Floyd Green, in making the disclosure in his contribution to the 2018/2019 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on May 8, said that “the issue of bullying is real and has to be addressed”.“Our anti-bullying campaign will highlight the prevalence of bullying, giving real-life scenarios and how children who are being bullied can get help,” he noted.He noted that the safety in schools framework will also be strengthened with the introduction of a team of social workers who can assist in exploring the home situations of those who exhibit bullying tendencies, “because oftentimes, even the bullies are victims”.The anti-bullying campaign is one of three major public-education initiatives to be rolled out by the CPFSA in May. The others are focused on corporal punishment and children protection.Mr. Green said the messages will be transmitted via mainstream and social media. “The agency’s public relations team will be hosting road shows islandwide as well as school and community visits,” he informed.Meanwhile, the State Minister said the Ministry is formulating a ‘Know your Policy’ campaign to educate the public about the National Youth Policy 2017-2030.The policy is designed to address major needs, challenges and opportunities for young people, while seeking to define a common vision and framework for youth development.“It also endeavours to provide all youth to have access to meaningful opportunities, so that they may reach their full potential, and gives direction to youth programmes and services provided by the Government and non-government organisations,” Mr. Green said.

Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Shahine Robinson, says the Government is committed to strengthening the capacity of regional labour inspectors to eliminate child labour.She was speaking at the opening of a ‘Training of Trainers Workshop’ on Labour Inspection, with a focus on Child Labour, and Occupational Safety and Health, held on July 2 at the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel in Kingston.“The Government is very pleased to be hosting this workshop to strengthen the capacity of our regional labour inspectors as part of our international thrust to eliminate child labour,” the Minister said.“This regional initiative will promote integrated strategies at all levels to end hazardous child labour and address the specific safety and health issues faced by workers,” she added.Thirty-three trainers from the Ministries of Labour in Jamaica, Guyana and The Bahamas are participating in the workshop, which is slated to run from July 2 to 6. It forms part of the International Labour Organization (ILO) Latin America and the Caribbean Free of Child Labour regional initiative.For her part, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Colette Roberts Risden, said the workshop will greatly enhance the capabilities of labour inspectors in identifying issues of occupational safety and child labour, “which, ultimately, will lead to a better and safer region for our children”.The workshop is being facilitated by Brazilian inspectors under the South-South Technical Cooperation Programme between Brazil and the ILO and hosted by the Ministry’s Child Labour Unit.Ambassador of the Federative Republic of Brazil to Jamaica, His Excellency Carlos Alberto M. Den Hartog, who brought greetings at the ceremony, said the workshop will assist in building the capacity of labour inspectorates to deliver training programmes to address child labour in Jamaica and other participating countries.“It represents an important opportunity for countries to enhance the (resources) available in each country of the region to achieve a comprehensive and quicker result in eliminating child labour. It is a tool for the strengthening of the political efforts of governments to mobilise resources for eradicating child labour,” he noted.There are nine participating countries under the initiative. These are The Bahamas, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Haiti, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago.The objectives of the workshop are to build national capacity in labour inspection, with the aim of improving the enforcement of national labour laws and contributing to the reduction and elimination of child labour in the country.

Further, Facebook lost its prominence by July 2012 as the top downloaded social app, falling to the third spot behind Instagram and Twitter (as measured across Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Korea, United Kingdom, and the U.S.).For the full report, click here. A new report conducted by app store analytics firm Distimo finds that the United States is the most “socially savvy” country by virtue of its download volume of social apps. According to Distimo, out of the most popular apps downloaded, 20 percent of the volume is apps from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and the like. In countries in Europe and South East Asia, social app download volume doesn’t exceed 10 percent. These findings are part of a larger look at how social media app downloads compare to other apps. As an example, the report finds that while download volume among the 100 most popular apps in Apple’s App Store increased 43 percent over the last two years, the top 100 social applications increased 193 percent between July 2010 and July 2012.
$155 at Google Express Comment I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. $60 at Best Buy What’s cooler: A snapshot of a firework exploding in front of you, or full 360-degree video of all the fireworks and all the reactions to seeing them?

Robin Yanhong Li, CEO of Baidu, says the company will focus on AI to help it through tough times. VCG/VCG via Getty Images The new year’s pep talk delivered by Baidu’s chief executive for 2019 was a bit chilly. Robin Yanhong Li, CEO of China’s largest search engine, warned that “winter is coming” in a letter to employees regarding China’s economic growth slowing down, according to South China Morning Post. Baidu is the equivalent of Google in China. Economic restructuring is “as cold and real as winter to every company,” Li reportedly wrote Wednesday to staff. But “historical transformation of [artificial intelligence] is penetrating various various industries, unleashing enormous growth potential and room for upgrade.”Li also reportedly told employees through a famous Chinese proverb — “Only when the year grows cold do we see the qualities of the pine and the cypress” — that Baidu will step up its game and come out stronger while other companies are struggling to cope with the changing economic landscape in China. Baidu didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. The “winter” talk isn’t new in China. The world’s second largest economy is slowing down faster than expected, according to a Wall Street Journal report in October. The report said China’s exports, economic performance and effects from the US-China trade war were all factors that contributed to Chinese market’s foreseeable “winter.””It’s high time that Baidu stepped forward,” Li reportedly said. Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Akshay KumarTwitterAkshay Kumar is undoubtedly one of the most bankable stars in Bollywood and his box office track record is a proof of that. He has earned a set of loyal audience who never give his films a miss in theatres. His immense fan following and choices of roles guarantee him a certain percentage of occupany that soon gets converted into big numbers at the box office. And after doing an assessment and knowing his worth, the Khiladi Kumar has reportedly started charging double the amount that he was charging 7 years ago.According to a report in The Asian Age, Akshay, who had earlier charged Rs 27 crore for Rowdy Rathore, now demands a whopping Rs 54 crore per film.”Akshay is fond of the number nine. When he was working on Rowdy Rathore, he billed the makers for Rs 27 crore. But that was in 2012. Now, Akshay demands a cool Rs 54 crore and gets it too,” a trade expert was qouted as saying by the daily.And now that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has reportedly bankrolled the sequel to Rowdy Rathore, the filmmaker will have to pay Akshay double the price compared to the amount that he charged for the part 1.”Sanjay Leela Bhansali had bankrolled Rowdy Rathore, which was directed by Prabhudheva. And when Akshay shifted the release date of Pad Man last year to get a free run for Padmaavat at the box office, he jokingly asked Bhansali to promise him a sequel. And now that the sequel is happening, the makers realise that they will need to pay him exactly double for it,” the trade expert added.It is to be noted that Akshay was the only Indian celebrity who was featured in the Forbes list of the world’s highest paid actors 2019. He had secured the 33rd spot with earnings worth 65 million USD (that is around Rs 444 crore in Indian currency).Akshay is currently loaded with a few big and interesting line-ups this year. After triggering nationalist fervor with Kesari, the Khiladi Kumar will be next seen in Mission Mangal, Housefull 4, Laxmmi Bomb and Good News this year and Sooryavanshi, Laxmmi Bomb in 2020 and will also make his debut in digital space with The End on Amazon.
Japan’s Minister of Finance Taro Aso poses for an official photo at the G7 Finance Ministers Summit in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada on 1 June. Photo: ReutersUS-imposed trade tariffs on its close allies could have a “grave impact” on ties and the world trading system, the Japanese government said Monday, describing the situation as “extremely deplorable”.Washington found itself isolated at a weekend meeting of G7 finance ministers over its stinging steel and aluminium tariffs and Tokyo kept up the barrage in unusually strong language.“It is extremely deplorable that the situation has not improved even after Japan has explained to the US its concerns at various levels,” said government spokesman Yoshihide Suga.Close allies Tokyo and Washington have been at loggerheads over trade policy after the US refused to give Japan an exemption from the tariffs, which came into effect on Friday.“The US government’s trade measures, citing its security, makes us concerned that they could disrupt the global market,” Suga told reporters.“On top of that, we think that it may have a grave impact on the economic cooperation between the allies Japan and the United States and on the whole multilateral trading system under the WTO (World Trade Organization) rules.”The trade row has cast a shadow over the relationship between prime minister Shinzo Abe and US president Donald Trump, who have forged otherwise close ties.Last month, Tokyo informed the WTO it had the right to impose tariffs worth 50 billion yen ($456 million) on American goods-equivalent to the impact of the US tariffs newly imposed on Japanese steel and aluminium products.According to the most recent data, Japan’s trade surplus with the US was 615.7 billion yen in April ($5.6 billion), a gain of 4.7 per cent on higher demand for cars and construction machinery.
Two girls, in their late 20s, knock on the door of Subhash Barman, a fisherman living in Gopinathpur Malopada village, about 35 km from Dhaka. The family welcomes them warmly. Shilpi Barman, the wife of Subhash, is in her seventh month of pregnancy. These girls cut Shilpi’s nails and check her blood pressure. They then inspect her bedroom to check whether the bedsheets are clean and also collect her urine sample.These girls are paramedics from Gonoshasthaya Kendra (GK), a non-profit, which provides community healthcare to the marginalised. Started in 1972, GK has today reached more than 1.5 million rural people in 647 villages through over 1,100 employees, 43 primary health centres (PHCS), five referral hospitals and one medical college.

A World Bank report highlighted GK’s success, To the MDGs and Beyond: Accountability and Institutional Innovation in Bangladesh, in 2006. It says, “GK has already exceeded the MDG for infant mortality a decade ahead of time while the rest of the country remains at a level two-thirds higher. On maternal mortality, GK has achieved a rate of 186 per 100,000 live births, 42 percent lower than the national average in 2001 when the decline for the country as a whole was much less.” Besides, GK provides multiple health facilities to vulnerable people.
