed by reigning Olympic champions Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro of Great Britain with 83.15% and Langehanenberg and Damon Hill NRW in third with 82.07%.“Overall, I was really happy with the Grand Prix Special,” explained Marcus. “After watching the video of my Grand Prix test, I felt that I had room to take risks and I got a little bit too eager in the Grand Prix Special. I did take risks and pushed him for maximum, but, unfortunately, had a mistake which brought me down in the final placings. Having said that, when I watched the playback, I think the overall quality is the best it’s ever been.”While Marcus competed in Europe in the lead-up to the 2012 Olympic Games in London, this marked his debut at CDIO5* Aachen, considered by many to be the best equestrian competition in the world.“I definitely feel privileged to be here representing Canada,” said Marcus of the experience. “It’s been great, and it is an amazing horse show. It’s been a very exciting week.”Competing at Aachen is part of Marcus’s preparation for the upcoming 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games taking place in Normandy, France, from August 23 to September 7.“I think it was the right decision to come here; I really wanted to have an experience with Capital in a venue such as this with the quality of competition that is here,” said Marcus. “This division is filled with the top riders in the world, and I feel very fortunate to be within that group. I am really happy that we came, and I’ve been very happy with how Capital has handled himself here.“Unfortunately, Deborah wasn’t able to join us at this show due to her son’s wedding, but we’ve been in communication throughout the week and I have really appreciated her support,” continued Marcus.While disappointed to miss seeing Chrevi’s Capital compete in Aachen, owner Miculinic Kinzinger noted, “It is an honour that David and Capital were invited to compete in the CDIO5* division at Aachen. It was unfortunate that they had a mistake in the Grand Prix Special, but I applaud David for taking a chance; if it had worked, it would have been a phenomenal test. You don’t win medals by playing it safe!”Following CDIO5* Aachen, Marcus and Chrevi’s Capital will compete at CDI3* Verden, also in Germany, from August 6 to 10. The pair is currently based in Germany with renowned trainer, Jean Bemelmans while Marcus’s own personal trainer, Oded Shimoni, flies back and forth from his base in Wellington, FL, to provide his expertise. Both Shimoni and Marcus’s partner, Australian grand prix rider Nicholas Fyffe, were on hand to support Marcus at CDIO5* Aachen.Marcus first made his grand prix debut at the beginning of 2012 and, six short months later, was competing at the 2012 London Olympic Games. In 2013, he topped the North American World Cup League. The 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games will mark his world championship debut.

The price was reduced to $4.9 million a month later, and in July the Observer reported that a buyer was in contract for the pad.The three-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home looks outward to 72nd Street and comes with a private elevator vestibule and wood-burning fireplace. The co-op also has a staff room and 31-foot living room.ADVERTISEMENTRadziwill’s second of three husbands was Poland’s Prince Stanislas Radzwill, and together they had two children. (Their son Anthony died in 1999.) Born as Caroline Lee Bouvier, she tried her hand at a litany of careers — from acting to interior design, according to her New York Times obituary. She died in February at the age of 85.Brown Harris Stevens’ Leslie Coleman and Mary Rutherford had the listing.
