New, Incumbent appointees Struggle for Power in Bassa

first_imgThe appointment of new local leaders in the various districts of Grand Bassa County has resulted in a power struggle between the newly appointed and the incumbents, who are refusing to relinquish their respective offices/positions. Those replaced included Diaplae Statutory District #1 Superintendent Samuel Karmenjay, who was replaced by Worr Administrative District Commissioner, Samuel Moore; Edward L. Beyan replaces Commissioner Oretha Taya of Hoe Barn Township in District #2; Peter Naleh replaces CommissionerJeremiah Gardee of Gorblee Administrative District #3 ‘A’; and James Kannan, who replaces Commissioner James Taylue of Blezee Administrative District #3 ‘B’.Ozinga Gborhwie replaces Commissioner Mathew Gibson of Dogbarn Glaydor Administrative District #4, while Daniel Dayougar, replaces Commissioner David Gborgar of Vambo Township in District #2 ‘A’; Othello Russell replaces Commissioner Agnes Artis of Lloydsville Township in District #1, but a former District #1 lawmaker, Austin Spiller, replaces former Edina City Mayor Etweda Cooper and former Grand Bassa County superintendent. In separate interviews with this newspaper, the incumbents said that they will not give up their offices to the incoming officials because the office of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has not informed them of their replacement.“The central government has not informed us via any genuine communication as to whether we have been relieved of our respective posts,” the replaced officials claimed.Therefore, they vowed to remain in their various offices “until the President can officially write us and state the reasons for our dismissal or replacement.”However, when contacted for verification, Grand Bassa County Information Officer Eddie Williams told this newspaper that the replacement of the local leaders was done by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf through a recent communication.He said Superintendent J. Levi Demman only implemented the President’s pronouncement, which was not his own, as it has been widely speculated.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Qantas introduces digital boarding passes on trans-Tasman routes

first_imgThe days of queuing for printed boarding passes are over for Qantas passengers travelling between Australia and New Zealand .The airline announced Friday that customers travelling between the neighbouring countries can now use mobile check-in and digital boarding passes in a “first step towards more seamless travel across the Tasman’’.It said the technology allowed eligible customers travelling between Australia and New Zealand to finalise check-in and passport checks online and head straight to the lounge or boarding gate after passing through immigration and security.Customers with baggage will be able to be able to use dedicated bag drops and those eligible for Express Path access will have it embedded in the digital boarding pass.The system will apply to all passport holders, although some visa restrictions apply, travelling on direct Qantas marketed and operated services between Australia and New Zealand.But the airline also wants to expand the system to other international destinations.“Seamless domestic travel has been a reality since Qantas pioneered smart check-in technology in 2010, but the barriers have always been a lot higher for international flights,” Qantas International chief executive Gareth Evans said in a statement.“It’s a great example of how industry and Government working together can change what’s possible for travellers. The goal is ultimately to make this technology for international routes the ‘new normal’.’’Qantas will initially offer the technology through its web and mobile sites but plans to incorporate it into its app from June.It will also start looking at progressively extending the service to other international destinations from mid-year and expects it to be installed in all relevant airports by early 2018.last_img read more

Real Madrid can still win La Liga – Zidane

first_imgReal Madrid Real Madrid can still win La Liga – Zidane defiant on title hopes Jamie Smith 22:09 3/2/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(7) Zinedine Zidane Getty Images Real Madrid Primera División Getafe Real Madrid v Getafe Barcelona v Atlético Madrid Barcelona Atlético Madrid Zinédine Zidane His side may be 15 points behind leaders Barcelona, but the two-time Champions League-winning boss thinks the gap can still be bridged Zinedine Zidane maintains Real Madrid can win the La Liga title for the second year running, despite his side sitting 15 points behind rivals Barcelona.Defeat at Espanyol last time out leaves Madrid with a huge task to catch Barca over the 12 remaining games, although on Thursday Ernesto Valverde’s men were held to a 1-1 draw at lowly Las Palmas.Atletico Madrid are putting pressure on Barca, Diego Simeone’s side taking 37 points from the last 42 on offer to cut the gap to five ahead of their trip to Camp Nou on Sunday.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Madrid have a chance to move closer to the top two with a home game against Getafe on Saturday, with Zidane still believing Los Blancos can defend their title.”What we have to do is win games, that’s all,” Zidane told a pre-match news conference on Friday. “Keep going to the end of the season. That’s what we have to do and that’s what we have to think about.”It’s not easy to go out and win all the games but it’s what the players have to try and do. If we’re always motivated and thinking about the game, then we can achieve something great. “There’s always a league – it’s right to the end for every team. Perhaps everyone thinks the league is over but in football you can never give up. That’s what we have to do. We have to get it into our heads that our remaining league games are important.”We’re going to fight until the end of the league. It’s complicated but it’s not impossible, that’s the difference between what I say and what you [the media] say. It’s difficult, it’s very difficult, but it’s not impossible.”We went on a run of five wins, that’s football. Last Tuesday against Espanyol, we were angry to lose but we didn’t expect to lose. We made some mistakes. When things go wrong you can’t just think about that, you have to look at the positives. Think about what we were doing before.”It will be difficult, yes, but it won’t be impossible. Look what’s happening between the first and second teams, only five points different. Did you expect that? If Atletico win then it’s only two points. Did anyone expect that? The league still exists and I’m an optimist, always, until the very end.”@Cristiano’s goals @GetafeCFHe has scored 21 times against Getafe in LaLiga!  #RMLiga— Real Madrid C.F. (@realmadriden) March 1, 2018Inconsistency has dogged Madrid this season, Zidane’s side recording three heavy home wins in succession in La Liga, although they have failed to beat Fuenlabrada, Numancia and Leganes in the Copa del Rey at the Santiago Bernabeu.And Zidane called for Madrid to renew their focus for Saturday’s home game with Getafe, although attention is being drawn to Tuesday’s clash with Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.”We’ve just lost a game and we want to do all we can to go and get a victory,” Zidane said. “We’ve got to do the most we can on the pitch, we studied the opponent but we concentrate on ourselves. We have to go out and give everything.”All the teams play well, it’s the reality of playing against good, motivated teams. They’ll be really focused, it’s one of the biggest games of the year for them. We have to go into these games in the same way.”Anyone can have an opinion and feelings about how the squad is, if we are in good shape or not. What I think is we have won nothing yet. What I like to think is the games we have coming up give us a chance to show our quality and prove ourselves.”We played well in the first game [against PSG] and against Espanyol we played well too. But nothing is certain in football. You don’t know what you can achieve and that will always be the same. Tomorrow is a big game and we have to show the form we’re in.”last_img read more
