The Central Regional Police command is encouraging the public to report personnel who make financial demands before discharging their official duties.

Responding to claims that police personnel demand money for fuel and other inducements when members of the general public seek their services, the Central Regional Public Relations Officer, ASP Irene Oppong in an interaction with ATL FM said the services of the police are free of charge. Under no circumstance therefore must anyone pay money to the police.

A recent CID report suggests crimes are on the decline in Ghana, but concerns are that victims may not be reporting crimes to the police. This is because the police are not entirely friendly and their services are sometimes paid for when victims want the diligent discharge of their duties.

ASP Oppong encourages members of the public to report policemen who ask for transportation or any other inducement. According to her, “these are some of the problems we want the general public to be reporting to us.”

Professor Seidu Al-hassan, Pro Vice-Chancellor of UDS, who announced this during the UDS’ 25th matriculation ceremony in Tamale on Friday, said “these programmes have been recommended and approved by the Academic Programmes Committee and the Academic Board for implementation.”

The Central Regional Police Command says since the launch of “Operation Hit Hard” some two weeks ago, the activities of criminals in the region have drastically been reduced.

According to the central regional Police Commander, COP Rev. Nenyi Ampah Benin, the operation focuses on reducing criminal activities in the region to the barest minimum.

Personnel at the University of Cape Coast [UCC] Security Section are inadequately resourced to effectively deal with the kind of robberies reported from the University community and its environs.

Mr. Frempah says they are only armed with truncheons, whistles and torchlights and these cannot counter the weapons wielded by the criminals.

The section also has just two vehicles serving the entire university community making them unable to respond promptly to crimes when they are reported.

The University of Cape Coast is surrendered by about seven communities where some students seek accommodation from private developers.

A goalkeeper in Indonesia's top division has died after colliding with a team-mate during a league match.

Choirul Huda, 38, was rushed to hospital on Sunday but pronounced dead shortly after arriving, doctors said.

In a statement released on the website of his club - Persela FC - Dr Yudistiro Andri Nugroho said Huda suffered "impacts on the chest and lower jaw".

He added the "initial analysis" suggested a "possibility of head trauma and neck trauma".

Dr Nugroho, from Dr Soegiri Lamongan hospital in Lamongan, East Java, said the collision resulted in Huda "stopping breathing and [caused a] cardiac arrest".

He said a medical team attempted to revive him but after an hour there were "no reflexes of signs of normal life".

The match continued, with Persela beating Semen Padang 2-0.

Persela said thousands of fans later attended a candlelit vigil to honour the goalkeeper, who made more than 500 league appearances for his only club.

"Thank you for your constant dedication," read a post on the club's Instagram account.

"Thank you for the inspiration you gave to Persela, Lamongan and Indonesian football."


Analysis - 'He loved what he was doing and he was a legend'

Indonesian football writer Antony Sutton met Huda a few months ago while researching a book.

"He played for his local team, he was living the dream," said Sutton. "He was just happy in his skin and happy in his town.

"He's a legend - a one-club man, His ambition was to become his club's goalkeeping coach after he retired.

"He never created a fuss about anything. He loved what he was doing but did it in such an understated way."

Want to create the dream life for yourself? Beauty and Tips takes a look at how to do it using a dream board.

A dream board (also known as a vision board) is a tool that helps us to clarify our dreams. It helps us to focus on them, and it helps us to visually represent them in order that we achieve them. It’s a well-known theory in psychology that if you first visually represent your dreams, you will have a much better chance of one day achieving them. Indeed, one of the reasons a lot of people don’t make good on their dreams is that they haven’t taken the time to represent them visually, as well as organise the goals needed to achieve them properly. Instead, their dreams remain inside their head, scattered, messy, vague and unclear.

A dream board gives you the chance to focus in on your dreams. It lets you identify what your vision is, reinforces your belief that one day you can achieve this, helps you break up your dream into a series of mini goals – and it holds you accountable so that you follow through on what you said you would. Moreover, just waking up each morning and seeing your dream life pinned to your wall? That can be all the motivation you need to seize the day and work on your goals. But how do you use a dream board to create your dream life? Let’s take a look!

Be Clear About What You Want

One of the purposes of a dream board is to create some clarity. What is it that you want exactly? Many of us talk wistfully to our friends at the end of a party, saying we want to see the world, quit our jobs and go travelling. But this is just wishful thinking unless we zone in on the specifics.

What do you really want? In order to discover your dream and what a dream life really represents to you, you need to seek a plethora of images related to your dream life. Doing this will help you to discover the specific reason that this dream speaks to you so much. For example, someone might say their dream is to live in California. Once they start pinning images of California to a dream board, they’ll uncover the specifics of what it is they love about California so much, and what their dream life their would be like. They’ll know more about where they’ll hang out, where they’ll live, and what they’ll do. Making a dream board provides you with clarity, and it also strengthens your dreams, turning it into a realistic goal.

Gather Together Some Relevant Magazines

If you’ve ever seen someone else’s dream board, you’ll have noticed that it seems to be stuffed with what look like photographs from magazines. And that’s because it is. Magazines are a great source for relevant photographs. Whether your dream life involves travelling, business, property, sports, music, art and so on, there will be a magazine for it. Simply buy a few magazines, scan them for pics that standout, and then cut them out and glue onto your dream board. You can also ask your friends and family if they have any old magazines going spare that would be of use to you. And before you ask – yes, cutting photos out of magazines is a lot easier than printing them off the Internet. It’s more fun, too!

Seek Out Pictures That Inspire You

Naturally, you don’t just have to use magazines when curating images for your dream board. But a magazine is a good source because it contains lots of high-quality images. You should keep a lookout for photographs from other sources, too. Seek only images that inspire you, and which represent your goals. If a picture just screams your ideal life? Cut it out and add it to your dream board. Avoid all pictures that don’t inspire you immediately. You don’t want an average dream board that inspires you to live an average life. You want an outstanding dream board that inspires you to live an outstanding life. So choose only those images that are 10/10 and make you want to leap into action.

Add Daily Affirmations

Daily affirmations work. The more you say something, the more your brain will shift focus to believing it. Your brain has a remarkable way of zoning in on the stuff it thinks is important to you while filtering out the rest. This is known as reticular formation. For example, have you ever had the television on in the background while you were working on something? You weren’t listening to the TV and have no idea what’s just been said. All of a sudden, though, someone mentions your hometown and your ears prick up. It’s because your brain has been trained to prioritise its focus on your hometown.

Add Power Words

As well as daily affirmations, you should also add motivational power words to your dream board that make you feel a certain way. These words need to perfectly describe an emotion you want to experience every day for the rest of your life. A few examples include:

  • Joyful
  • Grateful
  • Confident
  • Expressive
  • Healthy
  • Wonderful
  • Powerful
  • Assertive
  • Fearless
  • Loving
  • Kind
  • Secure

Don’t think about how others want to feel, or how you’ve felt in the past or even right now. Think of words that describe how you want to feel in the future.


Look At Your Dream Board Each Day

Look at your dream board each day and, if possible, add to it. To have any sort of effect on you, your dream board should be positioned right where you can’t miss it each day. If it’s practical, place it on the wall facing your bed so that when you get up in the morning, your dream life is looking down on you.

Stay beautiful!
