It would be a big loss when Richard’s knowledge is no longer available and not shared anymore, so that’s why we decided to continue together and gradually take over some of Richards tasks.”www.twd.nllast_img read more

first_imgOn Wednesday October 12 the City of Cape Town invited senior citizens from various old age homes in the greater Athlone area to a lunch and entertainment event at the Athlone civic centre, from 9am to 3pm. When we arrived, we were given a single cheese sandwich and a cup of tea or coffee. This was followed by hours of, apart from three or four impressive items, mediocre entertainment. The only thing that kept most people there, many of whom had had to spent upwards of R20 to R30 travelling to and from the event, was the promise of a delicious, substantial lunch… such a rare treat for many senior citizens who are expected to survive on R1 500 for an entire month. What a disappoint-ment it was to receive an unappetising container with a piece of chicken, rice and vegetables, three slices of carrots and a piece of sweet potato to be exact, which I ate simply because at that stage I was starving as was, I’m sure most every other person there, as no snacks or drinks were provided between the sandwich and lunch. There were chairs set up around the hall but no tables so we had to eat balancing the container of food on our laps. The City must really have little regard or respect for its senior citizens that they do not see the need to treat us with any dignity. It was incredibly sad to see that those who did not have a written invitation were told that they had to buy food. Food stalls were set up around the hall, but why invite people to a catered event and then sell food? It just doesn’t make any sense. As it was the middle of the month and most seniors had to already spend money to get there, I don’t see how they could still expect any of us to be able to afford to buy anything to eat. I feel very disappointed in the City. I must wonder whether the same type of poor quality event would be hosted in a more affluent area. Suzette Little, Mayoral committee member for social development and early childhood development, responds:On October 12, the City of Cape Town hosted a senior citizen event in partnership with the Cape Peninsula Organisation for the Aged (CPOA). We were joined by Age-in-Action, the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) and the South African Police Service (SAPS) to celebrate our senior citizens and the contribution they make to our society. The event, linked to International Day of Older Persons, is one of the many ways that the City acknowledges the mothers and the fathers of our city, breaking the stigma of ageism and addressing the challenges that many of our senior citizens face. The City invited and transported 500 senior citizens from various seniors clubs across the city to the event at the Athlone civic centre. An additional 500 seniors were invited by our partners Cape Peninsula Organisation for the Aged. The sandwich, cup of tea, and the lunch were served according to the City’s catering policy and every effort was made to ensure quality lunch for the 500 invited seniors. The CPOA does not provide catering for their members but provided food stalls selling quality snacks, food and beverages at nominal rates. These seniors who are all members of CPOA attend this event every year and are aware of this, as it is a normal practice. The programme for the day included educational and informative talks as well as entertainment. The City is committed to its seniors and in acknowledging their contribution to society and we make every effort to provide meaningful programmes and events for our seniors.last_img read more

first_img Share Sharing is caring! 861 Views   no discussions Share BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Thursday April 5, 2018 – The parent company of FirstCaribbean International Bank (FCIB) is pulling out of the region.Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC), which on October 14, 2002 joined with the London-based Barclays Bank PLC and combined their retail, corporate and offshore Caribbean banking business to launch CIBC FirstCaribbean, has now decided to sell its 91.5 per cent shares in the regional operations on the North American market.But while confirming the move, Debra King, the director of corporate communications with the Barbados-based subsidiary, said FCIB was staying put.“FirstCaribbean will remain the strong entity which it is today in the Caribbean, committed to serving our clients in the region. We have a strong management team in place that is capable of taking this business forward and delivering on our strategy of growing the bank,” King said.“This is an excellent opportunity for our business and we are looking to the future with great anticipation. It is a validation of all the hard work our team has done to position FirstCaribbean for growth and to continue to serve our clients,” she added.King explained that even though CIBC, a Toronto-headquartered financial entity, is a respected name in the market, it is not critical to FCIB’s brand presence over the long run.The bank spokesperson insisted FCIB had been operating with “great success” as an independent publicly-floated bank in the Caribbean, and would continue to do so.CIBC has filed a registration statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the proposed initial public offering (IPO) in the US of FCIB’s common shares.The number of shares to be offered and the price range for the proposed offering have yet to be disclosed.“In the event that FCIB proceeds with the listing [of CIBC’s shares on the New York Stock Exchange], CIBC’s intention would be to subsequently reduce its stake in FCIB as it makes sense to do so. CIBC’s growth efforts are focused on reinforcing its North American platform. The IPO of FCIB will allow CIBC to reallocate capital and senior management focus to areas of growth for them,” King stated.CIBC FirstCaribbean is the largest regionally-listed bank in the English and Dutch-speaking Caribbean. It has over 2,700 staff, 58 branches, 22 banking centres, and seven offices in 17 regional markets.After Barclays announced in 2006 that it would quit the Caribbean venture completely, CIBC gained majority-control, and announced five years later, in June 2011, that the bank would be renamed CIBC FirstCaribbean Bank “to be more closely aligned to the CIBC brand, while still maintaining the FirstCaribbean name and local identity”.center_img BusinessLocalNewsRegional CIBC Leaving the Caribbean, But FCIB Staying Put by: Caribbean 360 News – April 6, 2018 Share Tweetlast_img read more

first_imgIt’s fair to say that, so far, Chelsea have been the busiest Premier League club on the 2020 summer transfer market. Unable to buy players last summer, Frank Lampard and co. waited until after the January transfer window to announce the future transfer of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax before then making a move for RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner.But that isn’t it, as recent reports from France suggested the Blues have also targeted Sergej Milinković-Savić, currently contracted to Lazio.It was said Chelsea had ‘initiated contacts’ with the player’s representatives, and were being helped by Claude Makélélé, currently working as an advisor to those in charge at Stamford Bridge.Well, now we have Gazzetta dello Sport who say the Premier League side and Real Madrid have ‘started to move’ on Milinković-Savić, providing competition for both Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, and the ‘next weeks will be decisive’ to ‘measure the temperature of Sergej and his entourage’.As for the price, the €100m valuation from two years ago ‘is no longer relevant’, meaning it will have dropped.A lot could rest on the player, who may want to discover the Champions League with his current club next year, but we doubt convincing Lazio will be an easy task in itself in the first place.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

first_img Sunday morning the Leafs faced Greater Trail #1 in one of the semi-final games. Greater Trail defeated playoff favourites Couer d’ Alene earlier in preliminary round play 4-1. The Leaf’s were firing on all cylinders jumping out to a quick 5-0 lead after one period, before skating to a 12-1 victory. The game turned into a penalty filled contest with no fewer than 4 Greater Trail players being ejected from the game and ending with 65 minutes in penalties. Nelson came away with 24 minutes. Leafs goals came from Zarikoff with four, Spielman had three and Sookro and Grill adding a pair each. Assistant captain Ava Young chipped in with the other Nelson goal. The Leafs opened with a narrow 7-5 victory over a persistent Grand Forks team. Nelson’s goals came from Blair Sookro with two, Mike Zarikoff with four,  including an empty net goal with 12 seconds left, and Alex Laing.In Game 2 the Leafs defeated Greater Trail #3 5-2.Zarikoff finished with two goals, and singles came from Max Spielman, Nick Haydu, and Ethan Grill. The Leafs’ third game was against Boundary.  Nelson squeaked out a one goal victory during regular season play and expected to have their hands full. However, the Leafs  jumped out to a quick 5-1 lead by the end of the first period and cruised to an easy 11-2 victory.Zarikoff scored five times, with Sookro and Spielman each netting a pair and singles coming from Grill and Ava Young. The final featured the Leafs against a very strong Couer d’ Alene team that defeated Nelson earlier in the year 8-2. Couer d’ Alene struck first to end the opening period 1-0.  Midway through the second period Couer d’ Alene added two quick goals to end the period 3-0.Early in the third period Nelson coach Dave Zarikoff was handed an unsportsmanlike bench penalty for questioning an obvious icing call. Alex Laing was able to net a shorthanded goal and close the Couer d’ Alene lead to 3-1. With 6:29 left Mike Zarikoff fired one past Couer d’ Alene’s goaltender to close the gap to 3-2 but time ran out on the Nelson Minor Hockey squad.center_img The Nelson Bantam Leafs came within one goal of winning the West Kootenay Minor Hockey League banner recently in Castlegar. Couer d’ Alene built up a 3-0 lead en route to a 3-2 victory over the Nelson Leafs at the Bantam House Championships.”(Coaches) were very happy with the teams success all year,” said Leafs coach Dave Zarikoff.”The Leafs fought valiantly to try and tie it up,” Zarikoff added about the final game.”Unfortunately time ran out and Couer d’ Alene skated away with the banner.”Nelson went 3-0 in the preliminary round to end up seeded #1 going into the playoff round. Zarikoff said Nelson received outstanding goaltending all weekend from the duo of Kylan Palm and Josh Marsden while team Captain Noah Whiffen and Assistant Captain Cale O’Meara, along with Keanu Tromans, Young, and Haydu anchored the defense. Forward Noah Marsh was outstanding, often being the first player back and pestered teams all weekend with his checking.last_img read more
