AFP PHOTO / ALEXANDER NEMENOVMalaysia’s sports minister has urged fans not to boo Olympic swimming champion Joseph Schooling at the Southeast Asian Games, after the Singaporean sparked a furor by vowing to “teach (Malaysians) a thing or two”.Schooling, who won Singapore’s first gold medal at last year’s Rio Olympics, caused controversy with his remarks last week, before insisting he meant no offence and that his comments were taken out of context.ADVERTISEMENT Marcosian mode: Duterte threatens to arrest water execs ‘one night’ 2 nabbed in Bicol drug stings Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said fans shouldn’t give Schooling a rough ride at the event from August 19-30 — and told them to remember that the swimmer’s mother is Malaysian.“No booing, no jeering,” he was quoted as saying in the New Straits Times newspaper Friday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

Pay Day for 3,000 Students Today
More than 3,000 teen students beginning today are expected to be paid L$4,100 each as their ‘endurable wage’ for President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s 5-day back-to-school -clean-up initiative, which began on last Monday. It ended last Friday.The virtually youthful workers will be paid through mobile money, and payment might possibly end on Wednesday, February 4.The Project Coordinator of the President’s Back-to-School Clean-up initiative, Samuel K. Mappy, IV, told the Daily Observer in an exclusive interview last Thursday that the Youth and Sports Minister, Lenn Eugene Nagbe, is exerting every effort to ensure that all the recruited students are compensated latest by Wednesday.According to Mr. Mappy, Minister Nagbe and his lieutenants have begun an on-the-spot verification of cell numbers of the students alongside the mobile money agents at the five zones comprising 38 work locations.“Minister Nagbe and his team were at the Bushrod Island; Deputy Youth Minister Saah N’tow went to Sinkor-Tubman Boulevard,” Mr. Mappy noted. He added: “The Comptroller of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Hilary Sackie, was in Central Monrovia and the Assistant Minister for Technical and Vocational Education, Boikai Jaleiba, was on Somalia Drive.”Mr. Mappy is also the National Coordinator for the Cadet Program at the Youth and Sports Ministry.When contacted the Director for Press and Public Affairs at the Youth and Sports Ministry, M. MaCaulay Paykue, said they are optimistic that this year’s Back-to-School pay day will be free of inadvertent omission of some students’ names on the pay roll.Mr. Paykue indicated that the Minister and some of his deputies and assistant ministers would continue their on-the-spot verification for the process to begin smoothly and end happily.The campaign is intended to motivate the students as well as help parents and guardians prepare their children and wards for the reopening of school as the Ebola crisis winds down.The initiative was organized and implemented by the Government of Liberia through the Ministry of Youth and Sports.The students were recruited week before last from 38 communities through a lottery (a secret ballot of either a blank paper or a paper with the inscription ‘job’). The fixed ages of the work-to-study students are between 15 and 21 years and they are 6th to 12th graders.According to the recruitment method, 48% of those recruited are boys, 47% girls and 5% disabled. Each center recruited 78 students.The recruitment was divided into five zones: Bushrod Island, Somalia Drive, Tubman Boulevard, Paynesville and Central Monrovia.Each zone has at least eight centers (schools), a supervisor, monitor and at most two registrars.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
GPHC main pharmacy, records department to be relocated
The Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) will be receiving a sum of $524.6 million from the 2019 Budget; most of which will go towards several projects which will commence in the new year.One of the main projects high on the sector’s agenda is the construction of a four-storey building within the Hospital’s complex which will house the Hospital’s main pharmacy and the medical records department.According to Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence in her 2019 Budget Debate presentation, “this will allow the Corporation to commence and roll out the Health Management Information Systems (GHIS) across the Hospital.”The GHIS which is currently being piloted at the East La Penitence Health Centre is the Government’s first step towards creating paperless health facilities while capturing, storing, managing or transmitting health information and data of personsThe Georgetown Public Hospitalwithin the health system.Among other items on the Hospital’s budgetary agenda is the completion and furnishing of the Waterloo Street staff quarters. This will provide a better living arrangement for GHPC staff needing to stay at the facility.Also, slated is the rehabilitation and extension of the pre-and-post-natal maternity wards (old building) and the upgrade and transformation of the Mental Health Clinic at the GPHC into a mental health ward.The Minister is quoted by the Public Information Department as saying there will be the construction of a trauma centre which will facilitate the upgrade of the existing Accident and Emergency Unit. The Government is currently in discussions with development partners to facilitate this aspect. This new trauma centre will make a way for an increase in the number of in-patient ward space, with the bed capacity at the GPHC increasing from 483 to 1000; more outpatient clinic space and an increase in the number of theatres from five to 12, including two separate theatres for Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

MISSING HAWK STILL FREE ON A WING AND A PRAYER!
The falconer who has lost one of his most precious birds has said he hopes the bird will closer to homes as time passes.Well-known Glenties man Pedro Soltani sent out an SOS after his Harris Hawk escaped from its aviary yesterday morning.Despite many reported sightings of the bird, Pedro has yet to be reunited with the rare bird. “I have received a lot of reports and people have been very good with their information.“The problem is that some people may have seen it but others may be getting him mixed up with wild birds of prey such as buzzards which are quite common,” he said.The bird, which is a native of South America, has distinctive leather straps on its legs.Pedro, who owns a total of 29 different birds of prey, says the bird will fend for itself. “Although it was reared in captivity, it will hunt for itself. It will eat crows, rabbits and other things such as mice and frogs.“I am hoping that as the days goes by it will come closer to homes and someone can let me know and we can recapture it,” he said.Anybody who thinks they have seen the bird can contact Pedro on 087 7668379.

‘MOVING CIVIL SERVANTS TO BUNCRANA IS INHUMAN’ SAYS UNION BOSS
LOWER-PAID staff in the Civil Service who being forced to move offices in Co Donegal is wrong and inhuman, a union president has said.Denis Walshe, outgoing president of the CPSU, was speaking about an ongoing dispute in the Department of Agriculture in Raphoe.Bosses want to move them to new offices in Letterkenny and Buncrana. But Mr Walshe said the civil servants were being asked to move 45km in a geographical area where there was no public transport.“One member does not have access to a car and they want him to move. Where is the humanity in all of this?”He said the redeployment could cost members €90 a week or more in transport costs.General Secretary Eoin Ronayne said some members had no personal transport, but even if they did, additional petrol could cost €100 per week. He said that was an unsustainable and unacceptable burden for a clerical officer on between €450 and €500 a week.The union’s general secretary accused public service management of failing to fully avail of alternatives to redeployment.The same union also passed a motion supporting staff to finish one day per week at 3.30pm after the removal of “bank time” from their work conditions.Comments are welcome below: ‘MOVING CIVIL SERVANTS TO BUNCRANA IS INHUMAN’ SAYS UNION BOSS was last modified: April 28th, 2012 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:’MOVING CIVIL SERVANTS TO BUNCRANA IS INHUMAN’ SAYS UNION BOSSbuncranaletterkennyRaphoe

SINN FEIN BLAST REPORT ON JOHN DOWNEY OTR AFFAIR AS ‘POLITICAL’
Donegal fisherman John Downey had received letter saying he was not wanted by policeTHE Sinn Fein boss who dealt with the issue of on-the-run republicans has today slammed a report by British MPs as “political manipulation”.Gerry Kelly said the parties on the House of Commons committee who drafted the report were “political opponents” of Sinn Fein and he expected nothing less from them. And he denied the so-called ‘administrative scheme’ dealing with on-the-run suspects was a “secret”, saying his political adversaries knew about it as far back as 2001.Today’s report by a cross-party group of British MPs was compiled after Donegal fisherman John Downey had murder charges against him thrown out at the Old Bailey in London in February 2014.The case collapsed after it emerged Mr Downey – a senior Sinn Fein figure in Donegal – had received a comfort letter from the British Government saying he was not wanted by any police force.However, it later emerged that he was wanted by Scotland Yard over the 1982 Hyde Park bombings.A subsequent report by Lady Hallett said the scheme was not a secret and was not unlawful.Gerry Kelly said he is not surprised by the findings of the British MPs.He stressed that he put more trust in Lady Hallett’s previous report on the matter.Mr Kelly said: “As far as I was concerned this was a political manipulation of an issue as opposed to Lady Hallett who came in and investigated the issue.“At no time was this issue a secret. People knew all about this as far back as 2001.”SINN FEIN BLAST REPORT ON JOHN DOWNEY OTR AFFAIR AS ‘POLITICAL’ was last modified: March 24th, 2015 by John2Share 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:SINN FEIN BLAST REPORT ON JOHN DOWNEY OTR AFFAIR AS ‘POLITICAL’
