A welder was on Monday morning rushed to a city hospital after a gas cylinder attached to a welding plant exploded while he was carrying out maintenance work on the Demerara Harbour Bridge (DHB).As a result of the explosion, the man was thrown into the Demerara River thus sustaining bodily injuries. The identity of the welder was not released by officials of the DHB.Based on reports received, the now injured man was in the company of others and as they were performing their duties, the gas cylinder exploded.DHB General Manager Rawlston Adams confirmed that the incident did occur, but he was not in a position to reveal any information, since he was not briefed on the matter. In the same breath, he stated that injuries sustained by the worker were not life-threatening.Persons who were traversing the Bridge stared in disbelief as they witnessed the incident. “As I was near where the accident happens, all I hear is boom, then I see the man fly overboard; some of the other men had to hurry quick and take him out and rush he to the hospital,” a minibus operator told Guyana Times.On account of the incident, there was a huge buildup of traffic along the East Bank of Demerara and West Coast of Demerara; normalcy was restored after some time.
Constable nabbed with passportsThe police constable who was nabbed earlier last month with several Guyana passports in his home is expected to face disciplinary charges soon.Deputy Police Commissioner and Crime Chief, Lyndon AlvesThis is according to Deputy Police Commissioner and Crime Chief, Lyndon Alves, who told Guyana Times on Sunday that this has to be done now that the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has directed such.“He will be charged departmentally; it is a disciplinary charge that is under the Police Act and that is what he is being charged under…. Under this charge, if they someone is found guilty then the Commissioner would determine the way forward.”He stated that the investigation into the allegations levelled against the rank in question has been completed and at this point, the fate of that policeman is yet to be determined by the Guyana Police Force (GPF).“The person can be fined, can be dismissed, the person can be demoted. It depends on the discretion and nature of why he was charged”, the Crime Chief noted.In early May, based on intelligence gathered by certain members of the GPF, ranks swooped down at the constable’s home and discovered a quantity of Guyanese issued passports.The rank in question was said to have been at his workplace when other policemen confronted him about the accusation and he was subsequently placed under close arrest.He was later placed under “open arrest” and still remained employed as a member of the GPF.The Crime Chief had previously told this publication that while investigations into the matter had still been ongoing at that time, the duties of that policeman had been changed.“He is still on the job since the investigation has not been completed as yet. But he is not at the Immigration [office]. He is now under open arrest.”According to the Crime Chief, the police constable had initially been placed under “close arrest” where his freedom was restricted and he had been confined.However, based on the investigations up to a few weeks ago and in keeping with the law when it relates to the rights of individuals who are being investigated for breaches or breaking the law, that has changed.“Like I said, he is under open arrest but still we are investigating so I cannot say what the outcome is at this point. Open arrest is where you move around and you can perform your duties but there is still limited freedom. So at this point, he is performing duties assigned by the GPF but has been removed from the location where his alleged involved with the passports reportedly occurred,” Alves had explained.
DISCLAIMER: Like Wenger’s record against Mourinho, don’t take this video seriously.It’s Arsenal v Chelsea this Sunday and ahead of the games we got access to a heavily edited press conference between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho.The duo discussed everything from the match at the Emirates to their FA Cup records, before the insults began to fly between the rival bosses.But will the ‘specialist in failure’ finally get one over the ‘Special One’? We’ll find out this afternoon…
THE priests of the Raphoe Diocese are expecting to meet with their Bishop, Philip Boyce, “within days” with the audit of child sex abuse in the diocese expected to be published shortly, donegaldaily.com understands.The clergymen met two months ago to discuss the fall-out from the scandal within the church.We understand that 17 priests over the period from 1974 until the present day have been identified as abusers – though at least six others prior to that date will not feature in the audit. One of them – Father Eugene Greene – had dozens of known victims, though experts believe he could have abused more than 100 children.The priests currently serving in the diocese have been openly critical in the delay in the publication of the audit and we understand they have been promised another meeting with Bishop Boyce ahead of the publication of the audit.One priest in the diocese told donegaldaily.com: “We are the ones who are suffering because of the crimes of a few who, frankly, should be exposed for what they are.“We were told this audit was coming out in August, and here we are a few weeks before Christmas and we are still waiting on it. Our leaders need to stand up and be counted, otherwise our church is doomed to fail. “Most of us (priests) believe there should be a full inquiry, a state investigation, so that those of us who serve the people properly can hold our heads high again and those involved can be named and shamed. Simple as that.”It is highly unusual for a serving Catholic priest to be so critical – or to speak out.The priest we spoke to did so on the condition of anonymity, but it is still rare to hear such open criticism of the Church like this, especially in Co Donegal.We also understand the audit, compiled by Ian Elliott from the church-run body which safeguards children in the Church, will be critical.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.com PRIESTS AWAIT CALL FROM BISHOP BOYCE FOR ABUSE REPORT MEETING was last modified: November 15th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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)

ROSEMEAD – Plans for the $12 million reconstruction of the Garvey Avenue bridge don’t address two known nearby seismic faults, according to an expert. Plans for the new, four-lane bridge do not take into account the Puente Hills blind thrust fault or the Whittier strike slip fault, said Ben Hushmand of the Tustin-based geotechnical firm Hushmand and Associates. Hushmand was hired by Rosemead to review plans for the Garvey Avenue and the Hellman Avenue bridges, slated for reconstruction next year. Plans for the two-lane Hellman Avenue bridge over Alhambra Wash didn’t take into account a fault within about a mile of the project, Hushmand said. When he told City Hall of the missing detail, he said he didn’t get much response. But his concerns about the two faults near the Garvey Avenue bridge are being looked into. Councilwoman Margaret Clark at a meeting on Tuesday said she would investigate the matter. The designs for the Garvey Avenue bridge are based on Caltrans maps of area fault lines, Hushmand said. But the maps are only up to date as of 1996 and do not include the Puente Hills blind thrust fault, according to Hushmand. That fault was discovered by a Harvard professor in 1999. The Puente Hills fault is now considered the source of the 1987 Whittier earthquake that killed eight people and caused $358 million in property damage to 10,500 homes and businesses, according to the California Geological Survey. “A report will not be complete without addressing all the faults in the area,” Hushmand said. “In the case of Garvey, there might not be any changes (in the design of the bridge), but at least they could have addressed the question, they could have put off all these doubts about the design.” firstname.lastname@example.org (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717

Just in case, here is a list I hope you find me worthy of.#1 A normal growing season (I don’t know what normal is but a little rain in July will be appreciated)#2 A mild calving season (I know the timing is all my fault but anything above 25 degrees would be great)#3 I like my iron dealer and all, but if I didn’t have to call him for service more than once next year that’d be alright.#4 Please be sure that part needed for #3 is in stock.#5 For an understanding landlord that knows I am doing my best for them and me, in that order.#6 Please change “landlord” to “consumer” for this one.#7 For the Environmental Protection Agency to do away with The Water of the U.S. rule.#8 For the IRS to nix the Death Tax.#9 For a Farm Bill that doesn’t do so much more for those receiving food assistance than those that grow that food.#10 A little more black ink than red.P.S. Thank you for that early Christmas gift in November. That should makes wishes #7, #8 and #9 a bit more manageable.Merry Christmas!Sincerely,The American Farmer
If you are not in a hurry for your purchase, consider leaving your virtual shopping cart hanging for a few days. If you have created an online account with a merchant, place your items in the shopping cart but do not complete the purchase. After a day or two in limbo, a merchant will often email a coupon to encourage you to complete the transaction. When checking out at the mall, are you consistently asked to provide your emailaddress after the purchase? Although the idea of receiving extra coupons to stores where you shop is appealing, the idea of filling up your in-box with spam is often enough to make you pass. Consider setting up a free email account that you can use only for retailers. You will not need to check the account often, but when you are ready to make an online purchase, you can search the account for recent coupons. Remember to safeguard your personal information when online shopping. You are entering a tremendous amount of personal information (your name, phone number, address, etc., not to mention your credit card information). Always make certain that you are using a personal/home computer for online shopping. Public computers, such as those at work or the public library, may store your information that someone could access later. Be certain that the website you are using is secure. Once you enter into the shopping cart phase of a website, the web address should have a “s” after the http. The “s” indicates that your data will be transmitted securely. Also, be certain that you are on a legitimate retailer’s site. Knock-off websites do exist and at times it may be difficult to tell the difference from the real thing. By Jennifer Hunter, Ph.D., University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension ServiceOnline shopping has a lot of appeal because it is fast, easy, and convenient. Last year, consumers spent $2 billion online on Cyber Monday, the Monday following Thanksgiving. As more and more purchases are made online, consider these tips to score the best deals:Before you buy, look for coupon codes. Coupon codes are normally a series of letters or numbers that you enter when checking out online. If you are a member of the website’s mailing list, you probably regularly receive coupon codes via email. If not, simply type the name of the online merchant and the words “coupon code” into an internet search engine. Typically, the coupon code will be for free shipping, upgraded shipping, or a percent off merchandise purchased. Be certain to check the expiration date and details of the coupon code; you may be required to spend a certain dollar amount to receive the benefit. Daily deal websites are growing in popularity. Daily deal sites offer products and/or services at discounted prices, often 50% or more off retail. Typically someone who has signed up for daily deals will receive either email or social media alerts to the “deal of the day.” There is no doubt that daily deals offer the opportunity to grab some great items at significant discounts; however, you may also be tempted to buy an item or service that you don’t really need or hadn’t planned on purchasing. Normally, daily deals are offered for a limited amount of time and have limited quantities available, often encouraging the buyer to make an impulsive decision in an attempt to avoid missing the big savings. If the daily deal is for a product or service that you use often, it may make sense to snatch the item quickly, but be cautious not to just click buy because it is such a great deal. Be certain that it is an item or service that you need and will use. Use a credit card, as opposed to a debit card, when shopping online. When you pay with a credit card there is a period of time between when you make the purchase and when you pay your credit card bill. This gives you time to dispute a charge if something goes wrong with the transaction. When you pay with a debit card, you are authorizing the retailer to go ahead and debit your account. Most likely you will still be able to successfully dispute a charge, but the money will be missing from your account until the dispute is settled.Contact Jennifer at email@example.com
Marine ecologists have been grappling with a puzzler. They had expected that, as climate change warms the oceans, most species would migrate toward the poles, fleeing the ever hotter waters near the equator and tracking the zone of their preferred water temperature as it shifts. But some studies revealed that some species seemed to migrate in the “wrong” direction. Now, however, researchers have apparently solved the riddle: For the past 4 decades, marine species found along North America’s coasts mostly have followed cooler water, but that doesn’t always mean moving poleward.“This is really quite a neat study,” says Trevor Branch, a fisheries scientist at the University of Washington, Seattle, who was not involved in the work. “It is likely to be the highest profile fisheries paper this year and an instant classic.”Scientists had long assumed warming oceans would generally drive species’ geographical ranges toward higher latitudes. But some studies have found just the opposite, says Malin Pinsky, a marine ecologist at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, in New Jersey. Off the shores of California, he notes, some species have been moving south, not north. Other researchers have seen the same trend in the Gulf of Mexico. “Scientists were asking themselves, ‘Why aren’t certain species doing what we expect?’ ” Pinsky notes.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)In a new analysis, Pinsky and his colleagues show there’s more to the story: Many of those species were moving to cooler waters, it’s just that the studies weren’t detailed enough to reveal that. The team looked at data gathered during coastal surveys between 1968 and 2011—a census of more than 60,000 trawler hauls from coastal regions that together cover more than 3.3 million square kilometers, an area almost twice the size of Alaska. The tally includes more than 128 million organisms representing 360 species or groups of closely related species. “There’s no better data set than this for North America,” Branch says.From water temperatures measured during the surveys, the researchers calculated which way and how fast lines of constant temperature (similar to temperature contours on a weather map) had been moving. All of a sudden, some of the odd-looking results made sense, Pinsky says. Along the California coast, the “climate velocity” pointed south, so sea creatures had to head that way—not toward the pole—to stay ahead of warming waters. And along the Gulf Coast, species had been moving south to reach deeper—and therefore cooler—waters. Overall, more than 70% of the species that shifted latitude or depth did so in the direction predicted by climate velocity, the researchers report today in Science.The new research “increases confidence in the science linking oceanography, fish physiology, and [species] movements,” says Daniel Pauly, a fisheries scientist at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, in Canada. The findings also show that over time, as climate change continues, most marine organisms will gradually move away from what’s thought of as their traditional territories.The new study will likely help scientists anticipate the future movements of marine species—information that may help people better manage fisheries or pick better sites for areas intended to protect marine species or ecosystems. “There’s no point in putting a marine preserve in one place, and then have species move out of it” a few decades later due to climate change, Branch says.
