UPP Education Policy

first_imgThe political leader of the United People’s Party (UPP), McDonald Wentoe, says his party is committed to supporting Liberia’s education sector.He made the remarks over the weekend at the University of Liberia’s Palava Hall during the induction of officials of the Student Integrity Movement (SIM).“We believe that getting education is an unquestionable path to the middle class and the upper class. UPP will provide all necessary opportunities to fulfill that dream and contribute to the economy and Liberia’s democracy,” Wentoe said He said Liberians are in search of education that will give them employable skills to compete for jobs in the wake of the increasing high cost of living.According to him, the UPP leadership will build new schools and equip them with modern technology, connecting them to 21st Century education – promoting the sciences, playgrounds, and recreational facilities and providing them with meals while learning.“We are committed to ensuring that every child in Liberia has access to basic education in the 21st Century, so they can compete with students in the region as well as students in the world,” he said.He noted that this will require excellence at every level of Liberia’s education system. This will mean that we close the achievement gap between Liberia and schools in the sub-region and ensure that in every county, children can benefit from high quality education, he added.On the party’s School to Work Policy, he said “We will reward teachers for achieving great successes among their students. We will work with all stakeholders, including schools, private and public sectors to develop the entire school system and provide rewards and incentives for performing schools—while providing support and assistance to struggling schools.”Wentoe said the UPP will achieve this by aligning the school’s curriculum with market demands at the domestic and international levels so that the youth can have a clear pathway from school to work. According to him, Liberians want opportunities and possibilities to realize their dreams raise strong families, and build vibrant communities.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Farmer jailed for killing neighbour

first_imgJustice Navindra Singh on Tuesday sentenced 47-year-old Godfrey Dass to 14 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to the lesser count of manslaughter for the death of his neighbour, Kenneth Kennedy, in June of 2009.Dass was initially charged for murder but opted to plead guilty to the manslaughter charge, which stated that on June 5, 2009, in the county of Essequibo, he unlawfully killed Kennedy.The accused was represented by Attorney Mark Conway, while the State’s case was led by Prosecutor Tuanna Hardy in association with Teriq Mohammed and Abigail Gibbs.In a plea of mitigation, the defence attorney informed the court that during his client’s time awaiting trial, he has been attending and benefiting from church services. Conway pleaded for leniency on behalf of his client, so that his client can return to society and be a better person.Facts presented indicated that, on June 5, 2009, the accused and the victim were consuming alcohol when a fight ensued. During the altercation, Dass managed to arm himself with a knife and dealt the now dead man a stab to his head which later lead to his death.The wife of the deceased man, who was unable to travel to Georgetown for the case, explained to the court in a statement submitted that since her husband’s death it has been difficult to provide for her children’s financial needs. The statement continued that her daughter, who witnessed the death of her father, is still affected by that traumatic experience.Justice Singh sentenced the father of two to 14 years in prison, while ordering that the prison authority deduct the years that the accused has spent on remand.Justice Singh also ordered the accused to stay away from the victim’s family when he is released from prison.last_img read more

Simba claw Leopards to make Super Cup semi

first_img0Shares0000AFC Leopards defender Isaac Kipyegon skips away from Simba’s Zana Coulibaly during their SportPesa Super Cup match at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on January 23, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluDAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania, Jan 23 – A late fight back from AFC Leopards did not bear fruit as the 13-time Kenyan Premier League champions fell 2-1 to Tanzanian giants Simba SC who qualified for the semi-finals of the SportPesa Super Cup at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Wednesday evening.Goals in either half from Emmanuel Okwi and Clatous Chama did the damage for Simba despite Vincent Oburu’s mid-second half goal that sparked the futile fight from two goals down. Simba who reached last year’s finals and lost to Gor Mahia will play another Kenyan outfit Bandari FC in Friday evening’s semi-final at the same venue.Wekundu wa Msimbazi did not show any signs of a hangover despite arriving in the Tanzanian capital just a few days from a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of AS Vita in a CAF Champions League match in DR Congo.The home side broke the deadlock after 13 minutes, Okwi striking them ahead with a deflected shot inside the box.A brilliant team move by the home side saw Zana Coulubaly released on the right and the wingback laid in a brilliant first time well weighted cross met by Okwi at the backpost unmarked. The Ugandan swept his markers away before striking a stinging shot that was deflected beyond keeper Jairus Adira.Simba had kept a commanding start to the match, keeping possession, passing with ease and pushed on by the sizeable crowd that had come out for the early evening kick off.AFC Leopards Whyvonne Isuza vies for the ball with Simba’s Jonas Mkude during their SportPesa Super Cup match at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on January 23, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluIn the 19 minutes, Coulibaly sent Okwi through again this time with a long ball planted behind the defense. However, Adira was hawkeyed in the AFC goal and he rushed out quick, sweeping away the ball with his feet as Okwi tried to dribble past him.AFC’s first chance of the game came through in the 24th minute and it was off a set-piece, Robinson Kamura sending it straight to keeper Aishi Manula after Eugene Mukangula was axed at the edge of the area.Four minutes later, Ingwe who were building their confidence step by step should have surely been level but Congolese striker Wayeka Tutawe, signed from Tanzania’s Africa Lyon in the beginning of the season wasted a glorious opportunity.The forward muscled away from Rashid Juma on the left before breaking into the box, but he chose to cut back the ball to Brian Marita instead of shooting.With the defense clouding around the winger, Marita was forced to tee up Edward Seda at the edge of the box but the midfielder’s shot was weak ending up in a routine save for Manula.AFC Leopards midfielder Edward Seda moves the ball forward during the SportPesa Super Cup match against Simba SC at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on January 23, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluTwo inutes later Tutawe came close when Marita knocked down Mukangula’s header for hm at the near post, but his shot brushed the bar on its way out.At the start of the second half, Simba tactician Patrick Aussems made changes, Meddie Kagere, Murushid Juuko and James Kotei all coming on for Hunlede Kisimbo, Serge Pascal Wawa and Jonas Mkude respectively.It took them just four minutes to double their advantage when Chama shot into the bottom right corner after being fed off by Okwi who had done well to sprint away from Isaac Kipyegon on the left.Adira was called into a brilliant save in the 56th minute when he sprung up brilliantly to tip over a Hassan Dilunga shot from distance after he was teed up by Okwi.Despite going down twice, AFC made a case for themselves with constant attacks and they made changes upfront, Vincent Oburu coming on for Wayeka while Aziz Okaka was on for Brian Marita.AFC Leopards defender Yussuf Mainge goes past Smba SC’s Rashid Juma during their SportPesa Super Cup match at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on January 23, 2019.

Rowing Defeats Creighton Saturday Morning

first_imgCARTER LAKE, Iowa – The Drake University rowing team defeated Creighton in three races Saturday morning on Carter Lake in the annual spring dual race between the longtime rivals. Drake competes next at the ICRI hosted by the University of Illinois Rowing clubs on Saturday, April 13 at Clinton Lake. 1V4 (1st, 8:39.0)C Killian4 White3 Piotraschke2 Cogdill1 Faria Drake beat Creighton in the varsity 8+, 2nd varsity 8+ and the varsity 4+ races. The Bulldogs’ 2nd varsity 4+ boat finished third in their race. The two longtime foes raced each other for the first time this school year after their annual fall meeting in Des Moines was cancelled due to high water on the Des Moines River. “I’m so proud of the how well everyone performed today,” said head coach Charlie DiSilvestro. “They all muscled past some very fast boats and I’m really pleased with the varsity 4 because they haven’t had the chance to row in the four boats much and being a smaller boat, it takes more technique which they showed. The 2nd varsity competed with seven novices and two varsity members and did a great job. In the varsity boat, Melanie (Dahlstrom) stepped in and helped muscle them going. Our cox’s handled very well a tough crosswind and they did great job of getting their crews ready to go on the line. Overall just really proud of everyone today and excited to once again be out on the water.”  center_img 2V8 (1st, 7:41.1)C Stock8 Roehrs7 Rimes6 Hargreeves5 Lajoie4 Hunt3 Hovland2 O’Donnell1 Coffman V8 Lineup (1st, 7:18.3)C Rambhia8 Bigus7 McNeely6 Peterson5 Konopacki4 Smith3 Thacker2 Dahlstrom1 Froeschner 2V4 (3rd, 9:01.95)C Vroman4 Piotraschke3 Simons2 McCullom1 Herbert Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

A Garda came to court to give evidence that the teenager had broken at least five of seven bail conditions imposed on him when he was last in court.The Gardai said he was strongly objecting to bail as the young man would break “one hundred bail conditions” put on him.The Garda said he was aware the man had broken a number of conditions including curfew conditions, not signing on, not answering his phone and not staying at the address he was supposed to.Solicitor Patsy Gallagher asked the man if he had broken any of his bail conditions and he admitted he had.However, Mr Gallagher asked Judge Kelly at Letterkenny District Court not to send the man back to St Patrick’s Institute as his personal safety was under threat.The young man gave evidence and said he was aware that seventeen year olds could be sent to Wheatfield Prison.However Judge Kelly ordered the man to St.Pats but ordered the necessary precautions to be taken to safeguard the man.JUDGE ADMITS THERE IS NO BAIL CONDITION TEENAGER WOULD NOT BREAK was last modified: January 14th, 2014 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:bail conditionsJudge Paul KellyLetterkenny District Courtlast_img read more

Gora! Gora!

first_imgIf you are a fair skinned westerner passing through Bombay, beguiled by the “Hey, you wanna be in the movies?” line, and the promise of Rs. 500 ($12) for a day’s work, you could find your 15 seconds of fame in the Hindi film industry. In a society that equates fairness with beauty, the westerner, especially the blue-eyed blonde-haired variety, fulfills a crucial role in providing instant background glamor to many a film. Budding film stars are recruited each morning from the traveller hang outs and hotels of the tourist friendly Colaba. Many of them are newly arrived from the International airport, or confused and dazed from a sleepless night on the bus from Udaipur. As the pavement agent bundles the tourists into a taxi, the aspiring actors chatter excitedly about their big break.Alas, their dreams of the movie style lifestyle are quickly shattered when they arrive at Churchgate Station, and are promptly herded onto an Rs 8 rush hour suburban train bound for one of the film studios in the western suburbs. On the journey I marvel at the foreigner’s abject lack of understanding of an industry that produces over 800 films a year. As a committed Bollywood fan, and seasoned western extra, I shudder at the perceptions and misconceptions that I hear bandied around the carriage: “Singing and dancing in the Swiss mountains” and “No kissing.”“No, no, no. It is not all singing and dancing in the mountains of Switzerland,” I respond. “Switzerland is so pass as overseas location of choice. Think New York (Kal Ho Naa Ho). Think London (Aashiq Banaya Aapne). Think Melbourne (Salaam Namaste). The movie-goer of today is as likely to be an N.R.I. as a Bihari.”Once the prospective stars have managed to fight their way off the train (not always a successful pursuit), they are shepherded to the studio, where the first stop is wardrobe. It is here that the fame seekers learn an important lesson in the thespian caste system. At the top, the Khans, the Bachchans, et al arrive on set immaculately attired and looking every inch the super stars. Coiffed hair and flawless make up comes with a whole entourage of people to keep it that way. The newcomers are led to a less salubrious, shared dressing room. No vanity van here. Banish those ideas of lights around the mirror and star on the door. Instead, we are handed frayed-at-the-collar suits and tentatively-held-together-with-a-safety-pin evening dresses. It is this chic attire that helps create the jet set image of the overseas bar/casino/nightclub on the Bombay sound stage. The standard traveler look of dreadlocks, piercings, and sandals does little to complete the desired effect. Neither hair and make up nor footwear extends this far down the caste system, as travelers attempt to tie back and tame knotted dreadlocks, and match their bought on a beach near Bangkok flip-flops with ill fitting evening wear. Finished in wardrobe, the actors are now ready to be thrust into stardom. On the set of Salaam e Ishq, a suited and sandaled fellow Englishman innocently enquires what we are supposed to do. “Act, just act,” is the curt reply from a casually attired 30 something in faded jeans. The taken aback in suit and sandal moans, “Who is that guy and why is he always shouting? He can’t be an actor?” An observation made no doubt on an appearance that is about as unkempt as our own.“That guy. That guy,” I say, “is Nikhil Advani, and no he is not an actor, he is a director. The director in fact of this film.” Scoring with Kal Ho Naa Ho as his debut, I want to add that he is a demi-god, albeit (sorry Nikhil-ji) a rather strict demi-god – who shouts a lot. Later that day, on the same shoot, the world of the foreign extra produces further comic tragedy, as an Australian gap year student playing a waiter, unceremoniously drops a tray of drinks. It could not have been timed better, forcing as it does a shout of “Cut!” from Nikhil, and interrupting Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra in their attempt to lip-synch their way through the Shankar-Eshaan-Loy title track. Demi-gods and dropped trays aside, this song is going to be the big hit of next year. You heard it here first, the infectious “Ishq, Ishq, Ishq, Salaam e Ishq” lyrics will be heard from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, upon the film’s Divali 2006 release.Another set, another suit and sandal. This time an American tourist on a three-month tour of India. We are shooting for Abbas-Mustan’s 36 China Town, and from a large group of background artists, we privileged two have been selected for an enviable position behind a cavorting Kareena Kapoor. Between takes the American tourist points at the figure of Manish Malhotra in black mini skirt with red sequins, and asks loudly, “Say, who is that? Is she famous at all? “Yes you could say she is famous.” I grimace, casually shuffling to one side in an attempt to distance myself from the speaker, all the while praying that Kapoor somehow didn’t hear.Another Kapur. Shahid Kapur may not be an internationally recognized star yet, but in the United Nations of extras, it is agreed that behind his ever present sunglasses, he has the movie star good looks to become one. It is these boyish good looks that will appear on countless tourists’ holiday snaps.Johny Lever is a movie star who may not have the conventional good looks of Shahid, but that doesn’t matter when you are one of India’s top comic actors. Alas, Johny Lever’s standing was unknown to a thirsty Swedish girl in an undersized and, in the studio lights, almost transparent dress. It was only through swift intervention of a crew member, that she was prevented from ordering garam chai from this veteran of over a 100 films under the assumption that he was a spot boy.Dear viewer, the next time you sit down to watch a Bollywood movie, look beyond the big name stars, disregard the current hero and heroine, and pay attention to the fair and lovely foreigner in the background. Applaud their acting. Idolize their outfits. Be dazzled by their dreadlocks. Salaam their sandals. Their 15 seconds starts now. Related Itemslast_img read more
