I am willing to teach them what I know and give them advice if they need it,” he said.David also likened this run with Bataan to that of Gilas Pilipinas as he compared the sense of pride of the players in defending their respective home turfs.“This is more about pride. Here, we don’t talk about how big your salary is. What we’re fighting here is the pride that you carry the name of your hometown.

‘We Knew Duncan Would Die’

first_imgNews of the death of Ebola victim in the United States, Liberian Thomas Eric Duncan, did not surprise a cross section of Liberians interviewed by the Daily Observer yesterday.“I knew he was not going to make it,” said a money changer on Benson Street, minutes after Texas Presbyterian Health officials announced his death.“Consider his situation,” the man who chose not to give his name, said. “There are at least four Americans who also got the virus, and why are they not dead?” he asked.A young Liberian female university student, 20, said, “The wicked manner that Duncan went to America, aware that he had come in contact with an Ebola patient convinced me that he would not survive his ordeal.” “Oh, did you people at the Observer ever think he was going to survive?” She answered her own rhetorical question. “I knew he would not have made it.”Others interviewed drew attention to Dr. Kent Brantly, the American doctor who got infested here in Liberia with Ebola, but was treated in a US hospital and is now free from the disease.“He is an American,” the taxi driver said, “and so they took care of him.”A mother of three on Carey Street in Monrovia also reminded the Daily Observer  of Dr. Rick Sarca, another American, who got infested while in Liberia.“Is he dead?” she posed the question to the Daily Observer.Like the two American doctors, another American, Nurse Nancy Writebol, also survived after being treated at a US hospital.Many other Liberians made mention of NBC Cameraman Ashoka Mukpo, who recently got infested and was rushed to the United States.Cameraman Mukpo has received blood donation from Dr. Kent Brantly and doctors in the United States are waiting to administer transfusion to save his life.“Why Duncan did not receive such an important gift that could have saved his life?” asked another Liberian, who said he is a student at the University of Liberia.When many of those interviewed were reminded that the Americans had begun administering a drug approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration, FDA, on Ebola victim Duncan, they still responded that the Americans “pretended they were doing their best for him.”“They knew that the drug would not have saved Duncan’s life,” said another.  “Why are they not using the same drug on other Americans?”Many commented that the United States is a country that takes care of its own and took the Liberian government to task for its inability to care for its citizens just as Americans do for their own.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Candidates sprint to finish line

Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LOS ANGELES — With millions of Californians still undecided about whether to vote for Controller Steve Westly or Treasurer Phil Angelides to take on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in November, the Democratic candidates planned to campaign furiously Tuesday as the polls opened. Angelides planned two Election-Day stops in San Francisco to shake hands with morning commuters before sprinting to Sacramento to cast his vote. Westly planned to vote early and then circle the San Francisco Bay Area, stopping at stores, and a senior center before flying to Los Angeles. Whether the last minute pushes would make any difference was unclear. Turnout Tuesday was expected to be light, and many voters said they still had trouble distinguishing the candidates despite $70 million spent on campaigning. Polls showed Westly and Angelides in a statistical dead heat leading up to Election Day. The two were so close that officials warned a problem with voting machines in one heavily Democratic San Francisco Bay area county might prevent them from naming a winner until Wednesday. Another close race in the state was shaping up to be a bellwether for Republicans nationwide. Ongoing investigations and political scandals have turned the San Diego area race to replace disgraced Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham into a mini-referendum on the Republican Party and approaches to illegal immigration. Polls showed Republican Brian Bilbray and Democrat Francine Busby were running neck-and-neck in the historically right-leaning 50th Congressional District. The two sides have spent a combined $10.5 million campaigning, seeking to serve out the remaining seven months of Cunningham’s term and get a boost for the November election. Cunningham resigned from Congress and was sentenced to more than eight years in prison for taking bribes. Bilbray has attacked Busby, depicting her as an advocate for amnesty for illegal immigrants. The Republican has faced problems of his own trying to shake Democratic ads linking him to corruption. He has also wrestled with a Republican base that has fractured over how to address illegal immigration. Adding intrigue to Tuesday’s vote was the fate of Proposition 82, the measure backed by Hollywood director Rob Reiner that would tax the rich to pay for universal preschool. Until late last week the measure held a slight advantage. On Saturday, however, polls showed voters may be turning away from the idea. Voters must also decide on a handful of familiar names running to keep their political careers alive. One of the most well-known candidates campaigning to return to the state capital was Oakland mayor and former governor Jerry Brown. Brown was running for the attorney general against Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo.last_img read more

LIFFORD AC TRACK MOVES CLOSER TO OLYMPIC STANDARD DREAM

first_imgThe Lifford track is certainly taking shapeLifford Athletic Club’s Olympic standard track took a big step closer to completion this week with the arrival of Mondo’s track lining team.With the main track laid during 2012, the high jump area was newly laid during the week with the line marking team arriving Thursday.Lifford AC’s Brendan O’Donnell spoke of his delight at the latest developments. “The development of the new track has been a nine year project at this stage, but this week sees a huge step forward towards its final completion. Irish international athlete David McCarthy pictured with Lifford AC club members at the clubs new Olympic standard track last week.“The old saying goes that the best things come to those who wait and while there have been may ups and downs, the end product is nearly in sight. An Olympic standard track with full IAAF accreditation is a brilliant new addition not just to Lifford but to the whole of the North West”.With this exact same surface being showcased at the 2012 London Olympics where fast times were the order of the day, the development of such a facility in Donegal will help to showcase athletics in the North West.The sheltered setting of the Lifford grounds, coupled with an Olympic standard surface will ensure fast times are recorded when the track opens up fully in a few months time. At the recent Donegal Track and Field Championships held at the venue, Letterkenny AC’s Ruairi Finnegan achieved a European Junior standard in the 1500m. Just last week, West Waterford AC’s David McCarthy was in town to get some training in on the new Mondo track in preparation for this weekends European Team Championships.The Irish international will go in the 3000m at Santry this weekend, and was very impressed with the quality of the new track and affirmed his commitment to be back in the near future. Weather permitting, the track lining is expected to be completed next week.LIFFORD AC TRACK MOVES CLOSER TO OLYMPIC STANDARD DREAM was last modified: June 20th, 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:LIfford ACtracklast_img read more
