first_imgThere have been a lot of up-to-date songs in the Liberian music industry, and many artists are currently garnering huge attention, even if they are receiving very little from their work. To give an example of just a few songs that have been making headways in the music industry, LIB Life is presenting a list of five most popular songs that have been storming the airwaves.Top five songs for the week ending August 16, 2015.1. Grace by Soul Fresh Ft Quincy B2. More Fire by Mr. Smith3. Kemah by DenG4. Bartenders By F.A5. Crazy by Quincy BLet’s start with fifth place Quincy B’s newest single “Crazy”. It is a mixture of Afro pop and catchy colloquial. Produced by Quincy B himself, the 21 year-old artist’s vocal ability is prolific.In an interview a few months back and before the release of the song Quincy B said, “This is the first time I’m in love and don’t know how to express it. So I think expressing it through music will let my fans know that Quincy has fallen in love; and I’m just trying to appreciate my fiancée for the love she is giving me.”The Fourth place song for this weekend is “Bartender” by F.A. This song has accelerated to more than 5,000 thousand views on YouTube alone. DenG is well known for making hit songs and since debuting in the industry on a song by Queen V, “Jue You Bad,” he has managed to maintain his place at the top. Holding the third-place slot is his song, “Kemah”, a smash hit among the ladies. Since its release over five months ago it has remained unbeatable. But there are two things you may not know about DenG: he won four major awards in a single year for the song “They Vex”. Yet there are no official video of all these hits song he has made.Grabbing second place is Mr. Smith with “More fire.” This song has been garnering international recognition, and during its first month of release it debuted on Sound City in Nigeria and went West Africa chart 10 places respectively.Mr. Smith is currently in Nigeria, trying to break into the industry, and is working hard on a new album called “The Street Music”.Soul Fresh,the hottest musical group in the nation is holding first place with “Grace” featuring Quincy B. The song reflects the mercy of God on the artists in spite of their celebrity lifestyle.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Liverpool transfer news: Balotelli OUT, one of these FIVE strikers IN?

first_img 3. The powerhouse centre forward – Christian Benteke (Aston Villa) – Aston Villa are unlikely to want to part with their strike star having seen him batter home 37 goals in just 79 games since he joined from Genk. With money tight and the squad needing additions Paul Lambert may be tempted to cash in though and Benteke could be the perfect remedy for Bredan Rodgers’ striker problems. 2. One of Europe’s in-form strikers – Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon) – If you think Alexis Sanchez is on form then you haven’t been paying attention at events across the Channel. French forward Lacazette, 23, has scored an astonishing 19 goals in 20 games for Lyon, who sit top of Ligue 1, and made five assists too. It would be a huge statement of intent if Liverpool could land the hotshot by Lyon are unlikely to let him leave without a fight. 6 6 6 6 5. A South American sensation – Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli) – Liverpool may have another reason to thank Rafa Benitez if they can pull off this coup. Napoli have just landed Manolo Gabbiadini from Sampdoria and this deal has raised question marks about Higuain’s future. The Argentine has hit nine Serie A goals and made three assists in his 18 appearances this season and a bid of £30million could see him switch Naples for Merseyside. Mario Balotelli could be leaving Liverpool in January as Juventus plot a £14million raid for the striker, but who could the Reds sign to boost their goal scoring options? Take a look at the targets – just click to the next slide using the yellow arrow above! It looks like Mario Balotelli’s second spell in England could be close to an end as Juvenus plot a £14million move for the Liverpool star.Just two goals in 18 appearances so far is a miserable return on a £16million outlay so when Brendan Rodgers moves for his replacement he will be looking for more value for money.Saido Berahino is one of several players linked with a switch to Anfield to take Balotelli’s spot in the Merseysiders’ squad, but who else is Rodgers looking to? Take a look at the slideshow above.Who would you like to replace Balotelli? Comment below… 4. The English starlet – Saido Berahino (West Brom) – The newly crowned England Under-21 player of the year is one of the rising stars of the Premier League and after hitting nine goals last campaign has proceeded to score 14 already this time out. His talents in front of goal couldn’t save Alan Irvine but they could propel Liverpool back into the top four if Brendan Rodgers decides to swoop. 6 6 1. The cut-price gamble – Ezequiel Lavezzi (Paris Saint-Germain) – It hasn’t been a vintage campaign for the Argentine international, having scored twice in 13 appearances across the Channel. This has been compounded by a two game suspension after he and Edinson Cavani returned late from their Christmas holidays. Available for around £8million, Lavezzi could be an inspired signing but is also a risky move considering his current attitude. Now where have we heard that before?last_img read more

Hibs complete signing of defender Adam Jackson

first_img“I’m really pleased we have been able to get the deal for Adam over the line,” the manager told the club’s official website.“The fact it’s come so early in the summer is hopefully indicative of the work that has gone on and is going on behind the scenes here. It also shows Adam’s own enthusiasm to play for Hibernian.“I know all about Adam’s qualities having signed him in the first place for Barnsley and he was one I was set on bringing to Easter Road.“Adam initially caught my eye when he excelled at a young age in League Two with Hartlepool United and I watched him for a long time before signing him for Barnsley. Hibernian have announced their second signing of the summer, adding defender Adam Jackson to Paul Heckingbottom’s squad.Jackson joins under freedom of contract after reaching the end of his deal at Barnsley, where he played for three seasons.The 25-year old completed a medical at Hibs’ training ground and joins Scott Allan in committing to the club for next season.Jackson will be reunited with Heckingbottom, who signed him at Oakwell. “Adam has a real physical presence. He is strong in the air and understands how we want to defend and how we look to play out from the back. So, he’s ideally suited to the way we like to play.”Jackson took in the final Edinburgh derby of the season and said he was eager to get started in the Scottish Premiership. “I’m delighted to be joining Hibernian,” he said. “With the stature of the club and having worked with Paul previously it was a no-brainer for me.“I know what he expects of me and I know what I can deliver for him.“I obviously got a glimpse of what to expect when I was up for the game against Hearts and I’m looking forward to experience it all myself when I report back with the rest of the boys in three weeks.”last_img read more

Risinger Pleads Not-Guilty to Murder

first_imgThe body was found in the living room of the trailer. Washington County Circuit Judge Larry Medlock assigned Andrew Wright to represent Risinger. Risinger remains charged with only one count of Murder, a Class A Felony. Earlier today the Prosecutor’s office said they chose to file only murder charge at this time because it appears that the fire was started with the intent to kill. Risinger is currently being held at the Washington County Detention Center without bail. The Kentucky Medical Examiner did an autopsy on the body recovered from the fire on Wednesday and was not able to determine a cause of death or an identity. Further testing will be done to make a determination. Salem Fire Chief Tom Day said he was working with the State Fire Marshall to determine a cause of the fire. The pre-trial conference has been set for April 20 at 9a. The jury trial has been set for Oct. 3 at 8:30a. 28-year-old Joshua Risinger pled not-guilty this afternoon in Washington County Circuit Court to a murder charge he’s facing after he told police he set fire to his trailer at Southway Villa Mobile Home Park Tuesday night. A dead body was found in the remnants of the fire. Police are still investigating to find out who the body is. Their only clue is that Risinger told ISP Detectives he had started the fire to kill “Gilbert” who had apparently been living there. last_img read more

Web-Based QR Business Cards Make Networking Feel Human Again

first_imgjon mitchell Spearhead Development has launched an all-new version of its QR Card Us product today. QR Card Us provides customers with a custom-printed business card that contains a QR (quick response) code, allowing smartphone users to quickly scan their contact information. Whereas the first version of QR Card Us displayed a large QR code that contained an entire encoded vCard of one’s contact information, the new QR Card contains a small code that’s just a Web link. The Web page displays the contact’s information, links to websites, one-click connections to social media and the option to save a vCard via email. Anyone can type in an email address, but signing up for a free Spearhead account allows email saving with one click.By moving from a direct vCard scan to a Web link, QR Card can now provide users with detailed analytics to measure the effectiveness of their networking. But if this sounds like some robotic, dystopian vision of the future, with people scanning each other’s bar codes instead of shaking hands, you’ve got the wrong idea. Michael Schade, 19-year-old creator of QR Card Us, has designed this whole experience around getting the contact exchange out of the way, so people can concentrate on getting to know each other. “Existing technologies are great in their initial idea of making things automatic,” Schade says, “but unfortunately, the technology tends to get in the way of real-world communication, and we want to get rid of that. It should make things better, not make it harder to connect.”Making Technology Accessible For EveryoneSchade, based in St. Louis, MO, has been a technology consultant since he was in 7th grade. He and his mother, Dina Fanetti, co-founded Spearhead Development in 2006. Spearhead consults with businesses to help them take advantage of Web technologies. “She and I are best friends,” Schade says. “We work really well together. She’s from the print world; she’s great at laying things out and advertising, and I immerse myself in tech.” Schade says this balance leads to solutions that consider both physical and digital business concerns. He and Fanetti have experimented with their approach in support of local St. Louis businesses, and this launch of the new version of QR Card Us is their foray into the wider world. “We’re looking to launch a service that is nationwide and eventually worldwide,” Schade says.“We want to make sure this technology is accessible,” says Schade. Spearhead is used to customers with a range of experience with new technologies, and Schade expects many less savvy users “won’t care about analytics.” But the flexibility of the Web platform makes advanced uses possible, while the simplicity of the scanning and the interface accommodates users at all levels. “The mission of Spearhead as a whole,” he says, “is making technology accessible for everyone.” Related Posts QR Card FeaturesQR Card Us began in April as an experiment, Schade says, “to see how people react to the QR Card idea.” The first version of the card was large, in order to embed the data from the whole vCard into the QR code, and Schade says the card’s size was one of customers’ most frequent complaints. The new version addresses that problem, but it’s also much more powerful, since the Web link enables one-click connections to Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook, as well as analytics. Anyone who scans the card can enter an email address to save the contact. For logged-in Spearhead users (accounts are free for anyone), the contact saves automatically, so all they have to do is scan. They can get right back to talking to the person and download the contact info later.Another advantage of the Web service, Schade says, is that it allows Spearhead to quickly add new features via the Web form, without requiring customers to order new cards. On the order form, QR Card Us allows for a few customizable font, color, and layout choices that will match between the physical card and the Web form. At launch, there will be four layout choices available. A “Made with http://qrcard.us” tag is available to allow customers to “show their love” as well as direct new customers to the service, Schade says, but it’s optional.An Experiment With QR Codes We’ve covered other digital business card solutions that use a variety of technologies, but no one approach has caught on in the real world. We’ve taken some apps for a testdrive, and the results were okay, but the interaction was still awkward. There are so many barriers, from bad interfaces to required third-party applications, that can turn the encounter into more trouble than it’s worth. By slimming down to just a Web link to a page of one-click options, QR Card Us can get the exchange over with in a snap.Many existing solutions scan business cards using optical character recognition, just reading the text on the card, instead of QR codes. The main advantage of OCR is that no one has to get a new business card. But OCR can make mistakes, and it can’t convey some data, like profile pictures, that QR codes and Web links can handle easily.The use of QR codes in mobile computing is on the rise, but the latest studies show that they’re still mostly being put to old-school use. Most businesses seem to be using QR codes to pick the low-hanging fruit, reaching wealthy young consumers with traditional marketing efforts, mostly as supplements to products.But QR Card Us is built around the interaction, not just the newfangled technology. It’s designed not to call attention to the futuristic barcode but to get it scanned, saved, and put away. Does this sound like a good way to network to you? Let us know in the comments.
