This is now implemented by inserting a Read more... tag (the button is located below the editor area) a dotted line appears in the edited text showing the split location for the Read more.... A new Plugin takes care of the rest.
It is worth mentioning that this does not have a negative effect on migrated data from older sites. The new implementation is fully backward compatible.

It takes more than presidential promises to make Sierra Leone a better place!
It was indeed with a heavy heart that I read the press release from Reporters Without Borders (RWB) raising alarm bells over the hounding of Independent Observer editors Jonathan Leigh and Bai Bai Sesay in the name of the much dreaded killer press law—the seditious criminal libel law of the 1965 Public Order Act. I cannot actually quantify the extent to which I dread this most obnoxious enemy of press freedom—and indeed the free world—not least because I suffered persecution in its name on a number of occasions under three regimes—the APC, NPRC, and the SLPP---but because it continues to cast a very negative image over our country’s democratic credentials.
Sierra Rutile’s (SRL) HIV/AIDS workplace programme has the potential to set standards for public/private partnership in the delivery of healthcare, according to a study carried out by the National HIV/AIDS Secretariat in Sierra Leone and released on World AIDS Day (1 December).
As the first mining company in Sierra Leone to develop a workplace programme on HIV/AIDS which meets global standards, Sierra Rutile commissioned the research to assess the programme’s impact on rates of HIV/AIDS among its staff and contractors (SSGI and ATS). With the GOSL’s Agenda for Prosperity emphasising the need for workplace policies giving people living with HIV the right to work and receive treatment, the findings of the research are relevant to the whole business community.
The attention of the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ) has been drawn to the Press Release issued by the Bar Association dated 8th November 2013.
SLAJ views the press release as done in very bad taste, especially so when the release categorically blankets the whole media in Sierra Leone as bad, without any conscious effort to distinguish those who have been practicing professionally and upholding the ethics of the profession.
Sierra Leone and its Failed Judiciary - Justice and Human Rights Standards in Sierra Leone

The idea of equal protection is the idea of legislated equality. There are also notion of fairness, goodness, fraternity, justice, and social justice in the concept. There is no conception of liberty, because equal protection is about the creation of civil rights, not liberty. A rather sharp distinction is made between civil rights and civil liberties, as below:
Civil Rights - based on constitutional rights to Equality claims ( equal before law, before state, in possession of rights, freedom from unjustifiable discrimination, to be treated the same)
Civil Liberties - based on the constitutional to liberty claims ( economic rights, to dispose of property in any way seen fit, freedom to select and choose, to act nearly any way whatsoever).
President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma has on Tuesday December 3rd said that no country can be truly democratic without the fullest participation and positive contributions of the disability community, which is the largest minority group in the nation.

The Judges of the Residual Special Court for Sierra Leone (RSCSL) have elected Justice Philip Nyamu Waki of Kenya as President of the Residual Special Court. The Judges also elected Justice Jon Kamanda of Sierra Leone as Vice President of the Court.
Justice Waki joined the Special Court in 2012 as an Alternate Appeals Judge for the Taylor appeal. Before joining the Special Court, Justice Waki served as a judge of the Kenya Court of Appeal in 2003, after having been a Judge of the High Court of Kenya for nine years. Prior to 1995, he was in private law practice in Kenya since he was called to the Bar in 1975. Justice Waki has worked actively for reform within the Kenyan judiciary.

In 2008 the International Commission of Jurists (Kenya) conferred the "Jurist of the Year Award" upon Justice Waki. He has served as Vice President of the East African Judges and Magistrates Association, and in 2012 was appointed by the Director of UNEP as a member of the International Advisory Council on Environmental Justice.
