Speaking at the opening of the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO’s) Air Transport Conference at the Guyana Conference Centre at Liliendaal on 21 November 2018, Caricom Secretary-General, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, said the Caribbean Community (Caricom) is seeking to re-introduce the single security check for direct transit passengers on multi-stop intra-community flights. He said this will no doubt be “a welcome initiative for regional travellers.”High-level officials at the Opening Ceremony of the ICAO Air Transport Conference in GuyanaCaricom had successfully implemented a single security check initiative during the Region’s hosting of the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2007. That arrangement has since been put on pause, and intra-regional travellers making transit stops are required to go through security checks until they reach their final destination.Secretary-General LaRocque told the meeting that under the auspices of the Caribbean Aviation Safety and Security Oversight System (CASSOS), work will soon commence on the development of a regional policy through which the single security check would enhance travellers’ experience in the Region and minimise inconvenience.Formally launched in 2009, CASSOS has been facilitating growth and development of the regional aviation sector through training; resource sharing; and harmonisation of policies and procedures, among other areas.CASSOS member states seek to uphold the highest standards of safety and security in aviation, as determined by the rules and regulations of the ICAO, the Secretary-General told the meeting.He said the actions Caricom has been taking were not limited to its domestic situation, but were also in pursuit of enhancing global transportation links, with consequent benefit flowing to the regional tourism product.In this regard, he said, a consultancy has been launched to formulate a regional airlift policy and strategy; with technical reviews, analytical work, and stakeholder consultations in member states already undertaken.The objective of the regional airlift policy and strategy, Ambassador LaRocque said, is to harmonise aviation policies in the Community, and support the expansion of the tourism sector as a major contributor to the sustainable growth of member states.Noting that those objectives have key linkages with the objectives of the Air Transport Conference, he said the presence of the Honourable Joseph Kofi Adda, Minister of Aviation of Ghana; and Her Excellency Dr. Amani Abou-Zeid, Commissioner for Infrastructure and Energy of the African Union Commission, presents an opportunity to explore possibilities for air links and consequent increase in travel among the African diaspora.The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) conference has advanced the outcome of a special event on promoting air links between African states and the diaspora which was held in Accra, Ghana in 2017.Emphasising the conference’s vast potential for improving tourism and trade linkages between the African continent and Caricom member states, the Secretary-General encouraged the meeting to advance those prospects.Dr Amani Abou-Zeid, in her remarks at the opening of the Conference, invited Ambassador LaRocque to discuss connecting the Caribbean and the African continent. Underscoring the immense potential of this collaboration, she said Africa’s population is expected to double to 2.5 billion people by 2020, and the African diaspora is estimated at more than 150 million, with 23 million in the Caribbean alone.Noting the need for follow-up on this discussion, which began in 2014, she said, “Aviation provides a critical infrastructure link for the promotion of tourism between the Caribbean and the continent, and for linking the people of the Caribbean to the motherland.”

layer|formatter=asset_bonus|title=LoVecchio_1_Pub.mp3]=75|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=LoVecchio-2_1_Pub.mp3]A Canadian Pacific freight train has derailed in B.C.’s Fraser Canyon, knocking 16 cars off the track. The derailment is close to the area where crews are battling a wildfire on Jackass Mountain… CPR spokesman Mike LoVecchio adds the two matters are not connected and the fire is not causing any problems for cleanup crews. However, he’s confirmed one of the derailed cars was sent tumbling into the Thompson River, near Lytton, 250 kilometres northeast of Vancouver. He adds the car in the river is carrying glycol, a bio-degradable chemical, found in anti-freeze and also used in the manufacture of explosives. However, the double-walled tanker does not appear to be leaking. He says another derailed car is lying on the river bank but the other 14 are upright, albeit off the tracks. A rock slide is blamed for the incident, which occurred at about 7 o’clock last night.- Advertisement –

Robyn Estrada, who leads Desert Christian with 32 goals, was one of three Knights to record a hat trick against Milken, along with Lexie Gliwa and Hannah Parcel. “We have a lot of good talent with our (outside halfbacks) and in the middle,” Estrada said. “We’ve been playing really well lately and our goal is to make it all the way to the finals.” Desert Christian, which won a division title in 2003 before losing the past three seasons in the quarterfinals, plays Marshall of Pasadena (12-4) – a 5-1 winner over Sierra Vista of Baldwin Park – in Tuesday’s second round. “It’s been four years (since the school has won a title),” Estrada said. “Nobody on this team was part of that, so we want a ring. We want one of those sparkly things on our finger.” Back to the drawing board: For the third consecutive season, Highland’s girls’ soccer team won the Golden League title. And for the third year in a row, the Bulldogs (12-5-7) weren’t able to parlay their regular-season success into a lengthy playoff run. Highland suffered a 4-2 first-round setback Friday in the Div. II playoffs to Westlake, bringing an end to its 15-game home unbeaten streak. The Bulldogs’ last home defeat was a 4-2 second-loss in the 2005 playoffs to another Marmonte League power, Thousand Oaks. “It hurts because I thought this team, and I still think this team, was deeper than the past two years,” said Highland coach Juan Paolo, whose team rallied from a 1-4-6 start to go unbeaten in its last 12 regular-season games. “But it shows how tough their league is. They have power from first place all the way to last. Anybody can beat anybody because it’s a well-balanced league. “It’s hard for us because there are only a few games in our league when we’re really tested. They have this type of competition every night.” Highland, which extended its league unbeaten streak to 34 in a row during the regular season, surrendered a goal in the first minute against Westlake and fell behind 3-0 at halftime. “We never had a chance to get started,” said Paolo, who received two second-half goals from senior sweeper Alex Fulladosa. Battling until the end: Patty Garcia didn’t close out her four-year career at Lancaster (14-9-2) with a victory, but did manage to score a goal in her final game, a 2-1 loss in the Div. II playoffs at Royal of Simi Valley. “I’m not disappointed. We played hard and we tried, so we ended OK,” Garcia said. “They’re a good team. They played aggressive.” Lancaster’s second-half effort was one of the more impressive put forth by a Golden League team in the postseason. The league went 0-4 in the Div. II playoffs. email@example.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Desert Christian’s girls’ soccer team began the week as one of seven local playoff qualifiers. The Knights enter the second week of the postseason as the Antelope Valley’s lone hope to win a Southern Section girls’ soccer championship. After Paraclete, Knight and Quartz Hill were eliminated in Wednesday’s wild-card round, Highland, Lancaster and Rosamond suffered first-round exits Friday, shifting the spotlight solely on Desert Christian. The Knights (20-1-2), the top seed in Div. VI, continued their dominance with a 12-0 victory over Milken Community of Los Angeles in their playoff opener Friday at Lancaster National Soccer Center.

Members of Men’s Sheds can come from all walks of life – the bond that unites them is that they are men with time on their hands and they would like something meaningful to do with that time. John Evoy from Men’s shed Ireland says there are around twelve men’s shed up and running in Ireland since 2005 and more are starting up bringing great opportunities for men to get involved.The meeting will be facilitated by Cathal Monaghan who is a member of the Men’s Development Network Ireland and Men’s Sheds Ireland.
