first_img Sharing is caring! 30 Views   no discussions Share Tweet Food & DiningLifestyleLocalNews Regional rapid exchange system for dangerous goods being developed by: – September 20, 2011center_img Share Share Photo credit; signsmart.com.auBRADES, Montserrat (GIU) — Montserrat is to be a part of a new alert system to notify other Caribbean nations of dangerous goods.Last Wednesday, representatives from government, private sector and non-profit groups met with Ioannis Sidiropolous, an IT Consultant working with the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to develop the Regional Rapid Exchange System.The system will cover non-food products and Sidiropoulos explained that CARICOM wants to improve the level of consumer protection with regard to the safety of products. The project, which began in May and ends November 15, is to develop the comprehensive framework for the rapid exchange system for dangerous products, a computerised system to track notifications, and a training programme for all participating nations.The consultant said the goal is to create a system that all users are able to work with immediately and by which information can be exchanged quickly between authorities. It covers all non-food products excluding industrial products, consumer services, drugs and tobacco. In November, one person from each member state will participate in a train-the-trainers programme to be able to pass on knowledge of the system to colleagues.The Caribbean model, being called CARREX – CARICOM Rapid Exchange system — is based on the European Rapid Exchange system (RAPEX) which has been in use for more than 30 years.The CARREX Secretariat will function as the central node with 15 national contact points, and the OECS Secretariat as an associated contact point. The 15 national networks will be made up of members from public administration bodies and institutions, economic operators and individual consumers and consumer organisations.According to Sidiropoulos, a product is classified as dangerous when you find out that although it has been manufactured and achieved certification it is proven to cause health or safety problems for consumers.by Nerissa GoldenCaribbean News Nowlast_img read more

Monaco boss Kovac tips Eagles star to shine in Ligue 1

first_img Monaco was held to a disappointing 2-2 draw at the Stade Louis II by  Stade Reims on Sunday, with Onyekuru hauled off after just 45 minutes. After replacing him with Sofian Diop, Kovac said, Onyekuru remains part of his plans going forward and he’s happy to have him in the squad. “Henry Onyekuru is an important player in the squad, having only been with us for two weeks. As you have seen, Sofiane Diop made a good appearance off the bench. I’m happy with both players,” Kovac told a news conference after the game. Monaco boss Niko Kovac believes Super Eagles striker Henry Onyekuru will play an important role for the French Ligue 1 campaigners this season. Onyekuru joined the club last season from Everton, but he spent the second half of the campaign on loan at Turkish outfit Galatasaray. Kovac however recalled the player and made it clear, he’s banking on him for the new French Ligue one season, which kicked off last weekend.

Joshua hits back at Wilder

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua, Okolie plot world title double Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Anthony Joshua has defended his measured and tactful display against Andy Ruiz Jr, which saw him become a two-time heavyweight world champion.Joshua outfoxed and outboxed Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia last weekend to claim a unanimous points win and revenge for his shock defeat six months ago.As a spectacle, it was not one for the casual boxing fan, and although Joshua mostly received praise for executing his game plan from those inside the sport, there were some who critcised the BritWBC champion Deontay Wilder was unimpressed by Joshua’s performance and blasted his “jab-and-grab” technique in the hours after his victory.Wilder told The Athletic: “Joshua did what he had to do to get the win. He ran around the ring and was on his bike all day.“You want to dominate guys, man. I’m not coming in, after losing to this guy, to just dance and grab and jab and hold. I’m going to show the world and convince them I am the very best and that no one is close to me.”AJ hit back at his rival’s comments, insisting that he deserves credit for showing the discipline to box smart and prise back the heavyweight world titles.“That’s Wilder’s opinion,” Joshua said. “A lot of people don’t have a good bone in their body to say a positive thing anyway. I outboxed the heavyweight champion of the world for 12 rounds. I don’t think I lost a round. Maybe one“I come in there with a great game plan, I’m successful. Isn’t that good enough?“You can’t box to keep everyone happy; you have to box for the win. And I feel like when I’m at home celebrating, he’s there talking about negativity. Negative energy breeds failure so I’m just going to keep a positive mindset and build on that victory.”Tags: Andy Ruiz JrAnthony JoshuaDeontay Wilderlast_img read more

Ronaldinho faces six months jail term

first_imgRelatedPosts Suarez agrees Atletico terms Messi becomes football’s second billionaire + Top 10 Messi staying back at Barca is ‘fantastic’ — Koeman Ronaldinho must remain in jail in Paraguay after a judge on Tuesday refused a request for him to be released into house arrest, following his arrest for possession of a fake Paraguayan passport. The former Barcelona, AC Milan and Brazil forward and his brother and business manager Roberto Assis were arrested last Friday after they were caught carrying the false Paraguayan documents. Brazilians do not need a passport to enter Paraguay so it was unclear why Ronaldinho had the fake documents in his possession. The brothers will remain in a maximum security prison on the outskirts of Asuncion for as long as six months, or until the investigation is complete, judge Gustavo Amarilla said. “Ronaldinho’s freedom could lead to an obstruction (of justice) or an escape,” Amarilla told reporters. “His presence in the country is necessary.” The brothers offered a $770,000 property as a guarantee but prosecutor Marcelo Pecchi argued they were a flight risk. “The investigation is only beginning, we are looking into other conducts that may be related,” Pecchi told reporters. “If these people leave right now they will not be able to be brought to face trial because Brazil does not extradite its own citizens.” Although he last played professionally in 2015, Ronaldinho is still hugely popular with global football fans and advertisers and was invited to Paraguay by a local casino owner.Tags: AC MilanBarcelonaGustavo AmarillaMercelo PecchiRoberto AssisRonaldinholast_img read more

Nigerian boxer Adeleye targets Daniel Dubois fight

first_imgRelatedPosts Fury hires Nigerian boxer as sparring partner Tyson Fury plays down comeback Heavyweight hopeful David Adeleye is laser focused on his return to boxing on July 10, but admitted that he can’t wait to get back in the ring with Daniel Dubois when the time is right.The 23-year-old Notting Hill banger sparred with Dubois when they were teenagers at the famous Dale Youth Club and, prior to the coronavirus pandemic, had been brought in to get “Dynamite” ready for his upcoming bout with Joe Joyce. Adeleye, however, admitted that he held a little back in their latest encounter in case the two ever meet professionally.“No, I didn’t give it my all” he said,“I went down there and it was more like learning – like ‘oh, this is what he’s doing’.“That’s not to say the hulking brute didn’t try and win the battle anyway, confessing that he and Dubois were both keen to “make a statement.”“We tried to make a statement. He’s trying to show that he’s better than me, I’m trying to show that I’m better than him. So, we kinda just go at it. “The first minute of the first round Martin Bowers and my coach were like ‘listen, just get to boxing’ as we were both trying to show our muscles. We both feel like we’ve got points to prove.”No stranger to excellent sparring partners, having helped prepare Tyson Fury ahead of his second bout with Deontay Wilder, Adeleye hopes that as the coronavirus situation eases he’ll get a chance to get back in there with Dubois.“It was a good spar. I went down to the Peacock gym and got some good rounds in. I remember Martin Bowers (Daniel’s Head Coach) saying afterwards ‘that first spar was kind of like you guys just going at it’.“It was good and there is probably going to be many more to come. He’s going to need the work, I’m going to need the work.”Confident Adeleye made his professional debut on December 21, scoring a convincing knockout victory in Round 1 over the overwhelmed Lithuanian Dmitrij Kalinovskij. Coincidentally, that fight was on the undercard of Daniel Dubois’ scrap against Japanese superstar Kyotaro Fujimoto, but Adeleye doesn’t think it’ll be long before he’s headlining shows of his own.“Honestly, I put myself at the very top of the division, especially in this country.”—Tags: Daniel DuboisDavid AdeleyeDynamiteJoe Joycelast_img read more
