‘U.S. Gives Hope in Ebola Fight’

first_imgThe United States of America has given hope to the Liberian people in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus in Liberia and the world, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alex Tyler, has declared.In his remarks Monday during the official opening of the newly constructed Ebola Treatment Unit in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, Speaker Tyler said he was thankful to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Vice President Joseph N. Boakai for the extraordinary leadership they continue to demonstrate in Liberia.Expressing thanks to the people of the United States of America and other international partners, Speaker Tyler said, “The United States Government has given hope to the people of Liberia through the enormous assistance provided.“A few months ago, we had people coming down with the deadly Ebola virus in our county, and we had no place to take our suffering people. You have given us hope just in case the county experiences a further outbreak.”The Speaker noted that the county’s residents are continuing to observe the guidelines prescribed by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare to prevent the spread of the deadly Ebola virus.   He expressed the hope that Liberia will be free of the epidemic in the very near future.   Speaker Tyler expressed thanks and appreciation to members of the Armed Forces of Liberia, the U.S. security forces, partners in the fight against Ebola, chiefs and elders of the county for their support in the fight against Ebola.  He called on all Bomi residents to continue in the fight to ensure that Bomi is free of the disease.Also speaking during the occasion, the Head of the Incidence Management Team, Minister Tolbert Nyenswah, described the ETU as a milestone for the county and Liberia in the fight against the deadly disease.More Ebola Treatment Units are to be constructed around the country, including Sinje, in Grand Cape Mount, Ganta, Nimba and Buchanan, Grand Bassa, in support of the fight against the epidemic, he said.Minister Nyenswah emphasized that Liberia continues to experience a considerable reduction of Ebola cases but called on Liberians to be even more robust in containing the virus.Meanwhile, the Vice President of Liberia, Joseph N. Boakai, has promised that the government will work at the various border points around the country to ensure that Liberia does not have any further outbreak of the virus from the borders.He called on communities to cooperate in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus, acknowledging that, “The various communities have been very helpful in the fight.”The Vice President said government will work with the bordering countries of Sierra Leone and Guinea to ensure that they control their border areas in order to keep the people of the three countries hardest hit by the Ebola virus safe from the further spread of the disease.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The Best Amazon Fire Tablets of 2019

first_img Amazon The last thing you want when you hand your kid a tablet is for them to come back a short time later and say, “It’s dead! Charge it!” Fortunately, the Fire HD 8 For Kids lasted a very long 10 hours and 12 minutes on our web-surfing battery test. Not only is that higher than the average for all tablets, but it also beats the Fire 7 Kids Edition’s 6:53 time by more than 3 hours. It’s also faster than the 7-inch kids’ tablet.The included foam bumper means this slate can survive any drops and knocks your child can throw at it, and a two-year, no-questions-asked warranty means a free replacement if Junior actually breaks the device. The tablet also comes with a year of Amazon’s FreeTime Unlimited service, a digital treasure trove that features more than 15,000 age-appropriate games, movies and TV shows, including most of the popular programs from Disney, Nickelodeon and PBS.Detailed parental controls let you decide everything from what hours your child can use the device to what apps, content and websites he or she can visit. You can even set educational goals so your kid has to read for a certain amount of time in order to get playtime.Pros: Best-in-class parental controls; Wealth of free content; Accidental damage coverage; Long battery life; No adsCons: Most expensive Amazon tabletKey specs: Display: 8 inches (1280 x 800 pixels); CPU: quad-core, 1.3-GHz processor; RAM: 1. GB; Storage: 32GB; microSD expandability: up to 256GB; Cameras (Rear/Front): 2 MP/0.3 MP; Battery Life: 10:12; Weight: 1.1 pounds It may cost a little more than the Fire 7, but the Fire HD 8 packs enough extras to justify that additional $30. Not only does it last 4 hours longer on a charge than the Fire 7 (that’s 58 percent more time to surf and read and play), but it’s also better for watching video, as its 8-inch, 1280 x 800-pixel display is sharper and brighter than the Fire 7’s 1024 x 600-pixel panel. Lastly, the Fire 8’s stereo speakers make it better for Amazon Prime Music, as the Fire 7 is rocking a single mono speaker.We just wish that this tablet had a better camera and that Amazon didn’t charge users an extra $15 to remove the “special offers” advertisements that display on the lock screen. Still, the Fire HD 8’s display and battery life combine to make it the best tablet under $100.Pros: Long battery life, Alexa built in; Sharpest displayCons: Must pay extra to remove ads; Camera is blurryKey specs: Display: 8 inches (1280 x 800 pixels); CPU: quad-core, 1.3-GHz processor; RAM: 1.5GB; Storage: 16GB for $79, 32GB for $109; microSD expandability: up to 256GB; Cameras (Rear/Front): 2 MP/0.3 MP; Battery Life: 10:58; Weight: 0.81 pounds Amazon Amazon Author Bio Amazon Fire 7 (2019) Review » The Fire 7 is Amazon’s most-affordable tablet, at $50, a price tag that’s hard to argue with, and the lowest for any tablet (the 8-inch Walmart Onn is a slightly pricier $64). This tablet’s pretty good for its price, with a bright screen and durable-feeling chassis. And now it’s got the full-fledged version of the Alexa digital assistant, so you can simply speak commands, rather than have to walk over to tap its home button (which you used to have to do). So, while the Fire 7 isn’t the fastest or longest-lasting Amazon slate (that’d be the HD 8), it’s still a solid tablet considering its super-cheap price.Pros: Snappy despite its price; Super cheap; Hands-free AlexaCons: Amazon ads a-plenty (unless you pay more); Low-res display; Still no Google appsKey specs: Display: 7 inches (1024 x 600 pixels); CPU: Quad-Core 1.3 GHz; RAM: 1GB; Storage: 8GB | 16GB; microSD expandability: up to 256GB; Cameras (Rear/Front): 2 MP/0.3 MP; Battery Life: 6:53; Weight: 0.65 pounds Amazon Amazon Fire HD 8 deals?23 Amazon customer reviews☆☆☆☆☆US$269US$63.40ViewUS$78.99ViewUS$79.99ViewUS$109.99ViewShow More DealsWe check over 130 million products every day for the best pricespowered by From $49.99 Henry is a senior writer at Laptop Mag, covering security, Apple and operating systems.

That screen is also brighter and more colorful, with an sRGB rating of 104.2 percent (its smaller siblings top out at 79.4 percent) and a brightness max of 405 nits (the other Fire tablets only go up to 380 nits). Its biggest drawback, though, is that it’s three times the price of the Fire 7 and $70 more than the HD 8 (which lasts longer on a single charge).Pros: Brightest, most-colorful display; More storage; Includes AlexaCons: Must pay extra to remove ads; Much more expensiveKey specs: Display: 10.1 inches (1920 x 1200 pixels); CPU: quad-core, 1.8-GHz processor; RAM: 2GB; Storage: 32GB; microSD expandability: up to 256GB; Cameras (Rear/Front): 2 MP/0.3 MP; Battery Life: 9:04; Weight: 1.11 pounds From $149.99 Henry T.

Not only does it come in a durable foam case that makes it easier for smaller hands to grip, but also, the best-in-class parental controls mean that moms and dads can make sure their progeny are staying safe online. On top of all that, you get a free year of Amazon’s FreeTime Unlimited content — a buffet of kid-friendly apps, books, TV shows and movies — which normally costs $3 per month.You and your kids may be disappointed by the slate’s audio quality, as this tablet’s mono speaker is tinnier than the HD 8’s stereo sound. But parents looking for a kid-proof tablet won’t find a more affordable option out there.Pros: Cheapest option for kids; Great parental controls; Plenty of free content; Damage-protection guaranteeCons: Poor battery life; low-res displayKey specs: Display: 7 inches (1024 x 600 pixels); CPU: quad-core, 1.3-GHz processor; RAM: 1GB; Storage: 8GB for $49, 16GB for $69; microSD expandability: up to 256GB; Cameras (Rear/Front): 2 MP/0.3 MP; Battery Life: 6:53; Weight: 0.86 poundslast_img read more
