Bob Marley continues to drive Jamaica tourism

KINGSTON, JAMAICA, February 22, 2019 / — In today’s hectic times, Bob Marley & The Wailers’ new “Easy Skanking” video serves as a carefree reminder to celebrate the ongoing global legacy that is and forever will be simply known as Bob Marley.  And where better to take a moment to slow down and appreciate the natural beauty and the joy than in Marley’s home, Jamaica?

Right now, you can take a trip through the joy and walks of life around Jamaica as you take in the sights of the island and feel the vibe that is only felt in Jamaica. This new music video released today by the Marley family, Island Records, and Ume, was created by Pantera Film Studios, directed by Brian Kazez, and shot in various locations around Kingston.

Now that you’ve seen the video, are you already planning your trip to Jamaica? From each morning’s glorious sunrise until the sea swallows the sun at night, Jamaica presents a magnificent palette of color and a kaleidoscope of beauty that makes the island the most precious jewel in the Caribbean. It is a land of unique experiences, engaging activities, breathtaking landscapes, and warm welcoming people.

No place on Earth provides the range of attractions and the cultural diversity that can be found in Jamaica. With its overriding theme of Marley’s famous song, “One Love,” no other place offers such diverse adventure, romance, nature, events, and family times like Jamaica.

When announcing the new video, the Marley camp said: “With its breezy vibe, tropical rhythms, and easy-going decree, ‘Easy Skanking’ is one of the most indelible songs from Bob Marley & The Wailers’ acclaimed March 1978 album Kaya, which was recorded in London concurrently with the material that ultimately comprised 1977s Exodus. The classic song is also featured on Marley’s greatest hits compilation, Legend, which holds the distinction of being the world’s best-selling reggae album of all time, with over 15 million copies sold in the United States and over 28 million worldwide.”

சிறிலங்கா அரசின் தமிழின அழிப்பை தமிழீழ தேசம் மறக்கவோ மன்னிக்கவோ போவதில்லை ! – பிரதமர் விசுவநாதன் ருத்ரகுமாரன்

சிங்களத்தின் இனஅழிப்பே தமிழீழத் தாயகம் உருவாகக் காரணமாக இருந்தது என்பதனை வரலாறு பதிவு செய்யும் போது இனஅழிப்பில் கொல்லப்பட்ட தமிழ் மக்கள் அமைதியாக உறங்குவார்கள்


'சிறிலங்கா அரசின் தமிழினஅழிப்பை தமிழீழ தேசம் வரலாற்றில் மறக்கவோ மன்னிக்கவோ போவதில்லை. சிங்களத்தின் இனஅழிப்பே தமிழீழத் தாயகம் உருவாகக் காரணமாக இருந்தது என்பதனை வரலாறு பதிவு செய்யும் போது இனஅழிப்பில் கொல்லப்பட்ட தமிழ் மக்கள் அமைதியாக உறங்குவார்கள் என நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் பிரதமர் விசுவநாதன் ருத்ரகுமாரன் தெரிவித்துள்ளார்.

கடந்த பெப்ரவரி மாதம் 15ஆம் தேதி வெள்ளிக்கிழமை கிளிநொச்சியில் நடந்த ஒரு பொதுக்கூட்டமொன்றில், அங்கு கூடியிருந்த தமிழ் மக்களை நோக்கி பிரதமர் ரணில் விக்ரமசிங்க கடந்த கால யுத்த பிரச்சினைகளுக்கு 'மறப்போம் மன்னிப்போம்' என்ற வகையில் நல்லிணக்கம் காணவேண்டும் எனக் கோரியமை குறித்து கருத்து வெளியிடுகையிலேயே ருத்ருமாரன் இவ்வாறு தெரிவித்துள்ளார்.

இவ்விடயம் குறித்து அவர் விடுத்த அறிக்கையில் மேலும் தெரிவிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளதாவது:

தென்னாபிரிக்காவில் வெள்ளையின துவேசத்தால் நிகழ்ந்திருந்த இனப்படுகொலைக்கு தீர்வாக அங்கு Truth and Reconciliation Commission நியமிக்கப்பட்டு வழக்கு, தண்டனை எதுவும் இல்லாமல் நிகழ்ந்த பிரச்சினைகள், மன்னிக்கப்பட்டு நல்லிணக்கம் உருவானது போல, இலங்கைத் தீவிலும், அப்படியானதொரு Truth and Reconciliation Commission நியமித்து, கடந்த கால யுத்த பிரச்சினைகளுக்கு 'மறப்போம் மன்னிபோம்' என்ற வகையில், நல்லிணக்கம் உருவாக்கப்பட வேண்டுமென்று சிறிலங்காவின் பிரதமர் கோரியுள்ளார். இதற்கான ஆணைக்குழுவை அமைப்பதற்கான முயற்சியில் ஈடுபட்டுள்ளதாகவும் அவர் கூறியுள்ளார்-

இனப்படுகொலைக்கு உள்ளான தென்னாபிரிக்க கறுப்பர்கள்,அரசியல் விடுதலை பெற்று ஆட்சியில் இருந்தவாறு, வெள்ளையர்களை மன்னித்த தென்னாபிரிக்க உதாரணம், இனப்படுகொலைக்கு உள்ளாகி உரிமைகள் மறுக்கப்பட்டு, அடிமைகளாக இருக்கும் ஈழத் தமிழருக்குப் பொருந்தாது. தென்னாபிரிக்காவின் பிரச்சினை வேறு. ஈழத் தமிழர்களின் பிரச்சினை வேறு. இரண்டையும் ஒன்றுடன் ஒன்று ஒப்பிடமுடியாது.

தென்னாபிரிக்காவின் மொத்த குடித்தொகையில் 8.9 விழுக்காட்டைக் கொண்ட வெள்ளையர்கள் பெரும்பான்மை கறுப்பின மக்களை Apartheid என்று சொல்லப்படுகின்ற இனத்துவேசக் கொள்கையின் கீழ், பெருந்தொகையான கறுப்பினத்தவர்கள் இனப்படுகொலைகளுடன் கூடிய பாரிய இன ஒடுக்குமுறைக்கு உள்ளாகினர்.

ஆனால் நெல்சன் மண்டேலா தலைமையிலான ஆபிரிக்க தேசிய கொங்கிரஸ், தீரத்துடன் போராடி 1995ம் ஆண்டு வெள்ளையினத் துவேச ஆட்சியாளர்களைத் தோற்கடித்து, கறுப்பர்களின் கையில் ஆட்சி அதிகாரத்தைப் பெற்றுக் கொண்டது. இதன் ஊடாக இனத்துவேச வெள்ளையர்கள் தோற்கடிக்கப்பட்டு Apartheid என்ற இனத்துவேசம் வரலாற்றில் இருந்து அகற்றப்பட்டது. அத்துடன் ஒடுக்கப்பட்ட கறுப்பர்களின் கைக்கு ஆட்சி அதிகாரம் மாறியது. வெற்றிபெற்ற கறுப்பர்கள் எட்மண்ட் டூட்டூ (Desmond Tutu) என்ற கறுப்பினத் தலைவரின் கீழ் மேற்படி விசாரணைக் ஆணையத்தை அமைத்து, வெள்ளையர்களுக்கு மன்னிப்பு அளித்தமை வரலாற்றில் நீதிமான்கள் அளித்த மன்னிப்பாக அமைந்தது.

ஆனால் இலங்கையின் நிலைமை அப்படியல்ல. ஒன்றரை இலட்சம் தமிழ் மக்களை இனஅழிப்பு புரிந்த ஆட்சியாளர்களும், அந்த இனமும் தொடர்ந்தும் அதிகாரத்தில் உள்ளார்கள். இனஅழிப்பு புரிந்த இனத்தின் கையில் அரசியல் அதிகாரம் அப்படியே உள்ளது.

இங்கு அரசியல் இறைமைக்காக போராடிய தமிழ் மக்கள் ஆக்கிமிரமிக்கப்பட்டவர்களாய்;, படுகொலை செய்யப்பட்டவர்களாய் அவமானத்துடன் வாழ்கின்றனர். அத்துடன் இனஅழிப்பு புரிந்த சிங்கள இராணுவம் தொடர்ந்தும் தமிழ் மண்ணை தம் இரும்புப் பிடிக்குள் வைத்திருக்கிறது.

இங்கு யார் யாரை மன்னிப்பது?

இனஅழிப்பின் ஊடான ஆக்கிரமிப்பை மன்னித்து தம்மை எசமானர்களாக ஏற்றுக் கொள்ளுமாறு சிறிலங்காவின் பிரதமர் ரணில் கோருகிறார். இத்தகைய எசமானிய அங்கீகாரத்தைத்தான் அவர் நல்லிணக்கம் என்று சொல்கிறார்.

அரசியல் இறைமைக்காக போராடிய தமிழ் மக்களின் அடிப்படை உரிமைகள் எட்டப்படாமலே உள்ளன. அரசியல் தீர்வு என்பது; பொய்க்கதையாகவே ஆகிவிட்டது. யுத்தத்திற்குக் காரணம் தமிழ் மக்கள் அல்ல. அவர்களின் அடிப்படை பிறப்புரிமைகளை மறுத்து, அவர்கள் மீது இனப்படுகொலைக்கான படுகொலைகளை சிறிலங்காவின் இராணுவ-பொலீஸ் தரப்பினர் கட்டவிழ்த்து விட்ட நிலையிற்தான் யுத்தம் வெடித்தது. அந்த யுத்தத்தை சிங்கள தேசமே உருவாக்கியது. இந்த யுத்தத்தைத் தமிழ் மக்கள் எதிர் கொள்ளத் தள்ளப்பட்டார்கள்.

இப்போது இனஅழிப்புக்கு உள்ளான தமிழ்; மக்களுக்கு நீதி வழங்குவதற்குப் பதிலாக இனப்படுகொலையாளிகளை மன்னிக்குமாறு தமிழ் மக்களை, சிறிலங்காவின் பிரதமர் ரணில் கிளிநொச்சியில் நின்று கோரியுள்ளார். இங்கு இனஅழிப்புக்குப் பொறுப்பான அரசியல் தலைவர்களும், இராணுவத் தளபதிகளும் தண்டிக்கப்பட வேண்டியது தவிர்க்கப்பட முடியாதது.

சிறுபிள்ளைக்குக் கூறுவதுபோல முற்றிலும் வேறுபட்ட, அரசியல் தீர்வு காணப்பட்ட, கறுப்பின மக்களின் கைக்கு அரசியல் அதிகாரம் மாற்றப்பட்ட, கறுப்பின மக்களால் வெள்ளையர்களுக்கு அளிக்கப்பட்ட மன்னிப்பை இலங்கைத்தீவின் பிரச்சனைக்கு ரணில்; பொருத்தப் பார்க்கிறார். இது அறிவியல் குறைபாட்டின் காரணமாய் நடைபெற்றதொன்றல்ல. சிங்களத்தின் மீது விழுந்துள்ள தமிழின அழிப்புக் குற்றச்சாட்டில் இருந்து சிங்கள தேசத்தைக் காப்பாற்றத் திட்டமிட்ட வகையில் ரணில் இதனைச் செய்கிறார். இதற்கு தமிழர் தலைவர் எனக் கூறிக் கொள்வோர் சிலரும் சாமரம் வீசுகின்றனர்.

இலங்கைத்தீவில் தமிழின அழிப்பைப் புரிந்துவிட்டு, ஆட்சி அதிகாரத்தில் இருக்கின்ற சிங்கள இனத்தலைவர்களுக்கும், இராணுவத்தினருக்கும் நீதி மறுக்கப்பட்டிருக்கும், நீதிக்காகப் போராடும் தமிழ் மக்கள் எவ்வாறு மன்னிப்பு அளிக்க முடியும்? எவ்வாறு இனவழிப்பை மறந்து விட முடியும்?

இனப்படுகொலை நடந்து பத்தாண்டுகளாகியும் சிங்களத் தலைவர்கள் யாரும் தமிழ் மக்களுக்கான நீதி பற்றி இன்னும் சிந்திக்கும் நிலையில் இல்லை. மாறாக தமிழின அழிப்பை வௌ;வேறு வடிவங்களில் தொடர்ந்து கொண்டிருக்கிறார்கள். இந் நிலையில் சிங்கள தேசத்துடன் இணைந்து வாழ்வது என்பது சாத்தியப்படாது. உரிமைகள் மறுக்கப்படும் ஒரு தேசம் ஒடுக்கும் தேசத்தோடு நல்லிணக்கம் பேசுவது என்பது எசமான்-அடிமை உறவு நிலையாகும். எனவே முதலாவதாக தமிழர் தேசத்துக்கு நீதி கிடைத்தாக வேண்டும்.

“" Genocide can be compensated only by secession"என்ற கூற்று இங்கு கருத்தில் எடுக்கப்பட வேண்டிய ஒன்றாகும். ஐநா மனிதஉரிமைகள் ஆணையத்தில் சர்வதே போர்க்குற்ற கூட்டு விசாரணைக்காக சிங்கள ஆட்சியாளர்களுக்கு வழங்கப்பட்ட காலஅவகாசம் முடியும் நிலையில், இனஅழிப்புக் குற்றவாளிகளைக் காப்பாற்றுவதற்காக தமிழர்களிடம் இருந்து ரணில் மன்னிப்புப்பத்திரம் கோருகிறார். தமிழ் மக்களுக்கு நீதியையும், அரசியல் உரிமையையும் வழங்குவதற்குப் பதிலாக, இனப்படுகொலை புரிந்த சிங்களத் தலைவர்களையும், Killing Machine என சொல்லப்படுகின்ற சிங்களப் படையினரையும் காப்பாற்றுவதற்கு இனப்படுகொலைக்கு உள்ளான தமிழ் மக்களின் வாயிலாக மன்னிப்பு பத்திரம் பெற்று படுகொலையாளிகளைப் பாதுகாக்க முற்படுகிறார். இது நல்லிணக்கம், மன்னிப்பு என்ற வார்த்தைகளின் பேராலான இன்னொரு மோசமான இனஅழிப்புச் சிந்தனை கொண்ட அரசியலாகும். இது குறித்து தமிழ் மக்கள் விழிப்பாக இருக்க வேண்டும்.

இவ்வாறு நாடு கடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் பிரதமர் விசுவநாதன் ருத்ரகுமாரன் விடுத்த அறிக்கையில்

Northern Sphere Mining Corp. (CSE:NSM)

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, February 22, 2019 / — As a result of a review by staff of the Ontario Securities Commission, Northern Sphere Mining Corp. (CSE:NSM, OTC:NSMCF) (“Northern Sphere” or the “Company”) wishes to clarify certain disclosure pertaining to the Scadding Property (“Scadding” or the “Project”).

The Scadding Property discussed herein refers to a number of mineral exploration claims and leases, located northeast of Sudbury, Ontario. The Company wishes to provide a history on the Project in order to provide clarification on all obligations, including cash payments and net smelter royalties (“NSR”).

On May 5, 2009, MPE International Inc. (“MPE”) and Currie Rose Resources Inc. (“Currie Rose”) entered into an option and joint venture agreement (the “MPE-CR Agreement”) which was subsequently assigned by MPE to Trueclaim Exploration Inc. (“Trueclaim”) pursuant to an assignment agreement dated May 5, 2009. Under the terms of the MPE-CR Agreement, MPE (or its assigns) earned a 51% interest in certain mineral exploration leases (“Scadding Leases”) comprising a portion of the current Scadding Property. The Agreement further states that anytime after earning the first 51%, MPE (or its assigns) may earn up to 100% interest in the Scadding Leases subject to a payment to Currie Rose of $2,000,000 and a 3% Net Smelter Return.

In addition to the acquisition of the Scadding Leases, Trueclaim announced staking of wholly owned mineral exploration claims in the Scadding area on September 15, 2009. On October 15, 2009, Trueclaim entered in to an agreement with Pacific North West Capital to acquire a 100% interest in additional mineral exploration claims upon which Trueclaim granted a 1.5% NSR to Pacific North West Capital. On July 7, 2010, Trueclaim entered into an additional option agreement with an individual landowner to acquire a 100% interest in additional mineral exploration claims in the Scadding area subject to a 2.0% NSR. Trueclaim refers to its interest in these mineral exploration claims along with the Scadding Leases discussed above as the “Scadding Property”.

On November 12, 2015, Northern Sphere entered in to a joint venture agreement (the “Trueclaim JV Agreement”) with Trueclaim, pursuant to which Trueclaim granted the Company an 80% interest in Trueclaim’s interest in the Scadding Property (including Trueclaim’s 51% of the Scadding Leases), subject to the obligations and NSR’s committed to by Trueclaim as outlined above.

In September of 2018, the Company acquired the remaining 20% of Trueclaim’s interest in the Trueclaim JV Agreement. Northern Sphere is currently the Operator and manages 100% of the Scadding Property. The Company has an option to earn the remaining 49% interest in the Scadding Leases subject to a payment to Currie Rose of $2,000,000 and a 3% Net Smelter Return and may do so if and when it determines that it can begin commercial production on the Scadding Leases and once it would be most advantageous to do so.

DON JURAVIN RESEARCH finds that adhering to the European or Israeli safety and driving standards can save about 22,470 American lives a year. 1.35 million die annually worldwide from car crashes while 20 to 50 million get injured.

Assuming the population of USA 321 million, Israel 8.4 million, Euro-top 210 million (Germany 82 million, France 67 million, Italy 61 million)

| World Traffic Accident Death Key Factors |

* Worldwide car accidents deaths: An unspoken staggering estimated 1.35 million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes.

* Worldwide Accident injuries: A huge toll on families and the economy are 20 to 50 million injuries from traffic accidents injured annually.

* Road traffic crashes are a major cause of death among all age groups and the leading cause of death for children and young adults aged 5–29 years.

* Income & car accidents: My research shows that the risk of dying in a road traffic crash is more than 3 times higher in low-income countries than in high-income countries. More than 90% of road traffic deaths occur in low-income and middle-income countries. Road traffic injury death rates are highest in the African region. Even within high-income countries, people from lower socioeconomic backgrounds are more likely to be involved in road traffic crashes.

* Young male Vs. female driving: Males are more likely to be involved in road traffic crashes than females. About three quarters (73%) of all road traffic deaths occur among young males under the age of 25 years who are almost 3 times as likely to be killed in a road traffic crash as young females.

* Speed: Every 1% increase in mean speed produces a 4% increase in the fatal crash risk and a 3% increase. An increase in average speed is directly related both to the likelihood of a crash occurring and to the severity of the consequences of the crash. For example, In the serious crash risk.

* Pedestrians: The death risk for pedestrians hit by car fronts rises rapidly (4.5 times from 50 km/h to 65 km/h).

* Car-to-car side impacts: The fatality risk for car occupants is 85% at 65 km/h.

* The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has set an ambitious target of halving the global number of deaths and injuries from road traffic crashes by 2020.

* GDP cost of car accidents: Road traffic crashes cost most countries 3% of their gross domestic product.

* Vulnerable road users: More than 50% of all road traffic deaths are among vulnerable road users: pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists.

* Mobile phone usage while driving: Drivers using mobile phones are 4 times more likely to be involved in a crash than drivers not using a mobile phone. Using a phone while driving slows reaction times (notably braking reaction time, but also a reaction to traffic signals), and makes it difficult to keep in the correct lane, and to keep the correct following distances.

* Hands-free phones are not much safer than hand-held phone sets, and texting considerably increases the risk of a crash.

* Seat-belt wearing reduces the risk of death among front-seat passengers by 40−65% and can reduce deaths among rear-seat car occupants by 25−75%.

* Only 57% of countries require seat-belts to be used in cars by both front-seat and rear-seat passengers (38% of low-income countries, 54% of middle-income countries and 83% of high-income countries).

* The use of child restraints (which include infant seats, child seats and booster seats) can reduce deaths of infants by as much as 70% and deaths of small children by between 54% and 80% in the event of a crash.

CompanionLink Releases Android Outlook Sync for Windows Store Office 365

CompanionLink for Outlook and Samsung Galaxy

Windows Store Outlook is now pre-installed on most Laptops. CompanionLink for Outlook can synchronize Outlook with Android and iPhone Contacts and Calendar.

PORTLAND, OR, US, February 22, 2019 / — CompanionLink Software has released an update to CompanionLink for Outlook to provide full compatibility to the Windows Store version of Office 365 Outlook. This update makes CompanionLink the only vendor of Android Outlook Sync that supports Windows Store Outlook.

“Windows Store Outlook is part of Microsoft’s push to Universal Windows Platform,” says Wayland Bruns, CTO for CompanionLink. “This version of Office comes pre-installed on most laptops. Our team has re-engineered our Outlook Sync and Google Sync products to support Microsoft’s UWP endeavor.”

CompanionLink customers will run smoothly with the UWP version of Office. Competing sync vendors require their customers to convert to the ISO version of Office. For people who buy a new laptop, this process requires obtaining a download file and license key from the laptop vendor, and engaging a cumbersome process of uninstalling and reinstalling the Office 365 software.

CompanionLink for Outlook provides Outlook Android Sync and Outlook iPhone Sync for Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes from any Outlook version, including Outlook IMAP and POP3 folders, iCloud folders, and Outlook 2010.

CompanionLink uses the DejaOffice CRM App on the phone to store the Outlook Data. DejaOffice has a direct-sync mode to send data to the native Android and iPhone Contact and Calendar Apps. DejaOffice supports calendar colors and push updates for faster sync.

CompanionLink for Outlook cost is $49.95 for a perpetual license that allows you to install on up to three computers; work, home and laptop. CompanionLink is based in the US and provides free telephone technical support for its products. See for more details.
