OLYMPIC HOUSE OPENED

first_imgBy Sulayman BahThe Gambia National Olympic Committee headquarters which was closed by the State has been finally opened, Foroyaa Sport report.The move to open the headquarters follows an announcement by the National Sports Council after months of intense negotiations.The Gambia Olympic House was forced to cease operations and the staff denied access by security personnel acting on orders ‘from the top’ in April this year in the wake of a series of disputes between the GNOC executive and government.The furore between the two began after the technical arm of government, the Sports Council, questioned the credibility of the NOC’s elections in which Sheriff Jammeh, the incumbent’s rival, for the position of president, boycotted the polls raising issues with the voters’ list.The brouhaha reached a point when the International Olympic Committee warned of meddling into NOC matters and urging affiliate members to instead resolve their differences internally.Matters took a new trajectory after the NOC bureau was stormed and shut down for close to four months with the dust only settling after government and few NOC officials sat on a round-table meeting to reach a peaceful agreement.What was agreed there was not disclosed, but NSC yesterday declared the closed office opened.A press statement from the NSC reads: “The National Sports Council wish to bring to the notice of the general public that following the closure of the Gambia National Olympic Committee’s office some four months ago, as a result of internal differences and wrangles within the GNOC, series of meetings were held with the concerned stakeholders with a view to reaching a peaceful end to their long standing disputes. Considering the difficulties that the athletes and secretariat staff of the GNOC have been going through during this period, the NSC is pleased to announce that a breakthrough has been reached to reopen Olympic House to all essential staff and the general public.In the meantime, the NSC will continue to explore all avenues to work with all concerned stakeholders in order to bring about a final and an amicable end to all internal differences at the GNOC. As the leadership of the country continues to safeguard, protect and promote the general welfare of the youth, particularly the athletes in this case, the NSC therefore solicits the cooperation and support of all in its quest to regularize and develop Gambian sports.”There was still a security presence when this news outlet visited the bureau yesterday afternoon.Efforts to sound the GNOC president Momodou Dibba’s view proved unsuccessful at the time of going to press.]]>last_img read more

Review England – Belgium

first_imgWith a moment of individual brilliance, Adnan Januzaj gave Belgium a 1-0 victory and the first place in Group G.The final two matches of the group stage are soon upon us…Here are the teams for #ENGBEL!#ENG #BEL pic.twitter.com/rvom0sQ4Ru— FIFA World Cup (@FIFAWorldCup) June 28, 2018Januzaj tips United to return to the top Obinna Echi – November 14, 2018 Adnan Januzaj has backed his former club Manchester United to start challenging for the Premier League title soon.Januzaj believes United need to make the…Even though first place was up for grabs, both Gareth Southgate and Roberto Martinez decided to make multiple changes to their starting lineups today in Kaliningrad. There was no Harry Kane, no Eden Hazard, no Romelu Lukaku and no Kevin De Bruyne. The lack of star power didn’t mean the fans weren’t still hoping to see an entertaining encounter.A defensive lapse allowed England to have a moment in the opening two minutes that ended with Courtois blocking a cross before it came to Jamie Vardy. Youri Tielemans blasted a long-distance strike in the 7th minute, catching Jordan Pickford a bit asleep. Luckily for England’s goalkeeper, the shot was in the middle of the net, so he made the save. A couple of minutes later, Adnan Januzaj made a few dribbles and then lobbed a cross that came to Mitchy Bashuayi. He headed the ball back towards the central area in front of Pickford and even though there wasn’t a distinct shot, the ball rolled towards the goal line before Gary Cahill cleared it just before it went in.Tielemans received the game’s first yellow card. In this contest, cards were particularly important, as they could determine the final standings in case of a draw. With this card, Belgium had two more than England overall. Another foul on Danny Rose earned Belgium’s second booking. This time the guilty party was Leander Dendoncker. Whistles were coming from all over the stadium. The fans weren’t happy. The Belgian defensive trio was passing the ball among each other, while the English players refused to press. It was more than obvious both teams were satisfied with the current situation.Gareth Southgate decided to save his main defender’s energy and replaced John Stones with Harry Maguire at the half. In the 51st minute, Adnan Januzaj’s individual brilliance gave The Red Devils a 1-0 advantage. He dummied Danny Rose and then curled a beautiful left-footed shot, leaving Pickford with no choice but to take the ball out of his net. Belgium took over first spot in Group G with the goal. Later on, Thomas Vermaelen suffered a cut on his eyebrow after an aerial duel with Jamie Vardy. Marcus Rashford missed from an ideal one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper in the 66th minute. What a miss! Courtois got a touch on the ball, but it doesn’t change the fact that if Rashford wants to be considered as a starter, he must not miss those types of opportunities.Roberto Martinez decided to give the recently recovered Vincent Kompany a run, taking off Vermaelen to make place for the experienced center back. The next swap was Danny Welbeck for Trent Alexander-Arnold, signalling a wish to tie the game. Although, based on the play, that wish was really weak. On the other hand, why would England try to earn a draw? Losing this match meant a meeting with Colombia (possibly without James Rodriguez) in the Round of 16 and then (potentially) either Switzerland or Sweden in the quarter-finals. It also meant avoiding Brazil, as well as the other superpowers in the top part of the draw. Pickford saved Dries Mertens’ effort in the 89th minute. Marouane Fellaini missed in the 92nd minute and that was it. Belgium won for the third time in three matches, finished first with 9 points and will meet Japan next.last_img read more

Earthquake monument a timely reminder

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKingston, Jamaica, January 30, 2017 – The 1907 Earthquake Monument is among the starkest reminders of one of the most fateful days in Jamaica’s history.  The towering structure sits on land at Bumper Hall in Greenwich Town, St. Andrew, where 501 unidentified victims of the quake, which occurred 110 years ago on January 14, were interred.History recounts that they were among the over 1,000 persons who perished during the 6.5 magnitude earthquake at approximately 3:30 p.m. which, for 36 seconds, rocked the foundation of the growing Kingston metropolis. “Screams split the air. Within 10 to 20 seconds, a town of 446,000 had been rendered immobile,” one report recounts.  Its devastating impact was superseded only by the 1692 earthquake which sank a significant portion of Port Royal, resulting in the survivors of that devastation resettling on the adjacent area of land across the harbour which is now Kingston.The 1907 earthquake’s destruction was compounded by a fire which broke out, limiting rescue efforts by first responders searching for survivors and bodies amongst the rubble to which numerous buildings had been reduced.  The fire, according to historians, swept an area bounded to the east by Mark Lane; north by South Parade; west along Orange Street; and south by the Caribbean Sea.  Persons who were trapped by the rubble or otherwise unable to escape the flames perished. This, as the city was rendered helpless consequent on the destruction of the Jamaica Fire Brigade’s equipment and infrastructure, and broken water mains.The next day, after the dust had settled and the smoke dissipated, over 1,000 persons lay dead either amidst the rubble or at the public hospital where numerous victims succumbed to injuries after being admitted.   Half of the victims were found burnt and charred along the principal streets of the city, which was plunged into semi-darkness, with the overall damage estimated at £2 million (approximately $316 million).  Survivors, whose homes or businesses were destroyed, sought refuge in parks or on the adjoining lawns of wrecked houses.Among the victims were: Deputy Chairman of the Royal Mail Steam Packet Company of London and Member of Parliament, Sir James Ferguson; importer and plantation owner, Edgar deCordova; Head of the West India Regiment Royal Army, who was only identified as Lieutenant R.R.; and Cuban Consul General, J. Perez.  Others included: seven European and 13 native West India Regiment Army Non-Commissioned Officers and their families; 90 children reportedly killed when the school building they were in collapsed; 120 Cuban employees of the Machado Cigar Factory; 35 employees of the local tourist bureau; and 10 Americans who were buried in unmarked graves.Among the buildings either severely damaged or destroyed were: the Supreme Court; Nova Scotia Bank; Congregational Churches; the Myrtle Bank Hotel; the City Council’s office; the Jamaica Club; Hope College; the railway terminus; all newspaper offices; and the cable company’s office.Following the earthquake, a special committee was established to spearhead the monument’s erection at Bumper Hall. Among its members were representatives of The Gleaner Company, which reported extensively on the devastation.  Research conducted by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust (JNHT) shows that the structure was built using reinforced concrete.Speaking at a recent 110th anniversary commemorative ceremony organised by the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) at Bumper Hall, Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport Minister, Hon. Olivia Grange, who has portfolio responsibility for the JNHT, said the agency was asked to analyse and assess various aspects of  the monument in 2015.  “Excavations carried out around the monument confirmed that the most significant aspect…was actually buried. A section of the wall surrounding the burial chamber of the approximately 500 unknown victims was discerned by the JNHT team in March 2015, and its presence was confirmed in an article of the Daily Gleaner of Thursday, June 3, 1909,” she informed.  Ms. Grange further advised that the structure, which was restored, is located in the centre of the two burial trenches extending north and south.Opposition Leader and Member of Parliament for South West St. Andrew, where the monument is located, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, who also spoke at the ceremony, hailed the community support mobilised in the restoration effort.  “The people of Greenwich Town and residents of Little Eighth Street in particular have been the guardians of this national heritage site for the past 110 years. They are, therefore, deserving of commendation as we pay respect to those whose remains lay here,” she said.Mrs. Simpson Miller also expressed gratitude for the input of several entities in the exercise. They include: the Culture, Health, Arts, Sports and Education (CHASE) Fund; Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF) and Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo).  “We also thank other agencies such as the Social Development Commission (SDC), Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF); Jamaica National Heritage Trust (JNHT); Urban Development Corporation (UDC); and National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA),” she said.     Mrs. Simpson Miller also praised the ODPEM for continuing to highlight the importance of earthquake awareness.While earthquake awareness is observed annually in January, ODPEM has, this year, embarked on a three-month campaign, from January to March, under the theme: ‘Drop. Cover. Hold…Earthquake Readiness is within Your Control’.ODPEM’s Director General, Major Clive Davis, who also spoke at the ceremony, said that for the duration of the campaign, “we will endeavour to bring information to the public, to sensitise and remind the populace of the earthquake hazards and how to manage them.” Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#magneticmedianews The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provolast_img read more

Estimated 80M savings through Bahamas Govt employee verification

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#80milliontobesavedinemployeeverification, #magneticmedianews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, August 4, 2017 – Nassau – The government’s public sector employee verification of workers which begins next Tuesday could lead to a cost saving of $80M per year in recurrent revenue on salaries; so says John Pinder, the President of the Bahamas Public Services Union.   Pinder is reporting that he supports the move by Prime Minister Hubert Minnis, explaining that the process will weed out phantom workers and end other unethical practices which are costing the Bahamian people.The figure of $80.1M comes from a belief, by John Pinder, that Government could save 3% of the $2.67B national budget .   Pinder said that dead, incarcerated and missing people are all still being paid by Government and in some cases families are collecting the money.   Pinder added that there is even more room to cut back by reviewing those who continue to be employed by Government despite being unfit or unsuitable for their jobs.The Union President recommended that more attention be given to what he called, ‘succession training’.    The verification programme, explained the Minister of Finance and DPM, Peter Turnquest is to clean up and see where there can be cuts to the over $650M government current pays per year in public workers salaries.#MagneticMediaNews#80milliontobesavedinemployeeverificationlast_img read more
