first_img– Advertisement – Kanio Bai Gbala The Nimba and Grand Gedeh Peace Initiative (NAGPI) has overwhelmingly endorsed the representative bid of Kanio Bai Gbala on the ticket of the Coalition of Democratic Change (CDC) in electoral district #3 in Montserrado County.NAGPI is a peace-building advocacy institution with more than 5,000 members from the two counties.Speaking to reporters at the weekend, NAGPI president Jackson Fiah Doe Jr. disclosed that the unreserved declaration of support for Atty. Gbala’s representative bid is based on his impeccable academic and professional credentials and unshakable commitment to entrench peace between the people of the two counties.Doe urged all well-meaning Liberians in the district to join NAGPI in supporting Atty. Gbala as “he represents the competent, diverse and inclusive face of the new Liberia we are trying to build.”Atty. Gbala, who is NAGPI’s vice president, is a product of the two counties.His late mother, Dorisann Toweh-Gbala, was the daughter of Paramount Chief S. Gblorzuo Toweh (deceased) of Toweh Town, Nimba County and sister of Nimba County Representative Ricks Toweh.His father, Bai Mason Gbala, is a retired economist and current political columnist, who hail from Menyeah Town, Grand Gedeh County.NAGPI, seven years ago, staged a massive peace parade in Monrovia, which ended at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium with a call for the two counties to put away their differences and become a united family.Various leaders, including Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai and Grand Gedeh County Representative Zoe Emmanuel Pennue, graced the occasion and declared massive support for the initiative.NAGPI, which also worked with Montserrado County Senator George Manneh Weah during his tenure as peace ambassador to advance his official mandate, has provided scholarships and other opportunities to citizens from the two counties as a means of building peace through skills-building initiatives.The NAGPI statement of support was signed by President Doe, Secretary-general Ernest B. Waylee, Assistant Secretary-General Eric Ceekay Sayee, Treasurer Augustus Goanue, Public Relations Officer J. Cephus Miller and chair of the Board of Advisors, Aagon Tingba.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

DONEGAL LEFT IN THE DARK AS CLOUDS RUIN SOLAR ECLIPSE

first_imgPicture taken last night by Brendan O’Donoghue in Stranorlar. Donegal was left in the dark as cloud cover restricted people from viewing the spectacular solar eclipse.Clear viewing opportunities of the rare phenomenon were ruined by overcast skies and clouds leaving thousands across the county disappointed. People had been warned not to look the eclipse directly in the eye due to the risk that you may go blind, and experts were advising people to wear special glasses.Clear skies the previous few nights gave people the opportunity to view the spectacular Northern Lights.It was hoped the skies would remain clear to view the solar eclipse but it was not to be.Scientists have described the solar eclipse as the best one in years and millions of people across the rest of Ireland and the UK witnessed the breath-taking sight. We’ll just have to wait until the next one and hope it’s not too cloudy. 🙂DONEGAL LEFT IN THE DARK AS CLOUDS RUIN SOLAR ECLIPSE was last modified: March 20th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:cloudsdonegalFeaturesnewsOvercastSkiessolar eclipselast_img read more

HARPS LOSE VITAL POINTS AFTER CONTROVERSIAL PENALTY

first_imgFinn Harps slipped to fourth place in the table after going down to Longford Town last night.A 25th minute controversial penalty was all that separated the sides in a pretty dour affair.Harps have secured just one point from a possible nine in their last three league games. Manager Ollie Horgan will be concerned about the lack of chances his side is creating up front with the continued loss of Kevin McHugh through injury.The turning point in the game came in the 25th minute when Packie Mailey was harshly adjudged to have handled the ball inside the area.O’Sullivan converted and despite a number of attempts, Harps failed to get back on level terms.  HARPS LOSE VITAL POINTS AFTER CONTROVERSIAL PENALTY was last modified: April 20th, 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:finn harpsLongford Townpenaltylast_img read more

Like for De Gea pic.twitter.com/oXKD0r5vio— Nabil Fekir (@Nabifekir) June 15, 2018 The glovesman was unable to prevent Cristiano Ronaldo’s seemingly routine effort from going into the net, even though the ball was straight at De Gea.This put the 2010 champions 2-1 down at half-time after Diego Costa had cancelled out Ronaldo’s early penalty.But Spain showed they were made of sterner stuff when they turned the game on its head after the break when Costa bagged his second before a beautiful strike from Nacho put them 3-2 up, much to the relief of De Gea.However, Ronaldo denied Spain victory with an outstanding free-kick on 88 minutes, completing his hat-trick. De Gea had no chance with this one, however.MATCH REPORT: Portugal 3-3 SpainAlthough De Gea’s mistakes did not fully cost them the game, this did not prevent fans comparing him to Liverpool’s Loris Karius – who made two costly errors in the Reds’ Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid last month.Scroll down for some of the best tweets below.center_img For those jesting that David De Gea will discover next week that he had suffered a concussion, please bear in mind he’s had one for years.After all, he agreed to sign for #MUFC🎣— Ian Doyle (@IanDoyleSport) June 15, 2018 De Gea handling the Karius Challenge like a Pro.— Major A.

Adams says he sees fear in Harrison

first_imgAli Adams believes Audley Harrison is feeling the pressure ahead of their heavyweight clash this Saturday.It will be Harrison’s first fight since he lost a one-sided world title bout against David Haye in November 2010 – a performance he says was caused by a pectoral injury.Underdog Adams, who was born in war-torn Iraq and now lives in Chelsea, insists he will end the former Olympic champion’s career and that Harrison, 40, does not have the stomach for a battle.“When I stand face-to-face I can see his eyes shaking – his confidence is knocking down,” Adams, 30, told West London Sport.“I don’t see a guy who’s hungry. My hunger is going to take care of everything.“Age is of course catching up [with Harrison] and playing with his head. He got knocked out in his fight with David Haye. I believe he’s got no confidence whatsoever.“If he’s got the confidence and has done the training then that would be amazing, because I want it to be a great fight.“I don’t want people to say ‘Ali Adams knocked him out because Audley’s finished’. I want them to say ‘Audley and Ali Adams had a really good fight and Ali Adams deserved to win.’”The fight is a massive opportunity for Adams, who knows a victory could take his career to another level.It also takes place exactly a year after the death of his father.Adams said: “This is my dream. I wish my father was next to me watching. I believe his soul is watching up there. I’m going to do it for him.“I’m fighting for people who’ve got no chance in life. This is my chance, my opportunity, my time.“When you get an opportunity like this you can’t let it go. You have to give 100%. I’d rather die than lose to him.”And Adams, who left Baghdad as a youngster, laughed off Harrison’s claim to have “come from the streets” of north-west London and to have worked his way up the hard way.“I’ve seen the war, the bombs and all that when I was a child,” said Adams.“Him growing up on the streets? That means nothing. He could never go on the streets of Iraq.“Most of the people you know get killed or kidnapped. I had to had to fight through life to get where I am today. This is my time.”The much-criticised Harrison is typically confident about his chances, claiming that he is now fully fit and ready to produce his best.A defeat this weekend would be the sixth of his career and surely bring about his retirement.A win, however, could put him in line for a shot at the likes of Liverpool prospect David Price.Harrison declared: “After the David Haye fight I think a lot of people thought it would be the last of Mr A-Force. They thought it would be over.“The guy that’s turning up on Saturday is the guy that most people know and that 90% of the time whose performances have been above average.“When it matters I turn up and I do a job. And come Saturday night, Mr Adams, I will be turning up to do a job, so all the talk you’ve been doing – let’s hope you believe it.“I’m ready to turn the clock back. You’re going to see something special. I’m back.“The reason I’ve come back and haven’t retired is because this part of the journey is about Audley finding himself. This is about my legacy. This is about my journey.”Follow West London Sport on Twitter Find us on Facebooklast_img read more

Madiba shirt designer inspires youth

first_img3 February 2016Sonwabile Ndamase, Madiba’s shirt-maker, wants to give opportunities to the youth https://t.co/Mu1Ap3qTud pic.twitter.com/LPi5TwYqtK— City Press Online (@City_Press) January 30, 2016Clothing designer Sonwabile Ndamase was born and bred in Libode, formerly in Transkei, now in Eastern Cape, and made his name as the designer of the famous Madiba shirts, the often colourful, always eye-catching shirts worn by the iconic Nelson Mandela.Ndamase is now offering the youth of his home province the opportunity to learn how to make a career in the fashion industry.He launched a learnership programme for his South African Fashion Designers Agency (Safda) in East London on 26 January. Ndamase, wearing one of his trademark shirts, spoke passionately about how the agency was his way of giving back to the community and continuing the legacy of the globally recognised late statesman.“This is very important to me,” said Ndamase. “Part of it is to leave the legacy of Tata Mandela that he asked me to do. He asked me to plough back to the community where I come from and make it a point I change people’s lives.“By wearing my shirt, (Mandela) did the same for me because before that nobody knew me. He opened up the markets for me. We managed to crack the industry and make it a point that things start to work for the betterment of an African child,” he said.S/O to Sonwabile Ndamase on creating and driving the greatest trend to hit the world #MadibaSkirt #FashionFriday pic.twitter.com/PDCLT1iZKZ— Amkelo Jiyane (@_Amkelo) December 6, 2013The birth of the Madiba shirtWhile the original Madiba shirt – known as the ‘fish shirt’ – was designed by local designer Desre Buirski Nash, Ndamase was tasked by Mandela to design his own unique style.Ndamase tells BBQ business magazine how he came to be Madiba’s personal shirt maker: “Tata gave me the brief on how and what he would like to wear. it was influenced by his health at the time. his lungs (affected by the conditions on Robben Island), so he needed something cool to the body, easy to wear, but as he called it ‘well-behaved.’”Ndamase sent Mandela a number of ideas and designs and picked an uncharacteristically colourful one. “Madiba wanted his own look, something different from the usual politician, so I started to create the kind of a shirt that would make him stand out, but still look well-behaved,” Ndamase explained.As the founder and chairperson of Safda and its Vukani Fashion Awards programme, which was started in 1993, Ndamase has put up R250 000 of his own money to kick-start the new learnership project. Partnering with the Sector Education and Training Authority (Seta), the project has raised R3.5-million that will be used to support 150 students while they learn about the process and business of fashion design over the 12-month programme.While the programme is specifically aimed at previously disadvantaged fashion design graduates, it is also open to unemployed youths with an interest in the industry, as well as physically challenged individuals.“The all-inclusive project intends to recruit 25 physically challenged youths to enrol as part of the programme,” Ndamase said.He emphasised that Safda was the only portal through which the evolution of the first generation of South Africa’s fashion artistry could be witnessed since the advent of democracy. In turn, this also ensured the agency’s ability to stay ahead of the curve in a rapidly changing environment.Fashion had an important role to play in forming an African identity, he added. Clothes were symbols, as he told BBQ. They “they tell who you are, where you are coming from and where you are going to. I was trying to send a message: we as young and upcoming designers cannot to be fooled by what is happening around the world and embody ubuntu so that they can show who we are and where we are coming from.”His proudly African philosophy helps to inspire his students to strive to be the best they can be and to deliver original African art and culture: “Africa is fresh, Africa is new, Africa is energetic. we have so much to offer to the world.”Source: News24Wirelast_img read more

Southern Africa strengthens relations with its largest trade partner, the European Union at the fifth South Africa-Italy Summit

first_imgEuropean Union (EU) is today the number one exporter to Southern Africa, its main trade partner and the major investor in the Region. Within this context, some of the most influential business leaders from Southern Africa and Europe gathered in Johannesburg today to explore exciting opportunities for growth and investment.The fifth edition of the South Africa-Italy Indaba, taking place this year on October 23 and 24 at the Maslow Hotel, has grown to become one of the most important forums to discuss strategic economic issues between the whole of Southern Africa, Italy and Europe at large.Organised by The European House Ambrosetti (TEHA), in partnership with the Gauteng Government, the summit was addressed by among others Trevor Manuel, former South African Finance Minister and now President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Special Envoy on Investment, who spoke on the topic of Africa’s viability as an investment destination.TEHA’s Managing Partner and CEO, Valerio De Molli, said in opening the summit that the event’s aim was “to put Southern Africa on the radar of European companies, together with the many opportunities the region offers”.“At the base of this engagement and commitment there has always been the certainty that the two regions are, and will be, vital for each other. European Union (EU) exports towards Southern Africa have returned to growth in the past year, strengthening the EU position as the major exporter towards the region and reaching a value of 72 Billion Euro (R1.2 trillion). This value is almost twice that of the United States of America, the United Arab Emirates and India combined, and is 15% more than the Chinese one. In addition, EU is today the major partner of Africa for growth of the region, with total FDIs stock in the continent totalling 302 billion Euro, more than double the US investments` stock and 8 times Chinese ones” De Molli, whose TEHA has been nominated as the number one think tank in Italy, told delegates at the summit today.The transport sector’s importance to the growth of investment between Europe and Southern Africa was a crucial part of the opening day of the summit.South Africa’s Transport Minister, Dr Blade Nzimande, told the summit the “investment into research and innovation in the transport sector is an absolute necessity”.“We’re looking to introduce transport innovation hubs to harness the great potential we have in terms of innovation. These will not only be restricted to South Africa, but will be in partnership with the SADC region and the rest of the African continent. There are lots of opportunities in the region for public transport. We in South Africa have very interesting examples, while not perfect, of what can be done. We have established bus rapid transport systems in 13 South African cities, investing billions of rands, which can be copied in the region, in a very integrated way,” said Dr Nzimande.         He said less than 1% of government budgets on the African continent was spent on innovation, whereas Europe spent at least 5% on innovation.“South Africa, SADC and the rest of Africa provide huge opportunities for investment, not least from Europe, that can change our continent. If the first three industrial revolutions left us behind, we must not be left behind with the fourth industrial revolution,” Dr Nzimande added.He said the areas of civil aviation, the fact that Africa had the largest inland waterway in the world, and maritime transport were all areas of “huge opportunity for growth and development” and collaboration between African countries and Europe.Zimbabwe’s Deputy Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Development, Fortune Chasi, said the country’s new dawn following the election of President Emmerson Mnangagwa, represented a golden opportunity.“Zimbabwe is on the cusp of huge economic infrastructure development in every respect. We bring to SADC investment opportunities that arise from the challenges we are facing. We have not been able to keep up with our huge infrastructure demands. A congenial atmosphere has now been created for foreign partnerships and private investment. If we achieve cohesiveness as a region, transport has the opportunity of driving our economies to much higher levels,” Chasi told the summit.Other topics addressed at the summit today included the “financial tools to improve Africa’s investibility”, the “intermodal paradigm in transport and logistics” and “smart technologies and the city of the future”.          A major highlight on the opening day of the summit was an address by Jonathan Reichental, Chief Information Officer (CIO) of California’s Silicon Valley City of Palo Alto.Some of the points Reichental made was the need to prepare for a world where computers – and not people – would drive cars in future, and how cities needed to be designed differently.Reichental also spoke of how the future of the world was “solar” and how this would transform the economic systems of the world.“As leaders we’re not thinking boldly enough. We have the most complex work in the world – in the most complex environments of the world – our cities. We’re just at the beginning of an incredible transformation, where all the possibilities and opportunities to build amazing cities and improve the quality of life of our people, is worth trillions of dollars. I encourage us to innovate cities, because then you can really, truly change the world,” said Reichental.De Molli said going forward the summit would be known as the “Africa-Europe CEO Dialogue”.Some of the Italian companies that are supporting the summit include MA Automotive, Building Energy, CNH Industrial, Ferrovie Dello Stato Italiane, Fiera Milano, Terna, Alitalia and Ubi Banca.“We are convinced that, by working together, Southern Africa and European companies can unleash and nurture the growth of the continent,” said De Molli.On behalf of The European House Ambrosettilast_img
