The Moment in Time documents the uncertain days of the beginning of World War II when it was feared the Nazis were developing the atomic bomb. The history of the bomb’s development is traced through recollections of those who worked on what was known as “the gadget”. [6/2000] [Science] [Show ID: 5090]




Tony Matterhorn – Contributed
A disgruntled promoter has come forward demanding that selector/artiste Tony Matterhorn return his deposit of $90,000.

According to Wrenroy Smith, he contacted Matterhorn in December to do a show in Annotto Bay, St Mary. Smith said he and Matterhorn agreed on a price and he sent him the money through Western Union.

“I booked Matterhorn for Girls Graduation – an all-white edition fund-raising event which was to be held on April 7. Matterhorn told me his price for the event, I sent him the deposit and he collected it. I booked him, Swatch International and Jamrock sound. I got a message that Matterhorn had double-booked the date, so I contacted him and he asked if I could switch the dates. I told him no because I had already paid for the venue and printed up the flyers. Matterhorn said he would send back my deposit in two days,” Smith said.

The promoter says four months had now passed and he still has not received his money from Matterhorn.

bills to pay

“He told me he had his bills to pay etc., it’s back and forth with his stories. He deleted me from BBM. I was told I could collect the money in New York when Matterhorn came. He gave me a phone number, and the number was not working. I contacted him when he was back in Jamaica and he gave me another excuse about the phone. He changed his number so now I have no way of contacting him,” Smith said.

The promoter said he sent Matterhorn US $1,065 which is the equivalent to J$90,000. He also emailed THE WEEKEND STAR the receipt showing the Western Union transaction.

“I have my receipt, flyers from the show, etc. How can you want to change the date from somebody who has already paid you? I’m trying to get him to give me my money back. He breached the contract,” Smith said.

He further went on to say that he would now have to board a flight to come to Jamaica to deal with the matter.

“I have dealt with Bounty Killer and Vybz Kartel and they never gave me any problems. This is the first time in years that I’ve had this problem. Matterhorn said he wanted $180,000 for the show, he’s not even worth it. If I can’t get my money by the end of the month, then I am going to sue him. I am going to make an example out of Tony Matterhorn for this,” Smith warned.

Adding that the money owed to him by Matterhorn would be given away to persons who are in need of it.

“He’s taking money from people who need it. I have this event every year in honour of my mother – the Barbara Gordon Foundation. Matterhorn blatantly took the money, but I will not stop, I will make an example of Matterhorn,” Smith said.

When contacted, Matterhorn’s booking agent said she was unaware of the situation. She told THE WEEKEND STAR that the selector was off the island for some shows in the UK.

Meanwhile, Matterhorn took to his Twitter page to rant about the issue. In his numerous tweets, he bashed the promoter in question, the media and a popular website.

In one of his cleaner tweets, he said, “I’ve been in the biz bout 24 years and mi nuh beg friends nor try to rob any promoters before or u wud hear bout it long time now … .”





Man Denies Rape, Claims Manhood too Small0 Comments

A BULAWAYO courtroom had to be cleared so that prison wardens could examine a man charged with rape after he claimed that his male member was so small there was no way he could have committed the crime.
Joel Ndebele (34) of Dingumuzi Township in Plumtree was accused of raping his ex-girlfriend in August last year soon after being released from prison. But he stunned a packed courtroom last week when he told Bulawayo regional magistrate, Owen Tagu that he could not have committed the crime because his manhood was shrinking and had become so short it was impossible to have penetrative intercourse.

Prosecutors said Ndebele, who had been in jail since December 2010, decided to visit his lover a day after being released on August 7. She however told him she had married somebody else and that their relationship could not continue. Ndebele then invited her to his homestead so they could discuss the issue and threatened to kill her and her husband when she refused.

The woman then reluctantly followed him to his house where she was detained over night. The court heard that Ndebele raped her twice before releasing her in the morning. The woman returned home but did not tell her husband about the attack or report the matter to the police.

However, on August 30 she allegedly saw Ndebele following her with an empty bottle and ran into a nearby house where one of the occupants happened to be a police officer and reported the rape.

But Ndebele shocked the packed courtroom when he said there was no way he could have raped her because his manhood had long been shrinking, leaving him ill-equipped to commit the alleged crime. The prison wardens who examined him told the magistrate that his male member was, indeed, small.

Prosecutor Jabulani Mhlanga then asked the court for time have Ndebele examined by medical experts. The magistrate allowed the request and remanded Ndebele in custody to February 23.


Psalm 5

For the director of music. For pipes. A psalm of David.

1 Listen to my words, Lord,
consider my lament.
2 Hear my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.
3 In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.
4 For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
with you, evil people are not welcome.
5 The arrogant cannot stand
in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;
6 you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
you, Lord, detest.
7 But I, by your great love,
can come into your house;
in reverence I bow down
toward your holy temple.
8 Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness
because of my enemies—
make your way straight before me.
9 Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;
with their tongues they tell lies.
10 Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
for they have rebelled against you.
11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
12 Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
