Produce Sellers Suffer Hike in Transport Fares

first_imgLocally grown produce sellers based in several rural parts of the country have urgently appealed to the Ministries of Commerce, Industry and Transport to intervene in the current hike in transport fares.In several encounters and interviews with the rural small businesspeople mainly women, they pointed out that majority of their profit margins from harvested produce ends up in the pockets of commercial drivers.For the past 15 years, rural locally grown produce sellers have complained on many occasions about the drastic hike in transport fares across the country.They complain that their cries and appeals have only been addressed with empty promises by Ministries of Commerce, Industry and Transport officials.Regrettably, sugar-coated assurances have come from the mouths of many government officials evading the hard socio-economic conditions of small rural businesspeople.Promises of help have not been translated into practical and realistic measures that could address the unending transport related challenges of the small rural businesspeople in the country.Meanwhile a majority of the urban markets greatly depend on rural locally produce sellers for the conveyance of critically needed commodities that would in turn balance the diets of urban dwellers.According to transport and commerce analysts, policies geared towards addressing the decades old transportation problems must be practical and reflect the realities on the ground in all parts of the country and the challenges faced by small rural businesspeople over the years in the country.“Our sentiments, calls, cries and appeals have fallen on deaf ears and dumped in the dust bin of history by the relevant agencies of past and present Liberian governments,” a disenchanted woman charged.Rural peanut producer Hawa Ballah Kollie, 45, told the Daily Observer over the weekend that she has not able to make any decent profit due to the high cost of transportation and other unbearable circumstances.Madam Kollie who brought to the Red-light Market over the weekend 12 bags of peanuts pointed out that she spent a huge amount of money to transport the harvested produce to Monrovia.“I’m currently doing business at a considerable loss owing to the hike in transport fares from Bong County to the urban markets of Monrovia,” Madam Kollie lamented.Cassava grower Betty B. Tokpa, 39, said that almost all of the sales of her cassava produce landed in the pockets of commercial drivers as a result of the hike in transport fares in many parts of the country.“I’m only working for the commercial drivers and other public service providers, hence something practical must be put in place by the Ministries of Commerce, Industry and Transport,” Madam Tokpa stressed.A cucumber and bitter ball grower, Youngor B. Mulbah, 55, of Margibi County intimated that on many occasions the harvested produce gets rotten owing to the scarcity of transport vehicles and hike in transport fares.“I want the Liberian government ministries responsible to decentralize their official functions in several parts of the country in order to monitor the transport fares throughout the country,” Madam Mulbah emphasized.  Relax State of EmergencyIn related developments, some of the affected rural business women have sounded an urgent call on the Liberian Government to consider relaxing the State of Emergency in the country.The women explained that the State of Emergency has placed so many restrictions on the movement of critically needed locally grown and produced commodities in the country.“Consider our plight now and relax the State of Emergency so that we can be able to work, produce and supply the urban markets with the needed commodities,” the women urged.

Man Utd in trouble and could lose Pogba, says Deschamps

first_img0Shares0000“Dream on,” France coach Didier Deschamps tells Juventus fans of signing Paul Pogba. © AFP / FRANCK FIFEMILAN, Italy, Oct 10 – Manchester United are in trouble and fans of Italian champions Juventus are right to dream of signing Paul Pogba, France’s World Cup-winning coach Didier Deschamps said on Wednesday.“All of Manchester United are in trouble. Pogba is still the same and is one of the best midfielders in the world,” Deschamps told Italian newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport of the tensions between Pogba and United boss Jose Mourinho. “However, I’ll never comment on relationships between players and coaches.”Pogba has been linked with a return to Juventus, whom he joined for free in 2012 after walking out of United after the club failed to tie him to a new contract.He then returned to United in 2016 on a five-year contract for a then-record transfer fee of 105m euros (£89.3 million).Deschamps suggested the prospect of Pogba once again quitting United for Juventus was not so far-fetched.“Dreams are a part of life,” he added. “Maybe the fans hadn’t dreamed of Cristiano Ronaldo, who ended up signing.“Sometimes dreams come true, but compared to a few years ago it would cost Juve a lot more to buy Pogba now.”Deschamps managed Juventus in the mid-2000s after the club were demoted from Serie A amid a match-fixing scandal, having played for five years with the club until 1999.“Today’s Juve is as strong the one with which I won the Champions League in 1996,” said the 49-year-old of the Italian champions’ last European triumph.“The difference is also down to details. This Juventus has the means to be among the favourites.“Cristiano Ronaldo makes Champions League victory almost obligatory.“With him, Juventus have guaranteed a player who can be decisive in important moments. He is a great professional,” Deschamps said.“Serie A is an important league anyway, even if the Premier League is ahead because of the superior financial means.“The arrival of Ronaldo guarantees greater exposure for the league abroad, a bit like Neymar in Ligue 1.“Of course people talked about Juventus before, but it’s clear that the marketing effect of a champion like CR7 (Ronaldo) allows you to reach every corner of the globe.”Deschamps, meanwhile, said he was happy coaching France but believes former France and Juventus teammate Zinedine Zidane could return to Italy having left Real Madrid last summer.“That position is already occupied by a great coach like (Massimilano) Allegri, who is doing a great job,” said Deschamps.“Maybe Zidane, with his Bianconero past like mine, will have his chance. We’ll see.”0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Gomes suffers horror injury, ‘devastated’ Son sees red as Everton deny Tottenham

first_img0Shares0000Everton players comfort teammate André Gomes (on the floor) after suffering a serious injury against Tottenham © AFP / Oli SCARFFLiverpool, United Kingdom, Nov 3 – Cenk Tosun’s header eight minutes into stoppage time salvaged a 1-1 draw for Everton against Tottenham in a match overshadowed by a serious leg injury to Everton midfielder Andre Gomes.Spurs’ Son Heung-min was shown a straight red card for his foul on the Portuguese international, but the injury was suffered as Gomes’s momentum saw him crash into Serge Aurier. “It is a bad moment for us as a group and as a team. It’s more than a football game, this is the most important thing right now,” said Everton manager Marco Silva.Tottenham led 1-0 at that stage thanks to Dele Alli’s strike just after the hour mark.The injury to Gomes proved a turning point with Son visibly upset even before he was shown a red card.“He (Son) is devastated and in tears,” said Alli. “It’s not his fault. Son is one of nicest people you’ve ever met. He can’t even lift his head up, he’s crying so much.”Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said his club had the utmost sympathy for Gomes.“We feel very sorry,” he said. “Was a really bad situation, very bad luck how he landed in the action.“We can only send our best wishes and (we are) devastated for the situation.”However, Pochettino believed the red card shown to Son was harsh, particularly as referee Martin Atkinson had first produced a yellow card prior to seeing Gomes’s injury.“I cannot agree with the red card of Sonny,” added Pochettino.“VAR must help the referee, I don’t know what is going on and what happens with this tool. Rather than help the referee it is creating more confusion.”Both managers were left frustrated at the use of VAR as both sides saw a strong penalty claim turned down in the second half despite a lengthy delay to review the incidents.First Tottenham were denied as Son was upended by Yerry Mina with the score at 0-0 and then, after Alli opened the scoring, the England midfielder escaped unpunished from a handball inside his own box.“I think the referee needs to go to the screen and check like in other leagues. It’s the referee that needs to take the decision not the VAR from I don’t know where,” said Pochettino.A point does little to improve a poor start to the season for either side with Everton still hovering just one place above the relegation zone, while Spurs remain in the bottom half in 11th with 13 points from their first 11 games.Tottenham hit the Toffees for six on their last visit to Goodison Park last December, but their fall off in form over the past year was in evidence in a dismal first 45 minutes in which neither side threatened to open the scoring.Spurs badly missed the absent Harry Kane through illness, but were gifted the opener when Alex Iwobi handed possession to Son and the South Korean fed Alli to fire past England international teammate Jordan Pickford.Son Heung-min was left shocked by the state of Andre Gomes’s injury © AFP / Oli SCARFFSon’s joy soon turned to anguish when he slid on Gomes 12 minutes from time as he had to be consoled by players from both sides when he saw the extent of Gomes’s injury.Everton still struggled to make their man advantage count in what proved to be the final 24 minutes with 12 minutes added due to the VAR reviews and medical attention for Gomes.But Tosun was in the right place to power home an equaliser and deny Tottenham a first away win in the Premier League since January.0Shares0000(Visited 44 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Broncos are new Super favorites

first_imgDENVER — Meet the new favorites to win the Super Bowl: the Denver Broncos. After putting in an impressive performance to knock out New England, the Broncos sat home Sunday and watched Pittsburgh upset Indianapolis, the previous odds-on favorite to win it all. Now, the Broncos get a home game next Sunday against the Steelers in the AFC title game, where they’ve been established as a 4-point pick. And on Sunday afternoon, Vegas oddsmakers said Denver would be favored in the Super Bowl against either of the NFC teams — Seattle or Carolina — still in the hunt. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita “The Broncos have been flying under the radar the whole season, with the likes of the Colts out there, but now, they’re looking better,” said Jay Kornegay, who runs the sports book at the Las Vegas Hilton. The numbers: Denver is now the 3-to-2 favorite to win the Super Bowl. Seattle and Pittsburgh were both 5-to-2 and Carolina was 6-to-1. Kornegay said if the Broncos win next week and play the Seahawks in the Super Bowl, they’d probably start as a 3“- or 4-point favorite. If they played the Panthers, they’d be favored by about 5“ points and if they played the Bears, the number would be 9 or 10. “The NFC is definitely, I believe, a couple notches below the AFC,” Kornegay said. As ticket-buying fans lined up outside Invesco Field on Sunday, suddenly Denver’s season could be seen in a completely new light. center_img Sure, the 13-3 record, the first division title, first home playoff game and even the first playoff win in seven seasons were turning the 2005 season into something special. But with Indianapolis looming — the team that had beaten Denver by a combined score of 90-34 in the last two postseasons — there was a sense the season was destined to end a week short of the ultimate destination. Now, the Broncos have more reason to believe they could go all the way, win their third championship since 1997 and — yes — match the New England “dynasty” for the most titles over the past decade. The Broncos weren’t available for interviews Sunday, although after their 27-13 victory over the Patriots, a few were very candid about who they wanted to play next. “I’ve got to get the Terrible Towels out to root for the Steelers so we can play at home,” receiver Rod Smith said. “Nothing against the Colts, but I just want to play at home.” It made a difference all night Saturday, as the Patriots got flagged for four false-start penalties and Tom Brady had trouble changing plays at the line of scrimmage. The result: five New England turnovers that resulted in 17 Denver points. The biggest was Champ Bailey’s 100-yard interception return that took the Patriots out of scoring range and set up a touchdown to make it 17-6 in the third quarter. Through it all, Invesco Field rocked like it hadn’t in the five years since it opened. Many around Denver, including none other than John Elway, complained that the new stadium was too comfortable and too full of cushy creature comforts to be as noisy as it needed to be. Now, however, none of the Broncos are complaining about playing there. They’ll be back home next weekend, as the favorite to win the Super Bowl. “To be honest, I was a little upset last year” with the crowd, safety John Lynch said. “It was kind of a downer. But I think we just changed the course of Invesco Field being a wine-and-cheese crowd. That was something special, a lot of fun.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

DD Fitness: Rebuilding your core after childbirth

first_imgThis week Donegal Daily’s fitness columnist Emmet Rushe, owner and operator of Rushe Fitness, talks about how you can rebuild your core and pelvic floor after giving birth! This weekend, I will be talking at the North West’s Premier baby fayre, ‘Bump and Beyond’. My talk will be on exercise post-pregnancy and I’ll be talking about rebuilding the core and pelvic floor again after childbirth.My wife had 2 C-sections with our daughters and wasn’t given any advice on proper training for the abdominal area. The only thing she was told repeatedly was “Keep doing your kegels.” While this is true, it’s not enough. It seems to be a case of “Congratulations. Be careful now. You have just had surgery.”Let’s face it, if you had any other major operation in the abdominal region, you wouldn’t be allowed to pick up a cup for 4-6 weeks.You do not get this luxury however after giving birth. The abdominal area and the pelvic floor are extremely important.Every woman wants them functioning properly after childbirth, but this is the area that is often the most difficult to regain control over. The golden rule for exercise after any type of birth is to wait until after your 6 week check up with your doctor.After that, the focus of your training should be on getting stronger and rebuilding the areas that were weakened during pregnancy.Yes, weight loss is another goal to have, but it should not take precedence over getting yourself strong and healthy again.Strength training should be your main focus after childbirth.Using the right exercises will help strengthen your back and core is extremely important considering you will be lifting a baby that will get progressively heavier over the coming weeks. You can use your own body weight, resistance bands, dumbbells, kettlebells, barbells depending on what you have at home, or what is available in your gym.Home workouts may suit better at the start, as time is a luxury we don’t always have when we have a new baby in the house.You can use anything in the 5-15 rep range for 2-3 sets and you should use proper form through all exercises.So, if you were doing a squat for example, you would do 10 reps, take a short rest and repeat for 2-3 sets. You can train the full body in each session, but you should have a focus on the posterior chain.This involves the glutes (butt), hamstrings, and upper back muscles.You have had all that extra weight on the front side of your body throughout your pregnancy and it can have an adverse effect on your lower back and your posture.Exercises like Sumo Deadlifts, squats, reverse lunges, glute bridges, hip thrusts, rows, and pulling exercises for the upper pack should be your main focus.They will help to strengthen the back and may prevent back pain!When it comes to the core, the training you should be doing isn’t what you think. Sit-ups are the last thing that you should do when trying to rebuild the core again.Exercises like the ones listed below would be more suitable to what you need rather than sit ups.• DEAD BUGS.• SIDE PLANKS• FRONT PLANKS (DEPENDING ON DIASTASIS RECTI)• FARMER’S WALKS• PALLOF PRESSESRemember that the aim is to rebuild the area first, this should come before any thoughts of abs.If Diastasis Recti is an issue, these 2 exercises below are a good way to start with some core training to help with this issue. I got these from Jessie Mundell, a post pregnancy training expert.• HEEL SLIDES• GLUTE BRIDGE• 8-15 REPS, 1-2 SETS, 3-7 DAYS PER WEEK.Problems with the pelvic floor can go on for years after childbirth if it is not strengthened properly. Kegels (pelvic floor contractions) should be done daily. Try and get in the habit of doing 1 or 2 sets of 10 repetitions when you can.You can also progress these into your strength work, for example on the upward movement of a squat you can draw the pelvic floor up on each rep.If you have problems with your pelvic floor, there are certain exercises that you may want to avoid.Try to avoid jumping jacks, running, squat jumps and box jumps until your pelvic floor is rock solid and this could be many months postpartum, depending on your recovery.Some women are capable of resuming physical activities within days of delivery depending if they were physically active before and during pregnancy.In the absence of medical or surgical complications, rapid resumption of these activities has not been found to result in adverse effects.Regular aerobic exercise in lactating women has been shown to improve maternal cardiovascular fitness without affecting milk production, or infant growth.Nursing women should consider feeding their infants before exercising in order to avoid exercise discomfort.Nursing women also should ensure adequate hydration before commencing physical activity.If you are short on time, or have pelvic floor issues and you would like to get your strength and cardio training in, short mini circuits are a simple way to get them done.This another great one from Jessie Mundell.10 reps each exercise on each side if applicable, 2-5 sets.• 1a) Kb sumo deadlift• 1b) TRX Rows• 1c) Reverse lunges• 1d) 1/2 kneeling banded chest pressWhenever you choose to start back training again postpartum the most important consideration is starting slow and being safe.If you have exercised before, consider your current fitness level. Do you have any injuries? Do you have any illnesses? Always consult your doctor.If you would like more information on training before, during or after pregnancy, check out this great resource here.You can find out more about Jessie at http://jessiemundell.com/#TrainSmartIf you are looking for a way to train from home and use techniques like above to help with your weight loss, I have launched my Little Black Dress Challenge program.Want to take on the Little Black Dress Challenge?
