(AP Photo/Kim Kwang Hyon, File)LOS ANGELES — Former NBA star Dennis Rodman says he will travel to Singapore “for the historical summit” between President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, even though Trump says he wasn’t invited.Rodman announced his plans via tweet Friday and thanked the cryptocurrency company PotCoin for sponsoring the trip.

first_imgThe Young Men’s Christian Association of Liberia (YMCA) over the weekend turned over a six-room modern pit latrines and a hand pump to residents of West Point Community.Madam Vivien Beh, YMCA Slums Project Coordinator, said the construction of the two facilities is the entity’s contribution to communities in Monrovia.“The projects were initiated with support from COMIC Relief and Y-CARE International, and are aimed at giving back to the people of Liberia,” Ms. Beh said.Addressing beneficiaries during the dedication, Ms. Beh said it is time for Liberians to take ownership of their country by engaging in meaningful activities that will impact the people’s lives.She urged community residents to maintain the facilities well so that they may last long.She further noted that while it is good to question and hold government accountable for management of the country’s resources, Liberians are equally under moral obligation to contribute toward the betterment of their communities.Citizens have the responsibility to clean their environment and maintain the facilities government and other groups provides.The YMCA’s Slum Project Coordinator said, “Not everything government will provide. Liberians must undertake community development projects that will move the country forward, rather than depending on government for all the needs.”She noted that West Point lacks basic social facilities, including public toilets, and it is against this backdrop that the YMCA and its partners decided to construct latrines and hand pumps for over 12,000 inhabitants of that community.“This facility will be managed by the community and not the YMCA; therefore, do not wait for YMCA to tell you what to do or how to manage your facilities,” she stated.She said the YMCA only serves as the technical support arm for the Slum Dwellers Association of Liberia (SLUMDAL), enhancing its capacity to advocate for slum dwellers. The YMCA and its partners have been working in West Point and Slipway communities for one and a half years.“As long as the community continues to support the Liberia YMCA, we will work together to develop the slum communities.” Madam Beh assured.Responding to the gesture, West Point Township Commissioner, Miatta Flowers, said the project was timely, and promised the YMCA that the facilities will be used wisely, and maintained well.Commissioner Flowers thanked the YMCA family and partners for their farsightedness, adding, “This is a clear indication of your love for, and interest in the people of West Point.”She said over the years the township has struggled with the need for latrines and safe drinking water in the community.She then called on residents to maintain the facilities for their own good.West Point is the largest slum community in Monrovia with over 100,000 residents who dwell in clustered houses.Due to a lack of space, most of the houses lack toilet facilities.  Residents therefore used the Atlantic Beach as do other slum communities in Sinkor, until the Liberia Maritime sent in a task force to keep the beaches around Monrovia clean.In the past, those who could not go to the beach used plastic bags to defecate, which then landed over others’ rooftops during the night hours.The YMCA of Liberia, with support from COMIC Relief and Y-CARE International, is implementing the Slums Development Project Titled: “Young People as Agents of Change: Helping to Transform Slum Settlements.”The project is being carried out in two slum settlements in Monrovia—West Point and Slip-Way—and is expected to last for three years.It is aimed at strengthening community residents to improve their living conditions in these communities, and driving young people as catalysts for change.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgA man lying face down in a swampy area in Caldwell was discovered on Friday, August 1, having gone missing for three days, his family members reported.Roland Thompson’s decomposing corpse was pulled out of an uncovered septic tank by community dwellers days after his family had been frantically searching for him.According to Mohammed, a relative of the deceased, the late Roland Thompson went to a wake on July 29, 2014 and never returned home.“He never came back that morning after the wake, and after three days of looking for him, we decided to check behind this house where one man said he had fallen before,” stated Mohammed.Witnesses on the scene said one of Roland’s friends had also fallen into the septic tank years ago, and that’s why they decided to check for the missing man there.‘This is not the first time someone has fallen into it, Roland’s close friend that pulled him out of the water said. Herds of community dwellers stood watching as the two men frantically tried to remove the late Thompson from the water, but everyone was afraid to assist due to the Ebola outbreak“Someone please help us get him out! You, too, have to die one day and you will need us to bury you,” shouted one of the men who pulled Thompson from the water.According to Mohammed, the Ministry of Health was notified about the finding of the deceased man and they were told to wait before moving or burying his corpse.“They never came, so we called our Commissioner and she gave us the go ahead to remove him, and that’s what we’re doing right now,” added Mohammed.The late Roland Thompson has since been buried and no charges have been filed.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgA motion tabled in the National Assembly on Thursday, which was centred on the adoption of the sixth report of the Standing Committee on Appointments to address the appointment of members to the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Authority, was shut down by the Government in a vote that saw it being deferred to another sitting.The motion was moved by Chairman of the Appointments Committee of the National Assembly, Social Cohesion Minister, Dr George Norton, who asked for itOpposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeirato be deferred to another date. Dr Norton did not provide any explanation or give any reasons for the said deferral. But this did not go down too well with the Opposition, who argued that the continuous deferral does not bode well for Government.Opposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeira was the first to bring this issue to the attention of Speaker Dr Barton Scotland. Teixeira described the request as highly irregular and demanded that Dr Norton provide an explanation for the request to members of the House, especially since this matter has been repeatedly put off by the Government nearing 10 months now.“I have to be suspicious, Sir, as to why this is being deferred at this time. Is it that the 10 names of the Committee with civil society to bring to this House, are they no longer considered fit and proper? Because the Minister of Legal Affairs (Basil Williams) stated in his latter that CFATF (Caribbean Financial Action Task Force recommended that the Act need to be amended,” she added.The Committee had recommended: Captain Gerald Gouveia and Nicholas Deygoo for the Private Sector Commission; Wayne Fordyce of the Guyana Association of Bankers; Thomas Bissessar Singh and Frederick Collins for Transparency Institute of Guyana Inc; Mohamed Alli and Christopher Ram of Bar Association of Guyana; and Melissa Jessica DeSantos for Insurance Institute of Guyana.The Member of Parliament (MP) also pointed out that there was no reference in 100 pages in four reports that CFATF was recommending that the Authority did not comply with the AML/CFT. She said this pointed to the fact that the Authority to which the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) was made responsible would undermine the independence of the FIU and this would render Guyana’s AML/CFT structure defective.Like her colleague Anil Nandlall had stated before, Teixeira told the National Assembly that the Government must state exactly what it intended to do. She said if the Government have to repeal the Section of the Act which creates the Authority, then they must come out straight and say that.She reminded that the creation of this Authority was part of the amendments which the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) used their majority to impose upon the AML/CFT (Amendment) Bill 2014, which the previous Government had tabled in the 10th Parliament. The Opposition has maintained that it was unnecessary and not part of the recommendations of CFATF.The Authority’s specific responsibilities according to the Act are to ensure that the work of the FIU is conducted in an efficient, fair and cost-effective manner, in accordance with policy guidelines determined by the Assembly and the Finance Minister, ensuring, in the national interest, the performance of the FIU accords with international obligations and commitments, among others.During Teixeira’s contribution, Attorney General Basil Williams rose on a point of order and sought a clarification on the MP’s statement. Williams defended the reason for the deferral stating that the matter regarding the AML/CFT was one that was self-explanatory and could not be further debated. The Speaker then intervened and asked the AG to stay focused after he began to stray away from the argument at hand.This was met with Opposition by the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) MPs, who prompted the Speaker of the House to take the matter to a vote. Twenty-nine MPs voted in favour of the deferral and 28 MPs against. The motion for deferral was then carried.Despite this, the Opposition has indicated that the process by which members of this Authority were to be appointed was also deeply flawed, since the members of this Authority were to be appointed by MPs, who are “politically exposed persons” and are liable to be investigated by the persons whom they are to appoint. This argument, the Opposition said, also applies to the FIU Director, Deputy Director and other senior functionaries of the FIU who are appointed by the National Assembly. The establishment of this Authority is in keeping with the AML/CFT (Amendment) Act No 1 of 2015, Section 7A (1), which states that, “the National Assembly shall by a simple majority and on the recommendation of the Parliamentary Committee on Appointments, after the Committee may deem necessary to consult, appoint a body comprising 10 members to be known as the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering of Financing of Terrorism Authority.”last_img read more

first_imgTHREE men who caused “enormous damage to the Protestant community” in east Donegal were given lengthy suspended prison sentences when they appeared before Letterkenny Circuit Court today.All three had pleaded guilty to burglary and arson offences at a previous hearing.Today’s court heard that on December 6th 2008, gardai responded to an incident a the Presbyterian Church Hall in St Johnston after reports of a fire. Almost €29,000 worth of damage was done to the hall in the attack.Before today’s court was Emmett O’Donnell, 23, of Ard Baithin, St Johnston, Kelan Clarke, 22, of Ard Baithin, St Johnston and Donal Gillespie, 21, of Old Road, St Johnston.The court heard the three had put chairs into the centre of church hall and set them alight. They had also emptied fire extinguishers during the incident.Barristers representing all three men confirmed to the court that they had each made contributions to the church of €4,000 in compensation, even though the fire was covered by insurance, as directed at a previous hearing by Circuit Court Judge John O’Hagan.“I recall this particular case very well. This particular hall was a pivotal centre for the Protestant community in this area and it was absolutely trashed,” said Judge O’Hagan.“These young men know this place very well and decided to trash it.”The Judge said the offences were particularly serious and he praised Rev Craig Wilson for “his magnanimous” decision to offer a hand of friendship to the accused so that they could “turn their lives around.”Each of the men was sentenced to three years imprisonment on each count – burglary and arson.The sentences were suspended for three years, with a €500 surety to keep the peace.AT HEARING.

first_imgST. LOUIS — Two strikes to go and the season hanging in the balance, there’s nobody the St. Louis Cardinals would rather have at the plate than Albert Pujols. From his first day in the major leagues as a relatively unknown 21-year-old who played wherever his team needed him, Pujols has been one of the best in the game. So it’s no surprise the Cardinals worked hard to put the game in Pujols’ hands. He responded by shocking the Houston Astros with a dramatic three-run homer that cut Houston Astros’ NL championship series lead to 3-2 and sent the series back to St. Louis for Game 6 tonight. “He’s unlike anybody else, he’s a special player.” That he got the biggest hit of a meteoric career on the national stage, following Eckstein’s single and Jim Edmonds’ walk, could elevate the perception of a player who in a matter of seconds silenced a raucous sellout crowd. “I can give you 50 examples of what he’s done,” manager Tony La Russa said. “I think the reality is that a lot of people kind of watch the playoffs and don’t pay a lot of attention or as close attention. “Forever now, as long as baseball history is repeated, that home run is going to be part of history and Albert will have his place in it.” Then again, he’s already finished second in the MVP voting twice, in 2002-03, and was rookie of the year in 2001. So those in the know, know. “He and Barry Bonds are the two greatest hitters in the game right now, I’ve always thought that, and him hitting this home run doesn’t change my views,” pitcher Jason Marquis said. “To me, that’s one guy I wouldn’t like to face in that situation whether he hit the home run or not.” Entering Game 6, Pujols is batting .447 the last two postseasons against the Astros, with six homers and 15 RBIs. Astros Game 6 starter Roy Oswalt said what makes Pujols a challenge is his ability to power the ball to all fields. “With him, you can make a pretty good pitch away or make a pretty good pitch in and he’ll hit it out to either left or right field,” Oswalt said. “You’ve got to respect that he can hit the ball out of the park, but you can’t be afraid of him, for sure.” True to form, on Tuesday Pujols was already tired of talking about the homer that soared into the Houston night well beyond the short porch at Minute Maid Park. “You guys are making a big deal of this,” he told reporters. “This is not the last game of the World Series, this is just another game. We need to move on. “I’ve seen all the highlights but it’s not over, we still have a long way to go.” Pujols was more interested in what the hit might do for the team’s slumbering offense. They’re batting .223 in the postseason and are 6-for-35 with runners in scoring position in the NLCS, and Pujols has six of the 15 RBIs. “Hopefully this is the spark that we were looking for,” Pujols said. “I know we were struggling a little bit — not a little bit, a lot — in Houston with the bats. Getting that big win against one of the best closers in the game is always big.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It’s typical production from the first player in major league history to hit 30 homers in his first five seasons, the third-youngest player to reach 200 homers, the fourth player to begin his career with five straight 100-RBI seasons. “He’s obviously the best I’ve ever played with,” Game 6 starter Mark Mulder said. “I was with (Jason) Giambi the year he won the MVP, but what Albert does day in and day out is just so impressive. last_img read more

first_imgFinn Harps will be hoping to bounce back from their defeat last weekend when they make the long trip south on Friday to take on Waterford United at the RSC (kick-off 7.45pm).Although Waterford only won their first game of the season last weekend, at the seventh time of asking, Harps manager Ollie Horgan said that they will still provide a tough task for his team on Friday.“Waterford are a very difficult team to beat, especially down there,” said Horgan as he prepares for the trip to the south-east. “We were lucky to get a draw at home against them when we played them on the opening day of the season. They haven’t conceded in their last three games so they will be very difficult to break down.“They have loads of attacking options in their team including Vinny Sullivan, Willie John Keily, Conor Meade and Jack Doherty to mention a few, so we know they have the firepower to damage us.”Last weekend, Horgan watched his side lose for the second time this season in a 1-0 away defeat in Longford. However, the game was decided by a dubious penalty and Horgan felt his side deserved something from the game.“Had we been beaten by three or four, out the door if you like, we might be more content and I could stand here and say: ‘The better side won’,” Horgan said. “It’s hard. The penalty decision was very, very harsh. Really, there wasn’t a whole lot in it apart form that. It’s hard to take. It was a decent cross, nothing great. Packie seemed to stumble into it and he seemed to be pushed into it in a way, but that’s not for me to stay.“We didn’t get the rub of the green, but so be it. We won’t dwell too much on it. We matched them for most of the ninety minutes, but we got nothing out of it.,” said Horgan.“We limited them to a couple of chances. They are very strong at set pieces, their delivery and movement is excellent. We dealt with that, but then we conceded the penalty. Longford are a decent side with some serious players.”Although Harps were defeated 3-0 on their last visit to the RSC in June, they were unbeaten in their previous four visits there (3 draws and 1 victory). The two clubs met in the opening day of the 2014 season at Finn Park, with the game ending in a scoreless draw.Kevin McHugh remains out while Sean McCarron is also a doubt ahead of Friday’s trip to the RSC. Tommy Bonner serves a one match suspension for accumulating four yellow cards, while Keith Cowan serves the second of a four match ban as a result of his red card in the 1-1 draw with Wexford Youths a couple of weeks ago. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~TEAM NEWSSuspended: Tommy Bonner, Keith Cowan.Doubtful: Sean McCarron.

first_imgDo you remember the days when Yahoo was a Yellow Pages-like directory of websites? Back in the early days of the Internet, a number of companies created vast, human-edited databases that aimed to catalog all the Web – and some even sold these as printed books. According to mobile search engine Taptu, the mobile Internet is at a similar point today, where a directory is simply the easiest way to discover content. While Taptu’s main focus is still on its crawler-based search engine for mobile sites, the company also just launched a Yahoo-like directory of touch-friendly websites.The Mobile Web is Going Through Its “Yahoo Phase” Earlier this year, AdMob’s CEO and founder Omar Hamoui argued that the mobile Web is going through its “Yahoo phase,” as it is still possible to find mobile apps using directory-like app stores instead of having to rely on more advanced search engines. While Hamoui was mostly talking about apps, the same could be said about the mobile Web in general. The number of touch-friendly mobile sites is still relatively small when compared the Web as a whole, and services like Taptu’s new directory make sense at this point.Taptu’s DirectoryTo help its users find the best touch-friendly sites for mobile phones, Taptu decided to create a directory. Taptu notes that phones with touchscreens are quickly becoming mass-market devices, but a lot of these devices don’t feature app stores. For Taptu, the top five traffic-generating phones include the Samsung Caliber, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and Samsung Finesse. Thanks to Taptu’s focus on touch-friendly sites, the directory turns out to be a fun way to find interesting sites on the go, without the hassle of having to deal with sites that don’t work well on small screens. To access Taptu’s directory, just head over to the company’s mobile site and look for the Categories icon at the top of the page.
