Chelsea offered between 30 and 35 million and Barça only 21. I told Jorge Mendes that for what Barcelona Pinto da Costa paid, he would not let me go. I spoke to the president and told him that I knew there was Barcelona’s offer and also what Chelsea was offering. “You are going where you want. I promised and I will keep it,” he told me. That story marked me a lot because it says a lot about the person, “explained the midfielder. Years later, Deco did end up at Chelsea although it was after triumphing in both Porto and Barcelona. In London he did not coincide with Jose Mourinho but continued to expand his record, in which he already had two European Cups (2004 and 2006). After Chelsea, he moved to Fluminense, where he hung up his boots in 2013. In July 2004, Barcelona signed Deco, one of the key players in the Blaugrana club’s successful journey in the first decade of the 2000s.

So, he would speak to the president and he would tell me I had to talk to Mourinho, who had told him that we were going to be European champions. I started laughing and told the president that winning UEFA was fine but that the Champions were not going to win it. Pinto da Costa assured me that Mourinho had told him that we had options to win and promised me that the following year I could go wherever I wanted.

Blake expects strong showing at World Relays

first_img NEXT GENERATION President of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association, Dr Warren Blake, is confident that Jamaica’s young athletes will do well at this year’s IAAF World Relays in The Bahamas. Blake told The Gleaner that despite the absence of the star sprinters Usain Bolt, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Veronica Campbell-Brown, he is very optimistic that the athletes will put on a good show in April 22-23 meet in the Bahamas. “We will continue to do well,” Blake predicted. “We have not sent the strongest team that we have because as you know, Bolt and some of the other top athletes won’t be there, but we have sent a fairly strong team.” In the previous two instalments of the IAAF World Relays in 2014 and 2015, which also took place in Nassau, Bahamas, Jamaica finished second behind the United States with 41 and 46 points respectively. Blake said youngsters in the team have a lot of quality. “These youngsters represent the next generation, and so it is time for them to get a real taste of international competition without Bolt because come July, Usain has signalled that he will no longer be competing at the international games,” said Blake. The Jamaicans took gold in the men’s 4x200m and women’s 4x100m in the 2015 event with the men’s 4x100m and women’s 4x200m and 4x400m teams winning silver medals. The veteran administrator noted that he expects the country to retain their sprint titles, but he stated that it is going to be very difficult to win the longer relays. “We have a very strong possibility in the 4x100m to beat the US because we have sent a very strong team, and so they should perform well,” Blake said. “But the 4x400m is going to be very difficult because the US has more depth than us, but I still expect us to do well,” he said. Jamaica’s 41-member team will be led by Olympic sprint champion star Elaine Thompson. The male contingent will be led by former 100m record holder Asafa Powell and 2011 World 100m champion Yohan Blake.last_img read more

Strengthening the Health System, Gov’t to Build Referral Hospital in Each County, Lawmaker Discloses

first_imgThe greatest lesson learnt from the devastating impacts of the Ebola crisis is the fragile state of the health sectors of the affected countries. In many communities in these countries, especially Liberia, health facilities and services are non-existent. If the Liberian government has been taught a good lesson by the EVD, it must now begin to take heed, which it seems it is beginning to do.In order not to experience the level of embarrassment faced during the outbreak, the Liberian government has begun to hold talks with international community and other partners to help to build the health sector and not to rebuild because none existed.In this regard, a high profile government official has disclosed that the government is embarking on plans to construct 15 referral hospitals across the country. Representative Saah Joseph, who is the Co-Chair on the House of Representatives’ Committee on Health, Gender and Children’s Affairs, said these hospitals will have to be on par with its regional neighbors in terms of infrastructure, equipment and human resources.The Lawmaker said the level of devastation that the EVD had on the country is a clear manifestation of the sufferings of a majority of the citizens as a result of lack of infrastructure development including health facilities, roads and energy that would cater to their basic needs.The national legislature needs to get more vigilant to ensure that the people’s needs are met. And one of the most convenient ways to begin this vigilance is by ensuring that modern referral hospitals are built in the 15 counties.The Lawmaker spoke recently in Monrovia when he served as one of three panelists at a national conference on Ebola. The panelists who included US Center for Disease Control Deputy Mission head to Liberia, Dr. Desmond Williams, a Women’s group leader from Grand Bassa County, had gone to share their experiences and contributions during the height of the crisis and how their help had led to the impending victory against the virus.He disclosed that the legislature, through his committee, working with the Executive, through the Ministry of Health (MOH) has been collaborating to make sure that this goal is achieve. “If any help is coming from the international community for Liberia’s recovery plans, it must be directed to projects like (referral hospitals in each county),” he said.“We must tell our partners what we want. We must tell them our priorities. We are the ones that know the issues affecting us, because if we do not, these people [the partners] will go and do their reports and say we gave Liberia such and such amount, but the impacts will not be seen. So this is the time for us to make tangible worthy investments. We need to love our country,” Rep Joseph admonished.Rep. Joseph, who claims he’s more a humanitarian than a politician, said it does not make sense for Liberians, especially the privileged ones to be trouping to neighboring countries (Ghana and Nigeria) to seek advanced medical treatment. “Why can’t we do it for ourselves here? What are those people doing that we cannot? It just takes patriotism and hard work. OK, the privileged ones are going abroad for treatment, but what about the majority of underprivileged, what becomes of them?” he asked.“The worst affected in this crisis were those from the rural communities in these counties who, at certain points, had to be transported to Monrovia ETUs withholding centers before receiving medical attention. This is one of the worst moments in the history of our country and we must learn from it to right the wrongs of the past. And one of the ways we can do this is to construct these referral hospitals for our people.”He also complained of the limited number of trained health workers in the country. Before building these hospitals, he said, government should be able to recruit locals from the various counties to send abroad for training.“The personnel that are to work in referral hospitals must be locally recruited and sent abroad for training.” He said this will help in empowering the locals. “We cannot afford to continue to take health workers from Monrovia and carry them to those places. Let the sons and daughters of the locals also be empowered because they own the facilities and will know how best to take care of them.”Rep. Joseph is the Founder and Administrator of First Responder, a local medical organization that was in the vanguard of the Ebola fight.After initial success in Liberia, Rep. Joseph led a team of First Responders volunteers along with three of his ambulances into Sierra Leone where the infection rate of the virus was high. He also had considerable success in that country.The Montserrado County lawmaker is now considered the newest prodigy on the block in the health sector as a result of the tremendous efforts he exerted in the fight against the Ebola Virus Disease. Many, both locally and internationally, have hailed him for his efforts in bringing relief to the Liberian people.“He is one of the major reasons why the evading killer (the EVD) has been contained,” a lady at the conference said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Sankoh expressed gratitude to Commissioner Wleh and the people New Georgia for the land.Speaking on behalf of his colleagues, Sankoh promised to use the land to construct a modern carwash, which is expected to be the first ever modern carwash in the country, for the benefit and employment of the youth in the community.The carwash would include a cafeteria, gift shop, a dressing room and toilet facility. Sankoh said that the project started September 1 this year and that residents are happy with the progress made so far.The land was donated by Commissioner Wleh after he learnt during an interactive forum that Humble Youth International Inc. was in need of land space to construct the carwash, which is meant to create jobs for youths in the community and beyond. Humble Youth International Inc. with support from the United Nations Peace-building Fund (PBF) concentrates its activities on peace-building, youth and women’s empowerment and rights advocacy. It is located on Peace Land Community, Jah Tondo Town, Brewerville City, outside Monrovia.The organization was established in 2008 to, among other things, spread the message of peace, unity and prayers, ensuring that the consciousness of peace and stability is attained; to protect female youth from genital mutilation and promote gender equality; to address all forms of armed conflicts, violence against women and girls in Liberia, Sierra Leone, La Cote d’Ivoire and Guinea in particular, and the world in general.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Patients allegedly infected while being treated at GPHC

first_imgTwo patients who were both discharged from the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) on Thursday are alleging that they were infected by doctors at the hospital, and have even accused the doctors of being ignorant.Businessman Jummal Pinder, a 22-year-old East Bank Demerara resident, told Guyana Times he had been involved in an accident on April 15 last, after a blow-out caused him to lose control of the car in which he was travelling; and it swerved off the road and eventually flipped, causing him to sustain a broken hip and leg, along with several bruises to his face and body.Pinder said he was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC), and was hospitalised for about three weeks. Doctors at the GPHC inserted steel in his leg inThe condition of Jummal Pinder before he was discharged from GPHCa surgery.According to him, the pin which kept the steel in place was inside of his foot for about three weeks, during which time he was under severe pain but thought it was normal. However, a few days after the pin was detached from his leg, the leg became swollen and started to ooze.Alerted by this, he revisited the GPHC about two weeks ago, and was told that his leg was infected.“When I came here, my foot was so bad that they had to hold it up. It was swollen, and one of them people end up dropping my foot, and the thing burst and started oozing a set of blood, and inflammation was just running out quick, quick, quick,” Pinder reklated.He said he was treated with antibiotics and sent away. He returned last Wednesday for a checkup, but was again sent away.Last Saturday, while experiencing excruciating pain, a high temperature and vomiting, he revisited the GPHC and was hospitalised.The young man said he was again forced to undergo yet another surgery to rectify the condition. He said his condition has since been improving and is currently healing, but he is upset at the way the doctors had handled his matter, since he believes he could have lost his leg because of their negligence.Another patient, who requested that his name not be published, told <> he had experienced the almost exact situation. This 34-year-old who hails from North Ruimveldt, Georgetown related that he had been involved in an accident on March 10 last, when he was struck off his motorcycle by a car that made a sudden turn.The father of one said he was taken to the hospital by the driver, and was treated and sent away. He explained, “They did an external fixation. They put in four screws (in my leg), and one of those four screws was sent in way over to the other side (of my foot). So while it was there, it was irritating my skin all de time and causing infection”.He said while he was at home his foot was developing an infection, which caused him to visit the GPHC on Monday. He claims that the nurses sent him away, telling him they had a lot of work to do, and his clinic day was on Wednesday.The man complained that his foot had already developed an abscess, which had burst on Tuesday and was bleeding. “The abscess burst at home, and it was bleeding (badly); but I couldn’t come (then), I had to come Wednesday. So when I came on Wednesday, they admit me to the hospital and they cut meh foot, remove the steel that was on the other side…”He said that before the doctors had inserted the screws into his foot, his bones were together in the X-ray test, but after they operated on it again, the bone separated. He said the doctors did the surgery, but his condition worsened.“Like they don’t know what they doing,” he cried.Efforts to get a comment from an official from the medical facility proved futile.last_img read more
