Prioritize Health Sector in Budget, Says Health Advocacy Group

first_imgA health advocacy group, National Health Advocacy Network of Liberia is calling on the government to correct mistakes that led to almost two weeks of strike from the nation’s health workers.The group came out with the request following two days of strategic planning held to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.The call by the group—for government to give preference to the Health sector—raised the specter (ghost) of a strike action by health workers across the country that led to a serious health crisis last month.According to the group, low incentives for health workers is contributing to the increasing flight of experienced medical practitioners to other countries. They listed regular shortages of needed drugs, and poorly equipped medical facilities as other hurdles constantly faced in the health-care sector.In a statement, the health advocacy group called on government to respect the Abuja Declaration which, among other things, calls for commitment to the Health sector by increasing financial allotments in order to fight infant mortality.As June approaches for the passage of the fiscal budget, the NHANL is of the view that government remains aware of the plight of health workers and is investigating the causes of problems they face in order to address them.Briefing the Daily Observer on some of the plights of health workers, a representative of the group said that health workers have complained of low incentives, lack of social security benefits, and discrepancies in salaries for years.On the issue of salary discrepancy, the group noted that certain people are given preferential treatment by receiving salaries in US Dollars while others receive theirs in less valuable Liberian Dollars.In addition, the group noted that government only provides a single uniform for health workers when they should receive three sets per person.“A quality public health care system is critical for improving life expectancy and has numerous social and economic benefits; they include national savings on amounts that would otherwise be expended on expensive foreign health trips,” the group emphasized.The National Health Advocacy Network of Liberia is also planning a full documentary to map health challenges in Montserrado County.The research would focus on access to quality public health services and facilities in Montserrado County.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Sannino resigns as Watford manager

first_img1 Former Watford boss Giuseppe Sannino Watford have announced the resignation of Giuseppe Sannino as Hornets manager, 24 hours after his side beat Huddersfield 4-2 at home to climb up to second in the Championship table.The 57-year-old Italian has called time on his stay at Vicarage Road after just under nine months in charge, saying he had taken the club “as far as I can” despite their promising league position.“I took over a very talented squad when I arrived – but they were boys in many ways”, Sannino said on Watford’s official website.“I’m proud of what we have achieved and I have no doubt that the squad now, who look very much like men who know exactly what they must do, are very capable of getting promotion from this tough Championship league.“I know I have given everything to Watford; I have given my heart and soul to the job and I have been happy to do this because of the wonderful support I have received from everyone – and most of all the fans, who are truly amazing.“However I feel I have gone as far as I can so, for the benefit of me and the club, I feel the time is right for me to move on.”Sannino’s departure leaves a third vacancy in the Championship, with Leeds and Huddersfield also searching for a manager.Watford must now start their hunt, with several Italian names likely to be linked.Under the rule of the Pozzo family, the Hornets have opted for Gianfranco Zola and then Sannino, with the latter replacing the former after he left the job in December last year.A brief statement from the club said: “Watford FC wishes to thank Beppe Sannino for all that he has achieved while with the club, wishes him well for his future in football and extends an open invitation to Beppe and his family as guests of the Hornets at any future matches.”last_img read more

Mbappe fires France to World Cup quarters

first_imgEmbattled Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli had promised an “aggressive, attacking” approach from his side.But his fears over the superior speed of the French strikers were quickly proven right when Mbappe sprinted from his own half until he was hauled down by Marcos Rojo.Antoine Griezmann coolly converted the 13th minute penalty.But Mbappe’s PSG teammate Angel Di Maria levelled with a 41st minute long-range stunner and the South Americans were back in what was proving a superb match.Argentina took a 2-1 lead minutes after the restart when Gabriel Mercado clipped Messi’s low curling shot past Hugo Lloris, but that was Messi’s only real contribution in the match.Defender Benjamin Pavard’s stunning half-volley levelled for France on 57 minutes and as Argentina lost hope, Mbappe struck in the 64th and 68th minute to seal France’s place in the last eight.The last time France lost a World Cup game after taking the lead was in 1982, against Poland.Argentine had calls for first-half penalties too when the ball skimmed Samuel Umtiti’s arm, then when Messi tumbled as he was played into the area, were waved away.France had looked in control, but the stakes changed dramatically minutes before the interval.Cristian Pavon, on the left flank, found Di Maria unmarked 25 yards out from goal and he unleashed a thunderbolt that flew past a diving Lloris and into the top right-hand corner.Di Maria, one of several Albiceleste players criticised for underperfoming in their group games, made amends by setting up Argentina’s second.Billed as Messi’s chance to reignite stuttering Argentina’s hopes, the thrilling last 16 clash in Kazan instead saw 19-year-old Paris Saint-Germain star Mbappe grab the limelight as he became the youngest player since Pele in 1958 to score two goals in a World Cup match.He twisted and turned on the left side of the area to win a free kick, after Pavard’s tug, and when Banega’s free kick was cleared by Pogba it fell to Messi.His curled shot looked innocuous, but Mercado stuck a foot out to wrong-footed Lloris.Minutes later, Les Bleus were level, Pavard matching Di Maria’s effort with a superbly-struck half-volley with the outside of his right boot that spun past Argentina ‘keeper Franco Armani after Blaise Matuidi’s wayward cross found the Stuttgart defender.Despite a late consolation for Argentinan when Sergio Aguero headed Messi’s superb long cross past Lloris in stoppage time, Mbappe had already well and truly stolen the show.When Matuidi’s shot was blocked just after the hour, Mbappe was on hand to restore France’s lead with a low shot past Armani.Four minutes later the teenager ran on to Olivier Giroud’s perfect pass on a France counter to drive it low past Armani and spark mass celebrations on the French bench.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Kyllian Mbappe celebrates one of his two goals during the World Cup Round of 16 match against Argentina on June 30, 2018.

Schweinsteiger expects tears on his Bayern farewell

first_img0Shares0000Bastian Schweinsteiger trained with Chicago Fire in Munich on Sunday to prepare for his farewell match at Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena on Tuesday, when he will play a half for both clubs. © dpa/AFP / Sven HoppeBERLIN, Germany, Aug 27 – Bastian Schweinsteiger expects to shed a few tears on Tuesday on his final Bayern Munich appearance during his testimonial against current club Chicago Fire.The 34-year-old former Germany captain will play a half each for Bayern and Chicago at the Allianz Arena (1830 GMT). It will be his farewell appearance in Munich, having quit his childhood club for Manchester United in 2015 after 17 years and a total of 20 titles with Bayern.Schweinsteiger wept when he received a standing ovation on his 121st and final appearance for Germany in a 2-0 friendly win over Finland two years ago in Moenchengladbach.More tears are to be expected in Munich on Tuesday.“I somewhat underestimated that when I retired from the national team,” admitted Schweinsteiger on his return to Munich.“I felt lots of emotions, you have so many images in your head and let yourself be led by that.“There are already so many memories coming back up.“It was a great time, Bayern is always in my heart, but I know it’ll be emotional for me.”It was obvious from the huge smile on his face at Bayern’s training ground that he is enjoying being back in Munich.Former Germany captain Bastian Schweinsteiger was awarded the Bavarian Order of Merit on Sunday on his return to Munich ahead of his testimonial at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday. © dpa/AFP / Sven HoppeOn Sunday, he was awarded the Bavarian Order of Merit at a civil ceremony, where Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Soeder described the 2014 World Cup winner as a ‘living legend’.“I’m overwhelmed, I accept the medal on behalf of all Bayern fans – many of whom deserve this,” said Schweinsteiger humbly.The football star from the Upper Bavarian town of Kolbermoor, near the border with Austria, said he missed his homeland.“Friends and family, the mountains – and the Kaiserschmarrn (a Bavarian dessert),” are the things he misses most living in Chicago with his wife, former tennis star Ana Ivanovic, and their baby son.Schweinsteiger made more than 500 appearances for Bayern, who he joined as a 13-year-old.His last home appearance in the famous red shirt was when he scored in a 2-0 win against Mainz in May 2015, before moving to United two months later, and he has not been back to the Allianz Arena since.“At the time, I did not have the chance to say goodbye, so I’m very grateful that FC Bayern are giving me a farewell match,” he said.“It’s great to be back here.“There’s a real feeling of being at home in Munich and seeing the people in the city again.”Bastian Schweinsteiger smiles as he meets fans on Sunday during a training session with Chicago Fire in Munich ahead of his testimonial on Tuesday against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, when he will play a half each for both clubs. © dpa/AFP / Sven HoppeHis popularity has its price and Schweinsteiger can not walk the streets of Munich “without a cap and sunglasses”, unlike in Chicago where his wife “is recognised more than me – she’s a bit prettier too,” he added with a grin.Despite recent results — Chicago sit second from bottom in the Eastern Conference of the North American MLS league — Schweinsteiger is enjoying playing in the States.“I feel good physically, it’s fun to drive to training each day and I play every game,” he said and hopes to play another few seasons for Fire, who he joined in 2017 after 18 months at Old Trafford.“I’ll take things from year to year.”0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Six contenders for PL Manager of the Year: shock winner?

first_img 6 6 6 Jose Mourinho has won the Premier League for the third time in what is his second spell in charge of Chelsea.But does winning the league in such a comfortable manner mean he is an automatic choice for Manager of the Year?Some may argue that, should Nigel Pearson keep Leicester up, he should be given the honour or Ronald Koeman for his work at Southampton when nobody gave them hope of staying up.Here, talkSPORT looks at the contenders for the top award, so let us know who you think should win it. 5. Mark Hughes: Stoke manager who has spent little but looking to finish in the top 10 – Hughes’ reputation took a battering when he was at QPR, but he has done his job quietly and effectively at Stoke. Of the Premier League clubs last summer they spent the least and a top 10 finish is likely. 6 3. Ronald Koeman: Southampton manager who has defied expectations and spent a great deal of time in the Premier League top four – Before the start of the season a lot of fans outside of St Mary’s tipped Southampton for relegation given that Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert were among the players sold for big money, while manager Mauricio Pochettino left for the Tottenham job. However, the club have bought well and Koeman has overseen a strong campaign where the club, as late as March, were still in the Premier League top four. A very impressive season. 6. Jose Mourinho: Chelsea manager and Premier League champion – His Chelsea team were ruthless this season as they marched their way to the title, having spent most of the campaign at the top of the table. Amazingly, Mourinho has not won a Manager of the Month award. Defender Branislav Ivanovic told the London Evening Standard: “I don’t know how that [not winning Manager of the Month] happened. But it doesn’t matter if he won one or not, for sure he is the best manager this season.” 1. Nigel Pearson: Leicester City manager who may be about to pull off a great escape – Who deserves the Premier League’s Manager of the Season when the LMA’s annual award is given out at the end of May? Here, talkSPORT looks at the contenders, one of which must be Leicester boss, Pearson. He was presented with the monthly gong in April following four straight victories against West Ham, West Brom, Swansea and Burnley and now the Foxes are on course to avoid relegation when two months ago they looked certain for the drop. 4. Garry Monk: Swansea manager who has broken the club’s record points total and still chasing European football – Swansea lost main goal threat Wilfried Bony in January, but that has not affected them and under Monk the football has been very easy on the eye, with Bafetimbi Gomis popping up with important goals. In addition they have not spent a lot of money, but recruited wisely and the Welsh club are still in the hunt to qualify for the Europa League via their league finish. They are also only the third team in Premier League history to win both home and away against Arsenal, following Man United, West Ham and Chelsea. 6 2. Louis van Gaal: Man United manager who is slowly restoring pride at Old Trafford – Van Gaal took over at Man United following a poor season under David Moyes while his reign also started slightly later as a result of the Netherlands’ World Cup campaign where Van Gaal was in charge of his national team. There was no European football for United this term, but the Dutchman has managed to steady the Old Trafford ship and in his debut season has guided the club back into the Champions League. With a full pre-season and the right players being bought should make them contenders next year. 6last_img read more

CAN’T PAY, COULDN’T BE BOTHERED TO PAY! DONEGAL SNUB TO HOUSEHOLD CHARGE

first_imgAN astonishing 90% of Donegal households still haven’t paid the €100 household charge – even though there’s just two weeks left to the deadline.And the County Council, tasked with collecting the money by the Government, is warning that homeowners will NOT get a bill.One well-known Co Donegal solicitor told donegaldaily.com that this method of collecting payment “may not be sound in law.” He added: “The Government is relying on media publicity to get this message out and in many circumstances there will be people who do not know about it and if they do not know about it, they cannot pay it.“There may well be a legal loophole left in this. Time will tell.”Just 14% of people nationwide have so far paid up.Meanwhile those opposed to the tax, water taxes and septic tank taxes have erected a “Greedy Pigs” sign on the road from Gaoth Dobhair to Dunlewey.   CAN’T PAY, COULDN’T BE BOTHERED TO PAY!

DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE REPORTS: LIFFORD HOOPS CONTINUE TITLE PUSH

first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionMilford United 1 Kilmacrennan Celtic 2 Kilmacrennan won this local derby thanks to two late goals from Eddie Doherty in a game switched to Rathmullan. Milford took the lead after 5 minutes when Paul Shields headed home from a Cathal Mc Gettigan corner. Milford playing with the wind had several chances to extend their lead but failed to find the net. Kilmacrennan pushed forward in the second half and their best chance fell to Eddie Doherty only for Caolan Mc Gettigan to save well. Milford broke with great chances falling to Brendan Murray, Cathal Mc Gettigan and TJ Evesson who failed to convert. Referee Joe McHughLifford Celtic 3 Lagan Harps 0Lifford Celtic maintained their title push with victory over Lagan Harps at Greenbrae on Sunday afternoon. Despite winning well in the end up it took the Lifford lads until after the break before they settled into their familiar style of play. Lagan Harps came to Greenbrae bearing little in the line of gifts for the title chasers. In the first half especially they battled for every ball and had they reached the interval level it would have being no injustice. Damien Patton spoiled those thoughts however for the Lagan men. After thirty minutes he stormed in undetected at the back post to connect with a Lifford free kick that had been floated from the left wing. Needing to find a second goal Celtic were having to be cautious in their approach. Fifteen minutes into the second half JP Malley found the net to settle the nerves. Eight minutes later he did it again, this time after Colin Carlin had made a right wing run to the byline before cutting the ball back across the Lagan box where Malley was lurking. The striker made no mistake from close range. Lagan competed till the final whistle but Lee White wasn’t troubled in the Lifford net. Kilmacrennan Celtic will be the visitors to Greenbrae next Sunday as Lifford play their game in hand before the league reaches it’s climax the following week. Referee: Patrick Martin.Glenea United 4 Castlefin Celtic 0 Glenea completed their home league programme with this hard earned victory over a youthful Castlefin side. The border side played with the aid of the strong wind in the 1st half and started well but were unable to create any clear cut chances. As the half progressed the home side came more into the game and started to look dangerous but could just not find the correct final ball. With Glenea looking for the points to continue their league challenge they started the 2nd half well. Michael Barry opened the scoring on 46 minutes when he was on hand to knock the ball home from close range after good work by Sean McBride down the right. Glenea extended their lead on 48 minutes when Ciaran Gallagher’s long clearance was controlled by Michael Barry who saw his shot well saved but Lee O’Brien was on hand to slot home the rebound. Glenea got the 3rd goal on 56 minutes when Michael Barry reacted quickest to a poor clearance and he fired home. Glenea completed the scoring on 75 minutes when Sean Coll’s header from a corner was forced home by Paul Sweeney. Best for Glenea were Padraig McGee and Ryan McFadden, while it was a good effort from a young Castlefin team. Referee: Mick Lagan.Glencar Inn Division TwoDeele Harps 3 Tullyvinney Rovers 1It was a case of going through the motions for Deele Harps when Tullyvinney Rovers were the visitors to the Athletic Grounds on Saturday. With the League title already secured they were playing to remain the only unbeaten side in the Donegal League. A victory by three goals to nil retained this statistic and Tullyvinney Rovers must be commended on putting on a competitive display.League table for Brian McCormick Sports Premier LeagueTeamPlayedWonLostDrawnGoals ForGoals AgainstGoal DiffPointsGlenea United17123241202138Lifford Celtic FC16114132171534Rathmullan Celtic1795342202230Milford United FC169613125628Kilmacrennan Celtic FC168623023726St Catherines FC176833030021Gweedore Celtic176921730-1320Dunkineely Celtic FC165743536-119Lagan Harps FC1761011941-2219Castlefin Celtic1701431449-353League table for Watson Hire Division OneTeamPlayedWonLostDrawnGoals ForGoals AgainstGoal DiffPointsDonegal Town FC18133240192141Curragh Athletic FC18111650123839Cranford FC18106243251832Cappry Rovers1896339251430Eany Celtic FC189633426830Drumoghill FC188823233-126Keadue Rovers FC186663332124Ballybofey United FC183872136-1516Arranmore United1831411749-3210Raphoe Town1811521567-525League table for CT Ball Division TwoTeamPlayedWonLostDrawnGoals ForGoals AgainstGoal DiffPointsGweedore United FC18143161194243Kerrykeel 71 FC18134153223140Bonagee United FC18124244321238Whitestrand United FC18117044261833Dunlewey Celtic1895441311031Glenree United FC188643531428Letterbarrow Celtic FC1861112351-2819Convoy Arsenal FC1831322950-2111Drumbar FC1811252253-318Copany Rovers FC1811342562-377League table for Old Orchard Inn Division OneTeamPlayedWonLostDrawnGoals ForGoals AgainstGoal DiffPointsErne Wanderers FC15102344222233Ramelton Mariners FC158343527828Fintown Harps AFC1574435231225Glenea United157442718925Glencar Celtic156453734323Castlefin Celtic155822733-617Mulroy Celtic155912829-116Kilmacrennan Celtic FC152942050-3010Gweedore Celtic8071825-171League table for Glencar Inn Division TwoTeamPlayedWonLostDrawnGoals ForGoals AgainstGoal DiffPointsDeele Harps FC15140152114143Donegal Town FC Reserves1585237241326Downtown United FC157352520526Keadue Rovers FC167633333024Milford United FC157712741-1422Glenree United FC155642321219Gweedore United FC154922635-914Cranford FC Reserves153751627-1114Tullyvinney Rovers1511311845-274DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE FIXTURESSATURDAY 27-4-2013                    K.O. 2p.m. (Unless Stated)Glencar Inn Division TwoCranford United Reserves                  v                      Gweedore United Reserves Glenree United Reserves                    v                      Deele HarpsTullyvinney Rovers                            v                      Donegal Town ReservesMilford United Reserves                    v                      Downtown UnitedSUNDAY  28-4-2013                         K.O. 2 p.m. (Unless Stated)Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionMilford United                                   v                      Dunkineely CelticLifford Celtic                                      v                      Kilmacrennan CelticDivision One / Division Two – Play-OffBallybofey United                              v                      Bonagee United @ Diamond Park, BallyareDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE REPORTS: LIFFORD HOOPS CONTINUE TITLE PUSH was last modified: April 21st, 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:DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE REPORTS: LIFFORD HOOPS CONTINUE TITLE PUSHlast_img read more
