Netball Jamaica closer to naming coach

first_imgThe interview process to select the new head coach of the Jamaica Sunshine Girls team is scheduled to be completed this week.President of Netball Jamaica (NJ) Paula Daley-Morris told The Gleaner in an interview that three individuals, two locals and one from overseas, have applied for the job.Daley-Morris said that her association has interviewed one person so far, and the others will be done this week.”We have to interview people when they are available and so the coach will be named once the process is finished,” said Daley-Morris.The Sunshine Girls have been without a head coach since November, after the resignation Minneth Reynolds, following the team’s 2-1 away series win over rivals England.CLEAR FAVOURITEThe Gleaner has been reliably informed by sources close to the situation that Connie Francis is the clear favourite to land the job.The vastly experienced Francis, who led Jamaica at the FAST5 Netball World Series in New Zealand last October, would be returning for her second stint as the Sunshine Girls head coach.Francis, who represented Waulgrovians during her playing career, led the Sunshine Girls to a bronze medal at the World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand, in 2007.The tough-talking tactician also guided the Jamaicans to the bronze medal at the inaugural FastNet Championships in 2008.Francis represented Jamaica at five World Championships. After coaching Jamaica to the bronze in 2007, Francis was relieved of her duties ahead of the 2011 World Champion-ships. She then had a stint with the St Lucia national team.Efforts were made to gauge Francis’ interest in the post but she could not be reached for a comment.last_img read more

InniBos: Lowveld Arts Festival

first_img25 June 2004A bright new star shines in South Africa’s arts festival circuit. The Lowveld National Arts Festival, InniBos (literally: In the Bush), takes place in Nelspruit from 30 June to 3 July, with over 60 productions set to take place amid the Lowveld’s magnificent scenery and amazing winter climate.InniBos is based on the Klein Karoo National Arts Festival and Aardklop Festival, but with its own unique packaging.In essence, InniBos is an Afrikaans arts festival – though with a strong Portuguese component, due to the fact that the Lowveld is situated ideally to serve the Mozambican and Gauteng Portuguese-speaking market.Other South African cultures will be involved in some of the productions, like jazz and classical music productions that pay no heed to cultural borders.A symphony concert, Afrikaans rock and satirical acts also feature among over 60 productions in 12 different venues. There will also be an extended arts and flea market, and multiple open stages to supply endless entertainment to festival goers.For more information on the festival programme, venues, bookings, accommodation and bushveld adventures on the side, visit the InniBos website – available in Afrikaans, Portuguese and English.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

Senate confirms Branstad U.S. Ambassador to China

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The U.S. Senate confirmed of Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad to be the U.S. Ambassador to China, a move which many in agriculture appreciated.“As the six-term governor of a state with more than $10 billion in annual agricultural exports, Terry Branstad is an ideal person to help facilitate the U.S. beef industry’s return to the Chinese market for the first time in 13-plus years,” said Craig Uden, president of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. “Ambassador Branstad has said that he intends to serve American-produced beef at the U.S. embassy in Beijing, and America’s cattle producers look forward to working with him to make that a reality as soon as possible.”The announcement comes at a particularly important time for the U.S. cattle industry and trade with China. There is just one more round of technical consultations for the U.S. agreement with China on access to Chinese beef markets with a July 16 deadline before U.S. beef is allowed in the country after being locked out for 13 years.last_img read more

Jamaicans Urged To Assist War Veterans By Donating To Poppy Appeal

first_img This has been the goal of the Island Council for Jamaica Legion, which maintains the Curphey Home in Newport, Manchester. Story Highlights Jamaicans are being encouraged to assist in the welfare of the country’s ex-service men, by donating to the cause. Through its annual National Poppy Appeal, now underway, the legion is seeking to raise funds to maintain the home. As the world community prepares to recognize the sacrifices of war veterans on Remembrance Day, Monday, November 11, Jamaicans are being encouraged to assist in the welfare of the country’s ex-service men, by donating to the cause.Having fought valiantly alongside servicemen from other countries, during the two most extensive global conflicts of all time – World War I (1914 to 1918) and World War II (1939 to 1945), it is only fitting that Jamaica’s war veterans be given the opportunity to enjoy their twilight years in comfort.This has been the goal of the Island Council for Jamaica Legion, which maintains the Curphey Home in Newport, Manchester, a residential facility for indigent ex-servicemen and women.Founded in 1958, the home, which is the only establishment of its kind in Jamaica, provides food, clothing and nursing for residents on a daily basis. There are currently 13 residents at the facility.Through its annual National Poppy Appeal, now underway, the legion is seeking to raise funds to maintain the home and assist the welfare of other ex-servicemen across the island.Chairman of the Legion, Colonel (Ret’d) Torrance Lewis, tells JIS News that in addition to running the Curphey Home, the funds go toward the general support of ex-servicemen through grants and pensions.He says that there are approximately 200 veterans still living across the island, who are no longer self-sufficient. The widows are also taken care of even when the war veterans pass on.“We would like people to contribute as much as possible. Every time they see a poppy tin, just drop something in it. That is the main source of getting funds to maintain the health of the ex-service men. Sometimes, they are people who have served before there was the National Insurance Scheme (NIS), they have no medical cover and so we have to finance their entire welfare. We also give the existing ex-service men, those who are needy, we give them a grant each month. In fact, we will be paying out a grant monthly to about 100 ex-servicemen,” he informs.Shortly before and during the observance of Remembrance Day, cans are normally distributed to collect funds in exchange for paper poppies. Colonel Lewis informs that the donation cans and poppies are placed in various stores, banks, and other places. Cadets are also on the streets with tins asking for donations.“We also send out letters to companies and the National Poppy Appeal has different fund raising sessions – band concerts, fish fry… whatever it is, different ways of raising money for the funds, and the aim usually is to try and get as much as would maintain the Curphey Home, which cost in the region of about $6 million or $7 million a year to maintain it,” he notes.Colonel Lewis informs that the Jamaica Legion gets a grant from the Government of about $650,000 a month to assist the ex-soldiers. The Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) and the British World Government League also provide support.For war veteran, Arthur (Roy) Knight, this gesture to improve the lives and recognise the contributions of ex-servicemen is significant, as during the wars, they faced injury and death every day, even while not on duty.Only 20 years old when he enlisted, the now 88 year-old former Right Lieutenant, who served in the Royal Air Force during World War II, tells JIS News that he risked his life to serve his country and to ensure a free world.“If Germany had won the war, we would be slaves. So I felt very well to have served. (Adolph) Hitler wasn’t a nice man you know? Hitler was a serious man; he wanted to conquer the world,” he asserts.There were about 4, 000 to 5,000 Jamaicans, who were involved in the wars. Many Jamaicans served in the Royal Air Force. Others joined the ground forces of the British army and the Canadian forces.The nation will celebrate Remembrance Day or Veterans’ Day (as it is referred to in the United States) on Sunday, November 10, with the annual Memorial Day ceremony at the War Memorial epitaph, National Heroes Park.The day is observed in Jamaica on the Sunday closest to the November 11 day, when the First World War came to an end.In addition to the national ceremony, which will feature cannon blasts and moments of silence for the veterans, Remembrance Day celebrations will be held island-wide. Members of the public are invited to attend any of these ceremonies at epitaphs in all parish capitals, which are organised by the custodes and parish councils.The National Heroes Park celebrations will include: uniformed groups parade and laying of floral tributes by the Governor-General, the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, the Chief Justice, Mayor of Kingston, JDF Chief of Defence Staff, Commissioner of Police, as well as several representatives from the diplomatic corps.The Commissioner of Corrections, Chairman of the Jamaica Legion and representatives of St. John Ambulance and the Royal Air Force, will also place floral tributes in memory for those who died in the war while serving the country.last_img read more
