Labour Market Information System Upgraded

first_img The LMIS, which is a one-stop data and information website, is designed to satisfy the needs of job seekers and employers. LMIS has been upgraded to make it more user-friendly to both employers and job seekers. Story Highlights The upgrade is aimed at providing more information on employment opportunities to jobseekers, and enabling employers to choose from a variety of qualified personnel. The Ministry of Labour and Social Security (MLSS) has upgraded its Labour Market Information System (LMIS), making it more user-friendly to both employers and job seekers.The LMIS, which is a one-stop data and information source, is designed to satisfy the needs of job seekers and employers, through its newly improved website, www.lmis.gov.jm, or the Ministry’s website, www.mlss.gov.jm.Since its inception in 2001, the system, which is maintained by the MLSS, has been providing cost effective ways for employers to source and recruit suitable employees, as well  as for job seekers to post resumes for possible employment.Acting Director of Research and Analysis at the Ministry, Simone McKenzie, informed JIS News that the upgrading of the manpower management tool, as it is also called, is aimed at providing more information on employment opportunities to jobseekers, and enabling employers to choose from a variety of qualified personnel.“The upgraded system provides sufficient information on various types of employment, and guidance to prospective employers regarding best practice techniques, when seeking jobs. It also provides information on areas where there is a skills shortage. With the upgrading of the system, we want to ensure that persons experiencing difficulties acquiring jobs are directed to other partners, so that they can improve their literacy and numeracy skills, for likely employment,” she said.Ms. McKenzie informed JIS News that the system has three components – the Electronic Labour Exchange (ELE), Skills Bank, and the Labour Market Intelligence.The ELE, which is the core component of the LMIS, facilitates the matching of job seekers with employers, and provides both online and offline services to both parties.The online services include: tips on resume writing, preparing for interview, job search and career counselling. The offline services include: assisting employers to post jobs, interview and shortlist candidates. The second component is the Skills Bank, which is a database of certified Jamaicans, with varying skills.“Qualified persons with the required competencies are encouraged to register on-line, so in the event a job vacancy that matches their skill arises, they can be contacted,” she says.The Labour Market Intelligence is the third component. This is a combination of current and historical data on the local economy, population and labour market and also includes information on training opportunities for the youth, sources of funding for education, the most frequently advertised jobs, and summaries of labour market research conducted by MLSS.Ms. McKenzie says that there are a lot of skill areas in demand, as well as persons seeking jobs, hence the need for the upgrading of the LMIS.“From our latest studies, some of the jobs that are in demand are mainly in the health tourism sector, restaurant, and education; for example, chefs, water divers, solar technicians, science, mathematics, and foreign language educators,” Ms. McKenzie discloses.She points out that with this information, for the next financial year, 2014/15, the Ministry hopes to see an increase in the level of employment, since job seekers are more aware of the skills that are in demand and the opportunities available for training. She is also encouraging both job seekers and employers to utilize the LMIS, as the services are free of cost.Ms. McKenzie advises that for job seekers who are not technologically inclined, or do not have internet access, they can visit the Ministry at its North Street offices in Kingston, and assistance will also be provided, free of charge.“One reason why we are not charging persons to use the system is because the information that we provide, we want it to be extended locally, regionally and internationally, because it is web based,” she notes.Ms. McKenzie further informs that persons with special needs have also been taken into consideration, because often times they are not hired because of their disability, despite being skilled in various areas.“We at the Ministry believe in effective social inclusion. Whether a person is disabled, or able-bodied, they must be given equal opportunities to reach their fullest potential,” she says.In addition to the websites, persons can also visit the LMIS Facebook page at www.facebook.com/page/Jamaica Labour Market Information System, for more information.last_img read more

Toshiba CEO promises turnaround in 5 years beefed up ethics

first_imgTOKYO – Nobuaki Kurumatani, the outsider tapped to lead scandal-tarnished Japanese electronics company Toshiba Corp., is promising a turnaround in five years by reshaping its operations and boosting profitability.Kurumatani, the first outsider to be appointed chief executive at Toshiba in more than half a century, acknowledged the system of governance and risk management had been weak. He stressed he brought to the company his experience in the financial sector, where compliance controls were tougher.Toshiba has been embroiled in an accounting scandal involving massive doctoring of books.“I feel that the organization is determined to change,” Kurumatani told reporters Tuesday at Toshiba’s Tokyo headquarters.Toshiba has also racked up heavy losses in its nuclear business and is selling its lucrative computer-chip business to avoid going belly-up.At the centre of the losses is the acquisition of CB&I Stone & Webster by its U.S. nuclear unit Westinghouse, which filed for bankruptcy protection last year.Kurumatani said the company will withdraw from all overseas nuclear operations, and the future of the energy business is moving toward renewables.Costs of building nuclear reactors have surged due to beefed-up safety measures after a March 2011 accident at a plant in Fukushima in northeastern Japan sent three reactors into meltdowns.“Toshiba has many dedicated employees and talented engineers,” Kurumutani said. “Things go well when things are good. But once things start going wrong, then it keeps going wrong.”Toshiba’s chairman stepped down last year, but veteran Satoshi Tsunakwa has stayed on as president and chief operating officer and will be working with Kurumatani toward a turnaround.Kurumatani’s rise is an effort by Toshiba to put on a fresh face to a long-pristine brand that has plunged from grace not only over the Westinghouse fiasco but also because of spiraling accounting scandals that raised serious questions about its ethical practices.Efforts to reform corporate governance turned up more embarrassing wrongdoing, which dated back years.A graduate of the prestigious University of Tokyo, Kurumatani most recently served as president of CVC Asia Pacific Japan, an investment fund.Before that, he was deputy president and a director at Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group, one of Japan’s biggest banking institutions and a major Toshiba lender.Unlike previous Toshiba executives with backgrounds in engineering, Kurumatani built his career in corporate planning, public relations and auditing.Toshiba has been gradually selling off pieces of its operations, such as its medical equipment and household appliance businesses.But the key sale is its prized flash memory chip business to a consortium led by Bain Capital Private Equity. That sale was initially set to be completed in March but is ongoing, awaiting regulatory approval in China, according to Kurumatani.Toshiba has reached a settlement with American computer data storage giant Western Digital, its joint venture partner, which had initially fought the sale.Toshiba still has a sprawling infrastructure business, such as railways, power systems and factory automation. It’s still responsible for running and decommissioning dozens of nuclear reactors in Japan, including those at the Fukushima plant.Toshiba is forecasting a profit for the fiscal year that ended in March, a reversal from the red ink it had expected earlier. It racked up a loss for the previous fiscal year.___Follow Yuri Kageyama on Twitter at https://twitter.com/yurikageyamaHer work can be found at https://www.apnews.com/search/yuri%20kageyamalast_img read more

It said a strict vigil in the skies to detect and thwart any act of aggression from Pakistan Air Force is being maintained. Officials said all the frontline IAF bases along India’s western border have been kept on maximum alert. Tensions between the two countries escalated after Indian fighters bombed terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed’s biggest training camp near Balakot deep inside Pakistan on February 26. Pakistan retaliated by attempting to target Indian military installations on February 27. However, the IAF thwarted their plans. The Indian strike on the JeM camp came 12 days after the terror outfit claimed responsibility for a suicide attack on a CRPF convoy in Kashmir, killing 40 soldiers.last_img read more

Dwyane Wade ExWife Arrested Over Custody Dispute

In happier times, Dwayne and Siohvaughn Wade.Wade Wife Arrested – The Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade has asked a Chicago judge to suspend his ex-wife’s right to visitation with their two children after a weekend incident that delayed the boys’ return to his custody and led to her arrest.Wade’s attorney, James Pritikin, filed an emergency motion and appeared in court Tuesday to have it heard, hours before the Heat guard was to play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder.A hearing was set for June 26, which would be the date of Game 7 if the Heat and Thunder extend the series to its limit.Wade told The Associated Press that his sons have been with him in Miami since about 6 a.m. Sunday — “That’s what mattered most to me, getting them here to be with me on Father’s Day,” he said — and that the incident has not adversely affected his play in the championship series.Siohvaughn Funches-Wade was charged with two counts of attempted child abduction, two counts of unlawful visitation interference and one count of resisting arrest, Cook County Sheriff’s spokesman Frank Bilecki told The AP on Tuesday. Another woman at the home at the time, Nadgee Alarcon, was charged with one count of resisting arrest, Bilecki said. All the charges are misdemeanors.Funches-Wade posted $10,000 bond on Monday, Bilecki said, and is due back in court in August. It was not known if she had an attorney.“Once again, S.L. has used our minor children as the proverbial pawns in this contentious dissolution of marriage action,” Wade wrote in the filing, using initials to protect identities but referring to his ex-wife. “This court must take action to protect our minor children from further exposure to the present environment S.L. creates while they are in her care and preventing S.L. from exercising her parenting time in a manner that is harmful to our children.”The couple was divorced in 2010. Wade was awarded custody of the boys in March 2011. His ex-wife’s appeal of that decision was denied in December, and the couple is scheduled to return to court in September in an attempt to complete financial terms of the divorce.“The minor children have been subjected to great deal of drama/trauma as a result of S.L.’s conduct,” the filing said.Dwyane Wade has asked a Chicago judge to suspend his ex-wife’s right to visitation with their two children after a weekend incident that delayed the boys’ return to his custody and led to her arrest.According to the filing, the two boys were to be picked up by Wade’s sister around noon Saturday so they could make a 3:05 p.m. flight from Chicago to Miami so they could be in South Florida for the entirety of Father’s Day.Wade’s sister got no response at the home, and after “several hours,” the sheriff’s office was called to send someone to the scene, according to the filing. It also said Funches-Wade attempted to leave the home without the children when one of the responding deputies tried taking her into custody. The boys, at that time, were with Alarcon inside the home, according to the filing.Wade eventually hired a private jet to bring his sons home early Sunday, and upon their arrival, his older son told him that Alarcon “smacked him on the head,” according to court records.Records show Funches-Wade was transferred to a hospital after the incident on Saturday. She told officers she was experiencing shortness of breath and thought she was having an asthma attack.Wade recently finished writing a book primarily about fatherhood and the custody fight for his sons. It will be released Sept. 4. read more

Buckeyes move to 230 behind Sullingers 10th doubledouble

Michigan arrived in Columbus not the least bit intimidated by the No. 1-ranked, undefeated Ohio State men’s basketball team. The Wolverines stood toe-to-toe with the Buckeyes for most of the game Thursday night, but despite trailing at halftime, OSU showed exactly how it’s managed the second-best start in program history. “Ohio State is really good,” Wolverine coach John Beilein said. “There’s a reason they’re undefeated.” On the shoulders of freshman Jared Sullinger’s 10th double-double of the season, OSU (23-0, 10-0 Big Ten) bested unranked but feisty Michigan (13-10, 3-7 Big Ten), 62-53. Sullinger played all 40 minutes, scoring 19 points and grabbing 15 rebounds to lead the Buckeyes to victory. OSU jumped out to a quick lead, beginning the game with a 7-0 run, but the Wolverines were in no mood to let the Buckeyes blow them out early. A 3-pointer from junior guard Zack Novak tied the game at 14-14 with 11:39 to go in the first half. Four minutes later, a jumper from junior guard Stu Douglass gave the Wolverines their first lead, 20-19. The Buckeyes regained the lead, but back-to-back Michigan buckets to close the half put OSU down, 26-23, at the break. It was just the fourth time all season the Buckeyes have been trailing at halftime, and they entered the locker room with 10 turnovers and shooting just 36 percent from the field. “That’s not Ohio State basketball,” freshman point guard Aaron Craft said of the Buckeyes’ offensive struggles in the first 20 minutes. “That’s not what we’ve been doing all year to get us in the position we’re at.” A basket from redshirt freshman forward Jordan Morgan gave the Wolverines a 30-24 lead early in the second half, but two 3-pointers from junior guard William Buford tied the game, 30-30, and ignited the sellout crowd at the Schottenstein Center. With his first points of the game, senior forward David Lighty gave the Buckeyes a two-point lead with just less than 14 minutes remaining. The Wolverines quickly tied it, but a 7-0 Buckeye run, capped with a Lighty free throw, gave OSU a 44-36 lead with 9:37 to go. Again, however, Michigan answered. Back-to-back 3-pointers from freshmen Evan Smotrycz and Tim Hardaway Jr. cut the Buckeye lead to two. But Sullinger’s eight points over the next five minutes fueled a 10-3 OSU run that gave the Buckeyes a 54-45 lead, their largest of the game to that point, with less than three minutes remaining. “In the second half we took our intensity to another level,” Sullinger said. “We know it’s Michigan, and we know they’re going to give us their best shot. On top of that it’s a rivalry, so we just had to take it to another level.” After struggling through the first half, OSU shot 54 percent from the field in the second, and ended the game on an 18-9 run to earn the nine-point victory. Buford finished with 13 points, including three 3-pointers. Lighty and senior guard Jon Diebler added nine points apiece. The win, despite the seemingly comfortable margin of victory, was yet another game that perhaps could have gone either way down the stretch. The close games, Buford said, are simply what comes with a No. 1 ranking and will only help the Buckeyes in the long run. “We know every team is going to come after us,” Buford said. “We’re the No. 1 team in the country. They’re giving us their best shot, and we’re taking people’s best punches right now so when we get to the tournament we’ll be prepared.” OSU coach Thad Matta is happy as long as his team keeps winning, regardless of how close the games are. “It’s amazing, and I keep saying this just looking across college basketball,” Matta said. “There are great players, there are great coaches and to be sitting here today 23-0 and 10-0 in the Big Ten is something else.” The Buckeyes travel to Minneapolis to play No. 18 Minnesota at 2 p.m. Sunday. read more

Governor Walker Talks Optimism In State Of The State Address

first_imgOne of the Governor’s other key priorities this year is to permanently change the way work is done in the Capitol by enacting his proposed budgetary reforms and transparency measures – including his legislation that would enact pay freezes if they ever push the state to the brink of a government shutdown again. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Governor Bill Walker, gave his fourth State of the State Address, on Thursday evening. During the address Governor Walker called on lawmakers to enable Alaska to control its own destiny by resolving our fiscal challenges during the legislative session that is now currently under way. Walker: “We make nothing on oil discovered but left in the ground. Access and production are key. We are now working to develop toll roads so exploration can take place 12 months a year rather than just in the winter months.” This year, the state saw the highest dollar bids on North Slope lease sales in over 20 years. Governor Walker also highlighted some highlights for the upcoming year including the AK LNG project. The State leads the project for the first time, and the Joint Development Agreement – signed with the presidents of the U.S. and China at the table – puts the project the closest to reality it’s ever been. Governor Walker: “Even with the challenges ahead, I remain the eternal optimist, and there is good reason for optimism. We have all the tools to control our own destiny and build a safer, smarter, stronger Alaska.” According to Walker one key primary focus of the legislature this year is to provide the infrastructure to develop our resources. “This is the customary role of government.” Governor Walker: “Passing a budget on time is not complicated. Other states do it on time. So can we.” Story as aired: Audio PlayerJennifer-on-State-of-the-state.mp3VmJennifer-on-State-of-the-state.mp300:00RPdlast_img read more

Managing During a Time of Upheaval

first_imgDuring his keynote, Rossi pointed to two overriding trends, one negative and one that holds out hope: The negative trend is the massive decline in magazine advertising over the last decade. The less troubling trend is that print magazine circulation, according to MPA and other sources, appears to have remained flat throughout the Internet revolution.For Rossi, the biggest item on agendas now is e-readers, which he described as a “substitution” product for print magazines. “There is a real challenge here for all of us,” he said. In the case of The Economist, Rossi said, e-readers are actually bringing people to the brand. “The vast majority of people buying [Economist-related] Kindle products are either lapsed Economist readers or new customers,” he said.Key TakeawaysMeanwhile, on day two of the conference, IdeAlliance had what amounted to a five-hour intervention session for attendees entitled, “Managing in a Time of Upheaval.” The point, association CEO David Steinhardt said, was to initiate a “reengagement, a new conversation, with the industry. There is a great deal of fear.” The brainstorming session was intended to force a new look at the dynamics of the supply chain. “The supply chain is changing, and the structure has not kept up,” he said. “We wanted to pause and reflect on what the key directions are that we want to move the supply chain.”Steinhardt said there were five key takeaways, which the association will take back and work on, with plans to issue a report at next year’s conference:•    The need in the market for an improved image campaign around the value of print media.•    The need to redefine the print supply chain as the media supply chain.•    The need to continue to drive costs and inefficiencies out of the chain.•    Training. Downsizing has resulted in a massive amount of expertise leaving the system. This has to be corrected.•    Development of multichannel workflows.The session, Steinhardt said, did its job. “It was phenomenal,” he said. “We also asked this group to look at association improvement—and encourage associations to make some choices about what they do.”One participant, Ed Sheehan, executive vice president of sales for World Color, approved of the session. “It was useful,” he said. “There is a sense of panic in the industry, but people have gotten to the point where they’re okay being candid with each other. There is also a sense of trust. This kind of got it out into the open.” CLEARWATER BEACH, FLORIDA—The 2010 Primex Conference, which serves the print-media supply chain, began Monday in what some attendees were describing as a wave of pervasive fear in the industry.The supply chain—which includes publishers, printers, paper companies, mailers, ad agencies and technology companies—is facing its toughest period ever, as audiences and advertisers migrate to digital media and the media industry is buckling from the effects of a deep recession. The meeting convened as two of the industry’s largest players, World Color Press and Quad Graphics, were gearing up to merge sometime this year in an acquisition of World Color by Quad. Kicking off the event—which is sponsored by the leading association for the print-publishingmanufacturing industry, IDEAlliance—was a keynote address from Paul Rossi, managing director of The Economist Group. The Economist has generally bucked the trend in print magazines, expanding its circulation dramatically in the last few years and maintaining a relatively high subscription price. last_img read more
