ECOWAS’ Rep. Calls for Equipped Health Facilities at Borders

first_imgThe Special Representative of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Commission to Liberia, Ambassador Tunde Ajisomo, has called for the sponsoring of a proposal that would be geared towards the construction of fully equipped health posts at Liberia’s border communities.According him, these posts would create a sense of belonging to residents of bordering towns and villages.Ambassador Ajisomo also called on the Mano River Union’s (MRU) membership to cooperate and collaborate with the rest of ECOWAS’ member states.He said ECOWAS would work with its members to provide assistance to its host communities. Ambassador Ajisomo made the statement when he paid a courtesy call on Internal Affairs Minister, Morris Dukuly at his Capitol Hill office.During the meeting, the envoy assured the Minister of ECOWAS’ readiness to work closely with the Ministry towards advancing integration projects in Liberia and in the sub-region. In response, Internal Affairs Minister Morris Dukuly recounted the role of ECOWAS, especially in the days of the civil war when countries deployed troops in Liberia. Minister Dukuly welcomed the plan by ECOWAS, saying it would strengthen relationships at the borders and strengthen trade, sustainable development and security. He said it was time to begin building a peaceful infrastructure that included trans-border trade and open markets between MRU countries. The MIA boss told the ECOWAS envoy that discussions are underway that were initiated by the Liberian government to introduce what he called the “MRU Peacebuilding and Reconciliation Trust fund.” The Minister said the MRU Peace building and Reconciliation Trust fund would be supported by all members of the Union.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Africa Has a Destiny’

first_imgThe founder of the African Bible College University (ABCU) in the mining town of Yekapa, Nimba County has said that ‘Africa has a destiny’ owing to the continent’s rich historical accounts.Rev/Dr. John W. Chinchen made the disclosure when he served as orator during program marking the 13th Commencement Convocation of the ABCU, held on May 10, 2014.Dr. Chinchen said the writing of Africa’s rich history was long prophesied by the Prophet Isaiah about 2600 years ago when the Prophet spoke of the birth of Jesus Christ.Reading from the Isaiah Chapter 18, Rev/Dr Chinchen explained said that some of what Isaiah prophesized came to pass, including the birth of Jesus Christ.Recounting on his journey to Liberia, Rev. Chinchen explained that when he came to Liberia in 1970 while on his missionary journey, there were lots of difficulties he encountered. Some the difficulties, according to him, occurred in Sinoe County which “really got me downhearted, but with the reading from Isaiah Chapter 18, I was comforted as I got the answer.”He said, Isaiah prophecies about the lands beyond the rivers of Ethiopia as quoted in Isaiah 18, gave him clue to navigate the position of the Book at that time. According to the clergy, he felt that the lands were South Sahara Africa.With this prophecy, he said, “Africa has a great destiny and therefore, challenged the graduates to consider this as their destiny.”The African Bible Collage–University (ABCU) on the May 10, 2014 graduated 25 students who formed the third Commencement Convocation since the institution reopened following the end of the country’s 14-long year crisis.The University is offering three courses including Biblical studies, Education and Mass Communication.The ABC-U was founded in 1979 by Rev/Dr. John W. Chinchen, and his wife, Nell Chinchen with the aim to train Christian leaders for the service in Africa and the rest of the world.The university was founded with the vision to spread the gospel through the teaching of the Bible across Africa as it was envisioned in the heart of Dr. and Mrs. Chinchen after they had spent seven years as missionaries in the interior of Liberia training pastors and assisting in the operations of the ENI Mission School in Sinoe.During that time, the couple recognized the need to establish a college to meet the educational and spiritual needs of the secondary school graduates.As the result, the Chinchens designed four-year courses at the university standard that would hold to the highest academic standards, and meet the qualification to offer a Bachelor of Arts Degree.ABCU was granted university status in October 2008 by authorities at the National Commission on Higher Education of Liberia where institution gained university full status.The president of the university is Dr. Amos B. Miamen— a native of Liberia. He was among the first graduates of the ABCU when the college opened its academic door in 1979. Earlier in his welcome remark, Dr. Miamen commended the government and the local leadership of Nimba County for their supports. He added that the ABC University was dedicated to its core values of providing quality education, academic excellence, respect for all human beings, and the genuine demonstration of faith in learning.The occasion was attended by the president of the University of Liberia, Dr. Emmet Dennis, Dr. Bert of Gedeh County Community College, Nimba County Education Officer, the Country Director of SIM, Will Elphick,  the Country Director of Samaritan’s Purse –Liberia, Kendell Kauffeldt as well as parents and loved ones of the graduates.Lofa County Senator George Tingben, who is an Alumnus of the institution, was also among those in attendance.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

“Massive” people smuggling racket exists in Guyana – PPP

first_img…calls out Govt for refusal to address situationThe unaccounted figures for thousands of immigrants entering Guyana and failing to leave have led the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) to call out Government on a smuggling racket, which it has failed to address.Opposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoThe accusation was made on Friday after statistics revealed that thousands of immigrants, especially Haitians, are unaccounted for when the arrival and departure figures are examined.“The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) believes that there is a massive people-smuggling racket and inaction cannot be the order of the day. This is an issue that was raised a year ago and the APNU/AFC coalition has refused to address it,” the party said in a statement.The issue surfaced around the departure of foreign nationals, which indicated a smaller number of persons leaving the country than the initial arrival figure.The Parliamentary Committee, the party noted, examined statistics provided by Minister Winston Felix himself for the period of 2015 to April 30, 2018. The immigration figures showed that a total of 93,374 Cubans arrived in Guyana, but only 76,663 were recorded to have left. “This meant that 16,711 Cubans were unaccounted for and probably still in Guyana. With regards to the Haitians, for the same period, a total of 6245 arrived in Guyana, but only 963 were recorded to have left. Again like the Cubans, a large number of 5282 Haitians were also unaccounted for and probably in Guyana.”President David GrangerAccording to the party, the more recent exposés – detailing the arrival of over 8600 Haitians in the last seven months – have focused on one group of foreign nationals, but the issue at hand involves other nationals, including Cubans. This may just be the tip of the iceberg.Two Government Ministers – Felix and then Minister of Foreign Affairs, Carl Greenidge –were called out for this worrying issue and over unacceptable statements that were recently made by the Citizenship Minister.Felix had remarked that these persons are using Guyana to visit other countries but the PPP reminded of other correlated issues such as human trafficking which are embedded in these errors.“Minister of Citizenship, Winston Felix, has been quoted as saying that he believes that the Haitians are using Guyana as a stepping-stone to other countries, including Brazil, Suriname and French Guiana. It is alarming that this is the position of a Minister who should be concerned with the correlated issues of national security and human trafficking,” the statement read.Citizenship Minister Winston FelixMeanwhile, Finance Minister, Winston Jordan was quoted as saying that foreigners are more attractive workers than locals, as they work for less. The party stated that Guyanese will be affected even more in the employment network if such issues persist. Already, thousands of jobs have been lost and youths continue to face difficulties in gaining employment.“That this is the position of Guyana’s Finance Minister – effectively supporting the displacement of Guyanese from the job market, at a time when Guyana has recorded 30,000 jobs lost in the last four years – is unacceptable.”The party called on the relevant authorities to treat this trend with the importance it commands.Concerns were also raised about reports that foreign nationals are being issued with Guyanese documents, allowing them to be registered as eligible Guyanese voters in the ongoing House-to-House Registration.The PPP’s document added, “Further, the party is primarily worried that these foreign nationals are being issued with Guyanese documents, which would allow them to be registered as eligible Guyanese voters in the ongoing House-to-House Registration being done by the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM). The plan afoot seems to be one that envisages the padding of the voters’ list with fictitious persons.”Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has demonstrated worry over these issues repeatedly. The party reiterated calls for President David Granger to address the matter as one of importance and urgency, holding responsible agencies into account.“The People’s Progressive Party firmly believes that Minister Felix is neck-deep in this matter and is complicit by his refusal to investigate this matter. One may wonder why this Minister is so vociferous in denying this racket, which is so patently obvious. The PPP is not convinced that the Minister is so obtuse. We believe that he knows who the facilitators are, including those in his Department of Citizenship. Minister Felix must be held accountable for what is happening,” the party said in a strongly-worded statement.The party reiterated its call for a full-fledged investigation into the matter and also called on President David Granger to abandon his usual posture of silence in the face of the scandals embroiling his Administration and address this matter with urgency.“…The magnitude of this operation has to involve the Guyana Revenue Authority, the Immigration Department, the Guyana Registrar’s Office and the airline; these must come clean on the worrying state of affairs,” the party said.last_img read more

Governor promises priority for reform of state’s `disastrous’ health care system

first_imgMonday’s meeting was the launch of a series of AARP-organized forums on California health care reform and the start of a statewide multimedia advertising blitz to publicize the issue announced by the influential senior advocacy group’s CEO, Bill Novelli. Novelli praised the governor’s decision to put health care at the top of his agenda. The system is “out of control,” he said, with more than 6 million Californians uninsured and those with coverage worrying about affording or keeping it. The Legislature, Novelli said, must “cross party lines and solve the problems … and make California the dynamite that breaks the national logjam.” Before a short written question-and-answer session, three women told their personal stories of health insurance problems. Among them was 27-year-old Kathryn Bowns of Altadena, who said she was refused coverage after graduation from UC Berkeley ended her student insurance. • Photo Gallery: Governor Touts Health Care Reform PASADENA – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger gave a guarantee Monday that California’s “disastrous” health care system will be reformed this year and become a model for the nation. Speaking to an audience of about 200 AARP members at a town hall-style meeting at the Pasadena Convention Center, the governor said he was confident the Legislature could put aside partisan differences and agree on how to make health insurance mandatory and available to all. “I am very persistent,” Schwarzenegger said. “We can come together in a bipartisan or past-partisan way … bringing together the smartest and best ideas. I guarantee this year we will have comprehensive health care and become a model for the rest of the country and for Washington.” “I filled in applications for Kaiser and Blue Cross and was denied for a pre-existing \ condition, that I had seen a doctor in the last 10 years and had taken medication,” Bowns said, adding she got insurance after being wait-listed for state major-risk coverage. “I take two tiny little pills at bedtime, yet was considered too high risk to even consider insuring.” Schwarzenegger said everyone pays for the uninsured, calling it a $40.7 billion “hidden tax” that raises premiums and puts an intolerable burden on hospitals and emergency rooms, where the uninsured often go for routine treatment. “The way we stop it is by insuring everyone,” he said. Guaranteed universal coverage would “create a bigger risk pool” and would not jack up premiums, he said, since insurers would be required to allot only 15 percent of revenue for administrative costs and profit, leaving 85 percent for care. Among the governor’s proposals are raising Medi-Cal rates to encourage greater provider participation and reimbursement; allowing people to make pre-tax contributions to a personal healthcare savings account; and expanding access to public programs, such as Medi-Cal, to very low-income residents. Before the meeting, Mayor Bill Bogaard said health care was one of the major issues facing the state and the country. “I’m proud of Pasadena Public Health Department and the nonprofits, such as Young & Healthy, that provide such important service,” he said. “But we fall far short with the percentage of this community uninsured. It’s tragic and embarrassing.” janette.williams@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4482 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Eminent domain weighed

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant The south parking structure would consume 14 parcels owned by five owners, the north structure would cover eight parcels owned by six owners and the north civic building would cover 10 parcels owned by seven owners. The owner of German Autohaus, whose repair shop at 9th Street and Railroad Avenue sits where the north lot is planned, questions the planners’ logic. “In a prime real estate market to put a parking structure four stories high (there) doesn’t make sense from an economic standpoint,” said Joseph Jasik. “I don’t go to the war until I have an enemy. I’m waiting to see what happens.” Jasik said he would close up shop if he has no choice but to relocate. Proposals must conform to specifications in the newly adopted Downtown Newhall Specific Plan, adopted in December by the City Council. Retooled zoning codes will permit denser commercial development. Applicants will be judged by design and financial criteria. The two-step selection process begins with a review by planners, traffic engineers and designers and ends in the hands of financial advisers. The city has asked eight developers to submit proposals, but officials encourage property owners to submit their own plans. “If they are well-done proposals in keeping with the intent of plan, the city may end up working with the property owners directly – in many cases it may be the easiest course of action,” Brotzman said. “If the (developer’s proposal) is significantly better and would have a greater beneficial impact on development, the city has the responsibility to consider that proposal.” The city has committed $7 million to the renovation. About $1.6 million has been spent acquiring two properties in the area. Developers will be expected to exhaust every option in striking deals with property owners, officials have said. Several parcels may need to be bundled to create large enough spaces to accommodate big development projects. Chris Price, the city’s project manager for the redevelopment, said “we would use eminent domain to assemble properties if people don’t want to sell, but that would be the last resort.” Eminent domain is government’s power to take private property for a public use. If the city decides to “assemble” properties for a project and must invoke eminent domain, the property owners would be paid and relocated, Price said. If a developer’s project is chosen, the city would sign a development agreement with the developer. If no headway is made buying the property outright or creating a joint venture with the owner, the developer may ask the city agency to acquire the property. “The agency would negotiate with the owners and if, and only if, the negotiations are unsuccessful, the agency would consider a Resolution of Necessity, the precursor to filing an eminent domain action,” said City Attorney Joe Montes. The process, which includes a hearing, could take up to two years. Four of the five agency members would have to approve a condemnation for action to be taken. Montes said the agency cannot pre-commit to filing the action. “The agency has the absolute discretion to say, No, we’re not going to pull that trigger and the developer goes into the deal understanding that risk,” he said. Brotzman said the city hopes to work with the county library district to build an expanded library in the north civic site. While the current City Council approved the specific plan, three council seats are up for re-election in April.

NEWHALL – In order to develop three sites viewed as key to improving downtown Newhall, the city may resort to invoking eminent domain if officials aren’t satisfied with the property owners’ plans for their land. Such decisions will be up to the Santa Clarita City Council, acting as the city’s redevelopment agency. The agency will look at current uses, developer’s proposals and the property owners’ plans for high-profile sites in the deteriorating business district. “The property owners could choose to proceed or the city could do a request for proposals to develop the community project that would have the greatest impact to revitalize downtown,” said Paul Brotzman, the city’s director of community development. Two parking structures and a civic building are planned for an area spanning 32 parcels, currently in the hands of 18 property owners. last_img read more

Weed Survey thoughts. Did you spray a fall burndown?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Most of us have marestail across Ohio. And pretty much all of us have resistant marestail, likely resistant to glyphosate and also likely resistant to the ALS herbicides. And if we all switch to Xtend beans then it will likely also soon be resistant to dicamba. Uh-oh, this is starting to sound bad for the future of soybean weed control. Table 1. The table below shows the number of fields observed in the Ohio Fall Soybean Weed Survey by region, the percent of fields without weeds and weeds observed ranked by appearance.Region of OhioNumber of fields observed% of fields without weedsAppearance by weed; ranked in orderNortheast29626Marestail; grasses; Common lambsquarters; Volunteer corn; and pigweedsEast central7135Marestail; Giant ragweed; Common ragweed; and Redroot pigweedCentral20645Giant ragweed; MarestailNorthwest75546Marestail; Giant ragweed; Common ragweed; grasses; pigweedsWest central71622Giant ragweed; Marestail; Tall waterhemp; Volunteer corn; grassesSouthwest27033Marestail; Giant ragweed; Volunteer corn; common ragweed; pigweeds I take this information below from an article by Mark Loux, from October 2011 regarding Fall Herbicide Treatments. Guess what, it’s the same situation we are in today. Remember fall 2011 — wet with delayed harvest.We have published this same type of information fairly frequently in C.O.R.N. (http://corn.osu.edu), and our suggestions for fall treatments have not really changed much. Herbicides are applied in the fall primarily for control of an existing infestation of winter annuals or marestail, volunteer wheat, biennials (wild carrot, poison hemlock), or cool-season perennials (dandelion, quackgrass, Canada thistle) that are most susceptible to herbicides in the fall. We have already been asked a number of times how late in the fall herbicides can be applied and still be effective. In our research, herbicides seem to be effective for control of winter annuals and biennials well into December. The rate of plant death can slow considerably, but this is not a problem since weeds just have to die by early spring. Control of perennials typically declines in late November or early December though, depending upon weather.We consider the fall herbicide application to be an essential component of an effective marestail management program, although fall is not where the majority of the money should be spent on managing this weed. Even where the herbicides lack residual, the fall treatment seems to enable more effective control of marestail the following season.There is a core group of herbicide treatments that make sense to use in the fall based on their effectiveness and cost, as follows. On biology and control of marestail look over Mark’s website: https://u.osu.edu/osuweeds/, and see the control factsheet.Glyphosate + 2,4-D can be used in the fall prior to any spring crop.It is the most effective of the treatments shown here on grasses, biennials, and perennials.2,4-D + dicamba (premixes = Weedmaster, Brash, etc) can be used prior to corn or soybeans. This combination controls most broadleaf weeds, but is not as effective as glyphosate-based treatments on dandelion or Canada thistle.Canopy EX or DF (or the generics) + 2,4-D can be used prior to soybeans. The only one of the treatments listed here that provides residual control into the following spring/early summer.last_img read more

Geocaching Unlocks the Secrets of the Earth – Geocaching Weekly Newsletter

first_imgHappy Birthday EarthCachingThe world’s first EarthCache just turned nine. EarthCache I in Australia was created on January 10, 2004 and EarthCaching has been growing up ever since. There are now more than 14,000 active EarthCaches around the globe. Instead of a physical container, EarthCaches use unique geological features as the “find.” Geocachers must then answer questions posted in the geocache description in order to mark the geocache as found. EarthCaches can reveal why rocks crack to look like a brick road or how an eternal flame can flicker behind a gushing waterfall. Get inspired to find an EarthCache with our new EarthCaching video, which takes adventurers to a rare find deep in the mountains.Eternal Flame Falls EarthCacheThis month, the EarthCache guidelines have been updated to clarify the process of development and review. All EarthCaches published after January 1, 2013 must meet these new guidelines. The year ahead will bring more EarthCaching news, including the Second International EarthCache Mega-Event on September 7 in the U.S. state of Utah. More than 500 EarthCache fans are expected to attend.

Government Lab Seeks A Way to Boost Solar Loans

first_imgBoth homeowners and bankers could benefit from an initiative at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory aimed at lowering barriers to more loans for rooftop photovoltaic (PV) installations.NREL’s “Banking on Solar” program brings together more than 50 financial, energy, and research interests to discuss ways of making it easier for homeowners and businesses to borrow money to install solar systems.While lenders are beginning to offer loan products, NREL said in a news release, some barriers remain.“There are many states where third-party finance is unavailable and there are solar customers who may prefer to own their own systems over leasing them,” NREL analyst Travis Lowder said. “A greater prevalence and diversity of loan products could enable higher rates of solar adoption in these markets.”The group is developing standardized loan documents in residential and commercial markets and educating banks and regulators about the solar market. The idea is to show banks how they can diversity their assets and “invest in a market with high growth potential.”NREL said Banking on Solar would host several webinars in the next couple of months so banks could learn more about solar. Group members also plan on attending upcoming banking conferences.last_img read more

Adobe’s New Update Makes the Creative Cloud an Essential Platform

first_imgCharacter AnimatorCharacter Animator now allows animators to perform walk cycles with keyboard controls, record mouth shapes based on voice, and adjust mouth shapes in the timeline with the new Lip Sync tool. Character Animator also added a workspace designed for live broadcast and the ability to connect multiple machines to perform multi-character animations.Team ProjectsTeam Projects gets a few updates, including Dynamic Link support and better project management tools for editing teams that work in various locations.What updates are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments below. Premiere Pro gets powerful new workspaces with better After Effects and Audition integration.Just as the Lumetri Color workspace changed color grading in Premiere Pro, the new Audio and Graphics workspaces bring powerful tools from Audition and After Effects to the NLE. After Effects gets a powerful new deblur tool and Lumetri color grading, while Audition announces a better multichannel workflow — plus news on Character Animator and updates to Team Projects.Premiere Pro CC 2017Premiere Pro turns 25 years old and has established itself as an essential NLE. The latest version of Premiere Pro CC 2017 (11.1.0) is no longer competing with the likes of FCPX or even DaVinci Resolve. Premiere Pro has set its sights on Avid, aiming to be the industry-standard editing platform.From team collaborations to custom workspaces for color, graphics, audio, and more, Premiere Pro meets the demands of both the multitasking video editor and the collaborative creative workflow. With new Essential Graphics and Essential Audio Workspaces, Premiere Pro is now an all-encompassing video editing powerhouse.Premiere Pro Essential Graphics WorkspaceThe Premiere Pro Essential Graphics workspace introduces a new panel that works seamlessly with After Effects. The tools in the workspace are similar to those in Photoshop and Illustrator, in that they enable you to work with text; align and transform words and shapes; and adjust color, opacity, drop shadow, and more.Essential Graphics Tools:Type Tool — change the font, size, blending mode, and color of the textShape Layers — use rectangle, oval, and freeform drawing toolsClip Layers — add images or video to graphicsHere is a look at the new Type tool in action.Motion Graphics Templates will allow motion designers to create title sequences or graphics in After Effects with parameters a video editor can adjust in Premiere Pro. This eliminates the need for video editors to send titles back for minor revisions, since  you can now adjust the text, shape, and clip layers in Premiere Pro. These Motion Graphics Templates will replace the need for Live Text Templates.Premiere Pro Audio WorkspaceThe new Essential Sound panel in Premiere Pro and Audition gives video editors the power to accurately adjust audio as intended, rather than relying on the expertise of a sound engineer. Editors can assign a mix type to clips, giving each clip a role in the project — dialogue, music, sound effects, and ambience. This gives you the ability to adjust the loudness of a single role, like dialogue, uniformly at once.If you find that Premiere Pro is not meeting your audio adjustment needs, you can send the changes you’ve made to Audition for additional alterations. Premiere Pro’s single sliders in the Essential Sound panel are actually working with several different sliders underlying the program. To dive into the detailed controls, expert sound designers can fine tune changes in the effects tab or in Audition. The audio will transfer between the programs as a live effect. All of these changes rely on Adobe Sensei, the company’s artificial intelligence and machine learning framework.As a further audio note, Premiere Pro now supports Ambisonic audio exports for VR and 360-degree videos.After Effects CC 2017Though Premiere Pro saw most of the big updates, After Effects received some powerful upgrades as well.Motion Graphics TemplatesThe Essential Graphics panel correlates with the same panel in Premiere Pro, but in After Effects, motion designers can control the Motion Graphics Templates in ways video editors in Premiere Pro cannot. After Effects users can organize the adjustable parameters like episode number, lower thirds text, color, and alternate styles. Then you can export AE projects as Motion Graphics Templates for use in Premiere Pro. Over twenty templates are available with the update.Camera Shake DeblurThe most powerful AE update is the new Camera Shake Deblur tool. If you stabilized footage with Warp Stabilizer, you may have seen some blurred footage. The Camera Shake Deblur analyzes footage, detects blur, and then finds sharp frames around the edge of the blurred area. An automated process then processes a smoother image and applies it to the footage.Lumetri Color GradingThe powerful Premiere Pro Lumetri color tools are now available in After Effects, enabling users to work with Lumetri scopes, perform basic corrections, control HSL, and more. Designed for a broadcast workflow, Lumetri can switch between 8-bit, float, and HDR modes.Other Adobe CC UpdatesIn addition to the Premiere Pro and After Effects updates, there is still more for those creatives working in Team Projects, Audition, and Character Animator.Adobe AuditionThe Essential Sound panel (like the Graphics panel) works directly with Audition, and using Dynamic Link, you can view footage in Audition as well. There have also been major updates to the multichannel workflow. Multitrack allows sound engineers to break out multichannel files into separate clips or choose custom channel configurations.last_img read more
