Liberia and Infidelity A Norm?

first_imgThe affect of infidelity is shocking, destructive and detestable. Although it’s not a word we often use within our culture – the noun is not foreign to us. Westerners would describe it as an act of being unfaithful to a sexual partner or a spouse. You may have experienced this first hand or got wind of it through a friend, neighbor or a family member. In this day and age, a woman or a man stepping out of their matrimonial home is no longer a foul thought. Liberian men, unlike some West African men are often praised for the level of respect and freedom given to their better half. In a typical Liberian Household, the woman is the glue that keeps the home together – fully functioning. Neither would like to rock the boat, due to the mutual admiration they both share (so I thought).  Despite being situated in West Africa, we have a tendency to go against our indigenous upbringing. As we continue to embrace western cultural practices, we are unconsciously living up to our nickname   “America’s Step Child” and slowly losing our identity. Maybe, having been through years of disruption and being seen as a rebellious nation, through the lenses of the international community, we have lost the will to follow through with basic commitments.Liberia prior to the Ebola outbreak was, as some would say, “sweet “. In the name of “jolly-jolly” after work or school, we frequently entertained ourselves at various nightclubs, bars and entertainment spots; abandoning our moral values along the way. Please note, infidelity does not have a gender, it can go either way.  Our habitual manner – being free spirited and living as we please – has not only affected our relations, but it has a profound effect on our reputation.On the 22nd of October, a Liberian blog site (C Liberia Clearly) published the alleged affair of model, Macdella Cooper and Ambassador George Weah.  The post received a mixed response.Some frowned against it, commenting, “This is what is wrong with us, we take things as a cultural matter and we wonder why we are not developing. We frown on the president and corruption. Yet we say, it is okay for someone to have a child outside of his marriage and call it cultural? Wow!!! This, to me, is double standard. As I can see this is corruption in its pregnancy. When he becomes president, he will have many more girl friends and more babies and he will use the Liberian people’s money to take care of them. Do you expect us and our country to develop with behavior such as this? Just wondering.” On the contrary, a young male boldly wrote the following: “C Liberia Clearly, that’s reality, oh. George is not and won’t be the last to have child/children outside marriage.”“Another followed with this comment “Thanks, Mr. George Weah, for the new baby. Liberia needs to replace her lost population. War has affected us, now Ebola is on board and taking its toll.  Monogamy, in all things considered, is not good for us. Presidents Tubman, Tolbert, Doe, and Taylor practiced polygamy. Nothing ever happened.  Why not a simple presidential aspirant?”As stated above, our past leaders (allegedly) practiced polygamy. Infidelity has long been imbedded into our culture.  Should we now denounce our biblical teachings and upbringing, because infidelity is “reality” to some Liberians?Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Oporto Restaurant Reinstates Two Dismissed Employees

first_imgLabor Minister Moses Y. Kollie – Advertisement – Two employees of the Oporto Restaurant in Sinkor have commended the Minister of Labour, Moses Y. Kollie, for his timely intervention in their situation through a social dialogue, which led to their reinstatement by the restaurant’s Management.According a communication addressed to the Minister of Labour, dated June 10, 2019, the Management said that Messrs. William Gayflor and Nathan Membeh, both chefs at the restaurant, were dismissed, citing Chapter 14, Section 14.3 of the Labour Law of Liberia, which underscores ‘grounds for immediate termination of employment’.According to the communication, the decision of the said management to have the pair dismissed was precipitated by their continuous misconduct and misleading of staff.“On June 7, 2019, they were caught inciting staff to leave work ahead of the end of normal working hours. This behavior is harmful to our business and therefore, the Management decided to terminate the services of both employees effective immediately,” the communication noted.However, on June 21, 2019, while the Minister and some staff of the Ministry were attending the 108th Session of the International Labor Organization (ILO) in Geneva, Switzerland, the two dismissed employees also filed a formal complaint with the Ministry, against their employer.According to a statement from the Labor Ministry, without awaiting the Ministry’s intervention into the complaint, the two dismissed workers chose to take their issue to the media and, for some days, took to a local radio station to discuss the issue in a manner that suggested that the Ministry was insensitive to the complaint of the workers.As a result, the attention of the Ministry of Labour was drawn to the matter; thus leaving the Minister with no other alternative but to invite both the Management and dismissed workers to a conference on Wednesday, July 10, 2019 at noon, at the Ministry of Labour.Following nearly an hour of intense negotiation and social dialogue, led by Labour Minister Kollie, the Management agreed to accept the former workers back on job based upon the intervention of the Ministry, thereby withdrawing the letters of dismissal issued them.The workers also accepted to sign their letters of warning which they had earlier refused to sign, according to them, because of lack of clarity, which also propelled their dismissal.Both management and the two workers assured the Ministry that they would work together in peace and ensure that such a situation does not reoccur in the workplace.“These two guys are the most important employees and highest paid staff at our restaurant and we have had no problem with them until this day. I even tried calling them on several occasions to return to work because in the restaurant business, the customers go after the best service and these guys are people who have been preparing our meals for the last two years. I reminded them that they have families that they need to care for, but they refused to return,” Zaid Abdel Khalek, General Manager of the Oporto Restaurant disclosed during the dialogue.William Gayflor, who spoke on behalf of the two dismissed employees, admitted that they walked away on June 7, 2019 without approval from the Management and, upon their return to job, they were issued two letters of warning for the afore-cited offense, which they refused to sign, which led to their dismissal. Additionally, he admitted that they are well paid by the restaurant and as such, they are willing to resume work.“We want to thank the Minister of Labour for the way he and his team handled our case. They were unbiased in their judgement; they played their true role as “twins-mother” during the discussions, which has encouraged us to return to work without any precondition. We accept to return to work in good faith and promise that we are going to work in line with our bosses’ instructions like we did before and will do absolutely nothing to undermine the interest of the business,” they assured.Meanwhile, Labour Minister Moses Y. Kollie assured workers across the country that the Ministry of Labour is committed to ensuring that the rights of workers and employers are protected at all times in keeping with the Decent Work Act of Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Medical Waste Treatment Plant in Sight

first_imgDr. Mosoka Fallah addresses the press about the danger of the Lassa fever in Liberia.What could be the first modern waste Management Treatment Plant is in sight in the country, a release from the Ministry of Health said. This is the result of a collaborative effort between the National Public Health Institute of Liberia (NPHIL), and the German Federal Enterprise, Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).To meet the target, NPHIL and GIZ have begun the construction of a Centralized Health Care Waste Management Treatment Plant on the Disco Hill in Margibi County.When completed, according to a statement by NPHIL Acting Director-General Dr. Mosoka Fallah, the treatment plant will include an ash pit, renovation of the existing damaged incinerator; storage facility for waste before incineration, and hygiene center for disinfection and hand washing.Dr. Fallah described as essential that component of the country’s healthcare system to help minimize the spread of disease, which involves the management and proper disposal of medical waste.This latest project is part of several projects initiated by Dr. Fallah since he was appointed as acting director general.Recently, a central Environmental Water Laboratory was dedicated to do water and food quality, as well as chemical testing, the statement said.NPHIL’s responsibly is to prevent and control public health threats by promoting healthy outcomes and serving as a source of knowledge and expertise.Dr. Fallah commended the GIZ, Germany’s leading provider of international cooperation services, for its continual support to the NPHIL in particular and the healthcare delivery sector as a whole.The NPHIL’s statement also provided update on Lassa fever outbreak in the country. It said one new confirmed case was reported from Grand Bassa on October 28, 2019, and since then, the case is undergoing Ribavirin Treatment (RT).The statement also said that the Bong County response was a result of a successful collaboration among MoH, NPHIL, WHO, US-CDC, and other partners in providing technical, financial, and logistical support to the County Response Teams.From January 1 to October 22, 2019, a total of 120 suspected cases, including 23 deaths, have been reported. Of these, 33 cases have been confirmed by RT-PCR (Nimba-8, Bong-13, Grand Bassa-9, Grand Kru -1, Margibi-1 and Montserrado-1).The case fatality rate among confirmed cases is 33.3% (11/33). Males are mostly affected by the disease (52%) with confirmed cases, as compared to females.The statement also said that although Lassa fever is not new to Liberia, “it is a deadly viral disease that we are closely monitoring through NPHIL Surveillance System, which requires urgent attention.”The disease is spread by rodents or rats and through close contact with affected persons.Therefore, MoH and NPHIL are advising people to apply public health measures by keeping our environment clean; cover dishes to prevent rats urinating or excreting on them; by covering food in tightly-closed containers to prevent rats from playing in the food or drinking water. Do not eat rats because one can get the sickness by coming in contact with their blood, urine or feces. Do not dry food in open places where rats can reach; avoid body contact with affected persons and endemic zone; and or visit a health facility.If a malaria case is treated for 48 hours with no treatment, think Lassa that “we continue to improve our rapid response teams at the county, district and community levels, through the County Emergency Operations Centers, and to provide technical, financial and logistical support to the outbreaks,” NPHIL release 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

District officials optimistic about settlement

first_img• Photo Gallery: Teachers picketing WHITTIER – With a continuing series of protests by teachers as a backdrop, Whittier City School District officials Wednesday said they remain optimistic about reaching a contract agreement to end a stalemate that has dragged on for months. Teachers have been without a contract since July. Dozens of teachers have picketed before and after school outside of campuses and in front of the district’s headquarters. Earlier this week, about 40 marched with signs outside the district headquarters at Whittier Avenue and Wardman Street. “Why aren’t teachers a priority?” and “Whittier City School District does not value its teachers,” some of the signs read. “Teachers just want the district to make us a priority and offer a fair and equitable contract,” said Martha Winans, president of the Whittier Elementary Teachers Association, which represents district teachers. The talks appear to be stalled over salaries. The teachers are seeking a pay increase, but Winans would not specify a figure or a percentage amount teachers would accept. District officials also have refused to divulge whether their offer includes a raise or how much it would be. Winans said her union initially was hopeful that a settlement could be reached early, as was the case for East Whittier City School District teachers, who approved a contract agreement in October. But school board President Javier Gonzalez said an early settlement was never expected because officials had no idea in October that the district’s budget would be hurt by declining enrollment and the increasing costs of special education programs. “We’re not going to rush things just because they’re saying they don’t have a contract,” said Gonzalez, who also teaches math at a local high school. “They’re still getting paid,” he added. “But I do believe we’re very close” to a settlement, Gonzalez said. “It’s just a matter of continuing to work with what we’ve got.” On top of working without a contract, teachers over the past five years also have received the smallest salary increases, compared to six surrounding school districts, Winans said. She would like to see the district offer teachers a reasonable increase this year, then budget enough money for cost-of-living increases in 2007-08. Wednesday evening, school board members held a special meeting to receive an update on the negotiations before the next bargaining session, scheduled for Monday. Gonzalez, who has served on the board for the past nine years, said contract talks with teachers have gone smoothly for eight of those nine years. This year, however, was a challenge because other districts settled early and offered their teachers substantial raises. “We’re very close, but are we going to please everybody? No,” he said. “We have to focus on having good negotiations and that every child has a quality teacher in the classroom. “If teachers are not happy with this school district, then there are 1,100 other school districts up and down the state,” Gonzalez said. tracy.garcia@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3051160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Neymar scores on debut as PSG beat Guingamp 3-0

first_imgThe 25-year-old, at home in PSG’s all yellow change kit, played a part in the own goal scored by Jordan Ikoko that gave the away side the lead early in the second half.He then set up the second goal for Edinson Cavani with a superb pass in behind the Guingamp defence before completing a comfortable victory with his team’s third goal eight minutes from the end as PSG made it two wins from two to start the French season.“I’m very happy. The main thing was to win. The team played well and I played well,” Neymar, speaking in Spanish, told Canal Plus.“We are trying to improve all the time and we’ll get to know each other better yet, but it is easy to play with players of such quality.“It is always very important to score, not just in the first game. I am very calm. This is a very big challenge for me as a person, but we have a great team and the season has just started.”Guingamp’s French defender Lucas Deaux (L) vies with Paris Saint-Germain’s Brazilian forward Neymar during the French L1 football match August 13, 2017 © AFP FRED TANNEAUDespite the many distractions of the last couple of weeks, including trips to China, Portugal and the French Riviera and glitzy presentations to the media and PSG fans, Neymar lasted the full 90 minutes.He had taken the place of Javier Pastore in the Paris side in the only change from last week’s 2-0 win over Amiens, completing a 350 million-euro front three with fellow South Americans Cavani and Angel Di Maria.Neymar was one of four Brazilians in the PSG line-up, not including Brazil-born Italy midfielder Thiago Motta, for the game played before a sell-out crowd at the 18,000-capacity Stade du Roudourou.– Falcao hat-trick –Guingamp, a sleepy little town 500 kilometres west of Paris with a population of barely 7,000, may have been a slightly incongruous setting for such an occasion but the match was broadcast live in more than 180 countries according to his new club.That was a sign of the interest generated worldwide by Neymar’s transfer, which Qatar-owned PSG hope will help them conquer Europe after so far coming up short in the Champions League in recent seasons.Emery’s side are also desperate to regain the French crown after losing out to Monaco last season.Neymar, playing mainly as an inside left, threatened sporadically in the opening stages before his cross in the 35th minute found compatriot Marquinhos, who headed against the woodwork.Paris Saint-Germain’s forward Neymar (3rd-R) celebrates after scoring a goal with defender Thiago Silva during the French L1 football match against En Avant Guingamp (EAG) at the Roudourou stadium in Guingamp on August 13, 2017 © AFP JEAN-SEBASTIEN EVRARDHe then watched as a Cavani free-kick was tipped over by Karl-Johan Johnsson as the first half ended goalless.But PSG needed just seven minutes of the second half to get the breakthrough with Neymar involved in the build-up as Ikoko — a former PSG player — tried to play the ball back to Johnsson and succeeded only in passing it into his own net.Neymar then released Cavani with a delightful pass as the Uruguayan slotted home the second goal just after the hour mark.All that was missing was a goal of his own and that arrived eight minutes from the end as Neymar finished from close range following a Cavani cutback.PSG are second in the fledgling table, behind Lyon on goal difference. They are one of five teams to have maximum points after two games.Defending champions Monaco have also won both matches so far after Radamel Falcao netted a hat-trick in their 4-1 victory at Dijon earlier.Jemerson also scored for Monaco as Kylian Mbappe was left on the bench amid speculation linking him with a 180 million-euro move to either Real Madrid or PSG.Sunday’s other game in France saw Marcelo Bielsa’s Lille finish with 10 men in a 3-0 defeat at Strasbourg. 0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Paris Saint-Germain’s forward Neymar runs during the French L1 football match against En Avant Guingamp at the Roudourou stadium in Guingamp on August 13, 2017 © AFP JEAN-SEBASTIEN EVRARDPARIS, France, Aug 13 – Neymar wasted no time in making an impact on the field for Paris Saint-Germain, scoring on his debut in a 3-0 win at Guingamp on Sunday.The Brazilian world record signing was handed a start by coach Unai Emery for the game in Brittany, two days after international clearance came through for his 222 million-euro ($261 million) switch from Barcelona.last_img read more

The North West Hearing Clinic – listening to people’s needs for almost 20 years

first_imgAlong with their sight, a person’s hearing is one of the most important aspects of their well-being. Padraig MacGinty recognised this factor when he established The North West Hearing Clinic 19 years ago in Letterkenny.Since then he has been serving the needs of people with a hearing impairment from all over the North West region including throughout Donegal. The demand to cater for the well-being of people’s hearing was evident.Ten years ago he opened his second shop in Sligo and since then The Sligo Hearing Aid Centre has also become the place to go to for professional advice, top quality hearing aids and earwax removal.Padraig MacGintyPadraig is a Fellow of both the British and Irish Societies of Hearing Aid Audiology. He is the Registrar of the Irish Society of Hearing Aid Audiology.He says “the most reason people don’t want to get their hearing checked is because they are afraid they may need hearing aids. “However a simple look into the ear, very often reveals an ear canal full of wax that just needs to be extracted!“Years ago hearing aids were very cumbersome and unsightly that whistled a lot. Now they are very discreet, digitally intelligent and giving unimaginable results.“The world of hearing aid manufacturing has come a long way in recent years thankfully”.The North West Hearing Clinic – they listen to people’s needs when it comes to hearing.The North West Hearing Clinic – listening to people’s needs for almost 20 years was last modified: March 28th, 2017 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)last_img read more
