O’Dayne Richards maintains he will be working hard to medal at the IAAF World Championships in London next year.The 27-year-old Richards has a bronze medal under his belt from last year’s Beijing World Championships.”I am always looking to not just maintain, but increase. If you are not number one, you still might have work to do to maintain it,” said Richards, who is all about medal contention in London.”Definitely, that is the way I have to think as a professional athlete. I always have to think I am able to win a global title, break records – and world records,” he continued.OPTIMISTICHe said he is optimistic about next year, due to his ability to “fight through injuries, surgery and still make it to the Olympic final” in Rio.”It kinda gives me hope that I will still manage to get into the top 10 or even top three in the world next year in London, so I am really looking forward to that,” he told The Gleaner, adding that he took lessons away from Rio ahead of the new season.”Patience is one of the things I took forward from 2016, to be mindful of the fact that anything can happen and not to pressure myself too much.”I look forward to the possibilities that are ready and waiting for me in 2017, if the Lord wills,” he added.Richards is also a 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medallist and Pan Am Games gold medal winner last year. He explained that despite not medalling in Rio, he will grow from the experience.”I am grateful for what happened this year. I had a few injuries and because of that I wasn’t able to perform as well as I would like, but I still managed to make it to the Olympic final and I am grateful,” he reiterated.
Participants in the walkathon pose for a photo with Minister within the Public Health Ministry, Dr Karen CummingsWomen have been urged to endorse exclusive breastfeeding, which is the best option for the majority of infants, as Guyana begins its observance of National Breastfeeding Week 2016.“Today, I urge you all to continue to promote exclusive breastfeeding in whatever way you can, so that our babies can enjoy healthy lives from birth and that you use all available channels to spread the virtues of exclusive breastfeeding,” Minister within the Public Health Ministry, Dr Karen Cummings told a walkathon on Sunday morning which kicked off the week of activities.According to the Government Information Agency (GINA), the walkathon saw the participation of Minister Cummings, patient care assistants and midwives and doctors of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).Launched under the theme, “Breastfeeding: a key to sustainable development”, the week of activities seeks to further equip maternal healthcare workers, mothers and even fathers with the requisite knowledge and information to achieve 100 per cent exclusive breastfeeding across Guyana.Exclusive breastfeeding is a distinctive process that provides perfect nutrition for infants, and contributes to their growth and development.The Public Health Ministry will be heightening promotion and awareness of the need for mothers to practice exclusive breastfeeding.Nurses and other maternal healthcare personnel also advocated for the implementation of the six-month exclusive breastfeeding policy in Guyana, since the current rate stands at only 23 per cent, according to a United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) report.The World Health Organisation (WHO) states that women should breastfeed their babies for six months, since it reduces the risk of babies becoming infected, creates bonding between mother and child, and prevents ovarian cancer.Minister Cummings said, “Registered dieticians, nutritionists and dietetic technicians should continue efforts to shift the norm of infant feeding away from the use of human milk substitute towards human milk feeds.”Assistant Director of Nursing Services Keith Alonzo highlighted that the theme for this year’s observance of National Breastfeeding Week lent it to creating awareness of the links between breastfeeding and sustainable development.Alonzo said there were five main areas related to breastfeeding and the Sustainable Development Goals. These are nutrition and food security, health and well-being and survival for human beings, environment and climate change, work productivity empowerment, social protection and sustainable partnership, and the rule of law.National Breastfeeding Week will continue with a number of countrywide symposiums and workshops that will further educate mothers and promote exclusive breastfeeding.
A 15-year deal on the ratification of the extended and restated Agency Agreement between the Liberian government and the Liberia International Ship and Corporate Registry (LISCR, LLC) has been approved by the House of Representatives and sent to the Liberian Senate for concurrence.The lawmakers overwhelmingly passed the bill yesterday.The ratification and extension was amended owing to a communication from House Chairman on the Maritime Committee, Rep. Thomas Fallah, who is also the Chairman of the House Joint Committee on Maritime, Ways, Means and Finance and Judiciary, arguing that the agreement offers future improvement of services for the purpose of enhancing the viability and profits of the Liberian Maritime industry.In his communication to Speaker Tyler and his colleagues in defense of the passage of the bill, Rep. Fallah gave five prime benefits of the Agreement, including the provision of an enabling business environment for Liberia Maritime Sector and the relief of government’s revenue spending on rental for far more productive development programs in other areas of the postwar reconstruction process.Another benefit of the agreement is the creation of considerable stimuli for Liberia’s overall socio-economic development, considering the current status and the multiple effects of Maritime activities within a short period of time.“The Extended and Restated Agency agreement will also seek to produce a pool of qualified manpower through the regular training program of the Academy (LIMTI) with a vested interest in preserving the efficiency and proficiency of government as masters and agents of their own maritime industry,” Rep. Fallah advocated.He added: “the agreement when implemented would seek to strengthen partnerships with some of the world renowned shipping registries if Liberia’s maritime industry is capable of sustaining itself and expanding in some activities of our maritime industry.”The House approved the LISCR deal from 2014 – 2029, with the country gaining 67% of the net program revenues, while LISCR gets 33%.It may be recalled that last Friday during the LISCR-Liberia Public Hearing on the extended and restated Agency Agreement, Cllr. David Jallah, the General Counsel and Vice President of the University of Liberia, said the proposed 33 per cent of the net program revenues for LISCR should be reduced considering the fact that the Agent (LISCR) almost exclusively manages the affairs of the program.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
