Before the meet began, the IAAF held ceremonies for the 2013 U.S. women’s 4×400-meter relay team and others who lost to runners — mostly from Russia — who were later found to have doped.“Awkward and bittersweet were definitely the way to describe it,” Natasha Hastings said while holding her new gold medal.But better than nothing, which is what Jenn Suhr will get.America’s top pole vaulter won the Olympic gold medal in the same stadium five years ago and was looking for an encore. She didn’t clear the bar in three attempts at 4.55 meters, and was gone before the medals round.“I don’t want to think about this,” she said. “I walked into the stadium and had tears in my eyes for good memories. I don’t want to leave disappointed.”Bolt also has great memories of London.In 2012, he completed his second of three Olympic sweeps. Before those races, he put his finger to his lips, as if to shush the doubters, many of whom saw Blake beat him twice earlier that year and thought there was a changing of the guard in store.Blake isn’t the threat he once was.And though the seven men who will line up against him Saturday night may disagree, the only person who may be able to knock off Bolt is Bolt himself. LeBron James scores 31 points, Lakers beat Rockets His time — 10.07 seconds — didn’t matter.Neither did the fact that the evening’s best drama — and biggest cheers — belonged not to him, but to British distance runner Mo Farah, who got tripped and nearly jostled off the track twice on the last lap but still came away with his third straight world title at 10,000 meters.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

But overall, I’m glad I got to push myself, blow the cobwebs out. I’m feeling OK, but it wasn’t a great race.” McGregor blasts Cerrone in 40 seconds in UFC return In truth, it looked like almost all of his 100-meter runs have over the years. He is 6-foot-5, more than a head taller than anyone else on the track and, as usual, he looked like a baby giraffe trying to gain his footing as he clambered out of the start.“I just sat there small and tried to beat him at whatever point in the race I could beat him,” said Warren Fraser, the 5-foot-8 veteran from the Bahamas, who lined up to Bolt’s right and kept things even for the first 12 strides.At 50 meters, Bolt started pulling ahead. At 75, he was looking to his left, where he saw nobody. At 90, he was shutting things down to coast to the finish line.Britain’s Mo Farah celebrates after winning the gold medal in the Men’s 10,000m final during the World Athletics Championships in London, Friday, Aug. 4, 2017. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip)Bolt had some fun afterward, flashing the thumbs-up sign to the crowd and toying with the hedgehog mascot, who played with the Jamaican’s shoes — one gold, one purple — before the champion headed off for his lengthy round of interviews.Earlier in the week, he essentially guaranteed a win. Few could disagree, and when the man thought to be his best competition, Andre De Grasse of Canada, dropped out with an injury, the sentiment only grew. Among those who might challenge him include Jamaican teammate Yohan Blake, American Christian Coleman — he of the much-discussed 4.12 second 40-yard dash that he posted to social media — and Bolt’s longtime challenger, Justin Gatlin.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Jamaica’s Usain Bolt greets his fans before a men’s 100m heat during the World Athletics Championships in London Friday, Aug. 4, 2017.

Stop the Bickering Now: It Can Do No One Any Good

first_imgEver since Mr. Christopher Neyor published his Open Letter to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf last week, there has been a torrent (flood, violent flow) of accusations and counter accusations among government officials and even sponsored by the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism.We think this is most unfortunate, for it is tantamount to “washing our dirty clothes” in public, which is totally unnecessary.  Only people in slums, who have no washing facilities within their homes, do that—and most do so in the back, not the front yard.But here we are—Mr. Neyor and the government itself, spilling it all out there, on the front pages of the newspapers, and on the airwaves, too!Whom is this hurting? Not Mr. Neyor, who has already, by his Open Letter, opened himself up to a barrage of revelations, criticisms and attacks, true or untrue; not President Sirleaf, who has already reacted in a somewhat restrained fashion—only because she was approached for her side of the story.  No, it is hurting Liberia and her government. We say that because here we had critical negotiations between two sovereign governments, Kuwait and Liberia, having taken place, only see some of these exposed in public—and not simply that, but exposed in a vicious and acrimonious manner.Question: When will we ever be able to get the Kuwaitis to sit with us again in any negotiations for any reason?  But doing what we have done, we have created in the minds of many governments and international institutions serious apprehensions about how serious, sensible, mature and considerate we are when dealing with development partners.Let us return to Mr. Neyor’s Open Letter and reflect on what the Daily Observer and other parts of the Liberian media have been arguing about the importance of transparency in government.We have constantly frowned upon shady deals in government circles, of many GOL Ministries and Agencies of not coming clean to the media and the public, yea the Liberian people, about what government is doing. This seems to have been going on from the very beginning of the operations of this most vital sector, petroleum and the company that manages it, the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL).  That is why it was possible, in the very beginning, for one Nigerian businessman to walk away with US$250 million without investing a cent in Liberia.  All he did was to buy one of the oil blocks, then resell it to Chevron and walk away with that staggering amount, made off of Liberia’s resources, without the Liberian people knowing anything about it.  The President has had to higher several persons to head both the National Oil Company itself and its Board of Directors.  After she removed Dr. Foday Kromah she appointed Mr. Neyor and after him Dr. Randolph McClain. As for the Board, it was first headed, under Ellen, by Mr. Clemenceau Urey, who was summarily removed to install her son Robert Sirleaf.  That appointment was greeted with an avalanche of local and international criticism, but she remained stoic about it until she could no longer withstand it, and replaced him with her Legal Advisor, Counselor Seward M. Cooper.It seems that even up to this day the public has little knowledge of the workings of NOCAL.  This newspaper has reliably learned that there is still very serious speculation about exactly WHO is running NOCAL, even as we know that Dr. McClain is still its President and Counselor Cooper its Board Chair.  Is there, as is being talked about behind the scenes, an unseen hand calling the shots at NOCAL?We have indeed heard at least one name, but for legal considerations, we dare not mention it.Here again we reassert the need for transparency and accountability in government, to save the President herself and her government from the exact same situation that gave rise to Chris Neyor’s Open Letter.Here again we are confronted with stark reality of the Biblical dictum: “The truth shall make you free.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Adieu, Dr. Brisbane and Other Ebola Victims:

first_imgThe Liberian nation was deeply saddened when, amidst the subdued celebration of our 167th Independence Anniversary, we learned in the early afternoon of July 26 that one of our most senior and most distinguished medical practitioners had fallen victim to Ebola.Dr. Samuel Brisbane spent a considerable portion of his career at the Firestone Medical Center where, from 1992 to 2003, he served as medical director.  He   later transferred to the John  F. Kennedy Medical Center (JFK), where he rendered services based on his nearly a half century of experience as a general practitioner.  He had already begun his medical practice at the JFK when he returned from medical studies in Germany at the turn of the 1970s.In his long career Dr. Brisbane trained hundreds Liberian medical students as well as many from foreign lands, who have gone on themselves to become medical practitioners.In his passing, Liberia has lost an outstanding medical doctor, who was in good health, ready and able to continue for many more years to come  serving his country in the  vital field of medicine.  His unswerving commitment was doggedly maintained when so many of the younger doctors he impacted have since the 1980 coup d’etat and the outbreak of the civil war sought greener pastures abroad.  Dr. Brisbane remained on the ground throughout the war making, at great sacrifices to fulfill his invaluable services to his people.President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf led the nation and people last Saturday in paying tribute to all our health and medical personnel who have paid the supreme sacrifice in service to their compatriots since the outbreak of Ebola.And these include the widow and family of Dr. Sam M. Muhumuza, the Ugandan doctor who also lost his life last week treating Ebola patients in Caldwell, Monterrado County.  We think it was appropriate for President Sirleaf to honor his widow, Mrs. Muhumuza,  during the Independence Day ceremonies last Saturday.Meanwhile, the deadly virus continues to take its toll.  Yesterday the Daily Observer Health Correspondent, Alaskai Moore Johnson, reported that Bomi Hospital in Tubmanburg, Bomi County had been shut down because the virus had affected the county’s Health Services Officer and his entire  family of 10.The US-based humanitarian group, Samaritan Purse, reported yesterday one of its medical staff, Dr. Kent Brantly, is undergoing intensive medical care after testing positive to the virus.  Also, the Sudan Interior Mission (SIM), founders of Radio Station ELWA and ELWA Hospital, reported that one of its staff in Liberia, Nancy Write Bol, personnel coordinator at ELWA, is also infected.We at the Daily Observer join in extending our deepest condolences to all the affected  families.  We wish all who have contracted the virus, by God’s grace, a speedy and complete recovery.The President, in her Independence Day Message last Saturday, declared a state of national emergency in Liberia, and ordered Liberia’s borders closed.  Suggestions to this effect had been earlier made, but the government felt that somehow the virus would be contained.  Now that it is spreading almost like wild fire, something drastic needed to be done.The Ministry of Health and Social Welfare has been proactive in putting in place measures to prevent the spread of the disease.Today, many banks and other business houses are requiring all visitors, before entering their premises, to wash their hands with soap, Clorox solution and other  detergents.  We urge ALL other businesses, public buildings, schools and other educational institutions and even homes throughout the country to do the same.  Before one enters a yard, a gate or a building, there should be water, soap or detergents available to enable all to wash hands before entrance.Yesterday, the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company, one of the nation’s leading and most forward looking public corporations, joined in the battle against Ebola.  The LPRC Board of Directors allocated US$75,000 to assist the Health and Social Welfare Ministry to acquire more gloves and other gears to protect the people from Ebola.We applaud the LPRC for this magnanimous gesture and call on all other para-statals as well as all businesses and concessions, such as Firestone, ArcelorMittal, Sime Darby, etc., to pitch in by contributing to the fight against this incurable and deadly virus which, as never before, threatens the entire Liberian landscape and far beyond.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

English must ‘stop pointing fingers’ at FIFA, urges presidential candidate

first_imgJerome Champagne has called on the English FA to stop “pointing fingers” and reconcile with FIFA to help reform world football’s governing body.The Frenchman, a presidential candidate in the last election, is ready to challenge for the top job again after Sepp Blatter sensationally announced he will step down in the wake of a corruption scandal.But Champagne insists if there is to be real change at FIFA, then the FA, and the rest of the European bodies, need to stop the sniping and find a way to work with the organisation.“If I run again [as president], I will call upon the English football community to engage in the reform instead of just pointing fingers,” he said, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“We need English football to change FIFA. English football has done so much for football but we need to work hand in hand to develop the game.“We need to find a system where we are going to reconcile Europe and the rest of the world.“The inequalities inside world football are absolutely appalling and staggering.“We have now the 20 wealthiest clubs [in Europe] with a cumulative turnover of €£6.2billion a year, while 99 per cents of the leagues, FA’s and clubs are suffering.“We need more solidarity. There is a very strong resentment around the rest of the world to clubs in western Europe. If we want to find the right solutions for football, we need to reconcile.”last_img read more

EMBATTLED PAT THE COPE SAYS HE WILL FIGHT TO RETAIN DONEGAL’S VOICE IN EUROPE

first_imgPat The Cope Gallagher has appealed to Donegal voters to get behind him after a new opinion poll suggests he has a fight on his hands to retain his seat in the European Parliament.Pat the Cope Gallagher.The Irish Independent poll suggests that Sinn Fein’s Matt Carthy will top the vote with 17%, followed by Fianna Fail Senator Thomas Byrne.The remaining two seats would appear to be a battle between sitting Fine Gael MEPs Jim Higgins and Mairead McGuinness with 11% and Luke Ming Flanagan on 12%. Although it is early days yet, the polls suggests that the veteran Donegal politician is on 9% with a tough road ahead of him.But Pat The Cope Gallagher told Donegal Daily that he is prepared for the fight of his political life.However, he said he could not do it without the support of the voters of Co Donegal.“I have given my life to Donegal politics and now I am up against it. Donegal needs a voice in Europe and I am determined to be that voice. “We need a voice at the table as funding from Europe continues to be handed down and I am determined to be that voice to ensure that the people of Donegal are looked after,” he said. EMBATTLED PAT THE COPE SAYS HE WILL FIGHT TO RETAIN DONEGAL’S VOICE IN EUROPE was last modified: April 26th, 2014 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:donegalEuropefundingMEPPat The Cope Gallagherlast_img read more
