Despite Ebola, Agric Students Still Growing Food at Nimba Community College

first_imgProducing food to make Liberia self-sufficient remains a strong concern for young farmers studying agriculture at the Nimba County Community College (NCCC) in northeast Liberia. Despite the Ebola crisis, which has led to the abrupt closure of schools across Liberia, at least 15 students from NCCC’s agriculture department are committed to following through with land preparation, planting and caring for NCCC’s lowland rice and cassava demonstration sites.“It is very unfortunate to consider that our country has yet to become self-sufficient in food production and we still depend on other countries to feed us. Although the Ebola crisis has stopped us from being in school, a few of us decided to volunteer our time to continue our school’s agriculture projects,” explains J. Tiatoue Zogbay, the campus agriculture coordinator at NCCC.Within the next few months, the students could harvest up to 5.5 metric tons of rice from the lowland project, giving the students hands on experience with improved methods of preparing, planting and harvesting rice and other crops.The student agriculture project is supported by the United States Agency for International Development Food and Enterprise Development Program for Liberia (USAID FED) and forms part of the NCCC’s agriculture curriculum. The demonstration plots give students the opportunity to gain practical agriculture skills that will prepare them to become better farmers and more competitive candidates for employment opportunities in Liberia’s agricultural sector.The lack of a skilled and knowledgeable workforce in Liberia’s agriculture sector presents a major challenge to the future of farming. The majority of today’s farmers are over 50 and the country’s youth views farming as difficult and a poorly paid job.In 2011, USAID FED began developing Centers of Excellence for Agriculture at several vocational institutions in Liberia. USAID FED and those institutions’ administration and faculty members work together to strengthen the educational centers, from the agriculture department to the library.  Then, in 2013, USAID FED partnered with the Ministry of Education to develop the country’s first two-year vocational agriculture degree known as the National Diploma in Agriculture. The official roll out of this program at the Nimba, Lofa, and Grand Bassa Community colleges, as well as the Booker Washington Institute, has been delayed due to school closure, resulting from the ongoing Ebola crisis.At the NCCC Center of Excellence in Agriculture, USAID FED provided tools, fertilizers, improved seeds and cassava cuttings for the student demonstration sites. A goat shelter is also underway for construction on the institution’s campus. In addition, the program has provided materials and technology to improve the institution’s library so students have a place to study and conduct on-line research.J. Tiatoue Zogbay used to teach, but left teaching to get skills in the field of agriculture in order to combine his ability to teach with agriculture.“I decided to do agriculture because I want to ensure that local food production increases. When I completed my agriculture studies, I preferred becoming an extension worker to reach the people in various villages,” he added.The NCCC’s agriculture department is comprised of three instructors, who hold the Bachelor’s Degrees in Agriculture, and there are 182 students currently enrolled in the National Diploma in Agriculture at the NCCC.“The program is designed in such that students spend 60 percent of their time in the fields doing practical. We are hoping that the Ebola crisis will soon subside to allow us to recruit more students for the program,” said Dr. Yar Donlah Gonway-Gono, President of the NCCC.“We are greatly overwhelmed with the supports received from USAID FED in making the NCCC one of the most vibrant and motivated institutions in the area of agriculture,” she added.Liesseh Zarpoe, a female agriculture student, asserted that young people must be encouraged to prioritize agriculture to alleviate unemployment. “The agriculture sector of Liberia can rescue more Liberian youths, provided the youths see the reason they need to acquire the skills.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Bundesliga bargains! Five January signings for Man United, Arsenal, Liverpool and more

first_imgOver the past two years, Germany has emerged as an excellent market for clubs looking to recruit top quality players and that reputation has only grown following the country’s World Cup success in the summer.It should come as little surprise to see Premier League clubs reportedly returning to the Bundesliga with the January transfer window in full swing. But who are England’s top clubs looking to bring back with them?Click the arrow to find out… 5 2. Julian Draxler – Schalke to Man City – Click the arrow to see who else could make the move from Bundesliga to Premier League – The Schalke prodigy has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time and if recent reports are anything to go by then he could be making that move as soon as January. According to the Daily Star, Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini wants to bring the 21-year-old to the Etihad in a £25m deal, a fee that meets the Konigsblauen’s valuation of their attacking hotshot. 5 1. Loris Karius – Mainz to Arsenal – Click the arrow to see who else could make the move from Bundesliga to Premier League – One talent to keep an eye on during the January window is Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius. The 21-year-old’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season and, according to Sport Bild at least, could be on the move in January, with Mainz looking to cash in. The publication name Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund as his main suitors, tipping the Gunners to add him to their ever-expanding German contingent. We’re not sure if he smokes in the showers, though. 5 3. Philipp Wollscheid – Bayer Leverkusen to Stoke – Click the arrow to see who else could make the move from Bundesliga to Premier League – One player that looks almost nailed on to move in January is German international Philipp Wollscheid. The defender – who was on loan at Mainz until recently – looks to have secured a short-term move to Stoke, with Potters’ boss Mark Hughes commenting that the club have “agreed the terms of a deal”. 4. Ilkay Gundogan – Borussia Dortmund to Man United – Click the arrow to see who else could make the move from Bundesliga to Premier League – The Red Devils’ interest in Gundogan is well-reported, but according to German publication Kicker, it finally looks as though Dortmund will relent in their struggle to keep the midfielder. With the player’s contract set to expire in 2016, it is reported that the club will allow him to leave unless they can encourage him to sign a new deal. There are suggestions that he could depart even sooner though, with the Express touting January as a potential period. 5 5 5. Xherdan Shaqiri – Bayern Munich to Liverpool – It seems as though Xherdan Shaqiri has grown tired of sitting on the Bayern Munich bench and is ready leave the Allianz Arena in January, according to Sport Bild at least. Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport name Liverpool as being in ‘pole position’ to land the Swiss international, with €15m the reported fee, although they also say that Inter Milan could spoil the party.last_img read more

EXCITING NEW ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT ‘THE BASE’ IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS

first_imgAn exciting new enterprise development called ‘The Base’, which is the brainchild of representatives of BASICC Ltd is now open for business.Historically the Railway Road was a hive of business activity, particularly from the period of the 1860’s to the 1940’s which connected the towns of Ballybofey and Stranorlar with other parts of the country.However, seventy-years on the Railway Road has now been put firmly back on the map thanks to this innovative new development. In 2006 a group of innovative, determined and driven individuals came together to form a community company now known as BASICC (Ballybofey and Stranorlar Integrated Community Company) Ltd.The primary objective and aim of BASICC was to address the social, economic and environmental needs the local area required.BASICC identified that an enterprise centre would be crucial to supporting enterprise development and this became a focus for the group.Through extensive work with partners and funders BASICC secured substantial financial support in order to build ‘The BASE’ Enterprise Centre. The project is funded by the International Fund for Ireland [IFI], Donegal County Council, Enterprise Ireland and by the EU’s INTERREG IVA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.Thanks to this new creation, the Railway Road is now a hub of activity again with much to offer.Some of the businesses in the locality are, the Finn Valley Leisure centre, Finn Community Childcare Centre and the new Finn Harps FC stadium which is currently under construction, and now ‘The BASE’.The BASE comprises over 19,000 square foot of prime space on three floors.This space has been thoughtfully designed to enable business development and growth with dedicated hot desk and start-up space, flexible arrangements, offices and units of various sizes, training facilities, Free Wi-Fi in designated areas, free parking, bright communal spaces and a range of meeting rooms. As well as attracting new business to the area ‘The BASE’ will support existing local businesses by working directly with local business owners and managers.Enterprise Centres are a proven means of generating economic growth.Research carried out on behalf of the National Association of Community Enterprise Centres (NACEC) estimates that 1,133 businesses would not have started if their local enterprise centre did not exist (data taken from 76 centres surveyed in July 2013).The BASE is located in the heart of The County, only 20 minutes’ drive from Letterkenny and Donegal Town, and close to a number of key urban centres in Northern Ireland (Derry, 50km, Strabane, 22km and Omagh 45km). The BASE is within walking distance of the Finn Valley Leisure Centre and dedicated childcare facilities.Kieran Doherty, chairperson for Ballybofey and Stranorlar Integrated Community Company (BASICC) told Donegal Daily, “This is a really exciting time for everyone involved, the centre is a great example of what can be achieved when we all work together.“BASICC was formed in 2006 to address the social, economic and environmental needs of the local area.“We identified from a very early stage that an enterprise centre would be crucial to enabling enterprise development and that it was fundamental in providing connectivity to international opportunities.“This became a focus for us and through work with our partners and funders we now have ‘The BASE’ and a new chapter for enterprise development in this area, he concluded.The ethos at The BASE is one of positive change, energy and enthusiasm.Management and Staff are dedicated to working with occupants and users to overcome barriers, identify opportunities and achieve success.If you would like to arrange a tour of The BASE or to find out more contact:Donna Maskery, Enterprise Centre ManagerTel: 087 607 5555Email: manager@thebaseenterprise.ieWebsite: www.thebaseenterprise.ieThe project is funded by the International Fund for Ireland [IFI], Donegal County Council, Enterprise Ireland and by the EU’s INTERREG IVA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.EXCITING NEW ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT ‘THE BASE’ IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS was last modified: November 6th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:BASICC LtdBusinessDevelopmentEnterpriseFaeturesnewsPRThe Baselast_img read more

DUAL CARRIAGEWAY TO UNDERGO REPAIRS AFTER POTHOLE CRASH FEARS

first_imgThe dual carriageway outside Letterkenny is to undergo repairs in the coming weeks for major potholes.Large potholes have appeared on Letterkenny dual carriageway.Motorists have become very concerned recently after a number of potholes developed on the stretch of road.A number of motorists had complained they were being forced to swerve to avoid the holes. It is believed recent harsh winters caused the potholes.Local election candidates John Watson said he has been contacted by a lot of people in the past week about the deteriorating condition of the surface of the dual carriageway.And he revealed “Many people feared the large holes on the road surface would cause an accident. I have made enquiries regarding this and I have been informed that this is a material failure and that the contractor will be carrying our repairs in the next few weeks.”The matter has also been raised in recent weeks by Letterkenny Town councillor Gerry McMonagle.  DUAL CARRIAGEWAY TO UNDERGO REPAIRS AFTER POTHOLE CRASH FEARS was last modified: May 4th, 2014 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:donegaldual carriagewayletterkennypotholeslast_img read more

Care-A-Van decade old

first_img The United Way paid for a used motor home, which was modified by High Desert Hospital workers into a mobile clinic. Staffed by the Visiting Nurse Association of Los Angeles, the Care-A-Van began operating in June 1995. The van is now operated by Visiting Nurse Community Services as a program of the Partners in Care Foundation. Financing includes both state aid, grants and individual donations. Organizations that have provided money or services include the United Way, the Boeing Employee Community Fund, Blue Shield, Antelope Valley Hospital, Kaiser Permanente, Lancaster community hospital and High Desert Medical Group.

Two physicians, Dr. Andrew Deutsch of Antelope Valley Outpatient Imaging and Dr. Canagaretnam Chandradas of High Desert Health Services, were honored during the dinner with the Rae Yoshida Caring Spirit Award. Deutsch was honored for his and his colleagues’ free radiology services for clinic patients, totaling more than $35,000 over the last four years. Chandradas volunteers to treat patients once a month when the van visits Rosamond. He began volunteering on his days off four years ago. The award was named for a former Antelope Valley College vice president who died in 1994. In 1993, as chairman of the local United Way planning committee, Yoshida arranged a meeting between United Way board members and school nurses frustrated that so many youngsters did not have the immunizations and medical examinations required to enroll in school. PALMDALE – For more than 10 years, a converted motor home has traveled the Antelope Valley, providing checkups, immunizations, cancer screening and other medical care to the poor and uninsured. The Care-A-Van mobile clinic staff saw more than 3,200 patients last year, many in outlying communities like Lake Los Angeles where the closest doctor’s office is miles away, but also at places like Antelope Valley College, where many students have no health insurance. “It is undeniable that many health care services in the Antelope Valley are scarce, especially in the rural areas,” said Deborah Rice, a former Antelope Valley Hospital board member who is now a commissioner of the state Healthcare Workforce Policy. “We have unique barriers,” she added. “Commuters can spend two or three hours a day on the road. If you leave at 6 o’clock in the morning and you don’t arrive home until 7 p.m., where do you go if your child is ill?” last_img read more

Small ball beats money ball

first_img But then in the fifth inning Juan Rivera ignited the somnolent crowd at Angel Stadium with a home run. And then in the sixth inning Bengi Molina increased the volume with a two-out single that tied up matters. Well, it took a while, but after 13 innings of frustration against the New York Yankees across two warm evenings, the Los Angeles Angels of dearly beloved Anaheim finally started playing like the team that stormed into the playoffs and left the Oakland A’s and a lot of other victims sprawled haplessly in their wake throughout September. Trailing 2-0 on Wednesday night after 4 ½ innings to the New York Yankees and looking as feeble against Chien-Wing Wang as they did in Game 1 against Mike Mussina, the Angels seemed destined to suffer the same evil fate they did a year ago in the playoffs when they were swept by the Boston Red Sox. Naturally, George Steinbrenner, continuing to arrogantly eschew Bud Selig’s mantra of fiscal sanity, went out in the offseason and obscenely increased his bloated payroll to more than $200 million by bringing in such high-priced free agents as Randy Johnson ($15.5 million), Carl Pavano ($9 million) and Jaret Wright ($5.6 million) to enhance a pitching staff that betrayed the Yankees against the Boston Red Sox last October. Johnson, who will start against the Angels on Friday night at Yankee Stadium, did well with his 17-8, 3.79 ERA, 211-strikeout production, although such numbers are modest when measured against his glittering Cy Young past seasons. Pavano (4-6, 4.77) and Wright (5-5, 6.08), both of whom were hampered by injuries, turned out to be total busts, but it didn’t make any difference since a couple midseason additions to the New York roster, Aaron Small, a 33-year-old journeyman brought up from Columbus on July 17 who wound up going 10-0, and Shawn Chacon, who was acquired from Colorado on July 28 and wound up going 7-3, turned out to be even better. While Steinbrenner hasn’t been able to buy himself a world championship in recent years his team hasn’t won a World Series since 2000 it’s not that he hasn’t tried, much to the delight of one of his other pitching disappointments, Kevin Brown, the perennially injured fellow who heisted $15.7 million from Steinbrenner for dispensing a horrid 4-7 record with a 6.50 ERA. And the same goes for Steinbrenner’s counterpart in Anaheim, Arte Moreno, who wants to win a World Series just as desperately as Steinbrenner but refuses to pursue the same financial excessiveness. Lest you think Moreno oversees a shoestring operation, forget it. He does have a $95 million payroll, and went out in recent years and handed out considerable chunks of money to the likes of Vladimir Guerrero ($70 million), Bartolo Colon ($51 million), Orlando Cabrera ($32 million), Kelvim Escobar ($18 million) and Steve Finley ($14 million). But the Angels are pikers compared to the Yankees, whose turnabout in recent weeks isn’t a surprise in light of their lordly roster of players that, ironically, includes one vital contributor, the rookie second baseman Robinson Cano, earning the major-league minimum of $316,000. Cano, a 22-year-old Dominican, has been harassing the Angels, with his three-run, first-inning double in Game 1 providing the Yankees with their 4-2 victory and his second-inning double Wednesday night getting his team off to a 1-0 lead. But this time the Yankees’ lead didn’t last. This time the Angels rallied spectacularly, as they did so often three years ago during their World Series drive when they rebounded from opening-game playoff losses against the Yankees, Minnesota Twins and San Francisco Giants. This time the Yankees’ pitching and defense faltered, and the Angels came up with all the vital hits in the crisis situations. This time the Rally Monkey didn’t betray the Angels. This time the Angels turned the clock back to 2002, which is what they did those final five innings Wednesday night when they showed the Yankees they weren’t ready for a meek surrender. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

And so, the Angels, who were dangling on the precipice and were facing the harrowing prospect of having to go back to New York down 0-2, are once again breathing strongly and confidently after a game in which they demonstrated the defining trait of the Mike Scioscia Era resilience and toughness. Oh, did the Angels show it Wednesday night against a Yankees team that slowly unraveled, committing three errors that contributed mightily to the hometown heroes’ welfare. Molina, the Angels’ slow-footed but clutch-hitting catcher, climaxed his team’s scoring in the eighth inning with a home run that provided a cushion for Rodriguez, who did yield a ninth-inning homer to Jorge Posada but nothing else to a Yankees team that seems so imposing with its glittering lineup of performers that one wonders how it ever loses a game. I mean, please, the Yankees are overflowing with talented multi-millionaire jocks, with seven of their everyday starters earning immense annual salaries, led by Alex Rodriguez’s $25.7 million, followed by Derek Jeter’s $19.6 million, Jason Giambi’s $13.4 million, Gary Sheffield’s $11.5 million, Jorge Posada’s $11 million and Hideki Matsui’s $8 million. last_img read more

Chelsea fans on Twitter criticise Cahill

first_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook Embed from Getty ImagesMany Chelsea fans on Twitter laid into Gary Cahill after the club’s shock 3-0 home defeat by Bournemouth on Wednesday.The Blues skipper – who this month celebrated six years at the club – was found wanting for all three Bournemouth goals in a horrific 15-minute spell.That provoked fury among  a number of supporters.Cahill is one of my favourite players but his legs have gone, really struggled all season #CFC— Jonny Hipwell (@jonny_13) January 31, 2018Asking for trouble playing Cahill at the back tonight. Been a good player for us but has been past it for a while now. Have seen Roman sack managers after results like this one 😬 #cfc #chelsea— Kris Reid (@KrisTatco) January 31, 2018All 3 goals attributable to Gary Cahill. The guy is completely out of his depth in that central position in the back. His movement for the second goal is particularly comical. #CHEBOU #cfc— Aditya Balaraman (@adityabalaraman) January 31, 2018Gary Cahill had an absolute shocker tonight!— Mike Flatt (@MikeFlatt86) January 31, 2018Is Gary Cahill still wandering around Stamford Bridge looking for his man?— Charlie Bone (@CarefreeCharlie) January 31, 2018We had Terry, now Cahill.
