Teen miner stabbed to death by employer

first_imgAnother teen miner is now dead after being allegedly murdered by a close relative who was also his employer.Nineteen-year-old Dave Boyal, a miner of Batavia, Cuyuni River, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) was killed on Friday. Reports are the incident occurred at about 22:00h in the vicinity of Blackwater Island Backdam, Cuyuni River.Reports are that Boyal and other miners were in their hammocks when the alleged perpetrator entered the mining camp. He appeared intoxicated and commenced cutting down the hammocks that the miners (including Boyal) had tied.According to the police, Boyal tried to persuade his relative to desist from doing so, and it was during this intervention that the suspect picked up an arrow and fatally stabbed the teenager in the abdomen.The 30-year-old suspect, who also hailed from Batavia Island, Cuyuni River, was subsequently arrested and is currently in Police custody.Boyal’s body is at Bartica Hospital’s mortuary awaiting a post-mortem.Just last month, alcohol and quick tempers proved to be a deadly mix when another 19-year-old miner was stabbed to death by his associate in a camp at Frenchman, located a few miles from Mabura.The dead teen, Alex Daniels, was said to be consuming alcohol with his killer when an argument broke out. Persons around intervened but when the duo returned to their camp, the argument escalated and the perpetrator used a knife to stab Daniels in the region of his heart.In December 2018, another miner lost his life after being allegedly stabbed to death by a Brazilian national whom he was arguing with over bar-b-que sausages.The suspect, a chef, was said to be engaged in a heated argument with the now dead man over the frying of sausages, which led to the chef allegedly stabbing the man to his chest.In October last, a gold miner allegedly stabbed a 20-year-old to death as they argued over cigarettes in the Potaro mining community.last_img read more

Jaguars’ balanced team produce massive victory

first_imgMáximo’s masterplan…By Jemima HolmesSince the beginning of his tenure as Head Coach of the Guyana senior men’s national football team, the Golden Jaguars, Márcio Máximo has taken every opportunity to emphasise the importance of having a balanced national team in order to continuously develop local football.A glimpse of the Nations League action on Monday nightSince the beginning of Guyana’s CONCACAF Nations League campaign, Máximo’s mantra has been the inclusion of more local players, which will in turn improve the level of football that is being played in Guyana. As such, the Coach has balanced his 20-member teams, utilising an even number of local and international players.At first, Guyana got past Aruba easily in a 1-0 affair; however, when they met Jamaica and Antigua and Barbuda, the Golden Jaguars suffered 4-0 and 2-1 defeats respectively. As a result of this, many questions were asked about when the Head Coach’s master plan would come to fruition.Golden Jaguars’ Head CoachMarcio MaximoGuyana sought their revenge against Antigua and Barbuda on Monday evening and for the first time, many got to witness what Coach Máximo has been envisioning for months – a winning balance.Following the exhilarating 90 minutes, Coach Máximo was ecstatic about the victory, highlighting that his objective to balance the team with local and international players has paid off.“Like I told before, you should invest in the mix of the international players and the local players; I think it is a very good combination: the team is one unit. They know about responsibilities and objectives and how much goals you should get and I’m very happy, because the guys prove that we have a good team. We just need time and patience to improve this team,” he stated.The Coach went on to reveal his intentions to continue working with this formula, as he believes it will lead to a brighter football fraternity in Guyana.“You don’t really have development without giving chances for local players too. This combination for me is a secret for Guyana to have a better team and a good squad. We just started in our job, but if we continue in this way, greater things are coming for Guyana,” he declared.How it went downAfter their away game against the same opponents failed to go as planned, the Golden Jaguars used their home advantage to punish the “Benna Boys’ from Antigua and Barbuda on Monday evening.The local boys were on show at the Leonora Track and Field Facility, trouncing Antigua and Barbuda 5-1 in their fourth CONCACAF Nations League game.After being out of the national side for some months, Trayon Bobb was included in the team for their back-to-back clashes with Antigua and Barbuda over the weekend. While he failed to produce in the first encounter, Bobb decided that the result would not be the same at home.With family and friends cheering him on, Bobb opened the scoring early when he beat the goalkeeper in the first minute of play.Once again, the quick forward was able to play past Antigua’s goalie Murphy Parker in the 28th minute for Guyana’s second goal.The remainder of the half went quietly as Antigua worked overtime on their defence.Guyana’s goalkeeper Akel Clarke’s lone mistake came in the 47th as Nathaniel Jarvis outfoxed him for Antigua’s consolation goal.While Antigua eagerly tried to level the score, the Golden Jaguars had other plans. Coming in for Kelsey Benjamin in the second half was another local talent, Sheldon Holder, who had an immediate impact on the game. With a kick coming from the left corner, Holder gently headed it into the goal for Guyana’s third in the 64th.Kadell Daniel added another to the tally in the 77th minute when the collection of his free kick was fumbled by Antigua’s goalkeeper. Sheldon Holder could not be kept out of the game; as the forward was going for his second goal, he instead decided to back heel it to an attentive Pernell Shultz, who completed the goal with ease for Guyana’s fifth in the 90+2.Bobb’s brillianceAfter the celebrations, Bobb noted that he was proud of himself and the team for sticking to their game plan and emerging with a win.“It’s a very wonderful feeling, helping Guyana with two goals. And also playing very hard, each and every one of us were hungry even from the start. And that’s the plan we had, to come out and play hard and come out victorious and we did that,” Bobb said.Furthermore, when asked about his thoughts in relation to being recalled to the national outfit and succeeding, Bobb noted that it was motivating, especially going forward in his career.“I feel very motivated. I always like working hard and trying to be better at all times,” he stated.Guyana will play their next Nations League match against Aruba on November 14, 2019.last_img read more

Forces sweep Shiite militia areas

first_imgIRAQ: In pre-dawn raid, troops capture 30 suspected fighters linked to Muqtada al-Sadr. By Steven R. Hurst THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BAGHDAD – U.S. and Iraqi forces, backed by Polish army helicopters, swept through Shiite militia strongholds south of Baghdad on Saturday, rounding up dozens of militants and killing two. The prime minister met the provincial governor, who called for reinforcements to root out “the criminals.” Coalition forces reported no casualties but said two militants were killed in the sweep.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Iraqi police said 30 suspected fighters linked to Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr’s Mahdi Army were grabbed in a pre-dawn house-to-house search by U.S. and Iraqi raiders in two eastern neighborhoods in Diwaniyah, 80 miles south of Baghdad. Rival Shiite militias are engaged in grabs for power in the oil-rich south of the country, as British forces are drawing down. But U.S. commanders have reported significant inroads against both Shiite militias and al-Qaida in Iraq fighters across the fertile agriculture belt nearer to the capital. They credit local residents, emboldened against the terror tactics of both al-Qaida and Shiite militants, with much of the success. The residents have bought into a trend that started in Iraq’s western Anbar province, where Sunni tribesmen rose up against al-Qaida and have methodically hunted them down in conjunction with U.S. forces. South of the capital, Shiite militiamen are facing the same onslaught in communities where they have terrorized co-religionists. On Diwaniyah’s east side, U.S.-led ground forces backed by two Polish army helicopters came under fire from machine guns and an anti-tank grenade launcher, the military said. last_img read more

Click the right arrow above to find out.There are a few surprises in there because, as we all know, statistics alone don’t tell the full story. 11 Centre-back: Ricardo Carvalho (Chelsea) – The Portuguese defender helped keep a clean sheet in 46.7% of his Premier League appearances for the Blues. 11 Goalkeeper: Petr Cech (Chelsea and Arsenal) – Click the right arrow above to see who else makes the greatest Premier League XI based on statistics… – According to statistics, the brilliant Czech goalkeeper has conceded a goal every 116.1 minutes in the Premier League during his career.

He scores once every 109.8 minutes, which is almost a strike every game. 11 Left-wing: Nani (Manchester United) – He might not have been a fan favourite for the Red Devils but according to the statistics, he consistently produced, managing an assist every 225.9 minutes in the Premier League.

Right-back: Alvaro Arbeloa (Liverpool and West Ham) – In our list of defenders with the best clean sheet record, in 43.5% of the games Arbeloa played, his team didn’t concede a goal – the joint-best record of any full-back who’s played more than 30 games in the Premier League.

Flipping’ heck…why all these shoes have been washing up in Donegal

first_imgRunners and flip flops have been washing up along Donegal beaches for the past month after containers spilt off a Maersk Shanghai ship near North Carolina last year.FlipBeaches at other parts of the country including Valentia, Fanore and Connemara have also reported coming across the footwear.And they have also reached Cornwall in the UK, Brest and Brittany in France, the Azores, parts of Spain and Jersey. Liam MacNamara of Burren Shores Beachcombing and More told the Irish Times the companies responsible, Great Wolf Lodge and Just Speed have been contacted.“I have a contact in Florida who took up the case for me and he made contact with the companies . . . Just Speed and Great Wolf Lodge have confirmed that they had a shipment on that boat.”Nike have also been contacted regarding the lost containers but said “they weren’t aware of any containers that were missing”.Mr MacNamara is concerned at the potential environmental impact of plastic footwear in the oceans having seen bite marks on several pairs in Fanore. Nike have also been contacted regarding the lost shipments but said “they weren’t aware of any containers that were missing”.“Most of the soles themselves are made from plastic. The material side of it wouldn’t be overly harmful because that would break down, but the plastic of course never breaks down. And it just gets smaller and smaller, eventually it could end up in fish.”The clean-up now falls upon volunteers. In 2015, ink cartridges belonging to Hewlett Packard washed up on beaches and the American multinational company later made a donation to environmental groups as an apology.Flipping’ heck…why all these shoes have been washing up in Donegal was last modified: May 2nd, 2019 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)last_img read more
