And then we look at them collectively to control expenditure and to make sure that we are all in sync and that we don’t have little governments that are functioning alongside national government, and that’s where we are. But it is along the line of making sure that it functions properly, and also to control expenditure and to do what it is set out to do, and people are going to feel us in that area.”The Budget Communication, said Premier Sharlene Robinson, who is also the Finance Minister will come before the constitutional deadline of July; it will be presented in the House of Assembly in May.#MagneticMediaNews

Andrew Holness, on bilateral and regional issues. The President made the comment during a courtesy call paid on him by Jamaica’s Ambassador to the United States, Her Excellency Audrey Marks, at the Oval Office in the White House.During their discourse, Mr Trump and Ambassador Marks underscored the strong longstanding bond of friendship between the people Jamaica and the United States of America, while noting the island’s contribution in many spheres of American life.Ms Marks said she looked forward to working with the President in the interest of both countries, and highlighted the synergies of the US-Caribbean nexus cementing the relationship between the nations. The Ambassador, in noting the President’s agenda of providing more trading opportunities for US companies, called attention to the significant trade surplus the North American country enjoys in the Caribbean.She highlighted the fact that the region is the United States’ seventh largest trading partner, importing non-oil goods and services valued over US$50 billion. This, she said, placed the region ahead of U.S. exports to comparatively larger economies such as Russia and India combined.Ms Marks further noted the mutual benefit and alignment of interest for the continued stability and economic growth of the Caribbean which she described as the United States’ ‘third border’. The Jamaican envoy also took the opportunity to invite President Trump to visit Jamaica in his official capacity.#USJamaicaRelations Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#USJamaicaRelations

Croatian legend Davor Suker is feeling quite hurt about the last match between Spain and Croatia, a 6-0 defeat for which he wants revenge.During the last UEFA Nations League match between Spain and Croatia, the Balkans side suffered a very painful defeat that Croatian Football Federation President witnessed from the stands.This loss came during a year in which his national team proved that they are at a top level of performance by reaching the final in Russia, but they weren’t at the top of their level that day and they suffered the wrath of Luis Enrique’s side with goals scored by players like Saul, Sergio Ramos, Rodrigo, Marco Asensio, and Isco.Now that the situation will be reversed and Croatia will play as local, Suker believes there is a great chance for his side to get some sweet revenge even if manager Dalic already confirmed that his squad is not after such retaliation.This match looks like it will be very different compared to the last time they met, Suker is convinced that the World Cup runners-up have learned their lesson and they will take full advantage of their own stadium in Zagreb this Thursday.Suker: “Of course we want our revenge on Spain for that 6-0 drubbing in Elche” https://t.co/sg4k1RC5yr #NationsLeague #Croatia #Spain pic.twitter.com/OwDpf1hjm2— AS English (@English_AS) November 14, 2018Davor Suker is one of Croatia’s biggest football idols, he reached the World Cup semifinals back in the 1998 World Cup and was the tournament’s top scorer.The chairman offered an interview to Diario AS about the upcoming match, where he spoke about several topics but the main one was related mostly about the upcoming match that will start only a few hours from now.“Of course we feel disappointed after the result from the Elche match, where a lot of things didn’t go as planned and the final result was a defeat,” said Suker during the interview.“I’m convinced that the national team manager and the players are motivated to prove that such result was nothing but a bad day and that’s it, especially with what awaits us after the World Cup, this will be the first match we play with all the followers inside the stadium.”“I believe that we are going to have all the support from the fans who will be cheering from the stands inside the stadium.”Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa?

Man accused of threatening Torrey Pines HS to remain in hospital June 13, 2018 Posted: June 13, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom Kevin Matlak from 2015SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A 21-year-old former Torrey Pines High School student accused of posting threats targeting the school on his Instagram account can remain at a county psychiatric hospital where he is being treated for mental health issues, a judge ruled Wednesday.Kevin Gregory Matlak — charged with making criminal threats and identity theft — appeared at his arraignment in a wheelchair, accompanied by two health care workers. Matlak had a blanket pulled up to his face and didn’t say anything during the hearing.Judge Jay Bloom entered a not guilty plea on behalf of the defendant and set bail at $525,000, saying Matlak was a danger to the community.The judge ordered the San Diego County Psychiatric Hospital to give the court 48 hours notice if Matlak was to be released, noting concern for the safety of Torrey Pines students graduating on Friday.Classmates of Matlak who graduated in 2015 reported the threats to law enforcement on May 30, leading to his arrest.Matlak bailed out of jail and voluntarily checked himself into the mental health facility June 4, defense attorney Brian Watkins said.The attorney said Matlak is a danger to himself, but not to others.Watkins said Matlak didn’t threaten anyone directly, but three former classmates read his posts on Instagram and felt threatened by them. The attorney said the threats were “not very clear” and “ambiguous.”Deputy District Attorney Matthew Greco said one of Matlak’s posts read “Rest in Peace Torrey Pines High School.”“I hate all of you,” another post read, according to the prosecutor.Matlak also posted a photo of him holding an AR-15 rifle in one hand and giving the middle finger with the other hand, Greco said.Matlak faces four years and four months in state prison if convicted.

The American Soybean Association (ASA) urges all members and state soybean associations to submit comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding the Proposed Rule for biodiesel volume requirements under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). The deadline for comments to EPA is July 11. Draft comments are available here for states and individuals to use. ASA will also be submitting comprehensive comments.The Proposed Rule calls for 2.1 billion gallons of biomass-based diesel in 2018. As a point of reference, the biomass-based diesel requirements for 2016 and 2017 are 1.9 billion and 2.0 billion gallons, respectively. The biomass-based diesel utilization in the U.S. was approximately 2.1 billion gallons in 2015 and is expected to exceed that amount in 2016. As you can see, we are already at the levels EPA is proposing for 2018 and the volumes of imports have been increasing the past several years and are expected to continue to grow.There is a 60 day public comment period running through July 11 and states and members are encouraged to submit comments. Instructions for submitting comments are provided at the Soy Action Center.

Cougar blood runs deep in the Ogden family.Three generations of the prominent Vancouver family have graduated from the Washington State University Pullman campus, and the Ogdens helped to bring the branch campus to Vancouver in 1989.So when WSU Vancouver gave the Community Award of Distinction for Community Partnership to Val and Dan Ogden at a recognition dinner this week, it was a special honor for the couple, Val Ogden said.“We’re very proud,” she said. “We felt greatly honored. It’s doubly important to us because it comes from a university that we’re very proud of.”Val Ogden pushed hard for the opening of the campus while serving in the State House of Representatives for 12 years, she said.“It’s such a godsend to have it here; it met such a need,” Val Ogden said. “The site is stunning and the campus keeps growing. We are drawing people to come to Vancouver.”The couple established the first graduate-level endowed scholarship at the Vancouver campus. And Val Ogden championed the creation of school vanity license plates with fees to support other scholarships throughout the university system.
Mentors can play a significant role in education by helping many more students succeed in challenging courses and also by supporting teachers. Southwest Washington’s efforts connecting students with professionals in science, technology, engineering and math — collectively known as STEM — were celebrated Thursday night inside an nLight Corp. warehouse packed with educators, students and professionals volunteering as mentors.The STEM mentoring nonprofit organization called nConnect was founded in 2005 by Scott Keeney, chief executive officer of nLIGHT, a leading manufacturer of semiconductor lasers.“My whole life has changed,” said Reem Sabha, a Mountain View High School junior who is being mentored by an nConnect volunteer in her Advanced Placement calculus class. “I love calculus now, and I want to be an engineer.”Sen. Patty Murray was there Thursday night, lauding the program’s success.“We have an education deficit in this country,” Murray said. “Investing in STEM programs is absolutely critical for our future.”In 2005, Murray attended the nConnect kickoff event at the nLight warehouse. In its pilot program year of 2005-2006, there were seven physicist-mentors from nLight, seven high school physics teachers, 36 students and one intern. In contrast, in 2011-2012, there are 232 mentors, 144 mentor businesses, 100 internships and a total of 1,650 students participating in nConnect’s programs. All students — not just the privileged — should have the opportunity to succeed in these rigorous courses. More rigorous courses are needed in high school if U.S. students are to be competitive in the global economy. 2005-06 pilot year:o mentors: 7o mentor businesses: 1o student internships: 1o students: 362011-12 year:o mentors: 232o mentor businesses: 144o student internships: 100o students: 1,650www.nconnectnw.orgCore beliefs:
OLYMPIA — At the end of February, the restaurant Anthony’s Homeport on the Olympia waterfront saw a table for five that racked up a total bill of $343.88. If the tab had been split evenly, Democratic Sen. Steve Hobbs and Democratic Rep. Dean Takko each would have had a dinner portion exceeding $67, an amount that would have forced an extra layer of reporting. But when Boeing lobbyist Susan Champlain reported the expenditure on her disclosure filing, she wrote that the lawmaker portions of the bill were just over $45 apiece — a little under the $50 reporting threshold. Champlain listed herself and another Boeing lobbyist as having a total portion of $207.84. A Boeing spokeswoman said in a statement that the company’s representatives arrived at the restaurant earlier than the elected officials, ordered beverages and appetizers while waiting, and covered the tip and taxes at the end of the meal.“The amounts listed for each legislator accurately reflect the cost of legislator meals alone as neither official consumed pre-dinner food and beverages,” said Boeing spokeswoman Sue Bradley.That filing is just one of many peculiar reports that appear to have become commonplace among Washington state lobbyists, who face almost no scrutiny for the bewildering records they file with the state’s Public Disclosure Commission.
Rain? Yes, it is in the forecast this week. Good news? Maybe Saturday will turn out dry. How’s that?The storm over the weekend was a doozy in Puget Sound, with high winds. Guess we live in the banana belt. It has been quite a while since we had a windstorm. No windstorms are heading our way, just more rain and showers.The Cascades picked up a good shot of snow, with Government Camp reporting nine inches on the ground early Monday. However, higher freezing levels had turned the snow into rain by Monday evening.Some rain was expected to fall higher up on the mountain at Timberline but change back to snow later on. At least we are getting an early start on the snow season this November. I still believe as the Thanksgiving holiday arrives, there will be lots of mountain snow and the ski season will be underway.Lots of very cold air from the north is expected to dump into the Gulf of Alaska next week at this time and will likely spawn some good storms, with windy and wet conditions and mountain snow. If the cold air were to flow further east, we would get quite chilly but dry. So our first battle of the air masses is arriving soon. Stay tuned to see how things go.I know we’re only a few days into November but rain-wise we are running close to normal as of 5 p.m. Monday. The average mean temperature is also about average at 49.5 degrees — nothing too exciting so far. But as I have indicated, I think the last half of the month will be worth writing home about.
MOKPO, South Korea — The investigation into South Korea’s ferry disaster focused on the sharp turn it took just before it began listing and on the possibility that a quicker evacuation order by the captain could have saved lives, officials said Friday, as rescuers struggled to find some 270 people still missing and feared dead.Police said a high school vice principal who had been rescued from the ferry was found hanging Friday from a pine tree on Jindo, an island near the sunken ship where survivors have been housed. He was the leader of a group of 323 students traveling on the ship on a school excursion, and said in a suicide note that he felt guilty for being alive while more than 200 of his students were missing.Prosecutors and police also said Friday they have asked a court to issue arrest warrants for the captain and two other crewmembers.Besides the teacher, at least 28 people are now confirmed dead from the ferry, the Sewol, which sank Wednesday. Officials said there were 174 survivors and about 270 people remain missing, many of them high school students. With the chances of survival becoming slimmer by the hour, it was shaping up to be one of South Korea’s worst disasters, made all the more heartbreaking by the likely loss of so many young people, aged 16 or 17.The ship had left the northwestern port of Incheon on Tuesday on an overnight journey to the holiday island of Jeju in the south with 476 people aboard. It capsized within hours of the crew making a distress call to the shore at 9 a.m. Soon, only its dark blue keel jutted out over the surface. By late Friday, even that had disappeared, and rescuers floated two giant beige buoys to mark the area. Navy divers attached underwater air bags to the 6,852-ton ferry to prevent it from sinking further, the Defense Ministry said. Coast guard officials said divers began pumping air into the ship in an attempt to sustain any survivors.On Jindo’s shore, angry and bewildered relatives watched the rescue attempts. Some held a Buddhist prayer ritual, crying and praying for their relatives’ safe return.
