Tweetcenter_img Share Share Hon. Rayburn Blackmoore. (file photo)Energy Minister Rayburn Blackmoore is describing as historic, a ground breaking ceremony in Laudat, to mark the start of a geothermal energy project for Dominica later today.Government is of the view that the development of Dominica’s geothermal energy will give the island a more reliable and affordable source of energy thereby reducing its dependency on crude oil from other countries.The long-term plan is to build a one hundred and twenty megawatt power plant which will have the capacity to provide energy to neighbouring countries of Guadeloupe and Martinique.Blackmoore who was speaking ahead of today’s ground breaking ceremony said that Dominica has the potential for exploration of geothermal energy.“What is going to take place is something historic for us in Dominica. You may recall that in April government signed a contract with the government of Iceland for the drilling of three test wells and we know that we have the potential in geothermal and if we get it right, this is the greatest legacy that we can leave for the people of Dominica,” he explained.According to Mr Blackmoore, Dominica has also placed emphasis on the country’s local demand and will construct a power plant to supply this demand.“What this means is that once we are able to reduce energy cost and electric power, individual households will be at ease, it will also encourage business investment and add a new contributor to the national gross product,” he said.The official ground breaking ceremony is carded for 3:30 p.m at Laudat.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

  • UEFA Consider Shake Up

    first_imgThe Champions League may feature fewer teams in the group stages under proposals being considered by Uefa.One suggestion is for more knockout rounds, leading to two ‘super-league’ groups of eight teams – the current format features eight groups of four.A spokesman told the Guardian Uefa was in “constant contact” with clubs but “no concrete proposals” were in place.The current structure is unlikely to change under the present TV rights deal, which runs to the end of 2017-18.The Champions League replaced the European Cup, which was a straight knockout competition, in 1992.There are currently three qualifying rounds and a play-off round, all played over two legs, then the group stage which features 32 teams divided into eight groups, with the top two in each group advancing to the knockout round of 16. The European Clubs’ Association, led by former West Germany international striker Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, has held discussions regarding a tournament consisting of 20 teams from Italy, England, Spain, Germany and France.Inter Milan chief executive Michael Bolingbroke told the BBC this week that he saw merit in the idea of Champions League wildcards for teams that have not qualified through their league position. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.

  • 5 Southeastern Counties’ Road Works Underway

    first_imgThe Bridge Rural Communities for Trade (BRCT) has announced a US$500,000 phase one road project to connect five southeastern counties.The counties are Grand Gedeh, Sinoe, River Gee, Grand Kru and Maryland. BRCT is a non-profit organization with both local and international support.The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and President of BRCT, Mr. Gbenimah B. Slopadoe, told journalists in Sinkor that BRCT would deal with the “very difficult and impassible” road conditions of the southeast that are the causes of the shortage of basic commodities and social services that occur in the region from May thru November each year.As a result of difficult road conditions in that part of the country, a gallon of gasoline which was previously sold at L$350 is now sold at L$1,000, and commercial drivers, due to the high cost of gasoline, have resolved not to travel to the southeast. Additionally, a 25kg bag of rice which was sold at L$1,900 is now L$3,500. “This situation is getting serious and harmful for those who cannot afford to get the capital to purchase food items, especially the nation’s staple food, rice,” a resident said.Reports also said business owners in Maryland County are compelled to go to neighboring Cote d’Ivoire via canoes and risk their lives to purchase goods.Some residents of southeastern Liberia have vowed not to participate in the country’s October electoral process as a result of the continuous suffering they are going through due to the bad condition of roads in their various localities.It has been gathered that many of those who spoke on the issue said they would mobilize other citizens in that part of the country not to be part of the October presidential and legislative elections because of lack of attention to their plight by the government.According to BRCT, the project to connect five southeastern counties and deal with the “very difficult and impassible” road conditions of the southeast will repair and maintain laterite roads, build bridges and insert culverts to connect the southeastern counties with the rest of the country.Mr. Slopadoe is the former District # 2 Representative of Grand Kru County and is a non-aspirant in the October elections.“The impassable sections of the roads are caused by mud, a man-made problem, and therefore it can be prevented.“I am pleased to launch the Bridge Rural Communities for Trade in the Global Community as a strategic platform and champion the cause to pave Liberia’s inter-county highways to enhance mobility and improve the living conditions of the citizens including transportation, trade, income, health and education,” Mr. Slopadoe said.He said Phase One is a two-year short term activity, and that a multilateral taskforce would be established to lead a private and public endeavor to prevent Liberia’s inter-county roads from becoming impassable during the raining season. The phase is carried out under the slogan, “Keep Liberia’s Inter-county Roads Open during the Rainy Season 2017 to 2018.”“Phase 2 is a ten-year long term activity dubbed ‘Pave Liberia’s Inter-County Roads,” he said.He indicated that the multilateral taskforce would comprise local government, government institutions, corporate entities, donor partners and the fundraiser (BRCT). The taskforce will be responsible to mobilize, manage and execute resources required in the short and long term implementation of the project.“The Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE) will receive the funds and logistics and implement the projects, and the General Auditing Commission (GAC) will provide fiscal and administrative guidance,” he noted.Mr. Slopadoe served as a member of the 52nd Legislature and was the chairman on the House Committee on Labor. He sponsored two bills including one that required all government construction contracts valued up to one million United States dollars be awarded exclusively to Liberian owned construction companies (with at least 51percent of shares owned by Liberians) and capital incentives for farmers intended to revitalize the country’s agricultural sector as an investment to reduce food insecurity, create employment and income.Neither of his bills was passed into law. He recently served as a consultant with the House of Representative on a Legislative Project.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • ‘COME OUT AND SUPPORT THE GIRLS’ SAYS LADIES FOOTBALL MANAGER DAVY

    first_imgGeraldine: Missing from the action this weekendARMAGH will be slight favourites against Donegal’s Ladies on Sunday – but the roar of some extra Donegal fans might just swing things our way.With the Minors and Senior Men playing at Clones earlier in the day, a quick jaunt up the road to Lisnaskea will hopefully entice football fans to go and support the Senior Ladies in their Ulster Championship semi-final clash with the Orchard County (throw-in at 5pm).“Both sides will be in Division 2 of the league next year,” says Donegal manager Davy McLaughlin. “We were relegated from Division 1 having lost all the games, whilst Armagh were promoted from Division 3 having won all of theirs, so they are probably slight favourites because of that; they’ve been winning.“But we’ve come a long way in a short time. I’m there 10 or 11 weeks and we’re going to give it a good go. We’ll throw everything at it.”A few extra supporters from Tir Chonaill might help.“I was delighted with the slot and venue; it means fans leaving Clones can stop off in Lisnaskea, get a bite to eat and come and support the Ladies,” says Davy. He has lost some well-known players for various reasons “but we’ve planned for most of those” says the Moville man.Therese McCafferty and Roisín Friel are in America on holidays.He knew he’d be without Geraldine McLaughlin after a cartilage operation, but has also now lost her sister Nicole to a hamstring injury. His own daughter Niamh will be missing as she’s still at college in Britain.“I saw Armagh beat Tyrone and they beat them well, so they’re a good team,” says Davy.“But we’re going to go in and give it a go. If fans from Clones come along and get behind the girls, it might give us that wee edge and get us to an Ulster final.” ‘COME OUT AND SUPPORT THE GIRLS’ SAYS LADIES FOOTBALL MANAGER DAVY was last modified: June 21st, 2014 by John2Share 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:armaghdonegal ladiesFootballUlster semi-final clashlast_img read more
