  • Confident WI look to rise above setbacks in first Test against Sri Lanka

    first_imgGALLE, Sri Lanka (CMC):West Indies will be hoping to put a less-than-ideal build-up behind them when they clash with Sri Lanka in the opening Test here starting on Wednesday (11:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jamaica time).Prior to the start of the tour, they lost head coach Phil Simmons to suspension for comments that were critical of the team selection. Then, monsoon rains, typical in the south Asian nation at this time of year, served to disrupt the Caribbean side’s preparation since they arrived nearly two weeks ago.Added to this, their batsmen failed to spend adequate time in the middle in the drawn three-day game, which ended Sunday in Colombo and their bowlers were kept in the field for the better part of the last two days as the Sri Lanka Cricket Board President’s XI amassed over 400 runs.While acknowledging that the pre-Test preparation had not gone smoothly, new captain Jason Holder said there was a confidence and focus in the young squad, which he expected to pay dividends over the next few days at the International Cricket Stadium.”We’ve controlled what we can control. Obviously, we had a bit of rain which offset our practice sessions a fair bit, but we’re professional,” the 23-year-old told a news conference.better opportunity”I think, going into this series, we all have our minds tuned to the game. We’ve had a good blowout in the three-day game that we had and it is now important for our guys to make a mark for themselves, and there’s no better opportunity than to start in this series.”Opting to bat first, West Indies were dismissed for 204 with only opener Kraigg Brathwaite of the frontline batsmen getting among the runs with 46. Left-hander Darren Bravo, one of the mainstays of the batting line-up, managed only 21 while the experienced Marlon Samuels failed to score and Jermaine Blackwood got three.”I’m not too disheartened. It was just a practice game where we felt we needed to spend some time,” he explained.”Obviously, certain batsmen didn’t spend as much time as we would want, but in speaking to them and seeing how they’ve been moving in the last few days, they look very, very confident … I have full confidence in our batsmen that they will be able to produce in this Test match.”The bowlers toiled without much success as well, with Holder one of three seamers to pick up two wickets, along with Kemar Roach and Shannon Gabriel. New-ball bowler Jerome Taylor sat out the encounter.West Indies have brought two frontline spinners on tour in the uncapped left-armer Jomel Warrican and leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo, but their attack is expected to be heavily pace-oriented.”We have a bit of pace in our attack, but I think skill comes into play. Obviously, in these conditions they’re pretty batting-friendly and pace may not rattle many international batsmen at this stage, so I think you have to be skilful,” he pointed out.youngest ever”Jerome has exhibited that in the last few series and over the past few years he’s been playing for West Indies. Myself and Shannon have been slowly but surely growing into Test cricket. Hopefully, whatever team we come up with for the first Test match here in Galle, whoever gets selected goes forward and does their best for the team.”For Holder, the Test will be a special one. Appointed one-day captain earlier this year, he was last month asked to take over from Denesh Ramdin in the longer format. He is the youngest ever Test captain and in charge of a struggling unit.”It is a special day for me … taking the field for the first time as captain, but, for me, it is bigger than me at this point in time.”Squad: Jason Holder (captain), Kraigg Brathwaite (vice-captain), Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Carlos Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Rajendra Chandrika, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope, Denesh Ramdin, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor, Jomel Warrican.last_img read more

  • Sending Money Back Home to Africa: 5 Top Apps

    first_imgWith the birth of the internet age, international banking and in the near future, cryptocurrency adoption, sending much-needed finances to Africa is easier, faster and safer than ever.By Jens Ischebeck (Guest contributor)Whether you’ve come to the Western world from Africa or the Middle-east, you likely want to send money back home to your family. Only a decade or two ago, the only way to do so would have been with credit unions such as Western Union, and this threw up a whole heap of problems, or by going to your bank and paying extortionate fees every time you did so.Now, with the birth of the internet age, international banking and in the near future, cryptocurrency adoption, sending much-needed finances home is easier, faster and safer than ever. While in the near past the best way was to send money internationally with Paypal, now all you have to do is download one of the many international money transfer apps out there and get sending!This means many of the old problems with economic migration have been broken down and, doing so to provide for your family makes much more sense than ever before. There are many reasons for inward remittances, one of the most common causes is the ability of the people living abroad to support family members, e.g. to study and to get a bachelor degree.In this article, we want to help guide you through the world of how to transfer money through mobile phones, to help you have a great experience in doing so!How to choose an international money transfer appBecause transferring money to international bank accounts has become so common, there are now many apps on the market that do this. This means it can be very hard for you to make a choice on which app to use.In addition, in many African countries the use of cryptocurrencies for remittances is quickly rising, e.g. in South Africa. If you are interested in the bitcoin market, see the article “Bitcoin to Rand – Bitcoin market Guide South Africa”.So here’s a handy little starter guide with what you should pay attention to:FeaturesYour app should have all the standard features – It should be able to show you live currency exchange rates, it should allow you to see your current balance on the app (if you store money with them), and of course it should allow you to make financial transfers to the country you’re trying to send money to.They may not always send to your country as each app will have to follow international wire transfer regulations, which prevents funding terrorism and money laundering. This is especially important to research beforehand, not all apps transfer to all countries, so be sure to find this out before you sign up to them!Some extra features to watch out for that can be very helpful are: voice commands, showing you how much you’re saving compared to doing a regular bank transfer with your bank, when some common times of the week are for the best exchange rates for your country, or allow cash pick-ups and mobile phone top ups!SecurityThe security of the app you are using is very important. You want to make sure that any app you use has a very strong server to protect it against hackers stealing your data, including bank account details, identification, bank accounts you’ve sent money to and any other personal information you may have stored with them.The security on your side of the app should be very important too. There have been many times when we’ve lost our phones, or had them hacked into, or even had our children pick it up and start pressing random things, so you want to make sure no one but you can access the app on your phone! This should include features like Google’s 2 Factor Authentication, passwords and fingerprint ID if your phone has that feature.Ease of UseWhichever app you use should be full of all the features you need, but should also be easy to use. You should be able to access your account and send money very simply and quickly. 2-3 clicks or taps should be all it takes to choose an account you want to send money to, and input the amount you’d like to send!It should also have an interface that’s clear, simple and intuitive, so you aren’t fighting with the app to show what you want for the first few days you have it!FeesWhile obviously having great features and an easy to use interface is important, so is how much you’ll be spending every time you send money! This is a very personal decision to you, but you should also try to make sure the fees are at least half of what you would pay with your bank. This way you have the convenience of your app, as well as a cheaper experience.One thing to be aware of with apps with low fees, is that some of them take a margin on the foreign exchange rates too, so double-check with your research that you’re getting the best deal possible!Our top 5 picksHere are our picks for the apps out there. Money on mobile is a big subject, so these apps consider it. And they take into account the above-described features, security, ease of use and fees!WorldremitWorldremit is our first pick. It is a fantastic app that really cares about its users. They often have sign-up deals with waivered fees on your first transfer, so it is worth waiting to sign up until they have another deal available!They have a fantastic set of features, enabling you to send funds to over 50 countries around the world, and all with great convenience! Not only can you send funds to another’s bank account, you can choose to organize a cash pick-up, home delivery, mobile phone top-up, or even have the funds sent to a mobile phone wallet.On top of this, WorldRemit has a tracking service that will keep you updated by SMS at every step of the transfer so you can feel safe in the knowledge your finances are getting home safely with a good timeline!One drawback to this app however is that it doesn’t work on jailbroken phones due to security reasons, so it’s worth bearing this in mind if you do have one, as many people do!TransferWiseOne of TransferWise’s strong points is its low fees. This is because the app uses interbank rates, so normally the charge ends up being only 1% of the transfer, which is an incredible rate! It also shows you how much you’ve saved on your transfer compared to other services, so you can be sure of the great deal you’re getting.You can also use a bank transfer for this service, or a credit card, which allows you some flexibility on the money you’re transferring and when you’ll pay it back.The drawback to Transferwise for those from Africa and the Middle-east, however, is the low amount of countries it can send to. In Africa, until very recently it would only transfer to ZAR, however, it has a very good rate for this, and ZAR can also be used in Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Lesotho and Namibia.However, in mid 2017, Transferwise created the MEA (Middle-East & Africa) team, to create the opportunity to transfer to more currencies. Since then they have added Israel, Nigeria, Kenya & Egypt to their list of countries, and have improved the service of transferring to South Africa, UAE, Morocco and Turkey.CurrencyFairCurrencyfair has a great system of transferring money. Rather than brokering through banks, the app uses peer-to-peer payments, so that the rates are much cheaper. That means you sell your currency to individuals and SMEs in your target country who buy at competitive prices compared to ForEx markets.You end up with fantastic rates and fees as a result: between 0.1% – 0.6% fees with a 3 euro transfer fee on top. If you’re sending large amounts, this is an absolute steal!A fantastic feature that CurrencyFair has is their live currency tracker, which enables you to check instantly what the exchange rate for your currency is. This becomes extremely useful if you’re sending to multiple currencies, or want to get the best deal possible for your money! One advantage they have over TransferWise is they also send to many more countries across the world!PayoneerThis fantastic app is the one to use for outward remittances if you’re from a country not supported by the others. It supports over 200 countries and 150 currencies. That’s almost all available across the world, so even if you’re from a very small country, or one with lots of civil problems, you should still be able to send currency to there!Another fantastic feature to Payoneer is that transfers are actually free to other Payoneer users, so if you have an international business, this is a very good app to use for your finances!AzimoFinally we have Azimo, This is a very secure app; they are regulated by the FCA and HMRC in the UK, meaning your information is very safe, while you’ll also be insured against bad practices through the app. They also have SSL certificates in their app which add extra layers of security.Azimo is also dedicated to just being an app, which shows in their app being more easy to use and clear than other apps which also have to support a website and other architecture.Finally, the app also has 10 different viewing languages, enabling you to use the app in many native languages!We hope this guide has help you on your journey to transfer money back home, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!About the author:Jens Ischebeck is an Africa focused website publisher.

  • Rights Activist Calls for CSOs, Legislative Dialogue on Human Rights Issues

    first_imgRights Activist Adama K. DempsterA human rights activist has called for dialogue and information sharing on issues of human rights between civil society organizations (CSOs) and members of the Legislature, a release has said.Adama K. Dempster, secretary general of the Civil Society Human Rights Advocacy Platform, has said such dialogue and information sharing will enable concrete actions on promoting and protecting human rights.The civil society actor, making a presentation during a retreat sponsored by The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) Liberia-Country Office and the UN Women for members of the House of Representatives of the 54th Legislature that took place from February 21 to 24 at a resort in Margibi County, said there is a need to get CSOs’ input in laws passed by the Legislature, especially laws that have impact on people’s rights.The retreat, held under the theme, “The Role of the Parliament in Promotion and Protection of Human Rights and Gender in Liberia,” was attended by current members of the House of Representatives, Women Legislative Caucus, officials of the Independent National Commission on Human Rights (INCHR), and the Civil Society Human Rights Advocacy Platform.According to the release, Mr. Dempster’s comment was contained in a paper he presented on the topic, “Civil Society and Parliament Working Together to promote and Protect Human Rights in Liberia.”Dempster said the roles of CSOs and lawmakers are complementary, therefore, “lawmakers should include CSOs’ inputs in laws that need to be passed, because CSOs have information on many issues that can assist on framing of the law to reflect Human rights concerns.”For the lawmakers, he said they need to mainstream human rights and international norms in their legislative process in order to collaborate effectively.Dempster said that the relationship between CSOs and lawmakers should be guided by teamwork, alliance, combined effort, collaboration, partnership and joint participation.Another presenter, Ms. Ghoma Karloweah, Program Manager, Peace and Security, UN Women, made a presentation on the topic, “International Reporting Obligations on Protecting the Rights of Women.” Ms. Karloweah said legislature must ensure that states “are in compliance with their international obligations and respect for the principles of international convention.”Lawmakers, Ms. Karloweah said, should be debating and adopting national legislation that conforms with the international standards set out by the Convention, while monitoring its implementation.She added that raising awareness of Conventions and its Protocols on human rights and overseeing the practical implementation of the rights set out in these Conventions are among some of the work of lawmakers.“Institutional linkages and informal relations with civil society and women’s organizations are fundamental to the promotion of women’s rights by the Parliament. Legislators can draw on specialized organizations and community groups for assistance with legislative reviews and analysis,” said Ms. Karloweah.She added that many women’s organizations can provide legal inputs on bills, as well as advice and assistance.The lawmakers, she said, can make contributions by participating in the process of national consultations preceding the preparation of the national Human Rights reports to the Universal Periodic Review (UPR). This is a unique process which involves a periodic review of the human rights records of all 193 UN member states.Of treaty bodies such as the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), there is a need to actively participate and monitor the overall reporting process, taking part as delegations sent to participate in interactive dialogues with regional and international Human Rights institutions.Attorney Urias Teh Pour, INCHR Director, Legislative Assistance, Treaty Matter and Law, who made a presentation under the theme, ‘ECOWAS Regional Human Rights Protection mechanism,’ said the ECOWAS court has the jurisdiction to determine cases of violation of human rights that occur in any member states.The revised ECOWAS Treaty of 1993, Attorney Pour said, guarantees the promotion and protection of human rights.“In line with that aim, ECOWAS adopted its fundamental principles wherein it guarantees its peoples under Article 4(g) of the Revised Treaty, “the recognition, promotion and protection of human and people’s rights in accordance with the provisions of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights,” he added.He said individuals can take cases of human rights directly to the court without exhausting local remedies.“Plaintiff must establish that there is a public right which is worthy of protection, which has been allegedly breached and that the matter in question is justifiable,” Atty. Pour said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • Liverpool boss Klopp only has eyes for top four

    first_img0Shares0000Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp is seen ahead of kick off of their match against Brighton and Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium in Brighton, southern England on December 2, 2017 © AFP / Glyn KIRKBRIGHTON, United Kingdom, Dec 3 – Jurgen Klopp has insisted Liverpool’s immediate target is to establish themselves in the top four of the Premier League before they start looking towards leaders Manchester City.Klopp’s side confirmed their recent progress with a 5-1 win away to Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday. It was Liverpool’s fifth win in six league matches, with one draw, since their 4-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur.The Reds’ success on the south coast left Liverpool in fourth place, a point ahead of Arsenal following the Gunners’ 3-1 loss at home to Manchester United in Saturday’s late kick-off.Liverpool’s latest win typified the attacking strength that has delivered 25 goals in the last eight games in all competitions, a tally that has drawn comparisons with Pep Guardiola’s free-scoring City side.“In our calmer moments we played good football,” said Liverpool manager Klopp. “I don’t know if you can compare us to Manchester City but we are a really good football team and we know that.“But we need to carry on, that’s the most important thing,” the German added.“It’s important that it’s good because we need the points, and we want to stay as close as possible to the teams in front of us.“We cannot get them immediately because they obviously win a lot of games as well, but we want to be as close as possible to them,” said Klopp, whose side could end the weekend 14 points adrift of City if Guardiola’s men beat West Ham on Sunday.“But the next game is coming, and all of them are really important for us,” said the manager, with Liverpool facing Spartak Moscow in the Champions League on Wednesday before next weekend’s Merseyside derby with Everton.– ‘Credit to the analysts’ –Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah led Liverpool’s attack with Sadio Mane, Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke held in reserve on the bench.Firmino scored twice after Emre Can had put Liverpool ahead and Coutinho added the fourth after a Glenn Murray penalty had brought Brighton back into the game before the Brazilian’s shot was turned into his own goal by Lewis Dunk.“The next game is coming, and all of the forwards are really important for us. It’s cool to have these options,” Klopp said.Coutinho’s 87th minute free-kick effectively killed off the game, with the former Inter Milan player drilling a low shot under the defensive wall after the Brighton defenders jumped in anticipation of a chipped effort.Klopp revealed the goal was down to thorough work by Liverpool’s s video analysis team.“I love goals like the free-kick. It was a credit to the analysts. They see something like this in the video meeting. But you have to have the ability to do this.”For Brighton this was their first home defeat since they lost to Manchester City on the opening day of the season.But Brighton manager Chris Hughton said Liverpool were the most impressive side to visit the Amex Stadium so far this season.“Up with Man City, Liverpool are the best offensively in the division. They’ve got pace and that’s the hardest thing to deal with.“We’ve been good so far and this was our toughest test. We’ve fallen short and they’re now aware of what can happen. Occasionally, we are going to get days like this. Importantly, it’s about how we bounce back.”Hughton added: “We were too naive and we haven’t been like that against anybody. We got served a lesson today and we need to learn from that.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

    first_imgThe makers of Star Wars have chosen to film in Donegal this summer.The makers of the Stars Wars movies have chosen Co Donegal to film their next scenes in Ireland.Location scouts secretly visited Ireland’s most northerly point at Malin Head last October.And now it has been confirmed that Lucasfilms are expected to return to Donegal in May to shoot at locations in the area. Minister of State at the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Joe McHugh, confirmed to Donegal Daily that he was aware that negotiations are at an advanced stage to filming scenes in the area.“There are still a few things to be sorted with the Department including foreshore licenses but I’m confident that will be taken care of.“This will be a massive opportunity to promote the area globally and while there still a few i’s to be dotted and t’s to be crossed, I would welcome it.“I would also see it as a superb opportunity to highlight the Wild Atlantic Way and all it has to offer,” he said. The latest instalment of the Stars Wars story ‘Episode VII: The Force Awakens’, the world’s highest grossing movie, was partially filmed on the Kerry island of Skellig Michael.The cast and crew are currently filming the first scenes of ‘Episode VIII’ in Kerry.Filming in Co Donegal is expected to last more than a month.But the tourism spin-offs from the locations to be included in the latest Star Wars epic, are expected to be huge.Already a number of bed and breakfasts and rental home sin the Malin Head area have been booked out by film crews working with Lucasfilms.
