‘Burning Buses Not Solution to Accidents,’ -Sekou Kamara

first_imgOne of the ‘Killer Bean’ bus on Johnson Street yesterday in MonroviaSekou Kamara, a driver of one of the yellow American school buses popular known as ‘Killer Bean,’  says angry residents burning buses whenever there is a tragic accident is not the solution to the problem.In an interview with the Daily Observer yesterday following the resumption of operation of the buses which were grounded after angry commercial motorcyclists razed one on Battery Factory Road on Monday, Kamara said such an action does not ease the pain of the tragedy.Kamara said bus owners and stakeholders held meetings on Wednesday and Thursday, and the owners agreed to put their buses back on the road.He said the buses have third party insurance coverage and so whenever there is an accident, common sense should lead everyone involved to dialogue in order to resolve the problem.“In the incident on Monday, the motorbike rider ran his bike in front of the bus and because it is a large vehicle, the bus driver could not avoid what happened,” he said.Kamara rejected claims that because ‘Killer Bean’ buses are huge, their drivers don’t provide space for other road users.Sekou Kamara appeals to Liberians to avoid mob action because it does not solve the problem“Sometimes other vehicles and motorbikes try to overtake when the bus driver is not aware of their action,” he said. “So other road users should make sure that whenever they are behind any such large vehicles they should allow some space between them.”Kamara said overtaking any huge vehicle when that driver is unaware is extremely dangerous, “and they must work hard to avoid that.”He said he regrets the death of Victor Morris, who was crushed to death after reportedly crossing in front of the bus on Monday evening.Kamara said all yellow buses were back on the streets early yesterday morning plying their normal routes, including trips to Red Light, Gardnersville, New Georgia, Topoe Village – all on Somalia Drive, and destinations on Bushrod Island.The temporary withdrawal of the buses from the streets caused enough transportation difficulties for commuters, who appealed to commercial motorcycle riders to avoid mob action and allow the Liberia National Police to handle such cases.“The Liberia National Police must be vigorous against mob action,” a commuter told the Daily Observer in an interview on Johnson Street in Monrovia.The yellow American school buses got the name ‘Killer Bean’ from Killer Bean Forever a 2009 computer-animated action film that tells the story of an anthropomorphic coffee bean assassin named Jack Bean, known as Killer Bean, who was a no-nonsense killer who made light use of his enemies. Like the movie, the yellow American school bus “is like a Roadmaster that exerts its position on the road so that vehicles, motorbikes and other road users always stay clear when it is coming,” said a young woman who spoke to the Daily Observer last night. “When the yellow bus, with its huge side, is moving down the road, all vehicles give way,” she said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

If your PC does not turn on anymore try this

first_imgIf your PC does not turn on anymore, try this by Martin Brinkmann on April 22, 2016 in Tutorials – Last Update: June 18, 2019 – 23 commentsI’m not a hardware guy. While I’m capable of building a PC from scratch by selecting compatible components and putting it all together, I’m only interested in hardware when I’m about to build a new PC and not the other time of the year.One of the first things I do each morning is to power on a PC. Imagine my surprise when my PC would not boot at all.This guide provides you with tips that may help you fix the not turning on issue on your own. Please note though that it won’t provide a 100% surefire way of fixing things as there is none.Instead, we are going to take a look at basic diagnostic options that may help you understand what is happening. Often, it is a basic issue that is easily fixed even if you have no idea about components that computers use to function.InspectionAlso a good time to clean the PC from dust.Instead of panicking right away, take a look at your PC and the connected components. In particular, check the following:Do other electronic devices work. If power is out completely, those won’t work as well.Check the power connection to the PC. Make sure the cable is not lose. Also, make sure the power connection is working by testing it with another electronic device.PCs have a power on/off switch on the back usually. Make sure the switch is in the on position.Check if the PC monitor has power, and that its connection to the PC is firm in place.Do you hear fans and the PC powering up when you turn it on?Check the power and reset buttons at the front. Do they appear stuck or out of place?After inspecting the PC externally, it is time to open it up if the above suggestions do not fix the issue. While I’d suggest you turn off the power before you do so, you may get important clues why something is not working if you keep the power on for a moment longer. Just make sure you don’t touch anything hardware related after you open the PC while it is turned on.Open the left side of the PC panel. You may need a screwdriver for this or can use your hands to do so depending on the case used.The motherboard indicates with an LED light usually if it gets power. If you don’t see any light there, it can mean that cables are not connected properly anymore, or that the power supply or motherboard are dead.Try hitting the on switch again. Do you hear fans starting to work inside the PC? Or beeping sounds that come from the internal speaker system?If you hear fans starting, you know that the motherboard is getting power. Beeping sounds indicate issues and you can check out the codes here on this page.Please remove the power connector from the PC and switch the power supply state to off before you continue.Once you have done so, it is time to check the connecting cables. As far as components are concerned, the most important ones are the power supply unit at the back that supplies power to the system, the motherboard, the processor, the video card, and memory.I suggest you check all cables and make sure they are firmly in place. If you notice a lose cable, it may very well be the reason why the PC did not turn on.Also, check that memory and the video card are connected properly.The power on button was stuck on the PC that would not boot this morning. All I had to do was put it in the right place to have the system boot up again without any further issues.Once you are done with the checking, plug the power cord back in and flip the power switch back to on. Try starting the PC and monitor what is happening.What if those methods did not fix the issue?One thing you can try is remove any component that is not required to run the PC. This means external devices, all but one memory module, internal cards (not the video card obviously).Best option here is to remove everything at once, and remember where each component went, to see if the PC starts up afterwards. If it does, add each component one by one to the machine again and test if it caused the issue.If that does not work, then you may want to test other components if you have them around. You may not have a spare power supply unit, motherboard or cpu though, and even if you do, may not be comfortable testing the system on your own.Your best bet then is to ask a friend for help if you know someone who is proficient in these things, or take your PC to a repair shop to get it looked at there.SummaryArticle NameIf your PC does not turn on anymore, try thisDescriptionTry the following, no computer science degree required fixes, if your PC does not turn on anymore when you hit the power switch.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
