Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott missed free headers, before Shane Long slotted from close range and Jose Fonte headed in the third.

The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hans Barchue, has sounded an alarm that US$5 million for the purpose of direct District Development remains “on ice as the 2013/2014 Budget elapses.” Said amount was allotted in the National Budget for direct district development projects in the 73 electoral districts across the country.In a Daily Observer interview at the weekend, Deputy Speaker Barchue expressed concern over the delay in implementing projects associated with said amount, adding, “Liberia strongly depends on district projects in order to develop its broken infrastructure.”He disclosed that 26 projects in various counties had been identified by community dwellers, local authorities and lawmakers as projects that are ripe for implementation in their respective regions.“The Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE) under instruction of a committee of the Legislature, conducted feasibility studies in the areas of concern and identified projects to be implemented,” Rep. Barchue indicated.Since LACE completed the assessment process, Deputy Speaker Barchue declared, “Finance Ministry is yet to release the money for those projects and we are closing on this year’s budget with nothing being done to address said critical matter,” he stressed.The Grand Bassa County lawmaker expressed frustration over the slow pace of development in rural communities, noting that rural dwellers feel completely disconnected from urban areas.“The US$5 million was a pilot project introduced to make a way for other bigger interventions in the near future. The Finance Minister had assured us that the money was in a special account that has not been touched. LACE has been across the country inspecting the sites for these projects and as we speak, Finance Ministry is yet to release a single dollar for them. This act on the part of the Ministry is frustrating people like us, who are development-oriented and want rural areas to be lighted as Monrovia,” he said.“These projects range from schools, clinics and bridges to markets and farm-to-market roads that are urgently needed in the rural communities. We’re not going to take this lightly because the development of the districts is paramount to the Legislature,” Deputy Speaker Barchue indicated.As the close of this Fiscal period, June 30, approaches, Rep. Barchue pointed out, the plenary of the House is expected to invite Finance Minister Amara Konneh again to explain the status of the money.He wants serious attention placed on the development of rural communities in order to develop the entire country.He used the medium to announce several development initiatives instituted by his office in District #1, Grand Bassa County. According to him, 13 Digital Satellite Television (DSTV) set including generators and other accessories valued over US$9,000 were provided to district residents recently.“The DSTV sets were provided to the district in order to give our people the opportunity to watch the Football World Cup from their respective communities. Our people have difficulties in getting to Firestone and other places for amusement, so we have brought it to their doorsteps,” he said.However, reacting to Deputy Speaker Barchue’s claims, the Deputy Finance Minister for Budget, Mr. Sebastian Muah, confirmed that the money was on “ice” because of the present budget shortfall that the nation is experiencing.Speaking with the Daily Observer late last night, Mr. Muah further stated that because of the shortfall, the money had to be diverted to other meaningful undertakings of the government. He said the money had nothing to do with the lawmakers because the Constitution does not give them expending power. That power is the constitutional preserve of the Executive, which contains the Ministry of Finance and other expending entities of the government.Commenting on LACE’s intervention, Dep. Min Muah stated that for the last two years, that agency has not shown a single project that it has completely done with thousands of dollars that it had received from the Ministry of Finance.“Should we just be spending money when we can’t see any meaningful thing that has been done with the money? You people [journalists] need to go on a fact finding in order to verify for yourselves what I am talking about.“Another thing, for the last seven years, we have been spending money in the name of county development. Go into the counties and see the developments that are there,” Min. Muah said.He told the Observer that as Deputy Minister for the Budget, he was yet to receive any new plan from the LACE concerning any development projects to be carried out in the counties. His comments are in reference to Deputy Speaker Barchue’s, that LACE had since gone around the country and identified projects but the Ministry of Finance was yet to release money for those projects.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

So we carry everything, from surgical instruments, cataract consumables equipment, optical equipment and also what we do is that we service what we sell”.The yearly conference serves an advocacy role while helping to promote policies and standards for vision care and enabling continuing professional development opportunities for physicians, surgeons and other professionals in the field.The four-day event also serves as an opportunity for the 10 local nurses, General Medical Officers (GMOs) and other allied health workers selected to attend to upgrade and sharpen their skills.Some of the ophthalmologists are expected to perform clinical work at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation, the sole referral institution in Guyana. Issues to be addressed at the conference will include basic eyelid repairs; how diabetes affects our eyesight; glaucoma and cataract surgeries and managing refractive errors in children. Refractive errors include near-sightedness, far-sightedness and distorted vision.

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The City of Fort St. John is asking its residents for feedback on proposed changes to its animal control bylaw.The bylaw last saw changes twenty years ago, and the city says that the proposed changes will improve the safety to citizens and pets through new or reworded regulations. A public meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, September 13th at the Pomeroy Sports Centre starting at 6:00 p.m., where residents can voice their concerns. Alternatively, a link can also be found online.“Animal control is all about balancing the safety of residents and domestic animals,” said Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman. “These changes aim to adjust that balance and give our enforcement staff the regulations they need to ensure owners are responsible for their pets’ behaviour.”- Advertisement -City bylaw enforcement officers say that the majority of cases that they respond to are for dog interactions. Last year, bylaw officers received 385 dog and animal complaints, impounded 98 dogs, dealt with 271 lost, injured or deceased animals, followed up on 121 dogs at large, and investigated 53 dog attacks. These interactions can result in people or pets being frightened by an uncontrolled dog, and can sometimes lead to bites or attacks. Proposed changes to the Animal Control Bylaw include:A requirement to leash dogs when out in publicA section that ensures owners provide their pets with the basic necessities of water, food and shelterRemoving the term ‘vicious dog’ and replacing it with ‘aggressive dog’ and ‘biting dog’ to provide more clarity and greater leeway in enforcementA new section that outlines restricted animals, based on the provincial forests, lands and natural resources ministry’s Controlled Alien Species ListCouncil will review the updated bylaw at its council meeting scheduled for October 11th.

Chelsea have been without a technical director since Michael Emenalo’s resignation in November 2017, as director Marina Granovskaia has taken on the majority of his old duties since he departed the club.It is not clear at this stage exactly what responsibilities Cech will have, but he could share some of the burden in terms of recruitment and bridging the gap between the board and the manager.Cech remained coy on social media, reiterating that he will make a decision after the Europa League final in Baku.“Despite the news today as I had already said to everybody before, I’ll make a decision about my future after the last game. Now my sole focus is to win the Europa League with Arsenal,” Cech tweeted.The club have made little secret of their desire to welcome back the ‘golden generation’ which included the likes of John Terry, Frank Lampard and Cech.The goalkeeper enjoys legendary status at Stamford Bridge after 11 trophy-laden seasons with the club, including four Premier League titles and a Champions League in 2012.He could be set to work with a brand new manager – as a host of Italian clubs, including Juventus and Roma, are targeting current boss Maurizio Sarri, Sky Sports News understands.-By Sky Sports-0Shares0000(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Cech to be hired as Chelsea sporting directorLONDON, United Kingdom, May 22 – Petr Cech will return to Chelsea this summer in a new sporting director role at the club, Sky Sports News has learnt.The Arsenal goalkeeper, who turned 37 on Monday, announced he will retire from playing after next Wednesday’s Europa League final in Azerbaijan against his former – and future – employers at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea will launch one final charm offensive to lure former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri and may often David Luiz to sweeten the deal, according to reports.After spending most of the 2017-18 in disarray, head coach Antonio Conte is set to leave Stamford Bridge, with Sarri seen as the ideal man to replace him. 2 2 Former Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti has replaced Sarri at the Serie A side, but the Italian side are holding out for some form of reimbursement.Although Napoli are not set to receive any financial compensation from any potential club looking to appoint Sarri, they are reportedly holding out on the Premier league club for something to sweeten the deal.And according to SportItalia, a deal for frozen-out defender David Luiz could be the catalyst to getting the deal over the line.Although Luiz could have a future under new management at Stamford Bridge, it is unlikely the Blues are going to allow the player to hold up the deal. Maurizio Sarri has been linked with Chelsea for much of the summer already Luiz has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge under Antonio Conte Sarri is set to be offered a two-year deal with an option of a third at the Premier League side, although it is widely accepted this is his last chance to join the club.If it all falls through yet again, Laurent Blanc is another name reportedly being considered as Antonio Conte’s replacement.Luiz originally joined the west Londoners from Benfica in 2011, establishing himself as a fan favourite for his gung-ho approach to defending.After leaving the club to join Paris Saint-Germain for a world record fee in 2014, Conte brought the 31-year-old back to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2016.However, since falling out with the Italian this season, a move away has been constantly mooted – with London rivals Arsenal reportedly considering a move last January.
On Sunday last I participated in the Waterside Half Marathon in Derry. I had to do a 16mile run as part of my training so I ran a mile before the race and 2 after it to make up the 16 miles.This half marathon went well for me and I completed it in 2hours 18mins. I was delighted with this time as it was 10minutes faster than the half marathon I did in May.Just after mile 11 I saw 3 friendly faces heading towards me. They were Padraig Friel, Adrian Callaghan and Kieran Coyle from Letterkenny AC. They ran back to complete the race with me. This gave me a great boost as after 11miles my legs were getting tired. After the race I ran back to the car, then I ran up and down the road and around the car park like a clown until my watch told me that I had 16miles completed. This felt like a great achievement!I cannot thank Letterkenny AC enough for all their help and encouragement. Their training sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday night are open to everyone and I highly recommend them! We meet at the Aura at 6:15pm. These sessions suit all runners of all abilities so give it a go!On Saturday the Spartans and I met in Phoenix Park for our final race before the Dublin City Marathon! This race was a half marathon 13.1 miles. There was a great atmosphere as 8025 runners lined up to start.After running the Waterside Half Marathon the previous Sunday I felt confident that I would match my time or at least be close enough to it. I was so excited! I had my Spartan top and gear on ready to go and it was only when I met the other Spartans with their numbers on that I realised I had forgot my number. It was sitting in my kitchen in Donegal!!! Whoops!Luckily for me one of the Spartans had a spare number or I would not have been allowed to run! When we were warming up it seemed quite chilly so I decided that I would ditch my water belt and use the water stations throughout the race.This was a bad idea and iIsuffered because of it! At the start of the race it was hard to get going as there were so many people. I ended up speeding up and slowing down to overtake people to try and get my pace right. After a couple of miles I needed water and I had to wait for the water station to appear. At the second water station I had to stop and wait for a lady to open the water bottles and pour them while the other two boys with water were chasing each other having a water fight. I had to queue for the water. There was a sign up that this was the last water station and we were just over the half way mark. I knew that I would not have enough water drank to continue at the pace I was going as I knew there were hills ahead.I started to slacken off a bit to conserve my energy for the hills. To my surprise there was a third water station before we finished but at this stage I was really dehydrated and was not running well. I knew I wasn’t going to match my time and I was just aiming to finish the race. I finished the race in 2:20:27 which was disappointing after my time the previous week. I was mad that I did not take my water belt but I am glad I learnt this lesson now as it won’t happen me on the day of the marathon. I will be well equipped!After the race all the Spartans assembled at the Spar tent and when we were leaving we realised that our next race is the big one – 26.2 miles at the Dublin City Marathon! I am really excited about it and am really looking forward to it. I will make sure not to forget my water and number that day 🙂 I would like to thank all of the shops and businesses who have taken a sponsor card so far in particular Tobins Spar in Letterkenny and McBrides Shop in Milford as they put boxes on their counters. I would like to thank all the people who have sponsored me so far in particular the Staff from Woodland National School. I am raising money for MS Donegal Branch and North West Cancer Group so all donations are greatly appreciated. I have set up a bank account so people can sponsor me by their online banking. If anyone is interested in taking a sponsorcard/box or sponsoring me online please email me at firstname.lastname@example.orgLINDA’S SPARTAN MARATHON CHALLENGE UPDATE was last modified: September 16th, 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:LINDA’S SPARTAN MARATHON CHALLENGE UPDATE
