first_imgIn fulfillment of its public awareness and education program, the Land Commission is pleased to publish this information on the various types of Deeds as prescribed by the Ministry of Lands, Mines and Energy.Question: What are the various types of Deeds and their significance?Answer: There are several types of Deeds.  We will tell you about some of the most common ones; namely:Eleemosynary Grant Deed:  Used as a gratis conveyance, whether or not reciprocally, to a diplomatic mission or to a religious institution (as in the case of ELWA) for an indefinite period of time but with the right of reversion reserved in the government, which shall become vested at the time of abandonment of the property or when the property shall no longer be used for diplomatic or religious purposes by the tenant.Mother Deed:Mother deed is an important document in a property transaction. This is the document that traces the origin of property as well as all other relevant conveyance deeds. It is the main document to determine ownership of a property. Tracing ownerships should always begin with scrutiny of the earliest document recorded.If such documents are not made available, certified copies have to be obtained from the registering authorities. Earlier documents are called mother or parent documents.Ownership of property changes hands through a series of transactions. It is very important to trace the ownership of a property, especially when it is either being purchased or is being offered as a security. Mother deed acts as the main legal document as evidence ownership of property. It also acts as the main document for further sale by the buyer as it establishes proof of his ownership.Public Land Sale Deed:  Used for the sale of public land only by the Republic of Liberia at the government’s statutory price, procedures and allocation.  This deed bears the signature of the President of Liberia.Curator’s Deed:  This is used when a Probate Judge, after diligent inquiry to identify the heirs of an unattended intestate estate, orders the Curator of Intestate Estate to administer the Intestate Estate and sell the lands of the deceased to pay the just debts of the estate by executing and issuing Curator’s DeedWarranty Deed:  This is used mostly for the sale of private lands, and ordinarily referred to as deed with covenants.  It carries the signature of the original seller of the land and the private surveyor.Quit Claim Deed:  This is used frequently by co-owners to partition and distribute their property held in common by signing Quit Claim Deeds to one another with or without a bill in equity to the same effect, it may be adopted when the transferor warrants his or her previous right of occupancy of the land conveyed, but not against any superior claims.Executor’s Deed:  This deed is employed to distribute the estate (land) of a person who died leaving a valid last will and testament upon a decree of the proper probate court; an Executrix Deed shall be used where the will names a woman as executor.Administrator or Administratrix’s Deed:  Used mostly for the purpose of distributing an intestate estate of a deceased or where executor(s) named in a valid will have all died or have been disqualified by the court.  Every such Administrator or Administratrix shall be appointed by probate court of the city and county where the land is located or where the deceased last had his domicile.Deed of Escheat:  Used by the Probate Court to transfer a Private Land to the Government due to failure of heirs and also land abandoned by a charitable or political institution.Trust Deed:  Used to convey property in trust to a person called trustee to manage it for the benefit of another person or persons to achieve some desired objectives of the maker of the trust after which the trust property shall be distributed to the named beneficiaries.  A Trust Deed involving a real property shall not convey absolute title to the trustee but to the beneficiaries as designated by the Deed of Trust.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Dreamland! Man United’s marquee signing this summer – are any of these players the answer?

first_imgA club of Manchester United’s calibre can’t just sign any old player and expect their fan base to be satisfied.Only the cream of the crop can generate excitement among the Stretford End faithful, which is why there was mass hysteria when Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos was linked with a move to the club.The 29-year-old’s name began trending on Twitter when rumours of a potential switch emerged and considering manager Louis van Gaal’s job is to make United title contenders next season, the Dutchman wouldn’t say no to an opportunity to add another household name to his ranks.Here, talkSPORT looks at more of those big names, so click the yellow arrow above, right, to see which stars could soon be the Red Devils’ marquee signing this summer. 3. Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see more of Manchester United’s potential marquee signings – The Paris Saint-Germain striker is a unique talent. Although he is by no means everybody’s cup of tea, he remains one of the best strikers in the game. With just one year remaining on his contract in the French capital the 33-year-old could, yet again, be on the move this summer. Given that the Sweden international is entering the twilight years of his career he would not command a huge transfer fee, but persuading such an enigmatic figure to finally ply his trade in the Premier League would be a coup. 5 5 5 5. Raphael Varane – The France international is widely regarded as the best young defender in world football and could solve Manchester United’s defensive problems – Signed by Real Madrid from Lens for a fee in the region of £10 million in 2011, such a paltry fee has proven to be a bargain. Although the defender is contracted until 2020 Varane will be keen to nail down a starting berth for his national side with Euro 2016 on the horizon. He seems unlikely to edge out either Sergio Ramos or Pepe entirely and could be interested in a chance to become a leading light at another major side. Given his outstanding pace, ability on the ball and tenaciousness in the challenge, the Premier League would be an ideal destination. He won’t come cheap but the Frenchman could also be a potential makeweight that Louis van Gaal will attempt to include in David de Gea’s proposed move to the Bernabeu this summer. 2. Gareth Bale – Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see more of Manchester United’s potential marquee signings – The Welsh forward enjoyed a stellar debut season in the Spanish capital, netting a crucial goal in both the Copa del Rey and Champions League finals. His second campaign has been a struggle. The fickle Madrid crowd has now installed the former Spurs star as a scapegoat and Bale’s form has been put under intense scrutiny. Given that he is the most expensive footballer of all time pressure is to be expected, but the 26-year-old could be persuaded to return to more familiar climes. With Bale in their front line United would, arguably, have the best attacking line up in the division. 4. Cristiano Ronaldo – Click the yellow arrow above, right, to see Manchester United’s final potential marquee signing – The reigning Ballon d’Or winner has achieved such staggering levels of consistency at Real Madrid that, were it not for Lionel Messi, he would arguably have been crowned the best player of all time. Although an ongoing personal duel with the Argentine has brought out the best in Ronaldo, he retains a soft spot for the Red Devils, which is where he initially forged his imperious reputation. A recent poll of Madrid fans suggested that almost half of the Bernabeu faithful would be willing to see the 29-year-old, if the price was right. United have the financial muscle to sign the former fans’ favourite and his arrival would help the club to become instant challengers on all fronts. 1. Paul Pogba – To see the full list of Manchester United’s potential marquee signings, click the yellow arrow above – Sergio Ramos has been linked with a summer switch to Real Madrid, with the club believed to want the Spain defender in exchange for letting David De Gea move. Here, talkSPORT looks at other potential big transfers to get fans excited, beginning with dynamic France midfielder Paul Pogba. The 22-year-old left Old Trafford for nothing a couple of years ago, but has go on to develop into an outstanding player in Turin. Given that the majority of Europe’s elite are already interested in his services, United would have to break the bank to sign the midfielder, but the Frenchman’s combative style and endless energy are well suited to England’s top flight. 5 5last_img read more

ANTI-AUSTERITY GROUP IN DISARRAY AS RESIGNATIONS FOLLOW MILFORD PROTEST

first_imgDONEGAL Action on Cancer Care and leading members of anti-Government groups have quit an umbrella organisation after the protests outside Loreto Community School in Milford this week.DACC Spokeswoman Betty Holmes said they took the decision after members of Donegal Action Against Austerity took actions ‘against our ethos’.DAAA has been at the centre of a shambolic attempt to distance itself from the protest which took place at the Co Donegal during a visit by the Taoiseach. DAAA said its members hadn’t taken part in the demonstration which many students and parents at the school objected to.But members of the organisation – some wearing official DAAA garments – were there.The spokesman who denied DAAA’s involvement has also now quit the group. He has yet to withdraw his denial statement.Instead Ryan Stewart issued a joint ‘quit’ statement with John McLaughlin and Trevor Kilpatrick. It reads: Following on-going concerns over the motives of individuals within DAAA, we have felt that we have had no other option than to walk away from the group.“We had decided as a group, that we would not take part in any protest in Milford on the occasion of the visit of the Taoiseach, out of respect for the students and their remarkable achievement. We have since learned that Joseph Murphy and a few other members, decided to organise a protest on their own, without the consent or knowledge of the group, and we find this unacceptable. This is not the first time, and as a result of their refusal to adhere to the consensus of the group, the majority have decided to leave them to it.“Donegal Action Against Austerity was never about being an out-and-out protest group. All of us have worked extremely hard, and given up valuable time campaigning against austerity measures, getting information out into the public domain, opening doors to get access to those in power, and put the ordinary person’s views on the table.”The statement made a number of other claims which we cannot publish for legal reasons.Betty Holmes statement can be read here: https://www.donegaldaily.com/2012/05/25/leading-cancer-group-resigns-from-donegal-action-against-austerity-movement/ANTI-AUSTERITY GROUP IN DISARRAY AS RESIGNATIONS FOLLOW MILFORD PROTEST was last modified: May 25th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Network presidents: No threat from iPod

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “You can’t let the cart pull the horse,” NBC Entertainment President Kevin Reilly said. “You still need a sun for the planets to revolve around.” Quizzed by moderator Dennis Miller about various other topics, the executives admitted that programming on Saturday nights remains a problem with viewership on that night at record lows. The networks are either airing repeat episodes of their prime-time hits or running movies. “Right now, it is a challenge,” said CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler, whose network once ruled the night with classic comedies like “All in the Family” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” “We all look at Saturday and say, ‘What are we going to do about that?”‘ McPherson, whose network is decades past its glory days of “The Love Boat” and “Fantasy Island,” said that on Saturday nights, “you aren’t going to put huge amounts of marketing into it because we’re not sure what the upside is anymore.” While viewers have all but abandoned Saturday nights, the panel does not believe they will be abandoning reality shows anytime soon despite more failures in the genre and ratings drops for such stalwart franchises as “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race.” “I think reality is going to thrive and survive,” said UPN President Dawn Ostroff, whose network’s “America’s Next Top Model” has enjoyed a ratings bump. “The strong franchises are doing well for all of us.” With a network that airs “The Biggest Loser” and two versions of “The Apprentice” starring Donald Trump and Martha Stewart, respectively, NBC’s Reilly believes reality is just settling into the television landscape the same way that other types of shows have over the years. “The genre is just getting in line with the rest of television,” he said. “The feeding frenzy is over.” Added Tassler: “We had the death of drama, the death of comedy and now we’re having the death of reality. It’s finally matured and earned the right to be dead.” Greg Hernandez, (818) 713-3758 greg.hernandez@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BEVERLY HILLS – In the wake of Apple Computer Inc.’s unveiling of its new video iPod, the presidents of the six broadcast networks said Wednesday that they welcome such new technology and do not perceive it as a threat to their business. “It is a 2.5-inch screen and while it’s an amazing device, it’s not something you’re going to sit around with the whole family and watch,” said ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson, whose network’s shows including “Desperate Housewives” and “Lost” are the first to be offered as part the video iPod’s pay-per-download feature. McPherson and the other presidents addressed new technology and a host of other topics at The Hollywood Radio and Television Society’s Newsmakers Luncheon at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The executives acknowledged that new forms of technology are rapidly changing the entertainment industry but said creative content providers have to focus on good product and let the various new distribution channels slug it out for themselves. last_img read more
