Voters also praise President Granger and Opposition Leader Jagdeo for agreeing to the recount and their conduct supporting it since it began on May 6 and for utilising the interlocutor service of Mottley and Caricom to bring about a resolution. The nation also applauds the diplomats and governments of the US, Britain, Canada, and European countries for publicly standing on the side of democracy. Gecom chair Claudette Singh has earned kudos for supporting and overseeing the Caricom proposed recount and putting in abeyance the Region Four count as well as the fraudulent declaration. Aug 25, 2020 Some 63 per cent now give her a positive rating, up from March, with 29 per cent negative and eight per cent offering no view. Her negatives are attributed to distrust, slothfulness in the recount, and uncertainty over a declaration. Some 89 per cent believe the March 2 general election was free and fair. However, 61 per cent said the count of a particular returning officer was fraudulent and must be rendered null and void. Based on opinions gathered from the survey that reflects the demographics of the population, 88 per cent believes that observers from the Carter Center should be granted entry into the country, providing they abide by covid19 protocols. Some point to its presence in 2015 that helped with the certification of the coalition victory and muted acceptance of the results by then ruling PPP.center_img DR VISHNU BISRAM CARPHA: Leading the Caribbean’s COVID-19 Response – VIDEO CARICOM and UNEP extend cooperation on environment Singh’s poll numbers have been climbing ever since she gave an assurance in a sworn affidavit to the court two months ago to ignore the fraudulent count and authorised the recount.

WestSide Exits Galilee Basin in Queensland

first_imgWestSide said it has notified the Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Mines that it will relinquish its interests in ATP 974P and ATP 978P in Queensland’s Galilee Basin to focus on development of its producing Meridian SeamGas gas field.“WestSide has a unique opportunity to benefit from demand growth within the changing East coast gas market through the expansion of the Meridian SeamGas gas field at Moura, west of Gladstone,” said WestSide’s Managing Director Mike Hughes.“Further investment in the exploration of these challenging non-core Galilee Basin tenements is unlikely to deliver any immediate value to the company and would divert capital and resources away from our primary assets,” he said.A process to sell or farm-out the tenement interests failed to identify any other alternative to relinquishment.Importantly, the relinquishment will have no material impact on the results for the year ended 30 June 2014 as the carrying value of the tenements was written-off in the previous financial year.Hughes said WestSide remained committed to ongoing exploration within the company’s Bowen Basin exploration tenements ATP 688P and ATP 769P.[mappress]LNG World News Staff, March 18, 2014; Image: WestSidelast_img read more

Pinch point

first_imgThe stark comparison between new legal service providers and traditional firms’ approach to clients’ contact shows a way forward for all firms. In many solicitors offices there is a pinch point that restricts the ability of a firm to grow, the traditional solicitors’ receptionist and switchboard operator. In the past their job was to direct phone calls, greet visitors or send faxes. Essentially they turned people away, protected the fee earners and acted as ‘gatekeepers’ to the firm. That’s alongside some secretarial work that needed doing. Direct dial systems may have relieved them of some call handling, but in essence they have always been over stretched people with no time for anything else because the phone is ringing. Seen as a cost, occasionally difficult to manage or retain the right person, this front of house operation will become a significant problem as we move into a more competitive business environment. From the client’s point of view, how easy is it for them to contact ‘their solicitor’ about the current or potential matter? It usually goes something like this: a person calls a firm, the call is answered but the receptionist has no time to talk to the client and mostly cannot put the client through to the fee earner because they are busy. Potential client rings off dissatisfied and has to try again later or calls another firm. Reception has mostly been run on a ‘minimise costs’ approach because it doesn’t generate fees. Now there needs to be an alternative because clients won’t bother to call back or wait. Clients will pick the firm that engages them with a service that deals with them on their terms. Depending on the size of the firm there needs to be three, four or five people, trained and ready to answer the phone, emails or greet visitors. Each person must have the ability to confidently present the benefits of all the services the firm has to offer and have time to discuss these with the potential client. Whether you are a single branch firm or spread across a region your firm should have a separate client reception department that is responsible for delivering a satisfactory contact service with the firm. They need to be measured on and have targets for increasing the new matter instructions to the firm. All that will be seen as increasing costs. However, there are two reasons why this is an imperative change needed for firms. First, many of the new services being offered focus on customer service and immediate engagement with the client. That is, providing the client with substantive assistance so they have no need to go anywhere else. Your firm needs to compete with this offering whatever the cost. The second point is that a new reception for clients relieves the fee earners of dealing with non-profitable communications. Fee earners can then spend more time concentrating on current clients and leave the qualification of enquiries to a well trained client receptionist. And there is more. Once in place the client reception team provides a resource to take more non-fee earning task away from fee earners. They can follow-up costs quotes, make call backs for fee earners, make out-bound past client follow-ups and deal with promotional campaigns or advertising responses. All this adds up to capturing profitable enquiries, dealing effectively with no-matter enquiries, allowing fee earners to concentrate on current matters and a whole host of improved management measurement information. It need not be a radical change. Firms already have most of this in their current set-up. What makes the difference is re-defining client engagement in a way that suits the client. While the details in each firm may be complicated, a new client reception can be achieved if the partners concentrate on the main issue; capture profitable matter enquiries before your competitors do.

Interview: Eric Paslay on new single Heartbeat Higher and touring the UK

first_imgOriginally from Texas, Eric Paslay has become known as one of the most prolific singer-songwriters in Nashville.As well as his own Top 15 songs including She Don’t Love You, Song About A Girl and Friday Night, he’s crafted hits for the likes of Jake Owen, Eli Young Band and Rascal Flatts. He’s also a regular visitor to the UK – most recently during Country Music Week last year – and is due to return this autumn for the fifth time, supporting The Shires on their upcoming tour.As he prepares to release his brand new single, Heartbeat Higher featuring Sarah Buxton (who also co-wrote the track), I caught up with Eric to talk about the song, what to expect from his next trip to the UK and how he’s staying busy during lockdown.The last time we spoke you were over in the UK for the Long Road Festival and then your Nice Guy Tour. What have you been up to since then?Just working on new music, and sorting through what’s left over after the storm we had in Nashville last month. I’m not touring right now but getting to do a lot of shows online and writing online and all kinds of stuff. I think everyone’s figuring out a lot of new things, all the conference calls on your computer and everything. But it’s been a fun, interesting time. It’s been nice to just be home hanging out with the family. And yeah, rebuilding fences, replanting all kinds of trees that came down and trying to regrow good things.Your new single Heartbeat Higher comes out this week – can you tell us more about it?Yeah. It’s a song I wrote with Sarah Buxton. She is an incredible singer and writer, just a friend of mine, and it’s just a dream come true to put a song out with her. We wrote it with another guy here in Nashville named Zach Crowell, and wrote it a few years ago and ever since I’ve written it I’ve been trying to put it out and we cut a great recording of it. It’s the first song from this new project and it’s finally here. We’re finally getting to share it and I’m thrilled. I’m thrilled about it and I can’t wait for everybody to hear it.Did you always know it would be a duet? Or was that something that came out of the process of writing and recording the song?No, from the day we wrote it it just worked out as a duet really well. And it’s always been Sarah singing on it. It’s one of those songs where you get the demo back, you get the first recording of it back and drive round in your car. I probably listened to it 10 times in a row every day for a week [laughs] when we first wrote it, going, “This is really good, we should do something with this”. And nothing moves fast typically in the music business. But it’s perfect timing. We’re getting to put it out now and I’m thrilled about it. But yeah, when you hear Sarah sing you’ll go, ‘who is that? She is so good’.One interesting fact about it, a lot of people don’t realise this, most of the time when you’re in the studio the band plays, the singer might be singing with them as a scratch vocal, just to make sure we know where we’re at. And then you go back in the studio weeks later, months later, whatever, record it five, six, seven times and then they cut it up into pieces and they take the best performance of each line and that’s what you get. Like that is 95 to 100 per cent of the time, that’s how the vocal is done in the studio in almost any genre. I do that a lot, and almost everyone that you love does. And it sounds like it’s live and it’s the first one take. I’m probably getting behind the curtain a little too much right now.But the coolest thing about this recording, the vocal you hear of Sarah and I was done live with the band, while we recorded the track, and she and I loved it. It was just one of those moments of, “We just nailed that. Oh my God. We don’t have to sing it again, this is great!” [laughs] Like it should be done. But it was a really great feeling and I will never forget when we recorded this song and when we recorded the album. But it’s quite amazing and you’ll love Sarah on it and you can hear us having fun and having energy on it.The song is a slight departure from some of your previous work. Is this the direction you’re looking to go in with your new music?I don’t know. I’m a moody guy, I think. I don’t typically do the same song every time because not every day is the same, you know? [laughs] Hopefully not every date is the same either. When you go on a date with somebody you want it to be fun the first time, fun the second time and then you might tell them something deeper the third and fourth time. But you know, it definitely reflects a part of who I am. The whole album doesn’t sound exactly the same. I hate albums that all sound exactly the same [laughs]. I wanna be taken on an adventure. I wanna go on a road trip with you and hopefully I’ll take everybody on a great road trip and we’ll make some good memories together with this music.You mentioned it’s been a while since you wrote Heartbeat Higher. Do you feel your approach to your songwriting has changed since then?No, I think a songwriter phrase is ‘write what’s in the room’, and that means to show up with an open mind, an open heart. And if somebody says a line or starts playing music just go with that. You kind of see your other cowriter, or if it’s just yourself writing you feel yourself light up and you go, “what is this? I am intrigued to tell this story or even figure out what this story is, or what this melody is”. And I tend to always write like that. I might have an idea or I might have a melody showing up, but typically I just try to write what wants to be written that day. And that sounds so bizarre but I think it’s more proof that being able to write songs is a gift. That’s me not going, “Look at me, I can write songs”. It’s realising that it’s a gift and being able to use it well and have fun with it and share it with people.But I think over the last few years of touring more and all that I haven’t had as much time to write, so I definitely pay attention to the lyrics a little more. If it’s a line I would never say, then I might rewrite it if I really love the song, or if I know that the song fits me. If it’s a line I wouldn’t say and realise that the song doesn’t fit me but would fit one of my buddies really well, then I’ll keep that line in there. But there was a time where ‘d just write the line if it was a cool line and wasn’t aware if I would actually sing it or not. That’s just what I’d do. But occasionally I’ll rewrite the line if I think I might record it.You mentioned earlier about moving to online and live-streamed performances recently. Has that been a challenge for you to adapt to that compared to a ‘normal’ show?You know, it’s kind of amazing. You don’t have to wear any pants, no-one can see your pants ’cause you’re on a phone call on the computer. It’s great [laughs]. But no, it’s been fun. I’ve been writing a bunch of songs online and playing the shows, and I’ve got a whole bunch of shows lined up. It really is amazing to think people can just sit wherever they wanna sit and watch a live show from their phone or computer. It is kind of amazing. I think we have a whole new way of creating music.And thinking about when I’m over there in the UK, there’s some writers I love writing with. It’s always like, “man, I’ll be there in a year, we’ll write then”, and now it’s worth realising, “oh, we can write right now”. There’s something cool with that. Some of the people I’ve talked to think it’s a little odd if you don’t know the person and you’re writing with them on Zoom, but I love making new friends [laughs]. It’s fun. But yeah, I think everyone’s adapting to the whole new world of working online. It’s cool, but it’ll be nice to sit back down at a desk and a chair and hang out with people and actually share some coffee together.You’re hopefully going to be coming back to the UK to tour with The Shires in the autumn. What can people coming to those shows expect?I think if we’re allowed to do The Shires tour in October which hopefully that’ll happen – hopefully everybody’ll do the right thing and this pandemic will die down. But yeah, it’s so cliché. “It’s gonna be a fun great time, great music!” But I know inside of me I am just waiting to come out and tour. Especially having all this new music. I can’t wait. And hopefully by that tour my whole project will be out, so I’ll have however many – I won’t tell you yet. “There’s 38 songs!” [laughs] But we’ll have a whole lot of new songs and everyone will have time to actually learn them, so we’ll get to sing them together.But I am thrilled about that. And Chrissie and Ben are just amazingly nice, kind people. And they’re so good. The Shires are just so good. It’s been a dream of mine to tour that many shows, just in the UK alone. It’s amazing. I mean the pandemic, it’s happening to everyone but the biggest bummer to me was that The Shires tour got moved and I was afraid it was just gonna be cancelled all the way. So I’m glad that we got it rescheduled and I’m still able to do it.And I cannot wait to come back over. I love it over there. I love it here in the States too but man, I love y’all and I really love touring over there. I’m really looking forward to travelling to cities I’ve never seen before for the first time, and hopefully the first of many shows through the rest of my career.Is there anywhere you’re particularly looking forward to playing on that tour?Like every town is Disneyworld to me. Disneyworld just tries to look old, so it’s just copying what you already have [laughs]. I just love all the old buildings and the architecture and that you didn’t tear it down. You think of all the souls and the cool memories made, and the venues that we’re going to be playing. And then the towns, just all the history. There’s darkness but there’s also a lot of light. And every town we’re playing, I can’t wait to go walk the streets and hang out and eat some food and have a pint and some coffee and play some music. I just love everything about touring over in the UK. I soak it up and try to remember it as best I can [laughs].You’ve mentioned the new project a couple of times – can you give us any more clues about that? When might it be coming out?Hey, you’ve guessed well! There might be an EP, there might be an album. But yeah, we’ll be releasing songs throughout the summer. They’re in the queue, they’re waiting to be heard. We’ve been working on a lot of things with this music. And on Friday also the song comes out and the music video comes out. So if you’ve travelled round Europe you might see a little bit of Europe in there. Just really, really excited that music is coming out and excited that Heartbeat Higher is the first song to come out. I have family members that have known my music for forever who are just like, “we love your song so much! My gosh, when that choir thing hits, that’s amazing!” [laughs] It’s fun when people that know your music for forever get excited, which they’re always excited, but it’s exciting.Eric Paslay’s new song, Heartbeat Higher (featuring Sarah Buxton), will be released on Friday 8th May.See Eric live on tour in the UK this autumn with The Shires:October 21 – Corn Exchange, Bedford, EnglandOctober 26 – Academy, Bristol, EnglandOctober 27 – Princess Theatre, Torquay, EnglandOctober 29 – Brighton Dome, Brighton, EnglandOctober 30 – Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool, EnglandNovember 1 – Barbican, York, EnglandNovember 2 – Symphony Hall, Birmingham, EnglandNovember 3 – Sands Centre, Carlisle, EnglandNovember 4 – Bridgewater Hall, Manchester, EnglandNovember 6 – St David’s Hall, Cardiff, WalesNovember 9 – Regent Theatre, Ipswich, EnglandNovember 10 – Aberyswyth Arts Centre, Aberyswyth, WalesNovember 12 – Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone, EnglandNovember 13 – Royal Centre, Nottingham, EnglandNovember 15 – The Palladium, London, EnglandNovember 16 – Pavilion, Weymouth, EnglandNovember 17 – The Anvil, Basingstoke, EnglandNovember 19 – Engine Shed, Lincoln, EnglandNovember 21 – G Live, Guildford, EnglandNovember 24 – New Theatre, Oxford, EnglandNovember 25 – Victoria Hall, Stoke, EnglandNovember 30 – Sage, Gateshead, EnglandDecember 1 – Beach Ballroom, Aberdeen, ScotlandDecember 2 – Liquid Room, Edinburgh, ScotlandDecember 7 – Corn Exchange, Cambridge, Englandlast_img read more

Somalia’s Islamist group al Shabaab say they set up COVID-19 treatment…

first_imgSomalia confirms 19 new COVID-19 cases The Al-Shabaab militant group has set up a COVID-19 treatment centre in Somalia.Image courtesy: Associated PressSomalia’s Islamist group Al-Shabaab said on Friday they had set up a COVID-19 treatment centre in the country, and said the disease posed a grave threat, citing international health authorities.“Al-Shabaab’s corona(virus) prevention and treatment committee has opened a COVID-19 centre,” the group said in a broadcast on their radio Andalus, adding that the centre had been set up in Jilib, about 380 kilometres (236 miles) south of the capital Mogadishu.“International health organisations said COVID-19 is terribly spreading in countries in Africa.”For more than a decade the group has been fighting to topple the Horn of Africa’s Western-backed central government and establish its own government based on its own strict interpretation of Islamic sharia law.It frequently carries out bombings and gun assaults in Somalia against both military and civilian targets including hotels, intersections and checkpoints.In the broadcast a man who identified himself as Sheikh Mohamed Bali thanked Al-Shabaab for setting up the centre and asked those with symptoms to report to the centre.“We thank the administration who established the centre, we ask the people not to hide (the) disease to avoid spreading of the virus, people should report to the centre,” he said.Another person in the broadcast who did not identify himself said the centre is ready with vehicles to transport suspected coronavirus patients who call in seeking for care.Related Rwanda plans to deploy robots in COVID-19 treatment centerscenter_img Al Shabaab gunmen kill 10 at religious centre in Somalia attacklast_img read more

National Disability Council still not established

first_imgDAPD’s Executive Director, Nathalie MurphyOctober 1 marked one year since the Dominica Government ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, however the Dominica Association of Persons with Disabilities (DAPD) is still awaiting the formation of a National Disability Council.Executive director of DAPD Nathalie Murphy said, “The ratification by Dominica of the convention was to be followed locally by the establishment of a National Disability Council,” which will be charged with the responsibility to oversee the convention’s implementation here.Speaking at the official launch of the Association’s magazine Tuesday afternoon, she said they were very happy when the convention was ratified but after hearing nothing for about five month, wrote to the Ministry of Social Services, Community Development and Gender Affairs in January 2013.In response to their letter, they were informed by the Ministry that the process of putting the council together had started and that the DAPD would be “eventually contacted”.“To date we have not heard from them but what we have done as a board of directors is to write again and that letter was sent last week offering our services or assistance in helping to put this disability council together”.She said the council needs to be established and given work to do hence the reason for the Association’s second letter.Mrs Murphy said besides the council not being formed, a few things can be seen happening around the country where persons are making an effort to provide access in various forms to persons living with disabilities.“We hear of buildings that are going to be erected and consideration being given for providing access to persons with disabilities,” she said.Currently one visually impaired student who is a recent graduate of the St Mary’s Academy is enrolled at the new state of the art Dominica State College.“Little by little we can see some things are beginning to happen but with the establishment of the council we expect much more to happen”.She added that in one year, the DAPD would like to report that there has been the establishment of “at least a plan of action” being implemented.It is the hope of the Association to work together with the National Disability Council to look at some of the laws which may be discriminatory and formulate a National Disability Act to be taken to Parliament.Once a government ratifies this convention she said, a report must be given to the UN of the progress it has made since implementation.“We are hoping that something positive will be in place so that we can report to the United Nations as we are expected to,” Mrs Murphy stated.Dominica Vibes News 37 Views   no discussions LocalNews National Disability Council still not established by: – October 2, 2013 Share Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring!
