Additional unemployment benefits available

first_imgThe Vermont Department of Labor announced today that some unemployed Vermonters may be eligible for additional unemployment benefits. ‘We have been informed by federal administrators that Vermont will be eligible for the ‘3rd tier’ of federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) benefits. This means unemployed Vermonters who have exhausted their Tier 2 benefits may be eligible for an additional 13 weeks of Tier 3 benefits,’ said Labor Commissioner Annie Noonan. ‘Despite the continued decline in the state’s unemployment rate ‘ now at 5.4 percent – due to a seasonal fluctuation between December through March, we hit one ‘trigger’ that activated the additional benefits for some Vermonters.’The week ending March 26, 2011 is the first week payable for Tier 3 benefits. The 3rd tier of extended unemployment benefits (EUC) is activated when either the total unemployment rate (TUR) reaches 6.0 percent or more, or the insured unemployment rate (IUR) is 4.0 percent or more. In this case, it was the ‘Insured Unemployment Rate’ in the months of December through March of 4.0 percent that resulted in the extended benefits. As it is related to seasonal factors, the Department of Labor does not anticipate the IUR to remain above the 4.0 percent threshold for a sustained period of time. Overall, the total unemployment rate in Vermont continues to decline, as demonstrated by the two-tenths of one percent decline between February and March.Regular UI benefits provide 26 weeks of state benefits. Vermont meets the criteria for three tiers of federal benefits. Tier 1 provides up to 20 weeks, Tier 2 provides 14 weeks and Tier 3 provides up to 13 weeks of federal EUC benefits. In Vermont, approximately 1,100 unemployed Vermonters will potentially qualify for this 13 week benefit, resulting in a combined total of up to 73 weeks of state and federal benefits.The Vermont Department of Labor has 12 Career Resource Centers that will continue to provide Vermonters assistance with job seeking skills and strategies. For a list of the Department’s resource centers and other information, please visit our website at www.labor.vermont.gov(link is external).Source: Vermont Department of Labor.last_img read more

Corporate Sponsors Wanted for Young Athletes

first_img Tweet Share Share Sharing is caring! EntertainmentLifestyleLocalNews Corporate Sponsors Wanted for Young Athletes by: – January 6, 2020center_img Share 41 Views   no discussions Augustine Pascal of the Dominica Cricket Association says corporate Dominica is missing out on major opportunities to endorse talented sportsmen and women in Dominica.He spoke candidly with Dominica Vibes recently to say that several young athletes are making waves in the region and should have corporate sponsors to spotlight them while bringing profits to the organisations in symbiotic relationship.He referenced Alick Athanaze, Stephan Pascal and Earsinho Fontaine, all young talented cricketers.“[Athanaze] can do promotions on their behalf and [sponsors] can assist him in other areas of his development. There are other athletes who were on his team in Grenada who are looked after by corporate Grenada. Why can’t it happen here?”He expects that Earsinho Fontaine is one of those to watch. “We have other players like Fontaine; he’s very talented,” Pascal says.“These people have to be looked after. It cannot be all on the parents and the system; they cannot do everything. Corporate Dominica and the business people have to step up.”He says every sport played locally has its own prodigies who could benefit and bring benefit to businesses.Pascal believes sports endorsements will teach young athletes accountability and responsibility while creating a public image that is recognizable and inspiring for both parties.last_img read more

Serie A meeting Italian government to discover fate of season

first_img Brescia are sitting last in the league, and have nothing to gain by concluding this nightmare season. Torino president Urbano Cairo, whose club are 15th, would also gladly abandon the season. “I bow to the majority choice,” said Cairo, voicing his concerns over “the short time between the end of this season and the start of the next one,” scheduled for September 1. AC Milan’s Swedish froward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one of the big stars of the championship, has already suffered a calf injury in training, and could be out for a month. “I think it’s chaos,” said Italy coach Roberto Mancini. “If I were to speak only as a coach, I would prefer it to stop and start calmly next season. “There is going to be an endless series of matches and I don’t know what state the players will be in.” On Friday, the ‘Plan B’ will also be analysed at the Lega Serie A meeting, a format with short playoffs to determine the title, European places and relegation, if the season is again suspended, or all the matches not played. Another issue to be solved is that of players’ contracts and whether they can be extended to complete the season beyond its natural expiration. The issue of wage cuts also remains unresolved and liability in the event of illness remains complex. But one team who have been anxious to return to the pitch are Lazio.

We hope that the right decision can be made soon to complete this championship,” said captain Senad Lulic. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Serie A’s hopes of following Germany and Spain back onto the pitch will be decided on Thursday in a meeting with the Italian government which will determine the fate of the season in Italy. Italian Football Federation (FIGC) president Gabriele Gravina hopes for a return to Serie A  Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora will tell representatives from the Italian football federation and Lega Serie A if the health conditions are right to return to action after nearly three months. The season has been on hold since March 9 when it was halted as coronavirus infections spread rapidly in Italy. The pandemic has killed almost 33,000 people in the country. Clubs returned to group training on May 19 but competitive action remains suspended until mid-June. The indications are that Spadafora and the government’s Scientific Technical Committee will agree to both implementing a health protocol and to resume the season. If there is a green light on Thursday, Lega Serie A will meet Friday to examine “the different calendar hypotheses” for the remaining Serie A and Italian Cup matches. The league wants competition to resume on the weekend of June 13-14, starting with four postponed fixtures – Atalanta-Sassuolo, Verona-Cagliari, Inter Milan-Sampdoria and Torino-Parma. They hope the season will resume fully on June 20, with the goal of awarding the league title, defining promotions and relegations, before playing Italian Cup semi-finals, with the final in early August. The closing stages of the European club competitions could also be played in August. Three Italian clubs are still in the Champions League and two in the Europa League. – ‘Risking safety’ – But not everyone agrees with a return to the pitch and the packed schedule required with teams needing to play three matches a week, in hot summer conditions. Brescia and Torino, situated in the northern regions of Lombardy and Piedmont respectively, which accounted for nearly 60 percent of Italy’s COVID19 deaths, have consistently opposed to a return. “To finish this championship is forcing it in my opinion,” Brescia captain Daniele Gastaldello said this week. “It’s risking the safety of the players.”last_img read more

Super 16 semi-finalists decided| Santos down defending champs Den Amstel, GDF edge Buxton, Police arrest Western Tigers

first_imgSIX (of eight) days into the 2019-2020 edition of the GFF Super 16 Cup the semi-finals will be contested tomorrow night at GFC ground, Bourda.New champions would be crowned following the exit of defending champions, Den Amstel at the hands of Santos Football Club in clinical fashion, 3-0.Netting the final goal was Kester ‘Shoes’ Jacobs who had won the 2018-2019 championship with Den Amstel. For that matter, Santos current captain and central defender Kevin Dundas also won the tournament with Den Amstel.The match-ups on Boxing Night were anticipated to be exciting. The young Buxton United did take the fight to the Guyana Defence Force, but were guilty of spilling at least three chances in the first half which, and as has been the case ever so often not capitalising, came back to haunt them as the soldiers nailed them in the end.Santos ensured themselves a chance to challenge for the top prize by eliminating defending champions, West Demerara’s Den Amstel, compliments of a solid 3-0 win. The match that continued from Christmas night between Guyana Police Force and Western Tigers saw the lawmen put the Tigers away very early – Trayon Bobb scoring on the first run down) of the ten-minute affair.The match, which was the feature affair on Christmas night, had to be continued on Boxing Night due to problems with the lights at the Police Sports Club ground, Eve Leary. At that juncture, the score was tied 1-1 and the game was in the second half of extra time.Daniel Wilson had sent Police ahead in the 50th minute but Western Tigers found the neutralising goal on the stroke of full time (89th minute) via the penalty route, Andrew Murray nailing the shot.Daniel Wilson (right) and Trayon BobbFast track to Boxing Night, when the whistle was sounded to signal the start of the final ten minutes at GFC, the man starting the ball, Bobb in combo with Wilson and Pernel Shultz and teammates showed the energy and focus to score straightaway even as the Tigers were still getting warm.Western, somehow did not seem enarmoured to give it their having had almost 24-hours to recover. Their lack of capitalising on the moment cost them in the end.Police have now advanced to the last four and have earned a date with the Guyana Defence Force in a match that certainly has all the ingredients for an explosive combat.The Army was held under duress for some time against the young and exciting Buxton United but the Buxtonians can blame only themselves for letting their opponents off the hook.With the first half ending 0-0, it was Buxton who took the lead in the 61st minute, Omari Glasgow finally was able to find the target after a few misses – one of those, mere minutes before he beat GDF custodian, Enoch Carmichael.But Buxton’s goal only woke up the GDF side as they responded in like manner four minutes later, Benjamin Opara levelling things up in the 65th minute with his fourth goal of the tournament, the same as Fruta Conquerors’ Delon Lanferman.That goal changed the momentum of the match and GDF eventually sealed the deal with a Sherwin Caesar goal in the 90th minute.Santos, even though they were reduced to 10-men in the 69th minute, were still able to send Den Amstel packing. Ryan October’s second yellow card in the 69th minute after the first in the 6th minute, did not really matter as by then, Santos were already up 2-0.The battle was real as neither team wanted to give up any real estate in the final third which made it difficult for chances to be had. But Santos eventually found the opening in the 43rd minute, Orin Yarde pouncing the chance with glee to hammer his shot past goalkeeper Ryan Hunte.Stephon Reynold doubled the advantage for Santos two minutes into the second half and by then it was all over bar the shouting for Den Amstel. The sealer, which more or less rubbed salt into the wounds of the Den Amstel team, came off the boot of one of their own, Kester Jacobs in the 90+2 minutes.Santos have earned a date with Fruta Conquerors in the first semi-final tomorrow night at the GFC ground. The second semi would be a battle of the armed forces when the Guyana Defence Force throw down the gauntlet to their counterparts from Guyana Police Force.last_img read more
