Derrick Kellier, reiterated the Government’s commitment to creating an environment conducive to work.“We know that many workers and employers are experiencing challenges in the tight fiscal space in which we are operating, but we must continue to join hands and hearts together for the good of the country,” Mr. Kellier said.He noted that the Ministry will continue its efforts to implement a comprehensive occupational management system in Jamaica.The Minister noted that the Government will table the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) in the House this financial year.“While we await the legislation, the Ministry will be working to increase public awareness about hazards and risks at the workplace and the corresponding prevention and control. A series of educational activities are being planned islandwide and will continue beyond Workers’ Week,” he informed.Mr. Kellier said the Ministry is planning to host a major public education and sensitisation session in Portmore, St. Catherine, during the week, to help members of the public understand aspects of the impending OSHA legislation.“Let me emphasise that safety and well-being in our places of work is a right for all Jamaican workers and a legacy for future generations,” the Minister said.

From the outside, it may seem like this chapter unfolded without drama – as the veteran prop won his 100th Test cap in 2018 and then added to his legacy with Rugby Championship and World Cup-winners’ medals in 2019. But, as the Beast tells SA Rugby magazine, there was a time when he doubted himself and feared his journey would end with a whimper rather than a roar. ‘I invested so much into playing that 100th Test,’ he says. Indeed, the lead-up to that game against England in Bloemfontein – the second of the three-Test series – was dominated by tributes to the living legend, the first black African centurion.‘I felt I did well in that series. Afterwards, however, I lost a bit of form and was dropped to the bench. It was tough. I started to wonder if this is how I wanted to end it all. My wife could see what a toll everything was taking on me. We had a lot of discussions about it. I started to think about retiring at the end of the 2018 season. ‘It’s funny how life works, though,’ he says before breaking into a booming laugh. ‘I had a long chat to Rassie Erasmus about it. Then I got injured in the final Rugby Championship game against the All Blacks in Pretoria. I was out for a while and I used that time to assess my options. Looking back, I’m glad I had that chance to reflect. I’ve always wanted to win the World Cup [after falling short of the goal at the 2011 and 2015 tournaments]. The opportunity to push for the game’s ultimate prize is what gave me a new lease on life.’Mtawarira has long been a talisman within the national set-up, especially among the forwards. Captain Siya Kolisi and hardman Eben Etzebeth often speak about the veteran’s contributions with reverence. Hooker Bongi Mbonambi told SA Rugby magazine this year that Mtawarira was the set-piece catalyst in last year’s World Cup final.The Boks destroyed the England scrum in the opening quarter. The importance of that performance was highlighted after each successful set piece when the backline players rushed over to slap Mtawarira and the other forwards on the back. ‘That was my life’s work,’ Mtwaraira says, nearly six months after the event. The big man made a name for himself when he scrummed Phil Vickery into submission in the 2009 British & Irish Lions series. It’s fair to say he lived up to his fearsome reputation – and then some – in his final Test appearance 10 years later.‘It all came together in that final. I could not have asked for a better end to my career. All the hard work I’d put into my game over the years … it was all worth it. I knew the minute that game ended that it was my last. My heart was full.’Mtawarira travelled to the US after the tournament to take a player-mentor role with local club Old Glory. When we catch up, he reveals that he only just managed to return to South Africa before the nationwide lockdown. While in isolation, Mtawarira and his family had the chance to rewatch the 2019 World Cup final, which was – along with other classic matches – shown in lieu of any live sport.‘That squad was such a tight unit. Most people won’t understand what we went through over the past few years. Players like me were there with the Boks during the worst years in 2016 and 2017 when the results and performances were poor. There were things going on behind the scenes that nobody will ever know about. Then Rassie came back and we started to build a new team. It wasn’t easy and there were some growing pains, but it made us stronger. ‘When I watched that final in Yokohama, all the emotions came flooding back. Even my wife was crying. She knows what we went through.’Mtawarira says his short-term stint in the US was not so much about playing as giving back to the next generation and helping a developing rugby nation.‘The owners of Old Glory got in touch through an old schoolmate of mine from Zimbabwe, who is involved in club rugby over there in the States. They contacted me in 2019 to see if I was interested. I had my mind on other things at that stage, of course, with the World Cup right around the corner. I was just trying to get into the best possible shape before travelling to Japan.‘Some players chase the big pay cheque at an overseas club after finishing their international careers. I had other reasons for accepting the chance to work in the MLR. I wanted to do something meaningful, and I saw the move to Old Glory as a chance to mentor younger players and help a semi-professional sport in the US gain more recognition. ‘I’d travelled to the States many times before with my wife. I couldn’t wait to go back. From a sport point of view, I saw what David Beckham had done for soccer there during the latter stages of his career. I was hoping to do the same for rugby. I wanted to leave a legacy. Unfortunately, my stay was cut short.’A lifelong fan of the NBA, Mtawarira admits that he left the US with some regrets. ‘I was so close to meeting LeBron James! I got in touch with a guy who was going to get me tickets to the NBA playoffs. The basketball season was cancelled so that dream had to be put on hold. I don’t know if I will go back to the States. The MLR season has been scrapped and I was only contracted for one year. They want me to come back in 2021 but I don’t know if I have another season in me.’Perhaps when rugby does get the green light to resume, it’s the South African game that will benefit from Mtawarira’s knowledge and expertise. ‘I’d love to work with younger players on this side,’ he says. ‘I see it as my duty as a retired player. I’d love to impart what I’ve learned and help the guys who want to make a career out of playing in the front row.’*This feature appeared in the latest issue of SA Rugby magazine, now on sale.Subscribe hereNEW BATTLE FOR No 1Springbok great Beast Mtawarira wasn’t afraid to single out Ox Nche when asked about the state of South Africa’s front-row stocks and the recent performances in the Super Rugby tournament.Nche has been on the national radar for some time. The athletic prop was impressive with his ball-carrying and handling contributions for South Africa A against the French Barbarians in 2017 and he made his Test debut against Wales in Washington DC a year later.That Test remains Nche’s only appearance for Rassie Erasmus’ Springboks. Given Mtawarira’s retirement after the 2019 World Cup, however, there’s an opportunity to nail down a place in the squad.‘There are a lot of players putting their hands up. One who has caught my eye is the guy who’s replaced me at the Sharks,’ says Mtawarira, who spent his entire career with the Durban-based franchise.‘Ox has done a great job since coming in from the Cheetahs. I love the way he goes about his game. To be honest, I haven’t seen the Sharks play so well in ages. It’s just a shame that the season was cut short, as they really seemed to have struck a great balance. ‘The Boks went to the 2019 World Cup with two specialist loosehead props in Mtawarira and Steven Kitshoff. Swing props such as Trevor Nyakane and Thomas du Toit – who has played a lot at No 3 this year – also have the ability to slot in at No 1.Lizo Gqoboka made his Test debut in the 2019 Rugby Championship and would have travelled to the World Cup if Mtawarira or Kitshoff broke down with a serious injury. Now that Mtawarira has retired, Gqoboka, like Nche, will be looking to establish himself as a regular member of the match-day 23.Main photo: Steve Haag Sports/Hollywoodbets From the mag: Beast masterpiece Published on June 1, 2020 ‘ ‘ 熱門話題不要被酵素騙了!在萬寧賣的「這個」直接針對脂肪…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndoAaron Smith names South African as greatest World Cup scrumhalfSA Rugby MagUndoJapan-based Kiwi player: I hope to never experience this againSA Rugby MagUndoLife Exact BrazilGrace Jones Is Now 72 Years Old, This Is Her NowLife Exact Brazil|SponsoredSponsoredUndolast_img read more

first_imgThe new model is the first in the series to use hybrid diesel-electric drive technology to reduce noise and fuel emissionsDescribed by the Terex brand as ideal for construction and demolition recycling applications and urban areas, this is the fourth model in the Bison series and the first to use hybrid diesel-electric drive technology to reduce running costs in addition to cutting noise and fuel emissions.The dual-powered Bison 160 is equipped with a proven 700 x 500 mm (28 x 20 in) single toggle hydraulically adjustable jaw crusher.It has been designed with the specific needs of the owner or operator in mind, including working in space-restricted sites.EvoQuip says that ease of transport, compact size, ease of operation and quick set-up times all mean the machine can get to site easily and begin operation within minutes of unloading.The new Bison 160 includes a heavy duty vibrating grizzly feeder, and the feeder control system is based on power draw and feed level to ensure optimal material flow in the jaw and throughput.“The Bison 160 hybrid hook-lift jaw crusher represents a new milestone for us,” said EvoQuip product line director Matt Dickson.“It is an ideal crusher for waste contractors who can use existing hook-lift vehicles to either bring material to depot for processing or alternatively bring the crusher to the waste on site – turning waste into profit whilst providing excellent productivity and fuel efficiency.”“The incorporation of the hybrid diesel-electric drive technology; quick set up times, simple operation and ease of transport are all issues which our customers have identified as key priorities for the future.”Key to the design of the EvoQuip Bison 160 is that it is small enough to fit easily inside a standard 12 m (40 ft) high cube container yet is formidable enough to withstand challenging applications. Leading compact crushing and screening equipment manufacturer EvoQuip has introduced the Bison 160 hybrid hook-lift jaw crusher.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*#last_img read more

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… GitHub really comes together for most users when you start talking about the social features. Every user and project has a profile (here is one for co-founder Chris Wanstrath, and here is one for the Ruby on Rails project) which tracks progress and participation. Users and projects also have public activity feeds which display activity on public projects such as commits, comments, forks, etc.Users have the option to follow specific developers or projects to keep tabs on their activity.Some might wonder what the point of a centralized host for a decentralized, open source product really is — i.e., is not Git meant to be installed locally? As Peter Cooper points out, “If you just want one reason why Github is relevant, it’s because the Web interface provides the connection BETWEEN hosted projects and the forks of them. Hosting your own Git repository is not hard […] but co-ordinating efforts of forking and merging amongst people you don’t personally know is tough. With a system like Github, it becomes a lot easier.”In other words, what makes GitHub special is the social aspects. With so many high profile projects already on board, it’s easy to imagine GitHub could be the next SourceForge. josh catone 1 Related Posts Tags:#Product Reviews#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Git is a decentralized version control system created by Linus Torvalds that is used by a number of open source projects, most notably perhaps the Linux kernel. GitHub is a new hosted Git repository service that’s being called a “social network” for programmers and with good reason. It also already has some high profile projects of its own on board: Ruby on Rails, Capistrano, Merb, Prototype and Scriptaculous, among others. “[GitHub is] the way SourceForge should have been,” gushed one beta tester.Git decentralizes version control by giving each developer a local copy of the development history, and then changes are copied from repository to repository. Because Git makes it simple to fork and merge code, it makes the system ideally suited to collaborative development projects. But what really sets GitHub apart, is not that it uses Git, but how elegantly it pulls everything together around a set of core social networking ideas.Though GitHub is a pay service with a business model aimed squarely at commercial development shops in need of a secure, hosted, version control system, the company also offers a generous free package that would be suitable for many open source projects. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

first_imgNew York, Jan 25 (PTI) An unexpected win by your favourite sports team or an unusually sunny day will not improve your chances of winning a lottery, but it may increase the likelihood that you will buy a ticket, a new US study has found.Previous laboratory research had shown that people who are in a good mood are willing to take riskier bets and that unexpected positive outcomes are particularly likely to boost peoples mood.But there was little research establishing a link between unexpected positive outcomes and actual risk taking behaviour in the real world.Researchers from the New York University and University College London analysed two years worth of daily lottery purchases in 174 New York City neighbourhoods.They found that citywide gambling increased following unrelated, unexpectedly positive events – in this case, unexpected sports wins and unusually sunny days.To examine sports outcomes, researchers first tabulated all wins and losses in regular and postseason games played by New York City-area teams in 2011 and 2012, including teams in the National Football League, National Basketball League, National Hockey League, and Major League Baseball.Using this data, they calculated a daily expectation of each teams win probability, which served as the prediction for the next days sports outcomes.On each day that a team played, the difference between the predicted outcome and the true outcome provided a measure of how unexpectedly good or bad the actual sports outcome was.The researchers also used satellite-derived solar irradiance data to measure the amount of sunshine for each day in 2011 and 2012 in the New York metropolitan area.advertisementAs with the sports data, the researchers calculated a weighted daily average for amount of sunshine that served as the prediction for the next days sunshine.To account for their potential effects on gambling, the researchers also included variables in their statistical model to represent the specific day of the week, holidays, typical paycheck cycles, and severe weather events.They found that the more unexpected the sports teams wins were, the more New York City residents spent on lottery purchases the next day. Similarly, the more unexpected sunshine there was, the more people gambled that day.”On a day in which multiple sports teams unexpectedly win, approximately USD 160,000 more is spent on lottery gambling relative to an average day,” researchers said.”These results reveal a remarkable malleability to human risk taking – peoples gambling behaviour is shaped by unexpected, but incidental outcomes in their environment,” said Ross Otto from New York University.The findings were published in the journal Psychological Science.

The Ohio State coach placed him in a similar category to Joey Bosa, who was taken No. 3 overall. “I was kind of shocked he didn’t go yesterday,” Meyer said on the NFL Network. “I was kind of shocked he didn’t go yesterday,” Urban says of Noah Spence.— Andrew Holleran (@andrewjholleran) April 29, 2016Meyer also talked about how Spence was a 3.0 student at Ohio State and comes from a great family.The NFL Draft is currently airing on ESPN and the NFL Network.
