Bolt Stands with Garvey and Marley – Grange

first_imgRelatedBolt Stands with Garvey and Marley – Grange Advertisements RelatedBolt Stands with Garvey and Marley – Grange Bolt Stands with Garvey and Marley – Grange UncategorizedAugust 20, 2008center_img RelatedBolt Stands with Garvey and Marley – Grange FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Sports Minister Olivia Grange said Usain Bolt ran himself into the league of the greatest Jamaicans of all time tonight by smashing multiple records in Beijing. She rated his performance at the 29th Olympic Games where he won gold in the 100 and 200 metres in world record times as comparable to Garvey’s seminal, philosophical impact on the world and Bob Marley’s iconic status as a music and revolutionary figure worldwide.She said: “Usain has placed himself amongst our greatest heroes. He has brought the name Jamaica to lips of billions of people worldwide. He has introduced them to a great nation and a great people. At this point, he is our greatest ambassador and he is not only taking our athletics into the mainstream, but he’s working overtime to ensure that Jamaican culture is recognized across the world. ”Bolt not only erased Carl Lewis’ 24-year record of winning both short sprints at the Olympic Games, but also rewrote Michael Johnson’s 12-year, 19.32 record in the 200 Metres by posting a phenomenal 19.30 seconds. He became the first man in history to break the world record in both races, having recorded 9.69 in the 100 Metres on Saturday.Minister Grange said Bolt had positioned himself to stand among the nation’s greatest achievers from all walks of life, with these results.“What we witnessed tonight in Beijing was extraordinary. As we say in Jamaica, ‘it nuh normal!’ We always knew Usain was going to be special in these Games but it’s hard to believe what we have been witnessing in Beijing. This will be taught in schools; it will be included in history books; Usain Bolt is a legend that will be part of Jamaican folklore for centuries to come.”“I wish him a Happy Birthday tomorrow but he’s so special that he chose his own birthday present. We often look on in awe at people from other countries doing astonishing things. This is the time for others to look at Jamaica and as Sports Minister I’m in a continuous state of euphoria in Beijing. I can’t imagine that it could have been better.”Minister Grange also expressed congratulations to Melaine Walker, who devastated the field to cop gold and an Olympic record in the Women’s 400 Metres Hurdles.She said: “Melanie came into these Games with a fantastic record. She distinguished herself as a champion. She capped the night when Jamaica reminded the world that great achievements come from our tiny island. Melanie has brought joy to so many people in Maxfield Avenue, Kingston, and Jamaica on a whole.“These athletes are not only showing the world that we are special but they are telling ordinary people in Jamaica that we can be what we want to be. Our young people have many reasons to draw inspiration from what we are seeing. We want to use these successes to reassure those who are already on the path to success and encourage those who might be headed in the wrong direction to find focus and share in the bliss of success.”last_img read more

Toxic strangler weed found in Bourke and Brewarrina shires

first_imgToxic strangler weed found in Bourke and Brewarrina shires Property owners and land managers in north west NSW have been urged to check their properties for the toxic invasive weed, rubber vine (Cryptostegia grandiflora), which is now being eradicated from four sites near Wanaaring, Yantabulla and Weilmoringle.NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) State Priority Weeds coordinator, Nicola Dixon, said people in the Bourke and Brewarrina Shire Council and unincorporated areas should check homestead gardens, yards, sheds, rivers and creeks for the prohibited weed.“We have found rubber vine which was planted in homestead gardens decades ago, triggering a substantial surveillance effort as plants could survive anywhere there is a water source and could have spread far from the original sites,” Ms Dixon said.“Please contact the NSW DPI Biosecurity Helpline on 1800 680 244 for assistance and do not attempt to treat or dispose of this weed yourself.”NSW DPI is working with Western Local Land Services and local councils to detect and eradicate rubber vine.As part of an ongoing 46,000 square kilometre survey of north-west NSW, between Tibooburra and the Narran River, 191 properties have been inspected for rubber vine.Rubber vine is a multi-stemmed shrub which can scramble up to 30 metres high in tree canopies or grow unsupported to three metres, forming dense thickets with dark green, glossy leaves. Its flowers are trumpet-shaped, up to five centimetres long and wide with five light-purple, pink or white petals.The weed smothers and kills other plants, invades pastures, waterways and natural areas and makes livestock movement and mustering difficult. It can reduce native plant and animal numbers and the water quality of streams.All parts of the plant are poisonous to people and livestock if eaten. Sap from the plant irritates skin and can cause burning, rashes and blisters. Dust from dried plants can cause irritation to the throat, nose and eyes.Rubber vine is a Weed of National Significance which poses a significant biosecurity risk and is listed as prohibited matter in the NSW Biosecurity Act 2015.Information about rubber weed is available from the DPI website. /Public Release.

Increased presence at sea deters illegal fishing

first_imgIncreased presence at sea deters illegal fishing Vastly increased offshore patrols, aerial surveillance and monitoring have ensured illegal fishing has been kept at bay in England’s seas since the UK became an independent coastal state on 1 January this year.With additional government investment of £32m, the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) has enhanced its surveillance and fisheries control capacity. It has more marine officers on shore, more patrol ships at sea, increased aerial and radar surveillance to complement existing electronic monitoring systems.Michael Coyle, MMO Head of Compliance and Control said:MMO activity at sea or on shore operates on a risk based, intelligence led approach and matches the seasonal pattern of fishing activity. Levels of activity are usually reduced during the winter months, but we’ve maintained our enforcement presence at sea throughout.During March, inspections are at a higher level than ever due to the increased capacity we’ve introduced. There have been 41 inspections so far in March; 15 of these were UK vessels and 26 were EU vessels.The overall intent is to enable fishermen to go about their business while MMO exercises control duties in a proportionate and reasonable way.While inspections at sea help the MMO gather important data that could lead to prosecution, such as incorrect mesh sizes, undersized species, undeclared catch – they are not the means by which the government acquires data on what is being fished where and when. This information comes from fishing catch, landing and sales records that all fishing vessels and merchants are legally required to supply.The MMO also works with partners including the devolved fisheries administrations, Inshore Fisheries Conservation Authorities and the Joint Maritime Information Centre to ensure a coordinated approach to control and enforcement across UK waters. This sophisticated intelligence network is operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week.The UK currently can also request data on EU fishing vessels to support enforcement efforts and the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement provides the framework for continued data exchange. There are ongoing technical conversations with the European Commission to rapidly establish a mechanism to allow sharing of this data moving forward. /Public Release.

UN experts condemn execution of Coptic Christian

first_imgUN experts condemn execution of Coptic Christian OHCHRUN human rights experts* condemned the execution this month of Wael Saad Tawdros Mikhil, a member of Egypt’s Coptic Christian minority, after he was convicted of murder based on an alleged forced confession. Tawdros was reportedly arbitrarily detained, tried, convicted and sentenced to death on 22 April 2019 for allegedly killing an abbot at a monastery. The conviction was upheld by the Court of Cassation on 1 July 2020. Known as Father Isiah at the time, he was subsequently defrocked by the church. According to information received, he was executed on 9 May. In a letter to the Egyptian authorities, UN experts expressed their grave concerns about the allegations of torture and ill-treatment of Father Isiah and his co-defendant. Father Isiah was reportedly detained incommunicado for 27 days, and subjected to ill-treatment and forced to re-enact the alleged crime.“We are particularly concerned by the apparent violation of due process and the abandonment of the highest international safeguard standards required for the lawfulness of the death penalty,” the experts said. “We strongly condemn the Egyptian Government’s actions, especially after directly appealing to the Government, and regrettably, no response was provided prior to the execution.“The execution was conducted in secrecy, which is a serious violation of the inherent dignity of the human person and, specifically, violates the prohibition of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment,” they said.The experts also expressed alarm with regards to the timing of the execution, taking place during the holy month of Ramadan, shortly after the celebration of Easter by the Coptic Church, and without duly providing notice to the prisoner or the family. According to information received, over 50 executions have already taken place this year: 17 people were executed in April, 30 in March, six in February and one in January.“The death penalty in retentionist states should be reserved for the most serious crimes, and should be imposed only with extreme exception. However, the prevalence with which the death penalty is being executed in Egypt does not demonstrate that it meets the most stringent requirements or moving towards its abolition.”The experts called on the authorities to end their systematic use of the death penalty, including against religious minorities, and to put into effect a moratorium on pending executions with a view to ensuring that all death sentences are properly reviewed. /Public Release.

Comprised of 90 one-of-a-kind lots, the live auction will offer members of the wine trade “never before, never again” wines from Sonoma County’s top vineyards and vintners, available in the market only by resale to their customers. The full descriptions of all lots are available online at sonomawine.com/barrelauction.The 2017 Sonoma County Barrel Auction lots represent the diversity of Sonoma County’s 17 distinct AVA appellations, from well-known regions such as Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma Coast, Sonoma Valley and the Russian River Valley, to Sonoma County’s newest AVAs, Fort Ross-Seaview, Fountaingrove and Moon Mountain. The auction has continued to attract new entrants, with 43 of the 115 participants in individual and collaboration lots new to the auction in 2017. A panel of seven Master Sommeliers gathered multiple times during the months of January and February to conduct blind tastings, ensuring that each featured wine is of the highest quality and varietally correct.“We created the Sonoma County Barrel Auction three years ago to showcase the best this region has to offer, and the 2017 auction lots live up to that challenge like never before,” says Sonoma County Vintners Executive Director Jean Arnold Sessions. “Vintners throughout Sonoma County have produced an incredible lineup of wines exclusively for the Barrel Auction. We view each wine bearing the official Sonoma County Barrel Auction label as a statement to the world of the quality and potential of our region.”Among the highlights for the 2017 Sonoma County Barrel Auction are several highly-collectable lots including an offering from Kosta Browne, “The Shire of Freestone.” As the producer of last year’s top-priced lot, Kosta Browne has doubled its offering from 10 to 20 cases with a blend from the Freestone Vineyard in Sonoma Coast, fermented in a range of vessels: from stainless tank to wood and concrete open tops, concrete egg and amphorae. The prestigious Williams Selyem’s “Sonata No. 3” Pinot Noir lot combines fruit from three of its prized estate properties, the Williams Selyem Estate, Lewis MacGregor Estate and Drake Estate.Several of the auction lots were created as winery collaborations. Notably, Winemakers Matt Courtney of Arista Winery, Mike Sullivan of Benovia Winery and Bob Cabral of Three Sticks Wines teamed up to produce a 10-case Russian River Valley “A Celebration of Saralee” lot which pays tribute to Sonoma County icon Saralee McClelland Kunde. Honoring the longstanding relationship between the Rochioli and Stare Wallace families, Dry Creek Vineyard and Rochioli Vineyards & Winery worked together to create “Iconic Sauvignon Blanc Collaboration,” a Sauvignon Musqué blend comprised of equal parts from the DCV3 Vineyard and the Rochioli Vineyard.Numerous one-of-a-kind wines produced by Sonoma County’s pioneers will be featured, including “A Tale of Two Winemakers”, a Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Gundlach Bundschu, comprised of winemakers Anne Dempsey and Keith Emerson’s favorite barrels from the family-owned estate and a Pedroncelli Winery field blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Sangiovese, “Noventa: Paying Homage to the Home Ranch” that the family has owned for 90 years. Those interested in the full varietal diversity of Sonoma County will be presented with offerings like Joseph Swan Vineyards’ “Russian River Valley Rocks and Sand (Rocksand!)” Syrah, and “Close, But Not Tannat” from SIMI Winery’s Landslide Vineyard.The panel of Master Sommeliers, who tasted blind, selected offerings from the following producers as their favorites: Benovia Winery, Dutton-Goldfield Winery, Francis Ford Coppola Winery, J Vineyards & Winery, Joseph Phelps Vineyards, Joseph Swan Vineyards, Linked Vineyards and Westwood Estate Winery.Situated on 92 acres of vineyards and landscaped gardens, the Vintners Inn in Santa Rosa will host the Sonoma County Barrel Auction for the third year.
