The Government is being accused of disrespecting the office of the Opposition Leader by allowing the telephone services to remain disconnected for the past two weeks.

The matter was raised in the House of Representatives yesterday by Member of Parliament for South West St Catherine, Everald Warmington.

Warmington told the House that the telephone at the office of the Leader of Opposition, Andrew Holness was disconnected because of the non-payment of bills.

He said the office was never treated in that manner when the Jamaica Labour Party was in Government.

House Leader, Phillip Paulwell, has given his commitment to resolve the issue.

The Police Fraud Squad is now investigating the employee of a bank who is accused of fleecing millions of dollars from an entertainer's account.

But while investigations are ongoing, the popular local entertainer is accusing the institution of moving too slowly to compensate him.

The attorney representing the entertainer yesterday stated that the banking institution has failed to honour its financial obligations to his client, leaving him deprived of access to millions of dollars which he legitimately lodged to his account.

Information reaching our news team is that the entertainer deposited the money over time to his account through a specific female employee at the institution.

Reports are that the employee had been advising the entertainer for over a year and advised him how to invest his money. She is said to have then signed off on documents advising her client that everything was taken care of.

The attorney said that his client was under the impression that he had been receiving 'special treatment' from his personal banker and had never joined a queue whenever he visited the bank, on the advice of the woman.

The discrepancies were said to have been unearthed last month when the entertainer visited the bank, and had to join a line because the woman was not at work.

The attorney stated that "He has two accounts and would normally leave the books with her and collect them a few days later, at which point he would check and it appeared that things were normal. While he was at another teller, he was told that one of the books he thought was a US account was not a US book, but in fact Jamaican ... The number coding in the books were different, but my client didn't look to see."

Additionally, it was outlined that the entertainer was misled as none of the investments he made were there.

Our news team was told that since the discovery the entertainer has been receiving the run-around from the local bank in his attempt to reclaim his funds. It is said that he has been compelled to make contact with the bank's head legal officer.

Yesterday, a Fraud Squad detective confirmed that an investigation has been launched.

Our news team was also told that it was the bank who contacted the police. We were told, however, that the female banker in question was not yet in police custody as the investigations are ongoing.

The History of Palm Sunday

he-is-risen.jpg
The celebration of Palm Sunday originated in the Jerusalem Church, around the late fourth century. The early Palm Sunday ceremony consisted of prayers, hymns, and sermons recited by the clergy while the people walked to various holy sites throughout the city. At the final site, the place where Christ ascended into heaven, the clergy would read from the gospels concerning the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. In the early evening they would return to the city reciting: "Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord." The children would carry palm and olive branches as the people returned through the city back to the church, where they would hold evening services.

By the fifth century, the Palm Sunday celebration had spread as far as Constantinople. Changes made in the sixth and seventh centuries resulted in two new Palm Sunday traditions - the ritual blessing of the palms, and a morning procession instead of an evening one. Adopted by the Western Church in the eighth century, the celebration received the name "Dominica in Palmis," or "Palm Sunday".

A Palm Sunday video is a great way to prepare for your church's celebration of Palm Sunday.

The Meaning of Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. The gospels record the arrival of Jesus riding into the city on a donkey, while the crowds spread their cloaks and palm branches on the street and shouted "Hosanna to the Son of David" and "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord" to honor him as their long-awaited Messiah and King.

These Palm Sunday PowerPoints depict scenes and images of Palm Sunday, providing a perfect enhancement to your teaching on this subject.

The significance of Jesus riding a donkey and having his way paved with palm branches is a fulfillment of a prophecy spoken by the prophet Zechariah (Zechariah 9:9). In biblical times, the regional custom called for kings and nobles arriving in procession to ride on the back of a donkey. The donkey was a symbol of peace; those who rode upon them proclaimed peaceful intentions. The laying of palm branches indicated that the king or dignitary was arriving in victory or triumph.

Palm Sunday in Modern Times

Today, Palm Sunday traditions are much the same as they have been since the tenth century. The ceremony begins with the blessing of the palms. The procession follows, then Mass is celebrated, wherein the Passion and the Benediction are sung. Afterwards, many people take the palms home and place them in houses, barns, and fields.

In some countries, palms are placed on the graves of the departed. In colder northern climates, where palm trees are not found, branches of yew, willow, and sallow trees are used. The palms blessed in the ceremony are burned at the end of the day. The ashes are then preserved for next year's Ash Wednesday celebration.

In the simplest of terms, Palm Sunday is an occasion for reflecting on the final week of Jesus' life. It is a time for Christians to prepare their hearts for the agony of His Passion and the joy of His Resurrection.

Tessanne Chin marked another milestone in her life. The Season Five winner of NBC's 'The Voice' now has her own official rum.

Accompanied by her sister, Tami Chynn, and Solid Agency's Marlon Bourke, Tessanne was at an exclusive ceremony at J. Wray & Nephew Limited's corporate office in New Kingston, where the presentation was made.

The occasion was in celebration of the singer's accomplishments and there she was gifted with a one-of-a-kind rum created just for her.

Clearly overwhelmed by J. Wray & Nephew's decision, Chin reflected on the moment she heard the news saying that she was truly honoured.

Admitting to being a lover of Appleton, Chin described the moment as an honour.
