Who defines the standards for peace? It’s definitely not those who were perpetrators of conflicts, it is in, in reality the innocent bystanders and those severely affected by the conflicts. A violent person is a threat to his/her community and the attitude of if it’s not your fault it should not be your problem should not only be dropped by young people but should be renounced by all.Messengers of Peace (MOP)-Liberia condemns any form of violent demonstration. We see violent actions as erosions to gains in youth’s employment and empowerment programs as well as an attack on the Liberian investment and human security. There are so many benefits in peaceful negotiations. We believe in open dialogues and consultations in mediation and conflict resolutions. Without exemption, everyone should strive for a peaceful society.This week, we present a dynamic young teenager — Ms. Clinylon Nah. Talking of starting early, Clinylon is surely an inspiration to many young people of her cohort and she has a special message for all young people. The engagement as well as the aspirations of young people in volunteerism for peace is a powerful demonstration of solidarity in action to achieve our shared value in building a better Liberia.-Gwendolyn Myers, Executive Director, MOP-Liberia-Read on:My name is Clinylon Nah; I am 17-year-old student of the St Edward catholic school. I live in Logan Town, Monrovia.I was motivated to be a volunteer peace messenger because of the way I see my fellow young friend in Liberia being used by adults to carry out violent acts. These acts lead to the destruction of public and private properties. I see Messengers of Peace-Liberia, as an organization that has invested significant resources to enhance the leadership qualities of young people in peace advocacy. MOP-Liberia educates young and old people alike about peace-related activities.As a young peace messenger, I’ve been involved in many peace advocacy programs. Amongst which are mediation in conflict between my school mates, support peace education efforts and the ‘dollar-for-peace concert’ on the growth of 20 Peace Clubs to 50 in Liberia.In my school I am not only a peace messenger but also a health club member, who conducts health-related outreach programs in the school.The message I have for my fellow youths out there is don’t allow yourselves to be used like tools to carry out violence. Perpetrators of violence do not in any way help the growth and development of young people. We need our elders to provide quality education and sound pieces of advice to young people and not to use them to do destroy basic healthcare facilities and food security. All these are essential for harmony among us because we (young people) are the future for tomorrow.MOP-Liberia is helping me by strengthening my participation in peacebuilding. I want every young person to get involved. There should be no exemption. Education for peace will help us acquire the value and knowledge to develop the knowledge, attitudes, behavior and skills that will enable us to live in harmony with ourselves and the world at-large.I want to encourage young people of Liberia to stay away from extreme behavior that will cause us hindrance in the future. Let us put on non-violent characters to save our country and the world. We have been used, long enough, as instruments of violence by some greedy and selfish people who have no interest in developing us for the future. We can, and must create the path to peace. Let us join hands with well-meaning organizations in the advocacy of non-violence approach. Let us use the spirit of volunteerism to obtain our goal to see Liberia a better and peaceful place to live.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

The Port Truckers Association of Liberia (PTAL), which transports containers loaded with goods of various kinds to stores and other areas, has threatened to get on a go-slow.If this happens, economists have predicted that there might be a slowdown in the day-to-day economic running of the country as these container trucks transports the basic daily consumption goods to the grocery shops and stores, including supermarkets around the country.Addressing a press conference over the weekend in Monrovia, Mr. William R. Dewalt, president of the PTAL, said for the past two weeks they have been facing problem with the loading process in the port.Dewalt noted that the APM Terminal and the Liberian government went into a 25-year lease agreement, which he noted the company has the right to control the discharging and charging all vessels that come within the port as well as control the movement of containers and discharging of vessels and loading trucks at the port.According to him, for the past weeks, APM Terminal has being delaying in discharging/loading trucks, “all because they do not have good machines at the port and they are making lot of money from the business communities at that port.”He said presently only one machine APM Terminal was using to serve other consignees and leaving members of PTAL. “This is impeding our progress to reach our customers, who distribute to the lowest echelon of the consuming public in the economy,” he added.The president of PTAL disclosed that, APM Terminal issues them loading slip and added that if one has two containers to remove from the port on the same day, but because APM Terminal is slow to load owning to all their machines being broken down and in their garage, their trucks will sit in the port for six to seven hours before one is loaded. “Sometimes, we even sit there until the next day to be loaded by one machine that APM Terminal is now using,” Dewalt added.He stated it even becomes worse when a containers ship is docked at the port, because APM Terminal is only using a single machine, all their trucks will be parked until the containers are off loaded and loaded from and to the vessel.He said the things that exacerbated their anger is APM Terminal charges them for storage and when they are not loaded because of the company’s fault, they are still asked to pay the fee the next day even though it is not their fault to be delayed.“All of these delays have an effect not only on truckers but also consigning and consumers, because if the consigning pay additional storage fees they will increase they product on the Market as the result the economy begins to get tough,” Dewalt stressed.“We have called on them on numerous occasions to be flexible in the process but they have refused. We have been holding back but it has now reached a point where we will have to go on a go-slow even though we do not want to go-slow in our economy,” he said.Dewalt disclosed that they had planned to go-slow today, Monday. However, he said looking at how the economy is now regressing daily, they thought it wise to inform the public, including the Liberian Government and if nothing concrete is done to get things moving fast as it relates to loading their trucks, they are going to definitely result to their go-slow action.When contacted Saturday, July 12, APM Terminal promised to get to us the same day; but up to press time, APM Terminal did not get back to us.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The city’s growth helped boost Los Angeles County to 10,331,939 residents, and California to 37,662,518 – up 1.3 percent. Still, experts noted that the growth of the city and county populations has slowed in recent years. While immigrants continue to converge in the region, the influx is overshadowed by residents fleeing expensive and congested metropolitan areas for the Inland Empire. Riverside County, for example, was the fastest-growing large county in California: Its population topped 2 million – up more than 3 percent. State demographic experts say the state’s population growth has also been slowing as larger families leave for less-expensive states and are replaced by smaller, immigrant families. “What we found with the decline in school enrollment is (larger) families are moving out of California and being replaced with families with less children,” said Daniel Sheya, a Department of Finance demographic specialist. “Your family size is going down. Areas with minimum housing growth tend to either stabilize or lose population.” The fastest-growing city in California last year was Beaumont, in Riverside County, which expanded by 21.2 percent, to 28,250 residents. In Los Angeles County, Santa Clarita was the fastest-growing larger city, increasing by 5.7 percent, to 177,158, many drawn by new housing developments. Nationally, L.A. remains the country’s second-largest city behind New York City, which has about 8.2 million people, and ahead of Chicago with about 2.8 million. email@example.com (916) 446-6723 L.A. grows past 4 million mark Los Angeles’ population has surged past the 4 million mark for the first time. Here’s a look at state figures released Tuesday: Los Angeles: 4,018,080 Los Angeles County: 10,331,939 California: 37,662,518 Fastest-growing large county: Riverside, with its population topping 2 million, a growth rate of 3.3 percent. Fastest-growing city: Beaumont, in Riverside County, population 28,250, a growth rate of 21.2 percent. Source: California Department of Finance SACRAMENTO – Los Angeles’ continuing allure has sent its population surging past the 4 million mark for the first time, according to state figures released Tuesday. While growth over the past year was less than 1 percent, it still propelled the city to an estimated 4,018,080 residents as of Jan. 1, according to the state Department of Finance. Officials said the numbers show that the city remains a magnet for people from all over the country and the world. “Los Angeles is where the world comes together,” said Janelle Erickson, spokeswoman for Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. “Los Angeles is a city of America’s hope and promise, where the dreams of so many have come to life.”
“I think it’s a collective sadness. We’re talking about a team with a great tradition who give their best in events like this.“But those who are in Russia deserved to qualify and in any case Italy stayed out with an Italian President: do we need anything else to say we’re honest and clean?”Infantino, the Swiss-born son of Italian immigrant parents, took over the scandal-battered world body from disgraced president Sepp Blatter in February 2016.“I would have liked to have given the cup to Buffon though,” admitted the 47-year-old.Infantino said that there had been signs of trouble within the four-time world champions long before their dramatic failure in last November’s play-offs.“There have been signals to this effect for a long time, and (Matteo) Darmian’s shot against Sweden could have gone in instead of hitting the post, but he would have only concealed the problems.“Italy were the first in the world for organisation, clubs, training, structures, food, tactics. We forgot that, without work, talent is not enough.“How many young people advance to the first team?”.Italy are without a national coach and a football federation president with the FIGC currently under the guardianship of the national Olympic committee CONI.Infantino said he hoped this would be “as short as possible”.“One or two men cannot change a situation that needs a strong president, backed by all parties, and with a long-term strategy: clubs, leagues, players, everyone has to go in the same direction, as in Germany in the 90s, after the crisis of results, as in England after the Heysel (Stadium disaster), everyone at the table thinking about the common good, today Germany wins the World Cup and Confederations with young players, and England are world champions in Under 17 and Under 20.”Infantino added that he hoped to encourage 40-year-old Juventus and Italy goalkeeping legend Buffon to take a role in football’s governing body when he retires.“Could he take a role in FIFA? I’m going to go in person and get him.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000FIFA president Gianni Infantino wishes Italy had qualified for the 2018 World Cup © AFP/File / Mladen ANTONOVMILAN, Italy, Feb 15 – FIFA president Gianni Infantino revealed Thursday his dispair at Italy’s failure to reach the World Cup finals where he had hoped to hand the trophy to Azzurri captain Gianluigi Buffon.“I’m sad, yes I’m sad for the World Cup. I almost cried,” Infantino, who holds both Swiss and Italian nationality, said in an interview with Italy’s Gazzetta Dello Sport five months ahead of the World Cup final match in Russia.
Mohamed Salah’s brace was followed by goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, who also struck twice to leave Liverpool five up by the 68th minute.Liverpool let their guard down in the closing stages and Roma netted twice to give themselves a slender chance of a second-leg escape act in Italy.But Klopp admitted he couldn’t have hoped for a more dynamic display from his team.“It was the perfect performance for pretty much 80 minutes. We made defensively one mistake, then their penalty is not a penalty but that is the situation and now it is 5-2,” he said.“Of course we would have been more happy with 5-0 or 5-1 but 5-2 is a fantastic result. We go there and try again.“It is absolutely better than I thought before the game.”Following Klopp’s game-plan, Liverpool exploited Roma’s creaky defence as Salah and Mane ran them ragged with their pace and movement.“We had all these runs behind, it changed the game completely and they couldn’t cope with that. We scored these goals and could have scored more,” Klopp said.“That is all positive, at this moment it doesn’t feel all positive because they scored these two goals but tomorrow I will see the really good part of the game.”Aside from Roma’s late double, the only problem for Klopp on a memorable evening was the injury to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain that saw him carried off in the first half.“Oxlade-Chamberlain is probably a really bad injury,” Klopp said.“That is bad news for us. The squad doesn’t get bigger at the moment so we need to be creative in the next few games.”Although Liverpool fans will be dreaming of a final showdown with Real Madrid or Bayern Munich, their players are well aware Roma staged a stunning fightback to eliminate Barcelona in the quarter-finals.The Italians lost the first leg 4-1, but won 3-0 in Rome to go through on away goals.Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson admitted there was frustration at letting Roma back into it and he warned his team-mates not to let down their guard in the return leg.“It felt as though we were in full control but we basically gave them two goals, you can’t do that in the Champions League,” he said.“At the same time we played well, we will go there with a three-goal advantage.“Overall we have got to stay positive. We knew it would not be easy here, we know it will not be easy there.“It will be a challenge but one we will look forward to and one we will hopefully finish them off.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Jurgen Klopp (R) applauds the Liverpool fans along with James Milner after Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League semi-final first leg win over Roma © AFP / Oli SCARFFLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Apr 25 – Jurgen Klopp saluted Liverpool’s “fantastic” 5-2 demolition of Roma on Tuesday as the Reds manager soaked up a Champions League semi-final first leg goal spree that was beyond his expectations.Klopp’s side are within touching distance of the final after crushing Roma at Anfield.
1 Liverpool superstar Raheem Sterling Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists he is ‘relaxed’ about Raheem Sterling’s contract situation despite claims that the latest discussions have failed to find a solution to a long-running impasse.The club have tabled what a couple of weeks ago Rodgers described as an ‘incredible’ offer – reported to be in the region of £100,000 a week.A few weeks before that the Reds boss had suggested an agreement was imminent but latest reports suggest there has been no movement in negotiations.Sterling only signed an improved contract in December 2012 and his current deal does not expire until 2017, which is why Rodgers is content to play a waiting game.“There is nothing new to report on it. I am quite relaxed about Raheem’s situation,” said Rodgers.“He is not going anywhere in a hurry – he has still got this season and another couple of years to go on his contract.“I think it is quite obvious when you look at Raheem’s situation anyone with Raheem’s best interests would see Liverpool as the best option for his career.“He turned 20 in December and he has made 114 appearances, which is a remarkable amount at a club of this size to be given that opportunity.“He has made it clear himself that he loves being here and I think he was quoted as saying this is the best place for any young player to develop, so that makes me quite relaxed.“I am sure the club and his representatives will find the solution for that.”
