Bahamas to take 15-member delegation to CARICOM meeting set in Mo’Bay, Jamaica Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:CARICOM, daniel malcolm, UK Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales – The United Kingdom has acknowledged to MM on several occasions that it has received a report from Caricom which included advice on the current TCI Constitution…and yet, nothing. No word, no formal reply or opinion to TCIG or Caricom and nothing to demonstrate that it even counts worth the while what are the concerns of the 20 nations of the Caribbean Community related to the Turks and Caicos Islands, which is an Associate member of Caricom.Nonetheless, Chairman of the Constitutional Review Committee Mr Daniel Malcolm says this time, the UK will pay attention, that this exercise of public consultation is not cosmetic.

The American Soybean Association (ASA) and Pioneer, a DuPont Company, are seeking nominees for the 2003 ASA/DuPont Young Leader Program. The Young Leader Program is recognized throughout the soybean industry for its longstanding tradition of identifying and cultivating excellent leaders, many of whom now play an integral role in the promotion of agriculture and the success of the soybean industry.”The ASA/DuPont Young Leader Program is a dynamic learning experience,” said ASA President Dwain Ford. “The instructors and program content are of the highest quality. This program provides information that the participant can start using immediately, not only in their business, but personally as well. As a graduate of the Young Leader program, I would encourage anyone who has an interest in improving their leadership skills to apply for the program. It will be an investment that will provide unlimited opportunities in the future.”The ASA/DuPont Young Leader Program is looking for soybean farmers who are innovative, assertive, young (or new) to leadership, and looking to make their mark in agriculture. The program, which began in 1984, has a tremendous record of success. Hundreds of program alumni have assumed significant leadership responsibilities in state and national agricultural organizations. Young Leaders are making a difference in agriculture by ensuring that the voice of the American farmer is heard.”Applicants selected as Young Leaders have an excellent opportunity to learn the key leadership skills necessary for high profile roles within agriculture,” said Kevin Turnblad, Pioneer Key Account Manager. “They do this through interactive training that utilizes instructors and materials that have been very successful in the real-world. Participants can also learn from each other and through the use of case studies of topics that are ‘front-burner’ and pivotal to the future of agriculture. If anyone is interested in making a difference in agriculture, this program is for you.”The 2003 class of Young Leaders and their spouses will participate in a challenging and educational leadership experience Feb. 24-26, 2003, in Charlotte, NC. This seminar will include leadership and issues training, and provide an opportunity for participants to meet and learn from other Young Leaders from around the country. The class will also take part in the Commodity Classic, Feb. 27–Mar. 1, 2003, rounding out a full week of learning, networking, and personal growth. In November 2003, participants will travel to Pioneer’s headquarters in Johnston, Iowa to complete their training.Nomination forms for the 2003 ASA/DuPont Young Leader Program have been mailed to all ASA members.

Executive search firm Charlton Morris has introduced unlimited holiday for its senior consultants to help staff achieve a better work-life balance.The Leeds-based organisation is offering unlimited holiday to consultants who have been with the business for two years or more as a way to reward staff for their continued hard work, as well as provide employees with more freedom and flexibility to encourage a better work-life balance.Eligible employees will be able to book time off work whenever they want. Currently, 14 of the organisation’s 41 employees are eligible for the benefit.The unlimited holiday is one of several benefits introduced in the first week of January. Other new initiatives include reduced working hours and extended lunch breaks.The new benefits will sit alongside established initiatives including subsidised gym membership, social outings and holiday incentives to destinations such as Las Vegas and Barcelona.Andy Shatwell (pictured), managing director at Charlton Morris, said: “We pride ourselves on doing things differently, and we want to stand out from the crowd when it comes to recruitment firms in Leeds. One thing we really wanted to move away from was the idea that recruitment is a ferocious industry which involves high turnover of staff and, while lucrative, [it’s] not sustainable.“These measures were all geared towards making Charlton Morris a place to have a successful career for our current and future employees, and to make us stand out from the competition.”

What was the impetus for writing this book?I wrote this book as a way to begin the conversation between parents, caregivers, and teachers and children about their emotional well-being. One of the things I have learned from my work with parents is that there is a strong desire to connect with our children emotionally, however, sometimes we don’t know how. This book is a way to get the conversation about our children and their feelings started. A lot of children’s books place emphasis on physical activity, and academic achievement and while those issues are of great importance, this is a way that lets us know that their mental health is just as important. What’s the overall theme?The overall theme is exploring our feelings. The book contains five short stories, covering Mindfulness meditation, bullying, peer pressure, feeling shy, and self-esteem, and in each of these stories, the goal is to allow children to understand that their feelings, along with the feelings of others should be recognized and validated. What surprised you about the development of the book?I was surprised to learn that there is much more material to cover as it relates to providing children with images and storylines that they can relate to, especially as it pertains to their emotional well-being. From this observation, I made the decision to take each of the themes presented in ‘Let’s Talk About It’ and turn them into their own separate books, which is exciting! For what audience is your book written?My audience is children up to age 11/12…and the adults who love them! I feel as though we can all learn to express our feelings, and by having our children express how they feel about certain situations, we, as adults have the opportunity to create a safe space by relating to those shared emotions. What one thing do you most want the reader to learn?I want readers to learn that their feelings are important—they matter. I also want them to learn the connection between their bodies and their emotions. In the Mindful of Me story, I introduce readers to the practice of Mindful meditation, which calls for us to become in tune with our bodies and notice and honor those “butterflies” we may feel in our stomachs which signal anxiety or feeling nervous, and different techniques we can use to calm ourselves. What did you learn during the writing process?A lot! I learned that done is better than perfect. A lot of time we delay the process because we want it to be perfect. If it is done, we can then re-submit it and make the necessary changes. Any advice for aspiring writers?Do it….people need to read your work and get lost in your words.
While all the kids these days spend their time fawning over HD graphics and realistic physics in video games, a small but dedicated group of gamers is continuing to grind away on classic arcade cabinets. Even after decades, new world record high scores are being posted on some of these iconic games. Fans of the obstacle dodging game Frogger have a new champion this week, and he’s Michael Smith, a 45 year-old software engineer from Virginia.Smith’s winning score was 971,440, which pretty thoroughly destroyed the previous high score of 896,980 from Paul Laffaye in 2010. Interestingly, much of the impetus for this battle goes back to a mid-90s episode of the sitcom Seinfeld. In one famous episode, George Costanza goes to great lengths to save a Frogger machine that contains his high score of 860,630. Laffaye’s record was widely reported for being the first one to actually break Costanza’s fictional score.Smith says his quest to win the record began when he saw an article on Laffaye beating the Seinfeld record. It didn’t take long to succeed once Smith got into it. He set up a camera on a tripod to film his progress. He would later rewatch the videos to learn where he went wrong and what the best routes were. This, ladies and gentlemen, is determination.There’s no giant cash prize at the end of the struggle for Smith, just a little recognition. Apparently he’s hoping to continue on after a little break to reach 1 million points. Hats off to him.More at patrickscottpatterson via Kotaku
LaVar Ball is the best known athlete parent in sports today.

In September, Amazon launched its Alexa Gadgets Toolkit into beta, allowing hardware makers to build accessories that pair with Amazon Echo over Bluetooth. Today, one of the most memorable (and quite ridiculous) examples of that technology is going live. Yes, I’m talking about the Alexa-enabled Big Mouth Billy Bass, of course. You know, the talking fish that hangs on the wall, and has now been updated to respond to Alexa voice commands?Amazon first showed off this technology over a year ago at an event at its Seattle headquarters, then this fall confirmed the talking fish would be among the debut products to use its new Alexa Gadgets Toolkit.The toolkit lets developers build Alexa-connected devices that use things like lights, sound chips or even motors, in order to work with Alexa interfaces like notifications, timers, reminders, text-to-speech and wake-word detection.The talking fish can actually do much of that.According to the company’s announcement, Big Mouth Billy Bass can react to timers, notifications and alarms, and can play Amazon Music. It also can lip sync to Alexa spoken responses when asked for information about the weather, news or random facts.And it will sing an original song, “Fishin’ Time.”When the gadget is plugged in and turned on, it responds: “Woo-hoo, that feels good!”(Oh my god, who is getting me this for Christmas?)“This is not your father’s Big Mouth Billy Bass,” said vice president of Product Development at Gemmy Industries, Steven Harris, in a statement about the product’s launch. “Our new high-tech version uses the latest technology from Amazon to deliver a hilarious and interactive gadget that takes everyday activities to a fun new level.”The fish can be wall-mounted or displayed using an included tabletop easel, the company says.[embedded content]The pop culture gag gift was first sold back in 1999, and is now updating its brand for the Alexa era.Obviously, Big Mouth Billy Bass is not a product that was ever designed to be taken seriously — but it should be interesting to see if the updated, “high-tech version” has any impact on this item’s sales.The idea to integrate Alexa into the talking fish actually began in 2016, when an enterprising developer hacked the fish to work with Alexa, much to the internet’s delight. His Facebook post showcasing his work attracted 1.8 million views.The Alexa-connected fish is $39.99 on Amazon.com.The fish isn’t the only Alexa product Gemmy has developed. It’s also launching a twerking Santa and Christmas Bear — also both $40 — that dance to the beats of Amazon Music and react to Alexa notifications, timers and alarms.When you say “Alexa,” the plushies start dancing. These toys, too, use the Alexa Gadgets Toolkit, the company says.(h/t Business Insider)

Activities that visitors can participate in include:Dressing up in replicas of vintage radiation protection apparel, including lead-lined leather aprons and “bucket” head gear;Trying to beat the clock by assembling a scale-model replica of a World War II portable X-ray unit in less than 8 minutes, which was the expectation for radiographers serving in medical field units in the U.S. Army; andInteracting with four touch tables that allow viewers to peek inside digital copies of historical books and manuscripts, learn about the profession’s leaders and build a collage of the human body out of assorted medical images.
According to some federal contracting documents, the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are placing an undisclosed number of covert surveillance cameras, reported Quartz on Saturday. The Federal Procurement Data System shows that DEA has paid roughly $22,000 to a company named Cowboy Streetlight Concealments LLC for “video recording and reproducing equipment” since June this year. The recent acquisitions from Cowboy Streetlight Cocealmets have been funded by ICE offices in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. In addition to streetlights, these surveillance cameras are also placed inside traffic barrels. Christie Crawford, who owns Cowboy Streetlight Concealments with her husband told Quartz that she can’t reveal the details about the company’s federal contracts: “We do streetlight concealments and camera enclosures. Basically, there are businesses out there that will build concealments for the government and that’s what we do. They specify what’s best for them, and we make it. And that’s about all I can probably say.” But she did add that: “I can tell you this—things are always being watched. It doesn’t matter if you’re driving down the street or visiting a friend, if government or law enforcement has a reason to set up surveillance, there’s great technology out there to do it.” Last week, a solicitation was issued by DEA for “concealments made to house network PTZ camera, cellular modem, cellular compression device”. The solicitation shows that they intended to give the contract to Obsidian Integration LLC an Oregon company with a sizable number of federal law enforcement customers. Chad Marlow, a senior advocacy and policy counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union, told Quartz that efforts to put cameras in street lights have been proposed before by local law enforcement as part of a “smart” LED streetlight system: “It basically has the ability to turn every streetlight into a surveillance device, which is very Orwellian to say the least. In most jurisdictions, the local police or department of public works are authorized to make these decisions unilaterally and in secret. There’s no public debate or oversight.” To read the full report, head over to the Quartz website.

Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement In recent years, the foreign maids’ work conditions _ long hours, little pay and alleged physical abuse _ have come under increasing scrutiny in Lebanon. Some private beaches in the country have barred foreign workers, and not all have complied with a Tourism Ministry directive earlier this year to halt such practices, Houry said.He lauded the social media campaign protesting Saturday’s airport incident, calling it a sign of change.“The latest incident shows that more and more people in Lebanon are angry and tired of this racism that exists,” Houry said, while urging the government to do more to protect foreign workers.“What we have been missing are concrete new policies, a new enforcement mechanism to put an end to it,” he said. “It is no longer the time for nice words.”Abed Shaheen, a Lebanese businessman based in Dubai, witnessed Saturday’s incident while waiting to board a flight at Beirut’s Rafik Hariri International Airport. The flight was delayed and passengers, including about two dozen domestic workers from Asia, were talking among themselves, he said.At one point, a woman staffing the counter at the gate took a loudspeaker and announced, “Filipino people, stop talking,” Shaheen said. He said the woman’s male colleague corrected her, telling her the travelers were from Nepal, not the Philippines. The woman proceeded to admonish the group twice more, giggling as she did so. Shaheen said he was outraged and walked up to the counter to complain.
