first_imgTORONTO – The mayor of Toronto is recommending that a stadium be named after his infamous predecessor — the late Rob Ford.In a letter to council, John Tory calls for the renaming of a stadium at Centennial Park, in the city’s west end, to Rob Ford Memorial Stadium.Tory notes that Ford, who was a lifelong west-end resident, became known for his “unique approach to public service” after being elected to city council in November 2000 and he carried it on after being elected mayor in 2010.But he says Ford’s community involvement went well beyond politics, and his passion for football led him to found the Newtonbrook North Stars in 1999 and a highly successful football program at Don Bosco Catholic Secondary School in 2002. He also established the Rob Ford Football Foundation, a program that helps fund football programs in high schools across the city.Tory says it would be fitting, in light of Ford’s many years of work on football programs, to rename a football stadium to honour Ford, who died in March 2016 from a rare and aggressive form of cancer.Ford became a certified celebrity in light of his admitted crack cocaine use, alcohol abuse, lewd comments and at times outrageous behaviour that transformed his mayoral office into an unprecedented spectacle.Ford, whose clarion call was “time to stop the gravy train,” died at age 46, 18 months after a cancer diagnosis scuttled his bid for a second term as mayor, although he easily won election as a councillor in his west-end ward.Tory also is recommending council honour two other city council members who have died recently — deputy mayor Pam McConnell, and Coun. Ron Moeser.In consultation with the McConnell and Moeser families, Tory said he would convene panels of councillors and community members in order to determine suitable public properties that could be renamed in their memory.last_img read more

first_imgVANCOUVER – The Tsilhqot’in Nation has signed a first-of-its-kind agreement with the federal and British Columbia governments that recognizes the First Nation as a full partner in wildfire response.Through the agreement, the three governments will work together to identify best practices, define roles and build the First Nation community’s capacity to manage emergencies.Tl’etinqox Chief Joe Alphonse said he’d like to see a culturally-appropriate First Nations evacuation centre established, as well as a training facility.Alphonse’s community, which he said has 400 trained firefighters and understands fire response better than anyone, defied an evacuation order in 2017.Although wildfires encircled three quarters of his community, Alphonse said the flames posed less of a threat than the federal and provincial governments, which failed to acknowledge the First Nation’s jurisdiction and expertise.“Those fires this summer, they were never a threat to us — government officials were. A lot has got to change,” said Alphonse. “I think this is where it starts.”Alphonse said he doesn’t expect concrete changes in emergency response to be in place in time for the coming wildfire season, which is two months away. But he said he’s hopeful that the tripartite agreement will lay the groundwork for future change.Both the B.C. and Tsilhqot’in governments have yet to release reviews of the 2017 wildfire season, which was the worst in B.C. history and displaced tens of thousands of residents.Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould described the agreement as “truly historic.”“The result of this work will be a foundation for a new relationship that respects the jurisdiction of the Tsilhqot’in chiefs to protect their people, property and assets in an emergency,” Wilson-Raybould said.B.C. Indigenous Relations Minister Scott Fraser said he heard from several First Nations in the wake of the crisis that they did not feel they were treated as equal partners and experienced institutional racism in the government’s emergency response.“Those are hard truths for any government to face and hear. Government has work to do. There are lessons to be learned and they’re being learned,” Fraser said.He said the agreement is an important step toward reconciliation.last_img read more

The petitions are being considered by the Supreme Court today. One of the petitioners, the Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA), said that Article 70(1) of the Constitution of Sri Lanka read with Articles 33(2)(c) make it crystal clear that the President only has the power to dissolve Parliament once four years and six months have elapsed since the first sitting of the current Parliament, or if two thirds of Members of Parliament pass a resolution requesting dissolution. Since neither of these two conditions have been met, the President’s Proclamation is invalid.The Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution was enacted in 2015 on the basis of key promises made by President Sirisena and his coalition government to curb the powers of the Executive. Article 70 was one such provision and removed the President’s power to unilaterally dissolve Parliament. The Nineteenth Amendment was enacted to restore and introduce checks, balances and safeguards to prevent one arm of government from being able to halt or stifle the functioning of another. This is a fundamental feature of our democracy and President Sirisena’s actions represent a flagrant attempt by the Executive to suppress the functioning of Parliament. The legal position, together with the political impetus behind the Nineteenth Amendment, leaves no room for doubt that his present actions are legally, politically and morally invalid. The unilateral dissolution of Parliament and calling for elections in an unconstitutional manner only exacerbates the uncertainty of recent weeks when a myriad of issues, including the legality of the new Government President Sirisena has appointed, remain unresolved. In the immediate context, this has unnecessarily caused great uncertainty to Sri Lankans and put them at risk of potential political violence amid escalating turmoil. In broader context, it has been a reprehensible violation of the very principles of democratic accountability President Sirisena campaigned for and was elected on.On both these accounts, CPA calls on all Sri Lankans to stand firm against these blatant and dangerous abuses of power, and to demand and insist on their democratic rights and upholding of the Constitution of Sri Lanka. Twelve petitions were filed in the Supreme Court today against the dissolution of Parliament.The fundamental rights petitions were filed by some political parties and civil society. Elections Commission member Ratnajeevan Hoole was among those who filed petitions. read more

Doug Adler, the tennis commentator who lost his job over what many viewed as racist remarks against Venus Williams, says accusations that he is a bigot are “not true.”“It just makes me absolutely sick,” Adler says Friday, Aug. 25 on the “Today Show” of being called a racist online. “Never been a racist. Never looked at color. Have never even thought of that term until this whole situation.“It’s not true,” he added. “It couldn’t be further from the truth, and I don’t quite understand nor accept how something like that can happen to me.”Adler, a former professional tennis player, was scrutinized and ultimately terminated by ESPN for the way he described Williams’ approach in playing Stefanie Voegele during the Australian Open in January.“You see Venus move in and put the guerilla effect on,” Adler said. “Charging.”Many thought the commentator was comparing Williams to a gorilla and Adler clarified his remarks the day after the match. He did so again on “Today.”“Nothing to do with an animal,” he says. “Everything to do with tactics, strategy, how to win the point.”Venus Williams Has Her Own Legal Woes to Deal with:Fla.

He is now suing the sports network for wrongful termination.“They killed me,” he says. “They made me unemployable. They ended my career. They killed my reputation, my good name. What else was I supposed to do? To me, it was the easiest decision to make. I’m not going away.”ESPN, according to “Today,” is still unsure about which word Adler used in his commentary. The network denies all allegations in the suit and in a statement said, “Adler made an inappropriate reference to Venus Williams for which he felt no apology was necessary. We disagree and stand 100 percent behind our decision to remove him from the 2017 Australian Open.”Williams’ reps declined to give the morning news show a comment on their story. read more

Norway continues it’s winning streak on group B of this World Championship, and this time they beat Poland with great authority with a final score of 35-20 to book a spot in the eight finals. The team commanded from the bench by Thorir Hergeirsson competed with 14 players on the squad as Emilie Hegh Arntzen and Heidi Løke missed the match due to food poisining.The scandinavians are looking really good in this new championship, and so far, no team has been able to shake them off. This time, the rival was Poland. The coached by Leszek Krowicki didn’t have the best of starts and from beginning to end they failed to tame the powerful Norwegian squad that was determined to go for their third triumph.After the first 10 minutes the scoreboard was 7-4 and four minutes later the Polish team requested the first timeout. By this time Katrine Lunde had already saved 5 of 10 shots and was emerging as one of the best players on court. Norway was moving the ball fast from side to side, and always finding the gap in the Polish defense that was lacking a bit of intensity. By halftime, the difference reached +7: 18-11.It took Poland 5 minutes to score for the first time on the second half (20-12), but the problems kept on coming. By minute 14th, the goal difference was +13 for Norway, who was steamrolling their opponents (29-16). For the last half of the second period, Kari Alvik Grimsbø stepped on court and continued showed off as well. During those 15’ on court, she stopped 8 out of 12 shots received. The goalkeeping duo finished with an overwhelming 52% of saves, which help explain great part of Noway’s victory. The MVP award was for the Norwegian back Veronica Kristiansen, who was also top scorer of the match with 6 goals.With the absence of Heidi Løke, two of the players that shared minutes on court were Vilde Ingstad and Kari Brattset. The Vipers Kristiansand line player expressed her feelings after the match: “Our game plan was to go out and take out their shooters and to be together in defence to take fastbreaks, and I thing we managed to do that in big part of the game. I feel great about playing this many minutes”. When asked about the quality of the players ‘serving’ for her, she confessed: “It’s great to play with these players, Nora could play me in the blinds, they all have great quality and it’s easy to play with them”.On Thursday, the only unbeaten team in the group will face Czech Republic at 20:30hs, while Poland will face Hungary in a match that could be decisive for the future of both teams in the competition as they both arrive to this 4th round with two loses. ← Previous Story Sweden beats Czech Republic and gets closer to Leipzig Next Story → GERMANY 2017 – DAY 6: Dutch girls against Serbia, Denmark VS Brazil Kari BrattsetKatrine LundeNorwayPolandVeronica Kristiansen read more

first_img Jun 20th 2018, 3:45 PM Short URL 11 Comments 15,413 Views SEVERE WEATHER CONDITIONS earlier this year contributed to an increased in mortgage arrears levels, according to the Central Bank, because people were unable to get to their bank branches to hand over their monthly payments.Statistics for the first quarter of this year reveal 71,833 principal dwellings were in arrears at the end of March. That is an increase of 316 accounts over the quarter. The Central Bank said the increase compared with the end of December figures is “due to ‘Storm Emma’ impacting people being able to make payments at their branch”.The number of principal dwelling houses in arrears over 90 days continued to decline, as well as the number of accounts in arrears over 720 days, though these accounts now constitute 41% of all accounts in arrears and 90% of balances outstanding (around €2.6 billion).There are also 22,545 buy-to-let properties in arrears, a decrease of 3.2% on December’s figures.During the first quarter of this year, legal proceedings were issued on 828 primary dwelling house accounts. In 252 accounts, the courts granted an order for possession or sale of the property.There were 1,658 properties in the lenders’ possession on 1 January and a total of 321 properties were taken into possession by lenders up to the end of March. The majority of these were voluntarily surrendered or abandoned. The remainder, 62, were repossessed on foot of a court order.During the quarter 174 properties were sold on by lenders. At the end of March they had 1,802 properties that had been either repossessed, abandoned or surrendered.More than 117,000 primary dwelling house accounts were categorised as restructured at the end of March, a reduction of 1,519 accounts compared to December.The majority (86%) of these accounts were deemed to be meeting the terms of the arrangement and 78% of them were not in arrears at the end of the quarter.

Because time is irrefutable.”Avengers: Endgame is in cinemas now. How to watch every Marvel Cinematic Universe film in the right order Heroes having the time of their lives. Video screenshot by Bonnie Burton/CNET The time travel aspect of Avengers: Endgame made perfect sense to some, and very little to science.The 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe wrapped up the events of the previous film Infinity War, in which half the main heroes were turned to dust. In order to remedy that, the remaining heroes had to go to extreme lengths. Spoiler alert: this involves time travel.Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who also wrote the three Captain America films to name a few, spoke to The New York Times about how their use of time travel in Endgame works. They referenced Ant-Man in their explanation for employing the story-telling technique.Warning: spoilers ahead.”We all sat there going, really? We’re going to do time travel?” Markus said. “It was only when we were looking at who we had available, character-wise; we hadn’t used Ant-Man yet. And there really is, in people’s theory of the Quantum Realm, a time thing in the MCU, right now, available to us, with a character we haven’t used yet. We have a loophole that’s not cheating.”They also explored why previous time travel films didn’t get the concept right. “We looked at a lot of time-travel stories and went, it doesn’t work that way,” Markus said.”It was by necessity,” McFeely said. “If you have six MacGuffins and every time you go back it changes something, you’ve got Biff’s casino, exponentially. So we just couldn’t do that.

first_img Right away, last night’s Riverdale let us know we were in for something different. Rather than Jughead’s usual narration, we got a text scroll straight out of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It even includes the line about the events being more tragic because the victims were young. Still, nobody actually dies in this one. Riverdale’s showrunner really doesn’t want to turn this season into a slasher movie, even as it borrows its visual elements and story structure from them. The title of the episode, “Tales from the Darkside,” is more of an indication of what the episode actually is. Named for George A. Romero’s ’80s horror anthology series (which is definitely worth a watch, if you haven’t seen it), the episode tells three suspenseful stories taking place over the same couple nights. Each story, like the ones in Romero’s series, ends with some kind of twist.With more episodes to work with this season, Riverdale is free to be a little more experimental with the stories it tells. As much as we want to know who the Black Hood is, the stalling tactic employed by this episode is necessary. It gives the mystery some room to breathe and build suspense. It lets us spend some time in the town of Riverdale and see how the events of this season have affected it. It also gives Riverdale the time to explore its own influences and give them a loving homage. I love when this show takes a break from the high-speed insanity of its main plot to indulge in its (also insane) love for its influences. Season one had that out-of-nowhere Dark Betty turn that immediately made most viewers think of Twin Peaks. Now, season two has its teen drama dressed like its favorite horror anthology classic.Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones and Tony Todd as Farmer McGinty (Photo: Jack Rowand © 2017 The CW Network)The episode begins with some brief set-up explaining why we won’t see much of the Black Hood this week. He’s testing Riverdale. If the town can go without sinning for 48 hours, he won’t kill anyone anymore. Spoiler: It can’t. The rest of the episode follows three pairs of kids as the navigate those 48 hours. Though it looks like Betty and Jughead are back together, they both have their own worries going on. Betty is trying to figure out who the Black Hood is, and Jughead is dealing with the aftermath of Archie’s deal with the Ghoulies. They go separate ways and the stories begin. First, Archie and Jughead. Jughead gets a call from Penny Peabody, the Serpent lawyer his dad told him to stay away from. That turns out to be real good advice, although Jughead doesn’t realize that until it’s too late. She tells him his dad got beat up by some Ghoulies after Archie’s stunt last episode. She needs money to speed his case up and get him out of jail. To get that money, she hires Jughead to run a crate of “pancake mix” over to Greendale.This segment features a truly amazing guest star. Jughead enlists Archie to drive him to Greendale and, of course, they get a flat tire. The trip is seemingly rescued by the sudden appearance of horror icon Tony Todd. Yes, it’s the Candyman himself! (Or Death’s exposition guy, if you prefer the Final Destination series.) After two straight weeks of playing to musical theatre kids, it’s nice to see the show throwing a bone to horror movie buffs. Todd is terrific in this episode, bringing to it all the gravitas and danger he brings to his horror movies. He takes Jughead and his crate to a diner, where he tries to stick the kid with the bill and steal the “pancake mix.” Fortunately, Archie saves the day as only he can, and the two boys make the dropoff. Only to find out that Jughead’s been set up. That’s the twist of this story. Jughead’s dad wasn’t hurt. Penny forced him to be the new Jingle Jangle delivery boy. And he’s going to keep doing it or she’ll sell him out to the cops. Should have listened to your dad, Jughead. Knowing this show, the deliveries won’t last long before it all blows up in Jughead’s face. The only thing we can be certain about is that we can’t possibly predict how.Ashleigh Murray as Josie McCoy, Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, and Jordan Calloway as Chuck Clayton (Photo: Shane Harvey © 2017 The CW Network)Jughead and Archie’s story may have had a horror movie star in it, but Josie’s story was the most like a horror movie. And it had the best twist. Thinking back on it while writing this, it’s impressive how well it was set up. The foreshadowing was subtle enough that it was possible to guess what was going to happen, but it still came as a huge surprise. At first glance, Josie and Cheryl look like normal friends, but then you realize how clingy Cheryl’s being. But hey, Josie did save her from a sexual assault. It’s natural she’d want to be around a friend who makes her feel safe. Then you realize it’s a little suspicious that the music agent Cheryl hooked Josie up with doesn’t want the pussycats involved. And Cheryl is doing everything she can to make sure Josie doesn’t trust the apparently reformed Chuck Clayton.Josie’s story revolves around her having a stalker, and it’s legit scary. She’s getting strange notes that grow increasingly possessive. Finally, she receives a drawing of herself along with a real pig’s heart. Cheryl is sure Chuck is the culprit and the episode really wants us to think it’s the janitor who listens to Josie practice after the school closes. It’s neither. Cheryl is the one who’s stalking Josie. Suddenly, everything falls into place. She’s separating Josie from her band and from any potential dates. No one else is allowed to be Josie’s friend. It really shouldn’t be a surprise that Cheryl is super creepy at this point, but Riverdale keeps finding ways to make it one. If Archie and Jughead’s story showed how geeky and knowing this show can be, Josie’s reminded us that it can be truly creepy when it wants to.Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper and Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones (Photo: Jack Rowand © 2017 The CW Network)Finally, there was Betty and Veronica’s story, which largely served to tell you that your Black Hood fan theories are probably wrong. After the Black Hood killed the Sugarman at the end of the last episode, Betty starts thinking Sheriff Keller is the Black Hood. And hey, Kevin mentions that he has been acting awful strange lately. Veronica, on the other hand, thinks the Sheriff is having an affair and the two set about finding out what’s really going on. For a little bit, it looks like Betty might be right. The Sheriff is working out late into the night, going out in the wee hours of the morning, and the next day, a Jingle Jangle addict turns up dead. Then there’s his evidence room, which looks like the den of a serial killer… or a cop trying to catch one. Yes, just like you, Betty has plenty of circumstantial evidence supporting her theory, but it’s completely wrong. This is the show telling you to be patient. You’ll learn the identity of the Black Hood soon, but maybe cool it with the wild accusations. Because they’re wrong. Your theories are wrong. The only person who’s right is the one assuming things aren’t as they appear: Veronica. Sheriff Keller is having an affair. The twist is who with. He’s sleeping with Mayor McCoy. That certainly paints the scene after the pig’s heart incident in a different light.Riverdale broke from its usual format last night to experiment with the kinds of stories it can tell. Even with this break from the norm, it was still the crazy, soapy Riverdale we know and love. It’s a reminder that this show is always capable of more than it lets on. It uses its teen drama base to tell stories across multiple genres, and proudly displays its influences. Last night, the series used its three-story format to showcase everything it does well: bonkers fast-paced storytelling, Lynchian horror and convoluted mystery, all with the perfect amount of self-awareness. Is it any wonder we love this show so much? Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

We can take a step in this direction by putting an end to plastic pollution,” Banerjee tweeted on Sunday morning.Earth Day 2018 is dedicated to providing the information and inspiration needed to change human attitude and behaviour about plastics fundamentally. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsOne of the bleakest stories of the year so far was the report of a six-ton sperm whale washing up on the shores of southern Spain with 64 pounds of plastic in its stomach, a disturbing sign of the alarming rate at which we’re dumping plastics into the ocean.The plastic crisis is a truly global one, and the numbers are staggering: A 2015 study found that between 4.8 and 12.7 million metric tons of plastic make it into the ocean from land each year. By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by weight.Since plastic is synthetic, few natural processes break it down, allowing bags, straws, and packaging to linger for decades if not centuries. And we’re not very good at containing it to landfills. About 32 percent of plastics make out into nature, where it often ends up in the bellies of fish, birds, and whales. And, as it turns out, potentially in our stomachs too.last_img read more

first_imgMarch 30, 2016 Enroll Now for Free This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Taiwan’s Foxconn agreed to acquire Japan’s Sharp Corp. at a big discount to its original offer, capping a month of wrangling that sowed more doubt over whether the two companies can work well together and fend off fierce competition from rivals.Foxconn, formally known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., will pay about $3.5 billion for a two-thirds stake, cutting its initial offer by nearly $900 million following the emergence of previously undisclosed liabilities at Sharp.The deal marks the largest acquisition by a foreign company in Japan’s insular tech industry and the end of independence for a 100-year-old company that started out making belt buckles and mechanical pencils.It also gives the world’s top electronics contract manufacturer control of Sharp’s advanced screen technology which it does not have, and helps strengthen its pricing power with major client Apple Inc.Under the revised terms, Foxconn will pay 88 yen per Sharp share, the companies said in a statement, a 35 percent discount to Wednesday’s close and likely reflecting in part Chinese obsession with the lucky number eight.Foxconn has also agreed to buy all 200 billion yen ($1.7 billion) worth of preferred shares owned by Sharp’s two main creditor banks, a source familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.It also has the option of increasing its stake in Sharp next year.The firms had been on the verge of finalizing terms last month when contingent liabilities at Sharp were suddenly revealed, causing Foxconn to hit the pause button on the deal.That revived ill will from four years ago, when Foxconn agreed to take a stake in Sharp as part of a broader partnership. Sharp then warned of losses and Foxconn walked away as shares in the Japanese firm sank.Analysts said that even without the history of distrust, there was little assurance the combination will be able to deflect pricing pressure in LCDs or beat rivals in OLED, a new screen technology which Apple is expected to adopt for its iPhones by 2018.”If you are talking about two years, it will be difficult. Three years, there is potential. Five years, then definitely,” said Kylie Huang, analyst with Daiwa-Cathay Capital Markets in Taipei.She added that Samsung Electronics’ display unit and LG Displaywill for some time likely remain the preferred choice for OLED or organic light-emitting diode screens which are thinner, lighter and more flexible than other displays.Shares in Sharp rose 4 percent on Wednesday ahead of the announcement. Foxconn shares will resume trade on Thursday after being suspended for the day.Analysts also said Foxconn, which reported record net profit for last year, was taking on a significant financial risk, even though it had driven down the price of its offer.Highlighting Sharp’s dire finances, the ailing display maker estimated an operating loss of around 170 billion yen for the year through Thursday in contrast to its earlier profit forecast of 10 billion yen.Sharp and other Japanese electronics firms have struggled against more nimble Asian rivals, with brands that were once synonymous with cutting-edge technology, such as Sony Corp., losing their cachet among global consumers.Industry analysts trace Sharp’s decline back to a decade ago, when the company began spending hundreds of billions of yen to expand LCD manufacturing facilities. It then failed to innovate enough, lost ground to LCD rivals and was unable to engineer a turnaround despite two bank-led bailouts since 2012.The Yomiuri newspaper reported on Wednesday that Foxconn was planning to overhaul Sharp’s management including replacing its CEO.Sharp has said Foxconn is set to pick a majority of its board. But investors had expected most of management to remain in place for some time. Sources said earlier this year that Foxconn Chief Executive Terry Gou had offered to keep most of top management in place, and to not fire employees.Foxconn executives in Taipei declined to comment on plans for Sharp CEO Kozo Takahashi, saying more details would be available at a signing event and news conference on Saturday.(Additional reporting by Hirotoshi Sugiyama and Chang-Ran Kim; Writing by Ritsuko Ando; Editing by Edwina Gibbs) Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now 4 min read This story originally appeared on Reuterslast_img read more

first_imgFREETOWN, Sierra Leone — The dreaded Ebola virus came to the children’s hospital in the form of a 4-year-old boy.His diagnosis became clear three days after he was admitted. The Ola During hospital — the nation’s only pediatric center — was forced to close its steel gates. Fear swelled. The boy died. The 30 doctors and nurses who had contact with him were placed in quarantine, forced to nervously wait out the 21 days it can take for the virus to emerge. And remaining staff so far have refused to return to work. They, along with millions of others, are facing the worst Ebola outbreak in history. Already, the hardest-hit West African nations of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone have reported more than 3,000 cases, including the infections of 240 health-care workers.Ebola is now spreading from the remote provinces and into the teeming cities such as Freetown, where 1.2 million people jostle for space. Previous outbreaks had been limited to remote villages, where containment was aided by geography. The thought of Ebola taking hold in a major city such as Freetown or Monrovia, Liberia’s capital, is a virological nightmare. Last week, the World Health Organization warned that the number of cases could hit 20,000 in West Africa.“We have never had this kind of experience with Ebola before,” David Nabarro, coordinator of the new U.N. Ebola effort, said as he toured Freetown last week. “When it gets into the cities, then it takes on another dimension.”The hemorrhagic fever has no cure. Odds of survival stand at about 50-50. Detection is difficult because early symptoms are hard to distinguish from those of malaria or typhoid, common ailments during the rainy season. While Ebola is not transmitted through the air like the flu, it does spread by close contact with bodily fluids such as blood, saliva and sweat — even something as innocent as a tainted tear.Now it is headed to Freetown, where the streets hum with low-level panic. People long ago stopped shaking hands. Hugs are unheard of. Plastic buckets filled with a diluted chlorine solution are posted outside many businesses to encourage hand-washing. Some of these homemade solutions tingle and burn; others smell like aromatic cleansers. For a while, street peddlers, who normally sell peanuts or umbrellas from stacks balanced on their hands, sold surgical gloves, $1 each.But the roads are still crammed with autos and people, stray dogs and wild chickens. Trucks with loudspeakers rumble down rutted roads.”Wash your hands!” they announce in Krio. “Ebola is real!” shout banners strung throughout the city. Radio ads detail the virus’ symptoms: headache, fever, nausea and vomiting. The government of Sierra Leone has been running these messages in the capital for months, just in case. Ernest Bai Koroma, president of Sierra Leone, leaves the State House in Freetown after an Aug. 15, 2014 press conference in which he outlined the challenges of containing the country’s Ebola outbreak and the lack of resources to deal with it. Photo for The Washington Post by Pete Muller/PrimeSierra Leone’s first case appeared in late May, in the distant Kailahun district. A month later, the country had 158 total cases. In late July, it was up to 533 cases. A national state of emergency was declared. Soldiers erected roadblocks to cordon off the rural epicenter, raising memories of the country’s brutal civil war, which ended in 2002. Residents were ordered to stay at home for one day of prayer and reflection. An evangelist texted tens of thousands of people before dawn one morning, telling them to douse themselves in saltwater for protection from Ebola. People rushed into the streets, singing and washing.“It looked like panic,” said Killian Doherty, an Irish architect living in Freetown. “It’s the kind of thing that makes you lose your bearings.”The government has passed laws to limit close contact, altering the city’s daily rhythms. Riders in the city’s many “Poda Poda” minibuses, usually packed shoulder to shoulder, are now curtailed to four people per row. “Okara” taxi motorbikes are restricted at night. Even banks have cut hours to limit time spent in their crowded lobbies. And large public gatherings have been outlawed. The small cinemas where patrons would pay to watch foreign soccer matches on TVs have been shuttered. The popular clubs along Freetown’s Atlantic Ocean beaches are now empty.Recently, a group of 12 men sat on benches under palm trees along Lumley Beach. Technically, this was illegal. The men all knew about Ebola, even reciting how the virus got its name from a Congolese river near where the first outbreak was discovered in 1976. Still, they didn’t know what to think of this strange disease. This country, where doctors are few and over half the population lives in poverty, knows plenty about malaria and cholera and even Lassa fever, a more forgiving hemorrhagic fever spread by rats. But Ebola was new to Sierra Leone.“I don’t believe 100 percent that Ebola is real,” said Moses Sensie, 32, who works in security for a construction company. The movies he has seen about the virus show victims bleeding out in the disease’s last stages. He hasn’t heard about that happening now, and experts acknowledge hemorrhages in this outbreak have been rare. “I believe in Ebola maybe 60 percent.”But Anthony Jimmy, 30, was not taking chances. He times his commute to work on the Poda Podas so they are less crowded. He avoids people who look ill. But, he said, the worry was exhausting.“People are fed up with the situation,” Jimmy said.Many of the people who can afford to leave Freetown are gone — some on vacation, others to foreign countries to wait out the virus. But getting out has become harder as several airlines have stopped flying to Lungi International Airport. Air France, under orders from the French government, became the latest last week. The nation’s school year is supposed to begin Sept. 9, but few expect that date to hold.At the Lighthouse Hotel, the usual executives from the mining, pharmaceutical and banking industries are absent. The hotel is running at 15 percent occupancy, said general manager Andrew Damoah. He is barely able to cover the cost of gas for the hotel’s generator — a necessity in a country with a shaky power grid. Most of his guests now are the international doctors and nurses responding to the outbreak.“We are all running empty hotels,” Damoah said.The city’s hospitals are empty, too. People avoid them over worries about catching Ebola. They would rather suffer at home and hope that what they have is just a mild case of malaria. It is not an unreasonable concern. The Kenema government hospital in the provinces has seen 40 staff members die of Ebola. At Connaught Hospital in Freetown, the doctor running the Ebola ward died two weeks ago. Shortly before that, the government issued a public alert for a 32-year-old hairdresser with an Ebola diagnosis who was pulled from Connaught by her family. They wanted her to be treated by a faith healer. All of them subsequently died of Ebola.“Everyone is scared. Even I am scared,” said Michael Karoma, a gynecologist who heads Prince Christian Maternity Hospital in Freetown, where is he working to restore the confidence of his staff and the public. “Everyone is afraid of Ebola. This used to be in the villages. Now it is in the cities. What is happening in the world?”Recommended: Costa Rica-based US relief workers join efforts in West Africa to combat ebola A government health worker in Sierra Leone on Aug. 16, 2014 keeps tally of people going through an Ebola checkpoint on the road between Freetown and Kenema. Photo for The Washington Post by Pete Muller/PrimeConnaught Hospital, the city’s main health-care center, is in Freetown’s historic heart, not far from the massive cotton tree featured on Sierra Leone’s paper money. The hospital’s small Ebola isolation ward is part of the nation’s triage system. Patients suspected of having Ebola wait for lab results before being shipped to the country’s only two treatment centers, a facility in Kailahun run by the aid group Doctors Without Borders and the government hospital in Kenema.At Connaught, the Ebola ward sits behind a gate with prison-like metal bars. Staff members are covered head to toe in protective scrubs. The unit recently had 12 beds for 13 patients. At first, one or two patients were being diagnosed with Ebola each day. That picked up to three a day. Now, lab results on up to seven people a day are coming back positive.The virus’ march into Freetown was slow to start. The first case officially emerged in mid-July. Six weeks later, the city had 30. The number is now over 40 and is expected to quickly shoot up.The Ebola ward at Connaught is now run by Marta Lado, a Spanish doctor who arrived in March. A high-level delegation of World Health Organization officials visited her last week. Nabarro, the United Nations’ new Ebola point man, wanted to know what she needed.“If you could get anything,” he asked her, “what would it be?”Lado stood in her sweat-stained blue scrubs and thought.More people and supplies, she said. “The health-care workers are really scared. This is hard work. We can’t tell them we don’t have enough supplies — to just come to work and later on you’ll have gloves.”They go through 200 disposable gloves a day in the isolation room. They had enough for now, but the supply was running short.This wasn’t a problem just at Connaught. Doctors Without Borders has warned about a worldwide shortage of the full-body protective suits worn by Ebola health-care workers. Sierra Leone’s Ebola emergency operations center said it faces a six-week wait for the specialized ambulances needed to transport Ebola patients.A new Ebola treatment center — the country’s third — is expected to be constructed near Freetown. But it might not be ready for a month. Just outside Freetown in Lakka, a new Ebola isolation unit is almost open, on property shared by a tuberculosis hospital and housing for sufferers of leprosy. A mobile Ebola testing lab, flown in from South Africa, also just started up. Health workers in Sierra Leone such as these men, seen Aug. 18, 2014 on the road between Freetown and Kenema, have set up checkpoints to screen travelers for fever and other signs of Ebola. Photo for The Washington Post by Pete Muller/PrimeOutside the Ebola facility in Lakka, a single Sierra Leonean soldier stood guard, rifle slung over his shoulder. Balla Conteh, 35, did not like his new posting. His younger sister is being treated for Ebola in Kailahun. His 4-month-old niece died of the disease.“It is real. It is very real. And it is killing people,” Conteh said. “It’s a very, very scary disease.”That fear might explain how the young boy suffering from Ebola was admitted to Ola During Children’s Hospital.The boy showed up at the hospital with his father, doctors recall. The child had a fever. He was vomiting and had diarrhea. These were textbook signs of Ebola. But 80 percent of pediatric patients here have similar complaints, usually pointing to malaria or a severe stomach bug, doctors say. They further screened the boy for the virus by asking his father some questions. Any travels? Any funerals? No, no, he said.The boy was taken to a general ward inside the cramped hospital, which overlooks Destruction Bay on the city’s east end. The hospital’s open windows were covered by sheets to block out the sun and the smell of burning trash. A sign painted in red by the hospital entrance read, “Water from the well in the hospital compound is unsafe for drinking.”Two days later, the boy’s gums started to bleed. He was transferred to the hospital’s isolation ward. A day later, his lab tests came back. He had Ebola. Doctors delivered the news to the boy’s stepmother and asked again about his travels. The stepmother said the boy had attended his grandmother’s funeral in the provinces.The father had lied to us, said Sara Hommel, a German pediatrician with a foreign aid group, clearly upset.She couldn’t understand it. Other doctors, too, have complained about patients not being forthcoming about possible exposure to Ebola. But facing a disease with no cure, perhaps the father and others were afraid to admit the truth.The hospital had remained closed for several days as the remaining hospital staff members demanded to be taught the infection-control measures considered essential to guarding against this unforgiving virus. “We are not going to rush back to work,” a hospital administrator said. “We want to be protected.”The wait dragged on. Hommel and another German doctor, Noa Freudenthal, wondered how many cases of malaria or typhoid were going untreated. Ola During once had been filled with 250 patients. Where were these sick children now? Recently, a charity hospital tried to deliver a 2-year-old child suffering from cerebral malaria to the children’s hospital but was turned away. The gates were closed.And then, one day last week, an infectious disease specialist from the University of California at San Francisco walked into Ola During. Dan Kelly conducted days of training, teaching staff members how to sanitize the floors and how to put on and remove the personal protective gear.“Fear of Ebola is just permeating everything right now,” Kelly said.He hoped maybe the training might instill a little confidence.In the coming days, the children’s hospital is expected to reopen its metal gates.The only question is whether patients will be too scared to come.© 2014, The Washington Post Facebook Comments Related posts:First Ebola patient diagnosed in US dies from virus Storyline: Ebola is actually difficult to get ‘It’s despair on all fronts,’ says Ebola aid worker UN confronts deadly Ebola epidemiclast_img read more
