Joe Baby on Ebola: “A Big Kill To Our Industry”

first_imgMovie star/director/producer Joseph C. Weah Jr., commonly known as ‘Joe Baby’, feels this whole deadly Ebola outbreak is as bad as it seems.”This whole thing on Ebola is actually confusing. Ebola is real and you can’t doubt the fact. What I think is happening in our society is the goverment is trying to play some game here too,” he stated.Joe Baby is known for roles in hit motion pictures including “A man’s heart”, “Cimplications”, “Prejudice”,  “Desperate hours”, “Lines of Deception” and a recent movie called “Justice Denied”.  He has also been utterly silent about his take on Ebola and how it has affected entertainment as a whole.“Its bad for us the entertainers because this Ebola outbreak has taken us back almost five to 10 years. Everything we’ve built up in the industry has gone back five years because now if any investor comes, they have to sit and observe the country to make sure it is totally eradicated. Ebola will send our job, country and whole economy backwards,” he says.LIB Life caught up with Joe Baby during a recent visit to 146 Block, a popular hangout spot for entertainers, a place where you can catch up and see all of your favorite stars. The Liberian movie heartthrob gave us his two cents about this whole Ebola outbreak.LIB LIFE: Joe Baby, Ebola is real. What have you been doing to keep safe?JOE BABY: Just taking precautions like how we have been. We the actors have paused every production, and we’re observing this whole Ebola stuff until we can get assurance that Ebola has left Liberia.LIB LIFE: You seem very unhappy, which is okay, because we all are.JOE BABY: To be honest, Ebola is a big kill to our industry; it has done a lot of damage. We tried to work a lot of deals with investors to come over, and because of Ebola being in the country, they say they can’t come. It’s too frustrating.LIB LIFE: Do you think there’s anything else we can make do other than keeping clean and away from people who have it?JOE BABY: We don’t have any power; we’re not the government and can’t make the last decision or the first. All you need to do is take the necessary measures in keeping it out.What we the entertainers are doing to affect the community positively is what we’ve been doing through entertainment all along. We’re trying to give people a future to become whatever they want to be in this industry, despite the Ebola outbreak. We did an all-star Ebola song involving almost all artists, producers and engineers to send our own message in our own way.LIB LIFE: Before I let you go, can you tell me your personal take on this deadly Ebola virus that has forced its way into our lives?JOE BABY: I personally observed that there’s some trick going on. I think this thing is far beyond Ebola.LIB LIFE: Does it have anything to do with the shooting death of the late Shaki Kamara?JOE BABY: I’m terribly hurt deeply by the killing of Shaki Kamara! I listen to disturbing the Peace on Hott FM and was deeply hurt when I heard a minister trying to defend his death. I can say that the whole world saw what happened and because of it, everyone’s eyes are now open at what happened. It’s a sensitive thing.LIB LIFE: You’re right. Why do you think this whole thing runs further then Ebola?JOE BABY: Ebola shouldn’t have anything to do with gun business, or security being on the Atlantic Ocean with arms. I mean, people being shot and the killing of a child was totally wrong. We all know what Ebola is about, we’ve all been aware. But I think this thing is far beyond Ebola.Ebola is Ebola, what we need to do is get the rightful people who are going to get the rightful stuff that will stop Ebola. Not to have gunmen depriving people of not coming this far and so on. You can quarantine a polluted area where the virus is, there’s a way to do it, but not the way people here with arms are going about it.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

JC notes: Vikes line up for SCC hoop honors

first_imgTresvant, a Cabrillo High graduate, is third in the state in scoring at 25.0 points per game and broke the school’s single-game scoring record three times, including back-to-back games where he scored 48 and 63 points. Williams, from Wilson High, averaged 21.3 points (sixth in the state) and 12.2 rebounds (third in the state) per game. Anderson, in his 16th season as head coach, has guided the Vikings to a 21-10 overall record and an 8-0 mark in the SCC South. Anderson has won three consecutive Coach of the Year awards. LBCC won its third consecutive SCC South title and is seeded eighth in the Southern California Regional Playoffs. Freshmen Chris Brown (Poly High) and Matt Richard (Wilson) made the all-conference team and fellow freshmen Randolph White (St. John Bosco) and Emmanuel Green (Lakewood) were honorable mention. “To get six guys (honored) says a lot about this year,” said Anderson. “I hope we can keep the magic going. There’s something magical about this team and we want to take it as far as we can.” Thomas averaged 20.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game for the Vikings (20-8) to claim her second consecutive MVP honor. Jackson led LBCC to a 7-1 SCC South record and its second straight conference title. LBCC freshman guard Dijon Thompson (Mayfair) made the first team along with Cerritos’ La Trina Payne (Mayfair) and Tiffany Wilson (Mayfair). The second team includes sophomores TyQuanna Ganaway (Lynwood) and Jessica Quintero (Paramount) from LBCC and Cerritos’ Genesis Lewis (Paramount) and Shontay Delpit (Paramount). It’s been an MVP season for the men’s and women’s basketball teams at Long Beach City College. On Tuesday, LBCC sophomores Deon Tresvant and Eric Williams were selected co-MVPs of the South Coast Conference South Division and Gary Anderson was selected as SCC South Coach of the Year on Tuesday. For the women, LBCC sophomore guard Amber Thomas and coach Trimeka Jackson were selected MVP and Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season. center_img Also The resurfacing of Cerritos’ track is complete, and just in time. A $50,000 grant from the Amateur Athletic Foundation, awarded to the college in November, was used to replace and widen the track surface and to install new areas for the javelin, shot put, discus and hammer throws. Those new facilities will be put to the test Friday and Saturday at the Cerritos Invitational. The Cerritos softball team is 8-3-1 following Tuesday’s 5-0 victory over Santa Ana. The Falcons opened the season at 0-3 and have gone nine games without a loss. Cerritos returns to play Feb. 28 at Moorpark.

Water floods senior center

first_imgBut Marteeny-Haus said after Wednesday large parts of the center, including the restrooms, may become off limits due to the ongoing cleanup work. County permits require bathrooms with running hot and cold water in order for the dining program to stay open. If that happens, the city may be forced to either suspend or relocate the nutrition program. Many recreation programs and classes have already been suspended, and city officials are trying to host some at the Parks and Recreation facilities at Hollenbeck Park. For more information on rescheduled or canceled classes or programs at the senior center, call (626) 858-7271. fred.ortega@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2306160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! COVINA – Two freak incidents left Covina’s Joslyn Senior Center flooded under inches of water over the weekend, causing tens of thousands of dollars in damage and leaving officials scrambling to relocate classes and programs. A maintenance worker accidentally left a hose on in a utility closet late Thursday, city spokeswoman Bobbi Kemp said. late Friday, crews cleaning up the first incident discovered the building’s water main had broken, sending water cascading into the center’s library, classrooms and offices. “It was Friday the 13th, one week delayed,” said Stacy Marteeny-Haus, the city’s community services supervisor, who added it did not appear the two incidents were related. The cost to clean and dry out the building is estimated at $28,000 to $35,000, Parks and Recreation Director Amy Hall-McGrade said. Restoration work, including replacing waterlogged tile and carpeting, wood paneling, drywall and even the auditorium’s Pergo dance floor, could exceed $100,000, she said. It is unclear how long the cleanup and repair work will take, Hall-McGrade said. “We are taking it day by day,” she said Monday, as huge blowers and dehumidifiers hummed in the center’s library. “The \ company has said the equipment will have to be running anywhere from three to 10 days. And for the restoration process we still have to find a contractor, so we won’t know about starting on that for at least a week.” Hall-McGrade said the city’s insurance should pay some of the costs, but it is unclear at this point how much of the restoration work will be covered. In the meantime, the center’s nutrition programs will go on as planned until at least Wednesday. The dining room and kitchen were the only two areas of the center spared by the flooding. last_img read more

Bruins top Rams in OT

first_imgSecond place in the Moore League was up for grabs on Tuesday night when the Millikan High and Wilson girls basketball teams met in front of a large crowd of supporters. Free throws by guards Leandra Sands and Amber Harden in overtime sealed a 61-56 win for the Bruins, who entered the game as underdogs. “It was a good game. You know our best player got into foul trouble early and everyone stepped up,” Wilson coach Paula Clear said. “I think we played a little tentative in the first quarter. I told Amber to be a baller. They got a little confidence and played the game I know they are capable of playing.” The Bruins (10-6) had a nine-point lead entering the fourth quarter, but the Rams (10-5) chipped away 0and even went ahead, 50-49, on a power move by Samantha Marez with 31.8 seconds remaining.

Fantasy Premier League tips 2016/17: Top 10 midfielders you should consider

first_img 11 10: Anthony Martial (Manchester United) – £9.5m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – You may not have heard, but Anthony Martial has been classed as a midfielder in this year’s Fantasy Premier League. The young Frenchman, who has also been known to play up front for United, could be a bargain given his natural attacking instincts and obvious eye for goal. 6: Dimitri Payet (West Ham) – £9.5m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Payet was one of the stars of last season and, after keeping up his form during the Euros, should be one of the first names you considered for your team this year. HOWEVER, Payet only played his first minutes of pre-season last Sunday and so is very unlikely to start against Chelsea. Perhaps he should be your first incoming transfer of the season. 2: Dele Alli (Tottenham) – £8.5m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Everybody knows who Dele Alli is now, so there will be no cheap price for him this year. At £8.5m, the Spurs youngster costs the same as Paul Pogba, but Alli is proven in the Premier League and looks set to only improve this year. 1: Yannick Bolasie (Crystal Palace/Everton) – £6.0m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Should he complete his proposed £30m transfer to Everton, Yannick Bolasie will certainly be one to consider for your fantasy team. Priced at only £6.0m, this creative winger will look to improve on his points tally at his new club. 4: Sadio Mane (Liverpool) – £9.0m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – At first glance Sadio Mane looks very overpriced at £9.0m, but Liverpool’s new man has impressed in pre-season and could prove to be value for money if Jurgen Klopp can get his team going in the new campaign. 7: Gaston Ramirez (Middlesbrough) – £5.5m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Gaston Ramirez is astonishingly cheap at £5.5m given his proven Premier League pedigree. The Uruguayan midfielder could be a bargain pick for your team if ‘Boro make the most of their decent early fixtures. 3: Andre Ayew (West Ham) – £7.5m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – West Ham don’t often spend £20m on a player without intending to play him. That’s good news for those of you who haven’t quite left enough in your budget to afford Dimitri Payet, as Ayew could pick up a lot of points from his position in and around West Ham’s attack. 11 11 11 The five players who make up the midfield are a crucial part of any Fantasy Premier League team.If you can find the cheap goalscorers before anybody else, you’ll gain a significant advantage over the opposition in your mini-leagues. And if you select the best of the expensive big boys early on, you will be very hard to catch.So which of this year’s many midfielders should make your top five? We have ten suggestions – and one bonus – ranked by their value for money, based on our knowledge of the Fantasy Premier League.Check out which midfielders you should sign by clicking the right arrow above… 11 11 11 11 9: Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) – £10.5m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Like Dimitri Payet, Kevin De Bruyne only played his first minutes of pre-season on Sunday and so is unlikely to start for City in their season opener. However, also like Payet, De Bruyne looked very impressive last season and should be well in contention as someone you should bring into your side once he is back playing regularly for City. 11 5: Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – £10.0m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – We all know the story of Eden Hazard last season, but since he rediscovered his goalscoring form, the Belgian has looked back to his best. Hazard was bright at the end of last season and at the Euros as well as looking sharp for Chelsea pre-season. So is it time to finally welcome him back into your team? 11 8: Jesse Lingard (Manchester United) – £6.0m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – Many Manchester United fans have been less than impressed with Jesse Lingard this pre-season, but Jose Mourinho looks set to stick by him – especially after his impressive goal in the Community Shield. If Lingard does become a permanent fixture in United’s side, then for a price of just £6.0m he could be hard to resist. 11 BONUS: Paul Pogba (Manchester United) – £8.5m – Click the right arrow to see the next player – We really have no idea how Paul Pogba will perform in the Premier League or how far he will go towards justifying his £8.5m fantasy price tag. If he plays in an attacking role, Pogba could be a bargain for £8.5m, but if he’s played further back, the Frenchman could just be an overpriced equivalent to John Obi Mikel! last_img read more
