Timeshare Buyers and Sellers Should Contact the Real Estate Board

first_imgThe Real Estate Board/Commission of Strata Corporations is inviting interested developers or purchasers of timeshare to contact them.Timeshare, which was added to the responsibilities of the Real Estate Board in 2016, is a tourism product involving the erection of a building, which is subdivided into weeks and sold to various owners.“It is a vacation experience [in this case], so you are not buying the unit, but the use of the unit,” Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Real Estate Board/Commission of Strata Corporation, Sandra Watson Garrick, said at a JIS ‘Think Tank’, yesterday (August 9).However, she explained that it can be bought by getting a deed or a lease for a particular time for an amount of years.“So if someone comes on vacation and loves Jamaica, and loves a [particular] hotel that allows timeshare, they can decide to purchase a week in that unit for some time, for example 10 years, as it should allow them to obtain that product at a reduced rate,” Mrs. Watson Garrick explained, adding that these units come with a maintenance fee.Persons who are interested may contact the Real Estate Board or visit the website timeshare.reb.gov.jm.The Board registers timeshare developments and also monitors compliance with the law, as it relates to the selling of the units and how the timeshare owners operate.For timeshare, the Board is collaborating with the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF), the Ministry of Tourism and JAMPRO.The Real Estate Board regulates practitioners in the real estate industry; registers and licenses real estate dealers and salespeople; registers real estate developers and developments, and conducts monitoring to ensure compliance with the law, and protects the purchasers involved in transactions.last_img read more

Municipalities employing casual workers by defying govt order will not get any

first_imgKolkata: State Urban Development and Municipal Affairs minister Firhad Hakim said during a question-answer session in the Assembly that the state government would not provide assistance to any municipality if they employ any casual workers defying the government order.Hakim once again clarified the state government’s stand of not allowing any municipality to induct more contractual staff, thereby creating a burden on the government. He said that many municipalities across the state have more staff strength than what is sanctioned by the government. The number of contractual workers in various municipalities is also very high. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaThe minister told the House that there are around 27,000 casual workers under the Kolkata Municipal Corporation, where the number of permanent staff stands at around 26,000. The scenario is the same in many other civic bodies in the state. In reply to a question posed by CPI-M MLA Tanmay Bhattacharya, Hakim held the previous Left Front government responsible for inducting casual workers, flouting the civic norms. It may be mentioned that during the tenure of the previous government, a huge number of casual workers were recruited in various municipalities. “There was no transparency in the recruitment of workers in the municipalities during the Left Front regime,” alleged Hakim. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayDuring his speech, the minister also claimed that the Trinamool Congress government has brought transparency in the entire system of recruitment. He further added that the recruitments are done strictly through the Municipal Service Commission now. The lists of successful candidates are published and messages are delivered on the mobiles of the candidates. He also told the House that around 30,000 people have been recruited so far in the state through the Municipal Service Commission. There are still around 33,270 vacant posts in various civic bodies in the state, Hakim maintained.last_img read more

GOVT DISTANCES SELF FROM IMRAN KHANS SOCIAL MEDIA POST

One day after the Indian High Commissioner criticised Director of the Department of Public Information Imran Khan for a comment made on social media, State Minister Joseph Harmon today said that the personal view expressed by the Government official does not represent the view of the Coalition Government.“It does not represent the position of the Government. We have excellent relations with India and we continue to work on those relations. It’s a mutually beneficial arrangement which we have with that country and we would like to work to ensure that it gets better”, Harmon said.Minister of State Joseph HarmonHarmon noted that while government does not have much control over what persons post on their personal social media accounts, he said all they can do is ask holders of government offices to restrain from making such statements.“This is what I would call an aberration rather than a norm that someone who actually has a Government position but expresses a personally view….It is not the view of the Government, it is an individual’s view and that is the distinction I would like to make…I am advised that the Prime Minister is addressing the issue and is likely to make a statement soon”, Harmon asserted.Khan on Wednesday posted a comment on his facebook page, questioning whether the Indian High Commission was interfering in the country’s internal affairs and was attempting to engage in destabilisation of the coalition government.Director of Public Information, Department of Public Information, Imran KhanHis statement was in relation to the recently concluded People of Indian Origin Parliamentary Conference held in New Delhi, where a 23-member Guyanese delegation attended upon invite from the Indian Government.The delegation comprised of 17 Opposition and three government parliamentarians as well as three Mayors – all of Indian heritage.The DPI Director asked whether the Indian High Commission deliberately invited only three Government backbenchers and specifically ignored ministers of Indian heritage.However, in response to Khan, Indian High Commissioner Venkatachalam Mahalingam explained that the top hierarchy of both the Indian and Guyana Governments are aware that the invitations were for 23 Members of Parliament and three Mayors of Indian Origin who are not ministers.The Diplomat said that the comment was reckless and intentionally misleading, while adding at the action by the government official is unfortunate, irresponsible, unprofessional and mischievous.The post has since been removed by Khan.

Study blowing into NES cartridges is a bad idea

first_imgIf the phrase “blowing into a video game cartridge” doesn’t immediately strike up years of memories from your early gaming days, you missed out. It was a ritual, a tradition, a part of the coming-of-age of the golden days of gaming. But did you ever stop to wonder if blowing your moist breath all over a fragile electronic product was actually the right thing to do?When the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was released in the US, its design is believed to be what led to the cartridge-blowing phenomenon. Having the game encased inside a hidden compartment led to the conception that it could become filled with dust and other particles, since users could not really see where cartridges made contact with the system. So blowing into the system, and blowing into the cartridges, seemed to make sense. The most compelling reason was because it seemed to work. Of course, there is also an argument that taking the cartridge in and out without blowing into it could have had the same effect.Chris Higgins from Mental Floss decided to research the age-old phenomenon, and found that experts tend to think that it was overall a bad idea, with some calling it nothing more than a placebo effect. Others say it actually led to damage of the games over time.Also brought to light was a study that gaming enthusiast Frankie Viturello conducted in which he blew into one NES cartridge every day for a month, did not tamper with another one, and then used both of them equally. The results can be seen in the picture above. No one can say that looks like a healthy cartridge.Perhaps it is true that there was an immediate positive impact by blowing into the games, but the experts seem to agree that no matter how tempting it is, it should be avoided.via Mental Flosslast_img read more

Canadian trade minister says its up to Europe to save trade agreement

Image: Olivier Matthys European Union Parliament President Martin Schultz. By AFP CETA would link the EU market of 500 million people with the world’s 10th biggest economy.The accord was initially scheduled to be signed next Thursday with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Brussels – and Schulz said that that date remained in the diary.“The problems are on the Europeans’ table and we have to try to resolve them,” he said. “This meeting was very constructive and will perhaps be decisive.“I remain optimistic.”Canada blasted the European Union yesterday as incapable of signing international agreements, as talks to persuade Wallonia to sign up to the huge trade deal broke down.Freeland’s comments fed into warnings that the EU, beset by rising anti-globalisation sentiment, may never be able to land any other deals including one with the United States.“It seems obvious to me, to Canada, that the European Union is incapable now of having an international agreement, even with a country with such European values as Canada, and even with a country as kind and patient as Canada,” Freeland said yesterday.‘Democracy takes time’ Belgian Minister for Climate and Energy Paul Magnette, who is also head of Wallonia’s socialist government which is blocking the agreement between Ottawa and the 28-nation European Union. Source: AP/Press Association ImagesWallonia’s government chief Magnette told news agency AFP yesterday that his Belgian region needed more time but that there was still scope for an agreement.“Democracy takes a little time, Magnette said. “I wasn’t asking for months, but you can’t carry out a parliamentary process in two days.”The Walloon parliament earlier this week refused to let the federal Belgian government approve the deal between Canada and the European Union, which needs to be backed by all 28 EU member states.Belgium has seven elected assemblies: the geographic regions of Wallonia, Flanders and Brussels; the three linguistic communities; as well as a parliament and senate at the federal level.EU trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem said she was still hopeful a deal could be reached.“We have engaged wholeheartedly with Wallonia the last days. Truly sad talks have been halted. Still hope to find solution in order to sign CETA,” the Swede said on Twitter.The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with Canada is opposed by anti-globalisation groups who say it is a test model to push through an even more controversial EU-US trade deal called TTIP, talks on which have also stalled.There have been protests against both deals in several cities.Magnette yesterday pointed in particular to a highly controversial investment protection scheme buried in the deal that has drawn the fury of activists, and which is also involved in TTIP.Wallonia enjoyed support from activist groups like Greenpeace which charged that the deal risked satisfying “corporate greed” and trampling on people’s rights and health standards on both sides of the Atlantic.British Prime Minister Theresa May yesterday dismissed warnings that the EU-Canada deal raised serious questions about whether London could strike a similar agreement after Brexit.- © AFP 2016.Read: 55 people killed, hundreds injured in Cameroon train derailmentRead: Envelope with white powder sent to Hillary Clinton campaign office Image: Olivier Matthys Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article TENSIONS BETWEEN CANADA and the EU are increasing today, after Canada said it was Europe’s “job” to save a trade pact put in doubt by a Belgian region’s refusal to sign on.Chrystia Freeland, the Canadian trade minister, was firm after leaving last-ditch talks with European parliament head Martin Schulz to salvage the proposed accord that is seven years in the making.“Now the ball is in Europe’s court and it’s time for Europe to finish doing its job,” she said, adding that she was returning to Toronto today.“I very much hope that I will be able to return here in just a few days to Europe with my prime minister and that we will be able to… sign this agreement with Europe on 27 October.”Schulz also planned an 11th-hour huddle with Paul Magnette, head of Wallonia’s socialist government which is blocking the agreement between Ottawa and the 28-nation European Union.The Brussels meetings are aimed at “reviving CETA talks.

Yeast problem caused marijuanainfused soda explosions

first_imgMirth Provisions in Longview has solved the mystery of why the company’s marijuana-infused sodas were exploding after delivery to some stores in late September.It was the second time owner Adam Stites had an issue with carbonation in his widely publicized Legal line of products.The first time, in early September, the problems were caused by a shipment of the wrong bottle types to Stites’ facility in Longview, he said.The second time, after Stites had rebottled the products and made a few deliveries to stores, he got a new array of reports that the sodas were popping tops or exploding. He recalled the sodas from shelves in Vancouver, but he wasn’t able to pick the sodas up from Top Shelf, a store in Bellingham, right away.“The sodas were off the shelf immediately” in Vancouver stores, Stites said in an email to The Columbian. “I personally retrieved the Vancouver shipments, but, due to the distance, and the fact that Top Shelf’s owner took his truck and was out of town, we weren’t able to send a driver to pull all product from Top Shelf in Bellingham until Monday. There are still a few more cases which are at the deep on the bottom of the tool chest (that Top Shelf used to store the sodas in) which we are going to remove on Saturday.”last_img read more
