District Commissioner Outraged over Lawlessness in Tappita

by ,

first_imgThe Administrative District Commissioner of Doe District located within the Tappita Statutory District, Mr. Samuel Wehyee is outraged over the continued lawlessness within his district.Speaking to the Daily Observer on Monday, he said the acts of lawlessness within his district are posing serious threats to security for both the local authority and the citizens in general.Mr. Wehyee is infuriated over the recent murder of a 25yr old man who was stabbed to death in Dounpa town by his friend identified as Chris Slamiah on January 30th at the football field.Commissioner Wehyee said that on the night of 28th January, the perpetrator, Chris Slamiah and the victim, Dadah Vaye got into a confrontation during a wake keeping and during the argument Dada bit the perpetrator Chris on his face.He narrated that after the confrontation, the matter was taken to the Township Commissioner who sent the wounded person to a clinic for treatment pending an investigation.Commissioner Wehyee explained that while the case was pending until Chris recovered from the bite, Chris took a kitchen knife to the football field where Dadah was playing on Friday January 30th and stabbed Dadah four times in the chest, neck and stomach killing him instantly in retaliation for biting him. “After stabbing his friend to death, he fled into the bushes and was later arrested in a nearby town and taken to the police station in Saclapea,” said the Commissioner.Mr. Wehyee added that immediately after the boy died, his parent went after the parent of the perpetrator to take revenge on any of the family members.He maintained that, during the tension, a house belonging to the perpetrator’s family was broken down and their rice kitchen in their village set ablaze.“In the process, 14 members of the perpetrator’s family fled into the bushes for several days before reporting themselves to authorities in another town which is located far from where the incident occurred.Commissioner Wehyee’s frustration is apparently due to the escalation of killings with impunity in the area.  Those who were involved in killing a man in Zua Town in late November were reportedly released from prison in Sanniquellie.It can be recalled that late last year, a man was tortured to death in Zua Town by a country devil and its followers after the man allegedly broke the town’s rule.Dounpa, where the boy was stabbed to death has a common boundry with Zua Town where the 58 year old man was tortured to death last year.The commissioner explained that the five persons arrested in connection with the torture and killing of the 58 year old man last year were recently seen going about their normal activities after being freed from Sanniquellie jail.He said the wave of lawlessness and killings in the district is causing fear among the citizens and restricting their freedom of movement.“We are afraid with this kind of lawlessness in the district because we do not have any security to accompanying us to the crime scene. There are only nine police officers in a large district like Tappita which comprises four administrative districts including Gbi – Doru. Kparblee, Doe and Boe and Quellah,” he said.“Even as we speak, our local office staffs including the messengers, clerk and other officers, are not on payroll and we cannot press on them,” he concluded.A police source at the Nimba Police Detachment has confirmed the stabbing incident and said that the perpetrator had been transferred to a local police station and is undergoing investigation. But unconfirmed reports reaching this paper said that the perpetrator was severely beaten by mobs upon his arrest.Dounpa and Zua Town in early 2008 were at loggerheads in land disputes during which several citizens were wounded in single barrel gun fights.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

ALFALIT Graduates 60 Tailors

by ,

first_imgALFLIT Liberia Inc. last weekend graduated 60 persons – 59 females and a male – in tailoring after they completed a Skills Training Program that started in 2013 without any significant break in continuity except for the Ebola outbreak in 2014.Since its founding in 2006, ALFALIT has been involved in literacy programs. However, three years ago the entity decided to incorporate the Skills Training Program in response to appeals from students of the literacy program from across the country.After learning to read and write, the students pleaded with ALFALIT for the addition of life skills development that would enhance their acquired literacy and enable them to fully participate in and contribute to the country’s economy.“It was as a result of these appeals that ALFALIT decided to launch ‘Sew and Sell’ as a pilot project,” ALFALIT Program Coordinator Jerome Williams recounted during the graduation ceremony held at the organization’s headquarters in Congo Town. Williams indicated that the request for hands-on skills came out of every literacy intervention in both rural and urban communities. “Literacy skills for adults are almost needless if they are not applied or help to improve the recipient’s standard of living,” he said.As a result of the appeal, Williams said tailoring was chosen in 2013 as an easy and viable business venture needed in all communities.“Sewing is indeed a beneficial skill because a mother could make the outfits for her family members, while at the same time sew and sell to the rest of the community. Tailoring is still effective and useful as an income generating activity. So we think we made no mistake in choosing the skill as the start of this program,” he added.The center, said Williams, operated smoothly with every student accessing a tailoring machine, monthly supplied practice materials and experienced tailors and seamstresses facilitating the learning process.The guest speaker, Etheline Nah, urged the women to be committed to what they have learned. She urged them to be steadfast in their efforts to improve the lives of their family members. ALFALIT’s Executive Director Rev. Emmanuel Giddings said his organization recognizes literacy as an essential first step to any form of further education and provides access to the many programs being offered in the country, which can lead to better health, freedom from abuse, self-sufficiency and an enhanced quality of life.ALFALIT is governed by a Board of Directors comprising ten members – all of whom are Liberian citizens – which is supported and operated by an all-Liberian staff. The organization also provides educational assistance and scholarships to thousands of disadvantaged and marginalized school-aged youth, including high school graduates.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

FINN HARPS SUFFER HEAVY DEFEAT TO SLIGO ROVERS IN PRE-SEASON FRIENDLY

by ,

first_imgFinn Harps unbeaten run during pre-season came to a shuddering halt against Sligo Rovers tonight. Harps suffered a heavy 6-0 defeat to a rampant Sligo Rovers side that stamped their class and authority all over this match from the offset.There has been a growing air of optimism around Finn Park during pre-season, encouraging results and some great signings have signalled Harps intent for a sustained promotion push this term. There’s no doubt they now have the squad capable of doing that despite tonight’s heavy defeat.Ollie Horgan’s charges won’t face a side that contains the quality Sligo have in the First Division.However, there’s no doubt he’ll be disappointed with the result as will the players, but as the old saying goes you learn more from defeat than victory, so maybe the defeat isn’t necessarily the worst thing that could’ve happened Harps.The errors made tonight will be addressed before the real business gets underway at Tolka Park on March 6th. Sligo were 1-0 up at half-time  thanks to a goal from John Russell.Harps battled well without ever gaining any real foothold in the game.They upped the tempo in the second-half and added five more goals in the last thirty minutes through Corcoran, Ward, Cretaro, and a brace from Neilsen.Harps now face local rivals Derry City next weekend, which will be their final match before the First Division campaign begins.FINN HARPS SUFFER HEAVY DEFEAT TO SLIGO ROVERS IN PRE-SEASON FRIENDLY was last modified: February 21st, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:finn harpsnewsPre-seasonSligo RoverssoccerSportlast_img read more

The Bulldogs opened play with a 3-1 victory over Northeastern in the morning, followed by a 3-2 loss to North Florida in the afternoon.Junior Kyla Inderski (Urbandale, Iowa) led the Bulldogs with 38 combined kills in the two matches via a career-high 19 in each match. In the loss to UNF she added 16 digs for a double-double. Veteran setter Chandelle Davidson (Gretna, Neb.) had 52 assists in the two matches while Michelle Thommi (Omaha, Neb.) recorded 35 digs.Drake opened the day by defeating Northeastern, 25-21, 25-19, 18-25, 25-20. Inderski’s 19 kills came on 46 attempts for a .283 attack percentage while Makena Schoene (Seattle, Wash.) added 14 kills. Capris Quaites (Omaha, Neb.) saw her first action in nearly a year due to injury and combined with newcomer Kameo Pope (Belle Plaine, Iowa) to contribute on nine of the Bulldogs’ nine team blocks.The first set against the Huskies featured 11 ties and five lead changes to account for a 17-17 tie before the Bulldogs scored eight of the last 12 points  with a pair of kills from Schoene sealing the set. Drake jumped out to a 10-2 lead in the second set and never let up in leading the rest of way to take the set, 25-19, before Northeastern rallied back in the third set, 25-18. Early in the fourth set, three errors by the Huskies gave Drake an 8-4 lead that quickly expanded to 12-5 courtesy of more errors. NU pulled back within one point until a 4-0 run gave Drake a 23-17 lead that it used to coast to the 25-20 win in the set to take the match, 3-1.Inderski and Schoene led the Bulldogs in the second game of the day with 19 and 13 kills, respectively, while Pope added nine blocks as Drake held a 14.5-11 advantage in blocks in the 20-25, 22-25, 23-25, 26-24, 10-15 loss.

Cormorant Eyes Rapidly Refocus in Dives Into Murky Water

by ,

first_imgYou’re hang gliding over a lake, and you spot a fish below.  From your hovering position, you drop into a rapid, steep dive headfirst into the water.  Whoops; your eyes just went out of focus, and you lost your fish in the murky depths.  Too bad you’re not a cormorant.    Cormorants (a kind of waterfowl) are able to adjust the lenses of their eyes from air-focus to water-focus in a split second, according to an article in Current Biology May 25.1  Four Israeli scientists bedazzle us:Cormorants (Aves; Phalacrocoracidae) are active fliers, yet they forage by pursuit diving and capture of fish with the bill.  In air, the cormorant’s cornea provides most of the total refractive power of the eye.  Underwater, however, corneal power is lost, as the cornea is now bathed in liquids of similar refractive index.  The retention of a sharp image, while performing precise visual tasks underwater, requires that the cormorant’s optical system compensates for the loss of refractive power of the cornea.  In addition, the underwater photic environment differs markedly from the aerial one, with the image quality undergoing a rapid deterioration through scatter and absorption.  Upon submergence, cormorants compensate for the loss of corneal power (>55 dioptres, D) and rapidly (>1000D/sec) attain a state of emmetropia, i.e. they are well focussed, by marked changes in the shape of their very flexible lens.The scientists somehow acquired accurate measurements of the birds’ optical acuity in air and in murky water.  The birds’ vision is as good as that of fish, seals and whales who spend most of their time underwater.  Cormorants, however, need outstanding vision in water as well as air.  “The requirements to perform precise visuo-motor tasks in two optically different media, and the uniqueness of the lenticular system of these birds,” they note with some admiration, ”make the vision of pursuit-diving birds a model of vertebrate capacities at the extreme.”1Strod, Arad, Izhaki and Katzir, “Cormorants keep their power: visual resolution in a pursuit-diving bird under amphibious and turbid conditions,” Current Biology, Vol 14, R376-R377, 25 May 2004.Strod and Arad work at the Hula Valley Nature Preserve in northern Israel; perhaps that is where they made some of the observations.  TV nature programs sometimes show these birds in action.  Next time you see one, you’ll have reason to appreciate even more the elegance of their fishing expertise.    Once again, this excellent intelligent-design paper was marred by a worthless insertion of the E word, probably because Current Darwin-Worship wouldn’t print it otherwise: they conclude, “Low turbidity levels are commonly encountered in natural water bodies and thus are of crucial importance in our understanding of the evolution, sensory ecology, and micro-habitat selection in aquatic organisms.”  This, as usual, means that nobody understands how these optical marvels evolved, but the Darwin Party hopes to some day.  I wonder if the authors really buy that promissory note.  So how many billion cormorants died of starvation till they got their optics right?  Sorry, 990 dioptres per second isn’t good enough; let’s bump it up to 1000 and make sure all the less fit go extinct.  For sure.  We don’t need such evolutionary whistling in the dark.  Cormorants knew the tune from the top, and in the right key, too; see sharp or be flat.(Visited 158 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Operation Hydrate pours on water

by ,

first_imgOperation Hydrate in QwaQwa in the Free State making sure people are hydrated. (Image: Operation Hydrate Facebook)This summer, South Africa is in the grips of the severest drought in 20 years, coupled with one of the harshest heat waves the country has experienced. The towns of Senekal, in Free State, and Aliwal North, in Eastern Cape, for example, have run out of water.In response, Operation Hydrate was established by good Samaritans from various communities, NGOs, religious groups and companies to play their part in saving lives and easing the suffering of thousands of people.The initiative hopes to distribute over a million litres of water to the drought stricken Free State and parts of Eastern Cape.“We have distributed over 350 000 litres of water so far,” said Yaseen Theba, Operation Hydrate’s co-ordinator. “We cannot sit by idly as we watch our fellow South Africans die of thirst. As civil society we have the power to make a difference and help those in need when we unite around a common cause such as this.“The joy on the faces of those who have been receiving drinking water is remarkable and most humbling. Many have not had water for weeks.”South Africa’s farming communities have been the hardest hit by the drought and livestock are suffering and dying, while crops are withering.GOVERNMENT SUPPORTThe portfolio committee on water and sanitation supports Operation Hydrate and views it as a noble initiative that must have the support of society as a whole.It urges everyone, from individuals to big business, to contribute. “It is only through a commitment to mutual action that the country will overcome the current challenge of water scarcity,” said Mlungisi Johnson, the chairperson of the committee.In addition, the committee urged all South Africans to recommit to a culture of prudent water use. This recommitment, coupled with vigilance in relation to water leakages, would ensure that South Africa saved water that was currently being lost.CORPORATE SUPPORTProudly South African has thanked and applauded all the volunteers and donors involved in Operation Hydrate. It also encouraged businesses and corporates to dig deep to support the relief efforts.“At times like these we’re called upon to be of service to humanity and to respond to the basic needs of our people,” said chief executive Lesley Sedibe. “Among these are the promises of a better life and the restoration of (the) dignity of our people, which includes a basic human right such as access to water.“This initiative shows that many South Africans from all walks of life naturally band together to help their fellow countrymen and -women who are in desperate need of assistance. Despite the many challenges we face, Operation Hydrate also shows we are still a people of hope and humanity. Ultimately what unites us is far greater than our differences.”Mango, the low-cost subsidiary of SAA, has contributed to the initiative by giving water to the value of R500 000 for distribution through the initiative.“South Africans have always rolled up their sleeves with immense resolve and this initiative, created entirely through a critical mass on social media, prompted action,” said Mango chief executive Nico Bezuidenhout.“There is no question about the strength of the South African character and as an airline for all the people, Mango was inspired to participate in our usual hands-on fashion and is purchasing water from a percentage of ticket sales this week.”For information about helping or where to drop off water or send donations, visit the Operation Hydrate Facebook page, or follow @HydrateSA on Twitter, #OperationHydrate.Have you played your part to make South Africa better for all?

How Do Objects Connect to the Internet of Things?

by ,

first_imgTags:#Internet of Things#IoT What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Follow the Puck Kenneth Evans is a Content Marketing Strategist for Top App Development Companies, a research platform for top app development companies in the world. He has been contributing to various blogging platforms and Forums. Kenneth Evanscenter_img In 2003: 0.8 devices connected to each person.In 2010: 1.84 devices connected to each person (more than double in only seven years).The appearance of smartphones has been crucial to increasing the number of things that people connect every day. The websites, social networks, also influence the revolution that the internet has brought to our daily routine. These aspects, which today seem so normal, have paved the way to the Internet of Things. They give a foot to sectors that have wanted to add to the technological growth that the Big Data offers them.Automotive, healthcare or logistics have taken giant steps and led the manufacture of everyday “things” that connect with computers at the service of people.But, in the IoT, how does that connection occur?Connection through an IP of the objectsThe objects with which people interact via the Internet have an assigned IP that sends information, data that they provide when using them, to a server. The way in which people relate to these data and benefit from them is to collect them. And the means to do it can be as simple as a Wi-Fi, a Bluetooth, an RFID or a QR code.Another example of this would be the way in which people interact with a SmartTV, uploading documents to the cloud, sending e-mails or publishing on social networks.M2M connectionWhen things connected to the internet talk to themselves, without the intervention of people, it is referred to as Machine to Machine or M2M system. Thanks to the fingerprint we leave with our phones, it is possible that the machines connect to each other. In this way, the Internet of Things improves our lives. The example that best represents this case is that of the Smart Cities.With the data that people share every day, the city councils can foresee jams, regulate the traffic or manage the queues of the public administration. Interesting, right?What is the potential of the Internet of Things?Many of the everyday objects with which people have lived together with have now come alive; smartphones, refrigerators, TV, cars, etc., that is, home automation in general.Personalization and individualizationThe IoT offers people an individual tour for each one. It allows people to personalize those devices, things or everyday objects so that it can give them the use that they are interested in.The Internet of Things allows an exclusive and personalized use of the everyday devices that people use and that are connected to the Internet.Currently, there is talk that only 1% of the things people interact with on a daily basis are connected to the internet. Can you imagine a world in which 100% of your interactions were digital?Differentiation of competition and product improvementBecause the internet of things allows us to personalize the product as users, as a brand, we can differentiate ourselves from the competition.The technological advance gives access to incorporate in our products the novel and current details that make possible our positioning as leaders of the sector in which we are present.We can process the data offered by the devices connected to the internet, with them, we have the privilege of anticipating the needs of users and win new customers.As a consequence, applying a cost reduction is at our fingertips, since the efforts in the improvement of our products are aligned with the real needs of our target.Now, look at the number of objects that surround us, for example at home: refrigerator, TV, washing machine, alarm, heating regulator and air conditioning. Do you imagine them all connected to you and each other?By 2020 this figure of connected devices is expected to increase to 22 billion, and by 2030 it is estimated that 30 billion objects will be connected to the internet.What do you think of the figures?Do you see them as possible or do the experts fall short?The Internet of Things and CybersecurityEverything that is connected to the internet is vulnerable to being hacked. Therefore, the IoT opens an extensive field of technological devices exposed to cyber attacks. The Internet of things brings us many advantages, as we are seeing, but it also carries risks.Are we prepared to preserve the security of an avalanche of devices connected to the Internet?Can you imagine the repercussions and gravity of a cyber attack on a hospital database?The challenge of Cybersecurity Cybersecurity faces three main challenges within companies:Companies must review their security protocols.New professional profiles are required that adjust to the demands of the cybernetic openness of the Internet of things.Increase the connectivity capacity of the servers.Perhaps these three routes also require a change in the use of information, for example, enhancing Cloud Computing.The risks of the Internet of ThingsThe use of our smartphones or PCs leaves a trail of activity. The connection of our appliances or our servers generates some records that make us exposed to hackers. Some of these risks are known, and we have even suffered, others are even to invent.For example:Phishing: identity theft or impersonationSecret hearingsAttacks DDos: denial of servicesTheft of passwordsMalwareThe Internet of Things has been a trend in previous years and will be the ones that come. And with it, hand in hand, also cybersecurity. Efforts must be invested in it so that it is understood in the process of continuous improvement. This is because we cannot afford the luxury of the first advance faster than the second.Examples of how we apply the Internet of Things todaySmart CitiesHow do you conceive of living in a house technologically evolved and digitally transformed outside of an environment that is not reciprocal? Has no sense. This is where the concept of Smart City appears within the global idea of the Internet of Things.It contemplates digitizing aspects such as:Transportation: making them more efficient and less polluting.Energy: reducing your consumption.Health: avoiding waiting in hospitals and optimizing the prevention of diseases.What we can expect as citizens of such a space are sustainability, low pollution, efficiency and that digitization is at the service of people to make our lives better. A great example is the already approved Paris Smart City 2050 project.It is the first European city to design an area in which they plan to build bioclimatic buildings. It intends to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 75%.The DataLong 16The DataLong 16 is a clear example of how the Internet of things can be applied to logistics, improving the transport of food or health products. It is a small device, a datalogger, which can offer, in real time, the temperature of the product transported and its location.The monitoring of the data sent via the Internet allows controlling, for example, the temperature of pharmaceutical products that require the preservation of the cold chain to avoid deterioration.In the field of food, the DL16 is essential to keep food fresh for human consumption during the logistics chain.Apple Watch applied to healthOne of the challenges of the Internet of Things in the area of health is to seek better strategic solutions to cope with chronic diseases. Apple’s smart watch is being used or to be used by the most vulnerable patients, so that they are always controlled by their caregivers.Feedback occurs in which the watch emits alarms, reminders or advice to the patient, related to the habits that the patient must acquire.In this way, an intelligent watch improves the lives of these people. Not only is there the participation of the Apple Watch. The data they obtain is evaluated and helps to build better diagnostic models for cardiovascular diseases or even Parkinson’s.
