It’s a frame up

first_imgMany law firms like to make a show of putting a nice piece of art on the wall, in an attempt to look highbrow. But it’s fair to say Sussex firm Burt Brill & Cardens has paid more than lip service to the local arts scene, having injected nearly £400,000 over the years into sponsoring Brighton’s Burt Brill & Cardens Graduate Show. Managing partner David Edwards says the firm has sponsored the art show for the past 16 years. Mind you, you would think he’d have learned by now how to hang a picture the right way uplast_img

first_img Share LocalNews Junior tourism minister to host health & wellness symposium by: – August 17, 2012 Sharing is caring! Share Tweetcenter_img Share 23 Views   no discussions 2011 Junior Tourism Minister, Kitwani Carbon.A Dominican student, who is the 2011 Caribbean Tourism Organization’s (CTO) Junior Minister of Tourism, has appealed to businesses for financial assistance to host a one day health and wellness symposium.Kitwani Carbon won that title at CTO’s conference in St. Martin on September 17th, 2011.She presented on the promotion of the wellness sector as being critical in enhancing Dominica’s tourism product. Carbon capitalized on the fact that Dominica’s topography makes it ideal for promotion of wellness activities and is well known for its centenarians, thus making healthy living an ideal component of the Dominican tourism product.The symposium is carded for 27th August, 2012 to educate the public on the importance of health and wellness.“The main objective is to give the youth, the general public which includes stakeholders of the tourism industry, a greater knowledge of the importance and benefits of health and wellness to our tourism product. We want to spread knowledge of obesity, CNCD’s; we want to add more promotion to our local teas and herbal remedies”.The symposium will deliberate on how health and wellness could be into incorporated into one’s lifestyle as well as its economic benefits.Carbon believes that Dominica’s tourism product could be enhanced by including sustainable tourism, sports tourism and local remedies. “We must go beyond that and market it [Dominica] in terms of sports tourism and of course we have our local remedies, our natural cuisine that we do market as our local food. We can go beyond that and market it as something good for athletes or in a pre-natal program. It’s all part of using what you already have as a means of bringing more people to your country”.She has written to several businesses and has appealed to them to support this venture.“I’d like to encourage all business…to come onboard because you really need your health. It is a wonderful initiative and I’d like the entire country to be a part of it”. CARICOM heads of government have also set aside a day dubbed, Caribbean Wellness Day, to promote healthy lifestyles within the Caribbean and this will be observed on September 8th, 2012.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

first_imgAdvertisement yrgNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs50yWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E7av( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 6fb10Would you ever consider trying this?😱cfgCan your students do this? 🌚evRoller skating! Powered by Firework The All India Football Federation started their Grassroots Development Programme back in 2008 with Mizoram being the first state to organise a grassroots course in October of that year. In subsequent years similar projects have been launched in Bengal, Chandigarh, Maharashtra, Manipur, Assam, Goa and Kerala. Though, AIFF’s Head of Youth Development Mr Richard Hood believes that the methods of engagement with football have been very limited but the new model of the Baby Leagues has the highest potential to create the change.Advertisement The entire concept of the newly inaugurated Baby Leagues is to instill a will to win for the budding football enthusiasts in the nation who want to take football as a career. Big names like Bhaichung Bhutia and IM Vijayan had instilled to become professional players since childhood but then they never had 100 games a year to improve consistently as kids. In Japan, children are engaging with the sport for 52 weeks in a year whereas, in India, it’s hardly 3 weeks.Advertisement The entire concept of the Baby League in India is coming from the South and Central American countries like Uruguay, Argentina, Mexico, Chile and Colombia, which Richard Hood says contributed about 7000 players worth about 3.5 billion dollars in the last transfer window.Kolkata, the mecca of football is known for its rich history of the sport and the proficient players it has produced. For the first time in Bengal, the AIFF Baby League is going to take place in the city of Joy. An active Sports Events company namely Federation De Sports Association are an operator of the Baby League in Kolkata. The league is to be divided into 3 categories ( U-8, U-10, U-12). Each age group will be divided into 8 teams. The League in Kolkata starts from 18th November till 19th February. Each team has a mere registration fee of 3000/- and the venue for the league will be in South Kolkata area.Advertisement For Indian Football to succeed, this is the baby steps taken forward and a proper development model which ‘catches them young’. Every ground in India where the Baby Leagues shall take place, keeping aside the beautiful sight of children playing, there will be some sure spotting of genius. Also Read :National Sports Awards 2018 Roundup Advertisementlast_img read more
