Ravendranauth Narine, also known as “Earo,” of Lot ‘A’ 47 Number 12 Village, West Coast Berbice, died after a swarm of Africanised bees stung him while he was operating heavy-duty machinery in uprooting trees at Bath Settlement, West Coast Berbice.The incident occurred late on Thursday afternoon, and the 51-year-old father of four died while receiving medical attention at the New Amsterdam Hospital on Friday at about 21:00hrs.Dead: Ravendranauth “Earo” NarineOne of the dead man’s co-workers, a teenager named Azim Habid, has said that at the time of the incident they were uprooting trees to clear a way for the construction of a new road when the bees swarmed them. He indicated that after the bees launched their attack he fled the scene, leaving his co-worker behind.He related that it was Narine who first had seen the bees and raised the alarm. Habid, who also received several bee stings, said he sprinted away, leaving Narine in the distance.“When I look back I see bee covering he whole skin,” he said.He recalled running for about 30 minutes to get help, but noted that persons were reluctant to offer assistance. However, he was able to persuade someone to offer assistance after about an hour.Habid related that when they arrived at the scene, Narine’s body was covered with bees, resulting in them utilising an excavator to remove him out of the area.The man’s wife, Roopwattie Narine, told Guyana Times that she received a phone call on Thursday, informing her of the incident. She said relatives rushed to the hospital and began to inquire about the condition of her husband.Roopwattie said that when she got to the hospital, she saw her husband surrounded by doctors and nurses.She added that it was almost impossible to recognize her husband, since his face was swollen almost triple its original size.Marine leaves to mourn his wife and four children. He died on his son’s third birthday.Many beekeepers have indicated that it is the African bees’ swarming season, and they are urging the public to ensure they exercise caution at this time.

You’re all set! SACRAMENTO – Local officials are meeting today in Sacramento at the San Gabriel Valley Legislative Caucus to discuss the effect Gov. Schwarzenegger’s budget revision will have on local transportation projects. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is expecting a loss of $230 million dollars from the budget cuts. Michael Turner, MTA’s government relations manager, will address the Caucus this afternoon on how this may affect the San Gabriel Valley. Assemblyman Ed Hernandez’s chief of staff, Walter Hughes, says he expects funds for the 10/605 interchange to remain intact. Local politicians were successful two months ago in fighting to get state funding for the interchange after it was left off the list of projects to be funded by the $4.5 billion Corridor Mobility Fund that was set up by Proposition 1B. email@example.com read more
0Shares0000Mohamed Salah, pictured in November 2017, is the Premier League’s top scorer with 13 goalsLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 31- Liverpool will assess a knock sustained by star played Mohamed Salah ahead of Monday’s New Years Day clash with Burnley.Salah scored both goals as the Reds came from behind to beat Leicester 2-1 at Anfield on Saturday, but the Egyptian was forced off on 83 minutes. Salah limped slightly as he left the pitch, and won’t be risked against the Clarets if he doesn’t recover sufficiently.Klopp said: “I don’t know in this moment exactly [what it is], but he was limping. That’s never a good sign, to be honest.“We have to see what his problem was. We will see what he can do for the next game.”On whether Salah will be able to maintain his current form all season, having scored his 22nd and 23rd goals for the season, against the Foxes, Klopp added: “Yes, he can keep that standard, for sure. He is still a young player, he can improve.“It’s not about scoring only, it’s about other situations as well. He’s so important for us. But he knows and I know that he couldn’t score if he didn’t have the fantastic support of all the other boys.”He added: “Yes, I think he can keep the standard but that’s normal, all the boys can keep the standard they have in the moment.“It’s not that it’s only a run. The boys show their quality. We did that already a few times, the thing is more to get the results.“That’s what we did tonight. To get this result, the most important thing was the defensive performance, so I’m really happy about the concentration level in all defending moments.“It only showed the desire of the boys to turn this game. I was not happy about the yellow cards but the reaction was cool. It was a good team performance tonight.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) read more
Coming off a 4-1 first leg loss in Algeria two weeks ago, Gor had a mountainous task of scoring in the least three unanswered goals to progress on the away goal rule, or win 4-2 to send the game to penalties.However, the Kenyan champions increased the height of that mountain to Everest proportion by their own doing, Alger going 1-0 up after merely four minutes.Wellington Ochieng gave away a needles throw-in on the left with Redouane Cherifi taking it long. Mahious arrived at the near post ahead of keeper Fredrick Odhiambo to flick the ball home and send the Kasarani Stadium into deafening silence.Head coach Steve Polack had made changes to the team that lost heavily in Algeria, Tanzanian shot stopper David Mapigano bearing the biggest brunt of the purge sitting out for the first time this season in favor of Odhiambo.Worse was that on the bench, Gor named only three outfield players, all defensive options. Ernest Wendo, Joachim Oluoch and Charles Momanyi were the only cards the Briton had on his bench plus Mapigano and Boniface Oluoch.Samuel Onyango missed out due to illness and from the onset, Gor’s goose seemed to have been cooked.With a goal down and four needed to throw the game into balance, Gor hurried in their play, choosing to dump the balls forward. On the quarter hour mark, Nicholas Kipkurui was a beneficiary of one after running behind the defense but miscued his shot with only the keeper to beat.Immediately, Gor were punished.Abderrahim Hamra made a routine long clearance from the back and in the opposition box, Mahious calmly controlled the ball before slamming the ball between Odhiambo’s legs.The second goal now meant Gor had to score six goals to overturn the tie and hand themselves a first ever ticket to the group stages of the Champions League.They had the chances, Dickson Ambundo having two shots from range, one flying over and the other going straight into the keeper’s arms. Kipkurui had the best opportunity when he raced to a long ball but his effort at lifting it over the advancing keeper was futile, the custodian picking it out with one hand.At the stroke of halftime, Ambundo had a very close opportunity when he twisted his foot at the end of a Lawrence Juma low cross, but the effort flew over.Gor Mahia winger Boniface Omondi tries to put in a cross under pressure from a USM Alger player during their CAF Confederations Cup first round return leg match at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on September 29, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluIn the second half, Alger sat behind and waited for Gor to attack as they seemed contend with both the score on the evening and that on aggregate.On the hour mark, Muguna had a chance after being set up by Lawrence Juma following some good swift movement, but his effort hit the side netting. Ten minutes later, the midfielder had an effort cleared off the line after Boniface Omondi beat his marker to lay up the ball.With not much attacking ammunition left on the bench, Polack brought on Wendo for Ambundo and Oluoch for Omondi, changes that raised eyebrows considering the two wingers were bringing in so many balls into the danger area.Oluoch was pushed into a makeshift attacking role and almost scored a minute into his introduction with a header that came off the bar though the flag was already up for offside.0Shares0000(Visited 22 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000USM Alger players celebrate one of their two goals against Gor Mahia during their CAF Confederations Cup first round return leg match at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on September 29, 2019.

1 Leicester star Gokhan Inler Leicester City midfeidler Gokhan Inler may seek a loan move away from the club if he continues his bit-part role, the Swiss star’s agent has warned.The Switzerland international captain signed a three-year deal in August in what was considered one of the coups of the summer.However, the 31-year-old has made a very quiet start to life in the Midlands and has started just two Premier League games for the high-flying Foxes so far.But Inler is worried that a lack of game time may impact on his performance at next summer’s European Championships in France.And now his agent Dino Lamberti says his client may look to leave the King Power Stadium club on a temporary basis in a bid to secure first-team football.Lamberti told Tuttomercatoweb: “Inler is happy there and is fine, but lately is playing a little less.“Yes [it could be a problem] because he is the captain of Switzerland. Soon I will talk with Leicester to discuss a possible transfer loan, since he signed last summer a three-year program.“Why not Italy? He has found himself very well in Italy and is not a possibility to be excluded.” read more

The local Cloughaneely branch of Right2Water West Donegal will be gathering at the crossroads Falcarragh on Sunday 28th December at 12 noon in support of ‘Ballyhea Says No to the Bondholder Bailout.’The Ballyhea Group have been campaigning for 200 weeks now.The groups’ spokesperson Dermot Flynn said- ”The people were sold out to the vampires and vultures by the government. “€69.7 billion was the ultimate capital cost to us of bailing out the banks – that amounts to over €15,000 for every woman ,man and child among us.”Owen Curran chairperson of Right2Water Donegal said ” We see the Water Charges campaign as part of a much bigger struggle ,which also includes the campaign to repudiate the odious bank-debt that has been imposed on the Irish people.“Our government made it a priority to bailout the bondholders ,while at the same time claiming they did,not have the capital to invest in necessary sewage and water infrastructure. Those were political choices.”Bring placards and banners to show support for our friends and comrades in Ballyhea. All welcome.

(Visited 18 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 The old story is out, and nobody knows what the new story should be.It can be amusing to watch a dogma unravel. Textbooks told students of high-school astronomy that globular clusters are among the oldest structures in the universe, made of old stars formed shortly after the big bang 10 to 13 billion years ago. “These well-studied systems were long thought to be simple and to host a single population of stars that all formed at the same time,” Nature says. Then, the Hubble Space Telescope took a look at them:But in 2004, everything we knew about globular clusters changed radically. Using accurate Hubble Space Telescope photometry, astronomers detected not one, but multiple stellar populations in ω Centauri, one of the most massive globular clusters in the Milky Way. Subsequent studies (see ref. 4, for example) of other globular clusters confirmed that this was not an isolated finding but the discovery of a general feature that revolutionized our understanding of such objects. These stellar populations were shown to exhibit unique chemical properties that are not found in any other stellar environment. This means that these clusters are not simple at all, and have experienced more than one star-forming event during their lifetime.The problem (Nature calls it “exciting news”) then became accounting for “young” stars in an “old” cluster. The article discusses several theories that were proposed to explain the so-called “blue stragglers” (young stars that shouldn’t be there because they burn out too fast). “However, most of these theories suffer from major issues” (10/05/03, 7/12/08, 12/19/12). So what is the status, 12 years later? “The consensus in the community is that we urgently need alternative, innovative ideas to overcome the impasse.”A newcomer named Chengyuan Li has a new idea. He studied some relatively young globulars in the Magellanic Cloud he thinks are 1 or 2 billion years old. He suggests “a late burst of star formation that occurred a few hundred million (up to one billion, within the errors) years after the clusters’ initial formation epoch.” Li’s team published their idea in the same issue of Nature.But is that ad hoc? Why would a cluster 13 billion years old under go a “late burst” in the last half or quarter of its existence? “It is a plausible working hypothesis, but not a consensus view,” the article says. For one thing, “The link between young and old clusters has yet to be fully established.” To try to be charitable to this newcomer, Nature ups the perhapsimaybecouldness index and hopes for futureware:Nevertheless, the findings present an innovative approach that deserves further attention. It will certainly advance the ongoing debate, as well as trigger original thoughts, future observations and corresponding interpretations. And it could lead to a final, robust explanation in the not too distant future — an example of how scientific debate works at its best.Meanwhile, Charles Q. Choi at Space.com is delighted at the imaginary light on the cave wall. “This finding could help shed light on how the building blocks of galaxies evolve,” he says, calling on his favorite Darwin vocabulary. He quotes Li:“Traditionally, scientists did not expect that a young star cluster can form additional stars after its initial formation,” Li said. “Our finding indicates that the evolution of a star cluster is much more complicated than what we thought — there must be frequent interactions between star clusters and their environment.”From there, Choi plugs Nature‘s appeal to futureware.If you’re an evolutionary materialist, you have to get used to discovering, repeatedly, that everything you know is wrong. To many of them, that’s “exciting news.” Obviously. It keeps them employed.To help our dumbfounded opponents, we offer a “bold, innovative idea to overcome the impasse.” In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth…. He made the stars also. read more
