Caregiver Provides Updates on Kids Undergoing Treatment in US

first_imgMs. Charlesetta N. Williams, Executive Director of Healthpage Liberia, has told our Health Desk that the two sick Liberian kids she helped to send to the US for medical treatment are said to be positively responding to their treatments. Four-year old Prince J. Tweh and 16-year old Hawa Chuku Kolleh’s medical conditions could not be treated in Liberia.Little Prince from the impoverished slum community of West Point, fell into a pot of boiled water on September 11, 2015. According to Ms. Williams, little Prince was so seriously burnt that both his arms got stuck to his body. As for 16-year-old Hawa Chuku Kolleh from Geeghbahn District, Grand Bassa County, a 22-year- old man, only identified as Abraham, slipped under her bed at night and poured sulfuric acid on her face, which led to her face being badly disfigured. However, after they (Prince and Hawa) arrived in the US, they began seeing specialized medical doctors. According to Ms. Williams, Ms. Bennetta N. Massaquoi, the young lady, who escorted the kids to the US told her that Prince was admitted on May 8, 2016 at the Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Boston with high fever, headache and wound discharges. He was treated and discharged to his host parents on May 10, 2016. He was given a follow up appointment for a surgery on May 13.“His doctor, Dr. Sheridan did a graft replacement and the donor site was his right thigh. He successfully underwent the surgery and was discharged on May 17. He had his second surgery done on June 10. A graft replacement was performed on the left arm using his left thigh as the donor site and he was discharged on June 15,” Ms. Massaquoi reported.As for Hawa, she had her first appointment at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in Boston on May 9, where she was diagnosed of having less vision with the left eye. “She was placed on lubricant eye ointment to help clear the vision but the vision got worse. After several follow ups at the MEEI, she was diagnosed of cornea failure and successfully underwent the surgery and is now administering eye drops. Her right eye is still in good condition.”Ms. Massaquoi stated that Hawa’s next follow-up is on July 5, today with Dr. Chodos, an Ophthalmologist. She had her second appointment but first with Dr. Bojovic, a Plastic Surgeon at the Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Boston on May 18.“She was examined thoroughly and had a successful eyelid replacement surgery on May 25. Her body responded well to the replacement. This procedure was done to give her eyes better protection. “She then had a skin graft replacement on June 14. The skin was removed from her left thigh. The graft is currently in place and well secured to help the eyelids stay intact.

Many places that produce oil and gas have stopped the practice, or plan to do so, including oil-rich Russia.last_img read more

Echoes of George Best as Utd, Benfica collide

first_imgTwo years previously, it was with a bravura performance at Benfica’s Estadio da Luz that a 19-year-old George Best catapulted himself to international renown.But Benfica have also engineered some of United’s continental low moments, most notably in 2005, when the Lisbon giants condemned Alex Ferguson’s team to a humbling group-stage exit.The teams first met in early 1966 when United were embarking upon their first European Cup campaign since Matt Busby’s ‘Busby Babes’ were decimated by the 1958 Munich air disaster.After United won the first leg of their quarter-final 3-2 at Old Trafford, the teams faced off again in Lisbon and Benfica were torn apart, an early Best brace setting Busby’s side on their way to a thumping 5-1 win.Manchester United’s players take part in a training session in Moscow, on September 26, 2017, on the eve of their UEFA Champions League Group A match against CSKA Moskva © AFP/File / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVBest’s second goal, in the 13th minute, was one of his finest in a United shirt as he gathered a knock-down and surged past two defenders before drilling a low shot into the bottom-left corner.“A hurricane passed through the Luz that night and his name was George Best,” said Benfica winger Antonio Simoes.The Portuguese press dubbed Best ‘The Fifth Beatle’ and after donning a sombrero hat on his return to England, he was decribed as ‘El Beatle’ by the British media.“On nights like that, good players become great players and great players become gods,” Best later recalled.“It was surreal stuff. I’ve seen other great teams play like that, but to be a part of such an experience was unreal.”Two years later, beneath the Wembley floodlights, Best would prove to be Benfica’s tormentor again.– Rooney, Ronaldo rise again –Benfica’s players take part in a training on the eve of their UEFA Champions League Group A match against Basel, on September 26, 2017, at St. Jakob-Park stadium in Basel © AFP/File / Fabrice COFFRINIWith the score 1-1 in extra time, he ran onto Alex Stepney’s kick, rounded goalkeeper Jose Henrique and — having briefly contemplated getting down on his knees and heading the ball over the line — tucked United in front.Further goals by Brian Kidd and Bobby Charlton — his second of the match — completed an emotional victory, 10 years on from the horrors of Munich.Benfica would have to wait 37 years for a shot at revenge, but when it came, they took it, a 2-1 win in Lisbon in December 2005 dumping United out of the competition.Ferguson dismissed speculation about his future at the club, vowing: “This club has always risen from difficult situations and we will again.”United’s supporters harboured concerns about the callowness of a team in which Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo were still finding their feet, but Ferguson was true to his word.His side beat Benfica home and away in the group phase the next season en route to the semi-finals and in 2008 a side spearheaded by Rooney and Ronaldo recaptured the European Cup by beating Chelsea on penalties in Moscow.It was Benfica who came out on top when the teams last met, progressing to the knockout rounds in 2011-12 after a pair of draws against United helped to consign Ferguson’s side to another group-phase departure.Six years on, United appear to be on the up again under Jose Mourinho, who cut his managerial teeth in an ill-fated three-month stint at Benfica in 2000.Whereas United, last season’s Europa League winners, have comfortably won their opening games, Benfica have lost both of theirs and were condemned to a record 5-0 defeat by Basel on their last outing.For Mourinho, however, they remain his team’s principal adversaries in Group A.“The defeat suffered in Switzerland didn’t change my opinion that Benfica are our main opponent in the group stage,” he told Portuguese newspaper Record earlier this month.A new page waits to be written.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Benfica’s players fight for the ball with Manchester United’s footballers during an UEFA Champions League match at Old Trafford in Manchester, in 2011 © AFP/File / ANDREW YATESLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 17 – Manchester United’s Champions League encounter with Benfica on Wednesday represents a resumption of hostilities with foes who have provided a yardstick for their European standing for over half a century.Benfica, famously, were the team United defeated at Wembley in 1968 to become the first English side to win the European Cup.last_img read more

Charity benefits from pair’s anniversary

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.At last count, the 140 guests at the Sept. 22 party, which featured a 17-piece orchestra, had donated more than $7,000 to the center. And if that’s not enough, the Poseys say they’ll match whatever the total ends up being. “Foothill Unity does so much for the community,” Gunde said, “and the need is so big and growing. We try to support local charities, so we decided to pick Foothill.” How did their guests react? “They really loved it,” she said. “It’s something we can all do. We invited people to bring canned goods or donate money, and we got some food but mostly checks.” ARCADIA – What do you give a couple who have everything? In the case of Gunde and Ernie Posey, it’s a donation to their chosen charity. That charity is the Foothill Unity Center in Monrovia, and for their recent 25th wedding anniversary, the Poseys asked their guests to make donations to the center, rather than give them the traditional silver gifts. “We don’t need any more silver,” Gunde Posey said. “We have everything we need, the party was enough. We have had a wonderful life, so we decided to ask for donations.” The center serves needy families and seniors in the San Gabriel Valley, providing food, clothing, household goods, motel vouchers, transportation, work experience, school supplies and holiday meals. Last year, the nonprofit, nondenominational organization distributed more than 1 million pounds of groceries to more than 2,000 low-income families in Pasadena, Altadena, South Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte and Bradbury. Joan Whitenack, the center’s executive director, said the donations could not have come at a better time. “We had recently run out of funds to provide emergency shelter for our clients,” she said. “The majority of people who need this support are women and children. Thanks to the stunning generosity of the Poseys, their family and friends, we can continue to offer this critical assistance.” Ernie Posey owns the J.T. Posey Co. on Myrtle Avenue in Monrovia, which makes medical supplies. She met Gunde while working for a company in Denmark that sold his products. The couple have two grown children and have lived in Arcadia since 1991. emanuel.parker@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4475 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Shelter celebrates 30th anniversary

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre “I feel very good about the direction it’s gone in,” founding volunteer Barbara Gile said. A staff of 22 employees help abused women hide their location from their batterers, file restraining orders and legal paperwork and care for their children with a place to stay, food and basic supplies. The shelter is now adding programs to help community members recognize abuse and offer support to women who are battered. The shelter hosted two workshops this fall, one for hairdressers and another for school guidance counselors. Two other workshops, for obstetrics and gynecological nurses and for human resources workers, are planned in the spring. “And of course we’ll have a big party as well,” Director Judy Gordon said of plans to note the anniversary at the end of its 30th year, next fall. WHITTIER – When one Whittier resident said 30 years ago she wanted to open a shelter for battered women, one city councilman countered that there were no abused women in Whittier. To date, the shelter Stella Religa founded has helped 75,000 domestic violence victims, two-thirds of them children. Whittier’s Women’s and Children’s Crisis Shelter is celebrating its 30th year serving battered women and their families. The center has grown from a simple hot line run by a group of volunteers to a short-term shelter, long-term housing, an outreach center, a school for the children of battered women in transition and, of course, the old hot line is still in place. Stella Religa, 88, said she had the idea for a shelter in Whittier when she went to a hospital and saw a woman who had been badly beaten by her husband. The man had thrown his wife against a wall, breaking her jaw. When Religa offered help to the woman, she got no response. “She just looked at me with dead eyes,” Religa said. Religa began to act, organizing meetings, finding funding and setting up a hot line, as well as seeking the professional advice of social workers and doctors. Religa, a secretary, and Gile, a human resources manager, along with other volunteers, first placed battered women in the homes of workers during emergencies. Later, they were able to buy a house where women could stay for 30 days. They established a school for children of victims and collected donations around the community. Shelter’s Right Hand, a charity group which dedicated its proceeds to the center, was founded in 1983, to provide money from a thrift store and annual 5K Walk. Last year, more than 1,000 were helped with the hot line, while more than 600 were sheltered. Although she is glad the resource is available, Religa said she is saddened by the continuing need. “We thought we would be out of the business of helping women in five years,” Religa said. “It was very naive on our part.” But according to Gordon, the shelter is able to make a difference. New clients represent new demographics, she said, including abuse victims from same-sex couples, battered men and undocumented immigrants who are unaware of rights and resources. For Gordon, the reward in her work is seeing clients begin to lead normal lives. She said she remembered one woman who came to the center with a young son because she did not speak English and had few resources. After going through the program, the client began the process of getting her visa and is attending school. Her son is now 3 years old. “She will never go back to her batterer,” Gordon said. “She will never go back to any batterer.” Women victimized by domestic violence can call the crisis shelter’s hot line at (562) 945-3939. airan.scruby@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Even with a sever haircut, Giroud pulls it out of the bag with a strong beard. Although he can be tricky in possession for a keeper, the Brazil No.1 opts for a far more simpler approach to his grooming. After a season of Loris Karius and his ponytail, Reds fans everywhere will welcome a keeper with a much more sensible haircut. The Welsh wizard is currently stalling on a new deal at the Emirates, giving him plenty of time to work on his beard.

Duarte-Gabrielino game canceled due to gunfire

first_imgLast Friday’s nonleague football game between host Duarte High School and Gabrielino High was canceled at the request of Gabrielino school officials, Duarte Principal Bill Martinez said. Following the conclusion of Thursday’s freshman football game between the two schools at Duarte, shots were heard nearby, prompting Gabrielino officials to ask that Friday’s varsity game be canceled. Gabrielino officials couldn’t be reached for comment. The game will not be rescheduled. No injuries were reported, the incident happened off campus and no students were believed to be involved, Duarte officials said. Martinez said Duarte administrators couldn’t persuade Gabrielino officials to play the game. Maranatha, which has allowed only 12 points in three games, is 3-0 under new coach Dwayne Cantrell following Saturday’s 20-0 shutout over Flintridge Prep. Even though the Kares advanced to last year’s championship game, coach Ken Drain said before the season he would be grateful if they just reached the playoffs in 2005. The Kares lost all-purpose player Landon Goodwell, quarterback Dan Pastor and a few others to graduation, but they’ve picked up where they left off, are 2-0 and ranked No. 4 after Friday’s 42-0 victory over Western Christian. “The start has kind of been surprising to all of us,’ Drain said. “It’s a combination of some of our opponents not being that good and the fact we’re better than we thought we would be.’ Drain also has been scoreboard watching. No. 1 Hamilton is 1-2 after a 14-6 loss to No. 2 Campbell Hall, and Campbell Hall barely beat Pasadena Poly 27-13 earlier this season. “You can’t count us out of the division now,’ Drain said. “I really believe it’s up for grabs.’ Drain’s optimistic because the Kares’ defense has allowed only six points in two games. The Kares host Arrowhead Christian on Saturday at 7 p.m. “I thought our defense would be our weakness, but the guys are swarming to the ball and surprising us each week,’ Drain said. Fred J.

We even offered to play at Gabrielino and would have brought our administration and had deputies at the game there. But unfortunately, we couldn’t come to an agreement.’ Could there possibly be a CIF- SS Division XIII championship between Rio Hondo Prep (2-0) and Maranatha (3-0)?
