Seven-year-old G. Monnie Potter, who is suffering from a serious eye defect, may lose his sight or die unless his father’s plea for assistance receives urgent attention from philanthropists.Mr. Bobby Potter said his son is current enduring, “pain which my son cannot bear anymore and I’m appealing for urgent help for him.”“My son is paralyzed and partially blind; his head and legs are swollen and his mouth and Tongue are twisted,” he said almost in tears.Little G. Potter and his parents are residents of Buchanan City, Grand Bassa County but he is currently admitted at the Tappita Hospital for a CT Scan Test, costing the family U$100, according to Mr. Potter.His mother Mamie Potter, also in tears, told the Daily Observer Monday evening that the family visited several medical centers but her son’s condition has not changed for the better.“We’ve spent all the money we have and we now have no money to settle his future medical bills,” she said. “My husband is not working; we are begging everybody in the name of God to come to our aid.”“I love my son so much and I don’t want his eyes to get damaged or for him to die from this sickness,” she sobbed.The Daily Observer learned that due to the disturbing condition, Little Potter’s health has rapidly declined and doctors have advised that the family take the child out of Liberia to seek advanced medical treatment.The possibility of his recovery, according to the boy’s father, now centers heavily on the availability of money to pay his medical bill. When little Potter’s situation started in 2013, the family was allegedly told that it was malaria. “I took him to CEM Clinic in Buchanan and the nurses said it was malaria and they gave him treatment,” Mrs. Porter said, adding: “but few days later, his left eye started swollen.” She said the boy was taken back to the clinic where the nurses said his situation was now the result of an infection in the blood, a report, which was also confirmed by doctors at the St. Peter’s Catholic Hospital in Buchanan.He was treated for his condition but there was no improvement, according to the mother, and a recommendation was made for an advanced treatment abroad. “The doctor at the government hospital said we should take the boy to the JFK in Monrovia for better treatment,” the sick child’s mom said.Little Potter was born on January 28, 2007 in Gaye Town Old Road, Monrovia. He was a very healthy, smart and handsome kid, the mother said. He attended the Children Future Day Care School in Buchanan. For help of any kind, you can contact Mr. H.

Two men are presently in Police custody for questioning in connection with the murder of 23-year-old Elton Leonard at Karasabai, Region Nine. A third man, who is believed to be the prime suspect, remains on the run.F Division (Interior locations) Commander Kevin AdonisThis was confirmed by Commander of “F” Division, Kevin Adonis, who related that the two men who were arrested were actually handed over to the Police by the village toshao.Adonis said the three suspects, who hail from Karasabai, had gone into hiding moments after Leonard was knifed to death.However, after a few days had elapsed, the two men now in custody returned to their village, but the toshao quickly notified the Police in the area, and the men were arrested.From information received, the Commander believes that the prime suspect is trying to flee the country into neighbouring Brazil. The Police, he added have been on high alert.On Friday, last, Leonard was stabbed to death by his friends after an argument had broken out among them while they were out at a bar consuming alcohol.It was reported that Leonard had left his home while under the influence of alcohol, and, some five hours later, had been engaged in a heated row with the three men.It was revealed that during the argument, Leonard was stabbed to his left side chest.He reportedly collapsed and died almost immediately. The three men then made good their escape as the man lay on the ground in a pool of blood.
Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj GGMC sets strict requirements for lottery of 100 mining blocks
– participants must be residents of Mahdia; cannot own other mining blocksThe Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) will be putting up some 100 mining blocks for a lottery in Mahdia, with stringent requirements that applicants must be residents of Mahdia and must not be holders of any other mining properties.Participants at a previous Guyana Geology and Mines lotteryAccording to the notice announcing the move, the lottery will be hosted on December 11, 2019, and will give persons a chance to vie for 100 prospecting permits. Registration involves a non-refundable fee of $5000.Registration has to be done on Tuesday, December 10, 2019, at the GGMC’s office on Brickdam, between 08:00h to 10:00h. The lottery itself will be held from 11:00h and will be open only to Guyanese.“Interested persons may consult the relevant maps which are on display at the GGMC head office and at the Mahdia mining station for information on the blocks available for allocation. Lottery maps are also available at a cost of $3000 per sheet,” the notice had specified.“Participants shall not be the holders of any mining properties. Only one application is permissible from an individual or entity. Allottees will be required to file an application for the awarded block by February 14, 2020. Applications not filed will result in the award being considered abandoned,” they said, adding that participants found to be non-residents of Mahdia will be disqualified.The Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) has opened some 319 blocks of land within the six mining districts and small-scale miners were allowed to partake in a lottery process to obtain a plot.Through the Natural Resources Ministry with assistance from the Closed Area Committee (CAC), stakeholders were tasked with selecting a district of their preference and choosing a random number which would determine the plot of land to be given.After submitting relevant information, the Commission would then proceed towards allocating the said land. With no guarantee that their plot would prove wealthy in natural resources, many entered the lottery and selected within the six districts – Mazaruni, Berbice, Potaro, Cuyuni, North West and the Rupununi.Speaking at the activity, Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman had stated that this initiative surfaced after complaints from miners about the absence of lands to carry out mining activities. As such, he had expressed his belief that the lottery would remedy the issue significantly.In the lottery, recipients must submit proof of identity through a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) certificate, address and other relevant documents by a given date or forfeit their opportunity to gain access to the lands.

SANTA CLARA – Now that the 49ers have tossed back a six-pack of wins, let’s see what the fans are thirsting for in this Week 8 mailbag via my Instagram and Twitter taps:Can the defense play better than they already have? (@iLikeGSW)Let’s let Nick Bosa, their early-season MVP, answer: “Earlier in games, we can play better. It takes us a minute to settle down. If we just stick to what we do right off the bat … That’s part of the game, making adjustments. Teams know they have to run the ball …
Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj Soccer well-positioned for 2009
On the national football front, there’s also plenty to be optimistic about. After a string of indifferent results (and the loss of yet another national coach), Joel Santana and his new-look Bafana squad are showing signs of real promise. They were desperately unlucky to lose to Nigeria in their final qualifying match for the African Cup of Nations. Since then, they have secured four friendly victories against Cameroon, Ghana, Equatorial Guinea and Malawi. That’s good for the local game in the build-up to next year’s Confederations Cup and the 2010 World Cup. Certainly, the standard of the Premier Soccer League is a good indicator of how the game is developing with both these tournaments now looming large. Time and again, Fifa has reminded us that the performance of the local side is pivotal to the success of a World Cup, as demonstrated by France (winners in 1998), South Korea (co-hosts and semi-finalists in 2002) and unfancied Germany, who also made it to the semi-finals two years ago. If Bafana are in the process of starting a late charge for 2010, much will depend on the state of the domestic game and the national squad’s performance at the Confederations Cup; but there are signs that things are pointing in the right direction. It’s early days, of course, Santana but believes his squad will have what it takes to make a serious challenge at next year’s “Festival of Champions”. By defeating Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs (2-1) and Orlando Pirates (1-0) respectively in their latest league encounters, the Cape-based sides are continuing to level the playing fields and demonstrate that tradition and mass appeal can be overcome. 12 December 2008 Santos and Ajax Cape Town have once more demonstrated the ongoing power shift in South African club football.

Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj Cape Town hosts world’s biggest maths Olympiad yet
The 565 teens from 109 nations taking part in the 55th International Mathematics Olympaid at the University of Cape Town this month represent 90% of the world’s population. (Image: IMO 2014)• Marisa LouwHead of communicationIMO 2014+27 72 987 email@example.comLorraine KearneySpectacular drumming from Limited Edition Drumming Corp reverberated across the freezing University of Cape Town campus, high above the city, last night. They announced South Africa in fine style, the host team of the 55th International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), being held in Africa for the first time.It is also making another record: the most countries ever are participating – 565 teens from 109 nations are today sitting to write the first paper of three questions in 4.5 hours. It is also the first time Burkina Faso, Gambia, Ghana and Tanzania have sent teams to the event, while Botswana, Madagascar and Myanmar are observers. They will send teams next year to the 56th IMO, taking place in Chiang Mai, Thailand.The first IMO was held in Romania in 1959 with seven countries participating; since then it has grown in size and stature. The IMO is the oldest, biggest and most prestigious of all the international science Olympiads. It is a problem-solving contest for high school students, held in a different country every July. Participants write two problem papers, each 4.5 hours long and containing just three problems, on successive days. Gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded to the top half of the contestants in the ratio 1:2:3.The 109 nations at this year’s IMP represent 90% of the world’s population. South Africa, like many countries, has a team of six – five of whom come from Western Cape. Although the breakdown in this Olympiad is not available, there were few girls in the Jamieson Hall for the opening ceremony. In 2013, it was held in Colombia, and 97 countries participated. There were 527 participants, of whom 475 were male and only 52 female.Horsing around with a rhino: IMO contestants with Ukubala, the official mascot of the South African Mathematics Foundation, at Cape Town International Airport. (Image: IMO 2014)Maths in AfricaThe teams for IMO2014 were welcomed to Cape Town by Dr Max Price, UCT’s vice-chancellor. He began with a history lesson, saying perceptions of Africa did not naturally associate the continent with science, technology and leadership in maths. “I would like to suggest these perceptions are wrong and are ignorant of history. Africa is the cradle of humanity,” he said. The first mathematical calculations were done by the Egyptians in building their pyramids.Maths reached its full maturity in Africa under Euclid, in Alexandra, more than 2 000 years ago, he pointed out. “In medieval times, Timbuktu, in Mali, was the centre of learning in the world. The first university was founded here in the 12th century – before the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Its archives show that maths dates back 800 years in Timbuktu.”Yet Africa’s links to maths went back even further, he stressed, referring to the first accepted occurrence of a calendar bone, found in the Lebombo Mountains on South Africa’s north-eastern border. It has been dated as 35 000 years old. A 100 000-year-old ochre tablet from the Blombos Cave in the southern Cape has been accepted as the first abstract geometric design.“The first IMO in Africa is an idea whose time has come,” Price said. He encouraged the participants to consider returning to UCT to continue their studies – they are all still in high school – stressing the beauty of the campus, its focus on diversity and its academic rigour.Debbie Schäfer, Western Cape minister of education, said maths as a school subject was crucial to the development of any country. “It is the basis of science, technology and engineering and is needed for certain degrees and careers.” Improving maths results was a focus of the provincial government, she said, lamenting that more high school students chose the easier option of maths literacy over mathematics. “This has consequences for the country and the economy.”The South African team taking part in this year’s Maths Olympiad. (Image: IMO 2014)Making maths fun and coolTeachers were needed who inspired students to learn maths, and who made it easier. “You are making maths cool and fun,” she told the participants, urging them to consider becoming teachers.Following the formalities came the festivities, with a performance by Cape Town’s Zip Zap Circus School, before South African team member Sanjiv Ranchod took the oath on behalf of the participants, and IMO2014 was declared officially open.Prof John Webb, director of the IMO2014 and a UCT lecturer, says: “Holding a high-profile event such as the IMO in South Africa will bring mathematics into the public eye and highlight the importance of mathematics education in South Africa’s economic and technological development.”The main sponsors are the Department of Basic Education, Google, SABC Education, South African National Roads Agency Limited and Sasol. It is presented by the South African Mathematics Foundation.Members of the Morocco team. (Image: IMO 2014)The Department of Basic Education pledged R6-million ($560 000) to the event. “We are extremely excited about the support from our government for this prestigious event. It shows real commitment from government to address the important issue of mathematics in the country” says Prof Johann Engelbrecht, the foundation’s executive director.“While there is widespread concern about the high failure rate and generally low marks of most of those who passed, not enough attention has been paid to those who passed with high marks. Society needs more quality maths passes. We need architects, accountants, computer scientists, engineers, statisticians and teachers with a strong mathematical background, including numerical, spatial and logical skills. We need to offer pupils opportunities to expand their mathematical horizons and to urge them on to high achievement.”One answer lies outside the formal school curriculum. “Over the years, tens of thousands of high school students have taken part in events such as the South African Mathematics Olympiad and the best of the best have gone on to represent South Africa at the Pan African and International Mathematics Olympiads. Their subsequent careers – Rhodes scholarships, PhDs in maths and computer science, top careers in IT or industry or finance – demonstrate the value of searching for highly talented young mathematicians and giving them a real chance of showing what they can achieve in competition with the best in the world.”Just as the Olympic Games and world cups in cricket, rugby and football promote sport, hosting the IMO in South Africa will focus attention on the importance of mathematical excellence, he adds.Contestants from Belarus.

Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj China Polices Online Identity, Creates Marketing Gold Mine
Last week’s news that China is planning to restrict the use of true anonymity for its Internet denizens sent collective shudders throughout the human rights community – and may have piqued the interest of Western corporations seeing a huge sales and marketing opportunity.No one with any sort of soul could have been happy about the news on Friday that the Chinese government would be requiring Internet users to provide their real names to Internet service providers, apparently the latest in another round of crack-downs to push down pesky opinions against a government that continues to crack down on citizens.Open Is HardChina is something that I continue to watch with interest. Having watched the zenith and the fall of the old Soviet Union, I have the layman’s sense that China is holding on hard because they know full well what happens when restrictions are eased. The Soviet experiment in glasnost made that abundantly clear.Thirty years after the glasnost policies helped widen the cracks in the Soviet political foundation, China is facing a similar problem. It wants to lock down control of its citizens, but it desperately wants to be a player on the global stage. The problem is, the economy of the world is increasingly dependent on technology and the Internet, something that reeks of openness and transparency. There are differences, of course: the Soviet Union tried glasnost from within, and China is trying to deal with openness from without, but the end result may be the same.Most China pundits also see this particular round of regulations as a short-term solution to the growing problem of exposed scandals within their government; scandals getting back to the Chinese public at-large through the Internet, who have in turn been commenting on the events with increased vigor. It is expected that requiring real names to be collected by Chinese ISPs, regardless of whether a pseudonym is used online, will put the kibosh on such commentary and more.Who Else Could BenefitWhile we get to watch China pull yet-another smack down on freedom of expression, the cynical side of me also has to wonder is outside corporations might not see these newly strengthened policies as an opportunity. When I first read the news coming across the wire last week, my very first thought was that China’s announcement sounded just like Google Plus’ identity policies.I’m not sure Google would appreciate their identity policy being equated with China’s, but if you sign up for Google Plus or other Google services, somewhere along the line you’re going to have to tell them your true identity – or take great lengths to fake Google out. We can argue the merits of this, but for now if you want to swim in Google’s pool, this is the price of admission. We’re told it’s to keep things civil, but knowing the Internet habits of one Brian Proffitt and what he might like to buy could be worth a lot of money, too.Looking at the policies for Google, Facebook and other social platforms where identity is the real currency to be sold to advertisers and marketers, how could any such vendor be able to resist an entire nation of identified Internet users? The opportunities would be huge.To its apparent credit, the Chinese government seems to have already anticipated this issue. When the new rules were announced, strong admonishments were issued for any Internet service provider that might care to start selling this valuable information.Given its value, one wonders how long this professed practice of protecting Chinese identities will last. It should not surprise anyone to see new policies in the future where China will partner with “friendly” multinationals to allow the sale and trade of identity information for marketing and advertising. It’ll either be the Chinese government alone, or a revenue-share plan with the private ISPs to make the deal work for both sides, but it’s bound to happen. Corporations have no souls, after all.History has shown that the Chinese government is no less interested in generating revenue than any other political entity, and if such revenue generation were to come at the expense of monetizing its citizens’ identities, well, what are they going to do? Complain?Image courtesy of Shutterstock.

Category: kuzkuihrvxwjoynj ‘Rock snot’ study triggers the interview request from hell
Max Bothwell is an expert on the nuisance algae didymo, also known as rock snot. And when he first published an article online about the origins of the algae this past May, a reporter with the Canadian Press, a news agency, asked to interview him. But Bothwell works for the government agency Environment Canada, and the interview request got bogged down in bureaucracy. Really bogged down. In all, 16 public affairs people in various agencies wrote a total of 110 pages of e-mails, according to records acquired through a freedom of information request by the enterprising and presumably fairly frustrated reporter. The minders were busy dealing with “agreed answers” that Bothwell would be allowed to give and an “approved interview script.” But they didn’t get the interview approved by deadline.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)One of the e-mails suggests why the interview was considered politically sensitive.
