Without a smile. Without happiness. And they did it.“I felt they were a bit like they don’t know if I like the music in the dressing room.“The music at the training ground was low. Maybe this guy doesn’t allow or doesn’t like.“But the dressing room in the week is their home. They can do what they want.“When you go away, the music after the game I like. A victory is something that you have to value. It’s hard to win matches.“The music was loud. I don’t care what music it is.

The Dele of a couple of years ago, who impressed not just England but the world.”2Dele’s superb flick into Son’s path helped create Moura’s goal.Jose said: “It was in front of me.

“When Haaland arrived at Molde he was a kid and he was not good”

first_imgStill, they did not always trust him but on July 1 two years ago, he cleared the doubts of his teammates against Brann. “That week he did not score a goal during training and we laughed at him but, the coach decided to start him. We thought we could not play with him as a forward and, after a few minutes, he had already scored four goals, “he says.That match, belonging to matchday 15 of the Norwegian League, played poker in less than half an hour. In the first, he left the goalkeeper with oriented control and defined, in the second, he sat the defender with a pass and won one on one, the third was a tracing of the first and the fourth was a penalty. The first big day of a short but already successful career. As a professional, Erling Haaland has scored a total of 61 goals in 88 matches.

Health workers build skillset via partnership

first_imgTo better understand the roles of other medical professionals, healthcare workers were on Wednesday facilitated in a workshop to build collaboration between these stakeholders to improve the health sector by learning from them.PAHO representative,Paul EdwardsThe two-day workshop was facilitated by the Department of Medical Sciences and saw participation from the Pan-American Health Organisation. The aim is to embark upon an Inter-Professional Education and Collaborative Practice in Guyana.Inter-Professional Education (IPE) is generally defined as two or more professionals learning about each other’s practices to improve health outcomes. This will materialise throughout the engagements to develop a practice-ready workforce.Public Health MinisterVolda LawrenceRepresentative of PAHO, Paul Edwards recognised that a fragmented healthcare contributes to the inability to service all medical needs. When individuals discuss their work with other persons, it also helps with leadership and the ability to digest new ways of addressing problems. Furthermore, the prevalence of complex health complications requires input from more than one professional.“Many health systems throughout the world are fragmented. That is a fact also here in Guyana to a certain extent and therefore struggle to manage on health needs. Present and future workforce are tasked with providing health services in the phase of increasing complex health issues,” Edwards reiterated.Meanwhile, Dean of the Medical Sciences Faculty at the University of Guyana, Dr Emmanuel Cummings stated that the institution has somewhat implemented joint collaboration between different medical fields.“Each healthcare professional is given an opportunity to show his or her work and importance because each one of them do contribute in their own way, in their own speciality, in their own training to universal healthcare coverage,” the Dean highlighted.Bridging the gap between these healthcare units requires data to prove that it is indeed working. This was shared by Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence, who insisted that preparations must be made for the oil industry and the demands which will be presented.“The health sector has a dynamic role to play as our country prepares for the economic thrust that will soon take place with the advent of the oil and gas sector. The faster we incorporate and implement IPE into our health agenda, the better positioned our health sector will be to respond to the demands that are upcoming in our society.”The Minister added, “We must remember that our ultimate goal envisions universal health coverage for all. Everyone, everywhere with no one left behind, and it is my belief that we can draw up the competencies inherited in each health discipline. Then we will be able to maximise our resources to provide a comprehensive health package.”Guyana has submitted proposals for the implementation of an IPE action plan. It is one of 19 countries within the region to acknowledge the benefits of these partnerships.last_img read more

McCain stresses experience, vision as he seeks to revive troubled campaign

first_imgPORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) – It wasn’t supposed to be this way. John McCain was the presumptive Republican front-runner, the next in line for the nomination in a party that historically respects hierarchy. Now, he’s trying to revive his troubled campaign. He is making the case for his candidacy by stressing his decades of experience in wartime and Washington and claiming he has the will to make tough, and sometimes unpopular, choices to heal the nation’s woes. “I am qualified. I am ready to serve. I need no on-the-job training. And I have the vision and capability,” the four-term Arizona senator, ex-Navy pilot and former Vietnam prisoner of war, said Wednesday after formally declaring his second attempt to win the White House. A loser in 2000 to George W. Bush, McCain chose to officially enter the presidential race in New Hampshire – home of the primary that marked his political high point of his previous bid. He selected Prescott Park, which sits across the Piscataqua River from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. As McCain talked of the nation’s challenges at home and abroad, the shipyard served as a backdrop and a reminder of his military past. “I know how to fight and how to make peace. I know who I am and what I want to do,” he said in his speech. “I’m not running for president to be somebody, but to do something; to do the hard but necessary things, not the easy and needless things.” He repeated his pitch later in Manchester, N.H., standing under an umbrella as rain pelted an enthusiastic crowd of a few hundred. When a protester interrupted, McCain diverted from the script. “This is what free speech is all about!” he shouted, drawing cheers when he invoked the state’s motto: “Live free or die!” He then headed to South Carolina and in coming days will appear in Iowa, Nevada and Arizona as part of a four-day campaign tour. Simply a formality, the events did, however, give McCain an opportunity to lay out his vision for the country’s future and jump start his campaign after months of struggle. He had spent years building an unrivaled national organization and positioning himself as the inevitable GOP nominee – only to see his campaign falter. “It’s John’s last chance to make a first impression again,” said Ken Duberstein, a White House chief of staff under President Reagan. “He has to wipe the slate clean from the last several months. That’s easier said than done, but I think he has the chance to do it.” McCain’s popularity has fallen in national polls; he trails former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. He came in a disappointing third in fundraising and cash-on-hand among Republicans in the first test. Rival Mitt Romney, in single digits in most polls, finished first. McCain revamped his finance operation and trimmed staff as a result. He has been dogged by a few verbal gaffes, an ever-present danger of his straight-talking persona. He’s perhaps forever linked to the Iraq war as the top pitchman for Bush’s troop increase. His popularity has taken a hit as public support for the four-year-old conflict has waned. And, despite his pitch as a “common sense conservative,” many core Republicans whose backing will be crucial in the GOP primaries still don’t trust him or view him as loyal because of his willingness to challenge the president and the party. In some places, lingering resentment of McCain from the bruising 2000 nomination fight still exists. On his campaign bus, McCain shrugged off his recent woes as the normal ups and downs of a campaign. “I’m very happy with where we are,” he said. For all his difficulties, McCain does run a strong second in national polls and he has narrowed the gap with Giuliani in recent weeks. He continues to be competitive with the ex-mayor in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. He has deep campaign structures in those early voting states and has collected endorsements from key people in each. And, now, he has his message – that he has the background and the will to fix the country’s problems and lead the nation amid a host of challenges. “This is a new day,” said Scott Reed, a Republican consultant who ran Bob Dole’s campaign in 1996. “This is a chance for McCain to rebrand his candidacy, remind the American people what they like about him and get back on the offense.” “He has now switched to an optimistic future look, which is exactly what voters want,” Reed said. Campaign aides viewed the announcement as the real start of his campaign, confident that Republican primary voters ultimately will embrace McCain as a conservative consistent on issues important to core GOP voters – and a strong and capable leader in serious times. “We face formidable challenges, but I’m not afraid of them. I’m prepared for them,” a somber and, at times, intense McCain said. “I know how the military works, what it can do, what it can do better, and what it should not do. I know how Congress works, and how to make it work for the country and not just the re-election of its members,” he said, drawing on his nearly two dozen years in the military – almost six of them as a prisoner in Vietnam – and two dozen more on Capitol Hill. Seeking to turn a potential weakness, his age, into a strength, the 70-year-old who could be the oldest first-term president added: “I’m not the youngest candidate. But I am the most experienced.” He also appeared to try to separate himself from Bush’s legacy, offering a sharp critique of the country’s problems – from the dire financial outlook of Social Security and Medicare to U.S. dependence on foreign oil to substandard health care for veterans. Then, he offered a vow, oft-repeated in his speech: “That’s not good enough for America. And when I’m president, it won’t be good enough for me.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

The Prince George Fire Centre’s plan for controlling the ongoing Mt. McAllister wildfire

first_img“This fire has been changing hourly, basically we are expecting to have a large burning day just like we did yesterday,” Information Officer, Jill Kelsh said,Kelsh says the fire had reached 20,000 hectares in size yesterday, resulting in an Evacuation Alert by the Peace River Regional District and most recently, an Evacuation Order by the District of Hudson’s Hope.Kelsh also says the dry weather is acting as fuel to the fire, resulting in an ‘extreme’ fire danger rating in many of the regions. The lack of rain and precipitation means the moisture in the air we usually experience in the evenings is not present, making firefighting efforts more challenging.- Advertisement -“We’re doing everything we can to make sure (residents) are protected and our number one priority is life and property,” Kelsh said. “We’re working very hard and we’ve been working around the clock to make sure we are doing everything we can,” Kelsh concluded.last_img read more
