Sharis in Orchards attains special niche as place to gather

first_imgIt didn’t take long for a post-show Shari’s stop to become a tradition for the Heritage High School drama department.It began during the 2005-2006 school year, when cast and crew members met friends and family to unwind at the Shari’s restaurant in Orchards after the department’s production of “Oklahoma.”That first outing drew about 40 people. “We’d be all across the restaurant,” said Chrissy Lewis, who was a freshman at the time. “There would be people all around the entire circle of the restaurant, and people would have to walk around the restaurant to talk to each other.”Lewis, 20, knew it would be the first of many gatherings. “It was so fun, and we were like, ‘We have to do this next week,’” she said. “It became this unspoken tradition. We always went to Shari’s afterward.”A sense of community had formed over mozzarella sticks, pie and milkshakes.But the genesis of the tradition wasn’t the food. Early on, it was all about convenience. “At first, it was just because it was probably the only thing that was open 24 hours that was big enough to hold a whole bunch of people,“ Lewis said. “And it was really close — right next to the school.”Shari’s is one of the few sit-down restaurants open late enough to accommodate restless 21-and-younger crowds in Clark County. The family-style restaurant dishes up breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert at all hours of night, and it’s gained traction with high-school students as a late-night gathering spot where friendships are formed and inside jokes are created.last_img read more

Scientists create blinking human eye replica on a chip

first_img Share your voice 0 Hasta la vista, baby. University of Pennsylvania The human eye is so hugely complex Charles Darwin, father of evolution, once remarked it was “absurd in the highest degree” that it could arise through natural selection. Its complexity has made it difficult to replicate and model, meaning scientists have to test cells of the eye in a petri dish or using animal models. Now, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania have created an artificial human eye on a chip, which could change the way our eyes are studied.The model eye, described in the journal Nature Medicine on Monday and the result of a collaboration between ophthalmologists and bioengineers, is built on a transparent, octagon-shaped chip about the size of a dime. In the center is a contact lens-shaped scaffold that contains cells from the layer at the front of the eye (the cornea) and cells from the conjunctiva, which together form the surface of the eye. The “eyelid” in this case is a rectangle of gelatin that slides over the scaffold to mimic blinking and small channels above the eye provide a way to generate tears.You’ve probably already blinked a few times just reading this post. The subconscious effort helps to keep your eyes hydrated so they don’t dry out, creating a thin film across the surface of your eye. Dan Huh, lead author on the study and associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania, is particularly focused on creating organs-on-chips and organoids, previously creating placental chips and lung chips that are currently being tested on the International Space Station.Huh said that blinking was exactly the feature his team wanted to replicate in their replica eye model.In the blink of an eye. University of Pennsylvania “From an engineering standpoint, we found it interesting to think about the possibility of mimicking the dynamic environment of a blinking human eye,” Huh said. Successfully mimicking that film also allowed them to model a condition known as dry-eye disease (DED), which can result in itching and inflammation because of a lack of hydration.To induce the disease on their chip, the research team slowed the artificial blinking down from 12 times per minute to just six times per minute, noting this significantly reduced tear volume. The team then tested an investigational drug and found it reduced some of the inflammation usually seen with DED.They note that the mechanisms behind this action are not fully understood, but may be due to enhanced lubrication or by stopping particular molecules from kicking off the inflammation process.The scaled-back model of the eye doesn’t include the full complement of cells in the human eye — it’s lacking blood vessels and nerves, plus a swath of the immune cells usually present in the eye. In diseases like dry-eye, the immune response plays a key role in how the disease manifests. And there are other limitations the researchers point out, such as an inability to accurately mimic tear production or how the eye might interact with physiological systems present in a living, breathing human.”I hope our eye-on-a-chip platform is further advanced and used for a variety of applications besides drug screening, such as testing of contact lenses and eye surgeries in the future,” said graduate student Jeongyun Seo, a co-author on the study. 13 Photos Tagscenter_img Sci-Tech The Art of Science draws beauty from medical research Post a commentlast_img read more

Spring Creek staff acted illegally in 2013 incident Ombudsman finds

first_imgSpring Creek Correctional Center in Seward. (Hillman/Alaska Public Media)The state’s ombudsman’s office said staff at Spring Creek Correctional Center violated the law in 2013 when they stripped 12 inmates and locked them naked in cold cells without clothing, blankets or mattresses for up to 12 hours. The ombudsman made recommendations to rectify the situation in a report released last week. The Commissioner of the Department of Corrections said he’s determined to prevent something like this from happening again.Listen nowIn early August of 2013, 14 inmates created a disturbance at Spring Creek by smashing toilets, windows, and sinks. They were moved to a segregation unit.Ten days later, one of the inmates broke a shower head and tried to flood the housing unit. 12 other inmates were accused of encouraging him. They were taken from their cells and chained together, stripped in front of a female staff person, then locked naked into different cells without coverings or mattresses.Staff was not reprimanded for their actions. An inmate filed a grievance that was dismissed by the Spring Creek administrators. Those officials no longer lead the institution.The Ombudsman’s office found the staff’s actions to be illegal, unconstitutional and against Department of Corrections policy.“This kind of behavior is not acceptable in our prisons,” Alaska State Ombudsman Kate Burkhart said.Burkhart acknowledged that the inmates “had previously destroyed a significant amount of property in the prison. [However,] that doesn’t justify what happened.”Burkhart said policies and procedures to protect the safety and dignity of both inmates and staff broke down. The report recommends changing policies on strip searches and the use of restraint devices.Department of Corrections Commissioner Dean Williams said he agrees with the findings of the report. His staff are already implementing most of the recommended changes and are revising other DOC policies, some of which are more than 20 years old.“What happened then, by every standard that I have and that I think our department leadership have, that incident was completely unacceptable,” Williams said.Williams and his leadership team are pushing to change the culture of the department to prevent incidences like this in the future. Part of that strategy is to improve the relationship between inmates and staff by treating both with respect and humanity.“This whole concept isn’t just for the benefit of the inmates,” Williams said of the cultural shift. “It’s really about developing another element of security around how you interact. Because when you have relationships with people, even ones in your custody, they’re more likely to have better interactions so you don’t have this developing ‘us-versus-them’ dynamic.”Williams also created an internal investigation unit that’s independent of the institutions to look into reports like this one and to take corrective actions. The 2013 incident was originally investigated by the lieutenant who ordered the illegal actions. The new unit has also investigated the 2013 incident and concurs with the ombudsman’s findings.The ombudsman report also suggests equipping corrections officers with body cameras. Williams said he is open to the idea and to the accountability body cams provide to both inmates and staff, but he needs to consider how the evidence would be handled and how the policy could impact other departments.last_img read more

Storm in US east coast kills 5 over 90000 left without power

first_imgLow tide waters are seen Thursday evening as residents are boarding up and sand bagging their properties as a storm known as a `bomb cyclone` makes it way to the East Coast on 1 March 2018 in Scituate, Massachusetts. AFPAt least five people have been killed and over 90,000 households left without electricity as powerful storm continued to pound the US East Coast on Saturday with drenching rain.The nor’easter has also prompted the cancellation of more than 3,300 flights, snarled ground traffic and knocked out power to 900,000 customers with more than 400,000 of them in Massachusetts, reports CNN.At least five people have died, according to authorities: a 77-year-old woman in Kingsville, Maryland; an 11-year-old boy in Putnam County, Virginia; a 44-year-old man in James City County, Virginia; a juvenile in Chesterfield County, Virginia; and a Newport, Rhode Island, man who was in his 70s. All were killed by falling trees.Massachusetts is taking the brunt of the storm, which hit Friday and was not expected to ease up until midday Saturday, according to weather authorities.High tides powered coastal flooding in major cities including Boston, leaving streets awash for the second time since a massive nor’easter in early January.Record-setting high tides might strike Boston Harbour on Saturday morning.Kayakers paddled down Boston streets and national guardsmen rescued 50 people from their homes in nearby Quincy, sometimes carrying them to safety in the scoopers of front-end loaders, CNN reported.Twenty-two million people were under a coastal flooding warning as of Friday.Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker said he has called in the National Guard and urged vigilance.”Do not ride out the storm if you are told to evacuate,” Baker said.The storm morphed into a “bomb cyclone” late Friday morning when it underwent so-called bombogenesis, signalled by an extreme drop in atmospheric pressure.”Since 10 a.m., Thursday, this storm has rapidly dropped in pressure, officially passing the definition of 24 millibars in 24 hours,” a meteorologist told CNN. “It continues to strengthen.”More than 3,000 US flights have been cancelled, including hundreds at the busiest Northeast airports in Boston, Philadelphia and New York, according to flight-tracking website, including Delta, United and Southwest, are offering fee waivers for flight cancellations or changes involving affected airports. Amtrak also announced it had suspended train service between New York and Boston.last_img

All performing institutes should come together to create impact

first_imgNational School of Drama (NSD) has an eventful history. How do you think it has evolved over the years?Its almost 55 years since its establishment. It is quite an eventful and glorious organisation, which has started from the scratch and has become one of the reputed institution. As far as the world is considered, in India it is a prime institute, Asia it is a leading institute and far across it is recognised as one of its kind institution.Do you feel NSD is producing the same kind of talent which it used to now? Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’You can’t compare time to time because it changes, life is changing so training is also changing. Nature of entertainment industry is changing and the requirement outside world is changing, so accordingly we modify the training module. Though we have produced great legendary actors, directors, playwrights etc. And we are still committed to the same up till now.With more commercialisation, TV and cinema taking a hold do you think people are still interested in theatre. What’s the trend? Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixSee, it is still there. If you go to states like Maharashtra and West Bengal you would see that theatre personalities are more regarded and respected as compared to TV or cinema. Its still there because the tradition of watching theatre is still alive including going and doing. Though one cant deny that TV and cinema has more reach than theatre because it can easily and freely enter your homes without costing you much. Films can be shown at a time across the world. But theatre still has its magic pertaining to performing themes and its a one to one kind of a medium. How about the Delhi theatre circuit?Delhi theatre is always a developing theatre for me. As I am an alumni of NSD so I am seeing a evolvement since 1979 in the field. It is more of a big junction because plays are coming from different languages are transcripted, adapted, transcreated in English etc. Then most of the experiments happen in Delhi theatre.How have you revitalised the curriculum of NSD including launching of new courses?Its been three months that I have taken this seat. So we are still under the process of doing that. Some of the ideas are launching courses apt with the demand of the entertainment industry. NSD started because there was dearth of training in India as far as theatre is concerned. Now the nature, demand, requirements of theatre is changing including specialisations. So we have to find that approach in future training by branching out. Also introduce courses which are not existing, for example – play writing, children theatre specialisation, art administration, theatre criticism, theatre music and choreography and we are planning to design a course in one and a half year according to primary demands with discussion with faculties and experts.Any plans to collaborate with foreign theatre groups?We want to open the doors for every collaborator who are genuinely concerned with development of theatre. Recently there was a drama troupe from France which wanted to do theatre in the country. Like wise we want to join hands with parallel institutes like Sangeet Natak Academy, Sahitya Academy, so we have to come together to bring about a change in Indian performing culture and devise a programme to bring an impact.Has society given due recognition to theatre artists who have moved to films and TV?In states like Maharashtra and West Bengal there is a sensitivity towards the medium and people have understood the real magic of theatre. There are and will be theatre stars coming into the picture, but since the focus has shifted to TV and films, it is lacking behind. But if you look at Manohar Singh, Uttara Baokar, Utpal Dutt, Shambhu Mitra, Dr Sriram Lagoo. So the basic prime concern of NSD is to promote and project artists who are doing theatre.last_img read more

This 1950s Plane is About to Become a Vintage Cocktail Lounge at

first_imgTimes Square got a major dose of nostalgia over the weekend when a classic plane parked up to relive old memories. Of course the 1958 Lockheed Constellation L-1649A Starliner, or “Connie” for short, never landed in the middle of the city. But a famous eight storey billboard advertising it became a fixture there in the latter half of the Fifties. This stylish publicity stunt is to promote director Peter Rosen’s documentary The Rebirth of the TWA Flight Center. At the core of the film is the building of the new TWA Hotel, set to open in May.The hotel replaces and pays homage to the old Flight Center, itself inspired by the Connie. Designed by Eero Saarinen and based at JFK International Airport, the wing-shaped terminal closed in 2001 after a company takeover by American Airlines.A Trans World Airlines L-1649A Starliner in flightThe plane’s fuselage arrived from Maine, where it had been painstakingly restored. From there it returns to JFK, where it will be turned into a retro cocktail lounge out on the tarmac.AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsRestoration work was performed by Atlantic Models and Gogo Aviation and took around a year to complete. TWA Hotel (whose developer MCR/MORSE bought the plane) outlines the process of “tracking down authentic parts, installing flooring and windows, and outfitting the cockpit with controls”.But long before its current status as a novelty lounge area, it was an airborne sensation. Work on the Constellation began at the end of the Thirties, following an idea put to the Lockheed Corporation by aviator and showbusiness legend Howard Hughes. He wanted to create a fleet of ground (or should that be air) breaking planes.US TWA Airplane-Hotel. Photo by TIMOTHY A. CLARY / AFP / Getty ImagesThe Lockheed Martin website describes the project as “commercial aviation’s first coast-to-coast, non-stop service.” This then developed into “the company’s first large transport, one that ‘would carry more people farther and faster than ever before, and economically enough to broaden the acceptance of flying as an alternative to train, ship and automobile,’ said (chief research engineer Kelly) Johnson.”Such was the buzz around the Connie that the military got involved at an early stage. They were drawn to innovative features like “the first hydraulically boosted power controls, aviation’s equivalent of power steering.” It was also “faster than most World War II fighters at 350 mph.” The new plane’s debut test flight was for the army, before a single passenger sipped a Martini.Related Video: Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird – The World’s Fastest PlaneHughes still managed to play with his toy, breaking a transcontinental speed record in 1944. “The Connie averaged 331 mph, flying nonstop in six hours, 57 minutes, and 51 seconds on this flight,” writes Lockheed Martin. Two years later and it was open to the public as a commercial aircraft. Meanwhile the brand kept adjusting and refining itself. By 1951 the Model 1049 Super Constellation had flown onto the scene.Lockheed Super Constellation at Naval Aviation Museum. Photo by Trinidade CC BY-SA 3.0A less prestigious chapter in the Connie’s history concerns being “used as a marijuana dropper by South American drug traffickers” according to the Daily Mail. Despite this blip on the radar, the plane is renowned for its versatile nature and its track record of success with both commercial airlines and the military, and other uses such as spraying crops.The 1958 example which stopped off in New York comes from the tail end of Constellation production. In 1959 the journey ended and the Connie was overtaken by the Boeing 747. Its last hurrah in many ways was the Times Square billboard, an elaborate display which pulled out all the stops.Connie. Photo by Getty Images“In addition to a two-fifths scale Connie model with a working propeller,” the TWA Hotel site writes, “the billboard had 20,000 lightbulbs and 50 miles of electrical wiring for a total electrical load of ½ million watts!”The reunion between the airplane and the Big Apple was accompanied by actors in vintage attire and a “Queens or Bust” notice on the back. And for extra fun the vehicle was given a parking ticket!Read another story from us: Switzerland’s Smallest Mountain Village is to be Converted to a HotelWhile the Connie is very much grounded for the rest of its life, it will go on to be a major talking point of the hotel and remind passengers of a time when air travel was the coolest game in town.last_img read more

TEMPE Ariz — Sunday will be a reunion of sorts a

first_imgTEMPE, Ariz. — Sunday will be a reunion of sorts at Lincoln Financial Field for Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. But not the kind that greeted Arizona head coach Bruce Arians last Sunday when he faced off against his former team, the Indianapolis Colts.Like Arians’ time in Indianapolis, Bowles’ tenure with the Philadelphia Eagles was short-lived. However, it was for a far different reason. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “This game is bigger than story lines. It’s about getting to where we want to be and our goals and that’s the playoffs.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact But even in the face of newfound prosperity, the Cardinals’ first-year defensive coordinator said he’s not concerned with vindication or sticking it to the Eagles.“This is a player’s game,” said Bowles. “I said that a long time ago. It’s a player’s game. I get satisfaction out of game planning, helping us get to the playoffs and trying to help us win a Super Bowl. That’s about it for me.”The NFL may in fact be a player’s game, but one of those players, Dansby, acknowledged that Bowles deserves a bulk of the credit for remake Arizona’s defense into one of the more stout units in the league.Dansby, who played under Bowles back in 2011 when the 50-year-old went from being the Miami Dolphins’ secondary coach to their “interim” head coach, said the biggest difference he sees, is that unlike in past jobs the former NFL safety has finally been given the opportunity to lead on a full-time basis.“He’s running the show here,” Dansby said. “He’s the defensive coordinator here. [In Miami], he was the defensive backs coach and then at that time he ended up being the interim head coach. When he was the head coach, we played lights out for him because we wanted to get him the job. I don’t think they ever interviewed though at that time, but I’m not sure how that situation. 0 Comments   Share   center_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Him as a defensive coordinator is awesome. His approach to the game is perfect. He puts playmakers in a position to make plays. Man, we’re having fun.”Bowles’ current players would certainly like to add to that fun by highlighting his return to the City of Brotherly Love with a victory.“I think any time a coach comes back to a place [he used to coach], you want to win for him,” Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell said. “He’s our coach, and we want to make sure that when he goes back around to a place he’s been before that he comes with a mindset that they should regret losing him. That’s everything. “Everybody that comes to a different team and goes back and plays their old team, they’re always going to go out there with a little more vengeance, trying to show that team that let them go that they shouldn’t have.”With that said, Campbell noted that Bowles didn’t even bring up his past affiliation with Sunday’s opponent, instead choosing to focus on the task at hand: staying in the playoff picture.“I think the biggest thing is we want to go out there and play good football,” said Campbell. “We’re a playoff team in our opinion, and we have to go out there and show it week in and week out. Given the additions of John Abraham, Matt Shaughnessy, Karlos Dansby, Tyrann Mathieu, Jerraud Powers and Yeremiah Bell, Bowles has been able to make the most of his latest professional chance, turning a good defense into an elite one.Heading into Sunday’s game, the Cardinals have the second-ranked run defense (81.3 yards per game) and the eighth-ranked total defense (317.1 yards per game). They’ve also forced the sixth-most turnovers (26) and allowed the eighth-fewest points per game (20.3). But how different is Bowles from 2012 and 2013?If you ask him, not a whole lot has changed.“I learned [last year] to just keep grinding,” said Bowles. “You’re never too old to learn anything and you’re never too knowledgeable not to take advice from everyone else. As a whole, the organization was great. We just didn’t get it done. It didn’t stop my belief that I could coach or anything like that. It just happened to steam roll and we went downhill.“[Last season] was more or less about frustration but not any kind of self doubt. You’re frustrated as a coach or a player, because you try to win every game. And when you don’t and it starts snowballing, sometimes there is no way out. We couldn’t get out of our own way.” Top Stories Although he signed on to be Philadelphia’s defensive backs coach in Jan. 2012, Bowles was quickly promoted to the defensive coordinator position on an “interim” basis mid-season, as the organization decided to part ways with an embattled Juan Castillo.Needless to say, the switch didn’t bring about a change in production. In fact, the defense statistically got worse.Following Bowles’ “interim” promotion, the Eagles promptly dropped nine of their last 10 games. In those 10 games, his unit allowed an average of 32.9 points per game, and opponents eclipsed the 30-point mark on eight different occasions. Not surprisingly, he wasn’t retained when Philadelphia hired Chip Kelly in Jan. 2013.“As a coach, when you’re given a job you think you can do everything,” Bowles said of his time as the Eagles’ defensive coordinator. “I didn’t get it done, and we didn’t get it done as a team.”Bowles’ inability to right the ship with the Eagles, though, did not deter his former head coach at Temple, Arians, from bringing him into the fold in Arizona.While his arrival in the Valley wasn’t met with much fanfare, Bowles has done a tremendous job during his first season with the Cardinals. Not only has he kept former coordinator Ray Horton’s unit afloat, he’s actually improved it. last_img read more

On if its too early to know what personnel change

first_imgOn if it’s too early to know what personnel changes there are:“I’ll know more after tomorrow after I watch practice.”On S Tyvon Branch, his injury last year and if his recent performance is what he envisioned for Branch:“Oh yeah. It’s nice to see him healthy. This is the player we saw in Kansas City and Oakland. We were laughing about it this morning. I said, ‘Isn’t it nice to be healthy?’ He’s playing really, really well right now.”On if stopping the run is important against the 49ers because RB Carlos Hyde is having a really good year:“Stopping the run is always number one with us, and he has always been a challenge because he’s a big back, but he’s got really light feet and can jump cut. He’s powerful, runs behind his pads. He, again like Zeke (Ezekiel Elliott) will be a heck of a challenge.”On why the team’s red zone percentages haven’t been good on either side of the ball:“Yeah, we spent so much time on it, it’s kind of disappointing. We’ve run, probably, too many RPOs down there and didn’t execute them properly or didn’t make the catch or the throw, like the fourth-and-one in Indy. We’ve got to run the ball better, for sure. Defensively, we’ve got to stop the run better, and it’s usually after a big play. We’ve got to play better defense after a big play that put us down there.” Top Stories John Brown, Jermaine Gresham, (D.J.) Humphries, (Mike) Iupati, Chandler Jones, (J.J.) Nelson, (John) Wetzel and (Deone) Bucannon were all limited. Bucannon was actually full. We walked through, so it didn’t really matter. It’s hard to tell, but I expect all those guys to be out in pads tomorrow.It was a very good learning day. Obviously, coming off of a game Monday night, we weren’t going to do anything physical today, so that we’re ready for Sunday. We got a lot done, though. I feel like these walkthrough practices sometimes are better than the actual, physical practices. We’ll put our on tomorrow, like I said, and get after it, fundamentally.A good start to the week. We know what type of opponent we have. It’s a division game, it’s a home game and we’ve got to win the game.”On how encouraged he is about his players’ health:“I’ll be more encouraged when we see them tomorrow. The fact that they’re allowed to practice doesn’t mean they’re back in football shape. You know what I mean? You miss three weeks, and the game’s really fast, and this is one heck of a defensive line. Young, all first-round picks, and they’ll be a great challenge for us.” On his evaluation of 49ers QB Brian Hoyer after he was hired as Cardinals head coach in 2013:“I like Brian. He’s very smart, fairly accurate and didn’t have him very long, but was always impressed with the type of quarterback he is because he’s a very cerebral quarterback that can beat you with his arm and his legs.”On if being able to run the ball is the most important thing for the Cardinals when they play red zone offense:“Yeah, and the way we’re getting played, a lot of the times, everybody’s decided to sell the ranch to stop the run. You’ve got to throw it, and we’re not doing a very good job of that.”On how much tougher it is when the windows are tighter:“Your red zone passing game is totally different than your field. Obviously, there’s no verticality to it.

he is not surprised that his name has been included in the latest list of looters released by the presidency on Sunday In a statement sent to DAILY POST on Monday Fani-Kayode insisted that he has not been convicted by any court of law He labelled the allegations as “nonsensical and utterly shameful” while calling President Muhammadu Buhari’s government “weak” The statement read: “It has been brought to my attention that my name was placed in what the Federal Government of Nigeria describes as its “looters list” “I wish to make it abundatly clear that this is nonsensical and utterly shameful and I hereby reiterate the fact that I am totally innocent of any wrongdoing “The fact of the matter is that no “looters list” is complete without the names of Muhammadu Buhari Yemi Osinbajo Rotimi Ameachi Tunde Fashola Bola Tinubu Lai Mohammed Adamu Abdullahi Dambazau Kayode Fayemi Babachir Lawal Maina Maikanto Baru Burutai all APC Governors and other key members of the Buhari administration and the APC “The Federal Government claims that I “looted” 800000000 naira from government coffers This is false “I did not receive and neither was I ever given one kobo by any government official government agency or government parastatal during President Goodluck Jonathan’s tenure “The money that I received was given to me by the Director of Finance of the Jonathan Campaign Organisation Mrs Esther Nenadi Usman before the election in 2015 and it was specifically for the conduct of the Presidential election “I was Director of Media and Publicity of the Campaign Organisation and it was used specifically and solely for the running and conducting of the media and publicity aspect of the election “Mrs Usman who was Minister of Finance during the Obasanjo government was neither a member of the Jonathan government and neither did she manage handle or touch any government funds in her capacity as Director of Finance of the Jonathan campaign “The money she made available to me came from a private company account which was used to house contributions made to the Jonathan campaign by party supporters after a series of fundraising event “These were private funds and not public funds and neither can anyone expect us to have run an election in 2015 without any money You do not run election campaigns with sand but with money “It is common knowledge that the Buhari campaign in 2015 was funded by moneys that can be traced directly to the state governments of Rivers state Lagos state Kano state Ogun state and a number of other key APC states yet not one of those involved or that governed any of those states at the time have been questioned arrested or prosecuted by the EFCC or the Federal Government “It is also common knowledge that President Buhari himself was offered and received several benefits and received money from the office of the former National Security Advisor Col Sambo Dasuki yet nothing has been done about this “From the foregoing it is clear that the Buhari administration’s so-called war against corruption is selective and punitive and it is nothing but a vicious media trial and politically-motivated witchunt “It is nothing but a squalid and mafia-like attempt to muscle discredit demonise and sillence key members of the opposition It is slanderous malicious and unjust “If not for the fact that the Buhari administration is an irresponsible weak desperate and corrupt government that has no confidence in itself and no sense of decency how can they declare people that have not been convicted by any court of law as “looters” “Not only is this a violation of the constitutional provision that says that an accused person is deemed innocent until they are proved guilty by a duly constituted court of law but it is also highly prejudicial to the criminal cases that they are or may be facing “Apart from that it is a crude and sordid attempt to intimidate the judges and influence the outcome of the cases which are before them and also to compel them to give the judgement that the government wants This is not only unacceptable but it is also shameful “It is a clear violation of the concept of separation of powers which gives the judiciary alone the power to determine the guilt or otherwise of an accused person “It is trite law that only a court of law can declare a man guilty or declare him a thief or a looter and not Buhari and his government “How can anyone get a fair trial in a country when the government has already pronounced them guilty before the world “You cannot be the investigator accuser prosecutor and judge in your own case This is a basic principle of criminal and constitutional law which appears to have been lost on President Buhari and his cohorts “I don’t blame him: I blame Vice President Osinbajo who as a Professor of Law and a learned SAN should know better and who I am reliably informed is the co-ordinator of all these politically-motivated baseless and malicious corruption cases which are being conducted against opposition members by the EFCC “He is the one that has been saddled with the shameless responsibility of manipulating the prosecutors emboldening false witnesses attempting to pressure the judges and attempting to send innocent men and women who are members of the opposition to jail “One day whether he believes it or not there will be a reckoning for his wickedness just as there will be one for Buhari and his entire government God will see to that and He will judge and punish them “Meanwhile I reject the false label of “looter” and I hereby return it to sender “I also deny all the charges that have been levelled against me by the EFCC I hereby restate my innocence and I shall continue to vigorously defend myself and my good family name in the court of law “I have no doubt that in the end my innocence will speak for me God will vindicate me and He will expose my accusers for the heartless monsters that they really are”MA
