HUSH Symposium to Focus on Children with Disabilities

The Institute of Jamaica (IOJ) will host its fourth HUSH Children’s Symposium on Wednesday, May 14 at the Rex Nettleford Hall Auditorium at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus.The symposium themed: ‘Disability, Equality and Accessibility’ will focus on: learning disabilities, mental health, visual impairment and deaf culture.The forum, which is an annual event, is part of the IOJ’s drive to change public perception toward persons living with disabilities, especially children.It also seeks to break the silence of children in addressing the various issues that affect them. This year’s staging is being held in association with the Nathan Ebanks Foundation, a non-profit organisation that offers support to the disabled community.Public Relations Officer at IOJ, Michka McCreath told JIS News that the inspiration for this year’s focus on children with disabilities came from the IOJ’s realisation that there is a need to focus on an area that will have significant national impact.Discussions between the IOJ’s Programmes Coordination Division and founder of the Nathan Ebanks Foundation, Christine Staple Ebanks, also influenced the area of focus.“A symposium on disabilities will definitely reach an audience that we have never captured before in this type of manner. We want people to understand that they (children with disabilities) are normal, they like to enjoy life, they are fun loving just like we are and we do not want them to feel different.  We want them to feel included in all of our activities and we want to make all the society a bit more inclusive…to them and their special needs,” said Miss McCreath.The symposium, she explained, will help to develop the potential of children, which is one of the core mandates of the Institute.“This is definitely the way forward in our vision because…we have a mandate to provide resources and information for children and children with disabilities are also under that umbrella and this is a way we have decided to get the information about their disabilities to a wider audience,” Miss McCreath expressed.Stakeholders in the education sector, including teachers and students are the main targets of the event because of their prolonged periods of interaction with children.Miss McCreath further noted that some teachers are unaware of the best methods of addressing the needs of students with disabilities, including how to tailor teaching material for this special group.“We are targeting students as well as those who are peers of children with disabilities so that they will understand how it is that they are to communicate with them so that they feel better appreciated,” informed the public relations officer.This year’s staging of the symposium will include participation from Minister of Youth and Culture, Hon. Lisa Hanna, along with several government and corporate entities including: the Ministry of Education, the Jamaica Council for Persons with Disabilities, the Child Development Agency, the Jamaica Association for Children with Learning Disabilities, the Mico University College’s Child Assessment and Research in Education (CARE) Centre, and the Jamaica Association for the Deaf.

Four share Hyundai halfway lead

first_imgKAPALUA, Hawaii – Zach Johnson putted for birdie on every hole and made seven of them Saturday for a 6-under 67 that put him in a four-way tie for the lead after two rounds of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Johnson was halfway home to becoming the first repeat winner at Kapalua who wasn’t from Australia – Stuart Appleby and Geoff Ogilvy were the others. But not only is the first PGA Tour event of the year only through 36 holes, it’s extraordinarily crowded. Jimmy Walker dropped a stroke late and shot 68. Russell Henley got off to a sluggish start before a solid back nine for a 70. Sang-Moon Bae closed with eight straight pars for a 69. They joined Johnson at 11-under 135. Hyundai Tournament of Champions: Articles, videos and photos Scott Stalling was in that group until twice hitting into the bushes and tall grass – on his tee shot at the 17th and his second shot at the par-5 18th. Both cost him bogeys in a 70 that sent him spiraling down the leaderboard, just not very far. He was among 10 players separated by just two shots going into the third round. Five players, including Patrick Reed and Hideki Matsuyama, were in the group one shot behind. So much for this week being a working vacation along the western shores of Maui. These guys came to play. “I think it’s so competitive,” Henley said. “I think the way guys look at it now, it’s a great opportunity to have a good finish and get off to a great start, if not win.” Johnson got off to a great start last year when he won. That turned out to be his only victory of 2014, and he’s right back in the hunt again. His only bogey on another benign day above the blue Pacific was a three-putt on the eighth hole. He made birdie on all the par 5s, though the last one required a little more work. Johnson popped up his drive, which still went 294 yards because of the 150-foot drop from the tee to the fairway. He had to pound a 3-wood to get beyond the neck of the fairway, and then he flew his third shot beyond the flag. Shots like that used to roll off the back of the green. In soft conditions, this one stayed, and Johnson made a 15-foot putt to be the first to reach 11 under. Walker didn’t get away from his mistake late in the round. Adjusting for the severe drop in elevation over a gorge in front of the 17th green, he figured it was an 8-iron. The uncertainty was the wind, and not totally convinced of his club selection, he hit chunky and barely got onto the green. He three-putted from 70 feet, and then failed to birdie the 18th. Bae was the first player to get to 10 under, though his round slowed with one birdie on the back nine. Matsuyama and Charley Hoffman each shot 66 for the low rounds Saturday. Hoffman ran off seven birdies in an eight-hole stretch to share the lead, only to hit into the hazard on the 17th for a double bogey. He bounced backed with his seventh birdie of the back nine. Hoffman was the last player to qualify for this winners-only event with a victory in Mexico in November. The weather has been ideal for two days, with abundant sunshine and limited wind. The conditions are softer than usual because of spells of heavy rain in recent weeks. That might be contributing to a leaderboard that is bunched up heading into the final two rounds. Half of the 34-man field was within five shots of the lead.last_img read more

Donegal hospitality sector says it’s ‘make or break’ time

first_img WhatsApp By News Highland – October 9, 2020 Previous articleBreaking: Government looking at extended mid-term breakNext articleDeputy First Minister self-isolating News Highland Facebook Google+ News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Pinterest Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA Google+ Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Homepage BannerNewscenter_img Pinterest Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter WhatsApp Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme Donegal hospitality sector says it’s ‘make or break’ time A letter, representing 60 hospitality businesses in Donegal, has been sent to every TD in the county detailing that it is now ‘make or break’ time for the sector. Ahead of Budget 2021, the document outlines that 5,500 local jobs are at risk and urgent Government supports are needed.Prior to Covid-19, tourism businesses across Donegal supported 7,500 jobs and generated €249 million in revenues annually for the local economy.This year with local tourism struggling under immense financial difficulties, it’s estimated that almost 75% of those jobs are at risk:Failure to act now would do irreparable damage to the long-term viability of our industry and our ability to act as an engine for growth throughout the entire country. A severely devastated tourism sector would be a major loss both nationally and locally to our economy and wider society for many years to come. This can and must be avoided.Urgent and unprecedented intervention from the Government is now required to support tourism businesses and safeguard thousands of jobs throughout the sector. This must form a central plank of the upcoming Budget.Four Urgent Government Supports Required in this Year’s Budget:1. Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme (EWSS) – if jobs are to be retained, the EWSS rates of support must be increased to the previous TWSS levels of €350/€410 per week for businesses that can demonstrate a 50% reduction in turnover for a 12-month period to 31 March 2021. The period for calculating the existing 30% reduction should also be extended on a similar basis. This would make it possible for employers to retain staff during the difficult winter/spring months ahead and to facilitate training and upskilling structures designed to allow employees get personal benefit from this challenging period and to help the industry prepare for post Covid-19 recovery opportunities. Payments should be made on a weekly basis to assist with cashflow. The scheme should be continued until the impact of Covid-19 restrictions has fully abated.2. Reduction in Tourism VAT to 9% – permanent restoration to 9% to assist recovery and secure a viable and sustainable future for tourism. Reducing VAT will not only provide a stimulus in the Irish economy but also improve our competitiveness as an international tourism destination. VAT on Irish Hotels is currently the second highest in Europe and higher than 30 European Countries.3. Liquidity Measures – Additional liquidity measures are required to help fund hotels during the coming months as a result of the cash flow lost out due to Covid-19 restrictions, including an extension of the moratorium on bank term loans from 6 months to 12 months.4. Local Authority Rates Waiver – The waiver period should be extended for tourism businesses to coincide with business interruption due to Covid-19 and for a minimum of 12 months. After that, payment of local authority rates should be based on reduced levels of activity due to the crisis and until the industry has recovered.

One-Way Ticket

first_imgEach summer, many fish species visit the waters along the South Shore and Long Island Sound. Many of these fish are either here temporarily (migratory) or inhabit these waters year-round. They are here to feed on the abundance of food that thrives in our nutrient-rich marine environment. These fish will linger as they see necessary, feeding and accumulating the energy needed in preparation to migrate back to their wintering grounds, or venture offshore to hunker down for the winter.Another unique group of fish is here as well during the summer, and the fish are seldom seen because they hide and are not here on their own willpower. They are tropical fish, but unlike the other fish groups, they will not be able to venture back in the winter to their tropical marine habitats.These tropical fish arrive via the Gulf Stream. The Gulf Stream is a powerful, warm, and swift Atlantic Ocean current originating in the Gulf of Mexico, exiting through the Strait of Florida and flowing in a northerly direction along the southeastern coast of the United States and eventually passing Long Island 150 to 200 miles to our south.This flow of water is part of the greater North Atlantic Gyre, which is one of the five major oceanic gyres found throughout the world. This gyre includes systems of circular ocean currents that stretch across the North Atlantic from near the equator, almost to Iceland, and from the east coast of North America to the west coasts of Europe and Africa. As the Gulf Stream current flows, it influences the climate on Long Island and also brings us an array of tropical visitors.Every year in the Gulf of Mexico many types of tropical fish spawn, releasing free-floating eggs and developing larvae into the water column. As the Gulf Stream whips past these spawning grounds, it draws in anything in its path, especially young, developing fish that eventually find themselves drifting north and away from their home range. As these fish drift unwillingly along the east coast, they are pushed-out of the Gulf Stream current by large swirls of water known as eddies. These fish are then in a “race for time” to find a sanctuary and protection from predatory fish or birds. They dash and swim into our bays, harbors, and inshore waters, where they will stay and develop throughout the summer months.As we enter the summer season here on the South Fork, there is no better opportunity to grab your snorkel gear and flippers and head down to the bay and to try to view these wonderful creatures, such as the lookdown, trigger, banded rudder, Jack Crevalle, spot-fin butterfly, glass-eye snapper, or even a bigeye. I have seen all these fish mentioned many times here on the East End in eelgrass habitats and around bridge and dock pilings.When the local waters become cooler, these fish are triggered through their sensory systems to head back to a warmer environment and away from our inshore waters in search of the warm current that brought them here. As these fish swim offshore in search of this climate, they are preyed upon by migratory fish such as striped bass and blue fish. Those that make it back into the Gulf Stream will be heading in a northerly direction bringing them toward the frigid waters off Nova Scotia and Europe, where they will either perish due to the cold or be eaten by other predatory marine creatures.Before these fish depart on this one-way journey, jump in the water this summer and search for these colorful and temporary visitors here on the East End. “Staycations” are all the rage these days, so living in a beach town is a definite bonus, especially when the beauty of the Caribbean is practically in our own backyard.Frank Quevedo is the executive director of the South Fork Natural History Museum.
