President Sirleaf Consoles Germany

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has extended a condolence message to her German counterpart, Mr. Joachime Gauck, the government and people of the Federal Republic of Germany, following the death of Mr. Hans-Dietrich Genscher, former Foreign Minister and Vice Chancellor.Mr. Genscher (March 21, 1927–March 31, 2016) served as Minister of the Interior from 1969 to 1974, and as Foreign Minister and Vice Chancellor from 1974 to 1992 (except for a two-week break in 1982), making him the longest – serving occupant of either post. In 1991 he was chairman of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). According to a Foreign Ministry release, President Sirleaf recalled the bond of friendship that subsisted between the late Mr. Genscher and Mr. C. Cecil Dennis, the late former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Liberia, which strengthened the ties of friendship and reinforced the collaboration between both countries.“We also recall with appreciation the pivotal role and invaluable financial contribution from the Federal Government to Liberia toward the hosting of the 16th OAU Summit in Monrovia, in July 1979,” President Sireaf indicated.President Sirleaf said, “At the time of national mourning, please be assured of Liberia’s empathy with the people of the German Federation and wish that they will receive divine consolation.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

HARPS HOPING TO GET SEASON BACK ON TRACK AWAY TO WATERFORD

first_imgFinn Harps will be hoping to bounce back from their defeat last weekend when they make the long trip south on Friday to take on Waterford United at the RSC (kick-off 7.45pm).Although Waterford only won their first game of the season last weekend, at the seventh time of asking, Harps manager Ollie Horgan said that they will still provide a tough task for his team on Friday.“Waterford are a very difficult team to beat, especially down there,” said Horgan as he prepares for the trip to the south-east. “We were lucky to get a draw at home against them when we played them on the opening day of the season. They haven’t conceded in their last three games so they will be very difficult to break down.“They have loads of attacking options in their team including Vinny Sullivan, Willie John Keily, Conor Meade and Jack Doherty to mention a few, so we know they have the firepower to damage us.”Last weekend, Horgan watched his side lose for the second time this season in a 1-0 away defeat in Longford. However, the game was decided by a dubious penalty and Horgan felt his side deserved something from the game.“Had we been beaten by three or four, out the door if you like, we might be more content and I could stand here and say: ‘The better side won’,” Horgan said. “It’s hard. The penalty decision was very, very harsh. Really, there wasn’t a whole lot in it apart form that. It’s hard to take. It was a decent cross, nothing great. Packie seemed to stumble into it and he seemed to be pushed into it in a way, but that’s not for me to stay.“We didn’t get the rub of the green, but so be it. We won’t dwell too much on it. We matched them for most of the ninety minutes, but we got nothing out of it.,” said Horgan.“We limited them to a couple of chances. They are very strong at set pieces, their delivery and movement is excellent. We dealt with that, but then we conceded the penalty. Longford are a decent side with some serious players.”Although Harps were defeated 3-0 on their last visit to the RSC in June, they were unbeaten in their previous four visits there (3 draws and 1 victory). The two clubs met in the opening day of the 2014 season at Finn Park, with the game ending in a scoreless draw.Kevin McHugh remains out while Sean McCarron is also a doubt ahead of Friday’s trip to the RSC. Tommy Bonner serves a one match suspension for accumulating four yellow cards, while Keith Cowan serves the second of a four match ban as a result of his red card in the 1-1 draw with Wexford Youths a couple of weeks ago. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~TEAM NEWSSuspended: Tommy Bonner, Keith Cowan.Doubtful: Sean McCarron.

DONEGAL AID WORKER HAS GRANDMOTHER’S RING PULLED FROM FINGER DURING BRUTAL ROBBERY

first_imgBridgeen Harkin during one of her trips to Kenya.Two Donegal charity workers have been left traumatised after being robbed of money and jewelry during an aid trip to Kenya.Sisters Bridgeen and Sonia Harkin were left terrified after being confronted by six men at a special needs unit in Nairobi.The young women were just a couple of days into a planned two week trip when the horrific hold-up took place last Thursday. The women, from Buncrana, were at a meeting at the Songa Mbela na Masomo Special Needs Complex when six men burst in.Bridgeen, 35, told Donegal Daily “These men burst in and started shouting and all the other workers lay down on their stomachs.“We didn’t realise what was happening so we didn’t lie down. They came over to us and started pulling at my back.“I refused to let it go but they pulled it so hard they broke the strap. “They also began to roar at Sonia and she initially wouldn’t give them her bag as our passports were in it.“I told her just to give it to them as I was terrified of what they might do to her if she didn’t.”As well as €980 the gang got away with their watches, phones and they even pulled a ring off Bridgeen’s finger.“That was the worst of it all. My grandmother Bridget Harkin gave me that ring a few years ago and I’ll never be able to replace it, she added.The women’s passports were found by a river the following day. The two aid workers, who were working with charity group Africa Direct, were so shaken by the incident that they decided to leave the country and return to Ireland the following day.Bridgeen, who was on her sixth charity trip to Nairobi, said she was very shaken but sister Sonia, who was on her first trip, is still very shaken up.“Sonia was very nervous going out in the first place but I never thought anything like this would happen.“This was my sixth trip and I never had any bother before,” she said. The Buncrana woman admits that she is unsure if she will go on another charity trip to the region.“It’s to early to even think about it because we are still very shaken. I’m not sure.“I will continue to raise money for the unit and for Nairobi but I’m not sure if I will go back or not yet,” she said.DONEGAL AID WORKER HAS GRANDMOTHER’S RING PULLED FROM FINGER DURING BRUTAL ROBBERY was last modified: July 12th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:Bridgeen Hakrinbuncranacharity workdonegalNairobirobbedSonia Harkinlast_img read more

Online habits differ by sex

first_imgNEW YORK – Women are now as likely to use the Internet as men – about two-thirds of both genders – yet a new study shows that gaps remain in what each sex does online. American men who go online are more likely than women to check the weather, the news, sports, political and financial information, the Pew Internet and American Life Project reported Wednesday. They are also more likely to use the Internet to download music and software and to take a class. Online women, meanwhile, are bigger users of e-mail, and they are also more likely to go online for religious information and support for health or personal problems. “For men, it’s just, ‘Give me the facts,”‘ said Deborah Fallows, who wrote the report based on six years of Pew surveys. “For women, it’s ‘Let’s talk about this. Are you worried about this problem?’ It’s keeping in touch and connecting with people in a richer way.” A survey from March, for instance, found that 54 percent of online men use the Internet for job-related research, compared with 48 percent of female Internet users. A September survey found 94 percent of online women sending e-mail, compared with 88 percent for men. Women also were more likely to use e-mail to write friends and relatives about news, worries, advice and planning. They were also more likely to credit e-mail for improving relationships with friends, family and colleagues. Men, on the other hand, were more likely to participate in interest groups, such as fan clubs. Men also were more likely to use the Internet for entertainment, such as downloading songs and videos, listening to music on Web sites and remixing songs, images or text into new creations. Fallows attributes that to a greater comfort with technology, another of the surveys’ findings. Tracy Kennedy, a University of Toronto and Brock University lecturer who specializes in Internet use in the home, said that beyond gender, a person’s offline life produces “different expectations, different routines and different needs” when he or she goes online. For example, women are often the primary caretakers in households, she said, so, “yes, its very likely that she will be searching for health information for her kids and spouse (or) partner.” “We can certainly assert the gender differences argument, but I think there’s much more to it than that,” she said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By gender, it was 68 percent of the male respondents, and 66 percent of the female participants – a statistically insignificant difference given the study’s margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. In 2002, by contrast, the gap was slightly larger: 61 percent vs. 57 percent. The surveys find that for many activities, such as getting travel information or looking up a phone number, men and women are equally likely to use the Internet. Barry Wellman, a sociology professor at the University of Toronto, said he was struck by the similarities and the affirmation that the Internet is so integrated into the lives of both men and women that “they aren’t even thinking they are going on the Internet anymore.” In the relatively small number of activities where differences were noticeable, they were often slight. last_img read more

Half-time: QPR 0 Sheffield Wednesday 0

first_imgTjaronn Chery went closest to scoring for QPR during a first half which ended with Sheffield Wednesday’s Modou Sougou being stretchered off.Chery met Sandro’s volleyed diagonal pass with a crisp volley of his own, but his effort from the left-hand edge of the penalty area went wide of the near post.Chery saw another shot deflected wide and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas had a shot saved by Wednesday keeper Keiran Westwood.At the other end, Barry Bannan blazed wastefully wide after cutting inside Nedum Onuoha.And shortly before the interval, Clint Hill slipped and then poleaxed Sougou with a crunching last-ditch challenge to prevent the Owls winger pouncing on the loose ball 30 yards from goal.Chris Ramsey made three changes to the QPR side, with Hill, Massimo Luongo and Daniel Tozser coming in for Gabriele Angella, Leroy Fer and Karl Henry.QPR: Green, Onuoha, Hall, Hill, Konchesky, Sandro, Tozser, Phillips, Luongo, Chery, Emmanuel-Thomas.Subs: Smithies, Angella, Fer, Faurlin, Doughty, Hoilett, Henry.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Tax breaks for big investment projects

first_img11 March 2009The National Treasury has published draft regulations outlining new tax incentives worth R5-billion targeting large industrial investments in South Africa.The new tax incentives complement the government’s Enterprise Investment Programme, launched in 2008, which offers funding for smaller manufacturing and tourism investments, valued at between R5-million and R200-million.The incentives target large investment projects, starting at R200-million in the case of greenfield (new) projects and R30-million in the case of brownfield (expansion) projects.The draft regulations give the requirements for investments to qualify for the tax breaks, strongly favouring projects that promote job creation, skills development and energy efficiency.Procurement from smaller businesses, innovative processes, business linkages and location in an industrial development zone will also stand in a project’s favour.Proposed projects that achieve “qualifying status” will be able to deduct from their taxable income 35% of the costs of their investment in manufacturing assets, up to a maximum of R550-million. “Preferred status” projects will be able deduct 55% of the cost of their investment in manufacturing assets, up to a maximum of R900-million.Projects will also be able to deduct an additional training allowance of R36 000 per employee from their taxable income, up to a maximum of R20-million for “qualifying” projects and R30-million for “preferred” projects.Members of the public have until 31 March 2009 to comment on the draft regulations, which are available on the National Treasury websiteComments should be sent to marle.vanniekerk@treasury.gov.za.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

World Cup 2010 Promotions to Use Augmented Reality

first_imgRelated Posts 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… Tags:#Augmented Reality#web There’s still 142 days, 18 hours and a few minutes until the 2010 World Cup launches in South Africa but the first use of cutting-edge promotional technology is already making an appearance. Sports have been where a lot of technology in the new Augmented Reality category first went mainstream – from Sportvision’s down-line TV overlays to IBM’s Wimbeldon Seer. Augmented Reality (AR) is technology that places data on top of our view of the world around us. The first World Cup 2010 AR made an appearance at a small event in London last week. This screenshot is of a prototype of a system that will be found in public spaces around the world in the months leading up to this year’s tournament. Passers-by will see video reflections of their own faces but with the flags of randomly selected World Cup competing countries overlayed on top of their faces. When they see that image, the country’s national anthem will play.It’s not terribly interactive, but it is a fascinating experiment in trying to build international camaraderie by making fans imagine themselves as if they were fans of another country’s team. How would they feel if they had that other country’s flag painted on their faces and heard its national anthem? Were they from that country, they would probably feel proud. How does the AR make them feel? Perhaps like a more worldly, sympathetic person. That sounds like a positive World Cup experience.We’re told that the system was built by long-time Augmented Reality market leader Total Immersion, in partnership with CrossPlatform.tv. The face being augmented is Simon Grice, founder of MashupEvent. The screenshot was sent to us by “an anonymous source, who was very impressed.”Who’s World Cup AR will we see next and what will it do? We look forward to seeing the world’s most popular sport become an experience all the richer.center_img 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App marshall kirkpatrick 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnoutlast_img read more
