To stop six new living heads from growing back on the three undead necks that kept the monster alive, Hercules’ red (hot) iron killed the monster’s evil genes and the false hope it keptBy Attorney Keith Neville Asumuyaya BestLast week, we drifted (went back) to the story of the mythical (storybook) hero of Greek lore, (background, experience). We went back there because the author’s skillful use of that powerful writing dynamic or technique, called: “allegory.” This story of “Hercules and the Hydra-headed Monster,” does wonders for our narrative which has an allegorical twist, as well.An allegory is what results when the author or writer puts real people from the past, into a story, to represent the characters (or make-believe people) who make the story happen by acting out the parts that the writer wants something that took place a long time ago, brought to life via, (through, by way of) the stage or the screen for the benefit of today’s people, the world over. These actors’ activity creates a narrative, based on real-experiences from the past, reenacted…in living color.So, up steps Hercules, in a ‘fight-to-the-death,’ with a hydra-headed monster we introduced last week, whose malignant, (sick) tissue allowed it to re-sprout, (grow back) two additional heads after each one was severed (cut off).To show what happens when something bad hits town, and creates problems for the nation’s citizens, we did a review, of what happened in 1979, when the Rice Riot that turned the country upside-down, was staged. It showed how unnecessary trouble, can be side-stepped by simply taking things ‘light;’ in other word: society’s leadership must try and handle developments, without going crazy over a little saber-rattling.MUSA DEAN TAKES A BOWA protest demonstration that was peaceful and quiet, with no more than a few realizing that it came, happened, and went away. This paper applauded Justice Minister Musa Dean for not playing with anything considered vital, (very important) to the Liberian man: rice, money or club beer—whatever touches the Liberian man’s heart. Instead, Minister Dean agreed to just step back and let the people walk around peacefully, grow tired, and then go home to eat their rice. That is how things turned out.ALL IS NOT WELLBut, just as things were not all that sugar and spice back in the 1970’s, something new has come ashore from where it has been lurking for some time. That development, for a while, had remained low-key, waiting for the right moment for actors to step into the limelight and wreak havoc—cause trouble in “the town” we call Liberia.It is something that people feel and sense, and have begun to act quietly and make it clear that citizens need to start thinking, talking, and peaceably getting together to straighten out in Herculean fashion, whatever might not be right—that would dictate taking one thing, one problem, one step at a time!A three-headed, money-eating monster lives in our town: Is there anywhere for the Liberian people to turn? Where can they run? To whom do they run; to the Judiciary, the Legislature or to their President? To whom did Annie Constance turn? Did that get her anywhere?THE POWERS THAT WEREFor more than a century, the word was bandied (raised again and again) about, that the Liberian presidency had become more powerful than had been intended by the American Colonization Society that founded the nation in 1847; so something was needed to be done!Unfortunately, not too many—besides Albert Porte—are known to have made any serious attempt to do anything about it. Albert was an army of one—but he could do little more than write— publish his pamphlets—and go to jail!Albert Porte was not much of an organizer, and not too many people were ready for much activity during the William V. S. Tubman presidency, when Porte started going to jail, for challenging Tubman for amassing too much power in the presidency; Tubman also kept asking the Legislature to restore “emergency” powers to the presidency, whenever he felt like it.To President William R. Tolbert’s credit, he attempted to tolerate the emergence as well as the birthing of two opposition political movements that blossomed under Tolbert.They were styled the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), and the Revelation Magazine movement that proposed, organized and launched the first independent challenge to the True Whig Party in almost half-a-century, with the Sawyer for Mayor (of Monrovia) Campaign, in 1979, following the Rice Riot of the same year.THEN CAME ELLEN:It wasn’t until Ellen Johnson Sirleaf began taking the presidency to an unprecedented, (unparalleled, unmatched, first time) level—during her second term—that that much power was seen exercised, handled, or used, by any single individual anywhere; not at any time or at any place in the world—and with what seemed as no more than ‘the lift of a finger.’Neither Liberia’s W.V.S. Tubman, Charles Taylor nor the German dictator, Hitler—power maniac, all—came close to doing what Ellen was able to, stepping beyond the Nobel, to kick the political butts of everyone of consequence in Liberia, to help nudge George Weah into the presidency:She fingered Joe, slapped down the Judiciary, Legislature, and everybody else around, calling them whatever she thought they looked like, while wowing the entire global community with her success at almost everything she attempted.In doing so, she “defied the norms of society and practically infringed upon the realm of the Creator, as the literary critic, Ellen Moers, labeled Mary Wollstonecraft Shelly, in her critique of Shelly’s creation of her character in her novel, Frankenstein.It was probably because Ellen literally, had built a bridge too far—going to the limits that she did—(whatever those limits were) that others, competing for state power within the political ecosystem leapt to venture out as well.With almost as much chutzpah nerve, gall and balls as Ellen, the Legislative guys and gals of one branch, and the Judicial gentlemen, women-folk of the other, saw an opening and began reaching for power. They crashed the gates, attempting anything they believed was theirs for the taking, and the consequences, be damned.Today, the Judiciary, the Legislature and not too far behind, in their reach for power; we see the presidency, coming into view, bringing up the rear, for now. Between the three, something seem to be in the making; something akin to what—looked like the Masonic Craft, the Church and the True Whig Party of yesteryears, dominating the society and doing whatever collectively and severally they wish about all and sundry, (a variety of everything else) depending on (impulse, craze, urge).TRIUMVIRATEIt was dubbed a veritable “Triumvirate;” an unholy alliance something akin to what we see now emerging that leaves the three branches of government, a veritable hydra-headed monster, already running amok (off the chain): the Judiciary, the Legislature and the Executive Branches: our government!And it is time our citizens began to think seriously about taking on the first of those three heads—one at a time, to put things back to where they belong! (STAY WITH US!)Note: For our purpose, the allegory allowed us to draw out a deeper understanding of the realities or truth of a certain time, place and event from that primitive past depicted by Hercules, through whose eyes, today’s, people can draw parallels between some of the facts and realities of pasts that still challenge the people of today, as well as their heroes who, often must step up and try to make a difference.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
At issue is an application by the small First Nation to cancel a water licence in the Horn River Basin, in the heart of the shale gas region, where it’s located. It was issued to Nexen, a key player in the Basin, which is now wholly owned by the China National Offshore Oil Corporation, which leads the Aurora LNG partnership. The challenge comes at a time when provincial Environment Minister Mary Polak is trying to get ahead of fracking opponents with new legislation on the allocation of water rights. In addition, we are likely only months away from the completion of a study on whether fracking fluids contaminate drinking water. Premier Christy Clark is on record insisting there has never been a single confirmed case of contamination from industry activity in 50 years. However, fracking opponents like Maude Barlow, the chair of the citizens’ advocacy group the Council of Canadians, is calling for more grassroots democracy to protect what she calls the birthright of all Canadians to challenge what she calls the established rules for trade motivated only by corporate profit. – Advertisement -To read the full Petroleum News article, click here.
The Nepalese labourer should receive 1,100 Qatar riyals a month (Sh30,000), but says he has to survive on considerably less — in one of the world’s richest countries.“In my country I was promised 1,100, but for the past two months I haven’t got my salary,” he said.“They just gave me 100 riyals in advance.”Like all workers interviewed for this article, the 20-year-old asked to use a pseudonym to protect his identity.Resting in a patch of shade on the pavement during his lunch break as the midday heat reaches 36 degrees Celsius (97 Fahrenheit), Nabin said with no salary he is unable to buy food.His is forced to rely on food at his labour camp, where he said he’s been served expired chicken.Nearby, other workers rest after their morning shift, telling of endless problems.Sumon, a Bangladeshi carpenter, said his company has refused to hand him his residency permit (RP) — an essential ID card used every day to prove legal residence and required to access anything from telephone contracts to opening a bank account.“I gave 7,000 riyals to get an RP but the company has not made it,” he said.“I said give it to me, I need it to travel, but I did not get any RP.”He has complained to the courts, but a year on, he is still waiting.“If I can get my RP, I will leave,” said the 24-year-old.His colleague Ashik recounted how he paid 10,000 riyals — more than six months’ salary — to his sponsor just to obtain a No Objection Certificate, a document that permits a worker to transfer from one company to another.He then had to pay another 10,000 riyals to get his new contract, he said.Several workers complain of harassment from police demanding money from those without RPs.They say one unlucky colleague was flown straight out of the country when he could not produce his permit.– ‘They will throw us away’ –The International Labour Organization opened its Qatar office on April 29, after signing a three-year agreement with the government to oversee fundamental labour change.Qatar has come under huge pressure over its treatment of workers since winning the right to host the 2022 World Cup.Limited reforms have failed to stem criticism from human rights groups and unions which accuse the Gulf state of widespread worker abuse.Under its agreement with the UN agency, Qatar has committed to an overhaul including introducing a minimum wage — set at 750 riyals per month — establishing workers’ committees, and scrapping the exit visa where workers need their employers’ permission to leave the country.That commitment has split Qatar’s critics.Some, including the International Trade Union Confederation, are fully behind Doha.Others, including some human rights advocates, remain cautious — sceptical that reform pledges have remained largely unfulfilled.Migrant workers eat on December 06, 2016 during a break at a construction site in the Qatari capital Doha © AFP/File / STRINGERPrevious promises to end the exit visa system have never been acted upon, according to critics.The plight of workers in Msheireb echoes the sad stories of numerous workers heard since FIFA handed Qatar the World Cup in 2010.It also shows that reforms already in place — including a law ensuring wages are paid in full — have failed to protect the most vulnerable.Back in Msheireb, Ashik said those who will be most impacted by the latest reforms have heard nothing about them.Sumon argues the minimum wage needs to be doubled to 1,500 to allow those building Qatar to enjoy a decent life.“Everything is difficult because it is so expensive here,” he said. “We are here for our families to give a better life to them.”At the end of their lunch break, the workers move slowly back from their resting place in “old” Msheireb to its gleaming new replacement, emerging on the Doha skyline in preparation for the World Cup.Asked if they have any interest in football, Sumon replied: “No. They will throw us away when this project is finished.“The football is not for us, it’s for different people.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Foreign workers walk on May 04, 2015 at the construction site of al-Wakrah football stadium, one of the Qatar’s World Cup 2022 stadiums © AFP/File / MARWAN NAAMANIDOHA, Qatar, May 10 – Just a 10-minute drive from the International Labour Organization’s new office in the Qatari capital, Nabin explains how his employer has not paid his wages in two months.He is one of hundreds of workers helping transform Msheireb, a rundown district in Doha, into an area of hotels, luxurious apartments and Qatar’s very own “Wall Street” financial centre at a total cost of some $5.5 billion.
Manchester United are playing the ‘long game’ with Neymar and he could move to Old Trafford ‘in a year or two’, South American football expert Tim Vickery told talkSPORT.The Barcelona forward has reportedly been subject to a world-record £140m bid from United, although the Catalan club have made it clear they will not be selling the Brazilian.Speaking to Hawksbee & Jacobs, Vickery does not think Neymar will leave the Nou Camp anytime soon but questioned whether the 23-year-old will want to play second fiddle to Lionel Messi in years to come.“Clearly it’s not going to happen now for a number of reasons,” said Vickery. “Firstly, Barcelona have just sold Pedro. Secondly, they can’t buy anyone because they’ve still got this suspension hanging over them. But you just wonder if United are playing the long-term game here. “At the moment Neymar is very happy where he is but he’s in the shadow of Lionel Messi. That’s fine for now but if it’s still the case in one or two years’ time, he might want to go somewhere where he’s going to be the big number one.“England is obviously a potential in a year or two years’ time. That’s the game I think United are playing – establishing an interest, making it clear that they really want this player and are prepared to play big money.”
