More to come from Morgan

first_imgJASON MORGAN stepped up to the plate in Zurich but was unable to find the type of form that has seen him throw a personal best and national record of 68.19 metres.Morgan finished in eighth position in the Diamond League discus event with a best throw of 58.52m.Reflecting on his form this year, he told The Gleaner that hurting his back earlier in the season hindered his progress.He said: “This year has been ups and downs. The ups were breaking the national record, the downs was hurting my back really bad.”I continued to throw because I had scheduled meetings, but that wasn’t the best thing I could have done.”He added: “Next year is another challenge, I’m looking forward to it but, hopefully, I will be able to secure some finance that will help me. I’m coaching myself and work a full-time job caring for abandoned and abused kids; it’s not an ideal situation.”Today’s competition wasn’t the best, but it’s another day. It started raining earlier and I’ve had a bad experience in the rain when I slipped in London, so it made me wary.”Morgan said competing in the World Championships in Beijing has steeled him for the rigours of international competition. Approaching the Olympics in 2016, he will be ready to improve on his performances this year.He said: “I’m actually motivated by what I could have done this year at the Championships if I wasn’t hurt. You are not going to get everything you want all of time but I am a positive man, and I am looking forward to next year.”SELECTEDRESULTSWOMEN100m B race: 1. Elaine Thompson 11.06, 2.

When God Gives You a Talent, Use It for Good

first_imgLast Saturday, Willis DeFrancis Knuckles, Jr. was laid to rest following a funeral service during which a rainstorm of  praises were showered upon him for his many contributions  to his family, country, church and people.Amidst all of the tributes paid to this fallen national hero, no one, not even his closest family members, said that he was perfect. But unlike the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar, at whose historic funeral Mark Antony remarked, “We have come to bury Caesar, not to praise him,” the audience that overcrowded the Seys United Methodist Church in Careysburg last Saturday came to bid a glowing farewell to a man who used his extraordinary talents as an organizer, manager and fundraiser to accomplish great things for his family, country,  church and people.His wife Hawa, Willis’  Cuttington College sweetheart whom he married 45 years ago, two years after his graduation, wept bitterly as she departed the gravesite  saying, “He was a good man.”The funeral was attended both by the President of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, and the Vice President, Joseph N. Boakai.  The President was also at the gravesite, and tarried with the widow and family during the repast.All could see and behold that Ellen was gravely shaken by the loss of the man who twice organized her successful presidential campaigns that won her two successive elections to the Liberian presidency.  She appointed him twice to the Cabinet, first as Public Works Minister and later as Minister of State for Presidential Affairs.  After that he remained her confidante because she appreciated his wise counsel and his ability to get things done efficiently and quickly.  Willis had only one academic degree, the Bachelor’s in Natural Sciences from the prestigious Cuttington College and Divinity School (now Cuttington University); but there are not many most highly educated people that possess his extraordinary skills as an organizer and manager or, simply put, as a man who knew how to get things done.That is why in her obituary on Saturday she told over a thousand who had gathered for the funeral something she had never said publicly: that it was Willis DeFrancis Knuckles that she had earmarked to organize the transfer of the Liberian capital from Monrovia in Montserrado County to Zekepa in Nimba County!Speaker after speaker marveled at the distinguishing feature of Willis’ personality, aptly summed up by his son Willis III: “My father was a manager and organizer par excellence.”Willis the younger recalled the bouts he had with his father over football.  Willis, Jr. passionately supported Barrolle, while the son and the rest of the family were adherents of Invincible Eleven (I.E.).  Willis, Jr., the democrat, allowed his son to have his way, though the father spent a lot of time striving to get his son to cross over.  The son recalled how his father, as a leader of the Liberian Football Association (LFA) inspired  many, including George Weah and Salinsa Debar on to international stardom.Family members recalled how Willis, Jr. for 37 years served effectively as head of family, organizing, especially during the 14-year Liberian civil war the departures of scores of Knuckleses through Danane and Abidjan to asylum in the United States. His daughters called him their “personal hero.”  The Advance Committee of the United Methodist Church hailed him as one of its most effective  workers and fundraisers.But it was the Seys Church that was the greatest beneficiary of Willis’ fundraising prowess.  He was still in exile in the USA when in the early 2000s he began organizing the rebuilding of the church following the war.  That having been accomplished, the edifice was later destroyed by fire.  As distressed Careysburgians tearfully crowded around the gutted edifice on the afternoon of the fire, Benoni Urey, then Mayor of Careysburg, recalled Willis having declared, “We will rebuild the church again.”He immediately began organizing and strategizing the fundraising and within a few months he raised nearly a half million dollars, both nationally and internationally.  The rebuilt church is far bigger, far more beautiful than the first.The reason for this editorial is not so much to sing Willis Knuckles’ praises, but to remind everyone reading it, especially Liberians, that when our beneficent Creator gives someone a talent, he or she should use it for GOOD.That is what Willis Knuckles did with his, and the world is better for it.  Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Horse cart worker remanded for escaping from custody

first_imgA horse cart operator, who is a father of eight found himself before the Court of Law in Georgetown on Monday morning slapped with two charges – escaping from Police custody and fraudulent conversion one – which saw him being remanded to prison.Paul Archer of Lot 562 Cummings Lodge, East Coast Demerara (ECD) admitted to escaping from the Kitty Police Station on April 5, 2018, where he was being held for fraudulently converting monies given to him by Lelowtie Persaud on October 14, 2018.Archer told Magistrate Leron Daly that he indeed escape from Police custody after he was being held for six days.He, however denied that he fraudulently converted $30,000, which he received after selling a Honda pump for Persaud.The Virtual Complainant (VC) told the Court that she did not wish to pursue the charges laid against Archer and as such that matter was dismissed.However, when Magistrate Daly was about to sentence the 47-year-old man for the escaping from custody charge, he began to plead for leniency.“I begging you, I had my eight children at home…the oldest is 13 and the youngest four and I had to get home to provide for them” Archer pleaded.When told that his guilty plea would see him being jailed, Archer changed his plea to not guilty.Police Prosecutor, Richard Harris objected to bail being granted revealing that the man is a flight risk and was recaptured in Georgetown after he escaped from the Police Station.As such, bail was refused. The case will continue on April 27.last_img read more

PPP calls for external investigation into deaths of children at GPHC

first_imgThe People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) has also made the call for an external investigation into the deaths of the three children who all lost their lives while receiving cancer treatment at the Georgetown Public Hospital.According to the Party in a statement, parents have certain expectations when they place their children in the care of health-care institutions and they deserve answers.Moreover, the PPP/C expressed its sincerest condolences to the families of six-year-old Corwin Edwards, six-year-old Sharezer Mendonca, and three-year-old Roshini Seegobin and urged the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC)Sharezer Mendoncato provide answers.Mendonca was taken to the Paediatric Ward on January 3, where she was administered with an injection before undergoing treatment, but became unresponsive. She was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) where her face started to swell and she later succumbed.During the same period which Mendonca was admitted, three-year-old Seegobin visited the said medical institution for cancer treatment, but after returning home, her condition deteriorated. The leukaemia patient usually received treatment at the Hospital.Guyana Times understands that another child, Curwayne Edwards, also passed away during this period after undergoing similar treatment. The injections were allegedly administered through the children’s spinal cords. The use of the drug has reportedly since been discontinued.Rights of the Child Commissioner, activist Nicole Cole had also expressed her view that an external investigation which includes representatives from recognised and relevant organisations was more in keeping with transparency than the Hospital investigating itself.Following the concerns raised, Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence said the Ministry has reached out to the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO) forRoshani Seegobintechnical support in its investigation into the circumstances surrounding the passing of the three children. In a statement, at her Brickdam office, Minister Lawrence noted that technical support was sought from PAHO to support the process of openness and transparency.Meanwhile, PPP also expressed condolences to the family of Mae’s Secondary School student, 15-year-old Vanica Schultz, who allegedly took her own life at the educational institution on Thursday last.According to the Party, the incident underscores the need for greater vigilance so that support mechanisms can be in place and accessible at times when our children are faced with difficult choices.last_img read more

Morrison arrives in Fort St. John with Gilmore Junio

first_imgDuring his time back in Fort St. John Morrison will be speaking at five schools, taking part in a community celebration event at the Pomeroy Sport Centre tomorrow night from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m., and he’ll also be speaking at the City Community Awards Celebration Thursday night at the Lido Theatre. Morrison says that seeing a crowd waiting for him at the airport is a great feeling and it’s something he’s thought about for quite some time.“It’s pretty cool to come home. When I first made Junior Worlds in Japan in 2003 I thought I’d have a reception but it’s cool to finally have what I dreamt of happening back 11 years ago happen today.”Gilmore Junio is also in Fort St John as he accompanied Morrison on his trip back home.

UCLA revives nursing classes

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Deborah Burger, president of the California Nurses Association, said she is encouraged by the news, but would like to see more community colleges expand their programs. Community colleges now graduate more than two-thirds of the new nurses in California. Marie Cowan, dean of UCLA’s School of Nursing, noted that the curriculum for the new programs still needs to be approved by the UCLA Academic Senate. But she said school officials are excited at the opportunity to expand its nursing program. “I think it meets the health care needs of all Californians,” she said. “The curriculum is designed to raise the bar of nursing education in California, and the faculty are very excited about it.” Nursing programs are expensive for colleges and universities because they require low student-to-faculty ratios, have rigorous math and science requirements, and require that students get hands-on training through clinical rotations. The UC system shut down its bachelor’s degree nursing programs more than a decade ago because of state budget cuts, focusing only on graduate nursing programs. The University of Southern California also shut down its nursing program in 2004, citing high costs. After a 10-year absence, UCLA’S undergraduate nursing program is being revived, but health care experts say it will do little to alleviate the critical statewide shortage of registered nurses. Under the plan by the University of California regents, $5.2 million will be allocated for a bachelor’s and entry-level master’s degree nursing program at University of California, Los Angeles, beginning in the fall. UCLA would be the only university in the 10-campus UC system to offer the undergraduate degree, which is expected to produce about 50 graduates a year in each program. “I think it’s a wonderful development,” said Jan Emerson, vice president of external affairs for the California Hospital Association, the state’s hospital trade association. “We really need as many new nursing programs as possible. We didn’t get into the nursing shortage overnight, and we’re not going to solve it overnight. “We need to essentially be doubling the number of nurses being educated and graduating from our schools in order to deal with the nursing shortage,” said Emerson, noting that the state currently graduates about 6,000 nurses a year and will have a shortage of 120,000 nurses by 2020 if more isn’t done to train them. That left the education of bedside nurses to 13 campuses in the California State University system, nine private colleges and the community colleges, including Pierce College in Woodland Hills and Valley College in Valley Glen. Many programs have years-long waiting lists. “Trust me, there’s more than enough students wanting to go into nursing as a career for everyone to have a full complement of students,” said Yasmin Delahoussaye, vice president of student services at Valley College, which had 163 applicants for 16 openings and will graduate 43 nurses in the spring. “It’s another possible place for our graduates to transfer to,” added Paul Whalen, dean of academic affairs at Pierce, which graduates about 40 nurses a year. “We’re very happy about it.” At California State University, Northridge, registered nurses who have trained at community colleges or in three-year programs can earn a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing. Officials say a bachelor’s degree enables nurses to advance to management positions faster and prepares them for master’s degree programs that will enable them to teach. Currently, UCLA’s School of Nursing offers a master’s degree for advanced practice for nurses in several fields, including acute care nurse practitioners, family care nurse practitioners, occupational health, pediatrics, gerontology, oncology and administration, and has about 300 students. That number is expected to grow to 624 by 2010, and the university plans to hire 22 faculty members and five staff members over the next three years. Lisa M.

WELL-KNOWN DONEGAL POET TO READ AT IRISH WRITERS’ CENTRE

first_imgWell-known Co Donegal writer Denise Blake will read this Friday at the Irish Writers’ Centre (1pm) as part of the Lunctime Readings.She was born in Lakewood Ohio in 1958 and returned to Ireland with her parents and family to live in Letterkenny 1969.Her first collection of poetry, Take a Deep Breath, was published by Summer Palace Press. Her second collection, How to Spin Without Getting Dizzy, was published in Spring 2010. She is a regular contributor to RTÉ’s Sunday Miscellany and her work is in five Sunday Miscellany anthologies. She read as part of Poetry Ireland Introductions series, Out to Lunch readings and took part in the Clé Author and Publisher library tour. Her work has been published in The SHOp, Poetry Ireland Review, The Stinging Fly and West 47.She is a founder of the Errigal Writers’ Group and received an MA in poetry from Lancaster University through the Poets’ House. She has wide experience of giving creative writing workshops in national and secondary schools in Donegal as well as working with adult groups.Here is a questions and answer profile with Denise.When did you start writing poetry? Firstly, I know the moment when I started to love poetry, it was when I read Seamus Heaney’s poem, Docker. We were studying the poem as part of the English segment in a foundation course in Magee College and I loved the imagery in the line; He sits, strong and blunt as a Celtic cross. It was the first time that I could see into a poem for myself. The course was to be my return to education but instead it was my awakening to poetry. I was in my thirties and I had young children. I would never have considered writing a poem before that time. I started reading poetry and writing my own pieces. I was so thrilled with myself when I started producing work. The excitement of seeing new words appear has never left me. There were two strong forces in Co. Donegal at the time – The Killybegs Writers Group and Letterkenny Writers Group – so there were people who were supportive and showed great encouragement. Eventually a group of us evolved into Errigal Writers and we still meet twice a month.What’s been the greatest obstacle to becoming (and remaining) a poet?The “who do you think you are?” chorus sitting on my shoulder. But the question could be; what has helped you stay writing? This is a great country for writing and I have had so much support, starting with my local community. There isn’t a week goes by that I am not asked “are you still writing?” by someone who is willing you on. When we first started Errigal Writers we organized Gerard Byrne to give us workshops and the Irish Writers Centre helped us out. We continued to bring other established writers to Donegal over the years and they have all treated us with a professional respect. I was lucky to be chosen for the Writers Workshop in UCG ( as it was then) with Paula Meehan as our facilitator. You can’t get a more professional, and yet compassionate, person to work with. I was fortunate also to be able to do the MA course in the Poets’ House in Falcaragh. There are so many established writers who are generous with their time and energy. I’m on the directory for Poetry Ireland’s Writers in the Schools and that experience is wonderful.What gets you started on a poem—idea, image, personal experience?The greatest motivation I have is being a member of the Errigal Writers. When I know we are due to meet things start moving in the back of my mind for a while. I become more aware of my surroundings and more susceptible to imagery around me. I will read more poetry in those days and watch performances on you tube. And then I try to find a silence that lets creativity come into the room. I have found my favourite type of moleskine notebooks and I always write the first drafts in longhand. I just love that moment when the first draft is finished. How did you go about getting your poetry published?You have to get work published in magazines; Poetry Ireland Review, the Stinging Fly, The SHOp were the magazines who first accepted my work. I also had pieces on Sunday Miscellany and I love recording for radio. Again I’m fortunate in that Joan and Kate Newmann of Summer Palace Press have a home in Donegal. They used to hold wonderful workshops and readings in their home in Kilcar. Eventually they accepted my manuscript and published Take a Deep Breath in 2004. They put so much work into the editing process that it is a gift when the book is published. My second book , How to Spin Without Getting Dizzy came out in 2010.You are very involved in community-based projects, how did this happen and why is it important to you?I’m not as involved as I should be but I live in Co. Donegal, we don’t have organisations running readings and workshops on an ongoing basis so the Arts Scene kind of works from the earth upwards. Our Arts Officer, Traolach O’Fionnain is very approachable and he encourages us to create events. There were times in the group energy where we needed to perform, or meet other writers, or work with established writers or publish work, so the only thing for it was to organise it ourselves. North West Words is a group who now hold readings with featured writers and open-mic on the last Thursday of every month. I do think there is a hunger for poetry readings here. Are festivals a good outlet for poets?Festivals have the funding for organising events and advertising. Anything that gets poets and writers performing in an area is good.Do female poets face particular challenges? Do young male poets seem to have a higher profile?Yes. But whether that means that female poets face more challenges I’m not sure. It is a very long road.What are you writing next?I’m writing poems for now. That is what is coming when I put the pen to paper and I’m grateful for them. Hopefully it will shape into a third manuscript.Any advice for emerging writers?Love what you are doing. Work at the craft. Read. Be prepared for the long distance not a sprint. Don’t be crucified by rejections. Look carefully at the word emerging, it carries hope and a future. It isn’t: never-going-to-happen writers, but emerging. I love the feeling that anything can happen once you are writing and sending out work.WELL-KNOWN DONEGAL POET TO READ AT IRISH WRITERS’ CENTRE was last modified: March 29th, 2012 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:DENISE BLAKEIRISH WRITERS’ MUSEUMlast_img read more
