The management of the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) has assured the public that three rural water and sanitation projects being funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB) at a cost of US$40 million, are expected to be completed by May this year.The projects are in Kakata, Margibi County, Buchanan, Grand Bassa County and Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County.LWSC Managing Director, N. Humbo Tulay, last weekend led a team of engineers to assess progress on the projects. At the Kakata project site, Resident Engineer Samuel Yoyowah briefed Messrs. Tulay and Sandikie with technical details on the progress and challenges facing the project.Mr. Sandikie said the distribution of water in Margibi County has on the basis of institutional chambers been expanded to serve private, public and business establishments.He added that one new well has been drilled, two old ones rehabilitated and the main degraded water distribution tower upgraded to its prewar status in Kakata City. Mr. Sandikie further disclosed that when the Kakata City water project is completed, the distribution of pipe-borne water will cater to 3,000 customers and that customers’ chambers have been constructed. He also said that in Kakata City alone, 10 de-sludge latrines have been constructed under the same UWSSP project intended to provide the public with safe modern latrines as part of the sanitation component.For his part, the UWSSP Project Engineer Samuel Yoyowah said due to the expansion component of the project, new areas of Kakata City have been connected with pipe-borne water.Prior to the new water project, Mr. Yoyowah said a majority of the residents in Kakata got water from shallow wells.He said to date there are 30 institutional chamber connections in Buchanan City, Grand Bassa County.Previous land occupied by LWSC in Buchanan has been reacquired and construction work is ongoing.To deter residents from encroaching on the LWSC facilities, Mr. Sandikie recommended the fencing and full demarcation of all LWSC facilities.At the end of the tour, LWSC Managing Director Tulay assured residents that the project will be completed in the stipulated timeframe.Mr. Tulay added that when the water and sanitation projects are completed, 67 percent of the population will have access to pipe-borne water in Kakata, Zwedru and Buchanan cities respectively.He also explained that prior to the civil conflict Kakata, Zwedru and Buchanan had access to pipe-borne water.In 2008, Tulay said the LWSC management revamped its facilities in Kakata City to 50 percent capacity.For the Zwedru City water system, Mr. Tulay said the facilities were restored to 40 percent.The objective of the three city water projects is to restore 100 percent water supply and some expansion and distribution networks in the three cities.“What I have seen today of the projects impressed me so much that engineers of the UWSSP have supervised the works well and our hired consultant has performed to our expectations,” Director Tulay noted. Mr. Tulay added that from the documents received and the level of work done, 60 percent of the projects’ implementation plans have been completed.As for the sanitation in Kakata, 50 percent has been completed, while in Buchanan, 50 to 55 percent of sanitation has also been completed.Mr. Tulay said by July 2016, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and a team of government officials will commission the facilities at one of the water project sites.

In the circumstances, the last thing Wenger needed was to see his side held to a dour 0-0 draw by Sunderland on Saturday, especially as Giroud and Lukas Podolski — the two strikers signed to replace van Persie — gave underwhelming performances.French forward Giroud, who came on as a second half substitute, was especially culpable as he squandered a golden opportunity to score a late winner.Wenger acknowledged his side lacked a cutting edge in attack but Giroud scored 21 goals to help Montpellier win the Ligue 1 title last season and the 25-year-old is confident he can emulate that prolific form at Arsenal — providing he is allowed to adjust to his new surroundings.“This could have been the dream start but in Montpellier, I did not score for my first game, so I am not worried. Here, I will have plenty of chances and I will score,” Giroud said.“Last season was wonderful here for Robin but before that he took time to settle. I am just asking people to be a little patient with me.“I am not here to make people forget Robin because he has made beautiful things here but I just want to bring something new.“However, I am under no more pressure than that because if I think about that when I go onto the field, I will play with the handbrake on.“I know Arsenal is a great club and needs a striker ready and efficient quickly. I need games to get confidence and it is up to me to succeed.”Fellow new signing Cazorla has warned Wenger that the club must replace Robin van Persie and Alex Song quickly.Cazorla made an impressive debut against Sunderland following his close-season move from Malaga but the Spanish midfielder was unable to spark a morale-boosting victory as Arsenal laboured without van Persie and Song.With Podolski and Giroud showing signs of needing time to bed in, Cazorla believes Wenger needs to return to the transfer market to increase his options.“It’s clear van Persie is a great player and obviously we would all have preferred it if he had stayed. Song has gone as well and there are still 10 days left in the transfer market,” Cazorla said.“I don’t know if we will sign anyone but obviously it’s important to replace players like that because they were so important.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LONDON, England, August 20 – Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has pleaded for time to prove he is a worthy successor to Robin van Persie but fellow new boy Santi Cazorla has urged Arsene Wenger to splash the cash.Van Persie’s £24-million ($37.6-million 30.5-million-euro) move to Manchester United and the subsequent sale of Cameroon midfielder Alex Song to Barcelona have prompted another bout of soul searching at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal players and fans come to terms with their club’s dispiriting start to the season.
Matt Jarvis in action for West Ham West Ham midfielder Matt Jarvis is finally set to make his comeback from injury on Monday night when he plays for the Development Squad against Sunderland at Upton Park.Jarvis, 28, has been forced to miss the start of the campaign after he picked up a thigh injury during pre-season.But the former Wolves winger has now resumed full training and is keen to get some much needed match action under his belt.With Cheikhou Kouyate and Mark Noble being ruled out through injury, Jarvis could make a timely return to first-team action for the televised clash against QPR on Sunday.Club captain Kevin Nolan is also set to feature following his recent shoulder injury. 1
Hull City Steve Bruce bemoaned his side’s wasteful finishing as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat at home to fellow Premier League strugglers Leicester City.The Tigers had several opportunities to score throughout the match, with Jake Livermore striking the post and Curtis Davies’ effort scrambled clear off of the line.But Bruce admitted his team, who sit 17th in the table, must begin to take their chances.“We’ve had more chances in that game than we’ve probably had all season,” said Bruce. “It’s been chance after chance, it was relentless and it was just one of those awful afternoons where we haven’t done a lot wrong.“They’ve had one shot at goal and scored. We’ve been camped in their half, hit the post and had one cleared off the line.“But if you’re going to be really critical then at this level you’ve got to take one of those chances.“At this level you don’t have five or six or seven like we’ve had today and unfortunately we’ve missed them and that’s been a problem, especially at home.”
10 10 IN: Graziano Pelle (Southampton) £8m – The Italian striker appears to have put last seasons barren run well and truly behind him and some decent fixtures are coming up for the Saints. After facing Everton theyll play promoted sides Norwich and Watford and he could well knock a few more goals home. 10 IN: Matteo Darmian (Manchester United) £5.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – The Italian was one of the most impressive debutants of the opening weekend and is likely to keep hold of his starting spot with the Red Devils. Their next three fixtures are Aston Villa, Newcastle and Swansea so he should get a few more points from these clashes. 10 OUT: Romelu Lukaku (Everton) £8m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – The Toffees didnt exactly put in a confident display against Watford as they drew 2-2 and although the Belgian got an assist after laying on Arouna Kones goal, hell be facing Southampton, Manchester City and Tottenham over the next three games. Wait until he gets an easier run of fixtures to bring him in. OUT: Hector Bellerin (Arsenal) £5.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – Arsene Wenger has revealed the right-back missed their defeat to West Ham with a slight muscular injury. He also said it would only be a question of days before his return but we reckon hell stick with Mathieu Debuchy for their away clash with Crystal Palace. IN: Jefferson Montero (Swansea City) £6m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – The usually unflappable Branislav Ivanovic really struggled up against the outrageously fast winger last weekend, so he could really punish an attacking full-back like Newcastles Daryl Janmaat this time out. Barely one per cent of players have the Ecuadorian so youll be a step ahead of your mates and hell then face the leaky looking Sunderland after battling the Magpies. OUT: Yannick Bolasie (Crystal Palace) £6m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – He only came off the bench as the Eagles beat the Canaries 3-1 on the opening weekend as he regains fitness. They play Arsenal in gameweek 2 so perhaps its best to let him regain form before picking him for your side. IN: Adrian (West Ham) £5m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – The Spaniard was in sensational form as he helped the Hammers dent Arsenals Premier League title bid on the opening weekend. He was a colossus between the sticks and made six saves earning himself two extra points to boost what was already a huge score thanks to a clean sheet and three bonus points. The Irons take on Leicester City this weekend and could well keep another clean sheet, despite the Foxes rampant display against Sunderland. 10 The Fantasy Premier League is underway but the opening gameweek wasn’t a classic with low scores across the board.The average manager landed 34 points while one lucky punter managed to rack up a sensational 109, although they did use their triple captain chip on Yaya Toure.Now though comes the time for a tinker. Did you pick a dud who didn’t start or did your goalkeeper (we’re looking at you, Thibaut Courtois) land you in trouble?If so, it’s probably wise to use your first free transfer to right the wrongs of the opening weekend and here at talkSPORT we’re going to try our best to advise you.Check out the Fantasy Premier League transfers you might want to think about above by clicking the right arrow… 10 10 10 10 OUT: Daley Blind (Manchester United) £5.5m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – Having a player the Fantasy Premier League consider a midfielder playing as a defender for his club is a bad sign. Blind got just three points last weekend despite getting a clean sheet at centre-back against Spurs. Turf him out. Fantasy Premier League transfer tips – OUT: Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea) £5.5m – To find out who you should bring in, click the arrow above – A huge number of players opted to start with the Belgian but hell now be suspended for the Blues match with Manchester City. If you havent got a decent back up it might be wise to swap him out for one week so you can keep the points ticking over. 10 IN: Ashley Young (Manchester United) £6m – Click the right arrow for more advice… – It took an impressive Kyle Walker display, own goal aside, to keep Young quiet as the Red Devils beat Tottenham. Its unlikely the confident English winger will be kept under wraps so well in the coming weeks. Aston Villa, Newcastle and Swansea will do well to limit him over the coming games.

VALENCIA – Stephan Koplowitz has been appointed the new dean of the CalArts’ Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance, taking over a program boosted by a new endowment, professional space at the Los Angeles Music Center and a new partnership with the theater school. Koplowitz, a choreographer and educator based in New York City for the past 23 years, will come to the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia on Aug. 1, CalArts President Steven D. Lavine said Monday. Koplowitz is well-known in the contemporary dance world for concert performances, theater and public-site work as well as education, community arts and multimedia production. His appointment comes as CalArts celebrates a new endowment for its dance school and the emergence of its downtown Los Angeles professional space – the Roy and Edna Disney CalArts Theater at the Music Center. It also coincides with the reconfiguration of the CalArts Theater School’s professional production arm as the Center for New Performance, which will now also collaborate with the schools of music and dance. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card “The tools are in place. We only await Stephan’s leadership,” Lavine said. “As a choreographer, he is hitting the sweet spot of a wonderful career and he is a born teacher/educator.” Lavine said Koplowitz had taken up a one-week residence at CalArts in 2004 as part of his Alpert Award for the Arts fellowship. During that time he created a piece that involved every dance student – undergraduate and graduate – at CalArts. “We are all ready to work with Stephan to develop a program responsive to the conditions of dance today,” Lavine said. “This will be a turning point, mostly for CalArts, but for dance in Southern California generally.” Koplowitz is best known for creating large-scale performances for architecturally compelling and challenging spaces. Sites for his work have included London’s British Library and Natural History Museum, the windows of New York’s Grand Central Terminal, Union Station in Los Angeles and a coal processing plant in Essen, Germany. “Whether I am choreographing for a site or the stage, I am influenced by my environment and my community,” Koplowitz said. “The fact that Los Angeles faces Asia and borders on Mexico offers a new perspective on my world. “This, in combination with the richness and intensity of the artistic community at CalArts, provides exciting possibilities for developing work and collaborations. Although I am moving to the Los Angeles area, I feel that CalArts is its own city within a city – with its own culture, resources and links to other cultures around the globe.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Newhall Land hosted a pair of events last week for a total of about 400 community members to see the design of Landmark Village, Lauffer said. Participants included potential homebuyers, equestrians eager to find out about horse trails in the project and others simply interested in the development. Now that the environmental report for the first phase has been released, the public will have 60 days to comment on the report. The project will have buffers between development and the Santa Clara River that will reach up to 700 feet in some locations, according to Newhall Land. Ron Bottorff, chairman of Friends of the Santa Clara River, would like to see at least a 500-foot buffer zone throughout. The Santa Clara River is home to a number of species that need to be protected, he said. “You have to allow an adequate buffer zone between the riparian zone and the development, and we’re taking a look at that now,” he said. “We doubt very much if an adequate zone has been allowed.” email@example.com (661) 257-5253 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SANTA CLARITA – The developer on Monday began circulating environmental documents for the first phase of the 21,000-home Newhall Ranch project that has faced criticism since initially proposed more than a dozen years ago. This initial phase will have 1,444 homes, commercial and office space, an elementary school, a fire station, a community park and an extension of the Santa Clara River Trail. The Newhall Land and Farming Company calls each phase a village, and the first phase is named Landmark Village. “For many of us that have worked on it for a number of years, it’s quite exciting to now be on the actual implementation of one of our villages,” said Marlee Lauffer, a spokeswoman for Newhall Land.

The entire Newhall Ranch runs from behind Six Flags California’s Magic Mountain west to the Ventura County line. The Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission is scheduled to consider the first phase in January. Construction could begin next year and homes could be available for sale in 2009. The project has faced opposition for years.Some environmental groups still oppose adding new homes to an area inhabited by many animal and plant species. “We’re in a hole on traffic and one of the ways to get out of the hole is to stop digging it. And Newhall Ranch is just going to continue the major traffic problems that we have,” said Lynne Plambeck, president of the Santa Clarita Organization for Planning the Environment. Newhall Land plans to deal with additional traffic by widening Highway 126 from four to six lanes by the time the entire Newhall Ranch project is finished in about 25 years.
Elsewhere, Tottenham continued their 100% start under Jose Mourinho, but they suffered a late scare in their 3-2 victory over Bournemouth.Dele Alli struck twice and Moussa Sissoko made it three before Harry Wilson pulled two back for the visitors, including a fine free-kick.And Crystal Palace ended their five-match winless streak with a 2-0 victory at Burnley, with Wilfried Zaha and Jeffrey Schlupp on target for the Eagles.Meanwhile, in the late kick-off Watford squandered a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 at Southampton, with James Ward-Prowse’s glorious free-kick – which sealed all three points – reminiscent of something a certain David Beckham would have produced back in the day.SundayPierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice as Freddie Ljungberg’s first game in interim charge of Arsenal end in a 2-2 draw at Norwich, while Wolves and Sheffield United played out a 1-1 draw at Molineux.Leicester extended their Premier League winning run to six games with a 2-1 victory over Everton thanks to Kelechi Iheanacho’s 94th minute strike, which was initially ruled out for offside before VAR overturned it.Manchester United were held at home by Aston Villa in a 2-2 draw. Jack Grealish scored a stunning early goal to break the deadlock. United levelled just before half-time when Marcus Rashford’s header hit the post and went in off goalkeeper Tom Heaton for an own goal and then after the break Victor Lindelof headed the hosts in front.

Bless you. It may have been all fun and games at full time but a Scotland fan got a nasty surprise before kick off when his friends swapped his bottle of beer for a bottle of vinegar. And Raheem Sterling got a nasty surprise when his England team mate, ehh, sneezed…The cruel trick of a green bottle…It’s not quite as far as Russia but it’s get to Kaliningrad, one of the 2018 host venues. There’s nothing quite like waking up on a Monday morning and remembering you just watched Scotland win 5-1 in a World Cup qualifying game. One game down, nine to go and there we are sitting pretty at the top of the group. Leading the pack.Automatic qualification is in our hands. It’s ours to throw away now.

He said: “Dolly has been in the pipeline for a week or so and was in training with the club last week. He really impressed and we were keen to get him on a contract.“He can play on either wing. but predominantly the right; and can play up top as a 9 or second striker. He is a strong, powerful player with a great turn of pace.”New Lions boss Gary Holt said the move had already been pushed through before his arrival.He added: “As Davie has said, Dolly was tied up before I got the job and I’m more than happy with what I have seen from footage, and what I have been told from the coaching staff. We have an extremely competitive squad now and I’m excited to start working with them.” Livingston have signed Angolan forward Dolly Menga on a two-year deal.The former Blackpool attacker impressed on a training stint with the Lions last week and has now been handed a contract by the newly-promoted Premiership outfit.Menga, 25, follows midfielder Steve Lawson through the entrance at the Tony Macaroni Arena after the Togo international also penned a deal following a successful trial period.Assistant manager David Martindale said the move came about as a result of Livi extending their scouting networks over the summer.

Journalists will be able to produceprogrammes about the 2010 FifaWorld Cup from the IBC.(Image: Bongani Nkosi) The International Broadcast Centre (IBC) in Johannesburg, equipped with top-of-the-range technology, is fully prepared for the thousands of reporters who will converge there to cover the 2010 Fifa World Cup.Journalists were introduced to the facility on 21 May, ahead of its official opening on 2 June by Fifa president Sepp Blatter.The impressive IBC is based at Soccer City, where the opening and closing World Cup matches will be played. It will be the nerve centre of live broadcasts from there and the other nine host stadiums around the country.Some 1 900km of cabling has already been laid to connect the 10 facilities and enable all 64 matches to be broadcast live, in high definition, to 204 countries. It’s estimated that this coverage will reach billions of people around the globe.“It’s very clear that it’s from here [the IBC] that the world will be able to watch the World Cup from South Africa,” said Fifa general secretary Jérôme Valcke.About 13 000 international journalists and other media personnel have been accredited to use the IBC and some organisations have already set up their studios. A total of 189 media groups have confirmed that they will broadcast from the 30 000m2 centre.The top-rated Host Broadcast Services (HBS) will facilitate live feeds of every match to the licensed television and radio stations. It will use about 32 cameras per match for the live transmissions, an improvement from the 26 cameras used per match during the 2006 Fifa World Cup.“[The World Cup] will be broadcast in more homes than ever before. There will be a lot of television companies in South Africa,” said Fifa TV’s Niclas Ericsson.For the first time in the history of broadcasting the tournament, HBS will use 3D cameras to shoot some of the matches. Fifa said 25 of the 64 matches will produced in 3D.The IBC also boasts 80 interview and presentation studios, and facilities for mobile network operators to produce live broadcasts for mobile phones. South Africa’s MTN announced in 2009 that it will use this service.“We trust that we’ll make broadcast history with Fifa in this World Cup,” said HBS CEO Francis Tellier. “It [mobile phone broadcasts] is one of the innovations that we’ve brought to this World Cup.”Powering the IBCReporters and fans need not be worried about blackouts at the IBC, as organisers have enlisted the services of Aggreko, a reputable international electricity company, to ensure power supply at all times.About 16 diesel-powered generators, each with a capacity of 1MW, will be used to back up Eskom’s national electricity grid.“In every major sporting event there’s a risk for power failure … We’re here to stop that from happening,” said Aggreko’s CEO Rupert Soames.Aggreko believes that their power plan is “as robust as we can technically make it”. The company, which has provided back-up power for major events such as the Olympics and Barack Obama’s US presidential inauguration, will set up 1.5MW-capacity generators at each stadium for broadcasting operations.Aggreko has partnered with Shanduka Group, a leading South African investment company, for the World Cup project. “We’re sure that everything will work smoothly,” said Shanduka’s chairperson Cyril Ramaphosa.Centres for print journalistsPrint media journalists will be catered for in centres called “Media Tribunes” at each host stadium. Telkom has equipped the centres with telephones, fax machines, printers and data ports to make the reporting process as convenient and efficient as possible.Photojournalists will be able to download and send off their images at any time, thanks to Telkom’s advanced equipment.
