Occupational Safety and Health Act to be Tabled This Year Health & WellnessJune 5, 2013 RelatedWestmoreland Community Welcomes Overseas Dental Mission FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Derrick Kellier, has reiterated the Ministry’s commitment to have the proposed Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) tabled this legislative year.Making his contribution to the 2013/14 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on June 4, the Minister informed that the most recent draft of the legislation was received by the Ministry in January 2013, and was reviewed by the Attorney General’s Chambers, which necessitated further redrafts.“After this process is complete, the Ministry’s intention is to table the Bill within this legislative year and I urge all my fellow members in this House to lend their support to its speedy passage at the appropriate time,” Mr. Kellier said.Meanwhile, the Labour Minister said that the safety and health of all employees in the Jamaican workplace must be given priority, if the country is to achieve the high levels of productivity and performance necessary to put it on a path of sustained growth.“Over the years, there have been various workplace incidences leading to injuries and fatalities which impacted negatively on both employers and employees. For example, recently there has been an upturn in the number of buildings found to contain asbestos in their structural materials. As such, the need for the long awaited Occupational Safety and Health legislation is again brought into sharp focus,” Mr. Kellier said.The Bill will set the groundwork for the implementation of protection for all workers in all spheres of economic activities, and will comprehensively address all manifestations of occupational hazards.It covers a broader range of considerations than the present Factories Act to protect workers on the job and define working conditions. It also establishes a joint Health and Safety Council that monitors the safety and well-being of workers.Contact: Latonya Linton RelatedMinistry of Health Establishes International Cooperation Unit RelatedDr. Ferguson Appeals for Continued External Support for HIV/AIDS Programme Advertisements
PSC Golf from The Growling SwanMonday, August 22, Mt. Shadow – StablefordWell we cater for the big crowds and we cater for the small crowds, only 10 golfers today but it makes no difference to us as it is all the same and the competition is still strong!Maurice Roberts (left) with Alan Sanders.Playing from the blue tees the scores were not quite up to standard and having the fairways mowed but the clippings being left made it a little difficult to find ones ball. Many players complained that lost balls appeared to be the order of the day – the next group to play Mt. Shadow will benefit with balls being offered up for sale. A good course to play but I think that they are going to find it difficult to compete with some of the better courses offering super prices. I think that they need to pull their socks up and start looking as to what is being offered.Glenn Henriksen.On a day when the scorers were never in danger, Glenn Henriksen (on the eve of departing) took the honors from The Colonel (Alan Sanders), making sure that the podium is the place to stand on his first outing this trip.1st Glenn Henriksen (11) 33pts2nd Alan Sanders (24) 32pts3rd Alex Field (17) 31ptsNear Pins: Ebrahim (5), Glenn Henriksen (7), Martin Todd (15), Martin Todd (17)Thursday, August 25, Pattavia – Monthly MugTwenty nine punters gathered in Soi Chaiyapoon eager to take advantage of the great offer put on by Pattavia G.C.To say the day was warm was an understatement, little or no breeze made it even more uncomfortable. The course was in good nick, with the greens playing the way they normally do but I must admit they are starting to look tired and sometimes playing that way.Playing from the white tees we played two divisions and being monthly mug day we were playing stroke (this sorting the men from the boys).A Flight gave us our mug winner, Maurice Roberts, with a very tidy net 67. Second in that division was Mike Johns while Denis Steele and ‘The Coach’ Mike Gosden filled the other spots.B Flight saw Alan ‘The Colonel’ Sanders with a good score of net 68 to give him 1st place and only 1 shot away from The Monthly Mug. Second in the flight was Rona Carungay, who is playing some good golf at the moment, with Andrew Allen and Bernie McCart filling 3rd & 4th.A Grade (0–17)1st Maurice Roberts (15) net 672nd Mike Johns (14) net 693rd Denis Steele (12) net 704th Mike Gosden (17) net 71B Grade (18+)1st Alan Sanders (24) net 682nd Rona Carungay (23) net 703rd Andrew Allen (29) net 744th Bernie McCart (31) net 77Near Pins: 4th Steve Younger, 7th Mike Johns, 13th Maurice Roberts, 17th Sal BrizziLong Putts: 9th Mike Johns, 18th Gerri Crilly.Note: The GS is a friendly golf outlet and caters for and encourages all golfers male and female to have a hit at any of our weekly outings. We generally play Mondays and Thursdays at one of the many fine golf courses in and around Pattaya.

The cost including return bus transport, bowling fees and a hot lunch is less than 400 baht so great value for a day out.
Sport have already reported that Chelsea want Luis Enrique to head up their project. Although the Blues wanted him immediately, Lucho prefers to start with a club in the summer and create entirely his own project. PSG want a coach with a winning mentality. And Zidane can do that, having won the Champions League twice in a row. Luis Enrique also won 9 out of 14 possible titles while at Barca. 22/02/2018 CHELSEA OFFER @albert_masnou Real Madird beat PSG 3-1 in the last 16 first leg this year and seem poised to knock out the French yet again. CET El PSG se suma a la puja por Luis Enrique Upd. at 11:55 IN SPORT.ES In Alves’ case, Lucho always backed his renewal with the club and publicly lamented his departure to Juventus. Albert Masnou Lucho will have to make his mind up in the coming weeks. London or Paris? Chelsea or PSG? In any case, two very interesting options. Sport contributor Emilio Perez already hinted in an article in El Periodico de Catalunya that Luis Enrique was photographed on a Qatar Airways flight to Doha, where PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi lives. The final decision will have something to do with PSG’s dressing room heavyweights’ opinion. Neymar and Dani Alves have worked under Lucho at Barca, and had a decent relationship although Ney fell out with Juan Carlos Unzue, then Lucho’s No 2. PSG have joined Chelsea on the list of clubs that want Luis Enrique to be their next coach, as they plan to sack Unai Emery at the end of the season. The reality is that PSG want a coach who can take them to Champions League glory. Last season Lucho’s Barca humbled the French 6-1, overcoming a 4-0 first leg defeat. Zinedine Zidane is another target, if the Frenchman does not stay at Real Madrid. Conversations with Zidane have taken place but he has not made up his mind about his Madrid future.

A suspected shoplifter who police say hit an officer with his car while fleeing from a Coconut Creek, Florida, Walmart last month has been arrested. Avonta Lamar Bailey, 30, was arrested Saturday in Dania Beach on charges including aggravated battery on an officer, grand theft, eluding a police officer, leaving the scene of a crash involving property damage and resisting arrest with violence in the June 29 incident, Coconut Creek Police officials said Monday.Officials said the officer was working an extra duty detail at the Walmart in the 5500 block of West Hillsboro Road when loss prevention associates alerted the officer that a suspected shoplifter left the store with two stolen computers. The officer tried to speak with the suspect, who was putting the items in his car, when the man put his car in reverse and hit the officer with his open driver’s side door, officials said.The impact knocked the officer to the ground and the officer had to roll out of the way to avoid being hit by the car as the suspect fled. The officer was taken to a nearby hospital and later released, and was not seriously injured. Bailey remained behind bars on $47,000 bond Monday, jail records showed. Attorney information wasn’t available.

Chaney also has offers from Baylor, TCU, Wichita State and OSU. If you’re thinking the schools, geographically, are a little weird, it’s because Chaney recently played for Frisco Liberty in Texas before transferring to Findlay Prep in Nevada last July.Findlay Prep has been an NBA talent producing factory over the years, with Avery Bradley, Anthony Bennett, Cory Joseph and Tristan Thompson claiming Findlay as their alma mater since its origination in 2006.Three teammates offered over the weekendTrinity Christian School prospect Joey Baker of Fayetteville, North Carolina, reported a scholarship offer from OSU this week. Baker is a top-25 national prospect in the 2019 recruiting class with close to 20 offers who is considered a North Carolina Tar Heels lean — although his in-state school has yet to pull the trigger on him yet. Baker is an uber-athletic combo forward who can score it and play around the rim.He’s averaging 16 points per game on the Under Armour Circuit and has emerged as his teams go-to scorer for Team Felton. Two of his other Team Felton teammates were also offered over the weekend.Mike Boynton has offered 2020 wing Silas Mason, 2019 guard Joey Baker and 2018 big man Immanuel Bates. All three @TeamFeltonBBall products.— Kyle Boone (@PFBoone) May 8, 2017Immanuel Bates is a 6-foot-9 power forward with 15 offers from the likes of UConn, Georgia Tech, Georgia, Cincy and others. Silas Mason, meanwhile, is an up-and-coming 2020 prospect whose first Power 5 offer is from the Cowboys. Watson is a 6-foot-6 small forward who has the frame and the talent to be a legit Division I player, and it seems OSU is looking to get ahead of that train.Here’s a little scouting of Watson from Phenom Hoop Report, who hosted him for an event last April.“Marcus Watson for CP3 was the true heart and soul of this team. He always came through when his number was called on offense, and was a top tier defender at multiple positions. Blessed with great length and size, Watson could play as a big guard, ideal wing, or even as a stretch big in the right circumstances. Range was excellent extending out past the three-point line; showed great intelligence at all times, really a do-it-all type of player.” [Phenom Hoop Report]2018 big man Reggie Chaney offered scholarshipFindlay Prep big man Reggie Chaney is another hoops target to emerge this week on the radar of Mike Boynton and his staff. Chaney is a 6-foot-7 prospect—typically the size you see in a small forward, especially in the Big 12—but he’s classified as both a power forward and center at recruiting service websites. The Reload is PFB’s recruiting recap, catching you up to speed on the latest news and rumors regarding Oklahoma State recruiting.Grant Gunnell calls OSU ‘best visit’The premier quarterback in the 2019 class, Grant Gunnell, has already garnered 25 offers from the likes of OSU, Texas A&M, Florida State, LSU and others. And to this point in his recruitment, his unofficial visit to Stillwater is the one that stands out to him thanks to the efforts of offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich.“They’re the first guys to jump on with me to be the first offer,” Gunnell told Scout of Oklahoma State. “That’s really special to be their first offer. Coach (Mike) Yurich is really awesome. That’s probably the most special visit I took. He put together a video of me in their offense with the same exact plays of me throughout the years. It was probably the best visit.”Gunnell is ranked nationally as the 54th best overall prospect in the 2019 class and the No. 2 ranked quarterback in the country, closing in on 5-star status. He says he’ll likely release a list of his top schools later this spring. Oklahoma State will be on the list but, as he broke down in the Scout story, he’s weighing options between landing with an air raid system or a pro-style system.“They both have their pros and cons,” he said of both systems. “I think it’s just that. You have to look at how the coach fits well with me and how I want to be coached, the head coach stability and stuff like that.”2019 SF Marcus Watson offered scholarshipA quick description for Watson in one word: under-recruited.

Let’s take a look at some news from around the league over the last week or two.Take A Chill PillCommissioner Bob Bowlsby says to not worry about the Big 12 not being a playoff fixture over its first three years.“That’s a really short window,” Bowlsby said. “It get a little tiresome, because I know we play at a very high level, and I know that, top to bottom, we’re the best in the country in terms of balance. And I know that the method by which we conduct our championships and conduct our regular season is the most difficult.” [ESPN]AdChoices广告To Bowlsby’s point, the Big 12 is really close to three for three (getting in):And the Big 12 hasn’t played well in big non-conference games. Last season, OU probably would have made the playoff had it beaten either Houston or Ohio State; instead, the Sooners lost both. In 2014, Baylor probably would have made the playoff had it played a representative non-conference schedule; instead, the Bears played SMU, Northwestern State of Louisiana and Buffalo, and the playoff committee elevated Ohio State past Baylor. [NewsOK]Which leads us to the last piece, just win.We’ve debated for years the Big 12’s value. That debate needs to end. Ask not what your conference can do for you, ask what you can do for your conference. And the answer is, OU can beat Ohio State. West Virginia can beat Virginia Tech. OSU can beat Pittsburgh. TCU can beat Arkansas. Texas can beat Southern Cal (well, you know what I mean). And if a team makes the playoff, win once it gets there. [NewsOK]Buy Low on BillPick the K-State Wildcats to finish in the middle of the pack at your own peril.His Wildcats have returned a full-time starting quarterback six times in the past 20 years. In those six seasons, his teams have won 11 games five times and nine on one occasion. He won 11 games with Michael Bishop in 1998, 11 in 2000 with Jonathan Beasley, 11 in 2002 and ’03 with Ell Roberson and 11 in 2012 with Collin Klein. The latter two included Big 12 titles and BCS bowl bids, too. In 2014, Snyder won nine games with Jake Waters. Add it up and you’ll find that Snyder’s teams have gone 64-17 since 1998 when returning a full-time starting quarterback. [SportsOnEarth]Given health concerns and age, you could see the Wildcats striving to send a legend out on top.”You could make a great case for Bill Snyder being 1 of the 10 best college coaches of all-time” – @JBradEdwards— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) July 24, 2017 While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Keeping Up with the JonesBerry Tramel made the trip to West Virginia and was surprised by what he found.What is the most fascinating or interesting information you learned about West Virginia’s athletics department during your recent visit?How West Virginia is really not in the arms race. The Mountaineers have solid facilities and are constantly upgrading, but they’re not trying to build the palaces you see in Lubbock and Stillwater and Waco and Norman and Fort Worth and Austin. WVU is not recruiting against Texas A&M and Alabama. WVU is largely recruiting against Pitt and Maryland and the like. [NewsOK]West Virginia’s isolation must really put them in a different place from a recruiting perspective. Looking at their classes, Ohio River Valley and Florida are honey holes they dip into and the expectations must be different for the football-rich Texas players the rest live off of.In defense of the Mountaineers, they are trying.The new video board is coming along nicely at Milan Puskar Stadium.

Yep.A funky gray suit and brownish tie combo that few coaches could pull off? You bet.A relaxed attitude? Definitely. [SportsDay]Kingsbury is probably under more pressure (to save his job) than any Big 12 coach. He cites a third-year defensive coordinator and convincing his team to be confident as his motives in being cool. But have we ever really seen a hot seat coach behaving neurotically?He is comfortable talking about some things.Texas Tech HC Kliff Kingsbury’s still got it ? @TTUKingsbury @TexasTechFB pic.twitter.com/B1ELOTD1Qf— The Will Cain Show (@WillCainShow) July 20, 2017

It was only to be expected that it would be difficult, but we certainly made it easier for them in the first half.”We were not aggressive or physical enough, and we did not apply what we had spoken about doing beforehand. That was not the kind of professional game that you have to play on such occasions.”We were better in the second half, and the substitutions worked well above anything else. I am really pleased for Schmelzer that he got the goal at the end, as he is our captain and had been out injured.”Marco Reus showed what good he does for our game when coming off the bench. We had talked to him in recent weeks and wanted to be careful to avoid a relapse.”We have the right attitude, and the boys have demonstrated that a number of times. Of course, I’m pleased that we are through to the next round, but we have also got a lot to talk about after this match.” Europapokaaaaaaaaal!

Nemanja Matić Matic insists Manchester United can still do ‘big things’ Nicholas McGee 22:37 24/2/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Manchester United Manchester United v Chelsea Premier League The midfielder still sees big things ahead for the Red Devils, despite Manchester City’s dominance of the Premier League Midfielder Nemanja Matic is confident Manchester United can do “big things” despite the Premier League title looking beyond them this season.United go into Sunday’s home top-flight meeting with Matic’s former club Chelsea trailing neighbours and runaway leaders Manchester City by 16 points.That gap can be trimmed to 13 with victory at Old Trafford on the same day City face Arsenal in the Carabao Cup final.

I’m sure we can do something this season and in the future for sure.”We have to be honest and say we have had some very good games, but we have also had some bad games. We have to improve together. We have the Champions League and the FA Cup still to play for.”To win the league is going to be very hard as we know because the gap is very big, but we have to fight until the end and we will see what we can do.”A victory for the Red Devils would see them go six points over fourth place Chelsea. However, a defeat would see the Blues draw level on points with them.
