US: Daylight Saving Time Ends Sunday At 2a

From All Access Music Group November 4, 2016 at 4:41 AM (PT)

We [US] all gain an hour of sleep this weekend — and the overnight guy (if he’s not named OTTO MATION) gets an extra hour of pay — as DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ends at 2a on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 6th.

The History Of Daylight Saving

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN is credited with the concept of DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME. The basic idea is to make the best use of daylight hours by shifting the clock forward in the SPRING and backward in the FALL, writes NASA’s website. DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME has been in use throughout much of the U.S., CANADA and EUROPE since WORLD WAR I. In 1966, President LYNDON JOHNSON signed an act into law whereby DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME begins on the last SUNDAY of APRIL and ends on the last SUNDAY of OCTOBER each year. However, any State can opt out of DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME by passing a State law.

HAWAII does not observe DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME and neither does ARIZONA (although the NAVAJO NATION, in northeastern ARIZONA, does). For many years, most of INDIANA did not observe DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME with the exception of 10 counties. Beginning in 2006, all of INDIANA now observes DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME.

In 2005, President BUSH signed into law a new energy policy bill that would extend DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME by four weeks beginning in 2007, so DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME now begins at 2a on the second SUNDAY of MARCH and DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ends at 2a on the first SUNDAY of NOVEMBER.

Cayman Islands: Police Operations Undertaken To Prevent Gang-Related Activity; Five Arrests Made

screen-shot-2016-11-02-at-3-13-03-pmFrom Jacqueline Carpenter RCIPS

Yesterday, Wednesday, 2 November 2016, police implemented targeted operations staffed by a multi-discipline task force, including its firearm tactical response team, which resulted in several warranted searches. These efforts were undertaken to tackle the recent rise in gang-related activities, in particular in certain communities within the district of West Bay, and across other districts.

These operations have, so far, led to the arrest of five persons for various offences.

During the course of one police operation just before 11:30PM in Prospect, George Town, armed officers were confronted by a belligerent man, who appeared to be in possession of a handgun. During the confrontation the suspect released a large ferocious bulldog at the officers. In order to ensure their safety and arrest the suspect, the threat was neutralised by one of the armed officers who discharged a single shot that fatally wounded the animal. The suspect who resisted arrest was taken into police custody without further incident after an imitation firearm was removed from his possession.

Three further arrests were made during the operation as follows:

A juvenile male, age 17 of George Town, on suspicion of possession of an imitation firearm with intent, resisting arrest, and possession of ganja (now in police custody);

A woman, age 22 of George Town, on suspicion of assaulting police with respect to this incident, and on suspicion of assault and possession of an unlicensed firearm in connection with an incident on 30 October (details below). She is now on Court bail;

A man, age 24 of George Town, on suspicion of possession of ganja and consumption.

Earlier in the day a man, age 25 of George Town, was arrested on suspicion of Assault ABH and breach of Court bail. The assault relates to an incident that occurred on Sunday, 30 October near Public Beach during which a male was punched and beaten and threatened with a firearm. (The 22-year-old woman is also suspected of involvement in this incident.) This is incident is also considered to be gang-related. This man is now on Court bail;

Additionally, around 6PM last night, a man, age 24, was arrested by a West Bay on suspicion of the Assault ABH, which occurred on 1 November in the vicinity of 38 Birch Tree Hill Road during which a man was severely beaten. The man is currently in police custody.

“DCP Kurt Walton, who has strategic lead for this crime initiative, and I are very proud of the can-do attitude of our officers and the extraordinary courage, judgment and professionalism with which they have conducted themselves during these ongoing operation,” said Anthony Ennis, Acting Commissioner of Police. “The discharge of a firearm in any circumstances requires professionalism and judgement under stressful conditions. The way officers handled this incident is a demonstration of both.

“I continue to urge the public that if they see anything unusual to report it to the police. They can do so in confidence by contacting any member of the RCIPS that they are confident in speaking with, or Crimestoppers. We cannot and should not let a band of criminals compromise the safety and tranquillity of our islands.”

 

Cancellation: Cayman Islands Older Persons Month Tea Party at the Pines

The Department of Children and Family Services regrets to announce the cancellation of the Older Persons Month Tea Party that was rescheduled to take place in the Pines Garden this Saturday, 5 November 2016.

The event, originally slated to take place on Saturday, 29 October 2016 was postponed due to the threat of inclement weather. One of many of Older Persons Month events, the tea party has had to be cancelled due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts of the organising committee.

 

Distinguished Caymanian Vernon Jackson laid to rest

Mr. Vernon Jackson OBE JP was laid to rest last Saturday, 29 October, 2016 at West Bay United Church.

Mr. Jackson, was one of the Cayman Islands most distinguished men who served his country and community well for many years right up until his death;

Mr. Jackson served first as a teacher in 1949, and spent 15 years in the teaching profession. He was later appointed headmaster. He continued his role in education when he was appointed Director of Education in 1964.

In 1969 he oversaw the change in currency from the British Pounds, Shillings and Pence to the Jamaican Dollar.

As a civil servant, in addition to Education, he served in Communications, Infrastructure, Human Resources, and Social Services,

He also held the positions of Administration Secretary (now Chief Officer) for Education and Social Services, Principal Secretary of Personnel, (now Portfolio of the Civil Service-PoCs), Principal Secretary of Communication and Works and Supervisor of Elections.

As a tribute to him the Cayman Islands government renamed a building in Bodden Town “The Vernon L. Jackson Library and Learning Centre”.

After his retirement he became a Marriage Officer.

 

Little girl celebrates birthday by giving to Hurricane Matthew fund

1478179081hurricane-matthewNovember 2nd was little Mandi Parchment’s fourth birthday. To celebrate, she came to the Seventh-day headquarters on Walkers Road clutching a wad of money for the church’s Hurricane Matthew Relief Fund for Haiti, Cuba, and the Bahamas.

The daughter of Abigail and Sean Parchment, the budding philanthropist had heard about the fund on the radio and from her parents and wanted to help. As her birthday approached, her mother said, “we asked if she would like to donate the money” earmarked for her party. “It was a hard decision for Mandi, but she realised that she could do so much more to help if she donated all of her birthday money.”

Receiving the money was Pastor Shion O’Connor, President of the Conference, who thanked Mandi and her parents for the sacrificial gift.

The Hurricane Matthew Relief Fund received a major injection this past weekend when all offering collected in all Adventist churches (Saturday, 29 October) were diverted to the fund. Church members who have not yet given still have a chance to do so, as the drive continues over the course of November.

Persons interested in donating may also visit the Conference Office on 209 Walkers Road. In addition, funds may be deposited at the ADRA account at the Royal Bank of Canada or at any Adventist Church on any Saturday.

The Hurricane Matthew Fund will be shared among the three affected countries, Haiti, Cuba and the Bahamas. The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) offices in each territory will administer the funds.

The Cayman Conference is also shipping clothing and personal care and other items for babies, children and adults to Haiti, the most impact of the three target countries.
Cayman Islands events for World Diabetes Day 2016

 To tie in with World Diabetes Day 2016, the Health Services Authority is holding two events at the Cayman Islands Hospital in George Town.

Cayman Islands Liquor Licensing Board Chairman Resigns

Campbell Law has stepped down as the chairman of the Liquor Licensing Board, effective as of Monday, 10 October.

Mr Law was appointed board chairman in December 2015 and took office on 1 January on a four-year term. In his notice to the board, he said he resigned in order to focus on a new business venture, and that he did not want a subsequent perception of a conflict of interest to hamper the board’s work.

‘We respect Campbell’s decision and we are thankful for his contributions during his tenure,’ said Department of Commerce and Investment (DCI) Director Ryan Rajkumarsingh.

‘Campbell’s guidance was especially beneficial during the transitional period following the commencement of the Liquor Licensing Law amendments – which addressed, among other things, the removal of the previous moratorium in order for the board to grant new liquor licences.’

Vice Chairman Woody DaCosta will serve as the interim board leader until Cabinet announces a new permanent chairman.

‘This change will not affect the board’s daily operations. Liquor licensing applications will continue to be processed, and the board will carry on its work of supporting the responsible sale of alcohol in the community,’ Mr Rajkumarsingh said.
