(AP Photo/Ringo H.W. Chiu)CARSON, Calif. — Major League Soccer’s past, present and future all converged at Dignity Health Sports Park on Saturday night.One of the highlights of the opening day of the league’s 24th season was the LA Galaxy unveiling a statue of David Beckham before their 2-1 victory over the Chicago Fire. Beckham played six seasons with the Galaxy (2007-12) and led them to two championships.ADVERTISEMENT No. 3 Duke rolls past Miami Arena spoke during the ceremony and Jones was among the former players who were in the crowd.“In this era of analytics I am sure David’s numbers would not stand out,” Arena said. “But when he scored goals, he scored decisive goals. He was simply a great leader and winner.”Beckham was also placed in the team’s Ring of Honor at halftime. He will have a chance to his statue often during future seasons as he is one of the owners of Inter Miami FC, which will begin play in MLS next year.“My commitment to his league and country was always a lot more than on the field,” Beckham said. “I wanted to grow the game and play a small part in growing this league and making it bigger. I think we have been successful but there still is a long way to go but I think we are very happy with the growth over the past 10 years.”ADVERTISEMENT Japeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for Ginebra Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award LATEST STORIES Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history Eugenie Bouchard’s bid for Australian Open spot ends in qualifying Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Rogue cops marked as Gamboa’s targets in his appointment as PNP chief Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil MOST READ Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Beckham saw one of the league’s top players make an impact in the Galaxy’s 2-1 victory.

TNIMA Graduates to Get on GOL Payroll ‘Right Away’

first_imgThe 91 recent graduates of the Tubman National Institute of Medical Arts (TNIMA) have been informed that they are going to “right away” be employed and placed on the Government of Liberia (GOL) payroll.The news was broken to them by a representative of the Ministry of Health during the 60th commencement convocation exercises of TNIMA on Tuesday, July 28. The convocation ceremony took place at the Monrovia Christian Fellowship Center in Sinkor. The Chief Nursing Officer of Liberia, Madam Musu Washington, who represented Health Minister, Dr. Bernice Dahn, said she had been instructed by the Health Minister to inform the graduates that they would be “right away” placed on GOL payroll. It was as though the TNIMA graduates were waiting for this news. They burst out into singing and dancing.Speaking earlier, TNIMA Administrator Mrs. Sarah Kollie had spoken of the support that the institute is receiving from the government through the John F. Kennedy (JFK) Medical Center.She thanked the government for continually providing feeding and stipend to the students. She also praised the government for making the salary payments of TNIMA staff current. She disclosed that the students are fed five times a week. Also speaking, Dr. Wvannie-Mae Scott-McDonald, General Administrator of JFK said the graduating class was the first in the post-Ebola era. Dr. Scott-McDonald said they are dynamic, professional and educated young men and women, who are ready to help in building a resilient health sector in the country.She disclosed that the class helped shape the curriculum of the institute. She then turned them over to the Ministry of Health. The 91 graduates included 26 from School of Professional Nursing; 27 from School of Physician Assistants; 18 from School of Professional Midwifery; 11 from School of Environmental Health; and 9 from School of Laboratory Technology.Graduates of the School of Professional Nursing were topped by Ms. Kou Gblankeh of Nimba County; while Ms. Hawa J. Kiawu of Grand Cape Mount County came first in the School of Professional Midwifery. Among the 11 students in the School Environmental Health, Mr. Boimah B. Barclay of Cape Mount scored the highest. In the School of Laboratory Technology, Mr. Nelson G. Karpoe of Nimba came first, while in the School of Physician Assistants, Mr. Adrian S. Jackson of Montserrado County topped. In his Valedictory address, Mr. Adrian S. Jackson, said during their academic sojourn, they had many stumbling blocks, including the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD). Jackson said they had hardly gone two years into their studies when they were called upon to fill in some gaps that were created by striking health workers of the National Health Workers Association of Liberia (NHWAL).Those who volunteered took up assignments in southeastern Liberia. He further stated that, just as they were about to return to classes, Ebola struck. He used the occasion to call for a moment of silence in memory of all the health care providers, who lost their lives in fight against the deadly disease.The Physician Assistant graduate disclosed that two of their classmates succumbed to the virus as they tried to save lives. Jackson promised on behalf of him and his colleagues to exhibit professionalism at all areas where they will be assigned.Delivering the keynote address, Dr. Masoka P. Fallah, Principal Investigator, Partnership for Research on Ebola Vaccines in Liberia (PREVAIL) told the graduates that it was a momentous day in their lives as they were about to achieve their long cherished dream. “The sacrifices you have made and the many midnight candles you burnt over the years have yielded the highly anticipated dividend—your diplomas. Today, you will begin to walk in the path of professional health care workers,” Dr. Fallah said.He acknowledged that even though parents and well-wishers and the graduates themselves were joyous, he is convinced that it was not an easy journey. “Looking back, many of you are reminiscing the many times you said no to distractions that could have deprived you of this day. Your victory today is best captured by the famous poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: ‘The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward, onward through the night’. “You have toiled and sweated and now honor is being bestowed upon you today.”He reminded the graduates that they were graduating at a time when the healthcare profession in Liberia is at a crossroads. “On one side of the crossroad, our health care professionals have demonstrated to the world that we are capable of dealing with one of the deadly diseases facing humanity- Ebola virus disease. You now have examples of luminaries, who fought the Ebola disease in the treatment units as laboratory technicians, nurses, physician assistants and hygienists. These people were able to risk their lives in order to save the lives of many of our infected brothers and sisters. Many of our health workers kept the doors of hospitals like JFK open as well as many other clinics, while many of their colleagues died in the process.”Dr. Fallah further told them that their willingness to give their lives in the process of serving their patients is the highest sacrifice that any human being can make. The PREVAIL Principal Investigator who spoke on the theme, “Intersecting Extrinsic Motivation with Intrinsic Values among Healthcare Professionals Is the Bedrock to Improving Healthcare in Liberia,” stated that as he spoke the professions of nurse anesthetic and radiologic technicians are rapidly becoming extinct. “There are limited opportunities available to you to become specialized in other areas or to acquire higher degrees in your various professional areas. The consequences of these challenges are that we are still sending our patients to countries like Ghana for many specialized care. We are not able to treat certain specialized conditions because we still lack the trained health professionals and the tools. There are still counties where 60 percent of the citizens lack access to health care and there are counties with only one oxygen machine.” He hoped that they (graduates) would be part of the solutions to some of the health challenges that they would walk into in the coming days.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Wydad say ‘suicidal’ to shut up shop against Ahly

first_imgBut Amotta believes “parking the bus” is not an option as Wydad seek to win the competition for the second time after their 1992 triumph over Al Hilal of Sudan.“Ahly boast one of the best attacks in Africa so it would be suicidal to sit back and defend against them, hoping to win on away goals,” the 48-year-old former midfielder said.“We must attack because there are flaws in the Ahly defence, while not giving our opponents space to catch us on the counter.“Wydad achieved a great result in Egypt by holding Ahly, one of the most experienced clubs in the continent.“But this final is far from decided. I want my players to relax, attack when it is opportune and try very hard to score the first goal,” said Amotta.Wydad, making their third appearance in the final having lost to Esperance of Tunisia six seasons ago, boast a perfect Champions League home record this year of six victories.Among their victims were Ahly in the group stage with goals from now-departed Congo Brazzaville striker Fabrice Ondama and midfielder Walid El Karty delivering a 2-0 win.They also eliminated defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa on penalties after a Salaheddine Saidi goal won the second leg in Rabat.The Wydad defence and goalkeeper Zouheir Laaroubi have been outstanding at home in Africa, going 517 minutes without conceding before USM Alger of Algeria netted in the semi-finals.At the other end of the pitch, striker Achraf Bencharki has regained form at the right time, scoring three goals in his last two outings.His brace saw off USM in a 3-1 semi-final second-leg triumph and he levelled via a glancing header in the final after Ahly had snatched a third-minute lead via Moamen Zakaria.Bencharki had scored only twice in 11 earlier Champions League matches this season for a club with two CAF titles to boast of having won the 2002 African Cup Winners Cup.Ahly may be on the back foot having squandered numerous chances in Alexandria with Morocco-born Walid Azaro the chief culprit after scoring a semi-finals hat-trick.They were also deprived of a blatant penalty during the second half when Azaro was floored in full sight of the generally unimpressive Ethiopian referee.Record eight-time champions Ahly have a mixed away record in Africa this season, winning twice, drawing twice and losing twice.The “Cairo Red Devils” will be encouraged, though, by a win and a draw from three previous visits to Wydad in the competition.Coach Hossam El Badry remains hopeful of a second title under his watch, having guided the club to 2012 glory in a previous spell at the helm.“We did not exploit our chances in the first leg and were denied an obvious penalty,” said the 57-year-old former Ahly defender.“Our overall performance was impressive and I believe in the abilities of my players. We will fight to achieve victory until the final whistle sounds.”The champions will pocket a record $2.5 million (about 2.1 million euros) and secure a place at the FIFA Club World Cup in the United Arab Emirates during December.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Wydad Casablanca fans: if the team beats Zanaco of Zambia they will have 12 points in the hotly-contested Group D of the CAF Champions LeagueJOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Nov 3 – Wydad Casablanca coach Houcine Amotta said it would be “suicidal” to try and defend the 1-1 CAF Champions League final first-leg draw when they meet Al Ahly again Saturday.  A goalless second leg at the Stade Mohammed V would give the Moroccans victory over the Egyptians on the away-goal rule in the premier African club competition title decider.last_img read more

In 2018 however Atletico beat Marseille in the Europa League final.Griezmann finished third for the Ballon d’Or in 2016, after France lost in the final to Portugal at the European Championships and was a huge presence as Les Bleus romped to a memorable World Cup win at Russia 2018 after which he also finished third for the Ballon d’Or.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000French striker Antoine Griezmann has told Atletico his time there is over © AFP / GABRIEL BOUYSMADRID, Spain, May 14 – French striker Antoine Griezmann has told Atletico Madrid he will leave them in the close season, the Spanish club said on Twitter on Tuesday.The 28-year-old Griezmann has a contract until 2023 with Atletico, but has a buy out clause of 120million euros ($134million) and has been the target of several approaches from La Liga rivals Barcelona.last_img read more

DONEGAL HEROIN DRUG DEALER JAILED FOR FIVE YEARS

first_imgLetterkenny Garda chiefs are delighted that Gerard Colhoun is now ‘out of the loop’GARDAI in Donegal are jubilant after a cog in a drug gang was jailed over a €20,000 heroin bust three years ago.Evil ‘smack’ pusher Gerard Colhoun was this evening starting a five year sentence behind bars for trying to bring the lethal drug into Donegal. But the plot to flood Letterkenny and other areas within the county with herion was smashed during a Garda intelligence-led drug operation.Today, Colhoun, from Munitirtinney, Raphoe stood in the dock of Cavan Circuit Court when Judge John O’Hagan handed him down a 60 month jail term for possession of the killer drug with intent to supply.Colhoun came to the attention of Gardai following a tip-off about his role in the supply and and sale of herion in both Letterkenny and greater Donegal areas.As a result, the Letterkenny drugs unit set up a covert surveillance operation in 2010 to discreetly monitor his activities and where he was buying his drugs from.They soon discovered he was making regular trips outside the county to Cavan.And on the day of April, 22, 2010, the drugs unit pounced on Colhoun as he coming back  from Cavan to Donegal.His vehicle was intercepted and onboard Letterkenny drug unit officers found him to be in possession of heroin with a street value of €19,000.This evening Gardai in Letterkenny were delighted with Colhoun’s five year sentence.A spokesperson said: “It is significant that he has been taken out of the loop.“The sentence passed today is a clear message to anyone involved in the supply of drugs that if you are caught you will go to prison and you will lose your liberty for a substantial period of time.”DONEGAL HEROIN DRUG DEALER JAILED FOR FIVE YEARS was last modified: June 5th, 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:CAVAN CIRCUIT COURTDONEGAL HEROION DRUG DEALER JAILED FOR FIVE YEARSGERARD COLHOUNJUdge John O’HaganLetterkenny Gardailast_img read more
