Election Campaign Kicks Off Low in Nimba

first_imgThe special senatorial campaign has kicked off in Nimba County despite poor expectation from the community.The first day of the campaign in Nimba County is not impressive as compared to the 2011 general election which was overwhelming beyond everybody’s expectation.Among the six candidates contesting the senatorial seat, two in Cllr Yarmin Quiqui Gbeisay and former Nimba Supt. Edith Gongloe Weh were actively seen on fliers posted in public places around Ganta.The momentum around Nimba is not high as compared to the 2011 general election, where the citizens were overwhelmingly involved.  Only a few persons were seemed on the streets of Ganta posting fliers for both Cllr Gbeisay and Edith Wehyee.The remaining candidates, including Senator Prince Y. Johnson, former Education Minister Joseph Kortoe, former AFL General John Teah and Mr. Peter Weator are yet to be seen in the public.But according to supporters of Prince Johnson, they will be launching on the 27th of November, where three cows are expected to be killed.  The camp of Mr. Peter Weatoe said they will be launching on 23rd November in the Nimba border town of Karnplay, but nothing is being heard from Dr. Joseph Kortoe as of yet.An Early opinion poll conducted on the 12th of November by the local radio station in Ganta gave Senator Prince Y. Johnson an edge with 20 points, followed by Cllr Yarmie Quiqui Gbeinsay with 12 points in senatorial bid for Nimba.However, a group under the banner “Concerned Nimbaians” is calling on all Nimbaians to turn out en masse to cast their vote for the best interest of the county, but expressed its neutrality in the ongoing campaigning process as a group.“An individual of the group has the right to campaign for anybody of their choice, but as a group we remain neutral,” said Sam Ta Kruah, a spokesperson.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Province implements interim moratorium on the protection of the Caribou

first_imgDoug Donaldson, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, said, “We’re taking these actions because we want to protect the caribou herds while limiting potential economic impacts. This allows us to look after the interests of workers and communities as we take real action to recover the herds.”In March 2019, the Draft Section 11 Agreement Draft Partnership Agreement and public engagement on caribou recovery took place. In April, the Premier appointed Lekstrom as the community liaison in which Lekstrom will continue to engage residents and act between the Government and communities in regards to caribou protection plans. VANCOUVER, B.C. – An interim moratorium on new resource development has been implemented in Northeastern B.C. to allow further engagement with affected communities and industries on long-term caribou protection strategies.Blair Lekstrom’s report on caribou recovery has been released by the Government which makes 14 recommendations, including the call for the interim moratorium and the continuous work with the Saulteau and West Moberly First Nations to protect the region’s caribou herds.“Blair Lekstrom has recommended that we press the pause button on new resource development and take more time to engage with affected communities and industries while taking necessary steps to protect caribou,” said Premier John Horgan. “Everyone in the Peace region agrees that we need to recover our caribou herds and protect local jobs. Regrettably, this issue has divided communities and provoked sentiments that have no place in British Columbia. The only way we will make progress is by working together. We must listen and work collaboratively to find the best solution.”- Advertisement -The announcement of the Government’s intention to sign the Southern Mountain Caribou Bilateral Conservation Agreement, Section 11, was also made as the agreement establishes a framework for co-operation between Canada and B.C. to work collaboratively with Indigenous nations, local governments, industry and communities to develop caribou management plans for southern mountain caribou.“Chief Ken Cameron of the Saulteau First Nation and Chief Roland Willson of the West Moberly First Nation have provided visionary leadership on caribou recovery. We are asking them to work with our government and the federal government as we engage with community, industry and stakeholder groups to protect this iconic species while supporting a healthy local economy.” said the PremierThe Government says that in the past 20 years, the numbers in the central group of the southern mountain caribou population have faced serious decline. This has called-to-action engagement with the public and Indigenous communities and the prohibition of new high-impact forestry and mining activities, while negotiations on a long-term caribou management strategy are underway.Advertisementlast_img read more


first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: Last weekend I was spoke at a baby fayre.My talk was on exercise post-pregnancy and had a huge emphasis on rebuilding the core and pelvic floor again after childbirth.My wife had 2 C-sections with our daughters and wasn’t given any advice on proper training for the abdominal area. The only thing she was told repeatedly was “Keep doing your kegels.” While this is true, it’s not enough. It seems to be a case of “Congratulations. Be careful now. You have just had surgery.”Let’s face it, if you had any other major operation in the abdominal region, you wouldn’t be allowed to pick up a cup for 4-6 weeks.You do not get this luxury however after giving birth.The abdominal area and the pelvic floor are extremely important. Every woman wants them functioning properly after childbirth, but this is the area that is often the most difficult to regain control over.The golden rule for exercise after any type of birth is to wait until after your 6 week check up with your doctor. After that, the focus of your training should be on getting stronger and rebuilding the areas that were weakened during pregnancy.Yes, weight loss is another goal to have, but it should not take precedence over getting yourself strong and healthy again.Strength training should be your main focus after childbirth.Using the right exercises will help strengthen your back and core is extremely important considering you will be lifting a baby that will get progressively heavier over the coming weeks.You can use your own body weight, resistance bands, dumbbells, kettlebells, barbells depending on what you have at home, or what is available in your gym. Home workouts may suit better at the start, as time is a luxury we don’t always have when we have a new baby in the house.You can use anything in the 5-15 rep range for 2-3 sets and you should use proper form through all exercises.So, if you were doing a squat for example, you would do 10 reps, take a short rest and repeat for 2-3 sets.You can train the full body in each session, but you should have a focus on the posterior chain. This involves the glutes (butt), hamstrings, and upper back muscles.You have had all that extra weight on the front side of your body throughout your pregnancy and it can have an adverse effect on your lower back and your posture.Exercises like Sumo Deadlifts, squats, reverse lunges, glute bridges, hip thrusts, rows, and pulling exercises for the upper pack should be your main focus.They will help to strengthen the back and may prevent back pain!When it comes to the core, the training you should be doing isn’t what you think.Sit-ups are the last thing that you should do when trying to rebuild the core again.Exercises like the ones listed below would be more suitable to what you need rather than sit ups.• DEAD BUGS.• SIDE PLANKS• FRONT PLANKS (DEPENDING ON DIASTASIS RECTI)• FARMER’S WALKS• PALLOF PRESSES•Remember that the aim is to rebuild the area first, this should come before any thoughts of abs.If Diastasis Recti is an issue, these 2 exercises below are a good way to start with some core training to help with this issue.• HEEL SLIDES• GLUTE BRIDGE• 8-15 REPS, 1-2 SETS, 3-7 DAYS PER WEEK.Problems with the pelvic floor can go on for years after childbirth if it is not strengthened properly.Kegels (pelvic floor contractions) should be done daily.Try and get in the habit of doing 1 or 2 sets of 10 repetitions when you can.You can also progress these into your strength work, for example on the upward movement of a squat you can draw the pelvic floor up on each rep.If you have problems with your pelvic floor, there are certain exercises that you may want to avoid.Try to avoid jumping jacks, running, squat jumps and box jumps until your pelvic floor is rock solid and this could be many months postpartum, depending on your recovery.Some women are capable of resuming physical activities within days of delivery depending if they were physically active before and during pregnancy.In the absence of medical or surgical complications, rapid resumption of these activities has not been found to result in adverse effects.Regular aerobic exercise in lactating women has been shown to improve maternal cardiovascular fitness without affecting milk production, or infant growth.Nursing women should consider feeding their infants before exercising in order to avoid exercise discomfort.Nursing women also should ensure adequate hydration before commencing physical activity.If you are short on time, or have pelvic floor issues and you would like to get your strength and cardio training in, short mini circuits are a simple way to get them done.10 reps each exercise on each side if applicable, 2-5 sets.• 1a) Kb sumo deadlift• 1b) TRX Rows• 1c) Reverse lunges• 1d) 1/2 kneeling banded chest pressWhenever you choose to start back training again postpartum the most important consideration is starting slow and being safe.If you have exercised before, consider your current fitness level. Do you have any injuries? Do you have any illnesses? Always consult your doctor.If you would like more information on training before, during or after pregnancy, check out this great resource here.#TrainSmartIf you would like any more information, you can contact me through the link below.
