“Act Like Soldiers”

By on January 14, 2020

first_imgDeputy Defense Minister for Administration, Joseph F. Johnson, yesterday challenged the third batch of the platoon of soldiers from the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) assigned to serve in Mali to remain focused, vigilant and act like trained soldiers as they departed for the peacekeeping assignment.Mr. Johnson brief’s admonition to the soldiers was delivered at yesterday’s ceremonies marking the deployment of the third contingent of AFL soldiers to Mali and the return of the second contingent dubbed, “LIBBATT 2”.The Liberian soldiers are serving with the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA).The second platoon of soldiers left the country for a peacekeeping mission in Mali on June 26 last year, and returned yesterday to a tremendous welcome ceremony coordinated by the hierarchy of the AFL, headed by the Chief of Staff (COS) B/G Daniel Dee Ziankahn, Jr. The well-attended ceremony was conducted in collaboration with the Ministry of National Day (MOD) at the Roberts International Airport (RIA), Lower Margibi County. Colonel Prince C. Johnson, III, who provided a brief history of the Mali mission said the return of the Liberian peacekeepers does not end the AFL mission, but brings to an end a year of peacekeeping duties for the second platoon commanded by Captain Ernest Appleton. Soldiers who returned yesterday are the second postwar peacekeepers who have served in international peacekeeping duties with distinction, Col. Johnson stated. The soldiers are being hailed for a “job well done.” For that, the office of the Chief of Staff, in collaboration with the MOD, wants Liberians to know that they have flown the Liberian Flag very high on the international scene.“Since its deployment to Mali,” Col. Johnson said, “the platoon has over the past 12 months conducted several missions in and out of its areas of operations both in Diabaly, Northwest and Timbuktu, Northern Mali, respectively. These missions, he recounted, included escort, vehicle and foot patrols, reconnaissance and other special assignments. In line with the administrative mandate towards personnel serving in peacekeeping duties, the UN through the MINUSMA scheduled a Medal Day Parade in honor of the Liberian Platoon on June 19. The Liberian contingent consists of an infantry platoon assigned to MINUSMA Headquarters in Bamako and Timbuktu where they received UN Medals. B/G Ziankahn, B/G Sidiki Daniel Traore, Sector West Commander, MINUSMA, Lofa County Senator Stephen J. H. Zargo, chairman on Defense Intelligence and Security, Rep. Lester Paye, Co-chair at the Lower House and David K. Dahn, Assistant Defense Minister for Public Affairs, decorated the AFL personnel. This is the second batch of AFL personnel to receive UN Medals since the restructuring of the AFL in 2006. According to Col. Johnson, on June 23, 2013, the government dispatched a platoon of AFL troops to form part of the African-led International Support Mission to Mali (AFISMA)- an Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS)-organized military mission to support the Government of Mali against Islamist rebels in the North of the country. Meanwhile, a new infantry platoon, headed by Capt. Stephen T. Powo, departed the country yesterday aboard a special UN chartered flight for Mali. The outgoing platoon has already completed three months of pre-deployment training at the Armed Forces Training Command in Careysburg. The pre-deployment training covered all tasks expected to be conducted during the tour of duty in Mali. It covered medical screening and physical training, which also covered Geo-Politics of Mali, International Humanitarian Law, Introduction to Patrol, and Individual Soldier Task. Map Reading/Land Navigation, First Aid, Road block, Cordon and Search, Ambush, VIP Escort, Control of IDPs, Urban Operations, Desert Warfare, Battle Drills, Offensive Operations, and Combat/Operational Stress Control were also part of the training.In a related development, the AFL will today begin conducting a Field Training Exercise (FTE), named “Exercise Watch over IV” in the general areas of Firestone and RIA from June 23-27. The exercise is an Internal Security Operations Joint Training designed for the AFL and other sister security agencies such as Liberia National Police (LNP), Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN), National Fire Service (NFS) and the Drugs Enforcement Agency (DEA).

By on January 12, 2020

first_imgVern Isberg organized the tournament, which is held in memoriam for his brother Arnie. He says the number of teams taking part increased again this year“We had 16 teams that entered the tournament. Every year is always getting better,” he states. “We started out with eight teams the very first year, second year was 12 and now we’re at 16 and we’re going to cap it at 16 every year. We had a three team waiting list this year which is fantastic. It’s obviously a tournament people want to come to.”With the tournament growing in size teams are coming from outside of Fort St. John to participate.- Advertisement -“I think it offers the fun of the one pitch and a bit of the competition as well with a lot of the great slow pitch teams in town and around the area. We had one from Fort Nelson, one from Chetwynd and the teams from around town here.” Isberg says.When it comes to his brother Vern says that Arnie was a great person to all of his friends and took the time to contribute in the community.“Arnie was always community minded. He was a great guy. If anyone ever knew Arnie he was the kind of guy that would light up a room. He was one of those people everyone gravitated to,” he explains. “The thing with him in the community is that he was involved with the rotary. He was involved with the Eastern Star, the church. He was a big helper of the hospital foundation so that’s why we decided all of the donations and the money raised are going to go to the hospital foundation and the cancer treatment fund.” Advertisement Teams were also awarded with cheques based on how they finished in their given division. The teams donated back their winnings to the cause.The winning teams in the A, B, and C divisions were McGlovin, One Hit Wonders, and Bad Habits.last_img read more

GOVERNMENT WON’T REVIEW RENTS IN KILLYBEGS – TD

By on December 30, 2019

first_imgThomas Pringle TD has called for genuine engagement with tenants and the need for a will on behalf of the Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine in negotiating rent reductions for fishery harbour centre tenants.“Currently, the department has in the region of 140 property agreements in place in the six Fishery Harbour Centres at Killybegs, Ros an Mhíl, Dingle, Castletownbere, Dunmore East and Howth,” he said.“In the region of 60 lease agreements contain rent review clauses, however Minister Coveney decided that following the completion of rent reviews due for the period up to mid-2008 that no rent reviews would be carried out for years subsequent to 2008 and that an effective freeze in rent would be applied across the board. “Last week I informed the Minister how this decision he made two years ago is affecting tenants who are living with the consequences of this and paying very high rents and want their rents to be reviewed and are happy to engage with the Department, but to no avail.“Minister Coveney justified his decision by stating that in the most recent round of rent reviews, numerous rents were increased. While this may be the case, the rent freeze is not enough and in some cases detrimental whereby numerous tenants are finding themselves at a disadvantage because of this. If there was a will within the department to engage with tenants and work towards negotiating fairer rents I believe that would be a constructive solution.“But since the Minister has decided to continue this approach in relation to rent reviews due in 2013 and for a rent freeze to be applied in all such cases, it looks like this situation will remain for some time.“This is an unfortunate situation for those who would otherwise be paying lower rents and I will continue to call on the Minister to constructively engage with these tenants,” stated Pringle.  GOVERNMENT WON’T REVIEW RENTS IN KILLYBEGS – TD was last modified: February 19th, 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:GOVERNMENT WON’T REVIEW RENTS IN KILLYBEGS – TDlast_img read more

AUTHOR TO BRING MINDFULNESS TECHNIQUES TO DONEGAL

By on December 25, 2019

first_imgA well-known author and relaxation specialist is to bring his unique techniques to Donegal.Padraig O’Morain“Learning mindfulness is an easy and pleasant experience,” says author and mindfulness teacher Padraig O’Morain who is to present a mindfulness day in Letterkenny on Saturday 25th May.Padraig is the author of “Light Mind – Mindfulness for Daily Living,” one of the few Irish books on the topic. “The practice of mindfulness has come into its own as a quickly understandable way to help people to reduce their stress and get more out of life, especially in these difficult times,” says Padraig.“Essentially, mindfulness involves returning your attention again and again to your breath, your body or whatever you are physically experiencing. Mindfulness is used in a wide range of human activity: healthcare, sports, meditation, education and in daily life.“People who bring mindfulness into their daily lives find they are less likely to be swept away by anxiety, anger or unhelpful memories. They learn to be calmly aware in the middle of a busy day.“I have taught mindfulness practices to accountants, doctors, unemployed people, counsellors, community workers, managers, trade unionists and many, many others.” The mindfulness day will be held in the Mount Errigal Hotel from 10am to 3.30pm on the 25th. The cost of attending is €50. No previous experience of mindfulness is necessary and people who already practice mindfulness will also enjoy the day. Participants will be given a CD of mindfulness practices.Advance booking is essential and can be made through www.mindfulnessexperience.com“My aim is that people should be practicing mindfulness in their daily lives from the moment they leave the hotel,” Padraig O’Morain says. “The atmosphere of the day will be light and pleasant.”Padraig O’Morain also writes a weekly column, That’s Men, in The Irish Times health supplement.AUTHOR TO BRING MINDFULNESS TECHNIQUES TO DONEGAL was last modified: May 6th, 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:mindfulnessPadraig O’Morainlast_img read more

Pep and Jose renew rivalry in Premier League match day 12

By on December 22, 2019

first_imgCardiff City vs Brighton and Hove AlbionCardiff City Stadium, CardiffSaturday, 10-11-2018 @03: 30 pm (SuperSport 3)Referee: Martin AtkinsonThis is the first top-flight meeting between Cardiff City and Brighton. It becomes the 100th different fixture to be played in England’s top four divisions. Brighton have lost just one of their last 11 league matches against Cardiff (W3, D7), a 1-4 away defeat in 2016.Cardiff midfielder Harry Arter will serve a one-match ban on Saturday for accumulating five bookings this season. Jazz Richards misses out due to a hamstring injury and Kenneth Zohore remains sidelined with a calf problem, but Joe Ralls is back in contention.Brighton & Hove Albion winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh is not expected to play because of a hamstring strain. David Button is out with a knee injury, while Pascal Gross and Davy Propper are long-term absentees.Brighton have managed just one win in their last 19 Premier League away games (D5, L13).Huddersfield Town vs West Ham UnitedThe John Smith Stadium, West YorkshireSaturday, 10-11-2018 @06:00pm Referee: Chris KavanaghHuddersfield Town full-back Erik Durm is set to return after missing their last game through injury. Danny Williams, who has not played since March due to a broken ankle, is back in training in an otherwise fully-fit squad.West Ham captain Mark Nobles completes a three-game ban. Fellow midfielder Pedro Obiang should be available after being substituted during last weekend’s win over Burnley with a minor knee problem. Andy Carroll and Jack Wilshere could return from ankle injuries after the international break.Huddersfield were the only side West Ham beat home and away in the Premier League last season. West Ham’s 4-1 win at Huddersfield last season was their first victory there since an FA Cup game in 1969. The Terriers have not beaten the Hammers in the top flight since a 1-0 victory in 1971.Leicester City vs BurnelyKing Power Stadium, LeicestershireSaturday, 10-11-2018 @06: 00 pm Referee: Mike DeanOn a day to remember in every aspect, the only thing that might get forgotten is the game. The emotion before its starts will be all-encompassing. It will be many Leicester fans’ first time back at the stadium, and for all the first opportunity to share their grief together inside. It’s also a day for giving thanks. To Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha for what he did for Leicester City and the city of Leicester, and for the sacrifices of those in the service of their country. The match? Professionalism and adrenalin will be needed in abundance by the home players after such a draining time – but the occasion will make it hard for Burnley’s too.Leicester City are unbeaten at home against Burnley in seven league matches since a 1-0 Championship defeat in November 2007 (W4, D3). Burnley could record consecutive league wins in this fixture for the first time since August 2006. Its 50 years since they did so in the top flight.Leicester pair Harry Maguire and James Maddison have been ruled out of Saturday’s game with knee injuries. The fixture is Leicester’s first at home since Chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was among five people to lose their lives in a helicopter crash near the stadium.Burnley could be without defender James Tarkowski, who has an ongoing hernia problem that may require surgery. Jack Cork and Phil Bardsley are fit to return after missing out last weekend.Leicester earned their first league victory and clean sheet in four matches at the expense of Cardiff last weekend.Newcastle United vs AFC BournemouthSt. James Park, Newcastle upon TyneSaturday, 10-11-2018 @06: 00 pmReferee: Craig PawsonNewcastle are likely to be without Jamal Lascelles, Jonjo Shelvey and Yoshinori Muto, who were all substituted with injuries against Watford last weekend. Only Lascelles has trained this week but he is not expected to be risked.Bournemouth forward Joshua King has returned to training after a three-match absence with an ankle injury and could be available. Manager Eddie Howe has reported no fresh injury concerns.Newcastle have lost both of their Premier League matches against Bournemouth at St. James’ Park. Their only home league win against the Cherries came in the second tier in February 1990. Five of the last seven Premier League goals in this fixture have been scored in the 80th minute or later. Newcastle are seeking consecutive league wins for the first time since April. Victory over Watford last weekend was only their second in 16 league matches (D3, L11). They have lost six of their last eight league fixtures at St James’ Park.Southampton vs WatfordSt. Mary’s Stadium, SouthamptonSaturday, 10-11-2015 @06: 00 pmReferee: Simon HooperSouthampton are hopeful that midfielder Mario Lemina can overcome a thigh strain in time to play. Defender Wesley Hoedt has missed training with a foot infection and is a doubt for the match.Watford captain Troy Deeney could return after missing three games with a hamstring problem. Etienne Capoue is suspended after accumulating five yellow cards, while Tom Cleverley, Sebastian Prodl and Daryl Janmaat are still sidelined.Watford won the corresponding fixture last season, with two long-range strikes clinching a 2-0 victory. The teams’ most recent meeting came in the FA Cup last January in Javi Gracia’s first game in charge of Watford. Saints won 1-0. Southampton are without a win in seven league games (D3, L4). They are yet to win at St Mary’s this season (D3, L2). They’ve never failed to win any of their first six home games. Their only goal in six league games came from the penalty spot. Only bottom side Huddersfield have scored fewer than Southampton’s seven league goals this season.Crystal Palace vs Tottenham HotspursSelhurst Park, LondonSaturday, 10-11-2018 @ 00 pm0pm (SuperSport 3)Referee: Jonathan MossCrystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has reported no fresh injury concerns. The Eagles remain without injured quartet Christian Benteke, Scott Dann, Joel Ward and Connor Wickham.Tottenham’s Mousa Dembele is unlikely to play again in 2018 after suffering ankle ligament damage at Wolves. Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama have recovered from injuries, while Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen played against PSV in midweek after returning to full fitness.Spurs are on a six-match winning streak against Crystal Palace in the Premier League, conceding just one goal during those fixtures. Tottenham could equal their Premier League club record of seven straight wins in the same fixture, having done so against Manchester City between 2004-07 and Swansea between 2012-15. Palace have never lost seven consecutive top-flight matches versus the same opponent. There has only been one first-half goal in the past 14 league meetings – 25 of the last 26 goals in this fixture have come in the second half.Liverpool vs FulhamAnfield Stadium, LiverpoolSunday, 11-11-2018 @03:00 pmReferee: Paul TierneyLiverpool will be hoping to make it 12 games unbeaten at the start of the 2018/19 Premier League when they host a Fulham side that have only won once away from home in their first six games on the road. The Reds will also be looking to bounce back from their disappointing 2-0 loss to Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson and fellow midfielder Naby Keita are both available as Liverpool welcome Fulham to Anfield at midday on Sunday. The pair have been sidelined for a number of weeks due to hamstring injuries but will be included in the squad alongside defender Joe Gomez, who has been struggling with an Achilles issue recently. Xherdan Shaqiri will also come into contention, having been left at home for the Champions League trip to Red Star Belgrade in an attempt to reduce local hostilities. The 27-year-old, of Kosovar-Albanian descent, angered Serbian fans with his ‘Albanian Eagle’ celebration at the World Cup.Fulham are expected to be without Kevin McDonald and Joe Bryan for Sunday’s fixture at Liverpool. Both are struggling with hamstring injuries and are likely to miss out. Cottagers boss Slavisa Jokanovic is expected to make further changes to his team following their disappointing defeat at Huddersfield on Monday.Liverpool have won their last four Premier League matches against Fulham, though this is their first league meeting since February 2014. In all competitions, Fulham have managed just one win in their 33 visits to Liverpool (D9 L23), scoring just four times in their last 17 games at Anfield. Fulham have won just one of their 54 away league games on Merseyside against Liverpool and Everton (D11 L42), a 1-0 win against Liverpool in May 2012. Liverpool have won all eight home Premier League games under Jurgen Klopp against newly-promoted teams, scoring 25 goals and conceding just three. Fulham have taken one point from their last 18 Premier League games against the ‘big six’ sides (W0 D1 L17), losing all three games this season by an aggregate score of 2-11. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 26 Premier League home games, their longest such run since August 2009 (31 games).Chelsea vs EvertonStamford Bridge, LondonSunday, 11-11-2018 @05:15 pm Referee: Kevin FriendChelsea have had a tremendous start to life under Maurizio Sarri, unbeaten in their first 11 League games, already through to the knock out stages of the Europa League and playing beautiful football. Their next test is at home to an Everton side that has been blowing hot and cold since the start of the current campaign.Alvaro Morata, Marcos Alonso, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and N’Golo Kante are expected to start for Chelsea in Sunday’s Premier League clash with Everton. Morata, Alonso, Luiz and Rudiger were rested from the trip to Belarus, staying in London, while Kante was an unused substitute after receiving a late call-up due to Cesc Fabregas’ illness. Fabregas is a doubt for the Toffees game, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek may not feature after a back complaint which boss Sarri described as minor.Everton forward Richarlison is a doubt for their trip to Stamford Bridge. The Brazil international, who rolled his ankle early in last weekend’s 3-1 win over Brighton but played the full duration and scored twice, will be assessed ahead of the match. With on-loan defender Kurt Zouma ineligible against his parent club, there could be a first Toffees start for fellow summer signing Yerry Mina. Phil Jagielka and James McCarthy are available, while Jonjoe Kenny is another doubt.Chelsea are unbeaten in 23 home Premier League games against Everton (W13 D10) since losing 0-1 in November 1994. In all competitions, Everton have won none of their last 28 visits to Stamford Bridge against Chelsea (D11 L17). Only one team has ever had a longer winless away run against an opponent in Premier League history than Everton’s current 23 against Chelsea – Spurs went 25 away games without a win at Stamford Bridge between 1993 and 2016. Everton have won one of their last 16 away Premier League games in London (D6 L9), losing their last four in a row, all during 2018. Chelsea are looking to remain unbeaten in their opening 12 games to a top-flight season for only the second time, also doing so in 2014-15 (unbeaten in first 14). Everton have lost 11 of their last 13 away Premier League games played on Sunday (D2) since winning 2-1 at QPR in March 2015.Arsenal vs Wolverhampton WanderersEmirates Stadium, LondonSunday, 11-11-2018 @07:30 pmReferee: Scot AtwellUnbeaten in their last 15 games across all competitions, Arsenal will be out to maintain their surge up the table when they host Wolves on Sunday afternoon. After an impressive start to the league campaign, the visitors find themselves on a three game losing streak and Nuno Espirito Santo will be hoping to get their season back on track but the task doesn’t get any bigger than a trip to the Emirates.Arsenal will be without Danny Welbeck and Stephan Lichtsteiner for Sunday’s Premier League visit of Wolves after both were forced off injured in Thursday’s draw with Sporting Lisbon. Welbeck (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for some time after being taken to hospital following an awkward fall, while Lichtsteiner limped out of the Europa League clash with a muscular issue. Mohamed Elneny (thigh) and Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin) are still missing, while Matteo Guendouzi is back in domestic contention after serving a one-match ban.Wolves’ only injury concern is Portuguese-Diogo Jota who is currently nursing an injury. Aside from Jota, Santo has a full strength squad to choose from.Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 19 matches against Wolves in all competitions (W16 D3) since a 3-2 defeat in September 1979 under Terry Neill. Wolves have avoided defeat in just one of their eight Premier League games against Arsenal (P8 W0 D1 L7), though that was in their last visit to the Emirates in December 2011, a 1-1 draw under Mick McCarthy. Arsenal have taken 59 points from their last 63 available at home in Premier League games against newly promoted sides (P21 W19 D2 L0) since losing 1-0 to Newcastle United in November 2010. Arsenal haven’t been behind for a single minute in eight Premier League matches against Wolves – only one team has ever played more games against an opponent without falling behind (Chelsea v Portsmouth, 14 games). Wolves have played more Premier League games against Arsenal without winning (8) than against any other opponent. All three of Wolves’ Premier League goals against Arsenal have been scored via corners.Manchester City vs Manchester UnitedEtihad Stadium, ManchesterSunday, 11-11-2018 @07:30 pm (SuperSport 3)Referee: Anthony TaylorIts derby day in Manchester as title favourites City host neigbours United at the Etihad Stadium. It has been business as usual for Pep Guardiola’s side who are still unbeaten in the league and are on the back of a two six goal victories in the last seven days. For United, they must be in good mood going into the clash after winning all their last three games in all competitions by a 2-1 scoreline. Jose Mourinho’s men however have had to dig deep to get results recently including two late goals in the victory over Juventus on Wednesday in the Champions League.City will be without Kevin De Bruyne after he suffered another knee problem, with Nicolas Otamendi and Ilkay Gundogan, a scorer in this fixture last term, racing to be fit in time to feature. Claudio Bravo and Eliaquim Mangala are long-term absentees.Romelu Lukaku could return to action for Manchester United in Sunday’s derby clash. The 25-year-old missed the trips to Bournemouth and Juventus with a hamstring complaint but will be assessed as the striker steps up training. Diogo Dalot has been out with an injury sustained during the international break, while Captain Antonio Valencia is back in contention having travelled to Turin.Manchester City have won just two of their last eight matches against Manchester United in all competitions (D2 L4) since winning four in a row between 2013 and 2014. Manchester United, who won 3-2 at the Etihad last season despite being 0-2 down, are looking to win back to back Premier League games at the stadium for just the second time, also doing so with wins in November 2008 and April 2010. Two of Man Utd’s three Premier League wins against Man City when they’ve trailed in the match have been away from home and from 0-2 behind – in November 1993 and April 2018. Premier League meetings between Manchester City and Manchester United have been won by the away side on 17 occasions – only Aston Villa vs Liverpool (19) and Everton vs Man Utd (18) have been won by the visiting team more. Manchester United have conceded 18 goals in their 11 Premier League games this season. It took them 25 games until January 31 to concede as many in the competition last season. Manchester City haven’t lost any of their last 53 Premier League games against sides starting the day outside the top four (W44 D9 L0), since a 0-4 loss at Everton in January 2017. Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling is still yet to score against Manchester United in the Premier League, attempting 19 shots in 12 games without success; among players with at least 50 Premier League goals, only Robbie Keane (22) has played more times against the Red Devils without scoring than Sterling. Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero scored seven goals in his first seven Premier League games against Man Utd, but has failed to score in his last three against them since. Anthony Martial has scored in each of his last four Premier League games for Man Utd – he could become the seventh different player to score in five or more in a row for the club in the competition (Ruud van Nistelrooy x4, Wayne Rooney x2, Eric Cantona, Dwight Yorke, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robin van Persie). This will be the 22nd meeting between Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho in all competitions – the Spaniard has won nine and lost five (D7) of the previous 21. He’s only lost more matches against Jurgen Klopp (7) than Mourinho (5) during his managerial career. Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has never lost consecutive home league games against a single opponent in his whole managerial career.
