Salt Lake City, Utah, October 15 – 19, 2015: During this week’s interfaith conference, the local Sikh community joined together to accomplish something great: in addition to feeding up to 10,000 of the conference’s attendees for free, they donated thousands of pounds of leftover food to local homeless shelters.

“Sewa, service to the community is essential to Sikh life and food is a big part of that,” said Dr. Manohar Singh Grewal, former president of the World Sikh Organization, chairperson of World Sikh Council until 2011 and host of the langar. “For a Sikh it is both a privilege and a duty to provide langar in the gurdwara (place of worship) for the entire congregation after weekly worship. The langar is part of our worship, a fundamental aspect of Sikh life, and we are honored to share it with the Salt Lake City community.”

The Sikh community donated food every day during the Parliament totaling a donation of 3,800 pounds over the five days, equal to 3,166 meals. The food has been donated to the nearby Catholic Community Services St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen, a housing and homeless shelter, for their daily supper. Danielle Stamos, director of public relations and marketing of Catholic Community Services of Utah said, “We serve over 1,200 meals each day at out St. Vincent de Paul Dining Hall to our low-income and homeless friends. This food was greatly needed to help us keep stomachs full and people warm as the temperatures drop. The Parliament is about bringing together people of all different religions and backgrounds. It’s wonderful to see and the end of it all, their focus is helping those in need.”

When logistical problems came up for the Sikhs to donate their food, Thomas O’Donnell, expert on food waste recovery, stepped up to find a solution. He contacted the Utah Food Bank, and they got involved to make it all happen.

“We’re so thankful for the foresight of the Parliament’s leaders as they work to eradicate food waste,” said Ginette Bott, Utah Food Bank Chief Development Officer. “This wonderful donation means that the clients who receive these meals won’t be one of the 423,000 Utahns who are at risk of going to bed hungry tonight. In a state like Utah, no one should have to wonder where their next meal will come from, and eliminating food waste is a great first step in Fighting Hunger Statewide.”

With World Food Day October 16, emeritus trustee Solomon Katz committed the Parliament to donating all excess food to Feeding America, the country’s largest domestic food aid organization. As a way to actualize the commitment of the many thousands who attend the largest inter-religious gathering in the world to providing food for the poor and hungry of the local Salt Lake City region where the historic Parliament is taking place. This commitment to saving surplus food that might otherwise be wasted also symbolizes the the commitment of all present to help eliminate food waste, one of the goals of the new UN Sustainable Development Goals recently announced at the United Nations and by the US EPA and USDA to cut food waste by 50% by 2030.

“Much of the Parliament is about saving waste, improving our environment, and providing for those who suffer from poverty, hunger and thirst. Donating our excess food couldn’t make more sense and I feel fortunate that other leaders are on board to help make it happen,” said Trustee Sol Katz, a University of Pennsylvania professor and Chair of the International Task Force on World Food Problems for the American Anthropological Association, focused on science and inter-religious solutions to world food problems.

Parliament of The World’s Religions is hosted a 5-day interfaith conference in Salt Lake City October 15-19th. 10,000 people from 80 countries and 50 different faiths attended this year’s Parliament. The Parliament of the World’s Religions was created to cultivate harmony among the world’s religious and spiritual communities and foster their engagement with the world and its guiding institutions in order to achieve a just, peaceful and sustainable world.

Nigeria’s Answer to Spotify Lures Investors From MTN to Jay-Z

0 0
Read Time:4 Minute, 18 Second

The mansion, the pool, the Bentley, the life-size portrait and the gold medallions are the spoils of a revolution in Nigeria and music superstar D’banj is enjoying them.

The 35-year-old used to have to bargain with street-market traders to sell his CDs because there were no formal distribution outlets. Today, MTN Group Ltd., Africa’s biggest mobile-phone operator, and Emirates Telecommunications Corp. sell songs by D’banj and other stars like Davido and 2Face as ringtones and downloads. Now Tidal music streaming service owned by U.S. rapper Jay-Z is interested in the Nigerian market.

“Our consumers can’t get enough of it; you only need to give them a way to get the music,” 35-year-old D’banj, whose real name is Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, said at his home in the up-market Lekki neighborhood of Lagos, dressed in a shiny fuchsia shirt. “The telecommunications companies are bridging the gap and they’re raking in billions and billions of naira every year, just from content.”

Thanks to Nigeria’s answer to Spotify and Apple Music, the music industry has seen sales triple in the past five years as mobile downloads surged despite rampant piracy. With at least 550 albums each year, revenue to artists from sales is now worth more than $150 million annually, according to Sam Onyemelukwe, chief executive officer of Lagos-based Entertainment Management Co., partner of Paris-based Trace TV.
Enough for a Ferrari

Outside of his revenue from Apple Inc.’s iTunes, D’banj said that in the past 18 months he’s earned more than $200,000 from sales in Nigeria. “It’s close to buying me a Ferrari,” he said by the pool at his home, where he has his own recording studio.

More than two-thirds of MTN’s almost 63 million subscribers in Nigeria are using its ringtones service, for as little as 50 naira (25 cents) a song, with downloads on its Music Plus platform growing about 25 percent a year, said Richard Iweanoge, MTN Nigeria’s general manager for consumer marketing.

“We have become the largest distributor of music in Nigeria,” Iweanoge said. “It turned out that Nigerians actually wanted to buy music, they just didn’t have a legal way to acquire it.”

The boom has drawn the attention of Jay-Z, the rapper whose real name is Shawn Carter. “My cousin just moved to Nigeria to discover new talent,” he said April 26 on his Twitter account. It was part of his move to make his Tidal music-streaming business “a global company,” he said.

Boosted by satellite television outlets such as Trace TV and MTV Base Africa, a unit of Viacom Inc., many Nigerian musicians have won international acclaim.

“Trace and MTV Base have played a very good part in bringing the artists to the rest of the world,” Onyemelukwe said. “We pay royalties and it brings the viewers to whom we can advertise to gain revenue.”
Awards Sweep

At the 2015 MTV Base Africa Awards held in South Africa in July, Nigerian musicians swept the most prestigious awards, with Davido winning best male artist and Yemi Alade best female artist. D’banj, ambassador for brands from Apple’s Beats Music to Diageo’s Ciroc Vodka, clinched an award for popularizing African music.

“We’re operating in a music industry that doesn’t really have clearcut structure,” D’banj said. “It’s a global thing. Everyone is trying to come up with new formulas.”

In the 1960s and 1970s Nigeria had a robust music industry, with EMI Group Ltd., Philips Records and Polydor Ltd. publishing the works of musicians including the late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, King Sunny Ade and Osita Osadebe who went on to achieve global appeal. Most of the companies pulled out in the 1980s as an economic crisis led to currency devaluations and lower disposable income.
Mobile-Phone Revolution

“When the big recording companies left Nigeria and the local ones took over, things went south,” said Tola Ogunsola, co-founder of Nigerian music-download website MyMusic. “There was no formal distribution in Nigeria anymore.”

That left musicians resorting to selling their rights to distributors for a one-time fee, or heading over to the open-air Alaba market in Lagos to get traders to distribute their recordings.

Then, in 2001, MTN led the introduction of mobile phones in Nigeria, and today there are almost 149 million lines. That’s given local artists an unparalleled avenue to distribute their songs.

“In the last five years, the market was ready to buy, the market was ready to consume, consuming more of our own content,” D’banj said. “I believe it is just the beginning; it has not even reached the threshold yet.”

Political Witchhunting: Benghazi Hearings Cancelled After Clinton Drops Out of Race

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 13 Second

WASHINGTON—Washington was in turmoil on Tuesday morning as a House select committee abruptly cancelled its Benghazi hearings shortly after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that she was withdrawing from the Presidential race.

Secretary Clinton’s stunning announcement came at 9:00 A.M., followed by the committee chairman Trey Gowdy’s decision to cancel the hearings at 9:04.

“As you know, we have been preparing for this week’s hearings for months,” Gowdy said. “However, after meeting with fellow committee members over the past four minutes, we’ve come to the conclusion that we know all we need to know about Benghazi.”

Gowdy flatly denied that the decision to cancel the long-awaited Benghazi hearings had anything to do with Clinton’s sudden departure from the race. “We wish her well in whatever her future endeavors may be,” he said.

But shortly after Gowdy’s announcement, Clinton called an impromptu press conference at 9:13 to announce that she was jumping back into the race. “I was just trying to prove a point,” she told reporters, before heading off to campaign stops in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Minutes after Clinton’s second announcement, an irate Gowdy called her decision to reenter the race “beyond unethical” and revealed that the committee’s investigators had just uncovered fresh evidence about Benghazi.

Read Time:1 Minute, 15 Second

…Calls for urgent govt. intervention

Dr. Dakuku Adol Peterside, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State in the April, 2015 election has empathized with the Joinkrama, Akinima and Ubie communities currently ravaged by devastating floods which have displaced the inhabitants of the areas in Ahoada West Local Government Area in Rivers State.

These devastating floods, occasioned by the Orashi River overflowing its banks, have submerged houses and farmlands of these agrarian communities, leading to the displacement of the inhabitants, their lives and livelihood generally disrupted and left stranded.

Dr. Peterside expressed his sadness over the avoidable sufferings the people of Joinkrama, Akinama, Ubie and other surrounding communities have been subjected to due to the floods.

“It is unfortunate to observe the disruption to lives and livelihoods of our people across these flooded communities at this time. Indeed, it is quite sad to note that most residents in the various communities now access their homes through canoes and makeshift bridges,” Dr. Peterside bemoaned.

He called on relevant authorities to urgently intervene to save the lives and livelihood of the people of the affected areas who are largely farmers following the destruction of their entire farmlands by the ever-rising floods.

“Government should immediately come to the aid of these people by providing them safe location of aboard; urgent medical attention because of the imminent breakout of diseases and provide them food and safe drinking water until the situation returns to normal,” Dr Peterside stated.

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 9 Second

LAGOS—Dr Femi Thomas, widower of late Consultant Paediatrician at Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, Dr. Hestianna Thomas, was yesterday transferred to the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department, SCIID, Yaba, over alleged involvement in his wife’s death.

Dr. Thomas as reliably gathered, submitted himself to policemen at Ajao estate division immediately his wife was certified dead at the LUTH last week.

However during interrogation, he reportedly told policemen that his wife could have committed suicide, maintaining that he knew nothing about her death.

As at yesterday, policemen at the Homicide section of SCIID had reportedly swung into action in their bid to unravel the cause of the late Consultant Paediatrician’s death and subsequently bring her assailants to book. Sources at the SCIID hinted that until the contrary was proved, Dr Thomas would have to remain their guest.

Sources explained that although Dr Thomas was the complainant “ but with the marks of violence on the body of the deceased, it leaves us with no option than to detain him until the contrary is proved”.

Confirming his arrest, spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, Mr Joe Offor, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, DSP said “ Yes, Dr Thomas has been transferred to the SCIID. He said that he found the body of his wife outside their room that fateful morning and rushed her to LUTH where doctors confirmed her dead. The man submitted himself to the Police at Ajao division .

“ We do not know the cause of her death yet. But there were marks of violence on her body. Investigation is however still on. The corpse has been deposited at the LUTH morgue”.

However, Management of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, Idi Araba, Lagos, has urged the public including to refrain from speculations about the cause of death of one of its consultants.

In a statement signed by the Chief Medical Director, LUTH, Prof Chris Bode, he appealed to members of the public to wait for the result of the Coroner’s inquest into the death of the late Consultant before jumping into conclusion.

The statement read: “On Tuesday, 14th October 2015, Dr (Mrs) Hestia Idiodi-Thomas, a young Consultant Paediatric Surgeon and staff of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital was brought to the LUTH Accidents and Emergency Department following  injuries sustained in  tragic circumstances within her home environment.

“ All efforts at resuscitating her failed and she was pronounced dead. The untimely death of this mother of two was a rude shock to her colleagues and the entirety of the LUTH community.

“The police were promptly informed and a Coroner’s inquest into the case is almost completed.

“Dr Heista Idiodi-Thomas was beloved by her colleagues, patients and all members of LUTH community who admired her dedication to duty, her gentle ever-smiling mien and humility to all. We shall all miss her.

“While we pray for the repose of her soul, we appeal to all to refrain from any speculations about the cause of death until the coroner’s verdict has been pronounced.

“We therefore implore the press and the general public to please respect the memory of this rare gem and leave the family to mourn as they should during this difficult period”.

Meanwhile when contacted on the release of the autopsy report, the Deputy Secretary , Nigerian Medical Association, NMA Lagos branch, Dr Peters Ogunubi, he assured that it would be ready by weekend.

According to him, “we cannot confirm if he (Dr Thomas) has been arrested by the police. But we can only tell you that the result of the autopsy will be out before weekend. And that will rest the controversy.”

Nigeria, others lost $4bn to shady oil deals – GLOBAL WITNESS

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 30 Second

International transparency group, Global Witness, yester-day, stated that Nigeria, Angola, Republic of Congo and the Democra-tic Republic of Congo lost about $4 billion (N800 billion) in shady oil and mining deals.

Global Witness, in a recently released report, disclosed that anonymous companies facilitated the loss of national wealth on an epic scale, while it questioned the role of international oil companies that facilitate such deals.

The report revealed how oil and mining assets worth $4 billion have been allocated to companies whose ownership is obscure.

According to the report, in Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola, lucrative oil and mining licences were awarded to companies with hidden owners, diverting vast resource revenues to unknown private pockets.

It added that in the Republic of Congo, a company whose beneficiaries remain uncertain – and which has historical connections to high ranking public officials — has recently received lucrative stakes in several oil fields.

Specifically, Global Witness put Nigeria’s loss at $1.1 billion, which, according to the report, was the price agreed with an anonymous company for the OPL 245 oil block, of which Italian prosecutors claim $533 million was fingered to pay bribes.

The report put the loss to Democratic Republic of Congo at $1.36 billion, which was the value lost from just five mining deals and which was almost twice the DRC’s annual spending on health and education combined.

Angola lost $1.3 billion which was the value of part of an oil field interest sold back to the state by a company secretly owned by top officials, while the Republic of Congo lost $20 million, being the estimated value of an oil field interest won by a company previously exposed for payments to offshore companies owned on trust for the ruling elite.

DSS secretly arraigned Radio Biafra boss, Nnamdi Kalu

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 2 Second

ENUGU—Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kalu,who was arrested at Golden Tulip Hotel in Lagos by the Department of State  Service,DSS, after he returned from  the   United Kingdom has been granted bail by the Abuja Municipal Council Magistrate court where he was secretly arraigned by the DSS. He is, however, yet to fulfil his bail conditions.

According to the Indigenous People of Biafra’s lawyer,  Mr. Egechukwu Obetta, “Nnamdi was put in the same cell with terrorists. He has  a health challenge  which is life threatening. He is sensitive to delicacies. He told us that he will never eat any food served by the Federal Government of Nigeria.“

But midway into Vanguard‘s  chat with the lawyer, a call came in indicating that Kalu has been granted bail in the sum of N2 million  or  with surety of N2 million with a civil servant of grade level 16.

“The DSS secretly arraigned him before the magistrate’s court and he was granted bail. He is, however, yet to meet the bail conditions and that is holding him  still in detention.

“Last week, the Afenifere threatened to secede, but nobody was vilified. I am talking about the recent Olu Falae’s kidnap case. The militants in the Niger Delta have  done same  and at all times, the political gladiators have appealed to the FG to douse the tension instead of using political brigandage and executive lawlessness.”

Meantime, the arrest of Nnamdi Kalu  by the Directorate of State Security, DSS, has continued to elicit diverse opinions.

The apex Igbo organization in Diaspora, Igbo World Assembly, IWA,  condemned the arrest of the Director of  Radio Biafra, weekend, by the Nigeria secret police, the Department of State Services, DSS.

The President of the Diaspora Igbo group in a telephone interview with Vanguard, yesterday, said that every Nigerian has freedom of  speech, adding that the Nigerian government should tell the whole world the offence Kanu hadcommitted.

Similarly,   the   World Igbo Congress, WIC, has  condemned the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, saying that the Federal Government should explain the reasons for his arrest.

The Public Relations Officer  of WIC, Jimmy Asiegbu told Vanguard, yesterday, in a telephone interview that the reasons for the arrest should be made clear.

“While we are yet to know the reasons for his arrest, we pray that it does not have anything to do with his exercising his constitutionally guaranteed freedom of  expression and association. We call on the Federal Government to explain the reasons for his arrest and allow due process to take its course,” Asiegbu noted.

In Imo State, while some citizens were of the opinion that the pirate radio station was over-reaching its bounds, others commended Kalu for unearthing a number of things that were largely unknown to the public.

Speaking to Vanguard, yesterday, on the issue, Mr. Okorie Kalu, described Mr. Nnamdi Kalu as “a freedom fighter.”

In his considered opinion, “the arrest of the freedom fighter by operatives of the DSS, would rather strengthen the resolve of  Ndigbo to continue angling for the Republic of Biafra.”

He advised the Federal Government against tampering with Kalu’s cherished freedom, adding that it was best for the government to avoid doing anything that would heat up the polity.

While denying that he had blood relationship with the embattled citizen, Mr. Kalu also said that “nobody can destroy the Biafran spirit.”

According to Sahara Reporters, former President Goodluck Jonathan has written a personal letter to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Jonathan is said to have written Obasanjo to seek the latter’s blessing for the launch of his personal project; the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation.
