For this reason, and out of an abundance of caution, we’ve decided to temporarily pause our operations.” The company said it is working with the Health Unit regarding a safe date to reopen.Toyotetsu informed its employees that all will be paid through to at least May 1, with more information on payroll to come.

Cuba to Provide Expertise in Manufacture of Solar Panels

Phillip Paulwell, who made the disclosure during the ceremonial switching on of lights in New Forest/Plumwood, Manchester on Wednesday, July 3, said that the Rural Electrification Programme (REP) Limited will guide the process.This is in keeping with the agency’s new mandate, which is focused on developing renewable energy solutions for those households further than three kilometres from the national grid, and promoting energy efficiency and conservation.Minister Paulwell, in his 2013/14 Budget Debate presentation in Parliament in May, informed that the REP will be renamed Jamaica Ener­gy Solutions Limited (JESL), and given a new role.He indicated at the time, that the renewable energy solutions to be developed by the agency, would target the remaining four per cent of rural households yet to receive electricity, in order to bring electrification island-wide to 100 per cent.He noted that the REP, since its inception in 1975, has successfully wired over 80,000 homes in rural communities, bringing the electrification rate in rural households to 96 per cent, which he contended, is “better than most countries in the world.”He said the Government is committed to electrifying the remaining four per cent of households, even while problems related to terrain in those areas, as well as distance from the national grid infrastructure, of more than three kilometres in most cases, makes bringing the grid to them unfeasible.He said it is for this reason that the focus of the REP has to be shifted to focus on renewable technologies.He said that REP Chairman, Rev. Dr. Garnett Roper, will guide this transition, which will also include providing project management services for the design and implementation of energy solutions for major housing initiatives by agencies of the state, espe­cially where low-income earners are the targeted beneficiaries.“The new entity will be mandated, as we have done with Wigton (Wind Farms Limited). Wigton is a successful Government venture making money for the Jamaican people. It is also producing electricity at the cheapest rate, cheaper than oil. And so, we need more wind farms. We need to incorporate more solar energy…that is the new mission of the REP,” Mr. Paulwell stated.Over 50 residents of New Forest/Plumwood have been provided with electricity by REP at a cost of just over $3 million.Contact: Douglas McIntoshcenter_img RelatedAll Jamaicans Must Have Access to Technology – State Minister Robinson Cuba to Provide Expertise in Manufacture of Solar Panels TechnologyJuly 5, 2013Written by: Douglas McIntosh Photo: JIS PhotographerScience, Technology, Energy, and Mining Minister, Hon.

Pakistan to auction 850MHz spectrum ahead of 1.8GHz band

first_img Pakistan’s Finance Minister approved a proposal to auction off the 850MHz band before holding an auction for the 1.8GHz spectrum that was unsold in the 4G sale in 2014.Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, who chaired a high-level telecoms meeting, agreed that an appropriate amount of spectrum needs to be made available to the telecoms sector, the Pakistan Observer reported. No date or quantity was set for the proposed auction.The meeting reviewed the spectrum demand outlook, while also considering the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority’s (PTA) market assessment report prepared by an international consultant.The consultant hired by the telecoms regulator reported in December that the market is not ready for another auction. It found mobile operators are struggling with low margins and aren’t interested in investing in the spectrum within the next 12 months. The operators also complained about high taxes, low return on investments and weak economic growth.The finance ministry pushed PTA to hold the auctions twice last year, but both times the sale was pushed back after all five operators said they would not participate. Joseph Waring joins Mobile World Live as the Asia editor for its new Asia channel. Before joining the GSMA, Joseph was group editor for Telecom Asia for more than ten years.

A Patriotic Opportunity

There were only a few days until the next concert, and the Glacier High School band was getting ready, working its way through a complicated, fast-paced piece of music.“OK, I’ve got to get something off my chest,” David Barr, band director and music teacher at GHS, said. “I’ve been thinking this for a while. Trumpets — don’t let it slow down in that section. You start with the right speed, then it slows.”To the untrained ear, the piece sounded like it had gone off without a hitch, but this band and its members are detail oriented and ready to fix tiny imperfections to create something magical.It’s in this spirit of passion and exuberance that the Glacier High School marching band hopes to raise enough money to attend and play in the 2019 National Memorial Day Parade in Washington, D.C.Montana Sen. Steve Daines nominated the Glacier High marching band for the honor of appearing in the parade, where they will be featured alongside bands from all 50 states on May 27. The American Veterans Center and Music Celebrations International are hosting the parade.The parade will also commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, which takes place on June 6.“It’s a huge honor,” Barr said. “I can’t wait for these kids who haven’t been to D.C. before to experience their Capitol. We talk a lot about patriotism and the music behind that, and that goes with this parade.”Among the educational sightseeing opportunities for the students will be a tour of Arlington National Cemetery with the students’ participation in a special U.S. military wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.While they’ve got the chops to be there, getting to D.C. will take work. The cost of this trip for each student is $1,600, including airfare, bus transportation in D.C., hotels, meals, and activities. Barr said he couldn’t expect his students’ parents to foot the full $1,600 bill, so each of the 90-plus band members are responsible for $750. Parents and students hope to make up the remaining balance of $70,000 through fundraising.So far, fundraising efforts include a specially labeled Montana Coffee Traders coffee, and potentially a musical gala dinner at the Flathead County Fairgrounds. Barr said the community should keep an eye on the band’s Facebook page for updated event information and an online donation page.Already, the band members have sold fruit and raffle tickets for a truck.“Anyone who donates to us, I feel honored that they would spend money on our students,” Barr said.Senior Evan Kohler, 18, said he was thrilled at the idea of rounding out his music career playing the tuba at Glacier with such a trip.“I’ve always been involved in band, and we went to Salt Lake City, and then Seattle,” Kohler said. “Now we could go more than 15 hours away to perform on the national stage.”“It’s the opportunity of a lifetime,” said fellow senior and trumpet player Haily Brown.Both students have played in a school band for seven years and love it for the simple reason that it lets them express themselves in a way nothing else can.“I love that it’s something different every day,” Kohler said. “There is so much you can do with music, and no matter what you do, you can always get better.”“It’s a way to speak without saying anything,” Brown, 18, said.As they made their way through the difficult musical piece preparing for the concert, the band worked in concert, a few dozen knees bobbing to the same rhythm and expecting the best of one another.“Hey, that was a really good rehearsal,” Barr told his band as they got moving to the next period.Donations can be sent to Glacier High School, c/o David Barr, 375 Wolfpack Way, Kalispell, 59901.last_img read more
