The J&K police has raised an alarm over the ‘reprisal attacks’ on non-locals living in Kashmir, after the reports of intimidation of non-local workers in Srinagar’s Kara Nagar and Bandipora areas.A senior police officer at the police headquarters said the situation was “being monitored closely as a few incidents of intimation has started pouring in.” “There were two minor incidents of intimidation at a sweets shop in Srinagar and workers in Bandipora. Some bike-borne youth tried to intimidate non-local workers. However, locals intervened and doused the situation,” said the police officer. The police said it fears that viral videos of alleged violence emerging from across the country against Kashmiri students and traders are “fuelling tension and anxiety in Kashmir Valley.” The administration is mulling to extend winter vacations of schools and colleges in Kashmir to avoid any law and order situation. Meanwhile, posters were pasted by a few doctors at Srinagar’s premiere health institute Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital (SMHS) barring representatives of pharmaceutical companies Zydus, Macleods, Intas and Sun Pharma following the move by the Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Limited “to suspend” three Kashmiri sales executives, Rounak Bashir Bhat, Arif Bashir and Sheikh Shabir Ahmad, “for their Facebook posts”.“It has been reported that you started posting hateful messages on your Twitter handle in the wake of Pulwama attack. Your tweet is insensitive in nature and has brought disrepute to the image of our organisation,” reads the notice issued to one of the sales representative.Non-locals hold protest Meanwhile, scores of non-locals staying in Kashmir held a demonstration in Srinagar and demanded “an end to the attacks on Kashmiris outside the State.” “It is unfortunate that people from Kashmir were at the receiving end in the country after the Pulwama attack. This demonstration is to demand an end to such attacks,” one of the traders said.said a non-local goldsmith in Srinagar, who has been living in the J&K’s capital for the past 25 years.The protesters said that non-locals working were “feeling secure in Kashmir but the treatment meted out to Kashmiris is not a positive development.” According to an official figure, around six lakh non-Kashmiri workers travel to the State every year to work in different sectors, especially the construction business.

Pre-selection for the Overseas Employment Programme, administered by the Ministry of Labour and Social Security, will be held between June 26 and July 17.This programme provides opportunities for hundreds of Jamaicans on Canadian and American farms yearly.Recruitment for the programme is done based on the needs of employers.The last recruitment was done in 2015 and resulted in a pool of approximately 3,000 persons from which to select.To ensure successful placement in the programme, persons must satisfy a number of requirements. Candidates must:• Be between 21 and 45 years old• Possess a Tax Registration Number (TRN) and a National Insurance Scheme (NIS) number• Possess a valid passport• Be literate• Have not been refused a visa in the last year by the Canadian or United States of America authorities• Not have been previously deported from any country• Possess no criminal recordApplication forms are available through several avenues, including Members of Parliament, mayors and councillors, the Ministry’s parish offices, civic organisations, trade unions and agricultural schools.After the forms have been completed and submitted to the Ministry, they are processed and then interviews are scheduled islandwide.Normally, four locations are visited across the country – 110-114 East Street in Kingston; Mandeville, Manchester; Montego Bay, St. James and St. Ann.Director of Manpower Services in the Ministry, Andrea Miller Stennett, explains to JIS News that after the interview stage, candidates are put in a pool for placement.“They are then required to submit a police record before they do a medical examination. If the candidates are found to be in good health, they are placed with an employer and then we call them to do biometric tests,” she outlines.They then fulfil the visa requirements for Canada or the United States, after which travel arrangements are made.Mrs. Miller-Stennett, however, cautions candidates that even if they have met the requirements outlined by the Ministry, there is no guarantee that they will be employed.“The Ministry cannot guarantee placement on any farm overseas, even if the candidates are successful with our processes, because there is a visa process that they have to go through where the Canadian and US authorities make a determination as to whether or not they are admissible,” she says.Approximately 375 farmworkers left the island for Canada in January. Last year, 15,611 workers participated in the Overseas Employment Programme. Of this figure, 8,934, or more than 50 per cent, went to Canada. This represented an increase of 844 new workers when compared with the same period in 2015.More information on the Overseas Employment Programme can be found on the Ministry’s website: www.mlss.gov.jm or by calling 922-9500-14.

Addressing the setting of the Council earlier in the day, Mayor of Kingston, Senator Councillor Delroy Williams, said the prohibition is a temporary measure and is being implemented to regulate the use of the areas.

Representatives from the Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC) will be meeting with party promoters on Tuesday (April 9) regarding the decision to ban the staging of entertainment events at parking lots in New Kingston.Addressing the setting of the Council earlier in the day, Mayor of Kingston, Senator Councillor Delroy Williams, said the prohibition is a temporary measure and is being implemented to regulate the use of the areas.He noted that in some instances, persons use the parking lots without the requisite amusement approvals or authorisation from the municipality.“We will continue to support the creative industries but must do so with order. We have to ensure that there is a standard and protocols established for dealing with the use and clean-up. We have to establish conditions, and the promoters have to agree to that… and abide by what they agree to (or) we just can’t do it,” he said.Senator Williams said that the objective of the municipality is to bring order to the process and ensure effective monitoring of the parking lots, especially on weekends.“There is no 24-hour security at the parking lots, so people just turn up like a Saturday night or Sunday night and they use the parking lot for an event and we wake Monday morning to hear that an event was held,” he pointed out.“It’s generally an order issue, so it is (the) clean-up issue. It’s also the time when you do it, and that you are adhering to said times… . It is an issue of structure and order. We have to do these things but do it in a particular way that takes into consideration all the different factors,” he added.Senator Williams said after the meeting, “I’m very sure that we will have a structure to move forward; a structure that is agreed to by all.”The temporary prohibition was announced recently by the municipality.
Facebook Twitter But Events Transpiring Before, During and After and a High School Basketball Game is not really that type of sports movie. Those inspirational slogans do not make an appearance. This morning’s scene, for instance, is unfolding in one long, uncut take and involves members of the Ducks listlessly running the court. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: Advertisement Advertisement In the abandoned hallways outside the gymnasium of Calgary’s Queen Elizabeth High School, there are motivational quotes stencilled onto the rafters. “Sometimes the right path is not the easiest path,” reads one. “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them,” says another.These inspirational nuggets would probably prove handy to the Middleview Ducks, the losing team at the heart of an indie comedy that is currently being shot at the northwest school.On this particular morning, the Ducks are in the middle of another humiliating defeat and could probably use a bit of the pep-talk guidance provided by those hallway messages.

While admitting that he has still not yet fully recovered from his foot injury, Neymar is remaining optimistic over his recovery and is certain that he will back at “100%” for Brazil’s opening gameThe Paris Saint-Germain forward has been struggling with the foot injury since a game against local rivals Marseille on February 25.After doing his rehabilitation in Brazil, Neymar returned to PSG for their final matches of the season but was unable to recover sufficiently to take part and gain some much needed minutes on the pitch.However, the 26-year-old is confident he will be fully recovered for Brazil’s World Cup opener against Switzerland on June 17.“Physically I am well, my foot is fine. I am adapting to a few things. I still feel some discomfort, but it is not something that will trouble me,” said Neymar, according to Independent.On how he is now, Neymar stated: “Not 100 percent yet. But that comes with time. It is normal that I have this fear of making complete movements. Let’s take it easy, there are still many days until the (World Cup) opener and I will be 100 percent then.”The Brazilian is hopeful that he will be able to take part in their first friendly against Croatia at Liverpool on Sunday.Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…“I am ready to play, there is nothing that can stop me,” he said.“What I feel today is this fear because I am coming back now.”Neymar was forced out of Brazil’s previous World Cup with a vertebral fracture and had to watch as his teammates succumb to a humiliating 7-1 defeat to eventual champions Germany at their home ground.“I hope that dream is not interrupted once more and that it is consolidated with a title for us,” added Neymar.Despite PSG’s best attempts, speculation surrounding Neymar’s future remains strong.“My focus is Brazil, people are saying nonsense and that is not worth answering,” said Neymar, when asked.

The declaration would authorize a full suite of federal assistance for the State of Alaska as a result of the major earthquake that occurred on November 30, 2018. Governor Dunleavy: “The November 30th earthquake caused significant damage – shuttered schools, destroyed homes, displaced hundreds of Alaskans – and we have determined that effective recovery efforts are beyond the capabilities of the State and affected local governments. In an effort to ensure Alaskans have every opportunity to recover, we have formally requested a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration under the federal Stafford Act, which opens the door to an assortment of federal assistance programs to get Alaska back up on its feet faster.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Governor Mike Dunleavy in a press conference yesterday made the announcement that he is requesting a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration.

A man is seen in front of a Didi sign before a promotional event of its Hitch service for the Spring festival travel rush, in Beijing, China on 24 January 2018. Reuters File PhotoChina’s largest ride-hailing firm Didi Chuxing is suspending its Hitch services nationwide, the company said in a statement on Sunday, a day after police said a ride-sharing passenger in the eastern Chinese city of Wenzhou was raped and killed by a driver.Didi Chuxing, the biggest ride-sharing firm globally by number of trips, said it was sorry that the carpooling service would be suspended from 27 August due to “disappointing mistakes” while the company reevaluated the product’s business model.The suspected murder of the 20-year-old woman, who Wenzhou police identified only with the surname Zhao, is the latest in a series of violent crimes that have fuelled safety concerns about the service.Zhao got into a Hitch carpool vehicle at 1:00pm (0500 GMT) on Friday, and sent a message to a friend at around 2:00pm seeking help before losing contact, according to a local police statement.A 27-year-old driver named Zhong was detained at about 4:00am on Saturday and confessed to raping and killing the passenger, the statement said, adding the victim’s body had been recovered and an investigation was continuing.Didi said on Sunday that the suspect has no prior criminal record, had provided authentic documentation and passed a facial recognition test before starting work.However, the company said on Saturday there was a prior complaint made against the driver on Thursday by a passenger who alleged the driver took them to a remote place and then followed the passenger after exiting the vehicle.”The incident shows the many deficiencies with our customer service processes, especially the failure to act swiftly on the previous passenger’s complaint and the cumbersome and rigid process of information sharing with the police,” the company said in the statement on Sunday.The Hitch carpooling service has served over 1 billion trips in the past three years, the company said.Didi should be punished if it fails to put customers safety first, China’s official Xinhua News agency said in a commentary on Sunday.Didi has increased its safety measures for Hitch after the murder of a flight attendant during a Hitch ride in May sparked community outrage.The steps included limiting Hitch drivers to only picking up passengers of the same sex during early morning and late evening hours.
Listen Harvey’s devastation is affecting more than just homes and roadways.News 88.7’s Gail Delaughter spoke to Daniel Armbruster with Triple-A Texas, who says it doesn’t come as a surprise. He says there’s usually a price spike after a hurricane or a flood. X 00:00 /00:45 Share To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Retail gasoline prices in Texas and across the country spiked by at least a dime following disastrous Hurricane Harvey. AAA Texas on Thursday reported the average price at the pump statewide was $2.26 per gallon. That’s 12 cents higher than a week ago, when Harvey threatened Texas, and 4 cents above Wednesday’s price. The association survey says U.S. gasoline prices Thursday averaged $2.45 per gallon — that’s 10 cents higher than a week ago and a nickel increase since Wednesday. Harvey made landfall in South Texas last Friday, leading to coastal flooding and swamping of much of Houston. Parts of Beaumont and Port Arthur also flooded as Harvey lost strength and moved into Louisiana. Dallas had the most expensive gasoline in Texas on Thursday at an average $2.37 per gallon.

University of Louisville head coach Rex Ecarma has announced that Matthew Fung has signed a National-Letter-of-Intent to continue his playing career with the Cardinals. “One of Louisville Athletics motto is being ‘humble and hungry’ and this describes Matthew Fung perfectly,” said Ecarma. “He is an intelligent and pragmatic on and off the court. He is one of the three signees whose parent is also his coach. One of the reasons he chose UofL I believe is that the similarities in coaching style that his father and I have. Matthew was very well-received here during his recruiting trip and felt he would fit right in. He is very coachable and is known for his singles play, but his doubles game is really developing. He reminds me of former Cardinal standout Chris Simich, but also has the court speed of current player, Clement Filho. I am excited about coaching him for four years.” “I chose Louisville because I wanted to be challenged on the tennis court and in the classroom,” said Fung. “I also wanted to play in the ACC Conference and I will experience all these things at the University of Louisville.” Print Friendly Version
