first_img Share 15 Views   no discussions NewsRegional Give CSME More Credit, says CARICOM Secretary General by: – July 5, 2017 Share Sharecenter_img Tweet CARICOM SECRETARY GENERAL IRWIN LAROCQUE(Barbados Today) ST GEORGE’S, Grenada, Tuesday July 4, 2017 – The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Single Market and Economy (CSME) is not getting the credit it deserves for all it achieves, according to the 15-member grouping’s top public servant.CARICOM Secretary General Irwin LaRocque yesterday admitted that the CSME was seen by many as a waste of time, but said this was simply because the people of the region did not know enough about the achievements.“There are always a few things I can say that we can do better, but I think we are doing not too badly . . . . So we have to do a better job at communication, basically, both from the standpoint of the Secretariat as well as the member states. I regret that people see it as a waste of time. I don’t think it is. Absolutely not,” LaRoque told a news conference in Grenada to announce the agenda for the CARICOM Heads of Government summit which officially starts this evening.“It is constant communication to the people of the region in terms of what we are doing, what we are achieving and how we are going forward. Sometimes we take for granted what it is that we are doing,” he added.CARICOM is yet to achieve the second phase of the integration process, which includes harmonized economic policy.However, LaRocque said at the last summit, the leaders had taken stock of the CSME, and a roadmap was being prepared to help countries that were “lagging behind in certain areas”.“We are in discussion with them on time frames that need to be adhered to. That does not mean that the rights and obligations that member states have by virtue of the Treaty of Chaguaramas, or by decisions taken, [are] negated,” he said.The Secretary General said the Georgetown, Guyana-headquartered Secretariat and the member countries have an obligation to inform the general public “what is going on and how they are benefiting from it in terms of functional corporation in a vast number of areas – education, health, our advocacy in the international community”.LaRocque announced that the leaders’ three-day summit will have a heavy emphasis on tourism, human resource development and entrepreneurship.Other matters on the packed agenda include crime and security, border issues, health, climate adaptation, renewable energy, and Brexit.

Mungkin jika Anda begadang merasa ngantuk di wajarkan, tapi jika tidur cukup dan masih merasa ngantuk ada sesuatu hal yang tak wajar. KabarPenumpang.com merangkum dari berbagai sumber, ada berbagai macam hal yang menyebabkan Anda sering mengantuk walaupun tidur cukup. 1. Punya beban pikiran Bila normalnya seseorang yang mengantuk ada masalah kesehatan fisik, tapi juga tidak menutup kemungkinan kondisi hati atau perasaan sedang kurang baik pula. Mungkin Anda punya beban pikiran yang cukup banyak baik itu keluarga maupun soal asmara.2. Kurang darahKurang darah atau anemia bisa menyebabkan lemah, letih, lesu, lelah, lunglai dan lemas. Kantuk sendiri juga bisa terjadi karena anemia. Sebab biasanya kekurangan darah juga menyebabkan kurangnya zat besi dalam tubuh. Sehingga sel darah merah yang di perlukan untuk mengantarkan oksigen ke seluruh tubuh juga berkurang sehingga kantuk menyerang.3. Kurang olahraga dan aktivitas paling banyak dudukSebagian besar masyarakat modern lebih banyak duduk di depan laptop atau komputer. Bukan hanya pekerja kantoran, pelajar pun juga sering. Sebenarnya kebanyak duduk tidaklah menyehatkan, apalagi seharian dengan jangka waktu delapan jam atau lebih.Lebih banyak duduk dan kurang olahraga bisa mengakibatkan kurang lancarnya perdaran darah sehingga oksigen ke otak tidak banyak. Untuk itu, baiknya lakukan gerakan olahraga ringan untuk membantu memperlancar aliran darah.4.Terjangkit diabetesPederita diabetes memiliki kadar glukosa yang tinggi. Efeknya adalah tubuh lebih mudah mengantuk dan lelah. Ini bisa terjadi pada Anda karena asupan tinggi karboohidrat dan gula dalam makanan dan kemungkinan kantuk Anda karena diabetes.5. Tubuh kekurangan cairanAir adalah kebutuhan terpenting dalam kehidupan. Biasakan minum air putih jangan minum minuman lain. Bila Anda mengalami dehidrasi, metabolisme tubuh kurang optimal, kecepatan jantung melambat untuk mengirim oksigen dan sulit konsentrasi karena 85 persen otak terdiri dari air.Baca juga: Aplikasi ini Dirancang Untuk Sadarkan Pengemudi Lelah dan Mengantuk6. Kebanyakan makanMakan yang berlebihan atau sampai kekenyangan bisa juga menyebabkan kantuk. Sebab makanan yang banyak masuk dalam tubuh, insulin yang dibutuhkan juga harus banyak. Sedangkan pankreas tidak bisa memenuhi kebutuhan tersebut. Sehingga tubuh kelelahan karena beban terlalu berat untuk di olah dan memberikan reaksi mengantuk untuk mengolah semua makanan.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedHelm Ini Dapat Sadarkan Anda Ketika Mulai Mengantuk!11/12/2018In “Darat”Anda Malu Ngorok di Angkutan Umum?
