President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf broke down in tears yesterday at the funeral of Dr. Edward McClain Jr., who served as Minister of State for Presidential Affairs and Chief of Staff. He was also a long-time personal friend and confidant of the President. Dr. McClain died on Saturday, July 23, at the Wilgers Life Hospital in Lynwood, Pretoria, South Africa, following a period of illness.Fighting back tears, President Sirleaf described Dr. McClain as a dedicated, humble, selfless, efficient and loyal public servant to his country and people.She said her relationship with Dr. McClain was extraordinary because they worked together for more than 18 years in the interest of the Liberian people, with Dr. McClain instrumental to her rise to the presidency.“We worked together until the 1977 election separated us, and we later met in Abidjan. He devoted his time to work along with me in serving the people of Liberia and he showed a great sense of dedication as a servant when we returned to Liberia in 2003, which resulted to my success in 2006 when I took over as President of this nation,” she said, still in tears. President Sirleaf said their relationship grew effectively and further when Dr. McClain kept his promise and commitment by putting his country first. She lauded Dr. McClain for his contribution because he was one minister of government for whom no task or job was too big or small. Dr. McClain ignored his major health problems, she said, when he should have placed more focus on himself and did everything to work for his country and people.“We can never have someone like you Bobbin,” President Sirleaf said, sobbing, “We can never match what you represented as a true friend… surpassed by your loyalty, selflessness, dedication, and as a humble public servant.“I deeply regret your unexpected departure, which came too soon, and left to go and rest. Bobby I wish you a peaceful journey, and may your soul rest in peace.”Giving the funeral discourse under the Theme: ‘My Duty While in the Valley’ from Job 1:6-22, Rev. Charles Diggs said that Dr. McClain lived an exemplary life that impacted society, friends and family.“I urge those in higher positions to follow the example of Dr. McClain and serve your country to the end,” Rev. Diggs said. “McClain’s life was a clear picture of a humble servant, because at times he had problems with his boss, President Sirleaf, but it was never seen in the press, but was handled properly because of his diligent service to his country.” Rev. Diggs urged the family to take solace in the Lord, not to lose hope, but continue to represent the life that Dr. McClain lived, for his name to live on.The bereaved family expressed appreciation to the government of Liberia, as well as the President of Ivory Coast, who sent a representative to convey last respect to the fallen minister. The funeral brought together several government officials, members of the Diplomatic Corps, former officials of government and well-wishers, who paid glowing tributes to Dr. McClain’s memory at the Providence Baptist Church on Ashmun Street in Monrovia.The late Minister of State, Dr. Edward B. McClain, was interred at the Jake Melton Family Plot, in Caldwell. The Pierre matriarch was a Watts, who are close cousins of the Meltons. Dr. McClain was married into the Pierre family, most of whom are buried there.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

below is the interview from Ji’nan Education TV station in Shandong province. Here, I’d like to begin by thanking the online media that helped me publish the Tang diary and the friends who constantly reprinted the diary of the Tang dynasty.

1 – a brief introduction to entrepreneurship and management.
, it’s nice to discuss the topic of entrepreneurship with you. Let me introduce myself before I make a formal inquiry. My name is Qi Tang,
was born in 1978 in a farmer’s family in Yishui County, Shandong City, Linyi province.
graduated from the Department of mathematics of Linyi Normal University in 2001.
worked as a programmer at an Internet company in Linyi after graduation in 2001;
in the winter of 2001, he came to Ji’nan alone and worked as a programmer in an Internet company;
worked as a technician in a equipment company in Ji’nan in the winter of 2002;
in the summer of 2004, began his own entrepreneurial process, and later founded a web site, that is, the current Qilu land network
because I’m talking about entrepreneurship today, I’d like to say something about my own entrepreneurial experience in the past few years. I want to help someone who is starting or want to start a business.
in the summer of 2004, penniless, I borrowed a little money to start a business with my friends. At that time, two people made a total of 10 thousand yuan of start-up funds. Renting an office and buying some office supplies costs less. The initial time is to make money by selling Baidu rankings, but sold for some time, I feel this business can not do, and did not earn a few money, and then did not do.
company also have to run, we have to eat, how to do? But we chose to enterprise site, although the work of the station is not good, low profits, but after all, earn food to eat. So hold on for half a year, during the first half of this in the spare time to build a platform of their own information network in Ji’nan [later upgraded to Qilu information port August 2008 www.qlxxg.com has upgraded to Qilu network www.qiludadi.cc], then this site although there is no income, but every day to see a lot of people to release information, find information, the feeling is still very there is a sense of accomplishment. Because I am optimistic about the classification of this market, day after a big development. But there were only one secondary channel in the information port, and there was no focus on the operation. In this context, the development of Ji’nan information network was very great
