Serving with a big salad is great because that can be ready too — just add dressing last minute. That way they can have a cocktail or two and be stress free! The beauty of Trident Wild Alaska Pollock Skillet Cuts is that they come in bite-sized pieces if you don’t want to skin and chop the fish. Super simple to poach and add to your sauce!”Ingredients:3 leeks1/4 c butter1/2 c dry white wine or dry vermouth1 c frozen peas2 Tbsp flour2 c chicken stock4 (three-ounce) fillets Wild Alaska Pollock, cut into one-inch chunks1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawedDirections:Preheat oven to 425°F. Slice the leeks in half the long way, and then slice into quarter-inch half-moons. Rinse the sliced leeks in cold water and drain to remove any silt. Melt two tablespoons butter in a sauté pan, and cook the leeks over medium heat until they become soft and fragrant, about seven minutes. Add white wine and bring to boil to burn off the alcohol. Remove from heat, add the peas, and set aside.Melt the remaining two tablespoons of butter in a saucepan or skillet. Stir in the flour and cook for two to three minutes. Slowly whisk in the chicken stock, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens, about three minutes. Add the pea and leek mixture and Wild Alaska Pollock, and simmer for one minute.Spoon the mixture into a greased eight-inch casserole dish. Remove the pastry from freezer and gently unfold onto a floured work surface just enough to smooth out creases. The pastry may take a minute or two to soften. Roll the pastry gently so that it is large enough to fit over dish with some overhang. Drape the puff pastry sheet over the filling and crimp the edges under the side of the dish to create a seal. Cut two or more vents in the center of the crust.Set the casserole dish on a baking sheet and cook on center rack for 25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown. Share
The ACCSEAS Second Annual Conference takes place next week in Edinburgh, Scotland, with an array of maritime organisations from around the globe convening to discuss the work of ACCSEAS in developing a test-bed of e-navigation solutions to help keep mariners safe when navigating the increasingly busy shipping waters of the North Sea Region.Organisations confirmed as attending the ACCSEAS Conference include the International Chamber of Shipping, Danish Maritime Authority, Inmarsat, Royal Association of Netherlands Shipowners, Kongsberg Seatex AS, Swedish Maritime Administration, Saga Shipping and the European Commission, to name just a few of the navigation authorities, service providers and end users that will be present. The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Evolving Navigation in the North Sea Region’.The Conference will be officially opened by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal and will be chaired by Rear Admiral Nick Lambert, previous Hydrographer of the Royal Navy.Dr Alwyn Williams, ACCSEAS Project Manager said: “The waters of the North Sea Region are forecast to become increasingly congested, with an estimated 50% increase on the number of ship movements by 2020+. Likewise, the navigable space taken up by wind farms could increase from 440km2 to 23,500 km2 in just a few years. This poses significant safety concerns for vessels in the North Sea, which already has some of the world’s busiest shipping lanes.“The Conference offers an excellent opportunity to explore what is being done by ACCSEAS to develop a test-bed of services to support the mariner and unlock the potential for sustainable and effective e-navigation solutions in the North Sea Region. This year’s event includes a wealth of expert speakers and I am confident that this event will be of enormous value to all participants.”The Conference will also host a series of workshops that will discuss the future of e-navigation training, the future provision of e-navigation services, including the concept of the Maritime Cloud, and the impact of e-navigation on the wider logistics chain.The ACCSEAS Conference is taking place over three days from 4th to 6th March at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh, Scotland, and is free to attend.[mappress]ACCSEAS, February 27, 2014

Nearly 100 Crown court centres across the country have been thrown into ‘chaos’ after an IT system designed to transform court procedures stopped working this morning.The system, XHIBIT, provides real-time information on the progress of hearings to interested parties outside the courtroom and records the outcome of court proceedings, including any sentence.HM Courts & Tribunals Service said the XHIBIT system was currently down due to a failure at supplier CGI’s data centre. The system has been down since 8am but the Gazette was told the outage was not affecting court business and that the company is working to get the problem fixed as soon as possible.XHIBIT, introduced in 2006, was described by HMCTS as the ‘first step in joining up the criminal justice system’.It sends vital hearing information from the courtroom to police, victims and witnesses, probation, Crown Prosecution Service, prisons, magistrates’ courts and youth offending teams.HMCTS states on the Ministry of Justice’s website that ‘paper records and handwritten logs will be a thing of the past as court clerks record Crown court events as they happen using new technology in every court’.Potential benefits, it says, include increased visibility of hearing progression and reduced solicitor waiting times.However, a National Audit Office report from 2009 into the administration of the Crown court highlighted concerns expressed by almost all court staff interviewed over XHIBIT’s reliability and speed.Over half of court managers and judges, in their 2007-8 annual court reports, raised issues about XHIBIT, in particular that the system ran too slowly or ‘crashed’, especially on Mondays and Fridays when the courts were processing a significantly higher number of cases.London’s Doughty Street Chambers said that, apart from today’s inconvenience, there could now be other problems on the horizon.’For example, when we submit bills to the Legal Aid Agency for work done today, they will be using court records to verify those claims,’ said Maurice MacSweeney, business development director of Doughty Street Chambers’ crime team. ‘So it’s only some way down the line that all the ramifications of today’s IT problems will be fully known.’

LifestyleLocalNews Reparations Committee Wants Reparations to Pay for Education by: – December 31, 2019 Share Sharing is caring! Share Tweet 226 Views no discussions Share Franklyn Georges of Dominica Reparations CommitteeThe Dominica Reparations Committee says it hopes to re-educate Dominican youth in 2020.The purpose of the nine-member committee is to establish the moral, ethical and legal case for the payment of reparations by the former colonial European countries, to the native and people of the Caribbean community, for native genocide, the transatlantic slave trade and a racialized system of chattel slavery.In an interview with Dominica Vibes, Franklyn Georges of the Dominica Reparations Committee, says that he hopes to see the committee’s funds channeled into the re-education of youth.“I’m talking about education where our children could go to university, get educated also, get re-educated that they can carry on the work that we are doing. We want to re-educate our children that one day they will take their rightful place,” Georges pleaded.He also believes that the youth are misinformed about reparations, stating that, “Our children are miseducated, they don’t really understand the word ‘reparation’, and they think it’s just to give them money. I hope that in the coming years and in the coming time, we educate our people and we get more committed people on the Reparations Committee to do the work and also to work with the rest of the world.”
Tweet EducationLocalNews Roseau Public Library Envisioned to Link Literacy and Art by: – January 16, 2020 Share 101 Views no discussions The Roseau Public Library is on the agenda for reformation in the Roseau Enhancement Project.The public library building was made unusable by the 2017 hurricane and the service is being offered from the second floor of a building on Kennedy Avenue.Hon Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit who is also Minister for Planning, Finance and Sustainable Development revealed details of the idea for the library at a meeting of stakeholders in the capital on Monday evening.He acknowledges a failing in not establishing a new purpose-built home for the library in the previous term as prime minister.Hon Skerrit says the future could be a library system that marries education, literacy, art and culture.“One of my greatest disappointments is that we did not get to build a modern library at the time that we should have built it. The intention then was to build it when we were building the State House and the State College,” he revealed.“I wanted to build something that even if you couldn’t read or write, you would want to go into the library and see what’s happening in there.”Hon Skerrit proposed, “Why don’t we tie in a centre for the performing arts and have a recording studio for the public. We need to discuss the issue of the construction of a centre for the performing arts in Dominica.”He listed ballet, steel pan, and other arts as needing designated teaching and practice facilities.He described them as major sources of foreign exchange.
