I’m not frightened, and I am determined to continue informing the public about what is going on,” he added.“Music is my life. Through music, the voice of the people can be heard,” he stated. “With music, political and social change can take place in the life of any people.”Takun J said the people are tired of the many lies that there would be better living conditions; and so they need somebody to speak out for them.“ I decided to speak for them so their voices can be heard. I’m frowned upon by the authorities because the songs speak the truth,” he said with smile.The artist, also known as the King of Hip Co, noted that his inspiration for this song, “They Lie to Us,” came in the midst of the Ebola crisis, after he observed that “people where dying at the early stages without care, while authorities corrupted the funds they receiving. “They lied to us. I am speaking not only about this government alone, but also past governments that have cheated and mistreated us.”“They Lie To Us”, the current hottest single in Liberia, reflects the people’s frustration with the powers in government, as access to opportunities and better economic conditions continue to decline for the majority of people.In 2007, after releasing the hit controversial single, “Policeman,” a song that exposed police corruption, police officers arrested and jailed Takun J twice.

I don’t think that corruption helps anybody; and if we continue this without a change, the worst may happen to Liberia,” he warned.He disclosed that because of lack of honesty among the authorities, the ordinary citizens languish in poverty. The only good thing that Liberia can boast of now is peace, whereas the citizens sleep with hunger and misery every day. “We Liberians need to be careful in the coming election or else it will be old wine in new bottle. “My way of life is that if I wrong you, let me be punished for it; it is now time that corrupt officials are disciplined,” he warned.Takun J stressed that if nothing is done about corruption, the next generation will suffer more and these are the messages the songs are preaching.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Colorado high, W. Virginia low in heart health ranks

first_imgThe researchers then statistically adjusted the results to correct demographic differences in state samples to better mirror the U.S. census. The prevalence in both Colorado and the District of Columbia was a little under 5 percent, tying them for the nation’s lowest rate. Hawaii was close behind. The regional differences are believed to stem from rates of obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking and other known risk factors for heart disease, said the study’s lead author, Jonathan Neyer, a CDC epidemiologist. That means the explanation would come from differences in cultural norms, poverty rates and other social factors, and not environmental causes, he said. “There’s not something in the water,” Neyer said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! He called the report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “very important. It confirms what we know about regional differences in the burden of disease.” For the nation as a whole, roughly 4 percent of those surveyed had had a heart attack. A slightly higher percentage reported angina or coronary heart disease, and 6.5 reported any of those conditions. But in West Virginia, more than 10 percent had at least one of the conditions. The prevalence in Kentucky was nearly 9 percent, and Mississippi was No. 3, with 8 percent. CDC researchers drew their data from a 2005 telephone survey of 356,112 U.S. adults in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Participants were asked whether a doctor or health care professional had told them they had experienced a heart attack, angina or coronary heart disease. ATLANTA – West Virginia and Kentucky – states known for high levels of obesity, diabetes and smoking – have the highest proportion of people with heart disease in the nation, U.S. health officials said Thursday. The findings, from the first study ever to look at heart disease prevalence state by state, showed that states in the Southeast and Southwest were heart disease leaders. Colorado and the District of Columbia had the lowest percentages. The results line up well with previous, state-specific reports about heart disease death rates, obesity and other risk factors, said Wayne Rosamond, an epidemiology professor at the University of North Carolina who chairs a statistics committee for the American Heart Association. last_img read more
