Liberian Agent Calls on Government to Invest in Sports

first_imgJlopleh, Co-Founder and President of the MED Sports ManagementA Liberian agent based in the United States, Deo Shamo Jlopleh has called on the government to invest in sports, especially football, if the country ought to improve in that sector.Jlopleh made the call Wednesday, October 24, in an interview in Monrovia. He said there is a need for football to improve after years in which the country has been regarded as an ‘underdog in Africa at both club and national team levels.’“We have witnessed with great dismay, the Lone Star, our nation’s pride, losing its place in world of football. Growing up in a nation where every child plays football and seeing the competitiveness of the game and the raw competing talents at the level of our communities, schools and everywhere, it beats my imagination why we are ranked 155th in FIFA ranking today, when just 2001 we were the 66th best football country in the world,” he said.According to former footballer turned agent, after 12 years of peace, the war should not be an excuse for the backwardness of the game in the country.“Liberia has the raw and natural talents to lead African football and compete at the world level, so I refuse to believe that such talents have been depleted. I believe we have failed as a country to identify football as a commodity that gives us competitive advantage by investing in both human and material to have us compete with other nations,” he said.He added, “Football has huge economic potential, and those who invest massively in it are rewarded with great economic benefits. The demand for football has caused capital inflow into the game and investors with more purchasing power are buying the best and wealthy teams and these teams are paying for the best players. The concept of capitalism plays a major role in the game today, and until Liberia takes a good look at the game, we will continue to fall below our records of yesterday.”Jlopleh, also a co-founder and president of the MED Sports Management, and the MED Soccer Foundation in Liberia, wants the Government and the Liberia Football Association to join other countries in the new trend to invest in the game, creating means for potential players to be given opportunity to showcase their skills at international competitions.“Our national league is still substandard. We need to draw up a more competitive league that will ensure our teams play more games coupled with a branding and marketing strategy that markets our plan, outlining our advantages,” he said.Dubbed “Shamo,” Jlopleh had a short football career playing for third division side Invader FC and Roza FC in Liberia and later Blessing FC and Buduburam FC in Ghana, where he sustained a knee injury that ended his young playing career.He has over the years promoted young players around the world, securing deals for them in the Asian league such as Myanmar Premier League, Indian Super League, Malaysian Super League and Thailand League.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Great Christmas is on the cards for Dunlewey post office!

first_imgThe local community in Dunlewey are breaking out the mulled wine after An Post confirmed the local post office is to remain open.There have been fears that the post office in the scenic village in the shadow of Errigal was to close.A recent public meeting heard how locals would fight tooth and nail to retain the postal services in the village. Now, it was revealed that the company plans to roll out a dedicated An Post ‘Post Point Plus’ service in the village.It follows a Public Consultation initiated to examine the future of postal services in Dunlewey.Deputy Pearse Doherty praised the work of the local community throughout the consultation process and has credited their efforts for An Post’s decision to retain postal services.He said “Today’s announcement from An Post that the company has decided to retain postal services in Dunlewey following public consultation is to be very much welcomed. “The company has confirmed that it will now commit to the introduction of a dedicated ‘Post Point Plus’ facility which will be transferred to an existing business in the village and which allows for the continuation of the majority of services presently available to customers in the area, with the exclusion of financial services.“I understand that customers will continue to have access to vital postal services as well as a wide range of products and services offered by An Post and its partners including parcel collection, Bill Payments, TV Licence renewal, Pre-Pay and Mobile Top-Up purchases, Stamps and other services supported by the An Post retail network.“Also, customers shall continue to be able to collect their pension payments through this service once it is established – this is obviously terrific news to all those living in Dunlewey who are in receipt of the payment and who have ordinarily received it through the post office in the village.“Clearly this is a fantastic result for the residents of Dunlewey who I must commend for their campaign and outstanding efforts to retain postal services in the village.”“Last month, as part of the public consultation process into postal services in Dunlewey, I asked the company to come along to Dunlewey to meet with a local derogation and this meeting was very important as it allowed the local community to press upon An Post the importance of having a local branch in the village. This meeting followed on from the hugely successful meeting called by Cllr John Sheamais Ó Fearraigh where local people came together to devise a joined up approach and plan for how best to respond as part of the consultation process.Also as part of this process, some 59 individual submissions were received by the company concerning the service.Deputy Doherty “Of course, I must pay tribute to the Post Mistress in Dunlewey who will shortly be stepping down after having given more than two decades of service to the community – today’s decision will come as a relief too for her and all those who have availed of services at the Post office down through the years.“Today’s result is a testament to the hard work and determination displayed by the entire community and I must take this opportunity to commend local residents for this fantastic achievement which will see the village retain postal services for the future benefit of the region.” Great Christmas is on the cards for Dunlewey post office! was last modified: December 21st, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:An PostcardsCHristmasdonegalDunlewey post oficeretainedlast_img read more

Your Cat and Evolution

first_imgThis week’s just-so story is, “How the kitty got its stripes.”  All the news are on it; they just don’t answer the question.News media are not the least embarrassed to invoke the Kipling just-so story formula, “how the x got its y.”  In this week’s iteration about cat stripes, Live Science headlined, “How the tabby got its stripes.”  Science Daily was a little more creative (or verbose) with, “How the Sub-Saharan Cheetah Got Its Stripes: Californian Feral Cats Help Unlock Biological Secret.”  Even the prestigious journal Science‘s news site got into the act with, “How the Tabby Got Its Blotches.”What the original paper in Science found were genes in tabby cats that, when mutated, form blotches rather than stripes.  Then the research team checked mutant cheetahs with blotches and found the same mutation.  That’s about all.  The paper is by Kaelin et al., in Science, “Specifying and Sustaining Pigmentation Patterns in Domestic and Wild Cats” (21 September 2012: Vol. 337 no. 6101 pp. 1536-1541, DOI: 10.1126/science.1220893).  The most detailed summary was on Science Daily, echoing a Stanford press release, “How the Cheetah Got Its Stripes: A Genetic Tale by Stanford Researchers” (there they go again).“We were motivated by a basic question,” said Barsh of the turn to the study of big (and little) cats. “How do periodic patterns like stripes and spots in mammals arise? What generates them? How are they maintained? What is their biological and evolutionary significance? It’s kind of surprising how little is known. Until now, there’s been no obvious biological explanation for cheetah spots or the stripes on tigers, zebras or even the ordinary house cat.”That’s about all that was said by anyone about evolution: only questions.  None of the scientists or authors explained how these genes “emerged” in the first place.  None of them explained how genes, inside of cells, create precision patterns on the external fur of multicellular mammals.  The press release said that many animals, such as fish and insects, have patterns, but they grow them differently: they add more stripes as the animal grows, whereas your kitten’s pattern will remain the same as it grows to adulthood. That was cause for more questions:“Somehow, cells in the black stripes know they are in a black stripe and remember that fact throughout the organism’s life,” said Barsh. “We were curious about what’s happening at the boundary between light and dark stripes and spots. How do these spots know to grow with an animal?”Even though it is evident that a cheetah’s sports or a tiger’s stripes aid camouflage, nobody explained why some cats are monocolored, some are spotted, some are striped, and some have chaotic markings with no clear function at all.  In short, they promised but did not deliver.So the question is, does Darwin provide a better explanation than Kipling’s?  We learned about a couple of genes, it’s true.  We know that mutations create observable changes in the pattern.  We know the same mutation found in a tabby cat creates a similar change in a cheetah.  But do we know How the tabby got its stripes?  No! – not by evolutionary theory, the explanatory toolkit that is advertised as the great principle that makes sense of everything in biology.  All we know is that when a cat embryo grows, certain genes are switched on and regulated by other genes.  We may know which genes are involved, and how they are regulated, but we still don’t know “How the tabby/cheetah got its stripes.”  Moreoever, we don’t know why some animals have them and others don’t.Think of all the ways Kipling’s story is better than Darwin’s.  It’s amusing.  It’s entertaining.  It can be understood by children.  It’s whimsical.  It’s fanciful.  It has no connection to reality.  Wait– we take that back.  That’s all true of Darwin’s story as well.

Did Christianity Evolve from a ‘Vengeful God’ Myth?

first_imgA typical theory on the ‘evolution of religion’ commits multiple logical blunders, not the least of which is ignoring evidence.What’s wrong with this line of reasoning?* ‘The Greeks reached a certain population size. At that population size, the idea of Zeus arose. Zeus was a vengeful god. Having a vengeful god gave the powerful a way to control the population. Conclusion: This explains the origin of religions.’Click the Baloney!*Let us count the ways (see Baloney Detector): non-sequitur, glittering generalities, faulty syllogism, circular reasoning, suggestion, association, post hoc, circumstantial evidence, reductionism, extrapolation, straw man, bluffing, card stacking, and subjectivity. Enough? Don’t rule out half-truth and big lie.Evolutionists think that everything evolved, including religion. But then, so did evolutionary storytelling. Therefore, evolutionary storytelling cannot be trusted. This falsifies what follows, but let’s consider a recent ‘evolution of religion’ story by Live Science‘s arch-DODO reporter, Charles Q. Choi, who writes: “When Ancient Societies Hit a Million People, Vengeful Gods Appeared.” As with all evolutionary scenarios, Stuff Happens. Vengeful gods “appeared” in a typical evolutionary poof spoof, presumably by natural selection, not by a theophany. And certainly not by intelligent design!To rub his story in the face of Jews and Christians, Choi begins with a Bible verse where God expresses vengeance against his enemies. Deflecting blame for a bad story somewhat, he falls back on some fellow DODOs, evolutionary anthropologists from a university in Japan, who did ‘research’ to support the story. First, the older Darwinian account:Ancient societies often used supernatural forces to explain natural phenomena, such as lightning. But in the past several millennia, religions also used supernatural forces to enforce moral codes. For example, the Egyptian sun god, Ra, judged the fate of people in the afterlife according to how well they followed the code of “maat,” or “what is right.”Past work suggested that the rise of this idea of cosmic enforcement of morality was associated with social complexity. The concept of supernatural judgment evolved to help strangers in large societies cooperate, researchers hypothesized. Some work, such as analyses of Austronesian religions or of the Viking age in Scandinavia, suggested that moralizing gods preceded complex societies, while other research, such as a study of Eurasian empires, found that moralizing gods followed the rise of complex societies.Now, Choi brings in his latest evolutionary storyteller, Patrick Savage, whose ‘research’ points to population size as the driver of the emergence of moralizing gods.The researchers found that belief in moralizing gods usually followed increases in social complexity, generally appearing after the emergence of civilizations with populations of more than about 1 million people.“It was particularly striking how consistent it was [that] this phenomenon emerged at the million-person level,” Savage said. “First, you get big societies, and these beliefs then come.“Beliefs come. Stuff happens. Maybe a million-person society triggers a mutation in the religion gene or something. Evolutionists don’t believe in free will, so this cannot have been a deliberate choice by intelligent minds. Savage tries not to savage all religions. They might be useful, in some sense.“We are not saying anything about the value of religion,” Savage added. “We are not saying it is good or bad, but we are saying it has a deep and consistent relationship with societies throughout world history. Religion is deeply intertwined with what it means to be human, for better and for worse.”But of course they are saying a lot about the value of religion. They are saying it has no value, because it isn’t true. What is valuable, if it is a product of blind dumb luck? What is truth? It evolved. It’s merely an epiphenomenon of human behavior, which (if Darwinism is to be trusted), reduces to physics and energy.What these reductionists don’t realize is that the same thing can be said about science. It emerges when a population reaches a certain size, for better and for worse [cue sound of implosion].There are multiple ways this ‘evolution of religion’ story can be refuted, not the least of which is that it is self-refuting. We have explained that problem many times, showing how evolutionists with the Yoda complex fail to realize that their ideas undermine their own concepts. We could also explore the half-truth problem. Just because some false religious use vengeful gods to control the population, it is logically false to assume all do. The story could be refuted by all the fallacies listed above after the asterisk.To believe the evolutionary timeline, you have to accept multiple miraclesThis time, let’s consider how Choi and Savage totally misrepresented the Bible and ignored objective evidence. The Bible, unlike any other ‘holy book’ (most of which are long speculations of teachers disconnected from testable evidence), is replete with events, place names and evidences that can be checked. The middle east, along with parts of Asia and Europe mentioned in the New Testament, is filled with archaeological sites that match the text (look at just one recent example on CBN News). The geology of the Earth can be tested against the description of a world-wide Flood. The age of the Earth can be checked against the genealogies of Genesis. Of course evolutionists are going to have their own timelines, but those have major problems (see ICR’s Six Biological Evidences of a Young Earth and Five Global Evidences for a Young Earth). A series of films on YouTube from the 2017 movie “Is Genesis History?” goes into detail about evidence from all branches of science, whether astronomy, geology, paleontology, linguistics, and archaeology, that support the recent Genesis timeline. This is testable, objective, scientific support for the Bible.In addition, there is an abundance of eyewitness testimony. Jesus was followed by crowds of people who witnessed his miracles: stilling the storm, feeding 5000 people with a few loaves and fish, and feeding another 4000 on another occasion. He raised the dead, healed every kind of sickness, including congenital blindness and deafness. Not only that, he fulfilled numerous detailed prophecies in the Old Testament that could not have been rigged or foreseen by mere human speculation (see Messianic Prophecies) and Prophecies and Promises from TheJohn1010Project.com). Even skeptics admit his teachings are among the most sublime and exalted ever uttered. And his death and resurrection was witnessed by numerous eyewitnesses outside Jerusalem. He was seen alive by over 500 at one time, Paul says in I Corinthians 15. All the apostles died martyr’s deaths without changing their testimony that they had seen Jesus Christ alive from the dead, and ascended bodily to heaven. What they witnessed with their own eyes, and what they felt with their own hands, changed their lives, and turned them from wishy-washy cowards into bold witnesses to the death for the truth of what they knew.Jesus came to seek and save the lost, not to wreak vengeance, as if he were on a personal vendetta. Unlike pagan gods who punish humans for silly things like irritation over how much racket they make, God’s vengeance is always based on justice. It would be a tragic world if there were no consequences for evil. The righteous Judge of the universe will see to it that all evil will be not succeed; Hitler and other murderers will not get away with it. Only this can give us hope that we live in a meaningful universe. Jesus also told Pilate that he came to bear witness to the truth. Truth matters in Christianity! The Christian gospel is so far removed from Choi and Savage’s simplistic “vengeful god” story as the east is from the west. The Bible invites testing and scrutiny. Read it for yourself and see! This is not the work of storytellers like the Darwinists are (see yesterday’s post). This is the account of eyewitnesses who related what they saw and experienced. The Bible covers almost two millennia of evidence for God, told by some 40 writers from different cultures and languages, all relating their testimony of the same God working through history from creation to consummation. It is a unified story from beginning to end. It is the anchor of western civilization, with a message of “good news of great joy for all the people,” embraced by members of every tribe, nation, and language. How dare Choi and Savage trifle with this mountain of evidence and reduce it to an evolutionary tale! “Choose you this day whom you will serve,” Joshua said. In our day it is Darwin vs the God of Creation. Joshua was an eyewitness of God’s action in space and time for his whole life, from Egypt to the Promised Land. “As for me and my house,” he continued, “we will serve the Lord.”Many years ago my father, James F. Coppedge, a preacher, scientist, strong anti-evolutionist and defender of Biblical creation, wrote a song based on this passage.Have you made sure of Heaven, or are you drifting still,Counting on chance, when safety depends on your will?Christ has died for you, your debt of sin to pay;All you must do is receive Him: choose you this day.ChorusChoose you this day! will you serve Christ or sin?Choose you this day! Why lose when there’s heaven to win?Choice, not chance, will govern your fate;Your heart needs Christ; there’s no need to wait;Choose then today, lest you be too late —Choose you this day!

Maoist couple surrenders

first_imgDue to the increased penetration of security forces into the erstwhile cut-off area of Balimela reservoir because of the recently inaugurated Gurupriya bridge, a hardcore Maoist couple surrendered in Odisha’s Malkangiri district on Sunday.It was a blow to the clout of the Maoist outfit as the couple surrendered before Makangiri Superintendent of Police Jagmohan Meena on the second day of martyrs’ week being observed by Naxalites. The surrendered Maoists are Waga Urmani and his wife Mude Madhi.A reward of ₹4 lakh had been declared for the capture of Urmani, while his wife had a ₹1-lakh reward on her head. Both were active members of the Andhra-Odisha Border Military Platoon of the outlawed CPI (Maoist) organisation and were operating in the region that had remained cut-off from the mainland due to Balimela reservoir till the inauguration of Gurupriya bridge. Now the region has been named ‘swabhiman area’.‘Realised futility’ Speaking to newsmen after their surrender, Urmani and Madhi said the Gurupriya bridge was a major reason behind their surrender as it had enabled the setting up of a camp of security personnel, enabling enhanced anti-Maoist operations. They also claimed that they had realised the futility of the violent activities of Maoists. They were also critical of the activities of Maoist leaders like Dhananjay Gope alias Sudheer, who were involved in exploitation of women and attacks on innocents.Both of them were involved in around 40 cases of Maoist violence, including murders. Urmani was allegedly involved in at least nine murders, while Madhi in seven killings.According to the SP, both of them would be rehabilitated as per the surrender and rehabilitation policy of the Odisha government for surrendered Maoists.last_img read more
