Morality is Rooted in the Family …Says PM Golding

first_imgAdvertisements FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Prime Minister Bruce Golding, has noted that Government is doing what it can to enforce laws, but values must come from the home.“We are facing a crisis, but the greatest crisis has nothing to do with what is happening in the global financial markets. Our greatest crisis is a crisis of values…We can pass laws to punish, but morality must come from the people, it is rooted in the family. Our (Jamaican) values must be formed and defined by Christian principles and values.”Mr. Golding was speaking at a Prayer and Restorative Service at the National Arena this afternoon (March 4). The Prime Minister said that Jamaica was a land of hope and that we live in an era of freedom of choice, but there were still fundamental principles of right and wrong.“We have got to the stage where we shape and define values to suit ourselves…When we are assured that every child born has a loving mother and father who teach love and pass on values of right and wrong, then we will not need to ban songs from airwaves,” Prime Minister Golding said.In his address, the Governor-General, His Excellency the Most Hon. Dr Patrick Allen noted that the call for restoration to traditional values must include action as well as prayer for a just society.“We have become separated from our traditional values, morals and customs and these have negatively affected our normal way of life…We must also work to establish a just society in which each citizen will feel part of an inclusive system of opportunities and development for all,” said the Governor-General.Organised by the Power of Faith Ministries, St Catherine and Portmore, the service was held at the National Arena under the theme, “Heal the Family, Heal the Nation”. The service featured Church leaders praying for the safety of the family, business community, security forces, medical and legal professionals and political leaders.The service was also attended by the Mayor of Kingston, Councillor Desmond McKenzie and the Mayor of Portmore, Keith Hinds.

Photo courtesy of Open House Ministries The event began as a barbeque for the homeless; sponsored by the Rotary Club. By 2015, it had grown to the community event for those in need and has been drawing some 500 people in years past. The annual gathering features nonprofits, organizations, businesses, and ministries from across Clark County.“It’s an important open house to offer a community resource to people to get people connected,” said Open House Communications Manager Dina Hovde. “That’s one of the things they see as really needed among the homeless community is for them to even know what’s available to help them.”The event will be held inside the new Family Resource Center at Open House’s main campus in downtown Vancouver. Since much of the event will take place inside the large space, weather will not be an issue. Open House’s bike shop and thrift store will also be open and selling merchandise.  Free meals are provided for two hours during the event, and families in need are encouraged to come out and be blessed by the resources.

Photo courtesy of Open House MinistriesAmong the most popular services offered is the barbeque, with free hot dogs and hamburgers served this year from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The free veterinary care is also a well-loved part of the event, with Banfield Pet Hospital contributing their resources to give pet care to people who usually would not be able to afford the service. Hovde explained that there will also be alumni of the Open House shelter and program at the event. This is valuable to show current and future residents what restoration looks like as well as a good time to check in with the alumni, she said.  “We want to be a partner in the solutions, and help energize people to be part of the solution in our community,” she said. “It’s something that we’ve been advertising and libraries and community outreach centers and places where people in need go.”Also on the site will be Clark County Volunteer Lawyers, Clark County Food Bank, Friends of the Carpenter, Lighthouse Community Credit Union, Hope Lift, Human Services Council, Clark County Superior Court Therapeutic Courts, SHARE, and many more. “Really, the whole idea is about connection, and finding connections to work together toward the things that individuals need,” she said. “Whether that be court services, whether that be food services, whether those be spiritual services, it’s really a chance for people to connect with the people in our community.” The pet clinic will run during the entire event, while food and some other services will only be for a portion of the time. For more information on the schedule and the services to be offered, you can contact Open House through their website or on Facebook.     AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyLatestVancouvershare 0 Previous : Smith Tower shooting suspect pleads not guilty Next : Ridgefield band class hits all the right notesAdvertisementThis is placeholder text Subscribe Connect with LoginI allow to create an accountWhen you login first time using a Social Login button, we collect your account public profile information shared by Social Login provider, based on your privacy settings.

EE earmarks full BT integration by 2021

Read More >> Read more BT consumer boss opens net neutrality debate AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 30 MAY 2017 Tags Home EE earmarks full BT integration by 2021 Author EE CEO Marc Allera expects to fully integrate with parent company BT’s consumer arm within four years, in a move which “would create a £10 billion line of business”.Following its £12.5 billion acquisition of EE in early 2016, BT kept the mobile operator largely separate from its consumer business, and the two brands continue to compete in the mobile, broadband and pay-TV markets.Latest financial figures showed EE is leading the way, generating £5.1 billion in revenue during in the year to end-March, while BT consumer amassed £4.9 billion.Speaking to Financial Times (FT), Allera maintained the strategy to operate the two groups separately had been right so far, but said he was excited by “the future opportunity as a group from bringing BT and EE together”.“It is there in the back of our minds,” he said, adding: “Over the long term there are opportunities to make consumer routes to market simpler.”Speculation BT would fully merge EE with its consumer business sooner rather than later recently heightened, FT reported.Indeed, the mobile operator was positioned as the growth engine for BT in its group financial results announcement on 11 May.The two began their integration process in January 2016, but the businesses have had limited crossover so far, despite distinct overlaps.BT’s sport content has been offered to EE customers, while BT Broadband services are sold in EE’s retail stores.Allera added a complex accounting scandal and profit warnings at BT’s Italian division had not affected strategy, with 5G central to the group’s mobile ambitions.

People / CSX board to vote on appointment of Hunter Harrison as new CEO next month

first_imgHunter Harrison CEO speaks as CP held its annual meetin in the Royal York Hotel in Toronto today May 1st 2013 unlike last year there were no fireworks where the CEO,Fred Green was forced into early retirement….COLIN MCCONNELL TORONTO STAR) Colin McConnell/Toronto Star By Alexander Whiteman 16/02/2017 North America rail turnaround king Hunter Harrison has moved a step closer to taking the top job at CSX.The carrier’s board called a meeting to discuss his potential appointment as chief executive, along with activist investor fund Mantle Ridge taking a 5% share of the company.Mantle Ridge has an exclusive contract with Mr Harrison after he resigned as chief executive of Canadian Pacific and has been promoting his appointment to CSX.CSX has been planning the succession of 39-year company veteran chairman and chief executive Michael Ward, a process that may have been accelerated by Mr Harrison’s availability.center_img Last week, the CSX board held a five-hour meeting with Mantle Ridge and Mr Harrison, during which the fund made two demands: that it gets substantial representation on the CSX board; and Mr Harrison becomes CEO.In a statement this week, the carrier said: “It became apparent that CSX would be unable to retain Mr Harrison unless it acceded to Mantle Ridge’s requests with respect to the composition of the CSX board and the governance of CSX, in addition to agreeing to Mr Harrison’s terms of employment at a total cost which CSX estimates to exceed $300m.”CSX’s initial proposals included: Mr Harrison’s appointment as chief executive, with “suitable compensation”; the appointment of Mantle Ridge chief executive Paul Hilal and three other mutually agreed individuals to its board; the retirement of four CSX directors over the next three years; board chair and committee composition to be determined by the newly constituted board; and no standstill agreement between CSX and Mantle Ridge.Mantle Ridge and Mr Harrison turned these down, however, and CSX returned with another set of proposals.These include a four-year contract for Mr Harrison, with a package totalling of $300m and a 1% share of CSX’s common stock; the immediate retirement of Mr Ward; the appointment of four additional Mantle Ridge employees to the CSX board, alongside Mr Hilal and Mr Harrison; the retirement of three CSX directors in 2017, followed by the retirement of presiding director Edward Kelly in 2018; director John Breaux to be ineligible to stand for re-election following 2018’s annual general meeting; Mr Hilal to succeed Mr Kelly as chairman after a year as vice chairman; the chairs of the carrier’s compensation and governance committees to be selected by Mantle Ridge, with “heavy” representation on both bodies.However, CSX also had concerns over these conditions, namely that they would grant effective control to a shareholder that actually holds less than 5% of its stock, and that Mr Harrison’s remuneration was largely in the form of an upfront payment with only a portion based on performance.A statement said: “The CSX board believes such an employment arrangement for an incoming chief executive is exceptionally unusual, if not unprecedented.”A special meeting will be held on 16 March with a vote on the proposals.Mr Harrison resigned from Canadian Pacific at the beginning of the month, handing back $90m in benefits in the process to free himself from any non-compete clauses in his contract.The shock decision buoyed CSX investors, with heightened speculation that he would be joining the carrier, replacing Mr Ward.Renowned as the man that turned around the post-privatisation fortunes of Canadian National, Mr Harrison joined CP in 2012 after an approach from activist investor Bill Ackman. Current CP chairman Andrew Reardon said he had left the carrier with a strong foundation for future success.Should Mr Harrison’s move to CSX be confirmed, this would not be the first time he has flirted with the US railroad, having placed an unsuccessful bid to merge CP with CSX in 2014.That move launched a quest to create a transcontinental carrier that then led to a $28bn bid for Norfolk Southern in 2015, which, had it succeeded, would have been the largest railroad merger ever.However, a combination of NS’s dissatisfaction with the proposed offer and its insistence that the US Surface Transportation Board would never greenlight the move led to it being aborted last April.last_img read more

Atlanta police searching for man who posed as cop to assault woman

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(ATLANTA) — Atlanta police are searching for a man they say impersonated a police officer and sexually assaulted at least one woman early Friday morning.The victim told police that she was pulled over around 1 a.m. After asking for her license and registration, the suspect told the victim to step out of her vehicle and sexually assaulted her, Atlanta Police Major Crimes Maj. Michael O’Connor said at a press conference Monday.A second woman also reported being sexually assaulted by a man impersonating a police officer in Cobb County, Georgia.The assaults happened within a few hours of each other and Atlanta Police Department investigators are working closely with Cobb County investigators to determine if the impersonator in both cases is the same man.Both victims reported the vehicle as a dark-colored, four-door sedan with a light bar on top, according to Atlanta police. The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 6 feet tall, wearing dark-colored clothing and a star-shaped badge.“Any of the vehicles that we have with light bars on top of them are marked and clearly say ‘Atlanta police’ on the side of them,” O’Connor said. “Our unmarked vehicles don’t have light bars on the top.”Atlanta police advise anyone uncomfortable with a police stop to indicate to the officer you intend to stop and call 911. Let the dispatcher know you are being stopped and ask them to verify there is a legitimate officer stopping you.“We want to make sure the public knows how to keep themselves safe if they are uncertain if the person who pulls them over is a police officer,” O’Connor said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
