Lion Regional Governor Visits JN David Hospital

first_imgThe Regional Governor of Lion International Diamilatou Sideri Akaangw on Tuesday started what the Lions and Lioness in Liberia referred to as an official visit to its supported institutions.Accordingly, Governor Akaangw visited James N. Davis, Jr., Hospital in Paynesville outside Monrovia.Mrs. Akaangw, according to the Liberian leadership of Lions and Lioness, is the District Governor for District 403 A-2, comprising of Benin, Togo, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Liberia and Sierra Leone.At a brief welcoming ceremony at the hospital, Medical Director Yatta Sackie Wapoe, reminded her guest that during the height of the crisis in Liberia, the hospital had limited resources to combat the deadly virus Ebola.Dr. Wapoe added that as a result of the international charity’s contributions in critically needed medical supplies, services at the overwhelmed hospital during the crisis were handled with greater care and success stories were achieved.“We must acknowledge that your gifts, especially the beds and other essential items made significant impact on the lives of our patients, staff and general workforce,” Dr. Wapoe asserted.Dr. Wapoe also intimated that the generous assistance provided during the difficult period of the Ebola fight in Liberia came at a time when medical supplies and other materials were greatly needed at the hospital.On the status of the JND Hospital, Dr. Wapoe indicated that it is a secondary medical institution under the auspices of the Ministry of Health.In remarks, some senior staff of the hospital told the visiting Lion Governor that when it was learned that the JND Hospital was earmarked for the charity’s assistance, it was a sigh of relief and blessing.“We want to thank God first and second to the Lion Club for such generous and timely assistance to us and the greater Liberian society,” the staff asserted. During the tour of the JND Hospital and the various wards, Governor Akaanghw was seen beaming with smiles as she intermittently posed questions to the medical director and staff on the overall operations of the hospital.Earlier, officials of Lion International Liberia disclosed that when the Liberian government was asked which medical facilities needed assistance, the JND and government hospitals in Robertsport, Grand Cape Mount County were mentioned.Accompanying Governor Akaanghw was Region Chairperson David Owusu Anokye of District 3-H, comprising of Ghana, Liberia and Sierra Leone and playing host to four zones and 19 clubs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

USC NOTEBOOK Misdirection aided Trojans

first_imgBest game? Carroll said defensive end Kyle Moore played his best game in college despite making just two tackles, probably because he intercepted a pass. “By far, Kyle’s best game for us,” Carroll said. But Moore offered a different view. “They graded me a B actually,” he said. Moore earned an A in the season opener against Idaho. “I’ve been waiting two years to do it,” Moore said. “I’m glad they have faith in me.” Joseph out Cornerback Vincent Joseph will not play this week after he bruised his larynx against Nebraska. “I was in pain,” Joseph said. “I couldn’t breathe. I was wheezing. My throat is real sore right now and I’ve got a crick in my neck.” Joseph will eat soft foods this week while he recovers. For the last year, Joseph also has dealt with his mom being hospitalized for congestive heart failure. “I’ve been dealing that,” he said. “I’m OK now because I know she’s getting good care.” Tailback C.J. Gable will return kickoffs this week. Carroll said Gable’s playing time at tailback will not be affected by returning kickoffs. Even if Joseph is healthy, Gable might return kickoffs because Carroll is concerned about fumbles. “Ball security is an issue,” Carroll said. “That’s a problem.” So sorry Carroll continued to take the blame for USC mistakenly choosing to kick off after losing the opening coin flip. That meant the Trojans also kicked off to start the second half. “I totally take responsibility for that, it got screwed up,” Carroll said. “That shouldn’t happen. That was a bad mistake on our part.” Apparently, all of USC’s captains went silent when the officials asked them if they were sure they wanted to kick off, unsure if it was the right decision. scott.wolf@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Scott Wolf STAFF WRITER Did Nebraska’s defense get psyched out by USC, creating those gaping holes that allowed the Trojans to rush for 313 yards? The Cornhuskers moved their defensive players liberally against Nevada, but kept them in place for a close victory over Wake Forest. Nebraska chose to keep its defensive players in place against USC, too, perhaps confident it could match up physically with the Trojans. It turned out to be a momentous decision. USC’s offense also put enough players in motion so that the Huskers might have been scared to stunt their defense, because it might create big holes. “If you move guys around, it might give (Nebraska) a reason to keep people in place because they don’t want to get caught out of position,” USC offensive line coach Pat Ruel said. It turned out Nebraska had nothing to lose, because its base defense was completely fooled by the Trojans’ misdirection. USC coach Pete Carroll referred to the holes as “colossal.” “We didn’t even have to throw,” Carroll said. last_img read more

Heat threatens lives in St. Louis blackout

first_imgST. LOUIS – In less than 24 hours this city got pummeled by a meteorological tag team: A sudden, unexpectedly rough storm that knocked out power to more than half a million customers, followed by near-triple-digit heat that made them suffer and sweat through the loss. Before daybreak Thursday, residents with flashlights went out in their pajamas to survey streets strewn with tree limbs, ripped off the night before by a storm that unleashed 80 mph-plus winds and torrential rains. More than 30 people were injured – mostly baseball fans at Busch Stadium – and three buildings collapsed. As the sun rose on the 97-degree day – which felt like 111 thanks to the humidity – they sat on stoops, seeking a breeze, to escape suffocating indoor heat. Gov. Matt Blunt declared a state of emergency, granting the mayor’s request to send in nearly 300 National Guard troops to take people to air-conditioned public buildings and to clear debris. One person, a 93-year-old woman, was found dead, one of at least 20 deaths around the nation attributed at least in part to a week-long heat wave. “We can’t overemphasize the danger of this heat,” Mayor Francis Slay said. “The longer the heat goes on and the power is out, the riskier it is.” The People’s Health Centers, which care for the uninsured in St. Louis, reported being inundated with patients complaining of heat stress, asthma and other heat-related maladies. Two clinics were without electricity. “We are beyond our maximum capacity,” spokeswoman Betty Randall said. The power loss also knocked out hundreds of traffic lights and shut down stores and gas stations. John Swapshire, 39, had to go to six stores to find a window fan. He bought a hardware store’s second-to-last one for $14.99. The other stores “were either closed because of the electricity or sold out,” said Swapshire, who has a gas-powered generator to compensate for his power loss. “I don’t think you can buy a cube of ice in all of St. Louis, either.” Police used public-address speakers from their squad cars to announce locations of community centers and other places designated as cooling centers. Volunteers went door to door, checking on people with no power to run fans or air conditioners.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Robinson ‘rattled’ his Motherwell players at half time

first_imgOn his half-time team talk, Robinson added: “I can’t tell you what I said but, listen, we have high standards. “We were waiting for something to happen rather than making it happen in the last 20 minutes of the first half. The decision-making on the ball could have been better in the 20 minutes before half-time.“But when you are able to take Louis Moult off and get three different goalscorers, then it shows we have a decent squad. We had more chances and there was some really good play in the last 20-25 minutes.“I keep saying to the boys, earn your right to play football, and they did that. They scrapped, battled and earned the right to pass the ball.”Things could easily have been even worse for Thistle. Goalkeeper Tomas Cerny received a yellow card for taking out Bowman before Moult’s free-kick when a red looked distinctly possible.They remain without a victory after eight Premiership games and looked a beaten team after the second goal.Manager Alan Archibald said: “I was disappointed with the manner we lost the game. The start and the final goal typified the whole performance.“The first one was a moment of madness from Tomas coming out that leads to the free-kick. But the biggest one was the third one, the corner where the ball falls to Motherwell three times in the box, and that’s hard to take.“We didn’t deal with the second balls and the ugly side of the game. That’s no disrespect to Motherwell, they did it very well and had quality in with it as well.” Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson gave his players a half-time “rattle” amid their emphatic 3-0 victory over Partick Thistle.Robinson gave an indication of his high standards after being disappointed that his side could not keep up their blistering start to the match.Peter Hartley gave them a seventh-minute lead when he netted after Louis Moult’s free-kick had come off the post and Motherwell were relentless with their pressure during the first quarter.They remained comfortable as the pace wore off – Trevor Carson never had a save to make all game – but Robinson was not satisfied at the midway stage. “We started really well, the first 20 minutes we came out the blocks really well,” he said. “We could have been two or three up and then we took the foot off the gas.“But Partick Thistle are a good side. Make no mistake, they have players that can hurt you. So I gave them a wee bit of a rattle at half-time. I wanted more from them. But the second-half performance was excellent.”Craig Tanner netted in the 56th minute and Ryan Bowman struck eight minutes from time after Hartley’s Cruyff-turn helped keep a corner alive.Motherwell were dominant throughout as they sealed their fifth win in seven matches and consolidated their place in the top six of the Scottish Premiership.last_img read more

New technology bringing work from Mexico back to Autoliv

first_imgAutoliv may have recently held a party to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its Tilbury plant, but the gift – which will bring new technology and return work previously sent to Mexico – is still to come.The manufacturer of inflatable curtain airbags that protect drivers and passengers from side-impact collisions is preparing for a brand new Phoenix laser cutter to be operational by next summer.The new technology was announced during an anniversary celebration on Saturday.Vanessa Stahlbrand, human resources manager at Autoliv in Tilbury, said older model cutters were previously located at the plant before this work was shifted to Mexico years ago.“It’s new technology, but the leadership has confidence in us and decided to award it to our facility,” she said. “We’re bringing it back.”Stahlbrand noted the newer model will be able to cut three-million curtain airbags a year and will create new jobs.She said Autoliv had a challenging year in 2018, “but we’ve been able to build a quality product and meet our targets.”“We’ve got amazing employees that help Autoliv products save over 30,000 lives per year,” she said.The Tilbury facility is on pace to produce 10.2-million airbags this year.Stahlbrand said if the Tilbury plant continues to perform well, the potential exists for another three new high-tech cutters to be installed in the plant in the future.She said the four laser cutters would match the plant’s weaving capacity to produce 12-million curtain airbags annually.eshreve@postmedia.comlast_img read more
