Tanzania base

first_imgYour name sends a chillYour face sends a silent cold, traveling through spines, like needlesHidden under the enclaves of CARI,Deep in the bosom of Bong!When men, like chicks, ran to your arms for shelterYou opened a door, hid them under your feathersFrom the gnashing sounds of gunshots and stray bulletsBringing a relief, life was about to breathe again!In the darkest of dark,You pushed them out to the wolvesShut your hutsTook off your doorsDemolished your windowsUnmasked your faceAnd, like a coward, you fledOh Tanzania base! Why?You could have left us alone!Let the lions devour us then!Or, we would have buried ourselves alive!But you gave us hope, masked by terror!And left us out to dryWish your name could vanish like a dreamOh Tanzania base, you are a beast!Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Villaraigosa gets control of 7 schools

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champThe schools that will join the partnership are Jordan, Roosevelt and Santee Highs, and four middle schools – Hollenbeck, Stevenson, Markham and Gompers. About 86 percent of 1,800 parents and 69percent of 797 teachers voted to support the mayor’s plan. “Today we’re unleashing the power of L.A. to transform the schools in L.A.” Superintendent David Brewer III said. Out of nearly 800 teacher votes, 250 opposed the plan, and United Teachers Los Angeles President A.J. Duffy said the union will work diligently to reassign those who do not want to work in a partnership school. “We will work out a fair and equitable process for any of these teachers who want to transfer to another school, so that this is not a punishment,” he said. Los Angeles Unified officials said a second round of voting will take place in the spring to include elementary schools in the mayor’s “family” of schools. The voting results were widely seen as a gain for Villaraigosa, even though it fell far short of his original goal to oversee all Los Angeles Unified schools. “It’s a victory for the mayor and now he’s going to have to show something,” said Jaime Regalado, director of the Edmund G. “Pat” Brown Institute of Public Affairs at California State University, Los Angeles. “But will there be measurable improvements at his schools in the coming year or two?” naush.boghossian@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Marking a major political coup, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa won his bid to manage seven Los Angeles Unified schools as a majority of parents and teachers voted to partner on education reform, according to results released Wednesday. The hard-won victory culminated several failed attempts by the mayor over the past two years to assume a role in the district and capped an aggressive weekslong campaign to win support for his plan. Villaraigosa’s nonprofit Partnership for Los Angeles Schools will begin managing the schools in the 2008-09 school year, promising campuses greater resources and control over budget and curriculum. “Today, we can truly say that the votes are in and the status quo is out,” he said. “Close to 90 percent of the parents of these communities said yes to lower dropout rates, yes to higher student achievement and yes to safer campuses.” last_img read more

And her loss is not isolated to me.“Our sons George and Jonathon. Can you imagine the pain of their loss – never being able to speak to their mum again,” he said.Simone DugganCoroner John Canon said Mrs O’Donnell had not deserved to be in an accident as she had taken all the relevant precautions including not drinking, driving below the speed limit and wearing her seat belt.He found in accordance with the jury that Mrs O’Donnell had died as a result of injuries sustained in a road traffic collision.FAMILY OF TRAGIC TEACHER ASK CORONER NOT TO RECORD DEATH AS ‘ACCIDENT’ was last modified: September 13th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Damian McGeehanFanadfatal car crashinquestJohn O’DonnellKERRYKEELletterkennySimone Dugganteacher Marie O’Donnelllast_img read more

GAA: YOUR COUNTY NEEDS YOU!

first_imgYour County Needs You! By donegaldaily.com analyst and fan blogger Cathal Mac Suibhne.“Through respecting the past we hope to develop the future” – Jim McGuinnessThe wonderful days experienced last Summer in Clones and Croke Park brought the feel-good factor back to Donegal GAA – now fans have a chance to play their part in helping those days to come about more often. The County Board are currently engaged in a fundraising drive to support Donegal GAA’s Centre of Excellence at Convoy and are urging supporters to dip into their pockets and assist in the effort.A financing sub-committee has been established, led by treasurer Grainne Boyle, to try to raise €100,000 by the end of May and this is to be done by enticing 200 donors to give €500 each to the cause. As a Revenue approved scheme anyone making a donation can receive a tax break (full details attached below).The Centre will play a key part in the future for Donegal football and hurling and will mean that all training facilities for all teams will be at one location rather the current situation which requires players to move around to various locations in the county.The facility at Convoy will comprise of five pitches, four grass-based and one 3G surface, as well as an indoor training facility. Three of the five pitches will be floodlit while there will also be medical rooms, dining area and dressing rooms with lockers for each player as well as ample parking on the site. Preparation in Gaelic Games has reached unprecedented levels in the past decade and other counties have already identified a centralised training facility as a vital element in getting the best out of their teams.Other counties such as Monaghan (Cloghan), Tyrone (Garvaghey) and Derry (Owenbeg) are already reaping the benefits from their respective training centres with positive reports received from players, managers and administrators alike.The fundraising drive for the project was launched in the Mount Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny last month and there has been an encouraging response thus far.Similar fundraising initiatives were successful in the counties mentioned above and with the help of GAA supporters in the county and the wider diaspora in Ireland and abroad, Convoy can welcome Donegal’s teams as they begin their 2013 Championship campaigns.County boss McGuinness is excited about the plans and is in no doubt as to the centre’s importance in developing GAA in Donegal, “we now operate to a philosophy that is player and coach centred, development driven and competition supported which will be expressed across a range of disciplines under one roof at the new centre. This will be an aspirational environment within which every young player will know they are being given the opportunity to achieve something special with their lives. Nothing is now left to chance and the systems, structures and people we have in place will deliver huge benefits for the future of Donegal GAA….I am certain every player who enters those doors will walk out inspired to give their best for Donegal.” So how do you get involved?An application form and details on the scheme (including how you can claim a tax refund from your donation) can be found below…If you require more information, you can contact Donegal County Treasurer, Grainne Boyle…Phone: 086-8032954Email: treasurer.donegal@gaa.ieClick here for tax refund form: Application_FormGAA: YOUR COUNTY NEEDS YOU! was last modified: May 11th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:GAA: YOUR COUNTY NEEDS YOU!last_img read more
