GC Launches Proposed Revenue Sharing Formula

first_imgLaunching the proposed Revenue Sharing Formula, Finance and Development Planning Minister Samuel Tweah says all should read and comprehend the document. Authorities of the Governance Commission (GC) on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 convened a consultative forum in Monrovia, at which it launched a proposed revenue sharing formula to be used across the country once completed and enacted into law by the 54th Legislature.The event, which brought together representatives from various ministries and agencies, as well as a few members of the legislature, was launched by Samuel Tweah, Minister of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP).In his proposed revenue sharing formula document, Tweah said the people across the country stand to equitably benefit should the Legislature consider it a law by an appropriate legislation.“This study cuts across two key pillars of the Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD) to include Power to the People and Sustaining the Peace. The agenda is that people have access to their resources, and have the means to determine their social and economic livelihoods and the only way you can achieve that is if institutional structures enable them to do that,” he said.He added, “The other pillar is about sustaining the peace. A lot of times we see peace efforts through the absence of conflict or when there is no violence. We think this means we have peace, but that is not just the case. If we dig deep down in why we go into conflict most times with each other in our lives, we get to know that it is because of inequity.”Tweah said that lack of equitable distribution of Liberia’s resources over the years since independence has led to the many crises being experienced, and may continue to thread on the same sad note if the right frameworks are not put into place and executed in accordance with the prevailing circumstances.A cross-section of the audience with Senator Gbleh-Bo Brown (far right) and Representative Larry Younquoi (center)“Imagine how unfair it is for a nurse working in Monrovia to receive more money in salary as well as other benefits than nurse who works in River Gee, even though the two have the same qualifications, and competence. This is unfair, but the only way to correct it is to have a good structure and an uncompromising system,” he said.He said that the clear way to fight fragility in the country is to empower people and develop institutions that will promote equity.“This is going to be a critical milestone. We may not have everything equally shared among the people, but it is a good practice that people live without stress or worry about how they will afford to eat or take care of their basic needs. This is why I challenge you, fellow Liberians and our foreign partners, to read this document that will help us succeed in curtailing our collective national challenges at hand,” Minister Tweah said.He said the Swedish Government, that has invested and continues to invest in the policies leading to the reformation of the governance system of Liberia, will help our government to reestablish the agriculture development bank.“This will allow us loan money to people involved in agricultural activities at an appreciable level, and the benefit thereof will be immense,” he said without any clarification as to when and how the reestablishment of the agriculture bank will be done.Tweah said that the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) led government will reform the national fiscal budget of 2019/2020 as well as the ones ahead.“This will give confidence to the investors, and our growth will take a positive dimension,” he said, while commending donor partners for their commitment to doing what is good for Liberia.Cllr. Nwabudike lectures on the overview of the proposed revenue sharing formula.Senator J. Gbleh-Bo Brown, chairman on the Senate Committee for governance and reform, said the initiative is a good venture simply because, when passed into law, it will allow people in the rural areas carry out their own developments without solely relying on central government to get them done.“This brings in local social and economic growth, because the locals will be happy if some of the revenues collected could remain in the county and be used in accordance to their own plans, Sen. Brown said.Earlier, in his welcoming statement and overview presentation, GC Chairman, Cllr. A. Ndubuisi Nwabudike, described President George Weah as someone who is committed to letting the people have access to power at all levels.“The President is interested in seeing to it that the people have access to their own resources. The revenues they collect should therefore serve them directly to impact their lives,” Cllr. Nwabudike said.He added: “This is not the actual formula, but a proposal for the formula. The formula itself will be enacted by the legislature, because they will decide which county gets what percentage of the revenue collected.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

NO SERVICES WILL BE LOST AT LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL AFTER FLOODING

first_imgAll services provided by Letterkenny General Hospital prior to last month’s flooding disaster will be fully restored.That was the message from Deputy Joe McHugh following discussions at the hospital yesterday afternoon with Bill Maher, Chief Executive of HSE West.“I can confirm today that all services previously provided at Letterkenny General Hospital are to be restored as they were before last month’s flash flooding of the hospital. “This was confirmed to me at a meeting in the hospital yesterday with Mr Bill Maher, CEO of HSE West, and with Seán Murphy, Manager of Letterkenny General Hospital. It has also been confirmed that the planned new endoscopy unit, funding for which was announced in early July, will be put in place as intended prior to the flooding,” said the Fine Gael TD.Deputy McHugh at the hospital with Health Minister James ReillyThe Donegal Deputy said he is confident in the capabilities of hospital management, staff, patients and the community to overcome the enormous challenges that face us over the next nine months.“The task for Letterkenny General Hospital is to deliver high quality health services at a site that will be under refurbishment. This will involve unavoidable disruption for patients and staff, which must be minimised.“I know from speaking with people working in the hospital and from speaking with people in the community, that they do not want a rushed job. It is important that the refurbished building will be fit for purpose, and that last month’s disaster will never happen again. “This work is already underway with design, engineering and architectural teams being appointed. It is also encouraging that local sub-contractors are working on the construction of temporary accommodation for A&E services at the hospital, a number of whom I met at the hospital yesterday,” he added.The Carrigart-based politician also made the point very strongly that the people of Donegal want answers as to why the hospital flooded last month.He said there must be be full accountability and disclosure and that he awaits the independent engineer’s professional assessment.“I also raised public concerns about kitchen services at the hospital. HSE Management assures me that a new state-of-the-art kitchen will be fully constructed.“I am in continuous contact with the Minister for Health, Dr James Reilly TD, about the hospital. Minister Reilly has visited Letterkenny General Hospital twice since last month’s disaster, and he is monitoring the situation closely. “It is encouraging for the people of Donegal that existing services will be restored and secured, and that plans to roll out further additional services remain in place.”NO SERVICES WILL BE LOST AT LETTERKENNY HOSPITAL AFTER FLOODING was last modified: August 16th, 2013 by StephenShare 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:deputy joe mchughLetterkenny General Hospitallast_img read more

Killybegs Coast Guard honoured on ‘Late Late Show’

first_imgThis weekend’s ‘Late Late Show’ on RTÉ paid a special tribute to the brave members of the coastguard and RNLI who face treacherous conditions to help those in need.A panel of coastguard and RNLI volunteers were invited along to the ‘Late Late Show’, where they recounted situations they have faced while on duty. Shane McCrudden, the deputy officer of Killybegs Coast Guard station (pictured above) was in attendance, and told of the New Years Day rescue in 2013.Over thirty rescuers went to Slieve League to rescue a 28-year-old man who fell 400 feet down a cliff, including Killybegs Coast Guard, Arranmore RNLI, Donegal Mountain Rescue, local people, and members of Sligo/Leitrim Mountain Rescue.The rescue took twelve hours to complete.An airlift was not possible on that evening due to the weather, so rescuers had to carry climbing gear to the top of the cliff by hand. Two climbers abseiled down to retrieve the man, however when they reached 400 feet they realised that the man was 150 feet to the left of them, so they had to climb back up, re-set, and go down again.Shane said that “the locals are just as important as us” when it comes to a successful rescue.Shane said; “It was a massive multi-agency rescue, we’ve learned so much from it. There’s parts of it that we use.”“It’s a good outcome, except for the man having mild hypothermia, and being hungry! That was a good rescue for us.”Thankfully the man, who was originally from Carlow, made a full recovery; albeit feeling a bit hungry!“For me it’s an addiction. Being on call outs, giving back to the community, I love being in [the station], there’s administration work, the climbing aspect, boating operations, searching operations, there’s an endless amount of jobs there.” Also in attendance was Cationa Lucas’ husband Bernard.Catriona Lucas was the first member of the coastguard to lose her life during a rescue mission in County Clare in September 2016.In an emotional interview, he told of how it had been a very difficult Christmas, but that they have a great support network of friends and neighbours, and had received heartfelt letters from people around the country.Catriona’s son Ben said that “it hasn’t hit me yet, I haven’t realised the enormity of the situation, I’ve been in autopilot since September.” Heroically, just a couple of weeks after losing his wife, Bernard was back out with the coast guard.“It’s just what we do, it’s what Catriona did and loved.” He also said that he finds great comfort in it.He added that “you don’t realise how much it means to bring someone back.”To watch the full interview you can view it on the RTÉ player by clicking here.Killybegs Coast Guard honoured on ‘Late Late Show’ was last modified: January 15th, 2017 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:coast guardRNLIshane mccruddenlast_img read more

DONEGAL EDGED OUT BY DUBLIN IN CROKER LEAGUE CRACKER!

first_imgCormac Costelloe scores Dublin’s opening goal at Croke Park this evening.A pulsating National League encounter between Donegal and Dublin under the floodlights of Croke Park saw the men from the capital eventually pull away from their north-west rivals.In a game which had everything from sendings-off, black cards, goals as well as some tremendous football, no quarter was given by either side.If this was mundane league football, we’ll take it every weekend with the Dubs coming away winners on a final scoreline of 2-10 to 0-11. Donegal were put on the back foot early on despite taking the lead.Cormac Costlloe burst through on goal after a poor kick-out from Paul Durcan and blasted into the back of the Donegal net.An outstretched Durcan injured himself and had to be replaced by Michael Boyle.The Creeslough man did little wrong and could hardly have been blamed for Dublin’s second goal by sub Jack McCaffery late on. In between Donegal had matched Dublin in every department with Michael Murphy, Christy Toye, Patrick McBrearty and Neil Gallagher all putting in big shifts.Hits came in thick and fast throughout and at times it looked as if referee Deegan may lose control of the tie.Dean Rock was as accurate as ever for Dublin notching up five points with four of these coming from frees while newcomer John Small was named Man of the Match at centre-back for the Sky Blues.Dublin’s Kevin McManaman was sent for an early shower after a second yellow card early in the second half and it looked as if Donegal had been handed the advantage.Rory Gallagher sensed an opportunity and drafted in Colm McFadden in a bid to shore up more scores. But Gallagher’s side squandered six very kickable points from a collection of wides.With just two points between the sides, McCaffrey managed to split the Donegal defence and shoot into the roof of the net past Boyle.It was a killer blow for Donegal who were never going to pull five points back in what was a nip-and-tuck game throughout.Michael Murphy was shown a black card with three minutes left on the watch but at that stage it was incidental. Rory Gallagher should be pleased with his team’s overall effort but their accuracy in front of the posts will have to be worked on.There’s a lot of water still to pass under the bridge before the championship begins, but these are two teams who look capable of having another big say in where the Sam Maguire could be heading come September.DONEGAL EDGED OUT BY DUBLIN IN CROKER LEAGUE CRACKER! was last modified: February 8th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:Croke ParkdonegaldublinNational Leaguelast_img read more

Agency to buy land for wildlife

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Other parcels lie near Castaic Creek; near Ritter Ranch, a 7,200-home development in western Palmdale; and between Pearblossom and the national forest boundary. About half the parcels border the Angeles or other federal property. “It’s good open space and with tax defaulted land you get it at such a great price,” he said. Edelman said the deals are expected to close in late February. He was hesitant to talk about particulars before the sales are final. The county Board of Supervisors approved a deal last week that allows the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority, the conservancy’s acquisition and operations arm, to buy 24 parcels of various sizes for some $760,000. The bulk of the properties is in the North County – primarily in the San Gabriel and Sierra Pelona ranges, according to the county assessor’s office. The prices cover taxes owed – some since 1990 – as well as fines and administrative costs. A conservation agency will buy dozens of parcels of land in northern Los Angeles County where owners have failed to pay property taxes. The acreage is wilderness, mainly in the mountains surrounding the Santa Clarita and Antelope Valleys and will be preserved as open space, said Paul Edelman, deputy director of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, in charge of natural resources and planning. “There are a lot of parcels in that region,” Edelman said. “We’re trying to buy up land between Route 14 and Soledad Canyon Road to connect the two portions of the Angeles.” The gem is a wildlife corridor beneath the Antelope Valley Freeway (14) that will provide a path for mountain lions, badgers, bears, deer and smaller mammals to traverse the region between the two segments of the Angeles National Forest, Edelman said. The conservation authority is a public entity established in 1985. It works in partnership with the state conservancy to preserve and manage wilderness in the Los Angeles area, including parkland, open space, watershed land, trails and wildlife habitats.

Google’s New Big Data APIs a Big Gift to Startups?

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… The flood of news from Google I/O continues as the company has announced a pair of services available to developers that provide public access to some of Google’s internal data-analysis tools. BigQuery, a service for analyzing massively large sets of data, and Prediction API, an interface for utilizing Google’s prediction algorithms, are now available to developers in the Google Code Labs. To break down these heavy new tools, we spoke with former Apple engineer and big-data geek Pete Warden.Warden believes these new tools from Google could commoditize previously close-guarded technologies, allowing startups to quickly and easily leverage things like sentiment-analysis. “Assuming it does what it says on the label, this opens up a lot of technology problems to bootstrapped startups that previously required serious funding to tackle,” he told ReadWriteWeb. One of the advantages to BigQuery, which can analyze billions of lines of data from trillions of records in mere seconds, is that it is written in a simple SQL-like language. This makes BigQuery a “user-friendly way to harness the power of massively distributed computing,” much like the Hive interface to Hadoop, said Warden.“Both Hive and BigQuery are exciting because there’s millions of people who know SQL, though even a friendlier syntax doesn’t stop you from banging your head on the limitations of MapReduce,” he said.But Warden seems more interested in the new Prediction API, which “promises to open up a lot of Google’s proprietary algorithms to startups,” he said. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… chris cameron Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts “There’s a lot of meat in the list of examples they give, a lot of hard-to-solve problems that would previously have required an internal engineering team to tackle,” he said. “Imagine being able to get sentiment-analysis on all your customer emails at the touch of a button […] or integrating product recommendations into your small e-commerce site with almost no engineering effort.”With the new Latitude API announced earlier today, startups have a whole new slew of developer toys from Google with which to play. Warden says with the new BigQuery and Prediction API, Google is providing access to these services on a silver platter.“This is more than just Google opening up access to their infrastructure,” said Warden. “They’re offering something with intelligence about problem domains baked-in, which is much more valuable.” Tags:#start#tips last_img read more
