Liberia Battles Spreading Ebola Epidemic

Liberia, Guinea On Track to Contain Ebola | Radio Show: ‘Reaching Out To The Motherland’ – 02.12.2015

By: Sara Goudarzi

The West African nations of Liberia and Guinea have achieved a goal of isolating at least 70 percent of people infected with Ebola, and safely burying at least 70 percent of the people who have died of the disease, according to the World Health Organization.

If the efforts to contain the spread of Ebola in these countries continue at the same level, both could stomp out this current outbreak within the next few months, said Gerardo Chowell-Puente, a mathematical epidemiologist at Arizona State University in Phoenix, who has studied the outbreak’s dynamics.

But this doesn’t mean people all over the world should relax their efforts. [ READ MORE ]

Liberia's government says teaching will now begin on 16 February

Ebola Crisis: Liberia Delays School Re-Opening

Liberia's government says teaching will now begin on 16 February

Liberia’s government says teaching will now begin on 16 February

From The BBC

Liberia has delayed planned re-opening of schools, saying they are not not yet fully prepared to prevent the spread of Ebola.

The schools – closed in July – had been due to open on Monday, but teaching will now begin on 16 February.

The BBC’s Mark Doyle says several schools he has seen are woefully unready to prevent Ebola infecton.

He says they are lacking chlorinated water for hand-washing and thermometers to check pupils don’t have fever.

Some schools were used as Ebola treatment offices or holding centres, our correspondent adds.

Liberia – alongside with its West African neighbours Sierra Leone and Guinea – has been hardest hit by the outbreak of the deadly virus.

In Liberia alone, more than 3,600 people have been killed.

However, Liberia appears to be beating Ebola, as there now only five confirmed cases across the country.

Inspiring book for parents, educators, anyone raising boys
By T. Kelly on June 22, 2009

I am impressed by the subject areas covered in this book and the caliber of the authors. This book is dedicated to President Obama for inspiring young African American males to “reach for the stars” and for showing them that it is possible for them to achieve greatness. The subject areas are pertinent to the world we live in. This book is inspiring, encouraging, and written by experts in their fields. I think this book should be read by anyone working with or raising boys. I think all school, public and college libraries should add this book to their collections.

By LaMar West on August 2, 2009

I started reading my friends chapter first, chapter 18. Great writing. I then moved to the beginning of the book, and could not put it down. This is a book geared toward all people, men, women, children, etc. I’m a slow reader, this was easy to follow and understand. I appreciated my friend Margaret for recommending this book to me. I share alot of the ideas, but sometime we need a pick me up to get back on track. The young African American male is our future, I have already put this on a gift list and recommended topics for youth discussions.

Raising African American Boys
By Amazon Customer on July 23, 2009

This is a timely and very needed guide to raising boys in an enviroment that can sometimes be very difficult. Many mothers of young boys without male role models should take time to read this book for insight and assistance with developing our young boys into responsible men. Thank you to all the contributors for this book, great job!
