Residents of Sawyers in Trelawny are hailing the upgrading work done on the community’s primary school by the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF). The project, undertaken at a cost of $21 million, included construction of a new sanitation block and reading room, erection of perimeter fencing, provision of water tanks, and an industrial stove and freezer for the canteen. Clevy Armstrong, who was one of the first students to attend the school when it opened in 1948, expressed gratitude to JSIF. He said the improvements will enhance learning at the institution. “The community boasts a splendid refurbished building to accommodate our children in a clean, hospitable, sanitary and healthy learning environment. It is also a conducive environment for our teachers, who are now more energised to work with our children so that they can learn better,” Mr. Armstrong said at the recent handing over ceremony. He noted that the community has been given a lasting legacy. “JSIF, you have made our dream come true; you have left us a legacy. We will stand by the teachers to see to it that no vandalism takes place, and that everything is maintained and kept to the best,” he stated. “We want you to know of the great significance this is to us in Sawyers and surrounding communities. This is a very valuable gift which will be highly cherished at all levels, and we are grateful to all who contributed,” Mr. Armstrong added. Principal of the institution, Shelly-Ann Griffiths, said the school is a “beacon” in the community and has vowed to protect it for the lasting development of the area. Longtime teacher at the school, Patricka Clarke, stated that the improved and secure environment will provide a boost for the 106 students and six teachers. “I am truly happy. Children will be coming to a very safe environment, bathroom facilities are here, and a kitchen, where they will get warm meals every day,” she noted. Meanwhile, Education Officer with the Ministry of Education, Linda Miller, urged the school community to take responsibility for the “wonderful, new learning environment” which they have been provided. “We are going to protect Sawyers Primary School and we are not going to destroy it. This new school belongs to the community, and we have to take the very best care of it,” she stated. By Garfield Angus, JIS Reporter
LUXEMBOURG – The moods in Britain and the European Union swung between hope and gloom on Monday over an intractable dispute about the Irish border — shifts that came only two days ahead of a summit once seen as the last moment to reach a deal on Britain’s divorce from the bloc.After a flurry of weekend meetings had raised expectations for a Brexit agreement only to dash them again, EU and British leaders sought to keep alive the possibility that Wednesday’s summit could see a Brexit breakthrough, despite their conflicting stances.After a year and a half of talks aimed at a smooth breakup, both sides were still dogged by the same issue — how to ensure that no hard border is created between the EU’s Ireland and Britain’s Northern Ireland once Brexit happens on March 29.EU Council president and summit host Donald Tusk searched for a positive outlook.He used a quote saying “It always seems impossible until it’s done” before adding himself “let us not give up.” At the same time, he acknowledged that a breakup with no rules in place “is more likely than ever before.”Despite a failed meeting Sunday between the two sides’ Brexit negotiators, British Prime Minister Theresa May told the House of Commons in London on Monday that “I do not believe the EU and the UK are far apart.”Yet a chasm remains over a solution for the Irish border.The EU wants Northern Ireland to stay in its customs union to avoid a hard, policed land border between it and Ireland. But May says that would create “a border in the Irish Sea” between two parts of the United Kingdom — a scenario that she and Britain will not accept.Britain is proposing instead to keep all of the U.K. in a customs union with the bloc — but only temporarily. Tying Britain to the EU on customs would limit the U.K.’s power to strike new trade deals around the world — a key goal of those who voted to leave the EU.“I need to be able to look the British people in the eye and say this ‘backstop’ is a temporary solution,” May told the lawmakers.Insisting that a Brexit divorce deal was “achievable,” May said the border dispute should not “derail the prospects of a good deal and leave us with the no-deal outcome that no one wants.”May is under intense pressure from her Conservative Party and its parliamentary allies not to give any more ground in Brexit negotiations.May’s political allies in Northern Ireland, the Democratic Unionist Party, stand ready to scuttle a Brexit deal over the Irish border issue. DUP Brexit spokesman Sammy Wilson said “it is probably inevitable that we will end up with a no-deal scenario” over Brexit.Many fear that any return to customs checks and other controls on the Ireland-Northern Ireland border could revive tensions between Northern Ireland’s Irish Catholic community and its British Protestant one. More than 3,700 people were killed in Northern Ireland amid 30 years of violence between the two groups and Britain before a 1998 peace deal.Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney, speaking at a meeting Monday of EU foreign ministers in Luxembourg, said the delays in solving the border issue were frustrating. He suggested that May was reneging on part of Britain’s commitment, made in December, to ensure that there is no hard border on the island of Ireland.He said a backstop “cannot be time-limited.”“Nobody wants to ever trigger the backstop, but it needs to be there as an insurance mechanism, to calm nerves that we’re not going to see physical border infrastructure re-emerging,” Coveney said.The border impasse makes it is almost impossible that EU leaders will reach a Brexit deal at their summit this week. The British and EU parliaments need to approve any deal, a process that could take months.German Chancellor Angela Merkel, perhaps the strongest voice in the EU, insisted Monday that May should not count on the EU to blink first for fear of losing valuable business. Merkel said Germany wants an orderly departure of Britain from the bloc “but not at any price.”EU negotiators and leaders have said that Britain should not seek to cherry-pick the best parts of staying in the EU without the costs and responsibilities.“We must not allow our single market, which is really our competitive advantage, to be destroyed by such a withdrawal,” Merkel said told Germany’s main exporters’ association. “And if it doesn’t work out this week, we must continue negotiating, that is clear — but time is pressing.”If Britain leaves the EU without an agreement on future relations, there could be chaos — tariffs would go up on trade, airlines could no longer have permits to fly between the two regions, and freight could be lined up for miles at border crossings as customs checks are restored overnight.The EU has said it is willing to call an extra meeting in November if needed to seal a Brexit deal, but only if there was decisive progress this week.“I figure November or December is the best opportunity for a deal,” said Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar. “This is a dynamic situation.”As the chances of Britain crashing out of the EU without a deal rise, so do calls from pro-EU campaigners in Britain for a new referendum — dubbed a “People’s Vote” — on whether to accept a divorce deal or stay in the bloc.Several opposition lawmakers, and even a few Conservatives, stood in Parliament on Monday to call for a new Brexit referendum.“We had a people’s vote,” May replied. “It was called the referendum and the people voted to leave.”___Lawless reported from London.

BEIJING — A Chinese government spokesman says Beijing will “immediately implement” terms of a tariff cease-fire with Washington and is “full of confidence” a trade agreement can be reached within 90 days.The Commerce Ministry spokesman, Gao Feng, said Thursday that talks will start by focusing on trade in farm goods, energy and automobiles.Asked to confirm President Donald Trump’s statement that Beijing promised to immediately buy American goods, Gao said China will “immediately implement the consensus reached by the two sides on farm products, cars and energy” but said nothing about purchases.Trump agreed Saturday to postpone U.S. tariff hikes in a fight over technology by 90 days while the two sides negotiate.China has promised to act quickly on the agreement but failed to release details, rattling financial markets.The Associated Press
Mumbai: Actor Shreyas Talpade, who is gearing up for the release of his next film titled ‘Setters’, has said that there are no similarities between his film and Emraan Hashmi starrer ‘Why Cheat India’. Shreyas Talpade, accompanied by his co-actors Aftab Shivdasani, Ishita Dutta, Sonnalli Seygall, director Ashwini Chaudhary and producers Vikash Mani and Narendra Hirawat, was interacting with the media at the trailer launch of his upcoming film in Mumbai on Thursday. ‘Setters’ sheds light on the mafia and corrupt practices prevailing in the Indian education system. Notably, Emraan Hashmi’s recent release ‘Why Cheat India’ also highlighted corruption in the education system. When asked about the similarities between the two films, Shreyas said, “I haven’t watched ‘Why Cheat India’ yet. People may try to find similarity between the two films but I feel both films are really different.” “The modus operandi of the people that we have shown in our film is very fascinating. When I heard story of this film, I felt that their way of operating is bit filmy but later, I realised that such incidents still take place in our country,” Shreyas added. Shreyas said he learned Banarasi language to play the film’s character. “I have learnt Banarasi language to play my character in the film. I have also worked on how these people operate, how they carry themselves in public and how they behave with each other,” he said. Shreyas said that he feels fortunate to be a part of the film, “I feel fortunate that Ashwini (Choudhary) ji thought of me to play this particular character as I have played comic characters in my career in most films. I feel really happy to be part of this film because as an actor, you always try to play various kinds of characters. So, once I got the opportunity I put in complete effort to play this character.’ Set in Banaras, Jaipur, Mumbai and Delhi, ‘Setters’ is scheduled for release on May 3, 2019.
Karachi: Pakistan on Monday released 55 Indian fishermen and five civilians as a “goodwill gesture” amidst tension between the two countries after the Pulwama terror attack, according to a media report.

According to the Edhi Foundation, a non-profit social welfare organisation in Pakistan, Rs 5,000 was given to the fishermen by the foundation and they will send them to Wagah Border via special buses. According to the lists exchanged by both sides in January, there are 347 Pakistani prisoners in Indian jails, 249 of whom are what the spokesman described as civilians and 98 fishermen, the report said. Pakistan’s announcement to release the fishermen came amidst escalating tensions between India and Pakistan after a suicide bomber of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror group killed 40 CRPF personnel in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 14.

You would think the only player in Major League Baseball history to hit .300, have 30 home runs and drive in 100 runs for 10 consecutive seasons would be the highest-paid player in baseball — but he’s not. St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols isn’t even the highest-paid player on his team. That would be outfielder Matt Holliday, whose $120 million contract he signed last year is $20 million more than what Pujols received in 2004. Don’t get me wrong, $100 million is a lot of money. But when it comes to professional sports, and especially baseball, Pujols is vastly underpaid for the numbers he puts up. The fact that Hiroki Kuroda made more during the 2010 season than Pujols just doesn’t make sense. And that you just asked yourself who Hiroki Kuroda is, is my point exactly. Now, maybe you’re thinking that the Cardinals just pulled a Bronx Bombers and have two of the highest-paid guys in the league — but Pujols isn’t even in the top 25 when it comes to his annual salary as of the end of the 2010 season. That’s a little hard to wrap my head around, considering former Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox said he would give Pujols $50 million a season. Cox is not far off. A good barometer of where Pujols stands is comparing him to New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez. They both have put up consistent numbers over the years, except for income. For the 2010 season, they put up somewhat similar numbers, with Pujols batting .042 higher with 12 more home runs and A-Rod having seven more RBIs. Rodriguez’s annual salary for the 2010 season, $33 million, was more than double what Pujols made. Pujols will creep a little closer to that $33 million because of the Cardinals exercising their option for 2011, which will put him at a base salary of $16 million for 2011. But still nowhere close to A-Rod status. The Cardinals had offered Pujols a contract extension earlier in the year, which some baseball insiders reported to be in the vicinity of 10 years, $200 million, but Pujols respectfully declined. And he was right to decline that. He knows what his value is, and the Cardinals are coming up short on their offer. It’s like any other profession: If you are great at what you do, someone will pay you what you are worth. It has been rumored that Pujols is looking for $300 million, but there is no way he’s going to get that, especially if he “wants to be a Cardinal forever,” like he says. $300 million would be a little steep for a team whose payroll is just more than $93 million. But that is the beauty of America and free agency: If you don’t like the offer, you can look somewhere else. It won’t come down to that, though. The Cardinals and Pujols will secretly negotiate during the season and work out a deal that satisfies both parties. Prediction: 9 years, $262 million.
