Pearnel Charles Jr., commended the CSJP III and its partners for the transformative work. Forty-four youngsters who have been in conflict with the law have been given a second chance to turn their life around and make a positive contribution to society.Over the past two years, the youngsters have been engaged in a reintegration programme being undertaken by the Citizen Security and Justice Programme (CSJP) III in partnership with the Department of Correctional Services (DCS).Following assessment, the participants, who were referred by the DCS, received psychosocial services, vocational skills training in areas such as auto mechanics and general construction, remedial education, counselling and consistent monitoring and follow-up by CSJP case management officers.Ten additional persons are currently engaged in the programme.At a ceremony held at the Ministry of National Security’s Oxford Road offices on Monday (March 19) to celebrate the success of the beneficiaries, Portfolio State Minister, Senator the Hon. Pearnel Charles Jr., commended the CSJP III and its partners for the transformative work.“This is an opportunity for us to say to Jamaica, to those who are most vulnerable and at-risk, that those that some label as not deserving can become the best among us. They can become the next generation of champions to move our country forward,” he noted.He expressed the hope that the publicity around the programme will inspire confidence in those struggling to maintain a positive path in society.“To achieve greatness [in the country]…, we have to treat with crime and violence. We have to create an environment where people feel confident, where people can trust again, where people believe in themselves, in the process and in the system,” Senator Charles Jr. argued.He pointed out that the Ministry is working to ensure that rehabilitation and redemption are not just theoretical, but that efforts produce positive and tangible results “to show to our country that we are making a sustainable and real difference”.Senator Charles Jr. hailed the beneficiaries, who have worked to transform their attitudes and circumstances, and urged them to be ambassadors for the Ministry and the CSJP in their communities.“We expect you to walk and to talk and to conduct yourself in such a way that others looking on know that you have benefited from the CSJP programme and know that they too can change,” he added.The young people involved in the reintegration initiative also benefited from the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) Internship Programme, aimed at improving the employability and social skills of participants as well as the relationship between young men and the security forces.They are part of a wider pool of 2,319 youth from across 50 volatile communities across eight parishes, who have benefited from the case management services under CSJP III since January 2016.CSJP case managers and other service providers have reported significant improvement in the participants’ general outlook on life, productivity, sense of purpose and their problem-solving skills.The CSJP is funded by the Government of Jamaica; Inter-American Development Bank (IDB); Britain’s Department for International Development; and Global Affairs Canada formerly Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) of Canada.last_img read more

Rising Large Marine Losses Could Prove Too Much for Insurers

first_imgzoom The increasing number of large marine losses can potentially put severe financial strain and overwhelm insurance companies, Dieter Berg, President of the International Union of Marine Insurance (IUMI), said during the closing of this year’s IUMI 2016 marine insurance conference in Genova, Italy.Berg cited the recent losses connected with the Chilean earthquake in 2010, the Japanese earthquake and tsunami in 2011 (USD 3.8 billion loss), Thai floods in 2011 (USD 2.5 billion loss), Hurricane Sandy in 2012 (USD 3 billion loss) and the Tianjin explosion in 2015 (USD 3-4 billion loss expected).These marine losses were often coupled with associated major property losses, Berg said.“Our industry is concerned that natural catastrophes, due to climate change, are occurring more often and with greater severity,” Berg said.”Coupled with this, globalisation and the unrelenting growth of global trade is driving an increase in the value of goods being transported by sea and an increase in the quantity of goods being stored on ultra-large container ships, or in port terminals. These have the potential to create extremely large losses. Recent marine losses have been very expensive for insurers and often an accumulation of multiple business lines occur which can include cargo losses, container losses, warehouse damage, destruction of automobiles, damage to pleasure craft and even fine art losses. At Tianjin, for example, around 68,000 cars were affected, i.e. a total loss or damaged, by a single explosion.”Berg explained that when large marine losses were combined with property and other losses, there was a real concern that this might overwhelm insurance companies.He called on the industry to understand, clearly, their aggregate positions and to manage their exposures by carefully modelling their risk positions.last_img read more

Excuses have got to come to an end for Ohio States mens

Members of the Ohio State men’s hockey team know now is not the time to start letting doubt creep in, even after dropping its last three games. OSU only has one win in its last 10 games, a 3-1 victory at Ferris State on Jan. 11. The team has suffered a lot of injuries this season, something OSU coach Mark Osiecki said “drastically” hurts the team’s chemistry. “Our roster has been different every game because of it,” Osiecki said. “You don’t want to use that as an excuse at all, but it’s definitely affected it.” Despite the team’s recent struggles, Osiecki stressed the importance of the team consistently maintaining a positive attitude, even if its play has not been consistent. “They’ve got a great attitude,” Osiecki said. “They love coming to the rink. If (the Schottenstein Center) was open every day, they would be in here every day shooting pucks on the ice, using open ice. That’s the mentality.” It is that mentality of working hard every day that could help the Buckeyes toward closing out the season on a high note, said senior goalie Brady Hjelle. “All the cards are right there ready to go,” Hjelle said. “We are ready to go, we just got to stay positive and keep working hard every day.” Sophomore forward Max McCormick said he agreed with Hjelle and said staying positive is key. “We can’t get down on ourselves and hang our heads,” McCormick said. “We’ve got to have a good work ethic in practice and prepare for the weekend.” OSU is scheduled to host Lake Superior State (13-12-1, 8-9-1-1 CCHA) this weekend at the Schottenstein Center. The series against the Lakers begins a stretch where OSU will play eight of its next 10 games in Columbus. “It’ll be nice to be back home here,” Osiecki said. “At home you got a full roster and we gotta play with an attitude.” Junior defenseman Curtis Gedig also said he is happy to be at home and playing in front of the home crowd, something the team has not had the chance to experience since before Christmas. “I love the building, love the atmosphere,” Gedig said. “We don’t have to worry about catching up on school because we are traveling, so that is nice.” Osiecki said the team is closer to 100 percent health than it has been since the beginning of the season, adding that he is looking forward to getting some of the players back to “knock the rust off.” Even with the roster being nearly at full strength, he said his team does not have a lot of time to waste before the end of the regular season. “Guys have to get to game speed quickly,” Osiecki said. “There’s not enough time to sit around and ease into it.” Hjelle said winning games is a must for any team at this point in the season but is happy to have the majority of the remaining games at home, which he said helps with morale. “It’s always a good time to start winning a lot of games,” Hjelle said. “It’s definitely nice being at home. It’s going to be huge for us.” Osiecki said he and the rest of the coaching staff have not had to say much in practice to keep the team focused on what they need to do. “I think the sky is still the limit,” he said. “Our guys have the right attitude. Now it is just a matter of getting some sort of comfort and chemistry going.” Gedig agreed with Osiecki that the team just has to find a way to win. “The excuses have got to come to an end,” Gedig said. “We are so close, and I believe with this team we are good enough and it will come for us.” read more

Louisville Falls to No 3 North Carolina 8370 in ACC Quarterfinal

first_imgStory Links PDF Box Score Postgame Quotes Listen Live CBS Matchup History Postgame Notes Next Game: vs. Minnesota 3/21/2019 | center_img Preview CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Luke Maye had 19 points and nine rebounds, Coby White added 17 points, seven rebounds and six assists – and committed just one turnover – and North Carolina beat Louisville 83-70 on Thursday night in the Atlantic Coast Conference quarterfinals.”I’m trying to make the easy play,” White said. ”I’m trying not to force it.”White’s controlled play has the second-seeded Tar Heels in line for a run at their second ACC Tournament championship in four years and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.”I get on him about his shots and I get on him about his turnovers,” Williams said. ”But he is making much better decisions. It’s attack, attack, attack. That’s what we talk about all the time. We want to attack like crazy and be under control.”Maye was stellar as he has been for most of his career with the Tar Heels, taking over on the glass in the second half and scoring from all three levels on offense – attacking the basket, knocking down mid-range jumpers and stroking 3-pointers.Cameron Johnson chipped in with 14 points – all in the first half – to help the Tar Heels (27-5) extend their winning streak to eight games.Dwayne Sutton had 14 points for Louisville (20-13).The Cardinals beat North Carolina by 19 on Jan. 12 in Chapel Hill – Williams’ worst home loss ever as Tar Heels coach – using their size and length to disrupt shooters and control the glass.North Carolina had no trouble in the rubber match between the teams.The Tar Heels built a 45-35 lead at the half behind Johnson and White, who got the basket with ease. But the lead hovered around 10 for most of the second half until the Tar Heels got their transition game going with eight straight points on run outs – including four by Kenny Williams – to stretch the lead to 18 with 6:24 left.Louisville coach Chris Mack called North Carolina’s transition game ”phenomenal.””They are as fast as any team I’ve coached against,” Mack said. ”And you talk about it, you talk about it, but talking doesn’t prepare you sometimes. And you give those guys credit, they were shot out of a cannon, that ball was up the floor and in such a hurry and got to the rim.”AVENGING LOSSMaye, who grew up in the Charlotte suburb of Huntersville, was excited to get a win in his return home especially after the Tar Heels lost here in the second round of the NCAA Tournament to Texas A&M.”I love coming back to Charlotte and this was a big win for us,” Maye said.WELL PREPAREDMack believes the Cardinals are well prepared for the NCAA Tournament after competing in the ACC with three teams ranked in the top five in the country.”I told these guys in the locker room that we have played the best teams in the country,” Mack said. ”I mean there’s a reason that y’all are talking about a possibility, not saying it’s going to happen, a possibility of three No. 1 seeds. That’s incredible. … It’s the best conference in the country, in my opinion.”BIG PICTURELouisville: Despite the loss, the Cardinals appear to have a good chance to get an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament as a 20-win team in a tough conference.North Carolina: The Tar Heels arrived in Charlotte chasing a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and if they continue to play like this over the next two days they’ll be a lock to get one.UP NEXTLouisville: Will await word on an NCAA Tournament bid.North Carolina: Will face the winner Duke-Syracuse winner in the semifinals Friday night.
