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…)

UTech Jamaica: Government in Danger of Botching NIDS by Prof. Paul Golding, Dean, COBAM November 29, 2017

Posted by utechalumni in UTech News.
add a comment

Politically , the Andrew Holness-led Government is making a real hash of the implementation of the national identification system (NIDS). A cursory review of the countries that have implemented NIDS indicates that there are some common concerns that citizens have prior to implementation. They include exactly what Jamaicans are concerned about: the potential threat to civil liberty, lack of confidence in the reliability and safety of the system, and a belief that they are quite simply unnecessary and irrelevant. Armed with this knowledge, good management and good politics suggest that the Government seeks to allay these real fears prior to implementation.

To exacerbate the situation, the actions in Parliament to push through this Bill, and the apparent waffling by the prime minister, create more fear — which the Opposition is likely to use to galvanise citizens against the NIDS. Jamaicans have strong cultural and religious objections to what is required in the NIDS, which are real, but generally unfounded. (more…)

UTech Jamaica: Taking justice reform to the next level, Article by Henry Lewis, Lecturer, FELS November 29, 2017

Posted by utechalumni in UTech News.
add a comment

The judiciary is one of the most important arms of government. Its chief mission is to resolve disputes in a just and timely manner to protect the rights and liberties of not some or those who can afford it, but of all, thereby facilitating the attainment of the rule of law. It performs this function by providing independent, non-political, accessible, and responsive fora for the resolution of matters of law.

I am not a lawyer nor am I a legal luminary, I am a behavioural scientist who has a deep interest in the well-being of nations and justice that has a direct link to well-being. I have been observing the Jamaican judiciary for the past 20 years, and I have concluded that Jamaican governments past and present have failed the Jamaican people. (more…)
