And now she is tarnished for no good reasons and so we are all tarnished and divided and the British can sit back as they have done for 100s of years, and see how their rules make us easier to control, even while it’s destroying innocent lives..” Harvey had apparently been under investigation by the Integrity Commission since August for allegedly refusing to pay customs duty on some items brought in on a cruise line to the Grand Turk Cruise Center. This writer, who preferred to remain anonymous, explained that this is all bogus and even if she did do something wrong, there are ways to deal with matter. I quote again: “Customs’ has many rules and penalties it can impose on anyone from the Premier down if they think there has been a breach of the rules. Why were these penalties not imposed if there was something wrong? We go all the way to arresting a woman who has never had a traffic ticket, and destroy her reputation? Why?” Harvey, who has been in the Ministry of Finance for ten years and has been PS of finance for two years, will have to face two counts of violating the integrity commission ordinance in court on December 1st. The writer concluded in that Thursday letter to media with encouragement for Athenee Harvey and a warning to the Integrity Commission to, “go lightly” as they put it.

Magnetic Media has learned that for years now, it had not been a standard practice for travellers to present identification to local airlines or ferry services to prove who they are; this is a common practice in other countries, especially reinforced in a post 911 world. Well the enforcement is on and valid forms of identification are a requirement for all travel within the Turks and Caicos Islands. Related Items:domestic travel, idlast_img read more

Ardenne High shows faith in physically challenged student

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKingston, Jamaica, December 25, 2016 – On realizing that physically disabled student at Ardenne High School in Kingston, Faith Grant, would be unable to attend a class held only on one of the institution’s upper floors, the school’s administration promptly moved to solve the challenge.Electronic Document Preparation and Management (EDPM), a Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) subject designed to equip students with clerical and administrative skills, was one of the eight subjects Faith selected when she started fourth form.  But being the school’s sole wheelchair mobile student placed her at a disadvantage as she was unable to attend classes in the designated rooms.However, innovative thinking by the staff, headed by Principal, Nadine Molloy, has resulted in Faith now being able to participate with the other students via the video-conferencing technology platform, Skype, which she accesses from the school’s library.  “A member of the team suggested that we do it by Skype; and we explored it and now we are happy that we did,” Ms. Molloy said.Recounting her decision to accept Faith as a student at Ardenne, Ms. Molloy says while acknowledging the anticipated challenges in doing so, the school was, nonetheless, willing to make the necessary adjustments to accommodate her.  “Some persons wondered if we were doing the right thing. But I am always up for a challenge and I indicated to the staff that I was going to try, which meant we were all going to try,” she states.The Principal indicates that she researched cerebral palsy and had the staff consult with trained personnel on how best to relate to and teach students with the condition.  Consequent on this, Ms. Molloy says Faith’s presence at the school has helped students and staff to be more embracing of and sensitive to persons with disabilities.   “It teaches acceptance and it shows that some things that we are afraid of, we don’t need to be. It also shows that it is important for us to make the sacrifice and go the extra mile to ensure that each person, no matter their capacity, can self-actualize,” she adds.The Principal is confident that Faith will evolve into a productive member of society because she has been given the opportunity to pursue her education.  When Faith was diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a young child, her mother, Susan Henry, purposed to provide her with as fulfilling a life as is possible.Ms. Henry says she acknowledged that this would mean doing everything possible to provide her with the best educational opportunities.  She says it was on the advice of a therapist that she decided to have Faith enrolled in the mainstream school system, instead of a special needs institution.Ms. Henry said that she is happy with the decision taken and is very grateful for and appreciative of Ardenne’s kind gesture in going the extra mile over the years to accommodate Faith.  She says the teachers and students have been particularly helpful, adding that the administration has endeavored to accommodate classes on the ground floor and install ramps for Faith’s benefit.“Schools should really give physically disabled children a chance, as long as they are able to function…on par with other children. We need to accept that persons with disabilities are humans (too) and they should not be discriminated against,” Ms. Henry contends.  She adds that, in so doing, “it also teaches the younger generation values of kindness and of being helpful, and sensitises them to the needs of the disabled community.”Cerebral palsy is a disorder that affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills.   As the condition affects coordination, functions such as standing, breathing, bladder control, eating and talking can be affected.

BAHAMAS The healthcare system faced with aged health facilities

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, March 13, 2018 – Nassau – Minister of Health the Hon. Dr. Duane Sands said the country’s healthcare system is faced with aged health facilities that were built in the 1980s and have experienced significant natural disasters, as many are close to the coast and vulnerable to environmental hazards.“We must continually repair to maintain services at our facilities.”  Dr. Sands said during his Contribution to the Mid-term Budget Debate in the House of Assembly, Monday, March 12, 2018.He said the current outstanding projected infrastructure cost for improvement on community clinics approximates some $46,580,000.“I am pleased to report that the West End Community Clinic opened late last year.”Dr. Sands explained that this government administration came into office with the side opposite having promised the world in terms of repairs and refurbishment of the healthcare facilities throughout the archipelago.“We are unable to fund the proposed infrastructure improvements in our clinics as there was no money.  Hence, we have had to put many infrastructural projects on hold as the staff work assiduously to ensure our people are cared for in a safe environment.”He said limited capital development work continues at healthcare institutions.  By mid-April, the Corey Newbold Ward in the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) will be re-opened following a complete renovation programme to the 40-bed ward.  This will reduce the protracted wait times for admissions and theatre services.The Health Minister said that plans are also underway for the redevelopment of the East Wing block of PMH to reduce the shortages of public ward beds and renovate/upgrade relevant areas for improved access and environments of care for public patients.Key public patient areas to be addressed are Eye Ward, Maternity Ward, Children’s Ward, and Male Surgical Wards.  The consolidation, renovation and upgrade of all Private Services to one area of the hospital is also planned with a view to improving opportunities for revenue generation for the public health authority.He said, “I am very pleased to report that my Ministry has initiated an Emergency and Urgent Care Services project.“The overall goal of this important project is to improve my Ministry’s response to the critical needs of residents in New Providence for emergency and urgent care. This multifaceted project will, on the one end, address non-life threatening/urgent care treatment in the community clinics; and on the other end, focus on the Accident & Emergency Department to ensure true emergencies are better accommodated and managed for timely and quality care.”The urgent care component of this project will begin at the South Beach Health Centre and the Elizabeth Estates Clinic.  The project seeks to improve workflows, policies and procedures, information management, customer service, staffing, and availability of services to the population.More specifically, the project will seek to decompress A&E Department and reduce wait times, overcrowding and upgrade the patient care environment.Dr. Sands said the renovation and upgrading of the A&E Department at PMH is specifically targeted with emphasis on decanting planning to minimise interruptions to essential services. It is anticipated that the phased renovation will span 12-14 months once initiated.The Health Minister said, “The Infrastructure Working Group continues to work to establish realistic timelines and budgets for each phase, inclusive of equipment and furniture needs.  We are eagerly looking to fast-track the process to begin works within a three-month timeframe.”Plans for the Rand Memorial HospitalHe noted that at the Rand Memorial Hospital, funds have been identified to execute the upgrading and expansion of much needed clinical space.This will be achieved following the relocation of the Kitchen and Cafeteria to the property adjacent to the Rand Memorial (former Island Palm Hotel).A connecting corridor is being constructed between the two properties that will also accommodate physician offices, on-call rooms; and relocated Security and Telephone Services. Additionally, the General Practice and CNCD Clinics are being relocated to the IAT Building (a rented facility) located opposite the Rand Hospital.He said, “This additional clinical space affords the opportunity to extend the hours of operation for these services from 8:00 a.m. to midnight and institute a patient appointment system.“This ultimately will improve patient access, satisfaction and reduce wait times. This move will also afford the desired result of better responding to the critical needs in the Accident & Emergency Department at this hospital.”Plans for Sandilands Rehabilitation CentreDr. Sands said at Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre, renovation of the now vacant Child & Adolescent Ward to establish a new Forensic Psychiatry service is expected to meet the current and immediate future needs of this high-risk patient population.He said, “Historically, 90 per cent of forensic psychiatry patients are referred from the courts and the remaining 10 per cent are transferred from the Bahamas Correctional Services Department.“Presently, all patients are admitted to SRC’s New Eloise Penn Ward, resulting in severe overcrowding.  In the outpatient setting, community forensic services are offered at the Community Counseling & Assessment Centre (CCAC) in a rather limited capacity.” Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

Habitat home has womens touch

first_imgAddress: 521 E. 33rd St., Vancouver.Telephone: 360-737-1759.Web: Evergreen Habitat for Humanity.A house rising up in the Lincoln neighborhood is a first in several ways. Most importantly, it’s a first step toward stability for a young family.The construction site at 1027 W. 39th St. is the first project by Habitat for Humanity in the neighborhood. It is the first “Women Build” project undertaken by the nonprofit’s Evergreen chapter. And while it’s the first home for the young couple scheduled to move in this summer, they also plan on it being their last.Their future neighbors roundly welcomed the new project to the corner of Lincoln and 39th.The 1,350-square-foot home is the first for Evergreen Habitat that’s designed, planned and constructed by women. However, when volunteers raised the house’s outer walls two weeks ago, there were a few men on site to lend professional expertise to that crucial stage of the process.But female volunteer interest permitting, the house will be built mostly by women, said Brenda Tiefenthaler, a former board member of Evergreen Habitat. Nationwide, some 1,400 such projects exist. ON a recent build day, several of the women present had extensive experience in the construction industry, just not the hands-on kind.Gerri Colburn, who is the project leader for the Lincoln home, spent the last 16 years in project management in the industry. But she pounded her first nails at the Habitat house a few weeks ago. She and other volunteers went through training at the Lowe’s on Southeast Mill Plain Boulevard, where they got an introduction to power tools and worked on a mock wall.last_img read more
