West Point Wins Guinness Beach Soccer Tourney

first_imgPower Plant of West Point yesterday defeated Ambassadors of Mamba Point 6-4 in the finals of the second edition of LFA organized Guinness Beach Soccer Tournament.The second edition of the two-day tournament was held on Florida beach in New Kru Town.Earlier in the third place match, New Kru Town’s Florida Beach Soccer team defeated PHP Beach Soccer team, the defending champions, 4-3.The opening day’s encounter last Saturday saw Power Plant of West Point beating New Kru Town’s Florida 5-1. The losers, according to Coach Togba Sawyer were new to the rules and therefore committed unnecessary mistakes.“Our boys were unsure of the rules or rather they did not understand the rules very much,” Sawyer told the Daily Observer, “so we lost the game.”The second game on Saturday saw Ambassadors whipping PHP 7-2, in a one-sided encounter.“We came with a new team to give them a chance to enjoy the game,” a member of PHP’s team told the Daily Observer.In the first edition, PHP Beach Soccer team played with a team that secured the goals whenever they needed them.“How could a coach change a winning team?” was the question many who witnessed the impressive performance of PHP in the first edition, held on Serie A sports pitch in the Township of West Point, were asking.Mr. Musa Shannon, vice president for administration at the Liberia Football Association responsible for beach soccer, told journalists that the tournament is to bring the game to the community.“We took the game to West Point and the people welcomed it and now we held the second edition in New Kru Town and the people have welcomed it as well,” Shannon said.He said it is the intent of the LFA to ensure that the game is held in communities with beaches at their disposal, noting that place like his home county, Grand Cape Mount, could see beach soccer games, soon.He commended the communities that welcomed the event, as well as those who helped made the tournaments successful.Shannon said the tournament is geared toward a regional competition to be held later in Nigeria, under the Confederation of African Football (CAF).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Parents, Teachers Urged to Develop Character in Children

first_imgThe Deputy Controller at the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT), Kerlie Miller, has urged parents and teachers to pledge their unflinching commitment towards building the divine qualities, including honesty, truthfulness and love, in the children of Liberia.During the graduation exercise of the Joseph G. Cooper Memorial Elementary and Junior High School in Sinkor, Mr. Miller emphasized the need to build the characters of children and students so that they will become better citizens for a better Liberia.He spoke on the theme “The Ingredients that Contribute to Early Child Development,” urging parents and teachers to focus on building their children’s divine qualities for a better Liberia.“Firstly, parents should teach the children love, honesty and truthfulness and the difference between right and wrong. When teaching these values, they must remember that change will come slowly and not to expect the children to learn these values overnight,” Mr. Miller said.He said character-training remains the work of the family, while book learning is the work of school authorities. He called on both parties to collaborate in providing training for the children.“Character training can’t wait until a child goes to school. It must begin when a child is very young so that he or she will grow up in the right way. Parents must also remember that developing good character takes a long time. It is difficult to change a person’s character after he or she has grown up,” he stressed.He said mothers are the first teachers of human beings, which he said makes them largely responsible for character development in the early childhood years.“It ought to be obvious, whenever personal circumstances or those imposed by society at large do not permit mothers to do a thorough job of early education, we should not be surprised to find the society presided over by people of reprehensible characters at all levels,” he said.The high incidence of corruption in Liberia serves as a perfect example; an act which has the propensity to wreck the society’s economy, thereby creating a generally depressing experience for most people, said Miller. As the government struggles with such problems, he said, nobody seems to be concerned about the army of children who swarm the streets of Monrovia looking for a livelihood, adding that “They gamble in the streets, pick people’s pockets, steal from cars and school themselves thoroughly in other kinds of deviant behaviors.” “As we look around our country today, it is sad to see that most of our young people lack discipline and character. While it is true that everyone carries into public life discipline that was instilled into them in the home, we must also begin to look at what is happening in the schools, because the school and home are collaborative partners when it comes to early childhood development,” he stressed.According to him, the high incidence of indiscipline among the youths in Liberia has today led to the conclusion that teachers and parents do not collaborate in developing the character of the children, stating that the lack of moral virtues is on the decline in Liberia.“I say this because a few years back, who would have thought that rape would be on the increase as it is now, especially among the young people? Or that the use of drugs and other illegal substances would be so high in the country? Even after the civil war, we are still exposed to some of the bad things that have been mentioned. We as parents and teachers have not yet mastered the art of training our children or developing their characters,” Mr. Miller noted. He added that, “Parents must be good examples for their children. If they are truthful, the children will learn to be truthful. If they are generous, the children will learn to be generous; and if they are bad, the children will learn to be bad.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

PNG investigating cause of natural gas leak at North Peace Airport

first_img“They had crimped off the line over on the other side of the facility that they actually had been working on earlier, which worked out well for them, and the gas leak was shut down relatively quick,” he says. The question is now whether the line was struck by something from a pile of excavation material debris, as it may not have necessarily been by machinery. The main response concern came from the fact that the leak occurred in a large size line, and in a heavily trafficked area. – Advertisement -“There’s always a risk of fire, and it was in a congested area. You had terminal buildings and lots of hydroelectric over top,” Burrow explains. North Cariboo was put on lockdown during the incident, but the airport terminal remained open to the public.Advertisementlast_img read more

Exclusive – Clarke: Missing out on Balotelli to Liverpool will not concern Arsenal

first_imgAdrian Clarke has told talkSPORT Arsenal will not be disappointed by Mario Balotelli signing for Liverpool and that if Gunners wanted to sign the Italian, they would have done so earlier in the summer.Arsene Wenger’s side were credited with an interest in the the AC Milan striker earlier this summer but never opted to make a bid and now the 24-year-old is on the verge of joining Brendan Rodgers’ side in a surprise £16million move.But despite that, Clarke believes his former side will not be bothered by the Reds signing the former Manchester City forward.“I don’t think it’s a major disappointment at all to be honest. He’s a good player, he’s a talent, but he’s also a little bit of a liability at times. I don’t think he turns it on enough,” he told Kick Off.“I firmly believe if Arsene Wenger wanted him he would have been in for him much earlier in the summer. Good luck to him at Liverpool but I don’t think Arsenal will be too upset to have missed out.”Many Gooners feel the club are in desperate need of striking reinforcements to take the weigh off Olivier Giroud’s shoulders, but Clarke is unconvinced Wenger will bow to public pressure and wants to strengthen his team in other areas.“I don’t think Arsene Wenger is prioritising it. I think he’s after a defensive midfielder and a centre half. What we might see is Alexis [Sanchez] go up top. I think he can do a great job and he’ll be a perfect alternative to Olivier Giroud if he isn’t playing so well or isn’t holding the ball.“Alexis is a kind of a Luis Suarez type striker, just floating around and looking to dart in behind. I hink that could be a real weapon for Arsenal this season.”last_img read more

Northwest pilots OK strike vote

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Mellon added that the carrier would seek an immediate court injunction against any attempted strike. Both sides have been in meetings “around the clock” to settle their differences, he said. Likening the relationship between Northwest management and employees to a bad marriage, McClain testified that “People don’t divorce over one issue. It is usually a series of wrongs over a long time.” McClain later told the AP that a resolution allowing him to conduct a strike ballot was passed unanimously by the union’s 12-member master executive council Thursday evening. He said a vote by pilots could be conducted “at any time” and the ballot process takes 15 days. After 15 days, “a strike could be called within a few days,” said McClain. The judge overseeing the case, Allan Gropper, encouraged both sides to keep negotiating on Friday, the eighth and final day of hearings on Northwest’s request to do away with its employee contracts. The judge has until Feb. 16 to rule. “From my perspective, there has been a lot of progress,” he said, adding that “there is still time for more progress.” Mellon said he hoped to reach consensual agreements with both unions. Flight attendants, meanwhile, said they had received no response as of Friday from the carrier’s management to an offer they made Tuesday to give up 1,553 jobs and accept a 22.5 percent pay cut. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! NEW YORK – Northwest Airlines pilots have given their union leader authority to conduct a strike ballot if there is no progress in negotiations over wage and benefit cuts the airline is seeking, the union head told a New York bankruptcy court Friday. Mark McClain, chairman of the pilots union’s master executive council, testified that employees do not want a strike but acrimony between the airline has grown “over time,” with many workers resenting the company’s charge that labor costs are at the root of the carrier’s problems. Eagan, Minn.-based Northwest Airlines Corp., which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September, is looking for $1.4 billion in wage and benefit cuts from employees. It says it needs the cuts to emerge from bankruptcy and compete effectively with low cost carriers. “We don’t believe a strike is in the best interests of our customers, employees and the hundreds of communities we serve each day,” Northwest spokesman Bill Mellon told The Associated Press. “We believe a strike by our unions would be illegal under bankruptcy law and the Railway Labor Act.” last_img read more

My Donegal… with activist Julie Voss!

first_imgJulie was born in Liverpool and after travelling the world in 1990, she settled in Donegal Town. A mum of two, Julie is married to Jack who is an Aikido teacher with the highest grade in Ireland!Julie works with Lifestart, a child development programme for parents of under 3s in South Donegal, and she runs Parentstop one day a week in Donegal Town. A busy woman, Julie loves to travel and enjoys walking, yoga, and doing all she can to assist those in need by organising charity events.With the help of her daughter, Leela, she established the charity ‘Share the Warmth’ which invites people to knit hats, scarves, or even squares to share with people living on the street or in cold accommodation to keep cosey in the winter months. Julie was recently involved in the hugely succesful Red & Purple Walk which raised much needed funds for the refurbishment of Donegal Hospital.Speaking about the hospital, she said; “Our vision is to create a home from home environment which offers comfort and pleasant surroundings for the patients and their family and friends.”This is Julie’s Donegal…(1) What is your favourite place in Donegal and why?I have to say the Fanad peninsula. The scenery is breath taking(2 )If you could change one thing about Donegal what would it be?The weather! Or more facilities for recreational purposes.(3) Who is the one person in Donegal that you look up to and why?I don’t think I actually look up to anyone, but if you ask me who I admire in Donegal I’d have to say Clive Alcorn for what he’s achieved in building up Tropical World in Letterkenny.(4) Daniel O’Donnell or Packie Bonner?Ooh that’s difficult. As I’m not the least bit interested in country music or soccer so that’s a tough choice. I’ll say Daniel O’Donnell though as he does a lot of charity work.(5) What has been Donegal’s proudest moment in recent years?Standing up for their rights and voting no in referendums for the Fiscal Treaty and both Lisbon Treaties! (6) What has been the biggest compliment you’ve ever received?From a relative who told me they call me Pollyanna (a character in a book) as she said I have a great outlook on life and I always look for the positiveFun-loving Pollyanna as played by Hayley Mills in the Disney adaption of the Eleanor H. Porter novel(7) What is your favourite Donegal-made product?Kelp powder from Carrick. It’s full of nutrients and iodine which is important for us mature ladies.(8) Who is Donegal’s greatest ambassador around the world and why?I’m not really sure who represents us around the world but I would nominate Mary and Ernan McGettigan for being great ambassadors for Donegal all round Ireland.They lead the committees who organise the Food Festival, Summer Festival and a Taste of Christmas a in Donegal Town and all these festivals bring people from all over Ireland. The Food Festival actually brings people from all over Europe and America. I suppose they actually could be our greatest ambassadors around the world.(9) Who is Donegal’s most successful businessperson in your opinion?Definitely Clive Alcorn from Alcorn’s Garden Centre in Letterkenny. He’s responsible for Tropical World and has ploughed money into it every year to create a really awesome animal sanctuary.His love of the animals and his passion and enthusiasm is so refreshing. He really is creating his own dream and he has a great bunch working with him.(10) Who is your favourite Donegal sportsperson of all time?Again, I’m not into sport really but I do like Seamie Coleman as he’s a great footballer and a really nice person. My dad would disown me for that as he was a staunch Liverpool supporter!(11) What is your favourite Donegal restaurant?I’ll have to choose somewhere in Donegal Town as I live there. You can’t get a better Indian than Chandpur in Donegal Town.(12) Donegal’s golden eagles or basking sharks?Another hard choice, but probably basking sharks. They’re a bit more lovable than sharp clawed, razor beaked eagles!(13) What is your favourite Donegal saying or expression?“Sure, it’s grand”!(14) What is the biggest challenge facing the people of Donegal today?The limited opportunities here. I think it’s really sad that people, particularly young people, have to leave their homes to be able to fulfil their dreams.(15) What is your favourite Donegal food?I’m vegetarian so we don’t really get much choice in restaurants. Donegal don’t really have a “special” or “traditional” food when it comes to vegetarianism!(16) Is there anything that really annoys you about Donegal or its people?Probably the time keeping! Also, the lack of awareness that some drivers have for other people on the road.(17) Do you have a favourite local band?Yeah, can I have 2? Humble earthworms and Serial Twin!(18) If you had a million euro to improve something in Donegal what would it be?I would create a Barefoot Park in Ards Forest Park. I recently experienced one in the Black Forest, Germany. It was 2.5 kms of all different underfoot material eg mud, sand, nails heads, broken sea glass, bark, pine cones etc and it was an awesome experience and really made you aware of what you were walking on. It’s something that can be enjoyed by all ages and in all weathers.(19) What is your favourite part about being organising a charity event?I have to say the amazing support from the local people. We were blown away by the generosity and positive feedback we got from everyone and by the amount of people who turned up for the walk in Purple and Red. Such a great community.(20) Is there anything about Donegal that you are very proud of?Again, the awesome community spirit. When Donegal people like what you’re doing, they give 100 per cent support.Julie with her friends during the Purple & Red fundraising weekend earlier this monthHow to donate to Julie’s initiative to improve Donegal Hospital:If anyone would still like to donate, you can make cheques to “Purple and Red Ladies”.Or pay straight into bank with the following details:IBAN IE57AIBK93730428899074BIC AIBKIE2DJulie asks that you put your name in the reference so they can thank those who have donated.My Donegal… with activist Julie Voss! was last modified: September 28th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:charitydonegal hospitalDonegal Townjulie vossMY DONEGALred and purple walkshare the warmthlast_img read more

DONEGAL GIVEN HUGE BOOST AS ANTHONY THOMPSON COMMITS FOR SEASON AHEAD

first_imgAnthony Thompson has committed to Donegal for the 2015 season.Donegal have been handed a massive boost following the news that wing half-back Anthony Thompson will commit for the 2015 campaign.There had been huge doubts regarding Thompson’s future after he was forced to emigrate in search of employment.Thompson is now living and working in London and it looked highly unlikely he would return to the Donegal set-up under Rory Gallagher. However, it has been announced that the Naomh Conaill will fly over and back for games and should be available for Donegal’s National League encounter with Derry in a fortnight.Thompson has been a mainstay of the side for the previous four seasons under previous manager Jim McGuinness and been an outstanding and pivotal figure for Donegal.He’s been very unlucky not to be awarded with an All-Star award.With Rory Kavanagh announcing his retirement yesterday, the news Thompson is staying on is even more significant now following the loss of the St Eunan’s man.

MANY, MANY, MANY, MANY HAPPY RETURNS BIDDY!

first_imgIt’s doubtful that there will be anyone older at Biddy McGee’s birthday party in Leo’s Tavern on Saturday night than the birthday girl herself.Well the well-known and hugely-popular Annagry woman is 106 afterall!The great, great grandmother is hale and hearty despite her great age. Friends and family will travel from as far away as America for the big night.Biddy is still up to date with all current affairs and is in a bit of a quandary as to who to vote for in the Presidential election – her NINTH time to vote for an Irish President.And Biddy’s son Michael said his mum was very disappointed that his mum did not get to meet the Queen in Dublin.Despite all the celebrations in Annagry, there is one major concern amongst locals in the West Donegal village. Just who has 106 candles handy in a drawer?Congratulations Biddy and many happy returns.DONEGALDAILY.COM – DONEGAL’S BIGGEST AND BEST NEWS WEBSITE……GIVING YOU THE NEWS NOW!ADVERTISE FOR JUST €3..click www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comEnds MANY, MANY, MANY, MANY HAPPY RETURNS BIDDY! was last modified: October 21st, 2011 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:Biddy McGeelast_img read more
