Lurking clown arrested in Kentucky woods near apartments

Kentucky police have arrested a man dressed as a clown lurking in a wooded area amid a wave of clown reports in at least six US states.
Jonathan Martin, 20, was charged with wearing a mask in a public place and disorderly conduct in Middlesboro.
He was found at about 0100 EST (0600 GMT) on Friday in "full clown costume" and mask crouching among trees by an apartment complex, according to police.

Recent reports of clowns trying to lure children into woods have sparked alarm. 
Police have warned individuals against dressing up in clown costumes, adding it could lead to criminal charges.
"Dressing as a clown and driving, walking or standing in public can create a dangerous situation for you and others," police in nearby Barbourville, Kentucky, said in a statement online.
"While dressing up is not, in and of itself against the law, doing so in public and thereby creating an unnecessary sense of alarm is illegal."
Alleged clown encounters have been reported…

Expresso workers to protest over 18 months’ unpaid salary

Workers of telecommunication company Expresso are planning a massive protest, Wednesday, 28 September, 2016 over unpaid salaries.

The workers who have not been paid for 18 months say management has not responded to numerous complaints over the issue.

The company which has gradually become dormant has many of its offices closed nationwide. Rumors were rife that it had been sold.

But its Chief Commercial Officer, Freddie Quainoo has debunked the rumors in a section of the media.

Expresso Telecom acquired 100 per cent of Kasapa Telecom Company in July 2008 of which Sudanese Telecom group, Sudatel now owns 100 per cent of the stake. The fate of workers of Expresso Ghana has been in limbo for about two years as they are without a substantive caretaker or MD, except some Sudatel staff who come in from Sudan or Dubai occasionally.

Currently MTN and Airtel have been compelled to block calls from Expresso over unpaid debts under the Interconnect Clearing House (ICH).

Cristiano Ronaldo gets trolled by the footballer ex-boyfriend of his new girlfriend, former Miss spain, Desire Cordero

Three time World Footballer of the year Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with so many women ever since his high-profile break-up with super model Irina Shayk, in 2014 but none has stuck to the football player as long as former Miss Spain, Desire Cordero, who according to multiple reports in Spain and England has been dating the player for over a month.
The model, Desire Cordero , is rumoured to have moved to Madrid so she can be close to Ronaldo who wooed her through direct messages on Instagram before they started seeing each other.

Before  Desire Cordero started dating Ronaldo, she was dating another footballer, Vincenzo Rennella, a Real Valladolid player who's currently on loan at Miami FC.
Rennella obviously annoyed by reports linking his ex to Cristiano Ronaldo has now taken a swipe at the world's most famous footballer by uploading an IG video mocking Ronaldo’s trademark goal celebration, while the tag-line to his Instagram video read: “I’m in Miami Bitch”.

Facebook 'overestimated' video viewing time

Facebook has overestimated how much video people have watched for the last two years, the firm has admitted
One advertiser suggested that, in some cases, video viewing statistics had been overestimated by up to 80%.
Facebook's analytics are an important tool for advertisers, who use them to work out how much of their video content is being watched.

The social network said the error had been fixed and had not changed how much advertisers paid the site.
'Unacceptable' behaviour
The error affected a Facebook metric called "average duration of video viewed", which was supposed to tell publishers for how long, on average, people had watched a video.
However, the metric did not include viewers who had watched for less than three seconds in the count.
Discounting the shorter views - including people who had ignored a video in their news feed - inflated the average viewing times for each video.
In a statement, Facebook said: "We recently discovered an error in the …

I'll Deport All Chinese Nationals If Elected President - Nduom

The flag bearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, has promised to deport all Chinese nationals engaged in illegal mining activities in the country if he is voted for in the December polls.

There’s been increasing debate about the activities of illegal miners who have been accused of destroying aquatic life, polluting rivers and streams, and destroying forest reserves.

According to Dr Nduom, government lacks the political will in fighting the menace which has caused damage to the environment.

“I will not promise you one district one factory. Small-scale mining by law is reserved for Ghanaians but the Chinese have disobeyed the law and are involved in galamsey. Do we not have a president in this country? If the PPP is given the mandate to govern, I, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, will ensure that Chinese who disobey the law will be deported,” he stated.

Dr Nduom said these while addressing a teeming crowd in the Ejisu-Juaben municipality as part of his tour of…

Ghana Can’t Be Developed In 100 Yrs Under Mahama – Nana Addo

New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo has taken a swipe at President John Mahama, saying he cannot even develop Ghana even in 100 years.

Speaking in Sege in the Greater Accra region, Nana Addo noted the Mahama-led administration has mismanaged the economy and must not be retained.

The polls, slated for December 7, pits the New Patriotic Party flagbearer against incumbent President Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The duo are facing off for the second time after the 2012 elections which was resolved in the Supreme Court.

“If you give Mahama’s government 100 years they can’t do the job,” the former foreign affairs minister told the people of Sege and Ningo during his tour.

Akufo-Addo promised to set up a salt and vegetable factory in Sege “as part of measures to create jobs.”

He also pledged to build a sea defense wall to “protect lives and properties” if he comes to power.

Akufo-Addo is on a four-day campaign tour of the Greater Accra region.
