Cooperative movement wants more people to come together for job creating in Dominica

first_img Share Share LocalNews Cooperative movement wants more people to come together for job creating in Dominica by: – January 20, 2012 Tweet 27 Views   no discussionscenter_img Sharing is caring! Share Photo credit: molsmed.gov.ttThe cooperative movement here is hoping that more people will come together to pool their resources in creating jobs on the island.This as the island observes a number of activities to celebrate the International Year of the Cooperatives (IYC) 2012.The cooperatives movement on Thursday launched a calendar of events to mark IYC in Dominica.Commissioner of Cooperatives Mariette Canoville said the Co-operative Movement was introduced into India by the Government as the only method by which farmers could overcome their burden of debt and keep them away from the clutches of the money-lenders.“There are 7,261 cooperatives active in 13 member states in the Brazillian economy. In 2009, they exported a total of 3, 6 billion dollars and had turnover of 44, 25 million dollars. I mention this to show that countries like India and Brazil now famous for rapid development are enamored with their cooperative movement and why not Dominica? This is why we hope to generate the necessary interest that will advance the cause of cooperative societies and urged more people to come together as one pooling resources together to create jobs and progress in our country,” he said.The International Year of Co-operatives was declared on December 21st, 2011 by the United Nations assembly under the theme “Cooperative enterprises build a better world.The objective is to highlight the contribution of cooperatives to socio-economic development.In adopting resolution 64/136 on December 18, the Assembly noted that cooperatives impact poverty reduction, employment, generation and social integration.Meanwhile Canoville said there are also plans to get more young people involved in the movement.“We have a Junior Cooperatives Conference to be held at the Public Training Center tomorrow. The hope is to get more young people involved in cooperatives. The panel discussion will talk about sustainable development for the youth. We have one registered junior cooperative and many study groups. About 80% of the schools have saving union-nets but they are not registered as cooperatives,” she said.The IYC has also establishment a national committee and a secretariat.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Late check for Montero

first_img The Tigers have impressed however against top sides, drawing 1-1 away at Manchester City and losing 3-2 to Chelsea in a match they could easily have won. Meyler said: “We are not going down. We just have to get into the mentality that it is not good enough to accept the 3-2 defeat to Chelsea, even if they are likely Premier League champions. “We had some great chances and we need to win these games when you get into those positions.” He added: “We’re down to the last eight games now and this is where we have to earn our money. “This is the period when everything will be decided so we’ve got eight games to make sure we finish as well as we can and that is what we aim to do. “We finished 17th last season and at the moment, we’re 15th this season so we’re a little bit ahead. “What we want to do here is maintain Premier League status for a number of years to come and we’ll do what we have to do to achieve that aim and build this club. “We’ve got eight games to come, against some decent teams, but I’m sure we can get the wins we need if we keep performing like we did in games against the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool and for 70 minutes against Chelsea. “It will be tough against Swansea but we’re going there with the mentality that we can get some points.” Hull will be hugely boosted by the return of Senegal midfielder Mohamed Diame after a long injury absence, and James Chester is also back in the squad. Gaston Ramirez is fit to play despite concerns about an injury picked up on international duty. Swans manager Garry Monk insists he wants to add quality players and not sell them this summer ahead of a season which he has described as “probably one of the biggest in the club’s history”. Monk had to contend with transfer speculation surrounding two of his players during the international break as Poland goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski was linked to Roma while Wales defender Neil Taylor is reportedly interesting West Brom. But Monk says his only focus is on squad strengthening this summer, with the new £5.1billion three-year Premier League TV rights deal from the 2016-17 season upping the ante as far as the next campaign is concerned. “I want to build on what we have, add quality and not take it away,” Monk said ahead of Hull’s visit. “I want to finish the season as strong as possible and put that way of working into them because it’s probably one of the biggest in the club’s history if you look at the rewards for next season. “The new TV rights and the money the club can gain is massive, that’s why next season is so important and we don’t lose any quality in the summer.” Hull midfielder David Meyler says he is totally convinced the Tigers will hang on to their Premier League status. Steve Bruce’s side are in 15th place, three points off the relegation zone, but have a tough run-in with five of their last eight matches against clubs in the top seven of the Premier League. Swansea will make a late check on Ecuador winger Jefferson Montero before Hull’s Barclays Premier League visit to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday. Montero suffered a muscle strain against Mexico during the international break and the injury is not as serious as first feared, but on-loan Spurs midfielder Tom Carroll is definitely out after damaging ankle ligaments on England Under-21 duty and might not play again this season. Midfielder Leon Britton and defender Kyle Bartley are both back in training after being absent in recent weeks and have been added to the Swansea squad. Press Associationlast_img read more

(AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)ExpandCHICAGO — It is so late in the season, and the Angels so are desperate, that even on a night they won, they lost.The Angels slapped a six-run second inning on the Chicago White Sox and cruised to a 9-3 victory on Tuesday night, but just before they could finish it off, the out-of-town scoreboard delivered bad news.The Minnesota Twins also won, coming from behind, to push the Angels to the final step before elimination from the race for the final American League wild-card spot.Related Articles Beyond the pale Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The Angels are five behind the Twins, with five to play. The Angels need to win them all, while the Twins lose them all. Then the Angels would need to beat the Twins in a one-game playoff in Minnesota on Monday. WANTED: Drum teacher killed It also came on the first pitch, snapping a string of 28 consecutive first-pitch swings without a hit. His last hit on a first pitch was on Aug. 7.The Angels padded the lead in the seventh. Two runs came home on a single by Pujols, whose 14th 100-RBI season tied Alex Rodriguez for the all-time record.“That’s a tremendous milestone,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “A lot of times people don’t see how hard Albert works to keep himself in the lineup, to keep going. He’s just a professional hitter. Obviously, it’s a great milestone for him.”That was more than enough support for Bridwell, who gave up three runs in 6⅔ innings. He navigated the White Sox lineup with just one strikeout, an oddity in the sport’s current state. By pitching to contact, he was able to get those 20 outs with just 79 pitches.While some analysts suggest that pitchers who don’t rack up high strikeout numbers will have trouble repeating their success, Scioscia said this was another example that Bridwell is the exception.“Parker has enough stuff that he’s not a fluke,” Scioscia said. “He’s not one-dimensional. He’s not doing (just) one thing and the league hasn’t caught up to him. He’s got a lot of things he does with the baseball. When he’s on like tonight, you can see how he can miss bats and get mis-hits. This is when he’s at his best. I definitely think it’s repeatable.” “We’re in it,” Parker Bridwell said. “We’re not out yet. We’ve still got a chance. We gotta be optimistic. I’m excited to see where it goes. Things have to fall in place for us, but you never know.”A season’s worth of inconsistency, and a month worth of mediocrity, pushed them to the brink, but they displayed none of that in fighting to keep breathing for at least one more night.With three homers, including Mike Trout’s three-run shot, and Albert Pujols’ 100th RBI, the Angels busted out for their most runs since Sept. 13.After Jose Abreu’s first of two homers put the White Sox up 1-0 in the first, it was all Angels.In the second, Brandon Phillips, Luis Valbuena and Trout all homered. Trout’s homer was the 199th of his career.last_img read more
