first_imgJames Allen was on Friday remanded to prison when he appeared before a city magistrate to answer to a robbery under arms charge.Allen denied that on March 14, 2019, while in the vicinity of Waterloo Street, Georgetown, and while being armed with a knife, he robbed Timothy Broach of his cellphone and a gold chain valued $33,000.The court heard that the matter was reported to the police by the victim and as they were attempting to arrest Allen, he allegedly used the same weapon to inflict wounds on an officer.As a result, he was shot once to his left foot by the officer.In court on Friday, the prosecution opposed bail on the grounds of the serious nature of the offence and the fact that a dangerous weapon was used during the ordeal.Further, the prosecutor cited the fact that the 25-year-old man was also charged and convicted in 2018 for a matter of similar nature.The court was also informed that on the day of the alleged robbery, a search was carried out on the person of the defendant and the virtual complainant’s cellphone was found in his pocket.In Allen’s defence, he told Magistrate Leron Daly that on the day in question, he was only carrying his key ring when he was shot by the police.“The only thing I had pun me was me key ring and it contain a flick knife and de police shoot me in me foot boy,” Allen stated. The case will continue on April 12, 2019.last_img read more

first_img“I knew I had it going early on,” said Braxton. “Usually I come in to play tough defense, but tonight I was an offensive player.” Antelope Valley hung close through the first 10 minutes of the game. The Marauders trailed 21-17 midway through the first half following two scores on consecutive possessions by Juliet Masei. Masei had a team-high 18 points. The Mounties followed Masei’s score with a 25-4 run from which Antelope Valley would not recover. Leading 29-17, sopohomore Sam Cardeno stole the ball near midcourt and hit a 3-pointer. Tay Hester added another 3-pointer on the next possession. After a hook shot by Antelope Valley’s Tracey Wittebolle ended a 14-point run, Braxton found herself open behing the arc on four consecutive possessions. She hit three of the four shots to open a 46-21 lead. “When she’s got the hot hand and they aren’t getting in her face, she’s unstoppable,” said Mt. SAC coach Laura Beeman. The top-ranked Mt. SAC women’s basketball team proved there’s no defense for hot shooting, hitting 11 of 21 3-pointers en route to an 89-54 victory over eighth-seeded Antelope Valley on Saturday. Freshman Tanisa Braxton scored a game-high 20 points coming off the bench for the Mounties. She made 5 of 7 3-point attempts. center_img Fullerton 77, SBVC 69 The San Bernardino Valley College women’s basketball team had already gone farther than it ever had before. But the Wolverines fell short of their much larger goal. Fullerton denied SBVC its first-ever trip to the State Tournament, with a 77-69 victory on Saturday at the Hornet’s Nest in a Southern California Regional game. Fullerton (27-8), seeded No. 5 in the South, advances to Fresno for the state quarterfinals for the first time since 1998. The 13th-seeded Wolverines, who recorded the first playoff win in the program’s history last week in an upset of Orange Coast, finished 20-10. “The game was very physical, and in the first half I think the officials got caught up with the fans,” SBVC second-year coach Sue Crebbin said. “They have a homecourt advantage. I think they (officials) settled down in the second half.” MEN Saddleback 72, SBVC 68 The San Bernardino Valley College men’s basketball team endured difficult times this season, and Saturday night’s 72-68 loss to Saddleback in the Southern California junior college playoffs was another example of how the team shared strength through the hardships. Saddleback (25-7) overcame Valley’s pressure defense to advance to the eight-team state tournament that begins Thursday in Fresno. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

FRESNO – Less than a mile from spinach fields growing in a valley along California’s coastal mountain range, investigators isolated a deadly strain of E. coli that is responsible for last year’s outbreak that killed three people and sickened more than 200, state and federal officials said Friday. Though investigators still couldn’t say how the spinach became contaminated as they concluded their analysis, for the first time they announced bacterial samples from the outbreak strain were found in river water and animal feces on Paicines Ranch, a small grass-fed cattle operation that leased land to spinach grower Mission Organics. The report released Friday by the California Department of Health Services and U.S. Food and Drug Administration tracked the deadly strain from its victims to the San Benito County spinach fields where the bacteria likely originated. Officials did not recommend widespread mandatory guidelines to prevent future outbreaks, angering victims and their families.last_img read more

first_imgRoma are preparing an audacious double swoop for French defenders Samuel Umtiti and Mamadou Sakho.  The Italian side’s boss Rudi Garcia is determined to strengthen his back-line this summer and is keen on the Lyon and Liverpool centre-backs.  Roma sold star defender Alessio Romagnoli to AC Milan last week for £20m and are now set on finding a replacement.  And, according to Calciomercato, Garcia is hoping that he can bring in both Umtiti and Sakho to make up for the loss of Romagnoli.  However, they face a battle to lure either of the players away from their respective clubs.Sakho did not play for Liverpool in their opening Premier League game of the season but the 25-year-old remains a part of Brendan Rodgers’ plans.Lyon. meanwhile, have already rebuffed approaches from clubs enquiring after Umtiti this summer and are keen to keep hold of the 21-year-old.

first_img1 Patrick Roberts celebrates his goal Celtic put part-time Lincoln Red Imps in their place with a 3-0 Parkhead win that set up a Champions League third-round qualifying meeting with Astana.The Hoops had been embarrassed by a 1-0 defeat in last week’s first leg in Gibraltar, in what was new boss Brendan Rodgers’ first competitive game.However, Celtic burst out of the traps eager to get revenge and three first-half goals from defender Mikael Lustig, striker Leigh Griffiths and winger Patrick Roberts had the tie finished before the break, with the second half a mere formality.The Scottish champions will fly to Kazakhstan next week and while Astana, who booked their place in the next round with a last-gasp winner against Lithuanian side Zalgiris, will present a bigger challenge, Rodgers will be pleased with the way his side handled this potentially tricky match.Celtic fans were given a pre-match boost when Bobby Lennox, who played in the club’s European Cup final win over Inter Milan in 1967, and Rosemary Burns, wife of former Celtic player and manager Tommy Burns, helped unfurl the 2015-16 Premiership flag to raucous cheers.Rodgers’ attacking set up – Erik Sviatchenko was the only recognised centre-back – saw the visitors blitzed from the first whistle.It looked like the home side had been awarded a penalty in the ninth minute when midfielder Stuart Armstrong went down in the box after a trip by defender Ryan Casciaro but, after consulting with his assistant, referee Bartosz Frankowski gave a free-kick at the edge of the box which Griffiths blazed over.Midfielder Callum McGregor then cracked the bar with a deflected strike from 20 yards before he had a toe-poked effort from 12 yards pushed past the post by Imps keeper Raul Navas for another fruitless corner.The breakthrough was, however, inevitable and Lustig’s goal in the 23rd minute came when Lincoln failed to clear Armstrong’s curling free-kick into the packed box.Skipper Scott Brown was involved and when the ball fell to the Sweden full-back he turned and swept it into the net.The Gibraltarians’ resistance was shattered and three minutes later Griffiths drove in a second from the edge of the box after cutting in from the right.In the 29th minute the impressive Roberts worked a one-two with McGregor and curled the ball past Navas from 10 yards for number three with the keeper denying Celtic striker Moussa Dembele six minutes later.Lincoln would have welcomed the interval, but early in the second half striker Lee Casciaro, who scored in Gibraltar, almost notched again when he got behind Sviatchenko, only to screw his shot wide of the far post.The visitors were enjoying some possession for the first time in the match but it was Griffiths who should have scored in the 65th minute when he met Lustig’s pinpoint cross with his head, only to miss the target.The luckless Dembele did the same with an angled drive from a more difficult position before he was replaced by Nadir Ciftci – Kristoffer Ajer and Emilio Izaguirre had already come on as substitutes – before Sviatchenko headed a McGregor corner past the post.There was time for Navas to make a point-blank save from Griffiths, who then had the ball in the net only to be ruled offside, but by then it mattered little.last_img read more

first_imgThe new Donegal County Council has set up six new committees to address priority issues in the county over the next five years.As the 37 councillors sat for their first AGM in Lifford today, they decided to establish groups based on problems raised to them during canvassing in May. They are: MICA redress, Emergency Planning, Brexit, Fisheries, Agriculture, and a Donegal County Health Committee.On the future of MICA redress, North Inishowen Fianna Fáil Cllr Martin McDermott said: “I think it is vitally important that we start off this new term with a clear road ahead in relation to MICA. Families living in the nightmare that they are living in over the last 6,7,8 years, it has to be resolved.”As the government delivers funding for redress on MICA-affected homes Cllr McDermott said the council must react to get the scheme up and running.He added: “I feel now as a council the ball is going to be kicked back into our court and we are the ones that are going to have to deliver here in this county.”The Emergency Planning committee was set up to set out a protocol for flooding, gorse fires and severe weather events in Donegal. They will meet twice annually. “This obviously is a very important committee as the weather is so unpredictable and ever-changing. We have very limited resources in this county and such a large county of coast and inland and we have an awful lot of challenges. As the saying goes: Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail.”The Brexit committee plans to meet bimonthly to make plans to prepare Donegal for Brexit and invite Oireachtas members and SPC chairs.Sinn Féin Cllr Marie Therese Gallagher said: “Brexit is going to be a massive issue and we are living in this county in complete unknown.”She added: “We have to be as ready as we can be. We have lobbying to do, solutions to come up and coming together, through this committee, as representatives of the county will give greater weight to the outcome.”Independent Cllr Niamh Kennedy said the Fisheries committee will include Inland Fisheries members. “There are loads of issues around our inland fisheries, whether it be safety, quotas and there has always been that want to include fisheries in talks,” Cllr Kennedy said.Cllr Bernard McGuinness said that Agriculture is the largest industry in Donegal and stressed the importance of supporting farmers.The Fine Gael Cllr said: “There are many difficulties faced in the farming industry but there are many organisations representing many sectors, it would be our hope that we can bring those organisations into work with our committee to examine the difficulties and see can we liaise with government on them. “But also to support farming communities in every way we can, supporting agricultural shows, supporting one of the biggest problems they have – the insurance industry,” Cllr McGuiness added.  The Donegal County Health Committee was proposed by Cllr Marie Therese Gallagher, who said it was in response to ‘heart wrenching’ and ‘unspeakable’ stories from the public shared during the canvassing period. The committee will give the public a voice on health issues with 12 council members, Oireachtas members and administration staff alongside health service representatives and lobby groups.New council forms six committees on priority issues was last modified: June 7th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:agricultureBrexitDonegal County CouncilFisherieshealthMICAlast_img read more

first_imgThere has been a trend in deep space astronomy to find more and more mature-looking stars and galaxies farther back in time (04/06/2005, 03/10/2005, 07/08/2005).  That trend just doubled or tripled.  An announcement in Nature1 (see press release by European Southern Observatory), a thousand galaxies were found at distances corresponding to estimated ages of 9 to 12 billion years, just 10% to 30% the presumed age of the universe.  “To our surprise,” one team member stated, this is “two to six times higher” than previous finds.  “These observations will demand a profound reassessment of our theories of the formation and evolution of galaxies in a changing Universe,” he said.  Science Now quoted an astronomer who doubted the counts, but more out of disbelief than counter-evidence.  The survey team remained confident that their numbers, arrived at by a “brute force” technique that avoided “prior assumptions,” are solid.1LeFevre et al., “A large population of galaxies 9 to 12 billion years back in the history of the Universe,” Nature 437, 519-521 (22 September 2005) | doi: 10.1038/nature03979.More and more structure earlier and earlier – does this sound like evolution or creation?  Evolutionary biology has a Cambrian explosion.  Evolutionary cosmology has a structure explosion.  Creation has abrupt appearance intelligently guided and designed by an adequate cause.  Explosions?  We have no need of that hypothesis.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_imgAt NAB 2019, Teradek announced the Bolt 4K wireless transmitter, which offers a seamless feed at 2160p60 HDR with zero delay.Teradek didn’t stop when they announced the Ace 500; they also unveiled a showstopper of another wireless transmitter — the Bolt 4K. It’s obviously meant for higher-end productions, but nevertheless, this thing just won over NAB, so, by gosh, we’re going to cover it!Apart from the apparently flawless video transmission, one of the biggest selling points is the Bolt’s “Unhackable Image Transmission,” about which the company has said the following:Bolt 4K offers the industry’s best protection against prying eyes with AES-256 encryption and RSA 1024 key pairing. Combined, these two technologies ensure nobody can decrypt your wireless feed or connect another receiver to your system without explicit authorization.In terms of compatibility, each Bolt system works with one another, and they’re multi-cast capable up to six receivers, even if the model is different. As for mounting, the new system is adaptable and works well with pretty much whatever you need to attach it to.Bolt 4K transmitters offer various mounting options, including an ARRI ⅜-16” Pin-Lock mounting point for camera arms, as well as an optional camera-back mount with Gold/V-Mount pass-through power.Both transmitter and receiver feature OLED displays. Easily access Bolt 4K settings and software features such as spectrum analyzer, channel selection, 3D LUTs and more.The transmitters will also pair with your iPhone or iPad, allowing you to watch your feed comfortably There are two different range options (750 ft. and 1500 ft.) to consider:Bolt 4K 750 TX/RX Set — $3,990.00Bolt 4K 1500 TX/RX Set — $7,990.00So, yeah.Images via Teradek.Looking for more coverage of NAB 2019?
