Black Sigatoka affects carnival costume building

first_img Share EntertainmentLocalNews Black Sigatoka affects carnival costume building by: – January 15, 2014 Sharing is caring! Tweet Sharecenter_img Share 46 Views   no discussions Coordinator of the Black Sigatoka Disease Management Unit in Dominica, Carol AbrahamAs Dominica prepares for the staging of Real Mas 2014 celebrations, costumes and sensei builders have been cautioned that dried banana leaves should not be used in their designs.This is a precautionary measure against spreading black sigatoka disease which was confirmed here in May 2012. To date, the disease which affects plantain and banana crops has moved from the south of the island to Concord, Marigot, Wesley, Bense, Picard, Bath Estate, Castle Bruce, Carholm, Layou Valley, Belles and Warner among other areas. Coordinator of the Black Sigatoka Disease Management Unit in Dominica, Carol Abraham told the first of a series of press conferences leading up to Carnival at the Dominica Festival Committee’s office on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 that the use of dried banana leaves in constructing costumes will not be tolerated this year. According to Abraham, the disease has been confirmed in areas where there are usually major carnival activities like Grand Bay, Salisbury and Portsmouth.“In Salisbury heights the disease is up there so we do not want people to go up there get the dry fig to make the costumes and bring it in the lower section where the disease hasn’t really entered”.“Grand Bay is really infested, so we are encouraging people not to use the dried plantain and fig leaves to make sensei costumes,” Abraham added. She advised costume and sensei builders to “use anything else to make your sensei, your plastic, paper, cloth; just leave the dry leaves please”. According to Abraham, even if the leaf has gotten to the black stage or the dark brown stage, the fungus is still alive.“If you’re making the costume and you come from one part of the country down to the Opening Parade for instance, you find that the fungus is able to move”.Additionally, “we have all this rain right now so that is the ideal condition for the fungus to spread”.While Abraham acknowledged that “the wind and rain is nature so we cannot control that”, she said “man is a big culprit” of spreading the infected material.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

first_imgShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related Aplikasi GrabShuttle Plus (www.straitstimes.com) Penyedia transportasi berbasis online, Grab, baru-baru ini memulai uji coba untuk layanan berbasis permintaan (on demand) di Punggol, Singapura setelah empat bulan Land Transport Authority (LTA) mengumumkan untuk mencari pelayanan bus seperti ini. Layanan baru ini diluncurkan Rabu 11 November 2017 kemarin yakni GrabShuttle Plus.Baca juga: Singapore Airlines dan Grab Integrasikan Layanan Ridesharing di Satu AplikasiKabarPenumpang.com merangkum dari straitstimes.com (8/11/2017), para pengguna yang melakukan pemesanan pada aplikasi di smartphone kini dapat mengharapkan sebuah bus antar jemput yang tiba sekitar lima sampai sepuluh menit sebelumnya dan bisa membawa mereka ke stasiun sekitar Punggol. Wahana GrabShuttle Plus ini tersedia antara pukul 06.00 pagi dan 22.00 dan tarif yang dikenakan S$1,20. GrabShuttle terbaru ini berbeda dari yang sebelumnya diluncurkan, ini adalah kolaborasi Government Technology Agency of Singapore, yang hanya beroperasi pada rute dan timing tetap.Kepala GrabShuttle Singapura, Mr James Ong, mencatat bahwa Grab mengambil bagian dalam tender untuk bus on demand LTA. Uji coba Punggol, nantinya akan membantu mengumpulkan wawasan untuk memberikan layanan yang superior jika dipilih.James mengatakan dengan adanya ini akan melengkapi jaringan transportasi umum yang lebih luas. “Kami memiliki kepercayaan yang sama dengan LTA bahwa layanan bus dinamis dapat memberikan pengalaman perjalanan yang lebih baik dan mengoptimalkan sumber daya dan biaya operasional,” tambahnya.James menggambarkan Punggol sebagai testbed alami untuk layanan baru ini yang mencatat bahwa penghuninya adalah pengguna Grab biasa. Tak hanya Punggol, kedepannya jika Grab terpilih, maka layanan baru ini akan mencakup wilayah lain juga.Saat ini Grab sedang fokus membuat lebih banyak orang menggunakan layanan ini sehingga bisa mempelajari pola perjalanan untuk layanan bus dinamis ini. Aplikasi GrabShuttle Plus terbaru ini akan tersedia di iOS dan Android dengan didukung oleh teknologi Kanada dari Startup RideCo yang menawarkan layanan serupa di Ontario, Kanada.Baca juga: Di Kanada Uber Jadi Transportasi Umum Dengan Trayek Khusus James mengatakan, Rideco menyediakan platform yang memungkinkan Grab untuk mempelajari perilaku pengguna dengan penyempurnaan teknologi minimal pada bagiannya. “Kami akan merambah secara global dengan mitra operator transportasi lokal, berkat skala Grab dan pengetahuan pasar lokal membuat solusi ini menjadi kombinasi yang sempurna,” kata pendiri RideCo, Prem Gururajan.Dia mengatakan bahwa RideCo ingin memperluas jangkauannya di Asia Tenggara, dan mengharapkan untuk meluncurkan lebih banyak layanan di wilayah ini dalam beberapa bulan mendatang. Sedangkan para pengamat mengatakan mereka tidak terkejut dengan layanan terbaru Grab.Bus on demand seperti layanan ride sharing GrabShare atau Uberpool on steroids, kata dosen senior Ilmu Pengetahuan Universitas Singapura Park Byung Joon, yang mengkhususkan diri pada transportasi perkotaan. Dr Lee Der Horng, seorang peneliti transportasi dengan National University of Singapore, mengatakan dengan pengalamannya dalam menawarkan layanan penyewaan, Grab memiliki lebih banyak pengalaman dalam menangani big data dan juga penanganan permintaan komuter.Azmi Mohamed, seorang penumpang mengatakan bahwa layanan bus on demand bukanlah pengganti yang menarik untuk layanan bus pengumpan, yang sudah sangat biasa dan murah, dengan tarif dibatasi 77 sen per perjalanan. Tetapi spesialis IT mencatat bahwa layanan bus on demand semacam itu bisa menjadi keuntungan saat bepergian di antara tempat-tempat yang berada di dekatnya, namun tidak dilayani oleh layanan bus konvensional.last_img read more

Antisipasi Covid-19, Semua Awak Kabin di Taiwan Dilengkapi APD

first_imgAwak kabin Taiwan diberikan APD oleh CECC (simpleflyingc.om) Maskapai dunia saat ini tengah terpuruk karena banyak rute penerbangan yang di tutup karena Covid-19 yang tengah merebak. Tak hanya itu, pelancong-pelancong pun membatalkan tiket penerbangan mereka demi pencegahan diri sendiri agar tidak terinfeksi.Baca juga: Virus Corona Merebak, Awak Kabin Cari PerlindunganMeski terpuruk, tetapi sepertinya Taiwan cukup berhasil dalam memerangi dampak terburuk krisis dan ancaman terhadap industri penerbangan saat ini. Bahkan semua maskapai Taiwan seperti Eva Air, China Airlines dan beberapa lainnya akan dibagikan alat pelindung diri (APD). APD tersebut dibagikan oleh Pusat Komando Epidemi Sentral Taiwan atau Taiwan Centers for Desease Control (CECC). Peralatan yang dibagikan seperti masker bedah, kacamata, pakaian pelindung dan sarung tangan yang juga merupakan alat yang sama diberikan kepada tenaga medis. Bisa dikatakan kehadiran peralatan ini menjadi peningkatan besar-besaran dari hanya awalnya yang menggunakan masker saja.KabarPenumpang.com melansir laman simpleflying.com (30/3/2020), kehadiran APD ini sendiri karena Menteri Kesehatan Cheng Shih-Chung merupakan kepala dari CECC di Taiwan. Selain menghadirkan APD, CECC juga tengah mempertimbangkan mandat undang-undang dan peraturan baru untuk memastikan bahwa penumpang tidak membahayakan awak kabin.Hal ini mungkin termasuk memberi tahu staf jika mereka memiliki kondisi demam, duduk terpisah atau mencegah batuk pada orang lain. Sejauh ini satu-satunya aturan yang berlaku untuk maskapai Taiwan adalah bahwa penumpang dapat membawa botol desinfektan dan APD mereka sendiri, tetapi mereka tidak dapat mengganti kursi di pesawat tanpa izin dari awak pesawat.Selain dengan APD, pemerintah Taiwan juga mengatakan agar awak pesawat yang baru kembali dari penerbangan jarak jauh atau luar negeri diharapkan untuk mengisolasi diri selama lima hari. Hal ini dilakukan jika ada yang terinfeksi tidak akan menularkannya pada orang lain.Selain awak pesawat komersial, awak pesawat kargo yang mengantar barajng ke dan dari luar negeri pun harus mengisolasi diri mereka hanya saja waktunya lebih singkat yakni tiga hari. Bisa dikatakan, waktu isolasi diri para awak pesawat ini lebih pendek dari aturan yang diterapkan pada penumpang, yang perlu mengisolasi diri selama 14 hari ketika tiba di Taiwan.Baca juga: Penumpang Terpapar Virus dalam Penerbangan, Vietjet Tawarkan Asuransi ‘”Sky Covid Care”Untuk diketahui, Taiwan saat ini tidak mengizinkan pelancong untuk berkunjung dan telah menutup bandaranya untuk transit penumpang. Mereka juga membatasi yang tiba di Taiwan seperti warga negara dan yang memiliki hak untuk tinggal di sana.Apakah dengan kehadiran APD yang akan digunakan awak pesawat ini membuat mereka terlindungi?Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedAntisipasi Covid-19, Awak Kabin AirAsia Punya Seragam Baru Mirip Kostum Hazmat29/04/2020In “Destinasi”Serikat Pekerja Awak Kabin di AS Minta Semua Orang Gunakan Masker di Bandara dan Kabin Pesawat29/04/2020In “Domestik”Dengan Dalih Risiko Tertular Covid-19!

Browns Coach Freddie Kitchens Wants Greedy Williams to Stop Writing Checks with His Mouth

first_imgNewly drafted Browns cornerback Greedy Williams made headlines when he was drafted by Cleveland, proclaiming that the Browns are going to the Super Bowl this season – and adding “that’s a fact.”His head coach wasn’t feeling the disrespect that it might have showed to the other 31 teams in the league, and quickly Freddie Kitchens made it known that he’s not all that happy about a new player coming out with such statements. “We’re not in the prediction business,’’ Kitchens said regarding Williams’ comment. The Browns loved what they saw out of Williams enough to move up from No. 49 to 46 in a deal with the Indianapolis Colts to grab the LSU corner.Williams has the confidence, as shown by making such a statement, but maybe the message should be put on hold till the team plays even a couple of games.“I like the confidence,’’ Kitchens said. “I like the excitement and the passion that he has, but I think that mantra kind of changed today probably, right?”It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Williams’ mouth go on silent mode after the chat with Kitchens, probably a smart move for all involved. “But I don’t know how many predictions he’ll be making. He’s a good kid, though. He’s a really good kid and he was just full of excitement and I like excitement and I like enthusiasm and he has a lot of both.’’ Related TopicsBrownsfeaturedFreddie KitchensGreddy Williams Matt Loedecenter_img Matt Loede has been a part of the Cleveland Sports Media for over 21 years, with experience covering Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, the National Football League and even high school and college events.

Guardiola Reveals Future Course If City Get Champions League Ban

first_imgManchester City boss Pep Guardiola has stated his willingness to extend his stay at the Premier League champions beyond 2021 when his current contract ends even though the club faces a potential two-year Champions League suspension.City were banned from European competition for the next two seasons and fined 30 million euros ($32.53 million) by UEFA last week after an investigation into alleged breaches of Financial Fair Play rules.Guardiola, who this week stated that he had no reason to leave the club in the close season, said he would take a call on an extension after talking to City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak “at the end of the season or in the middle of next season.”“I’m working with exceptional players and I have the feeling that they follow us 100%. Knowing how it’s not easy working with us and with me, but I’m happy,” Guardiola told reporters.“That’s the only reason why, when I move from one place, always it’s because I’m thinking I can be happier than the place that I was before.“We’ve got incredible owners and a good relationship, so I think it will not be a problem to understand both sides, if we decide to stay three more years or stay in the time we are together.”Guardiola, who has never spent more than four years at his previous clubs Barcelona (2008-2012) and Bayern Munich (2013-2016), signed a one-year contract extension at City in 2018 — a decision he said he did not regret.“The important thing is that I didn’t regret one second to come here and extend the contract,” he added. “After that results dictate our job… Every manager is sacked, every manager has problems, every manager has good and bad moments.“I am no different. I don’t regret one moment the decision we made together and I want to finish this contract and after that we will see.”Relatedlast_img read more
