My Unlawful Detention at Salem Police Depot

first_imgDear Mr. Editor:On April 10, at about 12:30am, I was on my way home on the Airfield, just three blocks away from the Police Depot  and came in contact with two vehicles parked on the road with no place for commuters to pass. I waited for two minutes for one of the vehicles to move so I could go home, but to no avail.I finally touched the cars so that the occupants could be aware that they had blocked the road.No one acknowledged that I was there so the second time I touched the car, a white fellow came out and said, “Look, do you know who’s in the car?” And as soon as he said that, he pulled me by my shirt and I told him, “I don’t want to know you but I just want you to leave the road so I can go home.”After a while, like two minutes later, a gentleman came from the front seat, someone that I recognized as the police commander for that depot (Salem) on the Airfield.I was escorted to the police station on the Airfield and it was there that police officers asked me to sit down and began to ask for my name.Later, another officer told me to go and sit on the prisoners’ bench and asked me to take off my slippers and belt, and I did. He said, “You have the opportunity to make only one phone call.” Already I had given my belongings to a friend of mine who was walking with me when the incident occurred.Later another officer said, “Look, go in that room and sit there. I cannot put you in jail because I know you and you live around here (Airfield) and in fact you can’t put someone in jail because they knocked on your car and asked you to move from the road.”Actually, this officer did what he told me on his own. After eight to ten minutes, I heard someone ordering, “Release that man,” and an officer ordered me to go.Mr. Editor, my complaint has to do with (my) unlawful detention by the police commander.Also, the manner in which he took the law into his own hands was a complete violation of my rights.As a citizen I’m troubled by the incident I have explained, as UNMIL is drawing down to depart Liberia in 2016. Though this is an isolated incident, there are chances that many Liberians may have encountered police brutality, perpetrated by Liberians against Liberians. What happens if UNMIL finally leaves Liberia?Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

IT’S DO OR DIE TIME FOR HARPS AS THEY FACE WEXFORD YOUTHS

first_imgFinn Harps Manager Peter Hutton knows his side has to get back to winning away again if they are to get themselves back into the promotion race.Friday’s game against Wexford Youths at Finn Park (kick-off 8.00pm) gives his side the ideal opportunity to do this – against a side who have lost all of their last four games.Harps, of course, don’t exactly go into the game in a rich view of form themselves. They can only point to two points returned from the last seven league games and last week fell to their heaviest defeat of the season when losing 4-0 against Mervue United at Fahy’s Field. “I was disappointed to say the least with the outcome of the game in Mervue,” said Hutton. “We were a bit buoyed after the performance the previous week against Longford but unfortunately we didn’t do anything to the same level against Mervue – the performance was very lacklustre.”While Hutton agrees that Mervue were well worth their four goal victory, he said that his own side helped them in that regard.“Mervue certainly deserved their win but I haven’t seen us play as badly in a long, long time and that contributed to their victory. We were very lacklustre, particularly in the first half and we played like we were strangers and hadn’t played together before.”Despite all the doom and gloom that goes with a winless run like Harps are on at present, Hutton feels that a victory against Wexford on Friday night could be the catalyst to kick-start the season again for his troops. “Although people look at the league table and see us seven or eight points behind the play-off spots, there is still everything left to play for. There are a lot of games still to go this season and plenty of points to be won. At one stage we were 12 points behind Longford in top spot but a run of good results seen us move up to second and get to within touching distance of them.”“It’s imperative that we go on another run now and given the fact that it’s such a small league in terms of the number of teams and clubs are playing each other very frequently, things can change again very quickly. If we could manage to get a couple of wins under our belt, it will certainly push us back up the table again very quickly.”Harps will look to get that first vital victory on Friday evening against Wexford Youths. In the previous two league games between the sides this season, Wexford hold the upper hand with a home win and a draw at Finn Park in the opening weeks of the season. However, Harps did defeat the Youths in the FAI Cup by the odd goal in three at the end of May.“Of late the performances have been very patchy and inconsistent,” continues Hutton. “We got a decent performance two weeks ago against Longford but it was the complete opposite in Meruve and that was very disappointing and we just weren’t at the races.“If we are realistic about trying to get one of the play-off spots, it is imperative that we string a few wins together and we have got to the stage now where pretty much games are a must-win – starting this evening against Wexford Youths.” TEAM NEWSSuspended: NoneDoubtful: NoneInjured: Damien McNulty (foot), Thomas McMonagle (foot) Form Guide (last six league games)Finn Harps: L-L-L-D-D-L (2 pts)Mervue United: L-W-L-L-L-L (3 pts)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Last six home games against Wexford Youths24-Sep-10 – Finn Harps 1-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)06-May-11 – Finn Harps 0-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)22-Oct-11 – Finn Harps 4-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)24-Mar-12 – Finn Harps 0-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)21-Jul-12 – Finn Harps 3-3 Wexford Youths (First Division)05-Apr-13 – Finn Harps 0-0 Wexford Youths (First Division)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Goalscorers 2013Sean McCarron – 8 (1 in FAI Cup)Kevin McHugh – 6Michael Funston – 3Keith Cowan – 3 (1 in FAI Cup)Thomas McMonagle – 2Thomas McBride – 1 (in League Cup)Matt Harkin – 1 (in League Cup)James Doherty – 1 (in League Cup)Marc Brolly – 1 (in League Cup)Aaron O’Hagan – 1 (in League Cup)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Results 2013 (Harps goalscorers in brackets)19-Jul-2013 – AL – Mervue United 4-0 Finn Harps12-Jul-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 0-0 Longford Town28-Jun-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 2-2 Cobh Ramblers (Funston, Cowan)28-Jun-2013 – AL – Waterford United 3-0 Finn Harps14-Jun-2013 – AL – Salthill Devon 2-1 Finn Harps (Funston)08-Jun-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 2-3 Athlone Town (Funston, Cowan)31-May-2013 – FAI – Finn Harps 2-1 Wexford Youths (Cowan, McCarron)24-May-2013 – AL – Wexford Youths 2-1 Finn Harps (McCarron)20-May-2013 – LC – Finn Harps 1-1 Derry City (O’Hagan) – Derry win 6-5 on penalties17-May-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 1-0 Mervue United (McCarron)11-May-2013 – AL – Longford Town 2-3 Finn Harps (McCarron, McHugh, McDonagh og.)04-May-2013 – AL – Cobh Ramblers 2-2 Finn Harps (McHugh, McCarron)26-Apr-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 0-1 Waterford United19-Apr-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 1-0 Salthill Devon (McMonagle)12-Apr-2013 – AL – Athlone Town 1-0 Finn Harps05-Apr-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 0-0 Wexford Youths29-Mar-2013 – AL – Mervue United 2-2 Finn Harps (McMonagle, McHugh)23-Mar-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 1-0 Longford Town (McHugh)15-Mar-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 4-1 Cobh Ramblers (McCarron 2, McHugh 2)08-Mar-2013 – AL – Waterford United 1-1 Finn Harps (McCarron)03-Mar-2013 – LC – Mayo League 1-4 Finn Harps (Harkin, Doherty, Brolly, McBride)IT’S DO OR DIE TIME FOR HARPS AS THEY FACE WEXFORD YOUTHS was last modified: July 25th, 2013 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:finn harpswexford youthslast_img read more

Social Innovator: Natalie Killassy

first_imgCEO of Stitch WiseWhy is Natalie a Social Innovator?Natalie grew up in the mining town of Carletonville, but knew nothing about the tough working conditions underground, or the many workers who are permanently disabled because of mining accidents.When she did find out how serious the problem was, she decided she had to do something about it. But what?Having no previous experience in the mines, Natalie did what any driven social entrepreneur would do – experience the environment first-hand. For the next 18 months, Natalie spent eight hours underground researching the safety conditions of the miners.She then started Stitch Wise – a business that employs paraplegics injured on the mines to create innovative products that dramatically enhance safety in the mines.In her own words.“What most businesses don’t realise is that you just need to make a few changes to be able to employ disabled people, and through that process you can harness a huge pool of skills and opportunities for your business.”Fast FactsNatalie and her husband Tim started Stitch Wise with R1. Eleven years later, Stitch Wise generates around R25-million in annual revenues.Stitch Wise supplies 12 000 backfill bags a year to the mining industry and produces cutting-edge rainwear, knee and arm guards.Stitch Wise sets the industry standard in geo-textiles, and has captured 50% of the backfill market in South Africa.The firm employs 128 workers, 50% of whom are differently-abled.Recognition that their staff are not disabled but differently-abled is paramount to Stitch Wise’s philosophy.Great pride is taken in the company’s empowerment programmes, as well as training, social upliftment and contribution to the development of South Africa’s economy.Natalie has received numerous nominations and prestigious awards, most recently a nomination for the Schwab Foundation Award.How can I learn more?To learn more about Natalie and her amazing team, visit Stitch Wise.Contact Stitch WiseTel: 018 788 2622 / 5385Fax: 018 786 3871E-mail: office@stitchwise.co.zaStory first published on SAinfo on 25 April 2008.Source: Brand South Africalast_img read more

Are you crazy?!? No, I’m Radu! Geo-cycling through 16 countries in 5 months.

first_imgWhat kind of bike and equipment do you have?I am riding a slightly modified Cube Travel EXC 2016. It’s not a true touring bike, more like a hybrid/city bike but it works OK.Besides clothing, bike tools, camping and cooking gear, I also carry my climbing gear (for all those T5 caches), some special tools, some small geocache containers, and a trackable banner for the GBTE2017 events.A photo from Country #5, France, and Radu’s “home”.Where have you been sleeping?I’ve spent many nights with friends that were living on my route, I’ve met new people that hosted me either via requests on sites such as couchsurfing.com and warmshowers.org, or sometimes with total strangers that I met the same day. I’ve spent a few nights with geocachers that found out about my tour, saw my events in their area and invited me over for a night. It’s so nice when you and your host have geocaching in common!And of course, I’ve camped in my tent, hammock, even slept in a bus stop once, and sometimes under the open sky, usually at the base of a T5 tree.A photo from Country #6, the United Kingdom.What have you learned?I learned, or better said discovered, how amazing people are, how welcoming and friendly they can be. I also discovered once again, in plenty of examples, how creative geocachers are and had fun finding some breathtaking places and amazing containers!Cracked wheel hub on day 121.Can you tell us about when your bike broke down? On November 2nd, after more than 6800 km, the back wheel hub cracked. The worst thing about my bike breaking was that it made me ruin the perfect 121-day streak I had going. I planned my tour so that I have at least one cache per day… and that is really difficult in this part of Europe because caches are very rare. After I saw the damage on the bike, I just had to get as fast as possible to the first town, before dark falls. I couldn’t risk riding on my bike that far in this condition.Next morning I had to make a decision: keep going on the planned route and maybe find a shop in Negotin, Serbia, or go to a bike shop in Drobeta-Turnu Severin, Romania. The distance was almost the same for both options (about 60 km), but the road to Negotin was quite hilly and I didn’t wanna stress the hub even more by going uphill. So I changed my route and carefully rode the bike over the border into Romania and found the best bike shop ever. The owner was so nice and friendly and even offered me a place to sleep for the night. The bike has never before been in such good shape so I am really happy of my choice to go there!A photo from Country #7, Andorra.What are you looking forward to most at the end of your journey?Wow, this is a thinker. I look forward to arrive home and see my parents. I look forward to deliver all the GBTE2017 coins to all those who ordered one. I look forward to return to Denmark and have a post-GBTE event with all my friends and supporters there. I look forward to begin writing the story of this adventure, to sort all the pictures and videos and relive all the moments while doing that. And of course, I look forward to look at my statistics of this trip…I don’t wanna publicly say anything about a future tour… although the thought is in my head….A photo from Country #8, Spain.This is amazing! Where can I find out more?In addition to my Geocaching.com profile, I have my own website at gbte.radclapa.ro, a special page on Project-GC, a Facebook page, and Instagram where I regularly post. Share with your Friends:More Country #9, Monaco Country #10, Italy 12345678<> When is your journey?I began on Wednesday, July 5th in Odense, Denmark, and will complete the trip on Wednesday, November 15th in Roman, Romania. I started the trip with Event Cache And so it starts? (GBTE2017 departure day) GC70MTZ and will finish it with The END of GBTE2017 GC7D792. Please attend! A photo from Country #4, Belgium.Why are you doing this?I love to travel and I love the freedom of bike touring!I want to promote cycling as an alternative to cars for long distance travels.I want more people to find out about geocaching.I want people that already know about geocaching to see how well this activity connects with cycling and couchsurfing. GC70MTZ Denmank, July 5. The event that started it all.Radu Clapa (Radu C) is Romanian-born and now resides in Denmark. He does not own much in the way of special gear, equipment, or clothing, and insists many people could do what he’s done if they just have the willpower. He swears he’s a normal guy.Except this “normal guy” is doing the exceptional: geocaching on a bicycle through 16 countries, focusing on T5s, Virtual Caches, Webcams, and oh, about 1,400 other “regular” geocaches. He calls the journey, “Geocaching Bicycle Touring Europe 2017”, or GBTE2017.His 7,800 km (4900 mi) adventure started in Denmark on July 5th and will end on Wednesday, November 15th in Romania. Here’s his story. Radu and friends on July 5th at the event that started it all: “And so it starts? (GBTE2017 departure day)” GC70MTZ.Who are you?I am Radu C, the geocacher.On February 24th, 2014, my good friend (Potasiu) and I stopped at this very known bridge in our neighborhood. He showed me the app and told me to search for the hidden treasure. Took me a while, but after a few nudges in the right direction, I managed to find it. We found about five caches that day.Since then all my bike trips became Geocaching Bike Trips (GBT). After (exactly) one year of geocaching I did my first T5 cache. I loved climbing even before learning about geocaches, so you can imagine I just love T5 climbing caches. It’s been two and a half years since my first one, and I currently found more than 300 T5 caches… Still looking for more!I am also Radu, the cyclist.I’ve always loved bicycles and my passion for bike trips was constant and I used every opportunity to travel on a bike. In a time when bike lanes were just a dream, in a country where people consider cycling on the roads a dangerous act, I was the one taking my bike everywhere.A photo from Country #2, Germany.What are you doing?I’m on a bicycling and geocaching tour across 16 European countries, targeting T5 climbing caches, Virtuals, Webcams, plus popular and old caches along the route. The journey should take about four and a half months. As of early November, here some of my statistics:Approximate distance travelled: 7,834 km / 4867 mi Number of caches logged: 1657T5 caches logged: 151Virtual caches logged: 37Webcam caches logged: 11Number of countries visited: 16Number of caches per day: 13.05Unique cache types: 9Unique cache sizes: 7A photo from Country #3, the Netherlands.
