The bodies were discovered the following day by the owner of the rice field and his workers.Rooplall had a cast net hung over his shoulder, his nephew had a bag with fish hung around his neck, while the elder Chandradeo had his cast net in his hand. Fish, body parts and blood littered the scene.During the preliminary inquiry, Attorney- at-Law Mursaline Bacchus represented the accused.last_img read more

Exclusive – Stoke City enter race for one-time Tottenham and Liverpool target

first_imgStoke City have entered the race to sign Ukraine star Yevhen Konoplyanka.The 25-year-old winger is available this summer on a free transfer after refusing to sign a new deal with Dnipro.Konoplanya has been holding out for a move to the Premier League after a potential move to Liverpool broke down last year.Spurs have also shown interest in the past but they seem to have moved on to other targets, allowing ambitious Stoke to steal a march on their rivals for the winger’s signature.The Potters have sent a team of officials to the Ukraine to thrash out a deal, which would be seen as a huge coup and statement of intent from boss Mark Hughes.Stoke ambition was clear last summer when they landed Bojan Krkic and were keen on Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaquiri who opted to join Inter Milan in January. 1 Yevhan Konoplyanka last_img read more

DDTV: See stunning Glenlough Bay – from a cliff!

first_imgOver the Bank Holiday weekend, local rock climber Iain Miller assisted Canadian and American tourists on a rock climbing trek around the sea stack summits of Glenlough.The trip takes on average 6 to 7 hours to complete, and beach to beach 2 hours. Iain explained that the climb is very easy with no vertical technical difficulties. All climbers had no prior experience making their day out an extremely memorable first experience of vertically exploring the great outdoors.The location is mindblowing, and “always reminds you that Neptune is boss”! Iain concluded by saying that “no one ever fails to have fun at this enormous bay”.DDTV: See stunning Glenlough Bay – from a cliff! was last modified: August 3rd, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:glenloughIain MillerRock Climbinglast_img read more

POACHING CRACKDOWN: JUDGE ORDERS DESTRUCTION OF 143 ILLEGAL FISHING NETS AND 11 BOATS

first_imgA JUDGE has ordered the destruction of a series of items used by Donegal poachers.Judge Paul Kelly made the order after an application by the cross-Border Loughs Agency.Conservation officer John McCartney said the haul amounted to items seized on the Donegal side of the Border in 2013. The Loughs Agency has to apply to the court for destruction orders on items which it seizes in the line of duty.The application before Letterkenny District Court was for 143 illegal nets, 11 boats, 3 fishing rods, 3 eel traps, 4 fixed blade knives and other assorted items.All of these items were seized by Fishery Officers in Donegal in cases where people were illegally fishing made off leaving them behind, Mr McCartney told Judge Paul Kelly.“In the case of nets, given the low salmon numbers particularly in the River Finn, fishery officers will seize a net to prevent fish getting trapped rather than wait for the poachers to return to collect it,” he said.“This was of particular concern last year when we had a period of low water and high temperature conditions.”POACHING CRACKDOWN: JUDGE ORDERS DESTRUCTION OF 143 ILLEGAL FISHING NETS AND 11 BOATS was last modified: June 17th, 2014 by John2Share 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:destruction orderdonegalfishing netsLoughs Agencylast_img read more

OOL Follies for the Gullible

first_imgLife may have begun with simple genes made out of urine (New Scientist). This should be testable. Pee in distilled water, seal, and wait 2 billion years.Were hot, humid summers the key to life’s origins? (Science Daily). “Bakeries beyond Earth”? Let’s get Sirius.Lab-made primordial soup yields RNA bases (Nature). Now take the intelligently-guided hands off the apparatus and let Stuff Happen. Check that it is all one-handed. Have these storytellers forgotten that it’s the sequence, not the ingredients, that make a genetic code carry information?One-Pot Wonder (Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich). Riddled with propaganda fallacies, this scenario fails to even consider the improbability issue. What the researchers did under carefully-controlled lab conditions is no more a step in an evolutionary history than a rock on the beach is a step to Hawaii.Evolution has a history: Before life could be formed on the then still young planet, the first simple building blocks must have been created some four billion years ago that set its formation in motion. Under what conditions and in what ways did such molecules come together to form more complex genetic polymers that were able to replicate themselves – precursors of today’s DNA? Scientists around Professor Thomas Carell at the LMU Munich, are now able to explain another, if not the decisive, step in this chemical evolution that preceded biological phylogeny. A prebiotic route to DNA (Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich). Prebiotic is to biotic as Pre-Stuff Happens is to Stuff Happens. Ask not what biotic can do for prebiotic; ask what prebiotic can do for biotic when there are no minds around.“We’re getting warmer,” say the blind men feeling for the mythical unicorn in the lab that they believe emerged from the chemicals on the shelf. “Keep those funds flowing!”Recommended Resource: Watch Illustra’s video clips from Origin to learn how to avoid being duped by the OOL pushers. We don’t want our readers to suffer from Gullible’s Travails. The origin of life is perhaps the tallest hurdle for evolutionists. But they imagine leaping over it.Here are some of the loony ideas coming from materialists who refuse to take seriously the impossibly small probabilities for getting one simple protein, let alone a genetic code, membrane, metabolic machinery and everything else needed for the simplest possible cell.
