first_imgLiberia’s former football giant, LISCR FC, has hired two new technical staff – head and deputy coaches in preparation for the new season.LISCR FC has also signed up 10 players to complete the difficult puzzle of maintaining its morale in the top flight as well as building a winning team for the 2014/2015 LFA League.According to LSCR FC ‘s media officer, Numennie Williams, the team has hired former Monrovia Breweries manager, Francis Sarploh as head coach, replacing Gabriel Johns and its former administrative manager and interim head coach Zayzay Kollie as the Deputy Coach.“Getting Sarploh is a real takeover for LISCR,” said the team’s public relations officer. “Sarploh approaches coaching with an added passion and tenacity than what he did during his impressive career at the Breweries.”He added: “Deputy Coach Zayzay Kollie played in the top flight and ably served as interim head coach – he still has fantastic physique, fantastic technique, and a fantastic brain.”The Gardnersville based outfit has retained long serving physical trainer Prince Kolleh and one of their own, Cooper Fannah, as Administrative Manager.In an exclusive interview yesterday he said LISCR FC has signed up its former potent striker Dominic Jlateh from Red Lions including ex-Red Lion’s midfielder and defender Abraham Barshall and Grosso Sloboh.The Breweries’ gangling defender Blidi Jackson, midfielder Stephen Seamah of NPA Anchors and Mighty Blue Angels’ desperate striker Thomas Myers have also joined the Ship Boys.The remaining hired players include midfielder Allen Njie from 3rd division club Pepper FC as well as midfielders Terrance Jones (on loan from Gardnersville FC) including defenders Momo Kiadi and Lasannah Kanneh.The new signees are expected to blend with skipper Mohammed Varney, Carlos Sanney and others to unleash a successful spell.“Majority of the players we have signed are youthful and have a long way to go. We remain confident that they will give us what we need this season,” Numennie opined.Mr. Williams had divulged that Coach Sarploh would be officially revealed soon, including the 10 new signees.He disclosed that LISCR FC has dropped six players, with one been move down to Gardnersville FC.Players who contracts were expired and could not be extended include Farmolu Kamara, Savanus Morris, Titus Doemah, Momo Gorlafaley and Dominic Savage – while, Nicholus Zoe has been sent to its feeder team – Gardnersville FC.The Ship Boys, since 2011 has been faulty in the title race in any of the three LFA’s tournaments, — but still remain the 2nd most successful team in Liberia’s contemporary football with 8 trophies to show their efforts.Presently, FC BYC come sailing in as the most successful team two of the three competitions, winning the LFA League and the Super Cup thrice, but grasped the FA Cup (knockout) once. FC BYC’s feeder team – BYC II also won the FA Cup once.FC BYC followed by LISCR are the current football giants in the top flight not considering the likes of Barrolle, IE and the Liberia’s Black Star, which has been out of the title race 0 years old.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

GARDA TO STAND TRIAL FOR ALLEGEDLY HARASSING WOMEN

first_imgA garda is due to stand trial twice next year at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court on charges of harassing two women.Garda Donal Maguire (38) is charged with harassing one woman at a location in Dublin over a period in 2012. He is also charged with harassing a second woman at a location in Dublin on dates in 2014.The Irish Times reports that Mr Maguire is formerly of Kilbarrack, Dublin, but the District Court heard previously that he is living now in Co Donegal. Ronan Kennedy, defending, said both trials will take approximately three days.He asked for a longer adjournment for the second trial to allow for “a fade factor” between the two cases.Judge Mary Ellen Ring set trial dates for June 30th and October 12th, 2015, and remanded Gda Maguire in continuing custody until that date.She also made witness and exhibit orders for both trials and set two pre-trial dates for May 15th and July 10th, 2015.Judge Ring previously confirmed Gda Maguire has not yet entered a plea in the case and therefore is still presumed innocence.She advised that the media should be aware of this in any reports.GARDA TO STAND TRIAL FOR ALLEGEDLY HARASSING WOMEN was last modified: December 2nd, 2014 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:Donal Maguiredonegalharassmentlast_img read more

Take a buddy on your travels

first_img25 January 2005A community response to the problem of crime in South Africa has been mobilised to make tourists feel safer too. Travel Buddy is a network of volunteers who look out for travellers, welcoming and advising them and, most of all, making sure they are safe.Travel Buddy also enables tourists to tap into an electronic messaging system – eBlockwatch – that alerts its members to incidents of crime and danger zones.eBlockwatch links around 11 000 members around the country – including police, neighbourhood watches, industries and the general public – via SMS and e-mail.eBlockwatch was started in 2001 by Johannesburg businessman Andre Snyman, owner of a truck company, who uses SMS to manage his trucks – and realised that the system could be harnessed to mobilise communities in the fight against crime.SMSs and e-mail messageseBlockwatch members receive regular SMSs on their cell phones and e-mails of criminal incidents or warnings of potential crime in areas where they are registered.Travel Buddy was formed in 2003 to give the thousands of tourists pouring into the country the same peace of mind. Through the scheme, tourists are also experiencing the warmth of South African hospitality, with many Travel Buddy members taking extra steps to make them feel welcome.This is how it works: before leaving their home country, tourists register for free on the Travel Buddy website, providing their itinerary details. When they arrive in South Africa, they buy a local SIM card for their cell phone (or a hired phone), contact Travel Buddy and get a phone number to use in emergencies.Throughout a visitor’s stay, someone will call or send a text message asking how things are going.The tourists are given an international tourist call centre number, and receive regular SMSs. Travel Buddy monitors tourists’ movements throughout their trip, provides them with details of local tourist information centres, and advises them on where to “stop, shop, rock and drop”.“If at any time you are in need of assistance, you call the emergency number and we will alert those members of eBlockwatch and request that they come to your assistance”, says the Travel Buddy website. “You will also be given local police details.“Depending on the severity of the emergency, SA Travel Buddy will inform all relevant government, South African Police, and South African Tourist Association members who are responsible for the safety of international visitors.“Although no reaction is guaranteed, this project will provide a useful link to a spirited community who would like to contribute to an enjoyable stay in South Africa.Real SA hospitality“We here in South Africa want you to realise that every international visitor is of great importance to our country. We want you to experience real South African hospitality.”The Automobile Association is encouraging hotels and B&Bs in its travel guide to sign up with the system, and Travel Buddy now has members spread across the country.Many members have gone out of their way to make tourists feel safe and welcome, and several visitors have reported positive experiences with Travel Buddy. According to an article in the Sunday Times, the Lockyear family was nervous about travelling to SA after a tourist was shot dead in Mpumalanga in October 2002.“Throughout their Christmas holiday, during which they travelled from Joburg to Mozambique and around the coast to Cape Town, they received regular calls from concerned South Africans who had their itinerary and gave them advice ranging from which roads to use to where to eat.”A group of Canadian volunteer teachers who came to teach in Alexandra township in Johannesburg in 2003 had a safe and much enriched experience thanks to their Travel Buddy, Bulldog Rathokolo, who organised 10 of his neighbourhood watch members to keep an eye out for them.According to the Sunday Times: “Not only were they safe, but other members of Travel Buddy even offered Schmidt’s staff free horse riding trips on their days off.“And during their stay in the township, Rathokolo and his men organised street parties for the students and a farewell bash at an Alexandra home where they slaughtered a sheep for the visitors.”SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

German group invests in SA agriculture

first_img18 April 2012One of Europe’s largest development finance institutions, the German Investment Corporation (DEG), has acquired a 10% shareholding in South African agriculture supply chain company Farmsecure Holdings.Farmsecure, which operates in livestock, field and horticultural crops, is a key player in South Africa’s supply chain industry.A subsidiary of the German development finance bank KfW, DEG first became involved with Farmsecure through its “AgroAfrica” programme, which pledged €100-million to the development of agriculture in developing countries on its establishment in May 2009.Through “AgroAfrica”, DEG provided working capital for Farmsecure’s primary agricultural activities.“Farmsecure has always valued DEG as an international financing partner and has developed a strong and stable relationship with DEG,” the company said in a statement this week. “During the past 18 months, the relationship has led to DEG now also becoming a shareholder in the Farmsecure Group.”Farmsecure CEO Jerome Yazbek said Farmsecure had experienced exceptional growth, both organically and by acquisition, and therefore thought it prudent to further strengthen its balance sheet through this equity injection.“However, we were not only looking for any investor, but for one who shares our vision,” Yazbek said. “We are delighted that we can now welcome DEG, one of the largest European development finance institutions, not only as a financing partner, but as a shareholder in our group.”SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Are Ductless Minisplits Overpriced?

first_imgGreen Basics: Ductless Minisplit Heat PumpsRules of Thumb for Ductless MinisplitsHow To Buy a Ductless MinisplitDare to DIY A Minisplit Install?Installing a Ductless Minisplit SystemJust Two Minisplits Heat and Cool the Whole HouseMinisplit Heat Pumps and Zero-Net-Energy HomesLoving My Minisplits Ductless Minisplits May Not Be As Efficient As We Thought You’re paying for less riskThe question has come up before, GBA senior editor Martin Holladay points out, when Justin Fink, the editor of Fine Homebuilding magazine posted a question about installing a minisplit himself when he renovated his garage shop. That was back in 2013.“If you pay for installation by a qualified contractor, you are paying for warranty service and future callbacks,” Holladay adds. “You are also ensuring that Mitsubishi doesn’t void the equipment warranty because of an installation error.”Ben Balcombe suggests there’s more to a higher-than-expected estimate from a small company than Peter might realize.“Like many, I’ve been through these thoughts and discussions about how an $1,800 unit can cost $4,000 installed,” Balcombe says. “Personally, I work for a company that employs [about] 20,000 people, so I have no experience in the costs of running a small business, but when you actually step back and think about all the costs that a small HVAC company has to incur, you quickly get to big numbers.”That includes wages, taxes, real estate, the purchase and maintenance of work vehicles, training, liability insurance, and medical insurance.“All of that is included in the price,” he says. “It’s not that Bobby HVAC is pocketing $2K for a couple of hours’ work that you could do yourself. If I was working out my budget for a project I would look to do the ‘easy stuff’ myself (framing, painting, basic plumbing, and electrical) and use what I save there to pay for a pro to install a minisplit.” The installer is offering an outdated unitDana Dorsett checks the details of Peter’s original post and offers this thought: the Mr. Slim minisplit included in the quote is a 10-year-old model that has been discontinued. “You don’t want it,” he says.A new model, Mitsubishi’s FH12NA, “has a significant efficiency advantage over the FE12, which would only be sold by third-party remainder and surplus houses these days, not standard Mitsubishi distributors, though you can still get repair parts for them,” Dorsett says.Dorsett says that in his area, the FH12 would cost about $4,000. “I’d only consider installing an FE12 if it came in under $3,000,” he says.“If you’re using it primarily for AC, note that the FH tests a SEER 26+, whereas the FE is SEER 23, which is still a double-digit percentage difference, if not quite as much as the heating efficiency delta,” Dorsett says. “Of course, unless you did an aggressive Manual J — well enough to have a real handle on the heating and cooling loads — there’s no way to know if either of those models is appropriate for your house/zone.”Wait a little longer, an anonymous poster tells Peter, and you’ll be able to buy an even more efficient Mr. Cool minisplit — and one that includes a warranty for DIY installation.“The Mr. Cool DIY series comes with a warranty for DIY,” the poster says. “And by the way, minisplit costs about $50 (US) to install in China. You can get in the U.S. a Midea 24,000 Btu/h unit for $1,300, 20 SEER. Oh, Midea [has] got a 40 SEER (yes, 40 SEER) unit coming out this year, and it should be dirt cheap, too.“More kids should get into the HVAC business instead of college,” the post adds. “Easy money.” Smart plan or not? That’s the topic for this Q&A Spotlight. The answer depends on system complexityJimmy Black says he’s probably saving a couple of thousand dollars by helping a local contractor install a 3-ton, two-head ductless Midea system, but the potential savings of doing the whole job himself weren’t that enticing.“I priced doing the system myself, but by the time you add up all of the ductwork (I have some custom pieces), lines, and time involved I was well into $4-$5,000,” Black writes. “Not to mention that simply troubleshooting any problems is going to cost you big bucks, since you have to evacuate the whole line set for many issues. Expect $200-$400 per service call.“I’m spending the extra to make sure it’s done correctly, but mostly to have a 24/7, no questions asked, 10-year warranty.”If he had installed the system himself, he might still be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, but then had to ship a defective unit back and wait for a replacement to arrive. “In Florida, 2-3 weeks without AC is not an option,” he adds. “I also wish to never again mess with maintenance after my renovation is done. I’m ready to relax!”That said, if you’re installing a small, simple system — one outdoor unit and one indoor unit — do it yourself, Black says.“If you have multiple zones, you can still do DIY,” he adds. “Do several 1/1 units. That way if something goes wrong, only the one head is offline, and it will be much easier to troubleshoot, and if all else fails simply replace the unit.” Ductless minisplit heat pumps have received a tremendous amount of attention in the last several years, and Peter L. would like to include one in his own house. There’s only one problem: an estimate that seems far higher than it should.“I was quoted $4,800 to purchase and install a Mitsubishi Mr. Slim 1-ton unit (MSZFE12NA),” Peter writes at GBA’s Q&A forum. “That seems very high. Especially since it’s a new build and the 3-inch hole is already in the wall.”Installers see minisplits as a niche market, Peter says, and because they’re not making money on the ductwork that a conventional heating and cooling system would require, they are charging “crazy install prices” to make up the difference.In this case, Peter estimates that the installation should cost about $500, not the $2,000 his contractor has in mind.That makes installing the system himself an attractive option.“I might go the route of the DIY minisplit from Home Depot — Mr.Cool,” he says “I can get a 1-ton unit for $1,300 and install it myself since the refrigerant lines are pre-charged. The Mr. Cool unit (17 SEER) is not as efficient as the Mitsubishi (26 SEER) but at $1,300 for the 1-ton unit that cannot be beat. Even if it dumps out at 7 years of age, I got my money’s worth.” RELATED ARTICLES No, $2,000 is way too muchTo Tim Brown, who runs a small business himself, the $2,000 installation charge is way too much, and reflects a belief in the HVAC community that minisplits are a “cash cow” not unlike photovoltaic systems.“What I’m finding with the minisplits (at least in northwest Ontario) is [they] are new, exotic, and well outside the comfort zone that most of the companies work in. The attitude is Hey, if you really want that fancy new unit, you gotta pay whatever I ask. It is particularly true when there are only a couple of companies that have ever touched a minisplit.“I have to pull the trigger this summer on a minisplit and will install it myself before I pay what I consider a predatory rate to have a ‘pro’ do it,” Brown continues. “I can buy two units: screw up the first one/throw it away and get another for the cost of one professionally installed unit.”When Brown runs the numbers, he comes up with no more than an eight-hour day, and that includes an hour to test the system and have a cup of coffee with the customer before leaving. At most, $1,000 ought to cover it.“Just throwing that our for discussion,” he says.Brown’s claims ring a bell with Steve S., who writes that the oversized effort to get a minisplit installed in his house was simply too much.“I had five different contractors look at our project — a 1,500-square-foot, two-bedroom Cape Cod that I had just spray foam insulated, which I thought was a perfect candidate for a minisplit system, and all of them talked about how it would be better to install traditional HVAC,” he writes.“I gave up on the minisplits.” Our expert’s opinionHere’s what GBA technical director Peter Yost thinks:I checked in with a local high-performance HVAC contractor, ARC Mechanical, on the issue of affordable installation of simple ductless minisplit heat pumps. ARC completed approximately 150 minisplit heat pump installations last year, many of them for single-family homes. Alex Wilson in our shop recommended I talk with Mark Russwick, the guy he worked with on the HVAC system in his own home.Mark started off by saying that he admires anyone who likes to take on technical challenges on their own home. “It’s the Yankee in us, and I include myself this way,” said Mark. “But I think there are good reasons to go the pro route on minisplit heat pump installations, and in fact, the $4,800 total cost is not that far off the mark.”Here is what Mark laid out for me in our interview, in a really clear way:1. You need a vacuum pump. Even if the compressor and the line set come charged, you will need to purge the interior head, which will not come pre-charged. And if you don’t ensure that the entire system is pressurized with just refrigerant, you run the risk of inefficient operation and probably damage or reduction in service life of the compressor.2. These are relatively new systems and certified training ensures a warrantied install. ARC is an elite Diamond installer for Mitsubishi Electric, which means all of their installs have a 12-year warranty. “The trainings are important because these are high performance systems and the field is changing and improving really fast. Tough to stay on top of the game,” Mark stated.3. The cost of equipment is about $1,750. Mark showed me an actual invoice for a Mitsubishi 1-ton, single-zone, Hyper-Heat, including the compressor, indoor head, line set, controllers, concrete pad, and 18-inch compressor stand.Mark also showed me a spreadsheet that ARC had worked up for Green Mountain Power for ARC to complete about 200 projects. So these are quantity-discounted costs. The install included:$150 line hide, including wall inlet, two straight sections, one coupling, one end outlet, spray foam, and caulking for a standard 30-foot line length.$60 control wire and drain, at $2 per foot.$1,280 labor — two guys, five hours each at job, including travel time.$725 electrical work — 240-volt 20-amp wiring 50 feet to panel, and including code-required exterior GFI duplex service outlet (labor and materials).The total cost, Mark said, is “right around four grand.“Given the quantity-discount in our numbers and the fact that our labor rates might be lower than your GBA poster (Pacific Northwest), not as far off from $4,800 as you might expect,” he said.Finally, I checked in with mechanical engineer Bart Bales and he added an interesting perspective:“One consideration for all types of heat pumps is the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) standard test for performance conducted at 47° F. Organizations such as the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership (VEEP) and the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation (VEIC) are advocating for testing and Output/Coefficients of Performance (COP) for temperatures of 17° and 5° F.”last_img read more

first_img​Former ref Halsey: Man Utd lucky to keep Rashford goalby Freddie Taylor4 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Premier League referee Mark Halsey believes Manchester United were fortunate in their 1-1 draw with Liverpool.The Red Devils opened the scoring through Marcus Rashford, after an excellent cross from Daniel James.But the goal could have been been ruled out for an earlier foul from Victor Lindelof on Divock Origi.Ex-ref Halsey wrote in The Sun: “Victor Lindelof fouls Divock Origi by catching him from behind in the build-up to Marcus Rashford’s strike.”You could argue that it was a ‘clear and obvious’ error not to award a free-kick to Liverpool.”A far lesser infringement led to Burnley having a goal chalked off by VAR at Leicester — these inconsistencies need to be ironed out.”VAR was correct to disallow Sadio Mane’s goal, under new interpretation of law 12 (handling the ball), as replays showed the ball clearly touched his arm.”The ball hit Fred’s shoulder in Manchester United’s box in injury time but there is no way that is a ‘clear and obvious’ mistake so Liverpool were never going to be awarded a penalty for that.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

4 days agoJordan Henderson says Liverpool must learn from Man Utd draw

first_imgJordan Henderson says Liverpool must learn from Man Utd drawby Paul Vegas4 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveJordan Henderson says Liverpool must learn from Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United.The Reds were unable to flex their muscles throughout the clash and relied on Adam Lallana to score an equaliser with time running out.Asked if a point was a fair outcome, the captain told the club’s website: “Probably. I didn’t think we performed well enough in the first half, not our usual selves really, especially with the ball.”We could have been a lot better but I thought second half was a lot better. We changed it a little bit tactically, which helped us, and I thought the longer the game went on we were pushing for that winner, and towards that last five to 10 minutes I thought we were going to get it.”Ox came close with a great strike with his left foot and we kept pushing but, overall, a fair reflection of the game would have to be a point.”But, like I say, we have got to be much better for the 90 minutes. I was disappointed we couldn’t come here and put on a top performance because I felt as though we could have done that today.”When you can’t win, you don’t lose, and that’s the sign of a good team. But we’ve got to learn from the game today and make sure it doesn’t happen again.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
