Mourinho, who at that time was in command of the first team, was impressed by the talent of the young Spanish.Nicky Butt, who is currently the director of the network quarry, highlighted during the signing of the contract what they think of the former Espanyol club: “We have been very impressed. He has adapted very well, made efforts to master English quickly. He has all the attributes to become a great player ”. At the moment, in Puigmal’s plans is the objective of going with Spain U-19 to the Eurocopa of the category in order to demonstrate that he can start having minutes in the United first team… Arnau Puigmal, 19, is one of the Spaniards who in recent years have decided to complete their last years of training before making the leap to professional in England. Examples such as those of Fàbregas, Piqué or Bellerín encourage young talents to accept the succulent offers that the greats of the Premier They make the most promising footballers of the different Spanish quarries every season.In the case of Puigmal, was the great promise of the Espanyol quarry, where he entered the 2010-11 season from Sant Cugat.

Stage Play Adaptation of Anti-Corruption Children’s Book, Gbagba, Released in Video Form on World…

first_imgCover art of the book, Gbagba, by Robtel Neajai PaileyIn a recently released video of ‘Gbagba: The Stage Play,’ a diminutive, 8 year-old Liberian child actor proclaims, “In gbagba or corruption, there are never any real winners, only loser.”  On November 20, World Children’s Day, this pithy phrase is particularly relevant because it sums up how corruption—a mainstay in nations both rich and poor—stifles human progress.The play debuted at Monrovia City Hall in Liberia on September 28, 2017 comprising an all-child Liberian ensemble cast trained over a period of five months by premier theater company, Flomo Theater.In the book and its stage adaptation, children navigate the confusing ethical codes of the adults in their lives, in places as diverse as traffic jams, schools, churches and marketplaces. The children express clearly and honestly the concrete ways in which gbagba, loosely translated in the Bassa language as ‘corruption,’ hurts rather than heals society.‘Gbagba: The Stage Play’ was adapted from the anti-corruption children’s book, ‘Gbagba,’ written by Robtel Neajai Pailey, illustrated by Chase Walker and published to critical acclaim by One Moore Book in 2013.The stage play and accompanying highlights video, join a growing collection of multi-media tools adapted from the book to facilitate conversations between children and adults in Africa and across the globe about how to be accountable to self, community, nation and world.In the video and other media outlets, Gbagba author Pailey says that “children are the moral compass of Liberia; they are the moral compass of the world. When they start publicly exposing corruption for what it truly is, my hope is that adults will be shamed into living more honestly, with integrity.”‘Gbagba: The Stage Play’ was made possible through a generous grant from the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA). Massa Crayton, Liberia country representative, who was present at the stage play, had this to say about Pailey’s use of the arts to tackle corruption: “The Gbagba story is a classic example of the saying that children live what they see. Gbagba or corruption is one of the major societal vices they grow up with in the home, community and larger society.“Development of the Gbagba story into a stage play for children, who are the future leaders of Liberia, places premium on a much needed national conversation about the effects of corruption and the more than urgent need to curb it. Special thanks to the children who performed brilliantly on stage. We hope they carry the anti-gbagba message as wide as possible.”Since its publication in 2013, ‘Gbagba’ has been piloted in schools across Liberia as well as placed on the supplemental list of readers for 3rd to 5th graders by the Liberian Ministry of Education and for Primary 3 by the Ghana Education Service.The subject of anti-corruption workshops for children in Liberia, Mozambique, Jamaica, and the UK, ‘Gbagba’ has also been adapted into a song, video and radio drama. A sequel is forthcoming in 2018.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Too Soon to Expect Too Much,’ Liberians Urged

first_imgJohn MannahFormer Liberian media practitioner cautions compatriotsA former Liberian media practitioner has lauded his compatriots for overwhelmingly electing former world soccer icon George Manneh Weah as President, but appealed to them to minimize their expectations by not asking too much too soon.Mr. John Mannah, a former Liberian journalist from the 1980s, instead wants his compatriots to come to their country’s aid in its hour of need.In an interview recently, Mr. Mannah who now resides in the United States, said as a concerned and caring Liberian, “it is my appeal to all my fellow citizens to remain peaceful and respectful to our new government while it tackles the many economic and social challenges it has inherited; it is expedient to understand that it is too soon to expect too much.”Mannah, however, asserted that understandingly the citizens are right in their high expectations of the new government to deliver on its campaign promises for which he said President Weah received over 60% of their vote; “but we are aware of the fact that the last months of the immediate past government going through a fractured economy.”“In light of these hurdles, President Weah cut short his honeymoon and hit the ground running, and accompanied by a high power team paid his first official visit to friendly governments in Africa and Europe, and major world financial institutions for assistance to help implement his campaign promises of a government with a pro-poor policy,” Mannah.On President Weah’s ongoing call for a referendum on granting citizenship to non-negroes and dual citizenship, Mannah was non-committal, but urged the government to concentrate for now on the more immediate pressing areas such as jobs, business opportunities, remedy the menacing underprivileged youth, especially the “zogos,” quality education, and health care for the masses who decided he was the best preference among 20 other aspirants in the last Presidential elections.“We must never forget that despite our political differences, building Liberia will rest solely on the shoulders of all Liberians; only Liberians through a united resolve will take this country to be among other developing African countries,” Mannah challenged.Mannah who briefly worked with this newspaper in the 1980s recalled that former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf came to power in 2006, and was faced with a similar situation now facing President Weah;”a broken economy and a broke government with near empty coffers.”For the sake of emphasis, “I am challenging President Weah to pay keen attention to the social welfare sector of the country, which is presently in a non-functional  state  and plan better programs for the amelioration of the lives of our people.”Concluding, Mannah admonished Liberians not to lose sight of the fact that Liberia will rise again and even be better under the Presidency of George Weah; “but first let us put our high hopes and expectations aside for now and give the new leader the chance to deliver on his promises.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Wasteful Sharks pay the penalty to Simba

first_imgThe game was forced into penalties after a barren draw in regulation time in a match that didn’t provide much of attacking spectacle from either side.On spot kicks, despite carrying with him a knee injury picked up late on in the match, keeper Manula saved two spot kicks as the Tanzanians kept on course their former coach Dylan Kerr’s dream final against his current employers Gor Mahia.Pascal Ogweno saw his spot kick rise over the bar before defender Geoffrey Shiveka saw his poorly taken kick saved by Manula. Haruna Niyonzima scored the first for Simba with skipper Husssein ‘Tshabalala’ Mohammed skying his.Eric Kipkurui scored Sharks’ third before Erasto Nyoni kept Simba in the lead. Harrison Mwenda stepped up and scored and Sharks thought they had gotten back to the game when Paul Bukaba’s shot came off the underside of the bar.However, skipper Juma made a mess of his kick giving Manula an easy save and Mkude made the most of it, scoring the decider.Simba SC keeper Aishi Manula clashes with Kariobangi Sharks forward Eric Kapaito as he came out to clear a cross during their SportPesa Super Cup clash at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on June 4, 2018.

However, he was slow to pull the trigger with only keeper Aishi Manula to beat allowing Jonas Mkude to race back, apply some bit of pressure on him and his eventual shot was weak.20 minutes later, he had an equally glorious opportunity to score, but once again his finishing was non-existent.Sven Yidah won the ball in midfield, toe poked to Duke Abuya on the right who raced into it and slit in a low cross with pace but Kapaito who was running into the six yard box unmarked failed to give the ball the slightest of touches to direct it into the net.Apart from those two chances, Sharks had not threatened much with Simba keeping the ball, passing it across the park with ease but did not create danger upfront.Simba SC defender Hussein Mohammed turns away from with Kariobangi Sharks forward Duke Abuya during their SportPesa Super Cup clash at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on June 4, 2018.

Treasurer discloses 7 years of returns

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant “The treasurer said all along he was planning on releasing his tax returns, and that’s what he’s done here today,” said Angelides campaign spokesman Brian Brokaw. “He’s running for governor now. That’s why he’s released his returns.” But the Westly campaign faulted Angelides for not releasing more returns, saying the public should know more about his private-sector activities before he took office. “He failed to provide information on his business dealings as a Sacramento land developer,” said Westly campaign spokesman Nick Velasquez. “That begs the question: What is he trying to hide?” Angelides was a real-estate developer and consultant in the Sacramento region before running for treasurer in 1998. He sold his business when he took office, but continued to earn millions of dollars in deferred payments from past services while treasurer, as well as substantial income from dividends, interest and capital gains. If elected governor, Angelides said Thursday, he will put his family assets into a blind trust, just as Schwarzenegger has done. Angelides’ returns indicate he gave about $210,000 to charity. As treasurer he earns around $138,000 a year, though his campaign said he took a voluntary 5 percent pay cut in 2003. SACRAMENTO – Under pressure from challenger Steve Westly, state Treasurer Phil Angelides revealed seven years of tax returns Thursday, saying he earned more than $11 million from investments and business interests and paid more than $3 million in taxes from 1998-2004. Angelides, who is battling state Controller Westly for the Democratic nomination for governor, released seven years of state and federal returns nearly six months after Westly released 10 years of returns. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger released his returns during the 2003 recall campaign, but has yet to do so as governor, though his campaign has said he will. Westly has been issuing frequent challenges to the treasurer to release his returns, but the Angelides campaign said Thursday’s release had nothing do with prodding from his rival. Reporters were allowed to view Angelides’ returns for 1998-2004 in his attorney’s office, but were not allowed to make copies. His campaign said the 2005 returns will be released when available. The release of the returns highlights the fact that all three major candidates for governor are multimillionaires – Angelides from real estate; Westly as a former executive of eBay who earned $225 million over the 10 years, mostly from stock sales; and Schwarzenegger is estimated to have made hundreds of millions of dollars from his movies, as well as business and real-estate interests. Political analysts noted when wealthy candidates release their returns, it benefits the public, but also reinforces the idea that they are in a far different socioeconomic class than average voters. “The fact that all of them have gazillions of dollars makes the average voter feel like they’re a separate class,” Barbara O’Connor, director of the Institute for the Study of Politics and the Media at California State University, Sacramento. “But they already think that. It just reinforces their feeling.” Harrison Sheppard, (916) 446-6723 harrison.sheppard@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
