4 de agosto de 2019. El colectivo A Call to Action on Puerto Rico / Un Llamado a la Acción por Puerto Rico, desde la diáspora rebelde, celebramos la renuncia de Ricardo Roselló. Es el triunfo de un pueblo ya harto de los abusos políticos, económicos y sociales perpetuados por los estados unidos y sus lacayos de patio en contra del pueblo puertorriqueño. Nuestro pueblo exige el fin del coloniaje y la destitución de todos los representantes del imperio colonial. Entendemos que la rápida sustitución de Pedro Pierluisi como gobernador colonial es un atento de la metrópoli por medio de su Junta Dictatorial de Control Fiscal de tratar de reestablecer su control, apaciguar la justa indignación del pueblo y mantener el orden colonial. Puertorriqueños en el archipiélago y la diáspora, de todos los sectores del pueblo, dejaron sus reclamos claros en las calles. Dijeron claramente que no aceptarán ningún gobierno de blanquitos, corruptos e inescrupulosos, junto con la junta dictatorial impuesta por los Estados Unidos. No habrá paz para el imperio ni para sus lacayos. Es hora para la descolonización. ¡Es hora para un Puerto Rico Libre!#Rossellórenuncia # Telegramgate #IndependenciaparaPuerto Rico #esadeudanoesnuestra #cancelthedebt #ACalltoActiononPuertoRicoContact us: [email protected] Page: A Call to Action on Puerto RicoInstagram: prcalltoactionprcalltoactionFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Carpentry, auto tech, welding and animal care were just a few of the fields students were able to check out. (WBNG) — 5th graders from across the Southern Tier made the trip to Broome-Tioga BOCES Thursday morning. All for a sneak peak into a wide array of careers. Educators say its important to show students all of their options. “I think letting kids know what an electrician does makes a difference and how to become one,” says Principal at the Center for Career and Technical Excellence Matt Sheehan. “Or how to become a carpenter for kids who really like working with their hands. Let’s change their philosophy as they get older,” he said. Over the two-day program more than 1,100 students will make the trip to BOCES to learn about potential careers.
“Ginger keeps us warm. Curcuma is good for stamina. Turmeric is good for digestion, so it can be consumed for weight loss. It is also good to increase the blood flow during menstruation,” Supriyanto said.The village’s fame drew the attention of Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo, who stopped by for a visit on Saturday morning, using the opportunity to see the jamu-making process. Ganjar himself tried Jamu Corona and said that it tasted good.“This is delicious! And it’s good for your health, too. It’s not a cure for novel coronavirus, but it can help protect you against the virus,” he said.Ganjar also told the people of Wonolopo Jamu village to protect themselves and their families against the outbreak.“Keep your distance from each other. Wear a face mask immediately if you feel sick. Don’t forget to wash your hands with soap as often as possible,” he said. As of Sunday morning, Indonesia has reported 450 confirmed COVID-19 cases, with 38 deaths. (dpk)Topics : Titi, a 60-year-old jamu brewer, explained that the drink was a mixture of brewed ginger, curcuma, turmeric and lemongrass, which she said would increase one’s stamina as well as boost the immune system.“Drink jamu routinely and exercise. Your body will be healthy and it won’t be easily attacked by viruses,” Titi said on Saturday. Another jamu maker, Supriyanto, told The Jakarta Post the benefits of each ingredient. Makers of jamu (herbal medicine) in the Wonolopo jamu village in Semarang, Central Java, have started producing a drink they claim can provide protection against COVID-19.The drink, called Jamu Corona, was concocted based on doctors’ suggestions for herbal recipes that can help strengthen the body’s immune system against viruses, they said.
Talk of a move away from Manchester City for Yaya Toure refuses to die down, despite Manuel Pellegrini’s best efforts.Manuel Pellegrini is adamant that Yaya Toure is happy at Manchester City, but Inter coach Roberto Mancini continues to talk up a potential move to San Siro.Toure’s form for City has come under scrutiny this season, leading to speculation that he could be on his way out of the Etihad Stadium. The Ivory Coast captain said earlier this week that he is “open to new challenges”, but Pellegrini – who has insisted Toure is still an important player at City – has not changed his stance on the subject.”Maybe a new challenge is City also,” Pellegrini said. “I’m sure Yaya is very happy here.”But Mancini – who was in charge at City when Toure joined the club in 2010 – has previously claimed that the former Barcelona midfielder wants to join him at Inter.And the ex-Galatasaray boss appears to be sticking by that statement. “Yaya Toure is a Manchester City player and they’re a massive club,” Mancini said.”I don’t know whether there’s a chance, but I think that given that Yaya has played in almost every European league, maybe it’s important to him to come to Italy. Inter are an important club, not just any old club. He can play anywhere in midfield.”–Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmith
By Julius Kullie Kanubah, Public Policy AnalystUpfront I must say: President George Weah’s comments and the attending press statement by his Office accusing the BBC Liberia correspondent of being against him and undermining his professed campaign for human rights in Liberia demonstrates a reckless act of political immaturity, but also a flippant and disingenuous act, manifesting loss of judgment.President Weah and his Office have without any empirical evidence – up to now – shown how and by what means journalist Jonathan Paye-Layleh has been “one person against” Mr. Weah or “undermining” his self-styled campaign of “advocating for justice and creating awareness to the gross human rights violations perpetrated against the Liberian people during the 14 years civil conflict.”The lack of specificity and evidence to the claims made against journalist Paye-Layleh, no doubt, seriously undermines and opens a credibility gap both on President Weah and his Office, just over two months into his presidency – which by all accounts has shown manifestations of leadership ambiguity and misjudgment.President Weah has two options to tackle this emerging credibility deficit: first, he needs to provide the facts on the exact circumstances and nature of his claims which can then be subjected to communicative rationality in the sense of discursive validity and invalidity.If this cannot be done, the second-best alternative is for President Weah and his Office to without much hesitation, recant the claims and apologize unreservedly to journalist Paye-Layleh. Especially, at a time Liberia is gripped with increasing political rhetoric and uncertainty on the future policy direction of the country in terms of good governance, it cannot be stressed that President Weah and his Office will be subjected to obvious suspicions in their relationship with the media and conscious minds within the public unless the truth surrounding his claims are made known.The President and his Office should be aware that in branding journalist Paye-Layleh as being “against” Weah in the past is a direct move to frame the journalist as an antagonist, if not, an adversary.Normative, neither is it a crime to be both. But …! In the context of Liberia, such characterization has huge repercussions as history has shown in light of mysterious deaths and cold-blooded murders as well as violent attacks on persons,including journalists considered to be “against” the President of the Land.Simply, the presumption here is that by finger-pointing a perceived antagonist or adversary, president Weah is telling his zealous supporters to beware of journalist Paye-Layleh – the man who has been “against” your ‘revolutionary leader’ and‘country giant’ over time. It means, it is him (Paye-Layleh) “against” Us (me -Weah and You – my followers).Clearly, it is a dangerous comment by President Weah, which when taken together with the co-constructed and factually flawed press statement by his Office directly puts the life of journalist Paye-Layleh at even greater risk.Unarguably, the rights of journalist Paye-Layleh to move freely and perform his journalistic work as a citizen of Liberia has now been endangered and substantially undermined.In a setting such as ours, no one, especially a consistently truth-seeking journalist of the orientation of Jonathan Paye-Layleh, can move psychologically peaceful when you are publicly depicted by a ‘populist’ president as someone who has been“against” him across time and space. Will President Weah, his government, and his fervent supporters ever believe the reportage of journalist Paye-Layleh, now and into the future? Unless the truth is told with evidence, President Weah has probably ruined the career of journalist Paye-Layleh, so rapidly by his vague accusation and vile attack by his Office. It is very painful for Paye-Layleh and the practice of journalism in Liberia. Paye-Layleh and Liberian journalism deserve a full understanding of this charge by President Weah and his Office.Additionally, president Weah and his Office should really be ashamed to think at the slightest of consciousness that journalist Paye-Layleh was “bent on … depicting a positive image of the carnage” in the context of his reportage of the 14 years of conflict in Liberia.Without mincing any words, this characterization is very dull for any reasonable mind to grasp as a belief, least to mention a president of a Republic or even an individual that should be called a press secretary to a President. It is not to say that president Weah or his press secretary is dull but their collective failure to represent the truth regarding journalist Paye-Layleh and his reportage for about quarter-of-a-century is the lowest point of their rather few weeks at the highest office in public sector governance.It was a timid and paranoid characterization, which mischaracterizes an impeccable and celebrated journalist! This needs to be retracted as soon as consciousness is gained.To be sure, president Weah and his press secretary either have not apprehended the nature of journalistic work in Liberia during the wartime and in post-conflict context or they did not follow the lengthy and painstaking investigative proceedings of Liberia’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and its Final Report.That might just be the sad truth! Hence, President Weah and his press secretary need to take time and read or re-read the TRC findings and recommendations to establish if journalist Paye-Layleh was ever branded as“depicting a positive image of the carnage” or whatever as Mr. Weah and his press secretary have co-constructed to gratify themselves and misrepresent the realities of the past.The facts are living: Journalist Paye-Layleh is one Liberian Citizen who has, despite many difficulties,diligently worked and reported on the Liberian nightmare even when Weah was comfortably living in Europe, genuinely earning hundreds of thousands of pounds for his extraordinary soccer abilities.While it is not disputed that Weah did play a role in creating awareness for peace and engaging in humanitarian services during the Liberian conflict, these were in all fairness sporadically done and mostly engineered by the ‘Goodwill Ambassador’ title rightly bestowed on him in April 1997 by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).President Weah and his Office must be told that their fight to decrease the journalistic legitimacy of Jonathan Paye-Layleh is a breeding ground for further confrontations with the media and the public. Journalists work and serve the ‘public interest’! – whether in an environment characterized by the political rhetoric of “Poverty Reduction”, “Agenda for Transformation” or the now overly pronounced “Pro-Poor” phraseology.If Weah and his Office are to reverse the negative path being self-created, they must learn that former president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf failed in her somewhat adversarial posture with journalists who she had mistakenly branded as “checkbook journalists,” even if checkbook journalism on the other hand really means that journalists pay sources for information rather than the other way around as framed by Mrs. Sirleaf.When Mrs. Sirleaf made the comment in the early months of her presidency in 2006, it served to define her interaction with journalists throughout her 12-year rule.To put it bluntly, Mrs. Sirleaf suffered in her relationship with journalists till she left power because of her ill-advised characterization of journalists and her dearth of understanding of the journalistic field as a shared discourse and one of struggles and contestations as well as negotiations of journalism’s identity and place in society.Former president Sirleaf, as the Press Union of Liberiathen Secretary General, Alphonsus Zeon, rightly described, spoke out of frustration and that she was a frustrated president when she made the accusation.It is tempting to say that president Weah might not have spoken out of frustration or he might not have been a frustrated president when he made the comments against journalist Paye-Layleh.But,his comments and the attending press statement by his Office in the aftermath of journalist Paye-Layleh’s genuine request for valid clarification on Weah’s claims represent a reckless act of political immaturity and the lowest point of the Weah presidency, so far.Contrary to the claim by the Office of the president, it cannot be a “determination to foster peace, reconciliation and forgiveness” or “expressing … feelings in the spirit of genuine reconciliation and national unity”when a president accuses a journalist without producing any evidence. If this is the understanding of President Weah and his Office of the delicate subject of reconciliation and national unity in Liberia, then, it is rather too thin, and one can envisage that Liberia is headed for troubles in the coming days and months of the Weah Presidency.Is President Weah and his government ready for every Liberian to follow his “footsteps by expressing their feelings” in accusatory tones as he has done with Paye-Layleh? Also, the response by one of Weah’s officials at the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT), Eugene Fahngon, that the President was exercising his rights to freedom of speech when he made the claims against journalist Paye-Layleh and to which journalists must uphold and defend, is rather terribly flimsy, shortsighted and opportunistic.No journalist or any Liberian has questioned President Weah’s rights to freedom of speech or to represent his ideas and feelings in lieu of his claims against journalist Paye-Layleh.The fact of the matter is that the President is being simply requested to do what is required as one central basis of freedom of speech: he must back his claims by being specific and more importantly produce evidence.How can this be a situation that the President’s comments are being “misconstrued,” Mr. Fahngon? Something might be horribly wrong with this Weah official and his conception of the term “misconstrued!”In discourses within the public sphere, to request evidence as the first step to engage in meta-communication best reflects communicative rationality and pluralistic agonist than a “misconception.” Thus, the President and his Office together with the official Eugene Fahngon must be communicative rational enough rather than being disingenuous and engaging in a reckless act of political immaturity to decrease the trust to interaction of journalist Paye-Layleh.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions have started the world’s first major research program on autonomous floating vessels in metropolitan areas. The program, named Roboat, is the world’s first major research program on autonomous floating systems that focusses on moving people and goods, portable infrastructure and data gathering.Roboat aims to design and deploy the world’s first fleet of autonomous boats in the city of Amsterdam from 2017. The project has a budget of 25 million euros and the initial phase will last for five years.With over 1,000 kilometers of canals, 1,500 bridges and a long-standing focus on urban innovation, the city of Amsterdam is an ideal place to test new, water-based mobility solutions.The canal system was once the key functional urban infrastructure of the city and today still plays a major role in recreation and tourism. Amsterdam’s waters, including bridges, canals, and the IJ river and its docks, offer plenty of opportunity to help solve current issues with transportation, mobility, and water quality.Moving beyond public transport to public servicePortable infrastructure is an interesting component of the project as cities experience high and low peaks of people over time, for instance when a major event takes place, rush hours starts or a during a festival. Roboat will explore the possibilities of floating infrastructures like bridges that move to the place it is needed most, extending the shore with moveable objects, or make a pop-up stage in the middle of a body of water.Roboat aims to gather data on environmental aspects like water quality, air quality and noise, but also aims to explore ways to detect diseases at an early stage in cities, find more efficient ways to clear the canals from floating waste or new approach to dredging out the 12,000 bicycles a year which end up in the Dutch city’s canals.“Water is the bearer of life. By focusing on the water system of the city, ROBOAT can create opportunities for new environmental sensing methods and climate adaptation. This will help secure the city’s quality of life and lasting functionality,” says Arjan van Timmeren, professor and scientific director at AMS.With 80 percent of global economic output generated around coasts, riverbanks, and deltas and 60 percent of the world population living in these areas, researchers anticipate that outcomes from the ROBOAT projects could become a reference for other urban areas around the world and a source of international entrepreneurial initiatives and start-ups in which autonomy enters the marine world.

Jonathan Martin, whose NFL career looked to be in jeopardy as he faced fire for claiming he was bullied by Miami Dolphin teammate Richie Incognito, officially started anew Thursday. With the passing of his physical, he became a member of the San Francisco 49ers.“It’s a blank slate for me,” Martin said in a conference call from 49ers headquarters Thursday night. “I’m looking to revitalize my career, getting back to playing … I couldn’t be happier.”The Dolphins are glad to be rid of Martin, who just could not return to the team after the national controversy that followed his claims. Miami will receive a seventh-round draft pick from the Niners if Martin is on their opening-day roster.Martin left the Dolphins last fall after accusing teammate Incognito of bullying in a scandal that overshadowed the franchise’s 8-8 season. An investigation conducted by Ted Wells for the NFL determined last month that Incognito and two other offensive linemen engaged in persistent harassment of Martin, another offensive lineman, and an assistant trainer.Martin said he has moved beyond the tumult.“I’m not worried about that,” he said. “All that’s in the past at this point.”The trade reunites Martin with Jim Harbaugh and several other members of the 49ers’ staff who coached him at Stanford. Harbaugh was supportive of Martin throughout the scandal and vouched for him in the Wells report.“I think it worked out great to once again be playing for Coach Harbaugh, once again in the Bay Area,” Martin said. “Playing for a winning franchise, a team that’s had a lot of recent success. And to hopefully be able to contribute to further success with this team. … It’s been a warm welcome.”Martin, who is taking classes at Stanford, likely will be the sixth man on the 49ers’ line and will be a swing tackle. He could potentially play guard, although he never has played at the spot.“I have to earn my spot on this team,” Martin said. “I’m open to anything. (Retirement) didn’t even cross my mind. I’m a football player. . . Hopefully, I will retire after a 10-year career.”
The Northern Irish coach has been appointed as the Foxes coach after almost three years with Scottish Premier League club Celtic.After four years of his last English Premier League adventure, Northern Irish manager Brendan Rodgers has returned to England to coach.He has been appointed as the new Leicester City boss with a contract until June 2022.Rodgers spent two and a half seasons at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premier League.“It feels great, it’s obviously come very quickly and obviously, of course, over the last few days, but I know I’m joining a fantastic club that has grown so quickly over these last few years,” Rodgers told LCFC TV.“I’m just delighted to be here. I think there was a number of reasons [why I joined]. I was certainly in no hurry to leave Celtic. Celtic is a club that’s a huge club worldwide, a renowned club, and I loved working with the players there.”“We were on a journey of great success over these last years but when the opportunity came to talk to Leicester and I was able to analyze it, it allowed me to think that I’d probably achieved and taken the club may be at Celtic as far as I could at this moment,” he added.“The opportunity to speak with Leicester and find out their ambitions and where we can grow the club and the training facility. Of course, the big attraction for me is working with the players.””I’m joining a fantastic club.” 🔵Hear from our new First Team Manager as we say #WelcomeBrendan 👇Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.— Leicester City (@LCFC) February 26, 2019“It’s a young squad, a very dynamic squad, it’s got huge potential and you’ve got some of the players with good experience also. There was a number of factors in being here and, as I say, I’m absolutely delighted,” he continued.“Coming into the club at this point of the season, it’s never normally ideal, but it gives me the chance to observe and analyze the players over this last period of games.”“I know it’s been a really difficult season for the Club on and off the pitch. It’s been really emotional in many ways,” Rodgers added.“For me, it’s the case of just trying to stabilize the emotion of everything that’s happened this season and looking to inspire the players so that they can then inspire the supporters.”“Myself and my staff will come in and we’ll look to immediately put in place our philosophy and that identity that my teams normally play with and hopefully then over the course of time, the supporters will recognize that and they’ll come to enjoy it,” he concluded.#WelcomeBrendan 🦊— Leicester City (@LCFC) February 26, 2019
