NRL’s League Bilong Laif, Westpac Bank and Save the Children’s fund have worked together for the first time using rugby fandom to support education in Papua New Guinea in communities.With the program initiated by NRL and Save the Children’s fund- Westpac bank funded the program after seeing the need to educate children in communities with the basic skills and understanding of life.More than 20 children in the Wildlife community participated in the 16 weeks course and training with the NRL League Bilong Laif development officers learning rugby skills and basic understanding of life.They were certified on Tuesday Feb 23 with gifts of NRL Rugby packages and urged that they will be given certificates which may help them find employment and schools to further the knowledge they have received in the short program.Papua New Guinea NRL General Manager Mark Mom said he believed the increasing involvement of children in the sport is improving confidence and changing attitudes in Papua New Guinean society and sporting circles.“We are not here to give you everything but a little to make you understand who you are in the community to make better decisions for your education,” Mom said.Save the Children’s Fund program director Tamara Green also agreed with Mom that the development of children is the base for changing the way we live and the way we think.The participants were proud of the organisers and thank the joint partners for their initiative in bringing the program to their community.

Lilienthal has short, light-brown hair and blue eyes and is about 5 feet, 8 inches. He has three tattoos: the one on his right bicep bears Melinda’s name; on his left arm is a flaming shamrock. An eagle and an American flag that appears to burst through Lilienthal’s skin is inscribed on his back. Anyone with information is asked call the Santa Clarita sheriff’s station at (661) 255-1121. firstname.lastname@example.org (661) 257-5255 SANTA CLARITA – A Valencia carpenter vanished late Sunday night on his way home from a job in Lompoc and had not been heard of Monday, his distraught wife said. Daniel Lilienthal, 40, had spent the day renovating a rundown apartment complex and stayed late to collect rents for his boss. Lilienthal planned to meet an old friend in Oxnard on the homeward drive but overshot the off-ramp and headed for home instead, the friend said. “I have no idea, but I’m definitely worried,” said Justin Daly, 24, of Oxnard, who spoke to Lilienthal by phone shortly before 10 p.m. “I could feel he was tired, based on him making the wrong turns and him going on the freeway too far.” Lilienthal lost his way in Camarillo, Daly said. Lilienthal’s wife, Melinda Barrios, 48, was talking with her husband by phone about the same time as Daly – but the call died when his phone powered down. Lilienthal didn’t carry a phone charger and when he failed to show up by 12:30 a.m. she went searching for him, she said.

MOST of us may hate this sort of weather – but not Ireland’s big wave surfers who have flocked to Donegal to take advantage of it.Hundreds of surfers from all over the country descended on Bundoran to take advantage of waves of up to 40ft!“I have met people who have travelled from Waterford to come surfing in Bundoran,” said Killian O’Kelly from Surf N Turf in the town. “We have had loads of people up from Dublin for the weekend and this is just as good as it gets really for the Donegal-Sligo region.“We get big waves on the west coast of Ireland all the time, but there are certain times of year when you get off-shore winds and they just hold up the waves and they make for perfect conditions. It is not sunny, it’s grey and overcast – but that combination of big waves and off-shore winds just cannot be beaten,” he added.
