The pandemic forces to recalibrate the plans of several historical

first_imgThe coronavirus pandemic has slowed down the life plans of the world inhabitants. In soccer, specifically, this primarily considerations contractual conditions. Efforts have been made to give authorized type in unison to the incontrovertible fact that the championships won’t finish on schedule and that gamers who terminated their contract at the finish of the yr can conclude their dedication to their membership with out challenge. However there’s a group, or fairly an age vary, through which issues get much more difficult, or, on the opposite, they may be favored by the austerity that’s introduced in the subsequent market. These are the historical, veterans who’ve already handed even the 35 and who proceed to give battle and had the intention of persevering with to accomplish that. If we have a look at Italy, there are several circumstances of legends who resist leaving it, however with circumstances. Ibrahimovic is the one who’s most at the overhang. The 38-year-old Swede had come to Milan in January to give the workforce a bathe of confidence. The coronavirus has positioned him on the path of withdrawal, though he has left the door open for him to proceed in the Lombard membership or in one other if the state of affairs turns into clear. Sharper appears the rapid destiny on the half of Juve’s outdated guard. It’s anticipated that Buffon (42 years) and Chiellini (35) announce your renewal for yet one more yr. It reveals in the goalkeeper that he’s nonetheless pursuing the dream of the Champions League. TO Parolo one thing comparable occurs to him in Lazio. The captain of the celestial workforce, 35, hopes to renew a yr to hear the competitors’s tune with the capital membership. Thiago Silva appeared out of PSG and may now proceed.The austerity of the market could also be the trick to be adopted additionally by these older gamers.

There was discuss of his substitutes then in France with the identical pressure with which he now makes a doable extension of yet one more yr as a result of it might not be really easy to discover an alternative to him. In the identical state of affairs is the elegant Leyghton Baines. It appeared that his skinny left foot was irreparably away from Everton, however now info is rising through which he’s being renewed in order that the Ancelotti workforce doesn’t have to go to the market to signal a substitute. In England, additionally ends contract David Silva. In the case of the 34-year-old canary, it’s a query of understanding which workforce will handle to get their providers for the subsequent season. Al-sadd Midfield participantSpain Gabi The most specific case in Spain is that of Aduriz.

President Sirleaf Wants More Processing Opportunities for Women Farmers

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf recently visited Songai Liberia which is one of Liberia’s potential agriculture projects in Bensonville and spotted the production of various pieces of agro-equipment produced by the T.R. Enterprise, a local producer of agro processing tools.Finance and Economic Development minister, Amara Konneh, Agriculture Minister, Florence Chenoweth, Montserrado representative and chairperson on the Houses Committee on Agriculture in the House of Representatives,  Josephine Francis, and other distinguished personalities were all present during the President’s visit.She seemed very impressed when she was told that the various pieces of  processing equipment were produced right here in Liberia by Liberian entrepreneurs.While chatting with the production manager and other government officials, the Liberian leader underscored the need for increased processing opportunities for women farmers in Liberia.Women comprised of nearly seventy percent of the farming population of Liberia serving as producers, processors and marketers.The Liberian leader disclosed plans for her government to build the capacity of the local agro-processing company (T R Enterprise) in order to produce more of the products for use by women farmers in the country.This initiative pronounced by the President, when carried out, would greatly enhance opportunities for women farmers in Liberia.It is recalled that in August of this year, this newspaper highlighted the poor processing conditions of a group of women farmers in Gbarnga, Bong County, named “Walikama farming group.”   These women farmers are engaged in the production and processing of cassava but they processed the product manually. They appealed to the government and non-governmental organizations to provide them with processing equipment to improve their income.   One of the key constraints to Liberia’s food industry is the provision of limited mechanization and agro-processing tools. This posed a serious challenge of markets  for local farmers as raw produce is usually bought at local markets at low prices. It is established that once farmers have access to processing equipment their productivity increases.Most of the agro-processing tools used in Liberia are imported from Ghana and other countries. The production of more processing equipment in Liberia would help improve the food industry as farmers can get these farming tools at affordable prices.Unless this capacity is enhanced, it is unlikely that Liberian farmers will benefit from increased market opportunities.As part of effort to address the above production challenge, the “T.R. Enterprise” is working to produce agro-equipment locally to enhance the contribution of agro-processing for sustainable improvement in food security  and the livelihoods of farmers, processors and marketers.The T.K. Enterprise was established in 2011 to help in the promotion of Liberia’s food security through the production, sale and training of local farmers in utilizing agro-tools.At first, the business stated with the importation of agro-implement from Ghana for sale, until in recent times, when local materials were fermented and produced in Liberia.The company provides processing equipment like, Stainless Steel Grater and Gari Mesh Sifter, S/S fermentation rack and double screw press, Stainless steel parching trays. Other equipment includes motorized oil palm expeller. In a related development, Finance and Development Planning Minister Amara Konneh said that government had mobilized more resources externally to support agriculture. What is more needed is to ensure that the resources are put in to proper use to improve food production.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Excerpt From Boy, Interrupted Chapter 10

first_imgIt was the sound of gunfire that woke us up. It began at about six thirty in the morning, and sounded just within a stone’s throw, a staccato burst of gunfire followed by heavy explosions. We ran out into the yard. From the neighbouring houses people were running away, their travelling bags on their heads. In the distance the shooting went on without a pause. Huge columns of smoke rose as though from a chimney.Suddenly our landlord, Mr Kumeh, along with his wife and children, came running out of their house. ‘The rebels here,’ cried Mr Kumeh. ‘Right now they at Red Light Market.’Red Light Market was a mere ten minutes’ drive from the house. That meant the rebels would appear at any moment.Mr Kumeh turned on his heels. Carrying a travelling bag on his shoulder, his wife and children running close behind, they all disappeared up the road.We ran back into our house. Our travelling bags had been packed already. I grabbed one of the bags and put it on my head. The girls took the others. We ran out of the house. My uncle locked the door and put the keys in his trouser pocket.On the tarred road was a stream of cars and people, packed together like sardines. At the roadblocks the soldiers were stopping cars and demanding bribes. Sometimes they pulled a man out of his car and began to beat him. By the roadside a few men sat sprawled with their hands on their heads. One of them had a deep gash on his forehead. The left side of his face was covered with blood, which had since dried, and had turned the colour of rust. The right eye of another man had swollen as big as his fist. He was crying loudly. At one point a soldier left one of the roadblocks and booted him in the ribs, warning the man that if he did not shut up he would be shot. But the man only fell to whimpering, like an injured dog.I saw Ballah standing at one of the roadblocks. This time he did not carry an M16 assault rifle but a machine gun, the cartridge belt running from shoulder to shoulder. I couldn’t believe my eyes. The former driver looked like Rambo – straight out of the movies. He caught me looking at him. For a brief moment we looked at eachother, and then he turned his face away. Then I couldn’t see him any more for the crowd.Suddenly a shell exploded nearby. Everybody except the soldiers at the roadblocks broke into a run. But I saw some of them duck for cover. Close by me two small children ran barefoot. The eldest was about five years old, the younger one about three.‘Where y’all goin’?’ I shouted as loud as I could, in order to be heard over thenoise of running footsteps and the staccato burst of gunfire behind us.‘We runnin way,’ the bigger one said.‘Where yor ma and pa?’‘I na know.’I watched as the two little girls ran, disappearing into the crowd.As we ran I suddenly thought about Kou, and looked round me. Patience and Garmai were running, not far in front of me, my uncle and his wife were close behind. Kou was nowhere to be seen. I stopped running and cried out, ‘Where Kou?’My uncle and his wife heard me, and stopped in their tracks. Together we shouted at Patience and Garmai to stop. They stopped running and looked at us in confusion.‘Where Kou?’ I shouted again.Patience and Garmai ran back to us. ‘What happened, Tarnue?’ Garmai asked.‘We can’t see Kou,’ I said.‘But she was here jes now,’ Patience said.‘Where?’ My uncle asked.‘I can’t remember,’ Patience said. ‘But I saw her somewhere.’‘Let’s go look for her,’ my uncle said.‘No, let’s stay together,’ his wife protested. ‘If we go to look for Kou we will lose one of the children again. And the shooting is coming closer.’Garmai and Patience were crying.My uncle’s wife said, ‘Y’all should have stayed together.’‘You can’t blame them,’ my uncle said. ‘We are all running.’I thought of going back to the roadblock where I had seen Ballah, to ask him to help us look for Kou. But when I thought of the way he had acted at the Karnweas’ house, along with the other soldiers, how he might have had a hand in the killing of Mr andMrs Karnwea, I did not want to have anything to do with him.‘We will just have to leave Kou and go,’ my uncle’s wife said. ‘The fighting iscoming closer.’My uncle nodded his head.Along with the girls I too began to cry.For a few moments we stood looking round us, thinking we might find Kou by the look of the red travelling bag she was carrying. My uncle, who was the tallest, could see furthest ahead.But it was all in vain.Then a second shell again exploded in the distance behind us.We began to run again. As we ran I looked back again and again, thinking I might see Kou, but it was no use. We had lost her, and there was nothing we could do about it. All through that morning and well into the afternoon we ran for our lives, stopping briefly from time to time. I was thirsty and my throat felt dry, like sandpaper. Towards evening we met a pickup along the road, which belonged to a fat, distinguished-looking, balding man in his fifties. He was wearing a pair of gold-rimmed glasses and blue running shoes. The car had broken down along the road and the man had opened the hood and was trying to fix it. Sweat bounced off his forehead. He was talking to himself and looked agitated. A woman who must have been his wife sat beside the road, a boy of about three years old on her lap. Their belongings were packed at the back of the pickup, a clutter of large suitcases. My uncle asked the man where he was heading, and he said he was going to Cape Mount.‘That is where we goin too,’ my uncle said. ‘My wife’s mother lives in Cape Mount.’The man nodded his head impatiently. ‘Do you know how to fix a car?’‘Yes,’ my uncle said. ‘I’m a mechanic.’‘How much would it cost to fix my car?’ the man asked.‘I don’t want money,’ my uncle said. ‘I’ll fix the car for free. You can drive us to Cape Mount.’‘All right,’ the man said, and shook hands with my uncle.Within a few minutes the pickup was on the road. We jumped in the back with the suitcases. We were so crammed at the back I soon began to feel cramps in my legs. The fat man’s wife sat at the passenger’s front seat with her little boy. Patience and Garmai were still crying for Kou. I cried, too, but kept my voice to myself. When we told the man and his wife what had happened, they tried to soothe us.But Patience and Garmai cried until we reached a roadblock. At the roadblock was a motley group of government soldiers, some in battered army boots with their toes peeking out of them. They ordered the car off the road. One of them came to the car,brandishing a 50-calibre pistol, his eyes the colour of red hot pepper.‘Everybodey geh down,’ he said, and nearly dragged the fat man from behind the wheel.Another soldier came to the car. ‘Where y’all goin?’The fat man said, ‘We’re going to Cape Mount.’The soldier with the pistol looked the fat man up and down. I saw his bloodshot eyes settle on the man’s gold-rimmed glasses, and then the silver watch round the man’s left wrist. And his eyes glinted with amusement.The other said, ‘Anybodey da go where the rebel eh da rebel. Y’all goin join dem, like all deh Gio and Mano dogs.’My uncle said, ‘My family and I are from Barnesville. The fighting is close near there, and we can’t stay in our house.’The soldier pointed to the fat man. ‘Deh man da yor broder?’‘No, he’s not my brother,’ my uncle said. ‘His car broke down on the road, and I helped him fix it. He’s going to Cape Mount, and that is where everybody going.’‘Talk for yorsef,’ the soldier with the pistol shouted, slapping my uncle across the face.My uncle squinted and rubbed the right side of his face.‘Put yor hand down,’ the soldier said, raising his hand as though to slap my uncle again.My uncle dropped his arms at his sides and became stiff, like a statue.‘Yor put everythin down fom deh car,’ the one with the pistol said. ‘When we fin gun inside y’all fini.’We began hurriedly to unload the things at the back of the pickup. Within a few moments everything was on the ground.The other soldier said, ‘Yor sit down on the ground.’We had begun to sit when the soldier with the pistol grabbed the fat man by the back of his trousers and hoisted him up violently.‘I beg y’all,’ the fat man’s wife said. ‘He’s my husband. He’s never seen the rebels before.’‘Shutup,’ said the one with the pistol.The other soldier took a step towards the woman, raising his fist as though to hit her in the face. She cringed and sat trembling. Her little boy was crying.The two soldiers called another soldier to keep watch over us. He was a young man of about eighteen with a red handkerchief tied round his head. He was shouldering a rifle. The two soldiers began to push the fat man in front of them, kicking him and hitting him with their fists every time he turned round to beg. The soldier keeping watch over us walked towards my uncle and me, and without warning, knocked our heads together. And then he burst out laughing.A few minutes later the fat man came back. I could hardly recognise him. His gold-rimmed glasses were gone, and so was his wristwatch. He bowed his head sobbing and muttering to himself. They had taken off his shirt and trousers. He was only in a pair of light blue undershorts and white undershirt. I felt sorry for him. The soldiers shouted at us to get up and go.The fat man and his wife took only a travelling bag, leaving the rest of their things on the road, the pickup, even. They said they did not want to go to Cape Mount any more, and went in another direction. We took our travelling bags and joined a small crowd.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Sergio Ramos: ‘I never wanted to leave Real Madrid’

first_img1 Sergio Ramos and Real Madrid president Florentino Perez at a press conference to announce the defender’s new five-year contract with the club Sergio Ramos has denied claims he wanted to leave Real Madrid this summer, with the defender insisting it was always his plan to retire at the famous club.The defender was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League with Manchester United this summer, but ended one of the summer’s most high profile transfer sagas by signing a new five-year contract with at the Bernabeu on Monday.Reports from Spain had previously suggested Ramos was keen to leave the La Liga giants having become frustrated by life under an intense spotlight from media and fans.But the Los Blancos captain is adamant there was no truth in the claims and that he never wanted to leave Real Madrid.“I know this renewal has taken a while but my heart and head have always been with Real Madrid so I couldn’t be happier,” he said in a press conference.“I’ve never spoken about my renewal. With a contract that had two years to go, whatever the press want to say I respect but the reality is a bit different.“My idea was to always be here and I always wanted to retire here if the president would allow it, and I’m thankful I have a new challenge to be the captain of this team. The priority is always Real Madrid, keeping our fans happy and winning titles.“I’m being honest I never said I wanted to leave, I was quiet. I never said anything out of respect for my team-mates and the president, I never rang the office to ask for more money. I’m just very happy that I have renewed and I want to stay here for the rest of my career.“At the end of the day I have been here almost my whole life. My first year was in Sevilla and the rest of my life has been here, that is sufficient motive to want to stay. There is nothing like this institution. My own happiness is the priority, in the end that was fundamental.”United were reportedly ready to offer Ramos a pay rise in a bid to lure him to Old Trafford after he was identified as one of Louis van Gaal’s main transfer targets.But, having been a Real Madrid player for a decade, the former Sevilla youngster said money is not his main concern.“Honestly, if it was an economic decision I wouldn’t have stayed,” he said.“It wasn’t a question of money. There were personal and professional things that I needed to organise and that is all sorted.“It is reality that I wasn’t happy in certain ways. I never said I wanted to leave but I spoke to the people I needed to speak to and couldn’t continue how I was. Those personal things were nothing to do with money.“The economic situation, the president and I solved that in five minutes. There were other things to talk about – past, present and future. Now everything is cleared up I’m excited to get everyone together and try and win. Everything is cleared up now, I’m very happy to be here.”Ramos added that he is counting on the continued support of the club’s fans now that his protracted contract talks have come to a satisfactory conclusion.“I think they will always receive me with the same affection they always have,” he said, when asked what sort of reaction he expected from the supporters.“I have never felt anything untoward in this stadium and as long as the fans love me that is one of the important things that helped me to stay.“The fans will always ask a lot of you but the footballers of Real Madrid know we have pressure and responsibility, and I hope I will have the same affection I have always had.”last_img read more

BEDS TO RE-OPEN AT DUNGLOE HOSPITAL, SAYS DONEGAL TD

first_imgBEDS closed at Dungloe Hospital are to re-open within four weeks, Donegal TD Pearse Doherty said today.And the X-Ray unit at the hospital will stay open this summer and not close as has happened in recent years.Speaking after the Regional Health Forum briefing by HSE officials to Donegal Oireachtas members in Letterkenny today, Deputy Doherty said: “The HSE confirmed at today’s briefing that 5 of the 10 beds that were closed at Dungloe Community Hospital were to be reopened within the next 4 weeks due to arrangements made to deploy HSE employed home help workers to staff the beds. “This is a very welcome development and I commend my colleague Cllr Marie Therese Gallagher and the local community for the work in highlighting the bed closures and for mobilising public support for the retention of the beds.“It is my understanding that a similar proposal which originated from SIPTU is under consideration for Carndonagh Community Hospital and I hope to see this come to fruition shortly. I am calling on the HSE to explore if a similar arrangement can be made to retain the beds at St Joseph’s Community Hospital, which are also threatened with closure.“While I welcome this development and the efforts made by HSE management locally to retain community hospital services, it is imperative that the recruitment moratorium imposed by the Government on the HSE is lifted and investment is made in our community hospitals in order to ensure the remaining beds are reopened and an appropriate level of service is maintained and developed in the long term.”He added: “I also welcome the confirmation received today that the Xray Department in Dungloe Community Hospital will not close in the summer months as it has in previous years. This is testament to the huge demand for the service that exists and will be very welcome in the local area. It will also ease the burden on the service in Letterkenny General Hospital and I hope it can remain open in future years during the summer months also.”  BEDS TO RE-OPEN AT DUNGLOE HOSPITAL, SAYS DONEGAL TD was last modified: June 7th, 2013 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:BEDS TO RE-OPEN AT DUNGLOE HOSPITALSAYS DONEGAL TDlast_img read more
