He also demonstrated how trees should be planted and requested several students to plant trees.At the end of the exercise, School Prefect, DeAndrew Moore thanked Jamalco and the Forestry Department for the information. “We now have a better understanding of how to take care of our environment,” he said.Principal of the school, Mr. Owen Lambert, said that the presentation was comprehensive and “the students obviously benefitted, because of the energy they displayed during the feedback session.”The Jamalco/Forestry Department’s MoU is the second to be signed between the two entities under a strategic partnership, aimed at preserving and enhancing Jamaica’s agro forestry.The MoU has been expanded to facilitate the continuation of work which started seven years ago to significantly increase Jamaica’s forest cover.A public education programme in communities in Jamalco’s operating areas is also an important aspect of the MoU.

The legislation mandates a “right of withdrawal” where a purchaser can receive a refund for a purchase for 14 days after they make it unless they knowingly waive that right. In this case, stores such as Steam, Origin, and the PS Store at the time did not include a checkbox asking the user to consent to losing the right of withdrawal.The complaint was dropped for all companies involved save for Nintendo, which is being taken to court in Germany this year over its eshop policy (as reported by Eurogamer), which does not allow cancellation of pre-orders at all. The case is not expected to be resolved until fall of this year.Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Publishing & Retail newsletter and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.
