first_imgSpider-Man: Miles Morales is out now on the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5, and it continues the story of the titular Afro-Latino teenager, who first revealed that he had powers like Peter Parker in a post-credits scene in Marvel’s Spider-Man. And just like Insomniac Games’ original Spider-Man game, Spider-Man: Miles Morales also has two post-credits scenes. The first of them bears no connection to what happens in the new Spider-Man game and instead builds on the post-credits scene from Marvel’s Spider-Man, setting up Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 in the process. The second post-credits scene touches upon the ending of the Spider-Man: Miles Morales story and functions as an epilogue.Review: Spider-Man: Miles Morales Is Hanging by a Thread- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Warning: spoilers ahead for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.Spider-Man: Miles Morales post-credits sceneThe two-and-half-minute long Spider-Man: Miles Morales post-credits opens at New York’s Trinity Church. Miles looks out at the city before crouching down and placing the “Spacebound Young Researchers Award” — he won it with former best friend Phin Mason — on one of the outer platforms of the Trinity Church in her memory. The church was a favourite childhood haunt for the nerdy duo, as is revealed during Spider-Man: Miles Morales when the two meet there to find some middle ground.It’s clear that Phin’s death is deeply affecting Miles. On one hand, she was the Tinkerer, the leader of the high-tech criminal army the Underground that had brought war to Harlem. But at the same time, she sacrificed herself to save Harlem from the blast of the Roxxon reactor. Miles brings up his conflicting thoughts on a call with his mother Rio Morales and wonders why Phin would do that, despite losing her brother Rick to Roxxon’s experimental tech, which led her on her vengeance quest to begin with.Miles’ mother gives Miles some great advice with her response: “People are messy. Take your uncle Aaron [Davis aka the Prowler]. He’s the reason [Roxxon CEO Simon] Krieger is in jail, and he helped us get people out of Harlem. But every time I look at him, I think of all the pain he put your dad through. You don’t need to make a judgment on Phin’s life, mijo [my son], or her death. Just remember who she was and why you loved her.”Spider-Man: Miles Morales costs Rs. 3,999 / $50 on PS4 and PS5. Warning: spoilers ahead for Marvel’s Spider-Man.Spider-Man: Miles Morales mid-credits sceneThe minute-long Spider-Man: Miles Morales mid-credits sequence takes place entirely from the first-person point of view of Harry Osborn, who was seen in the Marvel’s Spider-Man post-credits scene. Harry is still floating in that green liquid and still has a black-coloured Venom-like symbiote crawling all over his arms and legs. Unlike last time, he seems to be conscious, with the radio — talking about the events of Spider-Man: Miles Morales — filtering through the glass cabinet Harry is being kept in.For those who’ve forgotten why Harry is in a suspended state, that’s because he suffers from Oshtoran Syndrome, a rare heritable neurological disorder, just as his mother Emily Osborn. Harry and his father Norman Osborn lost her when Harry was just 15, and after Harry’s condition became critical, Norman decided to pursue an experimental medical treatment that would take several years. Harry agreed and that’s how he ended up with a symbiote attached to him.- Advertisement – In the new Spider-Man: Miles Morales mid-credits scene, Norman soon walks in and the doctor gives him a quick report, noting that Harry’s vitals are good and brain activity is normal. Norman laments that he’s been in there a long time and then asks the doctor to pull him out. The doctor protests but Norman is having none of it, and demands him to get Harry out “now”. Norman then walks towards his son and nods his head, in a way that suggests he’s missed him. Harry is his only family, after all.spider man miles morales tinkerer phin mason spider man miles morales tinkerer phin masonPhin Mason / Tinkerer in Spider-Man: Miles MoralesPhoto Credit: Insomniac Games- Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgThe Jury of Criminal Court ‘C,’ last Tuesday evening brought down a guilty verdict against a finance officer from National Drug Service (NDS) for stealing US$179,183.06 and LD$958,247.08.through a fraudulent account he opened for the company at the First International Bank (FIB).It was after a four-week trial that the jury convicted Wesley Jlue for the commission of the crimes of theft of property and forgery, of which he was indicted by the grand jury for Montserrado County.The money was raised from the sale of malaria drugs donated to the NDS by Global Funds.According to the evidence presented at trial, Jlue, from November 2012 up to March 2014, maintained the fraudulent account in the name of NDS, at the FIB.He used the account and directed checks given to him for deposit into the company’s Global Funds account with another bank, Ecobank-Liberia.All the transactions with the FIB were done through the Reconciliation officer at that bank and any communication between him and the bank had to go through the bank’s appointed officer.Despite Jlue’s intimate involvement in all of the Global Funds’ dealings at Ecobank, he lied that his managing director, Beyan K. Johnson, instructed him to open the fraudulent account at FIB. “I have never taken any corporate action without the clear written or verbal instruction from my boss,” he told the jury.Over approximately two years, Jlue obtained hundreds of thousands of both United States and Liberian dollars from the Global Fund checks, which he then diverted to his personal account at FIB.Jlue also lied to the court saying that his boss, Johnson, prepared and signed the documents used to open the account at FIB purportedly for NDS to pay staff and customers because of the difficulty they were encountering in withdrawing money from the Global Funds account at Ecobank.In fact, the NDS never made a single withdrawal from FIB, and all their payments were made from Ecobank and the Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI) where the company’s Global Funds accounts were kept.For his crimes, the Reconciliation officer was suspended by his institution until he could restitute the amount which it is not clear he had done.The Global Fund is the world’s largest financier of anti-AIDS, TB and malaria programs and by mid-2012 had approved funding amounting to US$ 22.9 billion that supports more than 1,000 programs in 151 countries, including Liberia.Microsoft founder Bill Gates was one of the first private foundations among many bilateral donors to provide seed money for the project.NDS is the custodian of the Global Funds in the country. It is also responsible for supplying and sell drugs including HIV/AIDS and TB medications to public and private health centers.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
