Ellen Dedicates US$11M NASSCORP Complex

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has officially dedicated a US$11 million commercial complex constructed by the National Social Security and Welfare Corporation (NASSCORP) at the ELWA junction in Paynesville City.The complex is intended to raise revenue for the government to further its development drive, according to NASSCORP officials.President Sirleaf dedicated the magnificent picturesque structure, which faces and can be viewed directly from the country’s most significant entry route from the Roberts International Airport (RIA), on Friday, June 6 at an elaborate ceremony held in one of the many beautiful halls in the building.  She termed the building as a classic example of the process of transforming Liberia.“I’m just pleased to be with all of you today to give recognition to the transformative contribution that have been made by those who are here and those institutions that have made this event possible, firstly NASSCORP itself.  An official of the entity has already mentioned where this corporation was in 2006 and where they are today,” President Sirleaf said.The Liberian leader lauded the kind of transformative initiatives that the corporation is embarking on with specific references to restructuring, re-organization, sound management system that is now being employed at the entity and what she termed as their investment quality.“Let me say that I’m very proud of the kind of work that is ongoing here at NASSCORP, their restructuring, re-organization, their sound quality management and their investment quality. All of these have made them today a key contributor to our development as evidenced by what we see here today,” President Sirleaf said.The Liberian President indicated that transformation is a process, and so the work of NASSCORP is not over. She said the leadership of the corporation must work to ensure completion of the civil service reform, which is at an advanced stage, and then move on to the pension reform, which she said will be the very basis upon which the government will meet its full obligations to NASSCORP.When all of these are done, it will give them the capital they need to expand their investment into facilities such as this. “We will continue to work with you,” she told the NASSCORP managementShe said completion of the multipurpose building has further demonstrated that Liberians still have a sense of what they want their country to be in the future and will help government achieve it. “It will now fast track the completion of the civil service and pension reforms that will enable government to fulfill its obligations to NASSCORP in order that they expand their activities to other parts of country,” she noted.The President expressed delight that the project is owned by Liberia and was built by a Liberian company, ECOCON Incorporated, demonstrating the realization of the Liberianization policy. ECOCON is owned and management by Henry Q. Taylor, a Liberian architect.NASSCORP Director General Dewitt vonBallmoos described the structure as a long-term investment that will help raise revenue for government as negotiations are well advanced for full occupation of the commercial complex by investors.He expressed delight that the corporation without a loan or borrowing from any commercial bank exclusively raised the US$11million used to construct the building.Mr. vonBallmoos, however, thanked the commercial banks for always servicing the benefits of its beneficiaries that he said has further brought confidence between beneficiaries and NASSCORP.He encouraged those he referred to as non-compliant employers to see reason why they should let their employees take advantage of the opportunities offered by NASSCORP.NASSCORP Investment and Development Specialist, Christopher McBorrough, said investment remains a critical function in the management of the Social Security Program (SSP). “Indeed, risk management, assets diversification and the maximization of returns remains cardinal to NASSCORP investment strategy.In 2006, the management of the Corporation inherited a non-performing investment portfolio assets base of US$4.7 million which subsequently included US$3.5 million disbursed before the 1990 civil war on land acquisition and some construction works.To date, NASSCORP’s management through the re-organization of the investment division, strategic investment policy guidelines and bold initiatives, can boast of a total current investment portfolio assets base of US$33.7 million. This is a 617 percent increment that stands at US$29 million.This comprises two core categories, real property which is 72 percent and financial assets, which is 28 percent. In terms of real property, the entity has commercial and residential properties in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, sixteen-bedrooms guesthouse in Voinjama, Lofa county, a property in Kakata, Margibi County and other acquired land in Monrovia and its environs.In terms of financial assets, NASSCORP has US$4M share in Ecobank, US$2.5M share in LBDI, US$1M debenture share in Cellcom and approximately US$10M in fixed income deposits at various local commercial banks.The dedication of this complex is in fulfillment of a statutory requirement that the NASSCORP invests 25 percent of its insurable earnings into profitable and realistic ventures.Accordingly, the management in 2007 drafted an investment policy and strategic document, purposely to fast track its investment activities to meet long-term benefit commitments and cater to the socio-economic well being of Liberians.Construction of the commercial complex began on April 18, 2009, and is the single largest infrastructure investment under the investment portfolio of the corporation. The complex includes an international conference center, shopping malls, office spaces, and banking facilities, among others.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

What Can Liberia Learn from Germany’s World Cup Victory?

first_imgGermany, like Brazil, is Liberia’s good friend, too. Indeed Deutschland is one of our country‘s oldest friends.  For it was the Hanseatic States, mostly Germanic, that became in the 1850s and 60s, the second group, after Great Britain, to recognize Liberia’s sovereignty.Germany later became our leading trading partner, buying and exporting Liberian agricultural produce to Europe and elsewhere.  By the 1940s there was a German Legation in Monrovia, situated on Capitol Hill, where the University of Liberia’s main campus is located.  At that point, too, most of the medical doctors in the country were German.  Unfortunately, Hitler, the Nazi German Chancellor, in the late 1930s started World War II, leading Liberia, following the United States, to declare war on Germany in 1945.  The Germans had to leave Liberia, plunging the nation into great financial and medical difficulty.But following the end of the war, the two countries regained their friendship under President W.V.S. Tubman and German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer.And remember that soon, the smart, industrious, hardworking and highly disciplined Germans bounced back, before the end of the 1950s, as one of the world’s leading industrial powers.  Of course, they did it with American aid.  The Americans, magnanimous (high-minded, generous) in victory, initiated the Marshall Plan, making available to Europe and Japan, devastated in war, billions of US dollars to rebuild their cities and industries. The disciplined, hardworking, patriotic and smart Germans put the Marshall Plan money TO GOOD USE, and soon Germany was competing with the very United States in industrial might.  Ever heard of the Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen and Audi vehicles?  These German-made cars soon started outselling American automobiles.  Ever heard of Siemens, the German industrial giant? They started competing with American industries in everything, including steel products and medical equipment.Let us quickly contrast all of this with Nimba County, and all the other Liberian counties which, for the first time in history, are receiving DIRECT FINANCIAL REWARDS from mining and other concessions operating on their land. Nimba receives from ArcelorMittal US$1.5 million annually, Grand Bassa, US$1 million and Bong US$500,000 in Social Development Funds (SDF).  The SDF money was made possible by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s government which made it a provision in each concession agreement. And what are these counties  doing with this money?  In the case of Nimba and so many other counties receiving their share of the SDF, the money is being squandered by these counties’ very legislators and other officials.  Remember how just last week one Nimba legislator—the name is Samuel Kogar—threatened that Nimba County would secede (break away) from Liberia if President Sirleaf touched ONE CENT OF THE SDF to fix the damages inflicted by violent Nimba  youth upon ArcelorMittal’s facilities?What have these Nimba people done with their SDF?  There is currently a big quarrel among Nimba politicians over these funds, with the legislators up in arms against the Superintendent, who is determined to use the money for the good of the people, and NOT leave it in the hands of the greedy politicians.We confess it’s a long shot to compare the Marshall Plan money and what it did for Germany, etc., and the SDF and what it is doing for Nimba County, etc.  But Jesus tells us in the story of the Ten Talents that he or she who makes good use of little will be given much more.On Sunday night, Germany emerged as the victor in the World Cup.  Why did they win and how?  We have already given the answer.  We learned in international politics that Germany, like every other country, has something known as national character—those traits (qualities) by which a country is best known.  In the case of Germany, it is DISCIPLINE, HARD WORK, SMARTNESS, THOROUGHNESS, AND PATRIOTISM.In the case of Liberia, what is our national character?  Is it discipline?  Hard work?   Thoroughness? Patriotism? Selflessness? Honesty? Commitment? A strong work ethic? What are the critical characteristics by which Liberians are known?For starts, this is what we learn from Germany’s winning of the World Cup.Had the Nimba youth been disciplined, smart and patriotic, they would never have done what they did to ArcelorMittal.  Had Mr. Kogar and those who think like him been disciplined, smart and patriotic, they would not have backed their youth in their violence.Will we Liberians learn anything from Germany’s victory?  We are a people hitherto known to be quicker at copying from others bad, rather than good things.  May God grant that this time, every Liberian will reflect soberly on the reasons for Germany’s victory and start emulating their great example.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

De Bruyne rocket fires Manchester City

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City’s Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne during the Group F football match against Shakhtar Donetsk at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England, on September 26, 2017 © AFP / Oli SCARFFManchester, United Kingdom, Sep 27 – Kevin De Bruyne’s superb strike and a late Raheem Sterling goal maintained Manchester City’s impressive form in a 2-0 Champions League win over Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday.De Bruyne struck in the 49th minute with a magnificent 20-yard strike into the top right-hand corner of the Shakhtar goal after David Silva’s run had ended with the Spaniard teeing up the opening. It was the Belgian’s first goal of City’s free-scoring season – a reflection of his new, deeper role under Pep Guardiola – but certainly a goal worth waiting for given its quality.Although City striker Sergio Aguero failed with a penalty, Sterling’s 89th minute finish from 12 yards, after a sprint and cross from fellow substitute Bernardo Silva, spared his team-mate’s blushes and wrapped up the points at Eastlands.Aguero could have doubled the lead, and equalled City’s club record of 177 goals currently held by Eric Brook in the 1930s, after Leroy Sane was brought down by Ivan Ordets after 71 minutes.But Aguero hit his spot kick too close to goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov who dived smartly to his right to keep out the effort.“The first half we had a few problems as we didn’t make enough passes in a row,” Guardiola said.“The second half was much, much better. A lot of credit to my players for today.“Even in that situation, at 1-0, we were stable.”A game which featured eight Brazilians – five of them from Shakhtar – and just three English players predictably provided plenty of entertainment and admirable football, even if goals were hard to come by.Both sides had good opportunities to break the first half deadlock, Shakhtar’s best falling to the Brazilian Fred on 11 minutes as he appeared on the end of a flowing move to ghost clean through on goal, only for countryman Fernandinho to make a superb covering tackle.There was also a firm strike from Marlos who forced City goalkeeper Ederson into the game’s first meaningful save as he dived sharply to his right.– Breathtaking –But most of the other promising moments came from the hosts, looking unstoppable in a recent five-game spell which had seen them score 22 goals.De Bruyne, one of many of the crop of City stars in a rich vein of form, unexpectedly missed the target, shooting wide after a Gabriel Jesus pass had slipped him through.And Sane first tested Pyatov with a low shot from the edge of the area then worked his way skilfully through a couple of unconvincing challenges before rolling a shot inches wide of the far upright.As the half ended, it might have appeared that City’s record of never having experienced a goalless draw in the 37 Champions League group stage fixtures was under threat.But it took just three minutes of the second half for De Bruyne to ensure the streak would continue, a development that opened up the contest even further.Sane soon tested Pyatov with a darting run and near-post shot and it looked as if Aguero was destined to edge a goal closer the record, when Silva’s breathtaking chip forward offered up a volley which the Argentinian struck directly at the keeper.There might have been more glory for De Bruyne, after another penetrating run down the left from Sane, but this time defender Ismaily managed to block his long-range effort.De Bruyne almost turned provider after 69 minutes with an enterprising run down the right and perfect cross which substitute Sterling side-footed wide on the volley.Aguero and Sane, twice, came close in the closing stages although the hosts also had to survive a strong penalty appeal from Shakhtar after the ball appeared to strike John Stones’ arm.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Singer Tara O’Grady turns epic US road trip into new novel

first_imgIrish-American Tara O’Grady has released a new book of tales from an adventurous road trip combined with fond memories of family in Donegal.Tara, the daughter of a Donegal woman, is a New York-based jazz singer and author who was inspired to follow in her late grandmother’s footsteps on a soul-searching trip across the States.Tara’s journey began in 2011 when she was laid off from her office job and suddenly had all the time in the world to travel. She had always wanted to go on a great American road trip, following the same route that her daring grandmother took in a pink Chevy in 1957. With the help of Chevrolet, Tara was able to make the same 3,000 mile trip and document the adventures for her new novel, Migrating Toward Happiness.Tara O Grady, Migrating Towards HappinessTara is a Queens woman who will always think of Donegal as her Irish home. Her mother Mary Connaghan left her Mountcharles homeland at the age of 17 and took the boat to New York. She settled down with a Bronx-born Irish man Tom O’Grady, but the family always came back to Inver in the summertime.While Tara’s ‘Donegal granny’ Nora Gallagher remains in her heart in many ways, it was her other ‘Waterford granny’ Catherine O’Donnell whose independence spurred her on the Chevy journey.Catherine was a woman ahead of her time. This was defined by her 3,000-mile solo journey from New York to Seattle. Catherine O’Donnell learning to driveTara said: “My grandfather forbade her from getting a driving licence. He told her she could walk anywhere she needed to go.“But one Easter he went home to Roscommon on the boat. In those weeks he was away, my grandmother asked his coworkers to teach her how to drive. When he came back she told him: ‘I can drive now, I have a licence, I’m taking the car and I’m going off on this adventure’.“So he stayed in the kitchen, which was very rare. No woman would even dare leave her husband in the 1950s to cook for himself.”Catherine, with her two kids in tow, travelled across America in seven weeks to visit her brother in law in Washington. When Tara regaled this story to Chevrolet on the year of their 100th anniversary in 2011, they were so amazed that they loaned her a Silverado for three weeks.Taking a breath of fresh air from her old office job, Tara and her co-pilot Lauren ventured across the States, all the while discovering that the American dream was still alive. They dubbed themselves Thelma and Louise, but instead of finding Brad Pitt lookalikes they found the meaning of life, which Tara said was so much better. The book details to duo’s road trip adventures alongside Tara’s flashbacks to rural life in Donegal.Tara said: “I have so many delicious memories of my summers in Donegal. Of being this country kid in the summer and city kid in the winter. Those parallel universes balanced me. Sometimes it’s hard to live in New York there are so many distractions. I feel connected when I live in Donegal. It’s peaceful and you can breathe.”Tara has previously held the title of New York Mary from Dungloe and performed at the 50th anniversary of the festival in 2017.Tara O’GradyStories of family, music and spiritual connections to her grandmothers are interwoven into Tara’s journey, which eventually set her on an entirely new path into music. She is now a full-time jazz and blues singer leading a band in Manhattan with five recorded albums to her name.Music was always a part of Tara’s life, as it was inspired by her Granny Nora who always sang in her Donegal kitchen.“Music was in me but I wasn’t pursuing it before. After I got laid off I had to sing for my supper, because literally if I didn’t sing in a pub or restaurant I didn’t eat,” she said.Tara O’Grady with her ‘Donegal granny’ – the late Nora GallagherTara used her Irish background to develop her own unique style of music. Her dad Tom O’Grady is a traditional fiddle player while her brother Tom studied jazz in university. Tara’s party piece was always singing.“I would take Irish songs and swing them in the style of jazz music. I sang in the voice of Billie Holiday, who I felt really connected to,” she said.“If you put all your energy into one thing, obviously something is going to come out of it. I focused on creating music and making people happy with my songs. It was a lot of hard work and I struggled for a long time.“But it was meant to be. I’m now letting the universe guide me and I’m constantly guided by my grannies.”Tara O’Grady at the 32nd Annual LEAD EAST Car Show. Photo by Richard J VelascoTara hopes that, through her books and her music, she can inspire other people to go out and find their soul purpose in life.“There are so many people suffering from depression and anxiety. In my books, I want to help them by sharing my experiences and how they can actually be living the life they are meant to. I have found pure joy and I want to share that.”Tara is planning a return trip to Donegal this June for a book launch, with details to be announced on her website: www.taraogradymusic.comSinger Tara O’Grady turns epic US road trip into new novel was last modified: March 6th, 2019 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:Migrating Toward Happinesstara o gradylast_img read more

INTERMEDIATE CHAMPIONSHIP: NAOMH COLUMBA RECORD EXCELLENT WIN OVER CARNDONAGH

first_imgCarndonagh 1-6 V Naomh Columba 1-13A brave and maybe in some eyes unlucky Carndonagh lost out to a clinical Naomh Columba team, who on another day could have been a whole lot better.Unanswered spells were the killer for the home side in this Championship game. In 3 sectors of the game, 0-3, 0-4 and 1-2 were scored by the visitors without reply, which leaves an uphill battle for any team on any day.Carndonagh did fight hard none the less, with a few more experienced names coming back into the panel, most notably Ryan Davenport who has came back from Canada to claim his place back in the starting line up and County Minor Danny Monagle after his fabulous summer with the county.Dermot McGonagle was the goal scorer for Carndonagh, who slotted home after a nice chain of link up play leading to the end product being left in the hands of McGonagle who duly delivered. The Naomh Columba goal more dubious.The goal scorer McGonagle was down with an head injury near the middle of the pitch by the end line, and in the eyes of the Carndonagh players and supporters the game should have been held up for treatment. Referee Gallagher played on and the attack resulted in a goal which was converted by Stephen McShane, to the delight of the travelling supporters, to the annoyance and despair of huge home crowd.Naomh Columba never looked back and won the game by 7 points, but this Carndonagh team can take a lot of heart from the game, and could see themselves surviving in this Championship. Carndonagh now face Buncrana next week away from home in the 2nd round.Carndonagh: Ray Lannon, Michael McLaughlin, Conor Doherty, Aidan O Callaghan, Michael Nelson, Danny Monagle, Paddy Nelson (0-1), Cathal O Kane, Dermot McGonagle (1-0), Ryan Davenport, Pádraig Doherty, Gerard Doherty (0-1),Aaron McCarron (0-1), Christopher McLaughlin (0-3), Shane Doherty.Naomh Columba: Shane O Gara, Ciaran McBrearty, Martin Cunningham, Barry Carr, Paddy Ward (0-1), Kevin McNern (0-1), Pádraig Byrne (0-4), Declan Maguire (0-2), Paddy Cunningham (0-1), Phillip McNern (0-1), Gavin McGinley, Stephen McShane (1-0), Christopher Byrne, Ryan Gillespie (0-3).INTERMEDIATE CHAMPIONSHIP: NAOMH COLUMBA RECORD EXCELLENT WIN OVER CARNDONAGH was last modified: September 29th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:CarndonghdonegalGAAIntermediate ChampionshipNAOMH COLUMBAlast_img read more

POLICE TO INTERVIEW WITNESSES IN CAOLAN PAGE ENQUIRY AS POST MORTEM COMPLETED

first_imgA number of witnesses have now come forward following the tragic death of Donegal teenager Caolan Page.A post mortem on the 19 year old was carried out this morning.A police spokesman said they are now studying the results of the post mortem before deciding what course of action their investigation will take. It had originally been thought Caolan, from Upper Kildrum in Carrigans, had fallen in Derry city centre.However the discovery of serious head injuries aroused suspicions that he may have been attacked.A number of people have not come forward after police issued an appeal for witnesses in the Magazine Street area of the city around 2am on Saturday morning when Caolan was found.But a police spokesman said they are still no closer just yet to discovering if Caolan was attacked or if he simply fell and suffered head injuries. “The two factors which will have a major impact on this case is both the CCTV footage and the outcome of the post mortem.“We are continuing to study both of these.“Only then can we say if we are treating Caolan’s death as a, b or c. That is the way things are at present.“When we are satisfied that our investigation has been completed then we will issue a further statement,” he said.Caolan, a former student at Derry’s St Columb’s College, had plans to become a vet. More than 5,000 people have logged on and left messages for the popular Donegal lad on a Facebook site set up in his honour.Following the post mortem, Caolan’s body has now been released to his heartbroken family for burial.EndsPOLICE TO INTERVIEW WITNESSES IN CAOLAN PAGE ENQUIRY AS POST MORTEM COMPLETED was last modified: October 18th, 2011 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)last_img read more
