Three men who robbed a businessman of $5 million, along with a quantity of ammunition, appeared before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Monday and were all remanded to prison for the robbery.The men: Alvin Solomon, 34, of Timehri, East Bank Demerara (EBD); Asif Khan, 54, of Lot 149 Bel West, West Bank Demerara (WBD) and Winston Raymond, 27, of Land of Canaan, EBD all denied the charge read to them by city Magistrate Judy Latchman.The charge stated that the trio robbed Inshan Alli Bacchus of $5 million, along with 49 rounds of ammunition, one computer bag and a cellphone – a total value of $5.3 million on February 26, 2018 at Alexander Street, Georgetown.Solomon was slapped with a second charge which stated that he had in his possession ammunition while not being licensed for same.The defendants were represented by Attorneys-at-Law Dexter Todd, Tiffany Jeffrey, and Adrian Thompson.The lawyers made bail applications on the grounds that their clients were never placed in an identification parade.According to Todd, Solomon, who is a taxi driver, was stopped by Police ranks who arrested him and took him into custody. His vehicle was driven to the Police Station by a Policeman and was searched without him being present.However, Police Prosecutor Arvin Moore told the Court that some $600,000 along with the stolen ammunition was discovered in Solomon’s car.The items were reportedly stolen from Bacchus when the trio broke into his vehicle, which was parked on Alexander Street.The defendants will return to court on March 19, 2018.
A city panel voiced concerns Monday that the LAPD – even with its ambitious hiring plan – might be unable to recruit enough officers to staff a proposed station in the west San Fernando Valley. Members of the City Council’s Public Safety Committee said they wanted more information from the Los Angeles Police Department on budgeting and hiring goals for the station planned for Canoga Avenue and Schoenborn Street. Council members questioned whether the city should delay the station’s scheduled 2008 opening to ensure there are adequate numbers of command staff and rank-and-file officers. “It’s going to be a real stretch when this station comes on line … to make sure we have enough people in place,” said Councilman Bernard Parks, a former LAPD chief and frequent critic of the department. LAPD officials said they are aware of the issues and believe they will be able to find the people needed for both staffing and administration. email@example.com (213) 978-0390 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

1 Toure slots his penalty past Howard Manchester City closed the gap on Premier League leaders Chelsea to three points as Yaya Toure’s first-half penalty sealed a 1-0 win over Everton at the Etihad.Manuel Pellegrini’s men took advantage of their title rivals dropping points for the first time this season after the Blues fell to a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle in Saturday’s early kick-off.City were far from their sparkling best, but Toure’s controversial spot kick was enough to secure a hard earned victory against the battling Toffees, who threatened to equalise in the closing stages.The Ivorian stepped up to coolly place his penalty past the diving Tim Howard after Phil Jagielka was adjudged to have felled James Milner midway through the first-half.The hosts were dealt an early blow when top goal scorer Sergio Aguero limped off inside five minutes after going down under a clumsy challenge from Muhamed Besic.Everton started the brighter with Romelu Lukaku causing an early scare for the City back-four, the Belgian finding space on the left but failing to find Samuel Eto’o at the back post, leaving Eliaquim Mangala to clear with ease.The former Porto star was lucky to stay on the pitch moments later when he produced a kung-fu style kick on Eto’o as the striker attempted to get a shot off inside the box, with referee Andre Marriner only producing a yellow card to the Frenchman.City’s first real venture forward ended with a scuffed curling effort from Toure as the defending champions tried to find a foothold in the game. And minutes later they were given a golden opportunity to take the lead after Jagielka clumsily clashed with Milner, and Toure stepped up and confidently sidefooted home to give the hosts the advantage.Kevin Mirallas’ volley came close to bringing the Toffees level midway through the first-half but his goal-bound effort deflected just wide of the post, and his chance was the closest the visitors came to a leveller in a quiet opening 45 minutes.The hosts nearly doubled their lead four minutes into the second half through youngster Jose Pozo – who was chosen to replace the injury stricken Aguero. The 18-year-old met Milner’s cut back with a fine effort but the Spaniard was magnificently denied his maiden Premier League goal by the diving Howard.Martinez soon brought Ross Barkley on in an attempt to ignite some spark into Everton’s play as they continued to struggle to create any real openings.And his impact was almost immediate as the youngster darted through the City midfield before finding Eto’o, who saw his shot expertly blocked by Fernando as the visitors searched for an equaliser.That scare seemed to refocus Pellegrini’s men who had a number of inviting openings with Jesus Navas and Milner both going close to doubling the hosts advantage, only to find Everton shirts blocking everything thrown at them.Minutes later it was Mangala’s turn to throw his body in front of the ball as Eto’o belted an effort towards goal but the Frenchman’s back deflected the ball past Joe Hart’s post. City really should have made the game safe with 12 to go, Frank Lampard creating a chance with his first touch as he dinked the ball through to Edin Dzeko, who then nodded to Milner who lashed his volley over the crossbar from 12 yards.And they were nearly made to pay for that miss, as Hart came to the Citizens’ rescue with a stunning one handed save to deny Lukaku’s late volley.Everton huffed and puffed in added time, but the hosts held on to claim a hard earned victory to close the gap at the top to three points.

A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… nick statt Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Google Glass Related Posts Are you anxiously wondering if you’ve successfully talked your way into early access to Google Glass, the company’s wearable augmented reality technology? You can just about stop holding your breath. Almost.“Over the next few days,” Google wrote in a post on the Project Glass Google+ page, “we’ll be sending out invitations to our Explorer Program through Google+ and Twitter. So, keep a lookout for tweets and G+ posts from @projectglass and +Project Glass to see if you’ve been invited.”Some background, if you’ve been living under a rock: A few weeks back Google sent out an open call for applications to its Explorer Program, inviting anyone to explain what they’d do with a Google Glass unit by using the hashtag #ifihadglass on Google+ or Twitter. The Explorer Program was a chance to get your hands on the earliest version of the wearable tech unit, the very same one that many preordered at last year’s Google I/O conference for $1,500. (See also: 10 Compelling Ways People Plan To Use Google Glass)While the contest was aimed at bringing on adventurous “explorers,” it also naturally caught the attention of businesses looking to be on the forefront of wearable tech marketing. “At the moment, our Explorer Program is only for individuals,” the post explained. “However, we are working on connecting with businesses in other ways.” The suggested utilizations of Google Glass covered nearly every field imaginable, from medicine and education to gaming and extreme sports. Some highlights included augmented reality-assisted surgery, amateur astronomy and stargazing with visual overlays, and real-time language translation with on-screen subtitles, as ReadWrite’s John Paul Titlow points out. (See also: 5 Socially Unacceptable Things You’re Going To Do With Google Glass)As with many new tech innovations, there are also a number of ways Google Glass could be put to far less productive ends — a list that runs the gamut from uncomfortable infringements of privacy to downright creepiness. Some entries, few of which are likely to have gained much traction with Explorer Program judges, include watching and creating pornography with Google Glass, surreptitiously recording the opposite sex, and Google-stalking people you just met.The scope of Project Glass appears to be wider than Google may have imagined, which means that some of these potential privacy snarls are already attracting real-world attention. Just last week, lawmakers in West Virginia introduced a bill that would ban Glass while driving, and that’s only the first of what will likely be many legal issues down the road.

By Rosa Milagros Santos[Flickr, OpLove_10-05-09-1971 by Rob Bixby, CC BY 2.0, Oct. 2, 2009] Retrieved on Nov. 19, 2015During our November 12th webinar on Social Emotional Development in the Early Years: Creating Supportive and Inclusive Environments, Dr. Micki Ostrosky and I highlighted specific characteristics of children’s physical environments such as housing quality, noise, street traffic, crowding, and access to transportation that impact their social emotional development. In whatever environmental conditions we (children and adults) live, it is part of human nature for us to learn to adapt to our specific situation. For example, it is not unusual for military families who reside on and off base to learn to live with constant aircraft or artillery noise.Learning to adapt to our environment enables us to function and go about our regular routines and activities. However, for young children these adaptive behaviors can negatively impact their overall development, thereby having both positive and negative consequences. For example, children living in noisy environments can learn to ignore the constant noise around them, a potentially positive thing. However, some children may not be able to discriminate what environmental noise and sounds they should and should not ignore. In an effort to tune out noise, children also may disregard important auditory input like conversation initiations and responses by others.Researchers have noted that children who are constantly exposed to these conditions are less likely to pay attention, less motivated to perform tasks, can become socially withdrawn, and have less interactions with peers and adult caregivers — all these are necessary skills for academic and school success.Fortunately, as parents, teachers, or military family service providers, we have the capacity to create and promote supportive environments to alleviate the chronic and toxic environmental conditions to which some children may be exposed. One of the ways adult caregivers can support children living in these situations is to engage with them through literacy activities. My colleagues, Dr. Angel Fettig and Dr. LaShorage Shaffer and I wrote in our 2012 article, Helping Families Connect Early Literacy with Social-Emotional Development that literacy activities can support children’s language and communication skills as well as positively impact their social-emotional development. In this article, we share some strategies for using literacy activities, such as book reading and storytelling, to promote social emotional development.Creating multiple opportunities to read together whether it is part of a bedtime routine or at different times during the day, provide children and adults those important one-on-one times to interact. Reading together can provide children and adults with a chance to engage in an activity that is calm and quiet — away from the chaos and noise that might be present in their environment. Reading together can also be a time where children can focus on one activity and not be distracted by multiple inputs in their environment. Most importantly, reading together provides a chance for a child to have an adult’s undivided attention especially on those busy days.In our forthcoming webinar on Social Emotional Development in the Early Years: Enriching Social Emotional Literacy (December 3, 2015) we will focus on strategies to support the development of children’s emotional literacy, including building their vocabulary skills. Literacy-rich environments are linked to increased success in school — not only academically but just as importantly, socially and emotionally.Remember, as parents, teachers, or military family service providers we play an important role in designing and creating environments from which children learn and grow, and thus we must choose wisely when we do so!This post was written by Robyn DiPietro-Wells & Amy Santos, PhD, members of the MFLN FD Early Intervention team, which aims to support the development of professionals working with military families.
