Seaga

The Most Honourable Edward Seaga, ON, PC

The University of Technology, Jamaica notes with profound regret, the passing of former Prime Minister, the Most Honourable Edward Seaga, earlier today.

Mr Seaga has served as a distinguished Chancellor of our University from 2010 to the present. During this period, he was a major source of inspiration and a guide to the leadership of the University. He was instrumental in annual meetings of the University and lent his wealth of experience and expertise to all aspects of the University’s work. He was also Pro-Chancellor at UTech, Ja. between 2008 and 2010.

Edward Seaga was a pioneer in all aspects of Jamaican life. At the University, we recall his most recent public appearance in our community. This was Mr Seaga’s Distinguished Public Lecture in commemoration of the University’s 60th Anniversary. That lecture, which was concerned with the “Origins and Development of Jamaican Music” saw Mr Seaga at his spellbinding best. He reminded us of his outstanding oratorical skills, his deep love of Jamaica and Jamaicans, and of his extensive knowledge of Jamaican cultural and religious practices.

Four third-year students from the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) School of Hospitality and Tourism Management are this year’s recipients of the Jamaica Observer Table Talk Food Awards scholarship.

Based on academic accomplishments and financial need, Venice McFarquhar, Ilsaya Kerr, Kaleisha Thompson and Johansen Gordon were the four students shortlisted to be awarded full scholarships. Tuition fees coupled with book grants and other much-needed supplies put the value of each scholarship at approximately $450,000. The outstanding quartet made indelible impressions on the judging panel as they shared their passion for the culinary arts, their personal challenges and how they overcame them.

The judging panel, headed by Observer Managing Director Julian Rogers and Jamaica Observer Table Talk Food Awards conceptualiser Novia McDonald-Whyte, was very pleased with the calibre of the shortlisted students. The panel also consisted of UTech Director of Student Financing Garcia Green-McLennon, Scholarship Officer Pauline Madourie and Food and Service Management Programme Director Camille Jackson.

Teflon Tufton – Minister Number One – Martin Henry May 16, 2019

Posted by utechalumni in UTech News.

add a comment

How the public make up their minds about these things we never get to know, but in the most recent RJRGLEANER Communications Group polls, conducted by pollster Don Anderson, Christopher Tufton was adjudged the best-performing Cabinet minister. Tufton, minister of health, had a 24 per cent rating as best-performing minister, more than twice the nearest two others at 11 per cent.

The health sector doesn’t generate jobs and more jobs, it doesn’t run major infrastructural development pride projects, it doesn’t spend a lot of feel-good money, and the majority of citizens do not directly interact with it on a day-to-day basis unless they get sick. So it has to be something else why Dr Tufton is outpacing his Cabinet colleagues in the popularity race.


The health sector has not been exactly short of its own big, bad news. The news story reporting Dr Tufton’s lead started out by saying, “Despite facing strong criticism for his handling of the issues at the Cornwall Regional Hospital and the [2018] dengue outbreak … Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton has topped the list of best-performing Cabinet ministers.”

While the 36,315 enumerated voters in Portland Eastern were enduring the campaigning for their votes and deciding who to vote for from two mostly indistinguishable political parties, as far as policies, plans and programmes are concerned, or not to vote at all, I signed a petition.

Voting is only one element of a citizen’s political engagement in a democracy. And it may not even be the most important one. The overwhelming majority of the 53.5 per cent who marked their X have gone back home to endure the non-fulfillment of campaign promises, to remain disengaged from their parliamentary representative, and to patiently wait for the next election, merely “voters”.

The University of Technology, Jamaica Academic Staff Union (UTASU) joins the debate about the viability of the national university and the unique and vital contribution it must make if Jamaicans from all walks of life are to be empowered with skills to excel in the 21st century and create the nation we all deserve and desire.

Inflow

Much has been achieved in the past, but the university must be properly funded and resourced to continue to excel in teaching, service and research. A major issue which hampers the university’s ability to better serve the needs of its main stakeholders — students — is the annual per capita subvention from the Government of Jamaica.
