Good thing that our shots went in, and at 42-percent, it’s high. But I guess they’re improving a lot and let’s give the credit to our guys. This is because of their work in practice. They practice hard and they do extra effort  to do shooting every day,” said coach Egay Macaraya.Jayson David led San Sebastian with 17 points, powered by three treys, on top of five rebounds, three assists, four steals, and a block.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogAllyn Bulanadi also got 16 markers off his 3-of-7 shooting from rainbow country, to go with four assists and three boards, while Michael Calisaan got 13 points and seven rebounds for the Golden Stags.It was still a close game early in the third period with San Sebastian holding a 49-41 lead when it turned on the jets and staged the deciding 17-0 tear, capped off by a Bulanadi trey for 66-41 lead en route to the blowout.

Urgent Need to Help Our Fishermen and Women

Urgent Need to Help Our Fishermen and Women

first_imgFrom time immemorial fishermen and women in Liberia have been forced to suffer a major disadvantage in the handling of one of the most perishable commodities, fish.They have risked their lives in the waters, most especially the often rough Atlantic Ocean, looking for fish; and when they are able to bring their catches to shore on the beaches of Liberia’s 350-mile coastline, they are able to sell some of the fish.  The rest, for which they often find no buyers, they have to smoke or dry on the beaches or in town.  In the process, they lose a lot, some from falling to the ground to be eaten by dogs and other animals; and others so badly  charred, and impossible to sell.The wood the fishermen and women use to conserve their unsold fish is not ordinary wood, but a special kind of red wood, which expensive because it is not readily found.Today, at long last, there is hope—a lot of it.  The West Africa Fisheries Project (WARFP), with financial assistance from the World Bank, is engaged in building landing facilities throughout West Africa that have dramatically eased the plight of our fishermen and women.The first place Liberians saw such a facility was in The Gambia, where many of them settled during the war.  There WARFP built several landing facilities along the country’s many beaches. But it was not just landing facilities, which made it easy the fishermen and women to land their boats and canoes smoothly.  Far more than these, the WARFP built a multipurpose building to provide for a cold storage to preserve the fish, repair of canoes and nets and training in marketing, preservation and other business strategies.These provide serious empowerment to the fishermen and women to better manage their business, thereby making more profit.  The cold storage enables them to better handle their unsold fish, which can be kept in storage for as long as a year.  So the fishermen and women are not forced to resort to drying their fish.The building provides a clean and comfortable space for selling the fish immediately after the boats or canoes dock.One such facility is now under construction in Liberia, our first.  Last month, government, WARFP and World Bank officials found their way to Robertsport, Grand Cape Mount County, for the groundbreaking of this facility, estimated to cost US$1.7 million.  Most people who attended the ceremony were surprised that Liberia’s Agriculture Minister, Madam Florence Chenoweth, did not attend the ceremony, even though it took place in their own town, Robertsport.  She instead sent her Deputy for Technical Services, Sizi Subah.The project is expected to complete within a year.Other such facilities for Liberia are in the pipeline.  The next to be built is scheduled for Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, and should have been started by now.  But the problem has been finding the land on which to build it.  The first plot that was found was legally contested by a prominent Grand Bassa family, which said the land was theirs and they not permit such a project to come there.  Both the people and the government were very disappointed.  Now, the fishermen and women in Grand Bassa are appealing to the government to find another piece of land on which to build the fish landing facility.  Our Fisheries Correspondent Edwin Fayia, who visited Buchanan last week observed a sense of desperation on the faces of the fishermen and women.  It was through him that they channeled their SOS call to government to do something as soon as possible to facilitate the construction of this much needed landing facility.We pray that the President, Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, will put pressure on the relevant GOL officials to find the land for this project, money for which is immediately available.  And who are these officials?  The City Mayor of Buchanan, the Superintendent of Grand Bassa, the Ministers of  Agriculture and Lands and Mines and the Chairman of the Land Commission.But the government official who holds the key to it all is  Agriculture Minister Chenoweth because the project is in her sector.  We hope that she will do soonest what she has to do to relieve our fishermen and women of the plight that has plagued them for more than a century.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

MYS Lifts Ceiling on Intra-Governmental Tourney

MYS Lifts Ceiling on Intra-Governmental Tourney

first_imgThe Ministry of Youth and Sports has lifted restrictions on participation of teams in the 2016 Intra-Governmental Tournament but still excluded volleyball.The MYS has written 34 governmental institutions for the tournament to involve football and kickball.It may be recalled that in the 2015 Intra-Governmental Tournament, the MYS radically reduced participating teams from 22 to eight in each discipline and dropped volleyball.MYS said the eight public institutions which reached the quarterfinals in the 2014 Intra-Governmental Tournament in the football and kickball editions were automatically qualified to participate in the 2015 Special Intra-Governmental Tournament in celebration of the country’s victory over the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).Deputy Sports Minister Henry B. Yonton, Jr. said in an exclusive interview yesterday via mobile phone that registration for the 2016 tournament runs from Tuesday – Friday, March 1 – 11.He said the tourney will kick-off Wednesday, March 23, and will be the first of its kind to be played on three fields, including the Willis Knuckles Sports Stadium (formerly Alpha Field), the BYC’s Blue Field and the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS).Minister Yonton stated that the lack of facilities caused the exclusion of volleyball, while football and kickball are expected to be played at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS).The multi-purpose SKD Sports Complex where most international games and national games are played is currently under renovation by the People’s Republic of China. The Intra-Governmental League is a tournament that brings together all line ministries, agencies, public corporations and other branches of government together through various sporting disciplines.Deputy Sports Minister Yonton said the low participation of governmental institutions in this year’s tournament is mainly owing to budget cut as well as the lack of sports facilities in the country.“Each institution will pay the amount of US$500 as registration fees,” he said.He said the MYS will seek sponsorship for the three-day tournament and has urged business institutions, like the Liberia Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Club Breweries, GSM and mineral water companies to take advantage to advertise their products.In the 2015 Intra-Governmental Tourney, LBS lifted the football trophy.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Pres. Weah to ‘Directly Get Involved in… Agriculture Development’

Pres. Weah to ‘Directly Get Involved in… Agriculture Development’

first_imgPresident George M. Weah delivers his second Annual Address to the Joint session of the Legislature on January 28, 2019. (Photo: Leroy M. Sonpon, III)–Promises to address downward trendPresident George Weah says despite endless resources being poured into agriculture by the government and international partners, the returns of these interventions toward the country are almost negligible.The President’s comment was contained in his second annual message delivered to a joint session of the 54th Legislature on Monday, January 28, 2019 at the Capitol in Monrovia. He promised to address the downward trend of the agricultural sector in order to reduce poverty in the lives of farmers and boost the country’s economy.“Just as I am doing with the roads, I will directly get involved in the programs and practical implementation of agriculture development,” he added.According to the President, because the sector accounts for more than 70 percent of household earnings, it is important to note that the Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD) can only be sustainably achieved through agriculture.He said his government will craft new practical and realistic agriculture policies to promote the sector.“We will incentivize the sector by providing access to credit, reducing tariffs on agricultural implements, and provide small machines, modern seeds and fertilizers,” the President said.Weah also assures his government’s commitment toward the improvement of Liberian businesses.“As I said before, and continue to say, the country is open for business. Under this administration, the private sector will be prioritized. With the passage of the new Special Economic Zone Law, we will create one-stop shop business zones for the private sector as part of our strategies to begin value addition, especially for light manufacturing and processing,” he said.“While we try to roll out these new business opportunities, we will get directly involved in improving the business climate,” he said.President Weah then used the occasion to thank foreign businesses with branches in the country, adding, “I would like to take this time to thank all the foreign businesses operating in the country. In spite of various constraints, they continue to positively contribute to the economy in terms of revenue generations and job creations.”Meanwhile, a Liberian farmer who preferred anonymity recalled that the  agriculture sector has remained underfunded by successive governments over the years, thereby causing low agricultural productivity.“The government continues to provide limited funding to the sector. We are even disappointed of the President’s speech, because there is no detailed explanation on how he intends to improve agriculture. How can agriculture be improved when the government is still allotting limited money in the national budget?” he said.He said that much of the funding for agriculture has come from external sources.“It is unfortunate to hear from the President that funding from the international partners is negligible. Today, many of us in the sector are successful due to donors’ assistance,” the source said.He said the challenges in the sector are still numerous, and will require a serious commitment from the government for farmers to reduce poverty and make the country food secure.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Championship: Danny Graham nets first Blackburn goal, Hull increase their lead

first_imgBlackburn 3-0 FulhamDanny Graham marked his home debut with a late goal to cap off Blackburn’s comprehensive 3-0 victory over Fulham which ended a two-month winless run in the Sky Bet Championship.There seemed to be little doubt the nine-match run without a win would be ended once man of the match Ben Marshall converted his fourth spot-kick of the season in the 15th minute.The home faithful were able to relax when Shane Duffy headed his first Ewood Park goal just after the hour and another header, this time from Graham, rounded off a fine evening for the hosts.Fulham, on the other hand, have now only one win in their last 10 away games and have not won in nine at Ewood.Hull 0-0 BrightonHull stretched their lead at the top of the Sky Bet Championship to two points with a 0-0 draw with Brighton in a game which was bereft of chances at the KC Stadium.Sam Clucas had their best effort when his late shot was tipped on to the bar by Brighton goalkeeper David Stockdale.Jamie Murphy had Brighton’s best chance with a rising shot in the opening period as the promotion challengers had to settle for a point.

Ndejje, Kigezi fire blanks at Arena of Visions

first_img Tags: fufa big leagueKigezi Home Boysndejje universityViali Binomugisha Kigezi remain fourth in the Rwenzori Group. (PHOTO/File)BOMBO – Ndejje University and Kigezi Homeboyz played out a goalless draw on Thursday at the Arena of Vision in the StarTimes FUFA Big League.It was the away side that looked better in a Cagey encounter, but Vialli Bainomugisha and his boys will have to thank the crossbar for ensuring the game ended goalless.Ndejje were granted the opportunity to snatch victory in the 89th minute through a freekick, but the crossbar came to Kigezi’s rescue after goalkeeper Bruno Ochom who entered the referee’s book for time wasting and his defense were neatly beaten.The hosts thought they’d gotten a penalty after Kigezi’s Ronald Buwembo fouled in the box but the referee blew for an earlier offence just outside the box hence the above free kick.In open play, the Lions looked blunt upfront despite being the top scorers in Rwenzori group.The result means both sides stay put- Ndejje second and Kigezi fourth- in the group.Rwenzori group table toppers UPDF maintained their stay atop with a 2-2 draw against Kitara.The other games played on Thursday -Katwe United FC 0-1 Kiboga Young FC-Myda FC 2-0 Paidha Black Angels-Bukedea Town Council FC 3-2 Saviour’s FC-Doves All Stars FC 1-0 Light SS FC-Nyamityobora FC 2-1 Water FC-Dove FC 1-1 Kansas Plascon FC-Kitara FC 2-2 UPDF FCComments last_img read more
