NPA Comptroller Urges Liberians to Preserve Peace

first_imgThe Comptroller of the National Port Authority, Madam Christiana Paeley,  has called on all Liberians to work tirelessly in preserving the peace the country is enjoying today.She made the call over the weekend following the Golden Image Award Women’s Forum held at the Liberia Crusaders for Peace headquarters in Monrovia, proxying for the NPA Managing Director,  Madam Matilda Parker.According to NPA Comptroller “It has taken us decades to reach thus far as Liberia as Nation was built some 166 years ago. Today Liberia needs critical attention and care. The peace we are enjoying today has cost many lost of lives and a breakdown of our societal values,” Mrs. Paeley noted.She further stated that if Liberians don’t make good choices and take responsibility for their actions the peace will be lost.  She, therefore, urged  everyone that they must learn respect for themselves and others, tolerance pursuit of education, making business and pursuing vocational and technical training.“The young generation of women will have to learn to make sacrifices and make the right choices for the growth of themselves,  which will translate to Liberia’s development and the preservation of the peace. You all bear witness that during the civil conflict, while the unarmed men were hiding in the ceilings, under the beds or in the deep forest, the women of Liberia were out doors finding food for our families, moving from one country to the other calling on Nations to help and demanding the leaders of the warring factions to end the war.  There were instances when you women had to fast and pray, sleep on benches and undergo  hardships that we can neither describe nor mention here.  But one thing is clear: Liberia is at peace.”Madam Paeley used the occasion to warn especially the young generation of women to choose not to make merry and live in the fantasy of luxuries at the expense of working hard for education, career,  business and vocational training.She urged the young girls and women not to follow after material things and night clubs.“Those who for get the past, are bound to repeat it,” she stressed as she cautioned the young people not to repeat the mistakes of the past.Several women peace groups attended the forum and explained their stories of how they contributed towards the peace that Liberia enjoys today.  Women who told some interesting stories were awarded certificates.Among the groups that participating in the program were WIPNET, Women against Crime, Rural Women, Liberia Marketing Association, National Traditional Council, Travel and See among others.Cultural Ambassador Juli Endee, who is the executive director of Crusaders for Peace, said that the activity is part of the Golden Image Award Celebration remembering those who have helped Liberia to reach thus far.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Honda Acura recall 11M cars over Takata airbags for a second time

2019 Acura NSX review: Hitting its stride Tags If at first you don’t succeed, recall ’em again.Honda has issued a recall for approximately 1.1 million Honda and Acura vehicles. The list is positively huge, spanning a wide variety of cars both new and old, in varying body styles. The full list can be seen at the bottom of this article.The issue stems from the airbags. All the vehicles mentioned in this recall were part of an earlier wave of Takata airbag inflator replacements. These vehicles were repaired with desiccated Takata inflators that were not subject to recall. Those replacements, however, were eventually deemed faulty as well, after Honda received a report of a person being injured by shrapnel from a replacement inflator. Enlarge ImageIf you’re not sure if your call falls under the recall or not, give your dealer a ring — they can help you out. Honda Thankfully, a remedy can be had quickly. Honda has replacement parts at the ready — this time, from alternative sources — so owners need only head to the dealership, where technicians will swap out the faulty parts. To give you an idea of the Takata scandal’s scope, Honda alone has had to deal with 21 million recalled Takata inflators across 12.9 million Honda and Acura vehicles.The desiccant, or moisture-absorbing material, is central to understanding this deadly defect. The first batch of airbag inflators that spurred the recall used ammonium nitrate to inflate the airbag but lacked a desiccant. Over time, exposure to humidity could cause the inflator to fail, shooting out shrapnel instead of inflating the airbag as intended. There have been both deaths and injuries linked to these parts, which Takata sold to a significant number of automakers. Takata offered replacement parts with desiccants, but that clearly did not resolve the issue in its entirety. Thankfully, these new replacement parts come from different suppliers altogether.Here’s the full list of vehicles included in this latest recall:2002-2003 Acura 3.2TL2003 Acura 3.2CL2004-2006, 2009-2014 Acura TL2013-2016 Acura ILX2003-2006 Acura MDX2007-2016 Acura RDX2010-2013 Acura ZDX2001-2007, 2009 Honda Accord2001-2005 Honda Civic2002-2007, 2010-2011 Honda CR-V2003-2011 Honda Element2007 Honda Fit2002-2004 Honda Odyssey2003-2008 Honda Pilot2006-2014 Honda Ridgeline Originally published March 12 at 7:42 a.m. PT.Update, at 1:54 p.m. PT: Clarified the underlying issue with Takata’s airbag inflators.
