Boakai Wants consolidated Efforts for Disasters Fight

first_imgVice President Joseph Nyuma Boakai has told the High Level Disaster Preparedness and Response Meeting that it is only through a well-formulated response strategy—both in terms of available resources and as a result of the training required–that this nation might prevail against disaster.The Liberian Vice President said that bitter experiences have taught us that irregular or knee-jerk responses to situations of disastrous proportions, usually leave us with casualties that should not have been, had we been better coordinated.Vice President Boakai made these remarks on Tuesday when he formally opened a Government High Level Disaster Response Meeting that convened at a local hotel to consider guidance for the future organizational structure of disaster management in the Country.He identified mechanisms to coordinate activities between government ministries and agencies and other stakeholders in the event of a disaster. The Vice President also identified requirements which need further research and action to improve the ability of the Liberian Government to effectively manage disasters and to recognize actions needed for Liberia to comply with Ecowas’ mandate.Hon. Boakai pointed out that no matter how many volunteers or resources one may be able to command from the outside in the event of a disaster, disaster preparation must begin with the host, saying “The better prepared you are, the better you can effectively guide the efforts of those who come to assist.”Speaking further, Vice President Boakai cautioned the meeting that the purpose of the forum was to examine the Liberian Government’s disaster management plans, policies and procedures, and assess their adequacy to respond to a major local, regional or global disaster event. He told the meeting to take into account the low-level of Liberia’s preparedness and noted that we can do far better and we should.VP Boakai furthered that “Government remains focused,  and there is a political will; with our eyes set on the course—even in the face of scarcity of needed resources and technical knowledge—we will explore the most efficient measures of preparation. Disaster does not discriminate and does not choose its victims whether rich or poor, partisan or opposition, weak or strong,” he added.On Monday, Vice President Joseph N. Boakai met with Officials from the National Disaster Management Organization of Ghana, the United States Africa Command, National Emergency Management Agency of Nigeria, and the Chair on the Committee on Disaster of Nigeria on Capitol Hill ahead of the High Level Disaster Preparedness and Response Table Top Exercise.The Officials were, Mr. Kofi Arthur, of the House of Parliament of Ghana, Mr. Ebenezer Kofi Portuphy, of the National Disaster Management Organization of Ghana, Mr. Erik Threet, of the United States Africa Command and Mr. Muhammed Sani Sidi, Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency and Sunday Ifedayo Abegunde. They were accompanied to the Office of the Vice President by the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs, Rennie Jackson.According to the Minister of Internal Affairs, Morris Dukuly, the purpose of the meeting was to stimulate discussion among senior officials of the Liberian Government on matters related to improving national disaster management and preparedness capabilities of the country.The meeting was organized by the members of the Liberian Technical Core Team, National Disaster Relief and funded by the United States Africa Command and their implementing partner, the Center for Disaster Humanitarian Assistance Medicine.During the Monday’s meeting Vice President Boakai stressed the need for a clear-cut mandate and implementable terms of reference for Liberia’s disaster relief program, as the Ebola virus continues to “snowball” in the region.In his address today, Vice President Boakai recalled the No Way Camp Disaster, and so many others including the recent fire disaster that left many dead and homeless at Johansson and other fires and storms across the country that destroyed lives and properties.“Today’s meeting is expected to provide a deeper understanding of the challenges that are likely to arise during a major disaster event, identify gaps in the Liberian Government’s disaster management, and recommend changes to plans, policies, and procedure.”Health Ministry authorities in Monrovia have announced that eleven persons have so far died from the Ebola Virus as the Government continues to take measures including awareness programs to stop the spread of the deadly virus that has also left many dead in neighboring Guinea.United States Ambassador to Liberia, Deborah Malac, the Program Manager of the United States Africa Command, Erik Threet, Louis K. Davies-Morris, Director of the National Disaster Relief Commission of Liberia, Daniel Gambo of the National Emergency Management Agency of Nigeria and George Kofi Arthur of the House of Parliament of Ghana, and Mr. Ebenezer Kofi Portuphy National Coordinator of the National Disaster management organization of Ghana  among several international guests as well as Officials of the Liberian Government were in attendance.There were presentations on the United Nations and Ecowas mandate, disaster preparedness program overview, the legislative process, committee oversight and resources, Ecowas Policy and guideline disaster relief management structures and systems and disaster coordination and legal structures, according to a release issued by the Office of the Vice President.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Eight SoCal players swell recruiting class

first_imgMany of the high school juniors swore nothing was pre-planned, but by the time each left campus, UCLA coach Karl Dorrell had an unprecedented haul of recruits. Eight players, all from Southern California, gave non-binding oral commitments to be part of the Bruins’ 2008 recruiting class during a high-octane day of unofficial visits to the Westwood campus by some of the most talented players around. Also saying they would commit were Dorsey running back Jonathan Franklin, Culver City safety/receiver Antwon Moutra and Leuzinger of Lawndale linebacker Uona Kavienga. The eighth player to commit was Crenshaw receiver Kemonte Bateman, but his is not considered as strong as the other seven because of extenuating circumstances. Bateman, a dynamic player, received a verbal scholarship offer from UCLA, but is not expected to receiver a written offer for a while because he must clear significant academic hurdles to be admitted to UCLA, sources said. “Let’s just say he has a lot of work to do,” a source said. NCAA rules prohibit coaches from commenting about recruits until a binding signed national letter of intent is received, and signing day for these recruits is 11 months away. The group is led by defensive back Rahim Moore of Dorsey of Los Angeles, Compton defensive end Datone Jones, Colton defensive end Damien Holmes and Crespi of Encino safety E.J. Woods. “It really wasn’t planned,” Holmes said. “I went there just wanting to learn more about UCLA. They sold everything to me. (The coaches) told us all they would love for us to commit, but there really wasn’t that much pressure. People were just sold on it.” center_img The players gave kudos to Bruins defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker and recently hired receivers coach Eric Scott, who has strong ties to the inner city, for the recruiting haul. They said Bruins running backs coach Dino Babers, who is also the recruiting coordinator, also had a major impact on the day. “(The coaches) were talking, so I felt it,” Franklin said. “I was so comfortable there. It was my place. If there’s a chance I don’t make it to the NFL, by me going to that school, I’m going to be successful in life. I’m going to have a good job, make good money, take care of my family. It balances out.” Holmes said the day was pretty typical of an unofficial visit. The group of players took a tour, were presented with academic information, met collectively with Dorrell and individually with position coaches. “It just kind of happened,” said Holmes, who added he has offers from Nebraska, Duke, Mississippi. “It wasn’t like, `Hey, lets go in there together.’ I can’t speak for the other guys, but for me it was, `OK, let’s do it.’ But I guess we all felt the same way.” Moore, who had offers from Nebraska, USC, Auburn and Oregon, made 122 tackles and seven interceptions as a junior. He is listed by several recruiting services as the top defensive back in Southern California. Woods said he played Pop Warner football with Moore, Franklin and Jones, and they often talked about playing college football together. “I like that (UCLA’s coaches) sell academics before anything, and they guarantee a degree,” said Woods, who had 24 tackles five sacks last season. “They wanted a student-athlete. Other schools just wanted an athlete, and they didn’t even ask what my grades were. “I was going to wait it out because I’m just a junior, and Ohio State and Miami started showing me interest, but UCLA was the first school to recruit me. They offered me when I was a sophomore.” The commitments capped a week full of action for the football program, which received non-binding oral commitments from cornerback Aaron Hester of Compton Dominguez, receiver Jerry Johnson of Venice and defensive back Anthony Dye of Corona Santiago. brian.dohn@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Mum Collette admits that she was a little nervous when she realisedthat she was to have up to eight inches of her love hair cut off.“It’s something she said she always wanted to do. I didn’t get a wigfor Erin when she had her chemotherapy because she was only aged threeyears.“Instead we got a little bandana and she was fine. But can you imagineif you are that little bit older – girl’s hair is everything to dothem and I think it is probably one of the most upsetting things tolose their lovely hair,” said Collette.Amazingly Erin found that when she had her hair cut, hairdresser BredaDoherty estimates that the Princess trust will be able to make fourpony tails from the donated hair.Cancer survivor, Erin Gallagher from Glenswilly, pictured at her local hairdresser, HairDos with her mother Colette.

LONELY LIFE OF DONEGAL PENSIONERS TO FEATURE ON RTE SPECIAL TONIGHT

first_imgPensioners from Donegal and other parts of rural Ireland will feature in a Primetime Special on RTE television tonight. Miriam O’Callaghan reports on Rural Isolation in a special entitled “No Country for Old Men,” which will be broadcast at 9.35pm on RTE One.Over the past few weeks, leading up to Christmas, Prime Time’s Miriam O’Callaghan travelled north and south speaking to some of the country’s bachelor farmers and older men living alone and in rural isolation. The team see behind the doors of Kerry and Donegal, meeting Mossie Foley, Barney Byrne and “Packie Jim of the Mountain.”Some of the men are part of a particularly Irish phenomenon, a generation that experienced the lowest marriage rates in history.In the 1950’s about a third of men never married. According to the CSO, the propensity to remain single “was most pronounced for rural males aged 35-44. Just over half this group was single in 1946, compared to 1 in 5 some fifty years later”.Often these men stayed on the family farm, taking care of the land and elderly parents. Miriam O’Callaghan met Seventy Seven year old Mossie Foley from South Kerry who reminisces about a time when his area was more filled with neighbours and school children, to “Packie Jim of the Mountain,” who still lives in the house he was born in 80 years ago – remarkably, he still has no running water or electricity.Miriam also met Barney Byrne, a widower, who explains how he spends his days in the country, living alone after his wife and adult son passed away. The challenges posed by a lack 0of rural transportation, needing home help and loneliness are never far away.“It really was a privilege for me that these men let us into their homes and into their lives,” said Miriam.“Theirs is a testimony to a changing society – one that involves exodus from country and the challenges of sustaining a happy and healthy life while struggling with the issues of rural transportation, home help and fear of living alone.”LONELY LIFE OF DONEGAL PENSIONERS TO FEATURE ON RTE SPECIAL TONIGHT was last modified: December 19th, 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:donegalpensionersPrimetime SpecialRTElast_img read more

NBC News chief’s mandate: Keep Katie

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Capus, 42, said his mandate is to keep the division moving forward during swiftly changing times. NBC recently became the first network to make its nightly newscast available online the same night it is broadcast, and he said similar moves are likely for other programming. Capus was executive producer of NBC’s top-rated “Nightly News” from 2001 until June, when he was promoted to the No. 2 executive post at the news division. He managed the smooth anchor transition from Tom Brokaw to Brian Williams last year. Prior to that, Capus produced Williams’ nightly newscast on MSNBC. NBC and MSNBC are owned by General Electric Co. His new job gives him authority over MSNBC and its president, Rick Kaplan. MSNBC hasn’t been able to escape the ratings cellar in its competition with News Corp.’s Fox News Channel and Time Warner Inc.’s CNN, but Capus said it has made NBC a stronger news organization. “We have become much more aggressive because NBC News is in the 24-7 business,” he said. “We have to respond quickly and aggressively to stories.” NEW YORK – Now that he has the job of NBC News president, Steve Capus can concentrate on his immediate top priority: keeping Katie Couric. Capus, a veteran NBC News producer who has been acting chief of the news division since Neal Shapiro left in September, had the “acting” part stripped from his title on Tuesday. He’s immediately thrust into negotiations that will play a large part in the division keeping its No. 1 status and its profitability. Couric, whose contract expires at the end of the TV season, is being courted by Viacom Inc.’s CBS to take over as anchor of “The CBS Evening News.” “Katie is enormously talented and an important part of our morning team,” Capus said. “We’re going to continue to focus on the situation with her. It is important – obviously, the morning show audience continues to grow here. Katie is part of the team, and it’s a very strong ensemble both in front of the camera and behind the scenes.” Capus was also briefly in the production ranks at “Today” during the mid-1990s, where he worked under then-executive producer Jeff Zucker. Zucker, president of the NBC Universal Television Group, continues as his boss. Zucker said Capus “has great journalistic judgment, the confidence of his colleagues, and a keen understanding of the importance of extending the NBC News brand across new platforms in this ever-evolving digital era.” A Temple University graduate, Capus worked in local news in Philadelphia before joining NBC News in 1993 as a producer of its overnight news broadcast. “I’m a home-grown product of this organization,” he said. “I know it through and through and I know the people. They turned to someone who knows all of that and it’s a great statement to make about this news division.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Men’s Basketball Falls At SIU, 83-69

first_img Preview CARBONDALE, Ill. – Paced by five players in double-figure scoring and a 10-point second-half run, the SIU men’s basketball team pushed past Drake, 83-69, Sunday afternoon in Carbondale, Ill. The Salukis registered 12 steals to hold the Bulldogs at bay while limiting Drake to 43.5 percent shooting.Junior Reed Timmer (New Berlin, Wis.) continued his history of strong play against SIU with a team-high 17 points with 13 of them coming in the second half. He entered the game averaging 20.0 points per game against SIU in his career. Ore Arogundade (Chicago, Ill.) added 13 points and four rebounds for Drake (3-11, 1-1 MVC).SIU (8-7, 1-1) was without the services of its leading scorer, Armon Fletcher, due to injury. But his replacement, Sean Lloyd, filled in admirably with seven points and seven rebounds. Leo Vincent hit five three-pointers on eight attempts for 15 points. Sean O’Brien added 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Salukis to help them to a 43-31 advantage in rebounding.”When you’re not shooting the basketball as well as we have recently, it’s that much more important that you rebound the basketball, control the hustle plays and not turn it over,” said Drake head coach Jeff Rutter. “Unfortunately some of those other categories caught up to us and allowed them have a comfortable lead the last 6-to-8 minutes.”Drake faced a 5-point deficit to open the second half, but Timmer helped rally the squad with five points during an 8-0 run to take a 47-45 lead with 13:56 remaining. The lead swapped hands three times over the next three minutes until five Drake turnovers in a 150-second span allowed SIU to rattle off 10 straight points and take an 11-point, 66-55, lead with eight minutes remaining. SIU’s Aaron Cook recorded four steals during that run to finish with five on the game. A De’Antae McMurray (Alton, Ill.) three-pointer stifled the run, but the Bulldogs could get no closer than eight points for the remainder of the contest with the Salukis shooting 53.1 percent in the second half to earn their first MVC win of the season.SIU built its halftime lead by closing the first half on a 13-0 run to take a 37-32 lead into the break behind a Vincent three-pointer that gave him 12 first-half points. Drake had built up a 32-24 lead before the offense went silent for the final 4:30 of the half. Prior to that, the Bulldogs used a 9-0 run, with seven-straight points from Thomas to take a 17-11 lead with 13:19 left in the period. Thomas’ seven-point spurt included a pair of dunks and a three-point play. The junior finished the game with nine points on 4-of-5 shooting and four rebounds.The Bulldogs remain on the road to continue MVC action on Wednesday, Jan. 4, with a 7 p.m. game at Wichita State. The contest will be broadcast on The Valley on ESPN3 and on radio via ESPN Des Moines 1350-AM.Print Friendly Version at Wichita State 1/4/2017 – 7 p.m. Next Game: Live Stats 1350 ESPN Des Moines The Valley On ESPN3 Listen Live Watch Live Box Score (HTML) Box Score (PDF) Full Schedule Roster Story Linkslast_img read more

Empty homes in Donegal reaches 97 while over 500 remain on housing list

first_imgMore than 97 homes in Donegal have been unoccupied for more than three months while over 500 remain on the housing list, it was revealed on Monday. There have now been calls for Donegal County Council to speed up its housing allocation process after receiving confirmation that 32 houses in the Inishowen peninsula have been vacant for more than three months – despite 588 families remaining in housing need across the county.Commenting on the figures, Cllr Jack Murray said: “Despite the crisis in housing in Donegal, 97 council houses have remained unoccupied for more than three months – with, by far, the largest allocation of those being in Inishowen. “The level of housing need in Inishowen is a massive 588. Given that most of those applicants are families, it means that thousands of citizens are affected.“Therefore it is unacceptable that 32 houses can lie vacant while people are crying out for them.“So I am calling on Donegal County Council to make every effort to turn around houses once they become vacant and allocate them to families in need.“Every effort we take to help families off the housing list will have a positive and lifelong impact.” Empty homes in Donegal reaches 97 while over 500 remain on housing list was last modified: March 25th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:housing marketInishowenlast_img read more
