Push to grow Alaska’s mariculture includes new how-to training for budding seaweed farmers

(Photo courtesy of the Petersburg Marine Mammal Center)There’s a new opportunity next February in three Alaskan communities for people interested in getting into the industry of farming seaweed.The training is geared toward those in commercial fishing, tribal organizations or other coastal residents.Julie Decker is executive director of the Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation, a non-profit founded in 1978. Over the past five years the foundation has spearheaded an initiative to grow mariculture in the state. Decker said there are more people looking to get a start in the industry, whether it’s shellfish or seaweed farming.“We’ve also recognized that seaweed is sort of the entry point for the industry because it’s relatively cheaper gear so less capital needs to get involved,” Decker said. It’s also an annual crop so cash flow is a little bit easier.”The training will include an online webinar and in-person workshops planned for ten people each in Kodiak, Ketchikan and Sitka along with mentoring for a select few. Decker said they’re looking for applicants who have experience on the water.“So that we think they’ll be fairly successful from the get-go, since this is not a long workshop, you know there’s not a lot that goes into it but we think it’s enough to give people that have some skills working on the water already, give them an understanding of the application process and some other things about how to grow seaweed that would make them successful,” she said.Seaweed farming is seen as a natural fit for those in commercial fishing, with the boats and gear that could be used to set up a farm and a fishing season that often cries out for off-season opportunities. It’s a well-established industry in other parts of the globe and one that’s just starting to take off in Alaska. But it is gathering momentum.A Juneau company, Barnacle Seafoods, just won first place in the retail category for the Symphony of Seafood contest with a bullwhip kelp hot sauce. Four out of the 20 entries in that annual competition were seaweed products.The training is free. But applicants from outside those three communities have to pay their own travel and lodging costs. Applications are being accepted online until Dec. 20.Melissa Good is a marine advisory program agent in Unalaska for Alaska Sea Grant, a partner in the program.  She said the training is aimed at people who don’t know a lot about farming.“We’re going to cover topics from seaweed species, their life cycles through what kind of gear they’re going to need and business plans, funding sources to get into that and really all of the steps it takes from going through your permitting process, identifying what you want to grow, to marketing,” Good said.Good is also involved in researching what it takes to get a farm going in the Aleutian Islands. Alaska Sea Grant has partnered with the Aleutians East Borough to set up a pilot farm in Sand Point. Good said they hope to growing two different species of kelp next winter and harvesting in the spring of 2021.“Our hope is that we develop an innovative type of farm that can withstand our weather conditions,” Good explained. “We are living within an extreme environment; they call it the birth place of the winds for a very good reason. So we need to show that this can be done here.”In the first year the kelp grown at that farm will be donated to the community and any seafood processing companies that are interested in it.

first_imgBy Alex Lennane 06/11/2019 Kukla Beverage Logistics has appointed drinks industry veteran Chris Porter in a business development role.Mr Porter has long experience in the industry. Most recently he was chief executive of The Benevolent, the drinks industry charity. Prior to that he was at drinks logistics specialist JF Hillebrand’s Port and Laker division, where he spent 34 years as director.Mr Porter joined Kukla last month “to promote the global range of freight and logistics services to the UK drinks industry and to consolidate the growing reputation of the company, which was established in 2017”.He said: “I am delighted and excited to be working with a wonderful team of talented professionals, who are dedicated to providing communicative and personalised service to the drinks industry’s supply chains.“It’s obviously a very challenging time to join a company specialising in inbound freight solutions.

first_img Developmental language disorder (DLD) is a common but often unidentified condition.Children with DLD can struggle to understand what is said to them and to be understood. DLD is often mistaken for poor behaviour and complicated by co-occurring attention, motor andother difficulties.DLD can have long term and detrimental effects on social, emotional, mental health and academic functioning.Support from professionals including speech and language therapists and teachers can make a significant difference to the lives of children with DLD.The Irish Association of Speech and Language Therapists (IASLT) and many partner organisations across Ireland join those in the UK, Australia, the US, Finland, Canada and New Zealand in a campaign to increase awareness of DLD on October 18 2019.This year the theme of the campaign is about understanding the condition from the perspectives of those affected by it.Irish families can share their story about living with DLDby uploading a short video here.Such videos are a powerful way of telling policy makers and service planners about DLD.There are many videos already being shared on YouTube, with subtitles being developed across languages.The IASLT launched a position statement in 2017 which includes a comprehensive action plan to ensure best outcomes for Irish children with DLD.Priority actions include: increasing knowledge and skills to support the identification of DLD, and facilitating effective collaboration between SLTs, teachers and families to provide effective supports in primary and secondary school.There is ongoing work being undertaken by the IASLT National DLD Implementation Group to influence policy and practice across Ireland for children and families with DLD.The IASLT aims to spread the word and tell as many people as possible about this hidden disability.Please get involved on October 18th 2019 to help improve the lives of those living with DLD.

I am opposing the abstract blending of issues at mass demonstrations.”He also clearly stated that “I oppose the fact that participants in the rallies are bringing about traffic congestion and embellishing a lawless chaotic event with the appearance of a cultural festival.”He came to City Hall Plaza on hearing that conservative organizations were holding a gathering in opposition to the mass candle rally. His core demands are still the resolution of the abduction issue and the repatriation of his friend Lee Jae Hwan, who was kidnapped by North Korea. During the demonstration performance some people brought beverages to him as he was passionately singing self-penned songs about the abduction issue, but some others protested at his performance. Lee stated to them, “I am doing it legally, unlike you who invade roads illegally. I will go back to my place after three hours spent showing my opinion through performance.”Wrapping up his solo demonstration he said that, “There has been a period of trial and error since the Lee administration was launched. Now, it is about time for the people to watch and wait, to see what the President will do because he must already have listened to the voice of the people.”[imText2][imText3] There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with Chinalast_img read more

FCA should rate firms’ behaviour, says consumer panel

first_img FCA consults on duty of care requirement FCA proposals aim to improve competition in the investment platform market Consumers are eager to get information about firms’ behaviour, and the quality of their service, to help them make decisions about which firms to deal with, the panel added. “Consumers say the information should be authoritative, impartial, easy to understand, and incorporated into existing decision-making tools, like comparison tables,” it said. The panel recommends that a score for firms’ behaviour be developed from available data, including regulatory history such as penalties and redress, service level data held by firms (such as time spent waiting by customers who phone a contact centre), and surveys of customers’ views about service levels. It calls on the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to consider the feasibility of developing such a measure. A ‘star’ system, or something similar, would help consumers decide which firms are likely to treat them well post-sale, the FSCP noted. This could also amplify the impact of penalties, or poor service levels, “by giving firms a clearer incentive to improve behaviour and to treat customers fairly, thus driving competition, and increasing overall trust in retail financial services,” it suggested. “When people buy a financial product or service, they have no idea how well the firm they are buying from will treat them after the sale. Sadly, their expectations are not high, and they assume that all providers are as bad as each other,” said Sue Lewis, chairwoman of the FSCP. “There is a wealth of information available on the way firms treat their customers, but it is hard to get at or to interpret, so people can’t use it for making decisions about which firms they want to do business with,” she said. “We think the FCA should lead the way in combining the different aspects of firm behaviour together in a single measure,” Lewis added. “At the very least, we believe the regulator should require firms to publish more data about service level and firm conduct, and consider how these can be made most accessible to consumers.” The U.K. Financial Services Consumer Panel (FSCP), a consumer advocacy group, on Tuesday called for a simple rating system to help British consumers decide which financial services firms would be likely to treat them well. Research commissioned by the panel found that consumers don’t tend to use firms’ reputations in helping them decide which firm to use, focusing instead on factors such as pricing and products, the panel said in a statement.

Veteran Cricketer Honoured

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Scottish city of Stirling has granted the honour of Freedom of the City to Jamaican born former cricketer, 85 year-old Irvin Iffla, in recognition of his long standing commitment and contribution to the public life of the city and in particular, cricket.Mr. Iffla moved to Stirling from Jamaica in 1951 to play for the Stirling County Cricket Club and has lived there ever since. According to Mr. Iffla’s son, Robin, his father’s original intention was to play for one season and then return to Jamaica.In Jamaica, he was then the youngest cricketer to represent the island at age 18, when he played against the MCC ( Marylebone Cricket Club) in 1947.Mr. Irvin attended the Rollington Town School, where he developed his passion for cricket. He progressed to play for Wembley and Railway clubs.“I know that he played for Jamaica against the touring MCC in 1947, where he took the wicket of Len Hutton. He left Jamaica to take up the professional post at Stirling County Cricket Club in 1951. His wife Lucille and their children joined him six months later,” Robin told JIS news.In 1952 Stirling won the cricket championship. In 1960 Irvin Iffla left to play as a professional for Ayr in the western Union Championship. That year and the following year, Ayr won the championship. He left Ayr and played as a professional for Stenhousemuir, which won the championship for the first time during his stay.“He holds the record in Scotland for being the only professional at three clubs, which spanned the Scottish Counties, Western Union and the East League and they all won their respective championships. In his cricketing time in Scotland, Irvin played with Rohan Khanai, who was a professional for Aberdeen, and also coached Mike Dennis at Ayr, who went on to become thecCaptain of England,” Robin added.An avid sportsman, Irvin Iffla continued to play with local village teams when he retired from County cricket and finally ‘drew stumps’ in his early seventies.Although his original plans was to stay in Scotland for a three-year term, Irvin Iffla did not return to Jamaica until 1980, when he visited his sister Monica (now deceased) and his niece Shirley Nix, who still resides in Kingston. His wife Lucille still has family in Kingston, Mandeville and Montego Bay.According to Robin, “there is no doubt that Irvin’s arrival in Scotland changed the face of Scottish cricket, yet he was nonetheless surprised, yet delighted, to receive the award of Freedom of the City for Stirling. He is only the second citizen to receive it. Irvin Iffla said he was overwhelmed by the honuor from the city of Stirling.“I am overwhelmed to be granted such a prestigious award. I took Scotland to my heart when I came here in 1951 and Scotland took me into its heart. Stirling has been my home since then and the birthplace of three of my children. To receive such an honour from my adopted homeland and city is the pinnacle of my cricketing career and a very humbling experience,” he said.Jamaican High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Burchell Whiteman, extending congratulations to Mr. Iffla, said he truly deserved special recognition.“I write to add my word of congratulations to Irvin Iffla on his receiving the Freedom of the City of Stirling at the recent ceremony. On behalf of the Jamaican High Commission and the Jamaican community in the United Kingdom, I want to thank you for making the award to Mr. Iffla, who I know truly deserves special recognition. As a student in the United Kingdom, I was fortunate to spend a day in Stirling in the summer of 1964 and was delighted to meet Irvin and to learn from people in Stirling and the newspapers what a significant role he was playing in developing the city’s cricketing profile ,”Mr. Whiteman said.

Financial Futures hits milestones—more than 150 projects approved for implementation

first_img Published: Nov. 5, 2019 At just over one year since its launch, Financial Futures has reached some noteworthy milestones: more than 225 project owners from over 50 departments and units across campus and the CU system have generated over 500 ideas to align strategic resources to our mission. To date, over 150 projects have been approved for implementation. The Oct. 24 town hall featured projects moving through implementation, newly approved projects and other initiative updates. Here are a few highlights:Expanded first-year academic advising: In support of Foundations of Excellence recommendations, the campus is implementing a first-year advising model to support student success. Hiring is underway to add additional first-year advisors across all CU Boulder colleges and schools. Biological Research Technology Resource Center:  This campus-wide facility provides dedicated space and equipment to conduct interdisciplinary biological research. Since its establishment in July, the space has trained and supported users from CU Boulder, in addition to those from other CU campuses, Anschutz and local biotech/industry.Adobe Creative Cloud contract renegotiated: To leverage the scale of users and the total cost to the CU Boulder campus, the Office of Information Technology renegotiated its contract with Adobe, resulting in deeply discounted software pricing for faculty, staff and students. For Mike Viola, IT category manager for the CU system, the Adobe Creative Cloud project is especially exciting. “It’s rare that I get to see the impacts of my role so directly,” says Viola. “The renegotiated contract with Adobe brings the cost of the Creative Cloud suite down to a fraction of the original cost for students, staff and faculty. “Too often, administrative offices in higher education limit ‘enterprise’ considerations to staff and faculty. This project intentionally put students at the center, and in so doing we were able to create cost savings for CU Boulder and its students,” says Viola. “The lower cost of Adobe is extremely helpful for me,” says Max Kitay, a CU Boulder student pursuing a bachelor’s of science in technology, arts, and media. “I use Adobe Creative Cloud in classes each semester, and the lower cost allows me to allocate those funds elsewhere in my life.” “Financial Futures created a collaborative environment that allowed me to work more with people on the campuses. It was fun, and it made me appreciate my role more,” says Viola. He and his CU Boulder project partners are working with faculty and students to spread the word about the new, low-cost licenses. He’s also got his sights set on an even lower cost option in the future. “Financial Futures shows what can be accomplished when we’re looking at things from an enterprise level. We’re more powerful together,” says Viola. For Max Kitay, there’s another upside. “It’s nice knowing that CU staff are looking for ways to help students spend less on college. It really shows that the university wants students here and wants them to have the resources to be successful.” Students can purchase the Adobe Creative Cloud from the CU Book Store for only $65 for the remaining 2019 license year (through June 30, 2019.)Categories:Financial FuturesStrategic InitiativesCampus Community Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-maillast_img read more

Inter-Ministerial Committee of Crime Prevention to be Set Up

first_imgInter-Ministerial Committee of Crime Prevention to be Set Up National SecurityApril 19, 2012 Advertisements RelatedInter-Ministerial Committee of Crime Prevention to be Set Up RelatedInter-Ministerial Committee of Crime Prevention to be Set Up By Douglas McIntosh, JIS Reporter FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail National Security Minister, Hon. Peter Bunting, has announced plans for the establishment of an Inter-Ministerial Committee on Crime Prevention and Community Safety. Speaking at a media briefing on his first 100 days in office, at the Ministry’s New Kingston offices on Wednesday (April 18), Mr. Bunting said the committee will coordinate the various community regeneration and employment creation programmes being developed to support the anti-gang strategy. Noting that the administration is operating in a “resource-constrained environment,” Mr. Bunting explained that part of the committee’s role will be prioritising expenditure within their existing budgets, to identify resources that can be channelled into enhancing security and safety.    “So, for example, if we have a volatile community in St. Catherine where relatively modest sums (have been) allocated to infrastructure (to) improve the policing environment and the safety and security of the citizens,…whether it is from the Ministry of Local Government (or) the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing, the Ministry of Education, perhaps, may need to chip in,” he stated. He noted that there are instances where money may not required, but instead “a focused effort, informed by the intelligence that they get from the police”. Mr. Bunting advised that the Ministry would be meeting with all ministers and their respective agency and department heads to identify “what it is that they can do within their existing ministries, and within the existing budgetary constraints, to enhance the security environment”.

Electronic Procurement System Launched

first_imgThe Ministry of Finance and Planning has launched Jamaica’s first electronic  procurement platform, which will significantly improve efficiency and transparency in the acquisition of goods, services and works.The E-Procurement System, launched on July 31 under the theme: ‘Faster, Easier and More Efficient Way of Doing Business’, is in keeping with the Government’s commitment to strengthen and promote Public Procurement Reform under the Economic Reform Programme (ERP).The system will result in a reduction in administrative costs, as well as in processing time.Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Finance and Planning, Hon. Horace Dalley, speaking at the ceremony at the Pegasus Hotel, said modernisation of the public procurement system is a critical step as Jamaica continues to make new alliances and become more competitive on the world stage.“The Government is the largest purchaser of goods and services. For there to be efficiency, quality, transparency and accountability, we felt that the public procurement regime should have been overhauled and that has been done,” he said.A Public Procurement Bill was passed in Parliament in early July.Mr. Dalley said for the last fiscal year, 378 consulting contracts were procured on behalf of the Jamaican government, valued at $1.459 billion. Procurement activities for goods were valued at $48 billion; $8.49 billion for services and for works, approximately $9 billion. Procurement activities for insurance services were valued at $773.3 million.The Minister  said staff from the Ministry and its agencies have been trained and will be given internationally-recognised certification.Mr. Dalley said  this should put the Government of Jamaica in a position, “where we will have a group of skilled, trained and certified public procurement officers that can (fully) move us into the 21st Century.”“This is not being done in isolation. This is what public sector transformation is all about; how we do business, the ease in doing business and how the people of Jamaica, our customers, have access to the system of governance,” he added.Features of the E-Procurement Portal include standardized procurement practices in line with international best practices; effective management of the entire procurement life cycle; and easy access to information.  There will also be wider supplier participation in procurement proceedings, as well as improved procurement statistics.The development of the portal was done through funding by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
