Tweet 25 Views   no discussions Share Sharecenter_img Health Minister Julius Timothy says childhood obesity in Dominica is a major concern for government.Timothy told an address to observe Caribbean Nutrition Day this week that a conference is expected to get underway in Aruba this month, to find solutions to the growing problem of childhood obesity.He says persons should continue to engage in physical activities, in an effort to remain healthy.Timothy says children should be no exception.“Childhood Obesity is a growing concern globally and certainly for us here in Dominica. A conference on childhood obesity is now on the way in Aruba to find solutions to the growing problem of obesity. When we speak of physical activity, we mean any bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles that use energy. Unfortunately our inactive lifestyle has brought us to the point where walking to work, climbing stairs, running around   the community savannahs are some things of the past,” Timothy said.According to him, there is hardly any age limit as it relates to physical activity and this should not only be a   one day activity but must become part of our lifestyle.“It is not unusual   for children to sit for hours without getting involved in some form of physical activity but even preschoolers should engage for at least 60 minutes of structured physical activity each day. Persons 18 years and over, may begin with 90 minutes of moderate –intensity aerobics activity per week while. The older persons should also include physical activity to strengthen muscles and improve balance,” he added.Timothy said further that it is very important to remember that before the commencement of any physical activity one should consider their age, physical development, disability and medical condition. “Therefore, it is necessary to check with your health provider before beginning any form of physical activity,” he explained.Photo credit: nonhores.comDominica Vibes News Share LocalNews Childhood obesity troubles government-Julius Timothy by: – June 3, 2011last_img read more

first_imgCommissioner of Police, Celvin WalwynBASSETERRE, St Kitts (SKNIS) — Crime in the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis has been trending down as security forces continue to implement initiatives to “take back the streets.” This week, Commissioner of Police Celvin Walwyn revealed that proactive measures by the police supported by the defence force, enhanced investigative techniques and greater support from the public and private sector have had a positive impact.“In the first month that I was here – even though we had an increase in shootings over the [prior] month – we had a 48 percent drop in crime in St Kitts,” he stated. “In October, we had a 23 percent drop in crime. So even though it looked like things were getting out of control, things have actually gotten better.”The new tactical force called Delta Squad has been at the forefront of many security operations. The unit is comprised of police and defence force personnel who maintain a zero-tolerance approach to crime. In the first month of operation, the commissioner reported that the men and women recovered approximately five guns, 3,000 marijuana trees and hundreds of bullets.The public has responded to the work of the security forces and has given active support.“The last shooting we had, someone, I don’t know who it was, called my phone and told me we just had a shooting and this is the colour of the vehicle and this is [the direction] they were going in. So we have the citizens now trying to take back their streets and we are doing everything we can to work with the citizens in trying to take back the streets,” Walwyn disclosed.Fostering greater relations and trust between the public and law enforcement officers were among Walwyn’s priorities when he assumed command of the Royal St Christopher and Nevis Police Force on September 1. Another priority was increasing the crime scene investigative techniques of the police.Officers at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) received advanced training on how to read and classify fingerprints using a computer system that was donated by a benefactor. In addition, a pledge was received from another benefactor with the automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS), which creates a database and searches for matches within the stored information. Additional training is planned for members of the security forces in a variety of areas. Commitments have been secured from regional and international agencies in this regard.

His contribution to the development of creole music and cadence-lypso is particularly phenomenal. His talent, dedication and perseverance have yielded legendary hit songs over the period of three decades. Jeff Joseph we know dedicated his whole life to music; through his music he promoted love, togetherness and Caribbean unity while holding firm to his Dominican roots and culture”. Jeff Joseph recently performed at the 15th Annual World Creole Muosic Festival just a few weeks ago. His performance has since been described as energetic, and to patrons never seemed to be his last.Honorable Charles is expressing her sympathies to the community ofSt Joseph, where Jeff Joseph hailed from.” At this point I really wish to convey my heartfelt sympathies and those of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports to the family of Jeff Joe and to the people of St. Joseph on this sad occasion”. The Minister said that Dominica has lost ‘a cultural icon’ and ‘Jeff Joe’ as he was commonly known will be remembered by generations to come.“My heart also goes out to his many friends and fellow musicians. For us we know we have lost a patriotic son, a cultural icon and a hero and we know we’ll definitely miss him. At this point we can only pray that his soul continues to rest in perfect peace”.

first_img The Bluebirds received £62.08million in finishing 20th in their one-season stay in the top flight, over £22million more than QPR did in finishing last in the 2012-13 season. City earned £96.5million as champions – almost £36million more than United’s last term – but second-placed Liverpool were the top earners with £97.5million as a consequence of more of their games being screened live by broadcasters. Manuel Pellegrini’s men appeared in 25 games broadcast in the UK by either Sky Sports or BT Sport, compared to Liverpool’s 28. Third-placed Chelsea, United and Arsenal also appeared in 25 live televised games and Cardiff were one of eight teams to appear in 10 live matches. The season was arguably the most exciting in recent memory, with the lead changing hands 25 times and 1,052 goals scored alongside a record stadium occupancy of 95.9 per cent. The total dividends paid out to the 20 competing clubs was £1.56billion, compared to £972million the previous year. The ratio between the top and bottom earning club was 1.57:1. The Premier League Founder Members’ Agreement dictates 50 per cent of UK broadcast revenue is split equally, 25 per cent is paid in merit payments depending on the finishing position in the final table – £1.2million was paid for every place – and 25 per cent is paid in facility fees each time a club’s matches are broadcast, while all international broadcast revenue, and central commercial revenue, is split equally amongst the 20 clubs. City received £24.72million for finishing first and facility fees of £19.68million; their predecessors as champions United earned £17.30million for finishing seventh and facility fees of £19.68million in a total of £89.1million. The equal share was £21.6million (a rise of 63 per cent on the 2012-13 value of £13.8million), overseas TV revenue was £26.29million and central commercial income of £4.27million to equal £31million (up 61 per cent on the previous year). United received £60.8million in winning the 2012-13 title and £89.1m in finishing seventh a year later as City triumphed for a second time in three years. Thanks to the £5.5billion broadcast deal, Cardiff earned more from finishing bottom of the standings this season than United earned as champions the previous campaign, the Premier League announced on Wednesday. Manchester United received small consolation for surrendering their Barclays Premier League title to Manchester City by earning almost £30million more than when they lifted the trophy the previous season. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img Press Association Hull boss Steve Bruce has demanded an apology from out-of-favour defender Paul McShane. “We don’t know about Curtis, we’ll have to see how he is, but he is extremely sore,” he added. To combat the team’s personnel troubles, Bruce has recalled Tom Ince and Maynor Figueroa from their respective loan spells at Cardiff and Wigan. Neither player were knocking down the door before being sent away earlier this season, but may well find themselves involved in the busy festive period. “Ince and Figueroa have trained with us for the first time on Tuesday,” said Bruce. “We needed them to get games. They’ve had a few but not as many as I’d like, and, with the injuries and suspensions, we welcome them back.” He has also taken to retweeting fan comments about his continued exile, an act which has not gone down well with his manager. And while Bruce would not elaborate on the precise reasons for the current stand-off he was clear that there was only one way to resolve it. “I heard all this nonsense about what’s on Twitter and the rest of it but it’s quite straightforward: Paul knows exactly why he’s training with the Under-21 squad at the moment,” said Bruce. “He’s been quite quick to reveal that he is in there and I hope he comes out and tells the reason why. “If he apologises to myself and to the squad then he will come back into the fold. It’s entirely up to Paul.” Unless McShane works quickly he can expect to miss out once more against former club Sunderland on Boxing Day. With loanee Hatem Ben Arfa also having played his last game for an unimpressed Bruce, Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore both suspended and Michael Dawson, Mohamed Diame and Robert Snodgrass all injured, there is as much first-team talent unavailable as fit and ready for action. Bruce is eager for captain Curtis Davies to pull through after suffering a calf injury against Swansea last weekend. The Republic of Ireland international, who is a fans’ favourite and the club’s longest serving player, has featured just six times this season and has not been seen since the Burnley defeat on November 8. Since then relations appear to have deteriorated significantly, with the 28-year-old sent to train with the development squad. last_img read more

first_imgLONDON, (CMC) – Sussex have moved quickly to tie down Barbadian all-rounder Jofra Archer until the end of the 2020 season, following his outstanding performances in the County season which wrapped up last Thursday.The 22-year-old played a handful of matches at the end of last season with resounding success, forcing Sussex to sign him until the end of the 2017 season.And after a campaign which yielded a remarkable 638 runs and 61 wickets, Archer will now remain in the south-east for the next three seasons.“I’m very excited to be included in the long-term plans of the club. Recently a couple of the other young players have signed new contracts so it’s great to be part of the club’s exciting future,” Archer said.The former West Indies Under-19, who has never played first class cricket for Barbados, led Sussex’s bowling, playing all but one match of the entire Championship season.Bowling with pace and movement, he picked up four five-wicket hauls including a best of seven for 67 against Kent at Hove, in what was just his eighth first class match.The right-arm seamer produced best match figures of 11 for 137 against Leicestershire at Grace Road.He also impressed with his aggressive lower order batting, averaging 45 and gathering five half-centuries, including a top score of 81 not out against Northamptonshire earlier last month.“I think this is the best start anyone could have had to their career, let alone any year. To have it at the start of my career, it’s just been really humbling to be honest,” Archer said.Director of Cricket, Keith Greenfield, said the player had surpassed expectations and had a bright future with the club.“Since Jofra’s been at Sussex he has achieved everything we could have expected and more,” Greenfield said.“We look forward to a bright future developing Jofra both on and off the field, whilst helping him achieve his international ambitions and ultimately winning trophies with us.”Overall this season, Archer grabbed 91 wickets and scored 805 runs.He was awarded his County cap during the interval on the penultimate day of the last round match against Nottinghamshire.last_img read more

first_imgThe ripple effect took hold of Syracuse and never let go. From one shooter to another, Syracuse found its stroke for the second consecutive game, elevating its confidence and building a lead that ballooned to as much as 33.The shooting woes of the past have, for now, been transformed into a complete offensive performance combining outside shooting with the Orange’s trademark high-low game plan.‘I think it’s kind of a ripple effect,’ SU guard Elashier Hall said. ‘Once one person gets going, it gets them confident, and then the confidence just builds throughout the whole team.’Syracuse rode a 45 percent shooting performance to a 76-61 victory over South Florida on Saturday in front of 860 inside the Carrier Dome. The Orange (15-9, 4-6 Big East) drained four 3-pointers, two coming from guard La’Shay Taft, and also saw center Kayla Alexander provide 17 points from the low post. Hall shot 6-of-8 for 15 points, and forward Iasia Hemingway led the balanced scoring effort with 24 points, going 9-of-14 from the field.After SU’s 80-54 blowout win over Providence last Tuesday, during which it shot nearly 58 percent, the Orange came into its game against the Bulls (12-12, 4-6) with a renewed belief that the shots it has been taking all season might finally start to fall on a consistent basis.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘The shots we’ve had all year are starting to fall,’ head coach Quentin Hillsman said. ‘We’ve always gotten good looks. They did a good job of getting the floor spaced and getting themselves to areas where they can score. So now, they’re just falling. They’re shooting the ball with confidence.’Defenses have routinely been packing the paint to strip SU of its go-to options inside on offense. And for much of the season, the Orange’s shooters have been essentially nonfactors.But on Saturday, Syracuse finally provided some punch from the outside, forcing the Bulls to open up the low post and defend around the perimeter. And for the entire first half, SU had little trouble beating the USF defense.Hemingway gave SU offensive production in just about every way possible. She started the game off by dishing the ball down low to Alexander for a layup to give SU an early 2-0 lead. Then the forward drained two free throws, and less than a minute later, she took a pass from guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas at the top of the lane for a catch-and-shoot jumper.And Hemingway did all of that with USF’s defense collapsing on her every move.‘Honestly, I just want to give the credit to my teammates getting the ball back to me,’ Hemingway said. ‘In the first half, they were pancaking, and they weren’t letting me get the throwback. But my teammates found a way to get me the ball.’With about five minutes remaining in the first half, Syracuse also had a rare five-point play from Alexander after the center made a layup. South Florida center Akila McDonald was called for both a personal and technical foul.Alexander drained all three free throws to cap off a 10-0 run that put SU up 34-14 en route to a 39-20 halftime lead. During that span, SU had a 3 from Taft, a jumper from Hemingway and the layup from Alexander.Syracuse’s dominant first half established its offense for the second and also put the Bulls in a hole they couldn’t climb out of.Late in the game, South Florida began to amp up the intensity of its full-court press, at one point forcing two straight turnovers by SU guard Rachel Coffey. But by that point, USF had no chance to put together a comeback.‘The same sort of thing happened at Providence, we got up, had a few turnovers late,’ Hillsman said. ‘So we just have to work on that late-game situation of people scrambling and pressing us a little bit. … I’m glad we were up 30 so it didn’t matter.’As the season winds down, Syracuse appears to be hitting its stroke at the right time. For now, the Orange’s offense is becoming significantly better with contributions from the outside to go with its hallmarks of rebounding and post play.‘The one thing I told our players was that we needed to come out and rebound the basketball and make shots and shoot at least 40 percent to win this basketball game,’ Hillsman said. ‘That’s what we did. We came out, made some shots and did a very good job of getting good shots.’cjiseman@syr.edu  Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Published on February 4, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: cjiseman@syr.edu | @chris_isemanlast_img read more
