Neyor Launches L$1M Shakie Kamara Scholarship in West Point

first_imgThe chief executive officer and president of Morweh Energy Group in Liberia, Mr. Christopher Zeohn Neyor,  has launched the Shakie Kamara Memorial Scholarship Fund with LD$1 million as initial startup in West Point.The scholarship begins from ABC through 12 grades and will operate on consciousness and the sphere of larger society.Little Shakie Kamara, now known as the “West Point shooting victim,” died as a result of the severe injury he sustained during the August 20th, 2014 riot that broke out between the joined-Security Forces of the government of Liberia and residents of West Point, which was Ebola-quarantined.The 16-year old Shakie was shot in his legs by one of the bullets while trying to escape. Mr. Neyor, who spoke last Tuesday during the establishment of the Scholarship Fund in West Point, told the audience that: “West Point has been hit hardest in this ravaging war against the deadly Ebola epidemic. A casualty of the West Point Ebola Quarantine was the untimely death of a teenager, Shakie Kamara, who was not even yet of voting age. This was a young man who had gone on an errand like most children of his age and was caught in a shootout.”Neyor, who is an energy expert said: “We have come to identify with West Point in the fight against the Ebola virus that is taking a toll on our land. We have come to stand by West Point during this moment of pain and reflection from your quarantine nightmare. We have come to mourn with West Point for the loss of a youth who had all the possibilities of life before him. We have come to memorialize and immortalize Shakie Kamara.”In attendance were the families of Shakie Kamara and Titus Nuaha, the other teenager who received a bullet in the stomach and is fighting for his life.In his passionate speech, the Morweh Energy boss further stated, “We have also come to stand with the family of Titus Nauha, another victim of that devastating shootout, who is fighting for his life. We want to stand with the family so that  this young can live.”He told the gathering, “Shakie Kamara and Titus Nauha represent the plight of our young children in slum communities and rural villages who are our future, but for whom so little is being  done to prepare them for that future.”Mr. Neyor said launching the Shakie Kamara Memorial Scholarship Fund was a way of contributing to a new direction to rescue the children.For her part, Attorney Tupee Enid Neyor, wife of Dr. Neyor presented purse of LD$50,000.00 to the Shakie Kamara family for sustainability and also presented additional LD$20,000.00 to Titus family for urgent medical care on behalf of the Neyors.Mrs. Neyor then pledged to work with the family to get the wounded young man out of Liberia if necessary to save his life.Meanwhile, Liberia Cultural Ambassador Julie Endee, executive director of Crusaders for Peace, who is a collaborating partner with Morweh Energy, presented a check of LD$50,000.00 to assist with the medical costs for Titus Nuaha.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

South African classrooms go digital

first_img21 July 2015A teaching and learning programme to create paperless classrooms in 375 high schools would start rolling out today, said the Gauteng department of education.The programme is about combining and using a range of technology like interactive boards and mobile devices such as tablets and laptops with internet connectivity, to conduct teaching and learning. There will be unlimited data usage from 5am to 9pm.Empowerment and responsibility“A child of a domestic worker or a child of a gardener or a child of an unemployed parent will have a tablet in their hands,” Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi told Grade 12 pupils at the Grace Bible Church in Soweto. “Gone are the days where only those that are rich will have a quality education.”The top three students in their schools would also be given a four-year bursary, he said.“We are empowering you that when you finish your education and are given a form in a bank, and they ask you how much you earn, you will cancel that and say I don’t earn a salary, I pay salaries.”He warned that social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp would not be allowed on the devices. Pornography sites would also be blocked. “With every tablet, we will get an activity report which will show us which sites you visited,” he told the pupils.In numbers“The department has also purchased over 17 000 tablets for Grade 12 learners and 1 800 3D LED interactive boards that are currently being installed in matric classrooms at the targeted schools,” said the department.Over 4 000 classrooms were also re-furbished with new ceilings and specialised lights and blinds to cater for the lighting requirements of the interactive boards. The boards are integrated with the tablets to increase interaction between teachers and students during class.Security riskEarlier this year, tablets were recalled from schools. They needed to have additional security measures installed to stop theft of the devices.“The devices have been fitted with trackers to ensure that they are traceable should they get lost,” said the department. All schools were also linked to police stations to ensure rapid response.Lesufi said if a pupil’s device was being stolen, the student should not act like Rambo and fight the criminals. “Your life comes first.” In addition, if a matriculant did not return the device after the exams, the school would withhold the pupil’s results until it was returned.“This tablet belongs to government. not you. But you are allowed to take pictures with your friends and family.”The deadline for the completion of the renovations to the classrooms, mainly in schools in townships and rural areas, is the end of August.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Your Criticism Should Be Aimed at the Lazy

first_imgIt’s popular to rail against the social media figures that suggest that you should hustle and grind. Some find the idea of people working too much, too hard, and for too long to be bad advice, suggesting life is more than constant work. You will be warned to put your relationships before work, an idea with which I mostly agree, but not if your laziness prevents you from taking care of the people who make up those relationships.The criticism about people hustling and grinding applies to a small percentage of the overall population, with very few of them working themselves to death, or even to the point of burnout. The better criticism and unsolicited advice would be better directed towards those who are lazy, doing too little, with too little energy, and who avoid work.Unwilling to WorkWhen you are born, other people take care of you, making you a dependent. As you grow up, those people have to help make you independent—and you must become a self-sustaining, productive human being, as defined by whatever you believe those words mean. Choosing to be lazy is to violate the laws of nature.Nature requires you to expend effort to provide for your needs, like food, water, shelter, transportation, a Netflix membership, and excellent internet bandwidth. Nature doesn’t care whether you believe you should have to provide for yourself or not, and reality doesn’t mind hurting your feelings, nor does it care whether or not you suffer.If you like, you can choose to be unwilling to work (and it is a choice). You can choose to be idle, becoming less, doing less, having less, and contributing less. However, that is not what you were made for; you were made to exert effort, to create something useful to other people, to work.You might also put comfort, distraction, and entertainment before work, allowing it to crowd out what you should be doing, as well as taking your mind off the fact that you are procrastinating. What prevents laziness is your ability to will yourself to work, or self-discipline, or what I call “me management,” as those who cannot manage themselves end up with difficulties that multiply over time.If there is criticism to be directed at individuals about work, that critique should be for those who do too little—not that those whom some may believe do too much.

IPL 2017, MI vs DD Highlights: How Mitchell McClenaghan, Jasprit Bumrah scripted Mumbai’s victory

first_imgHello and welcome to the LIVE COVERAGE of Match 25 of the Indian Premier League between the Mumbai Indians versus the Delhi Daredevils in Mumbai.

Smiles all around in the Mumbai camp and the players are looking really happy. What an effort from them! 9, 0, 5, 6, 0, 0, no that’s not a pin code. These are the figures of the top six Delhi batsmen. This pretty much sums up where they lost the match. It was always looking a tough task after the start they got but Chris Morris and Kagiso Rabada stuck together, stitched a 91-run stand to take their side really close. However, some outstanding death bowling from Jasprit Bumrah sealed the deal for Mumbai. He allowed only 9 runs in his last two overs (17th and 19th of the match) to ensure that Hardik Pandya has a cushion of 25 runs to defend in the final over.So, it’s down to the final over!Bumrah bowls a gorgeous over.

Great start for Delhi as they have managed to remove four top batsmen from the opposite team. Mumbai are under the pump and need partnerships.

The one time they batted first in this season, they ended up on the losing side. Is the story going to repeat? Anyways Rohit’s struggle against spin continues. Mishra tosses this up around off, Rohit Sharma kneels and sweeps it. However, he fails to find the gap between deep square leg and deep mid-wicket. Pat Cummins goes to his left in the deep and reverse cups the opportunity. A huge, huge blow for Mumbai to lose their captain so early. Delhi is all smiles and why not they have dismissed four Mumbai batsmen for just 60. Mumbai Indians 60/4 (8.1 overs) vs Delhi Daredevils20.39 IST: WICKET! Pat removes the in-form Nitish Rana and Mumbai are in a bit of a bother here. Cummins bowls it short and around off, Rana goes back and pulls it hard.

Sanju Samson storms ahead from cover-point, gathers the ball and hurls a throw at the striker’s end and connects. Buttler is not even in the picture and has to depart. Rana is upset with himself to call the Englishman for a run. Buttler goes in a disappointing manner. Outstanding work by Samson too.

Tare and Anderson are playing.”19.42 IST: Rohit Sharma at the toss,”Malinga is under the weather, he’s not feeling well. We have left him out. Mitchell Johnson comes in for him. We have been playing well for the last couple of weeks. We have not batted first, so it is a challenge for us. Not really. It looks the same track like the one in 2016. Seems a bit dry and there will be some bounce for the fast bowlers. You got to use it to your advantage and we have to put up a good show. We have played enough cricket here to understand what the surface does.”19.39  IST: Kagiso Rabada makes in IPL debut.19.37 IST: Mitchell Johnson returns in place of Malinga.#Malinga is unwell tonight and @MitchJohnson398 will play his first game for us this season. #MIvDD #CricketMeriJaan- Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) April 22, 201719.35 IST: Delhi win the toss, will bowl first. “We haven’t batted first here and it gives us a challenge.”@ImRo45 is up for it! #MIvDD #CricketMeriJaan #MI- Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) April 22, 2017TOSS:The coin doesn’t land our way this time around.

A lesson in chasing down the big scores, courtesy @josbuttler.#CricketMeriJaan #MI pic.twitter.com/Yg4Z2d8E7d- Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) April 22, 2017BRIEF PREVIEW:In-form Mumbai Indians will look to exploiting their home conditions when they take on Delhi Daredevils in an Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Wankhede Stadium here on Saturday.Sitting at the top with five wins in six matches, Mumbai will look for their sixth consecutive win in the ongoing edition as the home side seems superior to the visiting side on current form and paper.The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai had a nagging concern about the non-performance of their top-order — but it also clicked in the last match against Punjab.Mumbai’s middle-order batsmen, especially Nitish Rana, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya, have been in prime form.The bowling department seemed balanced as Mumbai have a bunch of experienced bowlers in their line-up.Veteran pacer Harbhajan Singh has been fantastic in the first six overs, while Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah have been consistent in the death overs. Mitchell McClenaghan has also provided the breakthroughs at the crucial moments.On the other hand, Delhi, who are currently at the fourth spot with two wins and three losses, lost their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) despite a good performance.Packed with young batsmen like Sam Billings, Sanju Samson, Karun Nair and Shreyas Iyer, the Zaheer Khan-led Delhi’s strength lies in their array of talented seam-bowling all-rounders.Bowlers like Chris Morris, Corey Anderson, Angelo Mathews and Pat Cummins provide the depth and balance to the side. But the exciting team sometimes faces an absence of a pivot around which the team will bat.So, in the clash, Delhi will be eyeing a win this time to regain their winning momentum.last_img read more

Robin Roberts Opens Up In AARP The Magazine

first_imgRobin Roberts, who at 54 enjoys so much personal and professional success, has also overcome a great deal of adversity along the way.Cover of AARP The Magazine’s April/May IssueThe first to admit that she never dreamed she’d go so far, so fast, Roberts opens up in an emotional interview with AARP the Magazine, in which she reminisces about some of her most memorable experiences. In a wide-ranging interview, covering everything from the time she openly wept on-air while covering Hurricane Katrina to the day she returned to co-anchor ABC’s Good Morning America after her bone marrow transplant, the television broadcaster expresses fear and gratitude, happiness, and pride, as she talks about the path that led her to being the gutsy, go-for-it — but empathetic — woman she is today.The following are excerpts from the April/May issue of the AARP The Magazine cover story featuring Robin Roberts, available in homes today and online now at www.aarp.org/magazine.On looking forward after facing her life-threatening illnesses: 
”I think of September 20, the date of my transplant, as my birthday more than my real birthday, on November 23. I don’t try to be like people who have had life-threatening illnesses and say, ‘Every day is a gift.’ But everything that happens from now on is lagniappe, as we say in the Gulf.”On returning to Good Morning America after her bone marrow transplant: 
”Just the emotion of seeing people who I know didn’t think they were going to see me again. Some people were, like, why were you in such a hurry to get back? It wasn’t about being back on TV. It was about being back in life. I could’ve stayed longer in an isolated room, but I didn’t want life to continue to pass me by. I wanted to participate in life. Put me in, Coach. I’m ready to play.”On remembering the historic interview between her and President Barack Obama: 
”Yes, for the president of the United States of America to change his stance on marriage equality, that was huge. And to be the person across from him asking that question! But see the little look on my face? I’m reacting to my producer on the side, who’s just held up one of those blue cards. I was guessing the sign was going to say, ‘You rock!’ Instead, it says, ‘Lipstick on teeth!’ As my mama used to say, ‘When you strut, you stumble.’”On openly weeping on air while covering the devastation of her hometown by Hurricane Katrina: 
”Covering Hurricane Katrina was a real moment for me, personally and professionally. On the air, I broke down and cried when Charlie Gibson asked about my family. I had just found my mother and sister within the hour. They hadn’t been able to evacuate because my mom was ill. The family house was damaged, but they were fine. After the broadcast, I remember taking my earpiece out and thinking, ‘I don’t have a job anymore.’ Because it was a time when you didn’t show emotion like that.”On the day she honored both her father and the Tuskegee Airmen: 
”Good Morning America had said to me, ‘If you could do anything, what would that be?’ My father was from the famed Tuskegee Airmen. I said, ‘I want to fly a plane like my dad did.’ Now, I didn’t mean I actually wanted to fly a plane that he flew! But we went back to Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama, and this old thing comes chugging down the runway. I’m, like, ’I’m getting in that?’”On her friendship with Pat Summitt, Head Coach Emeritus for the University of Tennessee Lady Vols: 
”Pat [Summitt] was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2011. I keep in touch, and she has more good days than not. I had always wanted to be a Lady Vol under her at the University of Tennessee, but, thinking about it, we probably wouldn’t have the friendship we have now if I’d been her player. I’ve got her back. And I love that she’s got a hashtag: #WeBackPat.”For the complete interview, along with behind the scenes video and images, click here.last_img read more
