VP Condemns Students Becoming ‘Breadwinners’

Posted on by

first_imgVice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai, Sr., has expressed resentment about the way and manner in which the youths that supposed to be in schools are nowadays being used as ‘breadwinners’ for other family members. The Vice President’s comment was contained in a statement delivered on his behalf over the weekend by his Chief of Office Staff, Sam Stevequoah, at the official program of the F. SHAM of Faith Girls Academy ‘Open House’ in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.The school is transforming an all girls school into a high-technology institution with two well-equipped modern computer laboratories. According to Mr. Stevequoah, one of the surest ways to ensure a bright future for the youths is to invest in their education, rather than use them to sell in the street corners, thereby reducing them to becoming the breadwinners.  Mr. Stevequoah, who proxied for the Vice President at the occasion, maintained that investment in the education of the youths is one means to secure their future for the better. The F.SHAM is an acronym of four outstanding Liberian ladies, in partnership for quality education with the Foundation for Women, founded and headed by the FW CEO, Ms. Deborah Lindholm. F-SHAM offers a basic educational program for Girls, which provides the foundation for continuous and lifelong learning for sustenance, particularly in the area of sciences. The vision, according to the principal, Madam Sarah K. Taylor, is to provide among other things a unique opportunity for the students (all girls) to have sound Christian education, and prepare them for good citizenship. The mission is to aid students (all girls) educationally in their growth towards full maturity.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Giannis Scores 41, Leads Bucks to Sweep of Detroit

Posted on by

first_imgDETROIT (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo drove to the basket and drew yet another foul, this one a hard hack on the arm by Blake Griffin.Griffin fouled out and headed to the bench, and the home crowd gave him a standing ovation. Then many fans headed toward the exits.Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks were on their way to another rout against Detroit.Antetokounmpo scored 41 points, and the Bucks beat Detroit 127-104 on Monday night, completing a four-game sweep of the Pistons and advancing to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2001. The last time Milwaukee won a postseason series, the Bucks made it all the way to the conference finals. This year’s team isn’t there yet, but so far Milwaukee looks the part of the top seed in the East.“I remember our first playoff series (in 2015),” Antetokounmpo said. “Chicago, the last game, Game 6, they beat us by 50 or something insane. But where we were and where we are right now, it’s been an unbelievable journey.”Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin (23) attempts a layup as Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (34) defends during the second half of Game 4 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series, Monday, April 22, 2019, in Detroit. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)Milwaukee closed the third quarter with a 17-3 run, taking a 10-point lead into the fourth after the Pistons had led much of the way. Detroit set an NBA record with its 14th consecutive playoff loss, a skid that began in 2008.The Bucks will face Boston in the second round. The Celtics are coming off a sweep of their own against Indiana.“I think it’s important that we take a second tonight. Enjoy it,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “It’s a good night for Milwaukee. It’s a good night for the Bucks.”Reggie Jackson scored 20 of his 26 points in the first half for Detroit. Griffin fouled out with 7:06 remaining after scoring 22. Griffin missed the first two games of the series with knee problems.“Blake played his heart out with basically one leg,” said Pistons coach Dwane Casey, whose voice was hoarse at his postgame news conference. “He fought through a lot of pain, swelling.”Griffin was on the bench for much of Milwaukee’s crucial run. He sat for the final 4:35 of the third. Antetokounmpo scored 16 points in that quarter, half of which came on free throws.Detroit led 20-8 early on after a dunk by Griffin. The Pistons were up 62-56 at halftime but still couldn’t prevent a fourth straight blowout at the hands of the team that had the NBA’s best regular-season record. Milwaukee won the four games by a total of 95 points, and no game was closer than 16.TIP-INSReferee Tony Brown (6) keeps Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin (23) and Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo apart during the first half of Game 4 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series, Monday, April 22, 2019, in Detroit. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)Bucks: Malcolm Brogdon remains out because of a right foot injury, but Budenholzer said he might have a better sense in the next 3-5 days about a timetable for his availability. … The Bucks won every game they played against Detroit this season, including all four in the regular season. … Milwaukee had not swept a best-of-7 series since the 1983 conference semifinals against Boston.Pistons: Detroit’s most recent postseason victory was May 26, 2008, in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals against Boston. The New York Knicks lost 13 straight playoff games from 2001-2012, but the Pistons have now eclipsed that mark.TO THE LINEMilwaukee went 31 of 41 on free throws, while Detroit was only 9 of 12. Casey was called for a technical foul in the third, and the fans weren’t at all pleased with the officiating.At one point, Milwaukee had a 32-8 edge in free throw attempts. A stat showing that was put on the main video board, but there didn’t seem to be any further reaction from the crowd.“Giannis shooting eight more free throws than our entire team — you’re not going to win a game like that,” Griffin said. “And their team shooting 41 — you’re not going to win a game like that. … Some of that’s on us.”BLOCK PARTYDetroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin walks to the bench after fouling out during the second half of Game 4 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks, Monday, April 22, 2019, in Detroit. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)The Bucks outscored the Pistons 62-42 in the paint and finished with 10 blocked shots to Detroit’s one. Brook Lopez had five blocks and Antetokounmpo had four, including one on Ish Smith that looked more like a volleyball spike .OWNER SPEAKSPistons owner Tom Gores was courtside at the game. This was the team’s second playoff appearance since he took over and the first at Detroit’s downtown arena.“It’s just the beginning of what we can do here,” Gores said. “Dwane and I and the team accomplished a goal by getting in the playoffs. We’re not happy with the way it ended.”UP NEXTThe Bucks move on to face the Celtics, who knocked Milwaukee out of the playoffs in seven games last year.___By NOAH TRISTER AP Sports WriterMilwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (34) shoots as Detroit Pistons guard Langston Galloway (9) defends during the second half of Game 4 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series, Monday, April 22, 2019, in Detroit.

Iskcon invites ‘inclusive’ Nusrat Jahan as special guest for Rathayatra. She says thanks

Posted on by

first_imgNewly elected TMC MP and actor Nusrat Jahan whose stand on religion and inclusiveness is “in sync” with the Iskcon’s spirit of “social harmony”, has been invited as a special guest at the inauguration ceremony of the Kolkata ISKCON Rathayatra on Thursday.Thanking Nusrat Jahan for accepting the invitation, Iskcon spokesperson Radharaman Das said, the actor represented an “all inclusive India” and was “really showing the road forward”.The 48th edition of the Rathayatra organised by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (Iskcon) since 1971, will be inaugurated by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.Nusrat Jahan, who got married to a Kolkata-based businessman and was heavily trolled for wearing vermilion and sporting a ‘mangalsutra’ at her oath-taking ceremony, had said, she represents an “inclusive India… which is beyond the barriers of caste, creed and religion.”The actor and her husband will be present at the inauguration ceremony along with other film stars.”Nusarat Jahan represents new India… an all-inclusive India. Respect for others religious beliefs and participation in their festivities will make India great again. This is what India stands for and youth like Nusarat Jahan are showing the path forward,” Das told PTI.”A society where there is freedom for all to choose responsibly is a happy society. That freedom has been given by God to all. So, we the people should not be one to snatch that freedom from anyone,” he added.In a tweet, Das had earlier said: “Thank you @nusratchirps for accepting the Rathayatra invitation. You are really showing the road forward.”advertisement”Iskcon Kolkata Rathayatra is example of that social harmony where the Lord’s chariots are also built by our Muslim brothers. Some of the most beautiful Lords dresses are also made by our Muslim brothers & they are doing it for decades in some of our temples,” Das had said.In a video released on Monday evening, the actor congratulated Iskcon for organising the Rathayatra and asked the residents of the city to join her at the inauguration and be with her through the celebrations.Refusing to toe the line of hardline Muslim clerics who had criticised her, the first-time MP from West Bengal’s Basirhat had said, “… I still remain a Muslim… And none should comment on what I choose to wear… Faith is beyond attire.”A section of Deoband-based clerics have reportedly issued a ‘fatwa’ (diktat) against the Trinamool Congress lawmaker.Supporting the actor, Das said fundamentalism and manufactured supremacy must be condemned.”Everyone has the freedom to preach and others have the freedom to accept it or reject it. All kinds of fundamentalism and manufactured supremacy should be condemned. God preaches love for all,” Das said.”This is what the festival of Rathayatra represents. The lord comes out to bless everyone and not only Hindus,” Das added.This year’s yatra will highlight the condition of senior citizens who spend their lives away from family members at old age homes, Das said.Starting from the city’s Hungerford Street opposite the Iskcon temple at Albert Road, the yatra will move through important thoroughfares of the city to reach Brigade Parade Grounds, where arrangements have been made for the people to have a special darshan of Lord Jagannath till July 11.Groups of devotees from south India will be present in front of the three chariots to make street art with organic ‘gulals’.Internationally famous ‘kirtaniyas’ will render ‘kirtans’ (devotional songs) to the accompaniment of drums and ‘kartals’ (percussion instrument) during the yatra.The ‘Ultarathayatra’ will start on July 12 noon when the chariots will return to the Albert Road temple.READ | Politicians support TMC MP Nusrat Jahan after fatwa issued over her sindoor, marriage to non-MuslimWATCH | I represent inclusive India, says Nusrat Jahan who was slammed for wearing saree, sindoorlast_img read more

Chasing a mammoth total of 182, KKR had lost opener Chris Lynn early but local stars Nitish Rana and Robin Uthappa stitched a 80-run stand for the second wicket.However, the asking rate kept climbing steeply and KKR’s chances took a blow when they lost captain Dinesh Karthik and Rana in quick succession.When a successful chase seemed improbable, Russell stepped in and took the game away from SRH by blasting a 19-ball 49, which included four sixes and as many boundaries. The Knight Riders star showed little respect to some of the established SRH bowlers, including their captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar, as he took them to the cleaners, much to the delight of the Eden Gardens crowd.”@Russell12A said to me that he was so overwhelmed with the welcome fans gave him, that he wanted to cry.

Albertan who posed as US veteran on Nov 11 guilty of unlawful

Posted on by

first_imgRED DEER, Alta. – A man who posed as a U.S. Marine veteran during Remembrance Day ceremonies in central Alberta has pleaded guilty to unlawful use of military uniforms and medals.A third charge against Peter Toth, 59, was dropped.Toth was sentenced Wednesday in Red Deer to 18 months of probation and 200 hours of community service.Court heard that he has since destroyed the uniform and military decorations.His lawyer said Toth has struggled with depression, understands that what he did was wrong and feels remorse.Last November a group called Stolen Valour Canada began looking into a report of a man claiming to be a former U.S. Marine who attended ceremonies on Nov. 11 at schools in Red Deer.A picture taken at one event shows Toth dressed in a desert camouflage uniform festooned with military medals and ribbons.Stolen Valour officials said he was wearing rank badges in the wrong place, incorrect insignia and claimed to have been wounded in Afghanistan in 2005 despite saying he had retired from the military in 1985.Outside court, Gord Swaitkewich, a former soldier who is a spokesman for Stolen Valour Canada, said justice has been served.“It was a little bit of a process but any win is a win,” Swaitkewich said.Swaitkewich said his next order of business is to get the veterans license plate from Toth’s vehicle removed.“He is not a veteran, he has no legal right to have that plate.”Robert Dale, a retired sergeant, said he was also gratified with how the case turned out.“We’re not going to stand by for somebody stealing valour from our fallen,” Dale said.“He claimed he was in Afghanistan? We lost 185 people in Afghanistan and for him to do what he did is like him desecrating their graves and we’re not going to stand for it.”Dale said they hope the publicity of Toth’s case will send a message to the public that soldiers deserve respect.
