Many eligible Liberian voters in communities in Kakata have told members of the Civic and Voter Education (CVE) group that they don’t see why they should spend precious time to register.In an interview, CVE staff member Blama Foeday said in Kakata yesterday that his team received the reaction when they visited several communities in Kakata, including Matilda, Vai Town, 14 Road, Sugar Hill and World Bank.“They said the whole voter registration process is a waste of their time because in the previous two elections in Liberia they did as they were told but no changes came into their lives and their communities,” Foeday said.He said many of the people feel unhappy about the process because, according to them, “people are making it appear that Liberia’s problems would be solved when Liberians register to vote.”Foeday said , “We have been explaining to them that it is their right to register to vote as Liberians and although some are reasoning with us, others are not.” Foeday said his team is not discouraged and will continue to create awareness on the need for people in the named communities to make it their duty to register to vote.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Messi, 31, has scored 581 goals in 664 games for Barcelona.“I know one day Lionel will say he’s retiring,” Bartomeu told the 5 live Football Daily Podcast’s Guillem Balague.Messi still has another two years left on his current contract and Bartomeu said that Messi’s retirement was “a while away yet”.Listen to Bartomeu interview and BBC experts on the brilliance of Vinicius JuniorHowever, the 25-time La Liga champions are looking at signing players to take the club into a new era to ensure their continued success.“We have to prepare the club for the future,” added Bartomeu, who is due to step down as president in 2021.“We are bringing great young players to the team because we need to continue this era of success. That’s our responsibility.“My mandate will be finished in two seasons. So I need to leave the club in a great position and tell the new president ‘that’s our legacy’.”In 2017, Messi said he had moved closer to his “dream” of “finishing my career at home” after signing a new Barca deal, with the buyout clause raised to 700m euros (£626m).He has won nine La Liga titles with Barcelona as well as four Champions League titles and six Copa del Rey’s.-By BBC Sport-0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Frenkie de Jong (left) will officially join Barcelona in the summer after agreeing a five-year contractLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 7 – Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says the club’s transfer activity is an indication they are preparing for life after Lionel Messi.Barca last month confirmed the £65m signing of 21-year-old midfielder Frenkie de Jong from Ajax.
1 Liverpool striker Christian Benteke has vowed to “fight till the end” to save his Anfield career.The Belgium international came off the bench to score the last-minute penalty in the 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace on Sunday.His spot kick was Benteke’s first goal in 14 matches, ending a drought which stretched back to December 30.The 25-year-old has not started in the last six matches, with the return to fitness of Daniel Sturridge and manager Jurgen Klopp’s preference for compatriot Divock Origi as his second choice meaning Benteke has played a back-seat role so far this year.But his winner against Palace has given the £32.5million summer signing hope he can start to play a bigger part for the Reds.“It’s not the easiest of situations but you have to be ready,” he told Belgian newspaper HLN.“In a career you’ll never have only top moments, also your difficult times.“It’s in the most difficult situations that the real warriors, the tough men and determined guys stand up.“You have to be up for it. I have to take every chance, every minute the manager gives me: one minute, five minutes, 10 minutes, half an hour.“I’ve still enough ambition and enough character to fight in difficult moments. I don’t give up easily. I fight till the end.“In my mind I was never thinking about a move (in January). I didn’t want to leave.”Benteke’s penalty kept him alongside Roberto Firmino, who got the first at Selhurst Park, as the club’s leading scorer with eight – although all the Brazil international’s goals have come in the Premier League.And the striker insists he had no personal doubts about stepping up for the spot-kick despite him previously failing to score in 2016.“When the referee pointed to the penalty spot straight away I said I would take the responsibility,” he told liverpoolfc.com.“No matter what, I had to take it and in my mind I was sure I was going to score.“I’m very happy to help the team and I have to say everyone worked really hard, especially Divock in attack.“It was easier for me at the end because they [Palace defenders] were a bit tired.“Hopefully I’m going to score a lot of goals between now and the end of the season but as long we win that is the main thing.” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp congratulates striker Christian Benteke for his winning goal
David De Gea: Could the goalkeeper be in his final season at Manchester United? Real Madrid have reportedly agreed to terminate the contract of Keylor Navas, clearing the way for the LaLiga giants to go all out for Manchester United’s David de Gea.Madrid have been heavily linked with De Gea over the years and it has been suggested they could firm up their long-standing interest with a big-money offer this summer.And, according to Spanish newspaper Don Balon, Madrid have now come to an agreement to let current first choice Navas leave the Bernabeu at the end of the season.Madrid have reportedly agreed to pay up the final three years on his contract just to get him off the books with a move for De Gea now expected.The 26-year-old has established himself as one of the best keepers in world football since his arrival at United from Atletico Madrid in 2011.But his time in the Premier League could be coming to an end with a return to his home city, where his long-term girlfriend still spends a lot of her time. 1
Lifford AC’s Ann Marie McGlynn was in superb form yesterday, winning the Ladies Race in the Waterside Half Marathon in Derry.Ann-Marie Mc Glynn of Liford AC. Pic Gary Foy.McGlynn is making a name for herself as one of the county’s premier female athletes both on the track and on the road.With national senior medals both indoor and outdoor, Ann Marie has extended these performances to the roads, winning the Tullamore Half Marathon only two weeks ago. The Waterside Half Marathon win, in a special year for Derry City, is another prestigious title added to the many accolades already collected this year.While McGlynn was collecting the Ladies prize, her fellow club athletes were also out in force in yesterday’s race, with over 30 athletes taking part.In the Mens 45 category, Bill Duncan was in fine form finishing in second place, while Danny Burns was also to the fore finishing second in the Mens 65 category. For some of the club’s more experienced athletes, there were personal best performances to enjoy at this stage of the season.Many club athletes were also taking part in their first Half Marathon, which for most was only a distant dream a few short months ago. The ability to get both to the start and finish lines is a credit to the stewardship of Danny Burns of an incredibly successful Fit4Life group. With over 100 such runners in the club, there is an old saying in athletics, you’ve got to walk before you can run. It is this philosophy of working each and every athlete step by step towards the best of his/her ability that has marked the Lifford club as one of the premier athletic clubs in the county.Around the course, there was a huge Lifford AC support, cheering each and every athlete towards home. Such support is invaluable, plays a big part in performances, and a big part of the journey home for every athlete.A few sore legs today but mixed with great sense of satisfaction from all the finishers. Well done to all.LIFFORD ACs McGLYNN WINS WATERSIDE HALF MARATHON was last modified: September 9th, 2013 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:Ann Marie McGlynnWaterside Half-Marathon
You have to admire animals. They have tricks humans still need to learn, and possess technologies that engineers are striving to imitate.Spiders: Don’t let the black widow scare you; it’s only a picture on Science Daily. Scientists are amazed at how these animals produce one of the best dragline silks in spiderdom. It is the strongest and toughest spider silk found so far. It can absorb enormous amounts of energy. They are just now teasing out the genes that produce the proteins that produce this ideal material. If we can learn to copy the secret formula, you may find it on your skin some day. It could lead to “lightweight super-strong body armor, components of medical devices and high-tech athletic attire.” That sounds both creepy and cool.Geckos: Speaking of spiders, spiderman outfits may soon become a reality. A team has succeeded in manufacturing “gecko tape” better than the gecko foot itself (for the physics of gecko foot adhesion, see 12/06/2006 and 08/27/2002). Reporting in PNAS,1 a team at University of Ohio claims their nanotube-based gecko tape is four times stronger than natural gecko feet (cf. 11/06/2006). It can adhere to almost any surface and just peel off for immediate reuse. The researchers envision applications in microelectronics, robotics and space applications – to which the imaginative reader can envision products for the shelves of Toys R Us. They didn’t mention if their tape is self-cleaning like a real gecko foot (01/04/2005). Now, if they can get the dispenser to eat flies and reproduce itself, they’ll really be onto something.Starfish, Insects, : We mammals pride ourselves on our advanced systems, but the so-called lower forms of life are not so low. A press release from the European Science Foundation remarked that the immune systems of invertebrates are “anything but simple.” The article gushes about how many surprising advanced technologies they have to resist disease. Their immune systems are even fine-tuned enough to prevent autoimmune reactions.Honeybees: Scientists used to think that the queen bee controlled the hive, like an autocrat, but new findings at University of North Carolina challenge that view and make the situation more complicated. Somehow, the experienced worker bees arrive at a consensus and signal one another when it is time to move the hive, says a report on Science Daily. The queen, in fact, is a passive recipient of signals. The workers tell her when to lay eggs, when to stop, and when to fly. Bees are the most-studied insects of all, but these findings are contrary to the received wisdom about beehive social behavior. How does the hive organize itself and make these important decisions without central leadership? Scientists are not sure, but know it involves additional signals apart from the familiar waggle dance they use to point to food sources. These signals include piping (vibrating their wings rapidly in contact) and vibration signals (a kind of grab-and-shake move). However it works, it produces group cooperation with “remarkable efficiency.” Maybe we should try these moves in the next business meeting. If someone isn’t cooperating, grab and shake.Electric fish: Loving couples who feel one another’s electricity should get a charge out of this. Some electric fish in African waters court one another with “electric duets,” reported a press release from Cornell University. The males “sing” to their mates with specialized electric pulses. It must be lovely in a fishy way; even, shall we say, stunning? 1Ge, Sethi, Ci, Ajayan, Dhinojwala, “Carbon nanotube-based synthetic gecko tapes,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, 10.1073/pnas.0703505104, published online before print June 19, 2007.Mention of evolution is usually rare in such stories. When brought up, it’s usually in the form of bald assertions of dogmatism (b.a.d.), like, “scientists showed that invertebrates have evolved elaborate ways to fight disease.” Such statements neither motivated the research nor explained it after the observations. Just brush off such fluff and get to the amazing facts.(Visited 23 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

Among other things, one of the iPhone’s competitive advantages is the unparalleled ecosystem of – no, not apps – accessories. But the iPhone 5’s new Lightning connector threatens to destroy that advantage.There are only a relatively small number of iPhone models with tens of millions of sales each, and they’ve all shared a common connector since their introduction five years ago. This situation has made easy and lucrative for enterprising businesses to sell everything from cases and chargers to speakers and alarm clocks. Heck, iPhones work with many peripherals originally designed for iPods, further expanding the options.Peripheral Market Is Boon For iPhoneThe availability of all those peripherals, in turn, has helped make the iPhone even more popular. iPhone buyers know that no other phone comes close to enjoying the choices and support that the iPhone has – in cars, in hotel rooms, at airports and everywhere else. By carrying an iPhone instead of a competing phone, they have a much better chance of being able to buy and use supporting infrastructure – which can make a big difference in the overall experience. The iPhone 5’s new Lightning connector threatens all that, and not just for iPhone 5 users.Adapters Not A Universal SolutionSure, Apple will sell $30 adapters to connect iPhone 5s to older iPhone peripherals – and you can look for the peripheral ecosystem to churn out plenty of alternative ways to make that connection.But it’s already clear that the while the adapters may be only a minor annoyance for some add-ons, they won’t work at all with others, including those that require an analog audio signal – video or iPod output.Then there’s the physical issue. While an adapter may work well with cable connections, using it with cradle-type peripherals could be problematic.Real-World ProblemsThis isn’t an abstract problem. In my family, we have at least half a dozen iPhone peripherals: speakers, clocks, stands, car-kits, chargers, and so on. With some, using an adapter should be fine. With others, it may not work at all. And others will be downgraded from elegant, integrated solutions to awkward, flimsy constructions constantly in danger of toppling over and dumping that brand-new expensive phone onto the cold, hard floor.And that’s just my family. “Oh God,” the Wall Street Jounal quotes the CEO of a Dallas-based hotel chain who just bought 600 clock radios with iPhone docks. Now he doesn’t know whether to stick with what he has and stock adapters, or replace the radios with iPhone 5-compatible ones. And what’s the right choice for the 400 new rooms his chain is building?The New York Times, meanwhile, is reporting that “the Lightning connector could be a boon to the hundreds of companies that sell accessories for iPhones and iPads.” Short Run vs. Long RunGreat for them, I guess. And great for Apple, which must make a pretty penny on each $30 adapter manufactured.At least, it’s great in the short run. Over time, though, the incompatible connections may make some potential buyers choose not to upgrade right away because they don’t want to replace their expensive peripherals. And others may feel that losing access to the existing iPhone infrastructure makes the iPhone 5 that much more similar to rivals from Android, Windows Phone 8, and BlackBerry.According to Apple, a new connector was required to make the iPhone 5 thinner and lighter. Certainly laudable goals that will matter a lot of many buyers. But when you look at how hard Apple worked to make sure that existing iPhone apps stayed compatible with the iPhone 5, you have to wonder why the company didn’t pay the same kind of attention to physical compatibility.
