MoH Turns Over Ebola Dead to Internal Affairs

first_imgThe Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) has turned over responsibility for the handling of Ebola dead to the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA).Scores of family and community members calling the hotline numbers say they are not getting through; and those who are getting through say they have to wait for hours.Upon receiving reports that four bodies suspected to be Ebola victims had been found in Bo Waterside and needed to be removed, the Observer contacted Minister of Health, Dr. Walter T. Gwenigale.The Minister of Health told the Observer that his primary obligation is to the living, not the dead. Overwhelmed with too many other pressing issues, he could not shoulder the burden of the dead, he said. He told this publication that he has therefore asked the President, Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, to turn that aspect over to the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA).This information was confirmed by a senior official at the MIA, who said the ministry is doing the best it can to handle the bodies but is struggling to cope, especially with those infected byEbola.”We are overwhelmed,” the official said. “Burial is a technical matter, and we only have one technical team leader trained by MSF.”Medicins Sans Frontiers (MSF) also trains Red Cross technicians.The official said the MIA took 25 bodies up to Tubmanburg in Bomi County for burial Saturday, August 2, but were rejected by the county’s leadership and people. The bodies had to be brought back to Monrovia. The MIA is now attempting to bury the bodies in Johnsonville. The body of a man from Sime Darby’s oil palm plantation in Bomi, who had gone on a visit to Cape Mount and died, also needs to be retrieved. The MIA says it has no technical capacity for pick up, bagging, spraying and burial of dead bodies, especially those from Ebola. The Ministry says it also needs goggles, gloves, overgarments and masks.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Lukaku, Rashford send Man United into last 16

first_imgAfter Saturday’s 3-1 win at Arsenal, victory at Old Trafford sustained United’s momentum ahead of Sunday’s crucial derby showdown with runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.In avoiding defeat, United established a new club record of 40 home games unbeaten in all competitions, their last loss on home turf being a 2-1 defeat by City in September last year.With Basel winning 2-0 away to Benfica in the other group game, CSKA had to content themselves with a place in the knockout phase of the Europa League while the Swiss side went through.Mourinho made six changes to the team that had beaten Arsenal, handing a rare start to forgotten left-back Luke Shaw, and the low-key feel was only exacerbated when the Champions League music failed to play prior to kick-off.Restored to the United attack in place of Anthony Martial, Rashford procured a couple of early chances.He scuffed a shot against the post from Lukaku’s pass and then, after Juan Mata had brilliantly brought down a lofted Daley Blind pass and cut the ball back, drew a one-handed save from Igor Akinfeev.Making his first start since April, Shaw got forward well from his left wing-back role, stinging Akinfeev’s palms with a volley and narrowly failing to pick out Rashford with a low cross.But CSKA looked purposeful when they had opportunities to attack and after Vasili Berezutski and Vitinho had shot over, they took the lead right on half-time. And in curious fashion.– Akinfeev wrong-footed –Romelu Lukaku in action against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League. PHOTO/DailyMailMario Fernandes cut the ball back from the byline on the right and Vitinho’s stabbed effort struck Alan Dzagoev on the back and bounced into the net.At first glance Dzagoev appeared to be offside, but replays showed he had been played onside by Blind, who had slid off the pitch as he attempted to cut out Fernandes’s pass.Adding to the confusion, UEFA initially credited the goal to Dzagoev, only to then award it to Vitinho.United quickly set about restoring parity in the second half, Rashford working Akinfeev with a rasping drive from a narrow angle, and in the 64th minute they levelled.From the inside-left channel, Paul Pogba used his left foot to play a raking pass in behind the CSKA defence and Lukaku held off Viktor Vasin to toe a close-range volley past a wrong-footed Akinfeev.It was only the Belgium striker’s second goal in his last 13 appearances.The visitors barely had time to kick off before finding themselves behind as Mata’s lobbed pass set Rashford scuttling into the box to plant a left-foot shot inside Akinfeev’s left-hand post.Mourinho used the opportunity to hand game time to youth-team graduates Scott McTominay and Axel Tuanzebe, both of whom came on as late substitutes.But there was almost a sting in the tail for the hosts after Dzagoev stole into space and forced Sergio Romero — deputising in goal for Emirates Stadium hero David de Gea — to save with his legs.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United’s Marcus rashford (r) celebrates his goal with Luke Shaw.

Official: The Premier League’s TOP 10 most creative players in 2014!

first_img 7 7 7 7 3. Christian Eriksen – 71 chances created – Click the arrow for more – Arguably the best player at Tottenham Hotspur, things haven’t been easy for Christian Eriksen since his switch from Ajax. It is therefore perhaps a little surprising to see the Dane ranking so highly in this list and a further example of his depth of talent. =6. Willian, Raheem Sterling, Leighton Baines – 64 chances created – Click the arrow for more – It is testament to Leighton Baines’ attacking ability that he is alongside two wingers, but that is not to understate the talents of Willian and Raheem Sterling. The trio have created 64 goalscoring chances in 2014 alone. Despite being very much a squad player, Willian’s total is particularly impressive. 7 As the calendar year draws to a close, awards season is upon us, with fans and organisations starting to list the best players of the past 12 months.Goals tend to rule the roost in this respect, but who have been the most creative players over this period?talkSPORT decided to take a look at the Premier League’s most creative players of the last year, and the results are a little surprising.Click the arrow to see who features.?*Stats correct up to and including fixtures on 02/12/14 7 7 4. Santi Cazorla – 67 chances created – Click the arrow for more – Arsenal’s little magician was at his creative best during the Gunners’ recent victory over West Brom. When he is on the pitch he is constantly looking to create and that is reflected in his 67 goalscoring chances made during the past year alone. =10. Steven Gerrard and Jesus Navas – 57 chances created so far in 2014! Click the arrow to see which players have been even more creative this calendar year… – We kick off with two strong performers of the 2013/14 season – Steven Gerrard and Jesus Navas. Both experienced contrasting fortunes in 2014, but their impacts of their respective teams cannot be understated. Both have been relatively quiet during the current campaign, but that looks to be changing with Gerrard in particular starting to show glimpses of his former self after scoring against Leicester City recently. 9. David Silva – 63 chances created – Click the arrow for more – Arguably Man City’s best player last year, the little Spaniard was largely at the heart of everything good about the Premier League champions. City have missed his creativity since he sustained injury. 5. Samir Nasri – 66 chances created – Click the arrow for more – Perhaps one of Man City’s most undervalued performers, the Frenchman has enjoyed a strong 2014. Adding a Premier League winner’s medal to his trophy cabinet, Nasri has carried his good form into the current campaign. =1. Eden Hazard and Stewart Downing – 75 chances created – A mixed bag in top spot with one expected and one surprise inclusion. Yes, believe it or not, but Stewart Downing has been the Premier League’s joint most creative player over the last calendar year. The West Ham wideman has been impressive since moving to East London and rightfully justifies his place in this list, as does Chelsea hero Eden Hazard who has carried his imperious form into the current season.last_img read more

The City Airport Commission has agreed to commission a study – due in 60 days – on how to speed up the planned, seven-year phaseout of noisy, Stage 2 jets at the airport. The action gives neighbors good reason to hope that quieter times might soon be ahead. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who campaigned on a promise to eliminate the noisy aircraft, has embraced the plan. So, too, have airport neighbors, who must be heartened that, for once, their concerns are being taken seriously. Living near the nation’s busiest general-aviation airport, they have had to put up with jet noise and official indifference for years. The proof, of course, will be if the phaseout actually takes place within a few years. But the signs are promising, and the attention is welcome.last_img read more

BROTHER OF MAN INVOLVED IN GARDA DEATH APPEARS ON CATALOGUE OF DRIVING CHARGES

first_imgThe brother of a man involved in an incident in which a Garda was killed has appeared in court facing a catalogue of dangerous driving offences.Kevin Dunleavy leaving court. Pic by Northwest Newspix.Kevin Dunleavy appeared at Letterkenny District Court yesterday following an incident in which he led Gardai on a 25 km chase. Dunleavy’s brother Cathal served a jail sentence for an incident in which Garda Robbie McCallion died in Letterkenny in 2009.Cathal Dunleavy was released recently from prison after being jailed for five years for his part in the crime.Judge Paul Kelly was told that Kevin Dunleavy, 29, from Meentagh, Kerrykeel, has already been banned from driving for four times.The court was given a detailed version of the pursuit which happened on August 8th 2012.Gda Inspector Michael Harrison revealed how his officers had to take evasive action to avoid colliding with Dunleavy’s speeding car.The car reached speeds of 150kms per hour and even went onto the wrong side of the road on several occasions.Pursuing Gardai eventually stopped as they deemed it too dangerous to the public to continue.Even when Gardai attended Dunleavy’s house, he managed to speed off after he saw them waiting for him.Dunleavy had 69 previous convictions for motoring offences, and had been banned from driving on four occasions for periods of 18, 25, another 25 and 30 years.His solicitor Donagh Cleary said his client accepted his behaviour had been intolerable.But added that he hadn’t been before the court on road charges since 2010.A surprised Judge Kelly said “Well he wouldn’t have done as he has been banned from driving for 30 years”.However his solicitor said his client wads a changed man and wanted just another chance.He then asked that a probation report be carried out on the accused.The Judge added “I can’t see how I can deal with this case in any other way that by way of a custodial sentence.“It is the worst case of its kind by a considerable distance – the worst I’ve seen either in practice or on the bench – with someone driving like this over 25kms through small towns and villages and side roads.”The case was adjourned until June 18th.BROTHER OF MAN INVOLVED IN GARDA DEATH APPEARS ON CATALOGUE OF DRIVING CHARGES was last modified: April 17th, 2015 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:carCATHAL DUNLEAVYdonegalGarda Robbie McCallionjailKevin Dunleavylast_img read more
