‘Get Tested Before Treatment of Malaria’

first_imgOver 600 people, mainly women and children, benefited from a formal malaria awareness campaign held at the Logan Town General Market over the weekend under the theme: “Get Tested before Treatment.” The “Get Tested before Treatment on Malaria” awareness campaign began in Clara Town in December 2013 and was also held in West Point in January-2014.The outreach is aimed at clarifying that not every fever is malaria; therefore, people must get tested before taking (malaria) treatment. If tested positive, a patient should only take the new globally confirmed malaria tablet called Artemisini-based Combination Therapy (ACT).The Coordinator of the Private Sector ACT of Mentor Initiative (MI), Madam Julie Pontarollo said the ACT is approved by the World Health Organization and the Liberian Government to treat ‘simple malaria cases.’According to the Madam Pontarollo, “ACT is sold in private drug (medicine) stores on Bushrod Island. Dispensers, physicians, and nurses, who are assigned in various drug stores have already been trained to administer both the test and treatment to patients.”She noted that the 4-year pilot project is implemented by Mentor Initiative in partnership with the Liberian Government through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare funded by Comic Relief, based in the UK.Madam Pantarollo revealed the ‘diagnose test’ is L$20 and if positive, the complete dosage for adults is L$35, while it is L$25.00 for children.She announced that in March the campaign would extend to New Kru Town, the fourth slum community on Bushrod Island.Commissioner Gooding Carlos, on behalf of the people of Logan Town, thanked the Mentor Initiative and Ministry of Health and Social Welfare for the robust awareness campaign aimed at getting people tested before treatment and taking of the new ACT drugs instead of other outdated malaria medicines.The Commissioner urged her people to get use to sleeping under treated mosquito nets to avoid getting malaria instill of making tearing the nets into bath scrub popularly known as a ‘saphoe’ or siphon.A Community Health Volunteer (CHV) Billy S. Toe, Jr., said over the years around 40 CHV’s have been helping the Health Ministry to create awareness on malaria from door-to-door, and through focus groups.The Deputy Director for Community Health Services Division at the Ministry of the Health Ministry, Daniel S.M. Wessih, Jr., praised the Mentor Initiative for the partnership with the Ministry to tackle malaria in the country and warned community dwellers to against the selling of the freely distributed treated mosquito net.The experienced health worker also added his voice to those advising the public to get tested before being treated.One of the participants, Lucy Bartieh, expressed her satisfaction over the cultural performances and a drama that depicted the ‘Get tested before treatment message’ and said the message of the new malaria drug, ACT, beyond her understanding.“So you mean that now ACT is the best medicine for malaria, I hope it’s not bitter like chloroquine,” she laughed.However, a cross section of participants who were also present after the program said they understood the message from the campaign and proudly repeated the slogan just taught to them: “I Got Malaria. How Do you know?” “Get tested before treatment!” “Not Every Fever is Malaria!”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Lawyer supports tampering allegation

first_imgLOS ANGELES – Prosecution claims that Phil Spector’s defense concealed key evidence in an actress’ shooting death were given surprise support Thursday when a lawyer who once worked for the record producer said she saw famed criminalist Henry Lee pick up a fingernail-sized object at the scene. The testimony, at a hearing outside the jury’s presence, contradicts Lee’s official report. Prosecutors say part of an acrylic fingernail missing from Lana Clarkson’s right hand could show whether she was in a struggle when she died, but defense lawyers have claimed for more than three years that the nail does not exist. The prosecution is expected to ask for severe sanctions against the defense if it is shown that lawyers purposely withheld evidence in the Feb. 3, 2003, shooting at Spector’s home. Spector’s murder trial is under way but jurors have been off this week because lead defense attorney Bruce Cutler called in sick. The lawyer being questioned was Sara Caplan, an associate of Robert Shapiro, the first lawyer to represent Spector. They also worked together on the O.J. Simpson trial. She said she had no idea what became of the item. Lee has said in his official report that the only things he recovered were two white threads and some carpet fiber taken for samples. Spector, 67, whose “Wall of Sound” transformed rock `n’ roll in the 1960s, has pleaded not guilty in the case, and his lawyers have argued the actress shot herself. Law clerk Greg Diamond, who first testified on Wednesday, set off a court fight after he came forward to say that a small white piece of evidence was collected at the scene by Caplan and shown to the entire defense team. Diamond, who once worked for Shapiro, said forensic pathologist Michael Baden handled the object and said he thought it was a tooth fragment. “I would never touch an object at an alleged crime scene ever,” Caplan said. “I have been a criminal defense lawyer over 20 years. I know not to contaminate evidence … I value my ethical responsibilities.” Baden, who flew in from New York for the hearing Wednesday, said he didn’t see any such object at the scene and didn’t see Caplan pick up anything. Diamond said that before he went to prosecutors with his information he called a number of news organizations including the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Web-based The Smoking Gun and Court TV, but none of the media organizations published his material.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Caplan said under questioning by defense lawyer Roger Rosen that she was part of the defense delegation that went to Spector’s home a day after the shooting, after authorities completed their evidence gathering at the scene. Lee was part of the team and all were scrutinizing the foyer area where Clarkson was shot, looking for anything that might have been overlooked by law enforcement. “I pointed out a few things to Henry,” said Caplan, recalling one white object. “He had on rubber gloves and had a tweezer. He said, `Might be interesting.”‘ Lee picked it up and put it in a vial, Caplan said. Asked to describe the object, she held up the thumb of her right hand and said, “About the size of my fingernail.” She added, “It was flat with uneven edges, a solid object.” last_img

Tottenham line-up v Chicago Fire: Pochettino to unleash the kids?

first_img Ryan Fredericks Tottenham will complete their pre-season tour of North America on Sunday as they face Chicago Fire at Toyota Park.Spurs have already drawn 3-3 with Seattle Sounders and beaten Toronto 3-2, with Erik Lamela scoring twice in the latter fixture, and they now face their final challenge on American soil.MLS side Chicago currently have Lilywhites youngster Grant Ward among their ranks, and they won’t be a roll over for Mauricio Pochettino’s men, but the Argentine manager may well turn to some of the younger members of his own touring part for the game.Ryan Fredericks, who spent some of last season on loan at Millwall, could be given more playing time along with Zeki Fryers in the back four, while Tom Carroll could get the nod in central midfield again.Elsewhere, former Barcelona youngster Cristian Ceballos might be handed his first start of the tour following two exciting appearances from the bench and Harry Kane is likely to replace Roberto Soldado up front.Is this how Tottenham will look against Chicago Fire?Spurs fans, which youngsters do you have high hopes for?

New community center proves popular

first_imgNEWHALL – If there was any doubt a bigger community center was overdue in Newhall, the 750 people who in one week nabbed more than half of the new $7 million center’s openings all but erased it. Many took a number and waited for up to two hours to claim a free membership, enroll in the free after-school program and low-cost classes. Eighty percent of the classes are full and many popular ones have wait lists. “I think we could build a building twice the size and fill it up in two weeks,” said Hope Horner, the Santa Clarita Community Center’s supervisor. “We had anywhere from 125 to 225 sign-ups a day.” Sign-ups were first come, first serve. Horner anticipated the rush and expects maximum capacity – 1,200 memberships – to be filled by Thursday. On Jan. 21, the center’s operations moved from a rundown 7,000-square-foot warehouse to the 17,000-square-foot facility across from the Jan Heidt Newhall Metrolink Station. The center’s $491,000 annual budget is covered by the city’s general fund, and a number of sponsors help underwrite events and miscellaneous costs. Horner estimated 75 percent of the participants are first-timers who live in the adjacent neighborhood and Valle Del Oro. Membership cards bearing a photo on the front and bar code on the back will be scanned with each visit, helping Horner track the hot and not-so-hot offerings. Sports programs, art classes, an adult aerobics class, English-as-a-Second-Language classes and teen groups have topped the popularity list so far. Seventeen kids are on the wait list for the karate class and 18 adults are waiting for dropouts in the morning ESL class.

first_imgUp to 4 in 5 child car seats are incorrectly fitted across Co Donegal and nationally.Now the Road Safety Authority (RSA) has introduced a new, free service in response to the frightening statistic which can result in serious injury or worse, a fatality in the event of a collision.Since October 2013, the RSA’s ‘Check it Fits’ Service has checked over 8,000 child car seats and restraints in Ireland. Of these, 82% required some adjustment. Worryingly, 75% of seats required a major adjustment, of which 4% were deemed not fit for purpose and condemned, meaning they could have caused injury or even death in the event of a collision.The ‘Check it Fits’ Service is a full-time, nationwide, free expert service which aims to put parent’s, grandparent’s and guardian’s minds at ease that their child’s car seat is safely and securely fitted in their car.Today the RSA roadshow will be at Kelly’s Centra at Mountaintop in Letterkenny to make sure you know how to fit your child’s car seat once and for all.Where: Centra, Mountain Top, Letterkenny When: Tuesday 6th October between 10:00am – 5:30pmIt’s fast, it’s easy and it’s CAR-SEAT FITTING AS FIGURES SHOW 80% FITTED WRONG IN DONEGAL was last modified: October 5th, 2015 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:CAR SEAT FITTINGDONGALKelly’s CentraletterkennyMountaintoplast_img read more

Uganda Cranes striker pens three year deal at Egyptian side Smouha SC

first_imgDerrick Nsibambi (center) after signing the deal at Smouha SCUganda Cranes striker Derrick Nsibambi has completed a move to Egyptian Premier League side Smouha SC according to reports in Egypt.The former KCCA FC striker who flew out of the country on Sunday is believed to have put pen to paper on a three year deal.He joins two other Ugandan footballers who play in Egypt including his former team mate Isaac Muleme (Alassiouty sport) and Cranes vice captain Hassan Wasswa Mawanda (El-Geish).Before the start of the just concluded Uganda Premier League, Nsibambi was rumoured to have been courted by a un named Egyptian club but KCCA turned down their offer.Nsibambi has been struggling for form lately and has seen his starting role at KCCA FC taken up by teenage sensation Shaban Muhammad especially in the second half of the season.At the time of his departure from KCCA, head coach Mike Mutebi had come out and openly criticized him for his lack of consistency throughout the season.Nsibambi has scored seven league goals for KCCA this season.Whether he makes the grade and turns out to be a more prolific striker than he has been especially last season, remains to be seen. But his ability can not be doubted in the eyes of every Ugandan football can.Comments Tags: Derrick NsibamabiKCCA FClast_img read more

What are the odds of Fulham getting promoted this season?

first_imgIt was an unhappy season back in the Premier League for Fulham, but the chances of an immediate return to the top flight look good.Casinos often offer sports books with competitive odds for football and that’s the case at, who are offering a no deposit bonus.And if you’re tempted to place a bet on who’ll win promotion from the Championship this season, the smart money could well be on Fulham, who will surely be among the division’s heavyweights.The Whites generally range from 3-1 to 6-1 to make it back to the Premier League at the first time of asking – they’re rated as one of the favourites and with good reason.Aleksandar The GreatStriker Aleksandar Mitrovic – so crucial to Fulham’s promotion the season before last – was widely tipped to leave Craven Cottage this summer following the club’s relegation back to the Championship.Several clubs were linked with the Serbian, who seemed certain to move on. His decision to commit his future to Fulham by signing a new long-term contract was a major boost for the club – and led to the odds of a promotion being shortened.Mitrovic is a proven Championship goalscorer and can surely be counted upon to get 20-plus goals during the coming season. It’s hard to see how defenders at that level will cope with him.Awesome front threeAs if Mitrovic staying wasn’t an ominous enough sign for the rest of the Championship, he has been joined by Ivan Cavaleiro and Anthony Anthony Knockaert, giving Fulham a front three that will definitely strike fear into defenders. Cavaleiro, signed from Wolves, was previously outstanding in the Championship, as Knockaert was for Brighton. So there’s more to Fulham’s attack than Mitrovic – much more.Parker’s the right manThe decision to show faith in Scott Parker could ultimately make all the difference. He was unable to halt the slide while in caretaker charge last season but the club rightly judged that the rot had set in long before he took over and that he ought to be trusted with the manager’s job.Parker has urged the club to make significant changes in order to win their Premier League place back and the Fulham hierarchy have listened – and massively backed him in the transfer market.His signings look shrewd and his calm sense of what needs to be done is exactly what Fulham needed after the disappointment of relegation. It won’t be easy, but the chances of them bouncing straight back to the Premier League look good.
