It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this!”Twelve hours later, he was still at it, denying any rifts about the issue with his influential chief of staff.ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson How to help the Taal evacuees MOST READ Meralco, Star seek Final 4 “General John Kelly totally agrees w/ my stance on NFL players and the fact that they should not be disrespecting our FLAG or GREAT COUNTRY!”Trump — who faces low poll numbers and is struggling to enact his agenda — earlier tried to single out the NFL players who protested.“Many people booed the players who kneeled yesterday (which was a small percentage of total). These are fans who demand respect for our Flag!” he tweeted.He also pointed to the Pittsburgh Penguins’ acceptance of a White House invitation and support from racecar fans.“So proud of NASCAR and its supporters and fans. They won’t put up with disrespecting our Country or our Flag – they said it loud and clear!” Trump tweeted.Only a handful of NASCAR drivers have been African American.But driver Dale Earnhardt also took to Twitter, implicitly rebuking Trump with a quote from former president John F Kennedy: “All Americans R granted rights 2 peaceful protests Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”Trump also drew a furious backlash from NBA basketball stars, including superstar LeBron James, who described the president as a “bum.”“He doesn’t understand how many kids, no matter the race, look up to the president of the United States for guidance, for leadership, for words of encouragement,” said James.“The people run this country.

AFPWASHINGTON—US President Donald Trump denied inflaming racial tensions Monday, insisting his charged comments that prompted a wave of symbolic protests by NFL players were about patriotism not color.After his volley of verbal attacks on black athletes led players across the country to kneel during the US national anthem over the weekend, the besieged president played defense on Twitter.ADVERTISEMENT In ‘Jojo Rabbit,’ Comedy and Drama Collide Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours The White House denied that Trump’s “son of a bitch” remarks were unbecoming of his office.“I think that it’s always appropriate for the president of the United States to defend our flag, to defend the national anthem, and to defend the men and women who fought and died to defend it,” said spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.“The president is not talking about race,” she claimed.Courting controversy Trump has wholeheartedly embraced the controversy, with his advisors suggesting it plays well with his largely white base.Trump also changed his Twitter background photo to an American flag and stated that the “White House never looked more beautiful than it did returning last night.”That has led critics to accuse Trump of creating a diversion.His efforts to repeal Barack Obama’s health care reforms have run aground and would-be signature tax reforms are giving way to much less ambitious tax cuts.At the same time, Trump faces a number of challenges from overseas, not least a war of words with North Korea that threatens to become a shooting war.Trump has also faced criticism for his low-profile White House response to Hurricane Maria, which has left much of the US island territory of Puerto Rico.

Local advocacy group wants more care for seniors

No Comments

first_imgShe adds the request has already been taken to both Northern Health and the city.The health authority now has the third house – with an estimated price tag of over $20 million – on its provincial government capital project shopping list.Given the current need, and the fact it could take a couple of years to complete, SONS would like to see construction begin as soon as this summer.Along with the new hospital, Peace Villa opened with 124 beds in June of 2012. Together they were part of a $298 million project, which took three years to complete from the start of construction.Advertisement Save Our Northern Seniors is pushing for the additional building, but that’s not all.“We want a 60 unit for 60 residents with an activity room that will hold people,” says SONS President Jean Leahy. “Right now their activity room is Patch Java, which when they have a dance up there, you can hardly get around for wheelchairs and walkers.”Leahy says more people would attend events in the activity room if it wasn’t so crowded.- Advertisement -She says a daycare facility within the activity room is another required amenity.“That’s a daycare for the people that work at the care home,” Leahy goes on to say. “The idea with the daycare is for retention and recruitment.”“They need some incentive sometimes to stay here.”Advertisementlast_img read more

Ten-man Mathare blank Chemelil at Kasarani

first_imgPlaying at home, Mathare had a superb start to the match getting into the lead just four minutes in, Cliff Nyakeya opening his account for the new season with a second bite of the cherry.The speedy winger had won a penalty after being brought down by keeper Bernard Onunga. He stepped up to take the spot kick but it was saved. However, he was quickest to the rebound puncing and slotting home.In the seventh minute, Daniel Mwaura should have sent Mathare 2-0 up when a defensive error from the new look Chemelil side gifted him of the ball with only the keeper to beat but he somehow shot over the bar.Nonetheless, the Slum Boys were 2-0 up after 13 minutes when Clifford Alwanga thundered home a header from the back post after rising to meet Kevin Kimani’s corner from the right.The home side continued to dominate as Chemelil struggled to keep pace and in the 17th had another glorious chance when Nyakeya broke into the box to face the keeper one on one but somehow as well could not hit the ball on target as he sent it flying high.A minute on the turn, Chemelil had their first effort at goal when Philip Mwangale rifled in a volley from range, but it flew straight to Job Ochieng’s arms.The sugar millers began to build some confidence, spreading the ball across the width of goal but could not still manage to have a crack at goal.In the 23rd minute, they came inches close when George Mutimba was teed up at the edge of the box but his curling effort went inches over the bar.Mathare thought they had gone three up after 27 minutes when Johnstone Omurwa swept home from the edge of the six yard area after a routine training ground corner, but the first assistant’s flag was up for offside.Ten minutes later, Mwaura was presented with another glorious opportunity when Roy Okal’s well diced cross from the right found him rushing to the backpost, but his effort at a bouncing header was awkward, the ball rolling out.After the break, Mathare should have buried the game early with decent chances falling their way.Two minutes in, Mwaura delivered a decent low cross into the box from the right with Nyakeya arriving to flick it home but the keeper made a superb reflex save to turn the ball behind for a corner.From the set-piece, Mathare had another chance when a miscued kick off the ball from Alwanga found skipper Oduor at the backpost but his tap at goal came off the upright and the ball ricocheted off his feet for a goalkick.In the 49th minute, Alwanga was sent through on goal by Nyakeya, but his shot with only the keeper to beat went inches wide.Alwanga had another chance at goal in the 70th minute but his glancing header off a Kimani cross was saved by keeper Onunga for a corner.Mathare were reduced to 10 men 12 minutes to time when keeper Ochieng was shown a straight red card for a high boot tackle on Lucas Waitere outside the box.Mathare was forced to sacrifice striker Alwanga for second choice keeper David Okello and from the resultant setpiece by Chemelil, Vincent Mahiga curled the ball just over.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Mathare United striker Clifford Alwanga progresses through on goal during their Kenyan Premier League opening match of the 2018/2019 season against Chemelil Sugar at the Kasarani Stadium on December 8, 2018.

first_imgNurse Pauline Cafferkey whose family are from Co Donegal.A nurse with strong Donegal connections who was infected with Ebola in Sierra Leone has been hospitalised for the third time.Health worker Pauline Cafferkey — a cousin of football icon Packie Bonner — was rushed to hospital in Glasgow after showing signs the fatal virus had returned.A source confirmed the 39-year-old was undergoing treatment at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital but added medics hadn’t decided whether to send her back to the London facility where she was kept in isolation twice before.A source told the Irish Sun: “Pauline has been admitted to hospital again following routine tests. It’s unclear at the minute if she will have to attend the Royal Free Hospital but plans have been put in place if required. “She is unwell and showing signs the virus may have returned. Further tests have been carried out and Pauline is being treated as if she has Ebola again.”Pauline, of Cambuslang, near Glasgow, had initially recovered after contracting the virus while working with victims of the outbreak in Sierra Leone, West Africa, in late 2014.But in October last year she suffered a relapse when she contracted a strain of meningitis as a result of the virus. Weeks later docs again gave her a clean bill of health.FEARS THAT PACKIE BONNER’S NURSE COUSIN HAS EBOLA VIRUS AGAIN was last modified: February 24th, 2016 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:donegalebolaPackie BonnerPauline McCafferkeylast_img read more
