first_imgGov’t in no rush to rescue animals in Taal The Nairobi lab belongs to the Lancet healthcare group and has been fitted to handle anti-doping tests. The project took nine months and was paid for by the AIU with help from track and field’s governing body, the IAAF.It’s not a fully accredited WADA lab, but the world anti-doping organization allows an approved facility to handle some tests for cost and geographic reasons as long as it meets criteria.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES DepEd’s Taal challenge: 30K students displaced Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

It’ll be able to perform blood analyses as well as other tests, desperately needed in a country under scrutiny for severe shortcomings in doping control.Previously, blood samples taken from Kenya’s world-beating distance runners had to be flown to South Africa or Europe to be tested at an approved lab within 36 hours, a challenging race-against-time that led to the regular bending of anti-doping rules as revealed by The Associated Press in 2016.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Blood doping is especially relevant to distance running, where Kenya has been a powerhouse for decades. The nation’s reputation has been hit hard, though, by an upsurge in doping cases in recent years and an ineffective and sometimes corrupt anti-doping system.The AIU said it collected more than 3,500 blood samples to test for doping in 2017. It expects the lab in Nairobi to handle between 800 and 1,000 samples a year from the East African region, including from Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania and Eritrea.

DONEGAL HOME-HELP WORKERS HIT JACKPOT WITH BACK-PAY WINDFALLS

first_imgUp to 200 home-help workers across Donegal have received an unexpected windfall after the HSE issued back-dated pay-hikes.Some of the workers have received an additional €2,000 in their paycheques which were lodged last night.The payments relate to 25 cent increases per hour pay increments which the workers should have been awarded in recent years. In many cases the back-pay goes back to more than five years.The HSE examined the issue and found the workers were due to increases and backdated the pay.Donegal county councillor Michael McBride, who has made representations on the issue in recent months, said he was delighted the backpay had been made.“I am delighted and it is only right that these workers get their pay increments which they are entitled to. “I am not sure of the exact number but I am informed it could mean a nice bonus to up to 200 HSE workers – the majority of which are home-help employees.“I am still trying to get all the relevant information form the HSE but the most important thing is that these workers have received the payments which is rightfully theirs,” he told Donegal Daily. DONEGAL HOME-HELP WORKERS HIT JACKPOT WITH BACK-PAY WINDFALLS was last modified: April 13th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cllr Michael McBridehome-help workersHSElast_img read more
