Trail Blazers win 13th straight, beat Clippers

first_imgTrail Blazers: There were some grumblings by some on the Detroit side after Portland’s win Sunday that the Blazers were playing a tad on the rough side, which amused veteran Portland coach Terry Stotts: “That could be the first time in my tenure that one of my teams has been accused of being overly physical. So I was pleased with those comments.”Clippers: F Danio Gallinari remained out with a fractured right hand. There has been no medical update in a week, since the team said he had resumed running. He has also battled leg injuries and played in only 19 games this season. In a season when the Clippers have been ravaged with injury, coach Doc Rivers said his loss has been the most significant: “Overall, of the guys we’ve missed, it’s Gallo. It’s not even close.”UP NEXTTrail Blazers: Return home to play Houston on Tuesday.Clippers: Start a four-game road trip on Tuesday in Minnesota.ADVERTISEMENT Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

How Mobile Phones can Transform Health, Education and Agriculture in Liberia

first_imgShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Digital technology is transforming the world, and Liberia can use this technology for tremendous purposes of wellbeing in almost all the sectors that drive the Liberian Economy. Out of some of the highly advanced digital technologies, mobile phone can present HealthCare, education and agriculture sectors in Liberia with unprecedented opportunities to run their operations and provide the chance for Liberia to leap ahead in a way that was unimaginable just a few years ago. This article is the first of a three part series detailing how the mobile phone can be a key transforming agent in the future of HealthCare, Education and Agriculture in Liberia. In this article we will discuss how the mobile phone can transform HeathCare in Liberia.The mobile phone is a strong contender in fundamentally transforming the future of health and healthcare in Liberia. There are now more than 1.5 million cell phone users in Liberia[1]. Liberia now has a pathway to reach the population who were unreached earlier, and deliver health services directly to people rather than just in health facilities.Liberia’s healthcare sector is severely short of healthcare resource constraints, equipment and drugs[2]. In such a country with severe resource constraints, mobile phones can be a major boon as it can empower both patients as well as healthcare practitioners (HCPs) by providing them with the necessary information required to make informed decisions about health issues such as timely monitoring of diseases, adequate health care provisions and making health living choices.As mobile phones have reached much deeper into Liberia than any other technology, it can help in supporting diagnosis, make collection of health data easier as well as advance research and education in the remotest and resource-poor regions of Liberia.The rapid penetration of mobile phones in the country provides good opportunity to reach those segments of the population who are currently left out because of distance and lack of communication, using ‘mHealth’ (mobile health) programs.Health centers in Liberia face difficulties getting the required medical supplies and drugs they need to treat patients. As a result, a large number of Liberians are plagued with preventable and treatable diseases. The mHealth programs can help overcome these infrastructure challenges and can help health workers to collect and disseminate logistics.Apart from helping patients, mobile phones can also prove helpful to health care providers in Liberia. The mobile phones can empower health care providers to provide high quality of patient care. Due to the shortage of healthcare facilities in Liberia, many Liberians have to wait for weeks and even months to get a physician’s appointment. With the adoption of mobile phones, healthcare facilities can remotely connect, interact and monitor with thousands of patients.In addition, there are several mobile apps that offer quick access to medical research from mobile devices to physicians. These apps can help doctors better understand the health of patients and provide improved care for the patients. Such apps are now being used by several countries in Africa. In Kenya, there is Child-Count, a SMS-based system that allows health care workers to register and treat children with acute malnutrition and diarrhea. By integrating healthcare with such mobile technology, Kenya aims to end poverty and reach the UN Millennium Development Goals by 2015.The use of mobile phone can transform the entire health care system of Liberia by allowing doctors to deliver higher quality patient care and can ensure that more people in Liberia receive better care.last_img read more

Number of shelter families on the rise in Massachusetts

first_imgData from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development suggests there about 750,000 homeless in the nation on any given night, with about 40 percent of those members of homeless families, said Philip Mangano, director of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness. The overall number of homeless people is up from a few years ago, he said, but nobody can pinpoint an exact number of families because reporting requirements vary widely from state to state. “Our desire would be to have many more states step up and track the data,” Mangano said. “Research and data, that’s what should drive the resources that we make available. Instead it’s often anecdote, conjecture and hearsay that does that.” Kehoe attributes the increase in Massachusetts to a convergence of low wages, high housing costs, an increase in housing foreclosures and cuts in federal and state housing assistance programs. Two years ago, lawmakers also lowered the financial eligibility requirements to qualify for homeless benefits from the poverty level to those making 130 percent of what would be considered a poverty wage, she said. “I think what we are seeing here is a perfect storm,” she said. “Until we have some investment in affordable housing, and some flexibility in using our resources, we’re not going to see a leveling off of these numbers.” Commissioner Kehoe and Frost said families also are being squeezed by the recent national lending crisis, as high mortgages that have forced some landlords to sell or face foreclosure.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityAbout 1,800 homeless families were in Massachusetts shelters last week – up from 1,400 in June 2006 and just under 1,200 in June 2005, according to state figures. There are more families in shelters now than at any time since the inception of the state’s family shelter program in 1983, according to the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. State officials blame a wide range of problems – from cuts in assistance to the recent housing crisis. “We’re very concerned that this is going to keep going,” said Julia Kehoe, commissioner of the state Department of Transitional Assistance. Massachusetts is one of the few states that keep government records of the number of homeless families in shelters because state law requires the Commonwealth to shelter any family that meets income and other guidelines. The state keeps a daily count to show how many beds it needs, said Robyn Frost, executive director of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. Nationally, the picture is much less clear. AMHERST, Mass. – There is just enough space for Lisa Rivera’s family to sleep at Jessie’s House homeless shelter. In one room, she fits the full-sized bed she shares with her 9-year-old daughter, the trundle for her 11-year-old son, a twin bed for her 14-year-old daughter and a playpen for her 1 -year old son. “It’s comfortable, but it’s hard sleeping all together,” the 32-year-old woman said. “Oh my God, sometimes it’s so hard.” Faced with domestic abuse, high housing costs and unemployment, Rivera’s family finds itself among the growing ranks of the homeless in Massachusetts – and possibly, the country. last_img read more

ON THE ROAD AGAIN – RALLY SPECIAL with BRIAN McDAID

first_imgOn The Road Again, By Brian McDaid: The Donegal Rally is here again and this week we look at two Donegal Teams and how they journey through the rallying world. Sister Act: In car No. 147 the Boyle Sisters from Manorcunningham will start the Donegal Rally in a two- litre civic. For one of them, the navigator, eighteen-year-old Jasmine it will be her first ever rally.In fact Jasmine is in her final year at Holy Cross Secondary School in Strabane and is presently sitting her A levels and will have the final exam to do on Tuesday morning following the rally.She is not the first to do a Donegal in the middle of her final exams, Rory Kennedy made the same journey in 1979 when he got excused while sitting his leaving Cert at St. Eunan’s Collage to do his 1st Donegal Rally with James Cullen.Jasmine got the call up from her big sister Glenda to do this Donegal because her other older sister Kylie, a teacher in London can’t make it home this year to navigate for the event. The girls car punches out a healthy 230 bhp, but Glenda reckons that only 195 bhp of that is getting to the road. Even at that, the car is sore on gearboxes, which Glenda explains is a Honda problem, and has caused them retirements over the last couple of events.As the girls were completing their recce this week they were still awaiting the arrival of a reconditioned box for the car for the rally.Glenda Boyle is a talented rally driver and made her mark in the UK in 2007 where she won her rallying scholarship and also won a Peugeot Rally Car. She then competed in 6 rounds of the British rally championship in 2008 winning the ladies award.Glenda and Jasmine’s uncles Liam and the late John Boyle where competitors over the years in the rally and their parents Martin and Carol would take the girls to watch them compete, so its easy to see why the girls are hooked on rallying.Asking Glenda about her favourite stage on the Donegal, it has to be the Fanad Head stage, great road surface and very fast and a long stage which all are a great challenge to any driver.Ask about her favourite driver, and her response is instant, Kris Meeke with out a doubt, Glenda thinks he is in a great position at the moment in his career, she is so much looking forward to him completing his year of development and can’t wait to see him in his new Citroen next season in the World Rally Championship. This year the girls Donegal rally is all about introducing another member of the Boyle’s to rallying, Jasmine is in at the deep end this weekend and the girls are so focused on getting the car over the finishing ramp on Sunday evening.Brothers in arms:This week we meet up with the man who signs off on the spoiler of his rally car as “The Big Lad”.Mark Glackin and his brother Michael will give last years’ winner Gary Jennings and Rory Kennedy a good hour and 15 minutes of a head start before they fire up their civic on their home event. Seeded in car number 150, the glen men will let the entire field of the rally start at 30 second intervals before they get their countdown to go.Football Football Football: I can’t really start to describe what it was like to interview Michael Glackin this week, As he said himself it was football, football, football in our house, morning noon and night, and to be honest, I had no time for it, When I started working in Joe Bonner’s Engineering years ago on the Pearse Rd. in Letterkenny.I was allowed time off to head out to the Mt. Errigal Hotel just to see the rally cars heading off. I am a life time fan of Austin Mc Hale and was so into the cars that he drove, Chevette’s Manta’s M3’s and Toyotas.I still even have the wing mirror from a Corolla that Mc Hale rolled at the end of the Knockalla Stage one year.Michael mainly rebuilds Mk2 Escorts in his business called “Glackin Fabrications” in Glenfin. Two escort shells are at two different levels of completing and another two are sitting ready to start.Most of Michael’s business comes from Dublin and the Co.Louth area, Michael explains that all the parts can be got new for escorts now. Michael works on rally cars and classic cars for a wide circle of customers. He prepared Manus Kelly’s Mk 2 Escort and made the car unique by building a round tunnel in the car to house the round gearbox which was fitted to the car.So as the Donegal Rally comes around Michael will take the weekend off from building rally cars to enjoying their home event and will be so happy to put their civic over the finishing ramp at the front door of the Mt. Errigal Hotel on Sunday evening.Wheel Rims to wedding rings:Mark Glackin is going to the Donegal Rally since he was 10 years old, his older brother Michael brought him to watch the event, now it’s Mark that’s doing the driving and Michael is sitting on as navigator, Michael also navigated for Manus Kelly at the start of his rallying career.Mark took a year out from rallying last year as he prepared for a big day of a difference, and he married his sweet heart, Ashling Scott.Even when Mark went to buy wheel rims from the son of a local Letterkenny Jewellers, Patrick Mc Callion, He ended up talking with Patrick who then decided to sponsor Mark on the Donegal.Then this year Mark and his wife to be, Ashling were happy to return the good will to Patrick when they bought their engagement and wedding rings and accessories from McCallion Jewellers in Letterkenny.Mark is very thankfull of his sponsors, that make it possible for him to compete on the Donegal Rally , People like Browne’s Autos, Larkin’s of New Mills, Kernan’s Filling Station, Tullygay, The Station House and his own employer Tesco and as the saying goes, every little helps.We’re Hiring: This year Mark is moving from Toyota to Honda, and hiring for the first time. Working with DL Car Hire from Crolly and Michael Bonner, Mark will take delivery of his 180 BHP 1.6 litre civic two days before the Donegal which will give him time to get his sponsors on the car and also get a chance to get a drive in the car before the rally starts.Asking Mark how will two brothers manage stuck in a civic for three days. Ah he said it will be Michael who will loss the temper, but it will be me that caused him to do so.Michael always says on events he ends up as my personal assistant. I don’t want anything sitting loose on my side of the car in case it would fall to the floor and get jammed in between the paddles on the stage.So when I get to the end of a stage I call over to Michael, Hi sir gon and give me over my fags, my phone and my water.Its all in a weekends rallying Mark says and for him its all about taking part in the Donegal rally, I look forward so much to this June weekend, love all the stages, except Knockalla, love the hill climb section but when I get to the top and all I can see out my passenger’s side window is a blue sea down below, I just be glad to see the finishing boards and can get a Silk Cut Purple fired up to relax. This year Knockalla is first thing on Saturday morning, so that will definitely wake me up.Deja Vu:It’s a sure sign that you are getting old when interviewing these rally crews this week I can see the generations that went before them in their eyes.Listening to Jasmine talking about school and interviewing the girl’s uncle, the late John Boyle before the Donegal Rally a couple of years ago in his famous Ford Escort It all brings memories back to me.I also remember my first day at St. Eunan’s College and in particular when I got home.I was interviewed by the Late Manus Boyle the girls grandfather who was digging spuds in Willie Crawford’s fields at the back of my home in Wolfe Tone Place.Manus told me he too was once a student at the same college when he was young. He was a boarder at the college and sat beside my uncle Charlie Coyle. who was a “day boy” which meant Charlie could go home every evening.Manus told me he could see the fields of his home in Manor and wished he could be out working in them and not stuck at the college with all the other scholars.Both Manus Boyle and Finbarr Glackin followed their dream in life in doing what the loved to do.Manus spent his life as a very productive farmer in the Lagan. Glenda Boyle might not remember her grandfather Manus but she has the same drive to follow her dreams, and her success in rallying in England has already brought her driving talent to the surface.Finbarr Glackin had the great belief that Glenswilly could have a great football club and he was lucky enough to see the fruits of his toil producing the best of All Ireland winning players.Michael Glackin may not have the same interest in football that his late father Finbarr had, but Michael is similar in that he is so focused on his life long dream of building and the preservation of beautiful old Ford Escorts and other classic road cars, at his engineering workshop in Glenfin.Here is wishing Glenda and Jasmine and Mark and Michael all the best of Donegal Luck on their home event this weekend.Fuel Watch: Best prices this week for fuel are at Tinney’s in Bonagee with Diesel 114,9 and Petrol 130.9. happy motoring folks!ON THE ROAD AGAIN – RALLY SPECIAL with BRIAN McDAID was last modified: June 16th, 2016 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:Brian McDaidcolumndonegal rallynewsOn The Road AgainSportlast_img read more

DONEGAL TEENAGER KERR SHINES AT BRITISH SUPERBIKE CHAMPIONSHIPS

first_imgKilmacrennan’s Richard Kerr had his best weekend to date at round five of the British Superbike Championships (BSB) at Snetterton in England.The 16 year old finished a superb third place in the first race, and also posted the fastest lap of the race earning him pole position for race two. Richard competes in the ultra competitive Moto Star Class on pure race breed machines and is hotly contested by some of Europe’s finest young riders.Richard had a good solid second race finishing in 8th place. He was running second in the early stages but dropped back after being hit by another machine from behind.Lady luck hadn’t been on Richard’s side in the opening rounds of the series after suffering some mechanical issues. The team can now turn their attention to Thruxton in two weeks time knowing that Richard has the pace and belief to be running right at the front, and with a bit of luck there is absolutely no doubt that the young Kilmacrennan man is capable of getting onto that coveted top step of the podium.DONEGAL TEENAGER KERR SHINES AT BRITISH SUPERBIKE CHAMPIONSHIPS was last modified: July 13th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:british superbike championshipMotorbike Racingthruxtonlast_img read more

REVEALED: CAMPAIGN OF INTIMIDATION IN HOUSEHOLD TAX DISPUTE

first_imgA SINISTER twist to the debate over the Household Charge has led to vandalism and threats in west Donegal, donegaldaily.com can reveal.Some people opposed to the €100 tax have daubed threatening graffiti close to the homes of Fine Gael supporters in Gaoth Dobhair.And vandals have also targeted members of the ‘Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay’ campaign by ripping down anti-tax posters. Can’t Pay Won’t Pay campaign spokesperson Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig has contacted donegaldaily.com to condemn those behind all the incidents.“Up to 50 of our billboards were taken down and damaged in the West Donegal area. I believe these acts of vandalism were carried out in opposition to the success of the Can’t Pay Won’t Pay campaign by political opponents,” he claimed.He went on: “In recent weeks graffiti has been appearing close to the homes of local government and government supporting politicians.“I would like to stress that this graffiti has nothing to do with the campaign nor does the campaign condone such behaviour.” He added: “I call on those responsible to think about the future of our communities, to put party political allegiances aside and make a stand for the future of ourselves and our children.” REVEALED: CAMPAIGN OF INTIMIDATION IN HOUSEHOLD TAX DISPUTE was last modified: April 10th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:REVEALED: CAMPAIGN OF INTIMIDATION IN HOUSEHOLD TAX DISPUTElast_img read more
