Ricardo Watson, a labourer of Garnett Street, Campbellville, Georgetown, was on Monday arraigned before Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman on an allegation detailing that on January 14, 2018 at Bourda Market, he robbed Kerryann Haywood of two gold chains valued at $215,000. Haywood reportedly was walking in the Bourda Market when the 21-year-old Watson sneaked up from behind, snatched her chains, and made good his escape. However, on March 9, 2018, as Haywood was walking along Sheriff Street Georgetown, she saw Watson and she called the Police, who responded and arrested Watson.Watson denied the charge before Magistrate Latchman, but was remanded until March 26, 2018.

Currently airing three times a week, “Idol” returns to twice-weekly shows for the elimination of the final dozen.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Sherman Oaks-based “American Idol” hopeful Katharine McPhee is still in the running after four more amateur singers were sent home Thursday in the Fox series’ second round of eliminations. McPhee performed Stevie Wonder’s “All Is Fair in Love” on Tuesday, receiving a mixed response from “Idol’s” panel of judges. Randy Jackson, for example, wished she had injected more “personality” into the rendition. But voters at home kept McPhee among the show’s 16 remaining contestants. Those scoring lowest Thursday were Brenna Gethers, Heather Cox, David Radford and Jose “Sway” Penala, who bid farewell to their fellow contestants. Gethers, 25, received the lowest score among females for her version of “Last Dance.” Judge Simon Cowell said the song would indeed be her “last chance.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Also getting the boot was Cox, 22, whose performance of Mariah Carey’s “Hero” brought forth the Cowell verdict “ghastly.” Radford, 17, left after singing “The Way You Look Tonight,” which Jackson said had “bored” him. And Penala, 28, was slapped with the tag “karaoke” by Cowell for his version of Wonder’s “Overjoyed.” Also on Thursday’s show, last season’s winner Carrie Underwood sang her hit song, “Jesus, Take the Wheel.” “Idol” rules the ratings, attracting about 30 million viewers per telecast this season. Host Ryan Seacrest said the program has received more than 42 million votes from viewers.

Donegal County Council is encouraging motorists to take part in National Slow Down Day which takes place this year between 7am this Friday, August 28 and 7am on Saturday, August 29.Last year again saw an increase in road deaths, resulting in 195 fatalities on our roads. To date, 106 people have lost their lives on Irish roads.Excessive or inappropriate speed is a major contributory factor to road traffic collisions. The higher the speed, the greater the likelihood is of a collision happening and the more severe the outcome of that collision. 87,367 speeding fixed penalty notices have been issued up to the end of May 2015.The objective of operation ‘Slow Down’ is to reduce the number of speed related collisions, save lives and reduce injuries on our roads.This initiative is supported by the Road Safety Authority, Donegal County Council and the Donegal Road Safety Working Group and other partner stakeholders.Donegal Road Safety Officer Brian O’Donnell says the aim is to remind drivers of the dangers of speeding, increase compliance with speed limits and act as a deterrent to driving at excessive and inappropriate speed.“We appeal to each and every one of you to play your part in reducing the tragedy that road fatalities and serious injury collisions bring upon families in Donegal. Please be conscious that road safety is everyone’s responsibility.” Public and private sector fleet operators are also being asked to participate in the initiative by informing employees of the key message to ‘Slow Down’ and, whether driving for business or private purposes, to always drive within the speed limit and at a speed appropriate to the prevailing conditions.Drivers are also asked to turn on their dipped headlamps to show support and increase their visibility. The overall aim of the National ‘Slow Down’ day is to reduce the number and severity of road traffic collisions. It is every motorist’s responsibility to slow down and ensure that the roads are safe for everyone.DONEGAL MOTORISTS URGED TO TAKE PART IN ‘SLOW DOWN’ DAY was last modified: August 25th, 2015 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:donegalSpeed
A MAJOR extension will see the addition of 61 new bedrooms added to a Letterkenny hotel,An Bord Pleanala has granted permission for the development at McGettigan’s Hotel at Main Street, Letterkenny.The application, lodged in the name of Denis McGettigan, outlines the plans for the demolition and reconfiguration of building elements that previously formed part of the former Milan nightclub area of the hotel. A new four-story side extension, with 35 bedrooms, is to be constructed while a new fifth floor, over the existing bedroom block, will provide an additional 26 bedrooms. A spa facility will be provided at fourth-floor level.Residents lodged an appeal against the decision of Donegal County Council to grant conditional planning permission for the redevelopment.However, An Bord Pleanala determined that the development ‘would not adversely impact on the character or setting of the town centre, would be acceptable in terms of visual amenity, would not seriously injure the amenities of the area or of property in the vicinity and would be acceptable in terms of traffic safety’. A number of conditions have been attached to the permission.Works will only be carried out from 8am-7pm on Monday-Fridays, 8am-2pm on Saturdays and not at all on Sundays. Public lighting will be provided, which will include lighting along Speer’s Lane. The developer is to lodge with the planning authority a cash deposit, a bond of an insurance company, or other security to secure the provision and satisfactory completion of roads, footpaths, watermains, drains, open space and other services required in connection with the development.Permission granted for major development at Letterkenny hotel was last modified: November 21st, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare 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:An Bord PleanalaletterkennyMcGettigan’s Hotel
Ray Maota The leaproach looks like a cross between a cockroach, a cricket and a grasshopper. UCT’s Prof Mike Picker and Dr Jonathan Colville show off their discovery. (Images: UCT) MEDIA CONTACTS • Prof Mike Picker UCT Faculty of Science +27 21 650 2712 RELATED ARTICLES • UCT MBA among world’s best • Prestigious award for UCT project • SA unearths 18 new species • Scientists abuzz over mosquitoA University of Cape Town (UCT) professor and a former student have again made entomological history by discovering the world’s first jumping cockroach, now named the leaproach (Saltoblattella montistabularis).Prof Mike Picker, from UCT’s zoology department, and Dr Jonathan Colville discovered the intriguing insect, which has since been added to the list of top 10 new species for 2011 by the International Institute for Species Exploration (IISE) at Arizona State University.The previously unknown bug was first spotted leaping around at the Table Mountain National Park in Cape Town in 2006, as the pair searched for flies during a research project.Their first discovery was the new suborder Mantophasmatodea – comprising carnivorous insects known as gladiator bugs or heelwalkers – in South Africa in 2002.The two biologists described their discovery in the German scientific journal Arthropod Systematics and Phylogeny in 2010. The publication was formerly known as Entomologische Abhandlungen.Picker and Colville wrote a second paper with Malcolm Burrows from Cambridge University, this time detailing what makes the little bug such a good jumper and also its relation to what is believed to be the only other known jumping cockroach, the late Jurassic 160-million-year-old fossil Skok svaba. This extinct creature was first described in 2007.Unique creatureSpeaking of their latest find, Picker said: “We were sweep netting and saw something that at first looked like a grasshopper, but when we got it back to the laboratory it became clear it was a cockroach, closely related to the common roach but with sophisticated hind legs and the ability to jump many times its own height.”The leaproach measures a modest centimetre in length, and looks like a cross between a cockroach, a cricket and a grasshopper. Its Latin name is derived from Saltoblattella which means jumping small cockroach, while montistabularis refers to the place it was discovered.Colville said: “Superficially it resembled a cricket, but not quite.”The leaproach shares certain features with grasshoppers – large muscular hind legs for jumping; bulging eyes; toes that allow them to grip before and after jumping; and a strengthened antennae base which supports the delicate appendages during jumping.There are about 4 000 to 5 000 species of cockroaches but so far only the leaproach is able to jump in the same agile manner as a grasshopper.The IISE’s Quentin Wheeler said: “Most people do not realise just how incomplete our knowledge of Earth’s species is. We are surrounded by such an exuberance of species diversity that we too often take it for granted.”Spectacular insect faunaPicker described the Cape’s insect fauna as “spectacular and distinctive”, and added that up to now this natural wealth has been under-appreciated.With the leaproach discovery in the Table Mountain park, a World Heritage site, the pair suspects that other species may be waiting to be discovered.Picker and Colville believe that their discovery highlights how little is known about the Cape fauna, which could be home to more interesting species than even the celebrated Cape Floral Kingdom.“Thus far, the leaproach is only known from that single locality, adding to the impressive biodiversity profile of this World Heritage site,” said Picker.Although there is the potential for other discoveries in the area, he cautioned ambitious scientists that Table Mountain is a highly protected area and plants and animals can’t be removed from it without permission.Top 10 New Species for 2011The leaproach has now been named as one of the Top 10 New Species for 2011 by the US-based IISE. Each year the IISE releases a list of what it considers to be the 10 best natural finds of the year before.Although the final list is chosen by a committee, anyone may nominate a species, provided that it was described for the first time during the year in question.Three other African species were included – Philantomba walteri, a new species of duiker first seen at a bushmeat market in Benin; Darwin’s bark spider (Caerostris darwini), a type of orb weaving spider native to Madagascar; and the pollinating cricket (Glomeremus orchidophilus) from Réunion, the first of its kind seen to pollinate the orchid Angraecum cadetii.The list is rounded out by the bioluminescent mushroom Mycena luxaeterna from Brazil; a bacterium known as Halomonas titanicae which is one of several that’s eating away at the sunken Titanic; the two-metre-long monitor lizard Varanus bitatawa from the Philippines; the Peruvian leech Tyrannobdella rex; the underwater mushroom Psathyrella aquatic, found in the US; and the pancake batfish Halieutichthys intermedius, found in the Mexican Gulf.
Tags:#health#Semantic Web#web dana oshiro 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… We’ve all seen how semantic technologies improve search results, but rarely do we see those results put to use in such a targeted way. Jens Tellefsen, VP of Marketing and Product Strategy at NetBase Solutions spoke to ReadWriteWeb about today’s launch of healthBase – a medical search and discovery application. Using a variety of semantic indexing techniques, the company crawls the web’s leading medical and health players including the Mayo Clinic, PubMed (US National Library of Medicine) WedMd, Medical News Today and Discovery Health. What makes this a truly unique technology is that rather than requiring any data manipulation from humans, Netbase’s search results are completely automated. Says Tellefsen, “Rather than using keywords or basic entities to search through billions of documents, NetBase can actually read and extract linguistic meaning from entire sentences and concepts.” According to Tellefsen, healthBase can determine causal relationships, treatments and conditions and automatically aggregate that data into meaningful answers. Given the fact that more than 75% of the population seeks out online health information, a semantic tool with sentence-level understanding can potentially help dispel medical myths on a massive scale. NetBase employs the same principals across a variety of enterprise tools, but healthBase is its first foray into consumer-facing products. While the company is used to powering corporate, federal and market research, healthBase allows NetBase to show off its content intelligence tool in a way that gives us insight into our selves and our bodies. Because NetBase is not reliant on manual annotation or custom taxonomies, the system is also very scalable. It took roughly 2 days to produce all of the data in healthBase – a feat that would never be possible by a combination human and machine system. “It’s important for us to address real issues with semantic technologies outside of a lab,” Says Tellefsen.
