Clinton tries to tap Beyonce’s Beehive in search for votes Published: November 5, 2016 11:51 AM EDT Updated: November 5, 2016 12:29 PM EDT SHARE CLEVELAND (AP) – The lights were bright. The beats were pumping. And the backup dancers were wearing blue pantsuits.After raucous performances from Beyoncé and her husband, rapper Jay Z, Hillary Clinton had one simple message for the packed, cheering crowd at Cleveland’s Wolstein Center: “Help us win Ohio.”Clinton’s campaign is turning to a series of free concerts to appeal to young and minority voters not necessarily motivated to vote for her. Beyoncé and Jay-Z offered their own testimonials to the woman who, if elected, would be the country’s first female president and follow its first black president.Beyoncé noted that less than a century ago, women did not have the right to vote.“Look how far we’ve come from having no voice to being on the brink of history – again,” Beyoncé said. “But we have to vote.”The singer says she was thrilled that her young nephew was able to witness Barack Obama’s 2008 election as the nation’s first black president.Now she wants her daughter “to grow up seeing a woman lead this country and know her possibilities are limitless,” Beyonce said. “That’s why I’m with her.”A series of hip-hop stars were part of the show, including Big Sean, J. Cole and Chance the Rapper, who encouraged the crowd to vote for Clinton – at the very least just to prevent Donald Trump from winning the White House.“His conversation is divisive,” said Jay Z. “He cannot be our president”Big Sean recalled being in the audience eight years ago when Jay Z hosted a similar free event for Obama’s campaign in 2008.Now, he told the cheering audience, “we with her.”At one point, Clinton’s famous quote that she “could have stayed home and baked cookies” flashed on the big screens. At another, the slogan “bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote” was blasted to the crowd.Clinton offered her own praise for the show. “I am so energized after this concert and I have to say: Didn’t you love the pantsuits?” Related Articles: last_img read more

first_img Sharing is caring! Share HealthLocalNews Head of Quarantine Unit says inspections of imported goods are carried out regularly by: – November 27, 2018 Share Tweetcenter_img Head of Plant Protection and Quarantine Unit, Nelson LavilleHead of Plant Protection and Quarantine Unit, Nelson Laville has explained that inspections are carried out on all imported agricultural commodities to help prevent the distribution of any tainted produce.He made that statement while speaking to the media last Friday, in an interview where he denounced the rumors of plastic cabbage being distributed in Dominica.Laville stated that the mandatory inspections reduce the chances of any contaminated products from entering the country.He noted that if discovered, these products will either be disposed of, or sent back to the exporter.“Hypothetically speaking, if a commodity which is supposed to be an agricultural commodity is imported into Dominica, it would be intercepted more than likely at our inspections on the port. If that is the case we would confiscate it and destroy it or repatriate it; meaning send it back to its original point,” Laville stated.He explained that customs law, food safety law, and plant quarantine laws demand that the exporter would face consequences, “because Dominica would now issue a non-compliance report to the authorities from the exporting country and that now would trigger a ban of the person from exporting to any destination for that matter.”Laville added that there are serious repercussions under international law if an exporter knowingly distributes contaminated products, including the implementation of bans and blacklisting the exporter.“There are a number of consequences if a commodity which is said to be an agricultural commodity is not that after it has been exported from a country,” he noted.“Likewise if Dominica exports something to a country and we say its coconut but when it gets to the other side it is not coconut there will be consequences for Dominica, one of which is blacklisting. Once you are blacklisted, it means you are prohibited from exporting,” Laville further added. Share 290 Views   no discussionslast_img read more

first_imgDidier Drogba has said he needed to call time on his Chelsea career partly for the sake of the young talent looking to make the breakthrough at Stamford Bridge.The 37-year-old Blues legend announced he would be leaving prior to Sunday’s 3-1 win over Sunderland and was able to say goodbye to the fans on an emotional occasion which saw him carried off the pitch by his team-mates when he was substituted.Drogba only started 14 games for the champions this season and said he “wants to have more minutes than now” in what could be the last season of his career.But he also said he does not want to stand in the way of he next generation of talent.“Chelsea have young players coming through,” Drogba told Chelsea’s website. “They need to play. It’s not that I’m not a competitor but I think it’s time to give them a chance.”Chelsea’s title triumph meant Drogba bowed out in styleTeenage strikers Dominic Solanke and Izzy Brown both made their first-team debuts this season.And manager Jose Mourinho also has 21-year-old Patrick Bamford, who could return after his loan spell with Middlesbrough, and Tammy Abraham, 17, who scored 41 goals at youth level this season.Drogba felt the time was right to end a 164-goal Chelsea career that spanned two spells and began in 2004.He added: “I am a bit frustrated because you want to play more. But when I see all the players we have in this squad, I feel happy playing the number of games I have because I have a good contribution – especially in the last few games.“Plus the team needs to be stronger next year to compete in the Champions League. They are also going to buy new players.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
