This is according to Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Audley Shaw, who informed that he is to receive a proposal from Sugar Company of Jamaica (SCJ) Holdings Limited this week for the rationalisation of these lands, which it owns.

Audley Shaw, who informed that he is to receive a proposal from Sugar Company of Jamaica (SCJ) Holdings Limited this week for the rationalisation of these lands, which it owns.Mr. Shaw, who was making his contribution to the 2018/19 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on May 1, informed that this is part of the 18,000 hectares of land leased by Pan Caribbean Sugar Company, which has been returned to the Government.The lands were once home to the Bernard Lodge Estate, which focused on sugar-cane cultivation, operation of a rum distillery, and eventually ethanol production.The Agriculture Ministry negotiated the return of the lands last year as part of plans to promote greater utilisation of idle arable lands for agricultural production.“We cannot continue to watch good lands lay idle anymore… . These 18,000 hectares of highly fertile, alluvial, flat and mechanisable lands represent the largest contiguous area of lands in Jamaica, suitable and ideal for this agricultural revolution,” he said.Mr. Shaw informed that he has met with SCJ Holdings, Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO), the National Irrigation Commission and Agro-Investment Corporation, and has issued instructions for the Bernard Lodge Land Use Master Plan to be developed quickly. The plan will outline how the lands are to be utilised.Of the remaining 7,500 hectares of land to be left available for sugar production, 2,000 hectares of that will be developed as an urban community.last_img read more

The Torg silenced after wishing death to Desmond Howard

The Ohio State-Michigan football rivalry is a passionate subject for many, and Columbus radio host Scott Torgerson let that passion get the better of him. Torgerson, a co-host of “The Common Man and The Torg” show on WBNS 97.1 The Fan in Columbus, was suspended by the radio station after wishing death on former Michigan football star and current ESPN analyst Desmond Howard. The suspension is indefinite, according to multiple reports. Howard currently works as a co-host for ESPN’s traveling, live college football show, “College GameDay.” 97.1 The Fan also happens to be an ESPN affiliate. From his Twitter account, @myguythetorg, Torgerson tweeted Saturday: “I wish Desmond Howard would get fired or die so I can watch Gameday again.” Torgerson later issued an apology on Twitter, saying: “My Desmond Howard tweet was a joke. I think if you listen to the show you know that. My apologizes to those who took it serious. Total joke.” The apology arrived too late for Kirk Herbstreit and Howard’s wife. Herbstreit, an ESPN analyst, co-host of “College GameDay” with Howard, and former OSU quarterback, criticized Torgerson during “The Kirk Herbstreit Show,” which airs on 97.1 The Fan. “I think what Desmond Howard had to deal with over the weekend is disgusting and very sad,” Herbstreit said. “I don’t know the reason behind it, but the tweet from an individual that works at the radio station was above and beyond, I think, what was acceptable … There’s so much more I wish I could say about that and I’ll choose not to … To me he crossed a line and that’s just completely unacceptable.” Howard’s wife, Rebkah Howard, responded to Torgerson on Twitter as well. From Rebkah Howard’s Twitter account, @pink_funk, she said: “(thanks) for the ‘apologizes’. Are you fortunate enough to be a father? Know who didn’t get your ‘total (dead) joke’? Our daughter.” Torgerson did not immediately respond to The Lantern’s Tuesday request for comment. read more

Hughton issues complacency warning

first_imgBrighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton believes that their biggest challenge in 2019 will be trying to avoid complacency.Brighton are sitting comfortably in 13th place in the Premier League table after amassing 25 points from 20 matches so far.But Chris Hughton has stressed the need to maintain their level of play as the second half of the season starts.“The biggest challenge is always complacency – in every game, we played in this division we are faced with tough opposition and that’s a reminder each week that if we don’t reach a level we can get punished,” Hughton told the club’s official website.“That’s always there for us, we’re still in our second season in this division and our aim is to maintain our status in the league and develop and grow as a club.Pep Guardiola: “Aymeric Laporte’s injury doesn’t look good” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admits Aymeric Laporte’s injury “does not look good” and fears the defender will be out for a long time.“We’ve worked very hard to be where we are now, and we have to be respectful that every single game we play is a difficult one – there’ll be bigger and more experienced teams than us that will find it difficult – there are reminders every week in this league about that.”“My feeling is that we have to continue in the same mentality, the gap between ourselves and the bottom three will always be the most important thing for quite some time to develop as a team.”last_img read more

SourceMedia Launches AccountBased Marketing Service

first_img Like many publishers in the B2B sector, SourceMedia continues to center its growth strategy around digital media and data-focused marketing solutions. The company underwent a corporate rebranding to that effect earlier this month, introducing a new website and logo. “SourceMedia ABM makes SourceMedia’s audience data actionable,” said Witte in a prepared statement. “Our deep relationships with our audience members give us an ideal platform for understanding the interests and purchasing patterns of the bankers, advisers, and accountants in our professional communities.” In an extensive interview with Connectiv’s Matt Kinsman, Marcus Whitte, SourceMedia’s VP of integrated marketing and demand generation, says, “Account based-marketing, at its very basic level, is taking a group of names that make up an account … and doing very targeted messaging to them. If you were just looking at this basic level, a lot of companies are grabbing names and doing targeted marketing to those lists. We take it one step further because in our umbrella of brands, we’ve got some really robust first party data that we can pull from.” Combining insights from machine learning techniques with SourceMedia’s proprietary audience data, SourceMedia ABM will aim to provide clients with sales-ready leads by delivering customized messaging to individual influencers within specific audience segments. The B2B publisher and events firm, whose brands in the finanical, technology, and healthcare sectors include American Banker, PaymentSource, The Bond Buyer, and Health Data Management, among many others, has announced the launch of SourceMedia ABM, a new capability that will allow clients to target individual senior-level professionals at pivotal moments in the customer journey. The benefits to this are two-fold, Whitte tells Kinsman. For one, SourceMedia’s customer data platform can now unify records for the same individual across multiple database platforms, providing a much more comprehensive view of an individual’s interests and consumption habits. Those insights can then be applied to other individuals with similar behaviors to reach them in the most efficient and effective ways possible.center_img SourceMedia is expanding its client offerings to provide the latest service sweeping the B2B media and information industry: account-based marketing. So, what actually is account-based marketing? ABM campaigns, depending on the client’s objectives, can include custom content, distribution across multiple platforms and types of content (including social media), and near-real-time reporting and engagement scoring. In February, SourceMedia relaunched its company-wide digital publishing platform to open up mobile optimization and native advertising integration, and hired AnnMarie Wills to the newly created role of VP of audience and data, reporting directly to chief digital and marketing officer Minna Rhee.last_img read more

More Charges New Defendant In Texas Human Smuggling Case

first_imgThe driver of a semitrailer found outside a San Antonio Walmart in July packed with immigrants, including 10 who died, faces additional charges in the smuggling case and another defendant has now been charged, federal officials said Wednesday.The U.S. attorney’s office in San Antonio said a grand jury returned the seven-count superseding indictment Wednesday afternoon. U.S. Attorney Richard Durbin Jr. said in a filing that he won’t seek the death penalty against the driver, James Bradley Jr., 60.Prosecutors said the indictment also alleges Pedro Silva Segura, 47, of Laredo, who is in the U.S. illegally, transported immigrants and tried to shield them from detection. He could face up to life in prison or death penalty.The indictment charges Bradley and Silva each with one count of conspiracy to transport and harbor immigrants who are illegally in the U.S. for financial gain resulting in death; one count of conspiracy to transport and harbor immigrants who are illegally in the U.S. for financial gain resulting in serious bodily injury and placing lives in jeopardy; and two counts of transporting immigrants who are illegally in the U.S. resulting in serious bodily injury and placing lives in jeopardy.The superseding indictment also charges Bradley alone with the three additional counts: transportation of immigrants who are illegally in the U.S. resulting in death; transporting immigrants who are illegally in the U.S. resulting in serious bodily injury and placing lives in jeopardy; and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.Bradley could get up to life in prison. Silva faces up to life in prison or the death penalty.According to court documents, police officers responding to the Walmart on July 23 found people standing and lying in the rear of the trailer and Bradley in the cab.At least 39 people had been packed inside the semitrailer, most of them Mexicans who had crossed the United States’ southern border. The trailer’s cooling system was broken, and witnesses told authorities and The Associated Press that they fought to breathe and tried in vain to get the trailer to stop as it headed north.Eight people were found dead inside, and another two died after being hospitalized.Court records said the immigrants estimated the trailer contained between 70 and 180 to 200 people during transport. They also described differing fees for being transported. Authorities also recovered a .38 caliber pistol from inside the cab.Bradley, who was arrested at the scene, has remained in federal custody. Kimberly Stevens, one of his attorneys, had no comment Wednesday on the superseding indictment.According to a criminal complaint released in July, Bradley denied knowing anyone was inside the trailer. He told investigators that the trailer had been sold and he was transporting it for his boss from Iowa to Brownsville, Texas. But he said he had driven to Laredo, Texas, and stopped twice there before driving back to San Antonio, in the opposite direction from Brownsville.Silva is in custody and awaiting transfer to San Antonio for his initial appearance in federal court, which has not yet been scheduled. It was unclear if he had an attorney.Authorities have said they are investigating the case as part of a broader operation to organize and fund the movement of people illegally across the United States’ southern border.

Deadly Fire At Crosby Chemical Plant Raises Legal And Safety Questions

first_imgHarris County Sheriff Ed GonzalezA smoke plume is seen in Crosby where a fire broke out at a chemical facility on April 2, 2019. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen Tuesday’s explosion at a KMCO chemical plant in Crosby, Texas killed one and injured two. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a petition against KMCO alleging violations of the Clean Air Act, but KMCO’s legal issues won’t end there.Separate from Tuesday’s explosion and fire, KMCO is currently in violation of the Clean Water Act, and has had a host of other recent offenses, including violations of the Clean Air Act and a hazardous waste statute, the Houston Chronicle reported.Tracey Hester of the University of Houston Law Center told Houston Matters that a facility’s record plays into the potential liability it may face in the wake of a disaster.“Just speaking generally, absolutely — a facility that has a record of prior violations, particularly the same kind of violations, escalates its legal exposure,” Hester said. “At the very least, most statutes provide that repeat violations have bigger potential penalties associated with them.”Facilities with a history of violations have a harder time renewing the permits they need to operate and must face more inspections from regulators, according to Hester. That history could also play into potential criminal charges against decision-makers at KMCO.“At the end of the day, it is very clearly — on both the federal and state levels — a major factor in deciding whether to bring a criminal action,” Hester said.Safety concernsTuesday’s explosion also raised questions regarding safety protocols. “Major chemical incidents like this can be prevented by applying process safety management principles,” said Rachel Meidl, a fellow in Energy and Environment at Rice’s Baker Institute.She said the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is the main entity tasked with protecting workers.OSHA outlines 14 principles in total. Some of those principles include documented operating procedures, adequate training for both employees and contractors, and process hazard analysis — when engineers predict what might happen during a failure.KMCO worker Randy Villalobos told ABC13 that he didn’t hear any announcements or alarms. Instead, an operator told him to get out. And when he finally got to the fence, he had to crawl underneath. The gate was locked.According to Meidl, that shouldn’t happen.“There are elements of the process safety management system that would catch that, so clearly there was a breakdown,” Meidl said.The US Chemical Safety Board is investigating the incident. After an investigation, they issue recommendations for the industry as a whole to help prevent similar disasters. center_img Share X 00:00 /07:00last_img read more
