first_imgAs reports emerge about a decline in Ebola cases and international partners rush into affected countries with assistance, the European Union (EU) is calling for total concentration on all matters relating to health and not just the Ebola crisis.The Managing Director for Crisis Response and Operational Coordinator at the European External Action Service (EEAS), Agostino Miozzo, yesterday told a press briefing in Monrovia that other diseases including diarrhea, typhoid and malaria, are prevalent in the sub-region, and they can claim lives along side Ebola.Mr. Miozzo is the head of a high level EU delegation which is visiting the three Ebola- affected countries, Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.He told the press conference that if, in the international response, attention is paid only to Ebola, other emergencies will occur in a few months from now and people will continue to die from treatable diseases.“We need to keep our vigilance on the entire health situation in the three affected countries and not just Ebola,” he urged.Besides, Mr. Miozzo said food security and education are equally important in the crisis and they should be addressed simultaneously because they go side by side.He indicated that food security is important and if attention is not paid to it, another problem will occur while trying to address one at a time.He said schools are now closed in the midst of the Ebola crisis and students are sitting down, which, he lamented, is a bad sign for the young people who need to acquire education.Giving the background of his delegation’s visit, Mr. Miozzo said EU member countries are seeing the need for the Union to scale up the quality and quantity of EU’s intervention in the Ebola crisis.  The delegation was here also to assess the situations in the affected countries and to report back to Brussels.“We do not want to duplicate interventions.  The purpose of the visit is to assess the interventions by international partners including the United States, talk with them and know exactly what we at EU will be doing in the crisis.  This is a regional crisis and we must take a regional approach because we cannot free one country and leave out the others,” Mr. Miozzo said.He added that they cannot approach the situation as a single unit; it should be done comprehensively with other partners.He also reiterated EU’s opposition to isolation and said those countries affected cannot be isolated. The disease, he said, is a virus that cannot stop because of isolation.The Managing Director for Crisis Response and Operation did not comment on the current information about decline in Ebola cases.  He, however, commended Liberians and the international community for their roles in responding to the crisis.He said they see more improvements in the Liberian Ebola response, which he described as “fantastic.”He, however, warned that Ebola has not totally left and even if cases drop, people should always be careful because it can resurface at any time.The press conference was attended by EU Delegation head, Ambassador Antillio Pacifici and members of the visiting delegation.EU is one of Liberia’s partners that have significantly contributed to the Ebola crisis. Besides millions of Euros the Union is providing to support government’s budget and address medical issues, it has offered to transport some Ebola materials and assign health workers in the three affected countries.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img“I don’t want to be a distraction to my team and there’s things that they’re trying to do on the field to be ready for the coming season. I do want to tell you guys that at the appropriate time I will address the matter.” In less than two weeks of workouts with his new team after signing a five-year, $50 million contract this offseason, Matthews is getting attention for all the wrong reasons. On Tuesday, the Albany (N.Y.) Times Union connected Matthews, through unnamed sources, to an investigation and raid of at least two internet-based pharmacies that have been supplying, among other things, human growth hormone. At the start of Wednesday morning’s meeting, Matthews immediately apologized for being associated with a possible team distraction. Moreno seemed impressed with the gesture. “Gary immediately walked in and apologized for any distraction and said he would try to get it resolved as quickly as possible,” Moreno said. TEMPE, Ariz. – Gary Matthews Jr. had a busier morning that usual Wednesday, addressing a newspaper article that connected him with a performance-enhancing drug scandal and then meeting with the club’s top brass. After meeting with club officials Tuesday, Matthews had a discussion Wednesday morning with manager Mike Scioscia, general manager Bill Stoneman, owner Arte Moreno and vice president of communications Tim Mead. Moreno added that the meeting wasn’t to ask Matthews if he has used any type of performance-enhancing substance. “We had a meeting really just to basically tell him how we felt, that we’re not going to ask you any questions until you’re able to tell us, but we’d like you to be straight up with us,” Moreno said. “I felt it was important for him to know he has our support. “For me, I like to be proactive and make sure that we communicate well. I just stressed that the communication was the most important thing here.” Stoneman declined to say if Matthews had a clause in his contract that offered the team recourse in case he was found to have used performance-enhancing substances. Stoneman said the team considers the language in all contracts as private. Manager Mike Scioscia, who has maintained a strong stance against performance-enhancing drugs, admitted that the Matthews situation has the potential for distraction. “There are things you’re going to deal with during course of the season, whether it’s a guy upset over playing time or a guy not performing and it becomes an issue,” Scioscia said. “Things come into the clubhouse, and you have to keep moving forward, playing ball, and we’re going to do that.” Matthews played in an intrasquad game Tuesday less than an hour after finding out that he had been tied to the scandal and he is expected to start in center field and lead off in today’s Cactus League opener against the Kansas City Royals. To this point, Scioscia seems satisfied that Matthews is not burdened by the situation. “Anyone who signs a big contract, the one thing you want to put into a player’s mind is, you’re the same player you were before, you don’t have to go above and beyond, just bring your game and play it,” Scioscia said. “This is obviously taking some things a step further, and Gary will have to deal with it, and we will as an organization.” Asked how how his name might have been linked to the situation, Matthews did not have an answer. “That’s exactly what we’re working on right now, gathering information,” Matthews said. “I will address the matter again at the appropriate time and I just wanted to just express that I will come out and talk to you guys about it when the appropriate time comes. I want you guys to respect my position and I don’t want to become a distraction for my team and my teammates.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

I just can’t comment on it. I ask that you guys respect my position on it. last_img read more

first_img Tony Pulis 1 Tony Pulis expects a raft of changes to his squad before the transfer window he loathes finally closes.The West Brom boss used his post-match press conference after the 3-2 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday to rip into the system after he dropped Saido Berahino amid interest from Tottenham in his signature.But Pulis has admitted he will have to use the controversial period to make extensive alterations of his own and he asked the club’s fans to be patient with the transition.“We enter the last week of games before the first international week and by the time we run out at the Hawthorns again I am sure we will see quite a few changes,” he said.“Please be patient and get behind the lads again, it’s imperative that we are together as one group.”last_img read more

The Russian scored four goals at the tournament including spectacular strikes against Saudi Arabia and Croatia.Cheryshev was once on the books at Real Madrid so he clearly has something about him. Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade The signing of Digne from Barca is a potentially really good find from Everton. The left-back clearly has the talent but whether he will be able to shift Leighton Baines out of the team is another thing.Coleman made his long-awaited return to the fold in the second half of last season and should be back fully recovered by the start of the season.The centre-back pairing could be a cause for concern, however. Keane was below par last season and Jagielka is an ageing player but he makes the cut as Ashley Williams appears set for a move away from Goodison Park. targets gameday cracker Latest Everton News After signing for the Toffees in January, Walcott has performed well so far and the acquisition of Richarlison could complement Cenk Tosun’s classic centre forward style of play.If these three could find a way of working together it could be a promising season for Everton.

After a fairly solid first season on Merseyside, Pickford showed himself to be the real deal with his heroics for England at the World Cup.The only concern Everton will have is if a bigger club goes after their keeper. The likes of Chelsea have reportedly showed an interest in Pickford. However, it seems like he is being offered a new and improved contract with his current club.

It’s real clear that the public is engaged.” In neighboring Agoura Hills, incumbent Denis Weber and challengers Bill Koehler and Harry Schwarz captured three vacant seats on the City Council.

And in the Las Virgenes Unified School District, incumbents Cindy Iser and Gordon Whitehead, along with challenger David Moorman, won election, defeating Joann Melancon in her bid for a board seat. CALABASAS – Voters sent the message they want more open space, with the overwhelming approval Tuesday of Measure D, an ordinance that requires voter approval for the sale or development of vacant land. More than 83 percent of the voters approved the measure, which will take effect 10 days after the City Council certifies election results. `’We are thrilled with the outcome,” Calabasas Mayor Barry Groveman said Wednesday. “The council unanimously put this on the ballot and the outcome proved that open space is a fundamental community value. It reinforces that open space can’t be sold or developed without a two-thirds vote of the public.” Carol Rock, (661) 257-5252 carol.rock@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
