Mount Olivet Boys’ Home Embarking On Herbal Teas Project

Published:Tuesday | April 17, 2018 | 12:00 AM

The Mount Olivet Boys’ Home is poised to establish a herb farm, following the donation of plants and a proposal for purchase of the harvest by local tea manufacturer, Perishables Jamaica Limited (PJL).

“We’re planting the seed and will watch it grow, and reap and create a good herb farm that we can build a long-term business relationship from. We do this on an ongoing basis across Jamaica,” PJL managing director, Norman Wright, said.

Wright, who handed over rosemary and peppermint plants to the Home recently, was upbeat about the prospects of the project and informed that the company buys herbs from farmers, and “based on our knowledge of the environment here at Mount Olivet, they will prosper here”.

Major Alicia Cooper – Challenge accepted

BY KIMBERLEY HIBBERT
Jamaica Observer, Monday, April 16, 2018

 

MAJOR Alicia Cooper is committed to positively shaping the lives of youngsters and Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) recruits through her role as the first female detachment commander in the history of the JDF.

But this God-centred, family-oriented and hard-working woman did not always have an interest in the army; in fact, she told All Woman that she aspired to be a chef and took to cooking [as much as she could] as she thought it would prepare her for a culinary career. (more…)

The presentation was made on Thursday, March 8, 2018 at the offices of the Ministry in Kingston.  The Universal Service Fund (USF) donation will support the UTech, Jamaica IEEE student hardware team to acquire electronic parts for their final designs of a new intelligent software controlled robot for the hardware competition.  The prototype will be entered in the Hardware Competition at the annual Institute of IEEE Southeast Regional 3 Conference scheduled for April 19 – 22, 2018 in St Petersburg, Florida, USA where they will compete with other USA based universities.

 

Dr. the Hon. Andrew Wheatley, MP, Minister of Science, Energy and Technology in presenting the  donation to the UTech, Jamaica team, opined that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an area of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) that need greater and deliberate emphasis within schools’ curriculum, given the ability of AI to be a game changer in our daily lives.  Dr. Wheatley said that he was encouraged by UTech, Jamaica’s participation in this type of transformational STEM initiative and was happy that the USF could provide support to the students.

 

Dr Sean Thorpe, Head, School of Computing and Information Technology who was instrumental in lobbying for funding support for the students to complete their prototype, said that “the University is grateful to the USF for their show of support for the students to attend this year’s IEEE competition.”    He noted that, “the financial aid is timely and will go a far way in assisting with the final incremental designs and programming of the live robot prototype.”  Dr. Thorpe expressed appreciation to members of staff in both the School of Engineering and the School of Computing and Information Technology for their support in preparing the students for competition.

 

The 10 member UTech, Jamaica student delegation will be led by Mr. Aygei Masters who has been working assiduously to ready the hardware team for the upcoming IEEE competition.   In addition to the Hardware competition, the UTech, Jamaica student team is also expected to participate in the Software Programming, T-Shirt Design, Website Design and Engineering Ethics competitions.

 

The annual IEEE Region 3 brings together Computer Scientists, Electrical and Computer Engineering professionals, faculty and students to share the latest information through technical sessions, tutorials, and exhibits.  It is the most influential conference in Region 3 for promoting awareness of the technical contributions made by the profession to the advancement of engineering science and to the community.
