Teen dies in mining pit accident

first_imgA teenage miner is now dead after the mining pit in which he was working caved, in covering him with rubble.Dead is 18-year-old Emanuel Narine of La Grange, West Bank Demerara (WBD).Reports are that the now dead miner was working along with others in a mining pit at Oko Baramally, Sand Hill Backdam, Region 10, when the pit caved in, completely covering him. This newspaper was told that the impact of the rubble falling on the teen broke his neck and caused his demise.The teen’s brother, Orwin Narine, took three hours before he was able to reach the Police to report the incident. Due to the location and the amount of slush, Narine’s body was left in the backdam for almost two days before it was retrieved.Police “F” Division Commander, Kevin Adonis, told Guyana Times on Thursday that the young man’s body is presently at the Lyken Funeral Parlour in Georgetown.A Post Mortem will be performed on Narine’s body today (Friday) to determine the cause of his death. Meanwhile, investigations are continuing into the matter.Last month, 17-year-old Mazaruni miner Romeo Ruben lost his life when the walls of a mining pit in which he was working caved in at Gold Hill Backdam, Upper Mazaruni.A mining pit in Guyana’s interiorAnother miner, 54-year-old Timothy Hunter of Jawalla Reservation, Upper Mazaruni, lost his life on January 31 last.Based on information received, Hunter along with others were working in the pit when a wall suddenly collapsed, covering him in the process. The other workers reportedly attempted to get him from under the debris, but by the time they did, he had already succumbed.On December 27, 2018, an 11-year-old boy who was working illegally in a mining camp died when the mining pit caved in on him.Shortly before this, Lennox Douglas, 33, of Canvas City, Wismar Linden, met his demise when a portion of rocks from a mining pit reportedly fell onto his head.He was rushed to the Issano Health Centre, where he succumbed to his injuries.His death came on the heels of two other mining-related deaths that recently occurred in Mowasi Backdam, where Shawn Anthony James, 32, of Aishalton Village, Rupununi, and Deon Sproston, called “Jersey Joe”, of Lot 133 Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara, lost their lives after the pit they were working in also caved-in.last_img read more

Manchester City hit Watford for six as Aguero bags treble

first_imgCity were anxious to end their relatively poor record in Premier League games which followed Champions League fixtures last season.Of their last six such games dating back to last September, Pep Guardiola’s side managed to win just one.The manner in which they swept Watford away suggests the subject will not be raised very often this season.The opening minutes were notable for the driving runs of Kyle Walker who charged forward at every opportunity.The City right-back then ceded centre stage to Kevin de Bruyne, whose range of passing was simply mesmerising.De Bruyne’s first contribution was to glide to the by-line before picking out the run of Benjamin Mendy, only for the City left-back to skew his shot wide.Combining effortlessly with David Silva, de Bruyne continued to direct City’s forward play, curling a shot wide himself after a one-two with Silva before sending over a cross which Daryl Janmaat did well to clear under pressure from Nicolas Otamendi.If a City goal was inevitable, it came just after Watford’s only meaningful effort on goal in the opening 45 minutes when Richarlison should have done much better than to guide Jose Holebas’s cross wide of the post from a free header.That profligacy was duly punished after 27 minutes when Aguero showed him how it should be done, glancing home de Bruyne’s pinpoint free-kick.The 10 minutes which followed emphasised the chasm in class between the two sides.Aguero made it 2-0 when he tapped home after Gabriel Jesus and David Silva had combined to carve open the home defence once more.– Dominance –Having scored two goals himself, Aguero played the provider role for City’s third.He waited for Jesus to sprint clear of his marker in the area before slipping a perfectly weighted pass into his path, with a swivelled finish from Jesus doing the rest.Watford simply had no answer, except to hack down their opponents in a desperate attempt to slow their progress towards the home goal.Holebas and Abdoulaye Doucoure were both booked for bringing down de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling, respectively.Half-time came as a relief to Marco Silva’s side and allowed him to reorganise his team. It also halted the City momentum.Watford’s striker Richarlison de Andrade (L) vies with Manchester City’s defender Nicolas Otamendi during the English Premier League football match September 16, 2017 © AFP / Ben STANSALLBoth factors were in evidence as Watford enjoyed their best period of the match in the opening 15 minutes of the second half.Indeed, Andre Carrillo might have reduced their deficit in the 48th minute but his volley of a dropping ball in the area following a corner flew just wide of the post.Having absorbed that brief period of pressure, City re-asserted themselves just after the hour.First, Silva sent in a stinging shot which Gomes could only help over the bar.When the corner that followed was initially cleared, it was Silva again who found himself with the space to send over a cross which Otamendi headed powerfully home.City’s dominance was underscored by two further goals in the final nine minutes.First, Aguero sealed his hat-trick when he danced his way past three defenders before clipping the ball neatly past Gomes and in off the far post.The Argentine then generously handed over penalty duties to Sterling after the England international was tripped by Adrian Mariappa.Sterling lifted the ball high into the to complete the rout.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City’s striker Sergio Aguero applauds after the English Premier League football match against Watford September 16, 2017 © AFP / Ben STANSALLWATFORD, United Kingdom, Sep 16 – A Sergio Aguero hat-trick helped Manchester City to record their highest victory under Pep Guardiola as they crushed Watford 6-0 at Vicarage Road on Saturday.Aguero was in sublime form to help City move to the top of the Premier League and avoid a hangover from European success at Feyenoord in midweek.last_img read more

Benteke ‘doesn’t fit’ at Liverpool and he is GONE in the summer, talkSPORT told

first_imgLiverpool striker Christian Benteke does not fit with Jurgen Klopp’s brand of football and must leave the club in the summer, according to Micky Quinn.Benteke has cut a frustrated figure at Anfield since his £32.5million switch from Aston Villa last summer.The 25-year-old has struggled for regular playing time and goals in his debut Reds season, starting just 12 Premier League games and scoring seven times in all competitions.Fans believe Benteke’s time at the club is up after Klopp left the Belgium international on the bench as Liverpool lost the League Cup final to Manchester City on Sunday.And Quinn agrees, claiming Benteke is one of many expensive mistakes who should leave Anfield in an end-of-season clear out.Speaking as co-host on Monday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the Merseyside-born former striker said: “Benteke’s gone. I don’t like to say it, but I’m afraid he’s gone.“He just doesn’t fit in with Klopp’s mentality of that versatile front three, where they’re closing people down, running into the channels and getting back to defend as well – a mobile front three. He just doesn’t fit into Klopp’s brand of football.“I really think he’ll be gone in the summer, unless he wants to work with him over pre-season to get him onto that mentality. But I don’t think so, I think he’ll be gone.“On numerous occasions, when Benteke and Origi have been on the bench, Klopp has turned to Origi. You get that with managers. Some, when they come into clubs, fancy some players and don’t fancy others.”Following Sunday’s final defeat, the Europa League is Klopp’s last chance of ending his first term in charge with silverware.Few expected instant results following the German’s appointment, but Quinn beleives next season could be a successful one if the manager can overhaul the team over the summer.He added: “I think they’ll be a few gone at Liverpool, I think there could be a clear out.“I think Mignolet will go. They need to buy a new keeper, they need a new left-back and I think Lucas will go, too. Lucas has been a great pro there, but is he going to win you the league? That’s what you’ve got to think if you’re Jurgen Klopp.“Some of the midfield players, too. Lallana hasn’t done it this season and he cost a fortune, Joe Allen and James Milner could even go.“I think you’ve got to look forward and you’ve got to look big.“[Malaga defensive midfielder Ignacio] Camacho, [PSG playmaker] Lucas Moura, [Borussia Monchengladbach star] Granit Xhaka, these are all players on the hit list and if he gets them it’ll be an exciting season for Liverpool next year.”last_img read more

RENOWNED PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES STUNNING DONEGAL IN UNIQUE BOOK

first_imgLess than a year ago, renowned black and white photographer, Giles Norman, headed off to the north west coast of Ireland, where quality time was spent with his camera in Co. Donegal.Days were spent walking the spectacular sights of Donegal’s dramatic coastlines and exploring all that the landscape has to offer, including the stunning beaches, rugged countryside and beautiful horses and ponies. These images are currently on display at the Giles Norman Gallery, Kinsale, Co Cork, where an exhibition celebrating 25 years of photography is taking place throughout October.Giles Norman’s images of the Irish landscape evoke a purity of vision, mostly stripped of manmade intrusion.Wider views of wild, remote places intermingle with small details of windows and moments in urban and rural life with little concession to the human form.A shaft of light between clouds, a breaking wave, the story behind a shipwreck remind us how special these moments are. The emphasis Giles places on the art rather than the science of photography makes his photographs more engaging and memorable.

DONEGAL PUB INTRODUCES STRICT ID POLICY AFTER OWNER SHOCKED BY UNDERAGE OUT SOCIALISING

first_imgA Donegal pub has introduced a Christmas clampdown on allowing people under 18 years of age on their premises with immediate effect.The Bayview Bar in Dungloe is now demanding ID from all young people.In a statement posted on the Bayview Bar’s Facebook page today, proprietor Patrick Boyle described as “frightening” the number of underage people in the town of Dungloe on St Stephen’s night.Mr Boyle said the volume of underage people made it difficult to identify them particularly with older people buying them drink. The premises is now introducing a strict ID policy and has stressed that ID will be requested at the door or gate before entry can be gained.“The Bayview Bar appreciates its customers and love to see families enjoying themselves, but it’s important that underage drinking is stamped out.“Unless you carry ID you will not be served drink on these premises,” the statement said.The Bayview has been praised on social media for its stance.  DONEGAL PUB INTRODUCES STRICT ID POLICY AFTER OWNER SHOCKED BY UNDERAGE OUT SOCIALISING was last modified: December 28th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:Bayview BardonegaldrinkdungloeIDUnderagelast_img read more

Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation welcome European Council commitment to fisheries

first_imgNew draft guidelines published by the European Council this week, have been very positively received by the Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation.Its key concerns of avoidance of separation from other sectors as well as the retention of existing reciprocal access to fishing waters and resources are fully recognised in the draft text.The draft guidelines, issued by the Council which sketch out the likely course of negotiations on the future relationship between the EU and the UK, make specific reference to fisheries in article seven which states: “Trade in goods, with the aim of covering all sectors, which should be subject to zero tariffs and no quantitative restrictions with appropriate accompanying rules of origin. In this context, existing reciprocal access to fishing waters and resources should be maintained.”This good news comes on top of the transitional guidelines issued by the Council on January 29th last, which clearly states that during the transition period:“Specific consultations should also be foreseen with regard to the fixing of fishing opportunities (total allowable catches) during the transition period, in full respect of the Union acquis.”KFO Chief Executive, Seán O’Donoghue said the Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation has lobbied intensely, in conjunction with our European Fisheries Alliance (EUFA) colleagues, to have these key commitments included both in the transitional arrangements and in the phase two trade negotiations. He added “I would like to acknowledge the role played by Minister Creed and his officials in achieving this welcome result. I would simultaneously like to put on record it is now imperative that the Minister and his team fight tooth and nail to ensure the commitments set out in the draft text are retained in the final document to be agreed at Council by the end of this month.“I held lengthy discussions with the French Ambassador, Stéphane Crouzat in Killybegs this week and he has developed a deep appreciation of the situation in which the Irish fishing industry finds itself. The French industry too, would be decimated were the UK to restrict access to its waters and increase its percentage share of the TACs.”EU chief negotiator, Michel Barnier has also last week, reiterated his message that the issue of fisheries cannot be addressed in isolation from the wider trade agreement which is what the KFO and EUFA have stated from the outset.Both firmly believe that the unique nature of fisheries, a shared resource, must be considered within the context of wider trade relations as has now been set out in the draft guidelines.Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation welcome European Council commitment to fisheries was last modified: March 9th, 2018 by StephenShare 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:BrexitdonegalKFOKillybegslast_img read more

Second-half blitz earns Tigers fourth victory
