‘Support the Person Capable for the Job’

first_imgCentral Bank Governor Dr. J. Mills Jones has called on Liberians to support a person capable of doing the work for them, and not to undermine their compatriot.Governor Jones made the statement Wednesday, January 6, at program marking the dedication of the Coalfield market in Paynesville City.The CBL Governor said there are capable Liberians to move the country forward to meet the desired goal.He said Liberians should not allow people to fool them that they cannot move the country forward, noting that it only takes the support of all Liberians to help the one who is willing, and not to undermine him/her.Governor Jones said, “I am committed to working with all of us to see how we can move this country forward, to see how we can move Liberia forward. We are committed to that whether we are at the Central Bank or outside of the CBL; we are committed to working with all Liberians to move Liberia forward.”“And if you ask me if we can do it, my answer to you is ‘yes, we can!’ And don’t let anybody fool you because we can create a better future for ourselves.”The Central Bank Governor whose micro loan scheme across the country has been viewed by Legislators and other Liberians as a political ploy to position himself to contest the presidency in 2017, urged the audience to desist from acts that bring their compatriot down while the person is striving to go up.“But we need to put down the crab mentality,” he told his audience, “where if you see somebody going up then you want to pull them down. If you keep pulling people down, we will continue to remain down the bucket because nobody will be able to see the top of the bucket, if we continue to pull people down.”He alluded that everyone has his/her shortcomings, and no one is perfect. However, the CBL Governor cautioned Liberians to consciously think and support the person that can perform better instead of getting people who are ill-prepared and don’t mean any good toward their country.“Our doors remain open; you are our brothers and sisters and all of us must be our brothers’ keepers; therefore, we need to work together to ensure that our country is on the right path with the nations,” he said.Also speaking, superintended of the Coalfield Market, Mrs. Korto Rogers, showered praises on Governor Jones for his immense economic support to Liberians, especially businesswomen.Mrs. Rogers said Governor Jones and Mr. Dee-Maxwell Kemayah, president of the Liberian Business Association, contributed financially to the roofing of the market, calling their contributions “‘timely,’ because business people were embarrassed selling in the rain.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Homecoming! England star back in the Everton blue for Duncan Ferguson’s testimonial

first_img1 Good reception for @WayneRooney pic.twitter.com/vaetlBULha— School of Science (@SOS1878) August 2, 2015//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Wayne Rooney appeared in an Everton shirt for the first time in over a decade as the Manchester United captain turned out for Duncan Ferguson’s testimonial on Sunday.The 29-year-old made the short switch down the East Lancs Road for £25.6m in August 2004 at the age of just 18, and has since got to within touching distance of the Red Devils’ all-time goalscoring record.But Rooney’s roots are entrenched in Merseyside, and he was happy to pay tribute to one of the Toffees’ most iconic figures in a friendly at Goodison Park against Villarreal. Wayne Rooney center_img Rooney, though, had to settle for something he may not associate with – a place on the bench.

Simone Zaza ends unhappy West Ham spell by sealing Valencia loan switch

first_img1 Simone Zaza has cut short his loan spell at West Ham to join Valencia for the rest of the season.The Italy international joined the Hammers on loan from Juventus in the summer, but never found his feet in London, failing to score in 11 appearances in all competitions.With the terms of his loan dictating that the switch would become permanent if he made 14 appearances, he fell out of favour and the deal has now been cancelled, freeing him to join Valencia.“Valencia Club de Futbol have completed the signing of Simone Zaza on loan from Juventus until the end of the season,” a club statement said. “The player passed a medical with the club and signed his contract on Sunday. The agreement will see him becone a Valencia CF player until the conclusion of the 2016/17 campaign, with an option to buy.”The 25-year-old, capped 16 times by Italy, helped Juventus to the Serie A title, Coppa Italia and Italian Supercoppa while in Turin, but is already becoming well-travelled in his career, having also played for Atalanta, Sampdoria, Juve Stabia, Viareggio, Ascoli and Sassuolo.

Liverpool join Manchester City and United in tracking Turkish starlet

first_imgLiverpool have joined the race for Manchester United and Manchester City target Caglar Soyuncu.The defender is considered one of the best young players in Turkish football and the same-city rivals both attempted to take him to Manchester in the summer.However, the 21-year-old stayed put at Freiburg, where he is expected to remain until next summer.The strong centre-back is a first-team regular in the Bundesliga and has also become a mainstay in the Turkish national team.And Freiburg, who only signed him from Altinordu last year, are bracing themselves for further interest from England.According to Turkish-Football.com, Liverpool are the third Premier League club to express an interest in landing Soyuncu.The Merseyside club have had some problems in defence this season and it has been suggested that the youngster could help steady the ship.Frieburg do not want to sell him midway through the season but a bid of around £20m may be too difficult to turn down for a player who is still largely unproven.

Campfire cause of Day Fire?

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe Christmas Truce of 1914 proved that peace is possibleEarlier, cooler weather had helped hundreds of firefighters get a line around about 25 percent of the Day Fire, which started Labor Day in Ventura County’s Los Padres National Forest and has burned out of control since. The blaze is burning in wilderness north of the Santa Clarita Valley and has come within feet of the shoreline of Pyramid Lake. Nearly 1,500 firefighters were battling the blaze, which has scorched 15,687 acres since it started a week ago. No homes have been damaged and no injuries were reported. LOS PADRES NATIONAL FOREST – A small campfire apparently ignited the enormous Day Fire that has burned some 21 square miles of forest since Labor Day and on Monday moved toward Interstate 5, U.S. Forest Service officials said. Officials refused to provide details on how the blaze started, only to quote from a prepared statement that said “suspects and witnesses” were being questioned in a fire caused by “a member of the public burning a small amount of material.” Late in the afternoon, the fire jumped the old Highway 99 west of the I-5, shutting down the freeway because of heavy smoke. The closure was planned from Parker Road in Castaic to Highway 138 near Gorman, said CHP Officer Michelle Esposito. “It crossed a safety zone and is coming close to the freeway,” Esposito said. last_img read more
