first_imgPolice on West Bank Demerara (WBD) are still on the hunt for the suspect in the murder of 38-year-old John Choong, who formerly resided at Sisters Village, WBD.This was revealed to Guyana Times by Police on Monday.Deceased: John ChoongChoong, a father of three, sustained head injuries during an altercation with the suspect at a dominoes competition on Father’s Day and died two days later while receiving treatment at the West Demerara Regional Hospital (WDRH).After the man’s demise, the suspect, who was said to be in his early 20s, went into hiding, fearing that he would be incarcerated for the man’s demise.Choong was a worker at the Wales Sugar Estate up to 2017. However, he later took up employment as a hire car operator to provide for his family.This publication was told that Choong would often play dominoes at Sideline Dam, Sisters Village on weekends with other men in the area.Reports were that some time after midnight on June 16, 2018, Choong and the suspect got into an argument and then a scuffle.The now dead man was reportedly pushed into a nearby drain where he hit his head.It was further reported that Choong received 10 stiches to his head before being released from the WDRH on June 17.He, however, went back to the Hospital on June 18 to clean the wound. On June 19, when he revisited the medical facility, he was admitted and succumbed one day later. A post-mortem proved that he died as a result of cerebral haemorrhage.This newspaper also reported that the late Choong and the suspect had settled the matter before Choong’s wound turned septic. Choong’s spouse is a housewife and it is said that she is very distressed over her family’s future. The taxi driver was buried last week.last_img read more

first_imgThe Vancouver Sun is reporting, Energy Minister Blair Lekstrom and Dawson Creek Mayor Mike Bernier, are among those who share concern that Dawson Creek won’t be able to free up enough industrial land in time, to support the growing South Peace energy industry.With most land around the city locked up in the province’s Agricultural Land Reserve, there’s speculation, an industrial land crunch, could see potential British Columbian jobs, flow to Alberta.The Sun story claims, most gas-field service industry businesses need about 20 acres for shops, equipment and parking, for the heavy rigs that support drilling operations.- Advertisement -However it also claims, it takes up to two years, working through the Agricultural Land Commission, to get land excluded from the reserve for development.The city has enough industrial land available right now, to support conventional economic growth but natural gas exploration companies have been warning for about five years, that Dawson Creek will be called upon to support a gas development boom that could last for 20 years.Thus, there’s concern it will be faster for many Alberta-based companies to set up shops just east of Dawson Creek – in Alberta.Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgDC United may have beaten New England Revolution in the MLS play-offs on Wednesday, but they had to overcome a goal-of-the-season contender to do so.The Washington-based club were 2-1 winners, coming from behind after a stunning strike by 22-year-old Juan Agudelo. Colombian-born forward Agudelo, who plays for the United States’ national team, fired the visitors into the lead when he rose spectacularly to nestle a bicycle kick into the far corner, with a strike reminscent of Wayne Rooney’s ‘best ever’ Premier League goal.To see the opportunity is one thing, but his technique to pull it off was audacious and Agudelo did just that, which you can see in the video above (compared with a Taylor Twellman bicycle kick for the same side, back in 2007). Unfortunately for Agudelo, this was not a match-winner as his side were knocked out of the competition, while DC are through to the semi-final of the Eastern Conference.last_img read more

first_imgLiverpool’s chances of qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League will come down to an all-or-nothing decider at home to Napoli next month.Jurgen Klopp’s side have to beat the Serie A side by more than one goal to ensure progress to the knockout stage having suffered a fourth successive Champions League away defeat, with Paris Saint-Germain running out deserved 2-1 winners in France on Wednesday night. ‘I’ll get him’ – Robertson further endears himself to fans with revenge vow to Mane Salah curling a shot wide was as good as it got for the visitors, for whom Gomez was having a tough time as having been nailed by a reckless over-the-top Verratti challenge was then booked after losing possession to and then pulling back Neymar.For all his rolling-around antics Neymar can turn it on in a flash and, having collected the ball 25 yards inside his own half, he shook off compatriot Roberto Firmino and exchanged passes with Mbappe before releasing his pacy team-mate down the left.Edinson Cavani’s close-range shot from the resulting cross was blocked by Alisson but Neymar converted the rebound. A rapid counter-attack. Liverpool had been treated to a dose of their own medicine. scrap Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update PAYBACK latest Juan Bernat opened the scoring for PSG 4 James Milner gave Liverpool hope with a penalty REPLY Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT BEST OF Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ Verrati was lucky to stay on the pitch Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions 4 Gerrard launches furious touchline outburst as horror tackle on Barisic sparks chaos RANKED The Italy midfielder, reassured by Marquinhos holding the ground behind him, was soon pulling the strings with an early Kylian Mbappe shot deflected wide and an Angel Di Maria volley tipped behind by Alisson Becker.In September Liverpool had swamped their opponents in the middle of the pitch but it was a completely different story in the French capital with PSG holding all the cards.With Neymar, playing wide on the left of a midfield four, exciting and infuriating in equal measure with his quality and overacting Liverpool were under the cosh and the pressure told as early as the 14th minute.An uncharacteristic error by Virgil Van Dijk saw the Holland defender half-clear Mbappe’s shot to Bernat and he cut inside to squeeze a right-footed shot between the closing Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson with the ball taking a deflection off the defender.

But the Reds were given a lifeline on the stroke of half-time when Mane robbed Marquinhos, who up to that point had been commanding, and was brought down just inside the penalty area by a lunging Di Maria.Polish referee Szymon Marciniak initially pointed for a corner, but having presumably received some advice from his fellow official behind the goal, changed his mind and awarded a penalty which Milner dispatched against a cacophony of whistles and jeers. Liverpool began the second half with much more fight, finally taking the game to PSG, and boss Thomas Tuchel was concerned enough to replace midfielder Di Maria with defender Dani Alves and Cavani with the arguably less-talented but more energetic Eric Choupo-Moting.But for all their pressure they could not crack their opponents, who used every trick in the book to take time out of the game when they were wobbling, and it was the hosts who had the best chance with Alisson saving Marquinos’ header.It is not what Klopp would have wanted having been top of Group C at the halfway stage but another electric Anfield night awaits.

first_imgLabour Senator Jimmy Harte has called for Seanad Eireann to move out of Dublin for at least one sitting a year, and to move to places like Donegal.Speaking in the Seanad he said: “I believe that this Seanad should meet outside Dublin on perhaps one occasion every year. Article 15.1.3° of the Constitution makes clear provision for this and it states that: ‘The Houses of the Oireachtas shall sit in or near the City of Dublin or in such other place as they may from time to time determine.’“I ask that the House give this some consideration. I am sure my colleague, Senator Ó Domhnaill, would not disagree that it should be held in County Donegal for the first time and after that it could sit in Galway, Cork and Kerry, to name but a few counties. “The people have to see the Seanad is active and not just in Dublin. Many of the new Senators are from rural Ireland and they would like to see the Seanad sitting one day a year in another place, perhaps in the Cathaoirleach’s own county of Mayo which I am sure would be second after County Donegal. I would not object to that.“I ask that my proposal be referred to the Committee on Procedure and Privileges for consideration. It would be in the interest of all Senators to travel. I believe that this could be arranged on a cost neutral basis.“Some Senators may not have been in County Donegal in all their lives so I am inviting everyone to visit. We will provide a suitable venue in which to host the Seanad. It will also be a tourism boost for Donegal.”SENATOR HARTE WANTS TO BRING ENTIRE SEANAD TO DONEGAL was last modified: June 8th, 2011 by gregShare 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:donegalseanad sitting in donegalSenator Jimmy Hartelast_img read more
