OA Property Holdings given Govt go ahead to construct condominiums in

As Government continues its drive to clamp down on squatting, Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan has given the seal of approval to the O&A Property Holdings Limited to construct condominiums in Cummings Lodge, Greater Georgetown.The company will construct the housing units in an area which will be known as “Gafoors Townhouses” scheme.Condominiums or condos are housing units usually styled as apartments or flats, but the units are, however, owned by the buyer. In North American and European models, the condominiums are managed by an association of homeowners.According to a document seen by this publication, the O&A Property Holdings Limited “satisfied” the requirements for a condominium scheme to be constructed at the Lot ‘A’ portion of Block 1 which comprises areas ‘M’ and ‘N’ and a section of area ‘L’ at Plantation Cummings Lodge, Georgetown.Minister Bulkan exercised his powers as guided by Section Five of the Condominium (Regulation and Miscellaneous Provisions) Act of 1989. The subject Minister’s order of approval was made official on October 14.During that same month, squatters occupying State reserves in Sophia, Greater Georgetown, picketed the Communities Ministry in light of moves by the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) to forcibly remove them from their settlements. They demanded that alternative living arrangements be provided for them.Communities Minister Ronald BulkanMinister Bulkan granted approval for the Gafoors Townhouses scheme on September 26.It was on October 12 that the CH&PA dismantled about two dozen structures on the Government reserves in Sophia, but the process was halted after much opposition and repeated pleas of the squatters who said they were not given official notice of the removal exercise.Representatives of the Housing Authority stated that squatting was impeding progress in the community of Sophia and as such, a task force was set up to address the issue.On October 23, the Housing Authority announced that some 266 notices were given to the reserve squatters that they must remove their structures by January 30, 2018.Many problems have surrounded the relocations of squatters. During last month, residents of Mocha Arcadia vented their frustrations against Government’s plans to relocate more than 40 families from Broad Street, Georgetown to Barnwell, Mocha, East Bank Demerara (EBD).One of the duplex homes at Perseverance , East Bank, DemeraraThis Government has long said that there was not enough space to fulfill the demand for housing and has moved to establish townhouses, duplexes, condominiums along with single units. At the “Housing Solutions 2017 and Beyond” expo at Perseverance, EBD, Guyanese were introduced to 25 such housing units, which were constructed for the four-day exhibition. …area will be known as “Gafoors Townhouses” scheme Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedLow income housing for public servants in 2017October 4, 2016In “Local News”20 Broad St. squatters get Food For The Poor houses at ProspectMarch 16, 2019In “latest news”Govt’s new housing plan lacks “proper study” – AliNovember 24, 2016In “Local News” read more

Arsenic management in sulphide concentrates

first_imgFlowsheet design and processing for a sulphide ore are driven by sulphur, iron and impurity management. As high grade feedstocks become depleted, arsenic bearing concentrates will become a more predominant feedstock. For existing copper producers, arsenic management is a key aspect of business management as arsenic impurity levels rise. Xstrata Process Support (XPS) employs an integrated arsenic management program. The key components of the program include:Knowledge of process mineralogy as a means to mill optimisation in order to minimise arsenic- bearing minerals reporting to the non-ferrous metal sulphide concentrateFlowsheet design: Designing specific arsenic removal steps using leaching, roasting or smelting steps depending on the mineralogy of the concentrateEnvironmental Management: Techniques for stabilisation of arsenic-bearing process residues via appropriate hydrometallurgical or pyrometallurgical meansTechno-economic evaluationIndustrial hygiene aspects of arsenic in smelting and refining.In a recent project Consolidated Professor Mines Ltd (CPML) contracted XPS to simultaneously define viable pyrometallurgical treatment options to remove arsenic from its cobaltite concentrate, maximise recovery of cobalt and silver and develop environmentally sound solutions to safely dispose the arsenic.XPS reports that CPML has expressed satisfaction with the progress on this exciting and ground-breaking work program, which takes economic viability into account.Due diligence, engineering process design/review, mineralogical modification (e.g. roasting) and other metallurgical test work involving arsenic has also been performed for copper producers inside and outside Xstrata.last_img read more

Jailbroken iPad reveals Radio Buy buttons could reveal plans for streaming music

first_imgYesterday, hacker group evad3rs released an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1, finally freeing iDevice operating systems from the limiting chains of Big Apple. The jailbreak is fairly easy to apply, and only takes a few minutes. After the jailbreak spread around and people had time to play with their newly liberated operating system, a potentially new, seemingly unused feature was unearthed. Spotted over at 9to5Mac, a new radio button labeled as “buy” was discovered in the iPad Music app.Using i-Funbox, a file manager and browser for iOS, some buttons appear (the green icon seen in the above image toward the bottom left) with an icon that depicts a radio tower emanating radio waves from the top. The iPad Music app doesn’t currently have radio functions, so the existence of these icons could mean that radio functionality is in the iPad’s future. However, 9to5Mac noticed that the radio buttons are labeled with the word “buy” in the filenames, which could point to Apple planning some sort of premium radio service.Now, in 2013, a “radio” service on a mobile device usually isn’t just standard AM and FM stations featuring local sports or Howard Stern, but rather a service like Spotify or Pandora — something more like intelligent playlists. So, these “radio buy” buttons could point toward Apple’s own music streaming service, something that wouldn’t be too surprising considering Apple has always had an affinity toward music (the iPod, iTunes, the failed Ping experiment, etc.), and c’mon, do you know anyone who doesn’t use Spotify or Pandora at this point?In October of last year, we learned that Apple was planning their own music streaming service, set to release in Q1 of this year. Now, with these radio buttons surfacing, it would seem that report’s “early 2013” prediction could hold some weight.last_img read more

Yearning for the day an early detection test for ovarian cancer is

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Ovarian cancer is a devastating health burden, affecting more than 240,000 women each year, of whom more than 150,000 die worldwide.The ovarian cancer developed far too quickly. She was diagnosed too late.Dubbed ‘the silent killer’, even though it counts for only 4.5 per cent of all female cancers, the disease has a high mortality rate of over 70 per cent, attributed to late diagnosis and ineffective therapy.While cervical and breast cancer can be diagnosed by Pap smear and mammography respectively even at the beginning of cancerous changes, there is no effective screening for ovarian cancer.The lack of an early detection test sees most women present with an advanced and incurable disease, which is exactly how Irene Stavrakakis lost her mother in 2013.After an ultrasound in September 2008 where no signs of cancer we found, Stavrakakis’ mother returned to her normal daily routine ignoring her symptoms, which she attributed to food intolerance and hormonal changes.Not more than three months later, in December 2008, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer but by this point, her disease had already developed to Stage 3. “The ovarian cancer developed far too quickly. She was diagnosed too late,” says Stavrakakis. “If we had more accurate measurements to detect my mother’s cancer in September, it wouldn’t have been too late in December.”Being an ambassador for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF), Mrs Stavrakakis displays her love and support for families who are touched by this disease and wants to raise awareness of the OCRF’s research and work towards developing an early detection test that will save women’s lives, using her own personal experiences as a springboard.“Without an early detection screening,” she stresses, “more women are going to have their lives cut by this silent killer, robbing people of their mothers, sisters, partners, grandmothers and friends. Survival rates will improve with an early detection test.”Having been deeply affected personally by this disease, Stavrakakis has a vested interest in supporting the work of the organisation and yearns for the day such a test is developed. “The OCRF is working towards saving women’s lives and people need to know that,” she says.“I have witnessed every moment of my mother’s suffering, every stage of the disease. It’s a brutal cancer.”Stavrakakis has, since her mother’s passing, hosted fundraisers at her café in Richmond to raise awareness and funds for the OCRF, which relies solely on the financial support of corporate Australia and the broader community.The OCRF, founded in May 2000 by gynaecological oncologist, chairman/associate professor Thomas Jobling and businesswoman CEO Liz Heliotis, is Australia’s leading independent body dedicated to national ovarian cancer research and to improving the survival of women affected by it. The initiative was instigated by Greek Australian Heliotis, who at the time had started losing friends and colleagues to cancer in all forms in their 20s and early 30s. Rather than simply remaining devastated and appalled, Heliotis chose to educate herself on the various types of cancers. It was during her investigation of the gynaecological cancers that she discovered ovarian cancer was both the leading cause of death and the only cancer without an early detection test. She became committed to galvanising her vast business network, to set up a foundation for research and early detection. Since the foundation’s inception in 2000, Heliotis has relished the opportunity to work alongside like minded partners and stakeholders who bring their commitment and talent to the frontline and are the forerunners of proactive changed future outcomes for global health. Professor Martin K. Oehler, director of gynaecological oncology at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and senior research associate for the OCRF, is one of them.“Despite advances in surgery and chemotherapies, no substantial improvement in ovarian cancer survival has been observed over the last two decades,” he says.“The key to ovarian cancer survival lies in the development of better diagnostic methods; if diagnosed early, over 90 per cent of ovarian cancer patients can survive beyond five years compared with only 20-30 per cent when diagnosed at a late stage.”Interest in early detection as a method of reducing mortality is based on the knowledge that certain blood markers can be associated with ovarian cancer, in particular the blood marker CA125. Although effective at identifying 90 per cent of patients with ovarian cancers that have metastasised, CA125 is only elevated in 50 per cent of patients with organ-confined stage I ovarian cancer. Due to its deficiencies, CA125 (still considered the gold-standard ovarian cancer blood marker) has been combined with other screening methods such as pelvic ultrasound to improve the accuracy of ovarian cancer detection. “Due to the lack of an accurate ovarian cancer blood test intensive research has therefore been ongoing over the last decades to identify new sensitive tumour markers,” Professor Oehler says, adding that there are several profound difficulties associated with traditional biomarker discovery focused on blood markers. “For example, there are quantitative obstacles in early-stage cancer when the tumour is very small and therefore only very small quantities of the target marker are produced and secreted into the blood stream. There are also qualitative issues as the markers in many cases are often masked by the complexity of blood. Consequently, biomarkers remained undetectable for many years due to technological limitations.”As the professor further explains, through recent, detailed analysis of the ovarian cancer genome, the research community has gained a better understanding of the heterogeneity of ovarian cancer which is not a single disease, but rather a group of cancers with different genetic makeup and properties. “While, in the past, all patients with ‘ovarian cancer’ received similar treatment, the knowledge of specific ovarian cancer subgroups will allow the development of more specific targeted therapeutics based on the molecular profile of each patient’s cancer. “This personalised treatment will be more effective than current therapies and ultimately lead to improved survival of affected women,” Professor Oehler emphasises.New insights into the origin and evolution of ovarian cancer have shown that a large majority of ovarian cancers are probably originating from the Fallopian tube. “Cancer precursor lesions have been identified in the Fallopian tube – so called STICS – which has revolutionised our understanding about ovarian cancer,” he says.“Different approaches to identify and retrieve precancerous Fallopian tube cells from women who might be at risk of developing ovarian cancer, for example through cervical Pap smears, are now under evaluation and could potentially be the basis of a totally new approach to early ovarian cancer detection.” The need to support scientific endeavours into this insidious disease is pivotal, as without early detection, awareness in isolation will not save a life.“Without at least one healthy ovary, a child will not be born. Research is the answer.”AWARENESS OF SYMPTOMS Early cancer of the ovaries is often asymptomatic and when ovarian cancer causes symptoms, they tend to be signs that are very commonly associated with other health problems. So if a woman (especially 50 or over) reports having any of the following symptoms on a persistent or frequent basis, they should consult their GP: – Abdominal bloating – Feeling full and/or loss of appetite – Pelvic and/or abdominal pain – Increased urinary urgency and/or frequencyIf you wish to find out more about ovarian cancer and/or donate to OCRF, go to or call 1300 OVARIAN.last_img read more

Our Favorite TV Superheroes Ranked

first_imgStay on target If you’re a comic book fan, now is a really great time to be watching TV. There are more superheroes on the airwaves (and the cable wires, and the streaming services) than at any time in history. Back in the day, we were lucky to get the corny-ass Lou Ferrigno Hulk or Swamp Thing: The Series, and the idea of having more than one superhero show to choose from was absurd. But with the success of Marvel’s movies, comic books are now big business, easily exploitable in multiple media. Today’s TV lineup features literally dozens of shows about superheroes.What follows is our 100% objective and accurate ranking of all the heroes on television right now. We stuck to shows that are currently on the airwaves, because going all the way back to 1952’s Adventures of Superman would make this feature way too ungainly to read. Some of our placements might rankle you, but feel free to argue it out in the comments. That’s what they’re there for.16. Iron FistDanny Rand is certainly a character who you could wrap a solid series around – a scion of wealth raised in a hidden city and gifted with incredible martial arts prowess and the ability to focus his chi and punch through solid metal. Unfortunately, Netflix’s take on him was flawed from the start. Poor pacing, an unconvincing lead in Finn Jones, and most damning of all fight scenes that just didn’t look good or deliver any impact made this the worst of Netflix’s pre-Defenders quartet. An 18% rating on Rotten Tomatoes bears this hypothesis out. The network ordered a second season, so hopefully they’ll be able to course correct a little bit.15. InhumansThe biggest problem in translating comics to live action is capturing the wild and crazy ideas that work so well on the page. Case in point: the Inhumans are one of Jack Kirby’s most visually fascinating creations, a race of genetically modified beings who are all different. ABC’s series follows the Royal Family in exile as they flee to Hawaii after a coup in Attilan, but the lack of a special effects budget coupled with a dull storyline and even worse soap operatics made this one dead on arrival. It’s just not fun to watch, and the ratings bore that out as viewers fled in droves. Shame, because there are certainly interesting stories to be told with these characters.14. Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.This show got a lot of ballyhoo when it debuted as a TV tie-in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it’s never really found its footing, and even at best it’s disposable. The biggest complaint about the first season is that it didn’t seem like a superhero show at all, but rather a mediocre X-Files knockoff with a bunch of new characters viewers had no connection to. The introduction of the Inhumans and more elements from the comics helped matters, but the show is often uneven. The fifth season just wrapped up, and ABC still hasn’t committed to a sixth.13. Legends Of TomorrowThe CW’s goofiest superhero program is sometimes also its most fun, dipping deep into the snuff that is DC’s eternally complicated multiversal timeline. Time Master Rip Hunter recruits a motley crew of heroes and villains to protect the future from catastrophe, which leads to a lot of one-and-done episodes where the team travels to a famous historical event. It’s sort of like Quantum Leap with spandex. That means that on a show-by-show basis it can be frustratingly uneven. The highs are fun and impressive, but the lows will make you wonder why you even bother watching it.12. The FlashCW’s second superhero show hit the ground running as a backdoor pilot on Arrow, and The Flash is the perfect superhero junk food: it’s entertaining while you’re watching it but leaves you unsatisfied at the end of the episode. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, and the show has plenty to recommend it – the rapport between the lead actors is fun, the dedication the showrunners have to digging through the DC universe and the Flash’s legendary rogues’ gallery is solid, and episodes are properly brisk. On the downside, multiple time travel and alternate universe shenanigans kind of suck any dramatic weight out of Barry’s heroics, but if you don’t think about it a lot you’ll have a good time.11. Black LightningYou may have noticed that all of the CW’s DC universe shows are sort of clumped together in the middle of this list. That’s because they belong there. None of them have done anything truly exceptional with the format, but at least Black Lightning is trying. Not a part of the overarching Arrowverse, it follows Jefferson Pierce, who hung up his superheroic identity years ago to settle down and raise a family. When his kids get pulled into gang violence, he has to go back on the promise he made and take up the cowl once more. Black Lightning works because it’s not caught up in the crossover madness of the other CW shows, instead of slowing down and taking the time to really explore its characters and relationships.10. ArrowThe show that started it all for the CW, Arrow seemed like a longshot at best when it premiered. Taking one of DC’s most dependable C-listers in Green Arrow and reinventing him for the 21st century, Oliver Queen is a spoiled Starling City scion who is shipwrecked on a deserted island and returns five years later hardened by the experience and pledges to clean up his hometown. The show pushed the “super” part of superheroics to the backburner, portraying Oliver as deeply human and very flawed. Over the course of six seasons, it’s lost the plot a little bit, but the first two are still solid and the fifth one was a return to form. Now that Oliver is mayor (spoilers), it remains to be seen how much more juice they can squeeze out of the concept.9. The GiftedAttempts to bring the X-universe to television haven’t fared too well in the past, but The Gifted, which airs on Fox, has carved out a comfortable niche for itself. Created by Burn Notice‘s Matt Nix, it follows the Strucker family as they go on the lam after discovering that their two children are mutants. They link up with an underground community of other mutants, including some recognizable comics B-listers like Blink and Thunderbird. What makes The Gifted work as well as it does is its willingness to stay away from massive world-threatening epics and explore the intricacies of being different in a world that hates and fears you. Solid ratings indicate this one will probably be around for a while.8. The PunisherAfter making his debut in the second season of Daredevil, Jon Bernthal’s Punisher was swiftly spun off into his own show. The Punisher has always been one of the most morally questionable figures in the Marvel universe, with his merciless credo of death to criminals standing in stark contrast to the other heroes. The show leans in heavily to the trauma behind the character, with Frank Castle unable to rest despite murdering the crooks who killed his family. It’d be higher on this list, but it’s almost unrelentingly bleak at times. We’ll see where the upcoming second season takes the skull-shirted vigilante.7. The TickAmazon bringing back this cult favorite as part of their original streaming lineup came as a surprise, but the Tick of the 21st century is a little different than the ones fans were expecting. While the original live-action series and cartoon trafficked in gleeful surrealism, the reboot grounds things a little bit, treating its supporting cast more like real people. The titular Tick is as oblivious as ever, but the world he fights crime in is more like the real one. The first episode is a little uneven, but stick with it – by the first season finale it’s developed into something very watchable, and hopes are high for the forthcoming second season.6. RunawaysIt’s kind of hilarious that Netflix and Hulu both have their own self-contained Marvel universes. The first season of Runaways adapts one of Marvel’s most successful new creations of the 2000s, the team of teens who discover that their parents are members of a criminal group called the Pride. The show is solid and entertaining, with an expanded structure that spends more time on the parents as well. Special kudos need to be given to the FX behind the show’s resident dinosaur Old Lace – instead of CGI, the team built a huge puppet operated by six people, and practical effects are always nice. Hopefully, a second season will be forthcoming.5. Luke CageProbably the most uneven of Netflix’s Marvel series, the highs of Luke Cage – the setting, the exceptional lead performance by Mike Colter – are enough to balance out the lows, which include a pretty weak plot that spends a lot of time dithering around. The villains of the piece never quite come together – the brilliant Mahershala Ali is wasted as Copperhead simply because his schemes never really make a lot of sense. The upcoming second season will hopefully polish up some of those flaws, because we certainly want to see more of the beautifully-depicted Harlem from the first.4. SupergirlBringing DC’s Kryptonian heroes to the small screen is a tough proposition – when you have a protagonist who can do nearly anything, it stretches both the effects budget and the audience’s credulity. But Supergirl, which debuted on CBS before moving to the CW to join its Arrowverse brethren, skirts this issue with aplomb. Kara Zor-El is the Man of Steel’s cousin, sent to Earth to protect Kal as a teenager but accidentally trapped in the Phantom Zone for a quarter-century. Now she’s out and using her abilities as a superheroine. Supergirl works as well as it does because it walks the tightrope between “villain of the week” stories and an overarching narrative with confidence, folding in the greater DC universe without being dependent on continuity.3. DaredevilNobody really knew what to expect before the first of Netflix’s Marvel universe shows premiered in 2015. The success of the films had made us hopeful, but this was before the streaming service really kicked their original content initiative into high gear. But starting from the show’s striking opening credits, Daredevil delivered. Vincent D’Onofrio’s performance as the Kingpin in the first season set a highwater mark for TV villainy, as he stole nearly every scene he was in. Charlie Cox does a solid job as the blind hero, but what really made this and the other Netflix Marvel shows work is the attention to the New York City that surrounded them – it’s a character in itself.2. Jessica JonesIt came as a surprise to basically everyone, but Jessica Jones is far and away the best of Netflix’s Marvel shows. There are many reasons why, but first and foremost is Krysten Ritter’s performance as the former superheroine turned private detective. Jessica’s world is so well crafted, and the show does such a potent job giving her the space she needs to work through her trauma, that it perfects the tightrope walk where the other shows fail. Both seasons of Jessica Jones capture that essential Marvel magic of a world just like our own, where heroes and villains deal with problems beyond punch-outs.1. LegionFar and away the most inventive superhero show on the airwaves, Noah Hawley’s FX drama – wrapping up its second season – takes an obscure X-Men supporting character and creates a psychedelic headspace around him unlike anything else. David Haller is the son of the world’s most powerful psychic, but his myriad mental powers are too much for one mind to handle. Afflicted with schizophrenia, David has to put the pieces of his life together while contending with the efforts of the malevolent Amahl Farouk, a psychic parasite who wants to use him for his own ends. Any description of this show in mere words fails to capture what makes it so potent – it’s a vibrant visual stew that uses its source material both respectfully and with great innovation.

Old Alton Bridge – Americas Creepiest Crossing with a Demonic Legend

first_imgThe question that persists when learning about the persistent legends that cling to Old Alton Bridge could very well be…why? Why would a demonic entity haunt a rarely used country bridge in Denton, Texas? Since the answer isn’t likely to be definitively answered anytime soon, let’s settle into the story of Goatman and his favorite bridge.Less than four miles from the town of Corinth, in Denton County, there once existed the village of Alton, founded in 1848. It was not exactly a metropolis. “The only residence that existed was that of a man named W.C. Baines, who established a farmstead long before the designation of the new county seat,” according to the site legendsofamerica.A drone shot from above Old Alton Bridge – Goatman’s Bridge – showing the span over the waterway and a single man laying on the bridge for reference. Photo by Pixelsyndicate CC BY-SA 4.0The site of the town shifted over and by the 1850s it boasted a number of homes, a blacksmith shop, three stores, a school, saloon, hotel, two doctors, and a few lawyers. The Hickory Creek Baptist Church was built in 1855.But when the county seat moved farther away, Alton petered out again. Nonetheless, in 1884 an iron bridge was built over Hickory Creek on Copper Canyon Road, south of the old townsite. Built by the King Bridge Company of Cleveland, Ohio, the 145-foot-long bridge would serve until 2001, when it was replaced by a modern, shiny concrete-and-steel bridge and a new road. It was closed to car traffic and is open only to pedestrians today.Signage for Old Alton bridge. Photo by Ron CC BY 2.0And the Goatman. Don’t forget him. The first time someone reported something strange on Old Alton Bridge was 1938.“A number of strange things have reportedly occurred on and around the bridge,” according to legendsofamerica. “Many believe that the Goatman haunts the overpass and the nearby woods. The tale continues that when travelers crossed the bridge at night with their headlights off, they would meet the Goatman on the other side. These tales are obviously old, as the bridge has been closed to vehicle traffic since 2001.”Alton Bridge. Photo by Renelibrary – CC BY-SA 3.0Supposedly numerous abandoned cars that have been found near Old Alton Bridge, their owners strangely missing.“Others report seeing a ghostly man herding goats over the bridge, while others say they have seen an apparition staring at them, holding a goat head under each arm. Stranger stories even include people having seen a creature that resembles a half-goat, half-man.”Old Alton bridge. Photo by Ron CC BY 2.0The stories have grown so persistent that TV crews have showed up, including one from “Buzzfeed” and another from “Ghost Adventures” on the Travel Channel.The curious come to hear the noises. People say they’ve heard horses’ hoof beats on the bridge, “splashing in the creek below, maniacal laughter, and inhuman like growling coming from the surrounding woods.”The legend keeps growing, Texas sources say. The Old Alton Bridge made the Dallas Observer‘s 2015 list of “10 Stops to Make on a Creepy Tour of Dallas.”The Dallas Observer reports, “One theory is that Goatman is the spirit of a goat farmer who was lynched by the KKK near the Old Alton Bridge. Another story is that satanists performed rituals on the bridge, opening a gateway to another realm.”Sign from the seating area. Photo by Ron CC BY 2.0The trouble with these sources is that there is no historical record of such a lynching.The travel site trailsofdentoncounty says, “While the true history of the bridge is interesting, it has also gained a reputation as a haunted place for as long as local residents can remember, always being the spot that kids would flock to on Halloween night in hopes of capturing a glimpse of a ghost who traversed the area late at night. The legend says that if you go to the bridge and honk your car horn twice at midnight, the ghost’s fiery red eyes will appear on the bridge.”Old Alton Bridge. Photo by Renelibrary – CC BY-SA 3.0Another Texas blog elaborates on the possible terrors to be experienced: “Local legend says if you knock on the steel bridge three times at midnight, or perhaps turn off your car lights and honk three times in summons, then you dare a visitation from the vengeful Goatman that’s preceded by the stench of decaying flesh. Numerous reports tell of unholy glowing eyes that burn red from the darkness, eerie glimpses of a large snarling Goat-headed man-beast stomping in the wooded shadows, or a frightening apparition of a maniacal Satyr carrying the heads of goats or humans in his hands.”Read another story from us: Investors pay over $1 million for California ghost town with a dark pastLet it be said that when the cameras were rolling for the TV crews, the Goatman decided not to growl, glow, stomp, or appear near Old Alton Bridge carrying a head. But the legend shows no evidence of fading away.Nancy Bilyeau, a former staff editor at Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and InStyle, has written a trilogy of historical thrillers for Touchstone Books.

For the fifth consecutive year, Costa Rica’s JR Blues Band will present a special memorial concert. This year’s special guests include Manuel Obregón, Carlos Dominguez, Isidor Asch, and Emmanuel Sotela.Vaughan started playing the guitar at the age of 10, inspired by his older brother Jimmie. While he never learned to read sheet music, he had an exceptional ear and learned to play blues. He had a powerful driving style that earned him comparisons with the great Jimi Hendrix.In 1975, Stevie and some other guys formed the group Double Trouble, which drew its name from an Otis Rush song. With Vaughan on lead vocals, the group’s popularity spread around the whole country, eventually getting the attention of Mick Jagger, who invited them to play at a party in New York, and then David Bowie , who asked Vaughan to play with him on his album “Let’s Dance.” Later on, the band signed to a record with Epic, where they began working with legendary musician and producer John Hammond. Courtesy of Stevie Ray VaughanIn 1984, the National Blues Foundation Awards named Vaughan Entertainer of the Year and Blues Instrumentalist of the year, making him the first white musician ever to receive both honors; in 1989, the group’s fourth studio album won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Recording.On August 26, 1990, Double Trouble played in East Troy in Wisconsin. Just after midnight, having wrapped up the show, Stevie took a helicopter to Chicago. Amidst dense fog, the helicopter crashed into a hilly field just minutes after take-off, and everyone on board died. However, Vaughan’s legacy continues to echo throughout the world – including today in Barrio Amón. tribute concert will be held today, August 27, at Amón Solar (El Sótano) in Barrio Amón, at 8 p.m. ₡3,000 ($6).

(AP Photo/David Zalubowski, File) center_img NORRISTOWN, Pa. – Bill Cosby’s retrial took a far more combative turn Tuesday than the first go-round, as his lawyers launched a scathing attack on his accuser and prosecutors put the first in a parade of women on the stand to portray the comedian as a sexual predator.Heidi Thomas, who was a 24-year-old aspiring actress in 1984 when she met Cosby in Reno, Nevada, testified he knocked her out with a potent glass of wine and forced her to perform oral sex.Prosecutors have lined up five accusers in all to make the case that the TV star, once revered as America’s Dad, made a habit of drugging and assaulting women well before he was charged with violating Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.Cosby’s lawyer urged jurors to ignore the other accusers — calling them irrelevant to this case — but saved most of his fire for Constand, branding her a “con artist” who tried to frame the comedian for the money.Tom Mesereau, delivering his opening statement a day after prosecutors took their turn, said Constand “hit the jackpot” when Cosby paid her $3.4 million over a decade ago to settle her lawsuit against him.“What did she want from Bill Cosby?” Mesereau said. “You already know the answer: money, money and lots more money.”His attack on Constand was a striking departure from the more subdued tone that Cosby’s previous lawyer took at the first trial, which ended in a hung jury last spring.It was also a likely glimpse of what’s to come when the former Temple University basketball administrator takes the stand to say Cosby made her woozy with pills and then penetrated her with his fingers.Cosby, 80, is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault, each punishable by up to 10 years in prison.As they began building their case against Cosby, prosecutors chose Thomas, now a Colorado music teacher, as their first substantive witness.Thomas, who said her agent had arranged for Cosby to give her acting tips, told the jury that she took a sip of white wine that Cosby gave her as they rehearsed a scene in which she was portraying a drunken woman. Thomas said her next memory was waking up with Cosby forcing himself on her.She said she remembered thinking she felt sick and wondering, “How did I get here?”Thomas testified she blamed herself for what happened, thinking she must have said or done something that led Cosby to believe she would be open to his advances. She never told her agent or her parents about the alleged assault.“I was pretty sure whatever I did was my fault,” Thomas testified, adding: “I was just going to move on. And I did.”Thomas, who went public with her allegations in 2015, has teamed with other Cosby accusers to lobby for longer statutes of limitations for sex crimes, including a successful effort to double Colorado’s to 20 years.Under cross-examination, Thomas testified that she chronicled her trip to Reno in a scrapbook and recorded a cassette tape at the home where she had the encounter with Cosby. She said she wanted to recount the trip for her mother and agent but destroyed it years later after seeing a psychiatrist.It made no mention of the alleged assault, Thomas said, because she had planned to give it to her mom.Defence attorney Kathleen Bliss is to continue questioning Thomas on Wednesday.Earlier Tuesday, Mesereau told the jury that Constand was in deep financial trouble and set out to exploit her relationship with Cosby.Constand stiffed roommates on utility bills, racked up big credit card bills and operated a Ponzi scheme while running women’s basketball operations at Temple, where Cosby was an alumnus and trustee, Mesereau said.He said Constand went to Cosby’s home at least a half-dozen times and sneaked into bed with him at a Connecticut casino, winning his trust so she could set him up later, he said.Constand outlined her scheme to a Temple colleague, Marguerite Jackson, Mesereau said. The defence plans to call Jackson as a witness, and Mesereau said she will testify that Constand mused about setting up a celebrity so she could sue and get money.“A con artist is what you get, ladies and gentlemen of the jury,” the defence attorney said. “A con artist. And we’ll prove it.”Cosby’s legal team at his first trial wasn’t nearly as aggressive in attacking Constand, focusing instead on inconsistencies in her statements to police and arguing the pair had a romantic relationship. The jury that time was not permitted to hear about the settlement, nor was Jackson allowed to take the stand.Under no such constraints this time, the defence let loose on Constand.Mesereau also urged jurors to set aside any sympathy they might have for the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct that has toppled Harvey Weinstein, Sen. Al Franken, Matt Lauer and other powerful men in recent months.The comedian arrived at the courthouse Tuesday amid heightened security after a topless protester who appeared on several episodes of “The Cosby Show” as a child jumped a barricade on Monday and got within a few feet of Cosby as he entered the courthouse.Cosby was surrounded by five sheriff’s deputies as he walked inside Tuesday.The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and Thomas have done.___Follow Mike Sisak at more coverage visit read more

voters now say they support stricter gun control laws with 25% opposing tougher gun measures This tracks with other recent gun control polls: CNN poll released earlier this week (conducted with research firm SSRS) found that 69% favor gun control and a CBS News poll from last week (also conducted with SSRS) found that 65% favor gun control While the Morning Consult poll only dates back two years looking back at Gallup gun control polls reveals that the last time support for restricting access to firearms was this high was early in President Bill Clinton’s first term prior to the signing of both the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act and the Federal Assault Weapons Ban in 1994 Politico notes that in the two years that Morning Consult has been polling about this issue this is the highest level of support for gun control measures following a mass shooting After the Pulse nightclub shooting in 2016 that left 49 dead 58% supported stricter gun control After the 2017 shooting in Las Vegas that killed 58 64% favored stronger gun control laws The bump in support comes from Republicans Kyle Dropp co-founder and chief research officer of Morning Consult told Politico “In this week’s poll 53% of Republicans indicated they supported stricter gun laws compared to 37% [of Republicans] who said the same following the Pulse nightclub shooting in June 2016” Dropp told the publication Morning Consult also found that voters are pessimistic about Congress passing anything in the next year Thirty-two percent said there’s a “poor” chance that stricter gun control laws are passed compared to 10% who think there’s an “excellent” chance and 21% who think there’s a “good” chance In terms of specific gun control legislation 88% favor background checks for all gun sales Meanwhile 84% support blocking gun sales to people who have been convicted of violent misdemeanors and 82% believe you should need to be 21 to purchase an assault rifle Seventy-seven percent of respondents are in favor of a bump stock ban Despite these numbers Americans are still wary of going too far says the poll Forty-sic percent think protecting Americans’ right to bear arms is more

Contact us at editors@timecomPresident Donald Trump has hinted he may make yet more personnel changes after he summarily disposed of his secretary of state Rex Tillerson via Twitter AFP looks at who else is in the firing line: A general in his labyrinth A three star army general HR McMaster has appeared to be on the chopping block almost since he took up the job just over a year ago Playing referee between the Pentagon State Department CIA and other sharp-elbowed departments is fraught in any administration but McMaster has from the start lacked Trump’s support so he’s been doing the job without a whistle His tough positions on the use of military force against Iran and North Korea have made him few friends among the other generals in Trump’s inner circle — chief of staff John Kelly

desire to resist firing back over Twitter after his boss’s latest broadside calling his handling of illegal wiretapping allegations "disgraceful" A faithful enforcer of key administration policies like cracking down on illegal immigration and appointing conservative judges Trump is said nevertheless to hold the septuagenarian in low-esteem referring to him privately as "Mr Magoo" — a doddering
