Following the high increase of suspected and confirmed Ebola patients and corpses and due to the limited Ambulances in the country, ArcelorMittal has donated two ambulances to the Ministry of Health to help fight the deadly Ebola virus in the country.The donation was made this Wednesday, in Monrovia.Making the donation in Monrovia, Arcelor Mittal country manager for Liberia, Ronnie Addy, said the donation is an initial contribution to the country in helping to fight against the Ebola virus, especially with contact tracing and removing of dead bodies from one area to the other.According to Mr.Addy, the company had noticed the shortage of Ambulances to take suspected Ebola patients and dead bodies to and from the various Ebola Treatment Units in the country.“Ebola is real and is destroying our people everyday and there are not enough Ambulances to take our people to various Ebola Treatment Units for treatment and to remove bodies from one community to the other. That is why the Arcelor Mittal family is donating these vehicles to help combat the virus by carry on contact tracing and removing dead bodies,” Mr. Addy stated.Mr. Tolbert Nyenswah, Assistant Minister for Preventive Services at the Ministry of Health, thanked Arcelor Mittal for its continued support in the current crisis. He described the donation as a true example of private- public partnership.“The Government cannot do this alone; we need this partnership from private entities and business organizations and the entire world to help eradicate this killer disease from our country.”Mr.Nyenswah promised to use the two ambulances to carry on contact tracing by bringing suspected Ebola patients to the Ebola Treatment Units; and also to remove dead bodies.At the same time, the Chief Coordinator of the Ebola Task Force, Mr. Dorbor Jallah, who received the keys to the vehicles on behalf of theTask Force, thanked Arcelor Mittal for the support and promised to work with the various Ebola Units to save the lives of the Liberian people.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Recent rumors circulating in the entertainment industry about a possible fight between two top entertainers has everyone talking.“The fool who hurt my Master Queen will not hear the end of it,” stated Michael Smith on facebook.“My boy KZEE is too caring and nice to ever hit on a woman. I’ve known him for years and he has never lifted a finger to do so” stated Romeo Kamara on FaceBook.What happened on the night of March 21, 2015 between Hip-Co and Gbema artist KZEE and HottFm 107.9 radio personality and promoter Master Queen is unclear.Confirmed reports by the Metro Depot on center street say Master Queen made a report there claiming she was assaulted by Kolano Zulu, commonly known as KZEE Bigname.“KZEE accused me of not allowing him to perform at Soul Fresh’s show during their four day Hip-Co Crusade. I being a promoter for the Liberian entertainment industry would never stop anyone from performing and told KZEE that I was only reading artists whose names were listed by Soul Fresh,” she stated.According to the radio diva, KZEE became upset and rumor began reaching to her that he wanted to address her on the issue.“I heard it was bothering him after the show and one night while at a club, I saw KZEE and his woman there. His girlfriend approached me about it in the bathroom and accused me of trying to disrespect KZEE. Being that she didn’t know anything about the industry, I told her excuse and left the bathroom,’ she added.According to a witness who was on the scene, he says he watched and heard Master Queen and KZEE begin to exchange words in the parking lot of the club.“KZEE told Master Queen how he was just as important as she was and that her career was nothing without his. And I heard Queen telling him that she would make sure his music or any content would never get played again,” added Ras.“Next thing I saw was KZEE trying to grab Queen and threatening her, but I didn’t see him throw any blows,” Ras shared.According to Master Queen, she was assaulted by KZEE.“He had a beer bottle in his hand and was trying to use it as a weapon on me. I remember even having to tell him that his bottle was too close to me and his beer was spilling on me,” she added.“KZEE swung at me and pushed me down. Other artists were there as witnesses and saw him do it. HottFM was called to come to my rescue, but he had escaped before they could arrive.” She added.Meanwhile, according to KZEE who left the country a day after he was accused of assaulting Master Queen, he is innocent.“I have a clear heart. God comes first, I never touched her. She said she would make sure that my career spoils and I told her I was popular before her. She said my songs will never play, and I told her that it wouldn’t happen and that’s how the argument went. It was not a fight,” he added.“Quincy B was on the scene, FA was on the scene, FA held my hand and pushed me back and said that I should forget about her. When I got home, I heard that she said I fought her and pulled her clothes off, which I could never do,” he added.According to KZEE, he went to the police and explained to them his side of the story and was never arrested.“I don’t have a problem with Master Queen. She’s my sister. I don’t take this to mean anything. It was just a normal argument, and I was surprised to see her posting stuff on FaceBook. She should have told me that I offended her rather than go to the police,” he added. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Police in D Division (West Bank Demerara-East Bank Essequibo) have arrested two of three persons who are suspected of terrorising a Zeelugt, East Bank Essequibo family in the wee hours of Tuesday.According to reports, the suspects reportedly raped the wife, while her husband was badly beaten. The men also threatened to kill the couple’s toddler, who was crying during the ordeal.Guyana Times understands that the couple was asleep when sometime around 02:30h, the husband was suddenly awakened after being struck to his head. He was then confronted by the three suspects, who ordered him to remain quiet and demanded cash and jewellery. 1The man complied, handing over just over $10,000 along with a ring he was wearing. By that time, his wife and two-year-old son were awakened as well. It was reported that the men began physically assaulting the husband and then turned their attention to the wife, whom they allegedly sexually assaulted.Moreover, during this time, the couple’s toddler was crying loudly and the men placed a knife to his neck, threatening to kill him if he did not stop screaming. The boy’s mother managed to console the frightened child.Nevertheless, the perpetrators then held the family of three at knifepoint and escorted them to their car.“It was further alleged that the suspects placed the victims in their (victims’) vehicle and drove away but the vehicle broke down and the perpetrators escaped,” the Police said.The matter was reported to the Police and the victims were taken to seek medical attention, where they were treated and sent home.Based on statements obtained from the victims, the Police said the suspects were identified.

Chairman of GNBA’s Board, Leslie Sobers (left) and GNBA’s Board Member and Director of the Guyana Telecommunications Agency, Andre Griffith signing the MoUBroadcasters will soon be experiencing more efficient service. This follows the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Guyana National Broadcasting Authority (GNBA) and the Guyana Telecommunications Agency (GTA).The MoU was signed during GNBA’s fourth stakeholder engagement forum attended by licensed broadcasters from around Guyana. The agreement, according to the Department of Public Information (DPI), will see spectrum fees being paid directly to the GNBA, effective from January 2020.Chairman of the GNBA’s Board, Leslie Sobers explained that some time ago, broadcasters had indicated to the GNBA that having to pay spectrum fees to the then National Frequency Management Unit as a separate entity and pay broadcast fees to GNBA as another entity was somewhat burdensome. “We promised to examine that dichotomous situation to simplify the payment of fees. I am pleased to announce that both spectrum fees and broadcast licences fee will be payable to the GNBA and the issuance of a broadcast licence will be proof of payment of spectrum fees as well.”GNBA’s Board Member and Director of the Guyana Telecommunications Agency, Andre Griffith said the MoU is part of a reform process intended to make the job for broadcasters simpler.“We want to make things simpler, faster and better for you the stakeholders out there. We realised very early in the process that the inter-agency process between the telecommunications agency and the broadcast authority is one that could potentially be very highly impactful,” Griffith stated.The stakeholder engagements are held to create a better environment for broadcasters. Two more engagements are slated to be held before the end of 2019.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant The findings are part of a report thick with statistics on America’s elderly, called “65+ in the United States: 2005.” It was commissioned by the National Institute on Aging and compiled by the Census Bureau. The findings have added importance as the first baby boomers near retirement age. The oldest baby boomers turn 60 this year, and the new report suggests many of them already have left the labor force. “The aging of our society will have profound consequences for our future, and in fact it is not a very distant future,” said Census Bureau Director Louis Kincannon. There are about 35 million Americans age 65 and over, a number that is projected to more than double by 2030, according to the report. About 59 percent of seniors are women. Among men 65 and older, the percentage still in the labor force bottomed out in the 1980s and increased slightly since then. The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects the percentage to increase only slightly in the future, never again reaching the levels of 50 years ago. WASHINGTON – Fifty years ago, nearly half of American men 65 and older were still working. Today, only about one in five remains in the work force. Some of the reasons, according to a government report Thursday: the growth in private pensions, Social Security and Medicare benefits. As benefits for older Americans grew in the last half of the 20th century, fewer saw the need to work beyond 65. “Not too long ago, people, particularly men, worked until they were physically unable to work,” said Robert Friedland, director of the Center on an Aging Society at Georgetown University. “Now, people have a period of time to which they are looking forward.” Women in general are working in much larger numbers than they used to, but among those 65 and older, those staying on the job has remained steady at around 10 percent since 1950. Friedland said seniors should be prudent when considering retirement. He noted that $1 million in a retirement account isn’t that much to live on if you expect be around another 20 or 30 years. “If you leave the labor force thinking you have plenty, and then realize that you don’t, then you are stuck,” Friedland said. More than a third of seniors lived below the poverty level in 1959, according to the report. In 2003, the poverty rate among seniors was 10 percent – lower than the 12.5 percent rate for the general population. But the biggest retirement programs face problems. Private pension systems have been defaulting at an alarming rate. Many companies are abandoning pension plans that guarantee benefits based on years of service and age at retirement. Medicare, which just added a prescription drug benefit, faces insolvency in 2020, according to the trust fund that runs it, and Social Security, if left alone, is projected to go broke in 2041. “This report tells us that we have made a lot of progress in improving the health and well-being of older Americans, but there is much left to do,” NIA Director Richard Hodes said in a statement. Americans, meanwhile, are living longer. Life expectancy for men was 74.1 years in 2000, up from 68.2 years in 1950. Among women, life expectancy was 79.5 years in 2000, up from 71.1 in 1950. AT A GLANCE EARLY OUT: About one in five men 65 and older was part of the labor force in 2003. In 1950, nearly half of men that age were still working. MORE SENIORS: There are 35 million Americans 65 and over – a figure that is projected to more than double by 2030. LESS WORK, MORE LIFE: Americans are living longer, with life expectancy for men at 74.1 years in 2000, up from 68.2 years in 1950, and 79.5 years for women, up from 71.1.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A businessman who caused more than €66,000 of damage to a hotel while naked said he wants to be a role model for his son after he puts his court case behind him.Marketing manager Eamon Devlin damaged four bedrooms in a Co Donegal Hotel and blamed a cocktail of medication and drink for his actions. Letterkenny Circuit Court heard how the 41-year-old had wrecked his own room and then arrived in the lobby of the Ballyliffin Lodge Hotel to tell staff that his room had been ransacked by “gypsies.”His lawyers had pleaded not guilty on his behalf claiming his consumption of the tablets with alcohol had led to a case of “involuntary intoxication.”A two-day trial heard how Devlin booked into the hotel with his three-year-old son as he was going through a divorce and wanted to spend time with his child.The father and son had enjoyed a day out playing pitch and putt at Ballyliffin Golf Club before having a swim and some bar food at the hotel.He had a pint of Carlsberg, an Irish coffee and took a bottle of wine to his room.At 11.30pm Mr Devlin ordered another bottle of wine be brought to his room.However, in the early hours of the morning, around 5am, Mr Devlin arrived in the reception of the hotel naked carrying his son who was in his pyjamas.He asked staff to come to his room, number 214, claiming there was ‘gypsies’ in his room and he needed to get them out.The Ballyliffin Lodge Hotel in which the damage was caused.Night porter, Seamus Henry went to the room but found nothing wrong and that there was nobody else in his room.Around 6am, the night porter received a phonecall from room 215 complaining of shouting in the accused man’s rooms which had been going on for half an hour.Accompanied by another staff member, Mr Henry went upstairs and noticed the corridor was flooded.They used the master key to gain entry to room 214 but had to force the door as it was damaged.Mr Henry said the room was under three inches of water and that sinks had been pulled off the bathroom wall and there was also broken glass everywhere.The court was told that the water later spread to three other rooms and at one stage it appeared that the ceiling of one room almost collapsed.Hotel manager Colm O’Kane said he was telephoned at home to tell him what had happened and he arrived a short time later.He said that Devlin asked him “Did you see them, did you see them? The gypsies? Youse are doing a great job.”Devlin, a marketing manager with a software company in Northern Ireland, was arrested and interviewed at Buncrana Garda station.He blamed a combination of stress, medication and alcohol for his behaviour on the night and offered to pay compensation for the damage saying he was deeply ashamed of what had happened.He told Gardai “I’m a big boy. If that phonecall to room service hadn’t been made I wouldn’t be here.”He said he recalls going into the bathroom but the room went dark and he could not find a way out and believed the gypsies were in the room taking his son.He also said he was taking tablets for an ear infection which he bought in a pharmacy in Northern Ireland and these were called Day and Night Nurse.However, a jury found Mr Devlin guilty.At Letterkenny Circuit Court today he apologised to the staff of the hotel and the Gardai.The court heard that at the time of the incident, Devlin’s ex-wife had told him that she was planning to relocate to America with her son and he was under severe stress.Devlin said he was now trying to get his life back together and can pay €250 a month back to the hotel for the damage of more than €66,000.He said “I apologise to the court for what happened. I am deeply sorry and ashamed. It was totally out of character and it was meant to be a fun weekend with my son. It was irrational behaviour and it should not have happened.“The last five years have been a nightmare for me personally. I want to be a role model for my son. This is a black mark for me. I have to live with this but I want to rebuild my life,” he said.Judge John Aylmer adjourned the case until Friday for sentence.Naked man who caused €66,000 of damage to hotel wants to be role model for his son was last modified: December 6th, 2018 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:BALLYLIFFIN LODGE HOTELdamagedonegalEamon Devlinmedicationnakedson
