Bishop Malzaire believes that the prevalence of HIV/Aids and other STD’s will continue to escalate if drastic measures are not taken. He says the Catholic Church will continue to advocate for a change in lifestyle among the population. “There is a certain advocacy that the Church has and the kind of advocacy that we have is in the area of prevention. What style of life aught we to live in other prevent it or curb this,” he said.He said HIV/AIDS is by and large a lifestyle disease.“What we proclaim and teach is lifestyle issues. We know that it is not easy as I am saying because people are relating to people. Especially with couples, especially the unfaithful partners of the couple. Things happen and without any knowledge or understanding of what’s happening, some other member of the couple can contract the disease,” he added.Bishop Malzaire said the church has been doing its best to deal with the matter.“The church has been speaking of the disease and its prevention, especially in the area of abstinence. It also talks about having respect for your family. This is the key,” Malzaire said.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring! Sharelast_img read more

Photo credit: lazytechguys.comForty year old Clinton Anatol of Dos D’anne was this morning ordered to pay $5000.00 when he pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent to Davis Moulon of the same village by High Court Judge Bernie Stephenson Brooks.According to the facts presented in Court by Athlyn Nesty, Attorney representing the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, the victim Davis Moulon was at his home cooking on the 25th of May, 2011 about 2pm when the Defendant visited his home.The Defendant asked him for a plate of food and promised to pay him $5.00 which he never did. A few days later on the 29th of May the Defendant went to the victim’s mother grocery shop where he is accustomed to purchase groceries and alcohol.The Defendant asked the shopkeeper Olive to sell him rum but she refused as he appeared drunk to her. He then proceeded to go behind the counter but was cautioned by a villager “to leave the lady alone and cool your meditation”.The Defendant proceeded to stand in the doorway of the shop where Moulon later met him and asked him what he was doing there. He threw a stone at Moulon but missed, then threw a beer bottle which also missed at which point on advice by his mother Moulon ran away.The Defendant pursued him and placed his foot behind Moulon’s foot causing him to fall down and then started beating him repeatedly on his left hand with a stick which broke in two pieces in the process.Moulon was taken to the Portsmouth Hospital and treated for a swollen forearm and fractured left hand which was placed in a cast. The Defendant was cautioned by a police officer and replied; “Yes officer I was drunk I’m sorry”.Counsel for the Defendant Darius Jones in making a plea in mitigation for him told the Court that his client is almost in midlife and has pleaded guilty to the offense and did not seek to waste the Court’s time. Jones explained that his client had also visited Moulon and his family to apologize for his behavior showing deep remorse and regret for his actions.Jones further explained that his client is a carpenter and was influenced by a very common liquid which played a significant role that would account for his behavior. Jones also noted that although his client had previous brushes with the law they are a decade old and he asked the Court to consider that his client has shown tremendous remorse for his actions when sentencing him.Justice Bernie Stephenson-Brookes in sentencing the Defendant noted that his previous convictions were older than 10 years and as such indicates that he has been making attempts to “walk the straight and narrow road”. She told the Defendant however that she must consider the aggravating factor which is that he inflicted pain and suffering on someone who was not deserving. “He fed you and you turn around and beat him that’s not good enough but I trust that you have learned a lesson. Counsel indicated that you are very sorry and that you have gone to the family to ask for forgiveness which is noted” she told him.He was sentenced to pay $5000.00 within 6 months or in default serve 24 months in prison.Dominica Vibes News Share Sharelast_img read more

Fernandinho the glue binding surging Man City together

first_imgFILE PHOTO: Fernandinho, Pep GuardiolaManchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Among a dazzling array of midfield options, it is the often unheralded Fernandinho who Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has relied on most in another stunning start to the season for the Premier League champions.The Brazilian will face old club Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday as City seek to make amends from the only blip of their campaign so far, a shock 2-1 defeat to Lyon in their last Champions League home game.If any reminder was needed over Guardiola’s influence, he was banned from the touchline that night.Since his return, City have won nine and drawn one, a 0-0 stalemate away to Liverpool, of their last 10 games, scoring 29 goals and conceding just two in the process.Although fulsome in his praise of the maturing centre-back pairing Aymeric Laporte and John Stones, Guardiola’s defensive philosophy is dependent on a team effort to keep the ball as far away from City’s goal as possible.“Always we try to convince our players as far away the ball is from our goal, we are safe. It’s much, much better. The moment the ball is around our box, anything can happen,” said Guardiola this week.“In 10 years I was always concerned, always focused, maybe more than any other thing, in defending well.“The only difference is we do it far away from our goal.”Central to that philosophy is Fernandinho’s ability to not just read the game and quickly regain possession, but also use the ball soundly as a springboard to City’s attack.“There is always a relation. When you attack good, you defend well. When you defend well and are solid, you attack better,” added Guardiola.‘Luckiest manager in the world’ Despite turning 33 earlier this year, Fernandinho has started all of City’s 14 Premier and Champions League matches this season, while the more creative talents of David Silva, Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling have had to live with Guardiola’s rotation policy.“Ferna would make any manager the happiest or luckiest in the world,” said Guardiola ahead of City’s 3-0 win in the Ukraine against Shakhtar two weeks ago.“He is a joy to have as a player – he is very special. He will always be a special player for me to work alongside.”Guardiola knows very well the dual demands of Fernandinho’s role having won the European Cup in his days as a player in the same position for Barcelona.Fernandinho received arguably the highest praise from his manager when he claimed even Guardiola the player couldn’t force his way into the current City juggernaut given his form.So far City’s failure to land Jorginho, who instead choose to follow Maurizio Sarri in the move from Napoli to Chelsea in July, to share the burden as the midfield anchor hasn’t proved costly.Instead, Guardiola’s men show no sign of a slip in standards from their record 100-point Premier League campaign last season, as evidenced by a 6-1 annihilation of Southampton on Sunday.It is the Champions League that remains the holy grail for City’s Abu Dhabi owners, though, and despite the Lyon stumble, another victory against Shakhtar will put the English champions well on course to make the last 16 for a sixth straight season.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
