first_imgMadam Christiana G. Burrowes, mother of the late Quincy B – Advertisement – — Late Quincy B’s wother warnsThe mother of late Afro-pop singer Quincy B has condemned individuals who organized concerts in her son’s name to commemorate the second anniversary of his death without the family approval.Christiana G. Burrowes, mother of the late singer, said that she is concerned about the manner and form people when about organizing several concerts without informing the family about it or seeking their approval.Madam Burrowes noted added that the family strongly condemned and warned people from using her late son’s name for their personal interest.The late pop star’s mother added: Let me make this unequivocally clear, next time, legal action will be taken against anyone caught doing so. We are not against people organizing concerts to commemorate my son’s death, but it should be done in the legal and proper way.“All we want from the organizers of these concerts is to show some respect to the family by seeking the approval to organize the concert.”Madam Burrowes made these statements five days after the family organized a memorial concert at the famous Sports Commission to raise funds for the establishment of a foundation in the late singer’s name.The late Quincy B died on March 3, 2017, in a tragic motor accident on his way from an impromptu performance at Anglers Bar and Restaurant in Monrovia.The late singer entered the music industry at the age of 19, with the single “Dream,” and went on to become the youngest artist in Liberia’s music history to become an official brand ambassador for a major telecommunications company, Lonestar Cell MTN.According to the Liberia National Police (LNP) report, Quincy B died as the result of excessive speeding and reckless driving, which resulted in his car somersaulting up to 52 feet into the air.The memorial concert, which took at the famous Sports Commission in central Monrovia, brought together hundreds of fans and artists to celebrate the late singer’s life. The concert showcased performances from the likes of veteran rapper Scientific, who brought Quincy B to prominence, as well as JB, Christoph, Ericgeso and Takun J.“We were able to raise some considerable amount in cash, and pledges which we are now using towards the establishment of the foundation. Currently, we are putting the necessary paper works together for the establishment of the foundation for registration before we can start operation,” Madam Burrowes added.The Quincy B foundation in question will focus on the development of youth musical talent and skills and is expected to be supported by friends and family.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgWest Ham are poised to make a move for former Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov.Reports in Bulgaria suggest the talented forward has already travelled to London to discuss terms of a free transfer to the east London club.Sam Allardyce has already brought in Enner Valencia, Mauro Zarate and Diafra Sakho as he looks to solve the goalscoring problems in his team.But with club record signing Andy Carroll ruled out for four months with ankle ligament damage and Valencia still short of match fitness, the Hammers boss would welcome the chance to bring in another proven forward.Bojinov, 28, currently plays for Levski Sofia but will be allowed to leave for nothing, and sporting director Georgi Ivanov confirmed the player has been allowed to open talks over a move back to the Premier League.Ivanov, speaking on Bulgarian National Radio, said: “We had to let him go because we have an agreement.“I allowed him to travel to England because I am contractually required to do so. But he remains a Levski player until he signs with another team.” 1 Valeri Bojinov last_img read more


first_imgThe virtual world and the real business world merged today when over150 people from local small and medium sized businesses gathered in Letterkenny for a Boost with Facebook event.Facebook experts and like-minded business owners were in town for the event to give one to one training and advice on how to use Facebook’s tools to grow their business. Entrepreneurs participated in breakout sessions and talks which provided training on how to build effective online advertising strategies, create engaging ads for mobile and find new customers on Instagram.Helen Smyth, Head of Ireland, Global Business Group, Facebook. Photo Clive Wasson]As highlighted in a recent Seanad Report on Small and Medium Sized Businesses in Ireland (published in May 2019), the SME sector is vibrant and diverse, accounting for 99% of active enterprises and 65% of all employment in Ireland – in excess of 1 million people nationwide and over 75,000 in the North West alone. This shows the huge importance of SMEs to regional economies. The same report notes, however, that SMEs have not yet fully embraced digital technologies with just 30% of SMBs selling products and services online.

Through Facebook, small businesses now have access to affordable marketing tools to grow their business and strengthen their communities.

With over 7,400 followers on Facebook and Instagram, my followers engage with me on a daily basis, by commenting, liking, sharing posts and leaving positive reviews.

first_imgA man who almost blinded his young daughter when he threw a glass jug in a rage at his wife’s lover has escaped jail.Prince Asamoah leaves Letterkenny District Court.Prince Asamoah attacked his wife and her new partner when he entered her home in Letterkenny. The woman and her four daughters were left terrified after the attack in the house at 84 The Grange on June 5th last.Letterkenny District Court was told Asamoah arrived at the house and a huge argument started which saw the accused challenge his wife’s new lover to “settle this like a man.”Asamoah, 37, of 35 Holywell Woods, Swords, Dublin picked up a chair and then a set of pliers and tried to attack the man but he was stopped.He then threw a glass jug at him but he ducked and the jug smashed spraying his three year old daughter with glass.The little girl needed stiches to the wound and pictures of her horrific injuries were handed into the court.The court heard that the child has now made a good recovery and the scarring may not be to severe.Judge Paul Kelly previously said “The photos are horrifying. Hopefully they have healed up. And luckily it doesn’t appear to have damaged her eye.”He added “It’s a very serious incident and and it is extremely fortunate that his 3 year old daughter was not blinded in that eye. The photos we have look particularly horrific and we can only hope she makes a full recovery.”Defence solicitor Frank Dorrian said his client had harboured hopes of a reconciliation with his wife but that was not meant to be.He said he was very sorry and felt so guilty about hurting his daughter.He said however that he had now moved on and realised there was no hope of getting back with his wife.Judge Kelly said he accepts the incident happened out of a jealous rage which “sent him out of control.”He sentenced him to 60 hours community services in lieu of two months in prison for assault and a further 60 hours of community service also in lieu of two months in prison.Both sentences are to run concurrently and Judge Kelly also took another charge of assault into consideration.He also ordered Asamoah to pay €130 in compensation.MAN WHO ALMOST BLINDED DAUGHTER DURING FIGHT WITH WIFE’S LOVER ESCAPES JAIL was last modified: February 24th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:assaultblindedcourtdaughterletterkennyPrince Asamoahlast_img read more

first_imgComing Out: Young Donegal man Ayrton Kelly continues his column series with DonegalDaily.com giving an insight into his journey in the LGBTI+ community and life in Donegal.Read Ayrton’s first three posts here:– Growing up Gay in Donegal– ‘New Year, New Me’ was never so true– We have come a long way for LGBTI+ Equality. but we can still do better This week, Ayrton looks towards future of equality and the ‘National LGBTI+ Youth Strategy’.Minister Katherine ZapponeThe rural-urban divide in Ireland is as clear as day in Donegal – Ireland’s Forgotten County. This divide affects everyone and everything. Inequality is often exacerbated as a result of the chasm between rural counties and metropolitan areas. While Donegal is the Republic of Ireland’s fourth largest county by size and eighth largest by population. It is an incredible county and I loved growing up here but, if you’re LGBTI+ there is a serious lack of visibility, awareness and support that is available in the capital.One prime example is with regard to sexual health services. Letterkenny GUM (genitourinary medicine) or sexual health clinic runs once every Thursday evening from Letterkenny University Hospital. Conversely, in Dublin, St. James’ Hospital has a dedicated GUIDE  Clinic every day of the week while the GMHS (Gay Men’s Health Service) operates from Baggot Street Hospital four days of the week and offers tailored, specific medical care to gay men who are most at risk of contracting STIs and HIV (Department of Health, 2015). In terms of Youth Service provision, Donegal Youth Service is also based in Letterkenny as is BreakOUT. However, over the years BreakOUT has grown and has groups in Letterkenny, Ballybofey, Glenties and Moville and offers a safe and supportive place for young LGBTI+ people and their friends/allies in addition to information, training and one-to-one support, all of which I have availed of in my time. Conversely, Dublin has BeLonG To, TENI, the Outhouse and other specific supports not as readily available in the North West.A lack of public transport and socio-economic disadvantage will hinder a young LGBTI+ person’s ability to seek help and support in Donegal compared to their counterparts in the Greater Dublin Area who can hop on a Luas, Dublin Bus or DART at relatively low cost and high frequency.Donegal is quite a conservative county. We saw this during the recent Referendum to remove the Eighth Amendment (Article 40.3.3) of the Constitution of Ireland, and even before that in 2015 where – 50% of Donegal people said Yes to Equality compared to 70% in Dublin.And yet, I don’t think there is as much homophobia in Donegal or Ireland as there once was, but a lack of visibility in rural counties devoid young people of the opportunity to think about the impact of using words like ‘fag’, ‘tranny,’ or ‘gay’ in a derogatory sense. From experience, a lot of the time it is not malice, but ignorance and habit that words like these are used. Compared to the general youth population, young LGBTI+ people are twice as likely to self harm; three times more likely to attempt suicide and four times more likely to suffer from severe mental health issues (BeLonGTo & GLEN, 2016). Body image and eating disorders, substance use and abuse (drugs, alcohol and tobacco), cutting, homelessness, and STIs are some of many issues that are statistically more likely to affect the LGBTI+ population than the non-LGBTI+ population.It is true that every young person in Ireland has a tough time growing up. But evidence has shown that young LGBTI+ are disproportionately disadvantaged. The National Youth Strategy 2015-2020 and the Brighter Outcomes, Better Futures framework have tried and failed to deal with the nuanced needs of the young LGBTI+ people of Ireland and have not reacted effectively enough.‘Everyone benefits’ With the publishing of the National LGBTI+ Youth Strategy (DCYA, 2018) there are 59 specific actions that will aim to make Ireland a better, more equal place for all its young people.The strategy does not benefit young LGBTI+ people to the detriment of the non-LGBTI+ young people. If we have better sexual health services, better SPHE and RSE, more rigorous anti-bullying procedures, better access to Youth Services, more awareness around mental health, and better visibility of leaders that are LGBTI+ then everyone benefits. In order to achieve equality that we so desperately want and need here in the Republic of Ireland, we accept people for who they are; to be supportive and to ensure all young people feel valued.Ayrton Kelly is 20 years old and from Letterkenny, Co. Donegal. He is studying Business and French in UCD and before that attended St Eunan’s College. By working with Donegal Youth Service, UCD Students’ Union, Foróige, Youth Work Ireland, BeLonG To and the Department of Children and Youth Affairs has become interested in equality and social Justice. Most recently, he was on the Youth Advisory Group and Oversight Committee for the National LGBTI+ Youth Strategy.BreakOut is a project for young LGBTI people, LGBTI Allies and young people that believe in social justice aged 12-30, and is operated by Donegal Youth Service.  Currently there are groups meeting up regularly in Letterkenny, Ballybofey, Glenties and Moville offering information, training, one-to-one support and guaranteed craic.
