Maury Povich Is The Celebrity Guest Picker For College GameDay At UCF

first_imgThe College GameDay crew in Columbus Ohio.ESPN College GameDayCollege GameDay has struggled this season to get relevant celebrity guest pickers. That was apparent against on Saturday afternoon.ESPN’s flagship college football show is down at UCF, and to be honest, it’s been an incredible scene. Fans brought hundreds of signs and the energy has been fantastic. But we’re still scratching our heads regarding the guest picker.ESPN just announced that talk show host Maury Povich is the guest picker. College football fans are miffed.Povich was born in Washington D.C. and attended UPenn. It doesn’t seem like he has any tie to UCF – at least not that we know of.Twitter erupted when Povich was announced. It seems that most are not thrilled with the pick.Maury Povich as Guest Picker?And the results determined @CollegeGameDay whiffs again!!!!!!!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/GkacUY01o3— NCAAF Nation (@NCAAFNation247) November 17, 2018Whose idea was Maury Povich? Why not have Donald Duck pick using that inimitable voice? The Oregon pick alone would be worth it.— Medium Happy (@jdubs88) November 17, 2018Maury Povich? Really? That tops it… Screw you, @ESPN. You come to Orlando and disrespect #UCF with Maury Povich as the guest picker. Makes me so angry. 3 hours of backhanded compliments. #CollegeGameDay sucks.— Derek J. LaRiviere (@DerekJLaRiviere) November 17, 2018@ESPNCFB really!? Maury Povich…That’s really beneath you isn’t it!?Are you gonna have someone come out and surprise one of your panelists,i won’t be watching the picks off goes your channel.We all know coach will pick UCF.He’d be run out of town otherwiseBS guest picker— Michael Jackson (@Mjcrjdrvrsoonrf) November 17, 2018It’s been a weird year for College GameDay. We imagine next week should be a good episode though – since it’s likely headed to either Ohio State vs. Michigan or Oklahoma vs. West Virginia.last_img read more

UNsupported polio and deworming campaigns in Liberia to protect 12 million children

This round is one of four national vaccination drives that is planned for Liberia in 2005 to vaccinate all children under five years with the free and safe polio vaccine. During the five-day drive, children between the ages of two and five will also receive one deworming Albendazole tablet. Worms are a significant cause of malnutrition, stunting growth and causing severe anaemia, dysentery, and problems with learning and memory.“Thursday’s launch is part of our mobilization and dissemination strategy to ensure the success of round three,” said Ambassador Juli Endee, chairperson of Liberia’s Social Mobilization Committee. “We have organized over 2,000 county level social mobilizers and traditional and religious leaders. “We’ve held consultative meetings with county superintendents, managers, and local language radio producers of community radio stations, as well as trained social mobilizers and vaccination team leaders in interpersonal communication to enable them to communicate effectively to parents and caregivers about the importance of getting their children protected from polio.”Effective information dissemination, partnership, and mobilization are critical to the success of the national polio eradication campaign, according to Angela Kearney, UNICEF’s Representative to Liberia. “The battle to rid Liberia of polio is not yet over. We must focus on the hardest to reach areas of the country to administer the polio drops to children,” she said.UNICEF’s support to the campaign, with World Health Organization (WHO) and other partners, includes the training of county and district level social mobilizers, volunteers and local leaders, helping to decentralize and manage cold chain systems throughout the country, and providing more than a million doses of the vaccine. Liberia is among 23 countries in Africa battling to eradicate polio. The broad international aim is to vaccinate 80 million children across sub-Saharan Africa against the polio virus, UNICEF says. A next in Liberia is planned for mid-December. read more
