LocalNews New youth radio program to be launched by: – February 2, 2012center_img Tweet Share A new radio programme geared at developing leadership skills among the youth and hearing what affects them will be officially launched in Dominica today.L.I.S.T.E.N which means Lessons Impacting Students to Empowerment Now, the brainchild of Rhoda St. John of the Generations of Opportunities Organization is geared towards highlighting the positive image of young people.St. John told an exclusive interview with Dominica Vibes News that more often than not only the negative things which young people do are highlighted in society, particularly in the media and she believes that the LISTEN programme is one way to change this trend.“Many times we hear everything that is negative where the youth are concerned is always quick to hit the media, everything bad is always quick to hit the media but when it comes to the positive things it doesn’t hit the media. What we are trying to do is to get the positive image of our young people, the positive voice that they have to offer we would like to get that into society; we would like to get that across the Caribbean.”The program which will be hosted by four young people on Vibes Radio, Dominica’s newest internet radio will be simultaneously aired by 12 Caribbean radio stations including Antigua, Anguilla, Montserrat, Grenada, St. Kitts, St. Vincent, St. Thomas and GuyanaSt. John explained the reason for partnering with other radio stations across the Caribbean for this youth programme.“We have to understand that when one island is destroyed all the others feel it. There’s no reason for us to pretend that it is not our concern for as we cherish and protect our individualities remember we are all called islands of the Caribbean. Anything that affects one island affects all the islands and therefore so we figure it is in the best interest to have a youth radio programme across the entire Caribbean so that the young persons can share their views, share concerns and let their voices be heard.”LISTEN will be aired every Saturday from 3 to 4pm on Vibes Radio and will feature several educational discussions including managements, saving, a tourism essay competition among others.According to St. John, “Our leaders of tomorrow are our youth of today and we need to train them now, they have a voice and they are the change; we are going out and they are coming in and they are our change makers”.The official launching will take place at the Fort Young Hotel from 3pm and will be broadcast live on http://www.vibesradio.dm and the 12 other radio stations across the Caribbean and includes.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Mourinho confident of title win

Posted on by

first_img “We know his hamstring is not a strong one. He works hard through the week to compensate the weakness he has there but the injury can come. “If he is injured then we have Remy, we have Drogba. we never cry about injured players.” Costa can at least expect to miss Spain’s forthcoming games against Ukraine and Holland, but despite the added rehabilitation time, Mourinho would rather be pressing on with the domestic calendar. “For Diego (the break) is good, because imagine we play three matches in one week, that’s three matches he doesn’t play,” the Portuguese added. “But in this moment we have nine matches to play and I would like to play every week, so it’s not good for us.” Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois gifted Abel Hernandez an equaliser just a minute after Ahmed Elmohamady made it 2-1, side-footing a back pass straight to the City striker. But Tigers boss Steve Bruce believes the Belgian’s brilliance later in the piece was crucial to the outcome. Courtois produced a sensational triple save from Elmohamady, Jake Livermore and Gaston Ramirez in the 64th minute to keep the scores level. “The big turning point in the game was where Courtois pulls off three saves which change the course of the game,” said Bruce, who was nevertheless delighted with his side’s endeavour. “That’s as good as we’ve played for a long, long time, against the best team in England. “We’re obviously disappointed to lose the game because I don’t think we deserved that. “We gave Chelsea a hell of a run for their money and on another day it could have gone our way. “I’m sure we’ve got enough and I’m convinced if we play like that, we’re good enough to stay in this division.” Jose Mourinho remains “pretty confident” his Chelsea side will be crowned Barclays Premier League champions, but Diego Costa is an injury concern for their title run-in. “I’m not pretty sure, I’m pretty confident. I believe in my players, I believe that we can do it but I know it’s difficult,” he said. “I keep thinking the same, the title race should be over. In normal conditions, Chelsea should have eight, 10, 12 points more than we have; title race over. “But football is unpredictable and the reality is we have a six-point lead, one game in hand, which is our best situation for the whole season.” Costa’s short-term involvement is an open question, though. The Spain striker claimed his 20th goal of the season with a wonderful curling effort to put Chelsea 2-0 up inside nine minutes following Eden Hazard’s opener, but Costa hobbled off with a hamstring injury. His exit allowed for Remy’s match-winning arrival, but whether he emerges from the imminent international break in match condition is uncertain. “When a striker is playing, the team needs a goal to win the game and with 15 minutes to go the striker, a guy with a lot of experience of hamstring injuries, says ‘it is over for me’, then it is over for him,” said Mourinho. “He has this problem. He tried to play the Champions League final for Atletico (Madrid, last season) and was injured again and again and again. He has this fragility. The Blues restored their six-point lead over Manchester City with a 3-2 win over spirited Hull on Sunday and retain a game in hand against rock-bottom Leicester. That makes them heavy favourites to lift the trophy and Mourinho was happy to accept the role of front-runners after Loic Remy grabbed a 77th-minute winner at the KC Stadium.
