With infection numbers once again creeping up, fears are rising that the new school start could yet prove temporary.But officials warn that children cannot afford to miss more school. “The children need to be present in school because we have to prevent more lost time,” Steffen Kaestner, headteacher of the CJD Jugenddorf-Christophorus school in Rostock, told AFP.Strict rules have been drawn up to limit transmission of the new coronavirus, with cases across Germany rising above 500 per day in recent weeks. Different age groups are being taught separately, so that if a pupil tests positive, only one class will have to go into quarantine and the rest of the school can remain open. Masks must be worn in the corridors, classrooms regularly ventilated and pupils are required to wash their hands regularly and avoid hugging. CJD has 1,350 students aged 9-18. Only two are missing, a decision by their parents, “who belong to a risk group,” said the headteacher, but all the teachers are present.Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania has so far been the German state least hit by the coronavirus, with only 20 deaths out of a total 9,148 in Germany since the beginning of the crisis. Thousands of children in northern Germany became the first in Europe to begin a new school year on Monday, with the rest of the country watching anxiously as full-time classes began after months of curtailed hours over the coronavirus pandemic.Masks will be a daily accessory for some of the 150,000 children returning to school in the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania region, Germany’s first state to reopen the school gates after the summer holidays.Education ministers of Germany’s 16 states had agreed that schools will reopen full-time after the summer break, after offering only partial hours in the weeks when the lockdown was eased.

Tweet The Girl Guides Association of Dominica winds down its 90th anniversary celebrations with a health fair this weekend.A collaboration with the Ministry of Health and themed, ‘Our Health, Our Wealth, Time to Take Control‘, the fair takes place this Saturday.Marcia Dublin of the Girl Guides Association of Dominica says the association realised that the adoption of healthy lifestyles in Dominica requires more encouragement and support even among the Girl Guides.Dublin said, “When the [girls]come to meetings, we notice the snacks that they bring. When we go camping, the sort of things that they bring along with them, and even what they ask for on the menu. We realized that this is very serious. Overall, at the national level as well, we noticed the concern in reference to non-communicable diseases, the threatening situation of cancer among very young persons, and the situation of HIV among our very young, working class persons. That has raised a bit of concern for us,” she shared.“Also the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts have raised a number of issues in relation to healthy lifestyles. We realized because of this, that as part of our 90th Anniversary, we need to focus a bit on healthy lifestyle.”Dublin says the association wanted to reach out to the public in an impactful way.Dublin said, “Throughout the years, we have always been highlighting at our meetings with the girls the need for healthy eating, the need also to maintain a healthy lifestyle and because of that we realized that we needed to do something. In order to do something at a national level, we thought it would be best if we could collaborate with the Ministry of Health. We were indeed so happy that they embraced the invitation.”On Saturday, patrons will have access to health checks and counselling services, as well as activities for children.The association labels it as a family event and encourages the general public to participate.It takes place on the Dame Eugenia Charles Boulevard from 9am to 3pm.The Girl Guides Association of Dominica was started in 1929 and to date has 700 members across the island.In 1987 it became an associate member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, and attained full membership in 2008.

Gaspar would be the fourth judge tohandle the case following Judge Yvette Go of RTC, Branch 37; Judge Gelveson aspairing judge when Go went on leave; and Amular. RTC, Branch 35’s Judge Daniel AntonioGerardo Amular decided to inhibit from the case. In seeking the expropriation of PECO’sassets, MORE Power cited Section 10 of RA 11212 and Rule 67 Section 2 of theRevised Rules of Court authorizing it to take possession of, exercise controlover, and manage and operate all of the power distribution assets in IloiloCity. MORE Power filed the expropriationcase against PECO in March 2019 a month after President Rodrigo Duterte singedMORE Power’s franchise law (Republic Act 11212) as new power distributor inIloilo City. The city’s new power distributor alsopetitioned the court to determine the reasonable value of PECO’s powerdistribution system assets for just compensation, then order the transfer ofthe ownership of these upon payment of a just compensation. Judge Gelvezon approved the re-raffle. “Notwithstanding that the PresidingJudge performs his duties in accordance with the conscientious dictate of hisconscience and the applicable provisions of law, it has come to a point thatwhatever judgment the Presiding Judge would render in the case would not beaccepted by either the plaintiff or the defendant or maybe tainted with bias,”according to Amular. PECO, on the other hand, questionedthe constitutionality of RA 11212, specifically the sections on expropriation. The expropriation of PECO’s assets inits favor, according to MORE Power, would allow it to “immediately address andcorrect poor services, overcharging, frequent brownouts, expensive rates, oldand unsafe facilities and practices, and other service deficiencies that thiscity’s power users and consumers had long suffered.” “Since the court is the leastunderstood as an institution in the discharge of its function, the lack ofunderstanding of the rules and procedures in connection thereto would affectthe integrity of our courts to uphold the rule of law,” lamented Amular. By MORE Power’s own estimate, however,PECO’s power distribution system is valued at P481,842,450 – way below PECO’sprevious claim that its assets are worth at least P2 billion. In an order dated Jan. 15, Amularstated he opted to have the case re-raffled after consulting Executive JudgeVictor Gelvezon. The case was re-raffled to the sala ofRTC, Branch 33 of Judge Ma. Theresa Gaspar on Monday. PECO’s power distribution franchiseexpired on Jan. 19, 2019./PN MORE Power asked RTC, Branch 37 toissue a writ of possession authorizing it to take immediate control, operation,use, and disposition of PECO’s power distribution system assets. ILOILO City – A new Regional TrialCourt (RTC) branch and a new judge will be handling the expropriation casefiled by MORE Electric and Power Corp. (MORE Power) against Panay Electric Co.(PECO).
