“I must commend the resolve of the State Government for placing a high premium on the welfare of its workforce being conscious of the fact that training is a veritable source of staff improvement and will continue to do everything possible within the limit of available resources to improve the efficiency and productivity of officers” the Chairman reiterated.

He advised the retiring officers to keep themselves engaged physically and productively to avoid sicknesses.
The Permanent Secretary of Local Government Establishments, Training and Pensions Office, Mr. Oluwatoyin Onisarotu who also addressed the retiring officers said that the workshop will prepare retiring officers towards disengagement from the Public Service and will also give them tips on quality life and how to manage small scale businesses.

France elections: Le Pen steps down as Front National leader

Populist French presidential frontrunner Marine Le Pen said on Monday that she would step down as leader of the Front National (FN) party to focus on gathering a large number of voters ahead of the decisive voting round on May 7 against Emmanuel Macron.
Le Pen told France 2 that her decision had been made out of the "profound conviction" that the president of the republic must bring together all of the French people.‍
"I will be above partisan considerations," she said.
The move comes just a day after Le Pen reached the second round of the French election along with centrist Macron.
She came second with 21.30 percent, or 7.67 million votes, a record number for the FN, mirroring growing public support for the anti-immigrant and eurosceptic party.

 Their unusual action received an official response on Sunday, as Edappadi Palaniswami, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, visited the protesters and urged them to stop.
The farmers are victims of a major drought, following the lowest rainfall levels of the last 140 years. On January 11, 2017, the local government in Tamil Nadu declared all districts of the state drought-hit.
For the past 40 days, the protesters have set up camp in New Delhi to demand loan waivers and a relief package of 61 billion US dollars to compensate their losses, according to Xinhua.
To make their voices heard, the farmers have resorted to extreme measures to attract attention, from wearing human skulls to eating grass, mice and snakes. "The Indian government is not giving us water. So we have no other way but to consume urine," P Ayyakkannu, the man heading the protest said, claiming that their action was to draw the federal government’s attention. He claimed that “in order to wake up the government,” they would eat their own faeces if nothing was done.

Accomplished boxing trainer Nick Durandt died in a motorcycle accident on Friday near Clarens, Free State according to several reports.
Renowned boxing coach Nick Durandt dies at 53

Although he had never boxed himself, Durandt had a sparkling career as a boxing coach and “produced 95 South African champions in all 17 weight divisions, 38 world champions and 27 international champions through the WBC, WBA, IBF, WBO, WBF and IBO organisations”, according to SuperSport.
Boxers such as Isaac Hlatshwayo, Phillip “The Timebomb” Ndou, Hawk Makepula, Cassius Baloyi, Zolani Tete and Silence Mabuza trained, and won titles, under Durandt’s tutelage.
The coach boasted a stellar roster of fighters and had also spent time in training with international superstars such as Oscar de la Hoya, Evander Holyfield and Roy Jones Jr. He also helped train US boxer Hasim Rahman who knocked out three-time world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis at Carnival City on April 22 2001.

He announced his retirement in May last year, but continued to run several gyms in Johannesburg.
Journey to the West,” the story of a superhero who hatched from an egg on a mountaintop, is making its long-anticipated return in 2018.
The latest version Journey to the West complained by Chinese netizins
But it won’t be Chinese actors in this superhero story. An Australian production firm is reworking the Chinese TV classic for American and New Zealand audiences, raising eyebrows among die-hard fans.
“Don’t remake Magic Monkey. Just replay the series. You can’t improve on perfection,” one fan said on messaging and social media platform WeChat.
Among the changes is a new title, “The Legend of the Monkey.” Three of the four main characters will also be female, in contrast to the original’s all-male leading cast.

“Journey to the West” is one of the most famous TV shows in China. It was replayed on different TV stations over 2,000 times in the country and across Asia. The TV show’s director Yang Jie passed away earlier this month.

Made in China: Yangtze River bridge a testament to quality construction

The Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge has gone through seven major floods, 77 hits from cruise ships, and six decades worth of wear and tear. It still stands firm in central China’s Hubei Province today.

An inspection report by authorities in the city of Wuhan showed on paper what people can see in real life: The bridge shows no indication of sinking or morphing. Its eight piers do not have any cracks, and all can bear up to 60,000 tons of pressure and flood waters with a volume of 100,000 cubic meters at a velocity of five meters per second.

The Wuhan Bridge is also capable of withstanding magnitude-8 earthquakes, the Wuhan Railway Bureau said.
Over 60 years, the Wuhan Bridge has seen three generations of maintenance workers, and their techniques have changed significantly since the piece of infrastructure was opened in October 15, 1957.

The first and second generations of bridge maintenance experts moved all materials and tools on and off the bridge with their bare hands. Taking care of this giant used to be labor-intensive.
Workers today have turned to better technology to make their work easier. Hu Jiangang, a member of the bridge’s quality control research team, said at least 10 creative approaches have been developed in the past two years to make maintenance work more efficient.

Thanks to those innovations, it now takes just 50 people to maintain the bridge, down from 300 when it first opened.
“The Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge was designed with 100 years’ service life. Now 60 years have passed and we’ve set a new goal for ourselves, to expand its service life to 150 years with scientific approach applied,” the bridge’s maintenance director Huang Wei said.

We just feel that we should take a decision to destroy the camps. The destruction of the camps are ongoing, that is why we are here and the officers that are handling the destruction of the camps, they are right inside the creeks now and at the end of the day, they would share the story as they finish that operations, but our movement here is just for you to see the terrain and see what the security operatives are facing with regards to policing this environment and that is why we are clamouring for the destruction of these shanties”, Owoseni said.

He said the Police have gathered necessary information on the perpetrators still on the run, assuring that one by one, they would be arrested and be made to face the full wrath of the law.

He commended the synergy of the combined efforts of the security operatives, just as he added that the efforts of the local vigilante groups who are familiar with the terrain was critical to the operation especially in aiding to navigate the hideouts of the militants.

“I want use this opportunity to thank the civilian men that have decided to join us and take us to navigate the water and also give us a lead to the centre of activities which is the creek where these criminal elements have been hibernating,” Owoseni said.

Serena Williams, the best female tennis player of all time and current world No. 2 announced her pregnancy after posting her pregnant belly on Snapchat, citing that she was 20 weeks along.

If the 20-week timeline in her Snapchat is accurate, it means Williams won the Australian Open in January for her record-breaking 23rd Grand Slam singles title final while roughly 10 weeks pregnant.

The 35 year old tennis star deleted snap is currently slated to play in Madrid in early May. She has not played a tournament since then, withdrawing from events in Indian Wells, Calif., and Miami last month, citing a knee injury.

Williams, a 22-time Grand Slam champion, is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 33.
Williams is one of the greatest American athletes active today, and is the highest-paid female athlete in the world.
There has been no official confirmation by her representatives.
