Pallone Wants To Return To DC; Still Has Work To Do

first_imgGiven that position, even as a member of the minority party, Pallone said “To me it’s all new in a sense.” With his seniority and working with his fellow committee members – both Democrats and Republicans – he believes “I’ve been able to accomplish more than I’ve ever been able to.”The congressman ticked off a series of legislation that had cleared the committee, some of which are on their way to the Oval Office or at least onto the House floor for further consideration.He pointed to the recently approved bill package addressing the national opiate epidemic, the president is expected to sign into law. A group of bills providing additional access to mental health treatment and services has recently cleared his committee.A big step forward was the recent House-approved revamped Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), offering tighter toxic chemical regulation. “It’s been 14 years we’ve been trying to get that done,” he said.These examples of work done goes to another point Pallone made about the House of Representatives. The public perception that partisan gridlock has gotten so severe that nothing is getting accomplished in the Halls of Congress. “That’s just not true,” he insisted.“I constantly try to debunk that,” maintaining that with the legislative branch controlled by one party and the executive branch by the other, compromise and cooperation is governmental life’s blood, approaching that middle ground for some matters. “To be honest there is a political side to this as well,” he acknowledged, suspecting it is in the Republican leadership’s advantage to work with the loyal opposition, given the criticism congressional Republicans have gotten for being obstructionist.Pallone said he had worked very hard, working with Republican Gov. Chris Christie in the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy to secure federal emergency funding over the opposition of some western and southern Republican lawmakers. But Pallone acknowledged, regrettably, there are still too many still recovering. “I’ve been very critical of both the state and federal bureaucracy,” and said now “It has to be addressed on a one-to-one basis,” relying on strong constituent ser vices from his office to help the victims.He’s been working on obtaining additional federal funds for Super Fund and brown field contaminated sites, which he believes will be of a particular benefit to New Jersey areas. That legislation, however, isn’t likely to advance this term and will need to be taken up again next January – should he continue to hold his seat.Looking back over his career, he takes pride on two accomplishments. Long very active on the environmental front, Pallone points to his work on ending the practice of ocean trash dumping. When he first took office there were about 12 permitted sites off of Jersey Shore, all of which have been closed.The other is his work on drafting and campaigning for the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare. Pallone was a major architect on that defining – and highly controversial – law.“The goal was really to try to get as close as possible toward universal coverage” for health care for Americans, he said. It may not have reached that level, but it has had a profound effect for so many citizens, he stressed, and actually components are exceedingly popular for Americans – allowing children to remain on parents’ plans until they’re 26; prohibiting insurance providers to deny on the basis of preexisting conditions; expanding Medicaid coverage for many more citizens; the federal subsidies for those below an income threshold. “No question it has become part of the fabric of the health care system,” he said.“I have to say I still enjoy it,” he said, hoping to win reelection because, “I do think I can still make a difference.” By John BurtonAFTER NEARLY THREE decades in the U.S. House of Representatives, Frank Pallone still feels the passion that first inspired him to run.“I guess I just still feel that government can make a difference,” said Pallone, a Democrat, as he seeks reelection for the 6th Congressional District, which represents much of Monmouth County and portions of Middlesex. “And I like to think I’m an important part of that.“If I didn’t feel the passion I wouldn’t continue to do it,” he said. Besides, he added, “There’s a lot to do.”Pallone, 64, a Long Branch native, has served in the House since 1988, replacing long-serving Democrat James Howard who died in March of that year.In his most recent two-year term in Washington, Pallone became the senior ranking Democratic member of the House’s Energy and Commerce Committee, an influential committee that addresses among other things, health, environmental and energy issues – all areas of passion for Pallone during his legislative tenure.last_img read more

Captain Peni Ravai’s boys displayed quality rugby to demolish the Samoans. Fiji Warriors led 16-0 at halftime.The first 40 minutes was a close exchange with livewire halfback Henry Seniloli setting the pace with quick deliveries. Fiji was ferocious in defence but there were about five knock-ons.

Kudos for Sanya Richards-Ross, writes Laurie Foster

first_imgFoster’s Fairplay is fiercely protective of Jamaica’s world-standard track and field talent. When it seeks exposure under a foreign flag, there is frustration, coupled with anger. This columnist was at the 1999 Seville World Championships. Talking to Jamaica’s team boss, Winston Ulett, mention was made of a 13-year-old Sanya Richards, who was ‘kicking up rumpus’ on the US circuit. She was doing some sprint times that boggled the mind. The response was, “No big thing, Americans are noted for that”. The later-to-be-disgraced, self-confessed drug user, Marion Jones’ feats as a 15-year-old, sprung to mind. Ulett said a whole lot more. He is, in his own right, a man of high track and field pedigree. Kingston College groundings speak to no less. Also, he is the spouse of a highly celebrated educator, who boasts bloodlines to match. He added the real stunner. He mentioned that he had lost the battle to keep little Sanya at Vaz Preparatory in the country of her birth. It was like a body blow. Exit another prized asset. During the 2002 Kingston-staged International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Junior Championships, this columnist, doing radio commentary, displayed unprofessional bias. The sentiment was for a Jamaican to get the better of a then 17-year-old Miss Richards (USA) – tagged ‘the deserter’ – in every event in which she participated. There was utter disappointment in the 400m, accompanying Sheryl Morgan’s third-place behind SR. It was transformed the following day, to openly expressed joy, when Anneisha McLaughlin sped to 200m silver ahead of SR. At the pre-competition press conference, disgust was made known, as choice of country to represent was raised. The label of ‘traitor’ on this journalist could have stuck. This as work environment at the nation’s gateway, albeit over 20 years hitherto, was happily shared with Sanya’s Auntie Claire and mom, Sharon, national airlines employees, and two sisters (any interpretation will do) of inner, but not concealed, beauty. It is now 13 years after Kingston, 2002. Unreserved apologies are extended. Foster’s Fairplay commends Mrs Sanya Richards-Ross for her unswerving support of her prep school, where the talent was first spotted. It remains the platform from which an outstanding career had been launched. sheer brilliance What does it matter that it has been to the everlasting benefit of an adopted country? Sheer brilliance on the world scene, despite a plethora of setbacks, which must have unsettled, serves to show that she is made of stern stuff. Triumphs over adversity have enhanced an image which shows inner strength. She has overcome challenges that athletes face on the path to realising their dreams. Beverly Boggis-Ulett (a former schoolmate of this columnist) and her staff at Dunoon Road-located Vaz Preparatory School, can stand tall and proud. The institution of primary education sits on a solid base of, arguably, the best learning curve that the country can boast. The school is an offshoot of the equally prestigious Morris-Knibb Prep, with Mavisville also part of the august family. It was constructed on land on which previously stood the house where the world cricketing icon, George Headley, lived. Like the Master, it has done Jamaica real proud. Named after a former senior female teacher at Morris-Knibb, Hazel Vaz, it has gifted Jamaica and the world with an outstanding individual in Sanya Richards-Ross. Her dad, Archie, whom I met for the first time at the World Relays in Nassau last May, is Fortis-branded. It is difficult to comprehend how he managed to escape the gaze of this eagle-eyed journalist, a most ardent follower of Bishop Gibson’s institution of learning, despite being herded with rich kids several miles adrift. If ever Foster’s Fairplay, so vigorously at the time, in opposition to Sanya’s move to compete for the USA, is asked why the change of heart? Her words at a function, recalling her early schooling, give the full story, giving back. “It was always one of my greatest pleasures to go back to my alma mater and speak to the kids. Vaz Prep gave me such a great foundation, and they are still instilling the most important values to our youth. Keep reaching for the stars. The sky is the limit.” Gwaan, Sanya, is you large.

Heath advocates NCD training workshop commences

first_imgThe Contact Study Project, Congregations Taking Action Against NCDs, commenced the first of two 4-day workshop targeting health advocates in religious institutions in Region Three and equipping them with the relevant knowledge to address the scourge of Non-Communicable Diseases within their respective communities.Contact Study Project, Congregations Taking Action Against NCDs headed by UK based Guyanese, Professor Seeromanie Harding of the King’s College London is the organiser of the workshop. The Public Health Ministry is funding the four-day workshop, at the Regency Hotel training 18 religious health advocates to address NCDs.Public Health Minister Volda LawrenceProfessor Harding speaking at the launching of the workshop on Monday said that there has been a rise in the prevalence of Non-Communicable Diseases, which presents a major challenge for the developing and under developed nations. She noted that the aim is to change the system so that it could reach the masses and noted that Guyana is the ideal place for that change.The professor further stated that they are training the health advocates so that they can go out and empower their communities through their religious institutions.“What we are doing here is quite unique and novel, and Guyana is quite facilitating. What we are trying to do is to change a system and empower communities to make sure that the changes are transparent, they are accountable, they are in line with the values and beliefs of the communities. We have a very strong sense of religion and we are delighted to have their participation,” she said.Meanwhile, country representative of the Pan American Health Organisation/World Health Organisation, Dr William Adu-Krow, noted that Guyana have a problem when it comes to NCDs. He noted that there an average of 4,000 deaths per year, in Guyana, due to NCDs with 28 percent counting as premature deaths.A section of the Health Advocates at the opening of the 4 day workshopAdditionally, Dr Adu-Krow stated that despite vast availability of exercise spaces and fresh fruits and vegetables Guyanese often discards that hence contributing to high blood pressure, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases in most cases.Public Health Minister, Volda Lawrence told participants that the workshop is timely since it was just last month that President David Granger charged the Presidential Commission on NCDs to work more aggressively to address the rise.“It is regrettable to mention this, but I am convinced that our residents in our communities, in fact a significant percentage of our general population is not fully cognizant of the threat to life that non-communicable diseases embody. Their behaviour and lifestyles seem to indicate, despite the startling data, that they have not fully grasped the risks and the extent to which they are exposed with respect to NCDs,” she noted.“The intervention of the religious institutions, I am convinced, can help us to reach our targeted vulnerable citizens, our youths, and bridge the information gaps helping us to impact on the life span of our nation and to shape a healthy and productive population that will provide the cornerstone for the fulfillment of the Millennium and the Sustainable Development Goals,” Lawrence added.Additionally, Junior Public Health Minister, Dr Karen Cummings noted that NCDs significantly affect large sections of society and presents a huge cost and burden on the health care system.“A key element in the fight against NCDs is the establishment of health literacy within the population through robust health promotion. Persons need to know what they can do to control and possibly prevent the emergence and prevalence of NCDs through simple lifestyle changes,” she noted.She added that the training of health advocates is opportune as “it will most certainly equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills they need so that they can go into their respective communities and commence meaningful promotions as it relates to NCDs.”The minister also urged the health advocates to ensure that they use their training for the betterment of their communities and understand the roles they now play.last_img read more

Amokachi confident Morocco will land 2026 WC rights

first_imgThe Moroccans have been globetrotting trying to lobby votes from the 211 FIFA members as they aim to bring the World Cup to Africa.“Why did we have to wait for over 100 years before Africa hosted the World Cup? Why should we wait for another 100 years when there is an opportunity in 2026? Africa is a friendly continent with beautiful culture and tradition and we should have the whole world coming here,” former Nigerian international Daniel Amokachi, one of the Morocco 2026 bid ambassadors told Capital Sport.Former Nigerian international Daniel Amokachi speaks to Capital Sport during his visit to teh FKF Headquarters at Goal Project on April 18, 2018. Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUAmokachi was in Nairobi to present the Morocco 2026 bid document to Football Kenya Federation boss Nick Mwendwa in a campaign to sway more support to garner the necessary 150 minimum votes that will hand the North African country the hosting rights for the 48-team tournament.Amokachi who has played in three World Cups with Nigeria as well as winning the gold medal with the team at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta believes Morocco stands a decent chance to win the rights, despite the money-lauded Americas standing in their way.“It’s looking very good; no doubt that when it comes to vote against the Americas, 100 percent Africa will get the bid if it would be fair. If the integrity that took Sepp Blatter out of office is played right, I don’t see otherwise. We will get it,” Amokachi further stated speaking to Capital Sport on the sidelines of his meeting with FKF.“When Morocco bids, wit is the continent of Africa that bids and we hope that the continent will back us,” Amokachi further added.Former Nigerian international Daniel Amokachi left) when he paid a courtesy call to FKF president Nick Mwendwa right) at the FKF Headquarters at Goal Project on April 18, 2018. Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULUMorocco is trying its luck to host the World Cup bidding for the fifth time. In terms of experience, CONCACAF’s three reps have amassed it all. Mexico has hosted two World Cups, one Confederations Cup, one Under-17 World Cup and one Youth Championship.The USA has hosted the Women’s World Cup twice and one men’s World Cup. Canada has hosted the Under-16 and Under-20 men’s World Cups, Under 19 and Under-20 Women’s World Cup and the 2015 Women’s World Cup.This is the sixth stop for Amokachi who was accompanied by two representatives from the Morocco bidding committee. They have already been to Zimbabwe, Zambia, South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland.Mwendwa has already plainly said Kenya will vote for Morocco in the congress in Moscow especially having benefited from the North Africans’ generosity over time.Former Nigerian international Daniel Amokachi when he paid a courtesy call to FKF president Nick Mwendwa at the FKF Headquarters at Goal Project on April 18, 2018.

In 2016, Harambee Starlets had a 14 day training camp in Morocco as they prepared for the African Women’s Cup of Nations.“If one of us in Africa is bidding, then we have to look home first. The commitment I see is what makes me want to support them. I have spoken to them a couple of times and I am convinced they will do this. The US has not spoken to Kenya. I have never met someone from the US telling us why we should support them,” Mwendwa noted.Amokachi believes that Morocco presents the best and most comfortable host for the World Cup especially noting that this will be the second expanded World Cup with 48 teams after the tournament in Qatar in 2022.He says the country’s centrality as well as accessibility is vital to ensure that all participating teams are comfortable.“Morocco is like only 14km from Europe and also, the distance between the furthest venues is about 54okm which is a 35 minute flight. You don’t want teams and fans fighting fatigue and jet lag while playing. The government has also set up facilities and others are being put up to ensure we have the best World Cup,” Amokachi noted.He added; “We had one of the best if not the best World Cup in South Africa in 2010. Why not experience that all over again?” posed the ex-Super Eagles man nicknamed ‘The Bull’ in his heydeys donning the green and white of Nigeria.Former Nigerian international Daniel Amokachie (top left) when he paid a courtesy call to FKF president Nick Mwendwa (top right) at teh FKF Headquarters at Goal Project on April 18, 2018.

We are also looking at convincing the other confederations and hopefully we get the required number to have this come to the continent,” Amokachi noted.With Kenya planning to fight for a slot in the expanded World Cup, Mwendwa also believes having it in Africa would be a beautiful debut.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Former Nigerian international Daniel Amokachi left) presents the Morocco 2026 World Cup bid book to FKF president Nick Mwendwa right) at the FKF Headquarters at Goal Project on April 18, 2018.

FA chief ‘sad and angered’ over Eva Carneiro’s Chelsea departure

first_img1 Football Association board member Heather Rabbatts has expressed her “sadness and anger” at the departure of Eva Carneiro as Chelsea’s club doctor.Carneiro is understood to have parted company with the Blues in the wake of an apparent row with manager Jose Mourinho, who criticised the doctor and her medical staff following the 2-2 draw with Swansea on the opening day of the season.Latest reports claim Gibraltar-born  Carneiro is considering legal action likely and could sue the club for constructive dismissal.Rabbatts said Carneiro had been subjected to verbal abuse and criticism after she went on to the pitch to treat Eden Hazard, which meant Chelsea were temporarily reduced to nine men against Swansea as the Belgian star had to leave the field.Head physiotherapist Jon Fearn did likewise and Mourinho said at the time: “I was unhappy with my medical staff. They were impulsive and naive.“Whether you are a kit man, doctor or secretary on the bench you have to understand the game.”In reaction to the news on Tuesday, Rabbatts – chair of the FA’s inclusion advisory board – said: “News of Dr Eva Carneiro’s departure from Chelsea FC makes me feel sadness and anger.“Eva was one of the few very senior women in the game, a highly respected doctor who has acted with professional integrity in difficult circumstances and whose skills have been highly praised by her colleagues, the club and governing bodies.”Carneiro has not been at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground since she was removed from first-team duties shortly after the Swansea game.Rabbatts said she had been effectively demoted for doing her job properly.A Chelsea spokesman on Tuesday said he could not comment on internal staffing matters.
