first_img“Operation Welcome” Marks 10,000th Air Passenger as IOM Assists Brazil’s Voluntary Relocation of Venezuelans IOM– Operation Welcome (or Operação Acolhida, in Portugese) is the Brazil government’s humanitarian response to a historic wave of refugees and migrants arriving from the country’s northern neighbor, Venezuela.The International Organization for Migration (IOM) plays a key role in that effort and last month (January 2021) reached an important milestone, purchasing the 10,000th airline ticket to assist Venezuelan families seeking relocation in Brazil’s south.Part of that welcome is Brazil’s effort to transfer newly arrived Venezuelans who choose to voluntarily relocate from the northern border-one of the country’s less developed regions-to cities and states across the country.The Federal Government of Brazil’s voluntary relocation strategy was initiated in April 2018. IOM had supported the government in all aspects of the effort, whose beneficiaries surpassed 46,000 as of December 2020.Established to relieve the pressure on public health, social assistance, and education in the state of Roraima and elsewhere in Northern Brazil, the initiative assists refugees and migrants from Venezuela who wish to remain in the country, yet are willing to relocate to other parts of Brazil. The expectation is that a fresh start will expand the possibilities of socioeconomic integration for these new arrivals.Family groups account for about 87 per cent of the cases. Such was the case of “Diannys,” whose group included three children and five adults. Together, they flew from Roraima to the municipality of Assis Chautebriand, in Paraná, on Brazil’s southern coast. Diannys described her family’s emotions after IOM confirmed they’d be making the trip as a mixture of gratitude and hopes and anticipation of facing new opportunities.“It was challenging to leave my country, but I am very grateful to have the possibility of coming to Brazil,” Diannys explained. “Above all, we are looking for a better life for our children. IOM helped us a lot, and we are completely grateful to them.”IOM’s role working with Operation Welcome consists of an array of tasks, including assisting in the verification of the beneficiaries’ documentation and conducting medical consultations before travel. IOM staff also engage in the active search for job vacancies in intended destinations before the flights leave, and with ground transfer when necessary after the flights land.Besides all this face-to-face support for the Venezuelans, IOM has provided 600 commercial airline tickets each month for the Operation Welcome’s relocation capacity, complementing similar flights carried out by the Brazilian Air Force, which moves hundreds at a time on larger planes.The head of the Relocation Coordination Center of Operation Welcome, Colonel Luis Henrique Valério, noted that IOM’s assistance providing commercial airline passage allows Brazil to take smaller groups to smaller cities. “This increases their opportunities, especially access to the job market,” Colonel Valério said.A “Passport for Education” is provided to families with children. It is a kit comprising bilingual educational booklets with cultural information about Brazil and information on the enrollment process in Brazil’s public schools.Relocations didn’t stop during 2020, even with the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We adapted, strengthened security protocols, and continued to support Operation Welcome. It is a great satisfaction to know that we helped make the dream of these 10,000 people come true,” said IOM Relocation Coordinator, Eugênio Guimarães.IOM’s activities in the Relocation Strategy are carried out with financial support from the United States Department of State’s Office of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM). /Public Release.

first_imgAutomation of Cryptographic Module Validation Program The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has released a new draft project description, Automation of the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP). Release of this project description begins a process to further identify project requirements, scope, and hardware and software components for use in a laboratory environment.The NCCoE will solicit participation from industry to demonstrate first-party and third-party tests and test tools for automation of the CMVP, as well as first-party processes and means for communicating the results to NIST. Increased automation is necessary because a number of elements of the current validation processes are manual in nature, making third-party testing and government validation of cryptographic modules often incompatible with industry requirements. In addition to demonstrating tests, tools, and processes, this project will also result in practice descriptions in the form of white papers, playbook generation, and implementation demonstrations, which aim to improve the ability and efficiency of organizations.The public comment period is open through May 12, 2021.

About 50 of those kilometres could be covered on pure electric power alone. Cadillac has announced it will no longer offer the CT6 with a plug-in hybrid powertrain in North America, due to slow sales and, possibly, the current trade war between the U.S. and China.The CT6 PHEV is produced in China largely for the Chinese market, and it will still be produced there, but Cadillac will no longer import those cars to the US, which could be due to tariffs placed on goods coming from China.GM says it’s focused on building a performance V-Series CT6, GM Authority reports, and that “Cadillac remains committed to electrified systems for our vehicles.” last_img read more

first_imgAdvertisements ICT Investors Showing Interest In Jamaica TechnologyNovember 11, 2011 RelatedICT Investors Showing Interest In Jamaica RelatedICT Investors Showing Interest In Jamaica By Allan Brooks, JIS Senior Reporter RelatedICT Investors Showing Interest In Jamaica FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail KINGSTON — As Government’s efforts to secure increased investments in Information Communication Technology (ICT) begins to bear fruit, special envoy with responsibility for ICT in the Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Ambassador Patrick Casserly, said that a “very large player” will be coming to the island soon. He said that others are in line to visit and explore investment opportunities in the sector. Mr. Casserly, who was addressing the Jamaica Exporters’ Association’s Breakfast Forum yesterday morning (November 10) at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston, said the country has the potential to attract huge investment in ICT to create jobs and grow the economy. He said Jamaica has the advantage of location and ranks among the top destinations for outsourcing activities among English-speaking countries. He noted also that Jamaica’s culture converges with that of United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, driven largely by the media, the country’s exports and interaction with the peoples of those countries. Mr. Casserly pointed to the need for increased focus on education and training as key ingredients in realising the potential of the ICT sector. “One of the challenges, as we go forward, is ensuring that our population is properly educated and properly aligned so that we can answer clearly, but also give proper content,” he stated. While lauding the contribution of call centres to the growth of Jamaica’s ICT industry, he argued that it is time to look to other areas of the sector. He further encouraged those exporters, who have their customer service operations in other countries to “bring it home. You have to have confidence in where you are based.”last_img read more

Portia Simpson Miller, opened the Linstead to Moneague segment of the North/South Highway, on Tuesday, August 5.In her address, the Prime Minister noted that she kept close to the construction of the project, as the ease of travel is vital to business transactions, and productivity.Recalling that the idea of such a road  first surfaced over 40 years ago, she said after four major feasibility studies, “the work is underway, and we open what will become the second leg of the North South Highway.”The Prime Minister noted that there will be a one-month free passage for motorists from August 5 to September 5, after which they will have to pay toll charges.There will be a 40 per cent reduction of travel time with the opening of the highway, and when the entire highway is operating from Caymanas in St. Catherine, to Ocho Rios, in St. Ann, the current hour and a half travel time will be cut to about 45 minutes.The  highway is being developed by China Engineering Company (CHEC), and is a project linking Caymanas, in St. Catherine to Mammee Bay, in St. Ann, crossing the Rio Cobre, and bypassing Mount Rosser and Flat Bridge. The highway will travel through the communities of Waterloo, Content, Giblatore and Wakefield in St. Catherine, and nearby communities in St. Ann, including Phoenix Park, Golden Grove, Steerfield and Davis.Calling on local investors to take advantage of the business possibilities that are now available, the Prime Minister emphasized that investment prospects from the project are “exciting” and when “completed, the highway will open up new areas for the development of housing, commercial and resort facilities, similar to what happened with the creation of the North Coast Highway.”“This will reduce the rural to urban migration by encouraging persons to stay in their communities, and work elsewhere. We are anticipating new opportunities for tourism development, and I urge our Jamaican entrepreneurs, small, medium and large, to position themselves for the new economic possibilities that will arise from the new highway,” Mrs. Simpson Miller told the audience.The 66-kilometre Jamaica North South Highway is the largest infrastructure development project on the island, with an investment of US$730 million in loans from the China Development Bank, and with equity from CHEC Americas. None of the loans to build the roadway is guaranteed or secured by the Government of Jamaica.Also at the opening were Minister of Transport, Works and Housing, Dr. the Hon. Omar Davies; former Prime Ministers, the Most Hon. P.J. Patterson, and the Hon. Bruce Golding; officials from China, and CHEC, Cabinet members; Dr. Horace Chang, Opposition Spokesperson on Infrastructure Development; Opposition Spokesman on Finance, Mr. Audley Shaw, and other political representatives, as well as persons from the business community Advertisementslast_img read more
