first_imgKINGSTON:Olympian and track superstar Veronica Campbell-Brown is lending her star power as an ambassador for the fourth staging of the annual Kingston City Run.The annual event has seen participation from thousands of locals, including out-of-towners from all over the island and international racers from the United Kingdom, South Africa, Trinidad, Cayman, Barbados, Canada, and the United States – from states such as New York and Florida.”We are truly overwhelmed by the all-round, positive support we have received from our participants, volunteers and sponsors,” said Christopher Jarrett, co-chair, Kingston City Run Organising Committee.”We are especially honoured for the support being given by Veronica to not only promote the event, but raise the awareness of the plight on many of our most vulnerable citizens,” he explains.The Kingston City Run focuses on supporting charitable organisations that focus on eliminating the plight of homelessness through skills training, development, offering temporary housing, meals, and general care.AT-RISKYOUTHOur charities also work with youth at risk of taking the wrong path that could one day lead to homelessness.”When asked to lend my support to this cause, I did not hesitate,” stated Veronica Campbell-Brown. “No matter how strong we are, how much we have accomplished, we must always remember to help the least of us in times of need.””I fully support the work of the Kingston City Run organisation team for taking the bold steps for such a worthy cause. Last, but by no means least, having ventured into the run/walk arena myself, I fully believe in the [Kingston City Run’s] cause of promoting health and well-being,” she added.In addition to positioning Kingston as an attractive tourist destination, KCR organisers are looking to continue to make a big impact at home.As it has in the past, the event has once again partnered with a number of local charities in a bid to help the country’s homeless population. As a result of its various fundraising initiatives, Kingston City Run will be making contributions to the Marie Atkins Night Shelter, Open Arms Drop In Centre, Food For The Poor, Missionaries of the Poor, and the Alpha Institute (formerly Alpha Boys’ Home).last_img read more

first_imgWhile nobody I spoke to in Liberia had heard of Prof. Logemoh, who we saw last week, everybody seemed to have heard of Madame Suakoko, the female chief and warrior. Paul Julien was invited to visit while passing by:‘A young man in wide Mandingo dress suddenly appeared in the doorway of my hut. His cloths, though from inland weave, were well taken care of and the man was even wearing sandals from a Sudan make, which is rare in the interior. Everything pointed in the direction of this man being a Negro from an upper class background. Half a dozen slaves followed him. To my surprise the young man knew a few English words. I let him in, gave him a stone pipe as a gift, some tobacco and a crate to sit on. He then signaled his slaves and said ‘The queen sends you this for your supper, extends her greetings and asks whether you would pay her a visit.’ He added that she is very old. The slaves came in and put the queen’s gifts in my hut. First of all there was an immense pumpkin, so heavy that a man could barely lift it. Then there was a chicken, a clay pot with rice, radish, banana, cassava, ettos (a kind of grey root that in taste reminds me of our potatoes) and boiled maize, a dish that is always part of my African menu. Another black man brought a large calabash with sour palm wine. For a while I more or less conversed with the young prince – he turned out to be a grandson to the old queen Suakoko – and we made the appointment for him to take me to the queen’s compound after sunset.’And so it happened.[…] We arrived at a big palisade wall with a small gate, blocked by a heavy door made of one piece of wood. After that another door, so low that I could hardly enter even when bending down, gave access to a courtyard where a herd of goats tried to run off in the darkness. After that we passed other obstructions and courtyards until we finally seemed to enter the space where Queen Suakoko resided, when two squatting figures rose from the darkness without producing a sound and stopped us. The prince exchanged a couple of words with them and I was allowed to enter. Behind this gate a small open square, with in the middle a roof made of palm leaves, rested on four poles in what was actually no different from a big kitchen in the interior. A fire was burning under the roof and a big piece of goat on a rattan string was roasting above it. A large amount of Negroes, all dressed in robes, except for the women who from the waist up are naked, sat close to the fire since the night was chilly and it was drizzling. Close to the fire, only dressed in loincloth the old queen Suakoko lay down on a mat. She may have been 70 years old. Upon my arrival some children started to scream, but Suakoko wasn’t moving.The old empress, who in these days in Liberia held a very powerful position, was blind. Her grandson told her I came. Suakoko uttered some sounds.‘Oelele asks what you brought for her.’ “Tell Suakoko that I brought a lot of tobacco”, and I asked Moses, who came with me but had to wait at the gate, to pass the packed tobacco. An approving mumbling went through the entourage around the fire. Suakoko touched the tobacco, a much desired and expensive commodity in the interior, deemed too expensive to smoke by many who powder it and eat it in small amounts. The tobacco was instantly divided in two parts. Suakoko put one part underneath her pillow. The other part was divided further among the entourage, which again resulted in approving mumbling.‘Suakoko very old’ said her grandson and showed me the wrinkled skin of his grandmother. ‘Suakoko blind’. “I can tell”, I answered. ‘Oelele lies next to the fire all day and sleeps there too’. That message was the intro to a question because suddenly the prince said ‘Oelele asks whether you brought Jenever (Dutch gin)’. I saw that the queen was listening attentively and was very disappointed to hear that I was not carrying gin. I could have added that I knew that a couple of crates of gin would have literally solved all of the problems I could haven encountered in the heart of Africa, but that I didn’t feel the urge to advertise this highlight of Dutch culture, that is an utter delight under the population of the dark continent. My visit didn’t last long. I was preparing to leave. ‘When you return please do not forget to bring plenty gin for Oelele’, asked the prince to very modestly add to that ‘plenty money for me’. “I hope to remember”. And thus I returned to my hut, easing all the court’s babies that found shelter behind their mother’s back all the while.’This whole story makes me ask questions about the nature of history and the importance of facts versus story. The ‘Queen’ Suakoko that Julien meets is not the hero that is remembered. The recently opened Mme Suakoko Memorial Centre has a plate next to its door. On it the year of death is 1927 but Paul Julien visited her in August 1932 during his first and only time in Liberia. Does that make the plate worthless? Should we distrust the story?Next week another story, related to the Leopard Society, will bring us related issues when thinking about history as we can and cannot know it.About Paul Juliens:Paul Julien (1901-2001) was an anthropologist from the Netherlands who traveled through Liberia in 1932. Andrea Stultiens (1974) is a photographer and researcher from the Netherlands. As part of her PhD-research she tries to connect the past that was documented by Paul Julien to the past as remembered in Liberia and the way it is connected to the present. Julien’s photographs are part of the collection of the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam.From July 19th till August 19th 2014 Julien’s photographs and the film he made will be on display at the National Museum. Leading up to this some of the stories are shared in History and Us columns.

first_img0Shares0000Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino scored 27 goals for Liverpool in the 2017-18 season © AFP/File / Lindsey PARNABYLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Aug 31 – Roberto Firmino will seek to end a rare goal drought when Liverpool take on Leicester although his manager Jurgen Klopp has no concerns about a drop-off in productivity.The Brazil international has formed one of the most feared forward lines in European football over the past 12 months with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. And the 26-year-old, signed for £29 million ($38 million) from Hoffenheim three years ago, has continued his excellent form in Liverpool’s 100 percent start to the campaign — three victories and three clean sheets in as many games.Yet despite scoring 27 times for last season, Firmino is still looking for his first goal of the new campaign even though Liverpool are the early Premier League pacesetters.The forward has not scored in eight games for Klopp’s side and in the Premier League has one goal in his past 10 appearances, a run that dates back to March.But Firmino’s selfless running has been singled out as one of the reasons Salah looks capable of continuing the prodigious production of last season, when he scored 44 times for Klopp in all competitions.The Liverpool boss says there is no sense of a World Cup hangover for Firmino, whose Brazil side exited the tournament at the quarter-final stage.“He had two weeks pre-season, which is quite short for a player who needs his physical fitness as much as Roberto does but I’m completely happy,” said Klopp.“After two weeks’ preparation and a Brazilian holiday he is much sharper and fitter than I would have expected. It is exactly how it should be in this moment and he can improve, like we all can improve.”Along with his mobility, Firmino’s eye for a killer pass has not been dulled by his exertions in Russia.His superbly timed pass against Brighton last week played in Salah, who scored the game’s only goal as Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier League table for the first time in nearly two years.Klopp has stressed that Liverpool need to improve despite the 1-0 win, and the German must decide whether to name an unchanged starting line-up for the fourth consecutive game at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.Central defender Dejan Lovren, a World Cup finalist, is pushing for a return, although the impressive form of youngster Joe Gomez may mean that the Croatian faces another afternoon on the bench at Leicester.With Liverpool’s front three selecting themselves, Klopp has to decide on his midfield line-up — England’s Jordan Henderson has been unable to secure a starting place so far.Liverpool’s defence, boosted by the arrival of Brazilian keeper Alisson, has yet to concede and has the added advantage of not having to face Jamie Vardy, who announced his retirement from the England national team this week, due to suspension.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgBy Dana Bartholomew STAFF WRITER Breathe deeper – but not too deeply: The nation’s most smog-choked city is poised for its cleanest year on record. Los Angeles, the smoggiest city in the nation for four years running, recorded 78 unhealthy ozone days through Monday, its fewest for a year since 1976. The next year, the L.A. air basin suffered 88 unhealthful ozone days; then it had 84 days in 2005 and 86 during last year’s record-hot summer. Regulators attribute this year’s low to an unseasonably cool summer, with an eight-hour ozone low of 0.137 ppm, the lowest concentration on record. “The air-quality improvement is due to forging ahead on all fronts to reduce pollution,” AQMD spokesman Sam Atwood said. Southern California has enacted the strictest air-quality requirements in the nation, covering most of Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside counties. But the region is still the king of smog, ahead of the San Joaquin Valley, with 67 unhealthful ozone days, and Houston with 24. The smog season begins May 1 and ends Oct. 31. “We can’t say it enough: We’re all responsible for that air we breathe in L.A.,” said Julia Robinson Shimizu, spokeswoman for Breathe California of Los Angeles County. That means each resident can use cleaner cars, drive less, take the train or bus, walk, burn less energy, and support legislation to help clean the air, she said. dana.bartholomew@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! With clean air expected through the end of smog season, Oct. 31, the Los Angeles region likely will set a healthy-air record, regulators said Tuesday. “We are headed in the right direction toward our goal of clean air,” said William A. Burke, governing board chairman for the South Coast Air Quality Management District. “The challenge ahead will be to maintain and increase our momentum, especially in cleaning up construction equipment, trucks, trains, ships and the ports.” In 1976, Angelenos suffered through more than 200 unhealthy ozone days lasting at least eight hours at an average of 0.08 parts per million, the federal standard. Since then, clean-air laws have cut those numbers more than in half. The last Stage III smog alert was in 1974, when ozone hit 0.51 parts per million. The last Stage I alert was in 2003. last_img read more

first_img Officials from Sonnenblick-Del Rio Development Inc., in which the two men are partners, did not return phone calls for comment. In a phone interview, West denied that he had any inappropriate dealings with Sonnenblick-Del Rio, including providing them with inside information or allowing them to pay for his vacations to Jamaica, Europe and Breckenridge, Colo. Sonnenblick-Del Rio owns three of the four buildings that are the subject of McCauley’s investigation. The fourth is owned by Chase Glendale Services LLC, whose representatives did not return calls. The county spends about $14.4 million in annual lease payments on those four buildings and another office building in Exposition Park. The county owns about 5,100 buildings many of which are for storage and leases 358 additional facilities. “The way we handled these buildings was not specifically provided for in federal regulations,’ Chief Administrative Officer David Janssen said. “We’ve had the same kind of situation in health care where we try to figure out the most aggressive ways to draw down federal dollars for health care.’ But in a March 2003 letter to McCauley, David Low, Program Support Division director for the Department of Health and Human Services, questioned the lease-back deal on a Sonnenblick-Del Rio building in West Los Angeles. He noted that the parties established a private, nonprofit corporation and that the city of Los Angeles issued a tax-exempt bond to finance construction. As part of the deal, the city expects to receive title to the building at the end of the 30- year lease. At the same time, the county entered into a 30- year operating lease with the city for the facility. “Because of recent corporate financial scandals, these types of leases have been under fire by users of financial statements and regulators,’ Low wrote. “We suspect that the county entered into this lease because of its belief that it would receive greater reimbursement under federal and state programs from an operating lease than from a capital lease.’ At the end of the 30-year lease, the county will not own the facility and will have to extend the lease or purchase the building. If the county had sought a capital lease, it would own the building valued at up to $189 million once the lease was complete. Instead, the county now will have to pay $29 million to purchase the facility. The criminal investigation of West follows the prosecution of the Chief Administrative Office’s Real Estate Division lease acquisitions manager, Cheryl Fuerth, 57, of Long Beach. Court records show Fuerth had married Claus Marx, the former director of the CAO Real Estate Division, in 1998 and that the two filed for a confidential marriage license. In her statements of economic interest, Fuerth failed to disclose three properties she and Marx own in Hermosa Beach, Long Beach and Whittier. Originally charged with seven felony counts of perjury and three misdemeanor counts of failing to disclose economic interests, Fuerth pleaded no contest Sept. 15 to one misdemeanor count and will be sentenced Dec. 13.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Government watchdogs said the investigations raise serious questions about contracting practices at the Hall of Administration. “If these allegations are proven, then all contracts and all permits should be re-examined to determine whether the developers have been providing financial inducements to county employees,’ said Bob Stern, president of the Center for Governmental Studies in Los Angeles, a nonpartisan, nonprofit group that looks at campaign financing and ethics. McCauley said he expects to finish his investigation soon, adding that his office also is calculating whether the county might have to reimburse the state and federal governments, and for how much. “We are working to determine if claiming these costs from the state and federal governments was appropriate,’ McCauley said. The district attorney’s probe led to West, also known as Charles Mazouch, 55, of South Pasadena, being put on paid leave Sept. 14, the day before investigators served search warrants seeking financial records and vacation photos of West and his wife. Warrants seeking similar documents and photos also were served on developers Robert Sonnenblick and Nelson Del Rio and their wives. The Los Angeles County auditor is investigating lucrative lease-back deals approved by the county supervisors and handled by the county’s real estate unit for potential misuse of state and federal funds, officials say. The probe comes on top of a district attorney’s inquiry of potential improper activity by the head of the agency, officials say. The latest investigation by Auditor-Controller Tyler McCauley was requested by the federal government in 2003. Federal officials had raised concerns about leases for welfare offices and the possible waste of federal dollars intended to help mostly poor people. Under the lease-back deals, the state and federal governments provide a higher rate of reimbursement to counties that lease space rather than own it outright. The District Attorney’s Office said it is investigating the Chief Administrative Office’s Real Estate Division to determine whether its chief, Chuck West, provided inside information to a prominent Westside development company that built three of the office buildings, then leased them back to the county. last_img read more
