RelatedPrime Minister Golding Announces Cabinet Changes Cabinet wants Legislation to Deal with Sexual Offences Fast Tracked ParliamentOctober 4, 2012 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Cabinet has instructed the Ministry of Justice to ensure that priority is given to the passage of legislation such as the DNA Bill and regulations to accompany the Sexual Offences Act. This follows extensive discussions on the recent spate of sexual offences against women and children. Speaking at the Jamaica House press briefing on October 3, 2012, Minister with responsibility for Information, Senator the Hon. Sandrea Falconer, said the additional legislative support will assist with the successful apprehension and punishment of offenders. The Information Minister disclosed that Cabinet also discussed the abolition of preliminary enquiries to ensure that cases are dealt with more speedily in the courts, “and of course for the reduction of the trauma on victims.” She informed that a public education programme is also to be developed in an effort to bring awareness about issues relating to sexual abuse and sexual violence. Senator Falconer said that discussions were held with the Media Association of Jamaica and the Press Association of Jamaica on the need for more sensitive reporting of issues relating to sexual offences. As it relates to children, she informed that an inter-ministerial and interagency committee, headed by the Minister of Youth and Culture, Hon. Lisa Hanna, has been meeting to develop a plan of action to deal with the welfare of children, who come in contact with the law. “Ministers Peter Bunting and Mark Golding are also members of that committee. Minister Hanna has been instructed to return to Cabinet with recommendations and proposals for an action plan after stakeholder consultation,” Ms. Falconer said. “The Parenting Act, which was tabled both in the House of Representatives and in the Senate, is to be fast tracked and as well as the setting up of the Parenting Commission,” she informed.

RENO, Nev. – Geoff Ogilvy got up-and-down for birdie from a greenside bunker on the par-5 closing hole to take a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Barracuda Championship. In the modified Stableford event, players receive eight points for double eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie, zero for par, minus-one for bogey and minus-three for double bogey or worse. Ogilvy, the Australian who won the 2006 U.S. Open, had seven birdies and two bogeys in a 12-point round at Montreux to push his total to 35. He’s making his first appearance in the event since 2002 after failing to qualify for the World Golf Championship-Bridgestone Invitational. Nick Watney, the leader after each of the first two rounds, was tied for second with Jason Allred. Watney scored six points, and Allred had 14.
Intermodal traffic on North America’s railways lost out to cheaper trucking alternatives last year.More haulage capacity opened up, pushing full-year revenues at intermodal operators down across the board.Of the six major North American railroads, only Norfolk Southern (NS) and Canadian National (CN) reported volume growth. The Warren Buffet-owned BNSF does not report its numbersUnion Pacific (UP) experienced the biggest dent in its intermodal revenues, which tumbled 9% year-on-year. At Canadian Pacific (CPR) and Kansas City Southern (KCS), the declines exceeded 5%; while CN, CSX and NS declines were more muted, at around 1%. By Alexander Whiteman 26/01/2017 A UP spokesperson declined to provide any further explanation than that offered by chief marketing officer Beth Whitehead at the company’s full-year results. She said total intermodal volumes would have been up 2% instead of down 6% were it not for the collapse of Hanjin.CN saw volumes rose 2% year-on-year against declining revenues, and chief marketing officer Jean-Jacques Ruest said international volumes had remained flat following the bankruptcy.“But we are well on our way to recovering the volumes with other shipping lines, especially with the DP World terminal expansion [in Prince Rupert] coming in July and the reshaping of the world’s shipping alliances,” he said.While not openly admitting the impact of trucking on its results in 2016, Ms Whitehead said UP expected to benefit from tightening truck capacity this year, a view echoed by her opposite number at NS, Alan Shaw, where a modest upturn in volumes did little to prevent declining revenues.“We expect intermodal volumes and revenue per unit in 2017 to benefit from tightening capacity within the trucking market, particularly, later in the year,” said Mr Shaw.Increasing revenue per unit did little to salvage CSX’s year, with both revenues and volumes down 1% year-on-year in stark contrast to average annual growth of 7% over the last decade. A spokesperson told The Loadstar that a cycle of international account loss had been partly responsible.Available truck capacity, combined with specific short-haul losses, led the domestic volume declines in the fourth quarter.KCS chief marketing officer Brian Hancock said the Mexico-US cross-border operator had seen a similar trend.“Our intermodal business continued to see significant competition from inexpensive trucking and industry consolidation among major ocean shipping lines.”According to DAT, which supplies trucking volumes and rates data, volumes carried by road hauliers in the US increased for the sixth straight month in December, up 8% on November and almost back to a June-high. Rates also edged up 1% compared with December 2015.Data from the American Trucking Association depicted a year of yo-yo fortunes for road hauliers – although it was a year in which volumes closed 2.5% up compared with 2015, despite a depressed end-of-year performance with December volumes marginally down 0.7% on 2015.ATA chief economist Bob Costello said: “I don’t recall a year with so many large swings on a month-to-month basis [month-on-month, November volumes increased 8.2%, while December volumes declined 6.2%].“Looking ahead, there are some positive signs for truck tonnage, including the continued spending by consumers, larger wage gains and solid home construction,” he added.President and chief commercial officer of CP Keith Creel said the company would be further focusing its efforts on taking back the trucking sector’s share of the intermodal market.“I am talking about competing with truck share and taking trucks off the road and putting them on the rail,” said Mr Creel.Similarly, CSX expects a strong demand for its intermodal product long-term, and will focus on its highway-to-rail conversion scheme this year, which aims to tempt shippers away from trucks to rail.“The addressable market for highway-to-rail conversions remains about 9m truckloads in the eastern US,” the spokesperson told The Loadstar.“Longer term, we expect domestic intermodal growth in the 5-10% range, and on the international side, we are experiencing growth with several customers.”
Brokers declined to provide asking rents or the term of the deal. But in the area, depending on size and location, rents now range from $100 to $400 per foot, according to sources.The clothier decided to take advantage of what’s been a tumultuous but potentially advantageous retail market for tenants in New York City to open a store to support the collection, according to a spokesperson. Paul Stuart, whose flagship has been open at Madison Avenue and East 45th Street since 1938, also just opened a new store at 50 Main Street in Southampton.Ripco’s Josh Siegelman, who represented the tenant in the deal, says the space is “a good fit” for them as the area has blossomed with other menswear retailers including Suitsupply, Indochino and Golden Goose.“It’s a nice co-tenancy to support what they want to do,” Siegelman said. “It’s a historical, iconic brand and super excited about these new stores and entering the Soho marketplace.”Paul Stuart will replace the Italian brand Michele Negri, which will vacate by the end of August.Deeds show that the small building was owned by developer Harry Macklowe in the 1970s.Goldfarb, who bought the building in 1996, said there were two retailers competing for the spot. Brokers say retailers have come out of a pandemic stupor over the last two weeks to take advantage of the drop in pricing and to start focusing on future occupancies.In May and June, protests over the killing of George Floyd turned violent in some instances. Stores in Soho like the Balenciaga shop on Mercer Street were looted. Many retailers resorted to boarding up their storefronts — some had already done so when they shuttered earlier in the pandemic. Since then, other retailers have begun reopening.Chris Owles and Sarah Shannon of Sinvin represented Goldfarb in the transaction, which started as the virus hit but was just finalized.“There has been softness for a while and it’s created opportunities for brands to enter the market,” Owles said.Update: This article previously misstated Chris Owles’ name.

Students spent Friday evening learning through lectures, said Scottie Emerson, one of three instructors and a Winston-Salem firefighter. “They are actually trying to disentangle their patient from an overturned tractor,” Kelly Emerson said as she led the group through the rescue. But when everything from overturned tractors to injuries associated with grain bins do occur, rescue personnel want to be ready. The injured person might be found hours after the accident occurs. The farm equipment might still be running. Many Understanding engineering principals and learning how to remove that equipment without causing more harm to the patient or to the people doing the rescue are key.“The farm accident is not an everyday occurrence so that in and of itself is a challenge,” Kelly Emerson said. “… This type of program benefits all rescuers and EMS personnel.” About 45 paramedics, volunteer firefighters and other rescuers from across the state spent the weekend learning what to expect when faced with a farm-related accident as well as the techniques necessary to per form safe rescues. The Farmedic course, a nationally recognized program designed at Cornell University, was offered through Alamance Community College. Typically, rescuers are taught about adhering to the “golden hour,” which means getting an injured patient from the scene of an accident into surgery at the hospital within an hour, Scottie Emerson said. When dealing with farm accidents, rescue personnel have to abandon that mindset. Students had to navigate their way through a variety of scenarios, including an overturned tractor, a person riding on the back of tractor, falling off and getting pinned beneath a tire as well as a person getting run over by a tractor while changing implements. “Tractors and farm implements are not like everyday cars and trucks on the high ways that most rescuers are used to dealing with,” Kelly Emerson said. “They are using techniques that require lifting and stabilizing so they do no further harm.” Performing rescues for farm-related accidents or accidents involving heavy equipment, which can take place on interstates as well as city roads, creates challenges that paramedics, emergency medical technicians and fire fighters don’t face every day in motor vehicle wrecks. If accidents occurs on a farm, it’s often miles from a roadway in the middle of a field that can be tricky to access. “Rescue vehicles can’t get out there,” said Richard Franklin, a full-time firefighter at Altamahaw-Ossipee Fire Department and volunteer training officer with the Alamance County Rescue Squad. “If it’s out in the field, you have to haul everything out to the patient.” Terrain, distance, weather, fuel leakage as well as catastrophic injuries all pose unique challenges. Even the shape of the equipment can make rescue much more complicated. Farm-related accidents don’t happen often in Alamance County, N.C. “It’s not like going to a typical house call,” Scottie Emerson said. Hearing about how to perform the rescues was important, but it was during the two days of hands-on exercises Saturday and Sunday at Byrd Tractor & Supply in Burlington that class participants were able to understand how to do the job. “You can sit and learn everything but until you actually put your hands on it — feel it, do it and understand the amount of work — there is nothing that can substitute that,” said Franklin who worked to get the course offered in Alamance County. “You could not do this with just a lecture,” said Kelly Emerson, a course instructor and retired paramedic. “You have to do the hands on and get what won’t work. They have to see what won’t work and learn from that because it is not the everyday rescue.” The students were separated into three groups led by Scottie and Kelly Emerson and a third instructor, James Young, who is a law enforce ment officer with the Alleghany County Sheriff ‘s Department.

The ground located in Mumbai is one of the ten IPL venues in India this season With a capacity of 45,000 spectators, the Wankhede stadium is one of the premier stadiums in India. Located in Mumbai, the stadium is the home ground for IPL franchise Mumbai Indians.Built in 1974, the Wankhede stadium hosted its first Test match when India locked horns with West Indies on January 23, 1975. The first One-Day International(ODI) at the stadium took place on January 17, 1987 when India played against Sri Lanka.One of the highlights of the stadium is the suspended cantilever roofs. The Teflon fabric roof is lighter in weight and heat resistant. There is no beam support for the roof to ensure that the spectators will have a better view. On the roof there are exhaust fans which suck the hot air from the stands and allow the breeze from the West to flow in. The stadium has 20 elevators for North and South stands.Total T20Is Hosted: 1First T20I: India vs England on December 22, 2012.Highest Total(T20Is): England’s 181/4 against India on December 22, 2012.Lowest Total(T20Is): India’s 177/8 against England on December 22, 2012.Best Bowling figures: Indian spinner Yuvraj Singh’s 3/17 against England on December 22, 2012.
