Emancipation Day Message by Prime Minister, the Hon. Portia Simpson Miller

first_imgMy fellow Jamaicans at home and in the Diaspora, it gives me great joy to greet you on this special Emancipation Day! This year we celebrate the 175th anniversary of full freedom from slavery. Now more than ever we must draw on the history of our ancestors, the spirit of our ancestors and heed their call – a call captured in our theme of this year’s Emancipation and Independence celebrations: “Celebrating Jamaica: Triumphant, Proud and Free”.We are triumphant, we are proud and our freedom allows us to chart the course we want for ourselves. In our ancestors’ names and ours we define that course. On that course I speak triumph. I speak national pride. I speak victory. I assert our freedom to be.Emancipation represented the pillar and ground of all our civil liberties. There could be no meaningful celebration of an independent state without the achievement, and hence celebration of personal liberty. It is important that as Jamaicans who so zealously guard our freedoms, that we take time to contemplate the meaning of Emancipation. It is important that we celebrate its roots in our restless and ceaseless struggle for freedom; that we vow to eliminate any legacy of what one scholar of history refers to as the “indigestible fishbone of slavery.”Our ancestors never lost sight of the ideals of human dignity and human rights, even when they were so shamelessly denied and so mercilessly trampled upon by their enslavers. They claimed freedom as their unchallengeable right. They refused to resign themselves to the inferiority and the sub-human, status that was foisted on them. There was something incredible within them that caused them to insist on their right to liberty, despite their circumstances.This insistence on freedom and human rights is our heritage, fellow Jamaicans. It is a heritage of resilience, perseverance, resourcefulness; a heritage of a stubborn and defiant affirmation of our human dignity. It was that indomitable spirit which caused the Maroons to stand up to the British in their quest to secure their freedom. The result of that was the momentous Treaty of 1738/39 – 275 years ago.In addition to these successful campaigns by the Maroons, there were other indications – from Taino times to the Sam Sharpe-led war – that our ancestors “refused to be, what they wanted them to be”; that like Marlon James tells us, they would eventually say “enough done be enough”.Our ancestors demonstrated that uncompromising spirit again and again in 1673, 1690 and 1760 through Tacky’s battles; in 1824 with the Argyle Campaign in Hanover and again in the all-island 1831/1832 Emancipation uprising led by Sharpe. Over 600 of his supporters suffered along with him in the aftermath of that war for liberation. But, they did not suffer in vain.Those who punished our ancestors knew very well that punishment was excessive. The history books tell the tales of our ancestors, including Susan James who received 200 lashes. Governor Belmore, her enslaver knew of the pain he inflicted; but he defended its infliction anyway.In 1832 he admitted:“I regret to state, that in suppressing this most calamitous rebellion, many slaves have perished in the field, and numbers have been executed after trial, but the audacity of the rebels was so great, that striking examples were found indispensably necessary, for mistaken [leniency] would have only operated as an indirect encouragement to the disaffected to persevere in their lawless designs”. As we look back on those times, we can justifiably say, “Thank God for our audacious ancestors!” Their audacity resulted in the Emancipation Act that came into action in 1834; Their audacity resulted in the end of Apprenticeship and Full Free in 1838; That audacity led to continued protests against low wages, unfair labour practices; landlessness; injustice and the attempt to block worker representation. Their audacity allowed the Trade Union Movement to develop and accelerate the decolonization movement so that today we can proclaim that we are “triumphant, proud and free’!That freedom was not a demonstration that the enslavers had evolved in their goodness or had developed a generosity of spirit overnight. Our freedom came because of our ancestors’ blood, sweat and tears.As historian Richard Hart puts it: it was the “slaves who abolished slavery”. He speaks of those, some of whom I honour today in the African tradition of saying their names – Catherine Brown and the women of Cascade Pen, Caroline Smith of Lacovia, Sarah Jackson of Ginger Hill who all served in Sam Sharpe’s rebel army! They demanded nothing less than full freedom and I can imagine the joy, the unspeakable joy, the excitement, indeed the ecstasy, which greeted that first Emancipation Day when those who survived the war lived to see the day!Why is it important to keep these things at the forefront of our minds as we move along our journey as a people? The words of Professor Don Robotham provide a stark reminder. He said, “Abolition (of slavery) had a direct and practical meaning to people: No more whipping, no more treadmill, no more rape and arbitrary brutality, no more being at the mercy of the overseer and the driver. No more being the property of another human being to be worked, rented, leased, attached, inherited, bought, sold and used at will”. It is therefore appropriate that we both celebrate and contemplate on this Emancipation Day. We must celebrate Emancipation with the same spirit of jubilation as the workers of the time did. At Emancipation, there was a whole week of celebrations before workers returned to work.As we take one day to reflect, our celebration must be seen in our commitment to the furtherance of our people’s mission, as we return to work and build our nation. As we contemplate, let us honour our historians who have ensured, through their research and scholarship, that we never forget the travails and triumphs of our people.Ours is now the struggle for full liberation. That liberation must come in the form of economic emancipation and further social evolution. We are now in charge of our own house and our destiny. We have to fashion our future. We have to set our economic house in order.Our ancestors were not afraid to take tough decisions and neither should we. It is in the name of these brave ancestors that we call on those who trespassed against them to do the right thing as we in the Caribbean explore all the avenues related to reparation.We have to now unite around a common goal. We have to ensure that we build consensus; that we elevate cooperation over confrontation; that we mend fences rather than engender foes and that we choose participation over passivity.Fellow Jamaicans, let us draw on the strength of our forebears to meet whatever challenges lie ahead. Let us meet those challenges with courage and determination. Let us swim into life’s billowing waves. Let us embrace our inner shouts of victory.National Hero Marcus Mosiah Garvey, at an Emancipation Day rally in New York in 1922 said, “I trust that each and every one of you will, therefore, realize that you have a duty which is incumbent on you; a duty you must perform because your forbears who suffered, who bled and who died had hopes that are not yet completely realized.” My fellow Jamaicans, the same is true of us today.The baton has been passed to us. We must run this leg of the journey, holding it fast to hand to those who will carry it onwards for the next glorious leg.Brothers and Sisters, as the negro spiritual urges, let us keep our lamps trimmed and burning as we move forward, as poet Maya Angelou says–and I quote:“Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear – I rise Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise, I rise, I rise.” Let us arise and build Jamaica Land we love.Happy Emancipation,God Bless Jamaica, land we love and God bless us all Emancipation Day Message by Prime Minister, the Hon.

Casual Freddie

first_imgSAN DIEGO – Dressed in board shorts with an Air Jordan hat pulled low on his forehead, Fred Couples ambled up the ninth fairway on Torrey Pines’ North Course joking with Tiger Woods and making fun of Joe LaCava, his former caddie. Couples said he ventured out to Torrey Pines this week to pay off a few Super Bowl bets that went south for him. “It was ugly,” smiled the lifelong Seattle Seahawks fan who estimated he lost about 10 bets with various friends, including LaCava. Few, if any, from outside Woods’ inner circle are afforded an entire morning with the former world No. 1. Couples moves just as easily around Phil Mickelson as he does Michael Jordan and disarms all with equal parts charm and chumminess. It’s why Freddie emerged as the clubhouse favorite to captain the next U.S. Ryder Cup team before the European victory celebration had wrapped up. Farmers Insurance Open : Articles, videos and photos “You have to have the ability to let your ego down and let a system that has worked in the past, that allows us to be more prepared, like the [Paul Azinger] system in 2008,” Mickelson said on Wednesday. “Fred is absolutely one of the guys that would fit that bill.” Players en masse threw their support behind Couples to be the next American skipper both publicly and privately. It’s why he had a meeting with PGA of America chief executive Pete Bevacqua in early December to talk about a Couples captaincy. While Couples can at times go astray in conversations, rambling off topic with amusing anecdotes and observations, on this he was very direct when asked about the opportunity. “I’d love to do it. Whoever is the next captain I believe they want other players involved who would be the next few captains,” Couples said. “It would be fun.” Fun has been a central theme in all three of Couples’ victorious turns as a Presidents Cup captain and the Ryder Cup task force, which met on Monday in San Diego, has touched on everything he would bring to the table. In his signature style Couples said he is content to let the process unfold at its own pace as he awaits a second meeting with PGA president Derek Sprague in the next few weeks “I haven’t asked. I’ve played a couple of rounds with Phil and I just walked nine holes with this cat (Woods),” said Couples of the two task force members. “You know, they know what they’re doing.” And Freddie knows what he is doing when it comes to team competitions. At the root of the American Ryder Cup woes, at least as far as Couples is concerned, is a format that forces captains to juggle lineups and sit players during the team portion of the competition. “The Presidents Cup is easier. At the Ryder Cup you have to sit someone,” he said. “I think there is sometimes animosity when our guys are sat, and I’m not talking about Phil [who at the 2014 matches sat an entire day for the first time in his career]. It’s hard when everyone wants to play every single match.” There are parts of the gig that don’t exactly fit with Couples’ laidback persona, including a two-year window of intense media exposure and a hectic week during the matches filled with off-course obligations. “Well, I was Presidents Cup captain and flew to Australia for a media day. That didn’t really interest me,” he said honestly. But for Couples, being a captain is not complicated. It’s all about the players in the weeks leading up to the matches and when the first tee shot goes in the air it’s about letting them play. “If I was the captain I would have nothing to do with Minnesota [site of next year’s Ryder Cup]. What am I going to tell them? I can’t tell them to chip better or putt better or drive it better. They are doing the best they can,” he said. He also made it clear that whatever the PGA has been doing the last 10 matches, a span in which the U.S. has won just twice, needs to be fixed. No endless dinners, no time-consuming team meetings, just golf. “When we go to Augusta you don’t go to black-tie dinners, you do everything on your own. I’m not saying the Ryder Cup needs to be that way but I’m saying it should be catered to the players,” he said. “It’s all about the players.” Even the closing ceremony is an obligation Couples would rather do without, explaining as only Freddie can that no one wants to sit through another hour or so of speeches, win or lose. “I saw a fistfight at the end of the New England-Seattle game, I mean do we want to go sit and listen to a closing ceremony? When and if we win in Minnesota will they [Europe] want to go listen to that? I don’t think that should happen but I’m not running it,” he said. Most of all, Couples thinks the decision should be up to the players whether that choice is Freddie or someone else. “The next guy they choose will be someone the players want,” he said. “I know that sounds harsh, but I think if you sat with our top 50 players and had them write who they wanted as a captain two years ago, I don’t think many guys would have chosen Tom Watson. “I idolize Tom Watson, he’s helped me with my game, but I’m just talking about the players.” In short, Couples would be the ultimate players’ captain, a leader who owns the team room with a smile and a joke. Maybe even a few friendly wagers. He does, after all, need a few bets to go his way after the Super Bowl.last_img read more

Fowler edges Kuchar to win Scottish Open

first_imgGULLANE, Scotland – Rickie Fowler birdied three of his last four holes to edge fellow American Matt Kuchar and win the Scottish Open by one shot on Sunday for his second victory of the year. Kuchar was on the practice range, preparing for a playoff, when Fowler sent his approach on No. 18 to within 18 inches. He tapped in the putt for a 2-under 68 – the same score as Kuchar – and an overall 12-under 268. It is the fourth title of Fowler’s professional career, coming two months after winning The Players Championship, and the second outside the United States after the Korea Open in 2011. And his links game looks in good shape ahead of next week’s British Open at St. Andrews. Raphael Jacquelin of France birdied the last hole for 70 to tie for second place with Kuchar, and claim one of three British Open places on offer along with third-round leader Daniel Brooks, the No. 528-ranked Englishman, and Sweden’s Rikard Karlberg. Fowler took the outright lead in the tournament for the first time with his last shot of the week, from the middle of the 18th fairway. Scottish Open: Articles, photos and videos After knocking in the putt, he doffed his cap and acknowledged the crowd. But he had to wait for the final pairing of Jacquelin and Brooks to play the last before really celebrating. Jacquelin was the only one who could force a playoff but he needed an eagle 2. That almost happened, with his approach spinning back to a foot from the cup. It was a successful return to Scotland for Fowler and Kuchar, who were last here for the American team’s loss to Europe in the Ryder Cup in September 2014. ”I think we’ll be OK,” Fowler said when asked how Kuchar will feel about being edged out. ”He did it to me at The Players (in 2012). Maybe this was payback.” Fowler decided to alter his schedule and play the Scottish Open the week before British Open for the first time last year, after seeing Phil Mickelson win both events in 2013. He is halfway toward emulating his compatriot two years on. Marc Warren of Scotland shot 64 to finish in a three-way tie for fourth on 10 under, with Eddie Pepperell (69) and Joost Luiten (70). Brooks started the final round with a one-stroke lead over Jacquelin, but his driving was poor and he was forced to scramble for a 73 that still clinched him an Open berth for the first time. He was tied for seventh with Luke Donald (66) and Ross Fisher (68).last_img read more

Bechly on Denton’s Latest: “Seminal,” a “Milestone in this Ongoing Scientific Revolution”

He shows that many of the chemical elements themselves and their properties are delicately fine-tuned for life, and the same holds for crucial compounds such as water. Denton also makes a convincing case that all these instances of fine-tuning converge towards a “primal blueprint” that existed prior to the arrival of the first living cell. Denton is at the forefront of assembling this evidence as a cumulative case for teleology in nature. The Miracle of the Cell greatly advances the case in favor of intelligent causes in the natural sciences. The growing body of evidence from modern science more and more calls for a paradigm shift away from the ruling but obsolete paradigm of materialism, the blind action of natural laws, and mere matter in motion. Michael Denton’s work will prove to be a milestone in this ongoing scientific revolution.

News / Changing times: how a new delivery idea sees Lalamove eye 50 more cities in Asia

first_imgBy Gavin van Marle 07/10/2015 Asian urban delivery start-up Lalamove, which began life as EasyVan in Hong Kong, has secured another round of funding as it looks to expand into scores more cities across the region.The company recently secured $10m from a variety of investors, including MindWorks Venture, AppWorks and Crystal Stream, to help it expand into another 12 Chinese cities before the end of this year – the first step in a growth strategy that will see Lalamove operating in another 50 Asian cities by the end of next yearLocations in cities in Fujian, Anhui, Guangdong, Sichuan, Zhejiang, Shandong and Hubei provinces are set to be fully operational within the next three months, while Shanghai and Chongqing opened earlier this month.“This new round of funding will help us extend our services to new cities and provide businesses a faster and more efficient way to do delivery. We will also use the funding to help build best-in-class products to enhance our customers’ experience,” said Lalamove chief executive and founder Shing Chow. He added: “While very few start-ups thrive in both the South-east Asia and China markets, we are thrilled to show such growth in the past 18 months. This continuous success validates our hypothesis: delivery as it exists in Asia isn’t optimal and bringing technology to this aging industry reduces drivers’ idle time, increases speed and efficiency while lowering costs.”The company is one of a few “early adopters” that have taken the Uber taxi concept and applied it to the logistics industry, connecting users in need with drivers of vans, motorcycles, trucks and lorries to move items and documents in urban environments.The company has developed iOS and Android apps that allow businesses to instantly transport goods across a city using Lalamove’s network of delivery vehicles – qualified individuals with a valid licence and vehicle can sign up to be a driver. The app also serves as an affordable platform for businesses to “share” delivery vehicles.It launched in Bangkok around the beginning of this year and has built a network of 1,100 drivers, while the app has had 25,000 downloads.David Chang, a partner at MindWorks Ventures, said: “Since our previous investment, Shing and his teams have experienced a period of rapid growth and optimisation. This new follow-on funding round will further enable Lalamove to capture growing demand, strengthen its dominance in Asia and better position it to become a global player in this on-demand logistics paradigm shift.”last_img read more

Delta Air Lines Uses New App To Help Detect Turbulence

first_img Share Related Stories An audio version of this story.0:34Delta Air Lines is using technology to help make its flights run more smoothly.It’s called the Flight Weather Viewer and it gives pilots current information about areas of rough air that can cause turbulence.According to Delta officials, sensors placed on hundreds of Delta planes gather weather data and share it with other pilots.Delta says this app will help cut down on turbulence-related injuries and equipment damage.The Atlanta-based carrier started testing the app at the start of the year.By April, the app was available to all Delta pilots and dispatchers.“The Flight Weather Viewer app has become a valued tool in my bag of tricks,” said First Officer Jason Rice in a press release. “The forecasts are accurate, the reports objective and indicative of actual conditions and app functionality makes all of that information extremely easy to access.”Delta officials say the future upgrades will give pilots warnings about hail, lightening and volcanic ash.Like us on Facebook. 0:34 | Play story Add to My ListIn My List Legal Advocate Discusses Medical Abuse At Shut Down Georgia ICE Facility For Whom The Bell Rings ‘It’s Fractured’: Georgia Lt.
