Two-time Tony nominee Sherie Rene Scott is to release a new album, All Will Be Well: The Piece of Meat Studio Sessions on Sh-K-Boom Records. The album is based on the Tony nominee’s concert evening Piece of Meat, which debuted at the Times Square hotspot 54 Below last year, and will be available digitally from March 25. Betsy Wolfe “The album is about true love, and letting go of a way of being,” said Scott in a statement. “It’s about how to decide what to hang on to, and what to let go of.” The pop record combines contemporary rock, jazz and folk elements with interpretations of songs by Joni Mitchell, Talking Heads and Noah and the Whale as well as originals by Scott and Todd Almond, who serves as producer arranger and Music Director. Betsy Wolfe, Lindsay Mendez, Barrie McLain, Katie Britton, Michael Slattery and Michael Niederer are featured on backup vocals.
It is estimated that there are a total of about 10.000 such workers, both locals and mostly seasonal workers from the continent and Slavonia. “Although the workers do not currently have an established employment relationship, they have counted on employment in tourism and are equally affected by this situation, without social security and it is uncertain how long they will be able to start working.”Emphasize from the Social Council for Tourism.

Exemption from the obligation to pay taxes and contributions on salaries for workers who are currently out of work and / or working at a significantly reduced intensity, with the aim of preserving jobs and liquidity; 4. Reduction of VAT and deferral of tax payment; reduction of other fiscal and parafiscal obligations, concession fees and public levies to local governments 3. Favorable liquidity lending and / or elaboration of models for payment of existing and future liabilities (interest payments, principal deferral) and / or complete moratorium on credit liabilities for a certain period of time depending on the degree of threat “Due to extraordinary circumstances, it is necessary to adopt extraordinary measures, which must enable that after the crisis, which will, we hope, end soon, we can continue to work as if it never existed. This means that all of us together must do everything to save jobs, ensure regular payment of workers’ salaries, but also compensation of salaries to those workers who, unfortunately, could not start working due to this situation. Measures must be taken immediately, so that the consequences of the lack of adequate measures do not ultimately deepen the chronic shortage of workers after the crisis caused by the coronavirus”, Said Marina Cvitić, president of the Trade Union of Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia. The measures will depend on the duration and extent of the damage caused by the impact of the coronavirus on the economy, and in the situation of practically stopped or significantly reduced operation of catering facilities, urgent decisions are needed to ensure workers’ incomes. Therefore, for workers scheduled to work in the season with whom the employer has agreed employment, and will realize it with a greater delay, we propose the following measures: Priority measures are given to ensure liquidity in the next two months in the function of preserving jobs and to ensure business conditions for the continuation of the tourist year and the normalization of business, point out the Social Council for Tourism at HUP. “Urgent solutions are needed and it is important that all employers and trade unions and the Government of the Republic of Croatia, ie the public and state sector, give their contribution, because as employers lose part of their revenues, the public sector will have to make urgent decisions to reduce overall operating costs” said Natali Komen Bujas, director of HUP – Association of Hospitality and Tourism. Employers and unions in tourism are jointly appealing to urgently adopt measures to help tourism. “Preservation of employment and existing jobs in the situation of already present labor shortage in tourism is of key interest for the entire economy of the Republic of Croatia, since tourism in the Republic of Croatia is a fundamental driver of the entire economy and development of other closely related activities, transport, trade, agriculture, construction , culture, sports, etc.” said Eduard Andrić, President of the Trade Union of Tourism and Services of Croatia and President of the Social Council for Tourism We are also aware that if this situation persists, not only the employment of permanent workers is endangered and we also take special care of seasonal workers with whom employment has already been agreed, but due to this situation they failed to start work as planned, according to the Social Tourism Council. 1. Introduction of a job waiting fee in the amount of 70% of the average salary in the Republic of Croatia Through our role as a responsible social partner, we are talking as signatories of the Collective Agreement on Hospitality, considering the possibility of temporarily invalidating the agreement reached on increasing the minimum basic salaries in hospitality for 2020, the Social Council for Tourism points out. 5. Active approach of the Republic of Croatia and use of planned measures to help the tourism sector from EU funds Photo: Pixabay.com Preserving employment and existing jobs is key The social partners in tourism expect urgent support from the Government of the Republic of Croatia for companies and workers and propose the following “Measures to help tourism and preserve jobs in the hospitality industry” due to the impact of the corona virus: 2. Expansion and adjustment of the measure Permanent seasonal – reduction of the obligation to engage this year; that seasonal workers who were supposed to start work, but have not been so far, may also be included in the measure; relaxation of conditions for the implementation of measures related to the minimum maintenance of the number of employed persons; 2. Extension of the permanent seasonal measure to all those who were supposed to be employed for the period of waiting for employment from 1 April onwards

We didn’t want to jam-pack it with information. We wanted to keep it in two pages,” she said.According to Frampton, the public can also send their feedback on their face book page at Dominicaaidsresponse.“We are hoping that the project will be sustainable and we hope to put it in our annual budget,” she added.Meantime Frampton says lack of media interest into its programs is also another reason for launching the newsletter.“Most times we have to call the media to say this is what is going on. We like if people come and find out what is happening. Anything we have to do on the radio most times, we have to pay for it so the media has a role to play in HIV information,” she said.Dominica Vibes News

They’ve never had to make payroll, and they have never had to sign personally for a line of credit. They offer their advice without the responsibility of having tens, hundreds, or thousands of people depend upon their judgement and decision-making for their livelihoods.The fact that they haven’t started or led a sales organization doesn’t mean that their opinions, ideas, and experience don’t have value. But it does mean that it doesn’t come from the same place as someone who has had a very different set of experiences and a different level of responsibility. They haven’t had a company’s success or failure rest on their shoulders—or their decisions. It’s easy for them to tell you that you can avoid doing the hard stuff, the stuff you don’t want to do.Front of the CheckPeople who have signed the front of a check have a different view of things. They have a more practical, less idealistic view of things. Generally, they don’t fall prey to the latest fads, and they tend to offer advice that is based on principles that have allowed them to grow their business. That experience is hard won, and much of it comes from having made mistakes. They will tell you that it is necessary to do the hard stuff, the stuff that you don’t want to do, the things that make you uncomfortable.There are many who write about what one must do to grow sales without ever being responsible for anything more than their own personal sales. They sign the back of checks, and they can afford to be idealistic, having no responsibility for the larger organization as a whole. They are free to tell you what you should do, without having any skin in the game where they receive a check that they sign on the back. They have strong opinions about the things that you should not do to grow your own sales or your own business.There are others who offer you different advice. They have skin in the game, and being wrong comes with a very high price. Their responsibility extends far beyond themselves, and they feel the pressure to perform and succeed. Very few of them would offer you the advice you hear from those who sign the back of a paycheck, because they sign the front of a paycheck.

Canadians were quick to speak out against the attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand that left at least 49 people dead. Here is a selection of quotes:———“Canada condemns this attack, and will continue to work closely with New Zealand, our close partner and friend, and others to take action against violent extremism. Hate has no place anywhere. We must all confront Islamophobia and work to create a world in which all people — no matter their faith, where they live, or where they were born — can feel safe and secure.” — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau———“Freedom has come under attack in New Zealand as peaceful worshippers are targeted in a despicable act of evil. All people must be able to practice their faith freely and without fear. There are no words strong enough to condemn this kind of vile hatred. I am praying for peace for the families of those lost and recovery for those injured.” — Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer———“Heartbroken by the devastating news of deadly shootings at two mosques in New Zealand. My heart goes out to the families of the murdered and all those impacted by this act of terror. Islamophobia kills — and has no place anywhere in the world.” — NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh———“Like Quebec and Canada, New Zealand is a peaceful place where people want to live in safety and peace. We have recently experienced a tragedy that has affected everyone in Quebec. I feel totally in solidarity with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, and I fully understand her emotion today. There is no room for extremism in our societies; there is no room for intolerance. We will not allow violence to take root in our democratic societies.” — Quebec Premier Francois Legault———“I am devastated by the news of the despicable and cowardly shootings in New Zealand. Freedom of religion, peace and rule of law are pillars of democracy and the world we share.” — Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister———“This is a very dark day for those of us who care about the rule of law, plurality, acceptance, and religious freedom. As Canadians, we are acutely aware that this is not the first time Muslims have been targeted while at prayer. That these innocent victims were murdered in their house of worship adds an additional dimension of horror to a deeply tragic situation.” — Jeffrey Rosenthal, co-chair of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs———“Once again, my heart breaks. Not because I am Muslim, but because I am human. But as we condemn the horrific terrorist act in New Zealand, we also must commit ourselves to fighting hatred wherever we find it. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un. We belong to God to him we return.” — Calgary Mayor Naheed NenshiThe Canadian Press
TORONTO – Toronto’s main stock index continued to push higher Thursday as Wall Street veered lower on heightened interest rate expectations from the U.S. Federal Reserve.The S&P/TSX composite index climbed 65.32 points to 15,454.92, with rising energy and financials shares among the key gainers.Following Wednesday’s announcement that the Fed remains on course to raise rates one more time this year and three times in 2018, interest-sensitive names on the TSX have benefited, said portfolio manager Kash Pashootan.“Banks stocks are having a good couple of days here given that higher interest rates help their net interest margins,” said Pashootan, who works at First Avenue Advisory, a Raymond James company.“So although the announcement came from the U.S. it had a spillover effect in Canada.”South of the border, banks and industrials were among the few bright spots on U.S. stock indexes as modest gains from a day earlier were wiped out.The Dow Jones industrial average was down 53.36 points to 22,359.23. The S&P 500 index lost 7.64 points to 2,500.60 and the Nasdaq composite index gave back 33.35 points to 6,422.69.“You’re seeing a hangover effect from yesterday’s Federal Reserve meeting and comments,” said Pashootan. “Really, the take away of course is that if there were any doubts that rates were going to continue to rise, that’s been removed off the table.”As a result, he said, that’s having a bullish effect on the U.S. dollar and putting downward pressure on the loonie.The Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of 81.04 cents US, down 0.44 of a cent.Pashootan said the fact that the market has been fairly boring and inactive in the United States “is a good thing because it’s taking the time needed to digest the news.”“If you think about monetary policy in Canada compared to the U.S., it’s been quite different in the sense that the U.S. has done a better job at speaking ahead and preparing the markets for higher rates,” he said.“The Bank of Canada didn’t prepare the markets as well in advance and you’ve seen the result of that in the Canadian dollar being up double digits in the last six months.”In commodities news, the November crude contract shed 14 cents to US$50.55 per barrel and the October natural gas contract was down 15 cents to US$2.95 per mmBTU.The December gold contract dropped $21.60 to US$1,294.80 an ounce and the December copper contract declined three cents to US$2.93 a pound.Follow @DaveHTO on Twitter
