The Manchester police recorded its first incident today after a man clad in green stabbed another in the cheek, after a feud developed in Huntley in the constituency of North East Manchester. According to police, the feud allegedly developed after the two met in a minor vehicular accident. The police do not believe it was politically motivated. With no charges yet laid against the accused, the police are awaiting a report from the victim, who had to seek medical attention at the hospital, to ascertain the true cause of the incident.
FoT members stand agape for their blessings during the Thanksgiving Service.— Distributes assorted food items to elders On Sunday, November 17, 2019, the pastors and members of Mount Olivet Bible Church, located in Paynesville, outside Monrovia, offered a special prayer to God for members of the “Friends of Tabou” (FoT), an association of over 50 Liberians, who once lived in Tabou, La Cote d’Ivoire as refugees during the height of Liberia’s civil crisis (1989-2003).The prayer session, which was part of FoT’s Thanksgiving ceremony, also sought divine direction for all the leaders, members and the continued prosperity of the association.The prayers were part of activities marking the FoT’s annual thanksgiving service, to thank God for what he has done in the past years, and commit the association and all its members to God.The event was characterized by the donation of several bags of 25kg rice, and cans of vegetable oil to the congregation, particularly to benefit the elderly.Prominent Pastors from different denominations led the prayer session, which featured special prayers for the FoT functionaries, while specific prayers and declarations were made for its members.This year’s event, which has as its theme, “Don’t Allow Intimidation to Stop you from Doing God’s Work,” was taken from the Book of Nehemiah 6:1-14.In that sermon, Pastor James W. Badio, who served as a guest preacher, underscored the importance of doing God’s work in truth and in spirit.”Badio then encouraged FoT members, particularly those that were in attendance, to support the work of God, “no matter the circumstances.”President of FoT, Jarlawah Tonpo, expressed gratitude to the Church for its ‘longstanding’ support to individual members of the association.Tonpo said the Church had a profound impact on the existence of the association, “where one of our members, Erasmus Kweejay, is now a pastor of this church, and so we are again grateful to be here and give God the glory.”He said the donated items will help the Church, specifically, the department of the elderly.Bishop G. Benedict Gboffua, Sr., who offered a special prayer for FoT members, described the association’s good gesture as a timely intervention that will go a long way in determining how its members would remain united, “because we as a church, were never expecting this donation, but thank God it came as a blessing.”“I urge us all to pray for FoT. Let us seek the face of God to grant our members the needed blessings, so as to continue excelling and experience continuity of development and good leadership,” Bishop Gbouffa said.Since the establishment of the FoT, its members have individually or collectively, touched the lives of many vulnerable Liberians, including orphans.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) read more

Photospin.com/ Toh Kheng HoBlog by Joanna ManeroTreating a client undergoing cancer treatment can be a difficult task. Many things are happening in their lives, which may lead to nutrition being put on the back burner. However, we know how important proper nutrition can be during this time. According to the American Cancer Society, proper nutrition during treatment can lead to feeling better, keeping up strength and energy, maintaining weight and body nutrient stores, better-tolerating side effects, lower risk of infection, and a faster recovery.Cancer treatments may result in an altered sense of smell, taste, and appetite, which may lead to malnutrition. These changes are especially problematic in this population as it may leave patients too weak to fight disease. Furthermore, other side effects of cancer treatment include anorexia, anxiety, constipation, depression, dry mouth, diarrhea, mouth sores, nausea, and trouble swallowing. These side effects can further inhibit someone’s willingness to eat. If you find that your client is struggling to consume adequate energy and nutrients during cancer treatments, try some of the tips below.If the problem is appetite:Eat five or six small meals per day.Eat large meals when you are hungry.Start a meal with high-protein foods.Keep your favorite high-energy foods and drinks nearby at all times.Try to be physically active to help stimulate hunger.Ask a family member for help with meal preparation.Drink your calories using smoothies and semi-solid foods that require less chewing.If the problem is nausea:Avoid strong smelling foods.Eat small, frequent meals.Eat sitting up.Having small sips of clear, room-temperature fluid, may be better tolerated.Sip on drinks between meals rather than with a meal.Avoid foods that are heavily spiced, greasy, or overly sweet.Nibble on plain foods such as pretzels and crackers to help control vomiting.If the problem is fatigue:Ask for a family member to help prepare meals.Prepare large meals when you have energy and freeze leftovers.Stay hydrated.Temporarily consume ready-to-eat meals.Look into programs that can provide meals such as Meals on Wheels.If the problem is altered taste and smell:Choose foods that you enjoy.Consume foods at lower temperatures; often lower temperature can help mask the smell and taste of foods.If food tastes bitter or salty, try adding small amounts of sugar.Brush your teeth and rinse your mouth regularly.Try marinades or spices that taste and smell good to you to mask the off-taste of other foods.As you can imagine, this is only a short list of problems that can arise during cancer treatment.

People can have differing views on business ideas. There are some that see everything as an expense. These people are enamored with ideas like cost-based accounting, looking at every item to determine what was spent, including things like meetings. Others, however tend to view things as investments, a view that looks at the return in addition to what was spent.So how do you value something like a weekly pipeline meeting. I used this calculator to discover that 8 people in a 30-minute meeting at a base pay rate of $40,000 costs $14.00 per person. What do you get for $14.00?Accountability: If you have a weekly pipeline meeting and require people to report their results in creating new opportunities and moving existing opportunities forward, the investment in this meeting is priceless. What would you pay for accountability, and what costs would it make sense to eliminate this meeting if accountability was in some way diminished?Ideas and Insights: If your weekly opportunity review meeting resulted in your team sharing ideas and insights around what is working, their strategy for winning deals, and how they are handling certain challenges, all of which were adopted by their peers and applied to their deals, what would you be willing to pay for that meeting? If a single shared opportunity resulted in an additional win at your average deal size with an average profit margin, was the meeting worthwhile.Culture: Meetings are an opportunity share purpose and meaning and values. They’re a chance to tell stories and share tribal knowledge. Meetings can also give a sense of belonging, something all human beings need, and one of the things known to create greater engagement. The value of a positive, optimistic, future-oriented, and empowered culture may be close to priceless, and meetings provide a place for values to be shared.Solving Problems: There are two kinds of problems in business. The first category of problems require a decision to be resolved. Oftentimes, that decision is made in a meeting. The second category of problems are systemic challenges that are only resolved with time, energy and real change. These too are solved in meetings, and with a lot of conversation, conversation that may not happen otherwise. The value of solving these difficult, systemic challenges produce returns far in excess of the cost of a meeting.Meetings get a bad rap. No doubt there are bad meetings, unproductive meetings, boring meetings, and meetings for the sake of having a meeting. But there more that are useful. Meetings are still how things get done, and their benefits largely outweigh their costs. Essential Reading!
