Tetra Tech Donates Motorcycles to Nimba County

first_imgAs part of efforts to bringing lasting peace to Liberia, the United States’ States Department-funded Tetra Tech DPK Mitigating Land Dispute Program, has donated over 40 motorbikes and some assorted officers materials as logistical support to the Government of Liberia. The items are valued at over half a million United States dollars.According to the Chief of Team of Tetra Tech DPK, Dr. Alfred Fofie, the donated items will enable law enforcement officers working in Nimba to effectively do their jobs.Dr. Fofie added that for law enforcement officers to effectively do their works they needed to be empowered so as to respond to security threat quickly, that was the reason they provided  the items mainly to law enforcement officers of Liberian National Police (LNP), Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN), National Security Agency (NSA) and Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).The items donated on 19th May 2014 included, motorbikes, computers, printers, photocopiers, solar panels, investigative kits ( for forensic investigation), plastic chairs, typewriters and among others.The total of 10 crime scene investigative kits (for forensic investigation) were donated; two to the LNP Central Office in Monrovia, two to the Police Academy, two to the Regional Hub in Gbarnga and balance four will be divided among the two parlor counties, Lofa and Nimba.Since 2012, the Tetra Tech DPK has been implementing a program called Mitigating Land Dispute in Liberia/MLDL with its parlor phases presently focusing on Nimba and Lofa Counties.In the MLDL program, Tetra Tech organized the county Security Council, the district security council and the community forum in both Nimba and Lofa counties.The county security council, which is the highest body in the county, is headed by the superintendent and co-chair by the LNP county commander, the district security council is also headed by a district commissioner, which the community forum is headed by the a civilian and comprises of members of the community.The community forum, which is the civilian body upon hearing any threat or dispute, will intervene and discuss it among themselves. If it cannot be settled, it will pass it over to the district security council most of its members are security and if it cannot still be settled at that level, it is then reported to the county security council. If this level can’t resolve the matter, it is passed over to the national thereby making at a national crises, needling a national response.Using the concept of community –oriented policing, MLDL continued to work to improve the relationship between police institution and the local population, and to steadily build security forces’ confidence in these counties.“MLDL supported local police efforts by strengthening investigative capacities and helping officers integrate into the local environment through community policing,” said Thomas Suah, Components 1&2 leader.Since the establishment of these bodies, many conflicts/disputes have been settled in Nimba County, including the long-standing land dispute between the Yeaten and the Nutuah families of Mahnplay, the historic land between the citizens of Yehbo and Mongbien.The easing of the crisis between citizens of Teahplay and two communities in Nimkwea over the killing of their son by a citizen from Teahplay in November last year as well as the UNICEF student crisis in Ganta in September 2012 were among some of the conflicts settled.Some of the distributed items including the solar panels, computer, other office materials, and also motorbikes will also be given to the community forums as part of the support to strengthen their activities.Nimba Supt. Fong Zuagele praised Tetra Tech DPK MLDL program and the US Department of States for their supports.“We are also grateful to the implementing partners of the US State Department the Tetra Tech DPK for the job well done,” he said.“You have facilitated the meetings of the Security Council that I chair, the District Security Council and the list go on and on,” he added.Meanwhile, 25 motorcycles would be left in Nimba while 15 will be delivered to Lofa along with other items.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Bus service to Northern Lights College, hospital among approved transit changes

first_imgThe City and B.C. Transit recently completed a transit review to make the system in Fort St. John more efficient, and fix issues like removing the stop from NLC to add one to the hospital. Draft recommendations were also taken to public open houses for further input. The recommendations in the review were then tested for feasibility, and all of the short term changes passed the test. Transit will be rerouted from areas with low demand to those with higher, which won’t have an impact on cost as route times and distances have been rearranged instead of increased. B.C. Transit Senior Transit Planner Matthew Boyd says the public response to the changes have been seen favourably.Transit will now start making changes to the Riders Guide and its website, and it’s expected the changes, including new bus stops, will be in place by September.- Advertisement -There are also a number of medium and long-term suggested changes, like extending service later at night and on Sundays, and to other areas like the airport, which will be brought back to City Council when it considers its next budget.last_img read more

France into last 16 as Mbappe makes history

first_img0Shares0000Kylian Mbappe became France’s youngest ever World Cup goalscorer to send his team into the last 16© AFP JORGE GUERREROYEKATERINBURG, Russia, June 21 – Teenager Kylian Mbappe became France’s youngest World Cup goalscorer as they beat Peru 1-0 on Thursday to reach the last 16 and condemn the South Americans to an early exit.France, one of the pre-tournament favourites, join Uruguay and hosts Russia in the knockout rounds with one group game to go. Paris Saint-Germain forward Mbappe — aged 19 years and 183 days — underlined his rich talent and claimed his place in the French record books when he poked home in the first half.Didier Deschamps’ side face Denmark on Tuesday with top spot in Group C up for grabs but progression to the next stage assured.In contrast, Peru face Australia with their fate sealed and just pride to play for in front of their passionate and large following that has decamped to Russia.Some Peru fans were in tears even before kick-off — a generation of Peruvians have never known their country in the World Cup before.The South Americans’ last appearance was in 1982 and they made this like a home game, ensuring their red and white dominated the Yekaterinburg Arena.That included the two enormous temporary stands that stretch high above both ends, exposed to the elements, where Peru fans bobbed and bounced to keep warm.Paul Pogba, the Manchester United midfielder who a few days ago called himself “the most criticised player in the world”, flashed a drive wide and defender Raphael Varane did likewise from a header.With 15 minutes gone, Pogba and France began to impose themselves.Antoine Griezmann drove straight at goalkeeper Pedro Gallese after Olivier Giroud — starting in place of Ousmane Dembele — set up the Atletico Madrid forward.Deschamps had clearly told his side, disappointing in beating Australia 2-1 in their opener, to go long and use Giroud’s physicality.Peru’s best outlet in the first half was rampaging full-back Luis Advincula, who had the beating of defender Lucas Hernandez down France’s left flank.Peru, unfortunate to lose 1-0 to Denmark in their first game, took until the half-hour to have their first serious chance, with recalled skipper Paolo Guerrero stinging the legs of Hugo Lloris.France captain Lloris, making his 100th appearance for his country, was a bystander for long periods.On 34 minutes France went in front. Pogba cleverly played in Giroud, his shot took a deflection and looped over Gallese, allowing Mbappe to stab into an open net.New-found confidence ran through the French and Hernandez should have made it 2-0 just before the break.As in the first half, Peru made the better start to the second and midfielder Pedro Aquino arrowed a long-distance rocket onto Lloris’s upright.But for all their possession, Peru — in their distinctive white kit with red sash — caused the French defence few problems.Barcelona centre-back Samuel Umtiti was imperious alongside Real Madrid’s Varane.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

A Seder for the ages

first_imgRESEDA – For Beverly Rubin, there’s no better way to observe Passover than to raise a wine glass and break the unleavened bread known as matzo with hundreds of her peers. “That’s what makes this so wonderful,” said the 76-year-old woman, who participated in the second night of a community Passover Seder on Thursday as part of an annual tradition at the Jewish Home for the Aging in Reseda. Rubin, surrounded by her husband, son, grandchildren and more than 350 people, sang and prayed and shared in the ritual meal that symbolizes the ancient Hebrews’ flight from slavery in Egypt to freedom in the promised land. Each year, the Seder service holds particular meaning for the Jewish home because it was founded on Passover in 1912. “I’ve invited friends to this Seder, and I tell them, you’ll never sit at another Seder like this one,” Linn said. May agreed. “It’s not about having age,” she said. “It’s about having time.” With his grandparents Saul and Beverly Rubin watching, and his father Michael Rubin at his side, 10-year-old Jesse took part in the ceremonial feast, which features among its symbolic foods boiled eggs, to represent a triumph of life over death; parsley for springtime; and matzo representing the lack of time for the bread to rise in the Israelites’ quick flight. “I really like that it gives everyone a chance to be here,” Jesse said. “Not every Jewish family gets to have a Seder, and I feel very happy that my grandparents get to experience this.” susan.abram@dailynews.com (818) 713-3664160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Of the 500 residents there, the average age is 92. And almost 40 of the residents are 100 years old or more. “Many of our residents have outlived their family. We want them to feel important, and we invite the community to help them know what we’re about,” Gordon said. “We have a saying here: We do not allow the residents to say they came here to die. We tell them, you came here to live.” Jessica Enman, 25, came to the Seder to be with her father Arnold Enman, who has been ill. “It’s a great opportunity to see the older generation of Jews express their cultures in one community,” she said of the diversity among the residents. “It’s interesting to see them all together for this untraditional Seder.” Lillie Ginsberg, 99, who sat with her friends Suzanne May, 88, and Norma Linn, 85, said she’d like to invert the numbers in her age to 66, the way she feels. last_img read more

McLOONE: ‘WE WON’T SIT BACK AND ENJOY DONEGAL SUCCESS FOR 10 YEARS’

first_imgDONEGAL All-Ireland winner Leo McLoone says he and his team-mates won’t reflect on their careers until they’re over.He was speaking ahead of this Sunday’s Ulster sem-final clash with Down at Breffni Park (throw-in 2pm)..“I think the time to sit back and enjoy it might be in 10 or 15 years time when it’s all over. We will look back and reflect at how good things were,” he said. “But at the minute it was just kind of straight back into this year, there wasn’t much time to reflect on it. I think we drew the line in January that last year was over and the focus was now May 26 (the match against Tyrone) and thankfully we won and hopefully will keep it going now again.“Down had a great win in Celtic Park against Derry, it’s a very hard place to go and get a win, but we know how good they are. They’ve six very good forwards who take a lot of watching. Even from last year’s game, it was a lot tighter than the score-line reflected. I think we definitely know how good they are.”Karl Lacey is definitely out of the game after he underwent surgery on a knee cartilage injury two weeks ago.“He didn’t train with the team at all last week, so I don’t think there’s any hope, sadly,” said Leo. “Jim will have to look into the strength in depth of the squad and hopefully that the men in there can come on and do as good a job.”McLoone says Jim McGuinness has had a huge influence on him personally and the rest of the squad.“Jim was always someone we looked up to around my age group. He would have been playing for Donegal when I was a boy and we always looked up to him. For a while it was strange to be playing with him, but now he’s back in management.“There are four of us on the Donegal panel from Glenties (Anthony Thompson, Marty Boyle and Dermot Molloy are the others) and we always had great admiration for Jim,” he added.Donegal play Down in the Ulster GAA Football Championship semi-final on Sunday, June 23 at Kingspan Breffni Park, Cavan. www.gaa.ieMcLOONE: ‘WE WON’T SIT BACK AND ENJOY DONEGAL SUCCESS FOR 10 YEARS’ was last modified: June 19th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:McLOONE: ‘WE WON’T SIT BACK AND ENJOY DONEGAL SUCCESS FOR 10 YEARS’last_img read more
