Check out her views below --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It took me 5 days to finish the documentary because I couldn't stomach it, because it triggered emotions of my own nightmares with abuse. DISGUSTED, ASHAMED, HORRIFIED, and ABANDONED are some of the adjectives and raw emotions I felt as I watched and listened to the testimonies of girls that were abused, raped, and impregnated by a HIV infected man that was supposed to protect them! As a mother of girls, a Liberian, a founder of a non-profit whose mission is to educate, empower, and inspire girls, and a SURVIVOR of molestation and rape myself, this is personal!

Bill Cosby Denied Retrial, Wife Camille Accuses Judge Of Bias

Cosby gets rebuffed by the courthouse. Bill Cosby has apparently lost his first appeal to see his conviction overturned. According to CBC, the judge presiding rendered their decision on Tuesday after careful consideration into the matter, causing Cosby's wife Camille to again, accuse the judge of malpractice & bias against her spouse. Cosby's wife believes a confrontation with a pivotal pre-trial witness may have swung things out of favor.

Liberia: 19 Year Old Liberian Shot in Chicago

Chicago has one of the highest homicide rates in the country, so business is brisk at Leak & Son's Funeral Home, which arranges nearly 3,000 funerals a year. "On Saturday, the most funerals take place,” Spencer Leak Sr., president and CEO of the funeral home, told VICE News. “We may find ourselves with 10, 12, 15 church services throughout the community, all at the same time.”
What they've found is every mourning family mourns in its own way. VICE News followed the painful experience of one family grappling with the loss of their teenage son, Prince Kargou, as they said goodbye with the help of Leak & Sons.

Liberia: MTM Situation - 'A Tip of the Iceberg'


Amid the public outburst of anger and indignation over the rape and abuse of over a dozen girls by a staff of the More Than Me (MTM) Academy, along with attempts by its founder, Katie Meyler, to cover-up evidence and protect the culprit, Macintosh Johnson (now deceased), the chair of the SHEROES International Forum Liberia, Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor, believes the situation is much bigger than More Than Me. "A tip of the iceberg", she called it. Speaking at her Capitol Building office last week, in a prelude to the launch the 'Jewel Starfish Foundation' to provide scholarship and other education empowerment for girls across Liberia, VP Taylor said the More Than Me issue mainly highlights problems the country faces to enable the Liberian people to understand how vulnerable girls are in society.

Single ticket in South Carolina wins $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot

Hate to break it to you, but you're not the nation's newest millionaire -- unless you're the lone person in South Carolina who picked the magic Mega Millions numbers to win the $1.537 billion jackpot. Should the unidentified winner pick a one-time cash option, they would walk away with a cool $878 million. Otherwise, the full $1.537 billion jackpot would be paid in annuities over 29 years. The numbers drawn Tuesday night were 5, 28, 62, 65 and 70, and the Mega Ball was 5. Only one person matched all the numbers to win the jackpot, Mega Millions said. A whopping 36 tickets nationwide matched five of the six numbers for second-prize tickets.
The jackpot fell just short of the all-time US lottery record, set in January 2016 when three winning Powerball tickets split a $1.586 billion prize. Mega Millions officials had earlier estimated that Tuesday night's prize would reach $1.6 billion, but the total wasn't finalized until after sales stopped shortly before the dra…

World Bank Report on Liberia Shows Alarming Inflation, Revenue, Slump and Budget Shortfall

Liberia’s economy isn’t doing any better, fiscal deficit continues to widen as recent World Bank report puts it at 5.2% of the GDP in FY 2018 compared to 4.8% of the GDP in the previous fiscal year. This is a result of a significant shortfall in revenues and higher than anticipated non-discretionary expenditures, according to the report. Non-discretionary spending is spending that is required by a budget, contract, or other commitment. Core non-discriminatory expenditure and interest revenues constitute about 75% of domestic revenues.
The deterioration of the economy has also been attributed to slower than anticipated economic activities which resulted from prolonged period of political uncertainty, tax waiver policies in the run-up to the presidential elections in 2017, unresolved court dispute on the collection of petroleum levy and lower projected grants. All these have summed up to shortfalls in revenue amounting to 20% of the National Budget.
The report referenced the 2016 House…
