Ellen Gives $100 Each to Motorcyclists for the Holidays

first_imgOn Saturday, December 21, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, gave over 15,000 Liberian dollars to a group of motorcyclists as Christmas gifts in Central Monrovia.According to Colonel Abraham Kromah, Deputy Police Director for Operation, the concern of all Liberians remains a priority to President Sirleaf. He said the Christmas gift was a kind gesture from the Liberian leader in celebration of the holiday season.Mr. Kromah said the views of the motorcyclists must be heard as they are part of the Liberian society. He was, however, quick to point out that Liberia was a country of law and said that no violation would be taken lightly by the security sector.There have been recent reports that the cyclists have threatened to demonstrate in Monrovia.“I respect the motorcyclists a lot and always do my best to work with them. The police have no bad intentions towards them and we will continue to work them collectively to maintain the rule of law in the country,” Col. Kromah explained.He said President Sirleaf has been visiting a number of communities in and around Monrovia giving gifts in accordance with the celebration of the Christmas season.Col. Kromah was asked by the motorcyclists to supervise the sharing of the money so they could avoid any potential conflicts.The Dep. Police Director said the regulation on motorcyclists in Central Monrovia remains intact as police safe guard the process of reducing accidents in the country.Speaking on behalf of the motorcyclists was Mohammad Konneh, who expressed gratitude to the President for her concern. He pleaded with the President to release from detention their spokesman, who was picked up by the police, following what the some police officers said were inciteful comments coming the Motorcyclists Union Security General.Konneh urged his colleagues to remain law-abiding citizens of the country. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Matthaeus slams Ribery tantrum

first_img“Ribery has been here long enough now — he is emotional, but you can’t throw your shirt on the bench like that,” ex-Bayern midfielder and Germany captain Matthaeus told Sky.“That is a bad.”Bayern head coach Carlo Ancelotti was equally unimpressed by the 34-year-old Frenchman’s behaviour.“Of course, the player wants to play 90 minutes, but I decided to take him off because there were 10 minutes left, we had the game under control and he already had a yellow card,” said the Italian.“He had had problems (an injury knock) at the weekend, so I don’t understand his reaction and I will talk to him about it.”Ribery’s rage could well have consequences.“We are FC Bayern, that is not okay and we will talk about it,” added director of sport Hasan Salihamidzic.However, Ribery later defended his actions in an emotional statement.“I have always been one of the honest and loyal players in this business, I respect the fans and I respect the club I love,” he wrote on his Facebook page.“Throwing my wet jersey last night has nothing to do with disrespect, or anything else that I am accused of by people who pretend to know me.“This wet jersey, in which I have given everything for more than ten years, with all my impulses, my will to win and in which I have achieved so much.“Some will never understand what it means to give everything to their club and I’m sorry for them.“As long as I stand on the pitch, I, Franck Ribery, will defend our colours and be involved in every game with all my passion.”Team-mate Jerome Boateng defended the Frenchman’s behaviour.“Is he supposed to laugh and be happy, or what?” Boateng asked reporters rhetorically after making his first appearance this season following injury.“He had a good game and was replaced. I can totally understand his reaction.”Bayern played nearly 80 minutes against 10 men after Anderlecht had defender Sven Kums sent off just before Robert Lewandowski converted a penalty.Ribery’s is just the latest Bayern star to show unrest.Last week, Lewandowski criticised the club’s spending policy while Germany forward Thomas Mueller complained about starting on the bench in the 2-0 win at Werder Bremen a fortnight ago.Defending champions Bayern have made a poor start to the new Bundesliga season as Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Hoffenheim left them sixth in the table, their worst position after three games since 2010/11.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Bayern Munich’s midfielder Franck Ribery flings off his shirt after leaving the pitch during the Champions League group match against Anderlecht in Munich, southern Germany, on September 12, 2017 © AFP / Guenter SCHIFFMANNBerlin, Germany, Sep 13 – Germany legend Lothar Matthaeus has criticised Franck Ribery for defiantly throwing off his Bayern Munich shirt after being substituted in Tuesday’s Champions League win over Anderlecht, prompting a passionate response from the Frenchman.Having picked up an early booking for arguing with the referee in the 3-0 home victory, Ribery was taken off with 12 minutes to go in Munich and hurled his shirt at the Bayern bench.last_img read more

Baraza eyes history as Sofapaka hunt Shield

first_img“Everyone wants to make history and for me, this is a motivation to make sure the team does well. I would be very proud if we achieve that and win this title. If we win it as a team, it will not merely be my effort but that of the team,” Baraza said.Sofapaka take on National Super League (NSL) side Stima in Narok in Sunday’s late kick off, with the hope of going all the way to the final and breaking a four-year trophy drought.With the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) title seemingly away from their reach, the FKF Shield looks a more achievable silverware target for Batoto ba Mungu and this will be a crucial match for them.Sofapaka strikers Umaru Kassumba, Piston Mutamba and Stephen Waruru celebrate one of the goals in their 3-0 win over Baba Dogo United in the FKF Shield Round of 32 match at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on June 24, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“We haven’t given up on the title yet, because Gor might lose their matches at hand. You never know. But, this is our chance to win a trophy and we will give our all. It has been four years without a trophy and we have a chance to win one this year,” the coach noted.They will be up against former KPL side Western Stima, a side that is currently doing well in the NSL and are placed second in the standings behind leaders Ushuru.Baraza expects a tough duel against the powermen and has hinted he will field his strongest squad.“If you look at how they are performing in the NSL then you know they are not an easy team. Even when they were in the KPL, they were always a tough team for us so we are not taking this game lightly,” the tactician added.Sofapaka will miss the services of keeper Wycliffe Kasaya who picked up a groin injury in their last league match against Sony Sugar, Umaru Kassumba will miss after picking up a knock in training while midfielder Bernard Mang’oli has a stomach bug and will be unavailable.In the early kick off at the Narok Stadium, four-time champions Tusker FC will take on Bungoma SuperStars with Robert Matano also in the eye of history.Tusker FC head coach Robert Matano (right) confers with his assistant Charles Okore during their Kenyan Premier League match against Wazito on April 25, 2018 At Camp Toyoyo. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluMatano has reached the last two finals, winning last year with AFC Leopards while in the preceding year, he lost to his current employers by a solitary goal in the final. He looks to become the first coach to reach three consecutive finals and the first to win back to back with two different teams.The brewers are having an indifferent season in the league and they are placed ninth in the standings with 30 points, a massive 19 behind leaders Gor Mahia. A charge for the league title looks like a mirage for the 11-time champions.Matano will now look to make an imprint in the cup competition, though he has admitted it will not be an easy outing against the little known Bungoma.On Saturday, last year’s losing finalists Kariobangi Sharks will face Modern Coast Rangers at the Mbaraki Complex in Mombasa as they look to head into their second consecutive final.Head coach William Muluya will be heading into this game beaming with tides of confidence picked from their run in the KPL< including last weekend’s emphatic 5-1 win over Tusker FC.In the other matches, non-league side Friendzone which is composed of a host of former players will take on Eldoret’s Riverplate while in the late kick off at the Narok Stadium, Kenya Police will take on another non-league side Leysa.FKF Shield Round of 16 fixtures:Saturday: Kariobangi Sharks v Modern Coast- Mbaraki, Friendzone v Riverplate, Kenya Police v Leysa (Narok Stadium)Sunday: Vihiga United v Ulinzi Stars (Mumias), Tusker FC v Bungoma Superstars, Sofapaka v Western Stima (Narok Stadium)0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Sofapaka FC head coach John Baraza issues out instruction to his players during their Kenyan Premier League match against Sony Sugar on April 15, 2018.

O DOMHNAILL BACKS PLANS TO MAKE CYBER-BULLYING A CRIMINAL OFFENCE

first_imgA Donegal Deputy has backed his party’s plans to make cyber-bullying a criminal offence.Senator O’DomhnaillDeputy Brian O Domhnaill says he is fully behind Fianna Fail’s proposals to bring in legislation on the issue of online crimes.“Unfortunately in Donegal we have witnessed first hand the devastating effects of cyber-bullying. “Its important that the issue is addressed by protecting individuals, especially our county’s young people from the devastating effects of these on-line actions,” he told Donegal Daily.Fianna Fáil is proposing a major shift in the law to protect people, particularly children, from cyber-bullying.Under new legislation from Fianna Fáil it will be offence to engage in cyber-bullying and it will also be an offence to assist it or encourage it.This would be the first time the offence of cyber-bullying would be defined in Irish law. Deputy Robert Troy, FF’s Spokesman on Children said so far cyber-bullying has only had consequences for the victims but now is the time to make sure there are consequences for the perpetrators too.“A report by the Special Rapporteur on Child Protection Geoffrey Shannon has said the growth of cyber-bullying has “almost overnight created a readily accessible forum for bullies to target children with little or no regulation or sanction.”“Cyber-bullying and the emergence of online hate campaigns are a major issue, particularly for teenagers at the moment, and we need a strong basis in law to help tackle it. The recent tragic deaths of a number of children who were allegedly the victims of cyber-bullying underscore the need to address this for the health and wellbeing of young people.“A recent survey found that incidences of cyber-bullying among Irish teenagers were among the highest in among 26 European countries surveyed. Cyber-bullying is carried out by text, picture or video-clip, phone calls, emails, on social media, in chat rooms and through instant messaging. Our Bill makes cyber-bullying a specific offence for the first time in Irish law. It makes provision for parents to attend mandatory parenting courses and only provides for criminal prosecution when a parent continuously and knowingly permits cyber bullying by their child.“The legislation states that parents will be deemed to have committed an offence where they know cyber-bullying is taking place and they don’t take any steps to stop it from continuing. Any parents found guilty of cyber-bullying would initially be required to engage with parenting courses but in serious and persistent cases people could face a prison sentence of up to two years and a fine of up to €20,000 or both. It’s important to say however that any trials of under 18’s would be dealt with in the Children’s Court. “There is a balance to be struck in how we deal with cyber-bullying. Awareness campaigns and better education are an essential part of that but I believe strong sanctions are needed as well to act as a deterrent. Failing to tackle this issue head-on will only result in more distress for the people who are targeted by bullies.”O DOMHNAILL BACKS PLANS TO MAKE CYBER-BULLYING A CRIMINAL OFFENCE was last modified: November 12th, 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:BRIAN O’DOMHNAILLcyber-bullyinglast_img read more

DD TRAVEL: GUTSY CHARITY FIGHTS FOR MORE RESOURCES FOR CROHN’S AND COLITIS PATIENTS

first_imgDD HEALTH: The Irish Society for Crohn’s and Colitis (ISCC) has launched its manifesto to highlight much-needed resources for those suffering from the debilitating effects of the chronic disease.ISCC marked World IBD Day this week by producing a “IBD Manifesto” to raise awareness of the challenges faced by patients and called for all patients to have access to a Specialist IBD Nurse.It is thought that at least 20,000 people are living with IBD in Ireland.There were 5.9 new cases of Crohn’s disease in Ireland per 100,000 population in 2011 and 14.9 new cases of ulcerative colitis (although the incidence of Crohn’s disease is higher than ulcerative colitis in children). Males and females are affected equally and patients can be diagnosed at any age, including babies and children.The peak age of incidence is between the ages of 15 and 35, with a second (smaller) peak from the 50s to 70s.IBD diagnosed in children can behave differently and can be treated differently to that diagnosed in adults.Both conditions come under the heading of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in which the digestive system is impaired and the gut becomes inflamed and swollen. Symptoms may, however, ‘flare up’, from time to time.In some cases, when parts of the colon may become too inflamed, patients may need surgery.Symptoms of IBD vary from person to person:the affected area of the intestinedepth of inflammationextent of inflammationSigns and symptoms of Crohn’s diseasepersistent diarrhoeafever (sometimes in the form of night sweats)fatigueanaemianausea, vomitingcramps, abdominal painSigns and symptoms of ulcerative colitisdiarrhoea, often with mucus containing bloodtenesmusbleeding from the bottomfatigueanaemiacramps, abdominal painfever occurs in severe casesweight loss is less common than in Crohn’s disease The manifesto lays out a series of evidence-based recommendations to inform effective service planning and targeted resource allocation for patients today and into the future, says the charity.It calls on an a National Strategy for Crohn’s and Colitis to provide an overall framework to deliver key elements set out in the manifesto.They can be summarised as follows:Equitable access to an IBD Nurse and multidisciplinary care team.Self-care and patient empowerment.Sustainable funding model. An immediate concern for the ISCC is to address the national shortage of specialist IBD nurses.In says: “They play a crucial role in improving health outcomes for people living with IBD.We want to tell everyone about the importance of Specialist IBD nurses who understand their needs and can provide the right kind of support when they most need it.”For more information visit: http://www.iscc.ieDD TRAVEL: GUTSY CHARITY FIGHTS FOR MORE RESOURCES FOR CROHN’S AND COLITIS PATIENTS was last modified: May 20th, 2016 by John2Share 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:Crohn’s diseaseIrish Society for Crohn’s and Colitis (ISCC)last_img read more

DONEGAL LADS JOIN THE TARTAN ARMY AT CELTIC PARK!

first_imgThese Donegal fans living in Glasgow braved the wrath of the Tartan Army by burying themselves amongst the partisan Scottish support during tonight’s Euro 2016 qualifier between the two teams.Sean O’Donnell, Noel Forker, Gavin Gavigan and Daniel Sweeney proudly wore their Ireland jerseys despite getting tickets for the Scotland end for the crunch qualifier at Celtic Park tonight.Sean O’Donnell sent us in the snap this evening with the following caption, “We’re getting plenty of flak from the ‘bigots’ behind us but we don’t care, COYBIG! The four lads are all originally from the Rosses but emigrated to Glasgow in search of employment.With just 3,000 tickets allocated to Irish fans, the lads knew they’d have to go through the SFA to get tickets, even though they inevitably came in for flak.O’Donnell said, “They gave us plenty of flak, but the ‘smelly socks’ messed up their own national anthem at the start, we had a good laugh at them about that.However, unfortunately for the lads they would cop more flak as Scotland went on to win the match following a stunning goal by Shaun Maloney with just fifteen minutes left to play. However, we salute their bravery, but unfortunately the Tartan Army had the final laugh on a miserable night for Ireland.DONEGAL LADS JOIN THE TARTAN ARMY AT CELTIC PARK! was last modified: November 14th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:newsSportlast_img read more

Letterkenny Credit Union – Your first stop for Third Level education loans

first_imgA new education loan at an affordable 7.2% APR* has been launched at the Letterkenny Credit Union.With third level education costs continuing to spiral in Ireland, the financial pressure of putting a child through college has taken its toll on household budgets. Last year’s survey of third level costs by the Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) showed that a substantial 60% of parents were falling into debt to fund third level education.A considerable 87% were supporting their children financially while they attended college and on average, these parents contributed just under €450 per month per child. 62% of family budgets were adversely affected by the third level registration fee alone according to the study. Letterkenny Credit Union has always been on hand to assist parents in the Letterkenny area with meeting these costs, and a new education loan at a very affordable 7.2% APR* has just been launched. Letterkenny Credit Union can ensure that the loan terms are structured in a way to suit every individual situation best. There are no hidden payments or transaction fees, and the loan is less expensive than using a credit card or moneylender.Paul Hume Chairperson from Letterkenny Credit Union said: “We are keenly aware of the huge financial burden that third level education places on students and their families in the Letterkenny area and we would encourage parents and students alike to contact us. We know from our survey last year that parents are saving for an average of eight years to put their children through college and 68% of students were working during the college term to help make ends meet. We understand that because of the significant costs, many may have no option but to borrow. We would really encourage them to talk to us about our education loan in the first instance.”In addition, Letterkenny Credit Union is offering 4 students the opportunity to receive €1000 to help them with the costs of going to college. Applications for the student bursary can be collected from the credit union office and must be returned by 1st of September 2017. The winners will be selected via a lottery system. *Cost of FinanceFor a €10,000, 5 year variable interest rate loan with 60 monthly repayments of €197.80, an interest Rate of 6.95%, a representative APR of 7.2%, the total amount payable by the member is €11,867.79 Information correct as at 11th July 2017.For further information please contact: Letterkenny Credit Union on 074 91 24166 or email info@letterkennycu.ieLetterkenny Credit Union – Your first stop for Third Level education loans was last modified: July 21st, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:educationLetterkenny Credit Unionstudent loanThird levellast_img read more
