Ministry of National Security Hosts Opportunity Fair in ‘Russia’

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Hundreds of residents from the inner city community of “Russia” in Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland, and surrounding areas, turned up at the Hudson Street Early Childhood Centre Wednesday (August 26) to participate in an Opportunity Fair.The Fair, organised and sponsored by the Citizens Security and Justice Programme (CSJP) of the Ministry of National Security, featured a tent village in which several social services were made available to the residents at no cost.Persons in attendance were able to access information and to register to acquire important documents such as Taxpayer Registration Numbers (TRN), birth certificates from the Registrar General’s Department (RGD), and to access the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) and the Programme of Advancement through Health and Education (PATH).In an interview with JIS News, social worker with the CSJP, Melva Spence, explained that her organisation services some 11 inner-city communities in western Jamaica. She added that similar Opportunity Fairs will be held in all of them over the next few months.“Today, we have the RGD with us, they will be providing birth certificates to the individuals who need them. We have the National Insurance office, we have the TRN persons from the Internal Revenue Department. We also have the Peace Management Initiative (PMI), and the Social Development Commission (SDC), which will be giving information on the services that they provide,” she stated.She described the attendance at the Fair as overwhelming, adding that a huge amount of requests were for birth certificates from the RGD. She explained that many persons are unable to access benefits under the PATH programme because they do not have birth certificates.She issued an appeal for all inner-city residents to attend the Opportunity Fairs, whenever and wherever possible, so that they can access the services being offered.Meanwhile community member, Faye Taylor, told JIS News that she was very pleased with the services offered at the fair, adding that it is of great assistance to the members of the community as many of them are financially challenged.

Because we are now dealing with what is basically respect for others, respect for cultural differences and respect for human life and how we treat people on a daily basis.‘What we as sport can do for this county, and we have shown it all along in specifically rugby, is that we can materially influence certain of those elements in the way we operate and the way we react to those things.’ALSO READ: No Test rugby in SA in 2020‘In terms of Blacks Lives Matter specifically, and towards the issues that are currently on the table, I think we need to own up in terms of those conversations and not steer away from those conversations. The first thing we need to do is let people tell their stories, but more importantly we’ve got to listen to those stories and then hear what they’re saying. That’s always been the issue, letting people voice what it is they believe is wrong. We’ve got to listen to those stories but more importantly we’ve got to hear what they are saying.‘We’ve got to continue dialogue and we’ve got to figure it out together and determine if we need to adapt things to help figure it out then absolutely we have to do that. What we should not do is steer away from the uncomfortable conversations and the things people refer to as the awkward truths, because it’s the realities of our lives. These issues are very serious matters that transcends way beyond sport and are part of our daily lives.‘So, certainly from our point of view, there are people voicing their concerns and we’ve got to take those concerns, listen to it and look at where we stand in terms of those. Is our plan significant and robust enough to address those things? If they need to change then we’ll go back to our executive and our unions and say listen:“Yes, we have agreed on the following and, yes, we’re happy with what we’re doing and the progress we’re making  and we consistently said we don’t celebrate progress, we’ll celebrate when we’ve got success, so maybe some of these elements we need to change.”‘Last week a group of 49 black coaches released a joint statement relating to SA Rugby’s lack of black coaches at club and provincial levels.On Tuesday, Roux singled out that matter and confirmed that SA Rugby is working on improvement in that department.‘Specifically around the coaches, Rassie [Erasmus, director of rugby] did present us with a plan around the fast tracking of black coaches and getting us to the targets quicker than where we are at the moment,’ Roux explained.‘We will look at that plan a little more seriously now and will address the issues that are there. I believe we were the first [sport governing body] to have really stepped up and shown that we have intent and a direction that we want to go in and that we’re consistently trying to achieve that.‘In terms of dialogue, a process will follow and we will listen to all of those things. Our executive will decide the way forward for us within that environment , but first foremost we need to return to what is respect for other people and human beings across the board.’ALSO READ: ‘We simply want fair opportunities’Photo: Ashley Vlotman/Gallo Imagescenter_img Published on July 21, 2020 ‘ Five one-cap Boks that could still represent South AfricaSA Rugby MagUndo SA Rugby boss on BLM: We have to own up Post by Mariette Adams Shop Bras Online | Search AdsTake a Look at These Bra and Panty SetsShop Bras Online | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Posted in News, Top headlines Tagged black lives matter, Jurie Roux, NEWS, sa rugby ‘ Loans | Search AdsGetting a loan in Hong Kong may be easier than you thinkLoans | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndoWorld Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVSA Rugby MagUndoWatch: Kolbe makes Test players look amateur – Ugo MonyeSA Rugby MagUndoSumabisThe Side Effects of Wearing Socks While Sleeping Might Surprise YouSumabis|SponsoredSponsoredUndolast_img read more

Wisconsin attorney general won’t say whether Kenosha police knew Jacob Blake had a knife before shooting him

first_imgamphotora/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(KENOSHA, Wis.) — As more details emerge surrounding the police shooting of Jacob Blake, who remains hospitalized, Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul is refusing to answer questions on whether officers knew beforehand that Blake had a knife.“We’re not commenting on that detail at this point in the investigation. Mr. Blake stated to investigators that he had a knife in his possession and there was one that was found on the driver’s side floorboard,” Kaul told ABC News’ Cecila Vega in an interview Friday on Good Morning America.When pressed on why he declined to elaborate, Kaul doubled down.“This is an ongoing investigation and we are not commenting on facts that may be disputed as this case moves forward,” he said. “Ultimately, this case is going to be presented after a full and thorough investigation to a prosecutor who is going to make a charging decision. And if there is a charge or charges that are filed in this case, this is going to be tried in a court of law and it’s our top priority to make sure we’re protecting the integrity of this investigation.”Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, was shot by police in broad daylight on Sunday in Kenosha, Wisconsin, about 40 miles south of Milwaukee. Cellphone video taken by a witness shows three police officers following Blake around his SUV, and at least one of them is seen shooting Blake multiple times in the back as he opened the driver’s side door and entered the vehicle, where his three young children were still inside.The Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigation, which is leading the probe into the incident, released new details in a statement Friday morning, identifying the officers involved and revealing that they tried twice using a stun gun on Blake while attempting to stop and arrest him but that those efforts failed.According to the statement, officers from the Kenosha Police Department were dispatched to a residence Sunday, after a female caller reported that her boyfriend was there and “was not supposed to be on the premises.” After the initial attempt to arrest Blake, Officer Rusten Sheskey deployed a stun gun to stop him. When that attempt failed, Officer Vincent Arenas also deployed a stun gun but “that taser was also not successful in stopping Mr. Blake,” the statement said.Blake then walked around his car, opened the driver’s side door and “leaned forward,” according to the statement. Sheskey, who has been with the Kenosha Police Department for seven years, fired his gun seven times into Blake’s back while holding onto his shirt, according to the statement. No other officer fired their weapon, the statement said.Officers “immediately provided medical aid” to Blake, who was then flown to a hospital in Milwaukee, according to the statement. Blake’s family told ABC News he is currently paralyzed from the waist down but that doctors hope the paralysis is temporary.During the investigation following the initial incident, Blake “admitted that he had a knife in his possession,” according to the statement. Investigators recovered a knife from the driver’s side floorboard of Blake’s vehicle. No additional weapons were found, according to the statement.The officers involved in the incident have been placed on administrative leave. The Kenosha Police Department does not have body cameras, according to the statement.The officer who deployed the second stun gun, Arenas, has been with the Kenosha Police Department since February 2019, with prior service with the United States Capitol Police. A third officer was also present at the scene, Officer Brittany Meronek, who joined the force in January, according to the statement.Prominent civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, who is one of the lawyers representing Blake’s family, said Blake was attempting to de-escalate a domestic incident when police drew their pistols and stun guns on him. He said Blake was walking away to check on his children when police shot him.Crump told ABC News that Blake’s family is calling for the officers involved in the shooting to be terminated from the police force and charged with attempted murder.Blake is handcuffed to his hospital bed, his father, Jacob Blake Sr., told ABC News. A warrant was issued on July 7 for Blake’s arrest on sexual assault and domestic abuse charges, yet it is unclear at this time if that is why he is handcuffed.In an interview Friday on CNN’s New Day, Blake’s father said his son is “fighting for his life” and that he’s sedated because he is “in so much pain.”The police shooting has sparked widespread demonstrations in Kenosha and other U.S. cities. The civil unrest in Kenosha led to cars and buildings being set on fire. Police in riot gear have deployed tear gas, flash bangs and rubber bullets to disperse the crowds. Blake’s family has repeatedly called for peaceful protests.A man shot three people near a gas station in Kenosha late Tuesday, amid a third night of protests. Two of the victims died from their injuries while a third was taken to a hospital with “serious, but non-life-threatening injuries,” according to the Kenosha Police Department.The violence prompted President Donald Trump and Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers to mobilize additional members of the National Guard to Kenosha.Cellphone video from Tuesday night’s protests shows a white man, brandishing a semiautomatic rifle, running past police and being chased by demonstrators. The armed man trips and falls, and he appears to open fire on protesters. He then is seen running away.The alleged gunman, identified as 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, surrendered to authorities in Antioch, Illinois, before dawn Wednesday, according to Antioch Interim Police Chief Geoff Guttschow. Rittenhouse was arrested based on a warrant issued by authorities in Wisconsin’s Kenosha County, charging him with first-degree intentional homicide. He’s also being held on a charge of “fugitive from justice,” for purposes of extradition to Wisconsin, Guttschow said.Charges against Rittenhouse were officially filed in Wisconsin on Thursday, including two homicide counts and one attempted homicide count. He was also charged with two counts of recklessly endangering safety and possession of a dangerous weapon by a juvenile.John Pierce, one of the attorneys who has been retained to represent Rittenhouse, told ABC News that they “will obtain justice for Kyle.”Rittenhouse, who faces five felony charges, wasn’t physically present for his initial court appearance in Illinois on Friday morning, when his lawyers asked to delay a decision on whether he should be returned to Wisconsin to face charges. The judge agreed to postpone Rittenhouse’s extradition hearing to Sept. 25.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

NEWS SCAN: E coli in raw milk, emerging E coli strains, possible weapon against tularemia, plague

first_imgMay 27, 2010Minnesota reports E coli cases linked to raw milkMinnesota health officials have confirmed three Escherichia coli infections from consumption of raw (unpasteurized) milk bought from a dairy farm near Gibbon, Minn. The Minnesota Department of Health is urging anyone who bought milk or other dairy products from the Hartmann Dairy Farm, also known as MOMs (Minnesota Organic Milk), to discard the products. The milk may be labeled as organic, so consumers may be unaware the milk has not been pasteurized, the MDH said in a press release yesterday. An article today from the Minneapolis Star Tribune listed four cases (three confirmed as linked to the farm), in an elderly man, two schoolchildren, and a 2-year-old. The 2-year-old has developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, the story said, a complication of E coli infection that can cause kidney failure or even death. From 1998 through May 2005, nationwide 45 raw-milk-associated disease outbreaks were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), accounting for 1,007 illnesses, 104 hospitalizations, and 2 deaths.May 26 MDH press releaseSix E coli strains emerge as food safety threatAlthough much attention has focused on E coli O157:H7 as a leading cause of foodborne illness, other less common strains are emerging as threats, according to a New York Times story. One of these strains on romaine lettuce, O145, has sickened at least 26 people in five states, according to the CDC. Few food companies test for the six non-O157 strains, they are low on physicians’ radar, and only about 5% of medical labs are equipped to detect their presence in patients, partly because testing for them is more difficult and time-consuming than for O157:H7. “This is something that we really have to look at,” said Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., who intends to introduce a bill that would define a broad range of disease-causing E coli strains to be illegal in ground beef and require the meat industry to test for them. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has been considering this move for 3 years, but the meat industry has resisted, saying the strains have not been a problem in beef and that current safety steps suffice to keep all strains at bay. The USDA has been reluctant to ban the additional strains of E coli in beef until it has tests that can rapidly detect them, which should be in place by the end of next year.May 26 New York Times reportNovel treatment may protect against tularemia, plague, other pathogensScientists have developed a novel treatment that may protect against tularemia, plague, and other bacteria, according to a study in mice, reported today in PLoS Pathogens. The study was a collaboration among researchers from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases’s (NIAID’s) Rocky Mountain Laboratories in Hamilton, Mont., Colorado State University in Fort Collins, and Juvaris Biotherapeutics of Burlingame, Calif. Researchers combined components isolated from the membrane of a weakened strain of Francisella tularensis, the tularemia pathogen, with the Juvaris product CLDC (cationic liposome DNA complexes). The combination stimulates a natural immune mechanism that kills invading bacteria and prevents their replication and spread, according to an NIAID release. Of mice that were treated with the therapeutic agent and then given a usually lethal pulmonary dose of F tularensis 3 days later, 60% survived. No mice survived when given the CLDC alone. The treatment also protected human immune cells against plague, brucellosis, and melioidosis, as well as tularemia. “A therapeutic that protects against a wide array of bacterial pathogens would have enormous medical and public health implications for naturally occurring infections and potential agents of bioterrorism,” NIAID Director Anthony S. Fauci, MD, said in the news release.May 27 PLoS Pathog studylast_img read more
