Legislators Continue Marijuana Deliberation

first_imgSenate District O’s Peter Micciche was in the meeting and also discussed what further needs to be addressed. Alaska lawmakers will hear from the Walker administration today on marijuana regulations. Sen. Micciche(R-Soldotna): “I understand what you’re all saying about the conflict and it is relatively easily solvable as we move on in this process. The reality of this is in Ravin versus State, the weed fairy had to magically deliver this up to four ounces in your home, we’re also regulating transportation and other things.” The basis for the meeting was Senate Bill 30 which discussed the repeal of a section of the voter initiative permitting certain marijuana possession, and replaced it with language that provides a defense in court if one is prosecuted for possession. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A joint House and Senate Judiciary meeting discussed marijuana legislation yesterday. Marijuana legislation has been deemed one of the top watch priorities for this session. Discussion during the meeting also addressed the inconsistencies of the initiative’s language which specifies one ounce of marijuana and the Supreme Court case Ravin vs. Alaska, the ruling of which specified allowing the possession of less than four ounces.last_img read more

Club targeting young West Ham midfielder to bolster squad ahead of…

first_imgWe like Edimilson Fernandes at Sport Witness, mostly because we’ve seen him go through all of the ups and downs in his West Ham career, and he’s always given really honest interviews when talking to his local press about his time in London. The versatile midfielder struggled with injury last season, which heavily limited his game time with the Hammers, but once he recovered, David Moyes used him more often than not.Whether that will still be the case with Manuel Pellegrini now in charge remains to be seen, but there’s a club in Italy allegedly interested in the 22-year-old’s services.According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Sampdoria are considering the Switzerland international to bolster their midfield for next season alongside free agent Stéphane M’Bia, who left Hebei China Fortune in February after two years in the Chinese Super League.Embed from Getty ImagesThis interest is further backed by local Genoa newspaper Il Secolo XIX, who also have the West Ham youngster as a target for the Serie A side.There’s no mention of how Sampdoria would approach a transfer, but our bet would be a loan with a view to buy, since that’s how most Italian clubs initiate potential deals with Premier League clubs at first.It allows them to spread the payment for FFP regulations, as well as gives them time to decide if they want to make the deal permanent after seeing the player in action.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a Beautiful City and Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoPremier Diamond BoutiqueHong Kong’s first lab-grown diamond empirePremier Diamond BoutiqueUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystDigitization in Banks Is No Longer About Efficiency, but Business Resilience.

Chelsea could get involved in strange defender exchange, player would enjoy…

first_imgIt involves Chelsea and left-backs, currently holding the rights to both Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri, both Antonio Conte purchases.While the Spaniard has found some joy under Maurizio Sarri, who moved César Azpilicueta back to the right hand side of the defence, the Brazil born Italy international has not.This has led, in recent weeks, to a few stories of a potential exit emerging, as Inter were said to be interested in Palmieri’s services.Embed from Getty ImagesHowever, Gazzetta dello Sport, who also ran the previous story, explain Juventus are now taking a look at the left-back as Leonardo Spinazzola could leave on loan, while Chelsea, down their end, are one of the many teams interested in Juventus left-back Rogério (on loan at Sassuolo).Still with us?So this is what could happen: Chelsea buy Rogério for €20m (Juventus want to cash in), Leonardo Spinazzola (Juventus’ current backup left-back) goes out on loan and the Italians buy Emerson Palmieri to fill the holes.We doubt this will happen, but the interest is apparently there, and since the Chelsea defender is barely playing these days, he might be open to being Alex Sandro’s backup in Italy, where he’d apparently quite like to return.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Barbara Corcoran says DWTS tango was “the most joyful one minute of my entire life”

first_img Related ABC/Eric McCandless(NEW YORK) — Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran tanked on last night’s Dancing with the Stars.  She and her partner Keo Motsepe tangoed to “Whatever Lola Wants,” but her low score led to her becoming the first celebrity eliminated this season.  However, Corcoran says even if her her dance Monday night wasn’t perfect, it felt amazing.“I’ve never let go my whole life,” she tells ABC Radio. “You see, I’ve gotten to where I am in life because I anticipate, I’ve always led, I’ve always had to worry about what’s next on the horizon, make my business work out, my family work out, my goals work out — so I’m always not in the moment.”She adds, “And so for me to lean [in] last night and be in the sheer joy of the moment, it was the most joyful one minute of my entire life, I must say!”Corcoran feels as though she would have gotten much better in the ballroom, if only the show had let her stick around.“I’m a very slow starter, but I’m a very strong finisher,” she tells ABC Radio, adding, “I’ll outlast anybody and outwork anybody and out-psyche anybody to get to where I wanna go, because I need to have that victory. So sadly for me, I felt that I would improve hugely week to week.”She laughs, “They should have done the eliminations on the back end, and then they would have never eliminated me!”For the short time Barbara was on the show, she made a big deal of flirting with her much-younger partner, Keo.  He says, “She has no filter!”To which Barbara adds, “This is true. But it made it fun!”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMaticolast_img read more

Boxing: Deontay Wilder says his team bent backwards into accepting the terms for Joshua…

Powered by Firework Deontay Wilder took to Twitter late Wednesday in Alabama to tell the world his fight with Anthony Joshua isn’t happening.Advertisement “My team and I bent over backwards pause Accepting everything they threw at us to find out this Boy is terrified of me P—,” Wilder wrote. “3 months of Tea Parties by grown men they didn’t even have British hospitality and offer biscuits w/ the tea smh Damn!!Advertisement “I said all this past s— to tell the story and to apologize, I’m sorry guys they played us all. F— ’em!! We move forward the future is still bright #51-0 baby let’s go.”This comes on the heels of Eddie Hearn’s interview with iFL TV where Joshua’s promoter expressed frustration with Wilder’s promoter Shelly Finkel’s handling of the contract for the two men to fight and unify the heavyweight championship of the world.“However low your intellect may be, just understand one thing for me, if you want this fight, supposedly more than anything in the world and I send you a contract, why in the f— am I not getting anything back for six days?” Hearn said in an interview with iFL TV. “And then being told that in another six days you’ll get my comments? So 11 or 12 days to get comments on a contract that apparently we’re all so desperate to sign.“It’s absolute bull—.”For now it appears Wilder has given up on the fight, but with the way boxing is, it may be too soon to close the book on this one. This is the fight fans all over the world want to see and there is a lot of money to be made with it.While it may not happen immediately, or even soon, odds are it will happen eventually, but this certainly appears to be a substantial road block.

AfDB to Complete 3 Rural Water Projects in May

first_imgThe management of the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) has assured the public that three rural water and sanitation projects being funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB) at a cost of US$40 million, are expected to be completed by May this year.The projects are in Kakata, Margibi County, Buchanan, Grand Bassa County and Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County.LWSC Managing Director, N. Humbo Tulay, last weekend led a team of engineers to assess progress on the projects. At the Kakata project site, Resident Engineer Samuel Yoyowah briefed Messrs. Tulay and Sandikie with technical details on the progress and challenges facing the project.Mr. Sandikie said the distribution of water in Margibi County has on the basis of institutional chambers been expanded to serve private, public and business establishments.He added that one new well has been drilled, two old ones rehabilitated and the main degraded water distribution tower upgraded to its prewar status in Kakata City. Mr. Sandikie further disclosed that when the Kakata City water project is completed, the distribution of pipe-borne water will cater to 3,000 customers and that customers’ chambers have been constructed. He also said that in Kakata City alone, 10 de-sludge latrines have been constructed under the same UWSSP project intended to provide the public with safe modern latrines as part of the sanitation component.For his part, the UWSSP Project Engineer Samuel Yoyowah said due to the expansion component of the project, new areas of Kakata City have been connected with pipe-borne water.Prior to the new water project, Mr. Yoyowah said a majority of the residents in Kakata got water from shallow wells.He said to date there are 30 institutional chamber connections in Buchanan City, Grand Bassa County.Previous land occupied by LWSC in Buchanan has been reacquired and construction work is ongoing.To deter residents from encroaching on the LWSC facilities, Mr. Sandikie recommended the fencing and full demarcation of all LWSC facilities.At the end of the tour, LWSC Managing Director Tulay assured residents that the project will be completed in the stipulated timeframe.Mr. Tulay added that when the water and sanitation projects are completed, 67 percent of the population will have access to pipe-borne water in Kakata, Zwedru and Buchanan cities respectively.He also explained that prior to the civil conflict Kakata, Zwedru and Buchanan had access to pipe-borne water.In 2008, Tulay said the LWSC management revamped its facilities in Kakata City to 50 percent capacity.For the Zwedru City water system, Mr. Tulay said the facilities were restored to 40 percent.The objective of the three city water projects is to restore 100 percent water supply and some expansion and distribution networks in the three cities.“What I have seen today of the projects impressed me so much that engineers of the UWSSP have supervised the works well and our hired consultant has performed to our expectations,” Director Tulay noted. Mr. Tulay added that from the documents received and the level of work done, 60 percent of the projects’ implementation plans have been completed.As for the sanitation in Kakata, 50 percent has been completed, while in Buchanan, 50 to 55 percent of sanitation has also been completed.Mr. Tulay said by July 2016, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and a team of government officials will commission the facilities at one of the water project sites.

Giroud pleads for time, Cazorla wants signings

first_imgIn the circumstances, the last thing Wenger needed was to see his side held to a dour 0-0 draw by Sunderland on Saturday, especially as Giroud and Lukas Podolski — the two strikers signed to replace van Persie — gave underwhelming performances.French forward Giroud, who came on as a second half substitute, was especially culpable as he squandered a golden opportunity to score a late winner.Wenger acknowledged his side lacked a cutting edge in attack but Giroud scored 21 goals to help Montpellier win the Ligue 1 title last season and the 25-year-old is confident he can emulate that prolific form at Arsenal — providing he is allowed to adjust to his new surroundings.“This could have been the dream start but in Montpellier, I did not score for my first game, so I am not worried. Here, I will have plenty of chances and I will score,” Giroud said.“Last season was wonderful here for Robin but before that he took time to settle. I am just asking people to be a little patient with me.“I am not here to make people forget Robin because he has made beautiful things here but I just want to bring something new.“However, I am under no more pressure than that because if I think about that when I go onto the field, I will play with the handbrake on.“I know Arsenal is a great club and needs a striker ready and efficient quickly. I need games to get confidence and it is up to me to succeed.”Fellow new signing Cazorla has warned Wenger that the club must replace Robin van Persie and Alex Song quickly.Cazorla made an impressive debut against Sunderland following his close-season move from Malaga but the Spanish midfielder was unable to spark a morale-boosting victory as Arsenal laboured without van Persie and Song.With Podolski and Giroud showing signs of needing time to bed in, Cazorla believes Wenger needs to return to the transfer market to increase his options.“It’s clear van Persie is a great player and obviously we would all have preferred it if he had stayed. Song has gone as well and there are still 10 days left in the transfer market,” Cazorla said.“I don’t know if we will sign anyone but obviously it’s important to replace players like that because they were so important.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LONDON, England, August 20 – Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has pleaded for time to prove he is a worthy successor to Robin van Persie but fellow new boy Santi Cazorla has urged Arsene Wenger to splash the cash.Van Persie’s £24-million ($37.6-million 30.5-million-euro) move to Manchester United and the subsequent sale of Cameroon midfielder Alex Song to Barcelona have prompted another bout of soul searching at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal players and fans come to terms with their club’s dispiriting start to the season.last_img read more
