2-Month-Old Baby Turns Into ‘Full Grown Man’

By on January 18, 2020

first_imgResidents of Foquelleh in Panta District in Bong County were said to have been in unbelievable shock when a two-month-old baby, identified by family members as Smith Freeman, Tuesday, September 23, morning grew into a full grown man and escaped into the bush with his mother’s lappa.According to the mother of the child, Lorpu Kollie, 16, on Tuesday she and the child were on their way to the farm when the child on her back tied in lappa spoke to her and told her to put him down.She told the Daily Observer that as they approached the crossroad, the child repeated his call on the mother to untie her lappa and put him down.   As soon as she put the baby down, she continued, the two-month-old boy instantaneously began to grow into a full grown man!Lorpu Kollie narrated that the child informed her that he (the child) was on his way back home since his grandmother, Lorpu Kollie’s mother, was in the constant practice of raining insult at him.  He even threatened bring incense and garlic into the home.“This was my first time seeing a two-month-old baby talking so clearly like a five year old child,” Lopu Kollie explained through a mobile phone interview with our reporter.She told the Daily Observer the baby who grew into man immediately took away her lappa and made his way with it into the bush.The 16-year-old mother intoned that she had earlier had dreams of her son where they both went into a town and entered a house without doors but they leaned on the house and found their way in as instructed by her son, Smith Freeman.She explained that in the dream, her son was the one serving guests with the food and her son emphatically warned her not to dare telling the dream to anyone.  But according to her, she revealed the dream to her mother, Gormah Kollie.Lorpu Kollie was swift to tell this newspaper that Smith Freeman did not have any scar or deformity on his body that could convince community dwellers that the baby was somehow belonging to the dark world.“The boy told me that he was going back home because my mother had threatened to bring incense into the house. He said the grandmother told him she had the power to drive away any witch craft,  Lorpu Kollie told this reporter.Speaking earlier to this newspaper, the father of the baby, Watson Freeman said since his girlfriend, Lorpu Kollie conceived, she complained of body and other related pains until she finally gave birth.Watson Freeman described the mysterious disappearance of his son as incredible and mind-blowing, saying he did not experience any apprehension about him being beyond being a normal human being.For his part, the grandfather of the baby, Jerome Kowan, said the unexplained vanishing of two-month-old Smith Freeman is the handiwork of the dark world.He maintained that the situation could stigmatize his daughter and drive away any man who may wish to take her as a future wife.Meanwhile, traditional leaders in the area have commenced a traditional investigation into the situation and advised people who made farms in the direction to which the baby escaped to stay away for a couple of days and observe.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Moving to the Finish-Line

By on

first_imgThe Ebola Virus Disease is gradually being contained in Liberia, but as is always the case, more robust efforts, endurance and high-level concentration are needed to get the country to the finish line in terms of being declared Ebola free.Everyone seems to be saying this but there is a lot to saying than doing. Liberians and foreign residents have been reminded on several occasions to not to let down their guard otherwise it could trigger a resurgence of the Ebola virus.It was against this background that an International Charity organization, Delivering Good Health Community Service (DGHCS) saw the necessity to intensify its provision of medical supplies and assorted items to institutions responding to the Ebola outbreak in Liberia.The founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of DGHCS, Nallie Brumskine Moore, is reminding Liberians that although the situation in the country is gradually improving, Ebola is still here and dangerously contagious and there is no need for complacency. She added, “Adequate resources and efforts must be urgently exerted to completely contain it”.Madam Moore spoke from the United States via telephone upon the arrival of the consignment in the Monrovia. The supplies were subsequently distributed to health centers, orphanages, and humanitarian intuitions. Madam Moore said the donations are intended to buttress government’s efforts in “this final phase” of the fight against the Ebola Virus Disease.“We acknowledged those who are playing vital roles at the frontline of the Ebola response”, Madam Brumskine Moore asserted, adding that “the needs of frontline workers and volunteers should be urgently addressed including adequate support and regular recognition of their efforts and commitment.The DGHCS CEO paid special tribute to the Donohue Family Foundation, Georgetown University Hospital, International Association for Human Values and Project Hope for their continuous support to the people of Liberia through DGHC.This is the DGHCS second large donation since the Ebola outbreak. The organization initially imported into the country a large consignment of medical supplies in March this year.The latest DGHCS donation initiative benefited several hospitals, clinics and humanitarian institutions such as the Liberian Red Cross which is heavily involved in the Ebola response and is responsible for managing the retrieval and disposal of Ebola.The country’s largest health facility in the capital, the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital that was abruptly shut down as a result of the Ebola outbreak was one of the key beneficiaries of the DGHCS donations. Other institutions include the Suehn Clinic in Bomi County, Al Halil clinic on Jamaica Road and the ‘Love a Child’ Orphanage on the Robertsfield Highway.The DGHCS country coordinator, Rev. Joseph Roberts, told the beneficiaries that the donation was part of the organization’s way of helping to strengthen the capacity of hospitals and community clinics to combat the Ebola epidemic.Rev. Roberts emphasized that community clinics and hospitals were hugely affected by the Ebola outbreak in March and it is important to continue to identify with them while the country is experiencing a decline in the Ebola virus disease.Rev. Roberts commended DGHCS founder Moore and her USA partners for their commitment to support the health sector of Liberia and the less fortunate.Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, the coordinator of Logistics at John F. Kennedy Memorial hospital, Abraham Attoh, and the founder of Love a Child Orphanage, Madam Rebecca Wreh, lauded the efforts of DGHCS.  Mr. Attoh and Madam Wreh in separate remarks recounted the lack of equipment as a critical challenge that had hindered the fight against Ebola during its first outbreak in March 2014.The Liberia National Red Cross Society Director of Disaster Management, Abdullai Perry also commended the efforts of the DHCS and its partners. He added that the donation would assist the Red Cross which is scaling up its activities covering Social Mobilization, Contact tracing, Psychosocial counseling, community home based protection, provision of survival kits, food distribution and safe and dignified burials in Montserrado County.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Locals hit by new phone scam

By on January 12, 2020

first_imgSeveral local residents have received calls from a person claiming to be from the “Window’s Centre” and that they have discovered problems with a computer the victim owns.  The fraudster then has the victim log onto the computer and walks them through several steps that allow the fraudster remote access to the computer.  RCMP believe the fraudster then installs a virus or obtains person information about the victim. The fraudster then asks for $100 to renew a warrant or for a new warranty as the problem was not covered.  They state if the fee isn’t paid, the computer will crash within 48 hours.  The fraudster suggested that payment could be made through cheque or money order. In one case the victim did hang up on the fraudster and then received a second call and the person said “when it crashes don’t call us.”- Advertisement – The Dawson Creek RCMP warn residents that if you receive an unsolicited call from a computer firm, be highly suspicious.  If someone asks for money or says that they have money for you and asks for personal information, don’t give them any information.

Dortmund collapse leaves Bayern on brink of seventh successive title

By on January 6, 2020

first_img0Shares0000Dortmund captain Manuel Akanji saw his side capitulate against Werder Bremen on Saturday © AFP / PATRIK STOLLARZBerlin, Germany, May 4 – Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre defended goalkeeper Roman Buerki after his second-half howler saw Dortmund throw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Werder Bremen and left Bayern Munich on the brink of a seventh successive Bundesliga title. “I am not going to talk about Roman. Whatever happens, he has had a fantastic season and has saved us a lot of points in the past,” Favre told Sky. Buerki’s error and a goal from Claudio Pizarro all but ended Dortmund’s title challenge and sealed a perfect afternoon for Bayern, after club stalwarts Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben earlier returned from injury to help them to a 3-1 victory over bottom club Hanover. Dortmund, who were nine points ahead of Bayern in December, must now make up a four-point deficit in the last two games of the season.“We have to win our last home game next week, that is our only hope,” said Favre. Christian Pulisic opened the scoring for Dortmund after just six minutes with a brilliant solo goal, before Paco Alcacer doubled the lead with a fizzing free-kick. With Dortmund in full control on 70 minutes, Buerki allowed Bremen back into the game when he let Kevin Moehwald’s tame shot through his legs, and former Bayern star Pizarro scored a shock equaliser moments later.“If we can help Bayern, why not?” a smiling Pizarro told Sky.Veteran Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben made a long-awaited return from injury against Hanover on Saturday © AFP / Christof STACHEIn Munich, Robben and Ribery, both of whom are set to leave Bayern at the end of the season, came off the bench to make their first appearance together in 2019.Ribery scored what may be his last ever goal at the Allianz Arena, while Robben, who had not played since November, told Sky that his cameo appearance was not the end of his Bayern journey. “I always said I didn’t want to come back just to wave to the fans and say goodbye. There are two games left and the German Cup final, so there is more to come,” he said.Hanover kept Bayern at bay for nearly half an hour before Robert Lewandowski headed the hosts ahead from close range and Leon Goretzka curled the second in off the post.The visitors hit back after half-time with a Jonathas penalty, the result of a highly controversial handball decision from VAR against Jerome Boateng. Ribery secured the win with a deflected shot six minutes from time.Bayern now need just one win from their last two games against top four sides RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt. – Nuremberg and Hanover hang on –Elsewhere, Borussia Moenchengladbach and Hoffenheim both stumbled in the race for the top four, as they shared the points in a 2-2 draw.Matthias Ginter cancelled out Pavel Kaderabek’s opener, before Nadiem Amiri restored the lead with a fine volley. Josip Drmic saved Gladbach’s Champions League hopes with a late equaliser.Wolfsburg also remain in the hunt for a top four place after goals from Felix Klaus and Marcel Tisserand saw them beat second-from-bottom Nuremberg 2-0.Both Nuremberg and Hanover were spared relegation for at least another week, however, as Hertha Berlin won 3-1 at home to Stuttgart, who remain in the relegation play-off place.Goals from Vedad Ibisevic, Ondrej Duda and Salomon Kalou sealed the win for Hertha, despite a late consolation header from Mario Gomez.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Foreclosures to hit U.S. economy hard

By on December 30, 2019

first_imgAn expected surge in home foreclosures will cause U.S. property values to sink by $223 billion, with the most severe effects in minority communities, a new report says.The report released Tuesday by the Center for Responsible Lending estimates that about one in three households will see their property values drop by $5,000 on average as mortgages made to borrowers with weak credit in 2005 and 2006 reset at higher interest rates, accelerating the pace of foreclosures.Property values and tax revenues will decline most sharply, the center said, in neighborhoods with many minority residents, who received a disproportionate share of such mortgages. The report’s authors asserted that foreclosures hurt surrounding properties, raising the risk of fire and vandalism.“These foreclosures are wiping out wealth that people often took a lifetime to build,” said Martin Eakes, the center’s chief executive. “Many families will never achieve homeownership again” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The Durham, N.C.-based center is pushing for legislation up for a House vote Thursday that would ban abusive lending practices, such as steering homeowners into refinanced mortgages that don’t provide any benefit.Advocacy groups say poor and minority borrowers who qualified for traditional loans were nevertheless steered into mortgages that reset to dramatically high levels after a short “teaser” period.These practices “succeeded in wrecking the futures of hundreds of thousands of homeowners and their families,” said Shanna Smith, executive director of the National Fair Housing Alliance.Experts project that between 1million and 2 million of those loans will wind up in foreclosure.The center’s property value analysis, and its estimate that 44.5 million homes will see property values decline, was based on academic research showing that a foreclosure lowers the price of neighboring properties by 0.9 percent on average. That effect was higher in poor neighborhoods, where prices dropped 1.4percent on average.last_img read more
