Dust Covers Campus, Community in Paynesville

first_imgAt least 820 students of the Ann Sandell Independent School, along the Police Academy Road in Paynesville, cannot return to classes today, as dust from the unpaved road has completely overtaken their campus and community.The 24-classroom building, which includes offices and reading rooms, has been clouded with dust making it very difficult for instructional activities to take place.Our reporter, who visited the community over the weekend, noticed that the dust in the area was produced from the Police Academy Road; which is yet to be paved by the government.The government started the road construction project since October last year.In an exclusive interview, the proprietress of the school, Leabeh Gbowee, said the school’s administration has decided to suspend classes indefinitely due to the situation.She said that the parents have been informed of the decision.According to her, the extreme dust on the campus started a weeks ago.“The dust in this area is being produced due to the deplorable road conditions of the Police Academy road. It is nearly impossible to run classes with this campus in such a condition. Therefore, we have concluded that students should remain at their homes until something can be done,” Ms. Gbowee explained. She said convening classes for the students could create a serious health hazard.“The dust is producing a serious cold for many of us living in this community. All of our cooking utensils and clothes need constant washing,” she said detailing her frustration.“We want the government to come quickly and find a solution to the problem to allow our students to return for school,” she added.Ms. Gbowee explained the school was established in 1994 to give education to less fortunate children in the community.“The school is an initiative of my family. We intend to help parents who cannot afford high tuition,” she stated.Henry Wehyee, a motorcyclist in Police Academy told this paper that the dust makes movement difficult for them and pedestrians.“We find it very hard to ride on this road because we can’t see ahead. Our passengers complain about the dust causing serious problem as they ride on the bikes,” he detailed.The proprietress of the M. Plaza Restaurant, Lucy Flomo, stated that that the dust has prevented people from visiting her establishment.“I am losing customers as a result of this problem,” she said angrily.     Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Title race question draws fury from Klopp in Munich

first_imgLiverpool are locked in a tense battle with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League and their fans on Merseyside are desperate for a first English league title for 29 years.An exasperated Klopp took offence when asked whether he felt defeat in Munich would hamper Liverpool in the title race or if victory could help them build momentum in the league.“I really don’t think that any other coach or manager in the world has to answer this question when he plays in the Champions League,” he fumed.“I really think that’s unique — that only happens if you are the Liverpool manager or if the pundits (asking) come from Manchester United.“We want to be focused on this game and even if it (defeat) would harm us, we couldn’t change it, the whole world will be watching this game tomorrow night.“On the other side, it (victory) will build momentum, yes, but only if we play good football.“This game has nothing to do with anything else.”Premier League pressure aside, Klopp knows his Liverpool side face a stern test against a Bayern side buoyed by going top in the Bundesliga at the weekend for the first time since September.Liverpool welcome back defender Virgil van Dijk, who was suspended for the first leg, but Naby Keita, who started the Anfield stalemate, is ruled out injured.Bayern have won their three league games comfortably since the first leg, posting crushing 5-1 and 6-0 victories over Moenchengladbach and Wolfsburg respectively.Klopp tasted victory in four of his nine games at the Allianz Arena as Borussia Dortmund coach from 2008-2015.He knows what to expect in Bayern’s backyard and called on the travelling Liverpool fans to lend their support.“I’d say to ours (fans), don’t hesitate — give it your all,” said Klopp.“We have to be ready from the first second and if we manage it, we’ll have deserved it.“What I know of facing Bayern is you have to be really brave on the ball, that’s what we have to do, we will get our moments, but it’s all about striking a balance.“Bayern defended in the first leg at a high level and they will not do that tomorrow, but it will not be easier for us.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Klopp gave an angry reply when asked how victory or defeat at Bayern Munich could impact Liverpool in the Premier League © AFP / Christof STACHEMUNICH, Germany, Mar 12 – Jurgen Klopp gave an angry response when asked how defeat or victory in the Champions League on Wednesday at Bayern Munich could impact Liverpool in the Premier League title race.After a goalless draw in the last-16 first leg at Anfield three weeks ago, a win or score draw in Munich in the return game would send Liverpool into the quarter-finals.last_img read more

Negotiating and Discounting Are Different

first_imgNegotiating and discounting are not the same thing.When you negotiate, both parties try to find a way to exchange value that gives each side what they need. The key factor here is that both sides are giving something to get something they require.NegotiationsYour customer may tell you that they need a lower price. You counter by offering to reduce your price in exchange for something that provides you with as much or more value than what you gave in a price concession. That might mean that you ask for a larger order to grant that pricing, payment in full and in advance of delivery, exclusivity in your category, or one of the countless other trades that might make a win-win deal.Both parties are giving something to the other party. That’s what makes it a negotiation.DiscountingDiscounting is different. When you discount, your prospective client asks for a lower price, and you make the price concession to acquire the prospect’s business. Your potential client doesn’t give anything additional in return.Much of the time when people say they need to learn how to negotiate, they mean they need to learn how to defend their pricing model to avoid discounting. They want to know how to justify the delta, the difference between their pricing and their competitor’s pricing.Discounting may be necessary to win a deal. But negotiating is helpful when it comes to winning at a price that allows you to execute and deliver to your clients. Essential Reading!
