Chief Public Health Inspector, Elsa Somerville, in her report at the monthly meeting of the Trelawny Parish Council in Falmouth on June 10, said it is this increased vigilance that led to the recent capture of four stowaways in the small fishing village of Rio Bueno. The men, who were discovered by a public health inspector, had hidden aboard a cargo ship from the Dominican Republic, which had docked at the Tankweld Port. Ms. Somerville informed that the men were taken to the Falmouth Hospital for medical examination and then taken into custody by the police. She said that on being medically examined they were found to be healthy, but noted that the situation “could have easily been otherwise”. The Chief Public Health Inspector reported that during the month of May, some 15 sea vessels docked in the parish, 13 of which were cruise ships and two cargo ships.  She said that approximately 54,530 persons were aboard these vessels, with 36,696 passengers and 17,834 crew members.   She said that all health protocols were observed with regard to the vessels. She informed that as part of her department’s vector control programme, ovitraps to monitor breeding of the aedes aegepti mosquito are being placed at the sea ports. The report for 24 such traps set during the month of May is still pending, while the analysis of the report for some 22  traps set in April, were all negativefor the aedes aegepti larvae. Additionally, approximately 229 inspections of food establishments were carried out throughout the parish during the month of April, while 322 such inspections were done in May.

Rev. Ronald Thwaites, is assuring teachers that their retroactive salaries will be paid on time.This assurance comes in response to concerns raised by the Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA) that certain retroactive payments due in August 2014, would not be paid.“I wish to state clearly that the arrears that are owing to the directly paid Government teachers will be paid on time. The process of calculation has (been) the subject of an audit carried out by the Ministry of Finance and Planning, and they have assured us that the Government-paid teachers will be settled on time,” he stated.Minister Thwaites was addressing a press conference at his National Heroes Circle offices in Kingston on August 12, to present the results of the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examination and the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE).The payments to the teachers have become due following a reclassification exercise in 2007.In respect of the approximately 25 per cent of the island’s teachers, who are not paid directly by the Government, Minister Thwaites said that the payments due to this group would be resolved within a couple of weeks.“The auditors are in contact with the bursar-paid schools to ensure that there is congruence between the funds, which we send in bulk to those schools and the exact amounts, which will be payable to each teacher,” he stated.“That process is on-going and we expect that it will be completed within the next couple of weeks or so. But as far as the bulk of the teachers are concerned, they will receive their funds as arranged,” he said.Meanwhile, Rev. Thwaites said that the Ministry of Education “does not intend to deprive any teacher of the leave that they are entitled.”He said that leave that has been authorised by the Ministry this year “is entirely within the letter and spirit of the Education Code 1980.” Photo: JIS PhotographerMinister of Education, Hon.

Millicom completes Tigo Senegal sale

first_imgHome Millicom completes Tigo Senegal sale Millicom lanzará una red RAN abierta en América Latina Millicom mejora resultados gracias a las altas de móvil Saleha joined Mobile World Live in October 2014 as a reporter and works across all e-newsletters – creating content, writing blogs and reports as well as conducting feature interviews…More Read more Author Tags Related Millicom completed the sale of its Tigo Senegal unit to Saga Africa Holdings, first announced in July 2017 after it terminated an agreement to sell the operations to Wari Group.Millicom had signed a deal to sell the unit to Wari Group for $129 million, but later said it had “exercised its right” to end the agreement, reportedly due to the group failing to meet a deadline to provide funds.Wari filed an arbitration request in Paris last year, after which Senegal’s president, Macky Sall, stated the government would decide on its own ruling if the companies failed to find an agreement.Now Sall has signed a decree approving the Saga deal because he believes Saga Africa, a consortium, is made up of telecoms experts who will add value for customers in keeping with a strategy called Plan for an Emerging Senegal, IT Web Africa reported.Saga Africa consists of NJJ Capital, controlled by Iliad founder Xavier Niel; Sofima, a telecoms investment vehicle managed by Axian Group; and Teyliom Group, which operates as a diversifieid investment-holding group focused on west and central Africa.The decree asked for the consortium to set competitive prices and restore purchasing power to customers.Tigo is the number two operator in Senegal, with a 25 per cent market share in Q1 2018, according to GSMA Intelligence figures, followed closely by Sudatel (23 per cent). At the top is Orange, with a dominant 52 per cent share.center_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 30 APR 2018 Previous ArticleElliott reassures Telecom Italia chief after quit threatNext ArticleHuawei softens own smartphone OS speculation Español Saleha Riaz Millicom to launch open RAN network in LatAm MillicomTigo Senegallast_img read more

Details Emerge in Health Clinic Vandalism Sentencing

first_img Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. Email Just hours before Zachary Klundt broke into and destroyed a Kalispell health clinic, a detective says the 25-year-old Columbia Falls man sent his mother a text message: “What is the abortionist’s name?”Details about the night Klundt broke into All Families Healthcare and vandalized the Kalispell clinic in March 2014 emerged during a sentencing hearing that began in Flathead County District Court on Tuesday. The hearing, which went into recess late Tuesday, will continue Wednesday morning at 10 a.m.The hearing comes two months after Klundt pleaded guilty to charges of burglary, criminal mischief and theft in a case that made regional headlines. All Families Healthcare was the only facility in the Flathead Valley that provided abortions.For nearly three hours, Deputy County Attorney Stacy Boman presented witnesses who described how they had been impacted by Klundt’s actions. While Klundt’s attorney has argued that the young man was drunk and looking for drugs when he vandalized the clinic, the victim said she believes his actions were politically motivated. Klundt’s mother, Twyla Klundt, was on the board of Hope Pregnancy Ministries, a local Christian group that opposes abortion.“Zachary Klundt destroyed my office because he and his family are against abortions,” said Susan Cahill, the proprietor and physician at the clinic, while testifying as a witness for the prosecution at the hearing. “Destroying someone’s property because of a difference in beliefs is called terrorism.”The detective who led the Kalispell Police Department’s investigation into the vandalism also offered testimony that revealed details of the day Klundt destroyed the clinic. According to Capt. Scott Warnell, Klundt texted his mother on the afternoon of March 3 asking for information about where Cahill’s new office was located. Cahill moved out of her old office on Meridian Road in early 2014 when Michelle and Kent Reimer purchased the building and evicted her. Michelle Reimer works as the executive director of Hope Pregnancy Ministries, the anti-abortion group.Warnell said investigators found the series of texts on Klundt’s phone after he was arrested on the evening of March 4 while trying to break into another business. Warnell also said that Klundt had taken a video of the destruction before leaving the clinic.The court also heard testimony from Cahill’s patients, friends and family.After that, prosecutors handed over the floor to defense attorney Peter Leander, who called witnesses to testify about how Klundt has struggled with drug addiction in the past and how he has changed dramatically since March 2013.“He was a monster that night,” said Dr. Mark Elliot, Klundt’s cousin. “But Zach is not a monster. What happened that night was the result of a heavy mix of drugs and depression.”Klundt will be back in court at 10 a.m. on Wednesday. According to court documents, prosecutors will recommend Klundt be sent to the Montana State Prison for 20 years, with 15 years suspended, for burglary. They also recommend he receive two 10-year suspended sentences for theft and criminal mischief to run concurrently.The defense will recommend that minimum fines and fees be imposed so that Klundt can better pay restitution.last_img read more

Part of an overall effort which saw the Maiden Lane denizens collect 15 helpers on 26 made field goals.“We talked in the locker room how our first game (of the sectionals) we let them dictate the style,” Guzielek explained. “Our style is there are five guys on the floor at all times who can score the basketball. They just look for that easy basket. They’re actually make a lot of extra passes to get an easier basket.“We shot the ball lights out to start. You come in this gym, this big place 7-for-13 in the first half for threes? That’s going to be tough to beat us because we can attack the basket.”The fourth-year coach pointed to his squad’s regular season ledger which saw the Leopards play cross-town rival Greece Athena as well as Pittsford-Mendon, Pittsford Sutherland and Wellsville.“Our schedule dictates why we are here,” the fourth-year coach noted. “There are four other teams that we played during the year that are in finals. We played them well.”Odyssey stretched its halftime lead to 20 before the end of the third quarter when Romell Griffin scored two of his nine points.“We did a nice job in the second half of turning the press up,” Guzielek stated. “The assists that you see on the fast breaks, how they share it. They’re throwing the ball up to somebody not even needing a dribble and it’s a finish. Then they turn right back around and you got to grind us for an entire length.” By PAUL GOTHAMROCHESTER, N.Y. – The top seed fits Jim Guzielek’s Greece Odyssey boys’ basketball team well. It just took a while.After slipping past eighth-seeded Livonia in the quarterfinals of the Class B1 tournament, the Leopards beat Geneva 67-48 in the semifinals. That trend continued Saturday morning at the Blue Cross Arena.Tournament MVP Jaden Hartsfield paced a 16-2 run to end the first quarter as Odyssey grabbed a double-digit lead and didn’t allow the No. 2 seed Newark Reds any closer in a resounding 69-40 win in the Section V Class B1 final.“Last two weeks have been really, really challenging,” said Guzielek whose squad claimed the Class B crown a year ago. “Playing as the one seed was a new experience for us. The Livonia game was something. I honestly think we probably should have lost that game.  We were a little shell-shocked playing as the one seed at the home court and being Monroe County champions (Division IV). Certainly that woke us up.”The alarm was still ringing when Odyssey met Newark.Hartsfield connected twice from 3-point land over the stanza’s final four minutes and scored nine points during the run as Odyssey erased a two-point deficit to take a 24-12 lead going to the second frame.“He’s so smooth,” Guzielek said of his junior guard. “He’s so good with the basketball in his hands. He’s going to make the right play. If he’s shooting like that, we’re really tough to stop because he’s so long.“He can just take over a game and not even know it. He doesn’t even show it until you look at the book.”Trailing 10-8, Hartsfield took a Travon Harper lead on a leak out and finished an and-one. Dylan Kolmetz followed with a free-throw line jumper before Hartsfield hit from long range. Presten Mathis found the measure from behind the arc, and Romell Griffin converted a putback. Travon Harper added 12 points and a game-high four assists. Aric Williams matched Newark’s Jayden Peters with a game-high nine rebounds. Williams chipped in with six points and two blocks.Peters led Newark with 12 points.Odyssey will play the Wellsville vs. Wayland-Cohocton winner in the NYS Far West Regional qualifier scheduled for Wednesday.“It’s just such an awesome team to be around,” Guzielek said of the Leopards. “They fight in practice. They love each other. You can see. It’s a true sense of how proud our community is, how proud our school is. To go back-to-back is really difficult. You hear about it, and people talk about it. With the target on your back all year, it’s cool, but there’s a lot of pressure too.”GREECE ODYSSEY 69, NEWARK 40NEWARK (18-4)Jayden Peters 5-17 1-2 12; Mason VanDeMortel 4-19 0-3 9; Kyle Martinez 2-42-2 7; Devin Agosto 2-5 2-2 6; Isaiah Camp 1-2 1-2 3; Aiden Elliott 1-3 0-02; Dustin Case 0-0 1-2 1; Julius Teabout 0-0 0-0 0; Adam Lombardi 0-0 0-0 0;Carter Steve 0-0 0-0 0; Blade Case 0-0 0-0 0; Kyle French 0-1 0-0 0; JoshGreen 0-2 0-0 0; Nicholas Bernardi 0-1 0-0 0.

US-China trade war pushes thin film market to 11-month high

first_imgUS-China trade war pushes thin film market to 11-month highSpot prices for thin film modules rise 5.2% in a month as ongoing trade dispute between the U.S. and China depresses prices for polysilicon panels. July 4, 2014 Ian Clover Legal Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Data compiled by analyst firm PVinsights has revealed that spot prices for thin film modules have reached their highest level since the end of July last year as uncertainty over the U.S.-China trade dispute rumbles on. Thin film modules were spot-priced at 61.2 cents/kW today – a 5.2% increase in the past month and the highest price since July 31 2013. Having plunged to a record low of 58.2 cents/kW on June 4, thin film modules have been steadily rising in price ever since the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) proposed closing a loophole that currently allows Chinese-made modules to circumvent current anti dumping (AD) duties. Over the same period, spot prices for polysilicon panels – the more commonly used technology and an sector dominated by Chinese suppliers – have fallen by 2.8% to 63.2 cents/kW. Thin film manufacturers such as First Solar from the U.S. and Solar Frontier from Japan are likely to welcome the news, although the increased uncertainty in the market being caused by the ongoing dispute has not curried favor with most solar companies. “It is very possible that the trade wars have made really low-cost Chinese modules increasingly unusable in many markets,” mused Bloomberg New Energy Finance’s solar analyst, Jenny Chase. “That is causing developers to look at thin film.” The DOC is expected to finally determine the level of duties set against polysilicon modules from China and Taiwan by August 18. Preliminary duties have been levied at 19% and 35% respectively, with the International Trade Commission also poised to issue a ruling on the DOC’s actions within 45 days of that date.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.
