JCF Says Take Extra Precautions During Xmas

first_imgRelatedJCF Says Take Extra Precautions During Xmas RelatedJCF Says Take Extra Precautions During Xmas Advertisements RelatedJCF Says Take Extra Precautions During Xmascenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is urging Jamaicans to take extra precautions during the hectic Christmas season.In a pamphlet, ‘Safety During the Holidays’, recently published by the JCF, supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), persons are urged to begin with safety at home, including checking lights for cracked sockets or bare wires.“Use no more than three standard-size sets of lights per single extension cord. Before using lights outdoors, check labels to be sure they have been certified for outdoor use”, are among tips the JCF offers.Persons are also advised to fasten outdoor lights securely to trees, walls, or other firm support structures to protect them from wind damage. Importantly, holiday lights should be turned off when retiring for the night, as lights could short-circuit and cause a fire.One should never use lighted candles near a tree, and should always use non-flammable holders, placing candles where they are safe from being knocked over.Adults must also take special care to avoid decorations that are sharp or may otherwise pose danger to small children, and should avoid trimmings that resemble sweets or food.Individuals are asked to always lock doors, even during short naps; to immediately report suspicious persons or activities to the police; and to keep items such as cheque books, wallets, cash or jewellery out of sight by securing them in a drawer or other places of safety.It is not advisable to keep large sums of cash at home, and a credit or debit card will replace the need to have cash on hand. Broken windows, window screens, door latches or lights that aren’t functioning should be fixed immediately. Ask for identification from all service personnel and make checks to verity, if possible.Then there is the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) which is a particular area of danger for users who do not take proper precautions.“Try to plan your ATM visits during the day, rather than after dark. Choose an ATM location that is in a busy, public place and have your card handy, but not in plain sight, and try to have someone accompany you, particularly at nights,” the JCF advises.Parties and other social events are a must for many Jamaicans during the festive season, but the police are asking everyone to do so sensibly, by drinking responsibly and using designated drivers.“Park in well-lit and busy areas and keep windows rolled up and doors locked. Always remove your keys from the vehicle. Have your keys ready when approaching your vehicle, and look in your back seat before entering,” the JCF cautions.Individuals should also ensure that they have enough fuel; stick to main roads as much as possible during late evenings and night-time; and never pick up strangers, nor go with a stranger who offers help. Do not be afraid to blow your horn if someone approaches your vehicle to attract attention, and drive away immediately and make a report to the police.Stay alert to your surroundings. Be aware of loud commotions that may be staged distractions, and be on the look out for pickpockets at crowded bus stopsThe JCF also acknowledges that the holidays can be quite stressful, and tells persons to allow themselves enough time to go about their business, rather than hurry.The mobile phone is another magnet for thieves, hence these should be kept out of sight when not in use. Also, use a security code to protect data, and put a personal mark on your phone that you could use to identify it if stolen.Phones should not be left in an unattended car, but lock them out of sight, if there is no other option. Citizens may contact their local community safety officer or the JCF Community Safety and Security Branch at: 929-1282, or visit [email protected]cf.gov.jm.

Insistence over Chelsea and West Ham ‘approaches’ for striker – Future…

first_imgPerhaps it’s time for our readers to pick a side when reading the stories about the future of Brazilian striker Gabriel Barbosa. If you’d rather believe the Italian press, Gazzetta Dello Sport recently binned the claims that Chelsea or West Ham would be interested in the 23-year-old.But you prefer the Brazilian media, then there are claims saying the Blues and Hammers still have a chance to get the Inter Milan player.Globo Esporte brings a story explaining Gabigol should go to Italy this week. After his loan spell at Flamengo, he should now return to his parent club and try to sort out his future.Embed from Getty ImagesThe website writes that both Chelsea and West Ham have ‘made approaches’ for the striker. Meanwhile, Flamengo continue to work to sign him permanently.Of course the interest from Premier League clubs could be used by Inter Milan to raise their demands for Gabigol, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them following a player who scored 43 goals in 2019.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?

A look at some vaccine-related legislation in several states

first_imgSeveral state legislatures are debating vaccine-related measures as dozens of people have fallen ill from a measles outbreak that started at Disneyland in December and spread beyond the theme park. Here is a look at some of the legislation around the country:CALIFORNIAThree California lawmakers, all Democrats, introduced legislation this week that would require parents to vaccinate their children before they enter school unless the child cannot be immunized because of a medical condition.Parents would no longer be able to cite personal beliefs or religious reasons to send unvaccinated children to private and public schools. Mississippi and West Virginia are the only other states with such strict vaccine rules, although the California bill’s lead author said he would consider including a religious exemption.California is among 20 states that allow for personal belief exemptions and 48 that allow for religious exemptions, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.___MAINEA bill introduced by a Democratic lawmaker would eliminate the philosophical exemption that allows parents to skip vaccinations for their children. A separate proposal backed by Democrats aims to make getting exemptions more difficult.That bill would require parents to consult with a medical professional about the risks and benefits of vaccines and obtain a signed form if they wish to opt out for non-medical reasons.Another measure, introduced by Republicans, would create a vaccine safety office in Maine’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention that would offer parents guidance on the risks of vaccines. Committee hearings have not yet been held on the bills.___MICHIGANA statewide rule change that took effect Jan. 1 requires parents wanting a philosophical or religious waiver for childhood vaccinations to first be educated by a local health department about the risks. Previously, parents could submit a vaccination waiver to a day care center or school without being briefed by a health expert. Michigan has one of the highest vaccination waiver rates in the U.S.The rule change was pushed by the administration of Gov. Rick Snyder, a Republican, and approved by lawmakers.___MINNESOTAA bill before Minnesota lawmakers would retain existing vaccine exemptions for medical reasons or in cases of personal belief. But parents or guardians of children claiming the personal-belief exemption would have to consult with a doctor about the risks associated with remaining unvaccinated. They also would have to acknowledge that their children could be barred from school or a child-care facility in the event of an outbreak. The bill has yet to be scheduled for a hearing.___MISSISSIPPIUnder a bill that awaits a full legislative debate, the Mississippi State Department of Health would lose its role in deciding whether a child can skip or delay a vaccination that is otherwise mandatory in the state. Instead, it would allow a physician to grant a patient’s vaccine exemption for medical reasons, without seeking the department’s approval.The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Mississippi had the largest percentage of kindergartners in public and private schools who have been vaccinated against diseases for the 2013-14 school year, a rate of 99.7 percent.___MONTANAA Republican lawmaker has added an amendment to an immunization bill that would allow for a greater number of parents to opt out of vaccinations altogether.The amended version would allow parents to forgo vaccinations for their children based on “personal beliefs.” Montana law already allows exemptions for medical reasons and religious beliefs. It passed the House on a 95-4 vote this week.Republican Rep. Greg Hertz, who added the amendment, said he did so to extend rights to parents who are not religious, giving them a route to opt out of vaccinations.The Democratic sponsor of the bill, Rep. Margie MacDonald, said she plans to ask a Senate committee to remove the amendment. Her original bill sought to add chicken pox and whooping cough to the list of required childhood vaccines.___NEW YORKLegislation introduced in New York’s state Senate and Assembly would widen existing exemptions to vaccine mandates by creating a “philosophical” exemption for those whose opposition to immunizations is not based on religious reasons.Currently, children must be vaccinated before attending school unless they obtain a waiver stating that they cannot receive immunizations for medical or religious reasons. But the bill’s supporters say many parents might have general concerns about vaccines that are not tied to religious doctrine.Similar bills have been introduced in past years and have not received a vote.___SOUTH DAKOTAA bill scheduled for a vote in the state Senate would reauthorize schools and day care providers to be able to access records in the state’s immunization registry without parental consent, unless there is a signed refusal for the release of the information in the patient’s medical record.Federal rule changes forced the state in August to allow schools and day care services to access the registry only if they received parental consent, so the state Department of Health brought the proposal forward to restore access.Privacy advocates in the state Legislature won a victory by securing an amendment to the health department’s proposal. It requires providers to tell parents they have the right to stop the immunization information from being shared.___OREGONOregon made it harder for parents to opt out of vaccinations for nonmedical reasons in 2013. That law requires parents to meet with a doctor or watch an informational video before they can reject vaccines for a child entering kindergarten. A bill proposed this year would expand the requirement to all children, including those already in school. A hearing on the bill has yet to be scheduled.The CDC reported that Oregon had the nation’s highest rate of nonmedical vaccine exemptions during the 2012-13 school year.___WEST VIRGINIAA state Senate committee this week stripped language from a bill that would have allowed parents to claim religious exemptions from childhood vaccinations.The bill by Republican Sen. Ryan Ferns would have changed that. Parents would have been able to sign affidavits saying certain vaccinations for their children were against their religious beliefs. That language was removed this week.___Associated Press writers Brian Bakst in St. Paul, Minnesota; Lisa Baumann in Helena, Montana; Alanna Durkin in Augusta, Maine; Jonathan Cooper in Salem, Oregon; David Eggert in Lansing, Michigan; David Klepper in Albany, New York; Jonathan Mattise in Charleston, West Virginia; Fenit Nirappil in Sacramento, California; James Nord in Pierre, South Dakota; and Emily Wagster Pettus in Jackson, Mississippi, contributed to this report.last_img read more

Kootenay Lake Fishing Report

first_imgWith 2018 now in the books, it’s time to see what’s happening on the lakes with another installment of the Reel Adventures Fishing Report.Kerry Reed of Reel Adventures said 2018 was definitely a fun year, meeting many new families and friends and it just reassures the reason we’re in the business. Putting smiles on faces………Looking back on the 2018 season I have a lot of great memories.  From the fantastic Kokanee fishery in the spring, to the amazing Salmon/halibut fishing in the summer, and the great flyfishing season on the Columbia, and to the great fall/winter fishery we had out on Kootenay Lake, it all combined for another great season.Thank you to all of our new guests and our returning guests for making 2018 a wonderful year.  Looking forward to what 2019 has to offer.And now, the latest fishing report:Kootenay Lake:December was another good month on the lake.  It started out with a bang and slowed down a bit near the end of the month.Our early trips saw between 10 -15 fish coming to the boat with the average sizes being: Rainbows between 2 – 4 pounds and Bull Trout from 2 – 8 pounds.One memorable trip was with a boat full of elementary students.  The kids were introduced to some great fishing, with each kid hooking into a couple fish each.  Some of these fish being either the child’s first fish, or their biggest fish.  Making it very rewarding for all of us.  Its always fun sharing our passion with the new anglers, and hopefully getting them a jumpstart into their own fishing adventures.And as the water cooled down in the last couple weeks, we’re managing to hook into 5 – 10 fish on the good days.December weather made it pretty easy to be out there.  The mild days were very comfortable fishing for our groups, and so far January is continuing with the mild temps, so we look forward to spending a lot of time out there.Columbia River: Some mild days made for some fun fishing on the river as well.  We managed to get out a few times from shore and were rewarded each time with some great fish.All Rainbows at this time of year for us, and they ranged from 2 – 4 pounds.Lots of fun on the spinning rods.January and February usually provide us with some pretty decent fish from the river.  Looking forward to more fun times from the shore.Stay tuned……….What are they biting on ???Lately, the lake has produced Rainbows on the surface on my favourite buck tail flies and also on some smaller spoons.The usual grey ghost (215) or bleeding gill(210) has been pretty good as of late.And the same old spoons have been producing.  My favourite Gibbs/Delta croc spoons have been consistent.  The brass/firestripe or the silver/firewing have been the best producers as of late.And for the Bull Trout, we’ve been pulling the usual STS flasher or Lemon Lime guide series flasher with either the green spatter back or the green pistachio hoochie.  Or trolling our 4″ Lyman plugs has been catching a few Bulls as well. Favourite depths for the Bulls have been between 80 – 150ft.Another thing to note is the water temperature.  The current water temp is around 41 degrees, so that means its time to put on the brakes.  Slowing down your trolling speed should help produce more fish.And on the River, its been the usual mix of float fishing with bait, or bottom bouncing with bait which has produced the most fish. The fish are holding in the tailouts or back eddies.  So, look for the slower water this time of year.Stay tuned for more winter reports.Tight lines………………Kerry Reed Reel Adventures Sportfishing Nelson BC 250-505-4963 www.reeladventuresfishing.comlast_img read more
