Phone signal jammers ‘last resort’ – BJMP

first_imgMondejar, meanwhile, saw nothing wrong withthe use of signal jammers at the IDJ. He said these devices in fact enhance thesecurity measures at the prison facility./PN ILOILO – “Last resort.” This was howSuperintendent Gilbert Peremne, assistant regional director for administrationof the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), described his office’sdecision to install cellphone signal jammers at the Iloilo District Jail (IDJ)in Barangay Nanga, Pototan town. Six signal jammers were installed at the IDJin June to prevent inmates with mobile phones from making outside transactionssuch as trafficking illegal drugs. This Nov. 19 the SP committees on Public Orderand Security, Transportation and Communication and Public Utilities will beconducting an ocular inspection at the IDJ. Representatives from the NationalTelecommunications Commission Region 6 would be joining the inspection, too.The focus would be the range or coverage of the signal jammers. “In the event the inspection would show thatthe coverage is over 20 meters, the SP could issue a resolution calling for itto be scaled down to only within the IDJ vicinity para indi maka-apekto sa mga residents sang Barangay Nanga,” said Mondejar. BJMP tried everything to stop the smuggling ofcontrabands such as illegal drugs and mobile phones into the prison facility,he said, such as inspecting jail visitors and the things they bring inside. For his part, Palabrica urged the localoffices of concerned government agencies – National TelecommunicationsCommission, Philippine National Police, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, andBJMP – to draw up a plan to secure the IDJ but at the same time relieveBarangay Nanga residents of the inconvenience caused by the signal jammers. “This matter has serious implications on theeconomic and social life of residents in this barangay. They cannot optimizetheir livelihood activities or stay in contact with families and relativeselsewhere. Life nowadays is so dependent on cellular communications,” Palabricastressed. According to SP member June Mondejar,chairperson of the Committee on Public Order and Security, the inspectionshould settle the matter. “Residents within the 300-meter radius of thefacility cannot send text messages or make phone calls or use the internetadequately. The main center of the barangay which is 100 meters away isseverely affected, too. Official communication to other government agencies,especially in emergency situations, cannot be conducted 24/7,” lamentedPalabrica.center_img Peremne clarified that the BJMP nationalheadquarters is in fact requiring all jails with over 1,000 inmate-populationto have phone signal jammers. Last week, Palabrica said the signal jammerswere inconveniencing Barangay Nanga residents living nearby. Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) member MattPalabrica, however, slammed the move as a cover-up to the incompetence of jailguards to secure the prison facility. Signal jammers are not the answer to thenagging issue of drug or contraband control and apprehension, added Palabrica. Iloilo District Jail (IDJ) in Barangay Nanga, Pototan town. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN The IDJ, designed to accommodate some 2,000inmates, currently has a population of 1,529, said Peremne. Peremne, however, insisted that the IDJ signaljamming devices have a radial coverage of 20 meters at the most. “The answer lies in the integrity andcompetence of the leadership and personnel of the BJMP,” he said.last_img read more

Messi loses ban appeal

The ruling means he cannot return to international play until November 3 and will therefore miss his country’s friendlies against Germany and Ecuador.Argentina face Germany on October 9 and then Ecuador on October 13.

Adarabioyo: I’ll return a better player to Man City

first_imgRelatedPosts Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says David Silva recovers from COVID-19 Man City top players test positive for coronavirus Tosin Adarabioyo has admitted that he’s loved his season with Rovers and believes he returns to parent club Manchester City a better player.Adarabioyo swapped the Etihad for Ewood almost a year ago, and certainly impressed with his calm displays in the back four throughout his 35 appearances in all competitions. His assured performances ensured that the towering defender quickly became a favourite with the fans, with his three goals also helping to cement a strong bond with the supporters in the stands.And looking back on his year in East Lancashire, the 22-year-old says he departs with the fondest of memories from his stay.“We were all disappointed that we didn’t get over the line and get into the play-offs, but looking back, I’ve really enjoyed my time at the club,” he told iFollow Rovers in his farewell interview.“We were desperate to get into the top six and it was heartbreaking that we couldn’t quite do it in the end.“It’s been a long season with everything that’s gone on, and it was mainly down to a few results as to why we didn’t get ourselves over that line. “It’s been a great experience to be amongst some great lads. On a personal level, I feel like I’ve had a lot of good performances and have shown people what I can do.“Last season I didn’t play at centre half as much as I’d have liked to, so I’m delighted to have played regular football at the heart of the back four.”His three goals helped the team to a trio of victories – over Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton Athletic and Bristol City.His goal against Wednesday was the first of his professional career, and really got his relationship with the supporters up and running.“The moment that stands out was the win over Sheffield Wednesday at home,” Adarabioyo admitted. “It was my first goal and then Bucko [John Buckley] went on to get that dramatic winner late on. “It was a goal that put us back into the game and helped us get the win, a great day for all of us.“I love our fans, they’ve given me lots of support and a lot of love ever since I walked theought the door. I’ve come here, I’ve had the song, which I really appreciate, it’s just a shame they haven’t been in stadiums for the final games.“I’m very thankful to them, they’ve been fantastic all season and I certainly wish them and everyone at the club all the very best for the future.”Tags: Blackburn RoversEithadManchester CityTosin Adarabioyolast_img read more

Syracuse works on improving set-piece defense ahead of game against Louisville

first_imgShortly before the end of practice Tuesday morning at the Hookway Fields Complex, Syracuse players were finishing up a drill in the penalty box. Neither a goalie nor a ball was in use. Instead, each SU defensive player was assigned to an offensive player to track step-for-step within the box for 10-second intervals. It was designed to improve Syracuse’s defense of set pieces. Against Virginia Tech on Sunday in Blacksburg, the Orange conceded three goals, all of which came off set pieces. SU (4-7-1, 0-3 Atlantic Coast) has generally struggled this season to defend them, but the Orange has been working in practice this week to improve on one of its weaknesses before hosting Louisville (4-5-1, 1-2) on Sunday. Head coach Phil Wheddon said that against top ACC teams, Syracuse is bound to allow some corner kicks and free kicks. “We know that,” he said. “We’re getting our fair share as well. It’s a fast, attacking, dynamic game.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU defender Erin Simon agreed, saying it’s “inevitable” that other teams will get set pieces, and specifically corner kicks, over the course of the game. But she said Syracuse’s back line can limit those opportunities. “If the ball looks like it’s going to roll out and be a corner kick, the least we can do is slide and get a throw-in out of it instead of a corner kick,” Simon said. Jessica Vigna, another defender, said it’s important for Syracuse to be in position to not only stop crossing passes but to also then clear the ball out of SU’s end without letting it go out of bounds. But the Orange knows that breakdowns will come and other teams will get at least some corner and free kicks. And it’s in those instances when SU has struggled.“For a lot of people,” Wheddon said, “set pieces are a mental down time because they’re not high intensity moments in the game.” In practice this week, Syracuse has emphasized a number of match-up drills focused specifically on defending set pieces. In the drills that include a ball, each defender takes one offensive player with the goal of simply not letting that player score. “You’re going to do whatever you can,” Vigna said. “You’re not going to let them out of your arms. You’re going to slide. You’re going to do whatever.”And if a player does score, the entire defense is punished. After her team allowed a goal Tuesday, they had to a run a series of suicides before resuming practice. The scouting report on Syracuse is that the Orange’s biggest weakness is defending set pieces. Wheddon’s added focus in practice is hoping to change that.“We haven’t done a good job,” Wheddon said. “I hold myself accountable for that because I need to make sure my players are fully prepared for what they’re going to face.” Comments Published on September 30, 2015 at 8:43 pm Contact Michael: mdburk01@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Syracuse football preseason player file No. 6: Steve Ishmael

first_img Comments Ishmael has shown the capacity to be a solid receiver — he has three 90-yard receiving games — but he’ll also have to prove that he can be a go-to No. 1 receiver. In 24 games, he’s had zero or one catch in 11 of them and fewer than 50 yards in 16 of them.The junior wide receiver improved from his freshman to sophomore season, cutting the number of games with fewer than 30 yards in half, upping his total yards (415 to 570) and maintaining a decent yards per catch average (15.4 in 2014 and 14.6 in 2015).So while Ishmael hasn’t shown a consistent ability to be the No. 1 receiver, the numbers and overall improvement are encouraging for him to make that jump.Read more about Steve Ishmael:Steve Ishmael is doing all he can to turn Syracuse’s program aroundSteve Ishmael has breakout performance against PittsburghSteve Ishmael plays vital role for SU ahead of facing ClemsonThree-star WR Steve Ishmael commits to Syracuse Facebook Twitter Google+ With Syracuse football training camp a few weeks away, The Daily Orange beat writers, Chris Libonati, Jon Mettus and Matt Schneidman, will analyze one of the top 10 preseason storylines, top 10 position battles or reveal one of 10 player files each day.

Jamaica Wants to Establish Plant-Based Medicine Research Center

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica, CMC – The Jamaica government says there are plans to establish a center in Jamaica to further advance plant-based medicine research.Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries Minister,  Audley Shaw says a “programme of cooperation” involving noted Jamaican scientist and businessman, Dr. Henry Lowe as well as  Dr. Julius Garvey, the son of National Hero Marcus Garvey; and the Director at Harvard University Medical School, Dr. Wilfred Ngwa, is being finalized for the associate research center’s establishment.“In fact, Dr. Ngwa will soon be visiting Jamaica to further advance these discussions as Jamaica’s unique microclimatic conditions place us in an enviable position globally,” Shaw told the Jamaica Information Service (JIS).Shaw noted that of just over 100 plants which are known and used for medicines, 51 are indigenous to Jamaica.“We must also not forget that Dr. Lowe and others have developed plant-based medicines in Jamaica that are now world-renowned, and are presently submitting more applications for further development of additional plant-based medicines to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States Government,” he added.Shaw said a recent study by Harvard University scientists which showed that cannabis can potentially help cancer victims is “very significant.”He said he first became aware of this “potentially significant initiative” while attending a conference on plant medicines, hosted by Dr. Nwga at Harvard in June.The Minister said given Jamaica’s “unique” history with respect to cannabis and many other plant-based medicines, “exciting days” are ahead for the country in this regard.Shaw indicated that the Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) has now issued 54 licenses to cannabis entrepreneurs, and will shortly complete export regulations to facilitate the legal export of cannabis raw materials, such as buds and oil extracts.For his part, CLA Director, Delano Seiveright, said with pancreatic cancer predicted to be the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths by 2020, the medical breakthrough by Harvard’s scientists is a “major victory” for the cannabis industry.“The significance here is that the life expectancy for cancer patients could significantly increase. We, in Jamaica, have to continue to do our part in ensuring that we are ready to capitalize on medicinal marijuana and the important role it is playing in scientific discovery,” he said.Scientists from Harvard University’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, in their study published in the journal ‘Frontiers of Oncology’ on July 23, revealed that a chemical found in cannabis has demonstrated “significant therapy potential” for treating pancreatic cancer.The resulting drug, ‘FBL-03G’, is said to be a derivative of a cannabis flavonoid, the naturally occurring compound found in plants, vegetables and fruits which, among other things, provides their color.The results, according to Dr. Ngwa, one of the study’s researchers, are “major.“The most significant conclusion is that tumor-targeted delivery of flavonoids, derived from cannabis, enabled both local and metastatic tumor cell kill, significantly increasing survival from pancreatic cancer,” he noted.Dr. Ngwa said the significance of this is that, because pancreatic cancer is often diagnosed in later stages, once it has spread, and the flavonoids have proven capable of destroying killing other cancer cells, this could mean the life expectancy of those with the condition could increase,” the noted academic added.“If successfully translated clinically, this will have a major impact on the treatment of pancreatic cancer”.last_img read more
