In one quarter, we fall short by $4.1 billion out of $121.3 billion, so that’s less than four per cent short of the target,” he pointed out.He was speaking at EPOC’s monthly press briefing in Kingston on Tuesday(May 5), where an assessment of the country’s economic performance as at the end of March was provided.Mr. Byles said the previous successes are important and the IMF team must now “make a decision based on important qualitative judgement that goes beyond just the numbers.”He said these considerations should include whether the Government remains committed and displays the effort needed to achieve the critical targets under the programme and whether the macroeconomic circumstances that were beyond the control of the authorities are sufficient enough to impact the targets. “The answer to both is yes…and I think that I can say unequivocally from EPOC’s point of view, the IMF should give the country a waiver based on these two facts,”Mr. Byles asserted.The IMF team is now in the island conducting its 8th quarterly review of Jamaica’s performance under the Extended Fund Facility (EFF) programme with the multilateral agency.

Shahine Robinson, presented cheques to the first set of 80 recipients on December 22, at the temporary Montego Bay regional offices of the Ministry on Cottage Road.“Over 150 persons were affected. We had to send back some of them to get their Taxpayer Registration Number (TRN) as they were incorrect, or we never got a TRN for them,” Mrs. Robinson explained. “We know that the money can’t buy back everything that you lost, but we are making an effort,” she told the gathering.The flooding resulted from excessively heavy rains, estimated at 3.5 inches, which lashed the city for about four hours. Several roadways were blocked for hours and extensive damage was done to private and public properties. Many residents living on William Street, King Street, Norwood, Dome Street and other areas were impacted.During a tour of the affected sections of the city on November 23, Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, promised that in addition to a $20-million emergency allocation from the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development, he would convene a meeting with the Ministry of Labour and Social Security to come up with further support in order to ensure that persons, particularly homeowners, were given assistance.In an interview with JIS News following the presentation, Mrs. Robinson said representatives of the Ministry are continuing their fieldwork to collect the relevant TRNs, so that the remaining 70 persons will get assistance.“The Ministry of Labour and Social Security stands ready to do its part in times of emergencies like this,” she said.Release: JIS Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp
Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has revealed Edinson Cavani took him under his wing during the pair’s time together at Paris Saint-Germain.Edouard has been in impressive form so far this campaign with scoring 12 goals in 26 appearances for Celtic across all competitions and he’s keen to play at the highest level.“When I was at PSG, he gave me advice every day. Whether it was about my positional sense, my finishing, even my speed, he spoke to me a lot.” Edouard said, according to Evening Times.“This gave me a massive amount of belief in myself that a great striker like him took time out to speak to me.”“He basically was responsible for me being a striker and he gave me confidence.“I was also there with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but he was different. I was a kid and that was it. He didn’t speak the same language as me so it was not easy to communicate.”Neymar can win the Ballon d’Or, says Ander Herrera Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 An “excited” Ander Herrera believes new Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Neymar is a contender for the Ballon d’Or alongside Kylian Mbappe.“Occasionally, he gave me a few instructions through signs, but there wasn’t a lot of exchanges between us.”Meanwhile, Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie insists the team will take the title challenge of Kilmarnock serious when the pair meet this weekend.“We’ll treat Kilmarnock with respect because they are where they are on merit – this isn’t a fluke,” said Christie.“They’ve played some good football and they’re always such a hard team to come up against, which I’m sure will be the case again this weekend.”“But the incentive is clear enough for us – win and we’ll be in first place and that’s where we want to be. A lot has been said about the number of games we’re being asked to play at the moment but we just need to win as many of them as possible and, hopefully, by the time we get to the winter break, we’ll be top of the league.”

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand insists Chelsea’s problems start with the lack of a proper striker at their focal point of attack.The Blues have suffered from a lack of goals due to the inconsistencies of strikers Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud, and recent reports suggest they’re closing in on a deal to sign Gonzalo Higuain on loan from Juventus.“Chelsea’s problems all stem from not having a number nine. There’s no focal point. I think this manager needs to play Kante in the holding position. He’s the best in the world there.” Ferdinand said, according to the Metro.Solskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“Hazard can play the false nine role but he doesn’t offer you as much. Two of the best players are playing out of position at the moment.”Ferdinand also slammed the performance of Jorginho for Chelsea against Arsenal, saying: “Jorginho’s someone who sets the tempo of a game. You get the ball into him through the middle third of the pitch, he’s very good.”“[But] How many assists has he got this season? Around 2,000 passes, no assists. He’s not a great defender. Once a game gets like this against the big teams, he gets overrun in midfield.”
San Diego Zoo Safari Park celebrates the birth of 97th Southern White Rhino SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A 9-day-old male southern white rhino spent Friday morning exploring his habitat at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park — running around a little, napping, checking out all his surroundings, napping, nursing from mom and napping some more. The curious little ungulate even went face-to-face with a cape buffalo, knowing mom was nearby to protect him.The baby rhino, named Justin, was born the evening of Feb. 7 to mom Kacy, in the 60-acre East African Plains enclosure. The calf weighed an estimated 125 pounds at birth, and keepers report he is very healthy and is developing on track. It is estimated that Justin will gain 100 pounds a month in his first year, and when full grown he could weigh 4,000 to 5,000 pounds.“Justin is very cute, and he’s beginning to show lots of personality,” said Matt Gelvin, lead keeper, San Diego Zoo Safari Park. “He is very playful—running, jumping—and loves checking out everything around him, including the animals that share his habitat. However, his mom Kacy is a very attentive and protective mom. She is fairly tolerant of the other rhinos and animals being curious about the baby, but she is definitely keeping a close eye on them.”There are an estimated 18,000 southern white rhinos remaining in the wild. The southern white rhino is classified as Near Threatened on the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List of Threatened Species, due to poaching threats and illegal trafficking of rhino horn. Currently, a rhino dies every eight hours in South Africa, due to poaching.San Diego Zoo Global has been working for more than 40 years, along with other accredited zoos, to keep a sustainable population of rhinos safe under human care while working to protect them in sanctuaries in their native habitats. To further its commitment to rhino conservation, San Diego Zoo Global recently built the Nikita Kahn Rhino Rescue Center to house six southern white rhinos brought in from South Africa. The 3.5-acre state-of-the-art animal facility is dedicated to the conservation of white rhinos, with a focus on assisted reproductive techniques.Rhinos are very important to the ecosystems in which they reside. Southern white rhinos live in the savannas of Africa. These gentle giants are mega-herbivores, grazing on grasses—which helps maintain the diverse African grasslands, increasing plant diversity and providing grazing areas for other animals that share their natural habitat, such as elephants, zebras, antelope and gazelles.Kacy’s calf is the 97th southern white rhino calf born at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park since 1972. Rhino calf Justin and his mom can best be seen roaming their habitat from the Park’s Africa Tram Safari, a Caravan Safari, a Balloon Safari, or from the Park’s new giraffe cam (showcasing a multitude of animals including rhinos, giraffes, African crowned cranes, gazelles and others) viewable online at sdzsafaripark.org/giraffe-cam.Video Playerhttp://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/baby-rhino-b-roll.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundmejs.download-file: http://www.kusi.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/baby-rhino-b-roll.mp4?_=100:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

2013 could be pivotal for Smith, Stewart, BurkmanIt’s come down to decision time.Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt — in an Aug. 11 tweet from his account floated a single question: “Leavitt for Congress?”There’s since been little from him on the topic, but that hasn’t kept down a flood of questions about a race featuring Leavitt and freshman Republican Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler of Camas.What party would Leavitt run with? Does he have enough experience? Can he raise the money? Will he find enough support?Either way, Leavitt — or whoever else may want to challenge Herrera Beutler — will likely need to step forward soon to get started trying to unseat her in 2012. Leavitt’s said he’s likely to make an announcement this week.A rumor is floating in Democratic circles that the party has someone else in mind: someone new, someone female.But if or until that person steps forward, Leavitt, 40, remains the most visible and well-known person to take on Herrera Beutler, 33. Another candidate, Jon Haugen, has also announced he’ll run as a conservative Democrat in the race.It’s not a certainty that Leavitt would have a smooth time ascending the political ranks. The mayor, only two years into his first four-year term (following five years on city council), may alienate some by trying to move on too quickly.“He was really charged to become mayor of Vancouver,” noted former Mayor Royce Pollard, whom Leavitt defeated in 2009 ahard-fought race. That rift hasn’t healed. “People wonder here about his dedication to city of Vancouver.”But, observers noted that if Leavitt, or anyone else, wants to take Herrera Beutler down, it’s best to do it before she becomes an established member of the House.
Vancouver is one of three school organizations in the state to receive a $140,000 grant to help students stay in high school.Vancouver Public Schools, the Granite Falls School District and Educational Service District 113 are getting the two-year “Building Bridges” grants, the state’s office of public instruction announced Tuesday.Each grant winner will get $50,000 for the first year and $90,000 for the second to build a dropout warning and intervention system.The money also will fund specialists who will provide at-risk students with the academic and social support they need to graduate.Karla Schlosser, Vancouver’s administrator for special services, said the district will hold off on hiring until January, just in case the Washington Legislature’s special session undercuts the “Building Bridges” program.If things go according to plan, Schlosser said, Vancouver will hire one specialist to split time between Columbia River and Skyview high schools. That staff member will be known as an “educational advocate.”The advocate, Schlosser said, “will work with kids to provide options when they are not being successful.“What are the barriers to their being successful in school? That person will be trained in programs in the district and in the county, and will offer other resources. Sometimes, the barriers are not related to education,” Schlosser said.The “Building Bridges” project is just one element in the effort to boost the district high school graduation rate, said Mike Stromme, associate superintendent.
PORTLAND (AP) — A juvenile court judge decided Monday that an 11-year-old boy who flashed a gun on a MAX train in Portland last week will wear an electronic monitoring device and live with his aunt.KATU reports the boy is the brother of Yashanee Vaughn, a 14-year-old who was killed last year.His mother told the judge she’s dealing with grief and that the aunt could provide more structure for her son.The state is certifying the aunt as a foster parent.
Clark County’s forest plan for Camp Bonneville has been certified by two organizations.The Forest Stewardship Council and American Tree Farm System’s Sustainable Forest Initiative both signed off on the county’s plan to use selective thinning to create a healthier environment for the trees and reduce fire danger, Jim Vandling, county forester, wrote in a press release issued Wednesday.Proceeds will be used for forest management at Camp Bonneville and road maintenance.Homeowners near the 3,480-acre property have voiced concerns about the threat of fire.Last year, the county assumed full ownership of Camp Bonneville, a former military post the U.S. Army used for training from 1909 to 1995. The Army has agreed to continue paying for locating and removing munitions and cleaning lead-contaminated soil.
