A.J. Nicholson and the EU’s Commissioner for Development, Andris Piebalgs.Making the announcement in the Senate on Friday, September 12, Senator Nicholson said the agreement serves as a tangible contribution of the EU to the sustainable development of Jamaica and “yet another example of the value of international partnerships.”The NIP agreement was signed with 21 African, Caribbean, Pacific (ACP) countries, under the 11th European Development Fund (EDF) for the period 2014 to 2020, for a total amount of €339 million.Minister of Justice, Senator the Hon. Mark Golding, explained that part of the funds will go toward the reform of the justice system. He said this will involve the increased use of modern technology in the court room.Meanwhile, Mr. Nicholson also informed that during his trip to Samoa, he participated in bilateral meetings with representatives from Canada, Germany, Israel, Singapore, Sweden, and Switzerland and paid a short official visit, along with representatives from five other CARICOM countries, to New Zealand.In addition, Senator Nicholson moderated a session organised by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) on the ‘Vulnerabilities of Caribbean SIDS’.The session took the form of a panel discussion with the Foreign Ministers of Guyana, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago, along with representatives of ECLAC.Minister Nicholson noted that the way forward for Jamaica, following what he deemed “a successful conference,” involves actions at the national and regional levels to take on board the numerous recommendations in the outcome document.He said these recommendations will be transmitted to the various ministries, departments and agencies of government for action and for the further mainstreaming into national development plans and strategies.“Let me stress also that there is a pivotal role for the private sector, including through public-private partnerships. We will, therefore, share the outcome document with our friends in the private sector,” the Minister added.Senator Nicholson, who led Jamaica’s delegation to the high level UN conference, was accompanied by Minister of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change, Hon. Robert Pickersgill and officials from both ministries.The Third International Conference on SIDS was the largest global event ever held in the Pacific Islands. It was attended by more than 3,000 delegates from 180 countries and various international and regional organisations.

He has been a journalist…More Read more BT mulls options for sports TV service 3 UK is among a group looking to generate public support for spectrum caps in the UK, as it continues efforts to prevent rivals controlling the lion’s share of the market’s airwaves.The operator is supporting a campaign called Make the Air Fair, calling for supporters to “send a letter supporting the 30 per cent cap on network airwaves to Ofcom CEO Sharon White (#TellSharon)”. A pre-prepared missive is available via the campaign website.What is so far unclear is the public appetite to get involved in a debate about spectrum allocation. Certainly a consultation by the US Federal Communications Commission into net neutrality sparked significant public interest, although it is far from clear-cut that the spectrum issue (which also has a strong element of corporate interest at its heart) will do the same in the UK.Last week, Ofcom said it would prevent BT from bidding on 40MHz of spectrum available in the 2.3GHz band in a planned process, although it did not place a bar on 3.4GHz bids, because of the lack of immediate use.“We believe it is important that operators are given an opportunity to acquire this spectrum so they are able to consider early development of 5G services,” Ofcom said.Make the Air Fair, however, said that “under its current proposals, BT would be able to bid on four fifths of the spectrum which is being auctioned next year”.It warned that “we should look at the other sectors that BT has monopolised”, pointing its finger at the fixed broadband market and activities of its Openreach business.“We have been crippled and left in the digital dark ages through their shambolic underinvestment in the UK’s network infrastructure,” it wrote.Other supporters of Make the Air Fair are CityFibre, Gamma, TalkTalk, Federation of Communication Services and Relish. 33 UKBTOfcomlast_img read more

Free markets allow supply and demand to drive the production of goods. In the same way, there is a marketplace of ideas — we call this free speech. When free speech is protected, everyone has a chance to contribute and ideas can be debated and discussed.  But in order to preserve the marketplace of ideas, society must not demonize dissent.Storm on the HorizonAccording to the Wall Street Journal, there is a storm brewing over the National Association of Scholars (NAS) conference, “Fixing Science: Practical Solutions for the Irreproducibility Crisis,” in February. A scientist is trying to get it cancelled, using the tool of Twitter. The president of the NAS, Peter W. Wood, writes: But one scientist, armed with a keyboard and contempt for contrary opinions, has set out to cancel our conference. Leonid Teytelman has busied himself writing to the speakers at the event to warn them away. And he has found fellow censors who agree the conference is “problematic.” Our critic calls us “clever and dangerous.”How so? Once a Twitterstorm starts, the reasons multiply. Our list of speakers includes no women. (All declined our invitations.) Our initials share three letters with the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, or Nasem, therefore we are “deceptive.” Wikipedia describes us as a “conservative” organization. We are also accused of “climate denialism,” and of having invited some climate-change skeptics to speak. The truth is that we are a traditionalist group of scholars who hold to a rigorous standard of open-mindedness on controversial issues in the sciences. We welcome critiques from anyone who agrees to play by the rules of rational argument, openness and scrupulous use of evidence. That’s clever, I suppose, but dangerous only to those who balk at giving the “other side” a voice. Our Twittering critic sees our conference as a sneaky way to legitimate views that he regards as akin to blasphemy — ironic for a man accusing us of politicizing science. So far, the conferees have held fast. Some of the responses are inspiring. One scientist wrote: “The science fields badly need whatever we can accomplish at this conference in the way of understanding and solving the HUGE problem of irreproducibility.” Another batted away the critic by explaining: “If conservatism means antipathy to post-modernism, identity politics, political orthodoxies, and assaults on Enlightenment values and the Rule of Law, then count me in.”Elsewhere in his article Wood takes issue with the idea that women are an essential part of a well-rounded discussion. I heartily disagree with him on that. It is vital to have women at the table, as we bring a different perspective critical for society. Men and women are not the same, and a discussion populated solely by men is very different from one that includes women (or a discussion composed solely of women, for that matter). It is one thing to defend yourself from criticism after inviting female speakers who end up declining to participate. It’s another to consider the issue of including a group that makes up half the population as mere “identity politics.”To Create and to DestroyThat having been said, it is much more difficult to create something than to destroy it. Wood here is the creator. Teytelman is the would-be destroyer. He could work with people sympathetic to his view to hold an alternate conference. But right now, he seems set on quashing an important conversation. He’s entitled to resort to Twitter and to write to confirmed speakers, but that’s the easy, and destructive, way. A friend of free debate would do otherwise.I’ve alluded before to my interest in competitive debate, practiced at the school or college level. In debating policy, a team takes weeks or months to craft an affirmative case ready to present in an eight-minute speech. The negative team in the debate round may have spent a few hours preparing to negate the affirmative case, or they may come up with arguments on the fly. It is much, much more difficult to create and present something positive — be it a debate case or an entire conference — than to denigrate it. On that note, let the discussion resume — and the NAS conference continue. Image source: Free-Photos via Pixabay.

Hawaii tightens rules for visitors to Kauai

first_imgShare via Shortlink Tagshospitality Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinkcenter_img Governor David Ige and Kauai Island (Getty; Unsplash)Hawaiian state officials are tightening restrictions on travel to Kauai.Nonessential visitors to the island will have to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival, according to the Los Angeles Times.Rules are different for each of the Hawaiian islands, but generally travelers don’t have to quarantine if they have tested negative for Covid-19 before flying there.Kauai counted 18 active cases as of Nov. 27, a pittance compared with other parts of the country. But the island is home to just 69,000 people, and 18 is twice as many cases as six weeks ago, when officials began allowing visitors to fly in with a negative test.Governor David Ige said Kauai needed a new rule because the island has the fewest ICU beds of the state’s five counties.Several hotels on the lush island have recently claimed status as “bubble resorts,” which allows them to host people throughout their quarantine.Visitors to those resorts must test negative in advance and can’t leave the establishments. They are subjected to another test after three or four days on the island.Resorts in Hawaii, like hotels across the U.S., have seen business slow significantly throughout the pandemic, but some operators hope the bubble program will help.Travelers, especially wealthy ones, have been lengthening stays, which is helping hotels and resorts get by.Kauai Mayor Derek Kawakami asked for the new rules and said they will allow the island community to keep businesses open and youth sports active “as we conduct surge testing and contact tracing.”“I will gladly repeal the moratorium once we have the virus under control again,” he said.
