A 28-year-old mother of three has confessed to strangling to death her 32-year-old reputed husband on Mother’s Day.Dead: Julian AnthonyDead is Julian Anthony, called “Yankee,” of Lot 14 Soesdyke, Back Road, East Bank Demerara (EBD). He was pronounced dead on arrival at the Diamond Diagnostic Centre (DDC) in the wee hours of May 13, 2018 after Police found his body in a slumped position bearing marks of violence.His wife, Melissa Silos, had initially told investigators that her reputed husband had been imbibing, and at about 03:00h on the morning of his demise, had fallen down a flight of stairs. She reported that she attempted to wake the now dead man, but he was unresponsive, and as such, she raised an alarm.However, following a post mortem done on May 18, family members of Anthony began to cry foul play after the cause of his death was given as asphyxiation due to compression injuries to the neck.Further inspections carried out showed marks of violence and redness around the man’s neck.His mother, Shakeila Ally, who returned to Guyana on the day of her son’s death, said she had spoken to him on the previous day.According to the woman, Ally and his reputed wife, both of whom she supported, had been encountering difficulties, and the man had requested that his wife move out.Ally’s mother revealed that she had received a message at about 04:00hrs on the day of her son’s death, informing her of what had transpired.“He said, ‘Mommy, I’m happy that you are coming,’ after speaking to him that night, I got a message at 4am in the morning saying he had passed away. I needed to find out, and I needed to know who did it. This girl knows that I was coming, apparently my son told her that she needs to get out of the home,” the woman recalled last Thursday, as her son was being laid to rest.She is calling for a thorough investigation to be carried out into the circumstances surrounding her son’s demise. As such, Division “A” Assistant Commander Leslie James disclosed that Silos was taken into Police custody for questioning in relation to the suspected murder.The woman has reportedly recanted her previous story and told investigators that she and Anthony had had an altercation when she became annoyed and strangled him.Charges are expected to be laid against the woman shortly.

While this is absolutely true, we must understand that leadership is so much more than that. While the word ‘leadership’ holds simple conations for most, it means much more than simply being in charge or making decisions. We must understand that there are effective leaders and there are those in a position of leadership; they are not necessarily the same thing. You see, the difference here is position versus purpose. What do I mean by this?Often times many persons are given a position where they are in charge of others. However, there hearts have no desire for progress or change, so they keep doing the same things that have always been done. It’s not that they’re not capable but they have not developed a desire for purpose in that role. They may have a lot going on but their actions doesn’t give inspiration to those around them, and therefore, they struggle to gain momentum in their leadership.What we must understand is that leadership isn’t just about the leader, but also about the people they lead. As a leader you will develop a purpose for your leadership by having a heart for the people that you lead. Real effective leadership isn’t about getting people to confirm to your way but about transforming people’s faith in their own abilities through your vision. Successful people identify what they do well; but successful leaders identify what others do well.Aside from the above, I firmly believe that there are a few more key characteristics that any leader should have. Some of these key characteristics are:1. Innovation: Leadership is about introducing something new or different that hasn’t been seen before or taking something already existing or established and transforming it into something new or different. Good leadership is creative and transformative. Innovation in leadership is a process which takes time.2. Decisiveness: A leader must not be afraid to make decisions. Sometimes those decisions will be very hard choices but a leader must have the ability to make good decisions quickly and effectively. Often times, those closest to you may not agree with your choice but being decisive may be the difference between life and death.3. Problem Solving: A leader must have the ability to solve a problem, whether that problem is in the conception of ideas, in the operation of the organization or even with individuals. They must try to see clearly and be objective. When problems are ignored or not resolve they can grow and become even more dangerous later on.4. Compassion: A good leader not only cares about achieving their vision but is also empathetic to the needs and concerns of others, especially of those that follow you. A simple compassionate act can motivate even the most disheartened follower to continue on or persuade the hardest enemy to see differently. Leaders must show that they care!As you may see, these few characteristics are not actually about the leader but how the leader related to others in their role as leader. Successful people position themselves well; successful leaders position others well. Not through favouritism or elitism but through vision. Because the greatest legacy of any leadership is producing more leaders not devoted followers.END.Damian WilsonTCI Patriot National Leadership Conference announced, Youth to get training Recommended for you Natl Leadership Conference begins today; Registration still on Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Vote Your Voice says they did not collect any forms during drive

Instagrams New Update That Sparked Outrage Was Just A Test Close Instagram is working on many features and changes that are going to change a lot of things for its users and influencers. While the news of Instagram hiding like counts on the platform has brought mixed feelings, it’s not the only big change that is going to embrace the social media app. If you haven’t updated your Instagram app, a new version has arrived with a few changes that you might or might not like.Instagram for Android received a new update and with it came a major redesign. The change is mainly for the profile page of Instagram accounts, where things have been shuffled a bit. Users are familiar with the years-long design where the profile photo appears on the top left with the user’s name and bio beneath. The counter for Posts, Followers, Following alongside “Edit Profile” option is alongside the profile photo.The profile design has been unchanged for a long time, making it quite familiar and easy to use. But Instagram decided to bring a new change to the way profiles look and users might need some time to adjust to it. Instagram new update changes profilesIBTimes India/Sami KhanThe new design for Instagram profiles now show the handle right on top and the name user has chosen to be displayed just below it in larger font size. This way, the name of the account holder is highlighted. The account bio, if the user has added, appears below the name in a smaller font, followed by the number of followers and the accounts that the user follows. The number of Posts is no longer shown on the profile.The profile photo appears on the top right corner, just below the settings menu and story archives. There’s a bigger Edit Profile button, which also separates the profile information from the content posted on the account. Users’ Stories will appear below the edit button followed by photos and videos users have posted on the account.Check out the difference below: Instagram new update changes profilesIBTimes India/Sami KhanInstagram is clearly putting the focus on the content here and the information, which would otherwise miss the visitor’s attention. The change is as big as the upcoming features like new Stories camera UI with Create Mode, Shopping from Creators option, Donation Stickers and hiding the precious likes, which is the bread and butter for a lot of influencers out there.Hiding the likes on photos doesn’t take away much from genuine influencers as they can still share statistics about the post’s reach. This will help businesses connect with the right influencers.
