Encouraging Our Albino Brothers and Sisters

first_imgThe Liberia Albino Society (LAS) on Monday organized an impressive celebration marking World Albino Day in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.LAS executive director Patricia Logan made an impassioned plea to the Liberian public to reach out in love and compassion to our Albino brothers and sisters, who are in that condition through no fault of their own.  It is a phenomenon found throughout the world.In some societies, such as Tanzania, these people are very badly treated.  Some are even abused in human sacrifice, making life extremely difficult and unbearable for them. Such an extremity is thankfully not found in Liberia.  Still, Liberians need to do more to help them cope with life.  We should all, whenever we come across them, display a positive attitude toward them, treating them just as we treat any other person, without seeming condescending or feeling sorry for them; but displaying love, fellowship and kindness.Executive Director made a broader appeal on behalf of Albinos.  She called on government and the larger society to help provide quality education form these people, in order to equip them with the intellectual preparedness and skills they need to live in society.We call on all people of goodwill, wherever they are–in families, clubs, civic and social groups, educational and religious institutions, Non-Governmental Organizations and the business community to think of ways in which they can help Albinos.This is society.  We also appeal to the government of Liberia to think creatively of ways in which its various entities can help these people.  The government runs many educational institutions, including primary, secondary, vocational, technical and tertiary ones.  GOL should challenge each of these institutions to find ways in which they can creatively involve these people and absorb them in the various educational facilities.Students, faculty and staff everywhere should be given special skills in dealing not just with Albinos but all others with special needs, so that there exists an atmosphere of camaraderie, friendship and belonging.GOL and other groups should offer scholarship opportunities to Albinos to give them easier access to schools. We further call on employers to open their doors to Albinos.  This will enable them to feel a normal part of society and help them to integrate more freely amongst their compatriots.All organizations catering specifically to the needs of Albinos should help them with communication skills that will empower them to relate more effectively among themselves and with others. We believe that these ideas will help our Albino compatriots to fit more easily in society and feel a greater sense belonging and citizenship.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

1546 cases filed under ‘Operation Safeway’

first_imgNearly two weeks after ‘Operation Safeway’ was launched in efforts to curb the spiking road fatalities, over 1500 cases have been filed against errant road users.Traffic Chief Dion MooreAccording to the Guyana Police Force (GPF), a notable decrease in all categories of road accidents is evident just eight days after the operation was launched.It has long been identified that the main causes of accidents are often speeding and drunk driving, and despite several steps undertaken by the GPF to discourage the practice, drivers continue to operate recklessly on the country’s roadways.Under ‘Operation Safeway’, a total of 1546 cases were made out thus far: 567 were for speeding and 96 for driving under the influence of alcohol. Additionally, the police noted that on Friday night alone, 152 persons were given a breathalyzer test and 28 were found to be above the legal limit.In light of increasing fatal accidents on the country’s roadways, the Police Force on September 15 launched ‘Operation Safeway’ in another effort to clamp down on the worrying occurrence.To this end, on Thursday last the Traffic Department received additional equipment for distribution to the various divisions to aid in the exercise.Traffic Chief, Dion Moore, underscored the need for the ranks to be fully equipped to efficiently carry out their duties.Among the items distributed are radar guns, breathalyzers, flashing wands, reflector vests and traffic cones.“In all of the divisions, there will be ongoing operations by day and by night. At night, you will have more vehicular patrols and within those patrols you will find ranks providing random breathalyzer and speed testing hence the additional equipment,” the Traffic Chief stated.Moore had disclosed too that since the establishment of ‘Operation Safeway’, there has been one fatal accident at Unity, East Coast Demerara, which claimed the lives of two persons. He also detailed that the Division with the most arrests under this exercise is the ‘A’ Division (Georgetown/East Bank Demerara) followed by ‘B’ Division (Berbice).According to Traffic Chief Moore, the Traffic Department is currently utilising more than 200 ranks to execute the operation. Moreover, he disclosed that ranks are working on a 24-hour shift basis, with special emphasis on the night period.“We find within the nights, we have to take off the foot patrol ranks and utilise vehicles to have more mobile patrols for the exercise,” he remarked.‘Operation Safeway’ is ongoing and, according to the Traffic Chief, there is no tentative date when it will be relaxed. The aim is to have more road safety-conscious drivers and to promote better driving attitudes as well as road safety practices.last_img read more

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez hit with misconduct charge from the FA

first_imgNewcastle manager Rafael Benitez has been landed with a misconduct charge from the Football Association following comments made about the appointment of Andy Madley as referee for the match against Preston.The Spaniard had raised the issue of Huddersfield-born Madley taking charge of what was at the time a crucial game in the promotion race when Preston visited St James’ Park on Monday April 24, which Newcastle went on to win 4-1.Madley was born in Huddersfield and his home-town club were then potentially still in the race for automatic promotion, which Newcastle and Brighton have since secured.A statement from the FA on Thursday read: “Rafael Benitez has been charged with misconduct in respect of comments he made about the appointed match referee, prior to Newcastle United’s game against Preston North End on Monday 24 April 2017.“It is alleged his comments were improper and/or brought the game into disrepute contrary to FA Rule E3(1). He has until 6pm Tuesday9 May 2017 to respond to the charge.”Social media had been awash with conspiracy theories, and Benitez admitted in his pre-match press conference he had been “really surprised with the assignation”.The Spaniard said: ”I was really surprised with the assignation, but we have to trust the referees. We haven’t had too much luck this year with some decisions, but I have always a lot of respect for the referees.”I know it’s a difficult job. Hopefully everything will be fine and nobody will be talking about the referee at the end of the game.” 1 Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez last_img read more
