first_imgThe Holy Bible presents very details explanation about Satan being the by-product and counterfeit of the original creations of God. This personal turn-around requires submissive prove beyond doubt for God to pardon Satan. In the process for Satan making his wrong right, he became demoralized and wayward with one third of the angelic hosts of heaven that followed him into rebellion, excommunication from heaven and started pressuring mankind on earth to collaborate with them against God (Ezekiel 28:12+; Luke 10:18; Job 1:6+,12; Ephesians 6:12 NKJV). Satan has been working this way since then.The Holy Bible is crystal clear about the inspirational penmanship, inerrancy and authoritativeness of all Scripture (2 Timothy 3:16). Jesus Christ assures that “the Scripture cannot be broken” (John 10:35) so when the Word of God is released, it will not return without accomplishment (Isaiah 55:11).This very strong confirmation uncovers a lot about the divine orchestration of Liberia biblical prophecies well written far in advance for fulfillment by this 21st century generation of Liberians. As the children of Israel were delivered from Egyptian slavery so it was with the citizens of Liberia from Satanic bondage. As the Israelites underwent 40 years of wandering and test in the wilderness and dispatched spies to the Promised Land so Liberians have also spent 40 years, from 1972 and sent spies in 2012 to survey their promised “Sweet Land …a home of glorious liberty by God’s command.”Exactly as reported the Promised Land is good but Liberians must fight to possess it.Let me quickly point out that this battle is not against the natural human beings as flesh and blood rather against the evil influences imposed by the demonic powers from Satan (Ephesians 6:10+). This is the battle waging between the spirits that actually manifested physically when the 700,000 signatures petitioned the Legislators for return of Christianity to Liberia in March 2012.  The Ebola outbreak in Liberia during March 2014 echoes the battle cry from the high affliction upon the satanic forces. Because of the insensitivity of Liberians to comply with the heavenly mandate and backup the spiritual rules of engagement, the people on earth must therefore suffer the physical wrath for tempting God and limiting the sovereignty of the Holy One (Psalm 78:41) fully capable of making peace, and creating evil (Isaiah 45:7) with this extraordinary disease (Deuteronomy 28:59) introduced to the Liberian people from the north (Jeremiah 4:6). Liberians must rethink their divine purpose in Africa (Genesis 11:8; 12:3; Deuteronomy 26:18+; Ezekiel 11:19; 2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Thessalonians 5:9).Ebola is again another added curse upon Liberians (Leviticus 26:14+; Deuteronomy 27:15; 28:1-6; Joshua 23:15+; Jeremiah 31:31+; Isaiah 56:3; Matthew 5:17; Luke 22:20).If Ebola outbreaks were likened to the return of Jesus Christ to this earth, would you be ready for such end time event? Absolutely no! The mere fact that the potential spread and deadly nature could not be detected from the onset pinpoints the unprepared reception of the disease across the nations it has attacked in West Africa.Liberia has an extraordinary “Ebola” pandemic: speedy, quick, fast and rapid in every way that drew the public concern about spiritual attack. Christian and Muslim leaders claiming similar God, declared days of fasting and praying for national forgiveness of the wickedness committed. The severity of the disease coupled with its methods of cure convinced many people that indeed Liberia is experiencing yet another curse. The Liberian government imposed a State of Emergency and curfew in order to control the lawlessness and denial while health and social workers cater to the sick or dead ones and public awareness. The Bible verse at 2 Chronicles 7:14 was selected as the national reference theme.If Ebola ceases on this day, can you reason out the cessation? If the Ebola Virus persists henceforth, can you reason out the persistence? Anyhow your reasonable response, in this narrative intended to explain the conclusion reached after thoroughly considering and investigating the questions, it remains historically proven and biblically authentic that “…God cannot be mocked…” (Galatians 6:7).By this fact, God has given me the battle plan to defeat Satan with his demonic forces and evil-minded agents so simple as the eradication of the infectious, contiguous, incurable and deadly disease – Ebola. Therefore, when Liberians will understand to obey and act accordingly (1 Samuel 15:22), Satan would have no more place in Liberia.There is no greater miracle than God revealing His secrets only to save the people who are called by His name (Genesis 18:17; Deuteronomy 29:29; 2 Chronicles 7:14; Amos 3:7).In the next paper, I will provide you with three major underlying reasons for this legal conflict instigated by Satan and the final victory of God over the deceitful influence of Satan in Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgDaddy Willie, survivor of the Ebola Virus Disease and also the head of the Ebola Survivors Network in Kakata, Margibi CountyBy Evelyn Kpadeh Seagbeh and Siatta Scott JohnsonThe survival of Daddy Kerkulah Willie and his spouse Helena Tamba from the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in 2015 was like a miracle. But, like many other survivors, the couple still struggles with the aftermath of the virus. They were hopeful when they learnt that a USAID-funded project promised to deliver free medical treatment to survivors. However, they were turned back without medicines. Nineteen (19)out of the 22 survivors we interviewed were not able to get the promised comprehensive care.“Many people died in this country from Ebola,” Kerkulah explained, “but we survived, and not being able to get real healthcare for our present health condition puts fear in me and I think our lives are at risk even after Ebola.” Kerkulah lost two members of his family while his spouse, Helena, lost all of hers.The USAID-funded Ebola Transmission Prevention & Survivors Services Project aims to help survivors like Kerkulah and Helena. It is a US$9 million project started in August 2016 to strengthen the capacity of the health system and provide free comprehensive specialty healthcare services needed by Ebola survivors.Over eight months ago, Kerkulah and Helena were informed through the National Ebola Survivors Network’s leadership about USAID’s free healthcare services for survivors at 11 health facilities, including the local government Hospital C.H. Rennie in Kakata. The couple decided to take advantage of the opportunity since they could not afford to pay for their treatment.“We were told that we will get treatment for any condition,” Kerkula told us. However, at the Catholic Hospital, the medicine he needed was not available. Instead, he was given a prescription. At the St. Joseph Catholic Hospital in Congo Town, Monrovia, Dr. Ahmad Aljawish recommended that he buys the medicine at a pharmacy on Mechlin Street in central Monrovia, whose name he does not remember.“The pharmacy agreed to treat me for 3 months and my bill was $US120; but they said when the medicine arrives in the country they would contact me, and since September 2017 I have been waiting.“It’s about my health so I have been taking in country medicine (traditional medicine) because I want to get well,” Kerkulah told us.His spouse, Helena, experienced the same situation, as did most of the survivors we interviewed in three of the four counties covered by the project. The USAID-funded project raised the hopes of Ebola survivors but has failed to deliver.The USAID’s Ebola survivors projectLiberia’s fragile healthcare system coming out of 14 years of civil war was badly affected by the outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease in 2014, killing over 4 thousand people, leaving behind over 8 thousand Ebola orphans and about 5 thousand survivors in Liberia alone.The virus ravaged the country’s entire healthcare delivery system, killing some of the country’s few good doctors and creating a serious gap in the sector.On January 14, 2016, Liberia was declared Ebola free by the World Health Organization (WHO). However, three years on, about 80% of the survivors of the outbreak still have medical complications as the aftermath of the disease. Their conditions range from liver infections, impotency, and problems with their eyesight, heart diseases, body and joint pains.The USAID project aims to help those survivors get on with their lives. The project’s healthcare pillar, according to the project’s document, is implemented by John Snow Incorporated (JSI), an American company. The firm is charged with providing specialized clinical health services needed to care for common complications faced by Ebola survivors, with particular focus on mental health and sub-specialty services such as neurology, rheumatology and ophthalmology.According to Dr. Rose McCaulay, the Chief of Party (COP) for JSI in Liberia, the project targets survivors in 4 of Liberia’s 15 counties: Montserrado, Bong, Lofa and Margibi. The free healthcare is given in two private faith-based hospitals, ELWA and St. Joseph Catholic, as well as several government facilities, such as C.H. Rennie Hospital, Redemption Hospital, JFK Hospital, Dolo Town Health Center and Phebe Hospital. Others are Tellewoyan Hospital, Du-Port Road Health Center, Foya and Kolahun hospitals.“Ebola survivors who can prove that they are survivors can go to ELWA and Catholic hospitals in Monrovia for any condition that they have and they will be treated free of charge,” Dr. McCauley told us.“The complaints survivors have had with the government facilities, which is not the case with the two private faith-based facilities, is that when they go to the government facilities they are given prescriptions, but when they go to these two private facilities, they are not given prescriptions, they are given comprehensive care free of charge for any condition,” the JSI chief of party claimed.But 19 out of the 22 survivors who visited both the private and government facilities have complained that they cannot access drugs and were made to purchase their drugs elsewhere at their own expense. This includes 6 survivors who visited the private hospitals and were not able to get drugs for free.In a second interview on January 17, 2018 contradicting her earlier comment that JSI was not responsible for drugs at  government facilities, Dr. McCauley admitted that the newly-arrived drugs will be distributed to government facilities in conjunction with the Ministry of Health.Contacted by email, USAID has refused to comment. They’ve also declined to provide the specific cost of the project in Liberia, including the price and quantity of the drugs that arrived in country.Dr. McCauley confirmed that the project started two years ago, and was nearly finished, but the drugs only arrived in Liberia in January 2018. She blamed the delay in the arrival of the drugs on procedural issues in the procurement processes by Chemonics, the company responsible to procure the drugs under a USAID arrangement.Chemonics is a US-based international development organization operating in about 70 countries and manages project in developing countries, fronting for bids and mainly contracts from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).Chemonic’s  Herbert Rwabugahya, who is the country Director as well as Contractor for USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program Procurement and Supply Chain Management in Monrovia, promised to get back to us but we have not heard back since February 1, 2018.From saving Ebola victims to becoming one50-year-old Konah Massaquoi is an ambulance driver for the Ministry of Health. He contracted the Ebola virus while driving infected persons to treatment centers. Despite risking his life to save others, he is still struggling with his health condition while caring for his daughter.Mr. Konah Massaquoi at the National Ambulance Base, in Monrovia, where he worked when he contracted EbolaKonah’s daughter was infected by the Ebola virus, which has impeded her mobility. At almost 4 years old, she’s just started walking, but very slowly and does not talk yet.Konah told us that he suffers severe pains in his lower abdomen as a result of his Ebola infection.So he visited Catholic Hospital but there again he did not get free treatment. “I did all the tests and I was told to buy drugs, because I had sore on my liver, so the doctor told me they never had the medicine there, I should pay for it. I was forced to buy the medicine from the same doctor that directed me to the clinic here in Clara Town called Mawah or what. I went to that clinic and paid him US$35 for the medicine.” He added that at both the government and private hospitals he visits, Redemption and Catholic, he always has to pay for his drugs.His drugs were given him in a dispenser bag without the drug’s name, but only the dosage and was issued no receipt.Dr. Amad Aljawish works in three health facilities : Mawah Clinic, the Catholic Hospital, and now his newly-established Syriana Medical Center.Syriana Medical Center belongs to Dr. Amad Aljawish. There, survivors and non survivors purchase the good drugs they need that they cannot get from Catholic Hospital or Mawah Clinic.Dr. Aljawish confirmed to us that he does refer patients that meet him at Catholic Hospital to Mawah and sometimes to Syriana to purchase medication that best suits their situation.He said, “We bring most of our medicine from outside, some from Europe, we have good medicines, and we have medicine for many conditions here at Syriana.“We can help them, I have medicine for enlarged heart, infection in the liver,” Dr. Aljawish confirmed.Syriana and Mawah are two of the many private health facilities where survivors spend their own money to access adequate care despite the USAID project that is supposed to provide care at no expense to survivors.Moreover, Syriana is not registered with the Liberia Business Registry, a legal body responsible to grant legal operating licenses to businesses operating in Liberia. According to section 4.5 of the Liberia Business Registry act, a business registry certificate is required to operate legally in the country.The  then Director General of the Liberia Business Registry Mr. Abu Kamara said, “As far as we are concerned, the Syriana Medical Clinic does not exist— meaning that it is not registered with us.” Despite the lack of registration, the Liberia Medical and Dental Council on January 1, 2018 licensed Syriana under the proprietorship of Ahmad A. A. Aljawish and Angie Griffith.Rural survivors fare the worseIn the rural area, the situation is even worse for survivors who have to walk several miles to get to healthcare facilities.Bebe Tamba, an Ebola survivor expecting a baby32-year-old Bebe Tamba, living in a village in Lofa County, has survived Ebola. She is now expecting a baby, but she’s worried about the child’s safety and her life. She feels excruciating pains in her joints and body that often causes weakness in her back and waist.In September, October and November 2017, she visited the Telewoyan Hospital, a leading government health center in Lofa, but could not get drugs for her prenatal care. She travels 52 kilometers or 1 hour 30 minutes riding on a motorbike from Foya to Voinjama to the hospital.Bebe Tamba laments, “When we heard that JSI will be giving us free medical care, I was happy, but three times now I went to Telewoyan Hospital and they told me no drugs.”The sales of drugs in polythene bags or in plastic buckets under the hot weather is common in rural communities. The government had cracked down on this mode of drugs circulation in the past. But without alternatives, survivors have resorted to consuming drugs from “black –baggers,” the illegal drug suppliers, and private medicine stores.Dolo Town Health Center in Dolo Town, one of the hard-hit Ebola communitiesFrustration among survivorsPatrick Farley, the president of the survivors’ Network which is responsible to coordinate activities of Ebola survivors in the country, said that the secretariat estimates that only  310 survivors got clinical care across the country since the start of the project  and out of 1,210 visits.Patrck Farley – speaks with Reuters in an exclusive interview at JFK Hospital in MonroviaHe explained that the USAID-funded treatment centers “are on paper, but in reality they are not functioning well. We are frustrated; there was no need for the JSI project to come to Liberia because survivors are not getting the comprehensive clinical care as stipulated in the project.“Where is the comprehensive care when survivors are asked to purchase their own drugs,” he asked. “The comprehensive healthcare for survivors is cosmetic.”Farley told us that the Network would file a lawsuit against JSI for its failure to deliver on the clinical care for survivors and engage the donor of the USAID project about the situation.“I challenge the JSI family to come and tell me that the clinical care met its objectives,” he said.This story was written as part of ‘Reporting after the epidemic’ journalism programme run by the Thomson Reuters Foundation.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgHowever, without the talismanic presence of Virgil van Dijk through suspension and the injured Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren, Liverpool at least did not concede an away goal despite fielding a make-shift central defensive pairing of Brazilian midfielder Fabinho and Joel Matip.“It’s not the result or the game we dreamed of,” said Klopp. “It is not a game we will remember in 30 years. It’s the result we have and we will work with that.“It was a clean sheet without the big man (Van Dijk). A lot of people wouldn’t have expected that. The defending was good. A lot of things were really good, I’m not over the moon but I’m completely OK with the game.”That unfamiliarity in Liverpool’s defence showed in the early stages as the hosts started nervously at the back.Matip breathed a sigh of relief when he turned Serge Gnabry’s driven cross towards his own goal only for the ball to bounce to safety off Alisson Becker’s chest.However, the Brazilian goalkeeper played his side into trouble moments later to put pressure on Matip and when he was dispossessed by Robert Lewandowski, Kingsley Coman fired into the side-netting.Liverpool were also posing plenty of problems at the other end, although their final ball often lacked precision.“We made life more difficult with the last pass today about 10 or 12 times,” added Klopp. “We can play better and we should play better.”Mohamed Salah headed wide at the back post from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s perfectly measured cross.– Mane wastes big chance –Mane then passed up the best chance for either side as he shot wide on the turn after Naby Keita’s initial effort was blocked by the arm of Niklas Suele.Bayern may not have hit the heights of previous years in the Bundesliga this season as they trail Borussia Dortmund by three points in their quest to land a seventh straight league title.However, the German champions have made the last eight of the Champions League for each of the past seven seasons and had the experience to hold out for what they clearly saw as a valuable draw as they wound the clock down in the final stages.“I can’t remember that many clubs that have not conceded at Anfield. They way Liverpool play, they are a sensationally good team. My team as a whole kept everything tight at the back,” said Bayern boss Niko Kovac.“We didn’t score but we didn’t let one in. Home games are an advantage, we play in front of 75,000, but we know if we concede we have to win.”Liverpool had 10 days off to prepare for Bayern’s visit due to their early exit in the FA Cup and looked the fresher side as they pressed for a winner.Mane forced Manuel Neuer to produce his best save of the night to turn a low header behind five minutes from time.Klopp’s men have lost all of their last five Champions League games away from Anfield, including last season’s final.The return of Van Dijk will aid their chances, but that rot will need to stop in Munich in three weeks’ time if they are to reach the last eight.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000A frustrating night for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp ended in a 0-0 draw against Bayern Munich in the Champions League © AFP / Oli SCARFFLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Feb 20 – Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admitted an underwhelming 0-0 draw against old foes Bayern Munich on Tuesday was not what he “dreamed of”, but remained confident of progressing to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.Sadio Mane wasted the best chance when the Senegalese forward fired wide during an open first 45 minutes, but a cagey second half left it all to be decided when the sides meet again in Munich on March 13.last_img read more

first_imgEuropa has one. Enceladus has one. Titan might have one. Now, it seems every moon wants an ocean under its crust.Europa was one of the first to boast of an ocean under its ice. Now that vapor plumes have been confirmed by Hubble, the icy moon of Jupiter joins Saturn’s moon Enceladus as a Yellowstone Park of sorts. With the explosion of water from deep down, can hydrobioscopy be far behind? David Rothery (The Open University) writes for The Conversation, “New water plumes from Jupiter’s moon Europa raise hopes of detecting microbial life.” [Note to reader: no life has been detected.] Rothery doesn’t ask, predictably, how long this eruptive process could be going on. Nor does Alexandra Witze at Nature, who is more interested in the suggestion that “Watery jets could be tapping into a buried ocean with the potential to support life.” Ditto for Astrobiology Magazine and its update. Images of the telltale vapor plumes were posted on Space.com.The newcomer to the ocean club is Saturn’s medium-size moon Dione. Science Daily says that a study from Belgium proposes an ocean 100 miles below the moon’s icy crust. That’s a lot farther down than the one presumed under Enceladus. The “club of ocean worlds” is growing with each new mission to the outer solar system, the article says. That club is coextensive with the hydrobioscopy club:Dione’s ocean has probably survived for the whole history of the moon, and thus offers a long-lived habitable zone for microbial life. “The contact between the ocean and the rocky core is crucial,” said Attilio Rivoldini, co-author of the study. “Rock-water interactions provide key nutrients and a source of energy, both being essential ingredients for life.” The ocean of Dione seems to be too deep for easy access, but Enceladus as well as Jupiter’s moon Europa are generous enough to eject water samples in space, ready to be picked up by a passing spacecraft.Illustra’s new film Origin mentions a few more requirements for life than just matter and energy.“Wait for me!” Pluto cries to the club of ocean worlds. Astrobiology Magazine shouts, “Pluto’s ‘heart’ sheds light on a possible buried ocean.” A new study from New Horizons Spacecraft data “finds a high likelihood that there’s more than 100 kilometers of liquid water beneath Pluto’s surface” with a high salt content similar to the Dead Sea. Scientists don’t actually detect water itself, but infer it from density measurements and orbital mechanics. The peculiar heart shape of Pluto’s Sputnik Planum tantalizes theorists with images of an impact puncturing the ocean, allowing slushy material to well up into the crater. In this case, though, they’re not mentioning life.The scenario that best reconstructed Sputnik Planum’s observed size depth, while also producing a crater with compensated mass, was one in which Pluto has an ocean layer more than 100 kilometers thick, with a salinity of around 30 percent.“What this tells us is that if Sputnik Planum is indeed a positive mass anomaly —and it appears as though it is — this ocean layer of at least 100 kilometers has to be there,” Johnson said. “It’s pretty amazing to me that you have this body so far out in the solar system that still may have liquid water.”Back at Enceladus, geysers are erupting water out the rifts at the rate of a few hundred kilograms per second, a new study at Icarus claims. At one flyby, the data supports 900 kilograms per second, about half a ton per second, 30 tons per minute, 1,800 tons per hour, 43,000 tons per Earth day. Could that much material come out of this little moon for billions of years? Quick: someone do the math.Bodies without oceans can take some comfort by other kinds of activity. Astrobiology Magazine says, “The Incredible Shrinking Mercury is Active After All.” The activity is the buckling of fault scarps as the planet cools. Some of the scarps appear “geologically young,” the scientists say. “The young age of the small scarps means that Mercury joins Earth as a tectonically active planet, with new faults likely forming today as Mercury’s interior continues to cool and the planet contracts.”“This is why we explore,” said NASA Planetary Science Director Jim Green at Headquarters in Washington, D.C. “For years, scientists believed that Mercury’s tectonic activity was in the distant past. It’s exciting to consider that this small planet – not much larger than Earth’s moon – is active even today.”Icarus announced the presence of volatile ices on Mercury locked in cold traps that never see sunlight, but warned that they are not protected from magnetospheric charged particles, galactic cosmic rays and solar energetic particles. What happens when the delicate ices are hit with this energy?This focused radiation will initiate chemistry that may create dark compounds that could be the dark low-albedo materials observed by MESSENGER instruments. Thick layers will be created by radiolysis and chemistry as well as gardening, overturn, sputtering and other physical processes occurring simultaneously.Some of that activity is evident in the “planet’s weird surface” features, Space.com says, where young-looking terrain sits alongside heavily cratered regions. The origin of Mercury is still in dispute. In “How Was Mercury Formed?” Space.com contributor Nola Taylor Redd gives it her best shot, investigating three contradictory models, ending with a shooting-gallery model of violent collisions with one big blow that made Mercury what it is today – if you like war stories.“The larger objects now tend to scatter the smaller ones more than the smaller ones scatter them back, so the smaller ones end up getting scattered out of the pebble disk,” study co-author Katherine Kretke, also from SwRI, told Space.com. “The bigger guy basically bullies the smaller one so they can eat all the pebbles themselves, and they can continue to grow up to form the cores of the giant planets.”Every good space tale leaves enough gaps in the scenario to keep the scientists gainfully employed.The gaps help keep the cycle going. Materialist scientists feed stories to the teachers, who inspire the children to imagine deep oceans swimming with weird alien creatures. The children grow up to become material scientists.  Round and round it goes. Everyone’s happy except the planets, who say, “Hey, I’m dead.” (Visited 53 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
