The Civil Law Court has placed a preliminary injunction against three local radio and television stations from broadcasting the 2014, FIFA World Cup currently being played in Brazil, in the South America.The block on Real TV, (Renaissance Communication Inc) SKY TV, (Sky Communication), CLAR TV (Royal Communication), and Love TV, (Sarafina Communication), was imposed following an appeal for “Declaratory Judgment” prayed for by the Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS).The ban that was imposed on June 30, according to the court, will remain in force pending the determination of the LBS’s appeal, on July 7.In the injunction, the court instructed its Sheriff (court officer) to enjoin and restrain the four media houses from further broadcasting the FIFA 2014, World Cup currently being staged and played in Brazil.It further instructed that the institutions were to appear before the court on July 7, to answer to the LBS’s declaratory judgment request.A Declaratory judgment is a binding judgment from a court defining the legal relationship between parties and their rights in the matter before the court.It does not provide for any enforcement, however. In other words, it states the court’s authoritative opinion regarding the exact nature of the legal matter without requiring the parties to do anything. In their complaint, the LBS alleged that it had been authorized by the FIFA as the only media institution in the country to broadcast the world cup matches.They further claimed that the authorities of these institutions have so far defied the orders from the FIFA, and were illegally broadcasting the games.The action followed a series of other requests informing the institutions to come to them and discuss about their interest in broadcasting the Brazil, 2014 World Cup matches.They further claimed that the institutions refused to hold a discussion with the management of LBS, and instead went ahead to broadcast the world cup games.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

The committee in charge of President Weah’s Grand Gedeh visit As they await the President Weah’s visitBy Ben T.C. Brooks (Zwedru)As the citizens of Grand Gedeh await the visit of President George M. Weah later this month, there is high expectation that the president’s visit will pave the way for the release of the convicted Grand Gedeans’ mercenaries.Report reaching the Nimba Desk says there are massive preparations of the President’s visit, which is expected to be around the end of March, where many would like the President to come up with an Executive Clemency for the release of the those men.It can be recalled that 13 Grand Gedeans were tried and found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment by Criminal Court “D” at the Temple of Justice in July 2015 for their involvement in mercenary activities in the Ivory Coast, where several UN peace keepers were killed.The citizens will also be calling on the President to speed up the pavement or construction of Ganta to Zwedru highway, which they described as a challenge to development in the southeast.The Daily Observer has learnt that the President is expected to make a brief stop in Toe Town, Zleh Towns, B’hai and Gboa Administrative districts, where he is expected to hold a meeting with the citizens to know some of the challenges they face.In Zwedru, the President will also have a town hall meeting with citizens at the Zwedru City Hall, visit several facilities, including the Grand Gedeh County Community College, the Southeastern Midwifery Training Center, Chief’s Compound in Zwedru and dedicate the newly constructed Regional Security Hub.The President is also expected to visit River Gee County.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

They include induced polarization and exploration drill programs on operating mine sites. The timing of proposed exploration work has also been extended by two years. These activities will be allowed to proceed without another permit or permit amendment, as the province argues they pose a “very low health, safety, or environmental risk.” Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, argues that these changes are making the permitting process more efficient. “As B.C.’s ‘one land manager’, my ministry is committed to getting to natural resource development decisions faster,” he says. “Low-risk mining activities, such as timeline extensions for previously approved exploration drilling, do not require in-depth review. We’re removing bureaucratic processes that will enable companies to create local jobs quicker.” – Advertisement -30 days advance notice must be provided to a mines inspector before each activity, submitted online through FrontCounter B.C.

Six to 10 people in the small town of Frank’s Valley, on the fire’s southeast flank, were evacuated late Sunday, said Ron DeHart, a forest service spokesman. In addition, mandatory evacuations remained for 50 to 100 people in the North Arm of Indian Valley and other small communities. Residents of Genesee and Taylorsville were advised but not required to leave their homes as the fire headed back in their direction, officials said. Two campers at Antelope Lake campground were evacuated Friday, and roads to the campground closed. The fire has destroyed an unoccupied summer home, trailer and small shed since it began Monday, and five firefighters have suffered minor injuries. The fire remained just 15 percent contained, and more than 2,700 firefighters struggled to dampen the flames and bulldoze fire lines as winds began picking up Sunday, DeHart said. Wind gusts were expected to increase overnight and today, he said. “We’ll be working an aggressive night shift again, and that’s been the case every night since this fire started,” DeHart said. “And there are some tough long days ahead.” So far, $10.6 million has been spent fighting the Moonlight Fire, DeHart said. Eight air tankers and 15 helicopters were dropping water and fire retardant chemicals on the fire. There was no estimate when the fire might be contained, he said. In Santa Clara County, more than 1,700 firefighters were expected to fully contain a blaze Sunday that had burned more than 47,000 acres in Henry W. Coe State Park south of San Jose, said California Department of Forestry spokesman Guy Martin. The weeklong blaze has destroyed three cabins and two small structures and injured four firefighters, Martin said. The blaze was caused by a person who started a fire in a trash barrel, but there was no indication that it had been intentionally set, authorities said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By The Associated Press GREENVILLE – Shifting winds sent smoke from a growing forest fire burning in a remote area of the northeast Sierra Nevada heading back toward the San Joaquin Valley and San Francisco Bay Area on Sunday, officials said. The massive smoke plumes that had prompted haze and health warnings in cities hundreds of miles away last week had largely dissipated by Saturday. But gusts late Sunday morning persisted through the afternoon and started pushing flames from the back toward the south and southwest as the Plumas National Forest blaze, or Moonlight Fire, topped 62,000 acres, the U.S. Forest Service reported.

Arnold Schwarzenegger said Wednesday that he would support a similar fee at the state level. Schwarzenegger, who previously said container fees would hurt the economy, now considers them an option to help fund trade-related infrastructure and environmental programs. “I think fees are good; we just have to work it out with the various stakeholders,” Schwarzenegger said during a visit with U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson Jr. “It’s extremely important that we find a way to create economic development and increase trade, but at the same time take care of our environment.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champThe governor’s policy shift comes as California grapples with an ailing goods-movement infrastructure and growing health problems linked to diesel pollution. The ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, which together handle more than 40 percent of the nation’s international trade, are listed by air quality regulators as the largest fixed source of air pollution in California. After vetoing a proposed $30 container fee in 2006, the governor in September withheld his signature from a similar bill, saying he would work during the legislative off-season to develop a program that allows private industry to help fund infrastructure repairs. Since then, Schwarzenegger has worked with state Sen. Alan Lowenthal, D-Long Beach, to drum up support for the bill, which would assess a $30 fee on every container handled at the ports of Long Beach, Los Angeles and Oakland. The estimated $500 million generated annually would be spent on infrastructure projects such as rail improvements and programs that reduce the health impact of air pollution caused by the transportation industry.

A CULDAFF man has been found guilty of a drink driving charge after gardaí found him sleeping behind the wheel of a van that was parked in the middle of the road.Aaron McColgan, 27, who has an address of 92 Cara Bay, Culdaff and Lematudder, Culkeeny, Malin, was charged with being drunk in charge of a van at The Mullins, Carn, on 26 May, 2014. He was also charged with having no insurance, driving without a licence and obstruction.McColgan appeared before a special sitting of Buncrana District Court yesterday, where he pleaded not guilty to the drink driving charge, but accepted the obstruction and no insurance charges. The case has previously been adjourned before the court on twenty separate occasions.Garda Robin Hennigan told the court that at 3.20am on Monday, May 2014, he received a report of a white van in the middle of the road on the main Carndonagh to Quigley’s Point road.He said he went to the scene and found a Peugeot Expert van with the lights on and engine running parked in the middle of the road.Gda. Hennigan said there was a male asleep in the driver’s seat.“I knocked on the window, telling him to open the door but there was no response after doing it three times the male woke up,” Gda. Hennigan outlined.“The man gave as name as Aaron McColgan and upon speaking with him I noticed that his speech was slurred, eyes were glazed and there was a strong smell of alcohol coming from his breath. There was also an open beer can in the cup holder in the driver’s door.”The court heard that McColgan was arrested and brought to Buncrana Garda Station, where a subsequent alcohol test revealed a concentration of 52mg of alcohol per 100ml of breath – more than twice the legal limit.Gda. Hennigan told the court that he seized McColgan’s van as there was no insurance or tax displayed on the van. He said McColgan informed him that he had no insurance and was disqualified from driving.Garda Inspector Denis Joyce asked Garda Hennigan if there was any space nearby for Mr. McColgan to pull in instead of stopping in the middle of the road. He said there was a lay by just off the road.Defence solicitor Ciaran MacLochlainn asked the garda if he had a conversation with McColgan about where he was going or what he was doing.However the garda said he did not recall as it was five and a half years ago.Member in charge of Buncrana Garda Station Garda Michael McGrath said he read McColgan his rights, when he brought to the Station, following his arrest.He said at 4.41am a phone call was made to McColgan’s girlfriend to arrange transport for him when he was being released.However giving evidence in court, Aaron McColgan said he had no recollection of this. He said he had very little recollection of the night in general.“I don’t remember where I was that night, I don’t know how I got there, it’s not a road I would be on as it’s not on the way home,” he told the court.“I don’t remember driving I had no intention of driving – I knew I was drunk and that I wasn’t fit to drive.”Insp. Joyce said McColgan signed the custody record to prove that Gda. McGrath went through his rights with him.He argued that McColgan’s memory was ‘selective’.“It seems Mr. McColgan is suffering from selective amnesia,” said Insp. Joyce.“He says he can’t remember anything, or even remember ringing his girlfriend but yet there is it in the custody record with his signature – her phone number is even there,” he added.Mr. MacLochlainn argued that the State did not prove that McColgan had ‘attempted or intended’ to drive the vehicle. He said this is an essential element in a prosecution case.“This is an unusual case where the van was found in the middle of the road but no one asked Mr. McColgan how he got there or where he was going,” said Mr. MacLochlainn.“He was out for the count and says he doesn’t know what he was doing. He was clearly drunk but there is no proof that he intended to drive. We don’t even know if he drove to this point. I would say there must be a doubt in the case.”However Judge Paul Kelly said he had ‘no doubt whatsoever’.“When the Gardaí arrived he was stopped in the middle of the road blocking traffic,” said Judge Kelly.“There were ample areas he could have pulled in nearby if he wanted to sleep. The lights were on and the engine was running so logic says that the person intends to drive. The defendant was unable to assist the court in any way,” he added.Judge Kelly said he found that McColgan has a case to meet and found him guilty of the charge.Insp. Joyce said McColgan has a previous conviction for having no insurance in Northern Ireland, as well being drunk in charge of a vehicle. He said he was disqualified in Carn District Court for two years from October 21, 2013.Solicitor Mr. MacLochlainn asked Judge Kelly to adjourn sentencing as he was currently preparing another legal challenge to contest the case.Judge Kelly agreed to adjourn sentencing until November 19 in Carn District Court.Man with ‘selective amnesia’ found guilty of drink driving was last modified: September 30th, 2019 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)

Donegal beaches have received a huge endorsement after four were named in a list of Ireland’s top 25 beaches.The list, published in today’s Irish Times, includes Rossnowlagh, Silver Strand in Malinbeg, Ballymastocker and Five Fingers Strand in Inishowen.However a number of much-loved beaches have been omitted from the list including Carrickfin and many of Fanad’s golden stretches. The newspaper gushes about Ballymastocker – “This one has been adjudged by overseas press as not just one of the best in Ireland, but in the world.“How it was ever pipped by some old Seychelles beach is beyond us.”Rossnowlagh was included as one of the ‘Best for Picnics’, Silver Strand was included as ‘Best for Scenery as was Ballymastocker while Five Fingers Strand was included as ‘Best for Solitude.’Of Five Fingers Strand the writer says “It’s a beautiful beach and the perfect end to a summer day spent touring one of the most beautiful parts of the country.” LIFE’S A BEACH – DONEGAL BEACHES GET THUMBS-UP IN POLL OF BEST was last modified: July 7th, 2012 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:beachesdonegalFive Fingers StrandIrish TimesRossnowlaghSilver Strand
