37 Win Alpha Kappa Alpha Third Raffle Draw

first_imgThe sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority (AKA) hosted their Third Omega Market Raffle Draw, during which 37 lucky individuals won fabulous prizes.Heading a team of high ranking government officials at the occasion, President Ellen Jonson-Sirleaf kick-started the draw, and lucky streaks when she picked the first ticket which resulted in the winner taking home a brand new Safari motorbike.The Secretary General of the AKA Eta Beta Omega Chapter, Rhonda Richards von Ballmoos, said the President’s presence at the draw was a sign that she appreciates the hard work the women have so far put into the market project.“The President came to support us today because she is a member of the organization, and we really appreciate her presence,” said Madam von Ballmoos.She added that the organization is doing everything possible to ensure that the Omega Market is completed “to help decongest the Red Light Market area.”“We are half way in getting our targeted amount and praying that before the fourth raffle draw on December 24, all of our tickets would be completely sold out. Our target is US$1million to finish the project, but the AKA sisters are anticipating raising US$300,000 from the raffle draws as well as generating funds from other initiatives,” she added.According to von Ballmoos, non-winning tickets from the November 30 raffle draw will be used for the final draw on December 30.“As I speak, the project at Omega Market is ongoing because money generated from the sale of the tickets is directed immediately to the project,” she said. After extending thanks and appreciation to everyone that bought a ticket, Madam von Ballmoos called on Liberians to purchase more tickets “as there are two more raffle draws in December.” In brief remarks, Satu Sherriff, who won the raffle draw for the second time, said she was pleased to be associated with such an historic project. Sherriff called on other women to get on board “because this is our project,” and promised to buy more tickets for the forthcoming draws.Prizes won at the Third Omega Market Raffle Draw included a Safari motorbike, 21 inch TV, refrigerator, tires for a pickup truck and computer speakers. Other prizes were a triple burner outdoor gas stove, bread toaster, Nokia Lumia Windows phone, laptop, cash prizes, 50 pound bags of rice, electric iron and a rice cooker.

Young Liberian Authors New Book

first_imgAmbassador Edmond N. Tuazama, age 20, has authored a new book, titled, ‘Victory For The Spiritual Warfare In Jesus,’ which is expected to be launched on Saturday, June 29, 2019, at the Paynesville Central Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church, near ELWA Junction, outside Monrovia.The book is expected to unveil material that will enlighten the minds of believers to get a broad knowledge on issues that affect their daily spiritual lives.The author believes that there are many believers today in the world who have lost their ways in their spiritual journeys, simply because they have been tracked down by the devil’s power.“Over the years and even now, we have lost some family members, friends, and loved ones to death or sickness because they could not stand against the spiritual warfare and we don’t know even if we are next to follow in that same line,” Tuazama said.Tuazama said it is very important to make this explicit to humanity, so they can know what is happening in the background.“Throughout this book,” he said, “we will get to know how the devil and his agents have depressed the spiritual life of God’s children.”He said the book also reveals the devil’s plans to win the spiritual and physical battle against the church and God’s kingdom.“This book was written in sacred moments with revelation from God, to redeem and restore his creation from the evil plans of the devil and his agents,” he said.“This script is divided into five parts,” Tuazama said, “each part of this script reveals information about the warfare and explains more of how the battle is fought, those who are mainly involved in the battle and the brain behind the battle.”Tuazama said in one segment of the book, readers will discover the devil’s plans for humanity and God’s saving grace for his children. In other segments, they will learn more about the battle, what needed to be prepared for the battle and they will be challenged to make a powerful decision to choose between the devil and God.He said the devil is powerful enough to win a whole nation with his tricks and magic powers adding that, “remember that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers of the dark world.”Within every chapter, readers will get to understand that, Christ’s redemptive power to save the world is why He came down as a man, just to save that which was lost.“We all are in the devil’s mouth and, with a loud voice, we are shouting, ‘Maranatha’,” Tuazama said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Ambassador Edmond N.

Carl Greenidge renounces UK citizenship

first_img…expresses interest in APNU/AFC candidates’ listFormer Foreign Affairs Minister, Carl Greenidge has announced that his British citizenship has been officially renounced, paving the way for him to continue his political career in Guyana.Greenidge was among four Government parliamentarians who had to resign from the National Assembly and as Ministers because of their dual citizenship status.This came on the heels of court rulings earlier this year barring persons with dual citizenship from sitting in the National Assembly. Three Opposition Members of Parliament also had to give up their seats in the House.The issue of dual citizenship arose late last year when former coalition MP, Charrandas Persaud, who also held a second citizenship, crossed over and voted in favour of an Opposition-tabled No-Confidence Motion (NCM) against the APNU/AFC Government, causing its defeat.The validity of Persaud’s vote was challenged in the court by Government supporter, Compton Reid, and the High Court, whose ruling was subsequently upheld in the Appeal Court, found that while persons with dual citizenship cannot sit in the National Assembly, the former MP’s vote on the NCM was valid since he was a valid parliamentarian.After stepping down as Foreign Affairs Minister in March, Greenidge was appointed Foreign Secretary at the Ministry.On Saturday he announced that he received confirmation from the relevant British authorities that his application to renounce his British citizenship has been accepted.“I have informed President Granger accordingly and, therefore, look forward to being included on the list of candidates from which the party will make its selection of MPs following the holding of the Regional and General Elections in 2020,” Greenidge said.He explained that his UK citizenship and residence had enabled him to take advantage, largely free of cost to his parents, of wide-ranging educational opportunities which he would not have been in a position to access or finance had he remained in Guyana. He said he was subsequently able to gain invaluable employment and vocational experience in the employ of UK Government agencies before returning to Guyana to serve.Along with Greenidge, former Minister of State Joseph Harmon, former Business Minister Dominic Gaskin and former Public Service Minister Rupert Roopnaraine also resigned.With the exception of Gaskin, who is a born Briton, the others had indicated the intention to renounce their second citizenship. Harmon has a United States citizenship while Roopnaraine has a UK citizenship.Meanwhile on the other side of the House, Opposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeira, Adrian Anamayah and Odinga Lamumba also give up their parliamentary seats. However, Anamayah will not be renouncing his United States citizenship. The process was activated for Teixeira and Lamumba to give up their Canadian and US citizenships, respectively.last_img read more

Panel OKs cell phone towers

first_imgWHITTIER – The Planning Commission voted 4-1 Monday to approve cell phone towers at Founders and Palm parks, overriding a group of residents who complained they would be dangerous, unsightly and noisy. But despite the complaints in both cases, City Attorney Krista MacNevin Jee told the commission the federal government doesn’t allow them to even consider potential health concerns as long as it met the Federal Communications Commission’s standards. “The telecommunications act preempts any city, state or local government from doing anything on the basis of radio frequency emissions when the facility complies with FCC requirements,” Jee said. “It really ties your hands on that issue.” Still, Palm Park-area residents said they expect to appeal the Planning Commission’s actions to the City Council. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2“I’m concerned about radio frequencies,” said Margo Diaz, who lives near Palm Park in West Whittier. “This tower is being placed in two spots where children play,” Diaz said. “You’re jeopardizing our future, our health and our lives. I was really shocked to hear the federal government allows this.” But an official representing Sprint and Nextel, which want to build the tower near Palm Park, said they commissioned a study that shows it is safe and within the FCC regulations. The study by DTech Communications found that the proposed cell tower would have emissions of .4 percent of the FCC limit. David Mesa, who also lives near Palm Park, said he fears the cell phone tower would be unsightly. “The cell towers I’ve seen are pretty ugly,” Mesa said. “Why couldn’t this be placed on the side of a freeway?” The proposed facility will be disguised to look like a pine tree, said Don Dooley, planning services manager. “The intent is to mimic the existing trees on the site.” The cell phone tower will be 60 feet high and located near the proposed Greenway Trail. Commissioner Helen Rahder, the only commissioner to oppose the cell tower, said she was concerned because it would be in a residential zone. “When you’re in a residential area, there’s a certain safety you anticipate,” Rahder said. “You don’t expect someone to put in a 7-Eleven, a 17-unit apartment or a big fake tree.” Commissioner Harry Stone said that there are cell towers throughout the city. “The ones that are successful, you don’t even know they’re there,” Stone said. mike.sprague@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Clattenburg: Mitrovic was offside but Liverpool’s goal was still ‘illegal’

Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move MONEY Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions REPLY “In situations when a tight offside has been given and a team is celebrating, usually the referee will delay the match to make sure all players are ready for the retake.“On this occasion, Tierney didn’t and Liverpool capitalised.”Xherdan Shaqiri added a second for Liverpool in the second half to secure three points that sent them to the top of the Premier League table. However, the Reds were knocked back down to second later in the day when Manchester City defeated their local rivals United in the Manchester derby. “When Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson takes the free-kick,” Clattenburg continues, “the ball is moving and therefore it is illegal.“A retake should have been given by referee Paul Tierney. Instead, play was allowed to carry on and Fulham were punished.“After his header, Mitrovic started his celebration too. Aleksandar Mitrovic, the forward, thought he had fired the visitors in front after heading Tom Cairney’s delivery past Alisson, but he was adjudged to have been in an offside position when the ball was played into the area.Alisson quickly restarted play with nearly the entire Fulham team out of position, and just moments later Salah had sent a neat finish into the back of their net.On review it was hard to tell if Mitrovic was offside or not, given television footage appeared to show he was, at worst, in line with Andy Robertson, the deepest of Liverpool’s defenders. Latest Football News However, former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg insists Mitrovic was in an offside position.In the Daily Mail, Clattenburg says: “A part of the body that can score a goal only needs to be in an offside position and in this case, Aleksandar Mitrovic is marginally off.“His side and shoulder are behind the last defender, so that was the right call from the assistant.”Nonetheless, Salah’s goal SHOULD have been ruled out, as Liverpool broke the rules in the build-up to his finish.
