Here Are All the Big 12 Title Scenarios on One Page

first_imgThis looks nice on paper(that’s a lot of orange), but Oklahoma Still has to go out and do it on the field. From a percentages standpoint, it appears we are rooting for TCU this weekend in Norman because if TCU wins and OSU wins this weekend, the Big 12 is ours.From a storyline standpoint, however, I want Bedlam to be for it all.Who wins the Big 12? All the possible outcomes here, assuming Baylor defeats Texas pic.twitter.com/XMtN6VkbX5— Max Olson (@max_olson) November 16, 2015Also, is everyone aware that there is potential for this to be the greatest Bedlam ever?#okstate #Sooners Historical. At the 10-game mark in any year, the best combined record for OSU & OU: 19-1. There was 18-2 in 2011 & 1987.— Bill Haisten ??

More Than 500 Young Persons to Be Certified Through HOPE

first_img More than 500 young participants in the Housing, Opportunity, Production and Employment (HOPE) programme are to graduate by the end of June.Speaking at a JIS ‘Think Tank’ on April 18, National Coordinator of the HOPE programme, Lt. Col. Martin Rickman, said the participants will receive certificates for having successfully completed their training and apprenticeship by the end of the second quarter of this year.“The initial training, which is referred to as core skills training, includes a values and attitudes component, followed by a basic skills training component, after which they serve as an apprentice and are paid a stipend,” said Lt. Col. Rickman.Upon completion, the candidates are assessed for certification by HEART Trust/ NTA, in accordance with the programme guidelines.The Coordinator further noted that certification carries dual benefits, as the person would have been certified as having served his country as well as being certified in a specific skill area.“They can then go on to use this certification to secure gainful employment later on, or to start their own business ventures, if they so choose,” noted Lt. Col. Rickman.According to Lt. Col. Rickman, a system of monitoring is currently being developed as a means of following up with graduates from the programme.“We want to track their progress for a few years to ensure they continue on the path that they have started,” he said.Meanwhile, the Coordinator indicated that there are currently 5,000 participants in the programme, and of that number, 2,500 persons are actively engaged in a number of specialised areas across various agencies and departments.“We have persons placed within organisations such as The National Housing Trust, Accountant General’s Department (AGD), Factories Corporation of Jamaica (FCJ), Urban Development Corporation (UDC), Port Authority of Jamaica, HEART Trust/NTA, the Ministry of Education, among others, and we are hoping to have some take-up within the private sector in short order,” Lt.
