Gov’t, Partners Hold Second Dialogue on Social Protection

first_imgParticipants at the Second National Dialogue on Social Protection.The Government of Liberia and the International Labor Organization (ILO) have begun holding the second National Dialogue on Social Protection in the country.The meeting is in line with the second strategic objective policy mechanism that seeks to support poor and vulnerable groups – which include children, the elderly and persons living with disabilities – and to attain an improved minimum standard of living in line with minimum social protection.The dialogue is being held at a resort in Monrovia and is expected to agree on key minimum guarantees for the establishment of the social protection floor in Liberia.Gender Minister Julia Duncan Cassell, who addressed the opening session, described the holding of the Dialogue  as an important milestone in the history of the country especially when it seeks to address the needs of less fortunate Liberians.“Phase one of the implementation of the policy provides that Liberia will continue to develop three primary social assistance instruments to include the social cash transfer for households that are labor constrained, a productive social protection program for those with capacity to work and earn a living to help them graduate from extreme poverty and a school feeding program,” she indicated.The Gender Minister revealed that the government will also undertake a review of other social protection instruments that will support a move toward a social protection floor.“Once established, the social protection floor will form part of long-term decisions to upscale and effectively target national social protection programs that will be appropriate in the Liberian context,” she said.Minister Cassell hoped that the program will help reduce marginalization and attain rights as well as prevent the risk of children, the elderly and people living with disabilities.She lauded the International Labor Organization (ILO) for its invaluable assistance in helping to build a comprehensive social protection system for Liberia.ILO’s Social Protection Officer Valeria Nesterenko praised the desire of social security institutions of the Government of Liberia, the UN and foreign partners who are aiming to ensure that every citizen gets the minimum guarantee that will enable them to get a decent living.She said while gains were being made in the attainment of social protection, areas such as those in the formal and informal sectors are yet to benefit fully from other work-related programs.The ILO Officer lauded the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection for its vigorous awareness initiatives that have made it possible to hold discussions on a way forward to achieve the social protection floor through national dialogue.The need for social protection is attributed to a shortage of finance, food, and fuel shortage, otherwise referred to as the triple effect, that affected the world.According to Gabriel N. Fernandez, ILO National Social Protection Coordinator, social protection has its genesis at the point where the UN decided to assist fragile and developing countries to mitigate the impact of the triple effect crisis.Since then, cash transfer from 15 different organizations, including the Liberia National Red Cross, has revived the lives of thousands of poor and vulnerable Liberians; and by December 2016, the program had reached a total of 166,000.The program also seeks to improve the dignity of service delivery at public health facilities, raise awareness among communities as well as ensure that healthcare delivery is not donor dependent.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Diamond Secondary dethroned

first_img…as Region 4 STEAM fair concludesThe Diamond Secondary School was kicked out of the top spot after the hosting of this years’ instalment of the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) competition. The biennial competition which garnered participation from over 50 schools within Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica), saw the presentation of over 100 projects on Monday, March 5 and Tuesday, March 6.Diamond Secondary School, the 2016 winner, entered the competition with eagerness and confidence, registering 11 projects. However, this was not enough to take home the 2018 crown. Annandale Primary reigned supreme by gaining the top spot, leaving Diamond to second place. Despite never having competed before, Lancaster Secondary was the underdog in the competition, gaining the third spot. One of their teachers shared that the students were on the verge of dropping out of the competition, owing to the fact that they never competed for in such a competition before.Students of the Diamond Secondary School showcasing their prizesCoordinator of the event, Loren Park, noted that this year’s competition was very intense; admitting without hesitation that the committee encountered some glitches resulting in the delay of the results, but nevertheless they managed to pull through.“The truth is that there were some glitches… however, I am very happy that we have the correct results so there is not going to be any concerns being expressed. I would like to express to all the schools, teachers, parents and most importantly students my sincere apologies because as the Coordinator of this event I am responsible,” he said.Park disclosed that he has already begun to ‘post-mortem’ this year’s competition with the view of implementing some changes for future competitions. He noted that these changes would clear-up other challenges, as well as pave the way for faster results. “We need to have a much smoother executed science fair in relation to the dissemination of the results and we had some challenges owing to several factors. However, I am giving assurance that for the next fair it would be more streamlined and smoother as the appropriate systems would be implemented,” he promised.On the other hand, Chief Judge of the competition, Gerald Jewram, in his evaluation of the STEAM fair noted that although there were a number of excellent projects presented, there were some faults. He expressed hope that students, teachers and Ministry officials can work together to correct those faults. He also commended the students on the vast amount of knowledge they possessed on their respective subject areas. “We the judges found that several of the students fully understood their projects and did a remarkable job in explaining it, thus we are of the view that it’s the right direction to go for several of the schools,” Jewram said.Jewram stressed that the challenges that rose out of the competition need to be readily addressed before they can erode the integrity of the competition. “I can tell you that there were greater points of commendations than the faults. However, let us not fool ourselves that if these issues are not properly addressed in a timely manner, it can affect greatly the impressive track record built thus far,” he noted.In the winner’s circle for the Nursery category were Hand-en-Veldt Nursery, Helena Nursery and Annandale North Nursery school.For the Primary category; Annandale Primary, La Bonne Intention Primary, Cane Grove Primary and Clonbrook Primary were amongst the winners.Expectantly Diamond Secondary copped a number of prizes in the Secondary category. They were accompanied by Lancaster Secondary, Hope Secondary and Beterverwagting Secondary.The judges indicated that after summing up the various sections and categories, Annandale Primary with their Mathematics project was adjudged as the overall winner. Coordinator Park disclosed that the presentation to the top three schools will be made at a specially arranged presentation ceremony slated for next week. He thanked several donors and sponsors, declaring that had it not been for the generous efforts of several corporate individuals and companies, the success of the STEAM far would not have been possible.last_img read more

President ignores constitutional directive for March 19 elections date

first_img…says will wait on Appellate Courts before setting election dateWith little over a month left before the constitutionally mandated date for hosting of elections expires, Minister of State Joseph Harmon says President David Granger is awaiting the outcome of the Appellate Courts before he sets a date for the hosting of General and Regional Elections.Harmon was at the time addressing the media at a post plenary press conference on Friday. He was asked directly what is stopping the President from announcing an election date.Such a step would therefore give the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) both Legislative and Executive election date targets to prepare for.“Matters have been filed in the court in relation to this matter. These matters are still alive in the court. Therefore it would be premature for the President to say I am calling an election and these matters are still engaging the attention of our courts.”While he acknowledged to the media that there is no stay on the judgement against their Cabinet meetings, Harmon maintained that the Government and President continue to function.Harmon was also asked if President David Granger would be reaching out to Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, to request a meeting. At a press conference on Thursday, Jagdeo had made it clear that he would not be seeking a meeting with the President.Jagdeo had noted that President Granger needs to set an election date and that the Opposition will not return to the National Assembly unless it’s for election business. According to the Minister, however, President Granger has never shut the door on talks with the Opposition Leader.“You would recall the last time the two parties met; it was at the request of the Leader of the Opposition. And when he made that request, I asked him to cite the items he wants discussed on the agenda.”“The President meets with the Leader of the Opposition to deal with serious business of the State. It is in that capacity as Leader of the Opposition that he meets with the President. As far as I am aware, the President has always made himself available to meet with the Leader of the Opposition.”Harmon was also unable to say when Government would seek to have the National Assembly convened to extend the election timeline. When questioned by the media, the Minister said the National Assembly will be called when important matters are on the agenda to be discussed. When asked if elections and extending the 90-day timeline were not important matters, Harmon backpedalled.“Yes elections are an important matter. Do you require Parliament to be called right now? What is it that you want Parliament to be called about elections? You are aware that these matters are in the court.”“There’s actually an application for a stay of execution, which will be dealt with either Tuesday or Wednesday of next week… so there is action taking place. Timelines are being set for certain things. Therefore it is premature to be stating that elections are this or that.”Since the passage of the No-confidence Motion in December of last year, there have been several inconclusive meetings at GECOM to determine a timeline for elections; a timeline that would take elections well past March was eventually announced. However, the parliamentary Opposition has not warmed to this proposed timeframe.The three-month time frame in which the polls should be held was validated in a judicial interpretation by acting Chief Justice Roxane George, who declared that the motion was validly passed 33-32.The complaint has been that GECOM was unforthcoming about its preparedness for the mandatory elections despite being mandated by the Constitution of Guyana to hold elections within three months of the passage of a no-confidence motion.But at a recent press conference, GECOM’s Chief Elections Officer Keith Lowenfield had told the media that the Secretariat needs another 148 days before it is fully ready to host the constitutionally mandated General and Regional Elections.The parliamentary Opposition and other observers have accused Government of attempting to delay the holding of the constitutionally mandated elections following the passage of the No-confidence Motion.last_img read more

$20.3 million in tax money buys a lot of junk mail

first_imgRep. David Dreier, R-San Dimas, offered tips on home improvements. And Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., who lost her primary race last year, sent out a taxpayer-funded newsletter a few months before the election that included this simple observation: “Convicted felons can vote,” she said, if “your” prison sentence has been served, parole or probation completed and fines paid. While campaigning, McKinney, who is black, noted that blacks make up a disproportionately large share of the prison population, which she said dilutes their voting strength. A dozen House members spent more than $133,000 each to send 9.8 million pieces of mass mailings. Total cost? $1.8 million. Sometimes the lawmakers’ taxpayer funded mailings topped what they paid for direct mail through their campaign funds. Of the 64 House members with at least $100,000 in taxpayer-funded mailing expenses – and overwhelmingly for mass mailings – 42 were Republicans and 22 were Democrats, the AP review found. In sharp contrast, 59 lawmakers in the 435-member House – 35 Republicans and 24 Democrats – spent nothing on mass mailings. They tended to be the more experienced House members, often with 14 or more years of service. Mass mailings cannot be blatantly political, but they still can have political benefits, said Pete Sepp, a spokesman for the National Taxpayers’ Union, which has condemned mass mailings. “A taxpayer-financed mailing doesn’t have to say `re-elect me’ to have an impact on voters,” Sepp said. “A glossy newsletter splashed with the incumbent’s achievements in Congress can build useful credentials a lawmaker can take with him to the ballot box. The franking privilege is one of the main cogs in Congress’ PR machine.” Franking, practiced since the early days of the republic, lets members of Congress send mail with just a signature where the postage would normally be affixed. Although the mailings are regulated by a congressional commission to guard against overt political appeals and cannot go out within 90 days of an election, they still sometimes take a dig at the opposition. In a June 2006 newsletter, Rep. Fortney “Pete” Stark, D-Calif., noted that under the Republican majority, Congress had passed tax cuts that “benefit the wealthiest Americans at the expense of working families.” Stark has been among the biggest users of the congressional franking privilege. For 2006, his mass mailings alone cost $172,357, an amount large enough to rank him among the top congressional mailers. House documents reported his mailing costs to be about $37,000 less. The AP received no explanation for the discrepancy from a spokesmen.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – U.S. House members spent $20.3 million in tax money last year to send constituents what’s often the government equivalent of junk mail – meeting announcements, tips on car care and job interviews, surveys on public policy and just plain bragging. They sent nearly 116 million pieces of mail in all, many of them glossy productions filled with flattering photos and lists of the latest roads and bridges the lawmaker has brought home to the district, an Associated Press review of public records shows. Some offered advice on topics one would more commonly expect to see in a consumer-advice column. “Keep your car properly maintained” to improve mileage, suggested Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Pa., in a newsletter on how to deal with rising energy prices. last_img

SEARCH TEAMS CLOSE TO LOCATING MARY BOYLE’S BODY AS SISTER SPEAKS TO GARDAI

first_imgThe search for Donegal’s longest missing person may be coming close to a dramatic conclusion.People searching for tragic Mary Boyle believe they have pinpointed the specific area where she may be.Mary was just seven when she disappeared in 1977 while out walking near her uncle Gerry Gallagher’s home in Cashelard outside Ballyshannon. Now Mary’s twin sister Ann has given Gardai her first ever statement on her sister’s disappearance.Ann, who gave her statement to Assistant Garda Commissioner Kieran Kenny said she still feels Mary is in Cashelard.“I have told the Assistant Commissioner that I believe Mary is up there at Cashelard where we are searching. And now I have given a statement.“It’s the first time I’ve ever been asked. I was a child but my memory is still good,” she said. Ann has been joined in the search by Margo who is a distant cousin of Mary’s family.She too believes they are getting close to finally giving closure to Mary’s mother Ann and all the Boyle family.“Mary will be found. There is no doubt about that. Mary wants to be found and I won’t give up until I find her.“We have been searching there since last January but we now believe we are very close,” she said.The area where the search team is now concentrating in is about 300 metres from Mary’s grandparents home whom she was visiting on the day she disappeared.

Donley and Lynch Earn PFL Weekly Honors

first_imgDonley was named PFL Special Teams Player of the Week as he was responsible for 13 points in the Bulldogs’ 19-14 PFL victory against Marist on Saturday.  He connected on all four of his field goals, becoming one of seven kickers in the FCS this season to go perfect while making four or more field goals. Donley connected on kicks of 20, 30, 27 and 22 yards in addition to making his lone PAT try. He is the first Bulldogs kicker to make four field goals in a game since Billy Jenssen in 2011. Donley, Lynch and the rest of the Bulldogs host Davidson on Saturday at 1 p.m.  Print Friendly Version ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Danny Donley and Sean Lynch earned their first-career weekly Pioneer Football League honors, the league announced on Sunday, Oct. 22. Lynch was awarded PFL Defensive Player of the Week as he intercepted a pair of passes to help Drake win a PFL defensive battle. His first interception stopped a Marist drive just before it entered Drake territory in the second quarter. Lynch’s second pick came in the fourth quarter and halted the Red Foxes at the Drake 15-yard line. He also had a game-high 11 tackles (eight solo). Lynch’s lone tackle for loss also provided a pivotal stop, coming on 4th-and-1 at the Drake 23-yard line and forcing a turnover on downs to start the second quarter.last_img read more
