A new system to ensure compliance â€“ that includes automatic checks of drivers’ licences â€“ is now available from LicenceCheck.The software, called DAVIS, is designed to ensure that your drivers are legally entitled to be on the road, by checking every licence in your fleet.The internet-based system uses cloud computing, to enable easy access and security. It has a range of easy-to-use reports with colour coding, and can be used from any web browser on any device.Also, the system can grow with your fleet, and works with mixed fleets, where different driving entitlements are required.A powerful autofill capability adds your vehicle details, road fund licence and MoT information automatically (using DLVA, SMMT and DVLA data).This ensures that adding a vehicle is fast and accurate, and all fields are properly completed.Useful features include prompts and reminders to drivers and managers about important dates and actions to be completed. There is also a news broadcast to managers and drivers so that important information is easily disseminated.The next two months will see more modules added including telematics, foreign driving licence document recognition and expenses management. Early 2016 will see tachograph, replacement vehicle hire, driver assessment and training added.Says LicenceCheck MD Richard Brown: â€œOffering powerful reporting facilities, DAVIS uses technology to meet your requirements in the most efficient and cost-effective way. This is different to many competitor products that rely on extensive manual intervention to manage services and provide reports.â€
The Ministry of Health has announced that there are no confirmed cases and no outbreak of the H1N1 Influenza commonly known as Swine Flu in Dominica.This follows media reports of confirmed cases of Swine Flu in St Vincent and Barbados, which the Ministry said it has noted.In light of the outbreak in neighboring islands , the Ministry of Health is monitoring the situation closely and wishes to assure the public that all systems for response to influenza cases are in place. However, the Ministry would like to remind the public to practice good personal hygiene to protect themselves and others from acquiring the influenza (flu) virus. Symptoms of the Influenza virus include:Sudden high fever (over 38°C or 100°F), sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, coughing, headache, body aches and fatigue.Persons experiencing Influenza-like symptoms and any signs of faintness, weakness or breathing difficulty should seek medical attention immediately.The most common method of transmission of the influenza (flu) virus is through droplets released into the air from the coughs and sneezes of an infected person.This can happen when droplets are inhaled directly by people nearby. Some droplets containing the virus also fall on hard surfaces (like desks, tables,phones and door knobs). People get infected when they touch these surfaces and then touch their eyes, mouth or nose.Here are some of the things you can do to protect yourself and others from getting the Flu:-• Wash your hands with soap and water more now than usual;• If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizers and rub your hands together very hard for a minute or more;• Avoid shaking hands and kissing;• Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing• Throw away soiled tissue in a garbage bin after single use;• Avoid touching your face if your hands are not clean because cold and flu viruses enter your body through the eyes, nose and mouth;• If you are sick, stay away from crowds, young children and very elderly persons• Drink a lot of fluids, juice, water, coconut water and soups; The Ministry of Health will provide updated information to the public of any new developments.Dominica Vibes News Share Sharing is caring!

The bill passed the House 24-14, with opposition from Homer Representative Paul Seaton. Other ‘nays’ included: Reps. Claman, Colver, Drummond, Gara, Gruenberg, Guttenberg, Josephson, Kawasaki, Kito, Kreiss-Tomkins, Tarr, Tuck, and Wool. Two Legislators were excused: Reps. Lynn and Ortiz. Critics say the bill ties the state’s hands. Speaker Mike Chenault’s HB 132 initially stirred the pot with Governor Bill Walker… Speaker Chenault(R-Nikiski): “I’m hoping that we can finally come to an agreement on what we’re doing there as a state and what the meaning of it is and if we can do that, maybe we can move forward on other things.” Chenault says the State and partners need certainty as they pursue the largest LNG pipeline and liquefaction facility in the world… Walker’s office says the Governor hasn’t changed his views on the bill which he threatened to veto. Gov. Walker: “We have one project being driven by those who have competing projects around the world, but maybe at some point they decide they’d prefer their other projects rather than the one from Alaska, and we just can’t be in the situation that we don’t have an option ourselves that we can control.” If HB 132 passes the Senate, the Alaska Gasline Development Corp would be prohibited from pursuing any other project until one of three milestones is reached: the state or another party withdraws from Alaska LNG; Alaska LNG enters its next phase; or July 1, 2017.
