President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has charged the Ministry of Justice to continue the campaign to make Liberia a corruption-free society. Addressing heads of Liberia’s security sector when she paid an early morning visit to the Ministry of Justice on Thursday, President Sirleaf said corruption is still a cancer in Liberia and that the Ministry of Justice should stand firm to help weed out this menace from the Liberian society.“We can’t build the roads and improve the schools and improve the salaries and do all of that if there is continued leakage into private purposes,” President Sirleaf stressed.The Liberian leader challenged every Liberian to be involved in the ongoing fight against corruption that has witnessed the creation of institutions such as the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC), the Internal Audit Secretariat, and the Public Procurement and Concession Commission (PPCC). “It is a challenge for all of us. It’s a challenge for almost every Liberian who wants to see public resources used for the betterment of the lives of Liberian people. We can’t have it both ways”, the President added.The President emphasized that in spite of numerous anti-graft legislations, policies, various accountability and integrity institutions, the battle against corruption cannot be won without implementation. Speaking directly to officials of the government’s leading prosecutorial agency, the President Sirleaf directed the Ministry of Justice to step up efforts in prosecuting alleged corrupt officials.The President said, “Unless you can punish a few people – unless you can show that dishonesty does not pay – all of the [anti-graft] efforts amount to nothing.”President Sirleaf called on the officials of the Justice Ministry to remain in the forefront of the battle against corruption and urged Min. Benedict Sannoh to strengthen the effectiveness of the prosecution arm of the Justice Ministry to enable it to take concrete actions against those involved in corrupt practices.Upon taking office in 2005, President Sirleaf declared corruption as a major public enemy, which she vowed to stamp out of the Liberian society.MoJ to Execute New Security Council ResolutionNewly-inducted Justice Minister Cllr. Benedict Sannoh has told President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf that the Ministry plans to operationalize the UN Security Council Resolution 2190. The UNSC Resolution calls on Liberia to take full charge of security within its borders by 2016.According to the Justice Minister, the operational plan will commence within the next three weeks and will be implemented in close collaboration with the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).Responding, President Sirleaf instructed the Justice Ministry to ensure that the security transition plan is time-bound with clear benchmarks to ensure that the process is smooth and gradual.President Sirleaf Impressed with New Police ImagePresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says she is impressed with the improving image of the Liberian National Police and the growing sense of public acceptance of the force.The Liberian leader lauded the police for rebuilding its image and challenged them to invest more into community policing.“I commend you for the changing perception of the police in the improving conduct of the officers for which we are seeing better public acceptance of the police and its protection of the people. This is a change which must continue with increased respect for rights as well as disciplined and professional care in the exercise of your duty”, the President concluded.STEP UP OR STEP OUTPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has called on public officials to step up or step out. The Liberian leader made the call when she paid an early morning visit to the Justice Ministry on Thursday.”We have a lot of work to do in our post – Ebola recovery, and will need to be focused and dedicated with each doing their very best to achieve the best for our people”, the Liberian leader said.She added that she will not hesitate to wield the administrative axe as needed whenever weak links to progress are identified.Meanwhile the President has asked members of the Executive Branch to think outside the box and explore new ways to get the job done, adding “we must get the development agenda back on track as soon as possible.”Cabinet RetreatThe Liberian cabinet met over a two-day period this week to agree on a road map for the next three years of the administration. The venue was Jalijuah, in Bomi County.Under the direction of the President, the Cabinet assessed the national development agenda and agreed upon a plan which is time-bond and realistic.In recent meetings with the Chief Justice and the Speaker as well as at the Justice Ministry, the President called on public officials to be focused and dedicated to their duties and functions so as to achieve the best for the Liberian people.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
A Lieutenant Colonel of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) has completed a Master of Arts Degree in Strategic Security Studies and a War College Diploma in International Security and Combating Terrorism from the College of International Security Affairs (CISA) at the National Defence University, Washington, DC.Lieutenant Colonel Trevor Bowman recently graduated with honours after successfully completing the programme conducted from July 3, 2017 to June 7, 2018. Lieutenant Colonel Bowman received honours for his research paper titled “Lessons from Trinidad and Tobago: Addressing Crime and Preventing the Rise ofLieutenant Colonel Trevor Bowman (right) and a fellow student at the National Defence UniversityRadicalism in Guyana.”The Combating Terrorism Fellowship Programme is the flagship academic programme conducted by CISA, which targets the development of strategic leaders to confront complex national, regional, and global security challenges such as State instability, insurgency, and terrorism.The Lieutenant Colonel noted that the programme showed a troubling convergence of terrorism and crime, underscoring the importance of a holistic rather than militarised approach in combating security challenges.For Guyana, he explained, “it is of particular relevance, as our country still wrestles with crime at both the domestic and transnational levels. Moreover, our emerging oil economy will see an influx of foreigners into the country. This dictates that the terrorist threat should never be disregarded.”Apart from this recent achievement, Lieutenant Colonel Bowman has successfully completed several courses overseas, including the Jungle Warfare and Jumpmaster Courses in Brazil, the Special Operations and Psychological Operations Courses in the USA, and the French Commando Course in both French Guiana and Martinique.The Lieutenant Colonel is also the only serving GDF officer to complete the All-Arms Commando Course conducted by the British Royal Marines, UK.
… has done little to create new jobs, investmentsThe parliamentary Opposition is contending that after being in office for over two years, the coalition Government has done little to create new jobs as it inherited most of the major job creating investments currently in place.Opposition Leader, Bharrat JagdeoOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo took a swing at the Government when he questioned what new jobs were being created by the Administration, noting that most major investments currently contributing to Guyana’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and creating jobs were brought in under the People’s Progressive Party (PPP).“Almost every single (investment they have,) they’ve inherited. This Government has done nothing new to create jobs since it took office. After criticising us for selling out the land on the public road at Liliendaal, we see now a major construction activity going on there (Movietown),” Jagdeo said at a recent press conference.“And after criticising us about the land policy in relation to the Marriott Hotel, there’s a structure there today that this Government enjoys. And Teleperformance started under the PPP. And now the latest thing is Qualfon campus. That land was given by the PPP to Qualfon to construct that facility, as a result of which you got a US$5 million investment and a thousand Guyanese will be employed there. What have they done?”Jagdeo pointed to the recent investment conferences in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom that have been attended by President David Granger, Business Minister Dominic Gaskin and other senior officials.“The President goes off on investment conferences, not a single investment. We’ve had investment conferences to Miami, Canada, London; (and) nothing materialises out of these frequent visits abroad. They’re living off of past investments and past flows, not creating new values or new jobs.” The Opposition Leader added that two of the thriving gold fields along with the oil and gas sector investments were all negotiated under the PPP Administration.“What have they done? They’ve not done anything. They have no plans for the future because when you ask them, they’re still working on plans for the future. This is their third year in office,” Jagdeo asked.InvestmentsDespite Guyana’s abundance of natural resources and acres of arable farm lands, the dire state of foreign direct investments in Guyana is one that even Minister Gaskin has acknowledged.During the recent Heads of Mission conference in Guyana, Gaskin had told the gathering that Guyana had no investment opportunities to offer for the time being. He had noted that while the Guyana Office for Investment (GO-Invest) is promoting Guyana’s image, GO-Invest faces challenges.“Investors generally want to know what specific projects we have for them to invest in. And we have none. And therefore we tend to lose the interest of the investor because there are other countries competing for those limited investment funds that have tangible investment projects to offer,” he said.“So the truth is that right now we’re not speaking a language that investors are looking to hear. You may have noticed that for the most part investors are looking for some kind of partnership with the Government. That is their preference because it gives them the confidence and security they are looking for. This is especially so for foreign investors including Diaspora investors,” the Minister had added.JobsLast year, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) revealed in its annual report that unemployment in Latin America and the Caribbean reached 8.1 per cent in 2016. This, ILO had said, represented the highest unemployment rate in a decade. And due to slow growth forecasts for 2017, the organisation had warned of a potential increase in the job less.Since the rate was 1.5 per cent higher than the rate in 2015, they had adjudged that some five million people had joined the ranks of the unemployed.There is no updated data at present on the rate of unemployment specific to Guyana. However, the Government has plans to conduct a Labour Force Survey in the second quarter of 2017.

Maybe it’s not a surprise for the coach who reached 900 wins faster than anyone in NBA history, but Phil Jackson arrived at Staples Center for Thursday night’s game having been a part of only two five-game losing streaks in all his years of coaching. Make that three five-game losing streaks and an agonizing weekend of soul-searching for the Lakers, who faltered once again down the stretch and lost 114-108 to the Cleveland Cavaliers in their final game before the All-Star break. “I think that I saw players that had quit in their eyes tonight,” Jackson said, “and that bothered me. I thought I saw guys that felt defeated when I kind of got after them about their defense or about playing with urgency. “They just had a vacant look, and really that bothers me about this team. I think they’ve got to come back with a renewed spirit.” The Lakers went into a timeout leading 101-100 with 3:25 left, but couldn’t close out the game, keep the Cavaliers off the foul line or grab another key rebound late. That was enough for Cleveland, which finished the game on a 14-7 run. So went the second showdown of the week between Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. James finished with 38 points while Bryant led the Lakers with 34 points, but the difference came at the foul line in the 2-hour, 52-minute game. The Cavaliers made one fewer free throw than the Lakers shot as a team, going 41 of 55 from the line. Cleveland shot 18 free throws to six for the Lakers in the fourth quarter, and finished the game with five straight trips to the line, hitting 9 of 10 free throws. “We couldn’t seem to stop the basketball,” Jackson said. “When a team shoots 55 free throws, let alone on your home court, they’re just taking the ball right to you, and we had no answer for that.” Jackson had suffered only two previous five-game losing streaks in 16 seasons as an NBA coach. One came with the 1993-94 Chicago Bulls and one last season with the Lakers, although Bryant served an NBA suspension in two of those five losses. Each of the Lakers’ three previous losses was decided late in the fourth quarter, and Thursday was no different. The Lakers came out of the timeout with 3:25 left and lost their lead in a matter of moments. James hit a 15-foot fadeaway over Bryant, then stole a Bryant pass at the other end. When Lamar Odom went to double-team James, the Cavaliers moved the ball and Sasha Pavlovic knocked down an open 3-pointer. The Cavaliers led 105-101 and stayed in front as Eric Snow drove past Smush Parker and twice got to the line. He fouled out Andrew Bynum with his first drive and converted all four free throws. Bryant buried a 3-pointer off an inbounds play with 34.3 seconds remaining as the Lakers closed to 109-108. But James worked his way around a screen-and-roll and was fouled by Bryant with 20.1 seconds to play. He made the first of two free throws and missed the second, but the Lakers couldn’t grab the rebound, even though Jackson had brought Ronny Turiaf in for just that purpose. Turiaf and Bryant wound up knocking the ball to Anderson Varejao, who passed it back outside to James. It was d j vu for the Lakers. They were unable to rebound a missed free throw in Friday’s loss to Toronto and a missed 3-pointer in Tuesday’s loss to the Knicks. James was fouled and went back to the line with 11.7 seconds left. He sank both free throws and finished the game having made 10 of 16 shots and 18 of 22 free throws. The Lakers will take a 30-24 record into the All-Star break; they were 28-26 after 54 games last season. Even with two months left to play, the Lakers are settling into sixth place in the Western Conference standings. firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3610 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

And then in the 90th minute, Jesus scored on a rebound of his own shot after a series of clinical passes inside the Czech box.The Czechs took the lead in the 37th minute when midfielder David Pavelka found himself in possession behind a leaky Brazil defence and slammed the ball in past Alisson.Roberto Firmino equalised four minutes after half-time, picking up a pass aimed at Czech sweeper Marek Suchy inside the box and firing home.“I’m super happy with Gabriel Jesus, I’m glad I gave him a chance in the second half,” said Brazil coach Tite, praising the 72nd-minute substitute for his offensive drive.The Selecao dominated the opening minutes, but the Czechs soon levelled the game.Czech striker Patrick Schick had the first shot on goal of the game, forcing a diving save from Alisson at his right post with a low left-footed free kick deflected by the wall.The Czechs kept trying their luck from long range, but Vladimir Darida fired past the post and Filip Novak saw his attempt stopped by Alisson.Brazil had a lone shot on goal in the first-half but Czech keeper Jiri Pavlenka had little trouble parrying away Casemiro’s free kick.In the second period, Philippe Coutinho saw his low shot cleared by a diving Pavlenka while substitute Neres fired into the Bremen keeper from close range.“The Czechs were more creative in the first-half, we lacked this aspect,” said Tite.“The first-half was tough, I was upset with the passing, but second-half substitutions allowed us to combine better.”Both teams entered the game with mixed feelings.The Czechs were digesting a 5-0 loss to England in a Euro 2020 qualifier at Wembley on Saturday, their worst defeat in memory.And Brazil, preparing to host this year’s Copa America which starts on June 14, were held to a 1-1 draw by Panama in a friendly in Porto on the same day.“Of course we will assess all players’ performances in these two games — but we still have time before the final nomination for the Copa America,” said Tite.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Substitute Gabriel Jesus scored twice in the closing minutes to help Brazil come from behind to beat the Czech Republic 3-1 in a friendly in Prague © AFP / JOE KLAMARPRAGUE, Czech Republic, Mar 27 – Substitute Gabriel Jesus scored twice in the closing minutes to help Brazil come from behind to beat the Czech Republic 3-1 in a friendly in Prague on Tuesday.The Manchester City striker first slammed home a cross from David Neres who had sprinted down the left flank following a superb pass from Danilo on 83 minutes.
0Shares0000Kevin de Bruyne scored one and made one as Manchester City beat Sheffield United 2-0© AFP Lindsey ParnabyMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 29 – Manchester City shrugged off a tight turnaround from defeat at Wolves to beat Sheffield United 2-0 on Sunday thanks to second half strikes from Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne.City boss Pep Guardiola had lambasted the scheduling that saw the English champions kick-off less than 48 hours after playing the majority of Friday’s 3-2 defeat at Molineux with 10 men. Fatigue seemed to get the better of City in the first half as the Blades enjoyed the better of the chances and had a goal ruled out after a VAR review for offside.However, the greater individual quality at Guardiola’s disposal decided the game as De Bruyne teed up Aguero to smash into the roof of the net seven minutes after the break.De Bruyne then rounded off another excellent display by scoring the second himself with a fine finish eight minutes from time to inflict United’s first defeat away from home for nearly a year.Despite claiming the Premier League and broadcasters “don’t care” about player welfare given the schedule his side were handed over the festive period, Guardiola made just three changes to the side that started against Wolves.City’s sluggish start should have punished by the visitors with Lys Mousset particularly wasteful.The Frenchman spurned a glorious early chance to put United ahead when he get on the end of a floated Callum Robinson cross but headed wide.The hosts were restricted to long-range efforts early on but De Bruyne, Rodrigo and Raheem Sterling were all unable to work goalkeeper Dean Henderson.United thought they had claimed the lead on 29 minutes when Mousset raced onto a long ball from John Fleck and fired home.City were furious because they thought Aguero had been fouled in the build-up but, while their complaints were brushed aside by referee Chris Kavanagh, VAR came to their aid by ruling Mousset was marginally offside.It was a let-off for City but they were caught out by a long ball again as Oliver Norwood picked out Mousset from just outside his own box.This time Mousset was onside but could only shoot into the side-netting.The lack of a clinical finisher has been the only thing holding back a stunning return to the Premier League by Chris Wilder’s men and they got a lesson in taking their chances from City’s all-time record scorer soon after the break.De Bruyne picked out the Argentinian with a fine through ball and Aguero blasted high past Henderson from a narrow angle.Riyad Mahrez then teed up De Bruyne to wrap up the points in the closing minutes as the Belgian finished powerfully after taking a nice touch inside the area.Billy Sharp went close to grabbing a late consolation but his header rebounded off the post.0Shares0000(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)
Tir Chonaill Gaels Club Notes 15/07/2013:Seniors:The senior team played Fulham Irish last Thursday in the replay of the Conway cup after the drawn match on the previous Friday. Played in the Scrubs it was Fulham who got off to the better start with four unanswered points in the opening five minutes. Although playing into the breeze the Gaels had numerous chances with Liam Gavaghan, John Mc Grath and Marty Mc Coy registering scores. At half time Fulham went in with a lead of 0-7 to 0-4, but with the breeze on their backs the lads piled on the pressure in the 2nd half with some excellent play all round with special mention for Marty Mc Coy, Jonnie Mc Nicholas, Luke Kavanagh and Whoppa.Final score TCG 1-10 to 0-9.Last Sunday we defeated a spirited Cuchullains team in the league at a scorching Greenford by a score of 1-23 to 3-6.Best on the day were Damian Donnellan, Luke Kavanagh, Eoin Mageean and John Mc Grath. Juniors:After a shaky start to the season, our junior team turned on the style with a comprehensive performance against a fancied St Anthonys last Sunday in the championship. Played in scorching conditions at Ruislip the Young Guns put on a display not shown to date this season and have put down a marker.Although it is early days with many a bridge to cross it was very encouraging to see this young and upcoming team show what they can do when asked.The first half was nip and tuck with both defences not giving an inch and with it showing on the half hour mark a score line of 1-1 to 0-1 in favour of the Gaels.The goal courtesy of Kieran Cunningham after a fine build up involving Patrick and John Flynn and Liam Gavaghan. In the second half the Young Guns turned the screw with another goal coming from Ryan Kearney and points from Gavaghan, Flynn, Fortune, Moriarty and Cunningham.This was a great all round team performance with the defence back to their measly best and Tommy Moriarty giving a man of the match performance.Fixtures:This Thursday 18th July the senior team will play Neasden Gaels in the semi final of the Conway cup at Ruislip with a 7pm throw-in.

By Bradas McDyerIt’s time to get registered for the Charles McGuinness memorial 10k road race.This year’s event will take place at 12:30pm next Sunday, September 8th. Growing steadily in popularity, 2013 promises to be the biggest and best yet! We are delighted to have this year’s race included in the Donegal Athletic Board Grand Prix. The route will be the same as last year registration details will be posted shortly.The event was renamed in 2011 and The McGuinness family from Ard Patrick in Glenties are delighted that Charles, their son and brother will be remembered in this way every year.It is a small tribute to a young man taken from this life in 1985 at the age of just 16, a young man whose athletic fervour for football, cycling and running to name just a few sports has left memories that will continue to inspire those who remember. Indeed when Charles last ran the original race in the 80’s he came home first with brother, Jim in second. It’s just our way of saluting someone who was even crazier about physical fitness and competition than we are.The route will see the participants start about 500 metres out the Station Road (Fintown/Letterkenny side), then travel into and up the Main Street, out the Ardara road for a kilometre before turning left into the wonderfully scenic, Meenahalla. From here you continue along the southern flank of The Big Glen of Glenties onwards over The Navy Poet, Patrick MacGill’s “Braes of old Strasala” before dropping down to follow the glen back down into town, with a finish on the bridge.http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/121748567 is a link to a course map with a profile of the inclines and declines. Drag your cursor along the red profile line to see the elevation related on the map.The course is considered quite fast, flat with only a few short inclines between kms four and five (don’t blow a gasket!) There’s a nice downhill as a reward immediately after.The final 4.5kms are really fast with just two, much shorter rises just after the 9km marker. A nice downhill will see you power the last 500 metres to the adulation of your fans and festival goers.The Annual Harvest Fair float parade starts shortly afterwards, but don’t worry as you will have plenty of time to enjoy the refreshments and the awards ceremony before the fun of the fair kicks off! The event is open to all, runners and walkers as we love to see people attempting this fun family event!If you don’t fancy competing maybe you’d like to help with marshalling!For more info call me Bradas or Tracy on 086-3530537 or 086-1065173All proceeds from the event will go to The Irish Heart Foundation.
