Blind School to Celebrate 37th Anniversary

first_imgThe Mango Town campus of the School for the Blind was over the weekend a scene of excitement and jubilation as the students and their teachers celebrated the school’s 37th anniversary in a grand style. The occasion, which was climaxed with playing football between the blind students and students from the nearby death school, was interestingly witnessed by a cross-section of the community dwellers. The Friday’s indoor ceremony was also attended by an array of government officials, who mainly came from the Ministries of Health and Social Welfare, and Education as well as representatives from institutions that are giving helping hands to the institution. The School for the Blind located in Mango Town, Virginia, outside Monrovia is run under the direct supervision of the Ministry of Education (MOE) in collaboration with authorities at the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOH/SW.) The institution was established on February 26, 1977 through a launch of a pilot project initiated by the MOE and MOH/SW in partnership with the Helen Keller International. Since that time, the school has been functioning under the motto: “With our Seeing Hands, We Shall Overcome.” Like any other institutions in Liberia, its fenced-in campus suffered the damaging effects of the country’s decade-long crisis, which left the authority and students spread out. This and other factors contributed to the delay in the celebration of its 37th anniversary until Friday, March 29, “because of several factors that included a lack of money to meet other expectations, but thanks to Providence for the intervention of authorities at the MOE that provided the needed amount of money for the successful holding of the program.Earlier in her keynote address on the theme, “Changing what it Means to be Blind,” the deputy Health Minister for Planning, Research and Development, Yah Mantor Zolia, challenged the students and their administrators to consider blindness as ordinary disability, which does not exclude those afflicted from achieving in life. Relating to the life of a little blind boy, Benjamin Underwood, to the students, Mrs. Zolia said that in the life of the boy, there were purposes. That was how she cautioned the students to follow Little Underwood example by being focus to go through the academic struggle and attain the level of education and skills in trade, “because anyone who suffered blindness is rehabilitated to take on the societal responsibilities at certain level of education.” According to her, despite being blind, Little Underwood was enabled to map a detailed psychological or metal plan of his surroundings; something she urged any of the students to also do, “because they too, like Little Underwood, can conquer the world of darkness by going through the rigor of education.” Another blind person who Mrs. Zolia urged the student to copy the example in life was Helen Keller–who was both blind and deaf. She told the students and their administrators that Helen overcame visually insurmountable (impossible) obstacles to live an extraordinary life.“Character cannot be developed in ease and quitetude, only through experience of trials and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved, Mrs. Zolia quoted one of her memorable phrases from one of Helen’s published books to the delight of the blind students.On that note, she admonished the students to redefine blindness through their respective individual attitude, the social support (education, training) and or daring vision where they would in turn, be valuable to the society.     Madam Zolia also challenged the visually impaired students not to reduce themselves by becoming street beggars, but to overcome their condition to pursue education to the fullest.“Do not depend on material support or handouts, but to seek education to realize your God-given potentials, because to have an insight without the necessary visual ability does not inspire anything in life,” Madam Zolia urged. For the Principal of the School, Jackson M. Suah, the event was put off until Friday, March 29, “because of hurtles that characterized the earlier planning stages.” He said that the pending activities included field day; an event that involved the visually impaired students playing football, kickball, running track and field, and other activities that involved using physical strength with other students in the community.Other activities that accompanied the just-ended celebration, according to Mr. Suah, included holding a lecture series with a focus on HIV/AIDS and preventable diseases–specifically those found in the tropics that are likely to affect the students.  Apart from holding the program, Mr. Suah disclosed that the school lacked basic equipment, such as teaching aides for the instructors, support staff, and students. Meanwhile, Mr. Suah has commended institutions like the American-based Links Incorporated, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), which is a subsidiary of the World Bank, the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL), and Super Petroleum for their continued support to the institution. While, he remains grateful to these entities for helping the school, Mr. Suah asked them to once again come to the aid of the administration on the occasion of its 37th anniversary by adding up to the ongoing rehabilitation works of the campus and the anniversary focus project–soon to get underway. To contribute to the pending anniversary project, the audience, mostly members of the high table raised the amount of US$120 in cash, while others made pledges that would make the project success. However, the ongoing rehabilitation works of the campus is funded by the government through the MOE.  While on a guided tour of facilities being renovated, Mr. Suah told reporters that facilities such like the annexes of the boys and girls dormitories, the classrooms and the administration building parts of the exercise.Meanwhile, Mr. Suah has launched a project to construct a new administration annex of the school to alleviate stockpiling of their books and other important instructional materials in non-spaced room.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Seven definitive reasons Cristiano Ronaldo is better than Lionel Messi

first_img 7 4. The better all-round athlete – There’s surely no disputing who the superior athlete is. Ronaldo’s incredible strength, jump height and raw speed simply cannot be matched by Messi. 7. The most European Golden Shoes – read all about Ronaldo’s goal scoring feats, below, then click the arrow above, right, to see six more reasons the Portugal superstar is better than Lionel Messi – The European Golden Shoe is awarded every season to the player who has recorded the highest goals tally out of all the European leagues. Ronaldo has won the award four times, including once for Manchester United, while Messi has clinched the honour three times. 7 6. The Champions League goal record – On club football’s biggest stage, who has produced the goods? Once again, it’s Ronaldo first, followed by Messi. Ronaldo currently has 93 Champions League goals in his career while Messi has 83. 7 5. The most given to charity – On top of all his footballing achievements, Ronaldo has been named the world’s most charitable sports star by dosomething.org. He even sold his 2011 European Golden Shoe award for €1.5m to fund schools in Gaza. 3. Ballons d’Or in two different countries – Messi (five) might have won more Ballons d’Or than Ronaldo (three), but the latter has claimed his World Player of the Year awards with teams from two different countries. The only other player to have achieved the same is the Brazilian Ronaldo, for Inter Milan and Real Madrid. 1. The international tournament – Portugal’s winning of the 2016 European Championship gives Ronaldo the edge over Lionel Messi on the international stage. The latter has lost one World Cup and three Copa America finals, while his rival has lost one Euro final and won one, too. 2. Trophies in two different countries – While Messi’s trophy haul is better than Ronaldo’s, Portugal’s star boasts two different league titles – in England and in Spain. He also conquered Europe with both Manchester United (in 2008) and Real Madrid (in 2014 and 2016). 7 7 Cristiano Ronaldo has done it. He’s clinched a trophy with his country, Portugal.And so the question resurfaces, once again – who’s better: Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi?The La Liga rivals have dominated the Ballon d’Or over the past six years, but Ronaldo now firmly has bragging rights after success with his country at this summer’s European Championship.His triumph, to rub it in even further, arrives only a few weeks after Messi announced his retirement from Argentina in the aftermath of their Copa America final defeat to Chile.Should the Barcelona forward remain loyal to his decision, his chances of lifting a trophy with his country are over.And so talkSPORT has put together seven reasons why Ronaldo should be considered the better player – check out our points by viewing the slideshow above.For great videos, head over to the talkSPORT YouTube channel here and subscribe free of charge! 7 7last_img read more

La Habra hot-rod builder makes teen’s wish come true

first_img The car — nicknamed “The Max Hemi” — will be sold at one of the world’s biggest auctions, the Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz. Proceeds will go to various charitable organizations, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation. When the Make-A-Wish Foundation contacted the Coddingtons about Max’s wish, they rushed to accommodate him. By June, Max and his father, Mitch, and sister Llana were on a plane to California. Despite Max’s debilitating treatments, he was able to fully participate in the car-building experience. “I’ve taken chemo for almost three years,” Max said. “It makes me so exhausted at times it’s hard to describe. I can’t even open my eyes, I feel really heavy and want to just lay in one spot and not move. I wasn’t too bad at Boyd’s, though.” Max’s father, Mitch Cohen, attributed his son’s good health while creating his hot rod to Coddington’s sensitivity. “It was an incredible experience for a kid like Max,” Cohen said. “Boyd was so in tune with what Max needed. He didn’t coddle him. These kids live in a world of needles, hospitals and doctors. But Boyd told him, you have a future, follow your dreams. I don’t think Max thought about his cancer for one minute.” Pam Wight can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029, or by e-mail at pam.wight@sgvn.com.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Coddington specializes in building customized hot rods by taking frames, bodies or parts from existing older-model cars and reconstructing a unique work. Many original parts are computer designed and fabricated on the shop’s site. American Hot Rod documents the entire breakdown and building process over the course of several episodes — a project that typically takes more than a year to complete. Max’s summer vacation timeline forced an even shorter construction time. “It was a pretty good feat,” said Coddington, 61. “We didn’t even know what kind of car he wanted and we only had eight weeks. Luckily he picked a car we were familiar with — a 1963 Dodge Polaris. It turned out real good.” The $200,000 tab for the car, parts and related expenses for Max’s wish were paid for by Coddington’s nonprofit organization, the Coddington Foundation, which he and his wife, Jo, created. The couple founded the organization in part to fund specifically a Make-A-Wish project. Jo had been asking the Make-A-Wish Foundation to find a child who wanted to go on the show. “No one’s going to pay $200,000 to order a car when they don’t know what it’s going to look like,” Jo said. “So we started the organization to help fund the building of the cars for the wish kids.” LA HABRA — At 17, Max Cohen has lived his dream — and, no doubt, the dream of many car-lovers. Legendary hot-rod builder Boyd Coddington recently invited Max to design and build a car from scratch on his popular cable television show, “American Hot Rod,” which aired last Monday, and will also appear today and again Oct. 17. It appears on the Discovery Channel Mondays at 8 a.m. The show is filmed at Coddington’s shop in La Habra. Max, who lives in Palatine, Ill., was diagnosed in 2003 with acute lymphocytic leukemia. When the Make-A-Wish Foundation called to grant him a wish, Max never hesitated about his choice. “It was the first thing that came to my mind,” Max said. “I watch American Hot Rod’ pretty much religiously. The whole experience was so unreal, from when they contacted me about the wish to meeting Boyd. I just thought I’d design a car, not actually build it, too. It was amazing.”last_img read more

KCCA FC ease past Proline to consolidate second spot

first_imgKCCA FC finish the first round in second position, four points behind Vipers SC. (PHOTO/ File)Uganda Premier League Proline FC 0-4 KCCA FC StarTimes Stadium, LugogoTuesday, 03-12-2019LUGOGO – KCCA FC ensured they end the first round on a high as they defeated Proline 4-0 on Saturday afternoon.Having won 7 of their past 9 league games, the Kasasiros were overwhelming favourites going into the encounter and comfortably saw off their Lugogo tenants in the end.Goals by Sam Ssenyonjo, Nicholas Kasozi and Allan Okello’s brace did the damage on the afternoon.KCCA start slow but win comfortably in the endKCCA FC have been looking more like the defending champions in the past few weeks as they chase down early pace setters Vipers SC.Since exiting the CAF Confederations cup last month, Mike Mutebi’s side have gone on to win five of their past 7 games.KCCA started slowly on Tuesday as they struggled to create openings.Ssenyonjo had a shot deflected out for a fruitless corner before seeing an overhead kick go wide.The youthful striker who had scored three goals coming into the game, then nearly forced Proline into an own goal as he put Yussuf Mukisa under pressure before the defender saw his goal-bound effort saved by goalkeeper Bashir Sekagya.KCCA’s best chance of the early openings fell to Samuel Kato but the center-back headed a Mustafa Kizza cross straight at Ssekagya.With halftime beckoning, they struck. After a goal mouth-scramble Ssekagya failed to deal with a Kizza cross before Musa Ramathan’s would-be shot found Ssenyonjo who bundled it over the line for 1-0.After a slow start to the second half, KCCA FC scored a second goal on 68 minutes as Ssekagya pushed Gift Ali’s corner onto the cross bar before it fell to Kasozi to head home.At this stage, Proline looked beaten and it was up to KCCA to score more.Musa Ramathan shot over from an Okello low cross before the latter scored KCCA’s third of the afternoon.With 12 minutes to play, Ssenyonjo set-up Okello who riffled in from just outside the area.After the third goal, the stadium went into a frenzy as long-term absentee Julius Poloto made his return to the pitch.Poloto who last played in March replaced Ssenyonjo in the 80th minutes and inside the additional time, he made impact as he played Okello through on goal to score KCCA FC’s fourth of the afternoon.For Proline, they came into the game in fairly good form as they had lost only one of their past six games.However, it was tough-day-out for them as they struggled at both ends.Edrisa Lubega was at the receiving end of two of their best chances on the day but could not capitalize.He first miscued an attempt after a defensive error by the visitors before seeing and overhead kick parried away by Lukwago late in the game.Rogers Matto also headed a Bright Anukani free kick straight at KCCA FC goalkeeper Charles Lukwago.In the second half, Hamis Diego Kizza blazed over a Kiwanuka cut-back.The result leaves Proline rooted at the foot of thw table with 9 points from 15 first round games while KCCA FC stay second and now have 32 points, four behind leaders Vipers.How both teams startedProline FCBashir Sekagya (GK), Mustafa Mujuzi, Ssendi Ibrahim, Yussuf Mukisa, Arnold Sserunjoji, Joseph Mandela, Bright Anukani, Hamis Diego Kizza, Edrisa Lubega, Hakim , Rogers MattoKCCA FCCharles Lukwago (GK), Musa Ramathan, Mustafa Kizza, John Revita, Samuel Kato, Gift Ali, John Kafumbe, Allan Okello, Nicholas Kasozi, Erisa Ssekisambu, Sam Ssenyonjo.Comments Tags: allan okelloJulius polotoKCCA FCnicholas kasoziproline fcSam SsenyonjoUganda Premier Leaguelast_img read more

Much can be learned by gathering at the table

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Nine months ago I started a journey with 18 strangers in a program through Ohio Farm Bureau called AgriPower. If you aren’t familiar with the program it is designed to empower farmers and ag professionals through intensive training of communication, advocacy and our diverse industry to become a powerful voice of agriculture.My AgriPower group came together with diverse agricultural backgrounds, but a shared passion for agriculture. Farm Bureau immersed us in a comfortable learning environment and gave us a BIG picture look at the ag industry and the tools we need to make vital and influential messages as political advocates, spokespeople and overall leaders.In our first session we were told to present a short speech on a topic of our choice. I chose a passionate topic for me — the kitchen table. I quoted Doris Christopher, the founder of The Pampered Chef. She states in her book “Come to The Table,” “Round or square, mahogany or oak the table is the heart of every home, the nucleus of domestic life.” The food is what gets us to the table providing the bread of life, but the table is the secret ingredient. In a lifetime, close to 18,000 meals are shared over a table. Around the table, celebrations, family deals, homework and wanted and unwanted advice is given and taken. Through shared meals, families and people are able to unplug, connect and share laughter creating priceless memories of a lifetime.Just like the family table, the AgriPower table brought together 19 strangers. Through a relaxed environment many discussions across the table (conference) were had, regarding GMO labeling, pesticide useage, CAUV and other hot button issues affecting agriculture today. Around the table, correct manners and other lessons improving our public speaking, policy making and political processes were learned.We enjoyed some fantastic food as well, including visits to Fogo de Chão, Filomenia. We shared over 35 meals as well as countless laughs, creating a bond that helped us establish a connection for years to come. Over the last meal we shared together, we listened to Jack Fisher charge us to get involved and to become the leaders of tomorrow. He talked about the book “Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action.” We came as strangers to the table and left as friends with an allegiance for life. Go lead, inspire and share your passion AgriPower VII. Stay in touch and I can’t wait to see the BIG things in store for us!Eat well and healthy!Shelly Here are some recipe favorites from my AgriPower friends. Poticia Dough Jeff Adams, Champaign CountyThis is an old family recipe, Pennsylvania Dutch via Slovenia.
