“This is the kind of standard that we are promoting. I’m very happy to see this particular environment well used. The facility looks very conducive to our precious infants, and I know that good work is being done here. This is the kind of environment we are trying to promote within our public schools,” the Minister said. Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, says he intends to establish an Infant Department at each primary school that is currently operating without one. Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, says he intends to establish an Infant Department at each primary school that is currently operating without one.Speaking with JIS News during a visit to Jack’s Hill Primary School in St. Andrew on Monday (January 15), Senator Reid said it is imperative for all primary schools to have an Infant Department attached, and to ensure that it is operating based on the 12 operating standards outlined by the Early Childhood Commission.He said the Infant Department at Jack’s Hill Primary School is a good example of what he hopes to see being operated at each primary school.“This is the kind of standard that we are promoting. I’m very happy to see this particular environment well used. The facility looks very conducive to our precious infants, and I know that good work is being done here. This is the kind of environment we are trying to promote within our public schools,” the Minister said.“The Early Childhood Commission has been pushing this with 12 standards (staffing, developmental/educational programmes, interactions and relationships with children, physical environment, indoor and outdoor equipment, health, nutrition, safety, child rights, interactions with parents and community members, administration and finance), so when we look at the facilities for infant schools, they are now similar to private institutions,” he told JIS News.Senator Reid said the Ministry has started renovating some Infant Departments at primary schools across Jamaica as well as implementing some.“We are using money from the Culture, Health, Arts, Sports and Education (CHASE) Fund to help establish these Infant Departments,” he said.The purpose of the Minister’s visit was to announce that the Ministry has approved $10 million in the next financial year, to pave a roadway leading to the school and to construct a perimeter fence. He said the Infant Department at Jack’s Hill Primary School is a good example of what he hopes to see being operated at each primary school. Story Highlights
Dame Helen Mirren attended this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show in her role as a Prince’s Trust Ambassador.She visited the Burncoose Garden, as well as meeting a Trust-supported gardening business.Since 2003, Prince’s Trust Patron Terra Firma Capital, has sponsored the Burncoose Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show where they promote the support they give to The Trust.Terra Firma Capital have been proud Patrons of The Prince’s Trust for ten years and their support has helped disadvantaged young people through The Prince’s Trust Enterprise programme and xl clubs.Dame Helen Mirren reflected on why she supports the work of The Prince’sTrust, after meeting Trust-supported gardener Dan Hallett: “I have been fortunate in life. I always knew that I wanted to work in the entertainment industry and was lucky enough to carve a successful career as well as have the support of my family.“Sadly, others are not so lucky. Many young people don’t have the support and guidance they need to create a future for themselves, or they’ve fallen victim to the ever-present youth unemployment crisis.“For the hundreds of thousands of young people out there who are struggling to get a foothold in life, the future can seem bleak. Youth unemployment can breed low self-esteem and sometimes even depression.“I’m a Prince’s Trust Ambassador and a huge supporter of the youth charity’s work because they believe every young person deserves a chance in life.“Not only do they help young people move into work, training or education, but they invest heavily in their Enterprise programme, which helps the hardest-to-reach young people set up in business.“This is why I was thrilled to attend the RHS Chelsea Flower Show yesterday as an Ambassador for The Trust. Not only did I visit a garden which is donating valuable funds to the charity – I met with a Trust-supported young person who has successfully created his own business in the gardening world despite the tough economic climate.”A professional soldier, Dan Hallett returned from Iraq after the birth of his daughter, physically and mentally exhausted. Suffering from flashbacks, he concluded the army was no longer for him.Once discharged, he went through a series of low-paid jobs to support his family. Around this time, his relationship ended leaving Dan with two young children to support.He struggled to get by, experiencing periods of depression and loneliness. Doubting his abilities, Dan had lost confidence and belief in himself.Things began to look up when he approached The Prince’s Trust for supporting in starting a gardening business.He went through The Trust’s Enterprise programme, which has helped 80,000 young entrepreneurs since 1983 with support from funders like RBS. This made him realise that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. With this support and funding, he managed to start his own business ‘Gardeners R Us’.Today, Dan is a different person to the world-weary ex-soldier he once was. His business is going from strength to strength and he has taken on 30 new clients in the past two months alone. Dan is also creating jobs for others in his local community, having already recruited three members of staff to help him grow his business.It is also incredibly inspiring that Dan’s main goal is to provide for his family and be a positive role model to his children.Dame Helen Mirren said, “It is stories like Dan’s which remind me why I’m so proud to be an Ambassador for The Trust. The economic climate has hit young people the hardest, leaving them exposed to low self-esteem and unemployment. With our help, The Prince’s Trust can help turn around tens of thousands of lives every year.”Source:Prince’s Trust

APTN National NewsENOCH, Alta.—An NDP government would invest $1.8 billion new dollars for First Nations education and ensure all federal government decision respect treaty rights, inherent rights and the principles in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), the party’s leader Thomas Mulcair said Wednesday.Mulcair unveiled his party’s Indigenous issues platform at the River Cree Resort in Enoch, Alta., during an Assembly of First Nations open forum on First Nation issues.The NDP is the only party with a full platform on promises for Indigenous communities and people.The party released its northern platform Tuesday which promises to add 50 communities to the Nutrition North program, which aims to reduce the cost of health foods in Northern communities. The party is putting $32 million toward the program.The AFN invited all party leaders to the forum, but only Mulcair showed up. The Liberals sent their Aboriginal affairs critic Carolyn Bennett.The NDP, which is currently trailing behind the Conservatives and Liberals in recent polls, said it would invest $1.8 billion into First Nations education over the next four years and $8.4 billion over the eight years as a result of an annual escalator.An NDP government would create a cabinet committee, chaired by the prime minister, to focus specifically on First Nation issues to ensure all government decision respect treaty rights, inherent rights and UNDRIP principles.The party re-announced its commitment to hold a public inquiry into the high number of murdered and missing Indigenous women within its first 100 days in power. The NDP is putting $50 million toward holding the inquiry.The NDP is promising $68 million to revitalize Indigenous languages and $8 million for the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation which will hold Indian residential school documents and survivor testimonies gathered by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.The party is promising to remove the two per cent funding cap on social transfers to First Nations along with investing $375 million in new dollars targeting housing, schools and clean water over four years.

ALBANY, N.Y. – A New York economic development agency report meant to show the state’s growth was illustrated with an 8-year-old photo showing construction cranes in South Africa.The Associated Press discovered the photo in this month’s report from Empire State Development. The photo, showing seven towering heavy-lift cranes being used to build a stadium in Cape Town for the 2010 soccer World Cup, is a cropped version of one owned by Getty Images, available for licensing on its website for up to $575.The photo apparently was used to give the impression of heavy construction activity in the state.Empire State Development said on Tuesday the photo was “a generic stock image” and will be replaced with an image of ongoing economic development in the state.“We thank the AP for bringing the matter to our attention,” the agency said.The gaffe comes as Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s economic development programs face questions over their effectiveness.Cuomo, a Democrat, said the programs have brought hundreds of thousands of jobs to the state. Critics, though, question those numbers along with the multibillion-dollar corporate incentives paid with taxpayer dollars.“Certainly sticking in construction cranes from half a world away isn’t going to build confidence in their credibility,” said E.J. McMahon, founder of the conservative Empire Center for Public Policy.The annual comprehensive report from Cuomo’s main economic development apparatus was mandated last year by the Legislature amid increased criticism of the governor’s efforts to boost business across the state, especially in distressed upstate areas. The report compiles the previous fiscal year’s statistics for each economic development program run by the agency. It wasn’t released until Feb. 5, 36 days after its Dec. 31 deadline.Included in its 127 pages of tables, charts and details of economic success stories are plenty of photos of people working at New York businesses and people visiting New York tourist attractions. Cuomo appears in several photos. Other images appear to be stock photos. None of the photos has a caption with specific information on it.The South Africa photo, taken from ground level looking up at the cranes set against a clear-blue sky, appears on Page 6 of the report. The next page features copy under the heading “Our Investment Strategies” overlaid on a second, less-defined photo of the cranes taken from a slightly different angle.Word of inclusion of the South Africa photos in a public state document came a day after the New York Post reported that the economic development agency approved a $1 million grant to Cadillac so the General Motors subsidiary could put it toward the $12.7 million renovation at its new Manhattan headquarters.Alex Camarda, a senior policy adviser at Reinvent Albany, a state government watchdog group, called the Cape Town cranes being passed off as New York economic activity “another example of a lack of transparency” by Cuomo’s economic development office.___This story has been corrected to show the report was issued this month, not last month.
Jamui (Bihar): Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday launched a scathing attack on the Congress, saying governance goes into reverse gear when the grand old party and its allies are in power. Addressing an election rally in Jamui where LJP leader Chirag Paswan, son of party president Ram Vilas Paswan, is in the fray, Modi accused the Congress of having neglected B R Ambedkar like no other party did. He also claimed that his rivals were spreading the canard that the BJP, if voted to power again, will do away with reservations for the backward classes. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “Governance goes into reverse gear when the Congress and its allies are in power. Terrorism, prices, violence, corruption, black money rise when Congress is in power; the country’s prosperity, its credibility, the morale of the armed forces, respect for honesty decline,” he said. He accused the Congress of having done everything to “defeat” Ambedkar, the architect of the Indian Constitution. “The Congress did everything possible to have Babasaheb defeated. It conspired to have his momory erased from the public mind. The ‘family’ remembered honouring its own members with Bharat Ratna but forgot Ambedkar,” the prime minister said.

Claiming that his detractors were spreading the rumour that the BJP will do away with quotas in government jobs and educational institutions if voted to power again, Modi declared, “Nobody can even touch reservations for the backward classes.” “We introduced 10 per cent quota for the economically backward people among the unreserved category…we did it without causing strife in society,” he said.
NEW DELHI: Delhi Congress president Sheila Dikshit said ‘the BJP manifesto was full of hollow promises and false claims without having any substance that would be beneficial to the people.Dikshit said that the emptiness of the BJP manifesto was evident from the reaction of senior BJP leader Murali Manohar Joshi, who was involved in the framing of the BJP manifesto in 2014, who asked about how many marks he would give to the Modi Government’s performance in the last five years, he replied that he could give marks “only if there was something written on the copybook”, which clearly proves that Modi’s performance in the last five years was only “non-performance”, and the manifesto for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections does not have a single meaningful, doable promise, as it was full of “jumlevaji”. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderDelhi Congress chief Dikshit said that the people of the country have now fully understood Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s falsehood and his bundle of lies, and the voters have now lost all faith in him, and his hollow promises. She added that the trust that the people had reposed in the BJP to deliver in 2014 had been completely shattered as the Modi Government could not fulfill even a single promise, and betrayed the people. Dikshit said that the people of the country would not believe in a single promise of the BJP manifesto for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections as the report card of the Modi Government in the last five years has been a big zero.
