Four-star Jahkeem Green, who spent the last two years at Highland Community College, appears all set to join the Huskers.According to Hail Varsity, Green has reaffirmed his commitment to the Huskers, and will be able to join the team in the fall once his academic requirements are fulfilled. Green made a verbal commitment to Nebraska in April, but did not sign a letter of intent. This, in turn, allowed him to continue visiting other schools.Green made the Huskers nervous this summer when he took an official visit to Texas Tech. Per the report, Oklahoma attempted to recruit him as well.But Green ultimately decided to stick with Nebraska, and will join the team this coming year if his schoolwork checks out.last_img read more

Minister says Global Tourism Has Changed

According to Mr. Bartlett, tourism processes, tools, structures, systems and actors are no longer the same, and to the point where the industry is now being “reimagined”. Story Highlights Minister of Tourism, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, says global tourism has taken on an extraordinary new lease on life, where almost everything is now done outside of what was once considered the norm. “It is being radically reviewed, reorganised and remade. I dare say that Jamaica too has played her part in this tourism reimagined exercise, through our engagements with global partners,” the Minister told JIS News in an interview. Minister of Tourism, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, says global tourism has taken on an extraordinary new lease on life, where almost everything is now done outside of what was once considered the norm.According to Mr. Bartlett, tourism processes, tools, structures, systems and actors are no longer the same, and to the point where the industry is now being “reimagined”.“It is being radically reviewed, reorganised and remade. I dare say that Jamaica too has played her part in this tourism reimagined exercise, through our engagements with global partners,” the Minister told JIS News in an interview.Mr. Bartlett said that in reimagining a destination, “we have to look at areas such as strengthening linkages, promulgating human capital development, piloting the largest wave of product expansion, and also enhancing the use of technology and the Internet”.He added that it also includes effecting a more comprehensive destination assurance programme, improved private- and public-sector stakeholder collaboration, and incorporating innovation in the mix.Mr. Bartlett further informed that tourism has become such a mega global industry that the annual number of tourists crossing international borders was estimated at 1.4 billion in 2018, generating US$1.3 trillion.He said that the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) global tourism data indicate that travel and tourism represented 10.4 per cent of global gross domestic product (GDP), creating one in 10 jobs, which is 10 per cent of global employment amounting to 319 million jobs.“Caribbean destinations welcomed 29.9 million international visitors in 2018. This represents the second highest number of visitors to the Caribbean on record, surpassed only by the 30.6 million who visited in 2017. In fact, one in five of workers in the Caribbean is employed to the tourism sector, contributing 40 per cent of the region’s GDP,” the Minister noted. read more
