Daily Graphic journalist beaten by Asamoah Gyans brother gets sacked PDF Print E-mail

When refuse dump becomes the Smokers ‘Paradise’ PDF Print E-mail

Many substance abusers in Aflao-Dekeme have pitched camp close to the biggest refuse dump in the area, a situation that has left many residents in utter shock.
Over 150 smokers sit for many hours close to a refuse dump to smoke banned substances such as Indian hemp, heroin and cocaine in the full

glare of the public at a spot they commonly refer to as the ‘base’.
This group of young men, mostly in their twenties appears not to be bothered by the pungent smell which emanates from the refuse dump and which ironically serves as place of convenience for several residents.

Unlike other places where smokers of banned substances practice their trade in secrecy, the situation is different here at Dekeme where the smokers practice their trade in public and pride themselves as members of the smoking fraternity.
The failure of Ketu South Municipal assembly to clear this 36-year old refuse dump has perhaps given respite to the smokers.

 
British stars gather to record Band Aid single for Ebola PDF Print E-mail

Boy band One Direction and U2 lead singer Bono joined some of the biggest names in British pop and rock music on Saturday to record a new version of the Band Aid charity song to raise money to combat Ebola in Africa.

The single, "Do They Know It's Christmas?", was first recorded 30 years ago after musician and philanthropist Bob Geldof inspired a host of stars to come together under the Band Aid name to help those affected by famine in Ethiopia.
The song has been given a makeover, with words to the original version which he co-wrote with Midge Ure changed to reflect the current crisis.

"The record, it's a song, it's a track but it's an event, and the next stage now is to turn it into a phenomenon like it was in the 80s," Geldof told BBC TV as he arrived at a recording studio in west London.
He said he had spoken to British finance minister George Osborne who had agreed to forego the usual tax owed to the government from sales of the record.

Congestion at Mfantsipim SHS; students sleep on trunks PDF Print E-mail

Students of the Mfantsipim Senior High School in the Central region say they are unable to study well because of lack of sleeping places in the school.
The school has become congested because authorities have been admitting students beyond the quota given them. As a result, students, in pairs, sleep on trunks and chop boxes in the night.

Joy News' investigations have revealed that the situation has persisted for some time now while authorities of the school look on unconcerned.

Joy News’ Richard Kwadwo Nyarko slipped into one of the dormitories, dressed in his prep wear and entered the dormitory with the students who were returning from preps at about 9pm. The students chat among themselves heartily as they prepare to beat the light out time.
