Injured Dhawan ruled out of World Cup cover Pant drafted into India

first_imgSouthampton: Indian batsman Shikhar Dhawan was Wednesday ruled out of the ongoing World Cup and replaced by young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant after failing to make enough recovery in a fresh assessment of his thumb fracture. Dhawan, 33, picked up the injury on his left thumb during the June 9 clash against Australia in London and was initially ruled out of three games — against Pakistan (June 16), Afghanistan (June 22) and the West Indies (June 27).

His hand will remain in a cast till mid-July which rules him out of the ICC 2019 World Cup,” team’s administrative manager Sunil Subramanium told media persons. “We have written to the ICC requesting Rishabh Pant as a replacement,” he added. Pant comes in with an accumulated ODI experience of five matches but is considered a trump card owing to his fearless approach. He was part of the official standbys list along with Ambati Rayudu.

It is learnt that the swashbuckling opener, who played through pain to score a hundred against Australia, “had no chance” of recovering in time. “Dhawan was never going to be fit in time. However, the team management was reluctant to name a replacement. It was never on the same page with selectors who wanted to announce an official replacement right after his (Dhawan’s) diagnosis,” said a source privy to the developments. Pant was brought in as cover for Dhawan after the team management decided to wait on the senior opener’s recovery but an assessment of the injury this week did not throw up encouraging results. As a consequence, the 21-year-old Pant, whose omission from the original squad had kicked up a storm given his exceptional form in the past one year, has got the big break. Pant had scored impressive hundreds during the Test tours of England and Australia. He also enjoyed a good run in the IPL last month, scoring 488 runs with a strike rate of over 160.last_img read more

Ministers sign motion to impeach CJ

Earlier last week Foreign Minister G.L. Peiris accused the Chief Justice of violating the constitution over a key judicial appointment, escalating tensions between the government and the judiciary. Several Government Ministers have signed a motion to impeach Chief Justice (CJ) Shirani Bandaranayake, sources claimed today.A Deputy Minister told a private TV station today that he too had signed the motion against the CJ. Foreign Minister G.L. Peiris said Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake had overlooked 29 more senior judges when naming Manjula Tilakaratne as secretary of the Judicial Service Commission in May, accusing him of overstepping his remit.Tilakaratne was stabbed last month after he alleged there was a plot to destroy the independence of the judiciary. “The constitution has been clearly violated in making this appointment of JSC secretary,” Peiris said in a statement, according to AFP.“The Supreme Court has no discretion to appoint any judge, it (the JSC secretary) must be the seniormost judge from courts of first instance.” Although the government did not raise objections to Tilakaratne’s appointment then, reports say that it has been irked by his statement last month that there was a “conspiracy to destroy the independence of the judiciary” read more

UN refugee agency praises cruise ship for rescuing migrants whose ship had

“This incident highlights the urgent need for states to cooperate in order to prevent the tragedies that are occurring almost daily, in the Mediterranean and elsewhere, when people use desperate means to seek a better life or refuge,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) António Guterres said. The MS Noordam was on its way from the Greek city of Piraeus to the Turkish port of Kusadasi on Tuesday, when the crew spotted several people in the water off the Greek island of Samos. The ship rescued 22 people from various countries, including Somalia and Iraq but sadly one child drowned before the group could be rescued. The group were taken to Kusadasi on Wednesday. “We want to commend the shipmaster and crew of the MS Noordam for their humanitarian act and for upholding international law and custom. We are also grateful to the government of Turkey for receiving these people in need,” Mr. Guterres said. UNHCR is working closely with the UN International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and other relevant UN agencies to safeguard the integrity of the international search and rescue regime so as to offer support and guidance to ships’ masters who come to the aid of refugees and asylum seekers in difficulty at sea. Shipmasters have an obligation under international law to rescue any persons in distress at sea. Persons rescued at sea should be disembarked at the next port of call, where they should be admitted, at least on a temporary basis. “At a time when captains are constantly asked to boost efficiency and cut costs, it remains vital that they continue to take the time and trouble to rescue people in peril – whether they are refugees or any other people in distress,” UNHCR said. read more

Five trends in counterterrorism measures risk violating human rights says UN expert

Five “current trends” in fighting the global scourge of terrorism risk violating human rights, an independent United Nations expert told the newly established Human Rights Council today as it began the second week of debate on a wide range of issues at its second session in Geneva.Martin Scheinin, Special Rapporteur on the protection and promotion of human rights while countering terrorism, said these trends consisted of States:resorting to the notion of “terrorism” to stigmatise political, ethnic or other movements they simply did not like;questioning or compromising the absolute prohibition of torture and of all forms of cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment; going beyond the criminalization of incitement to commit serious crime, by penalising the “glorification” or “apology” of terrorism, or the publication of information that “could be useful” in the commission of acts of terrorism; justifying tightening immigration controls by the risk of terrorism; the issue of terrorism largely replacing drug-related crime as the primary public justification for extending the powers of the police, coupled with the abandonment of many of the traditional safeguards. In presenting his report, Mr. Scheinin stressed that his mandate was not only to disclose and criticize human rights violations, but equally importantly to identify and publicize best practices, in terms of legislative and practical solutions that combined an effective fight against terrorism with the protection and promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms.Representatives from almost 20 countries took part in discussions following the presentation. The Council today also heard reports on the effects of structural adjustment policies and foreign debt on the full enjoyment of all human rights; the use of mercenaries as a means of violating human rights and impeding the exercise of the right of peoples to self-determination; the right to adequate housing as a component of the right to an adequate standard of living; the right to education, and human rights and transnational corporations.It also heard concluded discussions on a report from the Special Rapporteur on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography. Special Rapporteurs are unpaid independent human rights experts.This second session of the Council, set up earlier this year to replace the much-criticized Commission on Human Rights, opened last Monday and will run until 6 October. read more

From end zone to stage former Buckeye Maurice Hall back in the

“Maurice showed up and everybody knew who he was, but he was completely humble and he knew that he was just beginning,” McClatchy said. “He was a voracious learner — he was willing to try anything.” Hall had taken a theatre class at OSU when he was fairly new to campus and really enjoyed it. But he was concerned that his demanding football schedule wouldn’t allow him to participate in theatre. McClatchy, who’s currently teaching at OSU while pursuing his master’s in acting and performance, said Hall had a certain amount of poise that carried over from his football career. “He had the confidence that comes from accomplishments. He was uncertain about how to go about doing things, but he was confident that he’d (be) able to figure it out,” McClatchy said. “That gave him a little bit of a leg up.” Hall also believed his football career, particularly the season the Buckeyes won the National Championship, helped to ease his transition to acting. “In 2002, the practice, the work ethic, the faith and development, all of the things I learned while playing at Ohio State, and understanding what it takes to dive in and start from scratch really helped me out,” Hall said. Hall acted in a few plays and filmed the movie “Best Supporting Daddy” in Columbus. Still, Hall knew that, in order to pursue an acting career, he’d have to move to L.A. Hall quickly recognized the stark contrast between the protective blanket of Buckeye Nation and the fame-driven L.A. society. “Even though I did some independent films and some plays in Columbus, the reason I was picked for the roles was because I was a name that people knew,” Hall said. “People would come see the movie or the play because I was in it, not necessarily because I was a good actor. And that was one of the big differences in coming out to L.A.” Suddenly, it no longer mattered what Hall had accomplished on the football field. “Everybody in L.A. is some kind of actor, singer or other entertainer. It’s one of those things where you’re not going to get a role because you played football for Ohio State,” Hall said. “You have to actually be a good actor. So, from that aspect, it’s persuaded me to really pursue the craft and learn as much as I can and get better.” Charley Boon, Hall’s acting teacher at the Joanne Baron / D.W. Brown Studio in Santa Monica, Calif., said Hall has improved by “leaps and bounds.” “There are people who go out into the workforce and they have my name on them. Sometimes that can be a scary thing,” Boon said, “but the wonderful thing about Maurice is, I would not hesitate to recommend him for a job at all.” Hall recently made appearances on “Grey’s Anatomy” and “House.” “I had the opportunity to be on the show ‘House,’ where you get a chance to see Hugh Laurie, Omar Epps, you know, these great actors,” Hall said. “I see what they do as far as preparation, and being in that atmosphere drives you to want to be better.” There’s an old saying that to be a successful actor, you have to be able to deal with rejection. Hall admits he’s faced his fair share of it. He’s currently working at Lululemon Athletica, a company that sells exercise and yoga clothing. It’s a supplemental job, helping to pay the bills until the crapshoot that is the auditioning process leads to something more lucrative. “Right now it’s pilot season,” Hall said. “I’m hoping to get some opportunities coming up.” Maurice Hall is familiar with the venomous stereotype that haunts athletes who have made a similar career choice. It followed Hall across the country, from Columbus, Ohio, to Los Angeles. “Initially you hear that ‘Oh, he’s just a football player that wants to get into acting’ kind of thing, and I wanted to really get rid of that stereotype,” Hall said. “So, I applied the work ethic and the practice methods I used playing football, and put it into acting. “Eventually it got (to) the point where my growth as an actor was visible, and more people started to look at me as an actor, versus a football player who just wants to act.” Hall was a running back on the Ohio State football team from 2001-04, winning a National Championship in 2002. The San Diego Chargers signed him in April 2005, but less than a month later he was unemployed. Hall returned to Columbus to pursue his master’s in sports administration, while working as an assistant to OSU athletic director Gene Smith and doing sports television work for NBC. “During football season, I would do sports analysis stuff pertaining to high school football, along with Ohio State football,” Hall said. “The more I did that, the more I got comfortable with being in front of the camera and having fun with it.” His future in acting was starting to take shape. While working on the show “Football Friday Nights,” Hall had an opportunity to perform in skits. “I liked the aspect of coming up with skits,” Hall said, “and performing them on TV really got me motivated to want to do more.” So, Hall searched for an agent. Though there might not be any Ari Emanuels in Columbus, Hall found a commercial agent. “She referred me to do some acting classes to help with my auditioning for things going on in Columbus,” Hall said. “Once I started taking acting classes, I kind of fell in love with it.” Hall began to search Craigslist for acting classes and found an advertisement for an audition at MadLab Theatre, where he landed on the doorstep of acting instructor Kevin McClatchy. McClatchy, who was aware that Hall was a former Buckeye, said Hall was disciplined and worked hard from the start. read more

Islamic State supporters celebrate Manchester attack online

first_imgGreater Manchester Police chief constable Ian Hopkins speaks to the media Other Isil supporters said the attack was revenge for the UK’s involvement in the bombing campaign against Isil in Iraq and Syria. “It seems that the bombs of the British airforce over children of Mosul and Raqqa has just come back to Manchester,” wrote one user.  SCREENSHOTS Growing celebrations of situation in #Manchester on key Islamic State-linked Telegram channels. Strong indicator of IS linkage pic.twitter.com/RSJBt0gJcR— Michael S. Smith II (@MichaelSSmithII) May 23, 2017 In that case the attacker, Khalid Masood, appears to have been inspired by the jihadist group but does not seem to have taken orders directly from an Isil controller. Isil claimed him as “a soldier of the Islamic State”, a vague term that does not mean the attack was centrally planned from Syria.  Michael S. Smith II, a US-based terrorism analyst said the celebrations on Isil social media groups were a “strong indicator” that the attack may be linked to the jihadist group. There were similar celebrations after the attack in Westminster in March and Isil eventually claimed credit for the assault which killed five people.

In one video an English-speaking supporter of Isil held up a home made sign with the word “Manchester” and the date of the attack.”This is only the beginning. The lions of Islamic State of Iraq and Sham are beginning to attack all the crusaders,” the masked man said in the short video. Greater Manchester Police chief constable Ian Hopkins speaks to the mediaCredit:Peter Byrne/PA Wire Isil often waits for some time after attacks in the West before making a statement, partly to ensure that it does not claim credit for an attack that was carried out by al-Qaeda or another group.  Isil supporters posted official statements from Greater Manchester Police about the attack and kept each other abreast of the latest news. They even cheered as the value of the pound fell against the dollar after the attack.last_img read more

Roskill cautions on the DRC mining industry

first_imgRoskill notes that “The Investing in African Mining Indaba, or Mining Indaba, is dedicated to the successful capitalisation and development of mining interests in Africa. Having run for over 20 years in Cape Town, the event brings together investors, mining companies, governments and other stakeholders from around the world.”This year, Roskill will again be exhibiting. Roskill is a leader in international metals and minerals market research and consultancy focussing on minor metals, steel alloys and industrial minerals.Roskill states that “developments in the DRC could have major implications on metals and minerals markets.“The DRC is the 11th largest country in the world and the third-largest in Africa. Given its scale, it is perhaps unsurprisingly blessed with vast natural resource endowments including cobalt, copper, diamonds, gold, iron ore, manganese, phosphate, niobium, tantalum, tin, and zinc. “The mining sector in the country faces several difficulties. Infrastructure and energy supply issues continue to hamper mining and processing operations, as well as the wider economy. Despite the country having huge hydropower potential, the energy sector remains a major inhibitor to economic development and social inclusion. Further, the DRC’s restrictive railway and road infrastructure continues to impact negatively on the country’s economic growth.A key issue likely to impact the sector is the potential of a political crisis. In 2006, the DRC held its first multi-party elections and in 2011, President Kabila was re-elected for a second term. Elections were due to be held in November 2016 but in January that year, the Independent National Electoral Commission of the DRC released a statement announcing that it would require a further 18 months to update the country’s voters roll. Further, the Minister of Interior declared that several new electoral laws would need to pass through Parliament before an election could take place.  These announcements were perceived by the opposition as strategy of glissement (sliding), seeking an indefinite delay of elections.“The next Presidential election in the DRC is highly important as it marks the end of the maximum term that can be held by Joseph Kabila, whose second, and constitutionally last, term ended on December 19 2016. Suspicion has continued to mount that, as has been the case in Burundi, Congo-Brazzaville, Uganda and Rwanda, Kabila is seeking to delay the electoral process in an attempt to extend his 15-year tenure.  As of Q1 2017, the most likely fixed deadline for the next election, as set out in a 2016 national dialogue agreement, is April 2018. The delays have exacerbated local tensions and led to protests, subsequent crackdowns and fatalities.“Any disruptions in the DRC are likely to impact the cobalt market more than any other.  The DRC has by far the greatest cobalt resources of any country and accounted for roughly 65% of world mine supply in 2016.  As such, it is the principal source of global feedstock for refined cobalt – consumed mostly in lithium-ion batteries.”last_img read more

Protesters Rally Outside Pipeline Company In Houston

first_imgListen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /01:32 In downtown Houston Wednesday, people in traditional tribal dress were dancing to drums, chanting and waving incense through the air.They joined dozens of other protesters against Energy Transfer Partners. The Dallas-based company is building the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline and the Trans-Pecos Pipeline, which runs through Texas. “The fact that they’re entering communities without permission, they’re entering tribal lands and desecrated, sacred territory,” said Yvette Arellano with TEJAS – Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services. “It’s corporate greed and corporate-driven.”Florian MartinIndigenous and environmental activists rally outside the Houston offices of Energy Transfer Partners, which is building the controversial Dakota Access and Trans-Pecos pipelines.One protester, who only identified himself as Eddie for fear of backlash, said the Trans-Pecos Pipeline runs through the lands of his ancestors, the Carrizo/Comecrudo tribe in West Texas.“They already have knowingly destroyed a 5,000-year-old archeological site, sacred site of our tribe,” he said. “And anything that they’re digging out there is going through the graves of our ancestors.”In a statement, Energy Transfer Partners said they discovered an archeological site early on and adjusted the pipeline route accordingly.The company also said it’s committed to “protect cultural resources, the environment and public safety” (you can read the whole statement below).On Sunday, a federal court lifted an injunction against the Dakota Access Pipeline. The federal government has asked Energy Transfer Partners to voluntarily halt construction pending further review, but the company is not complying. Energy Transfer Media StatementWe are pleased with the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals to dissolve the administrative injunction that had temporarily suspended construction activities on the Dakota Access pipeline in an area near the proposed crossing of the Missouri River at Lake Oahe. The Appeals Court has now joined with the Federal District Court in denying the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s motion for an injunction to stop construction of the Dakota Access pipeline.The decisions by two separate federal courts show that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers acted with great care and followed the law with respect to the river crossing permits issued to Dakota Access. The Army Corps and Dakota Access carefully considered the views of all potentially affected tribes that chose to participate in the consultative process prescribed by Congress, and fully complied with both the letter and the spirit of the National Historic Preservation Act. Their careful and sensitive work has been reviewed and approved by highly qualified private and state-employed archeologists. We continue to believe that the Army Corps will soon issue the easement for approximately 1,100 feet necessary for the crossing beneath the Missouri River—the sole remaining authorization necessary for completion of the project.In light of Sunday’s court decision, Dakota Access looks forward to a prompt resumption of construction activities east and west of Lake Oahe on private land. We reiterate our commitment to protect cultural resources, the environment and public safety. We echo the urgings of the North Dakota Governor, its two Senators, its Congressman and local enforcement officials that any protests be undertaken in a peaceful and law abiding manner. All construction efforts will be undertaken in close coordination with State and local law enforcement officials, and we are hopeful their law enforcement efforts will be supplemented by those of the federal government. – / 7center_img Share X Trans-Pecos PipelineThe survey teams conducting an analysis for the Trans-Pecos Pipeline discovered a previously undocumented archaeological site early in the process. This information was submitted to the Texas Historic Sites Atlas and the site was determined as eligible for the National Register of Historic Places by the Texas Historical Commission. As a result, the pipeline route was adjusted so that this site would not be within the boundaries of our right-of-way. There are no archeological sites within the pipeline right-of-way along the entire route. Anything to the contrary is not correct. last_img read more

Broadway culture will be in India soon Hasan

first_imgPlaywright Saif Haider Hasan, known for directing dramas like Ek Mulaqaat and Gardish Mein Taare, says the concept of commercial theatre is changing and India will soon attract Broadway-like culture with bigger names from cinema taking a plunge.Hasan, whose latest play Mr and Mrs Murarilal was fronted by actor-director Satish Kaushik and TV actress Meghna Malik, is known for roping in big names for his dramas.“The concept of commercial theatre is undergoing a change. Earlier, the commercial theatre had a lot of gimmicks. There was high production quality but the content would be in the zone of a drawing room comedy, a sex comedy or maybe a spoof or an adaptation. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfAll these were primarily English theatres or adaptation of Broadway,” says Hasan. The playwright says there was no commercial theatre in Hindi, which is limited to regions like Delhi, which has a very strong culture because of NSD, and Bombay (Prithvi theatre).“In Bombay, there was Marathi theatre, which was the theatre of the rebel where you had playwrights like Vijay Tendulkar. Then you had the psychological theatre with Satish Alekar, Mahesh Elkunchwar. But the commercial theatre was not there in these languages and it was looked down upon,” said Hasan.  Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveKnown for his lavish productions, Hasan says the idea is to tell the audience an engaging story and making it “an experience”.“What I did with Ek Mulaqaat was, I brought a very niche subject which you would usually do sans any frills and I sort of put it in your face with the casting (Shekhar Suman and Deepti Naval), lighting and original music. Now if you call that commercial theatre, so be it,” he says.“The ambition is not that we are making a commercial theatre, the idea is to tell a very engaging story. Earlier, it was done only with dialogues but now we are making it an experience. Now if you are depicting a night, please make it look like a night. We use lights to do that. These lights are not just for effect, they convey a certain meaning.”  Hasan says his plays can be branded commercial as he is trying to bring more people by using inventive ways. It is commercial because there is money which goes into its making and it needs to be recovered, he says, justifying the ticket prices. “That (ticket prices) is the only way we recover it. So if you have a Shekhar Suman or Deepti Naval or Satish Kaushik and a director like Saif Haider Hasan, you will get great production quality and there will be expenses. So, you need to pay for it.” Hasan, who has roped in famous names like Suman, Naval, Sonali Kulkarni and Arif Zakaria for his stage productions, says in near future Bollywood stars would be turning to stage. “It is a very interesting phase and I predict that in next 10-15 years a lot more of the bigger actors from cinema will be moving to the stage. My biggest aim was to direct (Amitabh) Bachchan saab but I don’t think it would happen,” he says. Asked if the Broadway trend is making its way in India with known faces like Naseeruddin Shah, Puneet Issar, Anupam Kher, Saurabh Shukla, Shabana Azmi already doing plays, he says, “Very soon… bigger stars and actors are going to come on stage soon.” “A lot of them are doing theatre for the first time. It has again started getting press. Commercial theatre, if not equal to TV, still pays a decent figure and a lot of people who have been out of work are now getting work. It’s a fair and legitimate thing. It is not like they are opening up a shop.” “On the flip side of it, in Bombay the entertainment page has doubled up. Everybody is doing theatre and there are all kinds of theatre good, bad and ugly. The good thing is a lot of people are now doing theatre,” he says.Hasan says there should be more auditoriums as theatre people are eating into each other’s business.last_img read more

March 4, 2011 – Digital image detectors and X-ray tubes for fluoroscopy, angiography, cardiology and cone-beam CT imaging will be on display at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna. Varian will showcase several products, including its PaxScan digital image detectors.”The new panel and tube platforms offer a path to improve image quality, greater cost efficiency, and potential for increased patient throughput,” said Steve Kimmel, vice president of sales and marketing for Varian X-Ray products.The products to be highlighted at ECR are:• The new M-1500, the company’s first X-ray tube developed specifically for advanced mammography applications such as tomosynthesis and computed tomography (CT). It provides exceptional performance in a space efficient design. • The new PaxPower FP X-ray tube, which is optimized for interventional procedures and portable surgical CT systems. The new tube platforms were developed with a smaller footprint and higher power. It provides a dramatically smaller and lighter package with higher heat dissipation allowing for higher patient throughput.• The new PaxScan 3024M flat panel detector designed for full field digital mammography. The compact design, incorporating a narrow edge and rapid image-acquisition capabilities, enables radiologists to acquire images close to the chest wall with results in seconds. This architecture is based on amorphous silicon (a-Si) design allowing rapid frame rates for advanced mammographic applications. • The new PaxScan 4336R “hot swap” technology, which allows the radiographic panel to be unplugged and plugged back in without having to reboot the system. This feature easily moves the panel from the X-ray table to a chest stand without interrupting workflow, allowing radiologists to use one panel per room or one panel across multiple rooms, lowering system costs.For more information: www.varian.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Walkaround AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:25Loaded: 11.42%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:25 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Carter Center says it wont witness Venezuela vote

first_img How do cataracts affect your vision? Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Comments   Share   “For the international community, the difficulty comes if there are competing interpretations of what happened … if different parties within the countries do not agree on the results,” McCoy said. “Then it’s just more difficult for the international community to know how to react.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) The Carter Center said in a statement that the council invited it to “form an intermediate option” and send a small group of experts to join in pre-election audits and be present on voting day. But the organization said it received the invitation too late “to evaluate it and organize the necessary experts and financing.”“My understanding is that the (electoral council) has come to the conclusion that they no longer need international observation to give confidence to the process,” said Jennifer McCoy, director of the center’s Americas program. “Since 2006 they’ve been in consultation with the political parties to establish a number of security mechanisms and audits with the participation of the political parties to give confidence to the process.”McCoy said in a telephone interview that Venezuelan domestic observer groups, political parties and voters themselves will have a number of ways to participate in monitoring the vote.President Hugo Chavez is seeking another six-year term in the election, and is facing a challenge from opposition leader Henrique Capriles.Venezuela isn’t alone in Latin America in not hosting full international observer missions.

Puerto Rico Tourism Company introduces new quality service programme

first_imgThe Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC) launched the celebration of the International Tourism Month with the presentation of its ‘Quality Service Programme’, which is a key aspect of Executive Director, Ingrid I Rivera Rocafort’s strategic plan for the agency. The programme comprises several elements which make a difference in the reputation of a destination, such as cleanliness, how guests are treated, ability to satisfy guests’ needs and solving unexpected situations.“From day one as Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, I told myself that one of the main pillars of my work here would be enhancing the quality of our service through a programme that would include all of our citizens in order to make a real difference in the experience lived by our guests, and today I can say with great pleasure that this programme is ready for implementation,” said Rivera Rocafort.The Executive Director added, “Puerto Rico has great attributes: spectacular natural landscapes, impressive historical monuments and a rich cultural heritage, but there is no doubt that our best attribute is our people, who are widely known for their warmth and hospitality. Nonetheless, it is necessary to translate this attribute in a more effective manner and with our Quality Service Programme we aim to provide our people better tools in order to take hospitality to the next level and encourage the arrival of more visitors.”To develop the programme, the PRTC team launched a comprehensive research process in order to determine the areas in which to be implemented, in addition to the strategies to be followed to achieve success in this important project. Based on the data collected through interviews, focus groups and research, PRTC’s Quality Service Programme focuses on three main aspects: awareness, training, and recognition.The awareness phase is intended to strengthen the service capabilities at both the internal and external levels. The first step would be to bolster the capabilities of the agency’s team to enhance the quality of the services they provide to clients, partners and guests and at the same time, to serve as spokespeople of the programme amongst citizens. In addition, PRTC is working in partnership with the Department of Education to provide a series of workshops during the 2015-2016 school year, along with a summer camp which educates students interested in working in the tourism industry about the importance of quality service.In order to move the community and the industry towards the goal of enhancing local tourism’s quality service, PRTC has developed a media campaign, which includes press advertisements on radio, TV and social media that will highlight examples of how to be ambassadors of quality service to visitors.The training phase includes initiatives to promote excellence in service and would begin with a series of workshops for employees and management teams of government agencies and would continue with training opportunities for restaurant staff, hotel owners and operators to provide them the tools needed to reach a quality excellence level that will boost new visits in the near future.The third phase augments the importance of recognition and will include the relaunching of PRTC’s Quality Awards with a new logo, new categories and regional awards. PRTC’s personnel will also be recognised in this phase. All these strategies will run under the “It’s Our Time to Shine!” slogan.last_img read more
