Do not allow the struggle to affect you negatively

31 December 2016 / Menena Smith
Once there was a smart, intelligent  and beautiful young lady. She was fond of everyone that came across her, without the knowledge that the world is a cruel place and that disappointment is a part of human characteristics.  She showed genuine desire to help and improve the world, all Race, Enthic background  and Sex. She was very generous to everyone she met. 
As the times and days went by, she was betrayed by two (2) of her most trusted friends.                                                                                                                Instead of sitting in her little lonely corner, having  negative  views of everyone,  she meditated upon the fact that, sometimes these things happen to teach us life's lesson and mode is for the future ahead.                         As times went by, she thought to herself , " If I can overcome betrayal twice in my life, I am convinced and confident that I can overcome any chal…

Why Master Queen Won't Host Miss Liberia 2016 Red Carpet

30 December 2016 / Berenice Mulubah 
There are a lot of predictable things about Miss Liberia 2016, including beautiful ladies on stage, great performances from artists and Master Queen hosting the red carpet.  Unfortunately, not all dreams do come true.  After an intensive promotion on the Queen hosting the red carpet, she posted in her Facebook group, the day of the event, that she won't be hosting the red carpet.   If you are wondering what went wrong, worry no more, I have the gees for you.

Master Queen told C Liberia Clearly that it is all about a business deal that went bad.  The organization was to make a payment months before the event, but didn't follow through, up to the day of the event.  Master Queen said, "since November, the Miss Liberia team had my name on commercial without any payment.  Everyday I called the organizer, it was a different story.  He didn't even call me, I had to call him." 

We contacted Mr. Zubin Cooper, the organizer for this ye…

D.O.F is an independent labor that my manager and I started 2 years ago. I came up with the name after I had to make a decision.

Put your dreams over your fear. That's when the name came to me D.O.F Dreams Over Fears. I can still remember I was in Maryland when I that happen. I call my manager and told her about D.O.F and she said that's good lets go with it.
When did it first occur to you to create D.O.F?  Like I said when I had to make the decision to either stop doing music or hold on to it no matter what. 

So 'Master Piece'; how long have you been recording it for?  I start…

David Mell: We Can't Handle Negative Press at this Level - Liberian Entertainment Industry Don't Need Bloggers

25 December 2016 / Berenice Mulubah 
The blogging culture is very new to the Liberian entertainment industry and the fight against it is strong.  Blogging is about seven years young and four years strong.  Not every entertainer is feeling this aspect of the industry, including David Mell.  Yesterday, the Melody maker, David Mell took to social media to express his distaste for blogging and the negative press that comes along with it.  According to the artist, the industry only needs positive press.   What an illusion?  Media is a major part of fame and the entertainment industry, if anyone believe that they can't deal with it, that individual needs to reconsider their path.  The ones who can, will move forward.   I can name more than ten Liberian artists who are handling negative press very well. It's because these entertainers understand what they sign up for.

Monrovia - The multinational group of companies, known as Diya, has announced a long term global partnership with Liberian football legend George Weah.
The deal will see the group scout locations around the world for a number of Hope Football Academies that will look to develop the world’s football talent, particularly in emerging nations where youth have very few pathways to opportunities.
The “centers of hope” will begin in Liberia where local African talent will be given a chance to follow in the three-time African Player of the year winner who also became the African Player of the Century.
“I am pleased to partner with the Diya group of companies because I share their vision for using the world game in a very positive way in order to help develop emerging nations and offer hope and opportunity to young people where they may have little or no options available,” Weah said.

Delta Respond to YouTube prankster Adam Saleh says Delta booted him for speaking Arabic

Delta released a statement Wednesday after a YouTube star who is famous for hoaxes posted a video on social media accusing the airline of discrimination after he spoke in Arabic on a flight.
Adam Saleh, who has risen to fame for elaborate pranks, posted on Twitter that he and a friend were kicked off of a Delta flight after speaking in Arabic.
“We got kicked out of a @Delta airplane because I spoke Arabic to my mom on the phone and with my friend slim,” he said in a Tweet.

Delta says there is more to the story.
"Based on the information collected to date, it appears the customers who were removed sought to disrupt the cabin with provocative behavior, including shouting," Delta said in a statement Wednesday. "This type of conduct is not welcome on any Delta flight. While one, according to media reports, is a known prankster who was video recorded and encouraged by his traveling companion, what is paramount to Delta is the safety and comfort of our passenger…

Karine K Wesseh: The Time is Now

21 December 2016 / Berenice Mulubah 
Karine K Wesseh has a message for us all, check it out.  
"It's about time that we the youths of Liberia open out eyes and stop living that ''I DONT CARE WHAT ANYONE SAYS ABOUT ME'' lifestyle, because you should care in this day and age. For so many years we have been the last in many things. We are last in graduations, We are last in marriages, we are the last in the Entertainment industry, we are the last in economics growth and worse of all, we are the very last in supporting one another successes. Regardless of all this, it is safe to say that we are not to be blame for our problems.  LIBERIAN CIVIL WAR is the one to blame. Unlike other African countries, our country was in civil war since 1989 until 2005 when Liberia finally set up a government and had a presidential election. Due to Liberian war, most Liberian parents did not go to school, and they did not experience civilization, so they have no idea on h…

Soccer Star Ashlyn Harris Shares Her Liberia Travel Diary: Supporting African Girls in Sports

December 19, 2016  12:34PM 

While most people were scrolling for Cyber Monday deals, U.S. Women’s National Team goalie Ashlyn Harris and coach Jill Ellis boarded the first of three flights taking them from Orlando, Florida, to Monrovia, Liberia. It was only appropriate that they arrived in the capital of the coastal West African country on Giving Tuesday: the two came as sports envoys of the U.S. embassy to visit the Monrovia Football Academy, the first of its kind in Liberia to combine formal education with soccer training. In a culture where soccer, or football, is commonly referred to as manball, it was with great enthusiasm that the women’s soccer stars visited to support firsthand the work the academy is doing to break traditional gender barriers.
“They’re doing groundbreaking work by giving girls the chance to play football, and we want to help in whatever way we can,” says Ellis. That included coaching lessons from Ellis, the women’s 2015 FIFA World Coach of the Y…

Coast Guard, Canada Navy seize 26 tons of cocaine in Pacific

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - More than 26 tons of cocaine worth at least $715 million was brought ashore Thursday in Florida following multiple recent seizures by the U.S. Coast Guard and the Royal Canadian Navy in the eastern Pacific.
Coast Guard officers said at a news conference Thursday that the drugs brought to Fort Lauderdale came from 27 separate vessel interdictions and five bale recovery operations off Central and South America over the past three months.
Pallets containing the drugs, many wrapped in brightly colored plastic and some bearing labels such as “white sugar” or “pork,” covered the entire flight deck of the 418-foot Coast Guard Cutter Hamilton.
Vice Admiral Karl Schultz, Coast Guard commander in the Atlantic, said the seizures are part of an effort to target vessels bringing cocaine north by sea from Colombia, Peru and Bolivia before the loads reach land and are divided up into much smaller amounts for smuggling into the U.S. and Canada.

Liberia: U.S. Court Dismisses Defamation Case Against Henry Costa

The Associate Judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia Civil Division has quashed charges levied against Liberian radio talk show host Henry Costa. The judge's decision followed a motion to dismiss filed by Eric Menhart, legal Counsel representing Costa. The case grew from a complaint to the court via Public Works Minister Gyude Moore on June 2, 2016. He complained that on December 24, 2015, Costa falsely stated that he (Moore) had "an interest" in awarding a construction contract award to a Chinese company illegally and described him as corrupt. Mr. Moore denied the accusations, claiming that the contracts were awarded as the law mandates, to a "responsive bidder offering the lowest price."
