An amendment of the Telecommunications Act in 1996 repealed the monopoly of BTC and other service providers could operate in the telecommunications arena in Botswana. Through a privatisation process mandated through the Privatisation Policy of 2000, shares were sold in the state telecommunications corporation; leaving the government of Botswana with a 51 percent stake in BTCL. The telecommunications corporation offers fixed and mobile voice telephony, including pre- and postpaid services; as well as broadband, online phonebook, Wi-Fi connectivity, frame relay wide-area networking, toll-free and contact centre services, and residential, business and leased line services. BTC also provides an integrated digital networks service, private automatic branch exchange systems, aperture terminal services, and international private-leased circuits.
Perry Baker (USA)Nicknamed the Pepperami Stick for his slight frame, in his second season, Baker has already passed 50 tries and is fifth in the all-time USA list. An elegant, rangy runner, with his buddy Carlin Isles on indoor track duty, he was arguably the fastest man in Vancouver and his 70m run down the flank against New Zealand had the crowd on their feet. Give him the outside channel and he’ll glide past you. Baker has a much-improved defence – typified by a double-tackle against France – and his all-round game stands up to scrutiny.Henry Hutchison (Australia)Small in stature and powerfully built Hutchinson is nicknamed ‘the pinball’ and only turned 19 last month but has a dynamo engine and can finish off tries. Hutchinson, who trained with the Brumbies in pre-season and is a fan of Matt Giteau, showed a powerful leg-drive to crawl over the line against New Zealand despite Gillies Kaka trying to hold him up. He showed his footballing skill, with a chip and collect for his try against Russia. Hutchinson is very highly regarded.Pace to burn: Hutchinson in a footrace with New Zealand’s Gillies KakaKitione Taliga (Fiji)While there are more celebrated Fijian Sevens stars on the circuit – Savenaca Rawaca and Jerry Tuwai spring to mind – Taliga was a late injury call-up to the Fiji squad and ended up taking away the Impact Player of the Tournament. The 22-year-old prison guard and cousin of flyer Samisoni Viriviri, Taliga is more of a languid runner, who is deceptively quick, notably outpacing the South Africa defence from 60m. Backs himself, his chip and collect was a speciality over the weekend.Sudden impact: Kitione Taliga leaves the Blitzbokke defence trailingOscar Ouma (Kenya)“Boom, there goes Ouma” was regulary splurted out by commentators over the weekend as the immensely powerful Kenyan left defenders as roadkill in his wake. Against New Zealand and Portugal, Ouma scored brilliant individual tries, and he introduced himself to Sonny Bill Williams earlier in the competition by smashing him into the turf. He crossed the 60-try mark in the tournament and possesses a jack-hammer fend. Approach with caution.At arms length: Kenya’s Oscar Ouma is one of the most powerful players on the circuitTim Mikkelson (New Zealand)Along with Liam Messam and DJ Forbes, skipper Mikkelson is one of the statesmen of the New Zealand Sevens side. Mike Friday, the ebullient USA coach, described him as one of the fittest guys on the circuit and a player who rarely makes mistakes. Mikkelson has the ability to slow the play down when needed, drifting laterally and waiting for the killer pass, or spotting the gap to power away (he has 170 Series tries). Along with DJ Forbes, he’s the glue that holds Tietjens’ boys together. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Speedstick: Perry Baker is full-flow is a joy to behold The Sevens stars were out in force at the inaugural Vancouver Sevens, so with the Olympics just months way, who were the individuals tearing up the turf? Here comes the hot-stepper: Phoenix Hunapo-Nofoa is a crowd-pleaser Complete player: New Zealand skipper Tim Mikkelson has few weaknessesSeabelo Senatla (South Africa)Just the seven tries in Vancouver for the 23-year-old from Stellenbosch, who has now scored 134 tries in 123 appearances for the Blitzbokke. Indeed, there are few finer sights in Sevens rugby than Senatla haring down the wing but he can also step and put in his defensive work. After a brief stint with the Stormers, few eyebrows will be raised if he makes a step into the 15-a-side game at some point.Try time: Seabelo Senatla is scoring at a rate of more than one a matchPhoenix Hunapo-Nofoa (Samoa)A crowd favourite, if he’s not dabbing, Phoenix Hunapo-Nofoa celebrates his tries by drawing an imaginary bow and firing it. Blessed with footwork that would make Fred Astaire green with envy, Hunapo-Nofoa’s dancing through the Kenyan defence on Day 1 brought gasps from the crowd.

Have a planBushels pay the bills for row crop farmers and the best way to get the most bushels is by having a good plan. So says Jennifer Wood, an Innovation Specialist at BASF who works one on one with farmers to develop those plans. And with low prices for those bushels, she told HAT you need to have a plan this year for sure.“This year is going to be especially important to have a solid plan in place. Anytime commodities have trended lower the tendency for some growers is to close that check book and not spend as much money as they have in the past, but the growers I work with I continue to encourage that in a year when commodities are down we really need to focus on maximizing our yield, because bushels pay the bills, and the more bushels we have the less our cost of production per acre is.”What should you plan for, before even planting?“From a weed perspective, a weed resistance management plan to make sure we aren’t exacerbating any problems that we’ve had. From a fungicide and plant health standpoint, what are our plans there? Are we going to do Headline in furrow followed by a tassel treatment? And then the other important thing in my mind is sticking to that plan. It’s really easy to make changes in-season based off of how the crop looks and that sort of thing, but having a plan early really helps you utilize and maximize your yield on those acres.”BASF Innovation Specialists like Wood have been around for about 3 years. They are not salesmen, they’re just on the farm to learn all about the operation and help farmers develop and execute their plans.“We can kind of take a step back and be sort of a third party and look at what they’re doing,” Wood explained. “Then I’ll actually put a recommendation sheet together for growers that is kind of an advanced acre look I like to call it. It’s everything from planting to harvest and what kinds of things you can do and plans you can have in place to get you to ultimately maximize yield.”Listen to the HAT interview to learn more about what happens on the farm with a BASF Innovation Specialist:Jennifer Wood SHARE By Andy Eubank – Mar 8, 2015 Facebook Twitter 2015 An Important Year for Farmers to have a Season Long Plan Home Indiana Agriculture News 2015 An Important Year for Farmers to have a Season Long Plan SHARE Previous articleSunday OutlookNext articleWells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 3/9/2015 Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter
RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” to go further BelarusEurope – Central Asia Organisation June 7, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two more independent newspapers closed down June 2, 2021 Find out more BelarusEurope – Central Asia News Follow the news on Belarus “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says News Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders protested today against the closure of two more independent newspapers by the information ministry for three months. Editors of the twice-weekly satirical newspaper Navinki learned on 3 June that they were being closed down. The weekly Ekho was prevented from coming out the following day.”We are extremely concerned about these new closures,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said. “The press law permits the temporary closure of a news media after two warnings, but the authorities are using ridiculous bureaucratic pretexts to get rid of the independent press,” he said.Navinki did not learn about its closure until the company that distributes it, Belsajuzdruk, refused to distribute the latest issue on 3 June. It has still not received any official notification of its closure. The information ministry gave it a first warning on 21 May for publishing, in the same issue, “two photos of the President of Belarus with an insulting comment.” On 22 May, the ministry gave a second warning about two articles published earlier in the year, in numbers 87 and 90, headlined “The press law” and “Offence to the people’s morality.” Ekho, which has managed to put out only one issue since its creation, was prevented from printing its 4 June issue, in which it had planned to include articles from the independent daily Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta, which was itself closed down on 28 May. The information ministry gave Ekho two warnings, on the pretext that it had changed its legal address, name and the subjects it writes about without re-registering with the authorities. Then, on 4 June, the head of the Krasanaya Sevzda printing works, Uladzimir Celesh, told Ekho that he was ending their contract with immediate effect, thereby preventing that day’s issue from being printed.

That early church was built quite literally on faith and charity from remainder brick and an operating budget that turned just about all of its revenue into active ministry. Through 65 years of outreach, LCPC grew to 2,000 active attendees doing ministry throughout Southern California and in 40 countries around the world. In 2010 the church completed a campus expansion which doubled its physical base for ministry and kept its historical sanctuary as the heart of the new grounds.La CaÃ±ada Presbyterian Church, 626 Foothill Boulevard, La CaÃ±ada.

Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival THE Government is at risk of failing its own recently developed National Maternity strategy if the necessary funding is not made available soon for a new maternity hospital in Limerick.That’s the view of Limerick Fianna Fáil TD Willie O’Dea who was reacting to media reports of serious challenges facing University Maternity Hospital Limerick (UMHL) and Ireland’s other maternity hospitals because of greater numbers of births requiring surgical procedures, and the overall increase in the number of women having babies.“The current maternity hospital in Limerick was built more than 50 years ago and was designed to cater for 3,000 births a year. In recent times it has been dealing with up to 5,500 births a year, and is currently the fifth largest maternity unit in the country,” he told the Limerick Post.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Last year it was announced that a new purpose built ‘state-of-the-art’ maternity hospital had been approved for construction on the main campus of University Hospital Limerick (UHL) in Dooradoyle.“However, when he was when questioned about the matter during his recent visit to Limerick, Health Minister Simon Harris would only say that no announcement on capital funding for the new maternity hospital would be made until some time next year.”Deputy O’Dea is now calling on Minister Harris to reveal whether he has the required capital funding to deliver the new maternity hospital and when he believes it will come on stream.“The National Maternity Strategy, which was only published last January, was presented as a framework to provide appropriate maternal healthcare services across the State. As a strategy, it makes sense, but without the funding, it will end up as a document gathering dust on a shelf.“Maternity services will always be needed, and, as the average age for a woman to become pregnant rises, more and more medical and surgical procedures will be required.“The Minister must start to plan now for Ireland’s future maternal healthcare needs. It is vital that a new maternity hospital is built in Limerick in the very near future and the Minister needs to act quickly to make sure that this happens,” Deputy O’Dea concluded.by Alan [email protected] RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Previous articleRugby – Munster defeat Maori All Blacks at Thomond ParkNext article#film – University Concert Hall will screen Pink Floyd film The Wall Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Twitter NewsLocal NewsNew maternity hospital must be a speedy deliveryBy Alan Jacques – November 12, 2016 1402 Linkedin Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash TAGSFianna FáilHealth Minister Simon HarrislimerickNational Maternity StrategyUniversity Hospital Limerick (UHL)University Maternity Hospital LimerickWillie O’Dea TD WhatsApp Print Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Advertisement Facebook Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Email

And for the 13th time in those 27 quarters, rents rose not just on average nationally but in each of the 54 markets analysed in the Daft.ie report.The website’s latest report also revealed that availability of properties to rent is at an all-time low.“Minister Murphy is fully responsible for this crisis. He failed to introduce rent certainty in Limerick. He made the crazy decision to make one part of the city a rent pressure zone while excluding the rest of city.“He was told at the time that this would not work and would drive up rents. Now we see Limerick renters feeling the pain of his failures,” Deputy Quinlivan commented.Limerick has been particularly hard hit with figures showing that the average rent in the city is now €1,195 per month, a 14.4 per cent increase on the same time last year.“Many working families simply cannot afford to rent, don’t earn enough to access a mortgage but often earn too much to get some state support and that is causing huge stress and worry for families,” the Sinn Féin politician added.Labour Party Housing Spokesperson and Limerick TD Jan O’Sullivan also called on Minister Eoghan Murphy to introduce a rent register and rent controls.“A generation is being robbed of both the hope of becoming homeowners and the opportunity to get affordable accommodation while saving for a deposit. The only winners right how are landlords who are capitalising on this government’s inability to end this crisis,” Deputy O’Sullivan said.“If Minster Murphy does not change tack immediately, we will continue to see rents rise at speed and more families will enter homelessness. The Minister needs to introduce a rent register and make the entire country a rent pressure zone at a bare minimum.”“We know rent certainty alone will not resolve the issue of high rents. It will however put a break on the unaffordable rent increases that thousands of people are facing,” she concluded.

Hilton Honors “Score More on Dining” Amex Offers: Local NewsBusiness Marriott Bonvoy Amex Offers: American Express and Resy Launch – Order In, Help Out Campaign – to Boost Restaurant Takeout Sales WhatsApp TAGS NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 1, 2021– American Express (NYSE: AXP) and Resy today launched a national campaign with a simple message: Order In, Help Out. As part of the Order In, Help Out campaign American Express and Resy are rallying consumers across social media to make #TakeoutTuesday a weekly occurrence. In addition, to help encourage Card Members to order out, American Express is introducing new dining offers on many of its cards. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210201005164/en/ (Photo: Business Wire) With more than half of restaurant owners in the U.S. seriously considering closing for good because of the pandemic, American Express and Resy are working to raise awareness about the positive impact of ordering takeout. According to the American Express Independent Restaurant Insight Study, 89% of small, independent restaurant owners say they depend on takeout orders to stay afloat. The study also estimated that the simple act of ordering takeout can generate, on average, more than $700 million in daily sales for the industry 1. “We all miss our favorite local restaurants – the places where we’ve shared meals with family, celebrated special occasions with friends and relied on for late night cravings. As those experiences have been put on hold, the survival of our favorite places are in jeopardy,” said Elizabeth Rutledge, Chief Marketing Officer, American Express. “With Order In, Help Out, we hope to inspire people to help keep our local restaurants in business, especially during the winter months, one of the slowest and toughest times of the year.” “It’s not just dinner,” said Karen Akunowicz, chef and owner of Fox & The Knife in Boston. “When customers order takeout from an independent restaurant, they are truly helping to keep the doors open and lights on, keeping folks employed and keeping their community and the businesses that make it unique thriving. The impact is far greater than a meal, and they have the ability to deeply affect the lives of those around them.” #TAKEOUTTUESDAY By ordering takeout on Tuesdays, one of the slowest days of the week for restaurants, consumers can help make a difference by sharing their takeout orders from local restaurants in their community. The companies created a hub of takeout inspiration at Resy.com/Takeout, where people can find a collection of stories and guides to help inspire their dining decisions. Consumers can also learn about independent restaurants near them on the hub or discover American Express accepting restaurants by visiting the Shop Small Map. Any restaurant can participate in the campaign by tapping into Resy and American Express’ downloadable Takeout Toolkits, which include assets like printable posters, social stickers and more at AmericanExpress.com/ShopSmall and Resyos.com/takeout. Resy toolkit will be available starting February 17, 2021. “Being able to expand into takeout and delivery has helped our business immensely during the pandemic,” said Kim Hoang, Owner of Di An Di in Brooklyn, New York. “Our takeout business has allowed us to grow our customer base and feed even more people during this difficult time. Our neighbors and regulars who used to dine in with us have continued to support us through takeout orders and we are so grateful for them.” NEW DINING OFFERS FOR CARD MEMBERS Now through December 31, 2021, eligible 2 Delta SkyMiles®, Hilton Honors® and Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express Card Members can enroll in an offer to earn up to $220 in statement credits 3 at U.S. restaurants, after they dine in or take out. To learn more and for complete offer terms, visit here. Additionally, U.S. Green Card Members are already able to earn 3X Membership Rewards points and U.S. Gold Card Members can earn 4X points on restaurants including takeout and delivery. Terms apply. SUPPORTING RESTAURANTS YEAR ROUND Order In, Help Out is an extension of American Express’ Shop Small effort, a global movement to spotlight and support small businesses. Recognizing the impacts of COVID-19 on independent restaurants across the country, American Express has made several commitments to support restaurants since the beginning of the pandemic, including COVID-safe, heated outdoor experiences like The Yurt Villages for American Express Card Members, and American Express Winter Patios in partnership with Major Food Group. To aid the restaurant industry, Resy is providing 100% relief on all Resy fees and billing through June 30, 2021 and was the first reservation platform to introduce fee relief, in early March 2020.

Data was weighted to reflect the demographic composition of the 18+ population of the U.S. based upon gender, age, education, race and region. Restaurant owner data is based on an online study conducted among a sample of 500 respondents who are owners/managers/directors/CEO/etc. of an independently owned restaurant with fewer than 50 employees across all locations. The anonymous survey was conducted online January 8-18, 2021.
