The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, under the auspices of the Gabriel L. Dennis Foreign Service Institute, will hold a special panel discussion under the topic: “The Threat of Terrorism in the West African Region and the Need for Greater Collaboration among West African Nations.”According to a Foreign Ministry release, the forum, which will be held at the C. Cecil Dennis Jr. Auditorium on Friday, May 6, will bring together stakeholders including sub-regional ambassadors, the representative of ECOWAS accredited near Monrovia and security professionals to discuss and devise strategies for collaboration, as well as find ways of preventing and combating terrorism in the sub-region.The forum panelists will include: the Doyen of the Diplomatic Corps and Ambassador of the Republic of Guinea, Mr. Abdoulaye Dore; Ambassador of the Republic of Ghana, Kodjo Asimeng Wadee; Ambassador of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Brima Acha Kamara; and Ambassador of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire, Dr. Feni Kouakou.Others are the Ambassador of the Republic of Cameroon, Mr. Beng Yela Augustine Gang; the Charge d’Affairs of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Mr. Mohammed Tahir; and the Special Representative of ECOWAS, Mr. Tunde Assisomo. The Policy Advisor at the National Security Agency, Mr. Edward Sharpe, will also participate in the panel discussion; while former Information Minister, Dr. Laurence K. Bropleh, will serve as moderator.The reign of terror has risen to a new level as fanatic groups such as Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab and most recently the Islamic State (IS), who not only killed thousands in the name of Islam, but also sent millions of people around the world running for their lives, while followers have spread fear throughout the world.Africa has not been spared such terror. The reemergence of these militant groups, has seen their presence increase across Africa. The regional dimension of Boko Haram extends beyond attacks. The group’s criminal activities, such as arms smuggling and drug trafficking, involve several countries, including Chad, the Central African Republic, Cameroon, Benin, Niger, Mali, Sudan, Somalia and Libya. In the past few years, Boko Haram has killed thousands in its waves of terror attacks. Two and a half million people either fled across borders or are homeless in their own country. With terrorism spreading in Nigeria and among its neighbors, it is even coming closer to Liberia. In November 2015, there was a deadly hostage drama at a Malian Hotel when gunmen stormed the five-star Radisson Blu Hotel in Bamako, Mali, taking hostages and killing at least 21 persons. In January 2016 gunmen attacked the Cappuccino restaurant and the Splendid Hotel in the heart of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, killing 30 persons, while at least 56 were wounded; a total of 176 hostages were released after a government counterattack into the next morning, when the siege ended. Responsibility for the attack was claimed by Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and Al-Mourabitoun. In March 2016, in neighboring Cote d’Ivoire, six gunmen targeted hotels on a beach at Grand Bassam, a weekend retreat popular with Western expatriates about 25 miles east of Abidjan, in which 16 people, including four Europeans, were killed.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Michael Murphy scored 1-3 to see Glenswilly advance to the last eight of the Donegal SFCSt Michael’s and Glenswilly have advanced to the last eight of the Donegal SFC following a nervy evening in Foxhall.At the end of the match which Glenswilly won by two points, St Michael’s were left to nervously wait for news from Towney where Kilcar were playing Bundoran.With Glenswilly defeating St Michael’s, Kilcar had to win by thirty points in order to advance. They defeated Bundoran by twenty-seven points, running out comprehensive winners on a score-line of 5-15 to 0-03.However, their valiant effort were in vain, as Rory Gallagher’s side were eliminated on scoring difference.In fact if they had scored TWO more points, all three sides incredibly would’ve finished level on four points apiece with an equal scoring difference of +23.Glenswilly and St Michael’s finished on +23, but Glenswilly topped the group because they defeated St Michael’s. Kilcar had been the favourites to win the Donegal SFC after defeating Glenswilly a fortnight ago, but a heavy nine-point home defeat to St Michael’s last weekend done the damage.Glenswilly knew they needed a victory against St Michael’s to advance, but for 45 minutes it wasn’t looking good for Gary McDaid’s side.Both teams set up with ultra-defensive systems in place, and it resulted in a truly dour game of football.An incredible statistic from the match is that not ONE single point was scored by either side from play throughout the entire match.St Michael’s were the brighter side in the first-half, and despite falling behind to an early Michael Murphy free, they seemed to be more comfortable playing the defensive system. A free from Colm McFadden cancelled out Michael Murphy’s opener, and then an wonderful goal from Martin McElhinney rocked Glenswilly.It was a wonderful move, McElhinney started the move in his own half-back line, and finished it superbly as St Michael’s worked the ball up the pitch at an incredible tempo.McFadden then pointed a wonder-score from a placed ball to put St Michael’s ahead by four at the break.Glenswilly plodded away in the second-half with no real joy, as they tried to penetrate the St Michael’s rear-guard in the second-half, but were time and again frustrated by the well-organised blanket defence employed by Tony Wilkinson’s side. One free from Michael Murphy got them back to within one score of St Michael’s.However, with fifteen minutes to go and with Glenswilly running out of ideas, Neil Gallagher launched a hopeful ball into the square and Michael Murphy managed to get a fist to it to send it to the back of the net.The goal was a very soft concession from a St Michael’s point of view, and it gave Glenswilly a huge lift going into the last ten minutes of the game.Two free frees, one from Gary McFadden and another from Murphy was enough to edge Glenswilly through.The game was marred by a series of off the ball incidents, as the referee struggled to keep emotions in check in what was a highly charged atmosphere.Incredibly the management from Glenswilly ran onto the pitch on several occasions throughout the game to dispute a number of calls the referee made.One such incident seen Glenswilly manager Gary McDaid run thirty-yards to remonstrate with the referee over a tackle made by Martin McElhinney.A melee broke out at the end of match again, as officials tried to separate both sets of players.In the end both sides advanced, but they could meet again in either a Donegal SFC semi-final or final.DONEGAL SFC: KILCAR BOW OUT, AS ST MICHAEL’S AND GLENSWILLY ADVANCE was last modified: October 12th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Donegal SFCGAAnewsSport

Will Rory Gallagher be named as the new manager of the Donegal GAA Senior team next week?The successor to Jim McGuinness is set to be unveiled early next by the Donegal County Board.The County Board have scheduled a meeting for next Monday, and it’s expected that representatives on the board will announce who is the new Donegal Senior team manager.Rory Gallagher remains the hot favourite with the bookies. The former assistant to Jim McGuinness knows many of the current squad very well, and seems the obvious replacement.However, there is speculation that a lack of experience in managing a team could count against Gallagher.His roles to date have seen the Fermanagh man assistant to Jim McGuinness with the Senior side, and assistant to Maxi Curran with the U21 team.He was joint-manager in Kilcar this year alongside John McNulty. It has also emerged that Paddy Carr could also be in with a strong chance of getting the vacant position.He has a wealth of club and inter-county experience and is seen as a strong candidate for the position.Anthony Harkin, and Cathal Corey are the other two candidates that have applied for the role of Donegal Senior team manager, but neither are likely to get the nod.

Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces It is a common perception around the world that Americans, by and large, have problems relaxing. We don’t take what little vacations we do get and increasingly use technology to blur the line between work and home life. But a new study shows that we’re not the only ones blurring that line — emerging markets may be better practitioners of bring your own device (BYOD) than mature markets.According to two multi-market BYOD surveys released by Ovum, the real BYOD action is in — countries like Brazil, Russia, India and China (the so-called BRIC nations) — where 75% of survey respondents demonstrated a much higher likelihood to use their own devices for work, compared to 44% in more mature markets. Mature markets include nations like the United States, U.K., Japan and Germany, as displayed in the graphic below.“Employees in high-growth, emerging economies are demonstrating a more flexible attitude to working hours, and are happy to use their own devices for work. However, in mature markets, employees have settled into comfortable patterns of working behavior and are more precious about the separation of their work and personal domains,” explained Richard Absalom, consumer impact IT analyst at Ovum.Advantage: Smaller MarketsNot only does this seem to run counter to perceptions of how workers in the U.S. deal with the work/home balance, but if this trend is real, it points to a big advantage for companies in emerging economies over their richer counterparts.“This bifurcation in behavior will shape not just future patterns of enterprise mobility in high-growth markets compared to mature markets, but also dictate which markets, structurally, are going to benefit most from this revolution in how and where we work,” Absalom added.Translation: Emerging-market companies may know better how to implement BYOD policies becuae they’ve had more practice. The question is, will companies in the more -developed nations pay attention to what’s going on in BRIC-like countries or will they ignore these trends and essentially give the field to the smaller-market corporations?The reason up-and-coming nations are getting behind BYOD so much? To get ahead, of course. 79% believe that constant connectivity to work applications enables them to do their jobs better, compared to 53.5% in mature markets. And this is a purely economic driver, too. Spain, which is regarded as a mature economy, is nonetheless suffering enough economic woes that 62.8% of its workers are bringing their own devices to work.“This could have something to do with the struggling economy: People are willing to use any and all means necessary to get ahead in their jobs, as losing them could be disastrous given the high rates of unemployment,” suggested Absalom.Economic Drivers Of BYODThat observation may help explain a broader global trend of BYOD and its rapid rise: Are the recent economic crises in the United States and Europe actually fueling the adoption of BYOD practices by workers who are insecure about their jobs that they want to be perceived as “always on” and therefore a more-valuable company asset?This is not so far-fetched. A Harris Interactive study commissioned by JetBlue last spring revealed about 57% of working Americans had unused vacation time at the end of last year. About 9% of the same respondents indicated they were afraid to take time off in an unstable job market — again, trying to project the perception they were of more value to their employers.While correlation is not proven between these two trends, they do seem like parts of a broader idea that BYOD is not just a matter of being familiar with a mobile device or having the latest cool toy, but a symptom of a larger need to stay connected to work no matter what. If that’s the case, perhaps the solution to a company’s BYOD headaches might be to get their employees less concerned about 24/7 connectivity and encourage richer downtime experiences.

The first autonomous car race, named Roborace, occurred this weekend in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as a prelude to the Formula E championship. Two self-driving racecars took to the track, but sadly one crashed before the race ended.The Devbot electric vehicle misjudged a corner while travelling at over 150km/h, faster than most self-driving car tests carried out by Google, Tesla, and other automakers.See Also: Ford to skip Level 3 autonomy to keep sleepy drivers happy“One of the cars was trying to perform a manoeuvre, and it went really full-throttle and took the corner quite sharply and caught the edge of the barrier,” Roborace’s chief marketing officer Justin Cooke told the BBC.“It’s actually fantastic for us because the more we see these moments the more we are able to learn and understand what was the thinking behind the computer and its data.”Speeding past the wreckageThe other self-driving vehicle was able to complete the course, reaching a top speed of 186km/h (116mph) and turning a few difficult corners without issue.Roborace was created in part to promote the idea of self-driving to a new audience, but also to test artificial intelligence and autonomous systems at high speed. This data may be shared in the future with other automakers.The next race, which will include ten cars, takes different AI concepts and pits teams against one another. Some Formula 1 fanatics have criticized the competition, saying it removes the human element from car racing. Others have said it opens the competition to more customization and lets engineers take the forefront.

Ford has shown one possible way to move to self-driving mode, by making the steering wheel and brake pedals removable.In a patent granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Ford shows how the wheel and pedals could be manually removed and refitted for testing the car. Customers would be able to move from autonomous to manual, simply by attaching the parts back to the car.See Also: Ford spends billions to meet ambitious self-driving goalOnce removed, the parts that connect to the steering wheel are folded away inside the dashboard. An airbag is fitted inside the front dash, replacing the one in the steering wheel.Ford’s patent looks to a future where customers are able to choose between manual and self-driving. This is expected to be between 2025 and 2050, a time when people will still be allowed to drive, but cities and metro areas begin to move to a fully driverless system.Commuters from outside the city may drive into town, before switching to a driverless mode.Ford is aiming for a self-driving vehicle on the road by 2021, though it is expected to be part of the company’s own ride-sharing app. Customers won’t be able to purchase the cars until at least 2026, according to the company’s head of research.What’s odd about the patent is Ford plans to skip Level 3 autonomy and go straight to Level 5, the highest level of self-driving. In that future, the computer will control the car in all environments.
India won the toss and elected to bat first against EnglandWelcome to the coverage of Day 3 of the 4th Test between India and England from the Old Trafford Cricket stadium in Manchester.Day 1 | Day 2 | Match Report India’s tour is getting from bad to worse. The victory at Lord’s seems a distant memory. They started the day trailing by 85, Root and Buttler continued from yesterday. The pair added 134 runs for the 7th wicket. Both got to the their fifties, Buttler though was given two lives, once when he was dropped by Kohli and then Dhoni missed a run-out chance. After lunch, Broad took on the short balls and was hit on the nose trying to pull one. He went off the field and England were all-out for 367. India started steadily with Vijay and Gambhir seeing off Anderson’s first spell, but Woakes got one to nip back in and trapped the former. Gambhir didn’t have the best of comebacks as he fell to a short delivery down leg. After that the floodgates opened, the visitors lost 4 wickets for 8 runs. Dhoni tried to be aggressive, but he too fell to Moeen Ali who has become a real thorn for the Indian batting line-up. The off-spinner took 4 wickets and now has the best strike-rate among all the bowlers in this series. Ashwin and Bhuvneshwar hang around for sometime, but the latter was run-out going for a suicidal run. With two wickets to win, it was matter of time before England wrapped it up. Jordan put his hand up and picked up No.10 and No.11 off consecutive deliveries. Credit to England though, with nearly two sessions being washed out on day 2 and Broad not bowling in the second innings, they cruised to victory. The seniors have come to the fore, Anderson and Broad bowled with venom on the first day. The duo picked up 9 wickets between them and bundled out India for 152.advertisementEngland team gather around and congratulate each other. Cook and Jimmy take a stump as a souvenir. Cook waves the stump around to acknowledge the support his side has got at OT. The Indian team come out and shake hands with the hosts. Cook leads his team to the pavilion, there are plenty of high-fives among the players and the backroom staff. That’s the END OF THE 4th Test.

Gautam Gambhir and Murali Vijay are out in the middle for India while James Anderson will start the proceedings for England. The highlight of the session would be the Broad injury. India came out with a plan to bounce the England lower-order, Broad took on the first two deliveries from Aaron and managed to send it into the crowd. However, the third bouncer from Aaron beat his pull and went smack into the helmet. It broke the head gear and the ball was stuck between his face and the grill. He walked off the field after the team doctor had a look. The latest update is he was getting stitched. We still have no idea as to how bad the injury is. It is now upto the Indian batsmen to pull up their socks and put in a more gutsy performance. They are currently trailing by 215 runs, it is not going to be easy as the pitch still has something in it for the fast bowlers. Can the visitors put in a better show as compared to the first innings?Stuart Broad is off the fields & “Firangis” are short of one bowler #IndvsEng Shanaya (@Sinceere_Angel) August 9, 2014That’s the END OF INNINGS for England as Stuart Broad will not be able to bat for the hosts.You just can’t keep Anderson and Jadeja OUT OF THIS SERIES!!105.3 overs: OUT!!

LUNCH: The biggest story of today’s play has to be Pankaj Singh getting his maiden Test wicket. 415 deliveries of hard, long, desperate toil which earned him the tag of ‘unlucky Pankaj’. It looked like he would be destined to finish without a Test wicket, but that moment finally happened off the 416th delivery as he forced Root to glove one down leg. There were a lot of funny comments on twitter, forecasting what kind of a celebration one would see from Pankaj Singh if and when he got his first wicket – with some saying he should rip his shirt off like Hulk Hogan and do a lap of honor! So what did he do? How did his team-mates react? Did he do the unthinkable? Folks you’ll be disappointed to read this – but he just had a smile and accepted the congrats from his mates. There was relief written all over his face when he got there – that reaction sums up the man more than anything else; quiet, calm, and down-to-earth. Apart from that seminal moment, the session was dominated by Root and Broad who feasted on some poor stuff from the visitors. With Stuart Broad(0) and Chris Woakes(6) at the crease, England are currently at 325/8 after 97 overs.Million pound smile.
