About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Klopp on Liverpool title-run: We’ll enjoy the rideby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveJurgen Klopp says Liverpool will “enjoy the ride” as they look to claim their first top-flight title win in close to 30 years.The Reds can extend their gap at the top of the table to nine points with a win over third-placed Manchester City at the Etihad tonight.Klopp isn’t willing to put any pressure on his players and insists they will take everything as it comes.”Now, we are in a really good moment, that’s true, but we have to go to Manchester City and play all the other big ones apart from Arsenal,” Klopp told Gary Neville on Sky Sports.”It’s football. I don’t need to know now what will be in May. Who can’t really live with the time between now and May? Go on holiday and switch everything off then come back in May and see what happened. I cannot change that. I don’t want to. I want to enjoy the ride until May!”For us, the target was to qualify for the Champions League and even that is not sure because the others can win 17 games in a row.”We have to only be focused on us and that’s what we do and so far, the mood in the club and around has got better and better. We will see where that leads us to.”
Story Highlights She pointed out that 2030 Youth Jamaica can be a conduit that encourages positive change among Jamaicans. Custos of St. Andrew, Hon. Dr. Patricia Dunwell, has called for the revival of uniformed groups, such as cadets and boy scouts, in more schools across Jamaica. “Parents tend to focus more and invest more in their girls. Young males are at a disadvantage…they tend to channel their energies in crime and violence, because of a lack of motivation and low self-esteem,” she said. Custos of St. Andrew, Hon. Dr. Patricia Dunwell, has called for the revival of uniformed groups, such as cadets and boy scouts, in more schools across Jamaica.Speaking at the launch of 2030 Youth Jamaica, at the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies, on March 3, Dr. Dunwell said that over the years, there has been a decline in such groups, which are usually responsible for instilling discipline and a sense of patriotism that are needed in males.“Parents tend to focus more and invest more in their girls. Young males are at a disadvantage…they tend to channel their energies in crime and violence, because of a lack of motivation and low self-esteem,” she said.Dr. Dunwell reasoned that society must create a balance by endeavouring to empower young males, thereby helping to control crime and violence.She pointed out that 2030 Youth Jamaica can be a conduit that encourages positive change among Jamaicans.The Custos also noted that the Governor General’s Programme of Excellence (GGPE), has been promoting positive values with its focus on education, family life and volunteerism.“Annually, achievement awards are given to three age group categories in each parish. Under this programme, there is also the Summer of Service Award where young persons attending tertiary institutions are given voluntary work projects during the summer and are then awarded with scholarships for their final year,” she said.A national youth-led organisation, 2030 Youth Jamaica aims to encourage young persons to engage in the promotion of the ideals of Vision 2030 Jamaica agenda, which is the strategic road map guiding the country to achieve its goals of sustainable development and prosperity by 2030.The youth group will initiate new actions to drive positive changes through leadership, active citizenship, diplomatic relations and engaging young people about having a sustainable developed country by 2030.In an interview with JIS News, Associate Executive Director of 2030 Youth Jamaica, Kadesha Croney, said the organisation will rely on the power of youth, “who are the future,” to enable the country to achieve Vision 2030.According to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Handbook for Youth, young people are essential to achieving the SDGs.In fact, the handbook notes that young men and women have “enormous ability to make change, not only for themselves but also for their societies and the rest of the world.”Ms. Croney said the next step for the organisation is to go into schools and communities to promote the vision of the organisation.During the launch, the Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ), the agency tasked with creating the national development plans, provided insights into Vision 2030.
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A member of the Fort St. John RCMP detachment is being called a hero after saving the life of a man who injured himself in the parking lot of an apartment building on the City’s east side over the weekend.Sgt. Dave Tyreman with the Fort St. John RCMP said that officers were called out to an apartment building in the 8500-block of 86th St. at around 2:00 a.m. Sunday. Upon arrival, officers discovered a man next to a vehicle who was unresponsive and appeared to have lost a large quantity of blood.Officers learned that the man had recently come home from an evening out and police suspect he may have been intoxicated. The man, who may have been involved in a previous dispute, punched his car’s passenger window after coming home, severing an artery in his arm and causing the significant blood loss. Sgt. Tyreman said that the man was extremely fortunate that Constable Tony Brooks, who has advanced medical training, was one of the officers who attended the scene. Cst. Brooks is currently involved in the RCMP’s Tactical Medical program.Sgt. Tyreman explained that Doctors advised the man would likely have bled to death were it not for the efforts of Cst. Brooks, who managed to pack the wound to close off the artery inside the man’s arm and stop the flow of blood.The man, whose identity has not been released, was airlifted to a Vancouver area hospital for treatment, after which doctors called the local detachment to find out how the injury had occurred. “The detachment received feedback from Vancouver Doctors who had inquired with the Doctor in charge of the Tactical Medical Program to applaud the incredible work done by Cst. Brooks, who literally saved this man’s life,’” said Sgt. Tyreman, who is currently acting as the Fort St John detachment’s commander.

Also Read – An income drop can harm brainIn its introduction, the author has offered five stages for establishing outer order. First, we make choices – what possessions to keep and what to do with them. Once we’ve cleared through our things, we create order by organising, repairing, and attending to neglected areas. Next, we reflect on ourselves, to know ourselves, and others, so that we can take those individuals insights into account. Then, once the clutter is vanquished, it’s useful to cultivate helpful habits to maintain that order, so the clutter doesn’t return. The fifth and the final step is to add beauty to to make out surrounding more inviting and comfortable.
