Category: eiulundiacdkojfp Driver held for killing senior citizen

first_imgA 51-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly killing a 73-year-old woman at her residence in south-east Delhi’s Sarita Vihar last week, the police said on Wednesday.Deputy Commissioner of Police (South-East) Chinmoy Biswal said that the accused has been identified as Mehboob, a resident of Madanpur Khadar, who used to work as a driver in the same society where the victim, Savitri Pandey, used to reside with her husband Radha Kishan Pandey.Ms. Pandey was found with her throat slit on November 17. Her son, a chartered accountant, who lives in an accommodation behind the victim’s house, and neighbours rushed her to a nearby hospital where she was declared dead. Mr. Pandey had stepped out to meet a friend when the incident happened.Mr. Biswal said the family was asked about all their domestic helps and people they were in regular contact with. “It’s a gated colony, therefore it had to be a person who had easy access to the colony,” Mr. Biswal said.Over 15 teams working on the case scanned CCTV footage of the entire area because the camera installed outside the victim’s residence was not working. “Over 100 persons were questioned and movement of all the domestic helps in touch with the victim’s family was monitored,” the officer said.The family, during questioning, mentioned that the driver of a neighbour also got in touch with them about 15 days ago on the pretext of giving them a letter. “He went insides the house to conduct a reccee on the pretext of giving an envelop which was later found empty. For a possibility to come again, he left his helmet there,” the officer said.Two days before the incident, Mehboob went to meet the woman again and requested her to give him ₹1 lakh citing that he was in dire need of money as his wife was ill, but the woman refused.“On the day of the incident, he went again and was allowed inside because the woman knew him. The accused then showed her a knife which he had bought a week ago. The woman started screaming. He thought she will easily give the cash and jewellery but his plan failed when she started shouting. He slit her throat fearing being identified and fled with the jewellery the woman was wearing,” Mr. Biswal said.Police said that they have recovered some jewellery and a jacket which he had taken from the house, along with weapon of offence. “His two sons-in-law are lodged in jail in connection with a robbery case,” the DCP said.last_img read more

Ox-rated!

Category: eiulundiacdkojfp Scary Good: 5 Fear-Inspired Halloween Cocktails From Saxon + Parole

first_img 10 Refreshing Labor Day Cocktail Recipes to Salute the End of Summer When choosing to create a set of cocktails, you can start from a lot of different places. You can center the menu on a particular spirit, a season, or even on a technique. For this Halloween season, Masa Urushido of New York’s Saxon + Parole created a cocktail list based completely on phobias, which when you think about it, is just about perfect. What better way to face one’s fear than to drink through it?We sat down with Urushido to get the inside scoop on what it was like to create a set of cocktails all based on what scares people the most.On the origin of the theme: “I wanted the drinks to evoke the spooky element that Halloween is known for, but keep them refined and approachable—after all, we want people to enjoy the drinks and not be too frightened off! Once we decided on the phobia theme, we honed in on a spirit based on the type of cocktail that could best match the phobia.” On the cocktails themselves: “For example, a twist on a dark and stormy could really play nicely to the fear of darkness, and a richer, espresso-infused Sugar Island Spiced Rum added the perfect touch. The Berry Transfusion uses a beet grenadine that looks like blood and travels down the ice like blood through veins (gory, yet refined!). Ménage a Trois Berry Vodka was an ideal choice for this because it syncs with the berry flavor profile of this drink without any overwhelming sweetness. Finally, Maker’s 46 was an obvious choice for pyrophobia (fear of fire); this bourbon features seared French staves to create a bolder, richer flavor, so it was fun coming up with a cocktail focused around that.”Check out the recipes below, then say thanks to Urushido for making sure you’ll never suffer from the fear of not having a good cocktail ready.Up in Flames (Pyrophobia)2 parts Maker’s 46¾ part lemon juice¾ part of grilled peach sherbet*2-3 mint leaves for garnishMethod: Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with mint leaves and top off the drink by flaming ground cinnamon.*Sherbet: Grill 2-3 peaches (or any seasonal fruit) until nicely charred.

Category: eiulundiacdkojfp Liberals unveil 3B solesource deal for armoured vehicles ahead of election

first_imgThe Canadian Press OTTAWA — The federal Liberal government says it plans to award a multibillion-dollar contract for hundreds of light armoured vehicles to General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada without holding a competition, while also giving the company in London, Ont., a $650-million loan.The surprise loan and sole-sourced deal for 360 LAVs was announced today by Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, only weeks before a federal election campaign in which the Liberals, New Democrats and Conservatives are expected to fight tooth and nail for seats across southern Ontario.The government says the new LAVs are different from the ones GDLS has been building for Saudi Arabia as part of a $15-billion deal that has caused the company and federal government endless grief because of the Saudi kingdom’s abysmal human-rights record.It also says holding a competition was not in the public’s interest because the new vehicles are largely the same as those already owned by the Canadian Forces.The government, which did not immediately provide details on the loan, also says awarding the sole-sourced contract now will prevent layoffs while saving time and money after the company recently upgraded the military’s existing LAV fleet.Conservative defence critic James Bezan nonetheless accused the Liberals of “cynical electioneering” and trying to distract attention away from the SNC-Lavalin affair by announcing the deal with GDLS now.last_img read more

Adopting a pet from a shelter is an absolutely transformative experience: It heals you.“All facets of compassionate, mindful living move me. For me that means I choose not to eat animals or use things that have been tested on them or support companies that profit on animals’ pain, such as circuses.

first_img http://jrnl.ie/3368884 Image: Sam Boal Share Tweet Email3 Joan Burton told being called a c**t at a protest should be ‘water off a duck’s back’, court hears This is day three of the Jobstown false imprisonment trial. 39,461 Views FORMER TÁNAISTE JOAN Burton has denied she left out any reference to “water protesters” in her statement to gardaí because she wanted to make the protesters out as a “disorganised rabble”.Under questioning from defence counsel today Ms Burton denied she left any reference to water protesters out of her statement to gardaí because she did not want to give them a “veneer of legitimacy”.Burton took the witness stand for the third day today in the Dublin Circuit Criminal Court trial of Solidarity TD Paul Murphy and six other water protesters.Murphy (34), together with South Dublin Councillors Kieran Mahon (39) and Michael Murphy (53) and four other men, are charged with falsely imprisoning Ms Burton and her adviser Karen O’Connell by restricting their personal liberty without their consent at Fortunestown Road, Jobstown, Tallaght on November 15, 2014.Paul Murphy of Kingswood Heights, Tallaght; Kieran Mahon of Bolbrook Grove, Tallaght; Michael Murphy of Whitechurch Way, Ballyboden, Dublin; Frank Donaghy (71) of Alpine Rise, Tallaght; Ken Purcell (50) of Kiltalown Green; Michael Banks (46) of Brookview Green, Tallaght and Scott Masterson (34) of Carrigmore Drive, Tallaght have all denied the charges.The trial has heard Burton and O’Connell were trapped in cars for about three hours after they left a graduation ceremony at An Cosan education centre in Tallaght.PoliticalDefence barrister Michael O’Higgins, SC, representing Ken Purcell, asked Ms Burton why the words “water protesters” did not feature in her statements to gardaí. The court broke briefly for Ms Burton to read her statement.When asked why she did not include those words, Ms Burton said “I was not making political statements”.“I was asked to tell what happened to me, a sequence of events,” she said.O’Higgins told Ms Burton that he did not defend the behaviour of anyone who threw a water balloon or an egg at her. That was “an indefensible action”, he said. His client had not engaged in such behaviour, he added.A duck’s backHe said he was also not defending “anybody who obstructed your path in a way that was unlawful”. However, he put it to Ms Burton that as the leader of the country, being called distasteful names should be “water off a duck’s back”.“Can I suggest to you for the leader of a country, while it’s thoroughly distasteful and unpleasant to be called these things, a bitch, a c***, that is water off a duck’s back,” O’Higgins said.“Not necessarily, if it’s accompanied by people raining blows on a car,” Ms Burton replied, adding that the day of the Jobstown protest was a “very unusual experience.”“This particular episode was entirely different to other experiences I had,” she said. “The venom and the hatred that was part of this particular event was unusual.”O’Higgins put it to Ms Burton that while name-calling may be ugly, it was also a person’s right to express that view as part of freedom of expression.“You should be big enough and bold enough to take it on board,” he said. Ms Burton replied: “I’m not sure why you’re asking me to be big enough and bold enough”.“Impeccable”The cross-examination became heated at times, with O’Higgins at one point saying, “Why don’t you just answer the question?”He put it to Burton that “99% of people on that protest were behaving in a way that was impeccable,” he said.“There was no rage. There was no anger,” he said. Burton replied: “That was not my experience. I don’t think that was so.”The trial was shown video footage from garda air support at about 2.53pm that day during which a dispatcher could be heard saying the crowd was dispersing.The dispatcher said they were “making good progress” and Ms Burton’s car should reach the Tallaght by-pass within 20-30 minutes. “There’s no hassle really,” the dispatcher said, adding there had been a bit of pushing when the garda public order unit arrived.O’Higgins put it to Ms Burton that those who engaged in pushing were “a tiny minority and not representative of the group as a whole.” He suggested the situation was “playing out quite placidly”.“I’m no expert,” Ms Burton responded, adding that she had not been party to the conversation from the air.“I wasn’t able to open the car door and get out and go freely,” she said.He put it to her that she didn’t mention water protesters in her statement to gardaí because she wanted to make out it was a disorganised rabble. Ms Burton denied this was the case.O’Higgins also questioned Ms Burton at length on the recession, bank debt and the bailout, at one point prompting Judge Melanie Greally to note that there was no need to go into such a level of detail.Defence barrister Ciaran O’Loughlin SC, representing Michael Banks, put it to Ms Burton that there were “many many people there that afternoon who did nothing untoward”.Ms Burton agreed, but said there were also “many many people there who were protesting”.“They were banging the car, they were shouting and roaring,” she said. She said as time went on, she found the situation was “scary and menacing”. She added that she did not identify Banks that day.“Particularly when I wasn’t able to leave the car and there was the constant worry if people got the car door open what would happen to us and where would we run to,” she said.Under further questioning, Ms Burton said she believed people have the right to protest peacefully.“But personally I would not agree with the behaviour of many of the protesters in that particular campaign,” she said.The trial is not sitting tomorrow.Comments have been turned off as legal proceedings are ongoing‘What would Michael Collins think of this?’: Joan Burton continues Jobstown evidence > No Comments Tuesday 2 May 2017, 6:32 PM Image: Sam Boal By Isabel Hayes and Sarah-Jane Murphy May 2nd 2017, 6:32 PM Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

I think the public taxpayers, football fans would have liked to have seen those questions answered,” Varadkar told reporters. “But the truth is he was within his legal rights not to answer those questions because he’s not a public servant and therefore is not accountable to the Oireachtas. “However, the FAI is accountable to the ODCE – the office of Director of Corporate Enforcement – and is accountable to Sport Ireland for the public money they get. “And I know those bodies will have questions to ask of the FAI which I think need to be answered – thus allowing us to do what we want to do, which is to restore funding to the FAI.”In his opening statement at the committee hearing, Delaney said “On legal advice, I am precluded from making any further comment at this hearing in relation to the finances of the association or my former role as CEO, or the €100,000 payment either directly or indirectly”. Much of the questions asked were directed to the current President of the FAI, Donal Conway, as a result. On Tuesday, Sport Ireland said it would be withdrawing funding from the association over failure to respond to questions concerning finance and governance within the organisation. Meanwhile, UEFA today confirmed it was aware of Sport Ireland’s decision to suspend funding to the FAI but said it would make no further comment on the matter.  53 Comments Short URL Share69 Tweet Email Apr 12th 2019, 6:02 PM 15,976 Views Image: Leah Farrell/Rollingnews.ie Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By Conor McCrave Friday 12 Apr 2019, 6:02 PM https://jrnl.ie/4589827 last_img read more

first_img HOA Opens, slew of Health Bills on Agenda; Key questions to Border Control Minister Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 09 Oct 2014 – Provo may never experience the flooding as had been seen in the deluge of TS Cristobal again. We have learned that Government has spent $162 thousand dollars on wells & drains and new wells & drains in the aftermath of that retreating rainy system which grid locked the nation for over a week. Seventeen drains have been re-drilled, while 14 new drainage wells have been dug – all on the island of Providenciales. New wells will mean more run off points for any prolonged rains, the flooding so severe that it trapped people and created health risks. The Ministry of Health on Tuesday confirmed that those flood waters and the fact that they became mosquito breeding grounds did cause the cases of Dengue Fever and Chikungunya to surge dramatically for Turks and Caicos. The figures so high and changing so rapidly, especially in the case of Dengue Fever, that officials explained they are still collating numbers… and never gave new numbers for Dengue which is linked to one death in Grand Turk. There are now five new wells in Leeward; three in Long Bay; two in Blue Hills and one each for Juba Sound, Caicos Lodge and Airport Road. The re-drilled wells included the five in Leeward, four in Five Cays, four in The Bight, two in Kew Town and one each for Juba Sound and Long Bay.

Category: eiulundiacdkojfp Vancouver police officer on trial in wrongful death suit

first_imgA Vancouver police officer is one of two former Fresno Police Department officers on trial this week in a federal wrongful death lawsuit in the California city for shooting a man to death in March 2009 in the parking lot of an apartment complex.The lawsuit, filed by the parents of Stephen Willis, 23, accuses Greg Catton of Vancouver and Daniel Astacio of the Fresno area of shooting Willis without identifying themselves as police officers and without warning him.Following an investigation, the former officers were cleared of any wrongdoing. Both left the Fresno Police Department after the incident but are not allowed to say whether they were fired or resigned, according to the Fresno Bee newspaper. The Vancouver Police Department hired Catton in September, and department leadership was aware of the pending litigation against him, said Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp. He is on leave without pay during the trial, Kapp said.The former Fresno officers’ defense has been that Catton told Willis he was a police officer. Then, Willis pulled a handgun from a holster and fired a shot at Catton, prompting Astacio, and then Catton, to open fire. However, during testimony in the trial, their accounts of the event have differed, according to the Fresno Bee. Catton on Monday testified that Willis hadn’t fired at him before Astacio shot Willis, but Willis was pulling the gun from its holster, the newspaper reported. Astacio testified last week that he fired at Willis after Willis pointed that gun at Catton and fired it, according to the newspaper.last_img read more
