Conex Breaks Ground for Phase II of Petroleum Storage Terminal

first_imgVP Howard-Taylor and others celebrate the groundbreaking of the Conex Petroleum Storage Terminal.Cherif M. Abdallah, chairman, and chief executive officer of a local petroleum company, Conex Petroleum Group Incorporated, on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, broke ground to construct phase II of a storage terminal, located in the courtyard of the Bong Mines Pier at the Freeport of Monrovia.The project, according to Mr. Abdallah, when completed, will add value, ensuring that the strategic reserve and savings on the flight of foreign exchange from the country, while creating additional revenue through royalties to the Liberian Petroleum Refinery Company (LPRC), taxes to the government and community development projects.Accordingly, it will also ensure petroleum product sufficiency and job creation, “but will take approximately 24 months from commencement of construction.”“Here we are today with a modern petroleum storage terminal built strictly on the American Petroleum Institute (API) standard, to include the construction of the Oil Processing Facility,” Abdallah said.He believes that the future of the nation depends on a vibrant Liberian-owned private sector.Mr. Abdallah therefore called on other well-meaning Liberians “to join us in building small, medium and large-scale businesses that will be the means by which we all forge ahead into the successful future of our country.”He informed Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor that political independence without economic independence does not meet the need of the citizens at all. Therefore, Conex has decided to work collaboratively with the Coalition for Democratic Change-led government to bring economic independence to Liberians.Mr. Abdallah made these remarks at the groundbreaking ceremony to commence the construction of its refinery phase II project.Abdallah said Conex’s vision is in line with President Weah’s call on all Liberians not to become spectators in their own country, but to create businesses, and be a part of their country’s economy.As a Liberian-owned petroleum company, Conex focuses on job creation for the Liberians, energy production, international partnerships, which will add value to the economy, and increase Domestic Production that supports the balance of trade and, in turn, strengthens currency.“Madam Vice President, I would like to thank you for creating the business climate necessary for the Liberian private sector to participate in your government’s national development agenda,” Abdallah said.According to him, when government support is given to Conex, it will create international partnerships and joint ventures with multi-national corporations and in the sub region.“The end result is a win-win situation for the government and people of Liberia,” Mr. Abdallah added.He recalled that when Conex initially took over the property at the Bong Mines Pier from the government, there was oil from a spill that covered approximately five acres of land with two dilapidated storage tanks, of which only one was rehabilitated.He expressed gratitude to LPRC and Ministry of Commerce and Industry, National Port Authority, Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Investment Commission, for their support to the project.He also recognized his international partners, starting with Africa Finance Corporation, GEMCORP Capital, Montserrado Investments, Lutech Engineering, V-Fuels, and Saga Global Partners.Vice President Taylor, who proxied for President Weah, expressed gratitude for the level of work the Conex Group has done so far.She added, “we want to thank the banking sector, our partners who have been part of this process; and the government for providing an enabling environment in the country’s business sector.Madam Taylor, therefore, encouraged Conex to lead by example that others will follow, adding, “we know this is just the first of many that all of us will wake up from our slumber, but this country is ours.”The ceremony was attended by officials and representatives from LPRC, GEMCORP, NIC, LBDI, Montserrado Investments and the NPA.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Putting a new wrinkle on age-slowing

first_imgThen the mail came. With the opening of each envelope, my euphoria slowly dissipated. Each piece of literature reminded me that I was racing against the clock and I was losing the race. All had suggestions for putting off the inevitable. The publisher of one letter assumed I was way past my prime because she offered to sell me a wrinkle cream that was guaranteed to make me look 10 years younger. Another wanted me to subscribe to a magazine that would give me practical guidance about nutrients and hormones to slow aging. I decided not to let them play on my insecurities and quickly threw out those pieces of trash. Music. That’s what I needed. Soothing music. My trusty radio was at hand, but tuning in to my favorite music station brought me no solace. An arrogant commercial told me I may have Age-Related Cognitive Degeneration, or ARCD, and need to take pills that will not only make me look and feel younger, but will improve my memory and my libido. These magic pills would eradicate free radical cells that destroy good cells and bring on diseases that aging inevitably invites. Hmmm, I once read that oregano contains the same magic. So many choices for feeling and looking young again – Botox, antidepressants, sleeping aids; pills for lowering cholesterol, blood pressure and weight. Do you want to boost your energy level and improve diminishing memory function? Just take these drugs. And my personal favorite – an ad that claims to abolish those unsightly lumps on hips, thighs and waist nonsurgically in one day! But there was a ray of sunshine when I opened one of my favorite magazines to see the image of a naked, slightly overweight, 50ish woman fill a whole page. It was tastefully done. She was photographed from the side, her knees up, hiding the essentials. Her pose did not hide her rolls of flesh. Another page pictured a woman, her gray hairs untouched and wrinkles intact, looking as though she were quite happy with herself. Though these women would never qualify for the centerfold of Playboy magazine, I was delighted to see these au naturel ladies because they looked like most of us. After all, how many post-prime women look like Christie Brinkley? The message of the advertised product declared it was not anti-age. It was pro-age; that beauty had no age limit. So there is hope that the advertising world will finally embrace women at the age at which they are and stop with the “look younger, feel younger” mantra. By midmorning, my mood went up about 10 notches but, alas, the high spirits only lasted until noon, when I met a friend for lunch. Right after we were seated, she looked at my hair and chirped, “You know, if you colored your hair, you’d look younger.” Yolanda Fintor writes out of Northridge and is the author of two cookbooks. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The instructor motivates her students by telling them how this ancient art of body conditioning will keep them young past their prime. I wonder at what age we hit our prime? The number keeps changing. Am I pre-prime, post-prime or at prime? After class I felt limber, alive and ready to face the world. I drove home full of energy and actually looked forward to the tasks waiting for me. last_img read more

Inter Milan lining up January raid on Arsenal AND north London rivals Tottenham

first_img Erik Lamela Inter Milan are trying to get their Christmas shopping all done in one early trip to London with north London duo Erik Lamela and Joel Campbell topping their wishlist.The Italian club’s transfer supremo, Piero Ausilio, is reportedly in the capital with millions to spend and wants Lamela, who has struggled to make an impact at Tottenham since signing from Roma in a deal worth up to £30m in August 2013.Spurs boss Maurico Pochettino is keen to hang on to his fellow Argentine, however, so it will take a massive cash offer to prise him away from White Hart Lane.Ausilio might have more joy at nearby Arsenal, where Campbell is not getting much of a look in under Arsene Wenger.Great things were expected of the forward after his stunning World Cup displays for Costa Rica last summer, but the 22-year-old has found opportunities hard to come by.Campbell is now behind Danny Welbeck, Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski, Yaya Sanogo and Alexis Sanchez in the pecking order at the Emirates so Wenger could well be persuaded to part company if Inter can come up with an offer he can not refuse. 1last_img read more

No time for outside activities

first_imgThey were 12-4, while the Patriots finished at 10-6. But New England has much more playoff experience and played a tougher, if not exceptionally challenging, schedule. That experience “helps a lot, but everyone in here knows the importance of this game,” Jacksonville defensive end Reggie Hayward said in his team’s locker room. “We understand that if we don’t win, we go home. Everyone has that sense of urgency.” Jaguars running back Fred Taylor thinks “there is an intensity change, but I think it’s a little bit hyped.” Byron Leftwich is set to start at quarterback for Jacksonville after missing the past six games with a broken ankle. For New England, linebacker Tedy Bruschi is “fine,” Belichick said, but is listed as questionable with a left calf injury that kept him out of last Sunday’s game against Miami. Bruschi worked out on the practice field with his teammates Tuesday and Wednesday. Afterward, Belichick did more planning. Watching Wednesday night’s Rose Bowl between USC and Texas, the nation’s top two college teams, wasn’t on his agenda. “Most of the college games that I’d watch are in the spring, in the college scouting process,” he said. “I don’t think I’ll be spending a lot of time watching that one.” His focus on Jacksonville extended to finding ways to motivate his team. He picked up on a theme sounded Tuesday by quarterback Tom Brady that the Patriots haven’t gotten the respect they deserve. “I agree with Tom, sure,” Belichick said. “I’m not really losing too much sleep over it. It doesn’t really matter what anybody else thinks about our team.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! They had plenty to cram in, because they’ve met just five times. Two of those games were in the playoffs and the last time they faced each other was Dec. 14, 2003. “I’m working hard. I’m staying late,” said tight end Christian Fauria, a two-time champion after reaching the playoffs just once in seven seasons with Seattle. “I told my wife, `Listen, don’t expect me home till later than usual.’ She’s like, `OK, I kind of know how it is now.”‘ Several Patriots said they don’t change their routines from the regular season. But Monty Beisel, in his first season with them after four years with Kansas City, notices a difference. Linebacker Larry Izzo made it clear there’s much more at stake than in the regular season. “Izzo’s calling guys on Monday saying, `Where are you at? I’m in the weight room early Monday morning. It’s playoff. Let’s go.”‘ Beisel said. “So there’s definitely an air of excitement.” That atmosphere stretches down to northern Florida where the Jaguars are preparing to play on the road as the biggest of the four underdogs in this weekend’s wild-card playoff games. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Bill Belichick wasn’t going to waste time watching the Rose Bowl. One player told his wife he’d be coming home late. The Patriots are in the playoffs and preparation time is precious. center_img “I don’t think this is the time to go sledding, go out and take on a lot of new projects and model airplanes and all of that,” Belichick said Wednesday. He’s coaching a team trying to become the first to win three consecutive Super Bowls, and the playoff path starts Saturday night when New England hosts the Jacksonville Jaguars. Both ended their regular seasons last Sunday, so they have one less day than usual to get ready. last_img

LATEST Though he started the campaign in Lorient’s first-team, he was dropped from the squad towards the end of November after clashing with his manager in the dressing room at half-time of a 4-2 defeat at Valenciennes.Guendouzi came back into the side in February, and Lorient won five of the next eight games that the 19-year-old started, but after being dropped for the trip to Nimes on April 24, it was made clear Guendouzi will not play for the Ligue 2 side again. Capped at three youth levels by France, Guendouzi is currently training with the France squad ahead of the European Under-19 Championship, which kicks-off on July 16.

Miller pushes doping

first_imgSOELDEN, Austria — World Cup champion Bode Miller said Thursday that he will race in the Turin Olympics this winter, and also took another opportunity to campaign publicly for legalized doping in sports. The first U.S. man in 22 years to win the overall title, Miller said last season that he was considering retiring and skipping the Olympics because of time-consuming sponsorship obligations, annoying media duties and overwhelming fan attention. “I’m going to race as of now and I’ve made some progress in that area as far as deciding why and how I’m going to try and make it a positive thing for myself and everyone else,” Miller said at a media gathering on the eve of the men’s and women’s World Cup opening giant slalom races on the Rettenbach glacier. “I came out of the season really feeling pretty negative about the whole situation and the way I knew I’d be lumped in with other athletes. In the U.S., they have a really result-oriented, ‘Get as many golds as you can’ and ‘We have to get more golds that any other country’ (philosophy). It’s a really unhealthy attitude toward the Olympics and sport in general. It was really irritating for me to know I would be at the forefront of that whole advertising plan in the U.S. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “It was too much of a false representation and too much of a strain on my belief about sport and about the Olympics.” But a contract with footwear and apparel giant Nike changed his attitude. “We’ll be doing some pretty cool and unique positive commercials,” he said. “That was a big step because I needed a forum besides (the media) where I could feel I was making contact with the public and at least getting my ideas out there that although gold medals are great, the Olympics and the Olympic message are still as clear as ever. It’s about the struggle being the most important thing, as opposed to the triumph at the end or the gold.” Miller also reiterated his belief that doping should be allowed in sports — or that the tolerated levels for banned substances should be raised — saying current anti-doping policies do nothing to protect the health of athletes and does not level the playing field. “I feel it’s super hypocritical for a drug to be legal for you to buy, but not for an athlete to buy,” said Miller, a favorite for Sunday’s giant slalom. “Used in a way directed by a doctor or directed by the research that’s out there, even some drugs like EPO could potentially balance the risk of long term health problems against the potential gains for not injuring yourself. center_img “When I look at all these professional athletes when they are 50 or 45 years old, they have knees that don’t work at all, shoulders that don’t work, back problems, and I think that that’s a much more common occurrence than a guy who is 40 or 50 who has serious problems because of some steroid he was taking when he was 20.” The International Ski Federation said supports the fight against doping. “For us it’s very clear,” FIS general secretary Sarah Lewis said. “Our rules are established by experts whose main goal is to protect the health of athletes. They also make sure everyone respects the principle of fair play and the ethics of the sport. FIS supports the fight against doping 100 percent. “Miller is making more and more declarations on different topics. We aren’t going to react with any great force. Our rules are clear.” Miller said he has never used performance-enhancing drugs. “I don’t even use any creatine or vitamins or supplements or anything,” he said. “The point is that I don’t think it’s a really big deal. I think people should be able to do what they want to do.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
