It means the Gunners are in the knock-out stages of the Champions League for the 16th year in a row.Now the bottom club in the Barclays Premier League entertains Arsenal, second in the table after returning to winning ways against Sunderland. The Gunners had gone three games without a win but responded by claiming their ninth victory of the season, the joint most wins along with Leicester City and Manchester City.By contrast, Aston Villa have just one win – the fewest in the Premier League. But in new manager Remi Garde they have a man familiar to Arsenal fans. The Frenchman spent three years at Arsenal, from 1996 to 1999, though in that time he made only 31 first-team appearances.Arsenal have scored 27 goals so far; only Everton (28), Manchester City (30) and Leicester City (32) have more. But they have also hit the woodwork 12 times, more than any other team in the Premier League. Villa, though, have just 13 goals, the joint lowest with Stoke City.last_img read more

100 Duplexes for Erosion Affected Residents of West Point

first_imgWest Point erosion victims were told yesterday that the National Housing Authority (NHA) will complete 100 duplexes for 100 families at their new location in Brewerville, outside Monrovia.During a meeting yesterday at the Monrovia City Hall, the residents selected a duplex per family head after Mr. Prince Wreh, NHA Deputy Managing Director for Administration (DMA), made a presentation of photos of houses that they were invited to select from.Wreh said the homes will be built on 50 acres by next July and because they are being built on land that belongs to the government, deeds for the homes will be held by the National Housing Authority (NHA) for a couple of years.“When you take over your house,” Wreh said, “you will not be allowed to build churches, mosques and markets in any place because you want to,” Wreh advised, adding that there will be plots allocated for building churches, mosques, markets, clinics, playgrounds, schools and other facilities.Earlier, NHA Managing Director Sam Wlue told the gathering that the Authority has secured US$1. 2 million to complete the project and reaffirmed that the new homes will be completed by next July, before the rainy season.“The NHA is having this interactive discussion with you so that you can make a contribution to what the government is doing for you,” Mr. Wlue said. He encouraged companies in the township to take advantage of procurement processes to benefit from the construction of the duplexes.Information Minister Len Eugene Nagbe told the gathering that West Point Township holds an important place in his heart, since he spent time there as a youth. He, however, encouraged those who claimed that they are unwilling to be resettled away from the township because of the time they have spent there to change their minds.“Society evolves and therefore we must learn to adapt to situations of such nature,” Minister Nagbe said. “We are faced daily with cases of erosion and therefore it is important that everyone works along with the government regarding the provision of these future homes in Brewerville,” he said in response to a resident who felt she could not resettle elsewhere because her family had been residing in the township for a long time.Nagbe said if past governments had initiated a similar resettlement, “We would not be talking about this situation today.” He admitted that since the 60s, Liberia has faced difficulties that made it challenging to get things done for the people.He appealed to Liberians, particularly those he described as ‘unreasonable critics,’ to be cognizant of the efforts being made by the current government to begin projects that will be completed by a future government.Nagbe called on Liberian critics to show a sense of appreciation and recognize President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s determination to ease problems facing the country. “It’s so easy to criticize, and we forget the good things when bad things happen,” he said.Instead of unnecessary criticisms, Liberians should be talking about how projects being initiated by the current government will be completed after the current administration is out of office.Monrovia City Mayor Clara Doe Mvogo told the gathering about President Sirleaf’s interest to provide adequate facilities for all Liberians, and called on the beneficiaries to work with the government and the National Housing Authority to get their homes completed on time.Earlier, Bishop George Harris, Chairman of the NHA Board of Directors, welcomed the participants and assured them that all is being done to provide them with decent homes in Brewerville.During the discussion, West Point residents expressed gratitude to the government and noted that there are many more residents who are affected by the erosion who also should be accommodated. They were told that conclusions reached during the meeting will form part of the agreement to work with in their interest. Some of the victims are presently housed in temporary zinc shelters in VOA, near Brewerville, the site of the new homes.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Thursday morning fever excites school

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 When MC Hammer music played on the loud speakers overhead, some classroom teachers broke out with their old moves. “It ties in with physical fitness,” third-grade teacher Emily Shaffer said about the fast-moving assembly. Pupils at Sulphur Springs are used to exercising with their teachers, who instruct physical-education classes once a week. The PTA also pays for a physical-education teacher to lead classes in softball, soccer and other gym activities four times a week. Kids at the school also get a workout by running on the track each day for five to 10 minutes. They earn points for the miles they’ve covered, Shaffer said. CANYON COUNTRY – With Bee Gees music playing overhead, third-grader Adam Weideman, like a miniature John Travolta, raised his index finger into the air and started to disco. The 9-year-old was joined by others learning generations of dancing styles, from the mamba to the macarena, during an hourlong assembly Thursday at Sulphur Springs School. “You guys just don’t walk; you have to strut,” said Christy Lane, the dance teacher from Palm Springs who led the assembly. Holding up poodle skirts, polyester shirts and other fashions of past eras, Lane showed the kids what they’d be wearing if they could step back in time to parties. Then she blasted some tunes, and the kids rehearsed their steps. Lane, who travels nationwide teaching dance, said sometimes she has to offer breaks during the assemblies, because kids are tired out from the lively exercise and need to sit down. But Lane commended the group Thursday for learning to hustle and limbo with ease. She said it shows that, unlike many children, they stay physically active and fit. “Stay fit because when you get older, you’ll feel good all the time,” she said.

Suspect surrenders, declares innocence

first_imgPICO RIVERA — As Deanne Ariza waited in a sheriff’s station lobby Thursday, her thoughts were on her 5-year-old son, the two years she spent in jail for drug possession, and exactly what she would tell detectives about the murder they claim she took part in. “I just want to clear my name,” she said. “I just want to get it over with. I don’t have nothing to hide. I don’t want to go back to jail.” Ariza’s mother, Diana, and her sister, Janine, waited with her, worried that detectives would want Deanne to confess, afraid that gang members might retaliate if Ariza said too much. “They told me that she just has to come in and say she doesn’t know anything, and that’s it,” Diana Ariza said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week But after interviewing Ariza, homicide detectives booked her on suspicion of murder Thursday afternoon. About an hour before Ariza turned herself in to detectives at the Sheriff’s Department’s Pico Rivera Station, her family had contacted a reporter and photographer, asking them to accompany her. Ariza, who lives in Santa Fe Springs, said she wanted to get her side of the story out about what she saw — or didn’t see — in the early morning of Aug. 25 at a 7-Eleven store in Pico Rivera, where 30-year-old Aron Adagio of Downey was gunned down. Ariza said she had only one thing to tell detectives: She didn’t see anything. “We went to get beer,” she told the reporter. “I went back in to get another soda and heard a gunshot. I don’t know what happened.” Homicide detectives had been looking for Ariza and two other people wanted as suspects in connection with Adagio’s killing outside the convenience store. According to detectives, Ariza, Michael Jaimez, also of Santa Fe Springs, and Michael Salinas of Azusa drove to the 7-Eleven in the 9300 block of Slauson Avenue in Ariza’s mother’s white Chevrolet Blazer. After buying a case of Budweiser beer, detectives allege, either Jaimez or Salinas shot Adagio, a videographer and sales representative who had stopped by the store to buy beer. On Wednesday, armed with a search warrant, detectives arrested Salinas, 20, whom they described as a gang member. Investigators were still looking for 25-year-old Jaimez, who also is a gang member, according to deputies. They searched Ariza’s mother’s home Wednesday, but didn’t find Ariza. They then left a message with her mother, asking Deanne to turn herself in. Before she did so, Ariza took care of a few things. She went first to her grandmother’s house in Santa Fe Springs, where her grandmother cooked her some breakfast. Then Ariza, who said she has been living out of her car for years, took a shower and changed clothes. Janine then drove Ariza to Rancho Santa Gertrudes School, where she saw her son before going to the station. Jim Burgum, the boyfriend of Aron Adagio’s mother, was ecstatic to hear that arrests had been made in the case. “For Aron, it was just being at the wrong place at the wrong time,” Burgum said. “His mother’s not taking his death very well. She’s devastated. Aron was her life and joy.” Ariza’s family was shocked at her arrest. They said that Ariza did not know anything about the murder. Ariza told the reporter she had no knowledge of what her friends did the morning of the shooting. She said she never saw the victim. She did not even know whether friends had a gun, she said. Ariza was being held at the Pico Rivera Station jail. She is scheduled to be arraigned in Whittier Court on Monday. Afterward, she’ll be moved to Twin Towers Correctional Facility, detectives said. Ariza said that her life had been like a nightmare since her picture was printed in the newspaper after the murder. “I didn’t see anything,” Ariza said. “I just closed my eyes. But even if I was an eye witness and said so, I could be dead tomorrow.” — Sandy Mazza may be reached by calling (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026, or by e-mail at sandy.mazza@sgvn.com.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Record overcrowding at LUH as national crisis continues

first_imgOvercrowding levels at Letterkenny University Hospital have reached the highest level since records began in 2006.3054 people have had to wait on trolleys and overflow wards for admission to LUH in the first eight months of 2017, according to the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO).This figure has multiplied from 835 patients on trolleys in the same time last year. In August 2017 there were 241 patients on trolleys in Emergency Departments or wards at LUH, which is almost twice as many as last year’s figure of 128.Across Ireland, the INMO say that 65,455 people were admitted for care on trolleys but had no bed in first 8 months of 2017, up 7% on 2016. This is a 90% increase on 10 years ago in 2007.The organisation has warned of a growing crisis in the health sector and said it should be treated as a national emergency ahead of the winter months.The figures confirm that the level of hospital overcrowding remains at a record high with a 27% increase in August 2017 (7,781) compared to August 2016 (6,136). The national Emergency Department Implementation Group is due to meet today (Monday). The INMO will be seeking implementation of all emergency measures identified in their taskforce report launched in 2015.INMO General Secretary, Liam Doran speaking this morning said:“There is no doubt that the level of attention required to manage trolley overcrowding has dropped in recent months.  The abnormal, and very harmful and detrimental, effects, of overcrowding, are no longer viewed as requiring urgent action as the HSE focuses on measuring and counting the problem rather than addressing it.“It is clear that setting of targets, whether they be for patients over 75, patients waiting to be seen or patients waiting for a decision to admit/discharge has not had any positive effect upon the management of the overcrowding crisis.“The monitoring and reporting of the  targets has now become the priority for management rather than the actions necessary to protect patients and frontline staff.” Mr Doran concluded:  “In the context of successive months, with record levels of overcrowding, serious concerns should be apparent, to all parties attending today’s meeting, as we enter the autumn/winter period.“Management, at all levels, must implement the actions detailed in the taskforce report, on a 24/7 basis and treat this crisis as a national emergency.”Record overcrowding at LUH as national crisis continues was last modified: September 4th, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:Letterkenny University Hospitallast_img read more
