Billy Gilmour and his bad experience with Maguire

first_img“He pushed me and grabbed my neck. He told me he was just a little boy. I will not let it happen again. There I have to learn to be stronger. The moment he grabbed me in the area will help me learn, “Gilmour said.That match ended 1-2 in favor of United with two goals from Marcus Rashford. Batshuayi made the only goal of the blues. Gilmour seems to have learned the lesson and is becoming one of Lampard’s advantageous pupils. Billy Gilmour, with only 18 years, took control of the match against Liverpool. The young man of Chelsea was one of the best in the 2-0 victory that appealed to the FA Cup reds and has earned him praise from the press and even his coach, Frank Lampard, who called his game “incredible.”The Scot had fun on his second night in the England Cup but remembered how he suffered on the first occasion he played in another Cup, the Carabao Cup. On October 30 of last year, Gilmour started against Manchester United in this edition of the League Cup and had a bad night against the red devils, and specifically, trying to overcome Harry Maguire.last_img read more

Solicitor General Authorized to Renew Liberia’s IMO Rep. Diplomatic Passport

first_imgThe Solicitor General, Cllr. Daku Mulbah, has been instructed to ensure the renewal of the diplomatic passports of Atty. Isaac Jackson and his family.Jackson’s lawyer: ‘I cannot continue to represent a client whose actions disrespect the court.’Chief Justice Francis Saye Korkpor says he has ordered the Solicitor General, Daku Mulbah to work out all legal formalities that would ensure the renewal of the diplomatic passports of Liberia’s Permanent Representative to the International Maritime Organization (IMO), Atty. Isaac Jackson and his family that currently reside in London, United Kingdom (UK).Besides, Justice Korkpor also instructed Cllr. Mulbah to work along with Jackson’ legal counsel, Arthur Johnson, in fulfilling his mandate, although there was no specific time set for the Jacksons’ passports renewal, because it was matter of right given by the constitution to a Liberian citizen.The statement by the Chief Justice was in response to the April 22, 2019 edition of the FrontPage Africa Newspaper under the caption “Liberia’s IMO Rep. Vents Anger at Supreme Court Chief Justice Francis Korkpor “My Blood Will Be on His Hands.”It can be recalled that in July 2018, Jackson, himself a lawyer, filed a Writ of Prohibition with the Supreme Court, challenging President George Weah’s decision to unlawfully appoint one Moses Owen Brown to replace him, Jackson.It was during the preliminary hearing of the writ that then Chambers Justice, Jamessetta Howard Wolokollie, on July 23 that same year, placed a stay order requesting the parties, Jackson and President Weah to return to Status quo ante, while she forwarded the matter before the full bench for deliberation.It was after the prohibition argument between Jackson’s lawyer and the government that Cllr. Arthur Johnson informed the chief justice and his colleagues about the refusal of the government to renew the diplomatic passports that were issued to his client, Jackson and his family in October 2016 to facilitate the family’s travel to duty, and that the expiry date was approaching and he on August 24, 2018 applied to renew, which government has failed to do.Johnson also argued that the refusal by the government to renew the Jackson’s passport was a violation of the stay order imposed on the government by then chamber justice.Shortly afterward, Justice Korkpor asked Cllr. Johnson whether his client, Atty. Jackson, was still going to work at his office in the UK and was still receiving his salary, in accordance with the stay order imposed by then Chambers Justice Wolokollie. Johnson answered in the positive, stressing “only for the salary, which had delayed for the past two months and that his client was not certain that said action was deliberate to undermine the stay order.”Atty. Jackson was quoted by the newspaper on Sunday, April 21, 2019, “he remains immensely optimistic that judgment will be rendered in his favor.” The paper further said, Jackson trusted the integrity of those on the Supreme Court Bench, and he lavished praises at the two female justices, Wolokollie and Sie-Nyene Yuoh on the Supreme Court for what he terms as properly grilling Solicitor general Cllr. Mulbah.“I believe that only a compromised Court will rule in favor of the government because the government has got absolutely no intelligent argument upon which to hinge this case for victory,” he said.He added: “God forbids, if I do not win this case, I will come to Monrovia, and submit my issue to the people; and if the Government puts bullets in my head, my blood will be on the hands of Chief Justice Korkpor for his mindless cowardice. Because, I am told that the government has reintroduced the sour voices of notorious ex-rebel generals in our national politics,” the paper further quoted Jackson.Reacting to the story on Monday, April 22, 2019, Atty. Darryl Ambrose Nmah, the director of the Judicial Public Information described the publication as “not only intended to intimidate the courts but also a direct intention to besmear the hard earned reputation of the Chief Justice and, in some cases, associate justices and judges of subordinate courts.”He added that such insinuation reportedly coming from Atty. Jackson was not only unwarranted but also reckless for the fact that Jackson, being a lawyer, knows or ought to know, that opinions and judgments of the Supreme Court are not rendered or made by the chief justice, rather by a unanimous decision of the full bench “or majority members of the bench in which case the single vote of the chief justice could either be with those of the majority or the descent and that Atty. Jackson cannot pre-judge matters that are pending before a court undetermined,” Atty. Nmah argued.“This publication insinuate that a particular party litigant has prevailed in that case,” the Judicial public information director said. ”It was worrying and dangerous for the administration of justice as such publication could send the wrong signals to the reading public and put the safety of the justices and judges at risk.”Further, Director Nmah said, the judiciary remains committed that cases before the courts will be determined based on the facts and circumstances and not on party’s or public sentiments.Meanwhile, Cllr. Arthur Johnson has communicated his decision to withdraw his representation of the IMO Rep., Atty. Isaac Jackson, due to “recent utterances in the press” that appear to threaten the legal practice of Cllr. Johnson. In a carefully worded email to Atty. Jackson, Cllr. Johnson wrote:“My withdrawal from the case stems from the fact of your media appearances both in electronic and print preempting and predicting  the ruling of the Supreme Court and at the same time calling the High Court Chief Justice, Francis Korkpor and Supreme Court into public ridicule . As you are aware of this publication made by you in the Front Page Newspaper , Vol. 13, NO.071, Monday, April 22, 2019 with the story “Liberia  IMO REP Vents Anger at Supreme Court Chief Justice Francis Korkpor ‘MY BLOOD WILL BE ON HIS HANDS’”, it undermines the integrity and dignity of the Highest Court and places it into disrepute .“As a  lawyer before the High Court , I cannot continue to represent a client whose actions disrespect the court. It will show an appearance that I am in support of your action against the Supreme Court Chief Justice . Moreover, you were advised to stay away from the press during our last conversations. Doing this threatens my career as a lawyer because I am not a Politician  but rather a lawyer. As a Counselor -At-Law  and member of the Honourable Supreme Court of Liberia, I am prohibited from supporting any act that undermines the dignity, credibility, and integrity of the Honourable Supreme Court of Liberia, and that is to say all Justices of the Supreme Court of Liberia .In view of the above, please accept this withdrawal without any prejudice but for ethical reasons as contained in the Code of  Moral and Ethical Conduct of Lawyers.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

There are ways to fight debt you didn’t accrue

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityAnswer: First, let me thank you for your service in Iraq. One thing we should probably clear up: Are you sure no one else was using your phone while you were deployed? For purposes of this answer, we are going to assume that either the cell company billing is wrong or someone else has used your phone without your permission. If the cell company made a mistake, I first suggest that you call the company and dispute the bill. Rather than communicate with the debt collector, you should write or call your cell company and move up the chain of command until you get someone who has the authority to straighten out the mess that has been made of your account. Follow up in writing via mail with a return receipt requested. I spoke to two cell carriers and they both seemed more than willing to help a soldier who was one of their customers. If the cell company has sold the debt outright, then dispute the bill in writing with the collector. They will have to stop collection activity until you are sent proof that the debt is actually yours. If you see phone numbers on the bill that you don’t recognize, then you should ask that they be removed. Make sure to keep good records of who you write and speak with and request any concessions, actions, etc., be put in writing and sent to you. If the collector refuses your request, I suggest that you call and insist on speaking to a manager and be prepared to show that you were in Iraq from such-and-such date until such-and-such date. Your orders should cover that. Many cell phone carriers don’t offer service in Iraq, so it may be worth checking to see if yours may be one of them. Make sure to send any letters certified mail, request a signature card, and keep a log of your calls. If it appears as if the calls on your bills originated in Iraq, then it may be that your phone was used without your permission. I asked retired Lt. Col. Luis Beattie, a counselor at Money Management International, what to do in that case and he suggests that you go to your orderly room and speak to the first sergeant. Ask for legal assistance to deal with the collector and also ask to file a report of theft with the military police, who will look into the matter. If someone else had access to your phone while you are out on operations, their identity might be discernable by finding out who received the calls. Army Family Services may be able to help out if you need some additional assistance. For my other military readers and their families, here are a few other facts about the protection afforded to service personnel overseas: For debt collection, you have special rights under the service members Civil Relief Act. Among your rights under the act are: a creditor cannot change the terms of an existing credit agreement; cannot charge you more than 6 percent interest on outstanding accounts; you have the right to a postponement of any court summons for a debt of at least 90 days or until you return to the U.S.; as well as many more.

Red Sox keep rockin’

first_imgGAME 2: Schilling is just the second 40-year-old to win a World Series start. By Mike Fitzpatrick THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON – There’s more than one way to rough up the Rockies. “This was the Pap-ajima show tonight,” Schilling said. “That was just phenomenal to watch.” The Series shifts to spacious Coors Field for Game 3 on Saturday night, when rookie Daisuke Matsuzaka pitches for Boston against Josh Fogg. “Our crowd is probably looking forward to this as much as anything in a long time,” Manager Clint Hurdle said. “We could use the support.” With no designated hitter allowed, the Red Sox must decide whether to play hobbling slugger David Ortiz at first base or bench his bat. If they keep getting this kind of pitching, it might not matter. “We’re going to make a series out of this,” Rockies rookie shortstop Troy Tulowitzki said. One night after Josh Beckett blazed through the Rockies with 97-mph fastballs in a 13-1 rout, Schilling shut them down with savvy and splitters. Nearly automatic in October, he improved to 11-2 with a 2.23 ERA in 19 postseason starts and tipped his cap to the pulsing crowd as he walked off the mound – perhaps for the final time in a Red Sox uniform. His fastball hovering around 87 mph, Schilling held punchless Colorado in check for 51/3 innings and became the second 40-year-old starter to win a World Series game. Detroit’s Kenny Rogers did it last year. Coming off eight days of rest, the wide-eyed Rockies looked awfully rusty while getting blitzed in the opener. They hardly resembled the team that had won 10 straight and 21 of 22 to earn the first pennant in its 15-year history. Colorado came to play in Game 2. But Boston’s pitchers were too much for an offense that really hasn’t hit all month. The Rockies’ incredible charge to the World Series masked this fact: they came into Thursday batting only .235 in the postseason. “Tonight we played better, we pitched better. We just didn’t get the big hit,” Colorado’s Garrett Atkins said. Okajima entered with two on in the sixth and Boston leading, 2-1. He retired Atkins on a grounder and struck out Brad Hawpe to squash the threat. There was more to come. The rookie left-hander from Japan fanned three straight before he was pulled for Papelbon with two outs in the eighth. “His command was spectacular, and that set up the whole game,” Boston manager Terry Francona said of Okajima. Matt Holliday spun Papelbon off his feet with a shot up the middle for his fourth hit. But the closer got even when he left the NLCS MVP sprawled in the dirt at first base with his first career pickoff. “They gave me the (sign) from the dugout,” Papelbon said. “I kind of just held the ball for a second, got relaxed and did a nice easy pick over there. I don’t know if he was going or what.” Papelbon finished up in the ninth, securing Schilling’s third win in four starts this postseason and his second save. He and Okajima have combined for 171/3 scoreless innings in October. “It has to change for us. We have to hit better,” Atkins said. “Holliday had a good night, but that was about it.” With two outs in the fifth, Ortiz walked and Manny Ramirez singled before Lowell pulled a 2-1 pitch from losing pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez down the left-field line for a 2-1 Red Sox lead. Boston loaded the bases, but Matt Herges retired Jason Varitek on a fly ball to end the inning. The Red Sox won their previous four games by a combined score of 43-6 and became the first team in postseason history to put up double-digit run totals in three straight. But with a bright autumn moon hanging high behind the right-field grandstand, Jimenez seemed to have the Red Sox spooked early on. A hesitation in his windup, cap tilted slightly to the side, the 23-year-old rookie held Boston hitless for three innings with an array of 96-mph fastballs and sharp sliders. He stayed poised, too, calmly taking time to gather himself as Boston’s big boppers stepped in. Jimenez walked two in the third and Ortiz took a shot at Pesky’s Pole, barely missing a three-run homer on a drive that curled just foul. Tied up on a tough slider, Ortiz later fanned for the third out. But the patient Red Sox started to wear down Jimenez, laying off balls and driving his pitch count up. Soon, they broke through. Lowell walked with one out in the fourth and J.D. Drew singled to right for Boston’s first hit. Lowell aggressively turned for third and, with a headfirst slide, beat a long throw from strong-armed Hawpe that was just off line. Varitek’s sacrifice fly tied it at 1. Schilling settled in after allowing a run in the first. Twenty days shy of his 41st birthday, he got an inning-ending double play in the second and struck out two in the third. He put the leadoff batter on in the next two innings, but pitched out of trouble.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Then October ace Curt Schilling and a stingy bullpen shut down Colorado in Game 2. Relying more on guile than pure gas, Schilling pitched Boston to a 2-1 victory Thursday night and a 2-0 lead in the World Series over the suddenly stagnant Rockies. “I’m actually ecstatic with the way we’re playing,” Boston third baseman Mike Lowell said. “We’re on the verge of winning a World Series.” Lowell hit a tiebreaking double in the fifth and the Red Sox got 32/3 innings of shutout relief from Hideki Okajima and Jonathan Papelbon to win their sixth straight Series game, including a sweep of St. Louis in 2004. That victory ended an 86-year title drought and set off a wild winter of celebrations all over New England. Two more wins this year and the party’s on again. last_img read more

Congress stuck on how to fix AMT problem

first_imgDemocrats say the maneuvering by McConnell and his allies leaves them wondering if Republicans truly want to enact relief this year for the tax, which was established almost 40 years ago to prevent very wealthy Americans with multiple tax breaks from escaping taxes altogether. And party leaders say the Republican position that the tax should be simply set aside without a corresponding replacement of revenue is fiscally and philosophically irresponsible. “Not only do I think that it is an intellectually bankrupt policy,” said Rep. Steny H. Hoyer, D-Md., the majority leader, “I think it is an immoral policy.” The brinksmanship has the IRS in a bind. In recent years, Congress had agreed by this time to a one-year solution to prevent the tax from ensnaring more and more Americans. But with matters unresolved just weeks before year-end filing begins in earnest, Treasury officials are warning that refunds could be delayed and early filers could be forced to submit amended returns to account for any changes. The central problem is reprogramming IRS computers. The agency’s protocol calls for seven weeks to analyze changes in tax law, write the software code and test it, as well as notify all the tax professionals, vendors and others affected. Officials fear that a rush to make the changes in less time could result in an error being made. WASHINGTON – Congressional Democrats, Republicans and President Bush are finally in full agreement on something: All proclaim that middle-class taxpayers should be spared a surprise tax hit next year, courtesy of the Alternative Minimum Tax. Unfortunately, their inability to agree on exactly how to suspend that tax is threatening to throw filing season into chaos and cost millions of Americans more in income taxes while fueling a political blame game over just who is responsible. The dispute goes to the heart of a Democratic pledge to pay for any tax cuts or offset new spending rather than add to the federal deficit. In a preview of tax showdowns to come, the fight pits the Democratic stance against a Republican refusal to raise taxes on one group to cut taxes on another or to offset the $50 billion cost of limiting the reach of the AMT since, the Republicans argue, it was not meant to collect so much revenue in the first place. “The effort to `pay for’ the AMT is highly offensive to members of my side of the aisle,” said Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, who has balked at Democratic proposals to force a series of votes on competing options for circumventing the looming problem. The deputy IRS commissioner, Richard Spires, warned that the computer work would cause a significant backlog in processing returns, in addition to adding to confusion for the taxpayer. “There are a lot of people that file early and a lot of people that rely on getting those refund checks in that early-February time frame,” Spires said in an interview. “If we’re not able to process those returns for them, we believe it will have a significant impact on them.” A smooth start to the 2007 tax filing season is already endangered, according to lawmakers and IRS officials. Any delay beyond this week will push the agency right up against the start of its seasonal rush. A delay in congressional action until Christmas could stall an estimated 38 million tax returns – and slow the corresponding $87 billion in refunds. “We are already in the soup, and it is a question of how bad it is going to get,” said Sen. Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, the senior Republican on the Finance Committee, who urged a speedy resolution of the impasse. New 1040 and 1040A tax booklets and instructions have already been printed. But 12 related tax forms, including one for the AMT and 11 other tax credits, must be revised and put through a new printing cycle if Congress approves new legislation. The credits include those for education expenses, and child and dependent care expenses. In 2006, nearly 4 million individuals were subject to the alternative tax, including half of all taxpayers with incomes between $200,000 and $1 million, and 5 percent of taxpayers with incomes between $100,000 and $200,000. Without any change, the AMT is expected to hit as many as 23 million new taxpayers at an average cost of $2,000, reaching people with incomes as low as $30,000 to $50,000, depending on circumstances. The Senate is scheduled to vote Thursday on whether to move forward on a House-passed plan that would freeze the tax and replace the lost revenue by ending tax breaks for private equity funds, hedge funds and other partnerships. But Republicans oppose that approach, making it unlikely Democrats will round up the necessary 60 votes. Leaders of both parties remain confident they will solve the riddle before the end of the year, particularly because lawmakers do not want to face voters next year after socking them with an unexpected tax. But Hoyer and some other House Democrats say they will never vote for a fix that is not paid for, and many Republicans say they will not vote for one that is. Unless someone relents, Grassley warned, tax time will be more trying than usual. “The old joke is that you better make certain that the light at the end of the tunnel isn’t a train coming at you,” he said. “Unfortunately, the joke is on the American people when it comes to the upcoming tax filing season. Because of the failure of the Congress to act, the taxpayers are going to feel like they have been hit by a freight train come April 15.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Hosts of 2026 World Cup to be decided in May 2020

first_img1 FIFA World Cup: The decision for 2026 has been put back The hosts of the 2026 World Cup will be decided in May 2020, three years later than originally scheduled because of the corruption scandals that have engulfed FIFA.In an attempt to avoid the recriminations that dogged the 2010 decision to give the 2018 World Cup to Russia and 2022 tournament to Qatar, world football’s governing body will try a four-phase approach for 2026.This will effectively be a year of consultation and then three years of “bid preparation” and evaluation, but a decision on whether to leave the tournament at 32 teams will be made in October 2016.The bidding process was the headline announcement from the first two-day meeting of the new FIFA Council – the successor body to the ExCo – in Mexico City.The consultation phase of the process will run until May 2017 and will look at four main areas: human rights and environmental protection, the ability to exclude bids that do not meet technical requirements, a review of stance on joint bids and whether to increase the World Cup to 40 teams.A decision on the latter, however, is expected by this October, with Europe’s leading clubs already making their displeasure at the idea of expansion clear.Also settled in October will be which confederations can put bids forward, with the current rules only excluding the Asian Football Confederation because Qatar will have hosted the previous World Cup.After the consultation phase, there will be an “enhanced phase for bid preparation” between June 2017 and December 2018, before bid evaluation between January 2019 and February 2020 culminating in the May vote.With bids likely to come from CONCACAF nations Canada, Mexico and the US – perhaps in a combination of two or even three of those nations – as well as interest from Australia and New Zealand, Turkey and Kazakhstan, Morocco and perhaps even England, FIFA will not be short of suitors.But new FIFA president Gianni Infantino knows the organisation cannot afford another decade of the kind of scrutiny that the decision to go to Qatar has brought.Last month, Harvard human rights expert Professor John Ruggie wrote a damning report for FIFA about its failure to make human rights a priority in its decision-making or exert more pressure for change on hosts.Qatar’s slow progress in reforming how it treats and uses migrant workers has reflected very poorly on FIFA.last_img read more

GIPSA rule delayed again

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It was recently announced that the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) is delaying the effective date of its interim final rule an additional six months to Oct. 19, 2017.This was viewed as a positive step in the right direction according to many livestock groups.“This is another step toward common sense and away from counterproductive government intrusion in the free market,” said Craig Uden, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) president. “That said, while a delay is welcome, ultimately this rule should be killed and American cattle producers should be free to market our beef without the threat of government-sanctioned frivolous lawsuits.”Two proposed rules and one interim final rule came out on Dec. 20, 2016, one month before the end of the Obama Administration. The interim final rule regarding the scope of the Packers and Stockyards Act and the proposed rule regarding undue preference and unjust treatment have a direct negative impact on the cattle industry.Current systems that allow producers to market their cattle as they see fit reward them for producing the higher-quality beef that consumers demand. Under the interim final rule, USDA or a producer no longer needs to prove true economic harm. Instead, one only needs to say that he or she was treated “unfairly” to file a damaging lawsuit that could discourage cattlemen from continuing to invest in improving the quality of beef being produced.“Trial lawyers are salivating at the prospect of this rule becoming the law of the land,” Uden said. “If this rule isn’t killed once and for all, cattle producers will lose nearly all incentive to invest in the production of higher-quality beef. That would mean less revenue for producers and lower quality for consumers. That’s a lose-lose proposition and exactly why the rule needs to not only be delayed — it needs to be killed outright.”The delay will allow for more time to comment on the issue, which is a positive thing, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation.“It is clear that a one-size-fits-all approach to the Agriculture Department’s Farmer Fair Practices Rules does not work across the board for all livestock sectors. The announced delay in the rules’ effective date until October will give farmers and ranchers additional time to comment on this important issue,” said Zippy Duvall, American Farm Bureau Federation president. “We support preserving the contract and marketing arrangements that are working for the beef and pork sectors, and we will reinforce that point during the comment period. There is still vast room for improvement, however, in efforts to ensure a level playing field for poultry farmers. We will continue to emphasize the need to seek additional safeguards in the poultry sector to better protect individual farmers from discriminatory treatment, without disrupting the business practices that are working in the beef and pork sectors.”last_img read more
