‘Totally Unacceptable and Unbecoming Acts of Violence’, Change Incorporated Foundation Boss Warns Quardu Gbondi…

Posted on by

first_imgThe Program Coordinator of a non-for-profit foundation based in Monrovia has described actions of the Quardu Gbondi citizens in Lofa County as ‘totally unacceptable and unbecoming acts of violence’ against the Liberian leader.A week ago the Liberian leader visited Lofa County officially intended to assess the conditions of the Ebola virus Disease impacts and accomplishments at the epic-center in Foya District and other areas.Program Coordinator Byrd Leroy Morris Sr. head of Change Incorporated (CI) further pointed out that the attitude of the Quardu Gbondi citizens and youths does not represent the aspirations of Liberian youth groups.“If we are young people are to take over the mantle of leadership of the nation in the near we must cultivate virtues that would commensurate with the herculean tasks ahead,” Mr. Morris stressed.He further indicated that the currently new wave of doctrine of disrespect to Constitutional authorities is becoming a vicious circle and called on all young Liberians to desist from unwholesome and ungodly attitude if Liberia is to forge ahead. Mr. Morris also noted that with young people assuming leadership let us as Liberians be more civil in their utterances to leaders especially those that are constitutionally elected in the country.The CI boss warned that Liberians cannot and should not vote people in power just to insult them and Liberians should channel their displeasures and grievances through other means rather than verbal abuses.“This is becoming a new culture and folks see this as a means of entering government and that is if one becomes fearless and provocative in their utterances, it is evident that the government may pacify him/her with a job,” Coordinator Morris asserted.Mr. Morris also pointed out some Liberians may want to argue that Boakai Jalieba allegedly insulted the President and was rewarded with an Assistant Ministerial Post.  He however, urged Liberians to leave that up to him and posterity will judge and rest of his people.Mr. Morris added that this trend should serve as a wake-up call to our leaders and those constitutionally elected to respect the young people and prioritize the well being of young people through the provision of employment and scholarship opportunities if we are to forge ahead as a nation and people.The CI head that Liberians should be more civil in addressing issues with their leaders and added that he is using this medium to apologize to the Liberian President for the rude behavior exemplified by youths in Lofa County.The CI head noted that the manner in which their grievances were meted out against the Liberian leader were indeed counterproductive.He also emphasized that the President will always be the President and this nation is a nation governed by law and people should respect those tents if this nation is to forge ahead and depend on the youth as future leaders of the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Child bereavement organisation, Guyana Golden Lives officially launched

Posted on by

first_imgThe Guyana Golden Lives Organisation, a unique non-governmental organisation (NGO) which caters for children coping with bereavement, was formally launched on Thursday.The Department of Public Information (DPI) reported that the founder and Queen’s Young Leaders’ Awardee, Marva Langevine, said she was inspired to establish the NGO after reading a biblical scripture which called for the care of the less fortunate.She was also further persuaded after witnessing the effect her friend’s death due to cancer had on her two young children.The 25-year-old said, “The training, the networking opportunities, the knowledge to manage a non-profit and how to take it to the next level… Persons were telling meBritish High Commissioner Greg Quinn and founder of Guyana Golden Lives, Marva Langevinethat this going to get big; this going to blow up… So, the Queen’s Young Leaders’ award gave me that push I needed and here we are today.”Langevine established the NGO in 2014 and has since assisted 30 children so far, with guidance from the Queen’s Young Leaders’ programme.Also, addressing the gathering at the launch was the Advisor to the Public Health Minister, John Adams, who recalled during his 28 years of teaching and social protection experience, he witnessed how children attempted to cope with the loss of a parent or both.Adams noted, “If an adult loses a parent it is difficult, much less a child, and for them to grow they need our support. For them to cope they need our support. For them to develop into that adult who will make a positive contribution to the development of their country, and their community, they need our support. I’m happy that Marva has chosen this path.”Support for the initiative was promised by British High Commissioner, Greg Quinn, who noted “I hope you will all be able to do likewise. It is the very least we can do for this amazing young woman, the embodiment of everything the Queen’s Young Leaders’ Programme is about.”Stakeholders also heard an emotional testimony from orphan Orlanzo Raghunandan who lost both parents. Raghunandan, who benefited from the Golden Lives organisation, spoke of his determination to succeed at his Civil Engineering studies despite having to learn to cope with the loss of both parents at an early age.An explanation of the five stages of grief – denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance – was given by Dr Coleena Brown. She explained, “we can help them [the bereaved] get to the place of acceptance. Because once you are there, you’re able to manage your life as a child, as a teenager and as an adult in a much healthier way.”At the conclusion of the launch, a puppy was presented to a Best Village orphan Angel Shivsanker and a certificate guaranteeing lifetime care, courtesy of Pawsome Pets’ Luana Pierre.last_img read more

Posted on by

first_imgScores of Sophia, Greater Georgetown squatters who were affected by the recent demolition exercise executed by the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) on Monday, picketed the Housing Ministry calling for more time before their forced removal and more importantly, alternative housing arrangements.A Sophia squatter carried this placard during the picketing exerciseRepresenting the residents of Sophia squatting area was Clayton Jarvis who came into agreement with the CEO of Central Housing and Planning Authority, Lelon Saul, to extend the time given to the Sophia squatters to be removed.Jarvis, a squatter himself, made arrangements to work together with the CH&PA and the Anti-Squatting Task Force of Constituencies five and six to remove squatters who are owners of house lots but continue to squat nevertheless. He also agreed to police the reserves to ensure that no new structures are erected on the reserves, to provide status updates on applications submitted by squatters and to also facilitate the registration of new applicants who are squatting on the reserves in the two constituencies.The meeting was called after irate squatters picketed the Ministry demanding answers. According to Saul, persons were given notices of eviction and the Ministry will not tolerate squatting since it’s illegal. Jarvis stated that all he wants is for the authority to find alternatives for the residents.Sophia squatters affected by the recent demolition exercise executed by the Central Housing and Planning Authority, on Monday picketed the CH&PA calling for more time before their forced removal and for alternative housing arrangementsSquatters whose houses were ripped down and soon to be demolished were heard venting their frustrations as they stood on the parapets in front of the Ministry.According to representatives of the housing authority, squatting is impeding the progress in the community of Sophia and as such, a task force was set up to address the issue.Guyana Times understands that notice boards were erected on A,B,C and D fields Sophia informing persons to desist from squatting since it is illegal.

Thanou distances herself from former lawyer, comment about deserving gold medal

Posted on by

first_img“The statement I made reflected my personal opinion – not that of Ms. Thanou – and that remains my personal opinion,” said Dimitrakopoulos, adding he has not represented Thanou since 2004. Thanou and Kenteris also have been tainted by doping allegations. They missed the 2004 Athens Olympics after failing to appear for a doping test on the eve of the games, and both served two-year bans. ATHENS, Greece – Greek sprinter Katerina Thanou distanced herself Monday from her former lawyer, who has said Thanou deserved an Olympic gold medal won by Marion Jones. Thanou won the silver behind Jones in the 100 meters at the 2000 Sydney Games, and Jones admitted last week that she was using banned substances at the time. Lawyer Michalis Dimitrakopoulos “had no authorization or right to speak on her behalf, and his statements do not reflect the views of Ms. Thanou,” lawyer Grigoris Ioannides said in a statement. Dimitrakopoulos represented Thanou and Kostas Kenteris during the 2004 Olympics. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Wal-Mart sends shiver

Posted on by

first_imgNEW YORK – Tepid December sales at Wal-Mart Stores Inc. made Wall Street uneasy Tuesday, but many analysts don’t expect disappointing results from other retailers – most merchants are expected to meet their modest holiday expectations. “Clearly, there are some overtones for the industry, but I think largely Wal-Mart has some of its own issues,” said Bob Buchanan, an analyst at St. Louis-based A.G. Edwards. “I think they are still very sloppy with store-level execution.” Michael P. Niemira, chief economist at the International Council of Shopping Centers, agreed. He noted that Wal-Mart is still “behind the curve,” despite its efforts in improving its merchandise offerings. Nonetheless, given Wal-Mart’s size and reach, the estimated December same-store sales increase of 2.2 percent the retailer announced Saturday will hurt the overall industry’s sales for the month. Wal-Mart’s forecast is based on stores open at least a year, considered the best gauge of a retailer’s strength. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Merchants report their December results on Thursday. Wal-Mart’s news sent many retail stocks sliding Tuesday. Wal-Mart was off 1.22 percent, or 57 cents, to close at $46.23 in regular trading, and lost another 13 cents in after-hours trading to $46.10. Wal-Mart’s shares have traded in a 52-week range of $42.31 to $54.60. Target Corp., slipped 25 cents, to $54.72 after trading in a 52-week range of $45.55 to $60. Kohl’s Corp. shares fell 2.53 percent, or $1.23 to $47.37, having traded between $43.63 and $58.90 over the past 52 weeks. Because of Wal-Mart’s disappointing December sales, “the overall holiday picture doesn’t seem as bright as it did last week,” said Niemira. He now expects the International Council of Shopping Centers-UBS December same-store sales tally for the 70 stores it tracks to be up 3 percent, instead of 3.5 percent. Niemira believes December’s losers and winners will follow the same trend from the past year: Wholesale clubs and luxury stores will have the strongest gains, but apparel stores and department stores will have mixed results. The tepid results from Wal-Mart – which were at the low end of its 2 percent to 4 percent forecast – were surprising considering that the discounter was more aggressive with its discounting and marketing compared with the 2004 holiday season. Analysts polled by Thomson Financial expected a 3 percent increase. Wal-Mart had a solid start to the season in November, beating rival discounter Target. But Target appears to have gained strength; last week, it said it still expects a December same-store sales gain between 4 percent to 5 percent after posting a modest 2.6 percent increase in November. A big question is how profitable the fourth quarter, which ends in late January, will be for retailers. That depends in part on how much gift card redemption takes place this month and whether shoppers will use these cards to buy regular-priced merchandise, the most profitable in retailers’ inventory, according to Ken Perkins, president of Retail Metrics LLC, a research firm in Swampscott, Mass. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
