Deported convict arrested for WBD robbery


first_imgA Guyanese involuntary returnee who served a conviction in the United States, was arrested by police on Sunday in relation to an armed robbery committed on two Bangladeshi nationals, after police tracked a stolen cell phone to this East La Penitence, Georgetown, home.According to police reports, about 20:45h on Saturday, the two Bangladeshis were about to enter their Barclay Street, Goed Fortuin, West Bank Demerara, home when two males, both armed with handguns, confronted them.The gunmen relieved them of their belongings, which included two phones (a Samsung and IPhone) and $185,000 cash. The perpetrators then got into a waiting car, which was parked a short distance away.During the investigations, the police found that the IPhone had a tracking device, which led investigators to the home of the suspect, where the stolen IPhone was found.The 55-year-old ‘deportee’ was arrested and taken into custody. His white Toyota Primo car, which investigators suspected was used during the robbery, was also impounded.The police said that the arrested man had served a lengthy prison term in the US for manslaughter and drug trafficking offences.Meanwhile, further investigations into the armed robbery are ongoing.last_img read more


Fire guts section of UG’s Health Sciences building


first_imgSeveral morning classes at the University of Guyana (UG) were disrupted on Wednesday after a fire broke out in the Faculty of Health Sciences, damaging a section of the recently renovated building.Health Sciences Dean Emanuel Cummings updating the displaced studentsThe destroyed stair tower at the Health Science Faculty following Wednesday’s blazeThe fire raging at UG’s Faculty of Health Sciences on Wednesday morningThe fire started sometime around 10:00h and according to information reaching Guyana Times, it was caused after a generator exploded. A subsequent release from the University revealed that the generator belonged to telecommunications company, Digicel.“The fire is reported to have originated at the Digicel-owned generator located on the southern side of the recently refurbished Faculty of Health Sciences building on the Turkeyen campus,” the UG statement said.According to the University, the fire affected only the back stairwell of the building and caused some water and smoke damage in the vicinity. Luckily, however, there were no reports of injuries to neither students nor faculty staff.This newspaper was told that a student in one of the classes raised the alarm after she looked out the window and saw the fire, resulting in immediate evacuation of the building. At the time, examinations, which were ongoing, had to be abandoned.The faculty staffers as well as a few students were seen removing equipment, including computers and important documents from various classrooms in the building. Meanwhile, other students from the Health Sciences Faculty, along with others gathered on the lawns watching on as thick dark smoke emanated from the roof of the building.Moments later, the fire tenders arrived on the scene and rushed into action, dousing the blaze and containing it within minutes. Dean of the Health Sciences Faculty, Dr Emanuel Cummings speaking with this publication, commended the Guyana Fire Service for its efficiency and effectiveness.“I must complement the fire service for their quick response that they were able to mobilise the fire in one particular area and save the building, even though we’ve lost a stairway and parts of that section,” Cummings noted.The Dean noted that as customary, the Fire Service together with the University’s maintenance department will further probe the fire. He further described the incident as a major but minor one – major in that a section of the building was destroyed but minor because it would affect classes.Meanwhile, classes for students of the Health Sciences Faculty were suspended for the remainder of Wednesday and arrangements going forward will be indicated.The Health Sciences building was recently renovated. Last August, a small fire erupted on some wiring in the same building. However, faculty staffers used extinguishers to put out the blaze.Guyana Times was told on Wednesday by several students that the building has faulty wiring. Moreover, the students called for better fire prevention and safety measures to be put in place.“This classroom was renovated just last year and so we are hoping fire safety, precaution measures and other safety measures are put in place to prevent this from reoccurring,” one student said.Nevertheless, according to Vice Chancellor Ivelaw Lloyd Griffith, who is travelling on official business, said he received a call from the CEO of Digicel Guyana, Kevin Kelly, who apologised for the damage and the inconvenience caused to the University community by the fire.The Vice Chancellor further lauded the professionalism of the Guyana Fire Service and is grateful that there were no injuries. He also thanked UG’s Security and Estates Management teams, and members of his Cabinet for their swift and effective action, and looks forward to having Digicel repair all damages quickly.On the other hand, Deputy Vice Chancellor Michael Scott, who is the Officer-in-Charge of the University in the absence of the Vice Chancellor, said that “the University stands committed to ensuring the safety and security of students and staff and following the advice of Fire Prevention Officer of the Guyana Fire Service, Mr Andrew Holder, the university would undertake a fire audit of all its facilities.”last_img read more


Rooney backed to make MLS switch


first_imgThe 32-year-old has netted 11 times for Everton since returning to his boyhood club last summer, but Sunday’s trip to West Ham could potentially be his last Premier League outing.Rooney would join DC United when the US transfer window opens in July, and Neville insists it would be a beneficial move for the former England captain.“I thought it was nice that he went back to Everton, but it never quite works when you go back,” Neville told Sky Sports.“My view is that to experience something completely different would be a great thing for him – to get away and try something different.“He’s got 30-35 years of his life to think about, coming pretty quickly. To experience different things, different culture, different environment, and to learn about new things is not a bad thing for him.“He’s got a big decision to make in the next couple of years about what he does in his post-career.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Widespread reports in the UK have indicated that Rooney is in advanced talks with US outfit DC United over a proposed £12million switch this summer.LONDON, United Kingdom, May 11 – Wayne Rooney would reap the rewards from making a Stateside switch to MLS, believes former England and Manchester United team-mate Gary Neville.Widespread reports in the UK have indicated that Rooney is in advanced talks with US outfit DC United over a proposed Sh11.2bn (£12million) switch this summer.last_img read more


MAN CLAIMS FISHERIES OFFICER TOLD HIM HE WOULD DROWN HIM LIKE HIS DEAD BROTHER


first_imgFisheries officers told a man they would drown him like his dead brother, a court was told.Mark Colhoun at court yesterday.Mark Colhoun appeared at court in Letterkenny yesterday charged with assaulting a fisheries officer. Mr Colhoun, 29, has also taken a case of assault against the fisheries officer at Green Brae along the River Foyle between Donegal and Derry in April of last year.Mr Colhoun lost his brother on the same stretch of water in May, 2011.The remains of tragic David Colhoun, 22, were not found until ten months later in February 2012 after a massive search.Mark Colhoun’s solicitor Frank Dorrian made the claim against the Loughs Agency officer at Letterkenny District Court yesterday.Mr Dorrian said it was his client who was assaulted by fisheries officers when they came across him as he was exercising his dog on April 30th last.The solicitor put it to fisheries officer Jason McCartney that officer Donal Lynch, who is charged with assault, called Mr Colhoun, of Beechwood Grove, Lifford, a scumbag before threatening him.“He said ‘I will drown you like your brother. You know he lost his brother in the River Foyle?,” asked Mr Dorrian.However officer McCartney said no such threat was made.In fact, Mr McCartney said it was Colhoun who started the row.He said he came over to fisheries officer Lynch, of Carrickmore St Johnston, and started throwing his fists at him.Mr McCartney said “I repeatedly tried to clam Mr Colhoun down as he was in an agitated state. I kept telling him I didn’t want any trouble today and let’s not do this.“He completely ignored my attempts and his eyes were fixed firmly on Officer Lynch. At this point he reached over and tried to grabbed Officer Lynch. He dragged him down banking by the hood and was repeatedly punching him in the face.”Another man fishing on the river, Edward Hutchman, claimed he saw Mr Colhoun approach officer Lynch first and started striking him.A friend of Mr Colhoun, Michelle Norris, who was exercising his dog with him claimed both men had been involved in the scuffle but that officer Lynch first took off his jacket.Judge Paul Kelly adjourned the case until April 1st next to hear evidence from a number of other witnesses.MAN CLAIMS FISHERIES OFFICER TOLD HIM HE WOULD DROWN HIM LIKE HIS DEAD BROTHER was last modified: January 14th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:David ColhounJudge Paul KellyLiffordLoughs AgencyMark Colhounlast_img read more

Hear Ye! Directional Sound Enabled by Superfast Neurons


first_img(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 How can you tell where sounds come from?  The brain is quicker than the speed of sound between your ears.There’s only about 8 inches between your ears (more, perhaps, for fatheads).  The speed of sound is finite.  The tiny time lag between the arrival at one ear compared to the other is what enables us to sense the source direction of the sound, but there’s more to it than that.  If signals did not get processed in the brain faster than the time lag, the information would not be useful.Science Daily asks, “How Do We Locate the Spatial Position of Sounds? Mechanism Responsible for Creation of Giant Synapses Discovered.”  Sure enough, there are massive hubs or neural intersections in our brains that can process information faster than the speed of sound.  Here’s the upshot (notice the astonishment):Humans and most mammals can determine the spatial origin of sounds with remarkable acuity. We use this ability all the time — crossing the street; locating an invisible ringing cell phone in a cluttered bedroom. To accomplish this small daily miracle, the brain has developed a circuit that’s rapid enough to detect the tiny lag that occurs between the moment the auditory information reaches one of our ears, and the moment it reaches the other. The mastermind of this circuit is the “Calyx of Held,” the largest known synapse in the brain. EPFL scientists have revealed the role that a certain protein plays in initiating the growth of these giant synapses.Because it resembles the calyx of a flower, anatomist H. Held described it as such in 1893.  Regarding it, Wikipedia says, “This structure is specially designed for fast, efficient transportation of information from one cell to the next.”  The part of the brain that processes auditory information has a number of these structures.According to the Science Daily article, studies at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) show the Calyx of Held to act “almost like peer-to-peer communication between neurons.”  These synapses have hundreds of inputs.  “The result is that information is processed extremely quickly, in a few fractions of a millisecond, instead of the slower pace of more than 10 milliseconds that occurs in most other neuronal circuits.”EPFL scientists identified a protein named BMP that is implicated in developing the contact points for the Calyx of Held.  “The impact of this study will go well beyond increasing our understanding of the auditory system,” the article says.  “The results suggest that the BMP protein plays an important role in developing connectivity in the brain.”Medical Xpress begins with an image of the giant synapse.“The brain has developed” this circuit.  Funny; did you ever ask your brain to do that?  There’s another example of pulling off evolutionary magic by misdirection.In his excellent book, The Wonder of Man (1999), Dr. Werner Gitt provided numerous amazing details about our senses.  The ear, “our highest precision sense organ,” is able to detect energy ratios of one million million to one, an “astonishing feat” that approaches auditory perfection.  Since each ear provides two sound paths, we actually get four inputs for localizing sound sources.  Considering the path lengths and the speed of sound, the brain must be able to process inputs arriving as close as 0.00003 seconds apart.  “In acoustic orientation terms this means that a sound source located only about 3° from the centre line of the head is recognized as being off-centre,” he said.  The slight difference in sound intensity between the two ears also gives us information on the distance to the sound.Dr. Gitt’s book, though 14 years old, is highly recommended if you can find it.  It’s well illustrated and extremely interesting.  Not only does he provide a wealth of information about the senses and other body organs, he gives the glory not just to an unspecified designer, but to the Lord Jesus Christ.  [Note: None of the secular sources in this entry dared mention their idol, Charlie.]  The power of the Christian explanation for the wonders of creation is in the details that this book so beautifully presents.last_img read more
