H View escape with draw

H View escape with draw

first_img “We came not to lose and having drawn the game I think a point is good enough,” Bernard said. “I lift my hat to all the players and I give them credit for playing hard from start to end. Apart from that it was a great game and we look forward to moving out of the danger zone,” added Bernard. He had Johnson to thank, as the keeper made some fantastic saves to deny Allan Ottey and Dwayne Ambusley. His dive to the right to stop a rare attempt at goal for the MBU captain was the pick of the lot and highlighted Harbour View’s confidence as the match wore on. Slavisa Bozicic, MBU’s Serbian technical director, decried his team’s many missed chances, stating his players were unlucky not to score, but vowed they will rebound in their next outing. “We had many chances to score but just couldn’t hit the target today. It was an otherwise good match. The opposition played hard and the result, although we would have preferred a win, is not a bad one,” said Bozicic. WESTERN BUREAU: Harbour View FC returned to capital city Kingston following a morale-boosting 0-0 draw yesterday at Wespow Park, the home of Red Stripe Premier League champions Montego Bay United (MBU). Down in the doldrums of the league table, Harbour View had a superb game from goalkeeper Joel Johnson, who made four spectacular diving saves late in the second half to deny MBU the win. The visitors were left to complete the game with 10 players, after Ricardo Harriott was issued a second caution for a crunching tackle on forward Dino Williams in the 67th minute. Williams had earlier picked up his customary caution also, when the referee booked him for lashing out at his marker. But the striker did have an early chance in the sixth minute in an otherwise cold display, but Joel was in the right place to scoop the ball up. Harbour View, sitting last in the table with three points, stemmed their tide of losses with yesterday’s draw. They previously recorded a single victory and three straight losses. However, they will feel they are on the right track, following the draw at MBU, as mentioned by coach Ludlow Bernard. GREAT GAMElast_img read more

Additional arrests for illegal shotgun, cartridges found at Kupang Backdam

Additional arrests for illegal shotgun, cartridges found at Kupang Backdam

first_imgThe 39-year-old chef who has been arrested by the police following the discovery of an unlicensed shotgun along with live cartridges at the mining camp that he works is now being joined by a number of his colleagues.Reports are that although the chef was the only one at the mining camp when the police made the discovery on Friday, other miners who work and occupy the same camp were taken into Police custody.At this point, it is unclear as to whom the illegal gun and ammunition belonged to but investigations are currently underway, said F Division Commander, Kevin Adonis.He told Guyana Times on Sunday that the chef along with his colleagues are being escorted to the Bartica Police Station but according to Commander Adonis, it will take some time to reach Bartica taking into consideration the rough terrain topped with transportation difficulties.The Commander explained that until the owner of the shotgun and cartridges comes forward, those in custody will remain so until further notice.Reports are that ranks of F Division received a tip-off and went to Kupang Backdam, Cuyuni River, where a search was conducted and an unlicensed shotgun along with 29 live cartridges and an empty cartridge casing was found.The 38-year-old chef was immediately taken into Police custody where he is said to be co-operating with the police and assisting with investigations.In February of this year, the police arrested a miner who was found with an unlicensed revolver along with matching rounds of ammunition at Obama Road, Upper Mazaruni.Reports are that the ranks at the time were acting on information when they conducted a search on the miner and found the .38 revolver along with 10 matching rounds of ammunition.Also last month, a shopkeeper was also taken into Police custody when he was found to be in possession of a shotgun at Makari Landing, Upper Mazaruni River.The Plaisance, East Coast Demerara (ECD) man was observed by ranks, who were on patrol duties, to be acting in a suspicious manner.While he was being approached, he was seen throwing a long object into some nearby bushes. When the said object was retrieved, it was found to be an unlicensed gun.last_img read more

Listeriosis Update

first_imgPublic health officials say the confirmed death toll from the listeriosis outbreak is six — all in Ontario. Another six Canadians who died, including one on Vancouver Island, had the bacteria and, tests continue to determine if listeriosis was their cause of death. In all, there are now 26 confirmed cases and, 29 suspected ones. The latest confirmed case in BC is in Cranbrook and, the victim is a woman who had an underlying health condition and, is believed to have contracted the disease from hospital food… In addition, officials expect more cases in the weeks ahead, because listeriosis has an average incubation period of three weeks. However, BC’s Chief Medical Health Officer says the number of cases in this province is not growing. This is Doctor Perry Kendall….

Oh, what a gold web he weaves

Oh, what a gold web he weaves

first_img“Spider-Man 3” wasted no time scaling the heights of the box office record books as the third installment of the Marvel Comics franchise hit an estimated gross of $59 million Friday – the biggest opening day in the history of the movie industry. The first-day total puts the latest Peter Parker adventure on track to break the opening weekend record of $135 million set just last summer by “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.” The second “Pirates” movie had also held the previous single-day record of $55.8 million. The staggering total for “Spider-Man 3” was made possible by its showing in a record 4,252 theaters. In all, Sony Pictures Entertainment released 11,000 prints that gave megaplexes around the country the opportunity to show the movie on multiple screens. The results are good news for the studio, which spent a reported $250 million to $300 million to produce the movie, believed to be the most expensive ever made. Untold millions more were spent on advertising and marketing, which seems to have connected with moviegoers who arrived at The Grove theaters in Los Angeles on Saturday morning to take in the film. “I asked my parents to go and they were real excited to go, too,” said 18-year-old David Benjamin. “But we waited to come to an early-morning showing because it probably wouldn’t be as crowded as Friday or Thursday night. Spider-Man is probably the coolest of all the superheroes.” Benjamin’s mother, Patti Benjamin, was looking forward to seeing the movie with her husband and two sons. “I love it. It’s a great excuse for us to do something together as a family,” she said. “It’s (a movie that’s) fun. Nobody’s going to have to think too much; nobody’s going to worry about anything. “Everyone’s just going to sit back and have some popcorn and have a good time.” greg.hernandez@dailynews.com (818) 713-3758160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It doesn’t really get any better than this in terms of a summer kickoff.” House records also were reported throughout the country, with the ArcLight in Hollywood one of the two highest-grossing theaters in the country. By showing the movie on multiple screens for 24 hours beginning at 12:01 a.m. Friday, the ArcLight reported ticket sales of $144,926. But that’s not all.

THREE DONEGAL CREWS SET TO SAIL ROUND IRELAND TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR SAILABILITY

first_imgFEATURES: Donegal skippers and their crew members are busy preparing their boats to take part in the Round Ireland Sailability event.On June 26, three yachts will leave Greencastle with their owners and crew heading east to circumnavigate Ireland to raise awareness of sailing for persons with disabilities.They will be joined by another yacht at Carlingford. The skippers and their crew members are full steam ahead with their preparations.Foyle Sailability volunteers decided to take on this adventure to raise awareness of Sailability Ireland, a national organization aimed at increasing opportunities for people with disabilities to engage in sailing and water-based activities.The boats will stop at each of the Sailability centres round the island of Ireland where events will take place to mark their arrival.First stop will be at Belfast Lough Sailability centre at Carrickfergus. Bob Harper of BLS said told Donegal Daily, “We are thrilled Foyle Sailability volunteers are taking on this Round Ireland trip in the name of Sailability.“It will help raise awareness of the benefits of sailing, and in particular for people with disabilities.“We have been providing sailing to people with disabilities for over 15 years now and have first hand experience of the benefits it can provide.It’s wonderfully uplifting and a brilliant escape from the frustrations that disabled people face on land.“A lot of people think sailing is too expensive and inaccessible and because they’re disabled, it’s logistically impossible. “But this is just a myth. We constantly surprise people that they can sail, once in the boat, they are as capable as anyone else.”The yachts will set sail from Greencastle, Co. Donegal on Friday 26th June when there will also be a ‘Day of Fun and Games On and Off the Water’ for people with disabilities.With support from Loughs Agency under the EU SDF programme and MalinWaters, it should be a great day and well give our adventurous sailors a great send off on their journey which will take approximately TWO+ weeks making stops at Carrickfergus, Carlingford, Dunlaoghaire, Kinsale, Galway and Killybegs.Ciaran Murphy, Sailability Ireland, added, “We look forward to welcoming the Foyle Sailability members to each of the centres around the coast and raising wareness of the benefits of sailing for people with disabilities throughout the island of Ireland.” Supported by MalinWaters which is funded by the EU INTERREG IVA cross border programme under the Sail West project, Joy Harron of Donegal Tourism said, “The emergence of the MalinWaters region has been a major milestone in the development and promotion of marine leisure and tourism and we are delighted to give support to Foyle Sailability and their members who are undertaking this Round Ireland Passage to promote Sailability Ireland.”THREE DONEGAL CREWS SET TO SAIL ROUND IRELAND TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR SAILABILITY was last modified: June 26th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:AwarenessDisabilityFeaturesGreencastlenewsSail Round IrelandSailabilityYachtlast_img read more

A plan for water

A plan for water

first_imgIf there’s one thing that was most pivotal to the development and growth of modern-day Los Angeles, it was water. Water is the lifeblood of this arid basin. That’s why the city’s move to put together a massive plan for new sewer lines, water plants and other water facilities to serve the continued growth of the city is absolutely essential. But whatever great ideas are encompassed in this document, we ask one thing: Don’t bring back the hare-brained proposal for a toilet-to-tap system to serve the San Fernando Valley. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Biomimetics Frontier: The Wild Wet

Biomimetics Frontier: The Wild Wet

first_imgSome animals have figured out how to turn wetness into an ally instead of a nuisance, and some research teams are hard on their heels trying to learn how to settle that frontier.Wet feet:  Geckos cling to walls and ceilings even when their feet are wet.  How do they do it?  It would be nice to know, because human adhesives typically get gooey and slippery when wet.  Kellar Autumn, the one who figured out how their feet cling to surfaces using atomic van der Waals forces, has been studying the effects of moisture on gecko feet.  According to Science Daily, he and his team at Lewis and Clark College figured out via experiments on discarded gecko setae that the cling isn’t due to capillary action.  Composed of keratin, the setae become softer when moist.  This makes them deformable and creates more adhesion, giving the animals an even better grip than their remarkable cling on dry surfaces.Wet silk:  Another “completely counterintuitive” discovery was made about wet silk from silkworms.  Most man-made substances become more diffuse when wet, but silk becomes more concentrated.  Researchers at the Institut Laue-Langevin in Sweden, working with others from Oxford, first found that the silk proteins are hundreds of times more concentrated inside the silkworm than most proteins can be and remain stable.  “Even stranger, as the concentration drops the proteins begin to expand and flow, until they eventually clump together — this is the reverse of what we’d expected,” a team member said, according to Science Daily.     Silkworms exceed the capabilities of the scientists to control this substance.  The scientists lose control when the proteins get diluted.  “In the lab, the effect is a like a neat ball of string becoming unravelled into a big mess that ties itself in knots,” the article said.  “However, the silkworms are able to control this process so that the proteins are spun into highly ordered silk filaments as they unfold and begin to flow.  This surprising observation is a vital step towards understanding the liquid precursor, which is essential to synthesise silk and develop new materials with silk’s desirable mechanical properties.”Wet backs without sunburn:  Somehow little creatures called water fleas can live under UV radiation in their clear watery habitat without getting sunburn.  PhysOrg described how they manage without extra melanin – the dark protein that provides some UV protection in human skin.  The article did not explain how the water flea Daphnia does this trick in its Olympic Mountain pond environment.  Scientists at the University of Washington would like to know. Brooks Miner, who is using National Science Foundation funds to study the water flea, is learning his Darwin storytelling well.  Faced with no explanation for how the bugs shield themselves from ultraviolet light, he said, “It could be that they evolved to use other strategies because the ultraviolet isn’t as intense here.”  According to this notion, melanin slows down their growth, so “the water fleas in the Olympic Mountains apparently evolved less-costly means to deal with UV radiation.”  How they did that, he did not say.Miner’s little transgression illustrates how Darwinists take irrefutable evidence for design and subvert it into Darwinian storytelling, not because the evidence demands it (quite the contrary), but because the culture of storytelling Darwin created with his “one long argument” tall tale makes it a kind of expected tradition.  For more examples of this besetting sin of the Darwin Party, listen to Casey Luskin on an ID the Future podcast describe how several more of Nature’s list of “Evolutionary Gems” (see 01/02/2009) turn out to say, when the original sources are examined, almost nothing about evolution, but only add a “narrative gloss” to the explanation in spite of the evidence.  Meanwhile, the de-facto I.D. science of biomimetics marches on.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
