EU to Fund Water Project in 529 Schools

first_imgThe Ambassador of the European Union Delegation to Liberia, Tiina Intelmann has disclosed plans by EU to fund water project for 529 schools in nine counties.Ambassador Intelmann made the disclosure during a tour with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf at the C.D.B. King Memorial High School where Liberia’s Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) schools was launched.The EU Ambassador, who had earlier asked the Liberian government to identify priority areas in the post-Ebola crisis for assistance disclosed that for EU to contribute to the recovery of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, the European Union has established the regional fund under the name, “A West African Response to Ebola (AWARE).”Under this program, the Ambassador indicated EU’s support to WASH in schools contributes to government’s efforts in reopening schools and a minimum requirement to enable schools to reopen.Making the commitment, Ambassador Intelmann said, “By the end of 2015, 529 schools across nine counties of Liberia will have water through EU funding.”According to her, EU has awarded five grants to non-governmental organizations with expertise in WASH for action on behalf of EU.The non-governmental institutions concerned include Action Contre la Faim (ACF), Concern Worldwide, Plan Nederland, Save the Children Nederland and Oxfam GB.Counties in which schools will benefit are Bomi, Grand Cape Mount, Nimba, Montserrado, Grand Bassa, Lofa, Gbarpolu, Margibi and Bong.Ms. Intelmann intoned that the objective for “EU Support to Promote Access to Safe Water in Schools in Liberia” is to ensure that there is access to clean water in the schools and mobilizing communities, promoting hygiene awareness and proper use of the established infrastructures.The project will consider the constructions of new wells and boreholes in schools, that currently have no access to water and the existing infrastructures will be repaired; some NGOs will complement the construction of wells and boreholes with minor repairs of latrines and/or set up hand washing units. Schools and communities will also be targeted for hygiene awareness activities.  Training will be offered on the use and basic maintenance of the WASH infrastructures and each school will receive repair kits. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Returning Bale rescues Real from Al Jazira upset

first_imgMadrid’s pressure finally paid off 10 minutes into the second half when Cristiano Ronaldo levelled before Bale broke Al Jazira’s resistence with his first touch eight minutes from time.“It’s great to get the goal,” Bale told Real Madrid TV. “When you come on you want to make an impact, but the most important thing is to win and be in the final.”Real will go for their fifth trophy of the year when they face Brazilian side Gremio on Saturday.Bale was making only his second substitute appearance since September due to a series of muscle injuries.But he showed what Madrid have been missing for most of the season with a calm finish after replacing the profligate Karim Benzema.“I need to be patient, I’ve had some problems and it takes time. I need to listen to my body,” said the Welshman.Al Jazira, only invited to the competition as champions of the host country, enjoyed their 15 minutes of fame at the break after a remarkable first 45 minutes.Madrid scored five in the first half against Sevilla on Saturday and could easily have had another handful but for some exceptional goalkeeping from Ali Khaseif.The Al Jazira captain made an incredible stop to turn a deflected Ronaldo header onto the bar then got down well to parry efforts from Luka Modric and Karim Benzema.– VAR chaos –Benzema also had a goal ruled out for a push by Ronaldo in the build-up, but Madrid thought they had finally gone ahead when Casemiro’s header deflected off an Al Jazira head and looped over Khaseif.However, after a four-minute delay for the VAR referral, Brazilian referee Sandro Ricci disallowed the goal due to Benzema being in an offside position despite the fact the Frenchman was arguably not interfering with play.“I don’t like it to be honest,” added Bale on the use of VAR.“Obviously they are going to try it out. For me, football is better without it but it is other people who make the decisions.”In total Madrid had 18 shots on goal in the first half, but were shocked four minutes before the break when the hosts caught the Real defence cold on the counter-attack.A poor clearance from Nacho gifted away possession inside the Madrid half and Romarinho showed great composure to cut inside and curl his shot inside Keylor Navas’ far post.A monumental upset looked on when Al Jazira had the ball in the net for a second time two minutes into the second half.However, this time VAR came to Madrid’s rescue as Mbark Boussoufa was offside by the finest of margins before slotting home.Zinedine Zidane’s men grabbed that let-off gratefully and were level eight minutes later when Ronaldo was played in by Modric and smashed a shot past Khaled Al Senaani, who had replaced the injured Khaseif moments earlier.Madrid continued to lay seige to the Al Jazira goal, but the misfiring Benzema shot straight at Al Senaani then hit the post with two other glorious chances.Benzema was eventually replaced by Bale, who an instant impact as he slotted home Lucas Vazquez’s cutback to Real’s relief.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Real Madrid’s Welsh forward Gareth Bale (L) is congratulated after scoring by teammate Spanish forward Lucas Vazquez (R) during their match against Al Jazira in the Emirati capital Abu Dhabi on December 13, 2017 © AFP/File / GIUSEPPE CACACEABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, Dec 13 – Gareth Bale came off the bench to book Real Madrid’s place in the Club World Cup final as the European champions recovered from the shock of going behind to beat Emirati champions Al Jazira 2-1 on Wednesday.Despite dominating throughout, Madrid trailed at half-time to Romarinho’s opener in a match also marred by use of the video assistant referee (VAR) that ruled out a goal for both sides.last_img read more

L.A. council seeks gang prevention

first_imgThere are an estimated 40,000 gang members within the city and 90,000 countywide. In the discussion, two council members, Bernard Parks and Jan Perry, revived their concerns over the three-day, 12-hour work schedule approved for more officers. The two said they want a report on what it would take to change the work schedule only at police stations within their districts – drawing a loud protest from Councilman Jack Weiss. Weiss said he would fight any effort to change the 3-12 plan because of the support it has from police officers. “Eliminating the 3-12 schedule is exactly the wrong thing to do when we are adding 1,000 new officers to LAPD, when we are working every day to find new recruits and be competitive with other police departments in the area,” Weiss said. Parks, who fought the change in work schedule when he was police chief, said he is concerned it has reduced the number of officers on patrol, resulted in higher overtime costs and jeopardized some communities by the need to shift officers to other parts of the city to respond to calls. Paysinger noted it is part of the contract negotiated with the Los Angeles Police Protective League and could not be changed by city officials. “We are not sure why council members Parks and Perry want to tamper with a system that is working well,” said Tim Sands, president of the league. “Returning to a less-flexible schedule will not reduce overtime, will not reduce crime and will push experienced officers to request changes in assignments to other divisions.” Parks also said he believes city government needs to look beyond the LAPD to solve its crime problems. Library programs and Department of Recreation and Parks activities, for example, can play roles in keeping young people from joining gangs, Parks said. City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo outlined his office’s efforts to crack down on gangs with injunctions as well as to work with young people before they become gang members. Deputy city attorneys are assigned to schools and to an active program through the courts to identify young people susceptible to joining gangs. rick.orlov@dailynews.com 213-978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsCouncilman Tony C rdenas, who chairs the council’s ad hoc committee on gangs, said he will prepare recommendations for next year’s budget. “We made a promise to the taxpayers that we will have accountability at every level,” C rdenas said. “We need to develop programs that convince young people to do more than say no to drugs. They need to say no to gangs.” Officials agreed they need to do more with prevention programs, particularly to promote a better relationship with Los Angeles Unified School District leaders to use after-school programs to keep young people from joining gangs. Paysinger said the LAPD has promoted closer relations with other agencies, particularly the county Probation Department, to work with gang members and offer alternatives to gangs. At the same time, the LAPD has stepped up its enforcement efforts this year, with top-10 lists of the worst gangs and the worst gang members, and gang crimes, particularly gang homicides, have been reduced, Paysinger said. Told by a police official that residents are “hungry to be free from the scourge of generations of gang violence,” the Los Angeles City Council explored ways Wednesday to keep young people from joining gangs and to find a path for members to leave and rejoin society. In a rare meeting dedicated to a single topic, the council said public safety is a top priority and largely depends on suppressing gangs and keeping young people from joining them. The council heard Assistant Chief Earl Paysinger of the Los Angeles Police Department declare the public hungry to be free of gangs. “All of us have gotten that call where we hear some young person has been shot to death by an errant bullet or stabbed, and we feel helpless,” Council President Eric Garcetti said. “We console families. We pay for funerals. We go to candlelight vigils. “We spend our days talking to family members and mothers, trying to console them. We speak to those who are too afraid to speak out themselves, who sit in shuttered rooms because they are too afraid to go out.” last_img read more

SENTENCE ADJOURNED IN ARRANMORE MANSLAUGHTER CASE

first_imgA man who killed a teenager in a bar on a remote island off the Donegal coast has had his sentence hearing adjourned for over two weeks.Last month a Central Criminal Court jury found Stephen Boyle (aged 41) not guilty of the murder but guilty of the manslaughter of Paul Boyle (aged 19) at Early’s Bar, Leabgarrow, Arranmore on October 3, 2009. Stephen Boyle, of Austen House, Cambridge Road, Kilburn Park in London had denied murder but had pleaded guilty to manslaughter.The court heard that the father-of-one stabbed Paul Boyle in the neck with a glass after a row involving a number of people at around 2.30am on the night in question.Paul Boyle, who had celebrated his 19th birthday just three weeks earlier, was brought to the mainland by lifeboat but he died in Letterkenny Hospital at 10.20am on October 3.Prosecution counsel Mr Paul O’ Higgins SC told the court that Arranmore has a population of 522 people and the killing had caused “immense shock and sadness on the island”.During the trial, assistant State Pathologist Dr Khalid Jabbar told the jury that Paul Boyle died from associated blood loss and trauma caused by sharp force trauma.Dr Jabbar told the court there was trauma to the left side of the neck, which was caused by sharp force trauma, and that Paul Boyle lost 60% of his blood.Counsel for the defendant, Mr Michael O’Higgins SC, this morning asked the court to defer imposing sentence to allow for the compilation of an updated psychiatric report.A victim impact statement by members of Paul Boyle’s family was handed in to the court but was not read in to evidence.Mr Justice Patrick McCarthy remanded Stephen Boyle in custody and said he would adjourn the hearing until March 29 next.SENTENCE ADJOURNED IN ARRANMORE MANSLAUGHTER CASE was last modified: March 12th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:SENTENCE ADJOURNED IN ARRANMORE MANSLAUGHTER CASElast_img read more
