The High Court trial of Lawrence Wayne, a licensed firearm holder who shot dead a suspected bandit at Light and Fifth Streets, Alberttown, Georgetown in August 2014 is nearing its conclusion and his innocence or guilt will soon be determined.On Monday, the prosecution closed its case, which contended that Wayne pursued and shot Dexter Lindo after an alleged robbery was carried out on his business place, Wayne Beverage Paradise, at Merriman Mall.Reports are Lindo was shot three times in the vicinity of a shop and died just days later while a patient at the Dr Balwant Singh Hospital.Accused: Lawrence WayneWayne, who briefly addressed the court in an unsworn statement in the jury’s presence on Monday, confirmed what he told Police in an ordinary statement, highlighting events that led to the shooting.“I rely on the statement that I gave to the Police,” the accused told presiding Judge, Justice Jo-Ann Barlow. The Judge, thereafter announced, that closing addresses from both the prosecution and defence would be heard by the jury today. In the coming hours, Justice Barlow will sum up the case before the 12-member jury can deliberate and return a verdict. A no-case submission on behalf of the defence was overruled earlier in the trial.According to the statement the murder accused had given Police, on the day in question, he shot the now deceased man during a confrontation, which had occurred after a robbery was carried out on his business place.According to the accused’s version of events, he received a phone call from someone that armed men had entered and robbed his stall at the Merriman Mall. He later told Police that as he arrived at the scene, the men were fleeing into a waiting vehicle. Police were also told that he pursued the men in his own vehicle and met up with them at Light and Fifth Streets, Alberttown. It was there that he confronted one of the men and told him to “freeze!”The accused also alleged that the suspected bandit pulled a gun from his waist, but he opened fire which led to Lindo being shot. Lindo, then 26, had resided at Shell Road, Kitty, Georgetown. Police had recovered an unlicensed .32 Beretta Pistol, with four matching rounds, which was reportedly in the possession of Lindo at the time of the confrontation with Wayne. About 20 witnesses testified during the trial.Wayne is represented by Attorneys Stanley Moore and Maxwell McKay while the State’s case is presented by Prosecutors Shawnette Austin, Tamica Clarke, and Mandell Moore.

The January 5 article alarmed many women, who questioned whether their implants—known to be more than 99% effective in preventing pregnancy—are actually working.The reports of unplanned pregnancies among Implanon users elicited both substantial interest and dismay. Contraceptive failure, particularly with highly effective methods such as implants, intrauterine devices (IUDs), female sterilization, and vasectomy, is rare and unexpected. But no method, even sterilization, is 100% effective. When properly inserted, however, the success rate of Implanon ® and other hormonal implants (Jadelle®) has been proven to be greater than 99%—far exceeding the effectiveness of either oral contraceptive pills or condoms.While the investigation in the United Kingdom is still ongoing, it appears that the errors likely occurred months or years before—at the clinic where health practitioners may have improperly inserted the device. If it is the case that provider error is responsible (either clients were already pregnant at the time of insertion or the device was improperly inserted), these unfortunate events only reinforce the critical importance of quality training for health professionals tasked with inserting implants or other contraceptive devices. Clinics providing implants must maintain robust training standards and curricula for correctly inserting and removing implants to ensure that clients, whether in London or Lomé, receive the highest quality of care possible.But regardless of the investigation’s outcome, the fact remains that Implanon is a very safe, effective, and popular method of contraception. Millions of women choose implants because they are highly effective and easy to use. Like other long-acting contraceptive methods (e.g. IUDs), Implanon is quickly reversible with prompt return to fertility and is very convenient in that it doesn’t require women to remember to take daily pills or to convince their partners to use condoms in order to prevent pregnancy. But it does require the skill of a well-trained health professional.Since the Guardian story was published, several health service providers have issued statements clarifying the sources of the failures and advising women on where to seek help if they are concerned about their implants. It is also very important to keep these reports in context: More than 1.3 million units of Implanon have been prescribed in the United Kingdom since 1999, and the number of failures reported to date, regardless of cause, was less than 600. Globally, Implanon is also an increasingly popular method.

iowa fans sec myth videoIowa, which is now 8-0 on the season after handling Maryland this past Saturday, is getting closer and closer to finishing the regular season undefeated and having the chance to play for a Big Ten title. Two weeks back, an SEC fan had a little fun with the idea of an undefeated Iowa, and created a spoof video to trash the Hawkeyes. Well, it looks like an Iowa supporter has responded.In the below video, an Iowa fan tells his kids about the “SEC myth” – which consists of the league controlling its own narrative. He jokes that boosters pay SEC players. There are also shots at Vanderbilt and Nebraska.The best part of all? He eats “sour grapes” near the end. It’s an appropriate response to last week’s video – even if SEC fans don’t like it.
There may be a second act for Toys R Us, the retail wonderland for children that turned out the lights at hundreds of stores for what was thought to be the final time over the summer.After joining the parade of retailers that never recovered from the recession and radical changes in the way Americans shop for toys and everything else, a group of investors is planning a comeback for Geoffrey the giraffe and his crew.The group, made up of secured lenders, said in a bankruptcy court filing Tuesday that it’s scrapping an auction for Toys R Us assets despite receiving a number of qualified bids.The group now believes that it stands a better chance of a realizing a return on its investment by potentially reviving the toy chain, rather than selling it off for parts. The group will attempt to establish a “company that maintains existing global license agreements and can invest in and create new, domestic, retail operating businesses under the Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us names.”The investors said they’ll work with potential partners to develop new ideas for stores in the U.S. and other countries “that could bring back these iconic brands in a new and re-imagined way.”Toys R Us suffocated under a staggering $5 billion debt load before liquidating its U.S. assets this year. A leveraged buyout hobbled the company and hundreds of stores were shuttered in June to the dismay of children and numerous generations of one-time children.The seeming end of Toys R Us rippled through the toy industry and beyond. When the company closed the doors at some 800 stores, more than 30,000 people lost their jobs. Less than a month later, Mattel said it would cut more than 2,200 jobs partly because of lost sales to Toys R Us.Economists were caught off guard that month by the slow growth in jobs, particularly retail, and some blamed the collapse of Toys R Us.There was a net gain of 7,000 retail jobs in July, but the overall number was weighed down by the loss of approximately 32,000 jobs in the category that includes games and toys. That figure correlates with the number of Toys R Us employees that were cut loose without severance pay.Toys R Us was overwhelmed on several fronts in the months leading up to its filing for bankruptcy protection.In addition to the debt it was saddled with by its private-equity owners, Toys R Us found itself in a battle to its seeming death with Amazon.com and other big toy sellers like Target and Walmart.The current asset holders did not go into detail about how the company, which maintained its headquarters in Wayne, New Jersey, would thrive in such an environment.
New Delhi: With an aim to thwart financial frauds, regulator Sebi has sought powers to conduct inspection of books of accounts of listed companies for contravention of any securities law and also to take direct action against the fraudsters. Besides, Sebi has proposed a heavy penalty for altering, destroying, mutilating, concealing or falsifying records and documents or other tangible objects with an intent to obstruct, impede or influence a legal investigation. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalAt present, Sebi is empowered to conduct such inspections in case of violations relating to insider trading and fraudulent or unfair trade practices. However, the regulator has now asked the government that its power to undertake inspection of books at listed companies should be for contravention of any securities laws without limiting it to violations relating to one or two regulations, a senior official said. The Sebi Act empowers the regulator to conduct inspection of any book, register or other documents and records of any listed company if it has reasonable grounds to believe that the company has been indulging in insider trading or fraudulent and unfair trade practices relating to securities markets. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostIn its new proposal, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has asked the government to broaden this power to all cases where the regulator suspects a violation of any securities law. Sebi has also proposed that any disgorgement order for recovery of illegal gains should be applicable to all joint actors, without making it conditional on the gains or averted losses of the violators. In another amendment to the Sebi Act, the regulator has sought to replace the term ‘material or non-public information’ with ‘unpublished price sensitive information’ to bring in greater consistency of legal phrases used for insider trading laws. Also, the penalty for insider trading violations is currently imposed on those dealing in securities “on the basis” of material or non-public information, which the regulator has suggested changing to “while in possession”. Regarding the additional penalty, Sebi is of the view that there is a need to create an obligation on an individual not to alter, destroy, mutilate, conceal or falsify the records to hamper investigation and therefore all such acts should be treated as ‘fraudulent’ and actionable under the securities laws. Such acts would lead to a minimum penalty of Rs 5 lakh, which may extend to Rs 10 crore or three times the amount of profit made from such an act, whichever is higher. In another proposed amendment, Sebi has said no person should employ or assist in employing any device, scheme or artifice to manipulate books of accounts or financial statements of a listed company to directly or indirectly manipulate the share price, or to hide the diversion, siphon off the funds or assets or earnings of a listed firm or a proposed-to-be-listed company. Sebi is of the view that it should be empowered to take direct action against perpetrators of financial frauds as such acts that have adverse impact on not only the shareholders of the company but also impacts the confidence of investors in the securities markets. The primary responsibility of monitoring or supervision of books of accounts of companies is with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs under the Companies Act. However, Sebi has suggested that it should also be given powers to take direct action in case of fraud committed by manipulating books of accounts or of financial statements at listed companies. Such acts typically are aimed at manipulating the share price, hiding fund diversions, misutilising the public issue proceeds or siphoning off the proceeds, assets or earnings of a listed company. The proposed amendment has been made as per a recommendation of the Fair Market Conduct Committee, constituted by the regulator. Officials said the final decision on the proposed changes would be taken only after taking into account the views of the Finance Ministry and also of the Corporate Affairs Ministry in a few cases. While the Finance Ministry is already in agreement on some proposals, there are differences in case of a few others.
Mumbai: Ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam has just lived the idiom ‘you win some, you lose some’. The All-India Congress Committee on Monday announced Nirupam’s candidature from the Mumbai North-West Lok Sabha seat, but replaced him with former Union minister Milind Deora as the Grand Old Party’s Mumbai unit chief. According to sources in the party, this was in the offing for “at least four months”. “There were complaints made about Nirupam’s style of functioning before Congress president Rahul Gandhi and also general secretary Mallikarjun Kharge. The matter was very much under consideration,” a source said. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The source also claimed that Nirupam’s removal amid poll season will not have any bearing on the prospects of the Congress in Mumbai, which has six parliamentary seats. “Rather, appointment of a fresh face (of Deora) as the city Congress chief will mean those who were not happy with Nirupam’s style of functioning and were sitting at home will be out for campaigning now,” the source added. In the 2014 election, Nirupam had faced drubbing at the hands of BJP’s Gopal Shetty in the Mumbai North constituency. Nirupam had won the seat in the 2009 general elections. The Congress had also suffered defeat in the February 2017 Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation election with Nirupam at the helm and the party could win only 31 seats, 20 less than the 2012 polls.
Former Liverpool players Joe Cole and Michael Owen are starring in a new TV advert opening up on the controversy of Football transfers.The ex-footballers appeared in an advert for phone company Huawei, who are using the transfer deadline campaign as a marketing tool for their products.The former England internationals also recruited Premier League stars to help drive the campaign of the Chinese Mobile company.Owen and Cole both discussed the process of changing phones in the manner which transfer deals are negotiated.Cole said, according to Mirror Football: Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“It’s important to not be stuck in your ways, change is good. I loved my time at West Ham , the fans were great, my teammates were brilliant, but I couldn’t turn down the move to Chelsea – a move that turned out hugely successful for me, where I won a lot of silverware.”“Much like then, the time has come for change and I’m sure my latest switch to Huawei will prove just as rewarding.’’Owen added: “I’ve made some big switches in my career, some have certainly been easier than others – leaving Liverpool definitely ruffled a few feathers!”“However, I have high hopes for my latest switch to Huawei, it’s been a lot smoother, surprisingly easy, and I’m anticipating great success. The kit is fantastic!”
Former Real Madrid forward Predrag Mijatovic believes the club still have a long way to go before they reach their usual high standardsLos Blancos have endured a disappointing start to the season, which has seen them drop to sixth in La Liga and already sack coach Julen Lopetegui.However, Tuesday night’s 2-0 Champions League win at AS Roma booked them a last-16 spot and confirmed them as Group G winners.New manager Santiago Solari’s appointment has been compared to Zinedine Zidane’s own one due to their similar backgrounds of coaching the youth teams before taking the top job.Zidane then went on to win three straight Champions Leagues before his sudden departure in May.But Mijatovic reckons that Real are still a long way from being ready to compete for a fourth successive European title.“Madrid have to improve a lot,” Mijatovic told Cadena SER.“They have not convinced me. On Tuesday they played against a team that is doing very badly in the Italian league.“I want to see how Madrid respond next Saturday against Valencia. Madrid have to win but also put on a good performance.Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“There are players like [Raphael] Varane and [Luka] Modric who have played the World Cup final and will start to feel better in January.“[But] Madrid is suffering. It’s a complicated moment and not the Madrid we’re used to seeing in recent years.“They are alive in all competitions but they have to improve and play a lot better.”Mijatovic is also confused over Isco’s lack of game time under Solari with the Spanish playmaker yet to make a start for Real since their infamous 5-1 defeat to Barcelona.“He has gone from being an indisputable selection to nothing,” Mijatovic added.“We don’t know how he is in training, if he is mentally in the right place or if he has any physical issues.“I think he’s too good not to be on the bench. Isco is a very useful player and if they know how to use him well he will offer us great football.”Mijatovic famously scored the winning goal in Real’s 1-0 Champions League final win over Juventus in 1998.
