Young People Urged To Stay Away From Illegal Activities IndustryFebruary 3, 2013Written by: Garfield L. Angus RelatedYoung People Urged To Stay Away From Illegal Activities Advertisements Minister of State in the Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Sharon Ffolkes-Abrahams, has called on young people to turn away from illegal activities and use their skills for production and wealth creation.Speaking at the Granville Crime Prevention Summit, held at the Sunset Beach and Spa in Montego Bay, on January 31, Mrs. Ffolkes-Abrahams said she will be spearheading a move to have navigation skills taught to young people in the parish by the Caribbean Maritime Institute, as the skills are in high demand globally.The State Minister, who is also Member of Parliament for West Central St. James, also called on the young people to make full use of opportunities in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector, in Montego Bay.“There is a great demand in the world for persons who can work in these areas. We have a vision to build up the young people in Montego Bay, and I am rolling out an entrepreneurial programme next month, and the idea is to give persons the skills to start a business, and also to give them a start,” Mrs. Ffolkes-Abrahams said.“We don’t have a lot of money, but we have a big vision, and with that vision many persons can come on board. In terms of ICT, there is a whole area there for young people; the problem is in the scamming. We have to rid our communities of scamming, because it is draining our economy. We don’t want that image, so we want to steer the young people away from illegal activities to very productive means,” she added.She told the gathering that countries have recognized the skills of Jamaicans and are seeking to employ them, so it is important that the country’s image be protected, and that the actions of the minority do not destroy and stifle the progress of the majority of persons who are honest and hardworking.“Canada and many other countries are asking for our truck drivers and others, because Jamaicans are very skilled, so we want to turn that ability around from negative to positive, from illegal to legal activities that can result in production and wealth creation,” the State Minister said.

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — A New Jersey woman who survived Superstorm Sandy and received help from strangers is calling on people to step up and return the favor to the people in the Carolinas who are in the crosshairs of Hurricane Florence. Joan DeLucia has formed a group of New Jerseyians and set up a Facebook page to help transport equipment to residents in North and South Carolina in the recovery process after Hurricane Florence blows through.“They are now in the line of the hurricane so we are taking donations, packing trucks and bringing them stuff to help them out,” DeLucia told ABC News over a phone interview. “Not as much as they helped us but as much as we can right now.”Superstorm Sandy was one of the deadliest and most destructive storms of the 2012 hurricane season. It caused 117 deaths and led to approximately 20,000 people having to take shelter, according to the CDC.DeLucia said she hasn’t forgotten the goodwill displayed by the people of the Carolinas during those difficult times.“The North Carolina Baptist men … came in for two, three probably three and a half years and did mold remediation for free,” DeLucia said. “They also did repairs to the home and helped rebuild.”“They stayed here seven days a week, 24 hours a day. They brought a trailer down, made themselves the little spot. And people would go to them and ask them for help. They would do everything and anything they can do.”Hurricane Florence, a Category 1 storm, barrelled into North Carolina early Friday with wind gusts hovering around 100 mph. Officials feared it will drop “biblical” floodwaters.DeLucia knows what those residents are in for.“They’re going to wake up in a few days their worlds are going to be changed. Everything’s going to be different,” DeLucia said. “And we just want to provide a little bit of help.”That’s why DeLucia is urging people who benefitted from the kindness that helped her through the aftermath of Sandy to give back.She is asking for materials like lights, batteries, generators and work gloves, among other things, which she plans to transport down south.Billy Layton is one of the people who helped after Sandy and now needs the goodwill to come back. He stayed in New Jersey for three years after the storm and helped rebuild homes.“I was a coordinator for a rebuilt site. We came up and rebuilt homes that had flood damage after the storm,” Layton, 61, said.On Friday morning, Layton and his family were awaiting Hurricane Florence.“We’re in Lumberton of North Carolina,” he said. “We’re just waiting [on the storm].”DeLucia said to her friends in the Carolinas that even though they’re going through difficult times now, the most important thing is to survive the storm and rebuild afterward.“They’re going to get through this,” she said. “We can replace everything but human life.”Layton, meanwhile, said he is pleased to see the people of New Jersey showing the same kindness he displayed years ago.“It’s very good to see people paying it forward,” Layton said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Nelson said his office will take applicants through Wednesday, February 11. The subject matter ranges from disaster preparedness, fire suppression and disaster medical operations to some search and rescue and team organization techniques. Program Coordinator Dan Nelson said they have about 15 applicants which is plenty to host the class but can take up to 25. The training involves four courses which begin on a Friday evening from 6 – 9 pm and then three full Saturday courses ending with a mock emergency. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Just over a week remains before the Community Emergency Response Team training courses begin in Soldotna. To apply for the courses, visit the Kenai Peninsula Borough’s Office of Emergency Managment’s web page. Nelson: “The main benefits for Community Emergency Response Team members is to be prepared individually and as a household for disasters, here in the Kenai Peninsula we’ve seen wildfires, floods, and there’s always the possibilities for earthquakes and volcanoes. So we teach people how to be prepared for that individually and at a household level. Beyond that the skills we teach would be useful if we had a real big disaster situation, the medical skills, the fire skills, could help them with their neighbors, their house, those types of things.”

The closer the weekend gets, the sharper the lines get and the harder it is to find value on NFL picks, but this week I’ve found a couple which are of interest. MORE: Get the latest NFL odds at Sportsbook Review Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Denver BroncosOpening line: Broncos -3 (-110) & O/U 38 -110There’s a few things that jump out at me here. The Broncos are statistically better than their record so far. After losing to a pumped-up Oakland team in the opener, they’ve controlled their games in terms of possession and first downs. They had the ball for six minutes more against the Bears in Week 2 and 11 minutes more against the Packers, with 13 more first downs in those two games.They have been moving the ball well, controlling tempo and creating turnovers on defense, but that hasn’t translated into touchdowns as of yet. They’re running well, with Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman forming a good partnership, and for his many flaws, Joe Flacco hasn’t been the entire issue for this team. He does need Courtland Sutton to fully make the leap and rookie TE Noah Fant not to fumble, but if a Freeman rushing TD wasn’t called back against the Packers last week they could have stolen a win there.Week 4 NFL PICKS:Against the spread | Straight-up picksThe Broncos are overdue for a big sack game, too — an amazing trend with Vic Fangio as HC and Von Miller and Bradley Chubb as elite pass rushers. They’re yet to record a sack this season. That has to be more of an anomaly than the norm.For this game specifically, Jalen Ramsey looks like he might be checked out waiting for a trade. That’s a huge boost for the Broncos, facing a rookie QB who admittedly has played well. But they don’t have a whole lot of targets, and with Chris Harris Jr. probably shutting down DJ Chark, there’s not much to throw to.And finally, if you want a further statistical note, their home record in September is brilliant. From Week 3 of 2012, the Broncos have won 13 games straight at home in September up until the game they threw away against the Browns two weeks ago. The altitude with teams who aren’t up to full fitness gives them a decent advantage.NFL pick: Broncos straight up at -170Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago BearsOpening line: Broncos -3 (-110) & O/U 38 -110Two of the best defenses in the league face off in an NFC North clash which neither can afford to lose. With the Lions still undefeated at 2-0-1 and the Packers losing on Thursday night, it gives a chance for the winner of this game to join the Packers atop the division at 3-1.I very much doubt this will be a high-scoring game, a view shared by the bookies with a line of around 38.5 on the NFL odds board, which is right around where I think it should be. It’s a divisional game, so both teams know each other well, and both are hitting opposition QBs regularly — Bears with 11 sacks, Vikings with 10 — this season. They’re 10th and 12th in yards allowed per game, respectively, and second and fifth in points allowed per game in the small sample we’ve had this season.So what’s the differentiating factor here? For me, it’s the offenses. The Bears offense just doesn’t work at the moment and that’s pretty much entirely on Mitchell Trubisky.MORE: Complete game-by-game betting guide for Week 4Frankly, he’s just not very good at the moment. He can make a few plays, but is horribly off-target on so many easy throws and this is with a simplified playbook in place for him. Yes, he had three TDs on Monday, all to Taylor Gabriel, who is likely to miss this week with a concussion, but one was a busted coverage, one a fantastic catch, and the other from the 1-yard line.Admittedly, Kirk Cousins isn’t exactly pulling up any trees on the other side of the ball, but he’s not being asked to. And for my NFL pick I think this is where the Vikings will win the game. They have the best rusher in the league at the moment in Dalvin Cook, and despite the fact that teams know the gameplan and know Cook is going to get the ball, they’ve been unable to stop them so far this season. He is well and truly passing the eye-test so far and has put up over 100 yards and one TD each game.Even when Cook is rested, they’ve got the rookie Alexander Mattison who can step in and do a similar job to Cook. He also found the end zone last week on his limited carries. The Bears’ gameplan revolves around forcing turnovers on defense and giving their average QB good field position to work with. Not even Mitch is able to mess up too badly when they get the ball inside the opponents 30. If the Vikings avoid turnovers, they win this match.NFL pick: Vikings +110 straight upThe parlay at the prices quoted pays out at +233.
E-mail: [email protected] It took awhile to get started, thanks to a couple of thunderstorms that rolled through the Utah campus Sunday afternoon, but once it did, it didn’t take long for the Utah women’s soccer team to jump all over Boise State.The Utes scored three first-half goals and cruised to a 3-0 victory over the Broncos to improve to 4-2-1 on the season. The Broncos dropped to 5-3.”That’s always nice to start fast,” said Utah coach Rich Manning.”Hopefully we’re starting to find a rhythm.”Hailey Marsh, Amanda Feigt and Melissa Wayman each scored goals for the Utes and goalkeeper Ashley Mason and the Ute defense kept the Broncos out of the goal.The opening kickoff was delayed about 45 minutes because of lightning at Ute Field, following a drenching rain. Then after less than four minutes of action, play was again delayed due to more lightning. Finally, at about the time the game should have been winding down, play resumed for good.Manning felt his team wasn’t as sharp coming back from the delay, but the Utes still got on the board quickly.At the 16:10 mark, Marsh took a pass from Kim Lloyd and put the ball in the left center from about eight yards out.”We’ve worked hard in practice on crashing the box and making smart cuts through the defense,” said Marsh, a sophomore from Colorado. “When Kim crossed the ball it was second nature to go up and get the ball.””Hailey has been working really hard in practice and earned a start,” said Manning. “She’s really good in the air, and she demonstrated that on the goal.”Then at the 33:24 mark, Feigt, the Utes’ top scorer, made it 2-0 with an unassisted goal into the upper right-hand corner, her third of the season. Finally, with just 19 seconds left in the first half, Melissa Wayman scored on a header from five yards out off a corner kick from Erin Pruitt.”That third goal was big I thought, because it gave us confidence and a bit of a cushion going into halftime,” Manning said.Boise State had seven shots on goal, but only four resulted in saves by Mason, who notched her ninth career shutout. The Utes have two home games coming up, Thursday at 3:30 p.m. against Washington State and Sunday at 1 p.m. against Utah State before taking a trip to southern California the following week.
