Tweet 10 Views no discussions Share Inspector Claude WeekesIn an exclusive interview with Inspector Claude Weekesthis morning, Dominica Vibes News learnt that no decision has been made regarding payment of the reward which was offered for missing teen Shanice Jemmot.“While a reward was offered by the members of the family, I think $10, 000.00 and $5000.00 by a private citizen, the Government of Dominica also offered a reward in the sum of $20, 000.00. What we must note here it’s a decision that has to be taken and I’m sure the best decision will be taken as to who will be given that reward, or whoever it is, is deserving of that reward.”Inspector Weekes further explained that the “What is also important is that Shanice has been found alive, that is what is cruicial.”Inspector Weekes made special mention and thanked the Dominican public, Social Welfare agencies and the media for the role they played during the search for the missing teen.He particularly highlighted the role of the Government,”they were very much concerned in fact the Prime Minister and his team visited the Police Headquarters and had a meeting with the top echelon of the Police Department and the other co-ordinating sections who were on the ground. Because I can tell you, the Government’s concern has to be noted, while people were saying negative things about the Police and the Government in fact they were calling for a new commissioner, they were calling for the FBI to come, they were calling for Scotland Yard and they cried down ofcourse with victriolic comments on the Police Department.Inspector Weekes reiterated the commitment of the Police Department to the Commonealth of Dominica, “We want to say that our Police Department continues to be committed in fighting crimes. In fact we have a mandate to fulfill, and even the resources that we have I can tell you that we are doing admirably better than many of our colleagues in other jurisdictions and they are blessed with probably better technology and more advanced resources technology and other resources.Dominica Vibes News read more
Okay, Carson Palmer ain’t no Tom Brady but c’mon he still was a first round draft choice out of fabled USC, (University of Southern California). And yes he is still a bonafide NFL QB. Now get this, Brady was selected with pick No. 199 in the sixth round of the 2000 draft. So see folks, it is not about pedigree, it is about perseverance, purpose and last but not least, coaching. The reason Brady and the Patriots are in an elite class is because of preparation, persistence and probability. The Patriots, excluding their cheating past, have always, (and I do not care what the haters say or think) at least under Bill Belichick been extremely well prepared. They are comfortable understanding what they are doing and appear to delegate more time deciphering what the opposition is doing or not doing. Bill Belichick would rather exploit your weaknesses first and foremost. He can always get back to his strengths. When he does he wants to make sure that you have no positives left. He does not want to demoralize your team for a particular game; he wants to psychologically batter your squad and place the albatross of a “generational” curse around your neck. He doesn’t care if you beat everyone else; his only concern is that you, your coaches, fans, janitors, and ball boys be filled with anxiety and concern when preparing to face him.His second order of business is to attack the strength of your offense. If you are a great passing team but a mediocre running team, he will not even start a game with eight men in the box. He will play tight coverage or disguised cover two to take away your passing strong points. Why would he allow you to throw the ball when that is your comfort zone? Belichick wants to take away your assets so that you have nothing left to fall back on.When the Patriot’s beat the Steelers earlier this season, they did not come out hurting themselves, determined to prove that they possessed a running game with a hump of egotism and machismo on their backs. No, Brady threw eight and ten yard passes until the Steelers were vomiting and dizzied. The Patriots did not take what the Steelers gave them; they exploited a very glaring and blaring weakness. New England used the pass to set up the run, not vice-versa.When the Patriots defeated the St. Louis Rams in XXXVI, they were of course “visually” aided, but no matter what you do and how you coach the game plan still must be executed.The Patriots put “mad” pressure on Kurt Warner and forced him to throw quick minimum yardage gaining passes. Rams receivers were getting whacked around as if they were running backs. By the time they reached the mid-point of the third quarter the Rams receivers were battered, bruised and bloody. Forget about winning or losing, they just wanted to find a hot tub and a warm bed. The Steelers must mirror that defensive strategy for the remainder of their opponents in 2010. Also, Pittsburgh cannot afford to play 10+ yards off any opponent’s receivers because if they do quick slants behind the linebackers and in front of the corners and safeties, completions will be easy pickin’s for Brady, Phillip Rivers, Peyton Manning or any other quarterback with a reasonable football “I.Q.”All the “tough” G.I. Joe types are spewing their usual pre-post season rhetoric. “You must play great defense and run the football because of the weather and time of possession,” ya know all of the traditional methods of being successful in the NFL. Well there is a new sheriff in town and he goes by the name of “5 wides empty backfield.” You do not have to have a perfect running game but by golly you do have to have offensive stability and the ability to score some points. Defense wins championships but offense gets you there. For the Steelers to advance to Dallas to play for this year’s version of the Lombardi Trophy, they had better have an above average passing game, an above average pass defense and tons of rabbit’s feet, a few cloves of garlic, and a 18-wheeler full of mojo.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected] or 412-583-6741.) Is it me or do you smell the aroma of “soul food” coming from the friendly confines of Heinz Field? Are the pierogies and collard greens finally having the desired effect on the Pittsburgh Steelers? The Black and Gold were thoroughly embarrassed at Heinz Field by the New England Patriots. They were partially embarrassed by a B-More Ravens offense that administered a Michael Jackson “Thriller-like” spanking at the house of “moo-stard” when the left side of the Steelers secondary played like a wax encrusted round of finely aged Swiss cheese. At that point the “home cuisine” did not seem to be quite spicy enough. There is one thing that is very noticeable about the Steelers defense. When they decide to sit back and play “prevent” defense, the only thing they stop is themselves from winning the football game. read more

Gardaí are appealing to motorists and road users to take care to be visible at all times during the high-risk summer period.With more people using the roads pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists are being urged to be seen and motorists are asked to be more vigilant.“Drivers need to look and look again particularly in their blind spot when turning, overtaking and at junctions,” said the Garda appeal. Ninety three people died on Irish roads in 84 collisions so far this year. Five of those were in Donegal.Road deaths have increased by 6 when compared to figures for the same period last year.The fatalies include 52 drivers, 10 passengers, 15 pedestrians, 10 motorcyclists and 6 pedal cyclists.Of the motorcyclists killed over the last 5 years (2014 – 2019) the vast majority were male drivers and the highest risk groups were those aged between 25 and 44 years. Gardaí say that the most dangerous day of the week is Sunday and are appealing to all road users to exercise extreme care during this high-risk period.Gardaí issue road safety appeal during high-risk period was last modified: August 15th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:road safety read more

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Jeremy Goyings, Paulding Co.We were hoping to get to beans the middle of the week here. We have one variety ready but it depends on what these rains do now. We had two or three tenths overnight and this morning t is still drizzling. It is a typically droughty summer with a wet fall so far.We did shell some corn on Saturday. We had a variety that was deteriorating and dropping ears and we wanted to get it done before we started on food grade beans. We took off about 100 acres at 26% to 28% moisture. The stalks were strong but we had an issue where the butt of the ear didn’t pollinate right. When the ears dropped on the ground you couldn’t tell which end was the tip or the butt because kernels died off on both ends. When it does that the shank dies off and the plants start dropping ears. It was mostly happening on the end rows and there were a few in the field. We only had 100 acres of that and we got it all shelled and now we don’t have to worry about that. The yields were in the mid-150s and it would be a silver lining if that is the worst we run into. We saw a little ear mold in the stalks we were walking but none in the field that we shelled.There is another chance for rain on Wednesday. We are still dry so the water is getting away pretty quickly. We have a lot of leaves hanging onto the beans yet. Some of our neighbors were running 2.8s and still had a lot of green leaves yet but they were running at 11% moisture. For our non-GMO food grade beans we need them all dry and consistent.For the rest of this week’s reports, click here. read more
8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market chris cameron Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… One of the major conclusions Gary says was drawn from this experiment is that for the next few years, mobile advertisements are going to play a large role in how expiring inventory is sold. For the Nets, this inventory was tickets to the final home game of the season. For other businesses, this could mean the last batch of doughnuts that is thrown away at the end of a day, or unfilled hotel rooms and airplane seats.But why only for the next few years? As Gary pointed out in our interview, soon enough, everyone is going to be using a service like Gowalla or Foursquare, and the novelty of the app combined with the emotional attachment of discovery will fade with time. The thing that separated this experiment from other promotions is that the people offered the tickets discovered them through their own actions, creating a sense of responsibility to redeem them. In the future, however, if everyone is using applications to find deals, the novelty of the game mechanics introduced could eventually dissipate.One of the major conclusions Gary says was drawn from this experiment is that for the next few years, mobile advertisements are going to play a large role in how expiring inventory is sold.A significant hurdles for mobile advertising is when a customer attempts to redeem a coupon only to be denied by an unknowing store clerk oblivious to the business’ mobile ad efforts. Gary says while this is a problem due to the relatively new nature of geolocation apps, only medium-sized businesses have to really worry about it. Small businesses with one or two locations and a handful of employees can easily spread the word of such a promotion, but a company with a half dozen locations across a metro area may have more difficulty. Unfortunately, this represents the majority of U.S. businesses.Examples taken from Twitter showed that the promotion with Gowalla and the Nets was well received by fans and helped to create new relationships between the team and its fans. One happy father even Tweeted about how his six-year-old son called the experience “the best day of my life, ever.” Clearly the integration of social media into a mobile ad promotion has helped to uncover some fascinating results about consumers. We also took the opportunity to ask Gary some of your questions about anything and everything, including managing work and family, following your passion, selling wine and – of course – his favorite football team, the New York Jets. Here’s what Gary had to say.Pete asked, “How do you maintain your ‘Crush It’ attitude and continue on the path to success while following the rule of family comes first?”Gary: Super hard. No question, by far my biggest challenge. I think it’s understanding the players. And what I mean by that is, just paying attention to what my wife feels […] It’s communication and making smart choices. Always filtering. The same things that excite me about the Internet – filtering and restrictions – are the same things for life, I just have to keep filtering.Renee wanted to know, “How do you overcome the fear of leaving a routine life to follow your passion?”Gary: For me, it was the fear of living a routine life. I think about legacy a lot, I’m a very big picture kind of thinker, so not taking chances and not being happy along the way just seems so insane to me. I’m very aware that everyone is wired differently, I’m nothing special. I’m just me. What I’d like for people to do is embrace more of the “try to be me” more than somebody else. I envy people that can sit down on a project and focus on it for ten years, […] but now that I’ve built that cushion, and that base, nothing wants me to do that. I want to scratch all of my itches – advise, consult, speak, author, do a show. Jason, a wine entrepreneur looking to use social media to be disruptive in the Scandinavian market, asked what Gary thinks of the idea and if he had any tips.Gary: I love the idea. My biggest tip is to keep your mind open to not just the wines you like. Don’t control it, let the pieces fall where they are, and make sure you hit as many demographics as possible. Don’t make it polarizing. Think about as many different niche markets as possible and don’t just talk at social media events, go to wine clubs and wine bars. Try to get as many people to embrace it as you can. And finally, Andrew asked Gary, “What do you think of the New York Jets’ Fight Song?”Gary: I bleed green. If I can like Jason Taylor, who was a former Dolphin and now he’s a Jet that I hated every day of my life for the last decade plus, then I love everything about the Jets.Disclosure: The author of this post is a Patriots fan, but that in no way affected his interview with Gary, a diehard Jets fan. Tags:#Interviews#start Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Last week we asked you to send us your questions for our interview with wine connoisseur and social-media expert Gary Vaynerchuk. Gary and his consulting company VaynerMedia recently ran an experiment with the NBA’s New Jersey Nets and geolocation app Gowalla (in which Gary is an investor) to see if location services could draw fans to games with free tickets. For all parties involved, the experiment was deemed a success, and the findings from it have provided a unique insight into the future possibilities for geolocationtional advertising.As you may recall, last Friday during the ReadWriteWeb Mobile Summit, we discussed the potential road-blocks for startups looking to innovate in the localized mobile ad space. By using an existing network like Gowalla, however, the Nets experiment actually succeeded to bring in a significant amount of people to a game where thousands of seats went unsold. By using Gowalla to check-in at local gyms, parks and other locations where supposed basketball fans might frequent, 38 users found and redeemed 1 of 250 pairs of tickets made available for the game. 76 of 500 (15.2%) of the seats offered through the application were filled directly because of the mobile promotion – seats that would have otherwise been left empty. These patrons instead paid for parking, merchandise and other concessions at the arena that would have previously not been purchased.VaynerMedia Case Study from Gowalla/Nets Experiment Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting read more
Have the correct pair of sunglasses. You can burn your retina spending hours in the sun resulting in solar retinopathy. Solar retinopathy can cause permanent damage to the retina and your eyesight. Look for sunglasses that block 99 percent or 100 percent of all UV light. Also look for impact resistant, polarized (sunlight bounces off the lens), medium to dark lenses depending on the amount of sun exposure, and a wraparound frame offers more protection from all angles.Food safety! Keep your food safe by packing it in an insulated container with a lot of ice or ice packs. Do not let foods stay out longer than 2 hours and if temperatures are above 90 degrees, not more than 1 hour.Have plenty of life jackets. The US Coast Guard requires one life jacket per person. Some states require children to be wearing a life jacket, not just have it available. You should also consider one for your pet. Our dog proudly wears her “Outward Hound” life jacket.Now that you have some safety tips also remember to have fun! We packed gulf coast steamed shrimp, turkey wraps, lots of fruit and veggies, cheese and crackers, deviled eggs, nuts and of course water.What are your favorite foods to take to the beach?Pensacola Beach Blue Angels July 2016 by Robin AllenReferenceshttp://www.superkidsnutrition.com/how-to-pack-healthy-snacks-and-meals-for-the-beach/http://www.webmd.com/beauty/sun/whats-best-sunscreenhttp://www.retinalphysician.com/articleviewer.aspx?articleID=109011.http://www.aao.org/eye-health/glasses-contacts/sunglasses-recommended-types.http://www.whattoexpect.com/first-year/keep-baby-safe-hot-weather.http://www8.nationalacademies.org/onpinews/newsitem.aspx?RecordID=10925https://www.foodsafety.gov/keep/events/summervacations/http://www.whattoexpect.com/first-year/keep-baby-safe-hot-weatherhttp://www.webmd.com/eye-health/features/how-to-pick-good-sunglasseshttp://www.uscgboating.org/recreational-boaters/life-jacket-wear-wearing-your-life-jacket.php.http://www.texasheart.org/hic/topics/hsmart/hydrate.cfmThis post was written by Robin Allen, a member of the Military Families Learning Network (MFLN) Nutrition and Wellness team that aims to support the development of professionals working with military families.

CC Flickr Blue Angels Practice by OkiGator taken Nov 11, 2011by Robin AllenI had the honor of watching the Navy Blue Angels perform in July from a boat on the Pensacola Sound in Pensacola Beach, Fl. I will also have the pleasure of watching the Air Force Thunderbirds on Lake Michigan in Chicago, IL. I grew up in Pensacola and have a cousin who was in the Blue Angels, so I have watched them all my life, usually from the beach. This time was especially poignant in the light of the recent tragedy of losing a Blue Angels pilot. The crowds were enormous, and as I looked around, I saw thousands of people, many on the beach, some on boats, some swimming, some stuck in their cars fighting traffic. We were the lucky ones who came by water. In our group was a nurse, pilot, and a few dietitians. So naturally, as we watched the show, we discussed flying, health and nutrition. I decided to write this blog on how to be safe and healthy for a long day out in the sun at 90+ degrees temperature and high humidity.Allow plenty of time to get to the show. I saw too many people still stuck in traffic in the heat while the show was going on.Water, water, water. Stay hydrated; you cannot have too much water on these hot days. The Institute of Medicine, National Academy of Sciences recommends consuming is 3.7 liters water or approx. 7 quarts, for adult men and 2.7 liters, approx. 5.7 quarts for adult women per day. People who are elderly, obese or who have other chronic health issues are more at risk for heat stroke.Be careful of your alcohol intake. Alcohol lowers the body’s tolerance for heat and acts as a diuretic, speeding up dehydration. It also affects the body’s ability to regulate its temperature. Alcohol can also raise the body’s blood pressure, increasing the risk of a heat-related illness like hyperthermia overheating and heat stroke especially for people with high blood pressure.Sunscreen, apply before you leave the house and reapply frequently. You need a sunscreen with broad-spectrum or multi-spectrum protection for both UVB and UVA. Most people will do fine with SPF 15 which filters out 93%UVB, SPF 30 Screens out 97%UVB.If you’re going to be exercising or in the water, it’s worth getting a sunscreen that is resistant to water and sweat. But this means that it is effective for only 40 minutes of swimming. You will need to reapply after 40 minutes. The sensitive skin of babies and children is easily irritated by chemicals in adult sunscreens, so avoid sunscreens with para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) and benzophenones like dioxybenzone, oxybenzone, or sulisobenzone. Children’s sunscreens use ingredients that are less likely to irritate the skin, like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.Get a babysitter! Especially if your baby is six months or younger. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends infants six months or younger should stay out of the sun. Infants cannot handle the heat or exposure, and many infants end up in the Emergency Room. Keep babies out of the hot sun with a canopy and do not overdress. It only takes 15 minutes for skin to be damaged by the sun. read more
