From the Cabinet minutes issued today though, we learn that the Governor not only approved for monies allotted to Development Fund commitments to now be able to be carried over to the new financial year, but that spending up to $75,000 by Government Ministries or Cabinet Ministers would no longer have to be pre-approved by the UK-appointed Chief Financial Officer. The Cabinet notes say specifically that the Governor approves amendments, “to raise the threshold for expenditure requiring approval by the Chief Financial Officer from $10,000 to $75,000.” Cabinet Ministers get to spend more, CFO stays on the job CFO SHOULD GO; CONSTITUTIONAL REVIEW REPORT REVEALS Related Items:Cabinet Ministers, cfo, spending Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, September 21, 2017 – Nassau – The Government of The Bahamas will promote investments in aquaculture, mariculture and modern sea farming strategies.It will undertake a study of the country’s marine resources with a view to creating opportunities for the artificial propagation and enhancement of local fish stocks to assist in addressing growing demands for fish and aquaculture products, regionally and globally, and the ‘steep rise’ in the importation of fish and fisheries products over the last decade.According to fisheries experts, artificial propagation involves human intervention in the process of natural propagation and has the advantages of better rates of fertilization and hatching, protection against enemies and unfavourable environmental conditions, and provides better conditions for growth and survival.The practice can vary in different parts of the world, depending on local conditions and facilities, but artificial propagation starts with the collection and further rearing of naturally produced egg, spawn, or fry, or with the production of the egg itself through artificial inducement followed by controlled fertilization, hatching, and rearing of larvae and fry.Besides natural and semi-artificial propagation, artificial propagation carried out in a well-equipped hatchery is the up-to-date way in which the necessary quantity of fry can be produced.Delivering the Keynote Address at the Opening Session of the 5th Meeting of ACP (African, Caribbean and Pacific countries) Ministers in Charge of Fisheries and Aquaculture, Wednesday (September 20, 2017) at Melia Nassau Beach resort, Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert A. Minnis said his Administration will also seek the assistance of international organizations to provide ongoing technical and financial support to ensure the growth, protection, viability and sustainability of the country’s marine resources.The decision comes as studies show a ‘steep rise’ of 35 per cent in the importation of fish and fisheries products in just over a decade. Prime Minister Minnis said fish imports are currently about 10 times higher than aquaculture production.Prime Minister Minnis said increasing growth in populations within the region, the impacts from a more demanding tourism industry, and the ongoing promotion of healthier lifestyles and diets, have spurred demand for healthy, safe and high-quality foods, including fish and aquaculture products.“Aquaculture production by Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Countries has been around five per cent of total fish production by these countries in recent years,” Prime Minister Minnis said.He noted, “In most Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS), the aquaculture production is nearly insignificant.”By: Matt MauraPhoto caption: Prime Minister Minnis addresses Ministers in Charge of Fisheries and Aquaculture from Africa, the Caribbean, and the Pacific, September 20, 2017 at Melia Nassau Beach resort.

Everton boss Maco Silva has allowed Kieran Dowell to join Sheffield United on loan for the rest of the season but said the club would fight to keep hold of Idrissa Gana Gueye even as Paris Saint-Germain targets him.When asked about the PSG interest on the defender, Silva said as was quoted in the Guardian.“I have heard nothing about that but Gana is an important player for our squad,” Silva said.Premier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league. We will take a…“We don’t want to lose him.”Silva doesn’t plan for a busy transfer window but prefers to conduct business in summer.“January is always a difficult market; sometimes you only need it if you have a bad injury or something special happens. The perfect decision would be one player to come and improve our squad but we have to be 100%, or at least 95%, sure that the signing would make an improvement,” Silva added.
More than 100 defense communities have conducted a joint land use study (JLUS) to limit incompatible development outside neighboring installations, and now central Texas will launch its own to ensure training and testing activities at Fort Hood are not jeopardized by future encroachment.The 13-month study, funded by a $262,000 grant from DOD’s Office of Economic Adjustment, could start next month, reports the Killeen Daily Herald.“We’re doing it on behalf of all central Texas communities that are impacted by Fort Hood,” said Killeen City Manager Glenn Morrison. Killeen, the study’s sponsor, is providing a 10 percent match through in-kind staff work.The post is the only Army installation with a warfighting corps or division headquarters that does not have a completed JLUS. And while Killeen officials say the community does not have any “known encroachment issues,” concerns about residential development on most sides of Fort Hood have been raised. Air quality and light and glare that could affect nighttime training are other concerns the study is expected to address.“I am very aware of the necessity to ensure that future development in Central Texas does not create an encroachment issue and remains compatible with the very important mission of Fort Hood. All of the communities around Fort Hood will be affected by the growth along the [Interstate 35] corridor,” said Bill Parry, the former executive director of the Heart of Texas Defense Alliance.Brian Dosa, Fort Hood’s director of public works, told the Herald the study is “very important” to the post.“It will address several issues that affect the future viability and growth of Fort Hood, including encroachment, effects of projected population growth, natural resources (water, power), transportation and potential impacts on training,” Dosa said.For Parry, who now is the city manager for Gatesville, the study will support the city’s effort to update its long-range comprehensive plan. He expects the JLUS will help identify areas where future development potentially could be incompatible with Fort Hood’s mission.“The JLUS actually provides an impetus for our comprehensive planning process — both will inform the other if we do this correctly,” Parry said.
