I for one will not want my daughter drinking contaminated water. ALL children should be taken care of as precaution. It is 8:30pm and still no call assuring normal business will resumes tomorrow. Anyone keeping their child home tomorrow need to be given an excused absence. Reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Gov.

first_img Share Share LifestyleTravel Regional airline to utilise new satellite tracking and communication systems by: – October 20, 2011 LA JOLLA, USA — The Caribbean’s newest low fare airline, REDjet, will use a fleet management and automated flight tracking satellite system provided by Blue Sky Network.REDjet’s aircraft [MD-82s] currently fly to Barbados, Trinidad, and Guyana and will service Jamaica and Antigua from November (with new routes being added regularly). It will use Blue Sky Network’s Iridium-based solutions to track every flight over the Caribbean Sea, as well as to maintain constant contact with pilots and operators.“When our existing communication system proved to be obsolete, the search began for a replacement that was competitively priced, had all the functionality, and wouldn’t require major modifications on our aircraft,” said REDjet’s chief operations officer, Kevin Dudley. “Blue Sky worked with our engineering department to come up with an installation plan; the end result has been one very satisfied customer. As part of REDjet’s unwavering commitment to the safety of our passengers, crew and aircraft, we conducted extensive searches for the appropriate technology and are confident that Blue Sky is the right fit.”The solution being used across REDjet’s fleet is Blue Sky Network’s FAA-approved D1000C tracking unit with the ACH1000 (the latter enables voice and text messages to be sent via the Iridium network). Tracking data will be viewed on SkyRouter, Blue Sky Network’s pioneering, web-based tracking portal.“We’re thrilled to have REDjet on board,” said Blue Sky Network CEO and founder, Jon Gilbert. “The D1000C with ACH is an ideal fit both for the REDjet planes and, as importantly, for where REDjet flies, a part of the world where satellite tracking solutions like ours are the only way to track and communicate with aircraft, and help ensure people’s safety and asset security.”Caribbean News Now Sharecenter_img 28 Views   no discussions Tweet Sharing is caring!last_img read more

first_imgIn what is turning out to be an interesting post-fight revelation Ayitey Powers says his spiritual father Bishop T.B. Johsua advised him not to fight on the date.In an exclusive post bout interview with Joy Sports at the Crystal Rose Hotel, Powers who spoke while receiving treatment from his physiotherapist said, “I’d like to apologize to my father T.B. Joshua who advised me not to fight on the given date. I cannot reveal the reason the Prophet gave me but I have to apologize to him because I went against his word.”According to Powers (real name Michael Ayitey Okine), Prophet T.B. Joshua knows a lot about him and has given him spiritual guidance over the years.“The reason why I went contrary to the directive from the man of God was that I did not want a repeat of the back and forth the preceded the maiden bout in Accra last year. I didn’t want to disappoint the fans who had asked for this bout for so many years thus the sacrifice,” he told Joy Sports while receiving a deep tone massage from his physiotherapist.The maiden edition of this bout which was staged before about 20,000 fans at the Accra Stadium on May 16, 2014 also had it fair share of troubles with two postponements. One of the reasons assigned to one of the postponements was a revelation by Prophet T.B. Joshua that a disaster bigger than May 9, 2001, would happened at the Accra Stadium.Powers after putting up a better-than-expected performance against Banku in front of about 10,000 fans at the Baba Yara Stadium in the early hours of December 27, 2015, failed to answer the bell for the 6th round. What was the reason? He suffered a dislocated right shoulder.Powers sat and leaned with his back firmly on the corner pad as his corner tried to get him to resume the fight. “But the pain was too much. The close to the end of the fight round I felt the dislocation and struggled to finish. It was very painful during the one minute break and my corner tried hard to restore it. I tried hard to overlook it but I couldn’t,” Powers said.Ayitey Powers, a former national middleweight champion, also revealed that his promoters had also worked out an international bout in the UK against journeyman Jimmy Campbell for January 22, 2016.  The loss to Bukom Banku (above. pictured) according to him could affect the UK fight. “I’m sad because the UK bout will be a big opportunity for me. I’m not sure if it will still come off, now that I’ve lost,” he added. Ayittey Powers lost the maiden clash to Banku in a unanimous decision with the score cards of judges Confidence Hiagbe, Roger Barnor and Emmanuel Brenya reading 109-117, 110-119 and 108-120 respectively.Powers, who was once a contender for the WBC International Middleweight and WBA Pan African Cruiserweight title, also says his career is not over. He was not specific as to when he will return to the ring but is sure he has a lot more to give to the sport. His professional record now stands at 21 wins 25 losses and a draw.On the Bukom Banku episode, he did not dismiss the possibility of a third bout. “Banku has defeated me twice, he is the champion, but you never know what will happen in the future,” he said. Powers has the unenviable record of winning 21 bouts, and lost 24. He’s drawn once.  CLICK HERE FOR EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS FROM THE FIGHT  –last_img read more

first_imgCommissioner Adam Silver has a real problem on his hands, and he needs to give fans answers, fast. The problem is intractable, it seems, devolving over the better part of the decade now. Silver must let us know: What is the NBA going to do to help out all these downtrodden big-market teams?Yes, sure, we’ve heard plenty recently about the plight the NBA’s smaller markets, how impossible it is these days for them to keep star players in place. But someone should be out there speaking up for the sad-sack big markets, whose billions in franchise worth apparently offer no discernable advantage in building a championship (or even playoff) team. MORE: The complete Porzingis trade timelineThursday was a watershed day for the bad times in big markets. The team that sits atop the Forbes list of the NBA’s valuation rankings, the Knicks, held a meeting with injured forward Kristaps Porzingis, the 23-year-old All-Star who averaged 17.8 points and 7.1 rebounds in his first three seasons. Porzingis told team brass that he wants to play for a winner, the unsubtle subtext being that the Knicks are not winners.That was reported around 2 p.m. By dinner time, Porzingis had been officially shipped off with Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee and Trey Burke to Dallas for second-year guard Dennis Smith Jr., the expiring contracts of DeAndre Jordan and Wesley Matthews and two future first-round picks.That’s a scant return for one of the most promising young players to land with the Knicks in the last 30 years. New York essentially dealt Porzingis for Smith, picks and cap space. The Knicks’ remaining high scorer is Emmanuel Mudiay (14.7 points per game).Then there are the poor Lakers, the No. 2 most valuable team in the NBA. An ESPN report noted that in trying to find a suitable deal for star forward Anthony Davis, the Pelicans had taken calls from every corner of the league. Except one team — yes, the Lakers.New Orleans GM Dell Demps averaged 3.0 points in 20 career NBA games. Magic Johnson is the Lakers president and in the Hall of Fame. But the Lakers couldn’t get Demps to pick up his phone. Woe is them!(ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski later reported Pelicans and Lakers executives eventually connected on the phone. Los Angeles finally caught a break!)There is some bitterness in the Pelicans’ front office about how things have unfolded with Davis this season, as the agent for LA star LeBron James — Rich Paul, who also represents Davis — has orchestrated what has become a clumsy exit from New Orleans for Davis. And there are those in the Pels front office who believe that Paul has acted, on some level, on behalf of the Lakers and perhaps even in coordination with them.It may wind up being a fruitless protest, but the Pelicans are making a point to not bend to the Lakers here in the week before the trade deadline. They could (and should) relent, but until then, the way they’re thumbing the mighty Lakers in the eye is admirable.All in all, it has not been a banner day for the NBA’s upper crust. The Knicks, already in the midst of 19 losses in their last 20 games, pulled off a shocking strip-down that should ensure their spot among the worst teams in the league. And the master plan to bring Davis to the West Coast has been stunted by the unwillingness of the 30th team on Forbes’ valuation list to be bullied by the Lakers.MORE: Fans work up NBA Trade Machine deals for Anthony DavisIt’s probably worth noting that the Knicks have not been to the playoffs since 2013, and they’re set to match the second-longest non-postseason streak in franchise history.Also, the Lakers are a game over .500 and currently out of the playoff picture. That would run their no-postseason string to six years, easily the longest in franchise history.For good measure, don’t forget Chicago, another big market on hard times. Though the Bulls are the league’s fourth-most valuable team, they’re also its fourth-worst team, at 12-40. They’ve limped through an embarrassing coaching change, endured a near-mutiny and suffered 10 losses of 10 points or more.Through it all, ownership has kept the same bungling front office — John Paxson and Gar Forman — in place, putting that trademark big-market loyalty on display.Of the top 15 teams on Forbes’ valuation list, only seven are currently in line for the playoffs. The other nine are in those smaller markets. Of course, eventually, the Knicks could turn around and use all this cap space they’ve created on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving this summer, and possibly land Duke star Zion Williamson with the No. 1 overall pick. Maybe the Lakers, too, can wear down Demps like an awkward high school kid desperate for a prom date. Maybe he answers the phone and agrees to send Davis to the Lakers.But the Pelicans could hold strong on sending Davis elsewhere. The Knicks, as recent history has shown, could wind up with a trove of cap space and no players willing to take it, and with bum luck in the draft lottery that leaves them scrambling for a decent prospect.It’s possible. So go on, shed a tear for those big markets. They need it.last_img read more
