TVJ Midday News: Higher Food Prices | Dengue Preventative Measures – November 6 2019


good afternoon I am Andrea Chism with
the midday news for this Wednesday November 6 a special welcome if you’re
watching on one spot Mediacom consumers will have to dig deeper in their pockets
for the upcoming festive season as the price of agricultural produce will
increase speaking with TVJ news this morning president of the Jamaica
agricultural society Len Worth Fulton said this is due to the recent drought
which affected the majority of farm producing areas well I think we’ll have
some higher price than Yuja in that we came off late in the drought and so you
not have the full production of things like sorrel which we are accustomed to
will have some Cyril but not in the same quantity as we had in yester years he’s
expecting that prices will increase by as much as 15 percent that epi in higher
inputs because the dollar is not behaving itself and that feed right
through to every input most all of these input are imported
so another ala know is that 141 it can’t do anything good for farmers so
something needs to be done to control that volatility I don’t say to fix it
but it is too volatile now and for too long and it is affecting the importation
of planting material and if the Jamaica agriculture society says it will be
looking to the government to clear a debt of over 20 million dollars this
follows the staging of the Denby Agricultural Show in Clarendon three
months ago mr. Fulton says the debt is due to the
non payment of monies by some major sponsors 15 million is owed to the
National Water Commission while another 13 million is owed to a private security
company I am going to approach the government to
advance us something to to clear them and then it would be the Jews and the
government instead of the Jas and private contractors so I would that’s
that’s the route we want to go Minister with responsibility for information call
Samoa says the revocation of cabinet minister Daryl Vaz is u.s. visa will
have little impact on investor confidence in Jamaica mr. Sam muda was
responding to questions at the post cabinet press briefing today it’s a
matter that affects the minister himself quite personally as for the government I
doubt very much if it will have that great impact on the government and
therefore I’m not fearful of the image of the government I am NOT apprehensive
about any fallout by investors in their confidence in this government because
the work of this government has clearly demonstrated that the country is being
run efficiently services are being provided on a timely basis and the
opportunities for growth and development have never been better the US visas of
mr. Vaz and senior opposition MP Philip Paul well were revoked recently by way
of correspondence from the United States embassy they were informed that if they
had intentions of traveling to the US they would have to reapply the
politicians were among a list of business persons and members of D
Jamaica constable Air Force whose visas were revoked and in light of concerns
about an increase in dengue cases the Education Ministry is increasing
preventative measures in schools acting permanent secretary dr. grace McLean
provided an update at today’s post cabinet press briefing we have sent out
the system all the appropriate documentation for them to be guided by
we collaborate with the Fogg in as well as the tips that are provided for our
school administrators we also follow up closely with our teachers to ensure that
if and when there are symptoms which we all know the students are facilitated in
seeking medical treatment immediately and I believe so far we have been doing
an excellent job in terms of the collaboration and we will continue to do
so the woman who was taken into custody in connection with the fatal stabbing of
a senior member of the national women’s football team
Tariana Clark has been charged 20-year old Rochelle foster over Brandon Hill
st. Andrew was charged the last night this was confirmed by crime officer for
the st. Andrews Central Police Deputy Superintendent Percival Anderson MS
foster is to appear before the corporate era Criminal Court next week
reports are that last Thursday the women got into an altercation over a cell
phone in half way tree which led to miss Clark being stabbed an investigation has
been launched following the removal of a several children from a compound which
is believed to be the site of a religious group in Norwood st. James the
office of the children’s advocate confirmed that the children were taken
from the property during operations last week and yesterday children’s advocate
Eden Garden Harrison told our NewsCenter that the children were removed after
concerns were raised about their welfare so without giving too many details as
this is a life matter that will involve appearances before the court I can
compound that there was in fact an operation today there was also one last
week and there are several issues at play of both religious and sexual
natures and we basically are concerned about certainly the children who are
involved there are two broad categories of children who seem to be on the
compound those of tender years which would be below 12 and adolescence and
we’re of course concerned about their present
the compound and the nature of the activities that they’re involved in the
children’s advocate gave details on what wanted her office doing overall at OCA
is just to see that everything that’s probed points to securing the best
interests of these children but as I said it’s a live issue it’s unfolding
and so I really can’t give very much more detail at this time in this video
several individuals on the property objected to the removal of the children
when we visited the church this morning they refused to speak with our news team
and it’s Sam for break more stories right after these messages welcome back and we’re continuing the
news the National Environment and planning agents in Napa has given
information which is in conflict with the allegations made by some members of
the Discovery Bay Community Development Committee members have alleged that the
Dolphin Cove attraction at Port osika Beach have caused increased pollution
but senior manager for the environmental management subdivision at Napa Richard
Nelson says based on information gathered by the agency the claims cannot
be verified criticisms and advocacy by community activists have increased since
the opening of the beach a recent letter in the Delina by the community committee
ignited another round of debate and a sharp reaction from dolphin Cove which
has denied the claims for nipper and the Minister of Health that is the
Environmental Health Unit also bought a consult and from time to time on we call
a free samples and do independent testing and this also provides some
verification of what a la the independent lab is doing know what it is
sure is that before the dolphins were introduced what never Johnny with you
dilemma has picked up is that it’s pretty much similar to to what has been
obtained from 2005 and and pretty much pristine quality water good quality of
water and since introduction of the dolphin the data has shown no
significant change it remains pretty much more or less the same as before and
after so we have not seen any information in data that indicated that
there has been any increased pollution the justices of the Peace Association
held its annual awards in st. and yesterday to recognize those who have
made outstanding contributions in society CEO of the rgr cleaner
communications group Gary Allen commended the justices of the peace who
have stayed true to the theme dedication to service above self we as Jews are
called upon to try and find some of all we help our community to be right
and many many many of you working on er than even those not being honored
tonight are doing an outstanding job are trying to help to introduce that balance
in our society which has turned as he highlighted that having on question of
the integrity is one of the main characters that a JP must have he
suggested that they be trained in order to assist in the effective operation of
the justice system I encourage more of our justices of the
peace to see and I encourage the authorities to recommend justices of the
peace who have been so trained to be used in some of the high-paying core
edited mediation sessions with the some JPS being in conflict with the law mr.
Allen reminded them of their sworn duty critical repairs to the poppy market are
expected to be completed soon for years vendors have been complaining about the
status of the facility counselor for the papen division Venetia Phillips gave an
update on the project we have the electrical work going on because we want
to make sure that the property market is properly lit because we have had
concerns from vendors about the security and so that too is happening
simultaneously as we do the restoration of the roof I still notice that we have
water in you know just one passage and we’re going to be dealing with that in
terms of the soakaway in the meantime is Philip said there have also been
improvements in garbage collection at the market we have impressed upon the
office staff here at the market to continue to monitor how the garbage
being managed by the grown persons we have here we don’t always unfortunately
get collections on time but we are working with NSW ma who partner with us
to cut away the garbage from the beer when we’re not able ourselves to respond
from KCC residents of Newlin Daniela st. Thomas are calling on the Jamaica Public
Service to replace a light post in the community the post has deteriorated and
poses a threat to residents one resident told our news center that the matter was
reported to the Moran to my office of the JPS but they are yet to get a
response if you notice the wire even did because the root of the force is open
rat node and we try to we make several complain about it but nobody take us in
consideration and this thing is very dangerous to both our home and to the
people in the community because if this pours fall down it gonna cost PS so we
are asking for an urgent look at the force and if they can do something about
it even the street light for the past three four months now this street light
is old and we’ve been we’ve been talking about it and nobody seems to recognize
us and the time now for a preview of what’s coming up in this evenings health

speeding they will stop when they want to and when they’ve had enough they will

    Food going up? It's called "Austerity" difficult economic conditions created by government due to bowering money from the World Bank. The US dollar has no value due to printing money from nothing ($1.00 = negative .$05 Cent). USA is the center of austerity, Jamaica's connection to the US dollar and it's government is Austerity 101. The only answer to the slavery caused by Austerity is to honker down and plant food and trees with food on it where you can. Share out the food with thy neighbor. The government will not be able to change the price of food and the prices will not go back down. Inflation is in control and unstoppable. Grills will not stop anything. Every Elder, the JP's, the people must come to together to keep the peace. Food in the ground is in the best interest for Jamaica. Treat the soil like gold (learn how to do this with the internet) and the children will develop correctly. The government needs to make Education the #1 priority for Jamaica to move forward. The State of Emergency plan is not and will not stop "Austerity" that was and is caused by inflation due to printing money out of thin air. Educate the Nation and nothing but good will come. Allow the government to Borrow more money from them out there is total corruption in terms of this can cause Genocide.

    The power pole that is going to fall, it who you know that can make the call and it's fixed. Call your JP and he will guide you.

    TVJ, Thank You for helping the people and keeping the politicians honest and tuned into what the people need.

    Note: Money spent at the Embassy to get out is enough to revamp the entire Educational system.
