As Police reopen the investigation into the 2008 murder of East Bank Essequibo (EBE) businessmanDead businessman: HabiboodeanHabiboodean, four persons have been arrested while law enforcement continues the search for a fifth suspect, Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum confirmed.Superintendent Blanhum said that investigators were now seeking the late businessman’s daughter who was a person of interest in the probe. He said despite several visits to her home, she could not have been located.However, according to Blanhum, the woman has already been blacklisted at all legal ports of entry, and would be promptly arrested if she attempted to flee the country.The Crime Chief could not say how soon charges would be laid against the suspects.Habiboodean, 77, of Ruby, EBE, died at a hospital after being badly beaten in his home on February 15, 2008.The businessman’s wife, Bibi Nazeela Habiboodean, now 50, and his former employee, Terry Lewton, 38, of Vergenoegen, EBE, were charged with the murder, but the case was subsequently dismissed owing to insufficient evidence.But investigators reopened the cold case following a breakthrough last week when one of the four men arrested for the murder of Mohamed Munir, 75, and his wife, Bibi Jamila Munir, 69, who were burnt to death in their Good Hope, EBE home said he had knowledge of Habiboodean’s death.Twenty-eight-year-old Linden Lewis, called “Bullet”, during interrogation, told investigators that he was the hit man behind Habiboodean’s murder.According to the suspect’s claims, he was hired by the businessman’s daughter who complained that his other relatives had received properties and other assets, while she had received nothing.The woman reportedly stated that she wanted her father’s fuel station, his cash in the bank, and assets in Georgetown.She reportedly promised Lewis $6 million and a house and land to kill her father.Lewis reportedly told investigators that five persons sat down and planned the elderly man’s murder.On February 15, 2008, the relative reportedly helped Lewis to gain access to Habiboodean’s house.The man said he was confronted by the businessman who asked him “What you doing here?”Lewis reportedly informed the businessman that he was sent by his (Habiboodean’s) daughter to kill him and began beating the elderly man with a piece of wood.Lewis said that he never received what was promised to him, but instead he was given $5000 “to go into the bush”.
Calls have been made for the development of three new Donegal schools to get underway without further delays. Pat the Cope Gallagher said that St Marys NS Stranorlar, Gaelscoil na gCeithre Maistrí Donegal Town and Little Angels School Letterkenny are among those in urgent need of new schools.Raising the issue in the Dail on Wednesday, Gallagher added that the current system of progressing projects through the Department of Education in order to get final sanction before building can commence is too lengthy and time-consuming, and is allowing projects to drag on for years before a final sanction is given. “I have for years, been raising these school projects within the Dáil and with various Ministers but ultimately progress has been slow to such a point that progress is difficult to quantify on an annual basis, such is how minuscule and slow the actual progress being made by these project is.“I am calling on the Minister and the Department to proceed with these projects and to minimalize the actual delays and eliminate the procrastinating on the necessary approvals and to bring each of the three projects – namely, St Marys NS Stranorlar, Gaelscoil na gCeithre Maistrí Donegal Town and Little Angels School Letterkenny to construction stage.”“There is an urgent need for these schools in their respective communities, these school buildings are so urgently needed and the onus of responsibility of delivering these schools falls on the Government.”No progress for three Donegal schools in urgent need of complete rebuilds was last modified: March 6th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:Donegal EducationPat The Cope Gallagher
Here are some tricks of living in a human body that you may not know about, because they happen automatically.The eye trick. How come the lights don’t go out when you blink? Think about that. The world should go dark, but we perceive a continuous view, even though blinking all the while. Scientists at the University of California Berkeley looked into this. In “Why the lights don’t dim when we blink,” they describe how their research “shows that the brain works extra hard to stabilize our vision despite our fluttering eyes.” Details are published in Current Biology, where you can learn about “automatic calibration of gaze direction” during blinking.Voice tricks. The human voice is phenomenally versatile. Think of all the sounds it can emit just in talking. Add singing, and the voice’s range and flexibility is truly amazing. On The Conversation, Noel Hanna offers some interesting facts. First, he shows that in Chinese, with its five tonal rules in language, a speaker can emit 840 distinct sounds, but only half of those are actually used in speaking; the range of possible words is actually 2,000 x 2,000, or “4 million possible unique words using this system of pronunciation.” Then those words are strung together in complex sentences. “And that is just one language,” he says. “Each language has its own set of different sounds, which may or may not overlap with other languages.” After some anatomy lessons and three interesting videos, including an MRI of an opera singer (worth watching), Hanna has answered many questions about the mechanics of the voice, but not how humans came into possession of such remarkable equipment.Hair power. Hair is so strong and break resistant, researchers at the University of California San Diego want to imitate it to make body armor. Here are some factoids about the material you brush or comb each day.Hair has a strength to weight ratio comparable to steel. It can be stretched up to one and a half times its original length before breaking. “We wanted to understand the mechanism behind this extraordinary property,” said Yang (Daniel) Yu, a nanoengineering Ph.D. student at UC San Diego and the first author of the study.“Nature creates a variety of interesting materials and architectures in very ingenious ways. We’re interested in understanding the correlation between the structure and the properties of biological materials to develop synthetic materials and designs — based on nature — that have better performance than existing ones,” said Marc Meyers, a professor of mechanical engineering at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering and the lead author of the study.Such a common material, yet such fascinating properties.Hair, eyes, the voice – we could go on and on, but that’s enough boggle for today. Sing while you comb your hair and blink. (Visited 38 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

Each child is wired and inspired differently. She experiences her world and makes sense of it in her own unique way. One child may learn by writing notes or making diagrams, whereas another may learn by reading aloud, through brainstorming. Let me take you through three basic learning styles so you understand your child’s primary approach. Most of us are a mix of different learning styles. However, each one has a preference for a particular modality.The visual learnerStays more focussed if she makes notes, highlights or underlines what she is reading. Remembers what the teacher wrote down on the board rather than what she said.Has picked up reading more by word recognition rather than the phonics method.Good speller, fast reader.Enjoys puzzles, art and craft, drawing, painting, dressing up.Good at fine motor skills like drawing, embroidery, beading.Prefers studying alone.Presentation is neat.You can see they learn best through visual stimulation-pictures, flow charts, diagrams, flash cards, white boards, strategic use of colours, power point presentations, DVDs, mind mapping (Read Mind Mapping for Kids by Tony Buzan, Thorsons, 2003). Make sure you focus on these.The auditory learnerGood orator, skilled at theatre.Excels in verbal expression, good at writing poetry.Learnt to read well through phonics method.Large vocabulary.Easily distracted by noise.Learns by listening and discussing.Remembers lyrics of songs.Presentation is inconsistent.They learn through verbalising, listening, brainstorming, answering questions, studying with a partner or a small group, acting as if teaching a class, audio recordings, drama, speeches, debates, stories, music in the background (for math). Keep these in mind.advertisementThe kinaesthetic learnerThinks and learns better when he/she is moving or playing with ball.Gestures a lot while speaking.Learns by doing.Can’t sit still for a long time, fidgety, squirmy.High need for movement while trying to explain something.Loves wide open spaces.Well coordinated and would generally excel in sports, outdoor activities, dance.Presentation is untidy.Kinaesthetic learners learn and memorise through touching, moving, skipping, jogging, trampolining, role plays, field trips, projects, lab experiences, art and craft construction activities. Allow them the space to explore their world.”Teach me the way I learn”With an understanding of this paradigm researched extensively by Dunn & Dunn (2000), learning becomes more fun and certainly more productive. I can get lost if I am being given verbal directions but, on the other hand, give me a map and I can navigate with ease. My daughter is a visual learner like me. My son is an auditory learner and learns through brainstorming and discussions. He picks up lyrics of songs and makes poems at a drop of a hat. My husband is a kinaesthetic learner and has to move around to clarify his thinking. Observe the different people in your family and you will be fascinated by how each one is wired.If curriculum is about the ‘what’ of learning, then learning styles is about the ‘how’ of it. So this exam season, forget the panic and find out the most effective way your child learns. You will be helping him to get smart about learning and have fun to boot!
Sergio Aguero’s exquisite solo strike and late goals by Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho earned Manchester City a 3-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday in the first heavyweight showdown in the Premier League, compounding the champions’ early-season problems.Aguero made amends for a slew of early misses by exchanging passes with Yaya Toure, twisting inside his marker and placing a pinpoint shot inside the far post in the 32nd minute.Such was City’s dominance and attacking threat in the first half that Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho substituted captain John Terry at halftime to shake up his team.A hungry-looking City kept the initiative, though. Kompany headed in David Silva’s corner in the 79th minute and Fernandinho drove in a third six minutes later for a victory that could have a big psychological effect in the title race.AP

Twitter/Playoff Twitter/PlayoffTuesday night, the College Football Playoff committee unveiled its third set of rankings, which features no changes from 1-5, but a major shakeup after. Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Iowa held serve, but a number of teams, including Oklahoma, made major moves.At this point, while there is still a great deal of football to be played, a few things are obvious. There are seven teams that are in complete control of their own destiny. What does that really mean? If these seven teams win out, they’re locks for the College Football Playoff – no question. These squads are either undefeated or are involved in virtual play-in games that will knock out other contenders.The two teams with the best playoff odds that don’t control their own destiny? That’d be Oklahoma, which, given its loss to Texas, would need a little help to get in with an 11-1 record, and Notre Dame, which won’t have the luxury of claiming a conference championship, should it also finish with an 11-1 mark. Oddly enough, there are many who believe that the last playoff spot could come down to the Sooners and the Irish.Here are the seven teams that control their own destiny.7 Teams: Clemson >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8
Bijnore: A TikTok user has emerged as the prime suspect in three shocking murders that have taken place over the past five days in Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnore district. Thirty-year-old Ashwini Kumar is a drug addict, who uses the alias of Johnny Dada and uploads TikTok videos of himself posing as a ‘villain’. He also posts violent Facebook messages like ‘I will destroy everything’, ‘Devil is ready now’ and ‘See my havoc’. However, he has no criminal record and was known to be a harmless man, until he shot a local BJP leader’s 25-year-old son and his nephew, 26, following a dispute on September 27 in Barhapur area in Bijnore. After the cold-blooded murders, he fled the busy market waving a pistol.

Nikita was a local girl, who used to work with a hotel in Dubai and had come home for her wedding in Bijnor. She was to marry a sub-inspector posted with CISF in Chennai on December 2. However, she died a day after she was shot. According to Nitika’s family, Ashwini had made advances at her in 2002, when he used to frequent her uncle’s place in Daulatabad and was spurned by her. She later got a job in Dubai and settled there. The episode was forgotten, or so they thought.

However, police are yet to establish motive in the other two murders he committed four days earlier. Ashwini, a graduate, comes from a humble background in Barhapur town of Bijnore. His father was a clerk in a sugarcane cooperative society in Dhampur tehsil and his elder brother works in a private company in Dehradun. According to the family, Ashwini also used to work with a private firm in Delhi, but abruptly gave it up. His family believes that his drug addiction affected his mental health. Meanwhile, additional security forces have been deployed in Bijnore and a reward of Rs 25,000 has been announced for anyone providing any information about his whereabouts. Bijnore Superintendent of Police Sanjeev Tyagi said, “We have formed eight teams and a combing operation is underway to trace him. Posters announcing the bounty and carrying his pictures and personal details of Ashwini have also been put up at various locations. Locals are being requested to alert the police about his whereabouts.”
