US-Citizen Donates Heart’s Checking Machine to Catholic Hospital

first_imgA heart diagnosis machine and its accessories worth thousands of United States Dollars were last Saturday donated to the St. Joseph Catholic Hospital by an American citizen, Nancy Word.The equipment is used to monitor the heart after surgeries such as angioplasty, bypass, or other procedures affecting the heart.  It also monitors the effects of medication as well as, after a heart attack, stroke, or othercardiac ailments.The executive director of the Gbowee Peace Foundation, Piso Saydee Tarr, who made the presentation on behalf of Madam Word, said the donation was meant to alleviate the plight of patients suffering from heart problems.  Word said in her communication that “The total package includes a laptop, a printer and a rolling cart for the equipment.”The Gbowee Peace Foundation director revealed that Madam Word decided to donate the diagnostic machine in her effort to directly touch the lives of Liberian citizens, particularly in the health sector.  She stressed that “the donation would help doctors and nurses working in the hospital’s diagnostic section to treat patients with critical heart issues.”She further quoted Word’s communication as saying, “My trip to Liberia changed my life and I felt the notion that I wanted to do something in this country.”She added, “I saw and felt the compassion and love that was delivered at the hospital with so little equipment to use. It was when I asked the doctor there what she needed and she told me that they needed an EKG machine.  That request was etched on my brain.”“So, a year later, with help from Telemed Situations, a company in California, USA, and a team of students at the Texas University, along with my daughter and son-law, they helped to configure the laptop with a solid hard drive to make it last longer. They also installed a long lasting battery.”Madam Word said that she was dedicating the equipment to Madam Leymah Gbowee whom she described as “a force of nature from whom she (Madam Word) has learned a lot, through her every endeavor,  including Leyma’s peace initiatives.”Madam Tarr thanked the management and staff of the hospital for working so hard in the area of providing medicare to the people of Liberia.Receiving the equipment, the executive director of the hospital, Patrick Nshairndze, thanked Madam Word for the donation which, he said, would be used to save many lives in the country.According to him, “We have been suffering from the lack of an EKG machine, because the only one we had at the hospital got damaged two months.”He said the donation would “boost our capacity to help patients in severe need of heart diagnosis. He gave assurance that the hospital would use the machine to the benefit of the general public. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Nimba Making Concrete Culverts to Replace Log Bridges

first_imgNimba County is attempting to replace all log bridges on feeder roads in the county with concrete culverts before President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s tenure comes to an end.Development Superintendent David Dorr Cooper made the pronouncement in a Daily Observer interview at the workshop where the culverts are being produced.“It is regrettable that since the county gained its status in 1964, the past county administrations have not been able to replace log bridges with concrete culverts,” he lamented.He said log bridges which logging companies built years back have all been damaged impeding free movement of farmers and travelers getting to the markets as well as reaching their other destinations on time.He said “What you are seeing here is just part of our vision and plan to change the face of the county from what it has been since 1964.”Mr. Cooper said, the county authorities have decided to change the situation by laying concrete culverts on all roads connecting towns and villages. “We just established this workshop to produce as many culverts as possible, and these culverts are of various sizes and well fabricated. We want all of our bridges leading to six cities, towns and villages to have concrete culverts,” he added.The county leadership will try to manage the residents’ expectations by strategically implementing the project so that every segment will be able to benefit, Supt. Cooper indicated.For that reason, the county has completed opening of alleys and building new streets in Karnplay and Bahn, cities, and is about to implement similar projects in Saclepea and Ganta.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Exclusive – Podolski loan switch suits both parties, claims former Arsenal star

first_imgJohn Hartson believes Lukas Podolski’s loan move away from Arsenal suits both parties.The Gunners forward has agreed to spend the rest of the season at Inter Milan, after finding his first-team opportunities limited at the Emirates.And ex-Highbury favourite Hartson claims Arsene Wenger’s side can cope without the German World Cup winner.“It’s an area where Arsenal are OK,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. “Olivier Giroud is coming back, Theo Walcott looked threatening against Hull, and they have also got Danny Welbeck.“Lukas Podolski is a World Cup winner. He is very experienced and he’s at an age where he just wants to play.“With these big squads you have to rotate and players aren’t going to play every week.“Inter Milan have offered him the possibility to play every week – it’s a credit to him that he wants to go and play.“He could sit on his backside, play every two or three weeks and pick up big wages, but he’s still got a bit of fight in him.“Also, if he’s not happy, he might start moaning to the other players and becoming a bad influence.”last_img read more

Harps U17s earn deserved draw with St Pats

first_imgA Ryan Finn goal in the second minute of injury time secured the Finn Harps U17s a 3-3 draw against league leaders St. Patrick’s Athletic in Killygordon today. The point will be a big boost as Harps bid to stay in contention to qualify from the Northern Section for the knockout stages of the national competition.Ryan Cunningham gave the hosts the lead in the 11th minute with a fine left-foot strike after being setup by Corey-Lee Brogan. The visitors dominated the possession stakes for much of the first half and equalized seven minutes before the break when Ricky Farrell turned the ball past Jamie Bell after a clever interchange of passes. The league leaders went 2-1 up on 50 minutes when John Martin capitalized on a defensive error to hook the ball over Bell. The hosts got back on level terms in the 72nd minute when Shane Blaney’s spectacular angled free-kick from the edge of the penalty flew into the top corner.Pat’s pushed forward again in search of a lead goal and it came with seven minutes of normal time remaining when Martin got his second by converting a penalty.It looked like another equalizer wouldn’t materialize against a side that has only lost once this season. But, in the second minute of injury time Finn reacted quickly to intercept a sloppy pass midway inside the Pat’s half and the midfielder carried the ball forward before coolly placing the ball in the corner of the net with the outside of his right boot.Declan Boyle’s side will now aim to kick-on from here by winning in Longford next weekend.Finn Harps – Jamie Bell, Michael Gallagher, Darragh Ellison, Conor Gavigan, Shane Blaney; Corey-Lee Brogan, Ryan Finn, Zac Brolly, Ryan Cunningham; Liam Walsh, James Carolan.

Vikings’ first win was special for QB Benjamin

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Mountain View trailed 20-17 late in the fourth quarter before Benjamin led his team on a long drive that he capped with a 23-yard touchdown pass to John Polanco. The Vikings recovered a fumble with two minutes remaining to post a 24-20 victory. The win was also special for Wilson, who got his first victory as Vikings’ head coach. “It’s about time,” Wilson said. “We finally get to celebrate. It’s a big weight off the shoulders. It’s especially big because it was homecoming and El Monte is a rival. It was the first homecoming game we’ve won in about 10 years.” It truly was good timing all around for the Vikings since the game was the Mission Valley League opener and the Vikings are currently sharing the top of the standings with Rosemead and South El Monte. “The biggest thing is that it lets us focus on something positive,” Wilson said. “Now that we’ve started league, we have that sense of urgency. We keep stressing to the kids that as long as we can play with that sense of urgency on Friday nights, we at least give ourselves a chance.” San Dimas football coach Bill Zernickow also got his first win of the season last Friday. Given the Saints’ 0-5 start, it’s easily forgotten that they are the defending Valle Vista League champions. San Dimas took a big step toward defending its title with a 35-34 decision over Northview. It was Zernickow’s first win for his new school and it came against his former employer. “It’s not about revenge or anything like that,” Zernickow said. “It was just a win, it wasn’t the fact it came against Northview. For me, it was just about being happy for our own kids.” The win was especially big for San Dimas because Northview was considered one of the league’s top contenders this season. But Zernickow scoffed the notion of San Dimas being on the inside track for making the postseason. “I can’t say we’re on the inside track,” he said. “Covina is a great football team and Pomona has a great quarterback.” There has been notable improvement for the Saints during the past two weeks. San Dimas shook off four consecutive blowout losses to start the season with a close, one-point loss against rival Bonita that was followed by Friday’s win over Northview. “We’ve kept to the game plan,” Zernickow said. “I remember saying in the summer that it was going to take a while to get used to our style. We’re just becoming a better team every week. That’s how you want it to go, and hopefully, you’re playing your best football by the end of the year.” Aram Tolegian can be reached at (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2233, or by e-mail at aram.tolegian@sgvn.com. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Mountain View High School football team’s first win of the season couldn’t have come at a better time not only for the winless Vikings but also for quarterback Leander Benjamin. Last Friday’s game against El Monte was the first time Benjamin’s father, who lives on the East Coast, got to watch his son play. Benjamin had not seen his father in nine years. center_img “One thing that really inspired him was that his father was in the stands watching him play for the first time,” Vikings coach James Wilson said. “They stay in contact, but they hadn’t seen each other in a long time.” Benjamin didn’t disappoint. The junior was 8 of 16 for 197 yards and three touchdowns. Benjamin also played his first game at middle linebacker and recorded eight tackles. last_img read more

Jackson fearful Donegal could suffer repeat of ‘flood devastation’

first_imgPOLITICS: Tim Jackson has called on Donegal TDs and Councillors to explain to the public what measures have been taken to avoid a repeat of last year’s flooding of large swathes of the county. Substantial damage was done to houses, businesses and farms when heavy rains caused numerous rivers to burst their banks over a two month period last year.Jackson, an Independent candidate in the last General Election, fears the county could see a repeat of the damage caused. The popular community activist told Donegal Daily, “Everyone talked about flood relief measures that needed to be carried out, but I think it’s crucial that we would now be given an account of the work done in that regard by our politicians and the Office of Public Works since those floods, so that we know where we stand as a county.“It’s quite possible we’ll see similar rainfalls this winter.“The last thing Donegal needs is a repeat of the devastation caused by the flooding, so I would encourage the public to seek answers to this question of what exactly has been done, and what remains to be done.”Jackson fearful Donegal could suffer repeat of ‘flood devastation’ was last modified: October 1st, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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
