Dr. Rufus Ewing has indeed been in touch with the government of Dominica following the devastation caused there by Tropical Storm Erika. The storm also had the TCI in its cross hairs until it shifted significantly enough ‘west’ that these islands were spared a direct hit. Director at the Office, Althea Been said: “Following the passage of TS Erika, the Premier did send formal correspondence to the Prime Minister, Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit offering words of comfort at this difficult time and condolences for the lives lost.” Been also informed that, “The Ministerial Government is currently considering the level of assistance whether financially or otherwise that will be offered to Dominica. This will be formally considered by the Cabinet.” Dominica is a CARICOM nation and recorded some 25 deaths, with as many as 50 people still missing. PM Skerrit is on record saying the storm has cost the country tens of millions in damage and has set development back 20 years. Last night Magnetic Media reported that the Sandals Foundation, despite not having any resort development in Dominica, has launched a relief fund online. 27 dead, a dozen missing in Dominica after hurricane Maria Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Post Maria: Dominica will rebuild with concretelast_img read more

Minister Thompson – GB Should Be Centre for Arbitration in The Bahamas

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, September 22, 2017 – Grand Bahama – As the Government of The Bahamas continues its quest to make Grand Bahama the centre for industry and innovation, and the entrepreneurial hub, it is important to embrace new ways to resolve matters and maintain respect and peace among members of the community, according to Minister of State for Grand Bahama, Senator the Hon. Kwasi Thompson.The Minister’s remarks came during the opening of the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Seminar, which was held at Pelican Bay Resort, Thursday, September 21, 2017.   The seminar was attended by local lawyers, business owners and executives of the Grand Bahama Port Authority.Minister Thompson told attendees that as with all new initiatives, local support is needed in order to be effective.   Therefore, he suggested partnership and cooperation among Grand Bahamians as a major component of Grand Bahama’s revitalization.“And it can all start here, at a seminar like this,” said Minister Thompson.  “Grand Bahama really should be the centre of arbitration for The Bahamas. I say that without a doubt.”As the Minister of State in the Office of the Prime Minister for Grand Bahama, Mr. Thompson threw his full support behind ADR Bahamas and the role they play on the island of Grand Bahama, which, he pointed out, is a commitment to the resolution of disputes and issues by means other than litigation.He noted that there are always individuals seeking confidential, quick and convenient settlements.“As we all know sometimes waiting for a court appointment or going through the process can, at times, prove to be tedious,” noted Minister Thompson.   “Arbitration seeks to resolve disputes fairly and quickly.   The resolution is recognized as equivalent to a court decision, in most cases, and both parties can move and have their disputes dealt with.“It is my hope that ADR Bahamas will grow in popularity and eventually lead to an international arbitration centre that we seek to have operating here in Grand Bahama.   This will bring opportunities for Bahamians, as well as for the business community and those persons who wish to do business and invest in The Bahamas.”By: Andrew CoakleyPhoto Captions:OPENS SEMINAR – Minister of State for Grand Bahama in the Office of The Prime Minister, Senator the Hon.

Danny Higginbotham Mourinhos manmanagement skills cost him his job

first_imgFormer Manchester United defender Danny Higginbotham claims Jose Mourinho lost his job at Man Utd due to his man-management skill at Old Trafford.Higginbotham also believed that the sense of freedom that United now bears under the new leadership of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was there during Mourinho’s time at tSolskjaer has already given United six wins from his opening six games.“The frustrating thing from Mourinho’s perspective will be that the system Solskjaer’s now playing, he played earlier in the season and had great success,” Higginbotham said via Sky Sports.“He then changed to a back three against West Ham and that seemed to be the beginning of the downfall, where it started to go wrong for him.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer 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.“There seems to be a real sense of freedom among the team now.“I was delighted when Mourinho came to the club because I thought he could pick them up again. He did well at first but then it dropped off.“Towards the end he would pick battles with players and that is not going to help. Gone are the days when you can dig out individuals and expect them still to respond in a positive manner.“If you look at all the top managers now, the strongest thing in their armoury is man-management skills. Solskjaer has gone in and said ‘you are all good players, how can I get you into the team and play to your strengths?’.”last_img read more

Elon Musk Breaks Down His Plan for Mars in Reddit AMA

first_img Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now October 24, 2016 Last month, SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk spoke at the International Astronautical Congress in Guadalajara, Mexico, about his plan to get humans to Mars, and beyond possibly starting as early as 2024.Though the cost is high — $10 billion to make the Interplanetary Transport System (ITS) and $500,000 to get a seat on the ship — not to mention the inherent danger of traveling to and aiming to live on another planet, Musk is characteristically undeterred in achieving his goal, and took to Reddit over the weekend for an AMA to answer any questions people might have about becoming a “spacefaring civ.”Most of his answers were focused on the logistics, mechanics and minutia involved in building the rockets. He revealed that he anticipates releasing details and mockups about the habitable passenger portion of the ship within the next couple of years.When asked if there was any aspect of the technology that SpaceX had “nailed down” thus far, Musk answered, “not sure that we’ve really mastered anything yet. Maybe starting engines.”Related: Elon Musk Says We’re Likely Living In a Video Game. Are We?He also broke down his plan for building up a sustainable city on Mars. The first step is sending Dragon rockets on scouting missions “to figure out the best way to get water for the CH4/O2 Sabatier Reaction.” The Heart of Gold spaceship will go to Mars with the tools and equipment to set up the fuel plant. A crewed mission will follow to assemble the base and the plant and the last step is “to try to double the number of flights with each Earth-Mars orbital rendezvous, which is every 26 months, until the city can grow by itself.”In talking about the specs of the 42 engines of the reusable ITS rocket, Musk revealed himself to be a fan of the late science fiction writer Douglas Adams when he joked that “it had to be 42 for important scientific and fictional reasons,” before getting down to specifics. In Adams’ The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy, 42 is discovered to be the answer to “what is the meaning of life?” 2 min readcenter_img Enroll Now for Free This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.last_img read more
