Murdered Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero, Pope Paul VI Raised to Sainthood

Pope Francis raised slain Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero and Pope Paul VI to sainthood on Sunday in a ceremony in Saint Peter's Square attended by tens of thousands of pilgrims.

Wearing a blood-stained rope belt which belonged to Romero, who was murdered at the altar, Pope Francis led the canonization ceremony in front of some 60,000 pilgrims and heads of state from across the world.

Both men have been hailed by Francis for their courage in turbulent times and their dedication to social justice and the downtrodden.

Their giant portraits were unfurled on Saint Peter's Basilica along with those of five other new saints, including an orphaned youth and a German nun.

Leaders must act tough, Congratulations Tetema Tondeneh! Yvonne Aki-Sawyer denied gender sympathy
Having looked at the video footage of what transpired between the Deputy Minister and Mayor of Freetown, I can now make an objective comment on the subject.

First of all the Minister is Yvonne's boss. Secondly Yvonne has a council with Administrative staff that should be in charge of the management of the process! The Minister did not do anything wrong, neither did he say anything offensive. He was just being a 'footsoldier' of the New Direction.

Freetown City Council is not the only council in SL, why is Aki-Sawyer always involved in confrontation with the change process? She must allow the oganogram of the FCC to work. The celebrity status she is seeking must not see her putting up a funny argument with her superior (Supervisor). A Boss must always be hard! Tondeneh was just doing what a boss should do.

Do we know how President speaks tough in Cabinet? These people have a mandate from the President, please let's allow them to monitor the New Direction program.

An argument about trucks doesn't make anything disrespectful to the Mayor. She must not use her 'femaleness' to seek sympathy for being argued with. Gender games are for the girls not for women in politics. A Mayor relegating herself to counting of vehicles? Ornorshineh or-thasrr! whilst other Mayors around the country were busy moving across their cities boosting morale for an effective cleaning exercise, Yvonne was in an argument with her boss about trucks.

Facebook Has Removed  More than 800 U.S. Accounts Spreading Fake News

Facebook Inc. said it removed 559 pages and 251 accounts that were coordinating the spread of misinformation and spam in the U.S. — and most originated from within the country.

The social network, which has been under fire for facilitating foreign interference in U.S. politics, has found that domestic actors have also been creating fake pages and accounts to attract people with shocking political news, the way they have in the past with celebrity news or health news. Their motivation is mostly financial, the company said.

“The people behind the activity also post the same clickbait posts in dozens of Facebook Groups, often hundreds of times in a short period, to drum up traffic for their websites,” the company said Thursday in a blog post. “And they often use their fake accounts to generate fake likes and shares. This artificially inflates engagement for their inauthentic pages and the posts they share, misleading people about their popularity and improving their ranking in news feed.”
