Warren Blake, the president of the Jamaica Athletic Administrative Association (JAAA), says he intends to offer himself for a second term. Speaking in an exclusive interview, Dr Blake told The Gleaner his time in office had been challenging and successful. He hopes to seek re-election at the JAAA annual general meeting later this year. Blake first took office in 2011, just after the untimely passing of sitting JAAA president, Howard Aris, and served the last year of Aris’ term in office. He was elected in 2012 to continue as president. “I still intend to go again, to offer myself for a second term,” he said quietly, “and the second term would be my final term. “It has been a very challenging four years, and I think the team that I have worked with is a very good team, he reflected.” We have had quite a lot of successes, I would say, and if you look at medal counts, except for that one major games that we spoke about, one medal at World Youth Championships, this has really been the most successful period in Jamaica’s track and field history.” In 2012, Jamaica took home 12 medals with four gold, four silver and four bronze from the London Olympics. That is one more than the previous Olympic high of 11 from the 2008 Games in Beijing. That was followed by a six gold medal portion of a total nine at the 2013 World Championships in Moscow and seven gold from a haul of 12 at the 2015 Worlds. That’s just one short of Jamaica’s 13-medal collection at the 2009 World Championships. That team performance garnered seven gold medals. JAAA elections occur after each Olympic Games. One of Blake’s major objectives for the rest of his current term and any other time he might have in office is to take the JAAA into what he calls ‘a more professional approach to track and field’. One area under his stethoscope is the running of the JAAA office. “Right now, we survive in the office because we have a treasurer, Mr (Ludlow) Watts, who is really a full-time worker without any pay,” he remarked. “He comes to the office every day and puts in a full shift.” According to the president, general secretary Garth Gayle also does extensive work there. “If we didn’t have workers like this who really sacrifice tremendous time and effort to keep the day to day affairs of the organisation going we’d be in serious trouble,” he explained. “I think we do need to find a way, find a sponsor, or find out if our budget is able to pay someone full time to be in the office to do the day to day activities of the association. “I think that is something that must happen,” he asserted.

In exchange for buying a $50 annual membership, the organization is offering donors the chance to use their network log-in as their OpenID. In other words, if you’re the type of person who shares their content for the good of education, art and humanity, now you can wear it like a badge across the networks you frequent. While it’s often misinterpreted as an organization looking to remove copyright from creative works, Creative Commons actually helps content producers decide on the exact uses for their products. For instance, some content owners allow derivative works for non-commercial and educational purposes and some allow for remix pending attribution. The point is that the organization aims to make more content available to the public for experimentation. As works are released to “the commons”, artists, educators and innovators learn and build upon them. ReadWriteWeb covered the Creative Commons database and some of its shining case studies in 2008. It make sense that this group would offer OpenID as membership to their service. OpenID is a decentralized digital identity that allows for easy access to a number of networks. Members benefit from one singular identity and networks benefit from a lowered barrier to membership. In this way, more information is shared across a variety os social landscapes and therefore, as with Creative Commons, there are more opportunities for engagement and education. Says open source advocate Chris Messina in a recent blog post on CC OpenID:“Creative Commons is redistributing the brand equity and social capital their members have accrued over the last several years by letting people show and verify their affiliation to the organization.With this simple example, we can start to see the symbiosis of making an intentional choice about identity: Creative Commons finds a new revenue opportunity and members of the community have a way to express their affiliation and promote the brand.”
SHERBROOKE, Que. – Economic growth in Canada has been strong in recent quarters, but significant challenges remain and productivity levels are still well below those in the United States, a senior Bank of Canada official says.Speaking to the Sherbrooke Chamber of Commerce, Bank of Canada deputy governor Sylvain Leduc said Tuesday that productivity growth could be increased by reducing the barriers that future fast-growing firms may face.Leduc says a report from the World Bank noted that Canada is one of the easiest countries to start a business, but he added that it is more difficult for firms to grow beyond a certain point.He says the recent free trade deal with Europe and an agreement earlier this year to help reduce barriers to interprovincial trade are encouraging examples to help firms grow.Leduc said that while about half of new firms close their doors within five years of starting, those that do make a name for themselves tend to grow rapidly and referred to them as “gazelles.”“These young, transformative companies that are growing at dizzying speeds have a good chance of developing new technologies that increase productivity,” he said.Leduc says the pace of economic growth is expected to slow over the next few quarters, but noted it should still exceed that of potential output.“We therefore expect an increase in entry rates and a decline in business exits over the coming quarters,” he said. “Moreover, the contribution of new firms to increasing the productive capacity of the economy could give rise to a virtuous circle of growth.”The Bank of Canada raised its key interest rate target last month for the second time this year following a strong start to the year for the economy.However, governor Stephen Poloz signalled last week that the bank would take a more cautious approach to any future rate hikes.
