Spouses of CARICOM Leaders Action Network (SCLAN) gets Grant Funding from Gilead…

first_img You may be interested in… Oct 16, 2020 (SCLAN Press Release) The Spouses of CARICOM Leaders Action Network (SCLAN) is pleased to announce the receipt of grant funding from Gilead Sciences Inc. for initiatives under the theme “Transforming Lives through Innovation: Implementation of high-impact prevention programs for adolescents, young men and women”. The Grant will facilitate the establishment of the SCLAN Secretariat that will be housed in Belize, and two demonstration projects in Belize and Guyana. The Secretariat will be tasked with the oversight of projects, resource mobilization, information sharing and coordination of the Network’s activities across the region. Dr. Ramon Figueroa, Chief Executive Officer, Ministry of Health of Belize looks on as Ms. Kim Simplis Barrow, Spouse of the Prime Minister of Belize and Chair of SCLAN signs the grant document Oct 16, 2020 Oct 16, 2020 CARPHA Partners with, PAHO to Ensure Caribbean States’… Six Eastern Caribbean countries deemed safe for travel – CDC center_img Ms. Kim Simplis Barrow, Spouse of the Prime Minister of Belize and Chair of SCLAN states that, “This grant comes at a time when the need for sustainable health initiatives for the well-being of our vulnerable population is at an all-time high. We are very fortunate that the views and objectives of SCLAN are well aligned with those of Gilead Sciences Inc.” The demonstration project in Belize will take place in a Southern District that is experiencing high rates of new HIV infections. It is envisioned that through the implementation of innovative strategies made possible by the Grant, there will be a reduction of new HIV and other sexually transmitted infections by 2020. Activities will complement those already being implemented in the country’s national response to HIV/AIDS/TB. An important feature will be the sensitization, introduction and rollout of PrEP as a further initiative in the prevention of new HIV infections. In Guyana the demonstration project will allow for the implementation of a programme similar to PEPFAR’s DREAMS – Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-Free, Mentored, Safe – which was successfully launched in Sub-Saharan Africa. It encompasses HIV testing, treatment and prevention, with social protection interventions to keep girls in school, for economic development, ending gender-based violence and linking men and boys to health services. The partnership with Gilead Sciences Inc. will help these countries meet their goals. The Projects in both countries will target females and males (16-24 years), in and out of school, for activities toward the achievement of a productive and healthy future for themselves and their families. They will be engaged in initiatives related to decision-making and negotiation skills, increasing their knowledge of HIV/AIDS/TBprevention, and the acquisition of skills to prevent and manage sexual and domestic violence. The creation of SCLAN as a non-governmental organization was endorsed by CARICOM Heads of Government at their Inter-Sessional Meeting in Guyana in February 2017. It was formally established last September, with H.E. Kim Simplis Barrow, Spouse of the Prime Minister of Belize, being elected Chair. SCLAN’s mission is a Caribbean free from HIV, gender-based violence, teenage pregnancy and cervical cancer, with long term goals set forth by the global community including former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Every Woman, Every Child GlobalInitiative and the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health (2016-2030).

UK: Dawlish Brook Dredging Kicks Off

first_imgDe-silting work is about to start on Dawlish Brook to help reduce future flooding, protect the town centre, residents and businesses and its world-famous waterfowl. Work is scheduled to start today and is set to last two weeks.Signs have been put up at the waterfowl warden’s building and the Tourist Information Centre to tell people what is happening.Dawlish Brook, also known as Dawlish Water, begins its journey at Haldon and runs through Ashcombe valley, before reaching the sea at Dawlish Beach. On its journey it drops over weirs and under bridges, passing through the Manor Gardens and the Lawn, eventually joining the sea, passing under the railway viaduct.The Brook has 20 weirs and sluices along its length. Work is needed because over the years – and in particular last year’s storms – silt and gravel have been washed downstream, creating build-up to an unacceptable level.This leaves the Lawn prone to flooding which has an effect on residents, businesses and the nesting birds.Teignbridge District Council, the Environment Agency, Devon County Council and Dawlish Town Council are working together to look at the way water flows along Dawlish Brook and how this flow affects the town, particularly during periods of flooding.The long-term and detailed project looks at dealing with any problems found and making adjustments where necessary.The main problem is the build-up of silt and stone. Work has focused on how the weirs gates may be altered to reduce this.Engineers are also looking at where the silt and stone material has come from and how all the partners can manage this better.The program of works will start off with a ‘fish rescue’ by the Environment Agency, prior to a de-silting exercise.The weir gates will be opened to help reduce flooding and also self-flush The Brook. Accumulated material which can clog up the watercourse will be removed from lower bays. Bays from the bandstand and above contain larger size gravel material which provides ideal habitat for spawning fish. For this reason those bays will be looked at in greater detail when fish spawning season finishes next April.Any material that is removed will be reused to restore river banks that were lost in the 2012 floods at Ashcombe.Cllr Kevin Lake, Teignbridge District Council’s Executive Spokesperson for Environmental Services, said:“The dredging work is really important because it will help stop the Lawn from flooding.“Reducing the impact of contamination and pollution of bathing waters in the UK is an essential piece of work that Teignbridge and its partners take very seriously.“The Lawn is unique and is an important meeting point and recreational area for residents and visitors. And, of course, it is home to the black swans and waterfowl, adored by many and which give Dawlish its unique identity.”Cllr Graham Price, Teignbridge Ward Member for Dawlish Central and North East, said:“It is wonderful news that at last the desired clean up of the Brook is about to take place. The residents of Dawlish will be delighted as the present situation has been a cause of concern for some time. Because of the complexity of the project we appreciate it has had to take time to ensure the correct course of action is applied.”Cllr Ted Hockin, Teignbridge Ward Member for Dawlish Central and North East, said:“Dredging the Brook is to be welcomed as it will help give security by preventing flooding of properties around the Lawn and will certainly make the area more attractive and look less neglected.“With the work on the Strand now almost completed and the dredging of the Brook about to take place, the centre of Dawlish is becoming an even more attractive place to live in and visit.”Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council Cabinet Member for Flood Prevention, said:“It’s encouraging to see how well the authorities are working in partnership to reduce the risk of future flooding in Dawlish. The Defra Community Resilience Pathfinder project, being led by the County Council, has provided us with the opportunity to work closely with the local community and assist them with the development of their local action plan.”The Environment Agency’s Environment Officer Nigel Thomas-Childs said:“This work brings together months of planning behind the scenes and working with farmers and landowners upstream of the town. The fish rescue will also provide useful background data about the fish species and fish numbers present in the Brook.”On behalf of Dawlish Town Council, Dawlish Mayor Cllr Terry Lowther, said:“I’m delighted to see progress towards attaining one of the Town Council’s main aims. After the Lawn, the Brook is the biggest attraction in the town and is very important to visitors and residents alike. It also plays a vital function in reducing the risk of flash floods.”Future work will also involve trialling a light-weight weir gate as an alternative to the existing heavier metal types, fully repairing a weir near the bandstand, removing sediment and gravel and improving an island opposite the Old Post Offices to help protect the swan nesting site. The deep fast-flowing section of river is also beneficial for fish.Repairs will also be made to the island opposite the bandstand to help protect the waterfowl site and design work on new, large size weir gates in the last two weirs will also be progressed.In the meantime work will continue with the new Dawlish Emergency Response Plan which outlines actions to be taken before, during and after a flood event.[mappress]Press Release, November 12, 2013last_img read more

FORESEA boosts 15 ocean energy developers

first_imgAn €11 million EU-funded FORESEA initiative has backed 15 offshore renewable energy technologies following its second call for applications.The awards will provide a boost to technology developers by allowing them to test their technologies on the open sea, attract further investment, and move further along the path to commercialization, FORESEA said.FORESEA’s user selection board awarded a ‘Recommendation for Support’ to demonstration projects led by the following technology developers to test at the indicated test center:Aqua Power Technologies (EMEC)ASVS (SEM REV)Current2Current (EMEC)Dresser-Rand (EMEC)Finima Innovations (EMEC)FishFlow Innovations (TTC)Flex Sense (SEM REV)FMGC (SEM REV)Oceanlinx (EMEC)Scotrenewables Tidal Power (EMEC)Sigma Energy (EMEC)Sustainable Marine Energy (EMEC)Swirl Generators (EMEC)Tocardo (TTC and EMEC)Final confirmation of support will be granted to developers upon contract with the relevant test center, according to FORESEA.Hans van Breugel, CEO of Tocardo, said: “The FORESEA program enables Tocardo to improve the dynamic umbilical power cable for our Universal Foundation Structure (UFS), needed for power evacuation from the semi-sub UFS platform to the power cable on the sea bed.“Deployment of systems in real life conditions will increase the project developer’s confidence and reduce the cost of capital in projects.”To remind, the FORESEA initiative backed 10 ocean energy developers back in November 2016 following its first call. The developers received support to demonstrate their technologies at Europe’s world-leading ocean energy test facilities.The test facilities participating in the project are EMEC (Orkney Islands, UK); SmartBay (Galway, Ireland); SEM-REV (Nantes, France); and Tidal Testing Centre (Den Oever, Netherlands).Funding Ocean Renewable Energy through Strategic European Action (FORESEA) project is funded by the Interreg North-West Europe (NWE) program, part of the European Regional Development Fund.

first_img Akhil Shah QC, Alexander Milner (instructed by DLA Piper UK) for the appellants; James Leabeater (instructed by Berwin Leighton Paisner) for the respondent. Aviation – Conditions of engagement – Contract terms – Interpretation The appellant aircraft maintenance company (C) appealed against a decision that its standard conditions of trading were not incorporated into a work order form. The first respondent was the owner of the second respondent company that was the registered owner of an aircraft that had been leased to a third party company (E). The aircraft was maintained by C under a maintenance support contract and a continuing airworthiness management support contract with E. Under the contractual arrangements, C’s practice was for the scope of maintenance works to be carried out on the aircraft to be defined on a work order form. C’s work order forms contained the statement ‘terms and conditions available on request’. On a particular occasion, C negligently carried out works, pursuant to a work order form, on the aircraft with the result that it sustained damage on a subsequent flight. E assigned its right of claim against C to the first respondent. The respondents subsequently brought a claim for losses incurred by them and E as result of the damage suffered by the aircraft. The respondents applied for summary judgment in their claim on the basis that, among other things, C had no real prospect of showing that the work order form was a contractual document or that it incorporated C’s terms and conditions. A judge held that it was reasonably arguable that the work order was a document intended to have contractual effect. However, the judge held that the statement ‘terms and conditions available on request’ did not incorporate C’s standard conditions of trading because they conveyed no more than that there were terms and conditions available, and they did not purport to incorporate any particular terms and conditions into a contract. C contended that the judge erred by adopting too linguistic an approach and failed to look at the commercial context in which the work order form and the statement on it was made, and that if he had he ought to have found that it was at least arguable that it was intended that work carried out by C pursuant to a work order form was subject to its conditions of trading. Held: The judge had correctly directed himself towards the applicable principle as to the construction of commercial contracts, namely whether reasonable people would have understood the words used as referring to contractual terms upon which C had agreed to do the work, Investors Compensation Scheme Ltd v West Bromwich Building Society (No1) [1998] 1 WLR 896 HL followed. However, the judge had erred in finding that the words used could not be said to have incorporated C’s standard conditions of trading. The work order form was a contractual document that took its place in a contractual maintenance scheme, whereby the work order form activated the work, and nature of work, to be done on the aircraft. While the judge’s interpretation of the words used might have been correct grammatically, in a business context it would be odd if a contractual binding order such as the work order form contained no commercial terms but left them only for inclusion at a customer’s request. It was at least arguable that a reasonable person would have understood the words used as referring to contractual terms upon which C had agreed to work on the aircraft. Appeal allowed. center_img Rooney & Anor v CSE Bournemouth Ltd (t/a CSE Citation Centre): CA (Civ Div) (Lady Justice Arden, Lord Justice Toulson, Mr Justice Hedley): 9 June 2010last_img read more
