Tweet Senior Environmental Health Officer Ferdina Carbon has lamented that several school feeding programs on the island are not meeting health standards.Photo credit: wfp.orgCarbon told a workshop for secondary schools principals on Monday that some schools feeding program must be addressed urgently.She said some of the kitchenettes were not designed to prepare food and rodent infestations have been plaguing them.“The construction of some areas does not make it conducive for handling food. What we are doing is working with some of the schools to look at the short coming of the program and see how we can work together to see how we can improve it. We think that school feeding programs and kitchenettes must be the same standards as restaurants on the island because they are preparing food for people to eat, especially children who are more vulnerable.”According to Carbon several inspections were conducted and it was found that many of them are not meeting standards.“When we do the inspections and we meet the problem, we work with individuals to try to bring up the standards of the kitchen. If we go there and we meet rodent infestation, we maybe would have to close for a while and build some areas to prevent the rodents from coming in.”Carbon noted that the “rodents are in the community” and are drawn to the food therefore something must be done to address this.Dominica Vibes News 12 Views no discussions Share LocalNews Some school feeding programs not meeting health standards by: – March 7, 2012 Sharing is caring!

Randy Frye (R-Greensburg) co-authored legislation regarding broadcast technicians and engineers.Legislation co-authored by Representative Randy Frye (R-Greensburg) regarding broadcast technicians and engineers was signed into law by Governor Pence.To ensure that the public has quick access to emergency information, House Enrolled Act 1037 allows the appropriate personnel access to make any necessary repairs to communication devices.Under current Indiana law, broadcast engineers and technicians could be arrested for entering disaster-affected areas that haven’t been cleared by first responders.This makes it more difficult for these workers to do their job, and subsequently more difficult for people in those areas to get the information they need.“When a tornado struck the community of Marysville in 2012, the local radio station was not able to broadcast for more than two days,” said Rep. Frye. “Now more than ever, the public relies on radio and TV for information during times of emergency. When human lives could be at risk, it is extremely important that these information outlets are up and running.”Indiana will join 18 other states that currently have similar legislation when the law goes into effect July 1.

Mourinho was fined £25,000 for the comment made after the December 28 draw at Southampton, when he felt Cesc Fabregas was denied a spot kick and the midfielder was instead booked for diving. On Sunday, following the Premier League leaders’ 1-1 draw at home to the Saints, Mourinho was asked if Chelsea would be awarded another penalty this term. “It’s a question,” Mourinho said. The response came after Mourinho had felt Nemanja Matic was harshly penalised in Southampton being awarded a penalty, while Branislav Ivanovic had been denied a spot kick at the other end following a trip by Dusan Tadic. Chelsea’s official website on Wednesday wrote an article about the Blues receiving just two Premier League penalties this season after 28 games. The article, headlined ‘Penalty puzzle’, read: “Historically, this figure seems abnormally low. “The most recent was four-and-a-half months ago.” The article makes comparisons with recent seasons, including seven awarded to the Blues last term, when they finished third, and 12 in the 2009-10 season, the last time they were champions. It added: “This season’s tally of two unquestionably bucks the recent trend. “It could be that when teams have played the league leaders they have been particularly careful inside their own area. “We all have plenty of recollections suggesting this is not the case however.” The article then identifies examples when Chelsea might have been awarded spot-kicks, but were not. “From the first half of our very first league game, at Burnley, a number of key penalty-box decisions have not gone our way, Diego Costa the victim that evening after being felled trying to round the keeper,” the story read. Mourinho on Sunday bit his tongue on the Ivanovic incident, but made his feelings clear. Put to him that Ivanovic had fallen theatrically, dissuading referee Mike Dean from pointing to the spot, Mourinho deferred to his media officer sitting alongside, saying: “You have to control me, if not…” Without implicating their boss, Chelsea’s article may place scrutiny on Michael Oliver, the referee for Sunday’s match at Hull. Chelsea have addressed the “abnormally low” number of penalties they have received this season in apparent support of Jose Mourinho’s complaints of a “clear campaign” against the Blues.

Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Urias has thrown a total of 5 2/3 innings in two Cactus League appearances.“I’ve said since the beginning of spring, I’m fighting for a spot in the rotation,” Urias said through an interpreter Monday morning. “It seems this is the way they are managing me and I have to respect that.”The fact that he hasn’t been able to build his pitch count this spring or get many innings in games does not deter Urias.“This is baseball. You don’t know what is going to happen,” he said. “There are still three or four starts to go (in spring). You hope everyone stays healthy, first and foremost, but you really don’t know what can happen. I’m going to try to win a spot in the rotation.”Roberts is doing nothing to dissuade Urias, although the Dodgers seem to be lined up to open the season with a rotation of Clayton Kershaw, Kenta Maeda, Rich Hill, Brandon McCarthy and Alex Wood, with Hyun-Jin Ryu, like Urias, waiting in the wings. GLENDALE, Ariz. — Dodgers manager Dave Roberts will not close the door on Julio Urias opening the season with the Dodgers.But the calendar is doing it for him.Urias returned to camp Monday morning after fighting strep throat the previous three days. The 20-year-old left-hander said he felt weak for a couple days because the soreness and swelling in his throat made it difficult to eat. But antibiotics and his mother’s prescription — gargling with a mixture of apple cider vinegar, salt water and lime — have him feeling better.Urias was scheduled to go through a light workout Monday and throw a bullpen Tuesday with the Dodgers off Wednesday. Before falling ill, Urias was scheduled to throw three innings in a minor-league game Tuesday. That gets pushed back now, putting Urias even farther behind the rest of the candidates for the season-opening rotation — most of whom have stretched out to five innings in their most recent starts. “I think it would be unrealistic to say he’d start the season built up completely,” Roberts said Monday. “So the door’s not closed. But to say he would be built up to 100 pitches is probably unrealistic.“It just kind of goes to — which we’ve told Julio — there’s a certain amount of innings and we’re just trying to figure out a way to get those innings when it matters most. All the games matter, I get that. But we’re still trying to navigate it with Julio.”The Dodgers have not specified Urias’ innings limit this season, but a target of around 150 seems reasonable – he threw 127 2/3 last year between the majors and Triple-A, postseason included. In order for this year’s 150 to include a postseason run, though, the Dodgers need to put the brakes on Urias early.“Fair or unfair, right or wrong, that’s a luxury we do have,” Roberts said. “When McCarthy’s healthy, Alex (Wood) is throwing the ball the way he is and Kenta’s healthy and Kersh and Rich – we have the depth in our starting staff. So to curtail or monitor Julio’s innings as we’ve done is obviously prudent.“But we don’t want to make a decision right now because we all know things change on a daily basis when a guy takes the ball. We’re trying to keep that window open. Julio has bought in and there’s a trust there. It’s not easy, but there’s really no right or wrong way to handle this. He’s a special player.”Ethier examOutfielder Andre Ethier was scheduled to undergo an MRI to try to identify the cause of persistent stiffness in his lower back. Ethier was limited for most of two weeks before playing Friday and Saturday. But his back tightened up again Sunday morning and he was scratched from the lineup that afternoon.Ethier said he is not concerned about what the MRI might show, calling it a “precautionary” step to help the Dodgers’ training staff put together a treatment plan.“We’ve taken steps as far as we can and we just need to find out where we are and what we can do to give me relief for more than just a day or two,” Ethier said. “It’s a thing where if it’s the season I’d keep playing and find a way to get through it. But we’re not there.”
Golden State went on to lose, 123-109, and now trails Toronto in the series, 2-1.It turns out the “fan” that pushed Kyle Lowry is actually part-owner Mark Stevens. What should the punishment be? #NBAFinals pic.twitter.com/9ebIk4sxHU— Tim and Sid (@timandsid) June 6, 2019“There’s no place for that,” Lowry told reporters after the game. “He had no reason to touch me. He had no reason to reach over two seats and then say some vulgar language to me. There’s no place for people like that in our league.” Related News Mark Stevens is at the center of controversy during the NBA Finals.The Warriors minority owner pushed Kyle Lowry when the Raptors guard dove into the crowd early in the fourth quarter of Game 3. Stevens was then ejected from the arena. The Warriors condemned Stevens’ actions in a statement Thursday.“Mr. Stevens’ behavior last night did not reflect the high standards we hope to exemplify as an organization,” Golden State said in a statement. “We’re extremely disappointed in his actions and, along with Mr. Stevens, offer our sincere apology to Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors organization for this unfortunate misconduct. There is no place for such interaction between fans — or anyone — and players at an NBA game.”The league later announced Stevens had been fined $500,000 for his actions and cannot attend “NBA games and Warriors team activities for one year.”“A team representative must be held to the highest possible standard,” the NBA said in an earlier statement. “The conduct of Golden State Warriors investor Mark Stevens last night was beyond unacceptable and has no place in our league.”Lowry called for Stevens to be banned permanently.“More should be done,” Lowry told reporters, via the Washington Post. “He’s not a good look for the ownership group they have. A guy like that showing his true class, he shouldn’t be a part of our league. There’s no place for that.”Here’s what to know about Stevens:How did Mark Stevens become the Warriors’ minority owner?Stevens joined Golden State in August 2013. He purchased the shares of the team that were once held by Vivek Ranadive, who became the majority owner and chairman of the Kings earlier that summer. Terms of the deal were not disclosed publicly.“This is an incredible opportunity for me,” Stevens said in a statement at the time. “The Warriors have established themselves as a top flight organization in a very short time. The future of this team and franchise is unbelievably promising and I’m looking forward to contributing my part to help us achieve our goals.”What is Mark Stevens’ professional background?Stevens started as an associate at venture capital firm Sequoia Capital in 1989 and became a partner in 1993. He was instrumental in the firm investing in tech companies such as Google, PayPal and LinkedIn, among others, according to Forbes.

Tyson Fury predicted he would knock Deontay Wilder out in the second round of their rematch next month.Fury and Wilder will face off again at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena on Feb. 22 in their highly anticipated rematch. Their first fight ended in a draw in December 2018. Unsurprisingly, the Brit (29-0-1) believes he will be successful in taking Wilder out early.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a year”Deontay knows he was rocked three or four times in the last fight and I didn’t have the gas to finish him. This time I can turn that screwdriver until he is gone,” he told a news conference on Monday.”You are going to sleep in two rounds. I keep having the same dream about Round 2. I am playing poker and I get dealt the No. 2 card.”He is getting knocked out in Round 2, 100 percent.”I told you before our first fight that I was going to baptize you. And I did. But not even God can save you the second time around. I promise you that. #BombZquad #TilThisDay #WilderFury2 #February22 pic.twitter.com/ADRJHQEhgq— Deontay Wilder (@BronzeBomber) January 13, 2020Wilder, the WBC heavyweight titleholder, responded by questioning whether Fury, the lineal champion, truly believed in his own comments.”I mean, that’s what he believes in his heart. That’s what he believes. I always teach people when I speak — I say speak it, believe it, receive it,” the American said.”But the magic of it all is the belief, it’s the belief, and though he’s saying it, I don’t feel that in his energy that he believes that he’s going to do that. “If anything, I feel that he’s nervous, he’s very scared because of what happened the first time and I understand. This is boxing and sometimes fighters have to put up this front like it’s all good and nothing gets to them or nothing hurts them or we’re always acting tough and stuff because of the sport that we’re in, but I’m a realist.”He knows what happened. What you get knocked out like that and you don’t know how you got there or how you got up, it was the grace of God. That bothers you. That not only affects you, but it affects your environment, it affects your family as well because they know you’re going in there again with this monster and you know what he’s capable of doing.”It’s not an act, it’s something I do every time I’m out. I knock guys out. Every guy that I’ve faced, I’ve put him down, and it won’t be no different this time around, either.”
