And after that it was carnival. And then after that it was COVID.”She alluded to the fact that all the accessories are already on island. According to Mrs Skerrit, everything should be ‘up and running soon’ possibly as soon as the end of the month.“And I also have to mention that just a little bit higher up where the Chinese are currently, once they are done with the hospital this area will be used for playing field and for a tennis court and we can accommodate netball as well,” she added.Mrs Skerrit also indicated that she plans to meet with her sports director and the vice-president of the Basketball Association of Dominica to chart a way forward. 201 Views   no discussions Tweetlast_img read more

Division of Forestry Offering Basic Wildland Firefighter Training Locally

first_imgLocal fire suppression foreman Patrick Quiner… Quiner: “Obviously we would prefer people that are in decent physical shape but that is something that can be improved on.” Quiner: “So we cover introduction to wildland fire behavior, human factors which is a study of why we do what we do, some decision making, and then the basic firefighter training as in the nuts and bolts of putting fires out.” For more information about the training contact Steve Scales at 260-4214 or Patrick Quiner at 260-4270. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Free basic training to be a wildland firefighter will be offered through the Soldotna Division of Forestry office beginning April 22. The training ranges from April 22 -24, and April 29 – May 1 with times of classes as follows: 6-10 p.m. on 4/22 and 4/29 and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on 4/23, 4/24, 4/30 and 5/1. That means a wildland firefighter trained in Alaska can be sent to any of the Lower 48 states to assist crews combat wildfires.

Australian scientists take to the streets to protest job cuts

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA—Abandoning their usual reserve, nearly 1000 scientists across the country downed instruments and grabbed placards this week to protest pending job losses at the nation’s leading research organization, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). “Scientists are not known for rushing to the barricades,” says Anthony Keenan of the CSIRO Staff Association, who adds that while staff members are concerned about job cuts at CSIRO, they are “dismayed” at the government’s short-sighted approach to science.  Job cuts at CSIRO are the direct result of the government’s decision last month to slash AU$115 million, or 16%, from the organization’s budget over 4 years. As many as 420 staff members, mostly scientists, could be out of work by June 2015, according to a memo circulated to staff members on 14 May by CSIRO chief Megan Clark. According to the Staff Association, the losses are “unprecedented.” Currently, CSIRO has 5500 positions. The pending cuts could leave the agency with 1000 fewer staff members than last year, and up to 2500 fewer than it had in the 1990s. The conservative government, elected last September, has also chosen not to appoint a science minister, the first time since the portfolio was created in 1931. Email Click to view the privacy policy.
