The rain had caused the field to be in puddles in certain sections by the scheduled kick-off time approached, and to make matters worse, it also accounted for the late arrival of the referee’s assistants. When they did arrive, the decision was taken to play two halves of 40 minutes each, as kick-off was already 40 minutes late. Forward Evardo Chambers missed two chances, but scored Green Pond’s all-important goal in the 37th minute. With their new coach, the experienced Anthony ‘Follies’ Williams, pulling the strings, Irwin went all out for the equaliser. It came with seconds left, following a mad scramble inside the six-yard box, which resulted in the ball rolling over the goal line and the referee signalling goal, with Green Pond’s goalkeeper, Kemar Ogle, left writhing in pain. He was eventually substituted and the game eventually ended in a 1-1 draw. “This is a work in progress for us,” stated Irwin’s coach Williams. “It was a spirited performance from the players and the wet conditions didn’t make it any better for us.” He added: “There is potential here and we are taking it match by match to see how far we can actually go. But I am all night with this draw, which could have been worse for us.” For Daley, however, it was two points lost. “We should have won the game hands down. We missed several chances to easily secure three points. But I will take this,” he said. Meanwhile, St James High joined Cornwall College at the top of Zone A with three points, after their 3-0 victory over Maldon, who are in last place in the zone. In Zone K, last year’s beaten finalists, Dinthill Technical, began their campaign with a 3-1 win over Bog Walk. Yesterday’s resultslast_img read more

Rohee praises Blanhum for crime solving

first_img…credits Police/civilian collaboration for successGeneral Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), Clement Rohee believes the Guyana Police Force (GPF) is finally paying heed to the public’s advice in the fight against crime and that may very well be responsible for the recent success the force has been enjoying when it comes to solving a number of cases in recent months.Rohee, a former Minister of Home Affairs, told the weekly news conference on Monday that the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) seems to be finally listening to civilians and not believing that they know it all.He said there was a time when civilians were ignored and disregarded to the detriment of successful investigation and prosecution.“Making effective use of human intelligence and civilian common sense is the way to go,” Rohee said, adding that, “dispersing CID sleuths to areas where useful information can be obtained is proving to be productive and effective.”He said making judicious and selective use of informants with well-established networks and connections’ importance in crime fighting.The former security minister, who up to recently, criticized the force for not being able to tackle the country’s spiralling crime situation, said also closer collaboration between Special Branch and CID has always been on the agenda and expressed satisfaction that this has finally been accomplished.“Special Branch is the main intelligence-gathering unit of the Guyana Police Force. Their work must be fused with criminal intelligence if continued success is to be assured,” Rohee asserted. He however warned that police investigators must uphold the ethics and rules of good professional policing.Rohee in commending Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum for his success urged that the Senior Superintendent of Police be promoted to Assistant Commissioner immediately, a rank commensurate with that of the position of Crime Chief.“However, Blanhum must at all times refuse instructions and directives of a non-professional and political nature,” Rohee warned.Over the past few months, the department has been praised by the public for its efforts in solving a number of crimes, including cold cases.Among some of the major successes are a breakthrough in the February 2008 murder of 76-year-old businessman Habiboodean for which the man’s 50-year-old daughter Bibi Habiboodean and the hit-man have been charged.The most recent success was on Sunday when investigators made a quantum leap in solving the 2010 disappearance of former BK International employee Babita Sarjou, as they dug up her skeletal remains in the Seaforth Street, Campbellville, residence of the woman’s estranged husband.Sarjou, who at the time of disapperance lived at Timehri Public Road, East Bank Demerara, left her desk and computer unattended at work in November 2010 but never returned.Her family and police have since been seeking her whereabouts. The police have also managed to solve a number of recent crimes, including robberies and murders. Only recently the force boasted of a 19 per cent reduction in serious crimes thus far for 2016.last_img read more

No arrest for biker’s murder as Police review CCTV footage

first_imgDead: Patrick Matthew FraserAs investigations continue into the gunning down of a 23-year-old biker, Patrick Matthew Fraser, at Norton Street, Bagotstown, East Bank Demerara, the police are yet to make an arrest.This was confirmed by A Division Commander, Marlon Chapman, who told Guyana Times that the crime scene detectives continue to process the crime scene and the bloodstained items that were removed from same.In addition, the police are also reviewing the CCTV footage that was retrieved. The police contended that the victim was reportedly in a yard with friends consuming alcohol when it was alleged that someone discharged two rounds at him.But Guyana Times had reported that the young man, who hailed from Republic Park, EBD, was hanging out with a group of friends during which an argument broke out among them and it was at this time that one of the men whipped out a handgun and discharged two rounds in Fraser’s direction, hitting him to the right side rib and the right upper leg.However, a police source had also told Guyana Times that the young man was known to persons in the area since he would visit his friends on a regular basis. He added that based on information gathered, the young man is not known to have enemies.As such, detectives are working on the theory that the young man might have been shot and killed by someone he knew.After the shooting, one of his friends, Alex Dwayne Doodnauth also called “Alli G” of Eccles, EBD, was interrogated whilst at the Diamond Hospital.During interrogation, he reportedly told detectives that on the night in question, he was close by and overheard persons in the area talking about a shooting and upon enquiring further, he was told that “Whiteboy get shoot”.He claimed that he immediately went to the crime scene where he saw the young man lying on the ground in a pool of blood and without hesitation, he picked him up and rushed him to the Diamond Diagnostic Centre to receive medical treatment but unfortunately, he succumbed while doing so. Doodnauth was expected to be further questioned by the police.Meanwhile, the police stated that although the young man was shot twice, they have only retrieved one .32 spent shell and one warhead. In addition, a pair of slippers and a bloodstained Polo hat were found at the scene.Meanwhile, when contacted, a relative informed Guyana Times that the family is not in a position to speak to the media. However, Guyana Times was told that the father of the dead man had warned him numerous times not to hang out with the “guys” in the “drugs block”. Patrick Fraser was described as a friendly young man who loved motorcycles.last_img read more

Hodgson responds when asked whether Rashford will be part of final England squad

first_imgRoy Hodgson remained coy when asked whether Marcus Rashford will be part of England’s final 23-man squad for Euro 2016, although the manager did admit being impressed by the youngster’s debut.The 18-year-old started England’s clash against Australia in the place of Daniel Sturridge, who missed out through injury.Although he understandably appeared nervous before kick-off, Rashford dispelled any doubts he was ready for top level football by hitting the back of the net with a composed volley inside three minutes.It was the perfect way for the youngster to introduce himself on the international stage, and although his performance was not faultless – his poor touch let him down numerous times as the game wore on – he gave his chances of heading to the Euros a great boost.The majority of fans clearly want Rashford to head to France this summer, although Hodgson refused to be drawn on whether the youngster will make his final 23-man selection.When asked whether the Manchester United striker had booked his place in France, Hodgson added: “Let’s wait and see. I’ve got until Tuesday [to confirm the squad].“He certainly wouldn’t be out of place in anyone’s 23. I’ve got some difficult decisions to make.“I’ll have two or three more sleepless nights turning everything over in my head before I have to submit my list.”Despite his refusal to confirm Rashford’s place at the Euros, the Three Lions boss hid no desire to praise the youngster for his performance, especially after showing his adaptability to play on the wing following the second half change from a diamond midfield to a 4-3-3.The 68-year-old continued: “I’m delighted for him and it’s fantastic that he’s received such praise. I’m pleased that my decision to thrust him in at this early stage of his career was not proven to be a ridiculous one.“We thought he could probably handle this situation, and he showed that after only a few seconds of the game.“I thought he did very well. Obviously he tired in the second half, but there was a further bonus in that we changed our system in the second half – we didn’t think the diamond system was working as well as we wanted it to. Quite often it’s been the other way round; we’ve switched from a 4-3-3 to a diamond, but this time we did it the other way round.“It was good that we got to see Marcus Rashford playing for 15 minutes or so playing in one of those wider positions, and to get to know that if we needed him there we could use him there if he eventually gets selected in the 23.”SEE ALSO: Watch all the goals from England’s 2-1 win over Australia!

Guidant accepts buyout

first_imgBOSTON – Medical device maker Guidant Corp. on Friday night accepted an increased $24.2 billion buyout offer from Johnson & Johnson, turning aside a larger $24.9 billion bid from Boston Scientific Corp. in favor of a deal that Guidant said could be concluded more quickly. The announcement of J&J’s bid and Guidant’s acceptance came about 24 hours after Boston Scientific increased its offer, and about three hours after passage of a deadline Boston Scientific had set for Guidant to respond. The boards of both J&J and Guidant have unanimously approved the new J&J offer, which is to be voted on by Guidant shareholders Jan. 31, the companies said. Guidant’s board had previously accepted J&J’s earlier $23.2 billion offer presented Wednesday night, but Boston Scientific’s move to raise its proposal Thursday night prompted J&J to increase its bid a second time. The move came after more than a year of deal-making between Johnson & Johnson and Indianapolis-based Guidant. New Brunswick, N.J.-based J&J reduced its original $25.4 billion offer to $21.5 billion in November in response to recalls and regulatory investigations involving Guidant products. Unlike Boston Scientific’s proposal, J&J’s offer has already cleared an antitrust review, which would speed the process toward closing a deal. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita “This agreement with Johnson & Johnson provides significant financial value and certainty for shareholders,” James Cornelius, Guidant’s chairman and CEO, said in a statement. The announcement left Boston Scientific facing the prospect of perhaps increasing its offer one more time – possibly to a level that would leave it with an uncomfortable amount of debt. The company also could walk away, or press its case directly to Guidant’s shareholders in hopes of reshaping the company’s board to bring in members who embrace its bid. J&J and Boston Scientific, rivals in the market for drug-coated heart stents, are dueling for Guidant’s business in implantable defibrillators and pacemakers, a fast-growing $10 billion business in which neither suitor is a player. Natick, Mass.-based Boston Scientific had included enticements in its latest proposal for Guidant shareholders to guard against the possibility that a regulatory review could cause delays. Boston Scientific pledged to make interest payments to Guidant shareholders if the transaction doesn’t close by March 31, and also agreed to “divest all overlapping assets” if required. J&J’s newest offer would pay $40.52 in cash and 0.493 shares of Johnson & Johnson stock for each outstanding Guidant share. J&J’s offer is worth about $71 per share, up from about $68 in its previous proposal. Boston Scientific’s offer values Guidant at $73 per share and proposes to pay Guidant shareholders half in cash and half with its own shares. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
