Angus RelatedTwo New Cases of Chikungunya Advertisements The public health system has received a boost to its stock of Intravenous Fluids (IV), with a donation valued at $1.75 million from local charity Food For the Poor (FFP).The items were handed over to Minister of Health, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson on August 13, at FFP’s offices in Spanish Town, St. Catherine.The donation came weeks after reports of a worldwide shortage of the fluids at which time, FFP’s Florida office sourced a batch from European suppliers as a gift to the people of Jamaica.Minister Ferguson noted that although the health facilities did not run out of the fluids, the National Health Fund (NHF) “worked proactively …so that patients would not be affected, and we managed the system across several hospitals to ensure that they all had stocks at all point in time”.He said that within a short time after hearing about the shortage, FFP contacted the Ministry and indicated that they would provide support of sourcing the fluids for the health sector.“We are thankful to have you as a partner in health that we can count on. This will go a far way in adding to our present resources, and I acknowledge the support of Food for the Poor Inc., located in Florida,” he stated.Minister Ferguson informed that in 2013, FFP donated 86 containers of medical items to the health sector with a value of some $3.4 billion, which included pharmaceuticals, suction machines, nebulizers, and blood pressure machines, medical supplies such as gauze, syringes, needles, furniture, wheelchairs and stretchers.“I have very deep admiration for the agency for its continued assistance, especially its focus on vulnerable areas and groups. We appreciate these partnerships and welcome others, who may be able to work with us. The development of public/private partnerships to move Jamaica forward is a tenet of our National Development Plan, as well as this Administration’s Manifesto,” Dr. Ferguson said.IV fluids are critical to saving lives during an emergency. They are used for moderate to severe cases of dehydration, during invasive operations, among other things. RelatedFour Additional Locally Transmitted Cases of Chikungunya Confirmed
Selected months in advance, the venue for Monday night’s championship game (do you think the stars are aligned?) happens to be Indianapolis, giving the Bulldogs, who were 16-0 at home this year, home-field advantage. A win against No. 1 seed Duke could send the city into delirium.

The Butler Bulldogs, whose odds of winning the NCAA Tournament were 200-to-1, will be the smallest school in 40 years to play for the national title. Brad Stevens, Butler’s boyish coach of 33, is only three years into his coaching career. In contrast, his rival in the final against Duke is going for his fourth national title, having coached his first game when Stevens was just 3 years old.
The Lancer Dancers performing their jazz routine at NDA Nationals last month.Northeast Johnson County residents tonight will have a chance to see for themselves the innovative dance routine that caused something of a stir at the National Dance Alliance’s high school championships last month.The Lancer Dancers’ Spring Show comes to the Shawnee Mission East auditorium at 7 p.m. tonight, and will feature the hip-hop routine that the team performed at the competition in Orlando.Coach Alexis “Bubba” Close said the team had decided to try something different early in the season this year after learning that the dance competitions would be adhering strictly to music copyright rules that would prevent the team from editing together different pieces of music and playing with their speeds. Instead, the group came up with the idea of developing a routine that would be set to the sounds of the SM East drumline performing live.“It was quite an involved process,” Close said.Indeed, unlike other dance teams, which have their routines choreographed to recorded soundtracks, the SM East team worked hand in hand with a select group of drummers to develop a routine in which both the music and the dance were performed live.In the preliminary round at the NDA championships, the Lancers walked away with a commanding lead over the field. The judges’ critiques after the preliminary round were widely positive, and indicated no specific issues with the movements of the drumline.Still, Close told her team it was “no time to be complacent.” They hit the stage in the finals focused and ready to go. And by Close’s account, her team nailed it.“It was even better than the day before,” she said.But when the judges’ results came back, the scores were fully three-tenths of a point lower than in prelims, enough to knock them down from first to third place overall. Close was gobsmacked. When she went to check the judges’ notes after the finals performance, she was surprised to find several pointed comments about the drumline choreography.“It was basically a 180 from the day before,” she said. After asking around, she learned that the judges had a meeting the previous night. She suspects they changed their mind about how they were judging the drumline portion of the performance.“I think it’s very fishy,” she said. “We didn’t get any notes about the drumline after prelims, so we had no opportunity to make any changes. We would have been happy — and had time — to rework some of what the drumline was doing if we’d known.”The team was completely caught off guard by the results. Based on their execution of the routine, they had high hopes of taking the hip-hop title, which would have been a first in school history. Instead, they had to settle for third — still the Lancers best showing in the category.“It was probably one of the hardest coaching moments of my life,” Close said.Here’s a video of the team watching its performance:
September 15, 2013 Letters September 15, 2013 Letters Letters Citizenship Is Not the Issue As an attorney who applied to The Florida Bar without either citizenship or permanent residency, I strongly support that citizenship should not factor in Bar admissions.The proposed amendment to Bar Rule 1-3.1 to provide, “No person who has complied with the requirements for admission to The Florida Bar shall be disqualified because he or she is not a United States citizen” remains reasonable and appropriate.But the issue of undocumented or out-of-status applicants is an appropriate factor in meeting the requirements for admission to The Florida Bar.While there is great sympathy for many who find themselves — often through no fault of their own — in the United States illegally, this is a continuing criminal act that is incompatible with being admitted to The Florida Bar. Currently, the Bar application requires a photocopy of “the immigration document that documents your status for submission to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for verification of authenticity” for all non-U.S. citizens. This is an appropriate and sufficient check.The federal government often puts huge obstacles to achieving legal status in this country: Once a person has achieved that legal status, it would be appropriate to recognize and defer to their findings, but until the applicant has achieved such status the Department of Justice is correct in suggesting that they should be disqualified.There is much reform that should be undertaken in immigration law in which our Bar members can participate. As lawyers, let us not flout the law but change the law. The new Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is a small, but important, step in that direction.Phil Wigglesworth San Miguel de Allende, Mexico Bradley Manning I’m Bradley Manning.Come arrest and prosecute me as well, because I fully support everything he did.I pray those who have prosecuted and judged Bradley Manning will eventually stand trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity at the Hague, and will hopefully hang no different than the Nuremberg Nazis.David F. Petrano Hawthorne Public Defenders These last months have seen the rather heavy news coverage of the Zimmerman case in Seminole County.At its peak core are the defense attorneys O’Mara and West. During the trial and its ultimate verdict, they were rather celebrated as almost folk heroes and kudos of brilliant lawyers. They were and are, in my personal opinion, very effective trial lawyers.However, after the verdict came in, in their first statements to the press is where I feel bound to stand up for the lowly public defenders of the world. that, I mean the negative comments they made about the state erroneously seeking to obstruct them in obtaining discovery by employing means like they would often get away with when public defenders were representing the defendants.On behalf of old public defenders, I would like to set the record straight and not let their comment go uncontested.As a public defender in the ’70s and ’80s in the 18th Circuit, I tried an abundance of first degree murders and, yes, many second degree murders, as attorneys O’Mara and West successfully had with defendant Zimmerman.Speaking of quality and effectiveness of their defense as a public defender, I would like to draw attention to 1977. As the week of May 16 started in Sanford, I started that week with two cases of second degree murder.The first murder case that week ended on Tuesday, May 17, when the Sanford jury brought in a verdict of not guilty. On Wednesday, May 18, I started the second murder case. On Thursday evening, a second Sanford jury brought in the second not guilty and was the story that appeared in the Sanford Herald. I must admit that those two wins so close together almost made me believe what my mother said about me was true. She always said I was the “greatest trial lawyer.” I was a public defender on both of these cases and probably made about $36 a day.As for the discovery, I never asked for any. My file consisted of about five or six pages. Mv domicile was always in Brevard County. I traveled to Sanford on a regular basis in those days long ago.The Zimmerman attorneys took two weeks to try and acquit their innocent client. I took one week to try and acquit two guilty defendants.With the volume of homicide cases I tried in those days, I had a simple technique: I always looked for and found a butler to hang it on. That trick I learned from watching old Charlie Chan movies.I can assure you that the state will always supply you one, with their tendencies to over witness a case.Back then, there were veteran and very able defense lawyers. Guys like “Big Peg Leg” John McCarey, Frank Clark, Wendell Harris, David Porter, and Thurman Justice. They have long since passed on, and when they did, I felt the courthouse was no longer quite as safe as when Ole Big John and his like roamed the corridors.Franklin D. Kelly Titusville

But while the networking was in full flight there was also a serious undercurrent to my week, as delegates digested the consequences of a strong property market.My week started with a London Chamber of Commerce & Industry (LCCI) dinner where we started a four-day series of events designed to highlight crucial issues affecting us all.This agenda continued on Wednesday lunchtime at LCCI president Tony Pidgley’s MIPIM lunch for 80 guests. Luminaries like Nick Candy, Capital & Counties managing director and chief investment officer Gary Yardley and Dalian Wanda general manager Laurent Fischler were among the guests debating how to solve London’s housing shortage.We are clear that property needs a cohesive and clear voice to government at this crucial time, with the economic impact of a housing under-supply becoming increasingly profound.According to LCCI research, average London house prices have increased fourfold since the late 1960s and are now more than twice the national average, growing at a much faster rate than wages.As the deputy chairman of the LCCI’s property & construction group, I fully endorse its recommendation that the mayor of London should set a trigger mechanism whereby ownership of publicly-owned brownfield land is transferred to private firms for development as housing.I also subscribe to the view that the mayor should work with local authorities to increase density around transport hubs.While the likes of Tony Pidgley and his Berkeley Group are crucial to the expansion of London’s housing supply, we should also not forget the crucial role that smaller developers can play.So other LCCI arguments we were pressing to policy-makers at Mipim were that:The Greater London Authority should actively recruit smaller developers to its London Development Panel and should consider deferring payment for land acquired from public ownership until after the homes have gone to market;Local authorities should allow developers of sites under 50 units to defer payment of the community infrastructure levy until the homes have gone to market;The chancellor and mayor of London should launch a ‘help to build’ risk-sharing loan guarantee scheme for smaller developers.The other big issue we were pressing at Mipim were the stark consequences of construction skills shortages. With £95.7bn of construction output planned for 2014-2017, 20% more workers will be needed to meet pipeline demand than were needed from 2010 to 2013.This translates to more than 600,000 workers needed on site next month, with a significant increase needed in roofers, bricklayers, scaffolders and electricians after so many left the industry following the great crash of 2008.To that end we used Mipim to call for:Local authorities to employ a more flexible definition of local labour when setting section 106 requirements to allow apprentices to move across boroughs and complete their training;The government to review the impact of proposed changes to the apprenticeship funding system to minimise the financial and administrative burden to small and medium-sized enterprises;The Skills Funding Agency to convene industry bodies and representatives to redesign training and apprenticeship frameworks to reflect modern methods of construction.These measures are needed because interest in London residential property remains incredibly strong.British buyers returned in force last year and are now being joined by an ever-widening set of overseas investors.In March alone, CBRE Residential has held an event for Chinese buyers at our Henrietta House base, played host to 45 Russian women to mark International Women’s Day and been on sales missions to Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Turkey.Settling the election first time round would be a very positive step, particularly with the political agenda I have outlined above.But my Mipim week wasn’t all about lobbying. Our annual Tuesday-evening dinner has become a residential market fixture and we met dozens of clients in an informal environment with a relaxed atmosphere.My favourite moment? Walking down the Croisette in a hurry and on the phone and crossing paths with Legal & General’s head of real assets Bill Hughes, who was likewise busy with his phone to his ear. How to respond? A simple high-five did us both very well indeed.Mark Collins is chairman of CBRE Residential
