4 Injured, Clouding Sinoe Ramadan Celebrations

first_imgThe celebration of the end of Ramadan in Greenville, Sinoe County nearly turned into a funeral when a bloody motorcycle accident occurred, involving three Muslim children and an adult – a female.Two motorcycles collided in Panama, Kpanyan District about fifteen minutes ride from Greenville.A female adult passenger sustained severe injury to her legs while the three Muslim children had relatively minor injuries.Scores of people from the Muslim Community, especially the women who visited the hospital, were seen with their prayer beads, muttering the name of “Allah” – most certainly thanking God or “Allah” for sparing the lives of the victims.According to motorbike rider Karnu Jalloh, 15, they were celebrating the end-of-the-Ramadan riding on the bike when the other motorcyclist drove into his bike which had his brother and a friend.Most of the Muslims were “decently and beautifully dressed.” Families are usually in uniform (dressed alike).Mr. Mohammed Sow, a member of the Fulah community, said the survival of their children is an indication that “Allah has answered our prayers and we are happy.”According to medical reports, the three children were discharged, but the driver and the female passenger have been hospitalized and responding to treatment.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Exclusive – Drogba will have bit-part role for Chelsea this season, claims Walker

first_imgFormer Chelsea winger Clive Walker believes returning Blues legend Didier Drogba will have to settle for the role of ‘super-sub’ at Stamford Bridge this season.Drogba sealed a dramatic south west London homecoming on Friday, signing a one-year deal for the side he fired to Champions League glory in 2012.The 36-year-old netted 157 goals in 341 appearances during his eight-year initial stay at Stamford Bridge, and the frontman was named Chelsea’s greatest ever player in a poll of fans following his exit.And while Walker admits Drogba may find his playing time reduced, with £32million summer signing Diego Costa likely to be Jose Mourinho’s favoured sole striker, the ex-Blues man believes he could still have a big impact at the club this term.“Drogba was a fantastic scorer and a great talisman for the club for eight years, but I don’t think you can look back on that now, it’s a new period in his career,” he told Kick Off.“It will remain to be seen if he starts many games next season, it will all depend on the fitness of Diego Costa, Fernando Torres and possibly Romelu Lukaku as well.“But his own fitness will be a big factor. At 36, can he still produce at that level for 90 minutes?“I think we can all agree that Drogba won’t be a starting player for Chelsea this season, but my initial feeling is, what a man to bring on with 20 minutes to go!“He will give a huge boost to the team and the fans, he’ll lift the whole of Stamford Bridge when he enters the field.“He’ll certainly still be a danger, there’s no doubt about that. If he’s in the penalty area and you put the balls in the box he will score goals. He’s still a gamechanger.“He’s got that love for the football club, which will give him a huge lift and I’m sure he can raise his game to the necessary level to play for a club like Chelsea again.”last_img read more

BRICS Summit: all eyes on Durban

first_img26 March 2013All eyes will be on Durban on Tuesday as the much-anticipated 5th BRICS Summit gets under way at the city’s International Convention Centre.The leaders of Brazil, Russia, India and China will join South African President Jacob Zuma in hammering out far-reaching finance issues for the bloc, the possible formation of a new development bank targeting BRICS and other emerging markets.Security has been tightened around the Convention Centre, with 3 000 law enforcement officers deployed in Durban for the duration of the event.More than 5 000 delegates are expected to attend the summit, which South Africa is hosting for the first time since joining the group of influential emerging economies in 2010.Observers have said the summit will give South Africa the opportunity to flex its diplomatic muscle and seal its position within the grouping.Other issues on the agenda include the role of BRICS as a partner in helping the continent in its infrastructure development and industrialisation drive. At the 2011 BRICS summit in Sanya, China, the leaders pledged their commitment to Africa’s industrialisation.There will also be the launch of a BRICS Business Council to promote increased trade within the bloc.At a briefing in Pretoria on Tuesday, President Zuma said the country’s BRICS membership fitted well with its National Development Plan (NDP), a policy blueprint for creating jobs and tackling poverty and inequality through development.The two-day summit is expected to inject more than R100-million into Durban’s economy.Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Early Adopters: Check Out Gist’s iPhone App

first_imgGist is a new service that tracks your contact lists from email and social networks, prioritizes them and helps you quickly view what those people have been up to across blogs, Twitter and elsewhere. The company just released an iPhone app this morning (iTunes link) and what more could you ask for? Instant context for people you’re just about to call, meet with or have on your mind?Unfortunately, the service doesn’t work very well yet. The social web is a mess of disconnected identity and activity data; cleaning it all up, tying it together and delivering it on the fly to your phone is an ambitious goal, but that’s one of the things Gist is trying to do. Gist lets you see all kinds of data from contacts, key companies and event attendees. Right now there is some value in what the app serves up. If you’re willing to spend some time manually fixing up the streams associated with various contacts, then you could get a lot out of it right away. We reviewed the Gist web app last month and liked what we saw so far.Unfortunately, it’s very hard for any app like this to determine which social network profiles are really associated with the same people and which news coverage about a person is worth reading. (Hopefully the WebFinger protocol will help solve this problem for everyone someday.) If you try out the app you’ll see that the signal-to-noise ratio is too weak to make for efficient, quick reading – but a quick scan for a contact’s information could still help unearth some relevant information. It may be limited, a few weeks late and often incorrect – but savvy early adopters can still get some value out of it already. It’s frustrating in more ways than I’m sure anyone cares to read about, but it’s also worth trying out in hopes that the company will really nail it down the road. I know I sure want this to work.Gist told me today that it is working with the Google Social Graph API for account discovery and MSpoke for disambiguation and content recommendations. Cleaning up the data is still the company’s biggest challenge and one they’ve been working on from the start. The Google Social Graph API is a particularly gnarly tool for many startups like this – it’s dependent on markup that too few people use and even fewer people use correctly.None the less, you should give the Gist app a try if you’d like to see a vision of where the future could go. The fact that a team of very smart people with a good sum of venture capital invested is going to require more time to try and really nail the discovery of relevant, high-quality person-centric streams of information demonstrates what a challenge this important task really is.
