Daryl Vaz, has clarified media issues linked to National Security Minister, Senator the Hon. Dwight Nelson’s health.Speaking at the weekly Post Cabinet press briefing Wednesday (October 21) at Jamaica House, Mr. Vaz said that he was concerned about some media reports which suggested that the Minister’s health problem, requiring him to seek medical attention overseas, may have been due to a misdiagnosis.The Minister explained that the advice of the doctors was based on Computed Axial Tomography (CAT) scans done in Jamaica, which indicated that there may have been a problem with an artery or a blood vessel to his intestines, as well as an inflamed gall bladder.“Let me make it clear that, the doctors gave advice based on the fact that if the diagnosis of a blockage in the artery or the blood vessel was in fact so, then that would have two sets of implications,” he explained.He said that one implication was that this it would require an operation that persons have not undergone in Jamaica in many years, if ever at all. The other being that post operation care would be very critical.“As such, the facilities and, especially the equipment, was something that was taken very seriously into consideration,” he said.Mr. Vaz noted that the Minister left the island by air ambulance, to undergo tests at a hospital recommended by the physicians at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI).“Minister Nelson underwent six days of tests…at the end of that six days, it was decided that they would not operate on Minister Nelson, but they would deal with it through medication first, and he would go back in six weeks time for a follow-up visit to see how improved he is,” he stated.Mr. Vaz said that the next visit will also determine whether the medication can allay a possible operation. He confirmed that Minister Nelson has returned to the island, is back at work and “is feeling fine.”“I just want to say again to the doctors in Jamaica, that took care of Senator Nelson, that we appreciate all that was done for him, including the advice that was given in terms of facilitating him to go and get additional tests and consultations with a number of doctors,” he concluded.

Toyota‘s finish at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans was nothing short of heartbreaking – and now we know why it happened.On the very last lap of the race, the No. 5 Toyota TS 050 racer experienced a sudden loss of power and came to a halt. In a statement released today, Toyota Gazoo Racing revealed a “defect on a connector on the air line between the turbocharger and the intercooler” was to blame.While the team is still investigating what caused the failure so the issue doesn’t rear its head again, they do know that the defect resulted in a loss of control over the turbo. Eventually, the team was able to restore power and limp through the rest of the lap, but was unable to do so within the race’s six-minute maximum. This bumped the No. 5 TS 050 down to 45th place.

Good Morning. RelatedOfficial Funeral for Late Former President of the Senate We meet this morning to recognise, celebrate and solidify the special relationship that exists between the Government of Jamaica and the European Union.The EU-Jamaica relationship has remained strong over many years, as the European Union has established itself and its track record as the largest provider of grant resources to Jamaica.The EU’s contributions to the many facets of Jamaica’s development go beyond European Development Fund (EDF) programme activities.I want to make special mention of the Accompanying Measures for Sugar Protocol Countries facility, which has been a major source of support to the Agricultural Sector over many years. The EU’s assistance has been special in enabling the Government to present keys to sugar workers as we remove them from sugar barracks to being owners of a piece of the Jamaican rock.The EU has been a significant partner in our ongoing efforts to transform the sugar industry in Jamaica.At the same time, the Special Framework of Assistance for the Banana Support Programme has been a major source of help to banana farmers and former banana growers, as we diversify our agricultural produce in light of changing international realities.The Government continues to be grateful to the EU for extending a helping hand in the aftermath of natural disasters.In recent times, the Tropical Storm Gustav and Tropical Storm Nicole Rehabilitation assistance programmes have been most helpful to our national recovery efforts.I am particularly thankful for the EU’s partnership under succeeding EDFs, including the 10th Fund, to advance the Poverty Reduction Programme of the Government of Jamaica.Other areas of national and community life in Jamaica which have benefited from EU support and funding have included Education, Human Rights Awareness, Macroeconomic Support including Debt Reduction, Security, Rural Development, Technical Cooperation and other socio-economic initiatives.It is significant that this 11th EDF ceremonial signing, to endorse the Programme signing which took place in Brussels in September, is taking place on the eve of the 2015 observance of 40 years of development partnership between Jamaica and the EU.I am delighted that we are activating Jamaica’s National Indicative Programme for the 11th EDF at a value of 46 Million Euros for the next six years.The national programme has benefited from consultations with a wide cross section of stakeholders which included Government Ministries and Agencies, the private sector, Parliamentarians, non-governmental organisations and international development partners.Among the receiving sectors, Justice has been allocated the largest share of the funding accounting for 50 per cent of the allocation or 23 Million Euros.Importantly, this allocation builds on previous funding of activities to improve justice and governance.In this regard, the EU is providing further support to the Government’s objective of ensuring that “the Jamaican society is secure, cohesive and just.” This is important in advancing gender-responsive, accountable and effective justice services, especially for vulnerable groups.Under this umbrella, the Government’s ongoing programme to improve conditions for the treatment of children in the justice system, will be receiving more financial support.We are committed to:–          Improving conditions in detention–          Reviewing the conditions in lockups because people, no matter, who they are, deserve to be treated with dignity and respect–          Creating better access to justice services at the community level…–          Improving efficiency in the justice process through better technology and infrastructure; and–          Treating children in conflict with the law according to established national standards and in keeping with Jamaica’s international obligations.Children should be bought up and treated with love.Under this 11th EDF, Environment and Climate change initiatives will come in for renewed focus with an allocation of 33 per cent of the available funding or 15.25 Million Euros.Jamaica stands among the countries in the world which have been most forward-thinking and decisive in our environmental planning and management, and in planning for the prevention and mitigation of the negative effects of climate change.Among the results we are expecting from collaboration with the EU in this area, are:–          Greater effectiveness in environmental planning and monitoring–          Better management of natural resources and the environment in general–          Enabling  more vulnerable groups to benefit from sustainable development initiatives; and–          Reduced damage and loss due to climate-related hazards.Public financial management and support to civil society are other areas designated for funding and support under the 11th EDF.I want to use this opportunity to place on record the appreciation of the Government of Jamaica for the EU having increased the initial amounts budgeted for Jamaica under the previous 10th EDF.This was largely as a result of needs arising from hurricanes and income reduction in exports during the global financial crisis.I view this ongoing partnership with the EU as critical support for Jamaica’s growth agenda.We are working to increase the pace of the growth that has started in the economy.We recognise that a greater level of growth in Jamaica is connected to Jamaica’s competiveness in the global economy.We are embarked on the mission of improving productivity and competitiveness with encouraging results so far, as seen in the country’s substantial improvement in global ranking.In remaining disciplined in pursuit of the Economic Reform Programme, we are resolute that growth must be accompanied by jobs and increased opportunities for the creation of new businesses.Growth must be inclusive: we are not leaving behind any sector or group as we advance to a more prosperous future for our country.As we thank the EU for its continued support, we continue to be responsive to unfolding national realities as we implement the Medium Term Socio-economic Policy Framework in a spirit of true and mutually respectful collaboration with our international partners.Again, we thank our EU partners and we commit to playing our part for the timely and efficient implementation of these vital programmes to 2020.I wish to recognize the member states of the European Union and ask their representatives to stand as we hail you in the name of partnership and progress.When I see the smiles on your faces at each event at which you represent your countries, I see commitment, partnership and friendship.When I see the smiles on the faces of the persons whose lives are changed for the better through the various programmes, I see your pride and satisfaction.Together, we know that all the efforts made to improve the lives of our peopleare worth it.Again I thank you and pray God’s blessing on this partnership.-end- Prime Minister’s Remarks at the EU/GOJ Signing CeremonyJIS News | Presented by: PausePlay% buffered00:0000:00UnmuteMuteDisable captionsEnable captionsSettingsCaptionsDisabledQualityundefinedSpeedNormalCaptionsGo back to previous menuQualityGo back to previous menuSpeedGo back to previous menu0.5×0.75×Normal1.25×1.5×1.75×2×Exit fullscreenEnter fullscreenPlay FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Remarks by the Prime Minister, Most Hon.

Smile raises concerns over 9mobile sale

first_img Nigeria suspends SIM card sales, registration Previous Article4YFN reflections with David McClellandNext ArticlePanel: Mobile World Scholar Challenge Nigeria Home Smile raises concerns over 9mobile sale MTN Nigeria payments access restored Related The reserve bidder in the sale of troubled Nigerian operator 9mobile, Smile Telecoms Holdings, voiced concerns about how Barclays Africa is handling the deal and sought a review of the bidding process.In January it was reported the auction had been won by investment company Teleology Holdings, which made an offer of around $500 million. However, Smile highlighted a discrepancy in the timing of the announcement, which came before a 26 February deadline.A two-page letter signed by Templars, the company’s solicitors, stated Barclays Africa must provide a “practicable with verifiable (and preferably third-party authenticated) proof” Teleology had satisfied all required conditions, to ensure transparancy in the sale.Barclays Africa pledged to contact Smile “to discuss any updates on the transaction, to the extent considered necessary.”A source told Nigerian daily Vanguard Barclays made the announcement of the winner in error, because it held a meeting with Teleology and Smile on 26 January and told them they had a month to raise their bids.The source added the winner will need to sign a Sales Purchase Agreement immediately and pay a non-refundable deposit of $50 million.9mobile was put up for sale after it defaulted on repayments on a $1.2 billion loan provided by a consortium of banks.In January, media reports stated Barclays Africa picked the highest bidder after four companies were shortlisted and Smile, with an offer of $300 million, was the reserve bidder.Smile is not the first to be concerned about the process. Airtel Nigeria, the fifth suitor shortlisted, dropped out of the running, because “too many things are hidden about the health of 9mobile”.

Saturday night there was no dramatic fourth quarter comeback.Jeenathan Williams scored six of his game-high 27 points in the third quarter as UPrep took a double-digit lead into the final stanza on their way to a 62-39 victory in the Class AA quarter-finals.Leading by three, the Griffins doubled up R-H over the final seven minutes of the third quarter.“We didn’t want to lose,” James Reaves said of his UPrep Griffins. “We played to win.”Williams finished on the break with a pass from teammate James Barnes. His pull-jumper in transition made it a 38-28 game. Williams scored again on the break and capped UPrep’s quarter at 43-33.Rush-Henrietta did not get any closer.  The Griffins opened the fourth quarter on 13-4 run to put the game out of reach.“They gave us a good hard-fought game,” Reaves said of the Royal Comets. “For us, all year we’ve been a team of ups and downs. We turned the switch on toward the end.”R-H led early in the first 12-11 when Williams scored six straight. The junior guard/forward delivered a thunderous hammer dunk in the open floor. He followed with a blocked shot on the defensive end before going the length of the floor for two more. His pull-up jumper made it 17-12 after the first quarter. They did not trail again.UPrep, which had not played a game since February 7th before dispatching Churchville-Chili, 79-41 in Wednesday’s opening round, pushed their advantage to 13 in the second quarter.Barnes nailed a three from the right corner. Jabez Thomas had a putback slam, and Barnes connected again behind the arc. Williams finished on the break. UPrep led 29-16.“We’ve been beating up on each other, but you can’t really simulate the game,” Reaves said of team’s practices. “We were a little rusty, but a little rested. Now we’re kinda getting into the groove.”Rush-Henrietta’s Kailee White scored on a drive from the wing to cut the lead to five at 29-24 going into the locker room. White hit a free throw line jumper early in the third to make it a three-point game.It was as close as Rush-Henrietta got for the remainder of the game.No.3-seed UPrep (17-4) advanced to play seventh-seeded McQuaid (16-6) in Wednesday’s semi-final round. The Jesuit Knights defeated No. 2-seed Victor, 58-49.“I got a chance to see a little bit of their game today on Facebook live,” Reaves said. “Scrappy team. Of course, they’re big. We’re big too. Matchup-wise it works. It should be a good one. Looking forward to it.”Thomas scored 16 points for UPrep. Barnes added 10.White scored 23 for Rush-Henrietta.UPrep beat Rush-Henrietta, 59-51 in the Rush-Henrietta Christmas Tournament. A game in which UPrep led 46-25 at the start of the fourth quarter.  Jeenathan Williams, Kailee White, Rochester, Royal Comets Add to Google+ Subscribe by Emailcenter_img Williams, UPrep dispatch of Rush-Henrietta Print This Post Follow on Facebook Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
