Some of the student athletes at the seminarThe president of Liberia National Handball Association (LNHA), J. Mason Saweler, has called on athletes who underwent a three-day workshop for high school athletes in Gbarnga City, Bong County to put to use the knowledge they acquired from the training.Mr. Saweler told journalists that the training started was held January 16 thru 18, 2019 and was climaxed with few exhibition matches among athletes from the 10 schools that took part in the training.The association boss described the multitude of students that showed up for the game as surprising and that it showed how hungry those students are for the game. He called on them to take both their lessons and the game seriously.Terry Morgan headed the training aspect of the workshop and he described the performance of the 70 students from the 10 high schools as astounding. He urged them to take the training seriously if they wish to be counted among the best handball athletes nationally and internationally.Students from St. Martin’s Catholic, N. V. Massaquoi, St. Peter’s Episcopal, Muslim Youth Academy, and St. Mark’s Lutheran high schools were among the participants.Others were S. D. A, A. G. M, Dolokelen Gboveh, Alexander A. Andrew, and Bokalu Simi high schools.Morgan said physical education instructors from the 10 schools which students participated in the workshop were also trained by the rules governing handball so that they will continue to train students who have the passion for it.He said, “Because of the passion the students have for handball, we also trained PE instructors from each of the 10 schools that participated in the workshop about the rules of the sport and we call on the Ministry of Education to include the sport in its PE curriculum in their individual schools.”“Our reason for calling on PE instructors to include the sport in their individual school PE curriculum is because it would help to increase the athletes’ knowledge in the sport and promote the game in that part of the country,” he said.Morgan extended thanks to the National PTA Network which provided the sponsorship for the workshop.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
How U.S. Science Will Fare Under the New BudgetPresident Barack Obama on Tuesday released a $3.901 trillion budget request to Congress, including proposals for a host of federal research agencies. The unveiling is just the beginning of the annual budget process; Congress will now chew on the proposal and is likely to ignore many of the White House’s suggestions. Most research agencies are facing flat prospects, and there are few big winners.

The program converts simple images into sequences of sound: As people learn the sounds, they learn to “hear” images. The technology not only gives “sight” to the blind, but also challenges the way neurologists think the brain is organized.Do Flu Shots Cause Runny Noses?A new study finds that live flu vaccines may increase our susceptibility to bacterial infections. You should get them anyway: Not only do flu vaccines protect against influenza, but the study found that vaccination had no impact on bacterial infection in the lungs, just the nasal passages, explaining the occasional runny nose.In Academia, Women Collaborate Less With Their Same-Sex JuniorsA study of psychology departments finds that female full professors are less likely to co-author papers with lower ranking women.
