We’re just a few days from Christmas, which means that by now, you’ve likely heard every holiday-themed song out there at least a dozen times. But which are the best? We’re here to let you know.Of course, everyone will have a different list. Let us know what you think.10. Andy Williams – It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The YearRecorded in 1963, it was by far Williams’ biggest hit. But it wasn’t even the promotional single on his Christmas album – instead, White Christmas got the nod. Whoops.9. Jose Feliciano – Feliz NavidadFeliz Navidad, recorded in 1970, might be the simplest Christmas song out there – there aren’t really even any verses. But it’s upbeat and fun, and the back-and-forth between English and Spanish makes it unlike any other Christmas classic.8. Bruce Springsteen – Santa Claus Is Comin’ To TownProbably the most controversial inclusion on the list. Some people love Bruce, some people don’t see what the big deal is. Regardless, his live take on this classic is one for the ages. Recorded in 1980, released in 1981.7. Brenda Lee – Rockin’ Around The Christmas TreeYou likely haven’t attended a “Christmas party hop” in your lifetime, but back in 1958, that was apparently the thing to do. Brenda Lee’s half-a-century-old classic still holds up today, regardless. 6. Bing Crosby – White ChristmasFun fact – Bing Crosby’s version of White Christmas, according to Guinness World Records, is the best-selling single of all-time. But he didn’t write it – that distinction belongs to Irving Berlin. Crosby originally released it in 1942.Next: Songs 5 – 1 >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 read more
Director of Safety and Security in the Unit, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Coleridge Minto, who made the disclosure at the opening of the ‘Chance, Choice, Change’ (Triple C) Day Camp on September 19 at the Caymanas Golf and Country Club, St. Catherine, said 30 walk-through scanners have also been secured for this school year, up from five in 2017. Story Highlights As part of its violence-prevention and early intervention efforts, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, through its Safety and Security in Schools Unit, has secured 500 metal detectors for the 2018/19 school year, up from the 130 detectors procured in 2017. The equipment was secured through the Ministry’s partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), which has provided US$3 million in funding under the Safe Schools Programme (SSP). As part of its violence-prevention and early intervention efforts, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, through its Safety and Security in Schools Unit, has secured 500 metal detectors for the 2018/19 school year, up from the 130 detectors procured in 2017.Director of Safety and Security in the Unit, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Coleridge Minto, who made the disclosure at the opening of the ‘Chance, Choice, Change’ (Triple C) Day Camp on September 19 at the Caymanas Golf and Country Club, St. Catherine, said 30 walk-through scanners have also been secured for this school year, up from five in 2017.The equipment was secured through the Ministry’s partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), which has provided US$3 million in funding under the Safe Schools Programme (SSP).Mr. Minto said funding has also been provided for perimeter fencing, cameras, capacity-building training and support to uniformed groups in schools.He noted that the introduction of these measures is part of a multifaceted approach by the Ministry to create a safe school environment.“The SSP involves a paradigm shift in the area of student behaviour and discipline. It emphasises prevention and early intervention strategies in dealing with the social, emotional and behavioural difficulties experienced by some students,” ASP Minto explained.One of the strategies is the behaviour modification camp, ‘Chance, Choice and Change’, which commenced during the summer. It targets students in school, aged 15 to 18, who have been in conflict with the law and are on probation.Speaking with JIS News, State Minister for Education, Youth and Information, Hon. Floyd Green, lauded the initiative and said the Ministry remains committed to finding creative solutions to address the issue of deviant behaviour among youth.“It is a great model for expanding our reach. Targeting probationers is a very good drive because we have always said we can’t just focus on in-school youth; we have to focus on out-of-school youth as well. The truth is, young people interact, and when you treat with probationers and you get them on the right track… they can then become models and mentors for other young people,” he said.“There is nothing more powerful than seeing a youngster who has made a mistake and has now turned his/her life around,” the State Minister added.Mr. Green said the Ministry will be working with the Ministry of National Security and the HEART Trust/NTA to monitor these young persons to see the impact that the camp has had and to provide additional support to keep them positively engaged.The camp forms part of the activities for Anti-Gang Week 2018, which is being observed from September 16 to 21under the theme ‘Gang Life Equals No Life’.It is organised by the Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime (C-TOC) Branch of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), in collaboration with the Safety and Security in Schools Unit and the Department of Correctional Services. read more
Lunenburg County residents will now have improved access to wildlife resources, permits, fishing licenses, food protection information, physical activity, sport and recreation programs, and many other government services with the opening of a new provincial building in the Town of Lunenburg. Finance Minister Michael Baker, on behalf of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister Murray Scott, and Lunenburg Mayor Laurence Mawhinney cut the ribbon to officially open the new offices today, July 25. “We are pleased to have this modern new facility to serve the people of Lunenburg County, a building which as been designed to blend in with the architecture of the Town of Lunenburg,” said Mr. Baker. “It’s a welcome improvement to the services and infrastructure in the community.” The building will house local offices for the departments of Natural Resources, Agriculture, Health Promotion and Protection, Fisheries and Aquaculture, Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal, and Emergency Management Office. “This facility is a wonderful addition to the Town and I welcome provincial government employees to Lunenburg,” said Mayor Mawhinney. The $6.6-million, 16,000 square-foot facility is located at 312 Green St. and was designed by Harvey & MacKenzie Architects. Land for the building was provided by the Town of Lunenburg. The building includes a public reception area, office space for the various departments, and meeting rooms for staff and clients. A new depot for Department of Natural Resources vehicles has also been constructed next to the facility. The provincial building was designed to meet the standards of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System. The system is the nationally accepted benchmark for design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings and the provincial building will be submitted for formal certification. “With this opening, Nova Scotians will be able to access many important programs and services in a well-designed, high quality and environmentally friendly facility,” said Mr. Baker. The Bridgewater offices will close at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, July 25, and will re-open on Monday, July 28, at 8:30 a.m. An open house for the public will be held in September. read more
13 September 2011While the upcoming elections provide an opportunity to consolidate Liberia’s hard-won peace, the country will continue to need international support, particularly in strengthening its security institutions, the United Nations envoy to the West African nation said today. While the upcoming elections provide an opportunity to consolidate Liberia’s hard-won peace, the country will continue to need international support, particularly in strengthening its security institutions, the United Nations envoy to the West African nation said today.The presidential and legislative polls scheduled for 11 October are the second elections since the end of the country’s decade-long war eight years ago, but they are the first being organized and run by the Liberians.“If the elections are successful, it does not mean that the work is finished,” Ellen Margrethe Løj, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), told the Security Council.“Liberians will still require considerable assistance and support in rebuilding their lives and their country. This process will have to continue to be a joint undertaking between Liberians and the international community,” she stated.Briefing the 15-member Council on the latest developments, Ms. Løj said that planning for the elections and addressing developments along the border with Côte d’Ivoire amid the post-election crisis that took place there have been the focus of the country’s security institutions for many months.At the same time, planning for the handover of security responsibilities from UNMIL to national institutions has continued, albeit slowly due to the challenges of the last few months, she pointed out. “But planning for transition is just the first step,” she said. “The Government and the international community will have to continue to build the capacity of the security sector to prepare for the actual handover of security responsibilities.”In this connection, she reported that the completion of the first of five planned regional justice and security hubs, in Gbarnga, is expected by the end of this year. It will begin some functions even before that with the deployment of 70 police support officers before the elections. “The hubs will be a critical step in effectively decentralizing rule of law and security agencies and increasing access to justice and security in distant parts of the country,” Ms. Løj said, while also underlining the importance of donor support in establishing the hubs.The first hub in Gbarnga will be fully financed by the UN Peacebuilding Fund and it is expected that the entire compound will be ready by the end of the year, Ambassador Zeid Raad Zeid Al Hussein of Jordan, who serves as chair of the UN Peacebuilding Commission’s country-specific configuration for Liberia, told the Council.Liberia is one of six countries – along with Burundi, the Central African Republic (CAR), Guinea, Guinea-Bissau and Sierra Leone – currently on the agenda of the Commission, which was set up in 2005 to help countries emerging from conflict make an irreversible transition from war to sustainable peace. Countries can also avail themselves of financial assistance from the Peacebuilding Fund to jump-start rebuilding projects.Prince Zeid added that it was clear from the Commission’s visit in June that the Liberian National Police, “notwithstanding some very notable improvements in training and some infrastructure, will not be ready any time soon to cope with either a possible increase in the levels of organized crime, nor with any sudden spasms of widespread violence, unless it is more robustly supported.”In her briefing, Ms. Løj also reported that the country has continued to recover economically, with a number of new economic concessions approved and international investment continuing to increase. A number of pieces of important legislation have been passed, and the 2011-2012 national budget is almost eight times the size of what it was six years ago.“While economic recovery and development is crucial for attaining long-term sustainable peace, in the coming months, all eyes will be focused on Liberia’s elections and the country’s ability to pull off a national event of that magnitude,” said Ms. Løj. read more
Target Logistics, the global provider of remote workforce accommodations, and its parent, Algeco Scotsman, the leading global business services provider of modular space, secure portable storage solutions and remote workforce accommodations, recently announced the acquisition of Chard Camp Catering Service, a Canadian provider of remote workforce housing and catering services. Chard was acquired by a Canadian subsidiary of Algeco Scotsman and will be led and managed by Target Logistics. Chard owns and operates a 278-bed open camp located on Highway 881 at kilometre marker 242 (about 40 km south of Anzac and 88 km south of Fort McMurray). The facility has significant space for future expansion to accommodate the region’s fast-growing steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) operations.“This transaction represents a strategic acquisition for Algeco Scotsman and Target Logistics and marks the beginning of our expansion into the rapidly expanding Canadian remote accommodation management segment. This business complements our existing accommodation, office, and storage leasing and sale business, broadening our offering to this attractive market,” said Jean-Marc Germain, President and Chief Executive Officer for Algeco Scotsman. “We are excited to bring our turnkey product and service offering to the Canadian oil sands,” stated Brian Lash, Founder and Chief Executive Officer for Target Logistics. “Canada’s energy and resource sectors are very dynamic and present a significant growth opportunity for Target Logistics. As in every region in which we operate, Target Logistics is committed to creating meaningful and lasting relationships with the local community.” With the addition of Chard, Target Logistics operates 17 properties in the US, Canada and Mexico with more than 5,500 total beds.Target Logistics became the largest remote workforce housing provider in the US by focusing on workforce productivity, causing it to deliver a positive return on investment for its clients. “The perfect balance of superior nutrition, home-style comfort, recreation, entertainment, fitness amenities and lodge security make up what Target Logistics coined The Economics of Comfort,” said Lash. “Our approach results in greater productivity, lower attrition, enhanced morale and improved safety in the workplace. Our most important job is making sure that our guests are well-prepared to do theirs.” Current guests of Chard will notice property and service improvements. Significant renovations are being planned for the future, including new rooms and amenities, a new kitchen, a new dining room and recreation facilities. Chard was acquired from its former shareholders at a total enterprise value of C$10.8 million. read more

NETFLIX HAS GIVEN its TV app a major update as it aims to get more people using its service on their televisions.The update means that the majority of those watching Netflix on a Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, or future smart TV and Blu-Ray players will be greeted with the same look across devices. Before the change, the app looked differently depending on what type of device you were using, but the new update means that it will be the same across most devices. Xbox One and Apple TV users, however, will get their own look app, while Wii and Wii U users have yet to find out whether the update will reach them.Navigating between titles has been made easier and browsing any show or movie will present three large images, providing more context about a show or movie.(Video: Netflix/YouTube)Along with improved search, while personalised recommendations is still based on what your friends are watching, your viewing history and the type of shows you watch.Other updates include voice support for Xbox 360, pointer based navigation for Smart TVs and a redesign of post-play, the feature that automatically starts the next episode or shows recommendations after finishing watching a show or movie.The update is being rolled out today and Netflix expects that it will take two weeks for the update to reach all devices. The service has 40 million users, 150,000 based in Ireland, and over a billion hours of movies and TV shows are watched per month.Read: Netflix to take on Hollywood with original movies >Read: 9 series on Netflix which might have passed you by > read more
Harry Potter continues to be a massive draw for kids and adults alike even though the series has now been completed and the movies released. It’s the books that garner the most interest though, and J.K. Rowling decided to take a different approach to releasing them in digital form.Rather than just releasing them as ebooks through a range of online stores, it was announced last year that the Harry Potter series would be available exclusively through a new service called Pottermore. It promised to offer more detail about the Harry Potter universe including exclusive new content alongside the books and audio books.Yesterday, Pottermore made the Harry Potter ebooks available for purchase and download. They cost between $7.99 and $9.99 each or you can opt to buy them all as a bundle for $57.54. All the books are compatible with popular e-readers like the Kindle, but you have to go through Pottermore to get access to them. Even Amazon redirects you there instead of its more typical “Add to Cart” button.Such a system of purchasing the digital books does allow Rowling and her publisher to retain more control over the work. However, for consumers it also brings with it a number of undesirable restrictions.The terms and conditions on Pottermore are quite extensive, but there’s a few standout terms that may upset digital book buyers. The first is a limit on how many times you can download each book. Purchasing Harry Potter limits you to just 8 downloads per book before you need to repurchase them. That may seem like a lot, but why is there a limit at all? And if you change ereaders often in the coming years, or want to read across multiple devices, you’ll soon use them up.The other concern regards your Pottermore account being deleted or suspended. If it remains inactive for 6 months the account can be removed, meaning it’s possible you’ll lose access to the books you paid for. I can see this happening if a parent buys the books for their child who then goes off to read them on their tablet or ereader. Not returning for 6 months when you have 7 volumes to read is a real possibility. Hopefully Pottermore is very flexible on this issue and will allow any dormant accounts to be reactivated with an email to support.Unfortunately you have little choice if you want to own the digital versions of the books. Pottermore is the only place to offer them, and therefore you have to accept these restrictive terms. That’s unlikely to impact sales though, with the digital versions of the popular books sure to bring a spike in revenue as kids everywhere demand Potter on their e-readers.Read more at Amazon, via VentureBeat read more
Diaspora : un réseau social victime de multiples faillesÉtats-Unis – A peine ouvert au public, Diaspora doit faire face à un problème d’envergure. Divers virus et malwares ont en effet déjà investi le réseau social.Diaspora est opérationnel malgré quelques réglages à effectuer avant de permettre au site de fonctionner à plein régime. Mais les quatre étudiants à l’origine du projet, qui veulent faire de ce réseau une plate-forme ouverte et indépendante, ont eu la mauvaise surprise de constater que leur réseau social fourmille de virus et de malwares. A l’heure actuelle, un utilisateur de Diaspora peut ainsi voir son compte modifié, des faux amis se joindre à lui ou certaines de ses photos être supprimées. Prévue pour octobre, la version alpha du réseau social pourrait prendre du retard si ces problèmes ne sont pas corrigés rapidement.Le 20 septembre 2010 à 11:35 • Emmanuel Perrin read more

The Manchester United midfielder, who was acquired for 89 million pounds, has been lately fighting to prove his worth as his relationship with Mourinho fell off, he has been underperforming and can only hope to keep his place in the starting squad for his country.Critics slammed Pogba for his ‘Pogseries’ which will be following the World Cup and has been told to keep his focus on playing football, not documenting it, according to the Mirror.He was dropped out of the starting XI in Manchester by Mourinho mostly due to his inconsistency throughout the whole season.Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…In his last appearance for his national team on Friday, he exhibited a poor display even after coming up as a substitute, which might be the reason he will miss the next games with his national team as well.The first episode of the criticized series aired just hours after France lost 3-2 to Colombia and contained Pogba interviewing his fellow countryman Antoine Griezmann. read more
Steve Stuart, the lone Democrat on the Board of Clark County Commissioners, hasn’t spoken much lately about his political future.In fact, while sitting on a board that has spent most of the year locked into a rancorous game of partisan political warfare, Stuart has made it a point to avoid the will-he-or-won’t-he discussion surrounding his decision on whether to run for re-election in 2014.But that doesn’t mean he’s not thinking about it.“I’ll be thinking about it a lot here,” Stuart said last week. “I have been thinking about it a lot. I’ll take the holidays to evaluate it and I will make my decision in January.”And that is where Stuart leaves the discussion. He won’t go on the record about what will factor in to that decision, or if he’s leaning one way or the other.But even as he avoids the talk, he still has found himself in the thick of a campaign against the policies of his fellow commissioners led by freshman Republican David Madore.That battle may be a sign that Clark County politics is at a tipping point.Madore’s choiceThe politicking began just days into 2013 when Madore publicly announced on Facebook that state Rep. Paul Harris, R-Vancouver, would run to replace Stuart come the 2014 election. read more
NORTH MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) – A no-swim advisory remains in place in parts of Miami-Dade County after a leak in a wastewater line led to a massive sewage spill at Oleta River State Park in North Miami Beach.Officials said more than a million gallons of sewage are polluting waterways in the area after last weekend’s rupture.Crews are working on emergency repairs and have been testing the water for days. They will continue to do so into the weekend.County officials urged everyone to stay out of the water, not only at the park, but in other surrounding areas as well.The boundaries of the affected areas extend from Maule Lake to the north, the Intracoastal to the east, Haulover Inlet to the south and the mainland to the west.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

At a time when many publishers have seen live events dwindle (American Business Media just released a report that said events were the second hardest hit category after print in 2009, down 15.8 percent to $11.1 billion), many would eagerly take a show such as PennWell’s 88-year-old Fire Department Instructor’s Conference (FDIC), which has proven relatively recession-resistant, drawing 27,000 attendees and selling out 800 exhibit booths at the Indianapolis Convention Center. However, maxing out the physical space can also mean lost opportunities. Working with InXpo, PennWell runs two virtual events per year called FDIC Online. “There are 1.2 million firefighters in the U.S. and that means there’s a big audience out there who can’t come to FDIC,” says Eric Schlett, vice president, publisher/executive director of Fire Engineering Magazine. “Using the distance learning mentality, how do we drive folks online to give firefighters the opportunity to get educated?”FDIC Online typically features video of the keynote speaker as well as seven to eight classroom sessions from the live show. With more than 1,000 presenters offering to speak each year, PennWell also uses FDIC Online to trial new talent before speaking at the live event the next year. The format includes a media lounge and prize center that rewards attendees for visiting vendor booths. “We’ll get 800, 900 leads for what we consider a small investment,” says Schlett. The virtual shows average about 3,000 registered attendees, with 60 percent attending the online event. Sponsor and Exhibitor Options PennWell offers 20 to 23 exhibitor booths for FDIC Online at about $4,500 a pop as well as virtual classroom sponsorships, in which sponsors get e-mail addresses of everyone who attends the class. The overall education sponsor receives registration data for all attendees. “That, to me, is the most valuable sponsorship we have,” says Schlett. “Like a lot of publishers we’re experimenting with different pricing modes with online packages and debating a CPM basis or a flat fee. We’ve done both and we’re back to a flat rate, even on our banners.”While Haymarket’s SC Magazine has used the success it’s had generating leads with its SC World Congress virtual show to switch from a flat fee to cost-per-lead model, Schlett says FDIC won’t follow suit. “We don’t want to get into the discussion with the exhibitor of, ‘OK, we had 800 folks come to our booth, but a lot of these guys wanted free t-shirts, how do you qualify them?’” he adds. “We don’t want to get start discounting because of it. Someone like Pierce Fire Truck Co. knows how to follow through on a lead. Another company will say, ‘it didn’t turn into a sale.’ I don’t want to coach their sales staff on how they should follow up. That’s not my job.” The biggest key to a successful virtual event is the marketing—and the closer to the event, the better the response, says Schlett. “Anything longer than six weeks out, those folks forget, even if you send reminders,” he adds. “The best attendees are the ones who sign up within two weeks of the show.” read more

Next Tuesday is a day many Cuban migrants in Costa Rica have been waiting for ever since they left the island to try to reach the United States andgot stuck at the border with Nicaragua. The Costa Rican government announced that the first flight of Cuban migrants will leave on Jan. 12 for El Salvador — the first stop on their journey north — out of Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia, Guanacaste.Under an agreement among Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, and the U.N. International Organization for Migration, Cubans with transit visas in Costa Rica — nearly 8,000 people — will be allowed to buy a $555 ticket that includes transportation from the shelter where they are staying to the airport, a chartered flight to El Salvador, and then non-stop bus transportation with food through Guatemala and into Mexico.The Costa Rican government had originally announced that families would leave on the first flight but then backtracked. Immigration Administration Director Kathya Rodríguez said that minors would not be allowed on what’s being called a “test flight,” citing safety concerns for families traveling an untested route.And untested it is. Authorities involved in the negotiation repeated several times that the situation was “unprecedented” and the “first of its kind.”If all goes well, children between 2 and 12 years old will eventually pay $350 each for the trip. Infants will travel for free.The first group of migrants out will be determined by the order in which their temporary transit visas were issued.Once in Mexico, each Cuban migrant will be granted a 20-day temporary transit visa at no cost. But they will be on their own for reaching the U.S. border, said the IOM’s Costa Rica director, Roland de Wilde.“It’s important to remember that these migrants left their country voluntarily,” de Wilde said during the news conference Wednesday. “In Mexico they will surely find the transportation options that they want. I understand there are many options in Mexico.”Foreign Minister Manuel González stressed that the Jan. 12 airlift will be a “test flight” and would not guarantee any additional flights until regional leaders meet to assess its success sometime before Jan. 18. If all goes well, additional charter flights will be organized out of Daniel Oduber International Airport and Juan Santamaría International Airport in Alajuela. A shelter for Cuban migrants in Costa Rica near the border with Nicaragua. Lindsay Fendt/The Tico Times‘Having a visa is not the end-all, be-all’Drug gangs and kidnapping rings make the journey through Mexico to the U.S. one of the most dangerous migrant corridors in the world. Authorities said Wednesday that the temporary legal status granted to the migrants would help keep them out of danger from organized crime and corrupt officials.But Everard Meade, director of the Trans-Border Institute at the University of San Diego in California, said he was doubtful a Mexican transit visa would offer much protection.“Just having a visa doesn’t make them immune to the same dangers faced by Central American migrants,” Meade said.He called the gap in the airlift’s plan once the migrants reach Mexico a “black hole.”Meade said that the visas might offer some protection from shakedowns by corrupt cops or soldiers near the border but not necessarily from organized crime, especially along the route that follows the Gulf of Mexico. Organized crime targets people based on their perceived vulnerability, Meade said, and migrants — regardless of their legal status — are easy targets.Criminals often kidnap migrants to extort money from family members in the U.S. who have been sending them cash for the trip. Some migrants may also choose to hire smugglers to get them through the perilous border area to U.S. soil, regardless of their immigration status in Mexico, he added.Still, Meade said that unlike Central American migrants in Mexico, who are often stigmatized on racial or economic grounds, Cubans may enjoy some preferential treatment because of close relations between the island and Mexico and the well established Cuban community in Mexico.The U.S. Embassy in San José told The Tico Times in an email statement Tuesday that it was aware of the airlift agreement but did not comment further. Foreign Minister Manuel González did not specify any role in the deal played by the U.S. — where the migrants plan to seek asylum under the Cuban Adjustment Act — when asked by The Tico Times during Wednesday’s press conference.González cited U.S. immigration law that gives special privileges to Cuban nationals as one of the reasons why this small country made a herculean effort to house and feed the migrants.“Whether or not it’s just, it’s the law,” González said of U.S. immigration policy toward Cubans. “That’s the way it is.” Facebook Comments Related posts:Cuban migrant airlift set to continue but could take months Why some Cuban migrants aren’t trying their chances with smugglers Central American countries agree to safe passage for Cuban migrants marooned in Costa Rica Stranded Cuban migrants say goodbye to Costa Rica as airlift begins read more
