Security guard’s murder…to stand trial for accessoryThe woman, who was implicated in the death of a Rose Hall security guard along with her teenage son and another teen, has been freed of the murder but has been committed to stand trial in the High Court for accessory to murder after the fact, in the Berbice Assizes.Lalita Ballers of Section E, Port Mourant, Berbice, was acquitted of the murder charge after Defence Attorney Sasha Roberts presented a no case submission at the end of the Preliminary Inquiry at the Albion Magistrate’s Court.Magistrate Renita Singh ruled that there was no evidence to prove that Ballers was at the crime scene when the act was committed. The Magistrate said there was also no evidence to prove that Ballers was a part of the planning of the crime.She however said Ballers knew that the murder was committed, and she assisted her son to escape and avoid capture. Magistrate Singh said the court found that a Prima Facie was made out for Ballers as it relates to being an accessory to murder.On March 31, 2018, the body of Munisperen Iyasammy Monien was discovered in a pool of blood in a store room at Sukhsram General Store at Lot 13 Public Road, Rose Hall.The 53-year-old provided security services for the store, which sells agricultural products, working a 12-hour shift.Following the discovery of the body, it was also discovered that money which was being kept in the store was missing.It was also reported that when the store was closed on March 30, 2018, $1.5 million was locked in a draw.Police later arrested all of the employees following a theory that the robbery/murder was an inside job.Carlos Ballers, 19, of Williamsburg; and Yuvraj Singh, 17, of Guava Bush, Albion Front, were the prime suspects and have since been charged for the murder.Ballers took them to a house where his mother lives. The woman reportedly went to a section of the yard and dug up some money which was buried in the yard.Her son also reportedly showed the investigators where he had hidden the murder weapon.
A Berbice mother is blaming the public health sector for the death of her five-year-old son, who took his last breath on Monday after suffering from an undiagnosed illness.Reports are that the toddler died at the New Amsterdam Hospital hours after he was transferred there from the Skeldon Hospital.Davitry Seepaul, called ‘Renita,’ of Number 47 Village Corentyne, told this publication that her son, Marlon Chappelle, who celebrated his fifth birthday last Tuesday, fell ill moments after his graduation two Fridays ago, and was taken to the Skeldon Hospital for treatment.There, Seepaul said, he was given an injection and some medication; but she was forced to take her son back to the Skeldon Hospital on Saturday evening, after he continued to have a high fever and complained of feeling unwell.“Last week Sunday, when we go back to the hospital, they gave him two injections, saline, oxygen, and they had him throughout the night, till around 2 O’clock in the morning,” she explained.He was subsequently transferred to the New Amsterdam Hospital, and after being medically examined there, arrangements were made to transfer him to the Georgetown Public Hospital.At the time, she said, he was in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), and she gave the go-ahead for the transfer to take place.“At the New Amsterdam Hospital, they told me that the baby have to go to Georgetown, and asked me if I would sign up for him to go. I said, ‘Yes’, because I am the mother and I will do anything to make him feel better. I asked them if anybody else could go with me, and they said, ‘No, only the mother’. I was ready to go, and waited until night, and then realised that they weren’t going anymore…. My cousin’s wife was with me, and they called her inside, when she come out back, I asked her what happened, and she just kept staring at me”, the distraught woman explained.It was after then that the woman was told her son was dead. The doctors at the medical facility told her that her son had died at home, and that they were not going ahead with the post-mortem. The frustrated mother appeals for answers, and more so, wants to know what illness her son had.“That is what she trying to tell me, that baby dead at home. If baby die at home, how baby get oxygen, saline, and take the injection and get transferred from Skeldon with the ambulance?” she questioned.Director of Regional Health Services, Jevaughn Stephens, when contacted, related that the mother had made a report to the Police, accusing the hospital for her son’s death. In light of this development, he explained, the pathologist cannot perform the autopsy. He added that since the matter is now in the hands of the Police, only an authorised pathologist can perform the post-mortem examination.Arrangements are being made to have the autopsy done on Wednesday.

The Irish government has proposed new levies on plastic bags, disposable cups and waste disposal.The Republic of Ireland Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment Richard Bruton confirmed the measures.He said they were aimed at encouraging more sustainable behaviour and were a key part of the Government’s Climate Action Plan. Under the proposals announced today (Weds), the existing plastic bag levy will increase from the current rate of 22c to 25c.It will also be extended to include medium weight plastic bags, which are often referred to as a ‘bag for life’.A waste recovery levy of €5 a tonne would apply to the three key waste recovery options: landfill, incineration and export.An increase of the landfill levy by €5 per tonne to €80 per tonne has also been proposed. Perhaps, most controversial of all is a new levy on disposable cups.The rate is to be determined following market research, but likely to be 10c, 15c or 25c, according to the department.The new and increased levies will be in place either next year or in 2021.Disposable cups and plastic bags levies proposed was last modified: November 6th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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)

By Phindi MadunaBrand South Africa, through its Play Your Part initiative, has partnered with South African award winning artist, Khabonina Qubeka, on the #Mandela100Yogathon tour. The yogathon is an international tour in honour of the centenary of the birth of the late former President, Nelson Mandela.Mandela believed that exercise is a key to physical health and peace of mind. He often talked about how exercise and meditation helped him during his term of imprisonment.Through this tour, Khabonina hopes to spread the message of the importance of health and fitness – especially for children. Khabonina will showcase how the practice of yoga has changed her life and she uses the practice of yoga to enrich the lives of others. In her engagement with the youth, she will reflect on some of Mandela’s core values that can help build a better world. Khabonina believes that Mandela would have loved the concept of bringing the world together through an important and meaningful initiative such as this.The tour started at the Park Lane, a Pullman Hotel in Hong Kong on 27 March 2018. This leg of the tour featured renowned Yoga Guru, YogaRaj who is a three time Guinness World Record holder for the longest yoga marathon.While in Hong Kong, Khabonina also conducted a workshop at the City University where she shared her personal journey of the practice yoga with students. The City University of Hong Kong presented Khabonina with a Professional Creative of the World Award for her contribution to the yoga fraternity worldwide.Following this successful launch, Khabonina will take the #Mandela100Yogathon tour to Botswana on 27 to 29 April 2018; Tanzania from 21 to 28 June 2018; and South Africa from 18 to 26 July 2018, where she will work with various schools and community organisations to further impart her knowledge of the importance of living a healthy and active lifestyle.For more information on the tour and how you can play your part in supporting Khabonina’s efforts, follow @Khabonina_Q and #Mandela100Yogathon on Twitter and Instagram.

Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Guest author Cameron Yuill is CEO of AdGent Digital, a digital media and technology company.The reason News Corp. has shut down The Daily, its iPad-only newspaper, is due to a simple math problem: not enough subscribers to cover the cost of production and distribution. The Daily had reportedly 100,000 subscribers at $40 per year which, by my math is only $4 million annually.The mistake News Corp. made was hiring (expensive) editorial, journalists and technologists to build and provide content for the newspaper. On top that cost structure, The Daily had to pay Apple 30 cents on the dollar to distribute the newspaper via iTunes. No doubt overhead was way in excess of income.Murdoch obviously made the decision that The Daily was not growing fast enough to ever have a chance of covering its costs, let alone making a profit. So The Daily bites the dust. Fair enough.But what could have News Corp. done that might have had some chance of surviving or at least have been a less costly experiment?Syndication Versus CreationAcross the News Corp. portfolio, the company is producing a ton of content that could have been syndicated to The Daily. The team to run the iPad-only newspaper could have been a whole lot smaller (and less expensive) which would have given it a chance of, at least, covering its costs.There is no guarantee that consumers would have ultimately paid for the iPad-only newspaper but with NewsCorp’s marketing muscle it might have been able to attract a respectable number of subscribers.And herein lies another problem that The Daily faced. In the offline world there is no way you can launch a new newspaper, put it in the distribution channel and expect customers to find it. Media companies spend tens of millions of dollars to launch a new paper. You have touts lining up on the streets to give you free copies and paid media to support a launch. In the offline world that is a defined market: distribution is in one city. A single market that is easy to cover.How To Find Subscribers?Online, it can be a far harder proposition to find customers. The market for The Daily is global. To find subscribers can be a costly exercise. And because the market is global, content has to be more generic so that is appeals to all potential readers. Offline, because distribution is usually limited to one city, content is tailored to local tastes. Online this would have been impossible as there are simply too many markets to cater for and the cost of providing such content would have been stratospheric.Faced with a low subscriber base, a paper that by definition had to offer broad generic content and a math problem that was getting worse, News Corp. made the only sensible decision it could. The Daily is no more.Kudos must go to Murdoch for sticking with it as long as he did. It was a worthy experiment in a rapidly transforming distribution environment.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.
