Femi SolajaThe Executive Secretary of Benue State Internal Displaced People (IDP) Emmanuel Antswen, has commended the officials of National League One (NLO) who visited the camp last week to donate sporting equipment to the displaced citizens.He said the visit from the sports family will motivate some of the youths in the camp to start a new life and their future can be a success story like that of Chelsea FC star, Victor Moses and Nura Mohammed. Moses was said to have been a victim of displaced citizens some years ago during the outbreak of religious riot in Southern Kaduna and his potentials in the round leather game exiled him to United Kingdom and today he is a first team player of the both the Super Eagles and FC Chelsea in the English Premiership.Another football star, Nura Mohammed, is also an internally displaced citizen. He was a victim of Boko Haram insurgency in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital. He took to plying his skills in football on the streets of Maiduguri before being spotted.He grew up as an orphan in the city having lost both parents before he was six years old. Football was the only succour for him.He enjoyed playing the game with some of his childhood friends.Mr. Antswen urged other public agencies and philanthropists to emulate the unique gesture shown by NLO.“We are more impressed with their visit because aside educational reliefs that we have received in abundant, sports is another way for most of the displaced youths to begin a new life with the cases of Victor Moses and Nura Mohammed as classical examples.“This is a good way for them to starting a new life and you people have shown us that we can use sports to enable them rediscovered their potentials and of all those who had visited and commiserate with us, I think NLO stands unique,” he remarked.The NLO delegation was led by its Chairman, Mohammed Alkali, Chief Executive Officer, Ahmed Kawu, and the Chief Operating Officer of the league body, Olushola OgunnowoThe items were received at the stateâ€™s Emergency Agency warehouse,The state agency headed by Special Assistant to Benue State government on Emergency, Emmanuel Antswen, took the delivery of the items.In his response, the NLO chairman, said this is the only little way NLO can contribute to the development of these youths in IDP camps, this will encourage them to pick up their life and believe that all is not lost.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Brown said he returned a phone call from a probation officer regarding Schaffer’s sentencing and answered questions. It is not known what he said because the pre-sentencing report remains sealed. Schaffer, 53, received 13 months in federal prison Feb. 12 after pleading guilty in 2005 to a charge of using a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. The term fell short of the 21 months recommended by prosecutors. Schaffer showed remorse during sentencing, but a comment by U.S. District Court Judge John F. Walter – who said Brown’s statement about Schaffer brought “balance” to his decision – struck a nerve. According to transcript excerpts from the sentencing, Walter said Brown “provided a glowing recommendation” for Schaffer that gave the “balance that we need to approach the sentencing” in an emotional case related to the slaying of Burbank police Officer Matthew Pavelka. The rookie officer was killed in a 2003 shootout with suspected Vineland Boys members. Another officer, Gregory Campbell, was wounded and partially paralyzed. “I had his blood on my hands and on my uniform,” Detective Chris Canales, who saw Pavelka at the scene of the shooting, told airport commissioners. “And unfortunately, Mr. Brown, now you do.” Brown, who was appointed in November 2001 to represent the city on the commission, was unavailable for comment Friday. Responding to criticism during Tuesday’s commission meeting, he said he was being tried without hard evidence. “All I’ve heard today were opinions of what I said,” he said. “Anyone who thinks I would deliberately tarnish the reputation of the police association has another think coming.” Brown served 41 years with Burbank police and was president of the police union. He knew Schaffer, a Glendale businessman who served on the Glendale Water and Power Commission, for at least five years, and had ties with former Burbank City Councilwoman Stacey Murphy, Schaffer’s then-girlfriend. Murphy, who was caught with cocaine, guns and ammunition at her home during the 2005 Vineland Boys probe, resigned from office and pleaded guilty to drug and child-endangerment charges. “I ask myself how a five- to seven-year social relationship can overcome 40 years of blood, sweat and tears as a Burbank police officer,” Lt. Pat Lynch of the Burbank Police Officers Association told airport commissioners. “(It’s) a slap in the face to every active Burbank police officer.” But Bob Yousefian, a Glendale city councilman and airport commissioner, said any judgment against Brown is premature without knowing what he actually said. “Don has been a very straight guy, a straight shooter,” he said. “He has always had the interest of Burbank in mind. Still, Burbank Councilwoman Marsha Ramos insisted that Brown step down. “I have lost all confidence in Mr. Brown’s ability to give good judgment,” she said. “I understand the issue of free speech. But we’re held in a position of public responsibility.” [email protected] (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BURBANK – Bob Hope Airport Commissioner Don Brown spoke in support of a friend charged in the federal Vineland Boys street gang probe, a gesture that now could cost him his job. Police and city leaders this week called for the ouster of the retired Burbank police lieutenant because his comments to a probation officer may have helped secure a reduced sentence for Scott Schaffer, a former public figure convicted of trading guns for cocaine with members of the Sun Valley-based gang. “The very thought that a retired Burbank police officer would even consider asking for leniency for a man convicted of providing guns for the Vineland Boys is appalling and showed a serious lack of judgment and common sense,” Detective Ron Cervanka told airport commissioners during a meeting this week. The City Council will consider March 6 whether to begin Brown’s dismissal proceedings.

Two more successes were chalked up for adult stem cell therapies recently. Science Daily said that sufferers from Crohn’s disease may have a new treatment option by getting injections of their own bone marrow stem cells. This “now constitutes a treatment option to cure an intestinal disease that sometimes does not successfully respond to drugs and requires highly complex surgery that does not provide a cure.” Those afflicted with type 2 diabetes also have hope, thanks to adult stem cells. Science Daily also reported that progenitor cells exist in the adult pancreas. “It is now clear that progenitor cells, with the capacity to become insulin producing cells, reside in the adult pancreas,” said researchers from UC San Diego and the Burnham Institute for Medical Research. They found that the Wnt signaling pathway is implicated in the development of type 2 diabetes. By understanding these protein-signaling pathways, they can begin to take their stem cell research toward therapeutic treatments. Not so good for embryonic stem cells. Nature News reported, “Hybrid embryos fail to live up to stem-cell hopes.” Heidi Ledford explained, “The creation of human-animal hybrid embryos – proposed as a way to generate embryonic stem cells without relying on scarce human eggs – has met with legislative hurdles and public outcry. But a paper published this week suggests that the approach has another, more fundamental problem: it may simply not work.” Researchers could not get them to grow past the 16-cell stage, and they failed to become pluripotent. The problem seems more fundamental than trying over and over again. Some ethicists may be glad for that.Follow the money. Smart investors are backing adult stem cell research at major universities and research centers, because the procedures work. Embryonic stem cell programs are sold to taxpayers with tear-jerking stories and promises of miracle cures, but to date, no cure is even in sight. Help your taxpayer friends not to be suckers when the next embryonic stem cell hucksters come to your state (e.g., Michigan, 10/15/2008).(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

After reciting a satirical poem during the Bahraini protests, Ayat Al-Qormezi was arrested. Her parents were tortured by gunmen, who told them their four sons, who had been forced face-down onto the floor, would be murdered before their eyes if they were not told where their daughter, the poet Ayat, was. Mahmood Al-Yousif, the Bahraini “blogfather” who was arrested last week, was freed shortly thereafter due in part to pressure from the U.S. government. Will the U.S. exert equal pressure to free a young lady whose fame is mostly as a poet? Will Bahrainis agitate for her release? Additional Bahraini bloggers arrested in the crackdown include Mohamed El-Miskati.If anyone has a link to, or copy of, the poem that Ayat recited in Pearl Square on the 23rd of February, please share it with all of us in the comments. American governmental transparency sites to be shuttered. It was reported that Data.gov and a number of related sites, started at the instruction of President Barak Obama to increase transparency in government, are going to be shut down due to budget constraints. Some groups are mounting challenges to those shut-downs. China arrests its best-known artist. Ai Weiwei, a globally-regarded artist and the architect of the “Bird’s Nest” stadium, was arrested this week by Chinese authorities. Ai is a blunt-talker and critic of the government.

Top athletes, including Lakers star Kobe Bryant and Los Angeles Kings player Dustin Brown, are testing the iWatch, which is already in production and will debut in October, according to reports.This comes after news that Apple was prepping an iWatch for release. Media reports have said the company has enlisted many professional athletes to test what is called “the still-unannounced device”.June 20 | Quanta to start mass production of Apple’s smartwatch in JulyJune 19 | iPhone 6 may come with barometer, air pressure sensors FILE – A shopper walks by an Apple store in Peabody, Mass., Monday, June 9, 2014. AP PhotoReports say big stars from US professional sports leagues, including Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Hockey League (NHL) and the National Basketball Association (NBA), are testing the “fitness capabilities” of the device.Bryant, reports say, was seen on Apple’s Cupertino, Calif. campus recently to meet with the company’s design chief Jony Ive.While Bryant has had a long endorsement relationship with Nike, the latter is one of Apple’s partners, said to be part of the development of the iWatch.The world’s fifth-highest-paid athlete, Bryant is tipped as the perfect brand ambassador of iWatch for western sports fans and China, where he enjoys a huge fan base.Media reports say the wearable device could act as a new tracking and diagnostics tool for professional athletes and fitness freak individuals.According to Business Insider, the device will be packed with sensors to measure health and fitness. It’ll also come in different sizes. Reuters said the iWatch will have a 2.5-inch screen, although that seems very large for something designed to be worn on the wrist. (Samsung’s Gear 2 smartwatch has a 1.6-inch screen.)advertisement”Gurman has previously reported that the iWatch will be able to detect stuff like hydration levels, sweat, steps taken, and heart rate,” Insider said.
The first leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 series ended up 0-0 but Henderson believes his team can win at Allianz Arena.Yesterday, Liverpool hosted Bayern Munich to a 0-0 draw at Merseyside in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.And even though both teams didn’t do any damage, Reds footballer Jordan Henderson believes his team can hurt the German Bundesliga team in the second leg at Allianz Arena.“It’s still alive for sure. Obviously, we’ve got games before but we’ve got to be confident still going away there,” the captain was quoted by the club’s official website.“We know how good they are as a team, we know it’ll be difficult there again, but we’ve got experience in the Champions League and I feel that we can go there and hurt them.”“It’s not the worst result in the world. We would’ve liked it to have been better, we would’ve probably liked to score one or two goals, but that’s the way it is. We’ll dust ourselves down and we’ll go again,” he added.“It’s obviously disappointing that we haven’t scored, but again we’ve kept a clean sheet and defended well, which is a positive.”“We had enough chances I feel, especially first half, to score one or two, but it’s not the worst result in the world,” he commented.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“We’ve got to go there and put on a performance. I thought our performance level was good but we just lacked that little bit in the final third [in the] second half, but first half we could’ve scored one or two.”Liverpool is currently in the second position of the English Premier League table with 65 points.The Reds have won 20 out of 26 matches in the 2018-2019 season, drawing five times and losing once.⛔ Fabinho🔥 Our captain 🌟 Bobby Firmino 👐 Alisson 📈 RecordsFive talking points from last night’s game… 👇https://t.co/XzBBCZIwCC— Liverpool FC (@LFC) February 20, 2019
