The Special Representative of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Commission to Liberia, Ambassador Tunde Ajisomo, has called for the sponsoring of a proposal that would be geared towards the construction of fully equipped health posts at Liberia’s border communities.According him, these posts would create a sense of belonging to residents of bordering towns and villages.Ambassador Ajisomo also called on the Mano River Union’s (MRU) membership to cooperate and collaborate with the rest of ECOWAS’ member states.He said ECOWAS would work with its members to provide assistance to its host communities. Ambassador Ajisomo made the statement when he paid a courtesy call on Internal Affairs Minister, Morris Dukuly at his Capitol Hill office.During the meeting, the envoy assured the Minister of ECOWAS’ readiness to work closely with the Ministry towards advancing integration projects in Liberia and in the sub-region. In response, Internal Affairs Minister Morris Dukuly recounted the role of ECOWAS, especially in the days of the civil war when countries deployed troops in Liberia. Minister Dukuly welcomed the plan by ECOWAS, saying it would strengthen relationships at the borders and strengthen trade, sustainable development and security. He said it was time to begin building a peaceful infrastructure that included trans-border trade and open markets between MRU countries. The MIA boss told the ECOWAS envoy that discussions are underway that were initiated by the Liberian government to introduce what he called the “MRU Peacebuilding and Reconciliation Trust fund.” The Minister said the MRU Peace building and Reconciliation Trust fund would be supported by all members of the Union.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
It was Samuel Doe that started the construction of the newDefense Ministry building in Congo Town. It was rumored, yet to be proven, that it had an underground access to the Atlantic Ocean. If true, why? Heaven knows. There is one thing we are thankful for. Doe neither ignored nor tore down the National Sports Complex on the ELWA Road. Yes, he overthrew and killed President Tolbert, but he knew that this Chinese gift to Liberia was an invaluable asset that needed to be maintained because it helped enhance the nation’s sports and athletics program, most especially football. But the same Samuel Doe had other thoughts of the Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS) complex near the same ELWA Junction. It was from there that he had broadcast to the Liberian people and the world on April 12, 1980 that he had overthrown the True Whig Party government of Liberia because of “rampant corruption and the failure to manage the affairs of the Liberian people.”Later, Doe decided he did not want that facility used by LBS, because it had been built by the TWP! So, under the watch of his LBS Managing Director, Olivia Shannon, Doe decided to build a new broadcasting house further up in Paynesville, less than a quarter mile to the left of the Cocoa Cola Factory. At the time, the Daily Observer warned that it might be difficult to broadcast from that site because it was too close to the powerful Omega Satellite Tower. But they went ahead with the structure anyway, reaching three stories of solid concrete. Then, Japanese experts told the government that there would be too much interference from the Omega Tower, and that broadcasting from that site would be next to impossible. That was when the GOL abandoned the structure, on which by that time they had spent nearly US$2 million, if not more. For a country that constantly goes hat in hand seeking foreign aid for nearly everything, including food, health—the new, modern ELWA Hospital being the latest—and education—US$65 million needed for the Bridge International School outsourcing project—how can our government afford to spend money like that? The latest is the demolition of this solid concrete National Defense structure, built by excellent builders—the Israelis, who also built the Ducor Intercontinental Hotel, the Treasury Department (now Finance Ministry) and the Executive Mansion. All of these buildings are still standing, over a half century later. We feel deeply saddened by this decision by the present administration to demolish this solid Defense structure. Why did that building have to go? Was it only to satisfy the Chinese? Or to spite Samuel Doe? We prefer to think that neither is the case. Surely, the frugal Chinese know better than to have demanded that that solid concrete structure, costing a staggering US$4 million or more, should be torn down at a cost of US$4 million. We strongly believe the Chinese know better. Nor do we think that despite her differences with all Liberian leaders, from Tubman to Taylor, the current President would go so far as to destroy anything her predecessors erected. Were that the case, it would reinforce people’s perception that the E.J. Roye has not been renovated because it was built by the TWP. Yes, this demolition makes us very, very sad. For the Daily Observer and many others begged the administration NOT to do it. Why hasn’t Ellen listened to us? Oh Power! When one gets power should it mean that one should listen to NO one? Well, thank God for Jesus, who listened to Blind Bartimaeus, to the 10 lepers, to the woman with blood disease. Had he not listened and heard them, they never would have been healed, and He would have denied Himself three strong miracles fundamental to His legacy. The Daily Observer has long pleaded with the government to put the Ministerial Complex in Buzzy Quarter. Now that they have decided to replace the Defense structure with the Ministerial Complex, we seriously wonder whether the government has thought about the traffic from Congo Town, Paynesville, Careysburg, Kakata, the interior and Robertsfield Highway. It is our considered opinion that this demolition is an economic and political tragedy. We earnestly hope and pray that it goes no further than that.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

The officer, whose name has not been released, was taken to Northridge Hospital Medical Center with what were described as moderate injuries. He is expected to recover. Investigators are trying to determine whether the disabled car had its hazard lights on, CHP spokesman Leland Tang said. But even if it didn’t, the officer should have seen the car, he said. Why he didn’t “will probably be the million-dollar question,” Tang said. PORTER RANCH – An LAPD officer struck and killed a Sylmar man as the man was attempting to get out of his disabled car on the 118 Freeway, authorities said Friday. The 51-year-old officer, a sergeant with more than 20 years on the force, was on duty when the collision occurred about 10:35 p.m. Thursday on the eastbound Ronald Reagan Freeway just east of Mason Avenue. Juan Manuel Martinez-Cortez, 37, was sitting in his car in the freeway’s second-from-the-left lane after he was involved in a previous crash, according to the California Highway Patrol. It’s unclear what happened to the other car in that crash. Martinez-Cortez tried to get out of his car just as the Los Angeles Police Department cruiser was approaching. The officer apparently didn’t see the disabled car in time to react and rear-ended it, according to the CHP report. Martinez-Cortez died at the scene.
0Shares0000Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut CourtoisLONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 26- Thibaut Courtois has hit back at Louis van Gaal after the ex-Manchester United boss slammed him for allowing Lionel Messi to score through his legs.Van Gaal had shared his thoughts on the Blues’ Champions League last 16 exit against another former club of his, Barcelona, telling Ziggo Sports: “The game was turned upside down due to the blunder of Courtois [for Messi’s first goal], which I think is a big blunder. “If he’d have had [Dutch former Manchester United goalkeeping coach] Frans Hoek as goalkeeper coach, he would have closed his legs.”Courtois did not take kindly to these remarks, telling Sporza: “When I hear so-called experts talking, I think they know nothing about goalkeeping — for example, van Gaal should not talk about goalkeepers.”However, the Belgian admitted he was not blameless, conceding: “I have often played against Messi and it was not the first time he scored with a shot between my legs.“For a goalkeeper of my height, it is probably my weakest point. That is very annoying, but I have to face it. I have to acknowledge my mistake as a man.”The keeper, who has been linked with a move away from Chelsea, is doubtful for their crunch encounter with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, having pulled out of the Belgium squad for their friendly against Saudi Arabia with a hamstring injury.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)

A Donegal father and son have become poster boys to highlight the need for kidney donors across Ireland.Five year old Christian McCullagh from Raphoe, Donegal received a kidney transplant in October 2012.And amazingly it was his father Gary who was the living kidney donor. Christian was born 5 weeks prematurely with very poor kidney function. He was on life support for the first two weeks of his life.A patient of Temple Street Hospital he had been receiving a form of home dialysis for three and a half years for 10 and a half hours at a time, 5 nights a week.Now Christian is fighting fit and back leading a normal life thanks to dad Gary and the organ donor transplant team.Organ Donor Awareness Week starts tomorrow (SAT) and lasts all week. The swings of Irish donation figures from year to year, was highlighted by the Irish Kidney Association at its launch by the Minister for Health, Dr. James Reilly, T.D. at the Mansion House.2010 was almost a record low for organ donation, 2011 was a record high and 2012, at 17% less than the previous year, was below average.The Irish Kidney Association Chief Executive, Mr. Mark Murphy said, “I don’t know of another European country, even of a similar size population, with such wide swings in deceased donor activity”.“Unless the required infrastructure and funding is implemented in the Republic, the Organ Donor Consent issue is irrelevant at this time as there is much more to do here before such deliberations take place.”Attending the launch was RTE Liveline presenter Joe Duffy who, for the third year in a row, is fronting campaign, which aims to increase the number of organ donors. The annual organ donor awareness campaign is organised by the Irish Kidney Association and supported by the Irish Donor Network and will take place from 30th March until 6th April, 2013. At the campaign’s national launch, Mr. Murphy said “the willingness of the Irish public to donate is not the problem when it comes to organ donation. It is the lack of the required infrastructure, an organ donor registry and the employment of fully trained organ donor coordinators in all our hospitals. This is proven by the top 10 European donating countries that have identified and invested in infrastructure to achieve 30 donors per million of population (pmp) successfully and affordably.”“The Irish public should not be misled that the proposed change in the name of the consent system from ‘Informed Consent’ (opt in) to ‘Presumed consent’ (opt out) would increase our current rate in organ donation from its current 20 per million of population (pmp).” Nowhere in Europe does ‘presumed consent’ actually take place in practice. Regardless of legislation, they all have come to realise it is not a practical system. The relatives are always consulted and can veto any organ donation process.”The Irish Kidney Association welcomes the calling by the National Organ Procurement Service for an audit of activity on potential organ donors in hospitals which would identify where improvements might be made and address the ‘unpredictability’ from year to year.2012 was almost an average year for deceased organ donors at 78, down from the record set the previous year at 93, but only 2 donors off the 5 year average of 80 per year. Thanks to the generosity of 78 deceased donors and their families, 206 transplant operations took place in Ireland in 2012. 3 of the deceased donors were non heart-beating donors/cardiac death donors, following from the first one the year before.The 131 deceased donor kidney transplants, were complimented by a further 32 living donor kidney transplants and a further 3 Irish patients received specialist living donor transplants in the UK. The total of 166 kidney transplants, in the year, is above the 5 year average and is due to the increase in living donors. Mr. Mark Murphy commented that, “Replacing deceased donation by living donation is a concern. Living donation needs to remain complimentary to deceased donation – not its replacement”.At 50, the livers transplanted were slightly less than the 5 year average of 54.2.Heart transplantation was well above average with 10 transplants being performed in 2012, up from 6 in 2011.Lung transplantation showed the greatest increase in the year with a record of 14 transplants for 2012. (10 single and 4 double lungs transplanted). This was 75% more than the 8 transplanted in 2011 and double the 5 year average of 7. A further 6 lung transplants were conducted in the UK on behalf of Irish patients. In total, 20 Irish patients received transplanted lungs last year.There are currently 1828 people in Ireland receiving dialysis treatment. In 2012 the number of patients with End Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD) grew by 45 or just over 1% in the year.Also presenting at the campaign launch event was Mr. Martin Doody, Chairman of the Irish Kidney Association. The patients’ organisation is celebrating 35 years since its foundation. Mr. Doody welcomed the option for applicants for the new format driving licences to tick a box indicating their willingness to be an organ donor for organ donor. He said that so far the Road Safety Authority data has revealed that 35% of applicants have ticked the box which is represented by the code, 115, on their driving licence. Mr. Doody expressed his optimism that such data collection might pave the way for the beginning of an organ donor registry.Organ Donor Awareness Week also serves as a fundraising exercise for the Irish Kidney Association. Throughout the Week (30th March- 6th April, 2013), the Association’s volunteers will be out on the streets, and in shopping centres throughout the country, selling ‘forget me not flower’ emblems (the symbol of transplantation), brooches, pens and shopping trolley discs. All proceeds will go towards the Irish Kidney Association’s aid for patients on dialysis and those patients fortunate enough to have received a kidney transplant. 75% of the IKA’s funding is from non-statutory fundraising and donations.The programme includes the management of a 10 double room free accommodation facility for patients and their families in the grounds of Beaumont Hospital and holiday centres located in Tramore and Kerry, together with patient advocacy, advice, financial aid and rehabilitative work placement, health promotion and the provision of kidney patient information and education.Organ Donor Cards can also be obtained by phoning the Irish Kidney Association LoCall 1890 543639 or Freetext the word DONOR to 50050. Visit website www.ika.ie It is now possible to store an organ donor card, the ‘ecard’ on Smart mobile phones. Simply search for ‘Donor ECard’ at the IPhone Store or Android Market Place.Almost 3000 people in Ireland are enjoying extended life away from hospital as a result of receiving organ transplants. There are currently over 600 people in Ireland waiting for life-saving organ transplants including heart, lung, liver, kidney and pancreas.The first successful dialysis treatment in the world took place in the Netherlands on the 17th of March, St. Patrick’s Day in 1943. Now, 70 years later 2.7 million people worldwide are being treated for kidney failure. 2.1 million of them are treated by dialysis and 600,000 of them have a kidney transplant.DONEGAL FATHER AND SON BECOME POSTER BOYS FOR ORGAN DONATION WEEK was last modified: March 29th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Christian McCullaghdonor weekGary McCullaghkidneyorgan
Finn Harps will be hoping to extend their unbeaten start to the season when they host Shane Keegan’s Wexford Youths at Finn Park on Friday evening (kick-off 8.00pm)Peter Hutton’s Harps side have picked up eight points from their opening four league matches – winning both their home games and drawing both games on the road.Last weekend Harps came from 2-0 down to claim a share of the spoils with two second half goals from Thomas McMonagle and Kevin McHugh. The latter took his tally to four for the season with his equalising goal from the penalty spot. Ciaran Gallagher later saved a penalty to ensure Harps left Fahy’s Field with a point. “Against Mervue, I thought we started quite well but unfortunately didn’t really turn our possession into chances,” said Harps boss Peter Hutton as he reflected on the game. “I was surprised at how direct Mervue were and simply went from back to front with probing long balls over the top looking for the breaking ball, which in fairness is difficult to play against if you don’t deal with the first ball.“The pitch though was decent and I want us to play football when the conditions lend itself, but maybe the boys took me too literally and we got caught playing in the wrong areas and ultimately paid the price by gifting them two goals before halftime.“We regrouped though and realised that we were very much still in the game but needed to score first in the second half as I firmly believed that once we got one we’d get another. The players rallied and were excellent and never lost belief. Ciaran’s penalty save was also a mark of how the mentality of the team is changing, he could have felt sorry for himself in giving away the penalty but he remained focused and made a great save to help gain us a valuable point.”Hutton is quick to stress that it is very much a squad game these days, and not just about the eleven that play on any particular matchday. “The character shown by the players has been really refreshing and not just those starting games but also those on the bench and on the fringes of the first team have been tremendous and are really pushing each other on which, given human nature and the desire to want to play, says a lot for the group of players we’ve assembled here, each and everyone has been a credit so far this season.”The Harps boss was also quick to praise goalkeeper Ciaran Gallagher after his penalty save last week, but also stressed that the young keeper still has much to learn.“Ciaran has done well but he himself will also be the first to tell you he can still do better and acknowledges he still has a lot to learn. He is a great professional and takes his football seriously in the quest of continually trying to better himself and with Declan Mc Intyre at the club, who I personally believe is probably the best goalkeeping coach around, Ciaran, young Shaun Patton, Michael Lynch and Rory Kelly when he returns, will all benefit from his tutelage I’m sure. Ciaran for still one so young has gained a lot of vital experience already in his goalkeeping career and I’ve no doubt will continue to improve.”Friday’s game will be Wexford Youths’ tenth visit to Finn Park since gaining senior status in 2007. They have a decent record in Donegal, winning on four of their nine previous visits and losing just three times. Only once, in a 1-0 defeat in August 2007, have they failed to score in Ballybofey. Hutton knows that they will be difficult opponents on Friday.“This Friday’s game will be a real test as to gauge where we are at in terms of maintaining consistency. In many ways I see a lot of similarities in Wexford and ourselves. We both finished last season well and both have largely built upon the bulk of last season’s squads also. “They too like to play football but also have a physical presence throughout their team so they can mix it up too when required. I think it will be a very tight game on Friday they are coming to us on the back of two good victories especially after coming from behind to beat Waterford last week so we’ll give them due respect but will relish the challenge also.”On the team front, Ciaran Coll remains out with a cartilage tear. Sean McCarron who is likely to be out for three weeks with a tear in his calf suffered in last week’s 2-2 draw in Mervue joins him. Shaun McGowan is a doubt with a badly swollen ankle.“Both players left the game in Mervue on crutches last Friday,” said Hutton of the injuries to McCarron and McGowan. “So whilst the news isn’t great for either player it provides those other players with a window of opportunity to come in a stake a claim for a place in the team.”~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TEAM NEWSSuspended: NoneDoubtful: Shaun McGowan (ankle)Injured: Ciaran Coll (cartilage tear), Sean McCarron (calf).Form Guide (last six league games)Finn Harps: L-W-D-W-W-D (11 pts)Wexford Youths: W-W-L-L-W-W (12 pts)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Last six home games against Wexford Youths09-Apr-10 – Finn Harps 2-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)24-Sep-10 – Finn Harps 1-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)06-May-11 – Finn Harps 0-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)22-Oct-11 – Finn Harps 4-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)24-Mar-12 – Finn Harps 0-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)21-Jul-12 – Finn Harps 3-3 Wexford Youths (First Division)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Goalscorers 2013Kevin McHugh – 4Sean McCarron – 3Thomas McMonagle – 1Thomas McBride – 1 (in League Cup)Matt Harkin – 1 (in League Cup)James Doherty – 1 (in League Cup)Marc Brolly – 1 (in League Cup)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Results 2013 (Harps goalscorers in brackets)29-Mar-2013 – AL – Mervue United 2-2 Finn Harps (McMonagle, McHugh)23-Mar-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 1-0 Longford Town (McHugh)15-Mar-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 4-1 Cobh Ramblers (McCarron 2, McHugh 2)08-Mar-2013 – AL – Waterford United 1-1 Finn Harps (McCarron)03-Mar-2013 – LC – Mayo League 1-4 Finn Harps (Harkin, Doherty, Brolly, McBride)HARPS HOPING TO REMAIN UNBEATEN AS WEXFORD YOUTHS COME TO BALLYBOFEY was last modified: April 4th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:finn harpsFinn Parkwexford youths
