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.

ACADEMIC CHEATING AND ITS NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES: WHAT, HOW, WHERE, WHEN, AND WHY?
“The battle is neither for the swift, nor the strong but those who endure” Those with the swiftness of a Dove and the pervading endurance of an Eagle let them fly; phoenix-like, slowly, but surely, we’d trot our way through” “Those who deny freedom to others deserves it not themselves”-Abraham Lincoln
Sometime last March, I listened to the regular BBC “Africa Have Your Say” programme and the subject of the discussion in question was academic cheating especially at tertiary level acrossthe Globebut with emphasis on Africa. The discussants, mainly youth who had either gone or are going through the rigours of University education debated the topic bringing to bear their various experiences and or responses to challenges during their days in the University.
On Tuesday the Radisson Blu Mammy Yoko Hotel opened its doors today after a complete refurbishment which has focused on stylish and spacious interiors and a welcoming atmosphere.
The Radisson Blu Mammy Yoko is Sierra Leone’s first five star hotel and achieving those sorts of standards has taken time and the entire refurbishment of the building to Radisson Blu’s exacting standards. The hotel features 172 rooms and suites, many with breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Freetown, April 5, 2014: The Electoral Commission of SLAJ wishes to inform the membership that two (2) of the three (3) nominees deemed to be ineligible to contest for the position of IMC Commissioners under the Broadcast Category filed an appeal within the 48 hour window given to them. The Commission examined the appeals and reached the following conclusion:
I want to pay a glowing tribute to a statesman of the 21st century modern Sierra Leone. Born in Pendembu, Kailahun District on February 16, 1932, former President, Dr. Ahmad Tejan Kabbah rose to the rank as Permanent Secretary in the Civil Service hierarchy only to flee Sierra Leone after President Siaka Stevens won the 1967 hotly contested election. While at the UN, he acquired the cherished wisdom and the magnetic gift of negotiation – something he sacredly used during the peace talk with the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) rebel leader, Corporal Foday Sabana Sankoh both in Abidjan, Cote d ‘ivoire and Lome, Togo in West Africa.
In a landmark judgment delivered by the Hon. Justice M.A. Paul, in the case of The State vs. Solomon Katta and Four Others, the Anti Corruption Commission successfully secured conviction for the offence of Unexplained Wealth for the first time in the history of Sierra Leone.
Prosecution for the offence of unexplained wealth has been sparingly applied in corruption cases the world over due to difficulties in the investigative process and proof of the elements constituting the offence. More importantly however, the greatest obstacle has been political interference in the successful prosecutions of such cases. Despite the challenges, the ACC braved the odds and presented evidenced acceptable by the Court to meet the burden of proof beyond reasonable doubt.
Unexplained wealth is defined as where ‘any person who, being or having been a public officer maintains a standard of living above that which is commensurate with his present or past official emoluments; or; ‘is in control of pecuniary resources or property disproportionate to his present or past official emoluments, unless he gives a satisfactory explanation to the court as to how he was able to maintain such a standard of living or how such pecuniary resources or property came under his control, commits an offence.
Recent high-profile cases have focused attention on the transfer of assets abroad by heads of state and other senior officials from developing countries in amounts that far exceed their legitimate sources of income. Article 20 of the United Nations Convention against Corruption, (UNCAC) criminalizing illicit enrichment, was drafted to address this issue. However, very few of the states parties to the UNCAC have introduced this offence in their legal systems, largely because of due process concerns. The challenge is to find ways to implement Article 20 that balance the rights of the accused with the right of society to recover illicitly acquired national wealth.
The Commissioner of the Anti-C0rruption Commission (ACC) wishes to inform the general public that it has pleased His Excellency the President, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, to appoint Mr. Shollay Davies Deputy Commissioner of the ACC, subject to Parliamentary approval.
Prior to his new appointment, Mr. Shollay Davies was Director of Public Education and External Outreach of the Commission. He holds a Higher Teachers’ Certificate (HTC) from the then Milton Margai Teachers College (MMTC), a Bachelor of Science (BSc.) Degree from the Njala University College and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the Institute of Public Education and Management. He also has undergone several professional trainings, including but not limited to, Community Mobilization, Anti-Corruption and Fiduciary Management, within and outside Sierra Leone.
President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma on Wednesday 9th April assured the West African Road Safety Organization (WARSO) delegation of government’s continuous support in the development and implementation of road safety measures in Sierra Leone and the sub-region as a whole.
“I want to assure you that we are committed to the convention,” he said.
President Koroma gave this assurance while receiving WARSO delegation led by the Director General of the Sierra Leone Road Transport Authority, Dr Sarah Bendu, during a courtesy call on him at State House, Freetown.
He described the visit as timely as government was in the process of improving on the road network in the country; between districts, regional and headquarter towns, which according to the President will necessitate full regulation of recklessness on the part of drivers amongst other road users.
