When the said object was retrieved, it was found to be an unlicensed gun.last_img read more

Case dismissed against woman who threw muddy water on PPP protestors

first_imgThe woman, who allegedly threw muddy gutter water on a group of People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPPC) protesters on July 19, 2019, at Barrack and High Streets, Georgetown, had the charge dismissed against her. The case was dismissed after the Virtual Complainant failed to show up on Tuesday at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to give evidence. The case was called on several occasions but the VC was a no-show.At the court hearing, Cassandra Amsterdam, 24, a cosmetologist who is a squatter at Lot 48 Barrack and High Streets, Georgetown, appeared before Magistrate Rondell Weaver, who dismissed the charge.Reports are on July 19, as hundreds of PPP supporters were protesting in front of the Guyana Elections Commission, Amsterdam hurled expletives at the protesters and then proceeded into her home, brought out a cutlass and threatened the peaceful protesters.The woman, along with others in the yard, were seen with knives in their hands threatening the protesters. Several of the protesters said that Amsterdam then took a bucket and dipped it in a nearby gutter and threw the muddy water at them. She then ran inside, picked up a pitchfork and proceeded to exit the yard with intentions of confronting the protesters.Police ranks who were stationed at the protest quickly disarmed the pregnant woman and arrested her. She was then taken away in handcuffs.During her first court appearance, the woman claimed that on July 19, her child was asleep and the protesters were making “a set of unnecessary noise in front her house”.Amsterdam further claimed that she threw a cup of clean water into the crowd but it did not catch anyone, after which she apologised for the act.last_img read more

Plan districts to safeguard democracy

first_img Canciamilla knows that fair districts give voters a real chance to influence policy. And he knows the current hopes of an independent Mr. Smith going to Sacramento are a long shot, unless of course, Mr. Smith has millions of his own money to spend. A neutral redistricting plan will help independent candidates by reducing the political dominance of special interests and party apparatchiks during the primary season. In primaries, candidates do not need to appeal to cross-over voters or independents. Successful primary candidates focus on making a strong pitch to the political base within their party and its biggest supporters – usually powerful special interests groups. Candidates emerging from labor unions, for instance, tend to fare quite well in Democratic primaries because they bring a ready-made “base” with them to the polls. In a more competitive system, without tailor-made district boundaries, candidates and platforms reflecting the diversity of our actual neighborhoods would be more successful. The fact that partisans in both parties claim that changing the rules of redistricting will hamper their party’s political fortunes reflects how the current system of drawing political boundaries has morphed into an exercise of political power. Meanwhile, most voters would agree that political boundaries should be drawn to protect democracy, not circumvent it for special interests and a few politicians.

The big USC-UCLA showdown is on the horizon, but imagine if there was a twist, and UCLA was allowed to choose USC’s lineup. To maximize its own chances, UCLA would likely pick a lineup that would bench Trojan All-Americans like Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush. While the concept seems absurd, that is pretty much how we let the political party in power pick and choose our legislative and congressional districts in California. Proposition 77 would create a more competitive climate in elections by removing the ability of elected officials to essentially draw their own districts, handing the process over to a panel of retired judges. But unlike tilting the rules in college football, which would create a huge advantage for one team, redistricting does not guarantee the dominance of either major political party. Consider the Republicans’ fate following the contentious redistricting battle of 1991. Legislative Democrats submitted their favored maps to then-Republican Gov. Pete Wilson, who subsequently vetoed them. The California Supreme Court stepped in, appointing three special masters to craft a redistricting plan. And the fairness of that new plan would be seen in the following several election cycles. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week By 1994, with the new districts in place, Republicans gained a slim 41-39 majority in the California State Assembly for the first time in more than 20 years, ending the long reign of Speaker Willie Brown. But between 1994 and 2000, Republicans promptly lost 11 Assembly seats back to Democrats, actually placing them in a worse balance of power than before the fair redistricting plan. Many Republicans rightly blame the troubles of that period not on flawed district maps, but on a misguided and dysfunctional state party that lacked a cohesive vision. Politics should be about serving your constituents, not computer-drawn maps that ensure success. It is now well known that in California’s 2004 election cycle, every single congressional, Assembly and state Senate seat up for grabs stayed with the party that held it. It’s hard to believe not a single seat changed parties at a time when voters were less than thrilled with the direction of the state. But for many, politics has become about protecting power. Republicans are supporting redistricting here in California, where they hope to pick up seats in the state Legislature, but are fighting the same concept in other states, like Ohio, where they are currently in a better position. Reform-minded California Assemblyman Joe Canciamilla, D-Pittsburg, is bucking many in his party by supporting the plan. “If we fail in this effort, we are providing a mandate for those who want to keep the status quo,” he said. last_img read more

DD Motoring: Taking home the turf

first_img“What is this photo for anyway?” One of the crew enquired as I tried to get everyone on one side of the camera. “Get in the John Deere, sir,” I said. He replied: “Jesus sir if I kneel down, I might never get up again.”Saturday wasn’t a great day for the bog, but it’s the day that this gang from the Kilmacrennan area had planned to get their turf home.Normally the first few weeks in August are ideal with the hill nice and dry for tractors and trailers to drive in as close as possible to load the bagged turf. Advertisement But this last few days heavy downpours have made conditions very sticky.So a few quads with small trailers got the turf to the firmer ground where it was loaded up on to every type of trailer available from an Ivor Williams to low loaders to the traditional turf trailer with the high cribsWe got a call on Saturday afternoon to say a lot was working at their turf in Glenveigh area.These boys all turned out to be from the Kilmacrennan area when we caught up with them. Advertisement Five tractors Four quads and a four-wheel-drive jeep all landed at the Glenveigh Inn on the mountain road loaded down with bags of turf.Taking home the Turf.A view on the mountain road with Muckish Mountain in the background as a tractor and trailer gets ready for the road home with a load of turf for the home. Photo Brian McDaid.One of the tractors “75 DL” a beautiful Massey Ferguson was easily older than half of the crew that was out on the Hill that day.“Seamus the nurse”As the crew finally lined out last Saturday last for the photo they reminded me of my days out in the bog giving a man a long since passed away a hand with his turf.He was locally known up the Glen as “Seamus the nurse” after his mother who was a nurse in Letterkenny. Seamus Mc Devitt was a storeman in Hegarty’s Auto Services where I once worked. Its was the late 1970s and Seamus was back in Donegal after spending a few years in Boston.The late Seamus Ò ‘The Nurse’ Ó McDevitt who were spent many’s the day in the bog with saving the turf and enjoying the craic.In the summer evenings and the odd Saturday, there was always a few from the garage who would go out to the bog above Breenagh and gives Seamus a hand with the turf.For a townie like me, it was an all-new experience to spend evenings in the bog footing turf, midges taking lumps out us but the craic was good.Listening to Glen men telling you to rub the bog water on your face to keep the midgies away and not realising until you’re sitting in Babs Mc Ginley’s pub for a mineral afterwards seeing your reflection, looking more like a coal miner covered in the wet peat that dried into your face. The cutting crew pictured with tractor-trailers leaded to the brim with turf for the winter. Photo Brian McDaid.Looking at the crew through the lens of the camera over 40 years on, last Saturday evening they look like time has stood still especially with the old Massey’s tractors and the original turf trailer with the high cribs in the background, and a crew having the craic saving turf.They too will go on their different way, some may be emigrating like our Seamus did or heading to college or starting work.Proud pensionersOver the last 30 years, I always was aware of different people young and not so young working in the bog taking great pride in the seasonal job that they enjoyed.I recall catching up with the late Mary Mc Menamin from Kirkstown in Letterkenny at the top of Meenaroy with her husband Jim who proudly told me they were both pensioners still footing their own turf.Jim and the late Mary Mc Menamin from Kirkstown, Letterkenny, pictured on a hillside on Meenaroy Mountain as they “foot” their turf to dry them out before they are transported home Photo Brian McDaidOr the young lad a few years before that, Anthony Browne out working at the foot of Muckish mountain busy bagging turf with his family continuing the tradition from generation to generation.Four-year-old Anthony Browne takes advantage of the good weather as he helps his family take home the turf at Devlin which is as the foot of Muckish Mountain. Photo By Brian McDaidAnd with that, the engines are all powered up on the line of tractors quads and jeeps as they drop in behind the oldest tractor a beautiful Massey 135 and head off on the last leg of the journey home to keep the home fire burning.Happy memories folks.DD Motoring: Taking home the turf was last modified: August 14th, 2019 by Brian McDaidShare 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)last_img read more

Coming Soon: Apps That Use Your DNA

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#health#web Ultimately, it’s your choice whether to do one of these tests. The price is still an obstacle for many, but that will continue to come down (it started out at $1000 when it launched at the end of 2007).The results could potentially be of great benefit to my health. I’m pretty excited about that alone. And I’m cautiously excited about the future applications by third-party developers, because it will hopefully enable me to do useful things with my genetic data.Have you had a DNA test done and if so, did you find it useful? Earlier this month, I finally purchased a DNA test at 23andMe, the personal genetics company based in Silicon Valley. When the test kit arrived, I duly spat into the plastic tube and posted it back. It isn’t cheap, US$299 plus postage, but the results promise to tell me about my ancestry, inherited traits, and any possible congenital risks. All of this is part of the service 23andMe provides, but the recent announcement of an API could lead to even more enlightenment and uses for your genetic data.23andMe’s API (application programming interface) allows authorized third-party developers to build applications that make use of your genetic data – if you give permission! The latter point will be a big concern for many people, because according to API specialist blog ProgrammableWeb, the 23andMe API gives access to personally identifiable data such as profile information. As a new 23andMe user myself, I’m going to want some reassurance from 23andMe before I give my permission. Giving third parties access to that kind of data could have big implications down the road, for example being refused access to medical insurance or losing out on a job. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… But let’s assume for a moment that the privacy protection gets tighter, or 23andMe is able to convince me and others that their genetic data is safe. What kind of things can we expect from the API?At the Quantified Self Conference in Palo Alto earlier this month, 23andMe director of engineering Mike Polcari announced the API. Polcari told genetics news website BioInform that conference participants expressed “a lot of enthusiasm” about the API. He mentioned some examples of apps that might be developed:[…] apps that would incorporate an individual’s DNA into his or her family tree; apps for running candidate gene studies using data from CureTogether — a community-based health site that 23andMe acquired this summer; and a sleep tracking app that would import SNPs associated with caffeine metabolism and circadian rhythms.The API may also enable researchers “to perform linkage studies or genome-wide association studies using 23andMe data,” Polcari told BioInform.These potential genetic applications won’t assuage the main concern people have with 23andMe and its DNA tests: do you really want to know about your genetic risks, given that it could cause more worry than good? A discussion on Q&A web service Quora has 30 mostly pro replies to that question. Jason Menayan found his results to be “incredibly useful” – for example, he discovered that he is a slow caffeine metabolizer and so “should limit my caffeine intake for my cardiovascular health.”center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts richard macmanuslast_img read more
