Boxers’ House of Shame

first_imgThe national boxing gym is next to the Sports Commission, on Broad Street in Monrovia. A signboard announces to the visitor what is done there with significant finality: BABY JOE’S HOUSE OF PAIN.While the signboard evidently remembers one of Liberia’s boxing coaches, it nonetheless emphasizes, after a brief visit to the gym, what is all wrong in developing an effective boxing program to complement the country’s youth who are bent on improving on their image as boxers.“We train every day and every year,” commented welterweight George Henchman, “but nothing good happens to boxing and as a result it is dragged to the ground.”While Henchman’s statement tells in clear terms the ugly fate of boxing in Liberia, he hopes for proper material and financial support this year and what cannot be lost on us is the failure of the Liberia Boxing Association to have joined the fight against Ebola virus disease due to current ineffective administration.“If no one is interested in boxing,” Henchman told the Daily Observer during unannounced visit yesterday morning, “we are still here and praying that something positive could happen this year.” Though he has only hope of any positive change, sports officials have complained that the insidious Ebola virus disease has affected Liberia’s progress in several fronts, including support to sports.Reports have also indicated that even the U$500,000.00 previously allocated to the national soccer team, Lone Star, is halved, leading LFA officials to express challenges that are inherent in the team’s progress.Though boxing, like track and field, taekwondo, lawn tennis and table tennis, never received adequate financial support from past governments and that unfairness has continued to today, the brazen neglect of boxing has made many a boxing fan to wonder why.Sports officials are unable to give reason about the poor financial support to boxing, along with others considered as minor sports. And this suggests the clear neglect of those responsible to ensure that boxing too gains respect in Liberia.To imagine that Liberia as a nation does not have a boxing ring for its boxers to practice their sport is to question the responsibility of those charged to develop the sport. For the last three years, boxing has remained dormant in Liberia in every aspect of the game. “There used to be many boxers here,” Henchman told the Observer, “now they have all abandoned training.” Except those diehard ones, Henchman noted, who still hope something good could come in the end. Hence, the aptly described ‘House of Shame’ that at least should awaken somebody at the Ministry of Youth & Sports to provide some answers to boxer George Henchman and his colleagues about why the repeated neglect of boxing. And for God’s sake, don’t blame Ebola for this one, please!!!“We’re in a new year,” Henchman said, “and we don’t know if someone will listen to us and get us a boxing ring and other necessary gear.” And it is a wonder if the Ministry of Youth & Sports knows about the future of boxing in 2015.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

CSO, Liberia Wash, to Support WaterAid

first_imgA civil society organization, Liberia Wash Consortium and SHALOM, have pledged support to WaterAid Liberia for the launching of the ‘Healthy Start’ program, which is intended to serve as a fundamental building block of a prosperous and healthy society in Liberia.The program, which was held Tuesday in Careysburg, brought together CSOs, government officials as well as WaterAid partners.Mrs. Pate K. Chon, who spoke on behalf of all WaterAid partners, said they would continue to advocate for access to safe drinking water, improved sanitation and hygiene in all health institutions in the country.Mrs. Chon said SHALOM and all other partners will remain committed to Liberia’s development by contributing to more success stories, to make the country a better place for everyone.“We will provide WASH in schools and healthcare institutions in all parts of the country, in partnership with the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education,  through local community structures, to ensure that better hygiene practices are observed,” she assured.All partner organizations would also help to persuade the Liberian government to improve reproductive, maternal, and newborn and child health in the country, which is paramount to sustaining healthy life for the general population. Mrs. Chon noted, “The Healthy Start program launched by WaterAid Liberia for the next four years will improve health and nutrition of newborn babies and children and prevent the next crisis by giving the children in school a healthy start.“The right to clean water and hygiene is a right to life,” she added.She stressed that proper hygiene, which was promoted during the recent Ebola epidemic, is falling away.“As we arrive at the tail end of the Ebola epidemic, we must not forget what brought us here and the lessons we have learnt should be stamped on our national consciousness. These lessons define the situation of Liberia at present,” Mrs. Chon indicated. Also speaking, the team leader of WaterAid Liberia and Sierra Leone, Chuchu Selma, said water, sanitation and hygiene services are fundamental to human survival and as such they must be given priority as a human rights issue.He added, “Healthy Start is WaterAid’s four-year advocacy priority that focuses on improving the health and nutrition of newborn babies and children. We will do this by advocating for access to water, sanitation and hygiene promotion to be integrated into health policies locally and nationally.”“We also plan to do this in collaboration with the MOH, through local organizations working within the health and WASH sector,” he emphasized.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Man United ace could be dropped following World Cup struggles

first_img De Gea’s biggest error came in Portugal’s draw with Spain, when he failed to save Cristiano Ronaldo’s shot Despite finishing first, Spain have found life hard in Russia, with just one win from their opening three matches; that came against Iran, via a very fortuitous Diego Costa goal.The biggest issues Hierro – placed in charge following Julen Lopetegui’s sacking on the eve of the tournament – will have to solve are based in Spain’s half of the pitch.La Roja’s attacking form has been good enough – six goals scored in three games – but they have looked woeful in the defensive phase of the game.Portugal put three past Spain, before Morocco breached Hierro’s backline twice on Monday evening.De Gea, the goalkeeper, has faced six shots in Russia, and has saved only a single one, in the 2-2 draw with Morocco. 3 De Gea has already conceded five goals at the World Cup And, according to AS, Hierro is going to use training this week in an attempt to fix Spain’s problems, with his thoughts reportedly turning to Kepa Arrizabalaga of Athletic Club as a potential replacement for De Gea.It is written that ‘the Manchester United goalkeeper’s credit is exhausted’, and Spain’s defence are said to have a lack of confidence in De Gea. Iago Aspas scored for Spain to secure top spot center_img 3 3 David de Gea could be dropped by Spain as manager Fernando Hierro looks to solve La Roja’s defensive issues.The 2010 world champions booked their place in the last 16 by finishing top of Group B on goals scored, finishing level on points with runners-up Portugal. Kepa, 23, has emerged as one of the finest glovesman in Europe since breaking into Athletic’s first-team, and Real Madrid were in talks to sign the youngster last season having deciding to buy him rather than De Gea.However, Kepa extended his contract with Athletic rather than move to the Bernabeu.And now, with De Gea struggling on the international stage, Kepa could be handed the chance to show off his talents at the World Cup.talkSPORT will be with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network.last_img read more

‘Jose Mourinho is doing a great job at Man United’… says Noel Gallagher

first_img Gallagher celebrates Man City’s Premier League title win last season with manager Pep Guardiola “They’re saying Jose is going to go, but the only thing that is keeping him in the job is the fact there’s nobody there to take it.“Zidane? He doesn’t speak English – it would be chaos. That club is in a chaotic state.“The thing about Mourinho, is that he gets a lot of flak for telling it how it is. He’s digging the players out, but they’re not playing well, none of them.”Rock legend Gallagher also said he believes Mourinho is paying the price for unwisely splashing the cash in the transfer market, while City have made a host of shrewd investments.“He’s spent a lot of money, but he just hasn’t bought very well,” the former Oasis star added.“The one thing about City is the players we have bought, you look at Leroy Sane, for instance, when we signed him we all thought, ‘Really? All that money?’“Then there’s that famous footage of the guys on Sky Sports when we paid all that money for Kevin de Bruyne, and they were all shaking their heads and saying it was crazy money for him.“Someone at the club has got vision. Mourinho is feeling the heat at United Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane are two of the Premier League’s brightest young players “Bernando Silva, Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling, John Stones, Kyle Walker – they were all big money signings but all turned out to be brilliant, massive players for us.“United, on the other hand, seem to be just buying big money players without a plan.“I think the thing that separates Liverpool, Tottenham and City from United, is that they all seem to have a plan, but United seem to be just scattergun-buying players.“They don’t seem to be a team at the moment.”Listen back to Noel Gallagher talking Man City and Man United on talkSPORT above! 3center_img 3 3 And, when joining the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast in the studio on Friday, he couldn’t help aim a barb at Mourinho when asked about the Red Devils and their boss.“It’s unbelievable at Manchester United,” he said. “I think he’s doing a great job though!“They’re not playing well, none of them, and it’s great to see.“It’s really, really great to see for City fans, particularly as the United fans had that banner up for 30 years about us not winning a trophy.“Every day that goes past and that club is in turmoil is a great day.“They’ve lived through that period Liverpool went through, when you couldn’t see them not winning the league.“But they’re floundering at the minute. There’s no plan. Diehard Manchester City fan Noel Gallagher has had a cheeky dig at Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, saying the under-fire Portuguese is doing a ‘great job’ in charge at Old Trafford.Mourinho goes into the weekend majorly under the cosh, with reports claiming anything other than a victory at home against winless Newcastle United will cost him his job.City boss Pep Guardiola, meanwhile, is heading into a top-of-the-table clash against Liverpool with the prospect of opening up a three-point lead at the Premier League summit.Gallagher, like all Citizens supporters, appears to be enjoying City and United’s dramatic change of fortunes immensely.last_img read more

SINN FEIN DONEGAL CALL ON MINISTER TO VISIT JOBSBRIDGE WEBSITE ‘FARCE’

first_imgSinn Fein in Donegal has called on Minister Joan Burton to view the Jobsbridge website which they have described as a “farce.”Sinn Fein has called on Minister Joan Burton to visit Jobsbridge website.Local Sinn Féin Youth representative Lauren Walsh said the website provides a situation whereby so-called opportunities are being promoted by the Government under the guise of internships.The West Donegal woman said “The Jobsbridge website offers nothing but dressed-up discrimination as a means by which vacancies can be cheaply filled at the expense of qualified and hardworking young people.” “There are currently 49 positions advertised under the internship scheme in Donegal, including solicitors, office administrators and IT managers.”She said it is clear that these are not designed as work experience opportunities but replacements for full time jobs.“This Government is insulting young people by asking us to work for an extra €50 on top of a social welfare payment which has been slashed for under-25’s in the latest austerity budget. How do they expect young people to survive, never mind prosper in their own community?”“I have watched many of my friends emigrate to Australia, England and Canada, because there is no meaningful way for them to make a decent living at home. Jobbridge is not the answer to this crisis. Real, meaningful jobs for young people are.” Ms Walsh said quickly scrolling through the vacancies on offer under this scheme in Donegal, it is clear to anyone that the scheme is not fit for purpose.“For example an advertisement for an Administrative Clerk position based in Bundoran offers the intern formal/informal training in the use of MS Excel & Spreadsheets among other things. However, in order to qualify for the internship a prospective intern must have completed an ECDL course, of which MS Excel and Spreadsheets are a central component. What is there to learn then? Where then is the 30 hours a week training going?“Some employers are using the JobBridge scheme to avoid paying people to undertake the standard functions on which their business and profits depend. And the design of the scheme facilitates this outrageous exploitation.“The JobsBridge scheme is a giant disincentive to job creation. Why would an employer create a real job when they can exploit cheap labour courtesy of the government? The young people of Donegal deserve better than this joke of a scheme. It is high time this Government put an end to the tokenist gestures and engaged in some real action to address youth unemployment.” SINN FEIN DONEGAL CALL ON MINISTER TO VISIT JOBSBRIDGE WEBSITE ‘FARCE’ was last modified: January 17th, 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:donegalJoan BurtonJOBSBRIDGESinn Feinlast_img read more
