Wellington steps up for TG in Red Stripe Premier League

first_imgTivoli Gardens scored another massive victory to pull further away from the relegation zone, scoring a 1-0 win over Portmore United at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex yesterday.Rodico Wellington netted the game’s only goal from the penalty spot on 24 minutes to lift the West Kingston team to 32 points.Portmore ended the game with 10 players as Omar Daley was red-carded at the 41st minute.The goal was Wellington’s third of the season and the former Denham Town High School Manning Cup player, who is in his third Premier League season, says he is looking to fill the boots of Junior Flemmings, the club’s leading scorer this season, who left the island for an overseas contract recently.”I have taken over from Junior Flemmings because he has gone away on contract, so I told myself that I have to come out and do it for him. This is my third season and I feel I have found my footing (in league). My aim was 10 (goals) at the start of the season and right now I am at three, but I still think I can reach that amount,” he told The Gleaner.”Mr Bailey (coach Glendon) has given us more fitness and a mentality when we go into games to not lose. He has built my confidence a lot and that gives me the courage to go out and work hard and execute and we can make the top four. We just have to work hard and have the mindset to make the top four,” he said.FIRST-HALF PENALTYThe home team was better in the first half, and 24 minutes into the contest, Tivoli were awarded a penalty and Wellington fired past Shaven Sean Paul to give the hosts the lead.Portmore’s troubles were made worse four minutes before the break when captain Omar Daley received a second yellow card for insulting and verbally abusing the match referee.The defeat was the fourth in six games for Portmore, which is of some concern for assistant coach Jeffrey Hewitt, with the play-offs fast approaching.”This (defeat) will have a psychological impact. Our form is of some concern and we are trying to work on it. We thought the poor run was gone after four points from two games. But, today, we lost and we had to get the result and we didn’t get it,” he said.Tivoli’s assistant coach Damian Gordon said they are not out of the woods as yet.”We have to take it on a game-by-game situation. We have to look at the teams below us, so we have to keep on winning points,” he said.Yesterday’s ResultsTivoli 1 Portmore 0UWI FC 1 MoBay United 1Reno FC 1 Humble Lion 1Cavalier 0 Boys’ Town 0Today’s game9 p.m. Harbour View vs Rivoli United at Harbour View Mini Stadiumlast_img read more

Customs Brokers End Strike over “Deal”

first_imgThe 40,000 member National Customs Brokers Association of Liberia (NCBAL) has partially ended its strike action, resumed work and will likely reach an agreement today, with the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA).The president of NCBAL, Ivan J.F. Tumbey, said the NCBAL recently halted its protest to negotiate and reach a compromis after several appeals from stakeholders, including Grand Bassa County District # 5 Representative Robertson N. Siaway, the Managing Director of the National Port Authority, Matilda Parker and Commissioner Dorbor Jallah of the Public Procurement and Concessions Commission (PPCC).Mr. Tumbey said the association was advised to negotiate in the national interest instead of engaging in further confrontations.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer over the weekend, Mr. Tumbey said that at the top of NCBAL’s agenda in today’s meeting is tackling the additional fees on the Clean Report of Findings (CRF) and collecting fees of US$50 per 20-foot container and  US$100 per 40-feet container for scanning of Pre-Shipment Containers (PSI) when in fact the scanner is not functioning.Tumbey maintained that the unnecessary additional fees are disturbing and the NCBAL wishes that the LRA should stop such charges until the scanner is functional and the charging power is renegotiated.When asked whether they would resume their strike action if the LRA did not stop the additional fees on the Clean Report of Findings (CRF) and containers, Mr. Tumbey said the question was out-of-order because the LRA boss, Mrs. Elfrieda Tamba, is an honorable woman and woman of her word.“I don’t think Madam Tamba will allow us to choke the budget, the economy and international trade…..because she is an honorable woman,” Mr. Tumbey said.It may be recalled, on Monday, February 2, the customs brokers staged a nationwide strike disrupting clearing of imports at the nation’s seaports, airports and borders, depriving the government of millions of dollars in tax revenues.The NCBAL which contributes nationwide US$2m daily into government coffers has a list of complaints that have so far not been addressed by the LRA or the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning.The Customs Brokers cited unlawful, illegal and unjust collection of taxes from members of the business community by LRA, among other criticisms, and threatened to continue the strike until their terms are met.During the strike action, the Daily Observer gathered that clearing of imports had slowed down denying the Liberian   Government of millions of dollars from tariffs and other import charges.The major ports of entry affected include the Freeport of Monrovia, the Port of Buchanan, the border points in Cape Mount and Lofa Counties as well as the Ganta entry point in Nimba County.Mr. Tumbey said besides the additional fees on the Clean Report of Findings (CRF) and collecting fees of US$50 per 20-foot container and US$100 per 40-feet container, the LRA has appointed additional assessors to already assigned assessors at the DI-sites at the Freeport of Monrovia to re-appraise all cargos, a procedure which he said is outside of the agreement signed between BIVAC and GOL.Only BIVAC is authorized to appraise all cargos at the country of origin, using all of the internationally accepted procedures, according to the agreement between GOL and BIVAC.Mr. Tumbey further alleged that Customs Officers of the LRA and employees of the Ministries of Commerce & Industry and Finance and Development Planning are engaged in Clearing and Forwarding while at the same time carrying on their normal government functions.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

PEOPLE FROM DONEGAL PREVENTED FROM ACCESSING VITAL MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES

first_imgPearse Doherty TDDeputy Pearse Doherty has labelled as ‘unacceptable and wrong’ current HSE operational practices which prevent adults in Donegal from accessing the important psychology service, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).The therapy is a multi-disciplinary programme developed to provide key psychological supports to people who engage in self-harm and display suicidal behaviour, while also offering assistance to their families.However, following correspondence received by Deputy Doherty from the HSE, it’s been revealed that the service is not available to adult patients in Donegal due to a shortage of psychologists. Deputy Doherty said “Last month I wrote to the HSE concerning the provision of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, or DBT as it is commonly known, in Donegal as I had become concerned over reports I had received from patients in the county that they and their families were unable to receive the treatment.“Following correspondence which I’ve since received from the HSE in relation to mental health services in Donegal, management locally has confirmed that adults in this county are unable to receive DBT psychology services which are available in other parts of this state.“This clarification is yet another example of just how inadequate mental health services are in this county and the discrimination which some of the most vulnerable people in the Northwest experience in terms of mental health service provision is nothing short of disgraceful.“Dialectical Behaviour Therapy is a psychology led multi-disciplinary programme which usually lasts over a 16 week period and is delivered by the Child and Family Mental Health Service. “The programme is seen as a key part of treatment for people living with these conditions, and while this therapy is available for adolescents between the ages of 12 and 18 years of age who practice self-harm, who suffer from emotional dysregulation or who have suicidal ideation or thoughts, adults in Donegal are prevented from accessing it.“The service also provides additional supports to the families of those who are undergoing the therapy which consists of weekly sessions and out-of-hours phone coaching.“Despite the evidence to suggest the benefit which this cognitive behavioural treatment may yield for patients and their loved ones, there is currently no mechanism in place which allows for adult service users in Donegal to be referred on to receive DBT treatment outside the county.“While not ideal, as an interim measure it is now crucial that a service level agreement be drawn up immediately to allow for patients in Donegal to avail of DBT treatment in other areas until such time as the recruitment of additional psychologists takes place to enable services to operate here locally.“Depriving vulnerable people of vital services is simply unacceptable and totally wrong, and I intend to raise this gap in our mental health services with the Minister and with his successor whoever he or she may be in the weeks ahead.” PEOPLE FROM DONEGAL PREVENTED FROM ACCESSING VITAL MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES was last modified: April 6th, 2016 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:donegalmental healthPearse DohertyServiceslast_img read more

GALLAGHER DEMANDS GOVERNMENT REVERSAL ON VATICAN DECISION

first_imgNorth West MEP Pat the Cope Gallagher has called on the Government to reverse its decision to withdraw Ireland’s Resident Ambassador to the Vatican.Speaking last night in the European Parliament in Strasbourg, the Fianna Fáil MEP described the decision as “ill judged, wrong and improper”.Mr. Gallagher said, “Religion plays a central role in international affairs and the Vatican offers a window to the rest of the world. In this context it would be remiss of me not to raise the recent decision by the Irish Government to withdraw Ireland’s resident Ambassador to the Holy See, which has been in place since 1929. “I strongly believe that this was an ill-judged, wrong and improper decision by any objective test of international diplomacy.“This decision leaves Ireland out of step with the rest of Europe, as the vast majority of EU Member States have resident Ambassadors in Rome.“I call on the Irish Government, and in particular the Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs Éamon Gilmore to immediately reverse this decision – a decision opposed by the vast majority of the Irish people.”GALLAGHER DEMANDS GOVERNMENT REVERSAL ON VATICAN DECISION was last modified: February 14th, 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:Pat The Cope GallagherVaticanlast_img read more

Drake Relays Presented By Hy-Vee Announces Upcoming Enhancements for the 108th Drake Relays; Single Session Tickets on Sale Thursday

first_imgStory Links DES MOINES, Iowa – Blake Boldon, the first-year director of the Drake Relays presented by Hy-Vee, unveiled a series of enhancements for the upcoming Drake Relays presented by Hy-Vee that will appeal to fans, athletes and the track & field community as a whole. Inside Drake Stadium, Boldon announced tweaks to the Relays schedule to better serve athletes and fans. The high school girls 3,000 meters and high school boys 3,200 meters have been moved to Thursday evening’s distance carnival at 6:10 and 6:25 p.m. The move reduces missed class time for high school athletes and provides a bigger stage for the top distance runners in the state of Iowa as part of the traditional Distance Carnival event on the Blue Oval. Earlier in the week, the annual Grand Blue Mile presented by Wellmark gives the Des Moines community the opportunity to cheer on and race on the same course as the top road mile competitors in the nation. The Grand Blue Mile will again serve as the U.S. Road Mile Championship with a $25,000 prize purse available for competitors. Heather Kampf, a three-time U.S. Road Mile champion and four-time Grand Blue Mile champion is set to defend her titles on the streets of Des Moines. Chad Noelle, the reigning men’s Grand Blue Mile champion is also returning the field after making his professional debut at the event last season. All-session and multi-session ticket packages for the 2017 Drake Relays presented by Hy-Vee are currently available at DrakeTix.com, by visiting the Drake Athletic Ticket Office or calling 515-271-3647. Single-session tickets go on sale to the general public at March 23 at 9 a.m. Print Friendly Version Buy Tickets Now Americans Sam Kendricks and Sandi Morris are two of those world-class athletes set to entertain the Capital Square Vault crowd as they launch themselves to dizzying heights inside Capital Square. Both Kendricks and Morris are the reigning U.S. Indoor Champions in the event and Olympic medalists after Morris claimed the silver medal in last summer’s Rio Olympic Games while Kendricks was the bronze medalist in the event. Boldon announced that the Capital Square Vault, one of the highlights of the 2016 Relays, will be returning in 2017 with host sponsors Catch Des Moines and the Des Moines Register. The event, staged in the atrium of Capital Square in downtown Des Moines April 26 at 5:45 p.m., continues the Relays’ tradition of taking events into the community and giving fans a more up close and personal experience with the competition and world class athletes. To further serve high school competitors, Boldon announced an additional section of the high school 400-meter hurdles has been added to the schedule, doubling the number of opportunities for athletes to compete in the event.last_img read more
