Senseless terror in France; Europe & USA on alert.
November 13, 2015
0

After the senseless terror where it appears multiple (4 so far), coordinated attacks in various parts of Paris, at least 100 people have been murdered in that attack… and 3 terrorists so far confirmed dead.

Yowlink remembers the families of the people who lost their lives in these acts of terrorism. May God comfort them and grant them peace. God remember us, as people. Help us to love one another. If we love, we will:

1. “have no other gods before You, the one true Almighty God
2. “not make a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven, or on earth beneath, and will not bow down to or serve them
3. “not take the name of the Lord God in vain
4. “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. (Sabbath was made for us not the other way around, according to Jesus)
5. “Honor our father and mother
6. “not murder
7. “not commit adultery
8. “not steal
9. “not bear false witness against your neighbor
10. “not covet your neighbor’s spouse, or properties”

Remember us in these perilous times oh Lord.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts (sins),
as we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.

Amen.

Mid-term Election time in the USA
November 4, 2014
0

Mid-term elections are heating up. What does it mean if Republicans control both the Senate and the House of Representatives? What does it mean if they split again (Republicans control house while Democrats control Senate)?

As of 9:45 PM on Tuesday night, here’s the breakdown*:

Senate: Republicans 45 – Democrats 40 – Independents 2 – Uncounted/Undecided – 13
House [Reps]: Republicans 148 – Democrats 92 – Independents 0 – Uncounted/Undecided – 195
Governors: Republicans 16 – Democrats 10 – Independents 0 – Uncounted/Undecided – 24

* Keep in mind that not all seat were up for grabs. Those seats will be up for grabs in the general elections in 2 years.

Talk to us. People have been quiet this year on the issues.

Vybez Kartel Faces Life After Guilty Verdict

Dancehall Reggae artist Vybz Kartel has been convicted of murder. In a high-profile trial under heavy security, Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, and three of the four co-defendants were found guilty of killing, Clive “Lizard” Williams, in a dispute over missing gun(s).

The Verdict

The verdict returned 10-1 as follows:

  1. Adidja Palmer – GUILTY
  2. Shawn Campbell – GUILTY
  3. Kahira Jones – GUILTY
  4. Andre St John – GUILTY
  5. Shane Williams – Not GUILTY

Defense Lawyer Threatens Appeal

Kartel’s defense lawyer Tom Tavares-Finson called the prosecution’s case against his client “dishonest” citing missing witness statements and evidence CD. After the verdict, where Vybez and co-defendants seemed surprised, Tavares-Finson said he would appeal the verdict.

Prior Murder Case against Kartel

This is the 2nd murder trial against Kartel.  In last year’s (2013) murder trial, Kartel and two other co-defendants were “exonerated” after prosecutors failed to produce evidence to support allegations that the trio killed businessman Barrington “Bossy” Burton in 2011, and the government witness failed to show.  However, Kartel was not released because of the 2nd (recent) murder trial pending.

Juror Arrested in 10-1 Verdict

In something you see in mob movies, a juror at the Vybez Kartel murder trial was taken into custody on allegations bribery. News reaching Yowlink wa that the juror approached another, offering a bribe in exchange for a not guilty verdict

Aftermath

The majority of people “polled” or who commented in Jamaica, the United States, Canada, and UK, felt this was a just verdict and some expressed happiness that Jamaica’s justice system might have taken a micro-step towards improvement.

What is your take.  Talke to me nuh
