first_imgAt least four persons have now died from the arson incident which occurred late last month in the Nimba County bordering town called Loguatuo.One person died on the spot while three were on the critical list, but two days after they were taken to the hospital, one of them died, bringing the death toll to two.Last weekend the balance two who were very critical,  including the little child, died,  bringing the total death toll now to four.The location of the perpetrator, Arthur Duan, is  yet to be known since his escape after he set the house ablaze with children asleep in it.  Unconfirmed sources, however, suggest that he might have cross over into the  Ivory Coast.What actually led to this man set his children at blaze is yet to be established, but some unconfirmed report reaching the Daily Observer say that, the wife, Rebecca Duan, has been refusing the man in bed making the man to believe that she was engaged in extra marital affair.But police early quoted the lady of saying that since she and the man got together as husband and wife, the man had always been complaining about the children.An angry man, believed to be his late 30s, on the 26th of September 2014 set his house containing four children ablaze in the Nimba County bordering town of Loguatuo. The children were all rushed to the Ganta Hospital, but one subsequently died after a few days, while the other two were critical.The perpetrator, Arthur Duan,  met Rebecca Duan when she already had four children before they got married in April this year.On Saturday, 25th September 2014, the man bought gasoline while his wife was out sleeping with friend, sprinkled the gasoline on the belongings in the house, and while the children were in bed sleeping, locked the door on them and at about 1 a.m. on 26th September 2014, he set the house ablaze and then fled to an unknown destination.The screaming of the children and the blazing fire awoke the residents from bed and they began applying some rescue efforts, but because the door was locked, they find their way through the window and rescued the smaller children,  leaving one of children, 12 year-old boy, identified as Timothy Newah, losing his life instantly. Benda Luo, Mercy Luo and their youngest sister sustained serious injuries  and they later died at the hospital.The behavior of the man brought great shock among residents of Nimba and close relatives, with many saying Arthur Duan had never been in a fight with anyone before then.  This caused them to wonder what led him to such desperation this time.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe Senior Director of Health, Nutrition and Population Global Practices of the World Bank, Tim Evans, said Liberia is in the right direction combating the deadly Ebola virus and breaking the transmission.Speaking yesterday following a tour of Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs) and community visitations around Monrovia, Tim Evans said he is impressed with the ETUs and services delivered to patients, especially with Ebola survivors leaving the ETUs.According to him, the number of ETUs and patients being discharged were an indication that the response is moving in the right direction in containing the epidemic and saving more lives.The Bank’s Senior Director and health expert explained that his visit to District 7 (West Point) along with the community’s mobilizers was a good one, especially seeing patients who have recovered from Ebola and were integrated into the community as well as those families who lost members and were quarantined by the community for 21 days.“This kind of activity by the community is encouraging and supportive of the fight against Ebola.”He also stated that there is need to do more, particularly in strengthening the frontline of community care.“The World Bank will be looking at collaborating with the Government of Liberia to establish good community care units.  This will help strengthen the health system in Liberia,” he added.Mr. Evans said a strong healthcare system is the way forward in containing any disease, including Ebola, cholera and many other diseases.According to the health expert, “We need to seize this opportunity to strengthen the inadequate healthcare system, specifically building community healthcare capacity, building public healthcare libraries and the blood transfusion capacity. These are important health facilities that would uplift the healthcare system in Liberia.”He urged Liberians to maintain the steps taken in breaking the transmission of the virus and added that with assistance from other international partners, Ebola will pass away.A representative from the World Bank office in Liberia and Jacob Hughes, from Hughes Development Incorporated, accompanied Tim Evans on the tour.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img– Advertisement – CBL Governor Milton A. Weeks Milton Weeks, Executive Governor of the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL), yesterday told the Senate plenary that the total amount of Liberian dollars that has been in circulation since last year is around L$12.7 billion.Governor Weeks disclosed that as at yesterday, the Bank has L$12.7 billion in circulation, adding: “But of that amount, only roughly about L$1.5 billion has been circulating in the banks.”This, he said, means the CBL has about L$10.9 billion that is outside of the banks’ operations, “and we never see this amount coming in.”Weeks said that there was a lot of money outside the banking system; the bulk of which, he said, is referred to as “legacy money,” – old currency notes – which are not coming back into the system. This, he said, has limited the ability of CBL, “even if we have turned to the commercial banks to change the money.”Governor Weeks said, “Most of the money is not in the banking system. It is possible that most of this money that are outside of the banks, per our calculation, might not be there, because some might have almost been destroyed.”Weeks then told the lawmakers that the bank “believes that it also has an impact in terms of the amount of mutilated notes that people see in the system, because it just circulates outside of the bank; it does not come back into the system; it also has impact in terms of where we see sometimes what looks like influence on the exchange rate, because of the amount of money that is outside of the banking system; that is a possibility as well.”During yesterday’s hearing, which was also attended by a cross section of citizens, he told the Senators that the solution to what he has already explained to them would be given in the executive session.Weeks’ appearance yesterday was prompted by a communication from Nimba County Senator Thomas Grupee, who raised concern that even though the CBL was authorized by the Legislature to print new bank notes, and did so in the amount of L$5 billion, there was still heavy circulation of mutilated bank notes at the detriment of ordinary citizens and business places.Senator Grupee lamented that the situation is so bad that tellers at commercial banks sometimes almost engage into rough verbal exchanges with customers for the mutilated (tear-tear) money.Neither the Senate nor members of the CBL hierarchy that attended both the opening session and executive could comment on the outcome of the closed door session with Governor Weeks.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgCity crews can’t remove a cart unless it remains at the same location for 72 hours, nor can they levy impound fees if an owner picks up the cart within three days. The ordinance sidestepped these restrictions by holding businesses responsible. Since Glendale’s law took effect in January, officials have noted 94percent compliance by businesses. eugene.tong@dailynews.com (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! BURBANK – The City Council is close to enacting an ordinance designed to corral loose shopping carts and keep them off the streets. The panel voted unanimously Tuesday to introduce the ordinance, which allows local businesses a maximum of five carts off their premises for 24 hours. It will be adopted with a second reading Tuesday and enforced after six months. “It sends a strong signal to business owners operating with shopping carts that they would best serve themselves by preparing plans in how they would contain their carts,” Mayor Todd Campbell said after the hearing. The ordinance – based on a similar law already enacted in Glendale – lets businesses decide how to control their carts. Violators will be cited for a misdemeanor. The council also will review the five-cart limit and consider revisions 12 months after the ordinance takes effect. A few store owners and a California Grocer Association representative opposed the ordinance, but most of the public was in support. “We didn’t find much resistance that night,” Campbell said. “A lot of businesses are conscientious of their community. This sends them a message, but at the same time, they get it.” A city survey tallied more than 6,725 shopping carts within city limits, of which up to 10percent are abandoned at any given time. But a 1997 state law made it difficult for municipalities to impound loose carts. last_img read more

It’s still possible but we are far from being close.LONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 27 – Arsene Wenger admits Olivier Giroud could be allowed to leave Arsenal this month – but only if the club can sign an adequate replacement.Arsenal remain in the hunt for Borussia Dortmund frontman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after seeing a bid rejected for the Gabon international. Wenger has confirmed that a swap deal involving Giroud-plus cash for Aubameyang is not a possibility, yet the 31-year-old has plenty of admirers elsewhere.But unless Arsenal sign Aubameyang or another striker, then Giroud will be staying put at the Emirates in the transfer window.Wenger said: “We will still recruit someone, it’s possible. I cannot tell you more, nothing to announce today. At the moment we stay where we are. It’s still possible but we are far from being close.“I want Olivier to stay, I just told you that if nobody goes in, nobody goes out.“Maybe one or two young players [will go] out on loan somewhere, [but] the experienced side of the squad will remain the same unless somebody comes in.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

The Mountaineers came in as 11-point underdogs, but fought back from a 15-point deficit early in the second half. Pittsnogle made a 3 to cut Villanova’s lead to 76-74 with under 5 minutes left and Herber made two free throws to tie it. After Allan Ray missed a 3-pointer, Frank Young made a jumper to give West Virginia its first lead, 78-76, since the first half. Herber’s layup put West Virginia ahead 84-79 with 1:23 remaining and Pittsnogle’s hook shot made it 86-81. Foye made a 3-pointer to cut it to 86-84. A 3-pointer by Nardi got Villanova within 88-87, but Herber made two free throws and Nardi committed a crucial turnover. Patrick Beilein sealed it with a free throw. VILLANOVA, Pa. – West Virginia couldn’t make Villanova miss shots, so the Mountaineers forced the ball away from them. Joe Herber scored 23 points and Kevin Pittsnogle had 22, leading No. 24 West Virginia to a 91-87 upset over No. 3 Villanova on Sunday. Mike Gansey added 21 points as the Mountaineers (10-3, 2-0 Big East) beat their second top-10 opponent this season. Randy Foye had 24 points and Mike Nardi scored 23 for Villanova (10-1, 1-1). The Wildcats had 22 turnovers to offset a strong shooting performance. center_img Villanova shot 58 percent (29for 50) from the floor, including 57.7 percent from 3-point range (15 for 26), but had trouble once West Virginia started trapping on defense. “They’re the best in the conference at that,” Wildcats coach Jay Wright said. “Obviously, we’ve got to get better taking care of the ball. There’s two teams that have trapped us – the last two teams – and we’ve turned the ball over. “Even against Temple, another team that trapped a lot, we turned the ball over. Even when we’re winning, we’ve said we’re a work in progress. We still have to get a lot better. I think that was proven today.” West Virginia, which beat then-No. 7 Oklahoma 92-68 last month, has won eight in a row after losing three straight in late November. The Mountaineers avenged a 38-point loss at Villanova last year. “Coming here and beating them, it was tremendous,” Pittsnogle said. “They were hitting incredible shots, but we can shoot with anybody.” The Wildcats shot an astounding 71.4 percent (15 for 21) in the first half, including 76.9 percent (10 for 13) from 3-point range, to take a 46-37 lead. Foye was 2 for 8 during the first half, while his teammates made all 13 of their shots. But West Virginia made key defensive adjustments early in the second half after Nardi hit consecutive 3s to give Villanova a 52-37 lead in the opening minute. “Anytime we got it, they really extended on me and Allan on the wings,” Nardi said. “A couple of times, I got trapped and had to move the ball. I thought they really got out and didn’t allow us to get 3s.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

first_imgCampaigners against the household and property tax have called on people in Co Donegal who haven’t paid their charges to hold their nerve.They said today that any attempt by government to deduct the household tax or the new property tax at source from PAYE workers is “unworkable as long as people continue to refuse to register”.“The reason why the government wanted householders to register for the Household Tax  was because they don’t have a central database and don’t know who to levy it on,” said Francis McCafferty of the Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay campaign. “With half of households refusing to register, two thirds in Donegal, that remains the case.  They don’t know who to levy the new property tax on so they don’t know who to deduct it from.  We will hold firm in our determination to boycott the stealth taxes.”“The fact that the government has been forced to talk about deducting the property tax at source is a testament to the strength of the campaign of opposition and boycott. The campaign exists in every county and the boycott campaign remains extremely strong, so it’s no wonder that the government are desperately casting about for ways to attempt to break the boycott.”“Indeed if an attempt is made to deduct the property tax at source, it will make a mockery of the government’s election promise not to increase income tax. It will end the pretence that this is a charge to fund local services. If it is deducted from your wages and goes into central taxation, then it is nothing more than an income tax on homeowners.“It will prove that this tax is not about widening the tax base but about making ordinary people pay the gambling debts of bankers and developers while the wealthy continue to escape scot free.”  CAN’T PAY CAMPAIGNERS TELL PEOPLE: ‘HOLD YOUR NERVE’ was last modified: June 20th, 2012 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:CAN’T PAY CAMPAIGNERS TELL PEOPLE: ‘HOLD YOUR NERVE’last_img read more
