FIFA’s Chief Medical Officer assesses preparations in PNG

first_imgIt was an opportunity to gather information regarding the health situation in the region and the condition of medical facilities as well as to initiate discussions with the authorities for the future implementation of FIFA’s global health initiative “FIFA 11 for Health”.During his visit, Prof. Dvořák met the father of Papua New Guinean independence, Sir Michael Somare, the Minister of Sport and Tourism, Hon. Justin Tkatchenko and the Governor of Port Moresby, Mr Powes Parkop. The representatives of Port Moresby and the government guaranteed their full support in ensuring a successful competition later this year.At the conclusion of the five-day visit, Dvořák’s feedback was very positive: “The medical facility which will serve during the FIFA competition is a state-of-the-art hospital, offering all diagnostic and therapeutic procedures including the majority of surgical interventions. In the event of medical emergencies, the emergency system is well developed and fully available to serve the competition. The LOC medical staff will work in partnership with the FIFA Venue Medical Officers and are well trained.”The FIFA medical team will inform all team doctors participating in the competition about details regarding the prevention of communicable diseases and about the available medical services. As malaria is present in Papua New Guinea, the city authorities in Port Moresby will take all precautions to eliminate stagnant waters, which are the breeding grounds of mosquitos.Dvořák also took the opportunity to participate in a key public initiative, the Walk for Life campaign, in which the Governor of Port Moresby guides a walk of approximately 10km through the city while providing health messages on preventing communicable and non-communicable diseases. Almost 35,000 people participated in this particular walk.“It was an unforgettable experience and an example of an active city,” Dvořák said. “The background and the philosophy of the governor and the Ministry of Sport and Tourism complements the ‘FIFA 11 for Health’ programme and is most fitting. We will start discussions with the authorities with a view to initiating the implementation of our global health campaign ‘FIFA 11 for Health’ prior to the opening match of the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.”In his discussions with the authorities, Prof. Dvořák also stressed that the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Papua New Guinea should also be used to support one of FIFA’s key objectives, to develop women’s football and women in football. The LOC and FIFA will work together to bring about cultural change regarding the role of women in Papua New Guinean society and to ensure that efforts and projects are put in place to reduce violence against women and girls in the country.last_img read more

Gor holds Rayon Sport in Confed Cup opener

first_img0Shares0000Gor Mahia fans keenly following their team during a past match. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYANairobi, Kenya, May 6- Gor Mahia started their CAF Confederation Cup campaign with a point away from home, holding hosts Rayon Sport to a 1-1 draw at a rain-drenched Stade de Kigali, Nyamirambo on Sunday evening.Francis Kahata should have won the game for the record Kenyan Premier League champions eight minutes to time but he wasted a glorious opportunity one on one with the keeper off a Meddie Kagere cross. Kagere broke the deadlock in the 10th minute scoring against his former employers but a well struck freekick from left-back Eric Rutanga quarter of an hour later drew the hosts level.Back at his home turf, Kagere scored off a sweeping counter attack when he broke the offside trap to race into a George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo pass that split the defense into two.Kagere was calm and collected as he rounded up keeper Eric Ndayishimiye before slotting into an empty net.Gor had picked the move fast off the blocks from the goalkick after Ismaila Diarra’s shot from the right had gone wide.Before that, Odhiambo had the first effort at goal with a half volley after Ndayishimiye’s punch off a corner fell kindly on his path at the edge of the box.Gor Mahia’s Jack Tuyisenge (centre) is congratulated by teammates Meddie Kagere (left) and Francis Kahata (right) after scoring against Mathare United during a Kenyan Premier League clash at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on April 29, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaSix minutes after going ahead, Kagere almost turned provider with his overhead kick from the left finding Francis Kahata inside the box, but the midfielder’s header went wide.Rayon however went back level in the 25th minute with Rutanga curling home a freekick from the edge of the box after Godfrey Walusimbi had fouled Mbondi Christ.With the heavy rain falling, the pace of the game was hugely punctured but once it subsided, Gor should have re-taken the lead in the 37th minute but Kagere was denied by Ndayishimiye from close range after he raced into a loose ball.In the second half the game became tougher with the soggy pitch due to the heavy rain making it difficult to move with the ball constantly getting dragged back in the patches of water.But Gor almost went back ahead when Joash Onyango’s header from a corner came off the underside of the bar falling kindly into Ndayishimiye’s arms. Gor piled the pressure getting three corners in succession but none bore fruit.They were almost made to pay on the hour mark when Mbondi found a loose ball inside the box but he blasted his shot over the bar with the defense caught off their feet.Late on though, it was Gor who should have gone on to win. Kahata was picked out with a decent chipping pass by Kagere but after controlling the ball well, he struck wide with his weaker right foot one on one with Ndayishimiye.Five minutes later, Gor had another opportunity when Jacques Tuyisenge who had been kept quiet by his countrymen most of the game powered through the left, played a decent cut back to Ernest Wendo but the midfielder took a heavy first touch allowing the defense to clear.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

No chance Stoke will sell Butland to Liverpool for £20m, insists Hughes

first_img1 Mark Hughes insists there is no chance of Stoke cashing in on Jack Butland.The highly-rated goalkeeper has been in outstanding form for the Potters this season, having being given his first-team chance following Asmir Begovic’s summer switch to Chelsea.Butland, 22, is reportedly drawing admiring glances from Liverpool, with suggestions Jurgen Klopp is ready to sanction a £20m bid in January.However, Stoke boss Hughes has no fears about losing the England international, who only signed a new four-year contract in March.“Jack’s going nowhere,” he said. “He’s progressing well but he’s very early into his career development as a number one keeper. People are aware of him – and they have been for a long time.“Jack forced his way into the England squad when he was 19 but he needs a season-in-season-out of week-in-week-out in the Premier League. He’s had a great career progression, every step he’s taken he’s dealt with.“Now it’s about consolidating himself in a very good Premier League team. That’s the challenge for him.”Hughes refused to put a price tag on Butland but admitted £20million would not be enough when the figure was put to him.The Stoke boss added: “Do I think that’s a fair value? No. We wouldn’t place a value on him anyway.” Jack Butland last_img read more

MINISTER PROMISES TO REVIEW DONEGAL SCHOOL TRANSPORT CHARGES – BUT NOT UNTIL NEXT YEAR

first_imgThe Junior Minister at the Department of Education and Skills has promised to review the controversial school bus charges for Donegal next year.Ciaran Cannon was in Letterkenny this morning where he was met by more than 150 protesters angry at the new proposed transport charges.Under the new plans, schoolchildren living less than 3.2 kms from rural schools will have to pay €200 per child per year while those outside that zone will have to pay €50 each. The Minister was due to meet deputations from five different schools across Donegal who are fuming at the new charges.Dozens of children waved placards with some reading ‘Don’t Make our children cannon fodder.’Spokesman for the Glenswilly School Transport Emergency Committee, Cathal Quinn, said the Government has mounted a vicious assault not only on children but also on every parish community.“Minister Cannon is like some latter day Dick Turpin who has issued the ultimatum – your money or your children’s lives. “Rural Ireland must rise with us and the people of Leitrim, Sligo, Roscommon and elsewhere must take a stand against this penalty,” he said.Mr Quinn called on both Deputy Joe McHugh and Senator Jimmy Harte to make their views on the school bus charges known to the public of Donegal.The Minister said a Bus Eireann survey had shown the new charges affect just 5% of pupils.However angry parents in Donegal said their own survey had found that up to 45% of pupils in schools like Glenswilly will be affected.After meeting with the Minister for more than an hour, the deputations revealed that Minister Cannon will look at the charges again for the next school year in 2012. Teacher Geraldine Galligan, who was also part of the delegation to the Minister, said they now had to take the Minister at his word.“He did listen and he seemed genuinely concerned about our plight. He has told us he will review the situation for the next year.“We probably have to accept that now and take the Minister at his word. But we will be here again next year if he is not true to his word,” she warned.Letterkenny Town Mayor Gerry McMonagle said he hoped the Minister’s visit was not simply a talking exercise to ‘fob’ off parents and teachers. “The amount of protesters here today shows that parents are simply at the end of their tether. They cannot afford any more charges.“These are decent people who only want the best for their children and this Minister is slapping a penalty on them because they live in rural Ireland.“He has said he will review the charge and I hope now that he is true to his word and that he is not simply fobbing these people off,” he said.EndsMINISTER PROMISES TO REVIEW DONEGAL SCHOOL TRANSPORT CHARGES – BUT NOT UNTIL NEXT YEAR was last modified: July 12th, 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)Tags:Glenswilly National SchoolMINISTER CIARAN CANNONlast_img read more

Over 90 young people enjoy fun-filled learning initiative

first_imgOver 90 young Donegal people have enjoyed taking part in a unique project aimed at understanding diversity, team-building and community relations.The ‘Every Story Matters Project’ was launched by Donegal County Council back in February. Three groups, from Scoil Mhuire in Buncrana, The Royal and Prior School in Raphoe and the Chance Project run by Inishowen Development Partnership have participated to date. Over 90 young people aged between 14-24 have benefited from learning about subjects such as Conflict resolution, mediation training and understanding diversity.This exciting initiative is supported by the EU’s PEACE IV Programme and managed by the SEUPB. Match-funding for this project has been provided by the Executive Office in Northern Ireland and the Department of Rural and Community Development in Ireland. The initial groups having completed 30 hours training with the facilitators all recently came together for three fun filled sessions at the Inish Adventures’ facility in Moville to embark on team building workshops and exercises. In addition to being an action packed few days, many new friendships were made.Teachers Kathy-Anne Gibson (Royal and Prior), Caolan Mc Gonigle (Scoil Mhuire) and Youth Development officer Gary Duffy (IDP) alongside Every Story Matters Tutor Stephen Friel and some ParticipantsAccording to Katrina Mc Gonigle the Transition Year Co-ordinator at Scoil Mhuire in Buncrana:‘The programme has been highly beneficial to our students – they learned so much from Stephen and Michael the facilitators, who always made sure the workshops were interactive. In particular our students were really pleased to have met and learned from a Syrian refugee who is now resident and working in Donegal – hearing his story first hand and being able to ask him questions really brought the challenges of refugees’ home to our students in a way that cannot be done by simply reading about it. The students also gained an insight into the Muslim faith which dispelled many preconceived stereotypes they had held.”Every Story Matters Participants enjoying the team Kayaking in MovilleKathy-Anne Gibson, the teacher in charge of the Transition Year student group from the Royal and Prior in Raphoe highlighted the engagement the group had with Richard Moore. “Richard’s story was truly inspirational, having lost his sight as a ten-year-old in tragic circumstances, Richard spoke to our students about living with a disability, forgiveness and the work he continues to do as the founder and director of the Children in Crossfire Charity. He was happy to address all the questions the students had about living with his disability and indeed meeting with, and forgiving, the soldier who fired the shot that blinded him. Every Story Matters project really forced our students to think outside the box, Stephen and Michael challenged the students about how they viewed themselves and other people in a fun and safe environment.”The programme teaches participants empathy and understanding through participation in workshops, simulation exercises, field trips and interactions with guest speakers. Participants in Donegal are taught to embrace diversity and to gain a greater understanding of the challenges existing in the modern world and how to overcome these challenges.Gary Duffy the Youth Development Officer with IDP suggested that his group from the Chance Project benefited most from the trip to Derry to visit the Free Derry Museum and the Apprentice Boys Museum.Gary said: “Whilst many participants on the Chance Project had a basic understanding of the troubles in NI and what had happened in Derry, the trip to visit the two museums really brought the participants a deeper understanding of the two respective cultures that exist in Derry and how differences can be put aside’”Local Consultancy practise, Friel Consulting, led by trained mediator Stephen Friel is the lead delivery partner. The team will be delivering workshops during 2019 to 150 young people throughout Donegal aged from 14-24. Spaces still exist for the next round of workshops and interested groups are encouraged to contact Stephen at info@frielconsulting.com Over 90 young people enjoy fun-filled learning initiative was last modified: June 18th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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:Every Story Matterspeace IVlast_img read more

What’s In the Nexus S Update?

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Google’s new flagship phone – the Nexus S running a stock version of Gingerbread (Android 2.3) – has just seen its first over-the-air update, pushed out to most device owners at some point yesterday. The update, which upgrades the phone to version 2.3.1 of the Android mobile operating system, is mostly bug fixes, or so reads the update description provided by Google. But it also includes the newest version of Google Maps (ver. 5.0) – the version that introduces 3D mode and offline features.If you haven’t received the update yet – don’t despair – it’s being pushed out on a rolling basis. There’s also a trick to force the phone to receive the update notification, if you just can’t wait: dial *#*#checkin#*#* on your phone.At only 1.9 MB, this update may not even be worth noting, except for one feature: the latest version of Google Maps.Google Maps 5.0Of course, if you’re like most early adopters (and really, who else has a Nexus S at this point?), you probably already went to the Android Market to grab the new version as soon as it was released, a date which coincided with the Nexus S’s launch, actually.But if you perhaps forgot about the new Google Maps, here’s a reminder: it does 3D! For over 100 cities worldwide, you can drag two fingers downward across the display to change the mapping perspective to a 3D mode. In this mode, buildings become tilted in an angled view. sarah perez Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Google#mobile#web Where avaialble, you can also enter into 3D mode from compass mode, the mode which shows you which direction you’re headed on a map.The other notable update included in Google Maps 5.0 is a feature which stores maps locally to your handset itself. This is useful for times when you’re in areas where there’s little to no cell coverage, but could also be handy when traveling. You could download the maps in advance or via Wi-FI, then shut your data connection off so as not to incur additional charges while roaming.Some Bugs Fixed, but Others CreatedIf you haven’t yet upgraded to the latest version of Maps, the Nexus S OTA update will have you excited. Otherwise, as far as we can tell, it’s minor bug fixes alone.According to early tests the update does not appear to address some of the phone’s known issues, like blurry/low resolution MMS messages, for example (believed to be a T-Mobile issue). It also appears to affect Swype, an add-on replacement keyboard app. Some people are reporting that Swype returns to a limited functionality mode and the way to fix this is to uninstall then reinstall the app. Although, in other cases, a reinstall didn’t appear to fix the issue either (let us know what your experience is.)However, other reports state that the update does address the slight browser lag issue which some users have experienced.If you’re looking for a full list of system files patched by 2.3.1, the XDA-Developers forum has the details here.
