5 police officers shot in Kumawu

Five police officers have been injured in Kumawu Bodomase in the Ashanti region following renewed chieftaincy clashes.
The Ashanti regional police command has deployed a joint police and military force to the troubled area to restore law and order.
The melee is between factions of Berimah Sarfo Tweneboah Kodua II – a self-acclaimed paramount chief of Kumawu and Kumawu Queen Mother Nana Serwaa Ampomaa.
The clashes began during the funeral of the late Kumawu Akyempenghene Nana Okyere Krampah after a queen mother who belongs to a faction of Berimah Tweneboah Kodua V allegedly ordered the police to stop Berimah Sarfo Tweeneboah Kodua II from attending the funeral in his capacity as Kumawuhene.

BMW built a full-size flying motorcycle that's based on a Lego kit

Any fan of Lego has at some point or another created some awesome machine that they wished could have been a real full-sized version. Most of us don't have the resources to make that happen, but BMW Motorrad does. Enter the new Hover Ride Concept. It's not just some digital mock-up either. 
The display piece will debut this week at Lego World in Copenhagen, Denmark, before traveling to other locations like BMW Group Research and Innovation Center Munich and BMW Welt.
According to Autoblog, the project originally started off as a collaboration between Lego and BMW Motorrad, the German automaker's motorcycle division, for a 603-piece BMW R 1200 GS Adventure kit. Many Lego kits are what the company calls a 2 in 1, where one set of Lego pieces can be styled into two finished products. For the R 1200 GS, the second kit was a futuristic flying motorcycle. The team at BMW Motorrad had so much fun working with Lego that the group decided to craft a full-scale model.

Lifestyle:HR TODAY: Minimizing workplace negativity

Negativity at the workplace can happen at the blind side of management. It happens so fast that if care is not taken it creeps deep into the entire business. Nothing affects the morale of employees more severely than insistent negativity at the workplace.
It drains the energy of your employees and diverts critical attention from work, productivity and performance. Negativity can ensue from the attitudes, viewpoints and presumably the talk of just an individual, or in a crescendo of voices of people with similar interest snapping to a business decision or activity at the workplace.
It is therefore the responsibility of HR professionals to identify this cancer and quickly avert it, since we have a very close relationship with employees which sometimes affects personal dealings. Negativity can be manifested in exit interviews, culture surveys, staff fora’s and employee complaints. It exposes the actual reputation of the business. The 360 feedback sessions, intranet use amongst …

Majority of the youth today are going through a tough situation whereby the elders/parents want to decide all for them in life. Many have been through such and couldn't do anything about it therefore they accepted the decision was made just as it is.  Many are not happy at where they are, what they are into and many more. This issue or situation is highly experienced in Africa. It all starts when a young boy or girl is about to enter into the SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL. Whereby he or she wants to read General Arts but his parents or guardian insist he or she offers General Science which they normally speak out of experience and their comfort zones based on what they are seeing or let say one of the parents is a doctor therefore he or she sees the need for the ward to read or offer a program which at the end of the day sometimes ends up in something the ward never thought off.  This issue is really taking place whereby solution to it is very difficult to come by just because th…

Samsung boss arrested in South Korea’s explosive corruption scandal

Samsung’s de facto head, Lee Jae-yong, was arrested in Seoul on Friday morning on charges of bribery over his alleged role in an explosive corruption scandal that has riveted South Korea.
The 48-year-old heir apparent to the Samsung empire was taken into custody after the courts, which had rejected a special prosecutor’s first request, granted a second request to issue a warrant for his detention.
That means that both the head of South Korea’s largest conglomerate and the country’s president have fallen — at least temporarily — in the widening scandal that revolves around allegations of bribery and influence at the highest levels.

“The rationale for and the necessity of his arrest is acknowledged considering the new charges and additional evidence collected,” Seoul Central District Court said in a text message sent to reporters, according to the Yonhap News Agency.

In a one-line statement, Samsung said: “We will do our best to ensure that the truth is revealed in future court p…

Federal judge dismisses Massachusetts defamation lawsuit against Cosby

According to Reuters, A federal judge in Massachusetts on Thursday dismissed a defamation lawsuit against Bill Cosby by an actress who claimed he raped her, ruling that the comedian acted within his rights when he proclaimed himself innocent of the crime.

The civil lawsuit is one of a slew of cases brought against the actor, best known for playing the father in the 1980s television hit "The Cosby Show," by about 50 women who say he sexually assaulted them, often after plying them with drugs and alcohol, in a series of alleged attacks dating back decades.
The vast bulk of the claims are too old to be the subject of a criminal prosecution, though Cosby is also awaiting trial in Pennsylvania on charges he sexually assaulted a former basketball coach at his alma mater, Temple University.
Cosby has denied wrongdoing in all the cases.
U.S. District Judge Mark Mastroianni wrote on Thursday that accuser Katherine Mae McKee had not demonstrated that Cosby defamed her simply by …
