Konah, a sixteen year old boy did not listen to his poor mother, Madam Kaymah, each time she told him, “My son, let us go on the farm.”Konah would always tell his mother, “Mama it is too early to go on the farm. You may go ahead mother, when the sun rises, I will come to you later.”Instead of paying heed to his poor mother’s advice, Konah would always remain behind each time his mother and the rest of the children were about to go to the farm. Even when his father, Mr. Kolleh encouraged him to go along, he would not heed his call.Konah’s obstinacy soon reached a point where no one ever bothered him to go to the farm. Not even his mother or older folks in the town who often would advise younger ones to obey their parents would pay attention to him.All they probably thought was that Konah was a man of his own and who would not listen to any advice.Konah continued this way until one day; he soon experienced the harsh reality of how it normally did not pay for children not to listen to their parents!Not knowing the reason why Konah had always refused to go along with his parents, it apparently had something to do with the presence of a certain genie from the mountains who usually sat at the middle of the pathway leading to the farm.Konah’s father Kolleh did not have any idea of the genie’s presence and as a result never consulted Old man Nanmo, now hairy with age, who was by then the only one who knew about the legacy of the town since the latter’s great grand father was the founder of the town.So when Mr. Kolleh completed his farm, Old Man Nanmo gave him the go ahead to harvest the crops on the farm before his efforts went in vain; but the old man kept this strange revelation secret. This particular genie was also noted for feeding on human beings. The genie would be at the middle of the path waiting for anyone traveling that route to devour.Konah one fateful day decided to journey to the farm when he encountered the genie.The carnivorous genie said to him, “Where are you coming from and where are you going?”Konah braced his courage and answered, “I am coming from town and going on the farm to my parents.”The genie retorted, “Yes, indeed you are going on the farm to your parent, my dear child; but unfortunately for you sing a nice song that may amuse my listening ears!”The genie’s ears looked more like fanners. He was rather ugly and had a funny appearance. And besides being ugly, there was something quite peculiar about the genie that Konah felt disgusted.With that instruction Konah started to cry, as he raised the song, “My mother told me let’s go to the farm; but I told her, mother go ahead and when the sun rises, I will follow. Oh, mother come for me; if only I had listened to my mother!”As Konah sang, the genie became impressed and told him to continue to sing. Konah sang and sang; then the genie, having an ulterior motive wanted to get raid of Konah, said, “Oh, what a beautiful song! Indeed, come closer my dear, stand on my feet and sing some more so that I may hear your sweet voice quite loud and clear.”But as innocent as Konah came to be, he did not know exactly what the clever genie was up to, and therefore, Konah did exactly as he was told by standing on his feet and he began to sing again.The genie said, “How wonderful of you my child, now climb onto my lap and sing some more of your fine song.” And Konah did as he was taught.The genie further said, “You will definitely become a very good vocalist some day my dear; but just climb into my hands and sing some more.”Konah did as he was told even though he was becoming hungry. Then the genie said, “Well done my dear, but just come to me and do me the last favor by standing on my lips and sing the last stanza of your fine song, then you may go.”At that, Konah soon became happy, as a flicker of hope was now visible on his innocent face! He probably thought that he would soon be released by his captor. And so, Konah hurrily climbed on top of the mighty genie’s gigantic lips.Barely did Konah climb atop the greedy and hungry genie’s sizeable lips than the hungry genie swallowed him within the twinkle of an eye! How happy the hungry genie might have been be then, having gone hungry for some them now, once no one would easily tread its path!Yet, though Konah was a stubborn boy, he was also smart, too! Konah always traveled with his penknife down into his pocket! And so, no sooner did Konah descend into the mighty genie’s sizeable stomach than Konah reaching out for his penknife, as sharp as tow-edges sword! Thus, Konah immediately opened the genie’s stomach wide apart and off he hurriedly ran away to his parents on the farm to tell them the news about his recent adventure with the genie.Once on the farm, Konah asked for a cup of water to quench his thirst before narrating his ordeal! He explained what happened to him on his way to the farm and what he had learned from it, as a lesson.Konah’s parents could not believe him because they felt his narrative was a mere fantasy! And so, they converged on the scene of the incident later only to behold the sizeable corpse of the mighty genie lying on the ground, face down!It was then that they believed him and immediately sent for everyone from far and nearby towns and villages to come and see what Konah had done!Everyone that came on the scene was amazed and glad all the same for what Konah did was seemed unbelievable, taking into account the size of the dead genie, as they carried Konah on their shoulders, chanting, “Little Konah the giant killer! Little Konah, our young hero.”“A small axe has cut down a big tree,” observed elderly folks in the village.But who knows? If God had not been on Konah’s side he would probably nor survive that grave adventure! So, it is best for children to listen to their parents’ pieces of advice rather than to have that experience of Konah.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Our Roving Reporter, Sanitation and Fisheries Correspondent Edwin Fayia has been writing a series of reports on Liberia’s southeastern region, some good news and some bad. The good news is that that region is Ebola-free, for now. The bad news is that the southeast is plagued not only with very bad roads, but more seriously, with atrocious (appalling, awful) sanitation, especially in Harper, capital of Maryland County.We think it is a great blessing that Ebola has not yet touched that sub-region, and we pray that it remain that way. But we there is a lot we can do to ensure that it remain free from the virus: we need to help Maryland, especiallyHarper, clean up the sanitation mess there, especially along the city’s beaches. According to Correspondent Fayia, these beaches, which are supposed to be attracting throngs of tourists for enjoyment, are the scenes of something totally different, defecation. It is sadly to the beaches that people go to ease themselves.If, therefore, we want the southeast to remain Ebola-free, then the government, the county and city administrations and all the people should, as a matter of urgency, seriously attack the sanitation menace in the southeast, especially Harper, Cape Palmas, and make the whole clean. The people should start using their beaches for recreation and enjoyment, not as toilets.The same was true a year or two ago before Maritime Commissioner Binya Kesselly organized several crews of sanitation workers, at Maritime’s expense, to clean up Monrovia’s beaches, from South Beach to West Point, to Claratown, to Logan Town, to New Kru Town. This has brought great relief to the people in these communities.But what is the link between poor sanitation and Ebola? The Chief Medical Officer of the John F. Kennedy Medical Center, Dr. Billy Johnson, told the Daily Observer on Sunday that poor sanitation causes the Ebola virus to spread faster. “That,” he said, “is why we find the virus spreading so much faster in poor socioeconomic communities that anywhere else.”Dr. Johnson recalled that when Ebola first attacked Zaire (Congo) few years ago, one town of 400,000 people with no running water, no electricity and very poor sanitation was devastated by the virus, leading to so many deaths. That brought worldwide attention to the Ebola virus. Dr. Johnson appealed to city managements throughout the country and the government as a whole to give priority attention to good sanitation, because it is in poor sanitary environments that the Ebola virus thrives, and spreads quickly. It is conveyed through sweat and other body fluids, urine and feces. So when we have people urinating and defecating all over the place, we are then asking for more Ebola trouble, not less.The JFK Chief Medical Officer spoke of a documentary currently being shown on ELBC Television called NOVA EBOLA, which tells the story of the poor village in Zaire that was consumed by Ebola. He advised that the station replay the video many times and share it with other television stations because it will help people understand the relationship between Ebola and poor sanitation.The point we are trying to stress in this editorial is that all of us should get involved in maintaining proper sanitation in all our neighborhoods. Those who live in neighborhoods where garbage is indiscriminately thrown about should become good and caring neighbors and put a stop to it. We should alert the appropriate authorities and ensure that they DO something to improve the situation. Today, no one in any neighborhood should sit supinely and permit people to throw garbage indiscriminately about.Besides, we appeal to all city governments and to the Ministries of Health and Social Welfare and Public Works to join in the fight for proper sanitation throughout all capital and other cities and all communities around the country. This is definitely one of the essential ways to fight Ebola.Dr. Johnson reminds us that the Ebola virus is “very fragile.” It fears heat, cleanliness, good and proper sanitation. The Virus cannot thrive in decent, clean and safe environments. Cleanliness is key to prevention.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Liberia’s Acting Minister of Finance and Development Planning Amara M. Konneh has disclosed that the government and its implementing partners are considering hiring the services of local businesses with strong capacity to deliver to supply locally produce goods to fight the Ebola virus in the country. The government recently hired four key United Nations agencies to implement part of the fight against Ebola on its behalf amid capacity and others challenges. According to Minister Konneh, purchasing locally produced goods from the domestic Liberian private sector to supply Ebola treatment centers (ETUs) through the UN agencies during this critical period is crucial to empowering small businesses. Mr. Konneh spoke in Monrovia recently during the signing ceremony of a contractual agreement with four key UN agencies including the World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Children Education Fund (UNICEF), the World Food Program (WFP) and the UN Office for Project Services (UNOPS) to implement part of the US$52 million grant given to Liberia by the World Bank Group. Liberia contracted the services of the four specialized United UN agencies under the Ebola Emergency Project (EMP) to provide what Minister Konneh called ‘critical and much needed goods and services’ in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus disease in the country. In the agreement with the UN agencies, the WHO will support the procurement of personal protective equipment (PPEs) and render other technical services; UNICEF will procure essential drugs and supplies and provides water supplies while WFP will provide food to quarantined and Ebola-affected population and UNOPS will support the procurement of ambulances. In response to a question posed by our business desk, the Liberian Finance Minister noted that the government has urged the UN agencies contracted to hire the services of local companies that have the capacity to supply locally produced goods and services to ETUs and others centers. Mr. Konneh disclosed that the government has encouraged its UN contractors to consider things that can be purchased locally. “We have economic challenge here as well and so we have encouraged our (UN) implementing partners to consider things that can be purchased from our local small medium enterprises (SMEs) and they are very open to that,” he said. The Minister, however, advised local businesses to beware of the huge that would sprout at Ebola treatment units under construction if they wanted to do business with the UN agencies. “We will not allow our people to die because of Liberianization,” he added. “You [businesses] have to be able to provide supply the things that we need on time without any hindrance.” “We don’t need any bureaucratic bottlenecks when it comes to the supply of needed goods and services. We don’t also want any delay in supplying. We want those things are not produced locally airlifted here on time without any delay.”Mr. Konneh warned that the government and its UN implementing partners are not in the position go through businesses to place an order for goods that would take over two weeks to deliver. “We are not prepared for that at this moment because our people are dying,” he said. Liberian owned manufacturing companies such as the National Toiletries Inc., (NTI) located in Paynesville City, Aqualife also in Paynesville, MANCO on Bushrod Island and Aquarius in Margibi County, amongst produce made in Liberia products. The NTI, which is owned by Liberian businessman Fomba Trawally, for example, produces toiletries and detergents of kinds and currently supplies Guinea and few West African countries. Aqualife and Aquarius are the top two mineral water companies in the country, while MANCO produces detergents and other products. The fact is that all ETUs will need toiletries supply, water and detergents. With the assurance from Minister Konneh that whatever that can be produced locally will be considered purchase, many businesses are now gearing up to establish strong links with the UN agencies. He assured the public that UN agencies hired by the government have the experience and the capacity to fight the Ebola virus disease (EVD). WHO representative to Liberia Mr. Peter Graaff, for his part, expressed strong interest in working with the domestic private sector in the area of supplies to fight Ebola. As part of its contribution towards the fight against the EVD in Liberia, the World Bank Group recently disbursed US$52 million grant directly to the government to fight the virus for the next six months.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Instead, Lacazette was fit to start at the Emirates Stadium and scored Arsenal’s goal.United manager Mourinho made a pointed jibe towards Wenger when asked about his team news ahead of Sunday’s derby against early Premier League pace-setters Manchester City.“I’m telling the truth,” Mourinho said when listing the availability of some of his players. “It’s the truth, eh? No stories of Lacazette or (Manchester City midfielder) David Silva. All the truth.”Wenger, speaking ahead of Arsenal’s Europa League game against BATE Borisov, was asked about Mourinho’s comments and said he was expecting to go into the United game without the former Lyon star.“I thought he wouldn’t play. In the end, he could play. What did you want me to do, leave him at home?” Wenger said on Wednesday.“I’m always honest. I thought really that he wouldn’t play, that’s what I had been told.“After, he had a test on Friday morning and went to the game. We weren’t sure he would play but he tried and he played, that’s part of football.”Arsenal welcome Belarusian Premier League champions BATE on Thursday having already sealed top spot in Group H.Wenger has made mass changes throughout the competition, handing valuable game time to the likes of Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud.Even though progression into the last 32 has been assured, the Frenchman still intends to play those on the fringes of the first team, rather than blood a team of youngsters.Asked how winning the group would affect his team selection, Wenger said: “Not too much, because I have many players available who need competition.“Next week we go into a week with three games and so some players need competition, some experienced players. We’ll play quite an experienced team tomorrow.”Wenger also warned the injury-plagued Wilshere to be careful when ice skating after pictures emerged of the midfielder with his family at a rink earlier in the week.“It’s not ideal. For your balance it’s not bad but for a footballer I don’t think it’s great. It depends as well on what you do,” he said.“You can do ice skating by bringing your child on and just making sure nothing happens to him, or (you can do) ice skating violently, I don’t think he did that.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger rejected the claim from Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho that he was playing mind gamesLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 6-Arsene Wenger has hit back at Jose Mourinho by insisting he wasn’t using gamesmanship when he picked Alexandre Lacazette to face Manchester United 24 hours after saying he would miss the game with a groin injury.France striker Lacazette was a surprise selection for Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat against United last weekend as Gunners boss Wenger had stated he would miss the game due to the injury he suffered against Huddersfield at half-time.
We’re going WAY back in time for today’s vintage video, as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of ‘Mighty Mick’ Quinn’s brilliant debut for Newcastle United.Everyone’s favourite adopted Geordie netted four goals in his first game at St James’ Park, leading the Magpies to a 5-2 win over Leeds.Check out the highlights above!
1 1 Daniel Sturridge is in contention to play against Everton Should Sturridge get the nod, it seems almost certain that he will partner Mario Balotelli in attack, although his lack of match fitness suggests he will not play for the full 90 minutes.With two strikers though Rodgers faces the conundrum as to whether he should utilise a midfield diamond or add another body in and around central midfield to ensure Steven Gerrard isn’t over-run again.We suggest that he could go from something akin to a 4-2-2-2, similar to how Manchester City operated at times last season, allowing Adam Lallana and Raheem Sterling to offer width and creativity, with Jordan Henderson taking on a majority of the central responsibilities.Much like Everton, Liverpool’s defence has been questionable at times this season, but given the difficulties in playing three central defenders, we suggest Rodgers would find more joy and solidity in playing two, with his usual full-backs.Liverpool fans, how do you think you’ll line-up against Everton? Comment below… For Liverpool, this has been a season which has – so far – failed to get started, but the Redmen will need to find some sort of resolve as they take on an Everton side that are currently experiencing similar trying times.Two defeats in the last two games is hardly the form of title contenders, so for Brendan Rodgers’ side, nothing short of a win is required when they step out at Anfield for the first Merseyside derby of the season.Recent history appears to swing in the Redmen’s favour, with Liverpool unbeaten in their last eight in all competitions against their Blue neighbours, and Kopites will be hoping that this will finally be the catalyst sorely needed to kick-start their season into life.The big question is how does Rodgers repair the damage of two consecutive league defeats, and is it time to pick a formation and stick to it?The answer to the latter will depend largely on the inclusion of Daniel Sturridge in the starting line-up. The England man has resumed to full training and Rodgers cautious to confirm whether he will be ready in time for Saturday’s clash.“He is someone that responds well to treatment and it’s gone well – he’s out on the field,” Rodgers said during his pre-match press conference. “There’s still a couple of days to go yet before the game. The most important thing is that he is nearer to fitness.“He certainly won’t be match fit – he hasn’t played for a few weeks. But it would be great to have him back because he’s a wonderful player for us.”One player that seems certain to feature though is Raheem Sterling, despite the 19-year-old having played the full 120 minutes of Liverpool’s Capital One Cup victory over Middlesbrough.Below is how Liverpool could line-up against Everton:
