Jamaican Makes Her Mark as UN Peacekeeper

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Oberlene Smith-Whyte, is making an impact as a United Nations peacekeeper, winning the respect of her colleagues and even insurgents in some of the most inhospitable countries around the globe.United Nations Peacekeeper, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Oberlene Smith-Whyte.The police officer, who has made the Government and people of Jamaica proud, through her work in war-torn countries such as Namibia, Liberia and Darfur in Africa, describes her missions as “adventures of a lifetime.”Relating her mission experience during the First Official Commemorative Ceremony and Exhibition of International Day of UN Peacekeepers at the Hilton Kingston hotel in New Kingston recently, DSP Smith-Whyte tells a story of hardships, violence, but eventual triumph and peace.She recalls the dread she felt at the briefing before leaving for that first mission to Namibia. “We were told when we were going to Namibia that we (might) not come back to Jamaica,” she tells her audience. “We were told that we were all going to die.”She remembers wives and mothers crying for their sons and husbands as they departed the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston for the African country, out of fear that their family members would not return home alive. “But we went, we saw and we conquered,” she says proudly.The trip to Liberia was even more terrifying and life threatening, she recalls.“We thought we would not survive. Everybody wanted to come home, some people cried and said they wouldn’t make it, that they want to go back to Jamaica,” she says.But, it was in Darfur, where she spent two years, that she was to make a significant impact. A province of Sudan, Darfur, since 2003, has been ravaged by ongoing guerilla conflicts, with killings, torture, rape, and destruction of homes and farms, stemming from long-standing tension between the country’s black population and the nomadic Arabs.Despite international outrage, Darfur remains one of the world’s worst human rights and humanitarian catastrophes.With more than 2.7 million people having fled their homes, and living in camps around Darfur’s main towns, with little access to basic amenities, DSP Smith-Whyte explains that it was a complete culture shock when she arrived in the country. “Darfur, I can tell you, (it is like) the beginning of time,” she relates. “This was where we got the real experience of mission life.”She says that during her stay in Darfur, all 100 female peacekeepers shared a massive tent.DSP Smith-Whyte says that the inhumane and disrespectful manner in which women are treated in the Sudanese region broke her heart. “My first day out in the village, I returned to my tent and I cried uncontrollably,” she says.She explains that in Darfur if it is suspected that a woman is having an extramarital affair, she is mutilated. “A limb is cut off and she is left to die,” she says. “One hundred per cent female mutilation and circumcision is practiced in Darfur and they (do not have access) to medical services. They use hot water and scissors, a razor blade, a piece of old knife or anything that is sharp to do that job and it is up to the woman to survive or bleed to death.”The deputy superintendent says she and the other Jamaican peacekeepers, particularly the women, did everything they could to make the lives of the women of Darfur a little bit easier during their stay in the country.While in Darfur, DSP Smith-Whyte was selected to serve as a Team Fight Commander, a position equivalent to a Divisional Commander in Jamaica and the highest rank any Jamaican woman peacekeeper has achieved so far. She says that her selection was greeted with some opposition. “I was told that I would not succeed, because this is a patriarchal society and no woman can come here and make it,” she says.She reveals that during the mission, she visited the town of Tawila, which has been dubbed ‘Deadly Tawila’ because of the horrific acts of violence that occur in that area. “Tawila has a number of rebel groups and only one of the groups signed the Darfur peace agreement, all the others are against the UN,” she says. “So our task, as UN peacekeepers, was to get them onboard to be a part of the peace agreement,” she says.DSP Smith-Whyte explains however that because of the known viciousness and fearlessness of the rebel groups in Tawila, her team members refused to accompany her on patrols into the area. “This was understandable because of the difficult nature of Darfur. You could go out and never come back, you could be kidnapped, that has taken place quite frequently,” she says.“So, I took it on myself to go out,” she says. “I said to myself, ‘my Government sent me here and I have to do something in Darfur before I go back home.”The Team Fight Commander arranged a meeting with the military commander in Darfur and begged him to accompany her to meet with the rebel groups. “The commander said ‘yes I will come with you to meet the rebels’ and from the 90 police officers that I commanded in Darfur, only one volunteered to come with me.“Even the one language assistant that we had said he would not come with us, because the rebel group that we were going to meet was very feared,” she says.DSP Smith-Whyte says that as they neared the location of the rebels, the members began to surround her team.“We were down in a valley and we started seeing all the rebel vehicles start coming in and positioning themselves strategically. My heart was (beating fast). I said ‘Lord this seems to be my last day on earth, why did I come?” she recalls.She says the members of the rebel group began to push them around, interrogating them and intimidating them with guns. “I was fearful and nervous,” she says. .but when the time came for me to talk and I introduced myself as a Jamaican and told them that the Jamaican Government sent me there, they said ‘you stop there my sister, you are welcomed.”DSP says from that first meeting she was able to develop a relationship with the rebel groups and their leaders in Darfur, which eventually led to them signing a peace treaty with the UN. She says she developed a reputation as an efficient and capable Jamaican peacekeeper and did much to raise the Jamaica flag even higher.“We have no idea in Jamaica, what Jamaica means to people abroad. You tell someone you are Jamaican and 50 per cent of your job is done, we need to protect that,” she implores.Chief Unda She says at the end of her two years in Darfur (her stay was extended an extra year) the same men she was told would never accept her, held a demonstration to convince the authorities to again extend her term. “They called me Chief Unda’, that is the name they called the men in the highest rank, that is what they started calling me. Me, who they said would not have succeeded because I am a woman, but I set out in my mind that I would make a difference, because I am a Jamaican.”DSP Smith-Whyte says her aim is to not only help to bring peace and security to war-torn countries around the globe, but to also inspire women and girls from all walks of life. She also wants young Jamaican girls to know that deep down inside, no matter their socio-economic background or educational achievements, they all possess the ability to accomplish their dreams and overcome life’s obstacles.Jamaica’s participation in UN peacekeeping missions began in the 1980s with 23 Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) officers deployed to Namibia. Since then, Jamaica has increased its presence to having its nationals serve under the UN flag in some of the most difficult and hostile areas of the earth.Over 60 peacekeepers from Jamaica, since 1989, have joined the UN and contributed substantially in bringing peace and stability to troubled countries around the globe.Members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) have participated in peacekeeping missions across the globe, including in El Salvador, Liberia, Lebanon, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Namibia. They have been engaged in tasks such as promoting reconciliation, strengthening the security sector and the rule of law and supporting democratic elections.The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade in collaboration with the JCF recently hosted Jamaica’s first official ceremony to commemorate the International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers. The Day is celebrated annually on May 29.The Jamaican peacekeepers were presented with certificates in honour of their invaluable contribution to various UN peacekeeping missions.

Portia Simpson Miller, pays tribute to the late former Governor-General, His Excellency the Most Hon. Sir Howard Cooke, during a joint sitting of the Senate and the House of Representatives, on July 23. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail center_img The late former Governor-General, His Excellency the Most Hon. Sir Howard Cooke, was remembered at a joint sitting of the Houses of Parliament on Wednesday, July 23, for his unyielding and sterling contribution to nation-building for almost seven decades.In a colourful tribute, Members of Parliament and Senators warmly recounted their memories of Sir Howard, who died on July 11. He was 98-years-old.Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, described the late former Governor-General as an “esteemed public servant”, who dedicated his entire life to nation building and service.“He was teacher, trade unionist, insurance manager, Member of Parliament, Senator, Government Minister, lay pastor and Governor-General,” she said. “Indeed, along Sir Howard’s journey from cane fields to King’s House, he came to manifest the qualities of a man for all seasons,” she added.Mrs. Simpson Miller noted that of all the titles to which he was referred, ‘Teacher Cooke,’ was his favourite, as he had a burning desire to educate his Jamaican people, which lent itself naturally to nation building.“For him, political representation was not an end within itself, but a means of service in the pursuit of people’s development,” the Prime Minister said.She noted that as Minister of Education, Sir Howard was responsible for fundamental change in the governance of the islands’ schools and colleges.Mrs. Simpson Miller informed that under his watch, Boards of management were more democratically constituted with the inclusion of staff representation, and in some cases, student representatives as well.“We can also thank Sir Howard for introducing community colleges as an element in the restructuring of our tertiary education system,” the Prime Minister said.Leader of the Opposition, Andrew Holness, said the late former Governor-General served Jamaica and by extension, the region, in virtually every aspect of national and political life – from civil activism to founding party member.“He was a giant of a man. He was a dedicated nation builder, revered public servant and shining example of excellence that all generations that follow should strive to emulate,” he said.In his contribution, President of the Senate, Floyd Morris, said the passing of Sir Howard is a major loss for the country, as it will be impossible to replace such a “stellar Jamaican.”However, he noted that Jamaicans can find comfort in the fact that the former teacher spent over seven decades of his life giving selfless service to his nation.Meanwhile, Speaker of the House, Hon. Michael Peart, said Sir Howard was a man who gave the fullest of himself to all his endeavours.“We will all remember him for his contributions to various sectors of Jamaican life, including education, youth, community development, sports and government,” he said.Other tributes came from Minister of Land, Water, Environment and Climate Change, Hon. Robert Pickersgill; Minister of Finance and Planning, Dr. the Hon. Peter Phillips; Information Minister, Senator the Hon. Sandrea Falconer; Minister of Tourism and Entertainment, Hon. Dr. Wykeham McNeill; State Minister in the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Julian Robinson; Government Senator, K.D. Knight; Member of Parliament for East St. Andrew, Andre Hylton; Opposition Spokesman for Water and Housing, Horace Chang; Leader of Opposition Business in the Senate, Tom Tavares-Finson; Opposition Spokesman for Health,  Dr. Kenneth Baugh; Opposition Senator, Marlene Malahoo-Forte; and Member of Parliament for North East St. Andrew, Delroy Chuck.The Members of Parliament and Senators also emphasised and lauded Sir Howard’s commitment and dedication to his widow, Lady Cooke, and their three children. Members of the Cooke family were present at the sitting.The State Funeral for the late former Governor-General will be held on Friday, August 8 at the Holy Trinity Cathedral, 1 George Headley Drive, Kingston, starting 10:00 a.m. Interment will follow in National Heroes Park.

Verizon gets on board with device upgrade plan

first_img Previous ArticleMicrosoft takes $900M charge on tablet misstepsNext ArticleWeak Europe takes its toll on Vodafone numbers Amazon reels in MGM The largest operator in the US, Verizon Wireless, has followed AT&T and T-Mobile in announcing a tariff that enables consumers to upgrade to a new handset during the standard two-year contract, an expected response to its rivals.Under the Verizon Edge plan, a consumer must pay the retail cost of a phone in 24 monthly installments, alongside their monthly service change. However, an upgrade to a new phone is possible after six months if 50 per cent of its retail cost has been paid off by the user.After the old phone has been handed in, the consumer is not due for any more payments on it, and starts the same process again with a new device.Unlike AT&T and T-Mobile, the Verizon scheme is also available for featurephones and not just smartphones.Despite speculation to the contrary, Verizon Edge does not require any additional subscription beyond a consumer’s existing subscription.However, the Verizon Wireless plan, which launches 25 August, has been criticised for offering insufficient inducement for consumers to change tariff.“You’d have to be out of your mind,” to accept this offer, said Moffett Research analyst Craig Moffett in a Bloomberg report.“The plans Verizon and AT&T are talking about where they’re cutting subsidies upfront without lowering the service price are unlikely to have any impact in the market whatsoever,” he said.Speaking at yesterday’s results, Verizon CFO Fran Shammo said the new plan would not impact future financials. He did not expect a large percentage of customers to opt for the tariff.Shammo’s comments were covered by The Verge, whose report was linked to by John Legere, T-Mobile’s frequently outspoken CEO, with the tweeted comment: “What! We actually agree? They all want Jump [T-Mobile’s equivalent tariff]. Verizon CFO doesn’t think most people will sign up for Edge”.

PhD Position, Theory and Empirics Applied to Women, Amsterdam

first_img ← European residency programme for cultural journalists It really isn’t aywals about your degree. Let’s say that you did very well in your Masters and barely scraped by your PhD, it’s not going to be as good as someone who graduated with honors in their Masters and didn’t do a PhD. There is no standard because employers don’t hire you for a piece of paper. They interview you to see if you’re a great fit, if your personality meshes with that type of work or environment, how your references look etc. They don’t hire you for what you have, but it’s definitely a way to get in the door. Share 0 Similar Stories Deadline: 10 July, 2012Open to: candidates with a Master’s or Research Master’s Degree in one of the social sciences  Remuneration: € 2,042 in the first year and € 2,612 in the fourth yearDescriptionThe AISSR and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology are looking for a PhD candidate  for the research project “CITE women: Changing Institutions – Theory and Empirics Applied to Women in the Top”, directed by Dr. Klarita Gërxhani and financed by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).The PhD project is partly funded by NWO-ASPASIA and will be carried out at the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR), Programme Group Institutions, Inequalities and Internationalisation.This project aims to investigate how institutions come about and what makes them change. Point of departure are individuals wishing to change institutions like labour laws. The main research question is: How may individuals wishing to change institutions set about doing so and what determines their likelihood of success?Following the tradition in analytical sociology the project focuses on the mechanisms underlying relations between: (i) micro-level individual decisions; (ii) meso-level organizational processes; and (iii) the macro-level institutional setup. The interest is in whether and how organizations mediate when individuals want to change institutions.More in particular, the project will address the following questions:*  What explains the divergence in success when individuals try to change institutions?*  What mechanisms determine whether meso-level organizations mediate in individual attempts at institutional change?*  What mechanisms affect the likelihood that mediating organizations will succeed in changing institutions?While the theory aims at applicability to a wide range of institutional changes, the empirical application on employment quota provides a suitable testbed. Three countries will serve as specific cases to test the theory’s predictions. For a stress-test, one country is chosen where institutions on women’s board representation have substantially changed (Norway), one with less change (the Netherlands), and one without change (Poland).PhD Project: Micro-Meso-Macro EmpiricsThe main objective of this project is to study how the interaction between individuals in a firm affects the likelihood that the firm will mediate in attempts to change institutions. It will do so by looking at the relationships between individuals’ value orientations and firm’s social norms, and between these norms and the firm’s formal rules, in each of the three countries. This will be addressed by collecting and analyzing field survey data from employers and employees of randomly selected firms in each country e.g., using data banks of national chambers of commerce or branch organizations. These data will be used to explain cross-firm variations (per country) in the extent of mediation by cross-firm differences in the relationships between individuals’ value orientations and organizations’ social norms, and between these social norms and the organizations’ formal rules.Possibly, the project will be extended to investigate how social mobilization between the firm and other organizations (e.g., trade unions, political parties, women lobby groups) affects the likelihood of successful institutional change. This will be addressed by combining the field survey data with in-depth interviews in each country with key informants from firms (e.g., female board professionals), unions, political parties, women’s lobbies, churches, etc.EligibilityThe eligible candidate should have the following qualifications:Master’s or Research Master’s Degree in one of the social sciences (or expectation of completion before the starting date of the project);Affinity with quantitative and qualitative methods and techniques in the social sciences;Interest in interdisciplinary research;Willingness to give English-language presentations, to publish in the English language, and to teach in the Field of Social Sciences (in English as well);Language competencies in other languages than Dutch or English will be considered as an advantageThe position will be on a temporary basis for the period of 3 or 4 years (12 months plus a further 24 or 36 months after a positive evaluation and depending on the preparatory training). The project will start in the fall of 2012. The gross monthly salary will be € 2,042 in the first year and € 2,612 in the fourth year in the case of a full-time position (38 hrs / week). Secondary benefits at Dutch universities are attractive and include 8% holiday pay and an 8.3% end of year bonus.ApplicationApplications, in the form of a motivation letter and a full CV (including the names and contact details of two references from which information about the candidate can be obtained) must be sent by e-mail to [email protected] applications should bear the text: PhD research project “CITE women” in the subject line and should contain the documents as an attachment (pdf).Further inquires concerning the project itself can be obtained from Dr. Klarita Gërxhani ([email protected]).For more information regarding the AISSR, go here.For more information regarding the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, see here.The deadline is 10 July, 2012.The Official Website June 21, 2012 Published by ruzica +1 LinkedIn 0 By Sovan says: PhD Position in Computational Social Choice at the University of Amsterdam The World Press Photo Digital Storytelling Contest on August 31, 2013 at 2:57 am Conny Kristel Fellowship Call 2018 Log in to Reply PhD Position, Theory and Empirics Applied to Women, Amsterdam Pocket One thought on “PhD Position, Theory and Empirics Applied to Women, Amsterdam” Reddit Tweet Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
