Ghanaian Top female artist Yvonne Nelson is expected to arrive in Liberia for the premiere of the movie “If Tomorrow Never Comes”, a movie which critics say is bond to create a stir.Paries Augusta Nyeswah, a Liberian who is the of founder Sta Service Team and the event organizer, said that a percentage of the proceeds generated from the movie premiere will go directly to My Hearts Appeal, a not-for-profit organization that caters to children with Down’s Syndrome in Liberia.“We will be having a party for the kids in the morning before the premiere, where our foreign guests will meet the children to interact and shared fun,” Madam Nyeswah said. Madam Nyeswah said that a few days before Christmas, VIP, which comprises two old members of the famous Ghanaian HipLife group VIP along with Reggie Rockstone, the founder of HipLife, are expected to perform at a star-studded event with other notable Liberian artistes and groups along with Liberian-Ghanaian based artist Irene Logan.The premiere is a red carpe event and local artists will have the chance to network with the featured artists and group face to face, to help personally build up their relationship for the future.Madam Nyeswah added, “we know our industry in Liberia has not fully developed to be recognized outside, but the network with foreign stars who are big in the Diaspora will help to showcase and headline the local Liberian artists as well as inspire them to unleash their full potential. “Yvonne Nelson and VIP are really excited about this trip and they cannot wait to be in Liberia,” Madam Nyeswah noted.“If Tomorrow Never Comes” is a movie that tells a classic story of a young girl, Ewurabana, whose uncle wickedly sold her into slavery after her mother died, leaving her and her kid brother alone in the village to fend for themselves and went through all kinds of grievous treatments in the hands of her handlers. The movie stars include Yvonne Nelson, David Dontoh, Khareema Aguiar, Becca, Kweku Elliot, and others. The movie will premiere at the Monrovia City Hall on December 19 with an after party where Yvonne Nelson will personally interact with the audience. Admission is US$60 for VIP and US$25 for ordinary guests.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
– Advertisement – Dozens of registered voters who said they turned out very early to cast their votes for the next corps of leaders of Liberia, reported they were disappointed with the way polling places were organized in Douala. Three communities, including Douala, St. Paul’s Bridge and New Kru Town registered at Saint Mary’s Catholic Senior High School, which turned out to be one of the most populated polling places in Bushrod Island. There, two different sections divided into three different polling places (from 1-3), had flyers attached to each door that read: Polling place 1, 720470137-720474977 (voting prevent code 30082); Polling place 2, 720474987-738180507 (voting prevent code 30082); Polling place 3, 738180517-762175437 (voting precinct code 30082); Section two, polling place 1, 720460117-720464197 (voting precinct code 30083); Polling place 2, 720464217-762171397 (voting precinct code 30083); Polling place 3, 762171407-762175417 (voting precinct code 30083). As hundreds of men and women, including teenagers, queued up patiently to cast their votes, many were turned away at the door by polling staff. “This is not the room you’re supposed to cast in your vote; go so,” was what most voters were told at almost every door. “Why are they confusing us, so we will leave? This will cause me not to cast my vote because it’s shameful being told over and over that I’m at the wrong room,” stated a voter. At our reporter’s disposal were copies of the final registration roll, which she was able to use to begin calming people down and helping them to the right locations. About a handful of people at 5:52 p.m. still could not find the right room after spending hours being turned around. “Those that can’t find their rightful place, give us your particulars and we will do a search to make sure you vote. Your vote matters,” a staff yelled over a megaphone. At 5:54 p.m., the gates at Saint Mary were closed and locked with a padlock. The lock was only opened to allow those who completed voting to leave. One voter cursed and yelled and was eventually taken into polling place 2, precinct 30083 to be helped, while more then 20 registered voters stood in line at 5:56 p.m. waiting to cast their votes. Also, some elections observers complained of hunger, though several were seen taking lunch breaks during the commotion. One observer who said he was sent to the polling center by the Unity Party, boasted that though his stomach was empty and his mouth dry, he was able to do his job. “Since 5 a.m., they never checked on us or even gave us water; I brought my own pen and books. What’s important is making sure this works out well,” he added. Meanwhile, 6:07 p.m., those who were not able to find their rightful voting places were all in the rooms hurriedly casting their votes with panic written on their faces for fear that they would be disqualified, not due to their fault, but those of the polling staff.“They didn’t show us where to go; they only said go that way, and there are many rooms. I will vote before I move from here,” one woman stated as she stood inside the polling place with her hands on her hips. It turned out that what seemed to be the cause of the confusion at polling places was the fact that many did not read the flyers on the board. They depended on being directed to the right place, rather then finding it for themselves.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

The Clippers had another subpar night on offense after matching their season low in points (74) against the Spurs on Monday. They shot just 41 percent, and were outrebounded 48-35. Tim Thomas had 14 points, nine rebounds, two assists and two steals for the Clippers, who lost for the third time in four games following a three-game winning streak and are in a tough stretch, with four of five games on the road. The Clippers are home against Detroit on Sunday before playing at San Antonio, Houston and Charlotte in a four-day span next week. “You have to bring it right now,” Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. The Clippers had won the previous two meetings and nine of 11 against Golden State, but the Warriors took a 65-48 lead at halftime. The Warriors finally have the healthy lineup that coach Don Nelson has believed all along could make a legitimate playoff push. A lot still must go right, yet the Warriors are doing what they can to remain in the race. Having Baron Davis back sure makes a big difference. OAKLAND – The Clippers are fighting to hold on to the No. 8 and final spot in the Western Conference playoff race, but it was Golden State that looked more like the team that really wanted a postseason berth Friday night. The Warriors, who are currently No. 10 in the West, tightened up the playoff race with a 99-89 win over the Clippers, who still have sole possession of the No. 8 spot. But Sacramento is just a game back, and Golden State is 1 1/2 games behind. “They just seemed like a team that wanted it more than us in that first half,” said Clippers forward Elton Brand, who had 11points, nine rebounds and five assists. “We have to play with confidence, play loose. We can’t put any added pressure on ourselves. “We’re trying to catch the teams ahead of us with the teams behind us trying to make a charge. It’s a tight race.” Davis had 25 points, sevenrebounds and three assists to lead Golden State. “Baron came in and saved us,” Nelson said. Reserve Matt Barnes added 16 points and eight rebounds for the Warriors, who have their first three-game winning streak since November. Golden State hasn’t been to the playoffs since 1994, the league’s longest drought. “We’re getting closer and closer to the playoffs, and everybody believes we can make the playoffs,” Warriors center Andris Biedrins said. “We’ve got to stick together.” Golden State’s Jason Richardson was held to eight points and played only 17 minutes because of foul trouble, but the Warriors got enough balance from the rest of their roster for a key win. Stephen Jackson had 16 points and six assists, and Al Harrington added 12 points and sixboards. “When Baron Davis and Stephen Jackson play together, it sets the tempo,” Nelson said. “It’s just a contagious thing and it’s happening at the perfect time of the year.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Saturday’s performance was the latest breakthrough for Bryant, who threw a then personal-best 64-6 to win the 2006 Pacific-10 Conference on his final throw of the competition and went on to place seventh in the NCAA championships. It was also a joyous evening for Long Beach State senior Ronald Curry who placed fourth in the triple jump at 52-4 to earn his second All-American honor after placing seventh in the outdoor championships last June. Carter was one of two Long Beach State athletes to earn All-American honors in the two-day meet along with Jimmy Grabow, who placed 11th in the 5,000 meters on Friday. UCLA placed seventh in the team competition with 23 points, buoyed by a victory by Rhonda Watkins in the long jump on Friday, and a runner-up finish by Allie Bohanon in the mile in 4:43.36 on Saturday. Arizona State defeated Tennessee, 38-30, for the title. In the men’s competition, Wisconsin won with 40 points, followed by Florida State with 35 and Texas in third with 34. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Bryant is the first USC thrower to win an indoor national title in the shot put and the Trojans’ first NCA champion in the event since 1962. His winning throw was a career-best by nearly three feet. “I might have surprised some people who were here watching but training is going good,” Bryant said. “I felt really good. I knew that I should win and I just went out and did it.” Bryant’s throwing career had appeared in doubt after a horrific accident while competing in the hammer throw at a meet at Cal State Northridge on April 2, 2005. An errant throw by Bryant ricocheted off the steel chain link fencing and the 16-pound steel ball caromed straight down at Bryant’s face. Bryant managed to slightly deflect the ball with a hand but there was still considerable damage to his face. He underwent two hours of surgery and had terrible headaches for weeks. Small scars are a constant reminder of the accident. Bryant’s triumph on Saturday came after missing most of the 2005 season after shattering bones in his face beneath his right eye when he was struck by a hammer he threw. “I pretty much forgot about that,” Bryant said. “It’s over now. I don’t even think about it. All I am thinking about is throwing far.” FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Noah Bryant is as good as new and maybe even better. The USC senior won the shot put with a school-record 67 feet, 5 inches in the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships at the University of Arkansas’ Randal Tyson Track Center on Saturday.
Wanyama was sidelined for four months last season and the development is another blow for the White Hart Lane club’s engine room.Pochettino is already missing World Cup pair Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele, while Harry Winks and Josh Onomah are also sidelined.“Victor is back in London because he needs to see the doctor there and assess in the next few days and see what happened,” Pochettino said.Sissoko was removed in the first-half of a match which saw a spirited Spurs come from 2-0 down with goals from Son Heung-min and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou to force a draw against a similarly under strength La Liga side.‘We’ll assess tomorrow, the next few days to see what happened,’ the Argentine said. ‘We hope it’s a minor injury but he feels his hamstring.’Tottenham are yet to make a signing in this transfer window but Pochettino remains relaxed about the situation.‘I think we’re going to, sure, see what happens in the next few days,’ he said. ‘If you say we need to sign there, maybe, but with or without injuries that was our target after we finished last season – to add some players with qualities that can help us achieve all that we want. With or without, I think we are going to.‘Of course (I’m relaxed),’ he added. ‘After many years in football, I think nothing’s going to change if you have different moods or humour. You need to be relaxed, working hard.My focus is trying to help the team and develop the way we want to play and arrive in the best condition to start the season.

More public awareness about mental illness, spurred partly by heavy marketing of psychiatric drugs, could have contributed to the surge. And early in the study, a leading manual of psychiatric illnesses expanded criteria for diagnosing bipolar disorder, Olfson noted. Symptoms include extreme mood swings and disruptive behavior. In children, extreme irritability is sometimes the main symptom. It affects more than 5 million adults. The causes are uncertain but the disorder tends to run in families. Dr. David Fassler, a University of Vermont psychiatry professor, said research suggests that close to half of children thought to be bipolar may be misdiagnosed. He said parents should get a second opinion if they have concerns about a diagnosis or proposed treatment. “Bipolar disorder is not always easy to recognize in children and adolescents. There’s considerable overlap with other conditions, including ADHD, conduct disorder, anxiety disorders and depression,” said Fassler, who was not involved in Olfson’s study. Dr. Thomas Insel, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, which partially funded the research, said the study “waves a flag saying we’ve got to do much, much better in finding ways to validate psychiatric diagnoses in children. This is an area that really needs hard science.” The study appears in the September issue of Archives of General Psychiatry. It follows a report showing a big increase in U.S. children hospitalized with bipolar disorder, from 1.3 per 10,000 in 1996 to 7.3 per 10,000 in 2004, published in June in the journal Biological Psychiatry. Olfson and colleagues analyzed annual surveys of outpatient visits from the National Center for Health Statistics. Adult visits for bipolar disorder also increased during the study but not as markedly. A generation ago, bipolar kids were likely mislabeled as simply truants or troublemakers, said Christine Walker, of Winnetka, Ill., whose 7-year-old son, Schuyler, was diagnosed a few years ago. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The numbers echo other estimates suggesting as many as 1million U.S. children are bipolar, but it remains a controversial diagnosis in children. That’s partly because their symptoms often differ from adults’ and because most powerful antipsychotic drugs used to treat bipolar disorder were approved for adults and have not been well-studied in children. Some doctors believe bipolar disorder doesn’t occur in children, and until last month there was only one drug approved to treat the illness in kids. The study’s lead author, Dr. Mark Olfson of Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, said the results likely reflect over-diagnosis now or under-diagnosis in the past, rather than a true increase. Olfson has received speaking fees from Janssen LP, which makes one of the pediatric bipolar drugs, and has consulted for other makers of psychiatric drugs. Dr. Sharon Hirsch, a University of Chicago psychiatrist, said that while she is treating increasing numbers of bipolar children, she doubts there’s a “vast epidemic.” By Lindsey Tanner THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – A new analysis suggests there’s been a huge increase in the number of U.S. children diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but experts question whether the surge is real and say some kids have been mislabeled. Researchers looked at the number of times children under 19 went to the doctor and were diagnosed with or treated for bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression. They found a 40-fold increase, from an estimated 20,000 visits in 1994 to 800,000 in 2003. The jump coincided with children’s rising use of antipsychotic medicine.
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson David Toms missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole that could have caught Appleby, settling for an even-par 73 to join U.S. Open champion Michael Campbell (72), former U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk (72) and three-time major champion Vijay Singh (74) at 2-under 144. Sergio Garcia (74) and Olin Browne (76) were the only other players to survive par on a Plantation course that was tough on lightning-quick greens that moved to warp speed when the gusts were at a peak. The course average was 75.5, the toughest round in the eight-year history at Kapalua, and the wind is responsible for most of that. Appleby figured the wind alone made the course as many as five shots harder. “It’s more of a grind,” he said. “You have to work harder to put a score on the card. There’s no real run of birdies.” Fifteen players were within five shots of the lead. KAPALUA, Hawaii — The scenery suggests a vacation in paradise. The golf was all work Friday in the Mercedes Championships, in which defending champion Stuart Appleby survived 35 mph gusts for a 1-under par 72 to take a one-shot lead into the weekend. The trade wind was among the fiercest since this season-opening event moved to Kapalua in 1999, but the name atop the leaderboard should look familiar. Appleby is trying to become the first player in nearly 50 years to capture the winners-only tournament three consecutive times. But it hasn’t been easy. He hit his tee shot into the knee-high weeds on the 18th hole and made a bogey, finishing his two rounds at 3-under 143. He won the last two years with scores of 21 and 22 under par. “If anyone gets to double figures, that would be excellent golf,” Appleby said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
