Boyz will bounce back – Austin

first_img SHARING THE BLAME “Everyone will take responsibility and move forward,” he added, while noting there is no discontent in the camp. “It is a good set of guys playing; we go out there and represent Jamaica fully well. Everyone wants to play well, everyone wants to do good. Sometimes it goes bad, and we will take responsibility and improve,” he added. The Jamaicans’ loss has put them under increased pressure to win away to the Haitians as Panama cruised to the top with three points in Group B, while Costa Rica, who beat Haiti 1-0, also raced to three points. “Definitely, we will be looking to bounce back. We have done this before. Everyone put in the right effort,” Austin said. “We are a group; we win together and lose together. We are gonna talk about this, and we are gonna work and give it our all to turn it around and get three points against Haiti.” “Everyone knows what we have to do, and whoever goes on the pitch has a responsibility of doing their best to winning the game, with the coaching staff. We win together, and we lose together. we just have to keep focusing and working hard so we can go to Haiti and change this result,” he said. Admitting that last Friday’s 2-0 loss to Panama was due to a flat performance by his team, Reggae Boyz captain Rodolph Austin says he will be looking to lead from the front and lift his team to a better result against Haiti today. The Jamaicans will today face the Haitians in their second game of the semi-final round of the CONCACAF FIFA World Cup qualifiers. “We came out flat, and everyone knows we didn’t play good tonight (Friday), and we have to take the responsibility for it as a team. We didn’t start the game well, and we conceded two soft goals. We just have to bounce back and focus, and look ahead to Haiti’s game; that’s the plan,” Austin said at Friday night’s post-game press conference.last_img read more

‘Cellcom Playing Politics’

first_imgALP Standard Bearer and former Maritime boss, Benoni W. UreyMobile telecommunications subscribers in Liberia are watching with great interest and anticipation as the rivalry between Cellcom Telecommunications and Lonestar Cell MTN escalates. The rivalry has raged on for several years now, mainly as a war of wit, with both companies using highly creative, yet provocative marketing messages attempting to woo customers to either side. But this war of wit has escalated to a vicious war of words – blunt, scathing, shaming public remarks that might soon require the intervention of an umpire. Telco Sector ‘Politicized’In a sharp reaction to a press statement released earlier this week by Cellcom, Lonestar warned her rival not to politicize the telecommunications sector. Cellcom had reacted to a Mach 14, 2016 letter by Benoni Urey, Chairman of Lonestar Cell MTN, which called the attention of the President of Liberia to apparent damaging effects of certain promotions (he called them ‘freebies’) offered by telecommunications service providers to the Liberian economy. Urey, in his March 14, 2016 letter, explained how the government of Liberia was losing tens of millions of United States dollars in potential tax revenue as a result of the promotions. He also linked the loss of potential tax revenue to loss of industry revenue and subsequent loss of industry jobs. Cellcom, however, dismissed Urey’s claims as “carefully calculated attempts to prolong Lonestar/MTN’s goal of restricting competition and thereby continuing to exploit the Liberian people.” Cellcom also described its own promotions as “a way of giving back to the people of Liberia and ensuring that Liberians have a little extra money in their pockets.” “Cellcom’s claim that its promotion is meant to help the less fortunate Liberians is totally ridiculous,” said Zenu Miller, Lonestar’s communications director, adding that, “the truth of the matter is that Cellcom only introduced the US$1 for three days to gain market share at the expense of Lonestar and positioned itself to sell to Orange of La Cote D’Ivoire in the midst of trumped up numbers. “If Cellcom insists on playing politics in the telecommunications communications industry, it must be prepared to answer questions on its shady relations with the Liberian Maritime Program and its owner Yoram Jay Coham of the Liberian International Ship and Corporate Registry (LISCR) to the Liberian People,” Miller said.Lonestar Cell MTN was recognized by the government of Liberia several years in a row as the largest tax paying phone company. The company said while it has the ability to offer better promotions than Cellcom or any GSM company at any level, it chose not to do so at the detriment of the Liberian economy. However Cellcom continues to recall Lonestar’s “exploitative” market entry at the beginning of the last decade, when the company charged US$65 for a SIM card. Lonestar Cell MTN however warned Cellcom against politicizing the telecommunications sector and projecting itself as the only cellphone company that is in the interest of the Liberian people. The company noted, as a good corporate citizen it has the right to sound an alarm and inform the Liberian government against negative tax collection in the telecommunications industry. “In our 15th year of operation, Lonestar Cell MTN is resourced to compete against any service provider on promotions or innovative services,” the company said. Lonestar trying to help?In May this year, the Legislature received a letter from President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf proposing, among other things, the imposition of excise of US$0.01 (one U.S. cent) per minute on all phone calls to support the 2016/2017 Fiscal Budget. The proposed excise, if approved by the Legislature, would take effect July 1, 2016, which is the beginning of the government’s fiscal year. As the national budget has not yet passed, it is not clear as to whether the charges would be retroactive to adhere to the July 1 date. Urey’s letter was dated two months before the President’s letter to the Legislature, which suggests that she had given some serious consideration to the matter, but declined to address Urey’s concern about the ‘freebies’. Instead the President proposed a tax on all calls, across the board. What remains unclear, however, is whether the calls covered by the 3-day promotions would be taxed, since in fact they are registered as ‘free calls’.In any case, the Plenary of the House of Representatives mandated its Committees on Ways, Means and Finance and Development Planning, and Judiciary to review the President’s proposal. The committees have not yet reported back to Plenary on the matter. ‘For good of the country’Meanwhile, Lonestar Cell MTN says it has a binding duty to pay its rightful taxes; that every corporation that means well for the Country must join the bandwagon in paying its legitimate taxes due the government on the promotions. Lonestar Cell MTN also clarified that its Board Chairman did not support the end of any promotion, but rather proffered the thought that GSM companies must pay taxes on free and below market calls to government. “The concerns raised by Chairman Urey must not be used as a political tool, but an avenue for strengthening the economic gains of the country. If Cellcom and its CEO are boasting of a successful promotion, why was the Cellcom’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in Guinea expelled for the same promotion? The Guinean Government realized that the promotion was bad for its economy and the value of service,” the release noted.Lonestar Cell MTN said it has shown the raw facts to the Liberian government and the negative impact on its revenue collections, coupled with the results of the market and value destructions of these promotions; in the absence of political innuendos. “For those who have ears to listen, please listen, for we need to stop playing politics with tax payments for the good of this country and its people,” the release cautioned.

Littlerock school shows off its new cafeteria

first_imgLITTLEROCK – Students, the staff and school officials celebrated the opening of Alpine School’s new cafeteria and kitchen with a ceremony Tuesday. The expansion of the school’s 1950s-era cafeteria and kitchen cost nearly $1.1 million.. “Everybody is excited. It’s bright and clean and new and modern, and the cafeteria personnel love all the additional space, and it’s much more efficient and much more safe,” Principal Randall Jolin said before the ceremony. “The old kitchen – all the codes were different back then – didn’t meet current standards at all. It was an essential and necessary improvement.” District officials had been discussing improving the kitchen situation since about 2001. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The cafeteria was supposed to have opened last spring, but bad weather and issues with adding a modular building delayed the opening to September. The ceremony was then postponed for months in which officials said reaction on campus was positive. “The kids are very ecstatic. It’s nice to have a full-functioning kitchen back there, all nice and new,” Assistant Superintendent Steve Doyle said. The old kitchen and cafeteria, designed for 100 students at a sitting, were too small for the school whose enrollment now tops 600. The size of the building was increased by about one-third. The project was paid for with developer fees and money set aside in a special account for cafeteria remodeling and modernization work. The school itself was built in 1929, with the original cafeteria in the basement. The current cafeteria and kitchen were built in 1958. last_img read more
