Gbedin Farmers, the Luckiest of All

first_imgUnlike many of their counterparts in other areas of the country, especially Lofa and Grand Cape Mount counties, members of the Dokodan Farmers’ Cooperative (DFC) in Gbedin, Nimba will not just have a reason to smile, but with excitement and fulfillment as well as financial rewards after months of hard labor.The West Africa Agriculture Productivity Project (WAAPP) has assured DFC that the 250 metric tons of seed rice they have produced will be purchased. The Coordinator of WAAPP, Cyrus Sargbe, said the Project is ready to purchase the rice for distribution to farmers in other parts of the country for planting.Sargbe made the disclosure on Tuesday when a team of World Bank and WECARD officials who are visiting the country paid a one day visit to Gbedin to assess the level of work being done there. The Gbedin project is known as the Certified Seed Multiplication Project that is being sponsored by the World Bank. Members of the visiting team were the program manager of CORAF/WECARD Dr. Nieyidou Lamien, and the World Bank consultant based in Abidjan, Joseph NkahThe Gbedin Certified Seed Multiplication project falls under the government of Liberia and the World Bank post Ebola seed intervention intended to help farmers in the country after the devastating effects of the deadly virus that affected every sector of the Liberian society. It is being implemented by WAAPP through Africa Rice and CARI with the DFC. The variety of seed being produced is known as Nerica L-19 and was grown on a 164 hectare of lowland in Gbedin. Members of the visiting team interacting with the farmers asked them about the challenges they face and what prospects they have for the future. The farmers responded that the major challenge they face is finding markets or buyers for their produce. They also emphasized the need for farming equipment to improve their work.The DFC members said that although the rice has been produced many of them are currently in financial crisis and seeking means to settle their debts, but there is no way out. They however appealed for help to find buyers for their produce.Dr. Nkah then asked the WAAPP Coordinator whether he was prepared to assist the farmers. Mr. Sargbe responded, “We will buy all of the rice because we need to distribute it to other farmers across the country for planting. We already told them that and they are aware. It is just that these arrangements require some formalities after which all the rice will be purchased and distributed across the country.” This, he said, will be done in collaboration with one of the partners, Africa Rice, that works directly with the farmers as one of WAAPP’s project implementing partners in the country.Sargbe however called on the farmers to ensure that all of the rice is properly bagged within two weeks so that it can be picked up and transported to the Liberia Produce and Marketing Company (LPMC) warehouses in Gbarnga, Bong County.DFC president, Jefferson N. Tokpah, welcomed the news, which he termed as a relief for him and his colleagues and lauded WAAPP and its partners for their continued support to the farmers.“First of all I want to be thankful to the government, the World Bank, Africa Rice and CARI for the level of support that is being given us,” he said.Providing a backing ground about the project, Tokpah said, “In 2015 Africa Rice came to us and told us that they wanted us to produce foundation seed and we agreed because we have been in that business before.”He indicated that DFC successfully cultivated 164 hectares, “and as I speak to you we have not less than 250 metric tons of foundation seed in our warehouse as you can see. “We will turn the rice over to our partners because we produce the rice and give it to them to find the market for us. They bring buyers to purchase our produce. This rice will be distributed to our fellow farmers in other counties for planting,” he explained.“The rice you see in stock now has not been paid for and there are 197 farmers who produced this rice, so we need money so that they too, can attend to their domestic obligations, especially their children’s schooling and welfare,”He noted that Nerica L-19 is unique because it is a variety that takes only ninety days duration (3 months) to be harvested, meaning that it could be planted three times in a given year. This makes it more economical, especially for farmers when it comes to marketing.He also said that the Cooperative is in need of agro equipment, making specific reference to power tillers and tractors. In the absence of these equipments, you will find out that farmers will never have mass production.He noted that Liberians have the capability to become food sufficient if only local farmers are adequately empowered and motivated to work more.The Cooperative president said he and his colleagues are proud to be part of such a worthy endeavor which aimed at making Liberia food sufficient.Members of the visiting team, Dr. Lamien and Mr. Nkah, expressed their happiness at the level of work that WAAPP is doing in Liberia, especially in Gbedin. They however called on the government to give agriculture more attention as it has the potential for employment and economic growth.DFC was founded in 1972 and was one of the largest agro cooperatives in the country prior to the Liberian war. It became dormant, as expected, after the war, but was revitalized with the assistance of WAAPP and Africa Rice a few years ago. The cooperative has 250 members-60 percent male and 40 percent female.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Farmington Hotel Retrenches 40 Employees

first_imgThe front view of the hotelBy C.Y. KwanueThe euphoria that greeted about 180 new employees of the Farmington Hotel near Robertsfield, Lower Margibi County, was short-lived on Monday when news surfaced that the services of 40 persons had been terminated.The affected employees, who now appeal for government’s intervention, said they were laid off two weeks to the end of their respective probation period. They hailed President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for appreciating them with a purse of US$1500 for “the able manner in which they handled the recently hosted historic 51st ECOWAS Submit in the country.The massive downsizing reportedly took place on June 22, two months and three weeks after hiring and giving hope to the employees, many of whom claimed they left their previous jobs in Monrovia and other parts of the country. Some of them, who resettled in Smell-No-Taste (Unification Town) in Margibi County, said their collective future is in limbo.“I cried because I left my family with the hope of getting a new and permanent job in the private sector, but now I have been disappointed,” one of the affected employees told the Daily Observer yesterday via mobile phone.Daily Observer also gathered that Farmington Hotel’s Liberia-based Lebanese partners, representing the Abi Jaoudi Group, masterminded the retrenchment exercise at the hotel.Farmington’s decision to retrench 40 of its workforce came barely a month after the government granted the management a 30-year tax holiday.On May 30 of this year, 34 of the 73 Representatives on Capitol Hill voted to ratify a 30-year Investment Incentive Agreement between Liberia and the Roberts International Airport (RIA) Hotel Resorts, Incorporated. In that session, there were 38 Representatives present, and 34 of them voted overwhelmingly for the passage of the ‘Tax Holiday’ agreement, following a report from the Joint Committee on Investment and Concession and Judiciary.The report argued that the hotel or tourism business is a struggling industry in Liberia, and should therefore enjoy a tax holiday.But some of those retrenched, according to report, have earlier signed a year contract with the management dating April this year to April 7 next year, but the management reportedly refused to give out copy of the alleged contract to the employees. The hotel management also issued identification cards to each of the affected employees dating from May, 2017 to May 2018 as expiration date, but to the surprise of the terminated staff was informed of being overstaffed.However, the general manager, Roland Stilting, told the Daily Observer yesterday via mobile phone that his management team implemented the termination exercise, “according to the book—the Decent Work Act.” Under Section 14.2 of the Decent Work Act, an employer has the right to terminate employment concluded for a definite period at any time provided that he has cause to do so under section 14.3, which says an employer has the right to terminate employment concluded for an indefinite period at any time provided that the employer follows the procedures specified in those sections as appropriate. In this context, it is not clear as to which of the rules the management had applied before taking the decision to terminate the employees.“Yes, we have terminated a good number of our staff, some for poor performances, but we go by what is on the book (labor standards),” Stilting said. He said prior to the exercise, management evaluated the performance of each of the terminated employees who, “did not meet our requirement.” He said the retrenched were happy, “because they were certificated and given an overtime pay having participated in our one-month program.” He did not elaborate on the one-month program.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Guyana signs historic Amazonian pact to protect tropical forest

first_imgGuyana joined six fellow Amazonian countries on Friday in Letecia, Colombia to sign a pact to protect the world’s largest tropical forest.The pact, signed at a time when the Amazon is under threat from fires, aims to coordinate disaster response and satellite monitoring.Colombian President Ivan Duque, Bolivian President Evo Morales, Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno and Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra, Surinamese Vice President Michael Ashwin Adhin and Brazilian Foreign Minister Ernesto Araujo along with Guyana’s Natural Resources Minister, Raphael Trotman signed onto the pactNatural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman, who represented President David Granger, signed on behalf of Guyana. Colombia’s President, Ivan Duque; Bolivia’s President, Evo Morales; Ecuador’s President, Lenin Moreno and Peru’s President Martin Vizcarra were the Heads of State who signed. Suriname’s Vice President, Michael Ashwin Adhin and Brazil’s Foreign Minister, Ernesto Araujo signed the pact on behalf of their respective countries.Minister Trotman, in delivering a message on behalf of President Granger, reiterated to the South American leaders that, “our President is the visionary who conceptualised the Green State Development Strategy (GSDS) for Guyana – it is our lighted path towards attaining a green and sustainable economy and is open to be shared and improved upon.“An inferno in the Amazon, two-thirds of which is in Brazil, and the reason for us being here, threatens the rainforest eco-system and also affects the entire globe,” Minister Trotman related.“The effects of damage to the Amazon go far beyond Brazil and its neighbours. We are the lungs of the earth; we must all breathe to live. Therefore, our presence here is in recognition of the value and importance of the Amazon, and the Guiana Shield, and our role as custodians, stewards, and guardians of it,” Minister Trotman asserted.The Amazon is the world’s largest rainforest, which produces approximately 20 per cent of Earth’s oxygen and spans eight countries, including Guyana. It covers 40 per cent of South America, is inhabited by 30 million people and is home to vast numbers of mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles, most of them unique to the region. New plant or animal species are discovered at a rate of one every two days in the Amazon.Guyana’s Ambassador to Brazil, George Talbot joined Minister Trotman, who was accompanied by Head of the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility Project (FCPF), Clayton Hall.

Forsberg gets dealt to Nashville

first_img“It was our belief that in the long run, for the betterment of the franchise’s future, this was something we needed to do.” Forsberg, who said he was “shocked” by the trade, can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He could still sign with the Flyers again in the off-season. Forsberg said he would not make a decision on re-signing with any team until the summer when he can evaluate his surgically-repaired right foot. “I had one of the best teammates ever in Simon Gagne – and Mike Knuble,” he said. “I was willing to go somewhere where they could get something for me, and it’s a good team. It kind of worked out the way we had it planned. I like it here. But I could not commit and I understand what they had to do.” Snider said it was “unfortunate” that the team had so many injuries in Forsberg’s two seasons that it could not accomplish its goals. “We’re going to miss him in the short run, but in the long run we will be fine,” Snider said. A day after former Heat guard Tim Hardaway expressed his disgust over gay players competing in the NBA, Heat coach Pat Riley offered a rebuke, as well as perspective. “It would not be tolerated in our organization,” Riley said on a 560-WQAM sports show. A day earlier, on a 790 The Ticket radio show, Hardaway said, “I hate gay people. I let it be known, I don’t like gay people. I don’t like to be around gay people. Yeah, I’m homophobic. I don’t like it.” Hardaway’s comments came a week after retired center John Amaechi became the first active or former NBA player to publicly acknowledge he was gay while promoting his autobiography Man in the Middle. “Yes, I was shocked by some of the words that he used,” Riley said of Hardaway, who he coached from 1996-2001. “It’s a tough subject to talk about if you’re not really thinking about it a lot. It’s one-sided. But I was a little bit shocked by some of the words that he used. Hardaway fallout BALCO testimony A Colorado lawyer pleaded guilty Thursday to obstructing justice by leaking secret grand jury documents to two reporters covering the government’s probe of steroids in sports. Troy Ellerman agreed to be sent to prison for as long as two years and fined up to $250,000 for the convictions. U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White isn’t bound by the plea agreement and said he hasn’t decided whether to accept it. White said he could impose as much as a 15-year prison term at Ellerman’s sentencing, set for June 14. “The charges cut to the very core of our criminal justice system,” the judge said. “This represents a corruption of our system by a member of the bar and by an officer of the court.” The 44-year-old Ellerman, from Woodland Park, Colo., also is likely to lose his license to practice law. He declined comment Thursday. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Hours later, one of the NHL’s most gifted setup men, and perhaps the most exciting, agile center to play the game here in decades, was sent to the Predators. Forsberg was pulled after warm-ups and scratched for the game against Thursday night’s opponent, the Toronto Maple Leafs. “We’ve gone round and round with Peter over the last fair amount of time about making a commitment to us in future years, and due to Peter’s uncertainty, he could not and would not do that moving forward,” general manager Paul Holmgren said. center_img Flyers center Peter Forsberg was traded to the Nashville Predators on Thursday night for highly regarded defensive prospect Ryan Parent, right winger Scottie Upshall, and first- and third-round picks in the 2007 draft. Forsberg, 33, met earlier in the day at the Wachovia Center with club chairman Ed Snider and he said the two had agreed to a decision on whether he would re-sign with the team or waive his no-trade clause. last_img read more

Stay trim? Insurance price is right if BMI is

first_imgCustomers who qualify for the program can start seeing reduced rates after five years if their BMI remains in the 19-to-25 range. Customers will see their premiums drop by 5 percent for every five years that they keep a healthy BMI ratio, up to a maximum of 20 percent after 20 years. The plan comes as U.S. obesity rates are at an all-time high. Nearly one-third of adult Americans – 32 percent – are considered obese, the federal government says. Obesity can cause diabetes, heart disease and other health-related complications that shorten life spans. The proportion of obese adults has more than doubled, from 15 percent in the mid-1970s. Insurance companies prize healthy customers because they live longer. Insurers make more revenue from healthy customers who pay monthly premiums well into their 70s than from customers that die of natural causes years earlier. Although life insurers typically consider lifestyle, weight, age and family medical history when writing policies, Phoenix’s BMI discount is unique. More than 140 people have signed up for the program and about 30 have been approved, said the Hartford-based company said. One of them, 42-year-old David Rollins of Bloomington, Ill., was approved for the program this winter. Rollins, who has always kept fit with a regimen of running, bicycling and lifting weights, rolled his previous Phoenix policy into its BMI program to save money. “In the longer term, the way I look at it, I’m buying a product that’s going to reward my lifestyle,” he said. But the American Medical Association said there’s not necessarily a correlation between good health and BMI ratio. Muscular athletes in good condition would likely have a higher than recommended BMI, said Dr. Ron Davis, president-elect of the AMA. “The point is obesity is a medical condition, and medical treatments are needed to address the problem,” said Davis, a Detroit-based physician specializing in preventative medicine. Obesity is a complicated issue, with a great deal related to behaviors such as poor diet and lack of physical activity or a family’s genetic makeup, he said. Dr. Rob Kinney, vice president and medical director of The Phoenix, said BMI is a good measure of longevity, which is the first consideration for a life insurance company. Men and women who are in the BMI range of between 19 and 25 live longer, he said. “It’s a statistical fact.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! HARTFORD, Conn. – Amid a growing obesity epidemic in the United States, an insurance company has started giving customers another reason to slim down by being one of the first in the nation to offer discounts to customers who keep a low body-mass index. Phoenix Cos. Inc. is offering discounts up to 20 percent on life insurance policies to customers whose BMI is verified by a doctor to be 19 to 25. BMI is a ratio of body fat that takes height and weight into account. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention define obesity as a BMI of 30 or more; people with a BMI from 25 to 30 are considered overweight. “We tried to come up with a program that accounts for factors such as strokes, and help those who maintain healthy weight, lifestyle (and) what they eat – and go to the gym,” said Joe Kelleher, senior vice president and chief operating officer of The Phoenix. “We thought we’d be able to reward those people.” last_img read more

Lohan lawyers drop request for order in busboy’s suit

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsIn a four-page countersuit filed Oct. 11, Lohan’s attorneys note the CHP report shows Ortega was at fault for making an illegal U-turn. The collision involving Lohan’s black Mercedes-Benz SL65 and Ortega’s van occurred about 5 p.m. on Oct. 4, 2005, on Robertson Boulevard just south of Beverly Boulevard, according to his lawsuit. For more news and observations about crime in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, check out the Daily News’ crime blog by clicking here. Lawyers for Lindsay Lohan now say a busboy has responded to their request for answers and documents supporting his allegations in a lawsuit against the actress, according to court papers obtained today. Lohan’s lawyers filed a two-page document yesterday asking Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael L. Stern to cancel a Jan. 9 hearing. The actress’ lawyers were scheduled to ask for a court order on that date forcing Raymundo Ortega to give proof of his contention that she was drunk and fled the scene after the two were involved in a traffic collision. The Lohan attorneys deny the allegations and say their position is supported by the findings of the California Highway Patrol, which prepared a report on the collision. Ortega, of Los Angeles, sued Lohan for negligence on June 14. The restaurant worker alleges the actress, now 21 but then 19, had been drinking when she crashed a black Mercedes-Benz convertible into his van in West Hollywood two years ago. He wants at least $200,000 in damages. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more
