Sinoe County Caucus to Sue Dev. Supt

first_imgThe 5-man Sinoe County Caucus in the National Legislature has said it will prosecute the county’s former Development Superintendent, Sneh Johnson, for corruption.The Caucus has at the same time pardoned Superintendent Romeo Quiah, who was also tangled in the alleged corruption web.The Caucus said the decision to take to court the former Development Superintendent is owing to his “defiance, insubordination, and disrespect to the Caucus and the people of the county.”A senior member of the caucus, Senator, J. Milton Teahjay, told the Daily Observer in an exclusive interview yesterday from Greenville, Sinoe County, via mobile phone that Sneh Johnson had absconded with or misapplied 350 bags of cement and 10 hand pumps, among other items that were given to the county for development by the Ministry of Public Works.“We are prosecuting Sneh Johnson and we will make sure he is punished for corruption,” Senator Teahjay said, adding that “this is what we have agreed upon under the chairmanship of Representative Jeremiah W. N. Macaulay.”“What kind of man is he, who thinks he is untouchable? Because of his defiance, insubordination and disrespect to the people of the county, we will carry him to court.”Mr. Johnson was Assistant Development Superintendent from December 2014 to May 2016.The Senator stated that the Caucus’s decision was reached after holding consultations with the people of the county, and was announced during the induction of the new County Administration.Those who were inducted over the weekend are Superintendent Prosper K. Brown; Othello D. Nagbe, Assistant Superintendent for Fiscal Affairs and Administration; and Moses Tuwleh, Assistant Superintendent for Development.The induction of Mr. Brown over the weekend brings to four the number of superintendents that have served Sinoe since President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s administration began in 2006.In a related development, Senator Teahjay has said that the Caucus has “forgiven” former Superintendent Romeo Quiah for dishonesty. Mr. Quiah previously expressed “deep regret and remorse” prior to the Caucus’s decision to forgive him.According to an investigation, the former superintendent was reportedly responsible for the massive looting at the Executive Lodge of 17 air conditioners and the scrapping of the yellow grader and the 966 front loaders among others. Those items were reportedly valued at over US$120,000.“We have forgiven Mr. Quiah…he has shown remorse, and you should know that only remorse leads to a real apology and change,” Senator Teahjay said.It may be recalled that in 2014, Mr. Quiah’s confirmation at the National Legislature following his appointment as superintendent was confronted with hurdles as Senators chose to postpone the hearing based on a past audit report from the General Auditing Commission (GAC) in which the administration under which Quiah served as Assistant Superintendent for Development did not account for more than US$800K.Many believe that the way in which the Caucus “forgave” Mr. Quiah is to appease the Sarpo ethnic tribe amid growing tension between the Sapo and Kru ethnic groups leading to the 2017 elections.In 2014, because of the election, the ethnic tension built up and resulted to threats, insults and friction among and between the county’s Legislators and local authorities.The reactivation of the Kru 48 sections and the Sarpo six sections worsened the conflict.However, the quick formation of the Sinoe Peace Council, now headed by Dr. Amos C. Sawyer, was able to defuse the emerging ethnic clash. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Clocks fall back this weekend; except in the Peace Region

first_imgThere are a number of other places in Canada where the time change does not apply – most notably Saskatchewan, the eastern tip of Quebec, Southampton Island in Nunavut and a small part of southeast B.C.In a 1974 referendum vote, Peace River Regional District communities voted to change our time zone to Mountain Standard Time all year round. The referendum had four options on it, including Mountain Standard Time and Mountain Standard with Daylight Savings Time.According to local historian Larry Evans, most residents wanted the second option, but accidentally voted for Mountain Standard Time without Daylight Saving Time- Advertisement –last_img

Injured Neuer in German World Cup squad as frictions stir

first_img“From the DFB’s perspective, it has been made clear that it was not a good decision, but I didn’t think of leaving them out for a second,” said Germany head coach Joachim Loew.“I have a bit of understanding that two hearts beat in the chests of players with an immigration background.“They have have expressed regret and done a lot for integration in Germany.”There was more political activity as hosts Russia granted a World Cup visa to German journalist Hajo Seppelt, who had been banned from the finals after he broke the story on the Russian state-sponsored doping scandal.– No room for Goetze –However, Loew’s top concern is whether his captain and goalkeeper Neuer will be fit for the World Cup finals, which kick-off on June 14.The 32-year-old Bayern Munich star has not played for eight months with a fractured foot.He has been named amongst four goalkeepers, one of whom will be cut for the final 23-man squad which must be named by June 4.Neuer must now prove his fitness at a fortnight-long training camp in northern Italy, which starts on Tuesday.“Manuel is getting back into full training this week at Bayern Munich, that assures us that he can tolerate the full load in the training camp,” explained Loew.“Then we want to get a full idea, talk to him frankly and honestly, asking ‘is it possible to play at the World Cup?’”“We have to decide whether Neuer is able to put in his top performances.“I don’t think it is possible to go into a World Cup without playing practice.”There is no place in Loew’s squad for Mario Goetze, who scored the winning goal in the 2014 World Cup finals, after an erratic season at Borussia Dortmund.“It’s definitely not been his season. He has huge qualities, but isn’t in form,” explained Loew.“Personally, I feel sorry for him and it was a hard decision.”– Petersen surprise –However, Loew pulled a surprise by handing a first call-up to Freiburg striker Nils Petersen, 29, the top-scoring German in the Bundesliga this season with 15 goals.Yet there is no place for striker Sandro Wagner, Robert Lewandowski’s back-up at Bayern Munich, who helped Germany win the Conferderations Cup in Russia last year.Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has been called up even though he is currently sidelined by a groin injury.Dortmund winger Marco Reus has a spot in the extended squad after missing out on the victorious 2014 World Cup squad after tearing ankle ligaments in a warm-up game.Germany open their Russia 2018 campaign against Mexico in Moscow on June 17, the defending champions also facing South Korea and Sweden in Group F.Germany squadGoalkeepers: Bernd Leno (Bayer Leverkusen), Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona/ESP), Kevin Trapp (Paris Saint-Germain/FRA)Defenders: Jerome Boateng (Bayern Munich), Matthias Ginter (Borussia Moechengladbach), Jonas Hector (Cologne), Mats Hummels (Bayern Munich), Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich), Marvin Plattenhardt (Hertha Berlin), Antonio Ruediger (Chelsea/ENG) Niklas Suele (Bayern Munich), Jonathan Tah (Bayer Leverkusen)Midfielders/Forwards: Julian Brandt (Bayer Leverkusen), Julian Draxler (Paris Saint-Germain), Mario Gomez (VfB Stuttgart), Leon Goretzka (Schalke 04), Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City/ENG), Sami Khedira (Juventus/ITA), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid/ESP), Thomas Mueller (Bayern Munich), Mesut Ozil (Arsenal/ENG), Nils Petersen (Freiburg), Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund), Sebastian Rudy (Bayern Munich), Leroy Sane (Manchester City/ENG), Timo Werner (RB Leipizg)0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Injured Manuel Neuer was named in Germany’s extended 27-man World Cup squad on Tuesday © dpa/AFP / Ina FassbenderDORTMUND, Germany, May 15 – Injured Manuel Neuer was named in Germany’s extended 27-man World Cup squad for Russia 2018, despite not playing since September, as political frictions threw a shadow over Tuesday’s announcement.Both midfielders Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan are included despite triggering friction between Berlin and Ankara after the Premier League stars posed for pictures with Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in London.last_img read more

Neymar thrilled to be back, at ’80 percent’

first_img0Shares0000Neymar beat multiple defenders before lashing in Brazil’s opening goal midway through the second half © AFP / Oli SCARFFLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Jun 3 – Brazil star Neymar said he was “very happy” to have made a goal-scoring comeback in a 2-0 friendly victory over Croatia on Sunday, but insisted he was only firing at “80 percent”.“It’s been three months that I’ve been injured,” said Neymar, with the World Cup to start in Russia in 10 days. “To come back and do what I love the most, playing football, and furthermore to score a goal, is an immense joy. I’m very happy.”The Paris Saint-Germain forward appeared as a half-time replacement for Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho as the Selecao stepped up their World Cup preparations.And Neymar needed just 23 minutes at Liverpool’s Anfield ground to prove how important he is to Brazil’s hopes of a sixth world title.Receiving a pass from Philippe Coutinho, Neymar cut into the area, beating Sime Vrsaljko and Duje Caleta-Car with impressive close control and dribbling, before burying a shot into the roof of the goal, via the crossbar, from the edge of the six-yard area.But he added: “I still feel a little pain, but that’s normal when you spend so much time not walking.“I feel at 80 percent of my capacity.”After his goal, Neymar made sure to head to the Brazil bench to embrace team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, who operated on his foot fracture three months ago.“It was to thank him. Not only Lasmar, but also Rafa and Rica (his physiotherapist and physical trainer). They’ve been there 24 hours a day with me.“I want to thank all the people who’ve been important for me.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Pan-Africanism ‘to unlock our future’

first_img24 May 2013 Debates by Africans from all walks of life are reaffirming pan-Africanism as a guide to action and the foundation for Africa’s renaissance, African Union Commission chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma said on the eve of the 50th anniversary celebration of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), now the African Union (AU). Addressing the 23rd Ordinary Session of the AU Executive Council in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Thursday, Dlamini Zuma said that, as in May 1963, the eyes of the continent and the world were focused on the deliberations of the continent’s foremost governance body. “Like in 1963 when the founding states took their first steps into political independence, in 2013 we see Africa taking off towards peace and prosperity. Through these celebrations, we will reclaim the African narrative as we reflect on the past, assess our present state and plan our future.” Dlamini Zuma said that, as the AU Executive Council worked on the 50th anniversary proclamation, “we must be mindful of the inputs from our people … We must be mindful of our people’s expectations that we should emerge from this summit, as our founders did in 1963, with a mission that will unite Africa and set her on the path to peace and prosperity.” She expressed optimism that Africa’s natural resources, its unused arable land and water, its potential for energy generation and its long coastlines, rich in marine resources, would be used to achieve the 2063 agenda. The AU Executive Council meeting will provide the framework for the proclamation on the 50th anniversary of the OAU/AU and the implementation of the Africa 2063 vision. The draft proclamation comprises inputs from civil society, including the youth assembly, business forum, women, African editors, and academicians. It frames the African Union’s key objectives for the next five decades around the themes of African identity and renaissance. This includes agendas for integration, for social and economic development and prosperity, for peace and security, for democratic governance, and for self-reliance and Africa’s place in the world. “In each of these areas, the proclamation must spell out the continental mission and strategic objectives for the next 50 years in a bid to help Africa to comprehensively deal with the challenges ahead,” Dlamini Zuma said.

SXSW: Let The Panel Picking Begin!

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Tags:#news#web mike melanson Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… It might be just about the last thing on your mind, but if you haven’t started planning for next year’s South By Southwest Interactive festival down in Austin, Texas, then now’s the time. Why’s that? The 2011 SXSW Panel Picker, the festival’s interactive, crowd-sourced method for choosing the conference’s panels, has opened today and will be accepting entries until early July.The Panel Picker was first used to help select panels for the interactive conference in 2007 and was joined for the first time last year by the music and film conferences, which, according to the company’s press release, resulted in more than 2,800 submissions.Here’s how it works:PanelPicker™ is a two-step online system. Step One encourages the community to submit proposals for programming at SXSW through the PanelPicker™ interface at beginning Tuesday, June 15, 2010 through Friday, July 9, 2010. Additional information including categories, presentation formats, and the new user-generated tags feature built in to PanelPicker™ can be found at Step Two allows the community to browse all of these ideas — and rate which of these proposals they think are the best fit for the March 2011 event. Community voting begins Monday, August 9, 2010 and will continue through Friday, August 27, 2010. While some could be heard grumbling at last year’s SXSWi that the panel picker was at fault for outdated panels, SXSW argues in its FAQ that this method gives attendees time to pre-plan what panels they’ll attend each year. The Panel Picker is also not responsible for choosing 100% of the conference’s content, as several slots are left open until January or February to allow for late-breaking developments. Anyone with access to the Internet can participate in the Panel Picker and public votes account for 30% of the decision-making process, with 30% going to staff votes and 40% to the SXSW advisory board, which is comprised of “experienced industry professionals whose advice and insights about programming and other event-related issues are trusted by the SXSW staff,” according to the FAQ.While the new “user-generated tags” feature is simply a way to help better categorize panels (and not a way to deal with some of the ridiculous hashtags we saw last year), the festival is planning on having a way for panel creators to have input on their session’s hashtag once the title is finalized in the second step of the voting process. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
