BASSETERRE, St Kitts (CMC):Trinidad and Tobago Red Force ended an otherwise disappointing Regional four-day campaign on a high when they crushed Leeward Islands Hurricanes by an innings and 17 runs here yesterday.Starting the final day of their 10th round game at Warner Park needing a huge effort to pull off victory, Red Force found their inspiration in leg-spinner Imran Khan who finished with match figures of 11 for 140.He failed to add to his overnight five-wicket haul as Hurricanes, resuming on 273 for six, were dismissed for 299. Seamer Roshon Primus took two of the four wickets to fall to finish with two for 62.Following on by 254 runs, Hurricanes were dismissed for 237 in their second innings with Khan proving T&T’s trump card again with six for 74.Off-spinner Bryan Charles picked up three for 110.Opener and captain Montcin Hodge resisted with an unbeaten 96 while Kacey Carty carved out his second half-century of the game with 54 and Akeem Saunders got 41.Hurricanes were 188 for three at one stage inside the first hour after tea but suffered a swift collapse to lose their last seven wickets for 49 runs, and slide to their fifth defeat of the season.
A 30-year-old man found himself before Magistrate Fabayo Azore last week when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts slapped with a simple larceny charge.The charge against Safraz Khan read that on September 24, 2018 at Church Street, Georgetown, he stole one Samsung Galaxy Edge Plus cellphone, property of Paul Caesar.The unrepresented man admitted to the charge after it was read to him.Magistrate Azore fined the defendant $75,000.Meanwhile, 40-year-old Gary Khanide was also charges for theft.The charge read that on October 6, 2018 at Thomas Street, Georgetown, he stole a toilet bowl.The defendant, who resides at Lot 254 Thomas Street, pleaded not guilty to the charge after it was read to him.The unrepresented man in an effort to defend himself told the court that he was told by his employer to dispose of the said item.He further stated that he and another worker did as they were told which only resulted in their arrest since the employer accused them of stealing the item.He also told the court that “I am the only breadwinner for the house; I have two daughters, ma’am, and one does go to school.”The Police Prosecutor made no objection to bail being granted.As a result, Magistrate Azore granted Khanide bail in the sum of $5000 and adjourned the matter until later this month.
…17-year-old remanded to prison for attempted murderLa Retraite, West Bank Demerara (WBD) teen Peter Livingstone Junior is presently battling for his life at the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) after he was struck to the head with a 2×4 piece of wood allegedly by a 17-year-old fellow villager last week.Guyana Times understands that the incident occurred near Livingstone’s home in La Retraite village just after 19:30h on Friday.Reports are that the now injured teen and the suspect, who are known to one another, were teasing each other on the day in question when an irritated Livingstone picked up the piece of wood and hit the suspect to the shoulder. TheFather of the injured teen, Peter Livingston Seniorsuspect then allegedly grabbed the same piece of wood and lashed Livingstone to his head, leaving him in an unconscious state on the ground.Realising what he had done, the alleged assailant took Livingstone to the West Demerara Regional Hospital (WDRH), from where he was transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital owing to the fractures he reportedly sustained to his skull.The suspect, a welder who resides at Old Road, La Retraite, has been remanded to prison by the Vreed-en-Hoop Magistrate before whom he appeared on Monday. He has been slapped with an attempted murder charge.Peter Livingstone Sr is hoping that his son would recover from his injuries, as he is waiting to be admitted to the Guyana Police Force, having completed secondary school two years ago.“We’re trusting God first and foremost for a speeding recovery of our child. As he is my only child, my expectation is greater than if he was one of many,” the man told Guyana Times.The father further said his son is slowly coming around, and is now able to respond to family members using sign language. This newspaper has been told that the Junior Livingstone is still battling some swelling to his head. The defendant, meanwhile, will return to court on November 8.

LOS ANGELES – A man was convicted of murdering a businessman who was stuffed in the trunk of his Bentley and died as his kidnappers fled police eight years ago. Boris Graham, 37, was convicted Friday in Superior Court and could face life in prison without possibility of parole. During trial, prosecutors said DNA evidence linked him to a ski mask found in the car. The conviction will be appealed, his attorney Marilynn VanDam said. Graham was accused of helping kidnap Christopher Rawlings, the 30-year-old owner of a clothing store who wore a diamond-encrusted Rolex watch. Authorities said two masked men followed him to his home on Feb. 8, 1999, and forced him into the car trunk. The pair also stole jewelry and other items from the home and fled in the car. Rawlings’ wife hid on the roof of the house with the couple’s children during the attack and she called 911. As police pursued the car, the Bentley hit another vehicle, crashed into a tree and burst into flames. Rawlings was thrown from the trunk and hit a brick wall. He died at a hospital two days later. Authorities said DNA evidence also led them to Kirrell Francis Taylor, who was in jail on an unrelated charge. He was convicted of murder with special circumstances in 2001 and sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole. Graham, who had a 1988 assault conviction, fled to Chicago and then to Florida. The killing was profiled twice on the TV program “America’s Most Wanted” and prompted a tip that led to his 2004 arrest in Hollywood, Fla.

The world’s most popular way to de-stress? Mindfulness Day arrives in Letterkeny tomorrow.Padraig O’MorainMindfulness is fast becoming the world’s most popular way to de-stress and find peace of mind in these difficult times – so says mindfulness teacher and counsellor Padraig O’Morain who is to present a mindfulness day in the Mount Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny tomorrow, Saturday, 25th May.The big attraction is that mindfulness is easy to learn, he says. “People worried about the future or regretful about past decisions and experiences value mindfulness particularly and I think this is why we have seen a huge growth in interest in mindfulness in the past decade, in Ireland and throughout the Western world.” O’Morain, who also writes a column in the Irish Times health supplement, says. “Similarly, people who experience time pressures in their work find mindfulness an approach they can use on the job to give themselves a sense of space in their lives – that’s why companies such as Google in the US provide mindfulness training for staff.”“People who bring mindfulness into their daily lives find they are less likely to be swept away by anxiety, anger or unhelpful memories. They learn to be calmly aware in the middle of a busy day.“People from Donegal come to my workshops in Dublin so I thought it was high time I came to Donegal.”“If you come to my workshop you will be practicing mindfulness from the time you walk out the door – that’s my aim.” He is the author of “Light Mind – Mindfulness for Daily Living,” one of the few Irish books on the topic.“I have taught mindfulness practices to accountants, doctors, unemployed people, counsellors, community workers, managers, trade unionists and many, many others.”The mindfulness day will be held in the Mount Errigal Hotel from 10am to 3.30pm on the 25th. The cost of attending is €50. No previous experience of mindfulness is necessary and people who already practice mindfulness will also enjoy the day. Participants will be given a CD of mindfulness practices.Advance booking is essential and can be made through www.mindfulnessexperience.com or by phoning or texting 086 828 6908Padraig O’Morain 0868286908 firstname.lastname@example.orgLearn or revisit a valuable life skillMINDFULNESS EXPERIENCE DAYLetterkenny, Co DonegalSaturday 25th May 2013Mount Errigal Hotel10am – 3.30pm The simple practice of mindfulness lowers anxiety and stress, brings a sense of appreciation to everyday living, interrupts harmful brooding and helps reduce the effect of distressing or unhelpful thoughts, images and mental scenes.Padraig O’Morain has taught mindfulness in Ireland and the UK to people in all walks of life. “My aim is that you will be using mindfulness from the time you walk out the door,” he says.Booking is essential and you can book at www.mindfulnessexperience.com or by phoning or texting Padraig at 086 828 6908STRESSED-OUT IN DONEGAL?

Here, a 50 percent electoral turnout is considered a great success. In Los Angeles city elections, turnout is often just a fraction of that. In part, that may be simply because so much less is at stake in our elections. Our democracy is largely secure; we needn’t rush to the polls for fear that it could crumble. But there is more. American voters have known democracy all their lives, its glories as well as its liabilities. Our optimism is tempered by real-life experiences, by politicians who betray our trust and parties that fail to represent our needs. It’s also true that we’ve probably just come to view our rights as a given. Instead of being grateful, we’ve become blase about the awesome constitutional tradition we’ve been handed down. Perhaps we can learn something from the brave Iraqi people, who seem to be ecstatic about a newfound freedom we’ve safely enjoyed for more than two centuries. The photos of Iraqis lining up at the polls – which had to stay open late and ran out of ballots because turnout was so high – can give all Americans a sense of hope, pride and conviction. The hope comes from the tremendous success of last week’s parliamentary elections, which attracted as much as 70 percent of the electorate. By any standard, such turnout is impressive, but it’s especially so in a country where voting carries the risk of death. That Sunnis, who boycotted earlier elections, saw the need to participate in this one is an encouraging sign that lasting peace and stability may be achievable after all. The pride comes from knowing that it’s American toil, money and blood that made these elections possible. If Iraq survives as a democratic state, it will be thanks to the thousands of American men and women who have risked – and sometimes given – their lives to make it possible. Then there is the sense of conviction – guilt, actually – that comes from watching people delight in the sort of political freedom that we too often take for granted. There are ample signs that even the Sunnis are learning something from all this. During the last two elections, they sat on the sidelines in protest, and suffered for it. This time, they wised up. They realized that, in a democracy, if you want want to be heard, you have to participate. And that’s as true in Los Angeles as it is in Iraq.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
