Two Quarantined Centers at Soul Clinic Community Get Anti-Ebola Materials

first_imgThe Soul Clinic Community in Paynesville, badly hit by the Ebola crisis, was recently the proud recipient of critically needed anti-Ebola virus materials valued at US$3,700.00 from Alfalit-Liberia and Liberia-Ghana Missions.Several community leaders who attended the presentation ceremony on Monday described the humanitarian gestures of the two non-profit entities as a complete rescue mission intended to save the lives of fellow Liberians.It may be recalled since August 2014, Soul Clinic Development Association (SCDA) as part of its Ebola awareness initiatives, quarantined several families suspected of  Ebola infection.The SCDA leadership, headed by administrator and educator Jonathan Enders, disclosed that the quarantining action was carried out through extensive consultations with the affected families.On top of the pathetic situation of the quarantined families was acute shortage of food and critically needed anti-Ebola materials and essential sanitary pads.Chairman Enders also claimed that several SOS calls had been made to the relevant Liberian Government agencies and partners for urgent assistance for those quarantined, but there was no good response.The scarce resources from the coffers of the SCDA were partly used to cater to obtain critically needed food and materials needed by the quarantined Liberians.Chairman Enders further disclosed that the SCDA leadership was able to initiate a self-help contact tracing and teaching venture that led to the identification of several suspected, probable and confirmed cases of the deadly Ebola virus in the Soul Clinic Community in Paynesville.He also disclosed that one of the quarantined homes was closed on Monday after three weeks or 21 days of observation, treatment and monitoring of the suspected, probable and confirmed infected household members.He also indicated that there were places that were established for five weeks without food and appeals were sounded. Alfalit-Liberia and LGM were among the few who came to help the infected Liberians at Soul Clinic Community.The food and anti-Ebola materials donated by Alfalit-Liberia and LGM will be distributed in several affected communities and not only in the Soul Clinic Community.  “We did not quarantine those Liberians for them to die, rather to save our precious Liberians’ lives at the Soul Clinic Community in Paynesville,” Chairman Enders concluded.In remarks, the Program Officer of Alfalit-Liberia, George Stewart, recounted the sound leadership of Chairman Enders and team in the extensive fight against the deadly Ebola virus in the country.Mr. Stewart pointed out that for the past couple of days and weeks the LGM and Alfalit-Liberia had seen the need for the Soul Clinic Community in its efforts to eradicate the deadly Ebola virus.The LGM and Alfalit-Liberia leaderships are aware that the Ebola virus is not only killing our people but has also stretched the Liberian economy to the limit.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The Queen quashes Meghan Markles Shocking agenda Royals not pleased

first_imgMeghan MarkleGetty ImagesMeghan Markle seems set on asserting her independence in the Royal Family and she seems to have Prince Hary agreeing with her.Reportedly Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have split their household from Kate Middleton and Prince William – and the Queen’s decision to keep the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s office at Buckingham Palace prevents Meghan from overshadowing other senior royals, royal expert Angela Mollard claims.Apparently, with Kate Middleton and Prince William remaining at Kensington Palace, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex now have their offices under the direction of the Queen at Buckingham Palace. It comes after reports suggested the couple originally had plans to break away with their own court at Windsor, which the Queen has refused.Ms. Mollard explained: “The Queen is keeping a strong arm on how they operate, they’re not allowed to go rogue.”Ms. Mollard continued: “I do actually, I think it’s really smart.””Someone of Meghan’s status and previous star performance has the ability to position herself very much as an Angelina (Jolie) or an Amal (Clooney).”Now, nothing matters more with the Royal Family than the brand being cohesive, there can’t be an offshoot.” She explained: “We saw it with Diana.”Meghan Markle being compared to Princess Diana may have serious implications for the Duchess of Sussex, the Royal Family might not take kindly to an outsider coming and trying to steal the spotlight from Prince Harry.  Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesMs. Mollard added to the Princess Diana comparison by saying: “She owned the stage, so Charles’ very progressive work on sustainability and environmentalism just got nothing.”There was no coverage, no one was interested.””As it happens, those things have become incredibly relevant now, he was a very forward-thinking man.”It must have been so frustrating to him to be overshadowed.”She concluded: “I think it serves us all well to have a cohesive Royal Family.”The Queen needs it to be cohesive.”Meghan Markle may have to take things slow and be more diplomatic if she hopes to achieve any success as a Royal, because getting on the wrong side of the Queen may not be a good idea for her.last_img read more

Salman Khan to watch Maharshi Is he planning to act in its

first_imgSalman Khan on Twitter Live for his film Bharat.TwitterBollywood superstar Salman Khan will watch Mahesh Babu’s Maharshi, which is set to hit the screens on May 9. After Thalapathy Vijay, the B-Town is apparently planning for its Hindi remake.The promos of Maharshi have grabbed many eyeballs and generated a lot of curiosity about the movie. Mahesh Babu’s different getups, action, comedy and punch dialogues featured in its teaser and trailer have caught the attention of the film buffs, who are eagerly waiting for its release in the theatres.A film gets huge demand for its remake rights after it becomes a hit at the box office. But what is unusual about Maharshi is that there is a great demand for its rights even before it screens. It was recently rumoured that a Kollywood filmmaker showed interest in remaking Maharshi in Tamil. He has planned to rope in superstar Vijay for the lead role played by Mahesh Babu. MaharshiJust a day before its release in the cinema halls we hear that superstar Salman Khan has shown interest in the Hindi remake of Maharshi. The rumour mills are abuzz with the news that the makers are holding a special screening of the film for the Bollywood actor, who will watch the film with Prabhu Deva and the team of Dabangg 3. If he is impressed with it, he is likely to give his consent for its Hindi remake.It was recently rumoured that Dil Raju wanted to expand his production Sri Venkateswara Creations and give it pan-India appeal. He has joined hands with Boney Kapoor to produce the Hindi remake of F2 – Fun and Frustration. If Salman Khan agrees to do Maharshi remake, the Telugu producer might jointly bankroll its Hindi adaptation with another Bollywood producer.Salman Khan is one of the most popular actors from the Hindi film industry. But a remake of a Telugu film gave him a big break and catapulted him to stardom. Back in 2009, his career was on the verge of ending, when he starred in Wanted, which was the remake of Mahesh Babu’s blockbuster movie Pokiri. This remake revived his career and made him what he is today. He might accept Maharshi remake too.last_img read more

Apple Stock Slides to ThreeMonth Low After Report of iPhone XR Production

first_imgApple shares sank as much as 4.5% Monday following a report that the tech giant has scaled back production orders for its new entry-level iPhone XR model.The company’s stock drop — pushing Apple’s market cap below $1 trillion — comes after shares closed down 6.6% last Friday, to $207.48 per share, as investors reacted to the September quarter earnings results with lower iPhone unit sales and weaker-than-expected December quarter revenue guidance. [UPDATE: Apple stock closed down 2.8% on Monday, to $201.59 per share, the lowest level since Aug. 1. Shares are up 20% year to date.]According to a report Monday by Japan’s Nikkei, Apple “signaled disappointing demand” for the iPhone XR by informing manufacturing partners Foxconn and Pegatron to halt plans for additional production lines of the smartphone targeted at price-conscious consumers. That suggested a 20%-25% reduced forecast in unit sales, per the Nikkei report, which cited anonymous sources. The drop in Apple’s shares since last Thursday has cut its market cap by more than $100 billion. Even so, the company still has the biggest market valuation of any company in the world.The iPhone XR — priced starting at $749 — is meant to replace the iPhone 8 introduced a year ago. The XR model borrows its looks from the iPhone X and features an all-screen glass and aluminum design with a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina LCD display.The XR model went on sale on Friday, Oct. 26, after Apple unveiled the new model along with the pricier iPhone XS and XS Max in September. It’s available in six different colors: white, black, blue, coral, yellow, and red.In discussing the September quarter results, Apple CFO Luca Maestri said the company will stop reporting unit sales, which Wall Street has long used as a barometer to measure the health of its hardware businesses.Through the 2018 holiday shopping season, Apple is reviewing iPhone demand weekly “to adjust orders quickly in response to the market,” according to the Nikkei report.
