MOT to Decentralize Activities

first_imgTransport Minister-designate, Madam Angela Cassell Bush, has said decentralization of the transport sector to three regions including Bong, Nimba and Grand Gedeh would be one of her priority areas during her tenure as Minister of Transport.According to her Madam Bush, her administration would do the decentralization for efficiency and revenue generation purposes.Appearing before the Senate Committee on Transport Monday, August 11, the Transport Minister-designate disclosed that as part of the country’s development strategy, she intends to fully automate the driver’s license and vehicle registration processes within the Ministry.She noted that her aim is to work with relevant government ministries and agencies to close the gap or the leakages in these processes, reduce fraud and further enhance the revenue generation capacity of the Ministry.Presenting her 180-Action Plan, Madam Bush asserted that the conduct of series of inter-agency reviews to assist them better understand the structural, policy, legal and technical challenges facing the sector.“We will use and build on all existing documentations. We will initiate a scheme for effective coordination amongst agencies within the sector. Along these lines, we will work to activate the national transport policy and strategy implementation steering committee chaired by the Ministry of Transport and co-chaired both GIZ and Ministry of Public Works with the National Port Authority (NPA), National Transit Authority (NTA) Roberts International Airport (RIA) serving as members.“As the sector Minister, we will work with relevant stakeholders to review the status of reconstruction works at the RIA, particularly our airport runaway, in light of the current crisis,” Madam Bush asserted.Within the same period, she assured the legislature of her administration’s desire to focus more energy on soft projects such as the setting up of a one-stop shop, developing policy manuals, strengthening the internal control framework and capacity development.She pledged her commitment to engaging regional and international partners including the Roberts Flight Information Region (RFIR) to ensure audio visual monitoring of airplanes operating in the airspace of the three member countries, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea in strict compliance with regional and international transport policies and regulations.In response, Senator Geraldine Doe-Sheriff encouraged the nominee to be proactive and must stick to her plans of transformation at the ministry.The Transport Minister’s confirmation report is expected to be read before plenary for possible confirmation or rejection.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Whos Likely To Win The Five Big European Soccer Leagues

Since FiveThirtyEight relaunched with ESPN, we’ve created predictions for the NFL, NBA, MLB, NWSL, the men’s and women’s World Cup, college football, college basketball and tennis. Now we’re adding another set for the world’s most popular sport. Introducing: Club soccer predictions!Our new ratings — which are a revamped version of the ESPN Soccer Power Index (SPI) of national teams, adapted to the club game — use in-game player and ball-location data to assess the quality of shots and opportunities that teams generate. This gives us a better picture of performance than can be gleaned from game outcomes alone; you can read more in our full methodology here. Based on each team’s performance we calculate an offensive and defensive rating, which are used to predict the outcome of matches over the rest of the season.Right now, our predictions cover Europe’s five strongest club leagues — England’s Premier League, Spain’s La Liga, Germany’s Bundesliga, Italy’s Serie A and France’s Ligue 1 — and the Champions League. Our prediction pages are available in English and Spanish. Here’s how each league stands.Premier League Italy’s club season also started with a clear favorite, as Juventus sought its sixth-straight title. The club currently holds a one-point lead with a game in hand, and we rate Juve’s defense as the best in Serie A. AS Roma and Napoli have slightly stronger offenses and a combined 36 percent chance of winning the league. Those three teams are the favorites to take the league’s three Champions League spots as well, with Lazio and both Milan clubs capable of making spoiler runs.Ligue 1 Eintracht34<1 Sevilla94 CHANCE OF … Teams with a greater than 5 percent chance of qualifying for Champions League Real Madrid>99%49% Dortmund146 Man.

While at the start of the season we projected the Foxes to finish ninth, they currently sit in 15th place, and we give them a 12 percent chance of being relegated. Swansea City, which skyrocketed from the fourth tier to the Premier League between 2005 and 2011, has a 61 percent chance of relegation.La Liga CHANCE OF … Lyon512 Teams with a greater than 5 percent chance of qualifying for Champions League Juventus93%60% Inter Milan211 Atletico Madrid68<1 Roma7823 Real Sociedad18<1 Nice471 TEAMMAKING CHAMP.

Tottenham and Dynamo Kiev probably were the two best teams eliminated: They had a 68 percent and 58 percent chance of advancing, respectively. AS Monaco and Benfica advanced in their stead.The knockout stage begins on February 14. Barcelona, which faces Paris Saint-Germain in the Round of 16, remains the favorite to win the title at 25 percent. Bayern, Real and Juventus are close behind. We give the other 12 teams just a 37 percent chance of winning, combined. Leicester City’s magic carried the club through the group stage, but its poor Premier League play has lowered its ratings. We give Leicester just a 29 percent chance of advancing past Sevilla to the quarterfinals, and a 1 percent chance of making the final.Check out our latest soccer predictions.

Our ratings still consider third-place Barcelona to be the stronger team on both sides of the ball, which makes Real’s offense merely the second-best in the world. This leaves us with a neck-and-neck race for the league title, with a pivotal matchup between the two clubs looming in Madrid on April 23.Sevilla sits in second place, but we don’t expect the club to finish in first. Its goal differential is nearly half that of Real and Barcelona, and we rate Sevilla’s offense as about a goal per game worse than the other two teams’. Nevertheless, Sevilla is in good position to qualify for the Champions League by finishing in the top four in La Liga, after having qualified as the Europa League champion in each of the last two seasons.Bundesliga AC Milan11<1 Chelsea96%62% Teams with a greater than 5 percent chance of qualifying for Champions League TEAMMAKING CHAMP.

RB Leipzig — which played in Germany’s second division last season but isn’t exactly a heartwarming underdog — is only three points behind in the table. Our ratings consider RB to be a much inferior team to Bayern, though, and goal differential agrees. We peg Dortmund as the second-best offense and fourth-best defense in the league, but an ugly 7-win, 6-draw, 3-loss start has the club in sixth place, with too much ground to make up.The battle for Champions League qualification is a bit more exciting. Bayern is a lock and we expect RB and Dortmund to qualify as well, but the league’s fourth spot is wide open.

We have ourselves a race!We expect the title battle to come down to PSG and Monaco, which are now closely matched in our ratings (with Nice considerably lower).

But even though Chelsea isn’t necessarily the best team in the league, seven points is a large margin with 17 games to play; we give Chelsea a 62 percent chance of taking the title.

2020 Toyota Prius Prime picks up Apple CarPlay and a fifth seat

first_imgEnlarge ImageThe Prius Prime arrived in the 2017 model year to replace the Prius Plug-In, and it’s remained relatively unchanged since then. Toyota Toyota may have given the regular Prius a redesign for the 2019 model year, but the Prius Prime plug-in hybrid soldiered on unchanged. The automaker will change that, though, with a slew of solid updates for the 2020 model year.Toyota this week unveiled a raft of changes for the 2020 Toyota Prius. However, the aesthetics remain unchanged, leaving the Prius Prime to look like a sharper yet also wackier version of the regular Prius. The two do look a bit more similar, though, thanks to the 2019 Prius’ visual updates. The adjustments focus on interior comfort and tech. Perhaps most importantly, Toyota has added Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM satellite radio and Amazon Alexa compatibility as standard equipment across the lineup. To ensure everybody’s devices are topped off for post-drive adventures, the 2020 Prius Prime now sports two extra USB ports in the second row.Speaking of the second row, it now accommodates three individuals, up from two in previous model years. That’s the major interior update, as the rest are pretty inconsequential. There’s a new extender for the sun visors, the white interior accents have been swapped out for black ones and the front-heated seat buttons have been relocated for easier access. Finally, Toyota also revamped the hierarchy of the lineup. Instead of Plus, Premium and Advanced trims, they’re now called LE, XLE and Limited, mirroring other Toyota vehicles. When the 2020 Toyota Prius Prime goes on sale this summer, it’ll start at $27,600 before destination, rising to $29,500 for the midlevel XLE and $33,500 for the top-tier Limited. Its battery still permits an all-electric range of 25 miles, but taking the gas tank into account, it can run up to 640 miles before it needs more go-go juice. 42 Photos More From Roadshow More about 2019 Toyota Prius • Preview • 2019 Toyota Prius AWD-e: Efficient stability 0 Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross.
