Victims of ECD criminal gang claim being ignored by Police

first_imgThe victims of the notorious “Salt Fish” criminal gang are claiming that they have been given the royal run-around by the Police as they try to get information relating to their home invasion at Good Hope, East Coast Demerara (ECD) last Sunday.Michael Basdeo, the primary victim of the home invasion, indicated to this newspaper that they were being treated as if they were “the criminals”.The home where the stolen articles were foundRobbery victim Michael Basdeo“On more than three occasions, I tried contacting the Police at the Vigilance Police Station to get information on the matter, but it seems as if they don’t want me to get justice,” Basdeo said.He is fearful for his safety and that of his family as he believes the gang is capable of returning. He indicated that the gang was well-known to the Police, and one officer who visited his home after the robbery was reported told him that “these man them does spin back”.The distraught man went on to vent his frustration about the system of justice, saying he did not know why the Police were not telling him the names of the individuals who were in custody, what they looked like or even how many of them were arrested.To make matters worse, Basdeo said that he was not informed of the proper date to attend court, resulting in him being absent when the case was called.According to Basdeo, the exact date of the next hearing seems to be uncertain, as the date reported in local newspapers and the date they were told differed and when he tried contacting the Police, the officers hung up on him.Basdeo is also puzzled as to why his stolen laptop was confiscated as evidence and his car, which happens to be significantly damaged, was not secured as evidence and its theft was only considered “simple larceny”.The gang allegedly sneaked into the Lot 81 Good Hope, ECD home around 02:30h and escaped with a quantity of cash and valuables, including Basdeo’s car. Basdeo retrieved his mangled car, which was found abandoned at Market Street, Annandale, ECD. The bandits had crashed his car into a stall and made good their escape.Individuals around the area who had witnessed the accident described the occupants who exited the vehicle as the “notorious Salt Fish gang”, and pointed the Police and Basdeo in the direction of their home in Annandale.Arrests were made as a result of finding a number of Basdeo’s stolen articles in the alleged bandits’ home.This led to a mother and her two sons appearing before Magistrate Alisha George at the Cove and John Magistrate’s Court on larceny charges. The woman, Mansoon Mohammed, was charged with unlawful possession, but pleaded not guilty and was placed on $40,000 bail. Her sons, Zaman and Hazihidiri Mohamed were also charged with seven counts of larceny and break and enter. They too pleaded not guilty, but the prosecution objected to bail. They were remanded to prison.last_img read more

Story Links Live Stats Full Schedule Roster SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Freshman Scott Misselhorn (Cape Town, South Africa) scored his first career goal for the Drake University men’s soccer team in a 1-1 draw at Missouri State, Saturday, in Missouri Valley Conference action. “Missouri State’s undefeated record at home shows that this is not an easy place to play,” said head coach Gareth Smith. “I am happy with aspects of the performance but feel like we could have got more from the game. Other than a few concentration lapses, we were very good defensively for long periods of the game. Great credit has to go to Darrin for an outstanding save in the penalty kick at a critical moment in the game.”center_img Missouri State (7-4-2, 3-1-1 MVC) scored the first goal of the match in the 19th minute as Robbie Osclica found the net off a corner kick from Phil Woods.

Drake bounced back with four attempts in the second overtime with shots by Steven Enna (Overland Park, Kan.), Mueng Sunday (Coralville, Iowa), Ben Troester (Iowa City, Iowa) and James Pendrigh (Canterbury, New Zealand).   “A very good point in the road against a very good team,” Smith said. “We need to continue to refine out execution in the final third if we want to turn one point into three points.” Drake has a week off before returning to the pitch when it hosts Evansville Oct. 22 at 5 p.m. at the Cownie Soccer Complex.

Celebrate with the South Centers

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest For the last quarter-century, a small southern Ohio village has hosted a center with university scientists conducting world-class agricultural research, and area entrepreneurs have thrived thanks to guidance from the center’s expert marketing and development specialists.It was Oct. 1, 1991, when The Ohio State University South Centers first opened. Then known as the Piketon Research and Extension Center, the facility was designed to help Ohio State expand its land-grant mission of providing science-based outreach and engagement in the area.“Having the center here in southern Ohio brings ideas and opportunities to the local region,” said Tom Worley, who started at the center in 2000 and was named director in 2005. “And even though we focus on southern Ohio, many of our efforts have an impact across the state and the nation, as well as internationally.“That’s ultimately what the university does, bring new ideas and concepts and provide leadership to bring people together that can spawn even newer and different applications.”Take a wagon tourThe center will host an anniversary open house on Sept. 15, 5-8 p.m., with refreshments and in-depth walking and wagon tours to allow visitors to get a firsthand look at the operation, Worley said.Participants will be able to visit and talk with specialists working in:* Aquaculture. In addition to the fish ponds and hatchery, visitors to the aquaculture program will also be able to see the genetics lab. “We have worked to improve the genetics of yellow perch, bluegill and largemouth bass,” Worley said. “It’s state-of-the-art genetic work.”* Specialty crops. The center is home to research trials on small fruits such as blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries, as well as Chinese goji berries, elderberries and chokeberries. And, while adult beverages aren’t on the menu, visitors will be able to learn about the center’s research on wine grape varieties and hops and malting barley production. The center is also home to the university’s pumpkin research trials, and is home base for its study of high tunnels, or hoop houses, for extending Ohio’s growing season for specialty crops. For example, one project is currently examining high tunnels and other production methods to increase strawberry production from the traditional four-week harvest season in June to a four-month production system.* Soil, Water and Bioenergy. This team’s focus is on agricultural practices that sustain soil and water resources and are economical for growers.“We are conducting studies related to the movement of water through the soil profile and we’re testing for the presence of fertilizers and pesticides,” Worley said. “Visitors will be able to see the sump houses, which are like a small cellar, to see how we collect the samples from the groundwater.” The team is also working with a Japanese company on water- and nutrient-saving technology in growing corn and soybeans.“It’s like putting plants on life support,” Worley said. “We’re using a hoop house to create desert-like conditions for the study, and supplying all the water and nutrients the crops need through a tube. It’s cutting-edge research.”The team also studies ways to improve soil health and is wrapping up a study on perennial grasses such as miscanthus, big blue stem and switchgrass that could be grown on marginal land for bioenergy purposes.* Business. The center’s business programs include a Small Business Development Center and a business incubator, the 27,000-square-foot Endeavor Center, which currently houses 18 different businesses that have ongoing activities throughout southern Ohio, Worley said.Talking business“Visitors will be able to meet our business development specialists and talk with them about the assistance we provide in terms of business planning, market analysis and management issues for small business startups and expansion,” he said.Also on hand will be specialists with the center’s Ohio Cooperative Development Center and Ohio Direct Marketing program.Before the open house, the center will host a lunch for invited guests, primarily longtime supporters of the center, Worley said.During that program, Worley will recognized four employees who have been with the center since its opening: Marsha Amlin, assistant to the director and fiscal officer; Wayne Lewis, farm and research field operations manager; Dean Rapp, aquaculture research assistant; and Duane Rigsby, technology coordinator.For more information about the open house, contact Charissa Gardner at 740-289-2071, ext. 132, or gardner.1148@osu.edu.last_img read more

Wanted: An API for Sharing

It’s similar to several other services, such as NeighborGoods, Share Some Sugar and Freecycle. But with so many sharing sites, it’s hard to figure out where to turn. If I wanted to borrow a power drill in Portland, I’d need to search each of these sites individually. In a blog post at Sharable Kassi co-founder Juho Makkonen, proposed a common API that would enable users to search multiple sharing sites at once.“We would have to define an ontology that maps all the resources that can be shared (stuff, skills, space) and their subtypes and properties related to them,” he writes.Makkonen suggests that a site could use the common API to show search results from another site. “For example, if you were searching for a certain tool from NeighborGoods and did not find it, the search would then return results from Share Some Sugar and Freecycle.”Makkonen compares the idea to OpenSocial, but perhaps the Google Product Search data feed is a better model.Either way, as Makkonen points out, it’s not a perfect idea:When actually borrowing the item, the users would still need to sign up for those services. They would not be able to take their data from the original service with them. This data would include feedback received from other users and other information that is vital to facilitate sharing. A person with an excellent reputation as a frequent lender and a trustworthy borrower in NeighborGoods would become a suspicious newbie in Share Some Sugar.Makkonen suggests a distributed data storage system silimar to Diaspora could be used.What do you think – would this be helpful?
