NCCC Receives Financial Donation

first_imgThe Sanniquellie campus of the Nimba County Community College (NCCC) was a scene of enthusiasm on Friday, February 28, when the Minister of National Defense made the significant cash contribution of US$1,000. The donation was given to support a project that students intend to undertake on their main campus across the railroad community in Sanniquellie, the political capital of the county.Minister Brownie J. Samukai, Jr., made the cash contribution when he served as chief launcher for the NCCC’s Student Center Project. Friday’s fund raising program, which is the first of its kind initiated by the NCCC, coincided with the second installation of the institution’s student council government.Other officials in attendance including well respected Nimba County-based businessman, Tomah Seh Floyd; Post and Telecommunication Minister, Dr. Frederick Norkeh; former Education Minister, Dr. Joseph Z.D. Korto; and county development Superintendent, Teeko Tozay Yorlay, among others. They also made personal financial contributions and pledges on behalf of their respective homes and institutions in support of the successful implementation of the project. Their collective contributions to the project increased the amount of money raised to US$1,441/L$46190, while the rest was made through pledges. The project began last year with hopes to lobby relevant stakeholders to raise the amount of US$15, 444 towards its completion. Earlier in his remarks, Minister Samukai cautioned the student body to avoid “reckless militancy” (unnecessary demonstration/protest) that would have the propensity to derail their ongoing academic sojourn. According to the minister, such militancy or demonstration could destroy the future of the young people and stall their own progress; hurting them in their learning process.“Your engagement in society should be positive if you want to become trusted leaders for the future of your respective communities, counties and the country at large,” Minister Samukai warned.He also urged the students to think of themselves as learners bringing to the table of leadership (as young persons in terms of development) their talents, skills, training and capacities, among other things.“Look beyond where you see yourself today. 40 years ago, I never knew that I would become a government official let alone the Minister of National Defense.”Minister Samukai admonished the students to remain disciplined, resilient and courageous, “because there are benefits to education, training, obedience and trustworthiness, as all my achievements are based on those factors.” He then advised the students to begin the process that would “protect them against recklessness and maintain their vibrancy.”Minister Samukai also praised the NCCC’s Administration, headed by its president, Dr. Yah Donlah Gonway Gono, and the student leadership for the meticulous manner in which they were conducting the affairs of the institution.He also commended the cooperation existing between the NCCC and the political leadership of the county. He said it has undoubtedly built the openness in the minds of the students, thereby creating the kind of vibrancy that continuously leads the college to achieving its future goals.Student Council LeadershipIn his inaugural speech, the student council president, Prince Mehn, promised on behalf of his colleagues that with their installation, the recovery of the institution was on its way.Also installed with Prince Mehn was a female vice president, Jamesetta Sonkarly. They were inducted into their respective offices by the superintendent of the county’s prison compound, Atty. Harris G.T. Wowoah. According to the student council president, his administration would introduce a broad set of policies to foster peace and accelerate more aid to any academically deserving students, thus building a vibrant system of governance. “There is still a long way to go in achieving all of our perceived objectives, but our leadership will launch its recovery program with the hope of rapid, inclusive leadership in the semesters to come.”He said since its inception a few years ago the NCCC has become a fast growing student oriented community college where the enrollment of students has an upward trend. He said the progress is owed to the degree granting programs introduced and the number of qualify instructional staff.About NCCCThe NCCC was established a few years ago by a charter of the new education Act with the mission to, among other things, provide the best possible educational experience to every student wanting to achieve a mid-level tertiary education (an associate of arts degree).It was also established to search for new ways to unify, improve and develop the county as a whole in terms of its academic output.NCCC aims to achieve this by investing in and educating the county’s human resources for the sake of development and a brighter tomorrow that ensures access to educational opportunity for the people of Nimba and Liberia in general.The NCCC, according to its president, Dr. Yah Donlah Gonway Gono, is committed to being the best developed and most peaceful environment for students to receive an education based on nurturance, love, acceptance and encouragement. It aims to create the best environment for exchange students-who would “use education as a tool not as a stool.” NCCC wants to be the best environment to provide opportunities for community service and holistic personal growth; and the best environment to experience the joys of teaching and lifelong learning.

Modern Soil Science Lab Inaugurated in Nimba

first_imgAn American funded non-governmental organization (NGO), Food and Enterprise Development (FED), on October 27, inaugurated a modern soil science laboratory at the Nimba County Community College (NCCC) in Sanniquellie.“The project is to enhance the study of soil quality in order to promote food productivity in the county,” one of the agriculture experts at the ceremony told the Daily Observer.The science lab, built at an estimated cost of US$70, 000, will provide services to the agriculture students in the college and also help the farmers understand the types of soil they are cultivating.“Through the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID/FED), agriculture students enrolled at the four Centers of Excellence in Vocational Agricultural Education in Liberia including the Booker Washington Institute, the Grand Bassa, Lofa and Nimba County Community colleges, will now have access to modern science laboratories,” said Boima Bafaia, USAID/FED Deputy Chief of Party.He said to ensure quality agriculture education in Liberia the USAID/FED has established the Centers in partnership with the Ministry of Education (MOE) at the community colleges. The colleges will offer a two-year National Diploma in Agriculture (NDA) program.“The NDA program,” said Mr. Bafaia, “is Liberia’s market-driven vocational agriculture program that prepares the country’s youth for careers in agriculture.”The NDA, which was developed by the MOE with support from the USAID/FED, offers core courses such as crop cultivation, irrigation, soil science and animal husbandry as well as essential knowledge and skills in entrepreneurship, leadership and communication, according to FED.“USAID/FED is equipping these Centers of Excellence with science labs in order to aid delivery of the NDA and ensure practical learning for students. It will also offer fee-based services to the surrounding communities and other educational institutions to help generate revenue for the upkeep of the laboratory facilities and equipment,” said Mr. Bafaia.The USAID/FED is the flagship program under the Feed the Future Initiative of President Barrack Obama in Liberia and aims to increase productivity and profitability of food crops, stimulate growth of agricultural enterprises and build agriculture workforce capacity.It focuses on staple foods like rice and cassava and food-based value chains, such as vegetables and goats that can assist in improving nutrition and income.USAID/FED started with the NCCC in 2011 and at present, they have built an internet technology (IT) center with a modern computer lab and other facilities, according to Dr. Yar Gonway Gono, President of the College.The local government officials, headed by Supt. Fong Zuagele, were in a happy mood as they toured the facility, which is fully air conditioned and equipped with modern laboratory equipment.“This institution is the Center of Excellence for the citizens of Nimba and we are very happy with the interest which the government and people of the United States of America are showing in this country,” the Superintendent said.“We want to thank President Obama and the American people for ensuring that the young people are skillful enough to feed themselves,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Vieira: I’m ready if Arsenal need me

first_img“If the question is, if I’m ready. Yes, I’m ready,” he told Goal.However, when asked if Arsenal had contacted him, he said: “Honestly and seriously, no. I still have, of course, next year.“It is going to be my contract at least until the end of the season and then after that, anything can happen.“But I have a contract until the end of the season.”The New York City FC manager has led his team to the top of the MLS Eastern Conference after eight games, losing only once. However, a move elsewhere is unlikely as he is contracted to the club until the end of 2018.“When your name is linked with big teams in Europe, it’s good,” he added. “That shows that people are following what you are doing and you are doing a good job.“What is important for me is to focus and concentrate about what I’m doing at the moment.“My head and my mind and my energy is on how to win the next game.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000After coaching Manchester City reserves Patrick Vieira took over the reins at New York CityNEW YORK, United States, Apr 26- Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira believes he is ready to take over as manager of the Premier League club but says he has not been in contact with them.With current Gunners boss Arsene Wenger leaving at the end of the season, after 22 years at the north London outfit, various managers have been touted as potential replacements, and Vieira is no exception.last_img read more

Salah shows why he is the top African in Europe

first_img0Shares0000Liverpool’s Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Salah celebrates scoring on February 24, 2018 © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFParis, France, Feb 26 – Egyptian Mohamed Salah demonstrated again why is the top African performer in the major European leagues this season by scoring in a sixth consecutive match for Liverpool at the weekend.The 2017 African Footballer of the Year struck the second goal during a 4-1 Premier League thrashing of West Ham, taking his season tally to 31 in all competitions since arriving at Anfield from Roma. Moroccan Youssef en-Nesyri had an eventful match for bottom La Liga club Malaga as he scored, had a penalty saved and was red-carded after two cautions.ENGLANDMOHAMED SALAH/SADIO MANE (Liverpool), CHEIKHOU KOUYATE (West Ham)By scoring, Salah equalled Luis Suarez’s best return in a campaign for Liverpool. He steered home into the far corner on his trusted left foot before Mane got in the act by slotting home Andrew Robertson’s low cross for his 13th goal of the season. West Ham’s solitary response came from Mane’s Senegalese international teammate Kouyate intercepting a Liverpool attack and freeing Michail Antonio to score from a narrow angle.RIYAD MAHREZ (Leicester)Mahrez was denied his first goal since ending a self-imposed exile at Leicester by a fantastic save from Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland as the Foxes were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw. The Algerian was starting his first Premier League game since missing 10 days training after Leicester rejected Manchester City’s advances in the final days of the January transfer window. And he nearly made a match-winning contribution with a trademark left-foot strike from outside the box, but Butland made amends for his earlier own-goal with a spectacular stop.SPAINYOUSSEF EN-NESYRI (Malaga)The 20-year-old Morocco striker enjoyed a great start to the game at Athletic Bilbao before it ended in disappointment and disgrace. En-Nesyri put rock-bottom Malaga ahead in the 13th minute but then missed a penalty on the hour after his spot-kick was saved by Bilbao ‘keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga. He was then red-carded six minutes from time after picking up two yellow cards. Bottom club Malaga lost 2-1.ITALYMBAYE NIANG (Torino)Senegalese international Niang equalised for Torino four minutes after the break, but hosts Verona sealed a 2-1 win 13 minutes from time. It was the 23-year-old Niang’s fourth goal since joining the Turin club in the middle of last year from AC Milan after a loan spell at Watford.FRANCK KESSIE (AC Milan)Ivorian Kessie is feeling more at home at AC Milan under new coach Gennaro Gattuso than predecessor Vincenzo Montella. “Gattuso is making us work harder, especially on tactics,” said Kessie, 21, after a 2-0 win at Roma. “With Montella we did very little work in training, but it’s different with Gattuso and you can see the results on the pitch.” Kessie has made 25 appearances since his loan move from Atalanta.GERMANY ISHAK BELFODIL (Werder Bremen)The Algeria striker played a key role in Rick van Drongelen’s own goal as Werder Bremen climbed out of the relegation places with a 1-0 win against Hamburg in a bad-tempered north German derby. Bremen claimed the 86th-minute winner when Van Drongelen nudged the ball over the line as he tried to stop Belfodil getting his foot to it in a goalmouth scramble.NABIL BENTALEB (Schalke 04)Algeria’s former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder marked his Schalke comeback with a late penalty in a 2-0 win at 10-man Bayer Leverkusen. Having been dropped from the squad a fortnight ago and told to sort out his attitude, Bentaleb came off the bench midway through the second half and drilled home a late spot-kick which lifted Schalke to third.FRANCEWAHBI KHAZRI (Rennes)Tunisian Khazri scored a 47th-minute penalty to send Rennes on their way to a 2-0 victory over Troyes. Senegalese forward Ismaila Sarr earnt the spot-kick when he was fouled by Jimmy Giraudon. On-loan Sunderland midfielder Khazri then sent goalkeeper Erwin Zelazny the wrong way from 12 yards.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

In his club career, Maldini won seven Serie A titles and five Champions Leagues with A.C. Milan. 7. Marco Van Basten – Netherlands: Scored one of the most memorable goals of all-time but only played in one World Cup – Click the arrow, right, to see the Northern Irishman who never played in a major international tournament – Van Basten scored one of the most memorable goals in European Championship history to help the Dutch claim their first international title at Euro 1988.

In his club career, Baggio won FIFA World Player of the Year in 1993, as well as two Serie A titles and became the first Italian to score over 300 goals in 50 years. Let’s start off by saying Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are not included in this list because there is still time for the two greatest players of the modern generation to lift the World Cup.But winning the famous trophy is an instant path to footballing immortality, just ask Diego Maradona, Pele, Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane.However, uncontrollable factors, such as fortune, timing and a supporting cast play a pivotal role in World Cup success.  Some of the game’s immortal talents never get a chance. But with the draw for Russia 2018 qualification now complete, and the opportunity for the likes of Messi and Ronaldo to etch their names in football folklore,  talkSPORT takes a look back at those great players never to lift the World Cup.Some truly fantastic footballers have been agonisingly close – click the arrow above, right, to see 10 of themNotable exceptions:George Weah – LiberiaPaul Gascoigne – EnglandLuis Figo – PortugalMichael Laudrup – DenmarkIan Rush – WalesRyan Giggs – WalesEric Cantona – France 10 10 10 2.

Platini played in the World Cup in 1978, 1982 and 1986, but the best France could do in those tournaments was reach the semi-finals in ’82 and ’86. During a five-year stretch in the mid 1980’s, he won two Serie A titles and a European Cup with Juventus. 5. Eusebio – Portugal: Scored an unbelievable 749 goals in 745 appearances at club level but finished third in ’66 – Click the arrow, right, to see the Frenchman who’s targeting FIFA’s top job – He only played in one World Cup, but Eusebio certainly made his mark, scoring a tournament-high nine goals and leading Portugal to a third-place finish in 1966.

Special mass being held tomorrow to remember road traffic victims

first_imgThe World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is held on the third Sunday of November annually to remember those who have been killed on injured on the world’s roads, along with their families, friends, and others who are also affected.A special mass will take place tomorrow at 12 noon in St. Eunan’s Cathedral in Letterkenny.On this special day, we also thank the emergency services who do all they can to help road traffic victims. A spokesperson for WDR says; “Road deaths and injuries are sudden, violent, traumatic events. Their impact is long-lasting, often permanent. Each year, millions of newly injured and bereaved people from every corner of the world are added to the countless millions who already suffer. The cumulative toll is truly tremendous.”“The grief and distress experienced by this huge number of people is all the greater because many of the victims are young, because many of the crashes could and should have been prevented and because governments’ and society’s response to road death and injury and to bereaved and injured victims is often inadequate, unsympathetic, and inappropriate to a loss of life or quality of life.”Special mass being held tomorrow to remember road traffic victims was last modified: November 19th, 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) Tags:accidentRemembranceroad traffic victimsSt Eunanslast_img read more
