We are no more the way we used to be. There will come a time that you and I will die. If death is the end of the human story, then life in Christ makes all the difference. If you have a faithful relationship with Jesus Christ, it will make a difference in your life,” said Rev.

She was laid to rest in Haindii, her home town, in Bong County.Mrs. Suakweli, was popularly known as ‘Normal Days’ to the  motorcyclists in her community,  her friends, the youth, and many others across Liberia, because of her pastry business and  for constantly reminding everyone about the standards, values and good upbringing of the pre-war years referred to as ‘normal days’.  She was the eldest child of Pastor Ezra Dahn Keller, Sr., first bishop of the Lutheran Church in Liberia, and Mrs. Louise Keller, both of whom predeceased her.

She faced her pastors and congregation when given the opportunity and told them what they did that hurt her feelings right in the church. At the end, they accepted and reconciled.”last_img read more

Downtown Glam

first_imgCOMPLETE FASHION WEEK COVERAGEJared Gold’s show brought eccentricity to Downtown Friday night, but Eduardo Lucero’s show last night was all about glam. As the other marquee name on BOXeight Fashion’s roster, Lucero delivered a sexy collection that was clearly inspired by the future (LED-scrolling earrings, lots of metallics). There were a few simple shift dresses matched with sequin underlay that we could have went without, but his gowns and party dresses reminded everyone why he puts on a show in the first place. “Ugly Betty” star Ana Ortiz sat in the front row signaling her favorite picks to a friend across the runway she held her index finger up and mouthed “that’s my number one pick” to a strappy eggplant dress with a plunging back. Jenna Jameson, who was looking surprisingly demure in a cr?me babydoll dress and escorted by UFC star Tito Ortiz, nodded in approval when a short, gold and silver metallic dress strutted by. Since time and flexibility were some of the reasons Lucero opted to show outside of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, BOXeight’s alternative provided a decent outlet for the designer; the show managed to commence with very little chaos and there was plenty of space. We’re all about reviving the Downtown scene, and so far, BOXeight’s efforts have been a good start. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Schedulers are against us, says Wenger

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says his team were unlucky to lose against Manchester United after playing wellWEST BROMWICH, United Kingdom, Jan 1 – Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hit out at the Premier League fixture schedulers who he claims have handed Chelsea a pre-match advantage ahead of their London derby on Wednesday.Wenger launched a tirade against the fixture list and the standard of Premier League refereeing after his side were held to a 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion, with even Gunners legend Thierry Henry coming under fire from the Frenchman. Wenger broke Sir Alex Ferguson’s record of 810 Premier League games as a manager but he was in no mood to celebrate as he looked ahead to his side’s next game.“You cannot give West Brom five days to prepare for a game like that when we have three,” said Wenger.“I am ready to play every day as long as our opponent has played the same time recovery over Christmas. It is not normal.“We have the same problem against Chelsea. They played yesterday, we played today, they have one day more again.”A late penalty from Jay Rodriguez rescued a draw for West Brom after Calum Chambers was penalised for handball in a decision that even West Brom boss Alan Pardew admitted was “tough”.“It wasn’t a penalty,” said Wenger at the start of a wide-ranging rant. “It was not a deliberate handball.“He (Chambers) didn’t lift his hand. It was down. Where do you put your hands? You have no pockets in your shorts.“The referee has not seen it. That’s my opinion, he will tell you that he has seen it. Ask him.“I don’t want to waste my time with them, we have to live with the decision, to deal with it and to swallow it and go to the next game.“I’m angry because we have seen and seen the same things again.– Referees ‘untouchable’ –“I did fight very hard for the referees to become professional many years ago with (then Arsenal chairman) David Dein, and they did a good job to allow them to be professional.“But I see no improvement. At the end of the day there are two countries in Europe where you have professional referees, in Italy and in England, and not one English referee will go to the World Cup but everything is alright.“We cannot say a word against it because they’re untouchable.”Alexis Sanchez had fired Arsenal ahead on 83 minutes with a deflected free-kick and celebrated with all of his team-mates just days after the lack of a group celebration for a Sanchez goal against Crystal Palace had prompted TV pundit Henry to claim there were splits in the camp.“I don’t listen to what he (Henry) says,” said Wenger. “I focus on our own problems. That is the important thing.“All these people are paid to talk and it is difficult always to talk and talk and talk and only say things that are true and intelligent.”West Brom have still not won in seven games under Pardew, who sympathised with Wenger over the crucial late penalty.“I’d be very upset if it was given against me,” admitted Pardew. “It was a tough penalty. “Obviously the ball has hit his arm and we’re all a little in the dark about what is a handball and what isn’t.“I can understand Arsene being very angry about that but we deserved it.“We’ve had three or four games here where we’ve not had a break at all. We went toe-to-toe with Arsenal at times, not all the time, but enough times to take them on with attacking intent.“It was good for me to see. The messages are getting through.“It was nice to go into the dressing room and say ‘if you keep doing the right things, you’ll get a break’. And we did get a break.”West Brom take their fight for survival to West Ham on Tuesday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Car crash witness honored for courage

So he reached into the damaged car and shut off the ignition to keep it from catching fire. In January, Cruz then testified in the preliminary hearing of Andranik Atshemyan, the driver of the Land Rover who is charged with second-degree murder. In the hallway outside the courtroom, the defendant’s grandmother allegedly approached Cruz, muttered something and placed her finger to her temple as if she were holding a gun and pretended to pull the trigger, Deputy District Attorney Susan Schwartz said Wednesday. The grandmother, Marusya Zatkyan, has been charged with witness intimidation. She was released on bail Wednesday. District Attorney Steve Cooley said Cruz showed “the highest form of good citizenship” when he came to the crash victims’ rescue. PASADENA – A 28-year-old Glendale man was honored Wednesday for helping two unconscious hit-and-run victims and then testifying against the negligent driver. The District Attorney’s Office presented Severo Cruz and two others with the Courageous Citizens Award at the Pasadena Hilton in a ceremony sponsored by the local Rotary Club. Cruz was visiting a friend in Glendale on Nov. 19 when he saw a Land Rover zoom by. He ran after it and saw the driver crash at Columbus Avenue and Riverdale Drive. He then approached the two young victims in a car the Land Rover had struck. “Hey guys, are you alright? Wake up,” Cruz yelled. “And then he doubled his effort by standing tall in court, not being intimidated by those who would upset our justice system through the improper use of intimidation of a witness,” Cooley said. Cruz, whose English is limited, downplayed his actions. “I think I did the right thing … I was there and I did what I could,” he said. “I don’t think it was a big deal.” Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgEvidence is mounting to suggest that water fluoridation has no tangible benefits to Irish citizens, and the government would be wise to recognise this fact sooner rather than later, Independent MEP Marian Harkin said today (28 February).Harkin arranged for Irish anti-fluoridation campaigner Robert Pocock to make the case to a February 28 hearing of the European Parliament’s Petitions Committee, noting that “this campaign has been ongoing for many years and is backed by a growing body of scientific evidence”.North & West MEP Harkin added that “the most recent report from the Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks to the European Commission (SCHER) raises very serious questions, especially with regard to children and infants exceeding the upper tolerable level of fluoride intake”. “There is no upper limit for infants less than 12 months but where the concentration of fluoride in drinking water is greater than 0.8 mg/litre – the mandatory fluoridation level in Ireland – exposure to fluoride for those infants who are fed using formula is estimated to be 200 times that found in breast milk. If nature knows best, then there are serious questions to be answered here by the Irish government,” she noted, adding that “for children aged 1 to 6, if they consume more than half a litre of fluoridated water and more than a pea-sized application of fluoridated toothpaste they will exceed the tolerable upper level”.“These scientific findings need to be seriously considered by the Minister for Health, particularly when Ireland is the only remaining EU country with a legislative policy for fluoridation of drinking water,” Harkin stated.The Committee heard from Pocock how Ireland and some English Councils stand alone among EU member States in continuing to use fluoridation. Other EU countries “have determined that the unfavourable risk/benefit profile of drinking water fluoridation means that mass medication with fluoride in this way cannot be justified,” he noted.In summation, the Independent MEP agreed with Robert Pocock that “there is strong evidence to suggest that the European Commission is currently neglecting its duty under the Treaty to enforce a range of directives contravened by this fluoride treatment, most particularly the Medicines Directive”. Even if the Commission fails to act, there is enough accumulated evidence at this point for the current Irish government to apply the precautionary principle and give serious thought to ending water fluoridation once and for all”.FURTHER READING PROVIDED BY THE MEP:“Critical review of any new evidence on the hazard profile, health effects, and human exposure to fluoride and the fluoridating agents of drinking water”, a report produced in 2011 by the SCHER (Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks) of the European Commission: against Fluoridation Campaign website:© 2012, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on Follow us on HARKIN CHALLENGES IRELAND OVER MASS FLUORIDATION OF WATER was last modified: February 28th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:MEP HARKIN CHALLENGES IRELAND OVER MASS FLUORIDATION OF WATERlast_img read more


first_imgSHAY Given insists he will think about his future as Ireland’s goalkeeper before taking a decision on whether to continue to represent his country.The Donegal man says he will spend time with his wife and children before discussing his next move with his new boss at Aston Villa, Paul Lambert.Shay also lamented Ireland’s performances in Euro 2012, culminating in last night’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Italy. “I’m going home, I will try to spend some time with my wife and my kids. My decision over the future will be both professional and personal. I will also speak to the new boss [Paul Lambert] at Aston Villa to see how he sees it,” said Shay when asked about his future with Ireland.“It’s tough to take any positives from the tournament, we were beaten three times, we expected to do a lot better before we came here but maybe in few months’ time we will look at the bigger picture and draw more optimistic conclusions,” said Shay. “Of course we improved as players and as a team.“It’s been a tough few weeks for everybody, the squad and me, and especially the fact that we are coming home without any points has been especially tough for us.”The 36-year-old conceded his own mistake in conceding the first goal, after he spilled a long-range shot onto the post to give away the corner that was then headed home by Cassano. “We played well tonight,” he added. “We feel the goals were harsh on us and we should have done something for ourselves.“The first goal was of course my mistake but it takes a lot of time for the ball to end up in the back of the net and it was also good delivery from Pirlo as well. Cassano is the smallest player on the pitch as well so from that point of view it is disappointing.“And how it led to the corner was disappointing, again it was my mistake, I should have dealt much better with the shot but with that humid weather it gets a bit tougher. I have to admit that I should have done a lot better, though.”The Aston Villa man defended Keith Andrews after he was sent off for a foul on Pirlo just before Italy struck their second goal.“Keith put in a great performance tonight I think, his sending off was a little bit harsh, he showed some frustration on the way off but his display was excellent, as it was in previous games,” he said. He didn’t comment on the play-acting of some of the Italian players nor the dreadful decisions of both the referee and the linesmen.EURO 2012: SHAY TO SPEAK TO NEW BOSS LAMBERT ABOUT INTERNATIONAL FUTURE was last modified: June 19th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:EURO 2012: SHAY TO SPEAK TO NEW BOSS LAMBERT ABOUT INTERNATIONAL FUTURElast_img read more
