The Gbowee Peace Foundation Africa, with support from the African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF), has offered US$20,000 to several women’s groups in Monrovia and its environs.Founded in 2001, the AWDF is the first pan-African foundation to support the work of women’s rights organizations in Africa.Making the disclosure last Wednesday at a one-day Ebola awareness workshop at her Congo Town office, the Executive director of the GPFA, Williametta Saydee-Tarr, said that the grant was intended to provide capacity building for women and girls in Liberia.According to her, the empowerment of women in the country is one of AWDF and GPFA’s major priorities in the Ebola fight.The GPFA and AWDF workshop brought together 18 persons from several community-based groups and was facilitated by a monitor on Ebola from the Ministry of Health, Ms. Dwaeade R. Musue.“As you know we have worked with several community-based groups, but this time, our donor, AWDF, has encouraged us to engage females directly because they are the primary care-givers in the home,” she said.Although the Ebola epidemic is slowing down, Liberians should not be complacent about it, she advised participants.“We have to make sure that we keep on our toes regarding the safety of our homes and communities and our lives from the disease and female-led organizations should help in the fight against the virus.” “We are interested more in contact tracing and how to stimulate survivors and see how survivors can be part of the society,” Madam Tarr indicated.She disclosed that the 12 women’s groups engaged by the Gbowee foundation were from slum communities in Monrovia, Bong and Nimba counties.Madam Tarr said: “Giving you the funding is to ensure that you can go into the communities to create awareness,” adding, “ we can’t be complacent, we want to be sure that the virus is eradicated from Liberia.” She indicated that in February the foundation will start the next phase which will concentrate on contact tracing and wellness validation to ensure that residents are well and that they are able to say there is no sick person within the community.The GPFA executive director noted that in December of last year, eight groups were awarded grants and now 12 groups would benefit during this phase.She also disclosed that the foundation is working with local media institutions in the country to inform other partners about GPFA activities. “The media institutions are involved because we want the public to be informed about the outcome of the grant and how it was used by beneficiaries,” she said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
– demands Union President explain himself before General CouncilTrouble is brewing following the announced acceptance by the Guyana Teachers Union (GTU) of the Government’s increases for teachers, with some questioning how the Union went from the recommended 40 per cent increases to as low as eight per cent.Vanessa Kissoon, a former People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) parliamentarian and teacher who hails from Linden, took to social media to question the accepted offer while pointing out that a task force had recommended 40 per cent increases for the initial year of the agreement. As such, she called for a review of the decision by the General Council.“It isn’t what it is until we go through the agreement with a fine-teeth comb and approve its signing by our leaders. Nothing is agreed to until all are agreed. TheFormer Member of Parliament, Vanessa Kissoonmembership will have to decide this,” Kissoon declared.She spoke of reports that more than half of the teachers will not get any increase. This, she related, is reportedly because whatever the Government imposed in 2016 will be deducted from the 10 per cent.“Is this a fact? How is it that an agreement is prepared accepting that many teachers will get no increase and on the increase, some will only be paid the difference between what they get and the new percentage? The teachers of Linden/Region 10 were told the leadership will not be accepting less than 20 per cent. Now we have gone to single digit (figures).“The teachers in all 10 regions were told that the Union is going to arbitration and we supported it. We want valid reason for the change of mind. There needs to be a General Council to sort this out. Teachers feel they have been sold out by (GTU) President (Mark) Lyte. He needs to come forward and speak.”General CouncilAccording to Kissoon, teachers are in the dark about the details of the agreement. She, therefore, urged the executive to make the details public, but more so, explain them to the membership.“The General Council gave you a proposal in 2015 to negotiate salary and non-salary benefits. It is reasonable to expect that you will return to the General Council to get approval to sign any agreement. That General Council will have to go to the membership to get their approval.“Teachers’ approval is needed before any agreement is signed. The Union belongs to the teachers. The teachers want answers and opportunity to express their views on the agreement before it is signed.”The former MP noted that a new agreement would alter teachers’ lives significantly. She also reminded the GTU executives that they were not negotiatingGTU President Mark Lyteon behalf of themselves but rather a nation of teachers.Kissoon went on to explain that when teachers terminated their September 2018 strike, it was with the full understanding that GTU leaders would be taking the issue of salary and non-salary benefits to arbitration.“We stood by you when you called on us to strike. We supported you when you ended the strike with full understanding this is what you are going to do. Now, teachers are reading that you have said the Union will not go to arbitration. To the best of my knowledge, teachers didn’t know about this nor gave permission to not go to arbitration.”“Mr Lyte and Ms McDonald, repeatedly, teachers were told by you that the Task Force recommended 40 per cent be paid in 2016 and five per cent for 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. How can you move from 40 per cent to single digits without the arbitration panel saying this is what can be paid? Please call a General Council by Monday or Tuesday. Those in far-flung areas can participate via WhatsApp,” Kissoon added.More than one month after a nationwide teachers’ strike was called off, Government finally agreed to increase the salaries of teachers by 12 per cent for 2016 and eight per cent for 2018.This was disclosed on Friday at the Education Ministry’s Brickdam, Georgetown office, following a six-hour discussion between Education Minister Nicolette Henry and executives of the GTU.At the time Lyte had claimed that the Union was “pleased” with the decision. But GTU General Secretary Coretta McDonald had had a different outlook on the offer. She had declined to go into details, save to say that “teachers deserve more”.

ROWLAND HEIGHTS – The county is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the killer of a La Puente man, who sheriff’s deputies say was the victim of road rage. Paul Doherty, 25, drove himself to the sheriff’s Walnut Station in his silver 2001 Toyota Tacoma pickup in the early morning hours of Oct. 8. He was bleeding from multiple stab wounds, deputies said.“He was going downhill very fast,” said Detective Steven Weireter, who said Doherty died later at a hospital.Doherty told deputies he had been attacked, but was unable to provide a description of his attacker, Weireter said.“This is a terrible case. We really don’t have a lot to work on,” Weireter said. “We’re hoping the enticement of some money will make someone do the right thing.”Doherty’s fiancee, Denise Serrato, told deputies the killing may have been the result of road rage. She said before the stabbing, Doherty made a right turn off Springport Drive in Rowland Heights around 1:30 a.m. Oct. 8 and cut off another driver.Serrato, who was following in another car as she and Doherty left a friend’s home, said the driver tailgated Doherty as he sped away. Both cars turned onto Colima Road, heading east, she said.Serrato said she lost track of them, but around 3 a.m., she got a phone call; Doherty had been stabbed by the enraged driver, somewhere along Colima Road.The car tailgating Doherty’s truck looked like an old Cadillac with two doors, possibly black, Serrato said.She said she thinks Doherty was stabbed somewhere on Colima Road between Otterbein Avenue and the Los Angeles Royal Vista Golf Course.Doherty loved being surrounded by family and enjoyed camping, soccer and spending time with friends, said childhood friend Lenny Hernandez, 29.Serrato said Doherty was studying for an associate’s degree at Chaffey College and planned to transfer to a university to study business administration.“This evil person not only took Paul’s life, but also took a piece of mine,” she said. “This is why I am seeking justice.”People with information are asked to call Weireter at (323) 890-5638 or Detective Jeff Leslie at (323) 890-5586. firstname.lastname@example.org(626) 962-8811, Ext. 2306
DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEREPORTS SATURDAYOld Orchard Saturday Division One Ramelton Mariners 2 Fintown Harps AFC 4Fintown Harps maintained their push for the Old Orchard Inn Division 1 title with a hard earned victory over the Mariners in monsoon like conditions at Rabs Park. Fintown took the lead in the 10th minute through Aaron Thompson and doubled their lead on 34 minutes through the same player. Fintown were well on top at the half-way mark.Mariners came out for the 2nd half with all guns blazing and halved the deficit on 54 minutes with a neat finish from Packie Durning after a through ball from Diggy Buchanan. The Mariners pressed for an equaliser but were caught on the break and Daragh Gallagher finished well on 70 minutes. Again Mariners upped their game and got back into the game in the 80th minute when again Packie Durning scored, this time from the penalty spot after Peter Brannigan had been fouled in the area. With time running out it was Fintown who scored again 2 minutes into injury time, again from Daragh Gallagher. A sporting contest Referee: Barry Hunter.Glencar Celtic 3 Glenea United Reserves 0In wet and windy conditions Glencar started very brightly and they kept the ball very well but didn’t really trouble the Glenea goal for the majority of the half. However they did break the deadlock on the 35th minute. Great work from Chris Malseed in the middle of the park played in Mickey Molloy who fed Garvan Grieve who held his composure to finish well. Glenea came out of the traps determined in the second half and could have found themselves ahead hitting the woodwork twice. Glencar weathered the storm and went two up on the hour mark when Martin Brogan’s free kick was turned in by Michael Molloy. Glenea pushed hard again, this time hitting the post. But with Glenea looking to salvage something from the game and time running out Glencar nicked a third with a tidy finish from Paddy Collins from 30 yards who took full advantage of the keeper being out of position. Two good team performances. Referee: Ed Moore.Erne Wanderers 3 Castlefin Celtic Reserves 2Erne Wanderers hosted Castlefin Celtic on Saturday in dreadful conditions in the last league game of the year at the Lakeside Centre. They came out on top in a five goal thriller to keep in touch with the league leaders thanks to a screamer from an inform David Dolan. The home team burst out of the traps and took the lead after just 12seconds when the Celtic keeper came rushing out to clear a through ball. He miscued and cleared straight to David Dorrian in the centre of the pitch 25 yards out and he hit a left foot shot along the ground into an empty net. The second goal came on 15 minutes when Dorrian won possession in midfield and then fed Russell who played a great pass to Micheal Mc Neely who collected it 25 yards out, steadied himself and let fly into the bottom corner. Erne’s backline had to be on top of their game to keep tabs on JP Mailey and were doing solid job. Erne were dominating possession and created a few more chances but were wasteful either in front of goal or with the final pass. Castlefin got a break in the 38th minute when the ball broke to Mailey and he burst through and rounded the keeper to half the deficit. The second half started with Wanderers in possession again but it was proving difficult to control their passing with the wind at their back. With the ball holding up for Mailey now against the wind he was always a threat in behind and he broke free on 65 minutes and laid the ball off to Ronan Tourish who slotted home into the far corner. Castlefin were on top for a period after this but Erne weathered the storm. They got the winner with 10 minutes left on the clock when McNeely swung over a great cross and it was half cleared to the edge of the box where David Dolan met it on the half volley and blasted it in off the underside of the crossbar. A strike worthy of winning any match. Castlefin never really looked like getting a leveller. A solid team performance from the home team with the midfield of Russell and Dorrian getting through a mountain of work and Dolan on the wing a constant threat. JP Mailey was the main man for the visitors. Referee: Brian O’ KaneDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE REPORTSSUNDAYBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionGlenea United 0 Milford United 0 In cold condition Glenea continued their unbeaten run in the league but neither side was able to find a goal to win the game. Playing with the wind it was the away side that started brightest and on 15 minutes PJ Hagan found himself free in the box but pulled his shot wide. As the half progressed Glenea came more into the game and on 30 minutes a Sean Maguire through ball put Sean McBride away but his ball across to Ryan McFadden was cut out by the Milford defence. Minutes later Kevin Mulhern broke through the middle and got onto Padraig McGee’s pass and lifted the ball over the keeper only to see it fall the wrong side of the post. In the 2nd half Glenea dominated the possession but were finding it hard to create any clear cut chances with Ryan McFadden going close from a narrow angle and then Donal Coll saw his effort deflected onto the post. Milford were finding it hard to create any goal chances and their only effort was from a free-kick which was saved. Team efforts from both sides. Referee: Marty Mc GarrigleLifford Celtic 2 Curragh Athletic 0Lifford gathered a much needed three points against a determined Curragh side. The weather or pitch conditions didn’t favour either side but Lifford settled quickest as Johnny Robb calmly finished at the second attempt following a through ball from Kevin Mc Brearty around the twenty minute mark. Lifford went further ahead on the half hour when Alan Gethins finished following good build up play from Ross Porter down the right flank. The second half began with the Curragh pushing more men forward but the Lifford rearguard of Mark McNulty and David O’ Herlihy stood strong. As full time approached Ronnie Carlin got through on the Lifford goal, from a Neil Lloyd pass, but Lee White was equal to the task in the Lifford net. Solid team performances from both teams.Watson Hire Division OneCappry Rovers 1 Drumoghill F.C. 1Cappry started the game brightly and pressed hard for the opening goal. They came close in the 10th minute when Darren O’Leary hit the post with a stunning free kick from 35 yards. In the 14th minute they took the lead through Gavin Reilly who’s long throw-in ended up in the net. The home side should have added to their tally before half time with Brendan Mc Laughlin going close on a couple of occasions. Drumoghill started the second half better and pressed for an equaliser. They got level in the 60th minute when Michael Doherty crossed for Liam O’Donnell to head home from inside the six yard box. Cappry responded well and pressed for a second goal. In the 70th minute the home team had a good shout for a penalty turned when Brendan Mc Laughlin was pushed by the Drumoghill keeper as he went round him. In the 74th minute Kevin Mc Glynn rounded the keeper and squared the ball to Brian Lafferty who had his effort cleared off the line by Brian Coll. Drumoghill went close through a Michael Doherty shot in the 82nd minute. In the 91st minute Alan Patton went close but saw his shot go just over the bar. A good team performance from Cappry. Best for Drumoghill were Damien Crossan and Brian Coll.Referee: Paddy Duffy.Eany Celtic 1 Kerrykeel ’71 F.C. 4Kerrykeel went away from Eany Park with full points despite being pushed hard by the home side. Johnny Friel went close on 10 minutes when he headed over the bar. Eany had a good chance five minutes later when Paul Mc Groarty shot just wide of the post . Mc Groarty was the provider when he put Barry Rose through to get Eany on the score sheet on the half hour . Eany held firm until just before half time when Kerrykeel scored twice in a three minute spell. The first was scored by Fergal Friel and Johnny Friel got the second. Eany started the second half well but despite all the effort couldn’t find the net. Kerrykeel were awarded a penalty against the run of play and despite a double save by Eany Keeper Cathal Gallagher, Johnny Friel scored to put the visitors 1-3 up. Kevin Loughrey scored the 4th goal for Kerrykeel with the last kick of the game. Good performances from both sides. Referee: Victor RaineyCT Ball Division TwoConvoy Arsenal v Copany RoversMatch referee Marty Quinn abandoned this game in the first half due to a player receiving an injury.Whitestrand United 3 Ballybofey United 1On a cold fresh day Whitestrand United took on Ballybofey United at Whitestrand Park. The match started with both teams evenly matched and not many chances coming to either. As the match wore on Whitestrand began to exert themselves more upon the game and a great chance went begging when Calvin McGowan latched onto a knockdown from Paul lynch but fired over the bar. Whitestrand had another chance when good build up led to Paul lynch having a shot but he skewed it wide. The first goal came on the half hour mark when Joe Blaney raced onto a pass from Paul Lynch and skipped past a defender before firing past the goalkeeper. It was a well deserved goal and a second nearly came for the home side when a spectacular overhead kick from Patrick Mc Groddy went wide of the post. They were made to rue that miss when a goalmouth scramble led to PH Bonar scoring the equaliser and the teams went in at half time all square.The second half started similar to the first with both teams trying to exert their dominance over the game. There weren’t many chances for either team in the earlier part of the half but the key moment came with about 20 minutes to go when Paul Lynch headed an excellent goal. It really was a crucial goal for the team and the icing on the cake came when Michael Sweeney broke through and finished superbly past the Ballybofey keeper. Ballybofey did push towards the end to attempt to get back into the game but Whitestrand held firm and earned what could turn out to be a priceless win. Best for the Strand were Paul Lynch and Joe Blaney.Deele Harps 2 Dunlewy Celtic 1Deele entertained Dunlewey on a wintry afternoon at The Athletic Grounds. The home side were dominant in the early exchanges but couldn’t force the breakthrough. Dunlewey threatened through the middle as the half progressed. In the 30th minute a superb move started by young James McNulty as he exchanged a one – two with Aidy Gallagher and then slid a perfect pass into Brian Breslin who finished well. In fairness to Dunlewey they kept going and were dangerous from set pieces. The second half was a scrappy affair with the pitch restricting any chance of good football but Deele extended their lead in the 60th minute when the impressive Brian Breslin once again terrorised the Dunlewey full back as he raced through from the wing and showed great composure to find Shane Gallagher who finished well from 6 yards. Dunlewey kept going and found a way back into the game when Christopher Cannon scored direct from a 20 yard free kick.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With lower prices and higher input costs in today’s soybean farming operations, some farmers are looking where to shave a few dollars off their costs of farming. Based on the calls directly from farmers on which seed treatments to use, it is not too hard to figure out where some of those savings might be coming from. This used to be general practice but there are ways to do this to be sure it really is saving farmer’s money.1. Make absolutely sure that this seed is a candidate to use again. The harsh reality of the new generation of technologies that go into the new soybean varieties is that it probably takes the total profit of the U.S. soybean crop to go from discovery, development, U.S. and European government approvals, and producing that seed. Companies are forced to protect that investment and in reality — part of how we have raised the state yield average from 30 bushels per acre to 52 bushels per acre is because of these improved varieties.2. Make sure your seed is healthy. Germination tests are very important, it was a tough fall and as you look at that seed there may be a lot of discolored, moldy seed from Phomopsis or Cercospora. There may also be splits — as some seed was harvested last fall well below 13%. Some of our seed was at 9% before we could get to the fields. So this will reduce your viability. Ohio Seed Improvement Association does have the appropriate seed germinators to run these tests for a fee. Also, for testing at home, use one of your baking dishes, line it with paper towels, and run water over it, drain the excess water, then scatter 100 or more seeds over the bottom of the dish. Cover again with more paper towels, add just enough water to moisten that top layer. Leave on the counter or in a warm room for 5 to 6 days, keeping the seed moist but not swimming in water, and check the germ. If it is not over 85%, it is probably best to buy new seed. Note use several pans from seed collected from the different fields.3. Don’t repeat problems, diseases from last fall. Three pathogens were in different areas of the state that can be carried with seed.• Sclerotinia stem rot or white mold: This popped up in several areas last year. The sclerotia, those hard black irregular shaped structures, can be harvested with the seed and then if not properly cleaned can end up back in the soil in the seed furrow. Also, some seed will have mycelium of the fungus, that white fluff that you see on the stems. This can also contribute to poor stands in the spring.• Phomopsis seed decay: White, chalky, moldy seed was quite common this year, especially in areas of the state that had a lot of rain during pod fill. This disease will directly impact seed viability. But some seed will carry the fungus on the outer layers, but it won’t have reached the internal layers. When a fungicide that targets this fungus is used, germination of the seed lot can be improved. Again, if overall germination is below 85% and the seed is really moldy, best to get new seed.• Purple seed stain: Especially in the southern counties, Cercospora blight, in addition to frogeye leaf spot made a late season appearance. First, a request, if you do have seed with symptoms of purple seed stain, there is a study, funded by the soybean check-off, in progress which is looking at all of the strains that cause this disease across the U.S. It helps us to have samples in this study. Please send these to me @ 1680 Madison Ave., Wooster, OH 44691. We will verify that they are the right fungus and ship them to our colleague.4. What seed treatments will work to protect germ and limit spread of these pathogens? Most of the data available today is based on Phomopsis, and there are a number of active ingredients that can protect seed. When the seed is contaminated with mycelium but not the germ, and when an infected seed is placed right next to a healthy seed in the seed furrow. Look for seed treatments that have one of the following active ingredients: fludioxonil, fluxapyroxad, ipconazole, PCNB, penflufen, prothioconazole, pyraclostrobin, or sedexane. Data is from the combined studies of members of the NCERA-137 Soybean Pathologists from the Land Grant Colleges in the soybean producing states.5. The most important advice is to rotate fields. In addition to the ability to survive or contaminate seed, all of these pathogens have survival structures in the soil or on soybean residue. To get off on the right foot for 2018, plant the fields that have problems, lower yields, plants with symptoms of early dying from a plethora of problems, or moldy seed to corn preferably. Or if you must plant soybeans, work with your seed dealer to get the best disease resistance package in that field. We can solve all of these problems by planting varieties with better disease resistance packages targeted for our areas.
