Increased Demand for Sports Massage Therapy Programme at G.C. Foster College

first_img There is also strong interest in the coaching programmes Story Highlights G.C. Foster College reports “overwhelming” support for its two-year diploma programme in sports massage therapy Graduates of the programme have been finding employment in the sport, recreational and hospitality sectors The G.C. Foster College of Physical Education and Sport in Spanish Town, St. Catherine, is reporting “overwhelming” support for its two-year diploma programme in sports massage therapy.Principal of the institution, Edward Shakes, said there has been high demand for admittance to the programme, which was introduced to deal with the rising incidence of sports-related injuries.“In fact, there are more persons than we can accommodate for that programme,” Mr. Shakes told JIS News.He attributed the increased interest to the publicity that emanated from the trained masseuses accompanying the Jamaican delegation to the London 2012 Olympics and the recent IAAF World Athletics Championships in Moscow. Those masseuses graduated from the sports massage programme, which has been offered at GC Foster since 2004.Additionally, Mr. Shakes said that graduates of the programme have been finding employment in the sport, recreational and hospitality sectors as massage therapists, resulting in the increased demand for the programme.He said that persons wishing to enroll in the programme should have at least four Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) passes. Persons without the required CXC qualifications can still be accepted based on their years of experience in the profession.Mr. Shakes said the college is making every effort to remain significant and relevant and “is looking for the many opportunities that may evolve.”He said that there is also strong interest in the coaching programmes, which have been training and providing qualified coaches, teachers and officials for various sports since 2004.In her contribution to the recent sectoral debate in Parliament, Minister without Portfolio with responsibility for Sport, Hon. Natalie Neita Headley, lauded the work of the G. C. Foster College-trained coaches.“There is no doubt in my mind, and in the minds of many Jamaicans, that our sporting success is as a result of the solid training of the physical education teachers and coaches that are deployed into our high schools,” she stated, adding that over 90 per cent of all coaches in Jamaica have been trained at G. C. Foster College.last_img read more

Precious Shipping Poised to Offload Outdated Handys

first_imgzoom Thailand-based Precious Shipping Ltd plans to rejuvenate its dry bulk fleet by scrapping its outdated Handysizes or by adding more fuel efficient ships.The company’s Managing Director Khalid M. Hashim, told Platts on the sidelines of the Sea Asia global shipping conference in Singapore, that the company will either be “selling or scrapping some of our older ships, most likely towards the end of this year.”The proceeds would most likely be used for expanding of the Ultramax fleet, which are more economic in terms of fuel consumption.According to Hashim, Precious Shipping has 22 Ultramaxes already on order.“It’s a question of survival over the next few years and to do this companies need to take action now to drive down costs and improve efficiencies.”“They need to scrap, get rid of any non-core assets and raise finance to survive the current challenges that the industry is facing,” Hashim said while Speaking at today’s opening of Sea Asia 2015.Overcapacity is one of the short-term challenges which is being compounded by softening demand in key markets, added Hashim.“China’s steel production was flat last year while demand for coal dropped 40 per cent. These trends are bad news for the dry bulk shipping market which transports these key commodities.”Minister for Transport and Second Minister for Defence Mr Lui Tuck YewSpeaking at the opening ceremony, Singapore’s Minister for Transport and Second Minister for Defence, Mr Lui Tuck Yew said Asia is fast becoming the engine of global growth and that the maritime industry needs to be prepared.“All signs suggest that Asia will drive global shipping in the coming years. Shipping patterns have shifted and will continue to move towards Asia. In 2014, Asia accounted for almost 80 per cent of global container throughput,” he said.Experts on the panel of the Sea Asia Global Forum agreed with Mr Lui and commented that growing economies present exciting opportunities for shipping and the broader maritime sector, particularly in Asia.However, they added that with a number of challenges on the horizon, companies must operate as efficiently as they can to survive.“The shipping industry is facing some short term pressure which means one has to be as efficient as they can.“It’s not just about the size, it’s also about how you well you run your services with most efficient ships using technology and IT,” Managing Director, Pacific International Lines, Mr S.S. Teo said.last_img read more

JERA EDF Trading Join Forces in LNG Optimisation

first_imgJapan’s energy company JERA and EDF Trading Limited have signed binding agreements to form an LNG optimisation and trading joint venture to merge their activities into JERA Trading (JERAT).With demand for LNG in Japan becoming increasingly variable and difficult to predict and the ramp up in US LNG liquefaction, Europe has become a key balancing market for excess global LNG. As a result, JERA and EDFT believe that there is significant room for optimising LNG on a global basis, establishing a more liquid market, and, over time, developing a clear pricing signal for LNG in Asia.The companies will combine their LNG optimisation and trading activities into JERAT which will become the exclusive LNG optimiser for JERA and EDF S.A., managing their collective short and medium term LNG optimisation activity.Recognising the expansion of JERAT’s business globally, the parties agreed to change the name of JERA Trading to “JERA Global Markets”.“LNG remains a strategically important fuel for JERA and EDF and this agreement will bring more flexibility and scale to both partners without affecting JERA’s and EDF’s long term procurement activities,” according to JERA.As part of this transaction, EDF Trading North America, one of the leading marketers of gas and power in the region will be responsible for supplying electricity and natural gas to meet JERA’s capacity requirements at the Freeport liquefaction terminal.This transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals and is expected to be completed by early 2019.This joint venture follows the completion of the acquisition of EDFT’s coal business by JERAT on April 4, 2017.last_img read more

Moroccan Authorities Arrest Sexual Assault Perpetrator

Rabat – Following the release of a sexual assault video on Tuesday that caused a public uproar on social media, Moroccan security forces arrested a 21-year old suspect on Wednesday in Benguerir–a city located in the Rehamna province in central Morocco. The suspect was allegedly involved in violently assaulting a young girl.The incident occured back in January, and the identity of the victim has now been identified.Yesterday, Morocco’s General Directorate for National Security opened an investigation, seeking to identify the suspect involved in the assault. In a statement, the DGSN urged all law enforcement to identify the identity of perpetrator who violently attempted to undress the victim, while  touching her inappropriately. The girl is heard begging and crying for help in the video, while a second aggressor stands laughing while filming the scene.Public UproarThe 55-second video has stirred backlash and concern among Moroccan citizens on social media. A hashtag is now being used to decry the incident. The hashtag “#Wash_Maandakch_Khtek” (translation: “Don’t you have a sister?”) echoes the young woman’s pleas, heard in the video as she tries stop her abuser.As awareness of the incident spreads, a Twitter user urged authorities to come up with a solution to end similar occurrences in Morocco: “We need a solution…six months in prison is not enough.”Others urged the government to apply the death penalty in rape cases.I’m so done with my country ??#???_???????_???— Asmaa Ait lahcen (@SimaVu) March 27, 2018As awareness of the incident spread, a twitter user urged authorities to come up with a solution to help end similar occurrences in Morocco. “We need a solution…six months in the prison is not enough.”#???_???????_???#???_???????_????????? ????.. ??? ???? ??? ????? ????? ??? ??????.— ??? ????? ?????? (@aabdpres) March 27, 2018“Please don’t you tell me that you are against death penalty anymore,” wrote another.Ne dites plus s’il vous plait que vous êtes contre la peine de mort #???_???????_???— Rim Kaanane (@RimKaanane) March 27, 2018The investigation of the incident falls just one month after Morocco’s new law against harassment and gender-based violence was enacted on February 14.Bouchra Abdou,  an activist, feminist, and director of Tahadi Center,  told Morocco World News that the new law is not “really enough.” She added that there should be a better security approach for dealing with assaults  in public spaces, adding that “authorities need to push up their sleeves and do something concrete about assault incidents and their perpetrators.” Abdou added that the Ministry of Education also needs to offer students awareness campaigns to educate them about the dangers of assault and harassment.In November, The Tahadi Association launched a campaign on both social media and in public spaces platforms to prevent sexual harassment on public transportation in Casablanca. The campaign was a response to a previous assault on a public Casablanca bus last August.Seven months ago, graphic footage was released of a group of teenagers violently assaulting a mentally ill-girl on a bus in Casablanca.The incident resulted in public protests in Morocco’s major cities, including Rabat and Casablanca, to denounce the lack of public safety. read more

Hungary champions rights of minorities during address to General Assembly

Speaking on the fifth day of the Assembly’s annual high-level segment, Péter Balázs said it was time for the international community to pay special attention to respect for minority rights, particularly at the upcoming meeting in November in Geneva of the second Minority Forum.“The presence of flourishing minority communities does not weaken a State, but rather makes it stronger,” Mr. Balázs said. “Trust between the majority and minority within a country can be built on this basis.”He noted that extreme nationalist, racist, anti-Semitic and xenophobic movements and sentiments have re-emerged or become stronger since the global economic crisis began.“We are witnessing alarming tendencies with a detrimental effect on the political participation, cultural life and educational opportunities of minorities… We cannot allow those alarming trends to prevail or roll back the advance of democratic values and human rights.”Mr. Balázs stressed the need to preserve the cultural and linguistic identities of national minorities and the upholding of their human rights in general.In his address the Foreign Minister also discussed the concept of “responsibility to protect,” the principle that requires governments to protect their citizens against genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.“We strongly believe that there is a clear and urgent need for further institution-building in the field of the prevention of genocide and mass atrocities.“That is the reason why Hungary prepared this year a feasibility study on the establishment of the Budapest Centre for the International Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities. Such a centre could stimulate worldwide cooperative efforts in the next few years to establish a well-functioning system for the prevention of genocide and mass atrocities, through a dynamic and systematic approach of early action mechanisms.” 28 September 2009Vibrant minority groups strengthen countries rather than undermine them, Hungary’s Foreign Minister told the General Assembly today as he warned of “alarming tendencies” to curtail the political, cultural and educational opportunities worldwide in the wake of the financial crisis. read more
