We will try to compete as hard as we can against them,” said Alas. “But right now, the test will be to beat the teams that are in the same level as we are in. I’m not saying we’re better than the rest of the field.

Anxiety Builds over ‘Magic Day’

first_imgLiberia is left with less than ten days to be declared Ebola free by the World Health Organization (WHO) if no new cases of the deadly Ebola virus emerge anywhere in the country.Due to the tremendous anxiety building up to May 9 when Liberia is declared Ebola free, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has dubbed it the ‘Magic Day’.President Sirleaf, who has admitted to religiously counting down the days to the total eradication of the deadly Ebola virus, is aware that the entire country is also looking forward with both anxiety and excitement to the ‘Magic Day’ when Liberia will be declared Ebola free.The President bared her anxiety and that of the nation when she received a high-level United States delegation from the Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday at her Foreign Ministry office in Monrovia.The delegation was led by the United States Surgeon General, Vice Admiral Dr. Vivek Murthy, whose position is the Liberian equivalent of Chief Medical Officer.President Sirleaf indicated that Liberians need to celebrate their triumph on that ‘Magic Day’ because it is their combined hard work that has allowed the country to reach thus far.She recognized the concerns being raised about the significance of Liberia being declared Ebola free while its two bordering neighbors, Guinea and Sierra Leone, are still struggling to contain the virus.The US delegation has come at a time when the country is preparing to evaluate what it has gone through during the Ebola crisis, said the President.  “We appreciate the role of the U.S. Government through its many institutions, including the military, Public Health Service officers, USAID and others during the fight against the Ebola virus.“You have come at a time when we can just say thanks for all that the United States has done and continues to do to rid the country of Ebola,” Madam Sirleaf said.She made it known that the country is open to suggestions on how to improve the partnership with all of its friends, including the United States as it looks forward to rebuilding the healthcare system.She also expressed satisfaction over the on-going U.S. assessment at the John F. Kennedy Medical Center that seeks to improve conditions at the hospital and facilitate the provision of specialized services for Liberians.The President urged greater cooperation and partnership from the US government and other multilateral institutions during the post-Ebola period to ensure efficient and effective implementation of the various programs and interventions that will be captured in the country’s National Recovery Plan.Speaking earlier, Surgeon General Murthy said he was happy to be in Liberia for the countdown to the final defeat of the Ebola virus. “We are glad to have partnered with you and are also looking forward to reaching the ‘Magic Day’ with the Liberian people. “We also know that there is still a lot of work to be done with the healthcare system even after Ebola is gone and you can count on the partnership of the Public Health Services officers,” he promised.The U.S. Surgeon General indicated that he was interested in what happens with primary healthcare infrastructures and remains eager to partner with the government in addressing some of the challenges.He called on the Liberian government to draw from some of the experiences of the U.S. Healthcare Services by focusing on mental health and seek to build a system that promotes both clinical prevention and community prevention as well.“You must build on prevention while rebuilding the healthcare system,” Surgeon General Murthy admonished. He expressed satisfaction that his team, the U.S. Public Health Service officers, was able to run the Monrovia Medical Unit that provided treatment, psychosocial and psychological support during the Ebola outbreak.US Ambassador Deborah Malac, who led the team to the meeting, briefed President Sirleaf about their tour of the JFK Medical Center and the pending assessment of the facilities.She disclosed that a team from the U.S is expected next week to sit with government actors and the in-country U.S. team on how to strengthen the hospital, including the establishment of a public health laboratory.Ambassador Malac reassured President Sirleaf of U.S. cooperation and continuous partnership during the recovery phase of the crisis.

first_imgThe practitioners will function as a team as they work with physicians already in Fort St. John in providing services such as annual physical exams, patient counselling, health promotion, immunizations, diagnosing and treating short term acute illnesses, and monitoring and treating chronic illnesses.In a release Health Minister Terry Lake said, “By bringing in three new nurse practitioners, we’re helping toaddress patient needs in Fort St. John and continue to address the need for primary care services in the community.

Together, we are also supporting the drive to have more doctors come, which helps make FortSt. John an attractive place for families, and a great place to start a career in health.”last_img read more

Bruins may go after Norton

first_img Toledo is owed $153,000 over each of the next three years by UCLA, but his salary at New Mexico would be subtracted from that total. Another potential move on the staff is special teams/safeties coach Brian Schneider taking over Eric Bieniemy’s position of recruiting coordinator while remaining the coach of the special teams, sources said. Brian Dohn, (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! UCLA is in the market for a defensive coordinator after Larry Kerr’s firing Tuesday, but it is believed Norton would coach the linebackers. Kerr also coached UCLA’s linebackers. Norton, who began coaching at USC as a graduate assistant, was elevated to full-time status last February. He was one of Dorrell’s biggest backers when the search to replace Bob Toledo was conducted, but there were ruffled feathers when Norton sought a spot on Dorrell’s staff and was overlooked. Norton then angered many UCLA fans when he took the USC job. Karl Dorrell’s remaking of UCLA’s defensive staff could include former linebacker Ken Norton, but it is uncertain whether the Bruins can pull him away from rival USC, according to sources. Several former UCLA players, who backed Dorrell’s hiring three years ago, put out feelers to Norton to gauge his interest in returning to Westwood, sources said Wednesday. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita Also, former Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Jerry Gray, a former University of Texas All-American, said he was interested in the Bruins’ defensive coordinator job. He interviewed for the defensive coordinator’s job at Texas last year, but remained with the Bills. “To me, any chance you get to help young kids and develop them, I think that’s more important than being in the NFL,” said Gray, who added he knew Dorrell through a mutual friend. “I was interested in Texas. Why wouldn’t I be interested in UCLA?” Gray, who spent the past five seasons in Buffalo, interviewed for the defensive coordinator positions with the NFL’s Green Bay Packers and Houston Texans. His defense ranked in the top five in several major categories in 2004, including touchdowns allowed, yards per game, passing yards and sacks. Two other possible candidates are Texas co-defensive Duane Akina, who was offered the job before Kerr was hired three years ago, and former New York Giants defensive coordinator Johnnie Lynn, who was the Baltimore Ravens’ defensive backs coach the last two seasons. Dorrell is interested in hiring a defensive coordinator with NFL experience, sources said, but money could be an issue. But UCLA may have freed up a significant chunk of cash when Toledo accepted the offensive coordinator’s position at the University of New Mexico this week. last_img read more

Pedro Caixinha still believes in Rangers project despite European humiliation

first_img Pedro Caixinha 1 Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha insists he believes in his players and his rebuilding job after their shock European exit in Luxembourg.Four of Caixinha’s eight summer signings started the 2-0 defeat by Progres Niederkorn and another two came off the bench as Rangers exited 2-1 on aggregate in the Europa League first qualifying round.Progres had never won a European tie before and had only scored once, against Glentoran, in 12 matches in UEFA competitions.Rangers hit the bar three times in the Stade Josy Barthel but struggled to impose themselves on their opponents for large periods of the two legs and the Portuguese coach now finds himself under serious pressure at an early stage in his Ibrox project.Caixinha, who is set to make Scotland midfielder Graham Dorrans his ninth signing, told Rangers TV: “I am always a positive guy and I never give up. I believe in this process and it is a tough moment that we are leaving, and we need to face it with all our character, personality and strength, and that is what I am going to do.“I believe in this process, I believe in these players and I believe in the work that we are going to do. I think it is a strong lesson we need to learn from now on, and we need to focus on the positive side that is coming regarding to the future.”The Rangers team bus was surrounded by angry fans on the way out of the stadium and Caixinha was pictured standing in shrubbery conversing with supporters on the other side of a fence, shaking hands with some but was also photographed pointing his finger as a club official tried to usher him away.And the 46-year-old had a message to the Rangers followers.“I assume all the responsibility and all the disappointment, and of course, we need to apologise to our fans,” he said.“They have shown their loyalty to the club and they don’t deserve this. What we need is to keep going and to keep working – working harder, having this game as a strong lesson and keep looking forwards.”last_img read more


first_imgMalin GAA NotesMENS FOOTBALLLast weekends scheduled games v Termon were postponed due to a death in the Termon club. Senior and Reserves will not be in action this weekend due to the Ulster final. LADIES FOOTBALLWell Done to the Senior Ladies who had a hard fought win over Convoy B on Sunday. Missing some key young players the Malin outfit was still strong, with the ladies dominating the majority of the first half. The win however wasn’t easily achieved and the ladies used what they learned against Red Hugh’s in previous weeks to their advantage. As highlighted on Facebook on Sunday the ‘take your points and the goals will come’ adage was the opposite for the ladies in this game. Goals came from Captain Grainne Byrne, Emer Lafferty, Frances Mc Donald and making her way from her usual backline position and putting her best (left) foot forward was U8 Girls Manager Angela O Donnell. Angela also placed the ladies only point on the board from a free. Granted these scores could have not happened without the support of half forwards Amy Mc Clean, Maria Mc Laughlin F and Michelle Doherty. It was young player Chelsea Stevens that set up many attack on the Convoy side however with a bit more experience and the ability to her time will lead to her name surely on the Malin score sheet in future games. Standing tall in the Malin Goal was Marion Collins not being one not to feel the pressure, Marion had a overall impressive game. However, it was the Great Wall of Marion O Donnell, Jennifer Mc Laughlin and Maureen Collins that ensured that these attacks where broke down, that was the end of that. It wasn’t a easy task but the back line was tough, with the speed of Nataile O Meara, Linda Mc Colgan and Catherine Smyth ensured that when that ball got going, it away like a flash of lighting up the field. With the experience of Grainne Byrne and Emer Lafferty in the middle, Malin had it in the bag and out the gate. The Ladies know that the league hasn’t been won yet and the Championship is just around the corner. With 4 out of 5 wins the team will be focusing on their training and building on their strengths. Final Score: Malin Ladies 4:01 Convoy B 2:05. Well Done once again to the Senior Ladies & Management on their win.UNDER 18 BOYSWell Done to the Minor Team who had a 4-04 to 0-12 victory over St. Eunan’s B in the Northern Board Division 2 Championship Monday evening.

With strong performances from Aiden Bambrick, Conor Mc Colgan, & Joe Doherty ensured a Malin win on one of their first Championship games on their home ground this season. Goals came from Jonathan Mc Laughlin , Jordan Mc Laughlin, Joe Doherty & Peter Doherty. Next up for the Minor Team will be Milford at home. Date & time yet to be confirmed.

We would like to thank all the parents and supporters who travelled for the teams.U10 GIRLS: On Saturday morning the U10 Girls hosted Urris in a closely contested match. With some great displays & a tight match throughout it ended with a draw. The young Malin side worked hard together, from Goalkeeper Gemma Mc Daid, to the defense line of Tara Mc Laughlin, Aishing Doherty, Claire Mc Gilloway, and Kate Mc Callion. In the middle was Sophie Murphy & Aine Monegle, while the forward line up included Twins Shayna & Cliona Mc Geoghegan, Rachel Crossan, Suzie Lafferty, Clodagh Farren & Keava Mc Laughln.

The names of the six teams are the Snowdrop, the Crocus, the Daffodil, the Tulip, the Hyacinth, and the Iris. Some of the teams had a slow start on the first week but following that, the majority of the ladies braved the winter weather and played the 10 holes weekly. The week of 22 – 28 February, was the only week that saw a poor return for the teams, as it was just nearly impossible to get a few hours without severe gusts of wind and rain to play. There are very little points between the six teams as they go into the final so it is all to play for this week.GOLF: MURVAGH GC CAPTAIN’S DRIVE-IN TAKES PLACE SATURDAY was last modified: March 2nd, 2015 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:donegalMurvagh Golf Clublast_img read more

Wonder a Super addition

first_imgMotown fans miffed by the NFL’s choice of the Rolling Stones for Super Bowl halftime entertainment are getting at least some satisfaction: Stevie Wonder will perform during the pre-game show at Ford Field. Wonder will perform three or four songs before the Feb. 5 game, Lori Lambert, vice president of strategic marketing for Universal Motown Records Group, told The Associated Press on Monday. Other artists – still to be announced – also will be featured in the pre-game show, Lambert said. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league wasn’t prepared to make an announcement about the pre-game show. However, he said, “We would be thrilled to be able to work with Stevie Wonder again.” Wonder performed during halftime in 1999. The NFL’s announcement last week that the Rolling Stones would provide the halftime entertainment prompted an uproar in Detroit, the original home of Motown Records, the label for artists such as Wonder, Smokey Robinson, the Supremes and the Four Tops. Detroit-area residents are fiercely proud of the city’s musical contributions, which extend beyond Motown to more recent stars including Eminem and Kid Rock. Aretha Franklin’s career started at the Detroit church where her father preached, and the Queen of Soul still lives in the area. Ted Nugent, Madonna and Bob Seger also hail from Michigan. Many saw it as a snub that those stars were passed over for halftime. Detroit radio personality Mildred Gaddis gave out the phone number of an NFL official on the air and urged listeners to call and complain. McCarthy said it was always the league’s intention to honor Motown in the pre-game show. But halftime, he said, is bigger than Detroit. “The Super Bowl transcends the host city and even the country,” he said. McCarthy noted that the 1998 Super Bowl in San Diego featured a Motown tribute in honor of the label’s 40th anniversary. Performers included Robinson, Martha Reeves and The Temptations.
