HEART trainees to Repair JUTC Buses

first_imgRelatedWork Commences on Granville to Retirement Road in St. James RelatedHEART trainees to Repair JUTC Buses FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) and the HEART Trust/ NTA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will see JUTC buses being repaired by persons trained by the organization, at a depot on Lyndhurst Road, in Kingston. Speaking at the signing ceremony at the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing, in Kingston, on March 13, Portfolio Minister, Dr. the Hon. Omar Davies, said the initiative will save money, and will also utilize the expertise of locally trained individuals.“It is a multipurpose approach. We will be simultaneously utilizing the expertise and training (of) young people through the Jamaican German Automotive School (JAGAS) and we will be saving significant amounts in terms of foreign exchange… What we are seeking to do is to utilize our own young people, trained to the highest international capabilities, to carry out such rehabilitation,” he said.He explained that the initiative follows a plan by the previous administration to repair JUTC buses in Brazil, as the cost of that move was “prohibitive”.Dr. Davies said part of the depot will be reconfigured and retrofitted to ensure that the required work will be undertaken effectively.In his remarks, Minister of Education, Rev. the Hon. Ronald Thwaites, said under the initiative the damaged vehicles of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) will also be repaired.“This will hopefully enable a far more economical way of keeping the police vehicles serviceable and it will also afford a tremendous opportunity for the HEART trainees to be exposed, not only to the restoration of buses, but also of every other kind of vehicle in the police fleet,” he said.Rev. Thwaites said the move is a tremendous opportunity for the advancement of training within the island.“The dream is for the day when any young person who wishes to be trained and certified at the highest levels…will come there, be assessed by HEART and avail themselves, not only of the theoretical studies, but the practical engagement and the opportunities of earning after being certified,” he said.Board Chairman of the JUTC, Rev. Garnet Roper, said there are approximately 113 buses at the facility in various stages of disrepair.He pointed out that the depot at Lyndhurst Road will be occupied by the JCF Motor Vehicle Repairs Division and the JUTC/JAGAS/HEART enterprise.By Chris Patterson JIS Reporter RelatedHEART trainees to Repair JUTC Busescenter_img HEART trainees to Repair JUTC Buses TransportMarch 15, 2013 Advertisementslast_img read more

Jason Day starting to draw comparisons with Tiger Woods

Reverse Mortgages: Worth the Risk?LendingTree Mortgage Quotes There Are 7 Types of Irish Last Names – Which One Is Yours?Ancestry Sponsored Links Woods hasn’t played since August. He hasn’t won in three years.Part of his time appears to be spent on sending text messages to Day, who never fails to mention how much he has leaned on his idol for advice on how to play, how to think his way around the golf course, how to close out tournaments.At the moment, Day looks like a suitable replacement.His work ethic is fierce. He hits it long, straight and can hit a 3-iron higher than the pine trees lining the fairways. His iron play is among the best. His scrambling? He got up-and-down 85 percent of the time, the highest rate of anyone at The Players Championship. And, for the most part, he felt as if he could make anything with his putter.“It’s no coincidence he’s No. 1 in the world,” Justin Thomas said. “He drives it extremely far, extremely straight. He hits it to the moon, so he can access pins that most people can’t. His short game is ridiculous. I think I’ve pretty much covered it all there when it comes to the golf.”Adam Scott played with his fellow Australian during a practice round and saw him oozing with confidence.Scott knows that look.When he was an amateur, Scott played a practice round with Woods in Las Vegas before Woods went over to Pebble Beach for the 2000 U.S. Open, which he won by 15 shots. What always stood out about Woods is not that he won, and won big, but that he did it for so long.“I always try to explain how good you feel after one win,” Scott said. “And I try to imagine how good Tiger felt just playing five years into his pro career having won like 50 events, and imagine how you’d feel confidencewise. And Jason must be kind of feeling something like that at the moment. And that’s an incredibly nice way to walk out on the golf course. And you can see it with Jason.“You can see there’s that calmness inside him — calm confidence — and the way he’s walking around. He’s got that kind of unbeatable look about him.”He has looked that way ever since he left that birdie putt short on the 18th green at St. Andrews that kept him out of the playoff at the British Open. Day found something that week — a combination of desire and belief — and he has parlayed that into a run Scott referred to as “Tigeresque.”He won the Canadian Open the following week. He set a major championship record at 20-under par to win the PGA Championship. He won two FedEx Cup playoff events, though that didn’t trump all that Spieth did last year.And after a slow start following a long winter’s break, Day hit his stride with a wire-to-wire victory in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, and he was just as dominant the following week at the Dell Match Play. He won seven matches, and only one of them reached the 18th hole at Austin Country Club.And now this.Day began his week by tying the course record with a 63 and breaking the 36-hole record with 15-under 129. All that stopped him from more marks were greens that got away from the PGA Tour, faster than anyone could recall. Day made two double bogeys on the front nine, and both times answered with birdies.He was on the ropes again Sunday — a bogey on No. 6, avoiding another bogey by making a 15-foot putt on No. 7, and then taking three chips from 40 feet right of the green on the par-5 ninth and having to make a 6-foot putt just to salvage bogey.Spieth tweeted Sunday night that Day’s bogey putt was “possibly most underrated shot of the day. Gathered emotions knocked it in and led to a clutch back nine. Great win.” Day agreed. Asked the most significant shot he hit Sunday, he didn’t hesitate to mention that putt.“Probably the most crucial putt of this tournament for me,” he said.Day has won seven of his last 17 starts, and the confidence is growing. The scary part for the rest of golf is that the celebration doesn’t last long.“This is great to be The Players champion,” Day said. “But now once tonight is done and tomorrow starts, it’s another week. I have to get ready and prepare for the next tournament coming up, because it’s never enough. Winning is never enough. And I’ve got to try and do it as much as I can before my time is over.”,He won The Players Championship for his seventh victory in the last 10 months, and all he could talk about was winning more. He is No. 1 in the world by an increasingly large margin over Jordan Spieth, and his points average is the highest of any player since Tiger Woods in the late summer of 2013.Day wants to go higher.“Keep pushing,” he said Sunday after his four-shot victory. “Yeah, keep pushing, because Tiger says he’s going to kick my butt when he comes back, so I’m going to try and extend that gap. So if he does come back and he’s turned into Tiger Woods again, I’ve got to watch my behind.”center_img Woods hasn’t played since August.

Geocaching Claims 2X Participants as Foursquare, Launches New Android App

first_imgGeocaching, the game of finding objects hidden around the world using a GPS device, is believed to have 5 million participants worldwide, according to leading commercial portal Geocaching.com. That company released a new geocaching app for Android this morning, with a price tag of $9.99. With more than 5 million participants, Geocaching.com calls the practice “the most popular location-based game on Earth.” That’s a number not for one particular company, but an estimate of all the geocaching participants across different platforms. Still, the game is typically thought of as a pretty nerdy pass-time, but it remains twice as big as the much hyped location startup Foursquare. Are we Foursquare fans missing out on something?While Foursquare in particular has garnered a huge amount of media attention, it is just one of many different types of location-based services. As a service based on social sharing of your location, it may be less appealing to many people than are other service that leverage, but don’t share, where you are. Location based social networks may be more difficult for people to understand, as well.Foursquare relaunched yesterday with a new emphasis on features that could be described as geofencing: an option to receive push notifications from trusted sources or to-do items when you check-in within a certain proximity of associated locations. That’s an important differentiator between the startup and the new Facebook Places. Might Foursquare implement a geocaching-type feature as well? One thing’s for certain, these new location-based social games are more interesting, more innovative and more compelling for technology-focused press to talk about than old fashioned (10 year old) geocaching. More people appear interested in playing geocaching so far, though.
