Let’s continue this way… We want such leaders that are action people, like the First Lady, who has put everything in place,” she said.A participant, Barbalee John, is thankful for the knowledge that she will get from the training.“I think it is helpful… I can teach the children how to use a computer… [and help] with typing and so, to do records…these days people want computerised work and I think in that way I can help,” she highlighted.Senior Technical Officer of the Board of Industrial Training, Rondell Jordon; Regional Vice Chairperson, Olinda Kyrenhoff-Griffith; Toshao of Kamarang, Clifford Melville and Vice Toshao, McNeil Reid also attended the ceremony.
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp This is a crime and in several of the cases, because the pets were tied in their owners’ yards, it may also be a crime of trespassing. Some believe it is a plot to wipe out barking dogs so that home burglaries are easier; others believe it is frustrated neighbours who say there are too many loose dogs in the neighborhood while yet others believe it is just a wicked person killing off canine members of people’s families. Needless to say the loss of these pets have been heart breaking, especially to children; in one case as many as three dogs from one family were killed and believed poisoned . Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, October 21, 2016 – There is a pet killer on the loose in Millennium Heights and residents are up in arms about the trend of dogs seemingly being poisoned; they are calling for an investigation and for the culprit or culprits to stop it. At least seven families have been devastated by the news now that their family dog was poisoned by someone either living or coasting in the area… just moments ago a resident found his dog dead in the back yard. Nine dogs have been killed and in nearly all cases the Police have been called in, but there has been no investigative team sent in to determine what is going on.

Dan Cohen AUTHOR Urban Land Institute has called the redevelopment of the former Philadelphia Navy Yard one of the “most successful” projects in U.S. history.The Navy Yard has attracted more than 150 companies and 12,000 employees since the project began more than 15 years ago, reported CBS Philly. To date, the 1,200-acre waterfront campus has focused on the office, industrial/manufacturing, and research and development sectors. But now PIDC, Philadelphia’s public-private economic development corporation and the project’s master developer, is planning to take the redevelopment in a new direction.“I think you should look forward to hopefully a residential component being layered into the development, so we can create a really urban place at the Navy Yard,” said PIDC President John Grady.“A place where people can live and work and have recreation and amenities. I think you will look for more connections with our mass transit system and better connecting the Navy Yard to the rest of the city and the region,” Grady said.Urban Land Institute cited the Navy Yard’s college campus-like feel, the buildings’ architecture, green design and recreational spaces, according to the story.
