Grand Bassa County Senator, Jonathan Kaipay has stressed the need for political stability in order to maintain growth in Liberia.Kaipay made the statement recently in Gbarnga, Bong County when he gave the address at a kindergarten graduation program of the Saye-wheh Town Public School.Liberians should take the upcoming October elections seriously to continue to enjoy peace in the country, said Kaipay. Stability is a hall mark for the attraction of investors and a growing a stronger economy which will provide more jobs and other opportunities for the country and its people, he said, adding, “If we must enjoy corporate benefits, we have to keep this country peaceful and stable.”Sen. Kaipay called on political party representatives and other stakeholders to debate political issues void of mudslinging and anything that will result to violence.The primary message throughout the campaign, he said, should be peace and stability. “We must argue, we must debate, but it should not result into violence because we need to keep the peace we now enjoy,” Kaipay added.The graduation program was attended by students, parents and executives of NMG Gold Mining Company operating in that part of the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement – Senator Kaipay: “If we must enjoy corporate benefits, we have to keep this country peaceful and stable.”
The Christian Leadership Training Institute (CLTI) last Saturday performed an elaborate ground- breaking ceremony for the construction of a modern school costing more than US$300,000, in Ganta City, Nimba County.The school, when completed, will be named “College Preparatory School” and will prepare high school students, especially those in Grade 12, for college education.CLTI president, Dr. Sei Bour, said the idea is to construct the campus for the training of church leaders.According to Dr. Bour, while in the United States, he received letters from elders of the Liberia Inland Church to come home and contribute to the society, especially in the area of education, to prepare the young ones for college.That request, he said, “continues to ring a bell in my ear; and it was based on that call that I decided to break ground to construct a training center for those desirous of becoming future leaders.”Dr. Bour said his first contribution was to establish the LICC, which began academic activities in Ganta in 2009 and is now offering first degrees in basic academic disciplines.According to him, the idea of building the College Preparatory School was born in 2015, when a large number of high school students failed the national exam administered by West African Examination Council.It started as a study class for 12th graders in Ganta, but made a great impact in 2016/2017 on the performance of students who were privileged to have been part of the study class.Bour said the study class program, which was hosted at the campus of the Methodist School, became vibrant to such an extent that the campus could no longer host a huge influx of 12th graders who attended the program.“Looking at the needs of the students, we decided to lobby with our friends and partners in the United States so we could build a campus to host a huge number of the students, including some of the 9th graders,” he said.The school will be built on seven acres of land, situated around the LPRC Community, near the LOIC Site east of Ganta.The ground-breaking ceremony was attended by several prominent Nimbaians, including Reverend Laiah Zayour, president of Liberia United Liberia Inland Church, Ganta City Mayor Amos N. G. Suah, Dr. James Kermue, LICC’s president, and Jay Skinner, CLTI US representative.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

VANCOUVER — Mill cutbacks in British Columbia are still happening, but West Fraser Timber Co Ltd. said Friday that the worst of the pullback is behind it.The company, like many in B.C.’s lumber industry, has cut back and closed mills in recent months in response to limited log supplies and a plunge in lumber prices from record highs last year.Canfor, for example, announced late Thursday it was indefinitely suspending operations at its Mackenzie sawmill and permanently cutting a shift at its Isle Pierre mill to reduce output- Advertisement -For its part, West Fraser CEO Ray Ferris said the company’s already announced cuts should put it on a more stable footing in the province going forward.“From a strategic standpoint, much of our heavy lifting in British Columbia is now behind us,” Ferris told a conference call Friday to discuss the company’s latest financial results.West Fraser announced plans late last year to cut shifts at its mills in Quesnel, Fraser Lake, and in the last quarter announced it would also cut a shift at 100 Mile House and close its mill in Chasm in response to the squeeze on margins. The permanent reductions totalled about 614 million board feet.Advertisement “These permanent reductions, coupled with the impact of the temporary curtailments in the first half of 2019 by approximately 250 million board feet, have been disruptive, costly, and extremely difficult for our employees, our log contractors, our suppliers and our communities,” said Ferris, who stepped into the chief executive role July 1.The shift in fortunes compared with last year were clear in West Fraser’s results, which showed it lost $17 million, or 25 cents per share for the quarter ending June 30, compared with earnings $397 million or $5.19 a share last year.The results were also well below analyst expectations of adjusted earnings of nine cents per share according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.RBC Capital Markets analyst Paul Quinn, characterizing the second quarter as a “ferris wheel of issues, said lumber earnings were below his expectations, made worse by worse-than-expected export duties of $51 million.Advertisement While there is no quick recovery expected in B.C., West Fraser said its fortunes are looking brighter in the U.S. south that it started expanding into 15 years ago in the height of B.C.’s mountain pine beetle outbreak. The region now accounts for over 70 per cent of its lumber production.“Going forward, we expect a less disruptive half across many of our businesses, particularly in the U.S. south,” said Ferris.

BY EMMET RUSHE: Everywhere you turn, they are there.Everywhere you go, they are waiting for you.There is no escape… Holiday nibbles are EVERYWHERE!!!It’s that time of year again where every house, shop and work place seems to be sponsored by ‘Pringles’ or ‘Roses’.It doesn’t matter how good you are, you would need the will power of a Tibetan monk to avoid sneaking even one nibble this Christmas.The inevitable is upon us, so do we give in completely or do we try and have a bit of control over our hand to mouth interaction? Here are a few things you can do to stem the inevitable Christmas weight gain this year.Don’t turn up to a party hungry.If there is one sure way to end up sitting in the corner surrounded by empty Roses wrappers, it is this.Turning up to a party hungry is a recipe for disaster.Before you go to a staff party or house party, try and have a good meal. If you are already full and not hungry you are less likely to binge on everything in sight when you get there.Don’t sit at the nibbles table.Everyone wants a comfy seat.No one wants to turn up to a party and have to stand all night. But the weigh up between standing and sitting can be a table full of nibbles right in arm’s length.If you are trying to be a bit good this year, try and not put yourself right in the danger zone by sitting in front of the table of snacks.You will be mid conversation with all the other party goers and won’t even realise that you’ve polished off the bowl of ‘Bombay mix’ all by yourself.Pace your alcohol intakeThis is a good piece of advice for a few reasons.First off, if you pace your drinking, you are less likely to get the alcohol munchies early on in the night therefore lessening the damage that you could do. You are also taking in less calories through alcohol.Secondly, if you pace your alcohol intake, you are less likely to make a shambles of yourself in front of your work colleagues and have your antics on Facebook the next morning.Avoid excessive drinking and tasting when cooking.When preparing meals this Christmas try and avoid having the bottle of wine beside your glass.You will be less likely to keep topping up your glass and the bottle might last you longer than stuffing the turkey.When preparing the food try and limit the amount of tasting that you do, a taste isn’t a turkey leg while basting.Walk it offFinally and on a more serious note.If you are going to indulge yourself over the festive season, try at least to get up the following morning/afternoon and go for a walk.You will be burning up a few of the previous night’s treats and it is something that you and your partner, friend or family can do that might just last into the new year and become a habit that you could keep.Lastly, enjoy yourself and be safe this festive season!Contact me through the link below and we can arrange a chat where we can map out what you want to achieve in 2015. #TrainSmarthttps://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: HOW TO AVOID CHRISTMAS WEIGHT GAIN was last modified: December 15th, 2014 by John2Share 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:CHristmaseatingemmet rushefitness columnpartiesweight gain
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was asked about a number of issues at his press conference ahead of the Boxing Day home game with Bournemouth. Here is some of what the Italian had to say.Team newsEmbed from Getty Images“We are in a good shape, and all the players are fit. We haven’t any new injuries.”Giving players time off“I gave [them] three days off because I thought that my players deserved this after a really intense period.“We played three games in only six days and I thought that the best way to recover was with three days off.“When you give three days off, you don’t know the destination of your players.“But I think the most important thing is to recover, not only with your body but above all with your head.”FULL STORY: Chelsea players deserved time off – ConteSuspensions for N’Golo Kante and Diego CostaEmbed from Getty Images“We know that for this game N’Golo and Costa can’t play. For sure, they are two important players for us.“But we are working very well this week to try to find a solution, to play good football, to continue to win, to take the three points.“We all know that against Bournemouth it won’t be easy, because they are a very good team with great organisation.”FULL STORY: Costa’s absence ‘a big blow’ – CourtoisFrank Lampard’s appearance at training“It’s very nice to see him. He’s a legend for this club and it’s fantastic when he comes to see the training session, to talk with us and to stay also with former team-mates. I found him in good form.“We didn’t talk about this. Frank wants to continue to play football. I saw him in good form and a good shape to continue to play football. For his future, I think it’s better to ask him.”Losing Steve Holland to England“For Steve, [it’s important] to be focused on this season because it is very important for us. Steve is a very good professional and is helping me a lot with my experience at Chelsea because he has great experience with this club.“It’s a pity to lose him, I must be honest, but also I can understand his choice because this type of situation can arrive only once in your life, to be a coach with your national team.“It’s a pity because I work very well with him. I have a fantastic staff, there is a great family spirit with us.FULL STORY: Holland to leave Chelsea for England roleEddie Howe“I think he’s a really good manager. He’s very young and is doing very well with Bournemouth.“I’m studying Bournemouth and I’m watching a good team with good organisation in the tactical aspect.“They try always try to play from the back and put on good pressure.“I like him and have great respect for him. I wish for him a good career and I think if he continues in this way, for sure, he can become a manager of a great team.”Nathan Ake, on loan at Bournemouth from ChelseaEmbed from Getty Images“Now the most important thing is that Ake is playing very well and is getting great experience. As for the future, I prefer to talk with the club. But he’s playing very well and improving a lot.”Replacing Costa and Kante“I have four days to evaluate the situation and to try to find the best solution for the team.“For sure, Diego is an important player for us but in these days we are working to find the right solution. In the squad I have different solutions.“This is a good test for us because we play this game without two players who are very important for our team.“For this reason, it’s important to evaluate the situation in our squad, [whether] to give the possibility to play some players who until now are not playing a lot, or to find another solution.“What my eye sees this week is very important.”FULL STORY: Conte keeps Bournemouth guessing over BatshuayiMatching his record of 12 league wins in a row, achieved at JuventusEmbed from Getty Images“Now is different because in this league there are many teams that can fight for the CL [qualification], for the title, for the EL [places] and for this reason it’s important to continue in this way. We know that it won’t be easy but we have to try with all our strength.”Michy Batshuayi“It’s not easy to arrive in this league if you are a young player, and you are arriving in a new country. It’s difficult to adapt because this league is very tough. It’s a very physical league, very strong, but I think Michy is working very well.“We must have patience with him, work with him, try to help him improve and then next step is to play more this season.”FULL STORY: Batshuayi needs to adapt, Conte admitsUsing a different formation against BournemouthEmbed from Getty Images“I think that this team showed in the past that we can play with different formations.“I must be honest that when we played with different formations, we didn’t have this type of results.“It can be an option but we are working to find the right solution, with the right men in the right place, to try to continue this way, and to win.” Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!
