12-Year-Old Singer, Aspiring Brain Surgeon, Has Big Dreams

first_imgTracey Danielle Jones debuted on the music scene at the age when little girls begin sewing clothes for their Barbie dolls and playing house – at just eight years old.Instead, young Tracey was working hard on releasing her first album ‘Just Like You’, a great compilation of music that sub-consciously began when she was just two years old. From listening to songs being played in the car during car rides with her parents Victor Daniel Jones and Maryann Roberts Jones, to then singing along with these songs, Tracey grew her musical gift, not knowing she was turning herself into a gifted gospel artist that today is the proud owner of two albums and five awards.A video of her version of Whitney Houston’s “I Look to You” made social media followers around the world fall in love with the voice of a little angel, who by then could sing any gospel song as beautifully as the song writers themselves.Having been discovered, Tracey was invited to Liberia on tour in August of 2012, a first time experience for the child, who had never seen her parents’ homeland. In Liberia, she met other Liberian children of all ages, ministers and Vice President Joseph Boakai.With her newly released album ‘Give Your Praise’ and her stunning change in appearance during her emergence at the Liberian Entertainment Awards ceremony, Tracey is the talk of the town.You should probably know who she is:Who is Tracey?Tracey Danielle Jones was born in Bensalem, Pennsylvania (USA), and she is the daughter of two Liberian refugees. She has three brothers and a 19-year-old sister. Tracey was discovered by the Liberian community when she published her version of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Look to You’, which has close to half a million views on YouTube and thousands of likes.“Other than singing, I also want to become a brain surgeon. In order for me to become that, I need high grades, and that requires high studies,” the 12-year-old told LIB Life. “Since 2012 when I left Liberia, I’ve released my second album, ‘Give Your Praise’, and I’ve won five musical awards off the album.” Her father tells LIB Life that she is an honor roll student, scoring all A’s in the 7th grade. As parents, he and the child’s mother are just encouraging her to do what she loves to do with her career, Tracy’s father, Victor Jones said. We [stress the importance of] her education and teach her to be a good child.”When asked how she fits her career in with school, Tracey replied confidently, “When I come from school, I find something to eat and then I study. I usually don’t perform while school is open, and perform while school is closed, and only take piano lessons on the weekend.” Why is everybody talking about her?Tracey’s angelic voice has created a demand in the Liberian community, who want to hear more from her. Her 2012 Liberia tour set the record straight that what viewers heard on her ‘I Look to You’ version on YouTube was indeed bona fide.But being the youngest Liberian gospel artist, people were buzzing about her way before her tour to Liberia. Tracy has received the most awards as a child singer than any other Liberian child singer.“I actually love to sing and my parents don’t force me to sing but encourage me to do it. As long as I have stuff to play and have time for myself, singing is okay,” Tracey told LIB Life.What has Tracey been up to?“I’ve established my foundation called the Tracey Foundation to raise money to build a children’s hospital. During the Ebola crisis, I sent clothes and food through an organization in Liberia; and now I’m still raising money and selling CDs to build the hospital,” she explained.“I would like to give encouraging words to those who want to become somebody,” the 12-year-old, ultra mature for her age, concluded her interview with LIB Life. “Young children, if someone is telling you that you can’t do something, just continue going forward because you’re going to make it.”The young singer and philanthropist is appealing to Liberians of good will, development partners and the Liberian Government for 15 to 20 acres of land (gratis or at reasonable price) on which to build the Tracey Foundation Children’s Hospital. Donors and volunteers are welcome. The Tracey Foundation is open to partnering with churches, organizations and individuals. She has already started fundraising through concert tours and selling lemonade and chocolate bars at various Wal-Marts in North Carolina.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Littleknown among consumers Huawei has high profile in Canadian tech networks

first_imgTORONTO — Before the arrest of Huawei Technologies’ chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver last weekend, the Chinese company wasn’t a household name in Canada — certainly not in the league of an Apple, Samsung or BlackBerry.However, the Chinese tech giant considered by several of Canada’s allies as a security threat has quietly established itself as an important provider of technology essential to Canada’s telecom infrastructure, a situation that is not likely to change any time soon.  Huawei’s share of the Canadian smartphone market has been tiny — about 3.8 per cent, according to market research from IDC Canada — but outside of Canada the company is a juggernaut, overtaking Apple earlier this year in smartphone sales and employing more than 170,000 people around the world.Founded in 1987 by a former officer of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, the company has grown at an explosive rate over the past ten years and is projected to post sales of more than US$102 billion in 2018.For Canada’s telecom industry and the federal government in Ottawa, Huawei has long been known as an important equipment supplier — one that U.S. officials consider a significant threat to national security.That’s largely because Huawei is a major supplier of the equipment needed for wireless networks that could potentially be used to gather sensitive information for the Chinese government.“There is ample evidence to suggest that no major Chinese company is independent of the Chinese government and Communist Party — and Huawei, which China’s government and military tout as a ‘national champion’ is no exception,” U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Marco Rubio wrote in October in a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.However, Canadian officials and representatives of major telecom companies have maintained that they have put safeguards in place — long ago, and before the American alarm — to ensure Huawei isn’t a security or privacy threat.Like Canada, the United Kingdom hasn’t moved to ban Huawei from doing business with their networks — despite U.S. warnings that they may be jeopardizing the “Five Eyes” intelligence gathering partnership. Lawrence Surtees, vice-president for communications research at IDC Canada, says Britain and Canada are the second and third most important Five Eyes partners after the United States and ahead of Australia and New Zealand.“My take is, both Ottawa and London are in a position to say … we do lots with you in the intelligence sharing and we’re not going to jeopardize our networks. We know what to do.”Surtees says Huawei equipment has already been used in at least five Canadian wireless networks that use fourth-generation LTE technology, and it would be expensive to replace.Huawei is also working with Bell and Telus to develop equipment for 5G wireless networks that are expected to become increasingly vital to carriers and their customers over the next decade.“The magnitude of the contracts that Huawei has here would be a factor, with the Canadian carriers saying to Ottawa that it’s kind of too late now,” Surtees says.There are very few alternative suppliers of 5G network equipment to chose from, he adds.Ericsson of Sweden, the main equipment supplier for the Rogers wireless networks, and Nokia of Finland are also global players in Canada but Surtees considers Huawei to be the market leader.It has been in operation in Canada since 2008, and currently employs about 960 people in this country — about 600 in research and development.Huawei’s Canadian head office is in the Toronto area in Markham, Ont. while its Canada Research Centre is based in Ottawa. The company also has research facilities in Markham, Waterloo, Ont., Montreal, Vancouver and Edmonton.Huawei also makes smartphones for current wireless networks, sold in Canada by Bell, Rogers, Telus, and Videotron under their main brands as well as some secondary brands such as Virgin Mobile, Fido and Koodo.David Paddon, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Two Hindu Sena men arrested for forcibly shutting meat shops

first_imgGururgam: Four days after Hindu Sena men, armed with rods, sticks, and swords, forced meat shops to close in wake of the Navratri, Gurugram police have arrested another two accused, including a history-sheeter with 19 cases registered against him.The duo has been identified as Rajesh and Pramod. Rajesh, earlier, has been booked under 420 (theft), 120 (criminal conspiracy) 279 (rash driving), 337 (endangering the safety of others) of the Indian penal code. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderEarlier the law enforcement officials had arrested Rakesh and Mohit in the case and were charged under sections 148 (rioting with deadly weapons), 149 (unlawful assembly), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 25-54-59 of the arms act. While the police continue to cracks down on the rogue elements, most of the citizens have defied the meat ban in the city. There are shops and restaurants which are selling their inventories as a sizable number of customers are coming to buy non-vegetarian items. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsHowever, certain big shops, which are registered with Gurugram meat market union, have closed their shutter for Navratri and have also announced that their shops will be closed on every Tuesday. Owners of these meat units have maintained that they have taken this decision out of respect for religious sentiments than fear of rogue outfits. “Some of my colleagues decided to not open their shops during Navratras as they felt it was not appropriate for them to hurt the religious sentiments. But, I have decided to open my shop as I have been getting customers from all religious communities. Ultimately it depends upon your choice and intent. Who are we to hurt any one’s religious sentiments,” said Shakib who operates a meat shop near Jama Masjid in Sadar Bazaar area. Additionally, most of the small meat shops have decided not to buckle under fear, and continue with their business. At the Sikanderpur meat mandi, there are meat units open even in scorching heat. “We do not have proper space for selling our items. For many, the place may be unhygienic and dirty. But, the Sikanderpur Mandi has its loyal customers. The meat sellers over here have not buckled under the fear of powerful builders. How can we be cowed down by few rogue elements?” said Tariq. Not far from the meat mandi, the famous roadside Biryani restaurants were also functioning in Sikanderpur area. “We have been getting a lot of customers even during Navratras. Even though there is a slight reduction at the end of the day, we still break even during Navratras,” said Ashfaq, an employee at Al-Shaifa Biryani restaurant.last_img read more

Mens Hockey Ohio State buries Denver late in 51 victory to send

Ohio State junior forward Dakota Joshua celebrates his second period goal against Denver in the NCAA Tournament on March 25, 2018. Credit: Nick Hudak | Lantern photographerALLENTOWN, Pa. — After a regular season in which junior forward Mason Jobst and sophomore forward Tanner Laczynski led the Ohio State men’s hockey team in points, the team’s seniors powered it to the program’s first Frozen Four appearance since 1998.Senior forward Kevin Miller scored two of the Buckeyes’ five goals in a 5-1 victory against No. 2 Denver (23-10-8) in Allentown, Pennsylvania, on Sunday to send No. 1 Ohio State (26-9-5) to Saint Paul, Minnesota, to face No. 3 Minnesota Duluth.“It feels really good right now, but as you can see in college hockey the parity is off the charts. It’s not going to get any easier,” head coach Steve Rohlik said. “We’re going to enjoy this tonight, we just beat one of the best teams in the country, but we know we have to be at our best here in two weeks.”Joining Miller on the score sheet was senior defenseman Matt Joyaux, who netted his second goal of the season in the third period, and senior forward Christian Lampasso, who assisted on both of Miller’s goals.“Lampasso made two really good passes to me,” Miller said. “I get two goals combined and I think I only had the puck on my stick for half a second, so pretty fortunate to have two tap-ins.”After a deadlocked opening period that featured minimal chances on both ends, Ohio State found daylight at the hands of junior forward Dakota Joshua, who backhanded a shot past senior goalie Tanner Jaillet to give the Buckeyes a 1-0 lead.“I was just trying to get a stick on it,” Joshua said. “It was a battle in front, and I just got lucky, and it found the back of the net.”Ohio State came into the game 12-0-1 when scoring first this season, an unbeaten record that remained unblemished once again against the Pioneers. The Buckeyes doubled their lead later in the period in the same fashion they scored their first goal. Senior forward Christian Lampasso got the puck to the middle and fed Miller, who found space to get off a backhand shot which beat Jaillet high to put Ohio State up 2-0.Denver controlled much of the possession early in the third period, but Laczynski added to the lead anyway after stealing the puck and making a pass to a wide-open Matt Joyaux, and the senior defenseman buried his second goal of the season.The Pioneers answered back with a goal from sophomore forward Tyson McLellan to cut the lead to two. But it took only 30 seconds for Ohio State to answer with another goal by Miller.“It was huge,” Miller said. “You can see that they felt like they had some momentum, so it was pretty huge for us to come back and score real quick and try to shut down their momentum.”Jobst scored an empty-net goal when Denver decided to pull Jaillet with more than six minutes remaining, all but sealing the defeat of the Pioneers and ending their pursuit of a second NCAA title in a row.Ohio State advances to the Frozen Four and will play Minnesota Duluth, the team that defeated the Buckeyes in the opening round last season.“Last year we thought we played a really good game against them,” Miller said. “[We] came up a little short, so it’ll be nice to, hopefully, find some redemption and beat them in two weeks time.” read more

Arthur loves playing next to Coutinho and Casemiro

first_imgAfter winning the match against Argentina, Brazilian midfielder Arthur expressed how happy he feels playing beside Casemiro and Coutinho.During the last World Cup in Russia, Brazil really missed a midfielder who could protect the ball like Arthur Melo did and could let both Casemiro and Coutinho play more liberated in their positions.This Tuesday in the South American Clasico between Brazil and Argentina, we got our first glimpse at what we can expect from Arthur when he reaches his top form.Brazil played a really complicated match against Argentina this Tuesday, they barely got to defeat the Albiceleste without Lionel Messi and a great deal of that victory is thanks to the work that Arthur did alongside Casemiro and Philippe Coutinho.Melo already gets to practice with Coutinho in Barcelona, he will also get to play many matches alongside him and maybe even form a dynasty that can win many trophies in the Catalan club.However, the connection with Casemiro just started this Tuesday and Arthur was ecstatic for getting the chance to share the field with a world-class defensive midfielder like the Madridista against Argentina.⏱ FINAL: Argentina 0-1 Brazil (Miranda) Coutinho and Arthur played the whole game #fcblive #SuperClásico pic.twitter.com/WMQhNwwraS— FC Barcelona Fl 🏆 (@FCBarcelonaFl) October 16, 2018Arthur was part of the squad that defeated the Albiceleste from the very beginning, he played a fairly good match in an evening that a single goal scored by Miranda during the second half gave Brazil the victory in the end.“I am very happy with my personal performance and with the overall collective achievement that we made today,” said Arthur via Diario Sport after Brazil’s victory against Argentina on Tuesday.“I have played with confidence and a very relaxed thanks to my teammates, who believe in my work. I do believe we are building a great squad and playing alongside players of the likes of Casemiro and Philippe Coutinho makes things a lot easier.”“It is always great being able to defeat Argentina, and even better than I did it on my first Clasico I played against them. Plus, there was a trophy on the line. Every single player loves being a part of huge matches like this one.”Neither the heat nor the pitch can be an excuse to not perform in a match like this one, but we did find some difficulties because Argentina is a very tough opponent and they have a fantastic squad,” he concluded.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.🇧🇷 Arthur Melo during training with Brazil #fcblive #SuperClásico pic.twitter.com/f4IXKT0YRa— FC Barcelona Fl 🏆 (@FCBarcelonaFl) October 16, 2018Arthur’s return to BarcelonaThis match must have been a revelation for both the player and manager Ernesto Valverde, who was very focused on watching his midfielder with the greatest potential in Barcelona.There is still no clue of who the boss will use for this Saturday’s La Liga match against Sevilla, but Valverde surely does have the intention of getting Arthur more minutes during this stage of the season.Barcelona’s defensive problems might also be beneficial for the Brazilian, because the manager will use his more defensive midfield players as center-backs in the next couple of months and Arthur doesn’t make that cut.The gaffer has plans of using Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal in that position, which will leave Melo a greater role as the game constructor that he is for very important matches that are coming within the next month at least.The absence of Thomas Vermaelen which was confirmed last week, will give everybody a much more important role at Barcelona and Arthur will be no different from the rest of his teammates.#Superclássico 🏆🇧🇷📷 Lucas Figueiredo / CBF pic.twitter.com/r8evyGWh3V— CBF Futebol (@CBF_Futebol) October 16, 2018What do you think about Arthur Melo’s upcoming role in FC Barcelona’s next couple of months?

Former Scotland striker says fans should behave

first_imgAccording to ex-Celtic forward Andy Walker, the Scottish government might be forced to intervene if the clubs cannot force their fans to behave well.During the 2018-2019 season, there has been a lot of talk about the supporters’ behavior in the Scottish Premier League.There have been a lot of incidents of racist abuse, fans throwing objects at players and referees, and even fights between the fanatics.This is why former Celtic and Scotland national team striker Andy Walker has said that maybe the Scottish government will have to be involved.“When you see stuff like bottles, coconuts, lighters, coins coming onto the pitch, they could be hitting fellow supporters. We’ve had one that’s hit a linesman, we’ve got players that are under threat,” he said to Sky Sports.Mikey Johnston, CelticJohnston is disappointed after being injured Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team’s victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.“I feel for the clubs. If you are an individual and you are determined to throw something on the pitch, then I think you’re going to do that. I don’t know what the clubs can do about it.”“I think we’ve had so much fan misbehavior this season. We’ve also got a problem with pyrotechnics, despite the clubs continually telling their supporters not to do it,” he added.“I do fear at some stage it will be taken out of the clubs’ hands and the government will intervene. That will mean, after a couple of steps, they might end up closing a stand.”“I think that’s the road we’re going down because supporters just aren’t listening,” he continued.“I think the vast majority of supporters just want to go and watch the football, but some of the individuals are hell-bent on causing trouble. I don’t know what you can do about it.”last_img read more
