Tag: 苏州桑拿

first_imgMIAMI — It is not easy to have patience in times of trouble, but in Thursday’s series finale against the Marlins, the Giants proved why it’s so valuable.The Giants believed Tyler Beede was capable of throwing quality innings in the big leagues. They believed a slumping Brandon Crawford was due for a big hit.

first_img The Minister, who is scheduled to open the debate on the Bill during today’s sitting of the House of Representatives, said the concerns raised in the media were unexpected as “I did not table the Bill without having the necessary consultations”. Story Highlights Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Hon. Desmond McKenzie, says he will be inviting architects and engineers to a meeting to discuss issues they have raised about the new Building Bill.He made the disclosure while addressing a national building policy workshop at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston on Tuesday (June 6).The Minister, who is scheduled to open the debate on the Bill during today’s sitting of the House of Representatives, said the concerns raised in the media were unexpected as “I did not table the Bill without having the necessary consultations”.He indicated that within his first three months as Local Government Minister, he held extensive discussions with various players in the building industry.“Before we sent this Bill to have the final work done on it, we circulated it, we invited (stakeholders) in the business (to make recommendations), and early this year, I met with the team and we signed off on what was tabled in Parliament,” he noted.The Minister said significant changes were made to the Bill based on the suggestions put forward, but noted that it was not possible to accommodate all views. He noted that the accompanying Regulations will address some of the concerns outlined.Minister McKenzie said the country cannot afford to postpone the debate “on the long-awaited and important bit of legislation that needs to guide the country’s building development”.The Building Bill seeks to establish a modern legislative framework that will serve to reduce the vulnerability of Jamaica’s built environment and ensure public safety and welfare; minimise damage caused by natural and man-made hazards; prevent squatter settlements; and promote sustainable development.The legislation will also streamline the permit application system to eliminate unnecessary referrals and expedite responses; facilitate the introduction of special express services; and ensure the rights of persons with disabilities regarding accessibility, safety and user-friendliness.It also provides for the establishment of the National Building Code, and identifies the Bureau of Standards Jamaica as the agency that will set the acceptable local and international standards for construction.In addition, the legislation establishes that the municipal corporations are to be the local building authorities and will be responsible for inspecting, certifying and taking the actions necessary to approve new structures, change existing buildings, or destroy dangerous structures.center_img Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Hon.

Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license Imports at the major retail container ports in US are expected to drop to their lowest level in almost a year this month.According to a report by the National Retail Federation and Hackett Associates, the decline would be noted as the retail industry entered its annual lull between seasons, while plans for a tariff increase were put on hold.“Now that the holiday season is over and summer has yet to crank up, this is the quiet time of year for retail supply chains,” according to Jonathan Gold, NRF Vice President for Supply Chain and Customs Policy.“Retailers are also taking a break from the rush to bring merchandise in ahead of tariff hikes now that the increase that was scheduled for March has been delayed,” Gold said, adding that imports will start to build up again soon as retailers prepare for the summer.U.S. ports handled 1.89 million TEUs in January, the latest month for which after-the-fact numbers are available. That was down 3.7 percent from December following the end of the holiday season but up 7.4 percent year-over-year.February was estimated at 1.79 million TEU, up 6.2 percent from February 2018. March is forecast at 1.59 million TEU, up 3.2 percent year-over-year but the lowest level since 1.63 million TEU in April 2018.Imports during 2018 set a new record of 21.8 million TEU, an increase of 6.2 percent over 2017’s previous record of 20.5 million TEU. The first half of 2019 is expected to total 10.8 million TEU, up 4.8 percent over the first half of 2018.“The trade war with China is turning out not to have the results President Trump expected,” Ben Hackett, Hackett Associates Founder, said.“Imports from China did not decline – in fact, they soared to record levels.”last_img read more
