CDC Lawmaker Disrupts Court Hearing

first_imgA lawmaker of the main opposition party, Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), was thrown out of the Monrovia City Courtroom last Friday for arguing with the judge at the start of a pretrial hearing involving four partisans of the party.Solomon George, who is Montserrado County District #7 Representative, got into a heated exchange with Magistrate James Dudu, who had sent his party’s youth chair Jefferson Korjee to jail, on Wednesday, November 5.The confrontation took place when Rep. George entered the courtroom as Magistrate Dudu was presiding over the case of Mulbah Morlu and two other CDC members.Without regard for the hearing taking place, Rep. George called out to Morlu, “My general in the struggle, this is truly a CDC general.”His action was met with a swift response from Magistrate Dudu: “Who are you? Don’t you know that we are in session? Who do you think you are?”The Magistrate then warned the CDC lawyer that he would be thrown out of the courtroom by officers if he continued to misbehave.  Later, Magistrate Dudu advised Rep. George to sit down or politely leave the courtroom.Rep. George was however forced to leave the courtroom. As he was led outside, he made these threatening statements: “I want you to remember that there is a time and season for everything. This is your time, but one day our time will come and you people will see what we will do with you.”The altercation took place at the start of a hearing that was supposed to focus largely on lawyers securing a criminal appearance bond for Morlu and other co-defendants.Korjee, Morlu and the co-defendants were charged with aggravated assault and kidnapping and sent to jail when their lawyers and fellow CDC partisans failed to raise the bond in time for their release. They were accused of torturing one Gbeh Salinto Montgomery, believed to be one of the youth executives of the party.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

I bought this because i’ve been thinking about cutting my bangs for a while but i wasn’t sure how i was going to look, and this clip bangs worked like a charm, now that i see how they look on me i’m definitely gonna go for the real bangs lol. Although it’s not real hair and shines in the light, no one can tell whether it’s real or not if wearing at night. I was quite surprised with the good quality and even ordered the full length fringe (9 inches) and another blond one for my mum. Very recommend if you just want a a quick change in your style. Ordered for my 12 year old daughter who cannot decide whether or not to get her fringe cut back in. Great fun and could save some heartache. Really effective product, bit in the shiny side but a fun hair accessory. Matches my hair and sits wonderfully. Really good looks real but one of the clips was broke.

Also, the join is quite obvious but i hide it with headbands and it looks perfectly fine. I’ve been receiving compliments all day and i might wear this as an everyday thing rather than committing to a permanent fringe. It feels and looks quite synthetic but no one has noticed – those who i tell its fake have said its obvious if you’re looking out for it. It was a lot darker than i thought but it sits well in my own hair. Good product and fits well with the colour of my natural hair.

Quick Tip: Super Simple Audio Setup

first_imgGoing out to shoot on your own? Need to travel light? The following audio setup is perfect for one-man-band video production.In the following quick tip video, one of our favorite photo/video content creators, Knoptop, shares his trick for getting clear sounding audio when shooting on his own. For a dramatic improvement over audio simply captured ‘in camera’, try using an external recorder with a lavalier mic. On-board camera mics are typically pretty low quality and pick up unfocused sound (lots of ambient noise).Knoptop’s recipe for success is a Zoom H1 recorder (an industry favorite) and an Azden lavalier microphone. Check out the video tutorial below to see how he uses this setup for his video shoots – and a few other tricks for better sounding success.  Thanks for sharing, Knoptop!last_img read more

Grand slam-seeking Beermen ‘have all the tools’

first_imgPBA IMAGESYeng Guiao and his NLEX Road Warriors have been at the bottom of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup totem pole right from the start.With a nine-game losing streak in the import-spiced conference and a 13-game spell dating back to the Philippine Cup, they know what it feels like looking at everything from below.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Palace: Duterte to hear out security execs on alleged China control of NGCP Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students PLAY LIST 01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes BREAKING: Cop killed, 11 hurt in Misamis Oriental grenade blast Bacolod’s field of dreams Pagasa: Storm intensifies as it nears PAR BREAKING: Cop killed, 11 hurt in Misamis Oriental grenade blast BSP survey: PH banks see bright horizon amid dark global recession clouds Every 18 seconds someone is diagnosed with HIV Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ MOST READ Cayetano dares Lacson, Drilon to take lie-detector test: Wala akong kinita sa SEA Games But the mercurial champion coach has an idea how the skirmishes at the top will end.“I think it’s San Miguel Beer,” says Guiao, whose squad notched its first win in the tournament on Wednesday night. “They have the tools and the experience. They (Beermen) are a solid contender.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingThe only thing that Guiao doesn’t have a quick answer to? Who would likely be the Beermen’s foes in the Finals.“Every team has to prepare itself in stopping San Miguel,” Guiao says, noting that the Beermen look invincible in their quest for the second jewel of an anticipated Triple Crown sweep. “They would have to know how to beat San Miguel.” The Beermen don’t actually have the best record as of this writing. Star leads the pack with an 8-2 record but the Hotshots are not yet sure of nailing one of the two twice-to-beat privileges in the first round of the playoffs.That is because San Miguel defeated Star in the eliminations. And with Barangay Ginebra also in the running for a top-two finish, the Hotshots could ultimately be denied the bonus.“I am seeding San Miguel in the Finals,” Guiao says. “What we want to know is who the Beermen would be playing, unless something drastic happens to them. But with the way they are playing, their confidence is truly high.”There’s no doubt that the firebrand mentor envies the fact that his Road Warriors won’t be among the eight teams that will continue playing past this round. He terribly wants another shot at the Beermen with the revamped nucleus that he now has.The former Pampanga representative says that Rain or Shine—which he guided to the championship of this tournament last season with the lowest-scoring import to ever win a title in the PBA—has suddenly looked good with the arrival of import Duke Crews.ADVERTISEMENT If Guiao is proven right, that would make for a great box-office draw for a tournament that needs one.And that would definitely make for a perfect footnote to the Beermen’s quest for the Grand Slam.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES “I don’t discount upsets,” Guiao explains. “Rain or Shine is picking up again; they just played a great game (in beating Ginebra). The other finalist will be a toss-up among Ginebra, Meralco and Star.”Blessed with the finest local crew in the league, San Miguel strengthened its tag as the favorite here with the improved play of Charles Rhodes, who came over early minus the fanfare but has turned out to be a solid Best Import candidate, if not the overwhelming pick at this time.Rhodes plays both ends well and has shown the attitude that complements the play of the local Beermen, as well as the chemistry the team needs to go deep in the playoffs.San Miguel was also the title favorite of the Commissioner’s Cup last season, only for import Tyler Wilkerson to blow his top during the most crucial phase of the playoffs and cause a ruckus the Beermen weren’t able to recover from.Coach Leo Austria believes that he won’t have a problem of that sort with Rhodes. “He’s very coachable,” he said in a recent interview.And that’s a crucial aspect that makes San Miguel even more dangerous.Guiao believes that the lack of championship experience of the Meralco and Star rosters could ultimately tell on the Bolts and the Hotshots. But he concedes that both are capable of pulling out an upset.Pressed as to which team could ultimately scuttle the talented Beermen in a championship series, the firebrand Guiao, uncharacteristically, searched for an answer.“Someone with a chance [of beating San Miguel]?” Guiao repeats the question, obviously considering a judicious reply.“Ginebra, because they have the size and the experience,” he says. “In terms of experience and manpower, I really think it’s Ginebra.”last_img read more
