Inslee Forget impeaching Trump Voting him out is better

first_imgDemocratic presidential candidate Jay Inslee wants his party to scrap any thoughts of impeaching President Donald Trump and instead focus on voting him out of office.“We should have a dramatic, engaged, concerted, energetic and successful effort in November 2020 to make Donald Trump a blip in history,” Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said during a CNN town hall Wednesday.He said damning details still could emerge about Trump’s 2016 campaign and business dealings but added that a Republican-led Senate would never remove the president.Inslee, an underdog in the crowded 2020 Democratic field, faces pressure to raise his profile in a campaign dominated by other better-known figures such as former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.Inslee, 68, used the spotlight to emphasize his focus on combating climate change while noting his record as a liberal governor and his generally sunny approach to politics — a package that, he argued, makes him an ideal foil to the Republican president.last_img read more

Ous Jallow disatisfied with Trawallys exclusion in national team

first_imgBy Sulayman BahOusman Jallow over the weekend voiced dissatisfaction over Raoul Savoy’s decision to overlook Bubacarr Trawally in the Gambia national team.The 20-year-old Bubacarr has been in goal-shattering form scoring 17 goals in over twenty appearances.The phenomenal figure makes the former Real de Banjul man the highest goal-getter amongst Gambian overseas-based players.Savoy has been picking other strikers with few goal returns.And Jallow believes Trawally –dubbed Steve –deserves no least than a chance to prove his capabilities.‘To be honest, I’m sick and tired of hearing and receiving messages that we don’t have a killer striker while there is a player who scored more than any other Gambian player at the moment. And he is been playing week in week out for his team. Yes it is true he is not playing premier league or first division as you may call it. But I think Steve deserves to be given a chance to prove himself,’ the Finland-based striker, ruled for ‘personal reason, wrote to his thousand following on social media.The 26-year-old added, ‘Suma halat as a fan. Please don’t take it personal. Gambia sunu reew la ken oppale wut sa morrom. May Allah give us victory on Tuesday,’Immediately after saying this, the ex- Al Ain forward deactivated his account. Raoul Savoy is though yet to react.The Swiss was involved in controversy with Ous Jallow prior to Gambia’s Cameroon game and this latest comment could be viewed as another swipe at the Gambia’s gaffer selection decisions.last_img read more

Salahs injury is Gods punishment against his intentions says preacher

first_imgKuwaiti preacher Mubarak al-Bathali after the Champions League Final match in Kiev, claimed in a tweet the next day that ‘God punished him’ (Salah) for eating before the match during the holy month. He said that even though Muslims were permitted to stop fasting for travel, eating so he could play in the final was ‘not a legitimate excuse’ and Salah had sinned.Al-Bathali also said Salah intended to break his fast for the match, not because he was travelling from Britain to Ukraine, and his intention was what mattered.This is after Liverpool physiotherapist Ruben Pons earlier confirmed Salah would break his fast for the match after discussions with a nutritionist, according to Dailymail.‘Tomorrow and the day of the match he won’t [fast], so it’s not going to affect him,’ he told Spanish radio station Cadena SER last Thursday.Al-Bathali stressed Salah was given bad advice and ‘unfortunately, [he will] bear the burden’ for it.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…While the Egyptian forward’s injury keeps him uncertain for the World Cup in Russia that is weeks away, the preacher said it would remind Salah it happens by God’s will.‘Do not think the Muslim believes that life is managed by reason and effort, but life is the hand of God comes to whom he will, whether hard or not diligent,’ he said.However, Al-Bathali emphasised Salah was a ‘virtuous, good and respected man’ who was an ambassador for Muslims and was helping improve their image in the West and hailed him for observing other Muslim requirements, like walking away from his teammates when they drank alcohol.‘Do not grieve, the door of repentance is open,’ he said.last_img read more

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, Oct. 21 (JIS) – The Jamaica Cancer Society (JCS) is appealing to all women to do monthly breast self examinations and to also visit the Jamaica Cancer Society breast clinic. Women, aged 40 and older are also being encouraged to do annual mammograms, as statistics show that two thirds of all cases are in women who are 55 years and older. In an interview with JIS News, Executive Director of the Jamaica Cancer Society, Yulit Gordon, said “mammograms remain the gold standard for detecting abnormality in the breast tissue before it develops into cancer.” According to Mrs. Gordon, there is no denying that breast cancer poses a major public health challenge and a threat to national economic and social development for Jamaica. She pointed out that for every 21 women in Jamaica, one will develop breast cancer in her lifetime and the disease continues to be the leading cause of cancer related deaths among Jamaican women over the age of 25.“The high cost to treat the disease has led many Jamaican families into bankruptcy and the indirect cost of reduced productivity associated with one’s inability to work and the loss of economic productivity due to premature death, has been significant,” Mrs. Gordon noted.With this in mind, the JCS has stepped up its public education campaign along with islandwide mammography screening for October. “The Jamaica Cancer Society is waging war on breast cancer in this month of October…This disease can be treated effectively if detected early,” she emphasized.October is internationally observed as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The JCS is engaging in several activities to increase awareness about the disease, under the theme: ‘Join the Fight…Early Detection Saves Lives!’Breast cancer accounts for 29.4 per cent of all cancers in Jamaica, with an incidence rate of 43.1 per 100,000 in women and 0.6 in Jamaican men. Women 45 years old and younger account for one eighth of all cases of the disease.
