Youth in Action for Progress Celebrates First Anniversary

first_imgThe Youth in Action for Progress (YAP) of Chicken Soup factory is celebrating one year of service to the MTA community.In their first year of operation, YAP says it has provided dozens of youth in their community with counseling, education and skills. They have delivered these services through innovative debates, group workshops, community events and sponsorship assistance. YAP’s president and CEO, Tanneh Togba, says their interest in forming such a youth group came after seeing youths in her community being ruined due to drug abuse and other illegal activities. “Youth coming up by themselves run helter-skelter doing their own thing. Most of them smoke, drink, gamble and do a lot of things that are very dangerous to themselves. Some youths in my community are very bad. We call on youths who have not yet joined them to help transform them and get their interest away from wanting to do bad to do good. That’s why we founded this organization,” she added.“We are incredibly proud of YAP,” said Tanneh.Joseph Togba, YAP’s sports director added, “Please join us as we celebrate the successes of the past year and renew our pledge to continue YAP’s quality programs for our youths,” he added.Meanwhile, YAP has been sponsored through the year and looks forward to adding more members ranging from ages 18 to 29 to their group. “We counsel troubled youths to help transform their lives because you can’t talk to someone just once. It’s a continual process. Today, we have some in our midst who have changed from those bad habits and want to give back to our society,” he further stated. For now, YAP urges youths to accept that the future leaders of tomorrow in our society depend on them.“Looking at our country now and how hard it is, we advise youths to be rational and see reason to put education first to make a better and successful tomorrow. This society is looking at us to make a change for this nation tomorrow,” Tanneh added.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Check out Balotelli’s shock Liverpool shirt swap in Real Madrid defeat

first_imgThe visit of Real Madrid in the Champions League and a big European night was finally meant to be the time Mario Balotelli turned in a huge performance for Liverpool.But instead the sulky Italian produced another listless display in the 3-0 defeat and was nowhere to be seen after half-time as Adam Lallana took his place to leave the Reds effectively playing with no strikers.With Liverpool already trailing 3-0 it was a damning verdict on the 24-year-old’s performance, but could there have been another reason for Balotelli’s removal?Keen eyes and cameras picked up the Italian swapping shirts at half-time with Madrid defender Pepe (see below) as he further failed to endear himself to Kopites.Liverpool fans, will Balotelli ever be a success at Anfield?

Elhouni boosts Esperance hopes of CAF CL hat-trick

first_imgGroup D leaders Esperance are seeking an unprecedented third straight Champions League title and will enjoy home advantage against pointless V Club of the Democratic Republic of Congo.AFP Sport previews the eight-match schedule spanning Friday and Saturday with Esperance, fellow Tunisian team Etoile Sahel and TP Mazembe of DR Congo defending perfect group records.Group APrimeiro Agosto of Angola must contain Jackson Muleka in Luanda if they hope to end the two-match winning run of five-time African champions Mazembe.Muleka scored twice in a 3-0 home triumph over Zamalek of Egypt, also five-time winners of the competition, and repeated the feat as Mazembe edged Zesco United 2-1 in Zambia.Winning away to 2018 semi-finalists Primeiro, who have only one point, would confirm Mazembe as favourites to win the group as they chase a first Champions League title since 2015.The last Mazembe success was masterminded by French coach Patrice Carteron, now in charge of second-place Zamalek, who face Zesco in Zambian mining hub Ndola.Group BAlgerian Karim Aribi hopes to increase his chart-topping nine-goal tally in the Champions League this season when Etoile Sahel host Al Hilal of Sudan near Tunis.Aribi scored four goals in a qualifier and has at least four more matches to try and overtake Nigerian Stephen Worgu, who netted a record 13 times in the 2008 season.Etoile, the only club to lift all five past and present CAF trophies, edged record eight-time Champions League winners Al Ahly of Egypt 1-0, then outclassed Platinum 3-0 in Zimbabwe.Ahly recovered from the loss in Tunis to beat Al Hilal more decisively than the 2-1 score suggests and are expected to collect maximum points against pointless Platinum in Cairo.Group CMamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes the South African club can defeat hosts USM Alger of Algeria despite a disruptive build-up to the match in Blida near Algiers.Limited travel options meant the Pretoria outfit left Johannesburg Monday and flew via Paris to the north African nation, where they trained on Christmas Day.“I believe we have more chance of defeating USM than Wydad Casablanca,” said 2016 Champions League-winning coach Mosimane, referring to a 0-0 draw in Morocco this month.But if Sundowns lose, they could surrender top place if twice champions Wydad exploit home advantage and beat struggling Petro Luanda of Angola.Group DEsperance have recovered from a poor start to their challenge for a third consecutive title with wins over Raja Casablanca and JS Kabylie taking them to the top of the standings.The victories over the Moroccan and Algerian clubs came after the ‘Blood and Gold’ battled to overcome minnows Elect-Sport of Chad in a qualifier.Apart from Elhouni, Tunisian international Anice Badri has been impressive, scoring twice against Al Sadd in Doha.With V Club virtually out of contention already, the clash of Raja and Kabylie in Casablanca assumes added importance as both former champions eye a top-two finish and a last-eight spot.0Shares0000(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Esperance forward Hamdou Elhouni celebrates completing a hat-trick against Al Sadd of Qatar last week in the Club World Cup © AFP / KARIM JAAFARJOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Dec 26 – Hamdou Elhouni-inspired Esperance of Tunisia want to carry on where they left off in the Club World Cup when the CAF Champions League resumes Friday with three matchday three fixtures.Libyan Elhouni scored a hat-trick in a 6-2 rout of Al Sadd from host nation Qatar last week as his side finished fifth in the annual competition, which Liverpool won.last_img read more

Aston Villa financial turmoil close to end as owner looks set to sell

first_img moving on Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star With £6million a month needed just to keep the club afloat, Villa’s Championship play-off final defeat to Fulham appears to be the final straw for Xia, missing out on a rumoured £40-50m with the 1-0 loss.The Birmingham Mail report that Xia has offers from two interested parties and rejected an offer for a 51 per cent stake in the club from a European bidder on Tuesday.The rejected bid, of around £40m, would have met Xia’s requirements but he may be holding out for an outright purchase to recoup most of the £85m he paid Randy Lerner to buy the club in 2016.A third party, said to be American, were reportedly shown around Villa Park this week as they also consider making a bid.

Artifacts discovered in survey

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Archaeologists found two areas that contain significant artifacts. The lower site will be preserved in perpetuity, and artifacts are being collected from the upper site, a terrace above the riverbed. The survey area comprises fewer than 10 acres of the 695-acre site. Adamick said the items will be given to the Santa Clarita Historical Society. Senior planner Jeff Hogan, who is overseeing the project for the city, said he had not yet been advised of the find, but he said it was not a surprise. The approximate five-week survey process has been under way for two weeks. Along with the archaeologist, tribal monitors from three American Indian groups are overseeing the survey process. Monitors help identify historically significant areas and protect discoveries from harm. They represent tribal interests and serve as liaisons among tribes, the city and the developers. The Tatavium inhabited the Santa Clarita Valley hundreds, and possibly thousands, of years ago. Some groups lived in the area year-round. They hunted small animals and gathered yucca, acorns and berries. Santa Clarita City Council members approved the Riverpark project, but a cadre of environmental groups that say officials gave short shrift to air quality and floodplain issues filed a lawsuit against the project in Los Angeles Superior Court. SANTA CLARITA – An archaeologist hired by developer Newhall Land to survey the Riverpark site has found artifacts left by American Indians who once lived in what is now the center of town. Grinding stones and arrowhead fragments that likely were used by members of the Tatavium tribe hundreds of years ago were found adjacent to where the extension of Newhall Ranch Road will be built, said Carol Maglione, assistant vice president for community programs for The Newhall Land and Farming Company. “We had anticipated this was an area that had potential for (artifacts) before the (environmental report) was released to the public, before the public hearings,” said Glen Adamick, vice president of forward planning and entitlements for the developer. The 1,089-home Riverpark development is planned on the property at the eastern end of Newhall Ranch Road, north of the Santa Clara River. last_img read more

23 suspects held in collision scam

first_img No one was seriously injured in the collisions, but one victim had to close his business after his company truck was totaled in a staged accident, Garamendi said. The other suspects arrested in the case were primarily people living in the United States illegally, Garamendi said. In 1996, a family of three burned to death on the Long Beach Freeway when their station wagon was crushed between two big-rigs and exploded. Two men were sentenced to 11 years in prison after admitting they staged the accident as part of an insurance scam. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Twenty-three people have been arrested on suspicion of participating in an insurance fraud ring that staged more than 60 auto collisions on Southern California freeways and bilked about $3 million from insurers, officials said Wednesday. A seven-month investigation led to the arrest of Huntington Park lawyer Bernard Laufer, 52, as the alleged ringleader, said state Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi. Laufer, taken into custody Tuesday, faces charges of insurance fraud, grand theft and conspiracy. The investigation continues and more arrests likely will be made, Garamendi said. The probe is looking into doctors and chiropractors who may have been involved in the scam. The California Department of Insurance in April received a tip that a Humberto Carlon, 22, of La Verne, was recruiting people to participate in staged collisions. Carlon was arrested early in the investigation and has been sentenced to two years in state prison for his involvement.

Laufer allegedly bought the cases from Carlon and filed the fraudulent claims against the victims’ insurance companies. The ring allegedly staged more than 60 collisions using a so-called “swoop and squat” technique, which involves braking suddenly to cause a rear-end collision. Carlon allegedly recruited friends and family into the ring and several suspects were enticed to join at a church Bible study group, officials said. People typically were paid a few hundred dollars to cause the accidents and report injuries, Garamendi said. The ring allegedly targeted SUVs and commercial trucks. last_img read more
