We’ll continue working hard.”And that’s exactly what Perez wants from the Pirates: to continue striving for greatness.“We’re already there, but we still have to continue doubling the effort in our practice and in our games,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.

Messengers of Peace, Volunteers in Action: Without Exemption

first_imgWho defines the standards for peace? It’s definitely not those who were perpetrators of conflicts, it is in, in reality the innocent bystanders and those severely affected by the conflicts. A violent person is a threat to his/her community and the attitude of if it’s not your fault it should not be your problem should not only be dropped by young people but should be renounced by all.Messengers of Peace (MOP)-Liberia condemns any form of violent demonstration. We see violent actions as erosions to gains in youth’s employment and empowerment programs as well as an attack on the Liberian investment and human security. There are so many benefits in peaceful negotiations. We believe in open dialogues and consultations in mediation and conflict resolutions. Without exemption, everyone should strive for a peaceful society.This week, we present a dynamic young teenager — Ms. Clinylon Nah. Talking of starting early, Clinylon is surely an inspiration to many young people of her cohort and she has a special message for all young people. The engagement as well as the aspirations of young people in volunteerism for peace is a powerful demonstration of solidarity in action to achieve our shared value in building a better Liberia.-Gwendolyn Myers, Executive Director, MOP-Liberia-Read on:My name is Clinylon Nah; I am 17-year-old student of the St Edward catholic school. I live in Logan Town, Monrovia.I was motivated to be a volunteer peace messenger because of the way I see my fellow young friend in Liberia being used by adults to carry out violent acts. These acts lead to the destruction of public and private properties. I see Messengers of Peace-Liberia, as an organization that has invested significant resources to enhance the leadership qualities of young people in peace advocacy. MOP-Liberia educates young and old people alike about peace-related activities.As a young peace messenger, I’ve been involved in many peace advocacy programs. Amongst which are mediation in conflict between my school mates, support peace education efforts and the ‘dollar-for-peace concert’ on the growth of 20 Peace Clubs to 50 in Liberia.In my school I am not only a peace messenger but also a health club member, who conducts health-related outreach programs in the school.The message I have for my fellow youths out there is don’t allow yourselves to be used like tools to carry out violence. Perpetrators of violence do not in any way help the growth and development of young people. We need our elders to provide quality education and sound pieces of advice to young people and not to use them to do destroy basic healthcare facilities and food security. All these are essential for harmony among us because we (young people) are the future for tomorrow.MOP-Liberia is helping me by strengthening my participation in peacebuilding. I want every young person to get involved. There should be no exemption.  Education for peace will help us acquire the value and knowledge to develop the knowledge, attitudes, behavior and skills that will enable us to live in harmony with ourselves and the world at-large.I want to encourage young people of Liberia to stay away from extreme behavior that will cause us hindrance in the future. Let us put on non-violent characters to save our country and the world. We have been used, long enough, as instruments of violence by some greedy and selfish people who have no interest in developing us for the future. We can, and must create the path to peace. Let us join hands with well-meaning organizations in the advocacy of non-violence approach. Let us use the spirit of volunteerism to obtain our goal to see Liberia a better and peaceful place to live.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Proposal’s final draft up for approval

first_imgSANTA CLARITA – The Castaic Lake Water Agency and the Newhall County Water District boards are holding a final public hearing tonight on the draft document projecting regional water supply and demand until 2030. The two water agencies will review – and consider adoption of – the final draft of the 2005 Urban Water Management Plan, which offers planners a 25-year water supply estimate and how much development it could sustain. Mary Lou Cotton, the CLWA’s water resources manager, said the revised plan now includes amended data and changes suggested by officials at the September meeting. “We incorporated the addendum materials and just updated and verified some of the tech language and numbers on the table,” she said Tuesday. “We don’t expect any substantive changes.” Required by state law to be updated every five years, the document also has contingency plans for drought and disasters, including levee breaches on the California Aqueduct, which now supplies more than half of the area’s water. By 2030, the Santa Clarita Valley’s population could increase some 70 percent to more than 428,000, and demand could jump from the current 89,300 acre-feet per year to 138,300 acre-feet per year. An acre-foot is the amount of water required to cover one acre one foot deep, or 325,851 gallons. Meantime, local water supply from all current sources – including allocations from the State Water Project, groundwater and recycled sources – is projected at 125,680 acre-feet for 2030. Proposed transfer deals, water-banking programs and decontamination of polluted wells could add about 86,700 acre-feet. But some challenge the accuracy of the estimates. Groups including the Planning and Conservation League argued officials overstated supply in the water plan. The Urban Water Management Plan has attract controversy. Environmental groups sued CLWA over the 2000 plan, claiming it relied on contaminated water and other uncertain sources. A Kern County Superior Court judge found no wrongdoing, but the state Court of Appeal invalidated the plan, saying it failed to address local groundwater contamination by perchlorate – a rocket fuel chemical. Officials have said cleanup could begin next year, and the 2005 plan has been revised to address it. A copy of the final draft is available online at www.clwa.org/about/publications.cfm. Eugene Tong, (661) 257-5253 eugene.tong@dailynews.com IF YOU GO: The joint meeting of the Castaic Lake Water Agency and Newhall County Water District boards will be held at 7 tonight at the CLWA headquarters, 27234 Bouquet Canyon Road, Saugus. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Buncrana benefits from €1.1M Community Paramedic Project

first_imgThe Buncrana community is one of three pilot regions included in the roll out of a new Community Paramedic Project. The ‘Co-operation and Working Together’ cross-border initiative was launched to enable paramedics to provide safe and effective care to patients in their homes and communities.The project allows paramedics to broaden the routine healthcare services they provide and help to improve rural urgent medical services. Since commencement, it has already reduced unnecessary ambulance transports to emergency departments. In addition, the EU funding of €1.1 million is being used to invest in new rapid response vehicles for the pilot areas in the three ambulance regions.Pictured in front of the Rapid Response Vehicle are (from left to right): Brian McNeill, Director of Operations, NI Ambulance Service; Bernie McCrory, Chief Officer, CAWT cross border health; Wendy Quinn, Head of Service, Scottish Ambulance Service; Tony O’Brien, Director General, HSE; Sean Murphy, General Manager, Letterkenny University Hospital and Martin Dunne, Director, National Ambulance Service (Rep of Ireland).These vehicles are fitted out specifically to provide care to patients in their homes or their community. This means that, within the pilot areas, more patients can be treated at home instead of having to be transported by ambulance to hospital emergency departments.This new collaboration between the three national ambulance services of Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland has been warmly welcomed and has resulted in the establishment of Community Paramedic services in Ireland and Northern Ireland.Pictured (from left to right) are: Bridget Clarke and Louise Potts, Cross Border CAWT Acute Project; Brian McNeill, Director of Operations, NI Ambulance Service; Bernie McCrory, Chief Officer, CAWT cross border health; Martin Dunne, Director, National Ambulance Service (Rep of Ireland); Wendy Quinn, Head of Service, Scottish Ambulance Service; Sean Murphy, General Manager, Letterkenny University Hospital and Michael Rooney, HSE.Community Paramedics associated with this project are undergoing specialised training accredited by Glasgow Caledonian University. EU INTERREG VA funding of €1.1 million was secured for the project for an 18 month period. The four pilot localities include Buncrana, Co. Donegal and Clones, Co. Monaghan in the border region of Ireland, Castlederg, Co Tyrone in Northern Ireland and the Argyle & Bute region in SW Scotland.Buncrana benefits from €1.1M Community Paramedic Project was last modified: April 13th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
