concerns and suggestions on the table a response is expected from Jessica Alba
at another meeting expected to be set for next week general secretary of the
NW Granville Valentine says among the major points to be dealt with is the
matter of the retention of the Jamaican workers during the upgrade of the plant
the workers were handed letters a sir big notice of redundancies on heroes’
day mr. Valentine says the unions requested that the letter be withdrawn
and reissued under the guidance of the Labor Ministry the company addressed the
matter right we had only one meeting at the Ministry of Labour they went and
they serve a lot of notice and a public holiday without the knowledge of the
ministry or any agreement between we at them so we requested that Athleta be
returned the wording of the letter is also ambiguous and as a result we also
believe that it should be it should be clear it should be understood whilst
you’re at the ministry that the ministry and and the parties understand that any
step that are gonna be taken must be decided there the blood bank has declared a blood
shortage crisis in the island blood drive organiser at the blood bank or

a preview of what’s coming up in this evenings health report in the next
edition of the health report we look at treating wounds if you are a diabetic
and you get a bruise on your tool a foot and where is that diabetic wounds are
not healed proper recall readily take a long time to heal so as you get a if you
if something’s stuck in a foot are bruised that’s the health report this
evening in primetime news and now for today’s healthy living tip keep the
dressing of the wound dry protect the wound from bumps pressure and the Sun
always wash hands before and after touching the wound or when changing
dressings watch for the signs of infection and seek medical advice if one
develops and in sports the owners of Jamaica
Tolliver’s have reaffirmed their stance to keep the franchise in Jamaica but
there are plans to shift the number of games to be played at Sabina Park for
the 2020 season TV Jays Ranade Brown reports for the Jamaica Tala was the
2019 Caribbean summer league season was a forgettable one and the team managed
just two wins from their ten games it was a whether the first time since the
CPR started in 2013 as five games were held at savanna pod this was made
possible through the support of the Jamaican government in the aftermath of
talks about moving the franchise but according to Tarawa CEO Jefferson Miller
government support did not equate to spectator support over the five years
first and foremost we ran in a business and we have to look at the bottom line
because there’s a tremendous amount of expenses and running a franchise in the
CPL but we do in consultation and we’re talking to management they’re talking to
government to see how we can move forward make sure but if you look at it
last year we had a two game surrender with almost all of games what I can see
from force in Jamaica is that they love winners and a few winning they’re going
to come out if you’re losing you’re not going to support
but while plans of movie of the franchise have been shoved the owners
are still looking for other avenues of maximizing their investments my
commitment is to probably have two games at Fulani
that’s free games there and that’s that’s what I’m looking to do next year
so to answer your question yes the Jamaica would be the location for all
five games Minna also hinted at Chris Gayle and
Andre Russa committing to the team for next season we saw us poking a Christian
of spoken to Andrea and again we are looking through a total reassessment of
the team and that would occur join the trough and before and after his wrath in
the meantime the tower was donated cricket gear to two young players on
Monday former papeon High player Shamar Edwards
was grateful for the equipment the other plan was national under-19 captain Kurt
McKenzie who recently returned from a West Indies on the 19 cam I always I

    Indecom is one of the reason why crime and violence is on the rise in Jamaica , these gun men gained so much strength since this body became popular, not withstanding police officers are not adequately paid , hence that leads to domestic disputes spouses getting financially frustrated, not to mention a police officer can’t properly conduct his / her duty without them being scrutinized by indecom , it’s like walking on egg shells, What do u think going happen? The police are going to turn a blind eye to crime ..resign as fast as they came run from problems
