Local hopes will be high after the Northern Eagles fifth placing in the Under 18’s Girls last year, and the experience of their coach – Australian Women’s 20’s player, Stephanie Halpin, will be of great benefit to the team.

Minister of State in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, Hon. Floyd Green, says the Ministry plans to install closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras in all the youth innovation centres that are being established across the island.He said the objective is for these facilities to serve as safe spaces for young people to meet, study, develop business ideas, and access personal development and empowerment services.He noted that cameras have already been installed at centres in St. James, Hanover and Westmoreland.“The plan is to ensure that all our centres have that level of security,” Mr. Green added.He was addressing a national youth symposium under the theme: ‘Safe Spaces for Youth’ at The Knutsford Court Hotel in New Kingston on Monday (August 13).The State Minister, earlier this year, announced a partnership with the Organization of American States (OAS), to rebrand the 11 Youth Information Centres (YICs) across the island to focus on fostering entrepreneurship among young people.He informed that the Westmoreland YIC, which is the first to be converted into an innovation centre, will serve as a model for the other facilities across the island.“(Westmoreland is) our first innovation centre so they have a full-fledged entrepreneurship programme that is being run in the centre to unleash the next generation of entrepreneurs,” he said.“Our plan is, throughout all our centres, one thing that will be standard, is that young people, who have ideas in their community, and they are looking somewhere to go for guidance, somewhere to go to transform an idea into a business plan, they can go to these safe [and] sustainable spaces,” he outlined.Mr. Green said he hopes to see many of the ideas generated being manifested into sustainable business initiatives, which young people own and operate.YICs provide free access to the Internet and serve as a focal point for the dissemination of information on youth issues and programmes including educational training opportunities.The conversion of these facilities into innovation centres will involve putting in additional personnel, such as persons with business training and human resource skills, and relevant equipment.They are located at Lot 190 Llandilo Road, Westmoreland; Edgewater Rounda-bout, St. Catherine; Emmanuel Baptist Church, 5 Hodgson Street, St. Mary; 1 Humber Avenue, St. James; Marcus Garvey Skills Training Centre, Owen Sound Drive, St. Ann; Wint Road in Brooks Park, Manchester; Watson Taylor Park, Hanover; 7-9 Trenton Road, Clarendon; 2A West Palm Avenue, Portland; Santa Cruz Community Centre, St. Elizabeth; and Old Police Station, Corners of French and Wellington Streets, St. Catherine.

WINNIPEG – The culprit wasn’t a cheese lover, but a reward for his capture may go to someone who is.A cheese store in Winnipeg is offering free fromage for a year to the person who can identify a man who busted through the back door of the business early Tuesday.Jean-Marc Champagne, co-owner of Fromagerie Bothwell, announced the tasty bounty on social media.He says the shop has only been open for three months and, without much cash to offer as a reward, thought cheese might be a good motivator.He also posted surveillance footage of the intruder, dressed in white and wearing glasses, as he scurried around the store just after midnight.Champagne says the man checked out an empty cash register and coolers filled with dairy products, then left without taking a thing.“I guess we didn’t have any of the cheese varieties that he liked,” says Champagne.The reward has created a lot of interest, he says in between phone calls and media interviews. While Champagne is glad no one was in the store at the time, he wants the criminal caught.Although he isn’t yet sure how he will dole out a year’s worth of cheese, he promises the winner won’t run out of fresh cheese curds, maple smoked cheddar or jalapeno Monterey jack.“Hopefully we can catch this guy,” Champagne says.Reaction on social media to the reward varied from supportive to, well, cheesy.“He’s clearly not a very Gouda human,” said one reply on Instagram. “It’s Nacho cheese, dude! It’s @fromageriebothwell’s. I’m sure you’re feeling blue about the break-in and I hope you start feeling feta soon. Brie Strong.”Const. Rob Carver said police are investigating the break-in and the unusual reward could be helpful.“I think sometimes people need a little nudge to come forward.”Carver, a fan of Gorgonzola, said he also wishes he could crack the case.“I’m not eligible for the free cheese, but it would be great.”— By Chris Purdy in Edmonton
(Image of Franklin Expedition ship discovered by Parks Canada. Photo/Handout)APTN National News OTTAWA–Researchers have found one of two ships lost in the 19th Century during the doomed Franklin Expedition, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Tuesday.Harper said the ship’s existence was confirmed Sunday by a Parks Canada using a remote underwater vehicle in the Victoria Strait near King William Island, Nunavut.“For more than a century this has been a great Canadian story, a mystery,” said Harper. “It has been the subject of scientists and historians, writers and singers.”It’s unclear whether the discovered ship is the HMS Erebus or the HMS Terror which became trapped in ice in 1846 searching for the Northwest Passage through the Arctic.The ships were last spotted by Inuit hunters before eventually vanishing.Harper has made the search for the Franklin Expedition ship a personal quest.Parks Canada has lead six searches for the ships since 2008.Most of what is currently known about the ill-fated expedition comes from a note left in a cairn on King William Island. The message stated that the ships became trapped in ice for over a year. Sir John Franklin, who led the expedition, died on June 11, 1847. About 23 crew members also died in a similar way. The remaining crew tried to find a way to safety on foot, but eventually succumbed and were consumed by the firstname.lastname@example.org

Surat: Over a fortnight after they went missing, bodies of five members of a family in Gujarat’s Surat were Sunday fished out from a local canal, police said. The bodies of Jeevan Gamit (65), his wife Sharmila (62), son Dharmesh (41), daughter-in-law Sunita (36) and granddaughter Urvi (6) were brought out from a canal near Madhi village in the district, said Bardoli police station Inspector B K Patel said. “The five are residents of Kapura village in Vyara tehsil in neighbouring Tapi district. Their family members had filed a missing person complaint at the local police station there on February 28,” Patel said. “Their car apparently fell into the canal near Madhi village. The Maruti Eeco car they were travelling in was spotted in the canal by residents on Sunday who then informed us. We brought out the car and the bodies of the five were found inside in a highly decomposed state,” he informed. Relatives of the deceased have told police they had gone to Bardoli to offer prayers at a temple and were on their way back when they met with an accident, Patel said. “It seems the driver lost control of the car and it plunged into the canal. Further probe into the incident is underway,” he added.
Tripoli: Forces backing Libya’s unity government battled to push back an offensive by strongman Khalifa Haftar on Sunday as his troops approached the gates of Tripoli after air raids overnight. Haftar’s self-proclaimed Libyan National Army, galvanised by victories in its eastern stronghold and in the country’s desert south, announced an offensive early this month to seize the capital from the UN-recognised administration of Fayez al-Sarraj. But his forces have faced fierce resistance from armed groups backing the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), including powerful factions from the western city of Misrata. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThe bloodshed has derailed efforts to bring peace to a country where jihadists and people smugglers have exploited the chaos unleashed by the NATO-backed overthrow of dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011. At least 227 people have been killed since Haftar’s forces launched their offensive, the World Health Organisation said Sunday, adding that a further 1,128 have been wounded. Clashes intensified on Saturday when forces loyal to the GNA announced a counter-attack. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls”We have launched a new phase of attack. Orders were given early this morning to advance and gain ground,” said Mustafa al-Mejii, a spokesman for GNA forces. Sustained rocket and shellfire could be heard in several districts of Tripoli on Saturday, after several days of less intense fighting and stalemate on the ground. Explosions were heard from the city centre overnight, and some witnesses reported air strikes. Pope Francis, delivering his traditional Easter message, called for an end to “conflict and bloodshed” that was killing “defenceless people” in Libya. “I urge the parties involved to choose dialogue over force and to avoid reopening wounds left by a decade of conflicts and political instability,” he said. Tripoli air traffic was suspended overnight to Sunday for “security reasons”, the city’s only operating airport said Sunday. At least two flights were re-routed from Mitiga airport to Misrata, more than 200 kilometres (125 miles) to the east, the airport’s authorities said on their Facebook page. They said flights had resumed early in the morning to Mitiga, east of the capital. The former military airbase was hit by an air strike on April 8, claimed by the LNA, and has since only operated between 5:00 pm and 8:00 am (1500 and 0600 GMT). The GNA counter-attack put pro-government forces back in control of Ain Zara, in the southern suburbs of Tripoli, where an AFP team confirmed pro-GNA forces had advanced, shifting the front line a few kilometres south. GNA spokesman Mejii told AFP on Sunday morning that “after a long day of military success, our forces are consolidating their (new) positions.” Some witnesses spoke of air raids and drones, but Mejii said the blasts were caused by strikes from LNA helicopters aimed at “terrorising civilians”. He said they had not caused any casualties but had taken place away from the front lines, without offering any further details. Military sources say the ageing Soviet and Russian fighter jets used by both sides are not equipped to carry out night time strikes, but Mejii said Haftar’s forces have a helicopter with night vision capabilities. The UN’s Libya envoy warned Thursday of “a widening conflagration” in the North African country. Ghassan Salame told AFP that “international divisions” prior to the assault on Tripoli had emboldened Haftar, who is backed by Russia and seen by his allies Egypt and the United Arab Emirates as a bulwark against Islamists. The White House revealed Friday that US President Donald Trump reached out personally to Haftar, as a push at the United Nations to broker a ceasefire hit trouble. A statement said that Trump “recognised Field Marshal Haftar’s significant role in fighting terrorism and securing Libya’s oil resources,” adding that “the two discussed a shared vision for Libya’s transition to a stable, democratic political system.” Observers saw Trump’s words of praise for the strongman as evidence of US support that explains Haftar’s determination to pursue his offensive to seize Tripoli. On Thursday, Russia and the United States opposed a British bid backed by France and Germany at the UN Security Council to demand a ceasefire in Libya. Russia insisted on having no criticism of Haftar in the proposed resolution, while the United States said it wanted more time to consider the situation.

I am a farmer’s son and I was here to raise the voices of farmers and jawans,” he told reporters. His counsel Rajesh Gupta said, “We will approach the Supreme Court”.
