Police Constable charged for dousing boyfriend with acid

first_imgA pregnant Police Constable found herself before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan on Thursday to answer to a wounding charge.Thirty-year-old Cassandra Vulture, of School Street, Albouystown, Georgetown, stood before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts and denied throwing acid on Anthony Paul with intent to maim, disfigure, disable or cause him grievous bodily harm.The incident reportedly occurred on November 7, 2018 while the couple were in a car along Camp Street and North Road, Georgetown.It was previously reported by the Police that Vulture and Paul were having relationship issues as a result of infidelity on the part of the Police Constable.Paul reportedly demanded that Vulture take a DNA test to determine the paternity of her unborn child as Paul was uncertain whether he was the father.On the day of the incident, about 10:30h the couple were headed to the hospital as Vulture was complaining of feeling unwell. While on their way, Vulture reportedly took out a bottle and threw the hazardous substance onto Paul, on his right side.The man reported that his shirt started to melt and his face and side started to burn. As such, he rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was admitted as a patient.Vulture was later picked up by Police and taken into custody.Her Attorney, Adrian Thompson told the court, however, that his client was being abused by Paul and it was he who brought the acid to throw on Vulture.Police Prosecutor Simone Payne objected to bail being granted, citing the seriousness of the offence and the fact that the Virtual Complainant (VC) was still hospitalised.Bail was, however, granted in the sum of $300,000, and Vulture was expected to return to court on November 23, 2018. She was also ordered to make weekly reports to the Brickdam Police Station.last_img read more

Coleman hails Bale’s influence on Wales camp and claims Real Madrid star has got even better

first_imgChris Coleman claims Gareth Bale has taken his game to another level in the past year and is ready to inspire Wales to Euro 2016 qualification.Bale netted both goals in his country’s 2-1 win over Andorra in their opening qualifier and will line up for Coleman’s side for the back-to-back home games against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Friday and Cyprus on Monday.Coleman insists there is more to his team than the Real Madrid superstar, but he accepts the 25-year-old is crucial to their chances of reaching the 2016 finals.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the Wales boss said: “He is a pleasure to work with. He is obviously one of the best players in the world and he proved that last year – going to Real Madrid and winning the Champions League.“He has improved again in the last 12 months. He is a magnificent player and it’s great that we have got him with us.“He gives everybody a lift. We can give anybody a game and it is nice to know that when he is on the pitch he has got a capacity to score a goal or create something out of nothing. And when you have got that, it is a bonus.”last_img read more

Bond’s aunt, an Olympian, spent months in car, shelter

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! OAKLAND – Barry Bonds’ aunt spent months living in her car and a homeless shelter last year after a wreck left her out of a job, but the former U.S. Olympian said she was too proud to ask the baseball star for help. Rosie Bonds Kreidler, who ran in the 80-meter hurdles at the 1964 Summer Olympics, moved last week into a new studio apartment in Oakland in a facility for low-income seniors, the Oakland Tribune reported. The 61-year-old Kreidler said she did not go to Barry Bonds after her insurance stopped paying for physical therapy. Her neck, back and several ribs were broken when a tractor-trailer rammed her car while on vacation in New Mexico, and she was unable to return to work as a nurse. “If he knew, he would help … but it’s hard. Maybe I’m nuts,” Kreidler said. Bonds declined to comment on the article when it came out Saturday. The San Francisco Giants said it was a personal matter for Bonds and that they had no comment. Kreidler is sister to the late slugger Bobby Bonds, Barry’s father. She stuck up for her nephew, who has been accused of using steroids. “I don’t think, given our family’s DNA and physiology, that we need enhancers,” she said. Kreidler said it took months to get on welfare and find temporary housing after the accident. She has since lobbied Alameda County officials for better medical care for seniors and is seeking donations for the St. Mary’s Center in Oakland to move to a new site. She credits the facility with helping get her off the streets. “This is, I think, where God wants me to be, helping homeless seniors,” Kreidler said. “With God’s help, I think I’ll weather this.”last_img read more

DDTV: 150,000 PEOPLE LISTEN TO ENYA’S NEW SINGLE IN JUST 24 HOURS!

first_imgDONEGAL singer Enya has been back in the studio and has released a single off her first album in seven years.The Gaoth Dobhair woman’s astonishing music is already being hailed by fans who have viewed it more than 150,000 times on YouTube alone since it was released just yesterday. The single – on the video above – is entitled Echoes In Rain….and the video is reminiscent of a wet day in Glenveagh! The album, released next month, is called Dark Sky Island.Enya has enjoyed almost 75 million album sales to date, in addition to four Grammy Awards, six World Music Awards, an Ivor Novello, a Golden Globe nomination and an Oscar nomination in 2002 for the song May It Be from Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring.Her new album sees her team up again with long-time collaborators, producer Nicky Ryan and lyricist Roma Ryan – the husband and wife team who worked with Enya since her breakout hit Orinoco Flow in 1988.Enya says she was inspired for this album by Roma’s work on a series of poetry books themed around islands, specifically a decision by the the island of Sark in the Channel islands to be designated as a dark sky island. Speaking about the Dark Sky Island, Enya said: “This album has a theme of journeys. Journeys to the island; through the length of a lifetime; through history, through emotions; and journeys across great oceans.“So although it’s not a ‘themed’ album, as such, we nevertheless have an underlying connection between songs.”Dark Sky Island will be released on November 20, she said.DDTV: 150,000 PEOPLE LISTEN TO ENYA’S NEW SINGLE IN JUST 24 HOURS! was last modified: October 9th, 2015 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:donegalEnyaGaoth Dobhairlast_img read more

All I want for Christmas is some really juicy news

first_imgAll we want for Christmas is love everlasting, joy to the world and good will that springs eternal, right? That and a big heaping pile of heavily marketed baubles, toys, gizmos and designer duds truly capture the meaning of the season. But one can only imagine what would be on the Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/nondescript agnostic/atheist wintry holiday lists of some of our favorite newsmakers. Here are my educated guesses – skillfully intermingled with a smattering of uneducated guesses: Saddam Hussein: All he wants for Christmas is a Frito Lay variety pack, the Fruit of the Loom value pack and for someone to actually believe his claim that he’s still president of Iraq. That’s why they call them Christmas “dreams.” Bashar Assad: All he wants for Christmas is to not be next on our list. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: All he wants for Christmas is, er, all of Israel. The Iranian president’s naughty rating is so high that Santa has to start grading on a curve. Fidel Castro: All he wants for Christmas is immortality, an endless supply of stogies and more Jimmy Carters in the world. Oliver Stone: All he wants for Christmas is to be on Castro’s Christmas list. Kim Jong Il: All he wants for Christmas is a “Team America: World Police” sequel. Hans Blix: All he wants for Christmas is for his puppet to have a more successful rematch with Kim Jong Il in a “Team America” sequel. Jacques Chirac: All he wants for Christmas are some more genteel rioters next year. Have some cheese with that whine. Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev: All he wants for Christmas is for comedian Ali G as Borat to stop making jokes about his country – and start picking on Uzbekistan instead. Viktor Yushchenko: All he doesn’t want for Christmas is another orange scarf. Alan Greenspan: All he wants for Christmas is 800 more years as Fed chairman. Or was that Yoda? Robert Blake: All he wants for Christmas is $30 million. He’ll take cash or check. Mohammed “Baghdad Bob” Saeed al-Sahaf: All he wants for Christmas is a new P.R. job. Michael Jackson: All he wants for Christmas is some good P.R. – and a big Bahrainian Neverland. Ted Kennedy: All he wants for Christmas is some cheer – enough to wipe from his memory the fact that he praised Sam Alito in his confirmation process for the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Samuel Alito: All he wants for Christmas – and New Year’s Day, and Eid, and Groundhog Day and Valentine’s Day – is for his damn confirmation hearings to kick into gear. Moammar Gadhafi: All he wants for Christmas are his WMDs back – biological, nuclear, doesn’t matter. However, he racked up so many years of being naughty that it will take at least 183 years to work his way out of the red and back up the “nice” list. Tom DeLay: All he wants for Christmas is Mark Geragos. (See? Republicans can make jokes about other Republicans.) Scooter Libby: All he wants for Christmas is to get off on the Valerie Plame charges and for commentators to stop harping on his dirty book – which, by the way, is called “The Apprentice,” is available on Amazon, and should come with optional plain brown wrapper. Kofi Annan: All he wants for Christmas are some barrels of oil – and in return, he’ll leave Santa a nice big plate of food. Bill Clinton: All he wants for Christmas is Kofi’s job. Pat Robertson: All he wants for Christmas are a few Venezuelan revolutionaries-for-hire. Hugo Chavez: All he wants for Christmas is a big Bolivarian wonderland that encompasses most of the Western Hemisphere. Vicente Fox: All he wants for Christmas is a chance to deck Chavez’s halls.

Politician recovering after horrific cycling accident in Donegal

first_imgSinn Féin politician Philip McGuigan has told of how he suffered broken bones in a cycling accident in Donegal.The Northern Ireland assembly member sustained a broken collar bone and broke three ribs when he came off his bike during a race in St Johnston.The 45-year-old told of how he suddenly lost control of his bike and went over the handlebars. Speaking to the Ballycastle Chronicle, Mr McGuigan said: “As I was flying through the air I was bracing myself not just for the impact of hitting the ground but also the impact as the wheels of other riders used my back, head and legs as a stopping ramp,” he said.“Sure enough the bang of the road was quickly followed by the wallop of other riders ploughing into me and falling over me.“My inability to breathe properly for a number of minutes was a bit worrying.
