SEGAL Awarded Best Private Security of 2015

first_imgThe Civil Society Network of Liberia (CSNL) has presented Security Expert Guard Agency of Liberia (SEGAL) an award as the best private security of the year 2015.According to the Executive Director of CSNL, Mr. Sensee Kiadii, SEGAL was given the award based on its sacrifices to protect the lives of Liberians and for braving the storm along with the national security apparatus throughout the length and breadth of the nation to ensure a stable and peaceful society.He explained that CSNL was established in 2005 with the objective of bringing together all civil society organizations under a single umbrella in order to serve as a watchdog for all government institutions and private organizations, with the sole responsibility of ensuring that they live up to the expectations of the Liberian people.He encouraged members of SEGAL to keep up the good work by protecting the lives and properties of all in the 13 of Liberia’s 15 counties in which they operate.Turning over the award to SEGAL’s Executive Director, Mr. Momo Cyrus, the Acting Director for Professional Standard at the Liberian National Police (LNP), Randolph Dennis, urged SEGAL to keep up the good work as UNMIL is about to drawdown in June. He said security is crucial to the development of every country because if the country does not have well trained and equipped security forces there would be lack of investment, new businesses and many other things that will stop the country from developing.“In the absence of a better security system, investors will be afraid to transact business in the country and a majority of the people will suffer because there is lack of businesses and investments,” he said.He also disclosed that the LNP, and other security agencies in the country, are prepared to uphold the rule of law and protect the country when UNMIL draws down.“When it comes to security in all of the counties where the presence of UNMIL is not felt, SEGAL securities are covering those areas because the private security is very supportive,” he said.Upon receiving the award, Mr. Cyrus described it as a great milestone.“This certificate will encourage us to keep up the good work by protecting the people of Liberia and we in SEGAL are considering building a SEGAL Plaza that will cost U$250, 000,” he said.He promised to work to ensure that SEGAL remains the best private security firm in the country.He further promised to invest US$75,000 in agriculture so SEGAL’s commanders in all the 13 counties can engage in agriculture.Cyrus stressed that security is key to the development of every country, and called on the government to put a stop to foreign security firms taking over the country.“No foreign security should take over this country to protect our people. Give a chance to private security firms to take responsibility over Liberia because we must foster and build the capacity of the security in Liberia,” Cyrus added.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Women take over male bastions

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – Women now earn the majority of diplomas in fields men used to dominate – from biology to business – and have caught up in pursuit of law, medicine and other advanced degrees. Even with such enormous gains over the past 25 years, women are paid less than men in comparable jobs and lag in landing top positions on college campuses. Federal statistics released Thursday show that in many ways, the gender gap among college students is widening. The story is largely one of progress for women, stagnation for men. Women earn the majority of bachelor’s degrees in business, biological sciences, social sciences and history. The same is true for traditional strongholds such as education and psychology. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2In undergraduate and graduate disciplines where women trail men, they are gaining ground, earning larger numbers of degrees in math, physical sciences and agriculture. “Women are going in directions that maybe their mothers or grandmothers never even thought about going,” said Avis Jones-DeWeever, who oversees education policy for the Institute of Women’s Policy Research. “We’re teaching girls that they need to be able to explore every opportunity that they are interested in. It’s good to see that is happening,” she said. The findings were part of a 379-page report, “The Condition of Education,” a yearly compilation of statistics that give a picture of academic trends. Women now account for about half the enrollment in professional programs such as law, medicine and optometry. That is up from 22 percent a generation ago.last_img read more

This Good Samaritan began to bring the dog food and rang all the farmers in the area to see if she was a lost sheepdog, but to no avail.However, when he returned on Saturday he was astounded to find she had given birth to five pups.Animals In Need responded to the call for help immediately and went out to find the dog and her pups, who had taken refuge in a forested area on the mountainside.The rescue volunteers found a very friendly though disheveled and matted mother dog waiting for them, with an old rope still dangling from her neck, along with her helpless pups. Named Lassie by her rescuers, the dog had sheltered her pups from the elements as best she could, but as this was an emergency situation, although AIN had absolutely no foster places available, the AIN volunteers had to take this vulnerable family to a safe place.An Animals In Need spokesperson said ‘That someone could be so cruel as to leave a pregnant dog up a deserted mountain to give birth in December defies belief and the spirit of Christmas. However, Animals In Need couldn’t say there’s no room at the inn, so even though all the dog foster places were full, we had to rescue these dogs who had no chance of survival on their own and they are in fact now being looked after by one of our cat fosterers.’Animals In Need doesn’t have a shelter or a holding place so all the animals have to be looked after by unpaid, voluntary fosterers in their own homes until a permanent home can be found for them.The spokesperson explained ‘The situation with abandoned animals and dogs dumped in the Letterkenny Pound has gotten completely out of hand in Donegal over the past few years with almost 800 animals rescued by Animals In Need in the past year, 535 of them being dogs, mostly from the Pound but also we’re seeing cases of heartless abandonment such as this.’The good news is Lassie and her pups are now safe, cosy and warm, having had a lucky escape from the very different fate that awaited them on that frozen mountainside and when the pups are old enough, they will all be found good homes as will their mum.

Big Dino Site Found in Utah

first_imgA big dinosaur fossil quarry has been found in Utah near Hanksville, reported the Associated Press (see copy on PhysOrg).  The Bureau of Land Management says it may be comparable to the Dinosaur National Monument site and other well-known quarries in the region.  Apparently feeling a need to appeal to the MTV generation, a National Geographic article mentioned it contains “big sexy dinosaurs.”    No new species were identified, but the 50 x 200 yard mass burial contains clams and large petrified tree trunks in addition to sauropods, two carnivores and a stegosaur.  The bones were found in a sandstone channel of an ancient river, the article says, and the preservation is excellent.These animals were sure dumb to keep wandering into floods that would bury them alive.  The trees were dumb, too.  Scientists, of course, have it all figured out.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
