President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has urged the government, media organizations, the private sector and their development partners to work together to address issues that remain critical not only to the development of media in Africa but for progress across the continent.The Liberian leader stated that she recognized current efforts to strengthen media in Africa through initiatives to deliver training, improve content production, introduce new financing mechanisms, and promote codes of ethics.President Sirleaf made the comments when she delivered a statement to African media owners and other media stakeholders at the sixth edition of the African Media Leaders Forum (AMLF) conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.The Liberian President noted that the persistence of these problems—especially the lack of respect for the ethics of the profession— posed the greatest threat to the emergence of a free, independent, and responsible media in Africa Using her own country (Liberia) as a case in point, President Sirleaf pointed to the media explosion that followed the return of peace and democracy to her country and stressed that there is a dire need of technical support and assistance in training for journalists. This, she said, can be done by fashioning strong self-regulatory framework, and committing to better practice and professional care while maintaining high ethical standards – the same issues that topped the agenda for discussion at the AMLF.She spoke of her commitment to govern transparently and accountably, to deepen the rule of law, and to protect freedoms and rights of citizens. She said she believed dedication to all of these actions add value and new meaning to Liberian citizenship. To sum it all up, she added, “The role of a responsible, informed, adequately funded, professional, and creative media is paramount”. President Sirleaf’s statement was delivered during the final session of AMLF 13 – “Heads of State Roundtable” that saw media owners’ debate a wide range of issues with the leaders of Ethiopia and Kenya.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Prior to hosting the Allan Cup in 2010 the North Peace Arena was required to undergo a number of upgrades for the tournament as set out by Hockey Canada. At yesterday’s announcement of the World Under 17 Hockey Challenge coming to Fort St. John and Dawson Creek, Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman did not rule out the possibility that further upgrades may come to the facility.She stated that any upgrades are likely to be related to information technology, and while it would be premature to speculate on a price tag, a portion of the cost would likely be covered through various grants.“We did upgrades for the Allan Cup,” Ackerman explained. “Hockey Canada is going to be coming up over the next few days. What we’re looking at is some IT upgrades essentially. We don’t have the numbers yet but there are facility grants available through the Northern Development Initiative Trust that we can look at applying for. A lot of that cost will be looked after.”- Advertisement -The puck will drop on the tournament on October 30 and run through November 7.
0Shares0000Belgian international Marouane Fellaini © AFP/File / Paul ELLISMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Nov 24 – Jose Mourinho admitted Friday he is growing ever more anxious about the prospect of losing Belgian international Marouane Fellaini as the midfielder’s contract talks with Manchester United drag on.The Old Trafford manager, speaking ahead of his side’s Premier League match against Brighton on Saturday, has revealed that he is not involved in the discussions designed to tie the 30-year-old Belgian international to a new, extended deal. Fellaini is understood to want a longer-term contract than the one currently being offered by the United board and rejected one offer, believed to be for two years, in September.Since then, talks appear to have stalled and, in January, Fellaini will be free to talk to foreign clubs as he enters the final six months of his current deal.“Yes,” said Mourinho when asked if he is worried at the prospect of losing Fellaini. “(I have done) nothing, it is a discussion between the player and the board. I’m not involved in contracts… and I respect both.“I respect the player because he has the right, has the right to decide his future and I respect the board because the decisions and the discussions are under control so I just wait, wishing they will have an understanding but it’s out of my control.”Turkish clubs Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray have already declared an interest and are understood to be prepared to offer terms over four years while, previously, Italian clubs Roma and Napoli have also been linked with him.Fellaini has prospered as much as any player under the 18 months of Mourinho’s management, having been transformed from a player who was unpopular with Old Trafford supporters into something of a cult favourite with fans.– Zlatan stays on bench –Mourinho has admitted that another fans’ favourite, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, is still some way from being able to start a game after his dramatic return from career-threatening knee surgery.The 36-year-old Swedish star came on as a late sub against Newcastle and Basel this week but is still working his way back to full match fitness.Mourinho said: “No he is not ready. Step by step, minute after minute, match after match.“It is easy to play him if the team is losing for the last 15 or 20 minutes, or if the team is winning for the last 15 or 20 minutes.“His qualities are adapted. You don’t play him only if the team is losing or winning. He is a player who’s easy to bring into the game so normally he is going to have this period of 15, 20. And one day he will feel he is physically ready.“His impact on the pitch is always positive, he’s a good influence, doesn’t change if he’s playing or not playing. He’s one more option for us and it’s impossible for (Romelu) Lukaku to play every match, every minute like he’s doing.”At the start of an eight-day period in which United play Brighton, Watford and Arsenal in the Premier League, Mourinho has called on his supporters to show patience as they look to eat into Manchester City’s commanding lead at the top of the table.“We haven’t reached 50 percent of the season so let’s be calm. We have four competitions to play and let’s go step by step, match after match,” he said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2While still a high school freshman, Miner, 38, made up his mind to join the force. He hopes to rekindle that early enthusiasm for the CHP as head of the Santa Fe Springs office. “It’s easy to look at the negative things about a job and forget what brought you to this profession in the first place,” he said. Miner came to the station from the CHP’s Santa Maria office, where he worked as commander for four months. Before that, he worked for four years at the San Luis Obispo office as a lieutenant in charge of several units and investigative teams. Originally from Fresno, Miner describes his career as “nomadic.” He has worked in East and Central Los Angeles and also the Ventura area during his 15-year career. He is married with two children, and is planning to move to the area from Santa Maria soon. For now, he is living at a hotel and driving home on weekends. One of the first things he did when he became captain of the Santa Fe Springs office was paint his office in the colors of the CHP – blue and beige. He is planning to decorate his office with photographs and models of vintage CHP vehicles. Miner said he wants to be a moral booster for the station, which has 85 officers. “I tell officers to remember what brought them to the department in the first place – the honor and pride you felt the first day,” said Miner. “Your little piece of the world will be a little cleaner with you in it.” firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SANTA FE SPRINGS – Patrolling the highways is in Daniel Miner’s blood. “I’m a Highway Patrol kid, born and raised,” said Miner, who recently took over as captain of the California Highway Patrol’s Santa Fe Springs office. Miner is following in the footsteps of his father, who also served as a CHP captain. His father, who worked in Fresno, retired three years ago, but his career served as a model for Miner. “Because I grew up in the job, it’s what I was exposed to and what I knew. I could see that it carried honor and that you can help people,” he said.
