Prime Minister, Dr Denzil DouglasBASSETTERE, St. Kitts CMC – As St Kitts Nevis celebrates 30 years of Independence, Prime Minister Dr. Denzil Douglas announced that civil servants will be granted a pay increase by the end of the year.In his Independence message on Thursday, Douglas said Government workers must be rewarded for their outstanding service.“In addition the double salary that was paid this month to Government workers and any increase in the salary of Government workers over the next few months will act as a fiscal stimulus. We are convinced that our public servants and pensioners deserve to be rewarded for their outstanding service over the years and we have therefore set in place the appropriate mechanisms to decide on a pay increase for Government workers by year end.”The Prime Minister noted that based on several projects and initiatives as well as his administration’s goal to increase growth, economic activity in the country continues to rise.“I am confident that we have turned the corner in this regard and that the numerous projects and initiatives that I have outlined here today, will dramatically raise the level of economic activity.”Douglas, who came into power in 1995, said the people must be the centre of any successful development strategy.“Consequently, our people have been the actors in the development process that we initiated here in 1995 and they have also been the object and purpose of our development effort. We could not see how it would be possible for our economy to make the required quantum leap in development if the majority of our young people were unemployed and in a state of frustration and disenchantment.”The Prime Minister pointed to several programmes undertaken by his administration including the construction of a new hospital, the distribution of free laptop computers in schools, expanding financial resources available to students and housing initiatives.We have also provided direct assistance to lower income families through the provision of affordable subsidized housing and through the implementation of an impressive array of social development programmes ….”He also assured the nation that the minimum wage is still under review “because we are determined that we will protect and improve the standard of living of the lowest paid workers among us.”Concerning the country’s development ,the Prime Minister said the progress made over the last 30 years is impressive but noted that much more needs to be done.“In fact, in this term in office alone we have halved our national debt, reduced crime, improved the reliability of electricity, replaced all deficits in our fiscal account with healthy surpluses, and wiped out bank overdrafts with positive and substantial bank balances. It is not surprising that we have been labeled a high income country by the international financial institutions,” he said.

Skyworks has broadened its antenna tuner portfolio with two new tuners that are ideal for smartphones, data cards and MiFi® hotspots. These tuners improve antenna efficiency, as well as Total Radiated Power (TRP) and Total Isotropic Sensitivity (TIS) performance. They are Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI®)-controlled devices that support ultra-low Ron (SKY19247-686LF) and ultra-high Vpeak (SKY19237-001).The Tuners deliver high linearity for carrier aggregation applications and low insertion loss. They eliminate concern over GPIO count and efficiently meet the demands of programmable, complex RF front-end devices. The tuners boast excellent harmonic performance, enabling robust designs that can pass regulatory certification. The devices are available in a compact 10-pin, 1.5 x 1.1 x 0.5 mm QFN package (SKY19247-686LF) and 11-bump, 1.685 × 1.775 × 0.5 mm WLCSP package (SKY19237-001).Using in-house antenna expertise, Skyworks supports customer implementation with modeling simulation data, design and layout optimization, as well as onsite support.
Related Phil Ellsworth / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) — Ongoing back spasms is keeping Tiger Woods from competing in his next two scheduled tournaments.“My doctors have advised me not to play the next two weeks, to continue my treatment and to let my back calm down,” Woods, 41, said in a statement Friday. “This is not what I was hoping for or expecting.”Woods began suffering from the back pain last week while he was competing in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. He ended up withdrawing form the tournament before he began his second-round of play.He will now skip the Genesis Open next week in Pacific Palisades, California, and the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida the following week.“I am extremely disappointed to miss the Genesis Open, a tournament that benefits my foundation, and The Honda Classic, my hometown event. I would like to thank Genesis for their support, and I know we will have an outstanding week,” Woods said.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico
