Advocacy Group Wants Gov’t Create “Specific Hospitals” to Contain Ebola

first_imgA local advocacy group, Green Cities Incorporated, is calling on the government of Liberia to create specific hospitals in order to contain the deadly Ebola virus among the people. Speaking to reporters at the group’s office in Monrovia, the chief executive officer (CEO) of GCI, James K. Mulbah, called on the national government to help identify “specific hospitals,” that will deal with only suspected Ebola cases.  Such hospitals would not treat people non-Ebola related ailments (e.g. pregnant women).“We want to call on  GOL to provide specific hospitals in the country that will deal with Ebola situation… in order to avoid further spread of  the virus to others part of the country,” he said.He expressed the belief that, “If the government can only have Ebola suspected patients in a specific hospital or clinic, [that] will help curtail some of the viral spread to other places. We need hospitals or clinics for some of these deadly diseases, including HIV/AIDS, with trained doctors and nurses [prepared to contain] the outbreak of such an  epidemic.” Speaking at the completion of an Ebola training session, Mr. Mulbah said his organization thought it prudent to encourage young people by educating and sensitizing  them on the ways of containing the deadly Ebola virus and prevent its spread to other communities and counties.“We have five communities where the awareness and sensitization on the epidemic have been completed,” he said.The training of the young people about the deadly Ebola virus is intended to avoid panic and encourage people to the right preventive measures to contain the disease.“We want to encourage young people across the country not to be in panic because of the outbreak, but to take the necessary preventive measures to ensure you are safe.  We need to spread the message of how one can be free of the Ebola virus,” said Mr. Mulbah.He noted that failure to deal with garbage in so many parts of Monrovia in this current Ebola crisis was further complicating the fight against the virus and causing serious problems for many people in various communities around the capital city.He told beneficiaries to focus on training other people in their communities to help eradicarte the deadly Ebola virus from Liberia, through the necessary protective measures,  especially for the  illiterate in our society.“Today, we have given you some protective gears, including safety masks for the face, hand-gloves, nose mask and the entire safety suits. Using those materials will prevent young people from contracting the virus,” Mr. Mulbah said.    One of the beneficiaries, J. Dennis Weah, said he was grateful for the opportunity to be part of the first training sesson on the Ebola virus.“The training was very unique and we were given some basic ideas of how to contain the virus.  We are returning to our various communities to spread information on some of the preventive measures, such as avoiding body contact with others [and] shaking-hands.”According to  Weah, the issue of fear was also creating additional problems for people; but he promised to provide the right awareness in his community to ensure that the virus is curtailed.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Nations’ Director frustrated with lack of progress in shooting incident

first_imgIt has been 11 months since Director of School of the Nations, Dr Brian O’Toole was shot and injured in front of his house but the police are yet to make an arrest in the case. He was shot on the night of January 27, 2019, and though the shooter was identified, he remains at large and is purported to have fled to the United States.Nations Director, Dr Brian O’TooleSpeaking with Guyana Times last week, O’Toole expressed his frustration in the slothfulness in which the Guyana Police Force is conducting its investigations.He explained that after learning that the perpetrator would have fled to the US, he provided that details to the US Embassy in Guyana with the intention of getting some assistance but this has not been done.Moreover, Dr O’Toole said he is disappointed with the lack of support he received from the United States Embassy, especially the Deputy Head of Mission and the Head of Security.“Four times they told me this is a Guyanese problem. The first time they told me, I thought it was some misunderstanding. I say, I am not talking about shooter I am talking about the person who started the mayhap. Again they said it is for the Guyanese Police to deal with, so I ask them how that is possible that you can sit there and tell me that a Guyanese Police Force got to go to Florida. That is an unbelievable statement,” the Director said.O’Toole, whose left hand was left paralysed as a result of the shooting, said to this day, the events of the night in question linger in his mind.“Eleven months ago, that night, the house was brightly lit up. The boy, whose hands was shaking like a child was about five, six feet away and I can see it now, it is clearly as I saw him on that day,” he explained.O’Toole added that his perpetrator did a popular video game, “Fornite”, dance after shooting him.Fortnite is a video game in which players compete individually or as part of squads of up to four to be the last player standing.On the day in question, the 64-year-old man arrived at his Bel Air home and as he was about to open the door to his house, a male suspect approached him, pointed a gun and discharged three rounds in his direction. Two bullets caught him in both forearms. During that time, Dr O’Toole’s school had received several death threats.Meanwhile, as he pursues the matter, O’Toole had met with the acting Crime Chief last week where he was assured that every piece of evidence and information pertaining to the shooting is being looked at.The investigations continue.last_img read more

Opposition PPP/C to finally get its day in Parliament

first_img– wants full disclosure on D’Urban Park,Parking Meter Projectsthe 65 members of the National Assembly are expected to on Monday turn their attention to the business that has been promulgated by the political Opposition – this is after the Opposition business had been hijacked by Government during the recent sitting.On that occasion, the leader of the Government’s business in the House had moved a motion – in keeping with the Standing Orders – to have Government’s business take precedence, namely a debate, to approve the policies that had been outlined by Head of State David Granger when he addressed the House on its return from its 2016 annual recess.According to the Order Paper for Monday’s sitting, “By an Agreement between the Government and Opposition, with the approval of the Speaker of the National Assembly, Private Members’ Business shall be given precedence at the sitting on 21st November 2016.”On that occasion, Chairperson of the parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (PAC), Irfaan Ali, is slated to move a motion on the Parking Meter Project being implemented in the capital city – Georgetown.Ali and the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) will be looking to garner Government’s support to have the National Assembly call on the Auditor General to immediately conduct a forensic audit into the Mayor and City Council (M&CC), including the parking meter contract.Ali contends, “There are many legal hurdles and protocols to address, including the yet unresolved critical issue of whether the Mayor and City Council have authority over public roads such as Regent Street, Water Street and Avenue of the Republic.”He has observed in his proposed motion that “the Government of Guyana – through the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Communities and the Ministry of Legal Affairs – has reviewed the parking meter contract and has found that the contract may have violated tender procedures; that the contract is too much in favour of the parking meter party and that the cost is burdensome.”Meanwhile, former Junior Finance Minister, Bishop Juan Edghill is also expected to seek the House’s approval for an inquiry into the multimillion-dollar D’Urban Park Project.Edghill, in his motion on behalf of the PPP/C, is looking to have Government come clean on the finances and others aspects in the development of the project.The former Junior Finance Minister is looking to have full disclosure on the names of the individuals and the private organisation, which were in charge of this project from its inception, to the April takeover by the Public Infrastructure Ministry, the donors and their contributions in cash and/or kind who contributed to the initial phase and completion of the Jubilee D’Urban Park Development Project.The list of contractors and the process of procurement used to secure those engaged and the budgeted and actual costs for every phase of the project completed and a projected final cost for the overall project among other queries.The Opposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeira is also expected to move a motion named and related to the report from the Commission of Inquiry into the Public Service.Teixeira is looking to have the members of the House call on Government to have the contents of the report be placed on the order paper, in order to facilitate a debate on its contents and recommendations.last_img read more

Here’s looking at you, Porsche

first_imgI’ve been spending nights watching reruns of “Living With Ed” on cable TV looking for conservation tips. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a very funny show about actor Ed Begley Jr.’s environmentally manic life at his Studio City home, where every day is Earth Day. I’ve redoubled my recycling efforts so that I’m spending more time separating my trash than watching my 401(k) stagnate. I’m even thinking about solar panels for the roof. But, I don’t know, ever since Porsche drove back into my life, I can feel myself weakening, going back to the old me. Don’t get me wrong. Prius is great, but every time I drive her, I feel like an old guy on his way to somebody’s retirement party. When I drive Porsche, I feel like a young guy on his way to the frat house to tap a keg. My wife wants me to get rid of her, but I’m holding out. We’ve been together too long. The car and me, not the wife. Yeah, I know she’s a gas-guzzling, polluting, temperamental tease, but I still have a thing for her. She makes me laugh and feel young. But in honor of Earth Day, I’m keeping her in the garage today, and taking Prius for a spin up the coast. Maybe we’ll run into a nice retirement party to stop in on along the way. Dennis McCarthy’s column appears Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. dennis.mccarthy@dailynews.com (818) 713-3749 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she had to drive back into mine. An old flame, she left me a year ago to have some body work done that took a little longer than expected. OK, a lot longer. “Your Porsche’s finally ready,” my mechanic said, calling me at work Tuesday. “Come get her – and bring your checkbook.” She never was a cheap date, my 1969 Porsche. Very high-strung and temperamental. Only wants the best. But, hey, with a body and lines like that, a guy doesn’t complain. She’s pushing 40 and still looks great. But here’s the rub: In the year she’s been gone, I’ve taken up with a younger, more environmentally sensitive model – a 2006 Prius. She’s an Earth Day dream. Low pollution, Diamond Lane-ready, and I can get her in and out of the gas station in under five minutes for a full tank that costs right around the price of a good bottle of wine. Try that in your Hummer, Gov. Gas Guzzler. I don’t know, maybe it’s age or Al Gore, but I’m a changed man since Porsche left last year and I took up with Prius. last_img read more

Japan bidding to make World Cup history, says Nishino

first_img“Japan had fantastic performances to reach the round of 16 (in 2002 and 2010), but those teams were exhausted by that stage, there wasn’t anything left, especially in 2002,” said Nishino.“This is the third time. We have been very tactical to get to this stage, especially in the third match.“We don’t have much room to manoeuvre, but we can be aggressive. We have the spirit and mentality.“Maybe Belgium feel the tournament is starting after their three wins, but I’d like to feel we are on a par with them. We have played to our best, but the players have something more to offer.”Japan lost to Turkey in the last 16 when they hosted the 2002 finals with South Korea, then bowed out after a penalty shoot-out against Paraguay at the same stage in South Africa in 2010.Nishino endured stinging criticism in the aftermath of their final group game in Russia, when Japan ran the clock down in a 1-0 defeat to Poland.Japan defender Gen Shoji © AFP / JORGE GUERREROThey squeezed into the knockout rounds at Senegal’s expense because they had picked up fewer yellow cards and are the underdogs against Belgium.Nishino, 63, has done well even to get Japan into the knockout stages, having only stepped in when predecessor Vahid Halilhodzic was sacked in April.After a modest win over 10-man Colombia, draw with Senegal and defeat to Poland in the group stages, a win against Belgium would see him write his name into Japanese football folklore.“I have to come up with measures and counter-measures. As a team we might have to create something,” he said.“It can’t be just the sum of individual powers, otherwise we might not be able to overcome them.”Defender Gen Shoji is likely be tasked with helping keep Belgium’s attackers at bay, including Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, who has scored four goals so far.“It’s not just Lukaku — the Belgium team is star-studded,” said Shoji, with Belgium captain Eden Hazard and playmaker Kevin De Bruyne in impressive form.“In terms of my position, I will be facing him (Lukaku) quite a lot, but I have been preparing myself mentally to face Belgium, who are a formidable opponent.“Before this tournament started we wanted to make history, so we are going for the last eight or better. From here on, there is a lot of pressure and expectation, but we have to get the best out of ourselves.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Japan coach Akira Nishino (left) hopes to get the better of Roberto Martinez in their World Cup last-16 match © AFP/File / Benjamin CREMEL, Alexander NEMENOVROSTOV-ON-DON, Russian Federation, Jul 1 – Japan have the spirit and mentality to reach the World Cup quarter-finals for the first time in their history, coach Akira Nishino said on Sunday ahead of his side’s last-16 clash against Belgium.The Asian side have reached the first knockout round twice before — in 2002 and 2010 — but hope to go one better in Rostov against the highly fancied European side.last_img read more

Aruba prosecutor to drop Holloway case

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champNo one has been formally charged in the investigation, which critics have said was botched in its early stages by Aruban authorities. The probe has revolved around three suspects: Joran van der Sloot, a 20-year-old Dutch citizen and brothers Deepak Kalpoe, 24, and Satish Kalpoe, 21, from Surinam. They were the last people known to see Holloway before she vanished on the night of May 30, 2005. All three, who have denied any role in her disappearance, have been arrested several times – the latest arrests coming last month – but released after different judges ruled there was not enough evidence to keep holding them. Mos told the AP he will drop the case unless prosecutors in his office agree before the New Year that they have strong enough evidence to go to court. He said he imposed the deadline himself earlier this year because he feels two years is a reasonable amount of time for bringing charges against someone. SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Aruba’s chief prosecutor said he will close the case of missing American teenager Natalee Holloway by the end of the month unless his office finds that there is enough evidence to charge someone with a major crime. The prosecutor, Hans Mos, said he would not comment about the kind of evidence his office is reviewing but that he does not anticipate finding Holloway’s remains and prosecuting a case without them would be “very hard.” “We promised the suspects that after Dec. 31, we will not pursue the case,” Mos told The Associated Press Friday. “This investigation should end at a certain point.” Holloway’s parents did not return multiple messages left at their homes and on their cell phones. Mos said he and the Holloway family feel pursuing a minor charge “doesn’t serve a purpose.” A person convicted of making a body disappear would serve only six months in prison, he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Wilder hails ‘fantastic’ signing as Sheffield United make fifth addition

first_imgKean Bryan has become Sheffield United’s fifth summer signing, arriving on a free transfer from Manchester City.The Premier League champions, though, have a sell-on clause on any future transfer fee.Bryan, who had been linked with Rangers put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal at Bramall Lane ahead of United’s first game of the EFL season against Swansea City.Comfortable in defence or midfield, the England youth international offers versatility and enjoyed his first taste of senior football with Bury during the 2016/17 campaign. Last term, the 21-year-old furthered his development away from the Etihad Stadium, making 32 appearances in League One with Oldham Athletic, scoring twice, with his form enough to see him win the club’s Young Player of the Year award.United manager, Chris Wilder, told sufc.co.uk: “We watched Kean throughout last season and he’s got a great pedigree with England and Manchester City.“It’s a fantastic deal for us, Kean is naturally left-footed, he can play left centre-half, left-back and in midfield and he is a very good technical player we think we can develop.“He played over 30 games at Oldham which will have aided his development and it’s important that we’ve kept the squad balanced with permanent signings and loans.”last_img read more

Remembering Soweto’s class of ’76

first_img14 June 2012 A memorial and a youth centre with a difference are being built near the school in Soweto where students set off on the morning of 16 June 1976, a day that changed the course of South Africa’s history, to protest against apartheid and its “Bantu education” system. Youth Day, a public holiday celebrated in South Africa every year on 16 June, pays tribute to the hundreds of students who lost their lives during the 1976 uprisings sparked off by the students’ march and the violent reaction of the apartheid security forces. Mphuti Street in Jabavu, Soweto holds a strong significance to the events of 16 June 1976. On this street is Morris Isaacson High School, where the students’ protest is said to have gained momentum after starting at Naledi High School in the southwestern end of the township.June 16 Heritage Trail It is at Morris Isaacson that the June 16 Heritage Trail, which follows the route that protesting Soweto school students took, begins. Directly opposite the school, a new June 16 Memorial and a Youth Institute are being built. Bheki Nkosi, Gauteng province’s MEC for infrastructure development, took the media on a tour of the construction site last week. Work on the R28-million project, funded by the department, began in October 2010 and is expected to be completed and handed over to the City of Joburg in July. The City is a development partner in the project. Speaking on site, Nkosi said: “The Youth Institute is [part of] the June 16 Trail Project aimed at identifying and recognising the contributions made by the young people of Soweto and South Africa in general towards the struggle against oppression and subjugation. “Once completed, it will become a centre for memory and a resource for young people to contribute their role in the community through various youth developmental programmes that will be run from the institute.” It will be a place of learning and skills development. It contains a computer room with space for 10 computers. There is also a multimedia room that will contain another set of computers, television screens and print material, including educational books. A server room will connect all computer systems.Technology The institute is technologically advanced. It also has a room for a back-up generator that will service the whole building in case of power outages. It will kick in automatically the moment the electricity cuts off, and will have a large enough fuel tank to last for 24 hours before being filled again. On the ground floor, there is an open space that will be used as an art gallery. “We are saying to young people, ‘This is your chance to showcase your potential in this institute.’ We have to make sure that the battles of June 16 are won in his building,” Nkosi said. A medium-sized multipurpose room will be able to accommodate just over 100 people, to be used for various purposes. Obed Madzhini, the project manager, said the basement would consist of a large space that would provide an alternative venue for meetings and conferences. It would also have storage space. Ablution facilities, including for disabled people, will also be located in the basement. Parking will also be in the basement, which will have ramps to the ground floor for easy access for disabled people. The ground floor is paved with concrete slabs, strips of black granite and brick.Architecture From the outside, the two-storey building has a unique design: Mmakwena Selepe, the chief director of capital works, said that once it was complete, it would have the shape of an AK 47 rifle. “The AK 47 is a symbol of the struggle. It is relevant to the events of June 16.” Outside the centre, a steel foundation for a pictorial memorial wall has already been built. Once it is finished, pictures of June 16 heroes will be engraved on the wall, along with the history of the student uprisings. “It will tell the whole story of June 16 and its heroes.” Madzhini said the foundation had been designed to be very strong, to ensure that it lasted for years, “if not for ever”. Next to the memorial, near the entrance on the west, a second statue of Tsietsi Mashinini will be erected. Mashinini was one of the student leaders of the march. He died in exile in the 1990s. There is already a statue of him at the school, unveiled in June 2010. It was the second monument erected in Soweto specifically to commemorate the contribution of the class of 1976 to the liberation struggle. The other was the June 16 Memorial Acre and Artwork that was unveiled in 2006. It is part of the Hector Pieterson Memorial and the other plaques that have been unveiled along the route followed by the youth. To be displayed at the entrance to the institute will be a section of glazed steel bearing the words: Struggle, Liberty, Freedom, June 16, Memorial Acre, Youth and Rise. The building is 80 percent complete; 93 locals have been trained during its construction through the government’s Expanded Public Works Programme, a national plan aimed at drawing a significant number of unemployed South Africans into the productive workforce by providing them with skills training.
