The past three years have seen a decline in the opening day landings, however the total catch per unit of effort for the season has increased. There are management measures in place to support the recovery of the lobster fishery stock and DECR will continue to monitor the landings throughout this year to inform further fact based management decisions, where required by DECR ” said Mr. Ethan Griesbach, Acting Director of the Department of Environment & Coastal Resources (DECR).DECR Officers have been inspecting catch as fishermen come into the plant and while at sea, and boat patrols have been conducted to deter illegal activities. However, the DECR fleet has been on stand-by to assist rescuing fishermen when needed.Minister Ralph Higgs commented, “I would like to express my appreciation to the staff and management at Department of Environment and Coastal Resources for efforts made to ensure maximum compliance and minimal infractions during the opening of the 2017/18 lobster season. I would also like to thank the fisher folk that came out in numbers, all of whom displayed complete respect for the law and officers. The fishing industry is a very important traditional sector which the government is committed to working along with all stakeholders to ensure future sustainability of the industry”Restrictions relating to crawfish, as per the Fisheries Protection Ordinance, are listed below:Crawfish size restrictions are as follows:o When whole, a length of 3.25 inches measured from the front of the groove between the horns directly above the eyes, along the middle of the back to the rear edge of the back shell; oro When the tail has been separated, a tail weight of 5 ounces whether processed or not;Fishers are not to be in the possession of any egg-bearing crawfish; Fishers are not to take or be in possession of moulting/soft-shelled crawfish or crawfish in early stages of spawning (described as appearing ‘tar-spotted’); and Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Fishers are not to remove eggs from egg-bearing crawfish; Fishers are to ensure that the crawfish are landed unharmed and whole after being taken and landed at processing plants or at home, unless processed at sea as per the terms of the processing license.The DECR appeals to citizens, residents and visitors in the Turks & Caicos Islands, to familiarize themselves with and to uphold the Fisheries Regulations, and urges all responsible citizens to call DECR at 338 4170 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to report any violations.Press Release: TCIG Related Items:

Prime minister Sheikh Hasina speaks at the inaugural ceremony of the National Health Service Week and National Nutrition Week 2019 at at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the capital on Tuesday. Photo:Prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday called for mainstreaming the traditional medicine through a renewed focus on the age-old indigenous healthcare system alongside the conventional drugs as she inaugurated the National Health Service Week and National Nutrition Week 2019.“We can’t neglect the treatment using herbal, ayurvedic, unani, and homeopathy medicines and should give more importance for their development to facilitate the people in getting treatment,” she told the ceremony Tuesday afternoon at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the capital.The premier said by now Bangladesh achieved huge success in producing standard conventional drugs and creating their demands abroad while “traditional medicines has a great value” as well.“The demand of herbal treatment is enormous across the globe,” she said and stressed the need for extensive research for the development of traditional medicine.The prime minister distributed ambulances and jeeps purchased under public fund during 2017-2018 fiscal to facilitate emergency healthcare services to the people at grassroots to mark the first-ever National Health Service Week.She reiterated her government’s commitment to reach healthcare services to peoples doorsteps pointing out the initiatives taken so far for the overall development in health sector.Prime minister Sheikh Hasina speaks at the inaugural ceremony of the National Health Service Week and National Nutrition Week 2019 at at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the capital on Tuesday. Photo:Sheikh Hasina said setting up of community clinics across the country was a part of the commitment to bring all the people under healthcare services.She said around 14,000 such community clinics were currently rendering health care services to mothers and children and providing 30 different crucial medicines to the community free of cost.She simultaneously regretted that such a basic health facility was closed down during the past BNP-Jamaat regime as it was initiated during Awami League’s 1996-2001 tenure in government.The premier said a nationwide training programme was underway to develop skilled midwives to handle delivery cases.She said the government also introduced telemedicine services through call centers called “Sasthyo Batayan” exploiting the ICT.The premier, however, said these initiatives were actually follow up services introduced by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman recalling that his post-independence government had set up 10-bed hospital at union level to reach healthcare services to the people’s doorsteps.Health and family welfare minister Zahid Maleque presided over the function while state minister Murad Hasan spoke on the occasion as the special guest.Health services division secretary Md Asadul Islam gave the welcome address while representatives from World health Organisation (WHO) also spoke at the function.A video documentary on country’s health services was also screened on the occasion.The premier mentioned that Bangabandhu had included health as one of the five basic necessities in the constitution.She said in pursuance of that constitutional policy Awami League government put emphasis on creating skilled manpower such as doctors and nurses through establishing medical universities, medical colleges, and training institutes to facilitate the people standard treatment.Sheikh Hasina said it was her government which set up the first medical university — Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University in Dhaka.She said the government subsequently took a plan to build medical universities in each of the eight divisions while of the facilities three were set up by now in Chattogram, Sylhet and Rajshahi.Sheikh Hasina asked the authorities concerned to take measures in appointing nurses of all academic background instead of recruiting alone with science background revising the rules or laws if required.But she stressed the need for special training for nurses to take care of post-operational patients.The premier said the health sector’s development increased the country’s average life expectancy to over 72 years from was 66.8 years and reduced maternal mortality rate from 3.48 to 1.72 (per 1000) and child mortality rate reduced from 41 to 24 per 1000 live birth.Mentioning that the Awami League government is working to ensure universal healthcare services, she said, her government is currently giving financial aid to disabled. “All the disabled including autistics will be given financial aid from the next budget,” she said recalling the contribution of her daughter Saima Wazed Hossain to the welfare of autism victims.The premier, however, asked the countrymen to be cautious against heart diseases, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and kidney diseases in view of widening phenomenon of such diseases.“These diseases are rather preventive than curative,” she said.Stressing the need for creating awareness, she said, “Increasing mass awareness is one of the best solutions to this end. She also called upon all to take nutrient foods as prevention is better than cure.The premier expressed her determination of achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs) likewise the MDGs (Millennium Development Goals) with making Bangladesh a developed and prosperous country free from poverty and hunger.
Katie Bailey/Texas TribuneSenator Ted Cruz speaks to Texas reporters in Columbia following the South Carolina Republican presidential primary, Saturday night, February 20, 2016.WASHINGTON — With his concession speech behind him and his multimillion-dollar presidential campaign already winding down, Ted Cruz will soon return to the U.S. Capitol and the job he was working so hard to transcend: rank-and-file senator.It will likely be a striking re-entry. At times in recent months, Cruz appeared on track to land the nomination. But soon his campaign apparatus will fade away, as will the buses and traveling press corps. And come next week, he will be back to being just one of one hundred.And when he returns to the Senate with two and a half years left in his freshman term, he will enter hostile territory. There is no way around it: The actions he took over the course of his presidential campaign only further frayed Cruz’s strained relationships with colleagues.This is the chamber where Cruz made a national name for himself by orchestrating a campaign to shut down the government, a campaign that many of his colleagues pleaded with him to abort. This is the chamber where Cruz once called his party’s highest-ranking member, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a liar on the Senate floor. And this is the chamber where Cruz has an unusually disconnected relationship with his home state’s other senator, John Cornyn, who said just last week that Cruz “came here to run for president.”The moment most pregnant with drama will be when Cruz attends his first weekly lunch meeting with his fellow Republican senators. Since the outset of his Senate term, those closed-door gatherings have been the setting of the peak drama involving him.Now the room will be filled with the very people he spent the past year tarring as “the Washington Cartel.” And their leader will continue to be McConnell, a man who, by all appearances, utterly despises Cruz. How will these senators react to his return? “People will applaud because they’re glad [the Cruz presidential campaign] is over,” said a Republican operative with ties to leadership. He spoke in jest, to be sure. But the comment was all the more striking given the panic settling into GOP circles once it was clear Tuesday night that Donald Trump will be the party standard bearer in the fall. Upon his return, Texas’ junior senator could continue his role as the upper chamber’s bomb thrower, or he could adjust his approach to work better with the leadership. It’s a decision that may weigh on Cruz over the next few days: The Senate is currently on a home-state work period and won’t get back to work until next week.So, how does he serve effectively?Several GOP operatives suggested to the Tribune that Cruz ought to zero in on a few specific issues he has long supported — a flat tax, a balanced budget amendment — and thereby make his legislative name in promoting conservative policies. But it is practically impossible to pass anything in the Senate without the support of other senators. Only three senators — Cory Gardner of Colorado, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Mike Lee of Utah — endorsed Cruz, even as Trump sent shudders through much of the Republican Party as all other viable contenders dropped off.Many senators remain reluctant to work with Cruz, Senate sources say, because they flat-out do not trust him. Repeatedly, a point of anxiety mentioned is how he handled a Pacific Rim trade deal last year. First, he backed the proposal via a Wall Street Journal op-ed he wrote with future House Speaker Paul Ryan. Two months later, he pulled his support on the morning of the Senate vote.One GOP consultant pointed to another former Republican second-place finisher as an example Cruz could emulate: U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona.Back in 2000, McCain was the anti-establishment firebrand in his presidential campaign against then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush. On the outs after losing the party’s nomination to Bush, McCain spent the following years repairing his relationship with the president. Those efforts paid off in 2008 when he won the party’s nomination. Falling in line with the GOP nominee, however, is not a calculation that will improve Cruz’s relationships in the Senate.Trump’s temperament — and his record of incendiary comments — terrify Republicans across the country.They are left with four options, none of which leave Republicans encouraged: supporting Trump, declining to vote in the presidential election, voting for a third-party candidate or supporting the likely Democratic nominee, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, herself a reviled figure within the conservative world. Furthermore, the McCain model is built on the notion that Cruz will run again in 2020 — a notion that every Republican interviewed by the Tribune for this story predicted he will do. Cruz’s political idol, Ronald Reagan, made a failed bid for the presidency in 1976, only to win in 1980. But first, he is up for re-election in 2018. The conventional wisdom at this point is that Cruz will run for another six-year term.It is hard to see how anyone ousts him in his home state. Texas shows few signs that it will be an opportunity for a Democratic pickup in a general election, and Cruz ran the table in nearly every corner of the state during his party’s presidential primary on March 1.“I’m not worried about him in a primary or the general,” said Texas GOP consultant Brendan Steinhauser. “In terms of political skills and organization and his email and the fundraising lists he’s built nationally, he’s got a powerful machine in Texas going forward.” A second term could prove appealing to Cruz. Most obviously, it is hard to run for president as an out-of-office candidate. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry struggled to raise money for his second presidential bid without the leverage of the Governor’s Mansion. The Senate also gives Cruz a platform to play a foil to a potential Clinton or Trump presidency. “Maybe he gets another shot,” Steinhauser said. “He needs to focus on being a senator, and he comes back after four years of Hillary or four years of Trump.”This article originally appeared in The Texas Tribune at http://www.texastribune.org/2016/05/03/how-does-ted-cruz-return-senate/.

She reports to Slate president and chief revenue officer Charlie Kammerer.Slate last month hired Jared Hohlt, veteran of New York magazine, as its new editor-in-chief. According to the company, the Slate.com audience is up over 20% year over year and it has over 150 million podcast downloads to date. Earlier this year Slate announced Supporting Cast, a membership program that lets podcasters and podcast networks offer subscription-only versions of their shows.“With Katie we found a high-energy communications specialist that deeply understands journalism and storytelling and will be an ideal and important part of our leadership team as we grow our business,” Kammerer said in announcing her hire. Rayford in a prepared statement added, “I am thrilled to be joining Slate, a company that produces quality journalism that recalibrates the way their readers think about the biggest news stories and cultural moments of the day.”In a note to BuzzFeed News staffers Monday about Rayford’s departure, senior director of communications Matt Mittenthal praised her work promoting the brand and helping launch new BuzzFeed shows. He also cited her skill dealing with news about recent BuzzFeed layoffs and a response from the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller disputing a BuzzFeed News report that Donald Trump instructed former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.“As we’ve been hit with lawsuits, unexplained curveballs from the special counsel’s office, ups and downs in the business, and impossibly bold decisions from our editors, Katie has been unflinching in her defense of BuzzFeed News, and in her commitment to continuing to promote your work and keep business running as usual,” Mittenthal wrote in the memo.
