Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, June 23 (JIS): The Government has commenced distributing equipment and plants to coffee farmers in the Blue Mountain Ridge, whose crops were destroyed by recent fires.This was made possible through the $25 million allocated by the Government to assist the affected farmers.Under the rehabilitation project, a total of 20 farmers have received support varying from 650-gallon water tanks to coffee seedlings. The programme will be carried out over 10 months, with 900 seedlings to be planted per acre on farms that were destroyed by the fires.Minister of Agriculture, Labour and Social Security, Hon. Derrick Kellier, who handed over the items to the farmers, today (June 23), at the St. Andrew Parish office of the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA), said support is also available to farmers whose bananas and plantains were affected by fires in other parishes, such as St. Thomas and Portland.Noting that with the recent rains, some crops have begun to “bounce back,” the Minister said farmers have been working tirelessly to minimise the effects of fires. “We at the Ministry are committed to continue to work along with them and to facilitate our farmers,” he added. Mr. Kellier said in addition to the recovery support, he will be leading a team through the Flamstead and Tower Hill/Lime Tree communities of St. Andrew, where they will “participate in a tree-planting exercise, as part of our endeavour to encourage the farmers.”Reiterating the need for responsible farming, the Minister said burning of solid waste and bushes must not be done, as this affects the livelihood of communities. “It is too costly to repair the damage, and it inhibits our ability to export crops that you lose,” he emphasised. The assistance programme is being managed by RADA, in collaboration with the Coffee Industry Board (CIB), and the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS). For farmers to benefit, they must be registered with RADA.Some 96 acres of coffee were destroyed in St. Andrew, St. Thomas and Portland, with another 303 acres affected in three parishes. Losses to small farmers amounted to $93 million.

Your mane is an accessory to your personality and hence making right decision about how to manage it is very essential. No matter how old you are, your hair can always make you look attractive. We spoke with Neeldavid Katwal, an international celebrity hairstylist, about the best hairstyles to keep you looking and feeling sexy at any age. Here are few options for you to consider: In 20’s This is the time to be daring and experiment with every style. Your hair grows fast and can mend all the damages with a little help from your side. So, you can grow your hair long and then go for an edgy cut and chop it into a short bob. You can also try straightening, curling your hair, or colour it the way you want. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfHairstyles for this age: Edgy asymmetrical cut, pixie-cut, long-bob, shoulder-length hair, long-wavy tresses, layered long hair. Braids of different styles (French braid, boho chic braid, side-braid), top-knot, braided up do, ballerina-bun (for round faces), horse-tail. In 30’s Generally women get busy with their family or career or both at this age. But that shouldn’t stop you from looking sexy. You can still maintain long hair. If you have little kids to take care of after a long day at office, go for shoulder length hair that can be tied up in a pony when you are at home. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveHairstyles for this age: Long hair with youthful bangs and locks, bed-head bob, shag-hairstyle, chin-length, pixie-cut, wavy-bob, long beach-waves. You can keep your hair open as it makes you look younger. However, for comfort and styling you can go for ponytails, top-knots or classy buns. In 40’s Do not be afraid of your age and go for the hair-cut you want to have. Keep your hair long and wavy to redefine your sex-appeal or go for short and sleek hair to highlight your sporty-healthy mood. But your hair tend to get brittle at this stage. So take proper care. Hot oil treatment once a week and hair-spa twice a month is really a must. Hairstyles for this age: Layered hair of different lengths look amazing. If you have the confidences go for pompadour and quiff styles, edgy cuts, curled up shoulder length hair. Long wavy hair also looks cool. You can keep your short hair open and flaunt them all the time. If you have your hair long, messy braids and buns will make you look younger. In 50’s Analyse the nature of hair and be honest. You can keep long or short hair depending on the health of your hair. Ideally a shoulder length hair with slightly angled layers looks perfect. Short hair with length in the sides and top of the head diverts the attention from facial imperfections like wrinkles and fine-lines. Hairstyles for this age – Angled shoulder length hair with layers, short chic hair, long-straight hair look amazing at this age. If you have long hair which is thinning and look dull if kept open, go for a clean side bun which is perfect for your age. In 60’s You want to enjoy a comfortable retired life at this stage. So pick a style that needs low maintenance and go for easy-going short hairstyles. Choose a good salon where you can get a well-fashioned hair which will help to enhance your good features and hide the age and flaws. In 70’s and 80’s You don’t have to follow a rule anymore. Follow anything that makes you feel comfortable and happy. If there is something you always wanted to try, this is the right time. read more
