  • Thompson dominates in Doha

    first_img Jamaica’s Simone Facey, 23.00, and Veronica Campbell-Brown, 23.09, finished fourth and fifth respectively.  Earlier, Natoya Goule featuring in only her second Diamond League test, finished seventh in the 800m in a time of 2:01.59 behind winner Caster Semenya (South Africa), 1:56.61 in what was the fastest time registered at the Doha Diamond League.  Schippers had to settle for second place with a time of 22.45 seconds with Marie Josee-Ta Lou taking third spot in 22.77. “It was a tough race, maybe it was the wind. The time was good, and that’s OK for now,” said Schippers.  Elaine Thompson exploded with a dominant 22.19 seconds win in the 200m at the Doha Diamond League meet at the Qatar Sports Club on Friday.  Thompson, the double Olympic sprint champion flew through the first phase of the race, taking control around the corner and holding off an attempt by Dafne Schippers before extending the daylight between herself and her Dutch rival in front of an appreciative crowd. center_img IN PHOTO: Thompson (left) and Schippers. – File Photolast_img read more

  • Did Methodist Bishop Prostrate Before God, or the President?

    first_imgBishop Quire along with senior pastors of the United Methodist prostrate before Weah.Mixed reactions to viral social media video of the Methodist Bishop Quire and priests lying prostrate opposite the seated President WeahA video of Bishop of the Liberia Methodist Conference, Samuel J. Quire, offering a “special prayer” for President George Manneh Weah at the Georgia Patten United Methodist Church, by prostrating with the church’s clergy opposite the President, who was seated behind the altar rail, also praying, caused quite a stir on social media on Sunday, October 6, with mixed reactions from Liberians about the true intent of the bishop.The event was a special thanksgiving and intercessory worship service in observance of the 53 birth anniversary of President Weah, which actually occurred on Tuesday, October 1, 2019.Top “religious leaders and clergymen” within the Methodist Province have remained silent on the issue. Some clergymen said it is so difficult to speak to the issue due to the individual involved and that this would have a negative impact on the Methodist denomination.During the “special service,” Bishop Samuel J. Quire, along with senior pastors of the church, prostrated for several minutes, offering prayers for President Weah, while the President sat in a decorated chair facing the clergies. The President, also, was bowed in prayer.Present at the special service were some government officials, including Liberia’s Foreign Minister Gbehzohngar M. Findley; National Public Health Institute of Liberia (NPHIL) executive director Tolbert Nyeswah and Special Economic Advisor, Emmanuel Shaw, among others.Some Liberians have expressed annoyance about the situation, describing Bishop Quire and senior “pastors” of the church as “worshipping President Weah”, suggesting that the Weah should have been the one prostrating before the “clergies” for prayers.“This is unacceptable, senior clergies prostrating before Weah. We hope that religious leaders will come out to openly condemn the action of the Methodist Church,” a commentator Liberians said. According to him, President Weah, who celebrated his birth anniversary and attended the church for a thanksgiving service, needed to prostrate, and not the Bishop, along with other pastors of the church.Despite the chair being decorated for the president, Bishop Quire is seen cleaning the chair for the president to sit, which many Liberians have described as a sign of seeking favor from the Liberian leader.Efforts to reach Bishop Quire did not materialize, as a spokesperson for the United Methodist Church in Liberia said he had traveled out of the since the incident. The spokesman also declined to comment on the Bishop’s prayer position, saying that it would be better if the Bishop addressed the issue himself.Prostrate before God or man?However, a former Methodist, who is now a minister of the Gospel in a Pentecostal church and who asked not to be named, had this to say: “It depends on what the Spirit of God led the men to do, but there is nothing wrong with a pastor or Bishop prostrating in prayer. As a Christian and a pastor, I don’t have any problem with Bishop Quire and other pastors prostrating in prayer; as long as they were praying to God and not to the President,” the Pentecostal minister said.However, many of the mixed reactions to Sunday’s incident are products of previous instances in which the President is seen on live social media video footage, in a semblance of worship. Many have debated as to whether or not the context of the President’s religious activities is genuine.It can be recalled that one of Liberia’s Nobel Peace co-Laureates (2011), Leymah Roberta Gbowee, speaking as this year’s Independence Day Orator, said truth has evaded Liberians to the extent that some of them, including the “clergies,” have become desperate for anything.“We lie to gain prominence, to gain positions of authority. Let us stop lying. Truth will bring unity. From generation to generation, our leaders have been fooled by religious and traditional leaders,” Madam Gbowee said in her speech.She said that bishops have become partisans, while “pastors and imams have become praise singers.”According to her, “traditional leaders repeatedly twist our cultural practices to please a powerful few, giving unmerited traditional titles.”She added that it is time for us to bring truth back into national history.Reactions on social media “Do not misunderstand anything here dear. Nobody says the President was in any error. We are saying that those pastors should not have bowed down before Weah once they are worshipping God. That is out of order!” said Lawrence SiryonAnother person, identified as ‘Political Commentator’ said: “Sometimes I can wonder whether Weah is using juju on us or it is our own stupidity killing us in Liberia. I have not seen this before in my entire life where a group of religious leaders will prostrate before the biggest sinner in a country for blessings.”“These people have desecrated the sacredness of their churches. This is absurd. My blood is hot right now,” poster said.Zangar David says: “Wow! Humans bowing down to President Weah. God have mercy.”“I bow down to no man besides God,” Morris Grear said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • 450 Trainees Get Computer Literacy Skills at YMCA Under Circle 28

    first_img– Advertisement – The Liberia YMCA recently held graduation for 450 trainees from its Computer Training Program at the organization national headquarters in Monrovia. The ceremony was held under the theme, “Youth Empowerment through Technology.”E. Timotheus Kamaboakai, secretary-general, said the YMCA empowers young people to be leaders and change agents, and drivers of the African Renaissance. According to Kamaboakai, every year, the YMCA tries to modify the program to ensure it is meeting the needs of the country’s economy.He said the YMCA is working to expand the program to Grand Gedeh and Lofa counties to enable the young people there to access it in addition to the already six centers in four of the 15 counties, including Bong, Margibi, Nimba and rural Montserrado.“We are not only making it accessible, but also affordable,” Kamaboakai said.He said the YMCA also wants to enrich the Computer Training Program to ensure that what young people are being prepared for is meeting the market based for employment.Kamaboakai also said the YMCA is beginning the process of registering a junior college in Liberia to fill in gaps at areas that are not offered by the country’s conventional universities.The key focus, according to him, would be to “direct our focus to programs and activities that can lead to information technology engineering to include Agronomics, Digital Media and Entrepreneurship.He therefore appreciated the trainees and the trainers for the hard work, and time they put into the training.Minister of Youth and Sports, D. Zeogar Wilson, who served as keynote speaker, said “we are keenly aware of how important it is not just to the students, who have worked hard to earn your accolades, but also to your families and relatives.”Minister Wilson said one of the statutory mandates of the ministry is to empower the youth to be useful citizens and most effectively discharge their responsibilities. He said since the establishment of the YMCA 138 years ago, it has been one of the key institutions dedicated to the objectives of the Ministry of Youth and Sports.Wilson said the skills acquired by the trainees are important components needed to prepare them to contribute to the national developmental process, while providing them with good means of livelihood.The Coordinator of the YMCA IT Center, Miss Decontee George, who presented the graduates, said since the formation of the Computer Training Program in 2004, a total of 14,000 young men and women have been trained with 53% male and 43% female.Miss George said as of the next Cycle, a new curriculum will be added to the program, noting, “it is necessary to introduce work readiness program at the intermediate and advanced levels.She said many young people, who are trained in various skills do not have work ethics and, as a result, they would complain of “no job.”The YMCA Computer Training Program was established in November 2004 with the aim of providing Computer and Internet skills to the young people of Liberia. Most of the beneficiaries are working with public and private entities, while some have set up their own desktop publishing centers.The center has trained over 14,000 many of the youth in computer literacy which include: Microsoft Office, Access DataBase, Graphics Design, Web design, while also providing other life skills opportunities to the beneficiaries.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Cycle 28 graduates Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels.last_img read more

  • AFC’s PM choice Ramjattan not automatic

    first_img…caretaker President unsure of “running mate”The Alliance For Change (AFC) selection of Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan as the prime ministerial candidate in the upcoming elections may not be accepted by the party’s coalition partner, A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) regardless of the AFC maintaining that it has already determined he would be given that post.Caretaker President David GrangerGranger on Thursday told reporters that Ramjattan has not been given the green light by APNU and the prime ministerial candidacy would be determined after negotiations between the two parties.“The APNU and the AFC are now discussing the Cummingsburg Accord of 2015 and this is one of the issues that will have to be discussed. But I cannot say now who I will be running with,” Granger said.In fact, it is uncertain if the Prime Minister (PM) candidate slot will be granted to the AFC in the elections slated for March 2, 2020. When asked if the PM candidate would be selected from the AFC, President Granger noted: “It is not prudent to anticipate the outcome of negotiations.”However, Granger confirmed that APNU and the AFC were currently reviewing the 2015 Cummingsburg Accord and were working to produce a “revised” Accord for the 2020 elections.“The major aspect is that the two groups, the APNU and the AFC, should abide by the Constitution of Guyana. That is the principal foundation of any agreement, nothing in the Accord should collide with the Constitution … but no names (for AFC PM candidate) as yet.”Earlier this week, Ramjattan had told the media that he remained confident in his supporters ensuring that he was formally declared the Prime Ministerial Candidate in the upcoming elections, regardless of the fact that APNU had not endorsed him to date.After Ramjattan’s selection as the AFC’s prime ministerial candidate-in-waiting a few months ago, Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson had intimated that APNU was duty-bound to accept Ramjattan as President Granger’s running mate as long as the Cummingsburg Accord was in effect.The major party in APNU, the People’s National Congress (PNC) has shown a dogged preference for the incumbent, Moses Nagamootoo. This has manifested in APNU officials making public statements in support of the Prime Minister.PNC heavyweight and Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence had stated publicly that while the AFC has elected Ramjattan as its next prime ministerial candidate, APNU and the AFC have not met on this new development.last_img read more

  • New Report Shows Need To Consider Impacts Of Future Projects

    first_imgThese projects include hydroelectric development, fracking, forestry and numerous proposals linked to BC’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry.The report also shows the need for the government to involve those in these communities so that they don’t feel they are being left out of the process.“The more residents feel excluded from environmental decision-making in their region, the more difficult it is for proponents to achieve social licence. We’ve seen this play out time and again, especially on major projects such as the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG terminal on Lelu Island and the Site C dam in the Peace River Valley,” said Pat Moss of the Northwest Institute.You can find the full report here.Advertisement FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – West Coast Environmental Law and the Northwest Institute for Bioregional Research released a study that shows the urgent need to consider the impacts of pending resource developments in B.C.The findings come from conversations with around 200 people from Prince Rupert, Terrace, Kitimat, Hazelton, Fort St. John and Chetwynd.During these conversations, it was expressed that people feel frustration with the Federal as well as Provincial governments being able to manage the effects of multiple projects.- Advertisement -The conversations also found that people aren’t happy with the current situation of existing project-by-project assessment procedures.“People in northern BC care deeply about the future of their lands and communities, and they deserve meaningful opportunities to participate in decisions that affect their environment,” said Hannah Askew, Staff Counsel at West Coast Environmental Law. “They also deserve a system for reviewing projects that considers the combined impacts of all the industrial activity that is happening in their region.”The communities that were selected for these sessions all came from areas that have been affected by project proposals.Advertisementlast_img read more

  • New rides to twist, flip, spin you giddy

    first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita Tatsu LOCATION: Six Flags Magic Mountain, Valencia. OPENS: April 8 SPEED: 62 mph LENGTH: 3,602 feet HEIGHT: 170 feet DETAILS: With serpent-themed vehicles, Tatsu will wind through Magic Mountain’s rocky terrain with nothing but the sky above and the ground below. Think: “Hidden Dragon, Crouching Coaster.” Riders will fly horizontally through trees, a 180-degree turn back and around the park’s Sky Tower. GZESH GIDDY ABOUT: Tumbling through the air on his tummy. “It’s a really different sensation when you’re riding with your center of gravity literally down at chest level,” he says. MEANING: Tatsu is Japanese for “flying beast.” Nothankyou is Grandma for “I ain’t riding that.” Goliath LOCATION: Six Flags Over Georgia, Austell, Ga. OPENS: April 1 SPEED: 70 mph LENGTH: 4,480 feet HEIGHT: 200 feet DETAILS: Goliath will live up to its name. This behemoth “mega coaster” won’t even fit inside Six Flags Over Georgia. Instead, riders will travel outside the front gate and back – after experiencing a 200-foot lift hill with a 170-degree drop. GZESH GIDDY ABOUT: The booty-out-of-seat air time. “With most mega coasters, you can usually count on huge drops, high speed and great air time,” he says. MEANING: Goliath was a giant slain in the Bible. Hopefully, a slingshot won’t bring down this beast. Expedition Everest LOCATION: Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Orlando, Fla. OPENS: April 7 SPEED: 50 mph LENGTH: 4,400 feet HEIGHT: 112 feet DETAILS: Located mostly inside a huge 200-foot tall phony mountain in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Expedition Everest will travel both backward and forward and give guests a special encounter with a giant animatronic yeti. And the queue will include artifacts brought back from the real Everest. GZESH GIDDY ABOUT: Moody lighting, fake snow and that very scary beast. He says “the amount of money Disney puts into theming a ride, even if it’s not necessarily the most thrilling ride in terms of sheer height or speed” will make Everest an “all-immersive attraction that’s something you will want to experience.” MEANING: Uh, that this an expedition … to Everest. Patriot LOCATION: Worlds of Fun, Kansas City, Mo. OPENS: April 8 SPEED: 60 mph LENGTH: 3,081 feet HEIGHT: 149 feet DETAILS: Designed by famed coaster makers Bolliger & Mabillard, Patriot will feature four inversions, an inclined banked curve, S-curve and high-speed spiral. If that doesn’t mean anything to you, maybe this will: Patriot will be the longest, tallest and fastest full-circuit inverted roller coaster in the region. GZESH GIDDY ABOUT: Going upside down on the outside. “Inverted coasters are fun because you’re on the outside of the loop rather than on the inside,” he explains. “The cars are manufactured kinda like a runaway speed lift so your feet are dangling. I don’t think I’ve ever been on inverted coaster I didn’t like.” MEANING: Scream whatever you want. This ride doesn’t have anything to do with the Patriot Act. The Voyage LOCATION: Holiday World, Santa Claus, Ind. OPENS: May 6 SPEED: 67.4 mph LENGTH: 6,442 feet HEIGHT: 163 feet DETAILS: Located in Holiday World’s new Thanksgiving-themed land, Voyage riders will experience 24.2 seconds of weightlessness on this wooden coaster. They’ll also whoosh under five underground tunnels, tilt on two sections of 90-degree banks and drop over 100 feet – three times. Turkeys need not ride. GZESH GIDDY ABOUT: Getting wood. “Even though you can do all the inversions and so forth with steel coasters, there’s still much to be said about the rigidness you get with a wooden coasters,” he says. “Most coaster aficionados, if they don’t automatically prefer wooden coasters over steel – at the very least – hold a special place in their heart for woodies.” MEANING: Voyage usually means to travel somewhere. But you basically just go in a circle on this voyage. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! NEW YORK – Wanna dangle from a dragon in Valencia? Ride a giant in Georgia? Venture inside Mount Everest in sunny central Florida? You can this spring when amusement parks from coast to coast launch new roller coasters with over-the-top titles and themes. Some are animalistic, such as bully El Toro at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey. Others are simply spacey, such as Meteor at Little A-Merrick-A in Wisconsin or Starliner at Cypress Gardens Adventure Park in Florida. The Associated Press asked Steve Gzesh, spokesman for American Coaster Enthusiasts, what rollicking rides he’s most eager to take for a spin – of the 75 or so he expects to mount in 2006 – while we attempted to interpret the testosterone-laden titles.

  • Judge offers resignation in Saddam trial

    first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita “There are substitutes. If any judge wanted to resign it wouldn’t hinder the trial process,” he said. Amin would be the second judge to step down in the case. Another member of the panel recused himself in late November because one of the co-defendants may have been involved in the execution of his brother. That judge was replaced. A court official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case, said Amin had offered to resign but efforts were under way to get him to reverse the decision. The U.S. military, meanwhile, said a Marine was killed Friday by small-arms fire during combat in the western town of Ramadi, raising to at least 2,215 the number of American troops who have died since the Iraq war started in March 2003. Electoral officials also said results from the Dec. 15 parliamentary vote could be certified by next week after repeated delays, opening the way for negotiations to formally get under way for the formation of a broad-based coalition government. BAGHDAD, Iraq – The chief judge in Saddam Hussein’s trial has submitted his resignation after becoming fed up with criticism that he had let the proceedings spin out of control, a court official said Saturday. But it wasn’t clear if Rizgar Mohammed Amin’s resignation had been accepted amid behind-the-scenes efforts to change his mind. Amin is the head of a five-judge tribunal overseeing the case against Saddam and seven co-defendants for the deaths of more than 140 Shiite Muslims in the town of Dujail in 1982 in retaliation for an assassination attempt. The chief prosecutor in Saddam’s trial, Jaafar al-Mousawi, told The Associated Press that Amin’s resignation – if accepted – would not affect the proceedings because he could be quickly replaced. In the Saddam case, the chief judge – who is the only one of the five to be identified publicly due to security concerns – has been dismayed by the way he had been attacked in the media by critics who said he allowed the proceedings to get out of hand, the official said. Saddam has often grabbed the spotlight during the nearly three-month-old trial. He has railed at the judge, refused to show up at one session, claimed he was tortured and openly prayed in court when the judge would not allow a recess. Since the trial opened on Oct. 19, two defense lawyers also have been assassinated and a third has fled the country. Police also uncovered a plot to fire rockets at the courtroom in late November. U.S. Senate Judiciary Chairman Arlen Specter, R-Pa., met with Amin in late December and told him to take stronger control of the proceeding. Amin is a Kurd who before the Saddam trial was virtually unknown outside his home region. The trial is scheduled to resume Jan. 24 after a monthlong recess. The defendants could face death by hanging if convicted. In other developments Saturday: Britain’s Foreign Office said Phil Sands, a British journalist kidnapped in Iraq, was rescued by chance on Dec. 31 after U.S. soldiers raided the farmhouse where he was being held on the outskirts of Baghdad. Iraqi and U.S. officials said they were working to free Jill Carroll, a female American journalist kidnapped off a Baghdad street a week ago, but they had not yet made contact with her captors. Gunmen killed a Shiite imam in northern Baghdad, police Maj. Falah al-Mohammadawi said. Police found the body of a man – his legs and hands bound – who had been shot in the head, Capt. Firas Qiti said. The lawyer of former Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz appealed Saturday for President George W. Bush to release his client for medical reasons. The lawyer has said Aziz has lost much weight and suffered several slight heart attacks in detention. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • PARTNER OF BURNS VICTIM CLAIMS SHE DIED OF ‘SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION’

    first_imgAn inquest has heard how a woman was found burned to death but no other part of the room was damaged.Elizabeth McLaughlin was found at her home in Carndonagh on December 31st last year.The 50 year old was found at her home at 42 Close Padraig and was only identified by her dental records. Coroner Dr John Madden said when he saw the remains of Ms McLaughlin spontaneous human combustion did come to mind.However Dr.Madden has described spontaneous human combustion as “probably an urban myth”.A garda described finding the charred remains on the floor of the sitting room with the damage just confined to the remains and the immediate vicinity.The inquest heard from Harry Masterson, partner of Ms McLaughlin for the previous 12 years.He had stayed with her over Christmas and then returned to his home in Moville on 30 December to collect medication.Normally Ms McLaughlin would have rung him around 7am every day, but that had not happened and he became concerned and took the bus to Carndonagh on 31 December at 9.30am.Dolores Loftus, a niece of Ms McLaughlin, had tried to get into the house when she heard the smoke alarm going off at 10.20am but she had been unable to get in.Mr Masterson eventually gained access to the house with the help of a nephew who went in through an upstairs window.Kevin Loftus described to the inquest how he smelled smoke and saw a dead cat lying on the landing.“I kept looking for my aunt and I discovered two more dead cats lying on the floor,” said Mr Loftus.“I saw what I thought was a burnt Christmas tree lying on the sitting room floor and I kept searching for her and felt relieved she was not in the house. I let the others in the door.“Dolores said in the sitting room ‘there is her shoe’. It was then I realised it was a leg – I could not believe what I was seeing and I put everyone out. It took me a couple of minutes to get my head straight and then I rang 999.”The Garda and fire service attended and the scene was preserved and a video taken of the remains in situ before they were removed for post mortem.Dental records and DNA from Ms McLaughlin’s hairbrush were required to formally identify the deceased, Sgt John McLaughlin told the inquest.“Inside the sitting room on the floor were the charred remains of a person. An unusual aspect was that the actual burning and fire damage were confined to the human remains on the floor and the immediate vicinity,” Sgt McLaughlin said.“The room was smoke damaged. I saw an empty vodka bottle close to the remains and saw two dead cats close to the remains.”Deputy State Pathologist Dr Michael Curtis conducted the autopsy on Ms McLaughlin however, Coroner Madden did not read it out, describing it as “quite graphic”.“There was a high level of cyanide in the blood stream and carbon monoxide in the atmosphere, which is not normally there. There was no anti-mortem damage. Death was caused by fire.“There was talk of spontaneous human combustion at the time. I did a little research and that probably is an urban myth, but when I did see the remains, it did come to mind.“There was little damage to the surrounding area. I believe the clothes acted like a wick on a candle – there was the complete destruction of the body but the fire did not spread,” the Coroner said.He offered his sympathy to Mr Masterson, who he said had brought happiness to the deceased.Following the inquest Mr Masterson said he believed Ms McLaughlin had died as a result of spontaneous combustion and cited a recent inquest in Galway which made that finding.“It seems to me to be spontaneous human combustion, which I know is unusual. It was just terrible. I would not wish it on anyone,” Mr Masterson added.PARTNER OF BURNS VICTIM CLAIMS SHE DIED OF ‘SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION’ was last modified: November 11th, 2011 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:CarndonaghELIZABETH MCLAUGHLINHARRY MASTERSONSPONTAEOUS COMBUSTIONlast_img read more
