Bangladeshi Restaurant Opens in Ganta

first_imgThe first business center to be owned by a Bangladeshi in Ganta has opened in the city center, adding flavor to the restaurant and bar business in the commercially bustling city.The business center “Mama Wyn Bar and Restaurant” is open 24 hours and specializes in the preparation of the Asian dishes from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh as well as countries within the Indo – China basin.Ms. Sudu, the proprietor, told the Daily Observer that she was very happy to be the first Bangladeshi to open a business center in the commercial city of Ganta because, for five years of staying in Liberia, there she hasn’t encountered any difficulty with the people/citizens as well as the business community.“Not only Asian food, we prepare and sell in this restaurant, we also sell African dishes including GB, meat pepper soup, palm butter and all sorts of the African dishes you can think about,” she boasted.“Even though the business is not booming yet, due to its newness, we are satisfied and we know that one day it will boom,” she said.The Mama Wyn Bar and Restaurant is located around the Gbatu Quarter close to the main street. Several young Liberian girls and boys are employed as workers in the restaurant.Nimba has been the home to the Bangladeshi Peace Keeping contingent with the United Nations Mission in Liberia/UNMIL since 2004. Because of the Bangladeshi being friendly in their mission, they were involved in sharing food and inviting stakeholders to so banquets.Because of their hospitality, children nicknamed them, “Bangladesh chop, chop”. In spite of the UNMIL drawdown, the Bangladeshi contingent will be forever remembered in the Nimba for their impact on the county, which include the birth of Internet services in that part of the country. Many Bangladeshis from UNMIL have expressed willingness to come back and do business in Liberia. And while none have returned, the opening of this food center seems to have brought back some good memories from when the peacekeepers were around.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Carpenter who “found gun while digging yard” bailed

first_imgThirty-two-year-old Paul Bishop, who was slapped with a gun-possession charge in the Magistrates’ Courts earlier last month, was released on by Magistrate Fabayo Azore on Friday.Bishop, who plies his trade as a carpenter, was granted bail in the sum of $150,000.The charge against him stated that the Freeman Street, La Penitence resident had, on October 9, 2018, a .32 pistol in his possession without being the holder of a firearm licence. He had denied the charge when he made his first court appearance.However, facts presented by the prosecution revealed that on October 9, Police, acting on information, carried out a search on Bishop while he was in the Freeman Street, La Penitence area, and the unlicensed weapon was found on his person.According to reports, Bishop was on a pedal cycle when he was confronted by the lawmen, and confessed in an oral statement that he had found the revolver while he was “digging in the front yard”.Further, Police Prosecutor Richard Harris had objected to bail being granted on ground of the serious nature of the charge, but Bishop was nonetheless released on bail.last_img read more

Andrea Pirlo completes New York City move

first_img Italy midfield maestro Andrea Pirlo 1 Italian midfield maestro Andrea Pirlo has left Juventus to complete a move to Major League Soccer side New York City FC.The 36-year-old has long been linked with a move to the United States and it has now been confirmed by both clubs that he will join Spain’s all-time record goalscorer David Villa and former England midfielder Frank Lampard in the Big Apple.A statement from Juventus read: “Andrea Pirlo has announced that he will continue his career in the United States, bringing the curtain down on four extraordinary seasons with the Bianconeri.Pirlo, who had one year left on his contract with Juve, helped the Turin giants win the domestic double – for the first time since 1995 – and reach the Champions League final last season.The mercurial midfielder will be much missed by Juventus after helping the club return to the top table of football in Italy and Europe.“Despite his 164 appearances, 19 goals (15 of which were free-kicks) 35 assists and seven trophies, Pirlo is a player – a man – who could never be summed up with mere statistics.“Pirlo is silent charisma, the steadying hand in the middle of the park, the dummy that undoes the opposition defence. He’s that unexpected ball that splits the game wide open, the lofted pass that brings a team to its knees.“It has been an honour and a privilege to have shared these four fantastic seasons with Andrea and all associated with Juventus Football Club wish him the very best for the future.”Pirlo, who joined Juventus in 2011 after a decade playing for AC , bid an emotional farewell on Twitter, posting: “It’s difficult to transform emotions into words, especially when considering four very important years in my life.“I can only say an enormous thank you to those that have accompanied and supported me on this journey.“The Juventus club, with the president at the helm, without forgetting every single person that works at the club: my team-mates whom I’ve shared a lot of battles, many laughs and a few tears; all the fans that have followed me even at times when things weren’t going well… Thanks to all of you.“It wasn’t easy to decide, but the time has come to begin a new adventure. But I will never forget my link to these colours. Until the end, FORZA JUVENTUS.”Pirlo, who won six Serie A titles in total and two Champions League crowns with the Rossoneri, will join up with his new club on July 21 and will be available for selection immediately after that, the MLS franchise announced.He is expected to sign an 18-month contract with New York City.last_img read more

LUCKY DONEGAL MAN CRAIG GOES FROM US TV STRIP TO JOB WORKING FOR MILLIONAIRE!

first_imgA CO Donegal man who became a TV hit after appearing on a top-rated show in America has been lucky again – after landing a super new job with a millionaire!Craig Magee was minding his own business while on holiday in Hollywood in September when he accidentally walked onto the set of the Ellen Degeneres Show.The normally chatty host was left almost speechless when the Irish hunk Craig, 25, from Kirskstown, quickly whipped off his t-shirt. Now Craig has told Donegal Daily he got luck again just a few days later on the island of Fiji where he and girlfriend Jayne had stopped off on their way to New Zealand where he was hoping to get a job.“After I left the USA I had a stop over in Fiji for ten days. As I’d been traveling for around three weeks already I was starting to think about funds so I had to get in to my job seeking mode,” said Craig.“So while I was sitting in a bar in a Fiji resort I struck up a conversation with a middle aged couple and funny enough they happened to be from Auckland which was my next destination.“I proceeded to fight my corner in regards to the Ireland rugby team’s performance in the last world cup and tried to make him bite by saying how lucky the kiwis were to beat France but he just shrugged and laughed at me! Pretty justified!! “As conversation continued he asked me what my plans were for when I got to Auckland and I proceeded to tell him that I worked in construction and there it was, BINGO, he happened to be a building contractor with a big project starting the day I was to arrive.“So I spent a few days with them and he offered me work which I gladly accepted.. Job seeking the Irish way is always best! Who needs stress of CVs when gods gave us the gift of the gab!!”Craig got settled in digs last weekend.“I started work on the Monday morning, on a 3 million dollar mansion in the Orakai basin outside the city. Its almost like the Hollywood of Auckland,” said the Donegal man.He says Auckland is a diverse and very clean city. “People are very friendly and helpful although its sometimes is hard to believe you are in New Zealand with such a big Asian community,” said Craig.“It’s been a pretty vibrant atmosphere recently with the arrival of all the triathlon athletes from all the different countries. I’ve tried my best to follow and cheer all the Irish athletes home and I took great pride in seeing Constadine Dohertys’ great performance in the junior boys triathlon. Auckland’s got a massive running culture with cycling being very popular as well. Rugby, of course always gets priority however… So all in all, if you like your exercise, Auckland’s for you,” he said.“I spend most of my spare time getting some photographs and visiting the local islands where the scenery is phenomenal. Restaurants and bars are priced relatively similar to home and seafood is brilliant.“Work in NZ seems to be pretty easy to come by from speaking to others. On entering the workforce all you need to apply for is your IRD number which is your tax number, set up a bank account (which is very straight forward) and the will to work with a smile on your face.Moving to Christchurch is also on my to do list. As everybody knows the earthquakes are a major talking point but I have been reassured that if you allow the quakes to stop you from going there for work I’d be missing out. “Speaking to a Galway man and his girlfriend last week he spoke of the Irish community their and how it reminded him of home. Of course, I asked why and he proceeded to tell me of the Gaelic football and the soccer teams the Irish boys were involved in there and also how the difficult times have pulled people together because they have to. ” Every man helps the next man,he said, then we move next door, that’s how it is. The money is good and you can have all the work you want”.LUCKY DONEGAL MAN CRAIG GOES FROM US TV STRIP TO JOB WORKING FOR MILLIONAIRE! was last modified: October 31st, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:LUCKY DONEGAL MAN CRAIG GOES FOR US TV STRIP TO JOB WORKING FOR MILLIONAIRE!last_img read more

It’s coming this way so I am urging people to be prepared and take all practical steps possible to keep safe. “Keep in touch with your local radio stations, news websites and social media for any updates – and charge phones in advance of the worst of the storm.“I’ve spoken to Minister for Defence Paul Kehoe this morning, Defence Forces personnel are on standby.

The most controversial moments in English football

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesWith the best time of year, football season, starting and going ahead, we thought we would compile a list of the most controversial moments in English League football. I guess only a handful of us will be able to remember all of them. 1) Derby County’s Penalty Spot FiascoDerby County’s old ground, The Baseball Ground (BBG), was renowned for being a horror to play on. Instead of the bright, green pitches of today, 1970s football was literally played on mud.The BBG in the seventies, then, was a literal warzone. Things reached a head when Derby County played Manchester City at home in 1977, which is a contender for the worst English pitch ever used to be used in an official game.The ground was so muddy that following a penalty decision, a groundskeeper had to run on the field to paint a new one on:Nowadays, as football has become more commercialised and professional, pitches are kept in a fit state thanks to line-marking businesses like BowCom. Even back then, however, to have a groundskeeper perform maintenance mid-game was unprecedented.2) Keegan’s “Love it” SpeechNewcastle and Manchester United’s title race in 1996 was gloriously entertaining, but then-manager Kevin Keegan’s post-match speech defined the future of Premier League discourse between managers: it was full of fire, passion and a total lack of respect.Back on April 29, 1996, Keegan’s side beat Leeds 1-0 in a tight game to go within three points of leaders Manchester United, with a game in hand and two left to play. Before the game, Ferguson implied that Newcastle was in their position as teams didn’t try against them, to which Keegan responded with the following:“I’ve kept really quiet but I’ll tell you something, he went down in my estimations when he said that. We have not resorted to that. You can tell him now, we’re still fighting for this title and he’s got to go to Middlesbrough and get something – and I’ll tell you, honestly, I will love it if we beat them. Love it. It really has got to me. I’ve voiced it live, not in front of the press or anywhere. I’m not even going to the press conference, but the battle is still on and Man United have not won this yet.”There have been more confrontational post-match interviews, but this set the tone for the Premier League.3) Alan Pardew Loses the PlotAlan Pardew isn’t remembered fondly for his personality and for good reason. The manager has always had a reputation for being a little thuggish, which he proved in 2014 after he headbutted a midfielder for an opposing team.Managing Newcastle at the time, Pardew, randomly, headbutted David Meyler as the midfielder took a throw-in. The manager left Newcastle that year in disgrace.4) Paolo Di Canio Loses the Plot, TooSadly, disrespect of referees is synonymous with football. The rocky relationship between player and referee has never been sound, but Paolo Di Canio’s assault of referee Paul Alcock in 1998 set the tone for the league’s officiating trends. The controversial striker has always been remembered more for his antics that his decent playing career, but even by his standards this was too far.Following a deserved red card, Di Canio reacted by pushing the referee over.The assault on the referee was certainly minor, but the crossing of that physical barrier was a symptom of football’s erosion of respect between officials and players.5)Eric Cantona’s Kung-Fu KickFor a player of Eric Cantona’s quality, it is saddening that he is remembered for such a violent outburst. The now-legendary reaction has gone down in football folklore. Cantona, in January 1995, performed a moment that shocked football and is likely the most famous case of common assault in the English legal system.Following a red card for lashing out at another player, Cantona, on his way to the tunnel, received a hurl of abuse from a fan in the crowd. Out of nowhere, Cantona reacted in what can only be described as a kung-fu kick, hitting the fan in the chest. A brawl ensued, with the player escorted down the tunnel.The player was given jail time for his assault, serving two weeks in prison. The moment set up the Premier League as not only a place for attractive football, but as an arena of controversy.
