TVJ Midday News: Pearnel Charles Jr to Represent JLP in Clarendon By-Elections – February 6  2020

good afternoon with a midday news I’m
Milton Walker a special welcome if you’re watching on one spot
/ no Charles Jr who is to be the Jamaica Labour Party GOP candidate in Clarendon
southeast in the next general election says despite being new to the
constituency is confident he can win the seat the seat became vacant and Tuesday
following the resignation of Rodion Spencer the government has announced a
March 2 by-election mr. Charles says being new to the constituency presents
many opportunities also means new vision and a new mr. Chow’s who was speaking today on the
morning agenda on poll 106 explained that he was approached by mr. Spencer
about three years ago to begin preparing him to take over the constituency the
dengue prevention fight in Clarendon got another boost yesterday this hi-tech
fogging machine seen there was handed over to the Southeast Regional Health
Authority Sarah better control unit by Custis of the parish William Shagari the
vector workers do not have to be in the back of the pickup manually using the
fogging machine this reduces a health risk due to their exposure to emulation
of the fumes the machine also generates more fumes than the regular machines and
will be used to cover the more at-risk communities in the parish this much in
the second mother of all machine data I’ve given over to the ministry MOU
where I will take care of it and they will use it whenever they need it
because it has to be serviced a la popa a service whenever it is necessary not
like the regular machines it’s a little bit high-tech and has to be very careful
when you use it mr. ps-aguié at the same time reminded
residents of their responsibilities in the dengue fight as preventative
measures are always more effective than fucking people must take control of
their own destiny – you know they can’t be destroyed on the boxes on the wall
cans and and it all tiles are not taking care of them by cleaning them up and
putting oil in them to prevent the breathing of mosquitoes so the people
must blame them said they can’t depend on this this is only to kill what is in
the ear it doesn’t kill what is in the lava that’s in the water so they need to
make sure that it is their protection it is for them to make sure they protect
themselves and not depend on the government or the miserable to do
everything a coldest after I’m sorry a call this
afternoon for unions and their leaders to re-examine their operations to bring
them more in line with the demands of the 21st century labor market Member of
Parliament for Northwest st. James dr. Horace Chang while speaking in Gordon
house early this week said changes in such areas as technology mean the
country’s labor union movement has to become more modern the character
trillion is about change the truth is that the relationship of work on
employer capital and labour still exists and in fact with the emerging change in
what is now called a fourth revolution with the internet taking over there’s a
whole changing character out of the worker and there is even a greater
demand for those who are sensitive to the demands and needs of our workforce
out there because it requires a different kind of Tribune representation
but it’s still necessary that those of us who lead can articulate policies and
implement policies that keep our people engage in sure that is equity and
there’s opportunity if not we will get a distancing between those who lead those
who are working and it can lead to significant social disruption some
members of a parliamentary committee examining the sexual harassment Act
appear too supportive of the suggestion that street harassment should be
included in the sexual harassment legislation the current bill focuses on
harassment within organizations however groups making submissions to the
committee have suggested that street harassment and catcalling should be
addressed by the law member of the committee dr. Angela brown burg
yesterday said the suggestion should not be ignored I’m thinking that we must
also be guided by the percentage of harassment and where they please and if
as the data is suggesting that a lot well one minute women are harassed on
street on the street that in terms of sexual harassment that is one of the
sites where it is prevalent I do not believe that we can pretend it does not
exist and I do not believe that we can turn a blind nothing about it committee
member senator Donna Scott motley agreement of what young women and women
generally are enduring in a society so if it might delay us a bit but I do
think it’s a great moment and it’s important that we we consider it very
carefully the discussion followed a presentation
by women’s empowerment for change which suggested that there needs to be
provisions for harassment by third parties such as clients of a business
the group also suggested that the bill should address stalking meanwhile the
death toll from the coronavirus in mainland China increased by 73 to 563
today it’s a third consecutive record daily rise this occurred as experts

cities and forced thousands more into quarantine around the world Hubei

who Bay province in central China has been in a virtual lockdown for nearly
two weeks with its train stations and airports shut and its roads sealed off

and is believed to have originated at a seafood market in the city there have
