National Food and Nutrition Security Policy to be Launched in October

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Government will be launching the country’s National Food and Nutrition Security Policy in October. This was disclosed by Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Roger Clarke, during a statement to the House of Representatives on September 18. The Minister explained that the policy, which will be launched by Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, aims to provide an “overarching framework to achieve the objectives of food and national security.” “All our actions, if they are to be sustainable, must be underpinned by a clear policy, with a holistic approach, appropriate strategies and clear actions,” Mr. Clarke said. During his budget presentation on May 30, Mr Clarke said the policy would “outline specific goals in terms of the percentage of our consumption that must be satisfied by local production. These percentages will not be based on whims, but on our capacity to produce these things.” “We will, at the same time, ensure that local production is as efficient as possible. The food and nutrition security policy must provide the fillip required to stimulate local production in many areas as well as safeguard the nutrition of our children and the most vulnerable,” Mr. Clarke said. The Policy is being developed in collaboration with the Ministries of Health, and Education.

Team India overtakes Pakistan to become the side with successful run-chases in T20Is

first_imgAdvertisement 3s4NBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs8mke2iWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E02( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) zwWould you ever consider trying this?😱72iCan your students do this? 🌚hfRoller skating! Powered by Firework On Friday, Team India defeated New Zealand by seven wickets in the second T20I at Eden Park to level the three-match series 1-1. The visitors chased down the 159-run target with seven balls to spare. With the win, the Men in Blue surpassed Pakistan to become the T20I side to complete the most successful run chases in the format.Advertisement India have managed to pull off a total of 37 wins while chasing in 56 T20I matches since their debut in 2006 in the format. They lost 17, while two ended in a draw. India hence have managed to register a win/loss ratio of 2.176 after the Auckland win, which is the highest for any T20I side. India are followed by Sarfraz Ahmed-led Pakistan who have amassed 36 wins in 64 chases while losing 26. They have a win/loss ratio of 1.384. Australia are next, followed by South Africa and Sri Lanka.(Stats Courtesy: ESPNCricinfo)India are now one win away from winning the series and hence would equal a Pakistan-set World Record in T20I cricket. The win in Hamilton would leave India and Pakistan tied with 11 unbeaten T20I wins. While Pakistan have won all their 11 T20I matches before their South Africa defeat this month, India have won eight and drew two (both against Australia), since their defeat to West Indies in a one-off encounter in July 2017.Advertisement The Hamilton T20I will be played on Sunday and Seddon Park pitch will aide the bowlers more than the batters. “It’s important to understand the mistakes that we made – it’s been a long tour for everyone. So we didn’t want to put a lot of pressure on the boys, just go in there with a clear mind. It’s going to be a cracker of a game in the 3rd T20I, but nothing to take away from New Zealand, they’re still a quality side,” said Rohit Sharma after India’s win Auckland.Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more

Northwestern State Continues Home Winning Streak

first_imgWhile the veteran backcourt of Perez and Keisha Lee have been credited with instilling poise in the Lady Demons, it was time for Youngblood, a freshman, to show what she has learned in her first 14 college games. In the final 20 minutes, the Lady Demons upped their shooting to 63.6 percent from the field, including a 3-for-6 performance from the 3-point arc. NSU, which went 2-for-7 from the free-throw line, knocked down 15 of its 17 second-half free throws. Presley Owens chipped in 11 points for the Lady Demons, who also got two key second-half 3-pointers from Chelsea Rogers (9 points) and a momentum-shifting 3 from Keisha Lee with 5:09 to play. Lee’s 3 set in motion a game-ending 17-6 run for NSU. The furious second-half rally allowed the Lady Demons to overcome a combined 30 points from ACU’s Suzzy and Lizzy Dimba and a double-double of 10 points and 13 rebounds from Sydney Shelstead. NSU limited the visiting Wildcats (7-5, 0-2), who entered the game averaging 75.8 points per game, to 28 points in each half and held ACU to 29.7-percent shooting (19-for-64) for the game. No two free throws were bigger than the ones hit by Janelle Perez (15 points) and Tia Youngblood (career-high 12 points) in the final 1:01 of the game. After Northwestern State forced Alyssa Echols into a traveling violation, Youngblood bullied her way to another three-point play that put the Lady Demons ahead to stay with 25 seconds to play. NATCHITOCHES, La. – Another Southland Conference game, another second-half comeback for the Northwestern State Lady Demons.center_img Perez’ freebie completed a three-point play that tied the game at 56, knocking Abilene Christian from the lead for the first time since the 11:48 mark of the first half. The Lady Demons will remain at home when they host Incarnate Word at 1 p.m. Saturday. It marks the first back-to-back home games for Northwestern State since Nov. 14-18. Northwestern State 61, Abilene Christian 56 It may not be a script that third-year co-head coach Brooke Stoehr prefers, but it is one that continued to produce results, as the Lady Demons rallied from a 13-point halftime deficit to remain perfect in conference play with a 61-56 victory against Southland Conference foe Abilene Christian at Prather Coliseum on Wednesday night. Youngblood entered the game as a 33.3-percent free-throw shooter, but she made all six of her attempts, setting career highs in both attempts and makes. After making just 18.8 percent (6 of 32) of its first-half shots, Northwestern State (8-6, 3-0) put together perhaps its most complete half of the season offensively and defensively to extend its winning streak to a season-long three games.last_img read more
