CANU unearths cocaine in lumber

first_imgSeveral workers at a lumber yard at Zeelugt, East Bank Essequibo, were taken into custody following the discovery of a quantity of cocaine in several pieces of lumber that were being prepared for export.The bust was made by members of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit late on Friday afternoon, after receiving a tip about the operation.Upon their arrival at the lumber yard, a consignment of lumber was being processed to be transported; and upon inspection, the cocaine was found neatly packed among the lumber.The ranks immediately shut down operations and began their investigations. Further checks unearthed several other packets of the illegal substance.The workers were questioned and based on reports gathered, the bust may be connected to persons linked to the local racing fraternity. Attempts to contact officials of CANU proved futile. Investigations are ongoing.last_img read more

Kenya Simbas turn their claws on Germany

first_img“We are playing at home and the levels of pressure are intense, but then no one wants to lose whether home or away. We know Germany will come hard on us but this is it for us, it sets the tone for our season,” skipper K’Opondo said.He added; “We are looking to make sure everything we are trying to set up going forward comes into play from this weekend and infront of our home fans, it is more than important to win.”Head coach Jerome Paarwater has named a squad blended with youth and experience for the Germany tie and team manager Simiyu has affirmed they are ready to do their best especially having come through from a 10-day camp in South Africa.“Apart from giving us a good leap into the season, we are also looking at the rankings. Winning will be key in earning us more points. The players are really up to the task because we have done a lot of work over the past one month since we started training,” Simiyu noted.The team had a training camp courtesy of Super Rugby side Western Province where they put up and trained in their facilities in Cape Town as well as playing training matches.“It was a good experience because if you want to play against the best, you have to train with the best. The boys got very good exposure in those 10 days where we focused on fine tuning a few technical areas which we though needed polishing.”“We also worked on preparing the boys to perform at a high level both physically and mentally. To perform well, you not only need to be very fit physically but mentally as well,” the Team manager added.-Cautious approach-Kenya Simbas Forwards head coach Dominique Habimana (left) and Team Manager Wangila Simiyu (right) when naming the team.PHOTO/Raymond Makhaya.Germany are placed 25th in the World Rugby Standings, just a spot below Kenya and both K’Opondo and Simiyu admit they will not take them lightly.“We approach them with a lot of caution because we respect them a lot since they have done well in the European circuit and are not a team to be taken for granted,” Simiyu noted.Skipper K’Opondo who returns to the team after two years added;“We have looked at what they have to offer; they are smart technically and quick on their feet. We have to be upfront with them and ensure we are defensively sound. They are a very technical team as well and we will try to disrupt their rhythm. We will also try to run them a lot and see if they can keep up with this altitude of ours,” the skipper opined.After the Germany clash, Kenya shifts attention to the Elgon Cup against Uganda with the first leg set for June 10 in Kampala. The return tie which will be played 14 days later in Nairobi will also double up as a Rugby Africa gold cup match.Simbas will then play Tunisia and Senegal at home on July 8 and 15 then travel to play Zimbabwe and Namibia on 22 and 29 July in the final two matches in the African Gold Cup. Shujaa will also have two test matches against Hong Kong in August before shifting attention to the World Cup qualifiers.“That is our ultimate goal and the matches we are playing will give us a chance to look at the deficiencies, try out a few new people and unplug any shortfalls we might have on the way. We really have to work hard from here onward,” K’Opondo added.Team manager SImiyu has also called on more sponsors to come on board to ensure the team plays more test matches as well as improve the training facilities to ensure the team achieves the dream of playing in the World Cup, one they missed by inches in 2014.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The Simbas will take on their German Counterparts at the RFUEA grounds in their first competitive match this season.

Pico Rivera traffic stop leads to shots, standoff

first_imgPICO RIVERA – Deputies fired on a man officials said reached into his waistband after a traffic stop. The man, who was not hit, then ran and hid inside a home for several hours, triggering an evacuation. The man eventually surrendered and was arrested without further incident, officials said. Officials identified the man as Reme Navarro, 22, of Pico Rivera. The situation began shortly before midnight Tuesday, when deputies stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation at Maris Avenue and Las Posas Street in Pico Rivera, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Paul Patterson. A passenger in the car got out and, when a deputy asked the man to raise his hands, the man reached toward his waistband, Patterson said. Thinking the man was reaching for a gun, the deputy opened fired but did not hit the man, who ran and entered a home in the 4100 block of Maris, said Patterson. A sheriff’s SWAT team was called to the house at 5:45 a.m. Residents in several nearby homes were evacuated to Pico Park. The man surrendered at about 8 a.m., and residents were allowed to return to their homes shortly afterward, Patterson said. Officials did not know if the man lived in the home or if anyone else was inside at the time, he said. debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Boeing appoints veteran to head new safety push

first_imgSouthwest Airlines 737 MAX aircraft at Victorville, California. Image: KCAL9. Boeing has appointed a 34-year company veteran to head a new organization designed to streamline safety responsibilities across the company.Former Boeing Commercial Airplanes safety security and compliance vice president Beth Pasztor will head a new unit that aims unify safety-related responsibilities now managed by teams across several business and operating units.The Product Safety and Services organization will be responsible for reviewing all aspects of product safety, including investigating cases of undue pressure and anonymous concerns raised by employees.Pasztor will also oversee the company’s accident investigation team and safety review boards as well as the system that allows Boeing staff to represent the US  Federal Aviation Administration in airplane certification activities.Pasztor and other engineers throughout the company will report to Boeing chief engineer Greg Hyslop.The new appointment was one of several actions announced Monday by Boeing chief executive Dennis Muilenburg in response to a five-month review by a special board committee in the wake of two fatal Boeing 737 MAX crashes.READ: NTSB says MAX certification underestimated pilot experience.The crashes led to the global MAX fleet being grounded and sparked a review of controversial flight control software known as MCAS.Boeing is finalizing a new version of the flight control software aimed at proving to the FAA the grounded aircraft should be re-certified as safe to fly.The manufacturer is still optimistic this will happen early in the fourth quarter, although the optimism is not shared by a number of its customersIt also needs to convince the flying public, lawmakers and others that it has addressed any problems with its safety culture and processes.“My team and I embrace our board’s recommendations and are taking immediate steps to implement them across the company in partnership with our people, while continuing and expanding our ongoing efforts to strengthen safety across Boeing and the broader aerospace industry,’’ Muilenburg said in a statement.The Boeing chief told Bloomberg News he had considered external candidates to head the new team  before deciding Pasztor’s deep knowledge of Boeing would give her a running start.“She, from a technical qualification standpoint, is the best,’’ he said.Other responses to the committee recommendations by the company include the establishment of a design requirements program “to strengthen a culture of continuous improvement, learning and innovation”The company is also enhancing its Continued Operation Safety Program to raise “the visibility and transparency of all safety and potential safety reports” as well as partnering with customers to ensure flight deck designs continue to anticipate the needs of future pilots.In addition to the board’s recommendations, Muilenburg also announced additional steps to strengthen how it manages safety across the company and its suppliers.These included an anonymous reporting system from  Boeing Commercial Airplanes that had been expanded across the company and was encouraging employees to bring forward potential safety issues to be reviewed by the Product and Services Safety organization.Safety review boards had also been expanded and are now led by senior executives including the chief engineer and business unit chiefs.There were also investments in enhanced flight simulation and computing capabilities that had boosted the company’s testing capabilities.The company gave one example where software engineers over the past several weeks run 390,000 flight hours on the 737 MAX—the equivalent of flying 45 years.Advanced research and development efforts in future flight decks were also underway and were incorporating leading-edge work in human factors and design.“In addition to our focus on a common safety management system, we’re creating new leadership positions with the authority, accountability and transparency needed to make measurable progress; addressing the growing need for talent, pilot and maintenance technician training, and STEM education; as well as investing in areas such as product design, future flight decks, infrastructure, regulation and new technologies,’’ Muilenburg said.last_img read more

New App Makes iTunes Social, Publishes Music Library to Facebook

first_imgTags:#Apple#Facebook#music#Product Reviews#web Mobile media company ParkVu is today introducing a new Facebook application called Music WithMe which publishes your iTunes music library to Facebook where the tracks it contains can be shared, liked, commented on and discussed among your friends. The app, which also requires a desktop software download (currently Windows-only, Mac coming soon), connects your iTunes music library to Facebook and then continually syncs changes as you purchase and add new music. Specifically, the app publishes your top 25 most played tracks, your top rated tracks, those recently added and those recently played. After installing the desktop component, launching it and also authorizing the Facebook application (whew!), the app will display those tracks via its Facebook application at http://apps.facebook.com/musicwithme. 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… But in order for your friends to like and comment on these items, they too have to install the app. This requires the usual friend-spamming tactics most of us have put behind us as of late. (Invite your friends to try Music WithMe! Ugh.)center_img sarah perez Related Posts 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Issues, Errors and ComplaintsThe application installation, in our tests, didn’t go as smoothly as it should have. After installing the app, it doesn’t immediately run and/or hide itself to the system tray. You actually have to go seek it out from the Start Menu and manually launch it, entering in the same username and password combination you provided the Facebook application. Even after it had started, visiting the app’s page only showed a “Runtime Error” message at first (Server Error in ‘/’ Application, it says). We’re not sure if it just needed a few minutest to get going or if it required iTunes to be launched before it could sync, but the app eventually worked. Without friend participation, however, Music WithMe is somewhat useless to the person installing it. There’s no way to, say, take a track from your own list and post it to your Facebook Wall or a friend’s Wall, alongside a message like “this song rocks rocks!”, for instance. That would be a handy feature for an app billed as a way to socialize around your iTunes music.It would also be nice if the application’s page showed which tracks were being shared the most among its users, perhaps even going so far as to allow you to like and comment on those items as well. Music WithMe is in beta at present so there’s still time for it to improve, but for now, it leaves a lot to be desired. On the other hand, music streaming site Pandora’s implementation of Facebook’s “Instantly Personalized” feature is a better alternative for socializing around music, we think. Although some – including U.S. senators and EU regulators – feel that such a feature violates Facebook users’ privacy, the end result is a better overall experience. Without having to do a thing, Facebook users who haven’t opted out of this data-sharing behavior can immediately see, upon login to Pandora.com, what music their Facebook friends like. They can also like and comment on a particular band via Facebook’s “like” button, or just comment directly on the site. Music WithMe needs to offer more features if it wants to compete with this type of seamless social interaction, especially given its somewhat cumbersome installation process. The result needs to be worth your while. Right now, we can’t say that it is. last_img read more

5+ Ways Entrepreneurs are Different from Everyone Else

first_imgSuccessful entrepreneurs are really smart. Just look at Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg, guys who could get a lobotomy and still do your math homework. But intelligence is not the defining characteristic of successful entrepreneurship. Instead, the secret is a more prosaic quality: good old-fashioned stick-to-itiveness.That’s the conclusion reached by Carol Tice, author of How They Started: How 25 Good Ideas Became Great Companies. Tice says entrepreneurs are different from other folks.Not Fazed by Failure“When a normal person starts a business and it fails, they go get a job,” she explains. “Whereas an entrepreneur says, ‘That was interesting, and I learned a lot of great stuff.’ Failure doesn’t faze them. They figure out what they did wrong and what to do right the next time.”Successful startup founders are also able to figure out what they’re doing wrong while they’re doing it – and start doing something else fast.Take, Twitter, for example. It began as a podcasting platform called Odeo. But when Apple launched iTunes, CEO Evan Williams saw immediately that Odeo was DOA, so he told his 13 employees to start thinking of other ideas. A guy named Jack Dorsey developed a status-updating app called Twttr – and the rest is #history.“Great entrepreneurs think on the fly and shift on a dime,” says Tice, whose book includes case studies of tech companies including eBay, LinkedIn and Zynga, along with nontech businesses such as Chipotle, Whole Foods and Spanx. “Quite often the big thing is not the thing they set out to do originally. But they have the brilliance to recognize the big thing when it does come along.” Tags:#start#StartUp 101#startups Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Confident, Brash and CockyTo do that – abandon an idea on which you’ve hung your hopes, your dreams and your credit card balance – takes chutzpah. And this is another quality Tice noted in the people she covers in her book. “There’s a brashness and cockiness to all these entrepreneurs, even when they’re nobodies and their companies are nothing.”Trip Hawkins, the guy behind Electronic Arts – which now employs 7,600 people and made $677 million profit in 2010 – started out by reverse engineering games on the Sega platform, even though he had no permission to do so and quickly attracted the attention of Sega’s legal team. “But he played a game of brinksmanship and said, ‘I’ll do this with or without you, so why don’t you cut me an awesome deal?’ And they did,” Tice says.You need that kind of confidence to deliver on perhaps the most important characteristic of successful entrepreneurs: a willingness to devote everything they have to their ideas.“There’s a work ethic to all these great companies that’s just incredible,” Tice marvels. “They push the limits of what humans are capable of. Everybody has read The Four-Hour Workweek and they think they can press a button and make bazillions. But the part Tim Ferris left out is that you work your tail off for two or three years nonstop around the clock, you have no life, your wife divorces you, your friends leave you and then, if you’re really lucky, the thing you’re working on actually works. And then the money pours in.” tim devaney and tom stein 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Indian Court Ignores Nobelists’ Plea to Release Physician-Activist

first_imgAn appeal by 45 of the world’s top scientists to release an Indian doctor accused of helping Maoist insurgents has failed to sway a state supreme court. On Thursday, the High Court in India’s central state of Chhattisgarh rejected an appeal for the release on bail of Binayak Sen, a doctor and human rights activist.Sen, the vice president of India’s People’s Union for Civil Liberties, was arrested in 2007 and accused of aiding Maoist rebels in Chhattisgarh, known as Naxalites, by smuggling notes from one of them being held in jail. He was released on bail in May 2009 but was convicted of sedition and sentenced to life in prison on 24 December 2010. His lawyers have said that they will appeal to India’s Supreme Court.In their petition (below), the Nobelists express their “astonishment and dismay at the unjust life sentence.” They ask that Sen be released on bail and that “his appeal is heard without delay under the highest standards of Indian law.” Sen is an “exceptional, courageous, and selfless colleague, dedicated to helping those in India who are least able to help themselves,” the statement says.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(*)The petition was authored by chemistry Nobel laureate and Rice University professor emeritus Robert Curl and released to the Indian media on Monday, says Carol Corillon, the executive director of the International Human Rights Network of Academies and Scholarly Societies. Curl and Corillon visited Sen in prison in 2008.Corillon says that Sen is suffering from heart problems and that his wife and two daughters are living in very difficult circumstances. Sen has “really sacrificed a lot,” she says.February 8, 2011Appeal for Indian Medical Doctor, Binayak SenWe, the [45] undersigned Nobel Laureates, respectfully express our astonishment and dismay at the unjust life sentence handed down last month in India to a fellow scientist and human rights advocate, 61-year-old Dr. Binayak Sen.We note that, when Dr. Sen was on trial in 2008 and many of us appealed for his release on bail, a year later the Supreme Court of India concurred with our opinion and ordered his immediate release. Several months after voicing our concern about Dr. Sen’s detention, one of us traveled to Chhattisgarh; met government officials; consulted Dr. Sen’s family, lawyers, and colleagues; visited his remote clinic to learn more about his selfless work with the Adivasis; and, after a few days and many hours spent waiting in the Raipur prison yard, finally met with Dr. Sen himself in the presence of the prison warden.We have seen that Dr. Sen is an exceptional, courageous, and selfless colleague, dedicated to helping those in India who are least able to help themselves. Yet his recompense has been two years in prison under difficult conditions, a blatantly unfair trial lasting two years in the so-called “Fast Track” Sessions Court, an unjust conviction of sedition and conspiracy, and condemnation to life imprisonment.We earnestly hope that our renewed appeal is heard. We know that there are leaders in India who have the power, humanity, patriotism, and decency to speak out against this injustice. We entreat those leaders to act now, to urge Dr. Sen’s immediate release on bail, and insist that this time his appeal is heard without delay under the highest standards of Indian law. Surely, those who would see the largest democracy in the world survive and thrive can do no less at this crucial time for both Dr. Sen and for the future of justice in India.Respectfully,Peter Agre, Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 2003Kenneth J.
