#JaVotes2016: JLP father, PNP mother, baby in caught in the middle

first_img But Chevelle Gordon, the baby’s mother is a PNP supporter and thinks the child will follow her ways. As labourites and comrades mingle outside a polling station in Greenwich Farm, the contrast of young Bernard, dressed in green, resting across his mother’s orange clad chest could not be missed. Chevelle, however, said that the colour of her child’s shirt is merely coincidental. “Its not the father, is me put in him green. It nuh have nuttin fi do with it,’ she said. The PNP wears orange and the JLP wears green. The senior Bernard says green represents prosperity, and that with him being the head of the household his son will follow his lead. The PNP’s Simpson Miller is being challenged by the JLP’s Victor Hyde for the seat she has won since 1976. Bernard told The Gleaner that he expects Simpson Miller to win the constituency but is hopeful the JLP will win the general elections, which would give both him and his partner something to smile about later. Shellando Bernard believes his young son, six months old, Lionel, represents a green sprout in the People’s National Party dominated South West St Andrew. The elder Bernard, is one of the few hundred JLP voters in the constituency controlled by Portia Simpson Miller, the PNP president and Prime Minister of Jamaica.last_img read more

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: RECIPES FOR SUCCESS!

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: Over the last few weeks, I have been giving hints and tips on how you can keep on-track with your resolutions.I know that for some of you, resolutions are a distant memory, but for those of you that are hanging onto your New Year’s goals by a thread, I am going to give you even more tips that will make it easier for you to stay on-track.When it comes to food, the one thing that I try and get across to my Personal Training clients and to my Rushe Fitness class members, is that food should NOT be bland and boring. It got to the point last summer where I went off and designed the Rushe Fitness Meal Planner for them to give them ideas on how to make good food more interesting and taste better.It has 126 meal ideas in it ranging from breakfasts, lunches, dinners and even snacks and every one of them has loads of taste.Why is this important you might ask?That’s simple! If your food does not look or taste appealing, you won’t want to eat it and therefore will be less likely to stick to your nutrition plan for any period of time.After all, who actually enjoys eating bland and boring food?I certainly don’t, and from training hundreds of people over the last few years, no-one else does either.So, with that in mind, let’s give you some Recipes for Success. JAll of these meals are low in calories and high in taste and exclusive to the Rushe Fitness Members! Breakfast has been called the most important meal of the day, but for most people, a bowl of cereal is the most exciting option they can think of.This recipe for Bacon and Egg muffins can be made the night before and simply heated the following morning.Bacon and Egg Muffins. INGREDIENTS 6 Eggs2 rashers Bacon1 small Onion, finely diced1 tsp dried Oregano½ tsp of Chilli Powder1 tbsp. Donegal Rapeseed OilMETHODPreheat oven to 180c (160f), 350f, Gas Mark 4.Line a muffin tin with 4 paper cases.In a bowl whisk the eggs & seasoning together.In a small frying pan, using the Donegal Rapeseed oil, fry the bacon until crispy.Allow to cool slightly and chop/crumble the bacon.Add the bacon & onion to the egg mix. Beat well & divide between the 4 muffin cases.Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until firm.These savoury muffins can be eaten chilled & taken to work in lunchboxes and they are a great alternative to eating plain eggs which some don’t find appealing.Lunch comes next.Again, when it comes to lunch, the majority of ideas that I see are often based around soup, or a sandwich or a combination of the 2.Those aren’t the most interesting lunches I can think of and I know we can do better.BBQ Chicken and Bacon.INGREDIENTS 4 skinless Chicken Breasts4 rashers BaconMarinade4 tbsp. Tomato Puree1 tbsp. Fish Sauce2-3 drops of Tabasco2 tsp Honey2 Garlic cloves, crushedMethodCut a few slashes into both side of the chicken breasts & place in a dish.In a bowl mix together the marinade ingredients & pour over the chicken breasts. Make sure each breast is thoroughly covered in marinade.Cover the dish & store in fridge for 4 hours or more.Oil the bbq grill. Place chicken on the grill & cook for 8 minutes each side.During last 4 minutes of cooking time. Grill bacon for 2 mins each side.Serve chicken & bacon with fresh salad.Chicken breast is something that people struggle with to flavour, this BBQ sauce is low in calories, carbs and fat and tastes great JOnto dinner.For most people, this is something where most people actually do quite well, but it is easy after a long day to just order a takeaway and throw all your good work to the wayside.I’m going to give you a takeaway with a difference.This meal for 2 is really high in protein and super low in carbs, calories and fat.Bombay Tiger Prawn CurryINGREDIENTS 1kg Tiger Prawns, peeled & deveined1 tsp Ground Cumin1 tbsp. Curry Powder1 tbsp. Tomato Puree50ml Lime Juice1 tbsp. Ginger, grated1 Garlic Clove, minced1 tsp Ground Ginger1 tsp Garlic, mincedMethod1 Onion, in chunks 2 tbsp. Olive Oil1.In a food processor, blend the ginger & garlic together. Next add the onion to make a paste.2.In a large non-stick frying pan, heat oil over low heat & add the paste. Cook for 5 mins to release the flavours. Stir in the tomato puree & sauté for another minute.3.Add the spices & continue to sauté for a further minute.4.Add the lemon juice & bring to a simmer. Finally add the prawns & cook for 2-3 mins.This is a great alternative to the local Indian curry that is loaded with calories and it tastes even better. JIf you would more recipes like these, you can find similar ones in my 6 week Rushe Fitness Meal Planner that is exclusive to my members.My new phase of classes starts on the 15th of February and I am NOW taking bookings.They are expected to sell out as usual so don’t leave it too late and miss out.#TrainSmartContact me for more information through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: RECIPES FOR SUCCESS! was last modified: January 31st, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:emmet rushefitness columnrecipessuccesslast_img read more

2011 Mobile Trends, According to Developers

first_imgApp Revenue SourcesAnother change from 2010 to 2011 is the shift in app revenue sources. In 2010, the majority of revenue (47%) came from downloads of paid apps. The rest of the revenue was generated by ads (11%), in-app purchases (8%) and upgrades (0.3%). 33.3% of developers surveyed reported they did not monetize their app.However, in 2011, the revenue generated by downloads will decrease, although it will still be largest source at 38%. Other methods including ads (17%), in-app purchases (31%) and upgrades (2%) will increase. Only 13% of developers reported they would not monetize their apps. But when looking at the developers’ 2011 plans, things began to change. Out of 221 responses, 90% said they would be developing for iOS, 73.8% said Android, and both BlackBerry and Windows Phone 7 saw major increases, at 22.2% and 24.4%, respectively. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Downloads are also used as a measure of an app’s success, according to 64% of developers. Others measure success by app usage (60%), revenue earned (44%), app store ranking (34%) and the un-install rate (4%). Other data in the report looks at Urban Airship’s platform specifically, asking developers if they used push notifications now, and what they wanted to see the company offer in 2011.

ICC Champions Trophy: In-form England face Pakistan pace test in first semi-final

first_imgHaving swept aside all opposition in the group stage, hosts England are expected to face a strong pace attack when they take on Pakistan in the first semi-final of the Champions Trophy cricket tournament here on Wednesday.Pakistan managed to bundle out a formidable Sri Lankan batting line-up for 236 runs in their last Group B match after deciding to bowl first at the Cardiff Wales Stadium here on Monday.The Pakistan bowling attack comprising pacers Junaid Khan, Mohammad Amir, Fahim Ashraf, Hasan Ali and their lone spinner Imad Wasim will look to test the strong England batting line-up as well.Junaid Khan and Mohammad Amir were in excellent form in the previous match against Sri Lanka and will aim to recreate some of that magic against the hosts.Some of the deliveries by the duo against Sri Lanka were almost unplayable and a similar performance at the same venue on Wednesday could prove to be ominious for England.If Pakistan do manage to upstage the hosts, it will be their first appearance in the final of a 50-over International Cricket Council (ICC) tournament since losing to Australia in the title clash of the 1999 World Cup.The last time they qualified for a 50-over ICC tournament was at the 2011 World Cup when they lost a thriller to arch-rivals India in Mohali.However, Pakistan’s power-packed line-up of fast bowlers is offset to some extent by the lack of too much firepower in their batting.Most of the Pakistan batsmen have struggled during the group matches. Skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed and opener Fakhar Zaman are the only Pakistan batsmen who have shown some kind of form in this tournament.advertisementSarfaraz struck an unbeaten 61 runs in the must-win last group game against Sri Lanka, which Pakistan won by three wickets to qualify for the last-four stage.England, on the other hand, were the dominant team in Group A. They dominated teams like Australia, Bangladesh and New Zealand in home conditions for an all-win record in the group stage and will look to maintain their winning streak.England’s batting line-up, boasting the likes of Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morga, Ben Stokes and Jos Butler, has looked to be in an impressive form but is expected to face a stern test against the Pakistan bowling attack.Joe Root also sits among the top run scorers in the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy scoring 212 runs in three matches with the highest score of an unbeaten 133 against Bangladesh.The bowling department for England has also looked good, trying to provide an equal balance to the side under the likes of pacers Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood, Jake Ball, Ben Stokes and their spinners Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali who have consistently delivered for their side.England lead the head-to-head battle with a 6-4 record against Pakistan in ICC tournaments. The last time Pakistan defeated England in an ICC event was in 1996.Squads:England: Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(wk), Moeen Ali, Steven Finn, Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood, Jake Ball, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Billings, Adil Rashid, David WilleyPakistan: Sarfraz Khan (c and wk), Ahmed Shehzad, Azhar Ali, Babar Azam, Faheem Ashraf, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail, Hasan Ali, Imad Wasim, Junaid Khan, Mohammed Amir, Mohammed Hafeez, Shadab Khan and Shoaib Malik.last_img read more
