Indonesians, security guard robbed in Barama Compound

first_imgTwo Indonesians and two security guards are now counting their losses after they were on Saturday night attacked and robbed of their valuables in the Barama Compound, Land of Canaan, East Bank Demerara (EBD).According to reports, the robbery occurred around 23:45h when five armed men pounced on the security guard of the company and invaded the yard.Guyana Times understands that the men attacked the guard and relieved him of his shotgun along with five cartridges.The perpetrators then took possession of the man’s cellphone, duct-taped his mouth and bound his hands and feet.They then proceeded to the living quarters of the Indonesians, who are reportedly the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Supervisor of the company, forced their way in via the doors and relieved them, along with a female who is the fiancée of the CEO, of their valuables before escaping.Investigators have since processed the scene, obtained statements and are making stringent efforts to apprehend the suspects.last_img read more

Michael Olunga was in line to start, but pulled out of the team entirely after the warm up after aggravating a knock he picked up on Saturday and was replaced by Zesco United’s Jesse Were.Abadihno Mhango of Malawi against Kenya’s Atudo Jockins.

Pace and creativity lacked with none of the two sides bearing urgency to score.Malawi had the game’s first chance after 10 minutes, Gerald Phiri’s curling left foot freekick from range going wide with keeper Patrick Matasi un-troubled.Malawi’s Abadihni Mhango against Harambee Stars Ismail Gonzalez.

Some good team movement anchored by Ismail Gonzalez saw the midfielder pull the ball wide for Aboud Omar, but the left back’s attempt at goal with a shot from the left went over.Almost immediately, Eric Johanna had an ambitious effort trying to catch keeper Brighton Munthali off his line, but the effort went wide with the handful fans who had attended clapping in appreciation.Malawi came close in the 24th minute when Mhango Gabadinho beat Atudo with the ball, the youngster running into the edge of the area but his shot deflected off target for a corner that wasn’t put into good use.Matasi was called into action on the half hour mark making a brilliant save at his near post after Richard Mbulu connected in a cross from John Banda who had raced well away on the right after playing a quick one-two with Alfred Manyoro.Harambee Stars attacking midfielder Ovella Ochieng in action.

Stars solidified their base in defense and guarded the lone goal advantage.Five minutes to time, Joash Onyango made a superb low tackle to deny Gabadinho who was going in one on one with Matasi inside the box. This is just a minute after on the other end, his header off an Abdallah corner went inches over.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Alito ascends

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The swift confirmation of Samuel A. Alito Jr. to be the 110th Supreme Court justice Tuesday was all but inevitable. Although many senators had concerns about his conservatism, particularly in regard to the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling, there was little reason for a derailment of his confirmation. Furthermore, Alito showed thoughtfulness, civility and intelligence during the hearings. Being a conservative nominated by a conservative just isn’t grounds for a filibuster. Still, Alito’s ascension to the tribunal followed one of the most narrow votes in modern history – 58-42 , with all but four Democrats voting against him. The voting signifies a deep and fundamental concern in the country about the serious conservative shift of the court. Alito replaced retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor who widely was seen as the court’s swing vote, the moderate who added balance to the conservative and liberal elements. last_img read more

first_imgIT’S often our musicians who are best selling Co Donegal abroad.And this week it is Altan which are making headlines in the United States – and helping to make the Poison Glen famous!The Gaoth Dobhair group are already booked in to Disneyland Paris for St Patrick’s Day. But as the continue their mini-tour of the States, the Boston Globe has carried a feature on them – including an interview with lead singer and fiddler Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh.The band play the Somerville Theatre in the city tonight.“I can’t start boasting about ourselves,’’ Mairéad told The Globe, “but I know that we’re very honest about what we do, and we always try to stick to what we know best, our own music from Donegal. There’s still a demand for the music, I suppose. That would be the one thing. We get on well as a band; I suppose that’s another reason. And we’ve been very lucky. I suppose that’s the biggest reason of all.’’The Boston Globe wanted to know why their new album was called Gleann Nimhe – The Poison Glen “Gleann Nimhe means ‘Poison Glen,’ ’’ she told them, “but it can also be interpreted as ‘Paradise Glen,’ or ‘Heavenly Glen.’ So there’s two interpretations. I’d say the second one is more likely. But we decided to go with ‘Poison Glen’ because it has a bit of an edge about it.’’“It’s a glen very near my home in Donegal,’’ she continued. “It’s a beautiful place. We went there to take photographs for the album cover, and it just stuck to the album, there was something about it, so we decided to keep that title, and it’s leading to a lot of debate.’’“Gleann Nimhe’’ doesn’t come with a lyric sheet, but Ní Mhaonaigh says that the words to all the songs are posted on the band’s website. She adds, “I’m hoping as I’m going along on the tour now to actually translate the Gaelic lyrics for everyone.’’The singer also spoke of her love of the Irish language and her native Gaoth Dobhair.“It’s (Irish) important to us, to our identity, especially to me, it’s a dying language, and I do everything to promote it.’’ She’s even moved from Dublin back to Gaoth Dobhair. “I had a child [daughter Nia] about eight years ago. And I decided to go back home in order bring her up with the Gaelic language, and with the music around her, and with my family talking around her as well.’’The band are Ciarán Tourish on fiddle, and Dermot Byrne on the accordion, and Dáithí Sproule on guitar, and Ciarán Curran on bouzouki, and Mairead on fiddle and vocalist.LEAVE YOUR COMMENT BELOW© 2012, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on us on HELP MAKE POISON GLEN WORLD FAMOUS was last modified: March 9th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:ALTAN HELP MAKE POISON GLEN WORLD FAMOUSbostondonegaldonegaldaily.comGaoth Dobhairlast_img read more


first_imgFianna Fáil is urging residents and businesses across Letterkenny to make their voices heard at a meeting opposing the abolition of Letterkenny Town Council.Cllr Ciaran BroganThe cross-party meeting, arranged by public representatives from all sides, takes place at Public Service Centre in Letterkenny at 7pm on Tuesday, 05 November.Fianna Fáil Leader on Donegal County Council Ciarán Brogan said the loss of Letterkenny town council would be a major blow to Donegal. “Letterkenny is a role model town council. It has taken the lead in developing Letterkenny and making the town a more attractive place to live in and to work in, and a more attractive place for investors,” said Cllr Brogan.“Letterkenny was one of the first town councils in the country to hire a litter warden and to have its own town gardener. It has an excellent working relationship with Donegal County Council, resulting in significant investment in local amenities, such as Bernard McGlinchy park, Ballymacool park, Ballyboe park and Aura Leisure Centre. It works closely with sporting organisations and the community, operating 90 residents’ associations,” explained Cllr Brogan.“The town structure has served this community well and there is no doubt that Letterkenny would not be where it is if it wasn’t for the council working on behalf of the community. But now the Government now wants to bulldoze through this. It wants to abolish the system where local decisions are made by local people.“This Tuesday, Letterkenny has an opportunity to speak with one voice and demand that our town council is retained. We need to strengthen democracy in Donegal, not weaken it. We need greater community input into the decisions that are made on our behalf. Letterkenny is the only cross-border gateway in the country and it needs the strong leadership that the council provides. “The Environment Minister Phil Hogan, who is leading the charge on abolishing town councils, is in Donegal on Thursday and Friday of next week. So far he has refused the council’s request to meet him about this extremely retrograde step. I am appealing to the Minister to facilitate a meeting with a cross-party delegation from Letterkenny Town Council while he is here. The very least he could do is hear them out.”FIANNA FAIL URGE PUBLIC TO ATTEND MEETING TO SAVE LETTERKENNY TOWN COUNCIL was last modified: November 1st, 2013 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:Cllr Ciaran BroganLetterkenny Town Councillast_img read more
