first_imgThe lack of support for education in the country is an age-old dilemma that has contributed immensely to the downward trend the sector has taken over the years. Now, there are strong indications that lawmakers are ready to dialogue with the Executive Branch of the government to commit the needed resources to fix the system.Sinoe County Senator, J. Milton Teahjay, a member of the Senate Committee on Education, has suggested that the government do away with what he calls “lip-service” and give more support to education through the budget process.Senator Teahjay said even though education is tied to the security of the state, very little attention, only lip-service, has been given to the sector from the government, insisting that such neglect must be corrected.The Sinoe Senator made the observation recently when the newly appointed Minister of Education, George K. Werner, along with his corps of officials took office.Describing Werner’s team as “very lucky” administrators that have come to the Ministry of Education (MOE), under the watchful eyes of Senator Jewel Howard Taylor, Senator Teahjay said “we the members of the Senate Committee on Education are determined to ensure that education will have the kind of support that it needs to go beyond the lip-service it has been getting over the years.”Teahjay went on to say that the greatest threat to the security of the state is illiteracy. “If our children are not educated, they will become vulnerable. Anybody can push a few thousands of dollars around and there will be noise here” Teahjay indicated.According to him, education, health and security will be the three most important priorities of the legislature and he and his legislative colleagues are determined to ensure that the national budget reflects those major priorities.Senator Jewel Taylor had earlier challenged the government to be real to education by committing the resources needed to change what has been described as “a mess” to “the best.”Senator Taylor said it was unacceptable for the MOE to be getting just 50 percent of what it actually needs in the national budget saying, “The government must remodel the budget for MOE to address the many challenges in the sector, which is associated with the future of our young people.”Senator Teahjay meanwhile said Liberians through the Legislature have signed up to the “good and strategic plan for education” designed by Minister Werner and his team. As such, it was important that the Werner team be given more time and support to perfect the country’s education system, he declared. “What we saw as a plan from Minister Werner is a plan that we all have signed up to and whoever becomes President in 2017, should be ready to continue with this team. Minister Werner has a very good vision and we don’t want people shaking up the education authorities of this country. We want them to stay here and achieve that vision” the tough talking Sinoe County Lawmaker said.For his part, Minister Werner named the lack of continuity in the leadership at the MOE as one of the major problems facing the education system of Liberia.Under the Ellen led administration, the MOE has had four Ministers starting with Dr. Joseph D. Z. Korto, and the age-old Othello Gongar before being replaced by the departing Etmonia David Tarpeh.Each of those ministers came with his and her own plans and sometimes refused to work with what they met in operation. But Minister Werner has vowed to build on the efforts of Etmonia Tarpeh to reform the system. “Much of the mess the President spoke of is in Transition and lack of continuity and my team and I will build on the successes of the team that has just left,” Werner assured.He said the schools are under attack in the areas of poverty, theft or corruption, conflicts (including arms conflict) and most recently the Ebola crisis.On theft or corruption, Minister Werner said “When text books intended for students are diverted for different use; when teachers are exchanging grades for sex; when young girls are dropping out of schools after being impregnated by their teachers, these are tantamount to stealing from the future of the country.”Much to the appreciation of the audience, Minister Werner took up time to talk about the quality of teachers in the Liberian school system and the need for better pay to make the sector more professional.“We cannot allow a high school graduate to teach a high school student” Mr. Werner said, in reference to a situation that is very prevalent in the system.It was time for the government to invest in Education and demand results, he stressed. According to him, the Ministry will work with the Legislature to ensure that those reforms take root. “George Werner might just be relatively unknown, but he has some very good and interesting ideas and he looks determined to make the education system work well,” a keen observer at the program told the Daily Observer.In the words of Senator Taylor, the government must now show “deeds not words” in its professed support to education, which will be crucial to any success that will be realized by the new team of Education bureaucrats.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgAs Guyana awaits the Guyana Elections Commission’s (GECOM) readiness for General and Regional Elections, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has called for international presence during this period to scrutinise activities surrounding the polls.He stressed on Thursday during a press conference that the presence of international observers is key to ensuring credible elections. It was explained that in the past, the United Nations was requested by GECOM to oversee the process but their assistance was later refused. This was under the leadership of former Chairperson, Justice James Patterson. Prior to this, international officials were also stationed at the Commission to inspect the operations.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo“There are other things that are vital to the conduct of elections and credible elections. One is international presence. Before 2014, we had international staff embedded in the Commission. The APNU Commissioners and the [former] Chairman that was there, Mr Patterson, requested help from the UN. When the UN came out with a report saying no House-to-House Registration, they refused the help,” the Opposition Leader insisted.He further stated that the international community can be deployed immediately to assess the situation and in some instances, they are just waiting on a call to do so. During a meeting some time ago with the UN, it was reestablished that their offer still exists.“I’m sure that the international community is just waiting for the request. But immediately it could start. When I met with the international community a few months back, particularly in relation to the UN, I asked is that offer still on the table? They said yes, the offer is on the table. We’re ready to move,” the former Head of State informed.Meanwhile, the Caribbean Community (Caricom) and other bilateral donors gestured in a similar fashion. In recent time, the Opposition has met with both the diplomatic community and GECOM officials.GECOM engagementA meeting was convened with the elections body this week to encourage discussions on preparations for the polls. Jagdeo debunked statements which were made by Government Commissioner, Vincent Alexander after the meeting, stating that the possibility of elections is not likely this year.He clarified that the Chairperson, Justice Claudette Singh, gave her assurance of facilitating the polling process before the end of this year.“I thought it was the decent thing to do, not to report exactly on the content on the meeting but allow the Chairperson and GECOM to report as to what took place at that meeting. I often make the same mistake, that is, I count on the decency of people who have an agenda; that they would come out and report accurately about the meeting,” Jagdeo said.He further added, “Vincent Alexander, a Commissioner who was present at the meeting, came out and said no room for elections this year. The Chairperson in summing up said…‘We are working towards elections before the end of the year’. Not a single objection was raised at that point in time”.During the meeting, the decision to merge the existing database with the new registration data was not accepted, with the Opposition arguing that it would contaminate the list with duplicate names. This has been reiterated several times, owing to the impact it would have in facilitating a credible electoral process.Additionally, the Opposition Leader lobbied for Claims and Objections to commence, which would allow new registrants to be added to the list in a shorter period of time. He insisted that the data obtained during the ceased House-to-House Registration was unscrutinised, which questions the accuracy and credibility.Jagdeo repeated, “GECOM has put together a schedule based on the urging of their Commissioners to take three months to do this merger so that we would start Claims and Objections, which can start immediately…I asked the Commission’s members ‘Are you prepared to put your neck on the block for the 3400 enumerators that they did not do anything illegal?’ because we have cases where we believe you had illegal registration”.He added, “You only need to get new registrants added to the list. That could be done through Claims and Objections which can start immediately and it’s a more transparent process. With us doing that, we can be ready for elections long before the end of the year.”Officials of the Government are scheduled to meet with the elections secretariat today. According to Jagdeo, it is likely that the delaying tactics will continue despite assurances to support early elections.“I heard that the APNU (A Partnership for National Unity) nominated Commissioners said [to GECOM] that you should meet with APNU too. APNU never requested a meeting. I had requested a meeting with the Commission several weeks ago. It just happened that it was scheduled only now…In spite of those signals, they will go tomorrow (Friday) and try to delay the timelines for elections once again.”last_img read more

first_imgLAS VEGAS – Unwieldy contract be damned. Bad back? No problem. Kobe Bryant isn’t thinking about any of the negatives attached to a trade for Nets point guard Jason Kidd. “This team is young and if you have the opportunity to bring a player like Jason Kidd in, that’s something you definitely, definitely have to look at,” Bryant said Saturday before the West All-Star team practiced at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. “I hear all the talks going on. I don’t know the seriousness of it, or the possibility of it, but it’s still exciting. “Although politics and government are not our beat, it sure would be nice to see a plan, completely unrelated to basketball to deal with issues for the people of New Orleans that haven’t been dealt with. “We want to be good citizens, but we’d like to see something that takes care of the displaced people. That place hasn’t really made a lot of progress because it really is not going to be that much fun to be there if progress hasn’t been made.” Kevin Garnett gets a lot of the same questions. A few years ago, it was, “When are the Timberwolves going to get past the first round of the playoffs?” Then, after the Wolves made it to the Western Conference Finals in 2004, it became, “When are you going to win a championship?” But the questions have turned gloomier now that Minnesota has missed the playoffs for two consecutive years. More like, “Can you win in Minnesota?” or “Do you need to win a championship to cement your legacy?” Garnett plays it cool for the most part, but it’s obvious the team’s struggles are starting to get to him. “If something is coming down the pipe, we’ll definitely talk about it.” NBA Commissioner David Stern had some pointed words for politicians in New Orleans – the site of next year’s All Star game – saying the NBA was committed to the Hornets, but disappointed in the city’s slow recovery from Hurricane Katrina. center_img “I’m pretty sure, until you win a championship, that’s going to be the next question,” Garnett said. “It’s like, when you’re single, people ask, when are you going to get a girlfriend. Then when you get a girlfriend, they ask when you’re going to get married. After you get married, they ask when you’re going to have kids.” So one has to ask, “Can you get it done in Minnesota?” “We’ll see,” he said, adding a wink. Plenty of NBA players draw large crowds of international media. Dirk Nowitzki draws a pack of German reporters. Yao Ming has a small army of Chinese media following him. But the Lakers’ Bryant, who will start at point guard for the West in today’s All-Star game, seems to be a hit all over the world. At Saturday’s media session alone, reporters from China, Guatemala, India and Israel asked Bryant to say hello to fans back home in their countries. “I’ve said hi in Spanish, (Hebrew), German, Chinese. I don’t think I’ve done Polish yet,” he said. (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

first_img“We need to start working on a glorious new era,” said Perez. “That is why we welcome back Zinedine Zidane.”Some might have expected a bounce but nobody blamed the coach when performances continued to drag and the gap behind Barcelona, rather than narrowing, widened.Zidane took over a team with nothing to play for and a squad he knew was in need of reform. He knew because he had left it nine months earlier, just before it was broken.There was no quick fix. In his 11 games at the end of last season, Madrid won five, the only promise of progress the words Zidane kept repeating. “Things will change, for sure,” he said.Zidane denied it but they were seen as trials, every line-up scanned for clues as to who would survive the summer.Real Madrid’s coach Zinedine Zidane took over a team with nothing to play for and a squad he knew was in need of reform © AFP/File / Christof STACHEYet in some ways, none of it mattered and the results, not to mention attendances at the Santiago Bernabeu, said as much. “The best thing for us is that it’s over,” said Zidane, after the season ended in defeat.And now it begins again, the season, and Zidane’s second era as coach.Many wondered why he came back, risking everything after the perfection of three Champions League titles out of three.The assumption was he returned to a stronger hand, able to make demands the club were ready to meet and with the backing to rebuild in the way he had always wanted.He might have been encouraged too, when Eder Militao, Ferland Mendy, Luka Jovic, Rodrygo and Eden Hazard all signed for a total close to 300 million euros.Hazard was the headline act, a throw-back to a previous era that Zidane knew well, when the world’s most glamorous players seemed to walk through the doors every year.“I’m not a galactico, not yet, but I hope I will be one day,” said Hazard when he joined.– Bale stalemate –But Madrid’s pockets are not as deep as they once were and sales were also needed, by the club and their coach.Zidane showed no inclination to make soothe and use Gareth Bale, instead urging the Welshman to make a move to China.Zidane is keen to offload Gareth Bale but the Welshman appears to be staying at Real Madrid © AFP/File / ANDREW CABALLERO-REYNOLDS“It is very close,” Zidane said. “We hope he leaves soon, it would be best for everyone.”Bale’s agent told AFP Zidane was a “disgrace” and if the Frenchman had hoped to push the deal over the line, he would be disappointed as Madrid changed their mind over the fee.James Rodriguez is also yet to leave and there were others that proved more difficult to bring in such as Paul Pogba and even Neymar.In other areas, Zidane has resisted change, backing experience over youth even if many believed experience last season had turned into apathy.Marcelo, Casemiro and Keylor Navas have stayed while Marcos Llorente was allowed to join Atletico Madrid and Sergio Reguilon and Dani Ceballos were both sent out on loan.For all the talk of upheaval, Madrid’s line-up against Celta Vigo on Saturday is likely to have a distinctly familiar feel.Yet there could be a new formation, with a 3-5-2 tried after some underwhelming showings in pre-season, allowing Marcelo and Dani Carvajal greater freedom as wing-backs and Hazard to play centrally behind Karim Benzema.And a shift in focus. Madrid have won La Liga only once in the last seven years, their failures in Spain excused only by unprecedented success in Europe.“For us next year, the league must be our number one priority,” Zidane said in April.In that sense, Madrid might profit if Barcelona aim their focus at the Champions League. But the Catalans and Atletico Madrid have both strengthened and look ready to challenge again.“La Liga is the longest competition, it’s the one that cannot be missed,” Zidane said. “I’m going to drill that in the heads of my players.” His players. Now they have to deliver.0Shares0000(Visited 29 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Eden Hazard joined Real Madrid from Chelsea in July © AFP/File / Christof STACHEMADRID, Spain, Aug 14 – Zinedine Zidane returned to save Real Madrid and the time has come for results.In a packed-out press conference under the Santiago Bernabeu in March, the club’s president Florentino Perez delivered the grandest of re-introductions.last_img read more

first_imgA panel of former GAA players have all tipped Donegal to take Mayo and claim their second All-Ireland senior title.However Donegal legends Chalrie Mulgrew, Manus Boyle as well as Laois star Colm Parkinson have all warned against complacency in the days leading up to the big game. The trio gave heir opinions at a GAA preview night held in St Eunan’s Clubhouse in Letterkenny on Friday evening.A bumper crowd turned up for the event which was hosted by well-known local Donegal Democrat/People’s Press deputy editor Ciaran O’Donnell.The night covered a number of topics with questions taken from the floor.All three panelists said they felt particularly sorry for ousted Gaoth Dobhair player Kevin Cassidy. Charlie Mulgrew received a huge round of applause when he said he could think of no better player to hopefully raise the Sam Maguire Cup than captain Michael Murphy.The issue of the homecoming would still appear to be a bit of a sticky subject.When the issue was touched on, both Parkinson and Boyle fell backwards off their chairs!There was an apology send by RTE commentator Joe Brolly who was due to be a panelist but could not make after his son was rushed to hospital.The St Eunan’s club wished Brolly’s son a speedy recovery.  GAA TRIO TIP DONEGAL BUT WARN ABOUT COMPLACENCY was last modified: September 16th, 2012 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:CHARLIE MULGREWColm ParkinsonletterkennyManus BoyleSt Eunanslast_img read more

first_imgRose (Mary Laverty on Left) and Margaret (Kathleen McGowan) with Tom’s false teeth during rehearsals.THE Butt Drama Circle, Ballybofey, presents MJ Ginnelly’s hilarious play, A Wake in the West, for four nights next week.Directed by Eddie Flanagan, it is set in a small fishing village in the west in the 1970s and tells the story of the life and death of Tom Healy.A ‘character’, he was fond of the drink and, in the end, it was probably his demise. The production includes a ‘real’ corpse Tom who played by Mark Mason.Tom has left some unusual funeral instructions with the local doctor (Cronan Scanlon). However, his last wishes do not sit well with his daughter Mary (Bridie Faulkner) and his son Martin (Pauric Duffy), who has just returned from America.Martin’s return is eagerly awaited by neighbour Joan (Zara Holmes) who has always had a grá for him.One of the funniest scenes in the play is when 81-year-old Rose (Mary Laverty) calls to pay her respects. Mayhem kicks off as she tries to pry the jaws of the corpse open with a spoon and acquire the false teeth that she’s always admired.The Parish Priest (Ken Lillis) is joined at the wake by Tom’s friends and neighbours who add to the general chaos.Barney (Eddie Mulligan), Tom’s life-long friend and drinking buddy, offers to help carry out his last wishes and, as everyone knows, the village drunk isn’t the ideal man for the job.Barney’s long-suffering wife Margaret (Kathleen McGowan) has a lot to put up with and admits that she married the wrong ‘aholic’ – the alcoholic instead of the workaholicGreat character performances, plenty of drink, quick witted humour, an exorcism and a twist at the end, will leave the audience with plenty of laughs.Opens at the Balor Theatre on Wednesday, June 24, and runs to Saturday night.Tom was well liked and there’s a ‘big connection’ of the Healys, so get along to the Balor early, call 074 9131840 for bookings or log on to www.balortheatre.comNO BUTTS – THE BALOR IS PLACE TO BE FOR HILARIOUS NEW PLAY was last modified: June 16th, 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:BALOR THEATREButt TheatreCronan ScanlondonegalWake in the Westlast_img read more
