Lamardo had trouble breathing because of the gas.Earlier, CONMEBOL said in a statement that its doctors noted Boca players “suffered superficial skin injuries” and two “said they had eye injuries, which could not be confirmed.”“We believe that under the medical point of view there is no reason to suspend the match,” the doctors of the South American soccer body said.Dominguez disagreed.“This is football, not war.

Tourism: Liberia’s Untapped Billions

first_imgWongan Waterfall, Kokoyah, Bong County, central LiberiaBy Saytarcon W. TipaysonThere are three strategic sectors that if our current government can invest heavily in with immediate effect we can become a middle-income country within the next two decades. Those key sectors are Education, Agriculture, and Tourism.  For my interest, I am going to focus on the benefits that Liberia stands to reap if the right investments and policies are implemented in the tourism sector. I will leave the Educational & Agricultural sectors with the experts to deal with them.Firstly, before I elaborate on what Liberia stands to benefit if we have a vibrant tourism sector, we need to briefly get a clear understanding of what tourism is, what impact it has on global trade, Liberia’s tourism potential, and how tourism has lifted poor countries out of poverty.Tourism can be defined causally as the travel for leisure or business. It is one of the biggest industry in the world and the sector generated 1.8 trillion in the year 2017 and out of this amount, Africa generated 20-billions. The tourism sector has employed more than 70 million people worldwide and it is a sector that experts at the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) predicted to continuously grow.Liberia possesses a rich culture, history, great biodiversity in fauna and flora, the most beautiful waterfall and lake in the tropics. More to that, we have 350 miles of uninterrupted coastline, some of the most endemic species in the world, and having one of the best surfing spot in the world. The tourism sector with its huge potential can generate billions in revenue for the government and at the same time create thousands of jobs for Liberians both in the private and the public sectors. Tourism is a powerful tool that has been used by very poor and underdeveloped countries to advance their own development. For an example; Cape Verde was able to use tourism as a development tool to lift itself from a poor and least developed country to a developing country and Liberia can take lessons from them to develop.It is not late to start now because there is a workable blueprint for the tourism sector, which was drafted and sent to the 53rd Legislature for passage into law two years ago under the Presidency of Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and the leadership of Hon. L. Eugene Nagbe as Minister of Information Culture & Tourism.  The name of this document is named and styled “Liberian National Export Strategy on Tourism 2016-2020”. Some of the key drafters of the Liberian National Export Strategy on Tourism 2016-2020 are still around and some are still holding strategic positions in the current government and the private sector. With specific e being placed on those could advise the government on the importance of implementing this policy to the letter.Tourism places money directly into communities that are directly affected by tourist’s visits. With a clear understanding of what tourism is, we will now focus on five key benefits that Liberia stands to benefit if we invest in the tourism sector.Employment We are currently experiencing serious economic crisis and huge unemployment rate in the country. The pains, hardships, and embarrassments of unemployment are being felt more by the youths of Liberia. A vibrant tourism sector will help employ thousands of youths and eliminates this national crisis. Those that work directly in the sector like, hotels, restaurants, resorts, guest houses, tour guides, aviation, and car rental companies will employ more people due to the influx of tourists and it will also indirectly affect other sectors like agriculture, the arts sector, and retailing businesses positively.Boost to the local economy When tourists visits a country they put money directly into the local economy by their spending. Tourists purchase food, clothing, paid hotels bills, buy tourist visa, do hairdressing, use local GSM companies, and use local transportations services which in term boost the economy. The money that is spent by tourists, the revenue generated by both individuals and businesses from tourists is injected directly into the local economy. So more money is earned locally from tourism and those monies are spent in the local economy and that helps to eradicate poverty. The revenues generated from tourism are usually referred to as having a multiplier effect because a huge percentage of every tourist dollar earned is reintroduced back into the economy over and over again. This means, with the right programs that will attract tourists to Liberia means they will be coming with their tourist money and those monies will have a direct economic benefit for all our citizens.Diversification of the Liberian economyIt is a fact that our government over the years has been overly dependent on the mining sector. When the prices of those minerals plummet on the world market we experience constant budget shortfalls and the economy starts to experience negative growth. We could limit or get rid of our over-reliant on the extractive sector by investing more in tourism. A vibrant tourism sector with a constant inflow of hard foreign currency could serve as a cushion to absolve the shock that our government usually experience in her revenue generation when the prices of our major export commodities falls on the world market.Infrastructure developmentAs more tourists visit a country and in order to maintain their inflow the government and private businesses will have to build better facilities around tourist sites, build new airports to receive tourists, new roads to tourist sites and better hotels to accommodate them. Projects such as hospitals, schools, public libraries, and museums can be built and operated from the extra cash generated from the sector.Save the environmentEco-tourism has the ability to maintained Liberia status as a biodiversity hotspot, safe our forest from deforestation and at the same time generate huge revenue from tourists, researchers, and academicians that are interested in the ecosystem of Liberia and also for those that love nature. Taking into consideration that 42% of the remaining upper guinea rainforest in West Africa lies within our borders gives us a competitive advantage to become a major player in the eco-tourism market globally.With a clear understanding of what we stand to benefit as a nation if we invest in tourism, the following recommendations need to be implemented immediately if we are to become a tourist destination and also create another source of revenue for the government and private businesses.Separate the Department of Culture and Tourism from the Ministry of InformationImplement the Liberian National Export Strategy on Tourism 2016-2020 to the fullestSend more students abroad to study travel and tourismCreate programs that will highlight our cultureSpend money on improving infrastructures or building modern facilities around tourist sitesInvest heavily in marketing Liberia as a tourist destination in specific markets like the US, Europe, and the ECOWAS regionMaintain constant peace and security within our borders and finallyProvide access to finance for local entrepreneurs in the tourism sectorsIf these recommendations are listened to and implemented by our leaders, we can rest assured that our beloved country will be on the right path to total development and the pro-poor agenda of this government will be met to the fullest.About the Author: Saytarcon W. Tipayson is a Sales & Marketing Specialist by profession.

first_imgOnce again this year, June resulted in the best monthly sale of natural gas and petroluem rights to date with just under $22 million in bonus bids. However, in June 2010, the bonus bid was $404 million, which pushed the total for the first half of the 2010 calendar year to more than $609 million.- Advertisement -That means last year’s six month total was about nine times more than this year’s, which is only about $67 million.Wednesday’s June sale resulted in the purchase of 24 of the 26 parcels offered and the per hectare price paid was $968 dollars.At $67 million, the province is now on pace for a calendar year total in bonus bids of $134 million.That would be the lowest total this decade and the fifth lowest in the past two decades.Advertisementlast_img

Storm Eleanor leaves Inishowen residents ‘living in fear’ of flood repeat

first_imgResidents across Inishowen are living in fear tonight after the peninsula was struck by Storm Eleanor.Emergency services are dealing with flooding incidents in Carndonagh and Burnfoot, which are two of the worst hit areas.At least one house in Burnfoot was flooded tonight and homes in areas that were devastated by flash flooding in August were again left at risk. (Picture above of the August flooding in Burnfoot) In Carndonagh, the Tul na Rí was evacuated this evening and roads around the Carn area are said to be badly flooded in places. Residents have been advised that sandbags are available from the old Co-Op yard at Tul na Rí.This comes less than five months after the peninsula was torn apart by flooding that wrecked havoc and left a trail of destruction behind it.There are calls for urgent action to be taken in relation to installing flood defences.“Again there has been fear and apprehension across Inishowen with regard to flooding,” the Mayor of the Inishowen Municipal District, Sinn Féin Councillor Jack Murray, told Donegal Daily. “While thankfully it wasn’t at the same level as the devastating August floods, that is still little consolation to anyone affected this time.“This again highlights the need to build flood defences in Burnfoot, Buncrana and  elsewhere in order to ensure the protection of homes. It is wholly unacceptable that this work has not been done yet.“Likewise, rivers across Inishowen need to be dredged as a matter of priority. The promises made by government ministers in the aftermath of the August floods have to be realised – and realised quickly.”There is a lot of surface water across roads in Donegal, while debris is strewn across many roads with motorists urged to drive with extreme care and to avoid unnecessary journeys.Meanwhile, residents in Killybegs are being warned that there is a ‘high probability’ of flooding at around 6am. With the tides high at that time and heavy rainfall expected to continue through the night, the natives have been advised to take necessary precautions.Many businesses and home owners have already put down sandbags in an attempt to keep it at bay.Killybegs-based county councillor Niamh Kennedy has advised that residents on Bridge Street and the shore front should take particular caution.Storm Eleanor leaves Inishowen residents ‘living in fear’ of flood repeat was last modified: January 3rd, 2018 by Chris McNultyShare 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)Tags:buncranaBurnfootCarndonaghInishowenInishowen FloodingJack MurrayMet EireannSinn Feinstorm eleanorlast_img read more

ESB Networks warning to farmers transporting hay and straw

first_imgESB Networks has issued a public safety warning to the Donegal farming community about transporting high loads of hay and straw which may come in contact with overhead electricity wires.Coming in contact with overhead electricity wires is extremely dangerous and can be fatal.Electricity wires are erected at best international heights that permit the transit of loads safely. However serious problems arise when loads are too high and interfere with live overhead electricity wires.ESB Networks Safety Manager Arthur Byrne says: “At this busy time for farmers, hay and straw is being saved and transported on roads around the country. ESB Networks is concerned about a number of incidents where tractors pulling high loads of hay and straw, have come in contact with the overhead electricity network.“In one case, where a high load pulled down live electricity wires, both the tractor and load caught fire. Thankfully the driver escaped injury, but it serves as a timely warning to the farming community on these hazards.”When loading hay and straw onto a tractor or lorry, our advice is to always ensure that the load is low enough to allow for safe transit, and avoid putting the public at risk. When planning the route with a high load, identify where electricity wires cross the road . Where there is doubt, establish if there is adequate clearance and, if necessary contact ESB Networks. NEVER, under any circumstances touch an electricity wire or anything the wire may be in contact with, including the inside or outside of a tractor/lorry/trailer etc. Please contact ESB Networks immediately on 1850 372 999.Please read carefully the “Farm Safely with Electricity” Booklet which can be downloaded from our website www.esbnetworks.ie. Also the “Guidelines for safe working near overhead lines in agriculture” and the “Code of Practice for Avoiding danger from overhead electricity lines”. These can be downloaded from the HSA (www.hsa/ie ) and ESB Networks websites (www.esbnetworks.ie)ESB Networks warning to farmers transporting hay and straw was last modified: August 3rd, 2018 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) Tags:ESBfarmersoverhead wireslast_img read more
