However, the decision almost backfired when India were down to 17 for 2 in no time after Shafali Verma (9) and captain Smriti Mandhana (7) were dismissed cheaply.But the duo of Rodrigues-Krishnamurthy repaired the damage and took them to a decent total.In her 50 from 56 deliveries, Rodrigues could only hit three boundaries, while her partner Krishnamurthy made an unbeaten 57 off 48 with four of them.Advertisement The girls were disciplined while bowling and restricted West Indies to 73 for 7 in 20 overs. The hosts were struggling at 13 for 2 in the fourth over and couldn’t ever recover from that situation. Half of their side were back to the pavilion for just 53 runs in 14 overs with off-spinner Anuja Patil picking up two wickets for only three runs while Radha Yadav, Poonam Yadav, Pooja Vastrakar and Harleen Deol claimed a wicket each at the Providence Stadium.

It’s the day when we commemorate the difficulties faced in our own beginnings of nationhood.Let me join in welcoming, all of you, our ECOWAS brothers and sisters to Liberia, and wish you a successful session as you deliberate on “Universal Health Coverage: Issues, Challenges and Opportunities,” the goal to which all our nations strive to ensure that all of our people obtain quality and affordable health services.While the Ebola outbreak is probably uppermost in everyone’s minds throughout our nation and our sub-region, we remain convinced that our relentless effort that are now underway, our continuation in our aggressive program of containment will enable us to address this problem.I want to particularly thank many of you – the World Health Organization, West African Health Organization, all of our partners many of you in this room – for all the support and assistance that you have given to our team headed by Dr. [Walter] Gwenigale, all of whom have worked so assiduously in keeping our public informed on measures to take and in addressing in those cases where he have had unfortunate victims of the disease. We all strive to continue to do so.At the same time, we also continue to lay emphasis on achieving our goals and objectives for Universal Health Coverage, as carried in our current Ten-Year Health & Social Welfare Policy and Plan. This is why I applaud all of you for having taken the decision to come to this meeting here in Liberia to give us all the encouragement as we all work together to enhance quality delivery health care to our people.In our country, we are working to improve the health and social welfare status of our population on an equitable basis in the face of major challenges many of which have been outlined in some notes that Dr. Gwenigale gave me. I will not go through that because, like someone said he speaks frankly, sometimes too frankly, in a way he would be challenging and chastising me on all these inadequacies that exist to enable him carry out his goal.He has pointed out and we accept inadequate financing for drugs, facility construction, health workers incentives; poor-quality service delivery; financial constraints of the population themselves, especially the poor; unbalanced service provision across counties sometimes in the light of transport difficulties; and unsustainable health financing sometimes as over-reliance on donor funding.The added challenge that we recognize today is declining contributions from international partners; this is a reality and this is clear that if our country is to achieve Universal Health Coverage, we must go to work to build sustainable health financing system through domestic financing for our health sector.This will be a daunting task, no doubt, particularly in Liberia where there are multiple needs of a reconstructing country. However, we must get to the task.Achieving Universal Health Coverage takes time and perseverance for it involves accessibility, affordability and quality of service. Our government is endeavoring to realize this through a strong political commitment at all levels, the highest level in our society. At the 63rd World Health Assembly, in Geneva, I stated that people should not have to die simply because they are poor, and we pledged to find mechanisms to continue to allow Liberians to access the health care they need without having to pay up-front fees. This is why, today we want to commend our health team for the health services that are rendered free in all of our rural areas, sometimes not at the quality we want, but certainly expanding in such a way that they know that if they do have some urgent health problem they can go to a health service center and get immediate and urgent care until they can be transferred to facilities that require much more attention.We realize that free health care is not free; someone has to pay for it. It has to be paid through other forms of taxes; it has to be paid through the mobilization of resources. Therefore, we continue to applaud and to look for the support that we receive from our partners who have bought in to the programs that we have collectively designed to enable us to move forward.Consideration is now being given in our country for the establishment of a Liberia Health Equity Fund – a new funding mechanism that we hope will help to pay for health care for all Liberians on an equitable basis, with everyone having access to the same services regardless of where you are, who you are or your financial standing.We have a current Health Minister working with the former Health Minister, now a Senator, who we also look to do his part in the Legislature as the budget period comes near. We know that we can all count on them.Once again, I want to say a big thank you to all of you from WAHO, ECOWAS, African Union – all of our regional institutional partners – that have been of so much help to us as we try to respond to the health needs of our population.To all of you who are participating in this event, let me express on behalf of the Government and people of Liberia our appreciation for your presence, for your participation, for your partnership, and for your continued support.With this, I now declare the 15th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Health Ministers of ECOWAS officially opened.Thank you.
It is now confirmed that a Liberian was on Tuesday injured in the twin bombings at the Zaventem Airport and Maelbeek metro station in Brussels, Belgium.The victim is Mr. Sekon Watson, of Liberian origin and presently a US citizen, according to Dr. Isaac Nyenabo, Liberia’s Ambassador to Belgium.Providing an update yesterday on the barbaric attacks on Belgium, Ambassador Nyenabo stated, “Mr. Watson, who was injured at the Brussels International Airport is now being treated at the St. Luc Hospital near Brussels. I visited him a while ago and he is doing well, thanks to the Almighty God.” The Ambassador further said that Education Minister George Werner, who was also at the airport at the time the Islamist militants set off their explosives, is well and was able to leave Belgium yesterday morning to travel to France, where he and staff of the World Health Organization (WHO) Liberia office are scheduled to attend an international meeting in Lyon. Ambassador Nyenabo further stated, “Finally, I am informed by the Liberian Association leadership that a lady of Liberian descent, who is a Dutch citizen by the name Elita Weah, is still missing since the bombing incident.” “We are making all efforts to search for her. The Diplomatic Corps is informed through written communication from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Belgium that the threat level still remains at the highest level. I am closely working with all my Belgian counterparts in identifying and locating our people who were trapped in the attack,” Ambassador Nyenabo said on the Liberian Embassy’s Facebook wall.He also told Liberians living or stranded in Brussels, to be aware that the Belgian authorities have announced that the terror threat level remains at level 4, which is the highest and that they should remain careful and respectful of the regulations issued at this difficult time.Following the attacks, a staff of the Embassy in Brussels, Mr. Isaac C. Yeah, posted on Facebook: “So far Amb. Dr. Isaac W. Nyenabo and the staff of the Liberian Embassy near Brussels, Belgium are all fine and doing well in the wake of the incident at the airport.”According to Belgian authorities, the two men, who blew themselves up in the suicide bombings at both the airport and the Maelbeek metro station, were brothers – Khalid and Brahim el-Bakraoui, Belgian nationals.The Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization has claimed responsibility for the attacks which killed at least 14 persons at the airport and 20 at the metro station. Over 260 were injured in both attacks.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Photos NASCAR FONTANA – NASCAR Nextel Cup team members go up and down pit road during races, making deals with other teams. It’s a time-honored tradition in the sport. Help someone and in the future, they’ll help you. Especially among drivers on the same team. Last week’s Daytona 500 was a prime example. Kevin Harvick was sixth entering the final lap. He received a draft from Matt Kenseth, who is not Harvick’s teammate, to overtake Mark Martin and win the race. “Matt Kenseth helped Kevin Harvick because he thought he was going to get the best finish he could by doing that,” Burton said. “He didn’t think, ‘Oh, there is Kevin Harvick . I am going to help him win the Daytona 500.’ “ Cup race is cut-throat and those drivers who do not make immediate impressions usually find themselves out of a job very quickly. “We are selfish, self-centered, arrogant people who drive race cars,” Burton said. Stick to racingHopefully, Jimmie Johnson will do better on a snowboard than the Lakers’ Vladimir Radmanovic did during his break. And it’s all hogwash, said Cup veteran Jeff Burton, who will start today’s Auto Club 500 at California Speedway eighth. “The stories about teammates talking about helping each other are so exaggerated,” he said. The Cup Series has next week off before returning to Las Vegas in two weeks. Johnson, the 2006 series champion, said he is going snowboarding next week. Radmanovic separated a shoulder boarding during the NBA All-Star break. Johnson hasn’t done well with other sports lately. During the off-season, he fell out of a golf cart and broke his hand. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Although average farmland values have increased every year since 1993, recent increases are less pronounced than the 2011-2015 period that recorded significant average farmland value increases in many different regions.Gervais said fewer land transactions in 2018 is consistent with a tight supply of land available for sale and a softening in demand, which is a reflection of farm income levelling off, variable commodity prices and rising borrowing costs.Farm operators need to exercise caution, especially in regions where the growth rate of farmland values significantly exceeded that of farm income in recent years. At the same time, there is still a strong business case for buying more land, but not without carefully weighing the risks and rewards, he said.“There was a strong demand from producers for lower-valued land, which explains part of the average value increase recorded in some regions,” Gervais said. “It’s a strategic investment that can pay off if the operation is able to extract more from that land and improve its overall efficiency.”Advertisement FCC’s Farmland Values Report highlights average changes in farmland values – regionally, provincially and nationally. This year’s report describes changes from January 1 to December 31, 2018, and provides a value range in terms of price per acre. ABBOTSFORD, B.C. – In 2018 the average farmland value in Canada continued its steady climb, was published in a report by Farm Credit Canada, being driven by fewer, but more strategic investments by producers.“With the steady rise in farmland values, producers are making more strategic investments,” according to J.P. Gervais, Chief Agricultural Economist for Farm Credit Canada (FCC). “Whether it means paying a higher price for land that has potential to be more productive or buying in blocks to improve the efficiency of their operations, producers are sharpening their pencils with an eye on variable commodity prices.”The average value of Canadian farmland has increased by 6.6 percent in 2018, following gains of 8.4 percent in 2017 and 7.9 percent in 2016, according to the FCC’s 2018 Farmland Values Report.- Advertisement -In British Columbia, the average farmland value increased by 6.7 percent in 2018, following gains of 2.7 percent in 2017 and 8.2 percent in 2016.Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador were the only provinces that did not see an increase in farmland values. Quebec experienced the highest average increase at 8.3 percent, followed by Saskatchewan and Alberta, both at 7.4 percent, and British Columbia at 6.7 percent. The rest of the provinces were below the national average with Prince Edward Island’s average increase at 4.2 percent, Manitoba at 3.7 percent, Ontario at 3.6 percent and New Brunswick at 1.8 percent.Nova Scotia recorded a decrease of 4.9 percent in average farmland values, while Newfoundland and Labrador did not have enough publicly reported transactions to fully assess farmland values.Advertisement
