Language as a Tool for Intercultural understanding
No one wants to be misinterpreted or misunderstood and yet not all of us speak the same language. Our world is shaped by a variety of languages unique to a particular group of people within specific geographical context though spread further apart. People make the most of language as a medium of information exchange and an integral way of life.
Securing Africa’s Land for Shared Prosperity
Few development challenges in Africa are as pressing and controversial as land ownership and its persistent gap between rich and poor communities. With a profound demographic shift in Africa from rural areas to the cities where half of all Africans will live by 2050, these gaps will become steadily more pronounced as governments and communities rise to the challenge of growing enough affordable nutritious food for all families to thrive on the continent. In some countries in the region, these gaps—allied as they are with high poverty rates and large-scale unemployment—have become sufficiently wide to undermine shared growth and social cohesion.
LTA’s US$9. 6m loss should warrant sterner measures
It is amazing how promos in the media blow round in the public with a rhetorical rhythm that cause people to dance to what businesses and government want them to hear. The sensation of registering the System Identification Module (SIM) cards to provide “security” is an example of such promos that may be considered an embattled initiative. Why has the registration of SIM Cards become an embattled initiative by both the Government of Liberia and local GSM companies? You may recall that the feathering call made by the Liberia Telecommunication Authority (LTA) to GSM companies to have SIM cards registered in the country was aimed at curbing criminal activities that could have been carried out by unscrupulous individuals for selfish reasons, but has bee defeated.
My Experience in Monrovia
The experience I had in Monrovia is one of the best that one could ever imagine in life. I am a young lady from The Gambia currently in Liberia, Monrovia, for a week’s visit, and have experienced a lot during my stay. I flew onboard the Gambia Bird Airline, and we departed from The Banjul International airport on Monday 24th June, 2012 at exactly 8:00 a.m., and we arrived at the Roberts International airport at exactly 1:00 p.m., having transited from Dakar, Freetown, and then, the plane finally landed in Monrovia. Upon my arrival at the airport, everything was just great. The immigration officers treated me with respect, and that made me feel at home. Underway from the airport in Monrovia to my residence, I realized that Liberians are hard working people because I could see that the streets were very busy with people, especially, the teenagers whom I saw selling foodstuffs and other items on the roadside.

It is time we acknowledge the fact that citizens of every country do not agree on a variety of issues relating to politics, economy, social justice and so forth.
There is a phenomenon that is gradually limiting the freedom of expression in Liberia to politicians.
Well, if prices in the Liberian economy keep going up by eating away at your standard of living then there is an Inflation.
Sometimes emotions can run high, especially on matters of grave importance to us.

I had said I would not comment on the matter of the Rodney Sieh, FrontPageAfrica’s predicament, for obvious reasons, such as, one, I am a journalist myself, and two, I cannot scorn the court’s judgment, which is final in the case.
There is a phenomenon in this country that hinders gradually the freedom of expression on the part of politicians in that it is insane that people who express their opinion on national issues are labeled CDC, UP or NUDP’s sympathizers.
