Speaking at the launch of the clean-up day at the St. Jago Park Health Centre in the parish on Wednesday (February 18), Acting Chief Medical Officer (CMO) in the Ministry of Health, Dr. Winston De La Haye, underscored the importance of personal responsibility in preventing mosquito breeding. “This isn’t an issue that the Ministry of Health alone can solve. It is the responsibility of each individual to identify sites where water settles and get rid of it. Remember that a drop of water is enough for the mosquito to breed in. We need to punch holes in cans and get rid of all of the bulk waste that is unnecessary and can potentially collect water,” he said. He informed that similar activities will take place in other parishes, and highlighted the importance of communities undertaking clean-up exercises.“This isn’t a one-day event. We are starting with areas in Spanish Town and Portmore and we are encouraging all Jamaica to come on board. We are expecting that after Saturday persons will be active in their communities and in their homes destroying breeding sites,” he said.The team, which includes Ministry of Health personnel, vector control workers, stakeholders and partners, will meet at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday at Portmore Pines Plaza from where persons will be deployed to the two Portmore communities. The group will move into the Rivoli community at about 1:00 p.m.Other partners in the clean-up effort include the Ministries of Education and Local Government and Community Development; and the national response team, which comprises the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM), National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA), Jamaica Defence Force (JDF), Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) and the Social Development Commission (SDC). “It is a multi-sectoral affair,” Dr. De La Haye said. “No one Ministry is able to address the situation. Zika isa preventable illness and we need to do everything we can to get the mosquitoes out of the way,” he pointed out.Dr. De La Haye is inviting members of the public to join the effort, noting that special focus would be placed on the gathering of bulky waste for removal by the NSWMA.
Manchester United have announced that former youth coach Eric Harrison passed away peacefully on Wednesday night.The 81-year-old joined United as a youth coach in 1981 from Everton and famously oversaw the Class of ’92 team that consisted of the likes of David Beckham, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Ryan Giggs.Harrison also worked under another United legend in Mark Hughes as an assistant manager at Wales for four years and won an MBE for his services to football last year.Since 2014, however, Harrison had been living in a nursing home after being diagnosed with mixed dementia and died on Wednesday.“We are extremely saddened to report that our former youth coach Eric Harrison passed away last night,” read a statement on United’s Twitter.“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Eric’s family and friends at this sad and difficult time.”Also paying tribute was the legendary United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who praised Harrison’s contribution to football and labelled him one of the “greatest coaches of our time.”“Eric’s contribution to football and not just at Manchester United was incredible,” said Ferguson.“When I came as manager I was lucky enough to have Eric on the staff as head of youth development, so I got to see the work he did and not just with the Class of ’92 but with all the young players.“He built character and determination in those young players and prepared them for the future. He was a teacher, he gave these players a path, a choice and he only did that through his own hard work and sacrifice.“He was able to impart that education to the young which made him one of the greatest coaches of our time.”Former United midfielder Beckham wrote on Instagram: “We’ve lost our mentor, our coach and the man who made us.“He taught us how to play, how to never give up, how important it was to win your individual battles and what we needed to do to play for Manchester United Football Club.“He was always watching and always with us every time we played, I can still hear him telling me NO MORE HOLLYWOOD PASSES.“I can still see him as we played on The Cliff training ground looking down on us either with a proud smile or a loud bang of his fist on the window knowing any minute he would be on his way down to probably advise me in the most polite way to stop playing those passes.“More importantly he made us understand how to work hard and respect each other and not just on the pitch. We won’t forget the life lessons he gave us.“Eric we love you and owe you everything. Gary, Phil, Ryan, Paul, Nicky and David.”Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.Below are some of the tributes that have been coming in today from other United greats.Eric Harrison, one of footballs greatest people has sadly passed away.

KUSI’s Elizabeth Alvarez shows us why the annual event is critical in helping young students understand the meaning behind ‘Never Forget.’Remembering what happened on 9-11 is personal for Retired San Diego Fire Captain Ron Edrozo. “We went there with the intent of saving lives. That was our intent. But as soon as we got there we knew this was going to be mostly recovery and hopefully we could send some people home.”He spent 3 weeks at ground zero as part of the California Urban Search and Rescue Team.During that dreadful time, Captain Edrozo and his team recover the body of a New York Port Authority Police Officer. Port Authority Officer Uhuru Houston had died while attempting to rescue victims trapped in the World Trade Center.Seventeen years later, as an instructor for the Miramar College Fire Tech Academy, Cpt. Edrozo stands before students at the school’s annual 9-11 remembrance ceremony helping them to understand the significance of what happened.“We want them to know this is what you’re putting in for it’s not just the fire fighting in the building collapse it’s a lot of medical aid and so you need to get out there and do your thing out there and remember that you’re out there to help the public” said Edrozo.Many of the students, who are one day hoping to become firefighters, were children even babies 17 years ago when 9/11 happen. Student Justin Johnson was 10.“At the time I had no idea the significance of that event” said Johnson. But as he grew up, Johnson and other prospective firefighters at Miramar College have come to understand the horror, the unification of the country and the heroism that was involved.And now, these young men and women have desire to be just like Captain Edrozo.“It speaks volumes about him as a person that Not only was he willing to risk so much by being there during 9/11 but that he’s here today and that we can call him our instructor. I think that with Captain Edrozo we can say that as students we’re certainly in good hands” said Johnson.
