Footballer gunned down in Albouystown for gold chain

first_imgA footballer attached to the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) was on Thursday morning gunned down moments after taking his fiancée to her Independence Boulevard, Albouystown home.Thirty-nine-year-old Paul Anthony Daniels, of Schoonord, West Bank Demerara,Dead: Paul Anthony Danielswas shot once to his chest during an alleged robbery about 06:00h.The man reportedly went to drop home his fiancée and had decided to watch some television before departing the home where the incident occurred. Based on reports received, two armed men entered the home through a door located on the northern side of the building, which was left open.Upon entering the house, they held Daniels and his fiancée at gunpoint and relieved him of a gold chain which he was wearing at the time and an undisclosed sum of cash, after which the men exited the house. Daniels, who was also a construction worker, went in pursuit of the men and during the chase, the suspects discharged several rounds, one of which hit Daniels, in the region of his stomach.He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. When Guyana Times visited the scene on Thursday morning, there were several bullet holes in the zinc gate and bloodstains on the ground.Several persons had gathered while the man’s fiancée was reportedly at the Brickdam Police Station providing further statements. Staymon Ross, a neighbour, recalled hearing gunshots and immediately running towards the front. He noted that by the time he reached the front of the yard where the gunshots were heard, he saw Daniels lying in a pool of blood.Without hesitation, he assisted in placing the injured man into a vehicle and took him to the hospital; however, but by the time they arrived at the medical facility, the injured man took his last breath. He noted that the father of one lived on the West Bank of Demerara, but whenever he was working in Georgetown, he would stay at his fiancée.He explained that Daniels had just arrived at the house when the two gunmen attacked. He could not say what occurred in the house, but was told that the construction worker was robbed of the gold chain he was wearing at the time.“This boy ain’t got no problems with anyone, so it had to be a robbery… he does come and go and people don’t even know when he is around…,” Ross noted.He said that the couple were due to get married soon.Ross is also of the belief that the crime situation has taken a turn for the worse, calling on the Head of State to intervene. Another neighbour told Guyana Times that she was sleeping and was awakened by the sound of bullets followed by loud screams. As she rushed to investigate, she saw Daniels panting for breath.Within seconds, she noted, he took a long breath and at that time, she thought that he was dead. However, he was placed in a vehicle and rushed to the hospital. She too stated that Daniels was never involved in any illegal activities.“He does come and go… both of them work and when she work, he does drop she home… and that is what exactly happened this morning,” she noted.However, some at the scene recalled only a few days ago, two men had visited the area enquiring about Daniels’ whereabouts, leaving them to believe that the shooting might have stemmed from an old grievance.A few also believe that the now dead man might have known his killers since they called out his name as they made their way into the house. After the shooting, the two men escaped on two pedal cycles.The Police have launched an investigation into the incident, but no arrests have been made.last_img read more


first_imgIT may be a day for hitting the beach – but not if you head to Linsfort Beach in Inishowen.There is anger from locals and visitors alike after planning permission was given for a massive oyster farm on a beach enjoyed for generations.The once beautiful beach on the scenic Wild Atlantic Way is being ruined by oyster farming, said a spokesman for Save Linsfort Beach. “A ten year licence has been granted for 42 acres of oyster beds and the beach which is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is being destroyed.“This unspoilt sandy beach has already been turned into an eyesore with lines of unsightly metal cages. The beach is now practically unusable by the local community and public who have for years walked along the shore and enjoyed recreational activities on the beach during the summer months.“As unsightly as the metal cages are at low tide they are also unmarked at high tide when submerged just below the surface and and present a real safety hazard to children, swimmers, kayakers, boats and local wildlife.“Environmental impact studies suggest that the use of non-native species (pacific oysters) for aquaculture purposes is of significant concern. Pacific oysters can overgrow resident species and affect their growth and cause widespread environmental changes that threaten biodiversity and ecosystem services.” More information on a petition and a campaign can be found here ANGER AS MASSIVE OYSTER FARM GETS GO-AHEAD ON TOP DONEGAL BEACH was last modified: June 30th, 2015 by John2Share 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:buncranaLinsfort beachoyster farmlast_img read more

Sourav Ganguly wants to be Indias coach Former skipper makes massive revelation

first_imgGanguly made an interesting statementIANSSourav Ganguly is regarded as one of the greatest, if not the greatest captain India ever had. He has also been working as an administrator with the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB). But now the ‘Prince of Kolkata’ has made a revelation that will surprise many while bringing a cheer to the faces of others. The former left-handed batsman revealed that he wants to coach the Indian team someday.”Definitely, I’m interested but not at this point of time. Let one more phase go then I will throw my name into the fray. Currently, I’m associated with too many things — IPL, CAB, TV commentary.”Let me complete this. But I will definitely put my hat at some stage. Provided I get selected. But definitely, I’m interested. Not now but in the future,” the man known fondly as Dada said. Ganguly, Tendulkar and Laxman were part of the CAC in the pastThis statement comes at a time when the BCCI is in the process of selecting a coach for the Indian team. Sourav Ganguly was also part of a special committee formed in 2016 to select the next Indian coach along with Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman. At that time, he had a fallout with Ravi Shastri as the latter accused the former national captain of being ‘disrespectful’ by not being present when he made his presentation.The same people were again constituted into the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) for selecting a coach when Anil Kumble left the job in 2017 and this time, they did select Shastri as the coach. The ill-feeling between the two men has persisted and occasionally spurts out in form of snide remarks towards each other.This time around, Dada is not expressing his opinion about who should be given that job. “Going by the applicants, I don’t see any heavyweight names. I heard Mahela (Jayawardene) would apply but ultimately he didn’t. Ultimately I don’t know what the panel will decide. They have been around for a while. We will see how long the term the coach will give,” Ganguly added.last_img read more

A piece of Bangladesh in the sea

first_img.Red crabs scuttle across the sandy beach. Thousands of birds soar above the island newly emerged off the Kuakata coast, 40 kilometres from the southeast corner of Gangamoti. It appears to be a ‘little’ Bangladesh within Bangladesh.The new island was discovered by a group of tourists recently. They went to visit the island after hearing about it from fishermen on 5 December.The local fishermen named it ‘Hairer Chor’. ‘Hair’, in local dialect, refers to the boundary determined for the fishermen for fishing.The tourists have named the island ‘Chor Bijoy’ (Island of Victory) as it has been discovered in the month of victory. They hoisted a national flag in the island..The island has been officially named ‘Chor Bijoy’ by the municipal administration of Kuakata. Officials of the local administration, forest department and other organisations visited the island on Wednesday.Tourists Shima Akhter and her husband were among those who visited the island for the first time. She told Prothom Alo, “We have travelled to so many places, but such a beautiful island in the middle of the sea was beyond our imagination. We were overwhelmed. The beauty was out of this world.”According to the fishermen, the island goes under water during the monsoons and reappears in winter. The marginal fishermen go to the island then and set up temporary abode. They stay there for three months to catch fish and dry them.The island stretches is 10 kilometres long and 3 kilometres wide, stretching from the east to west. The length and breadth reduce to 3 kilometres and 1 kilometre respectively during high tide..Fisherman Altaf Hossain said, generally the fishermen from Gangamoti and Kawar Char go to this island. The island first started to appear around four years ago and finally emerged and became visible two years ago. The fishermen then started to go to the island to fish and process dried fish. The tourist group of ‘Kuakata Sea Tourism’ went to the island recently. Kuakata Bangabandhu High School’s head master and the assistant headmaster visited the island along with tourists from Dhaka.”We did not know about such a beautiful island near Kuakata. We only came to know about it from the fishermen and went there. We called this enchanting island ‘Chor Bijoy’ as it has been discovered in the month of victory,” Johnny Alamgir, an official of Kuakata Sea Tourism, told Prothom Alo.*The article originally published in Prothom Alo print edition has been rewritten in English by Farjana Liakat.last_img read more

Researchers build Moon garden

first_imgMurat Kacira at the Controlled Environment Agriculture Center. Image credit: Norma Jean Gargasz/UANews. Developed by Phil Sadler of the Sadler Machine Co. and Gene Giacomelli and other researchers at the University of Arizona, the 18-foot-long greenhouse would be buried underneath the Moon’s surface to avoid deadly cosmic rays and solar flares. Plants can grow without soil in the greenhouse thanks to hydroponic technology, mineral nutrient solutions, and long envelopes that hold the seeds in place as they start growing.The greenhouse is designed so that the plants can get carbon dioxide from the astronauts’ exhaled breaths. Furthermore, even the water for the plants can be extracted from human urine. The astronauts wouldn’t need to go underground to deliver these ingredients to the plants; instead, the carbon dioxide and water would be supplied into the underground greenhouse from a surface lunar base through pressurized tanks. Similarly, sunlight could be supplied to the plants through fiber optic cables. The researchers designed the greenhouse to operate remotely or even autonomously, so that food could be ready when astronauts arrive. The entire system can be collapsed into a four-foot-wide disk, sent to the Moon, and deployed in 10 minutes. With the option of being monitored from Earth by sensors and cameras, it will then take about 30 days for the vegetables to grow.”You can think of this as a robotic mechanism that is providing food, oxygen and fresh drinking water,” Giacomelli said in a press release.Overall, the lunar greenhouse contains approximately 220 pounds of wet plant material that can provide 53 quarts of potable water and 0.75 pounds of oxygen during a 24-hour period, while consuming about 100 kilowatts of electricity and a pound of carbon dioxide. Many of the garden’s features come from the South Pole Growth Chamber here on Earth, which was previously designed by the Sadler Machine Co. The growth chamber has to overcome some of the same challenges for certain months of the year when the circulating ocean currents cut the pole off from the rest of the world. The researchers are also looking at using similar technology for use in urban gardens in heavily populated areas, where fertile soil is scarce.”There’s great interest in providing locally grown, fresh food in cities, for growing food right where masses of people are living,” Giacomelli said. “It’s the idea of growing high-quality fresh food that only has to be transported very short distances. There also would be a sense of agriculture returning to the everyday lives of urban dwellers.” The Moon is not the most hospitable place for growing fruits and vegetables. The lack of atmosphere and natural water, extreme temperatures, and exposure to cosmic rays present some serious challenges for future inhabitants who want to pursue sustainable living on the Moon. With these challenges in mind, scientists have built a lunar greenhouse that is designed to grow plants such as potatoes, peanuts, tomatoes, and peppers under the Moon’s extreme conditions.
