Bad Road Hampers Trade at Loguatuo Port

first_imgA bad road is said to be hampering trade at the Loguatuo port of Entry around the Liberia – Côte d’Ivoire borderThe piece of road linking Karnplay to the port is very deplorable and may certainly collapse if nothing is done urgently.In an interview with the Township Commissioner of Kpateahplay, Mr. H. Womenpea Sandi, told this paper that the present condition of the road is not good. However, he praised the government and its development partners for constructing a major part of the road, which links Sanniquellie and Karnplay.He added that Loguatuo is strategically located and it is one of the busiest rural ports in Liberia where a high percentage of reveue is  collected.Recently, when the Nimba Correspondent visited Loguatuo, it was observed that the entire road had been eroded with some of the bridges in very poor condition.When the UN was repatriating returning Liberians from La Côte d’Ivoire some years ago, The UN High Commission of Refugees rehabilitated the road from Bahn to Loguatuo.The road was also constantly in good condition and maintain by the UNMIL Engineering Battalion, when UNMIL officers were present at the border post.The withdrawal of UNMIL forces from Loguatuo over a year ago has left the road bad, hampering movement.In other developments, the police and immigration barracks project undertaken by the Justice Ministry has almost been completed and is awaiting dedication, Commissioner Sandi has said.The barracks will host the police and BIN security assigned along that bordering town to provide security, since the drawdown of UNMIL has left a security vacuum at the lucrative border port.The Loguatuo Port of entry is located north of Karnplay, also on the border. It is one the leading custom collectorates in Liberia.It is a rural port where plastic goods, agriculture products as well as livestock and cattle enter the country.The collapsing of the road may likely hamper the already fragile Liberian economy.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Fort St. John Council drops property tax rates

first_imgEven with the tax rate decrease, that doesn’t necessarily mean your property taxes will drop. In January the B.C. Assessment Office said the assessed value of properties in Fort St. John increased by 8.8 per cent. The average single family residential property increased from $320,000 to $348,000.Tax bills will be generated once the bylaw is adopted in May and the City receives the school tax rate from the province. The 2014 Tax Rate Bylaw was given first three readings at Monday’s city council meeting.The residential tax rate will drop to 5.1888 from 5.2261 for 2013, while the business tax rate will go from 14.7037 to 14.5986 in 2014.The light industrial tax rate will go from 26.4928 in 2013 to 26.3034 in 2014, while major industrial will go from 29.0013 to 28.7940.- Advertisement -Properties classified as recreation will also see a drop from 11.0151 to 10.9363.Lastly, the farm rate will see the biggest drop from 14.3865 to 1.5566. As of the last assessment, there were no properties in Fort St. John designated as farm. In 2013, Council also changed the tax ratio for the farm class, so if there ever is a farm property in the City, those properties would face less of a tax burden.Utilities remain unchanged at 40.00.Advertisementlast_img read more

Harambee Stars full house in Bahir Dar

first_img0Shares0000Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne passes on instructions before a training session at the Bahir Dar Stadium in EthjiopiaNAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 8 – Skipper Victor Wanyama led a host of 12 other foreign based players who touched down in bahir, Dar, Ethiopia on Monday ahead of Wednesday’s crucial 2019 African Cup of Nations Qualifier against the Walya Antelopes.Wanyama who missed last month’s 1-0 home win against Ghana at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani as he had just returned from injury was the first to arrive alongside Kazakhstan based Paul Were while they rest joined on later with Japan-based Michael Olunga also arriving after a long flight. The first group which included five local based players and the coaching team arrived in Ethiopia Saturday with the final group of local based players who were involved in Sunday’s Kenyan Premier League matches travelling Monday morning.Apart from Wanyama, head coach Sebastien Migne will also have defender Brian Mandela back after serving his one match suspension and he is expected to be a direct swap for Gor Mahia’s Joash Onyango who was red carded against Ghana.Meanwhile, Sierra Leone who are currently under a ban by FIFA following government interference might be reinstated after a meeting involving the Isha Johansen-led federation, sports ministry and the country’s President earlier today.Johanse had been ousted as the country’s FA by the government attracting wrath from FIFA, but Monday evening’s meeting might resolve the impasse.Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama with teammates before a training session at the Bahir Dar Stadium in EthiopiaAll teams in Group F are currently on three points, that is if the FIFA ban will be reversed. If the ban is upheld, then Ethiopia will lose the three points they picked last month meaning they will be on zero points.Kenya has three and a ban on Sierra Leone will mean the 2-1 loss they suffered in the opening match day will count for nothing.Nonetheless, Migne and his charges say they minimum target in the back to back ties against Ethiopia is four points, results that will put them firmly in contention for a place in next year’s Cup of Nations in Cameroon.Harambee Stars Full SquadGoalkeepersFarouk Shikalo (Bandari, Kenya), Patrick Matasi (Tusker, Kenya)DefendersPhilemon Otieno (Gor Mahia, Kenya), Benard Ochieng (Vihiga United, Kenya), Musa Mohammed (Nkana FC, Zambia), Brian Mandela (Maritzburg FC, South Africa), Abud Omar (Cercle Brugge, Belgium), David Ochieng (IF Brommapojkarna, Sweden), Erick Ouma (Vasalund, Sweden)MidfieldersDennis Odhiambo (Sofapaka, Kenya), Francis Kahata (Gor Mahia, Kenya), Abdallah Hassan (Bandari, Kenya), Ismael Gonzales (Las Palmas, Spain), Victor Wanyama (Tottenham Hotspurs, England), Anthony Akumu (Zesco United, Zambia), Johanna Omollo (Cercle Brugge, Belgium), Paul Were (FC Kaisar, Kazakhstan), Erick Johanna (IF Brommapojkarna)ForwardsPiston Mutamba (Sofapaka), Allan Wanga (Kakamega Homeboyz), Michael Olunga (Kashiwa Reysol), Ovella Ochieng (Vasalund)0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Property razed without permits

first_img“They were taking out some old mobile units and they hadn’t gotten permits,” Chi said. Now, the park, at 3053 San Gabriel Blvd., remains uninhabitable after its trailers were demolished and removed. Only concrete slabs, three abandoned buildings, soccer balls, ice chests and other garbage remain on the property. Property manager Arnold Sei would not comment on the project. Brian Saeki, community redevelopment director, said that a permit is required for any demolition, and that the city has not issued a permit for the property. It has also not received any site plans for construction, he said. • Photo Gallery: Abandoned mobile home parkROSEMEAD – Concrete slabs, abandoned buildings and trash are all that remain on a vacant trailer park that was leveled in recent weeks. But city officials said that the demolition was pursued without the proper permits. City Manager Oliver Chi said the city’s code enforcement stopped demolition earlier this month of a trailer park at the northwest corner of Garvey and San Gabriel boulevards. Nearby residents at the Trade Winds Mobile Estates said that demolition at 3053 San Gabriel Blvd. has been ongoing the past few weeks. A sign hangs on the site, boasting 50,000 to 200,000 square-feet of property is available for lease. There are nearly a dozen mobile home and trailer parks in the city. Relocating mobile home and trailer park residents to affordable housing is a lengthy and expensive process that is regulated by the state. As developers continue to show interest in the properties, some park residents wonder if it will be just a matter of time before they too are forced from their homes. Theresa Molina watered her plants Monday recalling the different offers developers have made on the trailer park site where she’s been manager for 17 years. With each offer, including an $8 million purchase price, the owner of the Paradise Trailer Park at 8069 Garvey Blvd. has said no. “The owner was very, very angry,” Molina said. “He has said he won’t sell.” Nearly 75 families live in the park. “I hope they won’t sell,” said Christian Trejo, 21, who has lived at Paradise Trailer Park all his life. “Our budget is not that much, and I don’t know where we’d go.” (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2477160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgDavid Mackay scored St Johnstone’s first Clydesdale Bank Premier League goal of the season to give the Perth men a 1-0 win over Celtic.Peter Enckelman saved Kris Commons’ penalty after three minutes and the Saints keeper went on to enjoy a fine afternoon with a string of impressive saves.Mackay’s deflected shot on the hour mark sealed a miserable day for the Parkhead side who hit the woodwork through Commons and substitute Paddy McCourt. Celtic had the chance to take the lead in the third minute when they were awarded a penalty by referee Brian Winter after he adjudged Enckelman to have up-ended Anthony Stokes in the box. The Saints goalkeeper made up for his transgression, however, by diving to his right to save Commons’ spot-kick.Celtic shrugged off the missed opportunity to pin St Johnstone back and Stokes drilled an angled-shot past the far post after working some space for himself inside the Saints’ box.When Saints midfielder Murray Davidson fouled Ki Sung-yueng 25 yards out, Commons struck the post with his flighted free-kick.Celtic were getting closer and had another chance a minute from the break when Stokes was slipped in by Joe Ledley but Enckelman dived at his feet to make a crucial save and keep the visitors on level terms going in to the second half. Hoops keeper Fraser Forster made a decent block from Jody Morris’ drive but on the hour mark the visitors took a sensational lead. When Liam Craig’s ball from the left arrived at Mackay at the far side of the box, the Saints defender drilled the ball towards goal and it appeared to take a nick off Murray Davidson before speeding past Forster.McCourt came on for Commons to provide some much-needed inspiration but the anxiety which had gripped Celtic Park and the home defence looked like helping Saints grab their second.The Parkhead men stepped up the pressure though, and McCourt side-footed a shot against the post after weaving his way in to the St Johnstone box before Enckelman made another good save from a Stokes header.Lennon was perplexed by Commons’ sideways run-up to take his penalty. “I don’t understand why he shaped up to take it that way because when he practises in training he has a totally different run-up,” he said.“He has taken two steps to the right and I don’t know why and he’s slipped when he has take it. It was a pretty poor penalty to be fair.” Meanwhile Paddy McCourt has been linked with a move to Liverpool.CELTIC: Forster, Matthews, Wanyama, Majstorovic, Mulgrew (Mark Wilson 46), Commons (McCourt 61), Brown, Ki, Ledley (Forrest 74), Maloney, Stokes.

SA to host African Gymnastics Champs

first_img16 January 2014 South Africa’s leading gymnasts will take on the continent’s best when the University of Pretoria hosts the 12th African Gymnastics Championships from 25 March to 4 April. Both men and women will compete in the artistic competition, while the women will also contest the rhythmic disciplines. Much will be expected of Cameron MacKenzie and Kirsten Beckett, who will be at the forefront of the South African team’s challenge.‘A welcome shot in the arm’ After spending a decade abroad, MacKenzie provided South African gymnastics with a welcome shot in the arm when he returned from the United Kingdom in October, having represented Great Britain at junior and senior level. He was a member of the Huntingdon Club, which also produced Olympic medal winners Louis Smith, Daniel Keatings and Sam OldhamAchievements MacKenzie’s list of achievements includes representing Britain at the World School Games in Qatar in 2009 and being part of the Great Britain National Gymnastics squad that won team gold at the Junior European Championships in 2010. That same year he won gold in the Junior Men’s All-Around at the Bumbo Cup in South Africa. More recently, in 2013, MacKenzie placed sixth in the Senior Men’s All-Around at the British Championships in Liverpool.Commonwealth Games places In the South African artistic trials last year, he confirmed his pedigree by finishing first in the all-round competition. After also excelling in the apparatus finals he secured a place in the South African team for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, along with Tiaan Olivier, Kirsten Beckett and Claude Cummings. MacKenzie’s UK coach Paul Hall has been signed up to help with a training plan for the both the South African junior and senior men’s artistic gymnastics teams. Kirsten Beckett Beckett, aged 17, first competed outside of Africa in 2008. Last year, in the International Gymnastics Magazine, John Crumlish wrote: “Beckett’s achievements in 2012 continue the momentum generated by South African teammate [and 2010 Commonwealth Games silver medal winner in the vault] Jennifer Khwela earlier in the Olympic cycle”. In 2013, Beckett was South Africa’s top performer in her first visit to the World Championships. She is ranked ninth on the floor in the latest International Gymnastics Federation world rankings, up from 24th in 2012. She is also ranked 12th on the vault, and 49th on the uneven bars.Revival Gymnastics South Africa is aiming to use the African Championships to help spearhead a revival of the country’s international fortunes, which peaked in 1998 at the Commonwealth Games when Simon Hutcheon won gold in the men’s vault, Christian Brezeanu captured silver in the vault and on the floor, and Athol Myhill won bronze on the rings.Support To show your support for Gymnastics South Africa, visit the 12th African Gymnastics Championships pages on Facebook and Twitter.

CISPA Passes House, But Privacy Concerns May Still Sink It

first_img7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… nick statt Tags:#CISPA#cybersecurity#Obama administration How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? Related Posts center_img Why You Love Online Quizzes The House of Representatives has once again passed CISPA, the cybersecurity bill that lets companies and the federal government monitor and share your online communication without a warrant. But its fate in the Democrat-controlled Senate is much less clear, particularly now that President Obama has threatened a veto.House lawmakers voted 288-to-127 in favor of the bill, while 18 abstained. Alarms are now rippling through the civil liberty advocate and Internet activism communities, especially since the bill garnered more supporters than it did last year.The bill was approved last week without four privacy amendments that would have limited the ability of the NSA to collect personal data from private-sector companies like ISPs, email providers and social-media outfits. The failure of these amendments in committee led President Obama on Monday to publicly threaten a veto:The Administration, however, remains concerned that the bill does not require private entities to take reasonable steps to remove irrelevant personal information when sending cybersecurity data to the government or other private sector entities.Last year, opponents of the overreaching SOPA copyright bill included an unusually unified coalition of Internet companies. CISPA’s critics haven’t been so fortunate. AT&T, Comcast, EMC, IBM, Intel, McAfee, Oracle, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon have all signed on as supporters. But tech giants Facebook and Microsoft have stepped back from their support. Google has not taken a position. The weight now falls to the Senate, which will have to consider ways to amend the bill in order to sidestep President Obama’s veto threat. Last year, CISPA died in the Senate over similar privacy concerns under the shadow of a veto threat. Growing Phone Scams: 5 Tips To Avoidlast_img read more

Smartphone Filmmaking: Saving Battery Life and Storage Space

first_imgSmartphones are incredibly useful for documentary filmmakers, but how can you keep shooting with limited battery life and storage space?Top Image via Photo-Nic.Smartphones are becoming more serious contenders in documentary filmmaking with each new iteration. They’re small, lightweight, and packed with tons of useful features — and most newer models can record in 4K.There are also plenty of rigs, apps, lenses, and adapters for smartphone filmmakers. The Helium Core, for example, is a chassis for customizing your iPhone camera rig. Combined with Moondog Labs lenses, the end result is very appealing and costs only a fraction of a DSLR rig. Take a look at the results.However, there are a few challenges to using a smartphone as a primary camera for a documentary shoot. Specifically, how do you preserve battery life and storage space? With some preparation and few tweaks to your production schedule, you can address these limitations.1. Clearing Storage Space on Your SmartphoneImage via Saulo Mohana.Back up and clear existing photos and videosThe day before any shoot, I’ll back up all of my photos and videos on an external hard drive to clear as much space as possible for my incoming media. My primary smartphone camera is my 128 GB iPhone 6s Plus. At any given time, I have close to twenty GBs of photos and videos that I clear regularly before filming. That’s about 15 percent of total storage space, or about an hour of 4K video.So I generally make it a habit to free that space up for incoming media — you should too.Clearing nonessential appsThis is completely optional, and it really depends on your available storage space. However, if I’m prepping for an intense shoot, I’ll take some time to clear any nonessential apps from my phone, especially if I don’t use them regularly. 2. Preserve Battery Life with a Portable ChargerPortable chargers are essential for smartphone filmmakers. I usually like to have at least two chargers on set. By bringing two, I can always have one on the camera and one charging, allowing me to film constantly. I personally use the Zendure A2 Portable Charger, but there are plenty of battery packs out there, ranging from cheap to very expensive. 3. Carry a Laptop and External Hard DriveImage via Radek Grzybowski.While some Androids will allow you to capture media on MicroSD, the iPhone captures media internally. This means that once we fill the library, we can’t remove the phone’s memory, so we’ll need to dump the media. Bring a laptop and an external hard drive with you to the shoot. (If you’re shooting on MicroSD, don’t forget an adapter.)I like to have two smartphones on set, so I can continue shooting without stopping for fifteen minutes to dump media.With the iPhone 6s Plus, simple shoots only require a single media dump. The iPhone has insanely efficient media storage. Here are the estimated numbers that I pulled based on technical specs provided by Apple (and assuming marginal space reserved for essential apps and iOS). 1080p at 30 fps  3 Hours 50 Minutes16 Hours 10 Minutes32 Hours 30 Minutes What smartphone gear do you use?

Record Interviews Ahead of TimeIf you’re forced to record the interviews and B-roll together (e.g., talent has limited time), don’t record a full interview. It will take up a massive amount of space on your phone. You can pre-record the talent’s voiceover, then craft the story and create a shot list. Pro-tip: Use your voice memo app to record your talent’s audio, then cover the voiceover with your B-roll.Bonus: Gear and AppsHere’s a look behind the scenes of a short film I shot on an iPhone 5c.

I’ve been in the championship parade as well as being down 30 in ‘Q Arena.’ So, I’ve heard it all. It’s just good to be there and hoop against a great team like the Cavs.”The four-time All Star also once again thanked the entire city of Cleveland for his time, despite the circumstances surrounding his departure.ADVERTISEMENT Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa MOST READ Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF presidentlast_img read more
