New IMF Agreement will Inspire Confidence and Hope – PM

first_imgAdvertisements RelatedNew IMF Agreement will Inspire Confidence and Hope – PM By Glenis Rose, JIS Reporter RelatedNew IMF Agreement will Inspire Confidence and Hope – PM FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, said that the new agreement to be negotiated with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) will provide a measure of confidence to the business community, while offering hope for the Jamaican people. She was addressing the American Chamber of Commerce of Jamaica (AMCHAM) Speaker’s Forum Luncheon 2012, which was held Thursday Feb. 16 at the Ritz Carlton Golf Resort and Spa in Rose Hall, St. James. The Prime Minister said that as the Government looks to provide real solutions and tangible opportunities for personal development and economic advancement, it will be seeking to forge partnership with all stakeholders including the private sector. She argued that central to this new partnership is confidence, which will come when business leaders, investors and entrepreneurs, have a clear sense of direction.  “That is one of the reasons why we are moving to put in place a credible medium-term macro-economic programme with the IMF,” she stated. The Prime Minister lauded the work of AMCHAM in Jamaica, noting that the organisation has played a “tremendous role” in promoting business, trade and investment between the United States and Jamaica. “I know AMCHAM has been a solid and committed partner for over 25 years and I want to commend you,” she said. She noted that AMCHAM’s interests have not been confined to business, but includes enhancing the country’s social infrastructure and building the capacity of civic leadership. She mentioned a social intervention project undertaken by the organisation in the Grant’s Pen community, which she said, resulted in the transformation of that area, with crime and violence significantly reduced. “Since your intervention in this community, which was so important and so good, you would have noticed that we are not having the level of challenges in that area, and I want to commend you and also commend the people of Grant’s Pen,” she stated. The Prime Minister urged the organisation’s continued engagement in nation building for the years to come. “In emphasising the importance of this new era of public-private partnership…I invite your renewed commitment and continued contributions to achieving the development goals for our country through renewed partnership, increased investments, expanded business alliances and commercial activities,” she stated.                                           New IMF Agreement will Inspire Confidence and Hope – PM Finance & Public ServiceFebruary 17, 2012 RelatedNew IMF Agreement will Inspire Confidence and Hope – PMlast_img read more

Zimmerman split his touchdowns between the first and third quarters as well.Zimmerman led the Rangers to a quick start with 21 points in the opening period. On their first drive of the contest, the senior quarterback opened the flood gates with a 59-yard strike to Jacob Lindenmuth.After the defense forced a three-and-out, Zimmerman scored his first of two rushing touchdowns courtesy of Khalize Beamon and Connor Mesh. Mesh started the possession with a 46-yard sprint. After the offensive line recovered a misplayed snap, Beamon and Mesh split eight-yard runs. That opened up a six-yard sneak past the left pylon for Zimmerman.Zimmerman put an exclamation point on his performance in the third quarter. With the defense forcing yet another three-and-out, the 5-foot-8 senior galloped through the line of scrimmage and up the left side for a 60-yard touchdown.Finally, with the Titans attempting to put together a scoring drive and threatening in Rangers’ territory, Zimmerman jumped the passing lane and hustled 53 yards in the opposite direction to the end zone. This gave the Rangers a commanding 49-0 advantage midway through the third quarter.Beamon, Mesh and Samuel Guelli added rushing touchdowns of their own.

Warnock And Abrams Highlight ‘Illustrious Path’ For HBCU Grads

Posted On May 24 2021 by

first_img Legal Advocate Discusses Medical Abuse At Shut Down Georgia ICE Facility Share ‘It’s Fractured’: Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan On Healing Republican Party Add to My List In My List For Whom The Bell Rings Related Stories With the recent victory of Rev. Raphael Warnock and Stacey Abrams’ work in facilitating it, the community of Historically Black Colleges and Universities in Atlanta has a lot to be proud of. Alumni of Morehouse College and Spelman College, respectively, Warnock and Abrams’ legacies inspire those who have walked the same hallways they once did. “At the highest level in any profession, you can find HBCU graduates not just doing well, but thriving and setting the trend, framing the conversation,” said Anré Washington, a Morehouse graduate of 2013. Washington is a partner for the policy consulting firm Homegrown Strategy Group. He met Warnock as a student, and they worked together on protests and organizing. Since then, Washington has collaborated with him while working on advocacy, policy and voting rights. “I would say that that’s the value of an HBCU like Morehouse is that you are connected in an ongoing bond with brothers that you don’t know and brothers that have been here many years before,” Washington said. Washington said that he’s proud to see Warnock take the values and ideals they instilled in them at Morehouse to the U.S. Senate. He added that Warnock’s election speaks directly to the quality of an HBCU education.The NumbersHistorically Black Colleges and Universities account for 3% of schools that receive federal aid. Most heavily concentrated in the south, HBCUs were established after the Civil War to provide education for African Americans, who weren’t allowed to attend white schools due to segregation.From 1976 to 2010, the number of Black college students more than doubled, and HBCU enrollment jumped by 47%, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Enrollment fell in the last decade, but nationwide, 10% of Black college students attend an HBCU.According to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, 40% of Black Congressmembers attended an HBCU, along with 50% of Black lawyers and 80% of Black judges. “We have the capacity to lead in every field of achievement,” said Winford K. Rice Jr., a professor of religion at Morehouse.Rice is a 2014 Morehouse graduate and minister at Ray of Hope Christian Church in Decatur. He said that the success of HBCU alumni such as Warnock and Abrams illuminates an “illustrious path” for individuals to choose to attend an HBCU. However, he said it’s unfortunate that it takes public figures to be successful for people to recognize HBCUs as reputable.Impact On StudentsStacey Abrams graduated from Spelman in 1995. Her work as an elected official and with voting rights organizations in Georgia is a source of pride for the HBCU community. (Associated Press)Abrams’ career in government began at Spelman, where she served as the Student Government Association president. The Association’s current president, Spelman senior Fana HaileSelassie, said she’s encouraged by the two public figures.“I think they are the product of their community,” she said. “They didn’t get to where they are alone. They are the product of the village.”HaileSelassie said she and other student leaders had to work twice as hard to mobilize people to vote in a pandemic, but they had help from Abrams and Dr. Bernice King, daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who would speak at voter engagement events.“It’s more than a dream that when the work is put in, and the community stands behind you, your goals and aspirations are tangible and can be accomplished,” HaileSelassie said.Perhaps the most notable alumni from Morehouse, Dr. King, attended the school in the 1940s. Its current SGA president, Cameron Nolan, said that a big point of emphasis for Morehouse is King’s legacy. But, Warnock serves as a similar figure of representation today. Seeing Warnock, a Morehouse man, achieve his goals despite adversity is inspiring for Nolan.“[It’s an] an understanding of, OK, these are the caliber of individuals that Morehouse is producing. So who am I going to be? What’s going to be my legacy? I think that’s the major focus of Morehouse students,” Nolan said. Nolan said that Warnock’s election was an overall morale booster for the student body, despite things being different due to the pandemic. Students are pleased and excited to see what’s in store for the future of Morehouse, and he’s excited to see what’s in store for them.“[It’s] great to see that the people that I go to school with now or the friends that I have at Spelman and at Morehouse are going to be the people that somebody else is going to interview about,” Nolan said.last_img read more
