In an interview with Vibes News on Tuesday August 8 2017, Boston said the convention with took place on Sunday August 6 2017, at the Dominica Public Service Union conference room saw the attendance of persons from all over the country. Following an open session where a keynote address was given by Crispin Gregoire, Dominica’s former ambassador to the United Nations, a business session saw the election of a new executive to include a new political leader for the DFP. Kent Vital, economist, was elected as the party’s political leader taking over from Michael Astaphan. Dr. Samuel Christian was elected deputy leader, Johnson Boston chairman, Norma Cyrille deputy chairperson, Ashton Riviere general secretary, Annette St. Hilaire treasurer, Casey Defoe assistant general secretary and Curtis Augustus assistant treasurer. These persons he said were elected at the convention and the new executive will meet soon to nominate the other persons who will sit on the executive to make up the full executive panel of the Dominica Freedom Party.Boston added that although Sunday’s attendance was not what the party is used to in its hay day, enough delegates were present to move forward with the event. He also commended those who made the effort to attend. “Those who came made the effort because they came on their own, they were invited and they came on their own and I think that is commendable because we didn’t have to pay any money to bring them there and that was commendable,” he said. Meanwhile the DFP’s new political leader Kent Vital told Vibes News he is pleased the party placed confidence in him to be the new leader as this has been a topic of discussion for some time now. “I’ve been working with the party for a while to try to rebuild the party. In recent times we have been getting very, very good responses from the general public especially with our radio program, people have been hearing our message, people have been hearing that our approach is different and people have been seeing that we are bringing on board very good messengers. So this is the point we have reached where the party has entrusted leadership, political leadership into my hands and I’m very happy with that opportunity,” he said. Asked what led him to make such a decision to run for political leader of the DFP, Vital simply said his love for the people saying, “I have always said this is the country I grew up in, this is the country I love and cherish and I hate poverty and I’ve always said to myself I’ll do everything I can to help push our country to move our country forward. I didn’t necessarily intend to do that through politics all along but I also told myself if the day comes when my country needed me in the political arena then I would step in and I think I have been well prepared for that day having worked as an economist at the Caribbean Development Bank before that at the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank and even before that in Dominica at the National Development Cooperation now defunct, I’ve been well prepared for that.”Vital added that his understanding of economics as well as regional developments puts him a position to understand what Dominica needs. He said lately he has been involved in advising regional governments such as that of Belize and the Turks and Caicos Islands in preparing national development strategies, he also said he is very strong on sustainable development and strategic planning.“So I understand what constrains us, I understand and have regional experience on what it is that we really need to be looking at to get where we need to go and it’s my pleasure to work with a team, to work with a good team of men and women. Men that I found in the Freedom Party that are men of integrity,” he said. Vital continued that understanding is not all but also having what it takes to do the right thing. “What we want to do is assemble a team of men and women who have integrity, who are honest and who think well and these two ingredients together is what will take us forward. So I believe I have a lot to contribute and having met such men of integrity in the Freedom Party, I decided to join forces with them and offer myself to lead the party,” Vital said.last_img read more

Get ready for the 2019 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R

first_imgDocuments were filed to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) regarding the emissions output of the 2019 supersport machine. The new ZX-6R is heading towards the Euro5 emissions regulations and it is said to produce only half of the emissions compared to the previous model. As of now, no other details is being shared about this upcoming supersport machine but one thing is for sure; middleweight sports bikes are going into a whole new era and Kawasaki is one of the manufacturers ready to face the challenge head-on. Stay tuned to Bikes Republic for more updates.WorldSBK: Tom Sykes is leaving Kawasaki–Ads– It looks like Kawasaki is currently working on a brand new 2019 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R. Rumours on a brand new Kawasaki supersport machine is currently heating up as talks of the 2019 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R is currently underway. Based on a few key sources, it’s not just talk but Kawasaki is walking the walk with this one.First and foremost, a document filed by Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is probably the biggest indicator of the next-generation middleweight Ninja. Retaining its 636cc inline-four engine configuration, it is stated that it has the ability to produce half of the emissions when compared to the previous ZX-6R.Works from Team Green to make their sports bike more ‘green’ are all part of their effort to conform to the Euro4 emissions regulations. Due to this, rumours are also going around that the current power output of the ZX-6R at around 129hp might see a slight decrease for the 2019 model.This also suggests that it won’t just be an updated version but rather, a brand-new Ninja ZX-6R built from the ground up. Other possible details of the 2019 machine include:New three-way closed-loop catalystOverall weight decrease (estimated around 195kg)Reworked dimensions for improved agility (wider & shorter)More aerodynamic bodywork (aerofairings?)Updated electronics (possibly an addition of Inertial Measurement Unit or IMU)last_img read more

Respon Kisruh Tarif, Maxim Ajak Pengemudi Ojol Kompetitor untuk Bergabung

first_img“Sehingga hal tersebut menjadi keuntungan bersama baik untuk pengemudi ojol maupun pelanggan. Khususnya bagi para pengemudi ojol, order mereka akan menjadi lebih banyak penghasilan mereka pun akan terjamin. Ide kami adalah untuk membuat tarif ojol tersebut lebih adil untuk semua orang, itulah sebabnya tarif bawah dan tarif atas di setiap propinsi, harus menyesuaikan dengan UMR di setiap provinsi,” ujar Maria.Diketahui Maxim menetapkan tarif minimalnya Rp1.850 per kilometer dengan tarif batas atas Rp2.300 per kilometer sesuai dengan aturan. Bedanya di penetapan per empat kilometer awal Maxim menetapkan Rp3.000 sedangkan GoJek dan Grab Rp7.000 hingga Rp10.000Karena hal ini pelanggan GoJek dan Grab memilih untuk berpindah ke yang lebih murah. Maria menambahkan, pihak Maxim sendiri membuka diri untuk para driver dari ojol lain untuk bergabung.“Para pengemudi ojol dari kompetitor yang melakukan aksi protes sebenarnya bisa mendaftar dan bekerja bersama kami,” kata dia.Bahkan dia mengatakan, para pengemudi itu bisa mendapat penghasilan lebih besar bila bergabung dengan Maxim, sehingga tidak perlu melakukan aksi yang merugikan banyak pihak. Maria menambahkan, aksi para pengemudi ojol dari kompetitor lain ini sebenarnya merupakan intimidasi yang tidak dibenarkan secara hukum.“Aksi protes yang mengarah kepada kekerasan, intimidasi sampai persekusi sama sekali tidak dibenarkan,” ujarnya.Sebenarnya, pada 2 September 2019 kemarin, Menteri Perhubungan sudah memberlakukan Keputusan Menteri No.348/2019 tentang tarif ojek online yang terdiri dari tarif langsung dan tak langsung. Tarif langsung ditentukan pemerintah dan tarif tidak langsung oleh aplikator seperti Grab dan Gojek.Baca juga: Resmi, Tarif Ojol Naik di Seluruh Indonesia, Ini Dia Kisarannya!Kemenhub menyusun tarif langsung berdasarkan zonasi:* Zona I (Sumatra, Jawa, Bali kecuali Jabodetabek): Rp1.850 hingga Rp2.300 per km dengan biaya minimal Rp7.000 hingga Rp10.000* Zona II (Jabodetabek): Rp2.000 hingga Rp2.500 per km dengan biaya minimal Rp8.000 hingga Rp10.000* Zona III (Kalimantan, Sulawesi, NTT, Maluku, dan lainnya): Rp2.100 hingga Rp2.600 dengan biaya minimal Rp7.000 hingga Rp10.000Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedBelum Lama di Indonesia, Ojol Maxim Ternyata Berasal dari Rusia19/12/2019In “Basis Aplikasi”Di Tengah Merebaknya Virus Corona, Kemenhub Naikkan Tarif Ojol di Jabodetabek11/03/2020In “Basis Aplikasi”inDriver, Ojol Asal Rusia Hadir di Banjarmasin, Hadirkan Real-Time Deals10/09/2020In “Basis Aplikasi” (kompas.com) Setelah adanya penyegelan yang terjadi terhadap kantor ojek online Maxim, perusahaan ride hailing asal Rusia tersebut akhirnya buka suara masalah tarif murah mereka.

Micciche Introduces Bill To Close “Schneider Loopholes”

first_imgSenate Bill 12 was introduced by Senator Micciche after Justin Schneider, a case that gained national attention, after he served no prison time for strangling a woman to the point of unconsciousness and then ejaculating on her. Classify unwanted contact with semen as a sexual crime, which means perpetrators can be required to register as sex offenders for this crime;Require that strangulation to the point of unconsciousness is defined as assault in the first degree, which carries a sentence of 5 to 20 years; andEliminate credit toward time served for electronic monitoring for sexual assault convictions. Sen. Micciche: “In recent years, one outrageous story after another about criminals getting a slap on the wrist has dominated our headlines. The case of Justin Schneider, however, forced us to confront just how badly our criminal justice system has been failing victims and survivors of sexual assault. SB 12 represents an urgently needed fix to a glaring loophole, but it is only the beginning.” According to Senator Micciche this exposed some serious, long-standing shortcomings in laws dealing with sexual assault in Alaska: “Serious crimes were ignored and an inappropriate plea deal allowed the perpetrator to serve a portion of the sentence of the single conviction at home with his family. In a state number one in the U.S. for sexual assault, we are making the statement that there will be ‘no more free passes’ for perpetrators of such crimes.”center_img FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Senator Peter Micciche (R-K-Pen) filed a bill to eliminate the “Schneider Loopholes” in Alaska’s criminal code in sexual assault cases. Micciche says SB 12 will improve our sexual assault laws in three important ways:last_img read more

Johnson Still To Decide On Keeper

first_imgThe City head coach says it’s likely Fielding will miss the weekend encounter, after the City number one was substituted with a rib complaint against Brentford in midweek.Austrian youngster Ivan Lucic took over between the posts, but utilising the experience of Richard O’Donnell hasn’t been ruled out by Johnson.“There’s a decision to make there still,” the head coach told Bristol City Player HD.“Frankie is still uncomfortable and will have a scan today, but if I was a betting man then I’d probably say he won’t be available to us.“Ivan did well and made a couple of good saves. People will have to get used to his style because he likes to play out from the back and that can appear risky.“Rich got 90 minutes under his belt for the Under-23s on Monday and has the experience of all those games behind him.“It’s interesting one for me. I’ll sit down with my staff and come to a decision, if Frankie isn’t available.”Gary O’Neil continues to nurse a hamstring complaint and is 50/50 for the weekend, while Korey Smith is looking to overcome a stomach complaint.last_img read more

He was an all-SEC pick at tight end, but TCU (11-1) said it’ll treat him as a wide receiver during the bowl game.“I compare him to probably a Jimmy Graham because of the way those guys use him,” TCU safety Sam Carter said. “Sometimes he’s outside, sometimes he’s inside. He’s very fast to me, when I watch him. He blocks very well. So he’s a tight end mixed with a receiver, but he’s amazing.”Engram (who is 6-foot-3 and 227 pounds) has caught 37 passes for 651 yards and two touchdowns, finishing up the regular season with a monster five-catch, 176-yard performance in the Egg Bowl. He may need to put up a similar line against the Horned Frogs in order for the Rebels to keep pace with the nation’s No. 2 scoring offense (48.6 points per game).Was the Egg Bowl Evan Engram’s breakout moment?The Rebels have played the last month of the season without Treadwell (leg), and while that was a considerable loss it gave Sanders an opportunity to close out his career as the team’s No. 1 receiver. But he tore his ACL against Mississippi State, and will be watching the bowl game.That leaves, outside of Engram, Cody Core, Quincy Adeboyejo and Markell Pack to lead a depleted wide receivers group: at practice Saturday only six receivers had on red offense jerseys.Core is the most dependable of the group, having caught 38 passes this season (third on the team) and at least three in each of Ole Miss’ last five games. But Core’s only 100-yard game this season came in week 1.Adeboyejo quietly had a productive sophomore season in a reserve role, hauling in 25 receptions for 303 yards and a couple of touchdowns. His production has come in bunches; Adeboyejo went nearly a month without a catch midseason. Adeboyejo said confidence was an issue for him, but feels like he’s improved in that regard and wants this opportunity.“Stepping up is a big thing for us,” Adeboyejo said. “We’ve been instilling that in our heads since Laquon went down and when Vince went down we just knew we would have to compete even more.”Pack is the one freshman wideout that found his way into the lineup this season, but he’s been buried on the depth chart for most of the season and was primarily returning punts. Teammates have praised his progress and quarterback Bo Wallace likes throwing Pack the ball, but so far that has only led to 10 career catches. His role certainly changes now; he’ll start in the slot and go from playing a few snaps in four- and five-wide formations to most of the team’s 70 plays a game (on average).“We know we’re down some guys, but we have guys that are going to step up and fill that void,” Wallace said.Any one of them could have a big game, but the surest bet to emerge from the Rebels’ depleted group of targets is Engram — whether he’s actually a receiver or a tight end.“That’s the thing with this offense. It can be either one,” Engram said. “They can throw mein there to be physical at the line of scrimmage and throw up a block and try to open up a run and then split me out wide and run a post down the field.”last_img read more
