first_img…after woman refuses to give evidenceSix months after Derrick Solomon, a taxi driver, was charged with attempting to kill his common-law wife, he walked out of the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts a free man on Tuesday after she refused to testify against him.Derrick SolomonThe 60-year-old man of Lot 10 Block F North Sophia, Georgetown, was charged for the attempted murder of Carol London on March 2, 2019, at their North Sophia, Georgetown residence, where the couple shared a common-law relationship for over 10 years.When the matter was called before Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus, London informed the court that she did not wish to proceed with the matter and would not offer evidence. As such, the case was discharged. The taxi driver was represented by Attorney-at-Law Dexter Todd. Previously, Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan had instructed that Solomon undergo a psychiatric evaluation, after his attorney had mentioned that Solomon had suffered from a memory lapse and was on medication, and for a period of time, he stopped taking his medicine.The results of the psychiatric evaluation later revealed that Solomon’s violent behaviour stems from a delusional disorder.The prosecution was contending that on March 2, Solomon and London had an argument and he left their home. When he returned sometime later, he armed himself with a knife and dealt the woman several stabs about her body.The injured woman was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where she was admitted as a patient.The victim had received injuries to her hands and face. A report was made to the police and Solomon was arrested and charged.Only on Monday another woman, who was injured at the hand of her reputed husband, also refused to offer evidence against him. Swaswattie Etwaru, 33, who was severely beaten by her 24-year-old husband last week, which resulted in her being hospitalised, told this publication that she has refused to press charges against her husband.Just recently, Acting (ag) Police Commissioner, Nigel Hoppie noted that statistics revealed that there were 2080 reports of domestic violence made in 2017 to the Guyana Police Force (GPF) and as a result of those reports, there were 1171 cases made by law enforcement authorities.For the year 2018, there were 1491 reports, which led to 837 cases made by the police.“We are all aware that domestic violence continues to be a serious social threat and it is everybody’s business because it does not only affect victims at their homes, it affects individuals at the workplace, and it affects every other family, it can also affect us at schools. Turning a blind eye to these occurrences can further threaten among other things, our culture…we can still hear insistent clammer by family members of victims for legal intervention,” Hoppie stated.last_img read more

first_imgReigning Guyana Open Golf Champion Avinash Persaud once again convincingly demonstrated his skill when he emerged first in the Championship Flight of the Scotiabank Annual Golf Tourney on Saturday, September 22.Scotiabank Manager Nafeeza Gafoor shares a pic with A Flight winner Avinash PersaudAs Scotiabank celebrates its 50th anniversary in Guyana this year (the first branch was opened in 1968), it is hosting its 21st annual tournament at the Lusignan Golf Club (LGC). This grand tournament is one of the highlights at the LGC every year!In the A or Championship Flight, the top two were Persaud (69/2) and Kassim Khan (70/8). But the threat from LGC President Aleem Hussain (72/9), with Kevin Dinanauth (73/3), and Munaf Arjune (74/8), indicating that Persaud will have his work cut out come early November.In the B Flight, the winners were: first – Fazil Haniff (69/15) and second – Roy Cummings (70/13). However, positive challenges were offered from Joaan Deo (71/16); Patrick Prashad (73/10); Hilbert Shields (73/16); and Kalyan Tiwari (74/14).In the C Flight, winners were: Clifford Reis (73/26) and Guillermo Escarraga (76/21). The others in the Flight were outpaced and the nearest contenders were bunched in the 80s with Robert Hanoman (80/28); Maurice Solomon (81/23); Mark Lashley (82/24); Videsh Persaud (85/29) and Rohan Albert (86/24).Prizes were also awarded for the Nearest to The Pin, the Best Gross or Gross Champion, and the Best Net or overall Net Champion. Haniff won the Nearest to The Pin prize. Persaud was the clear winner of the Best Gross with a total of 71.  For the overall Best Net, ties between Persaud and Haniff had to be resolved down to the last three holes each played. (If two players tie on their play after 18 holes, then the better score of the last nine holes determines the winner; if they are still tied, then the better score of the last six holes determine the winner; and if they are still tied, then the better score of the last three holes determines the winner.Days prior to the tournament, in announcing his support for the event, Scotiabank Country Manager Raymond Smith had indicated that during this 50th anniversary year Scotiabank planned to introduce the next generation of ABMs called IBMs or Intelligent Banking Machines, as well as introduce additional online solutions that would enhance customers’ ability to transfer funds to third parties from the convenience of their laptop, tablet or smartphone.Clifford Reis accepts his spoils from Nafeeza GafoorAt the prize-giving ceremony after the tournament, Scotiabank Robb St Branch Manager Nafeeza Gafoor noted that she was so pleased about the tournament and the ambience that she could see herself soon becoming one of the new members of the Golf Club! The Bank will continue to support the LGC as it continues its quest for excellence in the years ahead, she added.As usual now, with the hype building up for the International Guyana Open of November 4 and 5, 2018, and with many golfers aiming to dethrone Persaud, (now reigning for four years), the competition was keen with many golfers putting their best effort into honing their skills. Net scores in the three Flights have been getting consistently good as evidenced from this tournament.A very encouraging, exciting and fantastic feature of the day’s activities was the launching of the Putting Contest, in which members of the public are given an opportunity to make a putt, which would be rewarded with a ticket granting certain privileges for the Guyana Open 2018.last_img read more

SAN DIEGO – Dozens of people accused of working for a Mexican drug cartel were arrested Wednesday in a multistate bust that has netted more than $45 million in cash and tons of cocaine, heroin and marijuana, federal officials said. The suspected leader of the cartel, Victor Emilio Cazares Gastellum, was indicted in San Diego federal court on multiple drug and money laundering charges. He remains in Mexico and has not been arrested, said Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. Cazares Gastellum, who is from Mexico’s Sinaloa state, is not widely known, but U.S. authorities said he is a rival of the Tijuana-based Arellano Felix cartel, which rose to power in the 1980s and has fallen on hard times recently. He is an ally of two better-known Mexican traffickers – Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman and Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada. “Today’s operation is a serious blow to one of the largest and most significant trafficking organizations,” Gonzales said at a news conference. last_img read more

first_img“The investments by both Eskom and Exxaro will have a significant benefit to the local, provincial and ultimately the South African economy,” Eskom CEO Jacob Maroga said in a statement this week. 22 September 2008 Medupi is the first of Eskom’s new generation base-load coal-fired power stations, and will comprise six 800MW generation units capable of supplying a total of 4 800MW of generation capacity to the national grid. The coal for Medupi will be supplied through a brownfields expansion of Exxaro’s Grootegeluk mine – situated near Lephalale – with mining from the existing opencast pit continuing at an accelerated rate. Over the next 40 years, the mine will supply an average of 14.6 tons of power station-grade coal to Medupi per year. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material The coal beneficiation process will be handled via two new dense medium facilities, the Grootegeluk 7 and Grootegeluk 8 beneficiation plants, which will be constructed at the mine. South African state-owned electricity company Eskom and diversified mining group Exxaro Resources have signed a coal supply agreement for Eskom’s Medupi base-load power station, currently being built in Lephalale in Limpopo province. “We value the co-operative and long-standing relationship that has developed between Eskom and Exxaro and are pleased to be able to continue this mutually beneficial relationship,” said Exarro Resources CEO Sipho Nkosi. “We estimate that about 550 permanent jobs will be created at the Grootegeluk mine.” SAinfo reporter It will be the largest air-cooled power station in South Africa. Its first generation unit is scheduled for commercial operation during the last quarter of 2011, with the last unit expected to be in operation in the first half of 2014. “Direct jobs created during construction by both investments will peak at about 9 500 with the Eskom investment generating 8 000 and the Exxaro investment generating 1 500 of these jobs.” Exxaro’s capital expenditure for the project is estimated at R9-billion, and production is planned to begin in the third quarter of 2009, with a ramp-up to full production capacity by 2014.last_img read more

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Related Posts Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit dana oshirocenter_img Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Microsoft researcher danah boyd took a decidedly different approach when considering social networking at today’s LeWeb conference. In speaking to a room packed with more than a thousand entrepreneurs, investors and journalists, boyd explained how we tend to focus on the positive aspects of social networking services. Technologists tend to praise web publishing for its ability to encourage artistic expression and public dialogue. In contrast, boyd makes the point that negative and disturbing web content can also serve as a vehicle for change. boyd explains how those who monitor online profile information, tend to have something to gain from it in a negative way. For example, oppressive governments often monitor the web for signs of criminal activity in order to enforce laws or suppress certain activities. Nevertheless, boyd believes the visibility of violence, drug use and criminal activity can also be used by regular netizens for constructive purposes. She references “eyes on the street” — a concept coined by urban sociologist Jane Jacobs in her book The Death and Life of Great American Cities. Writes Jacobs:“There must be eyes on the street, eyes belonging to those we might call the natural proprietors of the street. The buildings on a street equipped to handle strangers and to insure the safety of both residents and strangers, must be oriented to the street. They cannot turn their backs or blank sides on it and leave it blind. The sidewalk must have users on it fairly continuously, both to add to the number of effective eyes on the street and to induce a sufficient number of people in buildings along the street to watch the sidewalks.”boyd believes this same concept can be applied to online safety and health. She explains, “The web makes available all parts of society and it’s up to us to find a way to make it constructive.” With Facebook’s user base often cited as being bigger than the population of all but 4 countries in the world, netizens have the visibility to do more than simply consume content. boyd’s presentation reveals that while the Internet has the power to uncover the abuse and oppression that is happening around us, ultimately it’s up to us to decide whether or not to acknowledge and help remedy them.

first_imgTags:#enterprise#Trends Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Related Posts 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo…center_img As we’ve said before, consolidation is a watch-word for 2011. Every week we’re seeing acquisitions in the cloud, data analysis and enterprise social software market. We’ve already covered one of this week’s biggest announcements: RIM’s acquisition of Gist. Here are three more acquisitions worth taking note of.HP Acquires VerticaThis is likely the biggest acquisition of the week. HP announced it would purchase enterprise data warehousing vendor Vertica Monday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Last month HP killed off its previous data warehousing product line Neoview, though it had been neglecting it for some time. Some observers wrote that HP had given up on the business intelligence market. As Forrester‘s James Kobielus writes, HP is actually ramping up its enterprise data management offerings with this acquisition. DDMS2 suggests that HP should also purchase StreamBase and VoltDB and fold VoltDB into Vertica. Vertica is a columnar database, a system that some observers believe to be the future of datawarehousing. On the other hand, there are also new approaches to data warehousing such as those detailed by Colin White. We covered the significance of data warehousing consolidation last year when IBM acquired Netezza. OpenText Completes Acquisition of MetastormToday enterprise CMS vendor OpenText completed its acquisition of business process management vendor Metastorm. When the deal was first announced earlier this month, David Roe at CMS Wire speculated that OpenText will use this acquisition to incorporate Metastorm’s BPM software into its own software. OpenText’s announcement confirms that it will be using the Metastorm to deepen its own integration with Microsoft SharePoint.We’ve covered OpenText’s expansion into social software previously. Constant Contact and Bantam LiveLike the Gist acquisition and Salesforce.com’s acquisition of Etacts, Constant Contact‘s $15 million acquisition of Bantam Live shows how the social CRM space is heating up, starting with contact management. Constant Contact is a popular e-mail marketing and contact management system. Bantam is a contact management and social CRM vendor.With the social CRM marketplace crowding quickly, it’s no surprise to see established vendors purchasing younger social CRM vendors like Bantam Live and Gist.A story from Mass High Tech emphasizes the talent acquisition involved in the deal. Bantam Live CTO Henry Poydar will now be the director of engineering at Constant Contact. Constant Contact is also planning a big move to NoSQL. It’s been using Apache Cassandra for a while, but will be replacing more of its existing DB2 servers with Cassandra.Photo by Kioan IT + Project Management: A Love Affair klint finleylast_img read more

In January, two more leaders of the party — Central Committee member Sarmistha Chowdhury and State secretary Pradeep Singh Thakur — were arrested by the CID. Mr. Ramachandran was also picked up by the State police in January after he arrived at the Kolkata railway station.
