AFL Captain Completes Intensive Military Training in Nigeria

first_imgCaptain Stephen T. Tarplah of the Armed Forces of Liberia with Counselor Tunde J. SpencerCaptain Stephen T. Tarplah of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) has completed a 21-week intensive training in Kaduna, Nigeria.A release from the Liberian embassy in Abuja said a total of 172 African soldiers assembled for the 21-week training, which commenced on January 4.Rev. Tunde J. Spencer, the political counselor at the Liberian embassy, represented the Liberian Ambassador, Professor Al-Hassan Conteh, at a colorful ceremony which was recently held in Jaji, Kaduna.According to the release, Captain Tarplah was one of nine commanders of the rank of captain and their equivalents from other countries outside Nigeria who graduated from the Armed Forces Command and Staff College (AFCSC) of Nigeria in Jaji.The other seven commanders are from Botswana, Cameron, Republic of Congo, The Gambia, Ghana, Niger and Sierra Leone. They joined their Nigerian counterparts from both the Nigerian Navy and Air Force.The Nigerians, who numbered 163, comprised 91 Nigerian Army personnel; 39 from the Nigerian Navy; 28 from the Air Force; five non-military personnel from the Nigerian Intelligence Agency (NIA), Nigerian Defense Academy (NDA), Nigeria Prison Service (NPS), Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).Speaking at the Junior Course 83/2017 graduation, the Chief of Air Staff (CAS), who was the guest of honor, said the objective of the course is to develop the professional knowledge and understanding of selected officers of the armed forces in order to prepare them for increasing responsibilities.The CAS, represented by the Chief of Policy and Plans, Headquarters, NAF, Air Vice Marshal James Gbum, said “For the past 21 weeks, you have been thoroughly subjected to various demanding tasks that exposed you to several presentations, lectures, discussions, exercises and even tours outside the college which have been carefully put together for you to imbibe what General Douglas MacArthur, a former Chief of Staff of the United States Army, called ‘The Cardinal Virtues of a Soldier.’He added: “For members of the Nigerian armed forces, your sense of judgment in applying these skills would even be more apparent now that we are confronting a lot of internal security challenges in the country, most especially the menace of Boko Haram and the renewed militancy in the Niger Delta.”He urged them to brace up to the likely challenges and measure up to them with “courage, conviction and in the most professional manner.”The commandant of the college, Air Vice Marshal Suleiman Dambo, said the course is aimed at developing the command, analytical and communication skills of the students in order to equip them to effectively operate during single, combined or joint, and multi-agency service operations.He added: “There had not been a comprehensive review of the college curriculum since 2002, hence the college embarked on a comprehensive review from 2016 to January 2017, which has since been completed and provisional approval has been granted by the defense headquarters.”It is envisaged that the new curricula will better equip future graduates of the college with requisite professional military knowledge as well as the command and staff skills to handle contemporary operational requirements not only in Nigeria but anywhere in the world, the Vice Marshal said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Friday the Cellphone Man’ Comes Back to His Roots

first_imgFriday Cellphone ManAs Big Reconciliation Confab Gets Underway For November 29Liberian musician “Friday the Cellphone Man”, is in Liberia as a guest of the Balawala International and other members of the collective society to stage a beach jamboree on Friday, November 29, 2019.While in Liberia, ‘Friday’, who has been out of the country for over six years, will perform at the launch of a reconciliation concert to be held at the John Gbedze Beach Resort in Marshall, Margibi County.In an exclusive interview with this paper earlier this week, the Executive Director of Balawala International Mr. Kekura Kamara, alias “Malawala Balawala,” said the animated Liberian musician will also perform at concerts in Buchanan and other places.Mr. Kamara said the initiative, which is aimed at further cementing peace and reconciliation among Liberians, will be held under the theme: “Music fest” and will bring together key stakeholders.“The reconciliation musical program will be launched at the John Gbessay Beach with other concerts in Buchanan and in Monrovia for a road safety campaign. It will bring together stakeholders so that we can talk about peace and reconciliation. Reconciliation is not an instant thing, it’s a gradual process and takes the contribution of all Liberians and this is why, we, from the collective society, are organizing this event,” Mr. Kamara said.According to Mr. Kamara, the organizers of the occasion have already written the office of President George M. Weah, who is the chief patron of art and music, for support as well as other members of the public and private sector.“We have written the Office of the President and even though he has been out of the country, the acting president, Mr. Nathaniel McGill, has given us some green light about their own involvement,” he asserted.Mr. Kamara pointed out that aside from the various peace concerts, Friday will also visit a host of orphanage homes in Montserrado County to give back to society.“His coming here is not basically to make money, he will be going to give back to his roots. Funds generated from these concerts will be used to give back to society; he will visit several orphanage homes and homes of the disabled community,” he indicated.In a related development, Mr. Kamara has announced the re-launch of the nation’s popular television series, “Malawala Balawala”, on November 28, 2019 with support from the European Union.“There is a guy from the US who has completely digitized the movie and so, with some support from the European Union, the movie will be re-launched in Monrovia. We need to showcase our own cultural identities and Balawala is a good representative of that,” Mr. Kamara added.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Monthly Newsletter from Richard Neufeld

first_img**This is the first of a monthly column that MLA Richard Neufeld will be writing for Energeticcity.ca**I’ve been proud to serve as MLA for the Peace River North constituency since 1991. I’ve also been fortunate to be the provincial Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources since the BC Liberals formed government in 2001.I’ve worked and lived in the northeast for most of my life and am proud to call this region my home. Serving the public is something I’ve been doing most of my life. Before I became a Councillor, and eventually Mayor, in Fort Nelson, I worked in the oil and gas industry. – Advertisement -When I was asked to write a column for the new Energetic City website I was happy to oblige and look forward to making this monthly column just one way that I update my constituents on what the provincial government is doing for northeastern British Columbia. I also hope to use this space to talk about the oil and gas industry and what its future holds in our province.I’d also like to take this opportunity to encourage you to contact my office at any time about questions you may have about services offered by the provincial government. My office is located at 10104-100th Street in Fort St. John and can be reached by toll free at 1-866-263-0101 or via email at Richard.Neufeld.MLA@leg.bc.ca. The new Fort St John hospital project continues to move forward. The new hospital will provide enhanced services for northeastern British Columbians when complete.Advertisement Earlier this summer I announced a pair of LocalMotion grants for the communities of Fort St. John and Hudson’s Hope respectively. In Fort St. John, the provincial government is providing over $387,000 for the Community Trail project which will see the construction of a 1.5 km long (and three metre wide) trail on 86th street from 101st to 109th Avenue. The trail not only runs through the sports field and playground area, but helps to link several neighbourhoods and different parts of the city. The trail will also enhance safety for residents who previously had to walk on the shoulder of the road where no sidewalk exists as trail users will be distanced from vehicle traffic.Hudson’s Hope will receive approximately $4,400 to construct a paved wheelchair ramp from the road to the library.The government also recently announced nearly $200,000 in funding from the Aboriginal Special Projects Fund for two programs that will focus on leadership and communication skills. I’ve recently become a grandfather and find myself even more cognisant of the importance of leaving a better future for our children and their children. I’m confident that the work we are doing today will make for a brighter tomorrow.last_img read more

Anemia drugs boost Amgen’s quarterly profit

first_imgExcluding a benefit from foreign exchange rates, total product sales rose 13 percent and international product sales rose 15 percent, the company said. Strong demand helped drive worldwide sales of the anemia-fighting drug Aranesp to $1.02 billion, up 14 percent compared to $893 million during the first quarter of 2006. Sales of Epogen, which is also used to treat anemia in chemotherapy patients, rose 3 percent to $625 million, compared to $604 million in the year-ago quarter. Combined sales of Neulasta and Neupogen, which prevent infections in chemotherapy patients, rose 14 percent to $1.02 billion, compared to $896 million in the year-ago period. The growth was driven primarily by rising demand for Neulasta, Amgen said. North American sales of Amgen’s rheumatoid arthritis drug, Enbrel, rose 11 percent to $730 million, compared to $658 million a year ago. Last week, the company disclosed the results of an Aranesp study that showed there wasn’t a statistically significant difference in the risk of death when compared to placebo, meaning the drug failed to help late-stage cancer patients receiving chemotherapy live longer. The drug, which works by raising a person’s red blood cell count, was approved to treat anemia associated with chronic kidney failure. It was the company’s best-selling drug last year, with $4.12 billion in sales. Patients in the clinical trial who received the drug showed a significant boost in hemoglobin concentration and a significantly lower risk of blood transfusion, compared to placebo. Shares of Amgen rose 22 cents to close at $62.19 on the Nasdaq Stock Market. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

THOUSAND OAKS – Amgen Inc., the world’s most profitable biotechnology company, reported higher first-quarter profit and revenue Monday on strong sales of its anemia-fighting drugs, but its revenue total for the quarter failed to meet Wall Street’s expectations. For the quarter ended March 31, the Thousand Oaks company reported net income of $1.11 billion, or 94 cents a share, compared with $1 billion, or 82 cents per share, in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted for expenses related to employee stock-options, costs associated with company acquisitions and other expenses, the company said it earned $1.27 billion, or $1.08 a share. On that basis, the earnings met Wall Street analysts’ expectations for earnings per share, according to a survey by Thomson Financial. Amgen’s total revenue rose 15 percent to $3.68 billion, from $3.21 billion in the same quarter last year. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Financial had expected sales of $3.73 billion. Amgen said it expects its adjusted earnings per share for the year to be on the low end of $4.30 and $4.50 per share. The company said it was reviewing its guidance for future revenue and would seek to cut operating expenses. “Our key products delivered good sales growth during the quarter,” Kevin Sharer, Amgen’s chairman and chief executive, said in a statement. Total product sales rose 14 percent during the most recent quarter to $3.6 billion, compared to $3.1 billion in the year-ago period. Amgen’s U.S. sales totaled $2.9 billion, up 12 percent from $2.6 billion in the same period last year. International sales rose 22 percent to $681 million from $556 million in the year-ago period. last_img read more

House homeless, not the elephants

first_imgMake no mistake: These girls suffered, big-time. On our dime. According to www.elephantvoices.org, “foot disease, caused by decades standing on the concrete floors of the traditional zoo enclosure, is the number one source of pain, suffering and premature death.” Foot disease, and related complications, is what killed Gita. And you can imagine how badly it impacted her emotional well-being. So it is shocking that Villaraigosa and the City Council continue to pour tens of millions of dollars into expanding the zoo’s elephant exhibit, with an “improved” living space of 3.5 acres? Compounding this inherently flawed plan is that the 3.5 acres can be subdivided into even smaller, unlivable sections. Activists say that free elephants can walk tens of miles per day and have a range of up to 120 miles. By Benjamin Franklin’s definition, building out the elephant exhibit at the zoo is insanity. It’s ironic, then, to watch the City Council on its TV station, Channel 35. BENJAMIN Franklin wrote that, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” I guess Ben Franklin didn’t live in Los Angeles. This week, a magnificent elephant named Ruby was finally granted parole by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the L.A. City Council, after imprisoning her at the L.A. Zoo for 20 years. Ruby is an innocent animal taken from her mother and natural environment when she was a baby. Her release came only after years and years of pleading by humans with a conscience. And, it came about a year after another elephant named Gita died a slow, physically painful and emotionally suffocating death at the L.A. Zoo. After nearly 50 years of suffering. And don’t forget Tara, who died just a few years earlier, at 39. As our elected officials keep animals against their will, in unnatural, expensive trappings, they haven’t found housing for one of the nation’s largest populations of homeless people. Then, when the suffering homeless people congregate on Skid Row, the LAPD descends on them to make them scatter with all the dignity of a cockroach. No housing for homeless people. Forced housing for animals imported from another continent. How wrong is that? Here’s a novel idea: Move all of the elephants to the PAWS Sanctuary where Ruby is now living, and take the tens of millions of dollars that have yet to be fully sunk into the elephant exhibit and renovate one of those large, empty office buildings in downtown for the homeless. Then, free the zoo’s long-suffering primates by shutting down the zoo altogether and using the land to save a thousand more homeless or low-income people that we’re told City Hall cares for. The headlines would read, “Elephants & apes freed. Thousands of homeless housed!” And only vote for people who’ll make those headlines a reality. It can happen if we care enough.

Manchester City starlet ready to fight for first team place

first_img Karim Rekik in action for PSV Manchester City youngster Karim Rekik wants to prove to manager Manuel Pellegrini that he is ready to play for the champions.The 19-year-old centre-back was farmed out on loan to Dutch side PSV last season and was a mainstay in their defence.The promising Dutchman was named in Holland’s provisional 30-man World Cup squad on the back of his performances, which has led to interest from the likes of Marseille, and he feels he is now ready to fight for a place alongside City captain Vincent Kompany.“I played every game and that is important for a young player. It was a great experience, you grow as a person and physically, it was a great step for me,” he told CityTV about his return to Holland.“I experienced playing every game in a full stadium with a lot of people and that is great, it’s the first time I have played more than 30 games for a team at first-team level.”When asked if his time in the Eredivisie had prepared him for a place in the Premier League, he said: “That is my vision, that is what I want. I will see if I am ready, it’s the manager’s choice.“I have spoken to him and he said I had a great season last year and he watched a few of my games and that I need to work hard now and fight for my place.“I need to impress Manuel and it is up to him to decide If I am ready for the first team or not.” 1last_img read more

GATHER ONE AND ALL – CARN COMMUNITY SCHOOL TO ATTRACT FORMER PUPILS

first_imgOne of Co Donegal’s biggest secondary schools is to become a huge focal point for next year’s The Gathering Ireland 2013.Carndonagh Community School in Donegal has over 10,000 former pupils that can be traced across 90 countries over a 40 year period.In August 2013 they plan to host the Carndonagh Community School Gathering that will bring together alumni and/or their descendants to Carndonagh for a massive reunion. Already 2,100 people across the world have expressed an interest in the Gathering reunion through their website and Facebook pages.Organiser John Collins said “We’re very excited about the prospects of the Carndonagh Community School 40th Anniversary Reunion. It’s potentially a gathering of massive proportions, incorporating not only the school itself but the community at large”.Momentum for The Gathering Ireland 2013, the most ambitious tourism initiative ever undertaken in Ireland, continues to grow following a successful series of community meetings across the country.Jim Miley, Gathering Project Director stated: “There has been terrific energy and creativity at the community meetings, as communities mobilise in advance of The Gathering Ireland 2013. The Gathering Ireland 2013 is a grass roots vision for people in Ireland to commit to finding ways to bring overseas contacts to Ireland in 2013. While there will be large headline national festivals and events throughout 2013, the real opportunity for success is through communities throughout Ireland holding creative and unique Gatherings. “The success of The Gathering Ireland 2013 relies on the people of Ireland getting behind the initiative and reaching out to people at home and abroad to celebrate this one-off yearlong celebration. Up to 50 town hall meetings are scheduled to take place and people from all walks of life are urged to attend, participate and get organising their own Gatherings.” GATHER ONE AND ALL – CARN COMMUNITY SCHOOL TO ATTRACT FORMER PUPILS was last modified: August 2nd, 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:Carndonagh Community SchoolThe Gatheringlast_img read more
