GoL, UNFPA Sign 2021 Census Document

first_imgGiven the cost of the 2021 Census, the government has adopted a unique financial management system, whereby all funds are lodged in a “Census Basket Fund” at a local bank and managed by UNFPA.The Government of Liberia (GoL), through the Liberia Institute of Statistics and Geo-Information Services (LISGIS) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), on Tuesday, October 8, 2019, officially signed a document for the 2021 National Population and Housing Census (NPHC) Project.LISGIS Director Francis Fonanyeneh Wreh said that the document for the Project will be the first census in the country to use digital technology at all phases of preparation, geographic planning, census-taking, data management, processing as well as tabulation, publication, archiving and dissemination.According to him, the pending census, which costs US$18.9 million, has experienced some significant delays due to “untimely and inadequate funding.”“This is one major reason why the international ten-year periodicity of census-taking, as enshrined in the United Nations principles and Recommendations, was slightly exceeded; notwithstanding, we are still operating within the 2020 Round of Population and Housing Censuses (2015-2024),” he said.“LISGIS, in collaboration with and support from UNFPA, has developed the Census Project document, which will serve as a source for support and resource mobilization for all processes of the 2021 Census undertaking.”He said that the estimated cost of the 2021 exercise is US$18.9 million, and has, therefore, appealed to the country’s development partners to support the project by making available tools for development policy-making, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of development programming.UNFPA Resident Representative, Dr. Bannet Ndyanabangi, described yesterday’s signing ceremony as a defining moment that signals the official start of the census program.UNFPA, as part of the UN country team in Liberia, has realigned its development assistance with the government’s development plan in a period of peace and security consolidation, as well as strengthening democratic governance towards attaining sustainable development.Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Samuel Tweah, said that the government budgeted US$6 million for the census process, but currently has US$3 million, adding that the government is working to get the balance money.Tweah described the census exercise as “critical for national development, and therefore the government needs to empower LISGIS to have an updated data in the interest of the country.”He added: “The government is grateful to achieve such a milestone, by signing the project, though it is belated; it is good because it has to deliver the ultimate census, which will be the best census in the history of Liberia since it is a digital census.”Given the cost of the 2021 Census, the government has adopted a unique financial management system, whereby all funds are lodged in a “Census Basket Fund” at a local bank and managed by UNFPA.The Liberian government and the Embassy of Sweden have, meanwhile, made initial contributions, while there is a commitment from the Irish Embassy, the World Bank, UNDP, UN Women and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

BC Hockey announces full face masks mandatory for Junior B players next year

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – BC Hockey announced Tuesday that full face protection will be required for all Junior B players starting next season.This includes the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, Pacific Junior Hockey League and the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League as well as the Fort St. John Huskies and Dawson Creek Canucks.“We have been talking about it for a year and a half,” said BC Hockey Chief Executive Officer, Barry Petrachenko. It felt like the right time as parents, players and hockey are ready for it.” He added, “I have been in touch with my colleague at Alberta Hockey as they are in the same boat, but at this time they have yet to make the same steps that we made today. It’s a process that we will continue to work at to ensure the best outcome for our players in Junior B hockey in B.C.”- Advertisement -In terms of dental or eye coverage for players, Junior B teams will see a 71 percent reduction in major medical and dental premiums under the Hockey Canada Insurance Program down from $45 dollars to $10 per year with the move to full face protection.It comes down to insurance,” added General Manager Jeremy Clothier. “Hockey governing bodies pays out huge dollars for insurance for teeth, eyes, etc every year. This should lower that.”Currently, around five percent of Junior A players competing in the BC Hockey League wear full face protection.Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL MANAGER Jim McGuinness has defended referees over their inconsistency after meeting one of them recently.McGuinness wanted to know why Fermanagh man Martin Higgins had been so “overly sensitive” during the recent league game between Donegal and Laois; the same fixture as this Sunday as the Division Two final at Croke Park. Higgins awarded 28 frees in the first half.“I left the conversation (with Higgins) feeling sorry for the referees,” said McGuinness in today’s Irish Times. “They are under phenomenal pressure. We had the same referee the day we played Meath and my understanding is he got a very, very hard assessment by the assessor. He tried to rectify that the following day and I understand he got a very hard assessment again since that.“There are 26 or 28 referees in a panel and there are 16 of them that will be refereeing in the championship so there are at least 10 who are not going to make the panel so that is pressure first of all.“I was also informed there is a panel of assessors and not all the assessors get to assess in the championship so they have to pick every single technicality out for their points to be high so you are in a position where referees and assessors are fighting for stripes.”McGuinness told the newspaper that managers needed guidance. “I think the GAA should come out and be more transparent with the referees and the assessors. I would say it is not the referees’ fault. They are under phenomenal pressure to make the cut for the All-Ireland series.“In my estimation, the referee is the talking point 70 per cent of the time coming out of the game now because of fussy fouls, wild technical fouls, one foot here, one foot there. It drives supporters, managers and players crazy and there is nothing majorly wrong with the game only it has become really, really technical now which is damaging to the fluency of the game.”McGuinness said GAA was copying English soccer – and this needed to stop.“We have got a cultural identity in this country and these are our indigenous games. We don’t need yellow cards. If you put your foot over the line in a game of soccer the last couple of years they are pulling it up. All of a sudden now in Ireland it is the same thing. We had a fella booked for diving, our full back who if you knew him you would know he wouldn’t do that. That is your full back in the first 10 minutes so there are a lot of things going on that are not reflective of our indigenous sport.”McGuinness confirmed intercounty managers, unlike their rugby counterparts, are not permitted to speak with referees before a game to ascertain what the referee will not tolerate. “There is a wee bit of an ‘us against them’ situation but let’s try and get it right by working together. It’s about respect,” he tells the Irish Times.NATIONAL LEAGUE DIVISION 2 FINAL: McGUINNESS DEFENDS REFEREES was last modified: April 21st, 2011 by gregShare 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

Evacuees slow to move into FEMA trailer town

first_imgBAKER, La. – What was to be Louisiana’s first great stride in providing temporary housing for Hurricane Katrina victims turned out to be more of a stutter step Thursday, with only about 50 new residents arriving to fill a trailer community built for upward of 2,000. Reporters were told Thursday morning that busloads of evacuees from area shelters would be arriving throughout the day. But evacuees only trickled in, most in their own cars. Others stepped off large buses in small groups – one huge tour bus roared up to a registration tent with only three people aboard. Federal Emergency Management Agency officials and contractors on site would not give a reason for the latest delay in populating the trailer community. That it took more than five weeks after Katrina struck to get the site ready was blamed officially on a second storm, Hurricane Rita, and unofficially on bureaucratic disorganization and trouble getting the park’s tap water certified as safe to drink. New resident Yolanda Vaughn said there were communication problems: She was never officially told the trailer she and her husband, Dwain, would share was ready Thursday. A fellow resident at a nearby Red Cross-run evacuation shelter in Baker alerted them that she had seen their name on a list. “It’s just miscommunication,” Yolanda Vaughn said, happy to be in their small, but private, home instead of a shelter. “It’s not anybody’s fault.” The park – the first major hurricane trailer town in the New Orleans area – is expected to hold between three and four people per trailer, which could put the population at more than 2,000. Among the first shown her new home was Izella Crayton and her two young children, forced out of their home in a New Orleans suburb by Katrina’s wind and rain. FEMA is overseeing and funding the park. Staffers had trouble unlocking the door of Crayton’s two-bedroom trailer, but when it opened and she stepped in, she was bowled over. “Oh, look how beautiful!” she shouted. A quick tour of the compact living space revealed a three-bed vacation-style trailer, outfitted with such basics as bed sheets by government contractors. Most of the trailers have 200 to 300 square feet of living space, some with pop-out sections. The park is plotted like a town, with still-unnamed gravel streets. There are plans for postal service and bus connections for the 1.5-mile trip into Baker, just north of Baton Rouge, but they have not yet been completed. The typical maximum stay in FEMA housing is 18 months. Crayton said she expects to be there about a year. She hopes to find work similar to what she did in Gretna – housekeeping and cooking for a nursing home. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring!

first_imgAll week long we’ve been hearing about the government’s plans to tackle obesity in Ireland.The “healthy weight for Ireland” policy seeks a targeted reduction in the excess weight of adults and children by promoting healthy eating, exercise and working with the food industry to produce healthier products. The action plan includes a proposal for a tax on sugar-sweetened drinks and also suggests that children should be taught about healthy eating in school. Minister for Health Simon Harris said obesity is a ticking time bomb which has already to some extent exploded as 60% of adults and 1-in-4 children in Ireland are either overweight or obese.He said the action plan which includes a national physical activity plan and proposals for healthy lifestyles in schools is needed to prevent Ireland becoming the fattest country in Europe.At Slimming World we welcome this move but we feel that the government also needs to acknowledge that most of the changes need to come from within the home, so educating parents is also paramount.Part of the problem is that many people think that healthy eating means you have to live on tofu and mung beans, which is absolutely fine if you love tofu and mung beans! Another misconception is that eating healthily costs more, it doesn’t! Every week right across our groups we hear our members talking about how they are able to enjoy all their family favourites while still following our Food Optimising plan and how the whole family is tucking into the same delicious, healthy meals, sometimes without even realising it! We love the stories of how other family members are losing weight and getting more active without even coming to our groups!We are totally committed to helping our members not just to lose weight but to also have the happy, healthy life that they so want, the life that they deserve! And if you do have a young person at home, aged 11 to 15 years who is struggling with their weight you can bring them along to group with you, absolutely free of charge.We’ll help introduce them to a new exciting way of eating and keeping active which will hopefully mean they’ll never need our help later in life.Still not convinced that we’re not going to force feed you tofu and mung beans?Just check out our recipe for a Titanic Tower Burger with chips, with a few easy and healthy swaps it’s easy to create a Happy Meal… Titanic tower burger recipe Ingredients> 230g lean beef mince (5% fat or less)> 1 garlic clove, crushed > ½ onion, grated> 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce> 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley> Salt and freshly ground black pepper> Low calorie cooking sprayFor the filling:> 30g Cheddar cheese> Iceberg lettuce, shredded> 1 tomato, sliced> Red onion, sliced into rings> 1 x 60g wholemeal rollMethod:1. Mix all the burger ingredients (except the low calorie cooking spray) together and shape into 2 round patties. Add a little beaten egg to bind if the mixture is not firm.2. Spray the burgers on both sides with low calorie cooking spray and cook under a hot grill until cooked right through – approximately 5-6 minutes each side.3. Assemble the burger by layering the cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and 2 burgers inside the wholemeal roll. Add gherkins if you fancy it, or enjoy with a splodge of tomato ketchup!Syn free chipsIngredients> 900g medium sized potatoes> Low calorie cooking spray> Crushed sea salt and malt vinegarMethod1. Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C Fan/Gas 9. Peel the potatoes using a potato peeler and remove any blemishes or ‘eyes’. Slice lengthwise into approx 1cm thick rectangular chips.2. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the chips and cook for 4 minutes. Drain and leave aside for 10 minutes to dry.3. Return the chips to the dry saucepan, cover with a lid and shake to ””rough up”” the edges of the chips – this roughness is important to the texture of the chips.4. Spray a metal baking tray with low calorie cooking spray. Transfer the chips to the tray, spray lightly with low calorie cooking spray and bake in the oven for 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden brown on all sides. Drain them on absorbent kitchen paper and serve with salt and vinegar.Tip: For extra flavour sprinkle your chips with garlic salt, herbs and spicesCheck out our Facebook page for even more ideas!Donna xHealthy eating doesn’t have to be boring! was last modified: September 26th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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
