Chad Johnson made an interesting reveal on Twitter Tuesday night.The former Bengals Pro Bowl receiver said he would take Viagra before games as a way to boost his performance. After Marshall’s comments, the NFL said Viagra was not on the banned substance list. Around the same time, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) was looking into whether Viagra was really beneficial. In its findings, WADA discovered that Sildenafil isn’t going to make a huge impact for athletes.”Sildenafil is unlikely to exert beneficial effects in oxygen delivery or exercise performance at altitudes < 4000 m for the vast majority of the endurance trained men or women," the report reads.Still, it's interesting to know that NFL athletes were willing to take on the potential side effects of taking Viagra simply to gain a potential edge. I took viagra before every game & people thought they’d stop me, if my stat line was bad i wasn’t covered, the pass was just incomplete 💭— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 28, 2020MORE: Ranking the top 25 wide receivers in 2020When someone asked whether he was simply joking, Johnson responded, "No it wasn’t a joke, I really took viagra before games, the increase in blood flow made me unbelievable [sic] explosive in & out of my routes." There's some proof (the safe for work kind) to back up Johnson's claim. There's a moment when he's mic'd up and talking to a coach, saying he took the pill.The former NFL receiver has also discussed this a number of times on Twitter. He made the joke that he took Viagra so he would be "hard to cover." Johnson also admitted on Twitter that he did this as a way to get around drug testing.NFL tests for steroids, how you gone stop me running on 3 legs every Sunday, no hat 🧢 https://t.co/fZ1OIx6DQ9— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 28, 2020Former receiver Brandon Marshall said he'd heard of other players taking Viagra as well. But he also explained why he's hesitant to use it."But some guys, they'll do whatever they can to get an edge," Marshall said in 2012. "I've heard of some crazy stories. I've heard (of) guys using like Viagra, seriously. Because the blood is supposedly thin, some crazy stuff. So, you know, it's kind of scary with some of these chemicals that are in some of these things, so you have to be careful."But now the real question is: Does this actually work?Johnson isn't alone in his thinking. Some men who train started to take Viagra, or pills similar to it, as a preworkout and claim it made a difference. Men's Health Magazine pointed out that there are a few studies to support it.From Men's Health Magazine:There's a small amount of research to support these claims. A few studies have suggested that taking sildenafil can benefit athletes competing at high altitudes, such as cyclists or long-distance runners, by delivering more oxygen to their muscles. Additionally, a 2013 study in the journal of Clinical and Translational Science suggested that sildenafil could increase muscle protein synthesis and reduce muscle fatigue, concluding that it may “represent a potential pharmacologic strategy to improve skeletal muscle function.”The active ingredient in Viagra, Sildenafil, is intended to increase blood flow by opening up the blood vessels. This allows blood to flow freely to the penis and other surrounding muscles.
Minister Brunson with other participants at the meeting.The African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) has reaffirmed its support to the rebuilding process of Liberia under the current leadership of President George Manneh Weah.Making the promise during a side meeting with Liberian delegation at the 27th Annual meetings of the Board of Governors of the ACBF held in the Cameroon capital of Yaoundé, the ACBF’s Executive Secretary, Professor Emmanuel Nnadozie expressed his gratitude to the people of Liberia for the orderly and peaceful 2017 elections, which ushered in the democratic regime of President George Manneh Weah.Professor Nnadozie also extended his congratulations to President Weah and promised to support the Liberian leader and government through policy advisory services in addition to the Foundation’s on-going institutional capacity support and strengthening of the Liberia Macroeconomic Policy Analysis Center (LIMPAC).In response, Tanneh G. Brunson, Deputy Minister for Budget and Developmental Planning, on behalf of Minister Tweah thanked Professor Nnadozie and the ACBF for its continual support to Liberia.Minister Brunson recounted the ACBF support in 2008 toward the establishment of the LIMPAC and its recent and on-going support to LIMPAC for the establishment of Econometric Forecasting and Training Lab within the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning, and support towards the completion of three research studies; IMPACT of UNMIL Drawdown on the Liberian Economy, Assessing TAX ADMINISTRATION challenges on Domestic Revenue mobilization, and Analyzing the advantages and disadvantages of adopting Liberia’s new GDP series.Minister Brunson also congratulated the ACBF on becoming a specialized unit of the African Union and welcomes advisory services and support of ACBF for Liberia, especially during this critical period of drafting, costing, and finalizing of Liberia’s next medium term development strategy; the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development.Madam Brunson further lamented that as a specialized unit of the AU, Liberia looks forward to the ACBF’s expertise and support for domesticating the Africa Agenda 2063 and the 2030 sustainable goals of the United Nations to Liberia’s new medium term development agenda.LIMPAC Executive Director Mr. Del-Francis Wreh who accompanied Minister Brunson at the 27th Annual meeting also thanked the ACBF for its support to the revitalization of LIMPAC. The LIMPAC Executive Director assured the ACBF boss of LIMPAC’s preparedness to implement projects and programs of the ACBF that promote the socioeconomic improvement of Liberia.In a related development, the ACBF has concluded its 27th Annual Board of Governors meetings on July 20, 2018 under the theme “Youth Employment in Africa: Focus on Developing the Critical Skills.”During the three Panel discussions, panelists shared experiences and challenges across the African continent about the growing youth unemployment and the risks it poses social cohesion and political stability on the continent. During the deliberations, participants highlighted the need for greater resources in addition to political and financial support.In this regard and now more than ever, Africa needs ACBF to not only continue playing its current capacity building coordination role, but to intensify efforts being made to effectively address development bottlenecks and better support skills development interventions. This accordingly requires increased and continual financial support to the ACBF by development partners and member states. Member states including Liberia were also called upon to start paying their respective pledges towards the ACBF’s 2017 – 2023 strategic plans.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
– as interrogators claim accused verbally admitted to crimeIt was a long day of witnesses testifying at the High Court on Monday, but one of the major revelations came during the afternoon session when former Police Inspector and ballistics expert Eon Jackson revealed that he was unsuccessful in his attempts to locate several would-be exhibits.These were purportedly spent shells from the crime scene. Delon Henry, also called “Nasty Man”, is on trial for the gunning down of footballer Dexter Griffith, who was killed near his mother’s East Ruimveldt, Georgetown home on September 29, 2015.At Monday’s proceedings, Government Pathologist, Dr Nehaul Singh gave the cause of death as shock and haemorrhage owing to multiple gunshot wounds, noting that the deceased was shot six times. He said that he noticed injuries to Griffith’s arms, leg, shoulder, back and elsewhere, but did not find gunpowder residue. He further suggested that the assailant fired from three to five feet away.Five of the spent shells were recovered and former Inspector Jackson, then a Sergeant of Police, had tendered the exhibits at the Magistrate’s Court. However, when he testified on Monday, he admitted that he could not find the said exhibits, noting that he made several checks at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) headquarters Eve Leary and also at the Tactical Services Unit (TSU) section at the same location.After Defence Counsel Adrian Thompson sought clarification during Jackson’s evidence-in-chief, Justice Sandil Kissoon observed that the items may have been removed by a third party.Meanwhile, Police Sergeant Detective Rodwell Sarabo and Inspector Shivram Murgaya both corroborated a recollection to the jury of “Nasty Man” admitting to the footballer’s murder. On October 5, 2015, the two Police ranks were present at CID headquarters where they put the murder allegation to Henry. Sarabo and Murgaya told the Court that Henry was treated at a hospital for injuries he had sustained on his foot while he tried to escape from Police custody.They claimed that upon his return to CID, he refused to give a written statement, noting under cross-examination that what the accused related to them could not be counted as a confession statement. However, in evidence-in-chief, the duo asserted that while in custody, Henry admitted.“Officer Barrow used to watch meh back. When they kill El Sinkie that is when I come out, fo kill he; so that is why when this man dead, he and Mafia roll up in a dark car with a hand gun fo kill me,” the two Policemen quoted Henry as saying.They added that they never assaulted, threatened, used violence against or made any promises to Henry. The witnesses also noted that the defendant declined having a meal, having observed that he had already eaten.According to reports back then, after being shot, Griffith reportedly managed to stand and walked a short distance in an attempt to escape from Henry, but eventually fell unconscious to the ground, while his assailant escaped. Prosecutors Lisa Cave and Orinthia Schmidt are prosecuting the State’s case.
