ABIC Gets U.S. IOM Membership

first_imgThe Angie Brooks International Centre (ABIC), a nongovernmental organization focused on protecting the rights of women and youth empowerment has been recognised as a member to serve on the Multi-National Commission of the United States Institute of Medicine (IOM).The IOM is the health arm of the prestigious U.S. National Academy of Sciences.The commission, which includes 18 experts as commissioners, were drawn from diverse disciplines around the world.The commissioners will collect evidence, deliberate, and deliver a comprehensive report in time for the January 2016 World Health Assembly Executive Board meeting.Cllr. Yvette Chesson-Wureh, ABIC Women’s Empowerment, Leadership Development, International Peace and Security Establishment Coordinator, made the disclosure recently when she returned from the U.S.She said Liberia stands to benefit a lot from the IOM, “because as an establishing coordinator of ABIC Women’s Empowerment…I will ensure through the members’ collective and tireless efforts that the voices of Liberians are heard in order to prepare the country for any other health epidemic. What I want from my people is to work along with me and be prepared to prevent any future disease outbreak,” she said,The New York Times has described the IOM as the most esteemed and authoritative advertiser on issues of health and medicine, which tend to transform medical thinking around the world.The ABIC has been actively involved in many initiatives for the eradication of Ebola virus disease (EVD) including the provision of legal advice, participating in policy determination; community engagement and mediation; support to Liberian doctors, as well as anti-Ebola awareness campaigns, etc.The organization was actively involved in the installation of hygiene stations and distribution of food and non-food items in Montserrado and other hot-zone counties.ABIC and partners have successfully and tirelessly worked with both rural and urban Liberians, including market women and motorcyclists, to raise and sustain awareness on the EVD and promote practices to prevent and stop the virus.The IOM is embarking on this mission to manage a multi-national commission to recommend a new global architecture for mitigating the threat of epidemic infectious diseases. This task is being undertaken as a result of two planning meetings that included among others, the president of the World Bank, the president of the Rockefeller Foundation, and the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO). The initiative will build on the lessons learned from the current Ebola outbreak and other significant outbreaks to develop a comprehensive framework to improve responses to future global public health threats. The program will include four work streams that will be coordinated and ultimately integrated through governance for global health, financing for global health preparedness and response.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

“NASSCORP Has US$81M in Assets, US$31M in Accounts”

first_img– Advertisement – Mr. von Ballmoos: “As you know when you run an institution, you have programs and policies that are in place that you want to continue…” The managing director-designate of the National Social Security and Welfare Corporation (NASSCORP) has said that the corporation’s investment portfolio is worth over US$80 million, while cash in banks with fluctuations is as high as US$30 million.Managing Director Dewitt von Ballmoos said most of NASSCORP’s investments are in real estate, with its largest investment being the building housing the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) at ELWA Junction; an office complex in Buchanan; a guest house in Kakata; a 16 bedroom facility in Voinjama, Lofa County; while the latest investment is a diagnostic medical center in Paynesville, outside Monrovia, behind the NASSCORP House, which he said will be online by September 2017. The corporation is also building its new headquarters on 24th Street in Sinkor.Von Ballmoos, who together with deputy managing director-designate Nya D. Twayen recently appeared before the Senate Committee on Social Security, Pension and Insurance, denied speculations and reports that NASSCORP has US$9 million in savings with First International Bank, by saying “the corporation’s Board has a policy that we do not have more than 30 percent of any money in any bank. We are saving with every bank in the country and nobody has more than 30 percent of our money.” Mr. von Ballmoos emphasized that the corporation has not encountered any losses with any of the banks they are dealing with, contrary to fears that such was the case.He told the committee chaired by River Cess County Senator Francis Saturday Paye that he has worked with NASSCORP for the past 11 years – six years as deputy and another six years as head of the corporation. “And as you know when you run an institution, you have programs and policies that are in place that you want to continue…besides my passion for what I do, it is also standard practice among all social security institutions over the world, that the heads are given tenures so as to complete their projections and progress they have envisioned for the corporation. So, after a reform of the old social security program that has been in place since 1988 without a reform, and after we have come to the place and changed it, it is in the wisdom of the Legislature to see it fit to go into best practice to suggest tenure for the head and the deputy of the corporation.”The new tenure for the new managing director will be five years, according to new Act.He said prior to the approval of the new NASSCORP Act in December 2016, there was no review of the program for five years, noting that “standard practice in social security programs is that one must do an actuarial review every five years of the program to see where you stand. For that, we unfortunately have not done any for a long period, but we were able to do one in 2008, and this is what has now remitted into reform.”Von Ballmoos said that the old Social security Act did not include members of the Legislature, but that they are entitled to a pension when they are 60 and no longer able to work and retired.He told the hearing that NASSCORP is supposed to run the pension and employment injury schemes, while noting that the welfare scheme has never been launched, “because there is no money for that, but the welfare portion would have to be fully funded by government as a welfare portion.”Meanwhile, Mr. von Ballmoos, in an answer to a question posed by journalists, denied that NASSCORP has not been audited for years, adding: “NASSCORP is audited yearly.”The Committee on Social Security is expected to be on today’s agenda with a report requesting plenary to endorse, adopt, and confirm the two nominees during executive session.In another development, the Senate takes a two-week Easter break starting today, Tuesday, April 4.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

How Chelsea will change under Frank Lampard

first_imgThe appointment of Frank Lampard as manager of Chelsea was warmly greeted by the fans as a sign that the club might be looking to change their approach to the way the club operates. Ever since the Roman Abramovich era began in 2003, there has been a firing culture at the club. Lampard marks the 16th manager of Chelsea under the Abramovich era, and there will be few fans complaining about the turnaround of managers. Since the Russian’s arrival at the club, they have become one of the most successful sides in England, and have won five Premier League titles, five FA Cups and the Champions League. However, the quick disposal of youth players in something that has begun to irk the Stamford Bridge faithful. Chelsea have let go of the likes of Mohammed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku without giving them a fair crack at excelling at the Bridge. However, the arrival of Lampard is likely to change that.Youth given a chanceLampard’s arrival combined with the transfer embargo hanging over the club meant that it was finally time for Chelsea to give the younger players a chance. The departure of Maurizio Sarri to Juventus following the Europa League success meant that the club needed to act quickly. Lampard was always the fans’ choice, and his reputation of working with younger players at Derby County would have been an overriding factor for his appointment.Mount impressed while on loan at DerbyIn his only professional season in management, he lowered the average age of the Derby squad from over 30 to 26 years old. This isn’t even mentioning the fact that he centred his team around the youngsters of Harry Wilson and Mason Mount, the latter of which was on a season-long loan from the Blues, and looks to be a central figure in Lampard’s fresh approach. The departure of Eden Hazard has also enabled Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi to become the first choice wingers. Lampard will also give Tammy Abraham a chance to establish himself. Change in tacticsThe 4-3-3 system has been commonly used throughout the years at Stamford Bridge by multiple managers, but Lampard has been keen to change that straightaway. The Blues achieved a period of success under Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 formation, but Lampard again has preferred to play with four at the back. But instead of a rotating three in midfield, he has opted for two holding midfielders before playing an attacking three behind a central striker. The 4-2-3-1 formation that he has opted for throughout pre-season was also his go-to tactic last season. According to Total Football Analysis, this formation could see the club finally get the best out of N’Golo Kante and Jorginho in the same team, while he could build on the relationship that has been shown behind Mount and Abraham for the England U21’s. The three behind Abraham will likely be Hudson-Odoi, Mount and Pulisic, and those four could present an awful lot of problems for opposing defences.Kante was used in an attacking role by SarriLampard still has a decision to make regarding his back four. Cesar Azpilicueta will likely remain the club captain and take up the right-back position, but the central options include David Luiz, Andreas Christensen, Kurt Zouma, Fikayo Tomori and Antonio Rudiger. Lampard has reiterated throughout the summer that he wants to keep Zouma, which would mean that he has first-team chances. But it will be interesting to see which is his preferred pairing. At left-back there could be an extended run in the team for Emerson; after all Lampard has preferred the Italian over Marcos Alonso throughout pre-season.Realistic targetIt looks unlikely that Chelsea will be able to mount a title challenge, as the club are currently valued at 28/1 to win the Premier League. A more realistic target for the club for their first season under Lampard would be a top-four finish. Compare Your Odds currently have Chelsea at 11/10 to achieve that in 2019-20. However, their start will be crucial to their ambitions. These are their opening five fixtures:• Manchester United (A)• Leicester City (H)• Norwich City (A)• Sheffield United (H)• Wolverhampton Wanderers (A)It isn’t the easiest of starts for the Blues, and fans will know more about how the team will line-up after their opening fixture at Old Trafford. Compare Your Odds put the best odds on Chelsea to beat Manchester United at 4/1. The tools are in place for Lampard to achieve, but it is undoubtedly a gamble considering how the younger players adjust to playing regular first-team football in the Premier League for a club that has higher standards than most.  Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebookby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksRecommended for youAspireAbove.comRemember Pauley Perrette?

Ferrer on Rice ejection: ‘I didn’t do anything’
