I have been in touch with the Commissioner of Police over the week-end and also with the Hon. Premier. Clearly what is immediately important is the care of the victim and the investigation of the crime. The Police are fully engaged on this.But of course what most concerns the public is not just this particular incident, but a sense of an upward trend in instances of violent crime. As well as the immediate response and investigation – led by the Police – all of us in government have a responsibility to address the causes of crime and to respond properly and intelligently and with the right resources.With others in government I am very engaged on this larger issue, both in terms of analysis and of resourcing. And this involves many government bodies, i.e. not only the Police but others as well as Border Control, Immigration and also Customs.I will be speaking to certain groups next week as part of an ongoing effort to reach out and provide responsive reassurance. There is however no magic wand in all this. It requires due consideration, proper application and steady determination, as the Police Force is showing already and with some real success. All of us however have a part to play in this process, including all relevant agencies of government.”Press Release: TCIG#MagneticMediaNews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for youlast_img read more

CSME the best response to changes in Europe – CARICOM Outgoing Chair

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppCARICOM, Greater Georgetown, Guyana Secretariat, Turkey – The CSME is the Community’s best response to the inevitable changes in its traditional markets in Europe, the prevalence of economic liberalization and the emergence of economic blocs, Outgoing Chairman of the Caribbean Community said Tuesday evening.Speaking to the opening of the 38th Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government at the Grenada Trade Centre in Grand Anse, the President of Guyana said the CSME is still the best vehicle to allow small states like those of CARICOM to compete in the global economy while promoting economic and social development.CARICOM Heads of Governments, who began the first business session of their two-day meeting on Wednesday, are expected to examine the findings of a comprehensive review of the CSME.Describing the deepening of economic integration by advancing a single market and economy, as the “most ambitious project attempted by the Community,” President Granger said, “It must not become its most ambiguous.”“The CSME, especially given the present uncertainties facing the Region’s international relations, must be accelerated in order to create a single economic space.”With an encouraging tone, he said: “The Community, with a total land area of 462, 352 km2, is larger than Sweden and, if it were a single country, would be the 56th largest in the world. Size matters. The Community be the 56th largest in the world. Size matters.”Given the accumulative land, the labour, the talent and the capital the Community possess, it could guarantee food security for its citizens, the Guyanese Head of State posited.Within this context, he bemoaned the Community’s annual food import bill, which he said exceeded US$4B.Noting that such a situation was “a notorious indictment,” the outgoing Chairman said non-tariff barriers continued to constrain trade in food. The need was urgent, therefore to re-examine how it can dismantle the non-tariff barriers to trade in agricultural products while generating employment for citizens,” he said.Emphasising the critical importance of removing barriers to foster more efficient intra-regional trade, he said: “Small internal markets consign states to high dependence on external trade. Intraregional trade, therefore, is important. The Caribbean Common Market was established to ensure markets for regional production, inter alia. Intraregional trade provides a basis for increasing national production, augmenting investment and generating employment. The environment is an inescapable economic reality.”As he reflected on his “semester” as Chairman of the Community, President Granger said current international realities provided ample opportunities for the Community to work together to protect vital interests at the levels of citizen, country and the community.Expressing confidence in the future he said, “With such a clear vision and commitment, CARICOM can confront the future with confidence.”The President of Guyana reminded his colleagues to keep citizens at the centre of the Community and to reject “the odious notion of ‘statelessness’.”Providing a nexus between the rights of the citizen and the freedom of movement regime of the CSME, he said that the respect of the right of citizens obliged leaders to “dismantle restrictive immigration practices, which impede free movement.”Referencing the original Treaty of Chaguaramas, he said the founding fathers envisioned the strengthening of   “bonds among the people of the Caribbean to fulfil aspirations for “…full employment and improved standards of work and living…”He also recalled that the Charter of Civil Society of the Caribbean Community established the respect for every citizen’s fundamental human rights, including the right to life, liberty and security of the person.Therefore, he stated: “The perverse notion of a ‘stateless’ person is anathema to the Community’s concept of human dignity. The Community must never cease condemning inhuman treatment meted out to Caribbean citizens in the Dominican Republic or anywhere else.”The Guyanese Head of State said: “The Caribbean, our home, must be secure. It must remain a ‘zone of peace’ through our unstinting solidarity in defence of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of member states.”At the same time he said that security cooperation, under the CARICOM Implementation Agency for Crime and Security (IMPACs) and through international agreements such as the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI), which have helped to keep citizens safe, were not sufficient in an age of international terror.Underscoring the importance of advancing the Roadmap for a Single ICT Space, he said could help the region to “straddle the 3,200 km2 of sea space, which separates Nassau in the north from Paramaribo in the south, through information and communications technology.”[http://pr1122017%20%20address%20by%20his%20excellency%20brigadier%20david%20granger%2C%20%2838th%20hogc%2C%20grenada%202017%29.doc/]full text of the speech delivered by Outgoing Chairman of the Caribbean Community, H.E.

The collective defensive movement was very good today.”As Juventus were surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw by Genoa today, it means Napoli close the gap at the top of the table to four points.“We have players who can do damage between the lines and versatile forwards who can change position, so this allows us to put in vertical passes and attack quickly.”last_img read more

Daughter kills herself in Mission Valley office after learning of mothers murder

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Authorities released the names Monday of a mother and daughter from Chula Vista who died in shootings in Mission Valley over the weekend — one killed by an unknown assailant, and the other by her own hand after learning of the older woman’s slaying. A third family member found the body of Maria Kelly, 66, in a small utility room at the victim’s second-floor workplace at an office building in the 3400 block of Camino del Rio South shortly before 1:30 p.m. Saturday, according to San Diego police.Upon getting word of her mother’s death, 34-year-old Crystal Vasquez went to the site of the slaying, Lt. Mike Holden said. A short time later, she left and went to a nearby business, where she fatally shot herself in a restroom. Detectives have identified no suspects or motive in the homicide and are trying to determine exactly why Vasquez committed suicide. “Could it have been out of grief? Yes,” Holden said. Kelly, a professional tax preparer, had been reported missing hours before her body was discovered. Her family hadn’t seen her since Thursday, according to police.Vasquez had worked at her mother’s business at times, the lieutenant said. Investigators were poring through numerous surveillance-camera images captured at the office building, according to Holden. A GoFundMe page was set up by family members to assist with funeral costs for Kelly and Vasquez.  July 22, 2017 , Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwittercenter_img Daughter kills herself in Mission Valley office after learning of mother’s murder Posted: July 22, 2017last_img read more

It’s an active shooter training exercise held on the one-year anniversary of the Las Vegas Massacre.Deputy Kristy Drilling is standing by.The 10-year veteran was off duty in Las Vegas with her husband enjoying a country music festival when a shooter open fire for 10 long minutes from The Mandalay Bay killing.  He killed 58 people and injuring hundreds.“At first I thought it was fireworks” said Drilling.The sheriff’s detective and her husband, a retired police officer, did their best to usher people out of the concert venue to avoid getting shot and trampled.“My training really kicked in. In law enforcement they teach you when you hear someone’s firing at you you find cover and that was my first instinct was to find cover.”Ironically in her 10 years with the Department, she’s never had to respond to a real active shooter incident but she now has personal experience of what that chaos is like.“It was a very different experience being off duty not having what we wear as protection.”In San Diego County, deputies train often.. holding drills like the one today.Every deputy has a Trauma kit. They have been improved through the years. Deputies can wear them on their leg or on their shoulder.Rescue sleds — like the one used on this mock victim– are now being put in patrol cars.Deputy Cleve Willis says the rescue sleds were a result of the San Bernardino terror attack. First Responders had a difficult time moving the injured so the rescue sleds now help them move a large number of people quickly.” It was a horrible experience something I hope to never have to do it again but I’m not going to let it ruin my life and not do the things I like to do like going to concerts so we went to Jason Aldean a couple weeks ago and it was great” said Drilling.

first_imgCountdown to Classic – 17 days until Commodity ClassicWith more than two weeks before the 2012 Commodity Classic kicks off in Nashville, Tenn., the show has broken all registration records. Last year, total attendance set a record of 4,826 show participants. This year, registrations for the 17th annual event have already surpassed the 5,000 mark with two more weeks left until onsite registration opens.”We are thrilled that more and more growers and industry professionals recognize the value of attending Commodity Classic,” said Commodity Classic co-chair Martin Barbre. “Agriculture is both an exciting and challenging way of life. Because Commodity Classic addresses farming from a grower’s perspective, attendees find they can take information they’ve gathered from the show and put what’s practical for their operations into the field.”More farm families, first-time attendees and agribusiness representatives will be at Commodity Classic than ever before. To celebrate the record breaking attendance, Commodity Classic’s 5,000th registrant, Kirk Zinkievich from Medina, N.Y., received a complimentary registration. “I’m amazed how big the show has become,” said Zinkievich. “It just shows you the importance of agriculture today.”To register for Commodity Classic, to be held March 1-3 in Nashville, visit www.commodityclassic.com.last_img read more

With LateNight Bill Government Reopens Congress Raises Debt Ceiling and Action Continues

first_imgLate last night, President Barack Obama signed a bill passed by both the House and Senate to reopen the government until Jan. 15, and raise the debt ceiling until Feb. 7. The bills, each of which passed its respective chamber with Democrat and Republican votes, ensure that federal services, including those provided by USDA, will come on line as early as today. The news coincides with a flurry of activity on farm issues on Capitol Hill.USDA – With specific regard to USDA services, it is still unclear how and in in what order the agency will reopen its regional and local offices, and at what speed services provided through operating units like the Farm Service Agency will return to normal working operation. USDA did announce this morning that selected reports published through the National Agricultural Statistics Service and the World Agricultural Outlook Board would be postponed, including the Crop Production and World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimate (WASDE). The next scheduled release of these reports will occur Nov. 8. Once ASA has additional information on when you can expect normal services to return in your area, we’ll let you know.Farm Bill – Also last night, leadership from the House and Senate Agriculture Committee announced that the conference on the farm bill would commence officially on Monday, Oct. 28, when both chambers are back in Washington. ASA has repeatedly reiterated our farm bill priorities to both the House and the Senate Agriculture Committees, as well as to the members of the farm bill conference from each chamber, and will do so again over the coming weeks to ensure that the final product that emerges from the conference will serve soybean farmers well.Waterways Infrastructure – In an unexpected development, the measure passed by the House and Senate to reopen and fund the federal government also included an increase in funding for a project that impacts soybean farmers. The funding authorization for the Olmstead Locks and Dams project in Kentucky and Illinois was raised from $775 million to $2.9 billion, a move welcomed by both ASA and our industry colleagues at the Waterways Council. Reports also indicate that with an open government and the debt ceiling crisis averted, the ASA-supported Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA), will hit the House floor for debate as early as next week.last_img read more
