Break new ground MOST READ Caron Butler could only smile as he looked back on his 14-year NBA career.ADVERTISEMENT Though he was traded after the season to Washington, that was enough for the 6-foot-7 forward to sign a 5-year, $46-million deal with the Wizards as he, Gilbert Arenas, and Antawn Jamison formed the team’s “Big Three,” with Butler providing the toughness that earned him the nickname, “Tough Juice.”Looking at today’s NBA, Butler is glad to see that most of the superstars exemplify the same grit he had back in his heyday.“Russell Westbrook is relentless, aggressive, and he plays at an unbelievable pace. Kawhi Leonard, James Harden, and Kevin Durant are also some who have that ‘tough juice.’ Lebron James shows no signs of slowing down. There’s a lot of amazing talent in the league right now and I could go on forever,” he said.It shouldn’t come as a surprise, too, that these are the guys who Butler believes are capable of winning the Most Valuable Player award this year.“Lebron, KD, and Harden are my safe bets. If we’re gonna go out of the box, it’s Kyrie Irving and John Wall. But my wild card off the left field, it’s Blake Griffin,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT End of his agony?

Brumskine Wants Issuing of Visas at RIA Banned

first_imgLiberty Party (LP) political leader Cllr. Charles Brumskine has called for the absolute ban on visas being issued at Roberts International Airport (RIA) to ensure that anyone arriving in Liberia is duly vetted. Cllr. Brumskine in a statement yesterday at the party’s headquarters in Monrovia said that nobody entering Liberia on a visitor’s visa must have his/her stay extended beyond the original period granted. “If it becomes necessary for a visitor’s stay to be extended, the decision to extend it should not be made by the Bureau of Immigration & Nationalization alone, or any other single agency of Government, but by a committee consisting of representatives of each of the agencies that make up the joint security,” he suggested.He said the recent waves of terror activities around the world have highlighted the expanding reach of global terrorism and its international terror network which has expanded and become more deadly. He further proposed that a person entering Liberia on a visitor’s visa should not be allowed to adjust his/her status to that of a resident, and the requirement that a person applying for a visa to enter Liberia must provide the name of a host, with a verifiable address and telephone number. “Unless the host is self-employed, the address and telephone number of the employer of the visitor’s host should be carefully enforced and anyone intending to work in Liberia should be allowed admission into the country only if she/he is in possession of a Resident Visa,” he said. He said all legal requirements, such as the local employer applying to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for a Resident Visa, and the issuance of a Labor Clearance by the Ministry of Labor, as a condition preceding the granting of a Resident Visa must have been complied with. “The capacity of Consulate Sections of Liberian Missions abroad should be enhanced to ensure thorough vetting of visa applicants.” He said, “Officers of the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) should be retrained to specifically handle terrorism and border patrol officers within the BIN should be trained and assigned to patrol the borders.”Luggage, including carry-on of all passengers entering and leaving Liberia should be vigorously inspected at every port and border control point, he said. Cllr. Brumskine said religious leaders, including Christians, Muslims and traditional leaders should begin informative and educational programs that teach that true religions don’t support violence and that no one should encourage, assist, or acquiesce in terrorist activities. He also proposed that Liberia should work in collaboration with the Mano River Union States of Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea, and Sierra Leone to initiate discussions on joint education/awareness programs for residents of border communities about terrorism, how to protect themselves, their neighbors and those in neighboring countries. “Terrorism is no longer about atrocious violence and evil in some distant lands like Asia, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, or even East Africa. It now occurs in our neighborhood, within the West African region, with nearly half of all deaths caused by terrorism in 2015 occurring in the ECOWAS theatre of operations,” he said. He named Nigeria as being on the frontline of this battle, and Mali, the latest victim. As we have seen, he said “victims are of all religions, all races, all nationalities, all ethnic groups, all ages, and all socioeconomic classes. No one gets a free pass, and we will all bear the burden unless we work together to ensure that we are all safe.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

NASSCORP Has Done It Again!

first_imgAfter erecting that beautiful, imposing structure at ELWA Junction, which now houses the Liberia Revenue Authority, the National Social Security Corporation (NASSCORP) quickly acquired the property next door and is now putting up another multistoried building, which they say is to be used for a diagnostic center to help modernize the nation’s healthcare delivery system. This new building is very near completion and NASSCORP Managing Director Dewitt von Balmoos yesterday told the Daily Observer that the diagnostic center should be in operation by mid-year.Asked how he came to think of such an important facility which is not too common around here, he joked, “Every now and then I come up with some bright ideas.”But there is more that this young, dynamic and visionary public servant and his great public corporation are doing. Now they have nearly completed their new headquarters at 24th Street. We guess that within a year they will be moving in. The building NASSCORP currently occupies is also its own, but he said it has grown too small for its operations, so they had to acquire more land, on which they have now built their new head office.And to demonstrate that NASSCORP is not just a big organization, but one with a big heart, it has shown compassion for its new 24th Street neighbors. NASSCORP has constructed a concrete road leading from its building at Tubman Boulevard leading all the way to the Atlantic beach where 24th Street ends. This has made NASSCORP’s new neighbors very happy, for during the Rains they have had to contend with a lot of water and even mud; while during the Dry, there is the swirling dust.One thing more we have recently learnt of NASSCORP. Mr. von Balmoos says they plan to build regional offices in every county, and are later this week traveling to Kakata, Margibi County to inspect their nearly completed headquarters there.We wonder how those who ran NASSCORP during the Doe, Taylor and Gyude Bryant regimes feel today? Many of them did nothing but loot the corporation, and when the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf administration took them, among others, to court, the Liberian courts gave them a carte blanche passage to freedom! They and some other looters, not only from NASSCORP but even the Finance and other Ministries, built big buildings in various parts of Monrovia, and are today boasting that they are rich. What riches when you have to bow your heads in public, self-convicted with the guilt of ill-gotten “wealth?” Jesus asks the question, “What does it profit a man—or person—if he gains the whole world and loses his soul?”We wonder further what happened to all the financial resources of the Liberia Maritime Authority (LMA) under the watch of its powerful former Commissioner, Binyah Kesselly. Yes, the LMA paved a good part of the Marshall Road, and fixed its training buildings in Marshall City. Maritime also paid for workers to keep the Monrovia beaches clean—for a while. But where else did Maritime’s millions of United States dollars go? We pray that most other public servants will emulate the pristine example of DeWitt von Balmoos, NASSCORP Managing Director. Would that we had more public servants like him, Liberia would be one of the fastest developing nations in Africa.

Prolonged dry season increases chances of landfill fires – site supervisor

first_imgHaags Bosch dumpsiteAn extensive dry season in Guyana can increase the possibility of landfill fires at the Haags-Bosch dumpsite, Eccles, East Bank Demerara, if precautionary measures are not taken beforehand.This is according to the Site Supervisor for the Communities Ministry, Lloyd Stanton, who related last week that a dry season will intensify these chances, but close monitoring can prevent such occurrences.“A prolonged dry season in the worst-case scenario, the only thing we have to look out for is fires. Prolonged dry season is going to increase our chances of getting a fire but once we continue our monitoring as done… most of the pickers know what to look out for, most of the staff know what to look out for,” Stanton said.As an experienced recruit in this field, it was highlighted that workers onsite can lookout for smells and soil textures that can indicate if something seems uncanny.“One of the simplest signs is being past the required heat before bursting into fire is the smell of rotten eggs. It means that down there is getting very hot and it’s likely to burst into flames. Another things is that the area becomes very fluid. You would find that when a machine moves on it, the machine is vibrating extra than usual.”This means the layers of garbage beneath the ground are heating up which calls for immediate attention.“It’s getting very hot so what we would do in cases like that is we have a fire tender available on site. We just go and create a small opening and we keep dousing water so the water runs down and cool that area.”Stanton is positive that as long as workers take up the mantle of close observation, landfill fires can be prevented.“It just means that we have to increase our monitoring but that’s the main downside of having an extended dry season. The prevalence of fire increases.”In 2015, a fire erupted at the dumpsite and was extinguished after many weeks of combined efforts. After consuming the site and affecting many nearby residents, workers managed to restore the landfill and it has been up and running ever since. New equipment, such as shredders and a tarpaulin deployer, were also installed to assist with innovative waste composting and storage.last_img read more

Are We Entering the Dark Ages of Mobile Apps?

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement During this self-same era, I worked as a freelance web developer and designer and was therefor subject to all manner of requests. I turned down bids for veterinarians who wanted their website to bark and chirp at visitors and I regularly ignored requests for background music, mystery meat navigation and irrelevant weather widgets. I simply refused to plague the Web with such terrible design and, I feel, singlehandedly saved several hundred folks, at the very least, from visiting yet another site with an animated “Under Construction” GIF. That, I felt, was part of my job.Since that era of multi-font, multi-color websites, however, we’ve seen a movement to standardization. Businesses, instead of creating their own online presence, have come to rely on sites like Google, Facebook, Yelp and any number of other online services. The restaurant manager and the veterinarian are no longer moonlighting as creative directors, they simply fill in the blanks and it all gets plugged into a user-friendly, uniform online presence.If DIY, drag-and-drop mobile Web app creators are the future, however, then we may come full circle. We may return to the land of irrelevant features and terrible design just yet. These apps may handle the complex coding aspect of creating a mobile presence, but they don’t teach the end-user the most important skills – design and user experience.It all dawned on me when one of these companies got up on stage and showed off how quickly and easily anyone with a Web browser could create their own app. Look, they said. You can add a map. You’re a restaurant – you can add your menu. And while your at it, why not add a tip calculator?It is but a short mental leap from tip calculator to word find puzzles for the kids and trivia games for the whole family. What do you think? Will the next generation of user-created mobile Web apps be the resurgence of the Geocities generation? Or is that beast well-contained and a relic of our folkloric past, only to be found in the dark corners of the Internet and in the archives of the Wayback Machine? What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … mike melanson Related Posts The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Between LAUNCH and DEMO, this last week has seen more than its fair share of startups. Among these companies, we’ve seen a number of DIY mobile app creation tools throw their hat into the ring and promise a world where getting your company into someone’s hands is as simple as dragging and dropping a couple of buttons. With all of these democratizing, empowering tools hitting the market, there’s just one question – are we about to relive the era of tag text and marquee side-scrolling banner ads?In the late 1990s, the Web was the new promise land, and programs like Microsoft Frontpage brought optimistic adventurers to the Information Super Highway. Rather than dealing with cryptic HTML, users could create websites as easily as they could format documents in a word processor. It was freeing, it was democratizing and it was absolutely terrible.

J&K head constable’s son clears UPSC exam in first try

first_imgA constable’s son from volatile south Kashmir and aspirants from far-off places like the Pir Panchal Valley were among 14 candidates from Jammu and Kashmir who cleared the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examination on Wednesday.Suhail Qasim, 26, son of head constable Mohammad Qasim Mir, secured the 125th position.
