Primary School Pupils set to Impress During ‘Kids Takeover Day’

first_imgWe’re passionate about including children and teenagers at Castle Kennedy Gardens. The Kids Takeover Day helps young people look after the general public and is just one way we can work more closely with the local community. We’re keen to become a community resource and offer the children an opportunity to get involved and to have responsibility for running a business such as this, hopefully inspiring them and providing them with an introduction to these kind of positions.” Other pupils will take over the Shop Manager role where they will be responsible for setting up the till and cashing up at the end of the day, welcoming visitors, managing stock items and displaying goods as well as watering plants in the plant centre. Lady Stair of Stair Estates, said;“It’s wonderful the children at Castle Kennedy School are looking forward to the day so much which we hope they will enjoy. This is the second time we have organised Kids Takeover Day and it will be exciting to hear about their experiences and read their reports afterwards. Those with a passion for food and drink will take on the role of Tearoom Assistant, taking customer orders, preparing food, washing up and keeping the Tearoom tidy with lots of helpful advice from permanent staff member Jane Stanistreet.

Dance in the Mood back in form

first_imgDia de la Novia finished fourth, favorite Rhein Kraft failed to perform, ending in ninth place. Last month, Dance in the Mood, winless since spring ’04, went to the gate for the first time in nearly six months and finished with a respectable second place. With that race promising better times ahead at last, the fans booted her up to second pick for the Victoria behind Rhein Kraft and ahead of third choice Air Messiah. Difficult as a filly, strong-willed and insistent on running at her own pace (or not at all), jockey Hiroshi Kitamura said it was truly all about mood with the aptly named mare. “She’s been in good condition all along but the sticking point has been whether you can control her mood,” he said. Kitamura kept Dance on the rail about four back until late in the stretch. “Moving her out too soon might get her upset, so I was just concentrating on waiting as long as I could.” The 25-year-old Kitamura decided to move with about 300 meters to go, slipped neatly through an opening and took the lead with 150 left. It was the jockey’s first G1 win in eight years of riding. Dance, who rocketed to the top with four straight wins from her debut back in 2003, had failed to find the winner’s circle since April 2004 and her win of the Okasho (Japan’s 1,000 Guineas). She had come close though, with a disappointing second-place in the American Oaks at Hollywood Park in July 2004. Since then, however, trainer Kazuo Fujisawa, himself without a G1 win since December ’04, said they had nearly given up on the striking Sunday Silence-sired black mare. A rest from last November, however, proved to be just what she needed. Dance in the Mood, out of the Nijinsky mare, Dancing Key, was bred at Shadai Farm and runs under the Shadai colors. She clocked 1 minute, 34.0 seconds over slightly yielding turf. IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMEScenter_img It was a long time coming, but Dance in the Mood finally found her feet again, capturing the Mother’s Day inaugural Victoria Mile at Tokyo Sunday by a length and a quarter over Air Messiah. Dance in the Mood (right) holds off a late charge by Air Messiah to win theVictoria Mile on Sunday at Tokyo Racecourse.last_img read more

SAP inclusion in Bayanihan 2 gets extra push

first_imgSIGN UP TO DAILY NEWSLETTERCLICK HERE TO SIGN-UP The chairperson of the House Committee on Social Services on Wednesday (Sept. 16) rallied behind the call of her colleagues to include the funding allocation for the cash subsidies for low-income households in the proposed P4.506-trillion national budget for 2021.MANILA BULLETIN FILE PHOTOLa Union 2nd district Rep. Sandra Eriguel agreed with Negros Oriental 2nd District Rep. Manuel Sagarbarria and Surigao del Norte 2nd District Rep. Robert Ace Barbers that a Social Amelioration Provision (SAP) funding provision should be included in the next year’s national appropriations.“Although the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has allotted for Promotive Social Welfare Program, including 4Ps (Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program) in its proposed budget for 2021, nonetheless, I support the call of several Members of Congress to include in DSWD’s 2021 budget an allocation for cash subsidy similar to the SAP under the “Bayanihan to Heal As One Act” or R.A. 11469 or popularly known as “Bayanihan 1,” she told the Manila Bulletin.She said despite the inclusion of similar subsidy program in the newly-enacted Republic Act No. 11494 or the “Bayanihan to Recover as One Act”, known as Bayanihan 2, it would be sensible if a SAP funding provision is reflected in the 2021 national budget, considering the socio-economic uncertainties posed by the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.“It would be judicious to earmark an appropriation for emergency subsidy in DSWD’s 2021 Budget in view of the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic in the coming year,” Eriguel, a medical doctor by profession, said.The House leader noted that RA No. 11494 authorizes the President to implement various recovery interventions, including the provision of similar emergency subsidy worth P5,000 to P8,000 to affected low income households in areas under “granular lockdowns” or restrictions limited to specific area like a street or compound, and to households with recently-returned OFWs.Bayanihan 2 also provides for P6 Billion for DSWD’s Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situations (AICS), she noted.Sagarbarria, chairman of the House Special Committee on West Philippine Sea, had proposed that “SAP should continue and be included in the proposed national budget, but it must be in-kind, like giving rice to poor families.”For his part, Barbers, chairperson of the House Committee on Dangerous Drugs, agreed that SAP should be included in the national spending plan, recognizing that the pandemic crisis would produce more poor families.“If there’s no vaccine in sight until next year, we should continue to roll out financial assistance to low income families next year,” he said in a text message.Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon vowed over the weekend to push for the inclusion of SAP in the proposed national budget for next year.Under the already-lapsed Republic Act NO. 11469 or the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, around 18 million low-income families are entitled to receive a P5,000 to P8,000 emergency cash subsidy for two months depending on the minimum wage rate in their regions.In a congressional budget briefing, Budget Secretary Wendel Avisado told the senators that the national government is more focused on improving the economic landscape and creating jobs for economically-dislocated families.last_img read more

Knight Riders cruise into the IPL play-offs

first_imgKOLKATA Knight Riders (KKR) qualified for the Indian Premier League (IPL) play-offs with a five-wicket win over the fading Sunrisers Hyderabad.Chris Lynn top-scored with 55 and Robin Uthappa contributed 45 as the Knight Riders overhauled Hyderabad’s total of 172-9 with two balls to spare.Prasidh Krishna had earlier claimed 4-30 for a Kolkata side that appears to be peaking at the right time after securing a third straight victory.In contrast, the previously impressive Sunrisers are losing form as the round-robin stage draws to a close.Kane Williamson’s side have now lost three on the spin and while still on top of the table for now, they could possibly be knocked off the summit if second-placed Chennai Super Kings defeat Kings XI Punjab today.Hyderabad looked in a position to post a score around 200 when they reached 127-1 with Shikhar Dhawan (50) and Williamson at the crease.Yet the loss of their captain, who made 36 off just 17 deliveries, sparked a batting collapse. They lost five wickets for 11 runs in the final two overs, including three in a row to finish the innings.Manish Pandey weighed in with 25 but, presented with the perfect platform to launch a late onslaught, the rest of the middle order fluffed their lines.Krishna completed his four-wicket haul by dismissing Shakib Al Hasan and Rashid Khan with successive deliveries in the 20th over and while he was denied a hat-trick from the last ball of the innings, Bhuvneshwar Kumar was run-out trying to pinch a single.Boosted by their fine finish with the ball, the Knight Riders broke the back of their run chase thanks to their two openers.Australian Lynn was happy to play second fiddle early on, as Sunil Narine took centre stage in their partnership of 52, the left-hander launching two sixes as he made 29 in a hurry.Uthappa then helped add 67 for the second wicket and while both he and Lynn perished before the end, skipper Dinesh Karthik – who finished up unbeaten on 26 – steered his team home.They rather fell over the finish line though, losing the wicket of Nitish Rana when the scores were level, but still picked up the two points they required to become the third franchise to book a spot in the knockout stages.last_img read more
