ECCO brings relief to 5 of its members

LocalNews ECCO brings relief to 5 of its members by: Dominica Vibes News – December 23, 2015 Share Tweetcenter_img 201 Views   no discussions Share Chairman of ECCO, McCarthy Marie presenting the cheque to Augustine Adrien BannisThe Eastern Caribbean Collective Organization for Music Rights Inc. (ECCO) has donated to five (5) of its members who were adversely affected by Tropical Storm Erika.A donation of one thousand dollars was made to each of the members on Wednesday 23 December 2015 at the Calypso House in Bath Estate, Roseau.The recipients are Augustine Adrien Bannis, Pierre Labassiere, Aaron James, Marcel Mark, andCarla Merida Stoute known as Joy Stoute. Mark was absent due to illness while Stoute was not granted time off from work. Chairman of ECCO, McCarthy Marie said the board of directors, assessed the situation here following the passage of the storm in August during its November board of directors meeting and thought of contributing to its members.“We took the decision that some of our members who were affected, that we should try to make a contribution to them so that they could at least get some of what they lost back,” Marie explained.“We are not giving everybody the exact amount of loss that they made because we don’t have that amount of money to do. We put aside five thousand dollars for that donation,” he added.Marie said he canvassed the different members to find out who were adversely affected and what the extent of their loss was, and decided to give certain amount to different people depending on their situation.“Meaning to say those persons who had a well-paying job, who had other resources that they could easily tap [into], even if they might have the biggest loss, we didn’t give them the most money, it was more or less in association with your capacity to have other monies and the amount of loss you made,” Marie informed.– / 4last_img read more

Inaugural survey and mapping of Dominica’s soil completed

first_imgLocalNews Inaugural survey and mapping of Dominica’s soil completed by: – January 18, 2018 Tweet Sharing is caring! Share Sharecenter_img Share 177 Views   no discussions Press ReleaseThe Project Coordination Unit (PCU) of the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR)/Disaster Vulnerability Reduction Project (DVRP) under the Ministry of Health and Environment, held the inaugural mission for the commencement of the national soils survey and mapping sub-project. The Soils Survey Technical Working Group guided by the Consultant Dr. Stephen Dadio and comprised of representatives from the PCU, Division of Agriculture, DOWASCO, Physical Planning Division, Office of Disaster Management, Lands and Surveys Division, and the Ministry of Public Works and Ports, ably supported the successful outcome of the mission.The mission was held from 8th – 12th January 2018 and entailed data review of existing soils data for the Commonwealth of Dominica. The main objectives of the mission was to undertake a comprehensive needs assessment to include recommendations to improve institutional capacity as well as an in-depth data review of existing literature and data on soils characteristics. As part of the activities, the team visited various sites island wide observing soil types and collecting representative soil samples for rapid testing.The eventual outcome under this sub-project will be the identification of soil types, characteristics and properties to inform decisions in relation to agriculture (suitability of soil types to various crops); construction (civil and structural engineering purposes); land use planning and water and natural resources management. These key inputs are necessary for assessing watershed behaviour, soil erosion, land use suitability and risk analysis, particularly with respect to land slip potential which ultimately provide data to guide long and short-term development and investment decisions.Additionally, due to Dominica’s unique climate conditions and given the challenges faced with regards to its very steep and finely dissected topography which accounts for a significant percentage of the country’s productive base, the development of detailed scaled soil maps is even more critical to guide agricultural, forestry and infrastructural developments. This activity is expected to be completed in January 2020.The PCU would like to thank the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica, the World Bank, the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) and representatives from the various line ministries as we work together to reduce vulnerability by building resilience!last_img read more

Report: Chelsea 4-1 Bristol Academy

first_imgJade Boho-Sayo and Caroline Weir made competitive debuts for the Vixens whilst Chelsea’s record signing, England World Cup hero Fran Kirby, was not involved in the game following her move from Reading.Boho-Sayo was lively throughout, hitting an effort narrowly over the bar early on, before Gilly Flaherty’s close-range finish gave Chelsea the lead in the sixth minute.Gemma Davison put the hosts in control with a brilliant solo effort soon after, floating past two defenders before calmly finishing past Mary Earps in the Vixens goal.The impressive Boho-Sayo gave Bristol some hope, grabbing a debut goal just after the break, before any hopes of a comeback were extinguished by a Ji So-Yun penalty after the South Korean was fouled by Frankie Brown.Millie Farrow added a late fourth to seal a comfortable win for the league leaders, leaving the Vixens still searching for that elusive first league win of the season.See the Vixens new stars as well as several of England’s World Cup squad as Bristol Academy face Manchester City Women at the Stoke Gifford Stadium on Saturday, July 18th at 3pm – tickets start at just £5 for adults and £3 concessions, click here to book your tickets.last_img read more

Tigers call on McKenzie to boost batting against Windies

first_imgFORMER South Africa Test captain Neil McKenzie was scheduled to link up with Bangladesh yesterday, after he was appointed batting consultant to the touring side for the ongoing white-ball series against West Indies.In a statement, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said McKenzie would work with the team until next year’s Cricket World Cup in England and Wales.There will be little time for McKenzie to settle in as Bangladesh clash with the Windies in the second One-Day International of the three-match series here today at the national stadium at Providence.Bangladesh won Sunday’s opener at the same venue by 48 runs, to register their first success of the tour. They were crushed in the preceding two-Test series, undermined by their brittle batting.In fact, they failed to post 200 in any of their four innings in Antigua and Jamaica, and were embarrassed for a record-low 43, in the first innings of the opening Test at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground when they crashed to an innings and 219-run defeat inside three days.McKenzie fills the void left empty by former Sri Lankan batsman Thilan Samaraweera, who was axed following last year’s ICC Champions Trophy in England.High performance coach Simon Helmot has served as batting coach on recent tours.Bangladesh play their final ODI against the Windies on Saturday at Warner Park in St Kitts before turning their attention to a three-match T20 International series beginning next Tuesday at the same venue, and ending with a double-header at the Central Broward Regional Park in Fort Lauderdale on August 4 and 5.

Feel free to delete this if someone has already made a 2020 CFL thread. In terms of uniform changes for 2020, I have a feeling that we will have a different situation from what we saw in the short-lived Adidas era. I think we will likely see at least one new uniform this season. I have heard the Alouettes are doing a fan-design contest for a new third jersey and uniform for 2021. For 2020, so far, I have not heard anything – although I love the drop-shadowless Eskimos logo. I do think we will see some new alternate designs in the New Era era of the CFL.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy could ‘give in’ if Mauricio Pochettino asks…

first_imgTwo days ago, we relayed news from Spain that Mauricio Pochettino ‘will not hesitate’ to leave Tottenham Hotspur for Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain.On March 7th, Mundo Deportivo reported the former Southampton manager is a ‘big favourite’ to replace Santiago Solari at the Spanish capital club.Another Catalan newspaper, Sport, takes a look at four candidates who are favourites to become the next manager of the 13-time European champions and this includes the Spurs boss, Zinedine Zidane, Jose Mourinho and Germany coach Joachim Löw.Zidane stepped down as Real Madrid last summer and Pochettino was approached then to be the Frenchman’s successor. However, he continued with his current employer because of his loyalty towards the English club. Sport claims things could be different this time around and if Real Madrid are willing to pay the fee to the Premier League club to secure Pochettino’s services, and if the latter asks to leave the club, then Spurs chairman Daniel Levy could ‘give in’.There isn’t anything concrete on who will be the next manager of Real Madrid and as of now it’s just talks about the potential candidates.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comTop Successful Single Men in Tung ChungDating.comUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoCNBC InternationalHere’s How Big Businesses in Singapore Are Managing the Impact of COVID-19.CNBC InternationalUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndo With Ajax eliminating Real Madrid from last 16 of the Champions League just days after they were knocked out of the Copa del Rey, it is no surprise they will be looking for a new manager.last_img read more

Premier League clubs discuss options but left in limbo

first_imgMANCHESTER, England, (Reuters) – Premier League clubs yesterday discussed possible models for finishing the current season but did not consider a specific date for play to resume while U.K. government lockdown restrictions remain in place. Representatives of the 20 teams took part in a conference call to look at various possible options for restarting the season and remain committed to completing the fixtures rather than voiding the season.But after the government announced on Thursday that the lockdown would remain in place for at least another three weeks, all options remain hypothetical.A Premier League spokesperson said: “Today’s Shareholders’ Meeting provided an opportunity to discuss possible scheduling models. It remains our objective to complete the 2019-20 season but at this stage all dates are tentative while the impact of COVID-19 develops. “In common with other businesses and industries, the Premier League and our clubs are working through complex planning scenarios.“We are actively engaging with stakeholders, including broadcast partners, and our aim is to ensure we are in a position to resume playing when it is safe to do so and with the full support of the Government.“The health and wellbeing of players, coaches, managers, club staff and supporters are our priority and the League will only restart when medical guidance allows.” There was no discussion during the meeting of the possible complications that could be caused by the season running beyond June 30 — when some player and manager contracts run out.World soccer’s governing body FIFA has stated that contracts should be adjusted to reflect the actual end of the season. However, that issue could be open to challenge under English law.The Football League (EFL), which represents the three divisions below the Premier League, has said that teams should not return to training before May 16 “at the earliest”. Should teams be allowed to train it is expected they would need two-to-three weeks to get prepared for the return to action, making the earliest possible return in June.But with the ban on mass public gatherings likely to be one of the last restrictions to be removed, rescheduled games could well be held behind closed doors.last_img read more
