That’s according to Education Minister Petter Saint Jean, who made this announcement in an address to commemorate November as Early Childhood Education Month on Wednesday.“We are indeed on one mission to instill in our children from this tender age core values.”These core values he said will remain with them as they grow older enabling them to be a resilient people, overcoming the challenges of life as they continue to build our lovely nature island, Dominica. “We are on one mission to ensure that our children are fed spiritually to have utmost reverence for the Almighty God, to be able to combat all negative influences and to enjoy wholesome and productive lives”. The Ministry is also on one mission to ensure that children receive proper nourishment as the government aims at eradicating obesity on the island.“We are on one mission to ensure that our children receive the proper nourishment for their growing and developing minds and bodies while at the same time instilling in them good eating habits. “We are also on one mission to eradicate non-communicable diseases by ensuring that our nation’s children are engaged in some physical activity, everyday whenever it is possible and inculcating in them the love for physical development,” he explained.Mr Saint Jean indicated that the onus is on every citizen to ensure that children from zero to five years receive the foundation that is needed in ensuring that they develop in well-rounded youths and adults. Thus he called on every citizen to take time to celebrate the children and help in their nurturing as whatever “we do for our children today will in fact determine how well they manage this Blessed Country, Dominica”.“Let us make it a point of duty to spend quality time with our children. Bring back the good old days of going for family walks, going to the river or the sea, playing family games and telling family stories.”These activities, he said, not only enables children to be happy and learn to socialize, but it is preparing them to be literate. “When children engage in such meaningful activities, they always talk about them and they can later write about them and read what they have written. National activities to commemorate Early Childhood Month are district church services, today November 6, sports day on November 8 and family focus week from November 18-22.November 19th will highlight the men associated with the Early Childhood centres as it will be International Men’s Day, Universal Children’s Day will be celebrated on the 20th and Community Outreach Day will be observed on November 21st.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

A modest LeBron James praises the Bench Mob

first_imgWhile LeBron James was – as always – the consistent force for the Cavs throughout Tuesday night’s game against the Chicago Bulls, there wasn’t a peep from James about how he was able to dominate the Bulls’ defense. Instead, he praised the Cleveland Cavaliers’ second unit after their 119-112 victory.“Well the bench won us the game. They get the game ball for sure.”James had 34 points, 13 assists, four three-point conversions and quite a few highlight reel plays in his first start at point guard since February 3rd, 2005. In that contest, a 20-year-old LeBron James was in his second career season, yet played a masterful game against the Miami Heat. He notched 31 points and 10 assists against Dwyane Wade’s Heat.Though James would have three steals on both of these nights, there’s no other similarity between the last time James played point guard and Tuesday night. That’s not just because the Cleveland Cavaliers’ starting lineup of James, J.R. Smith, Jae Crowder, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson is superior to one with James, Jeff McInnes, Sasha Pavlovic, Drew Grooden and Zydranus Ilgauskus (I don’t mean to suggest Thompson is better than Ilgauskus was. though). It’s also because the Cleveland Cavaliers’ bench unit of Dwyane Wade, Kyle Korver, Jeff Green, Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye is better than a second unit of Eric Snow, Robert “Tractor” Traylor, Lucious Harris and Scott Williams.The Cavs’ ’05 quarter scored 9 combined points against the Heat (the Heat won 100-88) while the Cavs’ current bench 46 combined points against the Chicago Bulls. This is the third consecutive game where the bench has scored at least 45 points.That’s a large part in why James said the bench was responsible for getting them back in the game after they fell to 38-28 in the first quarter.“‘Jeff Green came in and gave us a lift when we needed it, when we started off slow once again tonight… D. Wade came in and found his rhythm.Got to his floater game. Got to his pull-up. Made some great passes. You see what Kyle [Korver] was able to do late… Even Channing [Frye] came in… gave us some great minutes.”James would score 12 of those points in a game that looked like their previous one, a game they lost to the Orlando Magic after giving up 36 points in the first quarter and going cold from the floor on their end. James would be the only Cav in Friday’s game to look like he brought his game from Milwaukee, scoring 14 of the Cavs’ 18 first quarter points.This time though, with Wade and Green taking turns taking the Bulls off-the-dribble on the way to the rim, the second unit was able to help the Cleveland Cavaliers claw back into the game. A Green conversion inside with 8:00 left in the second quarter brought what was a 14-point lead at it’s highest down to five points.Ultimately, James was able to take over from there as he found his stroke from outside (4-6), got into the lane at will, made plays that a lot of actual point guards in the NBA would only dream of making and also shot well from the free-throw line (4-5). After closing the Bulls’ lead to three points before halftime, the Cavs’ took their first lead with 9:41 left in the third quarter and never looked back.James is right in that their bench (one that outscore the Chicago Bulls’ bench by 15 points) was responsible for making key plays to keep them in the game and win a game that was much closer throughout than anticipated.He’s still being modest though.

PFD Discussions Are Now At The Forefront Of This Legislative Session

first_imgGovernor Dunleavy: “I made a promise to Alaskans that I would always follow the law, and part of that promise includes a full statutory PFD payment. The hope was this issue would be resolved in a special session last fall.” Governor Dunleavy submitted a budget amendment to the Alaska Legislature that fully funds the 2019 Permanent Fund Dividend. If approved by lawmakers this session, every eligible Alaskan would receive a PFD payment of $1,304.00 as called for in state statute. House Concurrent Resolution 13 commits to safeguard the investment of oil and investment wealth that our forefathers made, which has accumulated in the Permanent Fund over the past two generations. These benefits are seen not only in the form of dividends but also in providing for essential state services: paying to plow our roads after a blizzard, helping educate our kids, and hiring troopers to make our communities safe. The supplemental appropriation for the 2019 PFD totals $815 million and would be funded through the Alaska Permanent Fund’s Earning Reserve Account. The earnings reserve account’s current balance is $18 billion, according to the release from the governors office. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Both the House of Representatives, and Governor Mike Dunleavy announced different plans for the Permanent Fund Dividend on Wednesday. The house is looking to defend the value of the Permanent Fund, not only for Alaskans today but also for future generations, while the governor has proposed a supplemental PFD payout.last_img read more

Nitišs joins the ESmotorsport team on the Riga ‘World RX’ stages

first_imgReinis NitišsReinis Nitišs, the two-time European Rallycross Champion, will join the Lithuanian-based ESmotorsport team to enter the starting line of the fifth and sixth stages of the FIA ​​World Rallycross Championship in Riga on September 19 and 20.In 2018, the team of former European Autocross and Rallycross Championship Ernest Staponka ESmotorsport started the development of the Škoda Fabia WRX EVO Supercar, but last year the team already started in eight World RX races.” I have known Rhine for a long time and know that he is a fast, talented driver with a positive approach to things. I hope that we will be able to work together in other stages of the World RX, not only in Riga, ”says the owner of ESmotorsport Ernests Staponkus.Photo: ESmotorsportAfter winning the 2013 FIA European Rallycross Championship Super1600 test class, Reinis Nitišs joined the FIA ​​World Rallycross Championship, the first season of which was started in 2014. Until 2017, Jēkabpils has started in almost all stages, but in the 2018 season, Reinis returned to the European Championship, where he won the title of champion in the leading Supercar class, becoming a two-time European champion. In 2019, Nitišs joined the Gronholm RX team as a development pilot and during the season he also played three races in the World RX test – winning the third place in the Swedish stage and climbing the podium.” I am grateful to the ESmotorsport team for the opportunity to join this project. I think everyone knows that rallycross is very close to my heart, so it’s a real pleasure to return to the wheel of a 600-horsepower car. Especially if I can do it in my home race, in front of local fans, ”says Reinis Nitišs. ” I know that the team has worked a lot on car development and now it will be my job to check what has been done in real racing conditions. Of course, all the teams have taken steps forward, so we want to evaluate what we have done by comparing our performance with the best teams in the world. ”In Riga, on the CSDD Biķernieki Track, two World RX stages will take place at once, which will be a great challenge for both riders and teams.The information was prepared by:Jānis Unbedahtslast_img read more

Stephens cruises past Mertens and into U.S. Open quarters

first_imgNEW YORK, (Reuters) – Defending champion Sloane Stephens eased into the quarter-finals of the U.S. Open with a 6-3 6-3 victory over Belgian Elise Mertens  yesterday. Stephens, who has not dropped a set in four matches at Flushing Meadows this year, lost to Mertens at the Cincinnati warm-up last month but was never in danger of suffering a repeat as she wrapped up the win in one hour and 26 minutes.“(Mertens) beat me two weeks ago so I knew that I had to come here and fight and do my best,” Stephens said in. “I played a solid match so I couldn’t really ask for any more.”The American struck 17 winners and controlled play from the baseline, ran relentlessly to extend the points, dominated in the longer rallies and was also helped by her opponent’s struggles on serve. Overall, Mertens won just 46 percent of her first serve points and faced nine break points, losing five of them.Stephens by comparison won 73 percent of her first serves and saved four of the six break points she faced, while also making 10 fewer unforced errors than her opponent.Next up for Stephens, who at number three is the highest seed left in the women’s draw, is a repeat of last year’s quarter-final against Latvian Anastasija Sevastova.last_img read more

Watch the new “Justice League” trailer featuring the team in action

first_img© 2016 WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC. AND RATPAC-DUNE ENTERTAINMENT LLC(NEW YORK) — The wait is over. After a week of teases from director Zack Snyder and others, we have a full Justice League trailer to complement the one we got last year at Comic-Con.The new clip starts off with what we already know. “We have to be ready … there’s an attack coming from far away,” Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne says on his hunt to find other heroes.Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman says, “Not coming Bruce, it’s already here.”The trailer then delves into Batman recruiting the other eventual members of the League, including Cyborg, the Flash and Aquaman. We also finally get to see the team in action against Darkseid’s minions.A few newcomers make their first appearance as well, including Amber Heard’s Mera and J.K. Simmons’ Commissioner Gordon, along with some familiar faces like Amy Adams’ Lois Lane.The trailer builds on a previous clip that shows Bruce Wayne searching for heroes to unite against the impending arrival of a villain whom fans know is Darkseid. “A war is coming,” Wayne has said, and he needs the Justice League to protect the world.If you recall, Superman was killed at the end of Dawn of Justice, but there’s hope that he will return soon — remember the floating dirt.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
