Miatta Fahnbulleh receives Lifetime Achievement Award at the LonestarCell MTN Liberia Music Award 2021

By Henrique Caine

Miatta Fahnbulleh was a hit tonight at the LonestarCell MTN Liberia Music Award 2021, as she received a lifetime achievement award from the organizers of the event. Three beautiful young Liberian ladies showered the audience with renditions of her popular songs. The icing on the cake was when she asked 86 years old traditional cultural music Icon, Yatta Zoe ("Young Girl Stop Drinking Lysol") to come and share her award as a tribute to those who she said helped paved the way for her, in the same manner that she paved the way for those who felt she deserved their honor. But the ultimate icing on the cake was the surprise duet of "Malaika" with Mr. Emmanuel Shaw at the end. Now we see why his friends call him "Tiger"ūüėä.

In The News

Omicron is the newest Covid-19 “variant of concern,” according to the World Health Organization.

A new Covid-19 variant, now named the omicron variant, was detected in South Africa on Wednesday, prompting renewed concern about the pandemic, a major stock market drop, and the imposition of new international travel restrictions to stop the spread.

Though the variant’s existence was first reported by South Africa, it¬†has also been found¬†inBelgium, Botswana,Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, and the United Kingdom, meaning the variant has already spread ‚ÄĒ though how far is unclear, as new cases continue cropping up around the world.

While it will take scientists some weeks to understand the omicron variant, including how quickly it can spread and what the illness from infection with the variant looks like, the World Health Organization has already labeled omicron a “variant of concern,”¬†which means¬†it could be more transmissible, more virulent, or more able to evade the protection granted by vaccines than the original strain of Covid-19.

Omicron, a new Covid-19 variant with high number of mutations, sparks travel bans and worries scientists

The discovery of a new and potentially more transmissible coronavirus variant by South African health authorities has sparked a forceful reaction across the world, with a number of countries banning travelers from several southern African countries.

The World Health Organization announced Friday it has designated the newly identified coronavirus variant, B.1.1.529, as a variant of concern, named Omicron.

Besides South Africa, the newly identified variant has been detected in Botswana, Hong Kong and Belgium.

It appears to be spreading rapidly in parts of South Africa and scientists are concerned its unusually high number of mutations could make it more transmissible and result in immune evasion. Read more...

Article: Institutional Governance is the Only Hope to Develop Liberia

The formulation and expected evolution of anything that is intended to last far beyond its simple beginnings must be built upon footings that are supported by a solid base that is far larger and more embedded than that which it supports. No organization can survive the rigidity of time if it entirely relies upon an individual to guarantee its longevity. Man is here for a limited time; Liberia is here forever! How can we guarantee the continued wellbeing and development of Liberia if we entirely entrust national aspirations to the limitations of one flawed human being and not to institutions? Read more...

Economic and Social Consequences if President Weah is Given a 2nd Term

By Ansu Opa Dualu

Everything rises and falls on leadership! It is the singular issue that shapes the direction of any organization or country. The person who occupies the very top must possess certain preparational pedigree that distinguishes him/her from the typical if producing results is the goal. National leadership is not a space for trial and error; there are serious economic and social consequences if the individuals who step up to lead do not have the tested capabilities to deliver especially at the level of presidency ‚Äď clear example is Liberia under President Weah.
