Foreign Exchange Rate Skyrockets in Monrovia Again

first_imgFor the fourth time in less than two months, the foreign exchange rate against the weak Liberian dollar has skyrocketed again.Currently, one United States Dollar is being exchanged for L$87 to L$ 88 in several parts of Monrovia.During the last foreign exchange hike around the holiday season, the Liberian Government was able to intervene swiftly; a development that led to an immediate drop in the exchange rate between both currencies, which are legal tenders in Liberia.As a result of the recent hike in the rate, commercial drivers and other public service transport providers are charging commuters and business people from Red-light Market, Paynesville to central Monrovia L$80 to L$90. The latter amount is L$30 more than the usual fare for that distance.Instead of the approved Ministry of Commerce and Industry’s price of L$60 from Red-light Market in Paynesville and L$50 from ELWA junction, outside Monrovia commercial drivers continue to remain stubborn and defiant.Due to the current hike in transport fare of essential commodities on the Liberian market, commuters and business people have sounded an urgent call on the Liberian Government to take practical steps in order to address the situation.Owing also to the escalation of transportation prices many Liberians are seen stranded at various street corners.Business people from Central Monrovia’s general markets, who went to the Red-light Market over the weekend to buy commodities from rural Liberia, were astonished to learn of the huge hike in most of the commodities.Many of Central Monrovia’s business people paraded the densely populated Red-light Market and were left no other option but to buy the locally produced commodities at inflated prices.Commodities that had their prices increased included rice, cassava, cucumbers, corn, peanuts, tomatoes, cabbage, potatoes, cassava greens among others.Several consumers expressed concern over the situation and sounded an urgent appeal to the Ministries of Commerce and Industry and Transport to take strict measures against some of the exploitative transport service providers.One commuter from Paynesville told the Daily Observer that if swift action was not instituted by the Liberian government on the current foreign exchange situation, public outcry might degenerate into street protest.Darlington B. Dolo, 48, said the current hardship being encountered at the hands of commercial drivers could be attributed to the silence being exhibited by the Liberian Government.Businesswoman Sarah Kolliego, 38, said she was running out of business due to the current hike in commodities on the Liberian market.“I was shocked to see how much the prices of locally produced commodities have been ramped up beyond the reach of ordinary Liberians,” Madam Kolliego said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Rodney Marsh pinpoints the key to Manchester City’s title hopes

first_imgVincent Kompany holds the key to Manchester City’s title hopes, according to Rodney Marsh.The Belgian defender was not at his best last season as City failed to retain their Premier League crown and Marsh says it is vital for his former club that their captain returns to top form this term.Speaking ahead of the club’s opening Premier League game of the season against West Brom on Monday night, the former striker said: “The most important thing for me all season is Vincent Kompany.“Vincent Kompany, by his standards, was very ordinary last year. He needs to be big against West Brom and all season for Man City.”City’s preparations for the new campaign have not gone smoothly, with Manuel Pellegrini’s side conceding four goals against Stuttgart and Real Madrid.Marsh admits it has not been an ideal summer for City, but he reckons they will be raring to go at the Hawthorns with Sergio Aguero back fit following his exploits at the Copa America.“I’ve seen every Man City pre-season game and, to be honest, it has been nothing short of a catastrophe,” he said.“Aguero has not played, Kompany has played bit parts, Demichelis has played very, very few, Zabalata and Toure the same. It has been one after the other. Added to the fact Fabian Delph has picked up a thigh injury, it has been an incredibly poor pre-season.“Having said all that, Aguero is now back and I’m expecting them to come out of the blocks really, really firing.”last_img read more

Explosion blamed on captain’s order

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Investigators could not determine what sparked the explosion but said Kavouras’ order was a “breach of normal safe practices for a tank ship and defies explanation or excuse.” Faulty electrical wiring could not be ruled out. NORFOLK, Va. – An explosion that destroyed a tanker and killed 21 seamen two years ago was caused by the captain’s “stunningly” unsafe order to his crew to open vapor-filled cargo tanks for cleaning, the Coast Guard said in a report Tuesday. Opening the hatches on 22 empty tanks caused the highly flammable vapors to escape onto the deck, where the crew of the Bow Mariner was working, according to the report. A spark ignited the mixture of air and vapors from a gasoline additive, the investigators said. The investigation also found that Capt. Efstratios Kavouras abandoned ship without sending a distress call or trying to save his crew, contributing to the high death toll. The 570-foot Bow Mariner, laden with more than 3.4 million gallons of ethanol, fuel oil and diesel oil, sank about 50 miles off the Virginia coast on Feb. 28, 2004. Twenty-one of the 27 crew members died. Kavouras was among the 18 whose bodies were never found. last_img read more

NINE MAN HARPS LEFT ‘HOOPY’ AFTER VICTORY OVER ROVERS

first_imgNine man Finn Harps put in a battling display to grab all three points against Shamrock Rovers B side at Tallaght this afternoon.Both sides lost players in the 26th minute when Mickey Funston and Ryan Doolin became involved in an off-the-ball incident and were shown red cards.Harps had been leading from as early as the tenth minute when a Funston corner was played short for Josh Mailey who squared to Keith Cowan who found the net.

From then on Harps tried to batton down the hatches and they were helped by a confident display by ‘keeper Wynn.The big Galway man puled off a superb save in the 72nd minute to prevent a Zack Watson goal-bound effort.Harps manager Ollie Organ found himself in the stands when he was given his marching orders for remonstrating with the ref.Harps managed to hold on and will be delighted to record their second victory at Tallaght stadium this season. NINE MAN HARPS LEFT ‘HOOPY’ AFTER VICTORY OVER ROVERS was last modified: July 6th, 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:finn harpsshamrock roverslast_img read more

‘Daniel Sturridge would get in any team based on his display against PSG’

first_img 2 Former Liverpool star Barnes has been impressed by his attitude and believes, even though he may not be first choice, he can still play a role for the Reds.“Daniel showed a great attitude, work rate and effort – it was a great performance from him,” Barnes told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“But regardless of how he played last night, when push comes to shove is he going to get in front of Firmino? Sturridge was replaced by Firmino on 72 minutes against PSG, with the Brazilian later scoring a stoppage-time winner 2 Sturridge busts out his trademark celebration after scoring against PSG Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge ‘would get in any team’ based on his performance in Tuesday night’s Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain, according to John Barnes.However, the Reds legend believes the striker has a future in the Reds team if he keeps showing the same desire whenever he gets an opportunity to play.Sturridge has been relegated to a back-up striker in recent seasons due to his fitness struggles and the arrivals of now first-choice trio Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.The 29-year-old was heavily linked with a move away from Anfield in the summer, having spent the second-half of last season on loan at West Brom.But the forward enjoyed a resurgence during Liverpool’s pre-season, scoring six goals to convince manager Jurgen Klopp to keep him at the club – and it has proven a good decision already.Sturridge has two goals from five appearances this season, and marked his first start of the campaign with a header to set to Reds on their way to a stunning 3-2 win over PSG. “I don’t think so necessarily, which is a shame. I really feel the front three for Liverpool moving forward will continue to be Salah, Mane and Firmino.“Daniel is a great player and if he continues to show the attitude he did last night, he would get in anybody’s team.“Will Daniel then get discouraged because he’s not playing every week? I don’t know, but the attitude he showed last night, if he keeps that up, he’ll be ok.”Listen back to John Barnes on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL above!last_img read more
