Pres. Weah Turns Shoniyin over to LACC

first_imgMr. Shoniyin: “I resigned based on professional and personal consideration.”Barely 24-hour B. Elias Shoniyin, Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister resigned his post, President George Weah has “directed him to authorities of the Liberia Anti Corruption Commission (LACC) in adherence to official exit process, consistent with best practice and the laws of the land.”Although the President has accepted his resignation, and has thanked him for his 13-year “dedicated and professional service to the Liberian government,” sources informed the Daily Observer that Mr. Shoniyin’s resignation was primarily a result of “non-cooperation and disrespect to his office as deputy minister.”Shoniyin tendered in his letter of resignation on Monday, May 6, 2019, citing “professional and personal consideration” as reasons for his resigning his post, but said he remains with the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development.Sources close to the Foreign Ministry confirmed the resignation of Mr. Shoniyin, following the submission of his letter to the office of President weah for “professional and personal consideration.” He has served at the ministry for 13-years. The letter read:“Dear Mr. President,It is with regret that I tender my resignation as Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Liberia effective May 6, 2019, after 13 years of dedicated service to the Liberian government spanning two successive administrations. My resignation is motivated solely by personal and professional consideration.Meanwhile, I take this opportunity to thank your Excellency for the opportunity to serve on your team since your historic inauguration on January 22, 2018, and for your personal brotherly support during the period of my service in your administration.”According to Shoniyin, his time spent working as a member of President Weah’s administration was indeed a wonderful experience and an opportunity to continue making a meaningful contribution to the country.“You can have my assurances that I depart the Foreign Ministry, but not the administration as I remain committed to the Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development, and will be available whenever I am called upon,” Mr. Shoniyin said in his letter.Shoniyin, one of the Liberia’s astute diplomats, was appointed in 2006 as an assistant foreign minister; later he served as deputy minister for international cooperation and rose to the position of deputy minister of foreign affairs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Condors face big challenge

first_imgFor California High School’s football program, this is not a good combination. Schurr High School’s football program has three linemen weighing more than 300 pounds. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “We know (Schurr) has some huge guys up front, and we know (its game plan) will be to come out and try to make it a smash-mouth game,” Ancich said, referring to the prospect of physical play and not implying anything outside the rules. “We expect them to be very strong, but we’ve got some strong kids, too. Missing those four guys could cause some headaches for us.” The four players who are either out or at least doubtful for the game are Adam Garcia, a 5-foot-11, 265-pound offensive tackle (ankle); Sergio Dias, a 6-3, 275-pound nose guard (elbow); Robert Arriola, a 6-3 180-pound tight end (concussion); and Brian Minero, a 5-10, 200-pound linebacker (knee). California is 1-2 after suffering a disappointing 21-7 loss to Long Beach Jordan last week. “Jordan was big, too, and had good speed,” Ancich said. “But I was very happy with the way our kids played. They weren’t intimidated at all. Losing never feels good, but I think we learned some things about ourselves.” Ancich says the Condors’ record may be misleading. California is missing at least four players whom coach Dusan Ancich describes as “some of our more physical players.” The teams play a nonleague game tonight at Schurr. center_img “We’ve played some very good teams,” he said, referring in addition to Jordan a 28-14 loss to Rowland and a 42-7 win over El Monte. The three combined have a 7-2 record. “Our problem has been (making) mistakes at inopportune times,” Ancich added. “The good thing is that they are correctable mistakes.” Schurr has been outscored 88-54, but turned in an impressive performance in a 30-26 loss to a good Hacienda Heights Wilson team last week. The Spartans have shown improvement in each of their games, starting with a 30-14 loss to Burbank Burroughs and followed by a 28-14 loss to Downey, which is ranked No. 8 in CIF-Southern Section Division III. — Roger Murray can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3046, or by e-mail at roger.murray@sgvn.com. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

PayPal’s Micropayment Solution Opens to the Public

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Finance#Microcontent#New Media#news#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…center_img Online payment company PayPal has opened up its micropayment solution to “game developers, media publishers, or anyone interested in selling digital content on a global scale.” The solution was first announced last October when the company said that the upcoming feature would offer “a competitive fee structure for micropayments, with pricing at 5 percent plus 5 cents for purchases under $12.”Today, PayPal’s two-click micropayment solution has gone public and it has the potential to change how publishers and other online merchants interact with their customers.The major hurdle for micropayments is getting the consumer through the process with as little friction as possible. The more a consumer has to do to make a payment, the less likely they are to do so. This is PayPal’s answer to that problem.When consumers pay for online content, PayPal for digital goods allows them to pay in as little as two clicks without ever leaving a publisher’s game, news, music, video or media site. It’s the online equivalent to dropping a quarter in the slot to buy a gumball.Based on PayPal’s existing security, the service offers a faster, safer and more cost-effective way to send and receive micropayments. PayPal for digital goods still has competitive fees for micropayments pricing of 5 percent plus 5 cents for purchases under $12. This is actually lower than fees typically charged by payment processors in the DG industry. As an extra perk, publishers and merchants are paid automatically and given immediate access to their funds, every time a customer purchases digital goods.So, how could this change things? The digital publishing space is on a never ending search for a way to get readers to pay for content on an a la carte basis. According to PayPal, online magazine Autosport.com saw a 75% increase in new customers signing up with the beta version of the micropayment system. The next step, of course, is to do what’s shown in the screen shot above – get users to pay for things 25 cents at a time. mike melanson 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

In Mathura, Narendra Modi launches programme to vaccinate 500 million livestock

first_imgAsking people to shun single use plastic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the wanton use of plastic posed a hazard to the environment and had led to livestock and fish being killed. Mr. Modi was addressing a gathering in Mathura after joining women in segregating plastic from waste at a ‘Swachhta Hi Seva’ programme. The Prime Minister sat on the floor with women who pick plastic from garbage and helped them sift through the waste. Mr. Modi, who is on a day’s visit to this Uttar Pradesh town, also launched the National Animal Disease Control Programme (NADCP) for eradicating foot and mouth disease (FMD) and brucellosis in livestock. With 100 per cent funding from the Central government till 2024, the ₹12,652 crore NADCP programme aims at vaccinating over 500 million livestock, including cattle, sheep, goats and pigs, against FMD. The programme has targeted vaccinating 36 million female bovine calves annually in its fight against brucellosis disease, a bacterial infection transmitted from animals to humans. The programme has two components — controlling the diseases by 2025 and eradication by 2030. During his visit, Mr. Modi interacted with farmers and also launched the National Artificial Insemination Programme. As part of the “Swachhta Hi Seva” programme, the prime minister met 25 garbage workers. The women wore masks and a glove and responded to Modi’s questions on garbage generated from households and the amount of plastic in them. The women were honoured for their work. Addressing the COP (Conference of Parties) to United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) at Greater Noida two days ago, the prime minister spoke of India’s resolve to end single use plastic and urged other nations to embrace the cause as well. “My government has announced that India would put an end to single use plastics in the coming years. We are committed to the development of environment-friendly substitutes and also an efficient plastic collection and disposal method,” Mr. Modi said. The government has pledged to eliminate single use plastic by 2022. As part of the effort, the government is likely to put out descriptors of what constitutes single use plastic.last_img read more
